Below our renders will find a con
densed report of Rev. T. R. Kentlall’%
sermon of last Sunday morning. These
are practical ' truths taught which if
followed will briDg light and gladness
into many homes and hearts.
“To make every day events the
chariots for carrying sublimcst truths
home to the hearts of the hearers was a
peculiarity of the. preaching of Christ.
He would speak of special providences,

clothing as well as food, and He plucks

reins of "ommon events and fitting to
the backs of these passing steeds the
most costly merchandise of gospel truth
He entered the open gateway of atten
tion thus arresced, and took hold upon
the hearts of His.aadfence.
THE KKCHANTING SEASON.
Looking out upon the enchanting
forests about Atheus, the blooming
and diversified beauties of hill
and dale at this season and seeing that
the marvellous transfiguration going
on is due to the changing l> af, might
not our Lord, if present, take for a text
“We all do fade as the leaf.” Crop-
sey’s Autumnal Sketches are tame in
comparison with the rich pageantry the
season is now spreading upon nature’s
canvas about us. Oak, hickory, elm,

work so magically that ihe trees seem
btthed in carnage of blood or flashing
with living fire.
FACES OF THE WOODS.
How few appreciate the wonders of
the leaf, its nerves, veins cells their
sizes, shapes, scollops and angles, all
making these variegated faces of the
woods as interesting as the countenances
of people. Leaves of the water liiy of
the Amazon are twenty feet in circum
ference and bear upon the water a
weight of twenty pounds. The palm
tree of India dresses in leaves thi
feet in circumference.

No wonder when God would send
Moses to deliver Israel He appears in
the burning leaves of a bush. Why
should it surprise us that when
King David must be advised when to
attack his enemies, God sends the
message to go forward, by the leaveB of
the mulberry trees. Is it not among
the sweetest and most graphic descrip
tions o! heaven that wc read of tne
“leaves” that shall be for the healing
of the nations.
HOW TO GBOW OLD.
As “we all do fade as the leaf,” let
us learn first the lesson—how to grow
old. Notice bow variedly the leaves
fade. Some wither, blur, and scowl at
the first touch of frost.
Others glow brighter, cheerier, pret
tier till they drop from the stem. How
differently people grow old. Some be
come sour others sweeter, some take
melancholia, others become more cheer
ful, some gee ugly, o'hers more beauti
ful till the last. Some become- more
charitable, others miserly, boarding all
that they can lay bauds on tor selfish
ness. Some open their hands wider and
wider to every claim of Christianity
and benevolence, others lose confidence
in God and their race and entering the
region of selfishness shut the door
behind them and go posting
to ruin in a misanthropic car.
AN OPEN SECRET.
The secret of advancing in life with
brighter and fuller illustration of the
mind of Christ in our lives is supremely
importer* for the honor of our Savior
and our own peace and happiness.
You ask, In w? We answer the mys
terious fountain of soul-life resides in
the heart Keep this spring rich and
sweet and it will be hard ever to feel
old. Live in the 13th cf 1st Corinthians.
Love is the fountain of perpetual youth
after which the ages have sighed and
sought. The soul that
abides consciously grafted
into Christ can no more grow old than
our Savior can change.
Many of the youngest, loveliest,
cheeriest and most companionable peo’
pie of this earth, are those who have
passed their three score and ten.
Their love to God and ma has touched
them even in this life with a heavenly
baptism of eternal youth. J

ninety years old who told Indian stories

Gainesville, Ga., Oct. 9th 1891 —

Our fairs are voted for their agricultu

At San Francisco Over tbe Activity at I that the palllOtic, inclination of l*r.
New Yoby, Nov. 10.—Not since the
close of the civil war has there been
such activity in getting war vessels
ready fur tea. .Matters had been going
along at the navy yard in the usual
slow fashion, when a clerk entered Cap
tain Erhen’s office with a telegram.
The captain yawned as he opened the
envelope, but the first few words made
him break his yawn in two, and in an
instant orders were flying thick and
fast, to the heads of the various me
chanical departments. The telegram
was from Secretary Tracy, ordering
every- war ship to be made ready for
service as speedily as possib.e. Special
orders weregiveu for forcing work on
the MiantOuomoh. She is the strongest
war vessel in our navy, aud the only
one, according to the opinion of naval
officers, that is fit to engage in battle
with the Chilian torpedo fleet.
She is a massive, formidably lookidg
vessel aud and a regular battering-ram.
She carries two 20-incU breach-loading
rifles in each turret. Each gun weighs
57,00 1 pounds, aud is capable of throw
ing a 500 pound shot a distance of thir
teen miles, and bnrns 255 pounds of
powder at eavh discharge.
It is thongnt she can be sent away
by the last of this week. Work is be*
iug pushed on all other vessels in the
naVy yard. In the forts down at the
Naarows the same activity prevails,
out orders having been received there from
the war department. The working
forces are doubled, and ammunition of
all kinds is being gotten ready with a
the Various Navy Yards.
San Francisco, Nov. 10.—The fact
that the work at the navy yards at
Brooklyn and Mare Island is being
pushed both ou Sunday and at sight,
has created some excitement here.
The defenses of San Francisco against
an attack from the sea are not espe
cially good. There is not a single mod
ern rifle here. Ft. Point, at the en
trance to the Goldeu Gate, has about
fifty eight-inch muzzle-loading rifles,
converted from ten-inch smooth
bores. On the Alcatraz there are
eight or nine more; there are
also a large number of 10 and 15 inch
smooth bores. It is not believed that
these guns could delay the enemy from
entering the hay for any considerable
length of time. Only the extreme west
ern i»art of the city, where there are a
few valuable buildings, could be shelled
without coming within close range of
these guns. The harbor is well pro
tected by torpedoes, of which there are
600 or 700 iu position, or ready to be
placed. There are no auto-mobile tor
pedoes in the city. Two modern rifles
have been promised to Sau Francisco
next year aud two the year after.

After all, there is much wisdom in
this speech. Stop to think about it
and one must conclude that wbia
kers are going out of style in poli
tics these late days of reform and
Democratic gain. Just bow to ac
count for this new fashion among
politicians is no easy matter.
It may have been handed over
from the dramatical world, since all
the great actors wear clean faces that
they may act their paits well on the
stage. Or it may be taken from the
customs of the pugilist, since they
always shave their faces dean for
the ring. Again, this political fash
ion may have had its origin with the
commonly accepted dtolaratioo that
‘‘the young men are taking the coun
try,” and the politicians desire to all
AS TO CLEVELAND.
There is just now a great cry in
the rankB of the Democratic party
In New England the cry sounds
louder than anywhere else, and it is
said in the newspapers that New
York has harmonized upon Cleve
land’s name at last.
There is plenty of time yet to think
over these matters, and it would
be well to go slow with forming con
clusions., It is best to let things
ke their course. Mr. Cleveland is
not strong in the South nor in the
West, because of his confessed op
position to the free coinage of silver
which these sections are demanding.
He is a good Democrat with all that*
how* ver, and it isn’t worth while to
whip him out of the party.
The Democracy must look for a
man who has the confidence and the
esteem of the whole country. A man
whose record is without even sus
picion, and a man who is in sympa
thy with the great movemeat now
afoot looking to a wise and liberal
expansion of the coi nvry’o currency
These are the demands. Now let
the parly go cautiously- about se
