Hbe Baptist THnion DANVILLE, VA., MAR., 1903. THE ISSUE BEFORE US. One of the encouraging features about christian work at the present time is the wave of temperance sen - timent that is sweeping over the South. The phenomenon is little short of remarkable. Back of this wave is power, and the power is in the arousing of the moral sense of the people, who have been so long accustomed to the presence of the saloon evil, as to think it was well nigh indispensable, and almost irremediable, but who are now delighting in the idea of rum emancipation. This power has made itself felt in North Carolina by the passing of the Watt's Bill which is a very satisfactory temperance measure; and in Tennessee by the enactment of a four-mile law which will remove the saloon from towns and counties which choose to adopt it. Kentucky, even, is lining up for a strong fight, and Mississippi is contemplating State prohibition. In Virginia we are coming, and, underpressure of public opinion, our legislators...

XEbc Baptist Tttnfon. DANVILLE, VA., MAR., 1903. "Off to the Land of Flowers." On Monday, February 9th, your correspondent, representing The Bapti&t Union, left Danville for Richmond to join the Virginia Press Association in a trip to Florida tendered them by the Seaboard Air Line through their affable District Passenger Agent, Mr. Z. P. Smith. Through the courtesy of the Southern Railroad, [of which same courtesy we have had abundant proof in time past] your correspondent reached Richmond in time to look about our Capital city and enjoy the hospitality of the Times-Dispatch, extended through our esteemed former townsman, Mr. W. S. Copeland, president of the Virginia Press Association. Many thanks are due Mr. Copeland for his skilful management and thoughtful hospitality. Through his kindness we had only to supply ourselves with tickets and the necesary information at the Times - Dispatch office. The Virginia Press Association numbered about sixty members and their wives...

Gbe Baptist THnicm. DANVILLE, VA., MAR., 1903. RELIGIOUS TRAINING. While in Florida, we had the pleasure of hearing Bishop A. Coke Smith preach on the subject of "Religious Training." We were so much impressed with his eloquence and the truthfulness of his remarks that we concluded to give our readers a synopsis of it, which is copied from the Times-Union Citizen, of Jacksonville, Fla. Text: "Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it." Proverbs xxii:6. The general drift of his sermon was that there was too little attention paid to religious training in the public schools, and that the religious colleges and schools must take up the work of Christian train - ing and continue it to the end. In this connection he asserted that it was an unfortunate fact that because of denominational jealousies, which operated to the exclusion of religious men at the head of our schools and colleges, there were placed at the head of all of the edu - cationa...

tlbe Baptist 'Onion. DANVILLE, VA., AUG. 1903. REV. J. E. HICKS, - - EDITOR. THE POWER OF CHRISTIAN LIVING. This is a practical age. Men today are testing the realities of life not by theoretical, but by practical proofs. Thus religion is being put to the practical test. Today, as never before, men are asking whether there is any practical value in Chrstianity when applied to the universal interests of life. They want to know whether the teachings of Jesus can be made the guiding moral principle in all spheres of human activity. Can a man be a Christian and a successful business man at the same time? After all is not Christianity a mere theory? Are not its ideals only the dreams of fanatics? Has it any real power to help men to resist temptation and overcome sin? Can it give to one the spirit of patience and courage under the misfortunes, discouragements and reverses of life? Can Christianity become a potent factor in our modern social, political and commercial world? These are some...

Zbe Baptist TUnfon DANVILLE, VA., AUG. 1903. At the recent General Assembly of the United Free Church of Scotland, the remarkable blessing attending the recent mission of Dr. Torrey and Mr. Alexander was noted as follows in the committee's report on the home work of the church. "This general movement within the church has been greatly helped and drawn out into fuller expression by the remarkable missions carried on by Dr. Torrey and his colleague, Mr. Alexander, during February, March and April, in Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Aberdeen. It is generally agreed that, fur both depth and width of impression upon Christian people and the unconverted, there have been 110 such missions since the first memorable visit to Scotland of Messrs. Moody and Sankey." The Art department of Roanoke Female College is one of the best in the State. Miss Reid is a very sup rior teacher and will have one of the largest classes the department has ever hud. Have You Paid Up? We have received payments from the fo...

XEbe Baptist TKnlon. DANVILLE. VA., SEP., 1903. REV. J. K. HICKS, - - EDITOR. RELIGIOUS TRAINING OF THE YOUNG. There is no more interesting and significant narrative in the Old Testament than that which tells the simple and beautiful story of the youthful Samuel's call to be the prophet of Israel. The most strik - ing thing about Samuel's call is, that one so young should have had such an experience. Let us see if we can't find out the secret of an experience so mature in a mere child's heart. Samuel had a good mother who had dedicated him from his infancy to the service of God, and who took a supreme interest in his religious training. Owing to this religious training which Samuel had received, his young heart had not been hardened by sin, and, as a result, it was sensitive to the voice of God. When the realities of life began to break in upon his growing consciousness, as it emerged from the vague and meaningless experiences of earlier years, the first reality that impressed itsel...

XLbc Baptist Wnfon A SERMON IN VERSE. BY REV. H. PETTY. "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life " John 14:6. How helpless man by nature is, Left to himself alone, Afar from all that's good and pure, To evil only proue. This evil, left unchecked, will grow Stronger from day to day, Until like Esau, one becomes, A wretched castaway. Repentance, if it comes at all, May come alas! too late, The ear of mercy may be closed, And also heaven's gate. No power on earth can ever make Man's soul alive to God, One remedy alone is found, 'Tis Jesus' precious blood. This ever blessed, healing balm, Is now by faith applied, To all who penitently come, To Christ the crucified. 'Tis this that calms the soul's unrest, And gives it peace within, 'Tis this that makes one truly blest, And cancels every sin. This remedy for sin was given, As soon as Adam fell, It was announced by God e'en then, Most wonderful to tell. Its power has been felt e'er since The gates of Eden closed, Abel and Enoch by it touched...

Cbc Baptist "Qnion. DANVILLE. VA., NOV., 1903. REV. J. E. HICKS, - - EDITOR. USELESS ANXIETY. One of the most striking features of Jesus' character was His practical way of looking at things. He saw everything from the practical point of view. He did not live in the clouds, but on the earth. His supreme interest was not in the dreamy past, or the vague uncertain future, but in the real, living present. He laid hold of present realities with all the energy of His being, and sought to transform these realities into power for the future. He took life as it came, met nobly and cheerfully each day's duties and responsibilities; was never behind in His work, and consequently always ready for new duties and responsibilities. This practical way that Jesus had of seeing and doing things shows His profound insight into human life. Because he knew himself he knew humanity. He went deep down into His own experience and brought forth the eternal truth about life. He taught men what the true life...

Übe Baptist Ulnion was manifest in great power. To God belongs all the glory for the gracious manifestation of His Spirit in our midst. The singing was especially good, due in a large measure to our good organist who was so unselfish and untiring in her devotion to duty. There were about thirty conversions, with twen - ty-seven additions to the church; twenty-four baptisms and three restored. Among those who joined are some of our Sunday-school scholars. They need our special care and encouragement. The work of the church does not end with their conversion. They have entered upon the Christian life and must be strengthened and helped in the practice of Christian living. May the benediction of grace rest upon each one of these young Christians, and guide them in all their ways. , My best wishes for Thh Union and its many readers.

Zbe Baptist TOnfon. DANVILLE. VA., JAN., 1904. KSV. J. B. HICKS, • - EDITOR. WHAT THE NEW TEAR SHOULD ■EAN TO US. We are at the beginning of a new year. We ahould seek to get out of this year all that God puts into it for us. We can beat do this by filling it full of service for God and for humanity. The only path to God is the path of duty and service. The only condition upon which God will give us His blessing is that we •hall be willing to use this blessing for His glory. No doubt some of us have been disappointed in our religious life during the past year. Our religion, in- stead of leading us into the green pastures ond beside the still waters, has left us to hunger and thirst in the barren and parched desert. Religion has not brought the blessing we expected it to bring. Where does the fault lie, with us or with God? Certainly not with God. Then it must lie with ourselves. Oftentimes our lives are too small and our hearts too selfish to contain or use the blessing which we exp...

Gorresponbence. 401 Rikviur, Wash., Jan. 5, 1904. Dbar Union: It has been quite a while since you have heard from me, but your columns have been a source of pleasure every month. I have read with much pleasure the letters from different churches around and about my old country. I wish 1 could see more of them written from the Keutuck people —it would appear so much like home. There was one written by J. R. Evans on "Old Time Revivals" I enjoyed very much. Let us have another such talk and some of the old time preaching. I was told before I came to this country that it was full of infidels, and I have found out what has made so many of them here and elsewhere. I have asked good many why they did not go to church aud why they had such a prejudice against the church people. The answer is generally, they had become disgusted at the way church people do, and the preachers are always too ready to be roasting some other preacher and denomination instead ot preaching true religion. I cannot...
