Concord grape vines when he could have bought them for 5c a piece or 3 for a hundred We knew anoth er man who paid 2 for two vines when he could have bought them at the nursery for 20c A range peddler once sold a 30 range to a man for 80 The range man put up at the best hotel and his expenses for team was large yet the man who was too busy to read took the bait when he could have saved 50 by trading with his home dealer who any ten yearold child ought to know could sell cheaper than a man whose expenses in hauling a rahge day after day from house to house could sell it But the fellow who

element is in possession of the key at Frank- forta Who hit that Full Dinner Pail and knocked its contents into soup and uncertainty It is strange that President Roosevelt has not heard of thet nightriders in this State The ability of the Legislature measured by what it is accom plishing is not to be envied Somebody said that Gov Wil son was going to put the night- riders out of business but when The Elastic Currency will r doubtless be founded on expansion of public indebtedness if Congress is true to its bearings If the country could Rip Van Winkle it sleep for forty years it would avoid the panic and many unpleasant features other wise unavoidable The legislation in favor of tem perance expected at Frankfort will remain a future contingency Its not going to be done this time though Gov Wilsons party fit liquor in its platform X The other panic was said to be Demonratic but the present soup producing condition just come its not to be charged to the Democrats certainly not cause they were tending to their own business it cant be located it just come Secretary Taftthe man who seeks the Presidency through his partyin making an address a few days ago to a gathering of his Eastern Admirers said Its nobodies business where the American Navy is going If the people who support such a powerful Navy cannot be trusted with the information of the voy age in time of peace then

that is the way men of higher character and greater ability would be induced to enter that body This dont necessarily follow Many of the best men in every community will no longer ffer for office because they are not willing to engage in questionable political methods sometimes necessary to win They are not willing to sacrifice individual independence at the dictation of some political boss A high salary would be just as attractive to an incompe tent man as a competent one and a smooth politician with half the ability would be more likely to capture an office than his neighbor who is net skilled in the tricks of the politician Satisfactory public service is not always determined by the size of the salaryGeorgetown Times Some children are more prone to show temper than others and sometimes on account of quali ties which are valuable in them selves For instance a child of active temperament sensitive feeling and eager purpose is more likely to meet with constant jars and ribs than a dull passive child and if he is of an open nature his inward irrita tion is immediately shown in bursts of passion If you repress these ebullitions by scolding and punishment you only increase the evil by changing passion in to sulkiness A cheerful good tempered tone of your own a sympathy with his trouble whenever the trouble has arisen from no ill conduct are the best antidotes but it would be better still to preyent beforehand as much as possible all sources of annoyance Never fear spoiling children by making them happy U HARG1S FROM BOYHOOD TO GRAVE Struggling through boyhood

inability to win It now comes out with a double leaded editorial in which it claims Bryan will be the next President In support of which it says The Foraker schism makes Ohio a debatable State The col ored vote of the North which lost to the Republicans will mean the loss of the great States of the Middle West with New York thrown in can scarcely be united on the Secretary of War There is every reason to believe he will loose the larger part of the or ganized labor vote But there arises before him a greater factor still to be reckoned with aW that is the silent business end of itthe money end of jteven predatory wealthwhich will see in Taft the continuation of Roosei velt with a Republican Senate reduced to obedience but in Bryan no danger whatever a Re publican Senate justified in its recalcitrancy to standa stonewall between Bryan and the suc cess of any of the Bryanized Roosevelt policies At most and worst they will rightly conceive that they only take chances with Bryan With

members of the creasediThemen of higher character and greater ability would be induced to enter that body This dont necessarily follow Many of the best men in every community will no longer ffer for office be cause they are not willing to en gage in questionable political methods sometimes necessary to win They are not willing to sacrifice individual independence at the dictation of some political boss A high salary would be just as attractive to an incompe tent man as a competent one and a smooth politician with half the ability would be more likely to capture an office than his neighbor who is net skilled in the tricks of the politician Satisfactory public service is not always determined by the size of the salary Georgetown Times Some children are more prone to show temper than others and sometimes on account of qualities which are valuable in them selves For instance a child of active temperament sensitive feeling and eager purpose is more likely to meet with constant jars and ribs than a dullI child and if he is of an open nature his inward irrita tion is immediately shown in bursts of passion If you repress these ebullitions by scolding and punishment you only increase the evil by changing passion in to sulkiness A cheerful good tempered tone of your own a sympathy with his trouble whenever the trouble has arisen from no ill conduct are the best antidotes

February 6 1908 A CHANGE OF HEART f The Courier Journal has cer tainly seen a vision or had a change of heart It has been constantly opposing the third nomination of W J Bryan on r the ground of his inability to win It now comes out with a double leaded editorial in which it claims Bryan will be the next President In support of which it saysThe Foraker schism makes Ohio a debatable State The col oredvote of the Northwhich lost to the Republicans will mean the loss of the great States of the Middle West with New York thrown in can scarcely be united on the Secretary of War There is every reason to believe he will loose the larger part of the or ganized labor vote But there arises before him a greater factor still to be reckonedwith and that is the silent business end of itthe money end of iteven predatory wealthwhich will see in Taft the continuation of Roosevelt with a Republican SenateI reduced to obedience but in Bryan no danger whatever a Re publican Senate justified in its recalcitrancy to stand a stonewall between Bryan I and the sue cess of any of the Bryanized Roosevelt policies At most and worst they will rightly conceive that they only take chances with Bryan With Taft triumphant and backed by Roosevelt they will have no chance at all The Courier Journal there fore increases that bet of half a dollar to a dollar and a half that Bryan will be the next President

from other people and that when they enter the portal of matrimony love peace and prosperity will ever be their attendants Such ones had better by far consider themselves the same a s others but form iron resolutions that will keep them from dangerous coasts upon which so many have been wrecked and ruined Un happy marriages dependupon many causes Previous to mar riage many try to appear more intellectual more amiable o r more accommodating than they really are Depnd upon it that love brought into existence by a moonlight stroll strengthened by deceit and fashionable displays and finally consumated through the influence of intriguing friendsI will fade in after life fast as the flowers which compose the bridal wreath In an interview a representa tive of the iufamous paper trust advises newspapers to increase to their subscription price and advertising rates or print a small paper Even those people who would stand this out rage will have to foot the bills for not a cent of increase of price would stop or does stop in the hands of the publishers of the papers What an outrage on this boasted land of the free and home of the brave that these out laws and conspiators against the trade cant be brought before the bar of justice and made to wear stripesrIf a few of them were made to take their meals behind bars the combine would collapse like a fog in August and the
