THE SUNDAY QUESTION.
(Continued from page
mau" (page 822) "And what?
ever labor or service bis good
may require us to perform on
that day, we are to do all works
of necessity and mercy". This
was not allowed under tbo law.
"Such a law of ilio Sabbath is
as precise as can be given and
not keop men children, or make
them maohinos. It avoids all
preoisionism, allowing each one
to decide for himself, whether
or not he may pluck the ears of
corn ns he passes through the
Holds, and rub them with his
hand," page Il'JH. For the ob?
servance of the civil Sabbath
the statute law is the only rule
by which wo oan he governedj
it providB for "Household work
or otfior work of necessity and
charity." There is no rule
given in the New Testament
for its observance, and the old
law was abrogated. Therefore,
the ofllcers of the law should be
the judges of what are "Works
of necessity and charily" and
when any works other than that
of necessity and charily is done,
the civil law should be rigidly
inforced. The question for dis?
cussion by the laymens, should
bo, what are works of necessity
und charity, and look to the
enforcement of the laws ?<>v
orning these, and not attempt
to twist a part of Levidionl Ju?
daism into the Christian Sab?
bath, and leave oil' certain
parts of the burdens carried by
the Ith commandment, jnsi as
it may suit the individual. I
Take all the rctptirincnts of the
Old law, and observe them, then
we will believe at least that
you are sincere, though wrong ?
in your understanding of the
Sabbath question; Von shall
not do any work on the
Sabbath, declared the 1th com
mandment. The Christian!
Sabbath is more liberal.

Health Department Urges
That All Dogs Should He

Richmond, Vn.| May 10.
With more than four limes as
many persons given nnti rabies
treatment during the present
year us wen1 treated during the
same period of It'll, the State
Department of Health has is?
sued u special warning to the
public to keep idl dogs muxzlod
until rabies disappears from
"From the evidence of the
State's laboratory and from re
ports that have reached the of?
fices of the Health Department,
says Hie bulletin, "it is obvious
that there is a much greater
prevalence of rabies in the State
at present than at the same
time lasi year.
"Contrary to general belief,
rabies can appear at any tine-,
and is not confined to the sum?
mer months Many rabid ani?
mals now appear to he at large,
whose victims may be expected
to show evidences of the disease
in the next few weeks. Kvcrv

Indeed, every domestic animal
exposed to rabies, it* a menace
to the community. It is very
Important that all dogs bo muz?
zled as a precaution until tbo
disease disappears. A proper
mur.r.le works liko hardship to
a dog but io a much needed
protection to tho public. In
cities and towiiB where tbero is
no legal provision for muzzling
nnhnuls, ordinances should be
adopted at once."
The Health Department treats
freo of cost all persons who
have been bitten by mad-dogs
and who cannot pay the expen?
ses of treatment at the regular
Pas tour Instituten, and at pres?
cht the Stnto has give cases lin?
der treatment. All of those are
required to remain in Richmond
for ihren weeks as the treat?
ment cannot bo given in a
shorter time. Patients at the
Pnttotir Institutes must under?
go tho same lengthy treatment,
The expense and inconvenience
of the treatment and the mone?
tary loss from rabies are addi?
tional arguments cited in be?
half of a general muzzling.
The bulletin concludes: "An?
ti-rabies treatment should never
be administered until it is defi?
nitely known that the animal
biting the patient has true ra?
bies. All suspected animals
should bo tied up securely and
should be killed when they
show symtonis of the disease.
If tho animal has bitten any?

COKE GOES TO CALI?
(Hjp \V. 1). Ilobort?
It may not bo generally
known that cuke made in South
I West Virginia is used in Texas
and as far west as California,
yet it is trim. A representative
of tbo Southern Pacific railroad
was in the ollices oftbo Stonega
I'eke X' Coal Company here
last week to look after the rout
ing of twelve cars of coke from
this lieht to Los Angeles, Calif.
And thus Virginia, because of
high grade of her coking coal,
is able to send one of her pro
;(iu.-Is, against a $'.UM) freight
i rate clean pust the coal mines
of Colorado ami Oklahoma, a
ififteen hundred mile longer
haul and take the market. Hut
I at the same time, while there
I is a pressing demand for more
I men tn the mining industry in
Virginia, there are, according
to press reports ami private ad
I vices, CO,(M)0 men in Los Ange?
les and San Francisco and Col?
orado without work. Women
and children are suffering and
the objects of charity out there
from lack of employment for
men. Most of them were token
out of the South and Fast by
tbo railroads which represented
to thorn that work was plenti?
ful and fortune sure. They
have not found it so, and now
wish to lie "hack home."
A serious condition in Vir?
ginia today is that of getting
good, industrious men to do the
work for which they aro need?
ed, and it appears that a seri?
ous question for those who
leaveVirgiuia for the west is to
gel work at all. More men are
needed right now at Stonega,
Osaka, Roda, Imhoden and
Kookee in this Held, and good
miners can make more money
at there places than anywhere
in the West, even when there
is any woik for them out there.
Just now there is none.
Virginia, particularly, among
the Southeastern states wiil be
benetltted by tbo Panama On
nal, but it w ill he in proportion
to her efforts to lake the busi?
ness thus created; and this will
consibt largely 01 coaling the
iuteroceanic shipping. H u t
tq do this there must be more
laborers in tho mines. Hail
Ways and coaling piers aro
u.-i iess without them. The sit?
uation in Virgiuia is practical?
ly parelloled in West Virginia
For some years there has beon
