Dr. Wharton, Now Preaching at the Lexington Tabernacle. A HAVEN OF REST .FOR HELPLESS CHILDREN. A View of the Winnie Davis Cottage-Something of the Progress of "Whosoever." The "Whosoever Farm" at Luray, Virginia, a home for destitute children, grew out of the work of the Rev. Dr. Wharton, who is ducting revival services in Lexington and that God's hand Is in the labor all will admit. Dr. Wharton thus describes the first incident tb.it lead to the founding of this home for the helpless: "About fourteen years ago while I was pastor in the city of Baltimore I was walking along the street one day and met a lady who informed me that there were three little children of her acquaintance in desperate eircum stancesand entirely without assistance. She begged me to look after them, stating that their father had been only requirement being destitution. This its name imports; it is for 'who soever' needs its care and aid." since the institution of this heaven born home over three hundred boys and girls have been taken from condi tions of poverty, have been cared for, educated and sent out into the world with Christian independence and firm belief in the right to make their way in life. The children of soldiers are also cared for without regard to the color of the uniform worn by the vet eran father. In discussing this feature of the work Dr. Wharton says: "We care for the children of sol diers also, and are now planning to build a large stone house to bear the BALDWLN-FRAZIEK WEDDING.

Not knowing what to do, I called to sec" a widow lady of my acquaintance who had a very comfortable home and no one living with her except her niece. I proposed to them to take these little children upon the condition that I would be responsible for their board and clothing. They asked for time to cimsider the proposition and a week later agreed to take them. 'In less than a year there were twenty and In three years sixty little children to lie cared fur. We had to change our quarters twice in order to get more comfortable places. Having a small farm near Luray, Virginia, in my possession, 1 determined to move these children to that point on account of the healtht'ulness of the place and the possibility of separating them from all Influences that were not of the best character.

All Reciprocity Treaties Will be Defeat ed in the Senate. Senator Vest of Missouri believes that the next presidential election will be fought out with the demo cratic party In line for reduction of the tariff and the republicans for pro tection, they by that time Laving thrown aside all idea of reciprocity. In an interview given out at Wash ington a day or two since Mr. Vest said: "Republicans don't want tariff revision, and they don't want recip rocity that touches a single protected item on the tariff schedule. I don't know a republican leader who dares to stand behind a specific scheme of tariff reductions designed to encourage the foreign commerce of the United States." Senate- Vest said that his belief at present is that all the reciprocity treaties will be rejected, and the re publicans in the senate will stand firm against any change in the tariff. Concerning the miich-talked-of sup port of republican members of con gress of the late President McKinley's reciprocity policy Senator Vest said: "There is no such support on the part of republican leaders in either house. Some of them talk of recip rocity, but they mean protection all the time. I believe Mr. McKinley had reached the conclusion that some tariff changes ought to be made for the sake of advancing foreign trade, but it is a question what would have happened had lie lived . No one can say whether his influence would have been sufficiently strong to alter the attitude of his party. People who want tariff changes need not look to the republican party for them. "If anybody wants that sort of tiling he must look to the democratic party. The tarill is to stand as it is for the present. How , long it Is to stand, I don't know, but there Is an I important democratic opportunity In in the present attitude oof the republi can party toward the tariff and recip rocity. A strong and distinct Issue for the next presidential campaign grows out of this republican attitude." Ollicers Elected. At the recent meeting of the United Daughters of tin! Confederacy, held at Wilmington, 'orth Carolina, the fol lowing ollicers were elected: Mrs. II. A. Iionnsaville, Home, Ga., president; Mrs. Mollie Maglll Rosen berg, Galveston, Tex., vice-president; Mrs. T. J. Latham, Memphis, Tenn., recording secretary; Mrs. Virginia F.
