the Town A COMMERCIAL CLUB NEEDED Now that the new council is duly in stalled what are they going to do Are they going to bring manufacturing works and business to town 5 Are they going to give us water works electric lights better streets etc These and other questions aro asked of us every day and in order to make a general answer we will resort to the medium of the NEWS In the first place can the council of Itself do everything toward bringing about better times and better everything else without the help ot the citizens throughout the city To be sure they can give us water lights and streets but how about the business No law or or dinance will of itself make business It takes enterprise solicitations money exemption from taxes and various other inducements which the citizens can and should having the welfare of the city at heart give Now it seems to us that we should call a meeting of the progressive citizens and organize A commercial club and appoint committees to correspond with capitalists ormanufacturers in regard to locating here We are satisfied that anything that the council can do it will take pleasure in doing It is the intention ot the council to advertise the sale of the franchise for waterworks and electric lights at its next meeting and to insist on the immediate beginning of construction We must all take into consideration tho condition of the city treasury which was almost empty at the beginning of their term of office and the streets require so much work that it will keep them humping for some time to get them In shape Consequently we must not expect much financial help from them for awhile at least But wo can safely say that all the concessions and induce ments which they can offer will be glad ly given We would be pleased to hear expres sions from any one in tho next issue of this paper on the same line- PBOORSa1vE CITIZEN Unduly Sensitive These biscuits are rather heavy 111s wife burst into tears Then you do not worship me any more

WEDNESDAY JANUARY 24 1900 RAILROADS AND AGRICULTURE I These Two Vocations Are Closely Related And Should Preserve A Harmonious Connection THE PRODUCERS AND THE DISTRIBUTORS BY J B KILJKBIIKW A U PH D IN TOR BODTIIKRK FABJ1 MAGAZINE No two vocations of human concern are more closely related than those of ago riculture and railroad transportation They are the correlatives of one another Agriculture is the basis of all other ic dustriee because mankind could not sub sit without it It grows the food andI supplies the textiles to feed and clothe the civilized world Railroads are the distributors of agricultural productsthe consort indeed of agriculture and the great territorial arteries of commerce These two of the greatest factors of hu man necessity and human activity bear the same relation to each other that the stomach does to the limbs that the water does to the ship the soil to vegetation the light of the moon and stars to the beauty and brightness of the night Railroads have advanced agriculture more than all other Agencies combined They haye multiplied production almost be yond calculation Wherever they have been built they have dethroned famine and installed plentiousness Through their instrumentality and efficiency more has been added to the wealth of the world in the past halfcentury than through all the vast ages They are also the beat of educators They are difluslng knowledge in a broad and broadening stream throughout the world Build a rail road into a most benighted region where the people are lawless and Ignorant rude and savage brutal and vicious and in a few years industry and energy will estab lish trade schools will be opened and Intelligence will light up the faces of the inhabitantsIn territory of the United States there are more than 1000000 square miles that have been made habitable only by the construction of railway lines There are 1700000 persons that have found employment in agriculture in the wide and treeless plains of America In 1850 throughout the whole region now organized into eighteen States and Ter ritories there were lees thau 12000 farms or ranches In 1890 these had been Increased to 072000 The farms were then confined to the watercourses and to ocean lines Now they are scattered throughout this vast region In 1850 there was not a single farm in cultivation in the territory now embraced in North and outh Dakota Nebraska Kansas Oklahoma Arizona Montana Wyom ing Colorado Idaho and Washington and but 157 In Minnesota and 87S in the whole of California Without railroads this region would yet be a desert land These railway lines enabled hundreds of thousands of homes to be bought or entered by the homeless The produc tion of wheat since the opening of thebe desert lands has Increased sevenfold while the population of the country has increased only three times We are now able to export 225000000 bushels of wheat which is more than twice as much as we produced in 1850 In the mean time the production of corn has increased from 600000000 bushels to over 2000000000This t of the railroads has made c the United States the largest grain and l meat producer in the world as well as I the largest exporter It has become lit I erally the granary of the world and leads all nations in wealth and in the intelli I gence of its citizenshipIl Railroads have a double reason for fosE I tering all kinds of indubtries along theirs line and especially are they interested in fostering agriculture It gives freight I and it induces immigration Agriculture has more to Rain from their successful

other one vocation It is the ardent andI the compelling desire of railroads to build up and establish on a firm foun dation every branch of husbandry thatl can be made vrofitable to the tillers off the soil So intense is the interest in thisI direction manifested by some of the best railroads that monthly crop reports areI sent to their general offices and intelli gent men are paid to do this work in an intelligent manner There will always be grumblers grumblers in every condition of life farmers grumble railroad men grumble laborers grumble professional men grumble and we all grumble at times but observation and experience show that the railroad managers are as Justly free from criticism for nonperformance of duty as any other class They make free contributions to almost everything not even excepting churches schools and the demands of charity They come to the relief of every public gathering by giving reduced rates They are always publicspirited They can no more af ford to break down and ruin a profitable industry on their lines than a farmer can afford to cripple his horse To do so will impair their carrying capacity To increase this and the products to be car ned are the principal aims of the wise managers of railroads To destroy the prosperity of the farmers the manufac turers tha miners or any other class whose business increases the quantity of freight or the number of passengers is like tearing down the edifice of their own prosperity The problem thatalways confronts a good railroad manager is how beet to build up the prosperity of the country through which his railroad passes and at the same time to keep his line and equipment up to a high standard and pay a reasonable dividend to his stockholders The lostmentioned is the last provided for If he discharges his duty to his company he must give all- posaib1eencouragement to building up of new industries He must stimulate enterprise and development lie must induce immigration Neither of these things can be done if he attempts by ex tortionate freight rates and passenger charges to oppress or break down the prosperous institutions on his road Such a course would be suicidal and no stock holder in any railroad company would sustain a board of directors that would be governed by such a narrow policy Freights are being reduced all oyer the United States and this reduction comes as the carrying capacity of roads Is increased by the use of larger cars and heavier engines The ratts on ordinary freight now are not onehalf as great as they were twentyfive years ago In this gradual reduction the farmers come in for their full share of the benefits They should give every encouragement to the railroads to make such improvements as will justify them in lowering the freight tariffsUnthinking men are sometimes made to believe that railroad managers levy contributions upon the country to pay urge dividends on watered stock This may haye been true in some instances but do the farmers ever reflect that Investments in the building of railroads have also watered the prices of their ands much more than they have the stock of the railroads If it is true that railroads make dividends on watered do not the farmers in those regions where railroads are built enjoy cheaper freights than they did by wagon carriage 7 Is it not true that their landed property has been increased in value by- eason of the investments made in build ing these railroads to which they contribute nothing The stockholders of the railroads take the risk and divide theI profits with the farmers by increasing the prices of their lands and products open- Ing new market and reducing the ex pense of taking farm products to market We often hear the cry that railroads are monopolies and that they crush outIeverything that opposes them If the railroads are monopolies how does it happen that their stock is found for sale I in every brokers office especially in theI larger cities If the railroads are making so much money why do not thejj farmers buy some of the stock and participate in the profits 7 Who Is to hinder them The very fact that these dissatis ed persons do not buy stock in railroad companies is proof positive that they do not believe what they say when they speak ot railroads as grasping monopo lies The truth is that prosperous farm l ers make prosperous railroads and pros perous railroads aid farmers ot every lass and condition Railroads equalize prices so that those remote from mar t kets enjoy nearly the same advantages c s those who live near A slight Increase I in production will pay the cost of getting J o market t As the soils of the country are depleted t ear by year by the growing of crops Its necessary to restore them by the In- reased c use of fertilizers

Illustrated book It will tell them things they ought to know Tax DUDnnD arowvon coAIita 0eI pLates Is an advantage which the farmersI of the South enjoy in a greater measure than the farmers of the North The rail roads help the farmers to prosperity by distributing thousands of tons of ferti lizcrsat low rates where they distributed one ton thirty years ago The farmers and the railroads are alike benefited by the increasing use of fertilizers for they multiply production In this they are full partners in the resulting profits Railroads must be kept up to high state of efficiency otherwise they are a poor dependence for carrying crops to market The largest part of their revenue must be expended for this purpose No country or section can prosper with badly equippeed railroads for they compel high rates increase the dangers of travel and make the country undesirable to live in Oppress the railroads so that they can not keep up the equipment and you op press yourselves and every other indus trial interest for they are all more or less dependent upon the efficiency of trans portationMuch prejudice has been instilled by politicians into the minds of the farmers against corporations Believing that such animosities would be popular they have advocated thtm to obtain official positions This Is unfortunate for the South has been the loser and it has been kept behind in its progress by reason of the prevalence of these unnatural preju dices If there should be any two allies more closely united than any others they should be the railroads and the farmers They are component parts of the same great industrial machine The largest proportions ot freights received by the railroads are furnished by the farmers The farmers largest profits come from being able to command many markets by means of tbe railroads They should work together in harmony Nothing should be done by one side or the other that has the least appearance of injustice The prejudice entertained against all corporations by certain classes in the South has done much in creating the bad feeling which exists against railroads We live in an age of corporations They are the methods of progress adopted by the business world in the latter part of the nine teenth century- A farmer using the old reap hook and threshing floor and flail for saving his wheat cannot compete with one using the sell binder and steam threasher nor can a manufacturing establishment run by in dividuals compete with one run under corporate powers The last has better credit is organized for a permanency and is not dissolved by the reason of the death of aay stockholder The future profccerity of the South depends upon the strength of combined capital and combined capital cannot be controlled except through legalized corporations Corporations have become indispen TheyIhim to compete with the large capital of rich men A thousand poor men putting in 100 each will provide capital great enough to build and equip a large manufacturing plant Morever such an ee tabllahment would probably give perma nent employment to themselves and their children It would increase the number of workers in the community and in so doing would add largely to its wealth and give good markets for the farmers produce There should be no prejudice existing against the building up of manufacturing enterprises run by corporate powers Such powers are the life of every progressive community Every farmer would be benefited by having stock in some manufacturing en terprise The prejudice oi our people in this regard seems to be confined to corporations in our own midst while hundreds of millions of dollars go out every year from the South into the lap of the cor porattons of other States Why not nurse our prejudice against corporations outside ot our own section to which we pay so much money and get no incidental benefits Why not en courage those in our own midst by our patronage and by the liberality of our laws induce others to come Our preju dice against corporations in the South cannot nurt foreign corporations but it may prevent us from enjoying some of the benefits resulting from the presence of home corporations Let us dismiss all this provincialism and foolishness from our minds Let us adopt the sys tern of progress now in operation throughout all progressive communities Let us treat corporations as we treat individuals tax them individuals and do not single them out by special tax laws s though they were enemies to the Corn monwealth or a foe to mankind Those d J l States that are making the most rapid pr gross are precisely those that have the greatest number of corporations The industrial moyement of tho South relies and must rely upon the farmers and the railroads for its success Lot us nourish this movement let us protect it by our laws encourage it by our sym path and support it by our patronage and our children will applaud the wit dom of our action QUARTERLY

OUTLOOK A T FJIAXKFOH TilE NEWS dropped in on the Legisla ture hut week and took a look at that august body of much abused but Intelll gent fairminded conscientious law makers We are glad we bad the pleas ure of this visit Our confidence es teem and respect bas been raised and we feel assured that much good will come out of tills congregation of the states representatives yet It is our humble opinion that they are very much abused simply because it has become a habit and a privilege of all the people more especially the newspapers to abuse them They take abuse so gracefully that every fellow who can write or speak thinks it his duty and high privilege to pounce upon them because it is fashion ableWe admit that these men are not per feetthey are only human like the bal ance of usand are liable to make mis takes But we take it from seeing them and I earing them discuss questions that theylntend to do the right thing as near ly as they can We noticed a spirit of rising above party and a desire to do right regardless of the wouldbe bosses There is a large element of this class of men and we take it as a good omen for the state When men can rise above party for their coun trys sake it means something There are some hot headed fellows up there belonging to both parties They would create a revolution rather than give up to the other fellows but over and against these is a good sure majority of men who stand for the right for law and order and who will see that justice law and order prevail The contest election cases will be set tied right The men who are entitled to offices will get them therell be no revo lution bloodshed or riot We have this much faith in the good men wno seem to be in evidence there- KENTUCKYS SHAME The right thinking and law abiding men of Kentucky have been made to blush for shame at the paragraphs which have appeared and are still appearing in the papers from other states in regard to our latest tragedy And the truth of the accusations makes the sting the keener Is not this fierce courage this spirit of revenge this nursing of wrongs and this wreaking of vengeance a relic of barbar ous days There is a spirit which pervades the south and which is not con fined to Kentucky which makes it a lawfulnay almost a heroic action to wipe out ones wrongs In blood Ibe shame of Kentucky tocay is the acquiescence in this spirit A ruffian commits a crime for which he should hang and a mob burns him at the stake a man calls another a liar and hence forth his life is in jeopardy and public sentiment acquiesces In the result r Life is valued too lightly In Kentucky and there will be no checking the bloody stream that flows in the south until re spect for the law Is Inculcated until the lesson is learned that no man or body of men has the right to take private vengeance and that threats against life as well as those against property or liberty are insults to the right of law with which the law should deal quickly and rigidly Let the press and the pulpit unite In a crusade against the evils of intemperance and the spirit of vengeance and may the day soon come when this proud old commonwealth will be free from the bondage of selfseeking j and revengeful men who have regard for neither law nor God THE welfare of the farmer and that of the railroad are as inseparably connected as the Siamese twins The advantage of one is the advantage of the other and vice versa If any bad feeling bas ex feted between these two greatest voca tions let it cease for the hope of pros perity for the future greatly depends on their harmonious relation In another column we print a dissertation on this subject that we trust will be read and deeply pondered HAVE you received notice in regard to your subscription If you have will you kindly respond It is almost a matter of impossibility to run a paper without money And to run a good one it takes Iota of it We ask those who are in ar rears to please give the matter their at tention We need every dollar that Is due us to keep our business running i M IT has been suggested to the NEWS that the greatett present need of this state II- a is new womans organization to be called the Kentncky Womans AnilPistol Association The object of the society would be the enforcement of tle laws against the carrying of concealed weap one In view of recent events it rather appeals to the writer who would suggest that n Juvenile department be added tto the society to discourage children in us ing as playthings toy pistols and little RUBE especially unloaded ones When this association becomes fully organized it baa the promise of a generous donation from a Missouri man now a resident of Kentucky whose business calls him to Frankfort frequently TilE New York Sun says and we be- lIeve it that it is no more tbe natural province of banks to issue circulating notes than it is for them to run the post office maintain an army or a navy or exercise any other government power That they have been allowea to do it in past years is no reason why they should be allowed to do it forever The way to provide the sound stable and unim peachable currency tbat is desired is to reserve for the government the sole power to put the stamp of money on metal or on paper A GREAT work is lbeing done by the Kentucky Childrens Heine Committee This institution Iit nonsectarian ant is devoted to the interests of the destitute and deserted children not eligible to other homes It is a humane society for children Mr W L Stewart and Mr George Sehon who spoke in its

would keep silent when ho knew the facts would bo guilty of unspeak ablo cowardlco and disloyalty to his Lord As to your threat of withdrawal of support sir do you suppose I would be In the ministry It I were afraid of tho rich men In my congregation It bows that you are not yet acquainted with me It would not hurt you to know me bettor All the time Philip was talking his manner was that of dignified Indlgna thou Ills auger was never coarse or vulgar But when he was roused as he was now he spoke with a total dis regard for all coming consequences For the time being he felt as perhaps tnc of the old Hebrew prophets used to tool when tho flame of Inspired wrath burned up In the soul of the messenger if God The man who sat opposite was com pciifil to keep silent until Philip had said what he had to say It was Im possible for him to Interrupt Also it was out of the question that a man like Mr Winter should understand a nature like that of Philip Strong lie was white to the lips with passion and so excited that his hinds trembled and his voice shook as he replied to Philip You shall answer for these Insults sir I withdraw my church pledge and you wlH see whether the business men in the church will sustain such preach ing And Mr Winter flung himself out of the study and down stairs forgetting to tike his hat which he bad carried up with him Philip caught It up and went down stairs with It reaching him just as he was going out of the front door He said simply You forgot your hat sir Mr Winter took It without a word and went out BlaJimIng the door hard behind him Philip turned around and there stood his wife Her face was very anxious Tell me all about it Philip she said Sunday evening they had talked over the fact of Mr Winters walking You shall answer fur Ulcer insults sir out of tho church during the service and hind anticipated some trouble Philip related the facts of Mr Winters visit telling his wife souse things the inlll owner had wild What did you say Philip to make him so angry Did you give him a piece of your mind- I 7 gave him the whole of it replied Pliillp somewhat grimly at least allot it on that particular subject that he could stand Oh dearl It seems too bad to have this trouble come so soon What will Mr Winter do Ho Is very wealthy and Influential Do you think are you sure that in this matter you have done Just right Just for the best Philip It Is going to bo very unpleasant for youWell Sarah 1 would not do differently from what 1 have done What have I done I have simply preached Gods truth ns I plainly see It to my church stud It 1 do not do that what buslucKS have Iln the ministry at all I regret tills personal encounter with Mr Winter but I dont see how I could avoid It Did you lose your temper NoThere was some very loud talking I could hear it away in the kitchen Well you know Sarah tho more In dignant I get tho less inclined I feel to holler It was Mr Winter you heard lie was very much excited when ho came and nothing that I could consci entiously say would have made any difference with him Did you nsk him to pray over tho matter with you No I do not think ho was in a pray- Ing mood Were your Philip hesitated a moment and then replied seriously Yes I truly believe I was tbat Is I should not have been ashamed at any part of tho interview to put myself Into loving communion with my Heavenly Father Mrs Strong still looked disturbed and anxious Bho was going over Inter mind tho probable result of Mr Winters antagonism to tho minister It looked to her like a very serious thing Philip was Inclined to treat the affair wIth a calm oullosoDhr bound i on tho knowledge that his conscience was clear of all fault In the matter What do you suppose Mr Winter will do Mrs Strong asked Ho threatened to withdraw hs financial support and said other paying members would do the same Do you think they will I dont know I shouldnt wonder 1tr they do- What will you do then It will be dreadful to have a disturbance In the church of this kind Philip It will ruin your prospects here You will not be able to work under all that fric tionAnd tho ministers wife suddenly broke down and had a good cry whll Philip comforted her first by saying two or three funny things and second ly by asserting with a positive cheerfulness which was peculiar to him when he was hard pressed that even It tho church withdrew all support ho Philip could probably get n Job somewhere on a railroad or In a hotel where there was always a demand for porters who could walk up several flights of stairs with a good sized trunkSometimes I almost think I missed my calling said Philip purpoacly talking about himself in order to make his wife come to the defense I ought to have been a locomotive fireman The Idea Philip Strong I At man who has the gift of reaching people with preaching the way you dot The way I reach Mr Winter for exampleYes said his wife the way you reach him Why the very fact that you made such a man angry Is pretty good proof that you reached him cucli men are not touched by any ordi nary preaching So you really think I have a little gift at preaching asked Philip slyly A llttlo gift It Is a great deal more than a little Philip Arent you a little prejudiced Sa rah No sir I am the severest critic you ever have in the congregation If you only knew how nervous you sometimes make mel When you get started on some exciting passage and make n ges turo that would throw a stone Imago Into a fit and then begin to speak of something In a different way like an other person and the first I know I am caught up and hurJi1ll Into tho subject nnd forgot all aboutyonIThank you Philip What for asked his wife laugh- Ing Tor forgetting you- I would rather bo forgotten by you than remembered by any one else re plied Philip gallantly And you are such a delightful little flatterer that I feel courage for anything that may happenIts not flattery Its truth Philip I do believe In you and your work and I am only anxious that you should suc coed here I cant bear to think of trouble lu the church It would almost kill mo to go through such times as we sometimes read about Wo must leave results to God I am sure wo arc not responsible for more than our utmost doing and living of necessary truth Philip spoko cour ngeouslyThen you dont feel disheartened by this mornings work No I dont know that I do Im very sensitive and I feel hurt at Mr Winters threat of withdrawing his support but I dont feel disheartened for the work Why should I Am I not doing my best I believe you arc Only dear Phil- Ip bo wise Do not try to reform everything In a week or expect people to grow their wings before they havo started even plnfcathcrs It Isnt nat uralWell I wont replied Philip with a laugh netter trim your wings Sa rah theyre dragging on the floor Ho hunted up his hat which was ono of tho things Philip could never find twice In tho same place kissed his wife and went out to make tho visit at tIle mill which he was getting ready to make when Mr Winter called To his surprise when ho went down through tho business part of tho town ho discovered that lila sermon of Sun day had roused almost every one Pee plo were talking about it on tho street an almost unheard of thing In Milton When tho evening paper came out it described In sensational para graphs tho Rev Mr Strongs attack on the wealthy sinners of his own church and went on to say that the church was very much wrought up over tho sermon and would probably mako It uncomfortable for tho reverend gentle man Philip wondered as bo read at tho unusual stir made because a preacher of Christ had denounced an undoubted evil Is It then ho asked himself such a remarkable piece of news that a min- Ister of tho gospel has preached from his own pulpit against what is without question an unChristian use of property What Is tho meaning of tho church In society unless it is Just that Is it possible that tho public is so little ac customed to hear anything on this subject that when they do hear it it is in tho nature of sensational news Ho pondered over theso questions aa t A subtly but rapidly went along with rJ I l OArv his work Ho was conscious as the days went on that trouble was brewing for him This hurt him in a way hard to explain but his sensitive spirit felt the cut like a lash on a sore place When Sunday came bo went Into his pulpit anti faced the largest audience ho had yet seen In Calvary church As Is often the case people who had heart of his previous sermon on Sunday thought he would preach another like It again Instcad of that bo preached a sermon on the lovo of God for the world In one way the large audience was disappointed It had come to havo Its love of sensation fed and Philip had not given It anything of the kind In another way It was profound ly moved by the power and sweetness of Philips unfolding of the great sub ject Men who had not been Inside ol a church for years went away thought fully Impressed with the old truth ol Gods love and asked themselves what they had done to deserve Itthe very thing that Philip wanted them to ask The property owners In the church who had felt offended by Philips sermon of the Sunday before went away from the service acknowledging that the new pastor was an eloquent preacher and a man of large gifts In the evening Philip preached again from the same theme using It In an entirely different way Ills audience nearly filled tho church arid was evidently deeply Impressed In spite of all this Philip felt a cer tain clement In the church had arrayed Itself against him Mr Winter did not appear at either service Thero were certain other absences on the part of men who had been constant attendants on the Sunday services He felt without hearing It that a great deal was being said in opposition to him but with tho burden of It beginning to wear a little on him he saw nothing better to do than to go on with his work as If noth ing unusual had taken place- CHAPTER IV Pursuing the plan ho had originally mapped out when bo came to Milton bo spent much of his time In the after noons studying the social and civic life of the town As the first Sunday of tho next month drew near when ho was to speak again on the attitude of Christ to some aspect of modern socie ty be determined to select tho saloon as one of the prominent features of modern llfo that would naturally be HotlccJ by Christ and doubtless be de nounced by him as agreat evil In his study of the saloon question he did a thing which he had never done before nail then only after very much deliberation and prayer lIe went Into the saloons themselves on different oc casions He hind never done such n thing before Ho wanted to know from actual knowledge what sort of places the saloons were What he saw after a dozen visits to as many different groggerles added fuel to the flame of Indignation that burned already hot In him rho sight of the vast army of men turning Into beasts In these dens created In him n loathing and n hatred of tho whole Iniquitous Institution that language tailed to express lIe wondered with unspeakable astonishment In his soul that a civilized community In the nineteenth century would toler ate for one moment the public sale of an article that led on the confession of society Itself to countless crimes against the law of the land and of God Ills Indignant astonishment deepened yet more If that were possible when ho found that the license of 000 a year for each saloon was used by the town to support the public school sys tem That to Philips mind was an awful sarcasm on Christian civiliza tion It seemed to him like selling a man poison according to law and then taking tho money from tho sale to help tho widow to purchase mourning It was full as ghastly as that would be Ho went to see somo of tho other ministers hoping to unite them In a combined attack on tho saloon power It seemed to him that It tbo church as a whole entered tho crusade against tbo saloon It could bo driven out oven from Milton where It had been so long established To his surprise ho found the other churches unwilling to unite In a public battle against whisky men Several of tho ministers openly de fended license as tho only practicable method of dealing with the saloon All of them confessed It was evil and only evil but under the circumstances thought It would do little good to agi tato the subject Philip camo away from severalI Interviews with the min- Isters sad and sick at heart Ho approached several of tho prominent I men In tho town hoping to enlist somo of them In tho fight against tho rum power Hero ho met with an un expected opposition coming in a form ho had not anticipated One prominent citizen said Mr Strong you will ruin your chances hero If you attack tho saloons In this savage manner and Ill tell you why Tho whisky men hold a tremen dous Influence In Milton In tho matter of political power Tho city election comes off tho middle of next month Tho men up for ofllco are dependent for election on tho votes of the saloon men and their following You will cut your head off sure if you como out against them in public Why theres Mr and so on ho named halt a dozen men In your church who aro up for ofllco In tho coming election They cant bo elected without the votes of the rummies and they know it Bet ter steer clear of It Mr Strong The saloon has been a regular thing in Mil ton for over 60 years It is as much a part of the town as the churches or schools and I tell you it is a power What cried Philip in unbounded astonishment do you tell me you a leading citizen of this town of 60000 Infinite souls that tbo saloon power has its grip to this extent on tho civic and social life of the place and you are willing to sit down and let this devil of crime and ruin throttle you and not raise a finger to expel tho monster Is it possible It is not in Christian Ajncdca that such a etato of affairs In our political Ilfo should be endured Nevertheless replied the businessman these are the facts And you will simply dash your own life out against a wall of solid rock If you try to fight this evil You have my warn IngMay I not also have your help cried Philip hungry of soul for com panionshIp In tho struggle which he saw was coming- It would ruin my business to come out against the saloon replied the man frankly And what Is that cried Philip ear nestly It has already ruined far more that ought to bo dear to you Man man what are money and busi ness compared with your own flesh and blood Do you know where your own son was two nights ago In one of the vilest of the vile holes In this city which you n father license to another man to destroy tho lifo of your own child I saw him there myself and my heart ached for him and you It Is the necessary truth Will you not join with me to wipe out this curse In society Tho merchant trembled and his lips quivered at mention of his son but bo replied 1 cannot do what you want Mr Strong but you can count on my sym pathy It you make tho fight Philip finally went away his soul tossed on a wave of mountain proportions and growing moro and more crested with foam and wrath ns the first Sunday of tho month drew near and he realized that the battle was one that ho must wage single handed In a town of 00 000 people- De was not so destitute of support as ho thought There were many mothers hearts In Milton that had ached and prayed In agony long years that the Al mighty would come with his power and sweep the curse away But Philip had not been long enough In Milton to know the entire sentiment of the peo ple Ho had so far touched only tho church through Its representative pul pits and a few of the leading business men and the result had been almost to convince him that very little help could be expected from the public gen erally Ho was appalled to find out what a tremendous hold the whisky men had on tho business andpolittco of the place It was a revelation to him of their power The whole thing seemed to him like a travesty of free government and a terrible commentary on the boasted Christianity of the centurySo he walked Into tho pulpit tho first Sunday of the month ho felt his message burning In his heart and on his lips as never before It seemed beyond all question that If Christ was pastor of Calvary church ho would speak out In plain denunciation of the whisky power And so after the open ing part of the service Philip rose to speak facing an Immense audience that overflowed the galleries and in vaded the choir and oven sat upon tho pulpit platform Such a crowd had never been seen In Calvary church be fore Philip lead not announced his sub- Ject but there was an expectation on the part of runny that he was going to denounce the saloon In the two months that he had been preaching lu Milton he had attracted great atten tlon His audience this morning rep resented a great many different kinds of people Some came out of curiosi ty Others came because tho crowd was going that way So It happened that Philip faced a truly representative audience of Milton people As his eye swept over tho house he saw four of the six members of his church who wero up for office at tho coming election in two weeks For an hour Philip spoke as bo had never spoken In all his life before Ills subject tho cause It represented the Immense audience tho entire occa sion caught him up In a genuine burst of eloquent fury and his sermon swept through the house Hko a prairie fire driven by a high gale At tho close ho spoko of tho power of the church compared with tho saloon and showed how easily It could win the victory against any kind of evil if It were only united and determined Men and women of Milton fathers mothers and citizens ho said tills evil is one which cannot bo driven out unless the Christian neoolo of this CONTINUED Mrs Morris Letter to C EVERY WIFE AND MOTHER LITTH TO MM rlXKBAU NO S46j LydiaDwith

oftre peated one of how to make the young people happy Give them so much of brightness at homo that there will be no need to go elsewhere to look for sun shine I know many of yon will sneer and say that is very easy to say but not so easy to do But I tell you it can be done not easily perhaps but few best things are easy of attainment wo must work for all we get Have you planned for the 22d

the ggantry and expect to see it blossoming jSffthe rose and behold the barren yards the unpainted houses the whopper jawed fences No shade no flowers no Whitewash Why is it And I have felt so grieved that I could not deny the atraMtion or answer the question Why is It Nearly all farmers own their homes yet take no pride in the appear anceof them no shade trees few fruit trees no vines no flowers and in many cases there will be yards and yards in their lawns where not one sprig of grass shows its head This should not be a country home should be beautiful because it can be made so at very little labor or expense if you cannot or will not send to a nursery for trees shrubs and vines then go to the nearest wood land and dig for the elbow grease it costs you all these things Take home and plant and In a little while you will see that your lawn is your chief delight and all the work it will require can be done at leisure moments that would otherwise be unoccupied Bay what you will there

Oloverport R A Shellman Stephens port GENEROUS QOSHEN These Peopte Love Their Pastor In Spirit and In Truth Nothing strengthens encourages and cheers a pastor more than the knowledge that his people appreciate him and that they aro not afraid of spoiling him by showing their appreciation The good people of Goshen and the Glendeane community have so frequently put themselves on record in the last nine years as being willing and glad to minis ter to the temporal needs of their pastor while he has endeavored to minister to their spiritual needs that they have proved themselves to love not in word only but in deed and in truth The many kindnesses of the past year cannot all be mentioned but there are some that deserve special notice and for which we are devoutly thankful In the first place every dollar of the pastors salary has been paid monthly to date The poster has been relieved of any concern whatever about this part of the finances Contributions to other causes have been quite liberal and hearty This calls forth sincere gratitude and inspires hopes for great things in the future The donations the present year have exceeded those of any past year of the nine A choice suit of clothes dry goods and other useful articles for the children and many things for ganeral family use have been poured into our storehouse during the year Lost though by no means least are the boxes that came just in time to be of use as the Christmas presents were being exhausted Hams groceries dry goods canned fruits and dressed chickens in great abundance were unloaded at our door recently without our even having the freIght to pay This thrills our hearts with joy and gratitude because we know it comes out of the fullness of their bye and apprecia lion May the Lord greatly bless hit

Hade by the Death of a Little One Everywhere there are homes in which the death angel has entered folding in his embrace a devoted parent a dear companion or a fondly loved child and leaving agonized hearts to bleed and mourn and perhaps repine at tho deso lation and darkncES which the unex pected messenger has caused Death at best is a terrible event Even with the consolation of our holy religion to assuage the grief it is hard to see a loved one die to witness the sufferings the imploring looks the weakening pulse the chilling limbs the damp brow the ashen paleness the long drawn sllch and the final suspension of bodily powers leaving in the place of our beloved baby a lump of clay which must be soon burled out of sight Then when the funeral is over and the excitement ended it is extremely bard to be loft alone in the desolate homo where the little chair is vacant The unworn garments the high chair at the table or the unused toys serve as painful reminders of the awful grief I was walking through the yard the other day and found one of my babys shoes There it was just as he had worn it Oh what grief to see them I Time may dull the sharpness of the pain and cause the wound in a measure to heal but the terrible agony will not be forgotten and when the days and weeks and months have flown the sin cere mourner will be a mourner still It is to such that the gospel comes with cheering announcement of another life Its strong promises of a future reun ion and Its comforting assurances that in that life there is no more death no more sorrow and crying no more pains and fears The Christians blessed hops is the only thing well calculated to assuage grief Mourners may seek amusement diversion employment they may court society and all the elevating associations and activities of life but apart from the hope which Christianity plants in the breast they will find no permanent re lief from their woe There is no balm in any earthly fountain of tears only by bearing the mourner on to Gods eterni ty where the loved and the lost are restored again All consolation that does not come from God is but desolation When the soul has learned to receive no comfort except in God it has passed be yond the reach of desolation- In every sorrow the heart knoweth its own bitterness To the person bereaved there comes peculiar recollections of the excellencies of the departed Never be fore did I know what trials are I have had troubles but none to compare with this Noone can picture such sorrow or know it except by experience I did not think he could die so soon It came so suddenly that we hardly had time to think Oh the lonely hours I spend without Willie I He was always with me at my heels He was so bright so innocent in his ways I shall do the best I can but how dreary and how dark this world looks to me I Experience is the only teacher The world contains nothing to which the wounded heart may repair for solace and healing Only the comforting influ ences of the Holy Spirit aflords the slightest relief Tho death angel will knock at ether doors but not for my Willie He is with the Redeemer above in Heaven enjoying the presence of the blessed Saviour A few days or a Jew hours frequently change happy homes into homes of sorrow Deaths most to be regretted appear to be the most sud den How sweet it will be to meet him in Heaven with all of tile brightness

and has been for many years But It had a great sale particularly In the south before tho civil war for Clemens was it typical southern orator und a man of wonderful personal mag netism The object of tho novel was to make Burr a hero and to besmirch Hamiltons character In one chapter where Burr was high In the esteem of Washington tho latter Is represented as reading a letter from Hamilton In which Hamilton detailed somo scandalous gossip about Burr Burr was standing behind Washington during tho reading of the letter Wash- Ington Incensed at the contents of tho letter turned quickly and saw Burr to whom he said How daro you read my letter over my shoulder Burr as Clemens represents stung to the quick drew himself up and replied with all the hauteur of his nature When your majesty

Irvington KY EDITOR NEWS DKAH SInAs I consid er corn one of the moat necessary and profitable crops that a farmer can grow and as the time of year Is at hand to be thinking of preparing fcr title crop I thought I would give through the columns of your valuable paper n few pointers that may help my brother far mer to make his crop this year success ful ono In preparing for nay corn crop I pre fer a clover sod Through the winter I haul nil the manure I can make and drop it in piles on the thinnest parts of the field I then spread it on the ground ahead of the plows and turn it under Break every part of tbe ground as deep as your teams can pull the plow Do not cut and cover as a great many farmers do If the weather is right and not too wet I break ia February and March after which I put the harrow on and keep it going until the ground is thoroughly pulverized It you have many clods to contend with put on the roller and roll until they are all mashed Dont be afraid of too much preparation The ground is much easier to cultivate before planting than afterward Now when I am ready to plant I mark off with a marker threce rows at a time I then use my planter that fills two rows at a time and follow this planter with a harrow to level the ground except when the soil is very dry Then I use the rol ler instead of the harrow When the corn comes up so that I can see it I put the harrow on and keep it going until the corn is three or four in ches high when I thin it to two stalks and use the walking cultivator Then take the wide plows off and plow with tho narrow plow as close to the corn as possible The crop should be plowed four or five times but the last time avoid running tho plow too lose to tho corn and plowing too deep Be sure to keep the wide plows off so you can keep the ground level After the corn is laid by if a hard ram should come packing the ground and Forming tho crust on top run a one iioree harrow between the rows to break ho crust so as to leave the ground pul irerized and level Never plow when the ground is wet Now when the cultivation is done we will trust to our Lord and Master for favorable results Dr Bulls Cough Syrup the peoples friend hat been in

and take the time to write him a few items for this weeks issuei Now it lis not what I am going to write that I expect tbe readers of this paper to op predate but it Is what I am not going to write that they will appreciate most- ReadingUncle Johnnie Hardina piece in last weeks issue on Kentucky politics and tissue paper ballots madu me think that I could help him out a little as re gards t remedy for thin ballots He says that he is to become a candidate in 1099 and if elected to the Legislature that one of the laws that he will got through will be the making of all ballots ofsheet iron and the painting of said ballots black on the back Now he knows full well that sheet iron by lOW will be too thin for ballots In Kentucky oince the invention of the X ray So if my remedy falls I am r ody to say II next Now- I think Congress will let us bhyr5el- eftII over armor plate from the bmtd ing of the battleshlD Kentucky as- a compensation for the handsome silver service that Kentucklans presented to that battleship But how to exactly use said armor plate for ballots will be left to the election officers in some of the counties that went Republican In our last election Now the reason I have great faith in armor plate Is because I went with a party aboard a battleship that was anchored out in the middle of the Mississippi river opposite New Or leans and when we had gono all over and all through that II man of war II and were ready to go down the outside steps into our skiff one of our party had Rotten lost and couldnt see his way out and we went back to the city without him Therefore if a man cant ace his way out how can any politician see his way in as regards the vote through those plates Now Uncle Johnnie if I have interfered with any of your plans I beg your pardon I merely mention these things as a II tip II you know Jim Jarred while cutting a tree last Thursday let his nx glance and cut his right foot nearly off Joe Green Ander son corded his leg and stopped the
