I- LOVES OF GREAT
AMERICANS.
! General Forrest's !
! "Whirlwind Courtship" !
I.
Ono Suuday morning in 1815 a
young AlibbiSbippi planter-backwoodsman
was riding to church
ulong a road that was m wretched
condition irom the .March fresh
ets. The rider was strikingly
handsome; glaringly illiterate, lie
was Mutkan Bedford Forrest, son
ol a local blacksmith, and des
tined to be remembered as one of
America's greatest cavalry lead
ers. At one point in his ride that
Sunday morning the road widen
ed into a quagmire and minature
lake, in the midst ol this mire a
carriage was stuck, hopelessly
bogged down. Two women sat in
the stalled vehicle. One was eld
erly ; the other an unusually beau
tiful girl, .Mary .Montgomery by
name, i'orrest looked at the girl,
and he fell in love with her.
Two men on horseback, the la
dies' escorts to church where
staring stupidity at the bogged
carriage, and were making no ei
forts to get it out of the mire or
to rescue its occupants from their
helpless plight. Forrest dis
mounted, waded out into the
water, reached the side ot the car
riage, and tenderly lifted Alary
Montgomery irom the front seat,
carrying her as lightly as if she
were a child, lie deposited her on
dry ground, then waded back for
the older woman.
After which he unharnessed the
horses, put his powerful shoulder
to the wheel, and by main
strength pushed the carriage out
of the slough and back to the
main road. Keharnessing the
horses, he turned on the two cha
grined escorts, treated them to a
tongue lashing that they dared
not resent, and then ordered them
to clear out of the vicinity in a
hurry.
This pleasant duty being ac
complished, Forrest helped the
two, women into their carriage,
introduced himself and insited on
escorting them to church in place

That afternoon he called on
Alary Montgomery. 'While he was
waiting for her to enter the draw
ing room so runs the story, one
of the two escorts appeared. For
rest is said to have dropped this
possible rival gently out of the
window and to have threatened
to shoot him if ever he should set
foot in the Montgomery house
again.
Other wooers met with similai
rebuffs nt Forrest's vigorous
hands. And, as soon as he had
cleared the field of all rivals, he
embarked on a whirlwind court
ship as swift and decisive as one
of his later cavalry charges.
Within a very few days he and
Mary Montgomery were engaged.
And on April 23 of the same year
they wore married. Theirs was
an ideally happy wedded life.
Forrest prospered in financial af
fairs under his wife's wise guid
ance until, just before he threw
over all his business prospects to
risk his life in the Civil war, he
was making $30,000 a year.
Forrest's wife is also said to
haee educated him. If this is
true she made a sorry job of it.
To the end of his days he wrote
more incoherently than would an
eight-year-old school boy. Here,
for instance, is an extract from
one of his war reports the re
port of Fort Pillow's capture:
"We busted the fort at niner
eloek and scattered them. The
men is still a cillanew (a-killing
them) in the woods. Them
Them as was eoteh with spoons
and brestpins and sieh was eilled
and the rest of the lot was pay
rold and toldto git."
Yes, Mrs. Forrest was decidedly
better as a wife than as an edu
eat or.

"MISSIONARY
LIGHT HOUSE"
IN VIRGINIA
Ingenious Device for Stimulating
Interest in Monthly Offerings
for Missions. Are We
Reaching Our Share?
A Missionary Liguthouso Is tho In
genius devlco employed by tho mission
committee of a church In Lynchburg,
Virginia, for tho purposo of stimulat
ing an Interest in monthly offerings.
Mr. Ambrose Page, chairman of tho
committee, gives tills description of
tho missionary lighthouse:
Tho lighthouse is eight feet tall,
built to n scalo on ono fot to nn inch,
therefore representing a real light
houso ninety-six feet tall. It Is six
sided, built of beaver boaid on a wood
en frame, and in tho top it lias tlireo
forty-watt electiic bulbs. Tho whole
thing cost two and a half dollars, In
cluding boards, bulbs, paint, paper,
nails, and tacks. It was built at homo
by Mr. and Mrs. R. W. Page, tho writ
er's mother and father, both of whom
have passed threescore years and ten.
Spaco has been figured on tho light
houso for three hundred and fifty
stones, eacli Btono representing ono
dollar. The first two missionary col
lections for 1915, January and Febru
ary, blocked out flfty-nino largo foun
dation stone3 in tho lighthouse. We
have selected for our missionary hymn
for tho year "Let tho Gospel Light
Shine Out," tho first erse of which bo
gins, "Standing like a lighthouse."
Tho understanding Is that as long
as wo measure up to the goal set of
$29.17 each missionary Sunday the

Japan.)

that amount tho light will go out, thn
work on tho Hghthouso "Will Btop, and
tho causo will suffer betfauso tho gos
pel light will not shlno)ut. Tho older
members of tho school and, of course
the children, aro delighted with tho
plan, and I feel very euro that tht
light will shino and' continue to shine
We have a palntoA clock on paper
near tho lighthouse, which shows the
oxact amount contributed to date.
Mr. Pago comcludes his note with
a striking bit or testimony, given hero
for tho cncourAgemont of other com
mittees: "Everybody helps, and it's
almost liko may to carry tho work
along."

Are WeJ Reaching Our Share?
Wo have in North America twenty
four million Protestant church mem
bers and About fourteen or fifteen mil

Added together, these make almost
one-third of tho population of theso

WATERED SECURITIES
By Peter Radford.
Much has been Bald and moro writ
ten about tho evils of watered stock in
big business concerns and tho farm
ers of this nation beliovo that every
dollar written into tho lifo of any
business organization, should bo able
to say "I know that my Redeemer
livoth," but farming is tho biggest
business on earth, nnd there is moro
water in its financial transaction than
that of any other industry. There Is
us much water in u farmer's note
drawing eight or ten per cent interest
when other lines of industry secure
money for four or live per cent per
annum,, as there Is in a business pay
ing a reasonable compensation upon
tho faco valuo of securities repre
senting an investment of only fifty
cents on the dollar. The only dif
ference Is, tho water is in the Interest
rato In ono instance and In tho secur
ities in tho other.
The promoter ofttimes takes chances
and his success is contingent upon
tho development of tho property in
volved but tho usurer, as a rule, takes
no chances and his success cripples
tho property Involved. There may bo
Industries that cry louder but nono
that Buffer moro severely from finan
cial immorality in both law and cus
tom than that ot agriculture.
The farmers of America today aro
paying $200,000,000 per annum in
usury on real estato and chattel
loans, and this Interest capitalized
at five per cent, represents $4,000,000.
000 of fictitious values which tho farm
er Is paying interest on. This sum of
money is almost equal to the annual
value of crops produced In tho United
States.
The earning power of tho farmer's
note based upon his interest rato very
nearly divides likes tho earth's surfacethroe-fourths
water and one
fourth land. Tho largest body of wa
ter that floats upon the financial hem
isphere now rests upon the farms
and Its waves aro dashing and Its
billows aro rolling against soven mil
lion homes threatening ruin and dis
aster to tho prosperity of tho nation
Will our public Bcrvants who under
stand how to drain the lUmld off In
dustrial properties turn tho faucot and
let tho water off tho farms?
It is an admitted economic fact that
there can be no permanent prosperity
