that I wrote for the Columbia Spectator while iu the city of Chicago that from accident or design failed to appear in the col umus of that journal The man uscript was lost or destroyed and I will have to rely on my memory to reproduce it One of the most interesting places that I visited in the Windy City was the zoological garden zoological gardens are always in teresting I saw her animals from the greatest to the least The elephant is the largest of all known animals in this day and time and of this specie Chicago has some very fine specimens There is not much to be said about elephants Every body has seen them They are animals remarkably gentle and exceedingly intelligent Next to the elephant in size is the western Buffalo Here I saw some of the largest of these large animals The Buffalos that we see in circus shows are nothing in comparison with them Then we had in this garden sacred bulls sacred cows and sacred calves some milk white and some of different colors Then we had lions tigers polar bears grizzly bears black bears wolves hyenas pan thers catamounts wildcats foxes coons opossums and jackrabbits Thou we had antilopes deer elks harts roes and all these beautiful animals are mentioned in the Scriptures Then again could be seen all kinds of water animals and water fowls Conspicuous among these were the seahorse the seal the beaver down to the muskraT Then we found all kinds of land fowls such as the ostrich wild turkey prairie henthen water fowlsswans geese ducks and birds that inhabit the air like eagles bald eagles American eagles and in fact every thing was to be seen that has ever been seen in the shape of wild animals and tame animals I have failed to mention many that I did see I then visited the Chicago Mus eum and here I saw everything dead that I had seen in the zoological garden living and I saw the skeletons of animals long since extinct at the head of which stands the mastadon an animal that is as much above the elephant in size as the elephant is above the ordi nary hog One can form no con ception of the gigantic size of this wonderful animal This museum was started by the wonderful gift to the city of one million dollars by the merchant prince of Chica go Marshall Field The building covers several acres of ground and is two stories high In it can be found representations of every thing that was ever seen upon the earth under the earth or above the earthfigures in wax or the stuffed skins of animals or howev er fixedup I saw realmummies from Egypt wax figures of all races of Indians from the plains of the great west Indian women mounted upon the stuffed skins of donkeys and ponies Indian chiefs in all their painted and befeather ed lovliness I saw oriental war chariots with oriental stuffed horseslike they appeared thous ands of years agowith the war riors dressed in Knights costume with full coats of armorlIke they appeared on the bloody battle field in the days of chivalry I saw the gods and godesses of South America and New Mexico with all the paraphanalia of idol worship I saw polar bears among the ice and snow of the Artie region hunting their prey in snow one foot deep How they represented ice and deep snow that remained always fresh and always deep I am unable to tell There are to be seen specimens of mineral wealth from every Stato in the union and from every country of the globe consisting of gold sit vor iron coal and copper Also specimens of timber from ever country inhabited by man I saw idol gods made from cedar brought from Ne Mexico whichwore forty feoti high and two feet in diam r eter looking like they were ono thousand years old They had from h ifctom to top faces carved on thom representing all sorts of gods in all sorts of humors mad glad and angry There were seen stuffed skins of zebras the most beautiful animalo that I havo ever seen and almost as large as elephants I saw turtles that were five feet in diameter Of course they were dead but they had all the appearance of having once been living But one of the most interesting things I saw was a map of the United States about fif teen by twentyfive feet laid on the floor and made of stone Each State was represented by a rock taken from its own territory corresponding in shape and size with the State which it represents Carved in these stones are the riv ers lakes creeks and branches The counties the towns with their names appear on the surface and every thing usually seen in large United States maps- I have written enough for one letter and will tell you in my next of the city of Elkhart and ot the many record breakers which I found there U L TAYLOR LYNCH LAW FACTS Beginning in 1885 the Chicago Tribune has kept a detailed record of lynchlaw operrtions in the United States Up to Monday last Delaware was one of vejStates in which mob vengeance had not prevailed over ordinary processes during seventeen and a half years of record Massachu setts New Hampshire Rhode Island and Utah now remain on the honor able list of exemption Mob law is thus shown to be the distinct manifestation of no section The Far West has dealt out a great deal of it to norse and cattle thieves But out of 2516 lynchings recorded by the Tribune up to the end of 1900 the South furnished 2080 Of the victims 1678 were negroes 801 were whites 21 Indians 0 Chinese and 7 Mexicnas Summary death was the penalty mob adminIstered for 114 different offences murder and criminal assault heading the list One man was lynched for slapping a child another for jilting a girl Two paid the penalty for writing insulting letters two for gambling three jfor being unpopular and two for practicIngClvoodooism In 1885 1888 and 1892 horsestealing in the Westled to a notable swelling of the lists of summary executions Even rs late as 1901 the lynchings in the Union were seventeen more than the legal executions the numbers being 135 and 113 respectfully More than fifty women have been victims of lynching parties The Southern States with largest number of recorded lynchings are Mississippi Texas Louisiana Geor gia Alabama and Tennessee Indiana leads in the North with 36 mob mur ders New Jersey had a lynching in 1886 New York had one in 1892 and another in 1896 Connecticut had one in impresion that the practice of lynch law is dying out and that no steps are necessary to restrain it is corrected by the Tribune tables There were ninety lynchings In 1881 and 135 as stated in 1901 Between these years the number shifted back and forth going as high as 235 in 1892 OBITUARY Last Sunday afternoon about 4 oclock the death angel visited the home of Mrs Lula Bumgarner and claimed for its victim her loving husband Bob He was born October 12 1876 and died June 28 1903 making him 27 years old He leaves a wife and child lather mother sisters and brothers with many relatives and a bost of friends He was a victim of consumption and has been confined to his bed for sever al weeks gradually getting worse until the end came All was done that loving hands could do but the disease was too deeply seated for his recovery He never had an enemy He number ed his friends by acpualutaoces Ho leaves a vacant seat that cannot be filled and will be greatly missed A short talk was mad by Bro Will Dudgeon a large crowd of sympatb ic friends were present at the funeral The rerpalns were laid to rest at th family burying ground Heleftbrlght cayn e to meet bitu Jn the bright beyond where sorrow and patting Is no more ills sister BET HANNA ON THE DRIVERSBOX The Constitution sometime ego warned the freshwater element in tbe republican party to keep au eye on Uncle Marcus Hanna Perhaps thoy didso and have been greatly edified by tbe swift and easy way in which he mounted once more the drivers box of the republican tallyho and means to manage the coming presidential cam paign in his own and only familiar fashion Iris all very well that the president is a clever rough rider but Uncle Marcus is sapient enough to see that republican victory next year is not to be gained thestampeding and roundingup methods of the cowboy cult He is prescient enough to know that the road over which be has pilot ed the Republican chariot a couple of times is very narrow and very treach erous at many points He knows that at certain well defined points the driv er has got to go slow and mighty of these things have made him determine to take a third term on the box and the backing he was able to summon shows that all others ambitious of the job have had to go away back and sit down There is Wall street and the buslnes world the trust and monopolies and the la bor voteno mail desiring to be elect ed president on the republican ticket next year could afford to ignore them The president de facto could not com mand them and the necessity of not loosing them has caused the whole presidential faction in the party to lay down to theufull house hand aces front and kings following held by Uncle Marcus Hereafter it will be only the cx tremest politeness that will recognize President Roosevelt as being in the game except as stakeholder He will not write the platform name the vice presidential runLerup or do any other substantive act to win the fight other than Boss Driver Hanna may dictate from time to time It is a rather ludicrous outcome to be sure of the advent and early ad ventures of the stenuous president All those housetop proclamations of being real president and earning aJust fame by an impartial devotion to duty have gone where the wood bine twineth and the whippoor will walls his lonesome lament It will be all Hanna from now until the ides of November next year and the issue will be cleanrcut four years more of Hanna or no more Atlanta Consti tution RECENT STORMSAND

For Snpt of Public Instruction J7 H FUQUAI For Commipsioner of Agriculture HUBERT VREELAND For Clerk of Court of Appeal MORGAN CHINN FOR RAILROAD COMMISSIONER HON C C Me CHORD The Republicans of Kentucky have nominated man for Governor who is so selfish that the fencing about his landed estate is put together so closely that u rabbit cannot set through and too high fora poor man to climb In other words he is an aristocrat a man of wealth who feels that mon ey makes the man but while he may wear the high silk hat and use a goldheaded cane yet he is a fine business man and will make a strong race A new convert to the Republican party a new convert from the cash department ofa large hardware business into the frothy turmoil of political am bition and modern politics relying mainly on the cohesive power of the almighty dollar to crown his ambitions with success and become Governor ot Kentucky Mr Bel knap has successfully engineered his battle up to date in opposition to some of the strongest and most astute politicians within his party He captured the organization in Louisville and converted it to his own use He has the backing pf Sapp and Sapp works for results It is not a question now days as to tho means used but only the ends accomplished We presume that tho aforesaid nominee suits the Republicans in this part of the state that he will make a stron- gtacebutafter the smoke of battle has cleared off when the campaign has passed into the beyond and the result becomes cold facts it will appear that there was another man in the race the nominee of the Democratic party who stands on his own record and achieves great Victories Mr Beckham has never boon duped He successfully met and defeated the high stepper of of Boylo three years ago and will defeat the city aristocrat with an increased majority Democrats are not indifferent to the interest of thier party and State and are satisfied with our ticket and ready for the fray with the common po litical antagonist The naming of a good ticket by the Republi cans does not excite Democratic terror but exhilerates and enthuses hope and determination We accept our ticket and no mur murs are heard and it is pleasing to note that the opposition have fteir first troubles ended An ExDemocrat heads the Re publican ticket in the State and outside of being a new convert it is alleged that he has the cold cash ififr mike the mare go CAMPAIGN COMHITTEF At a meeting of the Demosrati State Central Committee at Frankfort the state nominees were ask by the committee to recommend a state campaign committee

without slanderous insinuations and false statements it is indeed unworthy of notice but there are some whose policy is slander and vilification When newspapers or individuals get into such a condition they soon make for themselves a repu tation unsavory as to loose the confidence and respect of good people Columbia Spectator We indorse the sentiment re garding slander and false statements but discount the courage of any man who lacks the nerve to name the slanderous publication and defend his position We favor an open fair policy and detest an unworthy duplicity which praises to the face and tears to pieces be hind the back The man or the publication whose mission is to drag down the good by slanderous insinuations deserves the naming and exposition of the hidden ven om of the heart The News will defend its honor in the open when openly attacked and make its charges specific when it designs to attack It will not be annony mous in nature but the party will get it direct The Elizabethtown News says there is a dangerous condition ex isting at Indianapolis which as apt to breakout any time into a race war which will make the Evansville riots seem very small The city is full of worthless negroes who do not work and after night it is dangerous for white ladies to go on certain streets and robber ies are growing more and more frequent To avert a catastrophe which they apprehend an organi zation which is known as The Negro business league has been termed to rid the city of what is called the Jim Crow negroes This is going to be a difficult job and the people of that city who have been telling the South how to treat the negro will have an op portunity to put their theories in practice The eyes of the South are upon Indianapolis The condition of the Pope re mains unchanged The patient is able to take nourishment and may live a week or two He is 08 years old There is much spoon lation as to who will become the head of the Catholic Ohuroh at his tenth The Democratic State Central Committee decided last week that Messrs Bell and Hardin of Mer oer county were the nominees for Circuit Judge and Common wealths Attorney in the thirteenth judicial district Messrs Saufley and Owsley gracefully submitted promising their hearty support to the successful contestants The district is in good shape hence the election of Bell and Hardin is a foregone conclusion

Yes the Breeding correspond ent believes there should be a hog law j not for Adair county alone but for the entire State I would be thankful fcr the assistance of Ozark correspondent in securing the passage of this law But alas he threatens dissolution says he is going to Texas where he says sorrow is unknown But the Breeding correspondent believes that when he reaches that State and starts to the field some warm morning and forgets to take his overcoat and a norther comes along and he is frozen stiff ere he could reach home he will wish he was in Kentucky and then when the droutht sets in and he has to go ten miles for a drink of wa ter and when he gets it it appears to be alive with mosquitoes he will doubtless turn and hit the road in high places until he reaches old Kentucky where

toi constitutional jurisdiction In all which he only revamps his bad eminence woo in the Governor Taylor case from Kentucky and proves that bo Is himself as lawless as any mac who was a party to the mob that riot ed in Evansville His disregard of the rights of the judiciary department of the state makes him all the more persona grata with a party and newspapers that be lieve in imperial methods of dealing with all questions that affect the state and nation Be would fit admirably Into the ticket to be presented by that party to the country next year He would be a brilliant example and expo

plain to be missed by any fairsighted citizen We would say as much against the same meth ods If practiced by any other governor in any section of the union Governor Durbin by his treatment of the Evansville case and courts has done more to bring orderly proceed ures and judicial authority Into con tempt than the mob did or could He has overridden both his oath and a co ordinate branch of the
