Western Hills Prairies and Cities of Much Interest To Travelers FROM BRECKEN RIDGE TO IOWA On the first day of February we bade adieu to our beloved friends in Brecken ridge county and started on a trip to the northwest Our route took us over the L H St Lt the Big Four the I 0 and the 0 R1 railroads by way of Louisville Indianapolis and Chicago The scenery was of a diverts nature There were the high hills of which some were very rugged while others derived their delightful appearance not so much from their beauty and steepness of ascent but from their value on account of the abundance of deciduous trees Then there were the vast prairies which lay spread before us as far as the eye could see and at last tho beautiful homes and fertile soil which could easily produce from 05 to 00 bushels of grain per acre One of the chief delights of Chicago ia to view the clear blue waters of Lake Michigan Another matter of interest to us in Chicago was the vast amount of bust ness done there every day and the beau tifull mansions in which the people live in luxuryWhen we reached the old capital of Iowa Iowa City wo were lucky enough to get a job at once which we held for a short time and then started to the present capital city Des Moines Upon leaving Iowa City we were told that we might expect a norther very soon as the air was quite warm and sul try This was a true prophecy for we had been started west not more than ten minutes going at the rate of sixty miles an hour when we met a blizzard of snow BO thick that we could scarcely tee and the wind was terrific We stayed in Des

Ky The first thing necessary in successful tobacco growing is to get your plants ready for planting in good time To ac complish this the beds must be burned aa early as possible in the fall or winter The beds should be burned whore the possible before canvassing which should be done as soon as all danger from snow Is over It must be remembered that different lands require deferent treatment I have sometimes plowed land six times and had a good crop then again I have plowed only once and had quite as much scccees The man who waits until April or May to sow his seed will be going through the country begging plants and will have to be content with what his neighbor does not want Get your tobacco planted in May if possible and quit setting by the 20th of June If you have nothing else to plant your land in sow it in salt be fore putting in your tobacco after the 20th of June Some people will cut tobacco just as it begins to turn which is not a good plan Let it stand as long as possible I have been a tobacco grower for twentyeight years and my crop has never failed me but one year If people could sow tobacco seed In some old field where it would require no work to cultivate it and where there would be no worms the woods would be full of tobacco in one year Some peo plo will give one kind or advice to tobacco growers and some another but the main thing is to watch the man who is successful in the business and adopt his planI always prime high if the season will admit and top to ten leaves the first time then drop to nine eight and six leaves and then pull up the rest so that worms willnot get on the under leaves of the tobacco I then go to the good plants and pull up all kinds of weeds such as nightshade ground cherry and Jimson that worms live on Putting a big hill around tobacco is a thing of the past I would not board a man to bill up my tobacco Thin most important part of all is the stripping Tobacco should not be stripped until the stalk cures Too early stripping causes the ions of more tobacco than one would think I want some good men to try my plans for tobacco growing and see whether or not they are successfulWishing the NEWS all possible good

Proftiso v L H Pammol government botanIst 5 that seeds have retained their vitality for a long time Thus It Is stated that wheat under some conditions has pre- servedfy Its vitality for 50 or 100 yearn It has frequently been stated that wheat taken from Egyptian monu ments germinated but In not a single case Is this germination authenticated Not a single grain taken from an an dent Egyptian sarcophagus and sown by various persons has ever been known to germinate and the condi tions for preserving the seed In these Egyptian monuments are bettor than In the soil They are protected from the air and variations of temperature The experiment which has been most talk ed of Is that of the Count of Bternberg at Prague He had received the grains from a trustworthy traveler who told him that they were taken from a sarcophagus It Is said that two of these seeds germinated but It Is a well known fact that Impostures are perpetrated by the people who dispose of these seeds In some cases they have even stripped corn or maize Into these sarcophagi Many experiments have been made not only In this country but In Europe to determine the vitality of various grain seeds Thus barley retains Its vitality better than any other cereal and this Is said to retain Its vitality from eight to ten years In the case of wheat 00 to 100 per cent germinates la from one to four years In five to seven years 85 to 87 per cent In the case of rye the percentage of germination In five years dropped to 05 per cent In seven years 30 per cent nine years 13 per cent In the case of corn I made some experiments a few years ago to determine the vitality and found that corn which was kept In tightly closed vessels at the age of 20 years had lost all Its power of germination Experiments also Indicate that corn kept even a few years became largely deteriorated and lost much of Its power of germination Even gross seeds which have been hurled at some depth in the soil and In vessels tightly scaled failed to germinate after a dozen or 10 years Chicago Chronicle Working night and Day The busiest and mightiest little things that ever were made are Dr Kings New Life Pills Every pill is a

HinEeys opin ion to be correct the finding of this coal will undoubtedly prove off great benefit to Oloverport as it is reasonably certain that the Breckenridue Cannel Coal Com yany would feel

mmm I1 lfnn1nJnrlIIr4 4Ial ll tI M 4 M CHAPTER IX When Philip reached the residence of Mr Winter ho found himself at once in the mIdst of a mob of bowling an gry men who surged over the lawn and tramped the light snow that was tailing Into a muddy mass over the walks and up the veranda steps A large electric lamp out In tho street In trout of tho house threw a light over the strango scene Philip wedged his way In among tho men crying out his name and asking for room to bo made so that ho could see Mr Winter The crowd under the Impulse which sometimes moves exerted bodies of men yielded to his request There were cries of Let him have a minister It bo wants onelI Room hero for the priest Give tho preacher a chance to do some praying where Its needed mighty bad and so on Philip found a way opened for him as ho struggled toward the house and he hurried forward fearing some great trouble but hardly prepared for what he saw when he finally reached the steps of the veranda naif a dozen men had the mill owner In their grasp having evidently drag god him out of hIs dining room Ills coat was half torn off as If there had been a struggle Marks of bloody fin gers stained his collar Ills face was white and hIs eyes filled with the tear of death Within upon the floor lay bis wife who bad fainted A son and a daughter his two grown up children clung terrified to one of the servants who kneeled half fainting herself by the sIde of the mill owners wife A table overturned and fragments of a lato dinner scattered over the sIde- board and on the floor a broken plate tho print of a muddy foot on the whIte tiling before the open fire tho whole picture lIMbed upon Philip like a scene out of the French revolution and he almost rubbed his eyes to know If he was awako and In America In the nineteenth century lie was intensely practical however and the nature of his duty never for a moment escaped him no at once advanced and said calmlyWhat does all thIs mean Why this attack on Mr Winter The moment Mr Winter saw Philip and heard his voice ho cried out trem bUng 1s that you Mr Strong Thank Godl Save men They are going to kill mot Who talks of killing or taking hu man life contrary to law 7 exclaimed Philip coming up closer and placing his hand on Mr Winters arm Men what arc you doing For a moment the crowd fell back a little from the mill owner and one of tho men who had been foremost In tho attack replied with some respect al though In a sullen manner Mr Strong this Is not a case for your In terference This man has caused the death of ono of his employees and bo deserves hanging And hanging he will get yelled an other A great cry arose In the midst of It nil Mr Winter shrieked out hIs innocence It Is alt a mistake They do not know Mr Strong tell them they do not know The crowd closed nrounchftlr Winter again Philip knew enough about men to know that the mlH owner was In genuine danger Most of his assail ants were the foreign clement In the mills Many of them were under the Influence of liquor The situation was critical Mr Winter clung to Philip with the frantic clutch of a man who seen only one way of escape and clings to that with mad eagerness Philip turned around and faced the mob Ho raised his voice hoping to gain a bear las and reason with It but he might as well have raised his voIce against a tornado Some one threw a handful ot mud and snow toward the prisoner In an Instant every hand reached for the nearest missile and a shower of stones muddy snowballs and limbs torn from the trees on the lawn was rained upon tho house Most of the windows In the lower story were bra ken All this time Philip was eagerly Bmonstrotlng with the few men who fad their hands on Mr Winter lie thought If bo could only plead with them to let the man go ho could slip with him around the end of the veranda through a side door and take him through tho house to a place of safety He also knew that every mInute was precious as the police might arrive at any moment and change the situation But In spite of hIs pleas the mill owner was gradually pushed and dragged down off the veranda toward the gate The men tried to get Philip out of tho wayWe dont want to harm you sir Better get out of danger said the same man who had spoken before Philip for answer throw one arm about Mr Winter saylngU you kill him you will kill me wlth hlm You ball never do this great sin against an Innocent man In the name of God I call on every soul hero toy But his words were drowned In tho Bolso tbat followed Tho mob was in cano with tory Twice Mr Winter was dragged off his feet by those down Yi the walk twice PhlUp raised him F II Leaf Is an aspirant for the once ef sheriff of Bpenoer county If you ItUl Mm you will kilt me to his feet feeling sure that If the crowd once threw him down they would trample him to death Once some ono threw a rope over tho wretch ed mans head Both he and Mr Winter were struck again and again Their clothes were torn Into tatters Mr Winter was taInt and reeling Only his great terror mado his clutch on Philip llko that of a drowning man At last the crowd had dragged tho two outside the gate Into the street Here they paused awhile and Philip again spoke to the mob Men mado In Gods Imago listen to mol Do not take Innocent life If you kill him you kill me also for I will never leave his side alive and 1 wftt not permit such murder If I can pre Itmil them boththo bloody coward and tho prieetr yelled a voice They both belong to the samo church Yew hang em Hang cm both A tempest of cries went up Philip tow end up like a giant In tile light of the street lamp be looked out over tho great sea of passionate brutal faces sued with drink and riot and a great wave of compassionate feeling swept over him Those nearest never forgot that look It was Christttke ta Its yearning love for lost children His llpa moved In prayer And just then the outer drde of the crowd seemed agitated It had surged up nearer the Ilight with tho evident Intention of hanging the mill owner on one of the crossplcces of a telegraph pole near by The rope had again been thrown over his bead Philip stood with one arm about Mr Winter and with the other stretched out In en treaty when ho heard a pistol shot then another The entire police de partment had been sumtnoned and had finally arrived There was a skirmish ing rattle of shots But the crowd began to scatter In the neighborhood of the pollee force Then those nearer Philip began to run as best they could away from tho officers Philip and tho mill owner were dragged along with the rest In the growing confusion until watching his opportunity Philip pulled Mr Winter behind ono of the largo poles by which tho lights of the street were suspended Here sheltered a little but struck by many a blow Philip managed to shield with his owa body tho man who only a little while before had come Into his own house and called him a liar and threatened to withdraw his church sup port because of the preaching of Ohristfs principles When finally the officers reached the two men Mr Winter ww nearly dead fsgm the fright Philip was badly bruised but not seriously and bo helped Mr Winter bAck to the house while a few of too police remained on guard tho test of the night It was while recovering from the effects of the nights attack that Philip little by little learn ed of the facts that led up to tho assault There had been a growing feeling of discontent in all the mlBs and It bad finally taken shape In tho Ocean mill which was largely owned and control led by Mr Winter Tho discontent arose from a new scale of wages submitted by the company It was not satisfactory to the men and tho after noon of that evening on which Philip had gono down to tho hall a commit tee of the mill men had waited on Mr Winter and after a long conference had gono away without getting any satisfaction They could not agree on the proposition made by the company and by their own labor organization Later in the day ono of tho committee under Instructions went to see Mr Winter alone and came away from the interview very much excited and angry He spent the first part of thu evening In a saloon where he related a part of his Interview with the mill owner and said that he had finally kicked him otot tho office Still later In the evening he told several of the moo that he was going to see Mr Win tee again knowing that on certain evenings he was hi the habit of stay- Ing down at tho mill office until nearly half past 0 tor special business The mills wore undergoing repairs and Mr Winter was away from home more than usual Tfesti tract the hot list any ono saw cC the man Ul beet 10 dock tail a2adlnr hfimn rim ft fho mill office beard a man groaning at the foot of a new excavation at tho end of the building and climbing down discover ed tho man who had been to see Mr Winter twice that afternoon He had a terrible gash In his head and lived only a few minutes after he was dis covered To the half dozen men who stood over him In tho saloon where be had been carried he had murmured the namo of lr Winter and had then expired A very little adds fuel to tho brain of men already heated with rum and ha tred The rumor spread like lightning that the wealthy mill owner had killed one of the employees who had gono to seo him peaceably and arrange matters for tho men He had thrown him out of the offlco into ono of tho now mill excavations and left him there to dlo like a dog In a ditch So the story ran all through tho tenement district and In an Incredibly swift time tho worst elements in Milton wero surging toward Mr Winters houso with murder In their hearts and the means of accom plishing It in their hands Mr Winter had finished hIs work at the ofQco and gone home to sit down to a lato lunch as his custom was when Ho was Interrupted by tho mob The rest of the incident is connected with what has been told Tho crowd seized- him with little ceremony and It was only Philips timely arrival and his saving of minutes until the police ar rived that prevented a lynching In Milton that night As It was Mr Win ter received a scare from which It took a long time to recover He dread ed to go out alone at night Ho kept on guard a special watchman and lived In more or less terror even then It was satisfactorily proved In a few days that the man who had gono to see Mr Winter had never reached the offlco door but coming around tho corner of the building where tho new work was being done ho had fallen off the stonework striking on a rock In such a way as to produce a fatal wound This tempered the teeing of the workmen toward Mr Winter but a widespread unrest and discontent had seized on every man employed In the mills and as the winter drew on affairs reached a crisis The difference between the mills and the men over the scale of wages could not be settled The men began to talk about a strike Philip heard of It and at once with his usual frankness and boldness spoke with downright plain ness to the men against It That was at the little ball a week after tho attempt on Ur Winters life Philips part In that nights event had added to hIs reputation and his popularity with the mon They admired hIs courago and his grit Most of them were ashamed of the whole affair especially after they had sobered down and it bad been proved that Mr Winter had not touched the man So Philip was welcomed with applause as be came out on the little platform and looked over the crowded room seeing many faces there that had glared at him In the mob a week before And yet his heart told him be loved these men and his reason told him that It was the sinner and the unconverted that God loved It was a terrIble responsibility to have such men count him popular and ho prayed that wisdom might be given him In the approaching crisis es pecially as bo seemed to have some 1lnfiueucc He had not spoken ten words when somo ono by the door cried Come out side Big crowd out here want to get In It was moonlight and not very cold so every one moved out of the hail and Philip mounted tho steps of a storehouse near by and spoke to a crowd that filled up the street In front and for a long distance right and left His speech wns very brief but it was fortified with telling figures and at the close he stood and answered a perfect torrent of questions His main counsel was against a strike In tho present sit nation He had mode himself familiar with the facts on both sides Strikes ho argued except In very rare cases were demoralizing an unhealthy die astrous method of getting justice done Why Just look at that strike In Preston England among the cotton splatters There were only 000 opera tins but that strike before it ended threw out of employment over 7800 weavers and other workmen who bad nothing whatever to do with tho quarrel of the GOO men In the recent strike In tho cotton trade In Lancashire at tho end of the first 12 weeks tho operatives bad lost In wages alone 4GOO000 Four strikes that occurred In England between 1870 and 1880 Involved a loss In wages of moro than 25000000 In 22000 strikes Investigated lately by the national bureau of labor It Is esti mated that the employees lost about 51800000 while the employers lost only 30700000 Out of 353 strikes In England between 1870 and 1880 101 were lost by the strikers 71 were gained and 01 compromised but In the strikes that were successful It took sev eral years to regain In wages the amount lost by the enforced Idleness of the men There were enough hard thinking sensible men In the audience that night to see tho force of his argument Tho majority however were in favor of a general strike to gain their point In regard to the scale of wages When Philip went home ho carried with him the conviction that a general strike in tho mills was pending In spIte of tho tact that It was the worst possible sea son of the year for such action and In spite of the fact that the difference de manded by the men was a trifle com pared with their loss of wages the very first day of Idleness there was a doter urination among the leaders that the 15000 men In the mills should all go out In the course of a few days If the demands of the men In the Ocean mill were not granted What was tho surprise of every one In Milton therefore tho very next day when It was announced that every mDI In the great system had shut doge and not a man of the 15000 bonnIwho marched to the DHfldlnflps Ja the tJLmq1l 4 entrance statements were posted upon tho doors that the mills here shut down until further notice Tho mill owners bad stolen a march on the em ployees and tho big strike was on butt had been started by capital not by labor and labor went to Its tenement or congregated In the saloon sullen and gloomy and as days went by and tbo mills showed no signs of opening the great army of tho unemployed walked the streets of Milton in grow ing discontent and fast accumulating debt and poverty Meanwhllo tho trial of the man ar rested for shooting Philip came on and Philip and his wife both appeared as witnesses In the case The man was convicted and sentenced to 15 years Imprisonment It has nothing special to do with tho history of Philip Strong but may be of Interest to the reader to know that In two years tlmo ho was pardoned out and returned to Milton to open his old saloon where ho actually told moro than onco the story of hIs at tempt on tho preachers life There came also during those stormy times In Milton tho trial of several of tho men who wero arrested for the as sault on Mr Winter Philip was also summoned as a witness In those cases As always he frankly testified to what ho knew and saw Several of the ac cured wero convicted and sentenced to short terms But the mill owner probably fearing revenge on tho part of tho men did not push tho matter and most of the cases went by default for lack of prosecution Mr Winters manner toward Philip underwent a chango after that memo rable evening when the minister stood by him at the peril of his own life There was a feeling of genuine respect mingled with fear In his deportment toward Philip To say that they werowarm friends would bo say Ing too much Men as widely different as the minister and the wealthy mill man do not come together on that sacred ground of friendship even when ono Is Indebted to the other for hIs life A man may save another from hanging and still bo unable to save him from selfishness And Mr Winter went his way and Philip went his on a different basis so far as common greeting went but no nearer In tho real thing which makes heart to heart communion Impossible For the time being Mr Winters hostility was submerged under hit Indebtedness to Phil ip Ho returned to his own place In tho church and contributed to tho financial support CHAPTER xOne day at the dose of a month Philip came Into the cozy parsonage and Instead of going right up to his study as his habit was when his out side work was done for tho day ho threw himself down on a couch by the open fire Ills wife was at work In the other room but the came In and seeing him tying there Inquired what was the matter Nothing Barah with me Only Im tick at heart with te sight and knowledge of all this wicked towns sin and misery Do you have to carry It all on your shoulders Philip r- Yes replied Philip almost fiercely It was not that either Only his reply was like a great sob of conviction that he must bear something of these bur dens He could not help it Mrs Strong did not say anything for a moment Then she asked Dont you think you take It too seri ously Philip Whatr Other peoples wrongs You are notresponsibleAm 1 am my brothers keeper What quantity of guilt may 1 not carry Into the eternalI kingdom If I do not do what I can to save him Oh bow can men bo so selfish Yet i1 am only one person 1 cannot prevent all this suffering alonen Of course you cannot Philip You wrong yourself to take yourself to task so severely for the sins of otters But what has stirred you up so this timer Mrs Strong understood Philip well enough to know that some particular case had roused his feeling Ho seldom yielded to such despondency without some immediate practical rea son Philip sat up on tbe coach and clasped his bands over his knee with tho eager earnestness that characterized him when be was roused Sarah this town slumbers on tho smoking crest of a volcano There are more than 15000 people hose In Milton out of work A great many of them are honest temperate people who have saved up a little But it Is nearly gone Tho mills ore shut down and on the authority of men that ought to know shut down for all winter The same condition of affairs Is true Ina mote or less degree In the entire state and throughout the country and even the world People are suffering today In this town for food and clothing and fuel through no fault of their own Tho same thing Is true of thousands and oven hundreds of thousands all over tho world It la an ago that calls for heroes martyrs servants saviors And right hero In this town where dIs- tress walks the streets and actual want already has Its clutch on many a poor devil society goes on giving its ox pensive parties and living In Its little round of selfish pleasure just as If tho volcano was a downy little bed of roses for It to go to sloop in whenever it wearies of tho pleasureI and wishes to retire to happy dreams Oh but the bubble will burst one of those days and then Philip swept his hand upward with a fine gesture and sank back upon the couch groaning Dont you exaggerate The mla IsterB wife put the question gently Not a bit Not a bit All tree I am not one of the French revolution teIanal lugging In bleed and destruction dud prophesying rain to the nation and tie world it H doegee andhaTT ttie way I like It toBut I tell you earth ft t tae BO prophet tajwttU alan riot ibtierz rod out of work Is a dangerous man to have around And It takes no extraordinary sized heart to swell a little with righteous wrath when In such times as these pcoplo go right on with their use less luxuries of living and spend as much on a single evenings entertainment as would provide a comfortable living for a wholo month to some de serving family How do you know they dor Well Ill toll you Ive figured It out I will leave It to any one of good Judgment that any one of these project ed parties mentioned hero in the evening paper Philip smoothed the paper on the head of the couchany ono of them will cost In the neighborhood of 100 to 160 Look hero Heres tho Goldens partymembers of Calvary church They will spend at least 25 to 30 In flowers and refreshments will cost 50 more and music another 25 and Incidentals 25 extra and so on Is that right Sarah these times and as people ought to live nowr But some one gets the benefit of all this money spent Surely that Is a help to some of the working people Yes but how many people are helped by such expenditures Only a select few and they are tho very ones who are least in need of it I say that Christian people and members of churches have no right to Indulge theIr selfish pleasures to this extent In these ways I know that Christ would not approve of it You think he would not Philip No I know ho would not There Is not a particle of doubt in my mind about It What right has a disciple of Jesus Christ to spend for the gratifica tion of hIs physical aesthetic pleasures money which ought to be feeding the hungry bodies of men or providing somo useful necessary labor for their activity I mean of course the grad fication of those senses which a man can live without In this age of the world society ought to dispense with some of Its accustomed pleasures and deny Itself for the sake of the great suffering needy world Instead of that

Connecticut wit the traveling man appear to be much moro honest than they are In New York Not one fam ily In ten thinks of such a thing as burglar alarms and half of them do not even lock their outer doors when they retire But what Impresses me most are the street laundry boxes Nearly every town of 5000 or more Inhabitants has several places where laundry packages are received and de livered These places aro generally dry goods or notion stores or haber dasheries Suburban merchants as a rule do not keep their stores open much later than 8 oclock In the evening and do not optm them until 7 or half past 7 In the morning This does not suit all their patrons so it is no Infrequent sight to see outside the store a large red box with a fair sized opening in the top The box bears the legend Ifthe store is closed put your laundry In hero Now just imagine a New York laundry office us ing a receptacle like that Why five minutes after a package was deposited in the box it would be fished out and in an hour its contents would be in the possession of somo dealer in secondhand clothing But up in Connecticut the scheme seems to work very well and all I can say Is that it Is a tribute to tho

to Our Neck of tbe Woods WHY THE SOUTH IS CRIPPLED Too Much Legislation Against These Gigantic Corporation Has Kept It Unprogressive LET KENTUCKY TAKE TIle HINT At this time when one of the political parties in this State is arrayed against the railroads and one railroad in par ticular that has done more for Kentucky than all other agencies that have worked to the development of our State and its wonderful resources we delight to see our fellows of tile press come out in a good word for the railroads in general and give the public a hint aa to their worth to us aa commercial agents aud aids to civilization Our esteemed con temporary The Southern Tobacco Journal in dicureing the railroads in a re cent issue wisely said Ibis is an age of unequal burden bearing In tbe light or the distant Pge forward in which we live Justice to all alike would naturally be looked for but in spite of this we find that now the band of oppression is laid upon the shoulders of many with the same sell righteous air as it wee in the bluest of blue law days in the early history of New England Among those who are today bearing burdens that are unjustly placed are the railroad companies and most especially those in the South where fanaticism has blinded so many or those who are entrusted with the duty of law making Tin railway companies have done more to develop the South to foe ter its new industries and advertise its resourcatIiau all other agencies com bined Without the conveniences which they have carried to the people in these remote section and without the spirit of development and progress which their coming has inspired the South would now be scores of years behind its present status Count the towns along every through line and every stem line in every Southern State soil mark how the population has doubled and more than doubled in a slncle decade then count the towns unreachcd by tlio railroad mid see the stagnation that hnngi about every one of them Go to the tax books along every rnilo of railway in thu South and see the increase in the value of all property take the tux books in all untouched sec tions and mto thu depreciation in both real and jurhoual property that prevails HanK this picture before you and rend how till railway have helped to enrich every man who has felt their influence and who will diipiito the assertion that these railway companies have been the greatest binrfsictors the downtrodden South hftfl had V And In tilt faco of all this what does the Houlh give thu railroads in return The answer is plain to every reader In stead of gratitude of assistance of coop oration every kind of obstructive legis lation ia heaped upon the railway com panics Not a legislature meets in the South hut one bill or more is introduced hanging new burdens upon these greatest benefactors the South has It Iis now absolutely necessary to watch every gathering of those representatives of the people and to flht with full shown strength to keep down legislation that would thwart the good these roads are doingAnd I Because of Ignorance because fanaticism still holds a place in the hearts of men because every legis lator has some disgruntled client who demands that he introduce n bill that will help him settle some imaginary injury How applicable at this time to the State of Kentucky As there can be no doubt to serve a political grudge the leaders of one of the parties intends enacting such legislation as U cripple the business and Influence of the greatest railroad in the South It Is high tfme the press of this State was aroused ofe this matter and the business men of the State brought taco to face with the real facts in the present struggle of a great Industrial promoter with a horde of dew egoguea tbat see nolhuibyonjI set ago grandixement and never had nor never will have a thought as to thof develop aent of the State of Kentucky Ken V s tacky needs to get rid of a horde of poll I ticians and none so bad u those who tand in the way of progren who build their own fortunes on the tearing down of others We hope the good business men in our present Legislature will block any legislation that tends to em barraaa the railroads We need as
