disaster like in extent to what has visited all the northern astJ ern and western sections within the past week Continuous rains f caused all the streams to over flow their banks and to rush over villages and farms leaving waste destruction of property and loss of life in its wake This great aggregation pouring into the Seine river was more than its capacity to carry off and immense damage resulted along its course Water rose to unheardof stages at Paris doing millions of dollars of damage to property and rendering thous ands of people homeless That is built largely over the catJ

I Receipts of cattle for 1909 v were somewhat in excess of those of 1908 but a broader beef market f has made a better trade There is much interest in the fu iture of the market now but lit tIe knowledge as to one of the L main factors in itthe number of cattle on feed Says National Stockman From many points come reports as a serious reduc tion in the feeding of cattle while very few sections admit an increase It is hard to credit all reports of reduced feeding in view of the number of feeder cattle that have gone from graz ing sections and markets to feeds ing sections Certainly many r Ipeople are feeding cattle or feed would be cheaper One thing quite noticeable now is the trend toward short feeding Cattle men of the corn belts asserts thati a large proportion of the inkIparatively little fed for spring If they are correct the man whei gets cattle ready for the spring trade ought to hit it right The Greatest Sinners U An exchange takes the following slam at such metropolitan newspapers as take pleasure in poking fun at country papers for chronicling the doings of the neighborhood The large city dailies take a pokingbfun at the country press for the way they detail the doings of people living in their home towns But it is doubtful if any local paper ever gushed or used as many superlatives in its description of home people and home doings as some of the Chicago papers did over the recent chari ty ball in that city For days their columns were filled with ex itravagant language regarding the l event Pictures of some of its promotes appeared every day One lady the initials of whose given name and surname make an easy alteration enjoyed the distipction of having hers ap pear several days in succession One day it was full face another irtprofllestill another quarter ti P JC 7 if i face again half length But I there it was until it fairly haunted the reader The day following the ball the reporters outdid themselves in fulsome and descriptive language and the names of all who danced were arranged in alphabetical order listed and cata logued for the delectation of theI public And these are the paf pers that seek to ridicule the rural press for their write up of local events and personals As to the ball itself and itst promoters and participants while one dislikes to question the motives of others it is a query whether it was arranged mainly for personal display or for sweet charitys sake Certainly if the principal idea was to help theI poor and give them good Christ ymssprominent people at the ball any one of whom could have

Dr Gorgas doctrine that with proper care of themselves white folks can live and thrive in tro pical countries The white man has been long enough in these islands to have proved the de generacy of a

rates from one dollar to 150 beginningS January 1 This raise has been made necessary by the increased cost of living and there is no alternative left the publisher un he is wIlling to continue issuing a paper at bare cost or a loss The time has passed when a paper can be profitably pub lished for one dollar a year and glory of it is relegated far to the rear when the monthly bills are bought or Isent in A farmer used to bring from four to six bushels of corn to town to pay for a years subscription to his home paper at one dollar a year he can bring a little mere than two bushels and pay for a ear at 150 Ham that used to cost the editor 10 and 12 cents a pound now costs 20 and 25 cents Not only that the editors cost of publishing has nearly doubled that he is really four times worse off in some respects than formerly These are the conditions which have gradually added to the newspaper mans burden it can no longer be borne Would any sane farmer keep a working for one dollar a ay and throw in his work if it cost one dollar to feed the team We hardly think so unless times were harder than they are now Every fairminded reader knows that these conditions have been brought about through no fault of the publishers and will concede him the right to a profit on his labor the same as the mer chant on his goods or the farmer on his crops In Agreed Ij According to President Taft the postal deficit was 17000000 This deficit says the president is due to the insufficient matIterfree delivery system cc The president is correct says the railroad magnate who receives from the government 800 per cent more per pound for hauling the mails than he charger for hauling express The president is correct says the manager of the express company who draws a dividend of 300 per cent on his stock and would draw more if the periodi cal postage rates were higher The president is correct says the government official whose department sends millions of pounds of matter through the mails free of charge So far as we have heard however these are about the only people who agree with the presi dents findings State Bank Examiners No doubt of the importance of the county unit bill but there are other matters now before the Legislature and to come before it of far greater importance ofIthe constitutional amendment in keeping with the recommenda tions of the tax commission is no an amendment to be drawnin day nor to be disposed of in a week The question oft1ie finan cial condition o f the common wealth is o f vital importance So are measures affecting the cities and the farming districts of the State with the act pro viding for bank examiners of the utmost importance arid second only to the legislation to be con l I fN tr r f sidered respecting schools and good roads Not one of the measures cited would bring about bitterness even though the views on them should be of the widest possible divergence and time is an element to be considered in a session limited to sixty legislative days The bill providing for the appointment of four bank examiners may find some difficulty in the settlement of the question whether they should be named by the Governor or made a bu reau in the office of the Secreta ry of State But the difficulty is of as nothing in comparison with the ability which should be de manded of the appointeescoupled with an integrity that would con vince the people of Kentucky and especially the savings bank depositors that the examinations would be made with but one end is depos1itors a The examinations should go not only to the financial condition of the institution examined but to the fact of directors who would direct or to the absence of thei fact with the act providing table and appropriate penalties for neglect of duty of officers or directors I tis not probable that the power o f appointment will be vested in the Governor It maybe the Legislature will name thed four The important thing is in the naming of the right men for the place There is no politics the question of safety of depositors and the Legislature can find four good men as readily as the Governor whether the four are to constitute a new department of the state

Buttered Bread With His Thumb Cats meat is the only survival of way of serving meat that prevailed in this country before the introduction of forks for it was the custom in mediaeval tUnes to serve roast meat on a spit and to pass it around the table for each guest to cut off what he liked a method that did not allow one person only to secure the carvers tit bits In France one still finds chicken livers and bacon served on small spits and to the Britisher it always suggests at first sight the food of the domestic cat It is probable that many people continued to prefer fingers to table
