EVANGELIST IS NOW PREACHING 0IHartford HeraldRev George O Barnes the noted itinerant evan gelist has been preaching in Hart ford Ky to good crowds the past week Rev Barnes is now in his 78th year yet he seems hale and hearty He has been preaching fifty years He is the son ofIPresbyterian minister and as a preacher has gained a national reputation which spread to other con tinents For twenty years he preachedwhat he termed the com mono wellknown doctrine of the Presbyterian church Then a change came over him and for the past thirty years he has been preaching a doctrine which isI strange to many people but says he is able to substantiate by the scriptures It is a creed which mvstefies many For instance he holds that there are three hells of future punishment viz The old fashioned Hales Gehenna where many profesied Christians will go for a stason aad Tiu a us the temporary abode of the fallen an gels Rev Barnes repudiates thee popular theory that the devil is a fallen angel He quotes scripture which says that the devil was not only a liar from the beginning but a murderer and therefore he could never have been an angel of light Rev Barnes does not helieve in eternal punishment His idea is that souls will punished a length of time com mensurate with the sins they have committed and according to their standing before God At the last grand wind up the devil will be annihilatedand the imprisoned souls turned loose This he says is possible from the fact that the devil is not immortal He says Christ went to hell and tasted of personifrom the fact that Christ took the part ot a substitute for man inI every sense of the word oftsoul and the spirit The body and the soul he says are mortal while GodIattributingIn Christs time he says this prac lice was reversedattributing to the devil the works of Godbut wnyIGod never afflicted or punished auybodythat all physical ills or misfortunes come at the hands of powerIof the salient points of his strange creed Rev Barnes set out about two years ago to preach in every county seat in Kentucky He says he felt called of God to do this in his native State This is his 96th county and he has 23 county seats yet to make He travels

HOMK MARKETThere has long since been felt the need of a home market for the different kinds of stock which our farmers have for What we mean by a home market such as there is at Richmond Lancaster Stanford and eth er tows where on county court days every farmer who has a good horse a few mules some cattle hogs ttc takes them into the town and there finds a buyer We do not mean to say that the stocV sales of Rockcastle under such cir cumstances would be as extensive as those of the Blue grass towns but we do mean to say that if the farmers on county court days would bring their stock to town and let the stock dealers of the joining counties Know that all the marketable stuff of the county would be exhibited at that time there would always be buyers on justdgood as could be had at any of oudr stock are taken to be sold There are many reasons why it is to the advantage of our farmers to hav such a home market and dur irl g the last week there hat been quite a number of farmers and some several who are dealing to a limited extent in stock expressed a willingness in fact a very earnest desire 10 try to establish such a market This is a matter left theyeare the ones who have such thing to sell But some one says how will this benefit We can alwa fild a buyer somewhere The time to sell a thing is when it is ready for the market and under alofways a r time you are ready to sell But says another it is a very easy matter to take what we have over tt Richmond Lancaster or some oth er point and there get the best market prices With a good estab lished home market the price would be just as good at home as some other places besides then would be eliminated the cost ot transporting this stock twenty 01 thirty miles the wary and fatigue itof the trip often times rendering stock less marketable We earnestly ask our farmers to join in the move and we will guarani the effort to be crowned with success nrrrnrrlrrr urrru rr + + CORRECTION I noticed in your issue of the 17 Inst

SUNNY SOUTH Tampa Fla Feb 20 1905 Dear Editor I have just received a copy of the dear old SIGNAL how dear t never knew until now I am sure never fully appreciated your efforts as an editor before 1 have long known that the Signal reached many distant States but never realized how many absent hearts were made glad by its appearance and the news from home sweet home Although it may be of little interest to you I am sure many of your readers will be glad to know something of this socalled bright sunny South Truly it is a Land of Flowers as Ponce DeLeon called it but will tell you one or two days since I have been in Florida an overcoat looked better to me han a boquet I suppose to many readers of the Signal our oldest city will be the most interesting thing in Florida St Augustine is smaller than most people think the native habita ion being only about four thous ind people It is situated on a beautiful bay just five miles from the ocean The older part of the city was once upon an island but in later years the channel separating it from the main land has been filled in and here is built the most beautiful part of the city Here is situated the famous hotel Ponce de Leon the most magnificent as ell as the costliest hotel in the South It covers an area of two icres and was built at a cost of hree million livehundred thousand collars In the old part of the city the streets are very narrow and Treas ury street the narrowest in StC Augustine is not more than seven feet wide St George street theI main business street of town is scarcely wide enough to allow two placeshasthe newer part of the city is more like our northern towns broad streets nice sidewalks and so on The streets are swept daily and are TheeMarion still stands as a monuments of the architecture of olden times Fort Marion was built more than twohundred years ago by the Spanish It is now in the care o WasIlean war aj a place of confinement for prisoners of war Taking it all in all St Augustine is the beautiful place imaginable with it many magnificent struct mes such as the hotels Poncedo Leon Al cazar Co donia Magrolia etc with their beautiful ours in which rears the large spreading live oak the stately the magnolia with its mass of dark green foliage and other more numerous and les notable Southern shrubs makes i truly a place where flowers bloom children play and people live merely existingAfter w came up the beautiful St Johns river and southwest through the greatest orange producing section of Florida Many were the beau tiful groves we passed but were de prived of the pleasure of seeing much of the golden fruit on the recentfreezegreat was the loss that I have seen eethousandsand thousands of bushels oranges and grape fruit going to ruin in one grove yet many say it will in the end be of great use to orange growers as it has cleared the trees of all the old foliage anaI will give them a fresh start for the jspring crop Now dear readers with a brief description of Tampa I willIring off for fear this will reach the waste basket ere it appears in f prinLla town twenty f people situated on the of the same name and has a splendid outlet to the Gulf of Mex i comIingJ ers to all United States ports as well as Cuba Tampa Bay Hotel just across the river from Tampa 1 a magnificent structure and sec 9 nd only to the PoncedeLeou in J cost Now I fear I have already written more than our editor will a care to give space for but there are still many things of interest in the South to me at least that I would to describe but after all Flori with all its orange groves its grand hotels its palmetto and its faterKentucky in the heart of a true g Kentuckian for imbedded deep in that heart of hearts is a l memory of Home Sweet Home With best wishes for the editor as well as all the readers of the Signal I am E R GENTRY f HOW LEW WALLACE BE CAME CHRISTIAN WHILE WRITING STORY OF BEN HUR Lew Companion The very beginning of the bookies in a quotation from St Math ew inIHerod the King behold there came wise men from the East to Jerusalem saying Where is He that is born Kiug of the Jew Foi we have seen his star in the East and are come to worship HimFar back as memory goes of things read by or to me those lines took a hold on my imagination be IIScriptures In 1875 the date given from best recollectionwhen I was get ting over the restlessness due to years of service in the War of the Rebellion it occurred to me to write the which I had Iiwiseillustrations and might be acceptable to one of the magazines Well I finished the proposed se rial and deposited it in my desk waiting for a season of courage which to open communication inI the Harpers In the time of writing down to the hour I laid the manuscript by as said never once did the possibill ity of a formal book occur It is not possible to fix the hour and place of the first thought of book precisely enough that it 31 a night in 76 I had been listen ing to a discussion which involved such elemental points as God heaven life hereafter Jesus Christ and His divinity Trudging on in the dark alone except as ones thoughts may be company goodor bad a sense of the importance of the theme struck me for the first time with a force both singular and presistent My ignorance of it was painfully a spot of deeper darkness in the I darkness I was ashamed of my self and make haste now to de clare that the mortification of pride I then endured or it be preferred the punishment of spirit ended in a resolution to study the whole mat ter if only for the gratification there might be tin having convictions of one kind or other Forthwith a number of practical suggestions assailed me How should I conduct the study Delve into theology I shuddered The theology of the professors had al ways seemed to me an indefinitely deep pit filed with the bones 01I unprofitable speculations There were the sermons and com mentaries The very thought of them overwhelmed me with an idea of the shortness of life No I would read the Bible and the four Gospels and rely on myself A ofspractice attains a pecu liar in its mental Muscularity so to speakNext the subject was considered dry Was there no way of making it the least bit light or savory No incidental employment or task which would give it the color of compellingtthrough keep me in terested Then it came Of the more than five years given occuresearch and investigation consumed most of the appropriate time The name Ben Hur was epos en because it is biblical and spelled printed and pronouncedI As this article is in the nature of confessions here is one which the readers of the Youths Companion may excuse and at the same rime accept as a fitting conclusion Long before was through with my book I became a believer in God an Christ- I r waars aati rsa
