I went In a meadow where mower bad lately IMOO. Tbe grass wltb its rich carpet greeo, decoratad with fragrantfloweri<, bad beeu ruthleuly swept away, only dry stubbie remained on tbe parched, cnusked soil, which seemed iooic up Ibesky pray for clouds gar aud showers fall. And Ond Nattire beard tbe prayer, aud clouds gared, showera fell, cracks closed, fresh grass burst forth, aud new flowers bloomed, birds again made meadow melodious, I seemed hear a voice saying, He shall come down iiiieralu upon mown grass." How wide world needs tbe rain I O that in anawer prayer old prophecy may be fulfilled: " Tbe wilderness shall become a fruitful Held, aud fraltful field be counted as a forest." We need shower as Individuals. Poselbly some reader may lament say, "Too late! I drove away shower, till my heart became dry aud barten." Where la tbe blc«m<inem t knew When firat I aaw I,ord; Where la aoul-refreablng view Of Jeaas *ila word 7 What peaceful hours I n onjoyod, IIow swmt tbeir VMmory atlll!

The farmen wanted rain, not rrent. We all value a revival which may oome like a rrent, but without Ita mischief. May we not be tempted undervalue shower which la falling dally while we aie awaiting rrent once in a few years. The regular servloea church, weekly teachings tbe pasr, daily pntyers people, unceasing, gentle, divine hifluencea parenta- friends, if more highly vauied, would diminish necessity revival. Tbe King predicted by Psalmiat came with gentleueas.

Borne contended that one shape abould be square, ors that it should be round, ors, oblong, re were learned argumenta reapecting shape tbe Garden Eden Garden Gethsemane. But varied features surface were against motion unvaried ahape- shape bed must follow conformation tbe giound. After much discussion a majority assented variety shape; but all determined that round each particular bed re should be a fence so high that no one could clamber over It a hedge eo thick that no one almuld look throngh It Thus tenants each bed might st Isolated in middle it. aay, " The garden tbe Lord, garden Lord are we." But tha aun made no diatlnction In Ita shining, except that tbe hedge which was thickest tallest waa moat.efaotive in obecuring tbe light warmth.

In text preceding context we have two pictures sketched by pen iitt>piration. Both am likenesses a child nf God In dlfleicnt periods life. The context pret^enls us with GIMI'H child fat flourishing, perfect in health abundant in honor riches, while text gives UH hu likeness after -wreath worldly glory has faded abundance earthly ilches has de(.arted. The h once full blessings Is now using rod rhasilsement. Verily what mortal eye can stc is not tiie real abiding, but tiie apparent temiwrary. Since piety guarantees uo exemption from sufferlug, let us enquire in I. What chastisements really are. 1. What are y In ir ew<cnfial nature de- Mgnt Divine chastisements have ten been very erroneously interpreted, false injurious philosophies have been constructed on se basal errjrs. An Inductive pbiloeopby that draws its inference ns man's character from human allllctiou misjudges human nature misinterprets God's providence Ttie chastisements God inflicted ou his people are not primarily punitive. Their number degree severity ate not arilbmetically determined by Ihe number degree sins. Tliose persons who are most severely aflllcted are uot ones who have most grievously sinned. SufTerings ate not Infallible signs sins. ChasthtementH are not penalties, else would wicked have many righteous few. Penalty is punishment demed by ill-desert sin, while chastisements do not refer eseentlal character slu, but reformation Improvement one corrected. They are corrective reformary rar than penal. They are suflvrings permitted or Inflicted In love with a view tho spiritual good those who bear m. 2. Now, what are y in ir actucu infliction T In what form do y come? God is sovereign may chastise In any manner be deems bent. Me does Inflict In a variety ways. His chastisements are ten lo»$et \om property, health, friends. But for every loss God wants us flnd In him more than a oompensatldg gain. Sometimes y oome in form /a</urea-failure in buslncm, in education, In realliation even a laudable ambition. Sometimes God permits his people /o/f under temptation, like Peter, that he may teach m frailty man power God. Pre<)uently y oome as pm- Mve infliotimt, God permitted Batan aflllot Job with disease, sift Peter as wheat, buffet Paul by a thorn In flash. Ho permits wiokcd perteouie ths righteous. Chriat said his dlsclplcs: "If y have penccuted me, y will also persecute you." Yea, all that will live godly In Christ Jssus shall sufl'er perseoutlou. Thet«may be flery furnaces for ths steadaut In faith, a lion's deo for ths faithful in praysr, a martyr's dsath for hsro cross. But Bun God will bo in ihe <Umac«flrs, angel God will close mouth lions graos God will sustain dying Mint. > Amid all ths ohasteuitig experiences llf ws may Joyfully say: uu Ui^i^laiis may Ita dhuotuloil, WImi Swi'liotSfomM a^i ntsd IslMttsrUian our btsl. We will now isonsldsr; II. Wbjr ohastlssmsuts are Infllotsd. 1. Our fint reason Is found In ths na/urt des- «f fmau. Man noeilrt clmhtlhciueut UH a child needs ixirrectlou. It takeh Hullerlng purify develop. Man Is impeifticl, consequently needs repro; he Is capable Indellnlte progrccu HUd hu needs ubautlsemeiit. Diuclpllue is not confined vocabulary religion ; it beiongd general speech mankind. It is ueo<lo'l everywhere, Is found in every department < r human life where re Ingenuinv progretwlu home. In school, In business, in chilrch t5tate principle dut'lplinu It* exempllfled. It la like n l irtckcmlth's hiimnior, n viiie-drcsner's prunlngknlfe, uhculplor'h chisel a rclliier'n lire. It molds, elhulnatcf, tnutlfuh und iliiiuh. If man liad no moral nature, und weie only a child clay, dlifclpline would have no )url In his litsry; but since hu i>«a i>plrltual being und WUH born for eternity, Ills very conhillution piixhlbliitlom call for chastening rod. Divid tcmtltieh lo ticiiellciai elltfcts chahtlhementh whnii lie Hays, " It Ih gmid for me tliat I have been allllcted, that I iiilglit learn thy statutes." 2. Anor leasoii for cimhtlnenienth may be keen lu (/od'n charaucr purptw. Allllctloiis «re in iierfect liariuony with covenant love. They are not signs hatred, but aflectlon. The Lord said un his lukewuim people Laodlcea, "As many as I love I rebuke chuhten." Again tlie Scripture Kays, "Whom Lord l<iveth he chasteneth, souurgeth every son whom ho recelveth." A frtr'n hcait proiiipts uniiclimi a far's h wieldn cliahtenlng rod. The la«h Is not used by an executioner nor tlie knife by un enetuy. The strlftes are given In love siid tiie knife is used in mercy. AlllictlonH arc signs (iiid's futlierhood evideucehour Hoimlilp. This Is clear emphatic teaching Word Oud. It Ik a precious doctrine which tha world Ity Ut wisdom could not ascertain, but wlilch u ChriHtluii by bin experleiife may Joyfully realize. A far, by virtue his relation his children. Is exiiected ehasiifte tlieiu in tlieir way wurdness, that becautc he loves m. God's luve rod are inseparaule. Tiiough latter Is heavy it is never made iron. We can endure sting or lash if we can only see i<mlle his love. Chastisements show parental aut/iorili/. Children in home are under conntruint dlttcipline. Tbey are under law, even though It Ite law love. Their liberty should not degenerate In license, nor ir license In anarchy. The ctilidren are not have ttutbority over parents, but tlie parents over tlie children. The rod is a wepire not a tyrant but a King, that King Is our Fattier. Our Far not only allllcth us, hut ho docs so with a pure tu nrflcxnt purj>oitfj. Ksrthly parents have in all ages recognl/.ed tho blek>«e<l circctr wliie use corrcctive dlhcipllne In tho home. With full knowledge its value mid thb eviln Its neglect, Solomon wrote "sparing rcnl spoiling child." So gmierallr was It exert'lsed that author Hebrews significantly ko, "What sun Is lie whom farchasteneth not?" ThechH<ttei)lng is fur i>ermanent good tho child, only througli Infirmity flesh do parents administer correction from any or motives. Discipline is Intended develop ennoble. K\-en Christ Is said have licen made perfect through sufrerlng. Surely, n, ills brethren are not lie free from sorrow. The poet expressed divine idea nfluctlou when he said, " Sweet are tlie UHW adversity." It is a precious paradox that although adversity Itself bitter yet Us fruit Is sweet. Temporary sorrow may only better prepare for permanent Joy. " No chastening for present seenioth be Joyous, but grievous, newruielesm afterwards It yleldeth tho peaceable fruits rlghteouwess un m wlilch are exercised reby." God has his eye heart on bekt results. Loglo cannot always see how meann he employs will secure Ihe end designed, but Gud's ways are uot our ways, nor his thoughts our thoughts. God sscs In each his children wonderful povslbllitles which lu many cases oan b«developed only In hothouse aflilotlon. Then lis p1aoo<i h's h upon his child, transplanting It from Its uatlvu soli In earthly gardsn Lord, where wild llowsr is teuded with care, by by It reveals sunh bsauuss exhales suoh odors that all passers-by both admire flower bless owner. Often wiisu burden Is heaviest are we most oonsoious Omulpolonoe { when earth's night la darkest we see most tbs heavenly llglit; whsu tbe world's din Is shut out m^l heavenly harmonies enrapture tbe soul. "Our light aflilotlon, whlob Is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more excesding eternal weight glory." Let us now obssrve i III. How obostlssments should be reoeivsd. Borne light lias been thniwn on this part our sttli- Jeot by a consideration tbe nature purpose obastlsemeuts. If y are corrective refel^ary measures, springing from a heart love designed for our eternal good, surely y should not be lightly regarded nor unwisely njected. Persons are so prone look only at ir present situation rebel against wbat is not congenial that inspired writer very eainestly urges against manifesution an ungodly spirit In receiving godly chastisement. 1. We are not dctpite cha»ttningt Lord. If tbey come from Lord, y are his messengers, despise m is despise tbe One who sends m. They may bear unwelcome bat never unnecessary messages. Aflllctloss sre not agents destruction but reformation. They are not ministen wrath but merty. If a messenger be detplscd, his message will be unavailing. Surely, it uot wise lightly esteem rebukes a friend. It is neir way prit by rebuke nor retain aftectlon friend. The very source tlie tufrerlngs God ia an all-aufllclent reason why y should be properly received. Then, o, afllictions are suoh a nature as dem a wise reception. If tbey be light, tbey are not InBlgulflcant; If y be heavy, y are not unjust. A haughty sir. Indicative untamed arrogance, Is sometimes seen in a rebellious child, even while be endures hb far's repro, but surely such a spirit Is a far greater sin when cherished by one God's chastened children. The tears a penitent are better than tbe heart a sle. 2. Furmore, aflllcted one should not bccome weary bis Far's correction. It is easier but less Christlike faint than persevere. Each one is likely think his burden is heaviest. To such we may say, "There bath no temptation befallen you but such as Is common man." Temptation may hedge us about, yet God has at least one way escape for soul that fainteth not. If tbe burden be greater than you can bear, God will eitlier diminish its weight or increase your strength. If mountain be o high, God will eir remove It, tunnel It, or enable you cross it. A mictions are not so long continued as Justify y)ur growing weary while enduring tiiem. There are as many days as nights, if some days be cloudy, some nights are starry. Few lives are a perpetual suflltring. But even if y should l>e, life itself la brief, cbaflng neir mitigates tha sorrow nor shortens its ^riod. Some faint under chastbwmeut at if re were no contforl in it. Afllictions have ir blessings, sorrow its Joys night Its stars. As danger brings a far near his son, so Savior is nearest when srm is wildest night darkest. It is worth enduring afllictions secure tbe special presence Comforter which only sufltering know. Bo, n. Instead despising tbe chastening Lord, becoming weary his repro, accept hia correction with filial mhmimion. Rebellion is suicidal, but submission Is life-giving. The ptaceable fruits righteousness belong only those who are properlylexercised by God's repro, those who accept It In a quiet spirit With Cbristlike humility. Calm submission, not mumurlng rebellion, keeps Savior near, makes promises sweet life a benediction. " Be still, sad heart," for Godaddreises you as a child in whom bis soul dellghteth. Sinner, you cannot claim blcming* qfjuvtlom tbe sweet uses adversity which are heritage tbe Ohrisllan. With you, life's trials must ten be Inlerable Insornble. Do uot strike In unholy rebellion against divine h Judge that deals out you, even here, his blows retributive Justice. Yield now whileyou man, delay not until you'mimf. ChristUn, consider patience Job, tbe meekness Christ promises God. Let se thoughts Inspire your heart with a holy courage, a living faith a brightening hope. Life is short, but eternity Is long God is true. "Weeping may endure for uigbt, but Joy comelh lu morning." Midway, Ky. CHOSEN FOR SERVICE, [iutroducry sermon preaohed before Holsn Association Tennessee by Bev. A. L.

R Jesus has dismissed Judas, thief trair, be is no longer numbered with twelve. He went out fm m because he was uot m. The eleven who nmftin with Jesus are made rad ir hemis are tnrablsd because He llu going away. But He cheen comforts tiiem with assurwioe that He is golug prepare a place for m, that He will send anor Comforter wlio shall abide with m forever. The time tlieir departure be with Him lias not yet come. They luive a place a business in this world. In expulsion Judas th«y have seen tlie nominal fruitless branch out lt. He never was a eon God. but he was a devil son perdition, snd went his own plaos. Bat y are " little children" Heavenly Far. Tliey are real branches that abide in Christ tlie true vine. But y do not st alone in this respect. Christ is only vine, but y are not only branciwe. They represent a class which y mselves are a part When Chriat, tlie great Interceaor, prayed for m. He prayed not for se alone, but for tbem also which should believe on Him through ir word. Tbey were have a continuous line succeseors in fslth gospel who should propsgate truth Illustrate Its power efficiency by ir own faith work. The design our Lord's teaching in tbe text is show true relation that exists between Himself His people, empliasim nature His purposes be accomplished tlirough m, as His followers. In tbe world. I want present doctrines text under three heads I. The Lord's choice His people. Jesus said:" Ye iiave not cliosen me." The first bolce was not on part Hb disclplss. A«slaners, lost helpless, y liad not first choeen Him as ir Savior Redeemer. They iud not first sought, through faith in Him, freedom from tbe bondage sin death. Tliey did not first aspbre this freedom. If all people were left mselves none would ever desire become disciples Clirist. They never would think going out in His name, tiiey never could bring forth any fmit glory God. In religion Jesus Christ man's choice is not first. It is conditional upon God's choice. " But I have cliosen you." In realm choice, God is pre-eminently first In every thhig tliat pertains our salvation, our Christian tervlce our future gloiy. Grace first appeared in tiie promise God that seed tbe woman should bmlse serpent's bead. And when tbe Son God, Eteniai Word was manifest take away our sins that He might deetioy tne works devil, grace God tliat bringeth salvation appearad all men. " For God so kivsd world that He gave His only begotten Bon, tint whosoever believeth In Hhn should not perish, but have everiasting life. For God sent not His Bon in tbe world condenm tbe world, but that world through Hbn might be saved." John ill 16,17. Here proposal salvation Is on tlie part God. The faith him that believeth simply accepta gift God, which Is eternal life, l'tfred In Lord Jesus Christ. In what sense, n, does tbe Lord choose His people? Tlw question suggests, as I have already intimated, that more than eleven were included in tbe Lord's choice, as announced in tbe text. I know that commonly accepted Interpretation this psrt text limits His choice tbe eleven, making Him chooee tiiem only, only for apostleship. But as Hovey remarks, This does not agree with flrst clause,' Ye have not chosen me;'" be asks," What pertinence has this if He had lo mind ir selection be apoitlest How oould tbey choose Him with reference Aposlate?" And If thhi be limit Lord's choice, it must also be tbe limit His appointment, tbe going bring forth fruit, prayers be made In His name tbe Far's answer thoee prayers. But se cannot be limited apostles any more than prombw that Holy Bplrit should abide with m forever, that He Himself would be with m alwi^n, even un end world. In lulh verse this chapter Jesus s^ys: If ye were tbe worid, tbe world would love his own, but because ye are not world but I have ahotcn you out qf world, refore world hateth you." The spirit world has never changed in I hatred ward people God. ItlssUU ally tbe flesh tbe devil. Jesus did not choose his apostlss, at tuoh out tbe worid, but he chose thsm from number His disciples. When tbey were choemi out world It was not a choice prior ir selection for apostles. And it is significant that thsss two sutements " I bavs choesn you," in tbe 16th verse, " I have chosen you out world," in vsrse 19, st so close ger in leogtlgr discourse our Lord. But Jssus Christ tim Fathsr are one in tbehr parpose work. And He rsocgnism tlia gift Fathsr HUn all rsdsemed. In tbe eth ohaptar ana»7th verse He Mgrst "All that tbe FMher giveth Me shall oome Me, him that oomelli Me I will in nowise cast out" And in 44lh He says: " No man can come Me except Fa r which hath sent Me draw hun; uid I will raise him up at tbe last day." The first motion lost soul ward Christ as tlie Bavior is eondltkmed upon tills drawing tbe Alnighty Far. And author Happy Day " has expressed tbe true sentiment every Ciuistlan: ' Tts doo«-tb«grsat tranmctlod's done, lam my Ix>rd'8 He Is mine; Us draw m* I Ibllowed on. R^ieed own ths eau dlvln*. In 17th chapter, verses 1 2, Jesus says Far: "Gkirliy tby Bon. that thy Bon al may glorify e: As thoa hast given Him power over all fiesb, that He should give eternal life as many as thoa hsst given Hbu." Hers tiiose who receive eternal life from Christ are said be given Hhn by Far. Bo that apo^ie says hi tbe letter tbe Epbeslsns: " Blessed be tbe God Far oor Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed ns with spiriai blessings in heavenly places in Christ: according at He hath choten u«in Him before tbe foundation tlie worid, that we abonid be holy wltboot bume before Him hi love: having predestinated ns nn adoption children by Jesus Christ Hlmsdf, acoardlng tbe good pleasure His will, praise glory His grace, wherein be liath made us accepted In beloved." Eph.l.8-«. In anotlier passage this apostle leaves us in no donbt OS who are tbe chosen: " But we are bound give tlianks alway God for yon, brethrm beloved Lord, beeaute Ood hath from beginning ehoten you tadvaiion throagh sanctlfication tbe Spirit belief tbe truth: Wherran He called yon by our gospel, tbe obtaining gloty our Lord Jesns Christ" 2 These, ii. 18,14. In his first letter Peter writes " Elect according tbe foreknowledge God Far, tliroagh sanctlfication tbe Bplrit, un obedience sprfaikihig tbe blood Jesus Christ." 1 Pet L 2. In ail se Scriptures, in many more that I could give, we an cleariy taught that tbe Lord has called His people oat darkneai In light th chosen tbem nn salvation a state sonship with Himssir a lifs hoiiness obedlmice. They are, tbenfors, tbe Lord's psople in deed in tmtli, He hss an nnqoestkmable right determine what y shall be direct what y shall do. II. The Lord's appointment Jesus said: "I have ordained you." This Is not ceremony ordinatn. Tlie essential tliought purpose ordination is "set apart" designate for sommiung definite. Tlils more fai involved in tbe statement Christ Tbe word means place, appoint, assign, devote, dedicate. The Revised Versn Broadus, Hovey Wesn gives It appoint " I have appointed you." This age has gone mad with tlie idea man's ft«e agency. Tbey do not rccognlze that God exercises any sovereign clwlce in man's salvation, y do not alkiw that He has made any appointment that carries with it divine autbority human obligation responsibility. It Is a pernicious doctrine that we don't need any ology In our rel gk>n. And I am afraid a man'e ineacblng who says he has no ology. One tbe greateit needs our time Is more tbe Word God in our preaching more God's doctrine In oar religion. It Is announced everywhere that this is a pmctlcal age, If you don't lui in Ibie you are not In procession at all. I know tbsre are many excellent tilings among new. And I believe m a practical rell ^ a rellgn whoee sincerity geuhieness ore proven by a iifo humility consecratfon activity In Lord'e ssrvloe. There may be tbe form witlwat power, tbe shadow without substance, but no real, practical isugion oan exist apart from ths Lord Jssos Christ, a recognition His autbority power In tbe performance all leligkhis work. " Without Mo ye can do nothhig." The prsssuce Jesus means His autbority power. "Whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do ail in name Lord Jesas." There is nothing be done in religion that Is not done In His name. He Is Lcid as weu ae Bavior. He Is King hi Zn.

"For after tliat in wisdom God world by wiado u kuew not God, ii p'ea».d God by tbe foolishnena preaching t-ave m tlut believe." 1 Cor Thb» is tbe purpow for preaching tbe gosrei.

Tbifl necteeiiy L- ciuphaslxetl t>y great commlhsiuu, " Goye.ibeiefoie, auu utch all n^tluns, maiiedibclpus all nations." Tbe mi/wloiiary Idea is tbe very? nrt life gospel Christ. If tbe musioii v spirit abould tie taken awuy, what might remain i tbe goepel would be no more u a lifeless skelen, our cburchee would ba as dead as dry bones valley iu E^ekieU' viaion. The abefnce piri: purpose go work is tbe great cause for unsplritual condition many our churches. They an dylug for waut a little out-door exercise. Our Lord m<-aus that we shall be active aggreaelve in his work. We are go in bis name, by his authority aud with bis power accomplish great things for extemion his kirgdum among meu. And he promisee give iermaneucy our work. "That your fruit tbould remain." Tbbi Is a part tbe purpose for which we have been chonen aud appointed. We may uot behold with our eves all tbe results out iabor, but it is Lord's work, committed us be accomplished by us, it cannot fall. We know that out "labor is not in vain iu tbe Lord." 2. Again, anor purpose fur this choice appointment Lord bt effective prayer. "That whatsoever ye shall airk Far iu my name be may give It you." This means our beet equipment fur service. My bielbreu, here is where we ten fall, we nnderuke work with o little praying. We are permitted come boldly throne gra<-e, that we may obtain mercy aud tind grace help in time need. There bt never a time when we are not iu need divine help. And our needs are many, but I meatlui four tilings that we specially need in Lord's work. L An enlargement our faith-rhlth in God aud in his promtms. Pray for faith? Tbe disciples said Jeeiis: " LorJ, In.rease our faith." God's promisen ue great, but our faith is ten o weak undertake great tlilugs for him. We are afraid step out ou hia promiaea. We need a working faith a " faith Uiat works by love." 2. We t»ed more love for God do his will, for biunanlty, help m up God. eternal life. liove is at foundation. He first loved us." Aod we do love him, but we need lovu him more. Lore delights eetve.

I begin my letter with a few things penoual, for I was Loru aud " born again," was baptiiced, ordained miuistry did my first preaching In Tenuewee aud near Nashville. I occasionally see names yet Ihose who used be fellow-workers with me. In winter '53 aud '54, in an old building (formerly used as a carpentei's shop) where now sts Central Chuicii houec, I contracted a cold while holding a meetiug, aud liave not seen one well day since.

The blood before water, Cbriat before church, salvation before baptism, were favorite ezpreaslons iu hu preaching. How absurd, yea painfully so, that young men, who, if bom, were yet babea when Dr. Graves was preaching lalvatkm by grace through faith, should be giving it out that be preached tbe reverse.

A namber responses were made by negro delegates from dlfleient parts df Union, all In as elegant appropriate style as I ever heard at any our white Baptiat conventions. Their President, Rev.

Twenty-five dollars a month will Hupport a young man during time he studies for ministry. Three hundred dollarsayear will save in near future thouns dollars. These three hundred dollars will educate a young man for miulmlry, who, when educated, can till place pasr in churches now under care missionaries. Help Board educate natives It Is a good Invesient fur tbe future. Well educated native pasrs will enable missionaries go in dlstricls where Gospel Is not known open up new places for work.

" Hera are your books," said tbe man, " we do not need m." " How did you oome liave all books?" colporter asked. Why, we ahot for m last night, I won m all," was tbe reply. So tbe colporter ok tbe books, as he wended his way out from mountains, muted on this sad commentary on human nature. Later he learned that re were hundreds people In this region who bad never heard a gospel sermon preached, did not have Word God In ir homes. They were not superior hi that respect a hean Chinese or a Hottent It was, hi part, this fesrful darkueta which Big Emory Association was established eullghten.

Soon anerward he visited Sidney Rigdon at Menr, coarse 8uccee<led in converting him without much trouble. He n attempted convert his church was largely i«uccew!ful. In Decemlier, 1R,W, Kigdon paid a visit Joseph Smith remained for some time. Orson Pratt was anor early convert. These three two Pratt^ Rigdon were men ability. They endeavorwl Justify Mormonism on Biblical grounds, l>aslng it on literaliatic Interpretations eome passageh Scripture. During visit Rigdon Smith, " LonI" commed Saints in New York gar in Ohio, whi'.'h y proceeded do, settling at Kirtl in Norrn part Stitc. But Smith had liefore him visions "New Jerusaiem " be built in last days. In February, 1831, hlb followers were commed ask Lord, he "would in due time reveal un m place where New Jerusaieai should be built, where mints should eventually be gared in one." About middle July, that year. Smith several elders met at Independence, Mo., when following "revelation" wa.s recelv^ : " Hearken. O ye elders my Church, with Lord your God, who have apoemhled yaurwlves ger according my onmmmentn In this l, which la laud Mliwiurl, wmch it l wmeh I have appointed comccralcd for yaring SainU: wherr/ore fhit iaihe t o/promite (h«place/nr Iheeitffo/Xion.

Behold tbe place which is now csllsd Independence la ttw centre place, a spot for tbe Temple la lying westward upon a lot which Is not far f.om tbe euurthoaae." This revelation Is dated ZIon, In anor revdation dated Bopt 22,1882, It s stated that tho place was appolntnl by " finger tho Lord." On Angiut 2nd foundation flnt hoaae wan laid, twelve miles west Independence, twelve men taking part, In honor tho twelve tribes ibiimi. Soon afterward Smith Rigdon rotumed Kirtl. On arrival re, Smith, found that things had, not been going well There was a disposition tree lovelsm, which was noticed during au Smlth'sIUlBUme.

Meanwhile tiio boastful spirit Mormons, ger with ir political ambition, led friction between m Iteople Missouri. On July 20th, a mob re down tho olhcc Star, tho Mormon fmipcr at Independence, tarred, feared whipped e number Mormons ordered m leave county. On Nov. 4th a battle between Mlssourlans Mormons ok place, which resulted In vicry former, led many tho Mormons Imv Ing driven out Jackson County. Joseph Smith, still occupied with building Temple in Kirtl, had himself olected " Commer-in-Chief tlie Armies Israel," had a revelation from " Loni," comming him destroy enemies "tbe Ijord." A company consisting 130 men, including some prominent Mormon elders, was organized nt Kirtl, called "Zion'sCamp." This company marched Missouri, intending rc8t4)re banlslied Mormons Jackson County. But cholera broke out among m. Smith got anor revelation from " I/)rd," telling him that se Mormons did not deserve be resred until y had been chastised had learned obedience, that disappointment warriors who had come all way from Ohio by direction a revelation from l^ord " fight ir enemies, was simply "a trial ir faith," y were Instructed disperse eir go among settlements Mormons or return ir homos in Ohio. Meanwhile, Smith was making considerable pretensions in Kliti. He chose twelve aik)su'!s, appointed seventy elders, sent m out convert world. The temple which was erected at a cost about $10,000 was dedicated March 27, 183(>. Prcceoing tho ceremony dedication " S-iints " had quite a lively time. Smith said that " visions eternity" were opened ciders» angels ministered; " power highest restc*! upon m " ; " tho house was filled with tho glory God." One writer accused m being merry from anor "spirit" than that which y claimed from above. At dedication 1,000 "Saints" assembled. Smith iered a dedicary prayer. Brigham Young led f with speaking in ngnes, services day closed with continued shouting "Ilosannas " "Aniens." Everything seemed lie moving along finely. But elated by success Smith iiegan put on airs. He became proud, despotic. It was a system ocracy ho had established, in which ho wau prophet mouthplcco Ix)rd. It was for him speak; it was for his followers oboy. Many m grow weary such despotism, tiie first great apostacy ok place. In order provide sufiiclent revenues for his growing needs. Smith established in Kirtl a Safety Society Bank, which he was cashier Rigdon president. A Pittsburg banker said: "Tho names Joasoh Smith as cashier Sidney Bigdon OS prssldsnt wsre signed beautimily en- tho ihipor tho bank should lie rctliocmed, eir In cash or in convertible paiior or banks. They sent an agont Kirtl arrange matters.

Tho Pittsburg bankers n refused take imiier. It was forced back on tho Safety Society Bank.

This experience Smith caiiwi " porsccution." He never retumihl Kirtl, although he had previously announced that " lionl" had accepted Saints re bad ^tabllshed his name in Kirtl for salvation nations.

That Is good news given us by Bro. Wilkes on page 4, that on last Huuday nigiit ho tiaptized Senar Wiiilam B. Bate, our «icnlor Senar from Tennessee. Senar Bn's mor was a Baptist, a member, as stated by Bro. Wilkes, Hopewell bureh. He always said if he Joined any chnrcb 4m would Join tliat his mor. lie has Itecn intereiite<l upon subject reiigioa for some time, aa we happen know. He greatly ct^joyed Dr. Hawthorne's preaching while In city. About a year ago, during a meeting held at Hopewell Church by Bro. Wiiki>s, as8l8te<i l>y Bro. J. T. Oakloy, ho was deeply alttcled liy Bro. Oakley's preaching. We made reference this fact at time, but did not call nnmei>. Senar Bate is a man highest pure.4t cliaracter, botli private public. Though h» has been in public life for many years, not a single charge has been made against tiie integrity liu character. Ho possesses alisoiu confidence every one. Wo doubt if re is anywhere in this l a more faith* ful, conscientious, devoted pulille servant than he is. It is a tribute his noble character that while occupying tiie exalted x>.sition lie does, having opportunity Join some tho largest most fashionable churches in l, he should choose cast In his lot with an humble country Baptist Church. At same tliiio, however, wo cannot help feeling that ho himself has never had a greater honor put upon him than lielng a follower tho meek lowly Namirene, a member one Ills diurcltes. W e trust that his useful life may ho ivared many moro yearh. THE SOUTH AND THE NEQRO. Dr. Juntin D. Fuln had a temperate well considered article in Watchman recently on The South tho Negro." We agree with liim that '* negro Is tho most available trust-. worthy laborer tiio South can obtain," also that South ftimlshes negro a ileid suited hia wants hopes." Wo are not sure, however, that ** tiie South'needs tiie ni>gro more than negro needs Soutii. Witiiout him tlie cul. tured prosperous South becomes a desolation." There are many people In South who believe that South would really be better otf without tho negro, because It would throw m moro upon tbeir; own resources, put tliem work mselves more, develop In m greater independence, lead tl^em, divide up country In smaller famib Which y would cultivate moro closely more eco. nomlcaliy, while, maybe, gross Income wch fiirtti might not be so large,' net income yoold he larger aggregate net Ineome would be much more. We confer, however, tliat.ve like negro. We believe that ho is here t:«i«atay. He docs not want go, ^ilte people South, as a mlo, do not vm\ a,. A t. him go. The thing for him for us do is try make best Hituntlon. If design.

Joined BapUst Church la 1850 at Bover, Tenn., lived a consistent member antll her death, which occurred July 14, 1899, she behtg sixtyfive years old. More than twentyseven yeara ago ahe was left a widow with three children train support. With remarkable energy courage she met life's battle sncoenfully, trusting firmly In Him who has promised be " A Far farless a Judge widow." She.lived see all her chlldicn worthy I monbets Baptist Church. Each a boon society an honor ir mor. Well may it be said her as It was one old, '*8he hath done what she could." She was a loving mor, kind neighbor devoted Christian. For serml years she had lived o fer away attend services at her church, but her love for Master's cause grew no less. We hope meet our sister, not old lonely, but in bloom beauty eternal youth, with angels around Ood's throne," Where wicked cease trouble weary are at rest." AXAHDA PHILLIPS, JAMBTHOMASON, ALTA BKID.

Henderson, Henderson'a Croia Boads, Tenn., peaceftilly calmljr fell aaleep in Jeans. Gared aro dying saint were aged mor, heart-broken husb,, weeping children, sisters kind neighbors. The straggle battle for life had be«i herolo, but death gained tbe vicry became gat«w»y i«at beyond tbe river. Sister Hendeiaon was one among purest CIMNyflUJ.Mfr women I ever knew. In 1881 I bapbsptised her iu fellowmhip nf Knll Creek UsptUt Church. For nixteeu yeara a pasr never bad a truer friend tlian I had In tbe permn BUter Henderson. lu tho hour trouble darkness, when otliera wavered she was as firm In loving sympathy substantial aid as immovable hills. I loved her as I love my ov/n mor. Some day, somewhere I hni>e see her again. Sister HenderMou wsita model woman. Only words kludnetw fell from her lips. Her hs were ever ready help needy. She was universally loved by her church large circle friends neighbors. It was within sacred domaluit her own home that her life was luost beautiful. No husb ever had a truer more devoted companion along life's rough Journey than Bro. Henderson. No family children ever had a sweeter more loving mor. She was sacredly devoted ir welfare. She loved m as only a mor can love. They loved her with purest aflvotlon. It was a family tied ger in sweetest love harmony. But battle has been fought. The husb, after a loving Journey thirty-two years lu company with wife hifi youth mor his children, is left sad lonely. Tbe eyes that looketl In his are closed in sweet repose. The hs which BO ten administered his wants comforih are folded upon a silent boimm. Ttie lips which spoke loving cheeiing words are mute still. The familiar footsteps are hushed forever. TheboiHmi which swelled with Joy sympathy Is forever stilled. The children miss mor, sweet mor. What Is home without a mor! Oh! how my heart goes out in sympathy for heart-stricken husb morless) children. May Uod lead m gently beside still waters. The writer conducted tho funeral Mrvices in Fall Creek Church in presence a large cuncuuree uf friends relatives, after wlilch Iter pulsetesh dust was laid away beside sacred dust two little bab»t. After awhlla husb will lie down by her side. Children will follow. Tliere tliey will rest in hope till great day. I thank Qod that such a woman, wife, mor. Christian ever lived in our community.
