FROM THE CHURCHES FIRST CHURCH NOTES- Ths year just closed has been probably the best in the ten years of the present pastorate- The Church raised for all purposes this year around ten thousand dollars- There were 54 additions during the year, some fine material. The societies did the best work in their history, raising ovsr §llOO for missions. The Missionary Society gave over $6OO, the largest amount ever raised- The Y W. A'sgave nearly $3OO, the Sunbeams over $6O, the Royal Ambassadors $175, and the Juniors over $3O- All of these societies reached high water mark, not only in point of contributions, but in intallectual interest as well- More of our members are interested in the work of the church than ever before- Our hearts go out in deepest sympathy to Mr. nnd Mrs. L. B. Conway in th.3 sad affliction that has come to them in the death of therr little boy. Bro. P. B. Law, one of the oldest members of our church, was seriously injured by an accident on the Southern Railroad a few ...

SOME REASONS WHY SOME MINISTERS FAIL. By Prof- A- T- Robertson, D. DAs a rule, ministers do not fail, but certainly some do- Why? 1- Because they do not love their work. 2- Because they do not work at their task with persistence. 3- Because they do not have adequate collegiate training4. Because they do not have theological training5. Because they do not buy the right sort of books. 6. Because they do not maintain habits of study- 7. Because they do not know how to meet modern problems8. Because they do not press the mission cause. 9- Because they do not grip the men and boys for Christ- 10. Because they do not relate the Bible to the life of the people. 11- Because they neglect their own spiritual life- 12. Because they do not use enough common sense in dealing with men. No educational institution can undertake to furnish either common or uncommon sense to students- The thieological seminary, however, is peculiarly adapted to the task of enabling men to relate themselves to the gre...

Organ of the Dan River and Blue Ridge Baptist Assoiciations •.''TS4'"'IV fi / VOL. 26. A DREAM. I have read of one who dreamed a dream, when in great distress of mind about religion. He thought he stood in the outet court of heaven, and he saw a glorious host marching up, singing sweet hymns aud bearing the banners of victory, and they passed by him, through the gate, and when they vanished he heard th the distance sweet strains of music. "Who are they?" he asked. "They are the goodly fellowship of the prophets, who have gone to be with God." And he heard a deep sigh as he said, "Alas! I am not one of them, and never shall be. I cannot enter there." By and by there came another band, equally lovely in appearance, and equally triumphant, and robed in white. They passed within the portals, and again were shouts of welcome heard from within. "Who are they?" he asked. ...

MRS. MARY B. ANDERSON In the passing away at her home at Spring Garden, Aug. 20, 1913, of Mrs. Mary B. Anderson, the last of five lovely sisters are gone. Mrs. Miller, Mrs. Terry, Mrs. Anderson, Miss Lizzie Vaden, Miss Ellen Vaden, daughters of the late Giles and Dollie Vaden. Their devotion to each oth§r was beautiful. All members of rthe Baptist Church, liberal and consecrated in their lives to the cause they professed, and when their health permitted they loved to go to the house of God. Many of us remember the many happy visits to "Monta Vista" the home near Shockoe of three sisters, Mrs. Terry, Miss Lizzie Vaden and Miss Ellen Vaden. The pastors of Shockoe Church loved to visit that pious home. Kindred, neighbors and friends all received a welcome there. The beautiful flowers, and nice fruit, were enjoyed by visitors. In the fall of 1897, they moved to Chatham. Miss Ellen died soon after they went there. Mrs. Terry died in Aug. 1910, in Chatham and Miss Lizzie died in the Sprin...

THE BAPTIST UNION Organ of Roanoke Bapt. Association. "ENDEAVORING TO KEEP THE UNITY OF THE SPIRIT"—Eph. IV:3 Organ of Dan River and Blue Ridge Bapt. Associations VOL. 27. THE STEWARDSHIP OF MONEY. By R. S. Barbour. Being an address delivered at the Baptist Laymen's Convention. —Religious Herald. This includes those of small as well as those of large means. God has not •denied to the small giver the privilege, pleasure and profit of having a part financially in the progress of the kingdom. "Upon the first day of the week let each of you lay by him in store," etc., is the language of Paul. This includes all, both large and small givers. Nevertheless, I shall address my remarks mainly to men of large means. The possession of wealth gives us a position of power. The abuse of power is wicked and great injustice is often perpetrated . thereby. Moneypower is a good thing in the hands of godly men, but dangerous in the hands of the wicked. "Increasing wealth will only prove the means of de...

TEMPERANCE COLUMN Contributed by ROBERTS MEMORIAL W. C. T. U. PROHIBITION IN NO, CAROLINA Whil the enabling act was being discussed on floor of House of Delegates of Virginia, one of the members of that body dwelt at length upon the con ditions in prohibition states, claiming that the law did not prohibit the selling of liquor (as if the liquor forces wanted it to) and emphasized the amount of money North Carolina was losing and Virginia gaining because of the money sent to this state for liquor. Strange that some people seem to be proud of this money coming to our state when it is in reality a disgrace that we strive to break down the effect of the law of our neighboring state. An article recently appeared in the Richmond Virginian, reproduced from the Times-Dispatch, from R. C. Wright, of Charlotte, North Carolina, This article has been written in response to one of the many articles published on failure of prohibition in Carolina. Mr. Wright quoted Chief Justice Clark as authorit...

DAN RIVER ASSOCIATION Rev. H. G, CREWS, Scottsburg. Va., Editor DAN RIVER ASSOCIATION The affairs of the kingdom in our section seem to be moving on hopefully. The pastors have been at their posts during the winter and a good congregation has attended the church Some of our Laymen brethren, Dr. Beckell and J. T.. Lacy have been active in attending neighboring churches in the interest of the Laymen movement. The Sunday Schools have kept up well. The South Boston Church has been holding revival services but we are not informed as to its rsults. Black Walnut and Aaron's Creek are doing well under the leadership of Brother J. W . Wildman. —H.

WOMAN'S MISSIONARY SOCIETY DEPARTMENT ROANOKE SOCIETIES By MISS LIZZIE WOOD Associational Superintendent Danville, Va. To the Societies of Roanoke Aso., Dear Sisters: How many, many times at our annual association meeting do we hear some one say "Oh, I do wish every member of my society could have heard that talk." Have you noticed that from year to year you see about the same faces at these meetings and you wish and long to get others interested. Those who attend the meetings realize what an inspiration it is to be there and how we go back home with a quickened zeal and a broader vision. Since many cannot go to the meetings, what do you think of carrying the meetings to them? I would that every society in the Association might have the priviege of entertaining this body. I know how we feel about its meeting with the country churches, particularly if they are not on the railroad; but they are for the very societies that need it, for they have fewer opportunities of coming in contact...
