on Iourth rage OUR STATE MOTTO Oil the great seal of the state of Kentucky appears this motto as expressing the sentiment which should he foremost in the heart of every Kuutuckian United we stand divided wo fall For progress civilization wealth and good citizenship no state could have a better motto No state has as good a one And yet it is a motto which is forgotten in this state more often than anywhere else perhaps and that is one reason why this grand old state which has people as fine as ever breathed with all the elements of success in them and natural advantages such as few states have with the purest English blood in the world and a tradition of greatness unexcelled is still far from first among the states of today There is too much division An old old story is told of a wise man who when he lay dying called to him his six stalwart sons Handing to the oldest a bundle of six sticks ho asked him to break it The man tried in vain and the others also tried but without so much as cracking a single stick Then he told them to try together and the united strength of the six was not enough to produce the slightest effect The old man then cut the thong that held the bundle and giving ono stick to each sun again bade them try their strength And each easily broke his stick IISeo my sons said the old man and remember well for this counsel is worth more than all the wealth 1 shall leave you So long as the bundle was together no strength of yours could harm it but when the sticks were taken one at a time each was easily destroyed It is so with you Together you will be invincible and will all sue ceed but if you allow dissensions to divide you all will fail No truer words were ever spoken It is so in all walks of life A dozen soldiers acting together are worth a hundred men in a mob no mutter what their courage Two men fighting back to backcan defy a crowd which would cut one to pieces in a moment A timber made up of several planks bolted together is far stronger than if it is a single piece And oven in politics that Is so for the Republican party today owes much of its success to the fact that it has stuck together while the Democrats are disorganized And if the G 0 P shall fail this year it will be simply because the ambition of some men has driven out of the party other men who were its strength And yet tho we know all these things we do not act on them We are looking every man for himself and are too much afraid that some other fellow will get a little more out of what is goingon than we do When a state convention comes along we see that Bradley or who ever is manipulating the convention can always get part of the moun tain men to fight the other part and the result is that the mountains do not get the share either in influence or office to which their number and stalwart Republicanism entitle them When we once learn that the welfare of one is the welfare of all that one poor man is a burden on the whole community and that the enriching of one man helps all kinds of business then we shall begin to take our rightful place for wo shall then have mastered the first lesson And one of the first signs of it will be increased political activity in every county for public works which will helpall and in increased political power where our united strength will overcome all resistances Let us remember that as Kentuckians we are entitled to this groat motto and let us live up to ill United we stand divided we fallt an if no on to to J fis to is to 1 to DO YOU KNOW III d a deposit five ft ten at 4 per

store In Russia On his journey through Japan he met Stapleton Neville supposedly an Englishman They agreed to together to Russia Because of BUS plclops circumstances they were several tlmeJs molested by the Japanese Hardy was arrested and found upon Ms person wore papers showing maps of Jap forts I Hardy was proven guiltless On a train he met Alsomo 8ano daughter of a Jap merchant In Nevlllos shoos Jap found pictures of forts proving him to he a Russian spy Hardy departed for Rus sia on a steamer whIch was wrecked shortly afterward He was rescued by a Russian steamer On reaching Vladivostok he was well treated lIe started I for Siberia meeting Princess Romanovna on the train Hardy boarded a vessel for Amur Hardy showed the princess his oxpcrtness as a rifle shot The steamer wan stranded The princess and her maid were attacked by Chinese Hardy saved their lives The princess thanked Hardy for his heroism CHAPTER XIV An Exchange of Compliment The method of loshat and lotka was out of tho question now even for Gen Catkoff Tho wild bandits of Manchuria who respect no govern ment on earth and whoso only patrl otic sentiment consists In tho fact that they would rather kill a Russian than any other foreign devil were aroused and were thirsting for loot nod vengeance It would be courting death to go up that river unless es corted by a troop of cavalry More over It was the duty of every man about tho boat to remain by tho prln cess side Reinforcements were sure to arrive in tho shape of muzhiks or Bouriats who impatient of remaining oil tho stranded steamer below had pushed on afoot or by lotka was always tho chance too ThereI squad of Cossack cavalrymen come along following tho military road a long stretch of which was vis ible from tho boat between the skirts I of the forest and tho edge of the river In addition to Hardy and the gen eral and the captain thero were on board five members of the crew Weapons could be provided for all of these Tho captain took a hurried inventory and found that with economyI thero was enough food to last all hands five days Jta the first day wore on an occasional horseman could bo seen on tho Manchurian side in the dim foreground of tho forest These horsemen appeared singly at first then in twos and finally in groups of three or four They were evidently Increasing In numbers and collecting In tho vicinity of tho stranded steamer Toward evening Smulders and hisI Chulla came along The German had persuaded tho Viennese to em bark with him In a lotka and they had made nearly as great progress as tho steamer with its frequent delays on account of the sandbanks and tho necessity of taking on wood They had como on perfectly unconscious of danger and probably owed their Im munity to the fact that they bad stuck close to tho Siberian side to which tho Chinese did not often cross We vIII stay here declared Smulders when Hardy explained to him the danger of continuing tho Jour noy and I vill fight for my Chulla I till I die How is your suit coming on1 asked Hardy smiling Sho must like you pretty well or sho would not come up tho river with you Ah she vould have come up tnlt a Russian so I come along mlt the only to lotka and she have to como mlt mo- She vIII not much and I have no peevo so I think I go mad Ach I loather very heavy to Nothing happened that night savemtho arrival of four Bouriats of bonyhorsewith the captain two of them mounted tho animal and rode out to tho boat They wero armed with short rifles Thoyturnedshore and was used by tho other two as a living ferry ono this time cawhileanimals tall In tho morning six Manchurians tho rode down to the waters edge and began firing at tho boat Tho distance the was long and they shot wildly not putting Hardy and his friends In any great danger though they made their intentions perfectly plain Tho Prln I cess Romanovna attired In the gown of light blue and the hat trimmed with me blue flowers stood by the generals side eyeing tho scene with calm in terest twirling her open parasol care reAsIytime minof the company had Increased from nix to 20 Hardy became convinced that tho Chinese intended to attack4 when their number should become sufstflclently great and hero by a strange tho freak of chance ho found himself uc tlvely Involved n tho ancient and un and ending war between Russia and Asia a mixed up in a fight to tho deathm which was as much his fight as it was thdWill you he said to the princess 1 convey a slight suggestion to tho general for m07 I make it In all humility Sho looked at him inquiringly as ho explained As a result some of tho men were set to work dragging up mattresses and bedding and piling them against the rail to form a bar tirade This work was not more than half completed when the brigands made their first attack Emboldened by the accession of half a dozen re cruits they deployed in a long lino and swinging their rifles about their heads they como galloping on through the shallow water of tho river tho chief well in advance The general gave a quick sharp order and his lit tie army tell on their knees behind the half Ilalsted barricade on tho top of which they rested their rifles Evidently being a good soldier he- adh ordered tho men not to fire till tho enemy should get close Smulders Rifle Dropped Into the had no rifle but he seized a stout boathook shod with a sharp Iron point had sank on his knees shout- Ing They shall never get my Chulla On camo the wild line splashing through the water which was now up the horses knees When they had traversed about onethird of the distance they stopped and took aim The general spoko sharply the princess who sat down on the behind the barricade At this oment the brigands fired and several tho bullets passed over the boa and splashed in tho water on tho farther side One struck the smokestack with a pluff and another evidently flattened by its impact with the water hummed musically The of general stood erect without flinching repenting some order to his men Hi voice sounded affectionate almost ressing Hardy raised his rifle and measured he say he asked o princess kneeling by her Not yet my children not yet Nowsald the American you can do something for me If you will I think can hit the chief now Ask tho gen eral as a special laver to you to le tryI The Manchurians sat silent upon their horses shading their oyes with their lands to see If possible the of their volley The princess to the general and spoke hurried to him and tho latter and at Hardy The American ad eted his pincenez and raised his to his shoulder It was a long shot but ho had done better in tho Adlrcndacks at deer Ills nerves wero good and his muscles as tense as Just as bo was about to press trigger the chief swung his rifle about his head pointed at the beat came plunging on again It was moro difficult matter now as the was in motion Yet he was n splendid mark looming bIg and dark against tho bright water with a of two of vivid color about him evidently ribbons or a sash Hardy shot and tho chief still came on followed by his mon shouting Ilko tongueThoresult Then he swore softly a good hon est Saxon oath removed his eye glasses wiped his eyes with his hand kerchief replaced his glasses laid his cheek on his weapon and shot a third time The chiefs rifle dropped into tho yellow Amur his arms fell to his side and he plunged over his horses flank headfirst into tho water The animal whirled about and charged on tho line behind him dragging hIs riders body which hung by one stirrup Tho other brigands turned and followed their leaders body to the bank and into tho dark Manchurian woods The princess approached Hardy and extended her hand- I you monsieur she The Chiefs Yellow AmurI deliberately distanceWhat turned disappeared congratulate said on your splendid marksman shipI take your hand madame he replied but I cannot accept tho con gratulations It was very bad shoot ing My only excuso is that this is tho first time I have used this rifle Smuldors dropped his boathook to the deck and running up to tho Amer ican seized both his hands in his tnt pink palms You have saved my Chulla ho sobbed att afternoon and at night before tho moon arose tho besieged received an important recruit A man heard wasdcome on tacoswere on but ho thought ho recognized tho speakingRussian afterfprincess to her cabin Mr Hardy sho said in French this Is my cousin Doris Romanoff I take pleasure In Introducing two Hardytbraved tho most fearful dangers to reach my side When ho arrived at belearnedso he did not wait a moment but fairly flew up tho river Had ho werebysuch anxiety Hardy took this last remark as aim ply complimentary to himself and the acknowledgedho know that Doris Romanoff was a suitor for his fair cousins hand who was n cousin far removed attar all thobIglous and seemingly innocent ways This is MI unexpected pleasure Mr Hardy said Romanoff in English extending his hand I hardly hoped to meet you again in Russia I feared c i you would not bo shin to break away from tho fascinations of tho geisha girls who so strongly appealed to you Hardy ignored the hand- I believe that you played a scoun drelly trick on mo In Japan ho said looking Romanoff coolly in the eye and speaking with groat calmness but I am content for tho present to pass it by Inhsupposo you have your own codo as a gentleman Ac cording to mine it is our duty now to sink all private differences and unlto In tho rescue of this lady from a most perilous position You are right replied Romanoff becoming insolent an addition to tho crew is not to be despised at a time like this especially a follow who can shoot as you can You ought to open a gallery in Petersburg Youd make your fortune Ho turned his back rudely but looked over his shoulder to add But let us have no misunderstanding Nothing you can do hero will prevent my finding out why the Japanese wero so friendly to you and what you are really doing in Russia CHAPTER XV Burning Arrows On deck all was silence save for the whispering bubbling and plash- Ing of tho treacherous Amur or tho occasional cry of some lone water fowl high overhead following tho course of tho river Hardy coming above otter his interview with Romano found tho general on watch Two of tho men also wero awake and wero listening and peering into tho dark ness with a vigilance that proved that they understood that their own lives as well as tho lives of all on board depended on their alertness The American also listened and watched straining his eyes to seo If hero and there In tho darkness darker forms could be seen of tho too stealthily ap- proachIng Hardy had not been standing on the deck moro than 20 minutes when be felt a hand laid lightly upon his arm It was so dark that bo could not distinguish the outline of tho form standI 1 and Ing by his side but ho knew with out around that this was tho princess Wo must not speak loud she whispered the general has com manded absolute silence Ho could steel her warm breath on his check and her hair brushed his brow I came to say that you must not mind my cousin I saw at glance that be docs not like you and I think I under stand tho reason What reason could he have for not liking mcf asked Hardy I assure you I never did him any Intentional harm Ho is very brave Is my poor cous tn and ha Is furious that It was you and not ho who saved my llfo from tho brigands Bear with him I beg of you lie will como to his senses In a day or two and will himself thank youFor your sake whispered Hardy r I will endure anything from Inast until wo havo rescued you this danger tromI A small hand crept down his found his hand and pressed it Morel mon amt whispered tho princess At that moment a splash was henrd by tho side of tho boat Go below said Hardy in a voice of command tho voice that a real woman likes to hear sometimes from n real man and ho lightly to tho spot Ho could see nothing could hear nothing more but ho found tho general standing at tho place which was on tho downstream side gazing into tho water For a moment Hardy had confidently expected to coo n throng of Chinese climbing up tho sides If this splash had the arrival of tho enemy however there was nothing In tho generals demeanor to betray tho fact Ho did not move did not awake the sleeping crow but turned with a sigh and crossed tho deck He was stopped by tho princess who walked with him torn few seconds Ho has sent ono of the crow Sten ka Pugacheff down the river for help she said to Hardy Bravo Stenka Ho hopes to get far enough In tho darkness to escape the eyes of the band which is hero and then ho will take to the woods Is ho not a hero this simple Cossack It is 30 vorsts to the military station and thero Is death waiting for him at every stop A light flashed and went out 30 or 40 yards below and Immediately a blazing object described an ate through tho air and fell on the deck not far from their feet One glance was enough to show that tho object was an arrow which freighted with some highly Inflammable material was sticking in tho deck and burning like a candle It cast con sidrablo light Hardy leaped to snatch it but ere he reached It ono of tho Cossack soldiers anticipated him and throw tho blazing missile into the river Just as ho was In tho act of seizing it several shots rang out a He Threw the Gun to His Shoulder Firedolooking a possible stepped Indicated collected upright and tho man wart slightly wounded In the arm as was discovered later for tho bravo follow made no outcry tho time Tho general sprang to It10tallprincess side took her by tho arm and turned her toward the gangway speaking kindly but firmly to her Da dal sho replied and left tho deckTho first arrow was but the sor of n shower of 20 or were tho jority of which either passed far ov the vessel or fell short thus proving that tho accuracy of the first shot had been largely tho result of a lucky guess Ono of the arrows stuck fast In trail ho and a sailor broke It off by strik ing it with a long polo Tho rlflo vol dAd ley of which It was tho precursor did no damage as moat of tho Russian were either lying on their stomachs raiorvised bulwarks Then wero evident f about 30 Chinese shooting arrows ac companied by from six to ten riflemen If they wero trying to set fire to tho boat or merely to light It up soIthat they might pot at Its occupants from the safety of tho darkness It soon became evident that their scheme was not destined to prove highly successful Tho mop for ono thing made themselves plainly visible for an instant or so while they were scratching their matches and applying tho burning arrows to tho string They kept shooting now sporadical ly First hero and thorn and then In some other spot a red fitful light would gleam for an Instant dyeing n patch In the river bloodred by Its radiance and revealing a wild sav agelooking Mongolian armed with great bow and quiver who flicked view for a moment and as soon Intoeswallowed up again by darkness Hardy not understanding tho gen orals orders reasoned that ho would ho pardoned for acting under his own It ho wore going wrong he reflected It would bo easy to stop him Ho therefore hold his rifle ready for ac tlon as n man who Is expecting a covey of quail to rise and stood watching the water alert tense keen as a cat about to spring Ills chance camo anon when ono of those lights j flashed nearly in tho direction of his i gaze and not far away Ho throw the gun to his shoulder and fired Ho could not sea tho sights but ho could make out the object plainly And he know ho should not go far wrong lie missed for tho Chinese standing about waistdeep In tho water fitted the arrow to the string and discharged It Tho shot rang out loud and clear It seamed to Hardy that ho had never heard a rifle make such n loud report before Tho general exclaimed Monsieur lardy ahl and made no further comment so tho American continued his shooting once twice throe times Meanwhile the attacking I party seemed to bo approaching n lit tie nearer and they succeeded In lodg Ing several of their burning missiles In tho woodwork of tho boat one ar row In the rail two In the side of tho wheelhouse and ono In tho hull These swore broken off almost as soon as they stuck and did no damage for strange to say the Chinese them selves bad ceased firing their rifles And now Hardy had tho Inex pressible Joy of killing one ot tho I attacking party who tell backward Into tho water with his blazing arrow In his handIIm muttered I shall be able to do It more frequently now Perhaps I alone can stop them A moment later he heard sudden shouting tho sound of running feet snarls of rage and tho splash of heavy I bodies falling Into tho water A party of Chlneso that had crept down from above in rowboats was attempting to croWI 0ICHAPTER XVI Battle by Moonlight Tho burning arrows had been version as tho books on tactics to draw the attention of tho little aayIot defenders and occupy It on tho downstream side while an other attacking party crept up undercover of darkness and boarded from above But for tho fact that tho wily old general fearing tho trick had kept a guard stationed at that the ruso might have succeeded sldolfcctly Tho boat as wo havo seen was swung diagonally across n sort beingImbeddedcoming down stream In three boats struck her at either end rowjnear the middle their evident tion being to spread tho Russians out as much ns possible At this moment a frayed and worn old moon floated up out of tho Si berian forest Hardy saw by its light wide expanse of water dimly shin Ing between ghostly forests he saw several Mongolian heads covered with round black caps looking over tho side of tho boat ho saw Julius Smulders whirl a heavy oak polo in tho air and bring it down on ono ot these heads with terrific force ho saw ono of the Bouriats cleave anther head no completely that one trait stood erect for a second while tho other toll over the victims vhoul dlaatwas In tho ho saw n gigantic Manchurian with a long twohanded sword leap aboard to bo thrust through by a bay onet lunge Just as his feet struck tho deckrwithhtheer Mirage

living from half a dozen to a dozen men who may bo said to havo known Abraham Lin coin Intimately and personally Of all these for 1 mer associates of tho martyr presi dent however none can rival Col Wil liam H Crook In tho possession of vivid and unique recollections of the war president Moreover Col Crooks reminiscences of the most Interesting portion of his long public career have 1boon kept over fresh In his memory by service at tho White House In Washington of which ho has been an attache for more than twoscore years and whero ho constantly sees objects and Incidents that remind him of the kindly executive who occupied the presidential mansion when ho first took up his duties there Col Crook who Is now in his seven Beth year has been for a long time past tho disbursing officer of the prod r dentlal business establishment but during the Lincoln administration he was the presidents bodyguard and thus naturally came more closely and continuously In contact with the great otherItwenty years of ago when the civil war broke out and as soon as he was 21 ho unlisted In the union army At the expiration of his term of enlist ment he secured a position on the police thatIforce at the national capital and It I + guard of the chief magistrate IUnder present conditions the presi the United States need scarcely exchange a word with his secret service protectors who usually walk or ride some little distance behind him but Lincoln was wont to Insist that his bodyguard walk by his side after the manner of a personal friend rather than an official protector The presi dent took Quito a fancy to Crook who was young and as ho confesses a t trifle bashful at the outset In his walls about the capital and his nightly tramps from the White House to the war department there was no tele graph olllco at the White House In those days and tho president went to the department to got the war news at first handLincoln talked on a variety of subjects with bodyguard Crook and oven discussed at times the possibility of some person attempting to do him harm Col Crooks recollections of the president on these night pilgrimages to the news center portray n tall figure wrapped In a rough gray shawl and wearing a tall beaver hat Often kindly sympathetic chief tbeI would draw his bodyguard to his and walk hand in hand or arm In arm with the younger man When Crook was on duty at night at jI the White louse ho would take his 1 station after the president retired In tho corridor on the second floor of the mansion upon which the presidents BodyJopened Often as ho paced Ibedroomdown ho could hear the great or moan in his sleep after a day of unusual anguish and anxiety Occasionally ho would have to awake tho sleeper to deliver some important telegram but Crook declares that Lin cola never displayed any Irritation at such Interruptions On one occasion j when ho entered tho presidents room in response to tho usual Come In ho was surprised to find Lincoln busily engaged In sowing a button on his trousers Just repairing damages explained tho droll president with a half cmllo Crook who had been on duty all day with the president did not accom pany Lincoln to Fords theater on tho night ot the assassination Ho always refers to his absenco on this occasion with deep regret for he had a special system o his own for guarding tho president or such public appearances and ho it convinced to this day that ItIho had been at his usual station at door ot tho presidents box Booth could never havo passed him There would seem to bo some ground for Cooks confidence for tho bodyguard did frustrate the plans of a mat who fought to gain audience with Uncoln AI during the tatters famous visit to City point and who when refused admis sion made threats against tho presi dent At the time tho man gave the name of Smith but Crook has always been confident that it was none other than tho notorious Surrat with whoso appearance under normal conditions he was familiar through having lived in the same county In Maryland before the war Tho homo of Col Crook In the city of Washington is a veritable museum of relics and mementoes of Lincoln and other presidents Probably the most prized of all the keepsakes Is a card In Lincolns handwriting which the president addressed to the provost marshal general when Crook and an other bodyguard Alexander Smith were drafted tor service in the army The president wrote that ho could not spare tho men and asked the above mentioned official to please fix the matter This precious bit of paper reposed for years in the war depart Mrs W H Crook ment flies but when Robert T Lln coin son of tho martyr president was secretary of war ho gave It to his fathers old guard Another of Col Crooks souvenirs IsI a mahogany cano made from the rail of tho little spiral stairway whereby Lincoln reached hti office on the second floor of tho White House a stairway long since torn away Col Crook has

since for use on tho presidential table Among the pieces are a cup and saucer which Lincoln used These like all of the pieces of this service aro ornamented by a broad maroon band and adorned with the American eagle and coat of arms In colors The LivingLincoln How well I remember when Lincoln lived at Petersburg III carrying the chain for a surveyors party and work for 75 cents a day Tho surveyors ling told mo that sho often saw him at night seated on the cellar door reading Dlackstono often until midnight by the light of tbo moon Lincoln always took note of the light and dark of the moons as Is shown by an Incident which occurred during his early practice of law A murder was committed In tho neigh borhood of the village and the son of tho surveyors wife was arrested on suspicion from the testimony of an eye witness In the meantime Lin coin had swung out his shingle as a lawyer at Springfield and on this occasion nobly did ho provo that the kindness of the surveyor was not forgotten by tho student who read Black steno by tho moonlight Ho went to tho jail and questioned tho young prisoner who asserted his Innocence and Lincoln took up tho caseAt the trial the witness swore that ho saw tho murder committed Might you not bo mistaken asked Lincoln A dim light Is deceptive and it was a dark night The witness hastened to reiterate that It was bright moonlight whereupon Lincoln promptly pulled from among his books an almanac and said calmly It Is not necessary for mo to make a plea for no jury can place any reliance on a witness who will swear that it was a moonlight night when tho almanac proves that it was the dark of the moon Daniel W Ayers in tho National Magazine Lincolns Repartee Uncle Joo Cannon tells this now nnd characteristic ono on Honest Abo Lincoln It was

yourselves treasures In Heaven God wants us to be rich but with riches toward God Heavenly treasures This refers indeed to the blessedness of Heaven all Its rewards its glories its Joys but chiefly to the kind of treasures which make Heaven what it Is Heaven begun hero on earth through tho heavenly life treas ures of character of enlarged being of good deeds of blessed work done of souls made better of faith love peace godliness brotherly kindness honesty meekness and all tho fruits of tho spirit These Heavenly riches we may acquire and enjoy here Second Tho Power of Heavenly Treasures

Tends to Decrease Wages and Must Be Eradicated Unions for Temperance All doubt as to the attitude of union labor toward the saloon declares the Western Christian Advocate of Cin cinnati is cleared away by the un equivocal statements of prominent la bor leaders during the recent annual convention of the American Federa tlon of Labor which was held in Toronto Canada The time has come proclaimed Samuel Campers the fed eratlons president when the saloon and the labor movement must be divorced Others who spoke no less emphatically were Thomas L Lewis president of the United Mine Workers John Mitchell ex president of that or ganization and John B Lennon treas urer of the federation Said Mr Mitchell a leader idolized by tbe unionsPoverty lies driven many a strong man to drink and drink has driven many a strong man to poverty I am not at all Impressed with the argu ment that If you close down the liquor calamityRnther justment of society Nothing has done more to bring misery upon Innocent women and children than the money spent In drink No man has a right to spend n cent upon himself until he line first provided for his family The average enoughtothey deserve He has no money to spend on drink without robbing his family I believe that as the labor movement grows so will the tem perance movement grow Mr Lennon discussing the effect of the liquor traffic on the standard of living declared that to the trade unionist there is no redeeming feature In the saloon We quote liquortralllcpeople Is there any influence gone helpedtolabor movement Is essentially a moral movement It stands for equal oppor tunity for men and women though It believes that It should be made more easily possible for women to become homemakers Who could deny that the liquor traffic was driving women to work in factories In workshops and at washtubs who ought not to be there Tho trade union movement was opposed to child labor yet who could deny that tho liquor traffic was driving Into industrial life boys and girls who should bo in tho scbol or on the playground The liquor traffic tended to decrease wages never to increase them The use of alcohol made workmen less skillful and drove men to lower scales of employment theliquorno social benefit or moral uplift Said President Lewis who believes that the trade unions are doing more for the cause of temperance than any other Institution in the world If you want to know where the miners of America stand upon the temperance question Ill tell you In our constitution we have a clause which forbids any member to sell in toxicants even at a picnic Thats what wo think of the liquor traffic Some people say that the saloon is a necessary evil I dont believe in that thatlegislationtraffic Nothing but the spread of ed

Investigate methods or dlscuss theor as We would take any way and be glad to take It Well we are in nIr ivorld of sin No matter which way you turn you will face the most hor rible sin And we must find a way out God tells us LlstonFor by 1 Grace are ye saved thru faith and that not yourselves It is the girt anytwayI want to use simple lauguage to night so that all can understand it for Gods truths are simple and meant for aU Now what Is grace It is love and sweetness and kind iiesa especially as It is shown in the scheme of redemption by Christ our Lord And it la only by this that wo may bo saved Christ died there on Calvary as the gift of Gods love Christ hanging there on the cross is a demonstration of Gods lovo to every person in this world to you and to you For God so loed the world that He gave p lila only begotten Son that whosoev er belleveth on Him shall not perish but have eternal life I can In my mind see the scene in Heaven when God called for volunteers who should rescue the world from its degradation and sin And I can almost seo the scene when the only begotten Son of the Father left His throne in glory and came down here to this sin cursed world and took on Himself tho form of nIght and Ho reached down to tho very lowest and raised them up reek Jngjahd dripping with sin that their names might be written in the Lambs book of Life But how do wo receive this gift of Gods Salvation Let us come bold ly to the throne of Grace And how are we to come to the Throno of Graco We come in prayer It is tho simplest thing in the world We can come to the Throne just as wo are sitting in our seats and there wo zCn find mercy and relief in time of a needAnd how are we to receive this gift By coming In a spirit of humility for God rosletoth the proud but Ho giveth grace to the humble Mr Bus well told an old veterans story ot the death on the battlefield of a man who had boon a skopUc andIwho after the fatal bullet found crIed unceasingly God be merciful to mo a

j coming when you too will cry out God be merciful to me a And It may then be too late slnnClI But He Is waiting now abiding out to you too immeasurable gift of His love And to whom is that love given To tho man in the gut ter and If ho will accept it God will raise him up out of his sin and shame and give him a name And it la given to the fallen woman and to the business man and to tho busI housewife and to the student facing I deep problems and to the young man ready to rtip out Into tho great world 4 yond and to that young woman soon to meet life He will load and guide her from ovrcy

Some one may say You have for gotten me Well perhaps 1 have for gotten you but God didnt forgot you Whomsoever will may come Ho suys and that means you and you and every one God is holding out Now if some one holds out a girt to you what do you doT Why you got up and step by stop you come for ward and reach out your hand and take It And then bemuse you have been brought up In a civilized country you soy thank you And It Is yours God is holding out to you the gift of Salvation and all you have to do Is to come humbly reach out your hand and take Jesus Christ as your Savior For by grace ye are

I the situation In Washington politics this weeu Something Is going toj happen soon but no one seems know hat It IIi be And meanwhile the dignified and Intellectual leaders i of tho Republican party are giving an imitation of a chicken with its head cut off and running around in circlesIn l tho advantage has been I a little with the Insurgents Also j there has teen more confirmation of your correspondents predication that the real enemies of Tafts politics would be the Cannon and Aldrich crowd But we are very sorry to record this as it also means that the chances of the much needed laws which tho president advocates are becoming very poor Some are going thru all right but probably not many The first movo of the week was tho announceuicnt by the Insurgents that they would stand solidly for most of the Taft measures They explained that they were not agreed among themselves on ship subsidy or the Federal iucorporation bill but on all other measures they were with the President to tho last drop This erII fectually disposed of the yarns Can non and his friends have boon telling the President about them and ho in return issued a statement saying bo was greatly pleased The result has been to put Taft in a position ot to 11Howoverback strong They were delighted at the conversion of the insurgents asI they called It Those who have readI these totters will understand that tho Insurgents have never been on tho other side Also C A announced with great Joy In their faces that this meant that tho entire program of the President would go thru withI flying colors That would mean another Republican Congress All was happyBut I somehow the Joy faded Pros Tart begin to be a little suspicious that since the stand patters had misinformed him about tho insurgents maybe some of tholr other statements would bear looking into Ho lookedI and it is safe to say he is scared stiff What ho saw was about what a lot of other people have known for tome time but which has been careII fully concealed from him It la said that he has announced that he will I take stump himself during the coming campaign and he will speak for regulars and Insurgents without dis Unction No attempt will bo raado to the insurgents and every ef j ort will be made to make the Con greaslonol Commltttee keep hands oft The party will present a united front Also the President is bringing all the force he can to make C Aido the things they promised but he was already doing that A few other of the older and wiser statesmen are also beginning to IiI active Sen Cullom for Instance has warned tho railroads that they must stop working against the railroad rate i Mil lie told a bunch of railroad men that they had got to learn to behave themselves and to stop opposing things that were for the good ot the country Also there have been ether straws j It Is worth going over a tow of the symptoms which have caused Mr Taft and his friends to get so exclt ed First there is the opposition to the conservation bills which Mr Taft had introduced The House con trolled by Cannon is doing nothing with them and It Is safe to say that they will not bo hoard from there till tho Senate bills como down The Sen ate in the meanwhile is amending them till they do not look like their former schcs at all and Taft will be unable to Indentlfy them when they get thru So there is no chance at all from pressing indications that Tafts programme will go thru in this line And remember that as j wo were explaining a week or two ago what the land sharks of the Northwest want is just delay if roWing Is done they will bo happy and nothing Is being done Tho ques ition Is gutting serious can a bunch lot rich criminals thru hired Con defy tho opinion of the Illation and the power of tho PresI j dent T And the answer seems to be i j gin to look like Yes j Then there Is such absolute opposl I tlon to Prea Tafts promise to have the Injunction laws reformed for th Iwncflt of labor that all hopes of getting that thru has boon abandon cd It will affect the campaign a few j hundred thousand votes Also comes strong opposition from tho same standpatters to the postal bank bill to which tho n i party Is pledged In tho most solem- manner Of course they are no against the principle but tho bill I now before them is not right they say There will be something wrong j with the next bill and tho next and so on They are not against it but nothing will satisfy them They arc sure to pot beaten in the onclI and may get it this winter But it makes harder sledding for toot very Ible Republican majority next year It ia a shame that a few grafters like that should bo allowed to ruin the party tho way they are doing Thoy are In politics for their henltbI and tho health of tholr they dont give a hang for the eoplo j but when thoy go back to be reel octal they jell a lot about what tine Republicans they are and there are enough people believe them to rev elect them Or there always have so far Perhaps the

members of tho presI eat minority party In congress seem to fool perfectly sure that they are to control tho next house of representa tree The Republicans naturally laugh at this claim and say that the Democrats aro simply In the same of hopeful need and that hope Is allsthat they will get out of It The DemI aerate retaliate with the statement that the majority of the people of theIcountry do not like the tariff bill and that they are blaming it for the hIghI prlca of living and that on theIstrength of these two Issues alone the Democracy Is to come into power in the lower houeo In the Sixtysecond congrellsiare talking about Gov Harmon and about Gov Marshall of Indiana nnd Mayor Gaynor of New York and last but perhaps or probe ably as you like not least William Jennings Bryan of

presidency and so Coy Harmons desire to bo leftIout of consideration until after ho has shown that ho can carry Ohio again Is not being heeded The Washington Democrats would like to know on whom the smile of William J Bryan will shine It is admitted that Mr Bryans Indorse ment Is absolutely necessary to give any Democrats campaign fur tho pres idency a fair start There are Democrats who believe that Champ Clark the Democratic leader in tho house may bo an out and out candidate for tho presidency and that this will bo more likely to happen If tho next house shall bo Democratic anti Mr Clark bo honored with Its speakershlp The Republicans realize that Gov strengthIncarryOhIoanswered Marshall can carry Indiana and Ohio too and another Democrat not to bo outdone said Champ Clark can carry Indiana Ohio and Missouri too Many Seek Speakershlp tWho will bo the next Speaker of the House of Representatives Matters have moved along so rapidly In ono direction that most of tho close friends of Speaker Cannon In the House ad mlt that the chances lire before very long ho will como out with a statement to tho effect that ho Is not to bo considered as a candidate for reelection to succeed himself In the office that generally Is accredited with having moro power attached to It than any other office except that of president of the United States The number of men who would like liaor criticism to announce their coat dacy for tho high honor Cannons Reelection Improbable The men who are close to Speaker Cannon personally and politically recentlytany real reason why Mr Cannon should not aspire to be his own sue cessor there Is as tar as they aro con cerned a real reason why they should not urge him to stand for reelection They soy their constituents have hasttheir representatives In congress should veto for some other man It Is an assured fact that enough of tho socalled regular Republicans voteragain for Mr Cannon to Insure that his reelection to the Speakershlp Is practically Impossible The regulate whose constituents havo said that they do not look with favor on another term In the Speakershlp for the Dan ville man added to the insurgents who have been against Mr Cannons rule of tho House for a long time make enough Republicans virtually to com pass the Speakers defeat If he should offer himself again for the first place n the louse It Is probable that If Speaker Can non could name his successor In office ho would select Representative Olm stead of Pennsylvania Mr Olmstead has presided over the affairs of the House when It was sitting as a com mittee of tho whole a great many times having been called to the chair by the Speaker to preside In his temporary absence Mr Olmsted politically Is n firm believer In what the country has como to know as the

the ranks of the regulars and In support of tire rule of Speaker Cannon Tho eastern repre sentatives In the main have been regular although Representative Augus tus Peabody Gardner of Massachu setts soninlaw ot Henry Cabot Lodge has been as much of an Insur gent as has Victor Murdock of Kan sas who ordinarily Is looked upon as tho chief of tho rebellious forces Most of the real Insurgents those who have been Insurgents through good weather and bad como from west of tho great river They aro too few In number to hope to elect one of their own kind as Speaker of tho next House nnd they see little chance ot enough Insurgent gain In tho cast to overcome the majority which tho regulars now hold and which they seem likely to hold In a depleted form during tho ncx con It Is the hope of the Insur dgents as they express It openly that ome middle westerner may bo chos en who Is neither a hidebound man betsomething In tho nature of a comps mise and who of necessity will boI moro kindly

They admit that they will have a hard fight on their hands and that they will bo obliged to defend the tariff bill against tho violent assaults of the Democratic enemy Tho Democrats- are so cheerful

manufacturers A lone bachelor sits and bemoans his tate of solitariness until a shifting scene reveals to him what bliss life would bo with her of his dreams Tho more elaborate of these manufactured val entines were wonderful examples of human Ingenuity and handicraft and some were very expensive Tho manufacturer of valentines CO years ago gave remunerative employment to an army of women to whom

me five pounds but that I must havo laid out If we had not been valentines Two days later Pepys says I find that Mrs Plerces little girl is my valentine she having drawn me which I am sorry for it easing mo of some thing more that I must have given to others But I do first observe the fashion of drawing mottoes as well as names so that Pierce who drew my wife did also draw a motto and his girl drew another for me What mine was I forget but my wifes was Most courteous and most fair which as it may be used as an engagement upon each name might be very pret ty Pepys has a great deal to tell about valentines and what be says shows that the day was observed In the high est fashionable circles and that expen sire presents were given Ho describes how the duke of York being the valentine of Miss Stuart a fa mous beauty gave her a jewel valued at c800 and how Lord Mandevllle an other valentine of this lucky woman presented her with a ring worth 4300- A man had to have money to keep up with St Valentines procession in the age of King Charles Ih1 But fully as Interesting and much more strange were the St Valentines customs among the common people Many of tho observances were singu

and rolled them up in clay and put them into water and the first that same to the surface was to be our valentine There have been endless devices for valentines but perhaps the queerestton record Is that described in lowing little story One St Valettines morning an English gentleman remarked to his pretty daughter that on that day 200000 moro letters than the average passed through the London twopenny post Why papa replied the girl thats just the number of young folks that must be In love with each other thats the way to At that moment reckonIof tho family came subject of their talk drew a

sceno a vacant air She cametwas all replete to Well now I call that capital cried the lively lass After such a valentine you must take the hint my dear sir Its settled you must get marriedWill you marry met he asked- I marry you No You are too old But there are many women ot your age Why dont you ask one of them t He had to be contented with this sorry consolation though be deserved a bettor fate for tho Ingenuity of his valentineSt day has always been a favorite with tho poets It is men tinned by Chaucer Shakespeare Goo the Donne Gay Lydgate and others and many firstclass versifiers have
