fellow citizen J C Harris has worried oyer neighbors everything The facts are as we get them the Lake II County Railroad before it is built is a f good deal like the Deckerville road i From Osceolaon the track about half I I timeWe confidence from oar source I of information that a survey will made at least a part of the way beII jug in the direction of Woodland within the next 30 days Perhaps ten days and work begin by or before the first day of January next The road can and in our opinion will be built with the help now on hand from Wood 1sileI gofarther I I and inducements may olTur themselves Lake County Advocate I V K Stevenson the greatest railroad iI builder the south ever produced with 10000 a mile of Tennessee State aid backing him declined to build the N N W r o a d r o a d across the head of Reelfoot Lake into Lake county because of tho immense cost and run his road into tho Mississippi at Hickman instead and these same facts exist today The people of Lake Coun ty who really want railroads to develop I their county should continue their ef forts in harmony with their Kentucky neighbors toward building a levee from Hickman to the Tennessee highlands With a substantial protecting levee tho building of railroads in that county will be not only practical but easy and desirable but without such a levee well nigh impossible With such a llev- ee the extension of the N N W is a foregono conclusion only to be delayed or hindered by factious opposition The building of short independent railroads these latter days excopt us desired feed ers to established roads are utterly out j of the question Tho bonds of such short roads cannot only not be float ed but the old roads can and will crush them at will if they pretend to indcpen deuce With the levee from Hickman one railroad into Lake county is cer tain and possibly the extension of the Illinois Central aloug the line from near Clinton surveyed sonic years ago and through the botttoms below Hickman I may be secured Some years since th Illinois Central favorably listcuel1 to r such an enterprise I 00WHEN CONGRESS MEETSII LEVEE APPROPRIATION WANTED Congress meets the 1st Monday in December toad the people interested in J the levee enterprise from Hickmau to thc highlands of Lake county 1rrlS to look after an appropriation from the Government to aidan building said levee In the last Congress the regular River and Harbors bill contained an ap propriation of 200000 for this enter prise which was voted by both Houses and only defeated by the factions oppo anion of Senator Carter who talked the bill to death at the last hour in the in terest of his irrigation appropriation It is generally conceded that a liberal River and Harbor appropriation will bo passed by the incoming Congress and that au appropriation for the Hickman and Lake County Levej will bo iuclud ed unless it is throttled and killed by its own friends It will be u great pity if such a great enterprise is hindered by such conditions More than 100000 acres of laud in Tennessee and probably 25000 in Kentucky would be reclaimed by tL building of this levee and one or more railroads sure to follow inside of said levee It is a strauge condition that any should oppose such an cuter prise and equally strange that the friends of levee enterprise should be divided and likely to injure or destroy each other The original levee idea was a levee from Hickman to the highlands in Lake County and this was the one presented to the last Congress and so favorably considered and this is the one most practical and that wonll re claim all the Kentucky and Tennessee lands Latterly however the idea has been given out of abandoning this line and building a levee across the head of Reelfoot Lake which would not only not reclaim the Kentucky lands but interestseWhat has brought about these conver gent conditions the Courier is not pro pared to say However it is noue the ownersymust look after their own interest and that interest is to make active effort to get the Government appropriation trom the incoming Congress and everything points to success on this line if proper efforts are made Of course Kentuckians would prefer to opecatevvith thq Lake County people as was the original plan if it is permitted and surely we do not wish to antagonize or in any way fight our neighbors interests if it can be avoided but our neighbors should know that self preservation is our first duty The Kentucky Company with good will to all and malice to none will actively look after these matters both before Congress and time

elected member of the Legislature from Hickman and Fulton Counties over Mott Ayres theis Democratic nominee by over 600 majorityFor first time in the history of tl two counties a democratic nominee has been defeated and a normal democratic majority of 2000 turned down It is useless at this time to discuss the cause The doom of the nominee was fixed irrevocably when the Committee refused1I or neglected to submit to a primary election in April when the county candidates in both counties were voted f ani nominated There were other points which entered into the count to be sure but this was the fatal mistake But these are bygones now and are referred only as lessons for the future Judge Naylor our Benreseutative elect is a democrat and has always been a democrat He will vote for a Democrat for United States Senator He will go into a democratic caucus toi nominate a candidate for United States Senator unless the party management make the mistake of refusing him ad missionsin which event he cannot help i it Whilst he is a democrat he is a conservative and is not likely to vote for any extreme party measure unlessI he believes that measure right On points of honest conviction he is firmI almost to stubbornness and anything n bull doatng would be a mere chaff to him He is a man of sound sense g codIjudgment hontst incorruptible andI will make the people a good

PASSING OF THE PARLOR The parlor is rapidly becoming ob solete said an Interior decorator And this is particularly true of suburban houses and applies also to city houses shat have been remodeled to con form to the new order of things The reception hall seems to be a necessity and opening on this is the library live ing room or whatever you choose to- call it Some people call it a music room but whatever the name it takes the place of the old fashioned parlor It is a good thing too I suppose we all recall the days of our youth when the parlor was something to be spoken of in whispers and regarded with awe It was a large darkened room containing stiff sparce furniture that had to al ways be arranged just so It was sa cred to company and on the rare occa sions when the sunlight was admitted it smelled strange and musty I am glad to see that the sensible people no longer love parlorsPhIladelphia Record LAZINESSA DISEASE If Mrs Demuth president of the Al ton Provident Association succeeds in securing the passage of a law declar ing laziness a disease and providing a compulsory cure phe will have solved one of the problems of the ages She may tightly be termed a woman of courage for her experience as a prac tical worker in philanthropic ffelds should make her familiar with the im mensity of the task she has undertaken Yet there is some difficulty in determining the course of reasoning that Mrs Demnth followed in deciding that laziness is adisease The man who will not work is according to Genesis striv ing to get around a divine injunction which declared that only by the sweat of the brow should man eat But labor is an acquired not a natural habit Still the better a man is the harder he will work The worse he is the more prone he is to live off the sweat of some one elses brow Of course the argu ment may be made that this way of looking at the breadandbutter prob lem is purely a mental point of yiew There will be some trouble in making an effectual division of the three kinds of men who will not work There are men who do not work because they cannot find a job to their liking There worldlygOodsAnd last of all but probably to Mrs Demuths mind the most important class of patients are those who will not work because the world owes them a living lf dG 1It Jot k l i iS 1T I t i x o r r t Pleasant RoomsTV 44- f Our furniture will make you c

before the inquiry was asked for and ordered it Is hardly probable that the navy department will be any more strnnuout than it was when it was per mitting a dirty conspiracy to hutch in the bureaus of the department and when it had no disciplinary restraint for the tongue of slander among officers There is too much danger that the liars justlceperhl1ps dacity with soft assignments A PLEA FOR HARMONY The power of the Democratic press to influence the political trend has never greaterthanfluence should be brought to bear to unify Democratic strength in order to continue Democratic supremacy in the state The election next year will be an important one and bear directly on the national campaign in 1904 and the democracy should stay nil uncalled for friction and enter the campaign next year with a solid compact organization one that will insure victory The per sonal wishes or ambition of no ono manor set of men should be allowed to tram mel the way The couutry press al ways honest and never afraid to speak plainly should be the unit in securing party harmony This can be done with out injury to the rights of any ambitious Democrat leaving all free to seek a gratification of personal ambition through the proper channels the pri maries tho old democratic doctrine equal rights to all special favors to none still applies of yore Just criticism is always in order and often pro ductive of good but factional quarrels are ever detrimental to party organiza tion and are usually fruitless and use less IVMNLEYS DOCTOR BILLS CONGRESS WILL BE ASKED TO APPROPRIATE 100000 FOR THAT PURPOSE

IIlo Dlnconrnc CIrcle of Centuries zLnd of Good Uceilx Copyright 1801 by Louis Klopsch N Y- In this discourse Dr Talmage shows that the good or evil we do re turns to bless or blast us text Isaiah 1122 It is He that sitteth upon the circle of the earth While yet people thought that the world was flat and thousands of years before they found out that it was round Isaiah in my tot intimated the shape of it God sitting upon the circle of the earth The most beau tiful figure in nil geometry is the circle God made the universe on the plan of a circle There are in the natural world straight lines angles parallelograms diagonals quadrangles but these evidently are not Gods favor lies Almost everywhere you find him geometrlzing you find the circle thorn inant and if not th6 circle then the curve which is a circle that died young If it had lived long enough it would have been a full orb a pen phery An ellipse is a circle pressed only a little too hard at the sides I Giants Causeway in Ireland shows what God thinks of mathematics Thieve are over 35000 columns of rocks octagonal hexagonal pentagonal I These rocks seem to have j been made by rule and compass Every artist has his molding room where he may make fifty shapes but lIe chooses one shape as preferable to all others I will not say that the Giants Causeway was the worlds moldingroom but I do say out of a great many figures God seems to have selected the circle as the best It is He that sitteth on the circle of the earth The stars in a circle the moon in a circle the sun in a circle the universe in a circle and the throne of God the center of that circle Appreciation of this would correct the architecture of churches whQse shape is often a defiance of divine suggestion When men build church es they ought to imitate the idea of the Great Architect and put the audi ence in a circle knowing that the tides of emotion roll more easily that way than in straight lines Six thousand years ago God flung this world out of His right hand but He did not throw it out in a straight line but curvilinear with a leash of love hold ing it so as to bring it back again The world started from llis hand 1nld Ld t io JtJo1tnr111fon through regions of moral ice and distemper How long it will roll God only knows but it will in due time make complete circuit and come back to the place where it started the hand of God pure and Edenic The history of the world goes in ai circle Why is it that the shipping in our day is improving so rapidly A scientific builder says it is because men arc imitating in some respects what the small wits deride the old model of Xoahs ark not as we see it in old time pictures but as it really was according to the account given Great ships have we now but where is the ship on tho sea today that could outride a deluge in which the heaven and earth were wrecked land ing all passengers in safety two of each kindof creatures hundreds of thousands ot species Pomology will go on with its achievements until after many centuries the world will have plums antI pears equal to the paradisaical The art of gardening will grow for cen turics and after the Downings and Mitchalls of the world have done their best in the far future the art of gardening will come up to the ar boreseence of the year 1 If the mak iluproingt1leto make something equal to the east window of York minster which was built in the year 1200 We are six centuries behind those artists but the world must keep on toiling until it shall make the complete circuit and come up to the skill of those very menIf improveinawhile perhaps after the advance of centuries mortar equal to that which English ans 1600 years ago that mortar today as good as the day in which it was made having outlasted the brick and stone I say after hundreds of years masonry may advance to that pointIf the world stands long enough we may have a city as large as they had in old times Uabylon five times the size of London You go into the pot teries of England and you find them making cups and vases after the style of the cups and vases exhumed from Pompeii The world is not go swingingInthe Styles of pottery known so long ngo as the days of Pompeii The world must keep on progressing un til it makes the complete circuit The curve is in the right direction the curve will keep on until Tt becomes the circle Well now what is true in the ma terial universe is true in Gods moral government and spiritual arrange ment That is the meaning of Eze kids wheel All commentatorsagree In saying that the wheel means Gods providence But a wheel is of no use unless it turns and if it turns it turn around and if it turns around It moves in a circle What then Are we parts of a great iron machine whirled around jriether e will orjI It k i not the victims of inexorable fate No So far from that I shall show you that we ourselves start the cor cle of good or bad actions and that it will surely come around again to us unless by Divine intervention it be hindered Those bad or goodactions may make the circuit of many years but come back to us they will as certainly as that God sits on the circle of the earth Jezebel the worst woman of the Bible Shakespeare copying his Lady Macbeth from her picture slew Naboth because she wanted his vineyard While the dogs were eating ihe body of Nabolh Elijah the prophet put down his compass and marked a circle from those dogs clear around to the dogs that should eat the body of Jezebel the murderess Impossible the people said That will never happen Who is that be ing flung out of the palace window Jezebel A few hours after they came around hoping to bury her They find only the palms of the hands and the skull The dogs that devoured Jezebel and the dogs that devoured Naboth oh what a swift what an awful circuit But do not become impatient be cause you cannot sec the curve of events and therefore conclude that Gods government is going to breakdown History tells us that in the making of the pyramids it took 2000 men two years to drag one great stone from the quarry and put it into II the pyramids If men short lived can afford to york so slowly as that cannot God in the building of eternities afford to wait Whnt though God should take 10000 years to draw a circle Shall we take our little watch which we have to wind up every night lest it run down and hold it up beside the clock of eternal ages If according to the Bible a thousand years are in Gods sight as one day then according tothat calculation the 6000 years of the worlds existence has been only to God as from Monday to Saturday But it is often the case that the rebound is quicker the return Is much quicker than that The circle is suon er completed You resolve that you will do what good you can In one j week you put a word of counsel In the heart of a Sabbath school child During that same week you give a letter of introduction to a young man struggling in business During the same week you make an exhortation in a prayer meeting It is all gone You will never hear of it perhaps you think A few years after a man comes up to you and snys Yon don Jrtiow me do you You say No i gont remember ever to have seen jo Why he says I was in the Sajbatti school class over which you Vejp the teacher One Sunday you inv1d me to Christ I accepted the offia You towfefVjBSBertThat is where I preach orv D you

public Interests Come up to my house and see me V Or a man comes to you arid say I want to introduce myself to you I went into a prayer meeting soriieI years ago 1 sat back by the door You arose to make an exhortation That talk changed the course of my life and if I ever get to Heaven un der God I will owe my salvation to you In only ten twenty or thirty years the circle swept out and swept back again to your own grateful heart But sometimes it is a wider circle and does not return for a great while I saw a bill of expenses for burning Latimer and Ridley The bill of ex penses has thrse items among others PenceOne4 Cartage for four loads of wood 2 Item a post i 4 Item two chains z 4 Item two staples fii Item our laborers 2I Si making in all 25s Sd That was cheap fire considering all the circumstances but it kindled a light which shone all around the world and aroused fhc martyr spirit and out from that burn ing of Latimer and Itidley rolled the circle wider and wid r starting other circles convoliUng overrunning cir cumscribing overreaching all Heaven a circle But what is true of the good is just as true of the bad You utter a slander against your neighbor It has gone forth from
