Martin My Dear Friend 1 shall bring you on Monday a play In five acts shall need Mile Georges Mme Dorval Bocage Lock roy Provost and five new scenes This extravagance would alarm the director who would put off the pro duction of the play till better days Then Victor Hugo would appear and shyly draw a manuscript out of b pocket He would agree to everythiro Tile stock company would play his piece admirably since all he wanted was a goqd ensemble no new decora tions would be needed nor any change at all So the piece would be reid and as the roles were distributed Hugo would say musingly Difu how line Freder ick would be in that part That is true Horel would murmur and a few days after he would announce that Frederick was engaged Hugo would then remonstrate that this destroyed the equipoise of the cast and Raucourt Laferriere and Mile Georges would be engaged Then Hugo would attack the stage setting Old scenes that the public had tired of were almdst an Insult to these great artists If Horel showed reluctance at this Hugo would threaten to withdraw his piece And so the game would go on till little by little Hugo had obtained ev erything he wanted even to the changing of

and is about 300 miles long and 100 broad consisting of sandy dunes or ridges Its want of trees except alo the creeks gives the country a sterile ap pvararice These ridges were probably formed by the joint effect of winds and a gradually retiring sea Accord lug Ao Captain Sturt these waters were gradunHylost by evaporation or carried to some undiscovered sea The only vegetation growing scantily is

twentyfive years in pasturing horses on alfalfa results have convinced me that it produces more bone muscle and blood in horses in less time than any othey pasturage with which I am acquainted But I believe it profitable in raising the best horses to use also a moderate grain ration to stimulate rapid growth and early development my horses however have shown no ill effect from pasturing on alfalfa without grain or other feedand I have found much pro lificacy maturing animals equal for service to any reared other wise I have raised threeyear olds grown on alfalfa and a light grain ration to exceed a ton in goodfusing alfalfa as a horse pusture amuch more economical method ofraising horses than any other ohurns The Book of A- lfilfa t Much Talked ofMam =No former Kentuckian has been

go with meto the J centennial ceremonies at Concord in celebration of the battle of the minute men with the British troops a hundred 0Jenrs before We both hail special in Stations including passage from Bos ton but I said why bother to go to Boston when we could just as well take the train for Concord at the Cam if bridge station He equally decided that it would be absurd so we break fasted deliberately and then walked U I the station reasoning of many things as usual When the train stopped we found It packed inside and out People stood g dense on the platforms of the curs JT our startled eyes they seemed tu project from the windows and unless memory betrays me they lay strewn upon the roofs like brakemen slain at the post of duty We remounted the I fam woni steps of Porters station 4 and began exploring North Cambridge forborne means of transportation over land to Concord for we were that fur SOfl the rond by which the British went and came on the day of the battle The liverymen whom we appealed to received us some with compassion some with derisIon but in either mood convinced us that we could not have hired a cat to attempt our conveyance much less a horse or vehicle of any H description It was a raw windy day very un like the exceptionally hot April day when the routed redcoats pursued By I the Colonials fled panting back to Bos ton with their tongues hanging out like dogs but we could not take due comfort in the vision of their discom fiture We could almost envy them for they had at least got to Concord iA swift procession of coaches car i riages and buggies all going to Con cord us inert and helpless on the sidewalk In the peculiarly cold i mud of North Cambridge We began to wonder if we might not stop one of them and bribe it to take us 41 felt keenly the shame of defeat and the guilt of responsibility for our failure and when a gay party of stu dents came toward us on the top of a s tallyho luxuriantly empty inside we felt that our chance had come and our hjlast chance He said that if 1 would stop them and tell them who 1 was they would gladly perhaps proudly give us passage contended that if with his far vaster renown be would approach them our success would be assured While we stood lost in this contest of civilities the coach passed us with gay notes blown from the horns of the students and then Clemens started in pursuit encouraged with shouts from 1 the merry party who could not im igine who was trying to run them down to a rivalry of speed The un equal match could end onlYIpone way and am glad cannot recall what he said when he came hack to me Since then 1 have often wondered at the grief which would have Wrung those blithe young hearts If they could iihave known that they might have had iO the company of Mark

physician and with out satisfying himself that the poison was to be used for legiti mate purposes and with the d1foruse Attorney for Katzman cpnj tended that the words retail and legitimate purposes as used in sec 2630 of the Kentucky Statutes were tooindefinite and uncertain and therefore the statute is invalid The court held in an exhaustive opinion by Judge Carroll that the Ianguag e of the

read the news papers and we believe in in creasing our business because peopleFIthrough the newspaper at a greater distance in less time and iata more reasonable price than tin any other way because our newspaper advertising brings us greater returns for the least ex penditure than any other kind advertising of that we have done because when we write an ad we are not too stingy to pay lor placing it in the best possible medium or have it inserted so it is attractive because we know it is seen and read by every j member of the family to which the paper goes Electric Chair tThe old time
