he informed his wife that he had to go down to the store located a short djstance below his residence Accordingly he went to his barn to get his horse It was noticed that he did not come out and after quite awhile the barn was visited by friends who found Mr Baker hanging from a cross beam dead Five or six years ago the deceased attempted to end his existence in the same way but he was found and cut down before life was extinct In speak ing of the act to friends afterward he said he had no knowledge of it whatever that the occnrrence was a blank to him Soon after the first attempt he was adjudged a lunatic and sent to the Lake land Asylum After remaining in the institution for some time he was pro nounced much better and was permit ted to return home but he made fre quent trips to the asylum remaining weeks at a time consulting the physi cians During the years of his illness he was a genial sociable gentleman and his death is generally regretted He was about 61 years old and was a

c have been surfeited with the temperance issue Since the election any number of party eaders have been asked as to their opinion relative to the act ion of the coming Legislature on whichaYr may be introduced Everyone of them without exception has taken the position that the county unit law now onthe books should answer all demands of the tem perance people and that there will be no development or am plification of the present law In addition to this any number of Democrats feel that the party was mistreated by some of the temperance people and by some of the officers of the AntiSaloon League The Democrats make the claim that the only legislation that the AntiSaloon League was able to secure was given them by the Democratic Legistature and theycharge that during the last days of the recent State campaign several of the officers of the AntiSaloon League and other advocates of temperance came out boldly for he Republi can ticket instead of standing r by the Democrats who had helped them Therefore it is not expected that there will be any more temperance legislation en acted at Frankfort this winters BRAIN LEAKS tThe sweetest rest is the one well earned Th e sound of a kind word

Mrs W N Smith She was born Nov 2 1847 and at the age of eighteen united with the Christian church in which she lived a consistent member until her death During the eleven years of her illness often when she would sink under her sore affliction and death seemed to be at hand she would say I an not afraid to die I an ready to go She Was ever ready to give good advice to her children and to speak a kind word to all about her- On the 28th day of December 1865 she and father were united in marriage and to this union were given eight childrensix girls and two boys all living ex cept Mary who

Christmass not done with at midnight on the twentyfifth iof December 1907 writes Edward Everett Hale in his editorial pager in the Christmas Womans Home Companion In the older language of the older Christianity for people who spoke English and Christmass lasted twelve days Indeed I think the legends about the birth of the baby said that after the Wise Men had seen in the East His star they traveled twelve days or twelve nights until on the twelfth night they came to the saintly stable and unloaded their camels I like as one year ends and another year begins to notify those around me that studid Labor the lifting and toiling of daily life is suspended for a while and that for the next year energetic work thetriumph of the soul over mind and matter is to begin I like to have a special remembrance olthe Chrismass every day The childrens celebration on Christ mas morning theservice at church as the day goes by some Christmas party of the day old folks in the evening the oratorio of the Messiah at least on both the Sunday the Christmas tree for the Sunday School and one for the Settlement House and one for the Union and one for the Association and one for the In

unjustly abused by many be cause of his seemingly discordant attitude with men and meas ures but being a Democrat and one of the ablest men of the nation with his countrys good at heart he has never wavered on the great principles upon which Democracy rests Party policy has not been to his liking in recent campaigns neither has he been In accord with some meas ures advocated but he has all the

have been told by somebody that whole precincts in certain mountain counties were recorded tfas casting their votes for Gov Beckham in the primary when in fact there was no election at all in those precincts neither ballot books nor ballot boxes having reached there that in vestigation will reveal more bra zen frauds than the alphabetical voting and other frauds on which the Democratic Court of Appeals based its ouster decision in the Louisville contest cases and which ouster decision met Gov Beckhams approval that in some counties Gov Beckham re ceived majorities larger than the total Democratic vote of the entire I countY Mr Watterson believing in the probability of such a slander is now engaged in the pious un dertaking of persuading some member of the legislature to pro pose a

hundred years or more ago He first goes to Kansas the place aBout which you hear so much blowing but on reaching Kansas he sees nothing to compare with what he left in Ken tucky and tempted further he thinks he will go to Oklahoma where people get richin a few days but alas as a matter of fact there is nothing doing in Okla and he is further tempted to go to New Mexico By this time all his money is blowed in and he decides to go to New Mexico in a road wagon and he is apt to travel over the same grain of sand sev eral times as Oklahoma is in a dynamic state especially during the Spring months After traveling several weeks yes months he reaches New Mexico and by this time he is out of reach of temptation has blowed in his last cent in fact he is ready to make his home in the WestSo he takes up a claim digs a hole in the ground in which to live then goes to digging ditches to get his Spring crops moist ened and after digging half his wits away he puts iir a small crop of corn or pie mellons in a I field so that there is no danger of the old cow jumping in and devouring the crop for the field is so small that shee would jump over After working very hard the hail snow or something of the kind lays his crop by Then alas there is nothing for him to do but send for money to get back to Kentucky saying that he will never want a fortune in the West praying to God to spare his life
