Bake in 1883 when he was launching out into his profession, made so suc cessor in the' years to follow, Judge Burrow and Bob Taylor hung up their "shingle" together in Johnson City as the la wfirm of Taylor & Burrow. As young men with a promising future be fore them Bob Taylor and Robert Bur row' formed many close personal friendships that Senator Tay'.or enjoy-! ed until his death and that are still cherished.by Judge Burrow. ' - In 1884 Judge Burrow was presiden tial elector from his district on the Cleveland and Hendricks ticket, and Bob Taylor was an elector from the state at large. Launching out Into a bigger fleldj Judge Burrow left Johnso Cnity early in his career and took up the practice of law at Bristol, and" for the past th'rty years he has been very euccess ful in his profession in and around BrWol and Johnson City.

The slightest symptom of kidney trouble is far too serious to be over looked. It's the small, ' ' neglected troubles that so often lead to serious kidney uilments. That pain in the "small" of your back;' that urinary ir regularity; those headaches and diz zy spells; that weak, weary, worn-out feeling, may bo nature's warning of kidney weakness! Why risk your life by neglecting those symptoms? Reach the cause of the trouble, while there yet Ms time begin treating youi kid neys at once with a tried and proven kidney remedy. No need to experi ment Doan's Kidney Pills have been successfully use ' in thousands of cases of kidney trouble for over 50 years. Doan's Kidney Pills are used and rec ommended throughout the civilized world. Convincing testimony follows : Rev. D. P. Hart, Dowelltown, Tenn., says: "I was troubled for .years by disordered kidneys. I had such terri ble pain in the small of my back that 1 couldn't rest well. The kidney se cretions were irregular in passage, be ing scant at times, then again profuse. Doan's Kidney Pills Wire finally brou ght to my attention and I began using them.

Foster-Milburn Co., Props., Buffalo, N. Y. , impulses for godly living. From the Sabbath school altars are coming the men and women who are to mould and shape the des'inieg of the nations of this world. By far the larger per cent of those coming into the church today are trained up in the Sabbath school. It is the church school,- and ' the church's strongest auxiliary. No oth er religious institution has ever been planted in so many destitute places. and served so well as an entering wedge for larger tbigs. No other re ligious institution has ever touched so many young live3 and quickened them into forces for the building up of God's kingdom. How awful tho cr.'me of any who will impede the progress of this God-honoring, soul-saving institution. Strange, indeed, that there are pro fessed friends of the Sabbath school who prove to be its active enemies. There is a prevailing custom in this section that has destroyed more Sab bath schools and decoyed more people away from 'the stud yof God's word than any other influence the devil has yet Invented. I refer to the Sunday decoration and the Sunday all-day s'nging. This custom Is all the more dangerous because it poses as a very pious affair. Why, they sing songs of praise to God and decorate the graves oi iovea ones, oesiaes tney nave a speech or sermon on the occasion. Yes, and the "dinner on the ground" you promise the public and the other attractions connected thereiwth serve to decoy the unthinking and careless ones away from the Sabbath school Sunday after Sunday, until they lose a if interest or break the habit of going to Sabbath school, and as .a result many of the schools are destroyed or so crippled in their work that little good is accomplished. A little obser vation will convince any one, with in telligence, that 'here is an all-day sing ing or Sunday decoration in reach of almost, if not every. Sabbath school in this section throughout most of the year. From early spring to late fall there Is a class of people who race from place to place Sunday after Sun day in search for the loaves and fishes. or to see the crowd and be seen. The remainder of the year the roads are rough, the weather bad and they re main at home. So these people (and they are many) are lost t othe church and Sabbath school. Ridiculous as it may sound, it is frequently the case that the officers and teachers of the Sabbath schools leave their post of duty and follow the crowd. Sometimes the pastors will "call in" their appoint ments for these things and deliver the whole thign over to the devil. Satan has had many thousands of years ex perience fishing for Adam's fallen chil dren and he knows just how to bait his hook. So he contrives to have some "jack-leg preacher" or some old brok en down public speaker, who can't get a crowd any other way, to go over and Bugarcoat the performance, or flavor it ace which he piously calls religion, , I concede there may be some who go to worship God in song or to plant flowers on a grave in loving memory of friends departed; but who has any right to steal God's day for a decora tion just to save a week day? Who has any right to rob God's church of her school even though it be to sing good songs? Can we not sng these same songs around the Sabbath school altar just as acceptably to our God? Why select the Sabbath school hour for such a spread on, and invite the whole country to leave the post of duty to revel in these things? Why not have the singing or decoration on some other day and thus add to in stead of subtract from the church of God? But do you say they won't come on a week day? Then the heart is not n it and it would be best left off. , Truly yours. Fount Smith. undersigned. LEE BROCK, Referee. H. S. BARNES, Attorney.
