to do when there iisI more to be dono than tho multiplied mil lions can do in tho next century God has given us the greatest country the world ever saw in tho greatest age The vast fields for agriculture mid the earth full of all kinds of minerals are beyond comprehension and computation What we are and what we shall bo as a nation remains yet to be told Our western country and especially the coast so long thinly settled is soon to come to the front in population wealth and industry It comes nearer having every thing for mans comfort than tho East It has a better climate n better market better timber it Is bet ter for fruit and bettor for agriculture and stock raising as grass is abundant and the time for winter feeding is but short All those advantages will rapid ly develop this PacifIo coast Thoro are still other things that will in the near future add to her wealth and progress First I will mention the Nicaragua Canal which we expect in a few years to havo completed This will connect the East with the West and no doubt bring about a rapid progress Second tho gold fields of Alaska with its wealth yet to bo developed will no doubt bring about a rapid progress in furnishing a fine market for produce As they produce nothing but minerals they will depend upon the coast towns for supplies In view of all those things I would say to my friends of Kentucky now is

step of the way has been bitterly contested and that there has been ad vancement in the rights of women at all is due entirely to the fact that the few not the many possessed the right to insure the change Had it been necessary to submit the question of coeducation to popular vote before the experiment had been tried there would not be 40000 young women studying in cur colleges and universities today The concensus of public opinion in 1830 was that the brains of women were quite incompe tent to receive a college education that thel physical health could not endure a fouweara course of study and that a college educated woman was an anoma ly alike repulsive to men and women Had a vote been taken coeducation would have been overwhelmingly de feated Tree progress has come because women of a

Cloverport post office extends over a period of seventy two years from 1828 Before that time Oloverport mall was addressed to Har dinsburg and brought nere by a special carrier sent from this place At that time stamps and envelopes were not used and letters came folded and sealed with sealing wax marked due 25c Need less to say that the amount of correspondence done then was vastly less than now or th6 poorhouses would have had to be enlarged to accommodate the ma jority of the community The name Lallelst has from the first been connected with the postal service in this town some member of that fam fly holding the position of postmaster for more than half a century In a book owned by Mr Albert LaHeist are the complete records of the business done In the office from its beginning until the death of Mr John LaHeist in 1884 Ail the LaHeitta have made reliable meth odical and efficient postmasters The three LaHeist brothers George Sam and John moved to Kentucky from Pennsylvania in the early part of this century John was employed first ae mail carrier then George was given charge of the post office upon Its estab lishment He was then proprietor of a small store on the corner where now stands the Breckenrldga Inn and it was at this place that our grandfathers called for their mall The total recepta of this flrt year amounted to 3567 and the salary paid the post master was 1608 Apropos of progression let us remark here that the total receipts in that same office for 18S9 were 223271 and our pus ent postmaster draws a yearly salary of 1100 with allowances that amount to 1300 I During his term of office Mr George LaHeist moved the office to a house built for it on the site now occupied by Mr Julius Noltes house and his brother Mr Sam LaHelet had charge of it When the Republicans came in power upon the election of Lincoln Mr George LaHeist who had kept it during all the administrations from the sixth that of John Q Adams was supplanted by his brother John At that time the office was paying 400 a year The most of us remember Uncle Johnnie who was postmaster twenty three years and who died at his post in 1884 During his term the office was moved three times first to the place where Mr J H Wills now lives then to a log house on the spot now occupied by Pophama saloon and again to the property now owned by Mr Nolte His son and assistant Mr Albert LaHeist served out hIs fathers unexpired term It was while Uncle Johnnie was post master in 1880 that the office became a money orderoffice When Cleveland became president Miss Lela Henly was appointed post mistress which office she filled accepts theaplace it now stands Her successor was Judge Wm Ahl now of Hardinsburg who remained in office until the reelec- tIon of Cleveland when Miss Healy 1again held it for four years It was dur ing the term of the genial and accommodating Judge Ahl that the office became a third cass or presidential office Our next and present postmasterjls the Hon Jonas D Wilson appointed by President McKinley He and his popu lar and efficient assistant Marion Weatherholt are succeeding in serving the public acceptably and at the same time are doing their full duty to

reported that the 21st Init was having trouble with the insurgents The 21st was soon relieved by the 37th Infan tryHere we were surrounded on all sides by the insurgents in good trenches We were well prepared for fighting and when Col Bullard of the 39th took charge we made the niggers scarce On Boylega with a small detachment of men surprised the enemy and killed fourteen men among whom was a Japanese officer They also captured several guns and some ammunition On Jan 1st the 39th reinforced by it other battalions and well supplied with ammunition went out to attack the enemy After a hard fight the enemy was routed with fifty killed andseventy five taken prisoner Our loss was none killed and several only slightly wound ed After some slight skirmishing an other town was taken and we moved back to Calamba Just before Jan 9th at daylight we at tacked St Thomas and did some sharp lighting This resulted in considerable loss to the enemy and we lost one pri vate and had two officers and two privates wounded The next battle was San Diegj ealdto hays been the hardestt fought on the south line There wen scores of the enemy killed but as each fell there were from two to twenty ready to take his gun The Filipinos are poor marksmen and seldom get one of our boys in that battle however we lost one and another died a few days afterward After a good nights rest we started o a six days march to the eastern coast oif Luzon In one of the scraps on the way private Hudson of Frankfort Ky was wounded twice but not seriously Af ter reaching the coast we marched dl rectly south about fifty miles on an average swimming five rivers a day We made rafts to carry our supplies and officers but we pnvates had to swim them On account of the hardships and exposures half of our men were unable to traili ed we were in the mountains fifty mlle from provision supplies with a lot of sick men The few fellows who had saved a little hard tack were offered a dollar apiece for them We killed some water buffalo in the forest which we ate without salt or bread We lived on this and sugar cane and cocoanuts for four days and marched seven miles every day On the firth day we reached the 30th Infantry and each man received his al lowance of four hard tacks two pieces of bacon and one pint ofcoffee We were the happiest fellows on earth that night When we had rested a few days we marched to Santa Cruz a distance oft about twentyfive miles where we were- loaded on transports and taken back to Oalamba the place we bad left Jan 1st We had traveled 630 miles and were barefooted and bailees and our clothes were all dirty and torn In a short while however we had l1ewclothe and were living like kings comparedI with our former hardships Several boys have been writing to masking eI my advice about

Secretary of Agriculture the Hon James Wilson was present and addressed the assembly He said in part- I would quit raising wheat I would not send a bushel of grain outside of Tennessee as you are not getting enough to justify your growing It There are much more inviting fields in your direc tions It is very rare that we get such prices for saddle horses as they are wIl- ling to pay now The whole world wants horses The people of the United States can produce horses cheaper than other people and you Southern gentlemen can train them better than anyone else The world will let you make your own prices and fine horses of the kind that they call Irish horses go from the United States to Ireland and then are sold to the Brit- Ish for any price you ask and I would advise yon to turn your energies In the direction of the horse Industry rather than to growing eight or ten bushels of wheat per acre and which Is taking the very life out rf your soli Another thing that I would ad vise you

events and catastrophes it might seem that the great Democratic party had at the present time reached its climax of dissesslon and disaster but a revision of facts clearjj ly shows that such Is not the case There was a time in the party when contrary opinions caused enmitywhen dissenting i views meant blood shed and when war frenzied men formed and reformed new and old political parties The divisions of the Democratic party reached their height in the summer and fall of 1800 That summer there were three candidates for president in the Democratic party against Lincoln and Hamlin in the Republican party The northern wing nominated Stephen A Douglass and Johnson who were in favor of preserving the union at all haz ards the southern wing nominated John 0 Breckennge a rebel of the strongest type with Lane for vice president who 1 advocated the immediate establishment of a Southern Confederacy and the constitutional union party nominated Bell and Everett who represented the conservative element of the party This was a hotly contested campaign and much bitter feeling was engendered tt On account of the division of Democratic I votes Lincoln was elected at the November election by a 40 per cent vote Thusc the war which was inevitable but which might have been postponed four years was brought on and Apr 12th 1801 afew weeks after Lincoln was inaugurated the first gun of the civil war was fired During this crisis the Democrats of our state were not idle Here in Breck enridge county a meeting was held in indorsement of the Conservative Democrats and the following resolutions were written by the late David R Murray Sr of this place and adopted by the county convention They are interesting In showing us the position taken by our brother Democrats of forty years

all would have beon well but he did not stop Next day he called on me tot talk over the late web It wasnt ten minutes sub before I began to doubt Mm I found that ho didnt know the T t I lET FOTn WITH

to cotton hooks to ball clubs and to long han died shovels It was my duty and r the circumstances to preserve my diy nlty and It has gone down In history that I preserved It I Insisted hot we fight

Appomattox I stood on my dignity sub stood on my dignity and rejected tho weapons No gentleman had over fought a duel with a scythe In his hands It would degrade the code degrade tho code sub and make me a public laughing stock I stormed at that man sub I begged and entreated and even sought to brlbo him to meet mo with pistols or swords But be was firm He was settled on scythes and I would not budge I bowed him out and appealed to the public And on my bonah sub on the honah of the man who led the desperate charge at Cedar Mountain the public agreed with General Blum Yes sub the public contended that It was my duty as a I gentleman to engage In a duel with scythes I brought forward the code for 300 years past but It made no dif ferenceA with scythes sulin meet- Ing on the field of bonab with farm ing Implements No gentlemans dig nlty would permit of It I argued and protested and disputed but General Blum and the public were firm In standing to my guns Ilst prestige At the end of three days scarcely a man In town would nod to me and the newspapers were asking if Cole nel Bunker was afraid It was then I sub and only then that I resolved to fight the general with his own weap I I prestlgeI1 r had my pick of 20 different scythes and I was determined from the first that I would begin at the generals heels and gradually cut him down to his neck No mercy should bo shown In such a case Public excitement ran as high as if a state election was be ling held and when the morning of the duel came there were hundreds on the ground to see I set foth with my fccythe on my shoulder and was first on the ground but the general was only a few minutes behind me I had planned to begin at his heels but his plan was to begin at my bend I saw It in his eyes as we stood there Yes sub he meant to decapitate me at the first sweep Mo than that he had sent to New Orleans for a special scythe and he had secured one about two rods long By and by we were ready I felt my loss of dignity but I had to save my honah The word was about to be given and In another moment the em blems of time would have been swish Ing through the air when a mewl who was chased by a nigger came gallop- Ing that way He busted through the people sub he busted his way right along and he struck the general and knocked him Into a ditch and then planted both heels on my stomach and rendered me unconscious for half an hour The duel didnt go on When I got my breath again I offered to pro I ceed from a sitting position and although the general was telescoped by I the collision It Is duo to him to say that he would have stood on one leg and fought It out But It was not to be The public decided that all par ties Including the mewl had wiped away any stains on their reputations and we were escorted to town by our partisans And of course you and the general drank together and made up I asked Of cose sub of cosethat is the general didnt invite me and I didnt Invite him but when a third party proposed cocktails a party whoso cred accompanled sub we had Imbibed and replaced our glasses when J looked at my late an I saidIGeneral I cannot doubt your valor sub And he looked at mo with

that the earth some day Is to be destroyed by a gigantic cataclysm but fall to agree upon the how Dr floury Smith Williams In writing In Harpers Monthly on Some Unsolved Scientific Problems says If so much uncertainty attends these fundamental questions as to tho earths past and present It Is not strange that open problems as to her future are still more numerous We have seen how according to Professor Darwins computations the moon threatens to come back to earth with destructive force some day Yet Pro fossor Darwin himself urges that there are elineuts of fallibility In the data Involved that rob the computation of all certaintyMuch same thing Is true of per haps all the estimates that have been mode as to the earths ultimate fate Thus It has been suggested that even should the suns heat not forsako us our day will become month long and then year long that all the water of the globe must ultimately filter into Its depths and all the air fly off Into space leaving our earth as dry and as devoid of atmosphere as the moon and finally that other friction If It exists or In default of that meteoric friction must ultimately bring the earth back to the sun But In all theso prognostications there are possible compensating factors that vitiate the estimates and leave the exact results In doubt Thu last word of the cosmic science of our cen tury Is a prophecy of evilif annihila tion bo an evil But It Is loft for the science of another generation to point out moro clearly the exact terms In which tho prophecy Is most likely to be fulfilled Found the Ends An Irishman who was out of work went on board a vessel that was In tho harbor and asked the captain If he could find him work on the ship Well said tho captain at tho same tlmo handing the Irishman a piece of

teamsters In the mountains It simply paralyzed me for I didnt see anything but destruction for everything In tho way There was no turning back or whipping up to get out of tho way for the load was
