think not. The Saviour asks you to
send the Gospel to every creature
He also asks you to feed the hungry
and clothe the naked. He tells you
to visit the sick and those in prison.
He also sends you after the sheep
that have gone astray. There is no
such thing for his true followei as
•'lumping it." I cannot pay my
pastor in the beginning of flic year,
admirable practice as it is, and then
wash my hands of his conccrns. I
owe him my daily prayers, frequent
words of encouragement and every
kindly act that the passage of time
puts within my power. I can't
count out my tithe of all I am even
likely to have, and then close my
pure against all appeals. "The
liberal soul shall be made fat; and
he that watereth shall be watered
also himself." While I am lending
to the Lord He is redeeming His
engagement to pay; and He pays
with interest, and so I have anothei,
and another mite that I can put into
the Lord's treasury, for we draw
upon the bank of Providence that
never fails. And after all that we
can do, "we are improfitable ser-
vants ; we have done that which was
our duty 4o do."

the flames were coining through the
roof. It soon reached a rick of hay
containing about twenty tons.

spreading further. Cause of the
fire remains a mystery.

On the 22d inst. Mr. B. H. Stone,
editor of the Tahlequah Telephone,
was shot by Mr. E. C. Boudinot, Jr.,
editor of the Cherokee Advocate.
"The ball passed through Mr.
Stone's neck from the left and out
at the back of the neck about two
inches to the right of the vertebra."
Mr. Stone lived from 2:30 o'clock
p. m. to 8:40 o'clock p. m. For
some time these gentlemen have been
sparring at each other through their
papers. Since the recent election
for Chief their articles have been
pointed and personal. As a mem-
ber of the Downing party Mr. Stone
was an active worker tor the electioi
of Judge Mays. Mr. Boudinot be-
longs to the National party and fa-
vored the cause of Mr. Bunch. The
controversy since the election of
Judge May-' has grown warmer and
more personal until on the morning
of the 22d the Telephone appeared
with some serious charges made
against Mr. Boudinot as an employee
of the Cherokee goververnment.
After reading the charges Mr.
Boudinot went to the office of Mr.
Stone and demanded retraction, and
on Mr. Stone's refusal to do so fired
the fatal shot.
It is very unfortunate that this
sad affair should occur at this partic-
ular time, as considerable feeling
