County Sunday School
The county Sunday School missionary work was inaugurated several years ago and Mr. Lanphear was the first superintendent. He sewed good seed and labored in all kinds of weather to organize schools throughout the county. He was succeeded by Mr. Speers who soon turned the place over to Mr. Canham who is doing a good work. He is a good singer, a faithful organizer and a sincere christian.
