Dr, Unlcher.; Dr. Cooper. Rev. I. S.
Bpysoß. ; ; Dr. H. H. I'iu. and many other
Kichmond people, loft the city yesterday, to.
attend the great 'meeting. . .
Tho history of the Salem, church at
Sparta; is very closely identified* with that,
of ihe Baptist denomination: in » Jrginia,
a:uMs of the greatest interest In many rc
epects... - „l-"or three-ciuartcrs of a century
tlj» church has had but throe pastors, all
or the same name and all of the same
family, being father, son, and grandson,
respectively. The name of each of- these
pastors was Andrew Broaddus. tho grand
eon, .Aodfew Broaddus, being tho. pastor
to-dny. . The llappnhannock: Association,
to which the church belongs, is a large
one. a»fl there, will probably be a crowd,
of two Or throe thousand people, at the
church to-day to join .in. the celebration. v
HERALD OX EDUCATION.
The Religious Herald has the following
on the matter of education and the po
sition the-. Baptist Associations should
tal:e in the matter: ~* : . -
"The meetings of the Virginia district
associations will furnish a fine oppor
tunity for" the discussion of educational
matters. ■ -Of course.- there ought to. be
some one at evecj' . o'oe of these gather
lncß to explain tiie,lmportance and sig
nificance of the movement to syile
mntjze our denominational schools in
Virginia. But we must go even beyond
this. Our people must have an oppor
tunity, to liear of : the philanthropic! en
deavors of our fellow-citizens. North
nnd South, to help. Sn every, way the
caiise of general education In' the South.
The -Herald has repeatedly printed-com
munications and editorials touching this
movement, and it is not necessary to say
mOro now than It. deserves and ought
to receive -the cordial support- of every
Chr*JUan and patriotic citizen. Dr. Rob
ert Fraser and Hon. H. St. George
Tucker <are the Virginia representatives
of the Southern Education Board. We
hope they may"" find it .; possible to visit
many, if not all.- of 'Our -associations, and
we earnestly urge. the,, committees who
nrrange the programmes", for these, meet
ings to give either of them who may be
presetit a good opportunity to present
this great cause."

AXOTHER HOT DAY.
Hcut Intense mid Xo Kelicf in Slsht.'
Bnt Crops Do "Well.
Yesterday-, was another warm day for
Hichmond. The thermometer stood well
Up in the nineties nearly all ' day, and
there was no breeze to take into account.
£t was one of the most .disagreeable. day«
'of the year, owing, possibly, -to tile
nmount of humidity in the atmosphere.:
Yesterday morning- the reports from the
northern cities showed a- higher tempera
ture even than the- thermometer, here
did. In Js'ew York, Pittsburgh, Philadel
phia, Baltimore, and ■ Washington the
heat was intense.-
Tho only promise the, weather people
<:an give this section is chance of a.
thunder-storm this afternoon to cool
things down a bit. The temperature'to
day promises to surpass that of yesterday
and the humidity . will*. probably be : -as
groat. .
It is more than likely that -from now
until late in 'August the ..weather will'tfon
tinuo warm arid oppressive, with'occasion
al storms. There Is little "likelihood {of
there being as much rain as was evident
last summer all. through, the month, of
-August.
From State reports, .this is fine growing
■weather for crops in all sections of Vir
ginia. Jt Is, not only ;vcry ihot. A>ut ;thefo
Is a plenty of- "'fain.': ■' Rain" and' hen t are
all that is required for a^good crop of any
thing grown' in this section/ provided tlie
soil is able to rroduce.;C :.. ' . :
If there sliould be an. unusually large
amountof rain during 'the rest, of "July,
and during August the watermelon crop
will: be badly damaged,, and.i this is one
crop that cannot "stand -too much ■ rain;

ONE CHANGE MADE BY ;rivv
THE NEW CONSTITUTION.
Why Ex-Conncilinaii .AVnllerstein
! Cannot Succeed Alilermnn.Thoni
aKOii, is to Kesigrn.
; There was hardly a doubt that Mr. Jo
seph .WaUersteln would succeed- Mr. E.
B. Thomason as a member, of the Board
of Aldermen. from .Madison Ward, until
some one dug up the following clause in
the new State» Constitution," which be
comes effective at noon to-day: '-'No mem
ber of the Council shall be eligible; during
his tenure of office. as ".such member, -.or
for one year thereafter to any office to be
tilled by the Council by election or ap
pointment." ■'■■'■ ' : ■ ' ■." ;.-;-•■
It will be recalled, that. Mr. Thomason
has announced that he will remove from
the ward in September. This^will' create
a vacancy in the Board; and Mr. Waller
stoin was slated for the, position. It is
believed that t Captain Cunningham Hall
will be honored by the Board by election
to fill the vacancy when it occurs. Cap
tain Hall would be a valuable addition
to the Board, and .would make a worthy,
successor to Mr. Thomason, who. J)y the
way. is one of the best men in the upper
branch in the municipal government.
Cky-Clerk August has calledthe follow
ing committees to meet this evening for
the purposes of organization for the work
before them: Markets at 6 o' clock: St.
John's Burying-Grpunds,. C:?. 0. and Police,
Elections, and .Schools at S:3O.
Tho Committee on Health, which was
organized pn Monday night, will ■ meet
this. evening at S o'clock for its first regu
lar business session. There are a. num
ber of important matters, and as this
committee has several members who _are
long talkers, the session. will likely be a
prolonged one.-
The Board of Sinking Fund CommiS'
sioners will meet at .noon to-day' lh : , the
office of City-Auditor E.J. Warren.

BOYS JUMP STItKET-CARS.
The Priietice is Giving 1 - Employees
' Trouble", on' Main Street.
The employees of t.iC Passenger arid
Power Company are having no little trou
ble, with boys jumping on and off of ' the
cars at Beech "and Main, Seventh and
Main, and Ninth and Main streets. The
custom . has become very annoying, to - the
patrons of the road, vand yesterday 'at
Beech and Main streets a boy jumpedron
as the car was crossing from one track
to the other and came near throwing- a
gentleman, to the ground. As it was the
boy fell himself, but ran away without
being hurt. . , - - '- ■- .- ; .
The company has asked that the police
men of the city : watch these things as
the conductors have all. they can attend
to, and unless the practice; is stopped be
fore long "there will be another: fatal
street railway accident to record.
