News WhiCh I eojoy very much I was born and reared In old Kentucky and the coun ty or Adair spent my boyhood days In that dear old State and my mind often wonders back w my old homestead where I spent 30 years or my life cept a few trips trade to the West during that time It has been four years the 10th day or February since I left what I once caned my home I nave traveled a great deal and learned much since I left my old Kentucky home 1 was what you might call a nonunion brick layer but now I am a firstclass union mason I work eight hours a day and recleve tour dollars Jefferson county Is said to be the best for mechanics tn the State or Alabama Birmingham and surrounding towns are growing fast I have had the pleasure of enjoying two visits from my father and mother since I left hume which I enjoyed very much J F Page LET HiM BA YE IT There is a lesson for many mothers In the following story which was told In the New York Times An indulgent mother oJ the Tuxedo colony was traveling on a foal traInI one day In company with her3 year old sonhls nursemaid and a copy orI a souiety magazine which absorbed her attention The son was occupying the seat behind her with his attend ant who attempted every once in while to curb his restless and rebell ious spirit by a gentle denial of his latest whim but each time the moth er noticing only that some argument was in nrogress and without looking up from her book would remark Let him have it The nursemaid thereeoliwould yield to this double demand Finally a strong and rather venomI cus looking wasp flew against the win dow pane and the youthful hunter reached out to grasp it and wailed de jectedly whAn he was once more re strained by the watchful caretaker A aththe fond mother without rais- Ing her eyes exclaimed Oh do let him have it And the howl which tollowed the nurses compliance caused an amused smile to pass around the car GENERAL IIavr Mont suffered 500000 loss from lire Robt Bonnie a prominent distiller of Loulsvllle is

AHEAD I do not believe there has been a time In the past dozen years said representative Rlcharison of Tennessee when the Democratic party was In better condition to enter a campaign or when Its prospeota of winning the presidency appeared brighter Ama jorltyof the white people of the United States are Democrats and want to see Democratic principles triumphJ Democrats are now where they were before the split on the money question There Is no division or lief on the cardinal doctrines of the party The money question Is not an Issue and will not be an issue In nextJ years campaign The unprecedented and wholly unexpected production of gold has cured the ills from which the country was suffering In 1896 and cured them In the way In which the Democratic party said they only could be curedby Increasing the supply of primary money Our present prosper- Ity resulting from an Increased volume of money iii myoplaion is a vindication of the Democratic platforms of 1896 and 190- 0Democrats honestly differed In opinion on the money question but now that nature bas removed that question as a factor In our politics there remain no occasions for Democratic differences I have no desire toI attempt to wrIte a Democratic platform but a reform Alt the tariff look tug toward freer trade Is something In which all Democrats believe and something that n Imperatively de manded by the bust Interests In the country Mind you tdo not say freeI trade The necessities of revenue make free trade impossible but we could and should have freer trade along all lines and not tree trade in spots Other doctrines upon which all Democrats can stand are buslnessI like economy In public expenditures opposition to the autiJcratic rule ofI the present dynastic of the White House and honesty In our foreign lations The latter Is especially portant We should deal honestly with other nations that we may re main at peace with them We do not want a war brought on by strenuosty and jingoism In our

Is to be a year of Democratic opportunity and when the rIght man as the nominee for President on a sound Democratic principles a majority of the Amen can people will again demonstrate their Democracy I do not care at this time to enter into a discussion of the several excel lent men who have been mentioned in connection with the Democratic nomination Any good Demdcrat would be Persunally acceptable to me and I do not believe there hasbeen a suflt dent cyrstalization of sentiment to indicate who the choice or the party Jsor Is likelytobe Any predictfonin thatrespect would be the

McOlister and wife telling them of the murder or their son and only child Elzy whoI was shot by Ade Willis near Falrplay on Sunday evening at 7 oclock Dec 2011903 Sad Indeed It was to his dear father and mother who slumbered sweetly In their cozy cottage until the dawn or day while their darling boy the Idol or their hearts on bended knees with race burled In the frozen earthI was sleeping his long sleep unknown W them Elzy was a boy whom averybody liked Always cheerful smiling and happy not a trouble of this life had marked his youthful browtaken away young being only 20 years Of age Then badly we nay Dearest Elzy thou hast left us Here thy loss we deeply feel But tis God that hath bereft us He can all our sorrows heal There was a time not long ago Whenround hisform were thrown The thousand comforts deal delights And guardian cares of home The manhood happiness of life Shone on his care free brow And love and warmth and light were there Where are those blessings no Twas not the oceans raglngstorm That sank him neath Its wave Nor was it any foul disease That laid him In his grave But It was the murderers millet That took his life away And left his lifeless bodY On the frozen ground that day While drop by drop the me blood Oozed from his wounded heart He was left with no one near him Through the lopgnlg tcold and dark Yes all alone with freezing form Beneath a wintry sky kie kneeled upon the frozen earth And there alone did die When morning with her streaming light Came oer the eastern hill And flashed her beams across the fields She saw him Kneeling still But from his cold and frozen lips Came not a trembling word The weeping friends that gathered round Were the only sound tobe heard Then peaceful be ills silent slumber Peaceful In the graveso low Heno more will join our number lle no more our teats shallknow Let us ever hope to meet him When the cares of life have fled Where theres joy and peace and gladness Where no farewell tears are shed Broken

her no physical injury The woman stated that she was em ployed in a laundry and that from the outset of her employment she quired the habit of eating starch FIrst she took It In nibbles then in bits and finally In chunks She said that her appetite forstarch was creasing and she feared that if she did not do something to check It she would become a confirmed starch bend She pleaded for medicine that would break her of the starch habit You need nothing and I oannot suggest anything to stop you from eating the stuff besides it cant hurt you Eat a barrel or it it you like and grow fat It beats potatoes all hollow and besides It Is cheaper advised the doctor I feel better since I have heard you say that doctor replied the laundress who looked as If her load of worry had been IUtedKansas City

of friends at the Mar cum Hotel he said Gentleman I um not an old man yet but I have seen a considerable portion of this world Since 18i8 I have made eleven trips to Kansas and Oklahoma and I have seen many Interesting sights but to me the most beautiful thing lever saw Is the eye of a handsome woman There is nothing that beats a beaut- ful woman but a devilish mean husband I cannot entertain like I could some years ago buT admire the ladles I like tosee their graceful forms upon the streets In the parlors and else where about their homes and were they removed from my sight I would not want to live three hours In this world God gave woman to man and she should be loved and protected above everything else The above Is the sentiment or a bighearted man and while Mr Hendrickson did not

selection of the text hooks of the state in the hands of el duty boards Iu effect any bill d this character turns the com mon school system of the state of Kentucky over to the republicans As the matter now stands there are nearly as many republican as democratic counties in the state The late democratic victory was largely due to majorities piled up is a few counties The excess of democratIc votes is not distributed evenly over Kentucky With a combination between the republi can counties the counties in which the book trust has control and the doubtful counties a complete revolution in the textbooks now in usebad enough at present could be effected and a system of books teaching republican docI triune would be forced into every tchool into the hands of each pu pil and into all the homes in the state What would be the result of this Histories denouncing then Southmisrepresenting and dis forting the facts of the late civil war branding Davis Lee Gordon and all southern leaders of the long ago as traitors will be ac cpted as true and every chIld in Kentucky wIll be educated as a republican and taught to dispise the memory f his southern an testate Coming down to more recent events the public schools will bet filled with literature justifying rand glorifying W S Taylor and denouncing William Ixoebel as a hallot box thief and defending his assassinationrDo the Democrats of Kentuckr or the democrats of the legisla tare want this But this is not all nor ball as it is the worst feature of this bill It is an invitation for the Amen can booktrust company to go in to every close county in the State andeelictioll of the county judge the county attorney and the county superintendent of instructions And be sure this will be done The selection of these officllls curs next year and the passage of this bill by the legislature marks an era of corruption and debauch ery and schoolbook trust rule heretofore undreamed of in Ken tucky It may be denied that such are the purposes of this measure and it is probable that these results are wholly foreIgn to the intentions of its originAtors but here are the facts There are nearly as many republican counties ill the state as democratic Including doubtful countiesin which the officials named as county boards arc to be elected next year andcounties in which the schoolbook trust now controls the dem oorats aru already outnumbered Within little more than twelve mouths the school book trust and rte republican ally can completely control every book on every school desk and in the hands of every pupil in the state The result of this will bo the complete republican 7atioll of the state in the process of time and short time at that The republicans are not politi cal fools and if they are not the vpripst idiots in p litlc8 they will dmaud agreement to an this from the hooktrust before they cast their vote the hooktrusts haying neither politics nor conscience kl owing that they can expect no favors at thq hands of
