April 29th The contest inaugerated by the Herald as to what two of Ken tuckys sons should be honored by having their statues placed in the Hall of Statuary will close on Saturday April 29th In this contest The Herald offer ed 25 in four prizesone of 10 one of 750 one of 5 one of 250to those students in Kentucky colleges or public schools who name the two men who are selected by the majority of those not students who express an opin ion as to what two men should be so honored The purpose of The Herald in inaugerating this con test and in offering these prizes was to arouse interest in the study of the lives of Kentuckys dead sons who served well their coun try and reflected honor on their StateWe ask every one who sends in any selection to give the reasons why in his judgment the two he names should be honered above other distinguished dead We hope a large number of the people of Kentucky will express their preference and in each and every school in the State attention will be called to this contest that the students may have their interest directed to the study of the history of the State and of the times during which Kentucky had a worldwide fame as the birthplace and horn e of great menNo selection will be considered in determining the result of the contest that is not received by the 29th of April and the prizes will be awarded to those who make the first selections We again ask the papers of the State to call attention to this contest and hope that it may re sult in reviving to a certain ex tent a knowledge of and an ad miration for those to whom Kentucky and the world owe so much The Lexington Herald April 16 Woman Lighthouse Keeper The Santa Barbara lighthouse has been kept by a woman for thirtyeight years In 1J356 a lighthouse was erected two miles south of Santa Barbara and President Franklin Pierce ap pointed Albert J Williams to be the keeper In 1865 near the close of the Civil War Mrs Julia F Williams was appointed keeper to succeed her husband who had died She had the long est service of any keeper on the coast She has been away from her post only two nights in twentyseven years and rarely leaves the lighthouse except on Sundays when she drives to Santa Barbara to attend church The tower rises 178 feet above the sea level and the solid white light can be seen seventeen miles at sea A conditional request has been made for the resignation of John G Brady the governor of Alaska Although this request was for warded by Secretary Hitchcock under orders from the president over a month ago no reply was received The request grows out of the fact that Governor Brady is connected with a mining company which is extansivel Y engaged in advertising its affairs Secretary Hitchcock decided that ths case was on a par with the charges made against the Dawes commission and immediately wrote to the governor calling his attention to the matter telling him he must either vacate his position in the company or resignrhis

loyal helpful true broadminded and generous Your friend hasnot only good qualities but faults shortcomings and even defects So too have YousaYs the Lowell Herald Thefact that he is your friend does not give you the right to censure publish or exaggerate his deficiencies It does not give the right of hurting his feelings by constantly reminding him of his lapses and failures strong men occasionally make bad breaks Weak men are furtive and stealthy They cover their tracks The weak are pro verbally censorious They delight in pointing out the defects of the forceful To this latter they may profess friendship But the profession is for some selfish pur pose They are unfit for friend ship whose first and most sacred duty is to protect ones friend ship always especially at the lat ters weakest point It is a fra grant and unpardonable breach not indeed of friendship for friendship must be unknown to such creatures but of right and common decency for anyone to expose unnecessarily anothers fault or reveal that which he came to know in confidence- It is however done every day The fellow who knows it all has always something good to tell His neighbor has made a mistake fallen victim to a culpa ble practice or habit met with loss suffered some family mis fortune The foul tongued know itall must give it away The betterthananybodyelse chap hears a person believed to be his friend praised He admits that the party named is all right enough butToo bad of course Nobody feels it more keenly than the better than any body else fellow The party in question is his friend but The person thus maligned may be at the very time serving the ma ligner to the best of his ability putting shekels in his coffers ob taining honors he does not de serve The fellow that knows it all and the fellow better than anybody else cannot be a friend Friendship is not for narrow self seeking sou Is Friendship says Junius c is too pure a pleasure for a mind cank Bred with ambition or the lust of power and grandeur An old Scottish proverb has it right Friendship canna stand a on ae side It takes men to form- a friendship It is unknown among the degenerates the un truthful the disloyal andno moral leper ever obtained it Do you want friends Be a friend Neutrality Question in the absence of further information regarding the position of the Russian and Japanese fleets the London morning pa pers are keenly discussing the neutrality question for the most part in a keen proJapanese tone The Morning Post takes the milder view that Kamranh Bay is a mere fishing port and unable tor provide coal or other supplies to the Russian squadron which probably took shelter there to replenish from its own colliers and that i though a technical br ahf neutrality has been committed the French author ities could hardly be held responsible unless it Can be proven that they had previous knowledge of Rojestvensky s intensions The Daily Mails at Singapore gives a further report from the North German

their own initia tive or they may have reflected the feeling of men higher UT but in either event they are to be commended neither for their zeal nor their discretion Judge Hargis is now on trial for alleged participation in a conspiracy of assassination and the evidence al ready introduced against him is of too grave a nature to permit the State to end its investigation short of a most thorough hear ing of all the testimony that can be secured The friends of Judge Hargis who attempted to stand in the way will do him no good and themselves serious injury The case is one that must be tried strictly on its merits if Kentucky is ever again to lay claim to being a lawabiding Commonwealth- If it can be established that Judge Hargis is innocent the strong feeling existing against him should have no influence in preventing his acquittal If he is guilty there should be no com promise in the punishment meas ured out to him for the crimes with which he is charged deserve severe penalty His trial is now being held in a county which is rightly believed to be one of the most intelligent and lawabiding in the State The trial Judge is a man of proved integrity and knowledge of the law the Prosecuting Attorney is zealous competent and uncompromising in the performauce of his duty the counsel for the defense is composed of some of the ablest law yers in Kentucky and Virginia The case has passed the point where outside influence either in behalf of or opposed to the ac cused can or should be tolerated and a display of excessive par tisanship will injure rather than benefit the side for which it is employed Louisville Times Seventeen Year Locusts Buffalo correspondent to the Larue Herald says Quite a little army of the sev enteen year locust have appeared near the surface of the earth and hogs are digging up the land in search of them to such an ex tent in the fields and roads as to make it appear that it had been plowed Next year 1906 is the anniversary of the general appearance in full force 1889 hav ing been the last of their regular periods History shows that for more than two centuries these insects have appeared at regular intervals of seventeen years A little sketch of their history might be of some interest to the young people who have never witnessed locust year The mother locusts lay their eggs in the twigs of trees the larva quickly forms and drops to the ground and soon burrows out of sight each one forming for itself a separate chamber where it remains buried and alone month after month for seventeen years preparing in some mysterious irannerfor its brief period of free dom pn the earth But with per fect regularity at the end of the allotted period myriads of them attain maturity and emerge from their long imprisonment when for several weeks

Carlonina in the following and also tells Kentucky to follow suit The action of South Caroli cnae in New York city will attractt widespread attention throughout the South The object of the establishment of the office is to tain a share of the emigration an surplus labor of that great city and to induce capitalists to invest in local enterprises This office will give South Carolina an opportunity to lay before Northern la bor the inducements which the South offers and to show to the money kings and home seekers the possibilities that tha great South offers both as field for in

possibilities o advertising While this is a new plan it is a good one and one that in the end will pay Adver tising will as surely help a State as it will an individual or a corporate enterprise Kentucky needs just such a commission as South Carolina has employed a wellpaid man capable of por traying the resources and possi bitities of Kentucky of which no State in the Union has more What we

to Mr Yerkes but will be relieved of a great deal of the detail work of the see retaryship of the Commissioners office It has been Mr Giovannolis intention to resign from service and to start a Republican pape- in Kentnckjr but the promotion which he has just received will doubtless decide him to remain in the capital Mr Giovannoli is a native of Danville and for inany years was a writer on the Advocate If we are any judge of testi mony the Hargises and sher iff Callahan are in too close quarters to be healthy That they conspired to murder scarcelydto tell what a jury will do in this day and time but it cost nothing for lawabiding people to say what should be done In o u r judgment the jury should not use any more time than it takes to write a verdict and that verdict should be guilty and nothing less than a long term fixed as the punishment The reason given for Commis sioner Yerkes long absence from Kentucky is that he does not want to be annoyed by an army presf forma Senator Blackburn thinks that if the Democratic caucus of the next General Assembly fails to nominate him for reelection that Mr Yerkes will be the next Governor of Kentucky In this Senator Blackburn is

face bc lieving that he would prosper as the years would come and go But ten days ago he was stricken with double pneumonia and last Friday about dark his spirit went to God who gave it He was a man of the strictest integ rity a Christian of the purest type hence he had no fears of death During his residence in Columbia he made many friends all whom speak of him in the highest terms The citizens of Columbia generally feel keenly this death as the deceased was enterprising and was of that char acter that makes a community better for having lived in it The funeral services were held at the

an order made to that effect We learn from Mr C R Hicks County At torney of Cumberland county that all the heirs agreed to ignore the pro visions of W F Owsley Srs will and that an equal division would be made at his death The Senior Owsley is ninety two years old and is making his home with Mrs Grant his daughter who lives in Louisville We also learn that Mr Owsley has become reconciled to his son and that peace prevails withall the heirs We have heard a number of express ions from those who heard Evangelist Newsoms lecture To Men Only last Sunday afternoon It is spoken of in the most

excessive charges for freight and unjust discrimination This road connecting the Atlantic and the Pacific oceans was completed in 155 so that it has now been in operation for half a century For a to f time after its completion the char for firstclass passenger transportation fortysix miles was 25 in gold Rates for freight were correspondingly high After the completion of the transcontinental ilr ad

go out of business It is the opinion of the Bulletin as of every intelligent citizen of theUnited States that the country needs the services of a strong and co herent opposition in congress and our contemporary tells the democratic party that should be able to form such an opposition as a result of the congression al elections of 1905 All that is true Although a disheartening record of six

which has rendered the socalledopposition powerless for good is responsible for much harm Had the democrats been real menace to republican ascendancy there would have bee fewer abuses of power and less neglect of duty The Bulletin concludes its brief discussion with the remark that the present con dition of national politics is distinctly abnormal and unless all the lessons of American history are at fault it will not continue permanently Sweeping as the last democratic defeat was and following as it did on two other dis astrous reverses there is no reason why members of the party should regard its condition as hopeless The most sug gestive fact in this connection is that there were 3063000 voting citizens who did not show up at the polls last Nove ti- ber That element may decide the

druggist guaranteed SOc and 100 Trial bottle tree i r 4RI yacr Explains How Pacts Recur As the result of many experiments Dr Swoboda an Austrian savant has formulated a new theory the way in which recollection of bygone events will flash into the brain without apparent causeDr Swobodas suggestion is that such souvenirs have a tendency of their own to recur at the endof stated periods One such period is twentythree hours Thus twentythree hours after the brain has been impressed with the idea a melody a picture or an event it re turns involuntarily Longer periods may elapse before the return of the memorized fact but Dr Swoboda finds that they are multiples of twenythree =such as fortysix sixtynine ninety two and so on These figures refer only to the brains of men Womens brains move more quickly and recollection comes back in periods of eighteen hours and multiplies thereof Dr Swoboda explains this curious recurrence of memory by the oscillation which the organism under goes an oscillation which is quite rhythmic and regular and varies in sexes Another Vienese doctor pur suing the same idea has already noted the return of periods in pathological symptoms such as hysteria and head acheIn regard to dreams Dr Swoboda says that if attention is directed it will be noted that certain dreams are re peated at the end of twentythree or fortysix days with men or twenty eight days with women He thinks that a knowledge of these facts should enable humanity to inrease immensely its capacity for memory These recurrent waves if carefully studied would greatly assist students preparing for examination who depend on their memory serving them accurate ly at a given date- AstoundingTRevelations Nothing of late years has so stirred the public mind as the police court developments of the past few days Bootleggers and blindtiger men alike swear that the county attorney of Barren county and the city attorney of Glasgow have formed a partnership with them guaranteeing

are true deliberately connived at crime and have been paid their pro rata of the money made by violating laws they were sworn to enforce In the face of these astounding reve lations there is but one

of Shaking Hands When to shake hands is a sub ect which depends somewhat on circumstances yet a few gener al rules may be given When a man is introduced to a woman she does not shake hands with him unless he is decidedly elderly or distinguished If he is the husband or brother of the wom an presenting him it is natural receive him cordially by shak ng hands but it is not form to acquainte A hostess should shake hands withevery guest who comes to her house both on their arrival and departure Women do not shake hands when introduced to each other but merely bow When however a young girl is presented by a friend to a married woman the latter shakes hands with her but the girl must not make the first advance Men shake hands when introduced to each other as an ex pression of goodwill When
