" CHILDRKN'ri IAV " AT M. K. CHUllCII.
The services of the Methodist church at
the skating rioktbis morning, commencing
at 10:30 o'clock, will be of a peculiarly in
teresting and instructive nature it being
"Children's Day,"' and the celebration of
the church centennial year. Every ar
rangement tending to enhance the beauty
oi the surroundings and the impressivc
neis of the services has been carefully
looked after, it being the dc6irc ol tho
church to sow such seeds in the hearts of
the little folks to-day that It years to come
the lessons taught may bear good fruits
and God's choicest blessings be the portion
of those whoae sweet, Innocent voices shall
to-day mingle in songs of praise to Him
who raid, "Suffer little children to come
unto, me, and forbid them not, for of such
is the Kingdom of Heaven."
The history of the Methodist Kpiscopal
church dates back one hundred years the
first church being organized in 17K4, at
which time Frauds Asbury xvas ordained
bishop the first Christian bishop ccr or
dained on American soil. From that hour
until the present the MetbouUt Episcopal
church has been an apostolic church, send
ing tAr missionaries to preach the Gospel
to the settlers on the frontiers, to the poor
of both city and country, and to the heathen
at home and abroad. This has been a revi
val church, seeking and promoting the im
mediate conversion of both high
and low, rich and poor, bond and free,
and her fruits are represented not merely
by her one million seven hundred thousand
or church communicants and live million ol
church attendants, but in certain great de
partments of church work, such as Sunday
schools, educational enterprises, riiurrii
buildings and missions.
The leading agents in awakening modern
churches to the importance ol Sunday
schools were Robert Ualkes and .lohn
Wesley iu England, and Bishop Asbury in
America. The latter founded the first
Sunday school in the United States, of
which there is authentic record. In 178C,
the Church Discipline adopted in 1784
having provided for such schools,
Md at present there are 21,409 Sunday
schools of this denomination, with 1,790,
000 enrolled scholars, 229,ft00 teachers and
officers, aggregating an a w hole 2,0i",r00.
Over 80,000 conversions hau taken plac in
connection with the Sunday school lu the
last year. At the very first the church
founded a college for the education of her
children and youth, and for many succes
sive year lllnliop Asbury toiled for its
support ami endowment. Hut great dilli
ciiltieh were encountered "t till arly
puiiod. when the country was new and
poor following the w.ir of thu revolution
The now college was twice burned to the
ground, but some jcais Ijter the educa

ticipating iu to-day's services will live to

it nn occasion of which those who
come after in 1'Kt may read with pleasure
and prolit. An opportunity will bo oflercd
to-day for all to secure a very handsome
centenary historic medal, which of itself
is a thing of heniitv.
It is struck on a hard composite metal that
will hold well the sharpest lines. It is then
gilded with pure gold. Hut its great value
consists in its monumental and reprcscuta
tho character. It has been well said by
oue who has seen it that "the midal brings
before the mind the pioneer struggles of
Francis Asbnry and his co-laborers to es
tablish that Methodism which Matthew
Simpson replcsents In his day." It is also
an interesting fact that the lives of the two
Bishops cover the whole century which i
closing. When Bishop Asbury died Mat
thew Simpson was a boy five years old, who
bad been baptized by the BUhop. He has
now lived to be him-ell a Bishop, with the
world as his parish, for a period of thirty
two years, and is still vigorously and ably
leading on the church. It is. therefore, to
be hoped thnt many of the boys and girls,
who In this medal will take Bishop Sltnp
(f'i to their homes, may live to show his
'face to persons who will participate in the

wakes specialty of pastel painting.
-PeMeed of natural ability in this di
rection, and taking lessons of the best
painters of the day, Mr. Merritt has, by
long years of experience, gained for him
self an enviable reputation, rauVing only
the third best of all those of bis pro
fession in the United States. No
micli artist ha ever before visited the west
with a view of giving the people the benefit
of his alill. Mr. Merritt will for the pres
ent have his studio at his rooms in the ho
tel, where his wife, who docs not
enjoy ery good health, and on
whose account partly the west
ern trip was made, will be his only aseitiant
for the present. The specimens of work
which he has with Iilui, and which he would
be delighted to show to any one who has a
taste for the artistic, are beyond dispute the.
finest ever exhibited in this section of the
country. Orders hate already begun to
come in anil w e feel perfectly free In assert
ing that those who wish anything in this
line or admire skill of execution could not
do better than call upon Mr. Merritt.

FROM AN OLD CORRESPONDENT.
To thr Fdttor of tht Eagle:
The ladies or the "Harmony l'icsbytcriaii
church were accustomed to give a picnic
on the first day of May, which was looked
lorwatd to by the old as well asthc young.
But Nature's iJod seems to be opposed to
these festivals having a I'agan or Druiilii.il
origin. On the first of last May the rain fcl I
iu torrents, and the year before the wind j
blew and made such discordant imixic (
among the trees that oue of the literary
ladles wlio-c oiie is low and sweet, failed
to read an oiiginal "poem,'" written ex
pressly tor the occasion, but she did the i
next best thing, she bad it pubtislud in the
May.day frstiraN should be abolished
by common consent, because in this lati
tude and capriiious climate it is too early '
in the season to don summer garments.
Our ancestors who originated the May-day
festival were suu-worshipirs, who lived in j

GREAT COUNTIES OP THE SOUTH
WEST. A Trip Through the Country The Surround,
ing Towns Crop Prospects, Etc,
From two gentlemen who returned last
evening from a drive through Sedgwick,
Kingman, Harper and Sumner counties we
collect the following items ol interest:
Through the whole trip of two hundred
miles crops were found in excellent condi
tionwheat, corn, oats, fruits and all kinds
of grasses never promised better. Hun
dreds of large fields of wheat were
seen In these counties, and almost
without an exception, promised an unusu
ally heavy yield. Oats are perlectly im
mcnse,and corn is looking well everywhere,
standing from one to two feet tall.
One of the gentlemen who has seen much
of the finest land In many western states
says that the country ami climate arc de
lightful and the fertility of the soil unsur
passed. The little towns through which
they passed are on the boom, and property
on the railroad or several mlies away
from it is in great demand at good
prices. Cheney, the y oungest town v isited,
with a population of 1,000, is already sup
plied with all the adjuncts of a thrifty trad
ing point ; Murdock and Kingman now also
enjoy the advantages of the railroad and are
' pushing rapidly ahead
rhey visited the
ta. Anthony, the county seat of
a railroad, and is building up rapidly.
A good bell will be put on the Baptist
church at this place ere long.
Scarcely ever do Kansans get too much
rain, but soon they of this vicinity will get
ready to complain.
The Southern Kansas railway will extend
westward from Harper at once. Destina
tion not yet announced.
IMuiund Frautz, the genial book-keeper
of the Wellington Bank, has been viewing
I'ralt county during the week.
O. F. Hargis and wife h ive returned from
Illinois, mid report the southern portion
haing a very backward spring.
Au auditor is to be appointed for Sumner
county, she hating. acquired the regula
tion size while vet au infant. Judge Tor
rance has to decide from among the list of
applicants that starts with J. T. Hlckmau,
J. D. Beck, Capt. L. K. Meyers and W. W.
Blaine and Login will carry strong at the
head of the republican ticket iu Sumner.
Kiithusiaui beyond all precedent seized
our citiens with the announcement of the
first ballot. In the evening fire works, bon
fires, music and general rejoicing was the
order, (i real throngs crowded the streets
and some of tho democrats were in favor ol
suppressing the tlomoustrations. All at
tempts at speaking were drowned amid the
applause and uproar.
The wildest enthusiasm prevailed here
last night, the city was out en masse. An
immense bon-lire was lighted iu the public
square, about 8 o'clock and kept up until
afttr I o'tlock. The following gentlemen,
Isaac !. Heed, .lohu A. Murray, Col. Totter
and Lcdru Outbric addressed or attempted
to address the throng, but the playing of
the band, and continuous display of fire
works, and the wild rejoicings of the people
and cheering for Blaine, mado all attempts
at spiecli-maYing almost fruitless. The i
tiring of a small cannon and rockets con- ,
turned until 12 o'clock. It was altogether
the grandest display and jubilee that Wel
lington has ever had. This outburst of re
joicing is only a prcmonation of the euthu
siasin which this rapidly growing city of
0,000 will keep up till she helps to place iu
