Telegrams from Hopkinsville, received last Thursday night, and' di- rected to Mr. John W. Flowers, stat-hat Mr. W. A. Rickman, the fath er of Dr. W. J. Flowers' wife and also an uncle of Mrs. Flowers had just died and that Mrs. Hickman, Mrs. Flowers' mother, was very low. AH the parties were victims of flu, terminating in pneumonia. This is certainly a trying hour on Mrs Flowers', and she has the sympathy of every body in Columbia 4n the sorrowing ordeal. As soon as the news of the illness of Mr. and Mrs. Hickman came, Dr. W. J. Flowers and wife left immediately to be at their bedaide. We trust that favorable news will come from Mrs. Hickman. comfort Mrs. Flowers in her grief, almost unbearable. In this connection we want to express the sympathy of Columbia for Miss Nina Hickman,-sisteof Mrs. Flowers, and n who is in Columbia, having taught in the High School here. She and Mrs. Flowers are the only children. The burden is heavy, but God can comfort his children. Later At the time of the above deaths Mrs. Rickman, the mother of Mrs. Flowers, was dangerously ill, and Saturday morning a message came from Mrs. Flowers to Mr. John W. Flowers which read: "Mother passed peacefully away this morning." This last death brought additional sorrow to the .two sorrowing daughters, but they are strong in mind, and sustained by Christian fortitude, they will bear the great trouble that has been laid upon them. As stated above this whole town is in their sympathy, and it is being expressed in all homes. May--God Rev. L. T. Barger Dead. Wejt Point, Miss.

These three possibilities alone remained, but the first two seemed quite impossible. He was used to Indian foray, but this act bore no resemblance to the work of savages on the warpath. There had been no attempt to plunder, or destroy. The very fact that the ponies remained undisturbed convinced him that this was no deed of Indian raiders. That It might have been white outlaws was not quite so easily dismissed. There were desperate meir hiding out yonder in the Bad Lands, but lie never had known of their venturing to attack any settler, except occasionally to run off cattle on the range.

She surveyed the scene, as revealed by the yellow flame of the lamp, her heart beating faster. This was to be her home. She had come feere as mistress. It mattered not so much what it was now, bufe what she should make of it. Her slender form straightened with new determination, "There was yet another door, and she looked out through it into a small lean-tthe lamp held high over her liead. This was evidently the kitchen, containing, as it did, a small cook stove, a sort of roughly built cloet, and sink, the latter stacked with unwashed dishes. An armful of split wood lay on the floor, and a half slab of bacon hung to a nail. Olga gave vent to another laugh, bat this time there was no hint of hysteria In It., She had found herself. Dressed still in the long duster, she set down the lamp on a small table, and dropping upon her knees, swiftly kindled a fire In the stove. As the wood, began to crackle cheerfully, she earched the closet for materials, to discover some dishes yet unused, together with remnants of food sufficient for her purpose. There was '.sugar, condensed milk, a few "knarfy potatoes, a small sack of flour, nd a half can of coffee. She dumped these out on the table, and began humming a tune, as she added the slab of bacon to these treasures. She was too busy by now to give another thought io the dirt and disorder about her. Shelby was kept outside considerably longer than he had anticipated. The buckskin, in spite of a sixty-mil- e journey, retained vlciousness enough to. kick the lantern out of the Kid's hand and smash It Into smithereens, ihus compelling the two to work In darkness. Macklln, unacquainted with the surroundings, was of little use, and most of the work had to be done by Shelby in person. When it was all over with both men were sweating profusely, tired and angry, the Kid cursing everything from the creation of the world. Shelby, suddenly remembering the girl left alone In the house all this time, lost the last grip van his temper. "Shut up!" he barked savagely. T?e had just enough of that. What SIti you expect anyway a reception committee an' a banquet? Come on to, now; we'll hustle up some grub. Here, you might as well tote a few of . ihose things along with you."

He was remembering what that Interior looked like, and wondering how she was taking such a He could not but con irast the dirt and disorder to which kft had brought her with the immaculate cleanliness of the shack where afce lived In Ponca. The memory ttAde him half afraid to go in and face her eyes. He lifted the latch hesitatingly, the bundles on the other arm piled to his chin, and stepped across the threshold.

What hadbecome of the fellow all this time? He was nowhere in sight when Shelby retraced his steps up the path. Could it be that the Kid was the one guilty of this deed? If so, what was his object? Not robbery, surely, for the place had not been ransacked, or anything removed from ids pockets. Yet surely this was not Indian work ; it bore no resemblance to a savage raid. The questions were unanswerable; no mental effort gave him any clue, yet his strength was rapidly cominsr back, and with it a grim, determined anger, which urged him into action.

Macklln was seemingly busy at the t$sk assigned htm, the lantern hung to the broken branch of a convenient tree, lighting his path. Without even speaking, the ranchman passed by down the steep path leading toward the stream below. He was some time in completing his task, and, when he finally emerged once more from the stable, the only gleam of light he could perceive above came through the log chinks of the cabin. He wondered what had become of Macklin, yet gave the matter no special thought as he toiled slowly up the path, his mind more deeply Interested in the reception awaiting him within. d He passed close enough to the to assure himself that his orders had been executed, and, believing the fellow had probably the house for some purpose, passed on directly to the front door. No one was in thf main room, nor in the chamber behind. They remained exactly as he had left them. The silence startled him, and he advanced swiftly toward the kitchen, where the light still burned, visible through the open door. It also was deserted, the dirty dishes yet setting on the table untouched. Good God! what was the meaning of this? What had occurred?

A tax of 2& per cent on the undivided proGts of corporations as a part of the soldiers' bonus revenue program was agreed by a house ways und means subcommittee. A slight increase in parcel post rates to yield a total of $20,000,000 a year also was understood to have been agreed upon. The subcommittee decided against a tax on bunk checks. The program includes: One cent n gallon on gasoline, estimated to ield $70,000,000. Twenty-fiv- e cents per horsepower The Interior Journal has received a copy of the speech made on the bill in Congress by Representative Gilbert. He made some remarks, to which we referred briefly a week or two ago, which evidentally "got under the hide" of some of the Republican bretheren. Here is one quotation from his speech of interest to us here in Kentucky, because we didn't know about it previously: "Here in the Capital of our country Negroes attend the official receptions, social functions. We find every human bureau and every department of public service filled with them. They occupy positions of importance, frequently positions of authority over white men and women, wherein we must come in contact on terms of more or less intimacy in the discharge of our public duties. Many of our assistants, secretaries, and helpers are women , and in order for them to perform their services to us it is necessary for them to come into the closest contact with the Negroes holding these important anti-lynching department positions. My people would be surprised to learn that Negroes served as jurors wherein the rights of white people are litigated; they would hardly that they are judges on the be-li- ve The Times Or Post AND THE NEWS ONE YEAR FOR S6.00 The Above Proposition for the Louisville Papers Does not Applj to those Living in the Xorporate Limits of Columbia.

Negroes, where we have to come in contact with them as equals and often with as our superiors in the discharge of our duties, cannot take refuge in in such chimerical distinctions. We see the effect here in Washington, where Negroes have so much political equality that they assume social equality with a few and social superiority over the rest. "The folly of making a Negro a judge, which you have done here in Washington, and then saying he is not socially equal with the white persons who are forced to call "Your honor" and who has the authority to punish, is apparent. No, there is no honesty and sincerity in your position and no such distinction can stand practical application. I am opposed to Negroes holding any office, where, by reason of contact, they might be led to hope for political or social equality. I will not indulge in the insincerity which I am condemning in others and will say frankly I am opposed to Negroes holding any office of any kind." And in that declaration Judge Gilbert voiced the sentiment of his district, without regard to politics, among white voters.
