"Mr. President and Fellow-Mem-bers of the Alumni Association of Dear Old Alma Mater: Anxious to say some pertinent and constructive word that would give significance, suggestiveness, potency and worthwhileness to this hour, some word that might, perchance, point out to us the way of a larger citizenship, I invoked the Muses in vain to give me this word. Turning empty away from the fair temple in which I first sought inspiration, I put my ear close to the mighty, throbbing world about me, and caught from thence some hint of what my message should be. May I sound its keynote in this phrase: "Education and the New Democracy?" There is one word in my subject which might, perhaps, strike some of you as having, indeed, the flavor of politics about it. However, it shall be my purpose to lift that great wo...

RESOLUTIONS OF RESPECT * The following resolutions of respect adopted by the Arbor Sunday school, of Dan River Association, in memory of Captain William Haymes: Whereas, the angel of sorrow entered our midst at the noonday hour on June 12th and gathered from our fold our beloved friend and co-work-er and shepherd Qf the flock, Captain William Haymes, let us with divine guidance humbly bow to the will of our heavenly Father, as this winter gloom of loss encircles us, realizing that the soul who has been our guide, mainstay, and has watched over us as a father his children, was only loaned to us for threescore years and ten. Qut God, in His wisdom and love, spared him and his usefulness fourscore years and more. In this hour of our gloom God gathers home one needful in our community, and we raise our eyes heavenward and behold in glorious immortality one whose every-day life sweetened and proved a blessing to all with whom it came in contact; therefore, be it Resolved, Ist.

A business enterprise that is unable to meet, in the open markets of the world, any llgltimate competition mustn't bawl and cry if it has to close up its shop. In every realm it is the rule and not the exception that the fit survive. What, then, is the New Social Democracy? Three factors constitute its potency and enfold its prophecy. They aer Reason, Righteousness, Reciprocity, or Tolerance, Truthfulness, Togetherness. How can these ideals De progressively realized? Mark the adverb, "progressively." For we move not toward some static position and finished task. The goal of Social Democracy is the perpetually ana gloriously Great Unfinished. The task grows "with the process of tne suns."

DAN RIVER ASSOCIATION REV. H. G. CREWS, Scottaburg. V*.. Editor. a THE SPIRIT THE ONLY SOURCE OF SUCCESS. The Jews when they set about repairing the broken down walls of their loved city, and when rebuilding the Temple, encountered great difficulties, strong enemies resisted theiT pious work —almost insurmountable obstacles hindered their work. The prospect of success was very gloomy. The prophet Zechariah, to encourage their undertaking wrote down these most cheering words, assuring certain success: "Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit s>atfth 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 strengthen 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. Chris...

MR.' E. K. TUNE AT REST. Another of God's saints has crossed the great Divide and entered the Band Elysiou, in the person of Mr. E. Kester Tune, who departed this life on the morning of July 23rd, 1912. Just as the rising sun in all its beauty and radiance lighted the earth after the night's darkness anu repose, the brightness of a better World broke over his soul, and gently, peacefuly, the angel of death bore his spirit to the Saviour's bosom.

Organ of the Dan Rhrer and Blue Ridge Baptist Associations •si • 31 v" ; ' * •' r * rv*. - VOL. 25. INTRODUCTORY SERMON. By Rev. W. R. Kefe. Preached at the Roanoke Association at Chatham. John IV: 35. "Lift up your eyes and look." A larger and clearer vision is the pressing need, present duty and gracious privilege of our churches. "Where there is no vision the people perish." Exclusive concern about local affairs makes the church near-sighted and weakens its moral influence and spiritual power in its own limited field of work. The trouble begins when the church makes itself the end. She does not exist for her own sake. The church is an agent with large powers and resources, but constantly tempted to use them for herself. Political parties are born of economic needs and aim to realize certain benevolent policies in government. But gradual...

On a whole the work has kept up well for the summer. The pastor has recently been in two meetings, one at Ruffin, N. C., with Bro. Murchison and the other in Madison Co,, Va., with an old schoolmate Bro. Goodwin Frazier. The Lord greatly blessed us in both of these meetings.

CHILDREN A3 CHRISTIANS AND AS CHURCH MEMBERS.. Mrs. Geo. W. McDaniel The most important phase of church work today is the development of child life —none other approaches it in point of value. Long ago educators discovered the transcending importance of the child, and during these years have applied themselves assiduously to the task of its culture and training. One of the most noted teachers of our country said: "Childhood is the arena in which the problems of race development are to be fought out." We are coming, as never berore, to see the meaning of the Master when he took up a little child and said, "Of such is the kingdom of heaven." But pastors and church workers have been slow to realize this truth, and just now are -We awaking to the fact that it is our work, as well as the work of the kindergarten and school, to bring into full realization the latent possibilities of child life. "This is our largest opportunity—to lead the child into the conscious presence of God, and to q...

Jesus' ministry was short and his sermons few, but in them he makes many references to the children. "Whoso receiveth one such little one, receiveth me."

DAN RIVER ASSOCIATION REV. H. G. CREWS. Scottaburg. Vs.. Editor. THE PREACHING WE NEED. The preaching that God gave the apostles to preach is the gospel we need. The gospel is not "of or from man, not in the wisdom of the world, but in the power of God." Much of the preachng of the present day Is not the gospel. The gospel is the good news of God's love and grace to sinful, mined man, but it is more, it is, the revelation of man to himself. It tells him that he is a guilty, condemned sinner justly deserving banishment from the favor of God forever. That he is destitute of any moral- goodness, depressed in heart and life, alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in him, a rebel against Gol, hating God in his heart. That he can do nothing morally good to commend himself to the divine favor—that he is lost. That it is his duty to repent and turn away from his iniquity, and yet he cannot repent unless inclined by the Holy Spirit, and yet as a moral being he is respon...

0 The Woman's Missionary Society Department 0 The Woman's Missionary Union of the Roanoke Association held its annual meeting with the Moffett Memorial Church, Danville, Va., Aug. sixth and seventh. The opening services were conducted by the Rev. G. C, Smith, the courteous pastor of the church. The Associational Superintendent being, Mrs. James Harte of Chatham, was chosen to preside over the meeting. From the many compliments that were paid her, the women considered themselves fortunate in their selection of a presiding officer. The Union was heartily welcomed by Mrs. M. C. Motley. The response was made by Mrs. John Thompson, of Mt. Hermon Church. Through some mistake the reports of the societies had been sent to Richmond and only those delegates who had duplicates could make any report, therefore we fear our financial report this year will not be very correct. The devotional service in the afternoon was conducted by Mrs. Fitzgerald of Mill Creek Church. Mrs. L. O. Kidd told us som...

LITTLE VIRGINIA LEWIS. On the night of Aug. 6, 1912, the death angel,entered*the home of Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Lewis and bore away the soul of their only child, Virginia, aged 16 months. She was sick ten days and all.that tender and loving hands could do was done to keep the precious, little blossom, but God knew best and we feel that for some good purpose she was taken. Many watched anxiously by her side as she lingered with longing hearts and anxious eyes were turned upon the little darling, praying for one bright ray of hope, yet with all the prayers and anxipus , faces the little bud which was tended with such care, plucked from our midst, leaving only the sweet memory of her short bright life. 'Tis hard to know she is gone, that no more we can see her precious face or hear her sweet voice, but ever remember, loved ones, we have a guardian angel in Heaven. She cannot come to us again, but we can go to her, andwhen we think of her there Heaven seems nearer and dearer to us. So We hu...
