the Hunt a Big Bear The Start For Home Will Be Made May 15 With Stops of One Day Each at Denver and Chicago Glenwood Springs April 21That President Roosevelt is enjoying royal sport in his hunt for Rocky mountain grizzlies is attested by Secretary Loeb who returned from the camp after hav ing spent the night with the party While the only game pulled down thus far is the bear shot by the president and the bob cat shot by Dr Alexander Lambert there has been plenty of rec reation Every day the dogs have fol lowed trails that looked promising showing that there are more bears to be found in the vicinity now being hunted The party will move on West Divide creek within 20 miles of the present location and four miles nearer Newcastle The point toward which the party is working is Redstone where camp will be broken on May 14 The private car Rocket will pick up the president there and he will spend the night at Glenwood Springs The start home will be made on May 15 with stops of one day each at Den tier and Chicago In the Best of Health Mr Loeb says it was only necessary to see the party eat to know that the hunters were in the best of wealth and enjoying themselves During the din ner and afterwards the president and Mr Loeb had a long talk Naturally the secretary wanted to know all about the bear killed It was an in teresting story in which all members of the party shared in the telling The dogs had several times caught up with the bear and had annoyed him until he was in a vicious mood Finally when he was at bay two or three members of the party including the president came up with the dogs One dog had been killed and several others badly wounded and the grizzly was playing havoc with the others thatwere tantalizing him To save the dogs the president had to shoot hurriedly Every sweep of the bears ratherIing between the dogs at the bear He fired once and hit the animal in the shoulder Firing again he killed nis game He takes great pride in his first trophy of the hunt An Appointment Signed The most important business be tween the president and secretary was in relation to appointments that have been made The president signed the appointment of George W Atkinson of West Virginia to be judge of the United States court of claims as well as several pardon cases When the camp moved to the Di vide Creek it will be located on the ranch of Will Grigors It is said game is more plentiful there The snow is rapidly going away and the dogs wi1 be able to do better work When the LoebIvelt as far as Denver will be made ov er the Denver and Rio

Increase in KarriageBecord County Harks Indianapolis IndAccording to the reports received by the secretary of the board of statistics from every county in the state with the exception of Brown county the number of marriages for the year just passed is greater than that of the preceding year and the divorcee is on the wane In the state of Indiana 28213 mar riages were performed last year and 3435 divorce decrees were issued as against 28005 marriages during the preceding year and 3763 divorces Of these 2516 were issued to the woman this year and 2568 last year The statistics also show that drunk enness among women is on the increase and on the decline among the members of the sterner sex Ten husbands were freed because their wives drank 269 wives were separated from their hus bands on account of intemperance The report of the year 1903 shows that only two husbands were divorced because of their wives fondness for the cup that cheers while 342 were made single be cause of their own fondness for drink Marion county judges granted divorces to 109 men and to 342 women In these the chief grounds for complaint were cruelty and abandonment Mar riage licenses were issued to 2675 cou

Discovered a Cen tury Earlier Than It Should Have Been ChicagoOne of the greatest mis fortunes to America said Prof J Paul Goode of the University of Chicago to the junior college students in division meeting that Columbus discovery was made too soon It would have been im measurably better for the western hem isphere if it had not been heard of for a hundred years after 1492 A century later the professor ex plained Europe was advanced further than in the days of the Genoese naviga tor In 1600 it would have been in bet ter condition to take upon itself the set tlement and development of a new con tinent There might have been a dif ferent kind of growth which would have been better than that which finally re sultedThe professor refrained from going in more detail into what might have been He asserted lie had no personal quarrel with Columbus because of the latters achievements The sailors in tentions were good according to the pro fessor and he should not be held ac countable for the harm he unwittingly did It was a mistake but bis object was was a great admiral concluded Prof Goode He did what oth ers had failed to do and he doubtless deserves his monument GERMANS FIGHT REBELLION Battling Under Blazing Sun of South west Africa Without Water Troops Go Mad BerlinThe terrible conditions un der which the Germans are conducting their campaign against the rebellious blacks in southwest Africa are illus trated by the following report taken from the Windhoek papers An assault was made on a position oc cupied by the natives under Henrik Witboi during the first days of the new year The advance which was left by Maj Meister was hampered by deep sand and the first assault was repulsed The troops charged a second time and came within 30 paces of the enemy but were again forced to retreat leav ing ten men behind Then the water supply ran out The troops lay in the blazing sun and many went ravingmad through thirst The sufferings of the wounded were atrocious After a fight lasting 54 hours the enemy was driven from its position but further operations were impossible owing to the complete exhaustion of the men and to the fact that the artillery had only 12 grenades and eight shrap nels left During the fighting so runs the report the Hottentots gibed atour soldiers shouting to them Deutsch man very thirsty Plenty good water here PRAIRIE CHICKENS SUICIDE Frightened by

based upon great moral principles that confidence between man and mar is the foundation stone of all our business transactions both small and great So the ideas presented here pertain to the teaching of the young actualhowbusiness supposing he has been properly trained in the home in moral principles pertaining to business When a business edu cation is spoken of here it is not meant that the pupil must neces sarily take a course in bookkeep ing commercial law and other studies comprehended under this term in some commercial college comprebuthends that every boy or girl who has enjoyed the benefits of a com mon school education should be able to write readily and neatly when necessarry promissory notes of an billsYchecks statements of account wouldordinarynot be expecting too much to sup that a pupil of the age of shouldeigbe able to write without hesitation deeds and mortgages alsoPerhaps some will criticise these suggestions and contend that it cannot be done but it can be done if teachers have the matter at heart and proceed in the right way It is often asserted that in many instances our common schools are of but little value as a preparation for future life from a busi ness standpoint and if we con- Sider the great number of adult male citizens not to mention the female population who cannot prepare the most common busi ness iorms who cannot even fill out a dank check correctly or write iaB ordinary promissory note or keep the simplest kind ot accounts not to mention the more complicated business forms we are compelled to admit that the charge in too many instances is undeniably true To what extent is defective school work responsible for this want of knowledge of the require ments of business and how can this defect be remedied The masses of the people the great common people acquire their education in the common schools and seldom ever have an opportunity to learn these things after leaving school Therefore never having learned them in school they have never had an opportunity or have not put forth the necessaryteJfort after leaving school to learn them The gen erality of the people don t have Ian opportunity inJaterjJie to atf tiJ t tend a business college to lean themPossibly some will think How can this be done 1 How can pupils in common schools be taugh these things l The first and greatest thing to do in order to teach this is to commence teaching it and faith fully to continue teaching it Asa matter of course writing must be taught regularly and system atically that all may learn to write a neat rapaid and legible hand This should be daily exercise and the greatest care should be taker to see that every one who attend school regularly and hay the ap titude for writing can write well There is no excuse for anyone who has one good hand two good eyes not to be able to write a leg ible hand if intelligent and a pa tient effort is put forth in prac ticing writing Therefore the presumption is that these young people can write well or are able to write a good business hand An excellent method of teach ing the work referred to in this subject as most other educational work is by actual practice that is learn how to dothe work by intelligent and faithful prac ticeOf course in a brief newspaper article space can not be afforded for more than a suggestive meth od A good way to do this is by writing and showing the pupils how to write different forms and many more than have been named Explain the meaning of every form thoroughly when presented having it written and rewritten explain and reexplain and drill on it until it is thoroughly assim ilated by all until it becomes a part of the fund of knowledge If this process is carried out faith fully and efficiently we will seethe next generation more proficient in some respects in the transactions of business than the present oneSAMUEL L COFFEY Warning to Tobacco Growers Now that the plants are grow ing strong in their beds and the farmers are making up their ninds as to their cpming tobacco acreage this note of warning is sounded by the Cincinnatti Post md should be seriously carefully ong and well considered by every grower The fight between the American Tobacco Company and the Burley Growers Associations growing warmer every day More than a million dollars is being spent by the tobacco trust to vreck the burley tobacco growers plan of cornering the 1905 crop of bur le yJ according to charges made by men on the Cincinnati breaks familiar with the situation and in touch with the trusts methods They assert hat the trust is spending hundreds of thousands of dollars in an effort to get the people overconfident so they will plant within the next two months such an enormous crop of white burley hat the market next fall will be over stocked and a corner impos sible Everything points to a big acreage being put out this rear The great fear is thatmany farmers each depending on his neighbor to grow the small trop will plant the large ones hemselves If enough do this hey will seal the fate of the 1905 order For if more tobacco is grown than the manufacturers vill absolutely need the corner prompters say it can be easily seen that a corner on a majority of the crop can not be effective So far as this immediate sec ion is concerned this article portrays the exact situation There is every indication that the largest crop of burley tobacco ever niown will be set out The Democrats of the First Indian district nominated Tflaj ir Menzies of Mt Vernon for Congress V Jt i AZBILLHERE Meets the Citizens at the Elks Club and Talks of Electric Line DANVILLE HAS A GOOD CHANG Mr Azbill promoter of the proposed electric line which is to be built from Creelsboro on the Cumberland river to some poin on the Q C railroad accompanied by Mr Bernard Green Secretary of the Osborne Engineering Co of Cleveland Ohio was in town Saturday night A number of citizens met them at the Elks Club where the matte of building the new electric lin was informally discussed Mr Azbill told the citizens tha he had first promised to survey the line from Perryville to Har rodsburg and on to Burgin be fore any survey could be made of the route between Danville and Perryville He said that he wa looking over the field and tha as a business proposition his company would be compelled to build the line over the route that was the best and most feasible and that so far nothing had bee n done to keep him from taking up the matter with Danville except that he is in honor bound to firs report on the Harrodsburg route He said that before finally set tling the matter a preliminary examination of both lines wouk have to be made and the ques tion of connections of freight of expense in building the line of distance of population and many other questions of importance would be laid before the company which is to finance the scheme As to rights of way he thought he would have no trouble in secur ing them as nearly every farmer is anxious for just such a line run through his place The electric lines he said embrace all the de sirable and none of the undesira ble features of a steam railway Farmers having such lines running through their places may hail interurban cars at any point desirable and their grain coal sic can be loaded and unloaded on their own premises In many instances farmers enter into lively competition as to who shall get he line instead of expecting dam igo the ro ads hrougn their places and it is expected that the right of way maybe secured the entire distance without anywhere paying a bonus We have already secured the right of way said Mr Azbil from Lebanon tq the coal fields and when the preliminary examinations are made we think we shall have no trouble in securing he Jands over which to run the road for the entire distance Mr Azbill calculated that it would cost 1000 per mile or about 10000 to have Mr Green the engineer make the prelimin tion of the line from Danville to Perryville and as the citizens hought it wise to act at once a business meeting was organized Fudge R S Nichols was called to the chair and S W Menefee vas made Secretary of the meeting and steps were taken to raise the required amount Half he amount was raised at the neeting and Messrs Winstone Wiseman A S Robertson and T 0 Miller were appointed to raise the remainder of the 100 3y public subscription which will be done at once Sheriff Sam McDowell was appointed to accompany Green and Azbill over the road and a preliminary inspection was made yesterday While nothing definite could be rained from Sheriff McDowell his morning it is safe to say hatthe visitors were favorably mpressed with the country be ween here arid Perryville as it isas fine as can be found any wnrein the Stafeva n d a fine 1 kt i 2l t T r line of railway could be built between these two points so as to meet with very few obstructions Boyle coiihty people and especial ly citizens of Danville are awat ening to the fact that they cannot afford to let this line run to Burgin or any other point and when the proper time comes they will lend all the encouragement to the movement necessary to make agoDanville Advocate Growls of a

Tucker and W W Ingram veterans in the cause thought the meeting one of the best ever held Many think these meetings contain nothing profitable tot the denominational work Had such critics attended this meeting their doubts would have been vanished In these meetings the different phases of the denominational work are considered anew and brought before the church and people of the community Great stimu lation is engendered as brethren from different sections meet and compare notes K both ministers and laymen would attend and come with something to contribute tothe interest of these meetings they would always wish to at tend Cane Valley will long feel the force of the spiritual uplift resulting from this meeting The next place of meeting is Greensburg in the month of July the plan to

one who does most to lift up his county State and township The roots of good govern ment are deep down among the good farmers of the country Money is not made on any farm very rapidly and never without plenty of good hard work which is the reason so many young men dodge the farm if possible The successful farmer will accumulate money slowly but safely and surely and he will further always see to it that his soil is not depleted but rather be made more productive each year It is said that the inhabitants of New York eat an egg apiece every day in the year which makes a total of 1405250 000 in the twelve months And among our population there is at least one woman who eats only eggs laid by young hens She has a standing order with a leading commission house for two dozen a week and pays a fancy price for them averaging about 1 a dozen the year round An exchange offers the following I wholesome advice to farmers who em ploy help on the farm Keep on the right side of your hired man Treat him well so longas he is inyour employ and if he does not deserve good treat ment or respond to it do not keep him A good hired man will appreciate good usage and kind favors and pay for them by the extra amount and better quality of his services It is courtesy to treat all men decently In the case of your hired man it is also policy and economy Be liberal with him not only at the table but give him occasionally a square day for amusement and recreation Any intelligent hired man will work harder and perform his labor better When he feels that his employer appreciates well doing
