of us went to the mountains in steam cars about two miles up and descended in sliding baskets guidud by the natives It was most interesting 10 see the terracnlike gardens from the foot to the top of

work Our Steamer anchored at sea there being no harbor From this point the view of the city is charming the white oleanlooking houses were what looked like white dots soatterred over the hills which we had seen for over half an hour after sighting the city The varied coloring of beautiful gardens laud flowers formed a lovely picture which we delighted to gaze upon for awhile before landing The

I I uia out into the water to tempt them The landing from the steamer was by ten ders On landing we found walking over the the slippery pebble pavement quite difficult So some went through the city in bullock cars or ox sleds the clumsy but usual mode of conveyance Others use hammocks some horses which are very surefooted es peoially shod for the purpose Madeira wine is herb in large store houses

where by any might be Injured or lose their lives What a wrong report It would be I There u no revival 01 brotherly loye in these safety appliancesnot an ounce ol it but a wholesome fear of law lest

said that there are 153246 Sunday chools in the United Mates and Canada The average membership of these schools is 85 but the majority have less than fifty members each The pastors andsuperintendents as a rule have had no special training in the ad ministration o f Sunday School matters This makes it necessary for us to inquire what can be done to make the Sunday School a more efficient factor in general elucatio- estionThis 1u should be studied witha great deal of seriousness by the intelligent thoughtful people who regard religious knowledge and Christian culture as essentialI to American manhood and woman hood National Baptist Union This very suggestive and pertinent article in the Union deserves more thin a passing notice as it means much to the church and the denomination The need oi1 the age is improved and effectiveL work in our Sunday surface work by untried and inexperienced workers but earnest and consecrated t ork by workers who hive either been trained or have rlacge ard varied experience and who feel keenly the responsibility of bringing the children to Christ In the work of unlifting the race the Sunday School plays almost as important a part as does the home the school and the church because it is supposed to supplement the work of these important agencies and under proper conditions its influence would bd potential for good IN the good book from which Bro Wilkins of the Chicago Con servator used to preach End whose precepts he endeavored to follow when he lived in n entucky years ago we learn that Ve speak fhat we do know and testily that we have seen but since he has been in the Windy City he seems in have forgotten much that he preached and practiced in this state His references to the manager of this paper are wholly imaginary and visionaryand we doubt whether he seriously considered what he wrote The kindly reference made in these columns some wet ks ago to the Odd Fellows Journal was based upon a criticism f mini in the Independent of Atlanta and had no reference incidentally or remot edly t 0 the controversy between the Conservator and the OddFel lows Journal Bro Wilkins mag nifies his importance when he pre sum s that every allusion made to any matter about which he has an opinion is directed at him for iin this particular instance we did no have the good brother in mind Surely the wicked flee when no man pursueth WHEN the question involving the constitutionality of the suffrage law of the State of Virginia was being argued before the United States Supreme Court in Washington D C this week the unusual scene of the courtroom and corrideis being crowdedwith a well dressed and well behaved crowd of colored people was witnessed They were there as silent but interested spec tators to the consideration o fa question in which they are mor- o e t t i t t i i 11 w deeply cone rned than any other class of citizens There is no tell ing what decision the court will finally render and if it follows the trendof its previous decisions there is not much to encouroge the race There are new features in this case which has not been pass ed upon in the others and in this thtre is some hopethough we confess it is slim I TilE suggestion that colored men vculd organize a Civil 00ib erty Party and nominate a Negro lor the Presidency in a convention to be held in St Louis July 6th is in our Judmnt premature In the first plac the whole affair savors of a trick to draw colored men from the support of Roosevelt for Presi dent and besides this it is entirely too close to the Democratic Na withifavor There will be no Negro candidate this year for the people are entirely satisfied with having a true and tried fried like President Roosevelt in the White House and are not chasing phantoms at this time IN another column of this paper will be found the first ofa series of interesting letters from Rev C H Parrish 113 D describing his jour Hey to the Holly Land and giving his impressions incident thereto Dr

tongue makes a wise head Chickasaw Rival It is so decidedly n advantage to every pastor to have his members an intelligent reading people that it would seem that everyone of them would feel disposed to urge cribfe for the slenorrinational papers But it is rather the exception than the rule that the pastors ever say or seem to care anything about the matter American Baptist Flag Just to be loving

at night Our Lord was praying when he was transfigured a Am his raiment became shirr iris exceedingly white as snozv The evangelist cannot find adject ives with which to set forth the glory of his appearance His garments were dazzling in their whiteness His face shown like the sun All the brightness of the Diety which his disciples could see with out being overwhelmed shone l through the veilof ttlsh The faithof the disciples was to be put to a test by the crucifixion ot their Lord Nothing could better ava to strengthen it than this manifes tation of his Divine glory As Go must be triumphant over death this manifestation proved that he laid down his life voluntarily that his chosen ones might be saved trom the penalty of their sins 4 Andthere appeared unto Inc ii Jilia Uiti Moses The apostles appeared to have known without any telling who these men were y And the inference psthoughonlyknowkuow all the saints Elijah had gone to heat n without deal i Moses hid died and God had buried him Did he come in his resur rectin body Was it at tnis tithe me conflict between Michael and the devil about the body off Moses took place The Bible is silent and we do not know And they were talking with IusIt seems from the Greek that the disciples didnit hear the first ot the conversation but woks up near its close They were talk jug to the Lord of hiq death in Jerusalem How much there is connected with this one event in our Lords life that plearnpthinggivihimwere asking him to tell them in regard thingisgranted Moses to promisedpassed since he had bidden Moses to cease speaking

saving This is my be loved Still hcarlrirMark gives part of what the voice said Matthew gives the whole This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased hear him God spoke pehuslife on earth The words were addressed to the apostles and through them to all men to the endof time The disciples were more fright than ever when God spoke to and they fell on their faces y did not see the cloud and th venly visitors departed but lay on their faces till the Lord touched and looking up they saw h al JOe Matthew tells us he said to them Arise be not afraid The glories of the transfiguration were over and they must go back to their work on the plains And as they came lawn from the mountain he charged them that the1 should tell no man what tiring they had seen till the Sou olllltlll were risen The people had tried once by force to make him king when his power had bee shown in a great miracle and the knowledge of the transfiguration might cause them to rise in rebellion against the Romansa thing they were always ready to do itfllid they keep that saying call obeysdthe three questioned among themselves as to the resurrection which he spoke They believed n II the final resurrection but the
