A young friend who liaa been spend

Mediterranean, as the guest of the Direc

vein so delightfully boyish and
yet so brim full of the Ameri

The Herald. He says:

Palermo is a town of about 150,000
inhabitants, who are divided between
the hideously jawr, the clergy, and the
nobility, some of whom are worth quite
a good deal. One of the richest men in
July (much richer than the King, by
the way) lives here. They say he is
worth $50,000,000, which is a much
bigger fortune here than it would be in
the United States.
The town is situated in a sort of ani-
•hitheater of hills, and is divided by
wo streets, the Via Mageada and the
’ia del Como, which run from side to
side, and end to cud, and meet in the
middle, dividing the town into four

LETTERS TO PREACHERS.
BY ZEKE JOHNSON
The way to preach ia to. prtocA, not
declaim or say over a piece of nice com
position. The preacher mist be thor
oughly in earnest, and know wlut
intends to say, or he will
fail to move men. I lore to hear a
preacher that is in earnest and makes
feel. Heaven pity a man who can
dare try to preach when he is not in
earnest! Declamation fills the ear,
style pleases the eye, lta& earnestness—a
soul on fire with interest—reaches the
heart To be thoroughly in earnest is to
be thoroughly eloquent 1 hare been
told by a preacher that the way to know
what you intend to talk about is to study,
and the way to be in earnest is to pray.

heard an old man preach jifth iriuch

made his hearers feel it, too,*: I wonder
ed at the old man’s eloquence. and pow
er, but the mystery was
night I overheard him at hiVpriiJile de-
votions, and the earnestness of his pray
er was equaled only by the’'earnestness
of his sermon. Every succeAftj|, preach
er is an curnest one. If youfcAre not in
earnest—deeply in earnest about your
preaching—get in earnest, and if you
find that imposible why quit. It is per
fectly incredible that any min who feels
that the destiny of souls hong upon his
words should be indifferent to the im
portance of his work or cgrclcss as to
words he speaks. The preacher who can
habitually go to Ills pulpit without faith
ful preparation and earnest prayer hu*
the best of reasons to question his fitness
for the sacred office. I know there is a
theory among premiers ofa/cjitain class
that preparation in unnecessary, and
that the Lord will inspire them for the
occasion. If such preachers could have
a few of their sermons reported and put
in cold print, just :is they delivered
thorn, I imagine they would stop accus
ing the good Lord of any such inspira
tion. I have heard such a preacher say
he was going to say just what the Lord
gave him to say and then in conclusion
pray the Lord to “forgive all he had said
amiss” ! So he did uot believe himself.
Be simple. The greatest of truths can
be told in the simplest words. And
God said, “Let there lie light, and there
was light” How snblime that sentence
of tnonosylables is! I once heard a
young preacher begin a sermon this way:
“A celebrated scientist has said ‘Life is a
transition from our incoherent heteroge
neity to a coherent homogeneity through
multifarious disintegrations,” and it
tickeled the school children wonderfully.
Some preachers are like the one des
cribed by a little girlr “Mamma, Mr.
Blank is the smartest preacher I ever
heard!”“ Why, toy child?” “Because
I cannot understand what he says.” To
make a pretense of great learning is
silly and sinful. Learned men never
do it Very few of the masses of the
people use or even know the meaning,
and the affectation of the pedantic
preacher ia all lost on the
should know the meaning of all the
words in the dictionary—ay
knew all languages, especially Greek
and Hebrew; so everybody can under
stand when he preaches. It is said
Spurgeon’s favor lies in«his earnest, hon
est simplicity. He simply believes what
he tells the people with all his heart,
aad does his utmost to persuade and
convince them. He has great faith, not
in Spurgeon but in Spurgeon’s Savior.
This is a qualification that cannot be got
in school houses, colleges nor books.
Faith in what you preach Is essential to
earnestness as well aa to honesty. A
who will preach what he doubts, or
docs not believe, for either ap
plause, honor or pay is a miserable
hypocrite, and unworthy of confidence.
He who can trifle with God and the
souls’of men ia inexpressibly bad. Be
sure you believe what you preach.

Capt. U. Dart, of Brunswick, Presi

with Major J. A. Boyle, of Brunswick,
acting as Secretary. After licing called
to order, Rev. Mr. Qnarteruian, of Wav-

Col. J. L. Sweat, the i>opular presi
dent of the Waycross C. V. A., then
made, to an appreciative aud cuthusi-
astic-audienco, the following appropriate
ADDRESS OF WELCOME.
Mr. President:—Owing to its cen
tral position and superior railroad facili
ties, as wull us tlte proverbial hospital
ity of her people, Waycross has fre
quently been selected as the place of
meeting of various organizations, and on
many ot these occasions the pleasing
duty has been assigned me of extending
cordial welcome on her behalf.
While words of welcome uttered by
ie on these occasions have not been
merely formal, but expressions ot the
real genuine feelings entertained by our
people, voiced and felt by me, yet in the
performance of the duty assigned me at
this hour, I come into this presence with
emotions not felt on ordinary occasions.
When I remember the stirring scenes
of ’til to ’65, recalling the time when at
country’s call the chivalric sons of
the Soutn, leaving behind them homes,
firesides, loved ones, all, went to the
front to defend the right, where in sum
mers heat and winters cold, severest pri
vations and sufferings were felt; where,
and weary, long and rapid
marches were made and at night short
rests taken with a stone for a pillow and
the star-bedecked canopy for a covering,
and these short rests disturbed by the
fitful dreams of a far away home, of the
white locks and wrinkled face of father,
mother, or maybe, of a loving wife and
tender child, till aroused by the bugle’s
call or drum’s alarm.—
And when with memory’s eye I behold
these brave men as with steady tread
and resolute lace they march forward to
the scene of battle amid the rattle of
musketry and heavy canonadc, whisper
ing, it may be, a silent prayer to the God
of battle to spare them if it be His will,
if not, t j shield the widow and the fath
erless, and as they charge into the stqjm
of bullets and among crashing shells,
hear the groans of the dying as they fall
upon the right and on the left, and see
the wounded as with sliattered limbs and
bleeding bodies they are borne from the
field of battle.—
And now* when years have intervened
and I am reminded of those of
radcs who fell in the conflict, remember
"On tame* eternal camping ground
Their silent tents are *|»rea«l,
Where glory^gmmla with solemn round.
The bivouac or the dead.”
and before me see comrades who sur
vived the carnage of war, with time rap
idly depleting their ranks, and as I feel
the silent eloquence of the empty sleeve,
my very tool is made to thrill, and there
comes from my heart of hearts not only
the utterances of wannest welcome, but
a ferrant God blots yon, my comrades,
one and all.
The ties which spring from
as for its beautiful flights of eloquence,
stamped him every inch an orator.
The procession made up of veterans,
the Waycross Rifles and Brunswick
band, whose splendid music on the
march and during the day was enjoyed
by all, with Capt. E. H. Crawley as
Marshal, formed a leading feature of the
day’s exercises. And the dinner, with
Mrs. W. A. McNeil and Mrs. W. W.
Sharpe, and their noble corps of assis
tants in charge, was such a feast as the
hundreds who partook of it will testify
is seldom enjoyed.
The speech of Judge M. I* Mcrshon,
of Brunswick, was the feature of the af
ternoon session. This able jurist and
splendid orator well sustained his repu-
t at ion as a forcible and effective speaker
A beautiful poem, contributed by
Capt J. 1*. A. Dul’ont, of Clinch, was
read by the Secretary, also a letter from
the illustrious and well beloved General
John B. Gordon, and but for the fact
that the Secretary took these with him
to Brunswick, The Herald would take
pleasure in publishing them.
Too much praise cannot Ik* accorded
to Mrs. Lyon and those who assisted her
iu rendering several old Confederate war
songs, and in this connection especial
mention should i»e made of the singing
by the Brunswick (Quartett.
Several short talks were made by vet
erans and interesting war relics exhibi
ted by them.
Col. J. L. Sweat, whom we are in
formed entered the army at the youth
ful age of fourteen and a half years, and
pcrha]»s the youngest veteran in the As
sociation, received tho merited compli
ment of being elected President of the
South Georgia Confederate Veterans’
Association for the ensuing year, Major
Boyle being re-elected Secretary and Dr.
W. B. Burroughs, of Brunswick, Treas
urer, with a Vice-President from each
county, a list of whom we have not at
hand. Rev. Mr. Quartcrman being elec

the place for the next reunion.
Glynn, Camden, Charlton, Wayne,

rounding towns and country contributed
