As we were planting our gar
den this week, a member of the
church in passing by remarked
that that was what all the pre
achers should be doing instead of
on the loaf, and we acquiesed.
There is entirely too many
bum preachers, going hither and
thither for a hand out. The min- '
isters should respect their calling
by being men and not tramp*
Do you not know that many of
the so-called and self styled min-!
sters are bringing a reproach and
a disgrace upon the profession
Some are actually getting
drunk and falling into the gutters
before sinners and still we have
«ome churches that will support
such men because, of the "tone"
and they ate on their way to h—
and leading many o! the mem
bers with them. Now sem: one
will *ay that the editor should not
say this, when at the sam« time
they are a laughing stock and
stumbling block to the world.
The Gazette has no time and
patience 'with a lying preacher
