"TO KISS Oil NOT TO KISS."
"If every innn were engaged to
every girl lie kissed in tills country,
Mornionlsm would bo prevalent."
. .Taking this chnnco remark as our
theme we would like to look into the
matter of "tlio kiss" In general.
"To kiss or not to kiss, that is the
Whether 'tis wiser to make such
exchange of affection general or not,
is of course a matter of opinion.
Women, for example, kiss each oth

as ho lay in his crib and groaned
nnd writhed in sheer helplessness,
as maiden and married aunts, grand
mothers, sisters, cousins to the Nth
degree, friends and neighbors in gen

Oh, yes, this matter of "the kiss" is
a great matter, a weighty thing!
For tho purchase of It thrones havo

England in a bloody conllict with
How many a man has kissed "not
wisely but too well," the records of
our divorce courts show.
Yes, dear reader, ns long as grass
grows and water flows, the "kiss"
will go on forever. Only do be
careful whom, and how, and, when,
and where you kiss!
THE VOW Kit OF SUGGESTION.
"The less a man thinks about
himself, and the least medicine be
takes, the better he is off." We
nro rather inclined to think that
there is a great deal of truth in tho
above remark recently made to us
by a member of the medical profes
sion. To the first half of the proposition
wo can heartily assent. How many
people we know who spend much
of their time in recounting a list of
their imaginary aches and ills. One
of tho easiest ways of insuring "a
good talk" and "a long listen" from
a friend is to ask him how he is feel

what apparent delight he relates to

need an enlightened public senti

possible. An ounce of prevention
even in medicine, is worth u pound

Tho defamers and muckrakera are

of Erostatus to-day who try to be

thing of mark; pulling down or try
ing to pull down some man's high
reputation, poisoning the minds and
hearts of those who come in con

false Hps daro not put in words.

Henry W. Reedier aptly said:
"Some men speak gold of you, some

is not Christian to make beads of
other men's faults and toll them over

Tho Lord Murder Trial.
Editor THE CITIZEN:
I was in your borough a few days
during the Lord trial, as most of my
customers were attending the pro
ceedings, I spent a part of several
days listening to the testimony and
making observations. I noted that
the audience was largely made up
of the gentler sex, but there was a
good representation of professional
men (including the clergy) and busi
ness men. In fact there wore men
from" all the walks of life, who seem
ed able to give considerable time to
attending- tho sessions.
There was no hesitation on the
part of any one with whom I spoke,
to give their opinion of tho case,
and I soon discovered that the wom
an had been convicted of tho crlmo
by most people long before sho was
tried by tho Jury; In fact, some peo
ple had convicted her before the
crimo was committed. Thero wore
a few, very few, who belloved sho
was innocent until proven guilty.
The Jury was carefully selected and
was a good one. It Is a question
whether a fairer set of men could
have been selected. The physical
condition of the court room was tho
cause of some complaint, but tho
mental atmosphere was VILE.
About 95 per cent, of tho people
present seemed to havo loaded up
with a mental prejudice of tho XXX
hatred brand, which was gratulously
let loose by their tongues upon the
woman at the bar. The very ulr was
charged with what our Christian
Science friends would call "Malici
ous Animal Magnetism," all directed
against the "woman In the case."
The Jury in the box need not to have
had any knowledge of human na
ture to see that the audience had
prejudged the case. Every point of
evidence which pointed to the guilt
of the prisoner was received by nods
of approval and smiles of satisfac
tion. Looks wero exchanged among
them which said "That's good,"
while on the other hand scowls of
disapproval were to be seen when
ever a witness testified in favor of
tho prisoner. I fell into a doze
when the counsel were making their
pleas, and I thought I saw behind
the Judge's desk, In full view of the
Jury and everyone in the court room,
the shadowy outline of tho figure of
MERCY with outstretched .hands
pleading for the erring one. I won
der if many or any had the same
experience? That night, before go
ing to tho revival meetings, I read
in the good book about tho woman
"caught In tho act" which, under
tho old Jewish law, gave those the
right to stone her to death, but who
brought her to the SAVIOR for con
demnation. Those Pharisees whom
we hold up to tho contempt of the
Christian world were not so bad af
That crowd in the court house,
me thinks, might have shouted
"Stone her; kill her!" before bring
ing" her to the mercy seat. I attend

THE HOLIDAY CHANGES
DURING YEAR 1011.
Easter Will Ilo On April 10 And
Many of tho Church Festivals
Will Ho Later Than Usual.
There will be marked changes
during 1911 in the dates of most of
tho movable holidays and feasts,
the church events, etc., which depend
on the position of the moon at a
given time. This will be because
the dates for the full moon this
year come the first half of each
month, which Is Just contrary to
1910, tho full moon dates falling on
the last half of the month.
The year 1011 is known as a
bissextile year, that is, it contains
but 365 days, being the third after
leap year, which contains 3GG days.'
Nineteen hundred and twelve will
be a leap year.
The year will contain 53 Sundays,
the other days of the week being
represented but 52 times during the
cycle. January, April, July, Octo
ber and December each contain five
Easter of 1911 is late, April 16
being the date. This is duo to the
fact that the preceding full moon
Is on the 13th which Is the first full
moon following March 21st. Many
of the other church festivals come
correspondingly late In the season.
To those who have made a study
of the calendar for 1911 it has be
come apparent that there is some
doubt as to tho exact date for cele
brating Thanksgiving. It has al
ways been popular notion that the
last Thursday in November was the
day that was Invariably selected for
a general day of thanks from the At
lantic to the Pacific, but it seems
that this rule may be changed this
The last Thursday in November
of 19.. is likewise the last day of
tho month, and the compilers of a
number of almanacs, claiming that
the last day of the month Is too late
for Thanksgiving day havo selected
the next to the last 'J hursday, which
falls on the 23 rd. They say that
this date is nearer tho time that the
celebration is generally held each
However, others still stick to the
hard and fast rule and fix the 'cele
bration for November 30. The more
conservative almanac makers, how
ever, realizing that thore is some
room for doubt, do not fix the time,
but say that it will be held either on
the last or next to tho last Thursday
according as the President of the
United States may direct.

CIRCUIT RIDER'S ESTATE
INVENTORIED 1JY HIS WIFE.
Corra Harris Says Dead Husband
Had $225 In Purse, $110 in
tank, 100 Hooks and $85
Nashville, Tenn., Jan. ' 7. Mrs.
Corra Harris, author of The Circuit
Rider's Wife, has filed with W. F.
Hunt, clerk of the county court, au
inventory of her late husband's es
tate that is probably unique in court
records. Her husband, the Rev.
Lundy H. Harris, who was common
ly supposed to be the real Circuit
Rider of the story, killed himself by
taking morphine at Pine Lodge, near
Cartersvillo, Ga., on September 18.
The county court clerk asked for
an inventory of his estnte, and Mrs.
Harris has written a letter stating
that the major part of It was In
vested in heavenly securities, the
value of which have been variously
declared in this world and highly
taxed by the various churches, but
never realized. Sho writes of Mr.
"I havo your card stating that if I
do not furnish an inventory of the
estate of Lundy H. Harris, of which
I was appointed administratrix,
within ten days from the receipt of
this notice you will proceed as the
"I did not know that it was my
duty to furnish such an Inventory,
and now that you demand it I do
not know how to do It. If the one
I send you is not In proper form to
be recorded on your books, I inclose
postage and request you to let me
know -wherein I have failed. It is
not with tho intention of showing
an egregious sentimentality that I
say I find it impossible to give you
a complete and satisfactory inven
tory of tho estate of Lundy H. Har
ris. Tho part that I give is so small
that It Is insignificant and mislead
ing. At the time of his death he had
$235 in his nurse. $11G in the Union
Bank and Trust Company, of this
city (Nashvlllo), about four hundred
books and tho coffin in which he was
buried, which cost about $85,
"The major part of his estate was
invested in heavenly securities, the
values of which have been variously
declared in this world, nt,-l highly
taxed by the various churches, but
nover realized. Ho Invested every
year not less (usually more) than
$1,200 in charity, so secretly, so
Inoffensively and so honestly that he
was never suspected of being a phil
anthropist, and nover praised for his
generosity. He pensioned an old
outcast woman in Barron county arid
an old soldier In Nashville. Ho sent
two little negro boys to school and
supported fo,r threo years a family
of flvo who could not support them
selves. "He contributed anonymously to
every charity In Nashville; every old
maid Interested in a benevolent ob
ject received his aid; every child he
knew exacted and received penny
tolls from his tenderness. Ho sup
ported the heart of every man who
confided In him with encouragement
and affection. Ho literally did for
give his enemies, and suffered mar
tyrdom on September 18, 1910, af
tor enduring three years of persecu
tion without complaint. He was
ever recognized as one of the largest
bondholders in heaven.
"You can see how large his es
tate was and how difficult It would
be to compute Its value so as to fur
nish you the Inventory you require
for record on your books. I have
given you faithfully such items as
have come within my knowledge.
GRADING THE SUNDAY SCHOOL.
If we are to do our best for the
Sunday schools in which we are
working we must make a serious
effort to bring biblical instruction to
tho level, pedagoglcally speaking, of
the day school. The three things
which will do more to do this than
all others are graded schools, grad
ed lessons, and trained teachers.
Leaving the latter two to future
discussions we will concern our
selves in this article with grading
By grading we mean the group
ing together of pupils for the pur
pose of instruction and the adapta
tion to classes thus formed of sub
ject matter and method of teaching,
Every school has some system of
grading. No school puts four-year
old children into classes with white
haired grandfathers but this Is about
the only general statement that can
be made in regard to the grading of
some of our schools. Scarcely any
thing in the whole work of tho Sun
day school is in greater chao3 than
this matter of grading. In many
schools classes are formed because
of friendship between teacher and
scholar or scholar and teacher rath
er than because of advancement.
Anyone who will stop to consider
cannot but realize the Importance of
this phase of Sunday school work
The grading in pubjic schools Is
considered necessary. A teacher
would think It impossible to teach
children who have been in school
one year in the same class with
those who havo attended four years.
Yet in the Sunday schools where the
aim is spiritual and where we are
teaching the greatest of Books, we
often attempt this very thing.
Thero are reasons for this for it
13 because of lack of authority, tran
sient membership, having but one
room in which to meet, and inade
quate facilities, it is difficult to
properly classify Sunday school nu
plls. Yet a Sunday school may be
graded to a certain extent and if
done the work will bo much more
We havo taken up In our last four
papers the first four grades of a
well organized Sunday school.

Beginners' Department, 3 to 6 years;
Primary Department, 6 to 9 years;
Junior Department, 9 to 12 years,
Following these there should be In
termediate Department, 13 to 16
years; Young People's Department,
16 to 18 years; Adult Department,
all over IS years of age.
While the children are supposed
to be classified chiefly according to
their ages yet thero aro exceptional
cases where pupils are advanced be
yond their years. Such pupils
should be placed In classes with

Examinations on Supplemental
work are often used as a condition
of promotion. These should not be
rigid and absolute. Those who have
satisfactorily completed the supple
mental work may be promoted with
honor but thoso who have not mas
tered the work should not be held
back on that account.
Each department should havo Its
own superintendent with as many
teachers as aro necessary. In
small schools one person may serve
as teacher and superintendent but
where thore are , many classes it is
best to have one person In charge of
Tho teachers in each department
must bo adapted to the work of that
department. Many teachers who
would not be at all suited for teach
ing intermediate or adult scholars
can accomplish wonders with schol
ars In the Beginners' or Primary de
partment. The reverse of this is al
so true so great care should bo tak
en that each teacher is where she
can do her best work.
There should bo regular promo
tions when all scholars except adults
aro advanced to tho next higher
grade. The promotions should be
made ono of the prominent features
of tho school. Appropriate exercises
may be conducted on Children's day.
At this time certificates of promotion
may bo given to those who have com
pleted tho supplemental work. These
certificates are made in a variety of
forms ana aro beautiful and inex

Between your soul and mine.
For all of good that I have found

Hath royally informed and crowned

I scan the whole broad earth around

Bears friendship without end r

Nor cruel loss, nor scoff, nor pride.
Nor beggary, nor dungeon bars,
Can move you from my side.
As patient under injury
As any Christian saint of old.
As gentle as a Iamb with me,
But with your brothers bold.
More playful than a frolic boy,
More watchful than a sentinel.
By day and night your constant joy
To guard and please me well.
I clasp your head upon my breast,

Ah, Blanco, Did I worship God

Or follow where My Master trod
With your humility.
Did I sit fondly at His feet,
as you, dear Blanco, sit at mine,
And watch Him with a love as
.My life would grow divine.

When G. W. Pell states that he
has a remedy that only costs 50e
and is guaranteed to cure any man
or woman who suffers from food
fermentation, or money back, what
aro the poor stomach sufferers jn
Ilonesdale and vicinity going to do
Food fermentation causes belch
ing, sour stomach, gas eructation,
heartburn and that lump of lead
feeling as you probably know.
Tho name of this most remark
able stomach prescription is MI-O-NA.
Most people call them MI-O-NA
stomach tablets because they
know that there is no remedy so
good for indigestion or stomach dis
orders. Here is one opinion:
"I havo been troubled with indi
gestion for more than a year. I
bought ono box of MI-O-NA and it
cured me. Now I would not be
without a box in the house for $5.
It saves a lot of doctor bills when
you can bo cured for 50 cents.
Arthur Sederquest, 6 Nichols St.,
MI-O-NA stomach tablets cost 50
cents a box at G. W. Poll's and
druggists everywhere and money
hack if they don't cure.
