SAccording to promise I will give you a short sketch of my trip west I left home on the 19th of December went to Glasgow to strike the railroad I fully real ized the need of a railroad from our section of the country with the outside world I stopped with Mrs Alice Ebert who keeps excellent boarding house amostleft team with Finas Breed liverygand feed stable I left Glasgow Nonfor Memphis Tenn arrived there the next day at 10 oclock in time to miss connection whichandin the citygave me timeto take I left Memphis at 10 p m for Texarkana via Cotton Belt route arrived at Texarkana on the 22d at 10 oclock a m had to lay over five hours which gave me time to look over the city It is an uP todate business town I left on the same day at 330 for Paris over the T P Road ar rived there at

doingbusi ness for an oil company at a sal of 100 per month Leaving aFt Worth at 1045 Monday morn ing for the great West I passed some good country before reaching Brazos river but after cross ing the Brazos it is one vast mountain desert fit for nothing but to stop a hole in the ground There are several uptodate towns in the barren country Ab aline Sweetwater Colorado Big Springs Stanton and Midland are towns of about 2000 popula tion each and occasionally you will see some nice prairie and a rich valley with a little cotton field now and then After you cross the Pecos river the hills and valleys are as naked as a buz zards head not a particle of tim ber or vegetation of any kind un til yon get near the Rio Grande river Then you can seemus cuijt bush and cactus once and a while I got to El Paso on the 27th and found my son Robert waiting for me at the depot He seems to be in good health and spiritsthinks El Paso is the garden spot of the earth It is a beautiful city situated on the banks of the Rio Grande at the altitude of 3700 above sea level lIt is supported entirely by rail roads and miners It has one of the largest smelters in all the southwest It is a great railroad center being represented by ten different roads Juarez is a town in Old Mexico with about 25000 population nmetentfy of which are Mexi cans I visited the old Catholic Church Guadulepe erected by J t s Spanish Catholic priest and the Yaqui Indians in the year 1549 The bells were cast on the grounds from metal donated by members of the city Juanze The wood used in construction is redwood which was carried over the desert by Yaqui Indians and carved by the priest The carved work inside vis simply grand There is nothing that can equal it in mechanism and grandeur Goods are cheap in Mexico but you are not allowed to bring them to the United States without paying the duty on them Well as I am booked for Sun dayschool this morning and the bull fight this afternoon will ring off for this time H C

LeafChronicle has this interesting review of the present status of the tobacco situation in the Dark District Every farmer should read it It is not prudent or advisable that Mr Felix Ewing should yet give out the detaijs of his plans or just all that has been accom plished by his trip to New York Let it be understood that such a great undertaking cannot be ac complished in a day as the mil lionairs on Wall street make for tunes and lose them Farmers should also know that the trust has become alarmed and has sent out skirmishers all along thei line to discover the weak places and break the wall the farmers have built around themselves In other words the war is on to be fought to the hilt The movement has already brought 1111 Ferigo himself and his big lieu tenant Mr Dunnington to the field to take personal command in the effort to break the farmers organization They laughed atj the movement for some time say ing that it would soon fall toj pieces of its own weight But now they see it differently and are up in arms They found the farmers in Clarksville district so solid resolute and determined to die in the last ditch there was J not a pregnable place in the wall to be attacked So they took with them their local agents to make an assault on the Paducah district where it was understood that the planters were not so well organizedand posted on the con ditions Here they calculated to make the break in the lines and buy enough low price tobacco to tide over until the Clarksville farmers came to their milk and then have an easy time We are advised to say this much of Mr Swings trip to New York He is able to secure in fact has an understanding for both capital and brains to carry out his plans which will take some time yet tomeet conditions The farmers are not generally aware of the fact that Germany has not been cornered and that Bremen is their strong friend inI this movement Bremen has al ways been ours best customer for her special types of western to bacco The statistics gathered show about 100000000 pounds of tobacco raised in the black patch this year andalso show 84 000 000 pounds pledged to the far mers association Twothirds of the 16000000 unpledged are signersaand will in a short movementjthe entire crop for its demand may be able to buy only about 6000000 pounds of inferior small crops So now if the far mers stand by each other like brothers as they are doing the fight is won rt The preaching of the cross of Christ is a remedy for the miser ies of the fall which has been tested by the experience of eigh teen hundred years and has nev er in a single instance failed Its efficacy has been proved by human beings of all ages from the lisping infant to the sinner a hundred years old All climates have witnessed its power From the icebound cliffs of Greenland to the banks of the voluptious oflChrIstfrom darkness to light and from the power of Satan into God Its effect has been the same with Ir men of the most dissimilar con

1 CHAS Ft PAYNE SusinessMangr SHOWING THE BEARS PAW If evidence has heretofore been lack ing to prove that the early Decembar slump in the cotton market was the re sult of a preconcerted and studious plan on the part of bear manipulators to de press the price of the staple to the ut most limit of possibility without any reference whatever to the cost of pro duction or the demands of consumption that evidence is now so plain that he who rUns may read The bears are showing the paw of bruin most conspicuously since the great holding movement of the cotton farmers has practically eliminated spot cotton from change transactions and left fu tures very much in the air From their Wall street den they are sending out newspaper advertising that any frenzied finance dream that Tom Lawson at his most acute nocturnal periods of indigestion ever suffered These circulars and advertisements are intended to manufacture bearish senti ment byseeking to convey the impres sion with the governments forecasts and statistics as the basis of credulity that the present cotton crop has dis counted Carters oats all hollow and is running so large that the professional bear statisticians are not able to sharpen their pencils fast enough to keep up with it It is simply running away with itself and makes the statisti cal brain dizzy to even approximate it That word approximate expresses the whole statistical situation up to date not excepting the brought for ward figures of the United States cen sus bureau We are in the midst of a bear panic or rather an attempted panic that has as its basis nothing more tangible than statistical approximation But that is enough for opera tions in wind and just at present New York is trying to make the south take to the cyclone cellar by directing Flatiron building currents this way Some of the advertisements sent out farfrom bear headquarters purport to show the exceedingly fruitful and unpicked condition of a few selected cotton patches at a late date by means of kodak snap shots reproduced in halftone These ads whichare being pub lished from ocean to ocean are full of dizzy estimates on the amount of overproduction 13000000 bales be ing a comparatively conservative figure s vby plausible looking charts T wI l 4it and statistical exhibits from the past it is expected that they will bear out the bear contention so overwhelmingly that the south will capitulate without terms and beg the speculative gamblers to take her cotton as a gracious gift Stuff and nonsense It is a desperate reckless game on the part of the but the southern cotton bearsI continue to stand pat That is say they will wisely continue to hold their cotton as the bestmethod by which toI meet the attack of the bears and better prices Atlanta Constitution BRAIN

but sooner or later it does Every man who has served time as editor ofacountrynewspaperhasexp- erienced the trouble reffered to in this little anecdote but not all of them have had the courage to resent it Let there be a society function in the little city and the local editor present some will ap proach him with a smile and say Well getting some news to put in your paper Of course they mean well but they seem never to realize that perhaps even a country editor can lay aside his professional duties long enough to go out in soci ety and meet his friends on a social basis Deacon Dobyns one of the best known country editors in Missouri suf fered this sort of this for years and al though it rankled in his bosomhe never let on but smiled in return and nodded assent But at last patience ceased to be a virtue Not long ago he attended a social affair in his home town going as an invited guest While mingling with his friends a local grocer greeted him with the remark Good evening Deacon Getting some news for your paper Yes thats what Im here f ireplied Deacon By the way Mr Sands are you here to drum up some trade for your store Of course the grocer got mad about it but Deacon only grinned and re sumed mingling with his friends JUST A WORD Just a word makes all the difference in your life as the Louisville Herald ex presses it It is the word forgiveness Human is to err but divine to forgive The word forgiveness is borrowed from Heavens vocabulary Every time pronounced and reciprocated it lifts clouds from life aed fringes the highway with lillies Not a man or woman but needs that work Not a man or woman but can give joy to another by uttering it Words are assuredly instruments of good deeds Just a good word here and there as we move along our daily journey will make bur lives valuable and happy It is impossible tamanto be happy without making his happiness manifest in speech One word we must eyer leaver unsaidY the word that plant a thorn in a brothers sido Cf i t t a j lt T iZ VOMEN MEN ADMIRE Years ago an unmarried woman of thirtyfive was looked upon as a soured old maid Nowadays she is in her prime and will be the ideal of a young man probably many years her junior Young men have a penchant for falling in love with women considerably older than themselves and men who have themselves left twentyfive behind find much pleasure in the companionship of these women who at one time were supposed to have become soured by dis appointment Men find that younger women demand so much attention They expect to be amused or elsetthey vote the men dull and uninteresting whereas a womon of thirty or over realizes that men are often too tired to rack their brains to discover new amuse ments or that it may not be their na ture to be entertaining and fascidating before a crowd though they might be intensely interesting when with but two or three friends The man finds the woman of thirty an excellent chum a real companion wheenver they go driv ing golfing cycling etc She does not expect him to propose to her and he is not always afraid she may misconstrue his simplest remarks into a demand for herhand CHADWICKIRN PROVERBS A word to the guys is

1905 I jft 1hi inflate ffimrotg Urn Published Every Wednesday By THE- Alairgounty I News o INCORPORATED 4HA8 S HAftlKlM Editor Democratic newspaper devoted to the interests of the city of Columbia and the people of Adair and adjacent counties Entered at the Columbia Postoffice as second class mail matter WED JAN 111905 The time is approaching when each political party must deter mine who shall make the race for the various county offices and in justice to our organization and looking to the public good the common interest of aUwe trust that none but competent men in every particular will be selected It is of the utmost importance to look well to the qualifications of applicants and their adaptability to the positions they seek and select only those whQ measure up to the highest de mands Such a course would re r4dound to the good of our party and the welfare of the county tand tend to raise the standard of official position The day has come when political pulls and t and partisan bias should fall before true merit of qualification A misfit in office is a public burden and cannot aid a party or ad vancea common interest and in a community like ours there is not a reason to justify either party in selecting incompetents We hav no censure for those who have convictions and fight to the bitter end Party pride is commenda ble but adaptability and undis puted qualifications are essential to the accomplishment of the best results We are not in position to speak to the Republican organization as to whom it shall select neither do we seek to dic tate to our own party but as a- Democrat and a citizen of thi county we insist that our party exercise due caution in making its ticket Merit will win in the homestretch and while political bias is loosing its fearful grip while the best element of both parties is fast reaching that de gree of independence that seeks merit and since we are in the mi nority the selection of our candi dates will have much to do with our chances for success f The fall of Port Arthur is n more than has been exPecte throughout the civilized world for Several months Its fearful con ditions were no worse than most people had pictured but the num ber of lives sacrificed to hold o the one side and to conquer on the other is almost appalling i Full 100000 men have passed into the great beyond the Japs losing more than sixty per cent of this number this country the sentiment is overwhelmingly in favor of the Japs and some of the large daily publications are trying to create a move on the part of our people J to interfere So far as we are able to see that conflict is foreign to the interest of our country and fully outside of the Monroe Doc trine The two Nations involved are waring for territory and wholelyof their own choosing 4fri L ci f They have had many bloody battles and in our judgement the end of the struggle is not yet in sight Japan at an unexpected hour in the midst of negotiations turned loose her cannons Russia unprepared has met the most aggressive foe in modern times and while the majority of the victories are not hers yet the war is not over Port Arthur has fallen but Port Arthur may fall again We have but little interest in either of the contending parties but frmly believe that Russia in the end will pluck every laurel lost on the bloodstained fields of battle The in ternal affairs of Russia are not to the liking of any who believe in just government and yet Japan has not reached the point of perfection The question is not of righteous government but the PublicaItionssolidly in sympathy with Japan

announce ment officially issued by the Gen eral Staff that Gen Stoesselwill have to come home and stand courtmartial for surrendering the fortress of Port Arthur Wjhilethis is an ancient regula tion

Southern Kentucky appreciate the educational advan tages of Columbia is attested by the number of boarders now in our town In many instances the patrons of the LindsayWilson could have more easily reached city schools but the fact that Co lumbia is free from the vices and snares of large towns populated by people ot culture in its entire ty and devoted to the moral ad vancement has had much to do with the increased attendance and such consideration on the part of parents is truly commendable Of all the small towns with which we have any acquaint ance there is not one that leads Columbia in the makeup of itsIIcitizenship none purer from vi ces nor no town can surpass it in refinement and culture Such a town such a community is the place to educate and the people of the country are showing increased appreciation of the moral in fluence that surrounds the students in the schools of this town Again we desire to say that nowhere in all the country is there a school more intent and thor oughly determined in its work nor none can out measure it in competency to do that which is sought It is flourishing and de serves it This School had an increase in attendance of 65 last week andf 68 new ones Monday There are over 100 boarders in the Dorma tories The full enrollment now stands at 223 and new students geneIral manager has sufficient reasons to expect more than 50 entries

patronage will grow which it justly deserves Two of our young men W E and K S Lester left for Louis ville last week to attend college The former will graduatein dent istry this time while the latter enters a business college We understand that several from this part of the country will attend the LindsayWilson school of Columbia and it is with pride that we note the inclination of the young people of the Cumber land section of country to edu cate Outside of the public schools our section must move out to get educational advantages and so far as we are informed Columbia is making the proper efforts to secure an increased patronage every year We are glad to see such earnest and determin- d e work to build up a grtschool l in Southern Kentucky The good to be accomplished can only be

EflKlIf 4rv r 1 y t DOIS VlfR MARRIAG es The cynical and confirmed bachelor willof course immediately assert that there is very little love in modern marriage Other people too people who pride themselves on their observant nature and fairmindedness would have us believe that modern marriages are made for various other reasons than love And from the proofs which the advance in order to substantuate thei statements it would certainly seem that the Romeos and Juliets of today are possessed of more mind than heart and that little Cupid with the love dipped arrows which he lets loose a random is changed to a sedate oldman with spectacles and a calculating mind It will invariably be noticed however that those who sneer at love entering into modern marriage and seek to show the truth of their reasoning usually illustrate their remarks by relating the stories of a number of unhappy mar riages with which they are acquainted totally ignoring the fact that these au outnumbered a nmdred5to oneone is 1safe in saying a thousand to oneby rwhat are truly happy o v e mar riages If facts come to light regarding a couple who owing disagreements or because they found married life totally uncongenial have decided to separate few months after marriage he or she of the cynical mind immediately seizes anotiieerofand allabiding affection in modern mar riage is gradually disappearing- As a matter of fact the two people- concerned probably thought at the time of their marriage that they were sincerely in love with one another But they discovered when too late that what they thought was love was really only a whim fancy passion or some other thing which is often mistaken fo the true feeling which should exist be tween those who enter the bonds of matrimony There would be fewer unhappy marriages and consequently less talk ofI unions being brought about by conditions than true love if young peo pIe were not so hasty in entering the bonds of matrimony In many cases the new home is purchased the banns publishedand the ceremony with such a whirlwind rush performedI neither the man nor woman examinetionry as the result of impulse and do not discover until after the honeymoon that themiThe result of course is that they en joy each others society for awhile The husband thinks his wife beautiful and the wife thinks her husband strong andmasterful But soon the novelty of their married life wears off and then they find that there is something lacking between them They cease to take an interest in each others society There is no mutual pride in their home and surroundings The husband provides the best he possibly can for his wife and she on her part spares no efforts to add to his domestic com forts But though united by marital ties there is not that natural bond of affinity between them which is essential to the happiness of every married couple And then they recognize that they were mistaken in regard to their feelings of love for one another and slowly but surely drift apart until at last they agree to separate Ignorant people of course promptly declare that thoughts- of love never entered into their marriage at all But can you tell me what love is I fancy I hear some girl ask Can you tell me how to develop the feeling How shall I know when I am really in love These are three perplexing questions to which direct answers can scarcely be venAs to what love is one cannot do better than quote the definition of the apostle who says Love sufFereth long and is kind love envieth not love vaunteth not itself is not puffed up doth not behave itself unseemly seeketh not its own is ot easily provoked taketh not account of evil beareth all things believeth all things hopethall things endureth all things Love never jEaileth ly Love cannot be developed by will pow rtis an invisible intangible JJ Sv J i hiIl 5fi t l sc fjt7 1 7t i tf ItIiL1t 1pki I t h j t t Jt j p something which grows alone and which every man and woman can be conscious of if it existst Unless a girl feels that such love as that described in the aforementioned definition exists in her heart for acer tain man she is not justified in becoming his wife and it would indeed be a sad world if we had reached that pointy where love has become a small consid- r eration in the Ofbcourse there are marriages of conven ience and marriages in which ambitious girls sacrifice love and every other coil sideration for the one set purpose oft rising in the social world Misery and unhappiness naturally attend many such marriagesBut all the latter are greatly in the minority when compared with the thousands of happy unions which true love has brought about One must give the average present day girl credit for being a sensible little woman whose practicalnature is combined with just sufficient romance and sentiment toe make her a true type of her sex She understands quite well the misery which is apt to follow a loveless marriage and in these days the terrors of single blessedness are not so great that sheI vill marry anyone because she meet her Prince Charming CffortaThe Des Moines Register and Leader under date of New York Dec 18 says Buried under ten tons of coal with life sustained by means of a gas pipe forced through the heavy mass while his comrades worked heroically to res cue him was the experience of Hugh Kelly 40 years oldand employe of

steel cars each carrying fifty tons of coal are run from the bardges His duty was to se cure the Cars before they were emptied into the chute Kelly was on a car fas tening the brakes when another employe Thos Haggerty pulled the lever which releases the coal from the bottom of the car Kelly fell with the coal thirty feet and was in an instant buried under tons of it- Kellys fatal plunge was seen by Haggarty but his cries for help brought other employes headed by Alderman Holmes superintendent of the yard to the scene A long piece of gas pipe was shoved down through the coal and fortunately reached the entombedman who was thus saved from suffocation Then followed a brave fight against death Armed with shovels the band of rescuers delved and dug with frantic haste to rescue their comrade Occasionally one would shout encour agingly through the pipe to the unfortunate man Haggerty a lifelong friend of Kelley through whose mistake the accident occurred was among the foremost in the work of rescue and when the last lump of coal had been re moved and anxious hands raised Kelly to the platform he was unconsious His teeth were clinched like a vise on the end of the gas pipe An ambulance had been summoned in the meantime and Kelly was taken to the hospital examinationtby the physicians proved that his injuries were fatal When his friend Haggerty who in sisted on going to the hospital with him learned that there was no hope of saving his friends life vhe broke down and cried like a child Attorney General Moody has filed suit in the United States District Court

scrutinized and everything that bears in any way up or the election may be made known by judicial inquiry Alva Adams democratic candidate for governor who appeared frdm the returns to have been elected but who has declared that he does riot want the office tainted with fraud asked the court to open every Denver ballot boxj but the order of the court goes be yond the mere examination of the bal investigationsfexpenditures and in brief all election matters Attorney Samuel W Bedford for Adams and Attorney Henry J Hosey for the republicans asked the court to make its order of such breadth that the court need not stop at anything in the investigation The court said that was what it meant to do and instruct ed the lawyers to agree upon the wording of the order and present it to the court for approval next Tuesday morning As there are 204 ballot boxes it is evident that several months will be consumed in the examination of their contents by the two handwriting experts to be appointed for this work It is expected that the supreme court will be asked to make an order placing special watchers at the court house to guard the registration books until such time as the investigation is madeThere are probably 20000 fraudu lent registrations on the books of the city and county of Denver said Attorney James H Brown the principal adviser of the republican city central committeeF

approximately 20000 fraudulent votes were cast or counted for Alva Adams in this city There is now no reasonable doubt that Gov Peabody and the entire republic an state ticket was fairly elected on

Center said Col Calliper to a New York Sun reporter was Se reno Wogsley and he was not as you might suppose he would be its strongest and most forceful citizen but really its weakest and I dont believe you could guess in a thousand years how he came by his wealth r Mr Wogsley was a most amia ble and kindly man as gentle a gentleman as you could wish to meet but he had no backbone he was weak He was forever forming good resolves and forever breaking them he was a man of good intentions which he never kept and so he only just managed to scrape along and for half of his life he never had a cent You know who it is that has the paving contract in the place thai is paved with good inten tions Yes Well his supply of material is almost endless but not quite and pavements dont last long there anyway and he must have not only a great but a con stant supply or lie is likely to run short One lay when suddenly he found himself in this predicament shy a few thousand yards and was casting about in his mind where he could get it and get it right away he thought of Sereno Wogs ley of Storkville Centre Vt as a man likely to be able to supply him and Mr Wogsley could Commonly our good intentions fade away and disappear and go below as fast as we fail to keep them but somehow Serenos had never gone that way They had never had life enough in them to get there by themselves or if he had ever intended to ship them lie had failed iu that intention too but anyhow he had tljfe accumu lated good intentions of many years all still by him his cellar full and his attic and two barns and a woodshed a great stock and here was a hurry call for the whole lot and would Mr Wogsley name his price and ship without delay And Mr Wogsley did both and got the money and so it was that about the poorest became tl P richest man in Storkville Center MILK FOR THE FRESHMAN I Laughable Scene Between Sophomore and First Year Rehearsed in Philadelphia Hotel A University of Pennsylvania freshman followed by a strapping sophomore strolled into the buffet of a Broad street hotel the other day says the Philadelphia Record The freshman slowly walked to the bar and then turned to his companion who stood several feet be hind Tell the man what you need commanded the sopho imore imperatively The fresh man sheepishly said to the bar tender A glass of milk please While a dozen men looked on the freshman drank about half the milk Drink the remainder said the sophomore The fresh man gulped it down Now what should you do to show your respect and admiration for the lords of the sophomore class asked the sophomore You know what you have been told Buy the grand man a very good cigar the fresh man replied And what should you smoke queried the sopho more Oh nothing was the hes itating reply Smoking isnt good for the health of children It pre vents their mental and physical growth and then they would never get to be big The cigar was purchased and turning to the amused crowd the freshman sol emly said My but the sophomores are great Then he wheeled and marched away in front of the sophomore to anoth er hotel where the same scene wa rehearsed Mans Pounds A man weighing 200 pounds is

Java as in most really warm riseIcoffee together with a biscuit and some fruit immediately on leav ing ones bed This is followed by a more substantial breakfast but the first really serious meal is served at half past 12 oclock andI is the equivalent of the dejeuner a la fourchett or the AngloIndian tiffin This meal is lystafelIielaborate curry in the prepara tion of which the Malay cooks are especially skilful The peculiarity of the rice table consists in the number and va riety of dishes presented From these dishes the guest has to se lect the materials which together with the rice upon the soup plate before him are to constitute his curry It is also as well to know beforehand that one is not re quired to lunch solely on curry but that the rice table is succeeded by courses of ordinary luncheon dishes It is a case therefore of embarras de richesses The second danger is that of wiselyIappetite nor capacity for the beefsteak or for any of the other solid dishes which subsequently appear and which under these circumstances only produce a feeling of mingled horror and con sternation It is then that one suddenly realizes that the rice tai ble is merely a sort of tremendous hors douevre There are two dangers to be avoided In the first place it is quite possible in spite of the num ber of the dishes presented singly to say nothing of nIl octagonal tray containing a separate chut ney in each of its nine compart ments to get no lunch at all For nothing is easier than after say ingnein to a succession of friv olous compounds to dismiss the one solid

each side The fashion is supposed by some per sons to commemorate the defense of the capital in a longago war by women who disguised themselves as men by wearing their husbands warcoatsThe have been lined with red from time immemorial so that when the warrior wipes his bloody sword upon them it might leave no stain These little jackets are brought home as souvenirs by almost every traveler in Korea Another popular reminder of the Hermit Nation the control of which is now coveted by Russia and Japan is the small brass bell from the crossshaped clapper ofI which hangs a fish of sheet bras These bells hang in the open air the slightest breeze stirring the pendent fish which in turn tinkles the bell The Korean cash box is also be ginning to ornament American homes Since some 3000 Korean cash are required to equal the American dollar Korean pocketbooks take on the size of an English hall chest The chests are generally decorated with brass corners and ornamental plates cut in stencil with the design of the swastika one of the earliest known symbols of the world which at least 2500 years ago de noted as now long liferhappiness and good fortune The appropriateness of the symbol to a money chest is apparent to even the least symbolicallyminded Berlin Traction Celebration The twentyfifth anniversary tof the introduction of electric trac tion will soon be celebrated Ber liDi J c t b

Director R F Paull Director + REST AND RECREATION Along the line of justifiable extrav gance let me make a plea for more re creation for the busy housewife In caring for her home and loved ones she is too apt to forget the duty she owes herself and almost before she is aware of the fact she is growing nervous feels discouraged and irritable At such a time let her pause and consider not how muchshe will save by continuing in the same old rut but how much she will gain by laying aside her work for a time that she may rest and recuperate Do not wait until tired nature calls a halt but make a practice of taking one or two vacations every yeargoing where you can really rest and have time to to think not of the work you have left behind that will take care of itself but of the benefit yourself and loved ones will gain These short sep arations make the heart grow fonder and the dear ones will also learn from your absence how necessary you are to them Time and money spent more freely this way will really pay in the end It will mean better health for wife and mother a larger bank account and happier homesWomans Home Companion Dr Leroy S Chddwick arrived in Cleveland where he gave bail in the sum of 10000 for his appearance in the crim inal court today Later he held a Jong conference with Mrs Chadwick in the womans department of the county jail t o She pleaded with him to trust

comes unsought He who is always seeking happiness wears himself out in the search and makes happiness impossible He who seeks happiness for himself is seeking selfishly and selfishness is unhappinessQueer this thing happiness The more of it you give to others the more you have And the more happiness you take from others the less you have More than this for if you give happiness to others you have more yourself and if you take from others you have less yourself Queer about this thing happiness Some people seem not to want it They nurse their sorrows and cultivate them and make them ten times larger than they were and if happiness peeps in at the windows they close the shutters and pull down the blinds And some people seem ashamed of happiness They never mention in a whisper the happy things that come in to their lives but they proclaim their sorrows and their troubles from the housetop with a megaphone Some do not seem even to like to think about it for they will not waste a moment thinking about the happiness that came to them yesterday but will ransack their mental autobiography and read over and over in their minds the record of some trouble they had years agoQueer about this thing happiness While it is the greatest thing in the world and worth more than all else the least things and the least costly will produce it A pleasant smile given to a little child who is vexed with some youthful trouble will often fill his little soul with Happiness andiiie trouble will be for the time at least forgotten A greeting toa friend given with cherry voice and manner costs nothing at all but will often add to that friends happiness PLANS A COLONY To found a colony as Christ would do it to build and conduct a city as Christ would do it is the scheme of A F

Bryan has announced through the columns of his paper The Commoner that the principal cause of the democratic defeat this year was that the men who secured control of the party organization at St Louis sounded a re treat when a charge should have been ordered all along the line He insists thatconditions demand radical action and that the people want something definite upon which they can rely The Commoner he announces will carry on a campaign of education advocating tariff reform the overthrow of private monopolies labor legislation municipal ownership of public utilities public ownership of railroads and telegraph systems an income tax the election of federal judges by the people the elec tion of the United States Senators by popular vote direct legislation and the selection of postmasters by the people whom they are to serve It will be necessary to regain contro of the party organization To do this the friends of reform throughout the entire country must work together A democratic paper of national scope of fers thebest means for carrying on this work and the Commoner occupies this field The campaign of education and organization which Mr Bryan an nounces will be carried on through The Commoner will not only be interesting and instructive but every democrat and independent thinker should receive The Commoner regularly so as to keep in touch with the progress the reform forces are making and to fortify him self with facts and arguments to con vince his republican neighbor that the democratic party offers the surest re lief from class legislation and trust
