congratulate Bro. Herndon on his

ought to know* that when it is try

our Savior it is wasting its paper
and ink. The truth is we are
caring but little about the matter,
for we simply accept the fact of his
coming, and as to the t 'me, we are
not in -the least concerned. Jesus

oF printing a letter from Bro. R.
Graham, President of the college of
the Bible, Lexington, Ky. As we
had the privilege of sitting at the
feet of this great teacher for a
number of years in order to study
the Scriptures, we know what it is
to have such an encouraging letter
from him. In fact it should be a
source of great encouragement and
an incentive to greater effort on
the part of all of us to know that
such men are so interested in our
good work on this coast. We know
many of his friends here will be
pleased to hear from him. Let us
all give heed to what he says in
behalf of our common cause.

Ky. a short time since celebrated
the Lord’s supper with a jug of Old
Bourbon whisky instead of wine
The deacon made the mistake. We
suppose he was much more accus
tomed to handling the Old Bourbon
than the wine, hence the mistake.
The most shameful feature of the
whole thing was that after the mis
take was discovered the church
went right on with its celebration
to its close. But as many of these
members had doubtless engaged all

was but consistent that they should
consummate their sinful folly by
offering it pn the Lord’s -table. _
