That their conversion was genuine Is evidenced by what they did: 1. "Continued steadfastly In the apostles* doctrine" (v. 42). Continuance and steadfastness sre Infallible proof* of the genuineness of one's conversion. They not only were steadfast, but they kept themselves In the school of Christ?came regularly to the meetings to be Instructed by the apostles. Christians cannot grow unless tbey feed upon Ood'a word. Trashy novels and story papers will not make Christians grow. The "sincere milk of the word" Is essential to growth (I Peter 2:2). ' 2. Kept themstlTM In the fellowship of the apostles (v. 42). This doubtless means tha* they atached themselves to the church and ought the friendship of Christian p*o le. Christlun crowth Is h?lp d by *s oclntlon vlth Christian people, not by Ithrtrawol. Ope who expect* sanctiucntlon in seclusion will be doomed to disappointment. 3. They went regularly to the com mnnlnn table (r. 42). Io the "breaking of bread" they symbolically fed ur?n rhrlst. True wor> shlpers will not ne-lect this moans of ?rac#. 4.

Out of the beautiful fellowship of this early elivrch grew a pertiliar difficulty. Ati'ojtr :he Grecian Jews there come a feelinrr that partiality had town shown in the <i;* rIhution of funds. The difficulty wi.s reci.gnlaed at onee and , properly dealt with. The apostles re- ' fused to allow this to divert their min- , Istry, so they proceeded with the Inl- \ tial organization In the church, the ap- j polntment of deacons. We have here aet forth the qnaliflrntlon* of those i who are to look after the business end I of the church. 1. Good report (T. 8). It Is highly Important that eren the business affairs of the church should be In the hands of honest men. The church cannot afford to appoint men of doubtful reputation to do such work. 2. Full of the holy spirit (r. 3). The temporalities of the church should only be entrusted to splrlt-filled i men. 8. Full of wisdom (r. 3). The highest wisdom la required In the handling of the business side of church life, and this should be done by 1 men other than mMstera. Ministers , should glre themselves to prayer and preaching. ' - .vyM| - ;m Bible and education. Men rannot be well educated with* out the Bible.

I continue the final paragraph of your letter to mean you decline to cooperate with me In securing the printing of the ballots earlier than has been customary In the past and tn placing them in the hands of the egistrars to forward them to soldier applicants in time for the ballots ot be returned before Election Day, you saying this scggestlon is "made in the teeth of t..t Statute and the decision of the Su preme Court of Appeals." You evldntly are of the opinion a Statnte once made can not be repealed either by implication o( by express provision, or that a new and different Statute does not obviate a Court Decision based upon a Statute that has been repealed. Again I am compelled to disagree with you. it ioc nest Virginia men uuuer arms are disfranchised it will fee be cauae the eglstrars and ballot Commissioners follow your advice and refuse to give them an opportunity to rote. For my part I shall assume that Socialists, Prohibitionists, and all others will not only" read the Soldier's Ballot Law and "construe it liberally, so as to give it full fores and Sect," and that they will file their nominations, If they desire to make any, and Oil vacancies, If there are any on their tickets, at an early date, but also tbat the ballot Commissioners will likewise construe the law In the same way and will place the Soldiers' ballots In the hands of the Registrars, as the law required, In ample time for them to he voted by the soldiers and returned before election day. That, to my mind, la tbslr Imperative duty under the law and certainly their patriotic duty as well.
