information that the President is prE- paring a special message recDir mending legislation in restraint of trusts Not because this C n gress is likly to enact any meas Ure that will have the desired effect The trusts are too firmly intrenched in Congress to justify the belief that any legislation t that will be adequate will be ableto run thefgauntlet rBut1he mere recommendation will apparently be a confession that the campaign against the trusts of which we have heard so much has proved a failure The decision of Judge Humphrey is cited as a reason for more legislation But the decision of Judge Hum phrey was based on a clause of the Constitution and no legislation can repeal that Another clause in the Constitution pre vents so it is said an appeal from the Chicago decision If this is true no sort of law can thougheddoubtless a law might be made to enable the Supreme Court to paSs on the law without subjecting parties to a new trial But is it really necessary that this be done The packers and others who have been violating the anti trust law may have obtained im munity for all past offenses That at least seems to be the official view and it is likely to prevail But does anybody suppose that these offenders intend to respect- in future the law which they have so long violated with impunity If they do the country might well agree to let bygones be bygones especially as no exI postfactolaw can be passed If however they do not obey the law hereafter it will be possible- to get other indictments not based upon testimony obtained by the Bureau of Corporations This can be done without any new legislation- No doubt it would be well for the country to get a better anti trust law But there is no pros pect that such a law can be had speedily It is better therefore that the Department of Justice should look to the enforcement of existing law than to mislead the public into the belief that some proposed legislation will make the convictions of trusts easier That legislation will only be possible when we get a Con gress that does not belong to the trusts Courier Journal MIKES RISE IN THE WORLD Mike Reddy was a railroad man at Boise Idaho well known and well liked by everybody One night Mike fell beneath a train and had both legs cut off He was taken to the hospital and recovered in a course of time His accident cost him his savings as well as his legs and after he got around again his friends subscribed several hund gyred dollars and sent Mike to Chi fd cago to get two cork substitutesfi He came back in a month or two walking spryly but he didnt seem to be the same old Mike People looked at him as he creeped down the street and wondered Finally a committee of his friends asked him about it Mike they said what did they do to you up there in Chica of8olegsNothing that I know of Mike replied Yes they did You look dif- ferentthan when you went away What was it Oh said Mike grinning I know what you mean I was always a short feller with me

RECALLED The following from the Hus tonville correspondent to the Danville Advocate will interest many of our readers over in Ca sey and along the boundary line There died a few days ago on the Rolling Fork in Casey an aged man lThos3 Evans 94 whose deathrecalls one of the fiercest and bloodiest tragedies ever wit nessed on the streets of Liberty On that day Bell and Magoffin candidates for Governor had an appointment to speak in the town This was in the Spring or early Summer of 1860 The voting population of the county as sembled as well as greatnumbers from this county among them Bill Owsley who hadlmoved to a fine farm near here aSfew years previous from Lancaster Ows ley was a bad man in liquor and would fighthis weight in wild cats when insulted On this day red liquor was much in evidence in Caseys Capital A difficulty sprang up between Owsley and Granville Johnson which ended by Owsley drawing his trusty Colts and killing him in his tracks Evans the subject of this sketch and a brotherinlaw of Johnson sprang at Owsley with a knife and he was shot down one hip broken Pandemonium reigned after this shot Valand Tuck Peyton neighbors and kinsmen of Evans and Johnson 7 then engaged Owsley who shot at every one who menaced him Tuck Peyton wash soon disabled but Val a man of cour age ands wonderful physique went at Owsley with a barlow knife his only weapon It only required a few minutes for him to finish the fight Owsley was literally hacked to pieces and was carried into a room of the Napier Hotel where he lay for weeks before he could be brought home In due time Evans recovered entered the Union Army under Col Wolford was severely wounded and was discharged Tuck Peyon likewise joined the same command was shot in the neck at the battle of Mill Springs early in the war was brought home paralyzed but lived about forty years afterwards a mental and physical wreck During all these years he drew a pension of seventyfive dollars per month Owsley sold his farm near here moved back to Lancaster and af terwards entered the Confeder ate army dying soon after the close of the war A Badly Burned Girl or boy man or woman is quickly out of pain if Bucklens

is just as commendable a type of patriotism as one can find and no matter how much your Patriotism boils over on Fourth of July in a general way if you are disloyal in little things to your own town

marriage ceremony in just one minute and beat the record of Judge Crossland onehalf min ute tr jwr SELECT YOUR SEED CORN NOW F B Mumford of the Missouri Agricultural College calls atten tion to the fact that farmers might with greater profit select seed corn before spring work be gins Numerous investigations he says have shown that in the average year a Missouri corn field has seventyfive per cent of a stand That is to say the Missouri farmer will plant and cultivate 100 acres of corn and harvest 75 The cause of this is poor seed He offers this simple methodjof testing seed corn Put several old newspapers in the bottom of a box and wet them Then spread a white cloth with checkerboard squares on top of the paper each square being numbered Now number the ears to correspond with the squares Take three grains from each ear and place them on the cloth in the square bearing the same number as the ear Put another clothon top of the grains and place the box in a warm place In four or five days they will have sprouted Now start with If all three of the earfrom that ear have sprout ed vigorously it will do for seed but ifthe grains fail to germinate or show weak and spindling sprouts throw the ear aside and so on for every ear In this way almost a perfect stand can be secured which means a much larger yield per acre THE WINTER AND PRICES As the winter has been very mild there has been more than the average supply of eggs on the market those contemplating a corner with high prices be ing compelled to sell at a sacri fice the hens breaking the cor ner unexpectedly Those who were fortunate in having good wellcaredfor stock have not been disappointed in their expectations The winter had its influence on poultry as well as on everything else but the poul trymen no doubt have come out successfully Prices will con tinue up to the average for those who wish to have that which they desire in the poultry line will buy it at all times and while the chickens and eggs are as good as cash money the farmers who keep thier hens in laying condition will fully realize all their expectations Purebred fowls will pay at all seasons of the year and there is no reason why farmers should continue to breed only the common kinds Great Activity- Is shown without any disagreeable af ter effects by Dr Caldwells laxative Syrup Pepsin in going to the seat of your trouble when

And the government makes sure that if it practices no huggermugger itself it allows no one else to practice huggermugger either Its hand is upon every corpora tion big or little public or private that transacts a dollars worthof business in Switzerland Every Swiss corporation must publish at regular intervals in each year a detailed and exact statement of its condition the amount of business it has trans acted its profits and the disposition thereof all in plain black and white The penalties for juggling with the figures are such that the corporations do not dare to lie for in Switzerland no distinctions are drawn between corporation rascality and individ ual rascality and the officers ar held personally responsible for the corporations acts The government provides an official peri odical for these reports no stock company can escape its columns Moreover a corporation in Swit zerland has no chance to play tricks on its stockholders Any two stockholders can at any time demand to see the books or know anything they wish to know about the concern Ifa corporation should refuse the information the stockholders would go into court and the court would in an hour have the whole thing mix

woman from the place of Mr Charles P Cecil and the fact that the ne- gro was lost at the establishment together with the fact that a ne- gro answering his description was seen walking with the hearse bearing the coffin about three miles from Danville indicates that the negro was in the coffin when the search was made for him and that he afterward was released by confederates and con tinned on his

Jhas been the highest priced meat on the list for months but buy ers are now looking for opportu nities that cannot be very remote Already the advance guard of the spring calf crop from the immense dairy districts contigu ous to Chicago has made its appearance and knocked prices from their high pedestal Milk Is high and dairymen are not going to feed it to calves but the policy of shipping light 100 pound calves to the stock yards is a poor one as they are hard to sell at any price and are frequently condemned This calf crop is evi dently destined to be hurried to the shambles as rapinely as

Fall believing it to be to the best interest of the town to postpone action until the f busy season has passed Wheth er or not this is the wise thing to do is not for us to say but to the industrious the busy season lasts twelve months and will doubtless be as hard to get desirable help f inthe fall as at present We are i inclined to believe that the bulk t of the work should be done in the J Fall months and know that the council can exhaust its resources 1 for making streets within a month or so of real activity but there is mpre hinging on the starting and testing of the crusher than in or dinary cases The county has laid the foundation for a better sytem of roadmaking but at present has not yet agreed on plans The belief that a rock crusher can be used to great ad vantage has a deep hold on the Fiscal court but before it invests i any money in such machinery desires to see one thoroughly r tested Aware of the action of the town council in its purchase t the one now on the public square t the court appointed a committee to witness its operation before determining its plan of action It is likely that inaction in the town may produce inaction in the county and thus block and cripple the most progressive move yet 1 undertaken by our county The town is interested in the county roads and in our judgment could t well afford to put the crusher to a test at an early day if for no other purpose than to stimulate the making of roads without her borders A test of three or four days would be sufficient and would enable the Magistrates to outline t their plans of making roads If the machine will do what it is represented to do it will well serve both town and county ahd r in that event we trustand believe 1 cooperation between the two I would set up and the interests
