His IKscourse at the Methodist Church
A Great Organizer.
The Methodist Episcopal Church of
Palatka begins the new conference year
under the most favorable auspices, and
it will in all probability prove to be one
of the most successful in its history, both
spiritually and materially. The new
pastor, Rev. Francis It. Bridges, assigned
to this church by the Florida Annual
Conference of the Methodist Episcopal
Church, South, at its recent meeting at
Leesburg. has been given a most cordial
welcome by the members, while Mr.
Bridges himself has entered upon his
new field of labor in the most exemplary
and zeuloua spirit. The new pastor is a
native Florid ian, and comes to Palatka
with a reputation as a preacher, and
especially a a worker and organizer
second to that of none in Florbla. With
an experience of ten years in the Mas
ter's service, nine of which he has been
in connection with the Florida Annual
Conference, and with the ground work
laid at a noted theological seminary, Mr.
Bridges will undoubtedly do great good
in the Palatka church, and will get good
also. At Leesburg, hii last appointment,
he was greatly IikJ, and the members
of the church of Palatka are congratu
lating themxelves npon securing an ex
The church parsonage has been refitted
with new carpets, furniture and trim
mings, and with a new coat of paint is
now a comfortable home for the new
On Sunday morning Mr. Bridges I
preached an earnest and edifying aer-
mon to an interested and attentive con
gregation, choosing as his text from the
twenty-second verse of the ninth chapter
of the Gospel according to Mark "But
if thou canst do anything, have compas
sion on ns and help ns." Those present
expressed the opinion that the sermon
was one of the most earnest I
eloquent ever delivered in this church
and all were greatly impressed
with the preachers powers as an
orator and' as a sermonizer. The
most noticeable feature of the dis
course was the great earnestness of the
speaker, carrying with it the impress of
honesty of purpose and a depth of faith
that is indispensable to a minister of tlie
Goxpel, if he would do the good that his
Our space forbids an extended report
of this most excellent sermon, but the
church can be congratulated on the ac
quisition of its new pastor.
Yesterday morning a reporter enjoyed
a very pleasant and profitable conversa
tion with Mr. George Hutchinson, of
Crescent City, who was on hia way to
Jacksonville by the early Cuban Fast
Mail, on the Jacksonville, Tampa and
Key West Railway. Mr. Hutchinson is
engaged quite extensively in the manu
facture of fertilizer. His experiments
and experience in that line have been
ample to give bia judgment value, and
he confirmed the opinion expressed by
contributors to Tux Palatka Nkws that
fertilizers made from decomposed veget
able matter is of inestimable value in the
cultivation of plant growth of a per
manent nature, such as trees, especially
in toil as light as is that of Florida. Mr.
Hutchinson reports bis business as ex
ceeding his most sanguine anticipation,
which seems to show that our fruit
growers are learning to depend leas upon
foreign productions in t!iat line, and
more upon home ami nature's productions.
