Excerpt: ...aid carried to many homes. Amount raised for the year, $67.24. Memphis.--Our Union meets monthly, and usually discusses two or three subjects on mission work. Our missionary cow is well, and its owner, Sister Rachel, furnishes good milk and butter to the sick free of charge, and will walk two miles to sell five cents' worth for the benefit of the Union. Amount raised during the year, $63.11. Nashville, Howard Church.--Our women are united in all lines of church, mission and industrial work. We are gradually growing in membership and enthusiasm.

Louisville, Ky.--The outlook is bright for a steady progress in the uplifting of humanity. Amount raised for the year, $21.
