The fact of environing the cele
bration' of Tennessee's centennial
statehood with beer and wine drink
ing is remindful of some State his
tory, the memory of jwhich ia painful
to tho pride and manhood or our
people. Is it not true that the
licensed drink traffic can put In its
bloody quiver this well-known fact,
that it shadowed as a curse, and
finally tdew and laid in untimely
graves soma or Tennessee's tallest
sons or genius: winged, in the
meridian of their exalted career,
men whom the state and the nation
recognized as foremost in states
manship, in eloquence and letters?
We name William T. Haskell, the
bewitching eloquence of whose lips
the drink demon palsied and taught
to syllable the meaningless jargon
of wild delirium, and so pitilessly
dogged his way that he sought
escape in the friendly seclusion of
an asylum for the insane, and there,
like an eagle caged, he neat his life
out against those prison lars. This
sad collapse of a superbly equipped
son or our sou in the mid day of his
remarkably brilliant career as a
matchless orator was the work of
that petted license infamy which his
mother-state nas established as one
of the agencies by which she earns
money to run her government.
Civil government could have as a
source or revenue no more diaboli
cal means than a business that i
earns its profits on the spoliation of
human lire ana tne wreckage or hu
man happiness. '
There was Meredith P. Gentry, a
man of admitted intellectual and
political force in his day. He was
judiu'ed by ' drink - to debauch his
sturdy manhood, with all its bril
liant gifts and graces, and surrender
his hopes and ambition, and life it
self, at the remorseless bidding of
Andrew Johnson, a man who, in
Tennessee tradition and history,
stood in his day without a superior
in natural endowments and in an
ambition that knew no defeat and
halted at no opposition, was led
captive by drink, and lowered his
manhood to the drunken level of
gutter bestialism. When . he fell,
the Tennessee liquor' system was
credited with a piece of first class
blood guilty worK.

Mrs. "But" is our next door neigh

Jonas, whenever he sees her march
ing up the walk, remarks, "My dear,
here comes Mrs. 'But.'" He is not
in the habit of callingpeople names ;
but he says it merely to put me on
my guard, for he knows our neigh
bor's failing. She is a bright, breezy
little woman, and as long as the con
versation is confined to the weather
and household alfairs I quite enjoy
chatting with her; but the moment
that a human being, living or dead,
chances to be mentioned, I quake.
The first time she called it was
soon after we moved into the neigh

brown-eyed girl of fifteen, gifted
with a wonderful ear for melody,

had offered her mine.

is such a warm hearted little crea

as the door closed behind her.

speaker," said our neighbor, who
had joined us as we came out of the
lecture-room, "and he seems very
sincere, but I can't help feeling a
little suspicious; I knew him when
he was a boy."
Jonas made haste to change the
subject; a word of encouragement
would have resulted in our hearing

the moment we were by ourselves,

Editor Herald: There now! It

air is chilly. I'm housed. Just a
week has passed since I closed a

week has been spent in a dilligent
effort to reap the fruits of the meet

four weeks, but the people were
about two weeks realizing that a
pastor was also an evangelist. We
had forty-two conversions, and 35
accessions. Many claimed conver

ready in the church. Seventy have
been added to tho church since con

of the work, but in it.
