There is a distinction between
the ministry of pity and the minis-
try of power, says President H. L.
Smith of Davidson College, N. C.
In the ministry of pity there is al
ways danger of overdoing and so
of illdoing. In providing for the
homelss poor there is danger of
pauperizing. But in the ministry
of power, to which education be
longs, there can be no such danger,
since an education itself can never
be given to any child, but only the
opportunity of an education.

Great surprise was occasioned to
the many friends and relatives here
of Mrs. Effie Rushing when the an
nouncement of her death was made
last Friday, she having been ill but
a few days, and her family had not
anticipated serious results. Mrs
Rushing was the daughter of John
H. Wyly, and the widow of Bob
Rushing, who was killed at Paris
several years ago. She will be re-
membered for her christian devo-
tion and her general independence
of manner, two notable traits of
character. She resided here until
a few years ago when she returned
to her farm near Point Mason, on
Tennessee River, where she has
since resided. Her daughter, Mrs.
Walter Hudson, of this place and
surviving memoers or tne lamiiy
