AT THE TENT.
The Work of Saving Souls Goes Bravely On, . The largest congregation. t??A hns yet assembled at the morning services greet? ed Dr. White at the Baptist tent yester? day morning. Tho services were opened by singing "Showersof Blessings-" xTfee opening services were'eonductod by Rev. "William Liunstord and the opening prayer was offered by Dr. L. G. Broughtoo. Dr. White then arose and after reading a list of persons w!ho Teqsested the rpray era of the church read a scripture 'lesson from Hebrews, 11th 'chapter, beginning with the 34th verse. The swtojectof his discourse was "The Heroes of F-adth" or "Self Denial," teaching that without lalth nothing could be done, in nur religious, social, business or political world. The success of every undertaking depended upon lH.lth. In part he said: "This," said he, "is tho catalogue of faith. There is no great deed without great faltb. True of business iw well as religion. Moses was a hero of -self-denial. The first step in 'his public -life was to deny himself The throne?refused to be called the son of Pharoah's daughter. Out of this, howbver, came Che greatest blessing ol' bis life. It's so to-day. Can't serve both the world and the'Lord at the barue time. "This is the weak point in our churches. Allowing members to go with the world, dancing, playing cards and such things; you say you go -with them to save them. It's not so. I tell you you can't go with so-cnlled society 'to day and be a child of Christ. Yonr pnnch bowl business is of bell. You society folks can "ctt&s" some of those preaofacrs;*>ou may "cuss" me if you want to, but this thing is ot hei' and the church member who does it is going there. "If your religion don't >raake you will? ing to give money withoat having it pullei out ot you, you are not right. Your work for God is not a willing ser? vice. Wealth iis effervescent. Some peo? ple wfoo have >bullt fine homes in this city can't ?et money enough to 4jet back to Hoanoke to-day. "Pieaaure isithe devil's net. Some of yoi mothers are era zy to get your daugh? ters into so-called 'society.' You think it the meridian of life when she gets there. Oh, shame upon such matters! God have mercy on you'! "Religion is'no -reproach today except from those little upstarts who walk around in the garb of a dude. The y say it's fogy to be a Christian. They laugh at consistent Christianity. I tell you what it reminds mo of?a pap barking at an elephant. -Sensible people attach no reproach to a follower of Christ. "Think of it! Joy in religion! They more tb.au pay for what we give up. What joy thore will be In meeting of old heroes of tbe oross afterj a while. Oh, think of it, Christians! Get ready for that day of reunion'! I've never known God to speak so plainly as He 'has in the last few days :n Roauoke; first, the me? chanic, then the babe, then last, one of the leadinir-citizens of your city. Oh, friends, get ready for Jesus!" NIGHT SERVICES. Tbe opening set vices at. tna Bnptist tent last night wer? conducted by Rev. Win. Lunsford, and the singing was led by J. P. Fllppo. Ae usual the tout was filled to over? flowing and the intercut seemed 'to ibe unabated. The opening prayer was made by Rev. J. B. Taylor, of Salem. Dr. White then announced [services for 10 a. m. and 8 p. m. ta-day, but no ser-. vices Sunday morning: also a special ser- j mon to railroad men Sunday .afternoon at 3:30 o'clock. . j ? Dr. White prefaced fads remarks with a reference to the attack made ou him by the mayor of Macon and spoke of the corruptness of that city's government. He selected his text from Job, 27iAi chap? ter and 13th ver*e: "This in the portion .of the wicked man." "The uncorrupted man i* spiritually . dead and is a wretched man, no matter E:v * __'.__^_?_:_?L._:_? . how ?*>ml or upright he may be. There are *b*t two masters, nud you cannot serve both ?of them. 'He that ?a not for Me Is against Me,'said Christ, and if you are not for Christ in tho fight against sin, you nre agniust Him and tor the devil. You ate in the army ot tho devil end un ?enomy ol Christ's and God will destroy all his enemies. You uro also the enomy of the church, and of yourself. You spend' all your time looking after the things that concern the had and neglect those that concern the soul. Without Christ you are your own worst enemy. You are also a dangerous man. "I am not afraid of a sot; but the busi? ness man who can take his three drinks per day is of far more danger to the ris? ing generation tban the ?ot. Boys fol? low their father, and unless you set them a good example it is hard to lead them aright." He tnen closed his discourse by extend? ing" an invitation to come '.to Christ and twenty-five persons ^professed their fa'th and came forward. The benediction was pronounced by Rev. T. J. Shipuian.

He was sitting in the street late Thurs? day evening when three negroes ap? proached him and rreceiving his condi tion offered to take him somewhere where he would be out of danger from arrest. They walked him a short distance, but soon leit him and as soon as Mr. Kane regained his equilibrium he discovered that a very valuable gold watch whtoh he had on his person was missing.

He Refuses to Deviate From the Course Laid Out Regarding Committees. Washington, .Tune 11.?.Speaker Reed has recently been urged by .many Repub? lican Congressmen to appoint a commit? tee on foreign affairs to consider the Cu? ban (iuer>ti"n; also a committee on bank? ing and currency to consider the bank? ruptcy bill. The Speaker declines to ap? point thest#bommittees for the reason that a single deviation from the course out? lined by him would result in immediate autl insistent demands for the appoint? ment of other committees. The Speaker-is determined that there shall he ro geneial legislation at this,ses? sion of Congress if he can prevent it. He is particularly opposed to indiscriminate prlTate pension legislation. THe says that every Northern member of the House has private pension bills which he wants to have passed, nniL.he might as well ap? point a committee on pensions Jos a com? mittee ou foreign affairs. Moreover, there are many membersTasking .for the appoint incut of ji committee on-coinage, weights and measures because I hey want to bring up hills looking to the agitation of the silver question. Consequently, the Speaker says that be will not deviate from the course which he is pursuing. AIRSHIP COMES TO GRIEF. Nashville, Tenn., June 11.?Yesterday morning Mr. A. W.
