members of his intention to call up his reeoiutiou which was laid on tbo table at the uieetiig on April 3rd by a vote of eightynix to sixty Various points of orJer were raised by those opposed to

1903 cThin paper la regularly mailed f itsMtacriben until atefittltv Htor t dlaoeniinne ia received sad the anfc cripti M paid in ten to the time the order ia areaTHE changing of the Educational Board of the National Baptist Con vention from Washington to Nash ville has precipitated an interesting discussion and has raised other questions which show that the de nomination is not thoroughly con vinced that the best thing has been done and that other changes ought not to be made There is a grow ing opinion that there is a disposition to centralize too much of the official representation of our denominational work in one place and under the same influence and in this way build up a kind of an oli garchy among Baptists Then there are those who feel that the Educational Board could do more effective work in the section where it was located rather than in the sec tion where it is located and in that sentiment we comcideif the Board is expected to do effective work at all The new Secretary could have been located in Washington just as well as in Nashville and in this wav satisfied thtTdemand of the rapidly growing number of Baptists in that section for the recognition which they deserve and should be accord ed While the great body of Bap tists are in the South they are not all in the South by any meansThe changing of the Educational Board has revived the suggestion of chang ing the Foreign Mission Board which has been periodically men tioned for the past two or three years In addition to the question of recognition it iis urged now that the return of the Board to Richmond would thoroughly the Baptists iii the great St uniteII Virginia and perhaps bring the Lot Cary Conveption back to the told These are strong arguments and no dsubtif these blessings could be assured to the denomination Kentuc ky would offer no serious objection tor above all things the leaders ini this state want that thing done which will dtvelope the greatest missionary effort and will do the most good in saving the world tbroguh the preaching of the word any rate a thoughtful impartial discussion of the question will do no harm as these serious matters can not get a full hearing in the conven tion for various reasons WHILE we pay little attention to Christmas as a religious celebration still there is no doubt about it bein one of the most joyous and happy seasons of the year in which th t peopleold and young rich andl poor vie with each other in adding to the comfort and pleasure of r others Indeed there are a very few people who do not find opportunity and inclination during thiss happy season to forget the cares sorrows and burdens of this lif and find contentment and joy in th I merry merry jingle of the happy Christmas time It is not all re ceiving either for many of the happiest people are those who give both time and money in adding toI the pleasure and enjoyment ofr those who are less fortunate andI who are poor and distressed i inIl this way they emphasize that it iisIIII more blessed to give than it is to uIi tMiIII w receive This season also affords i the opportunity for pleasant recog c nition from one class to another who by virtue of faithful and con I secrated service deserve this kind of encouragement which the hum11 blest and poorest are able to give j A word of cheer to the faithful pasj to uperintendent and teacher and a hearty It Merry Christmas does its measure of good even if you are not able to make a gift of another c character The poor you have with you always and they need the joyous and cheerful remembrance I of the season A little token i or word of sympathy will lighten 1 their burdens and enable them to see a ray of sunshine in their pover ty and want This will cost but little in money or time andwill bring as much comfort to the donor if it is done in the name oi the Mas ter as it will bring to the iccipient May we ask our readers to enter the Christmas season in this spirit and be the happier by adding to the happiness of others THE recent session of represent atives of the several branches of the Presbyterian Church to adopt some plan of unification of these bodies suggests the idea that colored churchmeu have at least set their white brethren a good exam ple in that respect Colored people differ along denominational lines but sactional lines never enter intoI their religion and for this reason they have no Southern Methodists and Northern Methodistsno South ern Baptists and Northern Baptists and our white brethren would more thoroughly represent the unity of the religion they teach if t heywould obliterate these imaginary lines and give emphasis to the principal that religion is universal This section al line in the several den iminations does much in keeping sectional lines in politics and business and all tend to destroy the idea that all of us are citizens of a common country and should give aid and influence to the effort to make it the best government in the world There should be home pride and state pri Je but love of country should be paramount but this can never be as long as sectionalism is encourag cd in religion 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 best help Our paper is now net ring the close of its twenty j I fifth volume and for nearly a quar ter of a century it has stood as the defender of the principles of our great denomination and the rights of the race Our subscription list in all these years has been steadily t increasing but it is far from being what it ought to be and in order to materially increase it we have decided iJ to give the paper free for November and December to those who will send their subscriptions directly to this office lu other words if you will send us 125 we will send the paper until Jan i i 1905 Sample papers are being mailedevery week to a number o friends and the reception of the pa per is an

always selfassertive and if be cause he is wanting in capacity for leadership he is not first in posi tion influence and authority hi will take a kind of diabolic pleasur- in trying to excite envy in the hearts of others toward his superiors The littlenesswhIch is only another name for meanness of some men is a severe tax on one patience It is a relief to turn away from the small man small iii

About the middle of October we went to Dixon and hean preaching in a revival meeting For the first few days the outlook was gloomy indeed the spirituality of the church was very low but as W5 continued they took on new life I We labored with them about twor weeks and the Lord greatly blessed I our labor There were over twenty I professions and the church seemedII much revived and greater part of the professions were cgrown people and several of them very old The church seemed to have great joy and said it was the greatest meeting they have exper ienced for a great many years I We came home and about the middle of November began our revival with Rev P D Skinner D D of Lawrence Kan I need not undertake to describe his preach- ingl for we all know him as a great preacher For two weeks he did the most powerful preaching we I ever listened to We were bless ed with 1 8 professions the church was much revived and strengthen ed in word and doctrine Dr Skinner went from here to assist Dr nderson in Evansville Any church wanting a few sermons of the old apostolic preaching would do well to have Dr Skinner I themI to say that some little interest seems to keep in sight in these parts yet I see room for great improvement When I look over in Hopkinsville and see I Hopkinsville College with our ex AdM on the watch tower laboring I thSe uplifting and saving the people I And then I turn to the other side and look and see Cadiz N T College with that ardent and un I compromising Baptist preacher earnest and determined leader president W H McRidley A M I jD D striving to lilt up our peo pie and broaden Baptist influence I say in my heart surely the Baptists of Western Kentucky should awake and help them on to victory WM H LEAVELL From Eastern Kentucky For many years this section oft Kentucky has had a bad name and has been in bad repute but the power of the Gospel is being felt for good and conditions are considerably improved Some months ego Rev RB Butler the Mission ary for this district visited this sec tion of the state and preached in a I number of places and did much iin reviving interest in denominationsl work At his suggestion I came to Morehead five months ago and preached to the people They wer few in number and disheartened but they enjoyed the preaching I the Gospel and determined to do work for the Master Though onlyI few in number we begun the ereci tion of a church whic is now nearly completed The white people 0in the town not only attended our services but were liberal givers and bave assisted us in many w ys Salt Lick is only twelve miles from Morehead and the Baptists here lost their church house some eight or nine years ago and disbanded Some oi them invited me preach for them occasionally which I gladly consented to do After a few visits the old time interest be gan to return and they decided to reclaim their old property which they did We have made all our payments according to contract and h ve the money on hand to make doet9 We have only about fifteen members but they ate deeply in earnest and have won the good esteem and support of the people in the communI- ty i The people in this end oft 1e state need encouragement and our prominent pastois could do the denomination no greater service than to occasionally come among j and proclaim the wor 1 I Brethr i you are welcome and if you cr ne we make your

Clay St Baptist Church being in such a terrible condition that I thought I wouldsay a few words to let the Baptists through out the State know that we are not dead but alive andare at work for the Master Of course we have been in a very great struggle but by the help of Godand the noble assistance of the Rev J H Frank we feel now that we are moving along nicely We have a splendid Sunday Schoolseveral good Clubs and everything seems to be running smooth We were without a pastor about four months and during that time Rv f F Teyis filled the pulpit and I must say that he gave us excellent ser uice during the time he preached We raised enough money to wipe out our debt We believe that Rev Tevis is a man of Godand we all respect him very highly Now we have called Rev R H C Mitchell of Harrodsburg Ky and we believe we have called one of the best that the state affords He will not begin his work with u until January Our church has no done much for mission work bar we hope
