We were very much interested the other day in reading a letter from a former citizen of "this county in which he tells of an interview with President Lincoln during the progress of the Civil War, and his impression of him. The letter was written by Gen. S x Suddarth, father of James of this county, at the time Quarter Master General of the State, to Wm. Stewa"rt and Dr. T. Q. Walker, also residents of Columbiapind was written from the Willard Hotel, Washington, D. C, of date November 1st, 1863. It says: "Van Winkle and myself, together! with Mr. Poynter, my chief Clerk, arrived here on last Thursday. Oar business is mainly to get a settlement with the United States, and the money refunded which has been furnished by the State in raising, arming and equipping our troops for the United States service, the State having advanced large sums of money through my department for the General Government." After describing incidents of ihe trip he tells of an interview w n Mr. Lincoln, and also one with secretary Stanton as follows: "We stopped in the "East Room,' and in a few minutes were conducted up to the President's sanctorum, or business room, where toour surprise and gratification all further formality was set aside. Mr. Lincoln shook ub heartily by the hand, and received us in so natural and unostentatious manner, and with that kind and unaffected, plain and native urbanity as to dispel all 'embarrassment, and cause us to feel entirely easy. His conversational powers are fine, and his custom of interspersing his conversatiion with incidents, anecdotes and witticisms are well calculated to impress his hearers with the klndheartedness of the man. And. they are so delicately mingled in the thread of his discourse that one hardly notices the digression. His language is good, though not select, yet very strong, pointed and forcible though never harsh, his sentences exceedingly short, though full and complete. Whatever may be said of some of his political views, history will record him as one of the most, remarkable men of modern times. He is dignified in his manners and address without austerity, self poised and clear in his perceptions. We had rather a long chat with him (from a half to three quarters of an hour) on various matters connected with his administration, and the position of Kentucky, etc., etc In speaking of a certain politician, (not a Kentuckian) he said: "Mf. is a d- -d rascal," and then added, "God knows, I do not know when'l have sworn before." On the subject of our, claims, he referred us to the War Department, and added, Sud-darth, -- "Jesus wants me fur a sunbeam."

The rally will evidently stimulate the teachers and pupils, and for the information gained and the enjoyment that came to every one in attendance, the thanks of all interested are due our very efficient County School Superintendent, F. E. Webb, who did every thing in his power to make the day profitable and enjoyable. Prof Cherry, of Bowling Green, delivered a very learned address which was high ly appreciated. He brought with him a picture reel which he put upon the screen, at Tutt's Hall, showing the beginning and the ending of schoolroom work. There were other addresses by local and foreign speakers that were very stimulating to all present. Much more could be written and said about the program, but suffice it to say that it was a profitable gathering, and will be spoken of for weeks to come as a, great day for the teachers of Adair county in Columbia. There were fully one thousand pu pils and students in the rally, and from the number of school yells, it was very evident that they were all imbued with the'spirit of education While in front of the court-hous- a they cried long and loud for a new school building in Columbia. -- Lard Party.

But none of these was true of the Killer. He had already shown his scorn of men. His very stride showed that he feared no livlng.creature that shared the forest with him. In fact, he considered himself the forest master. The bear is never a particularly timid animal, and whatever timidity the Killer possessed was as utterly gone as yesterday's daylight. Bruce watched him with unwinking eyes. It might be that the Killer would fall to discern his outline. Bruce had no conscious knowledge, as yet, that It Is movement rather than form to which the eyes of the wild creatures arenost receptive. But he acted upon that fact now as if by instinct. He was not lying in quite the exact spot where the Killer had left his dead the preceding night, and possibly his outline was not enough like It to attract the grizzly's attention. Besides, in the Intermittent light, It was wholly possible that the grizzly would try to find the remains of his feast , by smell alone; and if this were lacking, and Bruce made no movements to attract his attention, he might wander away In search of other game. For the first time In his life, Brace knew Fear as it really was. It is a knowledge that few dwellers In cities can possibly have; and so few times has it really been experienced in these days of civilization that men have mostly forgotten what It is like. If they experience it at all, it is usually only in a dream that arises from the germ-plasa nightmare to paralyze the muscles and chill the heart and freeze a man in his bed. The moon was strange and white as it slipped In and out of the clouds, and the forest, mysterious as Death itself, lightened and darkened alternately with a strange effect of unreality; but for all that, Bruce could not make himself believe that this was just a dream. The dreadful reality remained that the Killer, whose name and works he knew, was even now investigating him from the shadows one hundred feet white-fangelong-clawem He remembered now., Posupright "form of Simon had it to him ; possibly the wind blown straighter and thus permitted him to identify the troubling smells. All at once a memory flashed over him of a scene In a distant glen, and similar tall figures tlTat tried to drive him from his food. He had charged then, struck once, nnd one of the forms had lain very still. He remembered the pungent, maddening odor that had reached him after his blow had gone home. Mbst clearly of all, he remembered how his claws had struck and sunk. He knew this strange shadow now. It was just another of that tall breed he had learned to hate, and it was simply lying prone as his foe had done after the charge beside Little river. In form recalled the fact, the other occasion with particular vividness. The excitement that he had felt before returned to him now; he remembered his disappointment when the whistling bullets from the hillside above had driven him from his dead. But there were no whistling bullets now. Except for them, there would have been further rapture beside that stream; but he might have It now. The old hunting madness came back to him. It was fair game, this that lay so still in the grass, just as the b6dy of the calf had been and just as the warm body of Hudson In the distant glen. The wound at his side gave him a twinge of pain. It served to make his memories all the clearer. The lurid lights grew In his eyes. Bage swept over him. But he didn't charge blindly. He retained enough of his hunting 'caution to know that to stalk was the proper course. He moved farther out from the edge of the forest. At that instant the moon came out and revealed him, all too vividly, to Bruce. The Killer's great gray figure In the silver light was creeping to ward him across the silvered grass. still-lyin- g that moment the Killer un- the opening gates of darkness would reveal. The Killer moved with dreadful slownega and dgUberatlOD. He was 119 TohgeT afraid. It was just as it had been before a warm figure lying still and helpless for his own terrible pleasure. A few more steps and he would be near enough to see plainly.; then after the grizzly habit to fling into the charge. He paused, his muscles setting. And then the meadows suddenly rang with the undulations of his snarl. Almost unconscious, Bruce did not jnderstand what had caused his utterance. But strangely, the bear had lifted his head and was staring straight over him. For the first time Bruce heard the wild beat of hoofs on the tnrf behind him. He didn't have time to turn and 00k. There was no opportunity even for a flood of renewed hope. Events followed upon one another with starring rapidity. The sharp, unmistakable crack of a pistol leaped through the dusk, and a bullet sung over his figure body. And then a wild-ridin- g 1 Indeed, if Simon could have seen moon- saw as It peered out from behind the clouds, he would have toWQ that one of the debts of blood Incurred so many years ago had even now been paid. Far away on a distant hillside there was one who gave no heed to the fast hoof beats of the speeding horse. It was Dave Turner, and his trail of lust and wickedness was ended at last. He lay with lifted face, and there were curious dark stMns on the pine o?C 2. And the pins, those tall, dark sentinels of the wilderness, seemed to look down upon him in passionless contemplation, as If they wondered at the stumbling ways of men.

"You might need that, too," the old woman said. "It may be wet I can't remember. But take It, anyway." Linda hardly heard. She thrust the blade into the leather of the saddle, then swung on the horse. She rode swiftly until she began to fear Simon might hear the hoof beat of her mount; then she drew up to a walk. And when she had crested the hill and had followed down its long slope into the glen, the moon went under the clouds for the first . time. She lost sight of Simon at once. Seemingly her effort to save Bruce had come to nothing, after all. But she didn't turn back. There were light patches in the sky, and the moon might shine forth again. She followed down the trail toward away. n1 AiiTit fpnm fhpfY hnmp Thft - ':' elk could no longer be entertained.

Yet, Bruce would have had any one of these, or all three together. In preference to the Killer. The reason was extremely simple. No words have ever been capable of expressing the depths- of cowardice of which a ,cojjote is capable. He will wh!ne and weep jbout a camp, like a soul lost between., two worlds, but If ' lie Is in his r'ight mind: he would have each one of his gray hairs plucked out, one by one, rather than attack a man.

The hopes The shadow that Brace saw at the mis- ran swiftly toward her. She didn't understand the deep awe that stole over her an emotion that even her fear for Bruce could not transcend. There was a quality In Elmira's face and posture that she had never seen before. It was as if she were walking in her sleep, she came with such a strange heavlntss and languor, her cane creeping through the pine needles of the trail in front She did not seem to be aware of Linda's approach until the girl was only ten feet distant. Then she looked up, and Linda saw the moonlight on her face. She saw something else too, but she didn't know what it was. Her own through the forest with the expectaeyes widened.

It was the fear that the deer knew as they crept down their dusky trails at night; it was tire fear of darkness and silence and pain and heaven knows what cruelty that would be visited upon him by those terrible rending fangs and claws. It was the fear that can be heard in the pack song in the dreadful winter season, and that can be felt in strange overtones, in the sobbing wail of despair that the coyote utters in the He had been afraid for his life every moment he was in the hands of the Turners. He knew that if he survived this night, he would have to face denth again. He had no hopes of deliverance altogether. But the Turners were men. and they worked with knife blade and bullet, not rending fang and claw. He could face men bravely; but it was hard to keep a strong heart in the face of this ancient fear of beasts. The Killer seemed disturbed and moved slowly along the edge of the moonlight. Bruce could trace his movements by the Irregularity In the line of shadows. He seemed to be moving more cautiously than ever, now. Bruce could not hear the slightest sound. For an instant he had an exultant hope that the bear would continue on down the edge of the forest and leave him; and his heart stood still as the great beast paused, sniffing. But some smell in the air seemed to reach him, and he came stealing back. In realitjt the Killer was puzzled. He had come to this place straight half-darknes- s. When Linda left her house, her first realization was the need of caution. It would not do to let Simon see her. And she knew that only her long training in the hills, her practice in climbing the winding trails, would enable g her to keep pace with the man without being seen. In her concern for Bruce. Linda had completely forgotten the events of the earlier part of the evening. Wild and stirring though they were, they now seemed to her as incidents of remote years, nothing to be remembered in this hour of crisis. But she remembered them vividly when, two hundred yards from the house, she saw two strange figures coming toward her between the moonlit tree trunks. There was very little of reality about either. The foremost figure was bent and strange, but she knew that it could be no one but Elmira. The second, however behind her offered no Interpretation of outline at all at first. But at the turn of the trail she saw both figures in vivid profile. Elmlra was coming homeward, bent over her cane, and she led a saddled horse by its bridle fast-walkin- the cleared lands that the Turners cultivated. She went to their very edge. It was a rather high point, so she waited here for the moon to emerge again. Never, It seemed to her, had It moved so slowly. But all at once its light flowed forth over the land. Her eyes searched the distant spaces, but she could catch no glimpse of Simon between the trees. Evi dently he no longer walked in the direction of the house. Then she looked out over the tilled lands. Almost a quarter of a mile away she saw the flicker of a miniature shadow. Only the vivid quality of the moonlight, against which any shadow was clear-cu- t and sharp, enabled her to discern it at all. It was Simon, and evidently his business bad taken him Into the meadows. Feeling that she was on the right track at last, she urged her horse forward again, keeping to the shadow of the timber at first. Simon walked almost parallel to the dark fringe for nearly a mile; then turned off Into the tilled lands. She rode opposite him and reined in the , half-obscur- rein. Still keeping Simon in sight, Linda horse to watch. When the distance had almost. obscured him, she saw him stop. He waited a long time, then turned back. The moon went In and out of the clouds. Then, trusting to the distance to conceal her, Linda rode slowly out Into the clearing. Simon the timber, his inspection seemingly done, and Linda still rode in the general direction he hnk gone. A curious sense of impending events came over her as she headed on toward the distant wall of forest beyond. Then, the clouds slowly dimming under the moon, the light grew with almost imperceptible encroachments. At first it was only bright enough to show her own dim shadow on the grass. The utter gloom that was over . the fields lessened and drew away like receding curtains; her vision reached ever farther, the shadows grew more clearly outlined and distinct. The" the moon rolled forth Into a wholly open patch of sky a white sphere with a sprinkling of vivid stars around it and the silver radiance poured swept up to him. It was Linda, firing as she came. How she had been able to control her horse and ride him Into that scene of peril no words may reveal. Perhaps, running wildly beneath the lash, his starting eyes did not discern or Interpret the gray figure scarcely a score of yards distant from Bruce; and it Is true the grizzly's pungent smell a thing to terrify much more and to be interpreted more clearly than any kind of dim form in the moonlight was blown in the opposite direction. Perhaps the lashing strap recalled the terrible punishment the horse had undergone earlier that evening at the hands of Simon and no room was left for any lesser terror. But most likely of all. Just as in the case of brave soldiers riding their horses into battle, the girl's own strength and courage went into him. The bear reared up, snarling with wrath, hut for a moment it dared not charge. The sudden appearance of the girl and the horse held him momentarily at bay. The girl swung to the ground in one leap, fired again, thrust her arm through the loop of the bridle rein, then knelt at Brace's side. The white blade that she carried In her left hand slashed at his bonds. The horse, plunging, seemed to jerk her body back and forth, and endless seconds seemed to go by before the last of the thongs was severed. In reality the whole rescue was unbelievably swift. The man helped her all lie could. "Up up into the saddle," she commanded. The grizzly growled a train, advancing remorselessly toward them, and twice more she fired. Two of the bullets went home in his great body, but their weight and shocking power were too slight to affect him. He went down once more on all fours, preparing to charge. Bruce, in spite of the fact that his limbs had been nearly paralyzed by the tight bonds, managed to grasp the In the strength of newsaddlehorn. born hope he pulled himself half up on it, and he felt Linda's strong arms behind him pushing up. The horse plunged in deadly fear; and the Killer leaped toward them. Once more the pistol cracked. Then the horse broke nnd ran in a frenzy of terror. Bruce v:.s full in the saddle by then, and even at the first leap his arm swept out to the girl on the ground beside him.

A buck deer a noble creature with six points on his spreading horns got the first Inkling of it when he stopped at a spring to drink. The air had been chill In his nostrils, but thanks to a heavy growth at hair that with mysterious foresight had begun to come upon bis body. It gave him no discomfort. But it was a puzzling and significant thing that the water he bent to drink had been transformed to something hard and white and burning cold to the tip of his nose. It was the first real freeze. True, for the past few nights there had been a measure of tinkling, cobweb frost on the ground In wet places, but even d blrds always most the watchful of signs of this kind had disregarded it. But there was no disregarding this half-inc- h of blue Ice that had covered the spring. The buck deer struck It angrily with his front hoofs, broke through and drank; then went snorting up the hill. His anger was in itself a significant thing. In the long, summer days, Blacktail had almost forgotten what anger was like. He had been content to roam over the ridges, cropping the leaves and grass, avoiding danger and growing fat But all at once this kind of existence had palled on him. He felt that he wanted only one thing not food or drink, or safety but a good, slashing, hooking, battle with another buck of his own species. An unwonted crossness had come upon him, and his soft eyes burned with a blue fire. He rea membered the does, too with a leap of his blood and wondered where they were keeping themselves. Being only a beast he did not know that this new belligerent spirit was Just as much a sign of fall as the soft blush that ws coming on the leaves. The simple fact was that fall means the beginning of the rut the wild mating days when the bucks battle among themselves and choose their harems of does. He had rather liked his appearance as he saw himself In the water the spring. The last of the velvet had been nibbed from his horns, and the twelve tines (six on each horn) were as bard and almost as sharp as so many lnyonet points. As the morning dawned, the change in the face of nature became ever more manifest. The leaves of the shrubbery bear to change in color. The wind 'out of the north had a keener, more biting quality, and the birds were having some sort of exciting debate in the tree tops. The birds are always a scurried, outfit, nervous, rather and seem wholly incapable of making a decision about anything without hours of argument and discussion. Their days are simply filled with one excitement after another, and they tell more scandal in an hour than the old ladies in a resort manage in the entire summer. This slow 'transformation in the color of the leaves, not to mention the chill of the frost through their scanty feathers had created a sensation from one end of birdland to another. And there was only one thing about it. That was to wait until the darkness closed down again, then tnrt away toward the path of the sun in search of their winter ts In the south. The Little People in the forest of ferns beneath were not such gay birds, and they did not have such ideas as these feathered folk in the branches. They didn't talk such foolishness and small talk from dawn to dark. They didn't wear gay clothes that weren't a particle of good to them in cold weather. You can imagine them as being good, substantial, middle-class people, much more sober- minded, tending stri, ;!y to business aud working hart, and among other ' things they saw no need of flitting downf to southern resorts for the cold season.

I ill-c- ut flve-strlpe- d, - multi-colore- d i 1 gftce-a-Wee- K -- wc-fc- The Attorney General of the United States rules that no foreign ship with liquor aboard can enter an American port. This is in accordance with one of the provisions of our prohibition law. iWhether that law is best for the country or not is a matter which each citizen must decide for himself. It is also a matter upon which public opinion is acutely divided. TBut some of our foreign friends have taken umbrage at the ruling and have threatened a wholesale boycott of American ports. They intimate that American tourists will find it inconvenient to journey to Canada in order to take ship for a trip abroad. Foolish babble of irresponsible; tongues! They take it for granted that Americans cannot exist, without flocking over to Furope and strewing their gold broadcast. Instead, they might with advantage ,to themselves, reason thusly: 1. If other nations put 'into effect a shipping boycott of our pnrts, there is nothing to prevent Americans from putting into effect financial boycott against Europe. 2. America coulg exiife yery comfortably without any contact whatever with Europe. 3. European countries would find themselves mightily distressed if suddenly shut off from all financial.aid from this country. 4. Rich Americans are foolish to spend their money abroad when conditions are normal. But when a foreign conspiracy is hatched up against our country it is quite possible for the people of wealth to line up behind the good old flag and tell all conspirators to go where it is farmer.

In his practice of law he has been successful, and in all his dealings with his fellow man he has been as straight as an arrow. He is a born Democrat, having been taught from a lad, that the principles enunciated in great national Democratic Conventions were the be9t safe guards to human liberty. He adheres to these principles closely, and at no time in the future will he declare himself a changling. Furthermore, a man who has managed well for himself could j&o the same for the whole State of Kentucky. We have reference to Hon.

Many lines of business demand a truck combining the sturdiness and endurance of the heavy-dut- y truck with the flexibility and speed of the touring car.
