Pastor Cottrell was In Louisville last
Tuesday in attendance upon a meeting
of the State Board of Missions of which

Finds Personal Work Tho Best
Way To Promote Christianity.
Says A Man's Heart Has To
Be Broken Before It Can Be
Lee Nelson, a preacher and machin
ist, who has a place at the shops in
this city, took : deep interest in the
Methodist meeting. Mr. Nelson Is the
happiest type of a Christian, although
he declares that a man's heart must
be broken before it will turn to a Chris
tian heart. He is a fat, jolly fellow and
everybody who sees him could not help
admiring his disposition.
He makes an effort every day at his
work particularly to persuade men
to live the thoughtful, reverent and
Christian life. Recently, someone was
swearintr in his presence while at work,
and he reminded the young man of one
of the ten commandments "Thou shalt
not swear." He has not broken it be
fore him slnco, and he and Mr. Nelson
are the best of friends.
The preacher machinist hopes to
bring his family from Evansville and
make Cloverport his home.
Wedding Takes Place In St,
Mary's Church Of The Woods.
Bridal Guests Entertained.
Couple To Live At Flaherty
McQuady; June 0. (Special) That
"all the world loves a lover" was
again demonstrated by the large crowd
which, despite the early hour, gather
ed at the church of St. Mary of the
Woods, on June 4, to witness the mar
raige ceremony of Miss Nellie Crews,
of McQuady and Mr.Charles Cracroft,
of Flaherty. Mr. Fidello Brickey, the
popular clerk of P.Sherran & Bro., and
Miss Annie McGary, a charming belle
of McQuady. were the waiters. Paul
and Elolse Crews, small nephew and
niece of the bride, were the llower
children. Tne wedding march was
rendered by Miss Lilian Sheeran with
her usual grace and talent.
The bride was lovely dressed in a
clinging gown and veil of sheer white.
The groom looked his handsomest in
the conventional black.
Quietly, solemnly, and beautifully
was the sacred ceremony performed by
Rev. J. F. Knue. Two nnre lives
were united for "better or worse."
After a delightful repast served at
the home of the bride they left for
Flaherty, their future home, amid a
shower of rice and good wishes.

Woodrow Wilson ofjncw Jersey should be the Democrat
ic candidate for President.
Thnt is the opinion of Tho World. Thnt is the counsel of
the New Jersey primaries. That is the logic of the situation,
It is time for facts and not for theories. Judson Harmon
might prove a strong candidate in New York nnd Ohio,
but his nomination has been rendered impossible. Champ
Clark would be n hopelessly beaten candidate in New
York, New Jersey and Connecticut. He could do no better
than Mr. Bryan, who has lost these States three times and
would lose them ngain if nominated. Oscar W. Underwood
is of Presidential size, but he has been untested ns n candi
date in the North and is an unknown quantity to most of
the voters. Woodrow Wilson alone has a record of contin
uing victory in the section in which victory is essential to
Democratic success.
What other Democratic candidate could poll so many
votes in the great debatable States of the East New York,
New Jersey and Connecticut?
What other Democratic candidate, who could carry these
States, would be so strong iu the great
the Middle West Ohio and Indiana?
What other Democratic candidate could make so power
ful an appeal to hundreds of thousands of thoughtful inde
pendent voters without whose support
ident can be elected?
What other Democratic candidate could .so well stem the
rising tide of Rooscveltisni, which now threntcusjlo engulf
representative government and republican institutions?
What other Democratic candidate would so fully meas
ure up to the ideals of the sane radicals and the sane con
servatives upon whose joint action the result of the election
will hinge?
The World hitherto has withheld its active support;froin
all candidates. It advocated an open convention at Haiti
more, and advised its Democratic friends to await the net
ion of the Republicans at Chicago. The open convention is
assured. The measure of all the candidates has been taken.
The situation is clarified and further delay is unnecessary.
Like a twentieth-century Genghis Khnn, Theodore
Roosevelt, with his horde of prairie Populists and Wall
street Socialists, is sweeping down upon the Republican
National Convention. Mr. Taft .seems as powerless to check
him as the degenerate Romans wcra to check; the descent
of the Goths aud the Vandals. The historic party of Lincoln
and Seward and Chase and Sumner and Conkling and
Chandler and Maine and Garfield and Harrison and Sher
man and McKinley is apparently in the death throes. This
is the twilight of the gods, and the Democratic party must
rise not only to its opportunity but to its responsibility.
How can it do its duty better than to match sanity
against lunacy; statesmanship against demagogy; the his
torian against the Rough Rider; the educator ofj public
opinion against the debaucher of public opinion; the first
term against the third term; the tariff-reformer ngainst the
stand-patter; the man who would prosecute trust magnates
against the man who protects trust magnates; the man
with clean hands against the man who draws his campaign
fund from Wall street; the supporter of constitutional gov
ernment against the champion of personal government; law
against lawlessness; Americanism against Mexicanism; the
Republic against the dictatorship?
Who better represents these issues than Woodrow Wil
son? Who is better qualified than Woodrow Wilson to ap
peal to the intelligence and common sense of the American
people against the most cunning and adroit demagogue
that modern civilization has produced since Napoleon III. ?
Who would stand a better chance of election in this great
national crisis?
Let us look at the facts:
It will require 260 electoral votes to elect a President.
The so-called Southern States, including Maryland and
Missouri, have 175 votes. Assuming that Arizona will; go
Democratic too, practically any Democratic candidate for
President can count on I78 electontlvotes. Hut 83 more
are necessary to victory. Where can These 83 be found?
It is folly to look for them west of the Mississippi River.
The West is in the midst of another revival of Populism.
In Theodore Roosevelt it has found n new substitute for its
gospel of free silver. He is the political reincarnation of
James B. Weaver, Mary IS. Lease, Jerry Simpson and Pef
fer. He is the heaven-born ratio of 16 to 1 iu a still more
fascinating form. It is idle to think that any Democrat
could appeal to the West against Roosevelt. It is idle to
think that anybody who is not a far more masterful and
dangerous demagogue than Roosevelt could command""tlTe
support of the Populists who now call themselves Republi
can Progressives.
The Democratic party, if it is to win the election' and
safeguard American institutions, must unite the East and
the South as Tilden did in I876.

Funeral Of Mrs. Bush.
Mr. and Mrs. L. B, Perkins, Messrs
From the J'cir )ork World
carry New York with its 45 ulectoml votes. He must
carry New Jersey with its 14 electoral votes, He must
carry Connecticut with its 7 electoral votes To lose these
states is to give Roosevelt a walkover To win these States
is to win not only 60 of the 88 electorial votes that are
needed, but in nil probability it is to win Ohio with 24 votes;
it is to win Indiana with 15 votes, which is the historical
political ally of New York and New Jersey; it is to give the
Democratic party an opportunity of victory iu Massachu
setts with its 18 votes, and to bring Deleware with its 3
votes back into the Democratic column. In other words,
it is to elect a Democratic President of the United States.
It is iu the East that Democratic victory must be won. It
is in the East that Roosevcltism must be overthrown. It is
the East that must save the country from n third term and
all it implies. For that reason The World regards Wood
row Wilson ns the strongest candidate the Democratic party
can nominate.
The New Jersey primaries were a vital test of his political
strength not only in New Jersey but in New York. They
proved that local opposition to him is largely a myth. Al
though the campaign against him was well organized and
abundantly financed, it failed miserably. He swept the
State, nnd the only four delegates he lost were lost through
the personal efforts of James Smith, Jr , a political boss
debatable States of
no Democratic Pres
whom Gov. Wilson kept out of the United States Senate.
In a section of the country where Wall street and the politi
cal bosses are most powerful, Gov. Wilson demonstrated
that he has the confidence of the rank and file of the party,
without which any man's candidacy is futile. He demon
strated as well that his political strength is the kind Jof
strength that is essential to Democratic success iu the vital
ly necessary States of New York, New Jersey and Connec
ticut. So much for that.
During Gov. Wilson's public career The World has been
compelled to take issue with him on many questions. We
regarded with grave misgivings his sudden conversion to
the initiative and referendum, reversing the principles of a
lifetime. We regretted his apparent disposition to imitate
Mr. Bryan's sweeping charges against the so-called Money
Trust without supporting these charges with facts and speci
fications. We regretted his long campaign tours, his too
eager chase after the nomination, and certain symptoms of
instability which threatened to weaken his public useful
ness. We have not hesitated to warn him when we thought
he was going astray, and shall not hesitate to do so again in
the future.
Hut Gov Wilson's elements of weakness are vastly over
balanced by his elements of strength. He has proved his
political courage and his fearlessness. lie has proved him
self sound on tariff reform. He has proved himself sound
on the Sherman law. He has proved himself sound on cor
poration control. He has proved himself sound on trust
prosecutions and personal guilt. He has proved himself
sound against government by Wall street plutocracy. He
has proved himself sound on the independence of the judi
ciary. He has proved himself sound on the fundamental
principals of constitutional government. He has proved
that he is instinctively and temperamentally a Democrat.
He has proved himself a free man who cannot be bulldosed
by bosses or influenced against his conviction even by his
personal friends. This is the sort of man who ought to be
Gov. Wilson has had more public experience than Grover
Cleveland had when he was elected President. He is better
known to the rank and file of the party than Samuel J .
Tilden was when he was nominated for President. The
World believes that he would be a progressive constitution
al President whom the American people could trust and for
whom they would never have cause to apologize.
We appeal to all Democrats to consider this matter sober
ly and thoughtfully and without prejudice. We appeal to
the delegates to the Democratic National Convention to be
swayed by no considerations except those of principle and
the public welfare. We appeal to Mr. Bryan to throw his
great political influence upon the side of Gov. Wilson aud
aid the Democratic party to meet adequately this great crisis
in the Nation's history He has the most brilliant opportu
ity for disinterested, patriotic leadership that has come to
any American of his generation, and he has before him in
Theodore Roosevelt a striking example of the meaning of
ruthless aild unyielding ambition.
It is not iu behalf of Woodrow Wilson that The World
urges his nomination. It is not merely iu behalf of the
Democratic party as a party. It is in behalf of the Ameri
can people. It is iu behalf of American institutions. It is
in behalf of the Republic. It is in behalf of the Nation that
is now confronted with the gravest menace that it has faced
sincethe obliteration of human slavery and the overthrow
of secession.

Selling Old Clothes
There is a young woman In town who
always has good luck in selling clothes
that she does not want to use any long
er for herself. For instance, if anyone
comes to her to buy second-handed
garments, she always puts them la
their best shape. Old shoes she
always cleans well and polishes them,
and they bring the price they are real
ly worth. The same Idea can be ap
plied to dresses by cleaning and press
ing them.
