The other day nt the funeral of
John K. Stamper, In the presence of
a great crowd of peoplo, I made tho
statoinenl that the peoplo who
carry pistols should bo classified an
1. Clnss ono Includes tho officers
of the law who should go 'prepared
according to the Inw to enforce tlio
authority of tho law.
2. Class two Includes tho person
who either plans crlmo or nt heart
says I will bo prepared to commit
crime should tho clrcumslnnccs un
der which I ran do the thing come
3 The third class Includes the
coward who Is nfrald that he mixht
be found by the criminal In sur
roundings favorable for said crimi
nal to do Ills wnik nnd the rnnnid
thinks ho must lip ready with a pis
tol to defend himself.

should be dlwirmed If It took force
on tho part of tho non-plstol-earrior.
Now. Hi nt her Pistol-Can ler. Fol
low Cltlren. You and I. let's look nt
and talk about this mattor frankly.
I havo been trying to see this from
vour vlow point as woll as mine I
am your friend nnd lovo you tho I
probably hnvo given you llttlo ovl

My peoplo have fought when nec

Ethan Allen, of TIcondcroga fame.
Is another of the samo family. My
grandfather took upon himself tho
duty and peril of a citizen's guard
during tho Civil War. which duty
was probably more dangerous than
tho soldier life at that time Ho
carried a bullet in his body to his
grave only a few years ngo. I could
come closer to my own life with In
cidents, but su'reo It to say. God
has helped mo to !o perfectly cool

lovo God, but only love my fellow
Pistol-Carrier, you aro nj broth
er man. I never have owned or car
ried a pistol you have, but am I
one bit better within myself than
jou are because of this? I t , not.
I was roared in a quiot community
wliero I can only lpcall three cases
of murder In my home ceauly dur
ing tho twpntv-twn yiai- i led

given tlio limit under Hip bitter
teeth of tlio law. Moat of jem whom
I have in mind now aio cicatures of

very hills, rocks and valleys seem to
suggest lurking danger. Your fath
ers did find them filled with danger
but today the wild Indian, vicious
beasts and poisonous reptiles aio of

and runs away when frightened and
our gentle cow still p'eslsls In be

oven our faithful, fi loudly dog will

you and I about as much to blame
fer our friend's pistol-carrying as
ho himself? Let's classify ourselves
ns wo did our neighbors and sco our
selves ns wo roally are.
1 First nro the officers of tho law
who hnvo Hworn to uphold the lnwsldn to work out an understanding
against plstol-carrylng, but who aro
helpless to enforce tho law without
tho co-operation of tho rest of tho
2. Tho second class Includes tho
persons who do not themselves ac
tively commit tho crime, hut either
laugh at It or Indifferently pass It
up ns nono of their concern, forget
ting; that wo aro every one of us In
n measure our brothers keeper.
.1. A third class of us realize how
criminal It Is In curry a pistol. "Wp
know- It will got Its owner Into
trouble by loading him to commit
crime which he would not hut for bnttomloss. w,e within was an op
the fact Hint he had the pistol, or ,,reslve darkness In which could bo
else it makes him tho object of tho Lcr iv .,. iKi1tnnirs of hltr
other fellow V tire, because tho other
follow thinks he had bettor get lilm
before ho himself is shot. Wo know
tills (KTlirS a thousand times to one
where the pistol keeps its owner out
of trouble. And yet no aro too
COWARDLY as good citizens to go
as a friend to our neighbor and to
law mid order, und shuw him tho
perils with which ho Is surround

I The fniu th class of us seo all
thee things, hut when wo do speak
it is with Pharisaical spirit as wo
hurl our invectives thru our teeth
at our In other Instead of going In
tho spirit of meekness and restor
ing him.
Now, Mr. Good Citizen, aro not
you nnd I as much to blame as tho
nctunl plstol-carrlcr? Havo wo tri
ed to show him Hint It Is to his own
Interest to tho Interest of his own
kindred nnd friends ns well as to
society at largo for each and every
ono of us to lay aside theso wea
pons of danger and crime? Have
wo taken tlmo to show him that
law was mndo to protect all of us
in our lifo. liberty and pursuit of
hupplness? I need not blame tho
other follow If I am as much at
fault for my neglect of my known
duty as bo Is Have wo foi gotten

That this was drawn up by a man of Intelligence thoro

great damage there Is no doubt. The author is naturally
not claiming attention. It Is not a matter of which ho
