[For the Baptist Union]. Light. Let us notice the different kinds pf light given us. Many a man would lose his way on a dark night but for his lantern; he feels quite able to go forward if he has sufficient light to see his path. What would the watchers in a sick room do without light? How many lives have been saved by thelight-liouse? No matter how dark and stormy the night, the light-house beckons a safety. How many dark deeds of murder and robbery are prevented by the electric lights light up our great cities? " For . every one that doetli evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light lest his deeds should be reproved." Many a traveler would be lost at night but for the moon and stars. Without light there would be 110 progress in anything. But God never intended man should grope in darkness. He never created him until He had spoken a noonday sun. And the light of knowledge! What great things have been achieved by the light of knowledge! How many precious lives have been save...

We have thought it not an inappropriate time to have a plain word with our subscribers who are in arrears. It cannot be charged that we have harrassed them overmuch about the : r small indebtedness. We have no other desire in the world to have what is due the paper than to maintain and perpetuate its usefulness. Neither the editor nor the business manager receives any compensation for their services, and to them both the task is always serious and oftentimes laborious. Whatever is received, both from subscribers and advertisers, is devoted simply and entirely to the printing and circulation of the paper. We beg you to settle up — fully if possible, but as nearly as you can. We are afraid that we shall have to begin the new year by cutting off a great many read - e...

ttbc Baptist Tttnfon. DANVILLE, VA., DEC., 1899. OfiJUBTXAS PKXSKNTS. The OiTln* of Olfta at Ohrlitmaa Should Be Much Simplified. In the December Ladies' Home Journal Edward Bok writes in vigorous deprecation of the complicating of Christmas. " Much as we need simplicity in all the phases of our living," he contends, ' its greatest need is sometimes felt at Christmas. And it seems a pity that we cannot make a beginning there. We could if we would sim - plify this question of presents; if we would leave out of our consid - eration all but the natural promptings of our hearts. If ever material considerations should be dismissed from our minds and lives it should be in connection with Christmas. If ever our friends should see our hearts —our real inner selves —it should be on Christmas Day. Not that we should be other than our real selves on other days. But as it is, we are not our actual selves on the day of all days when we should be. See how we strive that our present of this year s...

To have one great college for boys and another for girls, and other schools both male and female in the State related to these colleges, seems to us to be not only feasible, but most admirable and desirable. Co-operation is better than competion, copartnership better than rivalry. It is not good for a household to be divided against itself in any partieu - lar. We have the material in hand, we believe for the perfecting of such a scheme —and that too not to the hurt, but to the genuine betterment of every institution now in successful operation. Let us be prepared at least to receive suggestions from those who have the great matter on their hearts, in fraternal and sympathetic i...

If each subscriber indebted to us will send the amount due we will be enabled to run the paper with much more satisfaction to all parties. We only charge 25 cents for twelve months for the paper, although that does not pay cost of postage and printing. The Union faces Another a new year, and has Year. another year added to what we venture to call a useful and honorable career. When we have thought of the worry and work, especially on the part of our loyal and efficient business manager, we have wondered if it were worth while —if the game were worth the powder; and whether it might not be just as well to discontinue the paper. But we have never seen the hour when we seriously believed this should be done. The paper is an imperative necessity. It has a peculiar and important mission to discharge. That it might have done better work we will not dispute, but that it has done right well we must declare. It ha...

XTbe Baptist THriton. DANVILLE, VA., JAN., 1902. A Gentleman. I knew he was a gentleman By signs that never fail, His coat was rough and rather worn, His cheeks were thin and pale — A lad who had his way to make With little time for play— I knew him for a gentleman By certain signs to-day. He met his mother on the street; Off came his little cap. My door was shut; he waited there Until I heard his rap. He took the bundle from my hand, And when I dropped my pen He sprang to pick it up for me — This gentleman of ten. He does not push the crowd along; His voice is gently pitched; He does not fling his books about As if he were bewitched. He stands aside to let you pass; He always shuts the door; He runs on errands willingly To forge and mill and store. He thinks of you before himself; He serves you if he can; For in whatever company The manners mark the man. At ten and forty 'tis the same, The manner tell the tale; And I discern the gentleman By signs that never fail. —Sclectcd. A Chin...

No advanca has been made in twenty years, and it is high time our people were moved in this matter. Public schools have come to stay, and they must be made adequate to the great work committed to them. The best men in the country should be made superintendents and school commissioners, and should give themselves with great seriousness and industry to the charge of the duties of this office. The best men in the community should deem it an honor to be permitted to serve 011 the school board. Fewer and better houses should be secured, trained and mature teachers employed, and more months occupied. These things our people should demand and continue to demand until they are secured.

Y.\ >■ February 27, 1902. ) Editor Baptist Union : In your issue for February the article by H. G. C." on ' The Influence of Higher Criticism" is worthy of serious consideration. 1 suppose that many of the readers of your paper wonder what Higher Criticism is. Higher critics vary from conservative historical investigators to rank infidels. So, then, the term, higher critic, is an elastic one. Of course "H. G. C." is aiming at the ranker sort. The higher critics have made an assault upon the Bible as it now stands. First, upon its authority as an inspired book. We have held to the belief in the tradition that Moses wrote the first five books of the Bible. These critics have discov" ered that Moses did not write them, but were compiled by an editor from four documents after David became king. But where the documents came from, or who wrote the...

TEbe Baptist XTlnion REV. T. B. THAMES, D. D., Editor. DANVILLE, VA., APRIL, 1902. When a Subscriber wishes a CHANGE OF ADDRESS, BOTH THE OLD and New Address should be given. There is an unfortuThe Normal nate tendency in these ' n days to make religion Religion, unusual and exclu- sive. This movement is a lapse into the mysticism of the Middle Ages, if it is not something worse. Indeed, it smacks of conceit and Pharisaism. The religion of the Bible has about it a sweet reasonableness, and a healthy naturalness, that make it attractive even to those not absolutely in sympathy with it. We must protest against the modern travesty which loads it down with encumbrances that mar its beauty and destroy its symmetry. Whatever is contrary to humanity, practical godliness, and that is lacking in a broad charity, is not Christianity, whatever people may call it and think about it. There is a standard by which all things claiming to be religion must be guaged. We are not left in the dark conce...
