WHY HE WAS "LOST."
A prominent lawyer was talk
ing to us the other day about the
better side of life, and what he
said only confirmed our opinion
more that if h.vpocrit1 could be
kept out of tin1 church, more real
christian names miht be found
on the church resistor. Many
lnu christian:; arc not church
members, because they know
too well the hypocracy and wick
edness of some who ill e in the
church and with whom they
must asspeiate. so they prefer to
remain out and choose their as
It was. in Carutliersville. a fewi
years ago, and two brother law
yers seemed to be in the lead.
The head man called upon broth
er to lead in praver, and
he readily responded. He pro-!
ceeded in great eloquence, which
could only disgust any one who'
knew his practical life as this
lawyer knew it. The prayer fin
ished, the first lawyer began to
tlop his hands and sing, that good
old hymn: "I Am so Glad Our
Father in Heaven Tells of His
Love in the Boole He has Given."
The third lawyer who happen
ed to be passing the church that
beautiful spring Sunday morn
ing, and just dropped in, the first
time in many years, was so filled
with disgust that he silently
arose and tiptoed out, and has
never been to church since, be
cause the man who led the pray
er and the man who sang the
song wore so well known to him
that his disgust grows more and
more as he thinks of that Sun
day morning, when he hoped to
meet with real christians and
pure people, but instead met
Gov. Wilson's tactful note to
the chairman of the Inaugural
Committee suggesting the omis
sion of tin ball from this year's
ceremonies had all the effect that
a blatant declaration of invincible
simplicity would have had. The
ball is abandoned for once al
least and, let us hope, forever.
The cost of the ball is suggest
ed as a reason for its abandon
ment, and so far as it goes it is a
good reason, but the United
States would not mind the cost if I
rhfi money wn spent for some!
sort of ceremonial expressive of'
the importance and dignity of
the event which the ba'll cele
brates. Viewed in this light ihe
ball appears dear at any price,
for it expresses nothing. In or
der to give it the pension depart
ment must be shut down three
or four days and the clerks sent
home to spend the time in idle
ness. Great quantities of furni
ture and records must be moved
out and bade again, and all this
is to make room for a disorderly
jam i n which thousands of people
jostle and "mill" like a bunch of
cattle in a corral.
The ST.-i.OOO which the ball
costs is worse than wasted, and
the incoming of the new presi
dent is belittled by the whole

able trouble was averted Satur
day night, bf: the city officials
allowing the constable to take
charge of a negro who was lock
ed up in jail and carrying him to
Carutliersville under a warrant
issued by a justice of the peace.
So far as we can learn, his of
fense is not a serious one under
the law, only he was drunk and
tried to enter a house where a
white family lived. But there is
a large number of people in Hay
ti who would be glad o.! an oppor
tunity to make an example of any
bad negro who may come along,
and the late h urs of the nig it
might have found this negro in
pretty rough hands.
So far, we have not heard of a
petition being circulated in Ca
rutliersville or by the dry people
out in the county.
Unfortunately, Mr. McCarty
is . i citizen of Carutliersville, a
town of more than :!."()() popula

the balance of the county dry,

bear upon Mr. McCarty against
any change of the law, but he

county and must answer to

There is absolutely nothing
that does more for the churches,
church societies, organizations
and Sunday schools than the
home paper, yet in every com-
inanity there is that class of
church members and perhaps
one preacher who have an irre
sistable inclination to say ugly
tilings about the sheet, espe
cially if it carries saloon or beer
advertisements, while at the
same time the "preacher" and
hisyloclc gladly accept all the do
nations they can get from saloon
men and gamblers, even to a $u7)
gasoline lighting system. Under
the oath a publisher takes when
he applies to the United States
Postoffice Department for ad
mission to tne mails, he cannot
refuse any advertising matter
that is legitimate, according to
the Federal laws, and his charges
msci be uniform, not prohibitive.
