size tMuch Bible Selling and Bible Rea are Done Lexington One of the stock arguments of the re ligionists is the alleged millions of Bi bles that are being printed and sold I am certain that a great many lies are being told about religious ple and so I have gone todayAug to the only two book stores city to ask them about the sales of Bi two book sellers here are Morton Co and Wm Purnell I have been sellin Mrs BesantsLa of Population just sixtythree days an I have sold 443 copies of it or a little over seven copies a day Sundays and all I never asked human being to postIofficemy me to change my advertisement of it I have never in print advised anybody to read the book nor do I recall that I have- done so orally and I never say anything about it to anybody unless they first mention it to me These two Lexington book stores are in a city of 30000 inhabitants and this city has a college that calls itself in large letters cut i j stone over its main entrance The College of the Bible There are around this city in this very wealthy couutry about a dozen nice towns that have no book stores that amount to anything and Lexingtou pretty much sells the books for this Blue Grass Region that contains this dozen towns I went to these two book stores in Lexington and asked them how many Bibles they were Rolling and some other questions about the sales of Bibles I went to them at m Neither of them had sold a Bible that day and each ofthem had sold one the day before a Kentucky court day when there was a large crowd in town Each of them said they thought they sold an average of from three to five Bibles a week so that the two together sell in a week only one more Bible than Populationsional booksellers and I am not Annie Besant is an infidel These two book firms said that the large majority of Bibles were sold to school children and Sunday Schools collegeherestudents many of them were cheap Bi bles that were cut up and used in lec tures Both of the dealers said that excepting the sales just mel1tionedmost of the Bibles were sold to old women and that but few of them were sold to farmersI not now recall a single instance in life except one when I have seen readingfromI refer was when Judge Morton read from the ad chapter of Matthew in de fending me when I was prosecuted for blasphemy The Judge seemed to be pretty familiar with the New Testament- as far as to the end of the second chap ter in it the first one being made up of hard Jew names My office is in the Printery building There are four stories in it filled with editors and reporters and printers and typesetters There is not a Bible in house nor a man to whom I can re fer to tell me anything in the Bible But you can get Tom Age of Reas on and Bob Ingersolls lectures and Charley Moores Rational View here I never saw a Bible in any printing fice in this town There is no Bible in the Court House or the City Hall and I never saw one in the Lexington City Li brary I never saw a Bible in any hotel in this town and I board in one Some few of the railroad cars have in them little racks that have on them the letters A Sfor American Bible Society but I have not seen a Bible in one for years I never saw a book seller on a train have a Bible for sale- I think it is a safe estimate to that in the United States ten thousand times as much time is to reading news papers as to reading Bibles I have lately read Talmages account of how the people rushed to get the new translation of the New Testament that was made at great expense some years since I have never seen one of those Testaments do not there is one m either of the Lexington book stores or that there are six in Lexington or that there is one here that does not be preacherI there are five men in the city of Lexington who have read the Bible through in live years Excepting preachers I do not believe there are fifty in Lexington who ever read the Bible through or that there are ten peo pIe in this town who have ever read through in the same length ot time that they would take to read the same amount of ordinarily interesting profane exceptingtown who are years old who can call the names of all the books of the Bible I do not believe that there are one huu dred people in this town who know the 151stPsalmwho read this article that I am now writ ing 500 will sometime in consequence of this article get a Bible to read the 151st Psalm So far as I can judge the Bible is the producQand most of the reading of it is done by infidels or people inclined that wayIt tIsHolmes an Atheist thatfgreat crimes that are done by preachers and prominent Christians it is a fact that they rarely if ever say of any crimi nal that he an infidel- I am anxious to information on this Point and a friend has called my at the case of H H Holmes nox figuring in the and one o greatest criminals known to our country correspondent of the Cincinnati En quirer says of Holmes The conspirator says he belongs to no religious nation that he is an atheist and an ad mirer of both Ingersoll and Tom Paine But in the same account in which this imputedtothat he can not be an atheist CigrandHolmesgone to heaven and in speaking of Gertrude Conner he is represented as saying God only knows where she is Nine years ago Holmes was a member AeHolmes may be an atheist but tha account that does not indicate it Lexington Colonels and

ntelligentjury there are not six plain misters in the whole State of Kentucky W J Brann of the Iconoclast exchangingBrann at Waco Texas I have just now finished a careful reading of his is sue for August and am ready to speak my piece about him languageheme and as a master of the language he stands only second to Ingersoll a fault common to them both being that they use more words than are are necessary to express their ideas and in the case Brann writing is frequently a diar rhea of words and constipation of ideas strikinginstancesnout that I have ever seen In all my experience in reading I have never found such an of waste of ink and paper to express brilliant diction splendidlookinggantly gotten up that had no sense in them from beginning to end but they stylethattheir editors while the Iconoclast is a moral abortion almost absolutely void of common sense but dished out as I have sometimes in my life seen poor grub on an elegant silver service- I do not know anything of Brann oth er than through his magazine but I know enough of the human anatomy and physiology to know that he a man who is or addicted to liquor or tobacco or both until his deranged stomach has damaged his brain and his ideas and thus tarn ished are given out to the world made bythecouched If this opinion of Mr Branu is not correct or if he is not the unfort unate victim of inheritance then his is a remarkable effect without a cause if such a thing be conceivable- He is a devout believer in religion and delights to say hard things against infi dels and Prohibitionists and carries in his columns six advertisenients of sa loons and breweries and whisky and his Pulpitofall liquor beinterested iu keeping up a to in temperance work while apologizing and fending the liquor business- I give herewith two samples of his style one about dancing and one about the existence of a deity or Deity if we use the big Everybody appreciates the absurdity of the conventional preachers harangues about young people dancing while the livingbycountry are in his fold but for all that everybody of any sense knows that the dance is demoralizing But the general tendency of the long article from which I take this extract is to en courage dancingIHis remarks about the existence of a God have not even the appearance ofI argument about them butjust like the commonest specimen bigot he relies upon bold assertion for the fect of his statements because he know- that the great ignorant and bigoted masses of the people agree with him anyway and that it is not necessary to gain support by any attempt at ar gument while such an attempt might even to their commonplace understand ings betray the fact that there is no ev idence of that kind Below are the samples from the Icon of these antidancing dominies make uncompromising war upon the so called evil in all its forms from the stately minuet to the Irish jig from the MidwayPlaisanceMethodist campmeeting but the latest preacher to against the ball room is uot quite so bigoted as his cru thefhas been holding forth on the subject in the Central Christian Church in that city and some of his pious observations be worth attention by this the isterial organ of Texas We approach him with caution however for by what ever name they are knownwhether as Campbellitestheization are great sputers and relish nothing so much as an interminable de

daughters of men the world millenniumtproved of punch ifthe spirits were left out be can tolerate dancing if each sex will but indulge in terpsichorean exer cise by itself He has ascertained in some mysterious manner which he does not divulge that when Miriam the sis ter of Moses tripped the light fantastic patenthealthJesse indulged in the stagdance That to most people as about unsatisfactory as

when he came to me in a very gentlemanly and business like manner and said to me that he would be glad to show me a wire fence for which he was agent I was at the time and am now making wire fence on my own farm and I told him I would be glad to go with him and see some that he was making two miles from town I regard the making of wire fence one of the most important of farming indus the hour came

crimes that the newspapers of preachers and of the ca befalling churches and religious bodies were committed by infidels and to infidel lecture rooms and organizations the and the ligious newspaper would be filled with articles to that it showed the wrath of Goa against infidelity- I just now happened to pick up a CourierJournal of August jth and three of the prominent news items on the first page are headed as follows Lightnings CrashMany Hurt at Church The ac count states that Rev Dr Bowman hed just pronounced the benediction at the morning service when the bolt struck the belfry etc and the wife of the Rev Dr is one of the fourteen that were terribly injured This immediate ly followed the petition of the Rev Dr that God would bless his congregation and the Doctor had just been teachin these people that whatever they asked in the name of Jesus should be given Bible says if ask God to give you bread he not give you a stone and if you ask for a fish he will not give a serpent but right here just as plain as you can see anything you see that you can ask God to give you a blessing and he gives you a streak of lightning What fools these mortals beIf that streak of lightning had struck one of Bob just as Bob had gotten off one of his best jokes on old Moses Lexington would have sent for Mills and a thousand people would have the church on the strength of the wonderful testimony that God would defeud his religion The next item is headed Blood Shed for Religion Three Burned Alive and the next one is Blood on the Church Step Double Murder at the Sanctuary are on that page of the Courier Journal 28 news item that have heads to them and a column of items without heads The column closes with the words Bloody Sunday and there are then 18 items the heads of which are

the day devoted to preaching the Christian religion and to reading out of the Bible how that relig ion makes Peace on earth and good will among men Want Negroes on the Police Force In Lexington The Democrats are charging against the Republicans that the latter want Negroes on police force in Lexington and the Republicans are denying the charge- I Iwant some Negroes on the police force in Lexington and for the follotv ing reasons The Negroes are just as truly as the white people citizens of this country and therefore no discrimination should be made against them in the bestow ment of offices the duties of which they are competent to fill or in any other civil advantage- To a proper share of the offices is calculated to encourage them and to make good citizens of them while to refuse to do this has the opposite ten is a special demand for some Negro policemen white men cannot have access to Negro criminals i so as to detect and identify them as black men can do If some of our best Negroes were made r policemen they would take great pride great pains in the discharge r duties so as to encourage the white people thus to favor them Certainly the Government can have Negro carriers that have continually to be as sociated with the best people of our community there is no reason why our city not have Negro policemen who would principally have to our worst class a t t A
