Gbe Baptist Clinton. DANVIIXEi VA.. OCT., 1909. REV. J. K. HICKS, - - EDITOR. Danville took a deTHE BOND cided step forward ISSUE when her citizens a few days ago voted a Bond Issue of $lOO,OOO for public improvements. $65,000 of the issue will be used iu paving West Main street; $25,000 will be devoted to the building of a new bridge in the place of the old wooden bridge, and $lO,OOO will be used for paving in North Danville. Nothing could be done that will help Danville so much as the paving of West Main street. It is the principal thoroughfare of the city and the outlet to the Park. The West Main and Mountain View section is rapidly building up; some of the handsomest residences in the city are being erected iu this part of the city. The Baptists were particularly interested in the Bond Issue because the new Roanoke College is to be located on West Main. The College property will be greatly enhanced by the paving of this street. Indeed, it is one of the finest locations for a sch...

DAN RIVER ASSOCIATION REV. B. G. CREWS, Scottsburg, Va., Editor. BAPTISM. It seems, said pastor Aylor, to be a fitting occasion to present some views on the subject of Christian Baptism. As to the importance of baptism two extreme views are taken. Some say it is a mere form, a non-essential, therefore of no great importance anyway. Another holds that it is very essential, essential even to salvation, as necessary as repentance and faith. Baptists believe that both of these views are erroneous. Baptists do not bold to either of these extreme views. Baptism is not a mere form, nor is it a condition of salvation. There is but one thing essential to salvation, and that is the reception by faith of the sacrifice of Christ. His death is the only atonement for sin—the blood of Jesus Christ, His Son, cleanses from sin; His righteousness imputed through faith to the believer is the only ground of justification before God. Baptism is not the putting away of the faith of the flesh, but the ans...

SHE OLDEST AS SO CI AT IO NAI, BAPTIST PAPER IN THE STA TE Organ of tbe Roanoke Baptist Association. VOL. 22. : DAN RIVER ASSOCIATION REV. H. G. CREWS, Scottsburg, Va., Editor. TBUITS OF REPENTANCE. The ministry of John the Baptist, owing partly to his singular appearance clothed in raiment of camel's hair, partly to his habits and partly to his doctrine and the plain nessand faithfulness of his preaching, produced great excitement among the people, and multitudes flocked to hear him. Many embraced his doctrine. The Pharasees and Saducees came to receive baptism, and were baptized in the Jordan. But John repelled them saying, "bring forth fruits, meet for repentance." His demand was for evidence to support their claim for the new ordinance. Repentance is fruitful —it brings forth frait after its kind as the trees, and may be known by its fruits. What are some of the fruits of repentance? The tree is known by its fruits and so is repentance. If genuine repentance has been exercised, ...

The Prospect for New College Brightens—The Baptist Opportunity—The Old College Full The campaign for the new and greater Roanoke College is becoming more and more encouraging. Dauville will give between eighteen and twenty thousand dollars. The churches outside of Danville in the Roanoke and Dan River Associations are responding with liberality. It looks like the whole country round about is getting interested in the new college, and is going to help carry this great enterprise to victory. Among the churches outside of Dauville that have shown their interest and have promised contributions, are Chatham, Kentuck, County Line, Oak Grove in the Roanoke Association, and South Boston and Halifax churches in the Dan River. Indeed, every church that has been visited has promised a subscription. We believe every church in the Associations will want to have a share in the building of this college. Each Church will be visited as speedily as possible. This is the Baptist Opportunity in This Se...

Friday before the fifth Sunday in October touuu nearly all the pastors and several of the laymen of the Blue Uidge Association traveling towards the ivieadows of Dan Church, to attend the Ministers' and Laymen' 3 meeting. This church is located in Patrick county, aoout 18 miles from Stuart. The first session of the meeting was held Friday night. It was my privilege to preach the opening sermon. This was followed by the election of Bro. .1. Fay Reynolds as Moderator and Bro. J. Lee Taylor as Secretary. Both used well-chosen and appreciative words in accepting the positions. The first subject Saturday morning, October 30th, was "The Sunday-school As An Evangelical Force." This subject was ably discussed by Bro. W. B. Haislip. The next topic was the question: Should Belief in and Sympathy With Alissions Be a Test of Fellowship in a Baptist Church." Brother J. Taylor gave a well-prepare...

Improving tKe Quality, Increasing the Quantity of Tobacco Crops The ambition of every tobacco planter is to socure the largest possible crop of the best possible quality—and this is most surely, easily, and quickly accomplished by the use of Virginia-Carolina Fertilizers As a rule the more libei 1 the amount of these fertilizers used per acre,tlie better the results. Mr. John F. Cunningham of Cunningham, N. C., probably one of the iargest tobacco growers in the world, says: " I have been using your fertilizer for twenty years. 1 have sold tobacco made by this fertilizer as high as 90c a lb. Virginia Carolina Fertilizer is used by the best tobacco farmers in the Tobacco States. It stands upon its merits. There is no better fertilizer made or used in the United States. 1 take great pleasure in recommending it not only to the farmers of Virginia and North and South Carolina, but to all the tobacco growers in the Union."

THJg OLDEST ASSOCIATIONAI, BAPTIST PAPER IN THE STATS Organ of tbe Roanoke Baptist Association. VOL. 23. I For thc.Baptist Union I THE OLD AND NEW YEAB. HY MKS. J. A. BARNHARDT. The old year with its pleasure, pain and disappointment, has passed into history; its fond greetings are over; its sad good-byes said, the last tears wiped away, and alas, many of its pages, so fair and spotless a year ago, are now hopelessly blotted and marred. As we glance backward at them, our hearts throb with pensiveness and regret, at the full realization of wasted opportunities, neglected duties and unfinished work. Words, too, have been spoken, which, if they could be retracted, would lighten many a burdened mind, deeds committed, if erased, would gladden sorrowing hearts, and retrospection would prove less painful. The old year also holds memories of separation, deathbeds and sad vacancies in many a home; loved ones have looked the last time on forms, once dear to earth, now silent and cold in death...

DAN RIVER ASSOCIATION REV. H. G. CREWS, Scottaburg, Va., Editor. Catawba. This church did herself proudly at Christmas by sending her pastor, Rev. W. W. Reynolds, a rich box containing dressed fowls, ham, sausage, coffee, sugar, cake, preserves, and other good things. All his churches have manifested their tender sympathy in the late trying and expensive sickness of his family, by contributing sufficient to pay his bills. This is beautiful. Ministers do not receive half the value of their labor, and the churches can well afford to supplement by liberal donations outside of the salary. Let other churches take notice and govern themselves accordingly. H. G. C. *** Ordination. At the call of Black Walnut Baptist Church, a Presbytery consisting of W. W. Reynolds, W. L. Fitcher, J. B. Hill and H. G. Crews, met at the home of Mayfield F. Thompson, January 1, 1910, for the purpose of examining Wm. M. Thompson as to his qualification for the ministry.

DAN RIVER ASSOCIATION REV. H. G. CREWS, Scottsburg, V«., Editor. The Author of Regeneration. In a previous article we said that regeneration or the new birth consisted in giving a new disposition to the mind; the implantation of a principle of holiness. That in its nature it is a great moral, instantaneous and mysterious change wrought by divine power in the | human soul. In this article the subiect is: The Author of Regeneration. Who is the author, or efficient cause of this great moral change? We answer: The Holy Spirit of God is the efficient cause of a sinners believing in Jesus Christ or of the regeneration of the soul. Regeneration being a new turn or bias of the mind, from the hatred to the love of God, from the love and practice of sin, to the love and practice of holiness, can be effected only by the Almighty power of the Spirit of God operating in his sovereign influence on the mind of men. To this agency the Scriptures plainly ascribe the renewing of the mind. "Not by wor...

ZTbc Baptist Ulnion. DANVILLE, VA., JUNE, 1910. I For The Baptist Union.J Uhe Christian's High Privilege and Responsibility. J. W. H. DYCHKS. Th. I) Philippians 2:14-16: "Do all things without murmurings and questionings: that ye may become blatneles and harmless children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom ye are seen as lights in the world, holding forth the word of life." (American Revised Version). From his prison in Rome, where he is in chains for Christ's sake, Paul addresses this letter of love to the little church at Philippi, which he himself established, the first on European soil. In it there is no word of censure or rebuke for this noble band of christians. He does not offer the words of exhortation because he has heard of dissensions among them. He simply wishes to urge them to continue the course of peace and love among themselves which they are now pursuing. "Do all things," he says —in the church and out of it —"withou...

'' Wait on the Lord and be of good courage and He shall strengthen thine heart; wait, I say, on the Lord." This beautiful admonition is linked with a promise. We are admonished to be of good courage as well as to wait, and we art promised strength. We must wait God's time; He, in His wisdom, often works slowly. In our dark hours of trial we sometimes wonder why these things press so heavily upon us; why does an Allwise Father who loves us, permit such things? For the time being His face seems hidden from us? The Psalmist of old said, "Is His mercy clean gone forever?" For such troubled hearts, God's light shines through the rifted clouds. "Be still and know that I am God." "Wait on the Lord," H...

Übe Baptist TUnion. DANVILLE, VA., JULY, 1910. Munford's Death Causes Comment. Richmond, Va., June 25, 1910. (Special.)— The current issue of the New York Survey, which contains a tribute to the late Beverley B. Munford, of this city, is creating much comment in Richmond and may lead the State Board of Medical Examination to introduce a strict practical examination in physical diagnosis as a part of the medical requirements of the State. In the course of a most feeling account of what Mr. Munford did for charitable work in Virginia, the Survey says- "Mr. Munford was in some measure a victim of that delayed diagnosis of tuberculosis so much more common several years ago than today." When this statement was shown to the Executive Secretary of the State Anti-Tuberculosis Association today, he discussed it freely and gave out the following statement: "Our Association is not especially familiar with Mr. Munford's case and of course cannot say that his death might have been prevented had ...

SOME FUNDAMENTALS. All wealth comes from God and belongs to God. The earth and its fullness is His. Every good gift comes from above. The ability to make money is as divine as the ability to preach. To make a dollar with this in mind is as sacred as a prayer. God intrusts us with wealth for a specific purpose, and He has the right to withdraw it at any time. . He expects us to use it as He designates and to pay interest on it while we use it. To withhold it is to rob Him. Wherein have we robbed Him? In tythes and offerings.
