expressed hint self as surprised and gratified by what ho saw in Borea and in parti cular commended our work In mountain agriculture and forestry Tho chief points In his address were upon the selection of seedcorn the socalled dry cultivation and the rotation of crops lie said In part I used to think that my father was the handsomest man In the county and also that ho was tho wisest and It was a great effort for mo sonic years after his death to begin to change In some particulars his way of farming He used to plow deeply for corn and that was right Then bo planted his corn deeply and that was a mistake Then ho cultivated deeply aud that was another mistake Wo know today that the deep cultivation between the rows of corn only breaks tho roots and hinders tho growth What wo ought to do Is to cut tivate very frequently but only In a very shallow way so as to keep n mulch of pulverized soil like dust on top This holds tho moisture In tho ground and keeps the corn growing I have raised 60 bushels of corn to the acre by this cultivation when tbo Bane kind of land directly adjoining and cultivated deeply only brought 27 bushels to tho acre- I have had as surprising results by selecting good seedcorn selected sled corn can very nearly double tho yieldThen comes In tho great discovery of rotation of crops We say land It worn out That means that some of tho elements have been exhausted Tho othor olomonts are all thoro Now If we can supply the part that IB lacking In tho toll we shall have good crops again and this run be done commonly by changing time crops for two or three years Of course I do not need to toy 1kstitution was changed making It Im possible for the state to help In turn pike building I We are going to submit a constitutional amendment next fall to have the Constitution changed back so that thoro can be proper taxes levied for this Important purpose DR PEARSONS PAYS PLEDGE Dr Iearsons who some three weeks ago pledged 26000 for tho erection of a now tens Dormitory In Borea Tuesday sent Treasurer Osborne a cheque for tho full amount This was a most unusual thing as donors commonly send their money only rafter a building Is finished Chapel

we Immure enough as long as there Is ono man or woman unfed or ono child untaught But this will on able us to do a groat deal moro good than we have over done thus far ADDRESS ON FORESTRY One of the most Important MondayI lectures of tho term was week by Mrs P S Peterson of Chi cage Mrs Peterson Is Superinten dent of Forestry for tho United States Federation of Womens Clubs She is a graduate of Mount Holyoke a woman of Independent means and has traveled both in this country and Europe and made such careful studies that she Is now ono of tho chief authorities ou forestry In tho world She has tho art ot presenting tho topic In an interesting and attractive manner Mrs Petersons visit In Berea was greatly enjoyed She slake to private gathering of faculty peopl- on Saturday night and to the Young Womans Christian Association on Sunday night Stormy weather pro vented her from making the moun tain excursions which she had plated but she took a short drive thru the forest preserve on Saturday and visited the Social Settlement at Nar row Gap on Sunday THE WAY OF SUCCESS STILL OPEN It is the custom for a great many people when they are asked why they do not get to work and make something of themselves to answer that they are poor people and their folku are poor people They seem to think that this keeps them from being successful or useful or prosperous or in fact from winning anything worthwhile in lifeIf such people who would not make such a foolish remark un less there was something very poor in their brains as well as in their pocketbooks would look around in the world a little bit theywould see there things that would make them so ashamed of themselves that they would really try to get ahead On every side they will see where poor people people with no more start than they have won great success in some line of work Everybody knows of the rail eplitter and country store clerk who got to be president and of the grocers clerk that is now worth two hundred and fifty million dollars But a lot of people will tell you that the chances such as came to them have gone and that there is no chance for a poor man nowadays They are right if they mean a man with a poor head and poor spirit has no chance but if they think they are talking about a man with little money they are wrong Four weeks ago a man who started life an a rodman for a sur veyor became president of the second largest railroad in the country That is pretty close to up todnte And you can be very sure that that man will give the poor fellows a chance He knows just how it is And of the thirtyfour largest railroads in this country there are twentyeight which are now managed by men who started out without a cent right down at the bottom of the ladder of success Every one of the sixteen biggest railroads in the country is managed by a president that started at the bottom some of them were clerks switchmen telegraph operators brakemeu office bows and section hands Do you know any man so poor that he couldnt hold down one of those jobs f Unless n man is that poor he can get his feet on the ladder that has taken some other man clear to the top This is just one line there is the same story to tell in each of the other lines of business in the country The leading steel man ufacturer began life as a breaker boy in a coal mine Tito leading newspaper man began life as a printers devil One of the leading merchants started in as a huckster And HO on There is today every chance for am tuna that hiss got the real stuff in him Ifa man foils to keep gqing toward the top it is be cause there is something wrong with any complaint because he is poor or anything else is just himJand This is a free coun try and the freest thing in it is can have it that will pay the price of it iu workIInd brain There is nothing that is less hindrance than being a poor man u u OUR FRIEND JACOBY We were all moved by Dr Torrey and Dr Palmer but we all LOVED Brother Jacoby and here is his

Washington D C May 3 1009 Everyody seems to think that the AldrIch tariff act will become a law by the early part of June Inabout the form that Aldrich wishes No more crafty or adroit parliamentary leader ever patlcipated In American legislation than Aldrlch He appears at this time to have snatched victory from defeat in regard to the thrift bill and a high tariff will bo retain ed unless President Taft vetoes the measure t The thing which makes it possible for Aldrich to control the situation Is that the Democratic Senators of the South want the southern pro ducts protected and the Democratic Senators of the West want their products protected This ensures a high protective rate on both wool amid lumberThe Senate has witnessed the unt que sight this week of a North Car olina Dembcrat of the good old South ern school Senator Simmons plead ing for high protective tariff on lum ber while a North Dakota Republi can who has been one of the main stays of the Republican organization for years Senator McCumber was begging for free trade for lumber Aldrich did not hesitate In the face of this situation He made friends with the Democrats who favor pro tection and let the Republicans who will not stand up for the stretching of the oldprinciple go flock by them selves The Senators are a conservative set of men They feel that tho Dingle Dill has given the country more prosperity than It ever had before and they do not propose to go back on what they consider a proven success CONCESSIONS TO TAFT It Is said that Aldrich will make just enough concessions to President Tafts views in favor of reduction of the rates so that Taft will not feel justified In splitting his party up over a measure which will come so near to being downward revision At any rate if anyone can get the bill through In Its present form Al drich can do it And there is no doubt that he Is trying his best to do so Speaker Cannon announced this week that ho Is in favor of a tariff commission to aid Congress As a matter of fact tho proposal for such a commission has found so many friends that no one expected Can non to oppose It and his declaration Is taken merely to Indicate the terms on which he will give a bill to pro vide for tho commission his support Another Interesting proposition which is being seriously considered is the formation of a socalled Custom Court to be composed of five men drawing ten thousand dollar salaries who shall decide all questions arising under tho collection of duties on Im ports At least such a court would furnish good resting places for some of the lame ducks who fall of re election to Congress The Government this week set th Geological Survey to find out how many sites for the development of water power are on land which the United

S A visiting saw the suicide of young Mercer He met Cary Mercer brother of the dead student Three years later In Chicago In 1906 Cot Winter overheard Cary Mercer ap parently planning to kidnap Archie tho colonels ward and to gain possession of Aunt Rebecca Winters millions A Miss Smith was mentioned apparently as a conspirator Winter unexpectedly met a relative Mrs Mllllcent Molvllle who told him that his Aunt Rebecca Archie and the latter nurse Miss Janet Smith were to leave for tho west with tho colonel and Mrs Melville A great finan slat magnate was aboard tho train on which Col Winter met his Aunt Rebe- cca Miss Smith and Archie He set his orderly Scrgt Haley to watch over Cary Mercer Col Winter learned that the financial magnate Is Edwin S Keatcham On approaching Cory Mercer the colonel was snubbed CHAPTER III Continued Archlo looked disappointed I suppose so ho sighed Im afraid Id want to it they were pointing pistols at me Lewis was on the train once when a man showed fight Ho wouldnt put up his hands and tho bandit plugged him like a lash ho fell crosswise over the seat and tho blood spurted across Lewis wrist he said it was like a hot jet of water The homely and bizarre horror of tho picture had evidently struck home to Archlo he halt shivered Too much imagination grumbled tho colonel to himself A Winter ought to tako to fighting like a duck to water He betook himself to Miss Smith and he was uneasily con scious that he was going to her for consoling But he felt better after a little talk about Archio with her Plainly she thought Archie had plenty of spirit although of course ho hadnt told her about the bandits Tho negro was kidding tho passengers and women shouldnt bo disturbed by such nonsense The colonel had old fashioned views of guarding his woman kind from the harsh ways of the world Curious he reflected what sense Miss Smith seemed to have and how she understood things lie felt better acquainted with her than a years garrison Intercourse would have mado him with any other woman knewThat they two sat watch lag the fantastic cliffs which took grotesque semblance of ruined castles crowning their barren hillsides or of deserted amphitheaters left by some vanished race to crumble They had talked of many things Sho had told him of tho sleepy old South Carolinian town whero oho was born and the plantation and the distant cousin who was like her mother and tho hospital where she had been taught and thu married sister who had died Such a narrow laborious Innocent existence as sho described How cheerfully too she had shouldered her burdens I They talked of tho south and of the Philippines a little they talked of ArchIe and his sorrow and of the eternal problems that have troubled tho soul of man since first death en tered the world As they talked tho colonels suspicions faded into gro tesque shadows Mllllcent Is ridiculous quoth he Then he fell to won dering whether there had been n romance in Miss Smiths pastjlfo Such a handsomo woman would ook high he sighed Only 24 hours ago ho had called Miss Smith nicelooking with careless criticism Ho was quite un I conscious of his chango of view That night ho felt lonely of a sudden tho old wound In his heart ached his future looked as bleak as tho mountain walled plains through which ho was speeding After a long time the train stopped with a jar and rattle ending J In a sudden shock He raised the cur olcctrlcithey glittered like diamonds In a I Idefileof water Why should ho think t Smiths eyes With an Impa sigh he pulled down tho curtain and turned over to sleep j His thoughts drifted floated were submerged In a wavering procession of pictures ho was back in tho Philippines they had surprised thu fort I I how could that be when ho was on satt41slippedtho revolver out of his bag and in one hand as he peeped through the crevice of the curtains There was no motion no sound oft 81 moving but heads were emerging be tween tho curtnlnb in

Now your watch commanded tho brigand tako It Shayl Wont you pleaso let me keep that watch faltered Archlo that was papas watch Tho childish name from tho tall lad mado the robber laugh And mammas little pet wants to keep it does hot Well ho cant Got a move on you Tho colonel had the sensation of an electric shock as tho second robber grabbed at tho fob in tho boys belt Archlo struck him with tho edge of his open hand so swiftly and so fiercely under tho Jaw that ho reached back against his companion The colonels surprise did not disturb tho automatic aim of ari old fighter of tho plains his revolver barked and ho sprang out on the man ho shot Get back In the berths nil of you ho shouted give mo a chance to shoot Tho voice of tho porter whoso hands had been turning up the lights not qulto steadily now pealed out with campmeeting power Dats it glvo do colonel a chance to do somo killingBoth bandits were sprawling on the floor of the alslo ono limp and moan Ing but the other got ono hand up to shoot only to havo Archlo kick tho revolver out of it whllo at tho same instant an umbrella handle fell with a wicked whack on tho mans shoulder The New England professor was out of his berth Ho had been a baseball man in his own college days his bat was a frail ono but ho hit with a will and a groan told of his success Never theless tho fellow scrambled to his feet Mrs Melville was also out of her berth thanks to which circumstance ho was able to escape as tho colonel who had grappled with the other man and prevented his rising must needs have shot through his sisterinlaw to hit tho fleeing form Whats the matter demanded Mrs Melville while the New Englander used an expression which no doubt as a good church member ho regretted later and the colonel thun dered All tho women back Into their berths Dont anybody shoot You professor look after that fellow on tho floor He was obeyed In stinctively tho master of the hour Is obeyed The porter came forward and helped tho New Englander bind the prostrate outlaw with two silk hand kerchiefs and a pair of pajamas guard mount being supplied by three men in very startling costumes and a kind of seraglio audience behind tho cur- taIns of the berth being enacted by all the women in tho car only excepting Aunt Rebecca and Miss Smith Aunt Rebecca in her admirable traveling costumo of a soft gray silk wrapper looked as undisturbed as If midnight alarms were an evcrynlght feature of journeys Mist Smiths black hair was loosely knotted and her taco looked pale while her dark eyes shone They all heard the colonels revolver they all saw tho two men who had met him at tho car door spring off tho platform Into tho dark Tho robbers had horses waiting The colonel got one shot ho saw the man fall over his horses neck but tho horse galloped on and tho night beyond the little splash of light swal lowed them completely After tho conductor and tho en gineer had both consulted him and the express messenger had uppeared armed to the teeth a little too late for tho fray but not too late for lucid argument Winter mado his way back to the car Miss Smith was sitting beside Archie sho was holding the watch which had played so important a part in the battle up under the electric light to examine an inscription The loose black sleeves of her blouse fell back revealing her arms they wore white and softly rounded Sho looked up and tho soldier felt tho sudden rush of an emotion that ho had not known for years It caught at his throat almost like an Invisible bandWell Archie ho said foolishly good for jiujitsu Archie flushed up to his eyes Why didnt you obey orders young raan and hold up your hands said Col Rupert Winter Youre as bad as poor Haley who is nearly weeping that ho had no chance but only broke away from Mrs Haley In time to see the robbers make of- fII did at first but I got so mad I forgot stammered Archie happily Afterward you woro my superior officer and I had to do what you said All the while ho chaffed the boy he was watching for that beautiful look In Janet Smiths eyes and wondering when he could get her off by herself to brag to her of the boys courage When his chance at a fow words did como he chuckled Regular fool Winter I knew ha would act In just that absurd reckless way Then ho caught the look he wanted It surely was a lovely womanly look and it His Revolver Darked meantwhat In thunder did It moan As ho puzzled his pulses gave the same unaccountable smothering leap and he felt as tho boy of SO had felt coming back from his battle to his first love CHAPTER IV The Vanishing of Archie In my opinion said Aunt Rebecca critically eyeing her new drawing room on the train to San Francisco tho object of our legal methods seems to bo to defend tho criminal And a very efficient means to this end Is to make It so uncomfortable and costly and inconvenient for any wIt- nesses of a crime that ho runs away rather than cnduro it Here wo havo had to stay over so long in Salt Lako wo nearly lost our drawing room But never mind you got your man committed Did you find out anything about his gang Tho colonel shook his head No hes a tough country boy ho has tho rural distrust of lawyers and ot sweat boxes Ho docs absolutely nothing but groan and swear pretending Ills wound hurts him But Ivo a notion there aro bigger people back of him Its most awfully good of you Aunt Rebecca to stick to mo this way Of course I stick to you Im too old to bo fickle Did you over know a Winter who wouldnt stand by his friends I belong to tho old regime Bertlo wo had our faultsglaring- ones I daro saybut if wo condoned sin too readily we never condoned meanness such a trick as that upstart Keatcham is doing would havo been Impossible to my contemporaries You saw tho morning papers you know ho means to eat up the Midland Yes I know mused tho colonel and turn Tracy the president down tho ono who gave him his start on his bucanoerlng career Tracy declines to bo his tool being I under stand a very decent sort of man who has always run his road for his stock holders and not for tho stock market A capital crime that in these days So Keatcham has somehow by ono trick or another got enough directors since Banelclgh died to glvo him con trol though ho couldnt get enough of tho stock and now ho means to grab the road to use for himself Poor Tracy who loves tho road as a child they sty will havo to stand by and see it turned into a Wall street foot ball and tho equipment run down as fast as its reputation I think Im sorry for Tracy Besides Its a bad lookout tho power of such follows men who are not captains of industry not a little bit only Inspired gamblers Yet they aro running the country I wonder whero Is tho class that will s save us I dont know I dont admire tht present century Bertie We had people of quality in my day wo havo only people of culture In this I confess I prefer the quality They had robuster nerves awl really asked less of people although they may have appeared to ask moro We used to be contented with respect from our Inferiors sod courtesy from our oqualt And what from your betters Aunt Rebecca drawled tho colonel Wo had no bettors Rupert we were the best I think partly It was our assurance of our position which nobody else doubted any more than we that kept us so mannerly Nowadays nobody has a real position Ho may havo wealth and a servile follow lag who expect to mako something out of him but ho hasnt position Tho newspapers can make fun of him Tho common people watch him drive by and never think of removing their caps Nobody takes him seriously except his toadies and himself And as for tho sentiments of reverence and loyalty very useful sentiments in running a world they seem to havo clean disappeared except she smiled a halfreluctant smile except with youngsters Jlko Archie who would find It agreeable to be chopped Into bits for you and the women who have not lived In tho world like Janet who makes a heroine out of maupon my word Bertie jo tal fait rouglr Not at all said tho colonel an Illusion of tho sunset but what do you moan when you say people of quality required less than people of cultureOh simply this all wo demanded was deference but your cultivated gang wants admiration and submis sion and will not let us possess our secret souls oven In peace And then tho quality despised no one but tho cultivated despise every ono Ah well Those good old times are past and gone- I sigh for them In vain Janet I wish Archie would fish his mandolin out and you would sing to mo I like to hear the songs of my youth Not ragtime or coonsongs but dear old Fosters melodies Old Kentucky Home and Massas In the Col Col Ground and Nellie Was a Ladywhat makes that so sad I wonder Nellie was a lady las night she died Its all in that single line I think it Is because it represents tho pathetic idealization of love Nellie was that black lovers Ideal of all that was lovely and sho was dead Is tho orchestra readyand tho choir Yes shut tho door wo aro for arts sake only not for the applause of tho cold world In tho car Afterward when ho was angry over his own folly his own blind dogged trustfulness against all tho odds of evidence Rupert Winter laid his weak ness to that hour to a womans sweet untrained tender voice singing tho simple melodies of ills youth They sang ono sting after another while the sun sank lower and stained the west ern sky Through tho saowsneds they could catch glimpses of a wild and strange nature austere yet not repelling vistas of foothlllit bathed In the evening glow rank on rank ot firs tall straight bcitlful not wind tortured and maimed like the woeful IL Ue1TR1ATIOlV A ZCOPYRGHT ISOl IJOBBs MCRklLL CO dwarfs of Colorado and wonderful snowcapped

aro this year celebrating what is really the one hundredth anniversary of tho birth of our movement for it was in 1809 that David L Dodge a Christian mor chant of New York city wroto tho pamphlet which brought the move meat into being and led six years later to tho organization in his parlor In New York of tho first Peace society In tho world There had then been no arbitrations between nations In our modern sense of the word nations In the 100 years since 1809 more than 250 Important controversies have been settled by this means not to mention an even greater number of less Important cases tho settlement of which involved tho principle of ar bitration Within the past 20 years so rapid has been tho triumph of arbi tration that more than 100 interna tional differences have been disposed of by this means or between fivo and six a year for tho whole 20 years The Hague Court Tho first Hague conference ten years agogavo us the Permanent In ternatlonal court of arbitration which has now been In successful operation for about eight years and disposed of coveral important controversies This court was strengthened and improved by tho second lingua conference two years ago and by tho admission of tho South and Central American states to It has become tho arbitration court not of the 2C powers that gathered at The lingua In 1899 but of the entire world This tribunal Is now taking practically all the International differ once not adjustable by diplomacy Within less than six years moro than 80 treaties of obligatory arbl tration stipulating reference to The Hague court of all questions of a Judicial order and those arising In the Interpretation of treaties have been concluded between nations In pairs 23 of which were negotiated tho past year by our distinguished exSecretary of State Root and ratified by both tho president and tho senate The Hague Conferences HI In order to determine further tho advanced position which tho peace movement has attained on Its practical side the two Hague confer oaten and what they have ac complished must bo taken into ac count It is still the habit of some per sons to speak dlsparaglpgly of these great gatherings and their results Some do It because they are satisfied with nothing short of Immediate per fection others because they wish the whole movement for tho abolition of war to fall Othero do it purely from IgnoranceTho Hague conference gave us tho permanent International court of arbitration to which 24 powers finally became parties by ratification of tho convention This court has now for eight years been In successful opera lion and not less than four contro versles have been referred to it dur ing tho past year Tho second Hague conference enlarged and strengthened the convention under which this court was sot up and made tho court tho tribunal not of 25 powers but of all tho nations of tho world The high water mark of the work of the second Hague conference was reached in Its action In regard to fu turo meetings of tho conference Tho principle of periodic meetings of tho conference hereafter was approved without a dissenting voice The date oven of the third conference was fixed and the

Missouri president of the American Group Interparliamentary union Another paper that met with deserved applause was that of Edwin D Mend of Boston on The Arrest In Competitive Arming In Fidelity to The Hague Movement Competitive Arming- In discussing this question Mr Mead said Let us consider simply Great Brit ala Germany and tho United States It Is unnecessary to go further because these three nations control the situation and they are tho chief sin ners If these three nations began today to act with reference to arma ments In accordance with the spirit and purpose of Tho Hague convention the peaco and order of tho world would be assured tomorrow In 1S98 Great Britain spent on her navy 124000000 Germany spent 29000000 and the United States spent 50000000 Last year Great Britain spent 170000000 Germany 83000000 and the United States 104000000 Tho Increase In precisely ten years when there should have been decrease was enormous Our own army expenses last year were as great as eur

this sort They would say today that tho republic was stand- Ing on Its head Hope for the Future This Is what has como about in ten years In these three nations be cause The Hague conference in 1899 did nothing about the reduction or arrest of armaments As wo now look back wo see that it could not do much directly nt that time The war system of nations could be supplanted only by the gradual development of a system of International law and Jus tice to take Its place When the first Hague conference created the inter national tribunal It did Indirectly tho most probably which it could do in be half of tho reduction of armaments because It took a long step in furnish ing tho nations with such legal ma chinery for tho settlement of their dif ferences as makes recourse to war machinery moro and moro unneces sary and Inexcusable It has been In the line of this thought that the In tcrnatlonal lawyers have had their hopeful assurance Develop the legal machinery they said and tho armaments will perforce crumble of their own dead weight Tho continued and rapid development during the decade of provision for the peaceful settlement of Interna tional disputes has been something un paralleled in history The leaders ol tho movement for International Justice are sometimes reproached with being dreamers Tho only trouble with thorn In tho past ten years has been that so far as the development of the Instruments of international Justice are con cerned they havo not been able to dream daringly enough or fast enough to keep up with tho facts Among the diplomats who camo to Chicago to attend the Peace congress were Ambassador Count Johann Holnrlch von Bcrnstorff of Germany Herman do Lagercrantz envoy from Sweden Wa Ting Fang envoy from China Alfred Mitchell Innes coun selor of

greater the work a man en deavors to do the greater the obsta cles that bo will meet and the more numerous they will be It Is a princi plo of physics that resistance Increases as the square of the velocity Pauls work like that of all true Christians was very great and therefore It en countered formidable obstacles Dut these hindrances were over come in Christs strength and the process of overcoming them strength ened Paul as It will strengthen us A certain amount of opposition is a great help to a man Kites rise against and not with the wind Even a head wind Is better than noneJohn Neat A great multitude both of the Jews and also of the Greeks Jewish prose lytes believed but there were unbe lieving Jews R V disobedient to the truth who prejudiced the Gentile populace against the missionaries by their calumnies For this double reason therefore T 3 Paul and Barn abas remained at Iconlum a long time probably several months since 1 there were so many converts to be Instructed in their new faith and 2 that faith was evidently to be tried by severe opposition and would need to be strongly re enforced by instruction Finally however the hatred of the Jewish rulers and of the Gentiles whom they influenced not the Gentile rulers see v 5 became so Inflamed with the missionaries bold speech and Increasing success that a plot was formed to stone them as blasphemers Getting knowledge of this and mindful of Christs command Matt 1023 to flee from persecution Paul and Barna bas escaped going first to Lystra 18 miles southsouthwest of Iconlum and then to the Dcrbc 20 miles to the southeast of Lystra Stories of the gods coming down to man wore common among the Greeks and other races Like distorted and obscure reflections in muddy water they give a blurred Image of the great truth Maclarcn They show that Christs coming was In response to a universal need One of these tales was of the visit ot Jupiter and Mercury to this very Lycaonla The people thought them to be poor vagrants refused to entertain them ridiculed and maltreated them At last they came to the but of the poor peasants Baucis and Philemon who received them hos pitably and entertained them with the best they had In return the gods transformed their hut into n glorious temple over which they were set as the chief ministers of worship while the churlish neighbors were punished by a terrible flood which overwhelmed them The statue of Jupiter stood before the gate of Lystra and Ewald suggests that this story of Bands and Philemon may have been recited year by year at the great festival in this templeThey persuaded the people Probably they influenced the multitudes to regard the miracle the reality of which they could not dispute as the work not of beneficent gods but of evil demonsExpos Greek Testament They raised a mob which stoned Paul whose bold speech had centered hostility upon himself What memories of the stoning of Stephen ten or eleven years before must have passed through Pauls mind Trans formed Into a howling mob like those which even in Christian America shoot negroes Chinamen and Italians the quondam worshipers left Paul ready as they supposed for the cremation fires or the vagrant dogs William Elliot Griffs L H D Perhaps as the stoning of Stephen must have moved Paul toward Christianity the stoning of Paul was the turning point in the life of Timothy The young man may have been among the disciples who stood round about him to give what aid they could and care for his body It ho were really dead Note the sudden change In the feel ings of the people toward Paul and compare it with the revolution in the attitude of the people of Jerusalem toward Christ from Hosanna to Crucify him Compare also the sud den change In the minds of the people of Malta Acts 2S4G The lesson is not to rate very highly human praise not to bo greatly depressed by human censure Had Paul been desperately anxious to please Lystra I fancy that that stoning would have killed him MorrisonHow the missionaries close the first missionary journey Properly and wisely with a report to the home church at Antioch In Syria which had sent them forth Thi report was to the whole church for all had a part in the work and needed the stimulus of the report Every member of the congregation should be in the missionary meeting 2 It was a modest report tolling what God had done with them on their side as an ally and not recounting tho achievements as their own 3 It was an encouraging report a report of progress tolling of the great forward step that had been taken the admls rIon of Gentiles Into the church through the door of faith and no longer through the rite of circum cision I 1855 Berea College 1908 FOR THE ASPIRING YOUNG PEO PLE OF THE MOUNTAINS Places the BEST

selected the seed ears from tho standing stalks at ripening time For most of us It Is too late to talk about selecting from the stalk but we can still select the earn Tho shape of the kernel Is very Important The car should be smooth and well filled out at each end The kernels should be of uniform size and shape placed In straight rows extending from one end to the other No ears with parts of rdws or kernels between the rows should be used The kernels should fit tightly together both on the sides and edges withI no open places between the rows They should be of uniform shape and length in all parts of the ear slightly wedge shape Ears on which the kernels do not fit tight must not be used This condition may be due to two reasons either the kernels have dried up leaving a space be tween them or they are too large in the center and at the small end The outside end must be the largest i SPRING DISHES fly Mrs Jeanie When the first warm days come everyone wants something different to eat

larger at the outer end If you lay down ten kernels with the sides touching each they should make a circle or nearly so Long kernels are more desirable and with the long kernels generally comes a

Sun Bros Circus showed here Tuesday evening and night The steady downpour of rain during both performances detracted somewhat from the enjoyment of the spectators as the big tent was not waterproof In spite of that a good crowd was out Tho children of tho town especially will long remember the animals They were well trained seeming almost human at times The two big ele phants and the horses were probably tho greatest attraction The trapeze and tight rope acts were well done and the tumblers showed skill and agility that wore amazing Altogether It was a good clean show TAKE HOWES GREAT LONDON SHOW o A Revelation Even to Old Circus Lovers An Original Creation Tho performance la exceptionally fine and full of interest to all lovers of the ring Nearly everything is entirely now and what Is not is mnn aged and brought out under such new methods and system that every act Is refreshing and pleasing Howes Shows seem not willing to simply pur SUb a business on antique methods but to advance the show business to moro genteel and refined lines All vulgarities and ancient impoliteness in and out of tae ring have been eliminated and the show will meet with unbounded favor wherever it goes this year We say this in all sincerity Great improvements are noticeable especially to us old fellows who have attended every circus for moro than fifty years that has come along No gentleman or lady no mat ter how moral or religious the calling they pursue nor what refined circle they move in need hesitate to attend tho show nor bo certain ot anything but refined pleasure free from any thing that

keeps things stirred up that raises the biggest cropsIts a sign of a hard year for the family when the wife carries time stove pipesSome men marry a girl because she is a great talker Better got a talk ing machine you can stop It when you get tired Dont leave an ax sticking where some one will fall on It or stick scy thes hatchets or tools overhead to tall and hurt some one Keep the rounds of the ladder all good and stout When you get to trimming fruit trees or hunting nests you dont want to fall and brea- a leg Things that snap under you ften take the snap out of you If you want to know just how good a farmer a man Is go way back on his place where tow eyes ever rest and see how things are going on ther It everything Is neat and shipshape there you may depend upon it that the man is a good farmer The test Investment farmers can make is in giving children a good start In life But that doesnt mean a big farm and a fine moneyoutfit alone They will need some help some courage some hopefulness much truthfulness clean hearts and pure minds considerably more than money Dad roads and scrubby stock go to gether The farmers who set out to have better stock set out at the same time to havo better roads bet ter crops and more improvements and conveniences on the farm And in a neighborhood where there are CarmsIute Theres still room at the top but you cant reach it by going up in th

DIXON D D PutoofibLMicqoAMoodystrurcbthiago Giving is doubt less tho most Im portant part of stewardship Jesus said Give alms of such things as ye have and behold all things are clean unto you Luke 1140 Get ting and holding pollutes us and our holdings with selfishness The dirtiest thing in this city Is accu mutated wealth not a penny ot which has been given to God or humanity Jesus said again It Is more blessed to give than to receive And the word blessed means happy without the hap In giving there comes a joy which Is not dependent upon chance It Is a law as regular In Its workings as gravitation that giving makes the giver happy and get ting money with a view to doing good by giving it fills with joy Paul says to the toller in Ephesians 428 Let him labor working with his hands that which is good that he may have whereof to give to him that hath need The dally toller goes to his work with a song In his heart if he has the high and holy motive of work ing that he may help others in need of body mind of soul What are you doing this morning said a neighbor to a sturdy blacksmith Preaching the gospel to the regions beyond answered the Christian man as he swung his hammer and remembered the subscription he had made to for eign missions the day before Toll at the anvil had been glorified into joyful service for the King of kings Riches at Burdens The Hebrew word for riches means burden and some one has said There is often a burden of care In getting them a burden ot anxiety in keeping them a burden ot temptation In using them a burden of guilt In abusing them a burden of sorrow in losing them a burden of account at last to be given up for possessing without improving them But In giving them there is a burden of joy which like the wings of the bird lifts the soul upward toward God In the spirit of self sacritlcing love The Dead sea takes In the Jordan and holds It Hence the death and repul slap The Sea of Galilee takes In the Jordan and gives it off Hence Its life and beauty Getting and holding Itska Sea of Galilee full ol life and beauty Onetenth Is the law as God hath prospered is the gospel which as always goes beyond the law For Israel to withhold time tithe was to rob God Mal 38 The law said All the tithe Is the Lords Lev 2730 The tithe was therefore a debt to God which the Israelite must pay be fore he could give anything The Christian to be sure will not insist that he ought to do less than the Jew Onetenth of his Income ought therefore to be laid by in store for the Lords work while he gladly gives freewill offerings prompted by con slderatlons of Judgment mercy and faith Real Giving These freewill offerings should be inspired by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ who though bo was rich yet for your sakes became poor that ye through his poverty might be rich 2 Cor 89 Try to compute his poverty and our riches through him Then ask how much ought we to give If you would build symmetrical Christian character do not let tho grace of giving languish Linked with Christ money brings largo returns The widows two fifths of a cent given in love and faith have increased to millions ot dollars The alabaster box broken and poured upon tho head of Christ has filled the ages with its perfume and as a result mil lions of alabaster boxes have been poured upon his head A Christian man once prosperous in business but now poor says Tho only money I really saved was what I gave An other man with an income of 7500 a year lived on 500 a year and gave 7000 to religious and benevolent ob jects Another whose annual income was 10000 lived on 1000 and gave the rest thus reversing time law of tithing by keeping onetenth and glv ing nlne tenths which was his gospel privilegeWesleys Method When John Wesley in preaching his sermon on

president the power to declare a tariff war against any nation or to refrain from any such war It is given to him to decide whether any nation is discriminating against the United States in its system of duo ties This permits tho government through the state department and the other agencies provided by law to make agreements with other nations as to trade and tariff concessions which can be made effective by n proclamation of the president without the necessity of anything in the way of legislation or treaty agreement- In this way tho delay can bo ob slated which would necessarily follow the submission to congress or to the senate of any proposition requiring such sanction and approval before put ting it into effect The bill it is explained authorizes the president to employ at his discre tion any persons to secure information or assist him in the discharge of these duties which would moan that ho can appoint commissioners representing the United States to go abroad and make agreements

the water Into your taco quickly tot lowed by another slimy something and then another and another each endeavoring to securo an option on a different portion of your anatomy and you have ono of the vari ous joys of fishing for the devil fish Jut along tho Amor ican coast of the Gulf of Mexico there are lots and lots of men who eke out their livings doing just this thing For tho man who doesnt have to fish for tho devilfish its fun but to tho man or crews of men who do It for their dally bread well they content themselves with a single catch a day Aristotle of old is recorded In his tory ns tho first writer on tho sub A ject of devil flshing but ns ho was exceedingly fond of Mr Aristotles health ho left lots unsaid because ho didnt Investigate Every Gulf of Mexico sailor who fishes for this creature carrion a hatchet close by for that Is tho only means of getting away from tho fishs tentaclessimply cutting thorn off as they nro about to grasp till Intended victimIn the gulf tho dovtlflsh Is har pooned and seldom after ono of those great prongs has been Imbedded In tho body of tho victim are the fisherman able to land their quarry within two hours Usually It takes from three to four hours of good hard mus cle grinding work and then lots of times tho crow of the hunting craft must cut tho cable and lose tho hal poon simply because tho bruto fights too hard to allow tho occupation to bo carried on safely It Is little wonder that ono fish a day of this variety Is considered sufficient Many wild weird tales ore told of the devilfish Ono class of stories deals with tho creatures addiction to towing oceangoing steamers out of their courses So strong Is tho deep sea monster that captains of vessels have been known to wonder what was carrying them to windward and I upon Investigation find that a devilfish or cuttle fish was trying to blto off a corner of tho rudder Numerous cases of the fish attempting and suc ceeding In towing tenton sloops for miles have been recorded In the annals of the Industry Tho devilUshers always are compelled to put up a hot fight against this animal of the sea Tho Intend ed quarry will pull them far out of their course after tho first harpoon has slung his hide and It takes two and sometimes three of them before the catch can bo brought close enough to tho sloop to allow the gunner to place a shot In a vital spot The fish must bo continually worried or It will descend to tho bottom to rest In which caso it usually takes tho boat crow and apparatus with It A story Is told of a boat crow which had not bad a devilfish strike for two days until finally the harpoon expert on the bowsprit Imbedded his Instrument of torture within the vitals of ono of the monsters Tho creature of course went through tho formality of turning the water there abouts Into a dellcato black this being one of tho traits of the species when attacked This done tho devilfish started for home which was the bot tom of tho gulf The harpoon expert hated to 1 lot go on account of strikes being few and tho boat crow and harpoonlst also began tho descent In Inky darkness The craft being provided with air tanks at each end tho harpooned had some job on his hands and when down in the sea about 20 feet as near as the mariners could figure the elght armed namesake of the American trust gingerly climbed Into tho boat with tho men who were seeking his lifeblood It being dark tho fishermen did not perceive his presence Once moro nt tho surface however and there was a miniature fire panic Regaining his presence of mind however tho harpoonlst put an out drop on his second throw and put an end to tho pranks of tho fish That tale has been called Just a fish story but there are three deep sea fishermen today who vouch for the truth of a portion of it and they still ply that trado on the coast of tho gulf nut now when tho devilfish starts for homo they let him go Tho mnnta as the creature Is called by scI ence Is to bo found ns far north on tho Atlantic coast as tho Carolinas and In those waters some of the largest of this class of sea creatures have been seen One caught on the Atlantic coast several years ago required three yoko of oxen to drag It from tho sea and Its weight was estimated at four tons- Usually tho devilfish measures from 20 to 25 feet across Its back when full grown and ono mariner on the Pacific coast reported that ho had estimated one to bo 40 feet which oye measure ment ot course Is within tho realm ot possibility Tho creature has two well defined plans of de anvvQSO tense and thus tho Al mighty has endowed tho species with moro than tho ordinary powers Jon usually fish boast or bird of tho air has only ono natural modo of protection Tho cuttlefish however can cast from its tissues an Inky sub stance known as se plat which turns tho water In Its vicinity an impenetrable black and allows escape Combined with this there Is the set of eight tentacles which possess grips of Iron and are lined underneath with suckers which when In working order form a vacuum over tho object grasped and thus Insure a firm hold So firm is this grasp that story tellers of several dccadco ago wore fond of dropping the treas urehunting hero Into the hold of tho sunken galleon and there bump him up against tho ter rible devilfish which had thwarted nit human wiles and for umpty hundred years been tho guardian of tho dons loot The hero always won and captured tho coin being dragged to tho surface unconscious There havo been ono or two cases where the cuttlefish has made Its homo within tho cabins of sunken ships In ono case In particular off tho northern coast of South America it Is told that a dovllfish killed threo divers who descended to lay plans for raising tho ship As each man was brought to tho surface dead from n causo which none of his mates could guess an other was sent to take his place Finally tho trouble was suspected and tho last man sent down gave explicit instructions about being brought to the surface upon the faintest tug at tho guide line After numerous trips up and back ho succeeded in dislodging tho croature by cutting ort its arms ono by one Deprived of Its arms it fled and no further trouble was ex periencedPerhaps the most uncanny sight which over befalls the devilfish hunters Is when on a clear day tho denizens of tho deep may be seen on the bottom walking along with tho aid of their tentacles which are used as feet On land It is recorded this is a physical Impossibility for the fish but buoyed up by the water of many fath oms Its easy- Though absolutely the most dangerous of crea tures ot the sea It Is said tho devilfish displays greater fear of human attack than any of the other species Tho first move when assailed Is to try to grab tho hunters with two or moro of the long arms that stretch out as occasion do mands Falling in this tho fish will attempt to get awny under cover of tho inky sepia but when caught with tho harpoon and it finds there Is no apparent escape the real tug of war com mences and tho struggles are never ended until the quarry ceases quivering In death Then tho cables which hold the harpoons are lashed to the stern of tho craft and tile sailors turn tho ves sels noso towards homo the most welcome part of tile voyage Study the habits and origin of tho cuttlefish is one of the most Interesting which any scion tist over attempted The fish are propagated by means of eggs Tho tiny creature at first has only ono tentacle which when It grows older gradually divides into two and then Into four i7RANOGD DlVLFJH Pand after n year or so Into eight small arms Those grow larger and stronger as the age of the fish In creases Some adult specimens have been caught the tentacles of which were over 20 feet in length Jets of water squirted by means of fins con stitute tho method of locomotion of the cuttlefish Tho devilfishs choicest occupation Is that of feeding upon shoals of smaller members of the finny tribe and when Interrupted in this pursuit ho effect Is terrifying The great creature will toss several of Its tentacles to tho surface still continuing to feed with the rest of them and If this bluff tails to scare the Intruder away tho devilfish will come to the surface personally to see about It While next to human beings sharks are the greatest enemies of tho cuttlefish the scavengers ot the- CH sea are Just about as frightened by N s the tentacled monsters as tho latter aro by the sharks Mariners have often told of tho battles which they havo seen In clear water between these warriors of the briny deep but accounts telling of the victors are scarce Along the coast of tho Gulf of Mexico tho sharks snow their delight at the plight of the devilfish when caught by following in its bloody wake and with wideopen Jaws seeking a bite here or there from the carcass At night along tho coast they fight in tho water for the opportunity to consume tho dead devilfish after tho fishermen havo fin ished with him All In all devllflshlng Is tho most thrilling most hazardous most entrancing method of angling which has ever been discovered for the creature Is doubtless tho craftiest of tho Inhabitants of the tropical waters And tho man who goes after the scalp of the devilfish while he is not armed with modern accoutrements is taking his own life in his hand The plain hardware store hatchet with the short handle is declared to be the best weapon of defense in close quarters and dozens of lives have been saved because tho parties attacked were equlppej with hatchets and knew how when and to use them upon tho ar atomy of the dangerous fish UNCLE SAM SEEKS STAMP VENDER Will tho time over come when Uncle Sam can dispense with letter carriers The Increasing use of tho automobile the pneumatic tube and me chanical devices in the postal service would Indl cate that eventually some method of delivering mall will be found which will In a large measure do away with the present system of distribution Tho postotllce department has an annual appropriation which is used to experiment with mechan ical devices and every year the officials are called upon to Investigate tho practicability and utility of inventions There havo been hundreds of differ ent styles of mall boxes submitted and thero Is no end of devices designed for picking up mall bags by fast moving express trains Thero Is no doubt so exports say that the stampfixing ma chino will come into general use and they are equally certain that the government will adopt slot machines for the automatic sate of postage stamps as Germany and numerous other foreign countries have The department has made an offi cial trial of such machines- A little more than a year ago the postmaster general appointed a special committee of officials to make a thorough Investigation of the stamp vending machines Washington is now having Its extended public demonstration of these machines and other cities also will have a chanco to trj them for a long period under the direct supervl sion of tho postofilco authorities When the postmaster general decided to make experiments with stampselling machines ho in vited all persona with Inventive tendencies to sub mit models lIe did not confine the invitation to America Tho result was that some 75 machines were offered for experiment and tho postoffice committee had a long and tedious task In selecting those that appeared to bo practical After much investigation the committee selected a halfdozen machines for further test To tho owners or inventors of these six makes was given tho opportunity to make public tests of tho ven dens under the direction of tho department but at their own expense Finally threo different models were picked out for an extended public test at government expense Two of these raacnlnes are foreign inventions one a German machine and the other tho Invention of an Australian 130 DEAD IN STORM MIDDLE AND SOUTHERN STATES SWEPT BY

Temperance EXGOT Smith of Georgia has Issued a statement which proves Indisputably the enormous value of prohibition from an economic standpoint showing as It does that In spite of the recent great financial depression there Is mate rially more money In tho state treas ury since prohibition as a law went Into effect in the state His statement says Despite the fact that tho prohibition law caused a loss to the treasury of 240000 annually and despite last years panic the state collected from last years taxes over 500 000 more than It collected In Decem ben and the early months of 1907 from taxes of 1906 This Increase of rev enue came In part from compelling railroad and public service companies to pay more nearly tho amount of taxes which they Justly owed tile state than they paid before In previous yearsNext year the treasury should have to its credit between 500000 and GOO000 from ad valorem taxation In excess of the amount collected from the taxes of 1906 Not only has tho 240000 loss from liquor licenses been wiped out but a largo balance In addition has been given We will this year pay 330000 to the public schools In excess of any sum paid In previous yearsPoverty Is the Result of Drink Sir T P Whlttaker M P one of the most distinguished temperance advocates of Great Brlntaln refutes decisively tho claim of somo Investi gators Into social problems that the drinking habits among the poorer classes aro directly due to their condition of poverty Drinking ho states Is far more the cause of pov erty than poverty Is the cause t f drinking Tho largest consumption of drink is not among the very poorest Many of the poor are where they are because of the drinking of them selves and others but when they have sunk Into the direst poverty they aro not the heaviest drinkers They have not tho money There Is the most drinking and drunkenness when trade Is good and tho country Is pros perous It Is far moro prevalent In wealthy manufacturing and mining districts than In poor agricultural ones When trade Is bad tho drink bill falls rapidly and the arrests for drunkenness diminish greatly Speak- Ing broadly peoplo tlo not drink because they aro poor They are poor because they drink or because those with whom they are connected havo drunk and do drink The hardsfti trial of the heart Is iftiniier It can bear a rivals failure wilhotvc triumph Alkln
