THE CHILDREN OF THE

CHURCH A recent “ Knoll Paper" on “ The Children of the Church " has brought us the following response. We are glad to receive it and to give it to our readers, because it

furnishes a concrete illustration of one way • in which the Church can fulfill its unfulfilled duty of ministering to its children.

As the welfare of children, materially and spiritually, has always been of interest to me, your “Knoll Paper" on " The Child dren of the Church," in the issue of The Outlook for January 16, struck a sympathetic chord, and I agree with you that as a general rule the children are not given the consideration due them in the average church. However, there is an exception to this rule in our little city of Glens Falls, Christ Church (Methodist Episcopal), whose pastor is the Rev. Charles V. Judkins. In adılition to our Bible school [held every Sunday afternoon), Dr. Judkins holds two special church services for the children each week: junior church at 6:30 Sunday evenings for young people from the ages of twelve to twenty, and child's church for the little ones from eight to twelve, which meets each Thursday afternoon at 4:15. At each of these services there is preached a specially prepared sermon. Many young people outside of Christ Church take advantage of the junior church, which proves its value and shows that it is appreciated.

As to our Bible school, we have a very well-equipped building for the purpose, with separate class-rooms for each class of the senior and intermediate departments, these rooms being provided with tables and chairs; and forty minutes is given to the study of the lesson. We also have a primary department and a kindergarten, which latter is in charge of a regularly trained kindergarten teacher. We have a graded school governed by a grading commission, anal e are using the Constructive Bible Studies as outlined by the University of Chicago Press. Great care is taken by the grading commission in the selection of teachers, with the result that we have an efficient boily of men and women for the work. One of the rules provides men teachers for the boys and women for the girls.

Dr. Judkins not only realizes the need of special church services for the children, but also feels the need of a better knowlelge of the Bible among the adults; and, with that end in view, he has a men's class and a women's class for the modern critical constructive study of the Bible, on different evenings of each week. The attendance at the men's classes averages ninety and at the women's over a hundred. We are peculiarly blessed in having for our clergymnan a man with a vision.

WOMAN SUFFRAGE AND THE

BOSTON ELECTION On the question of women voting as to school committees, no reform was gained in Boston, despite the fact that most of the reform or good government nominees were electedlmen only voting for these. Taking this into account with the New York suffrage and Tammany victory, would not the natural inference be that the question be left to single States at least, if not to the women themselves?

BY THE WAY

[blocks in formation]

A letter from an American soldier in France speaks appreciatively of the good things received at Christmas from the home folks : “ One fellow got four mince pies ; others fruit cake, etc. I myself have received two packages now, one with cigarettes, candy, socks, jam, handkerchiefs, and lots of things a sight for sore eyes over here. To-day I got a can of candy-fudge in it, real nut fudge. That was a good treat, too. The night before Christmas I went down by the river and slept in a bed for the first time since August. We built a fire in the fireplace and toasted crackers, ate nuts, dates, candy, etc. Christmas Day they gave us a fine dinner at the mess. ... I am not making any special plans, but just looking for the chance to get back to that little family, which has increased by one since my departure-another little girl. ... We think if we could get enough of the U. S. boys over here it would not take long to end this war.”

How do you pronounce cantonment? Some people call it can-tonment, some canton-ment, and some can-toon-ment. The first is preferred by the Century Dictionary, the second by the Oxford English Dictionary, and the third by the Standard Dictionary. The last-named authority, how. ever, has an advisory committee of eminent orthoepists, to whom words of disputed pronunciation are submitted, and a large majority of these have voted in favor of can-ton-ment. Can-toon-ment is said to be the favorite pronunciation in India. An old spelling of the word is “cantoonment.”

Cleanliness is near to self-veneration as well as to godliness. A trained nurse tells in a recent book an incident illustrative of this fact. A neglected boy of nineteen had met with an accident and come to the hospital. The nurse had thoroughly washed and combed his hair and subjected hands and nails to cleansing and manicuring to which they were entire strangers. The box was delighted. He felt his hair and looked at his hands a hundred times a day. When some friends came in to see him, he er. claimed, like a child with a new toy, “Look at me hair! Look at me hands! Ain't it great!”

The English Government, according to the “ Railway Age," has granted another war bonus to railway workers—the fifth since the beginning of the war. The new bonus amounts to six shillings a week, bringing the total increase since February, 1915, to twenty-one shillings a week (about $5.25).

“ James Murray, a seaman on Commodore Perry's flagship on the voyage that opened Japan to the world, died yesterday at his home in Brooklyn.” So passed away the fourth “last survivor ” of the Perry expedition who has come to the attention of this department since the publication in The Outlook of January 2 of the portrait of William II, Hardy, who at the time was supposed to be the only surviving member of the famous expedition. That trip to Japan seems to have had a remarkable influence in conferring longevity upon the fortunate cailors who accompanied Commodore Perry.

Tolstoy and Turgenev, famous Russian novelists, were contemporaries and friends. but on one occasion they had a serious fulling out. As gathered from a recent biog. raphy, this is the story of their quarrel:

This announcement is published by The Outlook to help the Government collect these taxesand thus aid in winning the war.

Winter Sports

Each season adds many to the list of winter sports enthusiasts. For lovers of skiing, snow-shoeing, tobogganing, skating, and the like, the list of resorts to choose from, where these sports may be found, grows yearly and now includes Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado; Yosemite National Park in California ; Mount Hood in Oregon; and resorts in New England, Pennsylvania, and Canada. We shall be glad to send Outlook readers information about these resorts without charge.

By the Way (Continued) The two famous novelists met at a friend's house. Turgenev spoke enthusiastically of his young daughter's new English governess, mentioning that she required the child to mend old, ragged clothes to give to the poor. " Do you consider that good ?" demanded Tolstoy. “I certainly do," replied Turgenev; “it makes the charity worker realize every-day needs.” “ And I think that a welldressed girl with filthy, malodorous rags in her hands is acting an insincere farce," commented Tolstoy. “I ask you not to say that,” exclaimed Turgenev, hotly. “ Why should I not say what I am convinced is true ?” retorted Tolstoy. “If you say that again I will box your ears!” Turgenev cried, white with rage, and rushed from the room. A duel was narrowly averted. Afterwards these famous men became reconciled, and on his death-bed Turgenev wrote an affecting note to Tolstoy, addressing him as "the great writer of our Russian land.”

A Cleveland man, according to the “ Plain Dealer," tried to name his children so that they should not have nicknames. The eldest was named William, the next Willard, and then came Wilbert, Wilfred, and Wilmont. “Now everybody will have to speak the full names of each of these boys in order to distinguish them,” said the ingenious father. “They are all big boys now,” concludes the “ Plain Dealer," " and they are respectively known as Billy, Skinny, Butch, Chuck, and Kid.”

A provincial British paper prints the following tribute to the activity of Government clerks in these times, with an added sarcasm as to their supposed idleness in former days :

In a stroll through town by night one may see in certain streets many men doing clerical work behind blindless windows. They are the overtimers of the Government departments, some of which have extended to extra houses. The spectacle may satisfy the persons who used to complain that despite all the schemes for relieving the unemployed nothing seemed to be done for young men in Government offices.

George Borrow, author of the well-known book " The Bible in Spain," which was the result of his work as a colporter for an English Bible Society, was in his youth a connoisseur in pugilistic lore and in the annals of crime. A set of books sold at auction in New York recently, “Celebrated Trials and Remarkable Cases of Criminal Jurisprudence,” was his first work and was compiled by him when trying to make his way in London as a young writer. Borrow was industrious; he got together the entire six volumes of this work, consisting of 3,600 pages, and put it through the press, in less than a year.

Under the heading “ The Modern Vil. lage Blacksmith” the New York “Sun” publishes a parody that brings Longfellow up to date. The first two stanzas read :

Under a spreading canopy

The Village “Shoffy" stands.
The “Shoff" a mighty man is he,

With large and itching hands,
And his plethoric pocketbook

Is wrapped with rubber bands.
His hair is short, and black, and slick.

His clothes are spic and span.
In his garage are satellites

Who graft whate'er they can,
But little is there left when he

Gets through with any man.
