Another year las passé d in the history of the "Ladies' Charitable Union," bringing greater changes imong its members tlian the preceding year. Since our last annual meeting death has eutered our society and taken two of 18 prominent originators, Mrs. D. S. Wood and Mrs. II.

Seveuteen years ago a company of noble christian women assembled in the Methodist church to organize the present "Charitable Union ;" of that large number of christian workersbut two are stlll active raembers, Mrs. Phoebe Steele and Mrs. Maria Gilbert, who Uave not grown " weary in well doing," but luive proved themselves faithful and true tothe principies of the constitution. During the past year ten regular meetings of the society have been held, with an average attendanceof sixteen ; and we close the record of the year with a inemberehip of lilty-nine, an increase of tweiity-four over the nuniber of last year.
