The Elmendaro -Township Sunday School Institute and Convention was held in Wilson's grove on Eagle creek Sunday, June 19,. 1831... It was opened with singiugand prayer by Rev. O. W. Miller. Prof. Carmichael being . absent, the convention was conducted by Judge Culver. - , Topics were assigned to the regular speakers for a five minutes talk on each. After each topic was discussed by the speaker it was open to any one - present who had anything to add or wished to criticise anything said. The first topic was, "The Purpose of this Institute and Convention," assigned to Judge Culver. Space would uot per mit even an out-line of his five minutes' speech; like John Adams when he had finished'' speaking, nothing more -re mained to be said. The next topic, "The Real Object of Sunday Schools," was discussed by Rev, Walker, of nartford. Some of the leading thoughts of his speech were, that' by educating our children we moke Christians and secure freedom to our people. ' Children should be saved while young. Judge Culver thought that the pri mary object was to win souls to Christ, to develop the moral man to learn God's will and how to do it. Summary by O. W. Miller: The 3d topic was: "Qualifications of Officers and Teachers," by Rev. O. W. Miller " Some" of the most important qualifications spoken of, were that they should be real christians, not. nominal ; should ieel a great duty devolving upon them; should be courteous and sociable with their pupils; should be men of moral and mental ability, men of influ ence; must have executive . ability and be thoroughly informed ou the lesson ; must persevere. Mr. White enlarged on the importance of perseverance, and emphasized its sig nificance. Judge Bacheiler summarized the speeches and added that much more depended upon the teachers than upon the superintendent. "How to Prepare a Lesson" was next discussed by R. A. White. ' He said we must belive the Bible ; should know the whole Bible; should study the geogra phy of the Bible; should commence early in the week and not put it off to the last. Mrs.- Miller summarized. Messrs. Welch, Ross and Bifysingcr were ap. pointed to nominate a vice president for Elmcndaro township for the ensuing year. The convention then adjourned for one hour to partake of the good things which filled more titan a score of bas kets and which had been an veil harmless by as creditable a rors of female senti nels as .ever grat-ed a :;tmMii ting grouud. In a few moments the tables were spread and the writer was aoon too busily engaged to make any further re-. port of the proeeedings. . When the hour had expired the con veution was again called together and after worship the topic, "How to Teach a Lesson," was assigned to Frank Kizer. Mr. Kizer exhibited a chart, npon which bo had outlined the subject as follows: Must teach with the love of Christ in our hearts, knowingly, understand- ingly, prayerfully, energetically, cheer fully, faithfully, reverently, trustfully, pointedly, judiciously, socially, histor ically, geographically and objectively. Mr. Kizer, being . limited to a five min ules talk, was necessarily very brief. Mr. Walker endorsed what was said by Mr. Kixer, and added that much depended upon the mothers, lie illustrated by what Napoleon said of the mothers of France, and also gave the mother of John Wesley for example. ' Judge Bacheiler said that there was always a central thought in the lesson. sad the mind of the pupil should be for cibly impressed with its importance. I Mr. White summarised : . The topic, " How may the people be best brought in," was assigned lo Judge Bacheiler.' One waa to have a live Sunday-school and good singing, and labor earnestly. ' Mr. Walker said children and parents should attend together, Mr. Kizer added that one way was to make the Sunday school more interest ing. Mr. Ray summarized The next topic was, "How to Secure Regularity and Promptness," by Mrs. Miller. She said children - should be taught that tardiness and irregularity are inexcusable. . . The school room should be made inviting and pleasant by mottoa, pictures, flowers, etc. Mr. Kelley said that the best way to secure promptness in children. Is to be prompt ourselves. . Mr. Roes summarized. The topic: "How to secure more study of the lesson," was assigned to Mr. Ray. He said that the lessons cc the fol lowing week should always be assigned, so all should know what they had to learn. . If parents would study the lesson more the children would. He thought that teachers rely too much oa lesson helpe, Teschers shoald not do all the talking; pupils mast feel that they have something to do. The amount of study aeeored depends largely apon the man. ner in which the teacher conducts the recitation- Judge Culver believed in the moder ate use of remark. Summary by R. A. White. Dr. Brcincr, township vice president. reported four Sunday schools with a total average daily attendance of 176. Tlte committee nominated J. P. Rors for township vico president, who was elected by a Unanimous voto. The convention was dismissed by Rev. Walker, of Hartford. Rki-ortku. Attempted Itnrirlar at llltlertawn.

While drinking, she felt some substance, large and hard, pass down her throat. Thinking it to be a small stick she paid little attention to it at first, but she kept feeling some thing in her stomach, irritating and nauseating her, but never sufficient to produce vomiting. Nearly two weeks elapsed and the trouble continuing, she procured an emetic at thcirug store, and having taken it she was startled to find that the object ejected was a hard shelled, thousand -legged worm at least two inches in length, which appeared to have undergone very little change while in her stomach.
