SENECA COUNTY SUNDAY SCHOOL
At the State Sunday School Con
vention, held in Nowalk, June 4lb,
arrangements were consummated for
the re-organization of Beneca county,
and In accordance with tbe oall issued
by tbe District Secretary, Rev. A: H.
Studebaker, of Bucyrus, a meeting
was beld in this city, at the Presby.
terian Church, on Monday and
Tuesday of this week, which
was attended by workers from
all parts of tbe county. Mon
day evening, the discussion of tbe
question, "Benefits of County Bun
day School Organization and Conven
tion," was opened by Rev. Harbaugh,
of Fostorla, followed by Revs. Ke-
fauver, Rupe, Messrs. C. H. Miller,
F. R. Stewart and others. Tbe de
sirableness and necessity of organiza
tion were prominently presented,
and a vote was taken at tbe close of
tbe meeting on the question,
"Shall Beneca county, be organized
immediately?" whicb resulted af
firmatively. Rsv. Studebaker. who
presided at this meeting, appointed i
committee on organization aud nom
inations, wbo reported on Tuesday
morning, when tbe following officers
were chosen for tbe coming year
President J. H. Colo.
Secretary C. 1. Kirsue.

Tuesday forenoon tbe discussion
tbe question, "With whom and with
what baa the Sunday School to do ?"
was followed by a "Question Draw
er," when questions of praotlcal im
portance were answered by promi
nent workers, in abort, spicy speech-
In tbe afternoon the general
theme, "Workers Qualified," was
divided Into two parts, and Rev. C.
M. Rupe spoke on "Workers Quali
fied by a Knowledge of God's
Work," and C.H. Miller on "Work
era Qualified by a Knowledge of
Methods." The Committee on En
rollment reported an attendance of
over a hundred delegates.
Tbe following resolutions were re
I. Tbat we congratulate tbe Sun
day School workers of the county up
on tbe re-organization of tbe Beneca
County Bunday School Union.
II. That we hold a County organi
zation to ie or great importance.
with reference to increase efficiency
in Bunday School work throughout
the county, and therefore pledge oar
selves, as christian workers in this
department of tbe Master's service,
to use our personal and united en
deavors to maintain and advance the
interests of this organization.
III. Tbat a thorough organization
of the county by townships, is
essential to success in tbe work, and
we call upon all interested (and wbo
are not ?) to give us their aid and in
fluence la tbe early consummation of
this great object.
Tuesday eveulug, Rev. A. H. Stu
debaker, of Bucyrus, spoke on
"Workers Consecrated." This ad
dress was replete with practical sug
gestions, and tbe subject bandied in a
very able manner, showing first the
essentials of success in any calling was
knowledge of It ; second, a
love for it ; also tbat a teacher needed
third "aptness to teach." These
qualifications applied to Sunday
School workers show tbat no half
hearted, indifferent or oareleas Instruc
tors can expect to succeed. Tbe de
mand for consecrated workers, come
also from the eternal results of the
work, and tbe limited time In wbicb
to do it. Tbe fact tbat a consecrated
work Is to be done, calls for conse
crated teachers, and the right, if one
unconsecrated worker be employed,
tbat two, ten, all, can be such. This is
no work for trifiers, tbe issue is too
momentous. After a service of song
tbe Convention adjourned to meet at
Attica, November Gth aud Ctb.
Meanwhile tbe work Is to be pushed
all ever tho County.
