the end Bullitt got a majority There was much confusion Jj during the balloting many counties t changing their votes and a number of outsiders being voted for before the final count gave Bullitt a majority It is now certain that twentytwo of j the twentysix votes of this State will be cast for Taft and that of the remain ing four two will be contested BIG DAY HERE THURSDAY Cow Boys Base Ball

Tberp was claret Later he remembered another cafe farther uptown and another more brilliantly lighted Oumble had found him again this time in the area and this time the same ankle not yet strong had been broken Through the waning winter days Bb lie lay brooding In bitterness realiz- Ing that It was all to do over again Planks shy visits became gradually part of the routine But It was many days beforo Siward perceived In the big lumbering pink fisted man anything to attract him beyond the faint- lyI amused curiosity of one man for another who is In process of establishing himself as the first of a race As for reciprocation In other forms except the most superficial or of permitting a personal note to sound ever so discreetly Siward tolerated no such Idea Even the tentative uti vauces of Plank hinting on willingness and perhaps ability to help SI ward In the Amalgamated tangle were pleasantly Ignored Unpaid services rendered by men like Plank were Impossible any obligation to Plank was utterly out of the question Meanwhile they began to like one another at least Siward often found himself looking forward with pleasure to D visit from Plank There had never been any question of the hatters attitude toward btward Plank began to frequent the house but never Informally It is doubtful whether he could have practiced In formality In that house event at SI wards Invitation One very bad night Plank came to the house and was admitted by Gum ble Wands the second man stoo behind the aged butler Both were apparently frightened That something was amiss appeared plainly enough and Plank instinctive ly producing a card dropped It on ia table and turned to go It may have been that the old butler recognized the Innate delicacy of the motive or It may have been a sudden confidence born of the necessities of the case for he asked Plank to see his young mas 1 ter It was a bad night outside and iIt was a bad night for Siward The master vice had him by the throat lIe sat there clutching the arms of his chair his broken leg in Its plaster casing extended In front of him and when he saw Plank enter he glared at himHour after hour the two men sat there the one white with rage but helpless the other stolid Inert deaf to demands for Intercession with the arch vice dumb under pleadings for a compromise lIe refused to interfere with the butler and Siward Insulted him lie refused to go and find the decau ters himself and Siward deliberately cursed him Once toward morning Siward feign ed sleep and Plank heavy head on his breast feigned It too Then Siward bent over stealthily and opened a drawer In his desk and Plank was on his feet like u flash Jerking the mor ihine from Slwards fingers The doctor arrived at daylight responding to Planks summons by tele phone and Plank went away with the morphine and Swards revolver bulging In the side pockets of his dinner coat He did not come again for a week A short note from Siward started him toward lower Fifth avenue There was little said when he came Into the room Hello Plank Glad to see you Hello Are you all right All right Much obliged for pulling me through Wish youd pull me through this Amalgamated Electric knothole too some day Dodo you mean it ventured Plank turning red with delight Mean It Indeed I doIt you do- Sit here Ring for whatever you want or perhaps youd better go down to the sideboard Im not to be trusted with the odor In the room just yet- I dont care for anything said Plank Whenever you please then You know the house and you dont mind my being unceremonious do you No said Plank Good rejoined Siward laughing I expect the same friendly lath of ceremony from you But that for Plank was impossible All he could do was to care the more or Siward without crossing the border line so suddenly made free All he- could do was to sit there rolling and nrolllng his gloves into wads with his clumsy highly colored hands nod gaze consciously at everything In the room except Slwnrd On that day at Plants shy sugges ion they talked over Slwards business affairs for the first time After that day and for many days the sub- Ject became the keynote to their Intercourse and Siward at tact understood that this man desired to do him a serv- Ice absolutely and purely from a dEs Interested liking for him and as an expression of that liking also ho was unexpectedly made aware of Planks serenely unerrisg business sagacity As for the quid pro quo Siward had Insisted from the first on a business arrangement The treachery of Major elwether through sheer fright had knocked the keystone from the syndicate and the dam which made the golden pool possible collapsed shower- Ing Planks brokers who worked patiently with buckets and mops The double treachery of Quarrier was now perfectly apparent to Plank Slward true to his word held his stock Ini the face of ruin Kemp Ferrall furious with the major and beginning to suspect Quarrier came to Plank for consultation Then the defense formed under Plank Legal machinery was set in motion meeting followed meeting until Harrington cynically showed his band aud Quarrier smiled his rare smile and the- fight against Intercounty was on in- the open preceded by a furious clamor ot charge and countercharge in the columns of the dally press That Quarrier had been guilty of something or other was tho vague iin regslon of that great newj reading public which stunned by the reltern tlon of figures In tho millions turns to the simpler pleasures of a murder trial Besides whatever QuarrIer had done was no doubt done within the chall

am not frightened she said gravely Gravity fell upon him too In this young girls eyes there was no eva ilou For a long while he had felt vaguely that matters were not perfectly balanced between them At moments even he hud felt an Indefinable uneasiness in her presence The sit uation troubled him too and though he had known her from childhood and had long ago learned to discount her vagaries of

settle with Milt Miller sheriff of Breckenridge county for the year 1907 and to ex amine and report on the condition of the road supervisors books respect fully report as follows The settlement for the year is a most excellent one being perfectly balanced and thoroughly accurate Each year we observe the system of county gov ernment becoming more perfect in its details The disbursements as evidenc ed by the settlement show that many valuable and needed improvements were made during the past year in the various parts ot the county wi hout raising the taxes The settlement of 1906 showed 881 delinquents settlement 1907 showed 616 and 1908 shows but 439 And during the present adminis tration delinquent taxes have been re quired to be worked out on the roads thereby losing nothing to the county We note that the assessed valuation of the county is annually increasing and that the county has this year the best prepared Ansessors book that it has ever had most accurate and convenient in every respect The assessment seems to have been closer than usual the sheriff returning no list of taxes collect ed on unassessed property reporting none collected The necessary erection of new bridges and the repairing of old ones will necessitate large expenditures in the future if the safety and conven ience of the people are to considered The commissioners to investigate the condition of county bridges has made a report to which shows that there has been practically no repairing of many steel bridges until last year for many years and further that many bridges of the county are in a bad condition be cause of continued neglect The ex penditures for the year out of the General Expense Fund have been conservative yet they evidence a progres sive spirit in the county We find that the supervisors record of road warrents checks properly with the vouchers credit ed to the sheriff in the settlement of the Road and Bridge funds We find that tht system of book keeping employed by the supervisor and county judge is very complete the first system of its kind the county ever had The super visors accounts are straight and there appears no irregularity in the matter of disbursements The total costs to the county of expending its road money for assistant supervisors c is being de creased under the present system The road records generally are in the best condition they ever were

Hancock county was in town Monday when he made a trip to the Chambers neighborhood to investigate the reported cases of small pox in the family of Mr Frank R Bran dle The cases hud been reported on the Saturday before and Dr Knox found the repot to be correct though the type is very mild and those afflicted are either better or on the verge of re covering The cases reported are those of Mr and Mrs irank Braudle their four sons a daughterinlaw and the family of another son who lives about a mile away The latter family Dr Knox did not see but he sent yellow flags to the place and established quarantine at both houses posting signs atthe front of each place as well All of the parties agreed to abide by the quarantine and dealt with the Health Officer in a very sensible way about the matter The Brandle home has telephone and proper provisions ere made for their comfort during the two or three weeks which will follow the quarantine Dr Knox does not anticipate that there will be any spread of the disease and he re ports the developed cases of a very mild type the victims all being up and about the house A few weeks ago Mr and Mrs Brandle went to Georgia to visit While in the south they passed by a town ten miles from the point of their visit in which there was small pox It is believed that in this manner was the only possible way for them to bring back the disease Clarion FRUITS

night laid them at the front door of the home On the door they tacked this sign Old Man If you raise any tobacco this year there will be hl raised here Night Riders From a window in the kitchen the father watched the operations of the boys and when they retired andwere fast asleep dreaming of the happy days they would spend with rod and line on the creek bank instead of tussling with the worms in the tobacco patch he stole into their rooms In the trousers leg of each he deposited a bunch of the switches and on the seats of their pants was attached the following sign Night Riders Meet me at the barn at 7 oclock in the morning when hl1 raising will begin Old Man The appointment was kept and it caused the mother to devote half a day to patch up the two seats of pants while nature is still at work patching up two other seats The man who tells this story and who lives not far from town says that the tobacco bed is the pride of the neighborhood Miss Ollie May Clarkson of Big Spring has

Ora B Hendricks SeetyaP S Watch for the program nextIweek I bu f I DIRTI ROAD BUILDING Practically Only Three Tools Are Needed GRADER HARROW AND DRAG How Dragging Has Benefited the Highways In an Illinois County Method of Making a Foundation For Good Earth Roads The people in Wabash county Ill are becoming actively enthusiastic In the matter of good country roads of native earth This is especially so In the community west of Allendale 111 and generally so all over the county and In adjoining counties When the work was first started about four years ago few people had any faith In re sults and fewer still took any part In the work But those few kept at It dragging the winter roads rain or I shine muddy or dry till now almost everybody believes In road dragging and a very large number turn out with teams for work every few days says Hiram II Shepard In the Womans National Dally An exceedingly thor ough test is being made of the native earth to see what can be done Al though all are constructed on the same general principles yet many different kinds of road drags have been built and their respective merits tested Most of them are constructed of 3 by 10 Inch timbers from eight to ten feet long and require two teams for draw Ing them Some have steel cutting blades and some have not some have open space between the two main drag timbers and others have solid smooth bottoms They have found so far that the drags with solid bottoms are best for soft muddy roads while those with open spaces between the timbers are best for dry roads or for use just after a dry freeze On Jan 25 the roads In Wabash county were frozen to a depth of fivee or six Inches and the surface had be come comparatively dry and loose On the afternoon of this date all drags were put In operation on the roads One of the drags with two teams pass ed back and forth over six miles of country road In five hours on the after noon of that date The surface of the roads was dry and rotten enough so that the earth was easily moved and being frozen below the track was left as smooth and hard as a floor In many places as much earth was moved and placed perfectly In the center of the road as could be done In the sum mer with a good steel road grader All horse tracks and wagon ruts were filled and after the drag passed both ways the road was left as fine as theI best city pavement After two days travel these roads were In perfect con dition with no ruts or horse tracks deeper than half an Inch There are practically only three tools necessary for making and maintaining good natural earth roads They are the road grader harrow and road drag Road graders cost from 200 to 500 each according to size and style lIar rows are ou all farms and the cost Is reasonably low while the rood drag Is SO very simple of construction that al most any one can make one himself For a road drag to do effective work It must bo heavy enough so that two teams will be required One team Is hitched at either end of the drag and when driven one team Is made to go ahead of the other so that the drag moves forward at an angle of thirty to fortyfive degrees toward the center of the road thus forcing the surface earth always to the center making the road roofllke which allows surface water to escape On the front timber a steel cutting blade Is fastened so as to project below about half an Inch This cutting blade Is not particularly necessary for real muddy roads but It does effective work when the soil Is does effectivi work on a dry soil and Pain WeakensHeadache rheumatism neuralgia or pains of any nature weaken the sys temthey are a strain up on the nerves Almost instant relief can be ob tained by taking Dr Miles AntiPain Pills and with out any bad aftereffects Take one on first

roads In winter when they are wet and muddy or for leveling them In winter Just after a dry freeze By run ping the drag over bad whiter roads horse tracks wagon ruts and other de pressions are filled easily and rapidly the water being forced out so It can run away and the surface left smooth The common field harrow Is also another excellent drag iftid its use is Increasing each year Best results are obtained by using the harrow when the roads are rough but dry It then acts as a leveler but not a grader braking off the clods and bumps mal ing them fine and filling in depressions to prevent the accumulation of surface water which Is the main cause of ball roads Keeping the ruts and holes Oiled Is the greater part of road mainte nance The harrow anti the drug are the two best tools known for doing KI rapidly cheaply and well The foundation for a good natty earth country road Is made by drawing the dirt to the center leaving drain ditches on either side to carry oft the rurfnce water This style might rightly bo called the roof road since the roadbed slopes from the center to the tides like a house roof carrying the water off In a slmlhr manner The roof ridging of native earth roads In the beginning can be done cheaply and neatly only with fe modem Iron road grader which acts as both plow and scraper of former times The blade of the grader Is set at an angle so that the earth at each furrow Is pushed toward the center of the road Besides the rapid work of tin grader the long sharp Iron blade moves straight leaving the surface hard and smooth If maintained in the condition In which the grader leaves It the road will remain dry smooth and passable for a large part of the year Bad Attack of Dysentery Cured An honored citizen of this town was suffering from a severe attack of

call the attention of road masters and automoolllsts to a matter consideration of whch on their part would confer a great benefit on the driving public On some of the roads of Long islands posted a notice requesting persons driving not to confine their vehicles ton single part of the thoroughfare thus producing two ruts constant wear on which uses the roadway up In very short order Compliance with the posted request on the roads mentioned keeps them smooth throughout their entire length and breadth and a delight to motorists and nil others using them Union avenue In this town Flndernc Is a

Minnesota who recently discussed macadam roads with the members of the road find bridge committee of the county board also discussed the specifications for Ramsey county road work and gave the members of the commit tee many valuable suggestions Mr Cooley spoke of the growing popularity of macadam roads In the eastern states where the best roads that mon ey can procure are demanded Ills opinion was that a good earth road Is the best that can be had but they are hard to keep In repair whereas macadam roads may be built to last Scientific methods should be adopted and specifications must be carried out to the letter In building a macadam road the foundation Is the main thing The voids in the crushed limestone founda tion should be tightly filled with gravel instead of clay which Is sometimes used A very little clay may be used but for filling purposes gravel is much more satisfactory There should be no shoulder on the side of the road but the macadam should be gradually feathered off to the edge and made water tight The material used for a filler should be applied before the road Is rolled On top of a foundation of four inches of crushed limestone an Inch and a half of pit gravel Wash the gravel In with a street sprinkler and then roll The next layer should consist of three Inches of smaller hard stone treated In the same way and then a layer of pit gravel feathered ort to the edge Mr Cooley said all the materials should be specified and nothing left to the choice of the contractor Even the gravel pit should bo designated The contract should be so worded that In the event that the gravel pit designated failed to pan out well all the way through the contractor can be required to go elsewhere for this supply upon making an equitable adjustment with him Such an arrangement would be far more economical than to permit the contractor to go on with unsatisfactory materials In this way the board could control the sources of supply and noth ing would be left to the whim of the contractorMr also went into the ques tion of maintenance of roads which he considered quite as Important as construction Tho contractor ho said should be required to keep a man on the road for two weeks after its com pletion to look out for defects Faithful Rural Mail Carrier With the unique record of not having missed a tiny from his route except the holidays

observed in the Highlands though they were even then fast dying out From the eleventh volume of that great work which was published in 1701 and the succeeding years we learn on the authority of the minister of Cullender Perth hlre that the boys of the township assembled in a body proeceeded to digI a circular trench leaving the soil in the center undisturbed so as to form a low table of green turf sut ficlcnt In size to accommodate the whole party They lighted a tire and prepared u ustard of milk and eggs and a large oatmeal cake which they baked upon u stone placed fn the embers When they had eaten the custard they divided the cake into as runny equal portions its there were persons in the assembly and daubed one of those pieces with charcoal until it was perf tly black They then placed nil the pie es of cake together in a bonnet and each in turn theebonnet being entitled to the last piece The boy who drew the blackened por tion was destined to be sacrifice and was compelled

peasant farms of the Black for est are handed down from father to son in a direct line often dating back 400 years says Antiquary There Is no division as In France All falls to the heir only here It is not the eldest but the youngest son who Inherits It Is rare that a bur peas ant dies as reigning head When he gets on In years he abdicates In or der to end his days In the Iclbgediugc haus dower house which stands beside each hot steading That he does so in favor of his youngest son Is very sensible Were It the elder ho would have no peace for as soon as ho married he would try to induce his parents to retire just at an nge when power is sweetest and best exercised For this reason the practical farmers of bygone genera tlons decided to hand over the succes slon to the youngest since when Benja min Is a full grown man father Jacob Is old and glad to rest This law of Inheritance goes by the name of vortel Should the heir of his own free will desire to resign In favor of his elder brother the latter must buy the property from him In such a case the younger may be termed a kind of Esau Birds That Fight Eagles In Foula one of the Shetland is lands the natives make a business of rearing skau gulls In order to rid the Island of the eagles that congregate there and commit many depredations The magnificent red sandstone cliffs that skirt the northwestern coast be came a favorite haunt of the eagles and in this Inaccessible spot they In creased so rapidly that they became a terror to the farmers and fishermen who dwell on this isolated spot The skau gulls are also strong and fierceI and the Inveterate foes of the eagle In battle the gulls are nearly always victorious and so the Inhabitants of Foula hit upon the novel plan of feed- Ing and caring for the skau gulls which though formidable to their feathered enemies are very peaceful and docile when brought In contact with man A Delicious Custard The recipe for this delicate dessert has been handed down In my family

o El WHEN FASTING IS FATAL Lots of Weight Below a Certain Point Brings Death During a long fast the dally loss ot weight becomes gradually less and less Death comes when the total loss has reached a certain percentage which percentage varies with the original weight Fat animals may lose halt their weight thinner ones perhaps two fifthsA man or woman of rather spare habit weighing 143 pounds could therefore lose about fiftyfive pounds rearopiration and blood pressure remain Unaltered during starvation but the tem perature of the body falls nearly a de gree in most cases The secretion of gastric

WRITE IN SECRET The Way Chinese Court Historians Do Their Work There are court historians in China as there are in other countries but there is one striking difference and It lies In the fact that the work of the Chinese court historians does not see the light until the reigning dynasty comes to an end In this way these Celestial historians have an opportunity to describe most truthfully the virtues and vices of the valorous rulers and the real signifi cance of the events which take place during their regime They can write what they please without fear of cen sure for they know that their work will not be published as long as the reigning dynasty lasts This has been the rule for more thau 2000 years the first court historian having been appointed by the Imperial house of Han which reigned from 200 B C until 25 A D The duty of these historians Is to write plain accounts of all tho events that occur during their tenure of office At regular intervals their com pleted work is taken from them and is locked up in an iron safe or vault There It remains until the first mem ber of a new dynasty ascends the throneIt then given with all the other histories in the vault to the court historian who is then living and from the mass of documents he Is expected to prepare a truthful history of the dynasty which has just expired Tortoise That Dreads Rain The tortoise Is not an animal one would naturally fix upon as likely to be afraid of rain but It Is singularly so Twentyfour hours or more before rain falls the Gallapagos tortoise makes for some convenient shelter On a bright clear morning when not a cloud is to be seen the denizens of a tortoise farm on the African coast may sometimes be seen beading for the nearest overhanging rocks When that happens the proprietor knows that rain will come down during the day and as a rule It comes down In torrents The sign never falls This preservation or whatever you may call It which exists In many birds and beasts may be ex plained partly from the Increasing weight of the atmosphere when rain is forming partly by habits ofllving and partly from the need of moisture which Is shared by all Knew His Dickens A third form boy
