t Resting and Improving
Dear Courier:-Finding my
self in need of rest, my church
' kindly gave a me month's vaca
tion. My good brother, deacon J.
e M. Geer, and his noble wife, sug
gested the vacation on condition
that they jointly be allowed to
bear my expenses.'
With a grateful heart I ac
cepted their generous offer, and
after spending a few days at
Glenn Sprintge, fl T.. m nW
at thIs famous summer.-meort,
' Tallidah Falls, Ga., 8,000 feet
d above sea level, breathing the
e finest air and drinking the very
L- best water. I shall never be able
e to tell how much I appreciate
r the kindness of my church, and
the thoughtful liberality of Bro.
I1 and Sister Geer, which ha - made
r it possible for me to take the
3- rest and to spend the time where
, I feel that I have been so much
t benefitted. I trust to return to
e my church soon, for there is
Lt nothing on earth that I loye so
Is much as the work of the Master
among the people I love so well.
I This is one of the nicest places
to rest I have ever seen. The
,t scenery is grand beyond descrip
r tion; the mighty onrushing wa
e ters of Tallulah river, foaming,
I leaping, roaring, dashing for
,t hundreds of feet from the first
e to the eighth fall, while the tow
e ering rocks reach up toward the
B sky, In some places to a height
, of 800 feet. Gazing on this won
.derful scenery E think of the om
i nipotency of the God of creation.
11 While listening to the thunder
- ing sound of the mighty wp*,
B1 I think of what John says in
t Revelation 19:6: "And I heard
-as It were the voice of a great
B multitude and as the voice of
B many waters, and as the voice
-of mighty thundrings crying,
r Allelula! for the Lord God omi
nipotent reigneth.' "

The Love Knof
Tying her bonnet under her
She tied her raven riegltin
But not alone in the'ftko
Did she catch her lovely,
But, tying her bonnet under her
She tied a young man's heart
They were strolling togetheri
the hill,
Where the wind comes blowlia 4
merry and chill,
And it blew the curls a frolic
some race
All over the happy, peach-color
ed face;
Till, scolding) and laughing, she
tied them in,
Under her beautiful dimpled
And it blew a color as bright as
the bloom
All over the cheeks of the pret
tiest girl
That ever imprisoned a romping
Or, in tying a bonnet under her
Tied a young man's heart
Steeper and steeper grew the
Madder, merrier, chillier still
The western wind blew down,
and I d
The wild cks with the lit
tie maid, -
As tying her bonnet under her
She tied a ygoung man's heart
0, western windl do you think
it was fair
To play such tricks with her
floating hair .
To gladly, gleefully do your best
To blow her against the young
man's breast,
Where he has gladly folded
her in,
And kissed her mouth and dim
pled chin?
