The spirit or coercion, it appears to u?, has takenjpossession of many peo ple to such an extent that tbelrofforts to lmprova moral antisocial conditions lose much of their strength in the bitter antagonisms they Invoke. There is continual harping about enforce ment of the laws and denunciation of those who violate them. The idea of persuasion bus been en tirely forgotten. Seldom"hear we of movements to persuade men to do right. On the other hand compulsion is uppermost In the minds of those who are continually agitation reforms. The evil doings of others are heralded to tbe world and the authorities are b'amcd. The object of this course is not apparent. It enrages those who violate the laws and drives them to a desperation and antagonism, which re sult in more ilugrant vloalatlons. It vexes tbe ollicars to be thus constant ly criticized and Is without good effect It certainly does not stimulate them to better effort in the discbarge of their duties, but to tbe contrary it drives them to their work like a hen pecked iLubband. Instead of an] encouragement and a strength to them j It bas a demoralizing effect. Again, in this connection never bear we com mendation of the officers for the good deeds they do. They receive no praise, whatever, but are always subjects for fault-fin Jers. No spirit of generosity or liberality Is shown toward them. And again, we venture to say, aud te lieve wo can substantiate the declara tion! that there Is not a single citizen in Clarksburg, who docs not violate some law. It may be a trhle but it Is a violation nevertheless. This being true it would be the proper thing and an exhibition of earnestness and slr. .cerity for all who are so punctilious about the keeping of the laws to care fully refrain from even the slightest and most insignificant violation them selves. Tbey ought to set an example. Having done this let them then not overlook the fact that the important feature of tbe end they desire attained is the good behavior of the people. Wltb that attained there will be no necessity for the enforcement of th? laws by the officers for tbe reason that they are obeyed by the people, ilarsb measures are found necessary at times but persuasive ones are usually much more effective. Men are much more easily led than driven. A great deal of strife and bitter feeling has been engendered by the agitation indulged In here the past several month?. Many-harsh things have been uttered. In many Instances unwarranted charges have been made and the char acters of innocent people have been blackened and In some instances maliciously and for selfish purposes. The patriotism of the people has been disturbed. The spirit of common In terest bas been weakened. The get aud-work-together spirit ha* bce-j checked. There Is not so much ardor la btidlng up th? ?!ty. Tbtre cjuij not be progressiveness so long aa these conditions keep up. -We can not oon tinually war among-ourselves and sur vive. There mast be a change, If we wuulJ advance. .What oupbt to be the nature and character of that change?, Is a pertinent question (or the carerul consideration of every one. May we be permitted to suggest that leas force and more persuasive ness be tried? Discard the bablt of criticizing the officers and co-operate with them. I/et thuse who know of the commission of crime lend a band In Its suppression. Last but pot least letatbere be a healthy, earnest cam paign of example and persuasion. An advance step was taken when the city established a fire department, but Its mere establishment does not complete the work or-U? the necessity. Constant improvements should be made. Among these is an alarm sys tem. Another Is a book and ladder company properly and modernly equipped. A general alarm appears to be a necessity, since the department Is not as large as is required to fTght a big fire successfully. It Is found neces sary to bavo volunteer tlremen and these must come from the citizens. But If '.bey are not apprised of the fact that there Is a fire, tbey are not upon the scene, and, as a consequence, there can not be volunteers. There are many things in connection with the depart ment the city oouncil would do well to give Its attention to. The depart ment, as it Is now conducted, does ex cellent work and gives good satisfac tion, but the council Bhould provide it with means to do still better scrvlce. It can not be too efficient. Tim gas companies of this city are probably aware of the fact tliat the fuel for glass and other factories In the Indiana gas belt Is almost exhaust ed. Being thus apprised, it is not out of order for this paper to suggest that, these companies put forth an extra effort to get those factories to locate here. That would mean a market for the product of the gas companies and would augment the Industrial activity of this section. If we would have more of these industries, it Is high time we are up aDd doing. Get to gether. gentlemen, and bring more factories to Clarksburg. Increase the weekly and monthly pay-rolls and bus iness will increase too. The first of the year is at hand. May there be de termined and united effort to advance every Interest and may our industrial and commercial strides be longer and stronger than in any twelve months of our history. Rekoum candidates ought not to use the saloons and dice to further their political interests. It Is an evidence of hypocrisy. The people are too wise these days to be deceived all the time. A saloon Is not an appropriate place for a reform candidate to open Ills campaign. The people have about come to the conclusion that certain reform candi dates should first reform themselves before they agitate other reformation. Death of Infant A son of Mr. and Mrs. C. Vf.

That this Is so, without a doubt, is practi cally proven by the. unstinted success which has greeted Willis Granger dur ing his present tour with "Gypsy Jack," Not only Ib Manager1* Edward C. While highly pleased with the re ception which has greeted his new star, but the latter has, by his intrin sic worth as a melo-dramatic actor, proven his Utness for the role of the gypsy boy, which is the leading char acter in the production. Miss Katherinc Willard is adding new laurels to her reputation by her rendition of "Aria" in the emotional drama, "The Power Behind the Throne." Miss Wlilard has proved her ability and exceptional talents in the production, so much so that her tour Is one continuous ovation. Noth ing ]s lacking in sccnlc effect, stage mechanism or costuming to keep "The Pfjwer Behind the Throne" up to the topmost standard, while the star's support "play up to her" with admirable skill. Effingham, 111., Nov. 7, 1902. "The Tide of Life" played my house on November 7, to a big house and gave entire satisfaction. The com pany is a well selected one and the scenery and electrical effects extra ordinary. The specialties far surpass any presented here so far this season. Return of a Great Pro d.iction. A piistu-al, natural drama, flavored with the ?/;; local color of Tennes see life, describes "A Romance of Coon Hollow," which has been one of thejtubstjntial triumphs of the last eight seasons. Tills success is due U the magnificent scenic effects, among which are a realistic steamboat race between R. E. Lee and Natchez, and a cotton press in actual- operation. But the play meets favor on worthier grounds. It is splendidly constructed, the characters are tlesh and blood be ing the plot is dramatic and interest ing, and the humor genuinely funny. The electrical eflects, showing a nlgtit In a southern country place, are novel and prutty. A "red hot" troupe of darkey male and female plantation dancers, and an excellent vocal quar tette, add volume to the entertain ment. "Coon Hollow" will be seen at Grand Opera Honse. one night, Tues day, Decembor 30 The Tide of Life Edwakd Austin, Manager Opera House, Edwardsvllle, III Astonntllno; Memories.

By a series of elaborate experiments a soleotist has come to the conclusion that bees are not so Intelligent as house Kiesi Appreciative. A housekeeper who has been em ploying a colored washerwoman for several months was surprised to see her appear last week In a bat trimmed heavily with crape. "Why, Julia," she asked, "Is any of your famUy dead?" "No, no," was the reply, "but one of my best customers gave me this bat, and I didn't want her to think I don't 'predate not bin'." VICARIOUS RESTITUTION. The Preacher Got the Hens and th? Decree Wai Revoked. Not long since a respectable colored* preacher, who was uoteil for his abil ity to "cuss out" people from the pul pit, was burling thunderbolts of in vective againnt his congregation be cause of a great wave of lying and stealing that was sweeping over the city. Among other things, he said: ,4'No lofager'n las* night some one come an' stole de las* two chlckins dat me an' mah ole 'oman had. I b'Ueves de thief is ill dls house right now, an' I hereby countersigns him to cvahlastin* puulshment. De nigger dat stole dem chlckins Is a-gwinter burn fur it sho. Yo' hyeah me? De 'cree has gone forth V Next morning a colored man with two fine hens came up to the preach er's door. He said: "Parson, hyeah's yo' chlckins." "No, sab," said the preacher, eying the .chickens closely, "dese ain't mah chlckins." "I knows dey ain't perzactly yo'wn," explained the parishioner, "but dese is to tek de place of yo'wnr Yo' chlckins wuz et up 'fo' de 'cree went forth, an' las' night atter I went to bed my con-, shunce hurt me so tell 1 had to git up an' go ovah to Marso Bob's house an' git two mo* chlckins. Parson, do tek dese ehicklns, an' fur de Lawd's sake I tek dut 'cree back too."?Llpplncott's. KnKlinlt Deer Hunting. The running of the deer begins in j November, and It is said they often tnke as keen an interest in the hunt as their pursuers. The hounds are never allowed to kill them, and t?e same I ones are Often run for several succes | alve years. Twenty-five of the heifer* and does are selected for the season'h sport, and two are usually run in a week. The one chosen for the day is drawn in a queer looktug two wheeled covered cat t to the appointed place. The back of the cart Is lowered until It Is level with the ground. When the door is opened, the deer steps out, sniffs the air, with his head up, and takes a sweeping glance around before he Is away like a shot. He is given flve minutes' "law," while the well trained hounds and hordes stand tremblingly Impatient to bo off In pursuit. The old English staghouuds hav'e be come extinct, and foxhounds, bred for the purpose of the chase, have suc ceeded them. So lleot are tlfty that the horses become Jaded In their ef forts to keep up with them.?Century. London Chnrcti Curloaltles. In St. Dlonis, In Fenehurch street, there are four monster syringes, which were at one time the only form of fire brigade appliances in London. The I celebrated golden tombstone In St. Katharine's, Regent's park. Is very j well known. It Is a tombstone, or. rather, a small slab of pure gold, sur j rounded by an oak frame. Many pco pie are unaware that the body of Nell I Gywnn reposes in a vault in St. Martln I ln-tbe-Fields, and a still larger number j of persona are ignorant of the fact I that beneath the same church there Is still In exlsteuce the old parish whip j ping post. Beneath St. Etheldreda's church, In Ely place. Is the only sub | terranean place of worship In London. It Is a completely furnished chapel I with sitting accommodations for 200 I people. St. Etheldreda's Is the oldest Roman Catholic church In England. Weeded a Rest. "Rest is not quitting the busy ca reer," saj*s the poet. The truth of the saying was impressed on an Arkansas family by Lulu, their colored cook. She was fat, lazy and "notional," says Har per's Magazine, but her cooking was perfect, and Mr. and Mrs. Lawton Ig nored her whims and reduced her work to minimum. Good cooks were so hard to get that the- question of adding a feather's weight to Lulu's duties was discussed in a subdued whisper. One day Lulu cesigned her position. "Why, Lulu," asked Mrs. Lawton, "what Is the matter? Is the work too hard for you?" "Well, ma'am," replied Lulu, "I'm all tired out. I'm going home and take In washing and rest up." An Aaclent Greek Relic. As a memorial of their victory in their final and desperate struggle at Palatea to hurl back the Invading east, the ancient Greeks made a tripod from the golden cups of the Persians' table and the bronze of their soldiers' armor. It bore on Its sides the names of every city whose soldiers fought and fell In the supreme moment of a nation's life. That tripod still exists at .Constantino ple, a national relic which has endured longer thun the states whose deeds it consecrated.' Quite ProMlc.
