   The following District Superintendents reported: Miss
Hannah Hudson, for the Washington C. H. district (see re-
port); Mrs. Sallie Watkins, for the Xenia district (see
report); Mrs. Mattie Ford, for the Columbus district. All
reports were very full and well received.
   The President stated what would consist of the District
Superintendent's report to be published, namely: Number
of meeting places, when and where; amount of collections;
disbursements; state briefly condition of district.  Mrs.
Barnes reported for the Cincinnati district. She stated she
was unable to interest anyone in the district this year, the
folks in the district not having the missionary spirit. A
letter was read from the Georgetown people stating they
had raised $5.00 for the work. They enclosed $1.00 for con-
tingent.
   The President called for delinquent societies. Rev. James
Maxwell stated that he had not been able to organize a
missionary society there. Rev. P.J. Blackburn was introduced.
The question was asked, what must we do toward the points
where they have no mite society? Shall they still continue
to receive renumeration from the Conference Branch?
Much discussion was raised. Rev. S. P. West, presiding
elder, was asked about the delinquent societies on his work.
He said he thought if we would take the meetings to them
he thought some information might lend inspiration to the
societies. He said he urged at every meeting held in the
district but what they needed was information concerning
the work.  The President of the North Ohio Branch ex-
plained about the work of the district superintendent,
stating that the superintendents are exceedingly active in
the work and visit points or keep in touch with them dur-
ing the year. They in turn reporting quarterly to the
president of the conference branch for further instructions.
Mrs. Ophelia C. Rogers, fraternal delegate to the North
