Dr. Smith's address was a gem.

The Journal is uble to give it iu
full. Dr. Smith said:
"It is w ith peculiar pleasure, my
voting brother, that I have accept
cd vour invitation to be with yon
this evening. There are very spe
cial reasons that make it n peculiar
pleasure. I could not avoid the
thought, lis I w as coining this nun n
ing, of the time about eight years
ago in the month of August, when
I was in the city of Xew York, a
telegram came to mo ut II o'cloc k
at night uiging me to come as l isl
as I could lo the city of Columbia
in order tube in time to conduct
your funeral. I think this is sonic
thing very peculiar and I believe it
to be providential. It must have
lieeu, util I hav e no doubt but that
it was a divine net of providence
that yon have liecn spared for this
congregation.
"It is a very peculiar pleasure
for me to see you here alter so long
it period of prep. nation, loi- you
have had what 1 would call extra
ordinary preparation forlhiswoik,
and I leel that there is something
more of au omen in connect ion w ith
your installation than falls to the
lot of most ministers. Certainly,
I have no doubt but that the most
of your friends w ill Is- evpi-cting a
great deal of you in this, your lirst
pastorate after such long ami care
fill preparation.
"Dr. llowerton has spoken to
you along the line that is most ma
ierial, and he has anticipated w hat
I would be expected to say to you,
but there arc some homely truths
that nre very needful, ami le ssons
that I hope you will not learn, at
least from experience. I will men
tion some ol those things, begin
uiug w ith the least important.
"1 noticed this morning ou the
train, right opposite inn, a gentle
man whose countenance impressed
me very much, and I was struck
ith how vacant it was; I roulii uot

is n lesson. It ts a great disail vant
age for n man to have his mouth

his moil Ih open is almost sure to
get his foot iuto it. I think it was
Mr. Spurgeon who said, 'It is a
very good thing to have a deaf ear
and a blind eye.'
"Among the little things that
are important, I would emphasize
punctuality. Always be punctual
to your appointments. Always he
on the hour. Be punctual with

much attached that it was a great
struggle to decide w hether to com

by doing both. I want to say to
