Clark Makes Bad Break. Champ Clark at the Trans Mississippi convention appears ‘to have been the same witty, genial companionable fellow that he always is at every function. His speech was interesting, and in a gefteral way emphatic as to most of the important matters under ^consideration, but, upon one of the most important ques tions with which the convention attempted to deal he fell down. That was the Aldrich currency scheme. He was not enamored of it, he said, though it might possess good points. He did not understand it, however, and for that reason he was opposed to it. It savored too much of concen tration of the financial interests of the country. There is a great diversity of sentiment as to’ the plan propos ed by Mr. Aldrich to make the currency system of the country more elastic and to prevent the disasters that attend the flurries or panics that come now and then. Many of the ablest finan ciers of the country endorse it, equally as many are opposed to it, and the feeling among the __j_ .. i_ _11. _ wuxxtx.y uiuuisc xt, c^uiux^ no many are opposed to it, and the feeling among the leading men of the republican and democrat ic parties is the same, but most of those who have taken a stand either for or against the meas ure have studied it and are able to give reasons for the faith that is in them. Not so, howev er with our geqjal friend Champ. Although it was submitted to the American people nearly two years ago, and has been discuss ed in various commercial bodies gs well as congress, he is “agin” it because he doesn’t know any thing about it. j One would naturally assume that an aspirant for so impor tant a position as the presiden cy would give some considera tion to all the great questions before the country, and that a question so momentous as one which relates to currency re form would not escape his no tice, but it seems to be other wise. But then, there are so many statesmen who are, or at least ^profess to be, ignorant of the merits or demerits of questions relative to which there is a fierce discussion and criticism among the people all around ■ them. Statesmen of that kind are not rare, but they seldom as P *re to the' presidency.—Fort ISmith Times-Record.» ^ - - ’arty Killed Eight Deer, hunting party from this spent last week near , returned Monday l and with all kinds of luding four deer, killed it hunters of the par 3ummins, who lives i Sam Cantwell, man, each killed M.

It was an appeal that i brought much . conviction. It | was a message to the Christian | to live a higher life, to the un | saved to accept Christ NOW. Mr. Burke’s text was taken from Ecclesiastes 12:1 “Re member now thy Creator in the days of thy youth,' while the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them;” His theme “Eternal Memory.” Remember just now; not to 1 morrow, but NOW. “Those that seek me early shall find me.” The first business proposition is to seek your Creator, while you can be appealed to. The longer you neglect, the less pleasure will you have in the message of God. mi i i ji • • i i * A11“ UIUtJieSL tiling 111 tills world is neglect. To neglect the one who loves us» Mother wants to be remember, because she loves us. It will be a mighty sad day for some of you when you shall remember, you have neglected your Salvation, your Saviour. If you neglect you will get to the place that you will not care, if the church bell rings or not, if preachers want to preach all right. I don’t care. When a man gets to the place he don’t care, he has struck the bottom. You become so negative you are beyond appeal. Neglect your child, while you give him a good education. You say he can then make money and he will be all right. Yet if you | neglect your child’s salvation I you have ruined him. We need more parents to teach their children to respect the church and Sunday school. Church members in this town I that belong to churches away from here should put their mem bership in Here. If the churches are not good enough for you move away from town. If you want to be happy fol low Jesus every day. If you want to keep close to God keep telling the story.
