Noank.Conn. PAUL A CASTAWAY. UY aro. VARDEN. PH.D. There are some few passages of Scripture whidh are witb difficulty fitted into thmlogloai systems: nay more, they seem to reslat the current olaaaiflcatlon. Aoooidingly. all the marvelous resourbibs of the moat skillfkil and laborious ezegeaia-grammatlcal, iexioographal, rhetorical, archiealogical and historical-all are summoned to aid in cutting and trlnuning so aa to fit them into the respective system whteh the exe* gete feels called on to defend. The history of biblical exegesis shows that entire books liave been ejected from the canon, liecause some portions of their con* tents did not dovetail into the theological notions of the translator or interpreter. Believing it impossible to reconcile the doctrine of Justifloation aa taught by Jamea witb that taught by Paul. Luther refbaed the Ephitie of James m place in the canon. What infinite pains have Calvlniata, both high and low, Uken In labored exegeals on "Destroy not iiim with tliy meat, for whom Christ died," deeming tbeprima/atie in> terpretation at war with their views of the atonement. A similar difflcuity is.thought to emerge on reading the supposed impossibility "of renewing again to repentance those liaving fallen away." And wluit realms of paper liave been consumed in attempts to vindicate the senthnent of Paul: "I could wish myself aocuraed from Christ." Under tlua olaaaiflcatlon fall the language of the Apostle (I Cor. is. 27), who was intent on subdueing theiustaofthe fisab, "leat by any n&eans he should become a castaway." It can hardly be doubted tlilat Paai,"when he wrote this EpisUe, or at least this part of it, appears to linve been nnder the apprehension, perhaps a momentary or temporary one, that after liavlng been instmmental in imding others to Olirlst, he Idmself might be lost. Diveated of ali dogmauo bias, the leader, whether of the Engliah version or of the origlnid, wbidd, we feel sure, atonee get thla Idea. This langiuie of Paul eiieita the greater attention aa pntaining to his own individual dakhiy,jnat aa doea the passage above cited. And then, by direct inferenoe, if Paul could become a castaway, who may not? But It goes wltlwnt Slaying that this text to antagoniie the doctrtaie bf the pniaezvation of the aalnta, which the Apoatle so fully, so unequivocally, ab boldly seta forth. Passagei to this efflmit struggle fior citation, a boat of such irill occur to thaieader.

Turretine, wbo in Loom Quartua De ElecHonia certuudine, deems it necessary to take to pieces tius text, whose obvious meaning hnplnges, as Turrethie sees, on the certahity of election. Of what he has written this is the sum: Adokimot (castaway) Is compounded of dokttno$ and (Upha privative. Now dokimob algnlfies one wbo Is fit or adapted for a given work: with the negative therefore it means one who is not fit or adapted for the work to which he Is called. Hence Paul says that he keeps his body under, tlat he sedulously suppresses the nascent inclinations of all sensual desire, lest by leading a life too unrestrained (vitam licentioaiorem), he sliouid thereby become diiqualifled for the work of preaching the gospel, to wuch he had been called.

2 2 BAPTIST AND RETLBOTOB, MAY 10,1900 I of perfecuon where be does not ueed to study the Bible. It is not poenlble. however, for ever>one to attend the regulh seciilodb of the Bible School each Sunday morning. The Home Department has been organized far themi. It la a regular department of the Sunday-BChool, juet aa much as the primary, intermediate, or adnit departmenta. The membem are entitled to all the privileges of the achool and heartily welcomed at Ita aeaiiona whenever they can attend. The duties of a member of the Home Department are: 1. To study the regular Sunday-BChool lesson each week for at least half nu hour, whenever it is most convenient. 2 To make a Suuday school olferlug (If no dlspobed) weekly or ( uarterly. 8. To visit the Sunday-school session, when convenient. 4. To keep a weekly record of lessons studied, visits to Sunday-eciiool, and oirering. The organization of the Home Department la very Dimple. The ofllcers are a superintendent, a secretary and treasure!, and the visitors. The superintendent has general oversght of the entire work, appoints the vibltors, holds quarterly conferencee with them, and through the secretary makes a quarterly report of this department to the main school. The secretary and treasurer keeps a record of the memben assigned to the visitors and notes the quarterly reporta sent in by each member. The visitor will cau upon the members of the department" assigned to them at leaat once a quarter, oftener If neceesary. They distribate the lesaon helps, together with the report cards and collection envelopes and leave new ones in their places. Thus each member la expected to keep a record of the lessons studied and the ofterlng he or she niakes. By this plan every member of the church and congregation can be a member of the Sunday-school. They will have special InducemenU to study their Bibles regularly and keep in touch with the mullons who are studying the same lessons every week. They will receive at least four friendly Chriatian vlaita a year, have a share in the benevolent work of the Sunday-school and we hope will become ao intereeted that they will seek to get others to Join with them in the study of Gods Wotd. No other church in the city has thus far introduced this department of work. There an numeroua other organizations, which I can merely mention. The Baptist Young Peoples Union meets every Thursday night, and is doing au extensive work for the young people. A Bible readers class Is conducted by the pastor, under its auspices. The course of study is that prescribed by the Baptist Union, and rtqutres the reading of the entire Bible in four years. Large numben outside the organisation are following the course as announced each week upon the church calendar. The Womans Christian Association, including most of the women of the church, is doing a very large and important philanthropic work. 7he Baptitt Viaitor, of which Mrs. Laura D. Eakin is editor, is published every month by this organizstion. The Womans Missionary Society, numbering one hundred members, is keeping the church thoroughly interested in home and foreign missions. The Dorcas Circle, in its ministry to the needy and general helpfulness, lias become one of the most Important and prominent in the church. The White Rose Band is aecking to cultivate a missionary spirit among the young women. A Junior Baptist Union hm been organized to train boys and girls in Christian activity, and is proving exoingly popular. The apeclal work being done for men will be described in a sieparate article. In addition to these organlzitlons, there are various committees that are doing a successful and important work. The Finance Committee is endeavoring to get every member of the church to make aweekly contribution for currant expenses. The Missionary Committee of twenty- Ave members la seeking to iucnlcate the principle of systematic benefloence by aaklng every member for a montlily contribution to the various missionary ol>- Jecti. Space and time do not permit a description of the work done by other oommltteea. The church aiins to be an institution of "organized kindness." It would go about aa its Maater "doing good." It may look to some like wheel within wheel," but every organiaation reoognlsea the chotoh as being supreme and does its work for Christs sake. The people "have mind to workvaud are bringing things to pass." Ohattanooga, Teon., -Tlie First BMpUsi Ouurcb of Dayton, Tenn,, is now wltlioat hooss of worship.

I dislike the habii some of my brethren have of publishing to the world the number of conversions that have been made through their ministry during any given period of time. - Some have the habit of publishing the number that has occarred daring the period of a year; others slnoe they assumed the pastorate of the church or churches to whlbh they minister. I dislike all such publications. It smacks of boasting. It reads like an advertisement. Even phyblclans are too modest to publish the number of cures they have eltected In a given time in their practice. Surely the miuister of the meek and lowly JesuB ought uot to be less modest. It does great injustice to other brethren who have labored none the lc» efllcleutly and successfully In the Loids great harvest «eld. Our Iiord says: "One soweth and another reapeth.... Uther men labored and ye have entered into their labors." Often the fruit of a successful revival meeting is due almost entirely to the faithful instructions and warnings of au earnest pastor, who was denied the Joy of gathering the harvest of his consecrated toil and eirort. Then again I dislike this numbering of conversions because it Is so very unreliable. How many of the hundreds of conversions reported to our denominational press prove to be genuine? I know of one brother who reported 130 conversions in one meeting held by him. One year from that time I visited that church, land upon Inquiry found that only about thirty of the number reported by him as converted had united with any church organization, and that only about half the number who Joined the church gave evidence of regeneration. I think this was an extreme case, yet It terves to show how unreliable are these reports of the number of profersed conversions that occur In the average revival meeting. I suggest to the brethren that In writing up their reports of the number of conversions In their meetings that they use for their data the number that have united with the churches and whose conduct give evidence that their faith rests not in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. I close this first item of my dislikes by saying that the church of which I am pastor at Mossy Creek recently cloecd a very Interesting and profitable meeting of two weeks duration, under the influence of which Christians were greatly edified, the church Btreugtbened and thirteen were added to our number by experience and baptism.

Religion la not dcsigoed to meet the ideal, but the real needs of the human heart. It does hold np an Ideal, but it looks at life Just as life is. Religion meets conditions. Its duty Is to see the actual need of the individual and to supply ttiat need. It owes a solemn obligation to every one it touches. Now here is a home. The ideal is that in that home there will be family prayers, the Bible will be read and explained, reverence for Ood will be taught, the religion of Cnrist will be emphasized alwve everything else. What, though, are the actual facts? How many tiomes reach the ideal? Alas! too many fall far short of it. What are we to do7 Say It is the duty of the parents to teach the children? Yes, it is their duty, but l/iey do not perform U. This condition must be remedied. I do uot say that the Sunday-school can or should l>e a substitute for home Uaiuing. I do say, however, that the children must be trained. If the parents will not do it, we mtui. If they try, we supplement. It Is of little profit to say who is at fault. We must get down to business and do the work. Let us emphasize the words of our aubjeot. The debt we owe Is religious Inatruction. The lint question that arises Is, do they need it? Do the oiiudnn need the message the Bible brings? Will it make them t>ettcr men and women? l.f so, every instinct demands that we give It to them. Tills materialistic age will ruin them forever If we do not inoculate them before the poison sets Id. The next question about thia debt Is the kind of instruction. Tlie answer, of coarse, would be tlut tiuit luslruotion ahoold glveaelw knowledge of the Bible. Nothing is more suiking than that this age Is very superfiolal In Christian knowledge.,.the naaon wa have so many skepliixi ia because there ia ao mndi ignorance of Ohriathui troth. We need to et down to bed rock and teach what the Bible aaya. Ty«do not need the emotion tiut plays on the aarfaoe tender tavorabte oonditlons aa mnch m we need the tmotion that surges in mens hearts when they are swayed by a clear vision of a great truth. I do not wish to destroy any emotion. What I wish to say is that we shall have a more firmly established religion if we have a better knowledge of it. But mere intellectuality is not what we want. <)ur teaching must go farther and reach the lm»rt. All our eflbrts to give knowledge must bend to the one aim of brmging the will of the child into obedience to God. The best way to make man is to-get him to submit to Christ. We must labor to this end. We instruct the child and pray the Holy Spirit to convert him. I want to emphasize that this debt of religious instruction is to children. And we must pay the debt while they are children, else we shall have little chance to pay It. As a matter of fact, over ceveuiyilve {ler cent, of the converts to our churches come directly from the Sunday-school, and a large per cent of the adults who are converted have been trained in the Sunday-school. We believe this will hold true on our foreign fieldu. I have a theory that the large number of conventions on the foreign fields this year grows out of tiie fact that we have had time to train a generation in Ciiristiau truths. This is going to ba more apparent aa the yean go on and we push our Sunday-BChool work. The next generation will see marvelous harvestn as a result of what our mishionaries aie doing lu the Sunday-schools. We know how dinicult it is to reach a hardened sinner at home. It is more difllcult abroad. How Imperative it Is then that we pay this debt to childhood. The day IB coming when the church will look upon the Sundayschool as Its most eflectlve evangelistic agency. Tlie debt is to tlie children. We must train these lives for Christ. The child should be so carefully guarded and trained that it will be converted iiefore.t kiiowa much, in an experimental way, about sin. This does not do away with conversion; it only emphasizes the time when It should occur. The over anxiety that many have about children confesslng Christ is unnecessary and often absurd. The child with iu simple, trustful child-heart can more easily accept Christ than one who has been hardenei by sinful experiences. More than that, the person reached by Christ early in life will very probably be a truer Christian than the one who has t)een converted after forming strong habits of evil. One other word needs emphasis. It is our debt. We who love Christ, we who expect to stand l>efore the Judgment throne, we who love the children, owe this debt. Are we paying our debt to childhood? Nashville, Tenn. WHAT HAS FREEDOM DONE FOR THE NEORO? RV REV. A. B. OAIIANISS. The above subject was dlscusseu lu Tiiskegee, Ala., in the Workers Educational Conference, composed of Southern white and negro teachers, February 22nd. A majority of the speakers asserted that there had been a steady progress along all lines. A very common report was that when a man deserved respect he got it, regardless of race. J. C. Napier, a colored lawyer of Nashville, said he had practice two years in the courts there, and his experience had shown him that almost without exception white Juries were willing to give negroes the same chance as white men. The presidents of several large white educational institutions leported that they bought their supplies from negro grocers and butchers, not as a matter of senthnent, but because they got firstclass goods at low prices. The above encouraging facts are obtained from a report in the Nouthville American ot February 20tb. As tben is much skepticism and still more Ignorance on, tills snttject, especially among our Northern friends, I wish to add my testimony to the above. Since the war I was acquainted with the president of a white educational Instltutloh who bought matiy of his goods of a negro grocer becauw he got what be wanted at low rates. I was rwently In a village where there was a white and also a negro butcher. Thelady of the house told me she bought her meats of the negro because he was "llie more reliable of the two butcbere. I am now writhig in the house of Bev. J. H. Ander- MD of Watertown, Tenn.

When I went into the country the white people enquired about this negros chances for life with as mnch interest as they would a white mans. I knew this negro had erected a large block of buildings and owned other property in town. When I asked the citizens what he was worth they said his estate was eatimated at not less than 7r> 000. Of course this may liave been an overestimate. I give these facts to prove the correctness of the saying that here at the South when a negro deserves respect he gets it, regardless of race. That the negroes have made rapid progress on educational lines no one can doubt, if they will go into the negro Baptist Sunday-school Publication Societys building lu Nashville and see the presses and binding, ail worked by negroes, on tracts, periodicals and books, all written by negroes. The Methodist negroes have also a publication house of the same kind, run by negroes, iu Nashville. This shows that the negroes of the South have made more progress in thirty-five yean of freedom than the Jewish whites made in four or five hundred years after their freedom fixim Egyptian slavery. But the negroes were prepared for this by their long con- Uct with the Christian civilization of the whites, and then by the millions of dollare given to their free sciiools since the war by their former masten. Hence tleir remarkable progress. MORMONISM.-A MENACE. HV EIKIAK K. FOLK. D.D. If Mormonism be such an iniquitous system as we iiave seen it to be, historically, doctrlnally and morally, will It not sink by the weight of its own Iniquity, and if so how does it constitute any menace to our American lustltutlous? In what respect does It threaten them? 1. In the first place it is a menace to our homes. A home! the dwelling place of the husband and wife, of father and mother and children, of brothen and sisters; the one place iu ail the world which they can call their own and where they may feel free from all restraints; the place hallowed by love and made dear by tenderestties, and around which our fondest memories cluster; a sweet, a pure, a modest Chrlstton home be it ever so humble, theres no place like home." On such a home Gods brightest smiles are thrown and his richest benedictions rest. In such a home "Heaven comes down our rouls to greet," and around it guardian angels hover. Such a home is the foundation of all good government, the bulwark of society, the Gibraltar of our civilization, the haven of rest for Houls weary with worldly cares, the plant-bed of religion, the nursery of all that Is noblest and truest In our natures, the very Gettysburg of our history, the battle ground on which our lifes destiny is fonght and decided, and on whose momentous issues eternal Interests are hung. 1 do not mean to say that the Mormons have no homes. But under their system of polygamy which, as I have shown they believe in, and which is a part, an important, almost an essential part of their nllgion-the home is robbed of much of Its significance and happiness. The wife Is simply a woman, and the home is transformed luto a barnyard, or into an assignation house. All of the tenderer, more delicate feelings which should exist between husband and wife the mutual sympathy and dependence, the intimate relations which make each an essential part of the other-are necessarily broken down to a grmter or lees extent when there are several to share the husbands afitectlons. Nor is the home the same to the cblldnn. TIm father Is almost a stranger to them. They do not have the same love for the home, and the home doea not exert the same iufiuence over them aa ia the case when ttere is Just one family, composed of fkther and mother and chudren. And so Mormonism conautiites a menace to the home. And as long aa it oonunues its belief In and pracuce of polygamy-whlch ia likely to be aa long M it exisu-it will be as much a blot upon our social system aa over slavery waa. Aa it was with slavery, ao ahall it be with Mormonism, iwner or later-it must be either mended or ended, and like slaveiy the best way to mend It la to end it. 2 It oonatitutes a menace to the Chriatian religion. It is not only nn ChriaUan, but anti Chriatian. It doea not regard anyote as saved outside of ita own pale. It alma at breaking down all Chriatian denominations and cteeds, but ia itself aubveraiva of the principles of Chrlatianity. It is another rod»ety dlfl-ennt gospel which It preachee fkom thatof aalvation by graoe throngh futh in Jeaua Ghrbt. Fknl bad never beud of Momoniam, of oourae, but he deacrlbed It pretty aoonrately when be wrote to the Qai- tians: " I marvel that ye ate ao soon nmoved fhim him that called yon bto the gtw» of Ohiiat unto an* other goapel! which ia not anotheii but thm» be aome that trouble yon, and would pervert the gospel of Christ But though we, or an angel fitom heavmi, preach any otlier goapel unto yon than that wbich we have preached unto you, let liim be acouraed. As we said before, eo aay I now again. If any man preach any other gospel unto yon than that ye have received, let him be accntmd." (Gal. i. 6-9). Itaonndsalso aa if Paul waa talking about Mormona when he said to nmothy: "Thia know also, that in the last days perilous timea sliall come. For men ahall be loven of their own selves, covetous, boaatera, proud, blasphemere, dunbedient to parenta, unthankful, unholy, without natural afltecuon, tmoe-breaken. falae accusers. Incontinent, fierce, deaplsere of thoae that are good, tralton, heady, highmindcd, loven of pleasures more than loven of God: bavhig a form of godlhiess. but denying the power tliereof: fnmi anch turn away. For of this sort an they which creep into houses, and lead capuve auly women laden with aina. led away witl dlven lusts, ever leamhig, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Now Jftnna and Jambres withstood Moeea, ao do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith." (2 Tim. ill. 1-8). Jade must certainly have been thinking about Mormon elden when he wrote: "For then are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God Into laacivionsneee, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus ChrUt." (Jude 4). And to whom are tlie words of John so appropriate as tomormon elden: " Whosoever transgresseth, and abldeth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abldeth in the doctrine of Christ, he bath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto yon, and bring not this doctrine, receive bim not into your house, neither bid liim God speed: for he that biddeth bhn God speed ia partaker of his evil deeds." (2 John 9-11). I did not say that. The kind, the genue, the loving, the beloved Johnsaid It. And be waa talking about Mormon elden when he said it. The Mormon elden have three objects in view as they go through the country. (1) To undermine the ChrisUan religion and subautute their aemi-heathen- Ism in its place. (2) To convert au the men they can so as to get their money and their votes. (8) To convert all the women they can for thehr polygamous wives. As I have shown, they are making no couterta at home, either among the men or the women, and so they must gain convertaabroad or they will soon perish. I do not believe in hanging or shooung or rottenegging these elden. In the fint place it is not right, and in the second place it givea them the opportunity to cry penecution, which they love to do. But I do not believe that we are called upon to receive them Into our homes and anpport them while they an trying to subvert our religion and pervert our family. If they must engage in such work, let their friends at leaat support them whue they are doing so. When we entertain them, we may find too late that like the fumer in Aesops fable, we had been nunlng a viper which rewarded our hospitality by striking its fangs into our bosom. I have heard of several instancea of the kind recently. 8. Mormonism constltutci a menace to our political insututlons. I said that no one who knows It has much respect for Mormonhnu aa a religious system. Bat every one baa a great deal of respect for it as a political aystem. As a matter f flsct it is much more of m poutical system than a religious system. In a recent issue of the AtiaiMo Monthly Mr. B. L. Hart declares the Mormon Ghtutch to be a "perfectly conscienceless poiiucal maohlne, abeolutely accurate in ita every movement, atrong aa Tammany and twice as treaaonable, and that it ia at once a religion, an empire, a fkatemity, a trust and a partnenhip In crime." And ao it ia. The memben of the Mormon Church vote M completely at the dictation of their leaden aa do the memben of lmanyhau at tim dictation of their leaden. Thy do not au vote the same ticket now.

It is a dreadful thing to fight againat or in any manner oppose the priesthood." Moaaa Tliatoher And Brigbam Roberta evidently found it so. Preddent Gowans aaid: "Their priesthood gives them the right to advise and instruct the SainU,and tbelr Jiiriadic- Uon extends over all thuigs, spiritual or tponl." Brigbam Young claimed the right to control everything, fkom the setting up of a siockhig to the ribns on a womans bonnet.. - Theocracy, the chdm that Gc governs the cburob through Ita president, is a fundamental prinple.of the Mormon creed.

When tdd that such a scheme seemed rather visionary, in yiew ol the fact that Utah could not gain recognluon as a State. Bishop Lunt replied: "Do not be deceived; we Me looking after that... We hitendto baveutah recognized as a State. To day we hold tlie balance of pollucal power in Idaho, we rule Utah abeolutely, and in a very short time we will hold the baiance of power in Arizona and Wyoming. A few months ago, President Snow of St George eet out with band of priests for an extensive tour through GoloMdo, New Mexico, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho and Arizona to proselyte. We also expect to send missionaries to some parts of Nevada, and we design to plant colonies in WashUigton Territory. "In the past six months we have sent more tlun of our people down through the Sevier Valleyto settle in Arizona, and the movement still progrearw. All this will build up for us a polltiod power, which will In time compel the homage of the demagoguea of the country. Our vote is solid; and will remain ao. It will be thrown where the most good will be acctnnplisbed for the Church. Then, in some poilucftl chsis, the two present political parties will bid far our rapport. Utah will then be admitted as polygamous State, and the other territories we have peamfully subjugated will be admitted also.-we wul then bold the balance of power, and wlll dlctateto the eotmtiy.

A Conscience Fund. Some years ago the writer hereof received a money order which was enclosed In a letter that read about as followei: Dear Bro. //««. Please find enclosed a money order for I-. This l8 the prlndpal and Interest of an amount I Bubacrlbed toward your salary when you were pastor at ten years ago, and which I never paid. I have no excuce to ofrr for my cowardly conduct, becaute it waa simply inexcusable. But now I have made my peace with Qod, and I am settling up all old tcores, and I trust you will receive the enclosed amount in the spirit in which it is sent. Ma/ Ood forgive me and bless you. Your brother,." Bo frequently sums of money are sent to the United Btatea Treasury Department with the statement that these are principal and interest of sums stolen in other dayp, that the conscience fund of the Oovernment has grown to be quite a large amount. It Is thought that If all the money stolen from the Government were to be thus returned, the couscience fund would pay the national debt. It ib a favorable omen to note these evident slgnn of an awakened public conscience. A brighter day is dawning for our people all, when the conscience fund grows greater. It is a long step towards repentance and reform when reatitution is made. One thing seems characterlatio of those who make restltutlou; tbeyall conceal,their names. Jast ao they make the rmtitution fairly Dd iquarely, they seem to think that it is not ueoeuary to advertise their namca.,!,there imms to be some good reaaonftu aach a course. I f the pwsou baa made his peace with God,*and makca rertituuon to man, what more could be demand? Thehama re- VMkied would draw uponi such a psiaon goth oommeiit and crltictam, which Blight be both anjust and embarrawing. Bu far as floanotal reatitutlou Is flonoeriiwl.

It baa bmo anggeatad to tba Btoiata* rjbj* balovwl pmtor, that tba Btate BAPTIST AND EKlXiKCTOB, MAY Board open up a conscience fund, with an appeal through our paper to all who have wronged the Lords treasnry out of anything in the past to come forward with their restitutions. Actlug upon this suggesuon the SecrcUry will open up such a fund providing some one will start it, and will keep it designated as the coructcncc /nmt. Whosoever, therefore, may read this notice or learn of it, that has in any way not been honest with God, who has vowed unto the Lord and failed to perform unto the Lord bis vows; who may feel deep down in heart that he has been wronging the cause of Christ, all such persons and all others who may feel before God that they ought to make restitution unto the Lords cause, are hereby Invited to send just what their consciences may dictate to this conscience fund to be used as they may indicate. With the permission of the editor, contributions to this fund will be published In the Baptist and Rbfleotoh, and unless It la particularly desired the naoich of such contributoro will not appear. It Is not at all necessary that the names be given to the Secretary, nor will he attempt to discover the Identity of the donor where it Is the wish of such to remain unknown. The object is to give conscientious people an opportunity and an Invitation to regulate, so far as possible, their accounts with the Lord. Such a fund, if any be realized, will be sacredly devoted to the objects indicated by the donor. There is nothing outside of heaven so sweet as a conscience void of oltdnce toward God and man. And there is nothing that forma a more Insurmountable barrier to a throne of grace and a surer destroyer of our own peace of mind than a guilty conscience. Brother, elster, friends, pray over thia and may God help ns all to be honest with ourselves and with Qod. A. J. Holt, Cor. Sec. Nashville, Tenn. WOMANS MISSIONARY UNION.

I am Indeed glad that we can say of Tenneesee what Miss Armstrong says of the W. M.

Several womans meetinis have been held this month al the llfth Sunday meetings. One Vice-president writing to me for literature to distribute at this time, says: "If we all would only read more about missions and the work needed, we would be more Interaited I am sure. People will not become interested In something that they have no knowledge of." How true this is! Let any who can distribute our missionary literature, not fall to send to me for a supply. I feel like ({uoting from a letter of a young lady who has for a long time tried to organize a missionary society in her church. Some mouths ago a society was formed, and Indications were hopeful. Now having allowed themselves to become cislly discouraged, they have failed to meet for some time. The earnest llttlo secretary writes: "Although tbe others havo turned back I will contlnuti to work for tbe Master and for missions.,i am more interested in misalon work than I have ever,been. I love3tbe work and I talk it every where I go." Such a spirit must be well pleasing In tbe Lords sight. One daar woman writes:" You cannot appracute what it/,meana to bof leader of % mliaionary soolaty in a! church where many of tba oldest luid moat Influential membara are oppoaed to womans work, and evan danooooa It publloly." How w«long to imlp, tua slstar, and at tbe aama tlma bow grateful we are that the territory wherein such opinions hold is growing smaller every day. A cheering report has just come from Henning telling of a recently organized womans society. We feel very glad Indeed of this, as the correspondent from there has for sometime been one of the most earnest on our list, and her contributions to our Expense Fund regular and liberal. We wish them every succets, and are sure that tba work will prove a blessing to them. Mrs. W. C. Ooiden. B. V. P. U. DEPARTMENT. BY REV. W. O. OOIiDEN. Daily Bible Readings. M.

He may be or seem a little lonesome at times, but he will have company. As we think of Daniel let us not forget Sbadraoh, Meshach and Abednego. Daniel determined on a temperate lifv and his companions stood by him, and the Lord stood by them, and their lives became powerful as such lives au ways do. 1. Temperate lives reprove. There was no one in all the kings house but that felt the force of Daniels words and still more bis conduct. When a mans life is right all wrong doing receivm a lance by It. Bight living is the brightest kind of reproof and makes it hard fur others to du wrong. 2. Temperate Uvea leach. Any kind of a life teaches. A wrong life teaches someone else wrong. The power lo teach wrong does not measure our power to do right, but It shows that we have ability and endowments for good. A temperate life will teach otliers to be temperate also. 8. Temperate lives in»pire. Daniels former life was an Inspiration in the time of his trhil. The lesaon only menuons -Daniel as having declared against the kings wine, but his life was an insplntion not only to do so still, but Inspired bis companions to follow his example. The Influence of a determined temperate 11 fd is not lost. 4. Temperate lives, eoni»inoe. The kings cbamberiain, >Melsu, feared ibr the reaults, and wanted Daniel to eat and druik that which waa appointed by tbe king. But Daniel was willing to be put to the test. When the appointed time was up Melau Was convinced and Daniel and his friends appeared before the king and "he found them" ten times better" than any others (verse 20) In BAFnST AND BBFLBGTOB, MAY 10, cause self-control Is necessary before we control others. 7. Temperance la tbe highest kind of freedom except tbe freedom given by Christ. 8. The temperance worker should begin at home and work ont into tbe world. * Ttie Spirit of Christ. "Now if any man bave not the Spirit of Christ he Is none of his." (Bom. vlll. 0). How may we know If we bave the Spirit of Christ? "The Spirit Itself beareth witness with onr spirit that we are the children of God." (Bom. vlll. 16). We need no one to tell us If we bave tbe Spirit of Christ, for we have the witness within us. Then what is the Spirit of Christ? It is the same to-day as limn) yeara ago. It was then and Is now to do the Fathers will, and bla will was to help tbe belplees, lift up the fallen, and for every creature of mankind to bear the glad* tidings of great Joy. "And he said unto them. Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature." (Mark xvl. 15). Not to the foreign and neglect the home, nor at home and neglect the foreign, but to all alike, to the poor aa much as the rich. Let them that have no money know that salvation is free. The richest man in this life is the man who has the brightest hopes of one day looking Into heaven and being with the blood-washed throng and with Him from whose side issued the gulltlees blood In wblcb every person who feels tbe weight of sin may have their souls made white and at last t>a welcomed Into tbe courts of eternal happiness. I fear that a great many times we ate not humble enough. We get too high-minded, and those who are kept from cbnrch on account of clothing are neglected, when we, by lending a helping hand, might be tbe means of raising such persons to a higher life. My brother or sister, dont let the i>plrit of pride keep you from a pliice where you may do good- for the Master. While the spirit of tbe world looks down on a certain class of people, there has never been a person so low but what Christ will come In if he will submit. Will you go to such places as need your help? The spirit of pride says dont go. The Spirit of Christ says go.-avno will you obey? " If any man have not the Spirit of Christ he is none of his." " Pure remglon and undeflled before God and the Father Is this, to visit the fatherless and widows In their altllctlon and to kmp himself unspotted from the world." (Jas ). There a sphrlt that has a tendency to help those from whom they expect a recompenee, bnt this Is not the Spirit of Christ, but ia contrary to tbe teach- Ing of the word of Ood. May the Lord bless every eflvirt for good Is my prayer., J. W. COOJUBV., Miseionary Union Association. Doyle, Tenn. I!iJ.Tbe Fleming Monument.

Informed me, had already been placed at Bro. F.s grave at Tuscumblaby bhi widow. Bro. Moody said that the church at T. would do her part, though she bad been for months paying Bro. F.s salary to his wife and creditoia alter his sickness and death. I wrote Bro.. Wood what we proposed to do, and asked that tbe churches rake tbe amount and keep the matter out of tbe papers for the sake ot Bro. Flemhig and the churches, as well as for the sake of Bro. Wood. People would thhik that be was getting rich ont of the va»t sums that came pourhig In through the malls In response to his appeals through the press, when perhaps be had not received a dollar In this way. At our next meeting tbe Liberty Church agreed to raise her «I0. A committee of five was appointed to see every member of the church and all others who wanted to contrlbnte to this object. The result waa that the $10 was raised, and a few dollars besides were sent to Mrs. Fleming. Tuscuiubla had no pastor then. Bro. T. L. Hendon is now pastor there. If the matter is laid befor hun I am sure that he will see that it Is attended to, If it has not been done already. I merely write this In order to show that the churches that Bro. F. was serving at the time of his death were not lacking in devotion to him. The example of Tuscumbla Church is worthy of emulation. For several months she deprived herself of the service of a pastor and continaed to pay Bro. Flemings salary after his death. The Lord rewarded her for this good work by sending her that prhicely man of God, Bev. T. L. Hendon, one of Alabamas noblest sons. And now let tbe pastor of each church In Tenneesee that was served by Bro. Fleming lay the matter before the church at its next meeting. Let him appoint three or five good collectors and give, them a month in which to see ail the members and get a small contribution from each. You will be gratified at the result. B. F. SrAMPS.

I regretted that t could not accept the kind invitation of friends and remain longer in Loa Angeles. My stay of a day and a half there was all too abort. I could have spait a week or even a 3th pleasantly and profitably. But after more Fthan a months absence from home time bn to seem pretty precious. 80 leaving Los Angeles about 8 oclock on the morning of Dec.»th another wondrously beautiful sunshiny day a little over an hours run through orange groves on either side laden with luscious fruit brought me to TOMOXA. One pleasure I anticipated in going to California was in seeing my friend), Dr. and Mrs. A. C. Bryan, formerly from this State, now living at Pomona. Tii were members of the church at Harfreesboro while I was pastor there, and ever since their removal to California, some dozen years ago, th have been writing to me about the land of sunshine and of fmits and of flowers and invit. ing me to come out and make them a visit. It so happened, however, that Just before I started West Mrs. Bryan came East to see her relatives and friends here. But Dr. Biyan was at home and was expecting me. Soon we were In his phaeton behind "Dixie" driving out Holt A.venne I am not sure whether the avenue was named for our beloved secretary or not. This is a broad, beautiful, well paved road, lined on either side with pepper trees whidi take their name from the fiict that In ad. dition to their long, low-hanging branches they have large bunches of berries resembling red pepper. The avoine extends from Pomona to Riverside, a distance of about eight miles. For the whole distance It runs through orange and lemon groves, with row after row of trees laden with the golden Droit. There are no fences, and with nothing be. tween yoo and the fhilt the temptation to stop and plodc acnne of it is almost irresistible. Aboat four miles ont we tamed In at the home of Mr. A. L. King. Mrs. King and another lady were dttlng out In a sammw house on the 0th day of Deoember-wlng. She kii called Sir. King. He gave me ipenuisbloo to eat all the otaiqtai I wanted whldi privilege I waa not dowtoavallnqraell Wereyoa eyor tnmed loose Inanoiange grove? Well, yoa have been In a pcaeh ordiaidorapa cberiy treeoronderagcape aibor, ormajbib In a watenndon patch, when yon w«ras llog-;orooorbe with the eonanit of the own. cr, and so yoa know liow I ful And then I cqwet joa Jmow liow I fdt alterwatds, Willie I «aa callnf orugcb llbr. iong wu Vlnf - qf.iv me some information about orange and lemon culture in Galifomia. Mr. King lives on what is cau the Nemaha tract of land. It consists of 120 acres, divided Into farms of from five to ten acres. It is valued at anywhere from 1500 to $1,200 or even as high as 12,000 an acre. The orange trees bear at about five years of age, so that one most have some monoy ahead In order to enable him to plant an orange grove and wait on the firait Lemons pay lietter than oranges. They are hardier and are * picked every four wveks. "Riey bring from #160 to fl,000 an acre, gross. The expenseof raising lemons and oranges Is about a month an acre for cultivation, or $125 a year. This Includes a man to attend to It, irrigation and fertilieation. One man can care for fktun 50 to 100 acres. A number of formers together will employ a man. Water costs about tlo an acre a year, and fertllixers about f 12 an acre a year, leaving about f 100 an acre a year for the services of the attendant. This seems a little high, but it is necessary to have an expert in the business in order to make the grove pay. "There Is millions "in an orange grove when properly cared for, but if not it is likely to ran to waste, and the millions may go the other way. Before I left, Mr. King loaded down our bug with oranges, singly and in bunches, lemoild, grape fhiit» California persimmons, etc. I bad to buy an extra telescope to bring them all home with me. Dr. Bryan and myself had another delightful ride that afternoon In a different section of the country, again through orange and lemon groves, long rows of pepper trees, and one magnificent avenue of Eucalyptus trees. Besides the fhiits I mentioned, there were roses and magnolias In bloom. In fact, fruits and flowers seem to grow there the year round. Dr. Bryan had saved a nice watermelon for me. I had the pleasure also on December 10th of plucking ripe peaches off the trees and eating them. Pomona is a beantifui little city of about 8,000 inhabitants, with a large number of attractive homes in it. The Baptist Church has about 250 members, among them many of the best people of the town. Rev. P. J. Ward was the popular pastor of the church when I was there. He has since accepted a call to the Central Baptist Church, Los Angeles. I enjoyed taking supper on Saturday night In his hospitable home. I had tlie pleasure also of preaching for him on Sunday morning. There were 162 In the Sundayschool. The audience was large and very attentivo and seemed to appreciate the simple, old-fashioned gospel. EiKiAB E. Folk. DR LOFTONS TWELFTH ANNIVERSARY. Dr. O. A. Lofton celebrated on last Sunday his twelfth anniversary as pastor of the Central Baptist Church, this city. In the morning he preached a sermon appropriate to the occasion fh)m which we take the following focts: Received into the church, 925 members; made 10,800 pastoral visits; preached 1,248 sermons; delivered 350 iilnstrated lectures; addressed 580 prayer meetings and 580 Young Peoples Unions; taught Sundayschool class every Sabbath when present; conducted 12 revival meetings In the church; preached 296 funeral&, of which 103 were for members of the Central Baptist Church; solemni»>d 193 marriages; delivered 12 commencement sermons and 15 addresses at summer Chautauquas; dedicated 5 churches; attended 132 State Mission Board meetings, 93 Sunday-school Board meeungs, 42 College Trustee meetings, 580 pastors conferences, 84 Baptist Oonventions, Congresses and flfth Sunday meetings, beoles many other meetings not denominated; perbonaily contributed about 13,000 to all purposes; spent A months of travel and study In Europe; wrote and published 7 books, as fouows: "Character Sketches," "Harp of LUIb," "A Review of the Question," "Review of Dr. J. B. Thomai," " im{iish Baptist ReformaUon," "Jessey Reoorda and Klffln Manuscript," "So, or thegospd In a Monoeiyllable," n ta process ofpobllcaumi, and several hnndred newspaper articles. After the sermon he administered the Lords soppar to the largest nomber of Baptists he ever saw gathered together In NashvUle, he Mid. At 8 o*)ck In the afternoon, al the saggeauon of some of the other paitoib In the city, there wu another large audience present composed of members of all the Baptist Churches in the city, as well as members of the Central Church. Rev. W. C. Gold«i presided. Prof. J. E. Bailey spoke on behalf of the church. Rev. J. O. Rust on behalf of the Baptist pastors in the city. Rev. J. b. Erwin on behalf of South Nashville, and Dr. Landng Burroira on behalf of the Baptists at htrge. Itev. W. T. Rogers and Dis. J. M. Fcust and P. B. (Guernsey also made brief talks. All of the eakets paid high tribute to Dr. Infton, and to the noble work which he has accomplished daring his twelve years* pastorate at the Central Qiurch. At the conclusion of the exercises Prof. J. E. Bailey presented to Mrs. Lofton a beautiful chamber set, and to Dr. Lofton an elegant charm on behalf of the ladles of the church. Bro. W. O. M. Campbell also presented to Dr. Lifton on behalf of the brethren of the church a check to pay his expenses to the Southern Baptist Convention. The whole affair was quite pleasant and greatly enjoyed. Dr. Lofton is large in body, large in mind, large in heart and large in soul, a great preacher and a grreat writer. One may not agree with everything ho says. In fact, several of the speakers expressed dissent as to his 1641 views. But no one that knows him can help admiring hiiu and loving him. Surrounded by Methodists, Campbellitea and Hardshell Baptists, he has stood as a pillar for our Missionary Baptist principles in South Nashville. We hope that he may be spared to celebrate his S5th anniversary as pastur of the Central Church. THE ECUMENICAL CONFERENCE. We publish on another page a gooil report of the Ecumenical Conference held in New York City recently, ftam the pen of Bro. T. W. Young, of Ann Harbor, with more to follow. This was one of the most Important religious gatherings ever held In the history of the worid. It was a matter 9f deep regret to us that pres<i of work and engag ments elsewhere prevented our being present It was the third Conference of the kind which has lieen held. The one before this met at London in It is estimated that there were about 20,000 delegates and visitors present at the Conference in New York. These represented the most prominent missionaries and missionary workers from all over the world. There was a tone of cheerfulness and of hopefulness in everything they said. The motto of the Conference was, "The Evangelisation of this Generation by this Generation," and in the light of facta and figures presented this begins to look like a possibility, if we may not say a probability. Why not? With steaiushipa and steamengines and telegraphs and telephones and type setting machines and perfecting printing presses, things move much faster now than they ever did before. The world seems to be moving upward and Godward at a geometrical, and not an arithmetical, ratio. There are two parts of the commission as given by Mark: I. "Go ye Into ail the worid." 2. "Preach the gospel to every creature". The fltst part of the commission has been practically fulfilled In this first century of modem mlsslonaiy effort. But the second pari stiu lacks a great deal of fkilflument. We have gone into all the world, bat we have not preached the gospel to every creatore. God has done his part In opening doors, breaking down barriers, and preparing the world for the re. ception of the gospel. Shall we not do oure In carrying that gospel to every creatore? THE DRAMA OF LIFE. The children are In the home with their childish laughter and tears, their chudish joya and sorrows. Theyi«ani speed rapidly by, hauowed and happy with the love and care ofthelltueones growing into manhood and womanhood. By and by the time comes when the oldest must leave Ibr college. The family circle Is broken; the flrstblid has flown and the mother-heart moorni. A ttow happy re-onlons In the sommer, then be goea to live In a distant city, era long brings his bride to tee fiftther and mother and the old home, retonu and has a home and flunlly Uea of his own. The years have passed and onefay oneumohudren have thai gone to homes of their own, vntu at last father and mother, old and gray, are left alone. Year by jr, children and grand-dtiidrai gather in a re-onlon In the old homp, yet some are always kept away. Bot at last all the chlldrm meet once more. But It Is with sobdoed greetings, silent pressures of the hand, and saddened hearts, for the form of father liu cold and lifeless in the old home. The mother gees to live with one of thechildren. Her hair grows grayer, her face more ftirrowed, her spirit more gentle with the passing years, and then mother Is no more. Once again all the children gather, once more the burning tears, the bowed head and anguished heart and mother is laid to rest. And then the children return to their own homes, whore in each the same cycle of fomlly unity, then separation and disruption Is being enacted. Such the outline, but ah! the love and sympathy, the Joys and sorrows and trials, the hallowed Infloence with which those years are filled. And ah! their hallowed memory after they are gone. And after awhile there will be a grand family reunion. Not In theold home, but in that other home, where death shall be no mora; whera thera shall be nelth. er mourning nor crying nor pain any more; whera God shall wipe away every tear flrom the eye, and whera the family circle shall remain unbroken forevermore. A FORWARD MOVE-FIVE THOUSAND A/;!! SUBSCRIBERS. We want 5,000 now subscribers lo the Baitist AND Rkflkitor. Wo ought to have them. If wo had, it woold mean a grcot forward move all along the line in our denominational work. It would give a mighty uplift to State Missions, Home Missions, Foreign Missions, Ministerial Education, Sunday-school and Colportage, Orphann* Home, Ministerial Relief and all other benevolent objects in the State. It would help the pastors, help the churches aud help the cause of Christ over the world. Shall we not make the forward move? How can it be done? Well, if every one of our present subscribers wculd only send us one new subscriber that would give us 5,000 new subscribers and a good many more. Why can they not do so? To assist them In securing the sulhcribers we will make the following proposition: To every old subscriber who will send us one new subscriber and t2.75 we will send a copy of our Teachers Bible or of our fountain pen. But for fear that not every one of our present subscribers will send us a new subscriber we make the following oflbrs: 1. To the old subscriber who will send us a club of five new subscribers at f 1 and 5) c. extra wo will send either the Bible or the pen, besides sending the paper to the subscribers until the eml of the century, 2. To the old subscriber who will send us a club often at each we will send the Bible or the pen, besides sending the paper to them for a year. Now for an advance all along the line.

Every man has more or less money to spend. What Is the prevalllbg direction In which he spends it? One man will spend morefor one thing and another for something else. Find out the thingfor which he spends the largest propor. titm of his money, and jpo can telll his character. If he hoards It op, and refuses to spend any at all, except for the bare necessaries of llfib, he is a miser. If he qpends Itfor something to eat, he is a glutton.

MOODYS LECTURES. As we announced sometime ago, we shall publish the lectures of Dr. J. a Moody to be deliveii before the Bible Institute st the Southwestern Baptiet University this month on the subject of "Distinguishing Doctrines of Baptists." We have made arrangements to have them taken down stenographlcally as delivered by Dr. Moody. They will then be revised by him. We are sure that thoy \iii be read with great Interest and profit by our readers. Tell your friends about them and ask them if they would not like to read the lectures, too. They will run for about ten or twelve weeks. At their conclusion we will begin the publication of the series of articles by tho editor on "The Plan of Salvation." Tell your friends that they may have the paper fh:m now until the end of the century for $1.00. This will give them both of these series, besides the many other good things in the paper. PBR80NAI.

J»J»J» In speaking of the trip from Atlanta to Hot Springs via Nashville the ChrMian Index Mtys: "Dr. Lansing Burrows will Jolu this party at Nashville, and add to the pleasures of the trip by hia genial wit and steady flow of spirits." What kind of spirits? Explain yourself, Brother Bell. Remember the Bible Institute at Jackson, beginning next week. The brethren there ofl)»r ft«e entertainment to all minlbters who attend. We hope a large number will do so. The lectures of Dr. Moody will, we are suire, be more than worth the time and money the trip will cost, to say nothing of anything else on the program. Rev. W. A. Jordan of Dyer will go to the Convention on a Baptist and RbpiiKotor ticket, - which he secured by a little work fbr the paper He writes; "I have found it the easiest matter to get subsorlhers wonder why I have not attempted it before." 80 we think other paston will find it If they will only make a little effort. Tiy it, It is said that Mr. John D. Rockefeller Is opposed to dancing, and has never allowed his children to participate In Its pleasures. His flimily does not go to the theatres, and he will not allow card playing In his house. These things are certainly most commendable In a man of Bfr. Rockefellers wealth aud social standing. We an glad that as a Baptist be sets such a good example. jkjji That Is an Intetestlng article by Dr. Vardeu on oor flnt page. We oannot, however, agree with him In his OMieluBlon. It snms to us that ths view of Dr. Tunetlne, to which he nftos, is a very natural one. Dr. F. B. Meyer has used the iilaatratlon of a pen whloh, while ones quite usrtbl, was after a while east astde. Bo Paul foaied that while he had preaohsd to otheib he hlm ht be a castaway. Chattanooga, AiiheviUe, New Orleans, Savannah which? In behalf of the 1,600 Baptists of Chattanooga and vlolnlty and the Baptists of Tenneme, we extend a cordial invitation to the Convenr tlon to meet in Chattanooga again. It la oenbrai, has good hotel acoommodatlons, a large auditorium, and the momt magnificent scenery of any city in the South. To what better place can the Convention go? We acknowledge receipt of an Invitation to attend the 80th annual Commeuoement of Roger Williams Uuiveralty, Friday evening, May II, Sunday evening, May 18, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, May 14,15, lu, l»ou. We regret tbat absence at the Southern Baptist Convention Just at this time will prevent our attending the Commencement exercises. We trust, however, tbat they may be pleasant. Under the administration of Dr. P. B. Guernsey, the Uulve sityhas been quite prosperous during the past session. J»J»J» A woman was sold at suction In Galveston last week. Sbe brourht 1. Think of iti Hero in fme America, thirty-live years after the war, whloh resulted lu the abolition of slavery I It was appropriate that the nale should have been In a saloon. There will probably be a public outcry against the outrage and the guilty will be punisbed. At least it should be so. And yet there are people being sold Into slavery every dny iu these saloops, men and women. Shall notblur be done about It.? -Dr. Wilbur T. Crafts says that when the Filipinos "play American" tbey stagger. Yet we call ours a ObrlBtlan nation, while we pity the poor Filipinos as Ignorant aud degraded semi-savareh. It looks as if tbey ought (o send mlhslonsrles over lien. And they would if the saloon represented all of our American people. But we inslht tbat it represents only a comparatively small part of tliem only, this part seems to have control of our ofllolals, aud to dictate our national policy, Brother A. L. Davis of Jonesboro calls our attention to the fact, which he gathered from an old paper recently, that The Baptist was started In 1885 and not in 1880, as we have been publishing. We knew this fact iiefore, aud intended changing the figures to oorrespond, but had overlooked the matter. The figures were changed last week. We have now on our desk, kindly loaned us by a Arlend, the flnt copy of The Bapttat ever published. It is dated Jan. 1, Sometime soon we shall tell our readen about some of the things lu this aud succeeding Issuesof the paper, which we tbiuk will be of Interest. -The reports which come from our various Boards are very gratifying. Toe Home and Foreign Mission Boards aro both out of debt. The Suuday*8ohool Board has had the best year lu Its history, and has been able to put aside a couelderable sum iu its reserve fund. Tennesflee has done her part nobly. She has given over (0,000 to Foreign Missions, and about 15,000 to Home Missions, not iuoluding boxes sent to frontier missionaries. We will be entitled to about flfty-flve delegates to the Craventlon on the money basis, besides those who go as representatives of their Associations. This is certainly flue. Let us slug, "Praise God from whom all blessings flow." jljljl The MethodiHt Geuerel Conference at its session in Chicago has several important qaestlons before it. Among them the question of abolishing the title of bishop, aud substituting the word superintendent, 80 as to discard the doctrine of prelacy. Another question Is lu regard to limiting the tenure of oflice of a bishop to eight years instead of a life term as at present, aud providing that by a two-thirds vote the elders of a Cunferenoe may veto the action of the bishop. The question of whether women shall be ordained to the ministry Is also likely to come up for discussion. These, added to the dancing question, are apt to make things pretty lively, hi ths Confereuoe. The Northern Anniversaries will be held at Detroitr,Mioh., May 21at-29th.

I have soon tho children, referring to his two grandchildren who died last year. Tho family was hastily summoned, and as thoy gathered about his bed, he said: *No pain! No valley! Is this death? This isnt bad; it Isswoet; this Is bliss. Later he said, This Is my coronation day, and I have beon looking forward to it for years. Mrs. Moody seemed on the point of breaking down, and he said to her: *Mamma, you wore always afraid of sudden HurprlBes. Brace yourself. Ho told his daughter, Mrs. Fitt, that he was going,, and whiin she/iaid they could not spare him, he answered, simply, "God calls. He was conscious almost to the last.

If you ate privusged to know her, you will not doubt the good einots of Incorporating Bible verses In a childs up-brlnglng. I believe that much of the loveliness and strength of her own character, and her chlldirehs -- after her, have come from the truths so early Impressed upon her mind. As I have so often said, there Is uo age Ihie lu the Young South. We welcome the grown-up people as well as the youngest to our "Bible Learners," and we especially thank Mrs. Harris for her example. Are there not other mothers and grandmothers who will study with their children and grandchildren, the beautiful Scripture portions we give from week to week? Let us hear from more of these.

Are you not glad that our $1,000 and more swelled these receipts and helped to make such a glorious report possible? To Uod be the glory! But bear In mind this "little comer" must never grow dark.

My class in Buu> day-school will recite from the one on Japan next Sunday, this bcmg the Sunday devoted to missions by the school. Information about our tlelds Is so valuable and so much needed.

J. H. Whitiook of Alexandria is lu the city this week preaching at the Seventh Baptist Church. He la said to be an excellent preacher. We found him quite a clever man. In telling of the flfth Sunday meeting at Mt. Morlah Church last week, we failed (o make mention of two excellent essaya read by MIsaee Ella Prewltt and Mamie Powell. They were quite interesting. There have been more than 150 additions to the First BaptUt Church, Waco, Texas, elnce the present pastor. Dr. A. W. McGaha, took charge six months ago. The church has now more than 1,000 membei The caulogue of Bethel College at KusBelvllle, Ky., for I890-1!XI0 shows an enrollment of 03 students. Under the etllcleut presidency of Dr. E. S.

Clark relurus to Kansas and becomes Secretary of Kansas Baptt Publishiug Company, as associate with Editor O. L- Halley." This will be news to our Arkansas brethren. The catalogue of Wake Forest College for , just published, shows TOstudentsat theiustltution last year from seven dllterent States. The large majority of them, of cnurcie, were from North Carolina. This is certainly a good showing. An Interesting entertainment was given by the pupils in elocution of Miss MIttase Pansy Holt at Boscobel CTollege on last Friday night. The young ladies acquitted themselves with much credit both to themselves and to their teacher. -Miss Laura Haygood, sister of Bishop A. U. Haygood of the M. E. Church, South, died In Shanghai, China, last week. She had been principal of the McTyeire School In Shanghai since 1884, which position she flllod with great ability and falthflilness. What lady In Nashville who has a baby buggy that has been out-grown will give it to Carey Fox, the 11- months-old baby at the Orphans Home? The matron says she wants him to be a missionary, and in order to do so she wants a buggy to take him to church. The General Conference of the M. E. Church, North, which meets every four years, Is now In session at Chicago. One of the chief questions before It is as to whether the clauw In their discipline forbidding dancing and other simlllar amusements shall be abolished. A lively fight Is expected upon the subject. We learn with much regret of the recent death at his home In Chattanooga of Bro. H. N. Darling. He was an onicer In the United States Army with headquarters in Nashville, and was a cultured and consecrated Christian gentleman. We counted him among our warm friends. We extend deep sympathy to his family. The Baptist ChronMe states that Hon. W. W. Heard, who was elected Governor of Louisiana on April 17th with over,000 majority. Is a Baptist, and "not only a man of aplendld executive ability and thoroughly competant to flit any position In the gift of hia people, but a oonament Olurlstala geo. tlwnan, and a inao who will Kflact credit on hia own Baptlat brotherhood In BO exalted a poaltlon aa wall as ID the hamhler aarrloes of hia ohuroh, which ha ao humbly performa."

We ate glad to know that the wife of Bro. W. D. Powell, of Chattanooga, who was given up to die In January, has recovered sufllcuntly to be able to attend church. Bro. Pjwell writes that the "work at the Central Church Is moving on nicely under the enthusiastic leadership of Bro. Frlstoe. While he Is a busy worker, he Is full ol sympathy and his people are devoted to him." The ScarcMight and Gltaner of Dyersburg announces that it has secured the services of Rev. E. T. Thome of Woodvllle, Tenn., as Held editor and general solicitor. Bro. Thome Is a most excellent man. We congratulate Bro. Whitten upon securing him for the position. In connection with the Searchlight and Gleaner he Is authorixed to represent the BAPTIST AMI RSKLKCTOR. Dr. W. W. Landrnm of Atlanta has declined the call of the First Baptist Church, Boston, Mass. Speaking of his decision, the Atlanta Constitution said editorially: "In declining to accept the call of the First Baptist Church of Boatou, Mass, Dr. W. W. Landrum has deeply gratified, not only the members of the Flrat Baptist Church of Atlanta, but likewise the entira religious community of Georgia, regardless of denominational lines." Rev. Rutherford Brett of Huntsvllle, Ala, had accepted an invitation to preach the commencement sermon for the State School at Albertovllle, Ala., ou the second Sunday In May, but his church has ordered him to attend the Southern Baptist Convention at that time, and he has decided to obey otders. Rev. B. McNatt of Wa trace,. Tenn., will preach the commencement sermon In his place which means that It will be well done. -Rev. 8. H. Price and Dr. R. D. Crutcher of Lewlsburg gave us a pleasant call last Monday. Bro. Price was on his way to the Southern Baptist Convention at Hot Springs and Dr. Crutcher was going to Memphis to attend the meeting of the Tennessee Medical Association. The Baptist growth In Lewlsburg Is slow, but It Is graufyhig to know that there Is a growth. This Is due largely to the sound preaching of Bro. Price and the activo help of Dr. Cructher and others. -Rev. T. G. Davis, pastorof the Second Baptist Church, Chattanooga, Tenn., writes: "I closed last night what has proved one of the most gracious revivals I have ever conducted. The Second Church was gitly revived and there were 80 profetslons and 85 additions, with some othen to fallow. Since I came here, Jan. 14,1900, there have been 67 addltlona and the Sundayschool haa been almoat doubled. Our church U too small, and wa will aooa take stepa to enlarge Ita capacity."

It will not be, I am sure, nnlntereatlug to many of your readers to hear news from Boscobel College. The work In this Institution during the present session has gone along quietly, but with much serious earnestness. The enthusiastic work In the dlltetent departments Is yielding very gratifying raeulta. We have as fine a body of students as can be found anywhen, and they evince a magnificent spirit of loyalty to their Institution. We feel highly gratified at the succees thus far attained, and for the enlargement of our prospects for another year. There an plans on foot for the broadening of our llnea which will, within a few years, place Bosoobel at the head of Southern female oollegee. May I mention hera one of the many advantages In this great educational city tor our girls, and pajrtlcularly Baptist girls? I refer to the privilege our Baptist girls have of hearing each Sunday that deep thinker, big hearted (If little bodied), bruiunt, spiritual-minded, gospel preacher, Dr. J. O. Rust, pastor of the Edgefield Church. It has been an Inspiration to m«personally to ait under his able ministry during the past year. He has had the kind of revival I llke-a perpetual outpouring of grace. Some 7ft or 80 additions to the church have taken place since last ftell, almoat entirely at tegular services of the charob.

GRANT.-The first death in our church at Sylvia occurred last Friday afternoon. Bro. W. R. Grant, a most devoted Christian, "passed over the river," leaving a widow and sefen children. His death was caused by galloping consumption. For several days he suflered severely, but never faltered In his calm trust in hid Savior. In November, 189S, I baptized him and his devoted wife Into the fellowship of our church Just organized at Sylvia. They came to us from Ihn Presbyterians, and have been moat excellent members. I feel deeply the loss of BO good a man. I preached his funeral to a large concourse of people from the text-"thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord JesuH Christ." It was a sweetly solemn hour. W. D. TUBNLEY. BHOWN.-Whereas, God In his allwire providence has taken from the ranks of our church.

If yon dont know what it meana at home to be put hito bot water, yon are at liberty now to practice It abroad, lu behalf of tbe 70,000 Baptists In Arkansas, I bid you welcome." At the request of the president. Rev. E. E. Bomar of Virginia responded to this address In a brief and happy manner. Dr. Oscar Haywood of Tennessee, J. W. Bailey of North < Carolina and Rev. A. E. Bums of Alabama were appointed a committee of enrollment. Dr. U. F. Flippo of Philadelphia, Pa., presented In a delightful manner the greetings of a host of Pennsylvania Baptist young people. Dr. H. L. Morehouse of New York was introduced for an address on "Our Baptist Young People and Missions." The address waa of a very high order. He said In part: Tbe massing of Baptist young people baa been tbe phenomenon of tbe nineteenth century. There ate in all about 6,000,000 ycnng people organized lu America for religious work. It la posalble to say of some things that they are many but not much. Often times thereare numbera without weight. A man may have a large family but it may not be numerous family. At one time there waa a husband who was alx feet high, bis wife six fem high and hia daughter about alx and one fourth feet bigh. This was a large but not a numerous family. Baptists are now in the coustruouve period of thebr hlstoiy, aud tbe question they abouid ask Is, What ia the signilicance of thu Young Peoples Movement 7 At first in tbe movement there waa a good deal of effervescence. fiuttbedayofyoutbflaleflrwvesoencela uow going aud tbe aerioua question for each yonng BapUst now to ask.ia, For what cause was I bom? Tbe day of exuberant baunem, muaic, and abontlng among BapUata ia going and we are coming to aeifconsoionaneaa of our power and duty. Tbe great mission of young Baptlata la Obtiatlan Mlaaiona. This mmon ooneapohds with tbe.dealbig of God in hi» tory. It la tbe logio of mimtons. Tbe yonng men have in agea past been leaders In miiaiona. Cangr was a yonng man wben ble heart boined to goto India. Robert Morrison was only twenty-two yeaie old wben be went to Obhia. Adonfaram Jndson, Bobcit Momt, David lavlngrtone and William Aabmore were each young men wben enteru-g upon tbsir n- speotive misaionaiy labors. W«bava a D«W type of Baptlata riaing. There bave bew vatiana typea of Baptista beirrtoltore. Among tbem were tbe AnU- MlMlbnaiy, tbe Omisafcmaiy, Bcgalar, Bifenthifavi Opan Ounmnnlon, Okiae Oommonkm, Six Fttneipta Baptists and laige number of no prindpla BaptMi. JS But a type of Baptlsu is growing who are actuated by principle bi heart. How shall Uils mighty force cf young Baptista be utilized to tbe beet advantage? We ate aware that there Is a great wastage of naturtf and human forces. We must utilize tbe fbioe that la subject to wastage among yonng Baptists, In the matter oif giving and doing. Tbe relation of our young Baptists to missions should be that of vital union with tbe church and its great misaion organlflitiona. The value of tbe young Baptists relation to our organised work la inexpressible. It is a gnat tung to have a bigh ideal. It is a great thing to belong to a body having a bigh collective ideal. Tbe snbiimlty of tbe thought of iiflbig this world to Christ is inspiring and beyond description. Tbe man who goes now to cry money out of peoples pockets doesnt get much. The spbit of conquest bi taking tbe place of aentlmentallty. It was not "remember tbe Maine" that led to tbe war with Bpain, bnt "remember the leconcentradoes." America came to self-oonsclousness in the recent war and you cannot put tbe chicken back into tbe broken shell. The war In Puerto Rioo waa bnt a rough way of preaching tbe gospel. The war was almply a ploughshare of the goei. Our martial aplritia being arouaed to tbe oonqneat of the world for Chriat Tbe question ia not, "What ate Puerto Rioo, Cuba and tbe PbiUpphiee to na?" bnt, "What may we be worth to them?" The grandest vision in tbe Apocalypse was, not the Lamb alain, not the piesentatlon of Christs, suflhring, bnt thai of the heavens opened andthe Klngofkings,fbiIowed by tbennifotmatmy of heaven, marching to victory. Fall in line with tbe conquering Christ for the conquest of the world. At the conclnsion of this capital address Mr. H. A. Wolfsohn of Atlanta, Ga., sweetly sang tbe appropriate hymn, "IU go Where Yon Want Me to Go." Prof. J. R. Bampey, D.D., of LoulavUie, Ky., de. liveted an instmcuve address on the theme, *Our Baptist Yonng People and Education." He said that every babe bom into a Baptist fluniiy ia a potential Baptist. Tbe education of Bapyst yonng people commences at tbe cradle udoes on to tbe end of life. A potenthd yonng Baptist ebould know Gods Woid ftom the mother. Education of children should begin at tbe bottom. The Bible should be enthroned In tbe home ud there sbonid be an effoit to secnte tbe early conversion of tbe potenual Baptist. Wben tbe potential Baptist is converted bis education ought to commence on tliat day and continue to the end of time. Tbe education of Baptlat yonng people onght to center aronnd the Bible in every phiuw of atndy. Ftom foundation to capatone in Bapttot eduntion let evetytbbig center aronnd the Bible. Dr. Bampeys speech was comprehensive and fotceftal. Pifsldent Dawson introduced Dr. E. E. Chiveraof Chicago, Hi., Corresponding Secretary of the Baptlat Yonng Peoples Union of America, who suted that tiie olject of the Yonng Peoples Union waa not destruction to tin local cbutcb, but constmcuon. He affirmed that it was simply a mode of aeuvity to the local church for the accomplishment of its purpose. Tbe Union, adjourned with ptayer by Dr. Chiveri, to meet at 8 p. m. Ttauisday Afternoon.

Armstrong of Missouri greatly cdlfled and Instracted all present with a strong p«p«r. His production waa recdved entbnsiaatloaily. Prof. D. B. Pnrlnton of Dennlson Univetsity, Oiilo, foitowed Dr. Armstrong with a briilhmt paper on tbe topic, "Tbe Functtonof tbe Intellect InBdigion." Tbe paper waa so weighted with striking sdntiibitlons of logic, philosophy and teilglon as to be almost unrepottabie. He pronounced man an animate behig with religion, and aald tbe fact that he has idigion differentbites man ftom other anhnate bdnga. Be* ilgton takes bold of all men and every fiscnityof mm. Evety oonquetbig religion baa addrssped the bead ae wdl as thckbeart. No religion that iores the Intdligence In man can long eonmiand tim reepeetof man. Jesus came to save the lost, and mans Intellect Is as much lost as ids heart; therefora He came to eave it. He came to bear witnees to the truth. Deviation from truth Is Just as depkmbie as deviatton fkom duty. Christ dedared bbiudf Ktog of tbe Thitb,- and truth Is a tung of tbe bitellcot. InteUigeoce is needed, llist, for preserving the fonndatkin of tbe faith; aecondly, for auceeeefbliy propagating tbe prin. dpiea of tbe fdth: and, tbtediy, for canybig forward the constructive aetivily.of futli. An revointton Is dissolvbiif tlm foundations of torical Ikltb. The Intemgatlon point has come to be omnipotent. People are asking all sorts of questions In lellgton. It is now antboridty instead of antben«tidty. Men will iro longer accept tdlglons fldtb for mental Inanity and inertlon. Tbe exctueof llsltb Is not reason; neither is it nnteasonable, bnt It Is the vety foundation of reason. Take away fialth and ail reason Is gone. The Bible Is not designed for wiqrflaring men and fools alone. Tbe upholder of the faith can scarcely know too much. Tbe Cliristian ought to know sometlilng. There Is no piety In Ignorance, Foola bate knowledge. The Anglo-Saxon baa tbe gospd In its purity and its power, tberefoie he ought to propagate It Christianity- is twtb Intenedy Individual and ciiaracteristloally ccamopolitan. Pride prevents propegation of faith. Tbe selfmade man genetaliy wotsbips bis maker. Tbeie is many a man who Is a personal expansionist recard* less of patty or creed. Tbe Anglo-Saxon generally enteitains a comfortable view of bimsdf. A mm may be too prond to bow befon tbe Oroee. Tbete is no virtue in ignorance nor teilglon in mental opaque-. nesa. It is aiwi better to do than to ondo. True Christian Egoism leads to gennine Altmism. Son> ship with God means brotherhood with man.
