He began >y telling them that ho was not going <o follow the beaten path of such oc? casions. He preached on "The end >f unrighteousness." The sermon Vas clear, pithy, pointed. The following local preachers had Jieir license renewed: E. J. Nichol lon, Henry Hunt, E. B. Carey, D. B. t*rettyman and Lawrence A. Smith. The next District Conference will ie held at Wachapreague. That is a iplendid place to go to, especially in ihe summer. A large number of the charges re? ported conversions. The greatest number was reported to Dr. T. N. Potts, of Salisbury. He reported 102 professions of faith and 86 added to his church on profession. There they have recently completed and dedi? cated a new church that cost $60,000. There is considerable improvement in building and repairing all over the district. In addition to those men? tioned last week we note, Bethel ('burch, at Jamesville, Temperance ville Church and a new parsonage at Berlin. Cambridge expects to build a new Sunday school room to cost $9,000. They have $3,500 in hand. When Rev. W. C. Vaden, of Onan? cock, reported, he prefaced his re? port by referring to his kind reception there and told pathetically of their interest shown him while ill in the hospital. All were glad to hear him say that he was in good health again. Rev. R. C. James preached an im? pressive missionary sermon. Mrs. Madeline Mapp Stockley read a very tine paper on the Woman's Foreign Mission work. Rev. J. A. Winn gave a well prepared address on "Interest? ing the Children in Missions." Rev. W. 0. Vaden preached a very thought? ful expository sermon on "If our hearts condemn us, God is greater than our hearts" etc. Dr. T. N. Potts preached a strong sermon on "Strength, Physical, Mental, Spiritual." Stirring educa? tional addresses were made by R. E. Blackwell, L.L. D., President of R. M. College; Rev. James Cannon, Jr., D. I)., Principal of Blackstone Female Institute; Prof. W. Holmes Davis, Principal of the It. M. Institute at Danville; Prof. E. Sumpter Smith, Principal R. M. Academy, Bedford City, and others. Some are under the impression that the men engaged in the Church school work are not in sympathy with the public school work. Dr. Blackwell made one statement that ought to set the public right on that matter. He referred to the bill that was offered and pressed and that only failed to pass the last Legislature by lack of a quorum. That bill not only looked to improving the primary schools but to establishing good high schools,so that the children of this State may get a high school education without leaving home. He then said: "Dr. Cannon wrote that bill." There is not per se a conflict between the State and the Church schools. They are both work? ing for the elevation of man. The objective point in the State school is "Citizenship." The objective point in the Church school is "Christian? ity." They are both uplifting. Both are aiming in the same direction. One is simply aiming higher than thc other. Among the laymen that made re? ports?L. J. Hyslup made the report on the Orphanage and Geo. T. Hus? ton on Church Finance. Robert J. Hill and Harry T. Todd were licensed to preach. Rev. E. J Nicholson was recommended to thc Annual Conference for Deacons Or ders. The following lay members wer* elected to represent the district ii the next Annual Conference, whicl meets in Danville Nov. 8th: I. W Mears, George T. Huston, A. S. Mat thews and W. P. Wise; alternates, I L. Price, M. T. Wilson, W. J. Gibl and J. S. Davis. Among the various resolutions o thanks the following was adopted bj a rising vote: "To the pastor an< people of Belle Haven charge and ou sister churches, for their cheerful am bountiful hospitality dispensed to u while among them." The hospitalit; was of that generous, open characte that made all feel welcome and a home. I think special mention shou! be made of Rev. Mr. Friend and o many others not of our church. Fo the time being, at least.the town an community were Methodists and vie with each other in unstinted kine nessos. The writer never had a true friend than the one whose house I ever his home.
