Tin' Sunday boIiooI census,
which wop taken in BcllOol sev
ernl days ago, though it wsjB
not complete, revealed sunn
very interesting ami uncourag?
ing faots: Out of 4U0 cards re?
ceived 109 proforrcd the Moth
ndist Sunday nohool; of this
number lot) claimed wombor
ship in ono or the othor of the
Methodist Sunday Bchools; and
Si' are non-members; S? prefer?
red the Baptist Sunday school,
SO of which are members and S
non-members; 13 prefor the
Christian Sunday school, all of

the Holiness Sunday school, all
of which are members; If.' pre
fer the Kpiseopal Sunday
school, ?s of which are motn
hers and 4 nph-membors, or
have DO Sunday school prefer?
ence and are non members.
In other words, :t7.'> out of the
4(hi cards are members und ??
non-members; that is '.'.'i :i-i per
cent, members find 0 i t per
cent, non-members
We are especially glad to
Btati thai sine the census whs
taken some of the rooms have
increased the Sunday school
enrollment to 100 per cent., and
we hone it Will not be long be
fore all the rooms cat make the
same report, then we believe
we can say our school holds the
banner for Sunday school at?
tendance as well us for many
other things
The Sunday schools as well
as the public schools through?
out our laud arc doing a noble
work. Though in one sense
their work is distinct and sep
arat?\ they have much in com?
mon, and should therefore unite
their great force-, each encour?
aging and helping the other,
wherever possible and practi?
cable.
An Invitation.
The Sunday schools of our
town meet at 10:00 a. m. each
Sabbath, taking up the work
which tho Sunday school nlone
can do for the children and
youth. But these schools are
not alone for the children; they
need all the older ones; they
need tho parent and the older
brot and oistors. Thoy ex
tone volcoui" to yon.
Consider.
There are IDS hours in the
week. Sunday school occupies
l-lC&th part of this time. Do
you not think, as a rational and
intelligent being, thai it will be
worth your while, from every
point of view, to give t his small
traction of a week to the study
of the Hilde in Sunday school?'
If you nre satisfied you can'
get along without it. are you
quite sure that it can do its best
work without you? 1 shall pass
through the world hut once.
Any good thinwc therefore, that
I can do, or an) kindness that 1
can show to any human being,
lot the do it now. Lot >"<? not
defer nor negh ol it, for I shall
not pnss this woj again.
The public school closes on
Thursday of this week for the
Christmas holidays, and re
sumes work again on Wednes?
day following New Year's Day.

By \V. T Qoodloe, Mgr.
Hoisted Flag.
Last Saturday afternoon Dr.
Mason W. Presley, of Philndel?
phia, who for several weeks Iuih
been a guest at the Monte Vista
Hotel, hoisted n beautiful red,
white and blue Hag on one of
the diz/y heights overlooking
the Gap. And there hangs a
story of no little interest.
The doctor, as has been re?
cently learned here, is the
founder of the American Society
Metaphysics-Dynamics; or, as
as he explains it, an association
[of persons who recognize and
live out the deeper meanings of
life. This meaning, the doctor
further says, is that of contem?
plating one's self as being and
becoming an oxternalization of
the Universal Mind -tie- sub?
stance and spirit of cosmic and
etheric totality. This may sound
obstruso at first, hut wheu we
consider that Universal Mind
(we call it (led) is everywhere
ns a creative spirit and must,
therefore, he in the minds of |
persons ns well as in what wci
call space, it does not Beom BO
strange.
!>r. Presley says that he has
enjoyed such exultation of spir?
it in climbing the mountainsI
about Big Stone (Ian that he I
desired to erect the Hag as a
token of appreciation of the
wonderful I'xhileration in the I
Appalachiau air.
