RUNNING SHORT ON MEN.
Kver and anon we are applied to
by buaiuess men, at a distance as
well as at home, to send them relia
ble young nfen to help out in varied
liues of business. We hwvc had
occaaiou to recommend or aecure a
nuniber of our country boys for these
purposee; some havestuck and made
greatsuccess, while othera havefallen
ahort Prime stock in this market
is as difficult lo procure as in other
tbiugs. The business world waots
meo, sterliug honest, sober, indua
trious vouug uien?uot sap-heads.
dudes, cigarette tiends or whiskey
suckera. All are not born of the
same mental calibre, but the thick
headed boy of good habita and stick
at-iveness will wiu every time over
the fellow that thinks be knows it all,
puffs his cigarette or takes his dram,
and watches the clock to count the
minutea before heis off to dike np,
niayhap to go calling upon ques
tionable society, or perchance to sit
upon the counter or stand upon
the corner to ogle the passer-by.
What the business world and
the successful world, the world that
generates and moves things and
makes history, wants, is men of
stamiua?good habit^, honest and
industrious. It is such young fel?
lows that become the men of their
geoeration, the envy of the slothful
and profligate, the admired of those
who have run a successful race and
the enamored of goodly womeu. A
preacher in our hearing not long
since touched a peesimistic chord
with the view that the church was
rnnning short on men. Are wei n gen?
eral running short on men, true men?
The demand appearsat present to be
greater than the sapply, and we
should prefer not beiug pushed lo
answer so pointed a question.
But how about another phase of
Mr. Poor-Citizen'a character and in
rluence? Natnre furnishes the cut
worm and other insect to keep dowu
a superabundance of crops. Proba
blj the world throughout nature
adjusti the supply to the demand.
Nature seuds a tidal wave to deci
mate the too great population in cer
tain parta of the globe that the
remainder may thrivr; the planter
thins out hia aown that the remain
iug planta may grow atrong and
mature. But for the governor, or
balance-wheel, the tnachinery would
out-do itself and lly to piecea. Even
so the croaker, the discontented, the
man who teara down but never builds,
is put into a community, perhaps, Lo
keep down the aeething ilrea of Mr.
(lood-Citizen, that he may not over
do himaelf or that things will not
Hj off the handle. It is a poor con
aolation, howeter, that Poor-Uitizen
has in being the balance-wheel. It
must needs be that offeocea, or atum
bling, ahall come, but wo unto him by
whoni they come. Mr. Poor-Oitiaen
ia tilling hia 8phere even aa the
heathen who chastened the people of
larael. He lills his place, the atum
bling-block, but woe ia hia.
Running ahort on men. Do we
not know the fellow who might have
gone along hand iu-hand with the
huatltr, the bnilder, and been with
him a promoter of good thing8, ad
vaucing hia town, county or atate,
yet whose calibre of soul waa rather
too diminutive to share progrea8ion
with another, in aome reapecta his
auperiory Then we have aeen the
amaller man draw off, and everything
the other did waa discounted by a
word and act, until the amaller began
to feel that he was provideutially
aent to check the rapid atrides?
How little a thing tnrned the course
of the two men! Preaumably it was
jealousy, a cardinal ingredient in all
amall dispoairione; perhap8 the
amaller got offended, piqued at aome
thing, and ever afterwarda he looked
throogh darkened glaaaea?could
never see anything bright or good
unleas he waa consulted or became
the leading spirit.
The amall man livea in every com?
munity, country and clime, hia name
is legion.and hia miaaion ia that we
have likened it to. The atumblmg
block ia ever present with ns. But,
all the name, and thankful we are,
he doea not always succeed. He
aometimcs becomes a true balance
wheel?though unintentionly?and
keepa the ezuberant one from going
beyond the aaf ety apeed. The housea
are built, the land bought up, the
town puahed along, industriea thrive;
enterprises, trade, money, innovationa
aocially, politically and morally all
introduced; pubiic-apirited ones are
encouraged, good men are helped up
the ladder, in spite of the pull
backs, and the town or county gets a
nanie for being abreast of the tiniea
and bot aa being a generation behind.
Look aronnd you, and when some
tbing ia brought that is of beneOt to
your plac-p, do not decry it, but
8tretrh your vaaatatd aoul a little
aud pive it a good word, a helping
hand. With th?> pa*t we should
eing "Oodgive ua mnn?"; don't let
us run ahort on men.
Juat here w^want to produce a
verae that we published from an ex
change a few weckaago, in detriment
to the croaker, critic, decryer, mud
slinger :
"Do you know there*s lots of people,
Setttn' found in every town,
Growlin' like a broody chicken,
Knocking every good thing down?
Don't you be that kind of cattle,
rCause they ain't no use.on earth,
You just be a booster rooster?
Crow and boost for all you're worth."
VETERANS SCARED UP.
Colonel John W. Gordon, the general
chairman of the Confederate Reunion
committees, and his veteran associates
were thrown into a state of great
mental anxiety by the announcement
last week of Adjutant-General Ander
son that the Commonwealth, owing to
the Jamestown Exposition, will be un
able to lend the old soldiers the 488
tents which were promisedsome months
ago. General Anderson explained that
he hasorders from General Fred Grant,
United States Army, who commands
all the troopsat the Exposition, tohave
the camp of the Virginia troops pitched
as early as May 20th.
Colonel Gordon, on hearing the news,
went in great trepidation to Governor
Swanson, and laid the whole situation
before him. He said that the change
would prove almost ruinous, as the
veterans had confidently counted on
procuring the tents, which were prom
ised them, and had made all their plans
accordingly. If Colonel Gordon wanted
sympathy, he certainly got it from the
Governor, who was all attention when
the exact state of affairs was explained
to him. Figuratively speaking, the
Executive promised to move heaven and
earth to rescue the old soldiers from
their dilemma, as he thoroughly appre
ciated their perplexity. Governor Swan?
son said he would forthwith put himself
in communication with General Grant
and explain matters to that officer.
LATER.
One of the happiest men in Richmond
yesterday afternoon was Colonel John
W. Gordon, general chairman of the
Confederate Reunion committees, and
the thing which filledhis soulwith glad
ness was the definite promise from
Governor Swanson that the old soldiers
should have the tents they need for
their big camp in the West End. Prior
to receiving the message from tho Gov?
ernor, Colonel Gordon closed a contract
by wire with a Syracuse, N. Y., house
for 1,000 tents and another with a Phil
adelphia concern for a like number.
Therefore, he now has enough to meet
all his needs, no matter what may hap
pen. -Times-Dispatch.

"On behalf of our District Board, I

"Many thank a to your Association

BIG MORTOAGE.
The Maryland, Delaware and Virginia

corded a mortgage' to the Grand Trust
Company in the clerk's office of the Cor
poration Court, Fredericksburg, convey
ing all their property, including stearn
boats and certam wharves on the Rap
pahannock river, to aecure a loan of

paid to the clerk, is $2,071.43.
BAPTIST CONVENTION CLOSES.
The fifty-second session of the
Southern Baptist Convention closed in
Richmond Monday night. It was one
of tho busiest and one of the most en
couraging sessions ever held by that
"body. There were increased contribu
tions and greater results accomplished
by every l.oard in tho As^uiation.
$10.'?,811 was raised for foreign mission
work; over $231,000 for home missions,
and$KJl,4.'W was received by the Sun
day School and Bible board. Plans are
now being put forth to raise f5on.oou
for a church building fund to help
needy churches,
There were 18,798 baptisms, or an
average of 50 a day during the year.
The department of evangelism was re
ported to be a decided success. Begun
last year, it now ha3 12 men employed,
who have worked in six States. The
work shows that more than 1,000 per
sons have been brought into churches
through these evangelists.
At a mass meeting for foreign mis
sions, led by R. J. Willingham, secretary
apeeches were made by J. W. Bailey,
North Carolina, and George W. Smith,
Texas, at the close of which Wal
ter Brooke, of Rome, Ga., gave #50,000
to foreign missions.
Rev. P. T. Hale, of Kentucky, read
the report on education, and among the
several recommendations adopted was
the following:
"That our people earnestly pray and
study as to whether the time has not
now come when the nearly 2,000,000
white Baptists of the South should
found at some city that may be decided
upon by the convention asmostsuitable
a great Baptist university, one that
will be worthy of the great denomina
tion, with its increasing members and
rapidly enlarging wealth."
The adoption of this resolution practi
cally commits the convention to the es
tablishment of a great university. The
report further showed that the Baptist
colleges of the South were valued at
$9,000,000.
President E. Y. Mullins, of the Theo
logical Seminary, at Louisville, Ky.,
submitted the report of thatinstitution.
He said that the trustees were raising
$1,000,000 additional for the endow
ment. Following the report and ad?
dress a number of leading ministers
addressed the body in the interest of
the Seminary.
The Woman's Training School was
discussed and nearly $5,000 waspledged
to its support.
The matter of the Baptist exhibit at
Jamestown was presented by Rev. R.
B. Garrett, chairman of the committee,
and an offering was made to pay a bal
ance of $4,000 on the building.
The next meeting will be held at Hot
Springs, Ark., in May, 1008.
KETCH-AWLS FROM EVERYWHERE.
C. C. Harpcr, a young white man,
was arrested at Urbanna Monday at

urer of Northumberland county. He is
also a sound Baptist and a useful
member of Coan church. He has a
new pastor and here is what he has to
say about it: "Rev II. S. Driscollhav
ing accepted the pastorate of Coan and
Fairfields Baptist churches, preached his
first sermon at Coan on yesterday to a

FRATERNIT Y NOTES.
About one thousand Red Men paraded
Norfolk streets one day last week as
sixty thousand pale faces, more or less,
stood chock-a-block on the streets and
sidewalks, on door stoops, porches and
at windows up to the seventh story and
looked on. Where all the people came
from it is not easy to answer. But they
were there. The parade was one of
the features on the program of the
meeting there of the Great Council of
Virginia, Improved Order of Red Men.
Patriotic Order Sons of America. of
Weems, will observe Memorial Day by
decorating the grave of one of their
members at Irvington Methodist church

Rev. E. F. Garner at the church at 2
p, m., that day, 30th inst. All members
of this order and their friends are cor
dially invited to join with them in this
devotion to their late member.
RELIGIOUS NOTES.
The next general conference of the
Methodist Episcopal church, South, will
be held at Asheville, N. C, in 1910.
Richmond was too slow in her bidding,
and lost the Conference.
There will be no preaching in Irving?
ton Methodist church Sunday evening
owing to all day service at the Baptist
church. Pastor Garner will preach at
Wesley Chapel in the af ternoon.
Children's Day exercises will be held
at White Stone Methodist church next
Sunday morning at 10 o'clock. Also
Children's Day exercises at Wesley

8:30 o'clock.
Union evangelistic meetings, con
ducted by the Rev. George C. Cates,
under the auspices of the Presbyte
rian, Baptist, Methodist and Christian
churches, resulted in one of the
greatest religious revivals ever known
in Petersburg. Over 2,000 persons. old
and young, of both sexes, and
embracing all professions and classes
of business, professed religion and
consecrated themselves to the Master's
service.

yet to be planted here.
The recent weather has been very
fine on the growing hay crop, and while
we have here some very promising :md
beautiful lotsofboth red and German
clover and some very pretty timothy.
ir< n< rally the promise for hay Ia short
and discouraging and many of us can't
fall back on the crop of pea hay as we
have been for years, as peas are very
scarce at $2.50 a bushel. We all rejoice
that the distressing shortage and need
of hay and fodder that has existed here
for six weeks or more is about over and
the warm and damp days have caused
the grass and buds to grow very fast.
There is enough fruit here for home
use if it matures.

BMTOa VirciniaCitizen:?We write
to ask spaco to call the attention of
farmers and merchants on the Potomac
river from Nomini to Leonardtown to
mouth of the river to the injusticc bo
in^ done us by the present owners of
the stcamboat line that now controlsthe
business of our river. Andl have been
requested by a great majority of the
wharf owners, and also by a great many
of the wholesale merchants of Balti?
more city, tofind out from the people
along the Potomac river if they are wil
ling to give their support to an inde
pendent line of steamers on the said
route, and to request them to give me
the information by letters or through
your paper, and also state theiropinions
and what support they are willing to
grant a line of that kind. We, who
have talked the matter over, have pro
Fosed to incorporate and issue shares at
rom $50 to $100 per share to be sold to
shippers and travelers on the line who
may wish to take stock, provided it will
be backed upon a solid foundation. If
we should fail every dollar would be re?
turned. The people have concluded
that they cannot and will not stand the
increase in freight and passenger rates
that have been imposedupon themsince
the first of the year. We propose to
run on the old \\ eems Line freight and
Eassenger rates unless same be altered
y the Board of Directors to be elected
from Maryland and Virginia.
Let us come together in eamest and
build a boat that will carry about one
third more than the present steamer on
our route. We have been informed by
those with experience that for about
$125,000, an up-to-date steamer may be
built-about 185 to 200 feet long- 45
feet beam and of suitable draft. I
have been told by experts that such a
boat could be handled successfully at
all the wharves on the route.
We have some of the very best men
in Maryland and Virginia with us in
support of this proposition. If the
merchants and people along the route
will stick together, we feel sure there
is no such thing as failure. I am,
