It is a good and wholesome thing to do. The shepherd's song will become wonderfully real and prac - tical, if every one will undertake to make it effective in the particular place on earth in which they stand and among the men with whom they live. A narrowing process is not often a wholesome thing for Christians; but now and then it is. The surest and quickest way to make peace on earth, and good will among men, is for a man to be at peace with himself and his neighbors, and to love and cherish friendly relations in his own private and peculiar circle.

I Zbe Baptist Ulnfon. DANVILLE, VA., APR., 1899. Winn of a Cove. At sunset, when tile rosy light was living, Far down the pathway of the west, I saw a lonely dove in silence flying To be at rest. Pilgrim of air, I cried, could I but borrow Thy wandering wings, thy freedom blest, I'd fly away from every careful sorrow And find my rest. 'But when ■' the- dusk a filmy veil was • ' ~ wtftviUg'.' ' Back came the dove to seek her nest. Deep in the forest where her mate was grieving— Tliere was true rest. Peace, heart of mine! no longer sigh to wander; Lose not thy life in fruitless quest. There are no happy islands over yonder; Coine home and rest. —Henry Van Dyke, D. D. Wares and Whiskey. The young man who thinks he can afford to take two or three glasses of beer or whiskey each <lay and never miss the sum he spends would do well to reckon up how much these drinks would Amount to in the course of a year.

Proceedings of Roanoke Baptist Association. [Concluded from First Page]. surely. It lias made great advancement in the last ten years, but never so great as since we have had our present County Judge. Whereas ten years ago \Ve had a grog shop at almost every cross-road, since Judge Tredwav has been our Judge there are but few to be found in our county and none where the citizens have brought good reasons for not granting license; ami we believe if our present Judge had the power over the distillery that he has over the saloon we would soon be rid of drinking places in our county. Therefore be it Resolved, That this body do hereby return our sincere thanks to the Hon. James L. Tredway ior his wise and democratic position in the licensing to sell strong drink, and that we as Christians will do all we can to stop the manufacture and sale of the accursed stuff in our county.

This is a long way off, and we think Ihev made a capital blunder when it agreed to go there.

The rate from Danville and return will be a trifle less than ten dollars —good, however, only oti the special train that leaves Lynchburg on the morning of the 16th of November.
