Twains Father Built During the early part of the seventies I subscribed for the book entitled The Innocence Abroad the first one to give the author national notoriely after which Mark Twain was consider the worlds greatest humorist and one of its ablest Writers It was more from a desire to please the agent than to own the book that I subscribed but after it was received I found the description given of Palestine and all those ancient cities of the old world intensely interesting At that time Isaac S Renneau an aged minister of the Christian Church who lived seven miles south of Albany Ky was preaching monthly for the congregation in Rockhouse Bottom on Cumberland river where we then lived Being a man noted for his scholarship Bible knowledge and general information- he was considered quite an oracle in all the country about where he Jived In fact he seemed to know everything that I didnt know which of course was very little but so much that I determined to teach him something pertaining to the old world on his next visit to the Bottom and when he came lengthytof things in Palestine Damascus and several other ancient cities 1 also gave him a brief account of this wonderful writer who had stet sprang up in the west of whom I fel sure he had not heard After giving very respectful hearing he inquired wh Mark Twain was Hes Mark Twain 1r said I He then informed me that his real name was Samuel L Clemens and that during the year 1835 in which John M Clemens Mark Twains father moved from Tennessee to Florida Mo he boarded at his house near the three schoofone month previous to that time he had received a letter from Twains mother then gave a kind of biography of the Clemens and Lampton families Of course I stood corrected and this was my last attempt at educating Isaac T Renneau who I still believe knew more than any man with whom 1 hav been acquainted I may give an ac count of this house that Clemens built soon as I had the misfortune to spend

MysteriesSolved How Inspector Byrnes who recently died in New York es tablished the famous dead line for crooks and how he instituted tfessions degree in worming con from suspected crimi nals is told interestingly in an article in the New York Herald of Sunday The dramatic way in which he solved two murders is told also in the following article The metropolis teemed with Sriminals chie E among whom were tthose aristocrats of theft the bank burglars The safes of those days were formidable enough in appearance but they lacked the numerous contrivances and checks of the present day The city was not so well lighted as it now is and the police force was inconsiderable as compared with the army which is now on guard The ferries were infest ed by bunco men green goods operators and the like andmany were on terms of easy familiarity with small politicians Wall street was alive with sneak thieves and burglars seeking plunder while Maiden lane was periodically piliaged of plate and jewels Inspector Byrnes first estab lished a branch of the Detective Bureau in a little room in a Wall street building paying the rent out of his own pocket He then through General Brayten Ives asked that the Stock Exchange give quarters for his men under its roof which was accordingly done The arrangement was most satisfactory for by wire practically every bank or important brokers office in the district was connected with the bureau In this connection the order was given by the inspector that any man with a criminal record seen south of Maiden lane should be arrested and the instructions were so literally carried out that the Dead Line provedan effectual barriej In Wall street he met Jay Gould who laid the foundation of his The fortuneI bureau in Mulberry street brought a galaxy of detective talent trained after the manner of Byrnes Those were the days when such men as inspectors Schmittberger and McLauglin and many others were winning their records r The criminal classes were ruled Lpartly by fear partly by intima tions of leniency for information given They were afraid of the K inspector for he had a faculty of- It r keeping watch over all their t movements and often he was in formed of their secret councils a Y He knew where they all belong ed their hates and their attachment and with a skill which probably has never been equalled againstl43h anotherThe burglar was practi I lcallY exterminated in his day j The sawdust men the green goods manipulators and the genI try who lived by confidence andI who had been working boldly were driven to cover and the r leaders were exiled t The rule of the inspector was harsh and absolute and so effect tiye to the last degree The a crooks were arrested on sight irrespective of whether the mag 2 istrates held them or not i Out of this method grew third degree which was in r Ity the use of phycholcgy r most practical kind Its first ap I y st J r plication by the inspector was in solving the mystery of the kill ing of Louis Hanier who kept a French wine shop in West Twentysixth street He was shot in 1882 at the head of the stairs on which he was decend ing to the lower floor which had been wrecked by a band of ruffians The inspector enlisted the services of a woman to keep track of Michael E McGloin one of a band of young desperadoes known as the Seventh Avenue Gang and he also obtained in formation concerning three Others whom he believed to be implicated All the quartet were so taken that no one knew of the others arrest The inspector had McGloin taken into his private room and so placed the chairs that the prisoner would be looking out of the window into the court yard As the inspector and he were talking a man entered the room and laid down on the desk the pistol with which the French innkeeper had been killed The inspector looked at it in a casual way referred to it as the weapon which had been used by the mur derers and asked McGloin if he hadever seen it before The prisoner although the sight of the weapon had un nerved him tried to keep up an air of concern although the inspector already had caught the expression of momentary dismay on his face Then calmly smok ing a cigar the chief of detec tives referred in a matter of fact way to three men all of whom had seen the murder for they had said so Then in the court yard walk policemenimarching first one and then another of McGloins intimates The prisoner fell on his knees before the inspector and confess ed that he and others had gone to wreck the saloon because its proprietor refused to be taken in by a flim flam game and that he had fired on him intending only exIIwere Tactics still more dramatic were employed in the case of Unger suspected of killing dismembering his andI named Bohles and of then ship ping his body from Brooklyn to Baltimore Unger was taken to police headquarters where he was put casually into a cell which had been furnished with the blood stained appointments of the room in which the murder had been committed He fell to the floor from the stained bed on which he had been forced to sit confessed the crime Many a time was the third de gree worked in the time of In spector Byrnes its chief factor being the conscience of the man played upon by the shrewd andI forceful mind of the master tsctive Fiction and the drama since have made use of the third degree as a theme but to the inspector it was regarded as a means to an end and in his it was the most handsI weaponsIA Regular Tom Boy was Susieclimbing trees and fend jumping ditches whitling always getI tingr scratches cuts

From Washington By Tavenner News Correspondance The Democrats assisted ty a handful of fighting progressive Republicans have forced the ad ministration to abandon some of the worst o f the corporation serving clauses placed in the railroadregulation bill by attor ney General Wickersham Wickersham framed this bill after a conference with six rail road presidents Wall street knew long in advance of the pub lic appearance of the bill that it would be so drawn as to annul the Sherman antitrust lawR- ailroad interests bought and sold stock on the strength o f their advanced information Had the railroad regulation bill become a law as prepared b y Wickersham it would have prac tically destroyed all that has been accomplished in the last twenty years t o give the government some measure of control over the railroads of the country No Attorney General of the United States has ever been re vealed in just the position Mr Wickersham now occupies Instead of having drawn a bill that would tend to place greater safeguards about the rights of the people of the United States as might naturally be expected from a public officer who is re ceiving a salary on the assump tion that he is giving such pro tection to the people Wicker sham has been charged on the floor of the Senate with having attempted to take from the masses even such inadequate safeguards as they now enjoy while at the same time giving the corporate interests the right to merge and do other things that the Sherman law has for bidden them from doing At the time of Wickershams appointment it was asserted that he had been selected by Presi dent in deference to the wishes of the corporations of the coun try who had spent money and coerced workingmen to vote the Republican ticket and who demanded as compensation for this service the privilege of naming the Attorney General The unusual interest of spec ial privilege in this office may be realized at full value when it is understood that the Attorney Generai is in absolute charge of the prosecuting machinery of the r governmentWhether Wickershams a p pointment really was the result of a preelection arrangement or not the trusts have had no oc casion to be dissatisfied with the Presidents selection Whenever the rights of the people and special privilege come into conflict M r Wickersham decides favorably to the corporate inter ests and against the people This is what the records of his office showPresident Taft has reached the conclusion the progressivness are bad bad men He complains they visit him at the White House and assure him of their respect and well swishes and then go to the Capi tol and vote against his railroad regulation bill Why do you act this way a progressive Republican was ask ed Do you not respect the- President of the United States respect the President both personally and officially was the reply ClBut I have even more respect for the welfare of 90000000 people of this coun try The President sends the Congress a railroad regulation bill which the best authorities say absolutely annuls the Sher man antitrust law which is the only safeguard the people now have against the combining of the big railroads Along with this bill comes the ultimatum that our vote on the measure will be considered a test of our Republi canism Weare desirous of showing all proper respect for the President but as between serving our conscience o r the President we are put t o the painful necessity o f forsaking the President temporarily and of voting against his railroad bill The recently reformed House Committee on Rules is proving to be as secure a catacomb for pro posed legislation antagonized by the special interests as was the old Rules committee of which Speaker Cannon was chairman Not a single resolution which might adversely affect unlawful combinations such as the sugar trust has been reported favorably by the new committee Can non dominates the reformed body just as effectively as he did the old Rules committee So far as practical results are concerned it is difficult to see what the com mon people gained by the en larging of the committee and the elimination of the Speaker Program Program of the

Tie Two Sinners She was a woman worn and thin who the world condemned for a single thing They cast her out of the kings highway and passed her by as they went to pray He was a man and more to blame But the world spared him a breath of shame Beneath his feet he saw her lieI but he raised his head and passed her by They were the people who went to pray at the temple of God on the Holy day They scorned the woman forgave the men twas ever thus since the world began Time passed on the woman died on a cross ofI shame she was crucified The world was stern and wouldnot yield and they buried her in theI potters field The man died and they buried him in a casket of cloth with a silver brim and said as they turned away We have buried a noble man today Two mortals knocked at heavens gate stood face to face to inquire their fate He carried a passport with an earthly sign but see a pardon from love divine Of ye who judge twixt virture and vice which think ye entered paradise Not he whom the world had said would win for the woman was ushered in ExIPotatoes are an excellent teed for all kinds of hogs and when they are as cheap as they are this year in some localities they may be fed with profit Tests of their feeding value for fatten ing hogs have shown on the average that 4 or 5 pounds of potatoes equals 1 pound of corn Brood sows do well on potatoes either before or after farrowing For them as for fattening hogs or pigs it is best to boil the potatoes and feed some grain along with them About 20 pounds of grain to a bushel of potatoes makes a combination that appears to satisfy the appetites of the hogs and produces excellent results The cooked potatoes are mashed and mixed with whatever ground grain or shorts that is fed One should avoid making the slop very thin or the hogs will be forced to take in more water than they naturally would drink This would not affect them seriously but it is not desirable The potatoes are especially beneficial for brood sows because of their bulk and their mildly laxative effect tMflIi i ri t f L N Time Card In effect Monday Dec 31 1908 SOUTH BOUND DRAIN Lv LOUISVILLE AK LEBANON No 27700 am 942am No 2315am 1004 am No 79505 pm 740pm

Roosevelt Not an Insurgent The latest political news is that Theodore Roosevelt is not an insurgent and is and endorser of the Taft Administration and that he approves Taft as a second term candidate- If this is true it meaus nothing more than that Theodore Roose velts sermons are slush and that his sentiments are those of Al drich of Cannon of Payne and of the other machine Republicans Is this true We cheerfully confess ignorance But it is not wholly improbable- In office Mr Roosevelt was as thoroughgoing a stand patter as Mr Aldrich He preached mor practicedIthe public to witness his virtue and he call on the late Edward H Harriman to read his mes sage to Congress and perhaps to edit it His public utterances all reduced themselves to the statement I am the most right eous man in politicsHis pri vate policy was expressed in his statement to a railroad kind which had reference to a politi cal deal and which was you and I are practical men But granting thatMr Roose velt is nothing more than a poli tical charlatan which he would be amply proven to be if he should come back and endorse the Republican gang despite the record made since his departure Is the doughty Colonel

that enables the classes the interests to unjustly collect millions from the earnings of the great body of people There is no justice in taxing the working people on everything the use to enable the rich to become richer and to maintain wild and reckless extravagance and pomp l in Washington The present sit uation comes largely from Re publican Senators and Congress men who assert that a change i the policy of the party is necessary for the welfare of the peo pie They made with the Dem ocrats an ineffective fight against the present high tariff law They are in open rebellion against the autocratic power vested in the Speaker and the war is waged against Connonism which is cer- taIn to win in the next Congress The President seeking the will of both sides must soon u cover and openly and boldly e pouse the cause of the people live up with the standpatters Cannonism and wealth He can not reconcile nor much longer keep himself on neutral ground in the crisis through which his party is passing Not only many of the able leaders of his party are out of harmony with solidiarity at the expense justice but a large and increas ing number of the voters at against a high tax on the
