avenue, to Inquire Into ihn death of
3anlcl Jones, the breaker boy who
wns killed In the Cupouso collleiy on
Won Jay inornlnir. Seveinl -wilnefwi
were examined, but from the Intiulry
made no blame can he attached In any
one for the unfortunate ucrldent.
The verdict rendered by the Juty
was to the effect that young Jones
came to his death by beliiR ciiusiit
and crushed Into the conveyor located
In the breaker and that the accident
was duo to no fault of the breaker
The Jurors believed that Jones' death
remitted from carelessness on his own
part, as his body was found In a place
where his occupation did not require
him to be and he was evidently dtawn
there by curiosity. The Jurors were

'The Prodigal Son."
Rev. W. II. William, the diumiuor
preacher, look for his subject last
night In the revival meeting "Tho
Prodigal Son." He says that a person
need not dtlnk whiskey, swear und do
nil kinds of wicked things to be a
prodigal. All persons dilftlng from
God and heaven aie piodlgals. All per
sons dissipating their talents and
tin owing away opportunities are prodi
gals. The first mistake was when ho
received money from his father Just
for the asking. Parents should know
what their boys nie doing with their
money. What he blew In was what
his father placed In his hands. Wo
should try and get more Into our hoy's
head and heart. Then they can not
This boy, I think, had It In his mind
that he could get through without
God, not needing any of the father's
advice. He was of the smart Alec
kind, the devil's daillng, and as all
gentlemen of leisure aie the devil's
pets. I don't know where he went,
but I think to the city. Boys that
have a desire for the life that this boy
had usually go to the city.
If I wanted to And him I would have
gone to the curd table, the bald
headed row In .some cheap show, tho
ball loom, the pool room, the race
track or Sunday excursion, for these
are all way stations on tho way to hell.
He Joined himself to a citizen of
that countv, that Is one who knows
the ropes and all thu runaways of sin.
I think this citizen Is the one who
knows all the holes-ln-the-wall and
backdoor entrances on Sunday. A per
son enn go to the dovll in about ten

will arise." Wr put It off. God's time

Why a Cold Kills
At this season of tho year coughs nnd colds nro
prevalent because of n lowsrod vitality. Tho cold
does not yield and too often pneumonia super
venes. "Even then," says a high authority on
this disease, "pneumonia does not ordinarily provo
fatal except in the case of very old or very young
people. The danger arises when It is complicated
by heart or kidney disease." This is the secret
of tho ravages of pneumonia. If the body be
strong and the blood pure an ordinary cold Is im
mediately thrown off, but when the bodily vigor Is
weakened by excessive work, worry or grief and
the blood is vitiated by acid which the kidneys
ought to and will remove when healthy, the dread
pneumonia too often claims its victim. If the blood
be kept puie by the uee of that great kidney speci
fic, Warner's Snfo Cure, a vigorous body will fol
low nnd coughs, colds nnd attendant discomforts
of tho winter months bo wholly preventod.
