S C. B.RICHARDSON, District Manager, HARRISONBURG, VA. CHURCH AND STATE Fourth of July Makes it Proper to Talk of Our Country. THE SERMON OF REV. D. H. KERN OOODOOCOOOOOOG0000090000Q3 President Roosevelt, Our City Council and Public Free School Claim Speaker's Attention. The Rev. D. II. Kern delivered a highly interesting discourse last night at the M. E. Church, South, oil the text: "Render therefore unto Caesar the things^ which are Caesar's, and unto God the things which are God's" — Matt. 23:21. The" speaker said in part: The enemies of Jesus had combined to ensnare him. The effort was made in a series of questions, theological and'political. The text is his answer to a question by the Pharisees and Iierodians, which was intended to prove him guilty of treason. The question was, "Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar or not?" If he answered "Yes," he would Ih* going against the bitterest prejudices of his people. If he. answered "No," he would be guilty of treason against the Roman government. His answer, so brief and clear, settles forever the Christian attitude toward the relation between Church and State. This has been a troublesome Question during a great portion of 'the history of the Old World. Great struggles have been engaged in between those who have stood for the divine right of the. king and those who have stood for the divine right of the Pope. When the, divine right of tins king had full sway, and the monarch was the head of both Church and State, fch'V wUlllt^'Os.,silenced.,. while vice. i«. largo places ran riot. Where the church was in the supremacy ami monarch». but did the bidding of the Pope then cuino the Spanish Inquisition and the massacres like that of St. Bartholomew's day, which drenched the earth with Protestant, blood. Then came the long black list of hellish doings by the authority of the church in the name of religion. From such tyrannies of Kings and Popes our forefathers fled to this new world. Here was established' afresh the doctriuo, not of tlio (¿Vine right of the king, nor tlio divine right of the Pope, but of the divino right of the people. The President and the Bishop are the servants of the people. The church and the state, the two independant arms of the divino government, each doing His will in its own peculiar way without interference from the other. We have just past the glorious Fourth of July, which makes it proper for us to think and talk about our country. I agree with the Fourth of July orator who declares that this is the grandest country under the sun. Patriotism—love of one's country—is one of the highest virtues. "Breathes there a man with soul so dead, Who never to himself hath said, This is my own, my native land?" We owe it to our country to honor its institutions. Our Christian law Book requires us to be loyal citizens. Jesus and Panl are illustrious examples of citizenship. They both obeyed the laws of the government. under which they lived, and when the representatives of that government f;euteuced them to death, they bowed without-murmuring in submission to its authority. We ought to respect our government's representatives. ' The occupant of the presidential chair is our President, whatever be our political affiliations. We should not speak disrespectfully of him, but give to him our loyal support- as long as he is our President. The governor of the state is our governor. They who are in authority in the town—whether mayor, councilnien, or whatever offices—are our representatives, and we sliould not detract from the dignity and influence of the offices they hold by indiscriminate criticism or thoughtless accusations. One of the most important institutions of our country, peculiar to it, i: our public school system. This system rests upon the theory that intelligence is our safeguard. The object is to make an intelligent citizen of every child and give to each a ehanco to win in the battle of life. In our town we havo, as far as ( know, a model public school. The management and teaching are in the hands of competent and conscientious citizens. The public school is worthy of your support. A republican form of goveiiment can exist only amongst intelligent people. And free public schools art» the only moans of educating tlu> masses of the people. We owo it to our country to preserve these institutions wisely founded and bravely defended by our forefathers, and to hand them down to our posti r-ity. But, while we rondel- to Caesar the tilings that arc Caesar's, while we honor our rulers, and obey the laws, we must not fail to render to God the things that are His. We owe. gratitude first to God for our country. Whatever there is of fertility in our valleys or mineral wealth in iitjjpmonntains was put there by His 4)uiuitiful hand. And, more than this, wo luv'o thought", perhaps, are we imlebted to God for our civil and religious liberty. As Bishop Galloway points out in his lectures on Christianity and the Nation, the handof6>od is manifest in our nations's history. A flock of birds turned Columbus away from the coast of North Carolina toward Cuba, and saved this country from the tyranny of Roman Catholicism, which for centuries had been'the ruination of the people of th(! Antilles. It was the hand of God that led the Protestant Christians who have made' this the greatest nation of the world instead of groveling in the ignorance and revel of Catholicism which has for so long H'en t he curse of South America. Through the revolution God guided our little army, and in answer to the prayers of Washington and his fellow patriots,•brought victory to otir armies', --•ximnwin tnru ¡¿«iiil Crt.lift'ofHin; oiW war, ,'lten the ilestiuy of the Union hung vn the balance, God did not forsake us. Maybe it was to preserve the Union that He permitted "Stonewall" Jackson's removal, not by bullets of the enemy, but of his friends, for while Jackson's genius and courage and prayers stood in the way, the cause of the Union could not triumph. And surely God could not let Jackson be overcome, so he took him away to join the triumphant army in the skies. Let us thank God for the blessings of our great country, and let us follow the teachings of the Book and the example of our Lord and His chief Apostles in exhibiting the highest and purest patiotism and citizenship. ♦ • ♦ ......

CARRIED GUN, Mayor Assessed Him $20 and Costs for Doing So. Robert Thompson, a young man living eigth or ten miles northeast of town, was arrested Friday afternoon by Policemen Davis and Reiter, charged with carrying a concealed weapon. This fellow and several others were fighting on East Market street, near L. P. Ott's store, when the officers arrived on the scene. He was seen to transfer an object very much like a pistol from one pocket to the other. One of the officers stepped up to him and pulled the pistol from his pocket, at the same lime placing him under arrest. In the police court Saturday till 1 mayor, after reviewing the evidence, fined him $•>() and costs, "Tate" Rhodes, Iiy whom lie is employed, going his security. Strange to say, Thompson swore 011 the witness stand that ho did not know that lie had the gun, and that he had never seen it before, He supposed that some friend had placed it there to protect, himself in the fight. Evidently the mayor (lid not look at the matter in the same light, and the- friend's act, although p.olmbly done ill kindness was rather costly. Thompson might well exclaim, "Do-liver me from my friends and I will take care of my enemies." Fletcher's linger Ale. • • ♦ Lato Arrivals at Rawley.

On Friday, July 1th, "Buck" Mc-Williams of near Tiniberville was arrested by special officer W. R. Bowman for carrying two guns concealed in B. Ney's hitching yard. The man had sworn Tit his brother and pointed the pistiol iu his face at Kavanaugh's bar. Tins officer, being informed' of this, searched him and found the weapons on him. The Mayor released the man the same yvening 011 his own recognizance to appear Saturday morning at 10 o'clock. He did not appear and it is supposed he does not intend to until forced by the power of the law.

Richmond, Ind., July (i. Frederick Hamilton, a young man, has patented an autoi^itic carriage for rural mail boxes that,*TNvill carry mail directly into tl lion of (he farmer as soon as it lias b<-.a ^ .ted in the box by power'' 'The moilei^'sllows 'fVvo's'ni'i'iY batteries beneath the mail box in a separate compartment. Tlio carriage, which runs to and fro along a wire stretched to the house, remains within the mailbox when not iu use. When a letter or paper is dropped into the hox by the carrier It falls directly into the carriage, which is automatically "tripped" anil sent on its journey toward the house, at the same time causing an electric bell to be sounded within the house. The arrangement is so perfected that the carriage will directly enter one of the rooms that may lie on a direct line with the road. When the farmer desires to mail a letter he will push a button, which brings the carriage to him, and, diqiositing the missive, he will raise a small Hag on the carriage, which is then »out back to the box. Tho flag is a signal for the carrier to take out mail before depositing any. Mr: Hamilton says that the device will work any distance, and that it is possible for farmers living a quarter or half a mile from the road to get service without having to walk the distance. Mr. Hamilton also says that lie has been offered a large sum for the right to manufacture his machine by the Westilighouse Electrical Company, but has declined to sell. *»* A Change.
