at 3b He made a nice pick up on a hard run and started the fastset double play that was made i il Rosenfield hadnever caught a south paw pitcher before but did Veil with theSexception pf 2 innings while his batting also featured the game making a single and a two base hit his two baste hit was timely scoring Wilson from 2nd The double plays made by Bardstown were fast Three times it looked like Columbia would score but fast double plays retired them without a run I Station at 2nd made a great ban hand stop that cost Columbia one run It took fast playing by Bardstown to keep the score down as every Colum bia batter was hitting the ball on the nose and Bardstown could hardly touch Wilson Rosenfield caught one running nap ping on third with his snap throw the umpire was sweeping off the plate at the time and would not allow the out That was the third out the next man- up scored him with a hit If the umpire had seen the play Bardstown would hive got only one hit and possibly lost the

the lookout for a farm may profit by reading it Small farms possess many advantages oyer large holdings and for the capital invested pay much larger dividends The owner of a small farm does not envy the bonanza agriculturist who becomes a slave to his broad acres In general men who engage in husbandry are ambitious to own two much land and in this way become in many Instn 1cesprofitably work

poMibilitie put of 9 tOl 4 ir i V a farm it must be equipped with pro per appointments and stocked with imo proved breeds of animals The outbuildings need to be economically ar ranged and of a class to afford properi protection to his stock If all ones capital is invested in land the owner is destined to struggle for years to make his necessary improvements Beginning with inexpensive betterments the farmer is forced into a life of self denial before he can attain to the comforts of life which might have been his for jears had he been content with less land and better improvements The farm improved with poor fences and outbuildings inferibr wells and no windmills continually subjects its own er to losses of crops and livestock Large farms require much help to successfully operate them The big farm is always short of ample laborers to efficiently operate it At great ex pense crops are often produced only to be sacrificed because the farmer cannot obtain the requisite amount of help

Columbia for their home n Urbana Ill they took with them a chair made for Roger Mourning just after the battleof Brandywine he having been wounded in that fight The chair was made of white hickory throughout the main parts not so large asthe average chair the seat being about eighteen inches from the floor and the arms of only moderate size This chair seems to be as stout as when made the only evidence of wear being on the front rounds which shows a fifth gone but still stout and re tarns the elasticity of the material as when first put together The original bpttpm gave way about forty years ago but was replaced by Mr John D Mourning who nsed wite oak splits and which will probably last for sixty more years The chair as above stated was made for Roger Mourning and at his death became the property of his son JohnI D whose home was near Columbia and the father of Mr C S Mourning into whose possession it now rests Just when it was brought to this section from Virginia we have no record but its original owner took the Western trail with the early settlers of Adair and remained here to do his duty in the hardships of pioneer life For several bymembersofbutMr C S Mourning

put on Smiths coffin and Smiths name on Wells coffin The mistake was not learned un til Wells wife stopped the funer al procession two miles from the grave and had the coffin opened The first time she

there He looked over his barn and horses and realized that what electric burglar alarms failed to do his guinea hens did Expert burglars visited the stable at2 oclock and after cutting all thej electric telephone wires they had Mr Hartogs best team on the barn floor and were hitching the animals to a wagon loaded with harness when half a guiner hens set upa cackel for which this fowl is

Mileage Graft The early statesmen of the republic before the days of rail roads fixed themileage of Sen atqrs and Congressmen at 20 cents per mile This was at a q time when the trip to Washing jtonand return had to be made stagecoach The allowance was rreasonable and just Today Senators and Congressmen ride over the railroad to and from Washington at two cents per mile Until quite recently most of them rode on passes But I they all continue to draw 20 cents per mile going to and com ing from the Capital City It is a deliberate swindle aI brazen robbery a shameless graft And yet if there IS a Senator or a Congressman who has refused to be a party to this theft we have not heard of him IIeddone to meet modern conditions A Senator or Congressman whose salary is 7500 a year is allowed 100 or more for mileage without having traveled a mile If this is not stealing what is it The fact is that Senators and Congressmen ought to pay their i fifare the same as other people if and if they had any selfrespect f they would do it A hod carrier v In search of a job has to pay railroad fare for every mile he tray els or walk the ties A washer woman with a family compelled to visit a dying relative has to pay fare but Senators and Con- gressment who fix their salaries at more thah600 per month and alhd i themselves liberal perqui sits fbr expenses can not afford topay their fare All of this

happy family is but ah ear lier heaven There never was a woman but was just aching to tell some other woman how to do up her hair The reason why women do not propose is supposed to be due to the fact that they want to have the last word It is worth a thousand dollars a year to have the habit of look ing on the bright sides of things It is just as wicked to indulge in mental profanity as to swear right out loud and much more injurious to the digestion Kindnes is stowed away in the heart like rose leaves in a draw erto sweeten every object aroundMany a life full of promise has been wrecked owing to the want of a definite aim in life and the only way to insure success is to determine upon a certain line of action to have an ultimate object i n view and to make every effort to reach the goal and secure the prize There are two kinds of schools in this country both strong in their influences educating the boys in strictly opposite direc tions The school house educa tion on the one hand and the street eduuation on the other are alarmingly different The Nations prosperity depends upon which school educates the boys It is wicked to loaf Every man is created for a purpose and he has no right to shirk that responsibility No man has aright to loaf Nothing can be more humiliating to a parent than to know that his son is a confirmed loafera mere blankabsorbing- his living from the toil of other hands and creating nothing No sensible young lady will allow a confirmed street loafer to enter her company No able bodied strongminded person ever want ed work who was unable to find it There is always plenty of work to do If you cant get paid for your labor go and work for nothingit will be better for you and when you have fully demonstrated that you can easily find a paying job The man or boy who is content to live like a drone beesponging off the othersshould be forced on his own resources and compelled to swim or sink Twould be best for society Boys if you have ever loafed

years the residents of that sections have been buying notions of Sarah Long who kept store at High Falls The store keeper disposed of much merchan dise and the people of the vicini ty showed her due respect and friendship Sarah lived alone in an apartment near the store Joe Lewis a negro was one of the several hundred laborers on the aqueduct of New York water supply system there and Joe im

discussion of late in the press andin the magazines in regard to the number ofwomen who are entering the trades and professions Prof Thomaswho is connected with the University in Chicagohas been writing a- very remarkable thought pro yoking series of articles for the American Magazine and in Sep temper issue of this periodical he devotes himself to a consideration of this subject Part is as followsIt idle indeed to speak of the exclusion of women from the occupations They are entering them from the top and from the bottom of the ladder The ill conditioned are being forced into them and the wellconditioned those whom men have been edu cating while deploring the use of their educationare already en tering them at the topin consid erable numbers And they are finding new and characteristic ways of giving to society that reserve of affection andnurture which they have heretofore re served for the child and the home In the year 1900 there were more than 5000000 gain fully employed in the United States a s against 23753836 men the rate of increase be tween 1890 and 1900 of the num ber of women so employed was much greater than the corres ponding increase for the employ ment of men for women 328 per cent for men 219 per ceut and the number of women gainfully I employed increases more rapid ly in the- population decade than the female So whether we wish it or not the old order is already changing rapidly It is too late to theorize on t his point I t means simply that the old idea thatall women should live on the activities of men and should limit their own interests to the hearing and rearind of childrenr has gone to piecesE Town News Newspapers Fared Poorly The newspaper people seem to have fared more unfortunately at Washington than any other interest says the Dubois Pa Express It was understood during the closing days of congress that the proposed rate of four dollars a ton on print paper would be reduced to 350 but the reports say the duty on paper is to be 375 per ton Mr Mann of Illinois who was chair man of the special committee of the last congress which conduct ed an extensive investigation of the price of paper some months ago absolutely refused to vote for the conference report and voted with the Democrats It seems that the printers had no friends at duringI the final roundup probably because they are expected to take their medicine and go on boost ing little fellows into prominence in public life The argument for the placing of hides on the free list was the beef trust con trols the hide business It would be

The Kentucky State Board of Health has just issued a Circu lar for public distribution on the subject of the prevalence of ty phoid fever in this State and suggesting methods for prevent ing the disease as well as recom mending a plan of treatment of patients who become infected with the disease The Circular says that an average of 13305 cases of this disease and 1579 deaths are reported in Kentucky every year The Circular adds thatThe cost of caring for those sick of it to say nothing of the sorrow suffering and loss of life for the year is reported as being 963750 At the very low esti mate of 2500 for each life lost the actual money value of those dying was 3947500 If to this be added the cost of caring for the sick it gives a total loss to the people of Kentucky from this one disease in an average year of 4911250 Six rules are given for the guidance of persons interested in protecting the health of them selves or of their neighbors A copy of the Circular can be ob tained by writing to Dr J N McCormack Secretary of the Board of Health at Bowling Green Ky The Much Despised Corn Cob 1 Corn cobs are rated by farm ers about like sawdust and broom corn seed in point of fertility and all three are thrown away or burned as worthless matter In fact at some elevators where corn is shelled by hundreds of wagon loads a furnace is pro vided and the cobs are dumped into it from the sheller to go up- in smokeThis a great waste fully as great as burning the strawstack says a correspondent in Indiana Farmer The cob is especially rich in soil food The large residue in the way of ashes indi cates potash The fierce heat of the cob fire indicates how much carbon and a chemical analysis will show the presence of phos phorus and lime in no mean quantity In fact there is no waste material in the cob It is only a little difficult to make available because slow to rot But there are two ways in which this may be overcome First a farmer who has a corn crusher can run a load of cobs through tin a few minutes and thus ren der them available to oxygen Second they may be plowed under more easily than any other form of raw unrotted material except sawdust and here their slow process of disintegration will be the very thing desired Nothing can be better under the surface of meadow land or more useful as a feeder for the roots of the trees in an orchard- I know this by experience I plowed and tended my present little orchard for eight years Before the last breaking I coy ered the surface all over with halfdecayedcobs from our ele vator which fortunately has no incinerator and with a one horse barshovel plow I turned them under four to six inches deep It is now the third sum mer since this was done and any Qnecannotice theeffect on the trees They are thri

Sicktonly25c I Catching Hawks A writer in an Eastern paper says there is no better way for catching hawks than an ordinary steel trap not too large mounted on top of a common fence rail or long pole set firmly in the groundMIt is best located on some mod erately high point in the middle of a wide field where there are t no trees or other objects upon which a bird may light No bait is needed The trap is simply opened on top of the pole where the bird sets it off and is caught in the act of alighting of course the trap must be firmly secured to the pole The device is based on the principle that birds of prey habitually light on promi nent objects in large open spaces where they will have a good out look for game A trap well placed will during one season catch all the hawks within a radius of several miles Owls and other large birds are also frequently found in the trap The longer and more substantial the pole t fi the better it is j SentenceSN i Creeds are known by their deeds f

love for men The secret of success is exclusive persistence This is a sad world to those who go hunting for pleasure Love is eternal because it never worries about dying The friends we buy are never worth what we pay for them They who sympathize know the eloquence of silence Faith is often nearest to being dumb when it has most words The virtues are never the stronger for giving them a vacation x There may be many longing for heaven for whom leaven is not longing Most of the philosophy on pain i works well only in application to others To envy those who rise is to cut down the steps by which we might ascend = V rt Great Tie Bill Last year 56000000 was spent by the railroads of the United States for cross ties The average price of the ties was 50 cents Fortythree per cent of the ties were
