TEACH IN FAR NORTH MOTHER AND DAUGHTER ONLY WHITE RESIDENTS. They Tutor In Old Russian Settlement at Afognak, Alaska Are Well Treated by Natives of Unique Little island. Mrs. C. W. Hammond and her daughter are teaching in what is per haps the most interesting school under the stars and stripes. They are the teachers appointed by the government to conduct the native school at Afog nak, Alaska. Afognak, Alaska, is but little known to the people of the United States, yet it was the third town started by the Russians in the early part of the last century on the Pacific. It would have little reason to demand even the attention of the government to-day were it not for the fact that one of the best Indian schools conducted in the territory of Alaska is maintained there. Afognak is on an island of the same name in' southwestern Alaska. Mrs. C. W. Hammond and her daughter are registered at the Diller hotel. They have the task of teaching the SI pupils who are enrolled at the Afognak school, and it is not likely that in all the possessions of the United States Is there such a variety of color or intelligence among the na tives who are being educated. On one thing the natives, from the Aleuts to the Russian octoroons, are a unit. Every one is the most devout of Greek Catholics on Sunday. On other days they are simply natives. It was last year that Mrs. Hammond, who formerly lived at San Juan island, in Washington state, was appointed teacher at Afognak. When she ar rived there she found a school which had been established 20 years. It was rearranged to conform to modern ideas, and in a few weeks Mrs. Ham mond will, with her daughter, begin the fall term. "I enjoy the work," said Mrs. Ham mond, "for I find a great study in the natives. It would surprise people to know that of the 81 pupils in the school there is hardly one who does not take naturally to drawing. Why, it. is astonishing to find that little tots who are just able to toddle to the schoolhouse when famished with a pencil and paper begin drawing. I have fostered and encouraged this trait, and there are several of the old er children who are really clever. "Music, however, is the one thing that wins them, from the old, gray haired men and women to the little boys and girls. They love music. They can sing far better than an equal number of country children in the states. They have their favorite in struments, too, mandolins and ac cordions. "Do they have phonographs? Why, there Is not a popular air that has been sung in the United States in the last ten years that is not common in Afognak within three months after the record is made. I am taking a trunk full of records up with me. And among the records I had a demand for some real classical music. "So far as the studies' go, I cannot say that the natives are anxious to learn English in its higher branches. There are some who are quite well advanced, but there are also many who attend school only by compulsion, although they are very proud of what education they possess after reaching maturity. "Afognak shotts that the white blood must predominate. There are two villages. One is the real native Aleuts town; the other the half-castes. I have noticed that any native who has a drop of white blood in his or her veins looks down on the full blooded native." There are no white men stationed at Afognak. A few prospectors and hun ters call there occasionally, so Mrs. Hammond and her daughter are alone among the natives. They say they get along splendidly with them. Thrilling Moment in Fiction. The bomb went off with a dull and deafening roar and Second-Story Bill, the pious burglar, gazed into the black recesses of the vault. "At last!" he muttered, hoarsely, "my prayers are answered. Fortune is mine." He went in, but in a moment he emerged, his face white with the rage of disappointment. "Curse them!" he cried in his wrath. "The receivers have been here before me." Hut he was wrong. The vault had contained the firm's collateral for speculators' loans and the recent fall in the market had completely wiped out the margins. Success. Irish Street Children. The Irish street children must sure ly be to visitors the most surpris ing of all their institutions. In ready humor and in bright good humor, in an unquenchable spirit of playfulness, with the most diliefit and painstaking 'attention to business, reinforced by the most surprising art of coaxing, these barefooted citizens give a day long comedy. Sometimes they seem to embody and symbolize all Ireland, its gay poverty and its good humor in depressing circumstances. Incriminating Evidence. Station Sergeant Are you married? Prisoner No. sir.

February 4. j A small hole was burned in the 1 Hoor of the north room of the school house one night last week probably caused by a hot cinder falling out of the stove. Fortunately, t he tire went out and no great damage was done, but was a pretty narrow escape. Emmett Burns came in one day last week from Hoi yoke, Colo., for a few days visit with friends. He brought in live cars of cattle and sold them on the St. Joe market at a good price. Emmett says he likes his new home first rate and times are good in his section of the countr Fire from a defective Hue caught tire in the south end of the kitchen of J. W. Heckahorn's house iast Friday morning. Fortunately it was noticed by some of the men at the depot as soon as it broke through the roof. There was a very strong north wind blowing and a few minutes more start would have made a very bad fire. There was plenty of water handy and the tire was soon extinguished in short order with about $15 damage to the building. D. W. Jessup and family have ar rived here from Louisville, Ky., and will move on to the old E. A. Brown farm north of town. S. M. Russel who was coming through with Mr. Jessup's emigrant car, in attempting to get off of the car in the yards at St. Joe Sunday morning fell through a bridge breaking his arm and leg and hurting his head quite badly. He was taken to Ensworth hospital and it is thought he will recover. Mr. Jessup went to St. Joe on tiie evening train Sunday to render any assistance to Mr. Russel lie could. C. D. Zook, President.

THE KANSAS CITY JOURNAL Kansas City, Mo. The Apostles Imprisoned Sodaj Sell ol Let soa for Feb. 14, 1909 Specially Arranged for This Paper L.ESSOX TEXT. Acts 5:17-32. Memory verses. 19, 20. GOLDEN TEXT. Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness sake; for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Matt. 5:10. TIME. Immediately after the last les son. The exact date is unknown, but be tween A. D. 30 and 33. PLACE. Jerusalem; the preaching was in one of the porticos of the outer court of the temple. The trial was in the hall of the sanhedrim, on the temple hill "be tween the portico and the temple. Comment and Suggestive Thought. After the experience of the apostles with Ananias (our last lesson), there was such an increase in the numbers and influence of the church, so many good deeds were wrought, so many of the sick were healed, so widely pre vailed the new teaching, that the whole community was stirred, and even the rulers felt the power and the danger to their position and influence. Their reasons for opposing the Gos pel were all reasons why they should have favored it. 1. The lessening of their influence and the loss ot prestige was what ought to take place when, the rulers ruled for themselves and not for the people. 2. The teaching they opposed was the very salvation of the nation. 3. The apostles "filled Jerusalem, with their teaching." Their success brought joy, salvation, peace, fresh life to great numbers. 4. The apostles and the church were bringing healing to the people, lessen ing suffering, giving to the poor, re ducing crime and vice, giving reality to the angels' song of "Peace, Good Will to Men," they were doing what every good ruler seeks to have done for his people. V. 19. "But the (R. V., "an"), angel of the Lord." One of the "minlstcimg spirits sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation."' (Heb. 1:14). "In this Book of the Acta the word angel occurs 20 times." "The ministry of angels." "I believe that angels wait on us as truly as ever they waited on Abraham, or Jacob, or Moses, or JSlijah, or Mary, or Jesus himself. The medieval painters were food of filling the background of the infancy with countless angels; the rep resentation, though literally false, was morally true. I believe that angels are. encamping around them that fear the Lord." George Dana Boardman, D. D. "Opened the prison doors." Silently, without the knowledge of the guards (v. 23), who were asleep or had re laxed their vigilance, being confident of the strength of their prison. Reasons for this intervention. 1. The apostles and the church were still In training for greater battles and harder work. Hence by this deliverance they were taught faith in God, and courage, and assurance that their bold, defiant course was approved by God. 2. It was a great advantage to the cause, as they went on preaching the gospel, impressing the people that it was God's cause, and the apostles were his messengers, speaking his truth. 3. It was a direct refutation of the Sadducees' doctrine, a blow at their position. 4. It tended to impress the minds of the enemies of the apostles with respect for them as under God's spe cial protection, and probably suggest ed to Gamaliel (v. 34-39), his fear that by opposing the apostles' the rulers might be opposing God himseif. 5. Hence, it influenced , the result of the trial, and ma'de the escape from prison a type of their greater deliver ance from the' power and' wicked de sires of the rulers. -r V. 21. "The apostles obeyed, and en tered the temple early in the morn ing," R. V., "about. daybreak," as soon as the gates were ppened. "Called the council." "the sanhedrim!" "together, and." better "even"" "all the senate." Peter's argument. Critics "'have no ticed the structure of Peter's brief de fense as one of the finest specimens of pleading on record, clear, direct, true, personal, an argument without a flaw. Of course only the barest out lines are given in this report. See Peter's previous address. , . The charges against the apostles. (1) Disobedience to and defiance of the national and lawful authorities. (2) Hence disloyalty, almost treason, to their country. (:)) Charges to them seemingly slanderous, against their rulers, that they themselves were dis obeying their God in whose name they ruled. These charges were not mere ly serious, but. to a Palestinian Jew, overwhelming. The boldness and courage of the apostles was very great. Threefold Victory of the. Apostles. First. The arraignment of the apostles gave them an opportunity to preach the Gospel faithfully to tlie rulers, who could not easily be reached in any oth er way. Second. They were released from their bonds, and were free to continue their work with all the more power . because of the outcome of the efforts to put a stop to it. Third. They themselves received a new inspiration of power. They re joiced in their sufferings for Jesus sake, and in public and in private, in the temple courts, and from house to house, they preached that Jesus was the expected .Messiah. The attractiveness and persuasive power of the apostles and the early church is very marked, and was one of the most influential means of lead ing others to become Christians. The piety of some men lacks the genial, lovable qualities which would enable to attract young and old to the religion they love.
