that the former gnrernor IB repenting of his weakness in not passing the County Unit Bill during the last session of the legislature at the time when the Republican disorganization gave him n chance to do hand take the credit for it There iu no doubt that a majority of the voters of this state are in favor of temperance and no single issue could be chosen which would be so likely to bring victory to a party as that one Beckham shows great sagacity in taking hold of it and if he can succeed in convincing the people that he is in earnest will doubtless win on it if the Republicans allow him to steal their thunderThe great majority of the Republicans of Kentucky are temperance men and the party has repeatedly put itself on record as in favor of temperance The treachery of certain leaders has made it hard for the party to keep its record clear and there will be those in the next election who will blame the party for the leaders faults and charge that it has broken its pledges The only way to prevent this happening is for the voice of the party to be constantly clear and strong for every county to declare for temperance and for every convention of Republicans to go on record so when Beckham tries to go into a campaign on that issue ho will find the Republicans there before him Beckham is wise in taking this method of seeking a return to power The temperance issue is a moral one and the right side of every moral issue wins in the end for the people in general believe in righteousness The oulway to oppose him is to meet him fairly on the same groundand assure the people that he is no way ahead of us in respect to this thing- COMPLAINTS OF THE MAILS We often receive complaints from subscribers who do not receive their weekly copy of The Citizen regularly While it happens once in a while that some mistake has been made in this office we find that in about nineteen cases out of twenty the papers have been regular mailed here but thru some fault probably of the postalservice they hnve failed to reach the subscribers We have not been able to findwhy this is but are sure the trouble is not in the Berea post officeIt almost never happens that a paper which is once started to a subscriber is not mailed regularly We have a very expensive system of mailing to make sure that all the papers are sent every week and if it happens that your paper comes irregularly or two or three come at a time it is because of a fault of the post office and not of ours We wish to do everything we can to see that subscribers get the papers they have paid for and get them regularly and so we wish that any subscribers who do not get their papers regularly would let UR know We intend to make a complaint to the Post Office Department and see if something cannot be done to remedy I the conditions and the more complaints we get the easier it will be to find where the trouble lies So we will thank you to let us know I if there is anything irregular in the way your paper comes to you I DONT MISS ITIThere is no greater curse to this country than consumption and hardly a family but has been visited by the terrible plague The means of avoiding the disease and of

Letter Washington D C May 24 1909 On Thursday the Democrats and the Independent Republicans In the Senate held a lovefeast and plotted the complete and eternal downfall of Senator Aldrich and the opponents of the Income tax Senator Bailey and Senator Cummins agreed to a com promise form of an Income tax bill and they had the votes to put It through The newspapers announced that It was all over with Aldrich and that the tariff could not be defended brils friends On Saturday morning Sen Aldrich was back in the saddle and his foes were Iii worse condition than ever be fore during the session lie even felt strong enough to ask the Senate that the final vote be taken on June 2nd when everyone had supposed that he could not get his forces Into line until at least a fortnight later than that But Instead of the organization need ing time to prepare for the struggle it was the irregular Republicans and the Democrats who were asking for a few days respite In which to get to gether There will be at least two separate income tax bills now and It Is certain that neither of them can alone command the votes needed for passageThe Interesting subject treated by the tariff makers this week Is coal oil It appears that the Standard 011 Company wants oil to come Into the country free of duty They evidently have no fear of foreign competition It is said that they have bought up the wonderful rich new oil fields just discovered In Mexico and that they want to bring In the oil without cost From Europe comes the news that they have gotten control of the Aus trian fields and are soon to be equally victorious In Roumanla and Bul- garIa which compete with Russia for the continental trade On the other hand the Independent oil men In this country contend that free oil will kill them They are trying to get Miss Ida M Tarbell to take up their cause since It was she who exposed the mono poly of the Standard to some extent In the House there was a staunch Re publican minority of about 85 N men Continued on fourth rage S IN MEMORIAM They died to keep the nation one r For north for south their work was done And done to well that now we stand A great and undivided land Whole strength Is

later In Chicago In 1906 Cot Winter overheard Cary Mercer ap theIr Aunt Rebecca Winters millions A Miss Smith wag mentioned apparently as a Winter unexpectedly met a relate Mrs Mllllcent Melville who told him that hla Aunt tUbecca Archie and the Iatt fa Janet Smith were to leave for the west with the lv colonel and Mrs Melville A great finan I cial magnate was aboard the train on which Col Winter met his Aunt Ilebec ca Miss Smith and Archie lie set his orderly Ser Haley to watch over Cary thewwas snubbed Winter aided by Archlo i cleverly frustrated a holdup on the train Ho took a great liking to MIllS Smith her alleged connection f with the kidnaping plot which he had not yet revealed to his relative The party arrived In Ban Francisco It was thought that there were big persons behind the holdup gang Archie mysteri ously disappeared Fruitless search was conducted for Archie Blood In a near by room at the hotel caused fears for the boys life No headway wan made In the search for Archie Tho lads voice was heard over the telephone however and a minute later a womans voicethat of detectiveti CHAPTER VIIcontlnued Ills employers satire did not even flick the dust off Dlrdsalls compla coney ho grinned cheerfully ph Im not so bad as that I dont suppose she did kill the boy I think hes alive all t right but say colonel Ill give It to you straight I do think the senora coaxed the boy off You admit dont you ho went off Well then he was coaxed somehow Now whos got In fluence enough to coax him You cross out the maid so do I You cross out Mrs Melvillo Winter so do I I I guess we both cross out the old lady f Well theres you and the senora left II dont suspect you general I Really I dont see why I stand i Ut snake more than anybody else if iye Oro digging up motives And how i about tho chambermaid iii i Blrdsall flashed a glance of reproach on his companion Now colonel do rci think I aint looked her up1 First thing Nothing In it Decent Vermont CameIforlets get back to Miss Smith Did you slsterlnllIe delivered his shot In a casual wa and the colonel took it stonily nevertheless It went to the mark Blrdsall continued Now question Is was Mercer the secretary You didnt binti t 1 couldnt see Ho had different somothlnglikeBurney didnt get a chance to tako n snapshot but ho did snap the stove TVn Here It is Pull that book out or my pocket- Obeying the colonel lifted a couplo of small prints which ho scrutinized Intently at the end admitting Yes It Is he all right Now do you know what I think IIDlnlsn couldnt form an idea j c r lS VIl1 1 I think the Keatcham party is In it and I think they are after bigger game than Archie Maybe the train robbers were a part of the scheme although Im not so sure of that Oh the robbers wero In It all right But now come to Miss Smith where does she come In Or are you as sure ot her as Mercer was in Chi cagoIt he had expected to get a spark out of tho Winter tinder by this scra ping stroke he was mistaken the sol dler did not even move his brooding gaze fixed on the hills beyond the house roofs and be answered In a level tone Did you get that story from my aunt or was it Mrs Melville 3 Im pretty certain you got your bi ography from that quarter My aunt might have told her That would be betraying a ladys confidence Im only a detective whoso business Is to pry but I never go back on the ladles And I think sames you that the lady In question is a real nice bigh toned lady but I cant disregard the evidence I neve- give out my system but Ive got one aU the same Look hero sec thi- spaperhe had replaced the envelope- In his pocket ho pulled it out again or rather so tho colonel fancied until Blrdsall turned the envelope over revealing It to be blank Theres sheet ot paper inside take It out Look at the watermark look at the pattern then compare it with this letter handing the colonel the original envelope Same exactly aint theyThe colonel who bad studied the two sheets of paper silently nodded as silently and he bad a premonition of Blrdsalls next sentence before It came Well Mrs Melville Winter this morning took me to Miss Smiths desk whore we found this and a lot more like It You seem to be right in thinking the paper widely distributed ob served the colonel And you dont think that suspl ciousI should think It more suspicious if the paper were not out on her desk If she is such a deep one as you seem to think sho would hide such an in criminating bit of evidence She didnt know we suspected her Of course you havent shadowed her a little bllt- There is a limit to detective duty in tho case of a gentleman returned the colonel haughtily I have not Little BIrdsall sighed then In a propitiatory tone Well of course we both think there are other people In the job I dont know exactly what you mean by bigger game but I can make a stagger at It Now say did you got any answer when you wrote to Keatcham himself Yes said the colonel grimly I hoard You know the sort ofGetter I wrote telling him of our dreadful anx iety and about the lads being an or phan dont you think It was the sort of letter a decent man would answer no matter how busy ho might bet Sure Didnt you got an answer MW ILIUJTRATIOi OCTAVE THftNET AbTNOP 74wePCIo 7f1AN ljerHOU GOPrRJGHT ISOT aO SMIRRILL Co I did Tho colonel extricated him self from his wrappings enough to find a pale blue envelope which he handed to BIrdsall at the same time taking tho motor handle You see typo written very polite chilly Sort of let ter kind to make a man hot under tho collar and swear at Keatchams heartlessness Mr Keatcbam unable to an swer having been 111 since he left San Francisco Did not see anything of any boy Probably ran away Has no Information ot any kind to afford And the writer is very sincerely mine The minute I read it I was sure Mercer wrote it and ho wrote it to make mo so disgusted with Kctrtcham I wouldnt pursue the subject with him Just tho same way he snubbed my aunt and for that matter just tho way ho tried to snub me on the train But ho missed his mark I wired every hotel in Santa Barbara and everyone In Los Angeles and Keatcham isnt there and hasnt been there Ho has a big bunch of mall at Santa Barbara waiting for him forwarded from Los Angeles but ho hasnt shown himself BIrdsall shot a glanco of cordial ad miration at the colonel Youre all there general ho cried with un quenchable familiarity Ive been try Ing to call up the Keatcham outfit and I couldnt get a line either They havent used the tickets they boughtI their reservations went empty to Los Angeles Now what do you make cut of thatI out that Archlo Is only part of their game replied the soldier Now see BIrdsall you aro not going to get a couple of rich young college fellows to do just plain kidnaping and scaring women out of their money Lord general Interrupted Bird sail those college guys dont turn a hair at kidnaping they regularly steal the president of the freshman class and tho things they do at their hazing bees and Initiations would make an Apache Indian sit up and take notice I tell you general theyre tho limit for deviltrySomo kinds Not that kind Its too dirty Arnold was ono of tho clean est football players at Harvard And I dont know anything about human nature if that other youngster Isnt decent But Mercer es un loco you can look out for anything from him Now see the combination Arnold was at Harvard I have traced tho motor car they used to him and then If you add that his father la away safe In Europe and ho has an empty house off to ono side with a quantity of space around it and the reputation of being haunted why It looks good to me And I understand my men have got around It on the quiet all right Hows your man Haley got on hiring out to tho Jap In chargeWell enough the Jap took him on to mow but either Mr Caretaker doesnt know anything or ho wont tell lies bubbling over with conversation about the flowers and the coun try and the Philippines where he used to be but ho only knows that the hon orable family are all away and ho Is to shun the house Arent wo almost there justrthe patio a spook ot taste would freeze to- Why Is It haunted 1 Now you have me I aint on to such dream stuff Olmmo five cards soatalnt her and the house has only been built two years but the neighbors have seen lights and heard groans and a pick chopping at tho Stones Some folks say the land belonged to an old miner and ho died before ho could tell whero hed burled his mazuma so he Is taking a little buscar after It Theres tho house generalThe street climbed a gentle hill and on Its crest a largo house In mission style looked over a pleasant land Its position on a corner and the unusual size of tho grounds about it gave the mansion an effect ot space Of almost rawly recent erection though it was the kindly climate had so fostered the growth of the pines acacias and live oaks the eucalypti and tho orange trees which made a rich blur of color on the hillside had so lavishly tended the creeping Ivies and Bougalnvllleas which masked tho rounded lantern arches of tho stern gray facade and so sumptuously blazoned the flower beds in the garden on the one hand yet on tho other bad so cunningly dulled the greenish gray of tho cobble stones from California arroyos in chim ney and foundation and had so softly streaked the marble of the garden statues and the plaster of walls and mansion with tiny filaments of lichens or faint green moss that tho beholder might fancy the house to bo the an cleat home of some Spanish hidalgo handed down with a hereditary curse through generations to the last of his race One was tempted to such a flutter ot fancy because of the impres lion given by the mansion A sullen reticence hung about the place The windows for the most part were heavily shuttered Not a pane of glass flashed back at tho sunlight even those casements not shuttered turned r g v4 rv blank dark green shades like band aged eyes on the court and the beau tiful terraces and tho lovely sweep of hillsides where the wonderful shadows swayed and melted The bent figure ot a man raking distorted by the perspective was vis ible just beyond tho high pillars of the gateway lie paid no attention to tho motions of tho motor car nor did he answer a hall until It was repeated Then ho approached the car Blrdsall was In the roadway trying to unlock the gate The man whose Japanese features were quite distinguishable bowed he explained that the honor able owners were not at homo his insignificant self was the only keeper of the grounds lie spoko sufficiently good English with the accompaniment of a deprecatory amiable smile Bird sail In turn told him that his own companion was a very great gentle man from the cast who belonged to a society of vast power which was investigating spectral appearances and that ho had come thousands ot miles to see the ghost The Japanese extended both hands while the appeal of his smile deep ened Too bad telly ho murmured but not leally any glost no nev Dont you believe In tho ghost asked Col Winter No me Cllstian boy no believe notlngAll the sameo said the colonel laboriously swinging himself from his vantageground of tho motor seat to the flat top of the wall thence dropping to tho green sward below atlee samcc like go In house hunt ghost Ho crackled a bank note In the palm of the slim brown hand smiling and nodding as If to break the force of his brusque action Meanwhile BIrdsall had safely shut off his engine before ho placed himself beside tho others with an agility hardly to bo expected of his rotund build As for the caretaker whether because ho perceived himself outnum bored or because ho was really void of suspicion ho accepted tho money with outward gratitude and proffered his guidance through the garden and the orchards He slipped Into the role of cicerone with no atom of resist ance ho was volublo ho was gracious ho was artlessly delighted with his senora In spite ot this flood of suavi ty however there seemed to be no possibility ot persuading him to admit them to tho house Assured of this the two fell back for a second time for the merest eye flash from the detective to the soldier who at once limped briskly up to the Jap staying Vo are very much obliged to you this Is a beautiful house beautiful gardens but we want to see the ghost and if you can give mo young Mr Arnolds address I will see hlmor write and we can come backThe gardener with many apologies and smiles did not know Mr Arnolds honorable address but he drew out a soiled card explaining that it bore the namo of the gentleman In charge of the property BIrdsall peeping over the Japs shoulders added that It was the card of n wellknown legal firm Then said the colonel with do liberation we will thank you again for your courtesy andwhAts that Tho Jap turned they all started at tho barking detonation of some explo sion while they gazed about them there came another booming sound and they could see smoke pouring from the chimney and leaking through tho window Joints of a room in the rear of the house Like a hare not breaking his wind by a single cry the Jap sped toward the court The others were hard on his heels though the colonel limped and showed signs of distress by the time they reached tho great Iron door The Jap pulled out a key he turned It and swung the door barely wide enough to enter calling on them to stay out ho would tell them if be needed them- Augustly stay maybe honorable Move I he cried Hut the detective had Interposed a stalwart leg and shoulder Instantly the door swung open ho acted as It he had lost his wits with excitement Youre burning up Lordi yours burning Flrol Fire ho bawled and rushed boldly into tho room Winter followed him also calling aloud in a strident volco And it was to be observed being such an un usual preparation for a conflagration that ho had drawn a heavy revolver and ran with It In his hand Before he jumped out of the car he had die carded Ills thick topcoat and all his wrappingsAn also had there boon one near would have taken noto ot a robust Irishman who had been weed ing tho flowerbeds and would have seen him straighten at the first peal ot the explosion stare wildly at the chimneys before any distinct smoko was to bo seen then run swiftly and climb up to a low chimney on a wing of the house wateringpot In hand lie would have seen him empty his Inadequate fire extinguisher and rapidly descend the ladder while tho smoke volleyed forth as If defying his puny + W efforts later ho would have seen tho watering pot bearer pursue tho others Into tho house emitting noble yolls of Flro I and Help I Further this same observer had he been an Intimate friend of Sorgt Den ale Haley certainty would have recog nized that resourceful man ot war In tho amateur fireman CHAPTER VIII Face to Face When tho two men got Into the houso the dim rooms made them stum bio for a moment after tho brilliant sunshine of the outer skies but In n second Birdcalls groping hand had found an electric pushbutton and tho room was flooded with light They wore In a small office off the kitchen apparently Smoko of a peculiarly pungent odor and eyesmarting char actor blurred all the surroundings but during tho moment tho Jap halted to nxploro Its cause the others perceived two doors and made for them Ono was locked but the other must have been free to open since Haley with his watoring can bounded through while they wero tugging at tho ItII Almost Immediately however was back again shouting and down tho dark passage The fires there screamed the do tcctivo I can smell smoke I Tho smoke comes through the keybolo nut while the Jap fitted a key In the lock and swung back tho door and Haley who had paused to replenish his wateringcan at a convenient tau tho other two the aUdlltorysound Ho yelled Fire help at the top of his voice but not moving a muscle Too far off ho muttered then ho yelled again and throw a heavy chair as If he had stumbled against It Another pause ho got down on his knees to put his ear to the floor Directly he rose he did not speak but the words that he said to himself wore only Just possible Some one down cellar but not under hero Meanwhile he was hurrying In pursuit of the others as swiftly as his stiff knee would allow Ho found them In a side hall with tiled or brick floor gathered about a water soakod heap of charTed red paper TIs terribleI announced Haley a bum for sura a dlnnermlto bum I fishing out something like a tin tomato can from tho sodden mass Anyhow there goes the real thing

carelessly Simultaneously two brawny arms pinioned tho Japs own arms at his sidesShure Mister Samurai tis tho on grateful chap yours is expostulated Haley I hate to reshtraln ye but if ye thry any Jehujlts on mo twill be sahanara wid youso mighty quick No understan murmured the lap plaintively Why you hull me Come put out the fire first said the colonel you know the house you go ahead The Jap darted on ahead so swiftly that they had some ado to follow which seemed necessary since ht might have clashed a bolt on them at any turn The colonels stiff leg kept In the rear but Haley was never a hands breadth behind the runner They found smoke In two places but they easily extinguished the tiny flames In both cases tho bombs turned out to be no more dangerous than a common kind of fireworks yielding n suffocating smoke In an In closure but doing no special damage on sato and fireproof ground like n hearth They were quickly extln guished In their search they passed from ono luxurious room

figures of two in Pantry officers who had crossed swordsr In a duel to tho doath One of them J r s tit 4c wore the blue regimentals of tl northern army tho other was cla in confederate gray both were wart typical soldiers The artist ha caught tbo spirit of tho encounter his genius had endowed it with life action atmosphere The play pf tho muscles tho expression of tho faces the fire In tho eyes of the combatants woro wonderfully realistic Tho pic ture represented tho exact when the federal officer gaining a m mentary advantage over his sary was ending tho fight by drivin his gleaming sword through tho con federates body That painting said Col Brant earning up behind Cballoner and look- Ing over his shoulder Is no favorite of mine It memorizes an episode In my career as an army officer that I would glvo worlds to forget The art 1st was an eyewitness of the scene and his portrayal Is spoken of as the work of a master but I should have destroyed tho thing long ago it my sls ter had not begged permission to keep It My sister is Dorothys Aunt Mary you know Sho fully understands that It Is not to be displayed on the wall when I am In the house but I suppose this Is 11 caso of forgetfulness on her part Ho paused but Challoner did not speak or move In a sorrowful voice the colonel continued The plcturo is calculated to perpetu ate tho memory ot n most regrettable affair As you probably know one of the nastiest skirmishes of tho war took place only flvo miles from this spot Poplarvlllo was in a panic But wo managed to beat off tho enemy and they wero soon In full retreat with our boys In hot pursuit At tho very beginning of tho chase the horse ridden by the young colonel of a rebel regiment stumbled and felL I happened to bo closo behind this man when tho accident occurred and be quicklydlsmountod sistance as I might But apparently yellhomo with drawn sword Of course I had to defend myself Three times during the force fencing that ensued I begged him to desist and avoid un necessary bloodshed Twlco I was In a hairs breadth of being killed by his skillful onslaught but In tho end I was victorious and ho fell I intend ed only to disable him but unfortu nately my blado passed clear through his body Six weeks he was In the military hospital hero before ho finally succumbed and his body now lies In the Poplarvlllo cemetery By tbo way suddenly exclaimed tho colonel his name was Challoner Col Challoner tho some name as yountI believe My God sir I hope bo was not a relatlveaa Tbo words died on his lips for at that moment tho younger man turned slowly around and faced him Richard Challoner was palo as death his breath came In quick excited gasps his eyes shone with a fierce vindic tive glaro Ho was my father The words fairly hissed through his clenched teeth I am Col Challoncrs son And you were tho man who killed him youyouI By God sir you shall answer to mo for that acts Col Brant was struck dumb with horror My reason for coming to Poplar vlllo to begin my business career continued tho young man hoarsely was becauso my father lay In your cemetery hero I wanted to bo near himto caro for his grave I never dreamed He broke oft suddenly and seemed to restrain himself by a strong effort gestureitrusting himself to utter another word he strode from tho room At the foot of tho stairs ho met Dorothy who was waiting for him Tho sight of his white face and blazing eyes startled her- Richard Richard she cried lie brushed past her without an an swering sign took his hat from the rack and an Instant later the hall door closed behind him The day which custom has set aside for tho annual decoration of soldiers graves dawned bright and beautiful Poplarville was In holiday attire Tho air was freighted with tho perfume of lowers tho buildings werq gay with bunting lags foaled at half mast and tho Poplarville band discoursed pat triotic music In the public square Col Lewleton Brant mingled with tbo veterans of his post and not a few remarked his grave demeanor and tho unusual sadness that seemed to have down upon him Apparently bo had agol ton years In as many hours Col Brant delivered his Memo- rIal day oration with an eloquenco born of deep feeling and sincerity Ho moved all hearts by his simple touch Ing tribute to tho heroes who had laid down their lives In their countrys do fense and closed with this ap peal But while we are honoring our n f dead let us not forget the graves ot those other brave fellows whose rest- Ing place is In our cemetery the men who wero pitted against us in that a ful strugglewho fell as devoted ma tyrs to a cause which they believed to bo right Remember them also with your floweru your tears and your prayersIn secluded part of tho cemetery that afternoon Richard Challonor stood alone berldo i grave which was marked by a granite headstone boa ing tho name of his father So occ plod was ho with his own gloomy thoughts that ha did not notice tbo timid hesitating approach of Dorotby Brant until she was within a few feet ot him Ho straightened up then and greeted her with a solemn courtly bow while his cheek flushed The girl wan very palo and her eyes were red armfdul v

Inmoit Bout that I not only forgive your husband but I have already beciced his forglventia for forcing him to commit an act which he to deeply deplores Th fault was entirely my own and I alone am the one who should suffer Believe me I am profoundly sorry fur what hap pened and It Is not a sorrow that Is Irt rluenced by selfish considerations or the fear of death Since I have been In this hospital Col Brant has become my most valued and beat beloved friend What ha has done for me can never be told but he has made me realize that there are true gentlemen at the north aa well as In the south and

Practical Thought Philosophers have striven to discov er what faculty most clearly separates man from tits prate as that man is the only animal that laughs or the only animal that cooks or the only an imal that stands upright Most think ers however agree that the power of speech with all that has grown out of It Is the clearest and most important distinction of mankind and the surest Indication of the superiority that God has conferred upon the human race Tho passage wo are to study Is one ot the finest In the Bible and is the crown of all writings upon tho sub ject VB 1 2a Why did James urge his readers not to bo many masters teachers as In schoolmasters 7 I Because the young church met that danger continually see Acts 1524 1 Cor 112 1420 Gal 212 In the Jewish church tho function of the rab bl was jealously guarded but the liberty of prophesying teaching in Christianity was liable to become 11 cense And the more the idea pro vailed that faith without correspond ing obedience was all that Is needful the more men would eagerly press for ward to teachAlford This thought joins our present lesson with the last To Illustrate perfect speech to what does James compare the tongue To a horses bit or bridle which though small turns and governs the whole body of the great animal and similarly to a ships helm or rudder which though so small in comparison with the great ship and so weak In comparison with the fierce winds yet turns the ship in the faco of the winds whithersoever the governo- rIt V steersman listeth R V willeth Even so like the bridle and the rudder the tongue is a little member and boastcth great things vaunts great words which bring about great acts of mischief Alford What Is tho point of tho comparl son The power of the tonguo in the guidance and direction of lIfeour own lives and those of others And we are never to forgot that the tongue includes the pen Deems What is the next comparison used by James Tho tonguethat world fromda to the eye but a little fire can kindle a great forest So the tongue can ruin the whole body nay the whole life in its revolving course from tho cradle to tho grave Tho tongue Is called a world of Iniquity because all kinds of evil that are in the world are exhibited there In ml0latureBarnes- What Is the point of this comparl son It pictures the destructive power of tho tongue as the first two comparl sons pictured the tongues guiding ofeair are Insignificant as small sparks but as tho flame and smoko may spread everywhere so the baneful ef fect of evil speech may penetrate all lifeWhat Is James next comparison of the tongue To an untamed beast all other living things have been mastered by mankIndthe four divisions of ani mals according to James rough zoology namely quadrupeds birds isaonly God who made It can keep It under control It Is an unruly rest loss evil full of deadly poison and so to be classed with the animals most hated and feared the serpents What Is the point of this com pari dson T As the first emphasized the guiding power of the tongue and the second its destructive power so this comparison emphasizes its unre strained power U the tongue cannot be tamed are ungovernede1V10 These things ought not so to be If wo be truly Christs though reviled by the unruly tonguea of others we shall like him revile not again 1 Peter 223 And as the whole body Is the Lords to be sancti fed to him 1 Cor 619 20 so particularly must the tongue be kept from evll speaking lying and slandering and used rightly for the service of God Thus may we truly offer the calves of our lips Hos 142 more acceptable than tho blood of victims slain on a thousand altars Elllcott Why does James drop comparisons when ho corner to his last point T Be causo there are no comparisons in na ture to mans inconsistency In speech only contrasts Tho constancy of nature was us well known In James day as in ours But the tongue is sadly different Out of tho same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing What Is the point of this contrast Evil speech has been pictured as 1 influential 2 destructive 3 uncon trollable and now finally as 4 unnatural Men ue made after the similitude of God The nature of man la to adore God ants to love what Is Godlike in man Evil speech contra diets jour nature and your destiny to speak ill of others makes you a mon ster In Gods world get the habit of slander and then there Is

farmer should have a gar den its size should depend upon the number of people to be fed One acre will supply ten people with almost all the things needed to set a good table This garden should be locat ed near the house so that the work of cailng for it can be done at spare times which would otherwise be wasted Good natural drainage is very important the surplus water should run oft without washing the soil with It Too much water keeps the ground cool and makes a late crop Before planting the garden we should decide on the kind of cultiva tion that is to be used Where the work is to be

crops If there is any variation in the composition ot the soil it should be considered In locating the various crops The low moist land should be used for onions and especially late varieties of other vegetables The high dry soil Is better for the early crops and those that need warm soil Plants that develop a large part under the ground such as beets turnips and potatoes should be located where the soil is loose and I sandy Tomatoes beans and peas grow better on the heavier soils I I Many of our garden plants require only a short season to develope and as a result two or three crops can be raised on the same soil in a single year It is not best to have a second planting of the same crop follow the first but a change in the kind of plan used should be made For example beets should not follow potatoes nei ther should beets follow beets Beans or peas are better to follow potatoes as they bear fruit above the ground Rotation saves the soil To be con tinued THE HUMMING BIRDS Some

every seven who die In the United States die of consumption Last year over 6000 people died in Kentucky sit consumption Every person should know the following facts about this dreaded disease- COnsUtlllltion is seldom hereditary Tho disease is seldom present at birth but Is caught from some one whether father mother sister or aunt or a stranger who lives in the same houseConsumption Is caused by a germ This germ Is so small that hundred of thousands may be on tho point ot a lead pencil and still be Invisible to the naked eye These germs are present In large numbers In tho spit and bowel movements of the people sick with consumption The only way consumption can be caught Is by this spit and faecal matter which la deposited on the ground or spit around on floors or walks there to dry and be carried In tho air ta lust or to be carried on the feet ot riles and deposited on food dishes and drinking cups If the spit and movements of a con sumptive are both destroyed or thoroly disinfected and burned or burled no one can take the disease from him Therefore when any ono takes con sumption it Is because these waste matters are not destroyed and It is some ones fault It Is not an accident It is not divine providence but it Is due to some bodys carelessness in allowing his spit to get on floors wall drinking vessels or dishes and so in fect the next person who conies In contact with these things The spit cau be destroyed by spit lag directly into the fire or by spit ting Into squares of paper and then burning the paper Consumptives should never spit on the floor ground or anywhere files can get Into it or where it will dry nnd get into the dust The bowel movements should never be thrown or deposited on the ground but Into a privy and covered at once with wool ashes or lime to keep the files away- Consumptives should have their own individual dishes cups knives forks and spoons Also towels for the safety ot those in the Saute household Consumption can be

encampment was a very pleasant and successful one The annual address of the Department Commander Professor Dodge occupied over half an hour and was repeatedly applauded It showed an Increase dur ing the past year of 12 paid up posts and 292 members besides a general Improvement In promptness harmony and G A R enthusiasm Prof Dodge has sewed two years as Department Commander the only one in the Department of Kentucky to be elect ed for a second year He received the unusual compliment ora rising vote of thanks for his services He turned down many suggestions to be a candidate for a third term

of the new posts organized by Professor Dodge BIG STATE DEFICIT Frankfort Ky May 21When the next General Assembly meets it Is safe that the Governor will ask that provisions be made to pay a deficit which Is growing rapidly and at that time will be between 2000000 and 2500000 Just how this deficit shall be met Is one of the important questions the next General Assembly will have to take up The state now has no bonded Indebtedness and during the last four years redeemed the bonds which had been Issued It Is probable that a raise In the tax rate wll be made from BO cents on each 100 to 55 or 60 cents I unless some other means In the way of Issuing bonds or providing other revenue raising methods Is adopted The last General Assembly appropri ated 136616763 above the ordinary expenses of the government and there has been paid ot this amount to date 5474641D by Auditor James leaving- a balance outstanding of more than 800000 ot this amount yet unpaid The total receipts for the current year with May and June estimated to June 30 1909 will be678278449T- otal expenditures May and June estimated 700109760 21831301 Add deficit June 30190814985165- Total deficit June 30 1909 36816466 This dont Include 500000 borrowed from the sinking fund 200000 for the State University at Lexington I 150000 for Western Normal school and 10000 for the Henry Clay monu ment and part of the appropriations made last winter Taking all of these Items together with the fact that 112 17595 of the 460000 appropriation- for the completion of and furnishing the new Capitol building It will readl ly be seen that the deficit will readily amount up to the first named fig uresWHO PAYS FOR ADVERTISING I The chief reason that we can afford to sell goods at such low prices ls that we do not have an annual advertising j expense This bit ot specious reasoning met our eye the other day and we stopped- to think it over The inference to be conveyed Is that firms soughtI vertise are making their pay for the advertising It struck us i that the inference was false and the premise equally false Wo made Inquiry We found a case of a druggist in Louisville who doesInot advertise On investigation It dovveloped that he was running his bust l ness at an expense of about 700 1 monthly exclusive of what he spent fupon stock Ills net profits amounted to about 300 monthly p We sought out another druggist who advertises freely His expenses exclusive of stock and advertising were about the same as the first mans On advertising be was spending about 300 monthly His net profits were nearly 700 monthly or more than double his competitors and he runs a cutrate store In which he sells many articles at a lower price than the man who thinks he saves money by avoiding publicity k Obviously the second mans customIers do not pay for his Equally obvious It Is not an expense to him since his profits are almost 1 double that of the first mans Who or what does pay for It There is but one answer The advertising pays for itself It is not an expenditure It 1s an investmentsThe public will do well to be SllStpicious of the merchant who says i can sell more cheaply than others because he does not Advertise Therprobability Is he Is saving on quality of his goods or the efficiency of his service and It Is almost a certainty that he will be crowded out of business by his more enterprising com petitors before his profits have reached a total big enough to make retirement comfortableEx Eclipses of Sun and Moon In each 223 lunar months there art 29 eclipses of the moon and 41 of the sun

ATTENDS CHARLOTTE CELEBRATION Three Days Carnival in the North Carolina City Mara the Anniversary of the Famous Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence Charlotte N CWith three days of military drills band concerts speeches athletic contests and other kinds of entertainment the one hunt dred and thirtyfourth anniversary o the Mecklenburg declaration has been celebrated and all North Carolina in happy in the knowledge that Its pe legend has been recognized by tho president of the United States for Mr Taft gave tho occasion tho official sanction of his presence and was tas chief featuro of the celebration Tho carnival began Tuesday noon when tho Charlotte fire companies gave an exhibition of their skill and speed At three oclock thero was a drill by a body of United States cavalry and a band concert at tho fairgrounds followed by a league ball game The evening was given up to a drill by the Charlotte drum corps and a concert by three bands Governors Day Program Wednesday was designated as govs ernors day and tho main event the delivery of addresses by GOT KItchin of North Carolina and the chief executives of several othe states at the fair ground These wcro preceded by a big athletic meet and followed by a cavalry drill military maneuvers and band concerts with another ball game thrown in for good measure Two events made the evening not able The first was a May musical festival at the Auditorium which en listed the services of a number of ex I rI 1 President Taft cellent soloists and a large and well trained chorus The second was at Illuminated parade given by the Order of Red MenPresident Taft Arrives Just at ten oclock Wednesday morning the booming of a 21gun sa lute by tho Charlotte artillery notified the people that President Taft had arrived on his special train Nearly all the inhabitants and the thousands of visitors were at the station and asIMr and Mrs Taft alighted from theirI car they were greeted with a mighty roar of applause A special recep Uon committee took the distinguished guests in charge and conducted them to the Selwyn hotel where they were welcomed by Gov Kitchln Senators Simmons and Overman and tho mayor ofCharlotteAfter all the committeemen and their wives Mr and Mrs Taft together with Mrs Stonewall Jackson the governor and mayor and other distinguished visitors were escorted by a guard of old soldiers to a review Ins stand and witnessed a great parade of all tho military and civic or ganizations that could take part In theI celebrationMr Taft Speaks Twice A second installment of the music festival In the

frequently elicited loud applause Later in the afternoon the president made a speech to tho colored people and the students of DIddle university From 8 to 930 in tho evening Mr und Mrs Taft held a public re coition In the parlors of the SelfI wyn hotel and shook hands with thou sands of people Military drills band concerts and other entertainments were provided for the crowds all Wednesday afternoon and evening and the great cele bration closed In a blaze of glory Old Controversy Renewed The people of North Carolina whose proudest boast has been that their an cestors were the first Americans totthrow off tho yoke of British rule now rejoice fn the feeling that President Taft has recognized the justice of claim but the centuryold con troversy has broken out afresh IIll1nyI refuse to accord to the plo of Mecklenburg county the honor that is thus accorded thorn These historians allude to the story ns the Mecklenburg myth and thereby arouse the anger of North Carolinians According to those unbiased investl gators who have looked most deeply Into the matter ae Mecklcnburgers did hold a public meet g on May 81 1775 and did adopt resolutions I quite abreast of the public sentiment of that time but not venturing on t field of independence further than toaday that these resolutions were to ref main In force till Great Britain r signed its pretensions In 1793 or earlier some of tho actors In tho pro- t ceeding endeavored to supply tho rep ord from memory unconsciously talon mingling some of the phraseology of the Declaration of July 4 which gave tho resolution the tone of a pronounced Independency Probably through another dimness of memory they affixed the date of May 20 177S to them Case for Mecklenburger The case for the Mccklenburgers is set forth as follows In 1818 thero arose a great rivalry between Massa chusetts and Virginia as to which com monwealth should receive the credit for tho Philadelphia document an the controversy was brought up 1 congress It was at thin time that Davidson a representative In gress from North Carolina announced that Mecklenburg county had declarer her Independence 13 months before the promulgation of the document in Philadelphia While tho statement created some surprise It resulted In an lnveati gar tion into the facts as to the Mecklen burg declaration This Inquiry was made by Nathaniel Macon who pro resented North Carolina in tho senate and through Gen Joseph Graham and Itepresentatlve Davidson Senator Ma con received from Dr Joseph McKnltt Alexander the son of John McKnltt Alexander a full account of the event which Dr Alexander said ho had copied from papers left by his father This statement which in cluded the May 20th declaration Sean tor ilacon sent to Raleigh N C and It was published In tho Register on Friday April 30 1819 Dr Alexanders Story Dr Alexander related at length ho tho farmers of Mecklenburg county in tho spring of 1775 had called a con ventlon to be composed of two dal gates from each settlement In t6 county to meet May 19 to devise means for the assistance of tho suf feting people of Boston and to cate themselves from the Impendla- storm Official news by express a rived
