annexed the whole Islande It is now announced that Mr J Pierpont Morgan representing the American Tobacco Company has purchased the most valuable tobacco lands in however was merely one of the Incidentals Mr Morgans visit Railroad construction in the Pearl of the Antilles has been booming for some time Up to date Canadian enterprise represented by Sir John Van Horne has been paramount in the work of projection When it was found that a good many more millions were needed to complete the principal transportation lines Mr J Pierpont Morgans attention was called to the fact and very naturally he became interested With Mr Morgan to become interested means to act Consequently he proceeded to Havana to look over the ground On his arrival at the Cuban Metropolis it was variously announced on unimpeacha ble authority that his purpose was Jo buy up all the transportation lines on the island to float the Cuban loan of 935000000 to purchase the combined tobacco interests to syndicate the sugar syndicates still retaining up his sleeve several other plots of equal magnitude In the Interim theinscru table manipulator of millions took over the former residence of a Spanish grandee indulged in the delights of cocoanut milk and played soltalre Then Mr Morgan having arranged the destinies of Cuba to the satisfaction of the tobacco trust and tbe railroad trust took the first train for Washington where the necessity of an session of congress was duly pressed upon President Roosevelt and it Isjnow announced that Unofficially the fact no longer is concealed that the visit of the great Wall street king nd his careful serious presentation of the situation In Cuba and in finan clal circles during his house conference with the president yesterday has had tbe deciding influence upon thee chief executives opinion A special session of Congress will be called in the early fall Great are Mr Morgans possessions and they embrace Cuba the United States government

for Presidential appointments and his zeal in this line seems not to have been affronting to the Chief Executive Mt Smoot is a very influential man in the Mormon Chuicb and has done a great deal in inducing other men to practice polygamy but while he does not act ually have but one wife himself he is in the full fellowship of the Administration establishment and the Senate Since Our generous

d f GAMBLENG AMONG GIRLS There is nothing of the spirit of sensational indictment in wnat Mrs Julia Ward Howe has to SlY on the subject ofgambling among fashionable girls It Is calm and dispassionate and founded as seems clear on observa tions which Mrs Howes social position enables her to make for herself That she has abundant opportunity for seeing the extent to which play mayI be carried every one knows and this of course lends weight to what she says and secures attention from a class which would treat with indifference such a statement from an outsider Very humanly and very sweetly does Mrs Howe base her plea for a change- on the assumption that few persons really are willing to acquire cruel gains through anothers losses When they do this Mrs Howe seems to imply very diplomatically It Is thorough thoughtlessness and all that such offenders against tho law of being kind need is to realaze the offense there Is With just a few realizations of this generous faith public opinion will do the rest Such gentle and wise reflections as those in which Mrs Howe indulges recognizing both sides and all sides of the question are more efficacious in the end It seeks than onslaughts as those of Colonel WattersonBoston Transcript THE BEST FARMER Who Is he any way Where is heeast west nsrth or south The best farmer is the man who does all his work faithfully and upon honor He puts thought

to the statutes Touch ing the matter of Gov Beokhams eligibility to reelection the court holds that the committee had no right to raise such a question it being a matter for the legislature The January term of the Court of Appeals which closed last Wed nesday was a recordbreaking ses sion and 325 appeals were dispos ed of during the term The court overruled the motion of William McCarty the

Commissioner of Agriculture who for thirty years has been ons of the foremost agricul turists in the State and who is conce ded to be one of the most thoroughly posted men as to farming interests in Kentucky has announced t o his friends that at the expiration of his present term of office he will return to his old home to live Under the Con stitution he is not eligible for reelec Lion and will return to private life Col Nail has organized more farmers institutes than any other Commissioner the State ever had and he has been one of the leaders in the good roads movement Col Nall in an interview last week said be was taking no active part in the selection of his successor as that was a duty which devolved upon the Democratic farmers oj the State but when asked for his opinion on the race he said he personally was going to vote for Hubert Vreeland because he believed him to be not only the best qualified but by far a more aggressive man than the others and by reason of his experience as assistant iujcbarge of the office would not have to con sume his time learning the routine and would be in a better position next winter to secure favorable legislation for the farmer such as good roads and many other things that are needed with all of which he is thoroughly con versant Col Nail said that from what he could hear from the farmers and others with whom he camejn con tact there was not the slightest doubt in his mind about the nomination of Mr Vreeland by one of the largest majorities that would be received in any of the races for State offices The primary has been sustained by the Court of Appeals so let all Democrats prepare for May ting CAMPEELLSVILLE The Taylor Circuit Court will convene on Monday April 6th It is fair to suppose that a number of

degree murder I was so uneasy about the matter that I went to an Irish friend of mine and deliberately planned to preventcon viction in either degree The friend of mine was a Juryman and his chances of getting on the jury in the murder case were very good ao I urged hl to stick until the last for a verdict of manslaughter He said be would and I knew that he would keep hi promise The panel was exhausted and my friend Pat was one of the twelve men in whose hands rested tbe fate of my client I was positive that he would not bang The trial was an interests ing one and the jury retired site listening to the Judges charge Sev en hours passed before they returned PtThe poll of the Jury showed that the man was guilty of manslaughter and after the jurymen were discharged I walked up to Pat and said Pat you saved the day Jjb was a great piece of work for you How did you manage tc bring the other eleven around to your way of thinking Ob I had the devils own time of doin it This on the
