surest way to retain your bus bauds love is to make home happy Pull up your shades and let Gods sun shine into your homes and into your hearts If you are not your husbands equal study and improve your mind until you can converse with him on youtofar more tban It you spend jour whole life toiling and drudging in the kitchen until there isnt cneerfullness enough about you to even smile at his coming I know it is said tbe surest way of reaching a mans affections is by the way of his stomach but I be lieve that plain living and high think ing are better tban high living and low thinking Theres a why for every wherefore and tbe why for family jars consists in not knowing how to manage Now we have got the best husband in tbe 1world and Ill wager ten to one that if any other woman undertook to draw the matrimonial reins they wouldo drive forty rods before he would ktek over the traces smash up the whiffletrees and raise Ned in general They dont understand the science of man agement You must lead not drive The only way is to look humble and be desperately cunning bait them with submission then throw the noose over their will walk round the bump of antagonism and pat the back of selfcon eit It is a great mistaKe to contend with the lords of creation what can1t be had by force must be won by stratagem Make a silken rein of love and lead them whew you will but under no consideration must you attempt to drive or they will at once canter off to the farthest limit of the matrimo nial pasture Then let us have homes in which there shall be no searching blasts of passion no polar storms of coldness and hate homes refined by books and gladdened by song homey in which wife and mother shall not loose all her attracting charms by unremitting toil and drudgery nor the husband and

now going over tbe state is Mr Henry- M Boswortb whose picture appears at the head of this article He is not ly a companionable gentleman but a Democrat whom the people of Kentucky should love to honor Mr Bos worth is before the Democratic primary May 0 1903 asking that be be nom mated for the office of State Treasurer That he is making friends where ever he goes there can be no doubt He was in Adair county a few days ago his first visit forming tbe quaintance of a number of Democrats allot whom were very favorably im pressed with the manner in which he is conducting his canvass In this write up we deem it not out of place to glue a short history of Mr Bosworth and his fidelity to the Democratic party He is a resident of Fayette county and has always been a worker with the boys in the trenches He was sheriff of his county when Governor Goebel was assassinated The shock to him was like a thunderbolt from a cloudless sky He was stricken by the loss of our leader and then with a termination born of revenge for the vilest of all crimes he swore that he would do all in his power v track down the assassin of the dead In those days to be an active ag gressive Democrat around Frankfort was to be in constant peril of assassi A NEAT PROGRAM Now that the Dedication Ceremo nies of the Louisiana Purchase Expo sition the Worlds Fair are so close at hand the public is commencing

not and when Caleb Powers and Davis had eluded the authorities at Frankfort and were fleeing to the mountain fast nesses Bosworth at the head of his deputies marched into the car and in what seemed the face of certain death dragged out Powers and Davis and landed them in the Fayette County jail A shout of approval and joy went up all over the Statefor this man had arrested tbe instigator of the darkest and most damnable plot in tbe history of tbe world Then he was offered fit teen hundred dollars reward by Goe bels brothers like a true Kentuckian he refused it and said I only regret I havenot done more to avenge the cowardly assassinator of my friend and the friend of the Great Common Pea ple Men especially the brave men of Kentucky cannot and do not wis to forget such deedsdeeds that make men heroes Mr Boswortb is a man of education He is a cultivated gentleman and has a heart that beats tenderly toward all He asks only that his claims be consid ered on his record as a Democrat an- a man If true merit unquestioned ability and unswerving loyaltyto Democratic principles count for any thing then Henry M Bosworth should receive an overwhelming majority at the prIma ry

Treasurer We are authorized to announce that Henry Boswortb of Fayette county a candidate for State Treasurer subject to the action of the Democratic primiri May New and decidedly important testimony relative to the Goebel murder conspiracy was adduced in the trial of Jim Howard at Frank fort when Frank Cecil a former fugitive took the witness stand Cecil declared that Caleb Power tried to hire him to kill Goebel saying that it had been arranged for a mountain man to d j the kiting but he feared the man would not arrive Cecil said Powers sent him to W S Taylor who offered to pay him 2500 to kill Goebel and to issue a pardon for the mur der The witness asserted that Taylor upon his refusal to under take the murder made him prom ise never to reveal their conversa tion and threatened his life in the event that such disclosure was made James Stubblefield form erly ot Clay county testified that Jim Howard told him that he killed Goebel and boasted that his friends would protect him from arrest Youtsey and Howard agreed to swap affidavits in the event either one ot them should be arrested charged with the murder of Mr Goebel They were perfectly will ing to swear to anything in order to save their necks Making affi davits and a confession are two different things There is not a doubt in our mind but Youtsey planked down the truth in the present trial of Jim Howard In fact no living man could get upon the witness stand and makeup his story A dispatch irom Madisonville Ky says that Judge Clifton Pratt now the Attorney General of the State has announced for the Re publican nomination for Governor The Republicans of Kentucky who are now in office are general ly opposed to Mr Pratt andwhIle he is conceded to be one of the best men in the party he will be turned down in a convention It is our understanding that Mr Yerkes ExGov Bradley and Mr Craft are bitterly opposed to Mr Pratt The race for the Democratic nominations for State offices is warming up and the finish is al most in sight Every Democrat who has arrived at the age of 21 years will have the right on the 9th day of next month to say by his vote who is his choice to be voted for at the November election What does she care Miss Re becca J Taylor who was discharged from the War Department for criticising the Administration has Shefnow continue her chat about the rotten affairs at Washington The

lyeIFrank Cecil testified for the first time in the Jim Howard case last Wednesday He told all he know about the plot to assassinate Governor Goebel and said W S Tay lor offered him 2500 and a free pardon to do the killing Taylor denies that he made the offer andI says he does not know Cecil cil also states that he was first ap proached by Caleb Powers and the offer of the money was made by him for Taylor Democrats should remember that in a primary election it is a family fight and that harmony should prevail all along the line The canvass should be so conduct ed that when the selections have been made every Democrat can cheerfully enthusiastically walk up to the polls and vote far the nominees At this writing there is no telling who our nominees will be but whoever are selected will be triumphantly elected in November Henry E Youtsey testified in the Howard case last Thursday He stated that Howard came to Frankfort January 30 that he told him of the plan and left him alone in the office of the Secretary State with two rifles and that he heard the shot that killed Goobel He further stated that Howard said all he wanted for doing the mur der was a pardon for turning over old man Baker On the first page of this paper appears a writo up of Mr Hen ry M Bosworth of Fayette coun ty who is a candidate for State Treasurer He is a Democrat ev ery day in the week and wants the supports of his party friends in Adair county Give his candidacy a careful consideration and if you think he is the man for the place vote for him at the May primary Mr Chas E Sugg of Hender son county has a card in today News Mr Sugg is a candidate before the State Democratic pri mary for Superintendent of Public Instructions He is one of the best educators in Kentucky and is a life long Democrat Read his card and give his candidacy due consideration No better man could be selected for the place Mr Hubert Vreeland who is a candidate for Commissioner of Ag riculture before the primary is wellsuited for the place He has been an assistant in the office for several years and knows the needs of the farmers Keep his name before you No better man could be selected for the place While the editor of The News is viewing thousands of cattle upon the plains of Texas eating fresh vegetables and having a good time with former Kentuckians the hir ed man is pushing his business at home and is kept tolerably busy making answer as to when he will return The vote of Adair county will be somewhat divided in the race for Governor There are Hendriok men and Beokham men It is only a family fight and the candi date who is successful an the primary will receive all the Demo cratic votes at the November oleo tionFrank Cecil was Sargentat Arms of Taylors Legislature at London Ky yet Taylor says

unable to find one he went in person to a certain and asked for a safe bridle The dealer replied that he had none Thats strange said the Governor why dont you make one Never saw one and dont know howWellIll show you With that he took off his coat and went to work The result was such a Surprise to the saddler that be did not get over it for a week The hooded bridle now in common use is very but
