Blue Ship for Japan. '
The Lutheran Church of the Redeemer
has a wide-awake Sunday ]
school. Never before in the history ,
of the church has there been such interest
shown in this part of church
work, nor has the attendance been so
large as now. About one month ago
the school was equally divided in
numbers, one-half were placed on
board a blue ship leaving New York i
for Japan; the other half are sailing ^
in a red ship. The former wears a ,
blue button as a badge; the latter, a
red one. Every attendance by each !,
member counts two miles on the jour- ,
ney. Every new member brought in ,
by anyone counts fifty miles for his
ship. Much interest" in manifested in '
the voyage. Each captain is expec- j
tant of reaching the faraway port
The following explains itself and
it is important that all who are in- :
