Sundays Discourse Last Sunday morning at 11 oclock Dr Crawford came before his congre with the strongest and most discourse that in my judgment the people of Columbia has ever listened to His subject was the Bible taking the Scripture for a foundation the answer of the Savior to the young lawyer What is written in the law how readest thou Luke 1026 The speaker made this a question to apply to every individual how we read the book He said too many people take up too much time on the mysteries of the Bible and the things that they are not able to understand which hinder them in their Christian lives and experiences after the manner of the bird which flies through the trees and bushes in so much that they can not fly as swiftly or with as much ease being hindered by the thick cluster of vines and brush but if they would mount upon their wings and soar far above these hinderances they would fly with more ease In the light of this discourse if the people would rise above unbelief and superstition and study word of God which is the power of God unto Salvation to them that be believe and exercise faith in Jesus Chirstdismiss skepticism and criticism This would tide them over it all and at last they would enter the celestial Home J F Turner Cane Valley Social Misses Ethel and Lillie Jackman opened the doors of their home last Saturday evening to their friends of Cane

afIfectedSome people calls em spirits others calls em transfusion or something like that of thought 1 dont know what they are But one thing I do know and that is something a good many people that know a lot more than I do poohpooh 1 know these things that influences us are there Cant nobody fool me on that point and why I know it is this The biggest thing I ever was let into was the hurricane that swept Galves ton in 1893 I happened to be in Chi cago during the great fire of 1871 as I was there running a tug on the river and lake but it was nothing but stage spectacle show compared with the Gal veston flood Im not going to tell about that only an incident that oc curred in connection with it which has made me dead sure ever since that oftenIWe were some time getting our bearings after the storm was over and it was a week before we began to rec onnoiter the gulf to find out whatI wreckage from the harbor floating ardund there I was part own er of a trim little steamer that wasnt wrecked and I decided to go out to see what I could find There was a good chance for salvage though if one saved anything there was no money left to pay us for doing it Anyway I wanted to see what was out there The water was full of driftwood and wreckage but there was nothing of any value for most everything had been split into kindling wood Most of the stuff we saw was wreckage from cabins that had lined the shore Pret ty soon one of the men sighted a government buoy over to the southwest It was out in deep water and had evi dently broken loose from its moor ings The man who discovered it and the others for that matter thought we might turn an honest penny by going for it and towing it in j YeIhuntIfor something that probably wouldnt pay at all The government was the only owner that could be counted on Nevertheless I refused to go for the buoy Keep her straight ahead I said and why I said it I dont know As I have remarked the thing to have done was the other thing It wasnt long before we saw among the wreckage dead ahead something that looked like a raft I brought a glass to bear on it and after examining it awhile I concluded it was the floor of some cabin that the storm had wrecked But what startled me was a boy on it He was sitting with his breastiI ran up to within sixty yards of the raft The boy didnt change his position and I didnt know whether he was dead or asleep till I rang the bell to stop her Then he straightened up- and stared at us with his hollow hun gry eyes He had on no clothing but a shirt indicating that he was in bed when the storm swept down on him and was either alone or the others with him had been lost He sat there without change of position staring at us while we lowered a boat and pulled for him When we reached him he had strength enough to climb into the boat but before we could get him into the ship he fainted Not having a morsel of food aboard I headed for land On the way we hailed a fruiter and got some brandy and a can of condensed milk A few spoonfuls of the milk had a very strengthening effect on the boy This sufficed till we reached quarantine where I turned him over to the doc tor In a week he was all right again Then his people having been disqov ered and notified an uncle came for him and took him away He was the son of an oysterman theIcame was in cabin It tore the hut to pieces but left the boy on the floor unhurt Then came the waters and floated him on hisraftBut how or when he drifted away is a mystery He could not have been in the turbulent waves dur ing the storm or he never could have kept his place But think of the little fellow drifting for seven days without food or water at the mercy of the sea There are more things to be explain Ied in this case than any I have ever with How did the boy come to be left on the floor of a cabin wrecked over his head by a hurricane How did he escape the frightfulwaves thatI hurricane stirred up How waterVshelter or dancednon the gulf may disasterVand in neither will you find so able an escape as this which pertains to both land and water The explana tion is that truth is stranger than fic tionThe incident was an actual oc currence No one can make me believe that towthat poor boy who if not rescued within a few hours Would die May beit was a second sight in me of which I was not conscious that led me to refuse to go after that buoy and kept me on the track to relieve the sufferei LEONARD plIALLEY j f t r f QflCMPCoHuUIINb Efficiency of HiramP Maxims Sound Killer Proved DEVICE USED ON MANY GUNS t Report of an Army Rifle With Si lancer Attached No Louder Than an Air GunInventor Says the De vice Will Work Perfectly tin Cannon Hiram Percy Maxim gave the first public demonstration the other day of his new rifle silencer the latest of bis inventions Before a group of newspapermen in the offices of his firm of counSelors in New York city The si lencer reduced the report from the highest powered rifles of this and for eign countries to the noise made by the initial cleavage of the air and the puck of the bullet as it struck in a packed sand backstop The whole sound was no louder than that made by the discharge of an air rifle in an inclosed gallery d lawyersia the way from the little Winchester 22 repeater to the Springfield 30 the United States army rifle and the most powerful of its kind in the world Taking the Winchester 22 first Mr Maxim fired a shot from the naked gun to give an idea of the report Then he fired with the silencer attach loudItrigger on an old fashioned musket Now said Mr Maxim Jif you will analyze that noise under proper conditions you will find out that it consists of two noises one produced by the im theIcleavage of the air You pnt hear the gun at all although you may think you do The proof of this comes when you make a test under military condi tions with the target at a sufficient range so that the impact of the bullet is not heard Then you hear only the swish that comes from the initial youffor the report of the gun He went on next to test the silencer TheIweapon because the ammunition cham fiber did not remain altogether closed and a certain report came from the breech of the weapon But the silencer applied to a Winchester 30 high pow er sporting rifle reduced its report to the puck that an air gun might make The same was the case with a six millimeter Mannlicher military rifle a seven millimeter Mauser a 3240 Ste yens marksmans target rifle and a Springfield 30 the new United States army rifle The demonstration with the last gun was particularly con vincing After firing it a couple of times with the silencer Mr Maxim took a little wooden frame to which was attached by a metallic paper clip- one of his calling cards This card he held by means of the frame imme diately in front of the muzzle of the gun and fired it without the silencer The explosion of the gases not only blew the card to pieces but shattered the wooden frame and put the paper clip out of commission Then Mr Max im took another card and having at tached the silencer to the rifle held it in his bare fingers in front of the muz zle The gun was fired Mr Maxim exhibited a card with the Mr shot out of it as cleanly as though the bullet had traveled its target distance The card was not burned and only slightly discolored by the gases Mr Maxim explained also that the silencer diminished by about 50 per cent the recoil of a gun on which it was used He was asked if it could be applied successfully to larger ordnance and replied in the affirmative Mr Maxim declared that it would be easier to apply the silencer to cannon up to the largest calibers than to small arms for the reason that the element of weight would not be a problem to reckon with The Maxim silencer which is at tached to the muzzle of the gun has the outward appearance of a thin steel tube a littlo longer and greater in diameter than a box of stick shaving soap It weighs for the heaviest caliber gUns about eleven ounces and for the lighter ones seven or eight ounces ofr trated somewhat above the center a hole slightly larger than the which is expected to pass through The center of the disk is pressed back and the outside edge is rolled over so as to make a thick ring hollow on the inside When the disks are in place in the chamber the effect is that ofa reversed turbine fastened to the muzzk of the repbclearing the silencer without interfer fence because the hole through the se ries of disks is larger than the diam accomIfly out toward the periphery of the disk inside the rolled over ring and it is only as they slow down that they can escape into the next diskwhere the process is repeated Thence the gases go into the third disk then into the fourth and so on until their force is entirely dissIpated IlIt is just like stirring around a wash bowl full of water explained Mr Maxim You get it rotating fast enough and a hole will run right down through the center to the open escape pipe but no water will run out The silencer 1s applied to the end of the barr lby means of a thread on which it screws iA t r1 t JiC i 9L rF tii t McGaha The health of this community is fairly good A B and J A McGaha have

world for a more industrious fox hunter than J G Campbell He keeps his pack well trained and when you wyourISince Mr Turner seems to question the statements I made two weeks ago in regard to the farms of this section I must in vite the gentleman to meet me in the office of the Adair County Clerk and I will show him records to substantiate every assertion I made One farm in particular sold at those figures several timesIThe last sale was made notable W Godfrey Hunter for gentleIman countties where there is a larger num bet of acres that will produce as well as the section extending around Dingo Ky We have plenty of land that this last year produced 8 to 10 barrels of corn to the acre In the same Section may be found fields that pro duce from 900 to 1200 pounds of tobacco per acre Can you beat it anywhere Yes its true we r have a surplus and thus large areas are covered with sedge sumac dogwood etc But just remove that growth and you t have land that will take the lead of any other section in Kentucky for corn or tobacco So now Mr Turner if this is not satisfactory just pay us a visit next July or August and see the crops grow ia t i 1 rr r ing And if in need of a home ten dollars per acre will buy you a farm thatwill grow more bush els of corn or more pounds of tobacco per acre than lands that would cost from 75 to 150 per acre in other sections Yes it is true we are some distance from the worlds markets and with poor transportation facilities but bring the section back to where should be and you will see pikes and railroads going in all directions No there are no pyramids or ruined cities iri this section but one or two of the spacious hewn log mansions yet stand as monuments to a remote age of prosperity So now Mr Turner if this is not satisfactory just come and see for yourself and may we not ask that you 1 hunt up the old Paul Revere cap and tell us something about the red headed woman before Jong The Lurid Glow of Doom was seen in the red face hands

near the humble cabin which sheltered his infancy The objects about me are intensely interesting for I feel that in some way they areassociated with Lincolns childhood That Spring is especially interesting For often while Lincoln was a child he play ed about its sparkling fountain or sat near it and listened to its splash as it rippled over that rock and fellin the cavern beneathUnder thatstatly oak above the spring the young hero often playedor climbed among its branches On the brinkof that sink hole he has stood many times andcast in stones to hear them splash in the subterranean stream far below As I step toward the cabin I think how often the childish feet of Lincoln have pressed every inch of this poor soil the dull gray of early morning I en- ered the cabinthe Haly of Holies As J stood in that little darkened room I felt somewhat like Moses must have felt wjien he approached the burning bush for such a feeling of awe and rev erence came over me as I never felt be seatIedvery cabin where Inow sit a baby was ofta came of young manhood brushing away the tears with the palm of his rough hand he saw a tablet of Fame and wrote his insthe arms of a nation- I see this cabin as it appeared that day In this gaping fireplace a roaring fire burns but the throat of the chimney is so broad that most of the heat Through the numerous cracks escapesI oiling air of Winter pours in Over the fire a pot of game boils Ican almost hear its greasy gurgles Over that door itShangs a deer skin shot pouch In this aLtable on which a few plain dishes lie i The only evidence of literary taste is Onsthat rude bed in the corner lies Gods grandest creationa mother A noble pride glows on her face Pride for that little crying squirming infant in her arms Little does she dream that one hundred years from this day a nation will gather on this spot to honor the memory herI that in the space of a hundred years this cabin and this spot will be the sacred shrine ofa proud thatImost popular men will count it the high est honor to him to be allowed to step nside this cabin to stand near it and lay the cornerstone ofI Memorial Hall which willpreserve these sacred and make the name of Lincoln dear asI long as a trace of this mighty race treads the earth All this is foreign to her mindand what difference does it make to her No doubt she loves her child just the same And the rough father is proud because he has a son who in a few years will be able to help subdue the wilderness and make a living for the family If that father and mother could have looked into the eyes of that childand I read his destiny therein they would have been awed They would almost have been afraid of their child It was well that that childs destiny was still hidden in the womb of the future ISo no trumpets were sounded nor flags were waved to announce the noI ing of this young sovereign to an home The only ones interested in the event were the immediate family and the charitydduring her trying ordeal But the child grew He drank in the pure air of honesty andambition His path to manhood waS as roughas was ever trod mortal He 1accmphshed I The BuchananLyon COJ Campfcellsville Kentucky

decanter He wore a mask and overalls A click at the knob of the door behind him arrested his attention He turned glass in hand and faced a young lady in even ing dress There was something very unlike the class to which the burglar belonged in his courtly bow You surprise me he said I did not expect to find any of the family up at this time of night I am about to take a glass of wine Will you permit me to4 pour one for you You will find the silver kept for daily use in that drawer pointing to the sideboard Take it all and wel come Dont go upstairs You will- frighten every one dreadfully I dont need more than one piece said the burglar but it must bear the initials of its present owner Only one piece May I ask the cause of such a modest demand I was not aware that burglars took such frightful risks to intentionally leave the plunder behind Whether it was the burglars courtly manner his well modulated voice or an air about him indicating that he had been to the manner born the girl ceased to be afraid of him Perhaps she added you are some respectable man who has been led into this life by force of circumstances and smitten by conscience you con fine yourself to a very small robbery just enough to gain the means for a meal I can give you money instead in which there is nothing to betray you That would be much better than to take a piece of silver with our mark on it Your kind thoughtfulness delights me But money is no object to meat least your money I can make more by taking these sugar tongs Probably they didnt cost 10 They are worth 500 to me Five hundred Yes and if I dont get away with them or some other article in this drawer it will cost me OOin other words there is a difference to me of 1000 You are joking Ethel called a mans voice from rthe hall above Yes

Old Homestead fame was at his homein Swanzey and being a great admirer of Mr Thompson and his play the senator expressed a wish to meet him off the stage and to see his fine home An old friend of Mr Thompson offered to drive down Therefore on one fine morning they drove down to Mr Thompsons house He came out without coat or hat hands behind his back as usual The following conversation ensued Denman How d do Bill BillHow are you Den Mr Thomp son I want to introduce Senator Mrs Gallinger andI Senator GallingerMr have witnessed your great the Old Homestead many times and always with the greatest pleasure but I want to say it is with still greater pleasure that I am permitted to greet you in your own beautiful home in old Swanzey DenmanYas its cheaper Mr Thompsons quickness at repar tee is well illustrated by an incident which took place during a run from Detroit to one of the smaller towns in Michigan Mr Thompson had hired a sleeper to get him to the companys destination and while making a stop at one of the intermediate stations Uncle Josh left the car and going into the depot satisfied his craving for some raw oysters On coming out he noticed one of the railroad employees underneath the sleeper measuring the distance between the wheels What are you doing there my friend asked Uncle Josh Measuring the trucks to see if this car will run O K on the side branch that you have got to travel over Thats all right but Ive hired this car to get me to a certain point and if you dont get me there it will be no pay Thats what you might call measure for measure The following incident occurred when Mr Thompson was westInight stands through the middle The night the performance was to be given in a certain town there was such a terrific snowstorm that no one yen tured out to the theater with the ex ception of one manIUndaunted by a one man audience Thompson stepping before the curtain told the lone listener that they intend ed to give the performance from beginning to end as though the hall were packed that they had advertised to play that night and that to prove the company was thoroughly honest and always ready to give a fair deal they would start the performance atI the usual This timeIwho had marks so he shouted out Say cut it out will you I am the janitor and I want to get home early A few years ago Denman Thompson was discussing with a party of friends a certain automobile race They hadnt any right said one of the party to deprive the farmers of the highway which they are paying taxes for In reply the actor told this story A few days after the race he said I happened to be driving over part of the same course I stopped at a farm house and asked to be allowed to give the horse water I got some cider What did you think of the auto mobile race I asked my genial host The best thing for me that ever happened replied the farmer What I exclaimed I thought all you farmers were against it Not me said the farmer You see I got a balky mule that draws my stuff into market every morning Yesterday morning that mule balked half way to the market Couldnt get him to stir While I was trying to coax him I saw a strange thing lying in the roadwaysort of a rubber thing I picked it up and accidentally squeeze- dit It let out a turrible noise just like lone of those machines and that mule started me on the tailboard and nev er stopped

of bereavement to give up to Him who doeth all things well and who guardeth his loved ones against anything that would mar their happiness While here he was cared for by earthly friends but what is that compared with the care of a Heavenly Father He is now asleep in the arms of Jesus dreaming of the sweet Angels that bore him across the silvery waters While we feel satisfied that his name is written in pure gold in the Lambs Book of Life we feel that we should not mourn our loss but rather rejoice Were the power given him he would look down on the grief stricken companion and say weep not

by American Press Asso ciation Raymond Nolan was eighteen when he entered the service of asmall bank He was a bright fellow not only ready to do his own work but that of any one else He had been taught the value of money and that the surest way to start a fortune was by saving Consequently each week when he drew his salary he put aside a certain amount for this purpose Raymond was a great favorite with Mr Porter owner of the bank Seeing that the youngster was in every way fitted for promotion he promoted him as rapidly as vacancies occurred At each raise of salary Raymond increas ed the proportionate amount that he put aside for his nest egg When that nest egg reached 500 he looked about for some method of investment He bought a bond paying 4 per cent interest From this time his capital increased a little more rapidly His attention being called to certain shares that were paying double the interest he received on his bond he changed his investment The shares not only paid him the interest but rose in value He sold them and had 1000 of his own As year after year passed Nolan found himself nearer to the amount he had fixed upon for legitimate invest ment Sometimes he would sink away from it under a degression of securi ties but usually upon a reaction he would find himself further ahead than before At one of these depressions he concluded to increase his investment accepting a loan from his broker for the purposein other words buy on a margin Stocks were considered very cheap and bound to have a good rise As Nolan had his affairs arranged a rise of five points would give him his 10000But contrary to expectations stocks continued to depreciate sinking in stead of rising five points Then they rested awhile and another period of liquidation carried them down ten points further On down they went till Nolan found that he had lost his capi tal His brokers called on him for margin and told him that if he did not hand it in at once they would sell him out Stocks were very low and when the market turned they would likely boom This was a turning point in Nolans career He borrowed 1000 from the bank without reporting the loan Stocks went down and he borrowed more money One morning ten years after Nolan had entered Mr Porters service he went into that gentlemans private of fice and said to him Mr Porter some time ago at a sud den collapse of the stock market I lost my savings of years I believed that there would soon be a rise that would restore all I had lost and give me much more I borrowed money from the bank to use for margin stocks have been still going down and I have lost 25000 of your money The president told him that the shortage had been discovered that the bank had made other losses which they might have weathered without this one As it was a failure was un avoidable Mr Porter said the young man call a policeman and turn me in for conviction There will be no trial I shall plead guilty No replied the president I shall not prosecute you Then I will surrender myself The president endeavored to per suade the young man to go out into the world unsmirched and begin again But no He had sinned beyond his own forgiveness and his life had lost its charm Thereafter he would live under the blight in any form fate as signed him He left the president gave himself up to the police under his own confession and within a week was in state prison beginning a term of ten years Nolan receiving the shortened time for good behavior was discharged in about seven years The banker had failed and had died leaving a child a boy without mother or support of any kind As soon as the prisoner regained his liberty he sought out this child whom he found selling papers Nolan went to a merchant whom he had known before his embezzlement and asked for a position The only job the merchant would give him was that of porter He accepted it took the boy to live with him sent him to school and otherwise provided for his maint nanceOne habit
