Maud Washington county have been considerably excited and doing a good deal of talking about the death of an old man known as Tinner Smith last Friday says the Springfield Lead er The immediate cause of his death was pneumonia but some ugly rumors have been afloat since concerning an alleged at tack on the old man a few days before his death which mayor may not have had something to do with the old fellows taking off Tinner Smith was rather an odd character He was born in a little town near London England 1840 and had no relative in this country although he often spoke of a son and daughter living at his old home in England He came into the Maud neighbor hood several years ago as a traveling tinner He stayed about the place and opened a little tin shop where he did little odd jobs of repairing He seemed a quiet unassuming old fellow but had the one weakness of getting on treeb He would have these periodical sprees at drinking but fevfch thn did not seem to harm lhy one but himself He lived to himself in his little tin shop A few days before Smith died his house was entered it is said by some men three white and two negroes so the report goes and the old fellow was given a severe beating He had been on a protracted spree is the only known cause for the attack The next morning he was able to tell of the attack which had been made on him and exhibited nu merous bruises about the body some broken clubs and switches and other evidence of the visit of his alleged assailants The old fellow suffering from the effects of his spree and from the beat ing and probably from want of proper attetion took to his bed and never rallied There were and still are ugly rumors about the unfotunate occurance but no inquest was held nor investigation into the matter made The remains were buried at Camp Ground Saturday What a Change During the past 100 years steam transportation has rev olutionized the carrying trade of the world but it is destined to become the power of the

Lives of Heads of the Nation from Washing tons Time to the Present Only ten men who have held the office of president reached or surpassed Mr Clevelands present age or 68 only six exceeded it by so much as ten years and none exceeded it by quite 20 years Only ten presidents have survived their re tirement from office longer than Mr Cleveland and our of these lived to a great age says the New York Sun Washington who survived his retirement less than three years thought him self an old man when he was first made president at the age of 57 John Adams survived his retirement a quarter of a century and his son John Quincy who outlived his retirement nearly 20 years was the only president who had nearly as conspicuous a public career after oc cupying the presidency as before Monroessix years after his retirement from office were passed in comparative obscurity as a resident of this city and his dying hours were embittered by scandalous accusations in connection with Jacksons seizure of Spanish forts in Florida during the first Seminole war Polk outlived his retirement less than a year and there is every reason to sup pose that had Arthur compassed his ambition of an ejection to the presidency in 1884 he would have died early in his term for he outlived his retirement less than two year Tyler who outlived his retirement 20 years emerged from obscurity near the end of his life to preside over the vain peace convention on the eve of the civil war He afterward served in the con gress of th cjppfederate states Buchanan lived more than seven years after his retirement and took the oppor LUnity to write what was in effect a de fense of his administration Jefferson and Jackson wfg the only presidents who exercised a really powerful influence over party councils after their permanent retirement from pubTiQ office though Van Buren was an active politician as long as he had hope ofre nominationat the hands of any party Johnson was the only retired president to enter the United States senate and the younger Adams was the only one to serve in the house of representatives Cleveland and Harrison have been the only retired presidents to be conspicu ousely successful in private business It is not generally known that Mr Cleveland still serves as consulting counsel in law cases in which his experience in the office of president may be supposed to have given him special qualifications as an adviser His fees in such cases are large as were those of Mr Harrison as a legal adviser and a lecturer of constitutional law CLERKS ARE NOT OWNERS Therefore the Cash CustomersKick- IsBegistered to No Effect I shoul l think theyd show more con sideration to a good cash customer ex claimed the shopper who had just had a wordy encounter over an exchange slip with the floorwalker relates the New York Press If they would take the findriIybooksThats just the trouble its only on the delivery books and not among their charge customers But I should think the firm would want a big cash trade It does but firm and employes look at It differently When a woman says Charge please the clerk sits up and takes notice The woman who has an account is the woman who can most easily complain of discourtesy and inattention on the part of a clerk The value of her trade is known to the firm She prefaces her complaint with the words As you know Ive had an account here ever since the store was opened The cash customer represents a single sale She cannot prove how valuable her trade is to the house and the clerk knows it Ive watched the rule work again and again It almost discourages one in the selfimposed task of paying cash But on the other hand objected the tired shopper if a woman pays cash she buys more carefully more provi dently That is just the point smiled her Wise companion uIt is the woman who buys improvidently sometimes foolish ly commands the respect and inci dentally the attention of the clerks Food Courses in Ireland The etiquette of the fashionable

general disposition to review the work of the South during that period Professor Albert Bushnell Hart of Harvard Uni versity gives his judgment that outside the thriving seaboard belt from Richmond to New Orleans the South is making little economic advances andin some cases must be going backward The TimesDispatch on the contrary prints these figures which tell a different tale- Compare significant and indi cative facts of the South of 1904 not including Deleware or Missouri in the South with similar facts of the whole country in 1860 as follows UNITED STATES 1860 Population 31433000 Bank

rule and the subse quent handicap of oneparty dom inance it is surprising to note the recuperative energy of the South a marked proof of the reserve power and indomitable spirit of the Saxon Progress is not to be measured in economic terms alone Difficulties as well as dis tance enter into the calculation of course traversed Regarded in this light the South has done marvelous work since her sons stacked their arms at Appomat tox The progress of the South has been atmospheric as well as economic Some of the large as pects of her advanceit is my pur pose to set down rather by way of reassuring ourselves for the tasks yet remaining to be done LNATIONAL INTEGRATION The things that will perhaps strike future historians as the most noteworthy in the South of the last forty years is its sane and substantial growth in national sentiment The reverse might have been expected To this ben eficial result many causes have contributed such as the primordial downright attachment to the Union on the part of thethought ful people of the South the gen erous treatment in the main of the defatedsection by the North the very heroism of the defense which theConfederacy had made and theperception by clearhead ed Southern men that wisdom and pariotism pointed unmistaka r Ibly to complete reconciliation be ween the estranged sections of cnis giant nationr The chieftain in this construct aye

believe wrote Gen Lee in 1865 it to be the duty of every one to unite in the resto aation of the country and the reestablishment of peace and harmony Mightily has Lees spirit wrought for complete recon ciliation on the part of the South ern people So much so that I feel confident in saying that nowhere in this country will youth be found more loyal to the unity of the national life than the South They are Americans in very truth EDUCATIONAL ADVANCE There were three Souths and any statement about one of these strata may be inapplicable to the others The ruling class of great landowners were in most in stances admirably educated while the poor whites were shy of pau per schools and the slaves re mained in ignorance Since the war the South has undertaken the momentous work of educating all her children whether rich or poor white or black Next to na tional integration I place the edu tional task of the South Not on ly did shattered colleges cannon riddled have to be rebuilt not only did the system of public schools have to be launched not only did separate schools have to be provided for the two races on out soil but also and chiefly the basal conception of education had to be reconstructed Hitherto education was regarded as the privilege of the few It was made the duty of all Hitherto education had meant culture It was made to yield industrial pow er political sanity and social ser viceThe bookroom begins to be converted into the workshop or forum The traditional education of the Saxon proved in some respects unsuited to the African Different armor was needed for Saul and David Hence arose the necessity for the vast experiment to determine the best training for the negro an experiment still going forward under hopeful aus pices Such were some of the the perplexities in the educational work which the South faced in 1865 We have reason to rejoice both in the courage with which our fathers took up these arduous duties and also the cooperation shown by the North in the furth erance of this vital enterprise While much remains to be done we should be heartened by the substantial results already achieved and by the waxing pur pose to make good for every child within our borders the inalienable rights of light and love In their progressive spirit the schools of the South register the construct ive statecraft of our people The strength of the educational revival in Virginia is well evinced by the extent of the May cam paign in which county mass meetings will be addressed by scores of prominent speakers DEMOCRACY AND DISCUSSION Vain would be any attempt to estimate the progress made by the South since the war if it failed to take note of the suffrage reform with a view of restoring discussion to its rightful place in a democracy Discussion is as essential to democracy as the circulation of blood is to the body It was intended that we should rttbypublicopinion have to be enlightened frank and assertive This c a n never be true where one party has undis7 puted sway where timid voters are frightened by the dangling of the skeleton in the closet and especiailyjwhere race feeling obliterates economic and political issues The South like Gulliver has been held to the ground by the stealthy cords of the onepar typolitician unpatriotic as he is unve and as selfish as he is t Jr1rfMi r I Thecarpetbagger a foreigner feeding upon prey The demagogue is aJudasbe traying his own with a kiss But already the day is dawning men begin to feel the necessity ofa healthful clash of opinion people are unstopping their ears to catch the brave voices of the arena voters no longer wish to leap like sheep to please the wily poiti cian all now see that it is a mans right to form an independ ent judgment and to order ones course according to the dictates of reason and concience instead of the empty platform of the pot- house politician The emancipa tion of the Saxon means progress for the South and integyity for the nation These are the large proofs of the advance which the South is making C S M Thumps in Pigs t A subscriber at Lebanon Ky D B G asks for a remedy or treatment for thumps say ing that his pigs are affected and the remidies he has tried have done no good As usual he gives as little information to base treatment upon as possiblefailing to give age and condition of pigs and what he has tried This is one disease that the authorities of the Bureau of Animal Industry dodge perhaps because it has such a plebian name or again because it baffles all their efforts to define or remedy Nevertheless all farmers are likely to come in contact with it and sometimes as much loss is occa sioned from thumps as from any other disease especially in the South and West Jacob Biggie who published his Swine Book in 1899 seems to have had experience with thjs malady and he says This dis ease is quite common espeeial ly in the early Spring and is exceedingly hard to handle when once contracted More can be done to prevent than to cure You visit the sow and litter in the morning to give them their accustomed feed and you notice that one of the fattest does not leave his bed You compel him to go out which he does some what reluctantly and you will notice that his sides move with a peculiar jerking motion and if allowed he will soon return to his bed Rest assured he has thumps and nine chances to one he will die It is caused by fatty accumulations about the breast which intefere with its action and the lungs work hard pump for dear life to keep up the hearts action to send the blood through the body The pig is faint because of feeble circulation and he is cold and soon dies from exhaustion- To prevent thumps get into the pen several times a day and hustle the little pigs about also stint the sow so that she will give less milk Pigs when they are thin in flesh rarely have thumps Thumps rarely occur among pigs farrowed in fine weather but does quite frequently occur among pigs farrowed in the ear ly Spring Guard against it by compelling both sow and litter to exercise in the open air v The writer above seems to overlook the fact that thumps will often attack shoats after weaning time We agree that treatment is difficult b1twe think new bedding and removal to new quarters will be advan tageous in affecting a cure or more properly in lrev Jting the spread of the trouble Improve the

1905 at 3 oclock P M the death angel visited the home of Mr and Mrs Vails and took away from them a loved one their daughter She was twentyfour years of age and was converted eight years ago uniting with the Baptist church She had lived a devoted Christian life She only livedpine days after she was taken sick Her death was caused by heart failure and though every thing was done for her recovery that was possible it was of no avail She bore her suffering with patience and when the end came her spirit quietly and peacefully passed out of the body and joined the angels in heaven where she will know no more suffering We would say to her bereaved parents weep not for dear Bettie for soon we will meet her where we will part no more She had a vision of heaven about fortyeight hours before she died Her brother had been taken away from them about four years ago She said Mother I saw sweet brother ard ray home and it was such a beautiful place BO peaceful and so bright not a wave of trouble but all was peace and happiness Oh how I long to be there Dear father and mother dont weep for me for I am going home to live forever Sister Bettie had such a sweet disposition she was kind and loving to those around her an obedient and devoted child to her parents and loyal to her church ever ready to lend a helping hand to those in need She spoke often of her sisters in Christ and urged upon them to hold out faithfully and with her gain a crown at Gods right hand During her illness she expressed her love for all more than ever before She called sinners to her bedside and plead with them to repent while they had time and opportunity We know it is sad to give up dear Bettie from our midst but it was the Lords own good time to take her His will be done and while it is our loss it is her eter nal gain Tne fuIieral services were held on Sunday afternoon at the Baptistchurch by her pastor Rev J Leslie Adkms A large crowd was present to pay their last respects to the deceased af ter which the body was laid to rest in the village cemetary at Russell SpringsWeeping ones put your trust in the Lord for it is he alone can heal all sorrow We extend our deepest sympathy to the parents and friends and may God richest blessing rest upOn them all A light is from our household gone A voice we loved is still A place is vacant in our home Which never can be filled We can not tell who next may fall Beneath thy chastening rod One must be first but let us allI Prepare to meet our God Peaceful be thy silent slumber Peaceful in thy grave so low Thou no more will join our number Thou no more our song will know Yet again we hope to meet thee When the day of life is fled And in heaven with joyti greet thee Where no farewelltearsare shed AFRIEND Russell Springs Ky Man1 Unreasonableness

in sections it being divided by five and a section at a time sold In this way the farm brought 19800 It was then offered as a whole and at once the bid ding became spirited there being a number of timber men and manufactur ers who were anxious to secure it To bystanders it became evident in a few minutes that the purchaser would have to pay a long price to get it The bidders who held out the longest were Jas T Page this place John P Hanna Cincinnati and W A McLean representing the McLean Lumber Company Buffalo New York The last bid Mr Page made if we remember correctly was 3710OO00Mr Hanna added another iM and the bid of 37200 was cried for some minutes and finally Mr McLean raised his bid to 37500gett- ing the property This is the best timbered farm in Adair county and has been known to lumber men at a distance for a number of years It is cov- eredwith oak poplar chestnut ash and there is also some walnut Our readers will understand that it was the valuable timber that sold

The men who talk the loudest about politics being dirty are the men who are too lazy to help clean things- A man may burn so much midnight oil that he has none to oil the days machinery The man who starts out looking for trouble usually finds it just about to enter his own door When a man begins to imagine that he doesnt look his age it is a sign that he is growing old The man who has no business of his own is a mighty poor man to engage to to attend to your business- A man may buy the reputation of being a philanthropist but he can not buy the real philanthropists character- If a man

matter what its nature may be The manner in which the business is run is invariably the guage by which the influx of money may be measured but in the face of all the above which are well established principles the IIowmgauthentic reasons prove beyond a possibility of a doubt thatthe management of a news = paper is an exception tothe rule What an exageration It has been disproved hundreds of times What a whopper It is a clean case of our fancy it doesnt take money to run a newspaper and whoever thinks it does is sadly mis taken for it can be run without any arbegging concern a high way robber and any other old thing you want to call it The newspaper is a child of the jair a creature of a dream it can go onand on when other concerns would be in the hands of a receiver and would be up with cobwebs iii thewindows It takes a whole lot of wind to run anewspaper It takes a scintillating acrobatic im agination and a half dozen shirts and an annual railroad pass But money No no no Whoever was so foolish as to think it would take money to run a newspaper in Cqlumbia especially Kind words are the medi um that do the business for the editor and correspondent kind words and in vitations to social gatherings every once and awhile and an occasional bug gy ride on Sunday afternoon When you see an editor with cash watch him Never give an editor mon ey for he might pay his debts and that would never do Then when you final ly come to shuffle off this mortal coil after having stood aroundfor years and sneered at the newspaper man and his paper be sure and have your wife send in for three or four copies of the paper by one of your weeping children- and when she reads the touching notice of your death forewarn her to neglect to send 15 or 20 cents to the editor It might overwhelm the poor ellowand make him feel rich The editor knows it all and he only wants your heart felt thanks You may say all the harsh things about him you want to but dont worry about the editor He will get out his paper allright and stand up for you when you run for office besides and he will also make a great blow about your daughters weddingwhen- it comes offLhe will tell a half dozen lies before he gets through writingan article about the happy event But he is not even thanked for that The country editor will get along the Lord only knows how but he will get there somehow Its Too Often The Case That you spend too much time criti cising and too little time helping That your boasted plainness of speech is merely boorishness That you content yourself with giving advice instead of lending a helping hand That you are planning such big things for tomorrow that you forget to attend to todays duties That you grumble at the wrongs that abound on all sides and fail to make any effort at righting them That you attend to the business of others without warrant and neglect your own business without excuse That you waste time envyingnthe man who has a fortune and fail tamake use of what lies at your hand That you yearn for reforms withouty giving any assistance to those who are striving earnestly to bring them about That you waste a lot of time denouncing politics as dirty business and neglect to goto t primaries and purify itr f That you wish you could given to save the heathen and forget to speak the kind jrorcl that might help your neighbor f That your boasted optimism is

BABY POUND ONCHILDS ST The sad plight of an unfortunate girl came to light late yes terday afternoon when a colored woman told Officers Britton and Herroh that if they would inves tigate they could probably un ravel a deep mystery at the home of Mary Dean on Chiles street one block from Main Being pressed by the officers for an ex planation she said that last Sun day she heard the cries of an in fant in Mary Deans home This so aroused her curiosity that she b watched her and on Wednesday afternoon when Mary left the house temporarily she slipped in went up stairs and discovered a dead baby in one of the rooms The two officers immediately sought Judge Corn for advice and then all three went to the Dean home After several vigo rous kndeksthey were admitted and found a rather pretty woman lying on a bed and suffering muc- hI in Mary was asked if there was a baby in the house and she answered that there Was a child up stairs The three officials repaired to the iper floor and there a most horrifying spectacle met their gaze for they found a dead baby boy of large sfee lying on- t top of an old bureau With a dirty rag spread over Its face I The rag was removed showing an ugly brue on the head of the little Qn Mary Stated that the I wolftan came to her home some Weeks ago aud that the thuld was born dead last Sunday and had been placed on the bureaus wkfcre it had remained for the four days The woman gave her name as Stella Royes that she was nineteen years of age and an orphan and that her home was in Jes mine county and that a man flamed Ross was the father of tier child

brings 2 i j XJ r 1c i j ii into prominence those classes of heroism which are ignored because they are common It re minds the public that there are heroes in every neighborhood of a city and on every rural road side heroes who are self sacrifi cing and courageous who are tordutyHeroism is mannood The he ro is a man On the battle field or in a sea fight daring is admired because bravery is manly courage The military uniform is the insignia of the national spirit and for this rea son draws respect toward the wearer But the ordinary citi zen who obeys his countrys laws lives according to his

recent decision reached by the 4post office department in regard tothe rural route mail boxes It has been a custom for people living along the routes to leave notes papers communications etc from one another in the mail boxes so that their neighbors can get them when they wish An Indiana rural route carrier confiscated a few of these which he found in the boxes and sent them to Washington for advice from the government The route patrons got together and hired an attorney to see what could be done about the matter They ontended that inasmuch as the farmers bought their boxes themselves the boxes were their own private property and they might do as they chose about the matter The govern ment however decided differ ently and told them that all matter deposited in those boxes must bear regular postage rates and they were classed simply as boxes rented at a post office are classed The action of the carrier in confiscating the matter found in the boxes was sustain led forestsI Is

those who have figured in the Kentucky end of it It is thought one of the many cases that come under the eyes of the Special Pension Ex aminer day after day The names in the present case are withheld from the fact that it is against the rules of the Government to divulge names pending the in vestigation of such cases Nearly forty years ago a man probably 35 years of age down in Larue county Ky bade his wife and five little children a long farewell to takeup arms for his coun try When his arms were stacked for the last time it seemed that he had forgotten his loved ones back in the old Kentucky home He drifted to Nashville and there a year or two after the war had closed he married an other woman The years rolled by and the wife and children in Kentucky Heard no tidings of the fathers Twenty years ago think ing that her husband had been dead for years she applied for a pension As in all cases of the kind when the application was made the Government began an investigation to see if the man was really dead The pension agent located hint in Edgefield Junction near Nashville A let ter was sent back to the Kentucky women stating that her husband was alive Her children were then about grown While the children were apprised of the fact that their father was living the wife brokenhearted in her grief never asked the Govern ment where her husband was Hadshe made inquiry she would have been made acquainted with his whereabouts The children often longed to see the father little dreaming that lie was with in a few hours ride of them Five years ago the broken heart ed but faithful wife died She had lived to seedier children mar ned one daughter now residing in Louisville A few months cagoI a woman living in Edgefield Junction Tema applied for a pension as the widow ofthe same man whose Larue county wife had been refused a pension from the fact that he was still living This put in execution another in vestigation Only a day or two ago a Special Pension EXminer from Louisville went to Larue county and began hunting up the mans former Kentucky family The eldest son was found lie told the Pension Examiner that iatherland aminer told him that his father died last October in Edgefield Junction In the possession of the Larue county inan was an old daguerreotype ofids father taken shortly before heleft for the war It shows a man of strf n g physique with a heavy black beard This picture which has been held by the family for near ly half a eritury was veI to the Pension Examiner who will take it to nashville to be used in the investigation The question is whether the man obtained a i divorce from the Kentucky wif el before he married the Tennessee Won If a divorce was ob tained legally under the laws of Tennessee the Tennessee widow is entititha pension Ifit is rl I si V V r m H i1 i5 Sf lil W liSrl t fff AsSm t f S4 A i proved that no divorce was ob tained then he was never legally married to the Tennessee woman and she is not entitled to a

a k e a mountain out of a omparatively small mole hill Some days ago Mr M 0 Win frey pres of the Kentucky Edu cational Association sent out pos tal cards bearing the pictures of Alton Brooks Parker astride a rooster and Mr Roosevelt on the back of a coon on their way to Mammoth Cave The pict ures were supposed to represent the general character of the movement toward that point at the time of the associations an nual convention but it has pleas ed the class of critics referred to construe the card as an attack by Mr Winfrey on Mr Roosevelt and the negro The position as sumed has so poor a basis either of good nature or sense as to tall for no comment were it not for the fact that the influence of R association which is of such practical benefit to the State is in danger of injury For thatreason Mr Winfrey has seen fit to give full and satisfactory explanation of his urpose which had as Ms sole object the adver tisemet of the convention and has stated that a copy of the card was mailed both to Mr Roosevelt and Judge Parker It is not possible that Dfio feratswill construe the pictorial representation of the Judge as meaning that he is riding down the Democratic party and the ex planation of Mr Winfrey should not be needed to convince all fair minded Republicans that thecoon on which Mr Roosevelt is mounted does not represent a down treden race It is in fact a new use of the old Whig campaiIemblem and so far as lion of courtesy goes places Mr Roosevelt and Ms steed on an equal footing with Parker and the rooster Judging by there suIt of the rice Mr Roosevelt and the

that the aggressive element of the democratic party is getting together in ac tive preliminary work for the great battle of 1908 It is well if this is so If the party is to accomplish anything the aggressive ele ment must accomplish it We tried it last election with a ticket that stood for practically nothing that is democratic cook ed up especially for the republi can eastand lost out hope lesslyMr Bf an saysuthe party does net heed reorganization it onfy nfeeis to get back to the people that there may be united harmonious effort tar the cam paign of 1908 Get back to tk people thats the proper think to do When the democratic party gets back to the peoplestands for men in whom the people have confidence and advocates the principles in which the people feel deep interest then the peo pIe will stand by and support the party but until then they will scatter and at election time refuse to be counted Itis better to stand for what Iwe believe to be right and meet honorably than to pander to what we know to be wrong and be absolutely crushed as We were in the last election Past experience should teqh democratic leaders the follY of of trying any more all things to 75allor
