In order to maintain a little cemetery on the banks of Creen River, where stands a memorial to those members of Morgan's command who fell in the battle of Green River bridge July 4th, 1863, a movement for funds to keep up the graves and repair walls and fences, as well as the foundations of the monument, has been started by the Daughters of the Confederacy at Lebanon, and has been given impetus by an appeal issued by prominent Confederate veterans to the survivors of Morgan's command. It is stated that, in addition to moneys already raised, about S330 is needed, and those who are inclined to aid the cause are urged to remit to Col. William A. Milton. The appeal, in full, follows: "To the survivors of Gen. John II. Morgan's command." "On the Fourth of July, 1S63, the battle of Green River bridge was fought. It resulted in one of the most disastrious defeats which befell Morgan's command during the war. The unusual number of otlicers killed and the fact that more men were killed than were wounded demonstrates the courage and valor of those who engaged in the battle. "While the .remains of many of those who there died were subsequently removed to their homes, still quite a number were interred in the small area on the banks of Green Rivex near the battlefield. Some years since the space was inclosed and a monument erected to those who there gave their lives for the cause of the Southland. "The wall and fence have fallen into decay, the foundations of the monument have weakened and it is necessary to rebuild the walls and repair the damages that have come to the memorial. "The Daughters 01 the Confederacy at Lebanon, Ky., have undertaken this work, but they find the cost They larger than was anticipated. sum, but have raised a considerable about $350 in addition will be needed for doing what is necessary to maintain this little cemetery made sacred by the dust of our gallent comrades. "We believe that all those who are able will consider it both a privilege and an honor to unite in this effort to properly preserve the graves and mark the spot where sleep those who died on that day. We suggest that all who feel inclined to aid this worthy effort remit to Col. William A. Milton. Louisville, Ky., such amounts as they desire to contribute to carry out the purposes herein indicated. "James B. McCreary, "John B. Castleman, "Bennett II, Young, "Basil W. Duke" Perhaps the largest Democratic vote ever polled in a primary in Adair county, was cast last Saturday, over fourteen hundred votes being recorded. The Republican and Progressive vote was light. We will not give the vote each candidate received, believing that all that is necessary is to name the winners. The hottest fights were for County Judge, Sheriff, School Superintendent, Jailer and Assessor. Friends of the candidates were active throughout the day. The following is the result: Democratic State Senator, J. O. Ewing, County Judge, Tanner Ottley, Majority about 250. County Court Clerk, Walker Bryant. Ilad no opposition, but received a large vote. County Attorney, Gordon Montgomery, majority between six and eight hundred. Sheriff, S. H. Mitchell, majarity about 50, Jailer, C. G. Jeffries, majority about 50 Assessor, Ralph Waggener, majority about 50, School Superintendent. E. A. Strange majority about 275. Republican State Senator, L. T. Heat, Representative, A. W.

P. d, It appearing from the returns that I have been defeated for the Democratic nomination for County Attorney I take this method of thanking those of you who stood by me so faith-fnllyfyour support, and assuring you that I am just the same true and loyal Democrat that I would have been had I been given the nomination I sought. 1 am now ready to put my shnniflpr tn the wheel and fitrht for I Democratic success in November. nomiwent into this fight to win this nation if it could be secured by fair means and without the use of racney. I adherred to this principle ana thus know that each and every one of you who voted for me and supported me are true blue Democrats and men who no amount of money would influence to vote against the man of yourchoice. So far as I have been able to ascertain at this time my opponent conducted his campaign on the same lofty principles that I did mine and now that he is the choice of our party lets all rally to his standard and make him our County Attorney for another term. And now thanking you again for the support rendered me and assuritig you that I shall ever remember you and trusting that if I should ever again come before the people asking for this or any other office you will again come out and stand by me as you have in the campaign just closed Ishall ever remain Yours for Democracy. .R. L. Campbell A The following Republicans were nominated in Russell county: State Senator, Robert Antle, County Judge, A. M. F. Hill, Sheriff, Lee Calhoun, County Clerk, Luther Bernard, County Attorney, R. E. Loyd, Jailer, Ru-fu- s Campbell, School Superintendent, J. W. Mitchell. The Democrats nominated J. O Ewincr for the State Senator, F. J. Simmons for County Judge, J. N. Meadows for County Attorney, U. T. Selby, for Sheriff, P. A. Coffey, for Jailer, E. M. Montgomery, School Superintendent. Did not learn the Assessors nominated by either party. Mr. Lilburn Phelps, Republican, made a very successful race for the Legislature, in the counties of Russell and Casey. He carried Russell county over Dr. J. D. Combest by. nearly eight hundred votes. The many Columbia friends of Mr. Lilburn Phelps desire to extend their congratulations over his election to the Legislature from Russell a'nd Casey. He was opposed by an elegant gentleman in the person of Dr. John Combest. It i s our understanding that the race was clean, and the defeated candidate, like a good party man, cheerfully submits. In the Quicksand Mr. Chas. Walls, of The following was contributed to the Lebanon Enterpeise: Many a young wife is so negligent of her husbands comfort, is so glum and blue and cheerless, that home to him is not a place to stay. He'd rather be out among the boys, there's life and fun among them, while there is' nothing but fault finding and cross looks at home. The wife who cannot talk intelligently and pleasantly to her husband about business matters that concern them both, and make the home a place that he will not be ashamed to invite his friends to visit, is lost. He most likely will bring his friends when she is cleaning house, or has a sick headache, or there is nothing good for dinner, but that doesn't make any difference, it doesn't excuse her forgetting out of sorts about it. she must smile on and do the best she can, not forgetting that a good name is rather to be chosen than great riches; it is a priceless possession that can only be obtained by being put through the fiery furnace. This is the way true metal is tested. Let the young husband and wife not grow discouraged at defects they find in cne another.

Only once or twice did she seem to wake from her lethargy. On one occasion, in response to a cry from her mother, she moved her lips as if to try and speak When her mother died Caroline must have been conscious of the fact, for she burst into tears, though there was no other change in her condition. Two years later, when her brother was drowned, she also had a fit of weeping. For 30 years and more her only nourishment consisted of two cupfuls of milk a day. Kings of Siam apparently do not believe in the wisdom of allowing single women to drift unattended about the country. In certain districts after a girl has reached an age where her secur ing for herself a husband is con sidered doubtful, she becomes a "daughter of the king " That is, the king takes upon himself the task of settling her. suitably in life. His process is quite simple and to the point. He proceeds to the Siamese penitentiary and looks over the various prisoners. There is a law in Siam that any prisoner can obtain his release by marrying one )f this class of girls, and naturally enough, any prison-- , er whom the king picks out is not likely to be backward about consenting t o the ceremony. Nor does it make any difference if he is married, for the men of that country are not restricted to one wife. As far as can be learned, there is no allowance made for the inclination of the girl in question. She has failed in her mission of life as far as she herself is concerned, and she must abide by the decision of the king. What Was "Forbidden Fruit?" being named to investigate the matter, J. S. Oliver, advertising manager of the Evansville Brewing Association, wrote to twenty of the most prominent national advertisers in the United States and asked them which publicity medium, in their estimation was the most valuable, newspapers, billboards, painted walls, street cars or direct circulars? Nineteen of the twenty named newspapers without hesitation and a number went so far as to recite their experiences in detail and named the reasons for their conclusion. This has been a much mooted question in advertising circles for years and row that this investigation has disclosed beyond dispute the fact that newspapers are the most valuable of all advertising mediums, it is expected other opinions will be vouchsafed throughout the country.

The fact is that in Every farmer should raise Genesis III, where the incident of the eating of this fruit of the over 100 fowls for use on his own "Tree of Knowledge of Good home table. ! i and Evil" is mentioned, no name whatever is given to that fruit. All that is said is: "And wnen the woman 3aw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, sne wok of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her: and he did When skimmilk is to be had, use it instead of water in the i eat." (Verse 6.) i j . In fact, scholars doubt very se riously whether it was the apple at all. They suggest that all evidence points to it having been the quince, the fragrance of which was held in the highest esteem by the Orientals. Another point in favor of the quince is that it is the fruit which was sacred to Venus, the goddess of love, and in a great many of the ancient writings the Quince is Very frequently mentioned in this manner. In Babylonia, Ish-ta- r took the place of Venus in the Roman mythology, and it should be remembered that the story of the creation originated with the Babylonions. All evidence seems to point away from the apple having been the "For- bidden Fruit," and towards the quince as having been that fruit of the "Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil."

FOR CANNING SMALL FRUIT. and on subsequent growth-fir- st, One of the traditional stories of the town of Fairfield, Conn., recounts a wild dash from the pulpit made by a worthy and beloved pastor of the Episcopal flock. Dr. Labaree. It was on a Sunday more than a hundred years ago. The service had been read, the prayers said, the hymns sung, and tbe parson began his sermon. As he proceeded his gestures became very energetic. He brought his right hand down with great force. Then he turned pale, cleared the pulpit stairs at a bound, dashed out of the church door and ran toward the pond a short distance away. The congregation followed in bewildered pursuit and saw their venerable pastor with flying robe rush Into the water until It came to his neck. Then, turning round, he faced his astonished audience- and said: "Dearly beloved brethren, I am not crazy, as no doubt many of you think, but yesterday at the drug store I bought a bottle of nitric acid and carelessly left it in my pocket today. "My last gesture broke the bottle. I knew the suffering the acid would cause when it penetrated my clothing and rushed for the water to save myself pain." He drew several pieces of glass from his pocket in witness of the tale. Then he dismissed the company and hurried - They Are Just About as They Wero Couple of Centuries Ago. The belief of many people that the seasons are undergoing some kindrof change has led Professor Ignazlo Galll to examine the weather records of the entire eighteenth century. The investigations of Professor Galli show fifty-on- e winters that lasted well warm winters, Into spring, thirty-on- e thirteen unusually early winters, twelve mild winters followed b? cold springs, eleven mild winters followed by mild springs, eleven cold autumns, eight very warm springs, eight" summers with frosts and five very warm autumns. There was one instance ofj six consecutive warm seasons. More s of the periods of than unusual weather occurred between the middle of autumn and the end of spring. Many times during the eighteenth century the same apparent anomalies recurred at the same seasons in several successive years. In every case the seasons regained their normal characteristics. There have always been persons who imagined that the seasons were becoming warmer or colder than before. There is. however, small foundation for such beliefs. The world Las indeed experienced many cold summers and many warm winters, but such sea sons are not the rule, but the excep- j tion. Youth's Companion. three-quarterJ home. A lady reader of these notes gives the writer the following recipe for canning strawberries, raspberries and other small fruits and has given him can of fine looking strawberries as proof that the method she follows Ib a success: She first sterilizes her cans and covers with boiling water, then fills them with the uncooked berries, setting the cans in a dishpan containing a quantity of warm water. Prior to this she has prepared her sirup, which is boiling hot. As soon as the water in the pan is brought to a boil the cans containing the berries are removed to a platter and the sirup ia then poured over them. As the berries shrink some, reducing the volume In the cans, enough sirup is added so that the cans run over. The covers are then screwed on, and the job is done. The chief advantage of this method seems to be that the berries retain their shape much better than where they are cooked for some time. . FROZEN WITH HEAT. Remarkablo Process Known as tho Caloric Paradox. Freezing Is usually associated with cold, but water can be frozen on a red-hplate. This pretty experiment has rightly been called the caloric paradox. If a drop of water is placed on a red-hor white hot metal plate it does not suddenly flash into steam undek the influence of the great heat It does not even boil. It simply evaporates quietly and slowly as It rolls about the plate. Now. suppose that the drop on ihe plate is a volatile liquid like sulphurous acid. It will evaporate, and this evaporation will produce oold. Let a drop of water fall in the sulphurous acid drop and it will be frozen In spite A ot ot sf the heat thus froze water on a white hot platinum capsule. Faraday SI. Boutigny SEED CORN TESTS. Decent tests which the students of the agricultural course of the high school in the writer's home town have made of a large supply of seed xrn saved last fall have brought out two interesting facts first that ears that were picked and hung up in September before any heavy frost occurred show a practically perfect germination test, while ears that were picked after the first heavy freeze not only show a larger number of dead kernels, but in many Instances the germinating power of those that grow is weak. If the average farmer would act on the information contained in these tests pick his corn before there is any frost and nse care in keeping it dry during the winter there would be practically no such thing as a seed corn problem. IMPORTANT TO DAIRYMEN. It looks very much as if the day was not far distant when all dairymen furnishing milk to cities of any consid erable size would be compelled to test their cows yearly for the detection of tuberculosis. The supreme court of the United States has affirmed the decision of a lower court granting municipalities the right of insisting on this test and this gives the necessary foundation. The wise dairyman who looks to the future of his business will not only take the steps necessary to eradicate the disease, but will look caref ully to the conditions under which his c iwa are kept so as to reduce to a miniu.um the likelihood of the development of the disease. And lie will be justified io advertising his milk as from tuberculin tested cows POOR MANAGEMENT. carried this remarkable experiment aven further.

A party of German naturalists recently returned from Ceylon have reported the existence of a species of ant that has been observed in the act of sewing two leaves together for the purpose of forming a nest This report confirms the observations of the English naturalist Ridley, made in 1S90. They saw a row of the insects pulling the edges of leaves together, then others trimming and fitting the edges, and finally the completion of the work by still other ants which fastened tho edges with a silky thread yielded by larvae of the same species the workers carried in their mandibles. It is said that the sewing ants pass the thread-givinlarvae like shuttles through holes in the edges of the leaves. Boston Post. g The Nebraska College of Agriculture last year sent out inquiries to 2.0O farmers who are engaged in the grow ing of wheat and found that with but few exceptions they burned their straw.

Kansas and Oklahoma, are guilty of arson and n directly impairing the productivity and physical quality of their soils.

In fact, taking the gains made by the Democratic party, it shows to be gaining strength not contemplated by the most enthusiastic. As we see it the main purpose of a State primary was to eliminate frauds so common in convention and party primaries and to guarantee equal opportunity between aspirants. In other words one offthelleading features of the law claimed by its advocates was to eliminate bosses and secure fair fresults. We have never believed it could be done under such a law,': we have never favored State regulation of party action, and have never believed that gthe present law was fair or productive of good.

Youth's Compaii Easy Method by Which One Hospital Prevents Their Spread. The power of a small glass partition to prevent the spread of infectious dls eases has been known in the hospitals of Europe for several years, but Is only becoming recognized in America. In the contagious wards of the Brooklyn Children's hospital glass partitions about five feet high are placed between the beds. And the effect is really astonishing. In one bed may be a child with pneumonia, in the next one with scarlet fever, in the next one with Cerebrospinal meningitis, measles. diphtheria and other such diseases may be represented in the other beds, but since the installation of the glass partitions no child "catches" the disease that his neighbor has. And yet the air circulates freely all around and above the glass partitions, and one would think that the germs would spread almost as easily as if these were not there. Yet experience has proved that this is not so. Physicians are revising their views about the spread of contagious diseases through the air. Some are even ridiculing the fumigation of rooms. The suggestion is that most of the pathogenic germs die very quickly in the air; that persons must come fairly close to the patients and be in almost direct contact with them if they are to "catch" the disease.

AN INGENIOUS CLOCK. fed dou-an- d io-da- Insane Person Has the Power of Shedding Tears. One of the most curious facts connected with madness is the utter absence of tears amid the insane. Whatever the form of madness, tears are conspicuous by their absence, as much in the depression of melancholy or excitement of mania as In the utter apathy of dementia. If a patient in a lunatic asylum be discovered in tears it will be found that it is one beginning to recover or an emotional outbreak in an epileptic, who is scarcely truly insane, while actual insane persons appear to have lost the power of weeping. It is only returning reason which can once more unloose the fountain of their tears. Even when a lunatic Is telling one in fervid language how she has been deprived of her children or the outrages that have been perpetrated upon herself her eye is never even moist. The ready gush of tears which accompanies the plaint of the sane woman contrasts strangely with the dry eyed appeal of the talkative lunatic. It would, indeed, seem that tears give relief to feelings which, when pent up, lead to madness. It is one of the privileges of reason to be able to weep. Amid all the misery of the insane they Gud no relief in tears. Pearson's Weekly. A Soy No Actually Opera the First Time. As an opera conductor Toscanini seems both to have achieved greatness and to have" had greatness thrust upon him. In the Century Max Smith, giving a character sketch of the eminent musician, thus describes his first triumph. Toscanini was In Rio de Janeiro, doing double duty in the opera house as first cellist and assistant chorus master. The sqason had gone badly from the beginning. One conductor had been rejected, and matters reached a crisis when an indignant audience, assembled to hear "Aida," refused to accept the services of an incompetent substitute, compelling him by main force to leave the orchestra, amid jeers, hisses and catcalls before the unfortunate man had lifted his baton. The impresario was in a quandary, when a delegation of influential subscribers insisted that he should not abandon the performance. They were ready, they said, to accept as leader any musician in the orchestra rather than the man dismissed. Some one suggested Toscanini, who beat a retreat to the stage, where he was found trying to hide in the wings. His efforts to escape were futile. No excuse was accepted. Forced Into the clawhammer coat worn by the costumer of the theater, he was dragged into the pit and lifted bodily to the conductor's stand, while the crowd roared its approval. The youthful maestro seized the baton, and suddenly the noise was nnellpfl. TT lipid thi nnrUvirtPfl only of the orchestra, but attention not of the mob. Every one could see that he was conducting from memory. Even then, making his first appearance as a leader, he was independent of the score, and so an evening that begun with tumultuous protests ended with bois- terous demonstrations of enthusiasm, insuring the cellist's employment as conductor to the end of the season. Brute force had launched him on his brilliant career. The news of his sensational debut was flashed across the ocean, and thereafter the doors of every opera house in Italy were open to him.

One or two of the tricks are quite common, notably that of doing something to make another player miss his or her cue. In one case an actress carried a fan, which she used deliberately to blow the sound of her low spoken syllables away from the other actress. As a result the latter had great difficulty in catching her cues, so much so that the audience began to speak of her as a poor actress, although in other pieces she had been praised most highly by the critics.

OUR HIGH SCHOOLS ARE PUTTING A PREMIUM UPON WORK WHICH HAS 40ME MENTAL AND CULTURAL INSTEAD OF COMMON, EVERYDAY HOME VALUE At the Henderson high school both domestic science and domestic arts for girls and manual training for boys have been given a very prominent place in the course of study. The school is now offering' a three year course, and a fourth will be added next September. It Is a four year course that, calls for e two periods each day in the week, that real, strong, helpful, practical work may be accomplished. Too much of our school work has been theory, and we must have time enough for the practical side of domestic science and manual training. Two years of this course, the freshman and the junior years, are used for sewing, pattern making, designing and a study of cloths and materials of various kinds. It is the aim of this work to have a girl strong enough to design a garment or plan a wardrobe rationally, to alter a pattern that does not fit or suit her. In a course of study of one period per day this would be Impossible, but with eighty minutes each day of her school year at a sew ing table results can be gotten. In domestic science the work is rather out of the ordinary in that it seems so thoroughly commonplace and bo usable in the home life that roost of us have to live 365 days in the year. There is nothing that is fancy, but a yery great deal about breads of various kinds, yeasts, baking powders, the care of sinks, refrigerators, etc. As one goes through this high school and sees the girls at this work there la the feeling that many of them are to be saved from the disappointment that oomes to most young housekeepers. That this work in Henderson appeals to the girls is shown bjrthe fact that out of a total enrollment of 126 girls eighty-seve- n are taking domestic science or domestic arts.

And in the first six months of 1913 only fourteen have occurred. Showing a steady and persistent decline in tuberculosis. The same tale is told in all ether preventable diseases. The death rate in the county is steadily declining. In 1911 there were 230 deaths, and in 1912 only 210. But the best showing has been among the children of the county. In 1912 there were reported 5337 school children with only 23 deaths. If they continue to die at only the same rate, it would require 231 veers to complete the job. In the Columbia Graded School we have 360 children, and it has run through 4 years without a death, until young Paul Crenshaw was killed. t We have had no death of a child in the town since February 1912. In the county with 17000 inhabitants, we have had but 216 deaths, which is a better showing than any other county can show, amounting to only 12 to the thousand people. In the town of Columbia, with 1,100 population, we have had but four deaths this year, outside of the boy who was killed, and they were all old men. That gives a little less than 8 to the thousand, a better showing than any town in the United States, except Brownwood Texas, which has a rate of 7 to the thousand. For all this work the Fiscal court refuses to pay a reasonable compensation. I am very glad that this court is not contagious. I do not want it to spread. Kentucky is afflicted with a great many similar courts, and I think that the place that now knows" our court, will shortly know them no more forever. Kentucky has over 40 counties that during the last decade lost in population from 200 to 2,500, and in not one of them did she pay her Health officer enough to keep him from starving, without being supplemented by his regular practice, and the public health had to suffer. The way to add to the length of human life, is to keep the people from dying. An old adage says that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. It is an easy matter to keep the people from getting sick, if you will swat the flies, break up the breeding places of the mosquitos, keep every thing about the place in the very best sanitary condition, and look on the bright side of every proposition. The four men who died in our town this year, had an average age of 73 years. Our town is remarkable for the great number of old Deople in it.
