1909 Judge Thurman was born at Springfield Ky Jan 5 1854 J He studied law at the University of Virginia and was admitted to n the bar February 27 1890 In tt J 1892 he was elected County At t itorney

This happy virtue as an officer IiiS add lustre to his career and in creases his worth to a communi e f torwhom honor IS due j In Judge Thurman the Demo disIMr loyal patriotic support of every

I t ry able family to Owensboro Ken tucky where eight years of his life were given to the practice of his profession and where he made a host of strong friends Returning to Marion county the home of his birth in 1897 he continued the practice of law and by hard work and close ap plication to business earned in a few years a highly creditable and praiseworthy practice In the fall of 1901 he was elected County Attorney and during the four years that he held this office he spared neither time nor pains in doing everything he could for the conutys welfare Injustice to him it can be said safely that Marion county never had an officer who labored more earnest ly and more conscientiously its interests and the interests o its citizens He was progressive never hesitating to lead the way nor fearing to take hold when duty called He was watchful as the countys prosecutor and vigorously but impartially en forced the law He is a man of the highest integrity i and of untiring energy and is possessed of the happy faculty of meeting every import ant proposition ably with olute determination and wit the utmost sincerity of purpose Like Judge Thurman he is in the strictest sense a selfmade man and loves the great common people Having had hard ships to contend with in the fight for a livelihood he knows how to sympathize and to appreciate the lot of others who have traveled the same road No man will go further for a friend than C S Hill and it is this virtue thaihas won him the honest good hiIm whatevegr he undertakes As a lawyer he is confident and capable and if the voters crown his ambition to be Commonwealths Attorney of this district with success by electing him next November they will bestow honors richly deserved upon one of Marion countys worthiest citizens an most loyal DemocratsLeba non Enterprise Farmers Favor AutoLicense Bill One of the important measures which Congress will take up this session is the Federal auto license bill The object of this bill is to eliminate the cumber some system now in vogue of compelling motorists to procure licenses in every State they traverse A prominent Grange official in discussing the bill said Although I am not authorized to speak officially I was person ally much impressed with the favorable attitude of the gran- gers toward this measure and though the grange took no action on the question I feel that the majority of the farmers of this country will not only fail to op pose the bill when it comes be fore Congress but will actively support it s The arguments that motoring interests have achieved wonders in road improvement that the payment of the proposed fee demanded for a license swell th national fund for highway improvement and that the income from State auto taxation is a I prolific source of revenue jrm Bee Notes is good evidence that a IIThere of bees may travel 46 to Two swarms are reported to have crossed Lake Erie at those distances respectively Beekeepers differ in opinion as to the desirability of shade over the hives This difference may be explained by supposing that it makes but little difference one way or the other First class beekeepers bewail the swarming tendency and Dr C C Miller of Marengo Illinois has almost eliminated it by special selection Carried through several generations special selections will do most anything We have two hives this winter framesfout so edge

least two weeks breedI ing them In some instances cholera works slowly and effects certain animals so slightly that the breeder is thrown off his guard Some of the herdwill not eat so well although they are apparently healthy and this fact may go unnoticed We know of several instances when swine breeders have been so far thrown off their guard in this way as to allow cholera effected hogs to mingle with others after return ling from the country shows or other live stock fairs The re suIts were that cholera soon ap peared in a more virolent form causing serious losses This is a matter we

Memoriam- A beautiful fragrant flower has been plucked from the gar den of our little world and taken to the paradise of our Lord to bloom eternally On the night of October 14th 1908 at 1020 oclock in the little town of Gradyville Ky the many friends of Mary Elizabeth Wilmore were pained when the telephone message was recieved notifying them that Mary was dead While all knew she was very ill none were prepared for the news not even those of us who were at her bedside knew until her physician came A malignant attack of typhoid fever with other complications caused sudden heart failure When told by her grandmother Grissom that she could not re cover Mary naturally expressed surprise but only for a moment did she seem disturbed almo instantly she was calm and rest ful arid standing as she was o 11 the border of Eternity not aI tremor of fear did she show distinctIlyLord I am not afraid Her brother Austin came to her just at this time asked if she knew him again her voice was clear as she replied Why yes it is brother and I have been prayingc for you for five years Jim andsister too Aliof you must meet me in Heaven Before we could hardly realize it her little barque had crossed the river of death peacefully quietly and gently We scarcely heard the dipping of the oars For the master was there and had spoken Peace be still It seemed the loved ones could not be reconciled Would that admoniIIExtremely modest and retiring she spoke as if she stood in the very presence of God Surely all who heard will heed and God will answer the prayer of that night for the wandering ones of the home We do not claim perfection for Mary she felt andI often expressed her unworth iness but she was an uncommon child and different from most girls of her age We have walked with her along the secluded paths of theI inner life and had glimpses therein of which the worldnever knew or understood Religion was the theme of her life If possible she was always in her place at church and Sabbath school Missionary work being her chief delight Maryis sadly missed at home so many little things that other girls would think of no use did she do for her father who came in late and tired at night His chair slip pers books papars and Sunday school quarterly all just ready for him Her mother was first in everything in all of Marys plans she considered no sacrifice too great if mother needed her A busy life was hers indeed never faltering never shrinking however tired she might be but her work is done here She is now busy on the hill tops Heaven We shall miss her cheer ful smile and generous greetings- so kindly given to all alike the rich the poor the old and young Mary was 15 years old but to us she was still little Mary She professed religion at ten years of age and has been unusually zeal ous for the last twelve months No one can measure the influ ences shed by her brief life May the Christ who said I am the light o the world the risen and glorified Christ smoothe the sorrow and

distribute it on a similar proposition the counties In so ding no State nor no county would be given an undue advan tage nor none be excluded from an equitabla distribution The localities would be stimulated t= their energies enlivened and- public spirit developed The Congressmen of this State could make a strong introduction of this proposition if demanded by J the people Ifsuch aid is ever

of the lesson of the last State election in Kentucky the question of Wet or Dry still seems to be an active force i n Kentucky politics fraught with the same danger to party success and carrying with in more bitterness and more dis tinctively drawn lines than be tween Democracy and Republi canism In Marion county in the nomination of county officers in the Democratic primary ac cording to the reports sent out from Lebanon the line up was between those who favor the saloon and those opposed to it and the result was heralded as a wet victory In War r en county where a primary election was held by the Democrats last Saturday the same issue was forced to the front and Mr Den hardt the dry candidate for County Judge was nominated by a handsome majority In other counties the same question is likely to cut a big figure in the nomination of county officers In nearly every instance this fight is being made in counties that are dry and they seem to be made without a sufficient consideration of the final election next November Where the wets win in the primary there is a likelihood of the ticket being defeated by the temperance people voting for the Republi cans and where the drys win the nomination they are in danger of the same fate by the wets voting with the Republicans Both sides are fooling with fire unless they propose to make the temperance question instead of politics the determinating matter in the selection of county officers E Town News The Maine Potato One of the prominent delegates to the recent meeting of the Na tional Grange Patrons of Hus bandry

the South were retrograding in this regard the general average was advancing This was true even in New England lately the land of abandoned farms The improvement it was stated was due largely to the

Displayed In Ice Kings Maneuvers MAN OF IMPERIOUS WILL Intimate New England Acquaintances Recall Some of His Daring Business Deals and Call Him a Stoical Strate gist of the Highest Order Vikings bold riding and raiding the northern seas scatter icebergs around through the picture and plat in a rough frame of square blocks o IceIn these words did an intimate ac quaintance of Charles Wyman Morse ice king financier and convict recently begin a story to a Boston correspondent of the New York Hera l when asked to relate some of his rec ollections of Morses remarkable ca hafs prisonment for violation of the federal banking laws as former business associates and employees have patch ed together various impressions o himThose New England intimates who know Morse best call him a bol strategist a stoic dangerous but no entirely an unrelenting foe They say he regards the numerous activities o life in the same dispassionate manner which makes him an interesting ad versary at poker chess and bridge whistMorses character was shaped in the decade from his twentysecond to his thirtysecond year With the business training then acquired he got into th Wall street game and he played thi game very much as he found it played except that he stamped his maneuvers with his own personality which is dominated by his ancestry The remote ancestors of C Morse were Norsemen who settled i England and from them descended many generations of seafarers His towIboatIndomitable will of a sailing master The skipper treads the deck master of all he surveys his word is law Numerous generations of such strong willed masters of the seas caused in Charley Morse as they call him down east an imperious will If one looks over Morses business enterprises in which he has necessarily shared cooperation with others one finds he always insisted upon being master of everything he was in In all of these relations with his fellow men he has been Morse is despoticIfriends although many him In Maine lived a merchant now dead who forged indorsements toI some notes He came near prison but Charles W Morse in order to save him and to save the mans family from suffering paid the notes This recip lent of his benefaction afterward shared in Morses golden ice stock deals but became ungrateful and talk ed detrimentally against the ice king Morse might have Indulged in pungent repartee by relating the story of the forged notes in Maine but he held the secret to himself- It is along the Maine coast and espe cially in the city of Bath about twelve miles up the Kennebec river that Morse as a boy proved himsel extraor dinary in business His people were money getters but were not unusually successful He learned business from his father also a C W Morse but his lesson had not gone far before he was teaching his father His grandfather had been the pioneer towboat man on the Kennebec and towboats played a major part in the making of the finan cier As a boy Charles Wyman Morse dis played his first enterprise by selling beguillingcursion steamboat then plying on the river It was a business in which he was the only purveyor but he soon recognized a bolder business plan In blustery weather at the mouth of the river navigation with rowboats was disagreeable and so like a true descendant of the Norsemen the daring boy rowed through bad weather doing errands for sea captains and selling to them merchandise which was worth more because of the hardship in get ting it from shore He went through the Bath high school and finally toI collegeHis father had organized the Knick erbocker Towing company and en joyed a profitable monopoly of taking the sailing vessels up and down the river The father also did some tradJ Ing in timber lumber and Ice Morse never took very much to his fathers towboat business so far as the actual piloting of boats was concerned but when the towboat company was form ed he became a bookkeeper for the concern For this Morse got 800 a year It is said he did very little bookkeeping however because he dis covered a young man with a fondness for such work and who accepted 300 for doing it Morse thereby achieved his first real finance when he col lected 500 a year without doing the work for it All the while he was not unmindful of the industries about himIince the United States became a nation there have been built at Bath nearly 5000 vessels The elder Morse built several schooners Incidental to his towboat business This did not suggest a life calling to the younger man however The ice cutting on the Kennebec however did Appeal to the younger Morse The pioneer Ice cutter was named Gheesman and since the year that Charles W Horsa r the future ice king was born he had been taking profits from the river It is interesting that the Kennebec Ice cutting industry and the ice king were buth born in 1S5G Cheesman hadI built the first icehouse and shipped the product to New York city His prosperity had caused imitation by many others so that by the time Morse was graduated from Bowdoin college In 1877 on both sides of the Kennebec from Thwings where the salt tide stops for twenty miles up the river to Hallowell were icehouses It is said that young Morse who was becoming seriously interested in the methods of the ice industry had once seen Cheesman display his hand which was garishly sparkling with dia monds with the remark See the dia icefMorse began studying this ice business In all of its details Under the sys tem as he found it numerous farmers bought or leased the land along the ripariadn d holdings and out to the middle of the stream They housed the ice awaited the coming of brokers fro New York Under this system the ice cutters were very much at the mercy of the buyers A year after he was isfg an housed a cutting In the summer he sold this to a New York broker but he becausetYork in schoonersfIt was about this time that he In terested his father in the ice business pointing out that the towboat monop oly and the owning of schooners should be suplemented by the taking over of the ice business An ice dealer owning the towboat privilege and schoon unprofitastowboat commission and the schooner freight could be arranged to take all iceIprofnthe mercy of broker towboat man and vessel owner Many of the Morse vessels were en BalU1moreand Portsmouth Young Morse gets the credit for pointing out to his father that they should take up the Ice business because these vessels instead of going back empty could be loaded with ice for New York or Philadelphia In 1881 the younger Morse is said to have made 50000 profit on a cargo of ice his father had shipped to New York because he at once reconsigned it to Florida and In vested the profit in southern pine Morses progress for the next few fulfillmentIas his schemes furnished the capital There was a good deal of competitive gaveitwo or three days after the Morse schooners which were hustled along with towboats He had already begun to profit heav fly from his strategies which he ex ecuted with daring As rapidly as his business grew he patiently surmounted the difficulties that were presented When his control of the producing field became large enough to justify the next move Morse left his native town and took up his residence in Brooklyn His ice business had reached such large proportions that the next source of profit lay in the distribution of it In the city It was to attend to this feature in order that no profits might escape that Morse removed to New York in 18SS The story of his last twenty years In the metropolis is more generally known He had gone so far in the great game of checkmating his com petitors that his ice business took on tremendous proportions His sources KenneIbecthe Hudson By 1891 he had merged twentytwo ice companies of New York city and had taken over the control of the business in Philadelphia and Balti more He next turned his attention to the consumption of ice and reaped maledictions from the public when he checkmated the consumers Ice deliv ered in New York city cost his Ameri can Ice company about SI a ton and they had sold it at 6 a ton Having effected a corner of the supply the company marked up the price of ice 100 per cent Then Morse got into the whirl of the Wall street game and he began cutting ice in another way Ice stock was pooled and advanced to the top sold out and bought at the bottom And there followed the organization of the Morse chain of banks which started in 1895 by the control of the Gar field National bank Having become a power to be reck oned with in Wall street Morse grad ually began buying control of the va rious steamship companies plying along the Atlantic coast until he con thfIConsolidatedBold strategist that he is in the game of business these isa milder his

System Installed as Great Vaults Protection In New Home Blasts of steam superheated and kept under such pressure as to flood the entire building in a few minutes will be the main scheme in a deadly system of defense that the National City bank of New York the largest financial institution in America relies upon to make its new home in Wall street the most impregnable financial fortress in the world and into which it recently moved Tall street for years has fortified Iitself against a possible invasion by a mob or a concentrated attack from hundreds of burglars and all its strong rooms and safes have been built of the most thief proof material at hand but the National City bank is the first to adopt steam as a method of defense says the New York Herald Around the banks great safe which is of the usual burglar proof constructiontons of armored steel reenforced concrete Iron rails and meshes of sensitive alarm wiresis a system of steam pipes that should all other means fail to frustrate robbers would snuff out the lives of scores of burglars should they continue to work near the safe or would stand off hundreds of men for an indefinite length of time If it dlu not suffocate them before they could escape from the building The great safe or strong room which weighs 300 tons is twenty feet high twentyfour feet long and about fifteen feet deep It is built in two Ito ries the upper section rising from the center of the main floor and the lower section extending into the basement where it rests on wide marble legV like some gloomy sarcophagus These legs are about five feet high and allow from the basement at all times a full view under the safe Looming up from the center of a great square of bronze railed cages and small rooms the safe finished in dull gray looks like a section of a warship in battle Paint among a fleet of brass railed and brass trimmed yachts and entering one of its doors gives the impression of stepping into a turret of one of the great battleships a huge steel hinge much like a miniature crane swinging the sixteen ton doors instead of an ammunition hoist Highly polished steel crossbars on the outside of the circular doors make them look like the breeches of thirteen inch guns The armament of the vault is about a foot and a half thick first a half inch plate of steel then half an inch of wire mesh made up of sensitive wires that stretch off in a1 score of dif ferent directions to alarm stations After the wire mesh there Nis a half inch plate of steel then eight inches of railroad iron and concrete and last five inches of armor plate Running around the middle of the vault directly under the bank floor which is provided with a grating to allow of a perfect draft from underneath is the system of steam pipes which the bank officials depend upon to do final execution should all other protection fail These pipes are four inches in diameter perforated with wide valves at intervals of about twelve inches and are connected with mains that lead to the boilers Should a burglar or any number of them penetrate the first layer of steel and then the wire mesh without giving an alarm all the valves can be opened by a sin gle turn of a wheel in any of a dozen places throughout the building send comIa Should a sudden invasion from an underground passage be made simultaneously with the entry from the street of hundreds of men all the valves would be kept wide open until the stifling burningvapor filled the entire basement and the banking chamber clear to the top of its seventytwo foot dome killing all those unable to make their escape Sand Strewing Wagon Consul Frank S Hannah reports to the state department that the street cleaning department of Magdeburg has recently made successful experiments with a new sand strewing wagon con structed by Hermann Fricke of that German city The wagon spreads rap idly an even layer of sand on the streets which in the case of asphalt paving is of great benefit in that it minimizes the slipping of the horses when the streets are either extremely wet or frozen This has heretofore been done in German cities exclusively by hand The apparatus is worked by the driver and can be adjusted toIstrew a layer of sand or gravel 1968 to 5249 feet wide The machine has been taken over by the city Notice From Girls to Sapheads rebcently put this notice in the local pa per for the

the gospel of the Nazi rene is an out of doors reli gion and in an age when there is so much talk of the value of out of door life it is well enough to bear this in mind Dr Henry van Dyke who has done so much toward stating the truths of Christianity in the language entiIChrist was born in a grotto so to speak in Bethlehem and from child hood to manhood on the journey to Egypt on the journey to Jerusalem to the temple in the baptism at Jor dan most of the scenes ale out of doors while during his ministry the Saviour taught the people almost con stantly out of doors with numerous references to nature The sermon on the mount the many talks by the seaside and on ship the walks through the fields on the Sabbath day and many other scenes ending in the cruci fixion on Calvary the resurrection and the ascension were all associated with te open air so that it may be said chat despite the need in these days for churches in which to worship Christianity in its origin was by no means altogether an indoors religion From Palestine to Egypt is a natural transition at this season for it was from Judea to the country of the pharaohs that Joseph took the infant Je sus and his mother when warned of the angel One of the new books is- Egypt and Its Monuments by Robert Hichens and Jules Guerin Mr Hichens wrote the text and Mr Gue rin provided the illustrations and both artist and author made special pil grimages to the land of the pharaohs to gather impressions for their joint work The beauty magic and mystery of this ancient land are admira pagesI more and more both by the lay student and by divines who wish to trace the his tory of religion from its early mani festations in such ancient races as those which inhabited the country of andIged to go on forever So much is Egypt being read about nowadays that the names of Sesostris and Amenemhat and Rameses hardly sound stranger than those of Alexander and Napo leon and it does not seem such a longtime to the era of that dusky ruler Amenophis IV who so loved his wife to distraction that he is represented in the art of his day as Hissing her on a chariotAfrican scenes have a great fascina tion for Mr Hichehs and one of his best known romances The Garden of Allah has its principal action in the desert of Sahara IMr Hichens has the distinction of able in an unusual degree to hold the interest of the highly cultivated the critical and the somewhat jaded reader The intellectual grip of a story like The Garden of Allah or Barbary Sheep cannot be denied for it completely conquers the critical sense and the ideas of the author In sinuate themselves as it were among ones inmost thoughts Yet Mr Rich- ens stories are popular not merely with literary connoissleurs but with the general public as well Christmas would hardly be Christ mas without some kind of James Whitcomb Riley gift book and it is said that modern taste and tendency in holiday presents of this sort were given direction by Mr Rileys An Old Sweetheart Mine which was published some years ago with pictures in color by Howard Chandler Christy It has enjoyed an enormous vogue and has perhaps given Mr Rileys lines a larger circulation than

Hitherto Mrs Woodrow has laid the scenes of her stories in one of two settings either in the midst of the untamed western wilderness or amid the ultra fashiona ble society of New York Mrs Wood row has had personal experience of both Many readers of The New Missioner questioned the ability of any cultivated woman to secure firsthand knowledge of the life there por trayed As a matter of fact Mrs
