Henry Beazley at the formers home in Duncantown Kersey was drunk and Beazley with several other neighbors were tryintr to get him into the house Keskey in his frenzy went in the house and brought out an old army musdet His friends Beazley among the number continued pleading with Kersey to go in the house and quit aising a disturbance Without a word of warning Kersey turned and fired at Beazley Judging from the enormous hole torn in his breast the gun must have been loaded with slugs The charge entered Beazleys right breast cutting of a finger of the right hand whch was thrown up as the gun was leveled and passed into his lung a Beazley is still alive but physicians there is no chance Kersey fled but gave himself up Saturday morning when he was lodg ed in jail without baiL The men had

McCREARY March 15 189S Richmond Ky ARMY and Navy men have for many years been clamoring for the coast nd Navy improvements now being hurriedly made Those posted on such matters have gone con gressional committees for the last twenty years and with tears in their eyes predicted that Uncle Sam would be caught with his breeches down but the national houses being composed chiefly of burrtailed backwoodsmen paid no heed and now that trouble is at hand every improvement for de fense has to be made in the twinkling of an eye and thrown together in any way to get it done Nearly every man sent to congress puts in his undivided time working for reelection A law should be passed making them in eligible and then probably the inter ests of the country instead of those of the member would be looked after Cob S M BuitnETr correspondent of the Chicago Chronicle thus sizes up the situation 1 he best opinion here all trends in one direction which is that war is im pending Even if this Government should be satisfied with an indemnity Spain will decline to pay it President McKinley will not consent to arbi trate the question of Spanish respon sibility if the decision of our naval re port is definite and unanimous The Board of Inquiry report will probably go to Congress in about one week by a special message from Mr McKinley A demand upon Spain for indemnity or a declaration of war against that Government will be made within a few hours after all the facts are laid before Congress WE havent much faith in the fight ing abilities of the menofwar While they cost millions of dollars and much study is given them yet what they can do has only been figured out on paper If one small submarine mine can in twinkling of an eye wreck one of the finest ships afloat what other and more powerful apparatus could do would soon put to the bottom of the sja every war vessel in both navies We are of the opinion that the navies of both the United States and Spain amount to not much more than so ma ny washing tubs that both will be de stroyed in a few weeks fighting and the oil reliable rifle will have to be called into service to whip the Dons if our men can only get at them TIlE old saw A gool beginning has a bad ending proved true with the recent session of the legislature The body started out by proposing some excellent and badly needed leg islation but soon became demoralized and the latter part of the session was spent in passing extreme political measures fist fights personal quarres and time killing It seems impossible for a session of the Kentucky legisla ture to meet and attend only to bus iness which is of any value to the Com mon wealth The past few sessions have been perfect burlesques TIlE Hustler gives good advice in the following Whether or not there will be war we are not at present able to say But we would suggest that the farmers go ahead and plant their crops that the merchants keep trying to sell goods and that oth er business be conducted as in the past or at least until the guns begin to fire There is one thing certain no one can make a living by sitting around talking about what the United tites is going to do for Spain

your tra ding with homefolks and keep your money at home Our attention was called to this recently by our merch ants at Paint Lick sending out the ir flaming posters scattering them here and there over the county and telling the people of Garrard of their many bargains and asking them for their patronage After we got through reading the posters we cast our eye down and at the bottom of one was a Richmond imprint and at the bottom of the other was the Moun iain Echo imprint Now Mr Merch ants do you think this is right Ask the people of Garrard to patronize you but you go off to neighboring towns to have your printing done We have a firstclass printing office in Lan caster and they are prepared to do all kinds of printing there and will do it as cheap as any body and further more the

correspondents rep resenting 103 counties It has been deemed best to subdivide the State in to three grand divisions in order that the average may be made to apply to some crops that arc peculiar to each section The western section embraces counties and is west of a line drawn from Ilardin county on the north to Allen county on the south The cen tral or more proberly the norte cen tral embraces 4o counties lying east of the above named line and north east of an irregular line drawn from Hart county to the county of Greenup to the northeast corner of the State The southern section embraces the remaining 43 counties lying southeast of the last mention line The western counties almost without exception grow the darker heavy type of while in the north central section the production is confined to the Both the western and north central sections produce a largt sur plus of agricultural products In the southeast section the grain produced is consumed at home it being a rare occurrence to ship beyond the confines of the counties This section however produces largely of stock cattle sheep and hogs These subdivisions will be adhered to in the future without call ing further attention to the fact WHEAT In the western section the condition of the wheat crop compared with aver age year is 93 Oa March 1 1890 the conditions of the whole SlTie was C4 and for March 1 the condition was SS On December 1 1S97 the date of the last report from this Bureau the condition for the State was 103 showing a foiling off for the western section as compared with the State of 10 points during the win ter Fortytwo correspondents from tiie western section reply to the ques tion has wheat suffered from any during the of this fifteen reply yes and twentyseven no hessian fly and freezing and thawing without snow protection are thu causes mostly assigned Hessian frequently reported does not seem to be doing serious damage 92 per cent in Barren county being the lowest average reported due from this caus while freezing and thawing has reduced the condition to Gf per cent in McCrac ten county The per cent of old crop still in farmers hands in this section is 19 and the average price of wheat is 91 cents On March 1 1897 the per cent reported still in farmers hands the State was 9 and the price 84 cent In the north central section the con dition average 93 Twelve correspon dents report damege to wheat during winter and 32 report HO damage No fly damage is reported in this section Here the per cent of 1897 crop still in the farmes hands is 14 and the aver age price is 93 cents The per cent of condition ranges from GO inGarrard county to 120 in the county of Henry In the southeast section so little wheat is grfown that the proluction in the State is not effected and for this no estimate is given HOG CHOLERA There seems to be an annual of hog cholera in all sections Only 39 correspondents out of 112 re port cholera A REMEDY gentleman from Western Kentncky gives the following remedy for

discourse of Dr Talmage which and a rapturous view of the world to come Text Acts vii CGUU Behold I see the heavens opened etcStephen had been preaching a rons ing sermon and the people could not stand it They resolved to do as men sometimes would like to do in this day if they dared with some plain preacher of him The only way to silence this man was to knock the breath out of him So they rushed Stephen out of the gates of the city and with curse and and bellow they brought hUn to the cliff as was the when they wanted to take away life by stoning Having brought him to the edge of the cliff they pushed him over After he had fallen they came and looked down and seeing that he Wiis dead began to drop stones upon him stone after stone Amid this horrible rain of missiles Stephen clambers up on his knees and folds his hands while the blood drips from his temples to his cheeks from his checks to his garments from his garments to the ground and then looking up he makes two prayers one for himself and one for his mur derersLord Jesus receive spirit that was for himself Lord lay not this sin to their charge that was for his assailants Then from pain and loss of blood he swooned away and fell asleepI to show you today five pict ures Stephen gazing into Heaven Stephen looking at Christ Stephen stoned Stephen in his dying prayer Stephen asleep First look at Stephen gazing into Heaven Before you take a leap you want to know where you arc going to land Before you climb a ladder you want to know to what point the ladder reaches And it was right that Stephen within a few moments of Heaven should be gazing into it We would all do well to be found in the same posture There is enough in Heaven to keep us gazing A man of large wealth may have statuary in the hall and paint ings in the sitting room and works of art in all parts of the house but he has the chief pictures in the art gallery and there hour after hour you walk with cat alogue and glass and everincreasing Well Heaven is the gallery where God has gathered the chief treasures of His realm Time whole universe is His palace In this lower room where we stop there are many adornments tessellated floor of ame thyst und on the winding cloudstairs are stretched out canvases on which commingle azure and purple fron and gold But Heaven is the gallery in which the chief glories are gathered There are the brightest robes There are the richest crowns John says of it The kings of the earth shall bring their honor and glory into it And I see the procession forming and in the line come all mpireSj and the stars spring up into an arch for the hosts to march under Time hosts keep step to the sound of earthquake and the pitch of avalanche from the mountains and the flag they hear is the flame of a consuming world and all Heaven turns out with harps and trumpets and myriadvoiced acela tnation of angelic dominion to wel ome them in and so the kings of the jarth bring their honor and glory into It Do you wonder that good p p c pften stand like Stephen looking into Heaven We have many friends there There is not a man in this house to lay so isolated in life but there is some one in Heaven with whom he once shook hands As a than gets 3der the number of his celestial very rapidly multiplies We have not had one glimpse of them since the night we kissed them good by and they went away but still we stand gazing at Heaven As when some of our friends go across the sea we stand on time dock or on the steam tug and watch them and after awhile the hulk of the disappears and then there is only a patch of sail on the sky and soon that is gone and they are all out of sight und yet we stand looking in the same direction sowlien our friends from us into the future world we keep looking down through the Narrows and gazing and gazing as though we expected that they would come out and stand on some cloud and give us one glimpse of their blissful and faces While you long to join their compan ionship and the years and the days go with such tedium that they break your heart and the viper of pain and sor row and bereavement keeps gnawing at our vitals you stand still like Stephen gazing into Heaven You wonder if they would recognize your face now so changed has it been with trouble You wonder if timid the myriad delights they care as much for you as they used to when they gave you a helping hand and put their shoulder under your burdens You wonder if they look any older and sometimes in the eveningtidej when the house is all quiet you wonder if you should call them by their first name if they would not answer and perhaps sometimes you do make the cxperimentaud when no one but yourself and God are there you distinctly call their names and listen and sit gazing into Heaven Puss on now and see Stephen upon Christ My text says he saw the Son of Man at the right hand of God Just how Christ looked in this world just how He looks in Heaven we can not say A writer in the time of Christ says describing the Saviours personal appearance that he had blue eyes and light complexion and a very graceful structure but I suppose it was all guesswork The painters of the different ages have tried to imagine the features of Christ and put them up on canvas but we will have to wait until with our own eyes we see urn and with our own ears we can hear Him And yet there is way of seeing and hearing Him now I have to tell you that unless you see and hear Christ on earth you will never see and hear Him in Heaven Look There He is Behold the Lamb of God Can you not see Him Then pray to God to take the scales off your eyes Look that to look that way His voice comes down to you this day comes down to time blindest we send is a vivi1 story of righteousnesskill whoo

down with him at his table but tell me ye who know most of the worlds history what other king ever asked the abandoned and the forlorn and the wretched and the out cast to come and sit beside him Oh wonderful invitation You can take it tolay and stand at the head of the darkest alley in city and say Come ClothS for your rags salve for your sores a throne for your eternal reigning A Christ that talks like that and acts Ikj that and par dons like that do you wonder that Stephen stooil looking at Him I hope to spend eternity doing the same thing I must see Him I must look upon that face once

What a when all nations of time saved shall gather around Christ All faces that way All thrones that way gaz ing on Jesus His worth if all the nations knew Sure the whole carOm would love Him too I pass on and look at Stephen stoned The world ha always wanted to get rid of good men Their very life is an assault upon wickedness Out with Stephen through the gates of the city Down with him over time precipices Let every man come up and drop a stone upon his head But these men did not so much kill Stephen as they killed themselves Every stone upon them While these murderers were transfixed by time scorne of all good mn Stephen lives in time admiration of all Christendom Stephen stoned but Stephen alive So all good men must be pelted All who will live Godly in Christ Jesus must suffer persecution It is no a mm to say that likes him Show me any one who is doing all his duty to state or church and I will show you men who utterly abhor him If all men speak well of you it is be cause you are either a laggard or a dolt If a steamer makes rapid through the waves the water will boil and foam all around it Brave soldiers of Jesus Christ will hear the carbines click When I see a man with voice and money and influence all on time right side and some caricature him and some sneer at him and some denounce him and men who pretend to be actuated by right motives to cripple him cast him out to destroy him I say Stephen stoned When I see a man in some great moral or religious reform battling against grog shop exposing in high places by active means trying to purify the church and better the worlds estate and I find that some of time newspapers anathematize him and men even good men oppose him and denounce him because though he docs good he does not do it in their way I say Stephen stoned Time infinite spite took after John Frederick Oberlin and Paul and Stephen of time text But you notice my friends that while they assaulted him they did not succeed really in killing h Ysu may assault a good Ulan out you can not kill him On the day of his death Stephen spoke before a few people in the San hedrim now he addresses all Paul time Apostle stood on Mars Hill addressing a handful of philoso phers who knew not so much about science as a modern schoolgirl Today he talks to all the millions of Christen dom about the wonders of justification and the glories of resurrection John Wesley was howled down by tho mob to whom ho preached and they threw bricks at him and they denounced him and they jostled him and they spat upon him and yet today in all lands he is admitted to be the great father of Methodism Booths bullet vacated the presidential chair but from that spot of coagulated blood on tht floor in the box of Fords theater there sprang up the life of a nation Stephen stoned but Stephen alive Pass on now and see Stephen in his dying prayer His first thought was not how the stones hurt his head nor what would become of his body His first thought was about hs spirit Lord Jesus receive my spirit The murderer standing on the trap door the black cap being drawn over his head before the execution may grim ace about time future but you and I have no shame in confessing some anxiety about where we are going to come out You are not all body There is within you a souL I see it gleam from your eyes and I see it irradiating your countenance Sometimes I am abashed before an audience not be cause I come under their physical eye sight but because I realize the truth that I stand before so many immortal spirits The probability is that your body will at last find a sepulchcjr in some of the cemeteries that surround your town or city There is no doubt but that your obsequies will be decent and respectful and you will be able to pillowyour head under the mapleor the Norway spruce or the cypress or the blossoming fir but this spirit Rbout which Stephen prayed what direction will that take What guide will escort it What gate will opento receive it What cloud will be cleft for its path way After it has got beyond the light of our sun will there be torches lighted for it the rest of the way Will the soul have to travel through long des erts before it reaches the good land Ifwe should lose there be a castle at whose gate we may ask the way to the city Oh this mys terious spirit within us It has two wings but it is in a cage now It is locked fast to keep it but let the door of this cage open the least and that soul is off Eagles wing could not catch it The lightnings arc not swift enough to take up with it When the sou leaves the body it takes 50 at a bound have I no anxiety about it Have you no it I do not care what you do with my body when my soul is gone or whether you believe in cremation or inhuma tion I shall sleep just

Saharas of darkness Jesus could illume theme What though I get weary ou the way Christ could lift me on II in omnipotent shoulder What though there were chasms to cross Ills hand could transport Then let Stephens prayer be my dying litany Lord Jesus receive my spirit It may be that in that hour we will be too feeble to say a long prayer Ic may be in that hour wa will not be able to tay the Lords Prayer for it has seven petitions Perhaps we mummy be too fee ble even to say the infant prayer our mothers taught us which John Quincy Adams 70 years of age said every night when he put his head upon his pillowNow I lay ma down to sleep I pray the L rd iny soul to keep We may be too feeble to employ either of these familiar forms but this prayer of Stephen is so short is so is so earnest is so comprehensive ve surely will be able to say that Lord Jesus receive my spirit Oh if that prayer is ansvoredhow sweet it will be to die This world is clever enough to us Perhaps it has treated us be treated but if on the dying pillow there should break the light of that better world we shall have no more regret about leaving a small dark damp house for one large beautiful capacious That dying minister in Philadelphia some years ago beauti fully depicted it when in his last he threw up his hands and cried out I move into the light Pass on now and I will show you one more picture and that is Stephen asleep With a pathos and simplicity peculiar to the Scriptures the text says of Stephen He fell asleep Oh you say what a place that was to sleep A hard rock under him the blood streaming the mob howling What a plai it was to sleep And yet iiy text takes that symbol of slum ber to describe his departure So sweet was it so contented was it so peaceful was it Stephen had lived a very life his chief work had been to care for the poor How many ioaves of bread he distributed how many bare feet he has sandaled how many cots of sickness anti distress he blessed with ministries of kindness and love I do not know but from the way he lived and the way he preached an 1 the way he died I know he was a laborious Christian lint that is now He has pressed the cup to the last fainting lip He has taken the last insult from his enemies The last stone to whose crushing weight he is susceptible has been hurled Stephen is deal The come They take him up They wash away the blood from the wounds They straighten out the bruised limbs They brush back time tangled hair from the brow and then they pass around to look upon the calm countenance of him who had lived for the poor and died for the truth Stephen asleep- I have seen the sea driven with the hurricane until the tangled foam caught in the rigging and wave rising above wave seemed as if about to storm the heavens and then I have seen the tempest drop and the waves crouch and everything become smooth and burnished as though a camping place for the glories of Heaven So I have seen a man whose life has been tossed and driven coining down at last to an infinite calm in which there was the hush of Heavens lullaby Stephen asleep I saw such a lIe fought all his days against poverty and against abuse They traduced his name They rattled at the door knob while he was dying with duns for debts he could not pay yet the peace of God brooded over his pillow and while the world faded Heaven dawn ed and the deepening twilight of earths night was only the opening twi light of Heavens morn Not a Not a tear Not a struggle Hush I Stephen asleep- I have not had the faculty to tell tha weather J can never tell by the set ting of the sun whether there will drought or not I can not tell by the blowing of the wind whether it will be fair weather or foul on the morrow But I can prophesy and I will weather it will be when you the Christian come to die You may have it very rough now may be this week one annoyance the next another annoyance It may be tnis year one bereavement the next year another breavemcnt Before this year has passed you may have to beg for bread or ask for a scuttle of coal or a pair of shoes but at last the Christ will come in and darkness will go out All though there may be no hand to jloso your eyes and no breast on which to rest your dying head and no candle to lift the night the odors of Gods hanging garden will regale your soul and at your bedside will halt the chariots of the King No more rents
