of what la known as the Justice party has decided to call a na tional convention to meet in Washington April 19 1902 One of the chief demands of this party is that aged and decrepit exslavas shall bo the wards of the entire nation and bo provided for as public pensioners The foundations of the party are stated to be Justice to the needy and worthy cx laves whose good conduct during and since the war has proved them descry lug Justice to the Southern taxtyayers Justice to every man of every color creed and clime Justice for our own people justice to the Cubans to the Hawaiand the Porto Ricans and justice to every foreiguer who comes to assist in developing the manufacturing mercantile mining or r transportation resources of our groat countryJustice for the Jew and justice for the Gentile Justice for the Protestant the Cut ho lie or the followers of any other creed or sect Justice for the rich and justice for the poor The justice which holds sacred the rights of wealth but no lrs carefully protects those of the poorest vagabondJustice which guarantees to all the fullest personal liberty which does not infringe upon the rights ot others Do unto others aos you would that they should do unto you ARE WE IMMORTAL Mr Purkhnrst probably never gave utterance to any sentiment that caused a greater sensation than his declaration of last Sunday that the scriptures do not teach immunity of a soul from death and that the soul must be taken i caree of in this life else it will perish I utterly either at the death of the body or after a longer or shorter period of life beyond the grave His own words in regard to tho matter were as follows There is nothing in scripture or in things that encourage us to feel that u soul can be kept from dying any more than a body unless it is taken care of There is no warrent from the bible orjj from nature for supposing that soul cur ries within itself a policy of insurance against its own eventual obliteration This is certainly not sound prrpby terian doctrine but it is not at all certain that it is not sound scripturally logically The strongest argument from nature for the immortality of the soul is the universal belief of man in immortality and the universal desire for it coupled with the fact that there is no desire implanted in man that may not be gratified But this pees to prove only that immortality is possible As a general rule hunmn desires can be gratified only by effort and sometimes not then in individual cases The fair conclusion from the nature argument is that iirimdrtality muy be attained by t effort

increasing in good ness and usefulness all the years SCARCELY A CHANCE The chance for any political party to ever again defeat the political party that is in power in the United States JjMglorionsiy remote It may flatter the vanity and the old time educationI of the people to talk of the people con trolling their own government but as a matter of real truth the peoples part is mere form The power of the Qovernnient is now so groat so varied ramifying so many interests interests that are tied up in the continuance oft the party in power and these interest are so well organized so compact that they can bo thrown in any election as the party in power wills And this is not necessarily corrupt but self inter ests besides they can manufacture issues or give false colors to issues that sway and control the votes of the people For instance to oppose how ever honest or well founded any more I policy of the party in power as to what treasures is easily classed as treason and met only with that argument or opposition to any taxing or economic power exercised by the party in power is made to mean the ruin of all indusir r ries and business The political party in power now is entrenched as never before known in the history of this oppot matter what that opposition represents except when the dominant party may split by reason of its owji disagreement THAT 8200000 ci 2 It will be somewhat strange niter the y Government gives 200000 to help J build the levee from Hickman to the highlands of Tennessee and tho owners H of the overflowed lands in Tennessee H and Kentucky give an approximate sum if that enterprise shall fail by R reason of not being able to secure the right of way in Kentucky on which to K build the levee The Government lays pf it down as an absolute conditioni that appropriationj 4 of way is absolutely secured and the l peoples subscriptions are absolutely f necessary for their quota or prorata in the building of the levee This is the situation now what is to bo done about it It is expected that this leveo will reclaim about 150000 acres of land and that the population on the reclaim cd lands will be quadrupled It ought to bring increased trade business and wealth There are some who oppose thelevee and the Courier has no word 1 vof criticism or fault finding They way beTighAtlmlat any rate itis their privilege The hundreds of miles ofw

to the letter of the law Whether tho reports are true or not they have had their effect gnd every small laud owner and renter nearly in tho neighborhood seems to be dotermin ed oyer the matter They say that it has become question as to whether anybody can put up four wire fence in that section in the day as fast as they can be cut down at night Not only is this the case with that section but it is so in every other place in tho country where the fourwire fence is coutemplated The opposers claim that this was not the year to puss such a law as there has not been enough corn raised to put in more than half the crop next year munch less feed hogs Notices were posted in Lake county Teun for the negroes to vacate uiat county by Feb 11 and serious trouble was anticipated The farmers need this

Gregory the Great elected pope in 500 What con nection the Christian martyr should have with Cupids day the 14th of February it would be prett3 difficult to imagine Some historians say that the custom of mending valentines had its origin in heathen instead of Christian practices being concerned with some mysterious rite in honor of the god dess Juno The explanation1 that ttcems more less plausible that the holiday originating in the worship of Juno fchuulfl have received the name of e Christian Saint Valentine is that both duns day and the saints festival occurred on or about the same day lt

valentine to wliom he orshe would be mated for the rest of the year An old hook Missons Travels in England reports tlfttt on the eve of St Valentines an equal number of maids Ind bachelors get together each writest their true or some feigned name upon separate billets which they roll up and draw byway of lots the maids taking the mens billets and the men the maids so that each of the young urn lights upon a girl he calls his valentine and each of the girls upon a young man which she calls hers By this means ach has two valentines but the man sticks faster to the valentine that is fallen to him than to the valentine to whom he is fallen Fortune having thus divided the com parry Into so many couples the val entines give balls and treats to their mistresses wear their billets several days upon their bosoms or sleeves and this little sport often ends in love Further on Misson tells There isII another kind of valentine which is the first young man or woman chance t throws in your

billets and the men the maids so that each of the young men lights upon a girl he calls his valentine and each of the girls upon a young man which she calls hers By this means each has two valentines
