vrotoru i K6ntU KU Democratic Party Carries the State The sun shines bright in my old Kentucky home for the Dem ocratic party has scored the great est victory it has ever known Mr Beckham is elected by a good safe majority it ranging from eight to fifteen thousand From every section of the State comes reports of increased majorities and clearly indicates that the Democratic party is strong enoughand willing to save the State in every crisis In this fight Democratic sentiment overrides the all com bined powers of money coertion and fraud At this hour i t seems clear that only two Republican Congressman in this State have been elected Taking everythinginto consideration the Kentucky Dem ocrats made the best fight nd scored the greatest victory in the history of the State but we must take the bitter and the sweet It seems clear that McKinley has won in the National contest wild unless our party has won in the lower house of Congress McKinleyism will stil dominate in National affairs unchecked and unrestrainedAt the returns are not sufficient for ujcitojgive a correct report from thestates but they clearly indicate Mcinleys eleo tion Bryan carries Indiana by a nice majority a Democratic Governor is elected in Illinois while McKin ley car cesthat Stat by 40000 Maryland falls in o Republican ranks by a small ajority and Now York heaves up 100 Mn In our nex e wit give the correc returns as it is impossible to obtainthem now The fight throughout tile country has been a great one and the result is not unexpected fo it would have been miraculous forffiryan to have wjn when mIllionS of money cor porate power of every form and the streng power of a great party thoroughly intrenched were all ar rayed against him The plain people of the land the wage earn ers and producers must yet suffer a little longer to fatten the in comes of corporate greed We do not believe that the election of McKinley voices the honest senti ment of the majority of the people for the great corporate interests of the country acting with the Republican party have put up their millions to buy intimidate and coerce the suffrage of the wage earners of the country but it seems that the die is cast the fidht made and lost but we had rather possess Bryans integrity abilityand defeat an McKinleys purchased power over the people of this country Bryan is greater in defeat than MoKinley robed in power and the principles forwhich he has s o faithfully contended will eventually triumph Let no Democrat be discouraged for the reward is promised to the true and faithful EG ORear

three or four votes Warren county which was claim ed by the Republicans gave a Democratic majority of nearly 500 votes insuring the reelection of Hon John S Rhea to Congress Civil Liberty is a mighty good thing to have in a political family Casey county is joined to h idols and gave her usual 500 ma jority for the Republican ticket Oar rooster is perfectly delighted with the election of Beckham and the reduction of the Republican vote in Adair county Next year he will shake himself pieces This election proves conclrf ively that the statements of ntlonal Chairman are not alt6gaher r liable v

complete passing away of women of leisure asks the editor of the Century There are moments when one asks himself that question with genuine apprehension and the moments are likely to be most frequent during the holiday months f when nature herself appears to insist that the strained cords of life shall be a little loosened To be a man of leisure has always according to the Jaws of our national code Involved a late reproach but so powerful is the influence of the spirit of the times among us that to be a woman of leisure may soonseem almost as bad The women who work In one way or another because they must to live are joined in yearly greater numbers by women who work because they choose to work order to be independent Outside of this the clubs and societies that promote literary patriotic philanthropic activities in those who have no profes sional labors and the spell of outdoor life and Its vigorous sports over wo men who without these things would be quite idle have so wrought upon feminine existence that the type woman who meets and greets you in her quiet drawing room as one who has long days of repose behind her and looks calmly forward to others of the same tenor Is becoming rare to the point of impressing one as an exotic It Is unthinkable that any one should seriously wish to pick a quarrel at this late day with the new quIcken- Ing interest of womens lives The subject has passed beyond the province of discussion Nevertheless it is an assured fact that if we were to have only busy women in the future and women hurried and harried the whole of life would be incomparably the poorer for us Somewhere in the stress a and strata of endeavor and advance there must be stoppln places where one may rest and dream a little cent res there must be of some sort where one may momentarily drop out from the moving column and free of the noise and dust feel onessoul There must be a pause now and then Th must be intervals however fewa far between for the deeper stiller inhalations that bring renewal and refreshments and enable one to s again and start straight Those cen tres those intervals ithas always been the primary and essential function women to render possible and it must ever be It belongs to them alone to perform that function and if tb omit to do so there is nothing to make good the loss Cotton Still Growing The talk now is of a ten million to a ten and threequarter million bale coL- ton crop This warm weather in the South is making cotton almost as fast min cpteuiber but every additional vbale will be welcomed and will be sold at a good price English cotton statisticians take a gloomy view of the situation should there be only a nine and a half million crop for this would not be equal to the consumption At 3tbe least spinners will take with million bales of as much aslastyear and that will use up every pound that will be produced this year leaving noI reserves in sight The picking of elev en million bales even would doubtless be the best thing that could happen It would put an end to ten ceut cotton but the price would still be lucrative and the South would continue to di yersify its crops With tencent cotton to the eng oj the season it will be im j possible to get many farmers next spring to considder the idea of another kind of cropland in two or three yea rstc there would be the same cry of over production The fine weather now pre vaillngls not only providing au abun ance of wellpaid labor to the cotton pickers but it is providing necessa raw material to millions of spindles is filling the

dilligent thoughtful and conscientious a woman may be in her endeavors and desires to meet her hus band with a face unmarked with the cares and perplexities of the days du ties theeffort is of very little use If the husband comesbome with his tern per awry and his metaphorical teat h nters bristling and ruffled The most angelic disposition in the world could not long remain proof against dlscour agement if such appreciation were ac corded it day after day Men have a much greater rcsponsi bility in homemaking than they are willing to admit It is much easier ton shift the obligations upon the women and children of the family than to un dcrtake what is really an arduous task It is no easy matter te keep the tem per and the tongue under such con trol that neither impatience nor un kind words shall get the better of on intentions and mothers of families are often quite at their wits end to de ofvise meaus to get through with some of the trying days without giving in despair How disheartening then after making every effort to tranquil ize herself and the entire household order that the commonplace platitude may be observed and that she m meet her husband with a smile to have him come in and for the merest trifle or perhaps for no real reason at all set the whole house by the ears with some outburst of temper The smile the kind word the the ful rooms the dainty and

disciplined What flan Would Do tartA man of wide reputation in the literary world and also well known in social and business circles says If I ofwers a woman 1 would think nothing better worth my while than to first have a good and liberal education I epdo not mean by that that I would be satisfied with nothing less than a col legc training though that is good in its way and I would know history and geography and literature with enough arithmetic to attend to my own ac counts and business affairs should oc eosins require If I were a woman I should considder myself very incompetent to take up the lines of household management without a good working knowledge of cooking and cleaning and sewing If I were a woman I would learn to do every bit of work that is generallyconceded to lie within womans domain anothaerasman I would inform myself upon theas topics of the times and current events would know something about theoflatest books the latest plays a little about music and a little about art even it I could not know much about any of these things Then when my husband or my children or my friends were ready for a halfhours chat 1 could be counted on to be companionable I
