REV. JO McLESKEY
Gone to Receive tie Welcome. Plan-
r. , dits. . ' -
Yes, our old friend and brother, the
brave old hero and soldier of the cross
-Brother Joseph". McLeskey is gone.
In fancy I can hear him pleading oh!
so earnestly with aliens from Christ,
those that were wandering in darkness,
though anxious to feel and realize that
loving Savior's love and pardon and feel
that they , were permitted to see that
marvelous light and love of a tender,
- sympathizing friend and Savior.
As he would hear them rejoice in a
Savior's love, as he would be almost
exhausted with his fervent appeals to
- explain the Gospel as it were in deed
and in truth, ho would turn to get a
sup of cool water to revive him a little.
Oh! how often at old Antioch, one of
his favorite places of worship, that calm,
benignant smile, that he was the happy
possessor of, would spread over his face.
right on talking and exhorting and sing
ling the praises of his Heavenly Father's
name. ; It can, be truthfully said of him
tllat a gallant ( old soldier of the cross
has gone to liis reward to revive the
blessed words of his Master, whom he
so humbly, submissively and faithfully
served. - .
It has been the happy privilege of
the writer and family to have this good
man, for he was a good man as well as
a good preacher, to share with us our
humble repast, .all of which he always
seemed to heartily enjoy. And again
he was very entertaining in his convCr-
sation. nis visits were very eunymgr
anyone always felt benefited by them,
lie always was positive in his views or
ideas on any subject. He was a strong
advocate for firmness and truthfulness.
He would so often say in his sermons,
It lii ur a a rir inn f s i m rfi c a rm l iv ! t II
the idea or thought that he was ex
plaining, like this: "It is the truth now
whether you believe it or not. '
Again ho wanted you to stand close
by what you claimed to represent; for
instance, if you were a Cumberland
Presbyterian, say so: u you were a
Methodist or any other denomination,
say so. One little incident occurred
way back yonder, seventeen years ago,
when he first commenced his minis
terial labors at old Antioch church;
He came out with Jerry A. Cloar and
spent the night with us. On going to
the door to meet them his salutation to
me was: "Well, well, sister Ann; I am
certainly glad to be favored with this
happy opportunity." He had known
nio in former days as a happy child,
one whb knew ought of care or sorrow.
A great and good man has fallen in
Israel. His death has made a great
vacant place in the church work. As
a "preacher he was sublime. He has
preached and labored with thousands,
but his work is done now. He rests in
peace. , .

WORLD'S LARGEST DIAMOND.
Story of Finding, Cutting and Final
Disposition of Cullinan.
Dr. George Frederick Kunz, iu "The
Two Largest Diamonds," in the June
"For twelve years the Excelsior dia
mond enjoyed its primacy, but on Jan.
25, 1905, the 'greatest diamond known
to the world was found in open-working
No. 2 of the premier mine, in the
Transvaal .Colony, South Africa, and
from the finding to th cutting of this
magnificent stone and its final disposal,
its history is a most romantic one.
"The day's work at the mine was
over, and Frederick Wells, the surface
manager, was making his usual rounds.
Glancing along one side of the deep ex
cavation, his eye suddenly caught the
gleam of a brilliant object far up on
the bank. He lost no time in climbing
up to the spot where he had noted the
glint of light.'" He had not been mis
taken; it was really a brilliant crystal.
He tried to pull it out with his fingers,
and as this proved impossible he sught
to pry it out with the blade of his pen
knife. To his surprise the knife blade
broke without causing the stone to
yield. - Confident now that the crystal
must be a-very large one, ho dug out
the earth about it, thinking for a mo
ment that, contrary to all experience in
the mine, the stone might be attached
to a piece of the primitive rock. When
he discovered that this was not the case,
he begau to doubt that the object was
really a diamond. He said afterward:
" 'When I took a good look at the
stone stuck there in the side of the pit
it suddenly flashed across me that I had
gone insane that the whole thing was
imaginary. I knew it could not be a
diamond. All at once another solution
dawned upon me. The boys often play
jokes on one another. Some practical
joker, thought I, has planted this fiuge
chunk of glass here for me to find it
He thinks I will make a fool of myself
by bringing it into the office in a great
state of excitement, and the story will
be told far and wide in South Africa.'
"Determined to test the stone on the
spot before proceeding further, Wells
rubbed off the dirt from one side of its
faces with his finger, and soon con
vinced himself that it was not a lump
of glass, but a diamond crystal, appar

ently of exceptional "whiteness and
purity. With the aid of a larger blade
of his knife he finally succeeded in pry
ing out his stone and bore it away with
him to the office of tho mine. It was
cleaned and, to the astonishment of all,
was found to have a weight of 302J
carats, more than three times that of
any other diamond that has been dis
covered. Before many hours had passed
the telegraph carried tidings to all parts
of the world that the greatest diamond
of this or any other age had been
brought to fight. Mr. Wells is said to
have received a reward of $10,000 from
the company for his discovery.
"T. M. Cullinan, founder and Chair
man of the Premier Company and one
of the great prize winners in the lottery
of South African speculation, named
the diamond after himself; others have
called it. the Premier, and several dif
ferent names have been proposed."
