Earlington are exceptional For many years the miners by their v own vote have defeatedevery effort to sell intoxicants in EadI ington This feeling spreads to the adjoining mines atStOharles and Mortons Gap all of which mines are conducted by the St Bernard Coal Company The miners are citizens na i owningihaving F better than the average mechan J ic many of them having buggies and musical instruments- At peculiar condition exists I here The miners are friends f with their employers They arE thejfproperty of employers They feel that the property is their means of suppport and it is y their duty to protect itjThey are intelligent men who read write and educate their children They believe that they are capable of selfgovernment They feel that they can make their own contracts with their employers They believe in promotion d from the ranks and all promotions are made from the r ranks Some make much more than others but it is because they are more expert and have the right to use their expertness in increasing their income They refuse to be tied by tho will ofI other people not interested inI their work They decline toj strike at tho demand of unionsj in fact they refuse to affiliate with the United Mine Workers This system of the miners hasc brought about a peculiar = tion There is a big strike on in the coal flplds but the strikers are men who never worked in the mines They were imported to this county and are kept hero e drawing strike benefits The mines are running full last and the property of the company is guarded by the men The miners have no desire to strike and refuse to do so They are satisfied with their condi tions There has been considerable I violence one or two houses dynamited several houses fired into and growing out of these conditions two men have been killed and several wounded This condition did not prevail before the invasion of miners from other territory This condition would end in twentyfour hours if the representative of theI Unites Mine Workers of America left the terrItoryIThere is a difference of opin ion iii many quarters regarding what should be done but the mine operators and the mine workers are positive that there will be no unionizing of the mines in this section h cI fj f h r jIIIiijl BY 1NaCST Y WE THRIVE TWELFTH I essentially Another peculiar condition ex ists hero that is rarely found in other places If a man is sick or hurt his family is not left witheut an income His wages are paid He is attended to until well and given ample oppor tunity to refund what he has drawn If he dies the amount he has drawn during his illness or injuries is stricken from the books and is not held against his family or their Ijttle prop ertyThis property is known in all coal circles as a good place for miners to work and for every vacancy there are many applicants It is difficult to find a similar situation either in the matter of the strike the nature of the miners or the system of paying thorn The mines of this county have brought the county from low in the ranks among the counties of the State to seventh in position and the substantial business men realize that mining industry has been the making of the county A Judicious Magistrate The calm and judicious an nouncementof Magistrate Mc Garvey of Pittsburg that the Commonwealth would be protected against all disorder incited by the steel strikers or other per sons was an admirable contrast to the incendiary utterances fI Mayor Black of McKeesport The magistrate takes the broad ground that the laws must be en forcedand that no gathering calculated to provoke disorder will be permitted Ignorance of the law will excuse no one and turbulent foreign element so often used to pull the chestnuts out of the fire by designing lawbreakers will have to bear the consequences of their acts Such a judicial pronouncement- as this is the very thing needed in the strike centers where there is a disposition to indulge in rioting as the chances of strike success grow fainter Officials like Magistrate McGarvey are the best friends the strikers themselves have for they show that the law makes no such discriminations as demagogues may promise and hence union men like all other men must refrain from violence The law as tho CourierJournal has repeatedly said is the poor mans best friend and the court which en forces its mandates is doing the truest service to the laborer as wellas to his employers and the community in generalCourier JournalStrike LeadersDefy Chicago Aug 24The molders on a strike at the AllisOhal mers foundry here who were ined from

Scramble THE PRIMARY A FARCE I ND A FAILURE Praise for the Independent Democrats Mixed Tickets In Hopkins and Other Counties EDITOR EVENING POST As you have deemed it proper to criticise my actions in the meeting of the Republican State Central Committee in your city on the 17th inst I will esteem it a favor if you will allow ine to make a statement through your valuable paper in regard to my action in the said meeting- I desire to state first that I have not at any time approved the action of the Jefferson County Executive Committee in calling and conducting the late primary election in the city of Louisville I think the primary not only illadvised but that it was a farce and a failure from beginning to end and deserves the severest condemnation and I think those parties who com Initted the theft and destruction of the ballots should be prose cuted for this grave offense but I am of the opinion now as I was at the time of the meeting of the State Central Committee that a fair and honest convention or primary could be held in the city of Louisville and confidence and harmony could in a measure be restored and order brought out of chaos and confusion Acting upon my convictions I thought that the best solution of the cOll1mitttJaicity composed of Republicans and independent Democrats to act with a likenumber selected by the Executive Committee of Jefferson county who were em powered to appoint officers and hold a convention to nominate candidates and to appoint a campaign committee to take charge and conduct the cam paign and that plan would meet with the approval of the people I do not believe that the State Central Committee has any right in law or in equityto abolish a county or Congressional district committee and further think that to establish a precedent of this kind would be revolutionary and would at some time in the near future result as disastrously to the Republican party as the Music Hall convention did to the Democracy of the State I am also informed there are a large number of good substan tial citizens on the Executive Committee of Jefferson county who would not commit or sanction fraud in any shape and in order to remove Mr Sapp we would have to remove these gentlemen 1 stated in an address before the State Central Committee on the 17th inst that the people in Kentucky were not in the least interested as to who was Col lector in the Fifth district and they were but little as to who would be the next United States Senator from this State but that they were interested in electing- a majority of the members of the next General Assembly of Kentucky in order to secure a just apportionment of the State and a fair and honest election law in accordance with the pro visions of the constitution and to save the people from a relent less political machine which has bid defiance to law and ordor I want to say now as I have said in ublicspeeches and in private conversations that I have time most profound confidence in your L loyalty and devotion to the cause of local selfgovernment and that we owe to you and the courageous Democrats of the State a debt of gratitude that we can never repay It was through your aid and influence in the midst of danger and death that we were enabled to elect our State ticket in 1890 and the journal that states that the loyalJDemocrats who espoused the cause of the people ill that relentless conflict are cowardsI shows that it has as little judg ment and gratitude as it has in fluenceIn Second Congressional district we have sought the aid and influence of the independent Democrats and in nominating candidates have placed leading Democrats on the ticket in Davi ess McLean Hopkins Webster Union and Christian counties and I feel that I can confidently say there is not a Congressional district in better shape than the Second We are now using every effort to induce Senator Triplett to accept the nomination which will be tendered him in this Sen atorial district We must unite in one grand army and march forward with unbroken ranks and unshaken confidence to re deem the old Commonwealth from a selfconstituted oligarchy and this can be done by electing a majority of the members of the next General Assembly of Kentucky and should the distin guished body conclude to elect either Senator Lindsay exGov Brown exGovBuckner or the Hon W 0 Owens United States Senator in preference to the dis tiuguished Republicans who nav- ebqi mentioned for timis high po situm ktit illmeets mtli the approbation very lover of liberty RespectfullyW mnEns RIOT IN A SILK MILL Howling Mob Threatens to Drag Non Union Girls From the Looms Pittston Pa Aug 23A sec ond riot occurred at the Sterling silk mill this morning more se rious than a clash which occurred last night and the howling mob now surrounding the mill threat ens to enter it by force and drag the nonunion girls from the loomsWhen the strikers arrived at the mill they were provided with stones and other weapons The first object of the attack was a small Italian settlement near the mill The nonunion girls in the last nights riot took refuge in these houses and escaped from the strikers crowd Out of Funds The Pittsburg correspondent of the Philadelphia Press says the reason the strikers have ceased to give out news of the aid voted them by labor organizations and from other sources is because these contributions are falling far short of expectations It is also said that the Amalgamated officials see nothing but a dreary prospect in the future as to con tributions and though they have ample funds for the present these cannot last long The story is extremely probable for there is no such general movement in favor of the strikers as there was in the Homestead difficulty and yet the association was soon des titute that year The large sum of 1000000 was distributed by the Amalgamated Association from all sources but it is doubt ful that anything like as much as this will be raised now Courier Journal It Is estimated that the Texas cotton crop will be iv million bales less than lust year 1 r k r SIR REUBEN HEADLEY LLOYD t Grand Master Grand Encampment of the United States Who Is Now In Louisville Talks of Templarlsm and Its History In This Country Most Eminent Sir Reuben Hed ley Lloyd Grand Master of the Grand Encampment of the United States of America who is now in Louisville is looked upon as a father of Templarism in Cal ifornia and the members of the California Commandery reverence him While he has almost reached that stage in life when most men are supposed to retire from active business Mr Lloyd appears to be in his prime and his sole aim is to do something that will promote his order TilE ORDER GROWIXG Talking of Templarism to a re porter for the CourierJournal Sir Lloyd said The order is growing just like the world is growing It becomes larger as our population increases Three years ago we had only about 114000 Templars and today that number has increased to more than 125000 and continues to grow steadily Of this num ber California has about 3500 but the encampment is prosper ous on the coast and shows the a same steady growth as it does east of the Rocky mountains The order has grown like the United States have and in many respects it is modeled after the United States Our Grand Oom mandery is to Templarism what the Congress and Senate are to the United States The State Commanderies legislate for the subordinate commanderies and the Grand Commanderies legislate for those of the various States and deride all questions of national or international import ance As a Stato legislates for the individual counties and cities and the United States for the individual States so do we for our State commanderies Our prin ciplo is the same as the individual State governments and the Government of the United States Our members have rendered dis tinnuislmed service to the Union bringISome of the most prominent patriots of the Union have be longed to the Templars andI prominent among them was Gov Clinton of New York who wasI the first Grand Master The has from time to time taken a prominent part in the advancement of the affairs of State and nationIWERE OXCE EXTINGUISHED Templars were extinguished once as you know because theyI became too powerful and too wealthy and after they reorga nized the order its records had to be kept secret and many things have been done of which no re cords were handed down Many things were lost and today sim ply rest in tradition The history of the order is like the history of the human race The human race has increased in size and intelli gence and so have the Templars While the order remains substan tially the same as it did centuries ago yet reconstruction has caused many changes Every Commander Past Commander Generalissimo and Captain Generalissimo of the country constitutes the Grand Command ery and each State has these officers fortythree in all and they elect the Grand Master It is impossible to say how many will be present at any one time At present there are more than six hundred of these officers but nine compose a quorum and can elect and transact business PURPOSE OF ENCAMPMENTS The purpose of these encampments 1S to legislate for the good of the order as tho Congress of the United States legislates for the States The first Grand En campment of the United States was heM in 1810 and one has been held every three years since in the principal cities of the East maid West Each State is a jurisdiction for which the Grand En fortyhreeStates are divided among the various States each having one except Massachusetts and Rhode Island which are combined These States organized together when Templarism was in its in fancy in the United States and they have continued together all these years Massachusetts lays claim to being the oldest Templar State in the Union though this is disputed by both Pennsylvania and South Carolina It is an open question which is the oldest and it can not be told which is really organizing simply a matter of tradition Boston claims to have the largest commandery of any city in the United States She has one with nine hundred members and if there is another with a larger membership I have not heard of it The California Commandery was organized in 1852 and its members have taken prominent part and have held leading positions under the State and Federal Governments Its members have a Governor and include exGov ernors United States Senators prominent and other well known California men who have Ibeen prominently identified with the State There Should be More Like Her A bright young man of mean and social position but with sev eral bad habits recently asked young lady to be his wife Many girls would have felt flat tered and accepted him as he was considered the catch of the town but her answer was sharp and to the pointuYou say you love me and I have qualities you wish in the woman who is to be your wife It may be so but there are habits I do not have and I cannot and will not accept any man for a husband who has them I do not smoke swear nor indulge in wine I do not spend my days in idleness nor walking the streets with silly unthinking girls who try to be ultrafashiona- ble lam not in the habit of making unkind and vulgar remarks about ladies who pass mo on the street nor do I spend the greater part of the night with questionable associates As you have allor the most of these habits I am not willing to become your wife Nothing but misery and wretchedness could come of such a union and when I do marry if ever I want a man who can show the same high moral standard in a husband he expects to find in a wife This young lady deserves the highest praise for having tho r courage of her convictions and the young ladies nIl over this land could shape the course of t many a man for good if they would demand the same standard- of moral refinement in a man that is expected in a woman Some girls may say Oh I like a man with a little spice of the devil in him I dont mind him drinking a little wine or being a little bit fastthats fashionable nowDid you ever stop to think thetlittle spice of the devil will after marriage leaven the whole lump and the man who is fast before he marries is usually a high flyer and a late stayer afterwards If the girls would stop going with a man who drinks he would stop drinking If they would refuse to receive the attention of a man who is morally impure and let him feel that there was a gulf be tween them and that gulf couldconly be bridged by good tions carried out ho would soon leave off his immorality and strive to reach her own high standard There is no good reason why a man should not be as pure as a woman They are endowed with the same amount of reasoning power and are subject to like temptations If anything tho woman should be more in dulged as she is the weaker ves sel yet wo demand a standard of purity in her that is seldom if ever found in man I 2 THE BEE EARLWGTON KY lI I I I I I+Hrtt + Jt Ett T 1XLPTC I r lTCO t tU e M M I f rThe season of the thunderstorm is again with us and the annual crop of stories about the damage wrought by lightning Is being gathered From all points of the compass com these tales one of a yachting part being struck by the deadly bolt one of the ruin and destructlop wrought on a church another of the man who is struck and escapes with the loss of his shoesThese tales that are unfortunately true and well substantiated serve to root more deeply In human nature the fear of thunderstorms It may seem in SNAP SCOT OF Lionrxiso deed that the fear of thunder and lightning hns now been axed by hered ity Into an ineradicable trait From the very earliest times of recorded liu man history Instances are found of th dread Inspired by the heavenly elect trical display Recent and nnclert attempts to ac count for the fear of electrical storms can find no reasonable explanation of it It Is clearly proved that lightning is responsible for only a small fraction of 1 per cent of the worlds deaths t The unreasoning impulse to hide as natural and inborn as the hatred of snakes One explanation of the fear is that the terrific power of the light ning naturally arouses terror But this scarcely explains when one considers that the majority of persons have never seen any one or anything struck by d lightning Years however are required to eradicate the memory from the minds of those who have There is something fearful and almost super natural about the suddenness and force of the stroke that makes it a terror even to the Imagination To the question What Is lightning the ordinary person will reply that Its an electrical discharge from the clouds Asked to explain further Its origin development etc and Ills answers become very noncommittal anal vague As a matter of fact even the b greatest of scientists have confessed themselves unable to explain fully anti finally n flash of lightning The usual scientific explanation that is possibly correct and sufficiently accurate forIeveryday use Is that lightning Is a charge of superfluous atmospheric elec trlcity The earth becomes especially c In hot weather surcharged with dec tricity which takes the form of cur rents The earths envelope of ntmos I phere Is also necessarily charged i Evaporation carries a minute charge of electricity upward with each tiny globule of moisture and the charged I vesicles rise until the cooler strata otI upper air will no longer support them I Down comes the rain cloud charged f with the positive electricity that has been given off by the earth The latter has retained a negative charge When I the thunder cloud reaches down near I enough to the earth the negative dice tricity lot the former unites suddenly with the positive charge of the latter fprjning the bolt of a terrlflcly high potentiality i It is still unknown whether the elec tile discharge passes from the cloud to the earth or vice versa It may be that It passes from both and unites in the air Instances have certainly been known of upward strokes of lightning r from the ground when the sky was clear Such strokes have killed cattleILightning certainly passes from one cloud to another for that is a matter of common observation It has been estimated that such clouds may discharge into each other at a distance otJfive miles The greatest artificial lightning yet produced by man is a few feet in length demonstrating the j immense superiority of the powers of natureFear of lightning though usually unreasoning Is by no means without any foundation In the year 1899 ac cording to the statistics collected by the weatbtr bureau 502 persona in then r r lfutoa Stairs were killed or fatally iujurel by lightning anti 820 were In jured more or less severely The Chronicle Fire Tables record 2700 fires caused by lightning In the United States In the same year the property loss occasioned thereby being 3923 B25 The weather fcuronu Is also col lecting statistics of loss to farm prop erty Including live stock In the fields by lightning so as to determine th frequency of lightning stroke and th amount of property destroyed annuals by that agency Interesting figures will no doubt result from the invests gation Statistics for 1S99 show that In that year the largest number of casualties took place during June July and August although in Pennsylvania and Illinois where the lightning did the greatest damage May was the fatal- e time to more victims December was fay though only one person was killed in February two in October three In January and four in November In one case of that year five persons were killed by a single stroke of electricity In ono case a discharge slew four In another three in two others three deaths resulted and there were soy eral instances of double fatalities The greatest number of fatalities 45 per cent according to the most recent statistics occurred in the open the next greatest number 34 percent oc curred In houses while 11 jiej cent of those struck were under tretfS at the time The smallest percentage of col lected cases about one eleventh of the total number were in barns Although these figures are not by any means to be taken as final for lightning investigation is still inexact they tend to prove that the common Idea of the safe ty of open places is erroneous Some precautions based on observa tion are recommended by meteorologists always however with the reser ration that the ways of lightning In reaching its victim are past all finding out Timid persons indoors should avoid chimneys and open windows The safest place Is probably the mid dIe of the room and according to some weather wise advisers the basement o cellar is the safest of all places They do not however consider the danger should the house be set on fire by the stroke as frequently happens Per sons caught out in a thunderstorm if unable to reach shelter should never take refuge under trees This precau tion Is one that has been Insisted upon for many ages and Is amply Justified to the ordinary mind by one look at the blasted blackened trunk of a light ning struck tree Wire fences and live stock are also good objects to avoid and If one Is on horseback it Is wise to dismount and welt for the storm to passe Stories of the freaks or pranks of the mysterious lightning abound and have been current for centuries With absolutely no apparent reason one per son or object Is struck while another a few feet away is spared Lightning strokes am uqt always fatal In fact about two out of every three persons struck recover to some degree at least The most common form of injury from ofsarms or shock ere also results of the stroke WHAT UOBTXIXO DID TO A CHUECH SPInE

miners fought and bled revealed the fact that it is somewhat of n mystery fatalitieye s a e leastprotectlon while their opponents were well protected and had the advantage In numbers Much bravery was displayed by the posse in meeting and defeating the concealed foe and It is an evident fact that the U M W are fully aware b this time that our miners are deter mined to fight in defense of thou homes and the property of their em ployer and if they succeed in gain ing their point It will be through bloodshedThe ip told on the UM W in a certain locality that when they began to organize In this count they met in an abandoned mine and were enjoying their dark and gloomy quarters when some one hinted that It a shot was fired into the mine all would be killed About that timepiece a of slate fell striking one of them and they at once bid the mine goodbye They went to a private residence to meet and some member who was of a timid disposition then made the remark how easy it would be to blow up the house and then all indoor meetings were abandoned and through uncalledfor fear they now meet In the open air If there ever existed any timidit among the St Charles miners in re gard to the U M W

the St Bernard Coal Co is now seriously ill and his friends hope for his early recovery We cant vouch for the accuracy of the statement but they do say that after the battle began at St Charles some of the U M W ran for seven or eight miles before stopping one of their leaders landing at Hannington Several of the St Bernard people are attending the Conclave in Louisville this week and they tell it on George that he went early to meet the wine and fruit car from California A small coal mine is said to have been opened up near Mortons Gap by some of the U M W It is thought they are preparing a place where their members can buy coal cheap and no longer depend partly in sulphur piles The miners of Crabtree enjoyed themselves last Saturday at the picnic given under the auspices of W F Ward of that place These men are steady and contented work ers and can afford to spend a day in pleasure occasionally Barton Criitchfleld and Ben W Robinson are among the number who are seeing the sights at

aspect by the liberals concentrating on the Isthmus It is believed they are contemplating aggressive action CortRprjucntly un easiness prevails at Panama the liberal objective which was nearly cap tured a year ago It Is not believed the rebels will molest the railroad or Interrupt traffic The recent rebel raids along the railroad amounted to bloodless raiding and the robbery of Chinese

present conditions of affairs in Hopkins county are of much interest During the past y eighteen months some 300 men out of the 2200 employes in the mines of the county ceased work because of having joined the U M W of A The places of these st men wero quickly taken by oth ers who were glad to work at the wages and under the conditions rejected The men who joined this organization have been more fV i or less supported by this order since they quit work Every ef fort has been made by the organ izers of the order to induce all the men remaining at work to join the organization but with out avail Threats of all kinds and abuse most vicious have been the portions of the working miners of the county because k they would not join the order f The miners have produced coal daily and to full capacity The I leaders of the organization hav f ing failed to take what they call f peaceful persuasion of the mines now propose to take possession of the coal properties of the Wi county by force and have as sembled not only many of the 300 members who live in the f county but have brought in men from other counties armed with guns and rifles to stop work from all mines Reliable information tells of 1000 being raised by lo cal lodges and of Ben Kissinger being sent after guns and ammu nition For three days large bodies of armed men have been assembled 7 at Nortonville waiting for or 4

today is sued an injunction prohibiting the forty pressmen employed by the W B Conkey Printing Com pany atHammond Ind who are on a strike from picketing the plantThe men who are nonunion 4 walked out Monday because one of their number had been dis charged and had been refused re instatement The firm imported pressmen from Chicago W Ij TFflffFm n CAPITAL AND LABOR RV A PHIEND OF DOTH St Louis Interstate Manufacturer President Shaffer is busy rais ing money to pay strike benefits to the men who he is trying to lead from employment He claims that he will have nil the men out of employment in a short time When he has accom plished this fact and there are none of the members of the Amalgamated Association at work then from what source does President Shaffer expect to get his strike benefits If all of the men quit if there are no wages being paid to them who will pay to President Shaffer and his committee the money to sup port the strikers If the men whom President Shaffer is trying to induce to quit work have saved a small bank account is that bank account of sufficient magnitude to support their families while the wageearners Are idle and at the same time to pay strike benefits to support men who are not so fortunateWill men who have been fortunate and who have bank accounts be willing to draw upon their savings of years to conduct a strike when all engaged in their line of business are idle If this be true how long will the savings of these men last when drawn upon so heavily After the savings of these men have been expended at the rate of not less than50000 a day in strike benefits then from what source does President Shaffer expect to draw funds for strike benefits Does he expect the strike to end in 80 60 or 90 days or does he propose to continue the strike if it lasts a year If he succeeds in his under taking and calls all of the Amal gamated Association out of work and then pays to each one the pitiable sum of 100 a day it means 64000 a day in strike benefits alone That means for one month 192000000 for 90 days it will mean 576000000 and for one year 2304000000 In the meantime there are other expenses to be undertaken Men will have to be armed in order to keep nonunion men from going to work They will have to have dynamite powder and cartridges They cannot be kept in line unless they are tanked up on whisky and the bill must be paid But far more important than nllof these is another question and a serious one that Will confront and ul timately defeat the conflict now going on The very day President Shaffer and his officers and agitators find there is no more money to be drawn from the workmen that day they will go into other employment I They are patriotic men but they are also business men and when they can no longer be paid their salaries and expenses they mean to take care of number one as selfpreserva tion is the first law of nature It may sound a little harsh to inject into this line of thought the purchase of arms and ammu nition as well as dynamite but these trifles are coincident with a strike of an aggressive nature Without these trifles men would soon seek employment m the idle factories or in tile idle mines If the men themselves who are striking felt that it was safe to do so in many instances they would return to work but they fear these trifles that are coinci dent with strikes although they assert positively that the strikers do not resort to such methods It is however peculiarly a fact that wherever strikes arise vio hence follows Granting for the sake of argument and cheerfully granting for all the truth there may be in it that the claims of the strikers are true that they do not commit these degrada tions yet it is always found wherever a strike is in progress the vicious characters outside of unions seek to use these methods to prejudice the public against the strikers It is seldom found that these same vicious charac ters use dynamite shoot into residences beat up men who are seeking employment andstrip women on the street unless a strike is in progress These peculiar significant in stances that grow out of a strike much to the disgust of the strik ers it is told are the mean fea tures that are lessening the force of strikes and taking from the strikers the popular sympathy that would and does and always will side with labor seeking to advance its interest either in an increase of wages or the shortening of hours of service There was a time when the majority of the people believed in the claim of organized labor and their policy to avoid violence in the strike but that veil thin as it is to the penetrating eye has been lifted until a blinded eye sees from a long list of evidence that such violence seldom exists when a strike is not in progress and the two are so closely related as to actualities that their kinship at last cannot be denied True it is that many of the localauthorities of government municipal county state and na tion are in sympathy with the movement of strikers True it is the officers that have been selected for the discharge of such duties are covards not necessarily physically but mor ally and they fear tp antagonize a voting body of organized labor lest at the next election they will be defeated They are play ing the same identical game with the strikers that the strikers are playing with the people That is they pretend to be doing their full duty as good citizens when in reality they are aiding in crimes that are being perpetrated Some day the American people those men who love government in order those men who believe in flying the flag of this country will march under that flag and tear down the ensign of anarchy that now floats in many places as the flag of liberty The American people will per emptorily refuse to allow foreigners to control this country They willmost positively decline to allow men to be imported from the countries of infamy and shame from the haunts of ig norance and vice that are fester ing the old world into a bodv of corruption and then when here given liberty they claim and in stitute such proceedings The majority of the men who are engaged in violent work if they had the just deserts for crimes committed here and else where would either be in the prison of this country or the country from which they came They have no respect for order no love for character are desti tute of principle and are often used as implements or tools of designing men who propose to further their own interest at the expense of the country The day when the walking del egate when the labor leader the anarchy agitator can call from factory after factory the American workingman is past They must depend upon the most ig norant classes of the people to do their bidding and to exercise their authority It is most abso lutely significant as a matter of fact that whenever a charge has been made in the name of liberty the chargers were foreigners many of whom do not speak the language of this country who do not know there is such a docu ment as the Declaration of Inde DOCTORS say Consumption canbe cured Nature alone wontdo It Itneeds help Doctors say Scotts Emulsion is the best help But

Comment for Rev S II Doric Tona Spiritual acquaintanceJob zxll 121yThe three friends of Job the patriarch Ellpbaz Blldnd and Zo pharwent upon the false assumption that the afflictions of Job had cone upon him as a result of some grievous sin against God This was the Jewish conception of affliction It was ex pressed In their question to Christ Who did sin that this man was born blind Going on this assumption they appealed to Job to acknowledge his sin to repent of It and to return unto God and assured him 6t Gods forgiveness and favor 0Thls is the spirit of the appeal of Ellpbaz in the topical reference lIe says to Job Ac quaint now thyself with Illm with God and shows him how to acquaint himself with God and the results of doing so The exhortation of Ellphaz to Job to acquaint himself with God is one that may be applied to us all The man who docs not know God should certainly seek His acquaintance Those who know God best do not know Him so well but what they could become bettor acquainted with Him God is our Father and children should learn to know rind to love their parents God Is our friend and the beauty and bless ing of friendship lie In acquaintanceship To know a true friend Is to make his friendship valuable and appreci able Acquaintance with God Includes acquaintance with all that Is Gods It embraces all that Is contained in the spiritual realm of life and may be 4 looked upon as spiritual acquaintance Looking upon Job as a sinner sepa rated from God by sin Ellphaz sets forth how such a one may have ac quaintance with God 1 Gods law must be received and laid up in the heart Receive I pray thee the law from Ills mouth and lay up His words in thy heart No one can know God without accepting and applying His revelation of Himself 2 Sin must be repented of and return made to God If thou wilt return to the Almighty thou Shalt be built up Tho sin that makes acquaintance with God impossi srble must be repented of The sinner must turn from sin unto God 3 To day we know God best through His Son Jesus Christ through Him we gain an acquaintance that can be ob t tamed In no other way The benefits of spiritual acquaintance ore many Ellphaz suggests two peace and prosperity Acquaint now thyself with IIIm and be at peace thereby good shall come unto thee Acquaintance with God brings peace peace with oneself peace with thd world and peace with God Himself Prosperity follows peace for when at pence with God we are always content and contentment Is the best kind otIprosperity TIll rnATnn MEETINO Have a voluntary discussion cf the i topic BIBLE HEADINGS

opportunities to serve them for loves svoet sake and his highest sat isfaction will be to prove himself really uloveIt must be right to give our hearts best to these but there are the unlovely and the unfriendly the lonely and desolate who are really starving though they may not know It for the sunshine of some ones compassion some ones pitying love What right have we who are so rich in friends to deny them this solace The Christian name Is no ours If we are satisfied to love those wlio love us to serve those who minister to us Selfishness Is our master and not the Saviour who has loved us with a perfect love and whom f we have promised to love and serve Universalist Leader Sympathy Sympathy is a form of Christian service It Is not a favor granted by one and received by another It is that action by which one life enters Into an others life takes up a portion of the burden shares the Joy or success becomes for the time being n part of that life and contributes to It some of its own

for development by companionship gives new courage find fresh 4 ability for advance when the assisting presence Is withdrawn Independent Stick to Your Tasks It Is hard to work when the body Is sick or weak and harder still when the 1 mind Is dejected and depressed But the fact nevertheless remains that a great deal of the best work In tho world has been done by persons In poor health or In grievous mental distress To quit your tasks simply because you do not feel like keeping at them Is sheer folly Whatever your condition may be the only right and wise course Is to discharge all your duties as well as you can leaving the consequences to God You will often be surprised to discover that your capacities are really x far greater than you had supposed Nashville Christian Advocate Somo Gift of
