Gracious Meetings in Bro. G. H.
I have finished my protracted
meetings in all my churches.
Bro. P. P. Blalock was with me
all the time and did all the preach
ing, and did it to the edification
and upbuilding of my people, and
the Lord used bim as an instrument
in his hauds for the salvation of
siuners. I have had larger in
gatherings from protracted servces
than I had this year, but I do not
believe my meetings have ever,
resulted in awakening so much
spirituality in the membership of
the churches and SJ much interest
in the Master's cause as was the
result of my meo'tings this summer.
I believe Bro. Blalock was God's
instrument in bringing these
glorious results. There were
additions to all my churches.
. It is gratifying to me to see so
much more interest in Sabbath
school work in some of my c/uurcbos
and renewed energy and zeal in all
the departments of Christian labor
in all of them. I believe some of
our pastorless churches would be
fortunate in securing Bro. Blalock's
services. I commend him to them
as a worthy and succe?sful pas
tor, for wherever he has labored
in that capacity the Lord ha6?
blessed him abundantly. His
infirmity doeB not keep him from
administering the ordiuauceB of!
baptism and the Lord's supper.- j

rears of age and older remember
veli when corn bread was a portion
?f their diet six days in the week,
especially was this true in the
louthern States. The art of cook
jg hoecake, corn dodger and egg
read reached a high standard of
^cellenco, and wheat flour came
i for use only once or twice a
eek. All this has been changed,
ven the. southern negroes have
rgely deserted corn bread for
>ur bread, and the hoecake, corn
.dger and corn muffin now exist
iefly in our songs and litera
re. Not one cook in 1,000 now
ows how to make the corn bread
the olden time, and this fact, in
mection with the more abundant
eat has reduced the consump
n of corn bread to a mere trifle,
oparatively. While we are
icating Europe, then, as to the
ights of corn bread, we might
