Most of the afternoon was taken up in the ordination of the new Bishops. The Bishops, i n their episcopal addresses, recommended the election of five new men, but the Conference, on motion, decided to elect six. The following were elected: Drs. John M. Moore, William F. McMurry, Urban V. W. Darlington, Frank N. Parker, Horace M. DuBose, and W-Ainsworth. On the following day, Dr, Parker, in a speech tc the General Conference, that seemed to come out of an honest heart, declined to accept the high office of Bishop. The college of Bishops, with his many friends, insisted on him to accept the office, but he would not be persuaded to be ordained. He gave as his reasons, first: His health has not been very good for some time, and the duties imposed upon a Bishop be-- ! ing so great he felt himself physically unable for the heavy-workHis second reason was, he was not sure he was called to the office of a Bishop. Dr. Parker is a son of Bishop Parker, and a brother of Dr. F. N. Parker, who is our Epworth League Secretary, ilis father lived a very short time after he was elected Bishop. Dr. Parker is now one of the Professors of Emory University. After Dr. Parker refused ordination Dr. James Cannon, Jr., was elected N. . Bishop. In the history of the church Dr. Parker is the third man to refuse to accept the office of Joshua Soul, in 1820, was elected, but because of an enactment of a law, which he believed to be unconstitutional, refused to be ordained, but four years later the General Conference repealed that law and elected him again and he accepted and was ordained. Several years ago the Conference elected A. G. Haygood, but he was engaged in some school work which he thought claimed his first attention, and he did not accept the office. By the next General Conference his duties with reference to school were performed, and he was again elected and ordained. In the selection of the new Bishop. county, but is now living in Texas.

The Methodist Church has a membership of 24.00G or 25,000 members. It is the strongest church in the city. The Baptist is nest in numerical strength, with a membership of about 0 members. This is the home of the Cand-lerMayor Asa Candler gave to Emory University one million dollars.

I was alwalk around and look through the wires at them, but not to go very close. Soldiers on the outside, heavily armed, were constantly keeping a keen eye upon them and visitors passing by. They were working some of them, I saw them bring in two large auto trucks filled with Germans and turn them inside the tall wire fence for their dinner. They took them out and in under heavy guarcl. They expect 1,100 more very soon. They look like men who are strong and well trained for the destructiosi of men. Tfoeir prison homes look very much like the houses at Camp Gordon. I thought if Germany odly had a heart of .flesh, the prisoners of tihe United-Staleand our Allies would net be so cruelly 'treated over there. Yesterday 1 went to Stone, Mountain, 16 nriles out from Atlanta, the most interesting place I have visited since coming here. Stone Mountain is the largest solid sock in the world. It is 16 miles .east of Atlanta, one of the nation's wonders, one cnile up from base to suimmit, and 8 miles around the base. They began the gigantic task of carving the Confederate Memorial Monument on the steep side of it. This great undertaking has been checked by the war. From the top one can see the Kenesaw mountains, forty miles from where another bloody battle was fought during the Civil war. In any direction from the top of the mountain one can see fifty miles, and feast the eyes upon magnificent scenery indescribable. To behold this world wonder is worth the travel of a long journey. Mc-Phers- on devastated.. The blaze is leaping at least fifty feet into the heavens, and lights up the surrounding country so well that print can be read, standing four miles from the well. This well is located not far from a number of good producere. On account of not heeding the admonition of our agricultural agent, and almost every paper published, the farmers are reaping the results of this negligence in the germination of their seed corn. It is a very expensive experiment to take chances of producing a good crop, when you are in doubt as to the advisability of using such seed. At least one-haof the crop will have to be replanted in order to get the desired stand. lf once more. We reached the German entanglements and began cutting them with our oiled clippers. We were careful, very careful, but we were not careful enough. They heard us. Over came two bombs. The three of us went down In a row. Jack and Tom never knew what hit them. I was hurt too badly to be able to get up. I lay there all night groaning calling for help. Twenty feet away I could hear the boches in their trench laughing at me, cursing me. Morning! My last I could endure it no more. I was dying bleeding. I said my last prayer. And then! Since the dawn of time I do not believe the world has seen a more glorious thing. From the hill tops our artillery laid down a box barrage flre and under It, heads raised like emperors and shoulders squared, came Elx men, stretcher bearers. As though they had been on parade they came forth in broad daylight Into the very teeth of the enemy and picked up what was left of Jack, Tom and me. As though we had been their own brothers they bore us back, swiftly, gently. Then do you know what those Huns did?

Patrick Furgeson was at Gilber-tofour miles north of Ruther-fordtocounty seat of Rutherford county, which adjoins Cleveland on the west. Col, Furgeson was a brave, skillful officer, and was recruiting among the numerous Royalists found in the western counties of this State and upper South Carolina ; and feeling was high among Patriots and Loyalists and retaliations and reprisals were of daily occurrence. Lord Cornwallis was at Charlotte, N. C, and it will be remembered that on May 20, 1775, Ephriam Brevard wrote the first Declaration' of Independence, more than a year prior to immortal document penned by Jefferson, and national in its scope and effects. On account of guerrilla tactics of people around Charlotte, Cornwallis termed it a "hornet's nest." The intention of Col. Furgeson and his contingent, was to join forces of Lord Cornwallis, at Charlotte, and he had 1,100 to 1,200 men.

Representatives of all war activities are urged and invited to participate in these Conferences and present their cause to those who are gathered together. These Conferences afford an especially splendid opportunity to War Savings workers in every county. Our campaign is on for the entire year. Many of these meetings will be held during the present month of May, and in .such counties the County Chairman and his organization must most actively with the representative of the Council of Defense in getting up the xieeting, as it will count very materially with you in the big June Drive which ic just ahead, of us. Where the Conference is to be held in a county during the , time of the Drive it will be a big booster for our activity, and wheTe it is to be &eld afterward, during the summer it will help to keep up interest in ours as well as the other war activities, and will materially help in your follow up campaign to see that those who pledge themselves in the June Drive meet :heir pledges and keep on saving and buying Thrift Stamps and War Savings Stamps. A general program has been mapped out by the Kentucky Council of which doubtless will be varied in different communities, as special ; speakers are secured for occasions. The general program is as follows: 30:00 a.m. A mass meeting will be held and the program will consist of devotional exercises, community singing, and speeches by noted patriots, thinkers and orators. lz2Q p.m. The fathers, mothers, relatives, and all members of the families of the soldier boys who are already in military service, as well as as all those who have boys who will be in the approaching draft, I are urged to attend this meeting. A special speaker, who is in ! touch with the war situation and who has a stirring message of patriotism, will address the meeting. The public 13 cordially invited to be present. atOO p.m. Forum: Subject, "The Different War Organizations." Representatives of the different war organizations, including Council of Defense, Food and Fuel Administrations, Liberty Loan, Women's War Work, War Savings, Red Cross, Knights of Colum- e bus, Y. M. C. A., Men, Chambers of Commerce, Edu- cational and Agricultural Organizations and all other patriotic i activities, are urged to be present and participate in the discus- sions. No representative should speak longer than ten minutes. j 3:30 p. m. Representatives of the different patriotic activities wHl be given an opportunity to call their workers into a special meeting for the purpose of studying their specific problems and perfecting their organizations. 7:30 p.m. A mass meeting will be held and the, program will consist of devotional exercises, community singing, patriotic music, and speeches by leaders of known reputation. In presenting its program of exercises for the War Conferences, the Coun--f- l of Defense puts it this way: There is but one patriotic business before the liberty-lovin- g people of the world today, and that is the monumental task of vanquishing an intoxicated jflitarism, of vindicating, perpetuating and defending human rights and Iiber- tjtoe, and of carrying the flag of democracy to victory. j .Ton can help win the war by attending the county war conference and studying the interpretations of the needs and the issues of the hour that will jjjo made. You can help by UBJngyj2ur Ujjluence in having a large delegation jof citizens to attend from your community? There is no one thing that will do more to awaken the patriotism of the people and make the Conference and all patrioticTmeetings a success than for tne choirs of all the churches and the people of the entire community to assemble at mass meetings and engage in community singing. It is earnestly Aeshred that the county council and all other patriotic organizations will get - together in an earnest effort to develop community singing and make it a part . of the program of the War Conference as well as a part of all patriotic which will be held from time to time in every section of the county. The Kentucky Council of Defense will furnish printed folders without cost containing the National Anthems and War Songs to all county councils desir--icthe same. Continuing, under the heading, "Will You Help?"- the Council of Defense , sends out the following valuable suggestions: The home can help by attending the Conference and by using its influ-- . eace in having the members of every home to attend. The school can help by organizing itself into a war of publicity committee with a view of promoting ever war effort, developing a positive patriotism, practicing community singing, attending the war conference and participating in its work. .The cEtlrch can help by delivering a patriotic sermon on the crisis of the "hour, and by announcing the program of the war conference at its regular services, giving publicity to it and urging the people to attend. The press can help by rendering invaluable assistance through its news and editorial columns, thereby giving publicity to the meeting and calling upon the people to give it earnest support. The County Superintendent, who is a member of the Advisory Commlt- tee of the Council of Defense, can help by sending out a letter to the leading citizens of the county, especially to the trustees of the schools, calling their attention to the Conference and asking them to attend the Conference, to organize their school districts for the Conference, and to take advantage of the opportunities offered. The farm demonstrator, who is a member of the Advisory Committee of the Council of Defense, can help by disseminating information among the masses and getting the agricultural organizations interested in the success of the meeting, and by participating in the program. The high schools of the county seat and the county can help by practicing community and patriotic singing and adjourning on the day of the Conference ,sjad participating in the song service.

Archbishop John J.

The metropolitan has 96 parishes in the city limits of St. Louis and 145 other parishes in the rural territory from which SL Louis obtains its staff of life in more senses than one. The Jewish community of St. Louis is an important one, comprising about 50,000 souls, according to a conservative estimate. Both the orthodox and the reformed wings of Judaism are intensely loyal to their country. Their rabbis will do everything in their power to enlist the active support of their religious followers in the Third Liberty Loan. Each of the great religious sects will, of course, have their own peculiar method of approach to the great task, but there is going to be a most healthy and friendly rivalry imaginable between them for the honor of doing the most by their beloved President. The St. Louis plan is to utilize every pulpit, every church bulletin, every religious channel of communication, every denominational organ, of whatever name or circulation, in the common labor of raising the necessary funds to sustain our soldiers and sailors, wherever they are.

Though in his eighty-seconyear, the venerable bishop is as vigdrous and as alert as he ever was, a veritable watchman on the tower of his country. When he learned of the great Liberty Loan drive to begin April 6, Bishop Tuttle wrote in an autographs letter the following virile message: "Fellow Americans: All that we are In good will and strong nerve and all that we have of spare means should be at the service of our country, now that sho is In a determined struggle for her own safety and for International rights and for freedom and Justice and fair play for all the world. "It's a time when, under the colors, and through Liberty Loans, and on the firing line, we should cry aloud with Shakespeare's Wolsey: "'Let all the ends thou alm'st at be thy country's, thy God's and 'truth's.' " The picturesque ecclesiastic will in every way possible lend his voice and hand to see the Liberty Loan through. d Fred G. Jones & Co. 1NCOR.PURATEP Brook & A.

About this time I saw a Federal officer on horseback riding up the road towards the confederates, accompanied by five or six soldiers on foot, who' were walking by the fence, half stooped, so as not to be seen by the enemy, The officer, although between the two fires, rode quietly along in the middle of the road, apparently indifferent to the danger. I expected every moment to see him fall from his horse, as he was riding directly up to the Confederate line and seemed to be in easy range. If he knew his danger, he did not discover it by his conduct, for he rode as erect as if he had been in a place of absolute security. He had gone about d of the distance from my gate to the top of the hill, when the Confederates yelling the battle cry, in a long line dashed over tne brow of the hill. At this point I felt that it was the part of prudence to retire from the window to a safer place. I did not see what became of the Federal officer, or of the men with him. The charge ended the fight. When I went out, one of the soldiers who had passed under the window, was lying out near a side gate of the yard with a shattered leg, which had to be amputated, the confederates who had been killed in tne fight were lying on the roadside, on some boards, which had been provided, and when I reached town, I learned that Capt. Carter was shot through the body, and was in a room of the hotel dying. Others were wounded in She fight, but not seriously. I am satisfied Capt. Garter was the officer whom I sav? gd up the hill towards the Confedone-thi.- mMmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm a i Receiving uaiiy rrom m. B. m.
