improved. There are several new
cases ; some of the first are con
valescent. Three of our leading
merchants are now down with
the fever, B. C, Cody, Jas. Rufty
and Irvin Shaver. Mr. Cody is

affliction resembling fits.
It is reported that a new boiler
hoister and pump have been or
dered to take the place of the

become stronger as depth is at

sufficient to keep out the water.
- Milas Simpson, one of our old
est citizens, suffered a stroke of
paralysis last week. He is about
75 years of age. One whole side
is afflicted and he is not able to
take any liourishmens except a
little milk or soup. No hope is
entertained for his recovery. Mr.
Milas was a familiar figure-on our
streets, known as the lknife

Piobability of acquittal was
freely predicted after Judge Fre
mont Wood read his charge, which
jwjas regarded as strongly favoriDg
the defense in its interpretation
of the laws of conspiracy, circum
stantial evidence and the corrob
oration of a confessed accomplice.
It was also freely predicted that,
in the event of Haywood's ac
quittal, the State would abandon
the prosecution of his associates,
Charles H. Moyer, president of
jihe Federation,- and George A.
Pettibone, of Denver. Statements
from counsel and from Governor
Gooding, isssued today, dispel
this view of the situation.
The trial had been in progress
for several months. Haywood
and others were charged with
o - -
having been the directors of a
campaign which resulted in a
number of murders, and no doubt
they are guilty, but the evidence
was insufficient to convict. Har

against the defendants, confessed
to so many crimes that his evi

SUNDAY SCHOOL CONVENTION "HELD.
Big Time it St. Luke's Ctiarcti, Providence
, Township. . Last Thursday.
The; annual meeting of Provi
dence Township' Sunday School
Convention was held' in St. Luke's
Reformed church, Thursday, Au
gust 1, 1907-; from 10:80 a. m., to
4Y8Q p. m.
he convention veas called to
order by: President H. C. Peeler.
In the absence - of. the secretary,
P. D. Brown, the president asked
B. L. Phillips to serve as secretary
pro tern. After an appropriate
opening the convention began at
once with the business of the
meeting. It accepted as correct
the minutes of last meeting and
elected the following officers for
the ensuing year: Rev. N. D.
Bodie, president; H. C. Peeler,
vice-president; B. L. Phillips,
secretary and treasurer.
After the querry box was placed
the discussion of topic (1) began
A. L. Kluttz introduced the topic,
which reads like this, "The Bene
fits of a Well-studied Sunday
School Lesson," Mr. Kluttz
spoke well and among other things
he said that there were practically
no benefits to the lesson unless it
was well-studied and as a means
towards getting well -studied les
sons he suggested plenty of "Les
He was followed by H. C. Peel
er, who showed that he had stud
ied dilligeutly the international
lessons since January 1, 1907, by
making a brief review of the les
sons studied since that time, and
by application showing how the
benefits fitted in.
Rev. N. D. Bodie then took up
the subject, and in a very inter
esting manner, with plain lessons
from every day school life, showed
how a lesson could not be used at
all uutil it was well-learned, and
how continual practice of well
studied Sunday school lessons
would develop nd train the
Rev. R. L. Brown, as a volun
teer, hurriedly outlined several
benefits derived from well-studied
Sunday school lessons, one among
which was the knowledge a famil
iarity with the Bible.
Topic (2.) "The Sunday School
as a factor in Mission Work."
was next introduced. Dr. J. M.
L. Lyerly. was the only man to re
spond to his name on this import
ant subject. He spoke of what a
great mission that department 61
the Sunday school had in large
cities, and so on down to the
schools in the rural districts. He
advocated a larger effort along
this line. The morning session
came to a close with a song and
an offering which amounted to
$1.89. This time was heartily
welcomed by the patient listeners.
for the long morning session had
become somewhat tedious to them.
The sound of the bell in the
tower, after an hour's rest, called
the convention back into the
house. A timely selection by the
choir at this time assisted much
in getting the people in and ar
ranged, S3 that trw convention at
once went on with its proceedure.
Four schools answered to the
roll call and read reports. These
were S. Luke's, Christiana, Prov
idence and St. Peter's, St. Luke's
leads with an average attendance
of 81, Christiana follows with
an average of 56, -Providence
47 and St. Peter's 43. Three
schools: Bethel, Trading Ford and
Union were not represented in the
convention, reasons unknown.
Before topic (3) was begun Rev.
W. W. Row.e called the attention
of the convention to the specially
prepared report blanks furnished
by the State. The secretary was
instructed to trausfer the reports
to blanks of that kind.
Topic (3.) "How Best to De
velop Reverence in the Sunday
School." This topic was excep
tionally well discussed by Dr.
Trexler and Rev. C. B. Heller.
Dr. Trexler said that Protestauts
could wfcll take a lesson in rever
ence from the Catholics, who hold
in supreme reverence their place s
Rev. C. B. Heller made a
appearance and gave some valu
able suggestions as to deportment
in the church of God. This was
the best handled topic of the day.
Topic (4.) "How to make the
Sabbath Delightful." This topic
was interestingly discussed by
short speeehes from Messrs. Ar
thur Thomas, John C. Peeler and
Revs. W. W. Rowe and R; L,
Brown. ' -
In the .querry box was found
kthis question, "What is the Ob
ject of the Sunday School?" Dr.
Lyerly answered itr very appro
priately in these worda.v "The)b-
jeot of the Sunday school 1 is to
serve the Church." -
It was first decided that the
convention siiould meet at Bethel
next year, but an investigation
proved that Christiana came next
in order, so the place of meeting
was changed from Bethel to
The First Thursday in August
of each vear was chosen as the
time for the convention to meet
This time was set by a standing
The convention elected the fol
