Doar Sir: A piece appeared in several pa per some weeks ago stating Mr. Greene of our firm had bought 23,000 lambs in the state of Kentucky, and had an option of 1500D, which would virtually corner the Iamb trade, as there were only 40,000 lambs in central and Soth trn Kentucky. We wish you would have your paper deny this statement as it does our firm a 1 injustice, for we do only a commiss ion business. Mr. Greene or any mem ber of our firm has not bought or caus ed to be bought any lambs and we nev er buy any stock in the country. We would further say that in stead of there being only 40.000 lambs in central and southern Kentucky there are over 30, 000.

It is too early to foretell the effect of the war between the United States and Spain on the agricultural and live stock industry. Assistant Secretary of Agriculture Bringhsm can see no ma terial good that can result to the farm er. A prolonged war would doubtless rlse the price of breadstuff $ and pro visions, which indirectly would be to the advantage of the producer, but in that event it is probable that the farm er would be required to pay higher prices for the articles he needs. None but a prophet can foresee the end at this time. It may be pointed out that most of our export cattle and meat trade goes under the British flag, and hence would be expected to suffer no great interruption. Tho American lin ers which have been chartered by tho United States Government have a car rying capacity for meats equal to about 1,000 cattle per week, but room can probably be found in bottoms flying other flags to take our export stuff. The price of wheat has been pushed up and previsions have advanced. Breed er's Gazette. Doctors Can't Cure It! Contagious blood poison is absolutely beyond the skill of the doctors.

S. is the only cure for this terrible affliction, because it is the only remedy which goes direct to the cause of the disease and forces it from the system. I was afflicted with Blood Poison, and the best doctors did me no Rood, though I took their treatment laltn fally. In fact, I seemed to cet worse all the while. I took almost every so-called blood remedy, but they didnot seem to reach the dis ease, and had no effect whatever. I was dis heartened, for it seemed that I would never br . cured.

Farmers are urged by Carrol county tobacco growers to arrange a meeting at the Court House next ecu ity c )u. t Jay here to consider the grave situa tion arising from the proposed gigan tic trust of tobacco manufacturers The case in this, say there gentle men: Ihe American Tobacco Co., a $25,000,000 concern, is trying to absorb all other manufactories of tobacco, by getting them into a new and larger trust, to be known as the Continental Tobacco Co. and capitalized at fifty millions. All the manufactories that amount to anything have signed a willingness to go into it, save the Liggett & Myers Co., of St Louis, and a few other con cerns. If that company should enter the combine no doubt all others would. The Liggett & Myers Co- is being offer ed every inducement: they have refus ed ten million dollars cash for their plant, and in addition will stay out of of the monopoly. If this company joins the trust there will no longer be any competition. The terrible monopoly can then say we will give just so much for your to bacco and no more; the farmer will be at its mercy and m:iy have to starve. Furthermore, the monster can say to the consumer everywhere: You pay our price for plug tobacco, smoking tobacco, etc , or do with out and the price will hi knocked a-kelter. It will thus be seen that it is a mon opoly that can exert its grinding pow er in two directions, with most disas trous consequences. At the meeting proposed farmers will, doubtless, pass resolutions warm ly endorsing the independent compan ies for the stand taken, and urging them to stand firm. Resolution calling for legislation to proteet farmers and consummers from such a monopoly will also be passed. 1 he farmere are urged to act next County Court Day and act decisively: The Carrol county people are aroused and are pushing the fight Excursion Lexington to see our troops in Camp.

Stormes' Drug Store j lm GLOKIOUS CHRISTIANITY.1 A Religion That Offers No Apology and Deals Vigorously Willi the IfUor tlio-Worlrt-Tlie Incisions rV fM-.lttiMi ll: Itiililly Mi'laiid l'minpt ly lteulsutl by tin: 1'orces of 'I'll Is Mew Itclief. This discourse of Dr. Talmage is rev olutionary for good in families, and rliiirciii'.s, and nations, and especially impropriate for this time. Text, Acts xvii., 0: "Tliefce that have turned lie world upside down are come hithei -Jso." Thro is a wild, bellowing mob a 1 011 rid the house of Jason, in Tliessa liaiiea. What lias the mail douu so greatly to offend the people? He has been entertaining Paul and his com rades. The mob .surround the house and cry, "llring nut those turbulent preachers! They are interfering with our business. They are ruining our religion! Thuj- are actually turning the world upside down!" The charge was true; for there is nothing that so iiiU-rfen: with sin, there is nothing so ruinous to every form of established iniquity, there is nothing that has such tendency to turn the. world upside down, as our glorious Christianity. The fact is that tho world now is wrong side up, and it needs to be turned upside down in order that it may be rightside up. Tins time was when men wrote books en titling them "Apologies for Christian ity." 1 hope that day lias passed. Wo want no more apologies for Christian ity. Let the apologies be on the part, of those who do not believe in our religion. Wo do not mean to make any compromise in the matter. We do not wish to hide the fact that Christianity is revolutionary, and that its tendency is to turn the world upside down. Our religion has often been misrepresented as a prin ciple of tears, and mildness, and fasti diousness; afraid of crossing peo ple's prejudices; afraid of mak ing somebody mad; with silken gloves, lifting the people up from tho church pew into glor3 as though they were Itohcmiaii glass, so very delicate that with one touch it may Iks demolished forever. Men speak of religion "as though It were a refined imbecility; as though it were a spiritual chloroform, that the people were to take until the sharp cuttings of life were over. The llible, so far from this, represents the religion of Christ as robust and brawnej ran sacking and unsetting ten thousand things Chat now seem to be set tled on firm foundations. I hear some man in the house say, "I thought re ligion was peace." That is the final result A man's arm Is out of place. Two men come, and with great effort put it back to the socket It goes back with great pain. Then he gets well. Our world is horribly disordered and out of joint It must come under nn omnipotent surgery, beneath which there will bo j uln and anguish before there can como perfect health and quiet I proclaim, therefore, In the name of my lord Jesus Christ Revolu tion! The religion of the T.iblc will make a revolution in the family. Those things that are wrong in the family circle will be overthrown by it, while justice and harmony will take the place. The husband will be the head of the household only when he is fit to be. I know a man who spends all the money he makes in drink, as well as all the money that his wife makes; and sometimes sells the children's clothes for rum. Do you tell me that he is fit to hi the head of that household? if the wife have more nobility, more courage, more of all that is right, she shall have the supremacy. You say that the ISible says that the wife is to be subject to the husband. I know it I!ut that is a husband, not a musculinc caricature. There is no human or di vine law that makes a woman subordi nate to a man unworthy of her. When Christianity comes into a domestic circle, it will give the doininancy to that one who is the most worthy of it As religion comes in at the front door, mirth aad laughter will not go out of the back door. It will not hop nle the children's feet. John will laugh just as loud; and George will jump higher than he ever did before, It will steal from the little ones neither ball nor bate, nor hoop nor kite. It will establish a family altar. Ansrels will hover over it Ladders of lig-ht will reach down to it The glory of Heaven will stream upon it The books of remembrance will record it; and tides of everlasting blessedness will pour from it Not such a family altar as you may have seen, where the prayer is long, and long chapter is read, with tedi ous explanation, and the exercise keeps on until the children's knees are sore, and their backs ache, and their patience is lost, and for the seventh time they have counted all the rungs in the chair; but I mean a family altar such as may have been seen in your father's house. You may have xvan dered far off in the paths of sin and darkness; but you have never forgotten that family altar where father and mother knelt, importuning God for your soul. That is a memory that a man never gets over. There will be n hearty, joyful family altar in every do mestic circle. You will not have to go far to find Hannah rearing her Sam uel for the temple, or a grandmother Lois instructing her limothy in the knowledge of Christ, or a Mary, and Martha, and Lazarus gathered in fra ternal and sisterly affection, or a ta ble at which Jesus sits, as at that of Zacchcus, or a home in which Jesus dwells, as in the house of Simon the tanner. The religion of Jesus Christ coming into the domestic circle, will overthrow all jealousies, all janglings; and peace, and order, and holiness will take possession of the home. Again: Christianity will . produce a revolution In commerciarclrgies. r jna roe 53 merchants, and you find that they have 50 standards of what is right and wronsr. You say to some one about a merchant. "Is he honest?" "Oh! yes," the man says, "he is hon est, but he, grinds- the faces of his clerks. He.is.honest but he -exaggerates the -value of his goods. He is honest, but1 he' loans money on bond and mortgage, with the understanding that the mortgage cam lie quiet for ten years, but as soon 'as he gets the mortgage- he records it aqd btf. srins a foreclosure suit', add the sheriff's .writ comes.' down; "and- the day of sale arrives, and. away goes the homestead, and the creditor buvs it in at half price." Honest? when he loaned the money he knew that he would get the homestead at half price. Honest? but be goes to the insurance office to get policy ou his life, and tells the doctor that he is well, when lie knows that for ten years lie lias had but one lung. Honest? H.oiil'Ii lu sells j roperty by the map, forgetting to tell the purchaser that Ihe ground is all under water; but it is peueiiuis 111 him to do 'that, for he throws the water ;nto the bargain. All! my friends, there is but one standard of the everlasting right and of the everlasting wrong, and that is the ISibhs, ami when that principle shall get. in its pry under our commer cial houses, I liel.eve that, one-half of thmii will go over. '.' he ruin will bv- iu at one end of the street and it will crash! crash! crash! all the way down to the docks. "What is the inatU'r'.' Has there been a fall in gold?" "Oh. no. 'lias there lieeu a new tariHV No." "Has there been a failure in crops?'' No." "Has there been an unaccountable panic?" "No." Thi.s is the secret: The Lord God has setup His throne of judgment, in the exchange. He has summoned the righteous and the wicked to come before him. What was 18:57? A day of judgment! What was 1857? A day of judgment! What was the extreme depression of two years ago? A day of judgment! Do you think that God is going to wait until He has burned the world up be fore He rights these wrongs? 1 fell you nay! Every day is a day of judg ment The fraudulent man piles up his gains; bond upon bond, United States security above United States security, emolument above emolument, until his property has become a great pyra mid; and as he. stands looking at it, he thinks it. can never be destroyed: but the Lord God comes, and with His little linger pushes it. all over. You build a house and you ut into it a rotten beam. A mechanic stand ing by says: "It will never do to put that beam in; it will ruin your whole building." ISut 3011 put it in. The house is completed. Soon it begins to rock. You call in the mechanic and ask: "What is the matter with this door? What is the matter with thi wall? Everything seems to be giving out." Says the mechanic: "You put a rotten beam into that strr 2ture. and the whole thing has got to come down." Hero, is an estate that seems to be all right now. It has been building a greijt. many years. Hut 15 years ago there was a dishonest trans action 111 that commercial house. That one dishonest transaction will keep on working ruin in the whole structure, until down the estate will come in wreck and ruin about the possessor's ears one dishonest dollar in the es tate demolishing all his possessions. I have seen it again mid again; and so have yon. Here is your, money-safe. The manufacturer and yourself only know how it can be opened. Yon have the key. You can touch the lock and the ponderous door swings back. ISut let me tell you that, however firm ly bolted your money -sa'e may be, yon can not keep God out lie will come, somo day, into your counting room, aud Ho will donmnd. "Whcro did that note of hand como from? How do you account for this security? Where did you get that mortgage from? What does this mean?" If it is all right God will sa1: "Well done, good and faith full servant He prospered in this world. I5e happy in the world to come." If it is all wrong He will say: "Depart, ye cursed. He miserable for your iniquities in this life; and then go down and spend 3011 r eternit3 with thieves, and horse jockeys, aud pick pockets." You have an old photograph of the signs on 3our street Why have those signs nearl3 all changed within the last 20 3'cars? Does the passing away of a generation account-for it? Oh, no. Does the fact that there are hundreds of honest men who go down ever3 year account for it? Oh, no. This is the secret: The Lord God has been walk ing through the commercial streets of our great cities, and He has been ad justing things according to the prin ciples of eternal rectitude. The time will come when, through the revolutionary power of this Gos pel, a falsehood, instead of beingealled exaggeration, equivocation and eva sion; will be branded a lie! And steal ings, that now sometimes go under the head of percentages and commissions, and bonuses, will be put into the cata logue of state prison offenses. Societ3 will be turned inside out and upside down, and ransacked of God's truth, until business dishonesties shall come to an end and all double dealing; and God will overturn, and overturn, and overturn; and commercial men in all cities will throw up their hands, cod ing out, "These that have turned the world upside down are come hither." The religion of Jesus Christ will produce a revolution in our churches. The noncommittal, do-nothing policy of the church of God will give waj to a spirit of bravest conquest. Viity in this day seems to me to be salted down just so as to keep. It seems as if the church were chiefl3 anxious to take care of itself; and if we hear of want, and squalor, aqd heathenism outside, we say, "What a pity!" aqd we put our hands in our pockots, and wo feel around for a two-cent piece, and with a great flourish wo put it upon the plate, and are amazed that the world is hot converted in six weeks. Supr pose there were a great war: and there were 300.000 soldiers, Jbut of all those 300.000 soldiers, excepting 10 men, were in their tents, or scouring their mus kets, or cooking rations. You would say. "Of course defeat must come in that case." It is worse than that in the church. Millions of the professed soldiers of Jesus Christ are ccoking rations, or asleep in their tents, while onl3 one man here and there goes out to do battle for the Lord. "But" says some one. "we are estab lishing a great many missi ns. and I think they xvill save the masses." No,, they will not do it They are doing a magnificent work, but every mission chapel is a confession of the disease and weakness of , the church. It is waking a dividing line be tween the classes. It Is saying to the rich aqd to the well conditioned: "If you can pay' your pew rents come to the' main audience room." It is say ing to the poor man: "Your coat is too bad and ycur shoes are not good enough. If you want to get to Heaven you;wilI have to go by the way of the mission chapel.' The mission chapel 'ha,? become thei kitchen,-where the pre hundreds' 'aqd -l thousands of churches in thii country gorgeously built 'and. 'supported that 4even,, ton bright and.sunshiny days, are not half full of worshipers, and yet they are building mission chapels, because, by some expressed or implied regulation, the great masses of the people are kept out of the main audience room. -Now I &ay that any place of worship which is appropriate for one class is appropriate foi all clashes. Let the fieli a ml the poor meet together, the Lord the Maker of them all. Mind you that- 1 say that mission chapels are a necessity, the. way churches arc now :ondiitted. but 111113 sliced tin; tiuiis uheii they shall cease to bis a neccs-d-t3. God will iim: up and br. ak down the gates of the church that have kept back the masses; and woe be to those wni stand in the w:i3! Thoy will ha trampled under foot by the vast pop ulations making a stampede for Heuv in. 1 saw in some paper an account of a liurcli in Huston in which it is said. there were a great 111:1113 plain people. l'hi! next week the trustees of that hurch came out in the paper au.l said it was not so at fill; "ihey were eu- ant people ami highly conditioned in oile that went there." Then I laughed outright; and when I laugh I laugh very loudly. "Thos'j people," I .aid, "are afraid of the sickly .senti mentality of this churches." Now, my uubitiou is not to preach to 3011 so much. It seems to me that 3011 must be faring sumptuously ever3 ikiy, and the marks of comforts are all about yon. You do not need the Gospel half as much as do some who never come liens. uallier tlian bo priding iii3self on a church in front of which there shall halt 50 splendid equipages on the Sabbath day, 1 would have a church up to whose gates there should conu a long procession of the suffering and the stricken and the (lying begging for ad mittance.

If moaistarv s icejss wjr the chief idea in the church, then I say that the pre.-!".t mode of conducting finances is the. best If it is to see how main dollars 3cu can gain, then thu present mode is the best. Hut if it is the saving of souls from sin and death. and bringing the mighty populations. of our cities to the knowledge of God, then I CT3-, Revolution! It is coming fast I feel it in the air. 1 hear tho rumbling of an earthquake that .shall shake down, in one terrible crash, tho arrogance of our modern Christianity. The sea is covered with wrecks, and multitudes are drowning. Wc come out with the church life-boat, and tho people b.'gin to clamber in, and we shout: "Stop! Stop! You must think it costs nothing to keep a lifo-boat Thpsc seats at the crew are one dollar apiece, those in the middle f if ty cents, and those seats in the stern two shil lings. Please to pa up, or elsa lloun !er on a little longer till the mission-boat, whose work it is to save 3ou penniless wretches, shall como along and plok 3011 up. We save 01113 first class slnnur.s in this boat." The talk is, whether Protestant churches or Roman Catholic churches are coming out ahead. I tell 3011, Protestants, this truth plainly: That until 3our churches are as free as tho Roman Catholic cathedrals thev will beat 3ou. In their cathedral the mil lionaire and the beggar kneel side by side. And until that time comes in our churched we can not expect the favor of God, or permanent spiritual pros per itj-. Revolution! It rtiav be that, before the church learns its dnt3' to the masses, God will scourge it, and corns with the whip of omnipotent indigna tion anddriveout the mone3 changers. It ma3- be that there is to be a great da3" of upsetting before that time shall come. If it must come, O Lord God, let it come now! In that future da3' of the reconstruct ed Church of Christ, the church-building will be the most cheerful of all buildings. Instead of the light of the sun strained through painted 'glas. until an intelligent nuthoritj looks green, and blue, and yellow, and cop per-colored, we will have no. sure things.
