"Some people think they can't be

ging. If my child begged that way,
I'd take a brush along and whale
him well. If you got faith by prayer,
what have you done with it ? Faith
is a gift of God, don't see and hear
for mne. I pray for my daily bread,
but I have to hunt for my cornpone
with the sweat running down the hoe
handle. [Laughter.] You put your
arm in a sl:ng and pray for muscle.
A ho, says, 'Mister take your arm
out and g o to that blacksmith shop
and handle the sledge and you'll get
all you want. If you don't take it
out soon you can't lift it out.' You've
got faith enough to move mountains
if you put it in action. God gives
every perfect gift. but the develop
ment of it in every practical sense is
yours. The only kind of faith I
bank on is that of committal, trust
ing in God. You are going round
singing, 'Oh! to he nothing,' and
you've sung it till it is the God's
truth. [Laughter.] You are old
Brother Notbing. and going nowhere.
[Laughter.? I want to be something,
and go somewhere. I'd rather go to
hell than nowhere. [Sensation.] I
have an infinite, consolidated horror
of being nothing. and going nowhere.
-.e not like dumb, driven cattle; be a
hero in the strife.' We are running
on believing in this country. As an
old darkey said : 'It's the principlest
thing here.' Every fellow goes on
the principle of 'he that believeth
not, shall be damned,' and believes
everything to keep him from being
damned. [Laughter.] What are you
going to do with these little fellows
that believe in everything ? Your
begging don't amount to much, for
you don't look as if you had had a
square meal in ten years. The faith
that receives everything and gives
out nothirg don't amount to any
thing. I'm no revivalist. I'm an
humble member of the Georgia con
ference. from whom I got my ap
pointment. If I'm a revivalist, I
have grown to be one just as my
{ finger-nails have grown. I do my
work, and I am happy in it. I am
ashamed of my fellowmen. We are
dying with de:ency. I saw a brdther
slip last night, and when he recov
ered himself he glanced around to
see if any one saw him, and looked
scared. I say to ;'ou, 'Turn loose
and laugh, and it will loosen up your
hide and do you good.' [Laughter.]
It is unnatural to be starchy and
dignified. D)ignity is nothing but
the starch of a shroud. [Applause.]
If you addresscd a merchant as you
Iaddress God, he would have you
tried for lunacy. If you went down -
town and said: 'Thou great and
majestic merchant, show me a pair
of divinely colored hose,' they would
put you out of the store. [Laughter.]
Talk to God as you talk to your
wife and children. Be a child and
natural man. I am Sam Jones.
There is a Samuel Jones, D. D. One
is natural and the other is artificial.
What ~are you going to do with that
artificial Jones ? Why, go and bury
the D. D. He's dead. [Laughter.]
If we will be ouselves we'll be a
grand variety. God never made
two men alike but one was of no
account.'"-Baltimore American.
3J1takes of Life.
Somebody has condensed the mis-.
takes of life, and arrived at the con
clusion that there are fourteen of
them. Most people would say, if
they told the truth, that there was no
limits to the mistakes of life; that
they were like the drops in the ocean
or the sands of the shore in number,
but it is well to be accurate. Here,
then, are fourteen great mistakes:
"It is a great mistake to set up our
own standard of right and wrong,
and judge people accordingly; to
measure the enjoyment of others by
our own; to expect uniformity of
opinion in this world; to look for
judgment and experience in youth;
to endeavor to mould all dispositions
alike; to yield to immaterial trifles; to
look for p)erfection in our own ac
tions; to worry ourselves and others
with what cannot be remedied; not to
alleviate all that needs alleviation as
far as lies in our power; not to make
allowances for the infirmities of
others; to consider everything im
possible that we cannot perform; to
believe only what our finite minds
can grasp; to expect to be able to
understand everything. -Scientiftc
D)on't swap with your relashuns
unless ye ken afford to give them the
end of the trade.
lDon't mnortifi the ilesh too much,
'twant the sores on Lazarus that sent
him to henan.
