                   OF THE A. M. E. CHURCH.                  17

    Miscellaneous business was taken up at this juncture.
    Contingent money was paid by several societies.
    Discussion of difficulties in M. M. S. work was taken up,
and several questions were asked. Mrs. Ross asked for a plan to
get good women to join and attend the society. Rev. Thomas
told of difficulties he had to get the church interested in all of
the widely different interests that go to make up the sum of
denominational demands. Mrs. Mitchell suggested that the
pastor could do much to make the church broad. She spoke of
Prof. Clarke's effort at Wilberforce, so that the church not only
met general demands but contributed to missions in India.
    Committees finished by President.
    The following persons were introduced:-Mrs. V. A. Troy,
Walnut Hills; Mrs. Melissa Hunster, Cincinnati; Mrs. Mattie
Whitlow, Cincinnati; Mrs. Mattie Smith, Cincinnati; Mrs.
Georganna White, Cincinnati.
    Collection, $1.50.
    Benediction by Rev. S. White.
                     FRIDAY AFTERNOON.

    The afternoon session opened with a song, "Only an Armor-
    Prayer and Scripture lesson by Miss Susannah Coleman;
Lesson II. Cor. 6.
    This being the afternoon for the Junior Rally, the Sunbeams
of Allen Temple were on the front seats all sweet and smiling.
They sang first, "Sunshine in My Soul," and then Edna Scott
read in a clear, distinct voice, a paper on Africa. After singing,
"More About Jesus," Mamie Ross, daughter of Rev. I. N.
Ross, read a paper on Cuba.
    Mrs. Waters then arose, and after blaming all her inspiration
on the innocent Juniors, read a poem entitled, "The Mission of
a Star." (See Page 48.)
    Singing, "I should like to have been with them there."
