jprom tbe Gburcbes FIRST CHURCH NOTES The flower Cantata given by the primary department of the Sunday School was a great success in every way. The children did remarkably well and those who trained them deserve much credit. The children decided that they wanted to make the first contdibution to the building fund of the new Sunday School room, and they realized $47.00 from this entertainment. We have one of the best Primary departmnts in the South. The Efficiency Committee is doing fine work. They are going about their tasks with earnestness and intelligence. We shall have more men to use in our churches when we use more men. The first baseball game of the season played by the Sunday School League resulted in a victory for our School over Mount Vernon Methodist by a score of ten to six. The Religious Herald reports that three of our Junior Societies gave the largest contributions to missions last quarter given in Virginia: Y. W. A. $120.65, Jr. Y. W. A. $41.75 Royal Ambassadors $37....

HE HOLDS THE KEY He holds the key of all unknown, And I am glad. If other hand should hold the key, Or if he trusted it to me, I might be sad. What if tomorrows cars were here, Without its rest? I'd rather he unlocked the day, And, as the hours swing open, say, "My will is best." The very dimness of my sight Makes me secure; For, groping in my misty way, I feel his hand; I near him say, "My help is sure." I cannot read his future plans, But this I know: I have the smiling of his face, And all the refuge of his grace, While here below. Enough; this covers all my wants, And so I rest, For what I cannot he can see, And in his care I safe shall be, Forever blest. —Maltbie D. Babcock. NEED WE BE BARRIERS? To resist Christ's complete mystery of our own life is to hinder his mastery of other lives. We Christians wonder sometimes why people around us are so slow to see the beauty of our Lord Jesus, and the riches of the gospel that is offered to them in him. Have we glimpsed the difficulty ...

TEMPERANCE COLUMN Contributed by ROBERTS MEMORIAL W. C. T. U. THE VIRGINIA SALOON MUST GO By Rev. C. J. D. Parker The legalized liquor business is the greatest evil and menace of Virginia and the Old Dominion has become thoroughly conscious of the need of its overthrow, and rather ashamed of the reproach that is being cast by the sister states of Tennessee, North Carolina and West Virginia, who together proclaim that Virginia's attitude is the greatest hindrance to the maintenance of thir prohibition laws. The glad hour long prayed for and looked for in Virginia nas struck and everywhere is heard the utterance, the Saloon must go. And to this end there is much encouragement for out of 100 counties in Virginia, 75 are already dry, more than half of the cities are without saloons, and 155 out of 175 towns are dry. 1. The women of Virginia say the saloon must go—and when women say MUST, whether it is go, come or stay, there is something doing. They say the saloon has preyed on the home...

jfrom the Churches FIRST CHURCH NOTES We have changed our custom of observing the Lord's Supper, from a monthly to a quarterly observance. Will make a special service of it Sunday afternoon at 5 o'clock. We believe this change will mean much toward giving the Communion Service a new dignity and impressiveness. We are glad to have Bro. J. M. Thomas back with us after a serious operation at Saint Luke's Hospital in Richmond. He is one of the best beloved men in Danville, and we are glad that he is recovering his health. Many of our people will be away for the summer. Our Sunday School attendance is keeping up well, better than ever before during the summer months. We are averaging over three hundred each Sunday.

. .Read by Miss Elsie Cox, before the Moffett Memorial Sunday School and requested for publication in the Baptist Union. THE CIGARETTE EVIL Of aH the forms in which tobacco is used, cigarettes are the most harmful. Their use is increasing at an alarming rate each year. In 1912, the American people smoked thirteen billion, three hundred million cigarettes. What is to be done to check this evil and save the young men of our land ? The Anti-Cigarette League of Amer ica is conducting its fight against it on the basis that this vice comes under the head of drug habit. Cigarettes appeal to youth because they look so innocent. The smoke is lighter than that of a pipe or cigar, making it easy to inhale. The greatest harm comes from inhaling. The cigarette was once condemned because of the nicotine. Although nicotine is a powerful drug, it has been found that there are other poisons given off in the burning of the cigarette tobacco, which makes nicotine almost harmless in comparison. "Paper ...

TEMPERANCE COLUMN Contributed by ROBERTS MEMORIAL W. C. T. U. Do we realize that the election is only two months off? What have we been doing and what are we now doing to helj> rid Virginia of the saloon and its evils? Will not each pastor and church member ask himself this question, also ask God to show him just what work he can do, and then go and do it? It is conceded that if all the church members of Virginia would vote for righteouness on Sept. 22nd, the victory could easily be won Then why this indifference on the part of the pastors, deacons and church members ? It is all right, as far as it goes, to go to the Association and pass resolutions to be recorded in the minutes of the Association, denouncing the liquor traffic and favoring Statewide prohibition, but that is not enough. That should be preceded and followed by work, worrc, untiring work. The whiskey people are at work and spending money like water, but when the church is aroused and the temperance forces a...

DAN RIVER ASSOCIATION Rev. H. G, CREWS, Scottsburtf, Va., Editor SELF EXAMINATION We have a serious exhortation in 2 Cor. 13:5, to prove to ourselves that we are real There is a counterfeit religion as well as a true one. The apostle calls on the Corinthians to prove themselves, so they might know whether or not Christ had spoken by him, as he had claimed to be the instrument in their conversion. A celebrated divine once said: "Application is the life of preaching, and self application is the life of hearing." The sermons of the apostle were plain and pointed to the heart, and so were his epistles. He did not use plasters to sooth the festering wounds of sin, but the probe to pierce to the depth of hypocrisy and sin. How shall we reduce to practice the apostolic precept. Examine yourselves. To prove a thing is to put it to a test. The mettallest applies the touchstone of heat to purify nis metjals. To prove ourselves is a metaphor taken from trying metals. We must prove ourselves by...

THE STORY OP THE CITY'S UNDERWORLD Henry W. Adams If I were an artist, I would paint a picture of the lost girl, washing Jesus' feet with tears; and with love that could not be restrained, kissing them over and over again. Underneath would be written: "Her sins, which were many, are forgiven." "I am come to seek and to save that which was lost." But I am not an artist, so I will simply tell the story of devoted men and women, who in this great city have given their lives to destroy these fountains of evil and save the lost. A deaconess of the Chicago Midnight Mission, who often visits the resorts of the red light district, says, "Sometimes, to get the attention of the girls, we carry them a pretty picture or some other little token. As you enter you see women sitting around, smoking cigarettes, drinking and cursing, seeming immune to anything uplifting. Your heart is grieved and wounded almost too much for words." Nellie the Minister's Daughter Here is a sad story, which has a silve...
