adjolnlDgI f WHEN IS A GIRL AN OLD MAID What Is an old maid You cannot quJte say but you know when you see one Strictly speaking It Is a woman who Is no longer marrtegeabe As to when she enters this stage depends on the woman herself Some women have passed their zenith at twentyfourothers never pass it All depends on the girl and how she has conceived and arranged her Let us first look at the old maid twentytourperhaps the most to be pitied ot all human beingsand often the least to be sympathized with I know an old maid or twenty tour At fifteen she developed IntQone ot the handsomest girls ImagInable and knew It The Immediate result was that she began to flirt with buys at a very early age Her whole Idea ot life turned on making conquests By the time she was eighteen she was a beau ty and a mistress of flirtation and Intrigue She took nobody serIously No other girl had a chance when she was near as her charm and cleverness were Irreslstable I lost sight of her for six year s and knew nothing of her career When I met her recently she was as complete an old maid as say woman could be The charm of her youth had faded lines had made their appearance In her face her complexion and eyes had lost their lustre She was itt short a dwnrlgbt old maid Why Because she had plat too much reliance on her beauty i early youth She brooded over her declining beauty and havIng given over to frivolity had no other resource In llfe to distract her attention A girl Is an old maid when she allows herself to be Just as some people fall victims to any epidemic sooner than others so some gIrls become old maids while others escape Old maidhood like fever Is a thin g which seizes those who are to weak to resist It Who are the most likely victims Certainly one Is the girl who has been too much a girl and too little a woman Finding girlhood a very attractive state at eighteen she bas always clung to It desperately until fading looks fuss her to see that It has flown from her Then follows disappoint ment The woman who resists old maldbood- Is ails who has only regarded a pleasant prelude to a bigger phas life Her zenith Is to be womanhood rAt eIghteen she has only justenter- ed into the contest at twentytour e Is getting Into the thick of It It must be many years before she can possibly pass the merIdian of female life so thirty and even later finds her at her heIght not like the other many years gone In decline Why dues a man not care generally when he finds himself passing the freight of youth Because he has ed In experIence and knowledge b sees the tolly ut youthful dreams learns to see life as It is Youth gives way to manhood and In that state he Is content to flourIsh To avoid the stigma ot old maid a woman must fix her eyes on the things that matter In life She must not allow the knowledge of passing youth to sour her She must not ah low her youth topass but must vIgor- ously flghtthe touch of that archcyn- Ic Father TIme and try to striae In MadgMorrise nOME

PractiCal f umersar sometimes ia dined to resent the advice that fhap frequently flee In the newspapers wltb respect to their methods or doing superllclally1tthat the editorial brethren ho old c tinuetoi rth advice atJs F f i r rarely taken and Insist on writing agricultural essays that are often rIdiculed In a quiet way by those to whom they are addressed It Isa 9mmon saying that an editor can make ten crops with his pen where he couldnt make one with his hand and Itls regarded as presump tlous for a loan who cant lay oft a apiece ot land for a crop nor even run a straight furrow with a plow to be telling the farmers what they should do and how they should economize But the truth ct the matter Is that there are very few armors who ap preclate the real importance and dig ty of their calling or who try to do outotswe ot some who tailed to make a good living and who were always In debt as the result of what they called hard times and bad crops On the other hand we have heard or some who persist In making good crops during the worst seasons and who have full barns and overJlowlng smoke houses at a time when their less fortunate neIghbors are purchas- Ing their supplies la the

storied south on Febru ary Owith 300 companions Onehalt of these with the women reached Mukden on the 10th and were ordered to leave the train by Russian soldiers who cruelly Fused them and detained the party which they finally divided the men ordered to proceed to Port Arthur The women were sent on to Nu Chwang where United Sttes Con sal Millet provided food and transvor- tatlon far them to Shan Haigwan The women say they saw several Jap anese refugees cruelly beaten and wounded They say that the Russian soldiers robbed them of money and jewelry Some ut the Japanese estop- ed punishment by bribing the soldiers The Japanese Government and peo pIe are deeply stirred by the reports of the abuse and suffering They point to their own correct attitude toward the Russians in Japan and denounce the Russians as barbarIans 1The sinking of the Nakanoura Maru d the treatment of the refugees is creating a feeling which betokens a bitter and relentless war It Is probable that the Japanese wlll

Chinese territory talere can be no real reason far the war that has just be gunTbe cause of the war however dates back to the conflict between China and Japan In which the last named power was the victor In the treaty of peace that followed the war China receded to the Japanese considerable territory including Port Arthur No sooner was this cession made public than three great powers Russia Germany and France entered protests They demanded that the integrity of Chinese territory should be preserved and they were so earnest In these demands that Japan thought best to forego the fruits of the victory she had won Hence she gave up Port Arthur and the contIguous territory But as soon as she had withdraws from Port Arthur Russia came In and tool her seat and fortwlth Port Ar that became a

of other pow stipulationstrwas parting on paper but something or other Invariably interfered wIth her departure and today she has a firmer hold on Manchurian territory than China herself The negotiations between Japan and Russia were confined entirely to ques tions concerning the occupation of tbemasnerP thatSManchuria as a finality The delays that have taken place In the negotiations were simply the result of her dc sire for more time In which to convey troops to the scene It has been left far Japan to uncover and expose al as real Intentions with respect t China and the

es Entered at the pootomce as send class mail matter pWEDNESDAY N4I 1904 Mr Watterson rises in the power of his great ability and through the columns of his pa pera publication t hat now reaches nearly every Democrat in the State denounces Mr Bry an and Gov Beckham and charges them with attempting to fix a delegation to their own liking to attend the St Louis convention Suppose this be true then they t are doing no more than the great c editor is trying to do and so far as we can see no sin against the party is committed by either Mr Watterson states that he is dead to political aspirations that he has no desire to attend the convention and that he will lj t not that he is marking out the path that leads to party peace fobr the good of the party and the L salvation of the country Demo crats will remember that this as I tote political leader attempted to save the country and bless his party in 1896 and now since his return to the Democratic fold he sees breakers ahead and seeks to arouse the Democrats of Kentucky fill them with fear of dis aster and ruin if they counte nance any of the principles enun ciated in the last National plat form under the approval of Mr Bryan He accuses our Governor and Mr Bryan of an unholy alliance to advance theirpersonal interest regardless of party wed fare when lie attempts to show that they are tied to Mr Hearst and that the link that binds them is money Whether Mr Watter son be right or wrong is a ques tion that the future alone can re veal but when a man regard less of his abilities and long po litical experience attempts to im pugn the motives of every man who does not see as he sees who has convictions and courage when he planks down the course marks out the issues andattempts to direct his party associaties we doubt the advisability of such a leader Mr Watterson uses his powers to bring Democrats to his views to reverse themselves un der the plea that victory will fol low He publishes to the world that Mr Bryan is a bolter but later explains that the sin corn 4emitted was in a Democratic caucus and not in a DemocraticRe publican contest If Mr Watter son seeks to harmonize our party assuming that he alone can read the future we believe that he should a r g u e measures rather than men concede some parts instead of demanding a full complete and unconditional surrender to the Cleveland wing We admire his great abilities but are not inclined to believe that he 4wants harmony unless he can dic tate the terms Whether Mr Bryan is right or wrong astates nn or a charlatan is a question to be determined in the St Louis convention We can not see any special reason for fighting the r battles of 9G and 1900 over again and have no fears of such a course We firmly believe in the principle of bimetalism and while the result of wars and the unpre cedented outputs of our gold withf16 to 1 demand yet these condi tions may be reversed and the time come when we must again seek the restoration of silver as a standardmoney A reaffimation Aof our last platform would bring no sorrow to the Newsy and choos the Kansas City plat tformand the spirit of the Indian apolis declaration we prefer the former plain and uncovered rath er than have the other with a heavY coat ofsugar If Mr Vattersonis to dictate or mod estly lead the Democrats of this State you may expect a direct ticket to Indianapolis The in telligence of our party will evi j dently direct a safe conserVative iJfZ ijr r 4f a Ii course and all who favorharmo- ny should not attempt to pre scribe a rule of party action that forces over siX million Democrats to concede every proposition to the handfun who refused tgive our party aid in 1896 Live and let live is our plan Forgive and forget Unite by reasonable con cessions from both sides meet in- St Louis make a platform rame the leader and all pledge their best efforts The issues of96 and 1900 have in the main been sidetracked by conditions attrib utable to discoveries and the great demand made on America n products by reason of wars W do not concede present conditions the result of Republ i can legislation Mr Watterson should look for virtues rather than faults advise rather than direct The death of Hon Marcus A Hanna last week removed from the political world one of the ablest men of our country Senator Hanna as manager of the last two political campaigns of his party received many severe criticisms from the Democratic press but since the heat of political battles have subsided and since his position on question of public policy i s better understood a large part of the people regarded him a better man than he had been proclaim ed His lavish use of money in fighting the battles of his party was the foundation for Democratic dislike and for a time obscured or blurred the brilliancy of his intellectual powers in the estimation of his opponents but th wave of hatred passed his abilities admired and his worthcon ceded In his party he was a power in the Senate a cool safe business man There were thous ands of Republicans throughout the country who desired to see him President and had he live possibly would have been the nominee notwithstanding th many pledges made to Mr Roosevelt His lifes work has ended so let us admire his virtues and bury his faults A great mind gone a prominent man taken from a highand honorable station from the greatest Government of the world The Legislature has passed a law that puts a quietus on the Berea College It must be either white or black but not mixed Five Republicans voted for it several voted against it andoth ers stood out as we suppose seeking neutral grounds We endorse the law There has never been any necessity for it and it is not in keeping with the senti ment and judgment of the best people of this State white or black Educate both races but do it separately and if a person desires a mixture let him cros the Ohio The Republican mem hers Qf the House who voted for the measure are to be commended for faithful peifformance ofa clearly incumbent duty A dispatch from Tokyo date the 19th says The reports re ceived here from Korea tonigh- state that Russian troops are ad vancing toward Seoul A strong position at Ping Yang has been occupied by them Their pres ent movements however do not indicate any immediate intention of attacking the Korean capital The Japanese garrison in Seoul has been greatly strengthen dur ing the last few days Reports that the Russians have occupied Wiju having been confirmed it is believed that the first actual battle is more than likely to take place near that town Japsbutpowering numbers win tell the tale Evidently Japan has the good wishes of American peo ple in the main but as we see it Japan would not have been so aggressive but fr her belief that others would help to fight her battles It will be fortunate if the two nations are permitted to settle their troubles unaided by other powers Ron Harry McDonaldwho
