seriousconsideration by the citizens of our town and com unit especially that feature of it which relates to the establishment of high schools by the county board of educa tipn It provides that within two years after itpassage there shall be establish ed by said board of each county o eor more high schools of the firstclass and by firstcla s is meant a school which maintains a four year course of study prepared feyflthe State Board of Education If such a chool already exists in the county the county board may make ar rangements with it This arrangment Jipwever can not be made with a denominational school and hence our high schools here can not be considered The high school contemplated the law is one in which children completing the branches as now taught in the public schopls can have free tuition for more aadvanced studies The law proviees that the Board of education of the county may unite with the governing authority of anytown or county for the purppse of establishing

speaker all the ministers in town being present From the ideas he advanced the only material differ ence as we saw it from the position taken by Baptist ministers in general and pedobaptists was that he be lieves that the gift of the holy spirit comes after baptism while the other churches believe that it comes before He further more believes that baptism is essential to salvation and the Baptist and pedobaptist do not believe that it is essential to salvation The Penalty Envelope Drawing pensions willhncef6rthbe made somewhat easier for the benefici ryIn accordance with the pension

until an official statement had been prepared by the phy sicians who had been attending him in the various periods of his illnessWhile Mr Cleveland had beer seriously ill from time to time the announcement of his death came like a thunderbolt to those who had been watching his ill ness Last night there was a slight flurry among the friends of the Clevelands that something was serioulsy wrong with the ex PresidentThis occassioned by a vis it of Dr Bryant of New York Mr Clevelands physician for many years Mrs Cleveland later in the evening discussing Dr Bryants visit said that there was no occasion for alarm and that Mr Cleveland was getting along nicely This reasurance totally unprepared their friends for the announcement of his deathThe fixing of Friday afternoon as the time

on the subjectHe first of all the bold statement that any one who de sires to live for four score and ten years should get married In other words he claims that con- Jugal life is a necessary condition of longevity Here are the sta tistics which support this statement Of 200persons who have reached the age of 40 years the doctor found that 125 were mar ried and 75 unmarried Of 70 men who had reached the age of 60 years he found that 48 were married and 22 unmarried He next took 38 men each of whom was in his 70th year and he found that 27 were married and 11 unmarriedAgain doctor has

Outlook So astute a man of the world and of business as Frank A Mun cey is quoted as saying over in Paris Though I am a Repub lican I am not so optimistic as are many of myfri ndswho think that Mr Taft will have a walkover On the contrary I think it will be the hardest fight on record Whatever objections may be made to Mr Bryan he is- a good runner His campaign against Mr McKinley one of the most popular of our Presi dents showed great fighting qualityMr Muncey has a more pene trating eye and a more logical mind than those friends whom he quotes who represent it may be remarked in passing a goodly number of Republicans Undoubtedly Mr Bryan has a chance such as he never had before First of all there is the weak record of the Republican party to give him strength the trusts it has bred the great show it has made by word of mouth of combatting predatory wealth when as a matter of fact it has merely left the heads of the malefacting contingent alone in the enjoyment of their goods and has artificially produced a panic which has swamped busines and all but sent the wageearners to the poorhouses of the land The panic is still hanging over the country we are sorry to say It is the chief achievement of the Republican administratifn now in power Nothing else the re gime has accomplished surpasses the panic in scope and in results Somehow people do not like parties that deliberately go out of their way to create by extraneous neans a loss of confidence a destruction of credit and a slaughter of prosperity Therefore they are not likely to shout very enthusiastically nor vote very ardently for the Republican party Then there is the horrible spectacle witnessed in the meth ods used in forcing Mr Taft down the throats of the pepple Unscrupulous robberry ballot box stuffing fraud highhanded manipulation Federal domina tion were prevalent in alU parts 5f the country The whole procedure which culminated in Mr Tafts nomi aominotion was one of the most scandalous in the history of American politics Again there is the Republican platform which is a tissue of lisingenuousness duplicity and falsehood Mr Munsey is right How ever able profound and upright VEr Taft may be those Republicans are mistaken who think he has walkover Louisville Dimes Road to Success r It is said Out of twenty clerks in a store only one will become a partner and finally succeed in the

Vice Presi dent It does not like either PARTY OPEN TO ATTACKS The platform it is held by the prominent politicians leaves the party open all through the Western country to attacks by Bryan Those who followed the convention at dose range heard that Wall street hap cold shivers at the applause for Roosevelt and at the selection of James S Sherman for Vice President be callsELhewig one4 of the men

not want tohaemyl record broken But return to the situation in the Middle West which is only as yet imperfectly under stood in this county so far as the majority of the voters are con cerned it is represented as being strongly committed to Roosevelts policies Democrats and Republicans alike in overwhelming numbers are said to be ready to follow Roos ve1t1 They believe in the United States Senators by pop ular vote They believe in the I publicity of campaign contribu tions They believe in radical tariff revision than isI favored by the leaders in ConI gress They are still bent on getting after the railroads and making them reduce rates A cold reception has been given the platform It is regard ed as a straddle on more than the matter of injunctions THEY FOLLOWED LAFOLLETTE The followers of Senator La Follette compelled the conven tions to vote down planks provid ing for the physical valuation of railroads the election of United States Senators by the people the publicity of campaign con tributions and a revision of the tariffIIt is expected that on these issues William J Bryan will have the party at a disadvantage when he goes on the stump and compares the Chicago platfrom with the Denver platform To add to the complexity of the situation the antiinjunction plank has proved an offense rather than bait for labor and the statement issued by Samuel Gompers that the American Fed eration would refuse to accept it bears out everything said by the conservatives to the ROQsevelt managers in the Committee on ResolutionsPut plank in said the conservatives and you will not only offend the business men of the country to whom you have to look for support but you will still fail to please the labor man agers they are for Bryan at heart and will support him Better

nominee seated at the pie counter known in railroad parlance as the diner narrowly escaped death or serious injury There is amoral in the story which Mr Taftwill do well not I to overlook Fiank Hitchcock until a few months ago a subordinate official in the Postofflce Department has just closed four months on incessant work Ini whicli he played the role of piston rod for the Taft political engine Saturday after an interview with Mr Tat he announced that he is brokeii down and so greatly in need orestas to make it im possible for him to consider taking the chairmanship pfthe K FT I j 5i Republican National Campaign Committee a post of distinction which any young man with an revardsIlikely to decline if the decision is left with him Mr Hitchcock has unquestion ably been under great mental and physical strain He has accomplishedeverything he set out to do coming within two of delivering to Mr Taft the 704 delegates he promised to deliver when selected a s the driving power for the Taft machine There is no tonic like success and there is no question that with it Mr Hitchcock wouldf have no difficulty in overcoming- any physical weakness that exists in ample time to take up the work of campaign management It is evident that the reason he has given for his refusal to be considered in connection with the chairmanship is not the real reason There can be no doubt that he wants the place nor that his service entitle him to it If he is sidetracked it will be sole ly because of the fact that jeal ously of success has lead to a combination against him which Mr Taft is afraid to oppose If he yields to it his political chances will be in as serious danger as was his bodily welware Sunday afternoon What the Republican party needs is a man with Cortelyous peculiar ability for delivering the goods and who is not h andi capped by his reputation for extortion Hitchcock has the ability and the nerve and it will not take him long to learn all of the Cortelyou methods and if nec essary to improve on them The Republicans have but one chance of defeating Mr Bryan and that is by raising a campaign fund which will enable them to carry such debatable States as New York and Indiana Mr Hitchcock is better equipped by his association with Cortelyou and his experience of the past four months than any other man in the Republican party to do this work The campaign on the part of the Republicans will not be 9ne of sentiment And Mr Hitchcook is not a sentimentalist He is an intensely practical young man who knows how to get results Mr Taft will make a serious blunder if he lets brother Charley or any of the rest of them force Hitchcock to spend the summer in search of health instead of corporation dollars And the Repudlican party doesnt often make mistakesof this kind Louisville Times 4 The Remedy That Does Dr Kings New Discovery is the remedy that does the healing others promise but fail to perform says Mrs E R Pierson of Auburn Centre Pat is

Herschel Baker 323t Master Commissioner- t The Miracle Of Love When genius responds to the cry of need we get a picture of the magnificent possibilities of human nature quickened into nobility by the kindling touch ofloveThe other day a story came from Chicago of a great surgeon Dr Albert Jansen of Berlin who was attending a convention of his fraternitY Dr Jansen hada of achievements in the use of his skull and science that reads like the miraculous Since arrival in this country he has besieged by the wealthy magnificent offers of remuneration for a few hours of his time He has steadily re fused His genius has placed him where his leisure is worth more to him than gold But there came in his mail two pitiful letters badly written un grammatical mispelled They were from the parents of poor children and begged his help No money was offered These supplicants had no claim of suffering upon a source of relief the plea of weakness extended to powerAnd bi man read and heeded The cry of those letters reached his heart They did what the promise or reward in of dollars could not do They turned him aside fromtthe enjoyment Of his leisure to a work of mercy Two little deaf children were entQ hospital where wentw great surgeon With all the skill and patience that gold could not purchase he gave himself to the remedying of their complaint t- In a few hours the miracles were wrough The little sufferers at awakened from their anesthetic hear for the first time the music ofa mothers vice in sOb lngJoy yV See what love has wrought Love on the hearts of those par nts prompted the seemingly albsurb arid impossible Love wrote the prevailing scrawls that captured thee great mans sympa thy Lobrdvhuman 4rd r l Zy4 love in the surgeons soul made him yield to the ryof poverty Love has made a new world for two little lives It has brought she songs of the birds into their dreary days It has opened their minds to all the sweet sounds of voice and instrument It has unlocked an avenue of education and culture What a wonder isjithis in the minds of a materialistic age where the chink of gold is the usual worker of wonders the open sesame to all the world counts worth while It tells again the old story we are 0 sometimes apt to forgetthat love is the supreme power the trans forming influence through which the glory of the race is to be ac complished Some daywho can tell when some day love will be the only claim on genius The Hove of human brotherhood will be the tie that binds society It will be enough for the weak to cry and the strong will respond with aid It will be enough for the suffer ing to appeal and science and skill will be at their disposal Money will perish with the using but Now abideth faith hope and love and the greates of these is love KENTUCKY
