county of Brenken ridge which affords the best county paper in the State and through which columns I am permitted to speak to my many friends- I left Kentucky on Dec 13th and on the 14th I landed in St Louis the metropolis of Missouri and of the West Ibis city is the greatest rallroadcenterin the union and furnibses the best con nection from the East to the West I continued my trip via the Missouri Kansas k Texas Railway and beheld the most picturesque ecentjjyof the West I was permitted a stop over at Sedalia and Ft Scottt These cities are of much note in connection with toe history of Frank and Jesse James I was cited to BomV noted points where they bad die played their bravery On the 16th I continued my trip through the Nation where we once more saw the soil for we had been passing through 6 inch snow There we found the cowboy herding his immense droves which in some cases numbered three thousand We occa alonally saw the keen eye of the brave Indian casting y glimpse at the window and in appearance saying Depart I never knew you We then crossed the colored waters of the Red river and entered the Lone Star state where each State in the Union Is represented by citizens who are engaged in all classes of business On Sunday morning when I awoke from a pleasant nights repose at McKinney Texas I gazed upon the vast prairie which is unsurpassable soil and which takes the

Democratic Governor of KentuckyMr gives the matchless a sarcastic and welltimed rub He didnt carry lUke a cyclone worth a cent did be And what Mr Hardin said about the judges of our Supreme Court the

impossible to restore prosper itytmlees free coinage of silver should be provided for byllegislation luparty Mr Hardins mine and Carlisles maintained that the preservation of the present standard of money or the gold standard would revive industries the extension of markets and the full employment of labor Before 1800 the Democrats recognized in their National platform that the gold standard should be maintained and that all money should be maintained ata parity by our legisla tion It was an accepted doctrine that free coinage of silver would bring mono metallism and a debased standard of money Mr Hardin tells us the result Free coinage of silver has been before and since 1800 the shibboleth of one wing of the Democratic party the one tthing above all others it wished to attain If we are to judge from the tide of the time and the promised nomination ot Mr Bryan the matchless its pur pose is to forcetbiaiesue of disaster into the campaign of 1000 Our country is prosperous Wall Street isnt the world money is plentiful and the best money the money of the world And as Mr Hardin tells us we will never see another Democratic President in consequence of this fanatical issue led

all means inefficient service and consequently great loss of money An efficient civil engineer of practical sense with a good backbone would be a great improvement This man should have charge of the road building and repairing and by giving him a sal ary and requiring a good bond from him every county would not only secure bet ter service and better rodds but they would eliminate the many jobs and pets of BQ many multiplied supervisors and wouldbe road builders Your county I suspect has been filched as many oth er counties have been in the state and will continue to be imposed on unless you make the chaage indicated When I wMiayouri midst I saw some very fine stone l building pikes Ytis unfortunate that your officials cannot pee the error of their way in continuing persistently In thelr

1900 J FIGURES FOR THE FARMER ofcFeeding Stuffs Controlled by Many Factors now TO oeT BEST RESULTS s BY EW ALLEN IN FARMERS BULLETIN NO u1 To simplify mattes for tho farmer cal culations have been made of the amounts of digestible protein fat and carbohy drates contained in 100 pounds each of a large number of more commonly used feeding Bluffs As has been fully tx plained above they are derived from k averages of composition and of digestibil it ity both of which are subject to con siderable variation Iu calculating them American analyses and digestion coeffi clents found in American experiments were used as far as possible They aro the figures which the farmer has to con suit to find the food value of a material in selecting his feeding stuffs or making up a ration The last column in the above table headed fuel value indicates the heat and energy power of the food It will primary1unctlons for the body and energy for work The value of food for this purpose is measured in heat units or calories and is calculated from the nutrients digested Thus the fuel value of one pound of di gestlble fat is estimated to be about 4220 calories and of one pound nf digestible protein or carbohydrates about 1800 cal ones The total fuel value of a feeding stuff is found by using these factors The meaning of the figures in the above table is that In 100 pounds of green corn fodder containing an average amouutof dry matter 207 pounds there are contained approximately 110 pounds of digestible protein materials contain- Ing nitrogen 1208 pounds of dlgeitlble carbohydrates starch sugar fiber etc and 037 pounds uf digestible fat and that these materials when burned in the body will yield 25070 calories of heat furnishing energy for work and main taming the temperature of the body Feeding Standards for Different Kinds of Animal It will be remembered that tho pri mary Junctions of food are to repair the waste of the body to promote growth in Immature animals and to furnish heat and energy And for these purposes only the digestible portion of the food is to be taken into account The amount of digestible protein fat and carbohy drates in a ration is an indication of its fitness to fulfill these purposes The next question Is slow much of these ma terlals does an animal require and in what proportion should they be given This differs with the purpose for which the animal is kept whether it is grow ing being tfastened used for work or making milk An ox standing in the stall requires less food nutrients than one whbh is worked hard every day That Is in drawing heavy loads the animal breaks down a certain amount of muscular tissue which must be replaced by protein in the food and it uses en ergy or force which is also furnished by the food nutrients In standing in the barn it still requires some protein fat and carbobydrates to perform the neces sary functions of the body as digestion to maintain heat in winter to grow a new coat of hair etc But if It Is fed the same ration as when working hard the tendency is to get fat Selection of Feeding Stufff In selecting feeding stuffs for his stock the farmer will naturally be governed by the conditions of the market The cost of feeding stuffs is controlled by other factors than the actual amounts of food materials which they contain indeed there often appears to be very little con nection between the two Bearing in mind that the protein is the most expen sive Ingredient the farmer can make his selection with the aid of the tables showing the digestible materials in 100 pounds These will show him whether wheat at 50 cents per bushel is a cheaper feed than corn at CO cents and how gluten meal at 23 per ton compares with linseed meal at 27 In these corn pan sons only the protein and fuel value need necessarily be considered Of course the special adaptability and the reverse of some materials to different kinds of animals will be taken into account But another important consideration where fertilizers or manures have to be relied upon is the manurial value of a feeding stuff This Is shown by the ni trogen in the protein and the phosphoric acid and potash in the ash Feeding stuffs differ widely in this respect wheat bran and cottonseed meal having a high manurial value while corn meal is rela tively low The value of the manure is largely determined by the character of the food given If the manure is care fully preserved a large proportion of the fertilizing constituents of the food are ro covered and go to enrich the land Preparation of Food for Animal One point upon which there seems to be much misconception is as to the in fluence of previous treatment of the food on lie digestibility Thus for example y tbn effect of drfiog hey Is not to las+ en its digestibility as is often believed The soluble materials may be washed out if the hay is rained upon and the tender parts may be lost in harvesting but in ordinary haymaking the water of tho grass is largely dried out without the digestibility of the constituents being materially affected Hay stored for a long time oven when kept dry and not si lowed to heat appeals to lose a part of Us value as food Experiments have shown that rowen was less digestible after keeping over winter than when cut in the fall even though there was no change In composition and it was not as well relished by animal Cooking and Steaming Food There has been considerable miscon ception as to the value of cooking and steaming food for stock Experiments abroad have indicated that cooking or steaming coarse or unpalatable food was Feeding stuff account In ing animals been shown lupine bay other that dig food of which been of milch pigs Kuhn Ulcers large straw supply hay hoed scarce will found very animals large 100 FKED1KO

Lalngsuek and Majuba Hill where the Brit ish fell down In 1881 were not military accidents as the defeated side would have the world believe The English troops went Into It then expecting to scatter a rabble They met General Plot Joubert and his Boer rlllcmcn who outgeneraled and outfought them and the scattering was all on their own ksidey 7ci old Gladstone saw after Mnju ba hill that It would cost England more to conquer the Boers than all the tax revenue from the Transvaal would amount to In 100 years so he called off the army and spared England the Impending shame of defeat and an

civil war N and afterward commanded a company of troopsButI was a civilian general to begin with that Is no reason why I great things should not be looked for In campaigns directed by him One of the cleverest strategists as well as hardest fighters of the Confederate army was the civilian Forrest With seldom more than 0000 men lie balked Federal armies and rulnci campaigns Joubert need do no more than that against the British and still show genius and perhaps win the day with out a great battle Names are Immaterial and It It was not generalship It was something akin to it which Joubert displayed when ho beat tho British and won Boer Inde + pendence lu 1881 It was a rapid hus thing campaign of but few weeks but the British lost at every point There t were good chances for blundering but rr only the English took advantage of h them They blundered everywhere Joubert made no mistakes- In the very first engagement Bronk horst Sprint the British numbering 204 trained men from the garrison r were met In the open by an equal num W1t Boers who disputed their march t Ward Pretoria Considering the length of the engagement an appalling number of British were killed and wounded and tho rest captured It was a plain case of annihilating an armed force Tho strategy for the Boers In 1881 consisted In cutting off or Isolating the British garrisons In the Transvaal and keeping the outside troops beyond theft border were accomplished with marvelouslys little loss to the Boers As In 1800 so In 1881 General Joubert looked first to the occupation of Jyalngsnck a tableland across which runs tho road from Natal Into thoY Transvaal General Sir George Cola ley was advancing from Natal to tho Nek with 1000 British troops Tho road at that point passes between Majuba Hill and another height 2000 feet from Majuba Jouberts men were posted upon both hills and General = I Coney advanced to tho attack In broad daylight Ho struck at Jouberts left on the secondary height thinking that V if ho carried it ho would command tho a v para Two detachments were assigned i V to the work one to attack the height ho other a rldgo continuing from PWho British general supposed that ho double attack would divide the er8 and that his columns could keep ia touch and win an easy victory But this was what happened Joubert t+ smashed tho column consisting of cavalry which attacked tho height In a twinkling hurling it back In a panic mukorthe supporting attack on the ridge The Boers were not hurt at all and con centrated their fire upon the British iIatantry which marched up tho

the British In October were fully 1100 killed mill wound ed according to reports filed In ron don Tho reports from Pretoria show 00 Boers killed and 200 wounded In tile long run the palm of generalship lies with the leader who gets the lar gest return on the smallest Investment Joubert shut his enemies up at all points with a loss of one to four In battle At Majuba Hill Joubert was outgen eraled at the start but recovered his grip with remarkable celerity anil vigor The British took advantage of the trusting nature of the Doers and stretched the moral law There was a truce on and proposal1 for peaceful settlement had been sent Into the Boer lines Through no fault of President Krugcr answer was delayed beyond tho hour named but General Joubert IB a man of peace when possible and believing In the good faith of General Colley he massed his troops In camp leaving Majuba Hill unoccupied Gen eral Colley climbed to the summit hi the night with a strong force and at daybreak looked down upon the Boers In the plain below The lilll on the side of the Book was rocky and pre cipitous and the situation was like that at Little Round Tpp Gettysburg only worse for the Doers The Con federates at Gettysburg had a better chance to dslvo the Federals from the key to the field than had Joubert to get Majuba Hill from the British But the day was lost to the budding Trans vaal republic unless Joubert retook the hill at once Nerve Is a sine qua non for a general on the field and thatI Joubert displayed on the Instant at Majuba Illll when he saw the British flag flying from the summit There I was no way of getting a column to mount the rocky face of the hill But the Boers are as sprightly as the cham- ols of the Alps and Joubert ordered them to climb that hill to the cover of the brink and from there open on the enemy What could be accomplish i theiat a distance from the brink than it I was close to the edge where the Boers could be watched so they tell back to I sate positions and left tho Boers to work unseen Suddenly hundreds of Doer rifles opened on tho British from points of I theIridges of earth the bullets struck home and General Collcys men began to grow shaky without so much as see ing an enemy A British charge was proposed but General Colley thought best to wait until the Boers got excited and rushed from cover But when that time came It was

With this week ends another chapter in the history of Time When the next Clarion is issued the nineteenth century will be a thing of the past etc Is this correspondent quite sure that he is correct in making this assertion Did the century really end with the passing of the year 1S99 or does it end with the year 1900 I maybe in error but never theless feel confident that it can be clearly demonstrated that the twentieth century begins with the year 1001 A correspondent of the NEWS will please make note It was with pleasure that I learned of the substantial victory won by the temperance workers of Cloverport and it will be a source of greater pleasure if the law proves more effectual than it has in Lewisport Never before perhaps has the ineffectiveness of the law as applied to Lewisport been more clearly proven than during the Christmas week just past Jugs Jugs jugtl Jugs by rail jugs by boat jugs by wagon and jn p by every other available mode of transit The streets as full of drunken men as if there were a saloon on every corner and not a cent of all that was spent for this went into the town coffers This Iis saM in fear and trembling for I appreciate the fact that I may again be accused of pos sessing a sordid mind and of being actuated solely by mercenary motives Past experience has taught me that to men tion money in connection with this mat ter in any way is a grievous offense However I trust I may be credited with sincerity when I say it is my earnest wish that Cloverport may enjoy prohibi tion in its truest sense and that she may never see the law

medals that were given as rewards of merit are still worn by his former pupils They were as bread cast upon the waters and gathered many days hence And now he is the receiver of probably a more meritorious reward than any he has given Parents should be very careful what kind of literature their children read Good books create knowledge virtue and happiness and bad books create the opposite In preparing food for our children we would not do such an ab surd thing as to prepare a dish of poison ous food We should take as much care of their minds as their bodies and give them wholesome food for both It Is said by some persons that the standard of religion taught by Charles M Sheldon in his book called In His Steps is too high If it is higher than the standard of religion that Jesus taught it is too high And if on the other hand it is lower than Jesus taught it is too low It is argued that He had a divine nature and so He had but we are partakers of His divine nature If so be that the spirit of Christ dwell in us The fact that He had a divine nature makes it more incumbent on us to fol low in his steps He to our guide our lawgiver our Saviour He has prom ised the Holy

Indian Reservation in Oklahoma i THE APACHE IN WAR AND PEACE f By MIss Maud AdkIsson of Quston Ky At your request I send a short sketch of the Apache Indians and why this band are prisoners of war In May 18S3 Ihlugj had come to a bad paaa at the Apache agency at San Carlos Arizona Because of the lack of harmony between the War Department and tbo Department of the Interior Gen Crook that prince of Indian manipulator lial asked to be relieved of his command discipline lead been relaxed and thin Apaches nffecUd by the under taintv of the governments policy had grown bod and reckless nroodin over wrongs some of which we nough others exaggerated or fancied a group of those men whose names are famllhr to all army men fithereJ together in council drank too deeply of Tizroln their native liquor until fearing punishment and driven on by their restless spirit they broke away by iiiKbl from their reservation one hundred and twenty four men women and children in alland Ibd to the wild faslntasea of the Sierra Mndrne The two leaders were the now famous Geron Imo Medicine Chief and Naiche the War Chief who though Iras well known played as important a part In the events which follow as did Geronlmo Geronimo was short thickset hut spare and of great endurance General Miles says of him He was one of the brightest most resolute determined looking men that I have ever tncoun tered lie had the clearest sharpest dark eyes I think I have evereeen unless it were those of Gen Sherman when he was at the prime of life and just at the close of the great war Every movement indicated pjwer energy and determination In everything he did he had a purpose Tune description still pictures the old chief as he comm to visit our school and regardless of invitations walks through our private rooms closely examining each object with his sharp eyes as he placidly seats himself in the most comfortable rocker in the mean time giving us a clear example of the above Lamed purpose when being offered some candy from a small sack he put in his hand and took all of it Prolonged activity and old age have done something toward taming both his spirit and demeanor Kaiche was the hereditary chief of the Chihuahuas a man of tall and command ing presence and a physique of iron It is sari that in these old bloody days he ehowed himself a born leader of men ln flefiniMe in the campaign and a whirlwind in Little Of the other chiefs Cli u ilma pronounced Chiwhawah was with the hostiles while Chato and Nuuhe gavn luot fflloient aid to the military as scouts It is not my Intention to tell the terrible story of the war which fallowed The Chiricahua Apaches had always shown tKemuelveH veritable Hands in cruelty and ferucity and now after years of restraint their worst passion broke loose null their hideous and bloody atrocities are too horrible to relate So swift were thnr movements and so ex tended their operations that the whole frontier of Arizina New Mexico ai d Northern Mexico were terror stricken The military sprang to its duty nobly first under Gen Crook and later under Gen Miles the campaign was carried on with a vigor that seems incredible Names which a grateful nation has de lighted to honor during this last eventful year and a half began to make themselves famous for gallant service among the Sierra Madres Officers Ghaflee Lawton and Leonard Wood showed amid the hardships of the Indian campaigning those same qualities of courage energy and generalship which contributed so much to the success of American arms before the fortifications of Santiago All bear testimony to the terrible character of this war The great ruggedness of the country combined with wlllness endurance and desperation of the Apaches rendered military operations exceedingly difficult It is reported that the women would bind their children and packs upon their backs and run trom sixty to seventyfive mlles a day defying every effort of the cavalry to overtake them After about a year of the war path Chihuahua surrendered to Gen Crook and five months later Geronimo and Nalcbe gave themselves up to Gen Miles By order from the Department not only the hostiles but many friendly ChI rica mas and even men like Chato Kieta Martinez who had fought most faithfully against the hostiles during the war were transported to Florida and thera impris coned in the dungeons of old Fort Pickens The damp climate of this place proving fatal to many of them they wore finallyi x101 removed to Fort Sill where they now are They are about three hundred in number and aro nominally prisoners

RELIGION BROUGHT OUT It Involved a Clirlatlan nnd nu Inn del and a Slant Remarkable Cnlncl Ace nnd tIzo Narrative Pointed n 1 n VeII- Tho j question of religion came up the other day In the Busy Mens Lunch club and old Parmcsnn who Is senior warden of St Pecunlas church and therefore constitutes himself a de fender of the faith leuiarked You may say what you like gentlemen but a religious man Is more apt to help thoso who need It than an Infidel I am a firm believer In Christiani ty remarked Bllson who has mado a million or so In the Swamp during tho last few years but I take exception to that statement When It comes to helping a fellow who Is down Its about an even toss between a Chris than and all infidel You doubt It ho continued as ho saw old Parmesan shako hjs head Well to provo what I say I will give you an episode In my own life I camo to New York In 1873 with no capital but a country made suit of clothes and a common school T looklngoyoungttU1 me but like many another raw coun try lad I was Irresistibly attracted to tho city where I soon expected to strike tho combination that would lead to fortune and fame But before long my main thought was to keep front starving I could get no work and no body would listen to mo when I asked for It I tried to keep up my courage but Jn my heart I would have given aoyiWng to be back on tim old farm agate Well one day I grew especially des perate Tho papers were full of tho triumphant success of Billy tho Con verted Bum who was holding revivals all over tho country And I asked my self why I a clean decent young fel low who had never been a bum should be allowed to starve while Billy was living on the fat of the land At first the wild thought came Into my head to start out myself on a career of crI mean of revivalism under tho name of Charley tho Con verted Boy Fiend and rako In the shekels llko Billy But somehow I felt I couldnt get down as low as that A brilliant thought struck me however I would state the whole thing In an advertisement more to relieve my feelings than with any hopo of getting an answerSo enough money together to Insert tho following In one of tho papers If I were a drunken bum Just taken out of the gutter scores of kind religious people would stretch Out a hand to help me But as I am ftlY a decent and self respecting young Jp3n with no vices or bad habits I am without work and starving In this treat cruel city And I added my j Initials and address i The next day I called to see If there mlght possibly bo an answer and got two The first ono I opened read as yourAugoice In the same position I found help trough a noblo Christian man and If tu will call and see mo I will Provo you that there is a Christian who Is tie and willing to help you If you are orthy Ask to see mo personally as am sorry to say my partner Is an In jtel and though a good man bo olght not bo disposed to look at your se so kindly My heart Jumped with Joy on reading this kind letter and for a little iShlle I forgot tho other one But I lon Opened It and read as follows I was deeply stirred by tho undertone of despair In your advertisement as I was once as friendless as you are I found a start in llfo through a noble man who like myself was an unbe liever And If you will call and see me I will prove to you that there Is an unbeliever who Is both ablo and will- Ing to give you a start In life If you are rorthy Ask to seo mo personally as my partner Is a Christian and though a good man ho might not bo disposed to look on your case kindly Wonderful coincidence wasnt IU tot the most wonderful part of theta yet to bo told Theso two men artners Each ono of them was l g to do a good deed without tho owlcdgo of tho other i The end of the story Well that wAs Interesting and remarkable too After trying In vain to decide to which of these two gentlemen I should make myself known I determined to seo them together and read the two letters io them I did so and you ought to have seen the look of blank surprise that ame over tho faces of both man- U they learned that though differing so widely In creed they were at one In acknowledging the religion of humani ty They were silent for a few mo OMQti and then the Christian with tears In his eyes grasped tim hand of his partner and said H Brothers have wronged you for I bare learned that without knowing It yoU are not far from the kingdom of heaven It la I who bavo wronged you ex etataaedhls partner In assuming that irea would not obey the teaching of TMT Matter to feed the hungry and clothe the naked Let us hereafter liv- oII brothers

This re markable statement was made the other day by a physician who has prac ticed many years In Phllndulplila and Who has seen a great deal of hospital service It Is a popular fallacy he went on to
