Children's Column: [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 19 November 1910
: Children's Column : Theie was once a very vain boy called "Phaeton." He lived in those eat ly clays when the wot Ul was young and tor his father he had no otlici personage than the God of the Sun Of com se, this was enough to make any-body a little proud, but ceitaiidy not as vain ns Phaeton became. The Goddess of Ucarty honoied him willi her altuition too giving him one &lt; I her temples to take care of, and this quite spoilt the youth and made him so overbearing and conceited that he became quite a nuisance. Even his friends almost ceased caring for him and lots of people disliked him veiy much indeed. At last one boy who couldn't bear to see his haughty overbearing manner, determined to try and check him. So he told Phaeton that he had really nothing to be proud of at all.

At the aft moon service the preacher drew some very interesting lebsons from a selection of watches. Pastor Fisher distributed the prize*, which were a very nice selection of books. At the Evening service the text was chosen fi mn Matthew xviii, 2. ; "And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the nvdst." The preacher drew attention to the following points. When Jesus set the child in the midst, lie set him in the place of peri I, and also in the place of protection. To-day our polititiotis recognise the child is in the central position, as the contro- versies over Educational matters prove. The Roman Catholic chinch recognises thisby the iffor s it puts forth to instruct the children and by the extention of its own schoo...
