.This, the Unitarians deny. Of course
they have man) wuys of wriggliuir
in and out, explaining and hairsplitting,
but they are a curse and blight
to any community in which they exist
in sumciont numbers to give them
influence. The Christian church docs
not, cannot rcoonizo them or fellowship
them as Christians, I bclioto it
would bo a great national sin, and

Header of the Press of this county
will no doubt remombcr his visit to
Marion during the last State campaign
at which time he made a speech on
bohalf of the Democratic candidates,
which was considered by those who
heard it one ol the fairest, most
logical, and best speeches delivered
in this county during the campaign.
If Mr. Jennings should be elected as
Commonwealth Attorney of this
we believe the interests of the
Commonwealth will bo ably represented
-and the voters of the district
will hare no cause to regret their
We do not tcnow whothor Mr.
Grayot will again bo a candidate but
if ho should lie, wc trust our readers
will not construe this as any reflection
upon him or his candidacy.
His long and able is sufficient
ovidenoo ol the w.ill merited confi
dence tho voters of this district have
in him. And if ho should bo a can-
didato for tho nomination again, this
I Ditrict will be exceptionally

but thoir judgoment oatno sure and
soon. Will this generation repeat
the blind folly of tbo Jews'' If o,
we must prepare to reap a harvest
whioh i -tire to ripen in due time.
Not Ioug ago, the Senate of tho V.
S. ignored Christ a teaching that
".No man oometh to the Father but
by me, "and elected a Uuituiian chaplain
to pray for thctn to mouk God.
Hut no ono eoemed to care, It
look as il thi country ha become to
to bo aroused to a stato of
rightotiMioas indignation. Diroctly
afterward, one man just out of tho
Senate was shot to death by the woman
he had dobauchod and deserted,
another was sent to prison for dishonesty,
another died in time to keep
out of another was in a
court aud mixed up in a most
disgusting scandal. This same
failed to break the power of tho
tobacco trust, and stands back of tho
whiskey power shipping its intoxicants
into prohibitation states and
rones, and thus the govcrment legalizes
ana protects crime.
It is high time for ministers of tho
gospol to cry aloud for Christian
men to think, for patriots to arouse
thomsclvos. If we coutintio to sow
te the wind, as suro as God is true
jqd His word is true, wo, will reap
tho whirlwind. We arc approaching
a crisis in our history, ol such vital

generally speaking about the county
paper is usually the one who owes

by tho editor for nonpayment

then, to the editors friends and he
has a few thank goodness, to hear
the big dead beats stand around and
knock on the paper because it's ''got
them down so fine." Some men
have money to spend for whiskey,

of the other claims until after .the
Sheriff sends in taxes collected which
will not be oarlicr thap November.
The schools are entitled to their
money because we havo been borrowing
largely from the school fund to
meet general expenses. If wc had
don this there would be plenty
in the school fund to meet this pay-
ment. The total expenses for rup
ning the Stato in its different branches
has been more each year for the
last number of years than the income
of the taxes and all other sources,
aud why our Legislature knowing
this failed to provide means to meet
all demands and was so lavish in

I do not understand.

The many friends of Mr. and Mrs.

all grieved very much, when thoy
heard of the accidental fall which
crippled thoir beautiful little ten
year old girl, Mildred. It seems
that by slipping on the floor Vhe dislocated
her hip joint and Was unable
to walk. They had hopeB of her
getting better, and did every thing
local medical skill coui suggest
but all to no avail. Mrs. Hummer'
villo, as a last resort, took her to the
osteopathic institute at Franklin,

she is gradually improving.
