Hawkins Mills, Va., Nov. 26, 1888. Dear Bro. Eager:—When I last wrote you we were in a meeting at Mt. Tabor. While many causes conspired to keep from us the results we had hoped to attain by the meeting, yet, much good was done. Only one so far as I know professed faith in the Saviour, but many were awakened to a sense of. their danger by the earnest preaching of the word by Bro. Moffett and were anxiously seeking the way of life when we had to close the meeting. Since that time I assisted Bro. Wm. Slate in a meeting at Arbor church. — The Lord blessed our labors there. Some twenty-five or thirty persons ac cepted the Saviour when other duties compelled us to close, leaving many others anxious on account of their salvation. Bro. Slate preached for me at Ringgold the last second Sunday to the edification of the chu...

Beautiful feet are those that go On kindliest ministries to and fro, Down lowliest ways—if God will it so. Beautiful shoulders are those that bear Ceaseless bnrdens of homely care With patient grace and daily prayer. Beautiful lives are those that bless — Silent rivers of happiness. Whose hidden fountains few can guess. If you want to freeze out your pastor by all means take the back seat where the unsanctified sit. Read the experience of a "late comer" as found in one of our exchanges, and ask yourself, "did I ever find it that way?" "Back benches are refrigerators." Axioms are self-evident truths. The above is an axiom. Truth, like a bee, will present itself at times very pointedly. Sometimes it will rise on one's horizon gradually and grandly, like the sun, whose coming turns the blackness o...

"How many, many times Throughout the by-gone day, Because the flesh was weak, Our spirits went astray. "Though conscience pleaded loud, We still kept doing wrong, We drifted with the tide Because we were not strong.

Father, grant, we pray, The pardoning grace we seek, \nd give us strength each day, Remembering we are weak. "And when life's toil is o'er, May we, with sins forgiven, Through Him who died for all, Find rest and peace in heaven." —Selected.
