margin of 20 to 18. A large num

nett Beroce the .caton County Bible
i etc-1 ia 1697.
Since Acorney-Cetioral Blackburn ren
dered his opinion upon the matter of
reading the Bible in the public schools,
much has been said pro and con in the
press of the etate. The following ex
tracts from an addreES delivered
by' Judge John Burnett in 1897, be
fore the Benton County Bible Society,
while not bearing directly Qn the ques
tion, show the awful results. that follow
disparagement of the Bible, and reject
ment of Christianity:
A little more than a century ago the
French people banished the Bible and
ignored Christianity and then came the
French Revolution, and what a spectacle
was then presented to the world, "A
country without a God." The revolu
tionists determined by decree to abolish
Christianity. The throne was gone;
the nobility had fled, or was hiding, or
in prison waiting death, but a cowering
farm of religion remained. The impa
tient Atheists and Jacobins clamored
for the desiruction of all churches, the
abolition of the Sabbath, the banishment
of the Bible, and the total extirpation
of Christianity; just as socialists of the
radical schools clamor for it today in
our land. What the anarchists cry for,
what the socialists of France and Ger
many and America cry for, was fully
realized in blood- stained France in 1793.
Forever let the American people hold up
before them the awful picture of warn
ing and advice to be lound in the
abolishing of religion in . France, con
temporaneous with the horrible rule of
the guillotine. The reign of terror in
France filled the whole world with hor
hor. A century has only had the effect
to deepen and intensify the hatred and
execration of mankind as the awful
record is read. It presents the most tre
mendous period ot butchery under pre
tended legal forms that history can re
veal, lis' solemn lessons read in the
light of facts and truth, should impress
upon humanity how weak and self de
ceiving is man, when left to his own de
vices, how certain the punitive; results of
crime and sin, and that the only safety
for a people is in obedience to those
laws of mercy, justice, temperance,
purity and truth, which flow forth from
Sinai, and Calvary, to bestow liberty
under law and the peace and prosperity
and happiness of righteousness. "Bless
ed is the nation," says the Bible, "whose
God is the Lord."
America has made a day of "Thanks
giving to God" one of her permanent in
stitutions, and this leaven is proving
the power that is working out of her life
all dangerous elements. Oar people are
being unified in their interest and ex
alted in their conceptions of the rights ot
others, through the Gospel. There is
small danger of extravagance in prais
ing the Bible as every one will allow who
appreciates what the Bible contains,
surveys"the influence of the book
in the past and knows its ludis-
pensible services in awakening and
supporting the life of religion ia the
soul of men. The Bible not only in
terprets God in his holiness and un fathomable
love and pity to man ; it is
the interpreter of man to himself. .
Coleridge tells us that, having striven
to cast aside all prejudice, he perused the
books of the Old and New Testaments,
each book as a whole and also as an
integral part," "And need I say," he
testifies, "that I have met everywhere
more or leas copious sources Of trnth and
power, and purifying impulses ; that I
have found words for my inmost
thoughts, songs for my joy, utterances
for my shame and feebleness, In short,
whatever fiads me bears witness for
itself that it has come from a Holy
Spirit, even from the same Spirit which
of old entered into the prophets.'' This
is not the expression of one mind alone,
but from many kindreds and tongues age
Sir William Joaes, one of the most
learned men that ever lived, said: " "I
have regularly and attentively read the
Holy Scriptures, and am of the opinion
that this book, independent of its divine
origin, contains more true sublimity,
more exquisite beauty and finer strains,
both of poetry and eloquence, than can
be found collected from all the books
that were ever written, in any age or
nation. The antiquity ef the book no
man doubts, and the most unstrained
application of its predictions to events,
long prior to their fulfilment, are no
mean evidences that this book is Divine
and consequently inspired." ' ..-
The Bible is the reyealed law of God,
and upon the law of - Nature and upon
the law of revelation depends all human
laws: and the divine revealed law as
found only in the Holy Scriptures is a
part of the original law ef Nature. This
is the language of "one of the most emi
nent law writers the world has ever pro

scoffings of each eminent infidels as Ii.
G. Ingersoll, without the Bible there

It was the Pole Star of the Pilgrim fath
ers, It was the guide to the framers of the
declaration of independence. It was
the reliance and mainstay of the Father
of-his Country in the great struggle for
independence. It is the corner stone of
the constitution of the United St ates,
and of the constitution of each state in
this American Union. "Without it our
courts of justice would be a mockery
and the administration of justice and of
an oath a farce. That Christianity has
been an important factor in the develop
ment of American life, no one can deny.
It has done for America,, and that in a
prominent degree, what it has done for
every other nation into which it has been
introduced. America needs Christianity
just in proportion to her exaltation of

In 1896 Attorney W. E. Yates,
of this city, was elected prosecuting
attorney of this district, and in pay
ment for his services in this oapao
ity was obliged to accept county
warrants. In this manner he ac
quired some warrants on Curry
ceunty. At intervals since he went
out of office Attorney Yates has
written down there for information
regarding the payment of those
warrants, but as a general thing
could get bo light on the subject.
A few days ago he received a pos
tal card from the treasurer of Cur
ry county answering a recent letter
of his as to how far back the county
wits in the redemption of her paper.
Treasurer Winsor wrote, showing
that Curry county is now getting to
the front rapidly, and is redeeming
her warrants to the 10th day of
January, 1891. This shows the
county to be just ten years behind.
At this rate, Mr. Yates will have to
hold his warrants about five years
yet before they are redeemed. This
he laughingly declared he would do.
