Excerpt from The Blackboard in Sunday-School

"Another boy criminal!" The man of large business interests and small heart reads beneath that heading in his morning paper the sad details of the crime. The defaulter had a good home, he had been well educated in the public schools, his father had spared neither effort nor money to start his son in life under the most favorable circumstances. The boy had been an attendant of Sunday-school from infancy, almost, and yet, and yet - The business man turns to his business friend, "There's another sample of your Sunday-school boy; the churches are a failure." We may question this man's logic, may doubt his honesty in affirming that this boy is a sample, but we cannot ignore that attitude of mind toward the Sunday-school, nor escape the inference that the man of the world expects great results from Sunday-school teaching. He expects Sunday-school pupils to become clean, reliable, and incorruptible men, and he may admit that a genuine religious conviction is the only guarantee of righteous character.
