EXERCISES IN THE SUNDAY SCHOOL.
The anniversary exercises began on Sabbath morning,
October ioth, 1915, with a service appropriate to the
occasion, at the regular Sunday School hour, 9.45 o'clock
in the Lecture Room. A large number of visitors was
present and among those attending were three former
pastors, the Rev. Robert Christie, D.D.; the Rev. George
P. Wilson, D.D.; and the Rev. WV. S. Fulton, D.D.,
each of whom took some part in the exercises. The
superintendent of the Sunday School, Mr. J. E. Bassett,
presided. After a short devotional service, papers were
read on the work in connection with the Sunday School
of Mr. Andrew Gilmore, Mr. J. R. Sharpe, Mrs. H. M.
Skillman and Miss Ella Williams.
Before the papers on the work of Mr. Sharpe and Miss
Williams could be secured for publication they were
destroyed, and it has been impossible to have them repro-
duced. It is to be regretted that a full account of the
labors of these two splendid workers cannot be given here.
For thirty-six years Mr. Sharpe worked in the school, and
contributed his energies to its upbuilding and welfare.
No less devoted was Miss Ella Williams, whose un-
timely death removed one upon whom the Church and
the school had learned to depend.
The sketch of Mr. Gilmore's association with the
school was prepared by Miss Lizzie Lyle, and was
read by the Rev. George P. Wilson.
