Nash There are many people who are making reputations from something that they are the or. iginatorof or claiming to be. We do not know who started tin Peanut Club, or the Sweet Pota to Club, but all agree that both are great industries now, and destined to be two of the South’s greatest factors from an origi nal stand point. Gen. Nash has always been a fore seeing man and we might say that he lived somewhat in advance of his day and genera tiou, as will appear from a law that we publish here below when he was a member of the Logisla* ture from this County in 1884 drafted and introduced by him Gen. Nash has always been in sympathy with the farmers re cognizing that the happiness and prosperity of a country depend ed upon their success. We need such wholesome laws now upon our statute books and trust that our solons will utilize the light diffused by Gen. Nash as far back as 1884. To say more would be useless, for the minds of the people are peculiarly receptive for such pro gress. We quote the act: “An Act to encourage the raising of hogs in the State of Mississippi. Whereas the pro duction of meat at home in quan titles sufficient to supply the peo ple at large, and especially our farming and laboring classes, is deemed a matter of great public importance and should be en couraged by legislative favor. Now therefore in order to en courage the raising of hogs in the Slate of Mississippi and to make secure in advance all fu ture investments made and all additional care, skill aud atten tion expended and bestowed in this direction. Section Ist. be it enacted by the legislature of the State of Mississippi that from and after this date all hogs in the State of Mississippi shall be exempt from any and all taxes whatever eith er State, County, or Municipal and shall also be exempt from seizure and sale under execution or attachment. Section 2nd. Be it further en acted.' That this law shall be in force and take efiect from and af ter its passage the public wel fare requiring it.” One Woman’s Scheme. The thrifty wife of an officer in our army saw no reason why the big sheets of linen paper covered with tig ares and calculations should be thrown away. She begged all she could get, soaked them, and for her reward had enough fine linen to make frocks and blouses for the family. The ink does not go through the surface finish and so a perfect treasure lies under neath to he had for a t>lt of bot watef and the asking. The Bachelor Tax in Bulgaria.

'nffilaoWs ‘' THE PRECIOUS OiFMENI Pastor Russell Points Out More De ceptive Additions to tha Word of God Contained In Our Common Version Bibles, but Shown to Be False Be cause Not Found In the Oldest Greek MSS. —One of These “Flies” Has Moulded Accepted Theology—Dead Flies Cause the Apothecary’s Oint ment to Stink. —Ecclesiastes 10i1. 1 1 Not long ago 1 ~ - pointed out th a 1 the twelve A verses of St. Mark’s Gospel, in our Com mon Version, are spurious—so recog nlzed by all schol fSSSj&M ars, because these verses are not to ToR , RCSSEt&I be found In any of the oldest Greek MSS. and were evidently added to the Word of God in the Seventh Century or later. Moreover, we gave proofs of the untruthfulness of this addition. Is it true that whoever believes the Gospel of Christ may handle serpents with impunity and may drink deadly poison without harm? Surely not. It is nothing short of a sin for those who know better to acknowledge these verses and to use them to bolster up theories of Divine Healing. It is as much a crime to add to the Word of God as to take away from it. Today I invite attention to some otb er “dead flies,” some other additions to God’s Word, which have had much to do with twisting the theology once de livered to the- saints. Take, for in stance, the closing words of the Lord’s Prayer:— “Thine is the Kingdom and Power and Glory.” These words, if uttered by our Lord, should be found in the old Greek MSS. But they are not found therein. They are, therefore, to be rejected as additions made by people centuries after Matthew’s Gospel was written These words were introduced when the faith of the Church respecting the Kingdom of Messiah was changed or changing from what it was originally. All through the New Testament the second coming of Christ In power and glory to establish His Kingdom and to glorify the Church, His Bride, is set for the end of this Gospel Age. But as the time grew long a change of sen timent came into the Church. It be came popular and rich. Its bishops were respected. Finally the theory prevailed that God did not intend to delay the establishment of the King dom until the second coming of Christ, but did intend to establish it In the hands of the Church during this Age and to use the Church for the con quering of the world and the fulfilling of all the promises of the past In line with this the most prominent bishop of the time was recognized as Divinely appointed to represent Christ In the world and to reign over the na tions in his stead and to bring about the Messianic reign, etc. This was the Bishop of Rome, who subsequently was styled the Pope and who claimed and was accorded the honorable title, “ Vice-gerent of the Son of Qod .” It is said that the equivalent of this title is worn to this day by the Pope on his tiara, or three-crowned hat— Vicarius Dei Filli. “Thy Kingdom Como on Earth.” The Lord’s prayer was already in the Scriptures, and was known to many. It could not be eliminated! But some zealous person, fully believing that God’s Kingdom had come, felt justified in amending the prayer to correspond to what he were the facts. the prayer which begins, “Thy Kingdom come,” is made to end by saying, “Thy Kingdom has come in its glory and power.” How glad w© are to see the Truth on this subject; that the Kingdom of God’s dear Son has not yet been set up in any sense of the word —that It is still future. It cannot be set up until this Gospel Age ends and the ‘'elect” saint ly few of every nation, Jew and Gen tile, shall be changed from earthly to heavenly nature by the First Resurrec tion, which will qualify them to be kings and priests unto Qod and unto Christ and to reign with Him a thou sand years (Revelation xx, 5). It is well that all Bible students should mark this “fly” and extract it from the precious Ointment and notice how much sweeter and fresher the Lord’s prayer Is to them forever. “Oh, Whopper!” Jj Who avmpflth’ze with jtjf JLoC-LUMSUt * TIME O* TWAINS AT •TASK 7ILLE, MISS. —' Mobile & Ohio Railroad • _ • TIMS OP TRAINS AT STARKVILLB, MISS.

Surely anyone of reasoning mind should see the absurdity of such a statement Surely all Christian minis ters should have informed the Lord’s fheep under their care respecting what js and what is not the Word of God, the Bible, as it was recognized by the Apostolic Church and written down In the original Greek MSS.

The farm, in Mississippi, will doubtless be far better tended this year, than ever before. There is more energy expended on it in the way of ditching, ear lyjand thorough preparation, than we have ever seen. No doubt but it will yield up its riches, in thirty, sixty, and even an hun dred fold in return. Too long has the pretensive farmer been the sluggard, hitting the few hard licks absolutely nec essary to eke from the soil a bare living while hia mind and soul were lolling beneath the green, willows overhanging the fish pond, or were traduced into a wild speculation of the time when be might emulate the luxuriant ease ?of his “town neighbor.” Judge T.
