Delightful Meeting.

One of the most delightful and in-
tensely interesting meetings in the
history of the church was the
monthly literary and social meeting
of the Woman's Missionary Society of
Buncombe Street Methodist Church
held yesterday afternoon in the
church parlors.

The rooms were most attractive
for the occasion in vases of hya-
cinth and other cut flowers. About
sixty-five ladies were present.

Mrs. James K. Daniel presided in
the absence of the President, Mrs.
George Wrigley. Mrs. Luther ren-
dered a beautiful vocal solo accom-
panied by Mrs. John W. Parker.

The feature of the meeting was
the report from the delegates who
have just returned from the annual
meeting of the Womans Missionary
Society of the Upper South Carolina
Conference, which as held in Rock

Mrs. W. D. Browning gave an ex-
cellent and carefully prepared report,
in which she spoke of the magnifi-
cent meeting at which there were
130 delegates, 81 of which were new
delegates who had never before at-
tended a conference. Mrs. George
Henry, who also went as a delegate
from the Buncombe Street Mission-
ary Society gave a most interesting

Mrs. G. D. Young, who attended
the conference as a delegate from
the St. Paul Methodist Church, was
present and gave a most interesting
account of the reception tendered the
delegates by Winthrop College.

The report that was received with
especial interest and pleasure was
the fact that of the three banners
offered by the Conference for the best
work in the missionary societies of
the state, two of these banners were
carried off by the Buncombe Street
Bethodist Church.

Columbia was awarded the honor
for that district [blurry]. Buncombe
Street won the banner for the best
Woman's Missionary Society in the
state and the Edna David Mission-

[article continues on column 3, top section]

ary Society was given the banner
offered for the best young ladies'
missionary society in the state.

In speaking of the presentation of
these banners, [teh] delegates said it
was a most interesting and note-
worthy occasion. The District Sec-
retary of Columbia with Mrs. W. D.
Browning, representing the Wom-
an's Missionary Society of Buncome
Street Methodist Church and Miss
Isabel [Beacham?], representing the
Edna David Missionary Society of
this church, were [blurry] to the
front, where Mrs. Stackhouse, Presi-
dent of the State Missionary So-
ciety of the Upper South Carolina
Conference, in a beautiful and im-
pressive address, presented these
banners of honor. It was a matter of
much pride, reported [teh] delegates
from Buncombe Street Church that
this church was found to be famed
throughout the state for the great
work it is doing in the missionary

Another feature of the conference
of interest to Greenville people was
that in the list of state officers
elected for the coming year, Mrs. J.
Thomas Arnold now of Spartanburg
but formerly a leader in the Mis-
sionary Society of Buncombe Street
Church, was elected First Vice Pres-
ident to fill the vacancy caused by
the resignation of Mrs. James W.
Kilgar, who was compelled to resign
the position she has filled so ad-
mirably because of ill health.

At the close of the meeting the
complete [?ing] and summer outfit
for the two orphans who are sup-
ported by the Woman's Missionary
Society, were secured and the box
with these outfits will be sent to the
[Edworth?] Orphanage in a few days.

Delicious refreshments in three
courses were then served by Mrs.
Carson, Mrs. [Hiolls?] and Mrs. Witte.

This was one of the most enjoyable
and delightful meetings ever held by
the Missionary Society of this church
and the ladies expect to have even
greater things to report at the next
annual meeting which will be held
next year in Gaffney.

Common garden sage brewed into a
heavy tea, with sulphur and alcohol
added, will turn gray, streaked and
faded hair beautifully dark and luxu-
riant. Mixing the Sage Tea and Sul-
phur recipe at home, though, is
troublesome. An easier way is to get
the ready-to-use preparation improv-
ed by the addition of other ingredi-
ents, costing about 50 cents a large
bottle, at drug stores, known as
"Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Com-
pound," thus avoiding a lot of muss.

While gray, faded hair is not sinful,
we all desire to retain our youthful
appearance and attractiveness. By
darkening your hair with Wyeth's
Sage and Sullphur Compound, no one
can tell, because it does it so natu-
rally, so evenly. You just dampen a
sponge or soft brush with it and draw
this through your hair, taking one
small strand at a time; by morning all
gray hairs have disappered. After
another application or two your hair
become beautifully dark, glossy, soft
and luxuriant, and you appear years
younger. Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur
Compound is a delightful toilet requi-
site. It is not intended for the cure,
initivation or prevention of disease.—
