ADAIRnt2e tTi Golden Tide cf Washington July 10 The beI c lief is expressed by the Treasury 1officials that the import move nient of gold from Europe will aproximate 40000000 by the Christmas season During the last fiscal year the United States was drained of coin and bullion the extent of more than 50to 000000 It was thought by the Government experts that the homeward flow of gold would not begin so early but that it would follow ordinary trade conditions later in the season It has been the observation of the Treasury experts that for eign continental banks gradually have been aiming to strengthen their gold reserves which proba bly accounts for the inquiries for the precious metal at London A great deal of the gold that went i gout of the country was due to natural trade operations Then a large amount was shipped to v the Argentine Republic That country negotiated a large loan in London some time ago and much of the gold coin was with drawn from New York because 4the foreign louses making the Kloan could secure better terms i there Donts For Churchmen f S tDont forget that pain isoften but the dregs of pleasure Dont fail to note that a pious friendPDont mix your ideas on duties with notions on revenue v Dont pray for a harvest of love when you have plantedno seeds of kindness Dont expect ever to be worth counting if you cannot sometimes c forget to count yourself Dont forget that saintliness and sanity are both a happy bal J ante between self and society Dont overlook the fact that in s retired places of helpfulness are found the door to heaven Dont fail to learn that noth yng will help you more than help ing a man when you do not want y to Dont make foolish estimate of yourself if you would avoid the greatest difficulty in winning the esteem of others Dont fail to observe that the man who wears his religion on1 his sleeve usually makes it mere ly a part of his cloak tv The Prese Responsible acrJ Jf The newspapers of the country Jare largely responsible for the interest manifested in prize fighting and for the financial success attending these brutal and debasing contests Before thefight between Johnson andI apersowere filled with pictures of the v pugilists their careers their ijrV figjiting qualities and everything else that ingenerous reporters could think up to excite public i interest The fact that nearly half of the population of the j l country was interested in the j outcome of the fistic battle at Y 4Beno tells a wonderful story of l 3he aty jcthe same lrtcateringit4tto a ra o a r r peoplewhot mattef a thought but for what i l ttrtgk read about in the Pr- nbeeai The co injured 1l 1 ra r half as much by the fight as it has been by publication 0f all its details If the newspapers would mould public opinion on things which elevate society instead of catering to those things which debase and lower it it is hard to estimate the value it would do society Next to encouraging crime or glossing over wrong doing about the worst thing the newspapers do is to and create an interest in prize fighting It is as low and de praving in its nature and effects as bull fighting in Mexico or the gladitorial arena in ancient RomeE Town News 1 It is a Mistake Many have the idea that any thing will sell if advertised strong enough This is a great mistake True a few sales might be made by advertising an abso lutely worthless article but it is only the article that is bought again and again that pays An exampleof the big success of a worthy article is the enormous sale that has grown up for Cas carets Candy Catharthic This wonderful record is the result of great merit successfully made known through persistent adver tising and the mouthtomouth recommendation given Cascarets by its friends and users Like all great successes trade pirates prey on the unsuspect ing public by marketing fake tablets similar in appearance to Cascarets Care should always be exercised in purchasing well advertised goods especially an article that has a national sale like Ca carets Do not allow a substitute to be palmed off on you Summary of July Crop Report The general average condition of crop growth in the United States on July 1st 1810 was about 51 per cent lower than on July 1st 1909 3J per cent lower than July 1st 108 and 3i per cent lower than the tenyear average condition on July 1st In the New England States con

fl i v s r i v i42r An Ear for the Falls It was Chelf Joseph of the Nez Perce tribe of Indians who remarked that whenever he was gliding gently with the current in his canoe he always kept listening for the falls It was wise in the red manand it is a very safe practice for the members of the other races to teo many situations in life For two years in the three great States of Ohio Indana and Kentucky the Democrats have been gliding with a curret that seemed to be all in their favor and in each State the party lead ers and the faithful loyal and and everhopeful rank and file of the party have been doing their level best to strengthen their or ganizations preparatory to state andnational victory- A victory in Inhiana would mean much not only to the Demo crats in Indiana but to the Democratic party of the Union A victory in Kentucky this year could not fail to have favorable effect in the campaign of 1912 A victory in Ohio this year for the Democrats would almost cer tainly forecast a national triumph in the next Presidential election The Democrats of these three important States have been mu tually helpful to each other and with the factional State and national disturbances in the Re publican ranks the party in each State has been elated with the prospect of victory Victory would mean control of the States in every branch sand control of many counties now in possession of the Republicans Victory would mean political honor and public preferment to thousands of Democrats who have been barred from positions by Republican majorities for nearly a generation Victory in these three States this year might mean a Demo cratic House of Representatives- in the next Congress probably a Democratic President in 1913 with Democrats controlling the National Administration and all that such control implies The Democrats of the entire country have had for two years past their hopes fixed upon the results of these States this year But few have been listening for the falls still fewer have been expecting the rocks and the rapids to endanger Democratic success and threaten Democratic safetyNevertheless there have been eddies in the current recenty that point to certain danger They have not been due to natural obstructions in the stream affairs but rather to artifici ally created ones As warnings toIThe party in each state is in the hands of capable helmsmen who will do well to follow their own charts and lights rather than to trust to the uncertain and perilous guidance of those not familiar with the wrters July Housekeeper theicountry

from all sources for the fiscal year end ing on June 30 1910 were about 181000 less than the receipts for the fiscal year ending on June 30 1909 This surprising condi tion was noted when the totals in all departments were added uP- in the office of Capt Ed Farley State Treasurer The receipts for the year 1909 were 6838 68009 while for 1910 thie receipts were 665759763 This is accounted for in part by the Auditors office by the statement that there is yet un collected as taxes on miscellane ous corporations about 50000 which should be credited to1910 and that many of the banks are also delinquent Then they say in 1909 the collection of 100000 from the Southern Pacific rail road swelled the total collections for that year beyond the normal I Homerilried peaches iand evap prated

Professor Surface says that it is now too late to cure trees which are dam aged but we can prevent the spread of this disease by spray ing with Bordeaux mixture Use three pounds of bluestone and four of lime in fifty gallons of water The germs of this disease live part of the year on red cedar trees and therefore the des truction of the red cedar trees near the orchard is one of the means of getting rid of the rust One of its necessary forms of ex istence is in the red cedar ap pIe as it is called which is the black knot often to be seen on the branches of this tree If there were no red cedar trees for carrying this necessary stage there would be no disease of this kind Basil The school at this place win begin the Ilth taught by Mrs Hallie Picketfc This is hrthitd term and we hope

With BilL A good old preacher who lives a small town in Indiana received an invitation a few days to travel several miles into he country for the purpose of performing a marriage service Being too feeble to go on foot and having no funds with which to hire a conveyance the rever gentleman was somewhat perplexed until he happened to think of Bill Haines the proprietor of the local livery stable He called on Bill and mentioned the fact that a young man and a air maiden were waiting far from the maddening throng to be joined in the holy bonds of wedlock and Bill being a man of keen perceptions replied I allow youd like to get a horse and buggy to take you out there I had an idea that it would be a fine thing if you could helpj me hi that way Ill tell you what Ill do William If you IIIllIjAllrightago The parson was accordingly provided with a horse and buggy and he drove away When he got back covered with dust and considerably fatigued he climbed out of the buggy and handing the reins to Bil1 Haines saidh j William I thank you five hundred times t i I thought you was gom to divide with me Bill answered I- Famdoing so When I had pronounced them man and wife groom offered me a

July Because one hundred and thirtyfour years ago The Declaration of Independence was passed which declared our inde pendence for Great Britain disputetNo For six long years of war Jone having already heen fought j our forefathers were struggling against her Mother Country who wanted to keep us dependent and under her control Just think of England declar ring we didnt even have the right to make a horse shoe nail with coloniesIof recent wars and yet not repre sented just slaves you see and what American can bear this Yes the Revolutionary war was 1tobe the decision although there were only thirteen colonies yet I imagine the blood of freedom was running through every citi I zen s veins to put their shoulder4y to the wheel and fight till death or freedom cSome may think it was wrong to war against England but how else was it to be decided wereAf backed bv the great God of Heaven for often before entering a battle the commander would have prayer with his sot Biers During the winter of 177778 greataf American commander was quartered at the house of Isaac Potts One dayMr Potts was on his way Ma ctekiiearbyhelieard a voice of prer and approaching dll seed General Wa bing tiP his knee MsT cheeky wet i t2 t f with tears on returning to the house and relating the incident to his wife he said If theres any one to whom the Lord will listen it is George Washington and under such a commander our Independence is sure We sometimes hear people speak of their hardships of to day but they are trifles compared to the one the soldiers had to contendwith during this war during the winter of 177778 was said to be the hardest of the war The men were encamped in cold comfortless huts with very lit tle food or clothing and often barefooted left their tracks in bloodon the frozen ground Sick ness followed with no comforts or medicine deathwas the only relief yet amid all this the fires of patriotism burned brightly Washington still felt his cause was just and inspired his soldiers by his faith Now cant you imagine the joy of every heart when the struggle was all over and how every one should rejoice today of then freedom At last on the 19th of iOctober 1781 the British army surrendered 7000 men All the hardships of past were forgotten at the thought that America was free Many wept for joy and some were speechless with delight Congress met early after the de cission then marched to the church to return thanks to Al mighty God for our independence And why should we hot today return the same thanks and ever be true to our country which can boast of being one of the grandest nations on the globe and its all due to our independence declared one hundred and thirtyfour years ago Bertha H Coomer Short Half Million The work of the experts on the books of the Fidelity

who never had much faith in banks He read now and then of bank defalcations He did not continue his investigation to find out anything about the effect or methods by which defalcations are made good He did not stop to consider how small a proportion of the money put in bank for safekeeping is ever lost He determined simply because of what he read now and then that he was a better custodian of his money than the doubly locked vaults of any bank Recently it is said that determining to visit some friends in St Louis he carried his money with him carefully concealed in a small sack It amounted to 3250 Upon his return home he found that some how he had separated himself from his moaey and he couldnot tell just how or where or when His money is gone the robber is unknown and there is no possi bility of recovery He has been enucated into a better apprecia tion of the bank but the lesson cost him 3250 Louisville Post Binders and Needed Harness Horses are pla ng mankind daily under
