An Enjoyable Celebration at Ris
ing Sun Church.
A representative of the Message
spent last Sunday with the good
people of Rising Sun Christian
Church, near the electric railway,
six miles north of Mexico. The
site of the church is a most com
manding one it is on a great ele
vation, a bank of Salt River, the
building facing the east. You can
catch the first glimpse of the ris
ing sun at thut point, hence, we
suppose, the suggestion ot the
name, Rising Sun.
And, too, as we have often said
before in these columns, the sun
does not shine upon a better peo
ple that live in that community.
They are a church people, a Bible
school people, and thev stand for
anything else that tends toward
the moral uplift and general good
But this was Children's Day.
and, with that fine dinner in pros
pect, they drew an audience, too.
There were 217 persons in the
Sunday school that morning, a
record-breaking attendance for
any country church. Is there a
country church in Audrain that
can beat that record? We doubt,
in fact, if there is a church in the
State that can go ahead of that.
Here's the record of the classes

Every family brought dinner

in full sway on every hand.

He is a bright young fellow and
made a fine speech. He says there

awakening times in China are be

their plows and cultivate their
fields, but they are rapidly learn

however. The leaders of thought
are skeptical and hostile to all for
