Fortunately, pectations. Her battle-scarre- d territory has given forth a wealth of natural resources undreamed of in those strenuous times. Though Alamo the the Thermopylae of the Western Hemisphere, is more generally known as the state's dearest historic relic, there is another spot almost equally reverenced. This is marked by the old capitol building, situated on the Brazos river in the town of Columbia, Texas, not far from the San Jancinto battlefield, the sancti campo' or sacred ground on which was fought the fight that won the Texans' independence. the aged frame structure of unpretentious contour and design has fallen to decay. Though much has been done to beautify the battleground, the first capitol Texas ever had stands desolate. In front of the door of the old house still remains the tree trunk to which the Mexican dictator, Santa Anna, when captured by the Texas patriots, was tied before his identity became known to his captors. The Declaration of Independence of Texas from Mexico, drawn upland signed March 2, 1836, aroused the vindictive hatred of Santa Anna. On receiving word that the Texans were gathering in numbers in then Northern part of the then To-da- y, j the relations existing between Great Britain and America are the result of ties of blood as well as the mutual obligations undertaken in formal agreements looking to the commercial welfare of two great nations.

Suddenly the wind strengthened, until it blew a gale. It Immediately became a question of saving the lives of the men. The Are fighters were in a deep forest many miles from a railroad and far from any clearing. "Pulaski remembered that within a mile of where they were working there was an abandoned mine shaft running back about fjrty feet into the hillside. He rushed his men to the shaft as quickly as possible and told them as they passed through their camp to catch up their blankets as they ran. The shaft reached, Pulaski hurried his men into it and, packed like sardines, they filled it up. Pulaski placed himself at the opening, across which ho stretched a blanket "Within a few minutes after the men were in the shaft the fire came. The blanket at the opening caught, and Pulaski jerked it away and hung up another, which caught in its turn. The blanket caught again and again, nnd each time Pulaski replaced it until toward the last he held the blanket across the opening with his bare er foundation for the family life; the central idea being that sothere are few towns in Servia ciety should exercise closer scruworthy of the name. tiny over the institution of marPractically the whole populariage than the mere perfunctory tion dwells on the land, husbandbeing the asset which fills all requirements ry and at the present time Portlaud staple industries.

"The shaft grew hotter and hotter, and the smoke and fumes grew thicker and thicker until the men's suffer ings were almost beyond human endurance. They began to break for the opening. Pulaski, whose strength was great, like his courage, for awhile forced them back. Seeing that ho would soon be overpowered and that his men would rush to their certain death, he drew his revolver and said that he would kill the first man who broke away.

The progressive party came into existence as the result cf Colonel Roosevelt's dangerous ambition. It stands for no great principles for which the Republican party doesn't stand, and this the most of those who voted for Col. Koosevelt vill find out and admit before another presidential campaign comes along. The third party is founded on false principles and revolution- arv doctrines which are destruc tive of sound and stable govarrr- ment." That this is true some of the Progressives are already admitting. The recent conference at Chi- cago of the progressive leaders disclosed the fact that some of the more prominent of the Progressives were already suffering from cold feet. There will be more invalids from that trouble soon after the next administration gets into working shape. They will see more elearly than they did in the heat of the recent campaign that the Progressive party is simply a one-mparty a Roosevelt party and that it has no chance of living except as a Roosevelt . orWithout him it ganization. would quickly drop out of sight and be practically iorgotton-Thto-doub- t an e iectrio Bitters F. ? v JHE ADAIR COUNTY THE ADAIR COUNT NEWS Treasuaerf Rhea for interestbear-ing NEWS - 'y' Published Every Wednesday warrants to the amount of thirtySthousandfdollars to save BY THE sixty Louisville men who are V the notes.

Phelps of New Tork told the delegates to the recent international congress of hygiene at Washington about the enormous death rate among babies in the United States. lie also told them how infant lives might be saved and how they were now sacrificed by sin, poverty, neglect and ignorance. He said among other things: "Fifty-fiv- e million babies are born Into the world each year. But of them 15,000,000 more than die before they reach the age of one year. This means that about 40,000 babies die every day in the year, "or that on every other tick of the clock an infant life goes out. To this terrible harvest of Infant lives the United States contributes 1,000 a day. There are the best reasons for believing that at least 50 per cent of the world's infant mortality is readily preventable, and the civilized countries are just beginning to awake to that fact."

America Through German Spectacles. r5Vhen we say 'America' we mean our own country," writes an American student from Berlin, "but here that geographical term covers a larger territory, and when a native speaks of a 'brother in America' he may refer to a coffee grower at Rio or a miner or merchant at Caracas. This 'greater America and the German lack of knowledge as to when to draw the line between north and south were shown at a theater here recently'. In a little play one scene represepted a barroom in a Nevada mining camp. The bar was an elaborate affair; there was carpet on the floor, and, to cap all. the patrons wore costumes such as one sees in Brazil. The 'tough' man wore a sombrero ornamented with tiny bells, and the hero's dress would have been appropriate for the chorus in 'Carmen.' " New York Tribune. this paper.

The Daily Louisville Herald Enjoys the largest circulation in Kentucky because it is the best newspaper in the State and the people know it. 1 NEWS WHEN IT IS NEWS Besides giving the public the most reliable market reports as well as general news, The Herald's special features make it pre-eminent among Louisville newspapers. attention is called to Herbert Quick's masterful articles which are now running serially in The Herald entitled Special It Was Mary Stuart Who Set the Fashion For That Color. The majority of brides choose white when selecting their wedding dress because it is the conventional color, and many persons are of the opinion that it always has been favored. As a matter of fact, it is of comparatively modern origin, and In most eastern countries pink is the .bridal color. During the middle ages and In the renaissance period brides wore crimson to the exclusion of all other colors. Most of the Flantagenet and Tudor queens were married in that vivid hue, which Is still popular in parts of Brittany, where the bride Is usually dressed in crimson brocade. It was Mary Stuart who first changed the color of the bridal garments. At her marriage with Francis n. of France in 1558, which took place not before the altar, but before the great doors of Notre Dame, she was gowned in white brocade, with a train of pale blue Persian velvet six yards in length. This innovation caused a great stir In the fashionable world of that time. It was not, however, until quite the end of the seventeenth century that pure white the color worn by royal widows became popular for bridal garments. London Sketch. !

The man had evidently ridden under the hollow bough to get at the young parrots. The bough was out of reach, and so he stood on the saddle to reach it. Then he. pushed his arm into the hollow to feel for the birds. The horse moved away and left him hanging in midair with his arm jammed in the hole in the bough. In that position he probably remained for a long time. The trunk of the tree was scratched as though by his spurs as he sought to raise himself to the bough in which his forearm was imprisoned. The agony for his lips and' tongue were bitten through seems to have driven him to madness. With his pocketknif e, probably opened with his teeth, he began to saw at the elbow joint of the imprisoned arm. The crude process of amputation was completed and he dropped to the ground.
