From him we gather ed the following He was en route across the country going from Sparks ville to the Gradyville neighborhood in tending to remain over night with a friend The section through which he was passing is thinly settled and Mr Scott got lost He noticed two men seated upon a log in the woods and he approached them for information When he got near enough to tell them of his difficulty one of the men said throw up your hands using an oath and at the same time leveling a double barrel shot gun Mr Scott was unarmed and obeyed While the gun was peing pointed at his head the sec ond man went through his pockets se suring 2650 After securing this money Mr Scott was permitted to go He says he is satisfied that the robbers do not live in Adair county REWARDs I will pay a reward of one

in the old days for thoroughbreds in the South Then the racing events tested the powers of endurance of the animals and so made the blood valuable for other breeds Thus arose 4 mile performances These excited the attention of the whole country and horses on the order of Grey Eagle and Wagner became household talk with all classestBut that largely ended viththe- Civil war and now it is altogether at an end And yet the South is still to be taken into account In the Easten view to which we have just referred the South is made to appear as heroic in the days of its poverty Men and women used to fortunes smiles went to work with a will and through perseverance and economy they rebuilt ruined towns and cities and reconstruct ed the industrialsystem The South has grown richer andricher from year to year so as able sliveryJ as The new generatien is more earnest and practical and les dreamy and impulsive than th old one and the probabilities are that it will never again become wholly absorbed in racing Still as love for the turf is bred in the bone racing in the South will not fail even under adverse circum stances to excite a good deal of enthusiasmWhat of enthasiasm and among what class We have a statement on this subject from a Nashville paper There is it observes no denying the fact that the best interest in rnnning races is dying out in the South The Sport of Kings has surely peopleIt looks to the contrary under ex isting circumstances is only as a spasm in the seeming This can be attributed to various causes but honest investigation will show that they all lead to the same source and can be stated in single sentence by saying that racing has fallen in to the hands of the gamblers and their set Home and Farm Hon JohnK Hendrick of Paducah has announced his can

substance he said to them Boom your own town advertise in your home newspapers The first part of this injunction applies to all classes of citizens ofS any community A man who townIhe should vote whatever advantages it may have and talk of them and should seek to increase these advatages He owes something to the town where he earns his living and makes his home and there is no better way of paying the debt than by cul tivating local pride An Arizona editor expressed this sentiment- in somewhat extreme language when he said If you come from Hell brag of it This mental attitude of satis faction with ones home even if assumed at first soon becomes established on a sound basis and and genuine and not only tends to personal contentment with ofha man looks for attractions in his surroundings and insists that they exist he will find them when he talks of them and points them out other people will see as he does and the opinions will spread and strengthen Natur- allY as local pride grows the disposition will be to bring about improvements in directions where reform is needed Just as the public is inclined to take a man at his own esti mate and it is therefore advis able for him to think well of himself so will it accept his opinion oi his home city If he speaks apologetically or it whe he goes on his travels he will gain nothing for himself and will leave a bad impression of hi town which may somehow react to its injury On contrary if he sounds its praises on all convenient occasions he not only conveys the ide that he is satisfied and prosper ous but

com mittee was fully demonstrated Saturday at Frankfort when Gov Beckhams friends were voted down Claims heretofore made that Hager and Hines were in the saddle have been rideculed and a few of the antiadministration faction would believe that there was a serious split in the organization Gov Beckham they believe was still in control and they were of the opinion that a play was being made to the galleries It was HaKgar they said and that unless the Governor was willing to make Haly walk the plank he would b made to suffer The threat was considered idle and the Governor was advised to pay no attention to it Saturday however the opportunity was of fered for Judge Hager and Judge Hines to make good and in away unmistakable showed whc was in control of the party or ganizationJudge made a gal lant fight but he was voted down He threatened to resign but all to no purpose As a result Judge McQuown resigned as Chairman of the subcommittee An effort was made to have him reconsider but he said his resigntion would have to stand It is hinted now that he will resign also as chair man of the State Central Commit tee but this is denied by his friends Mr McQuown says the call as adopted is in violation of the party laws and he will have nothing to do with it The trouble came up in the committee when a report differ ing in the following particulars from the one offered by Judge McQuown was adopte- dFirstInthat the work of se lecting the precinct officers is delegated from the State Com mittee to the County Committees subject however to the submis sion of lists by the candidates and to approval by the subcom mittee of the officers named by County Committees insteadof the State Committee appointing from lists- SecondIn that the returns from the election are to be can vassed by the CountyCommittee- and the result certified to sub committee which will canvass the returns and declare the result in stead of having the certificate come directly from the precincts to the State Committee and can vassed by that body ThirdIn the total assessment of candidates for expenses is fix ed at 32000 instead of 40000 which Mr McQuown thinks will be necessary to defray the cost of holding an election such he construes must be heldunder the primary election laws MARK TWAINS BEST After Mark Twain had spoken for half an hour or more at one of his lectures jyears ago says the Boston Record he concluded t y tk at 4 Ait f to take a brief rest and without a word of explanation he stopped talking arid sat down v The audience hardly knew what to do After a while some one more bold than the rest got up strode down the aisle and went out Some one else followed and in a few minutes the hall was emptyVery good lecture Mr Clemens said a local dignitary who was trying to be polite You mean the first half of it was the reply The second half has not been delivered cc Not delivered almost shrieked the local dignitary No said Twain his compos ure not the least disturbed while the usual merry twinkle was in his eye but we have money for the whole and I dontsee why we should worry if they only take half John W Hughes has announc thattto draw frow the race for Demo cratic nomination for Congress in dise trict R W Miller who was a candidate died and W J Price also a candidate withdrew be cause of ill health MR WATTERSON ON THE PRIMARY What the Democrats of Ken tucky most need at this time is a square deal What too many as pirants for office seem to want is a little the best of it Old ideas of honor of brotherly love and of the party welfare seem to have droppedout and in lieu of them how to play to advantage more or less unfair rule the roost among contempory file leaders and party managers Mr Watterson then says this is equally true of Republicans and the conditions in Kentucky do not materially differ from those existing in other States He deplores the calling of the primary a year in advance of the election and lays particular stress upon the assessed money charges of the primary which are so ex cessive as to shut out the poor man altogether Better call the whole thing off gentlemen says Mr Wat terson 1It begins to smell already and before you are done with it it will stinkHe then says the Democrats owe their posession of the State to the fatuous blind folly of the Republicans rather than to any merits or their own He says that more unpopular leadership than the Democrats have commonly had can hardly be conceived and if perserved will cost the loss of the State He deplores the new angled primary because of its many complications and chances offer ed to the rich and uncrupulous to get in their work Concluding Mr Watterson says referring to the primary In short and in fine call th- edd thing off and give the poor man a chance

of those who admire old fashion honesty and while a man may succeed in hiding his meth ods from many yet in due course of time his makeup will become known In every sphere of life this is true and in newspaper work in particular Anyone who writes for publication whether editor or contributor should not forget that he is placing himself before the intelli gence of the country and that the language and expressions of others should not be used with outgiving due credit Itis as wrong and as foreign to justice I for a writer to seek to build a reputation on the thoughts and J expressions of others and even i morel contemptible than the methods employed by t e slick dealer to amass a fortune It is a false position and true man hood scorns such methods Those who contribute matter for

fact every word is copied The News ap preciates any good production for publication and especially the product of those who desire to better public conditions but it wants straight goods It wants genuine contributors and not false exploitersthe real writer and not one who seeks to build reputation on false ground The News does notfget its editorials from an editorial bureau on the banks of the Potomac and does not desire toaid in making any man a reputation on the efforts of others We do not deem it necessary to define the word machine to the able editor of the Somerset Journal although he

1896 W J Bryan has comspcuousI During that time he has performed a feat never before performed in the history of American poli tics He has stood the acknowl edged leader of one of the great political parties declaring its doctrines and making its issues jn every campaign and yet holding at no time during that perioda public office The conclusion is that it is the man behind his principles and not the position he occupies that secures an audi ence for every utterance and makes it popular Men may lis ten to Roosevelt because he is President of the Uuited States A hearing may he awarded the notables of nations because of the official power in their hands and responsibility on their shoul ders Not so with Bryan It is the manmade pure and simple No epaulets but the badge of hon esty no sceptre but the confi dence of the common people no throne but in the hearts of the masses no ermine but the reverence of downtrodden labar of whose rights he is the cheif con servator and expounder he is at once the most popular citizen and prominent statesman living The interviews of no other man are quite so egarly and univer sally rsceived and considered and no other man on his tour around the world was ever hailed with the same uniform respect and recognition of ability Yes terday delivering in a heathern land a convicting argument for Christianity today sweeping the parlament of a great empire off its feet with its eloquence and tomorrow directing the delibera tions of an international peace conference he has shown himself on every occasion the man of the hour the hero of the psychologi cal moment leaving his impress on every nation he has visited During the past decade he has written and spoken freely on all public questions that have been before the people These decla rations and written have come jfrpm Bryan the Citizen have been accepted by the people as from that source and yet with the nakedness of truth and the sincerity of a great and honest man he has fixed his principles indelibly in the minds of the multitudes who have hung upon his words No one today doubts either Bryans honesty or his sincerity Whatever a few may have thought of him in 1896 he has established himself in the confidence of the people as a thoroughly honest man frank in his inter views and patriotic in his purpo seseSince his first appearance asa National leader ten years ago his principles and doctrines haze been subjected constantly to the crucible of political criti cizm Every utterance has been weighed in the public balance And yet Bryan is more popular today than ever before and his- interviews speeches and writings are more eagerly sought for and read It is a probation and victory that few men have ever had to their credit The plain on glthilfmoves is one that few men have II KtL r 1f i a r r l reached even for a meteoric pe riod and on which no other cit izen has ever maintained himself so long Fit demonstration of the es teem in which he is held at home snch an ovation will greet him upon his return from aboardas never welcomed an American and he will deliver a public ad dress forecasting the National is sues of 1908 when he is to be the common choice of

In former times the new country that offered the most attraction to travelers from a distance was that in which gold was taken from the ground in big pellow nuggits or infinit daysf tune but the

Kentucky t This Board again feels it to be a duty to call the earnest attention of our health authorities and people to the increasing prevalence and mortality from ty phoid fever and to the consequent growing importance of the constant use of the methods en dorsed and confirmed by scientific research and observation for the prevention of the disease 13305 cases of this disease and 1579 deaths were reported in Kentucky last year chiefly con fined to people in the prime of life and usefulness The cost of caring for those sick of it to say nothing of the sorrow suffeing and loss of
