from His Terrible Trouble A resident and business man of New York said recently In one of our growing western towns which I occasionally visit I knew a young man who was engaged to marry a beautiful girl He was suddenly seized with an insane desire to injure her She called for her father and brother and the latter ran for the family physician who upon his arrival ordereda glass of water to be brought At sight of it the young man frothed at the mouth exhibiting all the symptoms of rabies He was taken to the attic and fastened with a chain around his body to a ring in the floor One day after many weary weeks of watching a favorable change was noticed How do you feel asked the doctor Oh Im much better was the reply but you didnt cure me doctor It was that pile of onions in the corner See Everytime I felt a crazy desire to bite anybody I would bury my teeth in one of the onions and they have gradually drawn out all the poison lam entirely well Upon examination- an onion was found which had turned green with the poison perhaps the first one bitten The physician frankly acknowledged that the onion had saved the patients life A veteran of the uncivil war says A soldier was stricken with smallpox and upknown to the physicians a bunch of onions was hanging in his tent We expected him to die but he suddenly got better and in a short time was en tirely recovered A few days after he got out the onions were taken down and they were found to be mushy which the doctor said was caused by their drawing the smallpox out of the patient As they were inoculated with the disease they were destroyedN Y Press CAPTURED WRONG WOMAN An Ardent Italian Lover Whose Plan Did Not Work as He Expected- It Would A young countryman of Bitonto Fran cesco Capaldo was much in love with a pretty girl Elisa Fano and although the girl herself was not averse to his suit her mamma did not see Francesco with a goodeye as they say in Rome and so the course of true love did not run smooth Rendered desperate this young man decided on heroic measures and concocted a plot with some friends The mother and daughter were in the habit of going frequently to some relatives in the evening so one dark night the conspirators hirl in a narrow street and as the women passed sprang out upon them In the confusion which ensued heIghtened by the intentional maneu vers of the young men the gallant Fran cesco threw a shawl over the head of one of the frightened women and in spite of her struggles bore her off to his house I am Francesco he repeated at intervals thing to calm the terror of his lady love only however to be answered by muffled tones from the shawl struggles and kicks of such strength as to rouse his wonder and somthing ofN resentment that Elisa should treat him so Meanwhile the other woman had fled shrieking to cover followed by the men to conceal the doings of Francesco The bold lover carefully removed the shawl dropped on his knees and raised his eyes to those of=Elisas mother He Was Cool Now and then I hear an old soldier bragging how cool he was in his first fight said the onearmed man and I always have a dim suspicion that his case was lie my own I had determined to be cool at ev ery cost and so far as I could tell I fired away 40 rounds killed at least ten of the enemy and had every reason to believe myself a hero I had begun to brag a little after the thing was all over when the captain of my company showed me that I had loaded my mus ket ten times and not fired once and in a fatherly way observed to me Abe I can forgive you this once for running away

organized and Presi dent Treasurer and hoard of Directors are elected by the stockholders and this ten per cent is paid to the Treas urer The next thing is to secure the necessary money to pay for the

for it for several years past and in order to provide a capitaland make this a strong concern they take a certain amount of stock in this Burley Tobacco Co and take it as part pay for their tobacco At

instrument in order to amend it The socalled openclause in the new constitution only re quires a majority of the votes which are cast on that proposition to be cast for the amendment to cause that amendment to carry In trying to amend the old con stitution it was found that a large portion of the voters did not care enough about the matter to vote at all and hence it was found im advoters The

and Japan Mr Roosevelt is a republican though he may appear at times to be headed toward democratic doctrine When he listens to and obeys the voice and demands of the Whites in the Sunny South we will credit him with purposes and acts beyond the limits of partisan service but until that happens or when he has overthrown some of the pow erful combinations of capital that feed his party at the expense of the great mass of people we cannot believe him to be a democrat We believe in accept ing good regardless of its source and true to our convictions we credit the President with an apparent tendency of democratic ideals on some lines but up to date only tendencies and not re prosperIousother man or party gave it people make their own corn an hay manufacture their products and engineer

announce his vote and let it be recorded in his pres ence and have all the evidence retained so that the result can be couptt made by the officials or the courts Very heavy penalties should be fixed

paper says One4of our readers whose veracity is above questiontells the following The terri ble news comes from the western part of the Cherokee nation that a boy climb ed a cornstalk to see how the corn was getting along and now the stalk is growing up faster than the boy can climb down The boy is clear out of sight Three men have undertaken to cut the stalk down with axes and save the boy from starvation bnt it grows so fast that they cant hack twice in the same The boy is living on nothingbut raw corn and already has thrown down over four bushels of cobsWe pnblish the above clipping to show how foolish some boys are and what a noise is made over small things in the west Such corn is too common in Ken tucky to disturb the average man and from the Big Sandy to the Purchase there is not a youth so foolish as the western lad Kentucky does a whole sale business in every line and takes no back seat phenominal happenings and productions The Evangelist who was to conduct a union

unknown alWhatmagination supplied and imagi nation inflamed by deadly fear creatures tortures of which de mons never dreamed A yellow fever terror in the old days seared asunder all but the very strongest ties of affec tion and kinshipdThe dying were forsaken to die alone and the dead deserted Human nature was as it were cast into a fiery crucibe andre solved into its fundament an bru tal elements Beasts couldnot be more beastly in their coward ice than human beings were in the old yellow fever days It was literally every man for himself and the devil take the hindmost even though the hindmost might be stricken child or wife There were marvelous instances of sacrifice and heroism but they were exceptional They only em phasised the fact that superstition makes cowards and fools of nearly all of us The dead deserted by friends and kindred were by public em ploys thrown into rude boxes or wrapped in sheets and carted off to burial at dead of night There were no mourners follow ing to the grave no prayers the graveyard was a place of horror and the roads to it were accur sed Such was the force of oldtime superstition 1Such was the weakness the the degradation of hu man nature Today we know that fever is not contagious not even infectious but comes through mosquitoes The stricken and dead may be attended with ab solute immunity from the di sease The terror which men have blindly deserted their fortunes and their families to escape maybe shut out by a little netting Upon such little theadestinies of humanity hang The terror of the old day fed itselfby fear the epidemicvas immeasurably increased Desertion of the stricken and the dead left them prey to mosquitoes that imbibed from them the poison and spread it among thousands What a forcible illustration here

death of Gen James- R Carnahan of Indianapolis Ind majorgeneral of the uniformed rank of the Knights of Pythias It appears that the general who saw service in the civil war made the operations of his uniformed body the real thing and from the ranks of the membership of the Pythians created an army of well organized and drIlledmen His method vas wholly military He had small regard for the social element and his plans were based on the most approved methods of the regular army Each organization of the uniformedrank is part of a regi ment and each regiment a unit brigadevarmy of which Gen Carnahan was the commander and moving spirit As proving the military efficiency of his work it is recalled that at the outbreak of the war with Spain Gen Carnahan tendered the government the ser vices

The Government has very properly exercised moderation in attempting to enforce the crimi nal provisions of the statue butt it has become our conviction that in some cases such as that of at least certain of the beef packers indictted in Chicago it is impos ible to longer show leniency Moreover if the existing law proves to be inadequate so that under established rules of evidence clear violations may b readily proved defiance of the law must inevitably lead to fur ther legislation This legislation may be more drastic thanIwould prefer If so it must be distinct ly understood that it will be be cause of the stubborn determina tion of some of the great combs nations in striving to prevent the enforcement of the law as it stands by every device legal or illegal Very many of these me seem to think that the alternat- is simply between submitting to the mild kind of governmental control we advocate and the ab solute freedom to do whatever we think best They are greatly in error Either they willhave to submit to reasonable supervi sion and regulation by the na tional authorities or else they will have to submit to governmental action of a far more dras tic type Personally I think o fjthe acts of any great corporations drive him into any drastic action and I should oppose such action But if the great corporations themselves were to blame if by their opposition to what is legal and just they foster the popular feeling which tells for such dras tis actionIToday it is announced that Mr Roosevelt has practically de cided not to call an extra session of Congress to discuss the ques ofrailroad rebates Paul Morton is still free from any attempt at an investigation of his conduct when vice president of the Santa Fe although Messrs Harmon and Judson had at hand proof of his violation of the law x Is there not Mr Roosevelt such a thing as enforcing the leg islation now in existence without compelling the people to resort to drastic action because of their knowledge of the

the Quarterly Journal of Economics in which he deals at length with the question of the negros numerical growth and his ad vancement as a race along the lines that make for material progressAs of an exhaustive study and of statistical compar ison aacentury Prof Wilcox has reach ed the conclusion that the negro is not only failing to show fitness for occupations requiring a supe rior order of
