the many things a knowledge of drawing may be used in the many ways in it may be helpful Many said it was lack of information as to what the study of drawing really is If it is a lack of calling attention to its importance and usefulness as a r study for the children of our town we will in future do what we can to bring- it before the people Eighty Last Saturday December the 2d was the 80th

itself of eight years ago The improvment is still going on with every progressive newspaper man and in every progressive community While we believe the advances made are largely due to the men engaged in this import and field of usefulness yet we are as cer tain that the reading public is be coming more and more appreciat ive of such efforts and attainments The time is not far distant in our

sister Did you tread grandmas letter It is t surely too good to be true Just look here Elsie and read for your self grandma insists that we spend Thanksgiving Day with her and with a flourish she pass- i ed to her sister a neatly folded paper slightly scented with he liotrope upon which was written in quaint staid characters the following jIDay with you as I have been wont to do A severe attack of rheumatism has rendered grand ma a helpless old lady I shall expect John to bring you and the children to spend that day with me Your sister Jane with her husband and children will be here and I promise with old Bebbys help to try and have the old house looking bright and cheerful Jack will meet you at the station with the sleigh I charge you to wrap my dar lings up well for the drive from the station will be a cold one if the weather continues as it is t Your devoted mother Jane Seymore Mays eyes danced with de light Oh Im so glad Elsie isnt it just delightful Why 1grandn1as is the place to spend Thanksgiving Day any way Ive told mama that ever Thanksgiv ing I can remember But she al said well our house isways newer and more comfortable and it will do grandma good to leave that gloomy old house for awhile Gloomy Elsie re pe ited Why it isnt gloomy at all and besides a real Thanks bedeaten at grandmas I told ma ma that once myself and she didnt say to me it was because the old house was not bright like ours she s idarid here Elsies face became dimpled with merriment She said it was because we always got into so much mis chief when she took us down to the farm I exsect I shall get into mischief too since cousin Bob is going to be there You know May I never failed Im going to try to be on my good behavior for mamas sake but gracious I just know itll be hard and the saucy little miss threw back her head and laughed I long andmerrily Now look here Elsie May said slowly and with dignity Its all right to have fun but you are so like a boy please do not be so haram scaram You know how prim Rose Fairfield is just try not to mortify mama to morrow Well I did promise you May Elsie answered trying to look solemn Im just going to be good as I can be Ill begin right now and go down to help mama get things ready for morning With this she scampered off down the stairs her sister following more slowly rather doubtfulas to how well Elsie would keep the resolution she had made Thanksgiving Day dawned clear and beautiful a heavy snow had fallen during the night and Mother Earth was wrapped in a mantle pure and immaculate as the robe of an angel The air was crisp und the snowbirds twittered on branch and twig The sleigh bells rang merrily and allnature seemed smiling its oft1Isnt it a pleasure to live in a climate like ours May Kion exclaimed on their way to esta I tion from grandmas Fd feel more like living if could get a shot at em birds rl tf 1f i i rn fl V S ttJ t j i o n t tr j1rty ndtar r there matter of fact George answered Em listen mother May exclaimed from her perch behind Lots of good it does George to study grammer she addedwith a toss of her head that plainly expressed the disgust she felt at Georges false syntax Never mind my dear Mrs K ion gently remonstrated Georgy is a boy and we must overlook these things occasional ally i Humph George answered witha disdainful shrug of the shoulders You neednt over look my gramatical errors for that reason because boysve got more sense in a day than girls in a weekIThe girls at this moment pretended to be deeply interested in a cluster of red berries that gleamed against the snowcover ed hedge like crimson drops Mrs Kion vouchsafed no an swer but Harry grunted in ap proval from under his fur rug and George well satisfied with himself struck up a merry tune in which Harry joined lustily Grandmas at last their father exclaimed cheerfully as old Jack drove through the arched gateway and up the long winding driveway towards the houseIMay said it was gloomy here Elsie cried It strikes me as be ing anything else The old house did look cheerful enough sitting back in its grove of fine old cedars the bright fire light gleaming through many windows the smoke ascending in blue wreathes agsinst the lofty snowclad catskills in the back groundAs neared the house there smiled upon them from the par lor window a sweet kindly old face about which was a halo of silvery hair that shimmered in the wintry dearbangel face that all have loved grandmothers Now at numer ous other windows there appear ed the saucy faces and curly heads of many cousins come to smile their welcome The door was thrown open and Uncle John and Aunty Jane appeared In the open doorway with open arms to greet them Almost before they were aware they were gathered about the great open fireplace ablaze with cedar backlogs and with cousins and aunts ready to relieve them of wraps and fursIOh this is a great eXIclaimedisnt it just delightful May cried enthusiastically Grandma had really done her best The blinds were up the mantels were heaped with cedar and bright berries and the easy chairs though stiff backed and prim looking were dragged from their accustomed corners and placed jn the brightest andmost conspicuous places The aunts and uncles gathered themselves around grandma and the merry crowd of cousins trip ped off down the broad hall at the end of which wasa huge fire place ablaze with lightand gathIedThis is a capital fire for pop ping corn Sam Fairfield declar ed and I saw a fine popper hanging in the pantry this morn ing and strings and strings of popcorn too he continued in a loud voice Grandma said we could pop it and if youll come with me May well get em and itll be fine fun I can promise you he added eagerly clapping his hands to emphasize what he had said Bob who was not particularly fond of popcorn did not appear at all enthusiastic l hj ffl I1N 1 t it iti ji i L Elsie looked up caught sight of the expression on Bobs face and remained silent Bob was her favorite cousin and she would have willingly have sacrificed her fun ratherthan have differedwith him Bobs approval was not essential to Sams fun howevor and without more ado he bustled off to the kitchen and soon re turned with the coveted popper and an armload of corn ready for fun Soon they were shout ing with glee and sb intent upon what they were doing they failed to see that Bob and Elsie had quietly withdrawn to the lower end of the hall and were busily engaged in what appeared to be a most interesting conversation It The morning passed away Dinner came with its turky and pumpkin pies and other good things too numerous to mention Such a dinner as one generally eats in New England on Thanks giving Day awayIand they gathered around the supper table that shone with silver and grandmas best china and groaned under its weight of good things Old Bebby was kept busy pass ingandreplenishing the dishes for these sturdy boys and girls needed no appetizer other than the crisp healthful air that breathed of cedar and pine Strange to say Elsie was missing and no one had as yet noticed her absence Grave Bob glanced stealthily around now and then andmore than once peered into a dark corner under the stair way at the far end of the hall which had for the occasion been converted into a sort of dining roomSuddenly his eyes kindled he put down his knife and fork nervously and coughed in his napkin to hide the smile that played around his mouth Pres ently Rose Fairfield Bobs sis ter threw her hands up to her face and screamed in terror and almost simultaneously a shriek from her baby sister rent the air Harry Kion dropped the drum stick upon which he had been chewing vigorously and howledaloud My dears what is the matter Mrs Kion cried in alarm tOh aunt Mary just look to wards the corner where old man Smith hanged himself Rose sobbed her face still hidden At this juncture all eyes were turned toward the dark and as some superstitious people declared haunted corner at the for end of the hall in the direction of which Bob had cast so many anxious glances within the past few minutes Sure enough they all saw plain ly enough a white figure with head thrown back and arms ex tended as though in supplication A general panic now ensued among the children The old people guessed it some prank being played upon them but were so busy trying to pacify the little children they did not no tice George Kion had quietly reached for his grand fathers gun that hung in its rack above his head Old Bebby however who had until this moment stood speechless and paralyzed with fright let fall the punch bowl she held and throwing both hands above her head gasped Oh coarse George dont you go shootin no ghost lessen you hab silber pullits in your gun aint T done told you dat time and time agin George dont shoot Bob cried in terror rushing to where he stood Itsbut too late for his words were frowned by the report followed by the most blood curdling shriek One lus ty and strong such as only could be uttered by one still possessed of flesh and blood Then to the r frp J Jf a Ps4 t itS aar horror of all the thing sprang toward them and Elsie from un der her drapery groaned Im shot Im killed Im dead and fell in a heap at her mothers feet moaning and sobbing Old Beffy now wonderfully re covered from her fright saw at a glance she was not mortally hurt and springing forward gathered her up in her great black hands and shook her vio lently causing the bird shot to rattle like pebbles upon the floor exclaiming at the same time Dead you vixen youse de libest dead chile I eber did see Dead pity you aint she added contemptiously as she placed the frightened child bpon her feet and stalked off to the kitchen there to restore her shattered nerves as best she could Fortunately the gun had been loaded with bird shot and most of them had burned themselves in the thick woolen blanket Elsie had wrapped about her Some few however had penetrated in to her breast and shoulders and caused her no little uneasiness as she lay on the couch with pen itent Bobs arms around her Grandma almost in hysterics was carried to her room Elsie after her wounds wounds had been dressed with tears in her eyes begged all to forgive her declaring she wouldnever again cause them so much troub le Bob too was profuse in his apologiesElsies father looked grave and taking both their hands in his own saidYes my children this must be a lesson to you both What appeared to you to be an innocent prank might have cost Elsie her life Grandma has gone off to bed with her nerves shattered Bobs baby sister barely escaped having a spasm and George is all broken up over having shot his sister And she promised to be good May sobbed I just know mother will never again come to the farm she added re proachfully Les she leaves sis at home Harry answered Or Bob one of the other George ejaculated Playing old man Smiths ghost was a lesson to them both however for a great many Thanks giving dinners have been eaten at grandmas since and Elsie and Bobnever failed to be present Nothing serious has resulted save that once Elsie set old Bessie s wooly head afire after having been dared to do so by Bob who immediately set things to right by dashing acanof milk upon the blaze Dear meek little grandma overlooks il all smiles tenderly upon Elsies roguish face and prays that He who doeth all things well will bring her dar ling safe to spend an eternal Thanksgiving before the Great White Throne of His love VIVIAN COY 4 Kentucky Kernels Many nutting parties Million

is a patent fact that cattle without horns wil- make greater gains in flesh in th feed lot than the horned animal as they are on more equal foot ing1as well as tamer and les nervousCattle breeders on the range- and those in the more Eastern States have rightly read the sign of the times and in order to meet the popular demands many ranchmen are dehorning their young cattle while breeders of native cattle are striving to secure hornless cattle from horned breedsWarren Gammon of Des Moines Iowa one of the pioneer cattle raisers of that State aud Secretary and Treasurer of the American Polled Hereford Club states that it is possible secure hornless cattle from hoed breedsImprovment is the order o the age in things agricultural especially in the traits of livestock remarked Mr Gammo- to a representative of the Kansas City Drovers Telegram There is a growing demand for hornless cattle If a breed has any objectionable characteristics it but natural for the America- breeder to strive to eliminate these objections The eastern cattle feeders who are coming west for their feeders want them hornless The eastern cattle feeders want the very best and they feed for the export trade Horned cattle can not be exported Without horns the steer fatten- quietly and faster than the stee- Swith horns The herd that i hornless fattens more evenly as they are all on the same footing there being no bosses to drive th more timid ones away Thes- are conditions with which every cattle feeder is familiar The production of hornless cattle can be accomplished with out the use of a saw It has been

well known burglar At the trial it was shown that although the night was warm the thief who was of delicate health had worn a light overcoat which crushed the petals of the flower beneath and these had fallen to the carpet when he had opened his coat to stow away the jewels which constituted the greater part of the spoils Although the clew was a slight was correct and the luxury 1loving crook

ROBBERY Over 4000000 filched from Ken turkians Annually b Looting Life Insurance Companies The nation stands appalled at the exposure of the corrupt meth ods of the big life insurance corn panies of New York The ex posures show that they have used the money of their stock holders and policy holders to corrupt ihe judiciary arid Legislatures to buy the very Presidency of the United States to control the market for speculative purposes to buy the influence of United States Sena tors to control the leading law yers of the State to enrich fami lies to pay princely salaries tqv squander by millions to gratify whims and extravagances There never was in all the history of the United States anything so appaling and the end is not yetWhatever may be the extent of the terpetude and rascality brought to light by further investigation it will not do the policy holders any moneybis gone and the thieves who should be behind prison doors will never be convicted With the millions at their command they will be able to thwart jus ticeThe investigation has shown one thing however conclusively to the public that life has been conducted on insuranceII extortion that bezn more than twice as high as they ought to be and that the millions yea hundreds of mil lions that have been taken by tables fixed for the purposes of Deception have been used for nearly every corrupt purposes under the sun except for the benefit of the policy holders Let us see how this robbmg business has effected the people of Kentucky The report of our State Insurance Commissioner for the year 1904 is as follows Paid in Premiums for Life Insurance 731555650 Paid out in losses 305557959 So the people of Kentucky are contrlb millionadollars more for life than it receives for insnralceI is several times more people pay for the entire support of the State government It is several times as much as we pay to carry on all our schools It is sufficient to build four State Cap itols It is two dollars a year for every man woman and child in the entire Commonwealth It is ten dollars a year for every thelweting in the East at the expense of such states as Kentucky Every year our people are pay ing this enormous tribute to greed that such corruption and extravagance can exist as is now coming to light as to the man agement of life insurance com baniesThe excess of what Kentucky pays over what it receives from life insurance shows conclusively that insurance is just twice as high as it ought to be That the insurance company now charging John Smith 200 per annum on his policy could reduce the same to 100 and still leave the insurance company twentyfive per cent profit on the investment- It shows that thousands of peo Insure their lives if theprates were right who are not now able to do so on account of the excessive premiums Kentucky should not sit tame ly by and submit to this extor tion upon her people We are talking about the development of our State what better develop ment tour we have than to de vise means of keeping 4000000 people There are no greater leeches sucking the life blood from the a y1ul people than these insurance or ginations that are taking from Kentucky every year 7300000 and 3000000 Our Legislature will soon be in session and this question in its importance overshadows the elec tion of a United States Senator or any other proposed legislation- It is matter that ought to be met with courage and with Intel ligence and the peoples millions saved from the cormorants who sit on 12000 rugs draw 100000 salaries and spend 250000 a year on lunches In New Zealand where the gov ernment carries on the insurance the premium charges are less than half what they are in this country The same thing can be done in this country The fig ures for Kentucky prove that it can be done- Kentucky can insure the lives of its citizens at one half what the old line companies are now charging It could keep in the pockets of our own people 34 000000 annually This is not government ownership or municipal ownership It does not in volve buying anything It does not involve anything but the use of the public welfare clause of the constitution to protect its citizens- from extortion to enable people to insure their lives who are not able under present exorbitant premiums The State Insurance Commission could collect prem iums and issue policies on the credit of Kentucky the County Clerks could send in applications upon the payment of small fees Reputable physicians could make the examinations and the prem j iums would pay all the losses People who are now paying 300 j a year in premiums could carry the same insurance for 150 Those who were insured at the age oj thirtycolflpnow at the age of fifty carry a policy with the State at a sum riot greater than when they first insured If this business can be carried on at half price in New Zealand it can be carried on at half price in Kentucky The State shoul either step in and do this or els2 the rates of life insurance miut be fixed by Legislative enactment as railroad rates are to protect the public from extortion and robbery 4c 5ajIWith competing electric lint S of railroad that will carry both passengers and
