doctrine as Baptists only accept such doctrine as the scripture teaches The phrase perseverance in its primacy mevuing sigtfies a oontinuauee in any design or course of actions The logl oath it Is a doctrine of considerable controversy be tbe RomaniBt Luthe ana CtlvaniHts and Armenians some affirming others denying The great Apostle in the text before us declares hlmtittlf in the most positive terms listen Belng confident or this very thing Of what is he confident That loBe which hath begun a good work in will perform it until the day of bout Christ The begsnninfc of this good work In us was the Holy spirit and He rIll be faithful to perform the fame work until Jesus comes John 6 89 tells us omethlng of his heavenly Fathers will whose will cannot be bloke and this ia the Fathers will which hath sent me that of all which He bath given me I should loose nothing shall raise it up again at the last butI Hence we are a gift to tbe Son of God by the Father and as such we are His portion He emphatically declares I shall loose nothing but shall raise It up again at the last day This destroys the idea of any final apostatising or being lost but saved Tbe fact is ex plicitly taught in the word of God It sets forth the purpose love power and grace of Grd All of this is to secure and assure our eternal salvation In deed tbe weakness of man if left to bim elf lie is sure to fall Sins are committed by us through the weakness of the flesh Therefore the Apostle tells us In Rom 725ISO then with the mind I myself serve law of God but with the flesh the law of sin The Apostle in the text iaconfident that he ia secure and in reading after the Apostle Peter we find that we are secure Hear him Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the the last time Secure from what Falls sins and back lldlnga Nay Prov 2416 We may have many fall1t We may fall seven times and rise again To fall does not mean to be loss The glory Is seen In the fact of rising again Neither does backsliding mean loss for the Scriptures saitb God is married to the backslider We are told that if any man salth he bath no slue he deceiveth himself It hi Gods watchful perevatlon that keeps guard over his weak children preventing their total estrangement from Him and bring tuem by His pow er and our faith cooperating unto eter nal salvation In so doing however He

still that Ito organization is prematura and irregular as well aa unnecessary and ezpessivi I still maintain the Idea that out Board acted without authority irons the Gflntral body and thus put tbetr

tbe old town ef Danville as has been predicted by some fekoU how goofc and how pleasant It Is for brethren to dwell together in unityrRemember we are brethren and rhoul do nothing hasty or rash Some are talking of unheard of ohangea and removals from offlue but I hope that Bar e cooler judgement may prevail and that the great change may not be same unless we see tbat tbey are faftifiable We hould

that the missionary work in tho state will swallow up the educational work are cat vassing the state seeking to have every district meeting they can iii in- fluenceI to do so pass condemnator resolutions against the State Executive Board and the Womens Mis sionary Convention If our educational work has come to the pass where it must resort to such under hand3 methods as these to maintain its existance then it deserves to parish The Torch Light This is an unjust reflection upon the representative of the education al work who usually attends the As sociational and conventionalmeet ings in this stats and is absolutelyl untrue afar as the instnuation is meant to apply to him It is a su prise that the Torch Light usually fair just and truthful should reso l to this old method of mtsreprese tition surmising and impuguing ofr the motives of his brethren in order to gratify his spleen and opposition The Educational work fs fostered by the General Association as well as the Missionary workand will be properly cared for as it may deserv and as the Association has the means Some associations have passed resolutions disapproving off the New Womens Missionary Convention but in no case has it been done at the suggestion or solicita A c tion of any representative of the Educational work but iis rather the y outgrowth of the very strong hostil1 ity in the state toward the new movement and of this the editor f the Torah Light is better J than he pretends to be informedI I MOB violence whether in Alabama or in Delaware is wrong and the character of the crime or the color of the criminal should neither condone or justify lynching It isi 5 folly to talk about a law that would punishone clasa of criminals in a specific way for a certain offense andanother class of criminals iin another way for the same crime There ma be many device3 of mak iug 1 1t vs ipply in a peculiar and parti il w y hht no law making power in il ia country would dare pass a law stating in plain words itsi purpose to punish offenders accord ing to color instead of according toi havefno respect for the minister who couldendorse such a suggestion The better class of Ngroes always i regret and denounce the outragesi which form the excuse for lynching but they have no more personal1 knowledge of the purpose to com in t these crimes by Negroes thant lIta the good white citizeus have of the crimes committed by white criminals and are no more able toi t c4 prevent them The better class of 1colored people do separate them selves from the criminal class and have no means for protecting them becnuse they do not come in con l tact with them and it is unjust t f charge either the responsibility oft the crime or the failure of punish f ment to this cause It iis evident l that the mob spirit ts on the in t crease and it coes not stop with the 1f lynching of Ne onok IY r 1M1 t ally finds a white victim and the I nnmber will increase unless an honest and effective effort is made I to create a strong and vigorous sentinrent in every community in ffavor of law and order The suggestion to have all money collected at or sent to the district Associations and Conventions for j state work be sent to the General Association instead of being paid to the representatives of these enter goodtiaith but such a change is unwise and would work to the injury of the very enterprise which it is intended to help The only good to be ac complish would be the enlargement ot the contributions to the General Associations but would not add one cent to the support of the Educational or Missionary work and per haps in the change both enterprises would be denied the immediate 1use of the money collected which in some cases where these bodies meet after the meeting of the General Association would be material1 as in other cases the money would be held in the hands of treasm iicS or corresponding messengers for near ly a year This money would uot help these bodies any as they could not use it and then the records off the Boards would not show a cent received from these bodies for the educational or missionary work as the General Association would be credited with the paympnt in the aggregate with this money The logical result of this change would be that churches would follow the example of the associations and re tain the money raisec for Educational and Missionarv work untill1 the General Association and in this way the idea of sending all moneyr to that body would be encouraged I and there would be no money re Misrsionary work during the year rtHowever promonters of this movement may be it iis very evident that the Missionary and Educational work would suffer if tne plan should be adopted and since nothing is to be gained th plan should be abandoned WEDDING BELLS Last

t iC4 f RUINED TO ASHES On Wednesday evening June 24 th the pastor officers members and friends of the Alpha Baptist church Franklin Ky assembled in the spa cious auditorium to witness the Praise service justbefore the time I set for the burning of the mortgage on said building It was indeed a pleasure to witness the joy on the faces of the care worn self sacri ficing and church loving members and friends In the beginning of third years pastorate of the Rev W C Allen the church was completed at a cost of SIQOO It was a great day the fourth Sunday in June 1899 when the con gregation took possession of the new brick house and raised 425 with what we had in hands we cut the debt half in two We have taken time and in three years paid all but 11109 so the pastor an nounced In may that we would ral ly the third Sunday in June and pay off the last note then burn the mortgage The members friends rallied nobly the members were asked to give one dollar each and all that have been any account to the church these six years gave the dollar or as much as they could memI shirking all that is honorable to a church member for four years some that must have uptodate closhes to wear to church but nev have had as much as twentyjve cents to give to the church Rev D Kucas of Bowling Green did the preaching and it was well done he preached the three power ful logical and soul stirring

Ramah Sam uels home where he had gathered them before their memorable vic tory over the Philistines Samuel brings them a message from God briefly enumerating some of the great blessings they hadreceived And you have this day rejected your God God hid been their king and had done for them more than the greatest human king could do But God delivered them from thsir enemies when they ceased J tence to him They thought tha a strong king would protect them from their enemies and let them go- onsinningNow present yourselves before the Lord by your tubes and by your thousands Samuel ha shown them that the secret desire of their hearts to get rid of Gods yoke was known to the Lord But God grants their request Often times the answering our prayers awe s wish them to be answered woul be a chastisement When the churches wish to conform to the world the Lord allows them to do so but punishment is sure in the loss of spirituality They presented themselves that the king might be chosen by
