          WOMAN'S MITE MISSIONARY SOCIETY                7

Missionary, $100. $580 00 was pledged.
   Mrs. Dovie Nichols having been appointed at Cedarville
to take charge of the money for the Basuto Mission House,
was duly affirmed at this convention.
   A resolution pertaining to the output of money was of-
fered by Mrs. Clark. On motion the resolution was adopted
as read.  See resolution.  The question was raised by the
President if we expected to stand by the President in regard
to the paving of monies to ministers on mission charges.
The discussion was hot many expressing themselves that it
was time the women were waking up as to their rights.
Mrs. Williams, of the North Ohio Branch, stated that the
North Ohio Branch had a petition to present to the Annual
Conference pertaining to the handling of their monies. Rev.
S. P. West spoke pertaining to the work, assuring us that
the men are with us.  He advised that all monies be paid
quarterly.  He further suggested that a report be made and
sent to the Annual Conference that it may be placed in the
Annual Conference minutes. Rev. J. O. Haithcox made a
statement to the convention that the men did not want to
spend the money belonging to the convention, but they
wanted co-operation. He asks that the executive committee
of the convention sit with the financial committee at con-
ference that they may be able to pay out money according-
ly to our reports so that no man be given money that had
been given money by the Conference Branch without in-
vestigation. After much discussion we recessed for supper.
              Friday Evening, 6:30 O'clock
   The evening meeting was opened with a song service
conducted by Mrs. Sarah Garnes.  Favorite songs were
sung, "Dwelling in Beulah," "Oh for a Thousand Tongues,"
"He Lifted Me" and many other beautiful songs were sung.
   The Mite Missionary convention was organized in 1893
and was divided in 1896 and a motion prevailed that the
twenty-fifth anniversary be celebrated in 1921. A commit-
tee was appointed to make arrangements--Mrs. Josie
Collins, Mrs. Hattie Maxwell, Mrs. C. D. White, Mrs. M. H.
Evans, Mrs. Sarah Garnes, Mrs. Anna Harris, Mrs. L. E.
White, said committee to find a place of meeting.  The
chairman of the Thank Offering Fund reported. She re-
ported $17.90 in treasury. On motion the report was
adopted. Rev. St. Clair was introduced and made remarks
concerning the Missionary Society at Chillicothe. Mrs.
Lutie Tush, secretary-treasurer of the Special Fund, re-
ported $34.00, money that was raised last year. The com-
mittee that visited the Daily Vacation Bible School reported
