Ii adv Evangels.??Mr. Varley
having , loft New, York, two lady
evangelists, Miss Beard and Miss
Logan, carry on the -work insti?
tuted by him there, and their suc?
cess i?.by no means insignificant.
Miss Logan is the elder of the two,
being on the shady side of forty.
She dresses in sober drab, without
ornaments, and her face denotes a
predominance of the intellectual
faculties. Her eyes are gray, her
nose aquiline, and her lips thin and
colorless. Miss Beard, however, is
somewhat modern, with bright eyes
and rnddy complexion. Sho wears
a black sUk dress, and flowers and
purple trimings in her spring bon?
net. The ladies alternate in their
work, Miss Beard leading in prayer
and exhorting the hearers while
her companion gives out tho hymns
ono day, arid Miss / Logan taking
her place next day. Their sermons
are spirited and persuasive, abound?
ing in exhortations and appeals
to become soldiers of the cross,
accompanied by a running firo of |
after quotations from the Scrip?
tures, the chapter and verse being
given each time. They speak with
the earnestness of conviction, with?
out any attempt at: tho graces of
elocution; when they havoooneluded
their appeals they request all those
who have accepted Jesus as their
Saviour to stand up. Those who
remain seated are then exhorted
privately by the evangelists, while
several brethren engage in prayer.
CuTTiJiQ Flowers.?Never cut
flowers during intense sunshine,
nor keep thorn exposed to the son
or wind. Do not collect them in
large, bundles, or tie them together,
as this hastens their 1 decay. Bo
not pull them, but cut them cleanly!
off the plant with a sharp knife?
not with scissors. When taken in?
doors, place them in the shade,
and reduce them to the required ]
length of stalks with a sharp knife,
by which the tubes, through which
they draw up the water, is permit?
ted to ascend freely; whereas, if
the stems are bruised or lacerated,
the pores are closed up. Use pure
water to set them in, or pure white
sand in a state of saturation, stick?
ing the ends of the stalks into it,
but not in a crowded manner. If
in water alone, it ought to be
changed daily, and a thin sclice
should be cut off the ends of the
stalks at every change of water.
A. Ward to tue Negroes.?
Commenting on the remark of
Henry Wilson that something
more must be done to improve the
condition of tho negro, tho Augusta
ConstitulionaliM commends to him
and men of his kidney the follow?
ing scrap from the writing of
Feller Sitesuns: The Africau ma
be our broth or. Severil hily respec?
table gentlemen and sum femails
toll us so, and for argyment sake I
mite be induced to grant it, tho I
don'tbolievb it myself. But the
African isn'tour sister, our wife, and
our uncle. He isn't severil of our
cousins, and all our wives relu
shuns; He isn't our grand-father
and our aunt in the country.
Scarcely. And yet numerous per?
son would have us think so. It is
troo he runs Congress and severil
other public groBserys. But we've
got the African, or he's got us
rather; now, what are we going to
do about it? He's an orfnl noo
sance. P'raps ho isn't to . blame for
it P'raps no was created for sum
wise purpose, like Bill Harding
and New England rum, but it is
mity hard to see it. At any rate,
he's here, and it's a pity he kan't
go orf sum whares quietly by him?
self wharo ho oood gratify his am?
bition in varis wane without havin
an eternal fuss kickt up about him.
Time is money, and many people
pay their debts with it.
