nip to the high regard for each contestant for had this proposition been launch qdat a more favorable time when sickness and disagreeable weather were not prevalent a magnificent showing would have resulted for every one ofI the young ladies But taking it as it is every contestant placed in nomination by admiring friends should justlyb o3eel proud of the compliment as ured by their votes The

unrelenting c and bears everyI evidence of gennine merittIn point of rivalry it was animating in several instances but so far as we is know love and good will prevail To the young ladies we can only extend congratulations and our thanks for the work done and place the premiums a where the Judges direct To the many friends who not only worked for their favorites by extending the circulation of The

Virginia made it quite clear to me why the denizens of those fastnesses take so easily to moonsliining pr ilicit distilling and why the deathdealing feuds thrive so in such environments sliys writer in the Outing Magazine They have never come in contact with the world and ari amazingly ignorant of anything which happens outside their immediate neighborhood I have seen old men who hadnever been half a mile away from their homes whose whole Jives had been passed in the creek bottom where theyhad been born There are a few schools to be sure but the territory is so extensive and the schools are so few that a relatively small number of children ever see a book There is comparatively little communication between the dif ferent parts of the country Only the more prosperous own horses or mules In some sections tray el by horseback is impossible Al though the mountains are not high the country is probably the roughest in the United States A meadow is rarity and land is too precious for pasturage Here and there a few scrawny cows are to be seen but they belong only to the comparatively rich and they are forced to shift for themselves by grazing along the creek beds and underbrush With pastorial life out of the question the inhabitants resort agricul ture in the most primitive and limited way Patches of corn seldom exceeding five acres in extent are cultivated on the sides of hills where the slope is fre quently at an angle of fortyfive degrees The land is tiled bythe hoe for no horse could drag a plow over such ground The best shots in the world are the Kentucky mountaineers The West has nothing to compare with them When it comes to pulling a gun quickly and shooting accurately the most ex pert of frontier bad men would appear slow and clumsy by the side of many of these mountain outlaws They learn to shoot al most as soon as they graduate from the cradle Many of their sports relate to shooting The proprietor of the crossroads store has a shooting gallery in his es tablishment where in other localities you might find a slot ma chine Inone store I saw a wheel about naif the size of a spinning wheel with pieces of cardboard containing numbers on the differ ent spokes The charge was nipence 10 cents a shot and the participant picked his num ber The prizes ranged all the way from a box of cartridges to abagoicornmeal ora side yof sow bosom according tp tile size of the piece of cardboard se lected The wheel was giveri a swift whirl by the storekeeper but judging from the shooting I saw I could ndt find out wherein he derived any profit from the contrivanceProbably the most respected citizens in the easlern Kentucky mountain district is jpld Shackle ford who lives at the head of Poor Fork Greek in Parry county Shackleford is jetting

PREPARE EOR SPRAYING r It is time for the orchardist to be astir andready to begin his fight on insect enemies and fun7 gus diseases With the opening of the growing season these pests spring into activity and must be checked if the best growth and development ofthe fruit crop is to be expected Spraying how recognized as an essential in profitable fruit growing says Drovers Journal But to be suc cessful it must be done at the right time and in the right way There are many different kinds of insects and plant deseases which attackfruit trees conse quently there area great many kinds of spraying solutions each with its own peculiar use and time of application It may be confusing to the beginner to understand each of these sprays but the experiment stations in state have published what is called a spraying calendar which it will be advisable for every farmer and orchard owner to send and get This calendar tells how to make each of the spraying solutions for what particular insect they are adapted and when to use for the best results Each experiment station sends out these bulletins free of charge to farmers of the state in which they are located J I WANTED 1 I 700 LIVE

anarchis tic organ recently denied the use of the mails have decided to ter minate the existence of the sheet aria dismantle the plant This is one thing to be thankful for these spripg days This particular publication was simply a shriek ing incendiary and lawless affair whose editors openly advocated in its columns riot murder and rebellion The number whichjed to its suppressionthat js its re jectment from the postalservice was reeking with red rabid rot Jt called for th6 bid wingup of armories policey soldiers and other things and people allied with good order In Russiath paper would have beeneized by the Government mthefUnited States it was simply ordered out of tire mails The editors are fortunate in be ing under the benign laws of free America Here despite their sinister activities and dan gerous harangues their hides are not touched The very auth ri ties and the very laws they de flounce in their sheet are their protection Free speech and free thought aretod precious to be in- terferredcvjth or punished even though they incite to murder and treason Ifeverthe futility of anarchism were illustrated it is illustrated in their case The anarchists have outraged public op nidnh u t notwithstanding their offense the government which they profess to despise shields them from the molesta tion oX indignant people The suspension of the paper is a good ti dance Here is one lonely instance where it is a pity the inkslinging rioters cannot be reached But if they keep their sheet in suspension and lead as new hereafter their offense may be forgiven To give their organ a fitting and harmonious finisfi they should not dismantle it in the calm ordinary way They should blow it up with a dynamite bomb Louisville Times The boy is father of the man in more ways than one

Congressional honors Afte iiis thirty minutes address Mr Matthews took the floor and used full one and one half hours mainly in trying to place Congress man Edwards in bad light whet measured by Republican senti ment founded on the charges and trials of Caleb Powers and an ef fort made for Powers pardon His speech so far as we heard failed to measure up to that high ideal of public addresses so bad ly needed at this particular timer in every part of this State and by every man who seeks position of honor and trust Congress man Edwards whatever his faults may be met the charge in a manner befitting a gentle man and his speech largely ex planatory of his position show- erehim to be a person who believe P in a fair square deal In othe words judging from the speeches made Mr Matthews is seeking advantage of his competitor by an effort to keep alive the fires of political passion and ride the wave of sentiment thus created into Congress This may prove a happy hit a winning hand with the voters of his party but we can not see any good to come t either to his district his State or his party He may make a good Congressman if elected but we are not in sympathy with t such methods fo4

1 J Wi tL i r CONSUMPTION OF EGGSV It is estimated that the people of the United States consume dai ly 44000000 eggs The outline for a year reaches the enormous total of 16000000000 enough to load a train that would stretch from Washington to Chicago a distance of 900 miles These eggs if made into a necklace and hung on the neck of the man the moon would hang clear down to the earth and double back to the starting point If made in one gigantic omelet it would be large enough to envelope the whole earth so that the man at either pole could be eating off of it at the same time With the money spent on eggs we could build two Panama canals a year and a congressional library every seven years We paid more for eggs last year than the teachers the cornraisers corngrowen earn For doing all this

import ance of the planting of trees This recommendation should be heeded and complied with by every good citizen who is thetowner of real estate If as been said the man who causes two blades of grass to grow where heretofore there was but one is a public benefactor how much more may be said of the man who plants a tree where none has ever grown The expense is small the labor insignificant while the results will mean much for the future SHORT ROAD TO MISERY Begin by fancying that no one cares for you that you are not of any use to anybodya sort of nonenity in the household where your placewouldnot be missed but easily supplied Reflect on your want of beauty and lead yourself to believe that no one can love a plain face or think you agreeable because there are others more charming Fancy that every one who looks you makes a mental comparison which militates against you inJ favor of some one else Imagine that every word said in jest is only meant to cover a deeper and more painful meaning that ev apparellyou culed Do all this and your ten dency to morbidity of feeling will so increase that in a very short time you will become one of the most miserable of human beings The Lyon Buggy Company DISAPPOINTED IN GOY WILLSON The wielding ot the veto axe has brought two characteristics lightLvery a strong partisan and the other is that he is a man of bitter prejudices During the last week in expressing his reasons for veto ing certain bills he stated plainly that they would benefit the Dem ocratic party and that he would therefore veto them without even denying that they were lacking in merit or that they would not be beneficial to the peo ple generally His entire time and attention seems to be center ed upon political moves and heis making them successfully He permitted the defeat xf the coun ty unit bill to elect Bradley and for his work it is reported that Bradley last week sent word to him to go to hades This shows ack of respect on the part of Bradley for the man who would adopt such means even to elect him We have hoped and ire yet hoping for good from Gov Willson but he is not quite so tall nor so broad as we measured him upLarue Herald

from the Senate at the end of his present term is received with mixed feel ings hope that it is true and fear that it may not be true It is not probable that if Mr Aldrich desires reelection means can be discovered by the opposition in Rhode Island to defeat him His machine in that State is one of the most effective in modern poli ics but there is at least a ques ion whether Mr Aldrich will insist on reelection There has been a marked decrease in his power as Senate boss The Re publican majority is unwieldy and contains more than a fair sprink ling of young men with tenden cy to break over the traces Mr Aldrich has already suffered more than one reverse on minor questions of policy and has been forced to make one compromise after another on the bill bearing his name until if it should pass the House its own father would not recognize ifc Mr Aldrich is an old man with waning influence He is still the most effective instrument o f Standard Oil and the American Tobacco Company but neither of these trusts is in the best of odor and the combination is finding that the number of its enemies is not lessening with time Mr Aldrich will not be missed if he should retire in 1911 It is to be hoped that events between now and 1911 will convince him that retirement isV his wisest cQurse Louisville Times The Lyon Buggy Co has the vehicle and harness you need OBITUARY Vandoe Grider was born
