school when it was established three year ago He had a difficult task in organizing and getting things in run ning order as no school of the kind had ever been conducted in Lancaster before He went at the work in a bus inesslike way and succeeded in estab lishing one of the best schools in the state lie weeded out the class of boys and girls who attend simply to say they were going to school and dur ing his last year had only pupils who meant business and attended to work and learn something During his stay in Lancaster he has conducted him self us a gentleman should and has surely worked hard for the of the schools interest Prof Gowen has accepted a posit ion with Dr Ashley S Johnson Pres dent of The School of Evangelists at Kmberlin Heights Tenn Dr Johnson paid a very high compliment to Prof Gowen when he said to sev eral in Lancaster that he was the only he had ever met whom he would be willing to take into permanent as sociation withhimself A graduate of Bethany College offered to put two thousand dollars into tee school if he could secure the position to teach but after investigating ProfGowens work in Lancaster he decided in favor of Prof Gowen 11 mann advancement i Buy

constant pumping no water will be lost This enterprise will be a great ad vantage to the town as the electric light plant is run from the same engine and in dry weather a sc ircity of water has

Council lived near the Public Square where they would be compelled to listen to pistol shots vile oaths and Cowman chee yells all night we believe they would make hot haste to order the marshal to do night duty instead ol having him stand about the streets all day Saturday night a crowd of fel lows simply elevated hades all night As the marshal is on duty all day its out of the question to expect him to stay up all night We need no mar shal during the day Several deputy sheriffs are always about the Court House who would immediately arrest offenders there are many oth er officials who could make an arrest in case of necessity The jailer sev eral constables and other officers who are vested with power to make arrests are about town all the time and it i their duty to make an arrest and w

8th district THE strict censorship ordered by the Government has made it almost to get definite news of the movements being made by the United States army and navy The best cor espondents to be obtained arc as near the scat of war as it is possible for them to get but their messages are mad and boiled down by government officers until they are hardly worth the while to read We started in to publish a column or so of war news each issue taking the best of each days reports This plan worked very well until we undertook to read the entire column on publication day The result was that we would have several items telling of steps taken or battles fought and then would come a denial of the whole thing The sum and substance of occur rences since last issue amounts to nothing save tie mustering in of mor volunteers and the second by the president Under this last call Kentucky will furnish one more regi ment and several hundred recruits to the regiments already organized Hon I G Colson will raise the new regi meat and the men will be taken en tirely from Eastern Kentucky Gov Bradleys effort to furnish a colored regraent was in vain The U S regulars and volunteers are still at Tampa though they may ba landed in Cuba before this paper gets to its readers Eight additional regiments arc to be sent to the Phil ipines giving Maj Gen Merritt a force of 20000 men The Spaniards are doing their ut most to keep out of the way of the American ships Their Cape Verde fleet took refuge in the landlocked harbor at Santiago and it was imme diately bottled up by Schleys big fleetAdmiral Dewey still holds Manila by the throat and the Spaniards are una ble to escape from sure starvation or surrender from Port au Prince and Cape Hay tien say that the outer forti fications of Santiago harbor were bombarded Tuesday by the American licet The reports are from Spanish sources and are not verified No state ment is made as to the damage done It is difficult to determine from the conflicting reports sent out when the main movement against Cuba will be gin Of course any plans are liable to bu Iden and complete change to meet new conditions arising but the plans at present in view do not seem to definite The beginning of the main invasion of the island will de pend largey on the number of effect ive men left available after providing for the expeditions to the Philipiner Santiago and to Porto Rico of the plan to feike Porto Rico first is ed to These expeditions wLl exhaust the force ef regulars and the best of the volunteers and the main attack on Cuba may be left dependent on the progress made in bringing the volun teers to the desired state of efficiency It is not impossible that all these con tingencies may delay the main until near the end of the rainy season but it is to be remembered that this does not agree with the PUt pose that has all along been credited to the President of desiring to afford speedy relief to the reconcentrados A WASHINGTON special says efforts are still being made on the part of of the members of the Kentucky lelegation to secure a Brigadier Gen eralship or two for the State but there still seems to be little time a Kentuckian calls at the White House whether he ha a or Rcpultlican he is reminded of the appointments of Breckinridge and llacon From what can be learned the case of Adj Gen Dan Collier seems to be blocked owing to a trifling cause It is said that Senator Deboe has been urged by a strong class of Kentucky Republicans not to lose any sleep over the appointment of Collier for if the General were to be appointel the Ser ators friend Assistant Adj General Forrester might become Adj General This is thought to be a very potent gument with the Senator against the appointment of Collier and a Kentucky Republican said to night that it was the one thing in the way of Colliers Congressman Davison is still working hard for Collier and believes that he has a show but a poor one Tin mothers

paws as officers in the army kec should have been made long ago an 1 before many of the politicians were given appointments The ilea of taking some fellow who hasnt the most remote conception of how a battle should be conducted and patting him over soldiers is a disgrace to the country If the politicians must be used in this conflict pile them up as breastworks Tus war hai completely drowned out

Dawey the bottledup fleet etc If anyone hereabouts is bothering over the congressional race he is certainly keeping his troubles to himself A HOWL is going up in Kentucky over the report that the additional troops called for will be sandwiched in the regiments now organized and no new regiments will be formed Of course this kick is made by fellows who want to be officers If a man wants to fight for his country there is room a gun uniform and ammunition awaiting him The kick only comes from those wanting office Uncle Sam wants fighters not figure heads Is a letter from a soldier now at Tampa he writes us that there arc more generals and colonels at Tampa than anything else and as they Icnow nothing about soldiering being they are a great nuisance Just so If we had command of the army we would put in about three weeks cutting off shoulder straps worn by a lot of muttonheads who ought to be walking duty as privates ITS all well enough to have other countries on our side but when it comes to toadying to any of them we think its time to stop Let Uncle Sam go ahead attending to his own bush ness of whipping Spain and other countries will attend to theirs It makes us tired to see flaming telling what such and such a country thinks or how she feels Blast what other countries think TUB CourierJournal is giving a news service which is rapidly growing to be the most popular

sympathy Irritatingly and Awkwardly Expressed Voluble Iooplo Who Open Wound Afresh and Display a Lack of Tact Most Exisperatingly Sermon by Dr TuiuiagL JJD The awkward and irritating mode of trying to comfort people in trouble is hero set forth by Dr Tnlmagj and a better way of dealing with broken hearts is recommended Text Job 2 Miserable comforters are ye allThe man of Uz had a great many loss of his family the loss of his property the loss of his health but the most exasperating thing that carne upon him was the tantalizing talk of those who ought to have sym pathized with him And looking around upon them and weighing what they had said he utters the words of textWhy God let sin come into the world It is a question I often hear discussed but never satisfactorily God made the world fair and beautiful at the start If our first pa rents had not sinned in Eden they might have gone out of that garden and found Q paradises all around the earth Europe Asia Africa and North and South America so many flower gardens or orchards of fruit redolent and luscious I suppose that when God poured out the Gihon and the lliddekel lie poured out at the same time the Hudson and Susquehanna the was very fair and beauti ful tp look upon Why did it not stay so God had the power to keep back sin and woe Why did lie not keep them back Why not every cloud roseate and every step a joy and every sound music and all the ages jubilee of sinless men and sinless women God can make a rose as easily as lie can mimic a thorn Why then the predominance of thorns lie can make good fair ripe fruit as well as gnarled and sour fruit Why so much then that is gnarled and sour lie can make men robust in health Why then are there so many invalids Why not have for our whole race perpetual leisure insteal of this tug and toil and tussle for a livelihood I will tell you why God let sin come into the world when I get on the other side of the river of death That is the place where such questions will ba answered and such mysteries solv ed lie who this side that river at tempts to answer the question only illustrates his own ignorance and in competency All 1 known is one great fact and that is that a herd of woes has come in upon us trampling down everything fair and bountiful A sword at the gate of Eden and a sword at every gate More people under the ground than on it The graveyards in vast majority The six thousand winters have made more scars than the six thousand can cover up Trouble has taken the tender heart of this world in its two rough hands and pinched until the nations wail with the agony If all the mounds of grave yards that have been raised were put side by side you might step on them else going all around tins world and around again and around again These are facts And now I have to say that in a world like this the occupation is that of giving con dolence The holy science of comfort to the troubled we ought all of us to study There are many of you who could look around upon some of your very best friends who wish you well and are very intelligent and yet be able truthfully to say to them in your days of trouble Miserable comforters are ye all 1 in the first place that very voluble people are incompetent for the work of giving comfort Hilda and Eliphaz had the gift of language and with their words almost bothered Jobs life out Alas for these voluble people among the houses of the afllieted and talk and talk and talk and talk They rehearse their own sor rows antI then tell the poor suf ferers that they feel badly now but they will feel worse after awhile Silence Do you expect with a thin courtplaster of words to heal a wound deep as the soul Step very gently around about broken heart Talk very softly around those whom God has bereft Then go your way A firm grasp of the hand a look just one word that means as muclms a whole dictionary have given perhaps all the comfort that a soul needs A man has a terri ble wound in his arm The surgeon conies and binds it up Now he says carry that arm in a sling and be very careful of it Let no one touch it But the neighbors have heard of the accident and they come in and they say Let us see it And the ba tillage is pulied off and this one and that one most feel it and see how much it is swollen and there is irritation and inflammation and exasperation where there ought to be cooling The surgeon comes in and says What docs all this mean You have no business to touch those That wound will never heal unless you let it alone So there are souls broken down in sorrow What they most want is rest or very careful and gentle treatment but the neighbors have heard of the bereave ment or of the loss and they come in to sympathize and they Show us now the wound What were his last words Rehearse now the whole How did you feel when yo found you were an orphan Tearing off the bandages here and pulling thorn off there leaving ghastly wound that the balm of Gods grace had already begun to heal Oh let no loquacious people with everrattling tongues go into the homes of the dis tressedAgain I remark that all those per sons are incompetent to give any kind of comfort who act merely as worldly philosophers They come in and say Why this is what you ought to have expected The laws of nature must have their way and then they get over something they have seen in postmortem examinations Now all human philosophy at such a time does it make to that father and mother what disease their son died of He is dead and it makes no difference whether the trouble was in the epigastric region If the be of the stocal school he will come and say You ought to control your feelings You must not cry so You must cultivate a cooler tempera ment You must have selfreliance selfgovernment selfcontrol r an

along summers grandest you bandages Scene is philosopher eye A ist has 1m instrument and he sweeps his fingers acres the strings now evoking strains of joy antI now strains of sadnes He can nt play all the tunes on one strings The soul is an instrument thou sand strings and all of emotions were made to play on it Now an an them now a dirge It is no evidence of weakness when one is overcome of sorrow Edmund Burke was found in a pasturefield with his arms around a horses neck and some one said Why the great man has lost his mind No the horse belonged to his son who had recently died anti iris great heart broke ever the grief It is no sign of weakness that men are overcome of their sorrow Thank God for the relief of tears Have you never been in trouble when you could not weep and you would have given any thing for a cry David did well when he mourned for Alsalom Abraham did well when lie bemoaned Sarah Christ wept for Lazarus and the last man that I want to see come anywhere near me when I have am kind of trouble is a worldly philosopher Again I remark that those persons are incompetent for the work of com fort bearing who have nothing but cant to offer There are those who have the idea that you must groan over the distressed and aillicted There are times in when one cheerul loUt human oftsot ts caressing im face dawning upon a mans soul is worth 1000 to him Do not whine over the aillicted Take the promises of the Gospel and utter them in a manly tone Do not be afraid o if you furl like it not drive hearses through that poor soul Do not tell him the trouble was fore ordained it will not be any comfort to it was 1000000 years coining If you want to find splints for a broken bone do not take cast iron Do not toll them it is Gods justice that weighs our grief They want to hear of Gods tend r mercy In otjier words do not give them aqua fortis when they need valerian Again I remark that those persons are poor comforters who have never had any trouble themselves A lark spur can not lecture on the nature of a snowflake and those people who have always lived in the summer of pros perity can not talk to those who are frozen in disaster God keeps people in the world I think for this very work of sympathy They have been through all these trials They know all that which irritattys and all that which soothes If there are men and women here who old people in the house or near at hand so that they can easily reach them I you Some of us have had in life and although we have had many friends around about us we have wished that father and mother were still alive that we might and tell them Perhaps they could not much but it would have been such a comfort to have them around These aged ones who have been all through the trials of life know how to give condolenceCherish let them lean on your arms these aged people If when you spik to them they can not hear just what you say the first timo when yon say it a second time do not it ehnrply If you do you will be sorry for it on the day when you take the last look and brush buck th silvery locks from the wrinkled brow just be fore they screw the lid on Blessed be God for the old They may not have much strength to go around but they are Gods appointed ministers of comfort to a broken heart People who have not had trial them selves can not give comfort to others They may talk very beautifully and they give you a great deal o poetic sentiment but while poetry is perfume that smells sweet it makes a very poor salve If you have a grave in a pathway and somebody comes and covers it all over with flowers it is a grave yet Those who have not had grief themselves know not the broken heart They know not the meaning of childlessness anti they having no one to put to bed at night or the standing in a room where every book and picture and door are full of door mat where she sat the cup out of which she drank the place where she stood at the door and clapped her hands the odd figures that she blocksshe built into a house Ah no you must have trouble yourself before you can comfort trouble in others But come nil ye who have been bereft an1 3e who have been comforted in your sorrows and stand around these souls and say to them I had that very sorrow God com forted me and He will comfort you and that will go right to the spot In other words to comfort others we must have faith in God practical ex perience and good sound common senseBut there are three or four consider ations that I will brinir to those who are sorrowful and distressed and that we can always bring to tTum knowing that they will effect a cure And the first consideration is that God sends our troubles in love I ofter h ar peo ple in their troubles say Why I wonder what God has against me They seem to think God has some grudge against them because trouble and misfortune have com Oh no Do yon not remember that pas sage of Scripture Whom the Lord loveth He chastcncth A child conies in with a very bad splinter in its hand and you try to extract it It is a very painful operation The child draws back from you but you persist You are going to take that splinter out so you take that chill with a gentle but firm grasp for al though there may ba pain in it the splinter must come out And it is love that dictates it and makes you My friends I really think that all our sorrows In this world are only time hand of our Father extractins some thorn If all these sorrows were sent by enemies I would say Arm against them and as in tropical climes when a tiger comes down from the mountains and carries a child from the village the neighbors band together and go into the forest and hunt the monster so I would have you if J thought these misfortunes were sent by an en im go out and battle against them But no they come from a Father s o kind so loving so gentle that time prophet speaking of his teqderness and mercy drof s the idea of a father and says as one whom his mother comfortcth so will I comfortyouAgain there is comfort in the thought that God b3 all this is going to make you useful Do you know that those who accomplish the most for God and Heaven have all been under the

iron nil thrut them into the terrible fur tMes Then b weutud workmen with long tongs stirred the blaze Then it in a crushing machine and then they put it between jaws that bit it in twain Then they put it on an anvil and there were great hammers swung by machinery each one half a ton in weight that went thump thump thump If that iron could have spoken it would have said Why all this beating Why must I be than any other iron The workman would have said We want to make axes out of you keen sharp axes axes with which to hew down the forest and build the ship and erect houses and carry on a thousand enterprises of civilization That is the reason we pound you Now God puts a soul into the furnace of trial and then it is brought out and run through the crushing machine and it comes down on the anvil and upon it blow after blow blow after blow until the soul cries out 0 Lord what does all this mean God says 1 want to make something very useful out of you You shall be something to hew with and something to build with Itis a practical process through which I am putting you Yes my Christian friends we want more tools in the church of God not more wedges to split with We have enough of these Not more bores with which to drill We have too many bores What we really want is keen sharp welltempered and if there be any other way of making them than in the hot furnace and 011 the anvil

wish I were dead Oh there never was so much reason for your living as now By this or deal have boon consecrated a of the most high God Go out and do your whole work for the Mas terAgain there is comfort in the thought that all our troubles arc a rev elation Have you ever thought of it in that connection The man who has been through chastls sment is about a thousand things in his soul he ought to know For instance here is a man who prides himself on his cheerfulness of diameter lie has no patience with anybody who is depressed in spirits Oh it is easy for him to be cheerful with his fine house his filled wardrobe and well strung instruments of music and tapestried parlor and plenty money in the bank waiting for some permanent investment It is for him to be cheerful But suppose his fortune goes to pieces anti his house goes down under the sheriffs and the banks will not have anything to do with his paper those people who were once ele gantly entertained at his table get shortsighted that they can not him upon the street How then Is it so easy to be cheerful It is easy to be clurerful in the home after the days work is done and the gas is turned on and the house is full of romping little ones But suppose the piano is shut because the fingers that played on it will no more touch the keys and the childish voice that asked so many questions will ask no more Then is it so easy When a man wakes up and finds that his resources are all gone he begins to rebel and he sas God is hard God is outrageous He had no busi ness to do this to me My friends those of us who have been through trouble known what a sinful und re bellious heart we have and how much God has to put up with and how much we need pardon It is only in the light of a flaming furnace that we can learn our own weakness nail our own lack of moral resource STANFORD The foldingbed victim Mr Ashnrst died a few days ago The home of Mr John M White where the acci dent happened has been peculiarly

EXPLANATION Having found that one paragraph of my article last week was misunder stood sonic I desire to explain so that I may not even unintentionally do injustice to those concerned You remember I said the board had weakened my authority every time they had had anything to do with a case of discipline and I said if they had stood by me firmly in the first few cases there wouldnt have ben any more Now I dd not say and did not mean to leave the impression that they purposely failed to stand by me firmly or purposely weakened my au thority when they thought me wrong Hut 1 meant to say that while they thought they were right and hence were acting with the best of motives their judgment was at fault and they were actually and seriously crippling my authority Let mo illustrate Take a doctor whose treatment in a certain case is to be decided would be a competent committee to say ho is right or wrong Should it not be a commit tee of doctors and for their opinion to have any weight should they not be at least as good doctors as he is If they are superior to him their decis ion may be conclusive but suppose they arc inferior what weight will their opinion have Gen Grant was considered a severe disciplinarian but a good one What would he think if a committee of should decide his course wrong Or even generals who are not known as good disciplinarians So if a teachers discipline is to be decided upon who may say its wrong Certainly only those who are them selves good disciplinarians Not one teacher in a hundred can servo on such comuiittoe for not one teacher in a hundred is a good disciplinarian Again I say i never accused them of purposely making it harder for me for they claim that they have upheld me when I was in the wrong but here is the think me wrong I think them wrong So much for the actions of theboard as a board But whether the indi vidual members are excusable for their actions some of which I men tioned last week I leave the public to decideAnd suppose a trustee should go to a subordinate teacher when some rule is objected to by a child of that trustee and say something like this ran yooprooa a6Ccro please cant you havo your own rule disregard thcee of the principal if you choose and should try to got a con fession from that teacher that the rule was made in order to catch his children when in fact the rule had been made over two years and applied to all the school alike what would you think of that Jf I understand that some say be mistaken about some of the charges I made Ill say this I stand ready to make oath to them all and others besideseven worse In regard to my leaving I want to say this the main cause 1 have for is that I will not get to reap the rewards of my labor I have done all the drudgery and have the school in such condition it will bo some pleas ure to teach I have been planning a building so to speak and after get ting the dirt and rubbish removed and the foundation laid I give up the easy part to some one else But I can more up the work that my whole soul has been in for three years be cause I am now convinced that even should I stay it would be impossible or me to make of the school what I had always hoped unless I could be backed bv a more progressive spirit than characterizes the present regime WWW I wish to express my appreciation of the hearty approval of my the unreserved commendation of my work the almost universal condemnation of the treatment I have received and the many expressions of hearty good will I want to say to those who took it upon themselves to get up that peti tion that I appreciate the spirit which prompted it although I told all who spoke to me about it that it could not possibly do me any good still I thought it would be proper for the peo le to show on which side they stand and I am assured by many who ought to know that outside a few parties all tho patrons are on my side This is a sourca of great pleasure to BQC My friends will be glad to know that I am not out of a position as such a course ie likely to leave one Dr Ashley Johnson happened to be with me when I received the boards notifi cation whicli he understood as I did Then and there my mind was made up to accept the position he had pressed upon position better than this in every respect So I feel toward those who would wish me gone as the mole did toward the person who buried it alive Im not hurt but am better off However I do not deem it my duty to publicly thank those who were the cause of my getting a better place un less Im convinced that they were prompted by a desire to do me good 1 desire to say in closing that I have reason to believe some of them would ness of having done unto others as I wished them to do unto me The Cuban question and political is sues
