doubt ful whether they will ever become strictly popular Great efforts have been made to Introduce them before but strangely enough whereas no travagances are too great for us to adopt in the matter of bats and gowns we hasten very slowly when it comes to any radical change in gloves and shoes In Paris the fancy for red slices and stockings seems just now to show signs of becoming a vogue but what Paris may do in the matter of footwear is by no means always advisa ble for us With a black robe dinter ieur red shoes are piquant and charm ing no doubt but out of doors they look bizarre and bring the feet too much into prominence But there are some of the prattlest shoes in the soft shades of satin and are designed to wear with the euening dresses they are embroidered iu silks to match the gowns and fur these one can have nothing but praise Naturally the amount of ipatient labor they represent when carried out by hand makes them a rather expensive item which would be beyond the means of many of us AN UNLUCKY YEAR It something terrible doesnt hap pen to the human race before the end of this year Im no true prophet said the snperstitiots man Fate has written it down just as plain as day and theres no way dodging it In the first place the year 1903 con tains a mighty bad combination of figures It you take them separately and add tbem up you will find that the result will be thirteen no matter which way you work it out All right You may laugh at me as far as ihave gone but wait until I produce some more facts In the year 1003 there are three days in which the thirteenths of the month fall on Fri day Tbe first was February 13 the next was March 13 and tbe last will be November 13 Take a look at the calendar and find on bow many previous years had this many

doubt the readers of your paper 1w1l1 be surprised to hear from an old friend who has been silent for some time I will say at the beginning that I am the only one of the family left to tell the story While looking over one of your late papers I saw the pictures of a number of old friends when I rec ognized that of John Eubank most especially he being one of the first men that I can remember if not the first He was our nearest neighbor when my father died and was always aI a personal friend I was indeed glad to snow that he was still among the living Reading the Adair County News brings back

acres in the Medicine River in Barber county Kansas it is about the center of the State east and west and on the southern boundary My occupa tion has been for the last fifteen years farming and feeding cattle and hogs This country is fine for farming and stock raising A great many cattle and hogs are fed for the market The country is mostly prairie there being some timber on the river and orchards tbat have been planted The climate is pleasant ond It is also one of the healthiest countries I have ever seen I would like very much to come to Kentucky and visit my old friends but had much

of a conspiracy if published statements can be relied on aud while the guilty parties have not yet been arrested Governor Beck ham was prompt to give such aid as is within his power to secure their

crime is innocent tha every witness who gives damagin- testimony is a liar and that ever jury is perjured James Howard Caleb Powers and Youtsey have all been declared innocent and their trials a mock of justice by that class of papers that seek to keep up prejudice and to hold the Republican party together by reason of keeping alive the animosity that prevailed in one of the mos turbulant periods
