smiling eyes J The President Not since the breaking up of the Civil War has the student of politics been presented with a situation so in teresting as the present The recent campaign was remarkable because of the absence of any strong line of de marcation between the two principal political parties The only parties having a chance twin represented boldly the conserva tive or otherwise the capitalistic fac tion With apparently no choice the people selected the old party of radical conservatism and with it the great representative of conservative radicalism in internal affairs Any doubt of this proposition ha vanished since President Roosevelt has received the indorsement of the pe pie With inconoclastic hand he is a tempting to sweep do wn the most cher isheoV idols tof the monopolists r The tariff railroad rates the dignity oft e Senate Standard Oil and the beef 2i 1 s i rI trust presented nothing sacred in his mind Only those interested and their per sonal representatives the American House of Lords seemed displeased- So firmly entrenched with capitalistic clients were the Senators that the closest friend of the President refused support him on what may be regarded as a test vote of the situation More remarkable however is the support he is receiving from Democrats varying from John Sharp Williams and William Sulzer down to Jack Ghinn The destruction of monopolies or the curbing of them to legal bounds means the withdrawal of rich mines from the political leaders and President Roosevelt need expect no support from the machine men of either leading arty What then will be his course The leader of a new dispensation in may be forced into the leadership of a new party Those who know the President are aware that he believes the greatest good is to be accomplished by working his own party The developments of the near future will determine whether the Presidents party is susceptible to these reforms or whether the movement he has formed will sweep him away from it despite his own desiresElizabethtown News wanted a Buggy A young fellow of my acquaintance has just returned from Illinois where he went last Fall to seek his fortune The cause of his leaving his happy home was that he wanted to buy anew buggy and when he approached Governor on the subject the old gentleman said Sonny I get up ev morning at 4 oclock and feed par of my breakfast and go into the leaving you asleep For six months your only duty has been to Jkeep sufficient stove wood on hand to cook the meals but about half the time have to split itonly last evening when I came in from work I cut the wood to cook supper while you sat in the easy chair and read Set Adrift By Pirates Nosirree you cant have buggy This caused a parting of ways and the youngster asked the father to give him 15 and he would branchout for himself The old man drew his wallet and gave him 25 and the son departed In three weeks a letter came from the prodigal in Illinois which he strongly intimated that far off cows had longhorns and that there was no place like bluegrass The let er was never answered At intervals of two weeks the father received two more letters but did not reply to them Two weeks later when the father came in from the field at noon the son was sitting on the fence at the front gate Pa are you glad to see me1 he Well I hadnt become lonesome my boy I am here to stay All right there are thirty acres for fifteen for tobacco and fifty for- heatlight J in and you can soon have buggy but no rubber tire goes The son has buckled down and no young man is

there any common sense way of stopping a horse from the hab it of halterpulling while standing hitched or in the stall The horse is hitched at the wrong end Put the rope around its body in slip noose form just in front of its hips with the slip portion un der its body when drawn through closely Pass it along under the body between the fore legs un der the noseband of the halter through the ring of the post or manger and tie to the halter ring leaving only about three feet of space between the head of the horse and the object to mhich it backisinto to the slip noose at the rear it will so supprise the horse that it will immediately spring for ward in accordance with the law that whatever happens back of the middle of the body instantly forces it forward which in this case is the

the war was not used for that purpose It is said that the responsibility is with Viceroy Al exieff now Admiral Alexieff As astounding as the allegation may seem there is a ring of truth or at least of probability about it The enormousness of the graft and the enormity of the crime sort well with the con ditions which exists in Russia The contempt of Russians for the Japanese as a foe would natural ly suggest to a Viceroy of the Far East that it would be child ish to build fortifications with money which could readily be dumped into his own coffers Had the Japanese not captured Port Arthur the matter would probably never have been inves tigated and the exchequer of Al exieff would have enjoyed a gen erous inceease without inconvenience to or effort upon the part of the eminent nobleman Of course it was essentially treason able to divert a fortification ap propriation at Port Arthur but danger of punishment seemed small and 10000000 was large Grafting exists inmost American cities but such a crime as that chargedagainst Alexieff has not yet been attempted by an Amer scan nor is it probable that such depths of corruption will ever be reached in the United States for which let us be

goin to be no core The schoolboys joke will soon be a reality for there is be ing put on the market a coreless and seedless apple This result is the product of about twelve years of ceaseless experimenting on the part Of its creator John E SpencerWhen edless oranges first appeared they were bought as curiosities many believing that an orange without seeds was an impossibility but the naval has for some time been an accepted wonder and what happened to this fruit will also be the fate of the seedless apple And for still stronger reasons The seed in the orange were merely in the way They could not be eaten and so interferred with the un interrupted enjoyment of the fruit But beyond doing away with the unpleasant features there was nothing gained in the development of the seedless orange There was no waste saved Not so much with the naval appleAn apple without seeds is as valuable as a nut without shells when they are sold by weight at the same price It not only is without the disagreeable feature seeds and hard seed pockets but fully onefourth more of the apples can be eaten Careful esti mation shows that only about threefourths of a peeld apple can be consumed the remaining one fourth being wasted in the core It is in the saving that real marketable superiority of the seedless apple is found To those who eat them it is indeed pleasant to bite into a ripe luscious apple and find no seeds no no hard seed pockets and no worms Those who desire to inI fruit a great saving of time is noticed in the seedless variety At first the fact that the spec ies of seedless apple now being cultivated is a winter variety might seem to lessen its value to growers in the north but this new fruit has other strange features besides lack of seed Go in the springtime into an orchard where the seedless apple is grown exclusively and there will be no fragrance of blossoms no white snow of petals as the breeze stirs the branches Not a blossom in sight yet the trees are preparing just as are the seed variety in neighboring fields to bear fruit The naval apple tree does not blossom There fore a late frost does not in any way interfere with the develop ment of the fruit This makes the raising of seedless fruit a great deal surer thing than the growing of the old varieties There is only a semblance to a blossom found upon the new trees It consists of three green leaves which in shape and size greatly resembles the petals of the regular apple blossom These leaves are hardy and come so late that they are in no danger being nipped by frost These leaves cov aprples when they first appear and drop off one by one as the apples grow large enough to face the sunlight and storms without pro tection Ex Horrible Deed Near San Francisco William Stephens who lived at Ross Val ley Marin county murdered his wifet shot his five children three of whom died instantly attempt ed to murder a passing milkman and then ended his own life Stephens who was thirty five years of age was formerly a book agent but later was said to be connected with a rubber goods L house of San Francisco The family also conducted a chicken ranch at their homef in RQSS Val ley Early in tbemorningofthe day the horrible crime was corn t Ll f tJ I e i tr fY t ty f fJj t t i mitted Stephens emerged from his house revolver in hand and fired upon a passing milkman The milkman whipped up his horses and Stephens pursued him for 200 yards firing as he ran Stephens then halted in the road placed the revolver to his breast and discharged the weapon The bullet did not end his life and he sent a second fatal bullet through brainWhen neighbors and officers entered the home of Stephens they came upon a shocking scene The members of the family each with a revolver wound in the head were found in their beds The wife and three of the child ren were dead and it is believed that two of the surviving children cannot live The only theory for the crime is that Stephens was crazy

Isthmian Canal Commission has decided to purchase the supplies for the construction of the Panama Canal in Europe instead of in America as it is claimed the material can be gotten i n Europe cheaper

would soon come when all branches of Pres byterian Church would be united into one great body The mes sage was read at the popular meeting for laymen and was re ceived with great enthusiasm The Admirality at St Peters burg is without any information confirmatory of the reported de feat of Admiral Togo sou t h of Formosa The report is not cred ited as is generally believed in Russian official circles that Rojes venskys fleet is far out in the Pacific almost a thousandmiles northeast of the point where the battle is repored to have occur red An Admiral who has been watching the naval situation closely expresses the opinion that probally ten days will elapse before there is a naval engagement of any importance A writer who has recently in terviewed George Meredrith re ports him as

war fleet under command of Vice Admiral Rojesventsky has entered theStraits of Korea on the final stage of its journey from the Baltic sea to Valdivostok Be yond the fact that the Russians were yesterday in the vicinity of the Tsu Islands all is conjecture Apparently the only av eneus of news transmission are aut are ex ercising a rigorous censorship The paucity of information which the censor has permitted to pass has formed the basis for belief in high quarters in St Peters burg that an engagement ha s been fought and that the JaPan- ese have suffered a defeat the theory being that were the facts otherwise they would immediate ly have been given to the world In all events the course taken by RojestvanskYs fleet through the narrow waters eastward of Korea may be accepted as evidence that he is bent on forcing Togo to ac cept battle the alternative being the bombardment of Japanese ports and the sweeping of th e Japanese merchant marine from those waters r FIGHT ON BECKHAM The fight which is being made by the Democratic machine of Owensboro in behalf of Jo Blackburn is a fight against Goy Beck ham the favorite of the Demo cratic party and particularly of young Democrats The cause of the fight is known to everybody The measly little politicians of the unkempt breed went to Gov Beckham as soon as he was fixed in his place and demanded of him that he in effect turn his office over to them Beckham like the man and Democrat that he was and is refused to do so saying that he was going to fill the office of Governor as agent of the people and not of the plunderers who had come to look upon as their special pray and who had par celled it out in prospect among themselves long before the elec tion These creatures informed him that he would have to fight for his life from that day forth and they have made their word good When he was candidate for Governor before as sailed him with the bitterest ma levolence that was ever born oft hate and tried in

changes however and they find that they can give Blackburn what he wants by using him as a club against Gov Beckham But for the fight against Governor Beck ham the machine probably would not object to

t i r AW ROLLS DOWN MOUNTAIN Scotch Clergyman Has Wonderful Escape from Frightful Death in a Thunderstorm Edinburgh Rev Mr Robertson of Edinburgh a prominent member of the Scottish Mountaineering club has had an experience in climbing Ben Nevis which he will not soon forget Between his departure and his reappearance in a halfdead condition at a Fort Williams hotel he had undergone the terrible experience of rolling 1000 feet down the mountain side The day was a most unsuitable one for climbing Snow was falling incessantly and there were frequent storms of thun der and lightning- Mr Robertson nevertheless deter mined to climb the mountain and start ed off alone to make the ascent HE reached the summit in safety On his return at the top of a dangerous snow slope he was holding on with his iceax when there came a vivid flash of lightning which he thinks struck the metal of his ax The shock precipitated him over the edge of the slope and he began to roll He gathered speed every moment and was dashed against the bowlders which strew the mountain side Mr Robertson calculates thathe must have rolled 1000 feet before a rock di rectly in his way stopped him Then he lay unconscious for a period which he cannot estimate He must have been stunned almost from the beginning of his fall for he could recollect nothing that happened between the time that he realized that he was slipping and his arrival at the hotelHis wounds were dressed and he is now making satisfactory progress at the hotel- Mr Robertsons escape from death is regarded by those who know the spot where the accident occurred as little short of miraculous FISH CAUGHT FOUR TIMES Remarkable Tale of Finny Creature Which Avoided Death Three Times Brought to Light McHenry IllIn the catch of a large pickerel in Pistakee bay near here by a neighboring farmer a remarkable fish story in fact almost the first one of the year which had its be ginning early last season has been brought to light M F Huber of Chicago a summer resident on Fox river last year caught a pickerel in the side of which he found a broken hook and in extricat ing his line from the catch his hook also broke Upon reaching home after his trip he deposited the fish still alive in a fish box alongside the pier at his residence The water surface in the box was about a foot below the top of the compartment which was left open and imagine Hubers sur prise when he went to investigate the next morning on seeing the pickerel jump from the box and swim away His surprise was even greater when upon arriving at the lake this year he was told that the tale of a lost fish which he had been expounding all winter had been increased three fold in interest Upon his visit to the lake Huber learned that the self same pickerel with two broken hooks in its neck and an entire hook in its stomach had been captured by a farmer friend The fish weighs ten pounds and so the story goes must have been caught by different fishermen at least four times living through three of the ex periences However this finny wizard will furnish no more remarkable fish tales for its captors family consumed it the same day it was caught BUYS

canvas by Velasquez entitled Bacchanale and catalogued as of the Spanish school The large picture which although in a bad state Of preservation has much merit was only obtained by Dr Lingo after an exciting episode The auctioneer William B Norman had knocked down the canvas at 19 when Dr Linde jumped up and ex citedly declared that he had bid more After a heated discussion the picture was again put up and finally sold to the claimant There was a small audience and the prices for canvases attributed to such old masters as Rubens Murillo and Carlo Dolci sold for ridiculously small sums A head of Christ by Peter Johann Brandel brought only 13 and some heads of saints by the same painter went for 2 and 3 each The total obtained for 72 canvases was only 1017 f Mother of Triplets at Fifteen

In Local Swains Marry Them Situation Looked Upon as Extremely Serious i Huron S DTle cry is going up from all over South Dakota for a new crop of school marmsall the old ones are being married off so rapidly that the state is threatened with a famine in respect to school teachers The cry for the marms is coming from the young farmers and cattle men as well as from the local superintendents and it is nip and tuck as to whether the young women of this profession are more in demand in the homes of the weljtodo young men of the state or in the school rooms South Dakota always has had trouble keeping its school teachers for any length of time So many young men havecome into the state have taken up homesteads and are looking for wives that when a young goodlook ing refined school teacher goes into any community she has offers to wed by the score And while she may hold out for awhile eventually the right young man comes along and then the school committee advertises for an other teacher Last summer the dearth of school teachers became so pronounced that the school authorities placed advertise ments in eastern newspapers asking teachers to come to South Dakota and take positions But nothing was said at that time of the chances of taking husbands as well The result was that when school opened last September every position in the state was filled by a lot of nice looking cultured young ladies Scattered throughout South Dakota are hundreds of prosperous and intel ligent young farmers and cattle rais ers who are looking for wives Many of them are sons of welltodo people of the middle and eastern states young men who at home were used to good society and who brought good sense and good breeding with them when they came into the Dakotas to live And after carving a farm and a good start ofa fortune from the prairies these young men want wives to make homes for them The nights are long in Dakota and the sleighing during the past winter was exceptionally good Sleighing parties were indulged in to thehearts content and the young school marms were the leading attractions as well as the guests of honor All of which bore fruit The school authorities have issued orders to the effect that all applicants for positions as school teachers must first of all sign an agreement that they will not marry until they have taught at least two terms The authorities say they have been forced into requiring this contract because the schools are being left without teachersare being de serted on all sides With the coming of spring so many of the courtships which have been in progress all winter have been brought to a successful finish that the result has caused a dearth of school teachers all over the state and the matrimonial market is booming fa many of the larger towns the local girls have openly declared a boycott against any young man who pays attention to a school teacher until she has been a citizen of the locality for at least two years TAKES FANGS FROM COBRA Keeper Plays Dentist to Giant Mon ster Extracting Venom to Save Life New YorkA tenfoot king cobra which arrived at the New York zoolog ical garden recently was discovered to have a slight swelling at the root of his poison fangs As any irritation of the venom sac of poisonous reptiles is sure to result fatally preparations were im mediately made for an operation The patient as well as being the largest cobra ever received in this coun try is the most handsomely marked in the reptile house He is rather slender and of more graceful appearance than the cobra de capellos which have heretofore been the pride exhibits of the snake house In color he is of a light silvery gray shading to a brown at the lower part of the body and striped with gold bands about two inches apart His hood is smaller than that of the other snakes of this family and the spectacle marks are less distinct The snake comes from southern India With the help of Mr Sanborn a mem ber of the Zoological society Curator Ditmars placed the cobra on a table in the reception room and after wedging the snakes mouth open with a large cork he extracted the two and a half inch fangs Attached to the fangs was a little sac an eighth of an inch in diameter containing about ten drops of venom a third of a drop of which will kill a hone in fire minutes and a man in t twoAfter the operation Mr Ditmars washed the wound with a strong anti and in half an hour the snake hlierawasFor the next month the cobra will be bed entirely on milk after which it is expected that he will have recovered and be ready to be put in one of the outside cages in the reptile house J S t f STBIKEISSTILLON Misunderstanding Caused a Halt in Impending Settlement of the Teamster Troubles STRIKERS REFUSE TO ARBITRATE For the First Time in Several Days the Spirit of Riot Broke Out in Chicago There Were Several Fights and the Police Were Compelled To Use Their Clubs in Order to Dis perse the Crowds Chicago May 19Peace in the team sters strike is still hanging in the bal ance and although it is generally ex pected that a settlement will soon be reached it seems further away than it did 24 hours ago It was confidently asserted by the Team Owners association that the teamsters had consented to arbitrate with then the question of whether or not union teamsters should make deliveries to the boycotted houses Presi dent Shea of the teamsters union upset this arrangement entirely declar ing that he had never agreed to any such proposition Members of the Team Owners association however stated just as positively that the offi cers of the teamsters union had agreed to such an arbitration This misunderstanding caused a halt in impending settlementA Driver Badly Beaten For the first time in several days the spirit of riot broke out and there were numerous fights between non union men and the union teamsters One of the disturbances at 22d street and Indiana avenue blocked all traf fic and delayed street cars for half an hour The police were compelled to use their clubs in order to disperse the crowd and made several arrests The nonunion driver for the wholesale grocery house of Steel Weddell Co was the original cause df the outbreak through no cause of his own and was badly beaten before the police could save him In some portions of the south side a vigorous antagonism to union men has developed and the teamsters wearing a union button in driving through these sections meets with about the same treatment as a nonunion man does when passing the teamsters head quarters Several union teamsters were attacked near 26th street and Wentworth avenue and their union buttons torn off The union men were also vigorously punched before mak ing their escape Shea Refuses To Answer Questions President Shea of the teamsters union was the chief witness in the hearing before Master in Chancery Sherman He refused to answer the great majority of questions put to him His evidence was interrupted by repeated wrangles between the at torneys which consumed much time and in which both sides displayed much bitterness The parents of six children who have taken part in the recent school strike because of the delivery of coal by nonunion men were arraigned be fore Justice Hurley and each one of them fined 20 and costs for not send ing the children to school THE SWITCHMEN

Once the property of Davy Crockett and made out to him just a year before he died a val uable relic in the shape of a note for 5 issued by the Dowing N Y bank in 1835 is held by Charles Hackett of Grayson Springs Ky The note belonged to Mr Hack etts father but Hackett does not know the history of it or how it was acquired When the el der Hackett died some weeks ago the son took charge of his effects as administrator While looking over his papers and cleaning out some old trunks Mr Hackett found the bank note and careful ly preserved it There was noth ing to show where or how Mr Hackett Sr had secured it or why it was not indorsed with Davy Crocketts signature if it was ever transferred The old note is a curious relic of the the past and has the quaint words and expressions which were common to those times It is printed on thin but strong pa per and at the foot has this in scription which is the only ad vertisement the printer secured from it Engraved by Uncle Josh near Capitol Courier Journal Sunlight to be Superseded In this age of inventive genius we are supprised at nothing and are prepared to believe things that a few years ago would have been pronounced miraculous or visionary Probably few people have ever imagined that a man would find a way to dispense with sunlight in growing vegita tion That sunlight is absolutely necessary to plant life and growth has been accepted since the crea tion of t h e world It remains therefore for a twentieth centu ry man to discover a substitute for sunlight in plant growth and to prove not only that it is a sub stitute but an actual improvement on sunlight for plant growth This startling discovery is noted at some length in the May num ber of the Acetylene Journal in which is given a report of expe rience conducted at Cornell Uni versity in growing plants under acetylene gas light The article is accompanied with eight illus trations showing the result of the experiments the difference it the growth of plants under sunlight alone and when sunlight was supplemented on dark days and at night with the acetylene light and also the result when the sun light was excluded entirely from the plants and the acetylene light alone was used The report admits that more attention was given in the exper iments to the scientific features tHan to the commercial side but intimates commercial possibilities which may be developed by fut ure experiments The commer cial side will be in the use of the artificial light by market gardeners florists and others in forcing quick growth of their plants If further experiments confirm the theory the gardener and florist can utilize 24 hours of light instead of 12 in green houses and also neutralize the dark days of winter months Experiments heretofore wit other artificial lights have have not b ee n suc cessful But it is now claimed that the acetylene 1 i g h t is so nearly like sunlight that it is a- perfect substitute 1 Desirable Property tdr Sale The Russell Springs Hotel property is for sale Terms reasonable For further information write Mrs Susie Vaughan Russell Springs K Yj I a t The Packing Trust Corn cattle and hogs are the three great sources of wealth of this country and these are all controlled at the buying and selling by the Beef Trust Hun dreds of shippers and farmers are ruined every year by the c o n stantjuggling of the market by the Trust When the price of cattle or hogs is high any day at the stock markets the shipments are always few and when the ship ments are large the prices is al way low Why Because the people of the Beef Trust know when every car of cattle starts for its destination and make their prices accordingly The on ly reason the price is ever so high is to deceive the shippers into thinking that there is really more than one market There is but one market and the shipper may take his stock and he maybe suprised to find that the price is the same He can sell at the price offered or he can ship his stuff home at a greatloss only to find that the market shows no upward tendency The price wouldremain the same every day of the year only the trust must be careful that it does not alto gether discourage the stock rais ers and force them out of the business Maybe after a while when the Trusts have begun land grabbing they will attempt to raise their own stock and monop olize the entire stock business from raising to packing Brain Leaks Sin is sexless The real reformer begins with himselfA is never alone when he has the company of a good book We usually profit most from the sermon that touches our raw

that there is a vast difference between ap pealing to law and appealing to justiceThe man who purchases pop ularity soon discovers that the market is liable to fluctuations One way to foolishly waste

have we ever seen in Hardin county such a prospect for an abundant crop of all kinds of fruits The fruit grower now regards that he has past all danger from frost and is figuring on an enormous yield The peech trees are so full that in many instances it will be necessary to thin the fruit out in order to increase the size and prevent the trees from breaking Grapes plums pears and cherries will all be plentiful The ap ple crop will not be quite so large as expected but greater than for many years Just now there is more money in the apple crop of Hardin county than any other fruit and the growers
