Carolina challenged his colleague Send ator McLaurin to resign with him on the spot In order to use his own lan guage that they might be allowed to wash their dirty linen at home Mr McLaurin did not take up the gage The incident was the sequel of the very bitter controversy which arose be tween senators in South Carolina last McLaurin arose to a question of personal privilege and proceeded to explain what he charged was a con spiracy to discredit him and it did not meet the approval of certain Demo cratic leaders He declared that he was being hUe millated and according to public prints was to be excluded from the Democratic caucus because he had acted upon certain public issues in a way which he considered for the best inter ests of the country and of the people of his state He announced himself a believer in the old Democracy and after denounc ing the new Demooracy leaders who he said had brought destruction upon the party declared that he could not be driven from his old allegiance into a party with which be did not care to affiliate Mr Tillman reviewed the whole con troversy and Mr Hoar took occasion to express the opinion that it was very doubtful whether both the South Carolina seats in the s e n ate were noon reality vacant He contended that when the resignations were offer ed last springs to the governor they could not beW withdrawn thereafter having become immediately operative The climax came when Senator Till man challenged Mr McLaurin to join icupreparing their joint resignations and handing them to the presiding officer of the senate The episode was brought to an abrupt close by Sen tor Lodge moving an executive sesI ion Strange Bird Fights Farmer Elias PeabQdy who lives in the northern part of Madison county bad terrible tussle the other night

dreams by something falling heavily upon h1sI roof The thnmp was followed byI scurrying footstepsJHe jumped out of bed and grabbed his gun In the moonlight he saw the strangest kind of a thing He lowered his gun and went out to meet it Though he cried Shoo as loud as he the thing came straight at him when it came into close range Peabody grabbed it around the neck The visitor demonstrated in a second to Peabodys mind that it was not a member of the goose family for ac cording to the honest farmer it threw few kinks out of its neck andsho out both of Its long legs landing on Peabodys breast with such a force as floor him Then itstood guard over r him and his fowling piece blinking at him with great blight weld eyes Peabody says he grabbed itagain and caught it about the legs but it set its wings in motion and laid him out again He was game however and at last succeeded In getting it in a corn crib where he locked It up until morn ingWhen Peabody Inspected the bird in daylight its legs were large and short and its feet were not webbed It had- a yellow beak and large white eyes while its feathers were snow white and very coarse When he peeped through a crack the bird was walking up and down the floor turning his head in ery direction He opened the door and tit go out but it showed no sign of flying away It walked into a pool of water but hustled out in surprise if water was a new thing to it It would bump against the side of the barn and into the fence yet it is not blind Neuralgia and Lame Back Dear SIrI have been a sufferer from neuralgia and lame back foryears two

board that the editor of tho News was attempting to cast undue reflection on the Board This led me together with the other members of the Board to charge the editor of the News with malicious lying The editor of the News has several times stated that he did not mean to cast any reflection on the honor of the Board I now respectfully withdraw the personal attack made upon him and consider him- a gentleman of honor This is made that the readers cf the two papers may understand that this unpleasant controversy isso far as I am concerned at an end W D JONES The above retraction and apolo gy made

of the people of the country affected The im provemont of this water course to southern Kentucky would be of inestimable worth and Congress man Boreing should make a hard and persistent effort to bring about its improvement He should go to work now make this matter the height of his ambition join the Tennessee Congressman in his efforts and bring about re sults It would be an easy matter to show the importance of the im provements needed and if our Congressman will not enter into this work with a determination to win the people of this district should enter vigorous protest Mr Boreing has the opportunity to accomplish the best workever done for this district Wd trust bathe will not be slow torecoo ifzo the value of such an improve uipnt that he will be able to seethe star such a

more than one scheme to seize the port near the mouth of the river with a filibustering force Protests against the neglect or failure of the General Government to 1providetree navigation of the Mlssis

indeed the great blessing contained in the observance of Christmas The human beings who should feelashamed at Christmas time are those souls who having it in their power to manifest the kind liness of

these days stand for the majority They are wise investors They get a hundred fold return on their nioneyStI Louis Republic Philippine Incubus Congressman De Armond leas evi dently returned from the Philippines with a depressing conviction thatthe islands are of little value to this coun try At the same time he sees that the holding ofthem will necessitate a tremendous expenditure of American blood ond treasure The fact is apparent also that Judge De Armond has little hope that the Filipinos can ever be uplifted into a national capability for selfgovernment according to the ideals of the white races They are already he says fit to conduct a dark race government in a land of the dark race but beyond this they cannot progress If the Philip pines are permanently held by us they will be held always as alien territory their people an alien and inferior peo pIeNew considerations of worldpower may force a permanent American sovereignty over the Philippine Archipel ago as a possession of great significance in warlike diplomacy but the truth is now plain that we must pay a steep price for the empty glory Also we must be prepared to abandon the claim that we are training the Filipinos into a fitness for freedom We will beholding them in subjection as a dependent people because our war map demands that so hold them This is the sim pletruthand we should confront the truth wltboutbypocrlsy Taken all in all the Philippine outlook is discouraging We cannot hold the islands sve as dependent and subject coloniey The native races will always be hostile and insurgent American
