heaven than the hut in the valley Faith walks In the light while Doubt stumbles and falls in the dark The shores of Tomorrow are strewn with the wrecks of indolent endeavor Comparatively few souls have been saved by sermonettes smothered in concertsIf are really a Christian your neighbor will know it without you telling him There is always hope for the man who realizes the limitations of his own knowledgeA many people expect to col lect usury when they lend to the Lord by giving to the poor Some people have a habit of leaning so heavily on God that their feet dont touch the ground The man who is too good to take part in politics Is never too good to profit by a political reform There Is something wrong about the religion that leads smother or father to neglect home and children The

WEAR CORSETS The Tailor and Cutter of London has made a discover- yIt is reported it says that the French dandies are applping to corset makers to provide them with belts to improve the shape of the waist and hips They have apparently caught onto the latest idea in London fashion and are having their garments made to fit very closely at the waist and to Be well padded on the hips They have their trousers made very long so that they may wear them turded up Their collars are worn so high at the back that they make their wearers stoop and and crown all with a btll shaped hat There are many Londoners who don the same styles We notice that a leading corsetmaker in Charming Cross road is making a speciality of gentlemans corsets So that even in their follies London and Paris are not far apart A LITERARY STORY It is doubtful if Mark Twain has any difficulty nowadays in disposing of his stories says the New York Times but it is evident from arecent remark that be has not grown out of sympa thy with his struggling and less famous fellows in the literary field Tbe lady who tells the incident was talking with him on the disillusionments of authorshipAnd understand she said that some of your authors compose on the typewriter Such is the inartistic truth Mark unromantic to associate genius and the typewriter the lady exclaim ed But on the other hand Isuppose that writer cramp is thus avoided she added practically Partially madam replied Mark only partially Why not altogether she demand ed puzzled at his smile It may be avoided in the wrist and fingers Mark explained feelingly but we are all subject to It in the stomach HENRY CLAY A wellknown traveler of Chicago tells an interesting story in the Cour ierJournal about Henry Clay the great Kentucky statesman then a well known lawyer CIA man was once being tried for murder and his case looked hopeless indeed He had without any seeming provocation murdered a neighbor in cold blood Not a lawyer in the coun ty would take the case It looked bad enough to ruin the reputation of any barister The man as a last extremity appealed to Clay to take the case for him Every one thought that Clay would certainly refuse But whenthe celebrated lawyer looked into the matter his lighting blood was roused and to the great surprise of all he accepted Then came a trial the like of which was never seen Clay slowly curled on tbe case and it looked more and more hopeless The only ground of defense the prisoner had was that the murdered man had looked at him with such a fierce murderons look that out of self defense he had struck first A ripple passed through the jury at this came for Clay to make his defense It wassettledin the minds or the spectators that the man was guilty of murder in the first degree Clay proceeded laid all the proofs before them in a masterly way then just as he wasabout to conclude he played his last master card Gentlemen of the jury he said assuming the fiercest blackest look and carrying the most undying hatred in it that I had ever seen gentlemen if a man should look at you like this what would youdoJI This was all be said but that was enough The jury was startled and some even quailed In their seats The judge moved uneasily on his bench After fifteen minutes the jury filed slowly back with a Not guilty your honor The victory was complete When Clay was congratulated on his easy victory he lilt was not so easy as you think I spent days and days in my room be fore the mirror practicing thatlook It took sore hard work to give that look than to investigate the most obtuse case The secretary of the navy let the contract for the oonstruotion bf the new battleship Louisiana to built Oj900 OoO TIlE PARENT OF WHEAT The most remarkable fact concern ing the queer plant the goatseyc Is that it has been proved byexperiment to be the parent of cultivated wheat This fact was accidentally discovered by a French agriculturalist He wished to determine what effect cultivation would have upon the goatseye and planted remote from any fields of grass that might mingle with It a few ofthe seeds The first crop showed much difference from the original beI- ng two or three times taller and more grains to the stalk At the end of seven years experimenting the yield was over 300 grains for each one planted and the transformation was com plete every plant was a true represen tative of cultivated wheat Later he sowed them In open fields and in no instance have they returned to the form ot the original goatseye grass The same experiments have since been tried by the English Agricul tural society with the same results Tbe nearest form to true wheat now found wild is the creeping couch grass a perennial closely agreeing in all essential particulars of structure with our less cultivated annual wheat TEACHERS ASSOCIATION The following is the program of the Teachers Association to be held at Knllley Saturday Oct 25 Exercises Eld Leslie Address S L Coffey Response Dr J C Gose

Moros have had some sense shot into them by the troops under Captain Pershing The decisive success of the expedition against those sultans who undertook to make war upon the Americans will doubtless have the most salutary ef fectThe fact that the several hundred thousand fighting Mohammedans of the great island of Mindanao are vided into a number of tribes or clans each with the sultan or datto at its head and that there is no bond of un ion between these separate clans ex cept that of religion is largely respon sible for this governments escape from a very nasty complication If these Mohammedans all fighting men were to combine against us as they did against the Spaniards there would be little hope of American occupation of the Island without great loss of life As it is however the more power ful of the rulers have refused to join those of their fellow religionists who insist upon fightlngy Captain Pershing who was given command of theEXpe dition into the lake country because of his knowledgo of the Moro people seems to be very successful In holding the stronger dattos In their friendly atdtude Captain Pershing has been in command of Mindanao since the first American expedition set foot up on the island He is an officer of brains and capacity And has made a study of the Moro people Undoubted ly a very great deal of the credit for the present success

enterprise The great possibl titles of a water power to be created by tunneling at the bend of the river was Prof Azblils first motive In promoting the road Bit he said nothing of this tilt he could hay the survey made to ascertain the amount of fall In the river He ha ascertained it to be forty two feet quite sufficient for all practical purpo sea He has secured land with right and easements with a view to the et tab ishmentof a great water power the central station on the road above the end of the Park The Park will lie between this Power Plant and the cel ebrated GiffinS rings This has been surveyed and is found to contain about fifty acres An additional concession to the road has been made by Mrs Jennette Atkinson ota piece of woodland on a high bluff overlooking the Green River and Robinson creek bottoms near a favor- Ite fishing place Mr Azbill has ulterior purposes concerning this spot which may yet delight the anglers and bring revenue to the railway Besides In this same locality as he informs us there is plenty of reck like that In the Columbia court house which will not only meet the needs of the road where bridges will be required but maybe put on the market with great profit These things ought to encourage faith in the enterprise It was announced in last weeks issue that the additional subscriptions to the school to be located here would be published each week but not hav- Ing a report from several solicitors we are unable to do so One thing cer tain after the canvass has ended every contributor will be published whether the proposition loses or wins The committee is doing faithful work and be It known to the friends of tbls en terprise that we have no time to lose and that we must yet secure about 2000 in this county The importance and worth of such an Institution is far reaching to this county and this section of the State and If thepaople fail to grasp it a tremendous error like wise costly will result Make up your mind to give and give liberally and help secure the school Mr John L Wheat of Louisville writing to a representative of this paper says Since Conference on our way home and until now I have heard many expressionsfrom those In attendance and all agree In their praise of the cordial and liberal hospitality of the people of your good town As for ayself I must repeat what I have said so many times I never met with people more to my mind nor with a ecepcion and hospitality more grati ying I enclose 25 cents for which end me the News for the few weeks It pays that I may be more fully formed as to the progress of the new Columbia Training School in the success of which I feel a deep and abiding nterest iThe proposition to locate the School n Columbia has not yet been secured on the part of the Columbia District The educational Board requires 8000 from the District and conservative estimates show that the people of this ounty will have to put up 7000 of this und The committee has already cured about 5000 or a little over butt has also exhausted Its prospects for the largest subscriptions Beyond a loubt several good subscriptions will be received from several parties in this town but after that we are forced to expect the rest from the people in the county Eld W X Azbill was out all last week in the interest of the electric line between Columbia and Campbells vllle He states that the route is very practical and at no place will the grade be more than eighty feet to the mile Mr Azbill is meeting with encourage ment from many different sources aod the people along the line are very much enthused The people of lumbia have perfect confidence in Mr Azbills ability and influence to carry the project toa successful termination Mr William Butler who lives on the Campbellsvllle pike two miles from Columbia was very happily surprised last Friday It was his 66th birthday and while he was out on the farm hrs wife and daughters prepared a birth daydinner and invited in the neigh bore About sixty persons came in and Mrs LO Hurt of this place states that a more magnificent dinner could not have been prepared Eld WK Azbill delivered tiwoyery Interesting sermons at the Presbyter- Ian church last Sunday forenoon and evening Large congregations were out showing that the speaker is high ly appreciated as a minister in this community He Is forcible and logical Iud makes his sermons so plain that the young as well as the old can readily understand them The Methodist people of Greensburg heartily commend their ffirmer pastor Rev E M Metcalfe to the citizens of Columbia He was the pastor at Greensburg four years and was very much liked by the churchgoingpeople Himself and family will arrive in Co lumbia Ina few days and on the first Sunday in November he will occupy the pulpit at the Methodist church Mr Chas E Finks brother of Mrs H O Wolford this city was shot and severely wounded by an enemy at Hawkins Texas on the 3rd of this Eaoatb He was shot twice once in the Lisa tied onoein the breast the ban Pr Ungthe lung The latest in format states that Mr Fulks will likely recover Later he died last Saturday t PROPOSED Y M C A Mr Azbill has several times lately proposed some sort of association of Christian young men in our commuc ty to provide innocent and intellectual entertainment and amusement for the youth of Columbia The necessity for this Is already great If the schools the M E Church succeeds the need will be greater as we shall have alar ger number of young men In Columbia Sunday night at the close of hIs sermon Mr Azbill requested a number or young men to act as a provisional committee to gle effect to tbe suggestion One or two names which appear below were inadvertently omitted but tha following is the list of those who art requested to move In the matter Tyler Baker William Coffey James Garnett Jr Ben Ed Rowe Ed At kins Mont Cravens C S Harris Mr Coffey was requested to call this committee together It Is hoped that this move will result in a

than the man behind the counter It is just as honorable just as dignified to plow and to mow as It is to tie up sugar or measure kerosene to hand down a spool of thread or put out a package of
