—•'l like your paper ▼fry well, but I am
not able to subscribe for it any longer."
That is the answer to one "dun," as some
call them. Here is another: "Brother C. 1
regret that I have got so poor that I can't
take your good and interesting paper."
Here is still another: “Dear brother—l am
very sorry that I gave you cause to write to
me concerning The Index, (that much loved
paper). lam too poor in this world's goods
to take any paper, but it is such a comfort
we have made sacrifice for its sake and our
own. lam very, very glad you were so kind
as to remind me of my duty.” That sounds
like the talk of an Edwards and a Christian.
"Should like a month’s rest, but race
horses.—not dray-horses,—get the rests."
Now you want to know who said that. Well,
we are not going to tell you, for you would
then call him “(Day-horse" all the time. It
was not Peter Grubbs, though.
—"My motto, dear brother, as a stranger
in a strange land is, ‘to know nothing but
Christ and him crucified,’ among the people,
native, and Northern, and foreign." So
writes a minister recently from New York,
who is doing a good work.
—"What do you think of a member of a
church who is absent at least two thirds of
the time, and when asked by a n ember why
he did not attend, replied, ‘because a certain
brother asked him for money for some pur
poses of the church every time he went?’’’
Our opinion is that that brother ought to be
prayed for and instructed, and if he does
not do better, open the door and let him out,
that he may go to the anti missionaries.
—We are glad to know that our selection
of a chandelier and banging (pulpit) lamp,
for the church at Micanopy, gave satisfac
tion. We can recommend all who desire
anything in that line, to F. W. Mumby &
Co., of our place. We are ready to serve
others In making selections for them of
chandeliers or lamps for their churches.
—The following we take from a letter we
received from that old soldier, now almost
done working, Elder K. Chambers, It
touches—it moves us : “1 am feeble. I got
overheated two days by plowing too late in
the hot sun. ... I have no one to work
only as I hire, and I have five in family be
sides three little orphan grand-children. . .
I want to go out into the vineyard of the
Lord to work when my crop is over. I in
tend, when I die, to be missed."
—Sister Janie Borders sends usfivedollars
for missions, and made the money thus:
“Three years ago I planted some orange seed,
and promised to give to the Lord the tenth
part, like they did in old times. I cultivated
them myself, and this spring sold the trees,
and as soon as I received the money, I sent
this to you.” An orphan child did that! A
female, too 1 No one need tell us they can’t
do anything for missions.
—“ I hope to be able to send, at some fu
ture time, something for your 'lndex Fund,’
for I love the paper, its editorsand contribu
tors, and I want everybody to read it.”
Thank you, young sister.

Geiger, at Cedar Keys, lias left us for bis

Cedar Keys is almost paralyzed with sorrow

“Melrose, July 13th, 1881,”
But what an inheritance left to that little
band in so short a time, in the lives of Ever

they did. Jesus has taken them, and He

—“Bev. W. N. Chaudoin, of Jacksonville,
President of the Baptist State Convention,
and Corresponding Secretary of State Mis

Mays, also of Jacksonville, visited Apopka
City Saturday last, remaining over until
Monday afternoon. They both entertained
our people with sermons, delivered in the
new Baptist church, and notonly entertained
them, but instructed and blessed them with
the good things of the gospel. They suc
ceeded in raising some money, we do not
know how much.”
The above kind notice, copied from the
“Citizen,” of Apopka, is, with these few
words, all perhaps we will have to say about
our exceedingly enjoyable visit. Only the
absence of their beloved pastor, on account
of the illness of bis wife, detracted from the
visit. The new church edifice will stand as

THE CHRISTIAN INDEX AND SOUTH-WESTERN BAPTIST: THURSDAY, AUGUST 4, 1881.
Dear Uncle Joab : I promised to tell you
about our pastor-to give you a sketch of his
life and character. From him 1 learn the
particulars to which I shall now give expres
RufUs Corban Is the oldest child of Susan
and John Corban, who are descendants of an
old Scotch family, who, years ago. when the
West was all pioneer country, migrated to
Kentucky, where Rnfus was born, reared and
educated. Much to the surprise and chagrin
ot bls oarents, Rufus, after having received
his education, which specially looked to the
ministry, for they, from thebeginning, had
consecrated him to the Lord to be one who
should go In and out before the people to pro
claim the tenets of the Presbyterian faith, re
nounced the faith of his parentsand became
a Baptist. Feeling called of God to the work
of the ministry, the young man, after much
earnest struggle, laid hlmselfandall upon the
altar. It would do you good to bear the dear
old man tell of the great struggle through
which be passed on the night when faith
triumphed and he was enabled to say, “Here
am I,send me."
Knowing well the 'horoughneas of their
son’s character, bls good parents, after re
monstrating, submitted to his wish, and, all
together kneeling, gave the young man up
freely to the work to which he felt himself
called. He Is unflinching in bls adhesion to
duty. “When duly calls or danger threatens"
then he Is never wanting. He esteems not
even bls life dear lor Christ Jesus his Lord
who loved him so.
He entered the ministry In Kentucky, where
he labored with zeal and success until bis de
cline In health forced bls removal to Florida.
He has been serving the weak churches, and
untiringly laboring tor the Master ever since
he came here. Being a pioneer preacher, he
Is thoroughly acquainted with pioneer life
and its discouraging and encouraging feat
He la, In his general make-up, very much
like cousin Joe Stokes, and in his face and
manners, like Uncle Sam Kipps. He posses
ses all the qualifications of a good preacher
and pastor. Deeply pious, eminently practi
cal In hl« preaching, logical In thought and
learned la the Bible and theology. But It
makes me sad every time 1 hear him; his
voice is so weak, and such an effort for him
to preach. But at times he overcomes that
weakness and soars to heights of eloquence
rarely excelled. Nature and grace have made
him a man, but disease has sorely circum
scribed him. If Judged according to that law
by which some people judge greatness, he
would be very email, for some people think be
cause a preacher has a “big voice” he Is a big
man, and If bls voice is poor, be Is no man al
all. Buch ought to studv Paul. When he turns
his attention to. and Axes bls thought upon,
a theme, one may rest assured that what lie
has to say Is worthy of attention. He la so
modest and retiring : does not often go from
home: seldom attends great gathering!.
What a pity 1
He is sueb a good man. As pastor he tries
very hard to please us all. He has a long dis
tance to ride to get to us, but just as surely as
Friday morning comes, just so sure Is the
coming of our pastor. He Is nearly always
on time, and comes at Just the same gait—
riding the same black mule: goes to deacon
Scotts and puts up bls mule, gets his big cup
of coffee aud a little something to eat, and
then off he goes to see everybody in the town.
The people here do not half way appreciate
him ; If they do they have such a poor way
.of manifesting it. I will relate an incident to
show what 1 mean: Last Saturday afternoon
J was sitting on my front porch enjoying the
delightful fragrance of the flowers and the
songs of the mocking birds that are hatching
In our shade-trees, and awaiting the coming
of our pastor, when 1 heard a shrill cry which
came from a neighbor’s house some hundred
yards distant >t was the cry of a woman,
who said : “It Is a good thing you came here
to-day, for If you had not 1 was going to get
really mad with you I You hardly ever come
to see me; you go to see everybody else but
me; yon always put me off till last, aud
when you do do come you don’t stay but five
minutes; but you can go to Mr. Jones’s and
stay two hours 1 I know why it Is; you thluk
they are rich and I am poor. I watch you;
you need not think I don’t I You can stay all
night at Scotts, but you never stay with us!"
She had agooddeal moretosay. Ah, thought
1, “Wnat silly mortals some men be I” How
injudiciously some people use their tongues I
Really, my curiosity got the betterof me, and
I had to Jump up to see whom she was abus
ing at such rates. Just then 1 saw the man of
God ascend the porch steps and extend bls
cruel hostess his hand. She ought to have
known that she was telling a falsehood. 1
have repeatedly noticed that he almost Inva
riably stays there thirty minutes, Just about
the same length of time he stays everywhere
else. I could not understand this speech, sol
made it my busluess to ask him, when he
came, what she meant. “Ab,” said he, at the
same time heaving a sigh, “I do not know
what to do with the dear soul. She quarrels
with me every time I go there, and every time
I leave. She is ever talking about how the
Baptists slight her because sue is poor—she Is
sick and none ever go—she Is troubled and
none ever come;—this one hasdoneso-and-so
and so-on. It is disagreeable to me to go
there. It hurts me, yet I cannot stop going.”
Now, Uncle Joab, If I did not know the wo
man I would believe her to be a regular vix
en. It Is only away she has. This I told my
pastor, and much more which encouraged
and cheered him. I told him she did not
mean It—that she adored him almost—that
she resents with zeal every effort from an
other which underrates her pastor; she says
what she feels like to him,but she allows none
to talk about him to her,—lf she hears aught
against him she does all In her power to
silence the talk.
Don’t you think this a bad way for one to
do? I have made up my mind to talk with
her on this way of doing, and to do my best to
Influence her to stop It. I know she will
-when she hears that It Isa source of grief to
him. If I were a pastor, I certainly would not
call often to see peopleof this class.
Next Sunday we will hold our first Sunday
prayer-meeting. This is the outgrowth of
some of my efforts. The brethren all say I
must always lead, and they glvemethe privi
lege of reading them a sermon, or making a
talk. Don’t you think this a good Idea?
Much better to go to our own church and try
to worship God than to stay at home and do
nothing. All promise to attend. I have It In
mind to write a sermon or lecture on "The
duty of church-members to their pastor” to
read to them at one ot our gatherings. Do
you think It would be a good Idea? It will
probably have more effect coming from me, a
layman. After 1 have written it I will send it
to you for your approbation and criticism.
But I must close. Give our love to Aunt Bat
tle. Johnnie says “tell Uncle Joab that I am
going to be a preacher."
