Triplett, who was thorn and reared in Columbia, and who never lived elsewhere during his long years, four life of seventy-thre- e months and seven days, in the presence of his brother, sisters and other relatives, peacefully passed from this sinful world, to be at rest with his God. He had been a familiar figure about this town since he was old enough to walk the streets. He was not only well and favorably known In town, but bis acquaintance extended over the entire county of Adair. At the time of his death be was the oldest male native citizen of this place, and at no time did he ever lives elsewhere From youth to manhood and down to old age, he was clean in all his transactions. While upon his deathbed he ordered all accounts against him to be brought in, and they were promptly paid. He did not want any debts to come up against him af ter his earthly existence closed. He was the second son and second :hild of Lewis and Frances Triplett, n to the older rho were 'residents of the community. Whon a boy he was a great help to his mother in conducting household affairs, and after her death he was just as faithful to his sisters, lifting every burden from them he could. He never married, believing that it was his duty to remain at home with those "of same well-know- in is, having a capable, accommodating official.

He was never charged with an un- lawful act, believing that it was the duty of all good citizens to live uprightly and obey those in authority. In manner he was unassuming, standing for his rights and no more. He has certainly left a good name and it will be a long time before we again see his like. His character and manner of living is a priceless heritage to his brother Dr. James Triplett, and sisters, Mrs. W. T. Grant, of Sonora, Ey., who was with him in his last hours, and Miss Minnie Triplett, who vaa constantly at his bedside for days and nights before the closing scene, administering to his every want. The deceased made a profession of his faith in Christ many years ago and united with the Baptist Church, living a consistent Christian until God called him to a better world. The funeral services were . held at the residence Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock, conducted by his pastor, Rev Leslie J. B. Smith, and Eld. Z T. Williams, of the Christian Church. Both ministers paid high tribute to his Christian character and standing. At the close of the services all that was mortal of this good man was conveyed to the city cemetery and there laid to rest by the side of loved ones. , The floral designs were beautiful.

When the revolution came the work of the men was done, the nation was made Into a solid unit and the strength of the blade carriers was needed at plow and bench. , With this disbanding, an exchange explains, the trade of the swordmaker was also lost to the vast number lowing it, and with them, as the years passed, died the secrets of the warrior tools. Swords can be obtained In Japan today whose blades are so keen they can cut through a veil or a sofa cushion, and also can be driven through a bar of Iron, provided the wlelder has the strength. Others have blades covered with a beautiful and intricate tracery that disappears and reappears at odd times, and no one can solve the "why" of It One moment the blade is as smooth and as a mirror and the next the design leaps out before the eye of the startled beholder and can even be felt by sensitive fingers. Yet other blades are colored red, blue, silver or gold, and while seemingly an alloy, a chemical analysis shows nothing but steel.

Can you Imagine a ship without a nail or rivet In all ltst hull? Do you recollect the visit to the shipyards and the army of men nailing huge timbers to the skeleton frame of a ship? And, over in the next yard, the swarm of men hammering the white hot rivets in the great plates of a battle ship?

On the farm where my grandmother lived it was the custom to begin Sunday on Saturday night at sundown. The "hired man" came In from the chores, grandmother put away all her work in the kitchen, and then the entire family gathered In the "best room" and studied the Sunday-schoo- l lesson, or had a reading from the Bible, led by grandfather, and all the family retired not later than d o'clock. In the morning, after doing none but the absolutely necessary chores on the farm, the team that had not been used the day before was hitched up to d wagon and the enthe big tire family including the "hired" help, went to church. There was preaching service in the forenoons and then we adjourned to a lunch for ourselves and the team. Then we went In to a Sunday-schoo- l service, and after an Interval there was another preaching service, after which we hitched up and drove slowly back to the farm. That was the way Sunday was kept in western New York a little more than 50 years ago. I can remember hearing my mother say that when she was a girl In this same New York state village, she was not allowed to walk except to the cemetery and back, on Sunday, and was not allowed to read any books except the Bible and "Fox's Book of Martyrs."

Not only are the finger prints of every human being different but the position of the bones of the fingers, and also the shape of the nails are differstuent. Doctor Beclere, a dent of radiography, utilizes this fact in a new method for Identifying criminals. The method consists In making y photograph of the hand, an showing the bones and the fingernails. Ordinarily such a photograph would not show the flesh, but in order that the record may be complete the fingers are soaked in an opaque salt, by means of which all the lines and marks are clearly shown. Doctor Beclere considers that the possibility afforded by his discovery of keeping a record of nails as well as of finger prints should prove of the greatest use In identifying criminals. well-know- n X-ra- achievement of endurance and to his credit.

Radio Control for Airplanes. There can be doubt that if the war had lasted a few months longer we would have witnessed the leading armies employing great fleets of airplanes controlled by radio means. The United States army had progressed pretty far along this line when the armistice was declared. The same can be said for Germany.

Old American Glass. Grace Miller White The books of few authors ever achieve a sale of 1,000,000 copies. Fewer still are the authors who live to see such popularity. Yet this talented daughter of the Empire state has lived to see it and the end is not yet, for she continues to write and sales show no diminishment. It all started with "Tess of the Storm Country." That story made the fortune of a magazine for women which ran it serially. Moving picture producers and players have also gained fame and fortune through it. A later romance, "The Shadow of the Sheltering Pines," has another sweet, charming, pathetic little heroine very much like "Tess." We propose that our readers shall become acquainted with her and shall reproduce the Btory serially. Keep your eyes open for the first installment. 1 XL--J a:m I The Pennsylvania museum announces a find of old American glass. One thousand specimen's have been dug up near Alloway, N. J. The field where the specimens were found was once the site of the old Wlstar Glass works, founded nearly two hundred years ago by Caspar Wistar, who was of Austrian extraction and titled. The specimens found were for the most part fragments of bottle and window glass, of which there have not been many specimens until now. The museum Is now making a study of the types of glass that were produced In the early days of Pennsylvania and New Jersey. The first glass to be manufactured in this country was that of a Virginia company located at Jamestown, but the first produced successfully was that of Alloway, then known as Wlstarburg.

Some historians, notably Azell Ames, who has complied "The Mayflower and Her Log" from original sources, assert that the shipper of the Mayflower was Capt. Thomas Jones, a rough seadog who had led a more or less piratical career on the high seas. Be- 3 f Pi The Parly of the People. i If the Democratic party would tween Capt Jones and Sir Ferdinando Gorges and doubtless Weston, they allege that a plot existed whereby the Pilgrims were deliberately stolen from the London Virginia" company and - planted on territory outside of the Virfginia grant The maneuvering about Cape Cod, according to this interpretation, was simply a part of the plot to discourage the Pilgrims from settling near the Hudson, as evidently they Intended when they left Holland. The exact Identity of "Master Jones" Is not clear. Historians of the Massachusetts Historical society say that the skipper was one Christopher Jones, a trustworthy man, entirely different Xrom Capt Thomas Jones, who was known to have a checkered career during his voyages to Virginia and other colonies. The course of American colonial history may have been greatly changed when the Pilgrims encountered the shoals and unfavorable winds off Cape Cod, but this bit of destiny can be easily exaggerated. It Is sufficient here to relate that the Pilgrim colony was founded outside the jurisdiction of the London Virginia company. PRODUCES COTTON IN COLORS Southerner Has Succeeded in Growing Green and Brown and Is Experimenting on Black. A. W. Brabham has submitted to the Cotton exchange of Savannah four samples of colored cotton light brown, dark brown, light green and dark green. They are the results of years of experimentation. Mr. Brabham says that other colors will appear when a number of cotton plants in his garden that are not yet fully grown begin to bear. The botanist has not yet been able to produce black cotton, but he says he will do so in time. It would have appeared this year, he contends, If a d package of the seeds of a cotton, mailed to him by a botanist In Delhi, India, had not gone astray. Mr. Brabham has sent for another package of these seeds, and he Is convinced that If he crosses them with certain of the cottons he has already grown the result will be black. Luther Burbank once told Mr. Brabham that he would produce black cotton for a million dollars. Mr. Brabham replied that he thought he could do It more cheaply, and thereupon started his experiments. blue-tinte- learn one lesson as the result of its recent 'disastrous defeat that lesson is that it must depend upon the people and not the interests to elect its candidate for the Presidency. The only States the Democrats have any reasonable hope of carrying are those States in which the people, and not the interests, control, Those in which the interests, or, by another name, Big Business, are in the saddle have, almost without exception, been found voting for the Republican candidate for the Presidency, and they always will be found voting for the Republican candidate, whoever he may be. We can recall the promises held out by the supporiera of Governor Cox during the days when he was a candidate for the Democratic nomination for the Presidency. They said that if he was nominated he was not only sure to carry Ohio, but that he was equally certain to carry New York and New Jersey and possibly Illinois. That belief upon their part was based on Governor's supposed wet tendencies and the fact that he was said to be close to Boss Nugent, of New Jersey; Boss Murphy, of New York, and Boss Brennan, of Illinois, all of whom supported him at the San Francisco convention. Largely upon this belief, Governor Cox was nominated, and when the election was held, the returns showed that he was not only beaten in those States, but he was overwhelmed in each of them. The State that Boss Murphy was to deliver to the Democratic party gave Senator Harding a popular majority of over a million votes. The State that Buss Brennan was to swing for Governor Cox added another eight hundred thousand to Mr. Harding's majority, (while Boss Nugent's State, smaller than the other two, went four hundred thousand for the Republican nominee. These Presidential three States not only went Republican, but their majorities were twice or three times as large in proportion to the number of votes as many States in the central and far West, in which Governor Cox had no spe- cial strength, and in which no particular reliance was placed when he was nominated.

But his experience with women had taught him to understand their coquetry, and he knew that her refusal was not sincere. One morning when he telephoned she said that she would be glad to see him, but she was engaged for the day. The next morning she was sorry to have to miss him again, but she did not have a minute free. And the next day she wished that he had telephoned sooner, for she had just made an engagement Would he please call again"? His experience with women taught him that her refusal was sincere.

To win the election in 1924 or 192S, or any other year, the Democratic party must make its appeal to the people and not to the interests. It must nominate a man, not because of his friendship for the. party bosses in Illinois, New Jersey and New York, bu t rather its candidate should be a man like President Wilson who is opposed to those bosses and to whom those bosses are alike opposed. That is the only type of man that can appeal to the great masses of the people of this country, and in those masses lies Democracy's only a a I The News is not disposed to criticise Governor Cox's nomination, but it cannot be denied that through it, in centering the parFrom this reservation, and apparent- ty's hope upon the States domly the waters Immediately adjacent inated by Big Business, the Demto It. white hunters are to be excluded : and those who have begun opera-tIo- ocratic party forfeited any espec on Banks Island will he ousted. ial strength that it might have Tli it the resources needed to sustain gaineel from the farming States Eskimo life will be preserved. of the West, without being comWelsh Belief in Witchcraft Witchcraft in Wales is still in exist- pensated in the smallest measence, as was shown recently by a case ures in the East. which was tried at the Glamorgan .A Welsh farmer and his family, In this regard it was a repeti-- . who w e suffering from a skin disease sent for a local wise woman, be- tion of the excursion which the lieving they were all cursed.

The result of that election whould seem to have been chart enough to guide the party in the future, but in 1916 the way was made even more clear. In that year, with the Democratic party in the ascendency, in control of both branches of Congress, and with its magnificent record in construction, .President Wilson, an Eastern man himself, was the nominee and yet in that campaign he did not carry a doubtful state East of the Mississippi River except Ohio and New Hampshire, Illinois. New York and New Jersey, as per custom, gave enormous majorities against the Democratic nominee and Mr. Wilson's election was accomplished only by the marvelous appeal which his candidacy made to the people 4of the West. If the Democratic party had relied upon the East in that campaign President Wilson, would have been as badly a defeated as Governor Cox.

The Clemenceau ministry was always able to subdue the opposition that Beveral times threatened its existence but the hardy old Premier was decisively beaten in his recent race for the Presidency of France. President Wilson, who guided America through the war, and was its spokesman at the Peace Conference, was repudiated by his countrymen both in the elections of 1918 and 1920. And now comes Venizelos, generally regarded as one of the ablest minds at Versailles, who meets the same fate at the hands of the people he has been serving. Surely there was none who did so much for Italy as Orlando; who had a greater part in France's victory than Clemenceau; who lent character and weight to Greece's aspirations more than Venizelos; who could have led America better than Wilson, and yet each of them at the close of a great struggle, to which every impulse of their heart and mind was dedicated is cast out by an unmindful people.

It shows in illustration the Fordson Tractor at actual work along some ninety different lines of activity. It showsin these illustrations the wonderful versatility and utility of the Fordson Tractor. Shows it to be, beyond all question, the one bit of machinery that is a necessity, not only on the farm but along many lines of commercial business ; especially does it show up the Fordson as a valuable servant on the farm. With it the farmer is releaved of th3 hard work ; because he can take advantage of the weather in preparing his seed ted ; he can do it at the right time , the same is true when it comes to harvesting. It solves to a great extent, the problem of the scarcity of labor. With its wonderful, reliable power,it brings to the farm home all the conveniences, in the way of running water in the house, electric lights, operation of the washing machine, churning, separating the cream from the milk ; it assums and takes to itself the drudgery of farm life both in the field and in the house and it is only a matter of a few years until it will be as universal in its service on the farm as is the farmer himself. It will become a part of farm life ; a beneficial part ; a profitable part.
