that the school has been thereby establishedFurther that the plaintiffs were elected and are the trustees of said school and as such have the right to the pos session use and control of the common school property in the Graded school district including the common school house and lot in district No 29 and that the trustees of the town of Colum bia hold only the naked legal title to the property in trust for common school purposes and have no beneficial interest therein That the Trustees of the graded scnool are entitled to have the same sold and the proceeds applied to the- urposes of the Graded school The court sustains the demurrers of of the plaintiffs to each of the para graphs of defendants answers and counterclaim in effect holding that the defendants have not by their pleadings presented anydefense to the plaintiffs action or shown any cause why the election is not valid and the school es tablished Upon further hearing of the case the parties may be premitted to amend their pleadings and raise other issues but so far as questions have been raised the trustees appear to be fully sustain ed by the opinion of the court The opinion is quite lenghty showing careful and

of this month will be St Patricks Day It will observed by the Irish people throughout the United States i r 4 r For Union Revival It has been suggested by some of the interested church workers that the ap proaching Hendrix and Carter meetings advertised for the Presbyterian church should be a union meeting enlisting all of the local churches There is no known reason why this should not be done These Evangelists are accustomed to conducting such meetings in much larger communities than our own They have had remarkably good success everywhere Preaching an earnest simple and direct gospel message they soon win their way to the hearts of the people Mr Hendrix is the preacher of the combination arid an exceptionally inter esting one Not profound but full of the gospel of hope and good cheer He abounds in manliness and sunshine un til he has been styled the Suushine EvangelistaMr Carter in one of the best khown gospel singers of today Hesings with great power and effectiveness and is a splendid organizer of the singers of the community He uses the Winona Hymns one of the latest and best collections for revival purposes Should the plan for a union meeting seem best for our town then should every Christ ian man and woman get busy for much careful preparation sHonld be made God gives his blessings as we are in readiness for them Certainly with the beautiful fellowship existing among our churches there should come a co operation in service that will bear a rich harvest of souls Let the matter be freely discussed and sucha conclu sion reached as shall honor the Master and

Graphic AccountI t of that Thrilling Battle r WITHOUT MORGANS CONSENT Famous General Did Not Know the Attack on the Federals Was to Be Made History of His Much Vaunted Oyer r coat Which is Now Held by f the Writer tHon Patrick H Bridgewater of near Cane Valley Adair county Ky furnished the Dispatch with the following most interest ing history of John Morgans overcoat and sketch of the bat tIe of Green River Bridge i n the year 1863 To the Editor of The Dispatch About six years ago I had pub lished in the Louisville Courier Journal a sketch of the battle and the overcoat of John Mor gan in which I made some mis takes not as to the overcoat but as to the battle so I herein cor rect the mistakes and request the Dispatch to republish it in its revised form But to return to the overcoat I have in my possession the overcoat of the Confederate Gen John H Morgan This relic of the war came into my possession in this wise On the night of July third 1863 Gen Morgan and his staff stayed all night at my fathers house in Cane Valley Adair county ICy The next morning being the Fourth of July some of Mor gans forces attacked the Yan kees at Green River Bridge while the General was still back at my fathers When General Morgan learned of the fight he hastened to the battleground and in his hurry he left his over coat at my fathers house which remained in my fathers posses sion till his death Since then it has been in the possession of the writer A short history of the battle of Green River Bridge may be interesting to some of the read ers of the Louisville Dispatch This bridge is situated over Green river in Tibes bend in Taylor county on the Campbellsville and Columbia pike eight miles from the former and twelve miles from the latter town When Gen Morgan arrived in the vicinity of the informedothat the bridge was held by the Twentyfifth Michigan Infantry commanded by Col D C Moore Morgan wished to pass on north without hindrance demanded a surrender of the bridge on the evening of the 3rd of July 1863 which the General thought was accorded as his scouts reported the enemy evacuating the bridge on the thebtnext morning the Fourth of July Col Johnson of Morgans command found the Yankees strongly entrenched in a small opening close to and facing the pike The Confederates held a short conference as to the bes plan o f attack Col Johnson Lt asked if there was a man An the regiment acquainted with the lo cajity around the bridge He was informed that Capt R A r Webster waswell acquainted v with the whole country about theJ bridge Capt Webster was r hunted up and went to Col John V son and drew a diagram In the Must of the road of the situation I of the bridge and the country around the bridge It was then decided that Capt Webster should take a company of the best troopers and go around through Lemons bend and across the river at Hatchers warehouse a point below the bridge which intersected with the pike at or near James CaldwelFs farm and then to go back to the bridge and then Morgan was to attack the enemy from both ends ofI the pike However before Capt Webster crossed the river with his troopers Col Johnson in his eagerness for the attack ad vanced his battery within 400 yards of the enemys entrench ment and openedfire After killing some of the Yankees the remainder ran out of their entrenchments and fell back down the pike hehind their brestworks which consisted of large trees cut down for that purpose A small portion of Johnsons command dismounted and pursued the enemy within a few yards o f their breastworks Only a few Confederates could get at them As each side of the pike was so densely covered with underbrush you could scarcely see a man twenty yards standing up So the Yankees shot down Morgans men as fast as they advanced on them This attack was made without Gen Morgan consent or knowledge it was done while the General was back at my fathers house six miles from the bridge In the meantime Gen Morgan arrived on the battleground and seeing the situation of the enemy he was convinced of the hopelessness of further resistance on his part and he felt it his duty to shift from himself the responsi bility of any further effusion of blood He ordered a flank move which was done in good order carrying off all his guns and the wounded but leaving his dead in the hands of the enemy who buried them all in one pit by the side of the piket The Federals reported many fewIdaysI in the reinterment of the Confederate dead about seven years after the battle and we exhumed only twentythree skulls Those together with the bones of other brave Confederate boys now lie on top of the high cliff on Green river in Taylor county within a few hundred yards of where they fell and a beenIover remaIns mark the

that of opium smoking No recent reforms are worthy to be compared in point of widespread effect with those of suppression of the REV Eo W THWING opium traffic and abolition of opium accomplishelJThe theIpresidencyRev Charles H Brent has brought out many startling facts as to the prevalence of the evil among millions of people and its degrading results The Chinese imperial decree declared that the habit of hitting the pipej had pauperized to a greater or degree from 30 to 40 per cent of the population of the empire From a com mercial and industrial as well as moral standpoint the subject has therefore assumed extraordinary importance The fact that opium smok ing has been on the increase in the United States gives especial interest to the recent action of congress in pro hibiting importation of the drug AHMED RIZA The Leader of the Young Turks Party In the Sultans Domain The developments in the direction of self government among the Turks naturally excite interest and attention in the United States which is the country standing foremost in tieeyes of the world as the champion of free dom arid popular government The assembling of the first Turkish parlia ment was followed not long afterward as might perhaps have been expected by the fall of the first ministry formed AHMED IUZA under the ne- wconstitution headed by the grand VMzier KiamiL Pasha The chamber of deputies directed its presiqentAh med Riza to re quest the sultan to appoint in place of Kiamil Pasha a prime ministeriPossess ing the confidence jk the chamber This was ah over- whelmihg vie tory for the Young Turks party They have long distrusted the grand vizier who though he has fought and suffered for the constitutional principle did not move quite fast enough for them He had shown favor to the other and more conservative branch of the reform par ty the Liberal Union The Young Turks party calls itself the committee of union and progress Kiamil Pasha suspected the committee of conspiring establishi I Yussef IzzedDin eldest son of the late sultan To counteract or forestall it he caused changes in the ministry which brought on a tempest in the parliament and led to his being dei nounced by the Young Turks as a re actionary He resigned and the sultan charged Hilrni Pasha with the forma tion of a new cabinet Ahmed Riza is regarded as the offl j cial leader of the party now in control in the government lIe was born Constantinople e and in early life inI ed himself to the education of countrymen along liberal and pro gressive lines This got him into trouble with the government and he fled to Paris where for twenty years he edited the Mechverel devoted to political reform among his countrymen He returned to Constantinople but did not remain long and for some years continued in Paris and other European cities his efforts in behalf of reform movements The success of these move ments resulted in his return horne On assuming office as president of the chamber of deputies he expressed the hope that the new parliament would avoid mistakes and address lt tell chiefly to reform of the finances a t it 2 v e i r J tlf l JI t ifeilM Irr Y Lon street someIfairer weather and with

her bedside hoping and praying that her life might be spared and at 7 oclock a m on Sunday Jan 31 1909 her spirit took its flight to God who gave it- The deceased was a daughter of Mr and Mrs Pink Corbin and was born Dec 2 1861 making her 47 years 1 month and 29 days oldvas married to W L Sneed Dec 24 1896 She professedreligion early in life joined the Methodist church and lived a devoted

Flowers on the Farm The farmers family is as a rule composed of busy people who have so many necessary duties that however much they love flowers find it hard to cul tivate them to any extent Still this plan has been tried and provedvery satisfactory to a lady I know She had one flower bed near her porch three feet by ten feet with a low wire trellis next the porch for nasturtiums to grow on In the middle was a row of geraniums in front By the kitchen windows she planted a row of seeds of tall castor bean plants and in the vegetable garden next to the front fence she had a bed about four feet wide the length of the garden planted with seeds in groups First mixed candytuft then aquilegia then alyssum this is beautiful and sweet then be gonias then pansies then helio trope then phlox etc until all the bed was full She found that it was often convenient for the men to dig the flowers be ing sq near the vegetables and the beauty of the flowers was so great that an added interest was given to the care of the entire garden She had rich soil and sunn exposure which she could get in no other place Cor Fruits and Flowers i 1y 5 rr Your Town-=More towns die for want of x confidence on

were no cushions in the 1Jipews She offered to stand half the p conItributed1 it and he was the boss He said 53wanted no changes Aunt Sally heI even Just what Aunt Sally meant by her lialf threat soon developed She came fto church lugging a big feather pillow under her arm and the pillow was used in her pew for a cushion She had come in late and the sight walking up the aisle with the piIlowI was a novelty It was more scandalous that is Deacon BO considered it and he opened his batteries as soon as the benediction was pronounced Never in all his life had he heard of such a thing and he hoped for the good of the cause and the morals of society the pillow would be left at home thereafter Look ahere deacon answered Aunt Sally I was watching you all through the sermon and you was hitching around on the hard seat like a boy on tacks You may continue to hitch if you want to but I shant This pillar will come with me every Sunday until we have pew cushions I dont believe the Lord is going to punish any one for wanting to be comfortable in church But our forefathers stood up to worship argued the deacon Yes I know and I guess they got more religion in their legs than in their souls If you dont want me to come to meeting you can say so but if I come the pillar omes along The deacon said it was a ranK case of heresy and he would have put her out if he could have secured any sup port All others advised him to let the matter go and for three months Aunt Sally and her pillow were features of the morning service But she wasnt satisfied with her victory Summer was coming on and the flies were com ing about and she boldly broached the subject of protecting the church with screen doors and windows And make a complete surrender to Satan shouted the good old deacon as he grew red in the face Dont you try to keep flies out of your house 1 she asked But my house Is not a church If the Lord wills it that flies shall enter this sanctuary it is not for us to keep them outII saw you batting at one that want ed to light on your nose last Sunday Then I shall ask forgiveness for it Sister Bently you have almost disor ganized this church with your feather pillows and other ideas and you must go no further We were years in driv ing Satan and his temptations out and now they must stay out Ill pay half on the screens she persistedYou would probably pay half to lave a fiddle introduced here to help outthe singing but that will never be If I had to open a screen door to get lnto this church I never could feel right in my conscience thereaftpr Aunt Sally went home to do some thinking She hadnt far to go and the barn on her place was still nearer The flies had really become a nul permitLwho waved them too vigorously And besides it is a trick to fan the back of ones neck and keep a bluebottle fly at a distance She felt that she must adopt some heroic measure to call at tention to the nuisance and after three or four days the idea came to her She had half an acre of ground around her house and she decided that a couple of hives of bees would give the place a more homelike look 15he therefore engaged a man with a team to go forth among the farmers and make a purchase Just whether the good woman Itimed the man to get back on a SaturI day night will never be known but it did come out that she advised him toI 3eave his wagon and t hives in the alley near the churc ver Sunday And suspiciously eno some folks thought she did not attend church oil Sunday It rained Saturday and her rheumatism was worse Sunday morning brought hot weath tel There was the usual congregation and doors and windows stood open and the flies frolicked Bno possi Jility could Aunt Sally have known that a certain boy would come loafing along that street at 11 oclock on his way to the river Neither could she have told that he would halt on see 3ng the hives and the bees flying around and after two or three minutes pick up three or four rocks and send them against the hives with a smash Of course the bees resented Jit They werent taking any sass off v a tow headed boy The trouble how tj ever was that the boy put on rapid huntlngmounlthe open doors and windows of the church and they reasoned that one kind of meat was as good as another for them and they entered Three minutes later the congregation was going out They went put the handiest way and without decorum There were shouts and shrieks and and the two doctors in the wailsI Itheir hands full for the next days Somehow or other Satan didnt 1come into possession He didnt two weeks later when the building was screened nor six weeks later when the pews were cushioned They even put in a furnace and parlpr organ and c painted the building in time M QUAD t I fi4A I q 1 Getting Ready For Coal War Anthracite Operators Pile Black Diamonds Mountain High In Anticipation of Any Situations Which May Arise From Difficulty With Employees THE arbitration agreement be the an thracit6 coal min and the operators signed after the strik in tIle anthra cite region in 190G will expire on March 31 There is much interest in the question of what the conditions will be which will exist at that time The region has already begun to feel the agitation of the miners for a new agreement more favorable to them and business is slackening through concern over the possibility of a strikeTbat the coal roads do not mean to be caught napping is indicated in the an nouncement from Philadelphia that more than 10000000 tons of coal have been stored by then The Philadelphia and Reading Coal company is prepar ing for any struggle with mine labor ers that may ensue by piling up in its yards near Norristown Pa millions of tons of the black fuel As the an thracite miners who belong to the United Mine Yorkers seem determined upon gaining further concessions from their employers and President Baer of the Reading road leader of the corporation forces controlling the anthracite mining industry has not experienced any change of views in regard to labor organization which he has always bit terly opposed the prospect of a dead lock and cessation of work is not alto gether remote At any rate orders have been given to store all the coal possible in readiness for any action the miners may take and the mountains of fuel that are arising in various centers of the industry are visible evidence that the employers mean to be well stocked with ammunition in case of a struggle with their employeesI In order to avoid as far as possible strikes av disagreements between the Ifir r d PRESIDENT BAEB AND THE COAL MOUN ThINS NEAR KOKRISTOWN miners and the operators businessmen of the coal mining regions of Pennsylvania are expressing them selves in favor of a three years agree ment with the miners This will be the most important topic for the corn ing conference between the coal min ers and the operators of the anthracite section of te state Hitherto it has been the custom to draw up this agree ment for one year The boards of trade throughout tlu anthracite regions have adopted reso lutions in favor of the long agreement The merchants argue that a one years agreement disturbs business at the first of every year Normal conditions therefore are not reached until about May 1 Five months of uncertain business every year they say is just a little bit too much The miners on the other hand de clare that a one years agreement was formulated in the recent miners con vention for the best interests of the underground workers They also declare that at the coming conference between the miners and the operators they will insist that this clause be inserted in the contract which will be drawn up between them The union miners are asking that their union shall make an agreement with their employers and that the employers shall be the collecting agents for the union dues Other requests on the part of the men are liable t j lead to disagreement So far the operators are standing pat abiding by the last arbitration order and not promising more than it made incumbent upon them What He Overlooked I might have known that you would refuse me1 said the poor but otherwise honest young man who had failed to impress the fair maid There was a metallic ring in your voice when I entered the parlor that boded me no good Had you been a little more observ ant she replied you might have no ticed a
