accepted a call to Ionia Mich has reconsidered the matter and will remain at Owens boro The Owensboro Messenger saysAgain in the fdce of an urgent call and a Uttering Inducement from a pecuniary standpoint Rev R II Cossfield has refused to leave Owens boro The publication in the Messenger Sunday morning to the effect that Dr Crossfield had received a call from the Christian Church of Ionia Mich was a great surprise to many or his congregation The announcement also that Dr Crossfield was thinking very seriously of accepting the call fell heavily upon the cars of his members Many went to church Sunday night with th expectation of hearing Dr Crossfield announce his resignation- It was breathless silence that greeted the minister after his interesting lecture on Pilgrims Progress when he stated that he had something to say He told the congregation that be had seriously thought over the call from Ionia and had come to the con clusion that he would write the next day and decline the very flattering offer He said that the Ionia congre gation told him to name his price or nducement and thay would meet it The doctor also said that be was not ready to leave Owensboro as he had rather live here than anywhere he ever resided At the conclusion of his remarks the building fairly rang with applause from the congregation- Dr Crossfield left Monday morning for Columbia Ky where he will be engaged in a protracted meeting for the next two weeks SOME SOUTH AFRICAN FIGURES From the beginning of the war in South Africa to its end 75430 British officers and men were sent home as invalids This raised the total or cas ualitiesin the South African field force to the astounding total or 97447 These figures must not however be taken as representing the permanent reduction of the British military forces through the war as a large proportion of those invalided home on account of disease subsequently recovered and were able to rejoin the service But the net loss was heavy enough- A tabulated statement of casualitics reported from the beginning of the war up to the time peace was declared has been Issued by the war office in London From this some highly interesting facts about the war may be deduced The table gives the names of thirtyfour battles in which 13 097 British officers and soldiers were killed or wounded Some of these battles lasted several days the thirtyfour battles covering altogether a period of sixtythree days of fighting The avers age killed and wounded per day of this fighting is therefore 214 In the numerous scouts and skirmishes not Included in the thirtyfour battles 15496 British officers and men were killed and wounded The total killed for the war was 5774 the total wound ed 22829 There has been no official Statement of the losses of the Boers but an unofficial report from South Africa states they lost but 3700 men Military experts believe this Is less than their losses but there is no doubt their loss was far less than that of the British as their fighting wos almost always done under cover while tbe British had to face them in the study of the official figures no possible doubt of the bravery le1vesI British officers They may criticism for having displayed a v L of acumen and military serve In some instances but there can be no doubt of the personal courage of the individ ual officers The report shows that in proportion to the number of officers and men engaged there ware nearly twice as many officers killed and wounded as enlisted men This was very much tbecasc with the American forces in the Cuban campaign and also very much the case amongst the confederate officers iu the civil war IS THE SlUJSX CRUMBLING A London cablegram to tbe Philadelphia Times say The great Sphinx of Egypt is crumbling Accordingto Longworth a scientist who has just arrived here from Cairo this wonder of the world will soon collapse in decay Civilization has been its doom As lung as the climate of Egypt changed not the Sphinx was not affect ed even with its thousands of years But the Englishman changed the cli mate with his irrigation ditches Since then every year has brought dis aster to the ancient monument The rock is breaking from its sides and falling to the ground often In large head aud huge paws have Jot been greatly disfigured yet but they are showing the effects of the damp ness and in another year they will be crumbling wih the rest of the body The Sphinx is supposed to be about 6500 years old It was built in the time of the building of the pyra raids Though the Sphinx is an em blem iu the Egyptian countries no one knows its meanin- gIt is supposed however to be a ligious symbol Tbe Sphinx which stands before the pyraiuiad of CtieojS to which it is the entrance is the largest In the world It sculptured eblflly of solid rock It Is 63 feet high and 150 feet lung the paws which are thrown out 50 feet in front are constructed of ma smryIIn the neighborhood close to It was found a shrine lined with ara goulte or Egyptian alabaster containing diorite statutes of King Sasra connecting it with him while tablets placed between its pawl by Thothmes IV record his worship of the Sphinx which continued during the nineteenth dinabty and was re newed under the Roman empire According to Phony it was the sepulcher of Amasis- IVORKEULIKE A CHARM An Irishman took contract to dig a public well When he tad dug about twentyfive feet down he came one morning and found it caved In filled nearly to the top Be looked cautiously around and found that no one was near then took off his hat and coat and hung them on the windlass crawled into some bushes and awaited events In a bhort time the people discovered that the well had rayed In and seeing Pats hat and coat on the windlass they supposed that he was at the bottom of the excavation A few hours of brisk digging cleared the loose earth from the well Just as the eager clti zens had reached the bottom and were wondering where the body was

much more for nails for barbed wire for sewing machines for divers other articles of necessity than the foreigner pays and yet the Republi cans are continually harping on the beauties of the tariff system i i 0 f I ILOWEST EVER KNOWN which for several years has been slowly but steadily re ceding has according to Director Murdoek of the United Si1rJS Weath er Bureau now reached the lowest level recorded since observations have been taken by the department Up- to August the lowest mark ever re corded was on July 11 Since that time the lake has receededfour inches The fall of the water since 1891 amounts to nearly six feet and on the low flat eastern shore this has resulted in a recession of the water line during that time of fully three quarters of a mile Speaking of this phenomenon Director Murdock said Utah his been in a dry cycle for 17 or 18 years In this period the precip station has been much below the av erage Precipitation sometimes moves in cycles of this kind and duration and I think a prolonged period of la creased precipitation is nearly due But it will tike several wet years to bring the like hack to its former level The mere declaration of President Rxisevclt that the utmost publicity must be given the trusts will not satis fy the public Action not worth is what is needed The Republicans talk glibly about what they will do to the truss if hey only get a chance They ha lii chance In the last Congress when the Republican members pigeonbored an antitrust bill The Republican party has made a record of unfailing obedience to the will of the trusts and the trusts in turn have given liberal financial aid o the Republican party The only way to get rid of the trust is drive tits Republican party from power A high tariff is the mother of trusts There were no truss until there was a pritccMve tariff and there was no tariff until there was a Republican partyTbe Georgetown Times The latest from Kansas is the propo sition of a farmer from

the bee can gather honey all night The scheme may not work but it will throw additional lighten the interesting discussion of what Isnt the matter with Kansas The Republicans neednt lay the uttering unction to their souls that they will be let off merely by crying publicity for the trusts Some thing more substantial will be de manded What do the trusts care for publicity They can afford to snap

States with it dependencies will reach the onehun drcdmilllon mark in 1910 does nut seem an exaggeration The 1900 census gave something over seventy six millions With Hawnii Porti Rico and the Phillippiucs the total probably reaches eighty eight millions This means that General Merriman counts on a twelvemillion growth during the present decade and that seems conservative enough Indeed this is nothing more than a normal growth It does not take into consideration the continuance of the present heavy imlgration which gives no indication of falling off nor docs it allow for possible boom There Is every good reason therefore to expect that when the 1910 record is made up the gentleman from Mi one sota who is head of the permanent census bureau will be able to say I told you so The establishment the permanent census bureau is expected to bring Important results With the bureau continuing institution the work In all lines is likely to be better done thin under the system tba5 has

drifting nolfixed purpose and that it will be unable to find an issue on which to make a fight both in the Congressional and the Presidential contests We are aware of the fact that the Republican party is a great power that it has en trenched itsself behind class leg islation and enjoys the confident and support of corporate wealth that it is controlling the destiny of our country holding the liberty of millions of foreign people in the palm of its hands We are fur ther aware of the fact that it has popularized itself by playing into the hands of favorite classes at the expense of the great mass of- people that it is the tool of gigantic trusts and combines that it has departed from the teaching foundersewrapped its platforms in cash and is Btearing on the high seas of Commercialism To sum it all up it is reduced to this Any platform to deceive the great mass of voters any policy to get the active aidof corporations and any legislation that will tend to prolong its hold upon the control of the government Sooner or later the great body of people will find its true bearings and will realize that Democrats have all along been ready to bat tle for such measures as will best largefare bystrong financial chords but by a common band of unrelenting work They will discover that Democracy has ever been the true champion of such reforms as are actually needed They will understand that it was for this purpose that the tariff battles have been fought and that it was on this line that the free coinage ofmoney metals became the great issue The Democratic party stands for the constitution it refuses to fol low the flag to imperialism or to barter off the rights and privileges of the masses for commercial in terests It has fixed principles and is not willing to forsake the right for the sake of victory It is not dead not drifting not lacking for noble purposes not 1thethat made it great in the past and has kept it through the trying or deals of recent

Free and Accepted Masons which meets at that in the forenoon people upon horse back and in buggies began to arrive and by the noon hour tully four hundred persons were upon the was served at 1230 and there was an abundance of the very best the country affords About 130 Hon H C Baker began delivering a Masonic address one of the best we ever heard He occupied an hour and fifteen minutes giving a partial history of the Masonic Frater nity from the building of Solomons Temple down to the present time All whO heard him were especially pleased and those who failed to hear lost an opportunity to have learned much of the history of Masonry an Institution that is doing more good for humanity than any other secret organi Jas Garnett Jr was billed for an address but on account of threaten ing weather and the long distances many had to travel to reach their respective homes he concluded it best not to longer detain the assembl- yIt was a day full of enjoyment and and to Hood Lodge and the

Caseyites will attend the Fair at this place This is the 100th aniversary of the founding of Adaircounty and while we have repeatedly called tbe attention of the readers of this paper especially the citizens of Columbia to the im portance of a celebration and a re uaionof Adair county people who have gone to other sections of our great country yet it is apparent to us that such a meeting will not be brought about and the passing of this event will go unnoticed and the people of this county may content themselves to plod along the old beaten paths marked out a century ago under clr cumstrnces that have passed into the realm of forgetfulness To our mind such a meeting would be highly enjoy able both to home folks and visitors buUt Is said the expense would be quite an item and from this stand point only so far as we know the proposed reunion will not materialize Mr Wyatt Smith who has reached a good old age has happened to sever al accidents of late which have caused him much pain While handling a cradle at harvest times he fell and cut one of his knees pretty badly Just as he was recovering from this he fell and hers his right arm and when ho was just about well he again fell and nearly broke his loft arm and as he was recovering from this a rail fell from a high fence and cut a gash across his forehead about two Inches long This last accident occurred two weeks ago and at

buyers here and they are doing a firstclass busi ness They are reliable and trade upon the square There are two reports in circulation here neither being believed but per haps this notice will be the

the surface of affairs It was boasted that this movement placed the American merchant marine In a position of proud preeminence i t had not before enjoyed since the civil war it was claimed that it was a magnificent peaceful victory made possible only by existing prosperous material conditions of the country It was a great occasion The combinatlonlsts threw up their 8100 Panamas anti the eagl screamed But a change has come over the spirit of these dreams As one of the organs of CQlJsoUda lon and combination defines the difference between sensation aid realization in the courseof n mUd kick This feeling of gratification is somewhat mitigated by the dlscowrj that simultaneously with the formation of the trust Das- sengerYates have been subjitautfelly advanced The charges previously ex acted it would seem had already reached the limit of possibility and t Is a matter dt tofczise to tad that the rates on the steamers controlled by the trusts have been advanced from twenty to fifty percent Twas ever thus The public be dd says the trustsWhenever competitions ends and combination begins the public suf fern That is the history of all trusts Glasgow Times THE STRIKE POLL Y We appeal to the Intelligence of any man It the dispatches from Shenan doah Pa do not show a serious defect incur system of government You have there two policeman shot and the police force put aut of business one merchant clubbed to death thirty or forty miners woundedsome of them fatallythe sheriff helpless and the vicinity in a state of anarchy until troops arrive we say that employers and employes must settle their own dis putes and that our only duty is to preserve order while the settlement is made And how beautifully we preserve order as a general rule Of course everybody will condemn the miners who started the riot But who were they A lot of Poles and Hungarians who had been imported in violation of law by the coal operators The miners organization tried to pre serve order and the district president lamed a proclamation strongly con demning the outbreak and directing the members to aid in keeping the peaceGovernor Stone was called upon for troops by the sheriff and declined to send them unless the citizens of the town petitioned for them The re ports say that merchants refused to sign a petition from fear that they would be boycotted by the miners if they did And so the matter drifted on with everybody reasonably antici pating what would happen And we call this governmen- tIt is not It is common imbecility It experience can teach anything it has taught what might be expected It we leave labor controversies to be settled by trials of endurance between the employers and the men The re snit has been written over and over againwritten in suffering written In loss written in destruction of property written In blood And how much longer are we who pretend to be the most enlightened people on earth to goon In this same old rule Indlanopo Us Sentirial An exchange very pertinently re marks One of the funniest sights to see are the young sapsuckers who have gone to the city and after a short time return to the country home on a visit to the old man and old woman as they slightly speak of father and mother It is remarkable how small the old home town grows how the moss has accumulated on the backs of his boyhood acquaintances These little roosters go to the city and earn a salary of probably two dollars a weekand their washing but when they come out home in the brush they cut a splurge that Is amusing extremely amusing to their country acquaintances The lads have for gotten how they used to cross the old public square as chelf pilot to the brindle cow or how they brought up the weeks laying of eggs to trade for brown sugar and a stick of candy thrown in They have forgotten the dirty face running nose one gallus and stone bruise Just wait till warm weather and you will see a lot of these now worldfamous men just drop in to kill a little time Its not more than one in halt a dozen who turn darnphool this way but some of them do and when they come around be sure to take off your hat effer your chair and make much ado for they are moneyed men
