With the third of a series of meetings that packed the Forum each night, the annual state Sunday school convention closed last night and delegates and visitors left Wichita on every Outgoing train. The visit of the 2,500 Sunday school workers was an epoch in the city's his. tory. It was one of the biggest events of its kind ever held in the southwest and probably the biggest ever held in Kansas. It is estimated that $15,000 was left in Wichita by the different delegations, and this sum was scattered among busi-6 ness men and residents.

For three days citizens were confronted with the power of Sunday school union at every turn. Delegates wearing badges were to be found in all sections of Wichita and they appeared to enjoy their visit immensely. It developed yesterday that Wichita has a good chance to land the convention next year. The state Sunday school offices will remain at Abilene until the fiftieth anniversary of the Kansas State Sunday School association is celebrated in 1915 in the city of Topeka. Alexander seemed to be the center of attraction and he must have been a great man for he kept the ten commandments and everything else he could get his hands on.

There's only one thing more religious in the world than a girl, and thats a boy. Alexander said he well remembered the first licking he got. It was for administering the sacrement to his young congregation when he was a small boy. One boy said he went to sleep when the preather preached because the preacher was so deep; another boy said, I know your preacher, he's not deep, he's muddythat's all. When a boy of 15 excepts Christ, it means a life for Christ; when a man of 80 excepts Christ, it means a soul saved, for his life has been mostly lived out and some of if he wishes he could live over.
