March 1905 Sister Flowers was taken with an acute disease Skillful and loving hands did all they could to ariest the disease but to no avail and during the months of excruciating suffering she was

changes that hinge upon the lives of European rulers The tremendous readjustment of international forces wrought by the RussoJapanese war brings to front active specula tion as to the probable consequences of deaths among the important rulers Perhaps no more interesting- fpoint o observation exists in EuE rope from a political stanpoint than Austria In that country peace at home and abroad de pends largely upon the life ofr Francis Joseph the aged emper or Potent forces are impatient ly awaiting his death to foment civil war and the empire could scarcely survive The Hungarians keep the flame of their ha tred for Austria hot while the Croats feel as bitterly againstc Hungary The Bohemians and Poles will never rest until theirs dream of independence is real ized All these seething elements of discontent are more or less loyal to Emperor Francis Joseph but his nephew and heir Archduke FrancisfFerdinand is unpopular and would be a mere straw tossed upon the sea of re bellion Apparently it is only a a question of time before Germa ny shall absorb Holland The queen being childless the next heir to the throne is the Grand Duke of SaxeWeimar a German prince Of course England and France might have something to say in case the Kaiser should reach out- erlands his hand for the Netht but it is doubtful if they could make valid objection to the succession passing in a natural way to a German prince Italy is a veritable hotbed of rebellion and the various power ful revolutionary societies there opareportunity to strike This would naturally come with the death of the reigning monarch What would happen in Turkey should sultan die Ms problematical al though it is reasonably certain that complications of a most threatening character would en sue In spite of Abdul Hamids well earned reputation for oppression and cruelty it is be lieved he has held back a general rising of his Mohammeedan subjects against the Christians If these fierce fanatics should decide to break out at the death of the sultana war would be precipitated that might involve 7 all Europe In Spain great interests cen ter in the life of the boy king His death would reopen the battle of the Carlists and the Re publicans and civil war which has been predicted for Spain for half a century might be a fact The one great ruler upon whom all eyes of Europe have been fixed for several years is the Kaiser He is a powerful personal element in the preserva tion of European peace His death would probably bring noI material internal disturbance because he has a son old enough- to ascend the throne But this youngster is an unknown quan tity and it is considered certain that he lacks most of the qual ities that his father possesses and that have been strong elements in German progress Of all ru lers the most unhappy and unfortunate is he who sits upon the throne of Russia The death of the present czar woul bring to the throne his brother Grand Duke lIlichae- unpopular and despotic I

W J I Proof of Education Processor Frank J Miller examiner Of secondaryjfschoqls said recently at the junior chapel of the University of Chicago that oifty these who can answer at all of the following questions in the af firmative are educaredj says a Chicago dispatch InHas education given you sympathy for all goodcauses Has it made you easier to interest in them Has it made you publiciSjririted so that you look beyond your own dooryard and take inter at in a clean city Has lit made you a brother to the weak Have you learned the proper value of and time Have you learned how to make friends and keep them Do you know how to be a friend your H salt Can you look an honest man or pure woman straight in the eye to Do you see anything to love in a little hild Will a lonely dog follow you in the IIit Can you be high minded and happy in the drudgeries of life Can you think washing dishes and hoeing corn arejust as compatible with high thinking as playing the piano or playing golf Can you be happy aloneIAre you good for anything to yourself Ia j Can you look oton the world and see anything but4d ors and centsvCan you lorinto a mud puddle and rsee the blSY reflected Can yqii see tood in everything Can you look up to the sky at night in a and seebeyond the starsv Isthesaid the failure to answer any of these questions affirmatively- is enough to send the man or woman who thinkshe or she knows it all back among the uneducated The college curriculum does not contain all that is necessary to the educated man says Professor Miller A man may be graduated and go out into the world and still prey on society notwithstanding his so cilled education Demand For Diamonds Ore evidence of the enormous and rapid growth of wealth iri private hands is the extraordinary demand for diamonds Formerly these gems were chiefly bought up for royalty and the expression crown jewels were used to describe collections of diomonds on which the plain people could gaze in wonder but never hope to possess Today many of the hands of Americans and other untitled people and many ropal jewels have been put onflre market and sold to meet the pressing neces sities that have overtaken some of the proudest and once the most powerful familiesAmsterdam in Aolland has been the worlds great center for the cutting and sale of diamonds for a long time and is so still A writer under a recent date declares that there is an extraordinary demand for diamonds which comes not only from the United St Jesbut from all European countries It was supposed that the present conflict between Russia and Japanwould check the demand front European countries but it can be safely stated that not only is Russia not bjing missed but jthat the demand fraIl other sources cannot ber satisfied 1 Thie is particularly ihteresting in the face of the fact of the immense discov eries in South Africa but apparently there are never too many diamonds to supply the demand Where the passion gratilfysatisfied

prominent Perryville man said this that Engineer Comstock of the Osborne Engineering Company of Cleveland Qhio was at the head of the engineering corps and that the company of ten men had for some time been work on the survey from Lebanon- to Perryville Last week entire was spent by the force on the four miles of road between Texas Washington county and War ners Hill whit is the most difficult grade on the entire line The Camp was moved Saturday to W Parks place two miles from Perry ville and the force will likely get to that point by the last of the week and Harrodsburg next week after which they will return to Perryville and survey the line to Danville After both surveys have been made will be determined whether it is more to build to Harrodsburg or to Danville and the probability is tha everything being equal in the amount of stock subscribed Danville will get the new line There is now more hope than ever i for the belief that the enterprise will be go and the moneyed interests of thisc eyeIongetting the line is that Perry ville is very anxious to have it If it is built to Harrodsburg the grades are such as to proclude the builders coming less than a half or threequarters of mile of that place If built to Dan Perryville will get the line too it is safe to presume that the com efforts of Danville and Perryville be at work for their individual inI

Harrodsburg and Burgin will begin The fact that the capitalists are paying for this survey and not asking the three cities to put up for it would indicate that they mean business They will also survey the route from Perryville to Danville If Harrodsburg and Bur gin want this line they should be up and doing Danville put up many thousands of dollars for right of way for a road that stopped at

it is drowned out by the clamor of optimism that comes from Illinois Iowa Kan sas Nebraska the far southwest the Pacific Coast and the wonder ful Spring wheat crop of the NorthwestPossibly one wheat

the pot Such hens should be fed only once a day at night the meal should consist of a pound of lean meat to twenty hens with a handful of fobr them to hunt up They will then be hungry during the day will whileIa thrown out at night will cause them to keep at work until late Meat contains little fat producing elements if lean and will pro mote laying as soon as the sur plus fat is removed which can only be dorie by compelling theI hens to exercise If the hens are kept on this exercise diet forI a week or ten days they will be in better health afterwards and if they wellbthe one meal per day may be continued To Keep Potatoes Fresh How to keep potatoes in good condition from the time of diging in th fcFall until the new crop is ripe the next season is a subject often discussed and one of the utmost importance writes J W Ingram of Bradford Pa in the Prairie Farmer They must be kept without freezing which can be done either in a pit or in the cellar The cellar must not be too warm or the potatoes will sprout before Spring- If kept in a pit they must be removed as soon as the frost isr out of the ground or they will sprout there When removed from the pit or from the cellar they must not be piled up in a big pile or they will sprout in aI short ti eThe writer has had the best success in keeping potatoes in good condition for plant ing in the Spring and eating through the Summer as fol lows Digging as soon as the tops commence dying in the Fall storing in a darkened outbuilding until Winter is approaching then putting them in the cellar in box l- l xa Ies about 3 by 4L feet where kept a little above point until Spring When the danger of freezing in the open air is over they are taken out and spread all over the floor of a storehouse not more than two or three potatoes deep with the arebcarefully shoveled over about once a week with a wooden s op or a fork made on purpose bringing the under tier of pota toes on top each time This shoveling them over destroys the desire to sprout ancl does not injure the potatoes Whenever it is possible let your fowls be killed and dressed before sending them to market Live fowls cannot alwaws endure a journey They suffer from coldexposure crowding lack coopseAs a rule they lose weight on the journey also By shipping dress ed fowls they can be sent at less expense and they will bring higher price per poundas well as beingmore readily sold A male and twelve hens selec ted and placed apart from the other fowls will produce all the eggs desired for hatching on the majority of farms and it will con sequently be a saving of room and feed if all the cockerels are sold There are too many useless and flocPk to allow a profit when the males and nonlaying hens are retain ed Reduce expenses by get ting rid of them before winter comes 4W Railroad Accidents There are many more dangers in this country than yellow fever For instance the last accident report of the Interstate Com merce Commission covering a period of three months shows 1781 collisions and 1321 derail ments resulting in the killing of 232 and the wounding of 3713 people In addition there were 909 killed and 14397 injured in other kinds of railroad accidents The Indianapolis News com menting on this report says If the country had a battle with such a casuality list it would be the topic of the time But this casualty list is recieved in a way that is illustrated by the Secretary of the State Board of Health In nine days six people died in New Orleans of yellow fever in the same time eleven died in Indianapolis of tuberculosis and nothing vaS thought ofityet one is as preventable as another Similarly when we killour hundreds and wound our thousands by preventable acci dents in the course of railroad travel nothing is thought of it we accept it with the indifference of the Oriental to what he thinks of fateNashville Banner Jake Reitmann and wife were shot and painfully wounded by Reitmanns brother Louis

possession of the rich and strategically important island of Sakahalin to the limitation o Russias Naval power in the Far East and to the surrender of th interned Russian ships of war In return Russia has given noth in save a promise to purchase one half of Sakhalin at a price deem ed fair by neutral judges Viewed in the whatbwas asked and what was give as the conditions of peace the benefits of the conference itsel as its diplomatic honors res with Russia But it should not be forgot tha back of the conference was war In it Witte and Rosen faile to figure and the names of Ko morn Takharia

the conference in which Japan has surrendered more than any other victorious nation in modern history finds Japan in control of Korea in the most fa vored position of any nation in regard to Manchuria

to us that the time has come when there should be more side walks in Columbia For the same amount of money there is scarcely rany improvement that can be secured equal to sidewalks and in reality scarcely any other that is so badly needed With every street and alley grav eled the rough side walks are not in keeping The safety as well as the comfort of those who live in town is involved and while it may seem a little burdensome to construct whebit is done no one would volun 1 tarily return to present Conditions for double the cost There is scarcely 100 feet of good walk in the town outside of the public spuare anda past of that in bad shape The icouncil may not share any blessings while the making of walks should proceed but afteiithe little storm of protest andtgrumbespass off they would be endorsed Make walks and make them before the snow comes The agreement between the representatives of Japan and Russia a weekt1hrrwas welcomed by the civilized agreementtwas due to Russian dpilomacy or Japanese jmagnanmity willnot cut a figure in the great good that comes with peace The fact that the beligerents have agreed on terms of settlement set aside the cannon and sheathed the sword is of itself sufficient to make the world rejoice The les son inflicted by terrible defeats on land and see may prove valu able to Russia while the brilliancy of such victories to the armies of Japan may invigorate their am bition and lead on to struggles of greater magnitude It is a Mon golian victory over Caucasion people and may lead on to great er struggles and bloodier wars at no remote future To our mind Japanese victory means more than amerei settlement be tween the ttwo contending na r tions The rapid advance of Ja pan in political power the shrewdness of her land and na val commanders and the loyalty and unflinching bravery of her soldiers and sailors point to the time when Mongolian blood may units and follow its ambitions on 7 the field of battlee r fi iY i ay fr The advance in lands in Adair county Jias reached a point that looks scarry to some people anti yet they cannot give a real good reason for their apprehensions T iTe have heard for the last three years direful predictions as to what was going to happen to those who bought farms in this county and up to this good hour no one has been hurt except those who sold and innbother parts of the country With out a single exception the pur chasers of farms in Adair county have acted wisely and could sell now at a considerable advance while nearly all of those who parted from their realestate have found that it takes money to secure farms in other parts of the world Today farm lands and in fact all kinds of realestate are bringing better prices than at any time in all the past and while this is true yet the danger point from collapse in prices is in the far future and many dollars per acre below present values A few years ago values of land selling prices were so low and farms so hard to sell as to impress the people that farms in this sec tion had but little real value It was then as with some now to see only the dark side at home and the bright beyond the Miss issippi They sold and went West Some did well some re turned and others there who would like to be located back at the old home At that time land was cheap in the West but con ditions have materially changed since then It requires money and a good deal of it now to own westernIplanes and water scarce and bad The set tling of the West has been rapid and complete The available lands have been taken and pu under cultivation so the opportunity of a few years ago has passedand the western move Checked The checking of emigration from the old states has had its influences and to this largely the advance in landval ues is due There is no reason to expect people to sell good homes in a good country with pleasant surroundings at old time prices to take chances in a crowded storm beaten west Kentucky is all right and Adair county is all right The lands of this county are productive the water supply inexaustible and pure and the most thing needful to press values to where the rightfully belong is the awakening of our farmers to the good that surrounds them rather than chasing fortunes in their dreams over arid planes of the West Fix up that dwelling build poarches and other con veniences put on a new coat of paint build a good barn repair fences sow grass and cultivate fewer acres but do it thoroughly and within a few fleeting years land now selling a t ten to twentyfive dollars per acre will be sought at double that price The cheapness of lands has kept adI follow It is the time to buy farms the time to improve them in this county If your farm is too large sell part of it to a prog

over and before the busy work of the fall begins There are good reasons for advising early fall plowing The main one is to conserve the soil moisture and prevent its escape from the use of Fall sown crops When culti vation ceases there is a crust formed on the soil that aids evaporation and the aim is to pre vent the evaporationif the moisture is to be kept where it is needed Plowing breaks this crust and forms a sort of mulch on the surface which holds the moisture in Where there are weeds and grass plowed under it gives them a longer time to decay before the fall crop is sown Prof King who has made many experiments along this line says that there is a strong tendency in climates where there is plenty of soil moisture for early Fall plowing to develop nitrates which are the plant food most likely tabe wanting in the soil Plowing early prevents weeds growing after the other crops are taken off Now the ground is generally in good condition for plowing and later it may be hard and difficult to plow as the Fall is usually dry The great amount of rain that pas fallen this Summer can be stored up in the soil for future use The so called dry farming that is attracting so much attention in the arid West is only an observance of this fact They make the J r I tc oJJ I RN q- C EI sa N ROUTE eye u xrc amount of moisture they have serve the best purpose Plowing early and then keep ing the surface loose and fine by an occasional harrowing will make a better seed bed and crop I than to wait later Ex FOR SALE Farm of 273 are miles south of Columbia Ky on Columbia and

Saw Cumberland MdA number of bears have been killed in Pocahontas county West Virginia in the last few days One weighing 100 pounds that had killed 11 sheep on the N J Brown farm was shot by E E Nottingham George Glad well and J F Evans The bear had a 17pound trap attached to its foot which it broke from its moorings The bear had a record for killing scores of sheep Among time losers were Alexander Hef ner and James L Sheets- A bear Was since caught in a trap near Stony Bottom by D D Hamrick A large bear was killed by a man named Delaney at Penick Meadows This bear also had a trap attached to its foot It was shot by Delaney in a laurel thicket The bear was apparently dead and the hunter walked up to it The bear rose suddenly and came atDelaney who took the animal by the head and beat it with the butt of his gun A little dog seeing the unequal con test saved his masters life by taking hold of the bears hind leg The bear turned and the hunter was enabled to shoot and kill the animal There are plenty more bears in the mountains but as a rule bears are vegetarians and only a small percentage of them kill sheep COONS BAFFLE UNCLE SAM Government Raises Game Fowls on the Gulf Coast But the Animals Eat En Up New Orleans LaThe rederal gov ernment and the state of Louisiana will probably have to abandon their plan to use Bret n island on the gulf coasfr of Louisiana as a game preserve for the propagation of prairie liens and other fowls owing to the immense number of raccoons that have preempted the claim Although the island is a small one it is said by the game wardens that within its few square miles there must be between 5000 and 10000 coons of all kinds About 15000 prairie hens were hatched this year and as soon as they become of an eatable size they were devoured by the coons The same has happened to a number of other varieties of game t fowl which the government has endeavored to propagate on thd island The Breton islands are some distance from the mainland and are difficult of access It was for this reason that they were selected as a preserve But the coons were not counted upon and they have spoiled all the plans A force of trappers and hunters is to be sent to the island after the coons but so great is their number that it is feared that they cannot be exterminated Hair Tunis White in a Night When the superior court of Connecrrticut
