We can truthfully say that The Henry Coir ty Weekly has not deter icrated from its traditional brilliancy under the management of our young triend Johnson. Those little Japs are just hungry for a spanking and they will jut get it if they fool with the great American bear hunter. Dr. B.Lacy Hacy has had a num ber of calls in the last few days. One from the church he first joined, and where he was ordained.

If there are no women angels, as some of the New York preachers claim it vill be harder than ever to get the men to go to Heaven. When a man marries a woman for her money, or tne woman marries the man for his money, neither get their money’s worth. Twenty pretty Indiana girls donned men’s attire and organized a dancing club. There’s one thing sure, they may wear ’em but we bst they ean’t strike a match once out of trials. Charches will sing and sing ‘Reseue the Perishing ” nut when a measlier, young or old, makes r misstep and goes wrong, there is verv little at tempt to rescue , The tendency ie to push them deeper down, rather than rescna them. This is especially true in regard to girls or wome -1 . They sing ‘‘rescue,” but act “push down.” In the case of men itis a littlj bet ter. unlesshis failure is in his bnsi ness. Then instead of praying for him all prey for him. Mr. C.B.Biles had the misforfcnue to have his barn with about 800 bush els corn burned Monday night. Mr. Biles thinks it was incendary.

Why Christ is your best friend, because he can give you ever lasting happiness. No one else can; So my friend you had better come and be saved while you can. You wont have any chance after death. If you knew how much better you would en joy life as a Christian you would not wait one day. O what an awful time the sinner will have if he neglects the aving of his soul! My sinner friend it will not lesson our legitimate pleas ure but give you a welcome Jto a hap py home forever; Miss it and your doom is sealed forever. My fiiend you had better not be so wedded to the thing* of this world that will send you to everlasting torment.

FRIDAY, Jan. 18th, 1907. to leave this wicked world? The Bible say :‘‘Choose ye this day whom ye will serve” So He has given you your choice. If you choose the tilings of this world to our precious savior no one is to blame but your self ;so now my sinner friend choose the better way and come to Christ while you have the chance. You don’t know how long you may have this chance. You see many are taken very suddenly. The Bible says ‘ be ye also ready” sc now my friend I advise you not to neglect auy longer. Mrs. Respata. Some Sayings of Sam Jones. ■‘A man’s likes and dislikes deter mine hiscarachter ” ‘‘The cross is just halfway between heaven and hell.” ‘‘Every time a fellow gets his mean ness off, it is dyspepsia.” ‘‘A man who believes only when he can see doesn’t believe he has got a backbone,” ‘‘Some people are mighty gentle; so gentle that the devil has nothing to fear from them.” “If we would only quit our lying, we would get nine tenths ofourdiffi out on the road.” ‘‘The trouble with humanity is, men dislike so much to give them selves to God just as they are.” To the Baptist Churches.

B Lacy Huge Asst.V. Pres, of Foreign Mission Board. Old Mines Exploded. A strange fatility is reporten from Japun. A floa ting mine, a legacy from the Russo Jaoanese. War, which has ever since been drifting around on the sea, struck the shore at Akita on the west coast ut Japan and explo ding killed a ten and wounded 150 villagers. The sea of Japan was sown with these floating mines in that war and thtv have been a source of much fsur ever since ana several of them have exploded. That one of them should work such murderous havoc among inno ent villagers more than a year after the close of the war is a petheticaily sad event. War is dread ful enough whi e it Is doing its work without leaving oehind it such flout ing mines of murder that may carry destruction and death 4 to some far way shore All evil has this mysterious power of perpetuating itself and ex ploding where it is never expecitd The words we speak the deeds w uu may long float around bearing in their bosom the evil we put in them : to blow up in some .unexpected way. The drnnkard may set such mines loose or the stream of his descend ant. and wealth is often suce r float ing mines in a family, while in is not true thot"The good is oft intered with their bones” it is true that ‘‘The evil men do lives after them ’ The Presbyterian Banner well says: ‘‘Let us set nothing afloat on the sea of life that can carry death to any shore” ALL OVER THE HOUSE. Helpful Hints For the Housekeeper. Value of Tissue Paper. The tissue paper in which parcels are wrapped should never be thrown away, but smoothed out and laid away in a drawer for future use. A small pad of tissue paper sprinkled with methylated spirit will give a brilliant polish to mirrors, picture glasses and crystal. The pad, used without the spirit, is excellent for burnishing steel, rubbing grease spots oft furniture, polishing silver, etc. J r or packing glass, china and ornaments a roll of tissue paper is invaluable. When packing hats a wisp of tissue paper should be twist ed round all upstanding ends of ribbons, ospreys and wings to pre vent crushing. Dress and blouse sleeves should be stuffed with soft paper and a sheet of it placed be tween the folds. Silk handker chiefs, ribbons and lace should all be ironed between a layer of tissue paper, and the latter is a line pol isher of steel buckles and hatpins. Simplified Art.

" McCORD’S MILL CHANGES HANDS To The Public: I have recently bought the “Me Cord Grist Mill,” situated on Yellow Water Creek, near the city of Jackson. This mil! has*had. for years, the reputa tion of making “The Best Wa ter Ground Meal,” mill in this section, It will be oper ated by the veteran miller, Mr. J. T. Bennett, which is a guar antee that its former high re cord will be kept up, and that its customers will receive prompt service, and courteous treatment. The mill will be thouroughly renovated, and put in condition to grind from 5o to 75 bushels per day; so do not be afraid ot delays, but bring your corn right on, to the mil!. Mr. Bennett will keep fresh meal o 1 hand, to exchange with those who wish to exchange corn for meal. Farmers in coming to Jackson to market can bring along a few sacks of corn without any delay. The merchants of Jackson will keep fresh stock Dt this McCords Water Ground Meal, t to supply their numerous customers. So al wa\ s call for McCords Water (1 round Meal, and take no sub si itute, and you may rest as sured, when you g w t it, (if its fresh; and ground out of good corn, you get good meal, This mill being a “lionie Institu tion,” and near enough for you to se<* and know what is being done, I hope to be fa vored with your friendship and patronage. Kespeetfully Yomrs, J. W. Childs; Our Pulpit. ‘‘This people have I formed for my self; they shall anew forth my praise.” Isa 48-21. ‘‘The legend runs that there on stood in an old baronial oastle a mu sical instrument upon which nobody could play . It was complicated in itf mechanism, and during years of dis use the dust had gathered and clog ged it, while dampness and variations of temperature had robbed the string of their tone. Various experts had tried to repair it, but without succeM and when the hand of a player swept over the chords, it woke only harsh, discords and sounds. But there came one day to the castle a man of anoth er sort. He was the maker of the la instrument and saw what was amis*, and what was needed for its repair, and with loving care and skill, ha freed the wires from the encumbered dust,and adjusted those which were awry and brought the jang ling strings into tans, and then th* hall rang with bursts of exquisite music.” And so with these souls of ours so disordered by sin that everything ie in compusion, our Jives send forth only discords and nuvlovely sounds. We have tried to adjust the oumgs of our lives but without success. Oor Maker nas oome and asked that w# turn over to him the task of repairing and readjustment. He will set all right and make perfect the music of our lives. Our Heavenly Father, we prey Thee In Jesus name take this diseor dant. life of mine, and ;so repuir and raadjnstit, that it will produce the melody for which it was orsgina lly de ighed; ana constructed.
