SIOUX dim WOMAinSEAOaEft. The sr«W York Sunday World Gives an Illustrated Article on Itov. Alary A. SofTord. In the last issue of the New York Sunday World are given the pictures of 17 women ministers of the United States, and a composite picture, a combination of the 17 pictures, is also given. Rev. Mary Safford of Sioux City is one of the ministers whose pictures are printed. In regard to Miss Safford, the article states: Rev. Mary A. Safford is pastor of the First Unitarian church of Sioux City, Iowa. She was ordained in 1880, minister of the Unitarian church. Her first pastorate was at Humboldt, Iowa, where she preached for five years, when she was called to the ministry of the Unitarian church at Sioux City, where she has preached us senior pastor for ten years. According to the census of 1880 there were 105 women ministers in the United States. In 1890 this number had increased to 1,236, tfhd hundreds have been ordained since the last census. If the rate of increase these figures show is maintained the census orl900 will show nearly 10,000 members of the gentler sex who occupy pulpits. The article says in conclusion: The pictures of the women ministers pre- dented by the Sunday World are doubtless fairly indicative of the appearance of the women who occupy pulpits in the United States. They are a good looking lot of women, educated, cultured and refined. Women outnumber men in the membership of the churches, and to the lay mind no reason can be seen why more of them should not become pastors. The success of those who have entered the field is encouraging for others who wish to desert the pew for the pulpit. WHAT OF THE HABYEST. Al. Adams Agreed to Give a Succotash Party Out of His Crop From Government Seeds. Here is a last spring's story from Al. Adams. It is time Al. reported on the crop he raised. He said: "We have received our two packages of garden seed from, our esteemed congressman, J; P. Dolliver. Our head clerk was going at once to plant them, and see if the turnip seed would grow cabbages or artichokes. But we calmly cautioned her to beware and called her attention to the direction on the outside of the package, which says: 'Official business, penalty for private use, $300.' She was very much alarmed and dropped the whole batch on the floor, remarking that the suit and expenses would probably eat up all the profits even if the seed was given to us. We went into special committee on -the affair and finally concluded to plant the whole ten kinds of seed in one patch, and after harvest, give a great big succotash party to all our delinquent subscribers, and if they didn't agree to come, we would send for them with a bench warrant, and have an idea that if our friends of that persuasion will be present on the occasion there will be no private use of anything that grows from those seeds. It will be lots of trouble, but we want to do right. ..'.'.•''. • . . PERSONAL MOVEMENTS. Mrs, Geo. 0. Call went to Des Moines last week to visit Mrs. Dr, Shore.
