"After a BOO * , "If There's Sunshine In Youi Heart , " by Prof. Excell , the work ot thi congress began with an address by Dr George R. Merrill of Chicago. Ho made : comparison between the blblo and the othei sacred books of the world such as the Vedas the Zcnda-Vcstu , the Koran of Mahome and the writings of Confucius. The ills tlngulshlng features of the bible ho set forth They arc , ho said , In summing up : Thi marvelous unity In variety which makes 1 peculiar ; the Interpretation and deflnlt' < significance It gives to the common story o the origin of creation ; Its different treat mcnt of national heroes ; Its moral law a the basis of civilization ; Its purity and dig nity of character , and its moral Influenci upon men. Its different books had been con trlbuted by men of all occupations fron herdsmen to priests and ot all condl lions of life from captives to kings , ye It has n single theme and Matthew take up the pen of Malachl. The Hebrew mora code hnd become the foundation of nioderi Jurisprudence. The lyrics of the bible prals God , whereas these of other pacrcd book praise men as demigods. The bible , h also said , has been railed a "wlnnowci book ; " on the other hand ho doubted If th greater portions of olner sacred books coul bo read In public before tin audience on ac count ot the questionable character of thel writings. He observed In conclusion tha the Sunday school work Is a deathless woi because the bible Is a deathless book. The chairman of the executive commlttc of the International association , B. F. Ja cobs of Chicago , followed with a talk o international Sunday school work. The pur pose of this work. Its plan , its progres and Its promise furnished him with an ai lucrative division of his subject. Its pur pose Is the "ingathering and upbuilding of the whole people , ns that of the churc has been "organization and evangelization. As to Its plan , ho said nothing can be ac omplished by the denominations workln separately. Therefore he counseled co operation ot them all by means of state oiinty and township organizations wit their respective conventions , which Is th method ot the International association. One ot the greatest difficulties he men tloned In connection with Sunday srhot work at present Is with the colored peopl of the south and their sectarian prejudice ! part being Baptists and the other pai Methodists and neither being willing t tolerate or co-operate with the other. Th result is that 1,000,000 colored children d not attend either Sunday or day school ! However , two men arc now working wit this element In the south and there are no1 three state organizations and twenty count organizations as a result so far. Much c this progress Is being made in Georgia. Colivi-lillniiH of ( hi * Vein- . In the state of Illinois as many ns seventy nine county conventions are being held thi fall and after them there will be organize institutes or training schools and also prl inary unions. Four great summer school have started this year In the country , one i New Jersey , another In Maine and a thlr at Chautauqua , and still another In Illlnoli Of 7,000 railroad men many belong to th Young Men's Christian Associations and al tend Sunday schools or take the Home dt partment lessons. The Homo departmci Is doing a great work. Mr. Jacobs estimated the Protestai strength of the country at 13,000,000 churc members and allowing a man , woman an child for each , he figured It out to a toti of S' ,000,000. With a united church of th strength and also the addition of 8,000,0 ( Roman Catholics , ho thought nothing la possible to the Christian use of the ballc for laws that make for righteousness. Tl speaker paid a high compliment to Arc ! bishop Ireland for that prelate's Ilber&Ill of religious sentiment. In conclusion ho said the International n soclatlon covered every stateot the unloi all the provinces of Canada , the twentj seven states of Mexico and now the bib would be carried Into Cuba and the Phlll ] pines. The next International convontic Is to be held at Atlanta In 189'J. He cnlU attention to the national convention to 1 held soon nt the City ot Mexico. The wor Is being carried Into Japan by Ikehar Mr. Jacobs referred to the report at Lei don last July showing the Sunday schoi hosts of the world to number , all told , 23 000.000. The United States government h ; published a Sunday school supplement i Its census report and the last Sunday scho convention in Massachusetts received ui precexlented attention from the Boston prcs All this , he remarked , Indicated the grci promise the future has In store for tl work. This morning will be given largely ovi to the different conferences In section and the afternoon will be again devoted ' the exposition or other forms of rccroi tion.

Ho was devoutly religious man , devoted to h people , and giving much of his time to tl care of the poor , the widows and the fall el-less. It Is yuld of him that In the wlntt he carried wood In his own arms , and ban fooled to those In distress , and his othi works of charity were equally noteworth ; His servant usually accompanied him c these pilgrimages of mercy , and the stoi runs that on ono cold wintry day the sei vant said ho could not go because of tl cold , and he was told by the king to to low In his footsteps and the snow wou ! not chill him.

The legend says Iladlslaus ai copied the challenge , and as ho npproaclu his brother , the king , ho heard the votco i an angel cautioning him not to strike i wound , and instead of fighting , ho fell c his knees before the king and begged h pardon , which was granted. The king never married , but gave h whole effort to caring for his subjects. I was an humble man , and his people aden him for his personal worth , and for tl many beneficent acts toward them. I gave untiring attention to propagatlr Christianity throughout his realm , ar while attending upon these devotions 1 met his death. He sought the church fi early mass on September 28 , 935 , and afti completing his prayers was met at tl door of the church by his brother Boleslai and some companions , and after a despera struggle he was murdered by them.

The reception was not comparable wit the ono that was In store , for the bravo sol dlers hnd they been able to accept the Ir vltatlon to spend the day nt the Transmit slsslppl Exposition , but It was so oordl ; that'the dusky lighters were still cheerln for Omaha ns their special train on tl : Union Pacific pulled out for the west. Ovi 200 colored women were on hand wit bunrlics of ( lowers , baskets of peache grapes and apples for the soldiers , whll their escorts had liberal supplies of smokln tobacco and cigars. In exchange for the ; favors the soldiers gave their hosts an hostesses souvenirs In the form of button bullets and hardtack , Inscribed with th record of the gallant regiment.

Goodsell of the Union Pacific pa scnger department was to accompany tli section out west , but didn't get a chan to board the itraln. It was explained nftu wards that this train did not carry the h rocs of San Juan , but only recruits of t ! regiment , who would go to Fort Douglas Cheyenne , Wyo. There was such a wild rush nt all of t ; Union Pacific otllclals In sight by the 1 dlgnant colored people that word w quickly telegraphed to the second sectli of the train at Council Bluffs that It mu bo stopped at , Omaha. The crowd was go- nalurcd and contented itself until1 : o'clock when It pulled in just north of tl depot.
