If a liy learn from the proph- of “We all do fade as.the leaf.”—Isa. 64’C. 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, declaring egr heavenly Fair’s tender care in providing daily bread for Hia people and the poor little sparrows furnishes a text: The spr rrow of the East was so insignificant that the poor est would scarcely touch it for food, yet Jesus said, “Without storehouse or barn vour heavenly Father feedeth them.” But His believing followers must have clothing as well as food, and He plucks a lily, snowy, velvety and sparkling with dew, saying the wisest man was not dressed so beautifully and “if God so clothes the lily how much more will He clothe you. He watches a farmer sowing grain and the inimitable parable of the sower is taught. A marriage is taking place in the neighborhood and He tells of the “five wise and five fool ish virgins.” Ihe great doctrines taught would doubtless have been given anyway, but our Lord's manner was to seize the 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. airty 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, sweetgum, and other forest belles co-minglicg in their robes orange, gold, saffron, greene drab and scarlet, give us tit our doors gorgious, glowing breathing pictures, in many in-tSLC s t) e frost’s pent il has done its 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. god’s favorite symbol. 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 1 remember a grand-mother over ninety years old who told Indian stories to children and carried a mantle always to throw over everj body’s faults. Ou* - morning she called us all around her and and lying down upon the bed, closed her eyes, saying, “Lord Jesus receive my spirit,” and went up to heaven as in heart as she ever was. love to little children who seem the balance of power youth and body’s the leaf that we all l must fall. If a world-vote was to be cast and the dead could put in a ballot, how far the present generation would he put aside by their decision Some of us bagp come from families noted for longevity but the mining tools of death are delving about us. opening lines of circumvalla- tion to the citadel of life. “Is there anyplace out of Attica Where men do not die?” What shall we do about it? Why, get on such loving terms with our Saviour as to pluck the sting from desfh’s hand. Paul could, lay his heart upon the sharp edge of his scythe and announce “ready to he offered,” declaring that he had no .-ting. My brethren the day is drawing near when it will be said “he indisposed—can’t be to business today.” The next day ft is whispered “he is very sick.” The hum of business will go on, but crape hangs upon the door,the news will be as startling as tho’a fire bell rang out upon the air, “he is dead.” The first Chris tians had but one epitaph on their tombs, “A sleep in Jesus” we too can banish the word death and recogize the would be monster as a friendly slave sent to throw open the gates of endless glory to the soul. THE LIFE BEYOND. Learn thirdly from the leaf the won ders of our resurrection. With the le if’s fall a change of struc- ure begins—disintegrated it enters the rootlets of tree and flower. T he towering oak, waving harvest and ordorous flower far surpass the fallen leaf. So our bodies are bidden away pale and shrunken, but at the sound of the angels trump, shall come forth clothed in beauty and joy forev er. Scatter us among coral reefs, dismember us in battle, cremate us and scatter the ashes to the wind, yet a change of form is not distinction of matter. God’s eye will fullow up ihe sacred dust and I must have these eyes to behold my Saviour and look upon my loved ones, these ears to hear the new songs they sing in heaven and this hand to lake part in the hand-shaking re-union around the Throne of God. “You may bury me in the north, You may bury me in the south, But I’ll hear the trumpet sound In that morning.” May eternity’s nearing ocean bap tize every moment of time, every par ticle of influence, every cent of money, every thought, word and deed, so that all life may become a holy sacrament randsTchilblaTnT. off> red unto the Lord—' as the leaf.” 'we all do fade HARMONY GROVE HAPPENINGS What lour Vigilant Correspondent Finds Newsy In the Grove. Harmony Grove, Ga., Nov. 9.—fSpe cial J—Mr. C. C. Alexander, cur effi cient Postmaster returned home yes terday from a pleasant visit to relatives in Franklin county. Hon. Berry J.

Gainesville, Ga., Oct. 9th 1891 — .The rourth a> nual exhibition of the Gainesville Fair Association opens to morrow with the finest prospects for show yet given by the association. Our fairs are voted for their agricultu ral, stock and industrial displays, and the racing is always of the be-t, as our track is said by turfmen to be the finest in the South. Balloon ascension.parachute leaps and many other exhibitions are among the attractions. Distinguished speakers, among them, Governor Northen has been invited to address the people, and has accepted 1h> fbir will be opened by the Governor. Several noted stables are resented on the grounds with stock to take part in the races. The elegant program for each day, the large premiums in every department and varied attractions always insure S good attendance at our expositions. Half-fare on the railroads and Gaines ville’s noted hospitality, always brings large crowds from the outside, and are already to receive them and care for all come among us, lays aside serious, heavy ideas every now and then long enough to take a humorous view of politics and the like. For instance, an editorial lead* er headed “ The Beard in Politics.” Under this heading the witty editor of the Knquirer-dun writes a* fol lows: It has not been so long ago when a magnificent flowing b;ard was very promiceat in Georgia politics Its owner was a mau of flue presence, great ability-,and kigb> parliamentary skill. While he held high responsi ble positions, there seemed to be 1 limit-to his acquisition of public of flee, even in the Sttfte, and when he reached alter the acknowledged plum the people voted for less beard, a mustache and military goatee flunk ed, it happened, by alghasily scar got in battle. If the statesman -re ferred to bad applied lor a national office there is no telling how little beard would have defected him Suffice it to say that he Aually shaved his golden hea d so that hereafter it might not fl >w in the wuy of his po litical ambition. To come nearer to contemporane ous history, we call a”ention to the hirsute appendage of the candidates who were elected to Governorships last Tuesday. There was doi much beard in the victorious group. Bus sell and LSoies and McKinley are represented as smooth-faced states men, while Flower has only a pair of mutioEs.” Of course there can be no definite rule laid down about the heard in politics, but the beardless candidate seems to have the bulge of late, and and if there is anything in it we hope the National Democratic Convention will take it in hand. If a clean beard is essential we have no doubt 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 rush. EXCITEMENT PREVAILS 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. Buckten’s Arnica saive. Cleveland, wili“£iove him to s'ia ofl his mustache if it should bene" cessary to a great political victory. 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 for Cleveland. 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 ll cling the mau. The Democrats cannot afford to suffer defeat in the next campaign, when victory seems so easily within their grasp. If it develops as the clays-w^ar by that Mr. Cleveland is the strongest can** didate he must be put iu the lead. He is a Democrat, and cannot suffer his personal opinions to govern his official career with reference to the silver question. We do not believe he would, knowing that, his party was not in sympathy with his per sonal views But, if Mr. Cleveland does not ap pear the strongest leader, then it will not be too late to measure Sena*, tor Gorman up to the Democratic yard stick. As for Hill, he is utterly out of the question. The best salve in tbe world for cuts, grow young at least in appearance, bruises, sores, ulcers, salt rheum, fevei And, yet again, perhap»<the most plausible accounting for it is that so many men have been guyed off the stump just by that tantalizing topi ical song, “The wind blows through bis Whiskers.” It is all very straDge aud very funny, but the Columbus Er quirer-Son is right when it sug gests that tbe candidate who goes to win these days, must have no whiskers through which the political winds might blow. ffn "■ =— THE RAIN HAS COME- The rain has coine ; and all tbe earth is glad.
