That he for the first timo showed a

THE IDEAL SUPERINTEND-ANT
Defined By Webster As Something
Visionary, Existing Only In
Fancy or Imagination.
CHURCH NEEDS REVIVALS OF IDEALS
THAT JESUS GAVE
Mr. Webster has defined Ideal as
"something visionary, existing only
in fancy or imagination." According
to this definition no one has ever
seen an ideal superintendent, for he
is only a creature of the imagination
an ignusfatcms of the brain But
let us not despise the ideal because
it is unseen and unattainable for the
"tilings" which are seen arc temporal
but the things which arc not seen
arc eternal, saith the scriptures.
But wc live in an age and in a
that believes m going aftcr the
things ihat arc seen psuticularly the
"Almighty Dollar" which is a symbol
for tho things seen. I think
perhaps that is one rcasou the Chur.'h
of God docs not wield the influence
it should today.
Wc arc to busy seeking after the
material thing? of life to heed the
call of the unseen spiritual world.
The church today needs a revival of
interest in the ideals th.it Jesus gave
the world. He has given to us the
greatest of all ideals in tho command
"Be ye perfect even as your Father
which is in Heaven is perfect "
Thus arc wc reminded that every life
should have ira ideals and the better
the ideal, the better the hie. The
great men ot the past, tho men who
I ave done most for the progress ol
humanity have all been men of high
ideals. Among the ranks of these
benefactors of mankind none-deserve
greater praise than the faithful superintendent
of Sunday School.
Who can estimate the value of
their labors upon tho hearts and
minds of men? It is well therefore,
that wc should consider soine of the
characteristics of the ideal Sup't
First of all we notice that he must
bo a man after God's own heart A
man ol human and tender sympathy
with a heart full of lovo to God and
man. Such a man will never suppose
that he has reached his ideal
but like Saul, of Tarsus, will always be
pressing towards the mark of tho
prize of the high calling in Christ.
Ho will of course, be a lover of children
after the pattern of Him who
took the littre ones in his arms and
blessed thcra saying, "Of such is the
Kingdom of Heaven" He will study
the heart and mind of tho child in
order to reach and win them for
Christ. He should get down to a
basis of comradeship and fellow interest
with all the school making
their joys his joys and their griefs
his griefs after tho manner of Paul
wko was made all things to ail men,
that ho might by all means, seve
The superintendent must always
be a good judge of human nature in
order to eet the best results from
teacher and pupil. He should sec
that each class is supplied with the
best teacher he can seoune for that
particular class. He should be a
studont of methods ana management
of Sunday School. He should en
dcavor to keep out tke rts trd
life and fnter.est in the exercises.
I think perhaps many p'ooplc are
kept away from church aad Sunday
School by the Wfelcss, listless way
m w.liich tho services aro conducted.
We need to learn a lesson from the
world here. Tho Savior's words aro
still truo; "The cjnldroja of the
world are wiser in their roncratio

FARMERS' INSTITUTE BULLETIN.
Yiaces and Dales of County Farmers'

MEETING IN TfoJS COUNTY WILL BE
HELD XV PINEY,
Tho Farmers J Institute Bulletin
sent us yesterday by Commissioner
of Agriculture, pi. C. Rankin, was
most too lcngth.y lor our space in this
issue, in consequence of whi 'h wo
have out it to what is most
important to, this, the Fourth District,
namely: His address and the
dates of all Institutes of this district.
On the whole, tlio work of the
Farmers Ip'titule held dining the
year rt l!i(H was verv satisfactory
arn'Miows h inirkcd progress in this
important jrirt of progressiva Agri
culture and i morel v in it infancy.
The law roUiro the Commissioner
of Agriculture to hold a Fanners'
Institute of two days' duration in
each county in the State and this law
has been complied with in every
ense of tlm word, resulting in a
largo attendance and much interest.
In a majority of the counties tho citizens
and farmers how that they are
interested want to help and assist
in this work. A few do not show
any interest and it is almost impossible
to arouse any interest or get
any attendance at the Couity Institutes
failing -to reaUzc wh&i the work
is and what results may be obtained,
fiom tho expenditure of tho State's
money in this 'ay I do not say
this in a spirit of criticism, but that
people will realize what the work is
and means to them.
An organizer or advance man was
sent beforo the Institutes were to bo
held in the counties composing tin
district the State having bvn
into tour Agricultural
by me for convenience, and he
had posters printed, circulars mailed,
hall rented and aroused interest by
enlisting the business men to give
premiums and lend their assistance
in every way possible. This feature
helped to arouse much interest and
injected enthusiasm whero before in
many of the counties no interest had
evor becu taken and tho most successful
meetings were hold in these
nuuties. Several counties wcro unorganized
and the organizer made
new organisations and I am glad to
say we have good workers in almost
every county in the State at tho
present timo and the work bids fair
to beconio popular and will be tho
means of putting many dollars into
the farmers' pockets and landing
great aid to the agricultural cause.
In several counties largo premiums
lists were given by tho farmers and
maitfiiants and caused splendid exhibitions
to bo contested for and enlisted
many people in tho work that
heretofore knew nothing of it.
Ibis tamed the work to become
known to a larger number of people
'than hai over boon known of it and
at cah place a .ilendid nccleus was
left to begin flic wonk of 1,908.

on Nov. 1st. I have decided to begin
tho work this year two months
later as the work suffered in attendance
and interest because of the
farmers' busy season during the
months of July and August. The
best meetings were held after September,
Farmers, Organization were given
special interest on each program
and resulted in many clubs becoming
active in holding monthly or bimonthly
moetings and causing old
clubs to be revived and begin active
work. Several new clubs were organized
and new members were added
to three-fourths of the Earmcrs'
Clubs of the State. Mto attention
will be paid this year to this part of
the work. The State Fair was
prominence on every program and
aided greatly in helping this great

Above all things, the superintend

and prayer. Whatever other
he may possess he is sure
to meet with obsticlcs and discouragements

He should take for his motto the
words of James, "If any man lack
wisdom let him of God who givcth
to all men liberally and
not but let him ask in faith.' I
suppose it is needless to say the superintendent
should be punctual for
whatever his abilities may be if he
is not there when needed, his talent
will be wasted. In two ways his
absences will injure tho school.
First, othors are likely to follow his
example and the attendance will decrease.
Second, his absence will effect the
exorcisos because n substitute can
take the placo of the regular superintendent.
And now to the membership of the
school, I want to say you can have a
hand in tho making of au ideal superintendent.
By your sympathy,
co oppcration and prayers you can
help and encourage him in his work.
Vou may uphold his hands as Aaron
and Ilur stayed up the hands of
Moses. Also to the membership wc
must look lor our future superintendent.
Lot me admodish you
therefore to be diligent in the study
of God's Holy word and in the development
of your heart and mind
that you may prove to be "Workmen
that need not to be ashame. rightly
dividing the word of Faith."
St. Paul says, "Let us covet earnest

Sunday School superintendent is second

cvnry Christian should covet tho
