Doubtless the majority of these men were never in a lodge room and have not the remotest Idea at what they are striking. It is a great source of oratory for them that men will do things In the name of the lodge that they will not do la the name of the church. This Is true but whose fault is it, the church or the lodge? Certainly not that of the lodge, for they only try to do good, and It is natural that they should want the credit therefor. Nowdays any one can join the church regardless of what he has' been, if he will hold up his hind on a kind of vow ; but is it so with the lodge? (We do not refer to fraternal insurWhen a man ance organizations.) applies for membership his record Is looked into and the members have a chance to express their views as to said membership. If the applicant has no references he must get them. The church has the same right but who ever raises an objection? What man can go into a strange town and borrow 'money and receive other favors of value on the grounds that he is a member of the church. Yet a Mason can do it ! an Odd Fellow can do it I Why is this? The answer isonly too apparent : anybody can join the church and anybody can stay In it. A man can gamble, drink, swear and associate with any kind of company and yet never be questioned ; a woman can dance, play cards, and gamble in their own homes for a cut glass prize or a pair of silk hose and still sing in the choir ! A shoddy looking individual may go to a church service and who will notice or give him the right hand of fellowship? Nobody I Not so in the lodge. We are for churclPfirst and the lodge afterwaid, out it is up to these people who are making so much fuss over the evils of the lodge to first apply their energy to making the church as a body of people more to be desired and sought after by tne wayfarer than the lodge.

It does seem that women have more than a fair share Jof the aches and pains that afflict huAanlty ; they must "keep up," must attend to duties in spite of constantly 'aching backs, or headaches, dizzy spells, pains; they must stoop over, when to stoop means torture. They must walk and bend and work with racking pains and many aches from kidney ills. Kidneys cause more suffering than any other organ of the body. Keep the kidneys well and health is easily maintained. Read of a remedy for kidneys only that helps and cures the- - kidneys and is endorsed by people .you know. Mrs. R. L. Graves, Shaw Road, Hickman Ky., says : "I had an at tack of kidney trouble which made my back very lame and weak. Headaches were frequent, felt tired and found it difficult, some days, to finish my housework. Learning about Doan's Kidney Pills, by read- ing accounts of their good work in the newspapers, I went to Helm & Ellison's drug store and procured a box. They rid me of the lameness in my back, restored my strength and made it possible for me to do my housework, without any incon venience. I think I can truthfully say Doan's Kidney Pills benefitted me more than anything l ever tried." For sale by all' dealers. Price 50 cents.

Since January 1 last there has been paid out by the State more than $100,000 for soldiers to suppress the night riders. The Board Equalization increased the assessment on, farm lands to an amount that provided $200,000 of new mon. ey, thus making the expense of the soldiers fall on the farmers. As there will be soldiers as long as there are night riders, the quicker the organization disbands the better. I?' A pain prescription is printed upof Dr. Snoop's Pink Pain Tablets.

The independence that comes to a man when his work is over and he feels that he has run out of the storm into the quiet harbor of home, where he can rest in peace with his family, is something real. It does not make much difference whether you own your house or have one little room in that house, you can make that little room a home to you. Youi can people it with such moods, you can turn to it with such sweet fancies, that it will be to you the very perfection of a home. Against this home none of you should ever transgress.

He may have to accept of an humble calling, but will rapidly climb the ladder. "As the twig is bent the tree is inclined" and it is the homes without pleasures or happiness that sends the children upon the streets in search of a more congenial atmosphere than they find beneath the parental roof. There are none of us so poor but we can train a few roses on the humble wall, and their scent and beauty will long be remembered, and many a boy, instead of going to loaf upon the public highway will linger at home among the flowers. Moral degradation always begins at home. Honesty is never gained or lost suddenly, or by accident, but idleness feeds upon it and will, in time, use up the last vestige. The happy home, be it a cottage or a mansion, furnishes no recruits for any army of unemploy abdicates. 'It bears no blazonry of bloom to charm the senses with fragrance or splendor, but its homly hue is more nckautlng than the lily or the rose. It yields no fruit in earth or air, yet, should its harvest fail for a sfegle year, famine would depopulate the world." The Sunflower, Does Your Of all the words cherished In the recollection of man of all the names held sacred in his memory, that of mother falls upon his heart with the most sublime influence. How sweet the recollection in after years of a mother's tender training, and who is there that finds no relief in recurring to the scenes of his infancy and youth gilded with the recollections And how of a mother's tenderness. many have nobly owned, that to the salutary influence, then exerted, they must ascribe their future suc cess, their avoidance of evil, when no eyes were upon them, but which rested on the heart, the warnings, prayers and tears of a mother. Others may love as fondly, but never again while time is ours, shall any one's love be to us as fond, as tender, as devoted, as was that of our dear old trembling mother. Through helpless infancy her throb bing heart was our safe protection and support, and through the ills and maladies of childhood, her gen tie hand ministered and soothed as none other could. We feel ani mated to struggle more manfully in the great battle of life, when we remember our mother's holy coinsel to us in childhood's early dawn and in the slippery paths of youth. Ah 1 those words of tenderness those pious precepts softened by a mother's love too much unheeded, then disregarded live now bright ened in memory, and constitute our sweetest recollections. Her prayers for us in childhood her sparkling crystal tears made an impression on our young mind as durable as time, and even now they bid us walk in the paths of rectitude. But alas ! how little do a majority of us appreciate a mother's tenderHow heedless ness while living are we in youth of all her anxieties and kindness! But when she is dead and gone ; when the cares and coldness of the world come withering to our hearts ; when we experience how hard it is to find true sympathy, how few will befriend us In our misfortune, then we think of the mother that loved us and to her our hearts 1 success. 3.

Upon investigation, the Courier finds that the report, which has been prettv well circulated around here, to the effect that night riders had ordered the Hickman cotton gins to close, is without foundation, No such warning has been received. This rumor possibly grew out the Troy Tenn., gin troubles. It is true that a gin at that place was closed last week on account of threats made by the night riders and partly for another reason. The closing of that gin was the cause of considerable Tennessee cotton being brought to Hickman, and Mr. Moffett (whose gin was shut down) sent word to S. L. Doods that it might be hazardous to buy cotton from that section, and Mr. Dodds, acting on this advice, declined to buy some cotton from near Troy. The Farmers Gin Si Grain Co., however, continued to buy all the Tennessee cotton that wai offered them without fear of serious consequences. One gin at Troy is still in oderation. It is owded or controlled by the farmers union, and those who are having their cotton ginned are holding it for a better price. So long as they do that, we are told, the night riders will have no kick, as they demand that .cotton must not be sold for less than a certain figure. So that is about the substance of the report.

Without waiting to see, what effect the blow had had, Jerry was nt tho hatchway snatching the life preserver from Its fastening. A moment later, after casting a final glance at the still body of the officer, ho climbed over the rail and dropped Into the black water. Mike O'Connor's quick wits were hard at work the moment after Jerry announced his determination to leave the vessel that night and to risk his life In tho waters of tho harbor. After taking the launch In about 100 yards ho suddenly stopped tho machinery and appeared to bo worried. "Come, come, man," Impatlcnrty said Andre, who sat nearest hlra. "Why do you not go, on?" "The propeller Is balking," answered to concentrato his Mike, seeming whole attention to a part of tho machinery. Ills sole purpose in stopping 1ho machinery was to afford Jerry all possible, time before effecting a landing. The delay was not as long as bo Intended It should be, for tho Impatient, nervous Andre touched tho wheel that' set tho propeller In motion again. Mlko made no excuse, but his .wits were working harder than ever. He was as familiar with the waters and tho dockago of Vera Cruz as any sailor that came to them, but this time be determined to mako his memory falling. Instead of drawing up at the proper pier he nosed the boat into an adjoining slip, discovering tho "mistake:" only after ho had gono 25 yards. 3!u exercised tinduo caution in swinging the launch around and in picking his way to tho right landing place, which, judging from tho conversation, was familiar to Andro. As ho brought the boat to a stop, be figured that be had unnecessarily consumed about 20 minutes. Ho also knew, however, that Jerry had not had timo to roach tho pier, and there was a feeling deep In his heart that ho would not succeed in getting to Bhore at all. Andro and Felipe appeared very netvous as they landed, each continually castlug his eyea about and scan ning the faces of tho few men at tho landing. Mike assisted In taking some luggage to the end of tho pier, whero a closed carriage was In wait ing. There was no other vehicle in --- would nrrlvo In the City of Mexico nc cording tc schedule, ho figured that ho would have ono hour In which to reach tho number In Callo Collseo. Ho felt thnt I.uck would.jtot desert him now, nnd ho worried but llttlo about tho train's being on timo. Ills heart grew cold nt tho thought thnt perhaps Mlko O'Connor would not contlntto to follow tho captain of tho yacht, nnd that tho mysterious trio would succeed In spiriting Marina beyond his ultimate reach. '"If I only had hid another day." ho thought, mentally cursing tho lock thnt had stood by Mm so valiantly, "I could hnvo rescued her. Mlko O'Connor tuny keep on tho trait, and he may not.

Jerry put tho envelope Into his pocket, for tho Instructions ho had received from tho black sack of destiny In the darkness of the chamber a year before gavo him an hour In which to acquaint himself with Its contents. Mr. Wentworth, n quiet, pleasant gentleman, had been in Mexico for more than 15 years, and it had been said thnt but few know moro about tho mines nnd mining possibilities of tho country than he. Ho showed much Interest In Jerry, but not cmce did he touch upon tho sacred subject of his exporlrnco In tho twelvemonth Just ended. "That envelope," said ho, "was In my keeping for nltnost a year, having como from New York, and It has been In my safe until this very morning. I trust that you will havo luncheon with mo and that.

There Is no such fellow " "Great Scott, that's meant for mo!" exclaimed Jerry, as ho started after boy.
