for dead and of the 41 seriously injured seven are fatally hurt More than 100 others suffreed less severe injuries Relief is being sent from neighbor- Ing towns From Oklahoma City went 100 men to dig graves and seek the dead still in the ruins and also a doz en undertakers with coffins Offers of financial assistance have come from numerous cities Gov Ferguson Of Oklahoma has issued a proclamation calling attention to the needs of the stricken town To add to the general confusion and distress after the tornado had passed fire broke out and burned up all that remained of the buildings on one of the business blocks So far it has not been possible to find out whether or not any bodies were cremated but it is highly possible that such is the case Pinioned to the Ground An unidentified woman was picked up dead having been pinioned to the ground by a scantling which entered her left eye and came out through the back of her head Clarence Donovan a railroad engineer and Miss Nina Fessenden were to have been married Wednesday night but posponed the nuptials until Thursday morning Both were instantly killed Fred Crump a boy had started to a cellar when a flying timber struck him and severed his head from his body Debris was carried to the northeast as far as Cooperton 12 miles and it is reported that there is more of the fragments of homes at that town and in that vicinitYthan are in the tornado path at Snyder About 75 head of horses and cattle were killed on the town site A committee was set to work to remove carcasses There is Much Suffering The mayor of Snyder is having much trouble in arranging for the bur Tial of the dead The confusion is great owing to the fact that there remain a number of unidentified bodies at the morgues There is much suffering owing to the lack of provisions and places to stay What houses re main in the town are in bad condition and unsafe for habitation Besides there is not room enough to care for the homeless Bedding and wearing apparel are both lacking and despite the efforts to succor the unfortunates they are still in a pitiable condition Many of the wounded could not be cared for or given medical aid until 9 oclock Thursday morning and by that time their wounds were aggra vated Dr York of Hobart who was active in the relieving of the suffering says that 20 percent of the wounded will die A TIDAL WAVE Walls of Water Sweeps Along the Michigan Lake Shore S TJhicago May 12 Reports of a remarkable tidal wave along the west shore of Lake Michigan were received The wave seemed to be the highest at Kenosha and Racine Wis where a wall of water swept in causing much damage and alarm along the docks At Chicago the wave simply raised the stage of water and cause a very heavy current down the drainage canal Boats navigated the river with the greatest difficulty as a result of the high current There was also much alarm among residents of the lake frontWeather conditions in Chicago in the afternoon were such that a recurrence of tidal waves along the west shore was anticipated Within a few hours the fire department answered 80 calls to pump out basements in various parts of the city Demolished by a Tornado Platte City Mo

Directly at the Middle of the Express Train The Wreckage Took Fire and Entire Train Was ConsumedScene of the Wreck Was Visited by r 50000 People Harrisburg Pa May 12 Twenty persons are known to be dead and more than 100 others were injured in the railroad wreck and dynamite ex plosion which occurred on the Penn sylvania railroad in the southern part of this city That not more persons were killed is considered remarkable by the Pennsylvania officials as a full box car of dynamite exploded directly at the middle of a heavy express trainMost of the bodies are burned to a crispand in some cases arms and legs are missing Two of the bodies have nothing left but a portion of the trunk The wrecked train was the second section of the Cleveland and Cincin nati express leaving Philadelphia It consisted of a combination baggage and smoking car one day and six sleepersThere are various stories of how the wreck occured but the official version is as follows Cause of the Wreck The engine on an eastbound freight train was flagged by the crew of a shifting engine ahead on the same track The engineer quickly put on his airbrakes and the train an un usually long one came to a sudden halt The strain on the air valves was a severe one and a connecting air hose in the middle of the train blew out This caused the middle of the train to buckle and the damaged cars fell over on the passenger tracks Just as this happened the express came thundering up and sideswiped the wreck The express was stopped within its own length and the third sleeper was opposite the wrecked cars Before any one could leave the passen ger train which was not very badly damaged a few slight explosions oc cured and then there was one great flash and roar that shook the earth The whole affair occurred within a period of a few seconds- A scene of horror followed the ex plosion of the dynamite The passen ger cars and some of the freight cars instantly took fire The Work of Rescue The work of rescue was at first slow and it seemed as though the flames would envelope the entire express train before those who were pinned beneath the heavy wreckage could be freed From everywhere there came cries for help and the frantic res cuers worked with willing hands Scores of them who were trapped in their sleeping berths or pinned under wreckage were taken out and laid in the field badly hurt The rapid advance of the fire drove the rescuers back as they were about to take others from the wreck and the unfortunates men and women were soon enveloped in flames The cries of the dying were heartrending but noth ing could be done for them The en tire train was consumed by fire The scene of the wreck was vfeited by probably more than 50000 persons They came from Lancaster and from all small towns within 50 miles AN OIL FIRE Cannon Used to Liberate the Burning fluid From heTank Fairmont W Va May12An oil tank at Downs five miles from this city owned by the South Penn Oil Co took fire and blazed furiously The tank had a capacity of 15000 barrels and was full when fire started Can nons were received to shoot holes in the tank and release the oil All houses wjthin a radius of a quarter of a mile of the burning tank were consumed A special train reached Downs from Morgantown with a small cannon on board Three shots were fired against the side of the Standard Oil Coi burning oil tank releasing the 14000 barrels of oil thus relieving the dan ger of a disastrous explosion which would have destroyed the town All but 2000 barrel of the oil was destroy ed and the big iron tank is a complete loss The total loss is 25000 The nearby 20000barrel tank caught fire several times but was extinguished by the liberal use of blankets And water One Killed and One Fatally Hurt Warren Pa May 12ln a crash

F a x 1 5 I 1 fr t THE ADAIR COUNTY NEWS COLUMBIA KY MAY 24 1905 3 V How Shall We Vote 1 Cc At the next November electio- the citizens of Kentucky will hav 4submitted to them an amendment to the Constitution to return to the old viva voce pan of voting and the consequent abolishment of the secret ballot The pro posed amendment is submit ted to the people by an over whelming majority of the Democratic members of the Legisla ture and signed by a Democratic Governor There is no question concerning the fact that there has been much more corruption in our elections since the secret ballot was adopted thanthere was under the old system and also a great deal more fraud But it is a matter of doubt whether this increase in corruption and corruption and fraud is due to the system of voting or to the gener al tendencies to these which has grown and multiplied throughout the whole country in recent years It is urged that Kentucky would never go Republican the viva voce system is very helpful to Democracy The ballot of election law however should be put upon higher plane than the success of a party as much as a man may love his party That system should be adopted which gives the freest and most uncor rupted expression of the voters of the State regardless of who it helps or who it hurts There were two things that ac tuated the makers of the New Constitution to engraft the secret ballot into our organic law one was that it would stop to a great extent the buying of votes and the other was that it would allow the voter to express his real sen timents at the polls without fear of intimidations It has failed to accomplish these ends then it has failed of its purpose Under the old system a worker could march the man he had purchased up to the polls and see the goods delivered before he paid There is no question that this was much more satisfactory way to corrupt the voter and to control the elec tion than to buy under the secret ballot plan with the uncertainty as to whether the goods are de livered There are a number of cases in this county where hundreds of floaters have taken money from one candidate and voted for another Such cases are calculated to discourage vote buying There is more or less of it done under the secret ballot but it stands to reason that it can not be done as successfully under the secret ballot law as under the old system and the can didate who does not use money has a better chance against the one who does under the secret ballot than under the viva voce way There are thousands of men who are intimidated itheir employers or by public sentiment from voting their real opinions under the open ballot who vote as they please under the secret bal lot This is particularly true in large cities where there are large shops that employ thousands and manufacturing e s ta lishments who number their employes by the hundred There are two things a free expression and an uncorrupted expression that the voter must JOnvery serious objection urged against the secret ballot which does not apply to the viva voce way ofvoting it is the falsifying pf the returns after the vote is cast This is a great evil and e men should be sent to

figures beautiful embroidery and many other commodities which showed how artistic we are but but the Europeans described us as uncivilized We have recent ly killed some 70000 Russians andevery European nation is wondering at the nigh condition of civilization which we have attained Our friend the diplomat is wrong when he declares that Ja pan had to establish her claim to civilization by killing 70000 Rus sians Her civilization haslbeen admitted for years not because she built a strong navy but be pause she organized the govern ment that made possible not only that army and that navy but a clean economical and efficient domestic administration as well But surely the world may be par doned some gasps of astonishment at the wonderful perfection of the military system revealed by the war The attainment of such perfection argUes that the Japanese are as likely some day to excell in industrial science and in the broader fields of art as they have already in a sphere that is purely martialEx To Be a Politcian An old German farmer near LaRose had a fine son of whom he was justly proud He decided to find out the trend of the boys mind and adopted a novel method by which to test

if he takes dot Bible hell be a preacher but if he takes dat whiskey hes no goot and is go ing to be a drunkard Then he hid behind the door to see what he would choose In came the boy whistling and

manner since its enlargement but it is not yet what we want or suf ficient to justify the expenses of its growth in size If every friend of the paper would use a little effort with his friends who are not subscribers it would soon have the support that such effort and expense really deserve Our mailing list shows a few short of 2100 and there is no reason why jt should not reach 3000 or more within the next twelve months if its friends would assist a little in this work We do nop call for a favor that we feelundeserving but believe in reciprocity at home as well as abroad The News has stood for every move that tends to better this section It has not sought a cheap miserly policy to make money for its publisher but has done and is still doing and will continue to do everything it canto advance the the general good of this section If such a course is commendable and desirable then help a little as above suggested and least but not less important pay up your subscrip tion if not already square or have an understanding as to when it will be done It is said that the President is taking a deep interest in the na vaLsituation in the far East John Hoch the muchly married man and

Judge of the City Court Louis vile for jjeveral year is dead He was prominent in local poll tics and was a Republican until tYlOYwhen he became ir if Vi q J bl i vJvv t t identified with the

Chicago theI strongest Democratic organiza tion in that city so entertained Teddy a few days agoand his ad dress was so Democratic as tore c e i v e applause throughout Strange things happen Geo B Warner who murder ed Pulaski Leeds in Lonisville last year and was condemned to die on the gallows last Friday was granted a respite by Gov Beck ham until next Wednesday the 31st inst The friends of War ner are trying to establish the claim that he is crazy and the respite was granted in order to give the court ample time to make inquiry as to the condition of the condemned mans mind An in quest was held last week the jury failing to agree and the sec ond trial will be held this week A general engagement is be lieved to be imminent in Man churia Oyama is deploying heavy forces against Linevitchs left wing and is contracting his troops along the center The Russian army occupies a line for tytwo miles in length and is strongly entrenched The War Office at St Petersburg has no doubt that Oyama is preparing to attack and that Linevith will ac cept battle in his present position There is no definite report of the wtierabouts of the Russian and Japanese naval fleets Protective tariff is a good thing the only policy that keeps busi ness going and throws on the steam of prosperity so we have been told by our Republican friends They have insisted that the consumer does not pay the tax that the American manufac turer must be protected to secure good wages for American work ingmen All this ounds good to the fellow who works for wages and who has not seriously con sidered the effect of a tax so high as tp affordprotection to the man ufacturer against the rest of the world to his mployerwho claims to give him higher wages for his work and skill yet gets it all back in the high prices for what he is forced to use The Repub lican party has all along been winning its battles on the good of protection It has preached that it was good for the consumer as truly as it was beneficial and essential for the producer but unhappily this policy has been set at naught by the Canal Comm s sioners who have decided to buy their supplies on the open market of the world which will leave the American manufacturers ama zingly out or be forced to reduce the prices about one half Now if protective tariff is good for the consumer for the American workingman why not good for our government when it becomes a purchaser The Commissibrii ers are looking after the interest of the Canal which is the interest of the government when viewed as a purchaser and in so doing clearly overthrows the poli cy and doctrine by which that party has fooled the American people for years No sane person will contend that the Commissioners should buy from home manu- fcturersregardless of price and isour government in its purr chases must ignore asidetrack tliesegreat infant industries to take care of its interests then Why not give the great common people the same l 1essing by tearing down the tariff wall and knock outthe tribute paid to the captains of industries The actions of the Com i n rSisnotin keeping with the teaching of the Republican party and will doubt r N c less strengthen the demands of those who want a revision of the tariff At any rate it is a strong and forceful object lesson for the people and will have its effect in clearing away the fog that has enveloped the hideousness of powerful corporations taking a piece of every mans bread without just compensation It clearly shows that protection is not good for the consumer that the pur chasers interest is best served on the cheapest market that the tariff only blesses those who ma nipulate the capital Slowly but surely the props behind the wall are giving way GRADYVILLE J Sacramental

Jritt t i Tr THE AD ffi COUNTY NEWS COLUMBIA KY MAY 24 1905 5t s ILOCAL NEWSI THE RAILROAD Mr W K Azbill andMr R N Wath en Lebanon were in Danville last week in the interest of the proposed railroad which is to run through Columbia Mr Azbill submitted the report from the engineer and from the Advocate we learn the following The possibilities of the line as point ed out by the engineer are most en couraging as the country through which it is proposed the line shall be built from Lebanon to the Cumberland river is the widest strip in the United States located territory without ain a paying line of road The section of country near the Cumberland river has thou sands of acres of undeveloped coal and timber lands and the engineer figures that it would require forty years to re move the timber alone should the road have nothing else to do The right of way to Lebanon has already been secured and the committee will within a short time get to work to secure the right of way from Lebanon to Perry ville Should the road decide to come to Danville it is earnestly hoped Boyle county farmers will encourage it all they can As soon as the rights of way and t some other preliminary work has been done Mr Azbill will take the matter up with the cap ita 1 i s tis whom he expects to build the new line There is little doubt however that if the line is built Danville and Boyle county will have to attend to get ting the rights of way Harrodsburg wants the road and wants it badly and while we believe there is a leaning by the company in favor of this city it will j doubtless be the longest pole that knocksthe persimmon and it behooves our citizens not to let Harrodsburg and Burgin get ahead of them Messrs Azbill and Wathen went to Harrodsburg to confer with the citizens there yesterday LITTLE NEVA DEAD On May 14 1905 at 11 oclock in the morning the death angel visited the home of Mr and Mrs J H Smith and took from them a loved one their baby She lacked only three days of being one

when you have to leave this world you can meet your baby in glory and there live to gerher for ever where sad partings will never come We extend our deepest sympathy to the parents and may Gods

KENTUCKY l r i rW e roes Tribute to Lee Editor of the TimesDispatch SirI was shocked to read the sad intelligence that General Fitzhugh Lee is no more As a colored man I do not think it out of place for me to pay this humble but sincere tribute to his mem ory I voice the sentiments of thous ands of my race throughout the broad limits of this grand old Commonwealth when I say that we sincerely mourn his loss From many a lowly humble cabin comes the sad earnest expression that the negro has lost a friend Genera Lee whilst a brave loyal patriotic r Confederate soldier who gallantly did battle for what he conceived to be rightthe protections of the homes and firesides of his beloved Southland yet he had no ill feelings in his heart toward the poor slave as subsequent years abundantly prove I knew Gen eral Lee personallyknew him to be a friend to my racea friend to the hum ble and lowly He had a large gener ous heart that went out in the interest of humanity He was a white man in all that word implies Soy iern intensely Southern But when called by the voice of a mighty people to fill the highest office in his State he proved an ideal Governor He was Governor of all the people regardless of race creed caste or nationality The institutions for our race humane and educational received his hearty support and encouragement His democracy was broad enough wide enough and deep enough to do even and exact justice to all He knew the negro well knew his faithfulness and devotion to the wives and children of the Southern soldier when they were following the Stars I and Bars from Bethel to Appomattox a devotion and constancy unparalleled in the annals of history- I was born a slave I know all the hardships that slavery entailed upon my race I am no apologist for slavery Thank God that that bondage that wronged and enfeebled both master and slave is gone never to return but deep down in my heart I thank the white man for my contact with him for the Christian civilization thatx slavery brought to my race The hand of God can be seen in it all I admire General Lee as a brave solder I care not if he did wear the Graybravery is brav ery every where He was brave enough to be just humane and kind to the lowly- I today drop a tear upon his bier and thank God that such a man lived Such men are the salt of the earth In such mensuch Southern menthe negro finds his best friends on earth Yes the colored people have sus tained a great loss in the death of Gen eral Fitzhugh Lee and revere his mem ory with gratitude for what he did for us Peace to his ashessweet be his rest ZACHARIAH HUNT Roanoke Va The Habit of Lying I wonder how many of our boys know what a small disreputable thing it is to- be a habitual liar I hope not many of them do by their own experience but I am sure some of them have seen other boys who are so ruled by the habit of untruthfulness that they are in noa wise desirable associates Indeed everyone avoids a liar whether young or old and as to trusting onebless- me it can not be done The boy who is not truthful will get all the hard knocks all through unless he re forms and even then the reputation he has made for himself during youth will never quite leave him The habit of lying will make its mark on the face and show itself in the eyes and even when he is telling the truth which v- ewone sometimes does hewin be treated with suspicion Very few of the better class of boys will want to associate with hllnand he Will bea marked boy on the playground only those like him will care to have any thing to do with him When he gets out into the world honest men Wilbaviod hint and hewill not get the help and favor shown him which at some tithe in their life most young men sorely need Nobody will characterHeand gamblers can do that but malting t money is notthe best to be made in life though money if honestly acquir ed is a good thing to have But there are other things so much better than money which he can never have if he persists in dishonesty One does not have to use words in order to lie ac tions speak louder than words at times and the most dishonest of men do not do much talking Then too one gets to be dishonorable as well as dis honest through the lying habit and the better class of people are always against such men I dont think any of our boys want to get such a reputation and the only way for one to get a good reputation is to build up a good character by truthfulness honesty and honoring himself while he is a boyEx- A Parcel Post LawI To our mind the express companies are far worse offenders in the way of levying autrageous charges than the railroads themselves are For example recently we received by express a package weighing 12 pounds that had come less than 100 miles and we had to pay 65 cents on it and soon after we received by freight a shipment of nine boxes weighing 330 pounds that had come over 800 miles and it cost only plOiAs compared with freight charges express charges are in nearly every case pure robbery We believe that the express evil is the first thing which should be broken up The government should establish a par cels post and it would long ago have had it if it had not been for the opposition influences brought to bear on Congress Senator T C Platt of New York stands as the sentinel of the express interests in the senate being himself president of one of the biggest compa nies He is reported to have said frankly that he would block a parcels post law because it would hurt his bus iness The question may yet be asked whether this government is being run in the interests of the people or the ex press companies You can now send a 1pound package by parcels post the 10000 miles from here to Peking China for only 12 cents Yet if you want to send the same package to a person in the next town to you it will cost you 16 cents by mail or probably 30 cents by express In the name of common sense why should you be compelled to pay more for sending a parcel to an address in this country than to one in Europe or AsiaThe answer of course is that there is a strong lobby which stands in the way of a low merchandise postage rate in this country It would be a boon of incalculable value to the people if a parcels rate similar to that in England were established here It is coming of course but it will not come until people tell congress in unmistakable terms that it must act It is utterly futile trying to interest congress in anything for the benefit of the public unless the public demands it at the polls There are a lot of good men in congress but they are tied up by all sorts of obligations and they dare not shape their course by principles of high statemanship Rural delivery will inevitably lead to a parcels post The government already has all the machinery in opera tion and it could handle light express at small additional cost The revenue could undoubtedly be made to pay for the service and yet the charges be but a fraction of what the express compa flies now charge The world progress es in spite of obstructionists and it is inconceivable that the American public will much longer go without a means of sending small parcels at a moderate cost simply because the express com panies object to giving up their monopoly dfTthis form of commercePath finder r r 33 To The Pacific Coast Tickets will be on sale from

Interesting Article on the Cause at the Decline in Prices by T B Lyon DUE TO OVERZeALOUS GROWERS The outlook for ginsenggrow ing does not appear to be so- vbright as it was a short time ago Her is reported as about the way th New York commission men ar expressing themselves on thesubject There is absolutely no sale for cultivated ginseng Do us any more 4This is a comment on the situa tion The Chinese refuse to buy cultivated ginseng and there is no use for it outside of the Chin ese trade This is the end of th great boom in ginseng It earlier than was mostly expected Doubtless there are some who are still investing their h a r d earned money to get a start in it owingII report that there i no longer any market for culti somIuneasiness among growers and some are asking why this is th case No doubt there has been some decline in the price of cultivated roots within the the las tear and we believe we have learned the cause Ginseng growers in certain lo alities by using too much strong manures and fertilizers h a v caused disease among the plants and finding they were diseased and rotting they have dug and put them on the market Others by drying the roots too rapidly have partially cooked them there by destroying the natural flavor ensivjodere have caused predjudice against itcultivated ginseng that will prob ably take several years to over come but even now we believe goodsound well dried cultivat ed roots will find a ready market at good prices Below we give what two prominent and we be lieve reliable New York growers say on the subject When we charge that some of the growers are putting this dis- eased root on the market we know what we are talking about Five years ago we t were offered a considerable quan ity of this diseased root It had been taken up early in the spring because it was rotting They were large nice roots nicelyr washed ready for drying and made a very fine show until close clyexamined when many of the showed indication of We cut into a number of the and showed the owner their con dition We have reason to be lieve that this lot of roots was sold to a local dealer in an adjoin ing town We are are also reli ably informed that a prominent grower in an adjoining county has made his boast that he ha dried his partially decayedroots and sold them with his first class sound ones claiming that the Chinese liked them just as well Now you may fool the local and wholesale dealers a few times put you cant fool a Chinaman many times on ginsengGeo Apulia Station N Y Aug 19 1904 We find that rapid drying of the large roots cause them to become cooked or partially so in the center The outside of the beJoffensive1oderWe hear talk of drying roots inI twentyfour hours but in every case where this or any rapid dry jiri attempted you will find Imoreorless of the cooked root Dealers should certain ly gaurd this matter very closely Not an ounce should they buy r r i Ar until they know it has not been inured in drying We are to a point now when care should be taken to have nothing but good sound well cured stock put on the market Our own stock this season was four or five weeks in drying and was pronounced fine and of good flavor We sold at 825 C M Godseed Editor Special Crops Skaneatles N Y December 1904 To my mind the foregoing ex plains the prime cause of the out ginsengemayebe trying to make it appear worse than it really is but we feel sure that the above is the principal canse and the remedy is give the trade what they want and are entitled tothatis sound properly cured roots and it will gins seng or mer prestige in the market As I see it there is no goods common sense in the idea that cultivation will injure or destroys the flavor of ginseng while it im proves the quality of every other plant of which we have any knowledge If you are in thee business dont be scared out by these discouraging reports Stick to it and if you have sound- t and well dried roots you will be well paid for them Only a year or so ago there was reported that there was dan ger of an overproduction and ofedryed roots had been burned in China to prevent it With this re port came a drop in the price of ginseng for a few months and then it went up again higher than ever- Chinas 450000000 of people want ginseng and they will haves it if they can get it but they dont want rotten roots The suppN of wild roots is practiallv exhausted and the future srpply must come from the gardens of the cultivator and instead of be ing discouraged and quitting the business let us go to work to give them what they want and

it will be participated in by old soldiers who have never been to any reunion before In the country where fowls often run at large they make much trouble in the garden but an artificial hawk placed in prop er position will frighten them away Set a tall slender pole near the middle of the garden letting it lean from perpendicular Then take a very large potato and stick it fullof long feathers those from goose and turkey wings and tails being best Follow the plan of the spread of the wings and tail ofa hawk and use all the feathers that can possibly find place in the potato Hang it from the end of the pole by a strong cord and it will sway and dash about in the wind ina very realistic manner As soon as the fowls catch sight of it they start the most unearthly squawking and run as far away from it as possible Sunflower Philosophy Dont start on an uphill pull after you arq 40 A man is always longing to call some body a fool to his face Check yourself up and you will find that you are kicking too muchWhat a very precious thing it is that it never makes any one sick to laugh A woman who loves her hus band and is nice and sensible is about the nicest thing in the worldGet acquainted with any preacher and you will find it is his ambition to reach And now it is the army from which the number of desertions- is reported as being unprecedented At some of the posts the desertions have reached as high as 30 per cent The troub leis laid at the door of an obviously dangerous regulation adopted some months ago whereby the efficiency of the recruiting officers was to be tabulated oh the

Eliza Estes sold her house publicsmove thers at Somerset Some weeks since it will be re membered that we reminded Henry Thomas of the Casey County News that the guardians of the cause of Democracy in Casey county would in their wisdom name a ticket for county offices at a time when it best suited them And we advised Mr Thomas whose soul seemed to be worried over the matter to possess the same in peace And knowing of his timid nervous temperament we also advised him to beware of playful Demo crats who might want to boo him out of the race for County Superintendent It was intend ed only as a little gentle advice which we thought John Henry would take good humoredly but we were mistaken John Henry is not built that way In fact it turns out that Mr Thomas is of that class of persons who think that what they dont know was torn out away back when they were little tots and very little ones at that He mentions the fact that possibly we will be tickled with the nomination for Magistrate in this precinct He doubtless remembered a little tickling of the same kind that he used to get and how his bosom swelledwith emotion at the thoughts of being thus honored But that was a long time ago and John Henry has got up in the world At least his head is up He still walks forked end down we presumej because there is no other way to walk for we are sure he would want to be different from other people even in his manner of getting about But notwith standing his pomposity if you know what that is he is still re garded by many people as an or dinary man and by a great many as a very ordinary one As to holding our tongue that is simp ly out of the question especially when we are after fun and we are going to have that so long as we are able to enjoy it and John Henry Thomas will be compelled to contribute his part so long as he remains within our reach and if there is any more whining on his part we will simply take him across our lap and give him a sound spanking CANH 3LRLLBY
