Marcus Banna I WAKXJNO AGAINST SMALLPOX To Tbe People or Kentucky It Is the duty of this Board to warn you of the danger of a widespread epl ilernic of smallpox Although stamp ed out over and over again it has been almost constantly imported from oth er States where less care was observed and because so many of our more norant people are unprotected by vaccination and so many fiscal courts have failed to provide hospitals for the proper isolation and management of first cases the disease now exists In many widely separted comities and everywhere shows a disposition to break over control and assume an epi demic form- Business people afflicted families and other for obvious reasons often attempt to make the impression that the disease is so mild as to be unim portant but it is due that the public should know that this is not true It is gradually growing more severe too and deaths from it are often concealed or attributed to other causes It should be known also that there are no such diseases as Elephant Itch African Itchor Cuban Itch and that ery case investigated by this Board In the past five years which had been agnosed by ignorant physicians and people was found to be genuine small pox In Germany and other countries where vaccination is universal smallpox is practically unknown If every citizen of Kentucky at once obeyed the plain letter of the law and bad himself and every one for whom he is responsible vaccinated this loathsome disease which has entailed so much expense on our taxpayers and so much loss and derangement of business would permanently disappear from our borders within the next six weeksVaccination properly done with fresh virus is a perfect protection against smallpox and is entirely free from danger Persons thoroughly vaccinated will not take the disease In any form even when directly exposed to it It is an Important operation as imperfect vaccination will only give a false sense of security The virus should always be inserted at not less three points on the well cleaned arm about an inch and a half apart and the physicians hand should be clean when he begins the work The three points of Insertion causes less soreness and gives far greater protection Humanized virus is preferable Where itI can be obtainedfrom healthy children and younir people beiugmore certain to take causing less local and constitu tional disturbance and giving more permanent protection The crusade against the use of this virus has been almost entirely commercial and the time has come for It to end Physi cians competent to do vaccination know the healthy families and chil dren in their practice and should have no difficulty in obtaining ample supplies if vaccination is kept up regularly as should be done The bovine vi rus on the market is pure but it soon becomes inert unless kept cool and ex cept for Its convenience and for start ing a supply has no advantages As a large element of our population white and black will delay or evade vaccination fiscal courts and county health oflicials are urged to provide eruptive hospitals where those afflict ed frith the disease may be humanely cared for with safety to tbeicommnnl ty and with the least possible inter ference with business The antiqua ted method of quarantining an entire family because one of its members has smallpox is almost inhuman besides being the worst formoffalse economy and yet the parsimony of many of our fiscal courts has left their health au thorities no other alternative Reader will you have yourself and everyone dependent on you vaccinated at once and urge the same measure upon your neighbors Byforder of the Board- J N McCORMACK M D Secretary State Board of Health Wm Jennings Bryan doesnt love Grover Cleveland and he makes it a point to keep his

appropriated 93000 toward the fund for a Kentucky building and ex hibit of the States resources and products at the Worlds Fair InSt Louis next year This action was taken unanimously at the meeting of the body In Louisvillle on February 3rd A delegation from the Kentucky Ex hibit Association appeared before the court and explained the objects of the organization When one of the mag istrates asked how much would be pected of the body it was stated that in the opinion of the delegation 82 000 would be little enough A mem ber of the Court Immediately moved an appropriation of 3000 and without argument this sum was voted On the same day the Fiscal Court of Car roll county appropriated 8200 for the same purpose The matter of asking other Fiscal Courts to take a similar step is now under consideration by a number of auxiliaries of the Kentucky Exhibit Association In different parts of the State The plan of raising a part of the 100000 fund in this man ner was first suggested to President A Y Ford of the Association by sever al county judges and wherever the proposition has been made It has met hearty endorsement In several coun ties the matter will be brought up at the next meeting of their fiscal courts It has been the hope of the Exhibit Association to secure from each coun ty in the State a sum about equal to what that county would have had to pay had the Legislature made an appropriation of 8100000 This amount in every instance would come it is ex pected from the fiscal court approprI- ation added to the subscriptions ra ceivedlfrom the corporations and oth er

at the Missionary Society Doubtless as she entered the room there went up from every heart a silent prayer of thanks for there were vacant chairs and sad hearts caused by the rueful hand of death only a short time be reIMrs Walton was made President and she soon won the hearts of all the members She was our leader We looked to her for guidance But now she has gone and the dark cloud hangs heavy above us We sometimes feel as it were that we must stand still as we cannot see our way She wa a zealous member of the church and delighted in all Its ordinances She taught the infant class In Sunday school and the children all loved her She was a wife and mother with all the love tenderness and devotion these words express She was an inspiration to all who met her and made a host of friends As a friendwords fail In attempting to tell the value of such friendship She was loyal and true generous to a fault She lad that uplifting reverence for higher things and made one want to forget self and try to live for a nobler purpose Ahl the happy hours spent with her will be an oasis to which memory will often turn and lovingly linger as we journey along the rugged paths of life On Tuesday Jan 20 as the sad telligence of her sudden death was echoed through the town there was not a heart but went out in in heart felt sympathy to the bereaved husband and tender little ones one of whom will never know a mothers love May the dear Savior throw around them all his loving arms and may he guide the little feetand bring them to womanhood to be a comfort to their father and an honor to the memory of their mother God who cannot err has seen fit to bring this trial upon us Therefore itResolvedThat without question Ing why we bow in meek submissio- nResolvedThat we ever cherish the memory of our

who for the past twentyyears had operated Illicit distilleries along the border lines of Hart and Metcalfe counties from Three Springs to Crail Hope died of a complication of phthisic and dropsey at the home of his sister Mrs The Bybee In Horse Cave last Thurs day bight and was buried Friday tin the family burylngground on the Geo Ross farm near Park From his early manhood Lodgens career had been one of violence and since 188the had at times openly defied the law at others he had been forced to conceal himself for months at a time until the storm of indignation caused by his acts Would blow over and make It safe for him to again appear in had often boasted of his reputation as a slayer of men and some of his followers all men of violence are followed and befriended by others who are afraid of themcredit- ed him with the killing of as many as ten or twelve but If he ever killed more than one he was never arrested for it In May 1883 Lodgen killed John Kinser in his Lodgens distillery at Bearwallow in this county That was before Lodgen had become a mopn shiner and at the time he was possessed of jnepfrJiferty His distiller I was located on one side of the big pond at Bearwallow and was in operation at the time a government storekeeper named McSuear being In charge of the operations John Kinser was Lodgens distiller and the two bad hada misunderstanding in a settlement Kinser claimed Lodgen owed him a balance of 8250 while Lodgen maintained that he was due him onlyj ninety cents Kinser while drunk went to the distillery and demanded the 8250 be claimed was due him at the same time cursing Lodgen and swearing he would have the money or Lodgens blood before he left Lodgen went to the home of Dr C R Wilson near by where he borrowed a shotgun to kill a squirrel for his mother so he said Returning to the stlllhouse he informed Kinser that he was now on equal footing with him and if he wanted to curse him anymore to do so Kinser apologized but kept hanging around mouthing about the 8250 and while the two men were alone in the stlllhouse Lodgen shot at Kinser first with a pistol and then picked up a shotgun and tired One load entered Kinsers groin the other his wrist and hand By God aint I a daisy exclaimed Lodgen as be saw the poor fellow fall and stepped back and set his gun down Kinser died almost immedi atelyLodgen was tried here twice for the Ikilling the first jury standing eleven for acquittal and one Mr Kiah Hill for conviction On the second trial he was acquitted and Mr W N Locke was the foreman of the jury Lodgen was defended by Major W H Botts and Porter v McQuown while Boles Duff were employed by the father of Kinser to assist Commonwealths Attorney S M Payton in the pros cu tionShortly after the killing of Kinser Lodgen abandoned the registered dis distillery and went to moonshIning- and until thoday of his death was either actively engaged in violting the internal revenue laws or was serving a sentence in jasl at Louisville for hav ing done so About five months ago he was ar rested by a Deputy Sheriff from Green county as he walked out of the Jefferson county jail where he had just fin ished a long sentence for Illicit distilling He was indicted in Green county for shooting a member of a Sheriffs possee named Wade several years ago but the Green county authorities had never been able to arrest him before In the Greensburg jail Lodgen fell a victim to phthisic and dropsey and his condition become such that the physicians of that place pronounced his case hopeless and he was permitted to go to the home of his sister at Horse Cave to die Lodeen was never able to leave his bed after he arrived in Horse Cave and grew Tjorse rapidly until he died In appearance Lodgen was a typical moonshiner being over six feet tall square shouldered rawboned witht keen blue eyes and a thin straggling light brown mustache Added to this a heavy squarecut firmlyset jaw that gave him a bulldog appearance and the mountain moonshiner was complete A week or sobefore his death Lodg en claimed to have professed religion and announced that he bad forgiven his enemies Glasgow Times About twentyfive years ago Ed

Home Journal As its thousands of readers know the farmers Home Journal does not often express its preferences or advise its friends and patrons in contests for political offices but there are times when we deem it to be in our special province to spec a plain word where the interests o the farming classes of Kentucky are specially concerned and in this connection we desire to ex press our heartiest indorsement of the candidacy of Mr Hubert Vree land of Jefferson county for the Democratic nomination for Com missioner o f Agriculture Labor and statistics The State Primary will be held on May 9th in every county in Kentucky and every Democrat will doubtless feel it his duty to go to the polls and there express his preferences in the vari ous contests for State offices As for the other State offices the Farmers Home Journal has no preferences to express believing that it should have an eye only to that which is of direct concern to the farming classes Mr Vreelaud was formerly a representative of the Farmers Home Journal and for the past three years has been the assistant Commissioner of Ag riculture receiving the appointment from Commissioner 1 B Nail on account of his special fitness for the duties His service as assistant has familiarized him with all the duties of the office and in fact has given him a knowl edge of the conduct of its affairs that a new man could not acquire until after a year or two of his term had expired Mr Vreeland has all his life been a steadfast Democrat always supporting actively the regular nominees of his party He has already receiv ed the indorsement of thousands of the most representative farmers in Kentucky and it affords us a real pleasure to be able to recommend to our readers and friends such an eminently qualified and estimable candidate as Mr Vresland WH speak for him because we know him We speak for him because we know the requirements of the office which he seeks The Chairman of the Republican State Committee for Alabama has declared in an interview that he is in favor of Mark Hanna for the Republican nomination in 1904 This Alabama Republican declares that the Republicans cf the South known as the lily whites are prepared to make an organized fight upon Mr Roosevelt and that they have chosen Mark Hanua as their candidate In spite of the disclaimers made by Mr Hanna a great many people have believed that he has privately encouraged the cultivation of the Hanna boom and there are many indications that after all Mr Roosevelt will not have a walkaway in the Re publican National Convention Claud OBrien condemned to die now in the Lexington jail has a friend in the person of his moth er who lives at Nashville Last week she sent him six files with which to cut his way through the bars The

The Wood Drug Co of Spring field Kyj Is in trouble Alexander Sutton has filed Bait against it for l0i00O alleging that his wife was given strychnine for morphine l For the benefit of the uninformed we will state that Mr Roberts of Utah was never in Congress consequently could not have been turned out Congress refused to allow him to be sworn into office though he was elected bJ the pop ular vote of his district and his credentials were not questioned He was a confessed Polygamist a believer in the teachings of his church with courage to practice what he taught Mn Smoot is al so a Mormon He is one of the high officials of a Polygamous bodythe same as Mr Roberts yet hd lacks the courage to prac tice what he indorses in others and which has his moral support In this sense he is a Polygamist he is a party to it a backer an in dorser and as unfit to fill a seat in the Senate a s Mr Roberts was for Congress In the face of all 1this as in the Roberts case we be lieve that he is entitled to be sworn into office since he has been elected but after giving him and the people of Utah justrecognition in their elective franchise then it would be the duty of the body in which he becomes a member to prefer charges and expell him by reason of his connection and prop agation of Polygamous doctrines The law holds an abetor of mur der or thievery or any other crime perpetratorunderstood in this mutter We believe it was as much the duty of Congress to have admitted Mr Roberts as Mr Boreing or any oth er member because his election was not in question We believe the same is due Mr Smoot and when be becomes a member of the bpdy then prefer charges In the Roberts case it was not so We willwatch this one Evidently we are invited to participate in a dis cussion of this matter and the con flicts of 1899 and 1900 but stearing o n row n bark we re fuse drop into the channel to revive prejudice and resurrect the animosity that has or is pass ing off in this part of the State Gen Basil Dukes refusal to ac cept a Federal Judgeship appoint ment from the President has stir red the Republicans about the Capital A Washington corres pondent says It is impossible to explain the flat statement in connection with the tender of the place to Basil Duke This offer is not taken seriously in Washington except by the Republicans who have been urging Kentucky candidates They do not like the report that the place they are trying to get has been refused by a Democrat There are some who look upon the offer as an Indian gift but this does not affect the general truth that the proposition was made to Gen Duke and refus ed by him which facts make the Republicans exceedingly uncom fortahle We can truthfully say that such offers would be accepted in this town in a twinkling of an eiOThe German Government has ignored the agreement made through Count Quadt with Minister Bowen regarding the Venezuelan settle ment insist on a cash payment of 350000 or a lien for the amount on the custom receipts of the Ven ecuelan ports Minister Bowen has informed the German Foreign Offica through Baron Sternberg that he refused to yield the re ceipts of any port prior to The Hagues decision because such ac tion would be preferential treat ment As to the cash payment Mr Bowen declared his willing ness to pay the sum asked on the signing ot the protocol if Germany sail afford to make a public confession that it does not stand by agreements signed by its duly ac credited diplomats Great Brit ain and Italy have renounced any responsibility for Germanys ac tion and expressed their regret The judgment of the Marion Circuit Court in the long and short haul cases against the Louis villo and Nashville Railroad Com pany was reversed by the Court of Appeals Judges Hobson Settle and Nunn
