CHUllCII. The services of the Methodist church at the skating rioktbis morning, commencing at 10:30 o'clock, will be of a peculiarly in teresting and instructive nature it being "Children's Day,"' and the celebration of the church centennial year. Every ar rangement tending to enhance the beauty oi the surroundings and the impressivc neis of the services has been carefully looked after, it being the dc6irc ol tho church to sow such seeds in the hearts of the little folks to-day that It years to come the lessons taught may bear good fruits and God's choicest blessings be the portion of those whoae sweet, Innocent voices shall to-day mingle in songs of praise to Him who raid, "Suffer little children to come unto, me, and forbid them not, for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven." The history of the Methodist Kpiscopal church dates back one hundred years the first church being organized in 17K4, at which time Frauds Asbury xvas ordained bishop the first Christian bishop ccr or dained on American soil. From that hour until the present the MetbouUt Episcopal church has been an apostolic church, send ing tAr missionaries to preach the Gospel to the settlers on the frontiers, to the poor of both city and country, and to the heathen at home and abroad. This has been a revi val church, seeking and promoting the im mediate conversion of both high and low, rich and poor, bond and free, and her fruits are represented not merely by her one million seven hundred thousand or church communicants and live million ol church attendants, but in certain great de partments of church work, such as Sunday schools, educational enterprises, riiurrii buildings and missions. The leading agents in awakening modern churches to the importance ol Sunday schools were Robert Ualkes and .lohn Wesley iu England, and Bishop Asbury in America. The latter founded the first Sunday school in the United States, of which there is authentic record. In 178C, the Church Discipline adopted in 1784 having provided for such schools, Md at present there are 21,409 Sunday schools of this denomination, with 1,790, 000 enrolled scholars, 229,ft00 teachers and officers, aggregating an a w hole 2,0i",r00. Over 80,000 conversions hau taken plac in connection with the Sunday school lu the last year. At the very first the church founded a college for the education of her children and youth, and for many succes sive year lllnliop Asbury toiled for its support ami endowment. Hut great dilli ciiltieh were encountered "t till arly puiiod. when the country was new and poor following the w.ir of thu revolution The now college was twice burned to the ground, but some jcais Ijter the educa tional work was commenced on a much larger cule. niid at the iKgiimiiig of this centennial year there wire l.r0 educational Institutions.

This will he the find. CKNT-NAItY C1III.IH HAY eer observed in the history of tho church, and none of the little children or those par ticipating iu to-day's services will live to see another. So let everyone try to make it nn occasion of which those who come after in 1'Kt may read with pleasure and prolit. An opportunity will bo oflercd to-day for all to secure a very handsome centenary historic medal, which of itself is a thing of heniitv. It is struck on a hard composite metal that will hold well the sharpest lines. It is then gilded with pure gold. Hut its great value consists in its monumental and reprcscuta tho character. It has been well said by oue who has seen it that "the midal brings before the mind the pioneer struggles of Francis Asbnry and his co-laborers to es tablish that Methodism which Matthew Simpson replcsents In his day." It is also an interesting fact that the lives of the two Bishops cover the whole century which i closing. When Bishop Asbury died Mat thew Simpson was a boy five years old, who bad been baptized by the BUhop. He has now lived to be him-ell a Bishop, with the world as his parish, for a period of thirty two years, and is still vigorously and ably leading on the church. It is. therefore, to be hoped thnt many of the boys and girls, who In this medal will take Bishop Sltnp (f'i to their homes, may live to show his 'face to persons who will participate in the services ol the second centennial of the church's organization. The seating capacity ol the rink has been Increased so that all who attend these ex ercises may be made comfortable, and no one need stay away for fcarof notobtainlng a seat.

Orders hate already begun to come in anil w e feel perfectly free In assert ing that those who wish anything in this line or admire skill of execution could not do better than call upon Mr. Merritt.

To thr Fdttor of tht Eagle: The ladies or the "Harmony l'icsbytcriaii church were accustomed to give a picnic on the first day of May, which was looked lorwatd to by the old as well asthc young. But Nature's iJod seems to be opposed to these festivals having a I'agan or Druiilii.il origin. On the first of last May the rain fcl I iu torrents, and the year before the wind j blew and made such discordant imixic ( among the trees that oue of the literary ladles wlio-c oiie is low and sweet, failed to read an oiiginal "poem,'" written ex pressly tor the occasion, but she did the i next best thing, she bad it pubtislud in the K.MiLK. ; May.day frstiraN should be abolished by common consent, because in this lati tude and capriiious climate it is too early ' in the season to don summer garments.

GREAT COUNTIES OP THE SOUTH WEST. A Trip Through the Country The Surround, ing Towns Crop Prospects, Etc, From two gentlemen who returned last evening from a drive through Sedgwick, Kingman, Harper and Sumner counties we collect the following items ol interest: Through the whole trip of two hundred miles crops were found in excellent condi tionwheat, corn, oats, fruits and all kinds of grasses never promised better. Hun dreds of large fields of wheat were seen In these counties, and almost without an exception, promised an unusu ally heavy yield. Oats are perlectly im mcnse,and corn is looking well everywhere, standing from one to two feet tall. One of the gentlemen who has seen much of the finest land In many western states says that the country ami climate arc de lightful and the fertility of the soil unsur passed. The little towns through which they passed are on the boom, and property on the railroad or several mlies away from it is in great demand at good prices. Cheney, the y oungest town v isited, with a population of 1,000, is already sup plied with all the adjuncts of a thrifty trad ing point ; Murdock and Kingman now also enjoy the advantages of the railroad and are ' pushing rapidly ahead rhey visited the ta. Anthony, the county seat of a railroad, and is building up rapidly. WELLINGTON WRINKLES. A good bell will be put on the Baptist church at this place ere long. Scarcely ever do Kansans get too much rain, but soon they of this vicinity will get ready to complain. The Southern Kansas railway will extend westward from Harper at once. Destina tion not yet announced. IMuiund Frautz, the genial book-keeper of the Wellington Bank, has been viewing I'ralt county during the week. O. F. Hargis and wife h ive returned from Illinois, mid report the southern portion haing a very backward spring. Au auditor is to be appointed for Sumner county, she hating. acquired the regula tion size while vet au infant. Judge Tor rance has to decide from among the list of applicants that starts with J. T. Hlckmau, J. D. Beck, Capt. L. K. Meyers and W. W. Cutlirie. Blaine and Login will carry strong at the head of the republican ticket iu Sumner. Kiithusiaui beyond all precedent seized our citiens with the announcement of the first ballot. In the evening fire works, bon fires, music and general rejoicing was the order, (i real throngs crowded the streets and some of tho democrats were in favor ol suppressing the tlomoustrations. All at tempts at speaking were drowned amid the applause and uproar. The wildest enthusiasm prevailed here last night, the city was out en masse. An immense bon-lire was lighted iu the public square, about 8 o'clock and kept up until afttr I o'tlock. The following gentlemen, Isaac !. Heed, .lohu A. Murray, Col. Totter and Lcdru Outbric addressed or attempted to address the throng, but the playing of the band, and continuous display of fire works, and the wild rejoicings of the people and cheering for Blaine, mado all attempts at spiecli-maYing almost fruitless. The i tiring of a small cannon and rockets con- , turned until 12 o'clock. It was altogether the grandest display and jubilee that Wel lington has ever had. This outburst of re joicing is only a prcmonation of the euthu siasin which this rapidly growing city of 0,000 will keep up till she helps to place iu THE the presidential chair a man who will be an I "a rumor that a California .teiega honor at the he ..I of the grandest nation on ' Will accompany the Maine II lame i r r.i -ii r-,.' hi.i. . club on its return, aud there is talk of tl.c-r.ee of the eartl.fames (,.
