For years I have been impressed that aM anual of Manners for ministers and members would be serviceable to both. Books on pastoral theology ignore, as beneath their dignity, the social peccadilloes and pulpit mannerisms of preachers. They go uncorrected and many find out, late in life, how they have been handicapped bfaults. Friends, from fear of giving offense, have failed to admonish, and because of compensatory gifts, they have been tolerated and carried who might, divested of these clogs, have forged to the front. Others have achieved mediocre success uho could, with foibles overcome, have mounted to the top, and have halted on lower levels. Many conscious of talent and studious, have felt unappreciated, the result of some trifling fault, and suffered positive discomfort. A preacher must be a gentleman. In the degree he falls below that does he stop short of meeting popular demand and is unsuccessful. Society will not tolerate, in a minister, cant, slang, pet phrases, and vulgar habits. He must be a man of clean hands, literally, as well as of a pure heart. Unspotted linen and a clean heart complement each other. Speech must be seasoned with salt. Egotism has slaughtered thousands, asS ampson the Philistines-with the jawbone of an ass. (Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)
