work J w COFFEY tr1 MR BRYANS PAPER Laboribg men can enjoin monopoly at the ballot box Its a wise injunction that recog nizes its own limitations Mr Babcock seems to have ping ponged the tariff question to a good situation finish It seems that the beef trust used that injunction to stepladder it prices a little higher Democratic victories are not to be won by following the lead of Republi can sympathizers Doubtless Mr McLaurin would take itif everybody wonld agree to say noth ing about it It seems that Mr Babcock takes pride in laving his public record scor ed in the error column Mr Babcock should have told those Iowa Republicans that he was only joking when he said it The injunction against the coal miners sticks but the injunction against the beef packers is ignored The man who invented postal cards is dead but he who writs both ways across them still survives King Edwards coronation was pull ed oil without a single hitch even of Mr Reids abbreviated unmention steel trust is working overtime but not because it is filling any orders for shackles from the administration Having enjoined the beef trust Mr Knox should now mandamus it and compel it to acknowledge the injunc ion The antismoke crusaders should turn their attention to Mr Knox His efforts to curb the trusts always end in Shaw has been doing a lit tle keynoting up in Vermont Can it be possible that Vermont Republicans need it- Addicks announces tbat he wants whatis coming to him from Delaware and if he will expose his neck he is likely to get it The attention of The Commoners called to the Lots of Five sub scription otter printed on page 3 of this ueIWhy is it that an injunction a alnstC laboring man is so speedy while the the process is so slow when abplled to the beef trust After investigating himself Crown ioshield absolved himself from all blame General Smith seems to have overlooked a sure thing 4IJi mast rt be confessed that Mr Knoxs attempts at exploiting the strenuous life suffer greatly from the effects of amateur press agent work The Memphis News unkindly insin uates that perhaps Mr Morgan objects to poker because the other fellow stands some show of winning Mr Roosevelt may plug the bulls eye five times straight with a revolver but he appears to be unable to hit a trust with a blunderbuss The planet Eros has been foundI again which fact leads us to hope that the president will yet find the crimi nal clause in the antitrust lawIThe man who believes that private monopolies are good things draws on his imagination while the private monopolies are good things draws on monopolists are drawing dividends Attorney General Knox Is a good soldier according to the Roosevelt definition for he seemed not only willing but anxious to fight After vowing that he would never be taken and would live to a green old age Mr Harry Tracey has executed a Babcock tariff revision finish The gentleman who claims to be a democrat and urges his party to adopt- a straddle platform Is always sure of a hearing in the Republican papers The Chicago men detected in the counr terfeiting will be prosecuted as crimi pals not tenderly handled by writs of injunction It seems that a labor union cannot declare a dividend of food supplies although on anthracite coal trust ca declare dividends of money wrung from labor The Chinese estimate a mans ability by the size of his gall not by stne weight of his brain The average trust mag date would be a great man in China The Iowa democratic state conven tion should congratulate the repupll can state convention upon its cordial indorsement of tbe Democratic doc trine of tariff reform The impudent gentleman chastised by Mr Knox were not beef packers Mr Knox harkens not to the impu dent laughter and language of the men who pack beef IRVWS STORE The droutb in this part remains un broken and crops and pastures are poor and waters are low Flux are not quite so prevalent as they were a week ago Most of our people took

Rosenbaum and Miss Maud Loy Messrs Tom Collins Alva Burbridge Lawrence Wilkinson and O B Willis attended the Russell Springs Fair on Wednesday OBITUARY On Saturday Aug 9 little Martha Ellen daughter of Win and Olement Turner was called from earth to dwell with God in Para diseFor only nine short years was she lent to these loving parents to gladden their earthly home when the Lord in His mysterious way called her to a home beyond the skies where cometh no sorrow or was a bright intelligent little girl whom all who knew knew but to love and while we cannot understand why one so young should be taken from us forever we know that His ways are not our ways and can only bow in humble submission and say Thy will be done II If there is any comforting word we might speak to the sorrow stricken family and friends in their time of bereavement we would gladly do so and thus try to comfort them iu their grief but there is One who said Suffer the little ones to come unto me 11to whom alone they may look for comfort in their hour of sorest need and while we deeply mourn their loss it is comfotting to know that while she cannot come to us we may go to her if our lives are as pure and beautiful a the life of this little one during her stay upon earth A FiaiEND r n7J5 ONE WOMANS VIEWS Life is a school of vissitudes All is not lost that is in peril Nature abounds in smiles why not we also- Feelings pass away but the good we have done lasts eternally Great men are very often great fools with a great amount of mon eyThere is no trait so easily detected as incincerity or so much despisedThe scorching sizzlin days have come the hottest of the yearHuman nature always crops out every time a collection is taken up in church Isnt it strange how many good resolutions we put aside for future consideration If the devil is not as black as he is painted perhaps the blonde is not as yellow as she is bleached Flattery is often a traffic of mu tual meanness where although both parties intend deception neither is deceIvedColton We live in the midst of the bab blings of the entire world Journ alism reenforced by the telegraph and the railroad has revolution ized the conditions of society By a semispiritual link we are brought into daily communication with all nations and all communities- An evil thought may come and then be suppressed and conquered thereby not doing evil but no man can tell what harm the ex pression of an evil thought may do It is even worse thsrefore to speak impure words than to harbor im pure thoughts for the evil words go forth far beyond the range of mans knowledge THE REAL ISSUE The necessity for regulation of the protected trusts though a sen sible businesslike revision of the tariff such a revision as can only be accomplished by putting the democratic party in powerbe comes more apparent every day The enormities of the present system have been laid bare as had never been done before It has been charged in a vague sort of way heretofore that the protected interests had constructed the schedules of tho Dingley law so that they were able to sell their products abroad cheaper than they were sold to home consumers but it was left to Chairman Griggs of the national campaign committee to furnish the facts to prove this charge This he has done fully and completely He has shown by the figures of the manufactures that typewriters which are sold to American pur chasers for 100 each are sold for export at 55 that sewing ma chines of American make for which the home consumer pays 40 are offered to foreigners at 17 that tin plate is offered for export at 810 a box while the American purchasers must pay 419 that lead is offered for ex port ni onehalf the domestic price wire rope at less than half wire nails at a little more than half barbed wire at threefourths the domestic price Shovels are off ered to foreigners at about two thirds the cost charged the home purchasers axle grease at exactly half the price and so on down the listEven these figures sfcartlin g as they are do not represent the bottom prices at which the foreigners are able to purchase as it is known special discounts are of fered the export trade bymost of the African protected manufact urers The figures quoted above represent the selling price abroad without taking into account this special discount The differences aro however glaring enough to demonstrate the enormities of the present republican tariff law They carry home to the people the crimes that have been committed in the name of protection There can be no difference of opinion among the men who bear the burdens of crysThe consumer has without protest borne the burdens of the taxad dad by the tariff whettHebeleived d L that by so doing he was aiding in the establishment of some infant industry to continue its operations on the basis of reasonoble profit j but he has never consented to tax ation for the disect benefit of the foreign consumer and he never willChairman Griggs has furnished the facts for the real issue of this campaign au issue for not a sin gle campaign but one which will be paramount with the American people until the democratic party branchges issue upon which all democrats no matter what theirminor differ ences can and will harmonize It is an issue upon which the par ty can and will winAtlanta Constitution Q UALIFIC ILIONS HAPPINESS BY MAX OllELL People either men or women who possess the following qualifications are most likely to be happy in matrimony especiallythis goes without saying if both husband and wife pos sess the- mFirstA spirit of toleration which will always make one of the two leni ent towards the shortcomings of the otherSecondA cheerful temper which will make both always see the bright and rosy side of things and laugh at the thousand and one little miseries of conjugal life Third A generous temperment which will make them easily forgive and forget little offenses and only re memper services and good turns FourthA genial philosophy which will keep them satisfied with them selves and with each other Fifth A keen sense of humor which will ever prevent them from making fools ot themselves in their own eyes as well as in each others and will fill their home with gayety SixthAn artistic temperament and the love of the beautiful which will prevent them from making matrimonial life prosy dull and monotonous and will constantly enable them toI find something that will keep alive their ideas and feed their intellectual wantsSeventhA sober constitution which will suggest to them that the best matrimonial meal should be eaten discreetly and never devoured ravenously Lova dies more easily of indi gestion than of want Eighth Self control which will pre vent them from committing one act or even saying one word which they may afterwards regret Nlnthopenness which will cause them to say outright what they mean mention what little grudge one may have against the other and never to brood and consume their own smoke in suck and retirement The sky of matrimony should never be allowed to remain long cloudy Rather than that let one who was right and knows it make advances and get a reconcilia tion if the who was wrong will not quickly come forward and do it TenthUnselfishness which will cause concessions to be made constantly Eleventh Thoughtfulness of the smallest details of every day life careful consideration for the little fads and fancies of the other self abnegation of euerv moment which will suggest to each one to do this or that to please the other TwelfthHonestly and stralghtfor forwardness will Inquire in each the respect of the other There can be passion without respect or even esteem but there conuot be love ThirteenthGreat strength of character in theman an inexhaustible fund of tenderness in the woman and bound less devotion in the other FourteenthGood health and intel ligence Sickly and stupid people ought not to marry nay ought tobe forbidden to marry by law- FifteenthSuperiority of the man over the woman in age in size in in telligence and In fortune If this is not a necessary qualification for hap piness in marriage It is one that will generally help it SixteenthThe lpve of a quiet life of retirement of the country of child en of animals of flowers and of all the simple pleasures of life Seventeenth The love of property which prevents jealousy makes a per son prefer what be nas got to anything else simply because it belongs to him and therefore makes him love borne Eighteenth Similarity not of char acter necessary but of tastes IllS PROUD RECORD We point with pride says the Texas Trigger to the proud record of Senator Sluggem who needless t say is our candidate for reelection This is what he has accomplished dur ing the last term Made a postmaster of the editor of the Trigger Secured an appropriation of 8100 000 to improve Rocky River Secured an appropriation of 50000 to locate Rocky River Secured an appropriation of 880000 to provide Rocky River with a pump ing eye One bloody nose Shot at three times Returning fire three times Missed one Bit off two ears Choked five opposing senators Knocked out four senators Broke eight senatorial jaws Agreed to give return matches to all his opponents- In view of the amount of unfinish ed statedraf that falls to his lot we are of the opinion that the only proper course for the people of the state to pursue is to honor him with another term Baltimore American THE Jill CROW NEGRO In a sermon preached recently at Macon Ga Rev W W Lucas a ne gro minister said I have decided that the only way to get rid of the Jim Crow car is to get rid of the Jim Crow negro It I could use 200OoO bars of soap on the unwashed negroes that travel on trains and hang around depots I would solve the negro prob lem about twenty per cent Lazy ragged barefoot fellows longing for sliver slippers and long white robes and counting themselves worthy ne glecting to provide a home for their families on earth and yet claiming a house not made with their hands in Gods heaven The white man is try ing to make this earth blossom as a rose and the negro is getting ready to die The white man is organizing business enterprises and the negroes organizing societies to turn out at their funerals Now I object to a 8100 funeral for a fiftycent negro The negro eats up and dresses away all he makes One square meal on Sunday sweeps away all the wages of the week He reminds me of the mule which ate the shipping tag from his eg An old negro exclaimed Gee dat mule dun eat up his wharhes gwine Thats what the negro does he eats up his living MR LINCOLN ON PANICS The Washington correspondent of the Chicago RecordHerald says that hundreds of letters and telegrams are pouring in upon the President at Oy stea Bay urging him to go slow on the trust business Capitalists bankers and heads of big insurance companies and managers of great railroad and other corporations are trying to intim idate the President into abandoning his program Their idea is that he will hurt business and they do not hesitate to predict that if a panic were to come the Presidents war on trusts would be held responsible thertfor Abraham Lincoln was once confronted with threats of panics In reply to the suggestion that the course he had adopted might result in a panic Mr Lincoln in a letter addressed to True man Smith under date or November 10 1860 wrote I am not insensible to any commercial or financial depres sion that may exist but nothing is to be gained by fawning artund the spectable scoundrels who got it up Let them go to work and repair their mischief of their own making and then perhaps they will be less greedy to do the like again Heres a boquet of fools The fool girl looking for abeau a fool boy proud of his clothes the fool widow looking for a husband the knowitall fool who will not admit that there Is a possibili ty of his judgment being at error the the egotiscical fool who thinks he runs the community and last but not least the fool who thinkshis money entitles him to be ranked higher in the scale of social excellence than his pauper neighbor He stands on a selferected pedestal and exhibits his asinine quail ties to the mirth ot his fellows He excites more pity than contempt Every community has its quota of these fools Sulphur Springs Gaxette Its well

of State Treasurer subject to theactlon of the Democratic party In another column will bo anon an interview of Eld W K AzUll concerning the business advance ment within the limit of the ac tive citizens of this town He mentions two lines that would be profitable to the men or company who would back them Wo need waterworks we need an electric plant Both would be paying in vestments and would add to the comfort and convenience of the town Mr Azbill has been con nected with a good number of successful business enterprises and he has returned to his old home hereto assist us in pulling out of the ashes of indifference and to advance the public good Other articles will appear later The Somerset Journal opposes the plan of going against Vincent Boreing as suggested in our last issue and demands a straight Democratic nominee Its editor states that it is not a hopeless fight and if Mr Garnett of Adair will lend his name and show his face Democrats and their friends will do the rest and that another barrelmay not save the gentle man from Laurel Our sugges tion of last wesk the endorsement of the Prohibition candidate was made for the purpose outlining what we believe to be the strongest fight to be made against Mr Boreing So tar as we know Adair county has no candidate for the honor though she has a good number of Democrats who are worthy and able to represent this or any other district The News will abido tho action of its party sup port its nominee if a nomination 13 made and defend its priiiciples It is our judgment that a nomina tion is useless that it is not a good political move but if the Committee demands a nomination we take the liberty to waive Dem ocratic Congressional aspirations for Adair Wo do not believe it good policy to be Tyed from allies Did

Eitab lUhcd In Baiton Park System While a park is primarily pleasure ground there are certain other ways in which it can sometimes be utilized for the public good A notable example of this is found in the metropolitan park reservation of Boston which provides sites for two scientific establishments the meteorological observatory on the Great Blue hill and the geodetic observatory In the Middlesex fells which arc so located as to add distinct Interest to the scenery and to carry on tech nical work under the most favorable circumstancesThe these the meteorological observatory Is maintained by Mr A Lawrence notch as a branch of the Harvard observatory on the highest nolnt of land so near the sea between acne and Florida It is a picturesque stone building with a low round tow er fully equipped with meteorological instruments During recent years the most interesting work of the station has not however been done on the beautiful peak 635 feet above the sea level but in the overhanging clouds thousands of feet higher than the servatory Itself These investigations of tho upper air have been made by means of kites of scientific construct- Ion which carry various self record Ing instruments including an anemom eter an alcohol thermometer a hydro scope and a barometer The progress which has been made in graphftl height Grttttit inItea lent tea level 1860 2070 2772 150738 1171 7330 7400 8970 The highest flight 15800 feet something over three miles was made July 10 last year and was the means of securing an observation at an altitude greater than that of Mont Blanc The site of the geodetic observatory of the Massachusetts Institute of Tech nology Is on a hill In the Middlesex fells in another part of the reservation but still within sight of the Blue Hill station It Is a small building con structed of field rock and is practically cut in two by an opening which allows observations of the meridian from one side of the horizon to the other Among the advantages of this location may be included a firm foundation for the most delicate instruments free from the vi bratlons caused by railroad and highway traffic an absence of magnetic dis turbances and a view of the heavens unobstructed by smoke or dust The observatory is a valuable magnetic sta tion and Its observations will be incor porated in the general magnetic work of the United States government ACTOR UPSET SCHEDULES ainnnfleld Refilled to Hide Feat and Created Confucian on the Alton Because Richard Mansfield was once In a small railroad wreck and therefore does not like fast riding the train serv ice of the Chicago and Alton between St Louis and Kansas City was thrown topsy turvy the other night many fright trains were delayed an hour passenger trains were made to side track at the wrong time and the people who used the Alton between St Louis and Kansas City were more or less ells comfited all because Mansfield did not want to ride faster than 20 miles an hour says the Chicago RecordHerald The Mansfield train left East St Louis for Kansas City on an eight hour schedule and started out at miles an hour When the train reached Itoodhouse Ills Mansfield sent for the conductor This train is running too fast he said I want the speed reduced to 20 miles an hour All right sir said the conductor and until evening the train ran slower Dispatches were sent out nil along the line and the other Alton trains waited long on side tracks for the Mansfield special to crawl by It was dark when the train reached Slater Mo and It was concluded that If the speed were Increased the actor might not notice It But It happened that just at that time Mansfield sat down to his supper and the motion of the car threw some coffee from the cup into tho saucer Stop said Mansfield this train Is going too fast So again the speed was reduced and the train due at Kansas City at 0 oclock did not arrive until long after midnight Ethnology Expedition to Cuba Ethnological Investigations in China to continue

strike of supers and It occurred at Buffalo during Jfc3 Hollands engagement in that city It all happened Wednesday night May 15 On Monday and Tuesday the twenty odd supers employed in the pro duction had been meek and docile but by Wednesday the spirit of unrest bad seized them and after a conference they determined to demand al per week more than their contracts called for Of course according to their rea soning the management would have to accede to their demand as the play could not be produced without them The demand wax made upon the stage manager after the curtain had been runs up on the third act Miss Holland was just going on in the strong ballroom scene When she was Informed of tbe situation she did not rant or rave or apparently become ex cited but instead quietly whispered to the stage manager Cut them out Thus it happened that the supers watched the let from the wings the audience being unaware that anything curtain rang down Miss Holland went to her dresaing room and sent a ipesaenger for the supers They all filed solemnly and sadly Into the stuffy room and there saw a dark hair ed little lady with big black eyes which looked them through and through Gentlemen she said
