1. On tho Mountain, tt. 2 6. Peter's
confession li conneetod closely with
the lesson for today. There Is no rec
ord of the Intervening "six days." We
are left to surmlso what of fear and
perplexity Oiled tho mlndi of the dls
clplci after listening to tho words of
Jesus found In Mark 8:34 and 9:1.
Theie words must certainly hare
filled them with doubt and dismay.
Aa If to meet this condition of mind
Jesus takes Peter, James and John,
were also prosent In the home of
Walrus, and later went with blm Into

Moses tho lawgiver and Elijah tho ,
great reform prophet. What a com
mentary aa to tho Interest of hoaven
In a dying Messiah and In the glory
of that death.
Wo need to read Paul's Inspired
words (Phil. 2:0,7) In this connec
tion, ilo who thought It not a prlte
to bo grasped after to be oqual with
God. yet took upon himself tho form
of a slavo and was mado In tho habit men explained tho value and econo

pane -ror no wist not wnai to say
(v. 6). Mark nlono records theso I ,
words, and Mark largely received his ,
gospel from Peter.
Three Heavenly Voices Heard.
Wo have only to read 2 Peter, 1:16-'
18 to answer any Question as to this
being a vision In tho modern accept-1
ance of that term. We nro also told ,
mat tno word -vision - round in verso i
or tno lesson can do translated,
"thliiira Bonn." Indeed the dlsclulea
"things seen." Indeed tho disciples
wero "fully awake" (Luko 9:32 R. V.).
Tho question as to how tho disciples
could recognlio Moses and "Elijah,
whom they had never socn. Is not at
all difficult for tho believer. They ap-'
peared "In glory" and when tho glory
was withdrawn thoy saw "no man '
savo Jesus." I
This also servos to help answer tha
question, "Shall wo recognize In glory
thoso whom wo hnvo lost nwkllo?"
Three heavenly voices wero heard.
Jesus' volco In prayer, ltu compan
ions conversing of that great event
yet to bo accomplished (Luko 9:31)
nnd tho volco of God, "TIiIb is my bo
loved (only begotten) Son; hear him."
What matters tho opinions of earth's
greatest lawyers and prophets, or the
suggestions of our dearest friends
Fear fell upon them and thoy fell '
upon their faces In humiliation, but J
w ith tender compassion Jojub said .
soma llkn ft rrhiikc in Voter who hnd I
froely protested against tho sugges-
on of tbo manner of his death.
Jesus transfiguration nnd tho words 1
of his companion, as well as tho conv
mand of the Father, wero a vlndtca
tlon of hla authority and a rovelatton
in advance of tho supromo wonder of
the cross. Arising thoy "saw no man
savo Jesus." It la far better to "see
him" than to seo, hold converse with,
or havo communion with, the great
est of earth, past or present.
S. Tho descent, v. 9:13. As they
deicondcd from tho mountain Jesus
charged them to toll no man. Vory
dlfforont from our modern method.
Rut the need Is clearly shown as wa
read Peter's words (3 Peter, 1:16-21).
Poter places great emphasis upon tho
Importanco of this experience, declar
ing himself as an eyewltnoss of his
"roajosty" aa well as the "honor and
glory." Peter and tho others could
not talk intelligently of this export
ence until after Christ's work waa
"finished" upon Calvary, vindicated at
the tomb and glorified on tho day of
Pentecost. Honco they "kept that
saying with themselves," obeying his
injunction of silence.
The transfiguration is a glorious
fact; It Is a wondrous light upon tho
"scandal of tho cross;" a wonderful
rovolatlon of tho glory which "ha had
beforo tho world;" and It Is a
propbocy of tho glory yet to be re
vealed. It sorved to help tho dis
ciples during thoso days of darkness
and doubt through which thoy wero
about to pass and It has boon an In
spiration to the Christian church
throughout tho subsequent ages. It
is also a most significant warning.
'"This Is- my son, my chosen; bear ye
blm;" and a pronouncement upon his
work and offlco.

of Nov., 1830. In tho year MS, Prin
cipal J, A. R. Rogers taught me my
a, b, c's In tho little old humble cot
tago whero n-iw stands tho district
school In Rerca. Principal Rogers
was not only n good teacher but a
good man. I have known him to
deprive hlrasolf of tho comforts cf
llfo to supply tho wants of his neigh
)ors. I do not know whether Mrs.
Rogers is still living but I want to
pay her this tribute sha was a kind,
Thero Is no placo dearer to my
heart than Rerca, tho spot where 1
was born and raised. Not even Cali
fornia with her snow-peaked moun
tains In summer and her geraniums
blooming In mid-winter can surpass,
In my estimation, tho dark gro-n
mountains that slope off to tho bluo
grass regions of Kentucky. Memory
brings back now thoso sweet scenes
of tho days of my childhood.
Tho Principals of ncrea College
that I can remember were, John (J.
Fee, J. A. R. Rogers, John Hanson,
E. Lincoln and John F. Drlghten.
I romember that Father Fee's mot

"For years I have known the public
men of the State and from many
eligible to be chosen for such service
I have thought of some who have
studied these questions and wbo know
who can be trusted to assist In the
effort to have your counties enjoy
what the law Intended, and what the
presont State Board of Valuation anil
Assessment by Its 1912 assessments
has made possible ot realization. These
men I am not afraid to trust to act In
an advisory capacity In the premises,
they are and have been prominent In
the affairs of the State. I refer to
Governor James D. McCreary, Attorney-General
'ames Garnett, Hon. Can
slus M. Clu., of Bourbon County, and
Hon. James Richardson ot Barren
County. I would like to be honored by
being on that? committee, because of
my Infinite Interest In this matter. I
have drawn a form ot contract which
I shall read and hand to your Secre
tary and submit for your considera
tion. I feel that its fairness will at
once address Itself to your honest In
telligence, and I beg that you return
to your home county and urge upon
the Individual members ot your county

ecuted, so that our forces may be en

"This, of course, only with the un
derstanding that your fiscal court will
want to make any contract at all for ,
special counsel. I have never thought
much of this plan for securing the em
ployment of the needed special coun
sel In these cases because, at best,
when special counsel are employed
and paid, the people bear the expense
and If the counties rather than the
State employ and pay, It Is only taking
money out of the left-hand pocket
Instead of the right the people, In the
end, have to pay all the expense any
way. I turned to this plan only when i
found or there seemed to be no other
way to satisfy the Attorney General
and to get for the people the needed
special counsel. The Attorney General
himself proposed to me the 20 per
cent as a fee to be paid by the coun
ties to Mr. Rich, and said that he would
secure the making of such a contract
with Mr. Rich by five counties, and
named them. When this matter was
first proposed to me I said I would
have nothing to do with the matter
unless there was a clause In the con
tract which would give absolute pro
tectlon to the people to prevent any
lawyer from being paid an excessive
fee for the services rendered. I have
labored for months .and years to bring
about the assessment made In 1912.

A Saddening Picture.
"Behind the scenes there Is a pic
ture that Is saddening to me In con
nection with all this matter. Our
State, the treat State of Kentucky, li
rendered Impotent, because the Gov
ernor, the chief executive of our8taie,
and the Attorney General cannot agree
as to the need of the people. The
Governor Is In favor of additional
counsel, and the Attorney-General says
he has enough, and Is willing to accept
the responsibility of this fight, and
carry on these suits with the forces
he now hai. I. say the responsibility
Is too much to ask him to assume.
"We are fighting a monster, we are
fighting a demon that will resort to
anything and they tried everything
but murder to prevent the board from
making these assessments.
"They have attempted to corrupt
the Board of Valuation and Assess
ment, and they will go further to at
tain their end. If they can, they will
corrupt the courts, as they have don;
ere this. And that Is what I want to
convince , cu of and warn you against.
Protect yourselves and others In theee
cases and have lawyers who will maka
the facts so clear that there can be
but one cou'se open to the courts, and
then they will follow It"
