MUSTN'T PREACH FOR MONEY.
Irimitive Baptist Preacher Must An
swer Charge of Accepting Money
The Fisher's River Primitive Bap
tist Association was In session in
Surry County a few days ago and of
Its proceedings the Mt. Airy News
"The most Important business of
the sessions was that of the question
sent up by another association asking
if this association endorses the doe
trine and practice of Elder James D.
Draughn. It seems that some of the
Primitive Baptist churches are under
the impression that Mr. Draughn is
too much of a "progressive" as some
have expressed it, in his preaching.
They charge that he preaches doc
trine too much like that preached by
other denominations. Just what the
charges are we are not informed suf
ficiently well to under take to give
them, but it is all a question of what
the Primltve Baptist people believe
and what they hold is lawful in the
way of a minister taking money for
his services. It seems that Mr.
Draughn has often gone to churches
in other States, and being a man of
no small ability he preaches the gos
pel in a way that the people pay him,
and report says he gets as much
money for his services as is common
for the people to pay ministers of
other churches. The Primitve Bap
tist people haVe always stood out
firmly against making merchandise
of the gospel and they denounce any
thing like a salary such as is com
mon for ministers to receive in many
of the churches of other denominations.
"The Association decided after a
lengthy discussion that it was not a
question for that body to settle, but
referred the whole matter to Mr.
Draughn's home church, Dover, near
White Plains. The churches "are ex
pected to send delegates, who will
meet With Dover Church and hear
and decide finally any charges that
may he brought against Mr. Draughn.
The time for this meting will be ap

What Are Soil Surveys Worth?

that he who undertakes and carries

gratitude as any other systematlsts

Yes, so far as we know a chemical

necessary. "What are soil surveys ' J3iaies- AUti

in any science, or in the study of any j
related set of facts? What would '
botanits of to-day do had not Lin
naeus, the Swedish botanist, made
his classification .of plants? What
would students of anatomy do to-day
without a systematic classification of
the bones, muscles, and nerves of the
human body? And what would a
course in agriculture be worth to-day
without a knowledge of soils? And
what would a student of agricultural
soils of to-day without the classifica
tion of soils begun by Whitney some
ten or twelve years ago. It is hard
by too much to say that the knowl-'
edge of agricultural soils in the Unit
ed States and, to a great extent, in
the world, bears a direct ratio to the
progress in the proper classification
and mapping of the soils in the Unit
Twenty years ago "pigs was pigs"
and "soils was soils," and no one
knew or cared to investigate any in
trinsic differences existing among
them. Our soil facts were in a most
chaotic condition and remained so
until Whitney came to the rescue and
began to set things in order and to
develop a science of softs hitherto
unknown. True, Mr. King' had done)
much good work on soils but his field
was soil physics pure and simple and
did not touch the all-important class
ification so necessary as a broad
foundation on which to build a real
ly important working knowledge of
soils as related to crop production.
To-day no agricultural college
worthy of the name, would think of
graduating a student In agriculture
without first imbuing him with a
knowledge of the classification of the
soils of his State, and, in a general
way, those of the United States.
Furthermore, there is not an in
telligent answer given to-day to a
question concerning the fertilization
of the soil or the crop adaptation of!
the soil that is not based on a knowl
edge of the given soil type. Soil types
are individuals and must have, to a
large extent, individual treatment.
Therefore, when a farmer writes his
State Department of Agriculture, his
Agricultural Experiment Station, or
the U. S. Department of Agriculture,
concerning the treatment of any par
ticular soil on his farm, the answers;
to his questions, if reliable, are based
on a knowledge of his soil gained '
from a study of the classification of
the particular soil made by the U. S. ,
