Receives Judgement for $350
The case of Raymond Scott, a boy
of about fourteen, who was run over
by a Ford touring car, in front of the
Bon Ton Bakery a year ago, April
2nd, was tried in the Franklin County
District court at Bloomington, last
week. Judgment was received for
$350 and costs. Although tho doctors,
who testified in the case, found in
juries that may bo permanent, the
jury composed mostly of farmers
could not see any great amount of in
jury to the young man. Attorney E.
G. Caldwell was attorney for tho
It will be remembered that tho boy
was riding a wheel and had no know
ledge of the fact that tho car was
bearing down upon him, as its driver
turned around in the center of the
block instead of making the turn at
the corner, as specified in city traffic
ordinances. The boy was thrown from
the wheel, falling on the pavement
and two of tho wheels of the car pass
ing over his body. That ho escaped
death is nothing 3hort of a miracle.
This should be a warning to car own
ers and drivers.
On I'ltursday afternoon, at the M.
E. church, assembled the twenty-ninth
Annual Convention of the Webster
Cottnt.v Sunday School Association, '
Miss Margaret Ellen Brown, General
Sccrc .try of the Association, and the
busiru manager, Mr. W. (H. Kim
berlj had arrived and with the Presi
dent, A. J. Fry, and the Convention
Chortater, N. B. Bush, present, the
active woik began.
Tin- counsel was inspired by the
spiiit of chirstian union and effort
to ovpiess fellowship and bring tho
Sttndaj School into united service, to'
secutc a larger combined influence in
all mutters affecting the moral and
social condition of the people. It
considered the differences that divide
as nothing in comparison to the many
matters that unite. After the open
ing song service, tho dcvotionals wore
led by Rev. Bccbc, in tho absence of
Ke. Hagcman of Cowles. Gicctings
were extended by President Fry, af
ter the delegates were apportioned
out to the many hospitable homes of
I Red Cloud, by the reception commit
Mis. Ruth Eshclman gave a splen
did talk on "The Teacher That Teach
es," kShc described the ideal toward
which all Sunday School teachers wore
to work, and proved to be a great in
spiration for the workers.
Many of the numbers scheduled
wcro not given as the delegates had
not all arrived. Their subjects were J
taken as a, general discusion bcfoie
the convention. -
W. II. Kimberly gave many valuable
suggestions as to tho new ways and
methods employed today, in his dis- J
course on "The Stuir That Is Taught
In Tho Sunday School.' In this recon
sttuction period when we must (more
than ever before be doers of tho Word
and not hearers only) realize that
Sunday School teachings must be very
fotccful to meet tho needs of our
joung people. We arc becoming more
aw akc to the fact that a great wave '
of unbelief is sweping over Chris-,
Mrs. Fay of Blue Hill, was unable
to do her part in the program as
was Nellie Christy of Guide Rock.
Their subjects were taken as a round
table for all.
Every day at four o'clock Miss
Bvown held the "story hour" for the '
school children. Such helpful little
stories encourages tho children.
Those, who in childhood, learn the
story of the Bible are indeed for
tunate. "Dacid and Goliath" is more
fascinating the "Jack the Giant Kill
er." The Bible is a veritable "Arab
ian Nights" of entertainment when
you become familiar with it.
During the evenings it seemed that
more interest! was shown and more
people present to respond to tho pro
gram. Tho discourse on "Tho Unfolding
Life," by Miss Brown, was as inter
esting as all tho other addresses
tlnoughout tho entire Convention.
The Convention Chorister deserves
much praiso for his work during tho
convention as well as in securing
such a splendid choir.
"Missionary Instruction In The Sun
day School," was another fine sub
ject for discusion and considerable
time was devoted to it.
"Preparation and Presentation Of
The Lesson Story" was a problem
discussed by all. Miss Brown en
dorsed tho grade lesson plan and sug
gested that work in tho primary do
