Some church members remind me
of a dog tied under a wagon; they
seem to think all they have to do
is to pull back and growl.—Sam
UA preacher can travel a great
deal further and endure a great deal
more hardship on a clean conscience
than he can on a full stomach."—
The city pastors of the different
churches in Memphis have signed
and published a protest against an
effort which is being made to revive
the Mardi Gras in that city. The
protest is timely and ought to defeat
That sordid worldly man says:
"I am not afraid to die." "1 am
not afraid of God," says the skep-
tic. No, if you were you would be
wiser and better than you are. The
fear of the Lord is the beginning of
wisdom, and you have not begun to
be wise yet.—Arkansas Methodist.
The Apostle says, "Whosoever
therefore is the friend of the world
is the enemy of God." If the thea-
ter and the modern dance is not of
the world then tell us where is the
world to be found ? Where is this
enemy to God i.—Ark. Methodist
The Tele-phone comes to us this
week with the name of W. A
Thompson as editor and publisher.
Mr. Thompson has for some time
been employed as special corres-
pondent for the Missouri Republi-
can and other leading dailies. lie
is a good writer and a clever gentle-
man, and no doubt will make the
7cicphonc a very readable paper.
We extend the hand of welcome to
you, Bro. Thompson.
Our old Tennessee friend, Rev.
W. T. Rolling, D. D., who is now
stationed at Fayette, Mo., writing
to the St. Louis Advocate, says:
I have been confined to the house
for three weeks past, not being able
to be in my pulpit more than once
in the past four weeks. What was
the matter? Whooping cough!
Think of it at the mature age of 41
vears I am a more perfect
gentleman now, having quit tobacco
in all its forms, and feel much bet-
ter physically. I found it a hard
fight after using it thirty years stead-
Rather an old boy to have the
whooping cough, but if it required
such an affliction to arouse the Doc-
tor's conscience on the tobacco
question, we say blessings on the
cough. Would that more of the
preachers would have it.
houses were of white mud, and
looked just like all the pictures you
see of them, square adobe houses
with a little brush porch over the
front door. At Colton oranges be-
gan to be five for a nickel, and here
at Los Angelos we buy oranges by
the bushel and apples by the pound.
It is just like summer here now,
roses artd all kinds of flowers in
bloom in the yard and grass and
trees as green as can be. There is
an orange orchard just opposite our
house, and oranges ripe all over it.
I have not done much but look
around. First the mountains are
enough to look at. 1 have not at-
tempted the climbing yet, but take
the word of the rest that at least a
dozen small towns, and the ocean
itself is visible from our nearest
peak, and they very effectually shut
off all rough winds from this pleas-
ant valley. I have not heard a sin-
gle whistle around the house. The
air has been as soft through the day
as an Iowa June. Our car came
and as soon as we can get it we
will get everything in its place. The
town is full of strangers, and we
hear many objections raised, but in
my opinion the beauty of a fine day
in California at Passadena cannot
Resignation of Mr. L. D. Palmer.
Our Los Angelos friends send us
reports of their surroundings and
first impressions in that country.
We make some extracts for our
readers: "We landed in quite a
pleasant state of mind, having made
the trip more comfortable than we
could imagine it could be macle with
so many little children. Our por-
ter was obliging, our meals served
regularly, and all, with one excep-
tion, ready for them at every ser-
vice. We found a nice clean house
awaiting us. It was not long before
we had a gasoline stove, some steak,
potatoes and coffee, and a dinner in
the new country. At Fort Worth
we heard that the engine house at
Denison had burned and several
freight cars, too, and as our freight
car was there that night, we were
afraid it had burned too, and there
was 110 way to find out. At all the
little Mexican towns most of the
At a meeting of the Hook Com-
mittee held 011 Wednesday, January
25, 1888, Mr. L. D. Palmer, who
has held the position of business
manager of the publishing house of
the M. E, Church, South, since
1878, tendered his resignation,
which was accepted.
The value of the services rendered
to the church by Mr. Palmer during
these years is well known to our
people. He possessed special qual-
ifications for the functions of his
office in the critical period following
the General Conference at Atlanta.
He wrought with an ability and
fidelity the fruits of which a.e visi-
ble in the present prosperity of our
publishing house. In the disen-
tanglement of the complications that
existed his patient and skillful hand
was employed with the most satis-
factory results. He was the right
hand of Dr. McFerrin, and the ever-
ready and ever-efficient servant of
the book committee and the church.
He leaves his post now while the
ship is in smooth water, and will
carry with him the gratitude and
good wishes of all our people.
Mr. Palmer will enter at once
upon the duties of superintendent of
the West Nashville Land Improve-
ment Company. The stockholders
of this enterprise and the general
public may be congratulated on
their good fortune in securing the
services of a business man so well
known and so fully qualified.
We have had a fine revival in
our church here, large number of
conversions and thirteen additions
to the church.
The pastor of the Methodist
church desires to thank the breth-
ren who rendered such valuable
service during the revival.
