Russell was unanimous ly chosen to deliver an address before the Reading Circle at its next meeting. His fame a* an orator has caused an eager desire on the part of young and old of our town to hear him. The gen tleman who seconded his nomination last Friday evening spoke of him as the “John Temple Grdves” of South Geor gia. As improvement in oratory b a main end sough; by thb society, she has chosen the fairest exponent in the coun ty. While on thb point, I venture to censure our institutions for a lack of locative pride and appreciation. Our people seem to think that a man who b met and seen every day b not meritori ous or talented, and theno mi plain that our neighbors and friends are overlooked when vacancies occur in State, judicial or diplomatic circles.

A representative of the Hkrai.ii spent several hours iti Hoboken recently. Is the second station below Wave just fifteen miles from this city. There is much about Hoboken to remind that its “glory had departed” to a tain'extent. At one time Mr. W. E. Burbage of Brunswick, and Capt. H. T. Ketinou of the same place, operated extensive enterprises there. They turned into available wealth the Geor gia pine, first utilizing the turpentine and afterward the timber. The remains of what was once one of the best saw mills in South (tatrgia gives an idea of the immense business done there in days gone by. But another enterprise is in operation near Hoboken, giving employment to about three hundred men, and increasing the business of the place considerably. We refer to the extensive works of Messrs. Baily, Boles & Co. They have two camps, seven and nine miles south east of Hoboken, Itauling their ties to the railroad over a tramway. • We are informed that their shipments average $100 per day. A school has just been started at Ho boken, Mr. Edward Caroe being duly installed as teacher. The school is con. ducted in the church building. Services are held in the church once a month, conducted by the Rev. A. B. Findley, of Waresboro. * Mr. W. A. Martin, “Bill Martin,” as he is called, is in charge of the only store here; Mr. Moore is salesman and book keeper. He keeps a good line of general merchandise. Mr. Martin also runs a giu and grist mill iu connection with his mercantile business. It Is a matter of surprise to the writer that the officials of the Brunswick and POTPOURRI. It has been determined to construct the Georgia building at the World’s Fair out of Georgia pine. Governor Northen, chairman of the World’s Fair ex ecutive committee, has appointed a large committee covering all sections of the State, litany of them large lumber deal ers, whose business it will be to secure contributions of lumber and free trans portation for it to Chicago after it has been properly prepared for use in the buildiug, which is to be on an extensive plan. The scheme is favorably received by the press. It is claimed that Geor gia pine finished in oil as hard wood would be a revelation to three fmirths of the United States, much less the for eigners who will visit the World’s Fair. The lumber interests of the State are very, and such an advertisement the Georgia building would give could not fail to prove a lasting benefit. With a buildiug assured, it is thought the balance of the great display which Georgia can make at Chicago would l*e comparatively an easy matter to accom plish. — Florida is making a strong tight to re tain the fast mail service front New York to Havana, Cuba, via Jacksonville, Tant|ia and Key West, and for the continuance of which the Postmas ter General has failed to make any provision in his recent report to Con gress. The Tampa iboard of trade hits drawn up a strong memorial to Congress on the subject, and this memorial will Ik* presented for endorsement to the Jacksonville board of trade, and to all other large cities in Florida and to all commercial agencies, and even to other Suites directly interested. The increase in revenue in Tampa front customs du ties and internal revenue due to the fast ail service of 1891 is stated to be $400,000, which goes, of course, to the support of the national government, and makes a telling argument in support of the memorial. Other coiLsiderations are the immense tourist imputation residing for a limited season in Florida, and clearly entitled to sonic consideration in mail facilities, and the great exjienditure of capital in groves, vegetable farms and large hotels based on the expectancy of a continuation or the last mail service, without which these industries would not have originated and to the continuation of which the fast mail service is indis pensable. In this omission of Post master General Wunumaker to recognize the rights of this portion of the South he evinces a desire to injure the people who have held hint in merited contempt. The famine in Russia is due to a fail ure or partial failure of crops for the past three years. An official estimate of the nunilter of those without food or means of supimrt is given as 14,000,000 persons. Owing to the scarcity, and the poor quality, of food, typhus fever is add ing to the wretchedness of the situation and rapidly decimating the peasantry. Reports are conflicting as to the part the Czar and nobility are playing in the tragedy, though we prefer to credit the statement that the Czar has contributed enormously to aid his suffering people. The Red Cross society and the great Russian novelist, Tolstoi, are rendering systematic aid, and the United States is not behind in sending contributions from her granaries. From the rejmrt of the commission ap- 1 jointed by Secretary Foster to investi gate in Eurojje the subject of immigra tion to this country, the anarchist should not find the United States a fer- LETTERS TO CHURCH MEMBERS. BY ZKKK JOHNSON. NO. II. Does Christianity pay? It does, even from a selfish standpoint. Church houses and missionaries to the heathen are not the only products of Christianity. It is not possible to treat this subject exhaustively in the limits of these letters, but we will take a hasty view of some important facts: The morality, at least, of our civiliza tion is the product of Christianity. Greece, Route ami other ancient peoples were highly civilized in letters and art, but their morality was very deficient. Remove all the benefits flowing to us from Christianity, directly and indirectly, and we would sutler beyond reparation. There are about 60,000 preachers in this country, sustained by Christianity, and who will estimate tlieir value to the gov ernment in dissuading men from vice and to virtue?

The best investment any community can make is churches, the next best is schools. If you doubt what I say try it. Take two communities having equal natural ad vantages, let one have good churches aud pastors and the other none, and ask the price of real estate iu each* l/mk at the vast suuts'of money in educational institutions, hospitals, asylums, put there by Christian people. At present the Baptist denomination alone has over $25,000,000 (twenty-five millions) in vested in education, in this country. Do you say the State would build educa tional institutions if there were no churches? Then will you tell us of a ingle unchristian or heathen State that ■ver built asylums and hospitals for its unfortunates or schools for its ignorant? No such State has 1kh*ii established. Then these institutions are the product of Christianity, directly it established by religious denomination,* indirectly if established by the State. Then consider the power of Christianity as exerted through the religious press. Who can estimate _the good influence wrought upon all classes of society by the books, paj»ers, periodicals, leaflets, tracts of the various religious sects. Besides all this what is the effect of Christianity upon j our laws through its jsjwer to shape public sentiment and secure legislation. ! I recently saw a statement that the ex pense of conducting missionary opera tions in certain of the Soufh-sea Islands had been three million of dollars in flftv years, while America’s trade with the saute people for the same period hail been fifty millions dollars. Now suppose all the agencies for good, direct and in direct, were removed that all that Chris tianity has done and is now doing for mankind could be instantly blottetl out and the human family placed just where they would be but for Christianity, and wltat would be the condition of the world? Africa, China are partial an swers to the question, though not com plete; for all nations, more or less, have been influenced by Christiuu civiliza tion. Christianity does pay, as nothing else pays. If this is true then what follows? Why, that it should be supported, not by taxation or by establishing one or all sects as a State religion, but by the vol untary offerings of those who realize its benefits and those benefited by it. Pas tors should be liberally and amply sus tained, churches should be well built and furnished, religious literature liber ally supplied to the young, the mission ary spirit encouraged and its operations extended and all the agencies of Christi anity used to their utmost capacity. Who Is to do this? Church members. You, as a member of Christ’s kingdom, belong to Christ and your duty is to do his commands. Do you do it? How do you sustain your pastor? Do you say that you “give” this or that to him, than representing him as a jMiupn? Does a church committee have to beg you for a subscription and then beg you to pay it? If so you are a very sorry church member and ought to improve. Do the colleges and schools beg you in vain for help? Do you give to hospitals, homes, asylums and other institutions built by the contributions of Christiau people? If not your religion is not help ing mankind nor glorying God. If you refuse the duty what will you do with the PHIVILEUK? What about the hounty of a man who enjoys all the benefits and privileges of Christianity and refuses to share the responsibility? Honest men pay their debts; you owe Christianity a debt, pay it Jy L. THOMAS, Attorney at Law, WARESBORO. . GEORGIA R. O. CANNON, Attorney at Law, WAYCB03S, QEORtllA. Owe* up stain in Wilson Block.
