WHOLE FAMILY IN JAIL HAVE HADE 50,000 GALLONS 07 MOONSHINE WHISKY. Federal Officials Are Not Strangers To Harrison Gibson and His Sons. i Harrison Gibson and his three sons, Jack. Brownlow and Hanney, probably four of the most notorious moonshiners In Kentucky, are serving sentences in the county jail. Confined in the same se'-tlon of cells are Joe Stamper and "William Madden, sons-in-law of Gib- eon. Fleming; Gibson, a fourth son, was recently released from the Jail after serving a sentence for violating the Internal revenue laws, and Henry . Gibson, another member of the notori ous family, was arrested not long ago In Jackson county for moonshining. ut was released. Harrison Gibson estimates that he . and his five sons have made no less . than 60,000 gallons of whisky, on which not a cent of revenue was ever paid to the Government. He further computes .that he and his family have realized between $40,000 and $50,009 from the distillation of the whisky. The seat of operations of the Gibson Tarally Is In Jackson and Clay counties. Harrison Gibson says he has been ar rested so many times for moonshining that he could not say exactly how many times he has been tried before the Fed -ral Commissioners and in the United 'States Court. Jack, Brownlow and .Hanney Gibson have served about six 'terms each, while "Flinney" and Henry tiare escaped without being arrested enore than two or three? tiroes. Joe Stamper and William Madden. ,who married two of Gibson's daughters. are both expert moonshiners and are regarded . as dangerous men. . Their .wives are also skilled In the art of mak lng "doubiln" and disposing of the whisky and help to baffle the Federal authorities. When seen in his -cell at the Jail yesterday afternoon, Harrison Gibson said: "Taas, I think I am the real king of the Kentucky 'shiners. I am nigh on to sixty years old and I have been making the stuff ever since I was a boy thirteen years old. I have made enough of it to float that battleship that blowed up. I hev had lots of scraps with the mar shals, but I kin say one thing, I hev got my first time to shoot one of 'em. hev shot at 'em. though, but some way tother the bullets never hit right ' aow, i crougm tnem ooys up." con tinued the old man.

Ark of the Covenant Dedicated At the Temple Adas Jes-hurem. THE XEV. DX. WALTZ'S SERMON. At the Unitarian church yesterday morning the Rev. Dr. J. H. Heywood. who came to Louisville fifty years ago a young minister fresh from the Divinity school at Cambridge, delivered a semi-centennial sermon on the "Message of the Nineteenth Century." He recited Psalm 23. "The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want;" also' King David's words, "Who shall abide In the court of the Lord?" Then he turned to - the twelfth chanter of St. Mark's Gospel, twenty-eighth verse. where one of the scribes asked Jesus "Which Is the first commandment of all?" Jesus answered him "The first of all the commandments is. Hear O Israel, the Lord our God Is one Lord; and thou Shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength." After a pause Dr. Heywood read the words of the apostle John, "God is love, and he that dwelleth In love dwelleth in God and God In him, and the teachings of our great Spiritual leader, 'Come unto i all ye that lahor and r hpnvr laden, and I will give you rest.' " After the announcements for the week he took for a text "For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself. For whether he live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die. we die unto the Lord: whether we live. therefore, or die, we are the Lord's." Romans xiv.. 7-8. He said In part: "The subject is th messaere of the Nineteenth century. God aave us the great lesson of the first century, and it finds fullest obedience in the Nine teenth the uplifting and education of the human race. History la a great book of God, interpreting national and Individual life. Bach century is the re sult of all previous ones all are connected one with the other, each with all. une or the greatest events of the Nineteenth century was the World's Fair at Chicago, and its greatest feature was the Parliament of Religions. This century is greatest from the educational standpoint. e may not have greater scholars than preceding centuries, but almost any one can become a great scholar In the Nineteenth century. What a wonderful work Is the kindergarten in transforming the little ones. This supplements our generous public school system. As I thmk of it there comes to mind my dear friend Georges: Tlngley. For years the faithful Super intendent, to-day he sits blinded In his home, but within he has the clear vision. May the blessings of God come upon him and those connected with our schools. . . "How great the privileges of this cen tury! It seems that the Lord of the universe has raised the curtain of His laboratory and let us look in. Our century has been marked with wonderful events. The work of women has been marvelous lh this century. The Red Cross movement: Florence Nightingale, the angel of the Crimea; the Federation of Women's Clubs, the University extension, the social settlements these in all directions are drawing nigh the beatific vision. "Think of our cruel war thlrty-flve years ago. The spirit of heroism on both sides, the wonderful picture of Orant and Lee settling the struggle with a spirit of fraternity. The war thus made us a freer people. "In the past few weeks what pleas ing sight to see our Congress, without regard to party, stand united by our noble President, the worthy successor of Washington and Lincoln. I hope that war will not come, yet it seems In evitable. If It breaks out men of both sides will fall for the nation's rights. God bless the President and all In au thority. God bless noble Gen. Fitzhugh Lee, so calm, so firm, so wise at his perilous poet in Havana." In Closing Mr. Heywood referred to his coming to Louisville fifty-eight years ago to succeed Dr. James Freeman Clarke; how the church and community had been kind to him through all the years, mentioning among his friends the late Dr. James Craik. who, after a slight misunderstanding, said to him: "It won't do for you and I to relax our friendship; we are so far apart we can't quarrel." PALM SUNDAY CELEBRATION. Elaborate Services At the First English Lutheran Church. Palm Sunday was celebrated at the First English Lutheran church yesterday by services of unusual beauty and impreaslveness. The large congregation filled all available space in both the audience room and Sabbath-school apartments. ' The floral decorations were elaborate, consisting"' almost entirely of palms and ferns. In the center o'f the building was a great pyramid of palms, from the center of which rose a large white cross twined with ferns. . The excellent musical programme prepared by the choir of the church was artistically rendered.. At the close of Dr. Waltz's address the rite of confir mation was administered to a large class of young peoplj. After assuming the vows of Christian faith, they knelt about the altar and sang "Just As I Am, Without One Plea." This was fol lowed by the prayer of consecration by the pastor. . Before rising from prayer all united with the class In singing "bearer. My uod, to Thee." The evening service, in sermon and song, was an Impressive Palm Sunday celebration. Dr. Walta took as his text Psalm verse 12: "The righteous shall nourish like the palm tree. "When Jesus had finished His minis try of teaching, helping and healing, he said, "he came to Jerusalem for the Anal act of sacrifice. He was hailed with rejoicing, and a welcome was accorded him such as only a conqueror Is given Palm Sunday Is the celebration of that wonderful' scene. When, in the revelation of the coming flory, John saw the saints come marching home to Jerusalem they came as their Lord had come, with rejoicing, bearing palms in their hands, the emblem of victory. "When God Is picturing the kind, of Christians wno-snau form part of that triumphal throng who shall come to the eternal city of God. as victors and as the Master came. He says: 'They shall flour, ish like the palm tree. Whenever God railed his people by name it was a name that signified life, activity, growth, usefulness. They are to be trees of the Lord, the light of the world, workers with God. sons and daughters of the Almighty. "Let young Christians begin their Christian life with the understanding that to be a Christian Is" more than a mere confession and profession. It is a life of activity and usefulness. The life of Christ Is to be reproduced in his followers. Confirmation means consecration. A tree without life will bear no fruit and Is dead. A Christian without the life of Christ throbbing In his heart la lifeless so far as spiritual power and Joy are concerned. "Ths Calm tree doe set udgsair spring Into full growth. It develops gradually, but steadily and surely. So the Christian grows. He begins with the life of Christ in the heart. With that vital germ he grows stronger on snd on until st length in eternity he will attain the stature of manhood In Christ Jesus. The palm tree does not depend on surface soil for support and food. Its roots reach deep down into mother earth and drink of hidden, never-falling streams. The righteous are like these trees. They reach down deep into the hidden eternal -springs of God. They have food and drink of which the wicked know not. "Be Christians or the palm-tree character and you shall flourish on the earth and by and by be transplanted Into the eternal paradise of God." BOOKS 07 THE LAW Placed In the Ark At the Temple Adas Jeshurem. At Temple Adas Jeshurem. comer of Chestnut and Floyd streets, the solemn ceremonies of dedicating the Ark of the Covenant and lighting the perpetual lamp, were gone through yesterday in the presence of a congregation which filled every pew and all the available standing place. The congregation la rigidly orthodox and the men sat with hats on throughout the exercises. Mr. A. Shcpinsky was the master of ceremonies, which began at :30 p. m. The Sixth- treet Temple choir sang: the Rev. S. fr Salinger led In prayer, and Dr. A. Moses delivered an historical discourse on "The Ark and the Israelite." 'This Ark." said he, "is a thing of beauty and a work of art. W hy spend money for this. A mere box would do to hold the books of law; yet that would be unseemly and uncommon. The books of law ought to have a box worthy of me contents. Continuing, Dr. Moses paid a high trib ute to Hebrew devotion to God's law and appealed for greater faithfulness. After a violin solo by Prcr. John F. Surma nn. Rev. Dr. Ignatius Mueller delivered a discourse In Hebrew and the choir chanted. Messrs. M. Cohen. N. Block, B. Schwarts. Sam Grabfelder, A. Sapinsky and L. Moses carried on their shoulders the books of law Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy and the Ten Commandments to the rear of the platform, where they were placed In proper position on the Ark of the Covenant, a shrine curtained with velvet in the rear of the altar stand. Over the altar iung the small per petual lamp, a reminder of the one In the tabernacle in the wilderness and later the light In Solomon's temple. Mr. Aaron Kohn carefully lighted the lamp. which is never to go out. Mr. Samuel Grabfelder made a happy congratulatory address.

A weak heart is the cause of many disorders-It retards the circulation of blood through the body, thus depriving the muscles and organs of the nutriment necessary to perform their functions. It impairs digestion, destroys appetite, deranges liver and kidneys, ' impoverishes the blood and weakens the nerves.

Z. Letter and His Son Obtain Large Loan To Carry On His Wheat Deals. Chicago Telegram to the New York Herald. L. Z. Lelter and Joseph Leiter. father and son, are evidently determined to carry through their big wheat deal, for they last week obtained a loan of 19,-000,000. The amount borrowed was away beyond any present necessities, but the wheat' bull decided it was better financiering to pay Interest on unused funds than to risk a demoralized money market at the very moment when borrowing might be necessary. . Mr. Leiter now has the funds in bank to pay for any possible wheat delivered during the next sixty days. As Important as the financial arrangement was the completion of plans to hurry the grain controlled by him abroad and Into consumption. Every bushel of .contract wheat now at Chicago will be on Its way to Europe with. In the next four weeks. Up to the middle of March the railroads were loading Leiter wheat out of only one ifystem-of elevators the Armour. The closing of additional shipping contracts with the east-bound roads for 3.000,000 bushels started loading at every elevator system in the city. One day last week cars were taking wheat simultaneously at the Armour. the Weare, the Counselman. the Na tional. thelentra! and the Keith ele vators. Thai ' means an all-rail ship ment of 2,000,000 bushels per week. Some day this week, unless the opening of navigation Is delayed beyond the ex pectation, the fleet of thirty vessels carrying 1.700.000 bushels or Letter wheat will start through the lakes to ward Buffalo. Mr. Leiter Is supposed to be turning one million bushels into money each week, and if it had not been for the unusual movement in this direction and the extraordinary activity of the elevator Interests in turning low grades Into contract, the cash position would have become by this time an easy one. for the bull leader. But for several weeks Armour and the lesser elevator Interests have been making about 8U0.000 bushels contract wheat for Leiter to pay. Leiter met tne dltll-culty by making the much-talked of compact with Armour. "I have taken caah wheat or Mr. Armour in various positions." Is the way Joseph Leiter puts It. "You can rely upon It." says Philip Armour, "that the wheat receipts at Chicago from this forward will be much smaller." It was an arrangement effected by the elder' Leiter. One very Important effect will be the Immediate delivery and prompt shipment of the wheat which was Intended for delivery to the bull leader next May. This grain can now be hurried abroad and sold ahead of the cheaper India and South American grain.- The Filson Club.
