The Jews are much more exempt
from tubercle than any other race,
and there is little doubt, says a med

tion is due to the great care exercised
in the choice and dressing of their
meat.
It is said that some of the inhabi
tants of Venice those that have nev
er been to the n.aiuland have never
in their lives seen a horse. A show
man once took a horse to Venetian fair
and placed him on exhibition as a
monster, and many factory hands paid
a shilling each to see him.
A number of Eastern horsemen will
be in Kentucky shortly to look up a
lot of good horses for the Eastern mar
ket. Our horsemen should get their
horses in good sale condition, and be
ready for those buyers when they ar
rive. While horses are scarce here,
we ought to be able to supply a fair
demand.
Insects and diseases are compelling
market gardeners to adopt better ro

manures to maintain the fertility of

gest that crops nearly allied should
not follow each other, even though
the gardner must somewhere grow
what the market demands.
The horses which are desirable for
heavy work, or for riding or driving,
will never be superseded by mechan
ical powers. It is the common bred
horse which is deteriorating year by
year, for the lines of work in which
such horses have been employed are
now largely performed by electricity.
Se me orchards are nearly ruined by
having a crop of hay taken off them
in dry weather. Cultivation should
be kept up for the first six or seven
yeais; then we should sow to red clo
ver, mowing three or four times a year,
and allowing the grass to remain on
the ground to hold moisture in sum
mer and to act as a protecting mulch
in winter.
A Russian physician examined a
number of students with legard to
their health, as affected by smoking.
Of the smokers 10.09 per cent were
found to have some affection of the
respiratory tract, while only 10.09 of
the non-smokers were thus affected.
In respect to diseases of the alimen
tary tract, the figures were respect
fully 1L88 and 9.92 per cent; and of
both tracts combined 8.77 and 3.22 per
cent.
The American Stock Farm, of Lex
ington, says: The condition of affairs
in Kentucky in the matter of breeding
is much improved from the last two
seasons. Owners of stallions report,
already, a good booking, and, judging
from the feeling among breeders con
cerning the inquiries about young trot
ters, the business is decidedly on the
mend. That the demand is great
there can be no doubt, still less is
there any doubt that the supply is very
limited. For this reason breeders are
bound to anticipate the future, and to
do this they must get foals, and there
fore it is reasonable to suppose that
many more mares will be bred this
season than for several of those past
The fact that so many large studs are
soon to be dispersed does not mean
the mares now owned in them will not
be mated this year, for their new own
ers are more likely to breed them than
their present ones. That is what they
will buy them for. The large percent
age, of brood mares in the State ol
Kentucky are owned by breeders with
small studs, having an average of not
more than five or ten mares, or even
less, and these men are, as a rule,
farmers who having passed through a
most successful harvest and seeing
that the business is on the mend will
mate their mares this year. The
younger generation of stallions will
hive great opportunities this season.
Not only have many of them done well
with their youngsters that have been
on the tracks, but thoughtful breeders
are beginning to believe that a better
bred, better looking and faster son of
his sire will out breed the parent
The successes of Allerton, Axtell, Bow
Bells and others have incited breeders
to look to the fast young stallions for
the best results to be had in breeding.

Unnry Often Turned to Call Ir. Talmnc

Dr. Talmage's text Sunday was: I
Samuel xiv.. 43: "1 did but tasto a lit
tle honey with the end of the rod that
was in my hand, and. lo, I must ui .
The honey bee is a incbt ingeuious
architect, a Christopher Wren among
insects; geomater drawing hexagons
and pentagons, a freebooter robbing
the fields of pollen and annua, won
drous creature of Cod whose bi
ography, written b3' Iluber and Swam
merJam, is an enchantment for any
lover of nature. Virgil celebrated the
bee in his fable of Arista us; and
Moses and Samuel and David, Jhd Solo
mon, and Jeremiah, and Ezckiel, and
St. John usjd the delieasies of bee
manufacture as a Bible symbol.
A miracle, of formation is the
bee; five eyes. two tongues,
the outer having a hheath of
protection, hairs on all sides of its
tiny bodj' to brush up the particles of
tlowers, its flight so straight that all
the world knows of the bee line. The
honej--comb is a palace such as none
but Uod could plan and the honey-bee
construct; its cells, sometimes a dormi
tory and sometimes a storehouse, and
fcometimes a cemetery. Those winged
toilers lirst make eight strips of wax,
and by their antennae, which are to
them hammer and ehisel, and square
and plumb line, fashion them for use.
Two and two the& workers shape the
wall. If an accident happens, they
put up buttresses of extra beams
to remedy the damage. When
about the year 1770 an insect before
unknown in the night time attacked
the beehives sill over Europe and the
men who owned Hum v.vre vain
t-ing to plan something to Ja-sp out
the invader that was the terror of the
bee-hives of the continent, it was
found that everywhere the bees had
arranged for their own protection and
built before their honej'-combs an es
pecial wall of wax through which the
bees might go to and fro. but not large
enough to admit tlirt winged comba
tants, called the Sphinx Atropos.
Do you know that the swarming of
the bees is divinely directed"? The
mother bee starts for a new heme, and
because of this the other bees of the
hive get into an excitement which
raises the heat of the hive 60inj four
degrees, and they must die unless they
leave their heated apartment, and
they follow the mother bee and alight
on the branch of a tree and cling to
each other and hold on until a commit
tee of two or three bees have explored
the region and found the hollow of a
tree cr rock not far off from a stream
of water, and they here set up a new
colony and pl' their aromatic indus
tries and give themselves U tins manu
facture of the saccharine edible. Rut
who can tell the chemistry of that mix
ture of sweetness, part of it the very
life of the bee and part of it the life of
the fields?
Plenty of this luscious product was
hanging in the woods of Bethaven dur
ing the time of Saul and Jonathan.
Their army was in pursuit of an en
emy that by God's command must be
exterminated. The soldiery were pos
itively forbidden to stop to eat any
thing until the work was done.
If they disobej'ed they were accursed.
Coming through the woods they found
a place where the bees had been busy
a great honey manufactory, s. Jfoney
gathered in the hollow of the trees un
til it had overflowed upon the ground
in great profusion and sweetness. All
the army obe3-ed orders and touched it
not save Jonathan, and he, not know
ing the military order" about absti
nence, dipped the end of a stick he had
in his hand into the eandied liquid,
and as yellow and tempting it glowed
on the eud of the stick he put it to his
mouth and ate the honey. Judgment
fell upon him, and but for special in
tervention he would have been slain.
In my text Jonathan announces his
awful mistake: "I did but taste a little
honey with the end of the rod that was
in my hand, and lo! I must die." Alas!
what multitudes of people in all ages
have been damaged by forbidden hon
ey, by which I mean temptation, de
licious and attractive, but damaging
and destructive!
Corrupt literature, fascinating but
deathful, comes in this category.
Where one good, .honest, healthful
book is read now, there is a hundred
made up of rhetorical trash consumed
with avidity. When the boys on the
cars come through with a pile of publi
cations, look over the titles and notice
that nine out of ten books are injuri
ous. All the way from here to Chicago
or New Orleans notice that objection
able books dominate. Taste for pure
literature is poisoned by this scum of
the publishing house. Every book in
which sin triumphs over virtue, or
in which a glamour is thrown over
dissipation, or which leaves you
at its last line with less respect
for the marriage institution and less
abhorrence for the paramour, is a de
pression of your own moral character.
The book bindery may bo attractive,
and the plot dramatic and startling,
and the style of writing sweet as the
honey that Jonathan took up with his
rod, but your best interests forbid it,
your moral safety forbids it, your God
forbids it, and one tase may lead -to
such bad results that you may have to
say at the close of the experiment, or at
the close of a misimproved lifetime: "I
did but taste a little honey with the
rod that was in my hand, and, lo, 1
must die."
Corrupt literature is doing more to
day for the disruption of domestic life
than any other cause. Elopements,
marital intrigues, sly correspondence,
fictitious names given at post office
windows, clandestine meetings at
parks, and at ferry gates, and in hotel
parlors, and conjugal perjuries are
among the ruinous results. When a
woman, young or old, gets her head
thoroughly stuffed with the modern
novel she is in appalling peril.
But some one will say: "The
heroes arc so adroitly knavish, and the
heroines so bewitchingly untrue, and
the turn of the story so exquisite, and
all the characters so enrapturing, I
can not quit them." My brother, my
sister, you can find styles of literature
just as charming that will elevate, and
purify, and enoble, and Christianize
while they please. The devil don't own
all the honey. There is a wealth of
good books coming forth from our
publishing houses' that leave no excuse

bauching to body, mind andsouL

decide everything for this world-an.s
the next. It was a turning point with
pic when, in a bookstore in Syracuse!
one day, I picked up a book called
"The Beauties of lludtin.'' It was only
a book of extracts, but it was all pure
Jioncy, and 1 was not satislie.l until 1
liad purchased all his works, at that
time expensive beyond an easy capac
ity to own them, and with what le
light I went through reading his
'Seven Lamps of Architecture" and
his "Stones of Venice" it is impossible
forme to describe, except by siying
that it gave me a rapture for good
books that will last me while my life
lasts. All around the chureh and th
world to-day there are bn-y hives of
intelligence occuit'l by authors and
Kiuhojvsse.s from whos p-ns drip a
distillation which is the very nectar of
Heaven, and why will you thrust your
rod of inquis'.tivencss into the tU ath
ful saccharine of perdition?
Stimulating liquids also come into
th! category of temptations delicious
but deathful. Yon say, "l can not
bear the taste of i.i toxica ting liquor,
and how any man can like it Is to ine
an amazement." Well, then, it is no
credit to you that you do not take it.
Do not brag about your total absti
nence, because it is not from any prin
ciple that you reject alcoholism, but
for the reason that you re;eet certain
btyles of food j-ou simply don't like
the taste of them. But multitudes of
people have a natural fondness for all
kinds of intoxicants. They like it so
much that it makes them smack their
lips to look at it. They are tlyspeptic
and they like to aid digestion; or they
ure annoyed by insomnia, and they
take it to produce sleep; or they are
troubled, and they take it to make
them oblivious; or they feel hippy, and
they must celebrate their hilarity, ,
They begin with mint julip sucked
through two straws on the Long
Branch piazza and end in the ditch,
faking from a jug a liquid half kero
oene pijd half whisky. Thej not only
like it. but it is a null-consuming passion
of body, mind and haul, and after a
while" have it they will, though one wine
glass of it should cost the temporal
and eternal destruction of themselves,
and all their families, and the whole
jiuiaan race. They would say: "I am
sorry it is going to e;ost me and my
family and all the world's population
so much, but here it goes to my lips, and
now let it roll over my parched tongiiQ
and down my heated throat, the sweet
est, the most inspiring, the most de
licious draught that ever thrilled
a human frame." To cure the
habit before it comes to its
last stages various plans were
tried in olden t.mes. This plan was
recommended in the books. When a
man wanted to reform he put shot or
bullets into the enp of strong drink
one additional shot or bullet each daj-,
that tlisplaced so much liquor. BuUet
after bullet, added day by day, of
course the lienor became less and less
until the bullets would entirely fill up
.he glass, and there was no room for
the liejuid, and by that time it was said
the inebriate would be cured. Wheth
er anyone ever was cared in that way
I know not, but by long experiment it
is founil that the only way is to slop
short off, and when a man does that
he needs God to help him. And there
have been more cases than you can
count when God has so helped the man
that he left off the drink forever; and
I could count a score of them, some of
them pillars in the house of God.
One would suppose that men would
take warning from some of the omin
ous names given to the intoxicants and
stand off from the devastating influ
ence. You have noticed, for instance,
that some of the restaurants are called
"The Shades," typical of the fact that
it puts a man's reputation in the shade,
anel his morals in the shade, and his
prosperity in the shade, and his wife
and children in the shade, and his im
mortal destiny in theshade. Now, find,
on some of the liquor signs in all our
cities the words ''Old Crow," mightily
suggestive of the carcass and the filthy
raven thatswoopsupon it. ' Old Crow!"
Men and women without num
bers slain of rum, but unbu-ied, and
this evil is pecking at their glazed
eyes, and pecking at their bloated
cheek, and pecking at their destroyed
manhood and womanhood, thrusting
beak and claw into the mortal remains
of what was once gloriously alive, but
now morally dead. "Old Crow!" But
alas! how many take no warning.
They make me think of Cassnr on his
ivay to assassination fearing nothing;
though his statue in the hall crashed
mto fragments at his feet, and a scroll
containing the names of the conspira
tors was thrust into his hands, yet
walking right on to meet the dagger
hat was to take his life. This infatu
ation of strong drink is so might . in
:nany si man that, though his fortunes
.ire crashing, and his health is crash
ing, and his dometic interests are
crashing, and we hand him a long
scroll containing the names of perils
ihat await him, he goes straight on to
physical, and mental, and moral assas
sination. In proportion as any style
Df alcoholism is pleasant. to your taste
and stimulating to your nerves, and
for a time delightful to all your phys
ical and mental constitution, is the
peril awful. Remember Jonathan and
the forbidden houey in the woods of
Bethaven.
Furthermore, the gamester's indul
gence must be put in the list of temp
tations delicious but destructive. You
who have crossed the ocean many
times have noticed that always one of
the best rooms has, from morning till
late at night, been given up to gam
bling practices. 1 heard of men who
went on board with enough for a
European excursion jvhe? .!&.n(iPjl with
out money lo get their baggage up to
the hotel jr railroad station.
To many there is a complete fascina
tion in games of hazard or the risking
of money on possibilities. It seems as
naturul for them to bet as to eat. In
deed the hunger for food is often over
powered by the hunger for .wagers.
It is absurd for those of us who
have never felt the fascination of
the wager to speak slightingly of
the temptation. It has slain a multi
tude of intellectual and moral
giants, men :ind women stronger
than you or I. Down under its
power went glorious Oliver Goldsmith
and Gibbon, the famous historian, and
Charles Fox, the renowneil statesman,
and in olden times senators of tha
United Stat, s, who used to be as regu
larly at the gambling house all night
as they were in the halls of legislation
b3 day. Oh, the tragedies of the faro
table! I know persons who began
with a slight stake in a ladies' parlor
and ended with the suicide's pistol
at Monte Carlo. They played with
the square pieces of bone with black
marks on them, not knowing that Sa
tan was playing for their bones at the
same time, and was sure to sweep all
the s'akes off on his side of the table.
S.ate legislatures have again and again
sanctioned the mighty evil by passing
laws in defense of race tracks, and
many young men have lost all their
wages at suli so-called "meetings."
Every man who voted for such infa
in mis bills has on his Juinds and fore
head the blood (if those souls.
But in this connection some young
converts say tt m,-: "Js it right to
play cards? Is there any harm in a
game of whist or euchre?" Well. I know
good men who play whist and euehro
and other styles of games without any
waters. 1 had a frien I who played
cards with his wife and children and
then at the close said: "Come now, let
us have pray rs." I will not judga
other men's con.sci -nees, but I
t;ll you that carl are in
my ntlnd so associated with
the temporal and spiritual ruin of
splendid young men. that I would as
soon say to my family: "Come, let us
haye a game of cards," as I would gq
into a menagerie and say: ''Come, let
is have a game of rattlesnakes," or in
to a ceiiii-tcry, and sitting down by a
marble slab, say to the grave diggers:
"Come, lot us have a game at skulls."'
Conscientious young ladies are silently
saying: "Doyou think card playing will
do us any harm?" Perhaps not, but
how will you feel if in the great day of
eternity, when we are aoked to give.
:m account of our influence, some man
should say: "J was, introduced te
games of chance in the year 189$. at
your house, and I went on from that
sport to something more exeiting, and
wont on down until I lost my business,
and lost my morals, and lost my soul,'
and ihese chains that yon sea on my
wrists aad feet are the chain.! of a
gamester's doom and I am on my way
to a gambler's hell." Ifoijey at thj
start, eternal ealastrophy at the last.
The poet llesiod tells of an ambrosia
and a nectar, the drinking of which
-would make men live forever, and one
sip of the honey from the eternal rock
will give you eternal life with Clod.
Come ofl" the malarial levels of a sin
ful life. Come and live on the uplands
of gra"e, where the vineyards sun
thems-lves. ' Oh, ta-te nal see that
the Lord is gracious!" Be happy now
and happy forever. For those who
take a different course the honey will
turn to gall. For many things 1 have ad
mired Percy Shelley, the great English
poet, bat I deplore tjie fact that i
eecmed a great sweetness to him
to dishonor Gol. The poem
"Queen Mab" has in it the maligning
of the Deity. Shelley was impious
enough to ask for Rawland Hill's snr-
' ivy Chapel that he mighi denounce the
Christian religion, lie was in great
glee against God anel the truth. But ho
visited Italy, and one day on the Mod
iterrancan with two friends in a boat
which was 24 feet long he was coming
toward the shore when an hour's squall
struck the water. A gentleman
standing on shore through a glass
saw many boats tossed in this squall,
but all outrode the storm except one,
in which Shelley and his two friends
were sailing. That never came ashore,
but the bodies of two of the occupants
were washed up on tha beach, one of
them the poet. A funeral pyre was
built on the seashore by some classic
friends and the two bodies were con
sumed. Poor Shelley! lie would have
no God while he lived, and I fear had
no God when he died. "The Lord
knoweth the way of the righteous, but
the way of the ungodly shall perish."
Beware of the forbidden honev!"

Rev. J. V. Riley, of Mortonsville, Ky., says: "I have had an investment
in the Southern Mutual Investment Co., of Lexington, Ky., for more than three
years. I have had 23 coupons to mature by redemption, which cost me less
than SoOJ.OD, and returned to me 1,410,00."
, . Lkxixqtox, Ky., September 10, 1S97.
To whom it may concern.
This is to yertify, that my husband, W. F. White, about three years ago, in
vested in tho Southern Mutual Investment Co. Since that time there have

, "Meantime, we prefer to take
our chance with the conservative dem
ocrats, fighting within the party, to
reform it of its excesses, and to restore
it to its better uses, than to pursue an
ignis fattus which, if it had ben more
real, would have resulted in thu elec
tion, instead of the defeat, of the free
silver fusion in lS'JG, and which, with
singular unanimity, the voters have
refused to follow. The Courier
Journal is a democrat, not a republi
can; and it will under no circumstac-ce-s
or conditions pursue a policy whese
only Effect is to continue the republi
can party in power."
