According to previous arrangements i spent a sunday recently in one of the River towns along the Ohio the thriving Little City of Bellaire. Those who live in the clean Little villages of the Interior can hardly imagine the condition physically morally and spiritually of the town along the Ohio River. The Saloon Trade seems to Boss the political Side of life to such a degree that a Large part of the population Are living slaves to its Iron Rule. You would conclude that the sunday school work was also Iii a poor condition. In general this is the Case. This prepared for me a Complete yet an agreeable Surprise. I found Here in the first methodist episcopal Church of Bellaire one of the Best sunday schools in Ohio. A graded school often has it been heard that if you Grade a sunday school you will cause one third of them to leave and two thirds of the remainder will be offended Over the affair. Of course there is Little foundation for this statement and now As for me the foundation is All knocked out from that statement by the perfect Harmony that resulted from the Complete re classification of this Large school of Over 400 members. Every class except Tho primary was torn to pieces and perfect peace has reigned every Day since the new classes were formed. On april 12 the offering was Given to missionary work. There were 345 in attendance. The offering was $242.50. Besides this one offering each month is Given to missionary work. This averages More than $12 per month. Other offerings will come in so that they Are assured of at least $400 for missionary work just from one sunday school. Always has plenty of Money for the work at Home. Their superintendent or. L. G Battelle is a very Busy Young business Man very modest with a heart full of Faith and love for the sunday school work. The Junior league members 150 and others were invited so that the c ass which it was Ray great Delight to teach numbered nearly 200. I believe it was the happiest Day i have Ever spent in my life. These consecrated Young people have won a permanent distinction As a part of the Church life of Bellaire. Three girls furnished an orchestra to accompany the singing. If Good work can be done under such difficult circumstances the workers in Defiance county ought to March right on to perfection. May you soon be at the top of the Hill of Success. Lovingly yours e.
