MISSIONARY EXHIBITION AT THE PIER PAVILION. WESLEYAN DAY. The Rev. T. E. Ham presided over the opening ceremony on Friday, the day allotted to the Wesley an connexion, and an address was delivered by the Rev. W. R. Roberts, the Welsh circuit minister, who throughout the week had given great assistance in the Exhibition. CHILDREN AND ZESAXA DAY. ADDRESS BY LADY HERBERT ROBERTS. The cause of missionary work in the zenanas of India and China was intend- ed to be helped by the. Liandudno Mis- sionary Exhibition or- th* closing day, and the chair1 was taken by L,a¿- Herbert Roberts, of Bryngwena-llt, Abergele, on Saturday afternoon. Lady Roberts said she was much interested in missionary enterprise, especially in those two coun- tries. She had been closely connected with the Baptist denomination (the pro- moters of the exhibition), and she owed a great deal to two of the great preachers of that denomination, particularly- the late Rev. Charles Spurgeon, to whose ser- mons she listened when she was a young gill-I, and from whom she received great spiritual help.—(Applause.) She had been to China- and had seen something of the need there was for missionary enterprise there. When China became modernised and Christianised it would be a tremendou force in the world, but if it mereilv took over the modern civilisation without the religion of Christ a very great deal of harm would result to her people. To upset the old civilisation and to give them nothing in the place of their reli- gions, which, however misguided and mistaken they might be, were still a re- straining force in the lives of the people, would do more harm than good. But if we could take to them or civilisation and with it the greatest- and noblest religion, then we should confer upon them a price- less gift.—(Applause.) She knew many Indian gentlemen and some Indian ladies, and she had a great respect for the great Indian nation. Their women had been. however, kept in the background and very much in the dark, and yet they had a tremendous amount of power. The mother of the family in India was of almost supreme importance. Before we could really hope to Christianise India we musit influence the women. So she was glad to support the zenana mission- aries, who were going into the homes of the people. Qualified women doctors were able to enter1 zenanas, and to bring health, comfort, and consolation to many sufferers. An address as given on zenana, uission- work by Miss Jones, of Llanlyfni. the re- presentative of the Society for North Wales. In the evening' the iOSCiOpe lecture on "Congoland" was given by Mrs Stevens. Mr T. W. Griffiit, J.P., presided over a large audience. Financially the exhibition was most successful, and there can be no doubt that it will have accomplished its main ob- ject, i.e., that of arousing greater interest and zeal for missionary effort.
