demonstrates that that basket is not a

first to what is necessa'y br bis own

his stock and see how much of these
necessaries he can produce from bis

It is understood that S. M. Sayford,
the evangelist, wbo bas been preacn
ins day and night to crowded audi
ences, in the Court Street Cumberland
Presbyterian church, for two weeks,
is about to close bis labors. He came
to Memphis a stranger, but has msde
a friend and admirer of every man
and woman who made bis acquaint
ance or heard his sermons. The pub
lie soon wearies of the fiery, unlnmed
fanatic, the rampant, riproaring re
vivalist. But Mr. Sayford has con
B'aiitly grown in public favor; thoBe
wbo heard him once were se'isd with
iin irresistible desire to hear him
airain. and it can to truthfully raid
thiit he is tHe mott popular evangtlist
that ever visitul and labored with the
people of Memphis. Mr. Sayford's
power as a pulpit orator is a mystery.
Ii is uot his logic, for others a-gue as
well ; it is not the vigor and vividness
of his irr urination, far others paint
pictures equally ui beautiful. It mutt
be then because of the piety and earn
estness he displays in a 11 bis utter
ancesbecause he shows he is
, cot laboring for fame or no
' toriety, but for the good of
humanity because all his great
intellectual powers, so admirably
'balanced and blended, are brought into
requisition in every sermon and their
action is delightfully harmonious.
'There is neither too much nor too lit
tle of any single quality. The judg
ment and the imagination, a pure
t.l-ta and a nrm hfnrt. hold each
-other in perfect equipoise, and his ser
mons are models of beauty, a fountain
of living waters. Ilia faculty for fix
ing the attention and enlittlng the
-sympathy ef an audience is marvel
ous; he can neither be misunderstood
nor heard with indifference, and he
makifhia way to the heart, not by
rant, scarecrows and mi niuhimlmn
appeals, but through the intellectual
facult es. Mr. Sayford has studied the
'hearts of men a ad has thoughtfully
'schooled his own, aad no one better
understands all the avenues by which
to reach the intellect and the sympa
thies. His voice is full, clear and
musica', snd his sermons are a suc
cession cf plain truth, brilliant
thought and delivered with
ffnict- iiiu ri snd with occa
sional outbursts of impassioned
eloquence. There is a wondrous fas
cination about the man, and in leav
ing Memphis, all denomirn'ions and
aU who have heard him unite in the
hope that be may long be spared, a
blessing tj mankind, a light to the
world, before he exchanges the pulpit
for the throne. But Mr. Siybrd is
4jxirg his mettil powers aad his
abilities, of great
ihnm-Vit. and never fails to interest
the iublic. His sermons on tne mar
riage ring have been read with great
avidity by the American people, in
deed, it may be said that for the pa )t
four weeks he hai bad the largest au
diences tbtt any speaker has ever had,
during the same length of time, sIdcs
the creation of tho world, lor his
sermons are delivered to an immense
couconrse of pePlei pubnsnea in
500 Monday morning newspapers, and
it is safe to say that his Sunday morn
ing sermons are henrd and read by
1.000 0D0 people. The privilege of ad
dressing such a multitude iuipojes on
Mr. Talmane grave responsibilities
But be hai the frailties of other men,
and his set "ions are a mixture of truth
and error, eense and nonsense, fact and
atuimlitv. In his recent sermon to
young girls he conjures, implores, begs
and hi seeches them net to marry
man who is not a Christian, and then
tikes the position that marriages are
made in heaven, and that a man and
woman made br eaoh other, as surely
ai Eve was made for Adam, will meet
and marry, though born ai f r as the
rlna ojuinrinr. If such unions are
fareordalned. we would ask Mr. Tal
mane how can the girls he advies to
marry no man who is not a Chritt an
help from marrying the redemption
less sinner preoidined forber? What
is the use of advising girls whose
destiny fate has already immutably
6xed. Tbe records of the divorce
mils, the exoerienco of the civilized
world, show that irreligious men no
more make lad husbands than re
littlon makes aod husbands. This is
a matter which depends on sentiment,
conireulalilv and compatibility ol tern
neruuicnt. Creeds have nothing to do
with It. John Wesley and his wife
were Christinas, but there was noth
iug but discord, strife, bitterness and
hale between them. Wesley's mother
married a Christian, a preacher, and
wan forced to seDaru'e from him. A
charmina cirl married Martin Luther,
and he was a cruel, tyrannical, mean
husband. John Milton was a Chris
tian, but he took a malicious delight
in making his two wives miserable.
David was a man after Goi's own
heart, but he did not make things ai
together lovely for his wives ; neither
did Swlo mon nor Abraham. On the
other hand the most ungodly men
as often make good husbands an tho
moHt righteous. R. G. In?ersoll is a
model huBband, kind, tender and si
feclioiiht). Many of the most devout
Christians, pillars in the church, aro
cross, fault-finding, sottiugy and hate
ful (but they are despised by their
wives, while thoir irreligious neigh
bor?, who live tJ rra'xe their
nives happy, are to indignant
at the cruelties that they are
Inclined to administer poisonal
ehatlisomont to the brutal hus
band. According to Taltoage oaly
men who are professing Christians
make good husbands, while the pagan
priests and the outside barbarians In
sist that only heathens can make
wives Lanov. Iu selecting husbands,
it is not safe for girls to make a test of
creeds, empty professions. It is tbe
ircoi citizm. the) chlvalric. sweet tern-
D , - r
pereo genial young man who makes
the model husband. Girls should
therefore be advised to marry oaly a
man who is true, hoaorable and up
right, the man given to noble deeds,
to Genuine goodness, tbe man whom
she can admire and love with all her
heart and toul. Ssch a man can be
as safely trusted as the most sancti
monious professor of religion. ' This
can bs demonstrated in this city as in
everv ether. There are as many good
hutbauda among non-professing Chris
tians as among the denominations.
There is nothing in all this against
Christianity. But it does show that
there are better tests of good husbands
than of t aeir creed.
