• DAN'RIVER ASSOCIATION REV. H. G. CREWS, Scollsburg, Va., Editor. Since last repoit there is a famine of news from the Churches. The protracted meetings are over, and we hear of very few additions except from these extra meetings. Our churches barely expect conversions except as a result of special effort. This ought not so to be. The pastor and church under God are the appointed agency for converting souls. Why does not the ordinary ministrations of the word convert men ? The gospel is the power of God unto salvation. Our pastors preach the gospel from Sabbath to Sabbath, from mouth to month. Why are not sinners ever and anon, won to Christ. What is the matter? Has the gospel lost its power? Are the churches not burdened with the care of souls all the time as they are in protracted efforts ? Do the pastors preach as earnestly and directly to the con- science in thei? ordinary ministra- tions ? Do they expect conversions every time they preach the word? Does not the promise,"My wor...

THE OLDEST ASSOCIATIONAIt BAPTIST PAPER IN THE STATE Organ of the Roanoke Baptist Association. VOL. 22. DAN RIVER ASSOCIATION REV. B. G. CREWS, Scottsburg, Va., Editor. New Year's Resolutions. Some people are much given to making new year resolutions o what they sometimes call "turning over a new leaf.'' Now a good resolution may be a good thing to make. When we find ourselves coming short in any line of duty, it may be well, it is well, to mend our way and aim at a higher standard of living. But surely we should not wait for new years day to do this. If today we are not satisfied with our feelings or conduct, we should not be willing to continue a day without amendment. Not only on new year's day, but every day we should resolve to do better. Every day we have faults that ought to be consecrated. Every day temptation meets us; every day, new duties may arise to claim our attention; and wider spheres of usefulness may open before us. Every morning we should resolve to pray more, to ...

Our pastor held a meeting of some ten days with us last fall which was much enjoyed. We had good soul stirring sermons at every service. The church was much revived and about fifteen additions to the church. Brother C'aud Birr, who is a member of our church, rendered valuable assistance in this meeting as he always does. Hardly see bow we could get on without Brother Barr. We had T. Ryland Sanford and bis father with us one day during our meeting, it was iudeeda pleasure to have these brethren with us.

The College has indeed been as a city set upon a hill. It has sent out its light in all directions. No one can estimate the good this old college has done. Its value to the denomination cannot be computed. From its walls there have gone out trained and consecrated young women who have given their service to the church, and without trained young women our Baptist cause in this section could have been what it is today. Roanoke College has been the most potent factor in the progress of our denomination in the Roanoke, Dan River and Blue Ridge Associations. Now since the school has had such an honorable history,how fitting it is that ...

©bituariee. XBS. ANN HAILB7. Died near Acorn, Va., on the fifteenth of January 1909, Mrs. Ann Hailey age 70 years. She had been very feeble for several years. She is survived by three sons and two daughters and many grand children and a host of relatives, who will miss her so much around the fireside. She was a member of the Childrey Baptist church. She united with this church when very young, and loved to attend it's services when ever she could. She was of a cheerful disposition, lending a helping hand when and where she could do good. About one year ago she was confined to her bed for some time, she thought the time had come that she must go to be with her Savior in the mansions he had gone to prepare for His loved ones. Perfectly resigned to the will of God the brittle thread of life was made stronger one more year. Then bade children good-bye, and the Spirit took it's flight to the better world, there to receive the reward promised to the faithful. Peaceful be thy silent slumbe...

BLUE RIDGE ASSOCIATION REV. J. P. McCABE, Marttnavllle, Va., Editor. Martinsville—On the first Sunday in January we began a twelve days revival in our church. Rev. E. E. Dudley, of Norfolk, was our preacher and leader. The weather was against us the first week, but Bro. Dudley's preaching and the efforts of the Christians filled the church with people in spite of the bad weather. Brother Dudley soon won the confidence and co-operation of the other churches of Martinsville. The revival really became a union meeting in which no body's feelings were hurt. The pastors of the Methodist, Presbyterian and Christian churches attended nearly every service and urged their members to attend. By this united effort the entire town was revived and fifty souls were converted. The various churches have received forty-one members from the meeting and will receive the other converts later. The following have been received into full membership in our church since the meeting was begun: Brethren J. N. ...

THE OLDEST ASSOCIATIONAI, BAPTIST PAPER llf THE STATE Organ of the Roanoke Baptist Association. VOL. 22. THE URGENCY OF THE ROANOKE COLLEGE SITUATION. The Virginia Baptists have not completed their campaign for $535,000. They lack $35,000 now, and in addition to this they must raise other money in order to provide against possible shrinkage. The fact, then, that the Education Commission was willing to turn aside for awhile in the interest of Roanoke College, emphasizes both the critical situation of the school, and the great importance of saving and enlarging it. Looking at it from the point of view of the system of schools which the Virginia Baptists are forming —the system would be woefully incomplete with the great section of the State in which Roanoke College is located, left out, and such a gap would result as to make the situation appear (as it undoubtedly would be) abnormal, incomplete and well nigh, if not wholly, inexcusable. For the perfecting and rounding out the system a...
