fishing excursion off Setncklt Point IThat Aidilng trip had unexpected and fateful results The captain had called on Mlsa Prissy and her slater the niorulng of his arrival In Orliam and an was his custom hud brought each of them a present exactly alike of coune He had promised to dine at mthe Allen house the following Sunday IHut it happened that IVIcg Myrlck infrequentjhe seized the opportunity to hall the catbont containing Bradley and Cap loin tiara as It paused Ids qunhaug dory and hog for a passage up Mr Peleg Myrlck was n hermit Ho llvotl alone In a little two room shanty on

concertina was ed Pole was certain that the howling was an attempt nt singing and boasted that Skeesslcks that wits the dogs name had an ear for music jest like a human Among his other accomplishments Mr Myrlck numbered that of weather prophet He boasted that he could smell a storm further n a cat can smell flub It was odd but lie really did seem able to foretell or guess what the weather would be along the Or ham coast and the longshoremen swore hy ids prophecies He was a great talker when ho had any one to talk to and was a gossip whose news items were usually about throe months old Cnptnln Ezra np predated odd characters nnd he wel coined the chance to got a little fun out of Poleg Well Poleg aald tho captain fiR the catboat stood about on the first leg of the homeward stretch whats the

Never mind that Hows the qua haugln nowadays Glttln a fair pricePretty fair replied Peleg Then with the persistency of the born gos sip not to be so easily diverted from his subject he wont on i told Mllssy that Lid she said there wont scarcely a doubt that you meant busness this time Said you fetched presents every time you come home Said the only doubt in folks minds was whether twas Prissy or Temp you was after Said sho was sure you was after one on em cause she as much as asked cm one time when she was nt their house and they didnt deny it Mr Myrlck talked steadily on this und other subjects nil the way to the wharf but Captain Ezriiteas silent and thoughtful lIe shook hands with Bradley at the gate of the Travelers Rest and said goodby In an absent minded way- I spose youll bo rojind to dinner Sunday Capn Ez1 said the boy hey Sunday Well I dont know It might be that I shall be called back to the schooner sooner than I expect Cant tell Sure enough the next day the Bis tern received a note from their ex pected guest saying that he was obliged to leave at once for Portland anti could not therefore be with then on Sunday The ladies were disappointed but thought nothing more of the mat ter at the time It was nearly six months before the captain visited Or ham again and during this visit he did not come near the big house He waylaid Bradley however asked him all about himself how he was getting on at school and the like but when the boy asked If he the captain wasnt coniln round to see the folks pretty soon the answer was vague unsatisfactoryWhy knows Ill have time was the reply Im pretty busy and Give em my regards will yon Brad Ive got to be runnln on now longI the same during the next shore leave the following Novem ber Captain Tltcomb saw Bradley several times gave him a six bladed jackknife and took him for a drive over to the big cranberry swamp owned by the Ostnblo company but he did not call on the old maids Three more years of school and vacations with chores and sailing and cranberry picking followed Bradley was sixteen Ills voice having passed through tho squeaky changing po vied now gave evidence of becoming what Miss Tempy called

neckties wore no longer selected by Miss Tompy To be seer with girl was not so sIssified in his mind as Iit used to be hut he still stuck to Gus and she was his first choice at parties and he saw her home from prayer meeting occasionally As for the dog girl herself she too paid more attention to clothes and her pots though still numerous and Just ns disreputable in appearance were made to behave with more decorum Her hair was carefully braided now her dresses came down to her boot tops and Miss Tempy grudgingly admitted that if twas anybody else I should say sIll was likely to be good lookln when she grows up The last day came and Bradley and Gus were to graduate In Orim fit there is no graduation day The event fun ending of the winter term is tho last tiny and all the parents and red

feel well and I also give It to my children Peruna Is the best medicine for coughs and colds I have told many people how much Peruna has helped me Peruna tends to lessen the cough de creases the expectoration strengthens the patient Increases the appetite and In many cases procures sound refresh ing sleep But the value of Peruna In the treat ment of a case of consumption is not so great as it is in tho prevention of con sumption Since it is well known that consump tion begins with a common cold or ca tarrh any medicine that can be relied upon to relieve these must be regarded as a preventive of consumption Thousands of cases of Incipient consumption or chronic coughs or settled colds have reported Peruna as being a safe and reliable remedy for these aUImenta A R Fisher threw

to the Senate More Testl mony In Brownsville Case Washington Jan 15 PresIdent Roosevelt in a special message trnns mltted to the senate the results of the Investigation into the Brownsville af fray by Hon Milton D Purdy assist ant to the attorney general and Major Augustus P Blocksom of the inspec tor generals department U S A to fiether with Secretary of War Tafts reports thereon The testimony taken by Purdy and Major Blocksqm ni BrownsviUe and other points covets 200 printed pages In the presidents opinion it thoroughly substantiates the charge that the shooting up o the town was done by soldiers of the Twentyfifth infantry and Justifies his action in dismissing the three com panics Along with the inpanOe lit sent to the senate the empty Spring field shells clips and bullet gatherei on the scene of the rioting My evidence says the message proves beyond the possibility of a doubt that some individuals among the colored troops dismissed commit ted these outrages and that others hal knowledge of the deed and shielded the guilty front the law The prest dent dismisses as ridiculous tht charge that Blownsvlllo citizens com mltted the outrage with a view to their throwing odium on negro troops and obtaining their disnyssaT Tha the criminals were soldiers is shown by the fact that reputable witnesses saw their uniforms heard their vole rand recognizing them as negroes tha Springfield rifles were used no weal oils of that kind being in the hands of civilians The president adds As to the order dismissing these individuals without honor and declar ing the effect of such discharge a bar to their future reenlistment there U no doubt of my constitutional power The order was within the constitution and the laws and can not be reviewed or reversed save by another

BeingMade Like Bnncofl ghost the talk of a railroad for Brandenburg wont down but on the contrary wnat at first might have bran regarded as Spe culative talrfhHS now begun to assume definite shape arid we may sately say that a railroad for Brandenburg is almost an assured tact Chief Engineer L M Cox and his assistant M H Wood ot toe Hendor eon Route left here last Tuesday and went over three prospactive touts going as far as Concuidia and that they were satisfied that a desiraole grade can be secured over one of the routes gene over la evidenced by the fact that a corps of engineers have been put in the field to the purpose of making preliminary surveys with a view ofI coating a route from Long Branch to Stephensport W A Rhodes accom panlea Messrs Cox and Woods en trseir trip as guide AOne of the objects Iin making this survey is to establish a better grade than that over which tae present roanI is operated from Long Branch to points down the river and is the in tention of the Henderson officials to re duce the Doe Run trestle from 180 to 60 ft which they say can be done by making the proposed change in the load bad from here to Stephensport While the above seems to be the main reason tot desiring to change the course of the road yet it is thought by those high up in railroad olroleI hat the present move may have some thing to do with the railroad built from Madlsonville to connect with the Henderson Route which in all probab ility will enter at Clnverport comIng from Fordsville over the old road bed of the Victoria and Uoveroort railroad as it could bo pat in good condition at no great outlay Aside from this by adopting the route over the old road bed abOve mentioned they would get around the steep grades which are on the branah from Irvinaton to Fords villa Another feature which no doubt had considerable to do with the con templated change in the Hendersons route through our county is the in creased business that road will secure the proposed change which of it 1If is no small argument in favor of e change when you take into con sideration the hauling of rock from our present cement works together wth the business for the 1000000 which will also be located along the line of tne new route besides all the freight and passenger business from this and the Indiana side of the Ohio river clear through to Leavenworth IndMeade County

weak and false imita Lion of real commerce and industry If the city council collected Its capital by the Issue of prospectuses to the public who would Invest a sovereign on the faith of Its promises
