Neill preached to a large audience at the First Baptist church last night, using the first twenty verses of the fifth chapter of Mark as his text. “Would that I had the power to take you back to the shores of Gallilee, tonight,” he said, “so that you could better appreciate the force of this text. There was a man mad, possessed of demons innumerable. Then Christ came across the lake to minister to his case. There are two pictures that I see toady. One is a dark and sordid one; the other is a white and cheering picture. “The dark picture show* the man Possessed of demons so that he had abused his family, deserted them and had fled to the mountains where he raved with the fury of lunacy. W'hat wa* to blame? Sin was the cause, as it is the cause of all our troubles. “Sin got into his heart and caused him to despise his former loved ones and to cause a son, father, and husband, to be the most brutal so that his family feared him. Sin will separate almost any family. It has done and is doing that in Monroe today. Sin causes family abandonment, wife beating, and numberless offenses agaist the law and against decency. Sin makes a man, a woman, dangerous. In days gone by, lepers were forced to stay near the gates of a city and cry out their utter uncleanness. I would that today those who are moral lepers had to do the same thing. Moral lepers are worse than physical ones, they menace womanhood, virtue, and all that is good. “The maniac in the mountains was not happy. He was quite the reverse. He was miserable. Jesus came to him and cast out the demons. Then there came to pass the other side of the picture, the cheerful picture in the place of the dark and sordid one. Jesus sent that man back to his family full of kindness and compassion. The love of God had changed his heart. He wag no longer a menace to society. “Jesus made of this maniac a new creature. So he can and will do of you, my friend. If you confess your sins, Jesus will put a new song in your heart, will take the clouds of your life and will make it really worth while to live. “You husband, you son, you father, won’t you tonight let Jesus work that transformation in your heart that will prove an answer to the prayers of your mother, wife, family? That will crown your life with richness and love and will make you occupy the place in society that was intended to be yours.’* ---------o--------- dieted a record vote in tomorrow** j street. West Monroe, owned by Mrs. Democratic primary at which the voters will select candidates for state offices from justice of the peace to governor. Interest in the campaign centered largely in the contest for the nomination for governor between Governor Tom J. Teral, seeking renomina­ tion, and Judge John E. Martineau of the Pulaski county chancery court. The campaign between the candidates has been bitter and largely of a personal nature. Governor Teral charged in his speeches that Mr. Martineau drank to an excess and severely criticized his judicial action*, while Judge Martineu charged that the governor had abused his power, issued secret paroles to convicts and had accepted personal life insurance in payment for state fire insurance. * U.

Originating from an unknown source, the fire had gutted the entire structure before being discovered. no one being at home at the time it started. The volunteer fire department of the west side responded promptly but because the nearest water plug was three hundred yards sway it was some time before the firemen could bring a stream of water to play on the burning structure. Virtually all of the furniture and contents in the house were also destroyed. Fire Chief Roddy of the Monroe fire department aided the volunteer firemen of the west side in fighting the blaze. --------o--------Coal Company Barge Burns in Mobile Bay MOBILE. Ala.. Aug. 9.—(By A.

The National ; Wear Al6XRIinR Completing thirty-four years of railroad service, L. B. Ferguson, of 200 Pine street, has been retired with a pension by the Illinois Central railroad, successors to the V. S. A P. road. Mr. Ferguaon has been superintendent of motive power at the local jhops of the road for twenty-three years. His retirement is not due to old age but to the fact that physical disabilities are such as to occasion retirement. Seated in a comfortable seat on his porch on Pine street, Mr. Ferguson talked today to a News-Star representative of his long period of service. He started to work as apprentice in Meridian thirty-four yeafs ago. After a customary four-year apprenticeship, he entered the drafting office of the road, at that city. There he remained for seven years. Then he came to Monroe and was for thirteen years superintendent of motive power. Then came .the government control i of roads in the world war and Mr." Ferguson was for four years general manager of the A. A L. M., as well as ^seeing to his former work. The day that the roads were given back to their former control, Mr. Ferguson gave all attention to hia former poat at the shops of the V. S. A P., where he remained until August 1, last, when his retirement came, due, as stated, to a physical disability and not to his age.

Clemecneau tells President Coolidge that the war debt sentiments have crested divergencies of opinion which threaten a serious effect upon the future of the civilized world. A technician, he says, too often ia a man whose pleasure consists in isolating his own problems from that which he is occupied in coordinating. His reference here was to the technical experts who are working on the debts. “Everything in public affairs,’’ says M. Clemenceau, “contributes to form a whole and any one who thinks he can isolate himself in his own domain ia running the risk of finding himself overwhelmed later when it is too late to mend matters.” The former premier asserts that preparation« for solution of the debt questions between United States and England and France and the United Statse, have not brought about a good state of feeling and adds: “We are debtors, you are creditors. It seems this is regarded as purely a matter for the cashier’s department but are there no other considerations to be taken into account?” “We have thrown everything into the abyss—blood and money—as England and the United States did, on their gide, but it was France’s territory that w-as devastated scientifically. For three deadly yeaTs we awaited this declaration from America: ‘France is the frontier of liberty.’ Three years of blood and money oozing from every pore. “As Russia did, America has made a separate peace with Germany, without even the slightest suggestion of an adjustment with her comrades in j arms.

P.)—President Coolidge has let it be known that the negotiations for the funding of the French debt to She United States are closed so far as it concerns his administration. The' open letter of former Premier Clemenceau to President Coolidge, made public in Paria last night, contending that the French debt agreement is impossible of fulfillment, has reséltVd not only in this definition of the Washington government, but also in the assertion that the American government intends to conduct its relations with the French people through their duly constituted diplomatic authorities. The opinion of the president was made known last night at hia old home here in the Vermont foothill«. Information of the letter was given him by the Associated Press and without awaiting the text of the letter, the statement of his position was made in his behalf. Detailed comment was withheld, however. When confronted suddenly with the international question, Mr. Coolidge was in his Plymouth home with Mrs. Coolidge, far removed from questions of government, and with only * private telepohne at the neighboring corner «tore available for contact with Waehington and the summer executive offices at Paul Smiths. N. Y- With natives and a few lingenng tourists kept at e distance by * cordon of sceret service men, he waa resting in the seclusion of hia family. Informed of the Clemenceau letter, Mr. Coolidge for a considerable period, gave no indication of his reaction. He could be seen occasionally through * front door walking about the houae, stopping at times to stoke the wood fire in the etove in the room where, three years ego, he was administered 'the oath as president. Finally, a messenger was Stent out with word of his position on the debt funding question. It »bowed hi* position was unchanged from that revealed In hi* behalf repeatedly In recent weeks. All funding sgreemsnts except with France, have been ratified by the respective parliament« of the countries concerned, and enly two or throo minor, agreements remain to bo change—the the features change. It makes a vicious circle. “It would be hard for a woman to go back around thia circle Vo the starting point. She would have to go back to the first environment, but it might be too late after full growth is reached and the gland type decided-well. we can modify them to a certain extent, but not change them entirely. “A man is never true to a woman of this masculine type. She does not inspire tenderness and fidelity “The nose is large; she is the aggressive type, almost *o much as to be called ‘big-noted,’ like the successful maculine type. The mouth, too, is strong and firm, locked to keep back what she does not want to say. “Her eyes indicate that she is keen and shrewd. One eye is narrowed, showing a keen, shrewd mind. “The ear, long, large, without lobe, is realy indicative of some unusual turn of mind, rather cold and brutal, I’m afraid. It is too large for a woman, yet it goea well enough with a long, large face. The large boned face is called ‘acromegalic’—many faces show enlargement of bones after middle age. “She is strong-minded. Other typical pituitary strong-minded individual* are George Bernard Shaw and the great Darwin. It is the genius type. The genius may b# for good or bad. “If Mrs. Hall were a man she might be a genius; maybe she is a potential genius. At any rate she would make a good executive, though a strict boss. “Cover up the feminine hairdressing and then you have a face that looks like a man’s. “This type of woman cannot love a man to distraction. Her mental powers, her strong resistance to outside forces prevent that. If Mrs. Hall did the crime, as charged it was not a real sex crime growing out of frustrated love, but one due to injured pride end fierce anger-” ■— o ■ ........ Dr. J. L. Adams Dr. J. Q. Gran DRS.
