Mr. Sheldon is known the world over
as the author of "In His Steps." This
book has been published in 17 different
languages, and in America has had a
circulation of several million copies and
15,000,000 in Great Britain. The book,
which is not copyrighted, has been pub
lished by fifteen different' houses in this
country and fifty houses in other coun
tries. This work gives him a greater ac
quaintance with more people than any
other author. He began his ministry in
Wateibury, this state, some thirty years
ago and was called to Topeka, Kan.,
where he built up a church of 1000 mem
bers, of which he is now "pastor-at-large."
Mr. Sheldon is on a speaking tour
through the United States, speaking at

The Sheriff Has Returned
Lamoille county's Sheriff. Geo. Town
has returned from his visit toj Washing,
ton and has resumed his official duties.
The Sheriff is telling some very inter,
esting tales about his visit to Washing
ton. The climate astonished him, it be
ing 78 in the shade one day"and the
green grass grew all around." He passed
a wheat field one day and again a few
days later, he observed the grain had
grown several inches. He visited the
capitol and had the pleasure of inspect
ing, among other places of note, the
President's room in that building and
sat in the President's chair, being told
by a Senator that that chair was "none
too good for the Sheriff of Lamoille
county." Altogether George had a fine
time, but he isn't saying much about his
refusing to take a sleeper because he
wanted "to be up and dressed if the cars
should run off the track."
Bible Reading in the Schools
Editor A'eies and Citizen : s
Believing that a wrong impression was
given at the union service Suuday even
insj in regard to Bible reading in the
schools of the to vu, 1 wish to make a
statement of the actual facts. In the
First Primary room Bible stories are
told, and a chilli's prayer is repeated by
t he c'lil Jrcn at the morning ex-'icises 1 n
tile Second Primary room Bible stories
are told, the Lord's Prayer and tlvj
Twenty Third Psalm repeated by the
pupils The Firs' and Sec -rd Intermedi
ate r:oms meet together for morning ex
ercises, where selection from the scrip
tures, especially adapted for public
sc!n)'ls, arc read and Lord's Prayer rc
prated. In the B. Grannmar room the
Bible is read and the Lord's Prayer re
peated. In the A Grammar room the
Lord's Prayer is repeated. At the Acad
emy the Bible is read and the Lord's
Prayer repeated, with .the assistance of
the local pastors regularly each week.
Standard religious hymns are sung in the
upper grades and High School. Out of
the twelve rural schools in session during
the winter term, the Bible was read and
the Lord's prayer repeated in eleven of
thrm at the morning exercises. There
fore, it is seen that Bible reading is the
practice, and not the exception, in the
schools ol the town.
