But enthusiasm and patriotism was given free rein then, and the President and his prd cession were cheered to the echo. Like the inauguration of President Abraham Lincoln, that of President Cleveland in 1885 denoted a change in the parties in power, and was a noteworthy event In the history of avenue - pageants Pennsylvania Hundreds of thousands of people poured into the city from every sec- - tion of the United States to witness the ceremonies. No such millitary display had been in Washington' since the grand review of 1865 at the close if the war. Benjamin Harrison's inaugural procession in 1885 was nothing out of ordinary, but whin President McKinley was inaugurated for the first time the procession was quite as extensive and as imposing as that which escorted Cleveland. Numerically President Taft's escort may not be as strong as that which President Cleveland, but it will be even more Interesting. Mrs. A. 0.

We are also indebeted to one of our lady readers for the copy. The conditions which made this paradox possible have had no parallel in the story of the race. The bloodiest war in history had just closed. The conquered South lay helpless amid her rags and ashes, with the flower of her manhood buried in nameless graves. Four million negroes had been suddenly freed and the economic world torn from the foundations of centuries. Five billion dollars worth of property had been destroyed, every bank had been closed, every dollar of money had become worthless paper, and the country had been plundered by victorious armies. With the sympathetic aid even of their foes, the task of recorganizing their wrecked society and controlling these millions of ignorant and superstitious negroes was one to appall the stoutest hearts. Instead of the of a generous conqueror, the helpless South, as she staggered to her feet, received full in the face a blow of vengeance so terrible, so cruel and so pitiless that it surpasses belief. Such a blow on a disarmed foe could never have been struck but for the tragedy of Lincoln's assassination and the frenzy of insane passion, "which for the moment blinded the North. Upon the assassination of the President the greatest and meanest man who ever dominated our National lite, became the dictator of the Republic. This man, Thaddeus Stevens, was beyond any doubt the most powerful parliamentary leader in our history. A fanatic, a misanthrope embittered by physical deformity, a born revolutionist endowed with the audacity of the devil, he became in a moment the bold and unscrupulous master of a crazed nation. before this crisis he had become infatuated with a mulatto woman of extraordinary animal beauty, whom he had separated from her husband. This yellow vampire fattened on him during his public career, amassed a fortune in real estate in Washington, wrecked his great ambitions, and made of A giant among him a social pariah. men, whose young soul had learned the pathway of stars, his cheeks now whitening with the "frosts of death, he was slowly sinking with this woman into the night of negroid animalism. The muffled crack of a derringer In the box at Ford's Theater, and the hand of a madman, suddenly snatched him from the grave and lifted him Into the seat of empire with his negro wench by his side. Mr. Stevens determined to blot the old South from the map, confiscate the property of its citizens, give it to the negroes, deprive the whites of the ballot, send their leader into beggard exile, enfrauhise the negro, and make him the master of every State from the James to the Rio Grande. If this statement seems an exaggeration, turn to the "Congressional Globe" for 1867, page 203, and read Mr. Stevens' Confiscation Act, House Bill No 29 and his speech in its defense a speech which lights with the glare of immortal infamy Twenty-eight-years VOoutlnueU oil ttut pa) Surely these Reasons will Persuade you To trade here of the firsl qual- Everything ity.

I lind the pleasure of tienrlna Kev.Turk-Ingtoii- , pallor of the llnptlit church, but Hunting afternoon, and I wish to commend the statement thnt Deemed to Iiethe central nlm of Ills terniou. Ills text was from Jno. 8:14, Mr. Moody1! fuvorlte text after he had been converted by Henry Vnrley, of Mr. Moody had prcachrd for jenrs that (lod hated sinners, but when be heard Mr. Varlcy preach on "God so loved the world Hp gave HH only begotten son that whosoever belleveth In Him should not perish but have everlasting life," he said that he learned that Ood loved the sinner but bated the sin. In speaking of thefultu that saves the soul, Mr.Turkington said It was not simply fattbortbe head but of the heart, while It Included Intelligence of the brain It must go deeper. It must lie of the heart; and In order to Illustrate bis meaning, he said, an Intellectual belief was like the man, who, when told that If he would first dip his band n water another man could pour melted Irrell-SlouKim-lan- Denr Sim tiring, immediately thrusting her hand Into water prenenleil It for the hot melted load and It rolled off like water from a duck's lck. Thus be said tho faith that trust (lod must lie first put Into nctlim. This. It seems to me. Is the essenco of a true religious experience. The question thnt naturally occurs to an Intelligent, honest mnn Is, what act Ion does Owl now require of everyone hen he first believe with his heart unto righteousness? If this could I simplified so thnt all of our good nelghliors could read It In the same words at thr same time In the same place with Jesus Christ personally present and seen by all, as the twelve apostles saw Hint when He said In Mark I61IA, "He that lie. Iletethand Is baptised shnll lie saved." whnt would thry allsay? If they bad heard Christ tell the apostles the words of Matthew's esse, 'Tlo, if os pel sth chapter and 1Mb make declplesof all nations, Imptlslng them. What would they iigreo a4 the act follow Ing Immediately upon teaching nod faith? If they had heard Jesus speak to that honorable senator, of Jerusalem, as record-oi- l in Jno. II;, "Ktcept a mnn be lorn of wnter and of the Spirit he cannot enter Into the kingdom ufdod." whnt would they nllngree was the first act of the mnn whose mind bad been Impregnated by the Holy Spirit through the preaching of the Word of find? before he could enter Into covenant relations with (lod In Ills Kingdom or church on earth. If they had heard Jesus tell the apostles what lAike records In Jilh chapter and ITtb terse., "That repentance and remission of sins should lie preached In His name ninongall nations beginning at Jerusalem." would they not nllngree thnt Jerusalem was the place to learn how to preach and practice In the name of Christ and not the rtter Jordan nor the sermon on the mount? And If they all had been with the apostles at Jerusalem on the day of I'entecost when (lod and Christ loth spoke by the Holy Spirit through Peter, and they heard the same words that are written In "Itepent and lie baptised everyActs one of you In the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit." what would they all agree was the act following repentance, necessary to obtain remission of sins and the gift of the Holy Spirit? And If they had all seen I.ufcc write the words found In Acts 1:41, "Then they that received bis ( Peter's) word wero baptised." what would they all agree was the act Immediately following their faith In Peter's word by which they were united to the family or church of tiod? If fnlth only becomes "saving faith" when It Is put Into action, as the brother suys, why cannot we all agree In Jllckmnnaslo the act (iod requires everyone to do In order to put his faith Into action? Especially since we all have read that Matthew olid Mark and Luke and John and Peter In Acts JtfMl agree with Christ that baptism In water or birth of water Is the specified condition wherein everyone must put his faith lntoactlon In order to enter into the Kingdom of (iod. And If we all as brethren of the same family of one common Lord, could have seen Peter write those wonderful words In I Peter where referring to Noah being saved by water and the ark, says "The like figure w hereunto even baptism 3:?-SI, lend over his hand without burning lilin, he "I bellove you." but that thefnlthof the heart that trusted was seen In the act of the woman, who, when told the same sulci. doth also now sntn us, (not the putting away the llUh of the flesh but the answer of a good conscience.! by the resurrection of Jesus Christ," would we not all hae agreed thnt wnter baptism In soma divine way wrought a good conscience In everyone who having faith In the resurrection of Jesus Christ, thus, put his faith Into action?

This tendenoy throughout the cotton textile world of splndleage to run ahead of actual consumption has been a feature of the trade for the greater part of the past two years.

As the East and the Mediterranean countries, and such rapidly developing powers as Mexico take to manufacturing for their own domestic needs as well as for exports, some succeed in eularging their cotton acreage, but not correspondingly.

This Constitution Amendment will remove these restrictions, which are a barrier to the passage of such a system of road Laws by our Legislature as it will enable our counties and our state, and perhaps our Federal Government to join hands In this Important work of building and maintaining a system of improved highways io all parts of Kentucky, the accomplishment of which would do so much for the advancement and, progress and development of Kentucky, and would mean more than all else for the comfort, convenience and improved condition of all our people. If this Constitutional Amendment receives a majority of the votes at that election, it will then be possible for Kentucky to pass such a system of Good Road Laws as are in effect In the states of New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Michigan, Massachusetts, California and Pennsylvania, and in fact every other state where progess and advancement is being mide in building and maintaining good roads, while our own Kentucky is at a standstill.

In his terror Willing-haturned to retrace his steps across the railroad track and the train barely missed striking the buggy. Willingham's terror increas ed and not until the buggy collided with a post did he stopped running. One wheel of the buggy was demolished by the collision and the vehicle was further damaged by Willingham's frantic efforts to jerk if free.

He succeeded in enfranchising the negroes and disfranchising enough whites to give him a majority. He placed a ballot in the hand of every negro and a bayonet at the breast of every white man. He organised the negroes into oath bound secret societies, known as "Union Leagues" ues," in which they were drilled in insolence and crime, and taught to hate their former masters, over whom they were promised unlimited dominion. His military satraps nailed to the court-hous- e doors of every county proclamations of equality, andpromis-e- d bayonets to enforce the intermarriage of whites and blacks. A reign of terror immediately followed. The men who represented Aryan civilization and to take their choice between rebellion and annihilation. At this moment in South Carolina 80,000 armed negro troops, answerable to no authority save the savage instincts of their black officers, terrorized the State, and not a single white man was allowed to bear arras. Hordes of former slaves, with the intelligence of a children, and the instincts of savages, armed with modern rifles, paraded daily before their formey masters. The children of the breed of Burns and Shakespeare, Drake and Raleigh, had been made subject to the spawn of an African jungle. When Goth and Vandal overran Rom: and blew out the light of ancient civilization, they never dreamed the leprous infamy of raising the black slave, spindle-shanke- d a thick-lipenegro, torule over his while master and lay his claws upon his daughter. Could modern flesh and blood endure it? sudNo. The Spirit of denly leaped forth, "half startled at her herself, her feet upon the ashes and the rags, her hands tight gripped upon the throat" of tyrant, thief and beast.

The movements of these white and scarlet were like clockwork. horsemen They struck shrouded in a mantle of darkness and, terror, and they struck to kill. Discovery or retalliation was impossible. Their edicts were executed as by destiny without a word, save the whistle of their Night Hawk, the crack of his revolver, and the hoofbeat of swift horses, moving like figures in a dream, and vanishing in mists and shadows. The Southern people in their despair had developed the courage of the lion, the cunning of a fox, and the deathless faith of religions en- thusiasts. With magnificent audacity, infinite patience, and remorseless zeal a conquered people now turned his own weapon against their conqueror and beat his brains out with the bludgeon he had placed in the hands of their former slaves. And so a lawless band of night raders became the sole guardians of society, brought order out of chaos, law out of lawlessness, and preserved our race in America from extinction at last in negroid mongrelism. Had the South in that crisis become mulatto, the North would inevitably have sunk to its level. Engraved cards and embossed tationery and cards of every description at this office.
