"I hear it from everybody. You have built towns and railroads and developed mines and carried the twentieth century into new outposts. You have given work to thousands. But you go so fast I can't keep step with you. I am one of the little folks for whom laws were made." "Then I'll make a new code for you," he said, smiling. "Just do as I say and everything will come out right." Faintly her smile met his. "My grandmother might have agreed to that. But we live in a new world for women. They have to make their own decisions. I suppose that is a part of the penalty we pay for freedom." Diane came into the room and Macdonald turned to her. "I have just been telling Sheba that I am going to marry her that there is no escape for her. She had better get used to the idea that I intend to make her happy." Tho older cousin glanced at Sheba and laughed with a touch of embarrassment. "Whether she wants to be happy or not, O Cave Man?" "I'm going to make her want to." Sheba fled, but from tho door she flung back her challenge. "I don't think so." Macdonald kept his word to Sheba. He used his influence to get Elliot released, and with a touch of cynicism quite characteristic went on the bond of his rival. An Information was filed against the field agent of the land department for highway robbery and attempted murder, but Gordon went about his business just as if he were not under a cloud. Xone the less, he walked the streets a marked man. Women and children looked at hlra curiously and whis pered as he passed. The sullen, hostile eyes of miners measured him silently. In the states the fight between the coal claimants and their foes was growing more bitter. The muckrakers were busy, and the sentiment outside had settled so definitely against granting the patents that the national administration might at any time jettison Macdonald and his backers as a sop might be forced to resign his This was a blow to the coal claimants, and the Sun charged in vitriolic language that the reports of Elliot were to blame. He was, the newspaper claimed, an enemy to all those who had come to Alaska to earn an honest living there. 'He was a snake in the grass, and as such every decent man ought to hold him in scorn. Elliot read this just as he was leaving for the Willow Creek camp. He thrust the paper impatiently into his coat pocket and swung to the saddle. Why did they persecute him? He had told nothing but the truth, nothing not required of him by the simplest, elemental honesty. Yet he was treated as an outcast and a criminal. The injustice of it was beginning to rankle. He was temperamentally an optimist, but depression rode with him to the gold camp and did not lift from his spirits till lie started back next day for Kusiak. The news had been flashed by wire all over the United States that he was a crook. His friends and relatives could give no adequate answer to the fact that an indictment hung over his head In Alaska he was already convicted by public opinion. In the late afternoon, while Gordon was still fifteen miles from Kusiak, his horse fell lame. He led it limping to the cabin of some miners. There were three of them, and they had been drinking heavily from a jug of whisky left earlier in the day by Gordon was in two the stage-driveminds whether to accept their surly permission to stay for the night, but the lameness of his horse decided him.

DANGER SIGNAL!! MR. STANLEY: that Gilbert, State Superintendent of Public instruction, a copy of which we have been recently favored with, is a statement of potent facts, and evidence of splendid progress in the affairs of public education in Kentucky during the past two years. The legislation referred to in this report has already accomplished great good and will continue to do so for the children, and for the public schools. If the people and the press of Kentucky only knew what "sweat and blood," the man who holds this unenviable position, is compelled to shed, in his honest efforts for the children and people of Kentucky against the odds imposed by State House demagogs and machine politicians, a greater interest would be manifested in, and a greater support given these workers for Kentucky's emancipation from the scourges of political intrigue, political graft, and political illiteracy; in fact, the whole condemned" family, that stands in the way of Kentucky's progress.

The meeting on Saturday was a very beneficial one and much interest was manifested in the plan of purchasing fertilizer. At this meeting an order for fifty tons of fertilizer was made up. This will go to the farmer at the lowest wholesale price that can be secured by the State Department of Agriculture. A local dealer will be selected by the farmers to handle this and future orders, and will be allowed 50cts per ton for his services.

P. Hurt, of this vicinity, and others that we- might mentioned, have been forced to quit the industry on account of the prevalence of the sheep killing dog. How long will the farmers of Kentucky continue to sacrifice thousands of dollars each year in the sheep raising industry in order that a few thousand mongrel curs may be maintained? Let us start a "kill the cur" campaign if it brings on a civil war. It would probably end in the killing off of a number of the miserable cusses who insist on keeping sheep killing dogs but the country would be benefitted in the end. - UL One-To- ."SSAL CAR Truck Chassis, $600 f. o. b.

The three Hospitals for the Insane, Children's Home Society, Kentucky School for the blind, Confederate Home, Kentucky School for the Deaf, were visited by a legislative committee for the first time in six years. Senator Antle was a member of the visiting committee. All of these institutions are asking increas ed appropriations on account of the increased cost of necessaries. By the way, the present session of the General Assembly, judging from present indications, will appropriate more money than any session held in recent years. Government costs a lot of money. Salaries of officers constitute a considerable item, bub not as much in proportion to the whole, as we sometimes suppose. We spend nearly 810,000,000 a year. You might remove half the clerks, assistants and stenographers in the State house, and we could scarcely tel any difference. However, this is nol excuse for extravagance, and there ought to be some sort of direct supervision of all public expenditures. A budget commission is proposed. It may help. However, it is the opinion of the writer that a really effective budget system will not be provided by this session. A start, may be made now and later on some one may rise to the occasion and work out a budget plan, together with a system of supervision that will be really effective. The eight hour law is one of the important problems before this session. Few people expected it to come up during war time. Many who are in favor of the eight hour day think it might be better to defer legislation till the war is over. It is a big question. A correct decision of it would seem to require a careful survey of labor conditions not only in this State but in other States. The Common Schools and State Aid for roads get somewhat the worst of it in a bill passed by the House, known as the Hamilton bill. The old law and tiie 1917,special session acts gave the Common School fund 26 cents out of each 55 cents collected, and the road fund live cents out of 55 cents. This is changed so that the roads will get three cents out of 40 and the schools 18 cents out of 40, a loss to the roads, this year, of 5127,000 and a loss to the common school fund of $181,000. The Phelps amendment calling for 19 cents for school and 3 J cents for roads was defeated by a vote of 52 to 3S Observer. $ $ $ $ $ PUBLIC Kimble Feed Barn, Russell SALE BEGINS A.T 25 HEAD OF HORSES TO BE SOLD AT AUCTION Springs, 3?.
