Stevenson Some Days Must Be Dark and Dreary Most men have felt the power of the above words and learned in Gods school that prosperity has been set over against adversity that man might not find any thing after him In this life we have dark days and bright ones Happy ought we to be whose path way is illuminated by a hope in the risen Son Many of the darkest days of history have bourne the choicest fruits to the glory of God and to the good of man It was a dark day when Isreal groaned in the bitterness of the Egyp tian bondage and had the bondage been less bitter Isreal might have been con tent in Egypt but out of it came the exodus It was a dark day when the followers of Jesus were being perse cuted but out of it came the world wide preaching of the gospel It was a dark day when the Puritans fluding no rest for the souls of their feet sail ed from the old world and out of it came America But the darkest of all days appeared when the divine man expired on Calva ry yet all our hopes and happiness come from that day Do not be dis couraged for Behind the cloud the sun still shines When the demons of dispair get on your track and the little imps suggest discouragement look not to the right left nor behind you but look steadfast ly before you and run with patience Echeos From Missionary Meeting The last fifth Sunday meeting of Russell Creek association which con vened with

The Com mbnwealth Life Insurance Company 1 On June the 1st of this year this Company celebrated its 3rd anniversaryThis time for stock taking both on the part of the officer- acid representatives of the Com pany and on the part of its large clientele of policy holders and those who in future may b in need of such protection as the Company affords Entering upon its work at a time whe the atmosphere wa clouded with the revelations of z the Armstrong Committee it se itself to the task of establishingr f in Kentucky a Life Insurance Company on a basis that would x merit and secure the fullest con 5fidence of all the people The increase each year in the business of the Company demon strates its steady growth in public confidence At the end this the third year more than nin million dollars 900000 of insurance is carried by the Com pany and all of it has been writ ten in the State of Kentucky alone This is a record which far surpasses that of most of the leading Companies in the country During the year 1907 the net gain in the Companys Insurance amounted t o upwards of one million dollars 100000000 more than that of any outside Company doing business in the State It may be added also that the first five months of 1908 show a substantial gain in business over the corresponding months of 1907 When it is considered that this business has been secured with out the high pressure methods of many Companies it must be con ceded that this is a most substantial r and creditable record f Some of the competing Com panies have been doing business in Kentucky for upwards of thir ty years The record of this home Company is significant for r two reasons viz 1st Because it indicates an awakening on the part of the people of the State to the advantage of building up their own financial institutionsSecond Because it shows that there must be extraordinary merit in the contracts of the Company that has so far suc ceeded in outstripping its competitors Every citizen of the State should be interested in any plan that makes for the present and future good of that State Only by intelligent cooperation in allI matters pertaining to the general welfare can the best interest of any society be conserved If there is anything that works against the general good of a community or State the people who suffer from it ought to work together to eliminate it It hasI long been recognized as misfor tune at least that Kentucky should be paying a large tribute I to other States in the matter of t Life Insurance Nearly eight million dollars go out of the State- f annually in premiums to fcdm panies located in ths N rthI frEast and West It is safe to inff reserve by these Companies is nearrly fifty million dollars a sum far in excess of all the b nkJ lifIt in capital of the State While ft is true that this sum will event r 11 jr febe teturned to the State It 1 islkevertheless a mistake ofta jt J gft fii1ur ii sm tr o i I k 7 J1ilf jl 1r n LA1 tjt itveryaway for during many years the use of the money is lost to the State Will any one be heard to contend that this is necessary or desirable In years past there was a rea son for this condition to prevail homescompanies in which the people could carry their Insurance But this reason no longer prevails composeed entirely of home people now of fers its contracts and submits its claims to the patronage of the meritsand offers a remedy for a condi iontg prevailedBut Company could hope to achieve such signal success a that mentioned merely on th ground of local necessities conditions being equal we natur ally favor our neighbors and friends But unless condition are equal no such favors can be bee met and eventually merit wins And it is because of the extra ordinary merit of the contracts of this Company that success has followed As far as good busi ness policy permits the element of uncertainty has been re moved A higher rate is charged for insurance premiums than is ordinarily necessary This Company has from the beginning guaranteed its contracts to return liberal dividends or rebates on these premiums Other Companies merely promise you the div idends and most of them pay far smaller dividends than the Com monwealth actually guarantees This is a winning feature Then the contracts themselves are free from technical and obscure claus es requiring the judgment of an expert to interpret In all es sentials they contain the most modern and uptodate ideas that have been worked out by the most reliable insurance experts No public question has been more generally discussed in re cent years than the great ques tion of Life Insurance A few years ago the public conscience was shocked because of the seeming disregard of high of fiicials for their obligations as revealed by the Armstrong Com mittee It dawned upon the pub lic that Life Insurance had as sumed such enormous proportions that anything that threatens its efficiency is a blow at the very foundations of society It was then realized that it remedies aI great imperfection in our social system bringing the force of cooperative effort to the aid of every man who takes advantage of itFor these and many other reasons it is most desirable that this business should be conducted on a high plane and with a conscientious regard for the public good Its necessity is more and more appreciated tis no fad even though it has practically grownup in a generation It meets and supplies the needs of men and women in all the conditions of life Therefore its future is a matter of the deepest concern Whatever may be the problems for the future in regard to this subject in general one thing is plain to the people of Kentucky Commonwealth is a Comps tiy that merits the indorsemenfe of every i ze fSt Chh be satisfactorily solved It stands for the interests of Kentucky and for clean Life Insurance The growth and progress of the Com pany should therefore be a mat ter of interest and pride to every Kentuckian Subsequent events have proved that no mistake was made in the launching of this Company The people have shown their appreciation of its purposes and have rewarded it accordingly Hence forth the only remaining ques tion is the measure of service it shall render to the State It has thse future it purposes to square the deed with the word- Commonwealth Life Insurance Company AgtsSteKyrLindsey Wifson Training School a

consulting a competent and reliable physician but the fact does remain that there are many ailments that can be cured at home at very little expense Such remedies can be bought at any firstclass drug store for a small sum Among the diseases that can be effec tively treated at home are such as per tain to the stomach liver and bowels like constipation dyspepsia biliousness flatulency sour stomach bloated stomach sick headaches heartburn etc For these troubles there is no better remedy than Dr Caldwells Syrup Pepsin the great herb laxative compound and among its staunchest friends are the doctors themselves In such troubles they knoW ihey nave nothing better to offer than the in gredients contained in this remedy and hence the liberal ones advise their patients to take it It often happens that at the commencement of an attack some people hesitate to take such a simple remedy and run to a doctor but after trying various doctors they finally take Dr Caldwells Syrup Pepsin and have their confi dence rewarded by a cure A good case in point Is that of Mr Herrin of Lawrenceville Ill who suffered from what the doctors called ca tarrh of the stomach He was given up to die by three leading physicians He had no appetite couldnt digest what little he did eat bad severe pains in the stomach and finally moments when he himself thought he would die Ultimately he was advised to try Dr Caldwells Syrup Pepsin and did so and now he is entirely cured and has gained 25 pounds He naturally advises all sufferers from weak stomach to use it It can be had in 50 cent and il bottles

object r of a teacherslassociation t notwithstanding the fact that I do not contemplate givingr my entire time or attention to teaching I must say with Dr Seeley that The greatest work that can engage the thought and invite the activitY of man is the education of the young There is much I would like to say along this line but as there yuseother speakers who doubtless have messages of more import ance than anything I could say j I must give all a chance to say somethingMontain has well said that the greatest and most important difficulty of human science is the education of children And may I not add that upon the proper dependstthe future welfare of the individ- ualJ the home the community the nation and the world It is an old proverb andoh j how true that as is the teacher so is the school And thus if the teacher is to be a moulder of character he should be very careful in his every word and action The children learn to think as he thinks to act as he acts I verily believe that the standard intelligence and mor ality and in fact the welfare of our countryrests upon the public school teacher more than any other individual in the whole universe fj He is the one factor who can make home a Paradise on earth where each individual will mutually help and strength en the other and it is upon his shoulders where rests the foundation of all civilization His thus is the noblest and grandest of all professions And in enter ing upone his duties he should naItivewho takes upon himself the vast responsibility without consider ing his fitness without remem I bering that he is a moulder of character is worse than a mur derer and is as equally responsi ble to his God The murderer can only destroy the body but a careless teacher may destroy the soul Froebel in speaking of his first experience in the schoolroom said It seems as if I had found something I had never known but always longed for always missed as if my life had at last discovered its native ele ment I felt as happy as the fish in the water the bird in the airFroebel was a successful teach er a true moulder of character Another example of the true teacher may be found in Pes talozzi He could not be flatter ed by offers of political prefer ments He deliberately rejected such offers and summed up his souls desire in the followingyv wordsitI want to be a teacher We hear much complaint about Weft f should not so complain Consid i i i 4S ermg the teacher as a class they feabout the best paid laborers befound The true teac etthe real t Yflyj EitTsUtf ty J moulder of character is not with out his reward The name of- Columbus as the discoverer oi America and of Washington as- the founder of this nation will grace the pages of history for all time to come but whose name will live longer or be more re spected than that of the great teacher of whom it is said There was once a heavenborn head master by name Thomas Arnold- who ruling at Rugby taught the boys to be good Christians true gentlemen and be merry mis chievous boys still We must repeat As is the teacher so is the school If the teacher is aI moulder of character it is of vast importance that he set an example worthy of imitation His actions should be his great est lecture For as Emerson has well said How can I hear what you say when what you are is continually thundering in weIery presence of children They are ever on alert watchfulness and will detect a crooked step that an older person would not notice You may stand on this floor and argue for hours for this method or that but I must state that no difference what his method may be if the teacher has the true spirit of a teacher and sets an example worthy of imitation he is a true moulder of character and his services are worth more in the community than that of the Pedogogic methods of Christendom combined Lowell puts it thus The spirit and ex ample of the teacher are more valuable than his methods and the person is most valuable in the sceool room who fills it with sweet reasonableness I do not mean to discourage any one but if you are to be a successful teacher a true mould er of character you must not enter the school room with an expectation of sailing through the term on flowery beds o ease The teachers work is not a bed of roses There are many trials discouragements and difficulties of daily occurance There are things to encounter that will disturb the equinamity of the most patient It is not because children are bad andvicious most of them are good If they are not good it is because their past training has not been what it should have been Their par ents or instructors have not been true moulders of character Al most all children are mischievous restless full of life and often find it hard to submit to the necessary requirements of school discipline It is here where the impatient teacher often arouses antagonism and rebellion It is here where many a teacher sets an example unworthy of imita tion It would do us all a lot of good if we would but make a closer study of the life of that hegreatwas reviled reviled not again While the teachers life may not be all sunshine and roses it is not all rain The teacher at school and especially the teach er of small children if he is true to his calling lives in the atmosphere of springtime all the year round The primary school is Gods own garden The tender lives developing here into blossoms conceal within them possi bilities ofggreater service to hu manity t anaUthePeqtiful temple of nature without Here each indiyjduallif e iyj gmsas I ForEoIes Ills J22 urable consequence and great is the reward of the teacher who leads them arightIWhat more praise could one de sire than is given to Mary Lyons of whom it is said So com pletely did the ideal of her own life become the ideal of their lives that most of the girls went out as Christian women Where ever they taught they set up anew Mount Holyoke a christian seminary Wherever they marred they set up Christian homes It is said that she was very pa tient and that she loved her pupils And let me tell you right here that love is the key note that makes one a true moulder of character It is a passion that willnot create antogonism If you love your pupils they will love and obey you The most vicious and headstrong can be conquered in this way And let me impress it upon you strongly that if you do not possess that genuine natural sympathy that brings heart to heart if you do not have that love for children andIyou the best and ncblest that which is the character of the child you can not become a factor in the childs intellectual and moral de velopment you are not a true moulder of character and should never attempt teaching And now in conclusion let me repeat that to be a successful teacher a true moulder of char acter one must lay selfish motives aside and seek the good of others He should be guided by the methods of that greatest of all teachers of whom divine writers have said He went about doing good and againI that He gave his life others There is nothing in the profession to invite a selfish spirit but there is everything to invite one like Adhem who loves his fellow men- The

human being ever acquired No man or youth ev er raised himself in the estimation of a sinner by the use of foul language Purity of thought and speech are valuable virtues And yet its our honest opinion that the man who unwittingly cusses a little now and then is not half so big a sinner as the fellow who continuously thinks evil and speaks evil of his neighbor and refuses to pay his hon est

Washington from Mr Bryan himself that he wants peace and harmony in Kentucky among the Democratic party and no friend of his will utter a word or do an act that will in the least have a tendency to

adjourned the Republicans themselves can fine very little to commend while those Republicans who not believe in the Presidents policies will find much to condemn JIt has absolutely ignored every im portant recommendation made by the President It is a Congress guilty more of sins of omission than of commission It failed to remove the duty on wood pulp because the paper trust was op posed to it in the face of the fact that the demand from the people was overwhelming The Re publicans were even afraid to let the matter come to a vote in the House because they knew it would pass Even a worse case of omission was the strangling in the committee the Publicity bill which required political parties to publish a full list of campaign expenses and from what sourses the funds were de rived The Democratic leader John Sharp Williams challenged in vain for a vote on this matter In the face of the fact that the trusts are prospering at the expense of the public largely through the high protective tariff not a particle of tariff reform legistation was permitted Ad mitting in their State platforms that the tariff needs revision a Republican Congress absolutely refused to consider it About all that Congress has done has been to pass a makeshift currency bill and to break the record for ex travagant appropriations in the face of the condition that the whole country is economizing to meet financial depression The records of Congress instead of strengthening the Republican party will be an element of great weakness in the approaching- Presidential raceE Town News ICome r Into Camp Boys As the clans of the Unterrified begin to gather and the State Convention of the Undefiled to loom up through the rosy mists of the near distance and the dawning dayonly next Satur days Primaries intervening two things are very noticeable the buoyancy of the Democrats and the dismay of the Republi cansThat there should be the prospect = of a happy family and a harmonious party at Lexingtonvr is inconceivable to the Bloody rs shirt crowd who ply their voca v tion of teachery and piousness vc between the Custom House and the City Hall of Louisville car rying the Mugwump banners of z Perfidy and Pharisaism These are vain enough and E foolish enough to fancy that they E can run our business as they ran 5 their own upon lines of civic righteous malignity All sorts t of schemes are being hatched E and all sorts of lies heralded E with the hope of getting Demo N crats by the ears and thus of duplicating the disgraceful scenes which the doughfages of God and Morality lately pulled off in honor of Taft and Graft and Civil Service Reform It wont do as the old Roman used to say It cannot be made to work Though Democracy lost the last election it Ms not i lost its head It has no idea of accepting ifte Republican invlta- tibntb bite off itsffiiose to spite it i t i r 4yjr 1 1 rr its face and still less to cut its own throat He who carries a knife to Lexington will be in danger of Hellfire but he who totes a razor shall be forever damned That there should be a few zealous marplots more selfwill ed than sensible the rather bent upon exploiting their angry pas sions and fool notions than serv ing the good of the party is to be expected But the Primaries next Saturday and the Conven tion the Thursday following will make short shift of these The whole trendof Democratic thought in Kentucky is for agree ment The great body of Demo crats are sick and tired of fight ing one another They want to fight the Republicans They want to rescue the State from the Republicans They want to nominate and elect Mr Bryan President of the United States They want to recover some ad ditional Congressional Districts There is but one way to do this and that is to wipe out and begin over again to unite all the fac tions to combine not to divide The man who utters a discord ant note at Lexington may be surely spotted as an emissary of the Republicans of else a poor dog with a grievance to be re dressed by the sacrifice of the National Ticket and the Con gressional Districts this year and the whole State That much is too plain to admit of argument State questions local questions have nothing to do with the conflict before us We are agreed upon the essential features of the National Platform That is all that calls us to Lexing ton The introduction of ex traneous matter can be only in the interest of faction seeking its own gratification and aggrandise ment at the expense of Dem ocracy in the Nation and the State Nobody except an enemy would suggest such a thing That it is being suggested by the most unscrupulous of our enemies stamps it for what it is and should prove an object lessen to every true Democrat whatever his personal predilec tions may be So come into camp boys and all The fight before us can be won if each Democrat gives his heart to the cause and puts his shoulder to the wheel It can not be won otherwise Talk of re venge and reprisal is something worse than treasonable It is suicidal Mr Bryan has for the first tine the chance of going to the polls with a united enthusiastic party behind him Shall it be Kentucky that balks and draws back Upon the Electoral Vote of Kentucky the final result is likely to hinge What com mentary on Democracywhat a cruel irony of fatewould it be if we lost the election through the loss of
