B. has issued a call requesting the people of Kentucky to volunteerily work the roads for two days and has designated Friday and Saturday, Oct. 24th and 25th. It is expected that this work be done under the direction of the Road Engineer, his assistants and Foreman. Therefore, I write this to urge you to help get every thing in readiness for those two days. Where there is no Foreman on a road I urge that the Assistant Engineer now proceed to get some public spirited citizen to act in that capacity for this special occasion- - Let us thoroughly organize the county for this work, and 1 would here suggest that we pick out some bad hill or other piece of bad n for special road in each attention on those days.

Cowan, from prison, their family from disgrace and for the sake of his brother's un- born child has gone for naught After allowing himself to be convicted and sentenced to three years in prison for crimes committed by his brother, Joseph, the latter has abandoned his family in Boston, neglected his father and mother and has committed still more crimes in Missouri. He is now under arrest in St. Joseph and has confessed his crimes in Massachusetts. The case is one of the most unusual in the history of Massachusetts and has been called to the attention of Gov. Foss and his council. The crimes in which Robert A. Cowan were implicated were committed in Boston. He had been home on a vacation and desired to go back to New York to return to work. Having no cash he asked his brother, Joseph, for some money. Joseph responded with two watches and a ring, which he had stolen, and suggested that his brother pawn these and say nothing about it. Robert was arrested after mak ing the pawn and was accused of burglary. Following the arrest, Joseph urged that for the sake of the family name, his position in society, the feelings of his wife and honor of his unborn babe,' Robert allow himself to be convicted. Then Joseph abandoned Ijs people, neglected his parents and refused to pay Robert $3 a week which he had agreed to do while he waf in prison. Subscribe for the Adair $100 a County News. year.

Westminster hall is quite five centuries old, possibly more, for Richard II.. who is credited with its building, was really little more than a repairer of "Rufus' roaring hall," as Pope described it. The hall, so intimately interwoven with the history of England, has, according to Fuller, the distinction of possessing "cobwebless beams." They were, so a popular tradition affirmed, of Irish oak, in which it was impossible for spiders to live and spin their webs. Cunningham tells us that the roof "is of chestnut and very fine, the finest of its kind in this country." It was the meshes of the law, if not. spiders webs, one might have looked for here of old, for during long centuries England's courts of law were held in Westminster hall. London Chronicle.

The lucky man was Colonel William Yorke Moore, a British officer, who rode his horse in the dark over a sheer precipice 247 feet in height and came out alive! It seems incredible that such a fearful experience should result in anything but instant death, yet here are the facts, which once again confirm the adage that truth Is more wonderful than fiction: Colonel Moore, who commanded the troops at Dominica, lost his way one evening after sunset. In complete darkness he endeavored to make his way home. Two or three times he had difficulty In making his horse cross obstacles, and at last they came to something that the horse would not face. Colonel Moore was a fearless rider. Again and again he rode his horse at full speed against the unknown obstacle, but in vain. At last, urged fiercely by whip and spur, the terrified animal, with a snort of terror, cleared the low hedge for such the obstruction proved to be and went over the cliff. Colonel Moore says that during his flight on horseback through the air every event of his whole life seemed to pass in a luminous panorama before him. Suddenly there came a terrific concussion, which deprived him of his senses and left him with his legs in the sea and his body on the rocks, apparently dead. He must have lain there stunned for some hours, for when at last the lapping water and the cool breezes restored him the moon was shining brightly In midheaven, and its beams fell upon the upturned, glittering shoes of hi? gallant horse, which lay dead and mangled beside him. As soon as he had collected his scattered wits Colonel Moore coolly began to examine himself to ascertain what injuries he had sustained. He found that he was severely cut about the body and head, that his right ankle was dislocated and that his bck was benumbed or paralyzed by the concussion of his fall. When the sun rose it shone upon his bare, bleeding head with such intolerable heat that, as a protection from Its rays, he tied his cotton handkerchief about his forehead. Above hla head projected the two ends of the knotted bandage stained crimson with his blood. After lying in horrible pain for several hours he spied a boatful of natives rowing toward the spot where he lay. As they came near he hailed them in a faint voice, but the moment they saw the ghastly figure of the colonel, with his bloody headdress, they set up a yell and rowed away as if 20,000 fiends were after them. After some time a single black man came clambering over the rocks, intent on catching fish. He was within a few yards of the colonel when the latter hailed him. The moment the negro caught sight of the bleeding head and the blood stained bandage he, too, uttered a fearful yell, flung down his rod and line and scrambled off over the rocks as fast as his feet and'hands would carry him. The colonel now began to resign himself to the prospect of a lingering death, but fortunately his English servant, alarmed at his master's absence, went In search of him and, following the horse's tracks, at last came lo the edge of the precipice. The sudden disappearance of the hoof prints near the low hedge fence onvinced him that an accident had happened. He ran to the barracks and got out a boat, which a party of soldiers rowed to the foot of the cliff. Very tenderly and carefully the sol-- , iliers lifted the colonel into the boat and brought him back to the barracks. For some months he lay in great pain and danger, but in time the paralyzed muscles of his back recovered, and eventually he was restored to complete health. Not even the slightest touch of lameness remained to remind him of his fall. of Tours, aimed at something seen indistinctly in a thicket, a human cry was beard. The party rushed to the point whence it proceeded and found a young girl of sixteen lying on the ground bleeding from a bullet wound In her side. From the opposite direction a man came hurrying, and when he "saw what had happened he took the girl up in his arms and, shaking his fist at the huntsmen, cursed them for what had been done. 'Is it thus that you overrun our peaceful fields, you nobles who never toil, but feed on what we common people produce? And, not content with wasting the fruits of our toll, you ruthlessly shoot our children without taking the trouble to discover that they are not birds. Walt, messieurs! The day will come when we will crush you under our heels!" "It was an accident," replied the marquis. "Here; take this." throwing him a golden louis. "Were it not for your threats I would make it ten times as much. Come, messieurs. Let us go on." The party proceeded on their way. but had not gone a dozen yards before , the coin was sent spinning past the i ear of the marquis. One gentleman, a , young fellow of twenty, remained be-- , hind. Kneeling beside the girl, he stanched the blood with his cambric ' handkerchief, then said to her father: "Let us carry her to her home. I am a student in the Paris School of Medicine. I will see what I can do for her." Henri Duriac did not leave the home of Antoine Gamier until the daughter, Lizette, was out of danger. Indeed, he alone saved her life. Three weeks had elapsed when the young doctor said to Garnier: "The crisis has passed. Any physician can now attend to the dressing ol the wound." "Doctor," replied the father, "why have you taken this trouble? You are a noble." "Yes, but 1 am a man." "You have given me the life of my daughter. Some day I may repay you." "I do not need money, and I trust that I may never need your assistance," replied the young surgeon. Eighteen years later came the reign of terror. Henri Duriac, now Count Duriac, was about to be arrested, but succeeded in escaping across the border. Count Duriac had been married, and Ills wife and her daughter, Louise, were about to follow him when they received a warning not to attempt to ! I C. D.

Duriac, though beloved by all the province in which she lived, was at last arrested and with her daughter taken to the conclergerle in Paris. One day they were led out to be tried. For what? For being of noble birth. A man sat behind a rude table, ready to act as judge and jury to send prisoners to the guillotine. Mme. Duriac and Louise sat waiting their turn, watching the people who were pronounced "traitors to France" marched away to die. A portly man, who showed by his dress and bearing that he was an aristocrat, stood before this self constituted tribunal. "Your name?" asked the judge. "I am the Marquis of Tours." The judge flushed. "Do you remember, marquis, hunting for birds and shooting a maiden?" The marquis paled, but said nothing. "Traitor to France!" said the Judge. "Take him away!" In half an hour the marquis head rolled Into the basket "These," said a gendarme, "are the Countess Duriac and her daughter." The judge started. "Madame," he said, "you are accused of being a. traitor to France. What is your defense?" "I make no defense. Defense would bo useless." "H'm!" said, the judge. "Take these women to the little jail in Rue St Jacques and bring them here tomorrow for sentence. The executioner is too busy today to attend to them." That night a muffled figure appeared before the little jail in Rue St Jacques and presented an order for Mme. and Louise Duriac. Throwing a mantle over each to conceal her features and especially her attire of a gentlewoman, he led them through some of the narrow streets in Paris. Stopping suddenly beside a carriage and opening the door, he bade them enter.

Youth's Compar At-i- s Easy Method by Which One Hospital Prevents Their Spread. The power of a small glass partition to prevent the spread of infectious diseases 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 partitiona about five feet high are placed between the beds. And the effect is really as tonishlng. In one bed may be a child with pneumonia, in the next one with scarlet fever, in the next one with Cerebrospinal measles. meningitis, 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.

Whatever the form of madness, tears are conspicuous by their absence, as much hi 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 find no relief In tears. Pearson's Weekly. No Actually A Boy and a Thousand Dollars. A New York judge gave his son $1,000, telling him to go to college and J.

It was admitted during the session of the guardians that the bvack doctor's qualifications were better than those of the other candicates, and some of the guardians wanted to treat him as 'a brother. ' The majority of the guardians, however, supported Dr. Robert Capes, who opposed the appointment of the colored physician. In doing so he said: "In plain English, he is a nigger, and as such is not a suilable doctor for a post of this kind. The poor are a great deal more fastidious than people imagine.
