ELBERT 1. A U., EDITOr.
JUST A WORD.
Mr. Job L,. Hughey, alias "Broad
Itiver," should feel better. He relieved
himself of a good deal of filth in last
week's Voice. Finding himself entirely
penned and in a hole, he stamps, as un
worthy of his notice, what he is unable
to answer without stultifying himself,
and then proceeds to muddy the water
with a whole lot of irrelevant things
about The Herald and News and its
editor, that have nothing at all to do
with the question at issue.
Now, Mr. Hughey, we will notice
very briefly, and we trust satisfactorily,
that part of your reply later on, but
come back to the question we raised.
We do not intend that you shall
--- dodge by going off' into abuse of The
Herald and News, and thus fool the
people and make them believe you are
a great man.
You -published the charge against
Senator Mower and a Mr. Koon' of
Prosperity, that they were distributing
registration certificates to negroes. You
say you do not believe Senator Mower
is guilty. Very well, then. That still
leaves "a Mr. Koon of Prosperity," and
as you particularly say Senator Mower
is not guilty, we co3clude you believe a
Mr. Koon is. Now, The Herald and
News said that was a very serious
charge. Not so much against "a Mr.
Koon of Prosperity," as against Mr.
Beden bau zh, the Supervisor of Regis
tration. The time for issuing certifi
cates of Registration closed the first
Monday in July. Now, Mr. Hughey,
the point The Herald and News made
was that "a Mr. Koon of Prospe.
could not be distributing,.stration
WA- U tfica to ;s contrary to law
unless they were first issued and signed
by the Supervisor, and if he was doing
It the Supervisor must be a party to it.
Now, Mr. Hughey, that is the point.
Tell us how a Mr. Koon could dis
tribute registration certificates to ne
groes unless he first obtained them
from the Supervisor. Yes, that is be
neath your ;notice. We have heard of
that sort of reason before, .but it wont
work this time, Mr. Hughey. We say
again, if you have the evidence to sup
port your charge fetch it along, or with
draw your charge, and apologize to the
persons you have wronged.
To Mr. Job L. Hughey: The balance
of your "reply" is personal in its na
ture and a tirade against me. In reply
ing to that I shall be brief and pointed,
and shall not hide behind The Herald
and News nor the editorial we. I want
you to understand that I am talking
directly and pointedly to you, Mr. Job
L. Hughey. In all that I have written
or said of you I have been. polite and
courteous. I have given you no occa
sion for the temper you display in your
reply. You have disregarded all the
rules of polite breeding and de.scended
-to the language of the blackguard.
There is only one thing that I feel called
Supon to notice, though I might say
that with your past record it ill be
comes you to be talking abo2t blood,
etc., but I care nothing for that sort of
thing. Your opinion of what The Her
ald and News has done or has not done
does not concern we mn the least. Bnt
when you say that I "deliberately
falsified" my report of the prohibition
committee meeting, or any other re
port for.that matter, you utter a mali
cious lie. Now, Mr. Hughey, this is my
reply to that part of your reply which
is directed against me, personally, and
I am personally responsible for it, and
will not discuss the subject further in
the newspapers. My address is New
.berry, S. C., and I am not trying to
bulldoze, nor am I indulging in bragga
docio,'-but I am talking deliberately and
Iwmean whatlIsay. E.H.A ULL.
-TO ENFOECE THE DIsPENsARY.
Governor Tillwan says he is going to
have the dispensary law enforced at all
hazards. He will also continue to
search private houses if he thinks it
necessary to the enforcement of the law.
He proposes to devote most of his at
tention to the close of his present term
to the enforcement of the law. We ex
pected him to do as much, but it seems
to us it would be better to go ahead and
enforce the law and not be making so
many threats and talking so much in
He -proposes also to take a new start
with the towns and give all of them an
opportunity to share in the profits if
they will aid him in the enforcement
of the law. If the larger towns and
cities will not do this, then the Legis
lature will be expected to pass a metro
~ politan police bill. In other words
local self government is to be abolished
and the whbole business turned over to
a few men at the State capital, who
will have things their own way. 'i he
people may put-up with this for awhile,'
but it will not last long. The dispen
sary is a bad law and is bound to go
sooner or later. The wore rigidly"it is
-enforced the sooner it will go. It is
contrary to the spirit of our institu tions
and has no prohibition feature iu it ex
capt to prohibit the individual from
selling whiskey. But as for drinking
- it and getting all one wants to drink,
it rather offlers an inducement in this
direction than to contribute anything
to prohibit the consumption. A pro
hibitionist from principle, and one who
wants the sale of whiskey prohibited
on account of the evils resulting from
its intemperate use cannot consistently
support thbe dispensary.
And the ad vocates of the dispensary
may expect whiskey to be sold outside
of the dispensary as long as those who
hurrah for the dispeasary continue to
buy their whiskey from these places in
preference to the dispensary. A whole
army of constables will be un'able to
stop them. Gov. Tillmian is going to
remove trial justices who do not act as
he wants them, and juries who fail to
convict we suppose he will treat as did
Judge P>enet the colored juror in Co
lumb~ia-dismiss them from the panel.
Sheriffs he will report to the Legisla
ture. But do not sheriffs hold their
ottices very much as do Gov. Tillman
and the Legislature, by election of the
people, and they are responsible to the
* people and not to Gov. Tillman nor his
one Tillman will have his hands full
is he carries out all of his threats. A
law that rcquires all of these heroic
treatments to its proper enforcement is
evidently a bad law and will never be
The Herald and News is not advising
its violation. As long as it remains a
law we shall not violate it. We trust
that we may have peace, and that no
more lives may be lost on account of
this law. Enough blood has- already
beensbed to denominate this the bloody
TBE COMMITTEE'S ADDRESS.
The address issued by Senator Irby
ana his committee is not calculated to
arouse much enthusiasm on -the. part
of the conservatives who want to stand
by the nominees of the September con
vention. It is narrow, partisan, mean,
prejudiced and a misrepresentation of
the facts, and has not the suspicion of
patriotism or a desire for the unity and
peace. of the people of the State in a
single line or utterance from beginning
to end. The unity of the white people,
we believe, is the last thing that he
and his committee want. Such a state
of affairs would give them more uneasi
ness than anything else that could hap
pen. It would threaten a continuance
of their power for it is only by keeping
the people divided that they have any
hope of political existence. A majority
of the conservatives of the State, we
believe, opposed nominating another
ticket and they took that position be
cause they wanted a cessation of politi
cal strife and from patriotic motives.
Oi account of this position no nomina
tions were made. Now here comes
Senator Irby and his committee and
talks of every one who does not
the knee to him and t.x ring as an
Independent a iaying plans to use
th .: ro vote two years hence.
Senator Irby and his committee pre
tend to represent the Democratic party
of South Carolina, but if there ever was
issued a factional address, the one
from his committee will take the prize
as such. It speaks of the Conserva
tives as if they were enemies to Dem
ocracy, and one of the reasons for voting
for a constitutional convention that he
uses, is that the Conservatives are op
posed to such convention. It is fac
tional from beginning to end, and an
effort to arou.e passion and prejudice
and to keep alive all of the old bitter
If we are ever to have peace and good
feeling in this State we must have
broader and more patriotic utterances
from those who are in control and who
Senator Irby says that the main pur
pose of the constitutional convention is
to disfranchise a large portion of our
population by putting a 'property or
educational qualification on suffrage.
That is meant. to strike at the negio,
but it will cut both ways. But we are
not opposed to a convention so much
on this ground, for really sometimes we
feel very strongly that there should be
some sort of qualification- for suffrage,
for many of our people recently have
just been voting as they were told to
vote regardless of what the voter might
have thought was proper.
In his address he says it need not
cost over $50,000, biut when it is through
the cost will not fall under twice that
The trouble is there is no telling
whbat radical changes that convention
will make in the organic law once it
At the present time the best thing
we can do is to vote down the propo
sition for a constitutional convention.
A train was held up near Richmond
last week and entered by train robbers
and about $182,000 taken from the ex
press car. This sort of thing is getting
vel-y common. The same day there was
another similar robbery in another
part of the country. Would it not be a
good idea to arm the crews with Win.
chesters so that they would be equal
to the few robbers who hold up trains.
The Augusta Chronicle suggests that
thbe ex press messengers get up enough
nerve to refuse to open the safes and the
robbers would be powerless. To kill the
messenjgers would not open the safes.
Something should be done.

Bill Arp writes an interesting article
on marriages and wedding presents and
customs now and customs in the good
old days. Read it. Yon will find it on
the fourtb page.
We want it distinctly understood
that The Herald and News is not the
organ of any faction and for that matter
is riot an organ at all but a newspaper
abe't is not tied to anybody's coat tail.
Tihe Herald and News is not opposed
to Dr. Pope on any personal grounds.
True be does not personally like the
editor of The Herald and News but ir
that were the only reason for not sup
porting him he shogld have'our hearty
support. We have demonstrated on a
former occasion tha t we could rise above
personal feelings when the occasion
and the men demanded it. On the occa
sion referred to we gave our hearty sup
port to a man who was not on friendly
terms at the time with the editor of
The Herald and News. We are not
built in a narrow and prejudiced mould.
We only men tion thbis because we hea rd
that it has been assigned as a reason for
our failure to endorse Dr. Pope.
WVe cannot support him for the same
reasons that we opposed nominating
an cpposition ticket. We do not see
how any one who opposed nominations
in that convention can support Dr.
Pope. If we were going to favor an
opposition ticket we would much prefer
a candidate who had been our way of
thinking longer than Dr. Pope. He is
too recent a convert from the ring to re
ceive our support for the high~est office
in the State. Then he is a bolter or an
independent and when we went in the
primaries we obligated ourselves to
stand by the nominations. Dr. PopeI
may get lots of votes and he may be
elected. If he does we will not claim
any share of the crei fr the vicor.

church, was then introduced and he
DR. COZBY ASA PREACHER.
Whatever abiding impressions Dr. Cozby may
have made by his distinguished character as citi
zen and pastor, in our social and educational Ife,
as brother beloved, associate and friend, he will
be remembered best among us as a faithful, ear
nest, impressive and edifying preacher His ma
ture age, rich experience. superior gifts which
were refined and intensified by patient and in
dustrious cultivation, would have given him
prominence and even eminence in any commun
ity here in our own State, or wherever he might
have been called to labor. Modest in self-appre
ciation, disdaining the doubtful arts that lead to
notoriety, "more bent to raise the wretched than
to rise,' the circle of those to whom he minis
tered was never of large dimension, but drew
within it by an ever-increasing expansion those I
who never went away empty or unfed by Gospel
truth. It is with unaffected pleasure that I stand
in this place, sanctified by his public ministra
tion to his now shepherdless fold, and bear a tes
timony that will doubtless be corroborated in
similar manner by every attendant on this occa
sion, that, in the eight years of his ministry in
this community, in which time I have had num
berless opportunities to hear him, always gladly
embraced, I cannot recall a single instance in
which he did not preach to my edification and stir
fresh impulse in my Christian life. Somehow or
in some way, the sermons of gu -
manent hold of Me,a .'o-night with little enort,
iftime permi :.. could recall the texts, subjeets
and mo ol the divisions of every one to which I
hay .stened. Prominent among them I shall
never forget a masterpiece of pulpit effort in a
discourse on the Syro-Phicenician w aman preached
in the original church now eight years ago, and
the last I heard from his lips in the Methodist
church last April, on the text, "He gave his life
a ransom for imany." In his quick apprehension
of the true meaniiig of the text, in his natural,
logical and engaging method of its exposition,
always adorned with chaste and graceful lan
guage. and driven home to the.listener's con
sciousness with gentle and persuasive tones, Dr.
Cozby, in our humble judgment, had few equals
and still fewer superiors. In his inmost convic
tion, the ministry was the work which was coi
mitted to him by God. He felt himself to be
God's ambassador. The pulpit was his throne.
And the tbemes which he presented were sur
charged, with feelings of interests of the very
highest moment-the universal and most impor
tant interests of mankind-far beyond those for
which the thunder of Demosthenes rolled in
Athens, far beyond those for which Cicero shook
the Senate-house in Rome. Every thought, atti
tude, look and gesture bore the impress of his
divine commission, and was the outward expres
sion of a deep inward purpose ever struggling up
through his soul, to perform, like his Divine
Exemplar, the work which he had been sent to
do. As he appeared in the sacred desk, clothed
with meek unaffected humility, evidently re
strained by the consciousness of his high respon
sibility and the sense of awe of the divine Pres
ence, the sacred impulse emanating from . him
reached all hearts, and we were made to feel
"There stands the messenger of truth; there stands
The legate of the skies! His theme divine,
His office sacred, his credentials clear.
By him the violated law speaks out
I s thundrs, and by him in strains as sweet
As angels use, the Gospel whispers peace."
In the few moments in which we shall be per
mitted to refresh our memories of Dr. Cozby's
preaching, we shall endeavor to briefly represent
its matter, its method and its motive.
i. Primarily and distinctively Dr. Cozby was a
preacher of doctrine. Now there is doctrinal
preaching, and doctrinal preaching; and it is not
our purpose to represent him as belonging to the
school of antedated scholastics, metaphysical doc
trinal preachers: but he was a firm believer in
the cardinal, fundamental doctrines of revealed
religion, and a most interesting and eminently
successful expositor of doctrinal truth. Doctrine
is something taught:-a preacher of doctrine is a
teacher of scriptural truth, and to represent Dr.
Cr tby as an instructive and edifying teacher of
God's word is to picture him in his true charac
ter. His head and his heart were not ir. conflict
with each other in regard to the saving doctrines
of Christianity, and he constantly set them forth
as the only basis and constitution of Christian
character, and the only ground of hope of eternal
life and heavenly blessedness. What he had
learned, he taught: what he believed, he spoke;
what he felt conv-inced was the truth, lie did not
hesitate to maintain and defend. He had little
sympathy with the modern tendency to move
away from the foundation of right dloctrine. He
repudiated the clamor that is raised in some quar
ters that our Christian churches are dying because
of dloctrinal preaching. He ignored the demand
to convert our pulpits into platforms for the dis
cussion of political, philosophical, scientific or
modern speculative problems, and closed his
ears against the cry fer pure and simple sensa
tionalism. He was convinced that the old Gospel,
proclaimed with apostolic fervor, and with the
unction mf the Holy Ghost, is the only hope for
the human race, and that to-day it remains as
distinctively as in the time of St. Paul, "the power
of God unto salvation to every one that believ'
eth." He therefore avoided "foolish questions,"
and "genealogies," and "science falsely so-called,"
and preached the Word in its simple, sanctifying
power. And here it is just to add that he preached
not only the doctrines universally accepted among
Christians, but wherever the occasion offered .
or demanded, anid especially in the presence of
his own congregation, he proclaimed as he should
the distinctive doctrines of the Calvinistic system
and the Westminster Confession, which he con
scientiously believed to be the truth. And doubt
less those who are members of his congregation
wduld cheerfully? assent to the fact that he made
them not only better Christians, but also better
There was not, how~ever, in Dr. Cozby the
slightest suggestion of sectarian intolerance or

far above any narrow exclusiveness by his breadth
of mind, generosity of heart, and philanthropic
nature. He was not the blind fanatic or illibcral
enthusiast trammelled and handicapped by the
purely traditional interpretatioiis of his owii
creed,h particularly on the Sabbath question and
the individual conception of the well-guarded
doctrine of evolution, and he did not hesitate to
publish to the world his opinions and convictions
always courageously and successfully maintained.
In a word, Dr. Cozby was a man independent in
thought, broad in culture, careful in investiga
tion , and he constantly enriched his sermons not
only with doctrinal truth, but with wealth of illus
tration from the various departments of human
knowledge. There was an atmosphere of invig
orating freshness about his pulpit efforts that
clothed old themes with new interest and made
them appear in new and attractive light. He was
a man of thought and gave his devoted parish
ioners the full enjoyment of his varied literary
and theological attainments.
2. We now hasten to consider more briefly the
method of Dr. Cozby's preaching. It conformed
to the most approved rules of homiletical arrange
ment. The order wvhich he pursued was-most
natural, logical and expository. and remarkably
clear in thought and presentation. He saw in the.
test one great central thought around which all
his arguments, sub-divisions and illustrations fe:l
inito unity, and all conspired to produce a har
monious and ineffaceable impression. If he had
ainy defect--and in the mention of it I stand my
e'f condemned-it was in the uniform use of the
nianuscript, which, however, he always read with
grace and excellent effect. H is c.ultivated rhetor
ical taste, and his purpose always to be exact in
thoug.t and expression, doubtless led him to
this ac tice, wh:ch long continued, finally set
tled into a pardlonable habit, But while this was
his general method of pulpit preparation, some
of his most excellent sermons and addresses were
delivered entirely without a manuscript, arid they
were so free from criticism that one cannot but
wvonder why he should submit to the restraint
and labor of written discourse. But whatever his
reasons, which were perfectly satisfactory to him
self, his pulpit manner was so full of earnestness
and pathos, so.free from either affection or dull
ness,'so full of reverence and conscious responsi
bility, that one quickly forgot that his words were
coming from any source other thiain the immediate
prompting and inspiratioii of his own heart, He
seemed to be like one drawing nigh to the flaming
presence of Jehovah, and uinder the sense of the
awful majesty, removing his shoes from off his
feet as the place whereon he stood was holy
groundl. Is whole attitude and demeanor were
characterized by reverence and modesty. He dis
dained every species of cant or affectation, aiid
madIe absolutely iio effort to play ihe orator, His
prayers particularly were full of profound rever
ence and awe as he addressedl "the high and the
lofty One who inhabiteth eternity," the Lord God
Almighty, "who dweliest in the heavens," "for.
giving iniquity transgression and sin, but who
will in no wvise clear the guilty." As he led us
within the vail, into the risen presence of the
Divine M1ajesty, our feet would stay, and our
hearts wiere hushed as he appeared before the
mercy-seat for us. I am unable to see how those
who attended the services conducted by Dr. Cozby
could suppress the feeling that they had been
brought into the very presence of God, and of
Jesus Christ, the Reveiationi of our Heavenly
"At church with meek and unaffected grace
His looks adorned the venerable place:
Truth from his lips prevailed with double sway,
Aiid tools who came to scoff remained to pray."
H astening iiow for want of further time for this
address, we wvishi to characterize, finally. the nio
tive of Dr. Cozby's preachiing. This, as it should
be. is best expressed by himself, In oiie of his
serimons on '"The Miinistry of Reconciliation"
which with a number of others judiciously se
lected were generously loaned me by his beloved
companion and friend in preparation for this oc
casion-he says: "I sometimes wonder, my breth
ren, whether we who are commissioned to preach
the Gospel, and you who are exhorted to hear it,
do not to a great degree overlook the real end af
the preaching of the Gospel. Sonie think, it would
seem, that the main object is to belabor men on
account of their sins-to declare the wrath of
God against all unrighteousness and sin-and
thereby to frighteni men into a course of holy
living. Well, we must admit that the Gospel has
a wrathfui phase, for in his letter to the Romans
the apostle declares that in it 'the wrath of God is
revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and
unrighteousness of men,' and again, 'Knowing
the terror of the Lord, we persuade men': but still
the object in preaching is not mainly to denounce
sin, but it is beautifully and compendiously ex
pressed in the words, The Mlinistry of Reconcilia-'
tion. We ministers occupy no judgment seat,
nor are the people arraigned befo're us to have
sentence passed upon them, but our business is
to declare the Gospel-ours is the ministry of
His one supreme and over-mastering pur
pose, therefore, was by the gentle wooings of the
Gospel of Peace to point to the humble, contrite
sinner the plan of salvation andthe path to rcn
cialiatio2 with God. The word of God was "I
his heart as a burning fire and hecouhdnot
forbear to warn the neglectful, to confor the
penitent, and preach to troupled omsciencs the
precious cpa.latiois 'f the G e f p i,.
motive was pre cuine:tlv al solely to :ive ninc.
and especially t1o-e to wlim God had cu:miitted
to his charge. His heart went forth in tender
yearning for their souls, a:nd hence we hear him
in the conclusion of a most touching selmon on
the text. "So shall we ever be with the Lord."
pouring out his soul in persuasive exhortation:
"O my beloved congregation, what greater joy
and bliss could I wisa for you than this. that you
might be t.frevcr with the I,vrd, and Ibeliold his
face. O if ou would only come to Christ ac
cording to his invitation, and wak with him all
your days. he would not leave you friend:ess and
desolate when eternity shall swallow up all the
things of time. I labor, I pray. I preah to
yon with this great end in view, that I may win
you to Christ, and that we may ever be with this
glorious Lord. Come to him while lie is calling.
Come to him while he is waiting. Give yourse:ves
wholly to him in Covenant, and he will give him
self wholly to you. May it be that through the
abundant grace of God in his dear Son, we may
all ever be with the Lord."
And this evening. beloved, as I repeat this pa
thetie entreaty in your ears, I feel that it is a
voice now speaking to us from the skies, and from
the near presence of the Lord Almighty, for
which his soul thirsted and in which lie now
rests, he is beckoning us onward and will him
self stand at the pearly gates to welcome us with
glad hallelujahs. At this moment could he ad
dress us from the abode of blessedness in which
he enjoys the ecstacies of eternity, oh, how he
would redouble the earnestness of his admoni
tions and strive to reaniniate our languishing
zeal. "Ie being dead yet speaketh."
"And as a bird each fond endearment tries
To tempt its new-'edged ofispring to the skies,
lie tried each art, reformed each dull delav,
Allured to brighter worlds and led the way."
After the singing of hymn 696 Rev.
E. P. McClintock, of the A. R. P.
church, was introduced and spIoke of
1)R. COZl1Y AS A PASTOR.
A few days before Dr. Coz,y left Newberry
for the last time I spent a morning with him
in his home. It had been ir timated by those
who had a right to know that his (lisease
w. uld probably prove fatal. Tnis made the
lingered with him wider the apprehension
that it might be our laIst interest on earth.
Not a sladow (,ossed I to miWd LboUt the re
union in the eternal hou e, hut I left hIn
Oppres,zeC Wvith WaLW54M)rt the
U-Vii_ in terview did close
our long and close and ar -etionate associa
tion. I spent an evening wi h him when he
came here to look over the field with a view
to sett.lement When lie decided to come,
and brought his family, I was among those
who ga-e him a hearty wel-ome, and all
through the eight years of his pastorate otr
Christian afrection grrw stronger and strong
er. He honored mte with his confidence, and
see.ed to apprecia e mine. He to'd me of
his pleasures and kr.r;%w that I rejaiced in
thent; lie told me of his sorrows and disap
pointments, and knew that he had the sym
pathy of my heart. I nearly always knomw
the purtions of S.ipt ure on which he was
feeding bi- flock, and sometimes went with
him into te honjes of his people, and he
with me into u ine. I thus learned to know
him thoroughly as a Iastor. lie had a any
excellencies and qualifica ions which he had
acquired in hi- lifelong work, and employed
thewM in tils his last field In the maturity of
his powers and in the ripen-ss of his experi
ence. From our limited time I can men
tion only one or two of these. The excellence
which se niedto me to be of first importance
and most suitable for consideration this eve
ning was his cos,ception of the office of pas
tor. He regarded toe office as blood bought.
He saw divine wisdomt in its adaptedness
to the convict ion and conversion or sine,s
and the edifying of saiats, and in addition to
this lie saw that the office was one of the
ascension gifts or out Saviour which lie had
purchased with his blood. And in regard to
his occupancy of this sacret ollice ovrr this
flock he bleved in his heart that le had
been called to it by Gvd. When this church
sent up the call and it had been duiy consid
ered by the Presbytery of South Carolina and
tranlsruitted to his, the liarmony Presbyter3.
a tid by his brethren of that Presbyt--ry placed
in his hanals, le fully weighed all of these,
ani all of the o.hor circuustances in the c vse.
They were all gratifying The full unanimity
of tne members of the church signing the
call, the character of the church, thc judg
ment of his brethren ot both Pre byteries,
the earnest and affecting clause in the call
"we do bereby invite and entreat you to take
the care of our souls," all of these had their
Influence, but that which moved hin to ac
cept the call was a persuasion that they con
stituted an expression of the will of God. in
obedience to that conviction lie came and
took up his work in this place and prosecuted
it till the day ofnis release. Tiis conception
could be seen in all the functions oi his olli -e
and characteriz d his whole conduct.
In the function which has just been dis
cussed, th.it of preaching, whit-. lie was e irn
est and efrective in all of our pulpits, yet
when he stood here in his own, there was a
fervor and a pathos and a solicitude andl an
affectionate yearning that lie experienced no
where else. lie feltin his whole natu e when
he stood here and besought the adherents ol
this chur ch that lie was beseeching tnem in
Christ's steadl to be reconelledh toGodl. when
his euitreaties were tunheed- d he had great
heav.ness of soul. When lie stood here and
instructed and comforted or ieproved and
rebuked, it was with a view to an account to
the King and Head of the Church who had
iitrusted his r-heep to his care as an under
shepherd. The same ap.peared also as lhe
went irom house to house in pastoral work.
He was a regular and frequent visitor in the
hon es oi his people in ali cases of serlotus ill
ness or affliion of any kind. He had learned
lessons ofawlsdom In tue school of atfliction,
and his heart had been mtellowed in tue com
panionship of the .Man or Sorrows and he was
very helpful to the sorrowing and the dis
tressed. Al though sufrering for yeais from anm
insidious disease, lie never spared himself
when there waissorrow of any kind in any of
his homes. In ordinary astoral visitation
he was not so abundant. He loved his peo
ple and greatly enjoyed their c-ompany-, and
re-gretted that he cotu l not mingle mnore
freely with them ;l but his assidluous labors
among the afflicted and his diligent plepara
tion for the hpulpit didl ot, leave as much lime
as lie desired for that form of wor k. While lie
regiretted the fact he was coniscienutlous in it,
as in all his wore. Such, then, as I saw It,
was one phase of the work us a pastor of our
brother whose aeath we mourn this evening
There was one other ehetment in his work
to which I willI allude, It is a (delicate mat
ter, a nd I appreciate the sacred proprieties
of this occasion.i but I cannot forbear f'rom
allnding to It- as one of the very Important
elements in all his work here, and especially
as a pastor. He regarded it so. I heard him
say so time amid a:tain. If his gloritied spirit
is conscions of the debt (if friendship I am
endeavorinig to pay in this part of this service
it is not willing for mec to tak.e my seat until I
have at least ma ntionedh that element in his
work. I i efer to the f'aithful and efficient co
operation of his devoted wife, No other hu
n an acency so eintered into his life and all
the departments of his work as her prudence
and her whole-he.ted sy-mpath v and active
co-operationi. lie knew this well, and I honor
his memory when I sap lie app-,eciatedi the
flact. "H is hear t still safely tirusts in her."
Dr. J. W. Fuinn, of Columbia, who
wasi present, spoke briefly of Dr. Cu%by
in his relations to the Presbaytery. lie
paid him a high tribute for faithfulness
to duty and as a w ise and safe coun
The exercises were then closed with
