WILL OF GOD

Byway" Preacher. y1

Text : "And He stretched forth His hand
towards His disciples, and said:' Behold,
My mother and My brethren! For who
soever shail do the will of My Father Who
la in Heaven, he Is My brother, and sister,
and mother." Matt. 12:43-50.
in the world to-day
is "God's will," or
rthe "will of God."
However much or
little the term is
it is that it is fre
quently used. As
part of the Lord's
prayer, it finds fre
quent utterance in
ings and fraternal
organizations. ' It
is so easy to speak
of God's will, but it is quite another
thing to realize its meaning and to so
think and act as to bring the will of God
to pass. To do God's will requires an
understanding of what that will is, and
the purpose and ability to do that will
as it is revealed. It would be folly for
the child to attempt to do its father's
will unless it had a clear understanding
of what that will was. And, further, it
would be unlikely to perform that will,
granting that it did know what it was,
unle.-s the attitude of the heart was right
and there were a desire to do and ability
to perform. And, again, the loving and
wise and faithful father would not ex
pect or demand of his child that which
he was unable to perform, nor would
he demand or expect less than that
which would call forth the best effort of
the child. And, further, the father
would not be so unreasonablevas to ex
pect the child to perform his will if he
had not revealed and made plain to the
child just what that will was. We have
two viewpoints, then, from which to
consider our topic, from the' father's
standpoint and from the child's stand
poiH( from the standpoint of the one
whose will is to be done and from the
Etandpoint-of the one who is to do that
will. The father must make his will
plain to the child, and must be wise and
careful to exact or expect nothing cf the
child but that which he is capable of
performing. And the child must sek
it know the father's will and must have
"The desire and purpose to perform ft.
And ihis statement of the case of the re
lation of the earthly parent to his child
exactly illustrates the relation which
man sustains to God.
GOD has a will to be done on earth
even as it is perfectly done in
Heaven. And that this will may be
perfectly done requires first that God
shall reveal that will to man; and sec
end that He shall require not less nor
more than man is able to perform. Man
on his part must seek to know what the
will of God is and then have the desire
and purpose to perform that will as it is
revealed to him. This. I think, fairly
states what is involved in the doing the
will of God. And we must recognize the
fact that the will of the all-wise, all
loving, all-faithful Heavenly Father is
best for man, even as we recognize in
human relationships that the will of the
wie. loving and faithful parent is best
for the child. The child is not always
able to see it and understand it. He lives
for the moment, he weighs things on the
scale of appetite and desire, and that
which he wants the most he judges to be
th'; best thing for him. But not so the
parent. He looks down the years and.
desiring things for his child which will
best fit him for life and its social and
business relationships, he wills this and
that for the child. The child often does
not understand, he cannot see the value
of doing this or that or of keeping from
this or that indulgence, but if he is an
obedient' and loving child he will cheer
fully say: "Father knows best," and do
his best to perform his father's will.
And this is exactly the case as regards
the relations of Gou and man.
DO YOU desire to be included as a
member of Jesus' family circle?
Do you long to have Him stretch forth
His hand and point you out as belong
ing to Him in a peculiar and close
relationship? There is only one way
to have your desire and longing satis
fied, and that is to do the will o' God.
And this involves knowledge of the wili
cf God and ability and desire to per
form that will. And what is the
will of God for man? Just as the
earthly parent desires its child to be
the very best, to realize the very best,
so God, in infinitely higher and better
degree, desires for man the very be3t
He commands: "Be ye holy; for I
am holy." And Jesus summed up all
the wonderful teachings of the Ser
mon on the Mount in the words: "Be
ye therefore perfect, even as your Fa
ther WLlch is in Heaven is perfect."
God searched through all the centu
ries before Jesus came into the world
to. find a man who could perfectly ful
fill God's will, and He found him not.
The very best specimens of manhood
failed. Noah, Abraham, Moses, the
prophets, and even David, failed.
There was "none righteous, not even
cne." All had sinned at some point
in their lives and come short of the
glory of God. But Jesus came and
was holy in life and character, even
as God was holy; He was perfect in
keeping the law of God, even as His
Father Which was in Heaven was
perfect. And in Jesus, the Son of God,
was realized God's will for man.
-And Jesus turns to" you and to
me and says: "Whosoever shall
do the will of My Father Who is in
Heaven, he 13 My .brother, and sister,
HERE, then, is the will of God con
cerning us, that we be holy even
as He is holy, and to be perfect as
He is perfect. But. you say, God has
appointed U3 a task impossible to per
form. And surely it would seem so
In the face of the sin and failure of
men from Adam down to the present
time. But let us look into the mat
ter a little more deeply to see if God
has provided a way out of the diffi-.
culty. Surely it is not unreasonable
for me as a father to lay upon my
son a task which is beyond his skill
and strength to do, if I provide a
way by which the performance of th?
task is made possible. And surely
God cannot be charged with unrea
sonable exaction when He commands
us to be holy and perfect, inasmuch
as He has provided a way by which
man may meet His commands and con
ditions. God says: "Be ye holy,"
and then pointing to His perfect &on,
He says: "Behold the Lamb of God,
which taketh away the sin of the
world." UnrighteoJ.; before God
apart from Christ, but 'n Christ, ac
cepted because of His i ighteousnes3
As Paul puts it in the third of Phil
ippians: "That I may be found in
Christ, not having a righteousness of
mine own, even that which is of the
law, but that which is through faith
in Christ, the righteousness which, is
from God by faith." The first condi
tion, then, of doing the will of God
is in obtaining from Him that right
eousness which we have not of our
selves, and this is realized by a faith
in Jesus Christ as the personal Sa
viour and the One Who cleanses from
DOING tne will of God. then, involves
the acceptance of Jesus Christ as
Saviour, and this act depends upon the
real desire to do the will of God. It in
volves the attitude o the heart towards
God. The Scribes and Pharisees, the
leaders of the Jews, came to Jesus, talk
ing about .God their Father, and pre
tending to be zealous for God and the
doing of His will. But they were not
.willing to accept the Christ, the Son
Whom God had sent into the world to
save the world from sin and unrighteous
ness; and, because they were not willing,
Jesus declared they were of their fa
ther the Devil, and that they did his
will and not God's will. Man cannot do
the will of God while his attitude towards
God is not right, any more than that
child who is in rebellion against the
parent can do its l. lher's will. A re
bellious heart car.net' do the will of
parent or God. Note the parable which
Christ spoke of the two sons. One with
rebellion in his heart said, when told
to go and work in the vineyard: "I will
not go." And while rebellion ruled he
went not. But afterwards he repented
and went. The desire to do the father's
will took possession of his heart and he
went and did it. And the second son
who outwardly assented, but went not,
lacked as much as did the rebellious son
the desire to do the father's will. He
recognized the right of the father to
command him to go into the vineyard,
but he was so busy doing his own will,
and seeking his own desires, that there
was no room to desire the will of the
father, and so went not.
ERE we have illustration of two
asses of people in the world to
day. Both refuse to do the will of God.
One' class recognize the claim of God
upon them, but bein- so occupied with
their own affairs, and the doing of their
own will, they fail to do the will of God.
The other class in rebellion of heart re
fuse to recognize that God has'any claim
upon them. And would that it were
true that all in such rebellion would re
pent and do the will of God. But, alas,
many, many will not! But there are
those who are coming. The will is be
ing given up for God's will; the desire of
man is being given up for the desire of
Gcd. The family circle of Jesus is grow
ing. In ever widening stretch of arm
He points out His mother and brethren,
including not those who only say Lord,
Lord, and go on doing their own will, but
including those who do the will of God.
The acceptance of Chrift is the begin
ning of the doing the will of God. The
successive steps are taken as we do the
will of God as it is revealed to us. One
step at a time, is God's order. God's
Word assures us that "if any man will
eth to do His will he shall know of the
teaching." If you live up to the light
you have, when you need more lijrht for
the next step, God will see that you have
DOING the will of Gcd may bring suf
fering, but it means blessing in the
end. But what comfort to know that
the affliction is in line with the will of
God. Peter says (andwho is there who
knew what suffering meant better than
he surely none, save it were Paul):
"Wherefore let them also that suffer
according to the will of God commit
their souls in well doing to a faithful
Creator." The Godly shall suffer perse
cution, but what glory is to some day
shine out of that suffering! We say
"Tby will be done" as though it were
the hardest and saddest thing in all the
world, when it is the most glorious, for
that will will find its joy and realiza
tion ultimately in the best and most en
during. Doing God's will is a copartner
ship affair. Christ by His indwelling
Spirit is present and ready to help us do
what we cannot do ourselves. And not
oniy does Christ's strength become our
strength, but His desires become our
desires. "The Spirit maketh interces
sion for us with groanings which cannot
be uttered; and He which searcheth the
hearts knoweth what is the mind of the
Spirit, because He maketh intercession
for the saints according to the will of
God." Surely, this is blessed encourage
ment for those who desire to know and
do the will of God. Christ the One Who
gives us His righteousness, Christ the
One Who dwells within to help us do
the will of God. The highest end and
aim of man should be, as Peter puts it, to
no longer live the rest of his time in the
flesh to the lusts of men, but to th will
of God. Let us w ill to do the wtl of
The full text of the resolution in
troduced at the recent reunion of
the Sons of Confederate Veterans,
at Nashville, by W. Armistead Col
lier, Jr., of Memphis, looking to the
establishment of departments of
archives and history in the Southern
States, for the preservation of his
torical data appertaining to the
Southland, is appended. The docu
ment was adopted, but has never
heretofore appeared in the public
prints, and is doubtless destined to
be the cornerstone of a great move
ment in a very worth' direction. The
Whereas, In view of the following
facts, set forth in the supplementary
report of the past historical commit
tee: (1). That the archives of the State
of Tennessee have been found by a
committee of the last legislature to
be in a deplorable condition many of
the most valuable State records hav
ing been allowed to go to ruin from
(2) . That the archives of the State
of Mississippi were in a like condi
tion previous to the establishment of
a State department, known as the
"Department of Archives and His
tory"; and therefore,
(3) . That in all probability similar
conditions exist in other States of the
Whereas, We believe the preserva
tion of historical material to be a
sacred duty which we owe to our
State and country, to our forefathers,
ot rselves and posterity, and one of
thf high objects for the existence, of
oili- organization of Sons of Confeder
ate Veterans; and,.
Whereas, It has been demonstrated
by the States of Alabama and Missis
sippi that this object can be best ac
complished by the creation and main
tenance of a separate department of
State, devoted to "the care and cus
tody of official archives, the collec
tion of materials, bearing upon the
history of the State's official records
and other historical materials, the
diffusion of knowledge with reference
to the history and resources of, the
State, the encouragement of historical
work and research," etc.; arid that
such department can be maintained
and do efficient service at an expense
of $2,500 per year; be it, therefore,
Resolved. That, we the United Sons
of Confederate Veterans, in conven
tion assembled, do hereby indorse and
commend the efforts of the States of
Alabama and Mississippi; and we do
hereby pledge ourselves, as an organ
ization, as camps, and as individuals,
to bring about the early establishment
in every State in the South of similar
departments to those now in success
ful operation in the above-named
States, the purpose of such depart
ments being to save from neglect,
loss and destruction the archives of
the States, to collect, preserve, edit,
and make known their invaluable rec
ords, and all public documents and
material which will be necessary in
the future to a true knowledge and
understanding of State and Southern
history. Be it further
Resolved, That the movement to
establish these departments be put in
charge of a special committee, which
shall be appointed for no other pur
pose, and with no other end in view;
that this committee be designated the
"Committee on the Establishment of
Departments of History;" that it be
made up only of comrades who are so
much interested in the movement
that they will pledge themselves, be
fore appointment, to appear before the
legislature of their respective States,
and bear their own expenses, in using
every honorable means to secure the
enactment of laws establishing such
departments in every State, where,
after personal investigation, the same
are found to be needed. Be it further
Resolved, That we hereby call upon
the governors of the Southern States
to recommend the passage of such
laws as aforesaid; that we invite the
co-operation of all patriotic organiza
tions and historical societies in the
South, and we invoke the aid of the
press in this important movement.
Delinquent Taxes for 1903.
From reports sent the comptroller
by county trustees it appears the
amount of delinquent taxes for the
year 1903 will be unusually small.
The only delinquent tax reported to
the comptroller is the amount as
sessed against the lands sold the
State. So far seven counties have
reported, all small sums, however.
East Tennessee makes the best
showing. Hamilton county shows
only $62 delinquent out of an as
sessment of $7,600.
The following fairs will be held
in the State this year: Lafayette.

The Rhodes Scholarships.
Considerable unfavorable com
ment has been heard in Nashvilli
recently over the fact that the
Rhodes scholarship committee of
Tennessee has decided to give J. A.
Hardin, of the University of Ten
nessee, the scholarship this year, and
John Tigert, of Vanderbilt Univers
ity, next year, provided that the
Ifiiodcs trustees agree to this plan.
This is considered a fairly good ar
rangement, but many' persons have
commented sarcastically on the fact
that the committee was composed cf
four men and that two of the four
were representatives of the Univer
sity of Tennessee.
University Endowment Fund.
Dr. P. T. Hale, the new presi

' Rev. T. J. Davenport and wife, of
Millington, toward raising $100,000
i endowment fund for the university.
Dr. Hale is a vigorous worker, and
lias already succeeded m raising the
amount to $1.,00Q. He expects as
soon as possible to build a music
hall, a science hall and a gj-mna-sium.
Second Regiment Encampment.
The boys of the Second Regiment
of the Xational Guard are now look
ing forward to their annual en
campment, which will be held this
year in Jackson. The time for the
encampment is from August 11 to
21, inclusive. The location is the
same as was had by them in 1902,
nt Walnut Grove, a beautiful plac.;
north of the city, near Highland
Park. Preparations arc now being
made for the event, and a great time
is expected for the boys.
Interested in George's Lectures.

Plans for Women's College.
Methodist ministers at the capital
are now agitating a- plan for the
founding of a Methodist college for
women to be located in some city in
the South, presumably Xashvillc.
At the present time there is not 3
real university for women in the
South. Tt is hoped that it will b
possible to raise between $1,000,003
and $2,000,000 for the purpose.
New Telephone Company.
A new telephone company, known
as the Consolidated Telephone and
Telegraph Company, has been grant"

adjoining counties. The capital
stock is placed at $50,000.
Obion Landmark Going.
The old Metropolitan Hotel, in
Union Oit", is being torn down. Th2
building was a hugs frame structure,
and, in the early days of the. town,
was regarded as the handsomest

fact, one of the oldest buildings in
Hardin's Capital Booming.

CHILDREN'S DAY AT FAIR
Elaborate Plans for Entertaining
Hosts of Children Tuesday.
Children I'ndrr Fifteen, Aecctmpa
nled by Adult, Admitted to the
World's Fair Free Tliat Day.
SL Louis, July 30. Elaborate ar
rangements for entertaining the hosts
of children who are expected to visit
the fair Children's day, next Tuesday,
are being hade on the fair grounds. All
children under 15 years of age who are
accompanied by an adult will be ad
mitted to the fair grounds free. In ad
dition to the arrangements made by
the exposition officials, many of the
exhibitors and concessionaries are
planning special entertainment feat
ures for the little ones.
The central feature of the day will
be the parade of children, of all nations
which will take place at 2 p. m. There
will be an Indian boys' band, Japanese
children in jinrickshas, Boer boys and
girls on ponies, Eskimo children in
dog sleds, Chinese children in car
riages, Irish children in jaunting car,
Indian children in travois and on po
nies, Persian and other Asiatic chil
dren on camels, Syrian children, two
colored loys on burros, Russian and
Filipino children, and others of vari
ous nations. The parade will form at
the Model Playground, near the main
entrance to the grounds, and will move
w.est to the Plaza of St. Louis, around
the Manufactures building and back to
the Model Playground. There will be
hundreds of children in the parade.
Mrs. Ruth Ashley Ilirshfield, super
intendent of the Model Playground, an
nounces that all the children who come
to the grounds would be permitted to
visit the playground.
A special children's programme will
be given at the official music studio in
the east promenade of Festival hall at
3:30 p. m. by Miss Rhoda MacFarlane,
pianist, assisted by Mrs. A. LIngafell,
of Chicago, soprano, and Miss Edna
MacDonald, of St. Louis.
Capt. Lem H. Wiley, conductor of
the Indian boys' band, has prepared a
special programme which will be
played during the parade from the
THE ROOSEVELT BOYS.
They Headed for, the Indian Reser
vation, and Then Took In
St. Louis, July 30. Early to rise was
the Saturday morning complement of
the early-to-bed Friday night pro
gramme of the Roosevelt boys, sons of
the president, who have come to St.
Louis to see the fair.
They were up betimes, refreshed by
their night's rest at the Inside Inn, and
eager for a full day of sight-seeing.
They started away from the hotel
alone. They said they did not want
any pilots or guards, or roller chairs
or automobiles or followers. They par
ticularly did not want any followers.
Their hope was that ..they would not
be recognized, and that they would
have a fine day of sight-seeing without
being bothered by curious crowds.
Their first inquiry was as to the lo
cation of the Indian reservation, and
they headed for it, over at the other
end of (he grounds, leaving the sights
that lay between for another time.
They t'.id not take anybody into their
confidence as to their further plans for
the day. They expressed regret when
they learned that the livestock exhibit
was not open. They had wanted to see
that sight after seeing the Indians. It
is probable that the afternoon will find
them in the Philippines, as their inter
est in the "colonial" exhibit was
aroused by glimpses they had from the
Indian rcbool and the musical sounds
which floated up from the Moro Vil
lage on Arrowhead Lake.
THEY HAVE A BLACKLIST.
The Proenrlnjp of Meat Supplies In
Chtoarn a Serious Question With
Many Retail Dealers.
Chicago, July 30. The procuring of
meat' supplies, even at the high prices
asked, has become a serious question
with many retail dealers of Chicago.
A "blacklist" has been put in circu
lation -by the strikers bearing the
names of retailers who have purchased
meat from the big packers, and the
men listed are finding it difficut to get
supplies from the independent packers.
The system of picketing in force has
made it almost impossible for them, to
buy of the big companies. The "inde
pendent" packers have been warned
that the penalty for selling to the list
ed retailers will be the calling out of
their own butchers. Several retailers
whose business has been thus tied up
have stated that unless conditions im
prove by Monday next, they will go In
to the courts and ask an injunction
against the strike leaders who are re
sponsible for the black list. Several
big markets on the outside of the city
have been forced to close.
Rejected hy China.
Pekin, July 30. When the board of

accept any authority in the matter.

WERE ENJOINED TWO YEARS AGO
FROM COMBINING TO FIX PRICES.
The Present Crisis Is Declared to lie
a Grave One, and the President
la Appealed to For Intervention
to Secure a Just ud Equitable
Chicago, July SO. "It is extremely
probable flint we will on 11 upon the
president to end this flight or help
us to end it," said President Don
nelly. "We are "convinced that he
can do it, and think such a. step ad
visable." Chicago, July 30. Before a meeting
of the allied trades, which was held
Saturday, assembled, it was disclosed
that a resolution would be introduced
demanding that President Roosevelt
give word that the United States- dis
trict attorneys all over the country be
gin criminal prosecution against the
big packing plants which, two years
ago, were permanently enjoined from
combining to fix prices not only upon
finished products, but upon live stock.
It is to be urged upon the president
that the best Interests of the entire
country are prejudiced by the great
strike which has affected all parts of
the country, and that widespread mis
ery has been caused.
Country's Interests Prejudiced.
Addressed to President Roosevelt,
the original resolution for considera
tion by the allied trades, but which
it was expected would be somewhat
modified after consideration, is as fol
lows: "Aware that a strike of over 50,000
workmen engaged in- the packing
plants of the United States is now
pending, and the packers have opened
a fight with the object of disrupting
the labor organizations Involved; and
"If this struggle continues it will re
sult in widespread misery and a labor
war that can only have disastrous ef
fect upon the public as well as upon
those directly concerned.
'"""-Feeling that the crisis is a grave
one, we appeal to you for intervention
to secure for us a just and equitable

"One word from you will inevitably
bring about an adjustment of the pres
ent controversy, as the evidence on
which the government secured a per
manent injunction again the Meat
trust is also sufficient to indict before
a federal grand jiyy every man en
gaged in this conspiracy to control the
prices of live stock and the meat food
product handled by the packing in
dustries." HAS KOTIUNO FOR THEM.
Chicago Bureau of Charities Has
Xothlns for Strikers' Families.
Chicago, April 30. A report was cir
culated among the packing house strik
ers that applicants at the office of the
bureau of charities had been turned
away with the reply that nothing could
be done for them. It was said that
this discrimination occurred only in
the cases of strikers and their fam
ilies. Local Agent Crosby, of the bureau of
charities, said: "We feel that the
unions should take care of their own
people. Any cases which come to our
attention will be referred to Mr. Don
nelly; this at his own request."
President Donnelly said: "We are
able to take care of our members and
those dependent upon them, although
no strike benefits have been paid, and
our commissary department is not
quite ready for opening. Regarding
the bureau of charities, I believe the
fact is that the institution is not in a
position to assist anyone."
QIIET AT KASSAS CITY.
An Extra Force of Police on Duty
and No One is Molested.
Kansas City, Mo., July 30. Quiet
prevailed in the packing house district.
An extra force of police was on hand,
and strike-breakers passed in and out
of the plants- without show of being
molested. The situation showed but
little If any change from Friday.
To Relieve Strikers' Families.
Chicago, July 30. Recognizing the
necessity for general action to relieve
strikers' families, the officers of the
various locals have begun the distribu
tion of commissary tickets. These or
ders were honored in the strikers' re
lief market and at their grocery. Cred
it by merchants has been withdrawn.
No money was paid ou,t. Monday, over
$150,000 in rent is due from strikers.
Xo Mercy to Pickets.
Chicago, July 30. Obeying Inspector

THE RUPTURE IS COMPLETE
The Differences Between France and
the Vatican Are Unreconcilable.
the French Charge At the Vatican
Ordered to Leave and the Papal
Nnncio in Paris "Will Follow.
Paris. July 30. Although no official
announcement has yet been made, it
can be positively affirmed that the rup-.
ture between France and the Vatican
is complete. The holy see'a lengthy
reply to the French note, though most
courteously worded, merely amounts to
a polite statement that the pope doe3
not intend to Infringe the stipulations
of the concordat and will not with
draw the letters calling the bishops
of Dijon and Laval to Rome.
Diplomatic courtesy forbids the pub
lication of the French answer until the
pope is notified, but French Minister
Delcasse has sent M. DeCourcel, the
French charge d'affaires at the Vatican,
two notes, one for the papal secretary
of state announcing the rupture, and
the second a personal note instructing
the charge d'affairea and the others
of the staff of the embassy to return
to Paris immediately after his mission
is accomplished. When M. DeCourcel's
advices reach French Minister Delcasse
the latter will immediately request the
papal nuncio here to leave France.
It is not expected that the rupture
will have any immediate consequences
beyond the mutual withdrawal of th9
representatives of France and the Vat
ican, and the suppression of the em-basr-y
and nunciature, as the denuncia
tion of the concordat requires parlia
mentary sanction. Consequently, fresh
developments are improbable until the
appointment of the new bishops come
up. Well-informed persons do not be
lieve that the Vatican will retaliate
by withdrawing France's protectorate
over the eastern Catholics.
