Section ,1 On National Issues. We, the Democrats of Kentucky, in delegate convention duly assembled and held in the city of Louisville, Kentucky, on August 15, 1911, do hereby pledge anew our faith in and devotion to the time honored and eternal principles of our party first promulgated in the Declaration in successive platforms of the party, and we especially reaffirm our faith in and devotion to the national Democratic platform adopted at Denver, Colorado, in the year 1908. Sec. 2 We denounce the Republican party and the, present Republican President, for their flagrant and willful betrayal of the trust reposed in them by the American people and call attention especially to the fact that they have willfully disregarded their promises to the effect that they would revise downward the unjust tariff system and would relieve the masses of the people of the heavy burdens of unjust and unnecessary taxation. On the contrary the Republicans enacted the odious Payne-Aldrictariff law of 1909, pronounced by Mr. Taft to be "the best Republican tariff law ever passed," which law was a gross breach of the promises of the Republican President and his political party. This tariff law, in order to enrich a few, increased the burdens of the many, and authorized those favored few not only to continue, but to increase, their robbery of the many under the forms of law. Sec. 3 We point with pride to. and heartily indorse the patriotic record made by the present Democratic members of Congress and Democratic Senators, in their efforts over determined Republican opposition to, in good faith, redeem the promises of the Democratic party to repeal unjust an oppressive Republican laws, and to enact wis3 aai for the benefit of the great masses of the people we invite ail to contrast the aim and record of the in the House and Senate of the present session of Congress with the aims arid record of the Republicans and especially with the Republican session of 1909 which enacted the Payne Aldrich tariff law. We especially indorse the record of our Democratic Congressmen and Senator from Kentucky for their fidelity In keeping the promises of their party and representing the people and not the interestests, and we denounce the record of the Republican Congressmen and Senator from Kentucky, because they have represented not the people, nor have they sought to relieve their burdens, but have represented the privileged, protected interests of the country. Sec. 4 On State Issues. Kentucky is, and of a fight ought to be, a Democratic State, and the Democratic party in appealing for the support of the electorate of the State eagerly invites an intelligent comparison of the records it has made with those made by its political adversary during the temporary oc- -j casions it has controlled the affairs of the State. As against the Republican record in Kentucky of assasination, bloodshed and disregard of law, we present the Democratic picture of peace, scrupulous regard for human life and a strict observance of. and respect for law; as against an empty treasury and rejection and shaving of honest demands against the State, we present a picture of a magnificent State Capitol erected and paid for without any extra tax, and every just claim against the State promptly met and paid in full; as against platform pledges and promises broken and made to be broken, we present a record of all pledges and promises faithfully kept; as against hypocrisy, demagogy and incompetency we present a record of sincerity, fidelity, competency and statesmanship We denounce the action of the Republican Governor for his partisan and unjust action in pardoning the men indicted for participation in the assassination of William Goebel, tne Governor of our State, and we assert that those pardons were granted for political reasons, and not upon the merits of the cases. We charge the Rebublican party both in the State and in the nation with gross extravagance and willful waste in the expenditure of the people's money, 'A aa&--c pledge ourselves to retrenchment and reforpi, and to an economical bust iness administration of public affairs. Sec. r We are in favor of a direct primary eleetion law, providing that all primary elections shall be conducted under lawf h1 authority and at public expense, and to be regulated in the same manner and subject to the same penalties for violations, as in case of regular elections. Sec 6 We favor the enactment of an explicit and effeqtive corrupt practice act, which shall determine what campaign expenses shall be legitimate, and which shall provide for the compulsory publication in detail, under heavy penalties, of the campaign expenses of every candidate for public office. Sec. 7 We favor the enacting of such additional laws as will make our entire common school system more efficient and more practical. We pledge our support to our school system and the educational institutions of the State, wisely and economcally administered. Money appropriated for the education of the people is an investment and not an expense; school trustees, school boards and all school officials should he held rigidly responsible for adequate returns on every dollar so invested. We charge the Republican party with neglect of and indifference toward our school sastem. Recognizing that a large majority of the teachers of our common schools women and that women are now eligible to be elected school trustees, counare ty school superintendent, and to hold office, and are frequently so elected, we favor the extension to women of suffrage in all school elections, subject to such wise regulations as to qualifications as the General Assembly may determine. Sec 8 We favor such laws as will, under appropiate penalties, destroy all corrupt lobbying seeking to influence any legislative body in the Commonwealth on the subject of legislation or the election of officers by it. or in any other matter; but we recognize the constitutional right of the people to petition and to be impartially heid on all questions. Sec. 9 We favor under wise and proper restrictions, the creation of a State Utilities Commission, having ample powers to discharge its duties. Sec. 10 -- We favor a change in the present method of selecting the Prison Commissioners of tht State, and the removal of all politics from the management of our penal institutions. While commending the present Board of Prison Commissioners for its successful management of the institutions under its care, we recognize that the system of election by the Legislature, under which they are elected, is unwise, and we therefore favor such a change as will place their ,appointmenis in the hands of the Governor, subject to confirmation by the Senate, or some other method such as the General Assembly may provide. Sec. 11 We favor a law requiring that a uniform system of accounting be installed and conducted in all public offices charged with the collection and of public moneys. 12 We favor the General Assembly submitting to a vote of the people . Sec. 'whether or not they desire to adopt an amendment of our State Constitution .. iroadening the powers of the General Assembly, so that it may classify proper-;t- y for the purposes of taxation; but we are opposed to any.law the effect of which would be to lighten the burdens of taxation on the wealthy and on corporations at the expense of the poor, the farmer or the laboring man. S6C 13 Temperance is essentially a moral, and social question should not be made a p?rtisan issue betwaen political parties. and We favor the extention of the present local option law, as applied to the sale of liquors, which has been upheld by our highest courts valid and constitutional, so that the citizens of each and every county in the State may determine for themselves whether spiiitous, vinous or malt liquors may be sold therein. We favor organization and co operation 'among the farmers and Sec.1-I laborers of the State, and the enactment of such constitutional laws as will pro- ",c biccu vyyicnaiuu uj. uie trusts ana monopolies ot the ine l; jtecs which are the direct fruit o'f Republican legislation. country, i j.

Sec. 19 We favor a law prohibiting peonage and female slave traffic, regardless of color. Sec. 20 We are opposed to all mobs and lynchings and are in favor of imposing the severest penalty possible, under our Constitution, on all officers who fail to protect prisoners intrusted to their keeping. Sec. 21 The Democratic party has always been the party of religious, as well as civil liberty, in Kentucky and in the republic. It refers with pride to its noble and consistent record on this important question, so4 'dear to every true Americanheart." We are in full accord, both in letter and spirit, with the teachings of Thomas Jefferson, the founder of our party, on this question, and with the provisions of our State and Federal Constitutions, and we are unalterably opposed to raising any religious test as a qualification for holding any office in the State or nation. Sec. 22 We favor the' nomination and election of United States Senators by direct vote of the people. Sec. 23 We denounce and are opposed to Cannonism or power in all reprssentative assemblies, whether it be in Congress or in representative conventions. We favor the "rule of the people." Sec. 24-this platform of principles and on the aims and purposes of our party in the State and in the Nation, we appeal to all Kentuckians, irrespective of previous political affiliations, who are proudof the past and desire a still more prosperous, more progressive present and future, for all our people, to support our magnificent State ticket, including our nominee for the United States and our nomine1 s for General Assembly and for other offices. Sec. 25 CONCLUSION. In conclusion we call the attention of Kentuckians to the fact Democratic principles are triumphant in the Nation and in almost every State and that the Republican party every where is professing to adopt Democratic principles in its platforms, but we warn them that the Republicans of this State have placed in their platform some progressive Democratic doctrines, not with a view to carry them out or to attempt to carry them out in good faith, in improbable event of their auccess at the polls next November, but only for the present purpose of catching votes and deceiving the people, so that they might get the offices and emoluments thereof. The broken promises of the present Republican State and National Administrations as well as the entire history of the Republican party, are sufficient to convince all citizens of the insincerity of the Republican party and that it is not the party of the people; while on the other hand the record and history of the Democratic party in the Nation and the State conclusively established its devotion to duty and its purposes in good faith to redeem all platform pledges made to the people. one-ma- n On Sen-atorshi- Successful Revival.

We also notice that in church the custom is right, the reverse, the back seats are crowded and if there are any empty pews they are always between the preacher and the people, and the glad tidings of salvation lose half their charms in having to bound over empty pews to reach the audience Why this should be the custom is not exactly clear to us, unless in the latter instance position is taken according to scripture, the lowest place first in order to be invited higher.

Duncan and a picture that shows the result of painstaking effort. A bookcase large enough to bold 100 books is an adornment to any household, and the youngster who is clever enough to gather in some nice bits of pine wood and "then tackle the tool box in the barn will be sure to have something extra from mother in his Christmas stocking. Here are the rules to follow: In the use of all eftge tools, if you would avoid cracks and splitting, be patient and do not attempt to remove wood too rapidly, although the tools should be always kept with perfectly sharp edges. There Is much marking out to do, and as this must be accurately done a good sharp pencil should always be at hand. In sandpapering it is best to wrap the paper around a block, as the result is more uniform than when the paper is supported by the hand alone. The three shelves, which are identical in every particular, should be smoothly finished, giving particulai attention to the ends, as these are visible through the side strips. In order to fit around the four corners of the uprights, the four comers of these must be notched out. These uprights, after having been cut to length, smoothly finished and the corners rubbed, down very lightly with sandpaper, should have the location of the shelves marked on them and then have the holes bored for the screws. From half inch wood cut out four brackets of such a length as to fit closely between the two uprights of each end Six little side strips, measby one inch, are reuring quired, which should be flat on top and pointed at their ends.

People of the Kordofan province, Africa, use baobab trees as reservoirs for the scanty water of that district The trees have to be prepared carefully for this use. The large branches are first cut off near the trunk. If this is not done the trunk is apt to split as soon as it is hollowed out A hole Is cut in the trunk, generally just above a branch, which serves as a platform for the man who is filling the tree, and the interior is hollowed out Round the bottom of the tree a shallow basin some twenty or thirty feet in diameter is made, in which the rainwater collects. As soon as there is a storm the people go out and fill their trees. The water so stored remains perfectly good until the end of the next hot weather or even longer. A few trees, naturally hollow, have a hole at the top between the branches and fill themselves, the branches catching the water and acting as gutters. These are called and are highly valued. The system gives a cistern twenty feet high and from eight to ten feet or even more in diameter. Owing to the labor involved in preparing and filling the trees water is usually bought an. sold, and on the main roads where d there is much traffic, as between and .Tebel el Hilla on the way to El Fasher. the capital of Darfur, the people do a regular trade by supplying merchants and travelers with water.

On reaching the bottom of the well the leather opens out and collects the water, however little there may be. Chicago News. "la-gai- ," Na-hu- COUNTY NEWS A QUEER LEGEND. -- FAIRLY WARNED. Fedor Kosmich, the Hermit, May Have Been a Russian Czar. A curious legend is associated with the name of Alexander I. of Russia. It is to the effect that the emporor in 1S25 was sojourning in the Crimea. When near Taganrog his coachman by some means managed to overturn the carriage of a court courier named Markof, who was killed. The emperor," wishing to rid himself of the cares of state, so the story runs, caused it to be reported that it was he himself who was killed. Then he carried out a plan which he had for long conceived of retiring to Siberia and living there under an assumed name. Schilder, the historian, professes to have satisfied liimseif that at all events the remains in the Cathedral of Peter and Paul are those of the courier. Schilder asserts that he learned this much from the children of Markof. According to the legend. Alexander I. of Russia died in Siberia in 1SG4. but history records that he died at Taganrog in 1S2.". It seems that in 1S25 a mysterious stranger appeared in Siberia. He gave his name as Fedor Kosmich and never revealed any other or the place whence he came, lie lived the life of a hermit and was received generally with respect. In 1S5G he accepted the invitation of a rich merchant to take up his abode in his house at Tomsk. There he was very retired and held communication only with Mile. Kromof and the merchant, her father. Every one who saw him was struck with his extraordinary resemblance to the defunct czar. The Grand Duke Nicholas Michailovitch contributed an article in the Revue Ilistorique in which he denied the sensational part of the story, but admitted that the hermit of Siberia might have been a natural brother of Alexander I. London . IILWAY SSI NALS in "Fireworks" That Serve as Train Protectors. CODE OF TORPEDO' AND FUSEE Messages These Audible and Visible Danger Signs Convey to the Engineer The Use of Pyrotechnics as Signals In the Naval Service. "Pop. pop," or perhaps a single "pop." sharp and distinct like that of a giant firecracker heard not only on the Fourth of July, but on every day in the year, Sundays included. What did it mean? And on almost any night as I look out of my window 1 see the edge of the wood or the fields lighted up by red or yellow fireworks. Why this strange illumination? As all these queer happenings took place on the railroad a few rods from my house 1 made inquiries of the railway officials, and here are some inter esting facts about the use of these curious "fireworks." The general superintendent of the New York. New Haven and Hartfoid railroad explained as follows: "Our rules provide for the use of detonators, commonly known as torpedoes, as audible signals and of 'fusees' as visible signals. "These torpedoes are attached to the top of the rail on the engineer's side of the track by two small flexible metal straps, which are easily bent around the ball of the rail, as shown in the picture, and hold the torpedoes securely in place until exploded by the first train passing over this track. "The explosion of one torpedo is a signal to stop; the explosion of two. not more than 200 feet apart is a signal to reduce speed and look out for a stop signal. "The fusees are of similar construction to the well known Roman candle used for fireworks celebrations, except that they burn a steady flame without explosions. A sharp iron spike at the bottom end will usually stick in the ground or in the cross tie when thrown from the rear of a train and holds the fusee in an upright position, where it Is more plainly visible. "A fusee must be lighted and left by the flagman whenever a train is running on the "time" of another train or behind its own time and under circumstances which call for such pro tectlon. "A fusee on or near the track, burning red. must not be passed. When burning yellow the train may proceed with caution when the way is seen and known to be clear. Standard fusees burn red for three minutes and yellow for seven minutes and can be seen for quite a distance. "You will gather from the above explanations that the red glare of a flaming fusee on or near the track warns the approaching engineer that a preceding train has passed over his track less than three minutes ahead of him. and under no circumstances must he pass this signal while burning red. When the flame turns to yellow he may proceed with caution, only as the way is seen and known to be clear, keeping in mind that when the fusee changed from red to yellow he was exactly three minutes behind a preceding train, which may have stopped within a short distance or may be proceeding at an unusually slow rate of speed." The superintendent of the Shore Hue division, another branch of the same railroad, gives this additional detail regarding torpedoes: "When a train stops upon the main line and requires protection against a following train the flagman goes back a" specified distance and places one tor pedo. He then continues a farther distance back, placing two torpedoes. As soon as the train he is protecting is ready to start the engineer blows a specified whistle signal, which is a notice to the flagman to return to his train. On the way back he picks up the one torpedo, leaving two on the rail to warn the engineer of an approaching train that another train is a short distance ahead and to give the flagman time to runback and get aboard of his own train." Of the use of fireworks as signals in the navy the chief of the burea'u of construction and repair of the navy department. Washington, makes the following statement: "All mpdern ships are fitted with electric signals, and the use of such signals is general in the naval service. In the ca'se of small vessels having no electric installation and also for use in case of the failure of the electric signals the unvy has a system of colored stars in connection with rockets for the purpose of signaling. "These are in no sense the ordinary commercial fireworks, but are manufactured by the service for naval use exclusively. "There are no photographs of this system of signals for distribution. The apparatus, consists of a specially designed pistol from which are fired cartridges containing he colored stars that rire used In the service code." New York Mail. the 'serenade.

These romantic attentions have taken flight with the advent of electric lights, elevated railroads and other voices of the night, but even New York had a few hours of stillness, after midnight, and the night watchman lent an indulgent ear to these revelers, who would doubtless be locked up as disturbers of the peace did they hazard such an enterprise under our modern regime.

He believes in asking for a thing until he gets it and then well, he is immediately in need of something else. He has lived on the same estate all his life, and until quite recently he was paying a merely nominal rent 1 a year for the small cottage he occupied. Simon, however, wasn't quite satisfied. Whenever he paid an installment of his rent he called his master's attention to the fact that this thing wanted doing and that thing wanted doing to the property. At length Simon's master decided on a bold move. The next time Simon turned up with the quarter's rent and the usual list of suggested repairs the owner was prepared to meet him. "Look here, Simon," he remarked. "I've been thinking the matter over, and in recognition of your long and faithful service I'm going to make you a free gift of the cottage you live in.

The Old Crook's Advice to His Brilliant Young Pupil. "All this easy talk about 'honest' graft," said an author, "makes me tired. There isn't any such thing. 'Honest' graft is on a par with th point of view of an incorrigible old crook I ran across when I was doing police work on a Chicago paper year ago. The venerable reprobate had son about eighteen years old, whon. he had carefully trained to follow in his own footsteps. They lived together, and every night the old man usei to make the boy fork over the proceeds of the day's pocketpicking, allowing him just enough to live on. "Finally the young crook began te rebel Inwardly, and one night, after a particularly good day's haul, he a diamond scarfpin an kept the money himself He gave the-olthief the rest of the swag, however, and it was so goodly a pile that he opened his heart and handed th astonished boy $5 and told him to gr to a prizefight or somewhere and enjoy himself. So the boy began to put on his only glad rags. But he seemed strangely silent and distraught The old man noticed It and demanded what was the matter and if the $3 wasn't enough, and so on. "Suddenly the lad burst into tears. 'Guv'nor.' he sobbed, 'I ain't no right to this five spot Here's $10 I got on & pin today, and I was goln' to hold it out on you.' "The old crook took the money and gazed with sadness upon his child. 'Son, he said. 'I want to tell yon one thing. Take it from me. folks that gets money that way will never, never come to no good.'

Perhaps nothing illustrates better the vicissitudes of pronunciation in English than a study of what is called the "Irish brogue." This lingual mode, for it is scarcely to be called a dialect, is usually presumed to be a deterioration of language due to lack of education and contact with legitimate sources of English. It proves after a little study to be a preservation of the old method of pronouncing English, which has come down to a great degree unchanged in Ireland from Shakespeare's time. In Elizabeth's time, however, it came to be realized that if there was to be any real affiliation of the two countries then the Irish language must be supplanted by English, and a definite effort in this direction was made. This change of speech, resented and resisted, was nevertheless successfully accomplished all over the island except in the west within a decade after Shakespeare's death. This fact takes on a new significance when we study what we now call the Irish brogue in connection with what Is known to have been the pronunciation of English at that time. The two are found to conform in practioally every respect. Irishmen pronounce English as their forefathers learned it and have preserved its pronunciation because thy have been away from the main current of English speech variation ever since.
