money to improve the industrial moral or intellectual condition even though they realize its most ur neednSo far as we are able to see there no effort on the part of anyone to a vance the industrial

warrant a unit and determined effort The News hopes to aid in the rescue eCorruption in Politics becomee so sectionnof that plenty of money and a willingness to put it in the campaign are regarded as the chief qualifications for office In the present race for Circuit Judge in this district there has been more talk about how much mon each candidate will put into the ra ceby qualiinfi BS for the office of Circuit Judge This idea of money in elections to purchase and influence voters exists among most tmke a caand orhety satisfied The candidate who suggests that the race for office should be ma in accordance with the laws of the la politicihean ich provides that All elections shall be free and equal has received the practical construction that each candidate or party may do with impunity what he desires to secure his election Courts are created and held to prevent injuries and to redress wrongs The criminal Courts are intended to p vent and punish crime The Circuit Judge is the most important officer the State to enforce the criminal laws He should not go on the bench cover up with violations of the election lay Our Constitution provides Every p son shall be disqualified from holdi any office of trusts or profit for thec term for which he shall have been elected who shall be convicted of have given or consented to the giving offer or promise of any money or other th of

fined and imprisoned and be excluded from office and suifferage The Circuit Judge is required by Sec 1591 Kentucky Statutes to charge t Grand Jury specially as to the election laws at the first court

with himself if smoking was really injuriousbut he never questionKLater he went into society and discovered that some women are pretty and that some bake good bread He often thought he would marryonly he could never seem to decide which kind he preferred He grew mighty interested n science and thought he might f write a book about something of 4 the sort but he never did f He joined five churches one at a timebut he never felt quite sure he had hit the right one He believed in single tax socialism and high tariffbut he f r wasnt sure that things were not better as they were I In time he grew gray and weak in the knees One day he was taken very ill He called in IIa homeopath an allopath an osteopath and an herb doctor L They all prescribedbut he couldent decide which medicine was most likely to cure him So he took them all Then he died And his friends thingIhe had ever done At last he had arrived at a conclusionEx t change U MeritPt Merit should be rewarded Too f often we witness

an item in a re cent issue of Cincinnati Post High Bridge over the Kentucky river is soon to be replaced by a modern steel structure Talk of this kind was current sometime ago but of late nothing has been said about the matter in the newspapers save the following from the Post The historic High Bridge used by the Cincinnati Southern Railroad in crossing the Ken tucky river which has been visited each year by thousands of Cincinnati excursionists is to be replaced by a modern steel structure capble of being double tracked and costing approximate ly 10000The that the bridge was built by the city of Cincinnati more than a quarter of a century ago when the city built the Southern has caused it formany years to be an object of interse- to many excursionists The new bridge to replace i will be at the same great hei from the river but it will be wide enough for a double track and the center pier will support a steel signal tower iiThe Southern Construction Department has completed re vised plans and is calling for bids for the work The new bridge will consist of three spans each 300 feet in lengthDan ville Advocate What is the best kindof food to give a milch cow 1 The proper

all her schoolmates and teachers Every one loved Gertrude for she was always so good and kind Oh how much we shall miss her bright and happy face yet we know that God knew best and has transplanted the little bIos som to bloom in the bright world above The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away We can only bow in mission to the will of the FatherII in Heaven who doeth all well and look up tears

your home a gentle spirit of light that flitted in and out like a gleam of sunshine No one can fill her place in the vacant chair no one can take her place in your hearts and you would not have the void filled even if you could It will be a sacred thought in the years to come to parents and friends that she shed radiance in the home as long as she did But she has found another home thats

becauseI lf fi when in his cups he was unable to locate his home whichwas one of a row of miners houses all as much alike as peas in a pod One afternoon in the only booze joint in the town Uncle Hiram was bragging that he had the matter so arranged now that he could find his own home no matter how dark the night or Heiexplained boulder at the front gate and that when he stubbed his toe against the boulder he would know that he was at home The boys all declared that it was a capital scheme and assured him moreItrouble in finding his own fire side in the future Meantime some one in the crowd went out andgave a small boy a dime to move Uncle Hirams boulder two door farther down the street to the front gate of a worthless fellow named Dave Skinner When the time came for Uncle Hiram to go home he was some what the worse for liquor but makeIa on until he came to his boulder he went in and finding Dave in possession and supposing that Dave was visiting him he proceeded to try to make Skinner feel welcome When supper time arrivedall marched out to the kitchen and sat down to a rather scant meal poorly prepared In true mountain style Uncle Hiram told Dave that all the vitiles on this table yourI use no man ners All present fell to with aright hearty goodwill ex spiteIwas wrong although it never oc curred to him that he was anywhere except home Several times he straightened up as if in the act of saying something but each time relapsed into silence Finally seeming unable to stand the strain any longer he looked at Dave and said Dave I am no hand to apologize but I have been

We left San Francisco October 5th and arrived in Manila Oct 30th covering a distance of 7000 miles in 25 days having nice weather and still water for the greater part of the voyage The first two days out from San Francisco after passing through the Golden gate we had some rough sea but the Sailors said it was not bad butI thought it was for sometimes the waves would splash over the top deck and the ship rolled and pitched so bad it was with great diffictlty that I kept my feet under me One soldier was thrown out of his bunk when the ship rolled off of a fairly good size wave This seems to be a left handed country inmost every way The Philippines do things backwards they pass to the left instead of the right when driving They run horse races in the opposite direction put their locksand key holes upside down motion for you to go away when they want you to approach Pull a plane toward them when smoothing a board put a roof on a house be fore they have anything to sup port it and in case they happen to wear a shirt they leave the portion nearest the ground to flutter in the breeze instead of decently tucking it away as we have been taught was proper They seldom ever wear any shoes They have a slipper that consists of a sole and just enough upper to slip their toes in and leave the heel to beat a tattoo as they shamble along the street But they dont need any shoes as the weather is always warm While you are sitting around your stove and perhaps it isI freezing weather there it is 90 in the shade hereIBut this country has one bad drawback and that is the rain for it rains

ERISpecial Correspondence The wheels of national legislation would go sadly awry if Washington awoke some fine morning to find that the men who have given years of their lives to aid the senators and represent atives in their duties had been sudden ly spirited away for there are clerks of committees employees of the senate and house who have vast stores of knowledge regarding the proper course to be pursued with the legislative problems that present themselves to each congress and who are almost in dispensable to the expeditious transac tion of the public business There are employees of this character at the cap forItwentyThe three officers of the house elect ed by the members at the beginning of each new congress are the clerk of the house the sergeant at arms and the doorkeeper of the house The present Incumbents have been in office for years and are extremely to be reelected when the Sixtyfirst congress assembles after March 4 in extra session The offices of clerk of the house and sergeant at arms have almost invariably been given to former members of the house The present clerk Alexander McDowell came to the capitol first as a representative from Pennsylvania being elected to the Fiftythird congress on the Repub lican ticket He was elected clerk of the house during the Fiftyfourth con gress The Quorum Provider The sergeant at arms Henry A Cas son came here from Wisconsin He was at one time chief clerk of the de partment of agriculture This was in the day of Jeremiah Rusk whose pro tege Casson was The position of ser geant at arms of the house requires considerable tact and Mr Casson fills the bill to a t He has been called upon when members so far forgot themselves as to come to blows on the floor of the house which they sometimes do there Another job put upon the sergeant at arms is to bring in the members when there is a call of the house to vote upon a measure of Importance There are times when Mr Casson is compelled to take members from entertainments receptions and dinners He has cruelly yanked them out of their beds unless they were too ill to come in order that a quorum of the house might be on hand Expert on Parliamentary Law The doorkeeper of the house is Frank B Lyons He came into his office about CassonNo the same time as McDowell and II in the house occupies a more responsible position than Asher C Hinds the parliamentary clerk to the speaker Mr Hinds stands ever at the speakers right hand and informs on all questions relating to the himI of the house and to parliamentary Mr Hinds is probably the best posted man on parliamentary law onthis side of the Atlantic ocean He came to Washington first as a newspaper man galIer Reed appointed him his clerk in 1890 He rapidly proved himself a wonderfully clever parliamentarian and has held the position ever sincejLearned In Naval Pittman Pulsifer clerk to the naval committee of the senate is officially designated as Senator Hales secretary There is no other privateI in the country
