and Toilet Articles I T J BALLARD the DOWIEISM r The people of Anderson county have always been ling to listen to the word of God as delivered by the Rev Geo O Barnes who has for some time been conducting services at the Courthouse There was a time when the coming of The Great Barnes was her aided throughout the county and our citizens would flock to town to hear him deliver in his master manner the wel come message Upon one occasion he drew immense crowds made up of lifcibelieved that by annointing them he could relieve their CtJrcat sufferings Again he cattle to us not annointing but receiving confessions and blessing and the people lievedr I in him and followed him rw Later he visited us but used neither the annointing nor the opan confessions Now he K conies to us as a Dowieite preaching the doctrine of John tAlcxandcr Dowie of Zion 1 CityIFew of our people under stand the teachings of Dowie acquaintrto briefly explain John Alexander Dowie Ics11 singer of the Convent Spirit of Elijah the as he calls himself was born fiftyJive years ago in Edinburgh of Scotch parents Re ceiving his education he be came a minister ot the gospel After spending much time in his home country and Austra lia he came to this country OUR DRUGS Druggist ten years ago and settled in Chicago He pitched his tent near the entrance to the Worlds Fair grounds and like Boardman Simpson and Mrs Mix who he followed attracted more than ordinary attention as a faith curer and healer Dowie possessed more avcraJcItalker of his class that may be found talking nightly on State or Monroe streets in Chicago and from the hut as his tent was called he entered Music Hall and finally the great Auditorium with a scat ing capacity of thousands With his knowledge of minis terial work Dowie soon had many ministers with him and later well organized bands of workers were going here and there receiving contributions and converts for him Money was soon plentiful and a large tabernacle was built Real estate was purchased along Michigan avenue regardless of price and soon there was fitted up a large publishing house that much printing matter could be published and spread broadcast over the land Funds continued to come in and finally a bank was opened with John Alexander Dowie as President Board of Directors and the whole cheese Stores were opened and later hospitals for the sick When the latter was started Dowies troubles started for during one year he was arrested hundreds of times He finally left Chi cago and purchased 6000 acres of the finest land in Illi nois only forty miles north of the the city at a cost of more than a million and a half dol lars To buy this land he took the money from his flock and is now generously scllinJIit back to them in town his own prices land he has built what he calls storcslhishis hospitals have been moved there and are personally conducted and looked after by John Alexander Dowie overseer and sole owner Every Dowieite however ployed must give ten percent of his earnings toward the sup of Dowie and Zion The lead er claims to have a following ofmore than one hundred thousand and this being true it is easily seen how million dollar real estate purchases can be made Unless these contributions are made no prayers will be offered for the salvation of the member or restoring of health Much money is sent to Dowie by peo ple out of the city asking that he pray for them When such a letter is received Dowie goes to what he calls his clock pray ing machine and presses the button and out drops a card which reads You were prayed for at 235 P M which is at once sent to the sender of the money General prayers which are calculated to restore health are talked by him into a pho nograph and the records are then sold for a good price to his followers Being greatly conceited he has had made hundreds of pictures of him self scme of which are HfcI size and he sells then for nice sums to his believers Zion believes that Dowie is a Prophet but Chicago and the West believe that he is the greatest fakir that ever came before the American people In the West his appearance or that of one of his followers in pub lic is the signal for riot and disorder At Evanston Ill Hammond Ind Mansfield Ohio and hundreds of other places they have been run out of town with eggs and decayed fruits We dislike to devote so much of our space to such a matter but believe that what we have said and know to be true will give you some idea of Dowie ism of which Bro Barnes claims to be a convert IIt Looked Like a Shame ItoBurn IttLast week our genial

COUNTY NEWS While we had about trade up our minds regarding the handling of county news we with held ouropinion until courtday that we Wright talk with the people of the county and get their opinions regarding the matter On that day we talked with people from all parts of the county and were glad to learn that our views of county news well pleased them and we are now ready to explain to all First we will say with emphasis that IT is and will ever be strictly county paper Xo paper has ever made the light for that which is to the interest of the county as IT has during its short life and just so long as we go to press we will continue to make light for what ve think is due the people of the county We will also have correspondents in every locality to send in each week all news of importance What we mean by news of im portance is as follows stock sales real estate sales crop sales marriages births per sonals and other things of terest When we say personals of interest we mean this should any of our citizens leave home on business of pleasure going to another county or state we look upon it as a personal of interest but where some citizen simply takes din ner on Sunday with a neighbor or attends church a few stiles away we do not think it worthy of being classed as news of pcoplcI I Asked THURMAN How I It Was He Sold So Much mind as we as to what is and what is not county news Were we to report all such happenings here in town each week it would take a paper live times the size of IT to hold them We have arranged with several in different parts of the county to write for us but are yet in want of many snore and would be glad to hear from all who feel an interest in our paper and their county Improve the Grounds What is the matter with the grounds around the public school building Too bare void of shade trees or ornaments of any kind these grounds con stitute a veritable eyesore True the building itself is no great shakes and would hardly be pointed out as a genuine model of the skill of a finished architect But the Board of Trustees could at least beautify the grounds by setting a few trees The expense would be light and the improved pearance would richly repay the cost of the trees Mr M C Champion was the only Anderson county man to attend the Good Roads vention at Lexington last week lie reports that much good was done to promote interests of the roads of the State Lawrenceburg has another paper It has taken an original name calling itself IT It is neatly printed and newsy and the Times wishes it smooth sailing on the troubled sea Georgetown Times You
