His addrees was directed in the main to tobacco growers, advising them to enter the pool. It was one of the best speeches, delivered in the most captivating manner, we ever heard. The speaker was not delivering an address lor anything that might come to him, in any way, except as a grower of tobacco. He convinced thQ large audience that he was Interested in the farmers and his products. He is a fluent speaker, but his logic made his address the more acceptable. He is a gentleman who stands high in Kentucky, a lawyer of ability, and a farmer who grows tobacco. He is In sympathy with growers who have in the past been getting but a small price for their crops, and he wants to see that they get full value for growing this produce. Again we want to say that it was a splendid address, delivered by a most entertaining gentleman. At the close of his address a large number of farmers who had not gone Into the pool, signed. It now looks like we will get a receiving house, and that the growers will get the full value of their tobacco. It is not out of place to say that) Mr. G. R Reed, of this place, who ia a grower, is' tne President of the Adair County organization. You all know him to be a man of character, and is especially Interested in the welfare of the growers of Adair county. If he did not beiieva that it was to the interest of the growers to enter the organization, he would not ask it. . 1 4 well-know- Examination.

He then gallops after the quarry, accompanied by several other riders all intent on winning the honor which goes to the "first spear." The Indian boar is a large and powerful beast, standing some 40 inches in height, and armed with formidable tusks, which he uses to good purpose. He is the craftiest of animals and the finest of fighters. After him go the sportsmen. They have no chance of catching him for some time, for in his first burst the any horse.

A hot summer has often been known to drive herrings to find cooler waters at a distance. Some years ago, a fearful storm raged along the eastern coast of North America. After it had subsided, the sea was strewn with millions of tite, a fish like a cod, but attaining a weight of 50 pounds or more. A vessel was sent to discover the cause of the strange phenomenon. It plowed straight ahead for 150 miles, and estimated that an area of 5,000 square miles was covered with dead fishes. It was discovered that the storm had brought Icebergs In Its train, and the consequent great cold had proved too much for the fish, accustomed as they were to warmer waters. The cod has an objection to sudden changes of climate, and if put in colder water than that to which It Is accustomed, will he numbed.

To that question historians, anthropologists and just plain, curious people have tried to find an answer without success. Many believe that they are descendants of the lost ten tribes of Israel; still others think they are the children of Ham condemned to perpetual wanderings. They have been considered Spaniards, Assyrians and Egyptians, though they are different in body and mind from all of these. The opinion generally held Is that they are Hindus. They have the dark complexion, the same thin lips, straight and proportionate nose, brilliant eyes and white teeth of the Hindus. Their language, such of it that Is not gypsy adaptation of the language of the people they live among, shows similarity to Hindu dialects. Besides, their habits and customs link them with the fortune telling, mystical habits of India. GRASS GROWS ON BROADWAY Fine Plot Flourishes Under Thousands of Feet in the Metropolis of the Nation.

GIFT OF MAXIMILIAN SWING WITH RINGING BELLS A Men of Nerve Required to Call the Faithful of Spanish City to Their Duties. In ordinary circumstances bell ringing is a peaceful occupation to which .white-hairevenerable men seem ideally suited. But the men who ring the bells In the famous GIralda of Seville must be young men of unusual agility and steadiness of nerve. When the city Is to make merry on feast days the ringers climb to the belfry, and then, by the aid of a rope arid steps cut in the wall of the tower, each mounts to the bell he Is to ring, and stands astride its brazen shout? ders. Then he presses the bell with his feet, holding on to the crosspiece on which it Is swung. Gradually the great bell sways to the movement of the man astride It, until it acquires a momentum that swings the hammer, first gently, and then with increasing force, as the sweep of ttie bell widens, until the air is trembling with the blows that strike the massive sides. The riders bend and rise and fall with the action of the bells, now appearing to the observer from the street to be In a horizontal position as the bell reaches the limit of Its swing, and again riding gracefully to an upright position as the monster sways back- ward with another thundering note. The most extraordinary part of the daring performance is the sight of the bell ringer calmly swaying the bell while It hangs far out of the belfry over the city; for the outward swing sends the counterpoise with the ringer into space beyond the arch. d, Can Be Done Without Injury to Gold Leaf, if the Following Rules Are Observed.

The first machine to directly perform the operations of addition and subtraction was one invented by Pascal In 1G42. It was known as the "machine arithmetique." Twenty years later Leibniz attempted the construction of a machine for making elaborate astronomical calculations; and. various other attempts were made in succeeding years, but with little suc- Icess. Between 1S22 and 1842 Charles Babbage designed his machine for calculating mathematical tables by the method of "differences."

It Is being done at least In one place In New York, near Broadway and Leonard street, remarks the New York Sun. At this point Is a small drainage grating set Into the sidewalk. Dust and dirt have settled In It almost to the leVel of the sidewalk, and fn that little plot, less than two feet square, grass grows luxuriantly. This Is not ordinary mongrel grass that, like Topsy, "Just growed." A truck driver working for a cotton goods house In the neighborhood, with a leaning toward agriculture decided the soil under the grating would be fertile, and hit upon the Idea of a grass plot. He purchased the seed adapted to the soil. Next came the preparation of the ground. With a table knife borrowed from a restaurant the truck driver spaded the diminutive plot and planned his seeds. Soon the first green appeared. It has kept on growing steadily. It Is true that the blades never get a chance to climb above the top of the grating, because they are kept worn down by hundreds of passing feet, but below there is a fine growth of rich, green grass. Microbes That Defy Death. Though some microbes are very tough and can stand great extremes of heat and cold, the majority of them are easily killed If the right methods are used. But what puzzled scientists for many years was that "killed" microbes seemed to be able to come alive man-eater- s. again ! de-mes- You could kill them as dead as door nails, but in a very short space of time they would reappear in swarms and as lively as crickets. Then a discovery was made. It was found that many microbes breed by means of seeds or spores, which are almost indestructible, save by fire. Experiments made with spores show that they do not in the least mind undergoing a temperature of 400 degrees below freezing-poin- t for many hours. Nor does it hurt them to be boiled! That is why such a disease as anthrax, the microbes of which produce spores, Is so extremely difficult to stamp out no ordinary means of disinfection is of the slightest use. Simple Feod for Fighters. Researches made by various scholars indicate that the heroes of Homer prepared their food with their own hands, the New York Herald remarks. In the happy simplicity of the Homeric ages the great heroes who dealt such terrible blows, leaving death and desolation behind them when they reposed after their exploits, partook of a blameless dish of beans or a plate of homely lentils. It may be difficult to Imagine in the act of peeling onions or Achilles washing cabbage. But although the wise Ulysses roasted, with his own hands, a sirloin of beef, vegetables occupied the most conspicuous places at all the great banquets of ancient Greece.

Badgers are rarely seen out of their burrows in the daytime, and this is the reason that, traveling over the western plains, one so seldom sees a badger, although their burrows are very numerous and every indication exists of the presence of these animals, says the American Forestry Magazine. They chiefly come forth at night; and it is the rarest thing to find a pair together. For some reason or other, the sexes pursue their avocations usually apart. A Quiet Life.

Morvich, champion Benjaman Block's three year old, isn't for sale at any price, according to his owner, but nevertheless a bid for the sale of the famous colt may be made by Thomas Fortune Ryan. Mr. Block set a price of 1,000, O00 on Morvich when Mr. Ryn.B son, Clendenih Ryan, pressed him to name a figure, but the owner of the Kentucky Derby winner quickly added "he wasn't in earnest," that the colt could not be had for any sum. Mr. Ryan, however, is said to have indicated a desire for a definite proposition and refused to take Mr. Block's answer as final. Mr. Block professed to treat the proposition lightly. "I told Mr. Ryan the colt was not for sale,' he added, "and so that there would be no chance of opening negotiations, I said one million. Of course, I was joking, and Mr.Ryan knew it. I still believe Morvich is the greatest colt in the country, and there is no telling what amount of money in purses and stakes he will win if he remain sound.

Condensing Vapors. s through more complete of still vapors at the petroleum refineries was suggested by the bureau of dines after an investigation by D. B. Dow, the bureau's petroleum engineer. :vir. Dow estimated that 50,000,000 saltans were recovered from still vapors at refineries in 192L "Application of the system to all refineries would give a possible gasoline recovery by this method of 170,000,000 sailors yearly," the bureau said In a statement. The calculations of the bureau of mines are based on results obtained in refineries whose general methods are more efficient than those employed in the hundreds of smaller skimming plants that have no recovery systems. It Is assumed that In the less efficient skimming plants, located in sections where the supply of cold water so essential for condenser use is scarce, greater recoveries could be made than in the large refineries studied. True of Southwest. This should be especially true of Oklahoma, north Texas and Louisiana skimming plants, where summer temperatures are high and cold water is scarce. A survey of these plants, it is believef, would show that their losses In uncondensed still vapors would be much higher than in the plants where the studies of the bureau of mines were conducted. "The magnitude of the loss from of these vapors has been realized only by few refiners, Judging by the number of plants that have recovery systems. The thirteen refineries studied by the bureau of mines are obtaining 128,6T1 gallons of gasoline daily from uncondensed still vapors. These plants are situated in the refining centers, other than the Pacific coast, and are running crude representative of all the producing fields east of the Rocky mountains. In addition several are running Mexican crude. Information from California refineries Indicates that on of the smaller gasoline content of the California crude there are no recovery plants of Importance in that state. The average recovery of gasoline at the refineries investigated by s the bureau of mines amounted to gallon per barrel of crude oil charged. "Unless preventive measures are adopted losses of gasoline from failure to condense still vapors will increase In the future, because crudes are being handled in the field with more and xuor care to avoid evaporation, and will zherefore contain much lighter and vnore volatile fractions than at present. uneon-densed ac-con- ai gallons condensation In line with the growth of textile Industries In China and the Increasing number of busy spindles in mills of the country the University of are described In a report Just made Nanking plans this year to continue public by the United States Depart- and to broaden the scope of its work ment of Labor through the children's to improve the quality of cotton probureau.

When it came into existence an all to human habit, it seems that it came not as a part of a system of snooping and spying, something like a part of a dry enforcement act. In the early days of Rome wine was offered as a sacrifice. It was improper for the vestal virgins or any of the matrons to appropriate any of the libation. To ascertain where guilt lay when some of the wine was missing it became the custom for men to smell their kinswomen's breaths. One thing leads to another, and before they knew it the Romans had invented one of the most popular of human institutions. There has never been a date fixed for the origin of the custom, but it is firBt mentioned in the memories of PomponiouB, who presented his lips to be kissed by the deserving nobles, his hands to the less deserving and least Growers' Cooperative Association have sued the association for something or other, the report did not say what. The star liars in the bright belt might just as have said a million growers have sued, for it would be exactly as near right. The Burley Tobacco Growers' Association has not been sued by anybody, has given no cause for any suit, doesn't intend to give cause fo any suit, but does intend, when it gets ready, weare informed, to sue a few farmers who broke their marketing contract and sold over the loose leaf floors. The purpose of the lying down in the CarolinaB and Virginia is plain. It is to save the big warehouse sufficient capital or credit to finance his half of the cattle, hogs or other productive liye stock. Some Kentucky land lords have supplied this capital, securing it by taking a mortgage on the live stock and permitting repayment out of the tenant's share of the proceeds. Wben the tenant is an able, energetic and reliable man, this is an excellent p.an and serves the interest of both parties. The tenant thus is encouraged to do his best and often will remain on the farm for several years.

Another is Firestone air bag curing, with its 200 pound pressure, which places every cord accurately and equalizes the tension. By blending the rubbers of different plantations and types, and by tempering it before mixing, Firestone men add still more mileage.
