a 'vertisement which appeared sim- 
ultaneously in hundreds of newspa- 
pers through! Kentueky is a fake 
and has beat every newspaper which 
had faith enough in the alleged col- 
lege to oarry its advertisment, the 
Register among the balance. 

The Morse School of Telegraphy 
olaims to be the successor to the odo- 
riferous so Galled Globe Telegraph 
College, We know nothing of this 
save that being bsnefioiarles to the 
advertisment of the defunct (if it had 
existed in fact) college afore said, it 
refuses to pay for the same. In aur 
candid opinion there is something ex- 
tremely rotten in Denmark and we 
would advise would-be patrons to 
"look a lettle out.” The Post-oifioe 
department has been requested to 
look into these peculiar methods of 
business.— Richmond Register.

have thrown so many clods on the

To those who are not acquainted 
witu Kentucky politics and Kentucky 
politicians, such tremendous up- 
heavels of righteousuess and purity 
as the Republicans are now giving 
vent to must be peculiarly edifying. 
It must seem to the onlooker that 
there is no party more earnestly 
striving for the right than the Re- 
publican party. Its organs of in- 
formation through Which it tells the 
world of such things and intentions 
as it may be proper for the world to 
know, have said that it is so. It s 
leaders have spread the glad tidings 
far and wide. It’s orators speak of 
nothing elae. The statement is con- 
tinually ringing in our ears. It is 
ever before ub day and night. 

But will the people be deceived by 



in the State of Kentucky who be- 
lieves in the sincerity of Republican 
professions? Can it be possible that 
a party which taken upon itself the 
hurculean task of shielding murder- 
and fugitives from 
justice is to be again handed the 
power which it has so grossly mis- 
used. Let Democrats unite and if 
there are reforms to be made, make 
them, but not turn over the task to 
unscrupulous cunning knaves of the 
party which is two thirds composed 
of ignorant blacks and lawless moun- 


cbasable administration will gr|| np 
a venal and purchasable army. *V ith 
corruption in the military braich of 
our government militarism is b; no 
means the least dangerous frjit of

for the year 1899 
it appears that the total imports from 
tbe United States and Canada for the 
six months ending December 31, 
1899, amounted in value to only 
$768, 507, whilst the exports to North 
America for that poriod amounted to 
$2 141,576. In other words tbe total 
trade between the United States and 
Canada and the Pnilippiues for the 
last six months of the year 1899, 
exports and imports, amounted to 
l-.iss than three millions of dollars in 
value, or not so mueh as we are ex- 
pending every week in order to pacify 
the inhabitants of tuose Islands. 
We have beard much of the wealth 
of the Philippines, of tbe commer- 
cial advantages their annexation 
would bring to the United States, 
and yet tbe cold figures furnished by 
the government show their foreign 
commerce is absolutely insignifleent. 
The total value of the commerce of 
the Philippine Islands with all the 
nations of the earth for tbe last six 
months of 1899 was 21,000,000 in 
round numbers.

Last week we made editorial men- : 
tion of the “first fruits” of Imperial- 1 
ism. We noted the unholy war in 
the Philippines, the death of thous- 
ands of brave men sent to rot in a 
clime deathly to men, not acclimated 
We noted the robberies in Cuba and 
all tbe other nasty results of tbe Mc- 
Hanna policy. This week we want 
to call attention especially to anoth- 
er effect of that policy: an effect 
which if carried out to its logical 
conclusion, means the demolition of 
Republican institutions, the abroga- 
tions of Democratic privileges. In 
tracing these results to tbeir logical 
as well as looking forward to 
tbeir logical seqcence, it may not be 
amiss to refer to the past experience 
of nations along this line. Greeie 
stands out as the greatest exemplar 
of original Republican institutions. 
Tbe Heleunic Republics, like the 
States of this Union, were governed 
by the will of the majority, selecting 
the worthiest, but there grew up in 
Greece a monied and a military aris- 
tocracy which dominated her coun- 
sels, sought fresh fields of conquest 
and — ruined Greece. Rome was at 
one time the land ot liberty , the home 
of freedom, where worth ruled and 
virtue triumphed ; but the patrition 
plutocracy insidiously ate his way 
into the.integnity of the Roman gov. 
ernment, as the canker destroyes the 
rose, and lot Rome fell, and the

There appeared in a recent issue 
of the Leader a card from Louis 
Pilcher in which he told of his 
“troubles.” While I know that 
what he said will have no effect, 
whatever, upon an) one as well ac- 
quainted with the gentleman (?) as 
we are, still, for fear someone not 
familiar with the circumstances 
may have been misled I write this 
to explain the situation. 

On Tuesday previous to the ap- 
pearance of the card in the Leader, 
8. S. Osboin and myself, acting for 
The Lexington Times Publishing 
Company, leased the Smiley plant 
which we intended using for the pur- 
pose of getting out the weekly Times 
until arrangements could be made to 
publish a daily paper; Louis Pilcher 
having the day before surrendered 
the office and all its fixtures to Mr. 
Smilev and ayned an agreemetft to 
that effect. ' When we took posses- 
sion of the office Tuesday morning 
Pilcher came in and began making 
arrangements to get out another is- 
sue of the Democrat, whereupon we 
informed him that we had leased the 
plant and that he would have to va-

Who are those who were bravest si:

and his wife? Mr. Atkins, the pets 
cuted minister of Jesus Christ, in Sc; '

day with his armed men and shout, 
in front of the house. Johu Brown

“Well, miss is Mr. Atkins here?” SI

Claverhouse said, “then yqu are a eh 
of the old block, are you? 1 have son., 
thing in my pocket for yon. It is 
nosegay. Some people call it a ihuui! 
screw, but’ I call it a nosegay.” Ai 
lie got off his horse and he put it " 
the little girl's hand and began to tin 
it until the bones cracked and si 
cried. He said: “Don’t cry! di n 

try! This isn’t a thumbscrew, tin 
is a nosegay.” And they heard tl. 
child’s cry, and the father and mothe 
tame out, and Claverhouse said: "li. 

It seems that you three have had yoi 
holy heads together, determined to di 
like all the rest of your hypoeriticn 
up good Mr. Atkins, pious Mr. Atkin.- 
you would die. I have a telescope wit;

he pulled out a pistol. “Now," he sail, 
"you old pragmatic, lest you shouh

the king, to say nothing of the glor 
of God and the good of our souls, 1 wi.

most expeditious style possible to blot 
your brains out.” 

John Brown fell upon his knees am 
began to pray. "Ah,” said Clavei 
house, “look out, if you are going t 
j.. ay; steer clear of the king, the corn 
cil and Richard Cameron." "O Lord, 
said John Brown, "since it seems n 
be Thy will that I should leave thi 
world for a world where I can lot 
Thee better and serve Thee more,

In the great conflict now raging iD 
Europe as in Ibis'" country between 
'liristiunity and agnosticism Dr. Tal- 
oiage has taken a decided stand, mid in 
this sermon declares his unwavering 
belief in Ihe ditine origin of the Scrip- 
tures; text, Matthew, 7:11), "Do men 
gather grapes of .thorns?" 

Not in this country. Not in any 
country. Thorns stick, thorns Incer

the master of apt and potent illustra

and I well know, that you cannot get 
that which is pleasant and henltlifu 
and good from that which is had.. I' 
you find a round, large, beautiful cl lis- 
ter of grapes, you know that it wu 
produced by a good grapevine and no 
from a tangle of Canada thistle. Nov 
if I can show you that this holy I ti lit* 
yields good fruit, healthful fruit, splen- 
did fruit, you will come to the eutiidu 
sion that it is a good Bible, and all ihe 
arguments of the skeptic against V 
when he tries to show it is a bad boo 
will go overboard. 

"Do men gather grapes of thorns' 
Cun a bad book yield good result! 
Skeptics with great vehemeure dechr 
: hut the Bible is a cruel book. Tin 
kail the story of the extermination .

wars and of the history of David a;

You have friends who have been 
he habit of reading the Bible a gre; 
uany years. Have yon noticed a tei 
iency to cruelty on their part? Ha- 
ou ever heard any of them come fi- 
nd practically say: ‘I have been re.'u

.if the Canaanites, and I am seized upr 
vi tli a disposition to cut. and slash ni 
maul and pinch and murder and kum 
.o pieces everything I can lay r. 
hands on.?" Have your friends in p; 
portion as they become diligent Hit* 
students and disciples of the Christ • 
the Bible shown a tendency towai 
massacre and murder and inanslnugl 
ter? Has that been your observai im 
What has been the effect upon ye;' 
children of this cruel book? Or if voi 
do not allow the book to be read it, 
your household, what has been the ef 
feet, upon the children of other house- 
holds where the word of God is hon- 
ored? Have they as a result of reading 
this cruel book gone forth with n cni  
spirit to pull the wings of flics and t 
pinion grasshoppers and to rob bin' 
nests? A cruel book ought to 
cruel people. If they diligently read 
and get. absorbed with its principli 
that cause must produce thateffeot. A 
what time did you notice tlnil ll 
teachings of this holy Bible create, 
cruelty in the heart and the life o 
George Peabody, of Miss Dix. of Floi 
once Nightingale, of John Howard-, o 
lohn Frederick Oberlin. of Abbot Lan

the biography of these people that ii 
proportion as they became friends n 
the Bible they became enemies to hi 
inanity? Have you not, on th 
contrary, noticed that- Mil the institi; 
tions of mercy established or being e. 
tablished were chiefly supported by tli 
friends of this book? There is the hos 
pital in war time. There nre 20 Chris 
tian women. They are binding, u

Where does the cruelty crop out? Tliej

they read it every night; they carry it
