her son and brother for the past two months Mrs Helm and Mrs Lincoln were not playmates together They had the same father but Mary Todd Mrs Lincoln was something like 23 years of age when Emily Todd Mrs Helm was born so that the latter became much bet ter acquainted with her half sis ter when she had become Mrs Lincoln wife of the martyred president and when she visited her in Springfield frequently When Mrs Helm was just a girl Mrs Lincoln and children came to Lexington Ky to visit at the home of her father and the scenes of her early childhood Mary Todd frequently visited her sis ter Lillian Edwards in Springfield and it was on one of these visits that she met Mr Lincoln John Todd Stuart a cousin of Mary Todd was a member of Congress a lawyer of ability and- a friend of Abraham Lincolns so thatfit was through Mr Stuart that Lincoln met his future wife Mrs Helm is the only member of her family living today A peculiar fact she relates is that five generations of the Helm faiiiily are buried side by side at Elioabethtown Ky while five generations of Todd family slum ber peacefully side by side in Lexington Ky The Helms and the Todds were pioneer families of Kentucky and all became dis tinguished either in politics the army or other vocations Mrs Helm was the wife of Gen Helm a Confederate general whom his tory rocognizes His father be fore him was Governor of Ken

Bloomington womans fatherwhich follows The old Lincoln cabin which Mr Hanks helped Lincoln build was taken to pieces and set up at the centennial in Philadelphia in 1876 After that it was taken to Boston and other places and it is believed to have been taken toI London but information on that point is indefinite Efforts have been made two or three times by Decatur people who got interest ed in it to find out just what became of the cabin but so far all of these efforts have been with out result MET LINCOLN John Hanks became famous because of his association with the martyred president He was born in Nelson county Ky February 9 1802 His parents lived in Hardin and Breckenridge counties several years and they then moved to Grayson county It was in Hardin county that Mr Hanks first became acquainted with Abraham Eincoln He was a first cousin of Lincolns mother and was seven years Lincolns senior In 1822 he went to Indi ana on a visit and speut two years there making his home with the Lincolns who had previously moved to Indiana from Kentucky Mr Hanks and Mr Lincoln worked together during those two years The former then returned to Kentucky ALL CAME TO ILLINOIS In the fall of 1828 Mr Hanks moved to Illinois going by way of Spencer county Ind where the Lincolns lived Abes father told him to write and iet them know what kind of country he found Illinois to be and if every thing was favorable Mr Lincoln would follow Mr Hanks settled in Macon county and in March 1830 the Lincoln family came here also When Mr Hanks first came to Macon county he had utenough logs for a house on the Sangamon river but on account of not being able to get any prairie broke had settled instead in Hickory Point township THE LINCOLN LOGS On the arrival of Abraham Lincolnshethe logs to

soon as talk of retiring the sun t shine the ffGwers and the sing ing birds Gloomy would this world be without the redfaced jolly hearted old fellow who for generations has been coming once a year to make the children glad And yet they call him a myth It is true that but few have ClausIhe has never been seen But thingsIareA fact that is not necessarily something that we can see and take hold of and measure with the foot rule or put on the scales andweight like a bale of hay or load of cool Santa Claus is real in the same sense that we arehe is a spirit a presence a power an influence whiph is all that the rest ofus are The only trouble is too m ny of us are getting to be so materialized and mercenary w- eIr appreciate the noble old A noble old fellow he certainly is Good natured he is to a fault No one of the priviliged few who have been fortunate enough to lay eyes on him ever saw a scowl upon his brow He is always happybecause he is always thinking of making other people happyHis unselfishness is absolute his generosity is unbounded and to make even one little child glad he would go to the ends of the world He believes that happiness is the greatest thing in the world and when he starts out on Christ mas eve to scatter this blessing around among the children noth ing can daunt or discourage him The disappearance of the big wide chimneys and ample fire places makes lots of trouble for him but he always manages somehow to be on hand with the presents that shall make the lit tie folks t happy If he cannot slip down the chimney he will climb on the fire escape anyway to make the children glad And is it not monstrous nay infamous that as his reward for such unselfish generosity Santa Claus should receive such con tumely and reproach as is being poured upon him in certain quar ters He has beard of the disposition felt in some minds to speak of him with flippant credulity and disrespect and jolly as he is by nature it makes him feel any thing but happy We ought to be ashamed of ourselves We owe the grand old fellow an immediate apolo gy Santa Claus is the best friend that the children have on earth Let us not poison their minds insinuaIr IThey know nothing about mythsbut they io know Santa Claus Later on they will p comeHwise7f or the present pcrmit them to be happy Hurrah for Santa Claus So- S y I and some others say the same Protection rallacy The fallacy of protection argument was never more starikingly illustrated than it has beenthisrinter in ladn with the tariff on wheat Fdcy years the fventold that pthcted Tibe duty tcents bushel os wsst

hatdwh3at in the northwest adyan j2d prices until the Americansfarmers were receiving twenty cents mor0 per bushel jusuamosslmills did not propose to pay the Amer ican farmer the extra twenty cents unless compelled to do so and they thereupon appealed to the secretary of the treasury to permit them to import the Canadian wheat pay the duty grind it into flour export it and secure in the form of a draw back the duty they had paid the government The secretary of the treasury referred the matter to the attorney general for gen eral for an opinion and that governmental official promptly decided in fa vor of the millers Senator Hans brough thereupon introduced a bill to prevent the drawback provision of the Dingley act from being applied to wheat The fate of this bill which is in the form of an amendment to the sundry civil appropriation bill will de termine just how willing and anxious the republican protectionists actually- are to pass legislation which will protect the farmers while it at the same time somewhat curtails the profits of the Minneapolis millers And the whole affair is a striking illustration of the love of the republi party for the farmer Glasgow Times Should I Sleep

both will- recover A day or two after this Mr Lawrence went out into his pasture and found a fine heifer dead and it is presumed that she too died from effects of a dose of poison We are informed that

Homtcidesand Pistol Carrying During the year 1904 nearly nine thousand homicides occurred in the United States In number and ferocity of personal combats in the shedding of human blood this country leads all civilized nations Apparently human life is the cheapest of all commodi ties Discussing these appalingly bloody figures a writer who claims to have examined the statistics says The great majority of the homicides of the United States probably more than three fourths of them are due to the presence of the everready pis tol A man places a loaded pis tol in his pocket as he leaves home in the morning He be comes involved in slight personal trouble and his thoughts and his hands fly to his weapon One life is frequently ended and if the other man has a pistol not infrequently two Over seven thousand men many of them use ful citizens all of them with lives that could have been made valua ble to themselves or to others have fallen before tne pistol in this land of ours during the past twelve months And yet we call ourselves civilized I The stinging truth of this accu sation cannot be denied Especi ally is it applicable to every section where the pistolcarrying crime is rampant In Kentucky the punishment for carrying a pistol is a heavy fine and imprisonment but the law is as dead on the statutebook as is Julius Caesar in his coffin It is not probable that any Kentuckian of respectability has gone to jail for carrying pistol in ten years penalityany orce ment of the statute Combined with whisky the pistol is the deadliest enemy of true riian hood and is an incalculable curse to Kentucky Homicides arid pis tols go hand in hand twin broth ersIn their work of blood and deathAnd a public sentiment that does not condemn bloodshed as it should nor uphold the law against the carrying of concealed weapons at all is largely respon sible for present conditions Glasgow Times A Strange Army Every morning at the seemingly strange hour of one oclock 2000 men form in two

before the convention that was held in this city in 1898 one of the arguments used by his friends in favor of his nomination was his untiring industry All who knew him in the practice of his profession conceded that he possessed this qualification and also agreed that it was a qualification of prime necessity but some argued that we had elected industrious lawyers who had not made industrious judges and they could point with truth to many instances They said it was one thing to be industrious in the prosecution of private busi ness but quite another thing to give the same amount of labor to the duties of an official position The Court of Appeals was at that time between two and three years behind the docket and there was a well founded complaint that such a delay of justice amounted toa denial of it Since that time the Court of Ap peals has been disposing of its business with such dispatch that at the beginning of the January term it could be predicted that cases would now be decided with n a few months after their sub lission A member of the bar who has some taste for details and inves gation has prepared the follow ing which show 1 the number of cases decided by all the judges in a single year 2 the number of casesdecided by Judge Hobson in each year 3 the number of cases decided by the Judge most nearly approaching the maxium and 4 the average

any other district but he has handledsome of the most intpor tant matters that haye come be fore the Court Among these ca ses the following might be cited TaylorVs Beckham affirmed by United States Supreme Court as to office of Governor L N R R Co vs Common wealth as to long and short haul clause affirmed by United States Supreme Court Green county vs Shortell as to validity of county bonds 25 R 357Carter county vs Brooks 25 R 2284 as to act creating new counties f He also wrote dissenting opin ion in Pratt vs Breckinridge as to the power of election contest boards and dissenting opinion in Meyler vs Wedding 107 Ky 691 as to jurisdiction on the Ohio river and this latter case being appealed the Supreme Court adopted the view of the dissent ing opinion- It is an important matter both to attorneys and litigants that all cases should be determined as speedily as possible and all the judges of the Court deserve cred it for the improved conditions in the Court of Appeals but it is a special congratulation to the people of this district that their rep resentative on the Court of last resort has been in the largest measure the means of bringing about the desired result- S The President in his speech before Republican Club of New York at its annual dinner in honor of the memory of Lhicoln chose as the subject of his address the race problem and the relations sustained to it by the people of all sections of the coun try The speech should and doubtless will put an end to the fear of the Southern people that Mr Roosevelt intends to use the negro for political profit and holds out the hope that in the coming four years of his adminis tration a long step forward will be taken toward the final and rightful solution of the prob lemThe position taken by Mr Roosevelt is in accord with that of the closest students of conditions among the white men of the South who recognize and are anX- ious to discharge their obligations to the negro It gives to the lat tel no hope of laving conferred upon him any right or privilige to which he has not entitled him self by adequate mental and in dustrial preparation and lays no restraint on the former which is not imposed by law and the spir it of fair play Read without prejudice the speech presents just cause for encouragement and renewed effort on the part of the men of both ra es in the South and carries with it the ex pectation and belief that Mr Roosevelt who now enjoys a larger share of popular confidence than has been given to any other President since Lincoln is intent on measuring up to the full standard of his responsibilities and p6ssibilitiesL o u i s v ille Times A Question of Happiness Some one propounded this question Which is the happier a man with seven daughters or a man witli 10000 OOOZA number

they live near one of Kentuckys most historic spots but it is true nevertheless for at place the red men fought their last battle in KentuckyPatrick Brown father of the late Alfred Brown of Elizabeth town who was so well known to many of our people led the whites who numbered fifteen or more and the Indians who numbered fifteen were led by an unknown chief Thi account of that his toric fight was found in the pa pers of Judge Wm R Thompson who got his information from John Walters one of the partic pants in the battle From the ancient manuscript furnished by J V Thompson son of Judge William R Thompson we gather the following account of the battle HISTORIC LOCALITY One of the first hiftoric places in Bullitt county is Browns Run a little stream which empties in to the Rolling Fork just above its junction with Salt river It is the spct whereon was fought the battle with the Indians in 1792 which was the last invasion made by them in this part of Kentucky A party of twelve or fiteen In dians visited Severns Valley and did some mischief and were mak ing their way back to Indiana What was then known as Severns Valley is now the site of Eliza bethtown and the beautiful val ley above and below it The In dians had murdered two women and five children killed some stock and burned several houses and fled northward closely pur sued by a band of brave frQnt iersmen led by Patrick Brown father of Col Alfred Brown of Elizabethtown It was late in the afternoon when Brown and his followers started in pursuit of the dusty murders but so rapidly they carried the trail that at sun set they were close upon the de spoilers of their homes They found where the trail led down into the Rolling Fork and it then being dusk they went into camp No fires were built but each man slept on his arms except two trusted sentinels who guard ed against surprise As soon as daylight came the trail was ta ken up and followed downstream for a short distance when it cross edFollowing it across to the oppo site shore they did not go far un til they found the enemy still in camp between the banks of the Rolling Fork and Browns Run smoking their pipes and warming around the big fires The white men got in good po sition and got first fire and then ensued a thrilling hand fight in which fourteen Indians nd three white men were killed The Chief a large active fellow andI a fine shot killed two or three of the whites in the fight and de liberately scalped these in the heat of the battle and seeing his men all killed or wounded fled in the depths of the virgin forest andmade his escape Many shots were fired at him as he dis appeared in the bush but he seemed bullet proof In the out set one of the Indians drew a bead on Patrick Brown but by chance just as he pulled the trigger one of his companions rush ed in front of his rifle and Brown was sav dThe men in battle were named Ashcraft Vertrees and Willingham The Ashcrafts of Hardin county are descendants of ihe man slain on that memor able occasion and some of the descendants of Vertrees are still to be found in HaroUh county The descendants of John Waltersiare td bef und ln1 Ijaraeand Hardin counties i out dngkixowsivhere the jnan

Indians was the leader of the whites and led them in pursuit of the foe and let in all military expeditions from Severns Valley He was from Hanover county Va and came to Kentucky with his brother Wm Brown in 1772 andreached Harrods Station 29th of July in that yearI A NARROW ESCAPE When they reached Harrods Station they met for the first time in more than two years their brother James Brown who came to Kentucky in 1779 The next day James left and when they saw him next he was among the dead at the battle of Blue Licks Patrick and Wm Brown were with Gen Logan and reach ed the battlefield after the fight hadended and the enemies gone While retreating with St Clairs beaten forces Patrick Brown sprained his ankle and had to be left behind The Indians were pursuing them closely and searching every place and Brown believing he would lose his life at their hands asked his companions to kill him which they refused to do but gave him a gun and ammunition and hid him off the trail Being hard pressed the whites were forced to leave a large quantity of whisky which the Indians found They imme diately got drunk became less vigilant and Brown was not dis covered PATRICK BROWNS WORK Patrick Brown was a member of the Constitutional Convention of 1779 and wanted to make Kentucky a nonslave holding State but failed Returning to his home near Hodgenville he set all his negroes free and in 1814 moved to Indiana where he died and was buried No braver man drew his sword in behalf of the whites and no more humane man ever left the Old Dominion and cam out to help transform a wilderness into a paradise Correspondent Bardstown Standard Glasgow Fire The large freight depot at this place with all of its contents was destroyed Saturday nightlast by a fire which originated in a small garbage house at the west end of the building The fire was discovered about 615 p m by a train crew switching in the yards and before the fire corn pany could respond to the alarm the blaze had gained such head way that it was impossible to save the building It was only by heroic efforts that thepassen ger depot was saved The only thing of importance saved from the burning bujlding was a part of the records of the freight agent Mr R B Trigg On account of the roads leading back in the countrybeing covered with ice for the past two weeks very few goods had been Jiauled from here and the depot was crowded to its utmost capacity with goods consigned to country merchants The loss is estimated at 40000 and may be more This is conceded to be the most serious fire that Glasgojy has had in many years as it will effect all kinds of trade Not only will mer chants here be inconvenienced but several towns in adjoining counties will feel the loss It is riot known how the fire originated but that a spark from the enghte ignited some oil in a gar geh use is the most plausi ble theory The branch road and buildinvg is owned by private parties here but is being operated by tile L N What

illness the subject of this writing succumbed to the inevitable and closed her eyes in death Mrs Gpffeys maiden name was Vaughan a sister of O C and BB Vaughan She was born September 7 1869 and was married to Mr JWCoffey June 2 1889 To this union four children were born three girls and one boy all of whom are living Mrs Cof fey spent the most of her life in Co lumbia and was a lady highly respected for her many Christian virtues When quite a young girl she confessed her Savior united with the Baptist church and lived a consistent member until the end came She was a victim of pul monary trouble and during her illness she received the best medical attention The funeral services were held at the Baptist church Friday afternoon at 3 oclock conducted by the pastor f Re- vJP Scruggs Quite a number of relatives and friends were present The interment was in the city cemetery To the surviving husband and children everybody extends its sympathy Dead At 57 Years The News desires to extend its pro foundest sympathy to Messrs T R and George Stults of this place and Mr J S Stults of Campbellsville who were bereft of their mother FeblT 1905 The end came at the home of the deceased soninlaw Wm Orr who lives in Green county just over the Adair line Mrs Stults was 87 years old last May and had been quite feeble for several months She was a lady wellknown throughout the neighborhood and the funeral services were largely attended The deceased had been a member of the Methodist church for many years and was ready when the summons came Being ready to meet her Savior she could truthfully say I would not live always I ask not to stay The people directly interested in the Neatsville country should remember that the proposition made by the Fiscal court of this county expires at its reg ular meeting in April if not accepted at that time They should remember that delays are dangerous and get to work and secure the amount necessary to accept the proposition A bridge over the river at that point is badly needed It would be worth many times the cost to that section and if passed now may never be built It is an op portunity that means much to that sec tion and the amount can be secured if the people really desire the bridge Again the failure to build a bridge there whether on the part of the peo ple or the court would seriously block and cripple the enterprising spirit that has been manifested in this county for the last few years We appeal to the people of that section to take up this matter at once and hold on to it until a contract has been closed It is fryour good and the good of Adair coun ty in general that we hope to see this done It is within your reach Get it Wm Earls who served his country in the war with Mexico died in this county last week Mr Earls served with

out on progressive fanning methods The old fields were cleaned new land put under cultivation old fences re moved and replaced by good subsatn tial slat fences and a large barn was built to hold the crops and shelter stock In fact the old farm was completely changed within a couple of years and bloomed as the rose so to speak Af ter eradicating much of the filth by the use of the plow and hoe he began to give it grass He now has twentyfive acres of the prettiest orchard grass in this part of the country and is seeding 75 acres more He also has 80 acres of other grasses 60 of it being mea dow In 1863 this land was sold to the Rock Oil Company of Louisville and held by it till 1901 when Mr Walker purchased it That company never tested the property for oil though good indications foil

ferocity of personal combats in the shed ding of human blood in this country leads all civilized nations Apparent ly human life is the cheapest of all commodities Discussing these appalingly bloody figures a writer who claims to have examined the statistics says The great majority of the homicides of the United States probably more tlean threefourths of them are due to the presence of the everready pistol A man places a loaded pistol in his pocket as he leaves home in the morning He becomes involved in slight personal trouble and his thoughts and his hands fly to his weapon One life is frequently ended and if the other man has la pistols not Infrequently two Over seven thousand men many Hof tbe n- usefulitiZenSaUothemith lives that could havel eeninade valuable to V t r to others have fallen f ff before the pistol in this land oC ours i tY 1 iftt r LI11I T aorsrf ii r r Jl rc Rr rf ifi during the past twelve months And yet we call ourselves civilized The stinging truth of this accUsation Cr not be denied Especially as it is applicable to every section where the pistolcarrying crime is rampant In Kentucky the punishment for carrying a pistol is heavy fine and imprison ment but the law is as dead on the statutebook as in Julius Caesar in his coffin It is not probable that any Kentuckian of respectability has gone to jail for carrying a pistol in ten year and yet the imprisonment penalty is a provision of the concealed deadly weap on law that cannot be evaded under an real enforcement of the statute Combined with whiskey the pistol is the deadliest enemy of true manhood and is oil incalculable curse to Ken tucky Homicides and pistols go hand in handtwin brothers in their work of blood and death And a public sentiment that does not condemn bloodshed as it should nor uphold the law against the carrying of concealed deadly weapons at all is largely responsible for present condi Times Home Hints Avoid cheap reprints or poor pictures of anYsort To have a

Kedleston the viceroy of In dia ended in the government accepting the situation as regards the 3750000 but refusing to permit of the occupa tion of the Chumbi valley beyond three years and protesting that Col Young husband had framed the convention in defiance of express instructions the governments policy being to avoid interference in the internal affairs of Thibet and stipulating that should

Workmen Or dered to Clean It New YorltA recent order to clear Flushing creel on Long Islandi refuse that has been accumulating for niany years may be the means of piac lug small fortune in tha hands cf scx observant workmen There is a si o a few feet in diameter beneath the muddy waters of the creek and within a stones throw of Flushing bridge that contains cents to ftirnjs1 a hundrednewsboys with excitement iii crap games for a long time The cents have been thrown there by an inmate of Sanford hall at Flushing the private asylum for the insane at which Brodie L Duke was confined for a few days The name of the patient is not known He is of striking appearance tall soldierly distinguished looking with an erect carriage mobile countenance and a forehead whose height suggests unusual intelligence So far as is known he is the only patient allowed to take exercise outside the sanitarium grounds For 12 years this man has been walk ing the mile between the sanitarium and Flushing bridge daily Through out the whole period he has been ac companied always by the same attend ant Rain sunlight sleet snow are alike to him His visit never fails No one has yet been able to discover beyond what anyone may see the ob ject with which he daily visits the bridge and flings four cents into the creek near by With a wave of the hand he then turns and without a backward glance marches away toward the sani tarium attended by his companion Whether the daily contribution of the mysterious patient is made to propitiate some evil spirit from whose hand he be lieves an untoward fate to be impend ing is not known Indeed the nature of the mans malady is as little known outside the asylum as his identity But however mysterious may be the cause for throwing the money into the creek many are persuaded that the lucky workman who discovers the mine may well content himself by leaving alone Ithe problem of identity and devote him self to cleaning the mud and grime from the coppers An estimate based upon four cents a day for 12 years shows that there should be 17520 cents in the mud near the bridge awaiting a claimant The person who discovers this mine will be better rewarded in his find than any searcher for Capt Kidds treasure has ever been PUTS HARNESS ON THE SUN New Jersey Inventor Claims That He Can Turn Solar Vibrations Into Power New YorkA machine to utilize the almost

other solar manifesta tions are the direct result of solar vi brations of which at present we know very little However we know this much Wireless telegraphy is an established fact It is demonstrated that vibrations of the ether started by a little machine no larger than a mans hand can be felt bya receiving ma chine over a distance of thousands of miles Now if a little machine can record these vibrations it is evident verylargeunable to even comprehend or begin to imagine but it seems reasonable to suppose that with a generator the size of the sun sending off vibrations of such power as to
