Baptist XHnfon DANVILLE, VA., SEPT., 1914 REV. J. E. HICKS, D. D. - -Editor E. R. WADDILL - Associate Editor Association Editors: Rev. H. G. Crews, Scottsburg, Va. Rev. J. P. McCabe, Martinsville, Va. Rev. T. R. Sanford, Chatham, Va. THE MORAL MEANING OF MY VOTE Extract of Sermon preached by J. E. Hicks, Sunday Night, September 13th. Text, Second Kings 10:15, "Is thy heart right, as my heart is, with thy heart?" And Jehonadab answered, It is. If it be, give me thy hand. And he gave him his hand. And he took him up into the chariot." We have in this incident the striking spectacle of the politician and preacher coming together on a common platform. Their hearts are fused in one purpose, and they shake hands over a mutual task. Jehu was a politician and Jehonadab was the preacher. Jehu was the soldier Jehonadab the Priest. Jehu's particular sphere of activities was the State. Jehonadab's throne of influence was the church. Each man put the accent of his life in his own particular sphe...

WOMAN'S MISSIONARY SOCIETY DEPARTMENT Riceville Church entertained the third quarterly meeting of the year July 29th, 1914. Delegates from five Societies were in attendance, some of whom could not have gone but for the kindness of the brethren. The following subjects were discussed, "Why our society fails to interest all Christian women," Mrs. J. E. Neal, of Danville. "The objects of our Society," Mrs. L. R. Blair, of Mill Creek." "Needs and work of different Boards," the writer. "Am I my brother's keeper," Miss Kathryn Fitzgerald, of Gretna. Sweet solos by Mrs. John McDowell, of County Line, and Miss Christine Wooding, of Gretna, and a recitation by Miss Kate Neal of Shockoe were greatly enjoyed. The ladies of the church served a delicious dinner, bountiful enough for two or three times the number present. May I urge upon our women the benefits to be gotten from these meetings for our local Societies, and also the days of pleasure of a day's outing and meeting with others intereste...

TEMPERANCE COLUMN Contributed by ROBERTS MEMORIAL W. C. T. U. The Equator is an imaginary line—but they could not teach Geography without it. You do not see the corporate line around the city, but it makes a lot of difference in your taxes. The path of the giant liner across the "trackless deep" is not a thing the human eye can gaze upon, and yet it must be adhered to with strictest viligence, by compass and chart, through weary nights and white, heat blinding days. Not all the things we recognize as real and vital can be seen with the eye or touched by the groping fingers of man. The biggest things in this world are unseen and unsuspected. That is the way with the "fence" You do not see it; you do "not realize that it is real; you would deny vehemently that you are at this moment seated at its topmost rail, undecided as to your next step. You think you are a man of decision and principle; you are a churchman and you try to be a patriot. And yet the fence is there—an im- DRY Here is...

jffrom tbe Cburcbes WINN'S CREEK Your paper is a welcome visitor in my home. I enjoy the sermons. I am an invalid and cannot attend preaching. My daughter sends me sermons to read. I have been praying for the rising generation in this community for a number of years, and am thankful to see them coming in the church, a few at a time. We had a glorious revival in August. Rev. J. H. Bass, our pastor baptized 22 the 3rd Sunday, as a result of the meeting Rev. Putnam did the preaching well. Let us all pray for those young converts, that they may be faithful workers of the Lord—they need our prayers and sympathies, I know, from my own experience. He led me through many difficulties in answer to prayer. The father takes the child and lifts it over the mud holes in the road, so it is with the Heavenly father. We are apt to forget what we hear, but our own experience is never forgotten. We have a flourishing Sunday School with Mr. T. E. Stevens, as Superintendent. He is the grandson of the n...

IN MEMORY OF MRS. JENNIE E. OLIVER Dearest mother you have left us, Left the home you loved so well; But some day we hope to meet you, And together we will dwell. Friends may think we'll soon forget thee, And our wounded hearts be healed, But they little know the sorrow That's within our hearts concealed. Thy death has caused a vacant place In the world that never can be filled, But sleep on sweet unselfish spirit; Take thy rest. For God knows best, and doeth all things well. A FRIEND. A slender acquaintance with the world must convince every man, that actions, not words, are the true criterion of the attachment of friends; and that the most liberal professions of good-will are very far from being the surest marks of it.—George Wahsington.
