to enjoy perfect health physically, but
she has become vory nervous. Her
physicians tliluk sho is suffering from
a nervous affection of the stomach, and
suggested that she bo fed until sho was
glutted, nnd that sho bo forced to take
food until sho turned sick. This Was
trlod, but sho ate all that was placed

Sunday School Toachor,
Kov. Kobert E. Johnson, well known as
former resident of this neighborhood, bui
now pastor of Bethel circuit, in Mont
gomery county, preached a vory oioi llont
sormon In tho Methodist Episcopal church
yesterday morning on tho contrast betweon
Hearers and Doers of tho Word." In
tho evening tho church v'hs crowded and a
ermon was dolivored by tho pastor os
pi cially to Sunday school touchers on tho
mportanco of their work.
Tho text was from Psalms31.11: "Como
yo children, hearkon unto me and I will
teach you tbo (ear of tho Lord." Tho
term "children" in tho toxt was ono of'on
dearmont, as in the toxt "if children then
heirs," and includes porsons of all bros
Tho Sunday school is not for children
only nono are too old to learn. But by
lorco of circumstances it deals principally
wiih childhood and whatover hR3 to do
with childood is important. Early im
pressions are lasting and they aro tho most
easily mado. Tbon many children receive
no othor religious instruction than thoy get
at tho Sunday school. This ought not to
be. But many parents aro so noglcctful ot
this grent duty that thoy givo out tho
moral training of their children, as thoy
do their mental, to tho teachor without
much caro as to how thoy aro trained or
whethor they are trained at all. This
makOB tho work of tho toachor ono of vast
importance and no little difficulty. Then
many homes which are moral are not
spiritual, lho training consists of thou
shalt and thou shall not without the savin
truths of tho gospel. Then tho Sunday
school toachor of to-day aro sowing th
seeds of tho civilization of tho twentieth
contury. They have a grip on tho con
science and tho habits, tho ballot boxos and
tho governments of tho future. Tho hope
of tho future lies in tho childhood of the
present. Among tho conditions of succoes
are, 1 A lofty conception of tho impor
tance and dignity of tho work. This is tha
secret of enthusiasm without which thoro
is no success anywhere. 2 A boundless
faith in tho adaptation of tho gospol to tho
ncods of childhood and tbo desirability of
early conversion. 3 An earnest dosiro for
a definite change of hoart this bolng tho
focal point of all our labors. Tho neod ol
tho church and Sunday school is not moro
pooplo of extraordinary parts, but moro in
telligent and faithful effort by pr-oplo i f
ordinary purls. Whore theso conditions
are met teachers will bo regular in their at
tendance or in tho ovo t of unavoidable
absonco will provide a suitable substitute.
They will make careful preparation to
teach will bo ptliont with tho orring, ro
momboring that thoy aro combating tho in
herited badnoss of a contury will look up
their absont scholurs through tho week,

publio worship of Ged will bring them to
prayer mooting and labor with them in re
vival services that thoy may bo soundly
converted to God and will thon continue
tboir care till they aro established in tho
faith. If men should set about raising po
tatoes on the principles that some people
follow in getting up or bringing down a
revival tbo potatoes would bo as scarco as
tho conyorts. Tho word of God must bo
planted in human hearts and watorod with
prayor and tended with caro in order to
the production of fruit into holiness.
