went up there and met his coon on the street and proceeded to ado minister a castigation or in other words he thrashed the negro Mr Morro was arrested and fined the same as if he had whipped a corpora tionpet On inquiring the reason of the cost of coon clubbing was told that In this place the negro is consider edas good as a white man Mr Morro paid his fine remarking Gentlemen you set a peculiar estimate n yourselves ttLake County Advo cateThe truth of the above article is that oat Mr Morro of the leyee camp came to Hickman and beat a negro boy unmercifully and was anxious to force him and his sweetheart to his camp i Complaint was made to the city and county officers whereupon a warrant was sworn out by the negro for Morro He was arrested and tried just the same Many other violator of the laws of Hickman except that when a man fails topay a tine he is remanded to jail un til the same is satisfied but through courtesy to Morro not being able to pay hisfine he was released on the promise to pay later which ho did only a few days ago As to the supposed remark by any officer or citizen of Hickman in this place ft negro is considered as t I ply Gwitlemea you set a peculiar es t

enterprise a Board of Women Managers was appointed consisting of 25 representative women of Buffalo In addition to this the governors of the states and territories were asked to nominate two women each to act as honorary members of the Womens Board these nominations to be ratified by the Board of Directors of the Expo sition The same request was made of the other PanAmerican countries d CYCLING ROUTES WIn All Lead to BaCale let 5a ere For the accommodation pf the large number of cyclists who contemplate touring awheel to Buffalp and the Pan American Exposition and Niagara Falls next summer a series pf trunk line cycling routes isbelng compiled They will probably be as follows 1 New York and Albany to Buffalo via the Hudson Elver the valley of the Mohawk and the cycle paths of Central and Western NewYork 2 New York to Buffalo via the Del aware Water Gap Scranton Elmira Corning and the cycle paths of the Southern tier of counties So Boston and New England points to Buffalo connecting with Boote No 1 at Albany 4 Boston and New England point to Buffalo via Providence New London steamboat to Greenport Long Island cycle paths of Suffolk County to Brook lys connecting with Route Ne 1 or 2 at New York 5 Washington Baltimore and PIJ11I delphla to Buffalo connecting with ItoteNo 2 at the Delaware Water Gap or Scranton 6 8t Louis and Chicago to Buffalo via Toledo Cleveland and Erie The treead from Erie to Buffalo along the south shore of Lake Erie through the Grape belt has been called the flneff 100 mile straightaway in America TOM NEAL FOB GOVERNOR We see that many of our Tanacse 3 exchanges are proposing the name of our old friend Col Tom Neal of the Dyersburg State Gazette for Governor He is one of the most geniai gentlemen in the state and at the same time one of the ablest editors and truest Demo crats The old Volunteer State has not any better Gubernatorial timber within its borders DEATHS Mr Jo Welch a well known and ular young man born and lastii i Hickman died Friday morning of consumption and was buried in the city cemetery Friday evening For a number of years he had lived at Mountd City Cairo Fulton and other points Ho was a genial warm hearted young man and had many friends Peace this o memory 1 Mr Clint Wallace an old residen of Paducah Ky but for some time re cently engaged at work in Hickman died suddenly at the home of hIS nephew Mr Tom Wallace near Hick man Saturday morning last of some thing like heart disease He had beet up attending to business the evening before in fact took supper at the table with his nephews family but was soo afterwards seized with violent pains iit tho regions of tho heart Dr Fari was sent for gave him some inedicin- which se seemed to case him and ho wen oil to sleep In the night about 2 oclock he was again suffering and soonl died Ho was well known in Paducah having served many years on the police force of that city and in fact was welll known throughout Western Kentucky His remains were carried to Paducal Sunday morning for interment OUR RURAL FREE DELIVERY GOOD ROADS ARE NECESSARY It is well for tho farmers and people along the free rural delivery routes to be inaugurated from Hickman to understand that it is a fixed unvarying rule of the Post Office Department that the public roads are to be kept in good condition If it is fonnd that a road remains in bad condition the rural carrier will be called off the route and the service disoontinued The policy of the department is to see that the roads are good before a route is estab lished and after they are established an Inspector goes over these routes pe riodically to see that they are kept in good condition Tho mail carrier is not to be forced to make his way thro1 mud hub deep So a bad portion of road may destroy an entire route and prevent several hundred people from having their mail brought to their doors daily free- RAILROAD 1i INTOLAKE COUNTY The COURIER is sometimes asked as to the practicability of the building of a rail road into Lake County from any of the points named Union City Obion Ful ton Dyersburg or Hickman and our reply has been that any and all things are practical when the proper energy and enterprise are put forth Without a levee in front of it however any such proposition for a railroad from any point into Lake County is impracticable by reason of the immense cost The Courier has had a larger experience in building railroads on paper by reason of longer service than any or its con temporaries but newspaper surveys and estimates are sometimes most always vastly different to the actual instrn mental surveys on terra firma If such- a road had not been confronted by such topographical and geographical obstacles it would have been built many years ago With a substantial levee from Hickman to the Tennessee highlands a railroad from any of these points would be practical and even then not so unless the enterprise was backed up by the Illinois Central or some great financial corporation The idea of building an independent short line in this day of great railroad pools belongs to the east Thn near est approach to it might be a road from Fulton or Obion to Hickmau here to find a transMississippi connection and also into Lake county by way of the Levee This much we say to inquiring friends out of a long and somewhat disastrous experience of building rail roads on paper

by Louis Klop eh N YI Tilt dirm of an exalted religion is bv Dr Talmage in this discourse 1- 1luatrated and commended text Job 2SJ7 The crystal cannot equal it Many of the precious stones of theI recognitionJJutI valuable crystal Job in my text compares saving wisdom with a speci men of topaz on infidel chemist or mineralogist would pronounce the latter worth more than the former but Job makes an intelligent comparison looks at religion and then looks at the crystal and pronounces the former j as of far superor value to the latter exclaiming in the words of my text j The crystal cannot

the other he declared that the former is of far more value and beauty than the latter recommending it to all the people and to all ages declaring The crystal cannot equal it In the first place I remark that religion is superior to the crystal in ex actness That shapeless mass of crys tal against which you accidentally dashed your foot is laid out with more exactness than any earthly cityI crystallizationand preciionthrough it and it is a square or it iiIa rectangle or its a rhomboid or in j cprne way it has n mathematical figure XoV religion beats that in the simple fact that spiritual

those orders in n box that floated ashore while the ship and the crew that carried the box were never heard of I believe in a particular provi dence I believe Gods geometry may be seen in all our life more beautifully q than in crystallographyI Job was r hThe crystal cannot equal it I i Again I remark that religion is stipe z rior to the crystal in transparency Vc know not when or by whom glass j i yfas first discovered Beads of it have fbeenfound in the tomb of Alexander Severus Yases of it are brought up it ffrom the ruins of Ilerculaneunu There were female adornments made out of ii- t it 5000 years agothose adornments 1 found now attached to the mummies 1 mor Egypt A great many com men tators believe that my text means 11glass What would we do without the crystal The crystal in the window to J daytheiI its delicate machinery yet allowing us to see the hour the crystal of the tel escope bywhich the astronomer J brings distant worlds so near he can in thetI Icrstnlsinthe Rouen and Salisbur But there is nothing so transparent in a crystal as 1 in our holy religion It is a trans I i parent region You put it to your eye and you seemanhis sin his soul j his destiny You look at God and you see something of the grandeur of His i j character It is a transparent reli f gion Infidels tell us it is opaque Do i tellusUisomaqrteii ItJs because they are blind The Bafti ai plan receiveth not the things of God because they are spiritually dis concerned There is no trouble with the crystal The trouble is with the eyes which try to look through it j We pray for vision Lord that our eyes might be opened When the eye I salve cures our blindness then we find that religion is transparent The providence that seemed dark youeais find God is not tr ingto put you nMt down Now you understand why you 1 Ilostthat child andwhy you lost your property It was to prepare you for eternal feasures And why sickness came it being the precursor of im i pWtalabpd flow lOU z understand why they lied about you and tried to drive you hither and thither It was to put you in the glorious company of such men as Ignatius who when he went out to be destroyed by the lions said I am the wheat land the teeth of the wild beasts must first grind me before I can become pure bread for Jesus Christ Or the company of such men as that ancient Christian martyr who when standing in the midst of the amphitheater waiting for the lions to come out of their cave and destroy him and the people in the galleries jeering and shouting The lions replied Let them come otI and then stooping down toward the cave where the wild beasts were roar ing to get out again cried Let them come on Ah yes it is perse cution to put you in glorious company and while there are many things that you will have to postpone to the future world for explanation I tell you that it is the whole tendency of your religion to unravel and explain and interpret and illumine and irradiate Job was right It is a glorious transparency The crystal cannot equal it i remark again that religion sur passes the crystal in its beauty The lump of crystal is put under the mag nifying glass of the crystallograph er and he sees in it indescribable ex quisiteness snowdrift and splinters of hoar frost and corals and wreaths and stars and crowns and constella lions of conspicuous beauty The fact is that crystal is so beautiful that I cun think of but one thing in all the universe that is as beautiful and that is the religion of the Bible Xo wonder this Bible represents that re ligion as the lny break as the apple blossoms as the glitter of a kings banquet It is the joy of thin whole earthPeople talk too much about their cross and not enough about their crowns Do you know that the Bible mentions a cross but 27 times while it mentions a crown SO times Ask that old man what he thinks of re ligion He has been n close observer He has been cultivating an esthetic taste He has seen the sunrises of half a century He has been an early riser He has been an admirer of cameos and corals and nil kinds of beautiful things Ask hint what lIe thinks of religion and he will tell you It is the most beautiful thing I ever saw The crystal cannot equal it- Beautiful in its symmetry When it presents Gods character it does not present Him asliavinglovc like a great protuberance on one We of His na ture but makes that love in harmony with Ills justice a love that will ac cept all those who come to Him and a justice that will by no means clear the guilty Beautiful religion in the sentiment it implants Beautiful religion in the hops it kindlesl 1eaiitfiil religion in the fact hat it proposes toI garland and enthrone and emparadise an Immortal spirit Solomon says it isa lily Paul says it is a crown The Apocalypse says it is a fountain kissed by the sun Ezekiel says it is a foliaged cedar Christ says it is a bridegroom come to fetch home a bride While Job in the text takes up a whole vase of precious stones the topaz and the sapphire and the chrysoprustis he holds out of this beautiful vase just one crystal and holds it up until it gleams in the warm light of the eastern sky and he exclaims The crystal cannot equal it- Ohit is not a stale religion it is not stupid religion it is not a toothless hag as some seem to have represented it it is not a MpgMerrilles with shriveled arm come to scare the world it is the fairest daughter of God heiress of all His wealth her cheek the morn ing sky her voice the music of the south wind her step the dance of the sea Come and woo her The Spirit and the Bride say come and whosoever will let him come Do you agree with Solomon and say it is a lily Then pluck It and wear it over your heart Do you agree with Paul and say it is a crown Then let this hour be your coronation Do you agree with the springingfountain thirst of your soul Do you believe with Ezekiel and say it is a foliaged cedar Then come under its shadow Do jou believe with Christ and say it it a bridegroom come to fetch home a bride Then strike hands with your Lord and King while I pronounce you everlastingly one Or if you think with Job that it is a jewel then put it on your hand like a ring on your neck like a bead on your forehead like a star while looking into the mirror of Gods word you acknowledge The crystal cannot equal it Again religion is superior to the crystal in its transformations The diamond is only a crystallization Car bonate of lime rises till it becomes cal cite or aragonite TIed oxide of copper crystallizes into cubes and octahed rons Those crystals which adorn our persons and our homes and our museums have only been resurrected from forms that were far from lustrous Scientists for ages have been examin ing these wonderful transformations But I tell you in the Gospel of the Son I of God there Is a more wonderful transformation Over souls by reason or sin black as coal and hardas iron God by His comforting grace stoops and says They shall be mine in the day jewelsWhat wear jewelry If He wanted it He could make the stars of the heaven His belt and have the evening cloud for the sandals of Ills feet but He does not want that adornment He will not have that jewelry When God wants jewelry He comes down and digs it out of the depths and darkness of sin These souls are all crt tallizations of mercy He puts them on and He wears them in thejpres ence of the whole universe ne them on the hand that was warsII fiVCE llitf heajl JhaJ wjig piercedi RA the temples that were stung Tfccj I shall be mine saith the 10inthe day when I make up my jewels Wonderful transformation Where sin abounded grace shall mu li more abound The carbon becomes the sol- Itaire The crystal cannot equal W Now 1 have no liking for those peo pIe who are always enlarging 4I Christian meetings about their earls dissipation Do not go into the par ticulars my urother Simply say you were sick but make no display of your ulcers The chief stock ib trade of some ministers and Chris tout workers seems to be their earls crimes and dissipations The num ber of pockets you picked and the number of chickens you stole ninks very poor prayer meeting rhetoric Besides that It discourages other Christian people who never got drunfc or stole anything But it iis pleasant to know that those who were farthest down have been brought high I est up Out of infernal serfdom into eternal liberty Out of darkness iritc light From coal to the solitaire The crystal cannot equal it But my friends the chief trans forming power of the Gospel will not be seen in this world and not until Heaven breaks upon the soul When that light falls upon the soul then you will see the crystals What a magnificent setting for these jewels of eternity I sometimes hear people representing Heaven in a way that is far from attractive to me tseems almost a vulgar Heaven as they represent it with great blotches of color mind bands of music making a deafening racket John represent leaven as exquisitely beautiful Three crystals In one place he says Her light was like a precious stone clear us crystal In another place he says I saw a pure river from under the throne clear as crystal In another place he says Hcfore the throne there was a sea of glass clear as crystal Three crystals John says crystal atmosphere That means health Balm of eternal June What weather after the worlds east wine so rack ofstormclouds One breath of that air will cure the worst tubercle Crystal light on nIl the leaves Crystal light shimmering on the topaz of the temples Crystal light tossing ijn the plumes of the equestrians of Heaven on white horses But the crystal cannot equal it John says crystal river That means joy Deep and ever rolling sot one drop of the Potomac or the Hudson or the Rhine to soil it Not one tear of human sorrow to embitter it Crystal the rnin out of which it was made Crystal the bed over which it shall roll and rips jilt Crystal its Infinite surface But the crystal cannot equal it John says crystal sea That means multi tudinouslyinst Vast in rapture 1h pt url vast as the sta deep na the sea strong as the sea thr hanging as the sea Billows of lightsIttllows of beauty blue with skies that tare never clouded and green with depths that were never fathomed Arctics and anta relics and Mediterraneans and Atlantics and Pacifies in crystalline magnificence Three crystals Crystal light falling on a crystal rives Crystal river rolling into a crystal sea nut the crystal cannot equal it Oh says some one putting his hand over his eyes can it be that 1 who have been in so much sin and trouble will ever come to those crystals Yes it may blU will be leaven we must have hat tt v J have or have not and we come h retf get it How much must 1 pay for its you say You will pay for it just a+ much as the coal pays to become tho diamond In other words nothing The same Almighty power that makea the crystal in the mountain will change your heart which is harder than stone for time promise is I will take away your stonj heart and 1 xvill give you a heart of flesh Oh says some one it is just the doctrine I want God is to do every thing and 1 am to do nothing My brother it is not the doctrine you want The coal makes no resistance It hears the resurrection voice in the mountain and it comes to crystalliza lion but your heart resists The trouble with you my brother is the coal wants to stay coal- I do not ask you to throw open the door and let Christ in 1 only ask that you stop bolting and barring it My friends we will have to get rid of our sins 1 wilt hare to get rid of 1113 sins and you will have to get rid of your sins What will we do with our sins among the three crystals The crys talatmosphere would display our pollution The crystal river would he befouled with our touch Transforma tion must take place now or no trans formation at all Give sin full chance in your heart and the transformation will be downward instead of upward Instead of crystal it will be a cinder In the days of Carthage a Christian girl was condemned to die for her faith and a boat was bedaubed with tar and pitch and filled with combustibles and set on fire and the Christian girl

Coiniim inter A C IlotlKHoii Gnvv Testimony In the Court of Inquiry Washington Oct 2The Schlcy court of inquiry made good headway again Tuesday concluding with Adm Evans and hearing three new witnesses although the testimonyof one of them was not concluded when the court adjourned for the day Adm Evans testimony was along the same general lines as was his statement of Monday but some points were pre sented in greater detail in response to questions by MrJ Ilnyner In cross examining Adm Roans Mr Knyner said 1 want to call your attention to the report of Cupt McCalla of the Marblehead on page 426 of the appendix which says Commodore Sehley explained to the commanding officers that in case Spanish ships came out he wished to concentrate the bat teries of all our ships on a portion of those of the enemy This was not explained as a tactical concentration of our whole force on a part of the enemy hat as a division of our whole fire on several of the enemys ships During the time the commanding otll cers were on board the flagship Capt Evans asked Commodore Schlcy if it were his intention to sTcnin at the enemys ships in ease they should start to come out Commodore Schley answered Certainly and added words indicative of his intention to attack them as they carte out of the nar row detile 1 recollect it perfectly Is that a correct statement That is correct So there was a plan of battle ar ranged by Commodore Schley was th ie not- There is nothing there to indicate it from what you have reudIWas not that the same order that was afterward given by the cowman

Yiscaya but in a course parallel to the shore When I first saw the Brooklyn the Texas was off the port quarter of the Colon the Oregon off the port quarter of the Texas and the Brook lyn to the south off the Texas port bow said the witness in answer to a question by llayner The Brooklyn was ahead The new witnesses were Capt SIs bee who conmandcd the scout St Paul during the Santiago campaign Mr Thomas M Dknaide a news paper correspondent who was on the Texas during the bnttle of July 3 and Chief Yeoman Gustave E Becker who was a clerk to Adm Sampson during the war Capt Sigsbces testimony covered his communications to Commodore Sclucy upon the litters arrival o Santiago Slay 20 1SOS and at sub- Sequent dates and dealt with the state of time weather at that period He was asked a great number of questions by the court Washington Oct 3An interesting turn was given to the Schlcy court of inquiry Wednesday by the intro duction of the first witness in Adm Schleys behalf This was Lieut Jas J Doyle who was watch ofllecr on board the flagship Brooklyn during the war with Spain The fact that Lieut Doyle was put on the stand does not mean that the navy depart went has concluded the presentation of its side of the case Mr Doyle was called by time department but as it pus been the purpose of Adm Schlcy to summon him advantage was taken of iris presence on the stand to question him as an original wit ness for the applicant He was under examination by Sir liayner in the interest of the admiral when the court adjourned for the day Before undergoing examination at Mr Itayners hands Lieut Doyle at Capt Lemlys request explained his part iu the battle of July 3 and his original entry in the ships log con cerning the famous loop and his al teration of that entry because he subsequently discovered that his first entry hall been erroneous Mr Kayner asked him if it were not true that The change in the log was not due to an error on the part of the witness and to no desire upon the part of anybody to falsity the fact Absolutely was the response And the error continued Mr Ray ner occurred rs I understood you to sag in this way That during the action you could not see on account of the smoke and thought the ship did turn with starboard helm and you entered it so in the log oYes was the reply We lost track of the enemy in the first in stance withthe port battery by our own bow shutting the enemy out and showing that ct that time we must have had our helm a little star board or that the enemy was going with starboard helm And then when you learned you had been mistaken you made the change f changed the entryand I think if you had the rough copy here you would find it changed in my own jJ handwritingAdm Capt Sigsbce and Cor respondent Dienside were allrei

grounded belief on the part of the United States government that there is an organized association composed of Chinese Mexicans and Americans in Mexico which has as its main object the smuggling of Chinese subjects into the United States says the Chicago Inter Ocean For a long time it has been apparent to the American authorities that large numbers of Celestials have been sys tematically taken across the hordes and worked through the interior It was at first thought that the headquarters j of these agents were at ElI Paso Eagle Pass and in Sonora Several Ijn= migration agents hare brought overlarge i number of Chinese laborers toti Sonora and Sinaloa but special emisjI sCrictwhojI 5I of n few months till they are lost t I view Inquiries from the immigration3 agents do not elicit

sfThei i BOW beiiC ved that the real center of this business is in the Cityof Mexico tj It is charged that Chinese immigration I agents in Mexico City contract ini Chinese ports for coolies to be delivered J1 in Mexico fur alleged work in the mines on railways or plantations atjji ridiculously low figures and for a2 stated term of years Some of thesej men are for the time being hired outIt but ninny of them remain in Mexico 1 where employment Iis provided thenI and where they arc taught to speak English with the sole idea of getting them into the United States where J1 knowledge of the language large j I y removes suspicion from their move meats The leading Chinese in Mexico deny these staements but they do not deny that every Chinaman in the city 5 learning pigeon English as fast as hi3 brain will absorb the language One man however who is ia a posit ioruja know says the denials are worthle He states that these men after having mastered English nrt contracted tQ work nrar the border Front this point of vantage they are smuggled acrossa the line by Mexican guides for ten dofcj j 1lars a Lead It is very seldom that any attempt is made to cross the line ag any of the railway points or in fact I near any town Put it is quite an easvj matter for a guide to take say the CeestUls in a bunch on a dart nigh and cross the Rio 8rnnde at almost any Jpoint without attracting the attentionjj of the outriders Time Arizona frontier is an attractive 1 fled of operations for the reason tha 1 there are great stretches of desert where it is impossible for the customs officers to keep an eye all the time It i is only necessary to employ guides who are familiar with the water holes and i the heathen are soon worked into the i interior where their presence arouses no curiosity The guides on the ilex i ican side of time line invariably refuse to cross the border not being willing to take chances of punishment for rio lation of Uncle Sams laws against the entrance of Chinese The modus op crandi is to convey the rang to a given point on the line where they are turned over to American guides and the Mexican returns for a new batch It has not been so very long since ten Celestials were taken by American cus toms officials through a miscarriage oi plans The American guide failed tc show up at the appointed time and the Mexican who had the Chinese i hand instructed them to go due north till they struck a line of railway Of course the Chinese ignorant of fhe country missed the water holes and only by a marvelous chance managed to reach a stage station more dead than alive Two of them died later from the horrible experiences of the journey The remainder were turned over to the United States marshal andI eventually shipp fl back to China AVmiinii In Motor Race

into something letter and more profitable than they glee were before jhas become n noticeable feature in the rural sections of New England Tho Uoton Transcript calls attention to the change in Berkshire county Muss tvhcre abandoned farms a few years igo were so numerous that it was feared the western part of the state In some sections would soon lie depop ulated In place of that there has Ihlen a recordbreaking period of con struction of street railways The erection of big and modern hotels has been noteworthy A large number of new jindustries of a minor importance have been inaugurated In many cases the former abandoned farms have become summer residences for those who have aretanxious to spend it Time advent of the simmer boarder has caused time desert of the last decade to bloom as a rose garden The abandoned farm house has now become a summer cottage whose picturesqucncss delights time trainedi eye of an artist Ail this says the Chicago Tribune is hilt the natural outcome of the movements of social summer life Originally the season lasted only from Tune until September and the seashore was the favorite resort Gradually the rush for investments became so great that nearly all available sites on the New England shore from Stoning ton to Eastport have been taken up as well as the islands near shore Those that arc left are held at such high figures that only millionaire can purchase and improve them Little by little the summer cottages have been pushed farther inland and as the season has now been extended from September when the seaside resorts clos to Thanksgiving time and the social locality changed from the shore to the hills thve has been a steadily increasing demand for these aban dOlled farms as autumn residences and summer residences alike Not a few of them also have been bought for golf links and the old farm houses turned into clubhouses Thus what was itt one time a serious problem has been most happily solved and those who have been lucky enough after moving away to the cities or elsewhere to bold on to their land will make handsome profits Tho wornout old farm has more than once proved to be a bonanza New Kind of lint The immense number of bananas which have been sent into this ennui ttr during recent years have been the means of introchwing several spiderseand beetles which have been inad vertcntly packed with them The most formidable creature that comes over in banana cases is a new kind of rat It is smaller than the or dinary sort quite black in color with round ears and a head shaped somewhat like that of a bat The little animal has a somewhat attrac tie appearance and in the early days of the banana trade the sales men were inclined to be kind to one 0I these rats if it was caught and make a pet of it
