Thinking possibly it would' he inter
esting to your matiy renders to know
gomethinit of thiri wonderful country, I
will write a short letter now, hoping to
have more to Hay In the near future. A
highly cultured lady who had traveled
extensively abroad and in all part of
the l' ni ted Males remnrked, "well, I
must say, I believe this to be the center
of (he Harden spot of the world." And
1 assure you this sentiment Is heartily
Accepted' by L'Hi'j bluo grass Kentuck
ian ; hence I am wholly inadequate to
undertake even a partial description. I
had often heard and read of this God
favored country ; "but the half has nev
er been told." It Is my purpose at this
time to ppeuk of the' religious atmos
phere that seems to pervade this city
and surrounding country.
Winchester has a population of about
,,()(); a city of schools and churches;
some of the finest schools in the .State
are located here, and many of the
churches would compare favorably with
cities of ten times the population, rang
ing in cost from $IO,OiHi to $7;,IHK). They
have twelve passenger trains every
twenty-four hours, and thirteen pikes
coming from all parts of this blue grass
oouutrv. The town is thoroughly
lighted" with electricity and has a com
plete system of sewerage, well worked
streets and g .! brick and stone pave
mnnts In ever" part of the city; and
Vest of all, they have a sulliclent reve
nue to meet all these obligations, and I
understand there is not a saloon in the
city or county. Here is a fruitful lesson
worthy of the thoughtful considera
tion of good people everywhere, and
more especially tor those of us who
have children 'to train for time and
eternity. Doubtless the absence of
saloons has much to do with the religi
ous atmosphere that permeates the en
You will allow me to say, the revival
meetings I had the pleasure of conduct
ing here, were the best 1 ever attended;
it was not unusual to see the large
church building literally packed and
seemingly every heart melted to ten
derness; no noisy protestations, but un
mistakable manifestations of power of
the Holy (ihost, that produce "sweet
peace, the gift of Cod's love." All chris
tians are educated into the belief that it
Is their duty to taxe part in the public
services, aiid they do so with an earnest
ness and simplicity that at once re
moves all restraint. One half hour be
fore the regular services is given to
song and prayer; they never sing more
than two verses of any one song, and
they have not less than a dozen short
prayers. It seems that everbody prays
in public, young and old, male and
female, from all parts of the congrega
tion ; and this is not confined to church
alone, but on entering their homes, im
mediately alter introduction and baud
shaking for they always give you a
warm hearty grasp all stand and have
a number of short prayers, sometimes
every member of the family praying.
Kvefything is done in "decency and
in order." They are not fanatics, do not
profess to be sanctified, but are a cut
Hired, consecrated people. That all
may fully understand, I will give one
example in detail.
Immediately on my arrlvnl at Win
chester, Ky., I was met at thedepot and
directed to lr. M. S. hrowne's, a man of
wealth and great .culture. He has a
magnificent home, his children were
educated in the lust schools in this
country and abroad, and have traveled
extensively. I had been in my room
but a short time until we were called to
prayer: prayer was ottered, thankimc
liod for pcrmiting us to meet accord
ing to appointment, and praying His
blessings upon everything that might
he done, it is prayer in the room, at
the table, when 'they bid you good
night, when they meet you in the
morning earnest, child-like, simple
praver. I have been studying to know
liow these happy results were brought
about, and believing it would be inter
esting and profitable, I will giveat least
one important factor. It is the custom
of pastor ami church workers to attend
Moody's Itihlu school at Northlield,
Mass., during the summer months; here
thev gut the very ht;-t course in Bible
study. It is a summer resort where
you ina v go without fear o! contami
nation and without a large hank
account. All services lend to deepen
the spiritual life and make christians
all it is possible for them to become.
M r. Moody illustrates this idea in many
.wiys. Said he: "Onetinn inLindon,
when I wished to go to t lie Crystal
Palace, I was asked whether I would
go by the 'high levil' or 'low levil' road.
Not being used to the London trans
potation system, I took a 'low levil'
ticket, which resulted in a miserable
Journey underground and landed a long
distance from the Palace. -No more low
levels for me in railway trains or religi
on." It is said those who attend this
wonderful religious summer school, go
on a Mow levil' ticket, bur return on a
'high levil.' So strict are they in their
ideas that they will not allow' a person
to engage in Sunday-school teaching or
any form of christian activity unless
his spiritual life is vigorous.
Why should not our church workers
attend this helpful conference, rather
than some fashinable watering place?
Our great need is more consecration,
more power, more spirituality, more
willing workers. T. 10. Ilfpsox.
She l'ltled the Horses.
"The poor animals seemed all
worn out," said a young woman. "I
hated to g t on the car, but I had to
go that way or be late h t( church.
Anyway, I was as considerate ns
possible, for I sat down just as easy
as I could, and I don't think half my
weight rested on the seat."

Whatever your sex or position,
life is a battle in which you are to

are cowardice and defeat. Men are
born to succeed, not to fail.
Timidity is a disease of the mind,
obstinate and fatal; for a man, once

The Outlook for November.
The Peace Commission in Paris is de
scribed and illustrated in the Novem
ber magazine number of The Outlook,
to be published next week, by a staff
correspondent in Paris. The article
contains sketches of both the Amer
ican and Spanish Commissioners, with
portraits of most of them. Jacob A.
Kiis, the author of "How the Other
Half Lives, "contributes a graphic artt
cle concerning the New York Police
Department. Mr. Kiis has had excep
tional acquaintance with the methods
of the department, and tells the story of
many individual deeds of heroism with
enthusiastic praise. Kdward Kverett
Hale gives in this issue the eleventh
installment of his "James Kussell
Lowell and His Friends," which will
be concluded in the December Maga
zine issue. It deals chiefly with
Lowell's life in Kngland when he serv
ed as United States Minister, and is
fully illustrated. Paul Hoiirget, the fa
mous French essayist and 'novelist, is
the author of a notable story, entitled
"Antigone," which portrays with ex
ceeding charm a gracious and loftv
personality. Among the illustrated ar
ticle in this number are a picturesque
account of a visit to the country of Sit
ting Bull, by Kosa T. Shelton, with
many striking pictures of Indian life
from original photographs: and an arti

The Tre Calmness.
It was said of a certain well-known
ollicial in our denomination that "he
had one advantage over some of his
breathren he could look calm wheth
er he felt so or not." That was an ad
vantage. There is a scriotural injunc
tion: "Let your moderation be known
of all men." Consciousness of right pur
pose, conndence in the promise and
providence of Wod, and, above all, the
realization in the present tense by faith
of his love shed abroad in the heart by
the Holy (ihost, makes a real calm that
no external shocks can destroy. Temp

And from his words will never depart.
He loves' to tell us how to live,
And to the Lord our hearts to give;
How in this life to prepare the way
In a future state with Christ to stay.

We will escape the burning lake;
And meet our friends in heaven above,
Where all is peace, and joy and love.
