us from all sin by your precious blood and take us to be with you eternally Amen or Jesus Christ we implore you 0 Eternal Lord have mercy up uo us and ours Deliver us from all evil through your precious blood Oh Jerusalem Holy nameA was heardto say that they who write this prayer shall be delivered from every calamity One who heard and paid no at tention to it was punished by an accident They wjio write this prayer for nine days and deliver through the mail beginning the day they receive it sending only one each day shall receive great joy after nine days A copy of the above letter is being circulated over the country promiscuously with ho name signed or post office at the head Those who recieve them are sometimes puzz d to know what to doI not know who the author of the production is He or she may be honest but they are giv ing some people unnecessary trouble in writing the nine letters who perhaps fearing some calam ity might come upon them if they do not write them yia view of helping those who may recieve such letters and who may have some supper stition about them I write the following criticism The author claims that a voice vas heard to say that they who write this prayer shall be de livered from every calamity one who heard and paid no attention- to it was punished by an acci dent Now those wio copy this letter and send to others withour knowing the uthor or any thing as to the truth of the statement is taking a leap in the dark Those who claim to have some new revelation from heaven ought to read the last chapter of Revolations 18th verse If any man shall add unto these things God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book The author of the above pro duction has added a new revela tion so claimed and Gods an athamy rests upon him or her It costs 18 cents to send the nine letters through the mail and it takes a buVof time to write them The Lord Jesus teaches us when we pray to say Our Father who art in heaven etc This prayer is addressed to the Lord Jesus Christ We should ask the Father in his name If any of those who have writ ten the letters ccording to directions and have received any great blessing speak out and dont be afraid to sign your name If the author of that production should see this criticism dont be afraid to tell who you are and what your object Is in putting such a document before the pub lip The author says i one who herd and paid no attention was ji t SistVJ5 1 i f punished by an accident Now every one that copies that state ment may be telling a falsehood because accidents happen to those who never heard of that letter and to claim that our Heavenly Father would send a calamity on any for not writing nine letters in nine days as threatened is absurd Read Luke 9 5360 Z T WILLIANS

Unlucky indeed is the horse whose owner does not know enough to fit his harness proper- y t Particularly should the col lar fit the shoulders and generally some attention paid to that part of the harness but there are a great many horses that go season after season irritated daily by the- being rest of the leather notI properly fitted In these warm days a horse is quite easily rubs8asimcontinually ilarly if the leather is buckled too tightly inflammation ensues and trouble results There is quite a knack in fitting a harness s norotoo bind as the ancient chron thaticlerno phrase could be coined that tells the story more forcefully If the harness is too free it rubs and bringsgabout the- deleterious same result These conditions are of course aggravated if some part of the harness is ill fashioned and does not take snugly to the contour of the animal In this latter instance no amount of fussing will ever do any good A few days ago the writer met on the road a farmer driving a high strung colt of excellent breeding The youngster was hooked to a cart the shafts of which where flipflapping about from side to side with every inequality of the highways The result was that the colt was nearly crazy from irritation In addition the backI stray was too short the back band too loose and the breeching far too tight One of the blind ers was torn loose from the head stall of the bridle and was smash ed against the head with every toss It was a sorry outfit in deed The writer was requested to say what was the matter with the orney cuss7 A cord to tie the blinder in place the taking of the slack out of the backhand the loosening of the breeching one wrap on the shaft the press ing into service of the hitching strap toXbind the shafts into place and stop theirwiggling was the work of only a few moments and when it was done the colt went off easily and apparently gratefuljfor the kindness of a stranger The owner remarked that he had never before considered that it made any difference how a colt was hooked just so he could not get awayEx- A LESSON ON ETIQUETTE For lo these many years the Independent man has been eating corn on the cob by holding one end of the cob broken between the two first fingers and the thumb but those good old days are no more says the Ashland Independent It isnt etiquette any more to eat it with the fin gers one must use two highly decorated and becarved little sil ver forks one of which is shov ed into each end of the cob Some personwe will take a long shot that it was a woman has invent J ed the cob fork idea and spoiled all thefacury of going after a hisurlous ear of corn v all drip ping with good country butter iJ and dashed with salt and pepper J with both hands and teeth some i eu 4 l i tVvt J f 4 4sdrt J t 1f ti t 1 t r I f lyr t I r f times with both cheeks as well Maybe that isnt a dainty way to eat corn from the cob but it is a mighty good way and easy way What if one does get the butter up and around his ears and all over his chin That will all come off with a proper application of the napkin And now to think that one must for all time to come taboo that good old habit throw aside that dandy oldfashioned style of disposing of a delicious roasting ear Shame on you inventor or in ventress Twas an evil day indeed when you sought to do away with the fingers in eating corn from the cob We hope that as long as you live you will never enjoy another roasting ear but that you will crave the delicacy until your dying day and that if you ever do eat another ear you may stick yourself full of holes with your old forks that have robbed we common people of all the pleasure we ever found in eating corn on the cob LOVE PLANTS OF WEST INDIES Did you ever hear of the love plants asked Captian Atwater of the schoolship Saratoga who was showing several visitors over the old craft the other day I have several in the cabin He showed three small leaves attached to the ceiling by strings They were without any soil or foundation but were green and from each there sprouted a dozen or more little leaves greener and fresher than the main leaf itself During our last cruise in the West Indies the Captian con tinued I visited a deserted En glish fortress which was grown over with shrubbery A native plucked several leaves from a vine and told me to hang them some where and write the name of my best girl on them If they die he said she does not love you If they sprout she does I put my wifes name on one and my two daughters names on the others You see although they have been without nourish ment for three months all three affections seem assured WHAT ARE YOU WORTH How much are you worth Measured by the tapeline of this worlds valuation you ar rich or poor worth much or little accord ing to the s you own Measur ed by the rule of Heaven you are worth just what you can take with you into the new life A man who posesses in this life a million dollars is not worth a cent a moment after he is dead Bank books are out of place in a mans coffin Shrouds have no pockets All the wealth of the universe could not purchase a single moment of time or help a man to retain his hold upon his earthly riches for one hour You are worth whatever of good deeds you have to your credit on the other side of life If you have been honest up htfqll of kmkness and have budded o character along these lines you are ri h1fyou have been nor rowminded covetous grasping hardhearted selfseeking you are poor indeed even the the 1 wealth of a gold mind is yours t Prbe Ir r rs BRAIN lEAKSI Prayeris a petition not a de mand It is easier to laugh trouble away than to cry it away All the worlds a stage and the press agents earn their moneyYou can not down a man who uses his failures for building stones Yesterday was a failure if you can not recall it with pleasure to day The easiest way out sometimes provides the shortest way in again A lot of men have lost character by striving to built up repu tation You can not estimate the good a church is doing by the height of its spire God measures the gift by thei heart of the giver and not by the size of the gift We are too apt to think about the virtues of our friends and talk about their faults The man who spends all of his time boasting of his ancestry is not giving his posterity an equal show If the women ever strike for eight hours a whole lot of men will go to working overtime with out pay Dont make the mistake of thinking the opportunity knocks but once Opportunity knocks every day A half truth is a whole lie Regeneration words from with In A corporation is known by the men it keeps A man is rich when he has what he really needs Giving a shirtless man a col lar is not philanthropy The poorest man we know owns nothing but money Only a fool seeks temptation in order to prove his strength A lot of men who think they are independent are only con traryThe hardest way to earn a living is to hunt for an easy jobI The best way to get even with your enemy is to help your friends Bad bread is a stumbling block to a great many men who want to be Christians The men who see the little things and do them are the men who accomplish great results We have often wondered dur ing the hot weather if the sum mer girls are as cool as they look Too many men spend so much time getting ready they run out of tome before they begin EDUCATING THE FARMER A plea for the education of the American farmer was m deby President Butterfield of Rhode Island Agricultural college in a commencement address at Nebraska college He says what thure farm Theman behind the ployrr not the plow nor the team nor the furrow bufrthe man is the chief lacton What sort of pee pie are tw8T lve upon Qm i d f i hq RNiN i t h o fu d Ji f rr t r rwt farms What is to be their con dition Are they to be owners of the land they till or tenants on vast estates Are they to be an intelligent educated independent people or are they to become peasantsa caste of hard work ing honest but dull and un promising men with the hoe Are the American farmers to keep pace with American civil ization with all that implies of opportunity for social privileges political intelligence educational endeavor moral stamina Or are they to lay behind until hopelessly lost in the distance with some future Goldsmith to bewail their decadence Every farmer should become aI better farmer and education helps to make him better The whole American civilization rests upod the basis of education The development of the rural school the one vital question that must be settled by the coming generation in its attempt at mak ing better farmers Besides the schools farmers institutes the press cooperative tests fairs all are great factors and are doing more to encourage and ad vance education The farmer must be made to understand as President Butter fled said that the man behind the plow is the chief factor More brains must be put into the work instead of all mucular energy Better farming is the fundamental need of American agriculture today and it is to the knowing farmer that we must look for this better farm ing and the knowing one is the educated one SOME STRANGE FOODS Strange foods are used by People in different parts of the earth On the California coast men prize the simple sculpin which is despised by the lowest eaters of fish on the Atlantic seaboard Indian children in Arizona are taught to catch ants for the reinforcement of the food supplies In South America the large lizard the iguana is a delicacy not to speak to the larger snakes which in taste are like chicken The ordinary rattlesnake it is said is good eating Some people devour the common grasshopper with great gusto Ground to a powder it is1 said that these insects make a meal that is at once nourishing and palatable During of locusts Indians collect them in bags wash them and cook them for a meal The most singular food in all probability is the larva of a fly common in certain portions of California and known asephydra This insect is found in vast quanities in Lake Mono Califor nia is washed up on the shores in vast windrows and can be cols lected by bushels When the larvae begin to appear the Indians gather from far and near and scrape them up place the wormlike creamresnt clothesin the sun and dry them Then they are eaten acts The Music Cure To

had gc t into the habit of spending all his evenings away from home was brought to his senses in the following way One afternoon his father came to him and asked him if he had any engagement for the evening The young man had not Well Id like to have you go somewhere with me The young man himself tells what happened I All right I said Where shall I meet you He suggested the Columbian Hotel at 730 and I was there When he appeared he said to wanted me to call with him on a I lady One I knew quite veIl when I was a young man he I explained We went out and started straight for home She is staying at our house he said I thought it strange he should have made the appointment for the Columbian under these cir cumstances I said nothing Well we went in and I was introduced with all due armality to my mother and sister The situation struck me as funny and I started to laugh but the laugh died away None of the three even smiled My mother and sister shook hands with me and my mother said she remembered me as a boy but hadnt seen much of me late lYe Then she invited me to be seated It wasnt a bit funny then although I can laugh over it now I sat down and she told me one or two anecdotes of my boyhood at which we all laughed for a lit tle Then we four played games for awhile When I finally re tired I was invited to call again I went upstairs feeling pretty small and doing a good deal of thinkingAnd then asked his com panion Then I made up my mind that my mother was an entertaining woman and my sister a bright girl E Im going to call again I en E joy their company and intend to 5 cultivate their acquaintance 5 ExIE Splitting Headache can be often relieved by a nerve seda- tiveE but the scientific way of treating a headache is to go right down to thE real cause or root of the

history oi American industrial piracy One is appalled at the enormity of the crimes of which the multi millionairpackers of Chicago are guilty as disclosed by the Govern ment investigators It would seem incredible that the owners of these vast busi nesses would permit food pro ducts to be handled under such horribly indecent conditions were we not pretty well advisedjof the greed and lust for goldJlat any price which dominates the aver age American industrial million aire For it must hot be forgotten that back of this whole revolting disclosure is the Beef Trust mag nates greed for profits It is cheaper to slaughter and pack meat products under the diseasebreedin g co n d i ti o n s which obtain in the plants of Beef Trust than under sanitary conditions That means more millions for the families of the unspeakble Beef Trust poisoners who in de iance of law throttle competi tion and absolutely fix the price of meat food products in this country Is there a crime against eith er law or common decency which the rotton industrial oligarchy of this country will not commit Is it any wonder that there is asocial unrest Is it any wonder that as disclosure after disclo sure exposes to view of an outraged people the system and men who first combine to rob and then distribute through the regular channels of trade food unfit for human consumption a great class hatred should be growing up in this country The man who in the heat of passion to evenge some real or fancied wrong commits murder forfeits his life to the State The average murderer is a re spectable citizen compared with these Chicago meat packers if but half of the charges against them are true By his brave course in themat ter of these disclosures Theodore Roosevelt has again proved him self a most fearless champion of the peoples rights He ha made it impossible for my member of Congree to vote against rigid meat inspection bill and remain in public life jlizabethtown News Dont Let Baby Cry When baby cries something

bear arms and to fight for his rights can give a good reason why he should be entitled to the privilege of living in a free com munity The decline in the mili tant spirit in the Northeast dur ing the first half of this century was much to be regretted To it is due more than to any other cause the undoubted average in dividual inferiority of the North ern compared with the Southern troops at any rate at the be ginning of the greatlwar of the rebellion The Southerners by their whole mode of living their habits and their love of outdoor sports kept up their warlike spirit while in the North the so called upper classes developed along the lines of a wealthy and timid bourgeoisie type measuring everything by a mercantile stan dard a peculiarly debasing one if taken purely by itself and submitting to be ruled in local affairs by low foreign mobs and in national matters by their arro gant Southern kinsmen The militant spirit of these last certainly stood them in good stead in the Civil War The world has never seen better soldiers than those who followed Lee and their leader will undoubtedly rank without any exception as the very greatest of all the great captains that the English speak ing peoples have brought forth and this although the last and chief of his antagonists may him self claim to stand as the full equal of Marldorough or Welling ton THE CHARACTER OF LEE When the future historian t comes to survey the character of Lee he will find it rising like a huge mountain above the undul ating plain of humanity and he will have to lift his eyes high to ward heaven to catch its summit Be was a foe without hate a friend without treachery a sol it dier without murmuring He was a public officer without vices a private citizen without wrong a Christian without hypocricy and a man without guilt He was a Ceasar without his ambi tion a Frederick without his tyranny a Napoleon without his selfishness and a Washington without his reward He was obedient to authority as a servant and royal in authority as a true king He was gentle as a woman in life modest and pure as a virgin in thought watchful as a Roman vestal in duty submis sive to law as Socrats

of Attorney General Mr Garnett- is not unmineful of the many kind expressions but at this time lie is not ready to announce his candidacy We do not desire to conceal the fact that he is con sidering the proposition and future developments may lead him to enter the contest Fouryears ago he was urged to make the race but for good and sufficient reasons he had to decline His candidacy at this time would be Demot crats of the Eleventh district every one of them political fighters from the rising of the sun to the setting thereof Besides Mr Garnett has a wide acquaint ance throughout the State He is a good speaker a lawyer en 1 joying a fine practice and an af fable gentleman popular with every to3y and a vote winner Should he enter the contest and be so fortunate as to receive the nomination

the U Mitchell Law because our neighbor and friend Hon J M Mitchell the representative from Green and Taylor counties introduced and procured Its pass age Many important laws were enacted during the

what we do and not so much what we say that opens the door of hope that transforms in difereence into activity and gives encouragement to others Why not start the rock crusher Noble resolutions are not worth a pinch of snuff if paralyzed in infancy by indifference The building ofa few miles of pike in this county seems to be in the stretch of despair for 1906 Enterprise and Thrift are twins They

feel that I have at least a fair claim to the support of friends of ed ucation throughout the State and especially from that great body of men and women who have so faithfully cooperated with me in therecent struggles for educa tional legislation I have for many years past done what I could to promote the cause of public education and tSlexertedeveryeffort power to secure system of State Normal

very respectfullyM WINFREY SENATOR McCREARY ANNOUNCES To the Democats of Kentucky I have in various newspaper interviews declared my candidacy for United States Senator and I now over my own signature sub mit to you my candidacy for the the nomination as United States I Senator according to the plan an nounced by theDemocratic Executive Committee of Kentucky For the honor conferredupon me in 1902 when I was elected United States Senator I am sin cerely grateful I have tried to be faithful and efficient and the manner in which I have discharged my offcial duties I leave to the unprejudiced judgment of the people of Kentucky- I have always been in favor of primary elections fairly and legally held and I have always been opposed to bossism and ma chine rule When I was first a candidate for United Senator the other candidates and myself agreed to a primary election to be held two months before the elec tion of United States Senator by the General Assembly but the State Democratic Committe did not deem it best for the good of the Democratic party and refused to order the election The proposed primary election is ordered to be held many months earlier than any primary election to nominate either State officers or United States Senator was ever held in Kentucky oranY other State For many ariliri manes or conventions inT our State to nominatie State officials have been held in May or June of the yearinwhichthe candidates J nominated were to be voted for at the November ectjon andit has been heretofore belevedthat said priinaries should rmjteocctir wnen presidential or cohgTessipn al elections are heldso that Na r rA Ir1tV I tional and State issues would be separated The primary election ordered to be held on the 6th day of next November will occur on regular election day when Representa tives in Congress will be elected ancf this primary election was called eighteen months before the election of a United States Sena tor by the General Assembly and two years and eight months be fore the Senator elected can take his seat in the United States Sen ate and the candidates for State offices will be nominated twelve months before they can be elect ed and the call for a primary to nominate them so early is in vio lation of the rule adopted by the Democrats at the last State con vention in 1904 The success of the Democratic party should be paramount to the success of any individual and the governing authorities of the Democratic party should act for the benefit of whole Democrat party and not for the benefit of a few Democrats The outlook for Democratic vic tory in the next national election is brighter than it has been in years and becoming more favor able every day Kentucky Dem ccrats should give no aid to rule or ruin policies but uphold wise and just policies that will keep Kentucky in the Democratic col umn with an increased Democrat ic majorityI perfect confidence in the Democrats of Kentucky and I willingly and gladly submit to their judgment and their action my asairations toa second term in the United States Senate- I have always been a faithful loyal Democrat I have worked and made speeches in every cam paign in our State for thirty years and I have always when in office given all of my attention to the faithful discharge of my duties and when our State had been Republican for several years I was requested by the Democratic au thority to take charge of the cam paign in 1900 I managed the campaign visited many counties in the State and organizedand made many speeches and with aid of my brother Democrats we redeemed the State from Repub lican rule and gave a majority to our candidate for Governor and our candidate for President Precedents are not lacking in Kentucky for giving to her Sena tors whose services have been satisfactory second and third terms and as Democrats have not objected to or criticised my record I am asking for an endorsement Legislation on important ques tions and great issues now before our country concern the welfare of the people more than ever before and I trust my experience and my investigation make me better equipped for faithful and efficient discharge of my duties if I am reelected The Democratic party in Ken- tuckY is small when both political parties vote their full strength Our majorities in recent years as compared with those of twenty five years ago

Frankfort Machine and things political are not running as smooth as they have been politically in the capital city Judge Hagar who was slated as the candidate for Governor has not announced although all the other machine candidates have come out The cog that has slipped is in the Governors race and it is intimated that Governor Beck ham who has a political head as long as a fence rail is a little afraid that Hagars candidacy would handicap his aspirations for the United States Senate Hager has been in office for eight years Four years as Treasurer and four as Auditor This fact and his personality does not make him a specially strong man for Governor Then he is not a speaker and a candidate for Gov ernor has to go upon the stump The Democrats have never nominated a candidate for Governor who could not make aspeech and most of them have been spell binders Governor Beckham is so strong that he might pull Hagar through but with his usual sagacity Beckham wants a running mate to help him and not a dead weight to carry Hense this thusness at Frankfort and no announcement from Hagar There is another signifi cant thing McCreary is an an nounced candidate against Beck ham for United States Senator He is about as shrewd as we make down in Kentucky He can see the Jiand writing on the wall that the young Governor has all the best of it in a primary election A few days ago he was atFrank- fort and dined with Governor Beckham There were some thingfe talked there that have not come out The News has done some pretty good guessing re cently and we believe that we can give the public a tip as to what these two very smooth gen tlemen decided to do They prob ably went over the whole situa tion very carefully and especially the danger to the party in the November election if a ticket was made up entirely of machine candidates Governor Beckham probably suggested to Senator McCreary that this condition of affairs could be prevented that all danger of party defeat could be removed and that the primary in November would become dead easy Senator McCreary of course wanted to know how this could be done without hurting him Beckham then told him Withdraw from the race for the Senate and become a candidate for Governor Unite your forces with mine I will succeed you in the Senate and you will succeed me as Governor It is very pretty plan It brings strength to McCreary We do not know of course whether the senator saw it but we believe he did and that he will become a candidate for Governor ina short while Of course this would leave Hagar high and dry but something will be given him if he will accept it and if he dont then he will just be left out in the cold This is our tip as what happened in Frankfort last week As to how it will work we are not prepared tosay if it dont work it will be the first mistake that gang ever jyr r made It is known that while McCreary has never been with the machine he has never been against it and that he helped Blackburn very little if any Stranger things have happened than we have outlined above Elizabethtown News Amazing It is amazing how many mothers will give their children medicines contain ing violent and dangerous

is forced to do this Should we stop sub scriptions when time expires nine times out of ten the subscriber would give us a calling down for insinuating that his credit was not good Rather than to cast a reflection against the hon esty of a subscriber to pay a small debt it is next to necessity for a home paper to continue sending the paper after the time has expired It is not necessary for the city

Creek district which will be taught by S L Coffey will be gin on Monday July 2nd W S Sinclair will teach at Pellyton Speaking of schools reminds us of some of the greatest obstacles in the way of the progress of the schools such as failure on the part of so many pupils to attend irregular attendance want of a suitable house and apparatus the necessity for a better supply of text books and soforth and the question is how can all these be obtained We reply when the masses of the people really want better schools they will have them and no sooner A strong healthy sentiment on the part of the people generally in favor of good schools will remove these obstacles and establish a better system of puplic education It is a self evident fact that the com mon school system of this State and this is preeminently the school of the poor man and the great common people is not in keeping with the demands of the present day It is not preparing its pupils to meet the requirements of the presentday

Winter and Spring your olfa in your excellent town in the capacity of teacher in one of the schools and has since had a desire to express through your splendid paper the impressions a sojourn has on leaving Columbia The claims made by the citizens and press of your town in regard to the kind ness and hospitality of its people are not exaggerated but fail to do it full justice at least suchwas my experience Surely no other place can boast of more courteous and obliging business men they make you feel at home from the time you enter their places of business and you feel it is good to be there They combine hos pitality friendship and business and this makes their business grow The freedom from preju nice and the genuine spirit and brotherly kindness existing be tween the churches is another worthy of comment Indeed it was often difficult to tell who were the member composing the membership of a church because the different churches were so liberally attended by members of other churches and it was pleas ing indeed to note that the ministers seemed to encourage by their example this commendable spirit of charity Columbia has a just right to be proud of her splendid moral citi zenship
