Judge L. II. Estos of Memphis,
delivered a lecture on tha Sunday
School lesson at the Methodist Church
last Sunday morning at the hour of
the morning service, Mr. Curry, the
pastor, being too sick to fill his pul
pit. Judge Estos also delivered an
other very interesting lecture on Sun
day School work at the C. P. Church
Sunday night. All who heard him
in either lecture were very much edi
fied. He is an eloquent and fluent
talker, and one to listen to him would
not think he occupied th? judicial
bench for eight months in the year,
and in the wicked city of Memphis.
He seems so familiar with Sunday
School work, and so earnest in his ef
forts to promote the cause, you would
think his whole time was given to
the work. What a grand thing it
would be if all of our judges and pub
lie men were such characters.
