had to go the way of all the earth As doubtless many know my life has been one of sadness and lonliness since and when 1 saw the flames and smoke issuing from that old building it seemed as if a dear old friend was struggling in tl1E mighty throes of death But thanks to the brave boys who gave the alarm and worked with untiring zeal and to al who helped from myself and all ray tenants one of whom

was a great deal of newspaper talk about a railroad to be built from Danville to Scottsville Ky In fact a part of the route was surveyed and a great many people had confidence in the project A man named Allen was the promotor and his headquarters D nnlille He led the people a 1wereat that he could raise the nec to build the road in fact he had already arranged with a syndi cate to take up the stock One day an old man giving his name as Williams appeared in Danville He was a rail road contractor and he at once made a deal with Mr Allen to do a certain amount of the work His teams and machinery were in Springfield Mo and he needed some ready cash to pay freight to Danville He had a draft of 15000 which he deposited in the local bank Mr Allen endorsing the same Mr Williams drew 2060 on the draft and departed He did not show up at he given time and the draft proved to- eb a forgery Allen started on the hunt of Mr Williams but failed tofjnd him and he had the 2000 to pay Time went on and finally the old man was arrested oat west and was returned to Danville tried and sent to the penitentiary for five years It turned out that Williams real name was Ed Burns anotorious confidence

at aboutj from six oclock to sixthirty disappears below the horizon The comet is the same one that was seen by former President Roosevelt in South Africa two weeks ago It was seen in Arizona several days later and was witnessed by astronomers at St Louis University Since then it has appeared further east as it is travtling in an easterly direction Leading astron omers are unable to give the proper classification of the comet or to say how long it will be visible in the west ern skies Its position in the sky is between 15 and 20 degrees to the north of the sun It appeared to be a reddish yellow col lor and has a tail plainly discernable which astronomers say is really two tails when seen with an instrument It is growing dimmer and will soon become invisible The tail as seen by the naked eye is about thirty times its seeming diameter v Moving Day o To do business with Russell Co customers will have to visit the big store on the South east corner of the square The firm has been

published newspaper article on night riding in Kentucky its causes and re suits Senator Bradley of that State uttered vigorous protest against what he declared was the injustice and the falsity of the story He took exception to th assertion in the article that con ditions in Kentucky today are a lamentable as he himself acknow ledged in his speech they were in 1907 and during a portion o 1908 During that period he said he had denounced the dis graceful conditions t and ther is no Kentuckian who loves his State he added who has con doned them The inspiration of the article he declared is easily discovered But a short time ago the so called independent tobacco buyers met in this city their purpos- being e to relieve themselves o legislation passed at the last ses sion of Congress and the who- lobject of the attack is to preju dice the mind of Congress of the President and the Department of Justice against the tobacc- societies in Kentucky in order that the socalled independents ahd their allies may cause whether justly or not procedings to be inaugurated by the Government against these societies under the Sherman antitrust law After giving some history of the events leading up to the pas sage by the Kentucky Legisla ture of the statute allowing the farmers to pool their crops Mr Bradley asserted that tfthe trusts and not the night riders are re sponsiblefor all the crirnes com mitted within the borders of the State in connection with the to bacco troubles AyiThe Dog Tax Law It is to de hoped that the Leg islature will make some amend ment to the present dog law which is manifestly defective Under the present law every dog is subject to a tax of one dollar which is to be placed in a fund to indemnify persons having sheep killed by dogs but there is un just discrimination in the law between solvent and persons for before a person having sheep killed can recover from such fund he is required to make affidavit that he does not know whose dog caused the dam age or if known that he could not collect same from the owner f the dog on execution being required to collect off the owner of the dog if he is solvent This means in many cases that a man who pays his taxes receives nothing for his damage as he would not sue his neighbor for many times the amount ofdam age and it is unjust that a sol vent man who pays his taxes on his dog is required to be respon sible for the damage he doe when an insolvent one who possi bly does not even pay dog tax is not respoiisihleS p r in gfi eld NewsLeader je The Lincoln Memorial Institute has filed articles of

million dollars and is un able to meet its abligation or even pay its legislators and the state government contemplating a bond issue it is said that Commissioner of Agriculture Rankin will ask for an appropriation of 200000 to improve the State Fairgrounds We never believed in the military supplanting the civil law but if this body is fool ish enough to make such an ap propriation we hope Governor Willson will call out my soldiers and disperse the assembly at the point of the bayonet The best thing that could be done would be to withdraw the 15 000 a year already appi opriated for the purposes

give them all to me except one Later in the trick I produce a rabbit from a box and tied round its neck is a card with a piece missing It Isthen found that the piece which the member of the audience holds exactly fits and completes the second card OnI this particular occasion I allowed thc rabbit to remain in the box too long and when I produced him found that he had chewed the card round his neck to bits Needless to say the laughter when the audience grasped the trick the animal had played on me was loud and long As Walter Saw It Walter aged seven Is a wise son who knows not only his own father but his own mother likewise Now Walter said the teacher if our father could do a piece of work in the hour and your mother could also do it in one hour how long would it take both of them to do

except it abide in the vine Just think of the wonderful gift that God has give us all So let us build up our Sunday Scholandtrain up the younger ones to prepare to make their future life a pleasant work for God The building up of Sunday a Schools is said to be adapted to its intended use and will add to the efficiency of our church Sunday School is for religious intructions in connection with the Jewish synagogues and also it among the early Christians But the credit of founding the modern system of Sunday School belongs to Robert Raikes The Sundayschool has been blessed of God with such a far reaching influence in the redemption of millions of individuals in the ethical development of our National life and in strengthening aggressive Christianity throughout the world The glory of life comes in through its duties done rather than from its prize won Let our SundaySchool take on new life and let many new pnes be formed to the end that our young people may be benefited and prepared for better service in the church Lula Holt a Selecting Your Seed Corn It is not too earlyto commence thinking about and talking about our seedcorn for next springs planting Unfavorable weather conditions are reported tot have greatly impaired the germinating qualities of a large part of the usualIson in selecting seed corn Other wise many farmers may find that their labor and expense of pre paring and seeding the land is practically wasted because of failure of large part of seed to germinateThe Harvester Company Chicago through their army of traveling men and inIformation letter just received from this feompany they say AWe are informed that in many districts while the corn was still in the field late and protracted wind and rain storms were prevalent over the corn belt injuringthe ears more or less It is belived that such un favorable conditions would great ly lessen the germinating power of the kernel if used as seed corn in fact as many of the farmers pick their seed corn from the best ears on the stalks standing in the field it looks as thou h m nyof th imightieither entirely without seed corn or obliged to use a very inferior kind i jUX Vv 7 c r l a 1Janets Way of Growing Young

Boiling and Freezing Watep at the Same Time The possibility of boiling and freez ing water at the same time in the laboratory is one of the most interesting developments of modern scIence The temperature at which water boils depends simply on the air pressure above its surface at the time If there is high pressure the water has to be made a good deal hotter to boil than at low pressure On mountains where the air pressure is a good deal lower than at sea level watei boils easily at low temperature In cooking vegetables that require a certain degree of heat and where the water boils before that degree is reach ed the vegetables will not get done They consequently have to be put into a closed boilerso that the generated steam will create enough pressure for the water to boil at or beyond the re quired temperature In the experi mental proof of this fact water is placed ina vessel and the air ex hausted from above the surface of the water As the process of pumping goes on the water will violently boil the steam congealing on the sidesof the exhaust vesselIf the pumping is continued long enough and the outside is cooled below the freezing point of water the water will continue to boil and bubble till it is frozen into a snowy mass of ice This fact is also made use qf in tak ing a rough test of the height ofa mountain Ordinarily at sea level where the pressure is about thirty inches of mercury water boils at 212 degrees F Now if it is noticed that at a certain place it boils at a few degrees lower the height of that place can be easily ascertained by com parison with a table made out for this purpose In general for every degree the boiling takes place under 212 a height of about 500 feet is counted Of course these principles do not ap ply to water alone but are characteristic of all liquids New York Tribune FISH LQCOWlOTION 4The Nature and Functions of the So Called Air Bladders Leaning over the parapet of some old stone breakwater or pier head and watching the fish playing about in the clear green depths below perhaps the last thought which is likely to occur to any of us is that we are looking on at a really astonishing thing That a fish is able to propel itself through the Water in any desired direction is in no changeiinstantlyI beIable at will to vary its weight in rela tion to the water it displaces When it sinks to the bottom it must have sud denly rendered itself heavier than the medium it inhabits each time it rises to the surface like a released cork head first tail pointing almost vertical ly downward it must not only have somethingIits tail The mystery for such it undoubtedly is on a casual survey says the London Chronicle resolves itself inIfishes By this contrivance all these intricate movements of the fish are abouti however contains not air as is commonly supposed but gas which is discharged or regenerated by certain organs of the fish according to moveIThus the fish is able to swim level or by altering its center of gravity to raise or lower either head or tail at will Services of Sheep ISingular part of India sheep are put to a use uuthought of in Euro pean or American countries They are made to serve as beasts of burden The mountain paths along the foothills of the Himalayas dire so precipitous that the sheep more sure footed than larger beasts are preferred as burden isssheep are driven from village to village with the wool still growing and in each town the farmer shears as much wool as he can sell there and loads the sheep with the grain which he receives in exchange After the flock has been sheared he turns it homeward each sheep having on its bath a small bag containing the pur chased grain- Economy Mrs BlockleyJohn do you know that Royal Worcester vase I bought yesterday

in a garden at first for greens and then for seed later The seed may be sown in the fall if an early crop is desired but if not then spring sowing will do but it will rake the crop later coming into

There are two varieties white and black fo greens we prefer the white but for seed to how for winter us the black as it is much the stronger A few of the strongest and earliest stalks should be al

is the question Shall we continue to fill thej pockets of the meat producers or the meat packers with our doub loons that is the question which today in this great Republic of ours transcends all others in importance We are a meateating Nation We inherited our meat eating habits from our ancestors Away back in the early days of the An gloSaxon race the eating of meat was a custom and a habit We can not depart from the habits and customs of our pro genitorsBut pork packers arid the beef factories have put the price of meats almost beyond our reach and what are to do Shall we bear the ills we have or fly to others we know not of Or to a vegetarian diet Willinotthe meat producers Millions o us insist we will not eat meat and that through our failure t patronize the meat merchants re lief in the shape of lower prices wjll come The packers deny it They say we can not do without meat inprolduction prices They say that they must utilize every part of the hog arid the sheep and the steer in order to come out even BYjandent generation will not be here t worry about it Those who come later may have more trouble They may not be able to have meat at all So the world will wag on Some will eat meat and some will not Some will imagine that the trusts are responsible and some will not As forus we shalleat all we can get and all that is good for us The rest can do as they like They can boycott meat or not as best suit them The Size of iti The editor of a newspaper is often accused of leaving out cer tain items of news purely because of a dislike of the person to be mentioned or from

great many recent inquiries seeking our views as to the most profitable variety- of tobacco to grow These inquiries have come both from farmers who have heretofore been engaged in tobacc-o and from those who live jn toIintroduceexpression to some t at- mayesust those who are trying l n c r to determine as to what variety of tobacco promises the best rel snIts to the growers The time of year is close at hand when the farmers who in- tD tend growing tobacco this year must decide upon the variety to be grown This decision should be made on the basis ot the pro bable best returns for the labor and expense of producing the cropThe crop of Burley grown last year was an unusually large one and a test of the wants of the trade for this variety of tabacco A large proportion of the 1909 Burley crop has been maketed and an unusally large proportion of that which has been sold has gone into the hands of the man ufacturersthus demonstrating that the values which have been obtained have not been created by speculative demand but rfPIIresent prices which the facturers could afford to pay andI were willing to pay for the ley crop This condition of itself offers great inducement for the production of Burley this II year as the prices now current are based upon values at which the tobacco may go into cdnsump tion and not upon prices created by speculation and dependent upI on future developments for justii fication II The farmers who raised Burley tobacco last year have been haveian advancing market as the sea son advanced The conditions have been such that values have been renumeratiVe to growers of Burley tobacco no matter whether they elected to sell at home or patronize the loose action mark ets or to continue to prize their tobacco in hogsheads and ship to the old established auction markets AJarge amount of Burley to IiIin sections not heretofore grow ling Burley Some of this tobac co came from the very center and heart ofsections which have for enI fired tobacco for export purposes Some of it has come from the section producing what is known as the onesucker variety of tobacco Some of it has come from the Counties producing w bat is known as Green River tobacco Some of it has come heretoforeIwe have received Burley tobacco of good quality and whichsold at thte grower very much better returns than could have been obtained by growing any other variety of tobaccoThe adaptability of Burley tobacco for different soils and climate has been fully demon strated and its growth has been a great success in localities here toFore producing only dark types and inactions not hereto fore supposed to be adopted to the growth of any variety of to baccoThe crop of tobacco grown in our state last year other than Burley was not an unusually large one The crop of Burley was unprecedentedly large yet values for Burley have been un usually high while values fo other types have experienced no such improvement but to the contrary prices in some sections

larger than the yield per acre of other varieties grown in our state The price for Bur ley tobacco is higher than that o any othe variety The cost o production of Burley tobacco is not greater than the expense at tend other varieties Burley tc baccp may be marketed to ad vantage earlier than other var ieties as there is a demand for this variety of tobacco in winter order by the manufacturer direct and it need not be redried as other varieties must be to estab lish its consumptive value The net average price to the farmers who raise Burley to wemeran price at e tobacco was ready for

contained a jarge proportion of common to bacco and quite a large amount 1of tobacco grown and handled by- those not experienced in tobacco growing yet the net average price per hundred to all classes of growers and including the to bacco from all sections we are fully satisfied is not less than the t price we have indicated of 1300 hundredWe d in saying that the average net price for the 1909 crop to the farmers who raised all other varietiesof tocac co in our state is not in excess r of 700 per hunderd 4 The Louisville Tobacco Ware house Company has a supply of genuine Rurley tobacco seed on
