a eiuall country hotel They were sitting ou the porch swapping lies when a farmer drove up None of you fellers is a preacher I suppose ho asked None of them was The far mer continued You see my hired mine dead The reglar ministers out of town poorfelsqrdoinsof any kind so I thought as boom iTayh one of you might ji help me out It finally was decided that the drummer for windmills should say something fr the late lament ed The landltrd took them out in his wagon that afternoon A cheap chairscoffinSeveral farmers were around The nPfiwindmill pitched a tune for us Then he said tiM friends death is sad But sad as itis it must come to all Hardly was our friend here pre pared for death when along cam anhe took to his bed He ha IJboon carrying water for the et io k from a long ways off The

windmill man led off with the doxology and bad the thing done in three minutes UP TODATE FARMING In the northern part of Perris valley lies a large level tract of land whore the Kerr brothers Charles and Tom are practicing their upto date methods of farming only raising grain instead of grass Here any day may be seen a huge engine devouring about seven barrels of oil every twelve hours dragging a combined harvester through eighty to one hundred acres of gram each day and leaving a trail of grain sacks all threshed sacked and ready for shipment To do this but seven men are required where 18 to 21 are used in the stationary outfits and about fifty head of horses on each combined harvester saving about fifty percent on tbecost of horses The dicated horse power of Old Barney id 125 but the actual working horsepower is about 50 When the harvest season is over Oui Bates Is hitched up to 96 di e plows and later in the season niter tbe Talus Lave come to 66 gang plows plowing a strip of mud 41 feet width and covering about 200 acres or more per day often times the plowing is done ny night as well as day But the striking feature of this method of farming lies in the economy with which it is done It is satd that one acre of lund cm be put in grain with the discs exclusive of seed tor 7 cents with the plowa fur 10 cents and can harvested for 60 cents and when work stops no hungry horses are- eft to eat their heads oil The Kerr brothers have about 4500 s in grain near Perris this year under the management of Tom Kerr while Charles Kerr is superintending some acres at Merced Their wheat in Perris valley is running from to 10 sacks per acre and from 4500 aCres some 40000 sacks art expectedI When this is figured at tbe present price of grain It louks like a small tune might be realized from a single crop Perris Progress Cal BOSSES SHOD JJY GIRL At the little village of Pilot Oak Ky lives tbe only woman blacksmith perhaps in the South Her name Is MibSClara Medlin und she

Constitution commends the apparent disposition of the democrats in congress those in the south in partic ular for acting with becoming delib eration before taking position upon the Panama situation It is better al ways in a matter of such grave nation + al Importance as our relation to Panama are than to go off halfcocked and do things that either must afterward be undone or followed to certain and humiliating defeat tln consideration of this weighty affair it shall be shown beyond doubt that President Roosevelt and his cab inent have fomented and Illegally produced the present status on the isth mus that finding will be a tremendous point against trusting them longer in their present condition and power But when it comes to dealing with and independent new nation estab lished for reasons and on principles that no rational democrat can deny to any peoples decision the democrats of the United States cannot afford to abandon those principles and our in ternallonal obligations In order to raise a hot pursuit of a partisan fox The action passing in Panama af fects some of the supremest rights and gravesffuture interest of the Ameri can people And it is to the temper of the people and not to the multllatl ot a map that tbe democratic leaders must look for signals of their plan of campaign When they do that they will find that people of all parties and classes want a free Panama and an American isthmian canaland will have them Atlanta Constitution STATEHOOD FOR OKLAHOMA Single or double statehood Is always a burning issue in fire territories ioe Oklahoma and Indian Territory The Washington politicians of both parties have from the beginning favored single statehood for both while la the terri tories themselves the preponded sen timent in each has been for double statehood The best interest of both seems to lie logically and strongly in that direction Oklahoma has over fourhundred thousand people ten times more than Nevada while the Indian Territory has nearly sixhundred thousand or fifteen times the Nevada population It seems at first blush that the peo ple of the two territories ought lobe homogenous aud contented as citizens of the same state but they are not themselves of that mind The Oklahomans are independent pioneers who invaded their land under Captain Payne and forced the government to divide the territory and give them a territorial autonmy and a delegate in congress Indian Territory is owned by the Five Nations of Indians white men are there by sufferance and such as own land are squaw me the bus bands of Indian women They know nothing by study and experience of any other than tribal governments and Inalan customs but there are plenty of white men there who would run a state government all right would have been a st teI ten years ago had it not been for Gro ver Cleveland who swore with a great big D that he would never put his fish line autograph to a bill that would put two more silver lunatics iu the Unit ed States senate Thatobjection be log co longer valid Oklahoma at least deserves speedy statehood =Atlanta Constitution THE NEW REPUBLIC Panama re jolted last week and se ceded from the union with the Repub llcof Colombia declaring independ enceand the de facto government now in control has declared itself the Republic of Panama and utbermore has been officially recognized by the United States The reasons for revolt as given waS on account of the failure of thetPanama canal treaty with this country which was a great disappointment the latter people who desired this country to build the canal through the Isthmus Thisrevolution meansilght ing already Colombia has 7000 men on the march towards Panama with toe expectation of whipping her back into the union but Panama says she Is ready aid widingto tight and this means a clash between the two when they meet It is said the powerful Panama canal Lobby is back of all this devilment and would like to the aVnoxVl of Panama They want to seal thelrrtghtsinthepropotfedcanal Ebsfi e nf f1lt1tnlons t SENTENCE SERSIOAS There is no Godliness without man linessSelflove is not the same as sell re spectThat cannot be manly which is not moral The Bible promises no loaves to the who would be a leader must go is always most dirty at the work cannot be done with dir ty tools The man without reverence cannot win respect Only an enemy will judge a than by his failures A mans virture dues not depend on his vocabulary The Father of mercies likes to see mercy in his children A demonstration of religion is bet ter than any definition There is nothing more sllpery than a smooth smile There is no pedestal that suits the devil better than a pulpit There are many churches in which the preacher is only a gas fixture You cannot glean in the fields of sin without picking up the burrs of sorrow Leading one man may be a much greater thing than leading a meeting- It takes a man a long time to real ize that God is not waiting for his ad man

didate for Appellate Judge It is true that ibis rather early for such 2aaupjin3ca6at but feeling so sure that future events willwarrant onr position in this matter we have no hesitancy in prsenting the name of one of our townsmen far this high and honorable position In doing ths we have no appolo jjifis to offer i no excuse tq give and no defects to cover in the standing and ability of the gentleman whom the people of thip part of Kentucky would delight to honor When the time comes for announcmeHts the name of Hon J F Montgomery of this town will appear aa the choice of this section of the country What we might say possibly would be of small moment in introducing Mr Montgomery to the Democrats of this district since he is so well and favorably known but a few words will not be out of order Mr Montgomery is what we style a selfmade mana man who blaz ed o it his own path by the dent of his own determination and whose abilities are known and ap predated throughout the bounds of his acquaintance At tho age of 19 he was admitted to the bar by a Bpaoial act of the Legislature and the following year he graduated from the Lexington Law School Starting early in life with a thorough training and a continuous Practice of 25 years we present k well and thorougly qualified point of legal knowledge In is work he is untiring and a deep thinker a man who probes to the bottom of every legal proposition intrusted to Irs care In 1890 hf was chosen as a member of the Constitutional Convention and in that assemblage of able luen hie mind directed many of the im portant paragraphs that make our organic laws Ae a Democrat LR has been one of tie faithful but has never pressel himself on hie partywilling to aid his political associates without the hope of re ward or this Iou of opponents This district could not select a better man nor the Democrats be stow a favor more righteously than r to give Mr Montgomery the nom nation and election lu conclus ion we desire to say that if we ar L amiss in advancing tho above w trust that Mr Montgomery wil overlook our anxiety in presenting his name so early for ve feel that we are Tvoicing the sentiment of the Democrats

arms of the next state Sen ate Politically speaking John Montgomery is one of the old blue hens chickens and has sacrificed both his time and substance in the interest of democracy Personal ly no cleverer gentleman lives Mr Montgomery has friends all over the State who will rally to him at the time that will best serve interestWe indorse the above from the Glasgow Times There is no truer democrat in the State than Mr Montgomery He has been a worker in the ranks since before he breached his majority and for his serviceand steadfastness to the principles of democra cy he has not up to this time received recognition The office of sargentatarmes could not be giv en to a gentleman who would fill the duties more correctly Nine Senators have already pledged him their support and we hope to hear of him getting the Caucus nomi nation Dr Carter Helm Jones the not ed Baptist minister of Louisville has evidently incurred the dis pleasure of a fiend as seven at tempts were made in

neither Hunter Edwards nor White has received the certificate of election to Congress from the Eleventh district White claims that hq has been legally elected though he has fewer votes than either of
