EDGE CHUROH REVISITED. It was my happy privilege to be with Bro. J. A. Barnhardt again this year in a week's evangelistic services at Edge Baptist church, in Campbell county. The people came in large crowds and listened attentively and reverently to the message of the visiting minister. There were fifteen couvereions, all of whom joined the church and were baptized. It was a gracious meeting. It was with great reluctance that I left this splendid community —one of the very best to be found anywhere. What excellent people these are. Such folks would make a good community anywhere. I have learned to love these Edge people with an ardent affection, and am happy to number them as my perpetual friends. They have been abundantly kind to me, and did the gracious thing to invite me back again next year to...

VIRGINIA HEALTH REPORT Richmond, Va., July 11, 1911. (Special) —The cholera scourge which appears to be firmly seated iu Italy and which has appeared iu quarantine at New York is not viewed with apprehension by the health authorities of the State. The Commonwealth, they declare, would naturally suffer were cholera to seize this country generally, but protection can be secured by observing the same precautions which are being urged in the campaign against typhoid fever. According to health commissioner Wi liams, cholera is spread in much the same manntr as typhoid fever. There are probably a considerable number of "cholera carriers," and there are instances where the disease is spread by contact, but most cases of cholera and practically all the serious outbreaks of the diseases are attributed to insanitary habits and disregard for for the common hygienic precautions. ''lf any community effectually protects itself against typhoid fever," said Dr. Williams, "by the building of sanitar...

TREASURED THINGS. By Mrs. Jno. L. Anderson, (In Memory of My Sweet Child.) Safe in the lower bureau drawer, my treasures lie; None envy me my ownership. Yet [would not I exchange these little hidden things for priceless gem— These are my heart's bright gold and these my diadem. Who, but a loving mother, wants this brown and blue dress, And who but me would value so the silken tress? Oh! Estelle, my sweet little maid, with eyes so brown, You only eleven months have walked the streets of Paradise. But still the little dresses hold fast, my sacred keep And still your fragrant memory fresh, how sweet I know, For in the church-yard, where the trees are budding fast, Is where I saw that lovely little form last. And though that peaceful spot is more than dear to me, A sombre place of vanished hopes it se...

FROM THE CHURCHES FIRST CHURCH NOTES. During the month the following members have been received: Geo. Walker, Gladys Taylor, Edith Comer, and Mr. Pruett. We extent a most cordial welcome to these members in our Church family. We have two very enthusiastic Mission Study Classes taught by Mr. J. F. Parker, and Mrs. Ed Waddill. Both teachers declare that it is a delight to teach such classes. Our Sunday School is still going. We got the banner again for the largest percentage of Church members during March —37 per cent. Our average for the month was 279. Collections over $5O. We have raised the $5O subscribed to the Encampment Building. The Easter exercises in the Sunday School by the Junior Department were much enjoyed, and the credit is due Miss Neta Burkhart and Mrs. Josephine Holcomb for training the children. The Baraca class has the largest average attendance perhaps, in its history.. Walter Waddill, Jr., is the president. The class was named for his father, who taught the Young ...

DAN RIVER ASSOCIATION REV. H. G. CREWS, Scottsburtf, V*.. Editor. PASTORS RESIGNED. We learn with regret thai two of our pastors are leaving us, Bro. W. W. Reynolds leaves Aarons Creek and Catawba, Bro. E. M. Ramsey, pastor at Clover, Fork and Rogers Chapel goes to Northampton county, Eastern shore. It seems a pity that our churches and pastors do not seem content to hold together. Frequent changes are unfriendly to permanent and steady progress. As a rule long pastorates are the best for the churches and pastors. If pastors are what they ought to be and churches what they ought to be the longer they labor together, the greater becomes their mutual efficiency. Even the pastor does not fill the measure of efficiency, the church may so help him that his best powers may be brought out. Any church may make even a weak pastor strong. Pastors should be willing to share difficulties and discouragements with the churches. Some churches, if willing, are not able to pay large salaries, and ma...

BLUE RIDGE ASSOCIATION Rev. J. P. McCABE. Editor. Church work with several of the Blue Ridge churches is moving along quietly and with many others the work is at a standstill. The Association lost one of the most efficient members of its history when Bro. W. T. Henderson left us last November to take charge of a field in Buchanan County. He did a good work in our association, and it was with much regret that his own churches and the association at large had to give him up. We are very glad to write that efficient pastors have been secured for Bro. Henderson's churches. The Bassett Church has gOne into the formation of a new field with the Henry and Mill Creek Churches. Bro. W. L. Naff began his work as pastor of these churches the first of this month. Bro. Naff was at one time pastor of the field of churches that included Rocky Mount and did a good work for these churches, and his new field is delighted at the thought of having Bro. Naff as pastor. The Bassett Church is building a h...

TOO BUSY TOO PRAY. "Some think they are too busy to pray. Are they right or wrong?" A certain senator at Washington, who had gotten into the Senate because of his money rather than because of his brains, was seen one day sitting at his desk, his head in his hands, and apparently lost in thought. A senator behind him. seeing him in this condition, said to a fellow senator: "See, Senator So and So is thinking!" "No," replied the senator addressed, "he is not thinking: he only thinks he is thinking!" It seems to me that the story has an application to those who think they are to busy to pray; it is not the fact that they really think they are,but they only think that they think they are. For no real thinking ever led a sane man to such a conclusion. Are these same persons too busy to eat or sleep? Are they too busy to work 7 Are they too busy to take recreation? Are they too busy to read # the newspapers? Are they too busy to talk with friends? Are they too busy to do a score of things...

JUST A LETTER. Dear Union: Will you please- allow me space in your columns for a few words. I am highly pleased with the neat, becoming appearance of The Union. With this improvement it has risen from good to better. I always look forward to its cheery visits each month as a visit from a dear friend. So much that is helpful and instructive may be gleaned from its pages, that I do not feel as if I could ever do without it. May God's blessings rest on the Editor and publishers in their noble work. May they live long to continue the grand work in the future that they have done in the past. The death of my beloved former pastor, Rev. P. H. Jones, brought sorrow to my heart. I shall ever cherish the memory of his visits to our home and his kind encouraging words to me in my feeble eiiorts to write articles for The Union. He lived to see the ripe fruits of a wellspent life and passed away honored and mourned by all who knew him. May his loved ones be comforted by the assurance of a sweet ...

O HEART OF MINE. (James Whitcomb Riley.) O heart of mine, we shouldn't worry so! What we've missed of calm we couldn't have, you know! What we've met of stormy pain and of sorrow's driving rain, We can better meet again, if it blow! We have err'd in that dark hour we have known, When our tears fell with a shower all alone; Were not shine and showers blent as our gracious Saviour meant? Let us temper our content with His own. For we know not every sorrow can be sad; So, forgeting all the sorrows we have had, Let us fold away our fears, and put by our foolish tears, And through all the coming years just be glad. IN MEMORY OF MRS. LEWIS. On March 15, 1912, the death angel visited the home of Mr. William Lewis and carried away the dear soul of his beloved wife, Mrs. Ann Collie Lewis. She was a member of Kentuck Baptist Church and was a good woman. She Is survived by several children and a husband. She was a good and kind neighbor, mother and wife and all will miss her. Weep not dear lov...

THE BAPTIST UNION. Organ of the Roanoke Baptist Association. 44 ENDEAVORING TO KEEP THE UNITY OF THE SPIRIT."—Eph. IV:3. Organ of the Dan River and Blue Ridge Baptist Associations VOL. 25. THE SABBATH SCHOOL AND CHRISTIAN CITIZENSHIP. The Sabbath School is without doubt an agency fraught with the greatest possibilities for Christian citizenship. In it are the choicest in the land, the mature and the immature, the made citizen and those in the process of making. The great function of the Sabbath School is to teach. And of all its teaching none perhaps needs to be stressed more in this day of social unrest, civil strife and political struggle than the Christian or Bible principles of civil government. That God is the God of nations as well as of men and that nations as such are accountable to Him. That Jesus Christ is the Divinely appointed Ruler of nations and is by them to be recognized and owned as such, and that the will of God revealed through Christ and contained in the Scriptur...

DAN RIVER ASSOCIATION REV. H. G. CREWS. Scottaburg, Vs., Editor. THE SPIRIT THE ONLY SOURCE OF SUCCESS. The Jews, when they set about repairing the broken walls of their loved city, and when rebuilding the temple, encountered great difficulties. Strong enemies resisted their pious work. Almost unsurmountable obstacles hindered the work. The prospect of success was very gloomy. The prophet Zecharia, to encourage their undertaking, wrote down these most cheering words, assuring certain success: "Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit saith the Lord." (Zech. 4: 6.) Your success is certain, because the Holy Spirit of the Lord is working on your side. We, as Christians, are building a spiritual temple, trying to strenghten the walls of the Christian Jerusalem, strengthening Christ's church. The sentiment of our scripture is applicable to Christian workers. It is most cheering to know that the cause of Christ does not depend on human might or power. Christ's cause is the building up...
