xCapt. W. W. Bradshaw's Sunday
The American Sunday School Union
presents a brief statement of Capt.W.
W. Bradshaw's Sunday School work up
to three years before his death. Comes
from his Superintendent S. D. Hen
derson, KyM Rev. J. H. McCullagh.
Capt. W. W. Bradshaw was a noted
cavalry officer during the civil war.
For the past twenty-eight years he
has been our intrepid misssonary in
the roughest mountain region of Ken
tucky. In a number of counties he
established the first Sabbath schools
ever known within their bounds.
At the risk of his life, he has visit
ed communities rent asunder by
bloody feuds and unfurled the Gospel
standard of peace and good will. The
following Illustrates some features of
One thousand and forty Sunday
Schools, located in iifty-six different
counties have been organized by Capt.
W. W. Bradshaw,. These schools
have furnished instruction for eighty
thousand children. One hundred and
two young men from these schools
have become ministers, seventy-eight
churches have been organized and
nine thousand conversions reported.
Visiting the communities where he
started the work, he -was glad to find
so many Schools in a flourishing con
dition after more than twenty years
of usefulness. At one point a promi
nent phisician said, "Bradshaw this
place is not as 3'ou knew it years ago,
when you were around here organiz
ing those Sunday Schools, I did not
believe they would amount to any
thing. But they are monuments
which will last forever. Instead of
this being one of the worst places in
the state, it is now as good as the best.
I have practiced through ehis section
for thirty-five years and know what
it was then, and what it is to day."
This commendation may also be ap
plied to the schools of our other mis
sionaries. The Secretary of Missions, Philadel
phia, Pa., gives a copy of the resolu
tion adopted by the Board of Mana
gers of the American Sunday School
Union on January 3rd. 1913.
Resolved, That we recognize that in
the death of Capt. W. W Bradshaw
the world loses a good man and that
this Seciety loses a wise, faithful ag
gressive and singularly successful Mis
sionary, who through the long period
of thirty one years of service in this
relation has given evidence of his
tireless energy and unswerving devo
tion to the interest of the spiritually
destitute boys and girls in the moun
tain regions of Eastern Kentucky."
Attest G. P. Williams, D. D.
SECKETAKY OF MISSIONS.
Philadelphia, Jan. 23rd. 15)13.
He adds to the above, this is no for
mal resolution, but is a genuine ex
pression of the high opinion in which
we hold our good brother.
We shall long remember him, and
his work will go on telling for right
eousness during all the years to come.
The seed he has sown will bring
forth fruit that will be gathered br
others in the distant future. He saw
much of the blessing God gave to his
labors while here with us, but much
.more will greet his eye's when all shall
stand before the King.
Parties indebted to the firm of Drs.
Russell & Hindman for medical ser
vices and wishing to settle their ac
counts with the doctors will please do
so before Feb. lo, as -said firm has
dissolved partnership and will after
that date place all their accounts in
the hands of a collector.. All accounts
due said firm must be settled by that
timesome way, as the doctors will
after that keep separate accounts
while they still occupy the same of
fice. No Need to Stop Work
When the doctor orders jou to stop
work it staggers you I can't, you
say. You know you are weak, run
down and failing in health day by day
but you must work as long as you can
stand. What you need is Electric
Bitters to give tone, strength and vig

A change in the condition of the
pike from tnis town to Campbellsville,
from bad to worse forces W. R. Myers
and son to withdraw their automo
bile service until the summer sun
shine overcomes the winter rains and
freezes. Apparently, last week, the
outlook was favorable, the future
seemed certain to warrant a continu
ance, of the good service they were
giving, but the rain softening the
roads, heavy wagons digingdeep rutes,
the rough stone tumbled on the road
all combined to make it unsafe and al
most impassable for autos. It is a
means of protecting the public and
safeguarding their personal interest
that these gentlemen further refuse
to operate their machines on this
road. They are mail contractors and
to that extent are compelled to carry
out their agreement which will be
done on the old hacks, arrangements
having been made with Goff Bros.
Liverymen of this town, to keep
the hacks going. These gentlemen
inform The News man that they re
gret to take this step but as above
stated no other safe course was open.
The inconvenience and wory to the
traveling public are plain to us all.
The effect on this entire community
is neither wholesome nor appreciated,
but no one acquainted with conditions
will have any just ground for criticis
ing the course taken.
Lebanon, within a few days, will re
turn to its old wallow in the mire.
The Court of Appeals sustained the
lower court in its decision confirming
the victory of the wets in the election
held last jear. For several years Leb
anon has been a dry town but all the
while in the grasp of better conten
tion between those who favored and
those opposed to the legal sale of
liquors. From our view point, from
what we hvae seen of wet Lebanon
and dry Lebanon certainly a mistake
has been made. One thousand dollars
will be the licens imposed by the town
and it is probable that several saloons
will open within a few days.
A Good Improvement.
Postmaster W. A. Coffey has safe
guarded the mail by a heavy wire
screen so'that the office may remain
open on Sunday for the convenience
of those who have lock boxes. This
was not an expensive matter, yet it
will be highly appreciated by many
who can get their mail without incon
venience to themselves or to the post
master. The Best Cough Medicine
"I have used Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy ever since I have been keep

a charm. For colds and whooping

if the Baptists of this town mean to
build their new church. To settle
the fears and doubts of many we an
swer that the committee recently re
turned plans for certain corrections,
which, when done, we feel will prove
satisfactory to the entire congregation
and that no further delay will be nec
essary in this important work. It is
the opinion of the building committee
that active work on the building will
begin in the early Spring. You need
not further question for we are all
keeping the faith and while the com
mittee may appear to some a slow
moving body, yet you may put it down
for a fact that it is a certain moving
one. Make yonr arrangements not
only to pay what you promised but to
