Condition of Herschel Grider of Rowena Kentucky At Rowena Russell county Ken tucky is one of the most peculiar cases known to the Medical profession and for twelve years has baffled the skilled physicians of America A few days since Mr Porter Mc Farland of Belle Plains Kansas call ed at the News office with a picture of Mr Herschel Grider son of a promi nent farmer who lives at the mouth of Indian creek near Rowena which is said to be a perfect likeness of the orignal who has been asleep or in an unconscious condition for twelve or thirteen years In conversation with Mr John McFar land a substantial citizen of Rowena and a man whose word is his bond he makes the following statement concern ing the case I have known Her schel Grider since his childhood and know that he has been in an uncon scious condition or a stupor for twelve or fourteen years and his father tells me that during this time conciousness has only returned twice and then for l only a few minutes The family carry the unconscious man food at the regu lar hoursand place it on a table at his side If the attendant remains in the room it will not be disturbed but upon leaving the room and returning in a few minutes the meal will have been consumed The man may be de posited in a chair or on the bed and will not move a muscle or change his position a hairs breadth The cause is unknown but about the time the misfortune occured Herschel attempted to set off a blast one made from a quart bottle of powder the fuse becoming entangled around his feet and when the explosion occurred was considerably shocked Mr Grider is a brother of Dr Frank Grider of McKinney Ky and a nephew of Drs Alex and Clay Jack mam of Cumberland river ajl of whom are skilled practitioners but so far they have not been able to solve the perplexing case These gentlemen have placed the matter before the most skilled medical experts in America and numerous physicians have made examinations but no direct cause has ever been assigned nor any relief given to the unconscious man LARGER AMOUNT OF TAXES PAID At This Periqd of the Year Than sEver Before P Sheriff W B Patteson informs us that for this period of the year the tax

7 1906 HALLOWEEN IN OLDEN TIME THalloweenSaints is one of the oldest feasts of the Catholic Church and has been the occasion of sport and pranks bordering on the clair voyant for centuries past In old English times it was a night of mystery full of charms and revelry and queer pastimes Delving into the future in or der to catch a glimpse of ones prospective other half was one of the enjoyments Many of the tricks practiced on this eventful evening were so odd and withal so weird that the claim that they have been handed down from Druidical times seems just The folk lore and legions of the Celt are of a more kindly spiritual ized form than are the myths and fables of heathen countries The resemblance between those of the two countries Ireland and Scotland is so striking that a frolicsome lad could easily leav his native heather to spend th evening of All Hallowmas on the South side of the Giants Causeway listening to tales of CarrignaPooka and feel alto gether at home Indeed the spells and witchery indulged on n this great night when were dancing on the highways in Ireland the brownies were hold ing carnival in the land that claims the Doon Sowing the hemp seed at mid night in a lonely field was cus tomary with both nations Burns tells us that Jamie Fleck took a handful of hemp seed and going out alone tho saer afeard to sow the seed all the time re peating as he advanced Hemp seed I sow thee An ner that is to be my lass Come after me and draw thee As fast this night Drawing his narrow furrow along the ground poor Jamie struck his neighbors pig its squealing causing him terrible fright An young an auld cam run ding out to hear the sad narrationTo the left shirt sleeve into a rivulet where three lairds lands meet and going home place it before the fire to dry would bring the future wife who would turn the sleeves other side to the fire This was a trick al so peculiar to both Irish and ScotchPutting nuts into a blazing fire naming each after ones sweetheart was supposed to be a fine way of ascertaining the temper and disposition of the dear on nearest the heart If they bleezed brightly togither then so would the lives of the two whose names were bestowed on the good housewifes nuts But if the nuts jumped and sputtered and flew high that night with saucy pride so would the sad sight make the heart sair to see as they sat around the wellswept hearth In Ireland as in Scotland maidens combed their tresses in front of a mirror while eating an apple all the time and at the lonely midnight hour in the midst of the trick their conjugal companion was expect to look aver their shoulder rn the mirror Indeed the dell alone was out that night the jolly picture painter of Scotlands customs assures us As he tells of the ftricks in vogue among his people l he mentions the class of aerial beings thet supposedly inhabited more than any other land In Hark the Mavis he refers to them as inhabiting Yonder Cloudens silent towers Where at moonshine midnight hours Oer the dewey bending flowers Fairies dance sae cheery On Halloween in Ireland no one would wouldventure out unless compelled by great nee cessity because the fairies were supposed to be abroad The lofty towers that exist in Ireland were thought to be the abiding places of some of these good people and the thickets and lonely spots of the country places also had their fairies The little redcapped red coated fairy was a great favorite among the country peoped To catch one of these little chaps and hold him until he would tell where some great wealth was buried was on of the pleasant tales of the of days The belief in fairies was iet thequeer doings that obtained among them On Halloween The young people would go early in the afternoon andre main over night rarely braving the terrors ofa journey home ssevening Sounds were hear and strange sights seen blazing fires on hilltops being among the odd things visible in Ireland on All Halloween especially at midnight The lonely rocks on the fishing coasts of this green isle echoed the wail of the banshee s cry and the mossgrow abbeys with their empty stalls and desolated altars were more gloomy and aweinspiring on Halloween than on any other day As a more commercial spirit advances among nations these strange beliefs are dyin out and Irelands fairies an Scotlands brownies hahe become a myth and nothing more COLD WINTER

the fowls will swallow some of the sawdust with their food but such is not necessarily the case During the winter or at any season of the year sawdust may be spread over the floor of the poultry house It quickly absorbs all the moisture of the ma nure is not chilling to the feet affords an opportunity for scratching and dusting in winter and mixes well with the manure It is also excellent to spread un der perches to receive the drop- Pings during the night and is quickly applied- A cheap disinfectant may be prepared by disolving a pound of soap in two gallons of boiling water adding a pint of crude carbolic acid and stirring or ag itating the whole until the acid and soap solution are well mixed or emulsified Pour it into a bucket or other suitable vessel and shovel the sawdust into the

may be suplemented by the number of telephones in use5698000 by the number of miles of wire 6043000 in the Bell lines and by the number of conversations 2479500 000 electrically conveyed in 1905 The network of wires connects townsIvillages and hamlets Such tre mendous growth as these statis tics show would not only imply a steadily increased appreciation of the telephone but would also suggest improved instruments more skillful operators and bet ter service There would be no flattery in s u c h suggestion Electrical science has undergone radical reformation since 1878 Telephoney has raised the utili zation of electricity to the height of a profession Of course such advances have not been won without cost Fortunes were spent in experiment and investigation before a dollar came back Communication by the first telephone was limited to a few thousand feet Now conversation can be carried on by persons 1600 miles apart Tomorrow long distant lines will span the continent and the day after oceanic telephoney will be a commonplace of mer cantile routine But science and money had to collaberate forI years before they could work the miracle of enabling Boston and Omaha to talk together 0 BIG PLURALITY For Hearst in New York City Predicted by Chairman Conners William James Conners Chair man of the Democratic State Committee announced today that W R Hearst would receive- a plurality in New York City of not fewer than 148000 votes He said that the plurality for Mr Hearst would in all probability- be much larger but at the this time he was willing to go on re cord as predicting that it would not de less than 148000 Chairman Conners is now re ceiving reports from all the coun ties up state and by Frida night of this week he expects to rj jr fI be able to give out an estimate of the vote in the entire State Tammany Leader Murphy said today that an estimate of 74000 plurality for Hearst in this city was conservative and would be enough to win He also said that there would be but one canvass Tammanyeand that the result of that would not be known until the Saturday before election When informed that a news paper poll had indicated a plural ity of 74000 for Hearst in the city Mr Murphy said Well thats enough to win Coler received 123000 ma jority in the city and was defeat led some one suggested There werent any Demoerats up state to vote for Coler Then

Sold by Dr J N Co lumbia Ky HOLLER COMESFROM JAPS Barring of Children From The Frisco Schools For the first time since she whipped and humbled Russia by driving her out of Manchuria Japan poked her world power prestige under Uncle Sams nose today Courteously but firmly her Ambassador at Wash ington Viscount Aoki informed Secretary of State Root that his Government objected to the al leged discrimination against Japanese schoolchildren in San Francisco and expected the Ad ministration to see that they were accorded all privileges and rights guaranteed by treaty While Aoki was urbane as becomes a diplomat of the first rank there was nothing of humility in his manner and notwithstanding- the fact that he said he did not go to the State Department to tile a formal protest his demeanor was suggestive of the spirit of the new Japan about which much has been heard since the treaty of Portsmouth was signed In other words the Mikados Government feels that it is big and powerful enough now to in sist instead of only to sug gest Secretary Root proving that he is a master of the diplo matic game countered with a re quest that Japan prosecute the Japanesepoachers who have been raiding the Alaskan rookeries lately The Ambassador prom ised to lay the matter before his Government while Mr Root assured him that the Federal Gov ernment would exert its influence toward having the school

fruitgrowing business teaches me that the most appropriate time to plant an apple orchard is in the Fall from about the last of October to the middle of November writes W H Underwood in Orange Judd Farmer The ground should be loose and moist enough to work well but not wet and sticky At that time the grow ing season is over and the trees will hardly be affected at all by the change from nursery to or chard The roots that have been cut in digging and preparing for- resetting will callous over The ground will settle firmly about the roots and in the Spring the trees are ready to awaken into new life without a check to their growth I have found that good thrifty oneyear old trees are the best because they get damaged less if shipped from a distant nursery They are more apt to live are more quickly and easily set and contain more fibrous roots than older trees It is not necessary to cut the top back It can be permitted to grow straight up forming a beautiful top without the numerous forks so objectionable to trees that have been headed back as must be done with threeyearold trees to make the top correspond with cutaoffIn setting the trees they should be put at least 24 feet apart each way and about two 0 three inches deeper than they were grown in the nursery row- It is very important that all th roots are in natural position with mellow earth worked well among them A mound of earth should be thrown up around the protecItionbe placed around the body to keep rabbits from gnawing themAnother requisite is to watch aniopen space by the wind moving the trees keep that filled up and well packed This should always be look ed into before Winter begins spaceIfrom onehalf to two inches The rain and snow settle in this space and freezing there always hurt the trees more or less I am fo the opinion that more young trees die rom this than from any other cause In the Spring a leguminous t I Eertilizers andSWe are Agents for Globe Fertilizers and Chattannooga Chilled Plows Highest Price paid for Country Produce ifr JUIr ir1irt ifitJoIt1jlUti6M crop of some kind should be sown between the trees I prefer cow I find it to sow CUlti1vateas potatoes corn etc are ex cellent however for the first season The trees must be kept well cultivated until they are at least seven years old If the first season after the trees are planted is damp they should be cultivated pretty deeply but if it should be dry three inches will be deep enough Make it a rule to stir the soil at least every two weeksAfter the trees have been set one season watch every tree and do not allow them to grow forks Cut off all forks when ever you see them begining to form If any of the branches are inclined to grow too fast they must be cut back When ever you notice one side of the tree inclined to grow too fast and likely to get out of balance j put it back always aim to keep aj spiral stem and have the branches start out hOrrizontally After the trees come into bear ing cropping should cease but cultivation should be continued as long as the trees continue to bear The great mistake that some make is in keeping their orchards in a bluegrass sod You might as well try to raise corn successfully in such sodas apples an The best treatment for indigestion and troubles of the stomach is to rest the stomach It can be rested by starvation or by the use of a good di eatren thus taking the work off
