SUNDAY SCHOOL UNION. BARRY AND CADOXTON BRANCH. The annual public meeting of the above Union was held in the Wesleyan Chapel, Holton-road, on Thursday, the Rev W. D. Lee Cann in the chair. A large number of Sunday School workers were present, the feature of the evening being an address by Alderman Meggitt on The Sunday Schools of America." During his recent trip to the sister land Alderman Meggitt said he visited several Sunday Schools with no less surprise than pleasure. There was so much novelty; so many sign* of progress; an utter absence of conservatism. The school buildings—there is nothing like them in this country-are spacious and well lighted. The classes are not huddled together in incommodious comers of the building, but the children sit on chairs (benches are un- known) in a semi-circle round tbt-ir totteb. Each class being thus under eaeier control, the orderly and systematic working of the school i- lomething to be envied. The teachers include people from all grades of life-the professor working side-by-side with the humblest artizan. Pictures and diagrams illustrating the lesson are plentiful, and help greatly to increase the interest. The spirit of emulation among the scholars is strong; it is fostered by the award- ing of badges of honour for regular attendance, and special merit marks for diligence and devotion to duty; in short, no expense in esteemed too great, and no method is left untried which will help to make the Sunday School what it should be,—a power under Heaven's direction to fit the child for hie eternal destiny. America has far out-stripped us in the race for improvement; yet we must not forget that success is not achieved by mere material advancement, but by the over- powering force of love. This is the teacher's greatest weapon, the one essential to success. Mr Meggitt was listened to with the greatest interest, and received the hearty thanks of the meeting. The proceedings were followed by an enjoyable coffee sapper.
