GEORGE O. BARNES
GOD IS IS LOVE And NOTHING ELSE
JCltAISE THE LOUD.
Houma, La.., March '.I, 1SS7.
Dear Interior -I am writing in an
open yerandah of a typical Southern mansion,
with the gentlest of breezes Mitring
tha leaves of the noble lire oak upon the
lawn and the atmosphere laden with the
perfume of the orange bloasoma Eren my
olfactories take coj;n'zince of the odor uneducated,
and or no means sensitive as they
are Ordinarily, it lake an old-fashioned
rose, or an honest pink, to awaken a response
in ray plebian proboscis The delicate
scents partainln? to the m re cultira
tod productions of the green house aro beyond
me. Bat I am clad to find that the
orange bloom doea effect the air and that it
is not a poetical fiction of an oyerheated
I must describe my surroundings under
theinpirition of their mvelty, or I shall
soon feel S3 accustomed to them that they
will hardly seem worthy of special mention.
So quickly does the regular "tramp" (gospel
or other) adapt himself to changes.
Architecture has made little improvement
in comfort on the old fashion, of n ball
through the centre; opicious, lofty rooms
on each side; verandahs front and back; with
an ell for the culinary department, Such
is our present abode. But the front lawn
is the glory of the place. Umbrageous live
oaks of magnificent height and spread of
branches; the graceful if sombre drapery o'
the ubiquitous Spanish moss, festooning
every hough with its gray streamer?; rows
of orange trees, 25 feet high, right and left,
along the division fences; the Terre Bonne
bayou 50 yards beyend the front paling;
a carpet of green Bermuda grass under
foo'; Plymouth Bocks and Brahma ; turkeys
and guinea;; with "Frank." the noble
setter; artistically scattered around and
dotting the delicious landscape with life
Delicate flecks cf cloud sailing the blue, as
if they were the prttv chariots of angds
in leisurelv inspection of the beauty below.
Across the bayou a neat row of whitewashed
houses, cottages for the most part. Tne
stream is navigable for boats and two small
steamers ply up and down, bringing sugar
from the plantations and oyaters and fish
from the gulf. We are about 30 miles in
a straight line from the salt water, though
these bayous are all made brackish certain
distances op by the tide I don't know,
bat just guess, that the title "bayou" is a
diminutive of ''bay." For the bayous are
simply narrow lagoons or bays, communicating
in every case with the "great, salt
sea." Tbey abcuod in fish, and at the
mouth the finest imaginable oysters. We
eat them here as large as "Ssddle Eocks"
and incomparable for flavor, which is a rebuke
to my ignorance. For I once thought
good bivalves didn't "grow" far south of
Baltimore and Chesapeake Biy. Live and
If you will look it up on the map you
will find that we are about 00 miles weat of
New Orleans. Erery thing is unique and
etrange. We are now In' the sugar country
and out of the cotton belt. No more pine
forests. Only cypress everglades, drape 1
in mournful moss. The land of alluvial
deposit, pu excellence. Flat as a floor.
Measureless prairies of ooze, with dottings
of ponds, of irregular shape, furnishing a
very paradise for ducks and other water
fowl, where in secluded nooks they can
feed, with only occasional disturbances
from the sportsman's gun. Oceans of reedy
fens, with great and small islands and head
lands of mm-festooned cypres foresi;
fiocka of birds clinging eidewise to the bulrush
topi as they gather their meals from
the ed pods on top; all this, where the
rich soil it undrained, waiting for capital
to turn its opz nco of fertility into sugar.
Wbere the cultivation redeems the waste,
nothing on be prettier than the clean fields
of cane, and the stately mansion, with it
village of out houses, all white as lime and
paint can make them. The great sugar-house
looks like a city factor, or a Ken
tuck distiller, with its array of smoke
mac, boiler and engine.
Our jjurney hither was delightful The
weather perfection. Tne Kosciusko meeting
simply glorious in its results. I' is not
exaggerating to say that the whole town
was revolutionized in those short ten days.
More "God power" in that meeting than
any I have known for many a day. The
obstacles barring success were apparently
impassable. Bat the LORD Christ swept

but we had no time for a day's visit and
it would have been simple punishment to

nothiog about our coming till we were past
Tuesday we spent in the city, already bo
dear to us, which we ware overjoyed to
Toe "Madame" had our sams room
ready for us.
A Lenten (?) breakfast on broiled oysters, if
broiled sheephead and trout tenderloin, with
tartar saucs, at FabacherV; a "bird's eye"
frm the top of the in the
transparent brightness, meet reception of
tha lit day of spring; a run out to
on Like Pontchartraio; Sister
Eochester to dine with us, at Fabasher's
again; a sound night's rest at 82 Bourbon
street; and we were fresh and ready for an.
Our train for Houma was rather early
isr cciufert, but we retired at 0 for our 5
o'clock rise, so we got enough sleep. At
the French Market we added our modest
contribution to the wealth of the old
Frenchman who has grown rich by selling
delicious coffee, with two well-shortened,
peculiar, pie-crusty little rolls for 10 cents.
IIli stall is one of the institutions of
"N'awltos" and he deserves fail fortune for
making mors people gaatronomlcally and
financially well pleased in stomach and
purse combined than any man in the city.
A great ferry-boat, with double railroad
tracks on deck, yet not so huge as its sister
that crosses the Sicramento river, formerly
described, bore us across the soapy Miss
issippi, in the delicious early morning, and
we were soon speeding away westward.
B II o'clock we reached Houma, after a
single change, coming the last .30 miles on
a slow branch, but full of interest, for the
new and etrange sugar country we passed
through. For miles and miles just out of
the great city, market gardens, well-kept,
occupied the soil.
We have had one meeting in Houma,
last night, and it was well attended.
It was held In the Firemen's Hall,
the bast place for n meeting in the
village. The population is for the most
part Komau Catholic, Creoles of French
extraction. But many have no religion at

Geo O. Barnes.
I should not be surprised if our whole
theory of prayer breaks down before advancing
light. A large part of it will, I
am sure. For it is founded upon ignorance
of the character of God.
It has long been seen by many that we
do not alter God's mind by our petitions
Importunity, however earnest, does not incline
Hln. to do, after it, what He was indisposed
to do before it. It is a question
whether our God is at all moved by it, save
as His heart of LOVE is moved with tender
joy whenever He sees a "change of
mind" in us.
I am more and xnor persuaded that we
shall never approximate a just estimate ol
the "power of prayer," until we see that it
puts us into a position to rtcriu a blessing,
rather than it moves the LORD to beMov a
While we are careless, indifierent or unbelieving
we are in a position where blessing
can not come to us. For we must go to
it. And we can only go to it on the wings
of prayer and faith. Therefore "prayer
meeting" are dull and profitless, bee sure
they represent, like so many stated Sunday
services, a spasmodic pietv, that purchases
exemption, for six days, from uncongenial
thoughts, by a convulsive effort on the sev
enth, that is supposed to be an equivalent
for unwearying "continuance in well doing;"
as the prayer meeting is meant to stand
for"praying without ceasing " Therefore we
"aek and receive not, because we ask
amies " It never puts us into a position
where we can get b'es'ing, according to the
Whereas, the soul that walks in the light
and intimate fellowship with God, gets all
its w.nts, nnd "exceeding abundantly
plenitude)- above what we can ask
cr think" because it comes simply by the
"law of faith" in the place where blessing
al wars is found
In this aspect then of the whole subjret,
the two extremes of practice, as we daily
meet them, are explained. The comlant
dating of a thing on the bins that God had
to be vivid before we gat it, leaves us restless
and dissatisfied from first to last; and
the almost certain failure to "receive," is
laid, unjjstly, to the account of a blessed
God. The al othmy plan, on the contrary,
which is so far right that it recognizss the
fact that God doe) cot need moving, is yet
in the end far worse, because it directly
contradicts the word and disobeys a positive
injunction. "I say unto you, Asi:,"may
not be disregarded with impunity. The
"Golden Mean," I think, lies in asking lov
ingly, earnestly, trustingly once, expecting
thenceforth to receive. This, logically, cuts
us oS from ajking Witt; and this, I doubt
not, is most acceptable, of all prayer to God.
The next best, perhaps, is, if we don't expect,
to keep on asking, till the dull heart Is
slowly raised to the expectant point, where,
of course, alone, the blessing is to be found.
But the repetition is indeed a "vain" one,
it be founded on any supposed slowness
or unwillingness of our God to give all at
Tola, of course, hardly touches another
feature of "asking amiss," mentioned by
St. James, when the answer comes not, because
the thing asked for would inevitably
be misappropriated. God loves His children
too well to place what, in Itself, is a
blessing, in hands and hearts unfitted for
its reception by a preconceived purpose to
put it to ignoble uses, Erer in Jesus,

Gen. Frank Wolford finished his politic
al career when he voted to pass the dependent
pension bill over the President's veto.
As a democrat he could not now be elected
to the most insignificant office in the State.
If General Wllliami has any special
qualifications for the place, (Interstate
Commissioner) or any acknowledged ability
for anything except swearing nnd stump-
speaking, we have never been informed of
the fact. He knows nothing about
business, and is too old to learn, and
we doubt if there is a Kentuckian mention
ed for the place who would not administer
the effice in a more tatisfactory style.
President Cleveland again shown him
self capable of correcting a mistake by giv
ing to the River and Harbor Bill the "si
lent veto." Last year he signed a bad bill
appropriating $14,000,000 and containing
many joss. This year's bill was passed iu
an unusually (Ctndalous manner. It was
not considered bv tbe House, but was simply
rushed through. The Benate added ?3,-000,000
to it, including $50,000 as an entering
wedge for the Hennepin Canal

save $10,000,000 from the surplus
