more apparent that the manufacturers are exhortin from the people at home whil they sell abroad in competition with the world Tariff reform will come And the deficit dur ing the last fiscal year suggests the advisability of an income t taxThe trusts are exciting more and more opposition as their methods become known Pri vate monopoliesare indefensible and intolerable and all of them must sooner or later be extermi nated The glovth of munici pal ownership has been phenom inal and men of all parties are r supporting that plan in all the citiesThe railroads have had their own way They have watered their stock and discriminated be tween persons and places but they will be brought under gov ernment conrol The Philippine situation is proving the correctness of the democratic position The islands are a burden in peace and a weakness in war A colonial policy provides at all times a repudiation of our theory of gov ernment and ultimate independ ence is the only solution The labor question demandsI settlement along democrotic lines and each years delay emphasizes the necessity for re lief The quantative theory of been established and moneynefit of a large volume of r currency has- President been demonstrated Roosevelts popular- itYIf has been won by the advocacy of democratic policies and will be lost if he fails to make good Why should democrats not find f encouragement

dairy types of steers the Iowa Experiment Station reaches the following StockIimannor dairy type for beef purposes They are unsatisfactory to the consumerIfurnish thick and well marbie cuts they are unsatisfactory the butcher because they furnis- low grade carcasses which are difficult to dispose of and they are decidedly j unsatisfactory to the feeder because they yiel I him little or no profit and bot breeder and feeder waste time in producing such a type o steer for beef puroseps There is nothing new or strange about this Practical feeders and killer have known it for a long time But every now and then somebody who doesnt kno what a good steer is or what prime beef is bobs up and de Jc1ares that dairybred steers and rt beef are as good as any Now 1 that the contrary has been de f wstrated In a scientific way i i is demonstrated in U business iIt 1t f Jjj tr f c If r J tIf 1 1 CtJ t t lit2 1 Jrf i way every market day let us remember it There is no need to waste time or lose money on dairy steers in the feed lot any more than on beef cows in the dairy Parents do wrong in keeping their children hanging around home in idleness and sheltered and enervated by parental indulgence The eagle does better It stirs up its nest when the young eagles are able to fly They are compelled to shift for themselves for the old eagle literally turns them out and at the same time tears all the down and feathers from the nest Tis this rude and rough experience that makes the king of birds so expertg isaemisfortune to be born with a silver spoon in your mouth Riches often hang

keep her grilling over a hot cook stove turn ing our roasts pies cakes and other cooked things to please capricions or voracious appetites of the family Mother is the last of the family to think she needs a vacation Indeed if you should hint such a thing to her she is usually surprised into speeohlessness at the folly of such a suggestion She would tell you that suTh a thing was utterly impossible There is so much necessary work these days that cannot possibly be shirked she thinks and really when you sit downand think of it you are almost persuaded that she is right No one could be

M TiXVviv i T Origin of a Crime Lies in Thought The liesbback of the quick temper which held the knife The origin of crime lies in a resultbof a series of thoughts the first of which may have lodged in the brain of an innocent child Men who hove studied the workings of the human mind tell us that each aatrack upon the brain That the same thought always travels over the same path They te us that the track deepens as the thought passes more and more frequently over the path until the threadlike track becomes a deep rutA firstaif constantly driven over be comes a rut If the wheels con tinue to plow into the earth the track is cut deeper and deeper until it is impossible for the wheels to roll out of the rut until it reaches the end of the road it is thus with the ruts in the brsin When the path is cut too deep the thought must follow the old course wherever it leads The rut may lead to theft The rut may lead to lying The rut may lead to murder Every thought ifapermitted to travel again and again through the mind leads to some act good or bad Crimp has its abthoughtGreat prisons have been built but crime still walks among us The habitual wishing to possess what belongs to another too often leads to theft The everpresent wish to be ridof one who is hateful too often leads to nlurdercStrong walls cannot control crime until brick and mortar canI control thought And thought is free as the air It slips past the guard it passes through the keyhole it scorns the grating it laughs at walls of stone it knows not the terror of the gallows Prisons cannot save us theI scaffold cannot free us the laws cannot protect us from crime Ah but where the laws are weak you are strong When the walls of the prison are fragile you are powerful While the hangmans rope cannot choke the life from crime you can I posIsessioner comes to you turn it out Dont wish for what is not your own Resolve to earn what you would have Thus a different brain track is made and this track deepened will lead to pros perity never to theft Instead of wishing to rid yourself of one who is hateful wish yourself higher and better than he This thought path will lead to a higher plane where the air is rarer and the sight is clearer and the hateful one way downw at the foot of the mountain which you have climbed dare not even lift his eyes to the heights upon which you stand Is that not better than a life behind prison wallsMan is more powerful than theI lawWe are more powerful than theI law We are more powerful than are the instruments of the law We can control thought and crime begins in thought Evie PBach

Missouri State Horticultural Society will be of interest to fruit growers This report is dated July 15 After the unprecedented cold of the winter and the cold East rains of April 15 to 20 we could hardly expect a full crop of apples While the orchards werein good condition and are still in fine shape blooming beautifully yet injured vitality of the trees and the failure of the bloom to well pollenize cansed the young apples to drop all through the months of May and June until the prospects for at crop is not good In some places the fungus damages have been severe and the insect pests have been abun dantThe prospect therefore for a crop be In the Ozarks 25 to 35 per cent In Central Missouri 20 to 30 per cent v In North Missouri J5 to 25 per cent While this is true we have spe cial locations where the crop vill be 50 or 60 per cent and even the small average that the State makes means because of the L large number of orchards a good many parrels of marketable apples for sale at picking time The prospect so far as heard from shows less than a half a crop in New York a little more than a half a crop in Michigan a still larger percentage in the new Western and Pacific States this justifies us in saying that the prices will be fairly good and that it will pay us to take care of our applesf Grapes will be an abundant cropPeaches of course are a fail urePears a very cropb Plums a very good crop Alfalfa With four years of experience- in raising alfalfa I feel that I might give some a little advice I have at present three differ ent patches one four years old one two and one that has been sowed a little over a year The first thing to do is to select land that is suitable for it and for the best results you must have good landthe best land you have on your place All my alfalfa is in river bottom land where the soil is sandy and very rich In breaking your land you want to plow as deep as possible and let the seed bed be like a perfect garden I always sow about the 15 of April and never later than May because the weeds are lia ble to get ahead of the young plants The plowing should be done long enough before sowing to allow the soil to settle some what and the land should be clear of weed seed If the land is foul it will pay to wait a year before sowing until it can be freed from the weeds 1 sow from 15 to 16 lbs per acre but this depends on your land and the use you are going to mike of it for pasture or hay year you will have to mow the weeds off three or four times and leave the vegetation on the Aground if the weather is very hot and dry The next spring rake up and haul off and give the ground a thorough harrowing Last year I cut ftve crops off the four year old patch and each time 4 i1 it made two or three tons per acre I have already mowed the same patch twice this year and it is ready to be mowed again and it is a great deal better than last year I will make a fourth more off the same ground and from what I have learned it gets better every yeareo v I have mowed my two year old patclTlwice and I expect to mow it once more or preliapsitwice r it l lrl 2 J- n IV more In cutting it for different stock you cut it at different times For feeding cattleYou should cut while in blob m but for horses it should stand until the seed pods are fairly developed it can be fe to all kinds of stock Hogs will get fat on it with a small amount of corn and cattle will get fat on it without a oaf corn but they soould be shelter ed in cold weather Itis the best feed I can get for my horses but I also feed some oats and corn with it and the horse will eat the alfalfa hay in preference to oats or other kinds of hay But like anything else you have work to keep the weeds out the first year but after the first year you make your hay It has been shown that it can be thebpenerile district successfully and will pay more than ony other grass that can be sown so let us follow the footsteps of the western farmer and make alfalfa pay and if anyone wants to know more about it write and I will tell them all I know J L JENKINS Bowling Green Ky The farmer should remember that the stomach of a horse is small and hence should be careful to see that his animals have frequent drinks of good pure water during the day This is especially needful theb hotiand dry It is no easier for the horse to go without a drink from morning until noon and from noon till night than it is for a man but we find many careless farm ers compelling them to It is not humane treatment and the horse is too faithful a servant to be de nied such a small favorEx Low Headed Trees The old style orchard was of ten high headed with the limbs well up out of the vayThe idea was to train the trees so high that teams could be driven under and to keep the limbs above the reach of cattle Now that these items are of less im portance to most orchardists the tendency is in the opposite direc tion until J H Hale asks perti nently Whats the use of a trunk any way It maybe said in favor of the low down tree that the fruit may be picked at considerably less cost and is not so likely to be blown off by thewind Spraying is also less difficult It is in many ways the better tree for those who do not cultivate directly under large trees and who keep cattle away from the orchard In a row of the Summer apples the trees were cut back much shorter than in many orchards consequently the limbs are sturdy enough to hold the fruit without bending These trees averaged about four cases to the tree The trees branch out about eight or ten inches from the ground Farmers Home Journal t Sheep are naturally healthy but quickly succumb to disease under unfavorable conditions Damp pastures are conducive to foot rot and damp quarters at night pro luce sickness There must be ventilation shade from heat and good cold water Twentyfive dollars extra spent in educating and grooming a horse to properly fit him for the market will often add from 50 to 100 and sometimes more to the selling valueIan Agonizing Burns are instantly relieved and perfectly healed by Bucklens Arnica Salve C Rivenbark Jr ofNorfolk Va writes I burnt my knee dreadfully that it blistered all over Bucklens Arnica Salve stopped the pain and healed it without a scar Also heals all worihds and sores 25c at T E Faults druggist t i irzi t il l J J Weak Bone One of the common troubles in t isbthat of breaking down WeaK legs are due to improper feeding welldwhile with the sow provided they do not get too much corn and they will develop very well on good pasture but when con fined to a corn diet they cant de velop good strong bone Milk and grass contain bonemaking material but corn does not Bone meal soft coal wood ashes alfalfa hay or grasses and such feeds as contain plenty of bone building elements will balance the corn diet Go easy on corn except when putting on the fin ishing touches of market hogs Just because it is an easy feed to throw out does not make it a proper feed Turn your hogs and pigs out on a good pasture and keep them on feedbswill They will spend too much time squealing at the gate Give them good water Those hogs will look large boned and gaunt all Summer You may be ahsamed to show them to any body but stick to Fallbwhen corn is fit feed it or bet ter still start them on old corn theseaslab sided porkers fill in the chinks There is no sense in feeding corn if you have pasture Ex irit in Summer As the daily foragingof fowls enables them to pick up an enormous amount of grit every day the grit may lie scarce even in Summer unless on very stony land Sand is not a substitute for grit Coarsely ground bone is excellent as grit and serves a double purpose A few pounds of ground flint which is sold by those who supply poultrymen cost but a trifle and should be used once a week When indigestion occurs it may be due to the lack of sharp material for cutting the food Gravel does not al ways answer the purpose as the gravel may be round and not assist in cutting the grain or other food I have had ex cellent results by pounding pieces of glass and giving the hens all that they will pick up They will accept it readily and it will not injure them in the least if not too coarse Glass is given regularly b poultrymen who cannot easily obtain other substances as grit A Mule Saved Him Adolphus Wilson of Nicholas ville who was in a railroad wreck in Indiana attributes the saving of his life to the action of a mule He says When I came to my senses a huge timber was lying across my back which I could not move In glancing around looking for help I dis covered a mule standing within a few feet of where I was pinioned looking at me as if wishing to render me assistance Soon the mule turned its heels toward me and began to kick The first lick struclf the timber a glancing lick the second hit it full and just grazed my ear which pow shows the mark as you can see tand somewhat moved the timber The third kick raised it sufficient ly for me to slide from under and as I arose from the ground and started to make my way to a farmhouse the mule followed evidently satisfied with the good work accomplished dG Rales Secure- dArrangements for the big Ken tucky State Fair to be held at Lexington September 1823 go on from day to day and each week develops some new feature whichI will add to the success of e xhibit ion Last week the Board of Control engaged the Heck Carnival Company of Cin cinnati The official title of the company is the Will S Heck World s Fair Pike Shows and if t s r I iII this title signifies what may be expected Many of the shows were conducted by Mr Heck on the Pike during the big St Louis Worlds Fair and will be repro duced here just as they were given there All of them were clean and moral in every partic ular They include an excellent animal show a Japanese theater theaters with moving pictures etc a dog and pony show a Persian theater and many other sim ilar attractions The effort which the manage ment of the fair has made to ob tain the cheapest possible railroad rates has been rewarded Secretary Bain has received a letter from Joseph Richardson of Atlanta Ga secretary of the Southeastern Passenger Associ ation stating that the railroads will make a rate of one fare plus 25 cents for the round trip from all points in the State to Lexing ton during fair week This rate is virtually a one fare rate and is much more reasonable than the railroads are in the habit of giv ing for similar entertainments There will beyond doubt be a re markably large attendance dur ing the week of the fair and it will come from every section of Kentucky It is natural for parents to feel that their children are gifted At least most of them do Let a little tot about four years old strike the simple tune of some old familiar song and the first thing that dawns in the head of the proud mother is that JohnnieI or Mary or Susan will develop into a musician that will some evI Then it is that the music teacher is sought and the wonderful ac complishments of the little prodigy are told in emphatic and ex cited tones The teacher agrees that it is perfectly wonderful When daddy comes home to his dinner he is cornered in the

COLUMBIA KY AUGUST 1905 f mht Jpau mmtglJjM r Published Every Wednesday BYTBEtAdair Gounty NewsoXK- ORPORATED I ellis M 0ARRXM Edttc Democratic newspaper devoted to the interests of the tfy of Columbia and the people of Adair ud adjacent countes Entered at the Columbia Postoffice as second Imss mail matter WED AUGUST 1905 ANNOUNCE lENTS 0 for JaHcr Ntasto the action of the Democraticjparty In adopting for Kentucky the tsecretelections its advocates claimed 0tof the greatest evils attending popular elections One of these was bribery and the other force or what is popularly called bull dozing It appears that while it has not been a success in either of these purposes in country dis tricts it has served one good purpose and one only and that is to prevent crowding and consequent disorder aboutthe voting places Yet it may be said that this is not on account of the se cret ballot but on account of that part of the legislative act carrying into effect the constitutional provision by requiring all persons except the persons then voting and the officers of thej election to remain a certain dis tance from the polls Has the t secret ballot prevented the bribing of votes Certainly not but v on the contrary thousands of men who under the open ballot would I not venture to sell their votes t and who no one would venture to buy have taken advantage of the secrecy of the voting to buy and sell Where force has want to be used there has been means found to use itt and that just as effectivly as under the open ballot In addition to the failure of the secret ballot to eliminate the evils it was intended to eliminate it has made possible and developed a lot of evils of greater magnitude than those intended to be remedied It has developed what is known as ring rule and machine politics It has virtually eliminated from power or influence the independ ent voter It makes a nomina tion by a dominant party equiva lent to an election If a man can by a machine or by bossi ism or by any kind of trickery aII ballot under the device of the dominant party where there is a general ticket that the party de aIas to how little his election may eIparty are opposed to his election He knows that he will go through with the ticket So that we find men desiring office paying very little attention to the question of personal popularity or reputation hIerally but relying upon the ma chineand the party bases to get party nominations Under the open ballot when unworthy or unpopular persons happened toj get party nominations it fre quently happenedthat men run and were elected as independent candidates or the independent voters would vote for and elect 0the candidate of the opposing party All of which served to in duce party caucuses and con Ten a tions to nominate men acc ptible t Sto the people and to deter men who felt that they were not fit or ct I V acceptable to the majority of the r xjt voters from offering for office t Another thing that has been de i ft 11 1 W fi 6 i V t s 4 ri i1J t I ftp veloped by the secret official ballot system is corruption by elec tion officers The fact that the way in which the vote is cast is lone within the knowledge of he election officers in the precinct and that no record is made o o tfany means of detection and if fraud is even detected without any adequate meansof correcting the wrong to the voter or the can didate effected thereby The open ballot will do more th anything else in preventing ma chine politics bossism and fra by election officers As to goo order so much to be desired at elections it will have to be had by regulations to keep the polls from being crowded by provid ing and enforcing sever penal ties against persons who attempt to interfere with voters or act disorderly in any way upon the voting grounds Yet with all his Kentucky will never have perfectly fair elections until the whole people or a decided ma ority of them are determined to enforce the laws that are intend ed to bring about fair elections and carry that determination with effect through the courts We hear it urged as an objec tion to returning to the honest system of voting that there wi be confusion and wrangling a the polls over the floaters This is not a question for considera tion as the adoption of the pro posed amendment will not change the law by which every one is re quired to keep fifty feet from the polls Unless the Legislature iiwhichgo into the voting place and have our vote recorded in the presence of the election officers and the challengers of the two parties No one else will be within fifty feet of the voter A record of eachvote will be made and the votes will then be counted a s cast Under the present system we do not always get our vote countedas it is cast Is it icIeasier to buy two election officers than it is to buy all the floaters If you are in favor of honest elections and of having your vote counted as it was cast dont bed e I l astray or driven from the path of duty by the little scare crows suggested by those who hope to profit by a continuation t of the fraudbreeding system that has been in use for the past thirteen years Every true Kentuckian should stand fo r an

Subscribers Washington For more ilian half a century the French government has been experimenting with schemes for establishing oldage pensions the first act having been passed June 18 1850 says United States Consul General John K Gowdy in a report from Paris to the department of commerce and labor The plan then tried was not profitable for the government allowedIinvestors five per cent more than it could itself get and the rate of interest had to be reduced Shortly after the war with Germany qepositors1hadthere was a deficit of 8400000 To make up this the government in 1884 made over to the Caisse des Retraites a sum of 50874400 in government stock the interest on whichwith a small annual grantamounting in all to 2515000 would it was calculated meet past and future losses In 1895 the act at present in force was passed but the question is still one that gives the minister of finance much anxiety and it is not unlikely that some future changes will be madeAt the present time deposits are received from any person regardless of age but the amount may not exceed 500 francs 9650 in the course of a year An account may be opened for a child of three years of age a mar ried woman may deposit money with out her husbands consent At any age between 50 and 65or earlier in case of permanent aisabil ity to work the depositor may claim his annuity which is calculated according to the amount of his deposit and interest and the probabilities of life but the annuity may not exceed 1200 francs 23160 An annuity not exceeding 360 francs 6960 is not liable to seizure for debt In

Gotham Mayor Has New Telegraphic Scheme by Which He Rids Him self of Delegations New York Mayor McClellau is going to try a new method of getting rid of bores Several days ago a repre senta ve of an invention for the transmission of writing by electricity suggested to the mayor the advisability of having his office equipped with the device He explained it would be so much easier for the mayor to com municate with his staff by this meth od than by having his subordinates respond to a buzzeriThe mayor was with the idea but John OBrien his private secretary saw its possibilities He pointed out that the transmitting pad could be attached to a shelf un der the mayors desk and that it could be connected with OBriens room soj that when the mayor wanted a siege raised all he would have to do would be to jot down a call for assistance You see its this way OBrien explained if you want to get free of some one all you need to do is to draw out the shelf and write Help Ill read the message and

as an attraction So one day he drove over to the Missouri town where the reputed old man resided and arriving at the home described found an old man working in the yard He inquired the old mans name and found it was the same that had been given him He then asked if it was a fact that he was 103 years old the old man answered that he was in a sort of matter of fact way as though it was nothing unusual The manager of the museum then told him that he had come to get him to join his museum and said there would be nothing to do only sit on exhibition look nice and answer questions and draw a

battle ship Sevastopol was t6rpedoed by the Japanese all the warships sunk by Russia in the Harbor of Port Arthur have been raised refitted and added to the Japanese navy When the Russian r i iij f 9 seajofed are handed over to Japan the Japanese navy will rank along with that of any worldpower excepting Great Britain It is a curious fact that the Russian efforts to destroy their own fleet at Port Arthur failed utterly It is true the vessels were sunk but not one was ever seriously disabled and Iwith one flyIing the Japanese flag When the bat tleship Perezviet was raised it was found that she could be navigated with her own enginesIAll told when Japan has acquired her rightful spoils of war its navy will comprise more than a dozen battle ships and forty armed cruisers and excepting England

land it is not out of place to call atten tion to the lack of recognition of poul try by managers It is this utter dis regard of the importance of poultry on the part of fair managers that has kept the industry in the background com pared with other departments of farming The premium offered for the best pair of fowls of any breed at some fairs is not sufficient to pay the expressage on the birds to the fair grounds in many cases and any old outbuilding seems good enough for the purpose All the novelties and pet stock are thrown in among the poultry and the coops are smalland very unsuitable for the pur poses There is an ignorance of poultry raising displayed by fair managers that cannot fail to be noticed by those visitors j and exhibitors who are interested in poultry and there has been but little progress made in the poultry depart ment of fairs compared with other exhibits There are a few exceptions but the poultry interests demand great er recognition and should be encouraged as a source of wealth that is much more available to the majority than many others Direct Route To Pacific Coast The Chicago Union Pacific North- Western Line with two fast through trains
