The court kicked by a Dun Heifer the Little meet Ino House Down in the country a Faith Ful servant. An old school divine a our second Day out from the City was sunday. As i stated in my letter last week i left the colonel at 3 of clock Iii the morning pics Tjung with websters unabridged dictionary and banding words with a pet Crow that roasted near his bed room window. As we were called to breakfast at of clock it is not Likely that our Warrior Friend slept much during the night. To what extent he exchanged compliments with the Crow will never be known Only to the guardian and keeper of the stars and the recording Angel. The crowds knowledge of the English language was limited and entered in one expression a ooh main the Doc or who occupied a room with the colonel testified that he heard that War cry Many times during the night and for that reason i Felt that it was Safe to assume that the Crow was not without provocation. I looked in upon the colonel As he was completing his toilet and was informed by him that there was i title difference Between the people of town and country. It took the people in town half the night to get ready for bed and the country people the other half to get ready for the events of the coming Day. Switzer Brothers j nature does not Wake up with a Start the first mornings in Early Spring. It takes some time to Limber up rigid eyelid. That was the Way i was impressed at least on this particular morning As i strolled away from the House. A lot of hogs in a neighbouring feed Yard were piled up like a log Heap and steaming like a tar Kiln. Moans and sobs welled up from the living mass while it shivered and Shook like it was in labor. Impatient feet were beating a Tatoo in the barn lowing Kine were in the Sheds while the plaints of sheep come from the Distant fold. A Cloud of Mist swept the Meadows like a Silver tidal wave. Suddenly the soft Sweet notes of a conch Shell were bounded in the East. The proud old Chanticleer in the Apple tree uncovered his head and listened. Again the conch Shell sounded and stretching his cramped legs sir rooster crowed lustily. An Hundred defiant Cocks answered and As the turmoil deepened the turkeys on the Gar Den Fence woke up. One by one they dropped Down to the ground and were soon followed by the old lord and harem from the tree. Long lines of cackling geese and quacking ducks filed out from under the barn and gathering around the bulging Corn crib started a chorus that was soon swelled by the voices of every Bird and beast on the farm. The Sun peeped through the Trees and the Dawn passed out to the West to awaken the sleepers in other Fields far far away. A nah me a said the judge. A i had forgotten All about this sort of thing. The voices that i have heard this morning come to me like messengers from my boyhood Days. Why should i care to chasten my children for some times crying when they first get up in the morning even the Birds have some complaints to make before they open up the Matin a and the crows a said the colonel who had by the s time joined us a a Why nature confound her pictures ought to be plagued by a season of perennial woe for having such spawn accounted among her much towards eradicating the worldliness that has crowded out the Christian spirit that distinguished them when they held Pace in the amen Corner of the Little country Church. While we sit and studied the Interior of Tho Chapel a thin shaky Tenor voice took tip that Good old hymn Quot How tedious and tasteless the hours when Jesus i longer i see Sweet prospects Sweet Birds and Sweet Flowers have All lost their sweetness to six beats later the treble wheeled into line while the Bis jogged along like Wagon train in the rear of a marching army. That was due largely to the fact la it the pilgrims from the City attempted to help out the song service but they had been paying some one else to do their singing for them so Mony years that they did not realize what out of tune old hamsters they really were. An aged sister next led in prayer. The invitation wan general for All to Kneel Down. Then the pilgrims went Down on their Knees something they had not been in the habit of doing though regular attendants at Church Tor years. They found the Birne old dust on the floor that was there when they were boys but even the colonel did not growl because he had to dust off the Knees of his Best sunday pants a dozen limes that morning. In fact it seem to do the old Man Good and As he want a up to Tho work he even volunteered a few gospel songs himself. Fortunately Squire Johnson was leading the meeting and our was not asked to Pray. Perhaps Johnson was thinking of another occasion when the following quotation would have come in As an excellent after piece Quot we have left undone those things which we ought to have done and we have done those things which we ought not to have the prayer meeting was still in Progress when the minister appeared upon the scene he had driven ten Miles Over a miserable Road and in the face of a biting North wind to be present with the people. To looked old Ani broken in health and As he stood in the pulpit facing Tho congregation his eyes were the Only things about him that did not look faded. He had been Riding a circuit for nearly forty years. He was la typical itinerant but a i never been called to a cd y station because he lacked style or possibly because he was not College bred. I have heard it stated that such objections have been raised against men since the Days when Christ enlisted fishermen and other common labourers to assist in spreading the doctrine of salvation. But no matter about the appearance of this particular preacher. He was Strong in the Faith and insisted upon a general cleaning up of the Garden of the soul. Florida.

Is description Ted to any a a j. W. Melchior Atoo Ciau. C. H. Melchior a to Cipal. It was 7 of clock a. we were to Start for Church at nine. Early As it was some startling event had already come to Pasa the judge tendered his services to a milk Mald and had been kicked out of the shed by a Dun Heifer. My country men what an hour was that the maid snickered the judge glowered on the Heifer but As he was a Wise Man he Beld his peace. Of course the offender would not be sent to ail for contempt and what else could the court do but take the punishment with out protest the idea of the common pleas court being bundled out of a cow shed so unceremoniously nearly Over come the doctor and he had to take a dose of his own pills before he was finally restored to a Normal condition. Doctors As a Rule would much prefer being kicked by a Lusty Colt to prescribing for themselves but this doctor was an exception. Tho colonel had accompanied one of the boys to the sheep fold with a Load of feed. He made the fatal mistake of attempting to display his skill As an of Driver. When he returned one leg of his Pante loons was held in place by wooden pegs. He looked dangerous and would Only explain that the cattle were inclined to be cultish and had scattered pieces of the Wagon Over a five acre lot the old hero was sent to Iris room until All damages had been repaired and then the Johnson household took up the line of March for it. Pisgah. My Pisgah was not Zulke hundreds of other churches in the country. It had its amen Corner its pulpit its yellow window shades its Leo Urner a beaches and straight High backed seats that would have rattled Good old St. Anthony had they been numbered among his tempers. On Winter nights when gales came baying Over the Fields like angry hounds lights flashed from the windows of this Chapel and the roaring stoves entering their forces in a single Chimney sent up a pillar of fire marking the location of the Tabernacle and proclaiming to the country Side that the altar was open to mourners and a big meeting in full blast but still some of the Young people who worshipped Here in Days gone by have reached the Halls of Congress some Are divines some doctors some lawyers some educators and Many others have risen to High places in the business world. Many of them have not visited the old place since they Laid their parents or some Oiher Kindred to rest in the neighbouring grave Yard years ago and they do not know that tangled thickets Are Drifting Down Over Tho Graves of those who were once so dear to them. I speak of this so that of this letter is read by persons in City town or country who have forgotten or neglected the burial grounds of their friends that they May know that time does not Deal kindly with such places and that a pilgrimage Back to the old Chapel will do there were vineyards raised up in the name of the lord that were not of the lord and As the foxes and fire brands were ready the Day of destruction should not be delayed. He declared that poverty and crime should not be permitted to Breed under the very Walls of the Church and insisted that the existence of those Breeding grounds was due alone to the inaction of those who had solemnly promised to assist in Clearing them up. The Story of the hangar who rested in Abraham s bosom would be cold Comfort to a Man with a family of fam Ishing children especially or it were told in a Chapal where the splendid furniture dazzling unaccustomed eyes would of turned into Cash have kept the poor of a single county in bread and meat for month or More. Religion will not rest Well on an empty stomach. Christ understood that when i fed the multitude on the loaves and fishes. There is no Neutral grounds for Christiana those who Are not for me Are against me. God has no use for a Man that gives to foreign missions and plays shylock with his tenant god has no use for a Man who cries Temperance in Public and wrestles with a Jug in his closet just As surely As a Goslin will get the Strad. Dies by wading in the Dew will professors of religion be permanently injured if they do not get Down from the Fence. Again the profits of a business that owes its existence to an Alliance with crime May satisfy the pleadings of vanity May give All the things of the world one craves but the acceptance of such profits by professed christians As the Purchase Price of their silence is a terrible thing to contemplate. It was a heroic Sermon but As this letter is already much longer than i expected it to be. I must forgo further mention of it at this time. Buff Coth it to say that it was the subject of much talk As we walked across the Fields. The judge and colonel were especially Well pleased and were still discussing it when we came to the Lane leading to the Johnson residence.
