Blackfoot Idaho News (Newspaper) - June 1, 1889, Blackfoot, IdahoJedi fila n Bov Ritea Iciek. An infantile Prodigy whose sermons slum scriptural knowledge. Atlanta Constitution Jimmie Cook Hie boy preacher of Carroll county preached a Sermon at Rice s opera House in Newman last night to a Large audience. He was on a visit with Liis sister and a few citizens learning of ids presence sought him out and asked him to preach for them. After persuasion the Prodigy consented and the opera House was secured As a suitable place. By 8 o clock the building was packed with ladies and gentlemen of Ali Ages including preachers lawyers doctors and business men. The boy is about 12 years of age raised on a Small Furin in the Backwoods of Carroll county without any school education and consequently illiterate yet he took for his test the twee to Goth chapter of Matthew the parable of the ten virgins and proceeded in a modest Way to expound the meaning of the parable. On reaching the stage where a Small table had been placed in front of the footlights he Knelt at the table in silent meditation after which the audience Sang at his request. Some familiar song lie had on a jeans suit of clothes a checked shirt and rough Brog Uii shoes. 11 is face is Sallow and rather intelligent and when animated with the influence of his discourse lit up with a pair of Hazel Eves makes his features a picture which increases is Beauty the longer one gazes at it. Although unaccustomed to crowds and the scenery of the stage he manifested no uneasiness whatever and was wholly free from embarrassment. During his Sermon he made copious quotations from the new testament and applied them appropriately to his text. He seemed under a heavy mental Strain All the while and frequently changed his position on the stage at times leaning on the table resting his face on his hands. Then again he would walk rapidly across to the end of the platform holding to the drop curtain and talking rapidly. Finally he said a i am out of breath a and motioning to those nearest the footlights said a using something while 1 he then made a Short prayer appealing in a pathetic Way for those whose Sius had not been forgiven and spoke feelingly of his own conversion. At the close of his wonderful address or. C. D. Smith proposed a collection to be taken up Foi him. This morning lie was the talk of the town and several gentlemen speak of raising Money to give him a Good education. Or. Walker tendered him a suit of clothes which was accepted and lie has throw aside his suit of jeans. Or.

At the age of four years he said that his health was very bad and the doctors advised his parents to teach him to Chew tobacco which habit he has cultivated until his system seems thoroughly7 impregnated with the Weed. He says that in the fall of 1877 his Mother now dead taught him How to read the scriptures and that last Spring he was converted. While picking Cotton last fall he said something told him to go and preach the gospel and it so impressed him that he con id no longer resist the influence.
