Wo left Culebra on Saturday, arrived here Monday about 3:30 p. m. Like this place fine, I went ashore yesterday to stand watches at our field set station at rifle range. They are having small arms target practice. The field wireless set handles all messages to and from rifle range. Thocountry around Guantanamo Bay resembles parts of Texas. Low mountains and cactus can be seen iu any direction. There is nothing ashore, outside of the radio station, range oltiee and canteen. This is my first time to see corral along the beach. The ground is covered with it. I presume you have been reading of the Involution in Hayti. The Montana has been there for about one week. The trouble became so bad that it was necessary to send the South Carolina to Port Au Prince yesterday. The press that comes from Sayville, L. I., said last night that the revolution was over as the President had resigned and taken refuge on German Cruiser Veneta. Both U. 8. and German Sailors are guarding legation and office buildings. We leave here either Saturday or Sun day for some other bay in Cuba. I have forgotten the name. Have been going in swimming every day since our arrival here. M. W. Palmer.

Wishing you all prosperity possible, We remain. Williams Ii Adams Telephone 421 306 East Main Street The Immortality of the Soul Kind Friends, Ladies and Gentlemen Through the favor of an indulgent fru gality. the time has rolled 'round and finds us active on the occasion of an other commencement, and we have been chosen to discuss the theme, "The Inv mortality of the Soul." . Had it not been, for philosophy, there had remained perhaps no footprints of any unbelievers in this great article, for the sense of nature would have directed all right, but philosophy misguide many; for tliose wao aeniea ltunior tality did not deny the common sense of nature, which-they felt as well as others; but they rejected the motive as though it false, because they could not find physical causes to support the be lief, or thought that they found phys ical causes to effectually overthrow it This account we owe to Cicero, one o the best judges of antiquity, who tell us plainly that the reason why man rejected the belief of the immortality of the soul was because they could not form the conception of an unbodied soul so that infidelity is of no olde: date than philosophy, and a future state was not doubted till men had puzzled and confounded themselves in their search after the physical reason of the soul's immortality. And now consider how the case stands, and how far the evidence of nature is weakened by tbe authority of such unbelievers. All man kind receive the belief of a future life urged to it every day by what they feel transacted in their own breasts, but some philosophers reject this opinion because they have no conception of a soul distinct from the body, as if the immortality of the soul depended merely upon the strength of human imagination. Were the natural evi dence of immortality built upon any particular notion of a human soul the evidence of nature might be overthrown by showing the impossibility or im probability .of such notion. But the evidence of nature is not concerned in any notion, and all the common notions may be false, and yet the evidence of nature stands good, which only supposes man to be rational and consequently accountable, and if any philosopher can prove the contrary ho may then, if his word will afterwards pass for any thing, reject this and all other evidence whatever. It is hard to reason with those who feel themselves competent to build a new universe, or at least to arrange and improve one already in being. -Some of our modern world-makers amuse us with very splendid imaginations of what ought to be and then gravely proceed to teach us what will and must hereafter be. Even in the incipiency of their en deavors they object to our own terra queous habitation as encumbered with so much sea, so many large deserts, so many bleak mountains, and subjected to tbe dread extremes of frigid and tor rid zones. They would have made an earth whose surface would have been at the worst but a series of inclined planes, widely extended and gently sloping in all directions. These would have been interspersed with a few small lakes and rivers, occasionally variegated with a pyramidal peak or a beautiful grotesque little mountain, forming Elysian land scapes. No rock deserts, no Libyan sands, no dismal swamps would have disfigured their rich and beautiful earth, fanned with balmy breezes mild as Eden and refreshed with delicious oders em anating from the garden of God. No burning mountain, no volcanic fires, no desolating earthquakes would have frightened any inhabitants of their blest earth. No mighty cataracts, no fierce tempests, no appalling thunders would have terrified the most flagrant transgressor. Nay, they would have prevented transgression by absolute fate and enacted virtue by an invincible ne cessity. Their heavens would have been studded with alternating suns of mag nificen dimensions, while planets of every variety and comets of orbits the most eccentric would have perpetually sported in fields of ether for the amuse ment of its laughing inhabitants. ' And as for hell the dread "elsewhere" no such ungracious lake of boiling sulphur, no such fathomless gulf of pitchy dark ness would have disturbed the imagina tion of the sons of pleasure. And should sin or folly by any unforseen casuality have appeared in their system of nature it would have been' instantly annihilat ed and thus prevented from spreading its dire contagion through the unaffect ed regions of rational intelligence. Among the stricter sort of religion ists such speculators are not indeed of much reputation. But instead of this bold and presumptuous class of real skeptics we have, under the banner of the Christian Bible, a few rare phiios ophers of much intellectual pride who can so manage both prophets and apos tles as to oblige them to depose in favor of any assumption they may choose to commend to public patronage. These subject the testimonies of saints and martyrs to the torture of an illogical and ungrammatical criticism, much to the annoyance of less pretending and more modest professors. But before we examine any of their learned labors we must hastily glance at the phil osophic scheme which has given rise to all these efforts. It is assumed that in a future life men will have their present animal affections Cumberland River Improvement The announcement froni Washington that the Board of Army Engineers has decided to recommend tha canalization of the Cumberland River will bring uueh gratification to thoso Kentuckians and Tennesseans who have been hoping and striving for this mu'h-needed im provement. The Federal Government already has spent a great deal of money on the up per Cumberland with some resultant benefit. To secure benefit in the largest degree, however, it is necessary that the Bcheme of improvement should be carried out on the original plans. The building of a complete series of dams will give the river a navigable stage of water all the year around. In this way there will be a reliable outlet for the products of the country along the up per Cumberland. In the present con ditions of the waterway there is no such outlet, as the region is without railroad facilities and its progress is sorely handicapped. Regular and dependable transporta tion lines along the river would develop a large steamboat traffic and would quicken the energies and vitalize the industries of a great expanse of coun try. The region has abundant mineral resources and is agriculturally product ive, but buried wealth is of small value and agricultural and industrial efforts need the stimulus of marketing facil ities with other sections of the country. In the absence of reliable means of shipment there is little incentive for farmers to produce any large surplus Of their products or for manufacturing and mining companies to undertake the utilization of the country's abundant raw material. The Kentucky and Tennessee Sona tors and Congressmen who made such a valiant fight for this improvement have earned the gratitude of the entire pop ulation of the upper Cumberland coun try.
