The Republican of last week says,
"The average Democratic local leader
requires something to whiskey np tho

in "this, but tho Republican should not
attempt to make it appear that all po
litical corruption is confined to tho

the methods of politicians in this coun

tho leaders in Republican counties.
Unfortunately, too much whiskey is
used by tho majority party in every
county in tho state, and for tho dishon

Republican party is responsible. They

as that nil newly converted members of
thu church should enter n Sunday school
lass taught by some competent person
who regularly prepares the lesson beforo
trying to teach Ills class.
Itcv. Q. 1). Dcchnnt of Cutawlssa, on the
subject of Sunday school worship said nil
scholars should bo taught to worship from
nfnncy. That tho repeating of the npos-
os' creed should bo engaged In by tho
entire school In a reverential manner.
Hev. Horning of Mllllln wns cilled upon
to. respond to the topic, "Hehitlon of Sun
day school to tho church," and gave as tho
one great dllllculty In securing tho ntten-
ancu of Sunday school scholars at church,
was first the neglect of the parents at their
homes, who were not strict enough j nnd
second, the fault of the tencher In not urg
ing the class to attend worship In the sane-tuary.
The subject of "S. S. Treasury and the
congregation," was opened by B. F. Zarr,
who took tho position that the church
should defray all tho expenses of the Suu
school, collections should bo for bencvo.
lenco only. lie was met with considerable
opposition, uud tho subject was well dis
cussed, showing followers on both sides
of the question.
The subject of temperance In the Sunday
school was Introduced by Aaron Smith
who was followed by several speakers who
thought temperance ought not to bo re
strictcd to tho use of Intoxicating drink
alone, but to the uso of tobacco n3 well
Rev. D. M. Henlcel D. D. of CalawUsn,

On the subject of teachers meetings Mr.
A. W. Spear said It was an excellent place
to awaken new suggestions from Individ'
uals that could not bo brought out other
wise. The different qustions naked nnd
answered would call forth new Ideas. At
such meetings questions should be freely
asked. Some even thought a question bos a
good plan to adopt at such meetings.
In considering tho question of "Lessou
Helps and how to U3e them." Tho most
prominent suggestion was that we should
not confine ourselves entirely to the lesson
arranged for each Sabbath, but should vary
tho questions, and each sabbath give a
short review of tho preceding sabbath's
