SOL SMITH RUSSELL.
The appearance ?>l Sol Smith Russell in
this city next Thursday evening, tit the
Aciuleiny of Music, on the occasion of the
Klks' henoflt, in the great modern drama
of "A Bachelor's Romance," promises to
draw the largest audience ever seen at the
Academy since it was opened five years
ago. Mr. Russell i-- a master in charac?
ter delineation, and in his part of "Da?
vid" the guardian of "Sylvia,"' the
daughter of an old friend, he has shown
himself at his best. The story Iis one of
self-abnegation finally rewarded, and is
well worthy of the actor and the order
which gives the entertainment. The Be?
nevolent Protective Order of Klks has
won a deservedly wide reputation for
their magnificent benefactions, ami,
when the size of the cityai.d the strength
of the organization are considered, there
is no place upon which t hey have a greater
claim than the city of Koanoke. It goes
without saying that the entertainment
next Thursday evening, will he the grantl?
est ami most successful one ever given by
the order here, and those desirous of at?
tending will have to exert themselves
vigorously in order to obtain sitting room
on that occasion.

will be of interest to his congregation in
A tall, sad faced man, with rather buu
hair, high cheek bones anil a generally
hungry look upon him. came down the
elevator at the Killlball this morning,
and as he stood in the arcade, a seedy
looking individual approached with a look
of pleasure on his face, anil stretching
out his hand he said:
"Howdv. Tom, I'm sho' glad to see
you. Mighty sorry them fellers didn't
give von your seat. How's the cause,
ami how's the folks down in Thomson:"
"I'm glad to know you, my friend,"
said the tall man, "but I think you've
made a mistake. My name's not 'loin,
I haven't lost any seat ami I don't know
anything about Thomson."
"Ain't your name Tom Watsotr" asked
the Populist. "If it aint't, well you sho'
must be his twin, or his ghost."
??Xo," replied the stranger, "my name
is not Tom Watson. I am Dr. Brough?
ton. 1 am it Baptist minister and haven't
lost any seat- in Congress. 1 don't live in

A tan tu that Dr. Uroughton has been
mistaken for Tom Watson, and yet be is

is used to being mistaken for some one
else, for when he was in Lynchburg a
crowd waited near a restaurant for half
i an hour and followed at bis 'heels think
inc that he was Buffalo Mill. In Rich?
mond he was mistaken for Henry Irving
ami now he has been [mistaken for Tom
Watson. He says that be is the most
patient man in the world and is resigned
to almost anything.
The Baptists ol Atlanta are being
shaken up .in a lively manner by Dr.
Broughton, who has come from Virginia,
at the invitation of Dr. McDonald to eon
duet a series of meetings at the Second
church. Dr. Broughton is the most natu?
ral, ras well as the most powerful
preacher, who has visited Atlanta in, a
lie is tall and angular, but when be

with the power of the Holy Spirit, his

Dr. Broughton advised all Christians
first to make sure that, they were saved.
This was a blessed assurance, but all
Christians did not have it. They should
have, for the Bible say- that all who he
licve on the l,ord .le-us Christ shall lie
saved. He knew that he believed and
he knew that (Sod would never go back

earnestly to God. There was something
in a closet, lie didn't know what it was,
hut he knew that power cntne fiom prayer
in a closet.
Dr. Droutthton related *an incident in
Iiis ministry. There was a young man
who had been licensed tu preach l?y his
church just before he took charge ;if it.
lie was a young man of few gifts, lie
bad been raised up .in the town. After
he had been to the seminary for two yeais
he returned to visit Iiis friends in Hotlll
oke. He thought it would be nothing but
courtesy to invite him to preach, lie did
so. The young man agreed to sneak.
Dr. Broughton said bo did not. tell any of
bis deacons that the young man was go
ing to preach, and be did not even tell
bis wife, for fear that~sho would tell the
deacons. If they bad known it they
would not have come to church. Sunday
arrived and the young man came into
the lower room of the church. He went
off into a little room in the corner.
"In a few minutes," said Dr. Broug
tou, "I went to the room and opened the
door. There was that boy lying Hat down
on bis face on the carpet, praying to God.
I went in and fell down beside him, and,
putting my arm around bis neck, we
prayed together for power from (Jot.
When that young man of meagre attain
incuts faced the congregation, bis face
was illuminated, and be preached one of
the most powerful sermons I ever beard."
In a calm, conversational tone. Dr.
1 trough ton told of a visit he bad made to
Luray caverns in Virginia. The guide
gave him a candle and be went down to
the depths of t he cavern. He.saw noth?
ing beautiful there. There were stalac?
tites and stalagmites, but. they were cold
and dead. After awhile the guide un?
rolled a ribbon and touched bis candle to
the cud of it. instantly there was a blaze
and a calcium light IIa red up. The sta
Inctltes and stalagmites were all aglow,
angels seemed to be hovering over the
place, and it was the most magnificent
scene he had ever witnessed.
Thus it was with the truths of the
Bible. Man might study it and see its
stalactites and stalagmites by the light,
of hi-; little candle of intellect anil there
would '??.* no beauty in them, but let the
calcium light of God fall upon them ami
the whole Scriptures would glow with
brilliance and beauty. Dr. Broughton's
description and climax was dramatic.
Bob Ingersoll knew all about the Bible,
but be ditl not know the Bible Unless
tt Christian knew the Bible he would be
cold und dead. That was the secret of so
many dead churches, they were churches
of influence, but not of power. Jesus
Christ had no influence, but he bad power
to ?peak and the dead would come crawl?
ing out of their gi a ves. Paul had no in?
fluence, not enough to keep out of jail,
but he had power enough to shake the
prison doors oil' their hinges.
"I thank Cod,'* said Dr. Broughton. in
the latter part of his sermon, "that I
haven't got any better sense than to be?
lieve the Bible. I don't want to know
all about the Bible, but I want to know
the Bible. If the Bilde had said that
.1 cuiah swallowed the whale, i would have
believed it, just as I believe that the
whale swallowed Jonah.',

IX MEMORY" OF N BTTIE CALUWELL.
By Her Friend, Mr*. .1. A. Titnbcrlnke.
One, who in life's fair morning.
From earth's cold and clouded gray,
Turned to meet the golden dawning
In the land of perfect day
Who, with pnle hands folded lovely,
?leepcth w tie re the lilies blow.
From the realms so Drill and In ly
Conies to meet me here below.
Tell us not our loved and lost ones
Who have found the fairer shor
Can forget us, sadl> toiling,
Ami return to us no more,
for the spirit world around tt
Lieth closer than wo dream,
And gives purer thoughts and Holder
Daily felt, but still unseen.
In the hours of grief and sorrow
Whe i the shadows seem to fall.
Black and hard across oui pathway
lake seme grim and stormy wall.
Unseen hands shall gently lead us,
Ulllicnrd v oices come to cheer,
l.oviug eyes bend softly o'er us.
Till we know our loved are near.
When for us the solemn morning
oi the dawn celestial breaks.
When for us i he solemn shadows
Flee away and life awakes
To that realm where all that's noble
In our nature shall expand,
(Snide us ever, O, ye ye loved ones,
Upward to the unseen land.
