F T few days in which it is made to appear that Judge teak had at New Castle r declared the County Unit Law uncon stitutional In this they are all mis taken The validity of the law was not a nuestion and the decision was as to fJg rights of J T Scott the plaintiff who had applied for license to sell liquor in New Castle vs the trustees of that town The question was one of law as to whether or not they had a right under the circumstances to refuse f Scott a license The question involved j ernJL J i New Castle alone and had nothing what ever to do with the constitutionality of the County Unit or Local Option Law Judge Peak decided that the trustees of New Castle had no right under the law to refuse Scotts application The defendants will take the case to the Court of AppealsShelby Record

Senator George T Farris one of the pioneers in tem perance legislation in Kentucky who has been identified with th movement for years has writte- an open letter to the Rev M B Adams president of the Anti Saloon League in answer to his letter to the Democratic candidates for State offices Senator Farris letter is direct ly addressed to the Rev M B Adams and reads as follows My Dear Sir My attention having been called to your public letter addressed to the temper ance people of Kentucky I beg as one of them to submit the followingIt be denied that I have the right to speak as one of the temperance people this right being acquired by many years of hard labor and incessant effort Many years ago before either you or your recent recruit Gov Beckham had thought of enlisting with the temperance hosts 1 began my fight for the cause I consented to become the Police Judge of East Burnstadt Laurel county at the cost of my own Is not your espousal of Gov Beckhams cause due less to the fact that he is worthy than it is to the fact that Gov McCreary was the leader of the Democratic forces in 1900 and thus es poused the cause of the man whom you hated Gov Goebel Have you ever liked Senator Mc Creary since the day he bared his breast to glittering steel and headed the Demoratic forces battling for what they deemed their rights Have you ever liked him since that day when calling the dismayed hosts together risking the assassins bullet he gave them advice and spoke words of encouragement and thus saved the State from greater disgrace and more fearful bloodshed Do you advise as a Democrat as a friend to Democratic principles 3lf so have you my brother the password Perhaps you advise a president of the AntiSaloon League Let us contrast the recI ords of both men In 1898 Gov Beckham was Speaker of the House A County Unit Bill was introduced What became of it Do you not remem ber the scathing denunciation made by your predecessor Dr Kerfoot against the Speaker for his opposition to this bill Do you want that denunciation repub lished Dr Kerfoot says he was against the measure in 1898 Do you deny it In 1902 and 1904 I know so do you that Gov Beckham did nothing whatever towarn assisting the passage of the temperance measures but rather hindered their passage IIi 1906 do you not know that at no iimejjid he assist in or cons ge of the Coun Liginally drawn 4 with the power to summarily summon and examine witnesses in these matters this power be longing only to grand juries This law also allows private cit izens to appear as prosecutors accomplishnmore as a prosecutor than as a Judge I resigned the office and after hard struggles succeeded in running blind tigers and whisky out of the town You must re member that this was at a time when the people of the moun tains were different from what they are now I was threatened abused and otherwise mistreated by the desperate characters who then infested portions of our mountains Afterwards as Sen ator from the Eighteenth Sen atorial district I became the au thor and champion of the Coun ty Unit Bills In 1902 and 1904 I introduced the measures Against political and personal friends I waged incessant war and had I then had the assistance of the Governor the County Unit Bill would have passed When the present measure was up I left business and family and was among the foremost of temperance workers I fought a good fight and my efforts were not in vain Of my work for temperance I need not speak fur ther My labors are public and can easily be ascertained- I have not thought it necessary to exploit what I have done for righteousness and temperance for any reason personal to my self Nor do I complain of hard ships or sacrifices nor do I pose as a martyr to the cause What I have done was for Gods sake and He will guide the results I have refered to my connection with the temperance cause only for the purpose of showing my right to speak as one of the tem perance people You seem to complain of your expenditures and labors in the cause Do you believe that if you have suffered as you say it is known to God and from Him alone must come your reward Are you in the business for remuneration or for the love of God humanity and countryComing now to the matter in hand I must say that I am surprised that you seek to make our cause a political issue in the Sen atorial race Why not make it an issue in the Governors race The Governor of the State has great power for good or evil a Senator none At least one of the candidates for Governor is a well known temperance advocate I have not known of any appeal of yours made to temperance people for votes for this candi date Are you not actuated a little by some fancied grievance against Senator McCreary Do you remember in the troublous times following Gov Goebels death how you abused the Democrats and how when prayers were needed and divine guidance r Jy wanted you as a servant- e lowly Nazarene refused voke the guidance of God ou remember how you re d to pay for the Legislature se they espoused Goebels I I have often wondered Christ would have done had min Frankfort and been to seek his Fathers guid that body of men Was IBeckham the presiding j officer of the Senate in this Legislature until his elevation to the Governorship Yet you refused to pray for him What has he done since that he should be heralded as the great apostle of tem perance and righteousness- At no time was he willing to support the bill as its friends had drawn it It may be said that he saw he could not get such a bill through but to those who kndw the power wielded by him over the last Legislature such a state ment will have but little weight As a matter of fact Gov Beck ham only agreed to the bill after I had told him that his assistance would be a leverage in his hands whereby he might defeat one of my best friends Do you not re member telling me that my talk with the Governor had had the desired effect What talk Why that talk about the leverage of course Governor Beckham is posing today as the apostle of temperance not because he is in favor of it but because of the singlewhich he advised the passage of a local option measure You speak of the Governor as being in all things temperate and sober Do you not know that he has not always been so Do you not know that his past until at least very recently has not been a guarantee of his future Do you not know that in the past he has not led a life that could in spire hope in the breasts of the temperance people Since when has this change been wrought As the primary draws near Over six years ago he became Governor and not until this primary near did he think it proper to enforce the Sunday law It took him six years to find that it was his duty to enforce the laws It will only take six hours after November 6 for him lightningchange artist that he is to forget it Senator McCreary asked Gov Beckham some time ago the question that if he Beckham had not received financial aid from the liquor in terests in his past races To this good day no answer has been made public If Gov Beckham was their friend and ally a short time ago and if he had received help from them will he not re turn to his first love at any time his political exigences may de mand Is not Gods Sabbath as holy in Covington and Newport ac in Louisville The lid is not on in either place What surety have we that this sudden change of front is real and lasting In 1873 Senator McCreary was Speaker of the House In that year a local option law was first enacted McCreary was one of the foremost champions Since that time his whole public and private has peen for righteous ness and temperance In all his acts he has shown that he can be counted on the right side Whether as a private citizen a legislator Governor Congress man Senator as a lawyer as a husband as a member of that quaint old Presbyterian church at Richmond he has ever shown how he stands He has ever displayed those characteristics which make assurance doubly sure that in the future as in the past he will be true to his God his country and true to himself and his early training Senator jr i tr A McCreary has again and again denied that he has ever now or at any time received aid from the liquor interests and surely no one will doubt the statement Surely not many will bid him nay when he asks for an indorsement of his course An indorsement for a second term not based on any sudden change of front but on a whole life of sobriety and duty An indorsement of a well spent life filled with memories of duty well done toward his God and his country Let the voters take the record of bothmen which can be easily obtained and decide from that which of the two gives more promise of keeping the faith You no doubt remember the story of the Apostle Paul as so beautifully told in Holy Writ how after fighting the churches in Judea and on his way to Dam ascus to continue his persecutions he saw a great light and how God in His infinite mercy called him to a nobler life You will also remember that God didnot see fit to immediately put Paul into service but sent him to study for three years where undisturbed he might ponder well upon the mighty change that was to take place If Gov Beckham is changed if he is sincere in his new role let him have time to prove and give evidence of the faith that is in him It is so an omalous that the temperance peo pIe should be asked to cast their vote against the man who by ex ample and precept has been their friend that I feel constrained to speak Especially is this strange in view of the fact that never be fore have they withheld their in dorsement of any of his predeces sors asking for a second term notwithstanding some of them have not been as firm in their stand for temperance as has Sen ator McCreary Yours etc George T Farris Lancaster Ky Sept 25 1906 Mystery Deepens Mystery deepens as to why so many millions persist in suffering 3

tit S ONE WHO HAD CHARGE OF THE CONFEDERATE MONEY General Basil W Duke in an Interesting Manner Reletes the Incident of the Distribution of Spe cie at the Savannah River in May 1865 The following interesting arti cle on the Last Pay Day of the Confederacy was written by by Gen Basil W Duke one of the most authentic as well as pro lific writers on the history of the Confederate war Perhaps there are few men besides myself still living who remember the distribution of specie at the Savannah river about the 6th or 7th of May 1865 to the men composing the command which escorted Mr Da vis from Charlotte N C to Washington Ga As the date in dicates it was at the period of final surrender and just previously to Mr Davis attempt to es cape I myself have a very vivid recollection of this event and all the circumstances attending the care and transportation of the fund of which this specie was part for I was very much against my will made its chief custodian from Abbeville S C to Washington and in that capacity passed two or three days and nights of as unpleasant so licitude as ever befell me in the whole course Qf my lifeIOn the aftenoon when occur red that conference between Mr Davis and the commanders of the five brigades which constituted the escort which I have al ready described in these sketches and which those who attended it have been accustomed to term the Last Confederate Council of war Gen John C Breckin ridge who was then secretary of war and also actually commanding the troops in attendance up on Mr Davis gave to the brigades to be instructionsI resume our march in tion of Washington at midnight About 10 oclock I received a message from him to the effect that he desired to see me imme diately about a very important matter When I reported to him he informed me that a consider able amount of treasure which had been brought from Richmond was at the railroad stationI and said that it was ne provide for its removal from the cars in which it was loaded and for its transportation along with the escort and said that he wish ed me to take charge of it He instructed me to procure a suffi cient number of wagons for the purpose and to detail a guard of fifty men under a field officer for its protection but required me to personally supervise anything that should be done This was by no means an agreeable duty especially as the general frankly stated that he did not know and that perhaps no one knew the ex act amount of the fund but that he believed it to be between five and six hundred thousand dollars in speciemuch the greater part in gold I represented that if no one knew what the sum was it was a very unpleasant responsibility to impose on an offic required to d h take charge of it It would be impossible for me in the limited time allowed to count the money or even approximately estimate its amount nor could I be sure that the entire amount would be turned over to me An extreme ly disagreeable question might arise therefore if discrepancy should be subsequently asserted about the sum which so changed hands He responded that all this had been considered that it unaI diately proceed to execute the orderI detailed fifty men picked up a guard and placed them un der command of Col Theophitus Steele and four of my best lieu tenants and having obtained theIwas in charge when I com menced the work of some fifteen or twenty employees of the Con federate treasury department and I could not of course exclude these men from the cars because my men had to receive the treasure from them and while therefore guards posted at the open doors of the box cars which contained the specie pre vented the entrance of all parties not engaged in handling it these were so many of these and they were so crowed in the doorway that some of them might have appropriated a considerable sum and the others have not been aware of it I have never learned what was the exact sum of this trea sure It included I believe the Tennessee state school fund and some 4175000 belonging Rich mond banks and was all in gold and silver It was packed in money bags shot bags a few small iron chests and wooden boxes some of them of the frail est description I searched the tallowIwas shown me or that I could wasItreasure from the cars to the wagons and after the latter had been started off and had gotten perhaps half a mile away Lieut John R Cole one of the officers of the guard rode up to me and handed over a pine box which apparently contained between 2000 and 3000 in gold After the rest of us had left the cars he had examined it and had dis covered this box stuck in a cor ner and covered up with a piece of brown sacking On the next day at my urgent request Gen Breckinridge directed the guard should be increased to 200 men and he order ed me to personally command it I suggested that instead of corn posing it entirely of men of my brigadeit should be constituted of details from all five I believe this would be the best method to prevent jealously and Ln Ic suspicion among the men of the escort as well as insure that these details would closely watch each other This plan was adopted Nearly the entire guard was kept constantly on duty day andnight and at every halt a majority of the escort was generally collect ed about the wagons closely watching the guards At the Savannah river Mr Davis ordered that the silver coin amounting to one hundred and eight or ten thousand dollars should be paid to the troops in partial discharge of the arrears of pay due them This was accordingly done The quartermas ters of the several brigades sat up during the night counting and dividing the money and prorat ing it in proportion to the rosters of their respective commands This procedure elicited a lively interest among the prospective beneficiaries of the distribution A throng of men surrounded the little frame house where the money was being counted until after daybreak and the windows were blocked with the eager faces

Gen Breckinridge received the sameI and was for the purpose bourne- on the roll of my brigade At- Washington Ga on the next day I turned over what was left of the treasure to Mr M H Clarke acting treasurer of the Confederate States and was very glad to get rid of it Mr Clarke lived for many years after the war in Clarkesville Tenn and was one of the most successful business men in the prosperous cityMr for some reason gave orders that Gen Bragg and his staff should be paid each a months pay in gold a discrimi nation which occasioned some complaint among those who were not so fortunate I was present when Mr Clarke make this spe cific distribution and listened to a homily from one of the staff offi cers which was rather amusing because of the seemingly incon sistant demand with which it was concluded Gen Braggs ordnance officer was a major or lieutenant colonelOdalowsky- I am not sure of the exact rank nor indeed that I have spelled his name correctly He was an effi cient officer but not popular be cause of his peppery disposition and his curt way of dealing with those who had business with him The cavalry were especially down on him because of a story that had been current for some time among them It was reported that when a certain cavalry command had sent in a requisition l for ammunition for small arms he had returned it with the endorsement Commanding general say No more issue of ammunition to de cavalry De cavalrs swap off de ammunition for de butter and deegg Ori this occasion while Mr X k 2t I Clarke was engaged n counting out the gold which was to be paid Major Odalowsky the latter sud denly and somewhat to the sur prise of all his auditors broke out into a fierce tirade againstV- VV the precious metal Blank blank de filthy stuff he said 1 wish it had never been digged out of the bowels of the earth It tempt a man to very evil It make him false to his friend to his brudder to his fadder It make him do all bad acts I hate de sight of it Just then Clarke pushedV over to him 150 thinking that to be the sum due him But Odalowsky was prompt to make orrection Fifteen dollar more eef you please Mr Clarke he quickly suggested My pay is 165 per month Mr Clarke did not retain possession and charge of the fund very long for in two or three days afterward the entire Con federate government was dis solved and its former officials fugitives I never learned what ultimately became of the money For months afterwards I under stand there was a good deal of excitement in that part of the country over it I beleive there were rumors that it had

and dogs instinctively loved him In h earlier manhood his dress was rich as his purse could buy and his address was as courtly Chesterfield And thereby hangs a tale with which ne set a thousand tables in a roar When Dabney was about twenty years old he attended a barbecue on the Fourth of July On some or another account the orator of the day was detained and Spenceas everybody called him was drafted to supply his place He had never made a speech in public but the audience would not be denied and Spence took the stand and delivered himself of a fervent and patriotic address of nearly two hours duration When he descended from greetedr by an uncle on the distaff side who addressed him to this effect Spencer Iam equally surprised delighted and proud Yours is an inspiring presence yours a handsome person your voice IS magnificent ringing resonant sonorous your lan guage is flowing elegant classic i7t+ r r your gestures are graceful nat ural impressive Spence my boy you need but one

humor that might make laughI lOne night when Spence was twentythree or twentyfour he was playing poker with the judge of the circuit court a total stranger to himself and three or four members of the Pulaski county bar then in attendance ofIjthe lawyers remarked that Spence was an applicant for a license to practice law though in fact Spence had never read a line in a textbook in his life The judge ceased to scrutinize his cards looked at Spence and said Dabney you look like a lawyer laYwYer andd e you a lawyer and so he didr for the next day steps were taken to that endand in a little Spence was armed with a license to practice the profession of Hale Coke Marshall and Pinck m coisuper openedd thereafter he was commissioned a colonel on the Governors staff and after awhile he was

there was in Rus sellcounty where the mountains of Kentucky shrink into the Pennyrile a popular watering place Captain Shannon a vet eran of the Mexican war owned the springs and was the host of the leading tavern of the village It was a popular resort in the season of vacation good fishing and shooting and many choice spirits there consorted Captain Shannon was a fine old fellow a mixture of Squire Western the Baron Madwardine and My Uncle Tobysimpler hon est pugnacious inimitable He was full of impulse and of pre judice and was delightfully whimsical It was not long after Henry A Wise had made the his toric canvass for governor of Vir ginia and Captain Shannon came to regard Wise as the foremost man then living and all his talk was of his ideal Some of his lawyer guests conceived the idea of fetching Spencer Dabney down and passing him offon the old gentleman for Governor Wise and very soon thereafter the joke was put into practice Spencer came in all the glory of coach and four with negro bodyservant and arrayed in splendid attire from crown to sole There was about him all the pride pomp and circumstance of the southern aristocrat of the decade 185060 He had the cast of Vere de Vere the aspect andmein of dignity in fatiguehe was the states man seeking a place exempt from the world Garrickcould not have played the part better Captain Shannon was in an ec stasy Spence was even more imposing overwhelming dignified than Shannon had imagined was possible for Governor Wise thie house were awarded him and his servant had the run of the kitchen At dinner Spence was at the landlords right in the si gle table that extended the full length of the 60foot hall where meals were served His break fast was served in his room because of his late rising his supper was served there too for the veryIthe old fashioned loaf was put in his mint julep and thus for two weeks Spence feasted on the fat of the land and discussed grave matters of state with his host One day when

Shannon was speechless but when he found his voice it was to order that brown sugar should be substituted for white in the juleps Spence drank after that This was all the revenge he ex acted for the cruel deception of a fortnight that he was the victim of About 1857 Dabney went to Cincinnati and became a drum mer for the mercantile establishment of B Simon Cothen perhaps the leading wholesale house in their line in the entire Mississippi valley He declared they were the best people in the world and never tired lauding the Jew as the best paymaster of all as long as you rendered the ser vice He was no salesman for he knew nothing about goods and could not learn As a price 2 and 20 were all one to Spence What he did was to fill the store with customers his friends who loved to hear him talk and who laughed themselves ill at his anecdotes So valuable was he to B Simon Co that the house advanced his salary to 5000 per annum an enormus amount for such service at that period But Spence couldnt stand prosperity Time and time again Simon dis charged him and then he would go to Kentucky work at his trade for six weeks or two months sober up after which his employ ers were glad to have him back It was during the war that he HnIe had been neglectbr and finding a score of acquaint ances in town from Kentucky lawyers docters and merchants induced them to go one by one to B Simons and pretend to do business but to make it a condition that they should first see Col Dabney Before the day was over half a dozen messengers from the house were scurrying over the city in search

He was a rebel in sentiment but circumstances made it so that he was practically drafted to pursue Morgan but Morgan had gone before Spence got on the scene and he played a practical joke on the old

longdistant shipment or for immediate use and local consumption andupon the season and variety The early varieties may be al lowed to mature fairly well and be fully colored and may even commence to soften somewhat This is necessary to attain full flavor in summer and early fall apr les Such fruit of course is not intended for stor age nor will it stand longdistant shipmentWinter species intended for cold storage should be picked when the fruit is full grown and well colored Poorly colored and immature fruits will not keep so well as that which has reached its full color and development If the fruit has to be shipped a considerable distance before go ing into storage it cannot be al lowed to ripen as muc as though it were to be stored immediately- If winter apples good keepers begin to fall from the tree the crop should be taken off at once Maturity in apples is of course indicated by the color of the seed which turn from a light to a dark brown and this may be used as a guide to a certain extent but winter apples should be hard and firm at time olpicking All fruit should be gathered before frost falls Apples for shipment fcoje sold i or to be kept through the winter for family use should be hand picked and no fruit that has fall en to the ground should be among fruits intended for any of the above purposes The stem should always remain on the fruit If broken out a small hole is left and an opening into the flesh was made Decay finds its way in and the apple rots The picker should grasp the apple firmly in his hand and with a slight twist remove it from the twig upon which it grew It should then be carefully put into a basket or in a sack slung over the shoulders Orange Judd Farmer CARING FOR WORK HORSES Here are some very good direc tions for the care of work horses put forth by B B Rice Nebras ka man in the Tribune Farmer 1 Horses necks and shoulders can be toughened by washing them twice daily in a decoction of white oak bark or alum water It is better to do this in early spring They should be put to light work at the same time slowly increas ing the loads if they are hauling This practice will quite toughen their shoulders before hot weather sets in 2 Cut the mane close to the neck just under the collar and if heavy and long trim it in front of the collar so that no long hair will be between the collar and neck 3 Sponge the necks and should ers when the horses come in from work Add a little salt and use cold water 4 Keep the face of the collar clean In hot weather remove the collar at noon 5 At times while the horses are resting while at work step to the front and pull forward the bottom of the collar letting the the fresh air blow upon and cool their shoulders 6 If the horses have lumps on their shoulders mark the spots on the collar where they touch and hollow them with a few smart blows with the face of the ham mer 7 If very bad wrap thick soft clotharound the collar under the harness just above or below the sore or 8 If you have pads on the col lars slit the side or back of same and pull out stuffing over the sores or lumps 9 Apply no grease or salve on the sores it catches and holds dirt 10 With a pepper box dust bo racic acid on the sores twice a day First clean the sores with warm water and castile soap and dry with a soft cloth After all the best remedy for a sore and worn horse is a few days rest Life Is
