Elder Williams is a captain all over
in religious matters. He conducts his
religious services as far as possible
with the strictest decorum, and Sun
day's baptizing was no exception to
the rule. Of course, an occasional
breaking out of the "oh be joyful" fer
vor cannot be avoided. Some of the
new members, especially the women,
will get uncontrolably happy and re
lieve themselves with a few earnest
shoutse that make the welking ring.
One of the men raising out of the
water gave expression to his blissful
content on Sunday by exclaiming in a
stentorian voice, "Do white folks done
beat me out of my critter,' n' he was
a good horse, but dey can't beat me
out on die ligion, for sush I'1 got it;
bress Go, I'se got it snah. Hallelui
We were pleased to find that while
there were several white persons
present, no one ventured to indulge
V in the hateful practice of ridicuaing
V the colored people in the exercise of
their sacred ceremonies.
Elder Jack has good cause to be
lproud of last Sunday's works It was
donducted with a proper regard for
the proprieties of religious observance
and will redqund much to his credit as
a religious teacher among his race.
