A. W. D ENTON,
It is very rare that a challenge
3s hurled into the teeth of a per-
?son who keeps his moutt shut.
Credible roads bring highly
cultivated farms and cultured
homes. These are proving to be
the results of the construction of
the fine macadam boulevards in
The finest chicken ranch in
Texas in H mile of Cumby, very
cheap. See Alcorn & Black
It has always been a har’d mat-
ter for us to reconcile the justice
of the docirine of an eternal hell
as taught by God’s book. But
there are some crimes when we
are brought face to face with
them, when we are called upon to
contemplate their enormity and
see how "far reaching they are—
its then we don’t wonder why
God made an etar:.ai hell. There
are - mie crimes and one in par-
•t; j ticular we are going to describe,
j which we thiols deserves eternal
co rdemnation and nothing short
of it will pay the penalty. Just
over there at the turn of the lane
in a grove of trees nestLd a love-
ly cottage home. In the sweat
of an honest man’s brow, this
home had been builded; it was
the fruit of honest toil and wed-
lock’s holy love. The husband
was one of nature’s cheiftains
and the wife was a queen among
women. Upon this nome altar
God laid one of his brightest
jewels; a lovely daughther. She
was reared lovingly, tenderly
and intellectually. Around her
the parental vine had entwined
itself like a trellis honeysuckle.
She was the idol of that happy
home. One day there crawled
into the paradise a serpent in
human form, with his courtly^
manner and flattering tongue he
won the good graces of the fath-
er and mother (the rest was easy)
he paid his court at the.^hrine of
innocent womanhood, like the
serpent that he was he charmed
her and with his seductive in-
fluences he won the costliest
thing fashioned by hands above;
a woman’s wonderful love and a
woman’s trust. Like a slimy rep-
tile he entwined himself around
the tender plant and with his
poisonous venom he stung the
flower of virtue and it withered
and died. Of nn earthly paradise
he made a hell of shame and dis-
honor. Out yonder on the hill-
side sleep the heart-broken pa-
rents, down at the turn of the
lane stands a deserted cottage.
In a faraway city this once lovely
arming, tender hearted daugh-
ter is an outcast and dwells in the
slums of that wicked city, and so
far as earthly habitation was con-
cerned the doors of mercy were
forever closed against her. The
Dastard who wrecked this happy
home and robbed a young life of
its most precious jewel, v irtue,
went his way. He was a man of
honor, the doors of fashionable
society stood ajar for his entrance.
Political honors were showered
upon him, he sat upon the bench
and was honored for his learning
and the world said of him, that
lie wore the ermine of his office
with dignity and honor—but it
was a falsehood, he had no honor.
“The mills of God grindj slow.”
The vengeance of God is sure.
In his court a prostitute was con-
victed of the murder of her para-
mour, the jury’s verdict was a
life sentence. Sentence wa± to
be passed, the courtroom was
crowded to suffocation, the Judge
with his dignified air of learning
rose and said: Woman, have you
anytliining to say or any reason to
give why this Sentence should
not be passed upon you? TlieU
the prisoner, like a wounded ti-
gress, sprang to her feet and
said;-r“ Yes your honor, 1 have
a good reason why this sentence
should not be passed—.” In the
ring of her voice and the flash of
her eye the Judge recognized the
woman whose life lie had wrecked
and^ruined—but ere the sentence
could be pronounced a dagger
pierced her heart and she lay a
corpse in a court of justice. Who
murdered this woman? Reader,
do you wonder why Divine Jus-
tice made a place for eternal pun-
