child over an accident for which he may be lamed The older person may be caL down by a broken dish or a lost purse but he shortly realizes the mls fortude as a partial one Other bless Ings remain In life although this one Is lost Not so fur the child The heavens turn black the green fields are a mere prison and the best loved version becomes a mockery Well do we remember that day In the old sugar orchard when we were driving the yoke of steers that hauled the sap to the sugarshed where It was to be converted Into that delis sous statemaple syrupwhen the steers became frightened at a playful groundhog near ny and ran away open tuning the barrel of sap breaking the sled and tearing up things generally The heavens Indeed turned black when we thought of our responsibility and the fear of paternal wrath on ac count of so much sap being wasted The haunting memory of that one ae cldent was enough to deprive us of all the jnysot sugarl off for a whole season Only yesterday a littlegirl tame to our office for fiva cents worth of pa per Sbeoffered as pay a dime and with a nickel In change departed Soon she came rushing In the big tears rolllul down her cheeks as she told us she had

smiled lustead of tears A recent English writer descrIbes his encounter with a little lad who had been sent wIth slxpecce to pay a debt and had lost the money His head was hidden In hlsarws against a tree trunk and he was crying bitterly lie must have been there a long time for he was almost exhausted although he still had strength to suffer such misery as can hardly be described His parents we r e evidently very poor but accustomed to act justly and the little fellow was overwhelmed not u much with fear of telling them his fault as with despair at the actual In jury he had done them It was pitiful tJ see the sense of repousibility domi nating the nature at so early an age the frequent Inheritance of honest poverty To be able to heal so cruel a wound by a single sixpence was noth- Ing

bends low at thegraye of Lorene 1 J Of Lorene with the lovely and lightgiv ing hair Who is dreaming of God neath the green grassesthere How little they know that this daisy streWn sod Is a grave twixt the heart of a woman and God There are millions of graves in this bright world below And Godin white wintersHe hides them with snow And over when spring makes her roseate bowers He shelters those graves with the splendor of flowers But what do the snow and the red roses mean To the woman who weeps oer the grave of Lorene Oh Lorene she was fairer than all I can say And I am but Winter where she made the May But knowing herloving herever I seem To see the gold hair where my life loved to dream But over it aUwhere we sowwhere- we glean Stands a woman that weeps oer the grave of Lorene o masters I know ere lifes beauty be fle- dTheres many a woman shall weep oer her dead And many a snow where lifes winters fall drear Hide the violeteyes and the starlitten hair Yet go with this womanwho loveless shall lean Oer the grave that still keeps her twixt God and Lorene Atlanta Constitution TIlE COLOR LINE IN RELIGION The refusal of the gener conference ot the Methodist Eplsc pal church at Los Angeles Cal to have one of the eight new bishops elected by that body a negro after special agitation to that end and a plea for such recognition by the negro d legates present has pecul far sglnlficaDce In pointing a moral as certain federal appointments In the South The northern wing of the Methodist church be It remembered was the pioneer of abolition and contrIbuted its full share of the spIrItuality that Inspired the Harpers Ferry raid After the emancipation the colored man and brother who emigrated to the north waS pretty generally welcomed to communion and full fellowship In this denomination without dlscrIm nation as to race color or previous condItion of servItude He was per milted to worship In the mixed fashln so dear to his heart wIth none to molest or make him afraid For a generation the negro has been a factor In the membership of the northern Methodist church and It not therefore surprising that he has grown In grace and boldness to the point of asking race representation on the episcopal board The Los Angeles conference had bishoprics to burn so to speak and naturally the man and brother felt that the time was oppor tune to advance his claims Some 200 negro delegates representIng thous ands of negro mEmbers of the church modestly asked for one of the eight new bishops Did they get him Not much Here was one place where the conference felt constratued to draw the color line and it was drawn without reference to how the man and brother might feel about It There Is no room In the northn n Methodist church fur a bishop of color no matter what the claims of the race for such recognition or the attainments of one ot Its members for the office The moral Is simple enough The Caucasian will rule whether In church or state and there are deadlines or public opinion and ace prIde even In religious organizations beyond which the children ot Ham would better not prIncIple and spirit apply to the appointment of negroes to po lltlcal nice In ttte south the differ ence being that In this Instance our white brethren of the north are too quick to favor the foisting of a negro official up o n southern citizenship against the protests of our people They either have not the ability to put themselves In anothers place or are destitute ot the breadth of mind and heart that would scorn to impose an Indignity or the kind upon a people unlawfully to preventsuch humllition by the appointive power Perhaps the action of the Los An geles conference will have a whole some influence upon the color question as applied to politics as well

DANGEROUS MAN The Chicago Journal which belongs to the republican housenod of faith Is Inclined to shy at the Imperialistic and present presidential Incumbent and to exact some safe and sane pledges from him apropos before risking him with an administration of his own The Journal declares It wants no war lord In the White House and says The friends or the president should InsIst that he make public his attituds In world affairs Among the coca rva the members of his own party M well as among citizens who differ from him politically there Is a firm belief that his desires run naturally to

noninterference In foreign affairs There should be no departure from this pulley The U S should under no circumstances become Involved In foreign wars and the president and his friends should see to

President Roosevelts ficial conduct with respect to foreign relations and matters that show a tendency toward Imperialism and mill tarism which are synonymous by this time doubt his similitude to Germans war lord temperamentally and In the nature of his ambitions And these Intelligent observers are by no means restricted to the democratic partyPresident Roosevelt by reason of the fact that he

election to the high office he now holds through fortuity Let him once enter upon a term of his own In the white house and there Is every reason to fear from his official record and known nature that

UNTI 1 1904 Not for many years has much interest been manifested in this part of the State as wa shown in the trial of Albert Bur ton last week for the killing o Marvin Conover deputy jailer about two months ago Th crime for which Burton wa charged and the circumstances under which he committed it well as the good reputation o the young man who was killed spread like a great conflagration over this part of the State imme diately after it was done and it was common to hear that h should be hung Burton escaped from this county but within a short while was captured in Tenn essee under the tracing
