needing imedtate attention handicapping denominational enterprises at every point hindering and crippling tbe cause more perhaps than all other evils Strange to say it yet true a large per cent of the socalled miosion ary Baptists are afflicted with an ln beritent spirit of forgetfulness They fight the various denominational en terprises with a vengence akin to Sa tan himself Appeals sent out from the leaders invarably go into tbe waists basket Appeals from those who have been elected and asked to do the work excite do denominational pride as among denominations avowed enemies to Baptists awakening no interest nor arousing any enthusiasm Othur people seem to anticipate the wishes of their leaders and make strenuous ef forts to meet them If Baptists would take half as much interest In their enterprises as other denominations ere soon every nook and corner would be under Baptist influ ence instead of that this forgetful elsstf spend more time exciting jeal ousy and prejudice Rowing discord fettling old scores getting even with one another shortsightedness and a niggardly spirit taking possessons sitting idly offering adverse criticisms of men and women who ate there su periors

President MRS L V DOUGLASS Secretary RAMBLING A Pleasant Visit to Arkansas and the Arkansas Baptist Convention Leaving Louisville on a certain Wednesday evening not long since on au Illinois Ce tral train Rambler found himself soon asleep and enjoying much needed rest Out train was an hour and a talf late starting from Louis ville and when we awoke at Mayfi ld next morning we were surprised to learn that our train had lost another hour and that suggested the possibility of misnlng connection when wP reached Memphis At Fulton our train was delayed another hour for some Unknown cause to the passengers so we reached Memphis at 110 oolock p m Insteadof 820 oclock a in Both trains for Helena had gone and there was no boat out that afternoon so Rambler bad to c znteut himself with reaching his destination Friday mom lug and thin only by staying at Lula a little village in Mississippi Thursday night This was aynthing but encoursftiuh to Rambler as be had seen Lula before in daylight and was RamIbIerspos nightifDr Abby Pastor Searcy and other friends could furnish no relief but af terward decided to take tbe chances and eo took the 415 train on the Y M V R R There was an entire car giv en to oolired passengers and it was uncomfortably crowded though Ram bler had a comfortable seat Most of citytobuckets boxes bags caps can jugs sacks and valises and they contained a variety of things both meatiouBble and unmentionable It waa pay day and a boy about sixteen seated in front of Rambler bad been to the city also and be had invested every cent of his montha pay in a gold plated watch a trench harp pair of pints and some cakes and candy The boy informed Rambler that he lived with his father duringheWell a friend on the train had Inform ed us there were several good places at Lula where we could stop and ffer ed to escort ue to a good stopping place Thin eased onr mind and When Lula was reached we were not reluctant in lighting from the train Our friend escorted us to our stopping place and introduced us to our hostess Jt was a country grocery store and it was not a very comfortable place as it WM a very cold night and the building was cage aud airy Hi ping to find an escape from these surroundings we Informed our hostess that It she had no objection we would retire and to our surprise we were escorted outside to the corner of the building to a room about 10x12 with a good bed a chair and a dry goods box aa tile furniture but not a spark of fire nor a place for such a necessary aojuuot on a cold night Instead or writing as is Ram biers custom he turned in and cover ed up head and ears hoping to keep warm until morning In this we suc ceeded and the next morning bright and early we were up and made our breakfast off of cup of black coffee and a piece of cake At 760 oclock Ram ner took the train ou the little branch road to Helena and arrived there at 8 OOIOCK Abe Arkansas Baptist Con veutlon was in session at tile SecondI Bapiitt church aud the East Arkansas Conference in session at cue A M K cuurch at the same time and the gocd people of Helena were entertaining both bodies handsomely without any friction whatever Our old friend aud brother Bishop Evans Tyree was pre siding at the Conference and whet Rambler entered the church the good Bistiop introduced him and had him say a word which was done as best he could under the circumstances Bish op Tyree is splendid presiding officer aud his brethren must appreciate the considerate and impartial manner in which ho disposes of questions before the Conference it was our pleasure visit the

right along Tbe e was no end to the visitors and they came from far and near and were all cordially receiva td1 sxtessd eVBry courtesy Rambler was domiciled at the lovely home of Dr and Mrs P W Clark with Dr W F Graham of Virginia during our stay where we regalia every at ention This happy family embra ass Dr and Mrs Clark mither Jane and mother Fannie and they not only live comfortably and happily them selves but they made those around them the same During our stay we enjoyed the hos pitality o Dr It C Morris acd his fam alp at their elegant borne and had to de cline other courtesies lor want of time After Sunday School and morning set vice Sunday Rambler reluctantly parted with the Arkansas brethren and friends and started on his journey homeward Our train was late again and was dense ly crowned It anyone shares tbe otiution that the race is dying out all he will have to do to dispel it will be to ride through the Mississippi Delta on a Sup day train At every station great crowds of our people little and big men aud women were at the stations and Ire quently not a white face could be seen anywhere and as lost as one crowd emerged from rue train another would en ter and thus it was until Memphis was reachedIn section It Is said that the Ne groes out number thb whites eight to one and still tbe whites hold every office an have almost absolute control of everything Unlike Kentucky many of the plantations are not enclosed and nothing Is planted but cotton and corn Even garden pioea are small and scarce Having few boats to spate in Mempbi Rambler spent that time lu calling on some frienus and swapping a few words with them Among this number were Revj J Seamy H C Owens and Prof W J Harvey Before leaving Rambler spent a short while at the old Beall Street

nbacripftteB paid in tall to tike tine the order fie ivsm THE report of the Superintendent of Education of Mississippi give some interesting facts upon the question of public education in that state which may be studied with profit by persons interested The report shows that 403647 children are enrolled in all the schools of the state and of this number 192881 are white and 210766 are colored While the colored pupils exceed the white pupils 17885 and under or dinary circumstances would require I the larger number of teachers but 5524IIwhite teachers and only 3398 col ored teachers or 2126 more white i teachers to teach 192881 white pupils than there are colored teach I ers to teach 210766 colored pu pils There is the same difference in the Per capita as in the number I of teachers the amount per capita to each white pupil in the state is 1782 while that of each colored pupil is 594 The average pay of the white teachers was 8964 I per month while that of the color ed teacher was 4666 The per capita is based upon the number actually enrolled and not the num ber of children of school age in a given district From this report it is readily seen that the white pupil has the advantage both in the num ber of teachers and in the character of the teachers and under these con ditions there is certainly no reason for the restrictive measures adopted in that state to retard the progress everyIthiugsolutely no opportunity for com petition DESPITE the difficulties placed in the way of the progress of the race in the South there is occasionally a ray of hope seen in the acts and ex pressions of men who lead and di rect to a large extent public sentiment The disposition to break up the peonage system which has grown up out of the peculiar condi tions which obtain in some sections is one of the most encouraging signs of the times The punish ment of those who practice it has not always been severe but the sentiments of Judge Speer and Judge Jones both Southern men who have presided during these trials has done much to bring the system into disfavor and to empha size the fact that the strong arm of the law will and must protect weak and defenseless citizens Besides this the duty of the intelligent wealthy and strong to assist in the good work of uplifting the ignorant poor and weak has been given a prominene which must bear good fruit in the future There are some in both races who will see no good in these things but the thoughtful and earnest observer will find her and there a ray of hope and take fresh courage for the contest for right justice and equity THE best evidence that gambling is being openly carried on in this city is the fact that a member of the Board of Safety has offered a resolu tion instructing the Chief of Police to enforce the law on that subject This resolution was not voted upon however and legal steps have been taken to have the resolution spread upon the records of the Board There can be no doubt of the facts recited as the places have been named and indicated in the most positive way No class of people are suffering more from the evil consequences of this gaming habit than the colored people and it will be a great blessing if it can be sup pressed Years ago there were on ly a few such places conducted in this city by members of the race but now there are many and few of the young of either sex escape the temptations and allurements of these places off vice THIS is the season of the year when we usually make our best ef forts to enlarge our subscription list and when we look to our friends for their

the coming session of the State Teachers Associ ation in this city this month is very encouraging and the largest attendance in the history of that body is assured The presence of distin guished educators from other states is promised and a most inter esting programme has been ar ranged The friends of education and those interested in the uplift ing of the people should give aid to this movement and not only attend the session of the Association but assist in maknig the stay of the visitors in our city pleasant and agreeable Wherever the Associ ation meets the people have extend ed genuine Kentucky hospitality to its members and Louisville shouldI be no exception to the rule There is a splendid reform neces sary in the work of the National Baptist Convention We can not point out that reform without being charged with the desire to boss therefore we will not be specific The common people the uncom plaining followers sometimes have a day in court and sometimes that awful day

things of the Broadway Baptist Church and its work I have never written a let to my brethren since the Holy Iter has made me overseer of this very distinguished church I cam I to this city as pastor June i took charge May 10 but did not begin actualwork until June I Since hen 1 the Lord has blessed cur work abundantlyI to write a letter relative to some misrepresentation that appeared in the Moderator di rectly after the stormy session at Danville but since that storm has blown over and the moderater bee has ceased to hum and those asser tions were not true I will tell you what we mean to do so help us God The General Association will meet with us next year and the members of the above named church have an eye single to that matter and they have proven it by the money raised from June to October We have raised in actual cash 77555 and this is only a small sum as to what we will raise if God will bless us in the future as he has in the past It is said by the members and citizens that the church is in the best condition fie nancially spiritually and otherwise since the days of its organization r which you know it makes the writer feel proud But I take no honour to myself but as said by one of old it is not me but the grace of God that dwelleth in us I will say also that there are four Baptist churches in this city and they are at peace with eachother there is no strife malice i or hostility among them and I net believe that there is any dl vision j among the leaders Broadway Baptist churchshall be second to none In the state with the Deacon and Trustee board that I have and with two hundred or more followers such as we have will take Winchester for Christ and the Baptists Then in the language of the poet together let us go and each shall wear a beautiful smile

chartered members and well die she prove her worthiness by tha way she lived in the church and city She always filled her seat in church unless sickness or death preventedand was there to answe- to her name when called spiritually or financially and never shrunk from her duty- Deacon Mayson has lost a faithful wife and a loving companion and as a tried friend the church has jlost one of its best members and Iher children have lost a Christian mother Peace to her ashes an may we all live to see her again Pray for us brethren I am as ever yours in ChristC EIGBEE Pastor Broadway Baptist Church

62 63 Motto TextI was glad when they said unto me Let us go into the house of the LordPa1221- The temple was the most beautiful building ever erected by man and at an expense ol labour and money that staggers the imagina tion 150000 men hired from the other nations and 31000 Israelites worked ffor years in its building quarrying the stones The skilledworkmen who directed were from Tyre David had gathered one and a half billion in goldand nearly a billion in silver which was used in the construction The iron and brass were beyond compu tation The precious stones were in profusion All that man could be was done to make this temple a worthy foot stool for God Then Solomon assembled the elders of Israel and all the heads of the tribes the chief of the Jathers of the children of Israel facto king Solomon inJerusalem The same men whom David had brought to gether when he proclaimed Salomon the choice of God for the succession to his throne That they might bring up the ark of the cove nant of the Lord out of the city of Davidwhich is ZionMt Zion was the westward of the two princi pal hills on which Jerusalem was built The temple was upon Mtj Moriahwhose top was levelled a great work in itself The temple was but an emptyshell till the ark the symbol of Gods presence was placed within it It was to impress this great truthand to fix their minds on God instead of on the gorgeousness of the temple And all the men of Israel as sembled themselves unto king Solo moo at the feast in the month Etha min which is the seventh month Ethamin was the latter part of September and the first part of Oc tober Three times a year all the men of Israel presented themselves before the Lord And Solomon had placed the dedication at the time oi the feast Gf the tabernacles one of these occasions The Israel ites might be at war but when the time of the feast came the men all left their camps and went to Shiloh orJerusalem wherever the ark was leaving their families in Gods care For they had His promise that no foe should molest the women and children while they were gone HAndall the elders of Israel came and this priests took up th- easkAll the elders went with the priests to MtZion to bring the ark The priests earned it on their shoulders after the high priest had covered it The staves of gold by which it was carried were so long there was no danger of the ark touching the priests And they brought up the ark of the Lord and the tabernacle of the fitt rtgaiol This was the taber nacle which Moses had made in the wilderness It was fol ded up and carefully preserved in one of the rooms of the temple Andall the holy vessels that were in the tabernacleThe altar of incense and its dishes the golden candle stick the table for the shew bread c hAnd kind Solomon and all the congregation of Israel that were as eembled unto him were with hum beore the ark Probably in the courts of the temple When the priests brought the ark up Mt Mo riah they seem to have stood for a while in the court before the great brazen altar while sacrifices were offered Sacrificing sheep and ox en that could not be told nor num bered for multitudes Referring to the sacrifices which went on dur ing the week of the feast Part oif the sacrifices were burned an part of the animals were left for food And the priests brought in the ark of the covenant of the Lord u Ito his place into the oracle oj the house Called the oracle because in it Gods presence was manifested in the Shechmah the light that shown from the mercy seat Great cherubims of gold sheltered the ark with their outstreched wingsCher ubini is the plural of cheruband the s should not have been addj ed The cherubim or the knowing ones are an order of the angels suppored to be of lowe rank than the seraphim the burning ones Only once is this veil lilted high enough for us to catch a glimpse of the seraphim and that was in Isaiahs vision of Gods throne Auld they drew out the staves that the end of the staves were seen out in the holy place before the oracleThe ark wits close to the rear wall in the Holy of Holiesand the staves were very long Thus they were drawn out on the side till they appeared beyond the cur tain in the Holy place where stood the altar of incense the table of shewbreadand the golden candle sticks But they could not be seen by any one outside the holy place into which no one but the priests was allowed to go The sight of the staves would keep the ark and all it meant continually iu the minds of the priests who never saw it No one but the high priest ever went into the Holy of holies and he only once a year And there they are unto this dayAt the time when this book of Chronicles was written There was nothing in the ark but the two tables of stone which Moses put there in HoredThe Aaron i rod which had budded and a golden pot filled with manna had been in the ark Whether God had ordered them to be taken out when the desert march was over or the Philistines had moved them when the ark was in their power we are not told The only thing which was kept in the ark was the law of God The mercy of God is found ed on His law and that law cannot be set aside Its full penalty must be met by every sinner or by the great Substitute And it came to pass when the priests were come out of the holy placeThe high priest alone could go into this place when the ark was at rest and uncovered it But when it was to be moved he covered it and then the priests came in and carried it out They carried it unto the place and put it down and when they had gone out the high priest took off the cover intr and followed them In every way God taught His people rever ence in His worship It is a lesson which is sorely needed at this day And it came to pass when the priests were come out of the holy place that the cloud filled the house of the LordThiswas the token of Gods presence of His ac ceptance of the temple and His blessing upon it The glory of the Lord was the fire the Shecmah within the cloud and veiled by it taberI nacle when it was dedicated so that Moses and Aaron could not re main in it now in the temple the priests had to leave the help place outside the veil which shut off the Holy of holies and God alone oc cupied His temple The teachers must be careful not to let the children get the idea that our houses of worship correspond to the temple Our churches cor respond to the synagogues Gods temples are the hearts of His regenerated ones These are to be adorned with the gold of fine char acter and the graces ot the virtues are the gems FOR UVJ R SIXTY YEARS MRS WINSWWS
