Text Appearing Before Image:
g of the Board in June, 1909, Rev. J. H.Milholland was elected recording secretary of the boardand Rev. J. M. Wyckoff, corresponding secretary and treas-urer, and while the Centennial Anniversary of our churchwas approaching, the board felt it their duty as well as aprivilege to make a special effort to increase the revenueof the board. Hence, the corresponding secretary wasordered to have circulars enough to supply the church atlarge, which was done. This work had not only an educa-tional feature about it, but brought in a goodly sum com-pared with what the expense was. In conclusion, we predict in the next one hundred yearsa more wonderful growth ior the Cumberland PresbyterianChurch than it has had in the past one hundred years. While we have been robbed of our property in manystates by the Northern Presbyterian Church, we are assuredthere are not enough devils in hell or Northern Presbyter-ians out of that place, who will ever be able to wrest ourdoctrine from us and our children.

KEV. THOS. ASHBURNKNOXyiLLE, TENN. HISTORY OF SUNDAY SCHOOLS AND YOUNG PEOPLES WORK OF THE CUMBERLAND PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH FOR THE FIRST CENTURY OF HER HISTORY. REV. THOMAS ASHBURN. Your committee have derived much pleasure and profitfrom their effort in gathering the material for this paper. In studying the history of any branch of our denomina-tional work, we are confronted with the fact that for thefirst half century of our existence as a church, we didbut little toward any organized effort. Camp meetings and various forms of revivals were notonly very prominent in the work of our church in her earlyhistory, but they constituted nearly the entire work of ourchurch for the first half century of her existence. During this characteristic period of our existence, ourfathers in the ministry seemed to have had but one dominantthought, which was that people everywhere of all classes beurged to accept Christ as their personal Savior, acting, asif they felt that nothing further was necessary
