Sheep will both feed and clothe a man, which is more than can be said of oth er farm animals. II. A. B. Marksbury & Son have bought in the last few days over 500, 000 lbs. of hemp at S3. 73. Their receipts have also baen large, last Friday they received over 93.0J0 lbs. and on Satur day over 7S,000 lbs. Some men expect a full blood sire to produce a colt after his own style and finish, without any regard to the fact that the mare is of no style or type whatever. It is not well to let your expectations outrun your common sence. A farmer can not always have things his own way, and should look at all siles of a problem. The price of wool should not influence him overmuch in his decision as to keeping sheep, for it he has a good, large, mutton sheep he is sure of a profit. Grinding the feed for the stock will soon save more than will pay for the extra labor and expense, whether one owns a hand machine or a larger one in common with a company of his neighbors; but there is such a thing as grinding too fine. Wm. Kcllcy Anderson and Monroe Ftoyd raised on the shares on the farm of C. A. Robinsoh, and delivered this week about 30,000 lbs. of hemp and they deserve the premuim for the nicest and best handleb hemp of the season. It was all a strictly No. 1. 'J he coach stallions which were just being introduced when the panic came, when bred to good trotting bred mares, have given the highest harness horses, but tiiere are so few of them.

Oar Environment at Birth and Evil I-H-ei:c" Tint May II:ive Smrouiitluil V Will lS.s Duly Considered All Men Not Crcati-d Kqu-il Uev. tor. Taliuage'ti .Sermon. Dr. Tnlmagc took for his text Mat thew vii., 2: ''With what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again."' In the greatest sermon ever preach ed a sermon about 15 minutes long, according to the ordinary rate of speech a sermon on the Mount of Olives, the preacher sitting while He spoke, according to the ancient mode of orator, the people were given to understand that the same yard-stick that they employed upon others would be employed upon themselves. Meas ure others by a- harsh rule, and you wilK be measured by a harsh rule. Measure others by a charitable rule, and you will be measured by a char itable rule. Give no mercy to others and no mercy will be given to j'ou. "With what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again." There is a great deal of unfairness in criticism in human conduct. It was to smite that unfairness that Christ ut tered the words of the text, and my sermon will be a re-echo of the divine sentiment. In estimating the mis behavior of others, we must take into consideration the pressure of circum stances. It is never right to do wrong, but there are degrees of culpabilitj'. When men misbehave or commit some atrocious wickedness we are disposed indiscriminately to tumble them all over the bank of condemnation. Suf fer they ought, and suffer they must, but in difference of degree. In the first place, in estimating the misdoing of others, we must take into calculation the hereditary tendency. There is such a thing as good blood, and there is such a thing as bad blood. There are families that have had a moral twist in them for a hundred years back. They have not been careful to keep the family record in that regard. There have been escapades, and maraudings and scoundrclisms and moral deficits all the way back, whether j-ou call it kleptomania, or pyromania or dipsomania, or whether it be in a milder form, and amount to no mania at alL The strong probability is that the present criminal started life with nerve, muscle and bone contaminated. As some start life with a natural ten dency to nobility and generosity and kindness and truthfulness, there are others who start life with just the op posite tcndenc, and they are born liars, or born malcontents, or born outlaws, or born swindlers. There is !.n England a school that is called the Princess Mary school. All the children in that school are the children of convicts. The school is under high-patronage. I had the pleas ure of being presented at one of their anniversaries, presided over by the earl of Kintore. By a wise law in England, after parents have commit ted a cirtain number of crimes, and thcreb shown themselves incompetent rightly to bring up their children, the little ones are taken from under per nicious influences and put in reform atory schools, where all gracious and kindly influences shall be brought upon them, Of course the experiment is young, and it has got to be demon strated how large a percentage of the children of convicts may be brought up to respectability and usefulness. But we all know that it is more diffi cult for children of bad parentage to do right than for children of good parentage. In this country we are taught by the declaration of American independence that all people are born equal. There never was a greater misrepresentation put in one sentence than in that sen tence which implies that we are born equal. You may as well say that flow ers are born equal, or animals are born equal. Why does one horse cost S100 and another horse cost 55,000? Why does one sheep cost S10 and another sheep cost 500? Difference in blood. We are wise enough to recognize it in Iiorses, in cattle, in sheep, but we are not wise enough to make allow ances for the difference in the human blood. Now I demand by the law of eternal fairness that you be more lenient in your criticism of those who were born wrong, in whose ancestral line there was a hangman's knot, or who came from a tree the fruit of which for centuries has been gnarled and worm-eaten. Dr. Harris, a reformer, gave some marvelous statistics in his story of a woman he called "Margaret, the mother of criminals." Ninety years ago she lived in a village in upper New York state. She was not only poor, but she was vicious. She was not well provided for. There were no alms houses there. The public however, somewhat looked after her, but chiefly scoffed at her, and derided her, and pushed her further down in crime. That was 00 j'cars ago. There have been 623 persons in that ancestral line, 200 of them criminals. In one branch of that family there were 20, and nine of them have been in state prison, and nearly all of the others have turned out badly. It is estimated that that family cost the county and state 8100,000, to say nothing of the property they destroy ed. Are j'ou not willing, as sensible, fair people, to acknowledge that it is a fearful disaster to be born in such an ancestral line? Does it not make a great difference whether one descends from Margaret, the mother of crimi nals, or from some mother in Israel? Whether you are the son of Ahab or the son of Joshua? It is a very different thing to swim with the current from what it is to swim against the current, as some of you have no doubt found in your sum mer recreation. If a man finds him self in an ancestral current, where there is good blood flowing smoothly from generation to generation, it is not a great credit to him if he turn out good, and honest, and pure, and noble. He could hardly help it. But suppose he is born in an ancestral line, in an hered itary line, where the influences have been bad, and there has been a coming down over a moral declivity, if the man surrenders to the influences he will go down under the overmastering 1 gravitation unless some supernatural aid be afforded him. Now, such a per son deserves not your excoriation, but your pity. Do not sit with the Hp curled in scorn, and with an assumed air of angelic innocence looking down upon such moral precipitation. You had better get down on your knees and first pray Almighty God for your km I ee, and next thank the Lord that you have not been thrown under the wheels of that juggernaut. In Gn at Britain and in the United States, in every generation, there are tens of thousands of persons who are fully developed criminals and incar cerated, I say in every generation. Then I snppu&a there are tens of thousands of persons not found out in their criminality. In addition to Jthese there arc, tens of thou sands of persons who, not posi tively becoming criminals, neverthe less have a criminal tendency. Anyone of all those thousands, by the grace of God may become Christian, and resist the ancestral influence, and open anew chapter of behavior; but the vast ma jority of them will not, and it becomes all men, professional, ministers of religion, judges of courts, philan thropists and Christian workers, to recognize the fact that there are these Atlantic and Pacific surges of hereditary evil rolling on through the centuries. I say of course, a man can resist this tendency, just as in the ancestral line mentioned in the first chapter of Matthew. You see in the same line in which there was a wicked Rehoboam and a desperate Manasses, there afterward came a pious Josiah and a glorious Christ. But my friends, you must recognize the fact that these influences go on from generation to generation. I am glad to know however, that a river which has pro duced nothing but miasma for a hun dred miles, may after awhile turn the wheels of factories and help support industrious and virtuous populations; and there are family lines which were poisoned that are a benediction now. At the last day it will be found out that there are men who have gone clear over into all forms of iniquity and plunged into utter abandonment, who before they yielded to the first temptation resisted more evil than many a man ho has been moral and upright all his life. But, supposing now, that in this age, when there are so many good people, that I come down into this audience and select the very best man in it. I do not mean the man who would style himself the besA, for probably he is a hj'poerite; but I mean the man who before God is really the best. I will take you out from all your Christian surroundings. I will put you in a de praved home. I will put j-ou in a cradle of iniquity. Who is bending over that cradle? An intoxicated mother. Who is that swearing in the next room? Your father. The neigh bors come in to talk, and their jokes are unclean. There is not in the house a Bible or a moral treatise but only a few scraps of an old pictorial. After awhile you are old enough to get out of the cradle, and you are struck across the head for naughtiness, but never in any kindly manner repri manded. After awhile you are old enough to go abroad, and you are sent out with a basket to steal. If you come homo without any spoil you are whip ped until the blood comes. At 15 years of age you go out to fight your own battles in this world, which seems to care no more for you than the dog that has died of a fit under the fence. You are kicked and cuffed and buf feted. Some day, rallying your cour age, you resent some wrong. A man says: "Who are you? I know who you are. Your father had free lodgings at Sing Sing. You mother, she was up for drunkenness at the criminal court. Get out of the way, you low-lived wretch!" My brother, suppose that had been the history of your advent, and the history of your earlier surround ings, would you have been the Chris tian man you are to-day, seated in this Christian assembly? I tell you nay. You would have been a vagabond, an outlaw, a murderer on the scaffold atoning for your crime. All these con siderations ought to make us merciful in our dealings with the wandering and the lost Again, I have to remark, that in our estimation the misdoing of people who have fallen from high respectability and usefulness, we must take into con sideration the conjunction of circum stances. In nine cases out of ten the man who goes astray does not intend any positive wrong. He has trust funds. He risks a part of these funds in investment He says, "Now, if I should lose that investment I have of my own property five times as much, and if this investment should go wrong I could easily make it up; I could five times make it up." With that wrong reasoning he goes on and makes an investment, and it does not turn out quite as well as he expected. and he makes another investment, and strange to say at the same time all his other affairs get entangled, and all his other resources fail, and his hands arc tied. Now he wants to extricate him self. He goes a little further on in the wrong investment He takes a plunge further ahead, for he wants to save his wife and children, he wants to save his home, he wants to save his member ship in the church. He takes one more plunge and all is lost Some morning at 10 o'clock the bank door is not opened, and there is a card on the door signed by an officer of the bank, indicating there is trouble, and the name of the defaulter or the de frauder heads the newspaper column and hundreds of men say: "Good for him;" hundreds of other men say: "I'm glad he's found out at last;" hundreds of other men say: "Just as I told you;"' hundreds of other men say: "We couldn't possibly have been tempted to do that no conjunction of circumstances could ever" have over thrown me;" and there is a superabund ance of indignation, but no pity. The heavens full of lightning but not one drop of dew. If God treated us as so ciety treats that man we would all have been in hell long ago! Wait for the alleviating circum stances. Perhaps he may have baen the dupe of others. Bafore you let all the hounds out from their kennel to maul and tear that man, find out if he has not been brought up. in a commer cial establishment where there was a wrong system of ethics taught; find out whether that man has not an ex extravagant wife who is not satisfied with his honest earnings, and in the temptation to please her he has gone into that ruin into which enough men have fallen and by the same temptation, to make a procession of many miles. Perhaps some sudden sickness may have touched his brain, and his judgment may be unbalanced. He is wrong, he is awfully wrong, and he must be condemned, but there may be mitigating circumstances. Perhaps under the same temptation you might have fallen. The reason some men do not steal 8200,000 is because they do not get a chancel Hare righteous indigna tion you must about that man's con duct, but temper it with mercy. uut yon say: "J am gorry tnat-tr j innocent should 'suffer. es, I am, too sorry for the widows and orphans .vho lost their all by that defalcation. I am sorry also for the Lu auess men, the honest business men, who have had their affairs all crippled by that defal cation. I am sorry for the vener able Lank 1 resident to whom the credit of that bank was a matter of pride. Yes, I am sorry also for that man who brought all the distres-; sorry that he sac rificed body, mind, soul, reputation, Heaven, and went into the blackness of darkness forever. You defiantly say: "I could not be tempted in that way." Perhaps you may be tested after awhile. God has a very good memory, and He sometimes seems to say: "This man feels so strong in his innate power and goodness he shall be tested; he is so full of bitter invective against that unfortunate it shall bo shown now whether he has the power to stand." Fifteen years go by. The wheel of fortune turns several times, and you are in a crisis that you never could have anticipated. Now, all the powers of darkness come around, and they chuckle and they chatter and they say: "Aha! here is the old fellow who was so proud of his integrity, and who bragged he couldn't be overthrown by temptation, and was so "uproarious in his demonstrations of indignation at the defalcation 15 years ago. Let us see!" God lets the man go. God, who had kept that man undi;r His protecting care, lets the man go, and try for him self the majesty of his integrity. God letting the man go, the powers of dark ness pounce upon him. I see you some day in your office in great excitement One of two things you can do. Bo honest, and be pauperized, and have your children brought home from school, your family dethroned in social influence. The other thing is, you can step little aside from that which is right, you can only just go half an inch out of the proper path, you can only take a little risk, and then you have all your finances fair and right. You will have a large property. You can leave a fortune for your chil dren, and endow a college, and build a public library in your nativj town. You halt and wait, and halt and wath until your lips get white. You decide to risk it Only a few strokes of the pen now. But, oh, how your hand trembles how dreadfully it trembles! Iho die is cast. By tha strangest and most awful conjunction of circumstance any one could hava imaged you are prostrated. Bankrupt cy, commeraial annihilation, exposure, crime. Good men mourn and devils hold carnival, and you s.'e your own name at tne ncad 01 the newspaper column in a whole congress of exclam ation points; and while you are read' ing the anathema in the rcportorlal and editorial paragraph it occurs to you how much this story is like that of the defalcation 15 years ago, and a clap of thunder shakes the window sill. saying: " ith what measure ye meto it shall be measured to you again!' You look in another direction. There is nothing like conditions of temper to put a man to disadvantage. You, a man with fine pulses and a fine digesttion and perfect health, can not understand how any body should be capsiz.'d in temper by an infinitesimal annoyance. You say: "I couldn't be unbalanced in that way." Perhaps you smile at a provocation that makes an other man swear. rou pnae yourscll on vour imperturability. You say with your manner, though you have too much good taste to say it with your words' "I have a great deal more sense than that man has; I have a great deal more equipoise of temper than that man has; I never could make such pureile exhibition of myself as that man has made."

Our plan is a new application of an old principle, and is based up on the actual experience of successful life insurance companies, cover ing a period of over 200 years. The same principles govern both, only WE pay while you L,1VE. THEY pay when you DIE. 1 WE offer the INVESTMENT features. THEY protect in case of DEATH. With them, death is the moving factor, causing the payment of the policy; with us, a definite and fixed mathemalical rule, in lieu of death, matures the policy. INSURANCE IS A LAW OF AVERAGE. They figure on so many men out of a thousand dying we figure on so many policies, They kill the man we kill the policy. There is no reason why a man should die to reap the hen flti of his investment. We return an average of $2.30 for every dollar paid us, and yet we assume an obligation less than one-third as great as has been assumed and paid for years by the leading life insurance companies of America. HJJfcC MISSION. Only about twenty (20) per cent, of the people are insuiable. $nly the ; sound and healthy, who least need it's advantages, can obtain Hfe insurance. Why should there not be a means provided whereby the other eighty (80) per cent, of the population can carry an invest ment the same as the favored few who can get life insurance? Our mis sion is to open the door to the entire population to enjoy the same or greater benefits for an equal or less expenditure, considering the ad vantage to be derived, and that those advantages maybe enjoyed during life by the one making l:ic investment. NOTHING SUCCEEDS LIKE SUCCESS. LP That our plan is popular and based upon sound business princi ples, is evidenced by our large and increasing membership, as shown by our remarkable 'Exhibit of Growth, See literature. We court the clysest scrutiny and most thoroug investigation. No statement made that cannot be verified by actual results. Others Make Money. Why Not You?
