As far as I can see. your tre'tat want

enter life a great many vextit ots an
annoyances take after us. We h1av11
our holidays and our sean:is of rerera

this world who has found ti ire re-t?
The fact is tLat God did n1"t make thi
world to rest in. A ship tiht awel
go down off Cape llattera to niiiii
smooth water as a want iii tins wirh
to find quiet. From the wav that God
has strewn the thornts. ti1 hiurng thle
clouds. arid siarpened tile tusks: froin
the colds that distress us. ani the heats
that smite us. anid the pllurises that
stab us. and the fevers that clisule us.
I know that he did not nake this world
as a place to loiter in. God does every
thing successfully. aid this world
would be a very different world if it
were intended for us to lounge in. It
does right well for a few years. In
deed it is magnifieent. Nothiung but
infinite wisdom and goodness could
have mixed this beverage of water, or
hung up these brackets of stars. or
trained these voices of rill arid bird and
ocean, so that God has but to lift his
hand and the whole world breaks forth
into orchestra. But, after .ll. it is
only the splendors of a king's highway.

You and I have seen men who tried
to rest here. They build themselves
great stores. They gathered around
them the patronage of merchant prin
cesses. The voice of their bid shook
the money markets. They had stock
in the most successful railroads and in
safe deposit vaults great rolls of gov
ernment securities. They had emblaz
oned carriages, high mettled steeds.
footmen, plate that confounded lords
and senators who sat at their
table, tapestry on which floated the
richest designs of foreign looms, splen
dor of canvas on the wall, exquisiteness
of music rising among pedestals of
bronze and dropping soft as light on
snow of sculpture. Here let them rest.
Put back the embroidered curtain and
shake up the pillow of down. Turn
out the lights. It is II o'clock at
night. Let slumber drop down upon the
eyelids and the air float through the
half opened lattice drowsy with mid
summer perfume. Stand back all care,
anxiety and trouble! But no. they
will not stand back. They rattle the
lattice. They look under the canopy.
With rough touch they startle his pulses.
They cry out at 12 o'clock at night:
'Awake, man! How can you sleep
'when things are so uncertain? What
about those stocks? Hark to the tap of
that fire bell! It is your district. How
if you should die soon? Awake. man!
Think of it! Who will get your prop
erty when you are gone? What will
they do with it? Wake up! Riches
sometimes take wings. How if' you
should get poor? Wake up!" Iising
on one elbow, the man of fortune looks
out into the darkness of tihe roonm and
wipes the dampness from his forehead
and says, 'Alas, for all. this scene of
wealth and magnificence. no rest!"
I passed down a street of a city with
a merchant. H~e knew all the finest
houses on the street. lie said: "There
is something the miatter in all these
houses. In that one it is conjugal in
felicity. In that one a dissipated son.
In that a dissolute father. In that an
idiot child. lui that the prospect of
This world's wealth cani giv'e no lper

You and I have seen muen try in an
other direction. A man says. "If I
could only rise' to such and suich a plarce
of renown, if I could gain that office. if I
could only get the stand and irave my
sentiments met with one good round
of hand clapping applause. if I could
only w-tite a book that wotuld live, or
make a speech that would thrill, or do
an action that would resound." The
tide turns in his favor. His namre is
on 10,000 lips, lHe is bowed to and
sought after and advanced. 31en drink
his health at great dinners. At his
fiery words the multitudes hruzza. Froni
galleries of beauty they throw garlands.
From-house tops as ire passed in long
procession they shake out the national
standards. Here let him rest. It is
11 o'clock at night. On pillow stuffed
with nation's praisc let him lie down.
Hush all disturbanit voices. In hris
dream let there be hoisted a throne and
across it march a coronation. hush!
"Wake up!'' says a rough voice.
"Political sentiment is changing. How
if you should lose this place of' honor?
Wake up! The morning papers are
full of denunciation. Hearken to the
execrations of those whro orrce caressed
you! By tomorrow night there will be
multitudes sneering at the words which
last night you expected wotuld be urni
versally admired. How cart you sleep
when every thing depends upon the
next turn of the great tragedy? Up.

starts up suddenly, looks out upon tire
night, but sees nothing except flowers
that lie upon his stand, or the scroll from
which he read hisspeech, or books front
which he quoted his authorities, and
goes to his deslk to finish his neglected
correspondence. or to lpen an indigniant
line to some reporter, or sketch the
plan for a public defense agaist thre
assaults of tihe people. Hlappy when
he got Ihis first lawyer's brief. E'xul
tant when he triumphed over his% first
political rival. Yet. sitting on the
very top of all that this world offers
of praise, he exelainms: "No rest!N

Now. for what have I said all this?
Just to prepare you for the text, "Arise
ve and depart. for this is not your rest.
I am going to make you a grand offer.
Some oif you remember that when gold
was discovered in California large com
panies were made up and started off to
get their fortune. and a year ago. for the
same purpose. hundreds dared the cold
of Alaska. Today I want to make up a
party for the land of God. I hold in
my hand a deed from the proprietor of
the estate. in which he offers to all who
will join the company 10.000 shares of
infinite value, in a city whose streets
are gold. whose harps are gold. whose
crown are gold. You have read of the
crusaders-how that many thousands of
thei went off to Conquer the holy sepul
cher. I ask you to join a grander cru
sade, vot for the purpose of conquerintg
the sepulcher of a dead Christ. but for
the purpose of reaching the throne of a
living Jesus. When an amy is to be
made up, the recruiting officer examines
the volunteers, he tests their eyesight.
lie sounds their lungs. he measures their
stature. They must be just right. or
they are rejected. But there shall be
no partiality in making up this army of
Christ. Whatever your moral or physi
al stature, whatever your dissipations.
whatever your crimes, whatever your
weaknesses. I have a commission fronm
the Lord Almighty tonmake up this regi
ment of redeemed souls, and I cry.
"'Arise ye and depart, for this is not
our rest." Many of you have lately
oined this company. and my desire is
that you all may join it. Why not?
You know in your own hearts experi
ence that what I have said about this
world is true: that it is no place to rest
i. There are hundreds here weary
oh. how weary-weary with sinl. weary.

Some of you have been pierced through

Sovill McCallum. a boy of my Sun

"There is rest for the weary.

TILE MARION MEETIN;.
At the Marioll lleeting on Thursday
Mr. J. E. Ellerbe. who wants Congress
man Norton's place announced that he
was in the race for congress to defend
his honor. as lie had been unfairly
treated. had had lies circulated against
him and his opponent. Gen. Norton.
had broken his agreement with him two
years ago. It had been said that Eller
be dare not show himself. and at the
Florence meeting at least 100 men came
to him and told him they voted against
him before on account of these rumors.
He asked the people of Marion to re
buke such damnable political trickery
and rascality as that was. (Applause.)
He begged. entreated andi dared Gen.
Norton to compare records with him.
Congressman Norton. another son of
'Marion. replied vigorously to 3r. Eller
be. Said lie: "If you say or intimate
that I have circulated false reports
about you, you tell what is not true.
You read papers here about which I
have nc knowledge. and if it is a per
sonal difficulty you want to precipitate.
I will settle with you outside this meet
ing. I have felt the cold lead and I
want you to understand that I am not
to be bulldozed."
Back from Mr. Ellerbe came the calm
rejoinder: "If you take it as a person
al iatter you can get from me anything
you want at any time and place, and
you know that. -
Gov. Ellerbe was greeted with rous
ing cheers. lie was doubly grateful to
these people of his who had taken him
from the plow handle. It had been as
serted by one of the candidates that he
could not carry his own county. (Voice:
" He must be crazy."
There was a little spat between the
goveruor and "Uncle George"' Tillman.
in his speech the latter said that Gov
ernor Ellerbe had cried persecutioni and
it was beneath his manhood. This the
governor denied and Col. Tillman reit
rated it and went on to say that lie had
never charged him with corruption.
TIhe Governor-No, you haven't, but
if you do you will have to pirove it.
