CO THE REPRESENTATIVE EWSPAPER OF WALLOWA COUTY ENTERPRISE. OREGON- JULY HU902. OUR NEED AND SOME REHEDJES By Mrs. J. M. Gaily. The following was scad at the Sunday School Association held at Lostine, June 2."-2(: When we are brought to a close consideration of tins subject, difficult ies arise that seem to be insurmount able, and 1 feel entirely incapable of 'veil beginning to discuss it. A very great barrier to success be gins outside, and reaches within the Sabbath School. One of the greatest difficulties in the way, is the tendency of the youth, and even older people d our tunes, to an intemperate desire for diversion, and to follow fashion. I his desire is stimulated, cultivated and indulged. Many columns weekly and daily newspapers and niagi.incs, also advertisements and inventions for mere amusement, lead the minds occupy the 'time, and "Beguile the penny," and these lead on to all kinds of devices, to obtain the money that it takes to keen up all these imaein- ary needs, resulting very often in cheating, theft, forgery, or embezzling of intrusted funds, and instead of the tx pec ted pleasure, woe and suicide often results. Xothing short of the almightj power of God oan check this ' deaden ing influence." In the baccalaureate sermon at Vassar College, Resident Taylor spoke of the "Deadening Effect of Pleasure-seeking- in all the Higher Activities of Life," and expressed the opinion that al! that is good in our lives, is threathened by the pleasure seeking , spirit of the present age. Many students, he said, feel that the best, thing to be gotten from college is the chance to have a good time. This spirit undermines the physical vigor and dulls the mental power, and "We feci sure that it almost ob literates hpirituality." It people, who have professed Christ and claim to he Chiistiaus, could be made to see the danger signal, am' would marshal all their forces to tight ffj under His banner, following 1 1 is ex j j ample und obeying His commands, g j then this foe that threaten the pi Christian Sabbath, with its means of &' ! worship, could be held in cheek, and !-1 the Sunday schools and other societies ; organized in His name would tuem with children and youths eager to pi . learn and observe the ways of right s'' 1 ousness. j.j i Where are the worker.-? Have the ''majority of professing Christians in I V! this part of the hind renounced ts ; Christ? Are tin y not weakening the ' influence, we might sav killing the Ik soldi:, in every haftle to save sinners, ';. by the help they give the Christian's I.' foe? In time of war could n nation - he saved ll the great mass of strong, I, :thlc-hodicd men were to give no heed r, to the call to arms) and leave their cause to a struggling Mwitij-li laithtul majority? Have you deserted? Com pare t'.i" church-going, worshipful habits, ,f the Pilgrim Fathers, with li tho'.e of this generation, especially in f , this Western country. Those staunch i Ciod-fearing men laid the foundation ' of this mighty nation, as a Christian li' nation. Are we going to let nrosuer- jiity cause us to forget the only true M and living God, setting heart, soul, mind mil strength-on fleeting things': the Minday N-hooV A number of questions regarding the Sunday School and the best methods' of teach ing wese answered by field worker.
