ways that are used to cultivate the spirit
of giving and to stimulate the splrll of

help to lead the child Into a fuller' un

. At the Borne convention all kinds of
Sunday school literature and music were
shown. There were no less than s-ixteen
different classes of exhibits. One of the
mtst interesting of all the exhibits, wan
a little "do withoutit" bus, intended for
the pocket of man, woman or child. Il

The development of the world Sitnday
school is a remarkable story of religious
activity. First an organization of a few
schools, then state-wide, then national, then
Ii'Urnallonal, and then world-wide, until
now thirty-seven countries and fifty-three
denominations are united by the great tie
of common Bible study. The movement
toward this world-wide co-operation has
proved successful, ut cause of the desire
tor a definite program of study, in which
all cuuld unite. The American Sunday
School I'niun was the first Important ex
pression of the larger desire for co-oper-atlon.
The New York Sunday School L'nlou
first expressed the desire for nations co
operation in 1P20. The American union lias
been one of the greatest of all the forces
at work for the upbuilding of the Sunday
aehuol in the I'nited Slates. The first
national Sunday school convention was
held lu New York in 1832. although there
had been severil interstate conventions be
fore that time.
In 1S72 the ii:itloiu.l convention broadened
into an iiiK-rnutlonal meeting, with Canada
participating, and here was begun I lie
work of preparing the world's Bible studv
In the shape of the International Sunday
school lessons.' The convention which
adopted Ibe International hs-on idea was
In-Ill at Indianapolis, and it is said that
much feeling entered Into the debate on
The first international lessons wire pre
pared by a committee of twelve, five niln
islcis and f.vo laymen from the fulled'
States, and one minister and one layman
from Canada. It was to formulate a
seven-year Bible study course. Since then

The lessons which are to be studied this
year were not produced in haste. ICven
now, while the Sunday school scholar Is
studying the first lesson for 1910. those
for 1912 are being prepared, and th ise for
subsequent years arc being mapped out
by the great committees upon whose
shoulders fall the" duty of guiding the
world's thought in nibb? study. Kven as
far buck us 1U7, at the meeting of the
British and American sections of the In
ternational committee, it was decided that
the British committee should prepue a
cycle of lessons from l'.U2 lo 1!17, with the
11(12 lessons worked out In detail, and the
ones from lflui to 1417. inclusive, in broad
outline. The course for the 1910 lessons
was approved before that date, and the
American committee was asked to work
out the details of the 1911 lessons
The 1907 conference of the British and
American sections of international lesson
writers will result in the lessens of the
next few years being graded. On both
sides of the Atlantic It was found that
there was a demand for graded lessons,
ond resolutions were adopted looking to
that end, but it is not probable that these
will be introduced before 1912. The Ameri
can seetlon is elected by the International
association, and consists of fifteen mem
bers, who hold their position for six years,
or for one of the cycles of Sunday school
Bible study. Time of them are from
Canada and twelve fi'om the United States.
Twelya are ministers and three are lay
men, and they ure proportionately divided
among the leading Protestant churches
whicli use the International lessons.
The Bible must be covert d in six years,
with 2)8 lessons. There must be a tem
perance lesson every quarter and a num
ber of other special lessons. After the
committee has gone over the lessons for a
given year they are sent to the publishers
and lesson writers of the world, who arc
asktd for suggestions and criticisms look
ing to a revision. When Hie committed
meets the ensuing year tin be suggHstitms
and criticisms are examined curefu.ly. in
the preparation of the liiisons for 19W
there were about 12G sus.'Ustioiis, and they
ri'Miltid in the change or modification of
thirty-one themes. thirty-three golden
texts, tenty-two lesson assignments, nine
committal versts, and the substitution -of
six hseons for six that were eliminated.
The home department of Sunday school
work is of American origin, the creation
of Lr. W. A. Duncan of New York atate,
who established It in ISM. As only 'M per
cent of church members attend the regu

of Sunday school work has grown with

ex-consul had grown eloijU'-nt over the
misdeeds of Central American dictators.
Ills friend had mourned .the shooting of
Cannon and jUroce.
"I never knew those boys," said the ex
consul. "They seem to have been on the

game they were up against. Central
America is full of soldlers'of fortune, and
tlio natives have no sort of use for them.
Walker, the biggest filibuster of all, is

"I've come in contact with scores of
them. They'd beg me to save their skins
w hen they'd made the country too hot to
hold them. Shiftless and uninteresting
vagabonds they were with the exception
of three, who were geniuses."
"That so?" queried his friend, who had

It was not many years before the Idea of
paid teachers was eliminated, and with

It was long after the is ginning of the

was glad to get a Job on tho railroad as a
fireman. In lime ho became an engineer.
"But Lee wanted to see the world. He
grew tired of his Job und quit in the most
sensational way ever heard of on a Ten
nessee railroad. lie threw Hie throttle of
Ills engine wide open one fine day and let
her go full speed ahead. He tore past
stations and through towns for fifty milts
before he decided to stop. Then he Jumped
out of his cab and disappeared. I'll bs
Jiggered if I can tell you how he didn't
wreck the train on some open switch.
"The next place I heard of Lee Christ
mas was in Honduras. He drifted into
my office one day, the same reckless,
laughing devil lie had always been. Bui
he wasn't a railroad engineer then, not
by a lung shot. He was me power behind
the throne in the little republic.
"I pan see him now as In- t-at 011 a corner
of my desk and told me thp story. He'd
a cigarette hanging out of one corner
of his mouth like a Central American
and his face was tanned brown, but there
was the old Tennessee drawl in his voice.
"He'd had u rou:,'h lime of it at first,
fought on the losing side of six revolutions
and been wounded more than once. Bui
he'd attached himself to a winning candi
date at last and had come out at the top
of tho heap as Ucneral Leo Christmas,
chief military adviser to the president and
real ruler of tho country
Bill Moore's Nerve.
"The second adventurer 1 have in mind
Is Admiral Bill Moore of Salvador. During
the Boer war he wus in the Hritlhh navy
and carries a royal inedul for life saving
and two others for distinguished service.
"Promotion under his own flag seemed
to be a long distance ahead, and ut the
close of the war Bill quit and went to
Salvador. Theie he pulitd off the biei
! bluff 1 have ever heard of. 1 fussed in
a natty sun of white duck, with gold
braid on the shoulders, he made an early
afternoon call on the president.
" 'Belli' as 'ow you 'ave a revolution

"There wasn't a soul in the piesiiU-nt's

placed in charge of the navy of Salvador,
which comprised three converted tramp

sailors, and placing himself at their bead,

most remarkable man of the three, In my
opinion. 1 was In the Mexlian state of
Sonora, when he turned up there about
fifteen years ago. He might have dropped
from the sky for all that any one knew
"He spoke very little Spaui.sh and when
asked his name gave a barbarous com
bination of sounds that no Mexican could
be expected to pronounce. The gossip i f
the cantlnas decided that he' was a Rus
sian. For some reason every foreigner In
Mexico, who Is not American nor yet a
Spaniard nor a Frenchman is put down ua
a Russian. Kosterlitzky is sore about the
mistake to this very day, for I don't need
to tell you that a Pole would much rath -r
be called a thief or a murderer than a
"He lost notinic in enlisting In the
loful rur.iles, c. force not unlike ihe French
Foreign Legion. It numbers In its ranks
men -from the four corners of tlin earth.
A recruh is asked no questions. His past
is his own affair.
"But Kosterlitzky was not an ordinary
swashbuckler. He showed such courage
and resourcefulness in tho first campaign
against the Yaqul Indians that he was at
once Jumped to the rank of captain. Five
ytars later he was chief of the rurales
"He was then able to give his talents
full play. Before Ills day the rurales were
brave but Inefficient, a lax body of adven
turers who did not know what the word
discipline meant. He drilled them and
licked them into shape, until they became
the most valuable fighting force in Mex
ico. It is alleged that he made a special
bid for the bad men ttf Texas and Arizona
as recruits. He wanted gun fighters who
would be afraid of neither Gor nor man.
Whatever they might have done across the
line, he promised them protection If they
would enlist under him.
"Whether true or not, this tory gave
his name a blnlster meaning along t!,e
frontier. It became a proverb among the
worst element. 'Dofwhat you please, then
Join Kosterlitzky. He won't give you
Kosterlltskr's Pleasant War.
"'Kosterlitzky sprang Into prominence at
the time of the riots at Cananea several
years ago. The Mexican laborers at 'he
big copper camp struck for higher wages.
Property was destroyed and tin- lives of
Americans were menaced.
"The rurales were at the other end of
Sonora. and the urgent needs of the caso
caused the authorities to appeal to the
governor of Arizona for asalstance. He
responded by sending a detachment of the
