The fifth leaalon of the Sunday Fchocl

noon In the Calvary Haptlit church; Mr. Cnaa.

opened by ilnging the hymn entitled "Worthy

Rev. Alfred Taylor then a poke on the aabject,
The home atnrty clta." He ttld that at they
bid their children a round the tame to open their

they rem emi r that In all ihelr hoimehoid work

with the holy aptnu All know whether they
were phyalrally dead or allvej but many, when

There were two waya of home-atiidy for the

light on the atmly, and ranch will be given ta
well ta gained by keeping up a home-Btudv rlasa.
Borne lurenta require and compel their children
to atndy longraiima aa punuhmenr, a practice
that la by uo tneana beneficial,
bringing them together rigidly or atatelyla to
ntcn tiiem in conversation from time to time,
and with ail the love of the gospel manage to
take hold of them la a manner that will make It
pleating and attractive to them. To do tola,
something la required upon the part of the
teacher or parent that will make the houra pleas
ant to look oack upon for long years.
Iter, J. it. Vincent then made a few remarks
on the Bobjecr, "Help to Careful Brady." He Bald
that the first aud great help In Bible atady waa
(lie incut mat tauiv iruui uriTrn turn wnrn.
All the appnrttnanceanf modern tlmea waa noth
ing in comparison to the Illumination of the
lluly Hplrtt, and all that accepted that light
wuiim iv hub i rain era inu i aim mi in religion.
He believed that the sDlrltutl tide or their work
waa the moat Important aide. Hence he advo
cated teacnera' meetings or tuent prayer, lie
waabecomlngBomewhat of ttnakertand thought
that thev should bnah themselvea more down
before Jeans; and tetchert would do welt to go
Into their cloaeta, and In prayer prepare them
aetvea for their work. i
The second help was the DIMe, tnd tomehnw
all ahould have one. He knew a man In Kansas
that used more totacco in one week, than t
wonld coat to pun-hate aucn a book, (exhibiting
a tnedlnm-alted Dlble to the audience.) A lady
apent more on ornamentation In dresadurtng the
year than would purchase, three of them.
Third. The teaehera need a concordance aa a
help to lead them to knowledge. It la dry read
ing, but beneflriaL
Fourth, A blank book ahoald te procured and
used to make notea tnd obaervBtlona on the les
son, of the week, that a tearher may I fitted to
give the neceaury Inatrueilon.
Fifth. Procure ft good-alted acrap-bool, and
utilize the duly and Keektypaperaandclipout
all the good atorlea, tnd when they hat a leaaon
turn to the book, and they might find notea that
would come la harmony with the atudy.
ftlith. Have another ecrap-book for pictures
and engraving for little scholars. Nothing ran
be found more Intereatlng to children than an
Vevenlh. The use of commentaries. He did
not believe them the Alpha In Monday schools, ts
some did, but pucet them rather aa theOiarga.
The teacher should atndy the leaaon first, and
then come to the comment! rlea.
The moat careful way to aucceaifnl teaching
waa by practicing. Itegln during the week ou

then sung, after which Itev. Mr. 'iaylor sjioke
briefly ou the aublect, "Trwhera'm'etlnge tor
atudy, and teaehera' meellnga for aoctal ileaa

in Sunday tchoola waa that many of the teauhen

waa the formality that they could not apeak tr

yet all were working In the vineyard of Christ

aald that he bad come to learn, not to apeak. II
aa very easy for Itev. Mr. Taylor to ataud be
fore them aud tell them what to do, but It waa
quite a different matter to perform It, Ills achool
nnmbered aome eight hundred acbolara anl one
hnndred teatbera. la accepting the position he
determined that whal he possessed of energy,
leal and earncstnest he would pat Into the wik
end make the bett of it possible. He waa not a
theologian or much of a ftible ttndrtit, ttlll he
waa working to do hla testforthe school and
have everything work In harmnnv. The achool
had Increased in namltera. and he felt compll
raentexl at the result of hla laiwrm. The tearhera
ahould labor with the sincere determination to
do their best, and aa a consequence the tcholara
would love them and their teaching prove auc
reaaful. If they desired teaehera to attend meet
tnga they must make tneralntertatlng.
The question Ikix waa then opened, and among
othera propounded and wbk h were answered by
Itev. Mr. Vincent, wrre the following
