He had compassion on those who were unfortunate, and believed in the improvability of all men. It is profitable to study the life of Lincoln because his qualities are such that we can all imitate them. Woman Suffrage The Legislature has given a hearing to those who are in favor of giving to wo.ir.en, the same as men, the right and duty of voting, holding office, and managing the government. It is a queer mixture of people who support woman suffrage. Every free lover and smoking woman is a suffragist. And among the suffragists are some of the best people in the world. In this hearing before the Legislature the advocates of woman suffrage plainly said that the majority of women do not desire to vote. The dear, sweet home women, who give the world its comfort and its inspirations, feel that it is best for them to train up their sons and influence their husbands for the ruder work of life. They do not wish in addition to the care of the home to assume also the work of government in its details. The suffrage movement, therefore, is a movement to make these women discontented. The suffragists purpose to agitate. They wish to stir up women to be dissatisfied with home and children and love, and to make them desire something else. They propose to give up influencing men, and vote them down! There are, sad to say, a good many men and women who are not in families. And it is chiefly these women and married women who are unhappy who agitate for suffrage. All true men feel especially tender and solicitous for such unhappy women. Many improvements in the laws have been made for their benefit and others will come as fast as they can be wisely framed. But to break up the home and dissolve society into its elements each man and woman an independent fighter would be a set back to Christian civilization. Regional Bank for Louisville?

To Investigate Gas Company The citizens of Lexington have been much wrought up over the extreme increase in their January gas hills. The hills havo jumped 1,200 per cent over December bills in many cases, and tho people feel that there must be some crooked work.

Immodest News Itemsl WORLD'S JUDGMENT AT FAULT Writer Claim That Proper Appreciation of Lincoln Has Never Been Expretted. iRtTLT Lincoln, one of the greatest of observers, was himself least truly obserred. God bad built htm in the back-yarof the nation, and wrapped in homely guise, i d I there, had preserred and matured his pure humanity. He was heard, but seems rarely, if ever, to have been truly seen. The reports we have of him do not satisfy, do not Justify themselres, are inconsistent. The eastern, old- world eye could not read beyond the queer hat, bad tailoring and boots you could not now giro away and he was so long he fairly had to stoop to look the little world in the face. Never have bad tailoring and homely, deferential manner so completely hidden seer, Jester, master of men, as did these simple accouterments this first great gift of the west. The world ever reads simple, deferential manner true evidence of innate refinement as weakness, timidity and Indecision, Just as it reads strength in noise and power in abuse. It Is said of, sound that volume will start a tear more quickly than quality or tone. But It Is surprising that professional observers, artists and writers alike, have drawn and redrawn an untrue picture of this man.

From the Bible, Pilgrim's Progress, and Aesop the boy Lincoln learned the power and beauty of plain English words, and saw that the grandest thoughts and most poetic Imaginings needed only the strong little words of every day. When, therefore, in later life he wished to be sure he understood any matter, It became his custom to translate It Into words such as a child can understand.

Who will tell us what books were read by other great men and women of the past when they were "young readers?" IHEN Abraham Lincoln was a small boy, says St. Nich olas, he had very few books. There was no need for him to consult a list of the hundred best books. His earliest possessions consisted of less than half a dozen volumes a pioneer's library. First, of course, wbb the bible, a whole library In Itself, if properly understood, and containing every sort of literature stories, poems, dramas, addresses, orations, histories, some simple enough for the youngest child, others taxing the wisdom of the learned.

These estimates are based on the values usually assigned nitrogen, phosphoric acid and potash in commercial fertilizer.

Another fundamental error is ignoring that tho most valuable part of the barnyard manure Is tho urine, since it carries more than half of the nitrogen and potash. Yet it is the portion most commonly lost to tho soil. Furthermore, the plant food is in the most available form. Causes ot Manure Loss. Tbero are two chief causes of the deterioration of manure: First, fermentation, whereby nitrogen, cither as ammonia or in tho gaseous slate, Is sol free, and second, weathering or leaching which involves a loss of the soluble fertilizing constituents. In the llrsl caso the loss from demay bo structive fermentation largely prevented by tho uso of proper absorbents and by keeping the manure moist and compact.

Ijirge quantities of fruit are disposed of through commission merchants.

Jesus accepted thrco such Invitations from the Pharisees and waa accused of being a glutton and a wine bibber, Matt. Luke 7:36, In this Instance wo are told plainly (v. 64) why he had been asked to this feast. At a later time, o. g., during the Passion week, Jesus deliv39, 44. ered a special dlscourso against tho Pharisees (Matt 23) In which ho repeated many of tho things wo study today. Must Be Clean. False vs. True cleansing (vv. The orthodox Jew Is very punctilious to avoid ceremonial uncleanll-nesIu Christ's tlmo this ceremonialism was at Its highest development. To bo defiled was far worse than to bo morally unclean. This Pharlseo "marveled" that Jesus was not likewise concerned with his outward acts (v. 39, se also Matt 23:25, 26). To have a clean cup and platter was more Important than to have a clean heart. In a fragment ot Gospel found at Oxyrhyncus, Jesus Is reputed to have said to a Pharisee: "Thou hast washed In waters wherein dogs and swine have been cast, and wiped the outside skin which also harlots anoint and beautify, but within they are full of scorpions and all wickedness. Hut I have been dipped in tho waters of eternal lite which come from the throne of God." Pious platters, presented In pride, must be InI. 37-4s. wardly purified. Jesus pronounces three "woes," griefs that like an avenging nemesis bang over men ot such a character. (1) A "woe" against those who make a show of tithing the common garden mint and herbs and at the same time avoid the welghtlet matters ot Just relations to their fellow men And love to God (v. 42). We are not to neglect our cburchly duties at all, but cannot be substituted for these righteousness (see Mlcha 6:8). (2) A "woe" against those who lovo the (v. 43, cf. Matt. places of 23:6, 7). This spirit has not departed from the church after a lapse ot cen- turies. It Is unchristian, unchrlstllke. The great one must bo tho servant of all (Matt. 23:11, 20:28. John 13J14; 15. (3) (v. 43), The third Phil. 2:5-8)- . "woe" Is directed against hypocrisy. To touch n grave was to become unclean, and hence they were whitewashed to give men warning. Many Christians are without beautiful to behold, yet within full ot dead men's bones and nil manner of uncleanllncss. The Three Woes. The lawyers were the theologians, the expounders ot the Mosaic law. Evidently the words of Jesus produced great conviction. The word "reproach-est- " (v. 45) means "to entreat spitefully," and the probabilities are that be spoke to Jesus as If to rebuko him. Jeius at once pronounces three woes upon him and his class. (1) A "woe" because they laid burdens upon others which they themselves would not oven touch with one of their fingers (Matt. 23:4). That is, they added to tbo law minuto and troublesome details, which they declared to be more Important than the law Itself. (2) (v. 47) A "woe" Is pronounced upon them for honoring the dead prophets and at the same time rejecting and persecuting those that wero living. To honor dead teachers, to praise tho piophets of the past, those whom we cannot endure whllo living, la a form of hypocrisy which costs but lltUe. It Implies that had they lived In tho days of their fathers their conduct would have been indifferent, yet they are with the living prophets, following tho example of their fathers. God foresaw this (v. 49) and the faithful minister ot bis word must expect a like treatment (Mk. 10:29, 30). (3) (v. 12) Tho third "woe" was pronounced against these religious teachers because, possessing tbo key to knowledge, they neither entered themselves nor would they allow others to enter; "ye enter not in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that aro entering in to enter." (Matt. 23:13, Am. Rv.). These lawyers, theologians, were professedly Interpreters of the law, that law which was the foundation and bulwark ot the Jewish nation. In fact, however, they had so obscured and "explained" that law as to leave men in darkness. Supposed to lead men Into truth, they wero shutting them out ot the truth. What a terrlblo Indictment ot many ot this present age. We quoto from the letter of a Wisconsin business man: "Tho average man la Interested In tbu teachings of the Itlblo. If the Dlblo cannot stand upon Its own feet. It Is foolish to bolster It up by any personal Ideas. We make too many apologies for Scriptures and do not stand squarely by what It teaches." Not a few wbo oc cupy the position of teachers obscure the truth of God and they shut men out ot a real knowledge of blm.

Oh, for such love, let "rocks nnd hills their lasting silenco break." Tho contrast between theso two men is remarkable. Lei us sco for a moment bow they compared with each other.

No mailer how far you may throw a Ihotight, as soon as it has reached its limit and its forco has expended itself, it is reflexive and comes back lo tho ono who thinks It. So with King Agrippa. As bo has considered the Apostlo Paul, now he comes back to himself. Who am I? I am the great King Agrippa, but what will I be in a few years? He knows very well tbe fickleness of the Roman government and ho may even havo an intimation thai in a few ycar3 I will (such as ho really did) becomo a cast-o- ff from the Roman government, a cast-o- ff politician, and then still later going down ho finds himself trembling on the threshold of eternity, nothing but a miserable sinner, ready to die and lo bo burAs in his mind the Apostlo ied. Paul has gone up, he in his own mind has gone down. The Tragedy of "The Almost" King Agrippa was almost persuaded but not entirely. To be almost persuaded is to be lost. It is a terrible condition. It is better never to have known tho nearness of our relation to God than after wo know it to be lost. Some of you have read of that remarkable poem, "Lost in Sight of Home." A young man from New England goes to Australia to seek his fortune and there in the wilds of Australia, beset with hunger and cold and dangor from the natives and every form of al last ho obtains his fortune and starts for home. He has heard in his native New England of an estate thai is for sale. He has the money to buy it. He is going to get it and spend the last of his days in his native place. As he approach-"- ?' es his home ho sees dimly tho green " r of his New England home. In a few days he will be there. Out that night the vessel goes down with all on board and he is lost in sight of home. How much easier it would have been to have died in Australia by starvation or by violenco than after escaping all this and so near thu end of his ambition to bo lost. I say here (o you this morning, and say it to you frankly, that I would prefer to go to tho judgment as a heathen man rather than to go to the judgment out of this Christian congregation, unsaved and unrepentant. If you, who have been brought up in Christian families with Christian parents, who have been brought up in Sabbath schools, who have heard the gospel from your youth, and have all the while lived in the expectation that you will bo a Christian and go to Heaven, for you now to bo lost is almost unthinkable. A terriblo calamity to como on a man, going to tbo judgment unsaved after all tho opportunities of a life in this Christian land.

Berea College with its affiliated schools, is not a money-makin- g institution. It requires certain fees, but it expends many thousands of dollars each year for the benefit of its students, giving highest advantages at lowest cost, and arranging as far as possible for students to earn and save in every way. OUR SCHOOL IS LIKE A FAMILY, with careful regulations to protect the character and reputation of the young people. Our students coma from the best families and are earnest to do well and improve. For any who may be sick the College provides doctor and nurse without extra charge. All except those with parents in Berea live in College buildings, and many assist in work of boarding hall, farm and shops, receiving valuable training and getting pay according to the value of their labor. Except im winter it it expected that all will have a chance to earn a part of theW expense. Write to the Secretary before coming to eecure employment. PERSONAL EXPENSES for clothing, laundry, postage, books, etc, vary with different people. Berea favors plain clothing. Our climate is the best, but as students must attend classes regardless of the weather, warm wraps and underclothing, umbrellas and overshoes are necessary. THE STORE furnishes books, toilet articles, work uniforms, umbrellas and other necessary articles at cost LIVING EXPENSES are really below cost The College asks no rest for the fine buildings in which students live, charging only enough rooaj rent to pay for cleaning, repairs, fuel, lights, and washing of bedding and towels. For table board, without coffee or extras, (1.35 a week, in the fall, and $1.50 in winter. For furnished room, with fuel, lights, washing of bedding, 40 to CO cents for each person. SCHOOL FEES are two. First a "DOLLAR DEPOSIT," aa guarantee for return of room key, library books, etc This is paid but once, and is returned when the student departs. Second an "INCIDENTAL FEE" to help on expenses for care of school buildings, hospital, library, etc (Students pay nothing for tuition or services of teachers all our instruction is a free gift). The Incidental Fee for most students is (5.00 a term; in Academy and Normal 16.00 and $7.00 in Collegiate course.
