interest on old war claims Tbe prosecution of the matter was carried to successful conclusion and tbe state will within tbe next few months be richer by 31300000 The concluding chapter of the story is found in a Frankfort dispatch to the Cincinnati Enquirer last Wesdesday It is more than probable that by action of Gov Beckham the redeemable bonded Indebtedness of Kentucky will be completely wiped out before the end of March The claims of the Commonwealth against the Federal government for 1300000 principal and Interest of money advanced by the commonwealth during the civil war have been allow ed at Washington and only the form al action of Congress is nessary for the transfer of this sum to the treasury of Kentucky Since it has become certain a that the money will be fortbcom ing numerous suggestions have been offered as to tbe disposition that should be made oUt Principally it has beenV that the money should be expended in the erection of a new capitol building Gov Beckham however who was largely instrumental in see curing the allowance of the claims will not favor the expenditures for new capitol With the exception atcthe school debt which is a perpetual obligation Kentucky has a

more advantageous terms than those under which the resent bonded indebtedness of the state was incurred Governor Beckham is to be congrat ulated upon the wisdom of the stand he has taken as to the final distribution f this fund as much as in securing its ayment from tbe national govern mentGlasgow Times BURNED TO DEATH Miss Mary White aged 72 years was urned to death at her home near Hiseville last Friday She was alone in her room Friday morning when a sgark from tbe open fireplace ignited her dress and her body was burned to a crisp Every stitch of clothing was burned off her body and when Mrs George Atwell wbo livedI with her entered her room she found her body charred beyond recognition The poor woman was not dead when discovered but lingered in great agony until Friday night Miss White was very feeble and If she called for help was to too weak toI make herself heard as Mrs Atwe1 was in another partft the house at the time but her The deceased was a sister of Mr John M White of Horse Caye and was a most excellent good Christian woman greatI ly beloved by all who knew her Glas gow Times CHINESE SLUMMING A Chinese woman young and pretty with a girl companion of about her own age was makinga tour of inspection through New York It could not be determined by an onlooker what her object might be She was Intense ly interested in the skyscrapers and went in and out of buildings with the activity and persistency of a book agent However she carried nothing in her hand but a paper fan which she opened and closed daintily with a rat tie of jade bracelets She and her friend went in and out of elevators and rode to giddy heights With no purpose that any one could detect they peered here and peeped there all of the time opening and shutting doors with sly eagerness and much curiosity Finally some one who had met them repeatedly In the course of the day asked what they were doing Tte Chinese maid answered quick as a DashuMeall the same slumming today New York Herald THE TWO TURKEYS One of the most peculiar coincidences that has been hearJ recently was told the other day by a mar wboe veracity can not be questionul even iu an extreme case like this one He said that three years ago he had two turkeys that he was fattening for the Christmas festivities They were kept in the back yard of his home on Clalborne eet and were allowed the freedom of it as there was a high fence around it and the birds could not escape unless the gate was left open This is what happened on the day before Christmas and the turkeys wandered out to the street After that all trace of them was lost Enquiry made of all the neighbors was unproductive of any information as to the whereabouts of the missing turkeys One year later on Christmas Eve the back gate was again left open and in walked two turKeYs whichI went to roost just as if they were per fectly at home Thinking that thayI belonged to someone of the neighbors dllligent inquiry was made but nobody bad lost any turkeys and nobody knew where they had come from What is more the man says he never asable to find where those turkeys came from and the mystery of their ap pearance was as complete as that of the disappearance of the other two Bardstown Record faSbED BEING PRESIDENT The fact that Thomas B Reed was the nomination for vice presJ dent on the ticket with McKinley in 189G and declined it reminds the New York World that there are four stances in our history in which very eminent men missed the presidency by refusing the second place on their partys national ticket Daniel Webster refused to run with William Henry Harrison and again with Zachary Taylor His not immodest estimate of is own merits would not permit him to be the tall of any lesser mans kite Hence we had Presidents Tyler and Fillmore when we might have had President Webster Benjamin Fv Butler of Massachusetts disdained to run with Lincoln in 1864 and that gave usPresident Johnston while But ler lived to spend a considerable fortune in vain efforts to reach the position which not knowing it he spurned Roscoe Conkling was given an anre stricted liberty to name the vice presidential candidate by the Garfield leaders in 180 and instead of taking himself stowedit on Chester Alan Arthur who thus beeamB president PresidentRooseveltit is interesting 10 remember would not be in the White House today if he could have ad his own way at the Philadelphia convention in 1900 where he protested to the last moment against being shelved in the vice presidency A REMARKABLE SPEECH The court room at New Boston Texas has been the scene of a most markable case being tried that of the State of Texas vs Col Jno Hallum charged with shooting W A Forbes a mi nister who had ruined Hallums home Col Hallum was an utter stranger and previous to the trial his funeral badbeen preached all over the county for the purpose of poisoning the peoples mind against him Tbe lawyers through fear of boycott re fused to defend him and Col Hallum being a noted lawyer and historian defended himself like Paul when arraigned before Agrippa and Festus Col Hallum Is an old gentleman his head white as hoar frost but his form straight as an Indians There he stood before a packed jury and in a crowded court room and spoke for three hours and his speech was filled with pathos and Promethean fije it was the most eloquent and forceful ever delivered in the history of Amer lean jurisprudence Its publication gives to the world the greatest piece of forensic literature extant At times during his speech there was not a dry eye in the audience Seveaal times the bailiff pad to remove the crowd that crushed him in an endeavor to hear his every word he was interrupted by ministers wife presenting him with a boquet of flowers The jury acquitted him without leaving the box The Sickle Publishing Co Little Rock Ark has published all the factain thecaseand Col Hallums famous speech In book foray andsells it for 50 cents direct It is worth twice that amount and every one who believes in the virtue of woman and the protection of home should Jead it t A FEW ATHLETIC DON TS Dont exercise for an hour at least after meals Dont exercise an instant after you feel exhausted Dont forget to Inhale slowly when performing any exercises Here are a few donts to bear in mind when performing any athletics Dont forget that every woman is as young as she looks but she can not look young with a broken figure Dont use too much force if exercise is too vigorous you will be exhausted before you can complete it Dont exercise one part of the body too much and another part nut at all let the development be symmetrical Dont stand with the back bent over the shoulders thrown forward the head dropped and the chest sunk in Dont exercise beyond the ability of the heart to keep pace with you Pal pitation is a certain indication of protrude the hips and abdo men or rest the weight unevenly upon the feet No exercise is of any benefit whatever unless correct standing po sition is taken every time A GOOD CAMPAIGN STORY I spoke from the same platform last autumn with a funny fellow who told the best story I heard in the campaign

work on the first train east from Frisc o As the locomotive pulled up into the mountains it moved slower and slower and the new brakeman counting the miles began to be greatly dissatisfied with his job But before reaching the summit the train broke in two At the rate of 50 miles an hour the rear endwent backing down the mountain sideDontjump shouted the conductor to the new brakeman Stick to it

statement concerning the assaSS- Ination of Gov Goebel He says that he has freely and voluntarily made a full and complete revela- tIOn of his knowledge of the whol affair and that he feels like a new- man Consoience is a lasher Yontsey tells a straight plain story and states positive- lthat Howard fired the shot an that Taylor Powers and Finley laid the plot though several others he says wore parties to it It is not our mission to enter a pros ecution against the accused it is not our desire to have or to hear of an innocent man being prose cuted neither do wo believe in of fering excuses for those accused f suoha horrible crime In the face of such circumstances the strong evidence Against all the parties indicted in the open day light of such an open straight unbosoming of the entire that led to such a coldblooded murder we can see no reason for any person further protesting against the offorts of the Common wealth and the brothers of th h murdered man unless they indorse the deed It is unfortunate fo the parties who instigated tho plot unfortunate for the ones who exe cuted it and unfortunate for the giant intellectual Goebel aijd the State of Kentucky but the deed was done and human sympathy party pride nor any other relation except the strongest ties of uatun should outweigh or seek to out wit legal justice Murder cannot be condonedneither can prosecution be conducted

to Mr W L Heath of that city Mr Heath is one of Corbins best citizens and has been identified with the interest of that town for several years He is now 61 years of age and an manrHe a man of good physique and does not show any disabilities by reason of his long compaign in the interest of the Confederacy which ridhe now takes pleasure in relating to his friends There have been many stories circulated concerning capture of President Jeff Da 3vie some say that he was take with three hundred others some have asserted that he was captur ed iu a womans garb but Mr Heath lays bare these erroneous stories by giving a minute detail nof the capture as he was one of the Presidents body guards Mr Heath Company B 4th lBKentucky Infantry 0 S A and was with it in all of its hardest en gagements His recital of the many narrow escapes desperate battles and captures is highly interesting and shows him to have been a true soldier brave and fear principlestwas outwittedd captors three of those e and joined his command Once he was placed in Camp Douglas and on another oooassion his captors landed him in Camp Chase His stay in prison was of short dura lion only a few months when he was exohanged After his parole in Camp Chase he went South and joined his command m North Caro lina they having been mounted at that time A part of the command was detailed as an escort for President Davis and Cabinet and Mr Heath was one of the escorts This Mrdand Cabinet until Wasning ton Georgia had been reached at which place forty select men were picked from the detachment and out of the forty thus selected ten conrtinue the journey Omitting e details of a brief period of the journey it was only three or four days until President Davis was captured with only six of the es corts with him at that time Mr Heath was one of the six but b hill shrewdness ha outwitted his ceptora and made his escape while beiing conducted to the prison sta tion in forth Georgia Substan ti tlly the above story of the capture was published in the Courir Jonrna in June 1900 as related by Sangent Baker who had com mand of the escorts at that tune Throrgh all the hardest fought battJos Mr Heath came out with out any serious wounds and enjoys jood health now and while he is living in one of the strongest Re publican counties in the State he still clings to the principles that actuated him in the conflicts of long ago and votes it straight Democratic every time Notwithstanding that he is on the minor ity side in his section still he has the goodwill and friendshipof tbseon the other
