13 Styf foif tit t 1 ITo The Voters of The 29th- Judicial District proIposepeopleY be1J1ladepropose to suggest from time to time for the consideration of the public It has been my understanding that the Courts were createdand are held for the benefit of the people and that paramountispect the Federal Courts Why should riot the people have the same apprecia tionfor the State Courts What causes this difference Can it be remedied Do you think that it would be much better for us if our State Courts were held in the same est ein as the Federal Courts it strikes me that is something to think about The Circuit Courts have nothing to do with the tariff guaranty of bank deposits nor with the administration of the Phillipine Islandsin fact the Circuit Courts are nonpolitical- In this race it is not a question with me as what would be the most popular thing to do but how can I best serve my Country is the uppermost thought in my mind I hope to help purify po litics by lust ting that this race for Circuit Judge be made in accordance with the laws From week to week I shall have an article touching on this office until the race is ended 1 do not propose to be sidetracked nor to re areImyIthat my private and publi life is a proper subject of investigation and comment I will suggest that I will discuss the Jurisdiction of the Circuit Courts and the inferior Courts and point out the matters that belong to the JurisdIction- of the inferior Courts that is now take jurisdiction of by the Circuit Courts The unnecessary waste of time and trouble to officers and witnesses touching these inferior Court matters the unnecessary expense to the state th effect upon the Circuit Court by the as sumption of the petty police matters thstion laws and purity of the ballot I consider these

Serve as Prom enade Decks For VoyagersTo Carry 2500 PassengersAll Metal and Furniture to Be Inflated With Hy drogen How would you like to travel across the Atlantic in an airship the passen ger carrying capacity of which is as great as that of the biggest steamship afloat This is not a I mere hypothetical question Within a year airships of that kind will be actually plying between New lrk and London accord ing to the plans now being worked j upon by Lewis Nixon who designed the warships Oregon Indiana and Massachusetts The first of the series of airships will be a comparatively small affair 700 feet in length and eighty feet in its greatest breadth But the larger vessels will have a length of 2800 and will be capable of carrying feetI passengers including the crew as as fuel provisions etc necessary orIthe trip And incidentally the across the ocean will consume a fraeItion more than two days Thurlow Weed Barnes the president of a navigation company which is relfinancing the new venture in aeronau the first of the great airships to be tweleiHe said that there were fifteen di rectors of the new company each of whom is a power in the financia world And itis very obvious that nothing less than the biggestfsort of financiers could undertake so stupen dous an enterprise as the smallest of the airships the one which is to be 700 feet in lengthis to cost not less than Involve The 1000000Inever been used in combination in another airship ever constructed These principles are compactness inasmuch as even the passenger carrying part of the ship will be within its body iji stead of merely attached to it in basket form Secondly buoyancy will be se cured by inflating with hydrogenorI other lighter than air part of the body of the ship but eve the hollowed out furniture and tin propellers which thus also become lighter than air and will float if tossed overboard from above the clouds The third principle is that of aereoplanes one of which will protrude on each side of the body of the ship This will add to the buoyancy given by the gas the skimming power which sustains the heavier than air ships And final ly the fourth unique principle is that of the relicopters or propellers on the sides of the ship which when run horizontally raise the ship to any required height and can then be turned on a swivel to a vertical position to propel the ship forward v In connection with the aer plane it s an interesting fact that they will serve on the large type of machine as promenade decks for the passengers onlIv e purpose drawing the ship forIward by creating a vacuum of air which the ship is sucked but by the terrific speed of its revolutions it also acts as a setoff to currents of air and will moreover keep rain and snow from touching the ship The furnishing of the passenger quarter will be fully as luxurious as PulImaecar or ocean greyhound The furniture will be comfortably large and constructed of pulp or aluminium It1j will be hollnv and filled with gas as will everything else capable of holding j the lighter than air fluid IISUYoung women recently returned from Europe are wearing suede mutTs which are said to be one of the latest

Seed Asparagus seed may be sown- any time during the spring months or when ever the soil is in condition for its sowing The seed should be soaked in warm water twentyfour 1 ours before sowing in order to soften the outer skin of the seed andstart germination Before sowing the seed the soil should be worked into a fine condition in order to make it easy for the tender plantlets to work surfaceIsoil Sufficient space should be allowed The best manner of I sowing is in rows two feet apart made with the handle end of a rake or hoe The seed shouldnot be sown any deeper than 14 to 2 inches 4

Breeding Test May Evolve i ZebraBurro Charges MORE EXPERIMENTS PLANNED Hardy Pack Animal Type Beinp Sought fit Bethesd Station Near Washington Government Scientists Much Interested In Little Hybrid Beasts If an experiment in animal breeding that has been started over at thlexperiment station at Bethesda Washington works out a cavalry horse that is half zebra may be evolved and the day may come when Uncle Sams hardy troopers will dash after the ene my mounted on beasts that resemblo animated barber poles So far the experiments have pro gressed to the point that two young colts have been born at the Bethesda station They are not colts either but are called colts because Noah Webster never dreamed the world would one diiy get far enough along so there would be an animal that wa s half ze bra and half burro or donkey But this is just what has happened And this is only the beginning The sire of the two young hybrids alluded to is that famous zebra that King Menelik of Abyssinia following the Skinner expedition that opened np Abyssinia to American trade sent to President Roosevelt The dams aze two burros or Texas donkeys One of the colts is about three weeks old The other is still younger Both are of hues indescribable as might be im agined considering the color scheme of the zebra and the burr6s their parents The government scientists are de lighted No incubator baby was over watched over by a lot of physician with more care than the hybrid children of zebro and burro All this is in the interest of the advancement of science It is the hope of the experts that there will be evolved a beast of burden that will have advantages over both the horse and the mule and will be immune to some of the diseases that af fect both of these animals What the experts want also is a hybrid that will be half horse half zebra Experiments to that end will be begun The zebra that was sent over by Mene Uk however is too vicious to be adaptable for this purpose But it so happens that another and younger male zebra has been imported for the experiment station and this animal will be used for the hybridization of the horse and the zebra From this experiment it is thought there can be evolved an animal not merely useful for draft purposes but an animal that perhaps would be useful for cavalry purposes in the tropics Time was when the zebra sent over by Menelik was a reasonably kind gentle and considerate beast He was first sent to the president but there was no room for him in the White House so the president sent him to the zoological gardens He was on his good behavior at the zoo but since he has gone over to Maryland he has become ugly and vicious in the extreme He kicks bites paws and stirs up trouble gen erally No one ventures to go near him without the most extremeprecau tions for fear of being killed This gift of Meneliks weighs about 900 pounds He is of the largest spe cies of zebra and the most numerously striped He is shorter and more compact than a horse He is known as the Grevy zebra the species being named after a former president of France This species is found in Abyssinia and other parts of northeast Afri ca It may be President Roosevelt

intelligent electorate upon any public question fairly discussed but they want to so operate the mechanism of government that any such expression can hardly be had or be had with extreme difficulty while they in effect through the form of popular govern ment EXECUTE THEIR OWN SWEET WILL Now in civic Tight conduct we must find at the base the recognition ofthe fact that if we depend upon the Intelligence of the people we must GIVE IT regisIters hence I do not think much of the claims and the promises of civic righteousness of the man who is ready to obey without hesitation the orders fa

experiments When Huston became engaged he determined to test the good nature of the girl he was to marry He would do things to ruffle her temper If she showed self control he would complete lefolIlear the greater irritating trials of married life and he would break the engagementNow a bit of an experimenter myself that is when I can experiment on others The failures of my acquaint ances do not distress me nearly so much as my own Ben and I were bosom friends Lucy Benedict his fiancee was my own cousin Ben con fided to me that he was about to ap ply his test to Lucy It occurred to me that here was a fine chance for an exhibition of two people applying the same test to each other I went to Lucy and told her that the only fear I wasIsure was taken She said she would In nine cases out of ten this story would be a description of a thunderstorm It would have been so in this case had not Lucy been a girl of remarkable self control It was natural for her to bend gracefully before the squalls of life and she had the forti tude to stand up under the cyclone The first test Ben applied was this He invited her to drive with him at 5 in the afternoon and came at G giving no excuse for keeping her waiting Lucy made no comment on his rudeness She prattled about the exquisite afternoon the beauty of his horses getting in some very nice things for himself Ben was much pleased with the way she bore his first test but said to himself that one swallow doesnt make a summer He would try her another day The next evening when he called Lucy told him that she had some let ters to write and he must excuse her from spending the evening with hun Ben was disappointed He thought the letter writing might be put off Bu Lucy did not offer to do so Indeed she made things worse She told him that her bosom friend a girl of her own age was to arrive at 320 the next morning and would he mind meeting her at the station What could he do Just engaged and all his proffers of a lifelong devotion still warm he consented The hour was not a conven lent one either to get sleep before or after the duty to be performed He sat up till 3alone after 11 escorted the visitor two miles across the city and when he got home it was too late to go to bed He was prevented from making up his sleep the next night by a sum mons from his fiancee Her mother was ill Lucy must devote herself to her and there was no one to entertain her friend The girl was very religious and wished to go to prayer meeting Would lithe dear good boy take her and on returning entertair her till after midnight Lucys father was out of town and would not return till 2 am She did not dare be left with her mother without a man in tin house Ben submitted ungracefully took the friend to the prayer meeting and was insufferably bored with her till 11 oclock when she went to bed He remained alone in the drawing room till 245 in the morning when the father arrived his train haviujr been late Lucy came down to kiss Ben good night He managed to get out of the house without a burst of temper but on the street barely es caped being taken in by a policeman for talking to himself incoherently hi words interspersed with expletives- I never knew whether Lucy askocl her friend to visit her especially to use her in her tests or not but she found her a friend indeed Fora Wed the mother remained illso Lucy saif and Ben wns made to wait on a wu man who bored him escorting her t places he detested and at hours mos inconvenient for him Then she toci a midnight train and he saw her tl the station He had promised Luc that he would be in line at the box of fice of a theater to get tickets for at immensely popular play at an earl hour in the morning and between tit two duties he got but four hours l sleepThe next evening Ben his injuriiv rankling in his bosom called on hi fiancee threw the tickets on a tabl and well it was a muffled explosion something like firecrackers shut up in a barrel Lucy looked at him surprised then remarked that if h couldnt stand a few little things like that how would he bear the more im portant jars of life She then and there broke the engagement Ben came to me and told me what mn escape he had made I thdiV say anything just then but ih a few days when I found he was about ready to commit suicide I confessed that I had suggested to Lucy that she had better test him and advised him to ask her to give him another trial I got out of the room in time toes cape storie beet mug he threw at me I thought Id better take a vacation for awhile and go south When ncame back Ben

The Power of Song 1 c OQOOGGCQCOOGCGGGGGGGGGGGOCopyright ciation Queen Margaret Caroline Prances Josephine Stephanie Lucille Eulalie de r Raganza succeeded to the throne af twenty under the title of Margaret III From her earliest childhood she had shown an independent disposition Tn these times she would be a suffragette for she believed not only in women having a voice in the government but in their governing Scarcely had she been proclaimed when she startled her people by calling for the resignation of the cabinet and filling the places made vacant with women The queen filled other offices with women and the men were standing about holding their hands Then a fat political job being given to a wo man the men thought it time to bestir themselves They sent the most ac complished handsomest and most se ductive men to the queen on one pre text or another hoping through her heart to attain their ends But the queen saw through their designs and laughed at them One day a knot of politicians hungry for plunder were discussing the situation when a little half deformed home ly man said to themIl you will back me up I will go to the queen and accomplish those things you desir j All I want is a suit of fine clothes A shout of laughter greeted his offer Then some one suggested that for a joke it be accepted Not long after this the queen re ceived a message that a special am bassador from a neighboring sovereign had arrived with a view to making a treaty Margaret expected to see a man of Imposing appearance and being some what timorous of such men steeled herself to meet him She was surprised to see a man barely five feet three inches high with long arms and legs and a slight curve in his back Nevertheless his head was large and he possessed one feature of remarka ble beauty and intelligencehis eye Margaret unbent to this insignificant creature at once assigned him a wing of the palace and as soon as he was readyhe seemed in no hurrybegan- to talk over the terms of the treaty Whenever the queen made a demand for a slice of territory a payment of indemnity or any such matter the am bassador would say in a soft voice Your majestys modesty in your de mands is what is to be expected froth a woman of such loveliness I shall advise my sovereign to double the amount you claim There was no difficulty in making a treaty on such terms and the queen closed the negotiations delighted with the envoy Then the treaty was sent to the other sovereign interested for confirmation and the ambassador obliged to wait for an answer returned to his apartments That night the queen heard a voice singing in the ambassadors wing ac companied by a guitar It seemed to her that it was the voice of an angel She listened till the song had ended and not hearing more sent a request for the singer to resume He did so and Margaret went to bed filled with the most entrancing thoughts The next day on inquiry she learned that the singer was the ambassador She asked him to sing to her but he excused himself saying that the spirit of music came to him only in accordance with its own sweet will It came however on balmy nights from a pleas ant distance and sounded especially sweet when the moon cast its soft light over the palace and the grounds in which it stood Queen Margaret always listened to it sitting at her bed room window and continued under its spell long after it had ceased Gradu ally the singer and the song became one Of the homely body nothing re mained but from the ambassadors bodyrseemed to beckon her to a higher holier existence Meanwhile during the day there be ing no treaty to talk about the queen egan to speak to the ambassador bout her affairs Never had she heard such wisdom such farsighted sugges- ions He told her that such a queen is she Would be a blessing to every people but in all kingdoms there was low grade work that coarse natured men could pl 6perly perform The treaty never came back and tln ambassador at last confessed that ho was no envoy but one who bavinjr seen his queen from a distance so worshiped her that he had been im yelled todo a dishonorable act for tin herIcompanionship iOne morning the journals announced that all the ministers had resigned and their places were to be filled with men Then the people waited for an announcement of the names of the members of the new cabinet WheiJT the name of the prime minister was published no one knew him At the first meeting of tIe cabinet a crowd surrounded the palace every one anx ious to get a view of him One by one the ministers passed out till they had jalIleft the

Tea had been served in the garden and after tea I consented to essay a little yentriloquism and the fifty or sixty guests grew very still Behind me rose a superb tree Looking up into the thick foliage I shouted in a loud and angry voice Hello What are you doing up thereTo my amazement a thin young voice replied I aint loIn no harm mister Im just awatchin the big bugs The guests glanced at one another smiling appreciatively Pulling myI self onbDid any one give you permission to climb up into that tree Yes sir The second groom sir Hes my cousin Well said I so far theres noI harm done but be careful not to fall and dont let any one see you All right mister said the humble voiceI turned to my audience and smiled and bowed triumphantly They broke into thunderous applause They said that they had never listened to ven triloquism so superb And they wei quite right too London Answers Rats Cold Weather Retreat Many animals snuggle together for warmth in bitter weather as the squir rels and the rats Those who go rat ting in hedges and dells in the winter know they may try a dozen freshly used burrows without finding a rat when suddenly from a single hole the rats will come pouring out in a stream of frenzied fur Twenty or more rats will lie together in one hole They are clever enough to block up a hole on the windward side to keep out the draft so that when a rat hole is noted newly stopped with soil tur nip leaves or grass here is almost ceritain indication that rats are Like the squirrels they store food for winter and the keeper may find it more difficult to secure his potatoes from frost than from the attack of tho most numerous of his furred foes London Standard A Rattled Bridegroom I Some few years agp a man of ma ture age found himself playing first fiddle to

he wrote with the easy air of one who had so written it there many years and turned carelessly On away leaving the proprietor inquired I hope you have enjoyed your honey moon with us Sirr But he merely turned the register back and pointed to this en try John Doe and bride He had been as rattled as any boy Philadelphia Ledger The Safest Employment The person who is least affected by trade

soms and many others who were X then among the richest families of the State had their homes farmslchanged hands at eight and ten thousands dollars There wgjx large fields of blue grass horses and cattle were raised in large number but the war comeon The negroes were freed fthe leading families moved to other sections The farms were allowed to go down and soon the ilit grass was displaced by sedge Where red top and clover fieldss once furnished hay for large numbers of stock now maybe found thickets of dogwood and sumac Some places have washed in deep gullies The fencing has gone to decay and so now farms that fifty years ago was worth a thousand Or so dollars can now be bought for a few hundred The land is just as good It will make one thousandj pounds of tobacco to the acrerit It will grow just as good red top and clover as ever Blue grass will yet thrive and so all that is lacking is a few dollars invest ed in fencing etc and men who are willing to work to make this one of
