The Women's Home Missionary society, of the Detroit conference of the M. E. church, held a meeting in Detroit, Wednesday. The tribune gives the following as the part taken by the Ann Arbor delegates in the conference. The report of Mrs. Douglas of Ann Arbor, who has charge of the distribution of mite boxes throughout the conference, showed that there were about 1,400 of the boxes out, a large number of which had been placed during the last three months. Mrs. Douglas made a few brief remarles with regard ' to her work, saying that by this means very often small sums are saved for the work that would otherwise not be paid in. She said that in Ann Arbor the reUirns average about 55 cents from euch box. She also recommended that the funds from the mite boxes be devoted to the frontier fund. The report was adopted. Mrs. J. E. Beal of Ann Arbor, corresponding secretary of the conference, read a full account of the work done by her during the quarter showing the standing of various auxiliaries throughout the state. A resolution was also adopted authorizing the secretary to send letters of condolence to Mrs. John Davis, president of the National society, and to Mrs. Royer of Ann Arbor, both of whom have been lately bereaved of their husbands.
