Timothy's trnlnlnt would he the proper training for every child. In Ihe measure that such tralnlns be !v-en there would be n more nbundant supply of Christian workers. I. Timothy'a Parentage (Acts 10:1). His father was a Greek and his mother a hpllevlnj; Jewess. On his mother's sMe at least, he had a godly ancestry. I'sually the Influence of the mother makes the son. A plmi mother nnd a pious grandmother were back of Timothy. II. Timothy'a Training (II Tim. 1:5; 3:14.1.-.). A wine nr.d faithful mother and grar.dmothpr carefully nurtured him In God's Word. Throiii;!! this training, he knew the Scriptures from bis childhood. The faith which came to hlra from his grandmother through his mother did not come through the laws of heredity, but through careful training and teaching. Grace Is not received by the laws of heredity. The factors Involved In his training were n godly ancestry, a home where God was feared, nnd a dlllgpnt study of the Scriptures. III. Timothy's Call (Acts 10:13). While on his second missionary Journey in company with Silas. Paul found Timothy at I.ystra near Derbe. Perhaps he had been ' converted on Paul's first missionary Journey, but, hearing a favorable report of him by the brethren, Paul circumcised him so as not to offend the Jews because his father was Greek. This was not contrary to the decision of the Jerusalem council. It was a case where conciliation could be made without compromise of truth. IV. Tlmot'-.y't Character. 1. Of a retiring disposition (II Tim. :G). lie had received a gift from Ood at the hands of the apostles, but It reeded to he stirred up; that Is, fanned Into a flame. Such a temperament would mature In touch with a great personality like Paul. 2. Courageous (II Tirn. 2:1-8). Having been stirred up, he was freed from the spirit of fear and deliberately Identified himself with Paul In his suffering and trials. 3. Faithful. He continued In the difficult field of Kphesus during many years. He was the only man of the needed fidelity to minister to the Phil-Ipplans (Phil. 2:20). The secret of his faithfulness In such a position was his fidelity to the Word of God. V. Timothy's Ministry. 1. As fellow missionary with Paul (Phil. 2:22). 2. As pastor of the church at Kphesus. Here he labored for many years, tactfully meeting the difficulties of that great church. The Christian minister must believe In the Scriptures as God's Word and be able to rightly divide them so as to meet the need of those who hear him. VI. Paul's Farewell Message to Timothy (11 Tim. 1:1-11). 1. Personal relationship (vv. 1, 2). Timothy was Paul's spiritual son, therefore a peculiar love went out to him. This strong .'ffrrMon was a vital factor in Influencing Timothy's life. 2. Paul's deep Interest in Tlmothv (vv. 3 5). n. Prayer for him. While a prisoner In a lonely dungeon, lie thinks of Timothy and prays for hltu. b. Longed to see til iu.

That many times wnen he had to entertain the country blue with the news he would ratner nave gone swimming or fishing like any oilier kid would naturally want to do. Mr. Hail remembers tne first, newspaper established in independence county. It was the old Independence County balance, edited by Shelby Kennard, a wel known early educator, and Urben E. tort. When this paper began publication it was audea to the list tnat came into his nome. It was strong lor k Uimore anu tue Ino Notmng rany.

"1 had my lust newspaper experience on tne old commercial, in iuem-iiis, 'lenn., m ISob. There were six papers puoinsiiea there at that time, live Democratic and one Republican. The Democratic papers as I remember them were the Commercial, the Argus, Appeal, Avalanche and Bulletin. I am not sure but I think the Republican paper wa3 the Tost. Anyway, it received all the Federal advertising, and the rest of them were in a sad plight New Low Fares im g Effect Mow to All parts of the U. . . SPRINGFIELD 2-30 () KANSAS CITY - 605 ST.

That wrs the year of the yellow fever scourge In Memphis and it nearly depopulated that city. "One of the Freedman's Bureaus were located there and all the freed negroes were invited t' ccmc and bt fed. There were thousands f them centered there and the filth was ter-rille. All the whites who had the means to leave, left the city, and the population became about two-third. black and one-third white. "I wos rooming with a young fellow it porter from Camden, Aik., in the old Richmond Hotel. Our room had two cots in it and we rented it for loc a day. One night I came in late and my partner we.s lying on his cot asleep moaning. I thought he was dreaming. Shortly before daylight I was awakened by a- lighted candle and taking in the room. The poor fellow hud the yellow fever and they came to take him to the pest houre where he died. "It was terrible in Memphis in those days. Negroes died by the scores. They were buried in plain unpainted and undraped pine coffins ,and it was nc uncommon sight to see dray wagons loaded as high as those coffins could be stacked carrying their gruesome loads to the potters field in the cemetery, with crowds of weeping and moaning relatives trudging along behind. "It was too much for me, and a few days after my room-mate died I caught a steamboat and came back to Arkansas. "At the end of the war our corn-man surrendered at Jacksonport in Jackson county and I went back to Smilhville. Our splendid home at that place and the rest of the town had been practically all wiped out by fire and desolation was on every side. I had no resources and had two sitsers and a younger brother to look after. Green Smith, a farmer who owned an isolated farm in the hills near Smithville, had been overlooked in the general destruction and had made a small crop of corn that year. A lot of his land had grown up in briers and sprouts and I went over and asked him for a job of clearing. He gave it to me and paid me in corn. I carried this corn to a small grist mill and had it ground and the bread from this coin was the best I have eaten before u tince "A year later I went to Batesville and worked as a farm hand. Then I got a job working for Will Maxfield, who owned a small store located where the Mennard store is now located, across the street from the First National Bank. I saved my wages and a short time after joined in a mercantile venture with Thomas Mom-mack, in a small frame building lo cated where the lsjitzhugh building now stands. We made money from the start and took our hard earned profits and invested in cotton which cost us from 18c to 21c per pound. We sold it for 12Vsc which cleaned me out, and I sold my part of the stock to Wom-mack and got a job clerking for Theodore Maxfield. "North Arkansas has given the state many of its prominent men and 1 have seen them all pass down the long corridor of life and out of the door. "Governor Elisha Baxter was one of my close friends and I bestow upon him the title of 'Moses of Arkansas.' After the war the Conferedate soldiers were disfranchised. He was elected governor of Arkansas as Republican, but he was our friend. In 1874 he issued a proclamation enfranchising all males over 21 who had not been convicted of a felony. This started the Brooks-Baxter War, which was finally ended by President Grant. Governor Baxter's first home was two miles cast of Batesville, just across the street from my home. I was with him the night he died. He had been sickk for several weeks and became worse. I went over to see him and saw that he was a very sick man. He had been in a stupor for hours Suddenly he opened his eyes and look ed around. I know he was looking for his wife who had passed on some time before. Then he dropped back anu drew his last breath. 1 closed his eyes. "Col. J. A. Schanabel was another noted character in this section of Arkansas. He was born in Germany and was a leader in a revolt against the uerman government, which failed. He escaped in a vessal bound for Norfolk, v a., and disbarked at that place. This was early in the fifties. He had had splendid military training and caught the eye of Governor Wise of Vir ginia, who bestowed the title of Cap tain upon him and put him to work training the state milita. When John Brown captured Harpers Ferry, Capt. Schanabel was sent with the troops to re-capture the place, which they did. Brown was tried and condemned to be hung. It is said that CpU Schanabel was the man who bad charge of the gruesome affair and placed to rope around John Brown's neck. He was a splendid engineer and an expert in stone construction and drifted from Virginia into Missouri, where he was made a Colonel in Oonfe'ioraf. nrinun:, whvn the CMl War I roke out. His regiment crre to Arkansas and surrendered at Jackson port at the clcse tf the war. He w high in the councils of the old Ku Klux Klun. and mad" his h"me at Batesville after the war, taking up the work of a contractor. He built the old court houc at Jacksonport, which still stands; the stone arch bridge across Saludo Creek, and many other strue turea which will stand for years as monuments to his memory. "I was also a friend of Governor Garland, and at the time I wan elected to the legislature. I was around his law office in Little Rock a great deal. He was a brilliant lrwyer and states man, but had his eccentricities. Once x year he would give a big o'possum Jinner to his friendf, at his home, IW.-.iny Hail, in South Arkansas. He never used anything but a quill pen k write with and had dozens of these antiquated affairs lying on his desk in his office. He refused to wear a belt and always wore home knit, wool balluses.' Besides being Governor and U. S. Senator, he was Attorney General under Cleveland. After Cleveland went out he practised law in Washington. He fell dead in his office. E. u Givens, editor of the Batesville Guard, was a clerk in the U. S. Senate at that time, and picked Garland up when he fell. I had a friendly letter from him a short time before he died. "I was well asquainted with General Albert Pike, Arkansas' greatest poet and Mason. He was also a great oldier, heading a brigade of Indians during the Civil War. While I was ia Augustus Garland's office in Little Rock, he would come in frequently for an hours visit. He was a cavalier in appearance, having beautiful long hair, which reached below his shoulders and which he kept carefully cursed. His was one of the greatest brains in America. . "I knew Thos. S. Drew when I was a boy in Smithville. He was a frequent visitor at our home and I enjoyed his company, as did my father. He was the crly governor of the state who could not make a living out of his office, and resigned for that reason. He always dressed in brown jeans. Not a brilliant man, but a safe one. "Governor Wm. A. Miller, was born in Independence county, two miles east of Batesville. The old Miller homestead is now in a state of dilapidation. He was educated at the Sauls-bury Institute in Batesville, one of the first seats of learning in the state, and a Methodist institution. He was a fine man, a profound lawyer and a good governor. The first public office ne held was clerk of Independence county. Later he was elected State Auditor, and served in that capacity tor about 20 years. He served as gov. ernor for four years and made a good one. W hile he knew law he was no orator and hated to make a speech. "Senator James Berry was a close friend of mine, and was ore of Arkansas' greatest statesmen. He lost his leg in the Civil War in the battle of Corinth, Miss. My brother. Dr. Thoe. B. Hail, was also wounded in this bat. tie and the two fell within a short distance of each other. I became well acquainted with him in the legislature in 1872, and for many years he was a visitor at our house every time he visited Batesville. "U. M. Rose, one of the most btiV liant lawyers in Arkansas started his professional life in Batesville. He lived on the lot now occupied by a filling station just across the street from where the Crouch furniture store is now lacted. His law office was located in his yard. He hated politics and would never consent to run for public office. He did accept an appointment as delegate to the Geneva Court from President Theo. Roosevelt, and represented his government at that conference. "Another one of our celebrities was Judge William Byers, who came to Batesville from Ohio, before the Civil war. He was a very wealthy man for those days and when the war broke out he was loyal to the Confederacy, supporting it with all the wealth he nad. Elected to the United States Senate during re-construction days, he was denied his seat. He was a brilliant lawyer and served several times as circuit judge of the district. "Judge Richard H. Powell was another noted Batesville citizen who served his state well. He lived in the old Governor Baxter home, two miles west of Batesville, after the latter moved to town. After serving several terms as circuit judge of our district, ne was elected associate justice of the supreme court, a position which he filled creditably." Commenting on the many changes since he was a boy, Judge Hail said: 'When I was a boy in Smithville, I nave carried live coals as far as tw miles from a neighbors houes to start a fire with. Now one turns on switch and starts the kitchen fire. Every thing was bard to do ia tboc days compared with tietw days. Vet, w knew our responsibilities and accepted them. With everything cad easy to do, with modern aavfealcaft. why don't men accept their reejwaslb-iltiva today?"
