And Church Doctrine In Police Court ^
||||p^ This Morning. ^e5
Eugene Perkins, (colored) from to
-" Austin, this, state, was the first , one '
llllgup in police court this morning. His on
fgScharge.was drunkeness. When asked no
Kf he was guilty he replied:* Yes; |f?

don't want my name to. go. in no news- js
papers, for I'so a good Christian.
|||||Baptist and eould'nt tell a lie for so
the whole world."
At this point His Honor remarked bt
that good Christians should'nt drink; aD
asked him what he supposed the good
Lord would think about it. To which
Perkins replied that he bad asked
the Lord to forgive him and he had ^
done so, and he hoped that the white ne
gentleman- would do the same, "i.cu nn

vacation, and I done "sociated wj th se:

money." City Solicitor Stanley asked
His Honor if one of the Cordinal (j0
principles of his church read some
thing like this: "Once in jgrace, car- fixi
not back-slide." "Yes it is true in "h
regard to the church, but not of the '

What is Old Age? t
In considering the service pension g
order of the Interior Department, di- jg
rected by President Roosevelt, Senator
Carmacks, of Tennessee, quoted
the whereas to the effect that "old
age is an infirmity, the average nature
and extent of which the experience
of the Pension Bureau "has established
with, reasonable certainty"?that is
sixty-two years. Then occurred
this exchange: les
Mr. Spooner?"I am glad to hear
deny that?'.'
Mr. CarmaCk?"I do."
Mr, Spooner-?"Does the Senator
mean to say that old age is not an
infirmity?" is!
fKIr. Carmack?"I do." ha
Mr. S.oponer?"I am glad to hear ?r<
~ ft." To
Mr. A Id rich?"Although, you would want
some better evidence?" ?
Mr. Carmaek?"I do not know any ^j.
man who bears his sixty-two years
^ 'with more .ease and honor than the
Senator from Wisconsin, and I offer <
the honorable Senator as an exhibit th
. ' -to prove that sixty-two years ot' age Iri:
does not constitute infirmity." ;
Mr. Spooner?"I can testify to the ^
fact that I cannot dp the manual
labor now that I could do ten o.ffff- .
teen years ago."
Mr. Carmaek?"I have done a
great deal."
Mr. Carmaek?-"I cannot believe it." to'
Mr. Spooner?"What?" co
Mr; Carmaclt?"I cannot believe it." s?
Mr. Spooner?"The Senator does ^
. hot "doubt my word?" 0?
Mr. Carmaek?"I am compelled to
doubt -that the * Senator could ever
have been classed, as a manual la- '
.borer. What I was saying is that age 6b
may cause infirmity, just as a gunshot
wound or an accident of any J
fkind may cause an infirmity, but age ^
itself is not an infirmity. Whether on
it produces infirmities-at any particular
^iine of life depends , upon, the
native vigor of a man's constitution. <
- 'It must be decided with reference to Tr
each particular man." '

Fairmont Representative Did Well
But Was in Hard Luck.
Prof. W. L. llcCowan. of the Nor'
ma.1 School, returned last night from
the Inter-Normal contest, which was
held at Hinton. .Only four of the
Normals were represented?jFairmont.
Shepherdstown, Huntington and Concord
West Liberty and Glenviile
were not represented.
Huntington won first prize and
Shepherdstown second. The other
two were not announced.
It seems that fate was against our
contestant, Mr. E. B. Harden. He
started Friday morning, but owing to
a wreck on the Parkersburg branch,
he was delayed five and a half hours
n,,,-! -r,TTinpiinn at Huntington.
From there he took the accommodation
and had to stand up nearly half
the way. When he arrived at Hinton,tired
and worn out after a Journey of
3S9 miles, the contest was going on
and the second speaker was on the
floor. Without^ time to rest, Mr. Harden
came upon the floor and. delivered
i a fine oration, but could not do hj4m,
self- or the school he represented Jus'
He : deserves great_ praise for the
way he upheld the tchool under the
circumstances. Prof. Wilkinson, who
[ holds the contest each year, said that
this was the closest contest yet held,
s Mr. Harden did not come home last
.. night, but came to Mdundsville to visit
friends before returning home.
A Magnificent Record.
The record of the Republican party
is made up1 to date, and it cannot be
changed by attempts to distort or mis,
represent it. It is history, and it
forms by far the most brilliant page ,
in the history of the country. It e;n.
bodies all the progress the country
- lias made during the last century,
from an Isolated nation, almost with
out recognition beyond, its own borders,
to a world power, whose influence
for civilization and progress
. is felt throughout the world, and from
L a place away down in. the list of man
> ufacturing and commercial countries
- to the -Very front rank. The party
' under vvhose government and policies
the country has made this, progress
I cuotipcdnti liv* "broken pledges
and forgetting- promises of reform,"
nor by discarding American tra&i
tions, but by adopting high ideals
. and living up to them, by formulating
; progressive policies and carrying
; them out. Mr: Cleveland is greatly
mistaken if he thinks the people can
be induced to exchange this kind of
progress, development and growth for
. "such- safety and quiet as may be offered
them by a patriotic and conser
vatlve Democracy.'' ? Indianapolis
