Passing of i Bad Practice.
The "time business," it is about
as bad as drinking 1 likker' to the
man who keeps it up very long.
But what we started out to say is
that the bad practice of buying on
time supplies to make a crop with
is dwindling beautifully in this
good county. The time business
for farm supplies fell off about
seventy five per oent this year.
Sounds unreasonable, .but it. is
true. And the livestock business
fell eff about one hundred and
ten per cent, and that sounds
foolish, but it's this way : Farmers
have sold more horses and mules
for shipment out of the county
than have been brought into the
ooonty. As a consequence of
those conditions when the cotton
is sld this fall a larger percent
age of what the producers to do
with as they please thau has gone
into those same pDokets any one
year in the past 40 years.

The business men who are mem
bers of the Chicago Evangelistio
Association have just received a
pretty fair taste of what might
be expected by Protestantism if
Rome should succeed in her de
termination to make America Ro
The Association has been doing
earnest and highly gratifying work
far the betterment of humanity
ever since their organization, and
in pursuing their work raised a
tent at the corner of 81st and
Princeton streets, Chicago, abdut
two weeks ago.
The evangelist, R v. Robert G.
Moore, with a handful of Z9alons
Christian workers proceeded to
hold meetings, but from the start
ctiny met the worst kind of opposi
i m The neighborhood is large
y Roman Catholic, and when the
ws wts circulated that "th
Portestants are omiug." the un
lerhauded ageuts of popery inject
d the unwarranted cry that tht
meetings were biug backed up by
the The Menace and must be stop
ped by all nnans. Thus was bit
teruess engendered at the start.
The above statement and the
call to "do away with them," was
made qu the step of St, Mary's
Rjman Catholic Churoh on Sun
day morning, and it bore early
fruit. For four nights the meet
ing was stoned. Rook fell in ail
directions and ths tent was perfor
ated in several places, A stone
hurled at the minister struok Mrs.
Caroline Wilcox of 8041 Narmcl
Aye., fracturing her arm. The
caretaker was severely braised and
had to be taken away for medical
treatment.-Net less than ten per
sons were hart by the stones hurl
ed into the tent.
The polioe were called for but
failed to answer. After several
fruitless efforts for proteccion, a
oall was made by influential per
sons at the oity hall and officials
niguer up immeaiateiy toox a
part in it. Four uniformed po
licemen and three deteotives were
detailed at the tent aud 13 arrests
had been jnade previous to the
20th, and four more scheduled for

counts for the action obtained!
On being interviewed Rev.
Moore expressed satisfaction over
the outlook, laying he believed
the polioe had the matter well in
hind at this time. A guard of
seven policeman has been estab
Rev. Moore in speaking of the
erroneous report that The Menace
was baok of the movement, said
he wished to brand that statement
as a lie, dot because he was asham
ed of that paper bat that he Was
speaking uudr the auspices of the
Association and not connected
with any paper. He declared that
"we have met with the most out
rageous treatment and the worst
of it is that fathers and mothers
are urging their children to com
mit violence toward us." ,
Dr. Moore stated he had evi
dence that the people are saying,
"That is a Catholic neighborhood
and we want none of the Protes
tant gosoel." Thus the world is
given some idea of what the Unit
ed 'States would enjoy in the way
of religious liberty if-Rome ruled
the whole roost.
All the arrests made are of mem
bers of St. Mary s Roman Catho
lic Churoh. The trial on Friday
lesulted in nine being out on pro-'
bation. One of the criminals
failed to appear claiming typhoid
fever. A friend appeared for one
of the arrests, a man 85 years old,
offering to furnish an entirely new
tent if Rev. Moore would drop the
cases. He would not. Rome
should have to shoulder the re
suits of her teachings.

some of his experience in Ger

the magnet is placed very close to
