the war for freedomliberty and independence against the Government of England 1776 to 1785 and many more through the war with that same enemy of American free dom 1812 to 1814 were yet alive and with the survivors of those years and of the bloody war marks were rejoicing in content ment peace and prosperity and when every home was a school houseteacher of patriotism and of prayer and children were happy in listening to the music of drum and fife Yankee Doo dIe and How Firm a Founda tion ye Saints of the Lord and while yet a little boy was thor oughly indoctinated in those great foundation virtues which adorned his entire manhood life until the death call at his home closed his long life and he was bidden to come up into the high er chamber and rest amongst the saints of God dressed in the whiterobeduniform of that de partment of the heavenly home Early in his life beginnings up on earth he listened to the truth announced by the Savior to Nic odemus and sought to be born again as was therein taughlgtfr that ruler and to KNOW of the new life was born again and rom then till his voice and life activities i were hushed at deaths door was a ready and willing witness unto his many thousand corn rades on the march forthe Lov er of his soul He was a lawyer and a pro found jurist and in his chosen avocation met and mingled with hundreds of lawyers judges jur ies clients and other citizens and I venture the statement and testimony which I am glad to bear that every lawyer and judge with whom he practiced or had any considerable association or business discussion or transaction learned and recollected that he was on the Lords side and so it was his life outgiving testi mony as the representative of the good people of his county and as Senator in the State Legisla ture that he loved the Bible and the church the Sabbath day and stood for Christ and his King dom I knew him at the bar and on thebench at his home and when he was away from home and at the Capital of his state in the midst of all the dashy show and glitter beauty and temptations of fashionable society and amusements and the excitements that swell up and command the human passions in success and in disap pointment and in every instance and upon all occasions he was a marked man of the highest Chris tian type In politics he was a Democrat firm and true but not imperious or intolerant was always ready to favor and help in every way to sucCessanyaqdal1measnr s 4othed m what seemed best for the country whether proposed by Democrats or any ofthe adverse parties of his day And so in religion and church

DemJCraticparty today He is in the glare of the limelight of publicity and can gather thou sands where other wouldbe leaders cannot gather scores The Savannah News complains that instead of retiring to obscurity after his two Presidential defeats he bobs up in unexpected places and on every possible occasion whereat the Macon News reports Mr Bryan is today the most popular living Democrat in all the nation A this gives the Atlanta opportunity to say M r Bryan retains his popularity not through the cheap methods of a poseur who understands the advertis ing tricks of the press agent but be cause more uearly than does any other living American citizen he embodies in his personality and expressed con victions the American ideal of honest fearless statesmanship It matters not how far the magnetic Nebraskian may fall short of this lofty ideal in his abilities and accomplishments he may have his failings and even his supe- rficialitieshe may not have risen tothe full height of his opportunityhe is nevertheless a relic of almost a lost type of the greatpublicist and common er so dear to the American heart and still dear to Americans who venerate the statesmanly days of the republic Mr Bryan is acknowledged to have few peers as a hustling orator and no man has a right to question the sincer ity of his impassioned speech Radical he may be but his is the radicalism of convictiondeep uncompromising con victionandnot the radicalism of the demagogue Any manly man what ever his opinions or prejudices cannot but respect the constancy to principle that Mr Bryan has ever evinced in defeat and the dignity with which he has borne himself Mr Bryan posses ses moral qualities that are all too rareFor the rest Mr Bryan stands for principles that millions of his fellow citizens cherish as their political tenets The fact that those Tie represents in the fierce forum of ideas are at present in the minority does not lessen the re spect due his leadership or the force of his individuality That minority may be a Gideons band small but strong with the potentialities of ultimate victory It may yet leaven the whol lume of the American body politic The Constitution sees no reason why any Democrat should dispraise or disparage Mr Bryan It may be easy to pick flaws in him for who is con cretely exempt from criticism But Mr Bryan in the abstract is monumental He fills a large niche in con temporary history And politically he is not dead yet7 Like Finding Money Finding health is like finding money so think those who are sick When you have a cough cold sore throat or

large enough o cover the lungs and apply to the chest as hot as the patient can bear in about ten minutes change the poul and in a few hours the patient will be out of danger This remedy is said to have been formulated many years ago by a New England physician diseasesIt seems to us that the remedy is worth trying in an emergency or until a physician arrives and we give it for what it is worth 1Grinding reed for Hogs There is such a variation in results of experiments conducted to ascertain whether it jis best to grind feed for hogs that the individual feeder is Jeft to be his own judge and to ascertain for himself whether it pays best to grind the feed or feed it whole My experience has been young animals will chew their feed better than old ones and that almost any hog will chew corn very well before it dries out While young hogs will chew dried corn reasonably well old ones are liable to pass half the grains unbroken in their voidings Last year I undertook to fatten a stag five years old and after the corn got dry he did not from appearance break half the grains This Fall I ani fatten ing a sow aboht the same age and the same is true of her lam feeding her ground feed now however and feel pretty sure that it pays me to go to the trouble of grinding it A few years ago I tried feeding buckwheat to young fattening hogs This was fed whole for a time but the hogs did not seem to break half the grains I have never ati9nrfromsay that the hogs win not chew wheat well Jf the grains are not broken is a clearcase that the animal will not get enrich benefit from the feed and when any considerable quantity of grains are avoided without chewing by the animl it would seem to be th- eras best to have the feed ground Of course it will be some trouble and to eiirthe aninutto

CharI telling how the hymn came to be inspir ed through a remark of Dr Caesar Malahan to the invalid composer when she had told him that she did not know how to find Christ Come to him just as you are said Dr Malahanit is reported that the hymn first appeared anonymously in The Yearly Remembrance Dr C S Robinson a noted clergyman states Beginning thus its public history it the columns of an unpretending magazine the little anonymous hymn with its sweet council to troubled minds found its way into scrapbooks then into religious circles and chapel assemblies and finally into the hymnals That the hymn has had a deep influence for good upon human itv may be seen from the testimonies of ministers given in this article and from the fact that after the death of Miss Elliott above a thousand letters were found among her papers thanking her personally for the great blessings which had come to the eyes of the writ ers through the instrumentality of Just as I Am 22LL Plant bed

ceuntry W F Harzard Pastor Greensburg Ky Mail Contracts Itis strange that President Roosevelt has overlooked the pad ded mail carrying contracts For mer Senator Pettigrew of South Dakota is authority for the statement that on its present contracts the government pays the railroads each year 40 000 000 for carrying the mails while the same lines carry the same amount of express on the same trains for less than 4000000 Senator Pettigrew says The New York Central railway for carrying the United States mail from New York to Chicago over its main lines re ceives each year 3i percent of the value of those lines as well as of all rolling stock and termi nals in New York Chicago and other cities Yet when I moved after prov ing these facts that this com pensation be cut down 20 and afterwards 10 per cent I was vo ted down in committee of the senate Mr Roosevelt has been slow to move against the trusts because he does not desire to unnecessarily disturb the business inter ests He proceeds hi a leisurely way to carry out his views as to some other necessary reforms because he does not desire to be hasty It would seem howev er than when the railroads are robbing the people on the mail

coun ty who are responsible for the goodsubstantial bridges over our streams the same may be hurled at the News for its advocacy and support of such action but such efforts will not throttle themove ment or prevent an unanimous endorsement by the people of this county after this great and important work has been finished The Fiscal Court has been wrestling with this progressive move ment for several years and has accomplished much already but the work is not finished The money spent for bridges has been well placed and it would be hard to find a man who is notproud of the fact that Adair county has built and paid for four iron bridges within the last six years There are other important cross ings that should be bridged and the sooner done the better Our article in last weeks issue touch ing roads was based on conditions as we see them and not from a prejudicial view of the present road making If the Fis cal Court of this county builds bridges it leaves the money spent in substantial improvements and the people will approve its ac tion If it builds good substan tial roads roads that will stand the test of winters and the strain of heavy loaded wagons the peo pIe will likewise endorse it but if the Court spends the money in making grades that disap pear under the test of rain and freezes in the winter then that is another proposition We do not believe that the money spent in the use of the grader has accomplished any permanent good We do not believe that it is wise to spend money for grades unless stone is applied In our opinion the grader has cost the county too much for the good accomplished and if stone can not be applied to the grades then relieve the county of the burden of its operation Dr WG Hunter was not unseated At the last minute Rep

experience in court ing and was rather awkward in that line of business became smitten with the chasms of a maiden who was quite good look ing and doubtless the mirror had apprisde her of her beauty Any how she got struck on herself and had come to consider herself about the best that ever came down the street When the shy young fellow finally summoned sufficient courage to tell the girl that she was the object of his aftfections she made sport of him in the presence of her lady friends and a parcel of dudes who tried to set the fashion of the town She let him down like a thousand rof brick and he had sense enough to quit right then but it seemed to hurt her more than it did him for as time passed she still remained on the single file much to her chagrin and discom fort The young man learned on several occasions that the fair maid would like to make friends with him but he never let Finally she met him one day an then was her chance She beg ged his pardon foi the rude man ner in which she had treate him a few months before but he only smiled and asked her not t mention it You did me a ea t service he said by turning me down if you had encouraged me I might have been fool enough to have wanted to marry you As it is said he I have in view a girl who isnt much on beauty but long on sense This was a stun ner for the young woman and she passed on without another word If a young man is not a dude girls should learn to treat him with due respect anyhow because he is liable to come out mightily when he is trained and then he does not forget There are lots of young women who are goin to be stored away on the ol clftreatment that they gave true and honest young men for the sake of a dude or something worse YOUNG MEN NEEDED The world today is just as much in need of wide awake with1cleanof a young man never hunt the street corners or look on the store counters for him but they go into the schools the home or other places ofemployment where he can be found busy wit his duties The young Dan tha- is wanted is one with ambition who has confidence in himself and his ability to do something and be somebody In the wcrld The young man who possesses these noble traits will always succeed in any duty in life that he may undertake where such ability can be accomplished by diligent application and work On the other hand that young man whose attainments consist largely in the rolling of a cigarette top rfec tion drinking liquor and the v wearing of his hat ata Danger ous angle on his brainless upper story and the telling of smu stories on the street corners

Throughout the rest of his life or nearly half acentury Mr Buchanan is not known to have revealed to anybody the circumstances of this romantic tragedy He would only say that it had 1Changed his hopes

saw her which was on the 15th of January the day after the reported poisoning in San Francisco Since that time I have had several letters from her in her own handwriting and I defy any one to state they are not perfectly logical and clear The only time Mrs Stan ford mentioned the reported poisoning was the day after it occurred as she came on the train with me For my part I do not think she drank allY poisoned water Strychnine might have been introduced into the afterward for spiteful purposes posI sibly a petty quarrel of servants This is only my own theory of the matter President
