Candidate for Re-EIcclion
Election September 13, 1917
Our community is in nice condition
and everybody seems to be in good
health, except Rev. J. V. Johnson. He
had an attack of the hay fever, but
is much better at this writing.
Sunday was a very pleasant day and
everybody seemed to be happy be
cause there was work for them to do
to lead the little ones to Christ.
Our teacher, Prof. H.' H. Bright,
was not with us Sunday. He visited
the Baptist convention in Murfrees
boro. We missed him because he is
the principal teacher, but we manag
ed to get through.
Rev. Williams was at his post Sun
day and a lovely crowd was out an I
everybody seemed to be tilled with
the gospel. Collection, $:5. Rev. Wil
liams will start his revival meeting
the second Sunday in September at
Little Bethel A. M. E. Church. Wc
trust that he will enroll a great num
ber for God.

Rev. A. C. Garner, Right Worthy
Grand Chief ofthe Independent Order
of St. Luke, and Mrs. Bessie B. An
derson, District Deputy, headed a
large delegation to the Richmond. Va.
Golden Jubilee of the Order. They
represent a Washington constituency
of over 2,000. The outlook at this
writing is that Dr. Garner will be
retained as Right Worthy Grand
Chief. He and the Grand Secretary
Treasurer, Mrs. Maggie L. Walker,
have worked together as a unit and
the order has prospered marvelously
under their far-seeing administration.

they have trimmed Mr. Ellison's

The right-thinking citizens of the
District of Columbia want the ballot.
The Washington Times is putting up
a stiff fight for the right to vote in
this federal reservation and is point
ing out that benefits of every kind
will come to us if the people here
have the ballot. The colored people
are taking little or no part in the dis
cussion. Many whites prefer to have
the present Congressional and commis
sion form of government to poular suf
frage, for fear that the votes of the
Negroes would hold the balance tf
power and bring on all of the
"dangers" of "Negro domination."

WE T0ID YOU SO,
"That sin will out" is an old prov
erb. But it does seem that the Di
vine Providence ultimately brings to
light the real character of men in
very peculiar ways. When a man
has by political trickery and shrewd
maneuver reached the top of human
society whether in church or state,
who is at the same time void of true
Christian virtue and these higher
moral principles essential to real
leadership. In fine, when a man
who is a hypocrite, by some irony of
fate, is rushed into prominence, if you
will give him time he will break his
own neck. The poison that is inate
the germ of smallpox, break forth In
to external corruption where every
body can truly Judge of internal life.
But God does not always bring his
exposures through the channels look
ed for, but often in altogether unex
pected ways. If reports are true,
some men who have sailed mighty
high in the church world who have
arrogated to themselves exclusive
ness of Dictators in things Baptistic,
are to be disgraced through the medi
um of secret Society. If you will
hold your ear close to the ground
you will heaar the rumbling in the
Pythian ranks of Arkansas that are
destined to bring to light some as
founding facts and pull the sheep
clothing oft the grafting human pi
rates, who by reason of their hypoc
risy have bad their poisonous fangs
burled deep in the public confidence
THE LAST AGE OF TIME.
By Pearl L. Gilliams,
May the Lord help us all to realize
that we are now living iu the last ago
of time. The 24th chapter of Mat
thew is being speedily fulfilled. Jesus
tells us that when ve see all thesa
things, know that it is near, even at
the doors." Matt. 24:33, and "This gos
pel of the kingdom shall be preachpA
in all the world for a witnesiTunto)
all nations, and then shall t'e end)

speedy return is foretold ia Matthew
24:14 and it is seeping to tbeearth's
remotest bounds. This mighty tn.cX.
is being strongly proclaimed to every '
nation by the saints of God, and I am .

self trembles it forth, for the steady
increase of earthquakes is an unmis
takable sign of the end. Matt. 24:7.
For nation shall rise aga'Sst nation

there shall be famines and Bestilences
nnd earthquakes in divers places, and

high time to awoke from our sleep
for now is our salvation nearer than,

find's salvation for Jesus came in an :-
acceptable day to bless the world. As ;
T fnrenald. we are nOW living ltt the
last dispensation of time, and God's
word is now an open book 1 to the
world, offering mercy and salvation to
every creature under heaven, but its ;
mures will close forever when the Son .:
of man shall come in power and great j
glory to Judge the quick and the
dead. No, there will not be an age
after this in which there will be evan
gelistic campaigns conducted to get
people saved. The great day of Judg
ment is yet in the future, and also the
second coming of the Lord. But he
will judge the quick and the dead at
his appearing. 2 Tim. 4:1. For he
has appointed a day in which he will
Judge the world. Acts 17:31. The
great day in which Jesus is coming
'has already been appointed but is
known only to the Father himself.
But of that day and hour knoweth no
man, no, not the angels of heaven, .
but my Father only. Matt. 24:36. Yet
there have been false prophets pre
dicting the immediate coming of
Christ and the end of the world b;
iflra hilt ha TiARVr came, for If Deonltl
knew that the Lord would come on a
certain day there would be no needj
of their watching beforehand. But he
warns us in Matt. 13:35, 3fi, also in
Thess. 5:26 to watch. The final sepa
ration between the righteous and the
wicked will be made when the Lord
appears, so let us who are not ready
prepare to meet him when he comes.
