account of an exper ience of Mr Ernest T Willis former ly of this place but now a druggist of Glasgow is taken from the Nashville AmericanThe of this place have been giving E T Willis the druggist the broad smile today Just before clos ing his store last night it was necessa ry to put up a new barrel of linseed oil After the faucet hal been put in place Mr Willis closed for the night but after going a short distance the thought occurred to him Suppose I didnot fasten that faucet tight and that barrel of oil runs all over the store 1 Retracing his steps he open ed the door and went to the rear of the house to have a look at the barrel which seemed to be all right put to be perfectly sure he gave the faucet a pressit being of the cutoff kindand broke it half in two He placed his hand over the hold to stop the flow of oiland found that it took considerable pressure to keep the oil from running out as the barrel contained about sixty gallons He looked about for some thing with which to stop the hole but could not find a thing He tried to force his handkercheif into the hole but the loss of a gallon of oil was the re sult Then he began to yell and his hand at people who passed an those who saw him merely waved back and passed on He yelled Fire an Help but to no purpose In th meantime a half hour had elapsed an his hand was almost paralyzed For another half hour the performance was kept up until a boy noticed something almostt Mr Willis admits that the laugh on him but says it was one of the mos trying ordeals he ever experienced DEALSe Stults Bros Co Purchase Number of

which brought on that battle were the forced evacuation of Corinth by Beauregard and the sending of Bragg to Kentucky to aid the Southern sympathisers who hadtried to force Kentuck out of the Union but were met at every turn by an equal number of loyal men who loved the old flag wit all the ardor of any Northern men and were responding to a man dividing every neighbor hood into a feudal despotism un equaled in any other State General Buell of the Northern Army was a Kentuckian an had many friends on the Southern side yet he tried to be fair to both sides and was undoubt edly at heart loyal to the but hisfactions have been bitterly criticised He started with an army about equal to Braggs from thirty to forty thousand id raced with him for Louis jjleifBuell got there first an Uy 5x jJaoutlLunreasonable delay parted out to meet Bragg near Lexington He foound that raggs able second Lieutenant eneral Hardee was farther outh evidently intending to at talc Buell in the flank at a crit ical period Instead of giving Hardee that chance Buell went South of Lexington with the in vtention offcutting off Braggs retreat and crush him before he could get out of Kentucky Ma jor General Alexander McDowell McCook commanded a corps un der Buell hotheaden d fellow with more bravery than discretion and seeing the enemy in front he thought it the prop er thing to do to strike without Buellwhowas s V6fbrigades and if his plans had jfiot been frustrated he would probably have been able to throw tall his force against Bragg with crushing effect S Instead here is what happened i the cavalry to which I be thej2nd Michigan was thrown inj front and the men withrepeating rifles were di mounted and pushed well for wardclosely followed by the division of General P H Sherri dan who had justbeen promote- from the colonelcy of the 2n MichiganCavalry Landwas an untried man but he took up a commanding position on the right of McCooks corps and this cost severe losses to both avalry and infantry It was a clear day and the ar illery of the Confederates had a repntation for sharp shooting And so had our Loomis and Hesxrv1fSloy cock ItJKJwas therefore not a eal comfortable place to stand Bhind eitherof those batteries the object was soon T ed General Rouseau c JFT- viided he division aext o cjd he mo ding to he ians with blood in their eye sprang upon Rouseans division and threw them into confusion They were mostly fresh troops desl perate onslaught of men who believed the Northern men were invaders In writing of these scenes it is not pleasant to rake up old prejudices therefore let us dismiss this part of the battle by briefly saying that one division mostly of new troops were iven back by a corps under Hardee and the groundwas strewn with dead and wounded ahgrove trees where the remnants of the division made a gallant stand and held it all the afternoon against fre quent assaults from the Confed erates though at one time they thedwent to their aid and the line was maintained Word was sent back to Buell Wellhgot himself into trouble Let him get himself out And so nearly onethird of his army lay within five miles of the battle field chaf didd The afternoon wore away and the sun was getting low over the western hills when Sheridan saw a movement on his left which in dicated a flank movement from the rebels He had ordered brush placed over the two batter iesLoomis and Hescocks to mask their position and all of his men were lying down far enough back of the batteries to be under cover so far as a view from the enemys front was con cerned Sheridan dismounted could be plainly seen walking back and forth close in rear of the artillery by those of his old regiment who had learned to love the man with a devotion born of desperation Presently stray 1snot came whistling close to his ears and he too placed himself under cover as he gave in a low command Pass it along the line steadyhold your fire until you receive the command to fire And the low muffled tread came nearer up the incline Presently the command was taken up by the captains of artillery from Sheridan and simultaneous with batteriess of six or eight pieces each pulled the lanyards and a most demor alizing fire of canister raked that Ad ry sprang to their feet and pour ed a deadly fire into the temporarily demoralized veterans from the Potomac Following itup they drove the Confederates from the hillside down through the valley of Chaplain Creek and on through Perryville capturing many prisoners and giving to the v shockSof their lives for they had looked u Il won snwere jly be- ants bigwith western horizon as if to com mand a halt in the terrible havoc lighting up the surcharged heaven with a glare of smoke and flame that is never to be for gotten But let us forget the rest the losses which were way up to ward the ten thousand mark and remember only the generous work of the hospital corps among friends or foes the same We slept upon our arms and in the morning found the enemy had decamped We escorted them southeast out of Kentucky and from that time on no armed forces menaced the peace of that old home of gentlemen HEARST AND HUGHES A NonPartizan View of The New York Campaign New YorkThe political fight whichnow the Empire State is surcharge- with elements vital to the inter ests of the nation In many aspects it concerns California or Maine as deeply as it does New York State issues pale in contrast with the nation al questions involved- It may solve the gigantic trust problemIt spell the name of the next President of the country- It may finally define a neelpolitical system The basis of this remarkable and entirely unique situation is composed of the personalities of two men of national reputation Distinctly different types they appear to represent the identical theory of government William Randolph Hearst and Chas E Hughes have won fame as trust fighters Hearst as an editor who has turned his vast newspaper machinery into guns directed at the money power Hughes as a lawyer who has de voted his keen and powerful brain in tearing down the castles of two arrogant classes of trusts and exposing to the world the corruption at the base Whatever Hearst may be statesman or mountebank self seeker or altruist he is a hun dred thousand times pledged to the overthrow of special trust privilegeWhatever Hughes may be sincere or insincere corporation lawyer whom the trusts have bought at will or man above re proach who knows no master but a clean conscience his more conspicuous lifework has been to fearlessly unmask men in high offices expose corrupt practices born of special privileges and political intrigue with the money masters and point his honey fin ger in the faces of the political commercial oligarchy Wall street is trembling at the spectacle of these two men nominated by the two great Jparties for the Governorship Hearst is worth personally as much money as some New Jersey corporations are capitalize for He is no friend of the rich He has made a fortune from the poor to which class his nevi apers cater He stands now in I reflected glory of the poor Iks friend 11 strepjififould hesitate Pe ra ugh e

declared that the next Governor of New York will be the next President of the United States Such an event would have precedent Hearst has clearly indicated his future path if fortune smiles on him in this campaign for Chief Executive of the State His old hero William J Bryan is no longer a hero Hearst refused to permit the Buffalo convention to indorse Bryan for the Demo cratic Presidential nomination When Bryan made his triumphal entry into New Yorkrecently Hearst was slow in calling Then his call was formal Hearst is booming his Inde pendence League in all parts of the country He proposes to use this in the country as he uses it in this State A terrific blow has been struck at the machines in the State President Roosevelt is the real boss of New York State today He entered the fight and forced the nomination of Hughes His captian on the field is Timothy L Woodruff who was the Presi dents Lieutenant Governor when he was Chief Executive of the State Odell who has bossed the State since Tom Platt fell by the wayside from servility is de clared down and out Odell was one of the money mouths who were singed by the Hughes insurance light That was a time when his political power could neither save himself or his dear friend E H Harri man The Republican State machine is in splinters New York is boiling with ex citement and these factors are not lost to view The

securities inlyears In loving his money better than bothfwas a world is well rid of But extreme as was his case he is only a type of thousands of others whose aim is ever to get andnever to give A notable miser here and there represent the extreme degree to which life may be narrowed duwn by love ofmoney But countless millions are nar rowing their lives every day from the same cause Few of us may have the physical hardihood to actually starve ourselves to death for moneys sake but 0 what a lot of us starve the mind and the soul for it Only for his severe selfdenial which is really a quality of excel lence Quinn world have been no worse nor better than millions of others who love money as well as he did but love personal comfort moreThe miser loves the money itself he revels in contemplation of the fact that it is his The most of us who hold ourselves to be superior to him love the grat ification of the physical senses which money buys And the one love is as vain purposeless and as utterly selfish as the other The ideals blasted the oppor tunities lost the joys atrophied in the lives of millions every day by the love of money who can count them There are miserslots of them whose love of money has killed all that is best in their souls but who still stand among us as prom inent and respectable figures The miser is the poorest of men for while he lives solely for self he gets less out of life than any other man He has money but denies him self the things that money can buy In making money the end instead of the means of life he narrows his purposes and achiev ements down to nothingness- He who for the sake of saving denies himself the riches of sym pathy and helpfulness and alien ates himself in spirit from his fellows is the poorest of all pau pers But

is too late The number of good things which should have belonged to her own people and which are now controlled by oth ers is ample proof of this fact Perhaps my feeling is so strong on account of the fact that my ancestors were among the first settlers and that the family has been living in the State ever since I cannot help but feel that we should do more and I must admit that I am becoming exhausted in the struggle This letter from a Virginian of Virginians in urgency of prompt and adequate provision for the proper training of Youths to leadership in Southern industrial progress should appeal practical ly to the thousands of success ful Southern men at home and abroad It should result in such a waking up of the South that the men who have borne the bur den and heat of the day of the Souths recuperation fropi wreck and ruin should be saved from exhaustion and have their hands mightily strengthened for per sistence in the struggle which must be won if the South is to come into its own In the stress of 25 or 30 years ago thousands of young men left the South be cause they felt that better oppor tunities were offered to them in other sections Conditions have radically changed There is no part of the country where a young man properly equipped may do as well as in the South in many lines of activity contrib uting to the development of the South and the enrichment of the individual Men from other parts of the country are appreciating that fact and realizing upon it in everincreasing num capitalIthey are of course welcome and reaping advantages which ought to be within the grasp of home folks Without preaching hospi tality and without suggesting envy the States where such re sources lie should see to it that their own natives should be pre pared to utilize them to the limit The best means to that end is liberal support by legislation supplemented by individual endowments so founded as not to dwarf selfrespect and self de pendence of students of institu tions that will give the best en gineering training in the country on the one hand and on the oth er the best preparation for suc cess in the trade Supplement ing this should be a generous rec ognition on the part of the cap ital class in the South of the ca pabilities of Southern youth thus prepared and an encouragement to them to remain in the South as an incentive for the exiles whq have succeeded elsewhere to return home to greater triumph Men who are becoming ex hausted in the struggle should re m mber that in themidst of the smoke and tumult of battle few fighters have a chance to see the end but that victory usually comesat the moment when the t fig ting is hardest But it is time for the South to wake up to this vital question The Manufacturers Rec ord from which the above was taken might have appropriately added some comments on the importance of fostering and main taining agricultural colleges in the South where a Southern youth could be intelligently pre pared ond equipped for the im portant occupation of farming No branch of industry in the South offers a more invitin field than that of improved o modern methods of agriculture and no branch of industry is more sadly neglected THE TELEPHONE NUISANCE A Massachusetts court has ruled that it is not an actionable misdemeanor for a wife to call up her husband on the telephone day and nigh even though it be malicious He adds however that one owning a telephone coul probably secure an inJ unctio n preventing anyone from makin his life a burden in this manner It is by no means an uncom mon form of persecution and since the invention of the tele phone there have been many persons who seem to feel that it was manufactured for the sole purpose of killing time A prac tical joker in Los Angeles a few days ago ribbed up 175 people to call up another man on the phone and ask him a fool ques tion The victim of the jest was called to the telephone every five minutes or so until he completely- controllost of his temper an muffled the bell taking chances on missing some important busi ness communication This constant abuse of the telephone has almost rendered it a hindrance rather than a hel to the business man In addi tion to the smart Alecs who use it as a toy there is another nuis ance in those who cut in on partyline and retail the gossi of the neighborhood to thei friends keeping waiting those who have something really im portant to talk of The man or woman who does not understand the proper use of the instrument tobpaste these rules on the trans mitter 1 Dont calla man to the tele pHone for a social chat during business hours 2 Dont waste the time of other people by talking longer than is necessary 3 Dont jolly Central and keep others waiting Give Central your number only Anything more is an imposition on the other subscribers 4 Dont use the office telephone to carry on personal conversa tions 5 Dont relate gossip over the wire If you must tell it write it 6 Dont use thee telephone a

state normal school appropriation nor do I recall that he ever approached me on the subject I know he was in Frankfort a good part of the session but it was my un derstanding that he was there as the

four candidates in the field Mr Gullion for State Super intendent being the last one to announce Two of these four candidates have no opposition viz Hon Henry M Bosworth for auditor and Hon Couth Trimble for lieutenant gover norAs a matter of fairness and justice to the other sections of the state and In order to strengthen the ticket would it not be advisable to distribute the candidates over the state rather than to nominate four out of nine from one section Supt Fuquas Indorsement publicityfrom State Superintendent Fuqua af ter promising Mr Fuqua a place on his state board of examiners- In order to correct any false impres sions that this letter may have caused I publish herewith a letter written by Mr Fuqua a few days ago Frankfort Ky Sept 11 1906 I have known Mr M O Winfrey a number of years and have always found him very zealous and active in the cause of education and a success ful and skillful teacher He has been a member of the State Board of Examiners since my entrance into office and has discharged his duties faithful ly and efficiently He was very active and untiring in his efforts for the es tablishing of the two normal schools It is a pleasure to me to give these testimonials of regard for Mr Win frey Very truly JAS H FUQUA SR- Supt of Public Instruction Gullion Attacks Jim Stone Mr Gullion seems greatly worried over the fact that I have selected

argue that efficiency in a chief clerk is unnecessary for he saysitA machine can add a Column of figures I wonder if this was the idea which prompted him in selecting his chief clerk The thousands of friends of Hon James E Stone throughout the state will resent Mr Gullions weak attempt to reflect upon him One Who Knows IFrom Winfrey worried inces santly nearly two years to pave the way for state normal schools Dur ing the two years prior to the meeting of the last legislature he did more to mold and develop public sentiment in favor of these institutions than any other man in Kentucky During the session of the last legislature he spent much time in Frankfort and was al ways alert and active for the state normal school bill of which he was the author He should ever be remembered by the teachers and friends of education In Kentucky as one who has labored faithfully and sacrificed much for the Buccess of this great cause DR E E HUME Chairman Executive Committee Educational Improvement

the very front rank of school men in this state As a member of the State Board of Exam iners as President of the Kentucky Educational Association as President of the Educational Improvement Com mission of Kentucky as superinten dent of the city schools of Stanford and Middlesborough as Institute in structor and platform lecturer he has proven his right to be ranked among the brightest truest and brainiest young men of the south He is in the prime of life hardly forty yet ambi tious energetic a tireless worker with superb health and splendid cour age The schools of the state I sin cerely believe would be vastly bene fited under his administration I know no man who has done more than he to arouse and direct public opinion along educational lines His life his heart his hopes are in his work Above all he is a man of action he brings things to pass He has crowded more work into his eighteen years of school life than any other young man 1 know He is a born leader For these reasons I believe the wel fare of the school children of the state and the future advancement of Ken tucky will be best served by the nom ination and election of Professor Win frey and therefore I shall cordially support him From Prof John Morris For Ten Years Superintendent of Cov ington Schools Covington Ky Oct 23 1906 As a school man I am watching the progress of the campaign for Superin tendent of Public Instruction with more than ordinary interest and I feel that the people should be alive to the educational demands of our com monwealthThe interests of public schools demand that a thorough school man should be elected to the office of Su perintendent of Public Instruction in Kentucky He should be a teacher by profession and a man of wide experi ence in actual school work He should be a leader in his profession as well as a scholar He should know the ed ucational needs of the state and Should be ever ready to sacrifice per sonal ease for the good of the state Such are some of the qualifications the superintendent of public instruc tion should have If all the qualifications are possessed by a candidate the people should npt hesitate to cast their votes for him on election day Fortunately for the educational in terests of Kentucky there is such a candidate in the person of Prof M O Winfrey superintendent of the Mid dlesborough city schools Very respectfullyJOHN MORRIS From Prof W F Pate Supt Lebanon Graded Schools In my long association with Prof Winfrey I have always known him as- a man of fine moral character as an v t i earnest and zealous worker in any cause that he considers right as a man of strong convictions and with the courage to carry out those convic tions No man has ever worked more ardently for the upbuilding of our common schools no one in our state Is better equipped for the duties of the important office of Superintendent of Public Instruction and certain it is that no other one has done such ef fective work for the establishment of our state normal schools and In my humble opinion the best thing that can happen to the educational interests of our state Is to elect him to the position he Seeks and begin a new and more progressive era in
