Representatives of the Connecticut
Sunday School Association conducted
two interesting meetings in Newtown on
mursaay or last week, one in the after
noon at Taunton chapel and a second in
the evening at the Congregational church.
Considering that this is an especially busy
season of the year with the farmers, the
congregation that assembled in the even
ing was a large one. 1 he platform was
prettily decorated with fruit-tree blos
soms and pansies.
Alter a praise service, in which help
ful Bible promises were repeated, the
meeting took a novel shape in a "yes
and a bo" exercise on Sunday school
work. This -'was conducted by
Frank II. Bailey, of Danbury. Such
questions as these were propounded,
and various ones in the audience asked
their reasons for their votes : Is the su
perintendent responsible for order in the
school? Should gentlemen teachers be
appointed for male classes and lady
teachers 'for classes of their sex? -Should
the scholars be allowed the use of the
quarterly during the conduct of the les
son? lbe discussion which followed
these questions proved very suggestive,
and, though sometimes it was thought
the course to be followed would depend
entirely on the special conditions of the
school, yet practically the audience were
as one in their opinion.
ilisa t ioraLient of DaDbury then read a
very thoughtful paper on "Opportunities
for loung 1'eople in bunday school
work." These were some of the points
made : In this busy world, teeming with
its unsaved millions, we cannot afford to
limit the age of Sunday-workers, al
though it is the young people we want
to enlist in thi3 work for many reasons,
chief of which is the church of the fu
ture is in the Sunday-school of to-day.
The church is the tree, the Sunday
school the branch, so the church needs
the Sunday-school for the compl tion of
its being. There is no better development
of the Christian character than, that
which comes to the Sunday-school work
er. tie is brougnt into ttii study oi tne
Word, he learns by teaching it to others,
be gains strength of character by the use
of his powers. The vast majority of
members enter the church through the
Sunday school, and many of them are
brought to Christ by it directly. The
church's power is in its living members,
and these should be constantly recruited
through the Sunday-school, it is not
sufficient that the pupils be brought to
he rjoint of accepting Christ, for the
work is only begun when the pupils are
converted. With joining the church be
gins the most important worn or Duiia-
ing up souls in unrist. inus tne sun
day-school hecomes a preparatory
school, giving the. lessons or trutn
which, in after years, are to De lniused
by the Spirit and turned into living en
ergies of character.
What unceasing, concentratea euort
must be made, and it must be personal
effort. We do not make the matter per
sonal enough, but are ape to think there
is enough without me; 1 am only one.
Yes. but the Master calleth for you and
says, "tio. worn to-aay in my-vineyara;
the harvest truly is great and laborers
few." You cannot afford to let others
gleam the golden grain which may be
vours for tne reapiug
You have opportunities ior ounaay
school work in your home; the begin
nings of a human life for time and
for eternity occur at home, the most ef
fective school is home. It is in point of
time before all others and in point of
Dower before all others, for, years be
fore the teacher begins to affect - the
mind of a child, he 13 under the power
ful influence for good or evil in his home,
A child will for a long time believe wnat
his father, believes and clover what his
mother loves in spite of all that the
school and world may teach. A word in
behalf of the teacher may beget a strong
faith in him, and this will give force to
his teaching. ;
The lesson taught in the Sunday school
can supplement- and supply the lack of
teaching in the home. Not all homes
are centers of religious power; there are
godless homes, worldly-minded parents
ana unDetievmg .parents, ror tuese
homes the Sunday school is , the only
substitute and often the only influence
in the training of childhood. ,
The crying want of the present time is
that for accomplished teachers, we
want better teachers and more teachers
for rich and poor, children and adults.
A Sunday-school teacher must possess
knowledge and know how to use it. We
can have no permanent theological
school for the training of Sunday school
teachers, teachers' meetings will not fill
the want, and the best conventions leave
something undone.'. The answer is to be
found in the reserve class, and the nor
mal class. ' - ' -
We must never try to tate the boy out
of a boy to make him a Christian ; rath
er lead him the paths of faith, in God
Teach him the glory oi hard service for
Christ, teach him to pray, daily, to love
the Lord as he loves bis mother and to
be true everywhere;-this is the highest
aim of- Sunday school teacner'B me. -W".
H. Hall state secretary of the
Connecticut Sunday school association
closed the meeting with an address on
"The Best Sunday School." This school
he said, should be Biblical, educational
and evangelistic. He believed that many

unfair to mention names, but suffice to
say that when some 26 ladies and 25 gen
tlemen sat down to a sumptuous I'past
at noon,f ull justice was done to the boun
tiful meal and enough left over for sup
per, so plentiful had been the outpouring
of larders. This parish, one of the old

church edifice, rectory with glebe of sev

services are conducted by Kev Alexander
