truth that there was no limit to the mistakes of life that they were like the drops of the ocean or the sands on the shore in number but it is well to be accurate It is a great mistake to set up our own standard of right and wrong and judge people accordingly- To measure the enjoyment of others by our own To expect uniformity of opinion in this world To look for judgment and experience in youthTo to mold all dispositions alike To yield to immaterial trifles To look for perfection in our own actionsTo ourselves and others with what cannot be remedied Not to alleviate all that needs alleviation as far as lies in our power Not to make allowances for the infirmities of others To consider everything impossible that we cannot perform- To believe only what our finite minds can grasp To expect to be able to understand everythingSelected n Judge Cochran What the decision of Judge Cochran will be after hearing the argument on the application for the removal of the Powers case from the Scott Circuit Court to the United States District Court for Eastern Kentucky is necessa rily a matter of conjecture but one thing is certain his decision will be in accord with his ideas of justice and an impartial interpretation of the law Few Federal appointments made in Kentudky have brought to the bench or to public office a man of greater ability finer character or truer conception of duty regardless of political partisan or personal influences than has the ap pointment of Judge Cochran In all trials where he has presided he has been the Judge first and a party man afterward Efforts to prejudice him against the accused on the ground that they w re active Democrats have en ded invariably in failure and deserved censure for their authors Cases brought before him are assured of tri al on their merits and a decision in ac cordance with the weight of testimony offered Residents for the Western District for Kentucky may have some difficulty in recognizing this picturelof a Federal Judge as true to life but fortunately in the case of Judge Cochran there can be no question of the fidelity of the like nessLouisville Times Land of Twins and Triplets Scotland is the land of twins and Triplets holding a long lead over her sister countries in this matter In twelve months no fewer than 1625 mothers gave birth to twins and 25 amongIthe few countries of Europe where the proportion of male babies is greater than of females Striking an average it is found that there are about 104 males to every 100 females but the surplus of grown up girls is neverthe less large as so many men

snake oh the farm of Mr E T Keltner near Gradyville one day last week says the Columbia Spectator Mr Keltner was sitting in his room when he heard an unusual noise in his cornfield He looked out and saw a flock of crows flying excitedly about near the ground and occasionally darting at something lying on the ground The crows did not notice his approach and when a few steps fm them hey j d yJ k f r l discovered a large cow snake striking at the crows when they chanced to get near enough He shot the snake and the crows flew away The following day he was again attracted by the same noise and told his nephew Roland Pile to take the n- and go out and put a stop to the racket The young man when in firing distance fired at the flock and one fell to the groundHe to pick it up and dis covered that the same shot had killed a cow snake much larger than the one Mr Keltner had killed the day before The two battles had occurred exactly on the same spotr Kentucky Crops The past week has been warm with plenty of moisture and the result has been beneficial to crops in Kentucky according to the weekly report issued this morning from the local Weather Bureau planting has been somewhat retarded by rain In regard tb the various cereals fruits and vegetables the report has this to say Wheat continues improving and is most promising It has begun to head out in some of the Western and South ern countries where there is also some complaint of rust Corn planting continues industriously the crop has been mostly planted in some sections and only about half so in others There is some complaint of cut worms where the early planted has come up Oats doing nicely though growing a little slowly in some sections Rye is promising and grasses and meadows are in excellent condition Tobacco plants in the main are still doing finely and are plentiful ex cept in some sections of the western part of the State Cutworms however are doing considerable damage and reports of damage from this source are becoming more general Some few plants have been set out while generally ground is being prepared for trans planting which promises to be well under way in a week or ten days Hemp has been sown and is coming up nicelyThe situation continues very good improving if anything over last week Peaches will probably be a short crop Strawberries are ripening in the southern counties the crop va

each morning wonder how It happens that such a heavy accumulation of dust should confront them on counters and desks and other furni ture If they pass in the night says the Boston Transcript and see the great clouds that roll up and enter every cre vice the particles working their way around even the closest joints their won der would disappear Yet dust is a for midable foe not only to comfortbut to health It is freighted with all kinds of peril It is the medium by means of which the microbes of disease distribute themselves It provides the millionso wings upon which they fly to the points of least resistance But the public streets are not the only sources of discomfort and the public sweepers are not the only offenders The housewifes broom multiplied many times is an evil though a necessary one or at least it has been so and the time is now at hand when it Is a force to be dreaded more than ever The housecleaning season approaches Not merely the floors and carpets to which more or less thorough attention is given from day to day but the whole household comes in for its annual or semiannual attack The accumulations of months are to be disturbed and set in motion and fortunate is the household that can escape the ordeal without anything worse than an extra tax on muscles and nervesAny triumph of invention that will bring us nearer to a dustless paradise is to be fervently welcome and it is grati fying to know that such inventions are not only among the potential features of progress but are coming more and more into practice and general use What blessings dustless streets dustless houses dustless hotels and dustless sleeping cars would be And we can have them These cleansing devices will doubtless when perfected and generally established remove more dirt at less cost than the armies of leisurely street sweepers that now crowd our cities Ac cording to official figures the cities of the country expend annually 20000000 for streetcleaning and even then they are not kept clean Yet some cities have adopted a device that it is claimed will sprinkle sweep collect and carry away under cover the dirt from 8000 square feet of pavement an hour without dust These machines are of varying sizes and capacities some drawn by two horses some by three and some of the motor type representing many horsepower wTiais the matter Funny IsiT m Mans drunk when hes full bottles drunk when its empty Mighty funny man aint drunk when hes empty bottle aint drunk when its full says a Washington Star writer Where does the drunk come from Give it up cant be explained speck it growed like Topsy Perhaps the man drinks the whisky In the bottle No no he dont the whisky is in the bottle already Ah yes the man drinks the whisky out of the bottle Perhaps so but if he is a gentleman perhaps he drinks it out of a tumbler Of course he pours the whisky out of the bottle in theNo no you are wrong not any other whisky that is out of the bottle we mean the whisky in the bottle Well he pours the whisky in the bot tle out of the bottle in the tumbler Yes that is tautologically correct But you need not keep trying to trip a fellow up so often I am not trying to trip you up only to keep you from falling into mis takes You are a nice one if you dont try to trip me up you trip me down and that is one way to keep a fellow from falling into anything But I bear no grudge Go on Well the man fills the tumbler full but he dont drink the tumbler full by a long shot But if he wants to get fly tight dont he drink the tumbler full By no meanshe drinks the tum bler empty And this expression the tumbler empty placing the ad jective after the noun isa sort of foreign idiom which translated Into English means he drinks the empty tumbler Oh I see now what you mean When a man tries to drain his glass a second time when there is nothing in it he tries to drink the empty tumbler fdr there is nothing else there for him to drink I never before understood what men were trying to do And finally the Annapolis cadets have never settled the question whether the man drinks his whisky up or drinks it down Bird Pest in Australia The English starlings introduced into Australia

Solution c H SERIOUS PROBLEM T o SOLVE Expectation has been piqued SouthandChina seas Many days ago a great naval battle was supposed to be only a few hours away The days have passed and are lengthening into weeks and yet not a gun has been fired The circumstances emphasizes what we remarked at the beginning that the battle would be fought where and when the Japanese commander determined What his determination is he knows It is not certain that even one other man in the world does But what the world does know is that the navalbcommander for all but a hundred years rests upon Admiral Togo Not quite a hundred years for the century since Trafalgar will not be completed until October next He knows that the fleet opposed to him is in the dominant element of naval warfare superior to his own He knows too that if he should be beaten Japan would be in awful peril of being beaten in the war All that had been won at Port Arthur and Liao Yang and Mudken would be lost Given those factors the problem which that grim silent captain has in mind and hand may be perceived To vanquish a fleet that is stronger than his own without incurring for his fleet any appreciable risk There must be no risk of the great battle ships But it maybe there will be something worse than riskthe sending to prac tically sure destruction of many of the smaller craft Some years ago a distinguished naval writer Captain Bacon of the British na vy in Brassys Annual fore casts a situation like the present and discussed means of solving it Before the general battle comes on the fleet which has the fewer battleships but the more torpedo boats and cruisers must in some way reduce to its own level the heavy fighting strength of the enemy How By the sacrifice of ships of one class to produce equality or super iority in a larger class by reduc tion of the enemys number That is to say Togo should send to destruction a score of torpedo boats or half a dozen cruisers if thus he could destroy two or three Russian battle ships and reduce the odds of seven to five against him to even terms or to something in his favor The night before the battle therefore Capt Bacon would have the destroyers sent in at top speed to practically sure de struction let loose like hell hounds to tear into the enemy s fleet torpedoing ramming de stroying and using every nerve knot to destroy and so pave the way for the morrows victory We do not know whether that is Togos plan We do not know that his fleet is adapted to such work He las probably some dozens of swift torpedo boats and torpedo boat destroyers anyone of which might be sent to the bottom by a sixpound shot but anyone of which might also send the mightiest battleship to the bottom with a touch of its deadly torpedo He has too a dozen protected cruisers of from 19 to 23knot speed and one of which couldjyith a welldirected torpe do de oy a battleship as surely as the battleship could destroy the cruiser with its 13inch guns Imagination is beggared at the thought of a dozen cruisers and a scorerniore ofdectroyers rushingat midnight into the heart of the Russian fleet reckless as a Malay running amuck r Jt i l x ti3 f fi ITV HVfv i t vJIs WtrJ expecting death and even courting it if only they can themselves strike home before they die We know too that for precisely that sort of desperate work there are no people in the world more fit or ready than the men of Togos fleet and no better suited to such tactics than the narrow seas which Rojestvenskys armada is now approaching says the N Y Tribune The Things ijv Washington Seldom have so many contro verted questions demanding the Presidents attention arisen in a dull season as during the hiSpre sent absence and announcement that he has decided to curtail his trip and make a quick return journey starting on May 8 has occasioned no surprise h ere This situation is in part due to President Roosevelts attitude in keeping a hand on so many sub jects himself The controversy between Minister Bowen and As sistant Secretary of State Loomis calls for early attention It has for some time been assumed here that Bowen would be relieved The administration has been dis satisfied with his course at many stages and especially his seem ing desire to stand constantly in the limelight It has been believed that such charges as may have been made against Loomis were designated in part to show that many of Bowers troubles were inherited from Loomis as a minister to Venezuela or at least were due to his direction while assistant secretary of State Castro dislikes Loomis and Bow en equally andwould omit no ef fort to embroil them further It is probable that other diplomatic changes in South America too long delayed already will be part ofa reorganization which the President will effect on his return He has a friendly con troversy to settle at Panama be tween Shonts and Taft regadr ing the rates which the govern ment shall charge on its Panama railroad Shonts desires to main trin the existing status substan tailly and the railroad interest are working strongly on that side Tafts idea was to run the Panama at remunerative rates regardless of how it might effect transcontinental business The effort to secure peace be tween Russia and Japan upon which President Roosevelt and President Loubert are taking a leading part may soon

Jt1 i k t r P a CALEB POWERS PLEA i Court Will Not Consider the Motion Until all the Record- is Betore Him MAY BE SUBMITTED D IN CHAMBERS Special to The Louisville Times In the United States Circuit Court which convened at London May the 8th District Atterney R D Hill produced a transcript of the Powers case from the Scott Circuit Court and moved that the case be docketed in this court To this Attorney General Hays objected on the behalf of the State with a brief argument C J Bronston followed for the Com monwealthwith a short speech objecting to the filing and con tended that in the face of the pa pers there was nothing to give the court jurispiction or warrant the filing Judge Cochran ruled that the transcript be filed and the case docketed but this of itself did not settle the ques tion of jurisdiction The court then asked the at torneys what they desired done with the case Mr Hill stated that in order to make the issue he presumed the State desired to remand the case back to the Cir cuit Court The court said he would treat the case as ifsuch motion had been made if the at torneys for the State desired Mr Bronston replied that they did not desire the case so treated Mr Hill then said if such a motion was not contended for the defendant moved the court to issue a writ of habeas corpus cum causa and have the United States Mar shal take charge of Powers and bring him into court The prose cution then asked until 130 p m to decide what course they would take and thw was granted by the courtIt understood that attorneys for the State will at that time argue the contesting the right of the court to take jurisdiction At torneys for Powers present are Judge J C Simms of Bowling Green RD Hill and R C Kin kead Louisville Gov Richard Yates Springfield Ill SudgeH C Howard Paris and Col D K Rawlings London Mr Hill said that the Clerk of the Scott Circuit Court hadnot delivered them a complete record of the case and asked permission to file the remainder of the record later This was granted When court met at 130 p in Attorney General Hays produced and offered to file a written motion to have the court refuse to take jurisdiction in the case and have the court set aside the order docketing the case and filing a transcript R D Hill and other attorneys for the defendant objected to the motion and the objection brought up the main issue I Mr Hill contended that the petition had been in effect filed for removal to the Scott Cir cuit Court but admitted that it was only offered bust refused by courtOFUTHER ACTION DEFERRED During the course of the argu ment by the attorneys on both sides that certain material parts of the transcript of the Powers case had not been coppied by Clerk Scott of the Circuit Court on account of lack of time since the petition was filed last Wedn esday the court ruled that since the defendants attorneys desire to have all the record before the court except the bill of evidence the case shall Jte docketed the partial transcript filed and the caspassed ittti the remainder of therecordc procured and filed The motion Jy the prosecution toohave tie order filing the partial transcript and docket i 1i 4 4I trr iI rldt f s r4cr s ing the case entered this morn ing set aside and was overruled The motion offered by the defense for a writ of habeas corpus cum causa was passed until the re mainder of the record filed and the case argued futher Attorneys for the defense are to serve notice on those for the state when they will be ready to file the remainder of record If this is not done here this week the court will hear the matter in chambers at home in Maysville next week The question of jur isdiction is not to be decided un til the case is finally heard on the complete record minus the bill of evidence Pennsylvania Justice During the progresg of the Goebel conspiracy trials the Ken tucky courts have been harshly and unjustly criticised by ceatain Philadelphia papers which have criednot prosecution but per secution If the case of the State of Pennsylvanis vs Kate Edwards and Samuel Greason may be taken as an example of the leniency of Pennsylvania courts our Philadelphia contem po raries may be excused for cav iling at the attempts of prose cuting officers to secure the riged enforcement of the law in Kentucky r It will be recalled that Kate Edwards a white woman who had long sustained illicit relations with a negro murdered her hus band when it became impossible longer to conceal her guilt The negro paramour Greason was an alleged accomplice Both defend ants were sentenced to be hung Several thousand sentimental women in Ohio Pennsylvania and other Northern States petitioned the Governor of Penn sylvania for a commutation of the womans sentence making much of the fact that the contemplated hanging would leave the mu latto child motherless Clemen cy was very naturally refused but the day before the execution the woman adopted the plan of confessing that she killed her husband unaided The confes sion exhonerating the negro op erated to secure a reprieve and Judge Ermentrout has just grant ed a new trial The following excerpt from a dispatch taken from Reading Penn tells the story This means that Mrs Ed wards probably will be spared to tessif y at the new trial The woman who should have been hanged for the murder will be spared as a witness The man exhonerated by her confes sion will in all probability be acquitted in court The natural consequences are that the negro the white woman and the little mulatto baby will live happily ever afterward

4 REV S G SHELLY The following resolutions were adopted by the Columbia District Conference at Marrowbone Whereas this is Rev S G Shellys fourth year as presiding elder and by the law of the church his term in the dis trict will close with this conference year Resolved First that we express our high appreciation of him and the work he has accomplished for the district We recognize in him an aggressive and capable leader a consecrated and skilled laborer hi the Masters vine yard and model Christian gentlemen 4whose uniform courtesy and brotherly kindness have endeared him to preachers and people alike His dilligent at tention to every interest of the cburch and his record in meeting every quarterly conference during the quadrenium exemplify not only his selfsacrificing loyalty to duty but his personal devo tion to this his native district Resolved Second that we also recog nize and appreciate the service Sister Shelly has rendered and the noble work that has been accomplished through her untiring efforts both in the local church at Columbia and as District Secretary of the Womans Foreign Missionary Society She had labored with indomitable zeal and fidelity contribubting by her presence and personal supervi sion throughout the district to its rapid increase in Missionary Zealand activity Resolved Third that wherever their lot may be cast during the coming year our best wishes earnestprayers will follow them that they may be crowned with heavens richest blessings here and in Glory hereafter F E LEWIS T L HULSE W E CHOMAS RfllLWRY NEWS Interest in the Railway project has been stimulated during the past few weeks by the visit and inspection of the proposition by the engineering expert Mr Bernard L Green whose report is now in the hands of the President of the company and is shortly to be taken up by the Directors for considerationI and decision as to the r taken It would be premature to give out this report in advance of itssiib mission to those forwhomit is intended y but we are reliably informed that the report is as favorable as the most sani guine could expect provided those cally interested shall be willing to the very reasonable demands meetI them Just what these demands are in the way of subscriptions of stock and purchase of bonds by local investors we cannot at present say but we are given to understand that the proposition must come to the financial people completely surveyed and entirely free from expense or cost to them for franchises rights of way or real estate required This was Ito have been expected but it empha sises the necessity for a liberal poilcy on thepart of land owners along the route and for prompt action on the part of our citizens in instant compliance with this part of the demand Men differ honestly in their views about such things We give a notable1n stance in point A worthy citizen did not see it to be his interest to give the right of way through his lands which are timber lands of the best quality Recently these lands have been sold to other parties who have signified a wil lingness to subscribe 10000 to secure the road Of course the right of way will be given Heroic Deed Rey Martin D

XDowntoGehenaorupto the throne He travels the fastast who travels alone Kipling WHY dont the men propose why dont the men propose is the refrain of a quaint old song written many years ago- Evidently the vexed question why old bachelors remain bach elors is one that has agitated the generaI 1terthough itmay be from choice many reasonspub lic opinion allows her but one and that is lack of opportuniy to mar ry Public opinion however deals more generously with men than withwomen and man is allowed any reason he pleases for his celi bacyAsk any old bachelor why he has never married He will give you a string of reasons as long as your arm the first of which will be that he could not find the right woman He will directly ignore the fact he has been particularly hard to suitAn old bachelor is ten times more forlorn than an old maid He is a square peg in a round hole A woman can adapt herself to her surroundings and fit cosily into any cherished posessions about her arid make things home like But the bachelor unless he lives at home ekes outa miserable ex istence in some boarding house or clubHis rooms are as forlorn as himselfHis are full of holes his garments buttonless his bureau drawers a sight Oh hes a sad spectaclethis- man who hasnt married because he couldnt find a woman to suit him Many men remain unmarried from purely selfishness motives They dont want to give up the freedom and luxuries they have enjoyed as bachelors They do not like the idea of sharing the money which has heretofore been entirely spent on their own pleasures They cannot bear the idea of not being able to come and go as they please responsible to no one for their actions That is all very well while they are young and lively but how about the lonely old age that lies before them when uncared for and unsought they spend their days with little other company than the memories of their gay youth to cheer them The bachelor gets to be just as set in his ways as tIle spinster and far more cranky Woe betide the person who trifles with his morning paper and theres trouble brewing for the unlucky one who meddles with the least of his belongings- I know several old bachelors and every year I notice they grow more particular and pernickity Pretty soon they will reach the age where no woman would ac cept them In fact some Of them are periously near it now The man who has a comfortable home with wife or daughters to care for him is ten thousand times better off than the bachelor r Every human being is the bet ter for having some great inter est in life But if that interest evself then we deteriorate instead of improving AThe an whQ lives by himself anor uinself cam j ibfe beof much benefit to his fellow beingryHe is bound iti grow narrow FA t J r r f ff 2 u fi ri V4 y P selfish selfopinionated This all sounds rather hard on the poor old bachelors but of course there are exceptions to every rule and there are many nice old bachelors whose only fault is their bachelorhood There are dozens of reasons other than selfish why men dont marry and it would be a great satisfaction to hear a few of them from the lords of creation them selvesOld bachelors present and fu ture what are your reasons for not marrying Is it your fault or the girls fault or the parents fault ojf the girl or whose There must be some reason and speaking in behalf of all my girl readers I ask you to tell us Answer the refrain of the old song Why dont the men pro pose mama why dont the men propose IS OUR GOVERNMENT JUST TO ITS WOMEN HON LOUIS MCKINSTY I defy any man who prizes his right to vote to give any good reason why the average intelligent conscientious lawabiding and taxpaying woman has not the same equitable right to a voice in the government that he insists upon having There is not one of the tenets of our theory of government which justifies mans claim to recording at the at the polls his will as a freeman which does not guarantee in in theory the right of every free- woman to record her will at the pollsI saw a dozen ladies un dertake to exercise what they had been advised was their right The inspectors refused to receive their votes and the ladies quietly turned away While the discussion was going on an old pauper stood by intensely interested in the proceeding His large fam ily had been a charge upon the town for years These very wo men had given of their time and money to preserve this family from cold and starvation had paid taxes yearafter year to en able the poormaster to honor the drafts of the old pauper to live through the winter And yet as those ladies turned sadly away with their ballots still in their hands the face of the besotted old brute was wreathed in smiles He had been declared their su perior before the law All their knowledge their piety their phil anthrophy their ardent patriot ism went for naught in the scale when weighed against the attri bute that he was a male No depth of mental moral or physi cal degredation could disfranchise him No height of learning re finement loving service to hu manity or peril for their country could by any possibility enfran chise them And when I saw the old wretch laugh and realized the outrageous injustice of the law I decided that while I had a voice and a vote they should be given at every opportunity to terminate that wrong A Disastrous Calamity It is a

colt starts in life with full vigor To do this it must get a good supply of the dams milk very soon after birth An old horseman and a very successful one said that a young colt must have milk during the first half hour after its birth or he would not give much for it The first milk contains purga tive properties and clears the bowels naturally If any inclination to constipation is noticed give a little castor oil v If the bowels are too loose feed the mare sparingly and draw some of her milk by hand The mare should be kept in a quiet box stall and fed carefully for at least a week after foaling after which she can be turned in pasture but only for a short time at first When the colt is two months old it is well to get it to eat extra foodIt soon learns to nibble from the mothers feed

Township in this county today Twenty years ago Henry Zeigland a wealthy young man jilted beautiful Maysie Tichenor to whom he was engaged to be married an the girl in a fit of despond encjjf committed suicide Her4 brother enraged at the heartli ness of Zeigland w e n tto his farm and Attempted to shoot him with an oldashoned army mus ket which carried alarge pecul iar bullet The ball grazed Zeig lands left temple and hurried itself in a tree near by Zeigland f fell to the ground and Tichenory ji i iI s tt- xt a a YtY b 1 i thinking he hail klled hiniim mediately took his o w n life Zeigland was not seriously hurt He soon recovered fully married a wealthy widow and prospered wonderfully his worldly affairs Recently he and his eldest son cut down the tree in which Tichen ors bullet had hurried itself sawed it into cord wood and attempted to split it The logs were so tough that axes and wedges had no effect upon them and there fore holes were bored into the center and small charges of dynamite inserted and in this man ner the logs were split apart The pieces of timber did not fly much under force of the explo sions so the men stood about 50 feet distant When the section of the tree which for twenty years had held the bullet fired by young Tichen or was blown open the charge of dynamite near the bullet blew out the leaden ball which flying across the short intervening space found the mark it sought twenty years before penetrated the left temple of Henry Zeiglandand caused his instant death All that was mortal of Maysie Tich enor and her frienzied brother has molded to dust in their lone ly tombs but the bullet that was to avenge her wrongs finaly did its workEx Barabbas and Jesus Barabbas and Jesus can not both live within us One must die Yes every emotion of sel

general look on this sort of thing I am sure you would never be parties to it They make fun of it and speak slightingly of you Half the time the man whom you are allowing to take these liberties is not a man you really love but merely one with whom you are having a transient flirtation Love is too sacred a thing to be pa raded before the public in that man nerAnd any way the public doesnt care for it and is disgusted by too free ex hibitions of affection And never forget this girls your dignity is in your own keeping If you give a man the opportunity to take liberties he will take them It wont mean that he cares for you but simply that he thinks If she has no selfrespect why should I show her any Frequently girl will allow a man whom she has met not more than half a dozen times to embrace and kiss her She knows nothing about him He probably will treat the next girl he meets in exactly the same way if she is foolish enough to allow it Oh girls girls dont be that style ofgirlThe men talk about her lightly they cant have any respect for her Go out with your men friends have all the fun you can but let itbe healthy normal fun dont creep off into dark corners stay hi the light
