WHAT SHALL, WE HEAD?
Paul once stirred up Ephesus with
some lively sermons about the sins of
that place. Among the most import
ant results oi these sermons was the
faot that the citizens brought out
their bad books and papers and in a
publio place made a buntire of them.
One of the wants of this community
Is a great bontire of b'-d books and
newspapers. We have in this vicinity
enough of such fuel to make a blaze
600 feet high. Take forth this trasti
and put it into the tire, and let it bc
known in the "^Asen?** o' God stii?
, angels and ~e_rJliat you are going to
rid your homes of this curse of profit
gate literature. We believe it is in
tended that the printing-press shall
be a means for the world's rescue and
evangelization. The great last battle
of the world will not be fought with
swords and guns, but with types and
presses, a puritied literature triumph
lng over and crushing out forever
that which is depraved. The great
est blessing that ever came to this
nation is that of an elevated litera
ture, and thc greatest scourge has
been that of unclean literature. This
last has its victims In all departments
of life. It has helped to till Insane
asylums and penitentiaries. The
London plague was nothing to lt.
What books and papers do you read?
A newspaper is onlv a book in a
swilter and more portable shape. In
selecting your papers do you make no
distinction between the tree of life
and the tree of death? Cherish good
books and newspapers. Beware of
the bad ones. Renjimln Franklin
said that the reading of Cotton Math
er's essay on "Doing Good" molded
his entire life. May not the reading
of this Home Circle Column, crude
though it mayjbe, have an ?nlluence
upon your children in molding their
lives while they are yet easily Im
pressed. We strive hard to keep the
columns of this paper clean and pure
so it can be warmly welcomed into
the best homes of this community.
In our next issue we will have some
thing to say about novel reading.
FOND OK CONTENTION.
As individuals, as families, commu
nities and even as nations wo seem to
be coming more fond of contentions.
It ls contentions more than any other
one thing that takes from the Home
Circle its every charm. Russia and
Japan at the present time are only
samples of the contention that can bu
found in too many homes. In this
country where our blue skies are full
of robins and doves and meadowlarks,
we select as our national symbol, the
tierce and filthy eagle. In Great
Brittan where they have lambs and
deer their symbol ls tho merciless
lion. In Russia, where from between
her frozen north and blooming south
all kinds of beasts abide, they choose
as their smybol the growling bear.
So fond are we of contention that we
climb out through the heavens and
baptize one of the other planets with
tho spirit of battle and call it Mars
after the god of war. Wc suppose

than the Uko sum from a single indi

A dispatch from Chatham, Mass.,

of the loss of the steamer Portland In

Wentworth is the worth dlsi.ster that

Jonatables Seizo Two Hundred and
Fifty Callona Whiskey.
The dispensary constables Thurs
lay night made the largest haul they
uve got In some months when they
elzed 250 gallons of c>rn whiskey.
Chey think it is the fair week suppl}
if Sellers, King of Blind Tigers.
Sellers announced about two months
igo that he was going out of business
md his place on Gervais street is now
)perated by a man named Moore. Mr.
Moure has been up before Dr. Stanley
'or selling liquor recently, however.
Wut the constables think Sellers is
itlll at ifc. OQ Friday, September
JOih, they learned that 250 gallons of
wm bad been shipped here over the
southern consigned to "No. 7, Colum
bia." After midnight ttie car was
inloaded and next day Sellers pre
icntei the bill of lading, properly en
iorsed to the agent. The constables
lave been looking for the 2f>0Tgallons
Thursday night they found it in an
mthoase on the lot, corner Plato and
Huger streets, two blocks from the
aenitenliary. The name of the man
residing in the lu,use was given to the
ionstables as "Artie E llsun," but no
such name appears in the directory.
The place is 0:1 the sams block as the
louse in which Mau le Allen was cour
iered. E lison will be brought be fore
die recorder Friday morning to tell
low the whiskey happened to be on
lis premises. lb was sail Thursday
light that ho h id rented the outhouse
?o Sell?is, and unless he can substan
tiate some such claim as that he will
lave to answer to the charge of stor
ng contraband liquors.
The information leading to the dis
lovery of the liquor was secured by
constable Garner and the seizure
Thursday night was made by Con
tables Garner and Elson of District
Jhief Osborne's squad.
That a blind tiger should have the
erve to import 250 gallons of whiskej
oto Columbia ls remarkable enough
ut that the car should be unloade I
a thc dead of night is even more dar
ug. This incident may bring still
urther trouble upon the ei>ns!gnee.
