efficiently be gun by the former overseer Mr J H Pelly has been continued by his successor Mr W G Ellis and they deserve the thanks of the people of this vicinity for the excellent work they have done on this joint of road Let the good work continue We hear of considerable trouble in many localities in procuring the newly adopted text books in the common schools It seems that the people of Kentucky have been put to a great deal of ex pense and trouble for several years in buying textbooks that was wholly unnecessary and that some book companies have profit ed immensely at the peoples ex pense It is gratifying to see that there is a disposition on the part of our Legislators after many years of toathe people of this State to reme dy this matter and get it down to a business basis When the present adopted books are fully supplied in the schools it would undoubtedly be best to use this series for at least ten years and thus save the trouble and expense that comes from a complete changeOn

EDITOR NEWS Our farmers are over the rush of work for this season and are generally well satisfied with the result of their labors and prepar ing to take a little rest and recu perate their energies at Morri sons Well or Morrisiana as it will be called in the future The wheat crop was very good though rust injured a few fields Oats are above the average in yield and meadows except clo ver have done well this year Corn promises a magnificent recordbreaking theafarmers have certainly earned a rest during the hot months of July and August We count ourselves fortunate in having within easy reach the fine health giving water to be had here at Morrisiana I have but a very slight acquaintance with Mr Morrison the propri etor and have no pecuniary in terest whatever to subserve in calling attention to the water of this Summer Resort but having used the water occasionally for more than a year and finding it beneficial and greatly enjoying taking copious draughts of the water cold and sparkling from the well I hope our neighbors from Adair farmers doctors of medicine theology and law merchants mechanics and their families will pay a visit to this near by resort and believe they will be quite as much benefitted thereby as from a costly visit to much advertised watering places in other States I failed to mention editors in the above in vitation but Im sure they and their devils will be heartily welcomed at Morrisiana even if they cant get the printers ink out of the collar and cuffs of the their solitary biled shirt Politics seem dead in this county at least the political pot is not boiling just now but it may be only the hushed an ominous calm that precedes the storm and Senator B ackburn and his assailants may yet lash the pot into fury and rouse De mocracy to white heat I regret that some newspapers in the State have been engaged in mak ing unjust and uncalled for at tacks upon Senator blackburn who has served his State and party well all these years In the midst of corruption he has remained incorruptible No unclean dollar ever touched his palm and he is as poor today as when he entered public life Nor do we forget that when the maligned and lamented Goebel was nominated for Governor at Music Hall Joe Blackburns was the first voice raised in behalf of the nominees Then too he went t r t t t r 1 O 1S SS I all over the broad land eloquent ly pleading the cause of Bryan and the rights of the com mon people To turn down such a man in his old age by the employment of petty slanders and mean flings seems base ingratitude to a broadminded

for teachers in the public schools of the country are favored by Prof A S Mackenzie of State College at Lexington He conducted the Institute of the Jefferson county public school teachers and in an ad

such as plowshare culti vator shovels blade of the hoe etc whenever they are not in use Thisleaves them in perfect condition so not a moment is lost when one is ready to go to work with them Another plan which is especially good to follow when storing tools when idle is this Take crude petroleum and stir enough mineral paint into it to make it spread evenly Apply with a brush to the tools bright and clean If the small tools have been neglected and are found badly rusted in springthe easiest way to clean them is to let the work ing parts soak twelve hours in the whey from sour milk At the end of the time the rust can be easily rubbed off with a stiff brush or course cloth and after they are thoroughly dried a good coating of Kerosene will improve them Most of us have trouble with tools disappearing and whether from dishonesty or carelessness on the of marked hettelllClean ofandmelted beeswax Then with a sharp instrument mark the name or initials on the wax being care ful to cut through it to the steel Fill these lines in the wax with nitric acid letting it remain a few hours afterward washing it off carefully with clean water After the wax is cleaned off the letters will show perfectly plain on the metal For tools with wooden handle a name can be put on with stencil either by burning or with paint Or a band of some bright color can be painted around the handle which shows as far as the tool can be seenMi chi g a n Farmer The Slow Horses The farmers and stock raisers of this country would save mill ions of dollars every year if they could but realize that the basis of all performance of more than ordinary worth is blood Any cow will give some milk and steer or hog will make some meat any sheep will produce some kindof a lamb or some sort of wool and any horsepull run or trot some but what every farmer needs and should want is an animal that does its part well We have seen hundreds of men laugh at and ridicule ihe horse that finish ed away in the rear of the race at the county fair and a whole lot of these same men were keep ingcattle hogs sheep and poultry that couldnt come within a mile of any good animal of their class because they were not bred right When we make fun of a man who abslow horse let us think of the man who is raising scrubs for meat dairying without dairy blood or breeding horses that are not intended for anything in particular National Stockman Called His Dog Over Phone ccI left my dog accidentally at a friends house yesterday said a young girl My friend tried to get him to run after me but he would not leave He plainly

Never go to bed with cold feet If the events of the day have been trying read a short light story before retiring Leavethe window down at the top and protect the bed from draughts As soon as the body touches the bed relax the muscles shut the eyes find make ready to sleep Nothing drives away sleep more quickly than the thoughts that one cannot sleep I Quality is Desirable For the breeding of fowl stock in the hands of the novice who is beginning the work of poultry raising with a view to ultimate success and pecuniary profit quality is desirable The amateur may experiment at first with cheap or mongrel birds But he can in this way arrive at no satisfactory results because on the principle that like pro duces its like at the very best such experimenting merely gives him a product in nowise more valuable than are the originals with which he starts out On the other hand if the young fancier provides himself with only a very few prime specimens of any of the higher grades of breeds of improved poultry he can hardly failwith proper care and diligence in their manip ulationto reap satisfactory remuneration in breeding such stock from the commencement forward A single years experience in the right direction will satisfy the amateur that the quality of his breedstdck is of paramount importance in these days when only those who can produce the best of their kind stand an even chance in the race of competition at present rife in the huisness in this country We therefore hold it wise to waste neither time nor money upon poor or indifferent breeds of fowls if the young poultry cultivator is ambitious to earn fame or get fair returns from his investment in our calling When we remember that after the first outlay the expense of keeping and raising fowls of the best quality and varieties are no greater than are those which at tend the raising and feeding poor trash it is manifestly evident that the former should be made choice of in preference to the lat ter upon purely economic prin cipals And in addition to these ad vantages how much more satis factory must it be to any breeder to have upon his premises a flock of beautifullyformed and evenly plumed birds of any given mod ern firstclass variety which he has matured himself than to find around his place at the years end a mothymultitude of mongrels that possess neither come liness fair proportions size nor any

in his mansion with the weight of his millions on his heart or the pauper in his hut with the wolf at the door the recollections of early childhood light en the burden of life and soothes its sufferings The green fields and swirling streams around the old homestead where the light hearted boy once hunted the Mollie Cottontail in the clover or fished for trout in the darkening eddies or shouted and sang and tumbled in the air like a straw hat in a cyclone are painted ort my brain in colors that never fade and the shady lanes mel odious with red birds and armo rious with doves where he held his first sweewhearts girlish hand in his and poured out his soul in silence bloom and sing on the dusky bowers of harmony till death stills the weary heart and hushes the sighs and storms of mortal life forever The man may wander to the end of the earth and meet new friends on the way he may rise to wealth and glory or fall to degradation yet the very memo ry of paternal love and watchful ness which guarded the thought less boy and shielded him from harm never ceases to beckon his spirit back to the happy fireside of the blessed past and in every word of his mothers unforgotten prayer he hears the rustle of an angels wing Nothing sweetens the sorrows of our riper years like the memory of happy child hood The man who wounds the hearts of his chidren with frowns and cruel words or stagers into the doors of his home with blows and curses is a murderera murderer of loveband happiness The woman who deserts her home for the hollow pleasures of social world or neglects her in nocent and helpless children for any reason is a robber and unworthy the name of mother The poorest laborer who turns his hovel into a palace of happi ness for his children is a better citizen than the richest tyrant who converts his palace into a hovel of wretchedness and fear for those whom God has com mitted to his care The monumental fool and enemy of all that is noblest and best in life is he who destroys the joy and peace of his own sweet home If paradise ever descends to earth again and angels tread the soil it must be in the sacred precicts of home Bob Taylor Education and Crime Facts it has been long said are stubborn things And the statistics present a few on the character of criminals that it is hard to get around More than fourfifths of the law breakers now in European prisons are comparatively illiterate In our own country less than ten percent of the citizenship are spoken of as illiterate and yet to this are traceable threefourths of the crimes committed by the entire population The great majority of offenders brought into our criminal courts are unin formed men of coarse habits and rough breeding Not only is it the hi tory of nations that thail literate classes are responsible for the great bulk of crime arid lawlessness but as a matter of intelligent reflection No un predjudiced mind can presume it to be otherwise A great many crimes are committed through ignorance and a vastly larger number because the finer sensibilities of the culprit haye never developed Strong minds beenI rule steer clear of criminality We would not be understood to say that all educated men are good men and all illiterate men bad We are well informed that there are some homes untu 1- l f f tored uninformed men whose rugged integrity and native un polished honor measure up with the first citizens of the land there are others more fortunate in the advantages of education who have used their knowledge and skill for unholy and disgraceful purposes But these are the exceptions and not the rule And while we would not argue that criminality is always the result of illiteracy we do say that ex perience has amply shown that the border lines of these two qualities run dangerously near together Nothing is more evi dent than that the development of the mind is the fortification of the soul rendering man stronger in resistence and his character more impregniable to temptation It can not be confuted that be nighted nations and wicked na tions and the land that would boast of few criminals must boast of many enlightened citi zens Etown News Not in the Dictionary i

are very tired after being used relief may often be ob tained by bathing them with witch ha zel or by bathing them with clear cold water and to do this fill a basin with clear water place a bright coin in the bottom of it and then looking steadily at the coin dip them into the water keeping them open until they are under water then moving the head from side to side thus washing the eyes thoroughly Headaches caused by eye trouble calling for the care of an oculist and the wearing of glasses fitted to ones eyes are generally accompanied by brain weariness dizziness or vertigo and the headache is persistent But sometimes eye trouble whether internal or resulting from muscular weak ness of the eyeball will cause one to suffer nausea and dyspepsia General ly if the dyspepsia is removed and the headache continues it is best to con sult an oculist as the glasses may not suit Many of the headaches of childhood are directly traceable to eyestrain and if the headache comes on during the afternoon or after the eyes have been 3used in reading or study one maybe quite sure this is the cause In such cases no time should be lost in consulting the oculist and the wearing of suitable glasses is the safest way out of the trouble Eyestrain should in no case be neglected or greater trouble may follow later on We have some knockers to whom I want to suggest for their own good

LONG MOVING TRIP HOUSE MOVED FROM OHIO TO INDIAN TERRITORY Doctor Much Attached to and When Changing DomocileI Transplants It AlsoWas Torn Down Cleveland ODr C E Bryant a lo cal physician has just completed a May moving job that is perhaps without a parallel in this part of the country He has moved a 15roomed house from Cleveland to Indian territory His wifes mother was moving to his new home with him and she wanted her old homestead to go with them So it wentThis feat was accomplished quietly and successfully There was no demon stration no delaying of traffic and no creation of excitement This task which seems so Herculean was performed so easily as to destroy the romance that one feels ought to belong in the picture The house that traveled from Ohios metropolis to the southwest stood in Harkness avenue ip the East end ItI belonged to Mrs Austin Beckwith widow of Wells Beckwith and was her home 35 years She bought it when the original Harkness now dead laid out his farm in lots When it came to moving the house was torn down with as much care as marks the moving of a piano out of a flat Its fragments were indexed classified tied together and packed Only two men were employed on the work They worked slowly but with precision Finally the debris stood about the premises ranged in neat buns of boards timbers joists frames etc These were bound with straps of metal wire and in the conventional packing case methods As each came out of the house it was numbered The lumber was hauled to the rail road and packed into a freight car Then it started for its destination ac companied by a car which was loaded with the household effects Mrs Beckwith at whose request this strange form of moving was adopted explains it in this way We liked the old house of course but It wasnt sentiment alone that made us move it Dr Bryant was moving to Indian Territory to live permanently and we wanted to dispose of the prop erty on Harkness avenue We sold the lot and the people who bought it did not want the house Of course they offered to buy it but they would have had to tear it down and sell it for old lumber They were not willing to pay for it what it was worth as a house So we decided that we would take it with us lilt was only good for lumber anyway and had to be torn down by somebody we thought that we might as well be the ones to tear it down The house win be rebuilt in Muskogee pre cisely as it stood in Cleveland We will modernize it somewhat and add a few improvements but otherwise it will not be changed It is stated by the Bryant family that their new home will have cost them less than had they bought pew lumber and built a new house in their new home When we are settled in our new home it will be some satisfaction to know that we are still in our old said

last year had an in come of more than 15000 above all ex pensesIts revenues come from liquor licenses and water and light rentals and the success of municipal ownership here is such that the citizens would not go back to the era of private public service corporations under any circum stances Two years ago the local light ing plant was purchased from the cor poration which owned it Last year it showed a gross income of 1796540 including 1800 which the town chafged itself for street lighting Its operating expenses were 1438828 The towns income for water rentals during the same period was 1000947 and from saloon licenses 14122 The total receipts from all sources were 4985949 an actual surplus over the towns running expenses of 1557032 Practically all of this surplus was ex pended in
