To preach in a well-appointed ' church building, instead of be 1 ing driven to a court-house; to have that church irt full sympathy with our through and through; to have a pastor of a nourishing congregation boldly j proclaiming his entire endorsement of our doctrine; of course that can happen 1 nowhere, just now, but in dear George Dunlap's "little Hock," where that faithful I "under shepherd" feeds his Master's sheep in the green pastures of G. I. L. J A. X. K. I It is a perfectly luxuiioiis nook for us ' to stretch our weary limbs in, and these i ten days have been as near akin to Paradise ' as any we have known hi our itinerant 1 ministry. I Mrs. Kllen Gibson, from Hichinond, , joined our happy circle early last week, I and only left for home yesterday George's family, with wife and I, j ' occupy the parsonage. .The rest of the party are in the spacious basement rooms of tlio pretty church, where, not only aro they delightfully accommodated, but as the old African hymn says, j "There'll room for many a more."' Sunday was an o.vcr memorable day for us all. We did not crowd tho orthodox three hervices in, leaving preachers limp and exhausted, for tho retributions of "blue Monday;" and tho congregation in a condition of spiritual dyspepsia from a gorge of gospel. Hut wo had nt 11 a. m. nnd again at .1 v. m., with an Independence basket dinner, between; spread on amplo tuhles In the parsonage yard, under the topped locust trees' delicious shade; with a carpet of blue-grass, springy nnd soft as velvet underfoot; blue skleH, smiling, well-pleased, above; a gentle broezo, stirring tho leaves, and neutralizing the heat; victuals abundant nnd all cold but tho cofleo, bo hot and fragrant; whilo Bharp did full justice to the generous feast. In the eweet and solemn twilight, after tho crowd was dispersed, about 20 lingered for "holy communion;" which closed tho day In fullest blessing, as wo gathered in tho parsonage parlor to remember the LORD'S death. Wo were all in sympathy with the observance of tho sacred ordinance; fully believing tlmt iitoia'iiK'iit Iiiih lu't'n mink by our IistiHt ill IHh ileur (lentil, for "ftk'kucMM nnil !nllrinit!i'n" .m well tin "niii" nml "rtliH."

I am sure 1 can prove all these things from Scripture. How sad, that Hod's 1 1 people, who profess to be guided by that word, will not even listen to the exposition that so exalts the LOVK and grace of our Hod and Savior; but will gladly hearken to those who, by slandering His character, have given such an one as Col. Ingersoll the easy opportunity of driving in headlong lliglit five chosen champions of Christianity the mightiest the "christian world" cantlndin nlltheir ranks. To me this is the awfttlest fact of the ltlth century, that christian men dare not put mi unvarnished report of this conflict of live to one in the hands of their brainy boys. That no religious publication house has the temerity to put in print what five of tho "bravest and best" ean say for Christianity, alongside of what one inlldel can say against it. Dare any one dispute this fact ? I challenge its denial. I am willing to stand a self-convicted liar and slanderer of tho brethren if this is not so. Oh, honest men and women, will you not see that the reason all this shameful humiliation has come upon us must be because our champions are utterly wrong in the lines of defense they have chosen? This awful fact is full apology for my gospel of G. I. Ij. A. X. K. if any were needed. If it oilers a possible outlet, ought you not to listen to it, for very shame's sake? I cannot do worse than Dr. Taltnage, Prof. Fisher, Judge Mack, Kditor Field and Premier Gladstone have done. We aro asham.ed to print their "level best," besido Col. Ingersoll's responses. Can we sink lower than that? My hope is that earnest men and women will ponder this thing, till they will listen to every one, any one who will proposo "si nipre excellent way." from this awful predicament is what real thinkers crave; come that deliverance from what quarter It may.

All article in your p.i ! pcrof August itlst, brielly mentioning! some of the many advantages possessed , the Lily Mining Co. over othei Ken-. tucky mines has created so much talk and inveHtipttion concerning thu matter that the Proctor Mines have announced determination to wrap their coal In paper, by way of competition. I hnvu not learned whether in homeopathic doses, but they are, or appear to ( daft enough to imagine that tissue paper can bo had thick enough to con-1 ceal from the scrutinizine public the I impurities ami want of cleanlines.sof that any other coal compared with this of Idly Mines bright and shining, clean enough to spread on damask linen it comes from tho revolving screen and which like Tennyson's rivulet, continues to "flow on forever." Lily coal needs no paper of any kind, neither to conceal defects nor to prevent coal from soiling the hands, but those who are disposed to preserve its ,.r,..Iltll,.M ,, ,l,anli..css may nvoi, 1 soiling it by using white kid gloves, night here let me say that Lily will not allow other mines to claim her samples; but dealers and consumers are invited to come and see the sight ii worth the trip or to send for samples fresh from the screens, uiisoiled by contact with the cars. Poor old Proctor! Your tissue paper is "too thin." Theie has bten a great deal said about there being no roof this coal, as well as many other state-. incuts of an iiijuilous character, and, Mich rcpoitH have been made for one of two purposes, i. e. to keep miners fr0n wlvi, ItfM .,rolita,,i0 lnillHJ t0 work and coming here where they do so well, or to cover the mistake made by former owners who abandoned the mines thinking them no good, because they did not know where to strike to hit the tlnest coal in the mountains and as well roofed as can be desired, L. BAKING POWDERS. Interesting Tests Made by the Government Chemists, Dr. Kdward (i. Love, the Analytical Chemist for the Government, has made some interesting experiments as to the comparative value of baking powders. Dr. Love's tests were made to determine what brands are the most economical to use, and as their capacity lies in the leavening power, tests were directed solely asceitaiu the available gas of each powder. Dr. Love's report gives the following: Njrne of th Culic inchpt C J llalinj I'owdeM. wr rach ounce of l'mrtlcr Ko)m (.involute!. purr 7 4 I'autcn (alum unwdcr) US.

Prof. McMurtrie, late chief chemist of the lT. S. Government at Washington, j says: "The chemical tests to which I j have submitted tho Royal Unking Pow der, prove it perfectly healthful, and free from overv deleterious substance." The Raccoon Democrats Organizing. To the Kditor of thu Interior Journal The democracy of Raccoon Precinct, Lnurel county, organized themselves into "Tho Royal Democratic Club of Raccoon" last week. W. S. Young was chosen president and It. It. Rowling secretary. Sixty-five members were enrolled and the number will be doubled at tho nt'xt meeting. The democrats were never more enthusiastic here.

Jones, Crab Orchard, Ky, HHH vJfwHRw COL. JOHN G. CRADOOCK. We present our patrons with theabove beautiful chromo in token of our appreciation of their long continued favors. Most of you have heard of tho subject, who until Mulhattou appeared upon the stage, had no superior in the art of prevarication, tliouuh his efforts lay in a more laudable line. For years it was his especial province to tell of cerials and garden truck, with now and then a fairy talc about some individual who was fortunate enough to be a Hourlton or an ex-Bourbon. He has fallen somewhat into innocuous desuetude now, but It must not be imagined that our hero lags superfluous on the stage, however. He still manages to get around pretty lively, though in his .)7th year, and to make more long journeys without expense and get away with more free hash than half a dozen less foitunate men. It is told of Col. Crad-dock that in his long, eventful and checkered career, he was never known to fqicnd a cent, till his visit to the late press convention, when a Southern conductor charired him $1 from Lexinaton to Danville. This was subsequently refunded him by the company on presentation of the receipt that he demanded when forced to shell out his cash. He edits his paper on the cars and uses old envelopes and other scraps that he picks up for copy paper. He never learned to write, but his compositors have by lonu wrestling with it learned to decipher his hieroglypics, or rather to guess whom he has met and what he and they said. Hut the colonel always gets there and and his paper, the Paris boasts the largest circulation in the State.
