paper The Comm J rithat the prjncipal cause of the tiemp r cratic defeat this year was that the wmen who secured cpntrol of the party organization at St Louis sounded a re treat when a harge should have been ordered all along the line He insists that conditions 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 regal ncontro of the party organization To do this the frindof reform throughout the entire country must work together A democratic paper of national scope of fers the best means for carrying on this work and the Commoner occupies this field The campaign of education and organization which Mr Bryan an nounces will becarried 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 vin ehis republican neighbor that the democratic party offers the surest relief from class legislation and trust domination The low rate which Mr Bryan has quoted

the closing weeks of 1904 With the traditions of 300 years ofnaval power and the consciousness of having been the worlds police force for at least a hunched years Great Britain made a- public recognition of the factthat the navy of the United States has come to be capable of carrying- on the work in the Western Hemisphere which is the function of naval power This recognition came in th form of a redisposition of the na val forces of the British Empire vhich will when fully carried out practically abandon the na val work in this hemisphere to the vessels of the United States The fleet which has been main tained in West Indian and North Atlantic waters since the days of Englishcolonization on this side of the Atlantic is to be withdrawn and made a part of the main de fenses of the British Isles The real reason for the change is that with the additions which have been made to the navy o the United States since the Span ishAmerican War this country is probably for the first time in its history able effectively to police Atlantic and Pacific waters adjacent to North and South America and for the first time the presence of the warships of other nations is not necessary in any part of this wideflung com merce line to maintain the inter national order for which the ships of Great Britain have for so many years H C Gauss in Harpers Weekly Lard and Peanuts At the beginning

great unknown forest region of Lousi ana It was then a terra in cognita save a few canoe landings and Indian trading posts on the river banks It was known as the district of Louisiana The State of

negroes died and the boy was bound out until he should be twen tyone to Mr Sam McDowell of this county Three weeks ago the mother accompanied by her mother appeared upon the scene in search of the boy whom she would have at any cost So obtaining the services of alawyer they soon located him and after securing the affidavits of those who knew him they obtained his release from Mr McDowell and went on their way rejoicing Un cle Sams wards of the Choctaw tribe are w or t h something Jessamine Journal Game Law There still appears to be considerable confusion in the public mind concerning the interpretation of the game law as applied to rabbits and squirrels According to the Kentucky statutes rabbits can be killed ten months in the year from November 15th to September 15 They can also be legally hunt ed with dogs or snares at any time The law against rabbithunting was not passed so much to protect rabbits as to prevent hunters going rabbithunting and returning with a bagful of birds Tie open season for squirrels extend from November 15th to February 1st from June 15th to September 15th It will be seen that squirrels can be hunt ed only five and ahalf months in the year while the rabbit season covers ten months Howeyer squirrels can be killed at any time when found de predating on crops Quail shooting is lawful only six weeks in the year from November 15th to January 15th This

preparations for death He is having a granite monument sixteen feet tall built to be placed over his grave The base will be large enough to cover his casket and special orders for the ar rangment of the shaft have been made In addition to the date of birth death and an appropriate inscription he will have a receipt from the manufacturer chisled on the stone showing that the cost of the pile has been paid At his home he has a choice lot of walnut lumber from which he is make ing himself a coffin taking his time at the work so that the box will be per fect in itSj construction It is to be all handwork and it is his desire to try it before he lays down his earthly burden to see if it is wide enough to turnover in when the day of resurrection arrives He does not go about his work with any air of bravado but has undertaken the task in a sensible earnest way Mr Perry has never married because he does not like women the only one he ever met that he thought he could make his wife having

famine swept over the sad country but to day the lush are face to face with a situation which although st cannot yet be characterized as famine has brought grim want close to the cabin doors The potato crop has again failed and to understand what that means it is neces sary to remember that the potato crop has again failed and that he always lives close to the borderland oi1 starva tion and that once that line is passed over that terrible word becomes a realityA thousand peasants fine upstanding hardworking thrifty people are in a desperate plight What can be done That is the question which is asked by the people who have already seen the specter looming large There is one man who believes the question can be solved He lives in the wild West William OBrien by name and he has perhaps a wider outlook and stronger views on the land question than a mere agitator or politician He emphasizes the fact that the West of Ireland ought not to be in the position- in which it finds itself that it is not at happy hunting ground for those who seek for objects of charity but that rather this distressful country should be made iftyand smiling j- ttIt is the condition not the soil he

force the West of Ireland which reqtied them most would have benefittedTttost One of the great pur poses of theattt was to relieve the poor r parts of the country but as yet nothing has been done and indeed only a liberal scheme for such redistribution of land can save Ireland The peas ants are too patient Their love for the impoverished land is1 verily a pas sion andtheir faith in theprotection

The masculine crazes are many ranging from politics to the pool room sometimes taking in both The baseball and prize fighting crazes are masculine bnt the cardplaying craze like the horse racing craze is of the common gender The visiting craze isdistinctly feminmej the traveling craze belongs to both t genders Love making is very common as well fugenderasinnumberand case The bookloving craze is

They like old furniture old lace and to their tastes old china theidays of Elizabeth a tapestry Hof Louis XIV a chair of the Directory some relic of dead royalty or departed mili tary glory will set women in motion- They travel and hunt for grandfather clocks and grandmother spinning wheels but the secondhand book they have no use for with so many new and elegantly bound volumes at hand Women love to make collections She has cabinets of shells and stones caskets of jewels and old gold glass cases of mosses leaves and grasses but no old poems of Shakespeare or Dante to show her vis itors Womans crazes never run coun ter of her instinctive love of order and cleanliness She is at times a skilled botanist but rarely takes interest in zoology Her collections are valuable because selected and kept withcare and exactitude The craze masculine is sometimes of areprehensible character The craze feminine rarely assumes such a quality The good crazes whatever their sex masculine feminine or

the work before that body the de bate taking wide range pending the introduction of the Capitol Bill by the committee engaged in framing it The few who are in favor of nonaction wishing the old site to be retained as well as the still smaller contingent who wish to see it in some other part of the State took advantage of the opportunity to score their innings each in his own way but evidently as a diversion for their audience in the absence of any practical business until the bill is reported The only matter worthy of special comment was the criticism made upon the amount allowed by the commis sioners to the architect which was officially stated to be 40000 To those who are informed on such subjects this will not appear excessive In fact estimating that the building will cost 1000 000 and that the sum to be paid will include the design of the building and the superintendence of its construction it is below the customary percentage paid in such cases This is 5 per cent and had it been allowed the amount would have been 50000 instead of 40000 The position is a very responsible one the whole success of the undertaking hanging upon the competence and fidelity of the architect A cheap architectin such a case would be as much out of place as a County Court lawyer in a case involving great principles before the Supreme Court of the United States but no Capitol Commission alive to its responsibilities would select the one any more than the administrator of a large estate 1 would employ the other As for those members who may seek to ofbremoving the Capitol from Frankfort they must know that they are wasting time This question has been settled and the State will not look with patience upon any effort to take it up again CourierJournal What A Boy Should Know A

negotiated some time ago a loan of 20000000- It was subcribed in England and in the United States The loan was floated at about 90 per cent and the bonds bear 6 per cent interest making the actual interest about 7 per cent She is now floated another loan of 60000 000 at about the same figures besides a domestic loan of 40000000 As secvrty for the 110000000 borrowed abroad Japan pledges her customs But the Japanese Government esti mates that the cost of the first years fighting will reach 180000000 The customs being pledged Japan must lay an excessive burden on her taxpayers to make up the first years deficit and provide for future operations Rus sia is in the market for a loan of 540 000000 She must also pay big inter est and discount her bonds She has about used up the millions of gold she has been hoarding for years for a war J contingency The chest is nearly emp ty and she must impair her credit and put a financial burden upon her people which they are illy fitted to bear Add ing the loans of the two counties we have an aggregate of 420000000 for one years war r But then direct expen diture of money only half the loss Millions of property is destroyed The withdrawal of
