The New
We are about to be presented with a row year. What shall
we do with it? It Is gift clean and unspotted from the contam
ination that is due to the misuses of men. Murder, blasphemy,
everything that brings disappointment and sadness, have not yet
besmirched its snow wh te paces. It Is the time of possibilities
of hope. There in not a human bring living on the fae of the
earth who cannot enter thin new year with hteh resolves and a
face looking toward the future. This new year will contain 305
days, each ore of them a round in the ladder thnt is ascending
toward henven. Kach day will rontain an opportun ty for noble
service. Km h day will bring un all face to face with the Christ.
He may be tlrred in ratts and wearing the earmark of a tramp
or a hobo, but xtdl cm tinning within his human wreckage an ever
living amd wiih the "park of the I) vine unquenched.
What are c going to do with the opportunities of releasing
the spark of the Divine in humun lives? The world is rot all
wrong, nor ia the millennium in night, but the world Is just tho
kind of a place for a game aoldicr to do service In. If the millen
nium were in night, we would nil get lazy. We would be looking
out for our harps. We would be dickering with eai h other an to
the number of firings they nhould conta n. We would be figurirg
on the circumference of the halo that is to nurround our celestial
heads. There in no such dreamy spectacle an that just ahead of
US. We have rot yet reached the place where we ran emulate the
apont'es of old in quarreling as to the portion we will hold in tho
millennium. I'lood and si me are in our pathway. We must either
clean it out or wade thru it. We have not yet reai hed the place
where politics in the cleanest, nor conditions subline. Are wo
going to make a r-tep forward in th.s new year toward righting
the wrongs of human beings? There are every day pr blcms that
engross the whole minds of great masses of our populnt on wh.i
are oftc so fur down the scale as to he unnlde to even appreciate
the existence of the Nazarene. Are we going to make any efforts
to make the Nanrerie real in the lives of the common pep'o?
There is a mmler" thought in r ligion, that is that ( hr stiunity has
only one suit of clothes and that suit is worn to the office, the
shop, the farm, and to Sunday s( hool. That suit is ta lored in
the fashion of the common people, and it must he tut in such a
style as to fit the workmen of the world. Are we going to see
that children are given a better ihnm-e during this coining year
Thnt motherhood is held !ii red ? That the American home is to
continue to he the cradle of demot racy, of freedom, a' d righteous
ness? Are we going to enter in upon th s new year with a nene
of our ol ligations to our fellownier.- -with a realization f the
duty we have to perform to soc iety and to the promotion of the
cause of Christ ?
1 hee aie some of the salient questions that confront every
true American citizen, every seeker after the truth, every son of
God who would rather work for the hoMcnne? t of mankind than
to go to Heaven. Let tin indiv dually try to keep the pages of
1922 as free and unci, tiled as when we received them and alno see
that eai h one is well filled w ith honorable and well written history.
Henry Watterson Dead
"Marsc" Herry Watterson, the greatest journalist and editor
of the hint half rcntury, has passed away at his home in Florida.
Mr. Watterson had a notable career. He was a son of oppor
tunity, for he came from a family of wealth and education. His
father was a statesman of rare genius who served three terms
In Congress from Tennessee. Henry was born in Washington
City, eighty-one years ago. From his early infancy he came in
con tin t with statesmen and journalists.
He represents that rare type of nntioral men who believe
stronirly in personal liberty and Individual rights. He believed
with Thomas Jefferson that government 's a recensary evil, there
fore the least governmental interference with the affairs of in
dividuals was the best for the development of the individual. He
wrote with a ready pen, and his intellect wan clear to the closing
lays rf his life. During the recent war, just about when the
Courier-Journal changed hands and Mr. Watterson was leav ng
his post as editor, a prize was offered by a New York publisher
for the best editorial on the war. Mr. Watterson sat down in ho
room one night about nine o 'clink and struck off a rough draft
of his editorial, then he criticized it and cop ed it in its final form.
Several hundred editorials were submitted wi hout name, and Mr
Watterson's received the $.",00() reward. He did not have to sign
his name. Anybody who had ever read an editorial by Henry
Watters. n knew whose pen it was that strut k off th s declaration
of principle. It is fair to Mr. Watterson to correct an almost
universal error. He opposed prohibition in any form, in which
he was seriously wrong, but he did not use whisky at all. His
wife, who knew him better than anyone else and who has no
apologcs to make for him, says that he always loved a glass of
beer or wine, but never took liquor.
Mr. Watterson was a game fighter ami, like President Roose
velt, was admired and is mourned as much by those who disagreed
with him. as those who concurred in his opinions.
The Woolworth Scheme
Tho antics of the world in connection with the recei t Confer
ence at Washington have been very nteresting to the casual ob
server. The disarmament pact, which is to be known henecfor h
as the Little League, started the excitement. Now the news
comes from Furope that another league is contemplated a league
of Fnglaml, Frame, Japan, and tiermany. The suggestion of tho
alM.ve-iuei tinned league has aroused sonic excitement in Belgian
circles. It will become known as the "Hig Hear" in the Kuropean
constellation. The thing now for Helg urn to do is to create a
sentiment for league of small nations, say Itulgium, Denmark.
Holland, anil Switzerland. This league can be called the "Littlo
Bear" of the constellation.
This chain of leagues around tho world has an unlimited field,
as there arc something like seventy recognized nations in tht
world, and if there is to bo a fixed number of four nations in
each league, the series of combinations that can bo worked out it
indefinite. The Woolworth Ten Cent Stores are a wonderful ex
ample of the success of the chain system. Possibly in working
out these various leagues Woolworth has been taken as tho pat
tern. All joking aside, there are before the world today at least
four combii atom of leagues. "At what ia the world aiming?"
la the ser ous question. Is it trying to evolve a league of nations,
or ia it poking fun at the idea? There are two consistent, ag
gressive, virile schools of thought in this country today. One ia
the l!orah-Johnson-Keed school that despises the idea of any sort
of league. The other is the Wilson group that stands unalterably
pledged to the already established league that baa sufhVent back
bone and teeth to make itself felt in the world. Shall we have a
united league with a purpose, or a series of Woolwolh leagues ex
tending around the world t

And in my ears come ringing f. th
The poet's words serene,
"Truth forever on the scaffold,
Wrong forever on the throne,
Yet thnt scaffold sways the future,
And behind the dim unknown
Stnndeth God within the shadow,
Keep:rg watch above His own."
Could you but see beyond the smoke
And blood and mortal strifle,
Could you but train your skeptic eye
To pierce the darkness rife,
Yon wou'd not narrowly discern !
The things both small and great.
Nor would, when ev'l forces rule, '
Resign the world to fate.
You do not hear the si ill small Voice
Nor nee the Hand Divine,
Hut look, the clouds are drifting by,
The sun begins to shine, I
And lo, where is the haughty foe? j
There spreads another scene. ,
Behold the hosts of God march on,
IIKRE is the Nazarene. I
In ntres past we hear the cry
When evil hosts assail,
"Where is the Voice that said,
'My hand shall never fail?'"
In words no mind can e'er m'stake,
We read the answer plain
Oo histories nage in boldest type,
"They struggled not in vain."
Have you not seen, oh skeptic friend,
The Kaiser's band In chains?
Of course the batth fie'tls ran red
Anil hearts bowed down in pain.
But now behold on Fla"ders fields
Their graves are rapt in green.
No more the savage foe stalks there,
IIKRE is the Nazarene.
Christ works II s great tlesigns
Thru such lui"gs as you and me.
Why wonder, then, that skies are
dark ?
For you cannot hut nee
That with sti'h dull, unwilling too'?
Why time must, interv -o
And untold sufferings result.
Chide not the Nazarene.
Be rot deluded, Jesus reigns.
His plans will never fail.
Tho skies are dark and progress
God's will shall e'er prevail.
No ration yet has made its mark
Since Christendom began,
Except by faith in Jesus Christ,
Deny the fat t who can.
Whv prattle thus about the ass,
The Ford and limousine?
Did ne but live with us t inlay,
No doubt the Nazarene
Would find beside some humble home
A Ford and step within.
It seems, my friend, from all your
Your gas is getting thin.
In all the changing stages of
Mankind, since time began,
You seem to think that never once
Has God e'er changed a plan.
You spenk of pestilence and death,
Of Him who broke the bread,
As if to say there is no God,
Or there would be no dead. ,, .

Col. R. C. Oldham by about 1600
majority In the 29th district, which
Includes Madison, Rockcastle, Owsley,

It Is reported that Col. Oldham is
thinking of contenting the election
on the grounds that Mr, Wallace is
ineligible to represent th's section of

Frankfort practining law for over a
year. He point n out that the Consti

their silver cand'e sticks and brought
to mind beautiful memories of the
nights when so many of our friend
assembled to assure us of their lovj

On Sunday next, New Year's Day,
the sacrament of the Lord's Supper
will be observed, and some new mem
bers welcomed into the church. The
sermon is to be given by Professor
I V. Dodge, upon the subject, "The
Discipline of Suffering." All are
cordially invited.
It was a happy thought on part of
Mr. Dick, Superintendent of Union
Sunday-school, together with others,
to take the Christmas entertainment
this year to the main College Chapel
so that the five or six hundred stu
dents who are on the grounds during
the Christmas holidays might enjoy
it together with the regular congre
gation. The w'ioIo entertainment was de
lightful. Pr-fessor Raine's class of
girls dramatized, in a most striking
way, the shepherd scene, the home in
Bethlehem, urn tho Magi! scene. A
delightful surprise was the Ringing,
by such f-f the Harmonia number?
as were in town, undT the able
leadership of Professor Rigby the
wonderful chorus, "Glory to God in
tho highest." This, combined witli
the beautiful costumes in the shep
herd scene, left a remarkable impress
upon all. The whole play was beau
tifully carried out, and great credit
is due to all those who participated
in it.
Afterwards the usual gift of candy
and sweet meats was made to the
students of the Union Sunday-school,
the courtesy being extended to all
studerts of the ent're school present
as well as the grown-ups. Thus a
"sweet'' foretaste of the merry
Christmas which was to follow.
