THE BANKS^ LAU RENS
A TRIP TO FLORIDA
To the Laurens Advertiser:
As you will notice, I am in Florida.
My wife and I left home on February
8th for this country.
Will endeavor to give you a little
description of our trip, and this coun
try; if you think it worthy of publi
cation. We came as far as Columbia,
the first day. Had to wait there, un
til one o'clock that night before we
could get a train out to Jacksonville.
While waiting that afternoon, wo took
in some of the city. That evening, vis
isted Dr. Pike's Rescue Home; as we
had known the matron, Miss Anna
Tlnnstrom, and ass't. matron. Miss
Mary Bell HolmcB for a number of
years. 1 only wi6h, that every one
of God's children could only see, feel
and hear whut we did there. 18
young ladies from the age of 15 to
26. in that home?stained by sin,
branded by the devil. We held a lit
tle service with them. Only 14 were
able to come out to service. One of
the youngest was asked to go to the
organ by the matron. You may have
an idea, that they are all ignorant,
and unaccomplished, but you are very
much mistaken. As that little girl
touched the keys of that instrument,
the melodious strains of music pealed
forth, and our hearts rould hardly
hold the emotion, as every mouth was
opened to sing the praises of our
(Sod. After a few songs, and prayers,
I talked to them from these words,
"Bui Daniel purposed in bis heart,
that he would not defile himself". Dan.
1:8, after which 8 o? the girls stood
for prayer. We sang ' .Mother's 111
bie" by suggestion of one of the girls.
It is useless for me to say here, that
sadness swept over us; as we heard
the sobs of those poor unfortunate
girls. Let every Christian that reads
these lines, lift your heart to Qod, in
behalf of these unfortunate girls of
our land, and send a contribution to
the matron to help lift the heavy bur
den off of her; as she only looks to
God for help.
Now comes another experience, As
we were waiting at the depot, the
alarm was given, and the "great iron
horse" came dashing up. "panting
as if off a long journey" with his
great train of ears. We had our berth
assigned us. in the "sleeper". I said
to my wife, "it has been a long time
since 1 was rocked to sleep, over 40
years ago. Really was anxious for
the experience. Thought perhaps it

would remind me of the times when
mother used to rock mo In the 'old
arm chair,' until I was lulled to sleep.
We started, anything but a cradle
to me. We were dashed from this
side to that, until we were like Paul
In the storm on the sea, wished for
day. Finally somewhere in a strange
land, the porter called out, "daylight"
to my great relief. I raised the shade
and looked out upon the "Land of
Flowers," the most beautiful country
1 ever saw. Perfectly level filled with
large pines, palm trees, cypress trees,
with beautiful lakes here and there,
and the whole country covered with a
lovely carpet of grass with largo herds
of cuttle here and there, only to add
to the grandeur of the scene. The
cattle, I noticed were very poor. The
sun was just up, when we crossed the
river, about 1 mile wide with a great
prairie on either side as far as you
could see. This too, was a lovely
scene. The rising sun, glistening on
the water made it have the appear
ance of the "sea of glass." We ar
rived at Jacksonville, a city of 30,000
inhabitants. Did not remain longer
than an hour here, then we started
south, still admiring the beautiful lev
el country for about fiO miles, then
we begun to get Into the Florida sand
or loam country, which scenery sur
passes anything 1 have ever seen. With
its large live oaks, water oaks, large
long leaf pines, all covered with moss,
[ hanging 2 or feet long from almost
every limb, and the woods covered
With palmetto. Then comes the la-g >
orange groves, covered with b'osBt ms,
and the air is filled with their fra
grance, with the ripe fruit also hang
ing on the trees. For the Ii ist time.
I I had the privilege of going to the
tree, and eating of its luscious fruit,
until thoroughly satisfied. The fruit
here is grand. Far surpasses what
we get at home, as they are gathered
and ripened prematurely, for ship
ping, and not allowed to get thorough
ly ripe. The vegetables are In abund
ance here. f?n Joyed. i dinner today

I must say, before closing. God is
} lessing us with a good meeting down
here. People are getting saved. We
go farther south, in a few days, to
start a meeting at Wehster, Fla.
