The western part of the State lias suffered most and the eastern the least from the long The crop report as of August 1st shows the general crop condition to be the worst that has been known in Kentucky for many years owing to the continued drouth. Practically every report coming to this oilice contains a statement in regard to the lack of rain fall. There has been practically no rain fall since August 2st in the State when the crop reports were received and hence conditions are getting worse instead of better. Corn. has dropped to a condition of G3.G per cent for the entire State, many sections reporting less than one-ha- lf of the usual crop possibility. Owing to an error, the tobacco crop report is not complete, but from the few reporting on this crop, a condi tion of CO per cent for . dark tobacco and 65 for Burler tobacco is indicated. Pasture conditions are reported bad 67 per cent for Blue Grass, 69 per cent for Orchard rass and 67 per cent for clover. It is interesting to note how well leguminous crops are holding out The many friends of Mr. Dan Clark and family will be sorry to learn that they will bid their Columbia friends farewell the first of "September and depart for California, where they expect to reside. Mr. Clark lias been a citizen of this place for several years, his genial disposition winning the respect and admiration of the entire town. At all times in a good humor, a happy smile playing upon his conntenance from the rising of the sun to the setting thereof, never a word of reproach for anyone and a howdydo for every body, who could help liking a man with such admirable traits. Dan, the shaking of the hand is a serious thing, and the words, good bye, are hard to say, hence when your many friends bid you adieu, it will be with feelings of emotion. You will be missed at your place of business and in the halls of of the fraternal orders to which you belong, and by your generally. We trust that you and your interesting little family will have a safe journey to the golden gate, that prosper crowd all your efforts, and when you make lots of yellow eagles, you will return to Columbia to circulate them. es Meeting on the' streets the other day an old citizen of Columbia, whose memory runs back sixty years or more, we aked him to tell us of some of the changes in the old town within that period. is the Last week Mr. J. C. Strange, who A dispatch from Campbellsville,. n in this office, made a dated August 14th, to the Louisville business and pleasure trip to Burkes-viH- Post, says: job-mae, estab-lishmest- through these dry conditions. Cow psas are given at 78 per cent, soy beans at 76 percent and alfalfa at 69 per cent. Garden conditions are given U2 per cent and there is but little hope held out for abundant fall vegetables. The fruit crop continues in fair eon-tioCondition of apples is given as 65 per cent, peaches- 67.6 per cent, plums 63, pears 52 and grapes 81 per cent. Conditions of live stock has decreased owing to a shortage of pasture. Lack of stock water is driving many animals to the market. Condition of horses is given as 92 per cent, cattle 90.7, sheep 93 and hogs 90. Poultry is reported as suffering a great deal on account of excessive hot weather. The turkey crop will not be large. Condition of turkeys given at 85 per cent, chickens 92 per cent, and ducks 89 per cent. Tiie linal yield of wheat is given as 12.5 bushels per acre for the State as against 9.3 bushels last year. Oats at 18.3 bushels', barley at 17.8 bushels, rye 10.9 bushels. Basing the final yield of wheat on an acreage of 631,323 of which 79 8 per cent was left standing May 1st, an acreage of 513,693 would show a total yield of 6,796, 19t bushels for the State. The average price this season has been about 90 cents per bushel. The total value of wheat crop therefore for the year 1913 is 56,116.577. An interesting part of this crop report is the estimate of one hundred farmers of the cost of producing . an acre of wheat in Kentucky. Out of one hundred estimates from various portions of the State and with land values aud prices of labor, etc., varying the average estimate of the cost os producinganacreof wheat is $10.16. With the average of wheat for the State V2h bushels per acre and sold at 50 cents, it leaves the farmers of Kentucky making a profit of 91 cents per acre on their wheat for 1913. Rains in the near future could save more or iess of the tobacco crop but it is practically too. late to very materially benefit the corn crop of 1913. J. W.

Breeding, who was the auctioneer at the sale of the. property owned by the late A. H. Holt, Jamestown, on Monday last, reports that everything sold well, ind that the sale was largely attended.

Coffey, County Road Engineer, has, for the benefit of the county, bought a large number of spades, shovels, scrapes and plows which are to be used in benefiting the county roads. These tools are valuable and they have been placed in the hands of Mr. Coffey's overseers throughout the county for distribution. After use tho tools are to be returned to the persons who have them in charge. There has been complaint that i n certain localities, spades, shovels, etc., have not come up prompt ly, but it is hoped they have not been kept back for individual use. All the tools have a secret mark which can be readily identified by the Engineer. There is a penalty for appropriating public as well as private property, hence this warning notice is written.

That the sting of the wasp, which punctures the nerve centers of a captured caterpillar or spider, usually paralyzes the creature into helplessness rather than kills it Is well known. The victim remains alive in the burrow or cell in which the wasp stores It as food for the larva which will emerge from the egg laid in the same cell. Therefore the newly hatched grub finds ready for it a provision of living meat instead of decayed carrion. That "wizard" among entomologists, the venerable Fabre, has discovered a similar yet even more extraordinary fact in the history of the glowworm beetle (lampyris namely, that it anaesthetizes the prey upon which it Itself feeds, so that it may consume it at leisure and predigested. This beetle, whose brilliant phosphorescence attracts the eye in the dusk of the summer evenings, habitually hunts and seizes upon a certain small snail in order to eat it The curious thing is that the beetle anaesthetizes the mollusk at the first attack, preventing It from escaping by withdrawing to safety deep within its 3hell. Upon finding the snail the beetle dashes forward and, thrusting out its sharp, curved mandibles, repeatedly stabs the side of the body of its prey. After a few punctures the snail becomes insensible and remains, in that deadened state for three or four hours a time more than sufficient for the beetle to complete its meal. Independent. Professor Taylor of the agri cultural economics department of the University of Wisconsin agricultural experiment station says no single farm crop grown in Wisconsin keeps the farm la bor busy all the time, but by a proper combination of crops em ployment of labor can be extended materially throughout the year. There are, however, limits to diversification. For Instance, corn and tobacco require labor at the same time for planting and cultivation and are therefore competing crops, but tobacco furnishes winter employment to labor when there is a scarcity of employment, and therefore to this extent these crops are noncompeting or complementary. The use of crops may well extend the operations of the farm. non-competi- PNEUMONIA left me with a frightful cough and very weak.

Another entertainment in their honor will be a mammoth reception, at which refreshments will be served and opportunity provided for public addresses. For the few remaining actual sons and daughters a banquet will be given. A great ball will be given in the First Regiment Armory, which has a capacity of 20,000 for them. Forty per cent of the white male population of Kentucky engaged in the War of 1812, consequently forty per cent of the succeeding generation were really sons and daughters of that war, f and, estimating that of them intermarried with families which did not participate in the war, sixty per cent of the third generation were grandchildren of the war, and in simper ilar manner at least seventy-fiv- e cent and probably as high as ninety per cent of the fourth and incoming fifth generations are descendants of Kentuckians who fought in that wa". It is estimated that in the state of Kentucky alone one million men, women and children are eligible to participate in the proposed reunion, and it is estimated that another million no living outside of Kentucky are eligible one-hal- Job, but the Kaiser Was. Some time ago the kaiser heard that a captain in one of the guards regiments at Potsdam had fixed the regulation hour of schooling for his men at G o'clock in the morning. The kaiser, though doubting the fitness of such an early hour for the lesson and the ability of a popular young officer to keep up to this rather exacting standard of early rising, said nothing, but one day wicked into the barrack oom at U o'clock. The captain Was hot there, but the emperor showed neither annoyance nor surprise. He asked where the lesson was to be found in the books, and without more ado, to the mingled anxiety and delight of the men. he took the lesson in hand and explained the passage in history which was the subject of the day. It was nearly 7 o'clock when the captain showed himself. The kaiser returned his salute and made no allusion to his crestfallen countenance, but handed him the lesson book after pointing out how far the class had got and then left the room. Nothing more was said or heard about the incident until a few days later, when the captain received a handsome alarm clock, evidently from the kaiser. What the officer wrote in his letter of thanks for the gift is not recorded. "Ireland's Own." He Was Not oir the Early Morning lE5!SsS2iaMi Two Work Together to Bring Greater Profit to the Farmer. In a bulletin of the North Dakota station R, C. Doneghue says of live stock in the general plan of crop rotation: "In regions of light rainfall the maintenance of the organic matter of soils is the most practical method of increasing their water holding capacity. The plant remains. Straw, stubble, etc., in these sections decay very slowly, and much care is necessary in returning organic matter to these soils. "If live stock Is fed on the farm and the straw and other refuse are worked into the manure it will decay faster when returned to the land. While a rotation can be used with profit if live stock is hot kept, It is much easier to return the organic matter contained in the crop residues when they are fed on the farm. "Live stock is not absolutely necessary when beginning a rotation, but for the average conditions when they are kept the profits will be greater. A rotation may be followed without the return of the organic matter for a time, but eventually It must be returned. If not returned in manure more expensive methods must be used."

"As valuable as lime is on the farm when the correction of acid soils is necessary it is not necessary to pay exorbitant prices for it," said Porter Elliot of the College of Agriculture. Ohio State university. "At recent extension schools during the discussion of soil liming it developed that farmers were paying as high as 9 a ton for carbonate of lime when ground limestone, which would do the work just as well, could be secured for less than a third of that cost. Get good ground limestone, and it will correct acidity just as readily as the best carbonate of lime you can find on the market The farm profits will not increase until such useless waste is eliminated from the farm practices."

Government ( Construct a Play. One reason why a play is easier to write than a novel is that a play Is shorter than a novel. On the average one may say that it takes six plays to make the matter of a novel. Other things being equal, a short work of art presents fewer difficulties than a longer one. The contrary is held true by the majority, but then the majority, having never attempted to produce a long work of art, are unqualified to offer an opinion. It is said that the most difficult form of poetry Is the sonnet But the most difficult form of poetry is the epic. The proof that the sonnet is the most difficult form is alleged to be in the fewness of perfect sonnets. There are, however, few more perfect sonnets than perfect epics. A perfect sonnet may be a heavenly accident. But such accidents can never happen to writers of epics. Some years ago we had an enormous palaver about the "art of the short story," which numerous persons who had omitted to write novels pronounced to be more difficult than the novel. But the fact remains that there are scores of perfect short stories, whereas it is doubtful whether anybody but Turgenev ever did write a perfect novel. A short form is easier to manipulate than a long form because its construction is less complicated,' because the balance of its proportions can be more easily corrected by means of a rapid survey, because it is lawful and even necessary In it to leave undone many things which are very hard to do and because the emotional strain is less prolonged. The most difficult thing in all art is to maintain thet imaginative tension unslackened throughout a considerable period. Metropolitan Magazine.

Inc. Herman Steinhilber, Manager The Daily Louisville And The Times News Maurice Maeterlinck. Of the wooing of Maurice Maeterlinck by Mme. Georgette Leblanc the Gil Bias tells the story as given by the lady herself. Mme. Leblanc, on reading one of the poet's volumes, said to herself, said she, "This man shall be my husband and no other." She communicated this resolution to her friends, who made her believe that Maeterlinck was an old man with one foot in the grave. What was her surprise, when the long hoped for meeting took place, to find that he was "young and strong and beautiful." The lady ran toward the poet with a cry. But the poet bashfully recoiled, and little wonder, perhaps, for listen to Mme. Leblanc's own words: "I was like a little tigress. My heart was terribly excited, my cheeks burned, and my eyes were aflame." But there is no armor against fate, especially when fate takes the bizarre but alluring form of a "little tigress in a tight black dress with a long train and on the forehead, between the eyes, a simple blazing diamond." So continues the story of the interview: "I took his hand" thus Mme. Leblanc "and said to him, 'You are mine; you are my husband.' He was disconcerted by my boldness, which had the force of a storm in a forest. He questioned me on myself and my life. Sensitive as I am, I realized that he doubted me. 'Give me the time,' I said, 'and I will gain your confidence.' " Was ever poet in this manner wooed and won? Ouch! One of those dear lady friends of ours who take a particular interest in other people's affairs got on a car and sat down beside a quiet looking man whose face was badly pitted. "Why, you poor man!" she exclaimed. "How you must have suffered! How long ago did you have the smallpox?"

From what we can gather from published reports of the recent primary, considerable dissatisfaction prevails in a large num-o- f counties. It has been claimed by primary advocates that such a law would eliminate frauds, place contestants on equal footing and conserve public peace and political tranquility, but its first trial seems to set all such claims at naught. True, in many counties, and probably the larger towns and cities, it is reasonably satisfactory but equally true it failed to give satisfactory results in many. As we see it there is no reason why our State or county should incur the heavy expense of holding a primary when their interests sould only be indirectly benefited should the law prove to the highest expectancy of its advocates. The cost of the primary is equal to the cost of a general election, and its beneficial results as doubtfulfas party primaries or conventions. Presumably to give equal opportunity to allow men, not money, to contest for political honor, and trust, the State primary opens wide the avenue for any and every one to enter, but after all money and other means and methods are employed by the less scrupulous to defeat an honest expression of political parties just as it has been done in party conventions and party primaries. If there is a single reason why our State, already burdened with expense, 'with a growing deficit, now beyond the million dollar mark, should pay the expense of primaries or in plain language pay for two elections when only one is held we cannot see it. If the State primary law guarantees equalopportunity between men it fails to deliver the goods.

Just how modern is the essential and ubiquitous telephone now connecting over a half million houses and offices In New York city there is a casual line in. "Piaafore" which serves to indicate. When the kindly chorus is condoling with Ralph Rackstraw on his separation from his Josephine it chants these words to picture the terror of his lot: "No telephone connects with his dungeon cell." The line falls flat today. But "Pinafore" was produced for the first time in 1878, and in 187G the Bell patents for the first practical telephone were issued. Thus when the words were written they related to a new and startling invention that was the talk of the day, and the Gilbertian line was really a gay, topical jest It is a safe guess, however, that very few of the people who laughed at "Pinafore" in the seventies foresaw what the telephone would really prove to be. The years of the telephone are few. But already it has transformed business method and social intercourse.

A story of Wagner known to very e few is brought to the light by the Zeitung. When the composer was in a really merry mood, the right mood for story telling, he used to say that being in Berlin on a very hot summer's day and finding himself in the Donhoffsplatz, be summoned oco of the first class droshkies that were still fairly numerous at that time and told the driver where to go. His destination was at the very farthest point of a district within which only the lowest fare could be demanded. It struck Wagner immediately that his driver was taking a very affecting leave of one of his fellows, as though he were starting on a life or death journey. "Goodby, William," he said; "we shan't see each other again for a long time." After the carriage had rattled on for a good while It came suddenly to a standstill. The driver got down from his box on the right hand side, opened the carriage door and banged it to again; then he went round to the left side and repeated the performance, climbed up on to his box and resumed the journey. At the end of the drive o Wagner asked him what this show meant. The driver, with a sly look, made answer: "I just wanted to bamboozle my old nag. He would never have believed that the whole drive was for a minimum fare and would have refused to go on. But by banging the doors I got him to imagine that one fare had got out and another A Bit of Corned Vos-slsch- dumb-cramb- , Wagner laughed heartily over this explanation, and the driver, in spite of his greed, over which the composer made very merry in his letters, realized the handsome tip on which he had been speculating.

Thi3 was sent to the senate, and, if the vote was sufficiently large and representative, that body passed a resolution in which the too distinguished citizen was invited, in polite diplomatic terms, to take a few years of retirement abroad in other words, he WU3 officially exiled for the good of the state.

Any citizen of great wealth, or influence or who had a large personal following which might, in an. emergency, be used to the detriment of the state was liable to receive this distinguished mark of public consideration. It was a kind of primitive "recall," which had the advantage of being equally applicable to "ln3" and "outs."

TRAVELS WILY KING EDWARD I. GAS OUTLAWJKFITTE. fOId OF A COMET. Fooled the Rebellious Welsh With the Time Patriot Pirate of the Gulf of Mexico. 'HE WAS COURTLY AND BRAVE And as Mild a Mannered Man as Ever Scuttled Ship or Cut a Throat He Boldly Faced Andrew Jackson, Won His Friendship and Fought For Him. In the brave days of old Jean the patriot pirate of the gulf, ruled over a little outlaw kingdom of his own within a few miles of the city of New Orleans. A picturesque figure was Jean with a graceful, courtly delivery about him which made him popular .with many of the most estimable dwellers in New Orleans. Handsome, able, averse to the shedding of blood and even possessed of loyalty to the government whose excise laws he made it his business to break. Lafitte was French. He drifted to Louisiana in the early years of the nineteenth century and set up in piracy in the bay of Barataria, a sheltered harbor on the gulf of Mexico, protected by a lng island called Grand Terre, where Jean Lafitte dwelt in a house of brick, with broad and comfortable verandas, where one might loll at ease in a hammock, smoking and drinking lazily, while pirate chiefs filed in to bring reports of plunder taken and prospects ahead. No crude or common pirate was this Jean Lafitte. lie held a privateer's commission from the republic of Cartagena, which had been recently established In South America and has long since been forgotten, and this commission gave him the right to plunder Spanish ships. Lafitte's followers were a motley collection black, white, yellow and red restless and reckless rovers of the sea. Lafitte trafficked in silk and gold and negroes and sold his goods openly at auction even in the city of New Orleans. He was popular, too; there is no doubt of that Had it been otherwise he would not have been permitted to remain five years in Barataria. As early as 1S09 we find governors of Louisiana thundering against him, but Lafitte went calmly about his business. Occasionally a revenue officer was killed, in a brush with the pirates. Invariably Lafitte expressed his sorrow that bloodshed had become necessary. A case was brought against him in the federal court. The district attorney was a man named Grymes. Lafitte went to see Grymes, and the result of the La-fitte, I La-fitt- e, Prince of Wales. a lifelong struggle with the After Welsh, Edward I. of England sought to ascertain the cause of their constant rebellion and was informed that they would never be content until they had a prince of their own. The wily old monarch asked them if a prince born in Wales who could not speak a word of English would be satisfactory, and they received the offer with great enthusiasm, presuming that the king meant one of their own flesh and blood. His queen, about to give birth to a child, was hurried to the famous Caernarvon castle, where GOO years ago Edward II., the first prince of Wales, was born. Thereupon King Edward, carrying the newly born babe on the ramparts of the castle, announced to the multitude: "Here is your prince, born in your own country, who knows no word of English and who, I promise you, shall be reared by a Welsh foster-mothand shall learn your language. Accept you him as your prince?" In all the six centuries intervening the eldest son of the king of England has been invested and known as the Prince of Wales. In the year 1911 the present Prince of Wales and the future king of England was invested on the same spot as his predecessor GOO years ago. T.

Consumers of gas are usually so unfamiliar with the operation of a gas meter, simple as it is, that it will be surprising to many to learn thatsheep-ski- u plays an important part in the meter's work. It is used, according to Gas Logic, in connection with the diaphragms, or the two bellows from which the gas is drawn when the gas is lighted. A flock of 40,000 sheep is required each year to repair the gas meters used in Manhattan and Bronx boroughs, New York city. These skins cost about 40,000 a year. To repair the meters used throughout the United States in a single year about 300,000 sheep are required. Great care has to be taken in the selection of perfect skins before they are put into use. Each pelt, before It is accepted, is examined in a dark closet by a man who passes it over a table in which there is a hole about four Inches square, through which a light is thrown upward. By this means it can quickly be determined whether or not the sheep whose skin is being examined has ever had experience in bramble bushes. Thin places, made by pricking of the brambles or by the skin having been injured in the dressing process, render it unfit for use in a meter. MIDDLE NAMES. HEAT AND THE BODY. ,-.

People have not always been allowed the pleasure of having as many names as they wish. Indeed, 400 years ago not even a middle name was allowed in England. It was illegal. The old English law was definite and admitted of no infraction of its ruling. The only exception made to this ironclad regulation was in the case of persons of royal rank. If they really wished it they could boast a middle name, but woe to the person of ordinary rank who was sufficiently unwise or obstinate to insist on having more than two appellations. For the first offense he would very likely be tied to a whipping post and severely lashed. For a second offense he would endure some more lasting punishment, perhaps the removal of his thumbs or his ears. And if he still persisted in his stubborness he would be hanged. There is a case on record of a poor man, in all probability half demented, who insisted on signing four names every time he wrote his signature to any paper. Of course he passed through all the legal stages of punishment until he was finally hanged. Chicago Tribune. In England Crude but Effective Weapons Wound With Strips of Rawhide. Any one familiar with the construction of modern weapons of warfare and the high explosives used in the.u would naturally suppose a canni n made of wood would bo of little or :.o value as a weapon. Wooden cannons have been used with considerable success nrerti.i-le- ss in recent revolutions in Cuba, in Haiti and in the Dominican Republic. The wood used in the construction of these crude weapons is a very tough variety, having a twisted grain that curls about the log in such a way that to split the timber with the ordinary means is almost Impossible. The best trees are selected, and a piece of the log five or six feet in length and about one foot in diameter is cut. After the bark has been removed and the log made perfectly round it is swung up on a crude truss, and a hole Is burned into It from one end. The log is wound with strips of rawhide cut from the skin of a steer. When the cannon is covered with the strips of hide another layer Is wound on, and this is continued until the weapon has increased several inches in diameter. After the log is covered and the bore is finished the weapon is treated to a hot draft, which tends to contract the hide binding, which becomes almost as strong as wire. These crude cannon have been used with success in a number of instances, and it is astonishing the number of times they may be fired before they burst or become otherwise disabled. Harper's Weekly.

New York Post .T 1 I I .T Neither Fish, Flesh Nor Fowl, With Characteristics of AH Three. According to Macdonald, a Scotch naturalist of wide repute, the turtle is the strangest of all living things and the most unfathomable. It can live in the water as well as out of it and can seemingly go for indefinite lengths of' time without air or food or light It is neither fish nor flesh nor fowl, arid yet it has the characteristics of all three. As for its eating, it seems quite superfluous, for it can remain shut up In a barrel for a number of weeks and emerge at the end of the time apparently none the worse for the lack of food and light and air. The baby turtle seems also just as indifferent to its surroundings as its parents are. As soon as It comes forth from its egg it scuttles off to the sea. It has no one to teach or guide it In its brain seems implanted the idea that until its armor becomes hard it has no defense against hungry fish. And so it seeks shelter in gulf weed and feeds unmolested until its armor gets hard. By the time that it weighs twenty-fiv- e pounds, which occurs the first year, it knows that it is far from all danger, for after that no fis.li. however hungry or well armed with teeth, can interfere. The turtle immediately withdraws its head into its neck between the two shells, and all intending struggle in vain to impress it Exchange. de-vour- The Methods by Which Their Farrtouis Fabrics Are Produced. The lace of Venice has been celebrated for many centuries. It watf made originally by nuns within the walls' of convents for ecclesiastical garments. Then, with the fall of the Venetian republic, the convents were closed and the lace industry ceased te exist for an entire century. In 1S70 the Princess Margherlta, afterward queers of Italy, took measures to revive it, especially a3 a means of providing employment for Venetian women. At present there are several schools subsidized by the government in which the art is taught The pupils are women of all ages. Each sits on a low stool and holds a plump square cushion in her lap. Orr this enshion is pinned a strip of paper marked with the pattern to be followed, and into this pattern the nimble fingered worker sticks glass hcadecE pins, about which she twists her threads. From twenty to fifty shnttles depencT from all sides of the cushion, and these are thrown across and back with the rapidity of a typist handling the keys of her machine. The process is so simple that it look? like play, but the lace produced .represents thousands of dollars. The simple laces grow rapidly under the dexterous' fingers of the women, but the exquisite rose point and other similar sorts are evolved much more slowly.

If the amount of carbonic acid that the air now contains was diminished a little more than half the mean temperature all over the earth would, it is stated, drop about eight degrees.

Nearly all the Greenland glaciers and tongues from the internal ice cap terminate in vertical faces from 100 to 1,000 feet high, presenting facilities for investigation The vertical faces reveal pronounced stratification on the basal ice. even earth materials in the bases carried by the ice being arranged in layers. Fine laminations were seen twelve or twenty to an inch The layers are sometimes twisted and contorted and even "shoved" over each other. The glacier movement at the ice border is a foot per day to a foot per week.

To Straighten a Varped Board. The amateur craftsman is sometimes in doubt how he can flatten a boar that has warped. One way is to lay n thick mass of wet sawdust or a tblckl folded wet cloth on the concave side and expose the convex side to gentle beat or very dry air. The moisture enters the fibers of the wood of the eon cave side of the board and causes them to swell. Heat, on the other hand, or very dry air, removes the moisture from the convex side and causes the fibers to shrink. In consequence gradually flattens.
