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
"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
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.

The Apostles
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
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,
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.
