Monroe CountyI In taking leave of Judge H C Bak er Circuit Judge of the 29th Judicial district the Tompkinsville News has this to say editorially Whith the adjournment of the Mon roe Circuit court last week ended the services of Judge H C Baker as our circuit Judge Six years ago he came to this county practically stranger to its people but he leaves the bench with a broad acquaintance and rich in the esteem of our people Judge Baker is an able lawyer and made and able and just judge Naught has ever been said against him on account of any official act but on the other hand our people praise and honor him for his great and just service while on the bench Doubtless no judge in Kentucky will quit the bench who has given a more universal satisfaction or that will be praised more for an ad ministration of righteousness and moral uplift than will Judge Baker At a banquit given in honor of Judg- Baker after the business of the court at Tompkinsville the following resolu tions were adoptedr1That we sincerely desire to ex press in this way to the Hon H C Baker the present Judge of this Judicial district our sincere appreciation of the learning ability dignity and justice which he has given to our peopl- during his term of office 2That throughout his term he ha in every way shown himself to be Christian gentlemen a skilled lawye- and a just Judge and has performed the streneuous duties of the office without fear or favor and with charity to ward men and an esteem and love fo the good of all of us almost withont parallel 3That whilst we are proud of th fact our county has furnished to the District his worthy successor we deep ly regret that we are no longer to hav with us Hon H C Baker who wit his inimciable qualities of mind heart and soul is worthy to be

of harvesta day and a night of festivity The neighbor boys and their sweethearts came on horseback Their steeds went to the stable where they were up to their ears in fodder The boys went out to shuck

Aurora Nebraska wrote for at local newspaper this fine thought My threeyearold son stood enraptured watching the setting of the sun It was a glorious sunset The great orb hung low in the western sky and all the west was bathed in aflame of golden light It was such a sunset as artists attempt to con vey to their canvas Iwas busy with some trivial matter at hand when a little voice interrupted me Papa is that our sun The lads face was aglow with the pleasure of the sight I hes itated a moment and then re plied Yes my boy thats our sun And no one can take itj away from us he rejoined son no one can take it away He was satisfied and turned to his play But his question brought to my mind a train of thought that would not leave How many of us go blindy through life groping our way amid the things of the earth training our eyes to pierce the darkness rather than enjoy the light and taking a meager por tion of our share of the pleas ures of life when it is ours to know and possess a thousand I blessings of nature put here for us by a loving Creator Ours is the golden sunset but we do not see it Ours is the sight of the waving green and the bloom of the flowers but we heed them not The song of the birds and the music of the brooks were made for our ear but we hear them not Our minds are full of the sordid thoughts of life and i business so crowded with daily cares that we miss the glories of nature and the blessed inspira tion which they bring We need the voice of the child to awaken us to an interest in the beauties of Gods wonderful creation and need to feel as did the little lad that the beautiful sunset was made for our enjoyment and f none may deny the sight to us To Form Association All the circuit judges of Ken tucky to the number about forty are to be invited to assemble in Louisville on the Tuesday of Christmas week to consider the organization of an Association of Kentucky Circuit Judges The suggestion was made t o the judges of the Jefferson circuit court about two years ago and was acted upon at a meeting of five of them immediately fol owingjoinlsession last week They approved of the plan and Judge Thomas R Gordon who with Judges Shackelford Miller Samuel B Kirby Matt ODoher ty and Homer W Batson were present were commissioned to write the letters of invitation The circuit judges of Kentucky have much in common and the interests of one are the interests jot all Through the association reforms in the system in vogue and imprvements of various kinds may be worked out and adopted 5 iCaseiof Too Much Ham r One morning

have been many stories by the novelists about the find ing of dead men under one circumstance or another but noth ing that we have ever read has been more thrilling than the simple story of the finding of the frozen corpses of the sailors who lost their lives in the Lake Erie catastrophe the other day The great still ferry boat had been missing for several days There were thirty two men upon it when it pulled out from the little Ohio city of Conneautfrom the Canadian port When it fail ed to put in itsappearance at the appointed time it began to be rumored that it had been lost Ic was known that a wickedly icy blizzard had swept the lake for a day Hours rolled by and the boat failed to be sightedand tugs went out at their peril in an effort to find the ship After several days a little tug WhiteIcapped boat afar offwith men sitting in it As it drew nearer it be came evident that themen were chilled or dead as they did not move at the approach of the tug When the tug was alongside of the little life boat it was seen that every one of the occupants was a frozen corpse Most of them were sitting uprightfroz- en stiff while still alive as it were One or two had toppled over and were frozen to the bottom of the craft But there they were nine of them men made in the image of their maker yet the stare of death in their facts icecoveredas sickening a sight as ever human being saw Of course all of these men did not perish at the same instant There must have been one who survived little longer than the rest the most robust perhaps certainly the one with the stout est heart Imagine if you can or if you care to try the feelings of that last survivor as the wings of death fanned his soul into eterni ty About him giving up one at a time his comrades First the one who fell to the bottom of the boat Then another and another took on a stare of glass Final ly there was only one beside him selfthe fellow facing him He must have seen the dew of death settling down upon him There was seven dead ones in the little boat There could be no doubt as to the ultimate end of the other two Finally the one sob bed or choked of passed away as quietly as a leaf settles to the ground and the sole survivor ex psrieSced the loneliness that no living man may know He hopedof course He knew the fate of those about him There was not a spar of any kind insight Still he hoped and watched and waited Once perhaps when a whitecapped wave leap ed a little higher than its fellows he imagined he had caught a glimpse of sail But the frozen spray shut out the view and when he wiped his eyes he saw only the dark horizon and the dead all about him But there is no use trying to imagine the mans emotions It could be done only by a master of fictiona Zola or a Hugo or a Robert Louis

REASONS FOR T 7aile it is a matter of real concern that thousands of snall iwvus re having their very lifeblood sapned out by the large incrtase in catalogue house business there atv some fpu tures in the cause of this increase that it would be well if merchants and residents of these same small towns woiid take into account One is he practice of the merchant in charg lug more thau a reasonable profit some lines of goods offered for sale Tins begets the mail order habit which doesut as a rule stop with the articles ou which unreasonable jiricey have been charged Another reason for the wail order business is that the home merchant so seldom in his advertising announcement if indeed he has one iu the home paper names a definite and specific price for bis goods a thing that is invariaoly done ill till mail order catalogue Another feature that is raising huh with more than ont town is that staples offered fur sale in its stores cost more than the same goods iu adjoining towns while the pries paid for live stocU and produce are from 10 to 30 centfy per hundred less Iii helping the small uml1rIart s that can be done by those wbyse iii terests fire most vitally involved CHINESE CORN 7 JIn lOOS the department of agricul ture at Washington received a siufill lot of shelled corn from China and a test was given it the same sea uItshowed qualities which may make it valuable in the breeding of a type of corn which will be adapted to thehot and semIarid couditfous of the south west The plant raised in the test averaged less than six feet iii height with an avdrage of a dozen green rIbeIgreatest teen to eighteen rows of small grains A peculiarity of this variety is that on tbe ppe1partt the stalk the leaves are all on one side instead of being arranged on both as in the na tire corn The upper leaves stand urect their tips extending beyond the tassel The silks of the ear are pro duced at the point where the leaf blade 14 joined to the leaf sheath and they appear before

garden land in the fall if you will throw it into ridges with a middle burster instead of leaving it flat you will prevent leaching to a great extent These ridges are an added advantage also in that it is much easier for the frost to penetrate and pulverize the soil Furthermore where land is thrown into ridges it will dry out quicker on the surface so that you will be able to work it sooner and get your vegetables planted earlier Here all that is necessary is to put a piece of scantling un der your smoothing harrow and drag the ridges down flat then work up the surface and plant your vegetables This often means two weeks start of your neighbor who waited until spring before Itameans larger crops too and bet ter crops X oo oo o r IWEEKlY 1 n I mew 1 HENRY WATTERSON rv- EditorIylsa
