The above declarations wero published In a Chicago periodical recently, nnd they struck us with considerable force. So much bo that wo felt that It would not bo out of place to reproduce them In tbcC ourler Next to self respect comes civic prido, and a man seldom posscssca ono without tho other and the man who does not poseess a goodly share of both makes an undesirable citizen. A loyal town man Js the very best asset a tow n can have and the growth of every town depends largely upon tho number of Ittt patriotic citizens. A man's patriotism Is regulated by tho strength of his belief In his town and without a firm belief In his town, he cannot be a public spirited towtibJiian, and both himself and his town would bo better off If ho would leave It, for as a rule tho man that Is not a booster Is tr knocker. Hla Indifferent attitude to everything that would hato a tendency to uplift, and his refusal to enter Into the Hplrlt of local enthusiasm Is a knock for bis town. Almost every town has Its "sore heads" and "knockers" and whllo Hickman hsis nbout as few of them as any town of Its size, etlll occasionally a well defined caso will show-ueven in Hickman. As a rule the chronic knocker 1b a bom failure himself, unwilling to ace his neighbor or He his town accomplish anything. Is Uie fellow that every ono knows to bo unreliable and ho carries but Ilttlo forco with his hammer, and therefore this kind does but little harm. Hut tbero Is another kind the fellow who does not know that he- - is a "knocker," that Is tho dangerous kind. The fellow who Is well connected and holds a position that gives pros-tag- e to his words he la tho knocker that really holds back tho growth of bis town and here Is his attitude: Motor Boats The Hickman Motor Works has engaged the services of Mr. Friedenberg, of Memphis, an expert machinist and gasoline motor builder, who will now be found at our garage on Water street. We would further state that there is not a more competent machinist in Western Kentucky, and with our facilities for first class work, there is nothing in the way of repair work that we cannot handle.

The Bible Is not only tho book of God, It la also the book from Ood. At least this Is the way la which it gives Its own account of Its origin: "All Scripture la given by Inspiration of God," that is to say, is (2 Timothy 2:16). Again, in 2 Petor 1:20-21-, we rvad: "Knowing this Drat, that no prophecy ef the Scriptural of any private Interpretation (or origin, for it seems clear that It Is to the sou h rather than to tho exposition of tho Scripture that reference la here made). For the prophecy came not lu old time by the will of man; but holy men of God spake as they were moved by tho Holy GhosL" Hero are some very clear and definite statements concerning the source of the Scripture. It Is this element that differentiates this book from all other writings. The Biblo is quite oftea referred to nowadays as splendid "literature," Well, the Bible is that, but It is more than that it Is Scripture. Literature la tho letter; Scripture Is the letter Imbreathed by tho holy spirit. Just as la tho creation of man we learn that man became a living soul when that frame of dust, as it lay oa the ground, became inbreathed by the spirit of life from God. Man is dust Inbreathed by Deity; and if you take the spirit of life from man. he returns to dust. So Is it with the Bible; It is the letter, hut it is the letter Inbreathed by God's spirit that makes that letter Scripture. And when you rob the Bible of ita Inspiration you have nothing but mere literature left you have bo Scripture. Tho message of the Dlble is a religious message Its aim and purpose Is to bring man, who has beea estranged from Ood by reason of sin, back to the Owl from whom be baa beea estranged. The Scriptures, which are given by Inspiration of God, aro for the. man of Ood. that he may be Instructed ia righteousness; mark you, in righteousness, not in science, or art, or poetry, or history, important as those things aro in themselves.

Lest, Proprietor. t-Law The Dlble Is tho Dook of God and religion. There aro other books, wo are told, that reveal God to ua besides tho Dlble; e. k, the book of nature, and the book of provldenoe. We admit that nature reveals God to us. That the heavens declare tho glory of God, and the Armament ahows his handiwork, ,we do not for a moment deny. Na0BBBB?t3kinBV ture is vocal with theology. Nor would we think of contradicting tho statement that God manifests himself through history and providence. Victor Hugo said: "Waterloo waa God." I3y that ho meant that God showed his hand In that great war and turned the stream of civilization Into another channel. Tbo history of all nations is abundanUy replete with marked Inter ferenocs of God. Promotion coaeth neither from the east nor from the west It Is God who aettcth up one nation, and putteth down another. The knowledge of God that eoaaes to us from these sources, however, is not sufficient to fully saUsfy the human heart. Nature tells us of God, but does not adequately describe him to us. We might infer from the manifestations In history and providence that God la a great force of power, but such a definition of God by no means satisfies humanity. Wo need some other and deeper vision of God. We need to know something about his person, nature and attributes; his relaUons with his creatures; what things are pleasing and what displeasing to him; what aro his ethical, moral and spiritual standards. To these questions not nature, nor history, nor yet providence affords an answer. Nature may show the head and wisdom of God, and provldeace and history the hand and power of God. but we need a revelation such as we have la the Bible to reveal to us the heart and the grace of our God. Sometimes the Blblo la compared with other sacred books Bibles of other religions; the Koran, the Vedas, etc Thpre can be bo real comparison. The Bible Is not to be put oa the same plane as these books. None of them claims for Itself what the Bible claims for Itself; nor did any one of their authors claim for himself what Jesus Christ, and the Inspired writers of the Bible claim for themselves. The Christian must be very careful in the matter of comparing his Bible with other sacred books. Such comparison is attended with grave danger. There Is practically no difference, so far as the disastrous effects of such comparisons are concerned, whether you drag the Bible down to the level of these Material AT THE LOWEST PRICES We have a car load of CEDAR POSTS See us when you need anything. ephones.
