In yo'ir issue of the 17th of August I no
tictJ an article written by one Fred Lee,
of Carlinville, this county, crilicising ma
in regard to my duty as mine inspector.
Am nearly 50 years old; worked in the
mines all my life, except two years when
I served in the Eighth U. S Cavalry, and
ought to, by this time, know rignt trora
wrong. In reply to Fred Lee, would say
that years ago I adopted and lived up to
the following rules' Don't worry about
what people say of you No matter what
you say or what you do tbe action will be
different id different eyes. Onowill pro
ounce it good, the other evil You can
not please all. Do what you tbink is best
and let results be what they may. If a man
cheats you, cease to deal with bim; It he
slanders you, take care to live so tbat no
body will believe bim. No matter who be
is or bow he misuses you, tbe wisest way
is to let bim alone; now there is nothing
better than this calm, cool and quiet way
of dealing with wrong we meet. Lies un
hindered will die; fires inflamed will burn
oat, and quarrels neglected become as dull
as ibe all but extinct volcano. Tbe sour,
crabbed misanthrope goes snapping and
snarling tbrouRb life, aod at its close

Do the miners of Western Kentucky,
most especially Hopkins County ever
tonder in their minds about ibe grave re
sults that would have followed tbe strict
enforcement of Ibe long and short haul
clause? If so, the only conclusion tbey
can come to, is tbat it meant to those
miners Ibe loss of hundreds of thousands
ot dollars yearly, and ue aro told that
among those ubo were secretly backing up
the full enforcement of this law was one
Wm. Goebel, through bis friend McCbord.

1. "In the seventh month, In the ono
and twentieth day ot tho month, came "tho
word of tho Lord by tho prophet Cagja&t,
saying." Our last lesson said. that tho
enemies of Ood and of tho Jews caused
tho work on tho temple to coneo. till tho
second year of Darius, hut that thon Ood
raised up Ilagfral and Zocharlah to en
counuto tho pooplo to rctmruo tho work
(Ez. Ir, Si; t, 1). It Is also written In
Ez. v, 6, that although tho enemies again
sought to cause- tho work to ccoso tho eyo
ot their Qod was upon tho Jews, and this
tlmo IIo did not sutler tho cnomlcs to tri
umph. In this short prophecy of 88 Torsos
tho expressions, Thus salth tho Lord, or
Tbo word of tho Lord came, or their
equivalent, aro found 5 times, marvelous
ly emphasizing tho truth that this is all
tho Lord's doing.
S. "Speak now to Zoruhbabel, tho son
ot Shcnltlol, governor of Judab. and to
Joshua, tho son ot Josodach, tho high
priest, and to tho rcslduo of the people,
saying." It was not for Haggal to ask,
How will thoyrocelvo ltf or, What will they
think ot mor IIo had only to preach tho
preaching that Ood bado him (Jonah 111, 9)
and trust Qod, who gavo him tho mossago
to manago Ills own affairs. It would bo
well for all preachers to act thus: Itccolvo
tholmessago i from God, deliver it in Ills
name-In tho power of tho Spirit and bo
sura thatUtWlll not return to film void,
hut accomplish Ills pleasure and prosper
in that whereto Ha sends it (Isa.lv, 11).
This would givo groat quietness in service
becauso ot confidence- in Qod (Isa. zxz, IS;
8. "Who is loft among yoa that saw
this houso In her first glory and bow do yo
soo It now? Is It not iniyour eyes In com
parison of it as nothing?" Tho contrast
between the first tomplo and tho present
condition of things was so groat that tho
olders who had soon tho flrtt houso could
not refrain from weeping (Ex. ill, IB,
18). Things did look very discouraging,
and when wo look only nt what out eyes
sco wo will bo Tory opt to bo cither over
much puffed up or cast down. It is only
as wo sco Qod nlono and bcllovo His word,
regardless of feelings or circumstances,
that wo can over bo established and not
discouraged (II Chron. zz, SO; Isa. Tit, 0;
Rom. It, 1931).
4. "Yet now bo strong O Zerubbabol,
salth tho Lord, and bo strong, O Joshua,
son of Josedoch, tho high priest, and bo
strong all yo pooplo of tho land, salth tho
Lord, and work, for I am with you, salth
tho Lord of Hosts." A most remarkablo
verso truly I Thrco times "salth tho Lord' '
and thrco times "bo strong," becauso of
tho Lord's presence Tho "yet" with
which tho verso begins takes us to Hah.
11), 17, 18, whero wo hear tho prophet say
ing, Though vines, ollvoe, figs, flocks and
herds all fall, yet I will rejoice In tho
Lord; or to Fs. lxzlll, S3, S3, where tho
writer, though despising himself becauso
ho felt llko a poor, Ignorant beast, sold,
Nevertheless, I am continually with Thee;
Thon host holdcn mo by my right hand.
6. "According to tho word that I cove
nanted with you when yo camo out of
Egypt, so My Spirit rcmalnoth among
you; fear yonot." Not our faithfulness,
but His, Is tho only ground of comfort.
Ho nblJoth faithful, IIo -cannot deny Him
self (II Tim. ii, 13). David, In his last
hours, found no comfort in himself or In
his life which ho had lived, but said, Yet
hath Ho mado with mo an OTcrlastlng
covenant ordered in all things and sure
for this is all my solvation and olltmy de
sire (II Sam. xxltl, 6). Tho lovo of tho
Spirit (Rom. iv, 80) is ono of our greatest
comforts, though not spoken of e much
as tbe lovo ot tho Father or tho Son.
There Is boundless comfort In our Lord's
assurance, "Becauso I llvo yo shall live
also" (John xlv, 10), assuring ns that
however weak and unworthy in ourselves
Ho is our life, His faithfulness our
0. "For thus salth tbo Lord of Hosts,
Yet once, it is n Uttlo while, and I will
shako tho heavens, and tho earth, and tho
sea, and the dry land." In verso 91 this
shaking is again montloned. From Joel
111, 10, and Ilcb. ill, SO, and their contexts
wo conclude that whatever gcrmlnaut ac
complishments theso words may already
have had tho fulfillment of them lsyot fu
ture and .associated with tho day of tho
Lord and tbo coming of Christ In glory.
I think It probablo that the "Uttlo whllo"
of this verso was that which Ho referred
to in John xvi, 10-10, bnt ono will say
bow could IIo say a little whllo or quickly
(Rev. xxll, 7, IS, 20) when Ho knew it
would bo perhaps 9,000 years or more?
According to II Pot. ill, 8, our Lord has
not been gono two days yet, and if Ho
comos back on tbo third day that will In
deed bo quickly.
7. "And I will shako all nations, and
tho dcslro of all nations shall como, and I
will fill this houso with glory, salth tho
Lord of Hosts. " We know that our Lord
camo to tho tomplo and taught In tbo tern
pla whon Ho was hero in humiliation, and
tho disciples (at least three of them) behold
His glory (John 1, 14), but tho tomplo was
not filled with glory, neither did He shake
all nations. But In tho day of tho Lord's
vengeance and tho tlmo of rooompenso for
tho controversy of ZlonHls indignation
shall bo upon all nations (Isa, xxxlr, 9, 8).'
8. "Tho-sllvcr is mine, and tho gold.ls
rolno, salth tho Lord of Hosts." They
wero not therefore to bo perplexed about
tho necessary funds, for Ho who owns tho
sliver and tho gold had ordered the work
to bo dono, and Ho would provldo. Even
Darius had boon led to decreo that ot tho
king's goods expenses should bo given
unto theso men and of bullocks, rams,
lambs, wheat, salt, wlno and oil, that
which they havo need ot day by day with
out fall (Ezra vi, 8, 0). If our first dcslro
Is always tho kingdom of God and His
righteousness, wo may bo suro that all tho
necessary funds and wherewithal for His
work will certainly bo forthcoming as
0. "Tbo glory of this latter houso shall
bo greater than of tho former, salth tho
Lord of Hosts, and In thlsplacowlll I give
peace, salth tho Lord of Hosts." Thotem
plo ot Solomon was filled with tbo glory of
tho Lord, but wo do not road' that this
tomplo of tho restoration was, or Herod's
temple, though to tbo latter Christ came
in humiliation and on two occasions
cleansed It, but tho templo that is yet to
bo shall see His glory, and Jerusalem shall
bo called jenovan-snammab, tbo Jxuxl is
there (Ezek. xllil, 9-7; xlvlll, 86). Christ
Is nowttho pcaco of every believer (Eph. il,
14; Rom. y, 1), but whon Ho shall sit
upon tho throne of David of tho lneroaso
of His government and peace there shall
bo no end (Isa. lx, a, 7).

Timothy aa an early endeavorer. lie
was born at Lystra or Derbe. Bis fa
ther waa a Greek ond probably died
when Timothy was a babe. Hia mother
was a Jewess named Eunice, and her
mother was named Lois. The care and
training of Timothy devolved upon his
mother and grandmother. Bis training
was thereforo decidedly Jewish when
Fanl and Barnnbas wero in Lycaonia
(Acts ziv, 0). Timothy and his moth
er received the gospel with "unfeigned
faith." Seven years later, when Fanl
returned and Timothy had grown to
yonng manhood, ho was set apart to tbe
work of an evangelist. Bo then becamo
a companion and colaborer with Fanl
and was signally consecrated und devot
ed. Later be was stationed at Gphesas
to check the heresies and licentiousness
of tho Epheaian church. Tradition says
that Jbe continued here as pastor of the
church of Ephesus and died a martyr's
death under Domltian or Kerva.
In what did Tlmotby resemble a Jun
1. Timothy's religious training be
gan ia his childhood. That Timothy
might stand steadfast in tbe faith amid
the heresies of Ephesus Paul reminded
him tbat "from a babe thou hast known
tbo Holy Scriptures, which aro able to
make thee wisa unto salvation, through
faith which is in Christ Jesus." Tho
Junior Endeavorer begins early to be ro
ligiously trained and taught, and the
Holy Scriptures should be hia principal
religious textbook. Bo should begin
early to commit Qod'a word to memory.
2. Timothy aa an early Endeavorer
had good teachers. Fanl speaks of those
of whom Timothy had learned his reli
gious truths. Whether tbe apostle refers
to tho Holy Spirit, to himself or Tim
othy's mother and grandmother is a
matter of difference of opinion. Bat
Timothy was taught by all. The Holy
Ghost taught him, Paul taught him,
and his dear ones taught him. They
understood what they taugbt and whom
they taught They knew tbe Holy Scrip
tures and understood child life, which
every successful teacher of children
must do. They taught by example aa
well as precept. Paul, Eunice and Lois
exemplified to Timothy tho Scriptural
truths which tbey taught him No one
should preaumo to train children unless
he knows what no teaches, whom ne
teaches. and exemplifies in his own lifo
tbat which he teaches.
8. Timothy was a working Endeavor
er. Ho soon developed evangelistic talent
and was placed on that committoo and
was a great success as a missionary
and an evangelist. Juniors must work
as well as bo tanght.
4. Timothy's life was molded and de
termined by the early training he re
ceived. Junior work is a fallnro unless
it produces character. A Christian char
acter should be tbo aim of all Junior
work, and Christ should be the great
model, constantly held np beforo all En

Preposterous Claims of the Goebel
Candidate For Superintendent of
Public Instruction Place lllm Iu u
Ridiculous Position Light Thrown
Upon Ills Public Record.
(Louisville Commercial, Aug. 3.)
Tbo Courier-Journal, In its Issue- ot
Aug. 2C, says, under flaming headlines,
that the nominee ot the Music hall
convention for superintendent of pub
lic Instruction baa made a thorough
study of the school book question and
finds that "no state In the Union has
ever been able to secure cheaper text
books without first filing a maximum
price, Just aa the China school book
bill," and that he will render the
speakers of tho Qoebel ticket yeoman
service In furnishing them Informa
tion to convince the people of the stato
that It is to that measure that they
must look for relief from tbe book
In respect to this, a Republican edu
cator, who bas given tho matter much
Judging from his Mt. Sterling
speech, Mr. (loebel Is sadly In need of
some one who has given this subject
a "thorough study" to coach bim some
what on the annual cost of the state's
text-books. Mr. McChesney may at
once bring his skill as a coacher and
hie profound knowledge ot this subject
to play In an effort to persuade tho
distinguished head ot bis ticket that
the latter uses his figures too reck
lessly In stating the amount be expects
to savo the children 'of the state by the
Inauguration of the Chlnn system.
True, a small percentage of Ken
tucky's voters, even In this day of
schools and newspapers, leave others
to do their thinking, and readily drink
In the assertions of the most blatant
demagogue. It his statements accord
with their preconceived Idea of things
and are not altogether too preposter
ous. But Mr. McChesney will tell Mr.
Goebel that the most Ignorant of these
can not be led to believe that the Chlnn
bill enacted into a law would save the
people ot tbe state $700,000 annually,
and tbat such glaring exaggerations
tend to discredit his every assertion,
even with tho Ignorant, and to bring
him Into contempt with the Intelligent.
If faithful to bis dudII. Mr. McChes
ney, in sharing bis profound knowl
edge of this subject with Mr. Ooebel,
will insist that the saving under the
Chlnn plan as compared with the pres
ent method of supplying books could
not exceed 2B per cent, on an average,
of tbe latter price, and tbat the yearly
ounay tor scnooi dooks must, there
fore, reach $2,800,000 In order to meet
his startling figures. Democratic ora
tors may be permitted to double, but
not to roako their estimates 18 to 20
times too great.
However, one is neither Interested
In tho thoroughness of Mr. McChes
ney's knowledge of this subject, nor
In his ability to coach; but, in view
ot the facts, as one: finds them, ono
deems it pertinent to Inquire whether
ho has but recently become an expert
along this line. He was evidently not
posted as to tho prices of text-books
on Aug. 8, 1890, when, as county super
intendent of Livingston county, hq
mado his last adoption of books for
uso In his schools for n term of five
years; or ho has since u. jn converted
to the Idea that "cheapness" Is the
chief or only element worthy of con
sideration in tho selection of text
books. McChesney's OfTlclul List.

In 1896, and every book la published

II. V. M'CHESNEY.
MARTHA C. GRAbHMAN,
J. O. RUTTER,
I hereby certify tbat the abovo Is a
truo copy of the official adoption of
text-books for Livingston county, as
shown by the records ot my office.
H. V. M'CHESNEY,
At tho tlmo that adoption was
mode (he continued), Mr. McChesney
seems not to have been aware that any
Subllshnr other than the "American
ook Trust," as his associates call the
company from whoso list he adopted
every book named for use In bis
schools, was eligible to sell books In
Kentucky. The records of his office
should havo shown, nevertheless, that
several other publishers had bonds to
file with him, giving a list of their
books, guaranteeing retail prices.
Why This Change of Base?
Was he then ono ot that large class
of teachers and county superintend
ents whom Congressman Wheeler sees
fit to denounce as corrupt and mercen
ary; In fact, as being on tbe payrolls
or tne greeuy dook trusts, simply be
causo they refuse to dishonor their
professions and official positions by a
hypocritical Indorsement of an abom
tnablo subterfuge labelled "cheaper"
text-books? However this may be, Is
It not truo that tho Music ball nomi
nee's discovery that he had been duped
Into fastening on bis people an infam
ous contract for a term of five years
by a gigantic and soulless "trust,"
whoso agonts, Mr. Wheeler informs
ono, go up and down the state seeking
to corrupt tho young by making bribe
takers of their teachers and school
officers, was coincident with tne Incep
tion of his candidacy?
But It one Is to take the gentleman
seriously In. this matter, may ono not
ask what oponed his eyes to the enorm
ity of the Injustice perpetrated on the
children under bis supervision by his
adoption, which was made under a
Democratic law, and which gives a
complete monopoly ot the school book
trade of Llvlngaum county to the very
company he and his associates now
essay to execrate? Is one to charge
this change of front, this walling over
the oppression ot the dear masses, a
condition made possible, It It exists
outside of tbe Imagination of tbe vote
hunter, by a law for which his own
party Is responsible to tbo fact, that
school books, at retail, cost tbo chil
dren of his county last year 9765.40.
less than 20 cents for each of tbe 3,800
pupil children In his census repoit?
If Mr. McChesney was of tho opinion
three years ago that "cheapness" was
the only thing to be taken Into ac
count In selecting school books, why
did he not. In Justice to his people,
narao Butler's Speller, First, Sccobd,
Third. Fourth and Fifth Readers, at 12,
House, Broadway, Paducah,
12, Z3, S3, 48 and 67 cents, respec
tively, Instead of forcing bis people to
buy books ot like grades from the
"American Book Trust" at 17, 17, 30,
42, CO and 73 cents, respectively?
It is equally difficult to understand,
from his standpoint, why he selected
Holbrook's Orammar from tho
"trust'" list at 66 cents, when various
others were offered ranging In prlco
a low as 60 cents. Why did be adopt
a certain geography at $1.20, when the
asms puDiisners onerea another at
$1-08. other companies listing numbers
of theirs much lower? Why did ho
give this "trust" $1 for Waddy's Com
position and Rhetoric, when books
with the same name could be had from
other companies at 10 to CO per cent
less? Why did he fasten Steelo's
Physiology, a book published by tho
sarao company, on his people at $1
per copy, when text-books on that sub
ject can bo bad as low as 45 cents each
from other companies? Why did be
mako like selections, regardless of
prlco, on writing, civil government
and other branches, from the Ameri
can Book company, If not on the Idea
tbat tho difference In quality Justified
the extra cost?
Under these circumstances, should
It be a matter of surprise or wonder
tbat the fair-minded and Intelligent
citizenship of tbe state looks with sus
picion and contempt on such bold ex
aggerations and pompous announce
ments? It these Inconsistencies, not
to say absurdities, can bo overcome by
the billingsgate of a thousand Wheel
ers In their attempt to coerce the com
monwealth's large army of conscien
tious teachers and school officers Into
acquiescence whllo they foist this
measure on tbe schools, much less Into
giving active support to It. tbe cour

Harvey McCtitchen is quoted by
the Louisville Times as saying that
Goebel will carry this county by
800 majority. Harvey is whistling
to keep his courage up. As a mat

not carry this county by 800 ma
jority, but if he carries the county
at all, it will be only by a scratch,
and nobody ought to know this
better than Mr. McCutchen. Rus
