ago the fol lowing sermon was heard in a remote neighborhood In Georgia by a woma teacher and by her put into writing It has frequently been in print yet we believe it will be new to many of our preacher was apparently about fifty years of age large muscular and well proportioned On entering th pulpit he took off his coat and hung t on a nail behind him then opened hi collar and wristbands and wiped th perspiration from his face neck ana hands He was clad in striped cotton homespun and his shirt was of th same material He had traveled sev eral miles that morning and seemed almost overcome by the heat But th brethren sang a couple of hymns whit he was fanning and cooling off and when he rose he looked comfortable and goodnatured He had preached there once or twice hre was a stranger Hence he thought it necessary to announce himself which he did as Old ClubAx Davis from Scriren County a half Hard and hart Sort Shell Baptist I have given myself that name said be because I believe the Lora elected me from eternity to go ahead in tbe backwoods and grub out a path and blaze the way for other men t follow After the thickest of it is cu away a good worm Methodist brother will uuuie along and take my trail and make things a little smoother and u good del noisier After all the un derbrubU is cleaned out and the owl and wolves are skeered back and rat tlesnakes is killed oil a Presbyterian brother in black broadcloth d white cravat wify come along and cry fords cency and order And theyll both do good in their sphere I dont despire a larnt man even when he dont dress and think as J do You couldnt pay me enough towearbroadcloth summer nor winter and you couldnt pay Presbyterian brother enough to go without It in clog days luGodbrethren but every man has his own sphere When God has a place to till he makes a man and puts him in it When he wanted General Jackson he made him set him to fighttn Injuns and the English When he wanted Geo Whitefield he made him for to blow the gospel trumpet as no other man ever blowed it and when he wanted Old ClubAx Davis he made him and set him to grubbing in the backwoods But my shell isnt so hard but I can see good pints In everybody and as for the Presb terians they are long way ahead of us Baptists and Methodists in some things They raise their child ren better than any people on the face of the earth Only a few days ago a Methodist classleader said to me Brother ClubAx I was born Methodist I was raiseed a Methodist ana by the grace of God I hope to dl eter a Methodist but thank God Ive got a Presbyterian wife to raise my chit dren And I believe my brethren IfI the Lord should open the way for m to marry again Id try my best to find Presbyterian woman and run my chances of breakin her in to the saying doctrines of feet washiu and im mersion afterwards II Just at this point he was interrupted by two spotted hounds that had been continually running up and down the pulpit stairs One of them jumped upon the seat and began to gnaw his cot tall in which was something he had brought along for luncheon He turned slowly round and took the dog by the ears and tau and threw him out of the window behind hire as easily as It he had been a kitten The other animal took warning and got out as rapidly as possible though not without howling and yelling as if it had been hat kill He then turned to the audience and said smilingly St Paul exhorted the brethren to buware of dogs I wonder what he would do fibs waist n my place this morning v It appears like I am compassetiiaboutwlth dogs as David said he was He had scarcely commenced preajch ing again before there was a tertlKe squealing and kicking among the motes and horses that were tied loathe close bTHe put his head out of tbe wlndwand safdNo harm done withesa S4Uill some o stster can walk home this hot day Quiet being restored lie continued dr tryfrow say what I allowed to abqti the ids ii 1Lf i L 1 t r J fl by terians As I said before they raise their children a heap better than we do They behave better in church and BEnble and learn the Catechism better than ours do I declare my brethren their children are larnt that Westmin ister Catechism by the time they can begin to talk plain Ita1DtthreeweekssfnceIwasou pearetins had strayed oIIand I stopped in Musdeacoein the Presbyterian Church over thar Well as true as I stand here my litetIe gal astandin right before her with toes just even with the crack o hangineturneed like a chicken when it drinks and she was aputtin this question to her out o that Catechism What are the benefits which in this life do accompany or flow from justification adoption and san tifica tionNow the question itself was enough to break the child down But when she had to begin and say that question all over tor thats the way it was in the book and then hitch the answer to it and which all put together mad this The benefits which in this life justibcao aretassurance of Gods love peace of con science joy in the Holy Ghost increase of grace and perseverance therein tootI the endI thought the child was tbe alsmy life She tuk it right too without balkiu or missin the first word And she spoke so sweet and looked so like a little angel that before I knowd It the tears was arunnin down my cheeks as big as buckshot Ive seen the day when I could have mauled and spUta tho san rails quicker and easier than I could lanai that thing and sat didaNow my brethren that chi didnt understand or know the mean g of one word o1 that It put me n to all I kuowbdto take it iu myself But just let that Presbyterian your un grow up and every word of tha Catechism will come back to her and her character will stiffen up under her and shell have the backbone of th matter in her life Now I cant put thijgs into my children that way Nothin dont stay somehow Its like drlviu nails into a rotten log This last remark I never forgot For years afterward as I would stand at the blackboard trying to fix rules and principles the mind of a dull pupil this remark would come back to me with his peculiar pertinency- I tell you my brethren he con tinued if our children had a little Presbyterianachildren a little less it would be bet for both Then we dont pray in our families like they do I know their prayers are mighty long and they pray all over nighet way Now my father and mother was good Baptists and raised their chi dren to be honest and Industrious but never heard one of them pray In my life and I was most a grown man be fore I ever prayed a prayer myself and It was on this wise There was to be a big meetin1 over In Elbert County and Iknowed a pret ty gal over thar that I wanted to go and see So I borrowed a little Jerse- waggin which was a stylish thing them days and went over to her home and stayed all night and engaged her to ride to meetln with me the next day which was Sunday We went and bad a glorious time and I may as well say right here that she was afterwards my wlfobut cumin home I met with a powerful ac cident that I never got over to this day As I was acomln down a steep hill some part of the gearin gave way sadist me and the waggin on my crea tars heels and belo young and skeery and not much used to wheels she wriggled and kicked and tore from qrie side of the rpad to the other till I was pitched head foremost as much ten foot into a gully audits a rnlr acle of mercy that my neck was not broke on the spot Expcotlh1 tobe killed eyerrminit tl thought I bugbttb ask the L rdtor- mercnbtlt11S I had never prayed fa cny life I couldnt

you spose any Preshyterlan raised boy was ever 1put to such a strait as that for a pray er No He would have prayed for himself and gone off after the Jews and heathen whilst I wasabuntin1 up- and

Govern ments confidential agent inwhich he shows 500000 was set aside to bribe cougressmenand newspapers Abner McKinley is mentioned as- a man worth buying Last Thursday the President sent to Congress a message relat ing to the necessary provisions for carrying out the transfer of Amer ican rule in Cuba The specific conditions are named including a constitutional or statuatory clause providing that the United States shall have the right to in tervene to protect the islands in dependence or to enforce the obli gations of the treaty of Paris The message asks that provision be made for a Minister at 10000 a year Consulships are asked only for Havana Cienfuegos and San tiago de Cuba This is what Hon Henry Wat terson said at a banquet at Wash ington the other night Friends brothers Democrats let

and fight the hosts of imperialism protection and misrule It is our honest opinion that Mr atterson is cor rect in theory as regards the near future but had such men as Mr Watterson stayed in the

is at all times opposed to the great princi resWInour defeats in the plain light of countrys departure from the doctrines that have made it free great and powerful and the furth er fact that the Democratic party is the only power than can bring needed reform we believe that Mr Wattersons pleas ehould be heed ed that all Democrats should be willing to make a reasonable sacrifice in order to

the statement that C H Ryan of Russellville Deputy Internal Rev enue Collector of the Second dis trict has been notified to turnover his office to another man April 1 Ryan was appointed as a Brown Democrat It is stated thoIciao will be given the place This action was taken after a conference of the oldline Repub licans Who decided that all Brown Democrats now holding appoint ive places should go and the offices be filled with Republicans- The above shows that the small favers shown the Brown Demo crats by Republicans were only skin deep Since the Democratic party has shown its power in this State and since there is no jpecial fight to be made the Republicans are retiring the Brown Democrats and giving their places to Repub licans We have never had any confidence in this love lasting un less a lull and frank espousal of Republicanism should be made by the Democrats who left our party temporarily and stood with Re publicans only in one battle The time is up the jig is on and Re

might be of interest to the News readers I shall attempt to write a brief letter Every thing is moving along in the natural order of things save an unexpected outbreak of small pox in a mild form which hast created quite a sensation- Notwithstanding the shortage in all crops last year prosperity abounds in all sorts of business from the peanut stand to the cotton mill Farm hands are very scarce unskilled labor is worth one dol lar per day skilled labor ranging from two to five dollars per day Owing to the high price of seed and fear of the return of the green bug which totally destroyed thg grain crop last year the average of wheat and oats is very small Corn is coming up nicelyand the farmers are making prepara tions for planting cotton Devorsified farming has become more general than in former days The growing of potatoes onions melons berries etc has proven more remunerative than tho pro duction of so much corn and cot tonThe price of feed at present is the greatest problem that con fronts us Corn is worth one dol lar per bushel hay seventy cents per bale oats seventyfive cents per bushel bran one dollar and fifty cepts per bushel By way of admonition I might suggest that all who contemplate coming to Texas in the near fu ture would better not delay as this country is becoming densely populated and the opportunities for scuring a home for ihe poor man are growing fewer each year Land has advanced at least 50 per cent within the last two years RespectfullyW KEETON Held Without Hail Munfordsville Ky March 21At- r the close of the examining trial of Henry
