A SENSIBLE VIEW OF AN OLD
In a review of a pamphlet on Bap-
tism the editor of the St. Louis Chris-
tian Advocate writis thus:
Long years ago we examined the
question as host our ability and oppor-
tunity would allow. Since when we
have seen, and to a greater or less ex-
tent examined, perhaps half a hundred
treatises, large or small, some on one
side, some on the other, but found no
rca-uii to ohangft the opinion first, form
ed, which opinion was substantially as
follows: That the command to bap-
tize or be baptizd require 1 a thine/ to
be done—an act to be performed—that
is, fur a proper person to apply water
to a proper subject in the name of the
adorable Trinity—and had no refer-
ence to the mode or manner of doing
that thing. We could not persuade
oureelf that God's ministers were com
manded to do a mode, bit a thing.
Then we regarded the word baptize,
whether in Euglish or Greek or any
other language, as a general or generic;
term that embraced particulars—like
as if one were simply commanded to
«o or travel from one poiut to another,
and the mode or manner of going left
to his choice or convenience. He might,
go by one mode or anoiher, but the
point was to go, and when that was
done the command was obeyed.
'• If any tell us that the Greek word
rendered baptize means immersyorim
mersion, and that only—the reply is:
There is abundant evidence to the con-
"Some of our good friends will tell
us this is all wrong. Well, the respon-
sibility is on us, not on them. We do
not remember to have ever attempted
to write an elaborate article on the
suhject, and in fifty-seven years' active
ministry never de ivered, to the best of
our recollection, but two discourses on
the mode of baptism, and these were
for the benefit of some weak brethren
who were in doubt on the subject. Iu
this and all other non-essentials we are
willing to live and let live, think and
The Chickasaw Conference held its
annual session atSeeley's Springs, June
•Wand July 1, 2. All the circuits but
one were represented. The reports
from preachers showed that the work is
progr ssing well. The assessments are
all in hand, and something over the as-
sessment for foreign missions has been
Religious services were made promi-
nent, an 1 these services were doubtless
profitable to many souls. AH the work

ing of the Word, was done through in-
The Conference was presided over by
Rev. J. L Keener, Presidin? El-'er of
the District. His manner and methods
won the respect and love of all. It
was a disappointment to many that
Bishop Galloway was not present.
The next Conference will be h^ld at
a place six miles from Atoka, and we
hope to have a Bishop wiih up.

A lady in the Sunday Magazine sajs:
1A woman's influence is worth very
little unless the woman is worth some-
thing. It nearly drives me wild to
hear selfish little mixies, who leave
their mother to bear all the household
burdens, and who have not an idea
above their own vanities and levitits,
being: exhorted to lvflect on 'their in-
calculable influence,' instead of being
told to study their own duty and have
their influence to take care of itself."
If Christians feed upon the word of
God, the world will lose its power over
them and we shall be prepared to work
for others. If Christians neglect their
Bibles, they may pray and ask God to
use them, but he will not, for there is
not much in them for the Holy Spirit
to work upon.—Moody.
