for tho moment from contemplation of political graft corruption atd scandal in San Francisco and PlUburg and from Tariff deals and local primaries to distant Japan where the natives are enjoying all the benefits of civilization Among tho chlcfeot of theso Is getting a 6 good price for your honor and tree l chery to tho o who have trusted you Nine members of tho Japanese Con gress have been arrested on charges which are said to Implicate them In bribery on behalf of tho Japan Su gar Co The fact that these men have gut caught shows that Japan U still a little behind tho times but the fact that they did It shows how rapidly she is approaching our standard of public morality REVOLT IN TURKEY The revolt In Turkey mentioned last week IA much worse and It is at cat possible rithe government will be overthrown and tho Sultan killed It will be remembered that about six months ago there was a reform in Turkey and a constitution was given and a Congress assembled Power passed sway from tho Liberals or Sultan party Into tho hands of the Young Turks or reform party But tho Young Turks had no experience and madn some mistakes and tho Liberals lay low and waited Finally they got their chance and Joining with some reformers who wanted to go a little slower than tho Young Turks overthrew tho Committee which was running things for tho latter party The Young Turks were driven out of the capital and it looked IUI if the Liberals would hold the power But the Young Turks are raising the country troops are march- Ing on Constantinople and it looks as If there was a real civil win coming on In tho general excitement or perhaps In order to make tho European powers Interfere and save tho Sultan massacres of Chris tian have been begun in Armenia Thousands have been killed and among the dead ore at least two American missionaries Warships have been sent to land sailors and protect foreigners STEALING BREAD An Individual named James A Patten has during the last week succeeded In putting his hand Into the pockets of all of us who use wheat or wheat products and In taking from each a small amount of money The total amount so taken has enriched him over 5000000 Ills friends who were per mUted to help have also benefited a good deal Tho method by which Mr Patten worked this pleasant little game which will result in every poor child In this country going a little bit hungrier and In those of us who have enough to eat going without something we might have bad is vrhal is known as a corner It is customary for speculators to gamble on the price of wheat and when the deal Is closed simply pay over the differ enco in money without handling any grain For instance one man promises to sell another a thousand bu shels ot wheat in May at a certain price When tho time comes If tho wheat Is selling on tho market below that price then the buyer los H money as he could have bought cheaper from some one else than from tlW man he bargained with If however wheat Is selling for more than tho price agreed on the seller loses for bo could have got more from some one else But neither ever turns over the wheatthey sim ply figure out how much the deal Continued on Fourth Pug y 2iJ M1 GIVES 25000 Dr D K Pearsons Makes Provision for Fine Now Dormitory for College MenIt Will be Brick and Have Rooms for at Least 120 Boys Great enthusiasm was caused in tho College

generosity FINE TEMPERANCE SPEECH One of tho best temperance addresses ever delivered hero was given by the Rev M J Fanning in the Chapel Monday night As a result of his address 226 persons signed the pledge On his last visit three years ago Mr Fanning secured 266 pledges mak lug a total in this town of 492 III edges duo to his work Tho large audience which gathered showed how pleasantly Berca remembered the speaker and It may be safely predicted that 1C he comes again the crowd will even belargerAfter band had played a number of selections Prof Ellis with a few well chosen remarks Introduced Mr Fanning The latter Is a man of strong personality He was greeted with a great burst of applause and quickly put himself In touch with the audience by his ready wit and earn estness In going straight to the sub- Ject of his address lIe said that intemperance is the greatest foe of tho church of Christ because It roba the church of means ant members The last report ot the Commission of Internal Revenue shows that the people of the United States have paid 12245000000 to the saloon In a single year since the govern ment commission reports only on the liquor that is taxed the figures are necessarily lower than they would be if they could count Illicit whiskey Mr Fanning from his own Investigations makes the figure 2570000000 While no claim Is made that all this money would go to the church It is self evident that a great deal of it would because the saloon robs the church of Its members Statistics show that in England alone the church loses 30 000 members annually on account of whiskey If these men stayed In the church some ot the money they now pay to the saloon they would have put In the church- Intemperance Is a foe to the home Mr Fanning continued It has no guide but Its greed and seeks to seize every victim which comes Into its power The moral desolation caused by whiskey Is ruining our homesIt a foe to our country The vlr tuo and intelligence ot the people constitute the cornerstone ot the re public Any thing which lets down virtue and lessens Intelligence undermines the republic Whiskey stands In the way of all civic and political reform Mr Fannln raid he was pleased at ths stand tho temperance people of Kentucky aro taking in pushing prohibition thru constitutional amendment an I not thru statutory legislation He sCold that many states that have been tying county option have quit that because they tellovo state prohibition YY kM n =N IIL ITHE BEATEN REFORMER During the last few years there has been going on a fight for the reform of the wellentrenched political abuses and corruption which honeycomb our civic life In city state and national politics alike we rather suddenly waked some years ago to find that many of our office holders were among our least desirable citizens and that there were men in the highest positions of trust who are utterly unworthy of any trust whatever Everywhere small groups of reformers went to workAfter several years we are hardly able to see that they have ever won a victory at the polls The professional politicians are still en trenched in one New Jersey city the fifth successive defeat has been recorded in New York there have been but two victories in years and the cry is beginning to go up that it is not worth while that the people prefer corruption and that reform is beaten It is easy to understand how a man who has worked more or less sincerely for reform and the good of the people will feel when he has been beaten by the combined forces of corruption and ignorance It is not pleasant to be beaten and with our theory that the majority is right it is still harder to have our principles repudiated by the people One is likely to feel that the people are against reform and that there is nothing worth while to keep one at such a thankless task And yet tho the reformers are almost always beaten the reforms almost always win In the New Jersey town mentioned every one of the reforms advocated ten years ago has been adopted by the practical politicians themselves What greater victory could there be than to have even the worstand victoriousenemies confess the justice of winningbeetill now the city is really well governed tho there is not a reformer in office The politicians have been forced to adopt the reforms they know that the people educated by the reformers will demand what is right and the beaten reformers see their victorious foes doing the very things they have fought for It is always so with an honest brave fight for the right The right wins in the end tho many and many a man who has fought for the right has been beaten No right thing has ever failed nor will it ever fail Tho beaten again and again it will in the end have the lastingdefeatfor for years by men who saw nothing of its success by men who gave their lives and happiness in the fightby men who were willing to be defeated for the sake of the right they loved And oven while the fight is going on there are always signs of victory A clean honest fight educates the voters They may not believe what the reformer says and they may bury him by their ballots but they have heard the truth and by and by when the dangers be has warned against begin to appear they will remember and turn against their betrayers And the victors in a fight of that kind they are forced to be better officials They know that the people are wiser and they know that if the reformers prophecies come true the voters will turn at the next election And if a vigilant reformer is always ready to watch for their crimes and publish them abroad the bravest of them will be careful about doing things which cannot stand the JlghtTho the final victory for the right may be years away still no good fight goes even for a time unrewarded there is complete victory to the distance and a real reward at hand Of course there are many men who will say that this reward is not worth working for They will tell ytiu that a distinct victory when they may be dead does not strike them as much of a comfort and that they cannot see the good of working for reforms which some one else will be allowed to carry out They insist that they must share the proceeds or they will not work It is on this point that there test of the sincerity of a re former comes Many a man has started out on the right side be cause he thought he could make the most out of that side It was not the right he loved but himself And when he has been beaten fightingforplace where the immediate profits are largest But the real man is willing to forget himself and setting aside givenhimhis whole soul is centered on the fight he is making like a soldier in battle and tho be fall he will drop contented knowing that his side will win in the end Such men are the real leaders of our race of our civilization The more truly they lead the less likely are they to win popular ap plause the farther they are in advance the fewer will appreciate them But their principles and their fight will be recognized long after their opponents have been forgotton or stuck up as scarecrows in the field of history and their work will become part of the fabric of our civilization the heritage of the race Surely for any man that has in him a single spark of real man hood there can be no moments doubt which side of the fight he will take Surely such a man tho beaten will not despair nor seek comfort For he knows that in the end complete victory shall be with him and that even now the fruits of the victory are beginning to be reaped But the man who has stolen victory the corruptionist and thief be may well tremble and despair because for him the future surely holds defeat here and hereafter Is to much better Georgia Alabama and South Carolina have changed recently and Florida Arksanas Missouri and Utah aro fighting for it One- reasen ho said for preferring state prohibition to county option Is that the liquor men prefer county option Wo should have state prohibition by amendment to the constitution rather than by statutory legislation Mr Fanning argues because a con stitutional amendment could not be changed without the direct vote of the people Statutes can be repealed Voting for a prohibition amendment too would harmonize the temperance voters of the state as nothing else willMr Fanning answered the argument that the money from internal revenue was needed for the educational sys tem by comparing Kansas a prohibi tion stato with Kentucky Kentucky has 707827 larger population than Kansas an i 240000 more children ot school age The average in Kansas shows that 65 per cent ot the children go to school 1455 days ot the yrtr white only 43 per cent In Ken tscky go 90 ays In Kansas there arc 12036 teachers for the common schools with 3855000 salaries Ken tucky has 10449 teachers with 2 219000 salaries There are 73 high J1f I tj schools in Kentucky with 6675 stu dents and 291 high schools In Kansas with 20249 students Kansas has 57 Normal schools with 1502 Students against Kentuckys two schools with 127 students Kentucky has 10 unl versities and colleges with 3382 stu dents and 358 professors while Kansas has 20 colleges with 6773 students and 662 profecsors The revenue is not needed for tho government The money is paid out by us the people and the revenue is for us the people But the saloon keepers average annual receipts are 8000 while ho pays 350 license That prohibition does prohibit In Maine wo shown in quotations from Bishop Bowman James O Blaine and the Hon Nell Dow There are two ways to bring prohibition In the United States Mr Fan ning said In closing to take the sal oon from men and to take men from the saloon One of the most effective ways to keep men from the saloons Is to get them to sign pledges While the band played pledges were passed and 226 people signed Which U Worse Women say lots of things they dont think and men think lots of things they wouldnt dare say I IN WASHINGTON No Danger of Long Wheat Famine Secy Wilson SaysBig Things May Happen in Capitol Soon Tariff Commission Likely Our Weekly Letter Washington D C April 19 1909 The United States Agriculture De partment hotly denies that there is any danger of continued high prices for wheat Secretary Wilson believes that the wheatgrowing possibilities of the country have hardly been touched as yet He points out that in New England where the land Is extremely poor the average yield of wheat per acre is much higher than in the West where the soil Is rich There have been very wasteful methods of wheat raising The Department ot Agriculture has for many years estimated the amount of wheat which would be grown each year and have never missed it more than from five to ten per cent Their esti mate this year is that the production Is about the same as last year If that Is the case the socalled wheat corner ot James A Patten will soon collapse and the price of wheat will go down to the neighborhood of a dollar The higher the price of wheat the more people will use cornI Instead of wheat and the higher will be the price paid for corn This looks good for the southern farmer There have been rumors that tho Government would bring suit against Patten under the antitrust law but Attorney General Wickersham does not think that the law would Justify ouch a suit- SOMETHING DOING A number ot big things seem about tohappenThis has made It seem pro bable that an Income tax law will be passed In connection with the tariff bin which no one could have foreseen a week ago On Thursday Senator Bailey of Texas introduced an amendment providing for a tax of three per cent on all Incomes over 4000 a year He made a great speech too Baileys character nlay not be what it should but his head Is one of the best the Democrats can boast It appears that the Democrats are solidly In favor of the tax and that there are enough Republicans who will vote for it so that it can be passed even against the will of the Senate leaders Under these circum stances the leaders are expected to do the wise act ot introducing an Income tax amendment of their own giving the glory for the measure to the party which It belongs the Re publican This week has made it seem pro bable too1 that America will have a tariff commission like Germany Japan and other progressive countries While it Is true that Congress ought to do the deciding of all important questions in regard to the tariff still Congress ought to be spared the work of collecting the material on which those decisions are based Ot course tho danger is that the clerks of the Commission will be bribed to make the figures show that manufacturers need protection when they really do not But there are a sufficient number of honest men working in the Government departments today who have like opportunities to betray facts or mlstort figures and are not doing It so that an honest tariff commission Is an unquestioned possibility Senator Aldrich and Mr Taft both seem to be turning toward the tariff commission plan Senator Cummins of Iowa who by the way is making a rather favorable impression now by his energetic yet welljudged activities introduced a bill for such a commission this week as did also Senator Beverldge MORE MONEY NEEDED One reason for the favorable recep lon which is given to the Income tax is the fact that the Aldrich Bill will not yield money enough to ke6p the country going without going Into debt by Issuing bonds There has been appointed a committee of tho Senate on cutting down expenses in all the Governments work under Senator Hemenway but this committee is not very hopeful of saving a great deal In the way The income tax would bring In something like sixty million dollars a year The legislators are going at the tarltt rather slowly This Is a good thing A poorly made tariff which would throw the country into a spasm next election and necesslate the Bong of the work all over again would be a great misfortune

next year and the market will be so glutt ed that the price will go way down and they will all lose Only once In a while some thing like the failure of the crop somewhere else saves them This is what Is happening to tobccoln Kentucky Last year atiter a terrible fight the tobacco was sold out at a fancy price This year every man that can is going to plant tobacco At the same time Connecticut and other states which enlarged their tobacco fields last year to make ap for the shortage caused by the Kentucky troubles are planting heavily and it now looks as If the years tobacco crop would be the largest ever raised This will probably mean that the price will be the lowest on record for the trusts cannot be forced Into paying a high price when there Is plenty that It can get cheap Watch for

SmlthHlr Voice Sank PortentouslyWas a Trained Nurse SYNOPSIS The story opens at Harvard where Col Rupert Winter U B A viI lUng saw the suicide of young Mercer lie met Gary Mercer brother of the dead student Three years later In Chicago in 1SOG Col Winter over heard Cary Mercer apparently planning to kidnap Archie the colonels ward and to gain possession of Aunt Rebecca Win ters millions A Miss Smith was men tioned apparently as a conspirator WIn- ter unexpectedly met a relative Mrs Mllllcent Melville who told him that hIs Aunt Rebecca Archie and tho latters nurse Miss Janet Smith were to leave for the west with the colonel and Mrs Melville CHAPTER I Continued Weve been worried a good deal pursued Mrs Melville about the way Aunt Rebecca has acted She wouldntt stay in Fairport where we could have some influence over her She was al ways going south or going to the sea shore or going somewhere Sometimes I suspect Miss Smith made her to keep her away from us you know Well as long as I have known Aunt Rebeccaanyhow ever since Uncle Archibald died she has been restless and flying about Not as she is now And then she only had her maid Oh yes Randall shes faithful as they make em What does she say about Miss Smith Bertie shes won over Randall Randall swears by her Ob ahoss deepSeems to be But excuse me whats your game Millicent How do you mean to protect our aged kinswoman and Incidentally of course the Winter fortune- I shall watch Bertie I shall be on my guard every waking hour That deluded old woman Is in more danger perhaps than you dream As how Miss Smlthher voice sank par tenlouslywas n trained nurse What harm does that do unless you think she would know too much about poisons The colonel laughed Its no laughing matter Bertie Re becca Is so rich and this other woman Is so poor and In my estimation so ambitious I make no insinuations I only say she needs watching You may be right about that said the colonel thoughtfully There is Haley and the boy for your bags Tho boy picked up the big dress suit case the smaller dresssuit case and the hat case ho grabbed the bundle of cloaks the case of umbrel las and the lizardskin bag Dubious ly ho eyed the colonels luggage as ho tried to disengage a finger Nlver molnd young feller called Haley peremptorily whisking away the nearest piece Ill help you a bit with yours instead youve a load aural Mrs Melville explained in an under tone I take all the handluggage I possibly can the overweight charges aro wicked Haley they wont let you inside without a ticket objected ttio colonel But Haley unheeding strode on ahead of the staggering youth I have an English bathtub locked of course and pocked with things but he has put that in the car said Mrs Melville Certainly said the colonel absently I ho was thinking Mrs Win ter the boy Miss Smith how ridicu lously complete Decidedly some- thIng will bear watching CHAPTER II Aunt Rebecca No sooner was Mrs Melvlllo ushered Into her section than the colonel went through the train Ho was not so suspicious as he told himself he might have been with such a dovetailing of circumstances into his accidentally captured information he couldnt yet read villainy on that college lads frank face But no reason therefore to neglect precautions Hope the best of men and prepare for tho worst was the old campaigners mottoA walk through the cars showed him no signs of the two men It was a tolerably complete Inspection too There was only one drnwing room or stateroom of which he did not manage to get a glimpsethe closed room be- Ing the property of a very great finan cial magnate whose private car was waiting for him In Denver His door was fast and the click of the typewriter announced the tireless industry of our rulers But if he did not find the college boy or the man with the moles ho did get a surprise for his walk namely the sight of the family of Haley and Haley himself beside their trig bat tered luggage In a section of the car next his own Mrs Haley turned a guilty red while Haley essayed a stolid demeanor What does this mean 1 demanded the colonelHaley he would have to go with you colonel replied Mrs Haley who had timid wide blue eyes and the voice of a bird but a courage un der her panic as birds have too when their nests are in peril Weve rinted the house to a good man wlih grownup children and Haley can get a Job If you wont want him Yls sor mumbled Haley He was standing at attention as was his wife the toddling Nora being held in the posture of respect on the plush scat And I suppose you took the furni ture money to buy tickets Yls sor And youre bound to go with me Yls sor said Haley You ought to be ashamed of your self sergeant said the colonel but he was glad at the heart of him for this mutinous loyalty Yes sor said Haley Well slnco you are here I engage you from today you understand Yls sor said Haley Mrs Haley whimpered a blessing but the only change in tan soldier was that his mill tary stolidity became natural and real Instead of forced Sit down on this seat over here with mo and Ill tell you wbat I want You ftufl lotting me say goodby to you I didnt want to take the liberty sor but you made me

want you to bo on the watch for two men thereupon the colonel described his men laying special stress on tho moles on tho faco of one and the others dimple Having sot Haley his tasks he went back to his car In better spirits By this time the train was moving Ho had seen his kinswoman and her party enter and ho found the object of Mrs Melvilles darksomo warnings sitting with a slender lad In the main body of the car Aunt Rebecca was In the drawing room her maid with her Mrs Melville who had already revealed her presence sat across the aisle She presented tho colonel at onceMiss Smith did not look formidable she looked nice thought the colonel She was of medium height she was obviously plump although well proportioned her presence had an effect of radiant cleanliness her eyes were so luminous and her teeth so fine and her white shirt waist so Immaculate There was about her a certain soft il lamination of cheerfulness and at the same time a restful repose she moved In a leisurely fashion and she sat perfectly still I never saw any one who looked less of an adventuress Win ter was thinking as ho bowed Then swiftly his glance went to the lad a pale young fellow with hazel eyes and a long slim band which felt cold The boy made a little Inarticulate sound In his throat and blushed when Col Winter addressed him But he looked the brighter for the blush It was not a plain taco rather an in teresting one in spite of its listlessness and Us sickly pallor Its oval was purely cut the delicate mouth was closed firmly enough and the hazel eyes with their long lashes would be beautiful were they not so veiled lIe has tho Winter mouth at least noted tho colonel lie felt a throb at his heart Had his own boy lived the baby that died when It was born he would be only a year older than ArchIe At least this boy was of his ownblood Without father or mother but not alone In the world and If any danger menaced not without defenders The depression which had enveloped him lifted DS mist before the sun burned away by the mere thought of possible difficulties We will see If any ono swindles you out of your share said Rupert Winter compressing tho Win ter mouth more firmly or If those gentlemanly kidnapers mean you His ebbing suspicion of the boys companion revived ho would boon his guard all right Aunt Rebecca wants to see you Mrs Melville suggested She Is in the drawing room with her solitaire Still playing Penelopes Web Oh sht always comes back to It But she plays bridge too Rupert I hear your game Is a wonder Archies been learning so he could play with youGood for Archlohe shot a glance and a smile at the lads redden ing facewell have a game Lord I wish he didnt look quito so ladylike he was grumbling within as he dutifully made his way to his aunts presence Tho electric lights flooded the flimsy railway table on which were spread rows of small sized cards An elderly lady of quality was musing over the pasteboard rows A lady of qualitythat was distinctly the phrase to catch ones fancy at tho first glimpse of Mrs Winter Not an aged lady either for even at SO that ele gantly molded slim figure that abun dance of silvery hair parted In the middle and growing thickly on each side In natures own fashion which art can not counterfeit as well as softly puffed and massed above that ex quisitely colored and textured skin strangely smooth for her years with tiny wrinkles of humor to be sure about the oycs but with cheeks and skin unmarred that fine firmly carved profile thoso black eyebrows and lashes and still brilliant dark eyes most of all that erect alert dainty carriage gave no impression of ago but they all and their accessories of toilet and manner and a little prim touch of an older more reticent day in both dress and bearing recalled the last century phrase- A soft gray bunch of chinchilla fur lay where she bad slipped it on her soft gray skirts ope hand rested In the furher left handand on tho third finger were the only rings which she wore a band of gold worn by CO years and a wonderful ruby wherein at least such was Ruperts phantasy a writhing flame was hold captive by Its guard of diamond icicles The same rings admired by her nephew ever since he was a cadetjust the same smiling Inscrutable highbred unchanging old dame Uood evening Aunt Rebecca not a daf older said tho colonel Oood evening Bertie returned the lady extending a hand over the cards excuse my not rising to greet you I might joggle tho cards Of course Im not a day older I dont darn to R grow older at my age Sit down Im extremely glad to see you Ive a heap to talk to you about Do you mind If I run this game through first The colonel didnt mind Ho raised the proffered hand to his lips such homago seemed quite the most natural act in the world with Mrs Winter And ho unobtrusively edged his own lean and wiry person into the vacant seat opposite her How far are you going said she after a few moves of the cards My ticket says Los Angeles but it had to say something so I chose Los Angeles for luck Im an irre sponsible tramp now you know and I may drop oft almost anywhere You are for southern California arent youEventually but wo shall stop at San Francisco for two or three weeksDo you mind If I stop off with you I want to got acquainted with my ward said the colonel Thats a good Idea Bertie lie seems rather out of sorts you arent worried aboutwell tubercu losis or that sort of thing- I am worried about just that nort of thing although the doctor says nothing organic at nil Is the matter with him but ho Is too melancholy for a boy he needs rousing losing his father and mother In one year you know and ho was devoted to them I cant quite make him out Bertie he hasnt the Winter temperament I suppose ho has a legal right to his mothers nature but it Is very annoy ing It makes him so much harder to understandnot that she wasnt a good woman who made Tom happy but sho wasnt a Winter However Janet line brightened him up consider ably youve seen Janet Miss Smith What do you think of her Winter said honestly that she was very nicelooking and that sho looked right capable ho fell into tho Idiom of his youth sometimes whoa with a southernerShe said Aunt Rebecca Whoro did you find her asked the colonel carelessly Inspecting tho cards thoughtMillicent the particulars She was nurse secre tary companion and diet cook to Cousin Angola Nelson when she died I got her Lucky for me So I should judge commented tho colonel politely- I presume 11 111 cent has told you that she is an adventuress and after my money and a heap more

you are not getting rich by selling a 1000 farm for JSOO even if you do get the cash In your pocket- Rotation not only brings the largest returns but It Increases the value of the land It makes possible the farming on some piece of land for hundreds of years without a rest and at the end the soil will be bet ter than it was in the beginning Why Is this possible Because of the ten or more food elements that a r plant uses only three are scarce and costly Nitrogen Phosphorus and Potassium In buying fertilizers wo find that nitrogen costs about 16 cts a pound the other two 4 and 5 cts Corn uses a large amount of nitrogen and a small amount of the less costly elements We see why all plants that use a large amount ot nitrogen are hard on the soil It has been found that a certain kind of plants known as legumes have the power of taking nitrogen out of the air and putting It Into the soil Examples of such plants are Red clover Crimson clover Japan clover Alsike clover Alfalfa Soy- Beans Cow peas and others Now If wo follow or precede corn with a le gume It will put In the soil a large amount of the costly element nltro gen and keep the supply from runn ing short Rotation means

British submarines are taught how to use a safety helmet and waterproof Jacket designed to save them In case the submarine on which they are engaged Is sunk The men are taught in n special tank and are lowered Into the water In a kind of diving bell They learn to put on the helmet and Jacketwhich carry a store of air capable of being used over and over again and which can be put on In 30 secondsand also how to leave tho sunken vessel i Clothing and Temperature The whole theory ot clothing and Its relation to temperatures is condensed by Dr Wachenhelm la the following paragraph which will probably sug gest where many mysterious colds come from Tho nude body of a healthy adult when at rest maintains Its normal warmth of 99 degrees most easily at an air temperature of about 80 this may be called the indifferent temperature and Is reduced by very byheavygrees under these circumstances we feel Just comfortable when lying down or otherwise Inactive The Jew In History Long before Socrates taught philosophy or before Herodotus wrote his tory Israel had an organized civiliza tlon It has literature before most na tions had letters and art while other nations knew only war and savagery Draper says that they the Jews were our factors and bankers before we knew how to read Permanent Superstition Human credulity seems to be a per manent fact independent of civiliza tion ot education and of the progress of mankind The astrologer or the witch may be discredited but in their place arise the palmist and theoso phlst to minister to human credulity IIII IIIGreatest Sunrise of Ages By REV A C DIXON D D PsetoroftheCYicqoAreNoodyoCherc1CAlaee Ao the sun riser everything in the world adjusts it self to the great event The birds of the day awake and begin to sing The birds and beasts of the night hie away to their dens and hollow treesW- orkingmen rise from their sleep and start for their places of toll Farmers hear Its cell and go about their work Business men may sleep later but the rising sun soon drives them to their banks stores and factories Moon and stars which have made the night glorious are now out of commission Grass flower shrub and tree feel the touch of the warm rays and revive Every sunrise is truly a great event In tho history of the world though our familiarity with it may cause us to overlook Its impor tance It regulates tho movements of kings In their palaces generals at the head of armies parliaments and legislatures There is nothing hid from the heat thereof Every kind of life animate and Inanimate wel comes Its genial warmth and rejoices In Its quickening power The birth of Jesus was a sunrise upon the world and all worlds adjust ed themselves to It It Is interesting to trace the rise ot this Sun of right eousness In prophecy The promise that the seed of the woman should bruise the serpents head Is the first gleam of light In tho east The prom ise to Abraham that in his seed all the families of the forth should be blessed is a brightening of the eastern sky IdeaIchapter of Isaiah we are In the morn- Ing twilight John the Baptist though a burning and shining light Is only the morning star proclaiming that the sunrise Is near The birth of Jesus wakes up Herod that wild beast of darkness who represents the pagan world powers Herod seeks to kill him but his efforts are like shooting arrows at the rising sun Children are slain and parents suffer but the sun shines on World powers down the ages have conspired to blot this sun out of the heavens But these world powers have passed away like mist before the sun which shines all the more brightly Learning and Wealth frojntheof learning and wealth to Christ They have seen his star In the east and have come to worship him Though bewildered on their arrival in Jerusalem they persist In their search until they find the Child before whom they bow with their gifts of gold frankincense and myrrh There Is a yearning in the human heart which nothing but God can satisfy Neither the study of tie stars nor the speculations of phil os ophy will satisfy It The knowledge I of the greatest things God has made Is no substitute for the knowledge of God Indeed every star would lead us back to Its creator and the more we know of the works of God the more we desire to know God whose wis dom power and love they display Ignorance Is not the mother of de notion but of superstition All Should Lead to God Everyone who has tried to write poetry with God eliminated has been a failure and the explanation Is easy The true poet interprets things as they are and any system of poetry or phil osophy which Ignores God Is unnat ural shallow and artificial Astron omy botany physiology history and philosophy Join with religion In leading us to God and when like the wise orientals we become earnest and persistent In our search for God we will wend our way with them to the manger In Bethlehem and see there tho mystery of the agesGod Incar nate In a babe born of a virgin moth er and our reason will Join with our sense of soul need In prompting us to fall before him In worship for It Is reasonable that God if ho wishes to lift man from sin to purity should bo come himself a pure man among men It was also fitting that these wise men should lay their wealth at the feet of Jesus As God Incarnate ho owns all we have by right of crea tion he owns us by right of redemp tion We are his stewards We do business on his capital The proper place for us and our possessions Is at his feet These wise mon brought frankin tense and myrrh with their gold Frankincense was an aromatic resin which filled the air with its perfume and symbolized praise Myrrh was a bitter substance which Is a good sym bol of repentance Gold Is acceptable to Christ only when we bring It with repentance and praise The Real White Slave The real white slave is the wife of the poor drunkard declared Judge McKenzie Cleland before the Evanston Mens club In a recent address The blackest page in American history will be the page telling of our treatment of the drunkard that unfortunate who 1s not a criminal but whom we make one by locking him up The criminal courts are at least 1000 years

I speak of the present as an earnest of the future It we should attempt a list ot the qualities of our subject who will no doubt enjoy being dissected and classified in this present company the result would I think run something like this form A to Z For surely we expect an A Z man to be ArdentBuoyant CapableDevoted EarnestIiFaithful Generous Hospitable IndustriousJoyful Kind LoyalManly NeighborlyOpenhearted Pure Quixotic sometimes Riotous never SteadfastTrue Useful VeraciousWitty Xcellent qualities too many to mention will become his also as he solves the problems of life YouthfulZealous in every good word and workAgain we ask what should a friend of the A Z man expect of him What do I expect after twelve years of intimate friendship A friendship which thro these years has been one ot the rarest privileges ot my life I expect of the A Z man joy In his work- lie does not begin the day with a glum face nor end It disgruntled with all the world For him the sun rises with a new splendor each day Its burdens are borne with a smile and Its hours bring continual cheer The Bliss of Growth The Glory of Action are his lie is continually at work and his work brings him the greatest possible reward joy in doing It Ills cheer Is contagious As ho goes along tho street with gay cap and cherry whistle the small boy spins his top the more merrily The weary discouraged toller has a pleasant thought which lasts thro hours of drudgery and even the dingy members of the sidewalk com mittee who are sure that everything even the weather Is bound to turn out wrong begin to say that It may be a pleasant day after all He carries cheer with him Into the classroom and makes the teachers days bright and toll easy and he can well of a fail write a jolly rhyme as ure as ot success I expect too that the A Z man will be true In friendship I am not sure that his friends will always prove worthy I sadly fear that In some of them he will have keen disappointment and bitter suf fering but the real essence of friend ship is what we give rather than what we get Our A Z man knows that to live is to live In relation and that only he who gives himself freely to oth ers has life worth living So we ex pect him to touch many lives and 10 have his own life made richer by living In lives other than hla own His friendship may cost him time and Every Month writes Mrs E

I expect him to be joyous In his work true to his friends calm in his judgments What then of the future It Is said of Dr Grenfell that heroic physician who has carried so much of life and light to the fisher men of Labrador that he was convey ed under the preaching of Dwight L Moody Fourteen years later he heard Moody preach After the sermon he made his way to the great preacher and said to him Fourteen years ago 1 was converted under your preaching and at that time I re ceived a great Inspiration to serve the Master Mr Moody chanced to be In a great haste but he paused to listen while Dr Grenfell said this and also to ask And what have you been doing since I will share with you if I may a vision which I have had of the fu ture Years from now so many that not all of us may share in what I disclose to you I see you men of A Z you who are our genial hosts to night coming together on this Be rea ridge And as you come you will say to your Alma Mater you will say to Alphu Zeta Literary Society Under your fostering Instruction and ex ample oC our teachers from the close associations and blessed Intimacies ot A 2 literary society I received years ago here In Berea a great inspira tlon to serve my Master and His world And then will your Alma Mater then will your society pause in the midst of the affairs pressing at the moment and say And what have you been doing since What then shall I what then shall the friend of the A Z Man here tonight expect will be your answer It may be I became an engineer as I Intended It fell to me to con struct a bridge over a fearful chasm where bridge after bridge had been havebeenbut my bridge stands as firm as the mountains which it connects Or you may say I became an mybuildingsIn brick or mortar in stone or In wood But every bit of plan and work is as true as the sun Or I have spent my life In courts of law and on the Judges bench It has been mine to heal the broken hearted to set at liberty those that were bruised In our great country to help to right industrial conditions and bring in the acceptable year of the Lord- Or I have written a book which has helpeg thousands Or I wrote a song which has cheered the toiler all over the land Haply the answer will be I have devoted myself to the schools in my own county And there Is not a child or youth within its borders whose chance in life Is not better for what I hove done Or with a steadfast look he may say I heard a voice from over the seas saying Come over and help us and I went In the Dark Contin ent where I have been there are dusky people whose lives have been transformed by my ministrations But perchance some A Z man may stand silent making no answer at all But his Alma Mater who has not forgotten him will say what of you my son Too And then he will speak slowly and scarcely raising his eyes I have done no great deeds such as I had hoped to do I have reared no great structures written no great book travelled to no foreign lands My way in life has been plain be fore me It has been my lot to stay at home to provide peaceful days for the aged to give the younger ones each a fair chance in life To do this has meant years od toll and years of selfdenial It even meant leaving Berea before my course was finished But he goes on and he straightens himself to his full height and his worn features glow as he speaks my oldest boy who gradu ates next June says his diploma shall 1bemineAt word I heard a murmur as of Interest and response from ge A Z men Looking I saw that the rank of the company had opened and that others had come In At first I had seen only the old familiar forms figures grow taller perhaps and many ot them broader heads with hair whether bright or dark straight or waving sprinkled with silver and faces showing lines ot thought and care tL J But the now comers were youths And I saw plainly that the older men were the friends the teachers the advisers the fathers of these youths And then I saw all the great company begin to march around the cam pus They paused to look at build ings which they had given a society hall a hall for social life at trees y wLlch they had planted they discuss t- ed the present and

the other two to a distant corner of the hall There he was Introduced to tho professor by Danny as an old friend who had charge of tho racing wires over which the odds and results on all races were transmitted to the pool rooms throughout the middle west Is It all right whispered tho breathless Danny As right as n compass Does your friend understand that Im to get half of tho winnings No I havent had time to explain to him yet I know hos all right thoughTho flattered professor beamed at Dannys enthusiastic words of Indorso ment and then it was explained to him that Mr Drown the Western Union race wire manager could with hold tho result of each race after it canto in until ho had telephoned Danny and given him time to get down a trod bet in tho pool room before they know that the

a hundred thousand dollars apleco with out anyone getting on to our game No such thing as a conscientious scruple occurred to Herr Oberman as I D ho glowed all over in anticipation of such wealth easily acquired from tho pool room mono He thought this about the cleverest schomo ho had ever heard of and so expressed himself with much show of enthusiasm The two conspirators had just finished a

treasury Some Ro publican senators are in sympathy with this view- Democratic senators will urge an Income tax as tho most rational and most prolific means of increasing the receipts All of them will support an income tax provision and several strenuously will urgo a tax on all dealings In futures They will have tho sup port of somo Republican senators but will not receive any assistance from

System The widely varied injuries on tho human system that are inflicted on the human body are shown In a series of articles by Dr Henry Smith Wil lams contributed to McClures Mag azine In the first entitled Alcohol and the Individual Dr Williams shows that the tissues of tho brain the nerves the heart and bloodves sels the stomach and Intestinal tract tho lymphatic system the kidneys and the liver may each and all become diseased by the habitual drink ing of oven small quantities of alcohol He notes also that these conse quences are not confined to the drink er but are passed on to his descend ants of successive generations All this Dr Williams tells us may be compared to the eroding effort of a flowing stream which has Its great est action on the part of Its banks that Is least resistant So alcohol circulating in the blood tends to attack whatever organ or tissue may betweakest and most susceptible Williams agrees with those who tend to class alcohol as a poison and die cards tho pernicious theory that It gives any persistent Increase ot mus cular power lie thinks that alcohol should bo classed with the moro or tratherstuffs In its action on the brain ho on to say alcohol is an Inhibitor disturber of mental activity not a gocsImoter of It This he regards as nitely proven by the experiments the chief German investigators effect that drink IInIn his second article Dr Smith takes up the relations of alcohol and the community Alcohol as notedIabove attacks the weakest point tho braincells which are the most delicate I and unstable of all organic tis sues the brain tho organ of mind is the organ whose tissues are most susceptible So says tho writerIwhen tho dlssectlngknlfo reveals post mortem a hobnail liver or an al coholic kidney stomach or heart it 1 will almost invariably reveal also a shrunken and watery alcoholic brain And In numberless cases In which aUIthe other organs have seemed to pre sent a granitelike resistance to the poison the brain alone gives evidence of having yielded to the strain Alienists both hero and in Europe he states agree that alcohol Is a most potent cause of Insanity Statistics show also that it Is a chief cause of crime and of pauperism These dims trous effects on tho community he l sums up thus + At least onethird of all tho recog I nlzcd pauperism In the most highly civilized communities of Christendom results from bodily and mental inefe ficlency due to alcoholic Indulgence A similar correspondence of testimony shows as we have seen that the same cause is responsible for tho mental overthrow of fully onefourth of all the unfortunates who are sent to asy lums for the Insane for the misfortunes of twofifths of neglected or abandoned children and for the moral delinquencies of at least half of tho convicts In our prisons and of not less than fourfifths of the inmates of our Jails and workhouses Wo havo previously seen how alcohol adds to the deathroll through alliance with all manner of physical maladies Did space permit It might bo shown how largely the same common enemy Is responsible for suicides and sudden deaths by accident in many lands for the universal prevalence of venereal diseases with all that they Imply and for a large proportion of such cases of marital Infelicity as find record In tho divorce courts But these after all are only minor details within time larger scheme of human suffering already outlined The insane the criminals of various types and the recipients of charity make up tho great mass of abnormal members of the bodypolitic whose unfitness receives official recognition Let it bo particularly borno in mind that the conclusions Just presented as to tho casual relation of alcohol to the production of each of these abnormal elements of society are as far removed as possible from mere sentimental es timates or pessimistic guesses They are Inductions based on careful sur veys of evidence Extent of Drink Evil In Australasia The

will ex pose all kinds of lawlessness The Citizen aided the good people of Sturgeon of ridding themselves of a notorious whiskey dealer whose evil Influence was felt for miles around and by Its exposure ot the moonshlnlng In Jackson County two stills were destroyed and three boot leggers arrested which gave the people a short respite from the evils of the liquor traffic yet there is still more work for it to do After the opening ot tho county campaigns in Jackson and Owsley the demand for booze became so great that the moonnhlners and bootleggers in the vicinity of Travis and Stur gcon have again begun operations to the great dread and annoyance of lour good people In both Owsley mid Jackson This evil is not only a men ace to our communities but is detri mental to the best Interests of our mountain counties and It is the duty ot every good citizen to help rid his neighborhood of this form of lawless nessMany men and women will appeal for temperance legislation and pray to God to wipe out the liquor traffic and at the same time shield a pack of moonshiners by their silence for fear of incurring the enmity of some neighbor who is profiting by this wicked and unlawful work Law

owes to the public says the Ellzabethtown News editor like everybody else hRs IAn unpleasant duties to perform He is obliged under the sense of duty to the public to publish crimes and results of criminal cases If he leaves one of these out of his paper because the family would rather not have It published he discriminates and that Is not fair to the public The editor may bo very sorry that a man has gone wrong and violated the low but the wrong Is In the act and not In the publication If we kept out for Instance one well known case ot stealing and conviction of a party because he was prominent and published the crimes of those not prominent It would be a dis crimination both unjust and unfair For Sick Persons When beef can be served to a sick person get a small piece of good por
