An Eloquent Sermon on Jonah With
its Lessons for Sleepy Christians.
TEXT: "So the shipmaster came to him and
said unto him: 'What meanest thou, 0
sleeper? .Arise, call upon thy God, it so be
that God will think uponus. that we perish
not.' "-Jonah i., 6.
God told Jonah to go to Nineveh on an un
pleasant errand. He would not go. Hfc1

to sea. With pack under his arm I find him

I think if you hurry you may get on board
her." Jonah steps on board the rough craft,
asks how much the fare is. and pays it.
Anchor is weighe-l. sails are hoisted, and the
riggina begins to rattle in the strong breeze
of the Mediterranean. Joppa is an exposed
harbor, and it does not take long for the ves
sel to get on t hA broad sea. The sailors like
what t hev 'all a "spanking breeze," and the
I plunge oi the vessel from the crest of a tall
wave is exhilarating to those at home on the
deep. But the strong breeze becomes a gale.

hke this before.
"Oh, yes," he says. "This is nothing."
Mariners are slow to admit danger to lands

and the vessel pitches so far "abeam's end"
there is a fear she will not be righted. The

of so much of the cargo as they can get at.
The captain at last confessps there is but lit

hal better go to praying. It is seldom that
a sea captain is an atheist. He knows that
there is a God, for he has seen Him at every
noint of latitude between Sandy Hook and
Qui:enstown. Captain Moody, commanding
the Cuba of the Cunard line, at Runlay ser
vice led the music and sang likea Methodist.
The 'aptain of this Me-literranean craft,
having set the passengers to praying. goes
around examining the vesel at every point.
'He descendsinto the eahin to see whetherin

had sprung aleak, and he finds Jonah asleep.
Jonah hail had a wearisome tramp and had
spent many sloepless nights about (uestions
of dbuty, and he is so sound asleep that all
the thunder of tha storm and the screaming
:of the passengers does not disturb him. The
captain lays hold of him and begins to shake
him out of his unconseiousnoss with the

Now, lest any of you should make this
mistake, I addrtss you in the words of the
Meditr.-ranean sea eaptain: "What mean
est thou, 0, sleeper? Arise. call upon thy
God. if so be that God will think upon us,
that we perish no:." If you have a God,
you had better call upon Him. Do you say,
"I have no God?" Then you had better call
upon your father's God. When your father
was in trouble. whom didl ha fly to? You
heard him in his old days tell about some
terrible exposure in a snowstorm. or at sea,
or in battle, or among midnight garroters,
and how he escaped. Perhaps twenty
years before you were born your
fathrir made sweet acquaintance with
Go.. There is something in thq
wo-:n pages of the Bible he used to read which.
mr.kes you think your father had a God. In'
th old religious books lying around the
h->use, here are passages marked with a
lead pencil-passages that make you think
your father was not a godless man, but that,
on that dark day when he lay in the back
room dying he was ready-all ready. ,But
perhaps your father was a bad man-prayer-,
less and a blasphemer-and you never think,
of him now without a shudder. He wor
shiped the world or his own appetites. Dd
not then, I beg of you, call upon your fath
ers God, but call on your mother's God. I
think she was good. You remember when
your father came home drunk late on a cold
night, how patient your mother was.
You often heard her pray. She used to sit
by the hour meditating as though she were
thinking o; some good, warm place, where
it never gets cold, and where the bread does
not fail, and staggering steps never come.
You remember her now as she sat in cap and
spectacles reading her Bible Sunday after
noon. What ggd advice she used to give
you! How black and terrible the hole in the
ground looked to you when with two ropes
they let her down to rest in the graveyard!
Ah I think from your look that I am on the
rght track. Awake, 0 sleeper, and call
upon thy mother's God.
But perhaps both your father and mother
were depraved. Perhaps your cradle was
rocked by sin and shame, and it Is a wonder
that from such a starting you have come to
respectability. Then don't call upon the
God of either of your parents I beg of you. I
But you have children. You know God

!-V of th molnth corrispond- d with the ann'
virsrv of that tattle. Thit trronr years have
p.as cd and this generation is just -eginnin-t to
unlersarnd what the war was about. Northern
irstores have been so partial and one sided
I hat t h young folks have be r surpria. (1 and
;stonished that outr people fiuglit Po hard and
a . I, ng with so little to fight for. But the
truith i< gradually dawning upon the nation.
Southern hist-ories have be'n wriiten ind intro
!neel ini sont thern schools and our children
are beomig our defenders. I see that Mrs.
Stan Pindl ton Lee. the gifted daughter of
Gen ral Pendltetrn, has written abistory of the
Umted Stat. a antl has without reserve told the
story of tiw hile civil war. and the Unired Con
federato Voterans. in their great meet:ng at
I-listoti. have as fearlesslv indorsed it. In a
few sears more the south' will be vindicatrd,
lit it takes a hug time. Eighty years have
pa-i-ed since Napo!eon figure 1 in Europe. and
even ntow lhisorians differ widely about events
and mnotives conce:ning him. Marshal Ney was
shot in 1815 r i- died in North Catolina in
ISIS, nobody krows which.
I or several , ears we have been waiting for
'he truth about t Hawaiian islands, but it
ha not yet beti written from i a non-partisan
stantpoint. Conservativo peop'e don't know
what to li-liev'. 'I lt missionaries used to tell
n that t he Sandwieb islandcrs were cannibals
fifty yeatsago, but had alt.become Chri-tians
andii had sc-ho !Ps and clurchts like we have.
Later accoutits say !iat pohtical rchemers and
unilipled scouinirels from our country havo
ltndered that uliappy land and r. dtneed
those natives to beggars and snj-eticti. And
now we read that anoiher set atre arting Ves
sls to Orive the first Fet ont tunder preten'e of
helping thte tatives. I wonder what are th.
facts tn the case?
And what at out Cnha? Who knows? The
pre vailieg idea is that Sptin is a tyrant and has
ot ftose Cnhans by the thro t and they n'ant
to gove-rn itetiselvei and Pet up a republican
form of governutent I ke ours. Pit a knowii'
man, who ha, been there, to:d me that those

the oflic-s antd get rich off the sugar planta
lions that the Spanairds are ciltivating. There
was a big ti:as raised and lots of sympathy ex
temlei ahout atn editor whom the Spani rds
had conned in Moro castle. but Homer Reed
says he found out the o-itr day that the editor
wa< a coa'-black coon who h ad been vi ry scan
dalh-us in his paper. And so the question
conies up, "is Cu' a worth helping?"
)avid wrote. "I said it mine haste all men
are liars," and the old Scot-h preacher too't
that for his text and remarked: "Ab, David,
David, if ye had lived till now ye might have
sai-l it at yotr le sure. me iaon."
Are we a nation of liarp? Read the papers
and say! Who knows what to believe? %A hill I
was in Florida ihe other dar I read from the
New York Recorder atn awful accout abont
Tavares being attacked by rattlesnakes and the
people had to turn out with guns and rocks and
thrashpoles and they killed over 400 in t e
'rects one unnday morning attd in two days
had killed over a thousand and the people were
terror-stricken. The article went into many
det ails and told about a woman wtho put her
ifant clhld in a tb while she washing in an
other tub, an.t a big rattler got his head over
the edge ot' the tub and she had to kill him
with her battling stick. I asked a Tavares
man about it and he was amaz--d. "Why,"
saip lhe, "it is a lie-a lie withont any founda
toon. Some lying repor er made it up for a
sensaion."~ And not long after I read that
t re was yellow fever int Tampa and the peo
ple were fiittg from the city. I was in Tampa
hat very day and knew it was a lie. Of com se
the paper took it all baek the inext day and
-ail it was a mis'ake, but there is no telling
the damage that such mistakes do. If a re
porter who is running -around for news gets up
a lie for a sensation ho should be turned off in
An I here is the silver question that has been
the ..ul-ject of more exaggeration than will ever
be f-rgmvn in the day of jndgment-more
ciination and slander and suppression of the
rnth, and rothing is yet settled about it.
Who knows what is best? When we see
such statesmen as Morgan and Vest and Harris
and Datniel and hGeoree and Blackburn and
Crisp and Black and McLaurin and a host of
o hi rs on one a do. and as many notable men
ont the other side, what right has a common
nman to jrump up and swear that he knows all
abut it andi that those who dlon't thtink with
.inm aro fools. But I rt ekon the next election
wll settle it, and I wish it was over, for the,
pl)~e tire getting mighty tired of the whole
And there is another question that comes up
p'iodically and has ricently come up again.
Does education lessen crime? Some philan
'bropists are getting concerned about this, and
well they may. for the statistics of every state
in the Untion establish the fact that education'
of the kind the pupils are getting increases
crime-nut a htttle, but immensely, and yet we,
go oti nd otn with it and the clamor comes for
more andl more. Just look over the daily pa
pers and see how the reoord of crime is mn
.easing-not misdemeanors, but the most aw
'n! crimes-not only away off in Ohio, but
ighit here in Gcor,.:ia. But I forbear. I wrote
has all up two years ago and gave the figures
'om the approved reporas of the penitentiary
,,nd the prisons and the jails and the wotrk
a suses fronm M~asachnittt to Texas, and they
aere all alike, so far as increase was enncerned
taent we better atop and think about this
.md rake e. les Ott from Prussia as to the kind
,f eduication that will diintish crime? Who)
,.ll the geo.. and virious girls marry nowa
las? Where are the youtng men whlo are
orthty of them? 'lhere are at least forty yoting
marria-:ecable girls in this town of good fai
e; who would make good wivts, but whter't
a:c the young men to whom the fathers would
entrust ihemi? Thete are not ten-a-e there
ivt? Matriage is at a di--count-not because
thts3 girn< are fast or ex' ravagant or ridle a hi
evch, bitt because the young men arc generally
n'o, acatnnt. or dissipattd or can't support a
w fe. Some of them will spree all night lo'ig
td goi to a (lance the next night with a re
i ectable girl.

As to women talking in church, I hope they
will not make a business of it, and we cou!d
say the same of some men we know. But if
sh'e tal!s well and makes the world better. let
her talk. She teaches our children in the pub
lic schools an 11 Sabbath schools and why not in
the church? The fact is, if woman was allow
ed to be our lawmaker for one session she
wou!d wake up the nation on the whisky Lui
n-ss. wouldn't she? Then let her rn.ke prog
ress in every good work. We k o; very well
that it is hernntural desire to marry and be a
nioter, but if there is no prospect of that,
what. mutua she do? Go to the missionarv soct
c y (r visit the sick. von may say. That won't
buy bread nor clothing. I heard a preacher
say, "Would von make amazons of tour
women?' There were no Amazons, and Ama
zonia has been stricken from the modern rp4,
for neither the country nor the womt-n conl I
be found. Humboldt'says he sFerche-d dili
gently an:] found an old man over there who
sa d his grandfe.ther told him he saw four en I
time-tour women astride of horses and artud
3itli soe.srs, but, he says from his best inforia
tion thse were a few dusky slave womn wh
is&aped from thoir captors and fl- far into
i he interior and built a fort to protect th' m
selves, and tIere, in course of tiue, they all
died. This amazon story is all a myth, but if
it was not, it does not follow that our men will
ever x et so low as to let the womn do the
tighting. And now there is a big controversy
abut tie old woman who killed her htiband.
No, I wouldent hang her. It was an awful
crime f< r a woman to do, but I wouldent hang
..nv woman. But look how many men have
killed their wives or sweethearts in thc las! sx I
mionthis. It is getting as common as suicides.

THE COLUMBIA IS A WONDER.
Home From Southampton in 6 Days, 23
Hours and 49 . Inutes.
With a record which is a surprise and a
delight to the Navy Department and to every
one with a spark of pride in the achievement
of American vessels, the triple screw com
merce destroyer Columbia poked her
shapely white prow over the New York har
bor bar at 8.59 o'clock. a. m., and at 10.35
o'clock was off Quarantine. Captain Sum
ner and Chief Engineer Harris had brought
the cruiser from the Needles, off Southamp
ton, to Sandy Hook Lightship in six days,
twenty-three hours and forty-nine minutes,
covering 3112 knots at an average speed of
18.53 knots an hour. and placing to hereredit
the best long distance run ever made by a
warship. No other war vessel afloat has ever
been subjected to such a severe test of
strength, speed and endurance.
The distance covered was 3109 miles. The
feat of the Columbia is not far behind the
best records of Atlantic passenger ships,
which are built for speed and speed princi
paily. and which are handled in a way tc
mako the fastest time possible.
It must be remembered that the warship
made the voyage under natural draught,
whereas in passenger ships there is always
more or less of a forced draught. It is said
by some that had the Columbia come under
forced draught she would have considerably
lowered the record of the marine ocean grey
She was built especially for speed- in fact,
to be a commerce destroyer-and her cap
tain and officers said that she had realized
every expectation a.nd ha-l proved herself to
be easily the fastest warship in the world.
Her daily runs were as follows: First day,
405 miles; se.-ondl. 400: third, 462; fourth,
450; fifth, 455; sixth. 453, and seventh, 405.

Gentleme:-During the summer of 1888 ,
had a severe attack of typhoid fever which.
left my constitution'in a wrecked and broken
down condition. Ever afterwards I had to
be very careful not to get the least damp for
if I did an attack of rheumatism woild be the
result. I was able, however, to attend to
business the most of my time though I could
never say that I was well. I continued this
way till the summer of 1894 when I wagl
taken with a more severe attack of rheuma
tism which commenced first in the back of'
my head and neck, then my shoulders be
came involved. I suffered untold agonies,
could not rest day or night, could get in no
position that would give me rest even for a
few moments, could not sleep more than I5
minutes at any one time, had no appetite, my
flesh was reduced till I weighed only 121 lbs.
The disease moved down or rather spread to
the small of the back and into both hips, then
to the left knee joint. I could not walk up
the door steps. but had to crawl out and into
the house. About this time I was taken witht
a shortness of breath which one doctor pro
nounced heart dropsy, another an excess of:
water in the chest. I gave up all hopes of.
1ver getting any better or even living for
more than r few months. I wrote many of:
my relations that I did not expect to live but
a very sliort time. Of course I had been under
the care of men who called themselves good
doctors all this time; I had six of them to at
tend me during my sickness. I tried every
thing that I could get that was said to benefit
people who had rheumatism, but instead of
getting reliof I continued to grow worse.
One day a friend came to visit me, and like
all other friends. had a rengedy for my ills.
Her remedy was Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for
Pale People. She showed me a paper which
praised them very highly. I told her that I
had no faith in them, and as for the article'
in the paper, it was nothing- but mere
bosh. But like a drowning man that will.

I commenced to get better from the first day..
I took six boxes and am well, my appetite is;

121 lbs. to 160 lbs. I have been in the rain.
