Mrs. Reuter snent several weeks here some three years ago and is pleasantly remembered by a large numoer. Miss Bessie A.

Mr. Chafer preached at the afternoon meeting last Sunday. He is an au thority on the Bible and devotas most of his time to teaching the scrip tures in the Moody Institute.

All who are qualified voters in the town, and who are democrats, and white, have a right to participate. There doesn't seem to be much of a scramble for the offices. It is understood that Mr. Borson has declined to be a can didate for mayor, and that friends of Paul C. Smith have been urging his name. But Mr. .smith also says he doesn't want it, and will not be a undulate. O. for a Gutteridtre to step into the breach? . PAGE NO. SEVEN Good Out QEvil By DWICHT NORWOOD ICE OF ELECTION.

The work is being done on plans laid down by Civil Engineer Stallings of Palatka who gives assurance that the sewers will put an end to the constant wear ing away of the street level by the heavy rains. Some comment ad verse to the sewer pipe provided for the work has been made. In a talk with Mr. Stallings, who was here last Friday giving the levels, he stated that the contract called for "seconds," but that many had been injured in transit, and he had designated those in the supply which could be used. And that there were a plenty to give the town a lasting sewer and one that would work. - The contract has been let to Mr. Rafferty and the contrac tor is to give the town just such a sewer as was arranged for in the contract Mr. Stallings also said that all the pipe was cemented to gether where joined and that the ce ment would be really stronger than Mr. Stallings is a most competent engineer he knows, j Southfield Bible Conference. The thirteenth annual Bible Confer ence opened on Sunday and is more largely attended than in any previ ous year. the speakers were Fas tor Wm. L.

Seldom has the Conference been fa vored with teachers whose ministry is more enjoyed or more poular than this season. The Conference closes on Friday night March 24th. Plans are being made for a much more extended meet ing next year and courses of Bible study will be offered which should attract many christian workers- from the north and south. To Keep Stopper From Sticking. A very little glycerin smeared around the 'glass stoppers ot bottles will keep them from sticking for a long time. As I entered the station I ran up against a beautiful display of flowers In a shop wludow. I have always been fond of flowers, and, entering the shop, I bought a rose, an American Beauty, und put It In a buttonhole of my coat On reaching my destination, stepping from the train, I ran Into something more beautiful than the rose. At least it was more engaging. A young girl who seemed to be taking In with rapid glances those who were alighting fixed her eyes upon me, gave a sign of recognition, started forward. halted, then as I was passing her caught my baud and said: "Walter!" 1 am free to admit that had the young lady been an old lady or even a homely young lady I should have at once informed her that she was mis taken In the person, and' 1 am free to admit that this is what I was In honor bound to do. But I didn't. I looked at her and said: "Are you'' "Yes, I'm Lillian. If you hadn't worn the rose I don't believe I should have recognized you." "That is not surprising consider ing" I gave her time to finish what 1 dared not risk finishing myself. "We'll talk later. Just now we must be going. You must have your trunk sent to the house." 1 demurred, on the ground that 1 would incommode the family, where upon she said that there was no one in the house but her mother and her self, and her mother, being an Invalid, was for the present keeping her room. This was, to say the least unfortunate for my self respect, for tt threw In my way au added temptation. I suffered myself to be guided to a cab and, tell ing the young lady that I had no trunk with me, was driven to her home, an eminently respectable residence, and was at once sent up to my room. On the bureau stood a photograph of a youth probably five or six years younger than myself. It arrested my attention because it resembled me. A maid brought me some towels, and 1 hazarded asking her a few questions, "Who is that?" pointing to the pic ture. "I thiuk that it's Miss Lillian's flansay." Before the maid left the room 1 had enough information to last me till I could get more. I learned that Walter was an objectionable person to Miss Lillian's mother because he was con sldered wild and could, not support a wife. He was expected any day to arrive in order to arrange for the wed ding. He and Lillian had been be trothed when they were very young and had not met since. I went downstairs. Dinner was on the table, and Lillian and I dined alone together. The first thing I said to her after being seated was: "Has your mother withdrawn her ob jections to me?" "I can't say that she has. You must try to break down her prejudice by being nice to her." now I fenced to prevent Lillian from learning that I was an impostor would take too long to tell. Nearly everything I said was intended to draw forth information to help me In my deception. I was In constant ter ror for fear Walter would appear and expose me. Had I known what he was doing at that moment I should have felt easier. After dinner I proposed that I should visit mamma and try to placate her. 1 found the old lady very much preju diced against me. I asked her what was the basis of her opposition to me and learned that it was general worth- lessnoss and especially that I had con tracted the liquor habit Notwith standing this lamentable condition I felt comforted. I could cure myself, and t lie other follow could not At least I believed that if I chose I could cut hi ui out before he could reform. In oi'der to gain time and not ex pose my deception I, made a plea of being tired with traveling, though I hud come but twenty miles, and went to bed early. What bothered me was tbiu it was naturally expected that I would curess my fiancee. And under the circumstances I was not quite so base as to do so. Ouce in my room I was free from that temptation. I dared not attempt to go through the next day without giving myself away and resolved on a confession. And this part of the episode I flatter myself 1 handled very well. I confessed to Ky prospective mother-in-law. At the same time I proposed, with her con currence, to find out what was keeping my double and if he was really worthy of her daughter. A desire to avail her self of my services saved me from what I deserved, and having been fully posted by her I disappeared from the bouse without Lillian's knowledge, took a train for the place where Wal ter lived and found that he was recov ering from a debauch and getting ready to visit his fiancee. I sent him a telegram In his mother-in-law's name to await a letter, returned to her and Lillian and before seeing the latter had an Interview with the former. When I saw Lillian again she knew alL She declined to meet me till her feelings and her mind were somewhat composed and she had become sensi ble of the fact that I bad really done her a faTor. There Is nothing more of this story to tell except that I married the girl I had so dishonorably saved from a worse fat.

A Cynical View of Past Methods and Those of tho Present. Law. more especially criminal law, has usually been an occult science. It is still the practice in Burma, we be lieve, to give two disputants candles of the same size, to be lighted at the same time. The one whose candle burns longest gets judgment against the other. Less than 100 years ago a defendant in an English criminal trial appealed to the ordeal of battle, and the court was more or less surprised to find that the ancient law on which he relied had never been repealed. Determining a man's guilt or Inno cence by bis ability to walk on hot plowshares or carry a hot Iron or drink a poisonous decoction or by thro win hint bound Into va.,er has been practiced lor ages among niaay peoples. The medieval method of let ting accused and accuser Jight it out with weapons was comnlHi over Ear rope. Our modest ancestors confessed their Inability to find the merits of tae cause and so relegated the whole af fair to the Intervention of supernatural agencies. The main difference Is that we are less modest Instead of the ordeal of battle or the old key and Bi ble test or the "sieve witch," we hane ' the defendant play a game of trip the i court If be can catch the Judge pot ting down an "1" dot over an e" ke wins and Is pronounced Innocent Sat- ' urday Evening Post t Zino Nails. .
