tallions According to present plans the battalions will meet at some central point for inspection at least four times sash year There seems to be a general misunderstanding as to the character of the new State Guards Many have been led to believe that none but Democrats will be accepted and that the guard will be strictly partisan Adj Gen Castleman has prepared a letter copies of which he sends to applicants for the privilege of organizing State militia companies In this letter he state UThe attention of the citizens of Kentucky who desire to form a part of the reorganized State Guard is called to the fact that partizanship must be avoided j that companies must represent all shades of political opinion j that politics is not consistent with the duties of the soldiers What is needed is good citizenship With this requiste the good soldier is assured Obedience to orders fideli ity sobriety neatness and con scientieus care of property are es sentiels The State Guard will be thoroughly well

like to hear from me I take the pleasure of address ing them allas I promised sever al letters before I left Ou last October 8 I boarded the train at Campbellsville for the Lone Star State and after a short run came to Lebanon there we enjoyed a short rest of three hour and then another run brought us to the Great Empire city of Kentucky Louisville and there gurgling the ice cold water for a few hours and surrounded by arts beauty all was lovelyOur next leap was in the dark but the next morning when we were permitted to gaze upon na tures beauty we were in a laud of cotton but itseemed to be of an inferior grade We soon reached the great metropolis city of Mem phis here wo saw the first soldiers They reminded me of the Blues and Grays of 18G165 In the afternoon we traveled through the swamps of Arkansas nothing very attractive there but through the darkness we were wafted on South ward unconscious ofour move ment and when morning dawned we awoke to gaze upon the great State of Texas Having reached Commerce we had to lay over ten hours on account of smallpox but we reached our destination about 8 oclock Wednesday night We were met by Mr Spencer Dohouey with his hack who

on blotting paper grown and cultivated with care until per haps after many hours close atten Ition they have assumed shapes of deU icate pattemand extremebeauty- If the reader hasneyer befpreread of beautiful ink blots rind paradoxI callet on will become so fascinated with the idea that he will take up the hobby of cultivating blots with enthusiasm- It must be explained that the blots under discussion are itotXmaoVby merely filling a pen with Ink and a1 lowing the drops to iall oa paper they arc grown and watched with ann ui care until they attain their full meu ure of beauty and form Th yin jbe made with ordinary black orhlui black writing inkor With colored inks or with mixtures of several kind of inks and as a blot grows the col ors of the ink sometimes fonuinto differently colored concentric rings each coloring being sharply divided from the next In order to grow beautiful blots you only require a small basin an ink bottle a piece of glass tubing or a firm straw a piece of soft lampwick and of course some ink and blotting paper The ink bottle is placed in the basin and is filled with ink Tho is inserted in the tube which is inyan upright position by a lid of paper cr tin with a hole in the center The blotting paper is then placed over the basin EO that its center touches the slightlyprotruding wick Thcblot = ting paper thus fed by the wick ah= sorls the ink while the blot grows in the form of a circle and gradually widens owing to the force of capillary attraction In less than an hour it will probably be four inches across it may finally attain a diameter of about 12 inches It must not be supposed that therq is anything at all difficult in the way of blotgrowing If you have not a basin a wick or a tube at hand dis pense with the basin put any extem porary wicksay a piece from a tow cls fringein any extemporary tube instancefm ink bottle arrange matters so that one end of the wick touches the ink and the other end touches the blot ting paper and wait for the blot to developYour interest will grow with the blots It will be observed that the edges of the circles into which the blots form are sometimes serratedor daintily scalloped although someinks preserve a perfectly smoothoutline for each of the two three or more concentric circles into which they may break It becomes absorbingly interesiingtoobseivethedifferentdevelopments every new experiment yields anew re suIt When the blot has been grown with interestingtto dilute the ink with water and then to grow another blot and note the difference which will often be sur prising Or this experiment may be varied by feeding a blot with plain water after it has beta grown with UIH diluted ink the water will often cause the original blot to spread in a most remarkable and unexpected
