The swallows circle, the robin calls;
The lark’s aon>c rises, faints and falls;
The peach-boughs blush with rosiest bloom;
Like ghosts, in the twilight, the pear trees loom;
The maples glow, and the daffodils
Wear the same hue that the west sky fills;
The moon's young crescent, thin and bright,
Shint?s in the blue of the early night;
And over all, through all, April bears
A hop ! that smiles at the Winter's fears.

A Good P.eacher’s Embarrassment.
Loudon (Tenn.) Record.
Few things are more trying on the
nerves of a sensitive and sympathetic
Christian minister than to be called on
to preach a funeral, or rather a memo
rial and commendatory sermon, over
the remains of a man who has lived a
notoriously impure and wicked life.
The grief-burdened widow and stricken
children, who are perhaps densely igno
rant of many of the weaknesses and
sins of the dead husband and father, are
present, and to add to their sorrow
would be an exhibition of brutality of
which no true gospel minister could for
one moment be guilty.
On the other hand, the preacher feels
that he must not stultify himself. He
cannot “preach the man to heaven,”
when he and his hearers are profoundly
convinced that the deceased had all his
life long defied Almighty God, and giv
en all his service to the devil. To give
a man a through ticket to the better
land whose whole earthly existence has
been a protest against religion, a prac
tical denial of Jesus Christ as the Sa
vior, is to bring the pulpit and the
preacher into disrepute — thoughtful
people are disgusted, irreparable harm
is done the church of God and the cause
of religion generally. Lewd fellows
of the baser sort hear the fulsome eulo-
j giums, and on leaving the church shake
1 hands with themselves and say, “Well,
]l can live as I pleasef—I can curse,
and drink, and gamble; I can lead a
double life, and just before I die I will
instruct my family to have IJr. Dryas
dust conduct funeral services over my
remains, and I know he will land me
safely on Canaan’s happy shore.” We
know that the evil complained of ex
ists, and that there is urgent need of
reform. What is the remedy? We an
swer, to a very great extent funeral
preaching should he dispensed with.
Practically all religious denominations
have their own printed burial service,
compiled by great and wise men. On
all ordinary occasions let the burial
service, in a solemn, deliberate man
ner, bd read. Let an appropriate song
be sung, an earnest prayer offered, and
the remains interred. Funeral services
should be brief. They cannot benefit
the dead. Mere words can impart hut
little comfort to the living. Grief of
this nature must run its course. An
honest, truthful minister will not
preach a man to heaven if he feels con
vinced that the man has gone in the

This was the manner in which she
was discovered hv men who went out
from Pensacola to St. George’s Island,
where the vessel was slightly aground.
She had evidently gone upon the beach
easily, for she had suffered no injury,

On December 20 the vessel was
caught in a terrific storm on the gulf,
which raged so fiercely that the captain
and crew were washed from the decks.
The sails were set then, and they have
remained so, the vessel wandering
about the gulf and turning with the
change of the wind until she finally
landed on the beach.
During this period the gulf was vis
ited by half a dozen severe storms, but
the vessel, without a man aboard,
weathered them all. Aboard were found
portions of the naval stores, while that
portion stored in the hold was intact
and uninjured. This is the most re
markable maritime occurrence known

Prohibition Movement Grows Strong.
As is well-known, Georgia led the
prohibition movement, her State-wide
law going into effect Jan. 1, 1908.
Alabama, Mississippi and North Car
olina followed, statutory prohibition
becoming effective Jan. I, 1909.
Tennessee came next, her State
wide law to become elfective July 1,
In Kentucky, out of 119 counties, 96
are now dry; 13 have saloons in one
town only; four have them in three
towns; two at two places, and the re
maining four have all thejcounty under
prohibition outside the incorporated
towns. A State-wide law is hoped for
Louisiana has 33 out of her 59 par
ishes entirely dry, besides much terri
tory in the remaining 26 under prohi
bition law. The parishes are voting
dry as fast as elections are called. The
Legislature of 1908 failed to pass a
State-wide law, subsituting a stringent
restrictive measure. Petitions are now
being circulated asking the Legislature
of 1910 to submit to the people a pro
hibition amendment to the Constitu
All hut ten of Florida counties are
dry—36 out of 46. The only wet places
are 15 cities, and the number of saloons
in them is 324. The Legislature, now
in session, is by a large majority
pledged to submit a Constitutional
amendment to a vote of the people.
This vote cannot be taken until 1910,
but when it is, prohibition is practically
certain to win.
In Texas, out of a total of 246 coun
ties, 157 are dry, 66 partially so, and
23 are wet. In the Democratic pri
maries of 1908 a majority voted to
submit a Constitutional prohibition
amendment to the people, hut when the
Legislature rnet a vote for “submis
sion” failed to pass by a narrow mar
gin. It had a majority, but failed to
get the two-thirds majority required.
South Carolina has 21 of her 42 coun
ties under prohibition, while the re
mainder have dispensaries only in the
larger cities, arid most of them only at
the county-seat. A bill for statutory
prohibition has passed the House, but
has been defeated in the Senate and a
compromise reached by which the vote
for State-wide prohibition will be
thrown hack upon the counties after a
two-weeks’ trial of prohibition in Au
gust next. The dry counties may then
vote the dispensaries hack if they
choose, hut South Carolina prohibition
ists are confident that the result will

Victors to Return Flag to Conquered.
Forty-five years ago, at Spottsylva-
nia court-house, Virginia, the regimen
tal flag of the 14th'Ceorgia was cap-*
tured by the 15th New Jersey. That
was on May 12, 1864.
On May 12 of this year, the anniver
sary of the famous battle, on the very
spot where it fell into the hands of the
enemy, the tattered old flag will be re
turned to the survivors of those who
fought under it.
Gov. Smith has appointed Rev. M. J.
Gofer, of Atlanta, and Col. J. W. Pres
ton, of Macon, to go to Spottsy] vania
and receive the flag in the name of the
State of Georgia and the old Four
teenth. Dr. Gofer and Col. Preston are
surviving members of the famous old
The appointments were made by
Gov. Smith in response to a request
from the Fifteenth New Jersey Regi
ment Memorial Association that he
name representatives from this State,
one of whom should have been a mem
ber of the regiment. A monument
will be erected by the New Jersey as
sociation on the battlefield.
