really what he seemed to be But nnd by two or three menrough byI couth fellowsdropped In to the landlord and they too to havo no other business than to sit in silence looking at me or now and again to exchange a word In a patois of their own By the time my supper was ready the knaves numbered Blx in all and as they were armed to a man with huge Spanish knives and evidently resented my presence In their dull rustic fashion every rustic is sus picious I began to think that unwit tingly I had put my head into a wasps nestNevertheless I ate and drank with apparent appetite but little that passed within the circle of light cast by the smoky lamp escaped me I watched the mens looks and gestures at least as sharply as they watched mine and all the time I was racking my wits for some mode of disarming their suspicions or falling that of learning something more of the post lion which It was clear tar exceeded in difficulty and danger anything I had expected Tho whole valley It would seem was on the lookout to protect my man I had purposely brought with me from Auch a couple of bottles of choice Armagnac and these bad been carried Into the house with my saddle bags I took one out now and opened it and carelessly offered a dram of the spirit ito tho landlord lie took it As drank it I saw his face flush heI landed back tho cup reluctantly and that hint I offered him another strong spirit was already beginning work Ho accepted and In a few toI utes began to talk more freely and less of the constraint which had marked us Still his tongue ran chief ly on questions he would know this lie would learn that but even this war a welcome change 1 told him openly whence I had come by what road how long I had stayed In Auch and where and so far I satisfied his curiosity Only when I came to tha subject of my visit to Coeheforet I kept a mysterious silence hinting darkly at business In Spain and friends across the border and this and that and giving tho peasants to understand if they pleased that I was in the same interest as their gilled master They took the bait winked at one another and began to look at me In n more friendly waythe landlord fore most But when I had led them so far I dared go no farther lest I should commit myself nnd be found out I stopped therefore and harking back to general subjects chanced to compare myprovlnco with theirs The land lord now become almost talkative was not slow to take up this challenge and it presently led to my acquiring a curt cue piece of knowledge He was boast Ing of his great snow mountains tho forests that propped them the bears that roamed in them the izards that loved the ice and the boars that fed on the oak mast Well I said quite by thance we have not these things It IB true But we have things lathe north you have not We have tens of thousands of good horsesnot such ponies as you breed here At the horso fair at Fe camp my sorrel would be lost Inthe crowd Here In the south you will not meet his match in a long days JourneyDo make too sure of that the man replied his eyes bright with triumph and the dram What would you say It I showed you a betterIn my own stable I saw that his words sent a kind of thrill through his other hearers and that such of them as understood for two or three of them talked their patois onlylooked at him angrily and In a twinkling I began to comprehend But I affected dullness and laughed scorn fullySeeing I Is believing I said I doubt if you know a good horse here when you see one my friend Oh dont IT he said winking Indeed I doubt it I answered stubbornly Then come with me and I will show you one he retorted discretion giv- Ing way to vainglory His wife and the others Psaw looked at him dum founded but without paying any heed 1o them he took up a lanthorn and assuming an air of peculiar wisdom opened the door Come with me ho continued I dont know a good horso when I see one dont I I know a better than yours at any rate I should not have been surprised It the other men had Interfered butIsuppose he WAS a leader among them and they djd not and In a moment we were outside Three paces through the darkness took us up to tho stable on offset at the back of the inn My man twirled the pin and leading the way In raised his lanthorn A horse whinnied softly anu turned Its bright soft eyes on usa baldraced chestnut with white halls in Its tall and one while stocking lerel tar guide exclaimed way ing the lanthorn to and fro boastfully that I might ace Its points What do you say to that Is that an under sized ponyT No I answered purposely stinting my praise It Is pretty fairfor this countryOr any country ho answered wrathfully Any country I snyI dont care where it is And I have reason to know Why man that horse is But there that Is a good horse It over you saw one And with that he ended abruptly and lamely low ering tho lanthorn with a sudden gesture and turning to the door lIe was on tho insant in such hurry that ho almost shouldered me out jut I understood I knew that he nad nearly betruyed allthat ho had been on tho point of blurting out that that was M do Cocheforcts horse M de Cocheforets comprenoz blen And while 1 turned away my face in the darkness that he might not see mo smile I was not surprised to find tho becomtIina mood to cut my throat for a trifle It was not my cuo to quarrel how everAnything but that I made therefore as If I had seen nothing and when we were back in the Inn praised the horse grudgingly and like a man but halt convinced The ugly looks and ugly weapons I saw around me wore flno Incentives to caution and no Italian I flatter myself could have played his part more nicely than I did But I was heartily glad when it was over and I found myself at last left alone for tho night In a little garret n mere fowlhouse upstairs formed by the roof and gable walls and hung with with strings of apples and chestnuts It was a poor sleepingplaceroughc- hilly and unclean I ascended to 11 by a ladder my cloak and a little fern formed my only bed But I was glad to accept It It enabled me to be alone and to think out the position un watchedOf M do Cocheforet was at the chateau lIe had left his horse hero and gone up on foot probably that was his usual plan lIe was therefore within my reach in one senseI could not have como at a better tImebut in FiClOio IT UP another he was as much beyond it as if I were still In Paris So far was I from being able to seize him that I dared not ask a question or let fall n rash word or even look about mo freely I saw I dared not The slight est hint of my mission the faintest breath of distrust would lead to throat cuttingand the throat would be mine while the longer I lay in the village the greater suspicion 1 should incur and the closer would be the watch kept over meIn such a position some men might have given up tho attempt and saved themselves across the border But 1 have always valued myself on my fidel ity and I did not shrink If not today tomorrow if not this time next time The dice do not always turn up aces Bracing myself therefore to the occasion I crept as soon as tho house was quiet to a window a small square open lattice much cobwebbed and partly stuffed with hay I looked out The village seemed to be asleep The dark branches of trees hung a few feet away and almost obscured a gray cloudy sky through which a wet moon sailed drearily but as my eyes grew used to tho darkness I had only Just put out my rushlight I made out the oUUlneIatI had hoped for this I could now keep watch and learn at least whether Cocheforet left before morning If he did not I should know he was still here If he did I should be the better for see Ing his features and learning perhaps other things that might be of use Making up my mind to be uncom fortable I sat down on the floor by the lattice and began a vigil that might last I knew until morning It did last about an hour At the end of that time I heard whispering below then footsteps then as tome persons turned the corner a voice speaking aloud and carelessly I could not catch the words spoken but the voice was a gentlemans and Its bold accents and masterful tono left me in no doubt that the speaker was M de Cocheforet him self Roping to learn more I pressed my face nearer to tho opening and I had Just made out through tho gloom two figuresone that of a tall slight man wearing a cloak the other I thought a womans In a sheeny white dresswhen a thundering rap on the door of my garret mado me spring back a yard from the lattice and He down hurrldly on my couch The noise was repeated WcllT I cried cursing the untimely interruption I was burning with anxiety to sew more What Is itT What U the matter Tho trap door was lifted a foot 01 more Tho landlord thmst up his head You called did you not he asked Ho hold up a rushlight which Illuminated half the room and lit up his grin ning fac- eCnllednt this hour of tho night you oolT I answered angrily Not I did not call Go to bed man But he remained on the ladder tap- Ing stupidly I heard you ho said Go to bed You are drunk I I an swered sitting up I toll you I did notcallOh well ho answered slowly And you do not want anything Nothing except to be left alone I replied sourly UmphI ho said Goodnight Goodnight Goodnight I an sworcd with what patience I might ThIS tramp of tho hOrsos hoofs as It was led out of the stable was in my oar at tho moment Goodnight I continued feverishly hoping ho would still retire in time and I have a chance to look out I want to sleep Good ho said with a broad grin But It Is early yet nnd you have plenty of time And then at last he slowly let down the trapdoor and I hoard him chuckle ca he went down the ladderBefore he roachod the bottom I was at the window Tho woman whom I had seen still stoop below In the same place and beside her a man In a peas ants dress holding a lanthorn But the man the roan I wanted to see was no longer there And It was evident that ho was gone It was evident that tho others no longer feared me for while I gazed the landlord came out to them with another lanthorn and said something to the lady and she looked up at my window and laughed- It was a warm night and she wore nothing over her white dress I could see her tall shapely figure and shining eyes and the firm contour of her beau tiful face which if any fault might be found with it erred in being too regu lar She looked like a woman formed by nature to meet dangers and difficul ties and oven hero at midnight in the midst of these desperate men she seemed In place It was possible that under her queenly exterior and behind the contemptuous laugh with which she hoard the landlords story there lurked a womans soul capable of folly and tenderness But no outward sign betrayed Its presence I scanned her very carefully and secretly If the truth be told I was glad to fled Madam de Cochoforit ueh a woman I was glad that rhe had laughed as she hadthat she was not a little tender efalldllke woman to be crushed by the fret pinch of trouble For It I succeeded in my task It riot ptohl Women I said wore all alike She would find consolation quickly enough I watched nmtll the group broke up Had madam with one of the men weat bar way round the corner of tho Inn awl out of my fight Thau I re tired to bed again feeling more than ever preplexed what course I should adopt It was clear that to Mieceed I roust obtain admission to tie house This was garrisoned unless my Instructions erred by two or three old menservants only andas many women since madam to IHsu1wJ her husbands visits the more easily lived and gave out that she lived In great retirement To seize her husband at home therefore might be no impossi ble task though here in the heart of the village a troop or horso might make tho attempt and fall But how was I to gain admission to tho houso a house guarded by quick witted women and hedged in with all tho precautions love could devise That WAS tho question and dawn found mn still debating It still as far as ever from an answer With tho first light I was glad to get up I thought that the fresh air might inspire mo and I was tired besides of my stuffy closet I crept stealthily down the ladder and managed to pass unseen through tho lower room In which several per sons were snoring heavily The outer door was not fastened and in a hand turn I stood in the street It was still so early that tho trees stood up black against the reddening skr but the bough upon tho post before tho door was growing green and In n few minutes the gray light would be everywhere Already even in the roadway there was a glimmering of it and as I stood at tho corner of the housewhere I could command both tho front and the side on which tho stable openedlooking greedily for any trace of the midnight departure my eyes detected something lightcolored lying on the ground It was not more than two or three paces from me and I stepped to it and picked it up curiously hoping it might be a note It was not a note however but a tiny oranges colored sachet such as women carry In tho bosom It was full of some faintly scented powder and bore on one side the InlUoJOlE worked in white silk and was altogether a dainty lit tle toy such as women love Doubtless Madam de Coclwforet had dropped It in tho night I turned it over and over and then I put It away with a smile thinking It might be use ful some time and In some way I had scarcely done this and turned with the Intention of exploring tho street when the door behind mo creaked on Its loatner hinges and In n moment my host stood nt my elbow Evidently his suspicions wore again aroused for from that tlmo he map aped to bo with me on one pretense nt nnother until noon Moreover his manner grew each joment more churl Ish his hints plainer until I could scarcely avoid noticing the one or the other About midday having followed mo for tha 20th time into the street ho camp at last to the point by Baking i me rudely if I did not need my horse No I said Why do you ask Because ha answered with an ugly smile this Is not a very healthy place for strangersAh But the border air suits mo you sec It was a lucky answer for taken with my talk of tho night before It pussled him by apaV suggesting bat myIhe had done scratching his head over it the clatter of hoofs broke tho sleepy quiet of tho village street nnd tho lady I had seen tho night before rode quickly round tho corner and drew her horse on to its haunches Without looking at mo sho called tbo Innkeeper to como to her stirrup Ho wont Tho moment his back was turned I slipped away and In a twinkling was hidden by a house Two or three glumlooking follows stared at me as I passed but no ono moved and In two minutes I was clear of the village and In n halfworn track which ran through the wood and lellIf my ideas woro right to the chateau To discover the house and loam all that was to be learned about Its situation was my most

legislature has boon quite busy during tho present session and if ono bill which has already passed the house becomes a law wo will have a completely revolutionized school system The provisions of this bill briefly stated are as follows Tho county judge attorney and county school superintendent of each county will meet during next September and divide their county into four districts At the November election following ouo member of tho countyschool board is tote elected from each rict bytbe vote of the whole county These four elected members and tho superintendent will compose the county board of education This board will have power to employ all teachers levy all taxes hold all school property buy all new supplies and equipment and finally to appoint n school visitor whoso duty It wijl bo to supervise all schools visit each school once each month sign all rev ports and tako tho enumeration of tho pupils whoso homes are in tho diet tricl For this service ho receives five cents per pupil The board may also make regulations governing tho nchoolf which the teachers must obey or bo liable to dismissal by tho superintendent Regular meetings will bo hold on the first Monday in each month and may bo called but the totalnumber of days for meetings in a your cannot twentyItthe writer that a worse system under present conditions could not have been devised although this has the approval of Superinten dent Fuqua My reasons for thi opinion aro as follows First Tho school board being elected by a vote of tho whole count and not by tho district in which tho intended members reside makes it curtain that tho board will bo wholly of ono political party and composed of men who aro elected not because of fitness but because their names are on the ticket of tho party in power If each district voted for its own member men would I be moro apt to bo elected because of Hpccial fitness Second After being elected four men aro too fow to hold the respon sibility of electing the teachers of a county In my native county this would mean that each member would choose tho teachers for forty schools A fine opportunity for Graft is it notT orla moan that some man is paid five cents per pupil for taking the enumeration and signing reports In tho county re forred to above Pulaski I think there are about 8000 pupils and 100 schools This means that for 100 some man must not only take tho census but visit forty schools each month Will not tbo visiting ho docs bo of great value and will ho not bring great professional advice to tho teachers In no county will the vis itor have less than ton or fifteen schools to visit Ask any one who has dono such work what that means and sere if tho visitor will 00of any use to the schools Fourth Every teacher must obey reasonable rules

garments cast off by our boys I said to ono of the men I thought you Tenncesecans hated us Yankees so bitterly you would disdain to pick up our old clothes Ho replied 0 they will do for tho niggers to wear By my orders tho guards soon had every rag heaped upon fires deeming it best not to furnish rebel spies suitable uniforms in which to enter our lines Wo pitched our tents that evening on an old rebel encampment Hero wo made our first acquaintance with thoso army pests commonlycalled greybacks Tho rebels had U o ourselves left castoft garments which appeared to be too lousy even for niggers clothing Our modo of picketing at this time was to station a platoon out on all tho roads leading into camp and as John Morgan was retried to be scouting around Lebanon Tenn our pickets manifested great watch fulness Thu 30th tho Twentythird Kentucky and the Ninth Michigan resumed tho march southward Colonel Barnes being ordered to remain hero a few slays with the Eighth Kentucky and furnish mon and teams to cut and haul timber to rebuild Oho railroad bridge over Mill Creek recently bur ranksand file of the Eighth wore much dis pleased to bb loft behind and do drudgery as some of the officers called it while other regiments no moro experiencedlworo ordered on front whore probably fights and lame awaited them and the Eighth were just spoiling for a battle Big Bill Moore Company II remarked with much bitterness Now Colonel Mundays regiment and them long logged Michigaaders will jest go ahead and scare out all tho seccsh and wont leave a chicken or a pig in tho hull country Tho next day eighty men with teams and axes ware detailed for fatigue duty and wore early playing destruction with a fine grove of oaks A muohoxcitcd Southern gentleman named Whitmore made his appear ante and in angry tones ordered tho men to leave his promises Lieu tenant McDaniol pointed to Major Broadhus who was seated on a log The note Itlll No proposed law for many years has stirred tho country as has the rate bill That there are great in torcflta back of tho opposition to the bill is evident from the efforts made to defeat the law DoubtlC88- Ithore are railroads that have the ability to see that their best asset is a satisfied constituency But on tho other hand there aro roads that con duct their business on the principle that actuated Wm Vanderbilt when ho said Damn tho public to an appeal from some one to remember tho public in his administration of his roads Many say now that it is hard that a man cannot run his busi ness on he has a mind to This is truo in a certain sense though there are several considerations which tend to modify the general statement In the first place no man or corporation has tho right to do what ho will with his own There is a higher law than tho law of the stomach and pocket Everything that is in the hands of human beings belongs to all in a way No man can live for him self alone and still continuo to rise in the scale of life And corporation is only un association of men This is whore Rockefeller has made a great mistake While posing as a Christ inn ho has done through his corpor ntion things that link him with the boasts andsavages And in tho case of corporations such corporations as railroads in are possible only through the grant of certain privil eges of eminent domain something more is owing to the public If I ask for privileges from my fellows I must hold these privileges in such a way as at least not to harm those who have grapted them to me And a railroad that has been made possi blo by tho gUt of a right of way owes something to the public that hen given it its franchise Hero has been the source of trouble Somo of tho railroads falling into the hands of greedy and selfish men have been conducted not in the interests of the public Which has contributed BO much toward making the roads possi blo but in tho interests of those who have gained tho control of the roads enjoying a quiet smoke and told tho

Wo halted long enough to wring our stock ings arriving at Murfreeaboro at 4 oclock p in Wo marched through town in column by companies our musicians playing Yankee Doodle We saw but few of tho inhabitants They were evidently not pleased to see this second edition of Yankee troopsHero we found Colonel Dufliold with tho Ninth Michigan and the Twentythird Kentucky encamped near a largo spring southeast of town Two companies of the Seventh Pennsylvania Cavalry wore also here We remained hero nearly one month Our time was spent in drill j ins daily all thoso not required for i camp guards and picket duty The latter required 150 men and four i officers from tho Eighth daily TO BE CONTINUED 1 I sometimes by means that will not bear scrutiny For instance the I Governor of West Virginia recently wrote a letter to tho Senate of tho United States complaining of the tyranny of the railroads in his state and sent it notto his own senators who are part of the railroad gang that exploits tho state but to a sena tor from another state And one of tho things complained of in that lot ter is that the railroads refuse to act as common carrion in tho state but discriminate between tho common shipper and thoso whom they wish through business connections to fav or And this is only ono of tho many instances that can bo cited whore the railroads the very creatures of the states whore they are situated refuse to act according to the common law if not according to the statute law state and national Tho revelations made inrecent numbers of McCluros Magazine should bo road by all who wish to know what the railroads have done to arouse so much feeling against them among the people It is truo that there is another side to the question and that thero are railroads whoso management is equit able and just but it is the injustice done by tho few that makes laws necessary We arc all restricted in our relations to ono another by laws made to hold dishonest men from preying upon the public and rail roads must not expect to be exempt from tho common lot The rate bill may not belter matters but it will at I least show by its failure how thoy may be bettor and it will also serve as a warning to unscrupulous rail road officials that the people cannot be defrauded beyond a certain point WATCH AND JEWELRY REPAIRING- I will do watch and jewelry repairing for the lowest cash rates at

Issued by tbe census bureau shows tbe extent to which the relative rank of tho respective stales has changed with reference to Illiteracy An examination of the pro portion of children between ten and 14 who are unable to write shows that In 1860 six of the ten states with the least Illiteracy were eastern In 1880 three and In 1900 only two Call fornla which ranked seventh In 1871 and fourth In 1880 had fallen out of the list of states with least Illiteracy in 1900 Native whites ot foreign pa rents make the beet showing The explanation offered Is that they dwell lor the most part In the cities where the school facilities are good The aa tlve whites of native parents como next after them the foreign born Above them In percentage of Illiteracy are the Japanese the Chinese negroes and Indians In the order named Ui lo 18 the negroes urq more illiterate than Indians but gain tbe advantage after that age It appears that worn en are more Illiterate than men but girls less so than boys This Is In terpreted to imply that 20 years ago girls had greater educational advan tages than boys but since that time conditions have been reversed In 1890 the advantage enjoyed by the girls extended from ten to 19 now it runs from ten to 24 The authors ol the bulletin consider that this points to the time when females of all ages will be less Illiterate than males A commentary on tbe present method ot estimating progress In terms of what Is called education has been made by the president of the Idaho Industrial Institute He gives as his opinion that the average college graduato is a complete failure when called on to make his living by manual labor and that the whole educational system tends to create a feeling of caste Ho said further Many prominent em ployers have told me that the poorest recommendation a young man can bring Is a college diploma He ad vocates that at least half of the stu dents time should be devoted to the learning of a manual trade After A dinner

is a quality of life it Is an atti tude of the soul it is a condition of being The spiritual world is where God is Where is God Seated on a glorious throne in a place called Heaven That is a childs notion of God God is spirit God is universal presence God is the soul of the universe God is immanent in His world God is here there elsewhere and ever where Whenever or wherever the soul is conscious of God there is the spiritual world God is as much here as anywhere He never was or never shall be in any place more than He is here The ground whereon thou standest brother man is holy ground The

is in all men a nerve of spiritual sensation In some men it is alive and active in others it is dormant almost dead In all of us this spiritual faculty needs quickening educating developing You might call this capacity for the spiritual the sixth sense It is a sort of window of the soul a kind of chord that vibrates when we arc sensible of the spiritual As yet this organ of spiritual knowl edge is in a rudimentary condition Some men do not even know that they possess it In almost all of us ninetenth of this organ lies idlePerhaps when this organ of knowledge becomes keen and send tive enough we can converse with those whom we have loved and lost awhile We arc ridiculously ignorant of the powers in us The spiritual world is not far away It is all about us The dear ones that have departed may be neater than we think They nay wish- to communicate with us but we arc too stupid Many things arc unknown to us not because of the essential unknownbleucss of the thing but because the faculty by

is even moving I further in its feelings and asking whether it should allow any person anywhere on earth to perish by the cruelty of others We even recognize that the right to life somehow implies a certain equipment for life by the education we feel compelled to give the young and by the efforts we put forward to enlarge the life of our fellowmenAnd it is that the ancient precept Thou shall do

MACHINERY Experience of One Farmer Proves That in This Day It Is Most Economical I have used a sheep shearisg ma chino for the past five or six years writes a correspondent of the llural Now Yorker They hare boon very much Improved In that tlmo The first knife or dippers that I had very soon got clogged and did not do good work on sheep that had fine or oily wool or had any wrinkles Tho one I now have used on the same machine will clip any kind of a sheep or wool Now as to the direct question Has the machine any advantage over handwork So long as we had the old fashioned shearers who could turn oft 30 to 49 Jeep a day well sheared I had no nllu eta machine As the old men died off or were unable to shear any longer and because of the scarcity of sheep few young men took up shearing It became a problem to know how to got the snoop well and econom ically sheared The men who were unused to It not only cut the sheep and tangled up the wool but they would shear only a few sheep per day I which made It expensive For this reason I put In a machine Any man j who Is at all handy soon learns how ImporItantsheep badly with the edge of the clip pen but soon sees the danger and I avoids It With the shears the sheep In the hands of such a man Is covered I with Illtlo cuts I find that after a little practice n man will shear a sheep every IS or 20 minutes and their bod lea will be as smooth as a wellclipped horse Of course It takes another man to turn the crank so It Is not so much of a Unto saver In the hands of a novice but a skilled man or an old shearer who knows how to handle sheep will average better than a ah 0I every ton minutes The man I turns can be a cheap hand who could in no case use the shears I propose mylonespray engine to urlve the machine It Is not necessary us some have sup posed to use a shears to finish or trim the legs The same power with a dlf ferent knife ran be used to clip horses or thn shearing clippers OlIn be used on a hortocllpplng machine UKe

happinessScripture Lesson Matthew D11C Golden Text Blessed are thQ pure In heart for they shall see God Jesus a Preacher of Happiness The theme of Christs first sermon was happiness Ho began His mis Lion with a benediction Thoroughly understanding the needs of the hUe man heart He set about answering Its oupreme question What Is Happiness TodaIquest of happiness Happiness Hard to Define It II clear that Jesus attempted to define happiness Indeed It Is a ques tlon whether it can or cannot be de termIin the life of another Jesus deals with the essential conditions of happt liesconditions which are not pecu liar or limited to any one class of so clety but which may be characteristic notIspiritual and thus are within the reach of all men Who Mav De Happy r What surprises us as we read the Sermon on the Mount Is the fact that Jesus makes happiness to spring from such an unexpected source The very persons whoso names we would natur ally expect to find In a cataloguo of happy people are not mentioned here The great Teacher did not say Blessed are the rich the noble the mighty the famous the gifted the crowned the titled Jesus did not pronounce those people happy for the simple reason that a great part of the time these things bring much misery In their trail and there Is abundant evidence to prove that myriads of peo pIe are happy who possess none of these socalled dignities Christ struck at the very root of blessedness Tho True Secret of Happiness In the first place Jesus speaks of JIll people as being blessed not happy Blessedness Is a deeper word than happiness Usually we who are shortsighted speak Of people as being happy whoa the world goes well with them Yet even we would hesitate very often before pronouncing such people blessed Happiness Is out ward and transitory blessedness Is In ward and abiding Outward conditions such as prosperity or adversity cannot take It away Good fortune Is not blessedness but good character Is Happiness Consists in Being Not having What a man Is not what ho has what he Is in himself not what he does his character not his possessions determines his happiness Blessedness the kingdom of Heaven Is founded upon character The good man Is tho happy and blessed man The Poor In Spirit Are Blessed Jesus did not say Blessed are the poor poverty In Itself no more than riches Is a bless- Ing Indeed It may be a curse and the source of much unhappiness No benediction Is here placed upon pov arty as such It la not the beggar that Is blessed It Is the poor In spirit The humble man the man who places no confidence In his own good works but pleads spiritual poverty the man who comes to Christ for salvation with this plea upon hit lips Nothing In my hands I bring Simply to Thy cross I cling Naked come to Thee for dress Helpless look to Thee for grace Those who mourn because of their spiritual poverty are blessed Such mourning shall find comfort from God This does not mean Blessed Is every one that weeps The blessing la for those who weep over their sins Of course God comforts Ills people when they mourn for other causes too Tho meek too am blessed The man submissive to the will and purpose of God for Him In the world will- always bo happy Indeed unhappiness comes because we rebel against that will The meek man Is the man who Is brokenln to do the will 01 GodTho man who Is pure lo heart as well as In life will find happiness In that condition Purity In thought and In secret as well as In act and In pub- lIc Is demanded for happiness The impure man Is never tho happy man Impurity Is hell and no man Is happy In hell erayIing after a life of personal holiness who has a passion akin to hunger and thirst after a godly life will be blessed Indeed If we seek righteous ness rather than happiness we shall certainly find happiness through our righteousness The capacity for pity the ablllly to sympathize tho practice of show- Ing mercy is an essential profound for happiness Tho hardhearted man ill not u happy man The ability and capacity to suffer fur ir htoousness sake Is one of the conditions of haplpnesg The apostles I rejoiced that they were worthy to I surfer for Ills

of tho careful estimate made by Professor Mlgoulln one of the foremost econo mists of Russia who places the direct loss from mob disorder at 175000000 Professor Mlgoulln attributes to the disorders at Baku tho great oil pro ducing district of the empire which was devastated by fire an actual loss of 50000000 estates here and there through the ravaged country destroy ed by the peasantry represented 25 000000 factories sugar mills and other manufacturing plants in provin cial districts burned by mobs made up a loss of 20000000 the Incendiary burning of the port of Odessa involved a loss of 25000000 wholesale pillag lug of 60 towns and villages in the month of October alone led to the de struction of 30000000 of property while warships government stores and property and houses destroyed by cannonade Involved another 125000 000 bringing the total from these Items alone to 175000000 But it should be noted these are the direct losses the firsthand destruction brought about by the revolutionary forces In the wake of this destruction and the unsettlement fol lowing It there were collateral losses which far overtopped this total Thus the toes to the railway administration is put at 20000000 during the first strike in October the loss of wages to productive amount to at least 100000000 more while beyond these matters but still arising from the great strike disturbances are to
