somewhat dis appointed in their prognostica tions on Saturday when the wind was blowing at a fearful rate and carrying great clouds of snow in its wake Deacon Royalty had said several days before that it was coming and advised every body to get ready to meet it but the Deacons prophecies had been somewhat at fault in the past and no one believed him The result was that there were a number of scanty

ambitions its realized and unrealized dreams has sunk into the grave of the past Beau tiful Spring with its gentle murmuring zephyrs its many buds of promise its myriads of singing birds chanting their glad hymns of praise has passed and the Summer breezes laden with the per fume of many flowers peeping from hill and dale have come and gone3 Autumn with its glorious foliage of every hue ripened by brilliant sunsets has been garnered in the vast harvest of time and Winter bringing the beau tiful snow and ice as well as the bare trees and howling winds is now upon us and finds us enjoying very good health arid a fair amount of prosperity How many of us can look back on the year just passed as well spent Tosome- it will be remembered in years to come with groans and tears as a hideous dreamA dream Dust and ashes a shattered vase A crumbling flower a pale sad face A wild weird silence oer the place A stifled breath Then darknessdeath And a longblock wait for the judgment call- Adreamthats all Many hearts bleed anew as in the secret of our own chambers we rudely tear open the heaped graves of our past and with teardimmed eyes gaze upon the dead hopes which lie buried there To some it will be remembered as the happiest year of their lives which they will lingeringly dream of intime to come while to most of us it has been not al sunshine and roses nor has it been all rain It has passed bearing days of pleasure and days of gladness as well as of joy and sadness As I write today afew lines which II As we look back along life s dusty way We find some barren places and some flowers Some days of sadness some sunny hours As we look back As we look back tome memories give us pain Some bring the tears unbidden to our eyes And someiAh some shallnot al Rays Piek V JAs we lookbackl h 3i y t t l r Those few lines bring back to me the memories of the last years spent in school Oh shall I ever forget those happy days As my memory lingers on those scenes forever past I am again in my own co zy room with my roommates mingling our thoughts in confidential friendship talking of our plans for the unknown fu ture confiding our little troubles to each other forming a friendship which I trust shall never be broken I would like to dwell longer within thy hallowed walls but with a sigh for the mighthavebeens and a half breathed prayer for future guidance 1 must wan der on through the briery lane that leads to the place of learning where we have recited many lessons to our dear teachers I shall ever treasure in my memory the blessed thruths they have taught us within these sacred walls and in after years when we are wearied by the bustle of the busy world our hearts will often long to turn and take repose beneath thy sheltering shade AS I write my thoughts fall upon a mantle photo a group of friends who composed the last terms of school which I have been privileged to attend The thoughts of the happy hours spent with these friends have been a great pleas ure to me since we separated in sorrow to return to our respective homesbut as my memories linger on that mantle photo today a feeling of sadness steals across my mind for only a few weeks ago one of those friends was called by the Good Shepherd and entered the great beyond and as my thoughts lin ger on that group with sadness I cannot but wonder who will be the next There is reaper and his name is death And with his sickle keen He gathers golden sheaves at a breath And the flowers thatbloom between Ahhow many of us if we were called before the great Judge to render an ac count of the past year would hear Him say in loving Well done and how many would stretch forth an empty hand and cry in anguish Nothing but leaves And now this beautiful Sab bath morning finds the book of the new year with its pages of pearly white open before us and though the wounds which we thought time had healed bleed anew by the fresh reopening with a sigh for the hours that mightliaveVbee- nbetter spent atd a pray er for strength and guidance through future trials we shed tears on our bur VV r cf FrFYi J t i ried treasures and gently leave them and shoulder our burdens to start on our journey

between drinks The true history of this famous anecdote was told by a South Carolinian It appears that the phrase was first heard at a political din ner when the governors of both North and South Carolina were present The first govenor had delivered a fiery po litical speech The situation was intense when the turn came for the gov ernor of South Carolina to speak It seemed that any word the governor might say would complicate the situa tion Even should he keep silent his opinion would seem clear It was at this critical moment that the governor of the other Carolina rose and inspired by a stroke of genious remarked its a long time between drinks Theabso lutely noncommittal remark saved the situation The Cost of a Modern Hotel One of these hotels costs ven mill ion dollars The decoration of its royal suite of six rooms cost seventyfive thousand dollars The plant to filter the air cost three hundred thousand dollars The tulipwood bed from the old French chateau cost ten thousand dollars and so did the piano which adorns the ad joining receptionroom- The solidsilver fittings for each bath room in the hotel cost twelvp hundred dollarsThe paintings marbles and bronzes which decorate the house represent an expenditure of half a million and on the other hand each doorknob in the hotel cost ten dollars The daily amount of money spent for flowers is at least five hundred dol lars The Moo n s Mission Some partisans of final causes have imagined that the moon was given to the earth to afford it light during the night but in this case nature would not have attained the end proposed since we are Umfl i 1ri i ii 1tt 4 d4Yt4 xr r iJ f 1 t l i t r time of the light of both sun and moon To have accomplished this end it would have been sufficient to have placed the moon at first in opposition to the sun and in the plane of the epliptic at a dis tance from the earth equal to the one hundredth part of the distance of the earth from the sun and to have impressed on the earth and moon paralled velocities proportioned to their distances from the sun In this case the moon being constantly in opposition to the sun would have described round it an eclipse similiar to that of the earth These two bodies would then constantly succeed each other and as at this dis tance the moon could not be eclipsed its light would always replace that of the

distribution of Federal patron age in the State Mr Bennett is expected here next week and the powwow of the Republican leaders of the State will probably be arranged shortly thereafter It is doubtful if the leaders will have as smooth sailing in adjusting the ambi tions of the Kentucky office seekers as they hope for Dr Hunter and others are bent on making trouble for those who attempt to parcel

WED JAN 11 1905i The effort made by the temperance people throughout the en tire country has in a large measure failed to accomplish that which is desired and which has engaged the best talents and energies of our truest and noblest people In every section of our great country there are those who see and deplore the wanton destruction of strong drink who are willing to make great sacrifices to arrestthis fearful destroy er and yet in the face of all ef forts and in full view of its de structive tendencies young men by the thousands are moving on to a drunkards grave The pro hibition party has never been r able to command the strength of prohibition people and in our judgment never will aid the causei for which it was intended simj ply bacause it is not a politicalj but moraltruly a Obtain the best results to reduce its manufacturer sale and use temperance people must unite but this can not be accomplished when prohibitionist vie with one or the other of the two contend ing political parties of our coun h try This has been thoroughly demonstrated for many years In our judgment the most effective remedy is to reach Congress through the petition route and ask that body to forbid the general government from ignoring and overriding local demands on purely moral grounds If our Congress would pass a law forbidding the government from granting license to manufacture sell or ship intoxicating drinks into local option territory then eV1 ery commmnity could determine its own course Congress could prevent the manufacture and sale of it in local option territory and we believe that it could pre1 vent its transportation by coIImon carriers just the same 4regulates mail If the temper ance advocates we mean the orIIganizegress with the proposition the strongest and most effective stoke could be made State Leg toislatures are too much hampered by constitutional limitations to give the protection desired and especially is this true of its man ufacture Congress could be as easily reached as a State Legislature r It could act for the entire country It could do what our legislature is prevented from doing Our legislature may be willing but in my judgment it is not able to grant the demands made by the temperance people Local government State rights is a basic principle of free government and when Federal au thorities grant the right to make and sell a commodity in a section in opposition to an expressed dec laration of the inhabitants of that territory is in spirit transcend ing its rightful authority Ap peal to Congress and ask protec tion for every town county and State against the manufacture sale and transportation of strong drink in communities that do not want them 4SenatorBlackbum left Wash ington last Saturday for Ken tuckybJlt before taking his de tJ r n r1w n parture he gave out a salty state menu for the Louisville JTimes He stated that he was perfectly confident of his reelection though he expected to canvass Kentucky more thoroughly than ever before Said he Nothing between heaven and hell can pre vent me from having the opposi tion of Gov Beckham and his State machine He further said I have no hesitancy indeclaring my contempt for Beckham his methods his machine and his conduct of party affairs I de nounce them here and will dp so anywhere There is going to be a warm time in Kentucky be fore the next United States Senator is elected Since putting the above in type Gov Beckham comes back with a reply which shows that he is not wincing under the Senators accusations and that he is able to stear his

luster to the record of the other and in due time the Democracy will ad j just the differences Both would do well to keep in touch with the seasonkeep cool Harry Bridges aged about 121 years of Toledo

bjowingj The time has now come for flier South to assert its rights in Dem ocratic conventions and in doing this it should choose one of its own sons as head of the ticket The fear that a Southern Demo c r a tic presidential candidate wonld be cut by Northern Democratic vcters presupposes on the part of the Northern Democrats a bigotry which does him discred it Nearly forty years have pass ed since Appomattox and the man whom the South would put up now for President would necessarily have been too young in 186165 to have taken any part in the war Moreover the man who fired the first shot on Sumter or even Jefferson Davis him self if he were here would as the nominee of the Democracy have made as good a run in the North in the canvass of 1904 as Judge Parker did The sentiment of the Republi can leaders in the House is overwhelmingly opposed to Presi dent Roosevelts idea of tariff re vision It is claimed that about 90 per cent of the Republicans revisIlonPresident IS said to

says T wish to say that I have been near sighted all my life which prevents me from knowing and mixing with my friends and acquaintances as other men Those who know my condition in that way know that

Usually from November to May this same disagreeable condition revails every year and yet we make the dust fly in Summer and pass off the Autumn days with but little effort to better our public roads It is now too bad to make roads and the roads too bad to make time The crippling of business the inconvenience and loss due to six months of wholesale mud ought to impress eve ry energetic citizen in our county to ask more and do more for the roads There is no lack of material and the people and the county combined are amply able to mafeeand enjoy as good roads as any other county in the state It will re quire money labor arid united effort but good roads are worth all the cost It is time for the people of Neatsville andvicinity to bestir themselves in regard to securing pledges for the fund required by the Fiscal Court to build abridge across Green river in that section The court meets in April and if this matter is allowdd to go until the last day it may fail A bridge at that point is indispensable for the welfare and convenience of a large section of the county and while the propsition made by the court last year seems to be a little heavy on the citizens directly interested yet it is no more than has been required of others under similar conditions This should not fail and the people in that section should get to work to make it secure Every im provement adds to the good of

late Fri day night removing the member about 10 oclock Saturday forenoon Mrs Grady lost the sight of the eye sometime ago and for several weeks she suffered much pain Her husband who is a well known physician informed her some days since that her eye would have tobe removed and it was agreed that Dr McChord should be the operating surgeon It was a very successful op eration and Dr Grady Dr U L Taylor and Dr C M Russell who were present speak in the highest terms of Dr McChords skill Mrs Grady has Suffered but little and in a few weeks she will be able to wear an artificial eye hence the removing of the dead member will restore her to health and when the eye to be procured is placed it will be hard to detect that it is artificial The many friends of Farmer Lee Smith pow located at

questions as to what course he will pursue If I am convinced that Taylor and Finley will not receive a fair trial why of course I shall not honor a requisition he added Mr Hanly declared that he had not expressed an opinion as to the merits of the case cc I have studiously avoided ex pressing myself in the matter both during the campaign and since the election he said When first asked what his

stated above If a requisition is presented I shall consider the case very carefully and decide it fairly and honestly he concluded Mr Hanly will succeed Governor Durbin at noon Monday Taylor and

Cincinnati Enquirer Frenzied Foolishness It is gratifying to note that the two million bales of cotton to be burned by the farmers of the south has been reduced to one bale A move so utterly at variance from common sense could not have averted the disaster sought to be averted Glasgow Times Secretary of Agriculture Wil son takes the only tenable and sensible position when he says I do not think the farmers of the south are going to burn much cotton They will see the wisdom of holding what they have of their crop over until another sea son in order to take advantage of a higher market which will then have been probably created and next year will plant less acreage and instead of raising cotton as their entire crop will plant alfal fa and other cashproducing com modities The slump in the mar ket was created principally by an increased interest and in a decid edly heavier weight of the quali ty of cotton grown The same bulk of cotton this year is mate rially heavier than that of last year all of which features have a bearing on the present state of the market In order to make their plan of raising the market price for cotton effective it would be necessary for them to burn at least 2000000 bales they total crop being above 12000000 bales The average price of poor cotton today is in the neighboorhood of 10 per bale so that the burning of 2000000 of bales would mean a loss to the Southern cotton planters which they need not bring upon themselves but could avert by holding the cotton over another season Two million bales of cotton at t forty dollars per bale means the

require it as the work can not be done in freezing weather and should not be done when the sun is shining on the glass to insure the best results At such times dust them well with a dust cloth and leave them until a warm day and an hour when the sun is not shining on them Or use a large painters brush to brush the dust off brush the ledges of the windows and wipe it off the glass with a dry cloth Do not use soap in wsshing windows but rub them over the inside with a little whitning moistened with a little alchohol and wa terabout equal parts Polish off the whitning using a chamois skin or an old newspaper which must be softened by crumpling with the hands Care should be taken not to allow the powder to scatter around the room as it will if not gathered up in the paper or chamois skin while it is being rubbed off Reg ular glaziers always polish giass with whitning Do not use strong amonia washing windows or it will leave a film on the glass which will be difficult to remove

Were Chosen Originally The flower of our country is pop ularly supposed to be the golden rod says the New York Herald Some years ago when the choice of a national flower was left for the children in the public schools to decide by vote the choice fell to the wild rose But nine people out of every ten would tell you that the goldenrod was the one decided upon and that flower is perhaps best suited for the purpose for it abounds in all parts of the United States and is rarely found in any other country In England in the fourteenth century the national flowerwas the broom or planta genista It was not till the reign of Henry VI that the national emblem came to be the rose The story of Irelands shamrock isa very pretty one St Patrick was one day preaching at Tara trying to explain the doctrine of the trinity Plucking a shamrock which was peeping up through the turf at his feet he said Do you not see these three leaves on the one stalk Such is the doctrine of the great three in one From that time the shamrock was the national emblem in Ireland The tale of the Scottish thistle is a very different one In the reign of Malcolm in the year 1010 the Danes swooped down upon the coast of Aberdeenshire by night intending to surround and storm the great fortress of Staines The first installment crept up barefooted and dropped into the moat but they found they were not in water at all The moat was dry and covered with a great growth of thistles which stung their protected feet and caused nnIi cry out unmercifully The moImeDanes who broke and fled From this fact the thistle was given its high place in the esteem of the ScotchmenFrance the only country whic allows a flower to appear in its tional heraldry But the fleurde lis or three lilies is so different from most flowers that it does not seem out of place on the national coatofarms Canada has adopt ed the scarlet maple leaf which makes miles of her woods blaze in autumn The Japanese have th chrysanthemum and fittingly
