Mrs. Ada Wallace Unruh, ex-presi-
dent of the suffrage organization, of
Oregon, will be in Meyersdale, Sunday
May 30th and an effort is being made
to hold a Union meeting in one of
larger churches. Mrs. Unruh is one of
the strongest and most eloquent of
National speakers and her coming
will be a treat to all who hear her
talk on this important subject.
Mrs. Unruh will lecture in the
Brethren church, Main street, Meyers-
dale, on Sunday evening, May 30.
Mrs. Unruh will also speak at Con-
fluence on Monday evemag; at Som-
erset, Tuesday evening; Stoyestown,
Wednesday evening; Hooversville,
Thursday evening; on Friday an all
day W. C. T.U. institute will be held
at Holsopple with Mrs. Unruh as the
principal speaker.
The Atlanta Chronicle says: Her
logic is electric, her rhetoric pictur-
esqe and vivid, her style nervous, fer-
vid and forceful. There are flashes of
wit, delicate bits of humor, sharp4
thrusts of sarcasm, catchy figures
and illustrations that illustrate. She is
posted and knows what she knows—
a rare gift. It is no dry stereotyped
lecturer but a discussion with a live
personality behind it.
The first of the spring and summer
Sunday evening concerts after the
evening preaching services, will be
held at the pavilion, at the corner of
Meyers avenue and Centre street
this coming Sabbath evening. Thanks, |
in advance, gentlemen. of our excel- |
lent band!
