anxious that this season of Lent shall be of real valu to the members of our church Wit h this end In view I request every o to receive this as a personal communication reading it thoughtfully and carefully Once a year there comes a season when the church following the life of Christ draws near his cross and then she intensifies what is her constant practice By multiplied ser vices by special denials andsearch ing selfexaminations by meditation and prayer we approach the cross and learn its meaning As tb Master when He would be with God sought some solitude so the church leads her children into the desert place awhile When the fast railway train stops at certain long distances you hear the stroke of the hammer on wheel1 after wheel and the ring that answers tells whether there is any flaw in the metal And just such a pau in the rush of life and just such a stroke on the wheels of character Iis the discipline of Lent Lent is an old English word t which means Spring Spring i by Gods law the time of revival In the natural world So In Lent Hli Spirit calls the church each parish each Christian to a revival of their ssuls life not that we may go back after Lent to the same old level but that our faith becoming more deep iy rooted may enable us each ye J to live at a greater elevation above earth and nearer to heaven In other words these forty days are given us that we may after the exa ple of our Lord withdraw from t nt niotiirr nf the world draw nearer to God The volunteer regiment go into camp Ifte once a year to drill and submit to martial law So the ren of Ged voluntarily allot a spt ot time to give themselves wbol to His holy will and pleasure As to the just and ridicule we so often hear about Lent we leave that for the funny editor of the comic papers or for the society editors of the daily papers As Christians tread on holy ground This Lenten season will bring to each one of us if we will let it iits peculiar blessings as we use its sacred helps and when it iis past and it b been to us + a well kept Lent will be an expression of grass experiencesr in the timehonored season that for o many centuries has helped sou heavenward And now I take tb I opportunity to say that there will be services at the church on Ash Wed nesday February 13 at 10 am and Friday night February 14 at 7 p m C L Price Decline to Run- I Cton my making t race for senator

to convince each one of us that the greatest need this town has is a levee for the western part of the town Isnt tHe recent deluge enough to open the eyes of the most unobserving citizen In town Isnt it a fact that you now see if you have never seen it before that the absence of a levee for thus place is demoralizing to trade more than anything else you could think oU Dont you know that depriving sew eral hundred men of work for sev eral weeks IIs a natural reason that trade Is Injured to an enormous ex tent 1 Not only that the factories are of course losing money the In1dSyldualvaluation of property it not what it would be If the levee was there s tenants are put to an awful expense moving from pUce to place often suffering privations en account of their homes being submerged to the extent that they cannot live in them and cannot find any plate in which tome e i That which hurts one business from this cause hurts another and there is not a business in Hickman that would not be directly benefitted by the levee It Iis a faot that a deluge like the one subsiding injures the tewn of Hlokman placing the estimation conservatively causes a loss of not lets than 10000 Now feUowoUUens let us wake up to our own interests not only our own Interests but to the interests of our neighbors Let us quit talk ing of what ought to be done and do something Let us NOT let another deluge catch us unprepared for it It will be practically an easy mat ter to obtain enough by subscription to build this needed levee before soother high water We are satis fled the Mengel people the oil mill people and the railroad company will subscribe liberally and we will say here that If some one will cir culate a subscription paper in the Interest of this movement with a view to taking active steps when a subscription is received we will do our part toward furthering the enter prise and a private subscription for five dollars to start on can be found at the Courier office The N C St

was completed spe cial notices were sent to the guilty parties to appear at once at the office on Important business Most of the people thought that a valuable pack age or a money order delayed in the holiday rush had just been received They rushed to the office and were greeted by the special agent who took them on one side and read the law to then The law says any one guilty of placing a letter or writing of any kind in a package mailed at merchandise rates is guilty of vio lating the postal laws and shall pay a fine of 10 or more or DC sent to jail In each case the ten was planked down in a hurry The special agent staled that during the past year the practice of placing writing in packages bad increased over 200 per cent and that the government had issued orders to open every package Six persons were caught in the first haul and in the future all packages will be watched Cape Girardeau Republican Card Parties Must Go The laws committee of the Ala bama legislature has reported favor

than farmers have in themselves or in one another This 1 Is strikingly exemplified in The American Boys Account of Keeping Tab on the World The wide a wake American says How would you like to get on a train ct Boston with a ticket in your pocket for St Petersburg and with only the neces I Icityof changing cars be able to make the entire trip from the capital r I IofMassaohusetts to the capital of the Russian Empire overland I pessimistIcross And yet the day fs comingwhen you will see my words realized de clared the railroad mMuA bie corporation has already been formed in New Jersey to carry out the idea But how are you going to build a railroad across the ocean Not going to If you remember there is a point at Bering Strait where the Asiatic and North Amen i can continents are only thirtyfive miles apart It is here the company hopes to build a tunnell under the water connecting the big American trunk lines with the big Siberian railroadAs explained it the proposed tunnell will be only a short distance horn the Arctic Circle in latitude 66 y degrees JO minutes north This would make it necessary to do the greater part of the construction amid almost constant ice and snow and the difficulties in the way of success would mean an outlay of millions of dollars before the rails could be laid and a train make the circuit Imagine an engineer haying to keep a watch for a polar bear on the tracks ahead and the fireman shivering as lie feeds the roaring furnace And what will it oust to build this roadThe civil engineer reports that with economical management the tunnel can be built for 40000000 The remainder of the rood will raise the cost to at least 75000000 before it is completed It is doubtful even if the work was begun imme diately if the line could be built under twenty years ItTblsenterprise that American money kings are pouring millions into however A road is being completed from Denver to Salt Lake City through the Rocky Mountains In eleven miles twentynine tunnels as have been bored through the solid to rack each one costing la the neigh borhood of 100000 More than 250000 was spent in a survey of the line before any work whatever in the way of construction was begun The first fifty miles of road out of Denver cost 60000 a mile and the w next thirtyfive miles the enormous sum of 100000 a wile for grading SI alone before a single tie was laid be The main tunnel of the road is three miles long at an elevation of 9600 feet and cost 750000 The worst part of this road has been completed and the remainder it is expected Twill be rushed through with little S difficulty Now who pays for all these rail roads Who is paying for the Pan in ana canal Who pays for our large factories stores warehouses halls graneries parks etc Remember the old story of the merchant who put a blackboard in his store and told the people of each calling to j write what they did The doctor wrote I practice for all the teach cr I teach for jll the lawyer I plead for all the mechanic I build for all but the farmer wroteI pay for all Yea the farmer pays for all for every bne except him can pass the debt or tax on but he is taxed at the buying end and the selling end All tLese railroad kings are confi dent that the farmers will not only payjar these gigantic railroads bu will also support them after they an- built and pay good salaries to the mee vho
