By D. W. SIMS,
General Superintendent, North Caro
lina Sunday School Association
In Gloucester, England, in 1780,
Robert ilai/.es gathered wgath r r
few ragged, dirty children, who were
without any educational advantages,
and started a Sunday school. The
purpose of this Sunday school was to
give the rudiments of education such
;.s reading and writing, and to teach
the catechism. Little did Robert
Kaikes think that from that small be
gin->’ng would come the Sunday school
work of today—which has encircled
tiie globe, and —which has become one j
of the mightiest forces in the world j
r ~f Christianity. The
present-day Sunday school, with its
various activities, reaches into praeti- *
rally every country in the world. In- j
formation recently sent out from the [
office of the World’s Sunday School j
Association, 210 Metropolitan Tower, j
New York, gives the following typi- j
cal cases of Sunday school activities: j
Work among children who are re
lated to the various Christian schools j
in North Africa has been greatly
helped by the publication of a song
book in Arabic. This w ill be used by j
all Sunday schools in that area. The
request for such a book was made by (
the workers in Algiers and vicinity,
and bool: was made possible by a spe
cial gift of money through the
W rld’s" Sunday School Association.
’< po book h: s 237 .pages and the in
dex, which is in French and Arabic, I
indicates a range of titles such as!
W r- hip, God. Jesus Christ, The Holy
Spirit, ihe Holy Scriptures, the
Church, Salvation, Repentance, Par

P. nyer, Faith, Ileavefl, Rev. Percy
Smith, D. n„ is editor of the book,
an 1 -with him were associated both
Jnis nonaries and native workers. The
book was printed in Algiers.
There are more than 5,000 in the
Sunday sch • ■>!:■ in Java. Though most
of the pupils are Moslems they show
e•• at appreciation of the subjects
taught in the Sunday schools. The
value of th«' Sundry school is fully
’••■cognized in the matter of training
leaders for the Javanese Church. Spe
cial attention is being given to the
preparation of an outline of Sunday
school lessons which will be suited to
the needs of those in Java. In addition
to the work for :he Javanese children,
there are Sunday schools for Dutch
children, and also for those who speak
the Malay langauge. Through the
Surplus Material Department of the
World’s Sunday School Association,
many Bible lessons pictures and large
Bible lesson picture-rolls have been
sent to Java, but the supply never
equals the demand. There are 20,000,-
OCO Java-speaking natives.
The secretary of the Ceylon Sunday
School Association, J. Vincent Men

a Local Option Poll in his district and
that the last toddy shops there have
been voted out so that the district is
now dry. Several liquor shops have
closed in neighboring districts
and the hope is expressed that soon
Ceylon will be free from the baneful
influence of liquor. Their object is

one in Hukkiado and one in Sendai.
The attendance in other plains was
large and the people were very en
thusiastic. At Saporo, the mayor,
president of the university, principal
of the high school, with nearly 70
educators in the public schools, were
present at the opening session. At
Sendai the governor and mayor greet
ed the convention.
Some months ago the Japan Nat
ional Sunday School Association was
given permission to send teachers to
the public schools in the city of To
twice each month to teach the
Bible to groups of children. The j
teachings and nuances for this work
were of course furnished by the
Sunday School Association.
In connection with the National
Sunday School Convention of France
which *was recently held in Paris,
about 4,000 Sunday school people met
for a rally. A splendid program had
been arranged and great enthusiasm
prevailed. Three pageants were giv
en, representing the Landing of the
Huguenots in America in 1624, the
Defeat of King Alcohol, and Ezra’s!
Bible School. A federal Senator pre
sided at one of the sessions of "Pro
testant Week,” which was especially
in interest of the Sunday School.

Daring Middle Ages
Cities of southern Sweden were
among the greatest commercial cen
ters of the civilized world during the
Middle ages. St'x-kholm and Lund
ranked with London and Paris, says
the Family Herald. They absorbed
the commerce of the northern seas
and were the admiration of thousands
of travelers and merchants who passed
through them and trafficked with them.
Later Sweden was the great military
power of northern Europe.
The ambassadors of the Swedish
king's were received with the utmost
deference in every court. Her sol
diers won great battles and ended
mighty wars. The England of Crom
well and Ciicrles 11 was unimportant
and isolated in comparison with this
northern kingdom, which could pour
forth armies of gigantic blond warriors
headed by brave and astute generals
Sweden is today a peaceful kingdom.
Even the secession of Norway was
accomplished without bloodshed. Den
mark once domineered and tyrannized
over both kingdoms.
