SUCCESSU Crowds From Everywhere Gather Together and Have the Time of Their Lives LOUISVILLE DAY WAS A RECORD 8REAKER The Live Stock and Floral Hall Exhibits Were Exceedingly Fine THE MANAGEMENT TO BE CONGRATULATED The Fair was perfect The crowd was the best and largest that has ever gath ered in Breckenridge county The stock could not have been excelled else where the treatment by the Hardins burg people has never been equaled Taking the event all in all it was bril liant it was a crowning success and the Breckenridge Fair Association should gladly be proud of the outcome The financial side too no doubt will be far better than it was last year In reporting the Fair the News gives its columns to the people and their opinions about it which is as follows Coming home on the train from life Fair Thursday night were several young girls from different places in the county talking about the glorious time they had during the whole three days Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday It was most interesting to listen to their remarks The first one to speak when the crowd had settled down was prim little Miss Stephensport She said Tuesday was the best day for me I didnt expect to see so many folks the first day but in the afternoon there was a big mass on the grand stand and everybody looked so fresh and sweet and you could hear the Har dinsburg band so distinctly too Wednesday for me spoke up Miss Irvington liThe more folks I see from Custer and Louisville the happier I am She must have been supremely happy for the twelve thousand people were principally Louisvillians The persons from other places were sprink led over the jam like pepperover a cantaloupe Mr Bruce Haldeman said Mr Vic Robertson the president and Mr M Beard the secretary should be congratulated upon having so many visitors to entertain Those horses exclaimed Miss Bew leyville of course she was daffy about the horses for she took a blue ribbon in the ladies riding ringWhen Beard Bios got that loving cup I cheered until I was hoarse No one could have blamed her for their display of horses was exceedingly fine It de lighted hundreds of persons to see Mr Herbert Beard walk out of the ring carrying the handsome silver cup The only thing I objected to about girltimen there I couldnt decide I went to the fortune teller though and she told me the first man I met who wore a green tie was my fiance And what V do yon think he was that grand doctor from Livermore I think we girls from Cloverport had a better time on the midway than any others We had our pictures made rode on the merrygo round and went to every show except the moving picture showonly courting couples went there Somebody said that Mr Preston Green and Mr Lewis Kincheloe kept that place up Oh that fine stock Mr Geo Lyd dan had exclaimed Miss Glendeane If I could raise cattle like his I would willingly live down on the farm forever You know the person who gave me the most pleasure at the Fair was Mr Jeff Hook Every time he sent the water wagon around I gave him a vote of thanks for trying to keep the dust down said a girl who lives on the river bank near Addison- If I live to be a hundred years old I shall never never forget that cordial earnest invitation that Mr Jess Howard gave out through the mega phone as we said goodbye to the old fair grounds about dusk Thursday It went rightto my heart J spoke an at tractive girl from Elizabethtown Come back come back in 1909 Mr Howard called out until every person had left the grandstand Great was our County Fair FIRST DA- YCATTLEJERSEYSCLASS A Special by Wm Burnett Louisville

James Bansemer to believe that his henchman had not been Drooms mlstakonI the lady certainly did not correspond r to what his memory recalled Investi gatlon however assured him that the Cables In the mansion near tho lake + were the people he had known In New York Bansemer took no one Into his confidence not even Droom Once con vinced that the erstwhile fireman was now the rich and powerful magnate he Bet to work upon the machinery which was to extract personal gain from the secret in his possession He soon learned that the child was a young wo man of considerable standing in society but there was no way for him to ascertain whether Frances Cable had told the truth to her husband In those dreary far west days Bansemer was rich enough but avarice had become a habit The flightII from New York had deprived but little in worldly goods His 111 got ten gains came with him and Invest ments were Just as easy and Just as safe in Chicago as in New York Now be saw a chance to wring a handsome sum from the rich woman whose only possession had been love when he first knew her If the secret of Janes origin still remained locked up In her r heart the effort would be an easy one He learned enough of David Cable however to know that If he shared the secret the plan would be profitless and dangerousIt uncertainty that kept him from calling at the Cable home like wise from writing a note which might prove a most disastrous folly Time and circumstance could be his only friends and he was accustomed to the whims of both He read of the dinners and entertainments given by the Ca bles and smiled grimly Time had worked wonders for them Scandal be knew could undo all that ambition and pride had wrought He could well afford to walt- However he did not have long to wait for his opportunity came one night in Hooleys theater Graydon and he occupied seats in the orchestra near the stage and not far from the tower right hand boxes It was during 4 the busy Christmas holidays but the star was of sufficient consequence to pack the house The audience was no and of a fashionable one Time and again some strange influence drew his gaze to the gay party in one of the lower boxes The face of the woman nearest to him was not visible but the two girls who sat forward turned oc tuslonully to look over the audience and bo saw that they wore pretty one txcoptlonally so One of the men was pray haired and strong featured the others were quite too Insignificant to do of Interest to him The woman ivhoso back he could see did not look tut over the audience Her indiffer taco was so marked that It seemed de Uborate At lust he felt that her eyes wore upon him Ho turned quickly True enough for with lips slightly parted tier whole attitude suggestive of In tense restraint Mrs Cable was staring holpleeely Into the eyes of the tuna who could destroy her with a word Tho one thing Unit flashed through BKnseniers brain was the realization that she was far more beautiful than ho bad expected her to be There was a truly aristocratic loveliness In the rather piquant face and she undenla bly possessed manner Maturity had Improved her vastly he confessed with strange exultation age had been kinder than youth He forgot the play seldom taking his oyes from the back a which again had been turned to him t Calculating lu reached the conclusion that she was not more than forty years of ago More than once he made some remark to his son only to surprise that young nun glancing surreptitiously at tho face of the more beautiful of the I two girls Even in this early stage Jamos Buusemcr began to gloat over i the beauty of this new found old ac quaintanceIn of the theater as they were leaving he deliberately doffed hla hat and extended a pleasant hand to the wife of David Cable She turned deathly pale and there was a startled piteous look In her eyes that convinced him beyond all shadow of a doubt There was nothing for her to do but Introduce him to her husband Two minutes later Graydon Bansemer and Jane Cable strangers until then were asking each other how they liked tha play and Fate was at work A few weeks after this scene at tho theater young Mr Bansemer dashed across the hall from tho elevator and entered his fathers office just as Elian Droom was closing up Wheres the governor Mr Droom the asked deliberately brushing past the old cleric in the outer office Left some time ago replied Droom Bomowhat uacraciopalx WI blue pees r staring past tho young man with a steadiness that suggested reproach be cause he was out of the direct line of vision It Is nearly 0 oclock Hes never here after G I know that he I asked you If you knew of his whereabouts Do you Jrnot The self confident athletic youth did not stand In physical awe of the clerk No was the simple and sufficient answerWell then Im off said Graydon a trifle less airily Drooms overcoat was on and button ed up to his chin His long feet were encased In rubbers of enormous size and uncertain age There must have been no blood In the veins of this grim old man for the weather was far from cold and the streets were surprisingly dry for Chicago- I am closing the office for the day said Droom For no apparent reason a smile spread over the lower part of his face and Graydon bold as he was turned his eyes away- I thought Id stop in and pick up the governor for a ride home in my motor said he turning to the door Yours Is one of the first out here I suppose came from the thin lips of the old clerk- Graydon laughed Possibly The company charges a nickel a ride half a dime Going down sir Graydon had rung for the elevator and was waiting In front of the grating- A look containing a curious com pound of affectionate reproach and a certain senile gratification at being made the object of the boys conde scending raillery crossed Drooms coun tenance Without however answering his question he slowly and carefully closed the door tried It vigorously and Joined Bansemer at the shaft With Droom words were unnecessary when actions could speak for themselves Still living over In Wells street Mr Droom went on Graydon thorough lly at home with the man whom he had feared and despised by stages from childhood up Its good enough for me said Droom shortly Tlsnt Michigan There was a startled piteous look in her eyes avenue the Drive or Lincoln Park boulevard but Its Just as swell as 1 am or ever hope to be Theres nothing against Wells street butIt got ashamed of itself when It crossed the river They call it Fifth avenue sneered Droom but It Isnt tile avenue is It Bausemer was surprised to note a tone of affectionate pride in the question No Indeed I Oh theres only one Mr Graydon said the old clerk quite warmly our own Fifth avenue I hind no Idea you cared so much for swagger things Mr Droom ob nerved the other genuinely surprised Even Broadway Is heaven to me laid Droom some of tho rasp gone from his voice Goodby I got this way he said when they reached the sidewalk a little later The young man watched his gaunt figure as it slouched away In the semidarkness By George the old chap Is actually homesick muttered he I didnt himIrooms over a millinery shop in Wells street There was a bedroom at the back and a living room in front overlooking the street from the third story of the building Of the bedchamber there is but little to say except that it contained a bed I a washstand a mirror two straight backed chairs and a clothespress Droom went out for his bath every Saturday night The living room however was queer In more ways than one In one corner on a chest of draw ers stood his oil stove while in tho op posite corner a big sheet iron heater made itself conspicuous Firewood was piled behind the stove winter and summer Droom lamenting that one could not safely discriminate between the seasons In Chicago The chest of drawers contained his stock of pro visions his cooking and table utensils his medicine and a small assortment of I r 04040 By George Barr McCuicheon Author of Beverly of Graustark Et- c4Oy0444444 carpenters tools lIe had no uso for IceboxA old enough to warm the heart of the most ardent antiquarian held his small and unusual collection of books Standing side by side on the same shelf were French romances and the Holy Bible much bcthumbed and penciled There were schoolbooks alongside of sentimental love tales Greek lexicons and quaint old fairy stories law books and works on crim inology books on botany geology anatomy and physics In all perhaps there were 200 volumes A life of Na poleon revealed signs of almost con stant usage There were three por traits of the Corsican on the dingy green walls The strange character of the man was best shown by the pictures that adorned or rather disfigured the walls Vulgar photographs and prints were be seen on all sides Mingled toII these cheap creations were copies of famous Madonnas quaintII Scriptural drawings engravings Saviour and an allegorical colored I print which emphasized the Joys of heaven There was also a badly drawn but idealized portrait of Droom done In crayon at the ago of twenty This portrait was one of his prized posses sions lIe loved It best because it was a bust and did not expose his longitu dinal defects If Droom ever had entertained a feminine visitor in his apartments there is no record of the fact But few men had seen the inte rior of his home and they had gone away with distressed perplexed sensi bilities He cooked his own meals on the oil stove and alone ate them from the lit tle table that stood near the heater Occasionally he went out to a nearby eating house for a lonely feast His rooms usually reeked with the odor of boiled coffee burned cabbage and grease pungent chemicals and long suffering bed linen Of his front room it may be said that it was kitch en dining room parlor library work shop laboratory and conservatory Four flowerpots In which as many geraniums existed with difficulty despite Drooms constant and unwaver ing care occupied a conspicuous place on the window sills overlooking the street He watched over them with all the tender solicitude of a lover sur prising as it may appear when one pauses to consider the vicious exterior of the man Droom was frugal lIe was In truth a miser It any one had asked him what he expected to do with the money he was putting away In the bank he could not have answered calculating as he was by nature He had no rein tine to whom he would leave it and he had no inclination to give up the habit of active employment His salary was small but he managed to save- more than halt of It fora rainy day as he said lIe did his reading and ex pcrlmcntlni by kerosene light and went to bd by candlelight saving ai I few pennies a week in that way The windows In his apartment were wash ed not oftener than once a year He was seldom obliged to look through them during the day and their only duty at night was to provide ventila tion and even that was characteristically meager He was a man of habit not habits A pipe at night was his only form of dissipation It was not too far for him to walk home from the office of evenings and he invariably did so un less the weather was extremely un pleasant So methodical was he that he never had walked over any other bridge than the one In Wells street coming and going Past sixtyfive years of age Drooms hair still was black and snaky his teeth were as yellow and Jagged as they were In the seventies and his eyes were as blue and ugly as ever Ho had not aged with James Ban semer In truth he looked but little older than when we made his ac quaintance The outside world knew no more of Drooms private transac tions than It knew of Banserners Up in the horrid little apartment In Wells street the queer old man could do as he willed unobserved and unannoyed He could pursue his experiments with strange chemicals he could construct odd devices with his kit of tools and he could lot off an endless amount of Inventive energy that no one knew he possessedWhen left Graydon Bansemer on the sidewalk In front of the office building he swung off with his long strides toward the Wells street bridge His brain had laid aside everything that had occupied Its attention during overIsupper a small one and hurriedly eaten In or der that he might get to work on his new device Droom grinned and cackled to himself all alone up there In the lamplight for ho was perfecting nn Invention by which the honest citizen could successfully put to rout the holdup man that has made Chicago famous Elias Drooms inventive genius un failingly led him toward devices that could inflict pain and discomfiture His plan to get the better of the wretched hard working holdup man was unique If not entirely practical He was con structing thin models for two little bulbs made of rubber and lined with a material that would resist the effects of an acid no matter how powerful On one end of each bulb which was capable of holding at least an ounce of liquid there was a thin syringe at tachment also proof against acids These little bulbs were made so that they could be held in the palm of the hand By squeezing them

of terms with their daughter was a fre quent visitor there There was a rare bump of progres slvcncss in the character of Graydon Bcnscmcr He was good looking enough beyond doubt and there was a vast degree of personal magnetism about him It seemed but natural that be should readily establish himself as a friend and a favorite of the fair Miss Cable For some time James Ban aemer had watched his sons progress with the Cable family not once allow- Ing his personal Interest to manifest Itself It was but a question of time until Mrs Cables suspense and anxiety would bring her to him one way or an other Every word that fell from the lips of his son regarding the Cables held his attention and it was not long before he saw the family history as clearly as though It were an open book and he knew tar more than the open book revealed Frances Cable was not deluded by ills silence and aloofness But she was unable to devise means to circumvent him Constant fear of his power to trash lurked near her day and night Conscious of her weakness but eager to have done with the strife sometimes the longed for the enemy to advance At first she distrusted and despised the son but his very fairness battered down the barriers of prejudice and real admiration succeeded Her hus band liked him immensely and Jane was his ablest ally David Cable re garded him as one of the brightest young men on the stock exchange and predicted that some day he would bean Influential member of the great brokerage firm for which he now act ed as confidential clerk Mr Clegg tho senior member of the firm of Clegg Groll Davidson his employers per sonally had recommended young Ban semer to Cable and he was properly ImpressedGraydons devotion to Jane did not go unnoticed This very condition should have assured Mrs Cable that James Banpcmcr had kept her secret zealously There was nothing to indi cate that the young man knew the story of the foundling- It was not until some weeks after the chance meeting in Hooleys theater that Mrs Cable came into direct con tact with James Bansemers designs She had met him at two or three form al affairs but their conversations had been of the most conventional charac ter On the other hand her husband had lunched and dined at the club with the lawyer At first she dreaded the outcome of these meetings but as Cables attitude toward her remained unchanged she began to realize that Bansemer whatever his purpose was loyalThey met at last quite informally at Mrs Cleggs dinner ft small and con genial affair When the men came Into the drawing room after the cigars Mrs Cable with not a little trepida tion motioned to Mr Bansemer t draw up his chair beside her I have been looking forward with pleasure to this opportunity Mr Ban semer she said in a courteously acid ulated way It has been so long In coming Better late than never he returned with marked emphasis Fortunately for her the challenging significance of his words was quickly nullified by the smile with which she was almost in stantly favored Twenty years I be lieve it certainly came very near be- Ing never he went on abruptly changing from harsh to the sweetest of tones No one could believe that you youre simply wonderful and added pointedly But your daughter Is even more beautiful If such is possible than herher mother t Apparently the Innuendo passed un noticed In reality it required all lien courage to appear calm How very nice of you she said softly And looking him full in the face Her mother thanks you for the complimentIt brave little speech Such bravery would have softened a man of another mold changed his purpose Not so with Bansemer A sinister gleam came into his eyes and his at tack became more brutally direct But tho husbandhas he never mistrusted The blow told though herreply was given with rippling laughter and for the benefit of any chance listeners For shame Mr BansemerI she nrtod tightly After flattering me so pe delightfully youre surely not going to spoil it all- Despite his growing annoyance ad miration shone clearly from Banse mers eyes His memory carried him scentteInthinking that the charming woman before him exercising so cleverly all the arts of society as if born to the purple and tho light hearted frivolous little wife of tho Centrals engineer were one and the same person The metamorphosis seemed Incredible Unwittingly his manner lost some of Its aggressiveness and the woman perceiving the altered conditions quick to take advantage resolved to learn If possible his intentions Presently go ing right to tho point she asked Is that extraordinary looking crea ture you had in your office still with you Mr Bansemer Extraordinary Ho laughed loudly He Is certainly that and more Indeed the English language docs not supply us with an adjective that adequately describes the man The people nearest to them by this time had moved away to another part of the large drawing room Practically the couple vtarc by themselves She had been thinking for a moment rea coning with a womans logic that It was always well to know ones enemy When she next spoke it was almost In a whisperHow docs that horrible man knowHe Is not supposed to know anything and then with an enigmatical smile promptly admitted However Im afraid that ho does You have told him And yet you promised nobody should know How could My dear Mrs Cable ho was not told If he has found out I could not prevent his discovering the truth through his own efforts he interrupted In a tone more assuaging than con vincing to her and then hitching his chair closer and lowering his voice a note he continued The papers had to be taken out But you must not worry about him You can depend on mePromise me that you will make him I am so fearful of that awful she broke oft abruptly Her fears were proving too much for her and she was 1 In imminent danger of a complete breakdown AH the veneer with which oho had bravely commenced the Inter view had disappeared Bansemer endeavored to soothe her with promises but the poor woman saw only his teeth In the reassuring smile that he presented to her together with the warnings that they were likely to bo observed With the hard est kind of an effort she succeeded In pulling herself together sufficiently to bid good night to her hostess When Mrs Cable reached home that nIght it was with a full realization that she was Irrevocably committed Into the custody of these cold blooded menThey met again and again at the homes of mutual friends and she had tome to loathe the pressure of his hand when It clasped hers One night he held her hand long and firmly In his and while she shrank helplessly before fhim he even tenderly asked why she had not Invited him into her home It was what s e had expected and feared Her cup of bitterness was filling rap idlytoo rapidly His Invitation to dinner a fortnight later followed r Jane Cable was radiant as she en tered the drawing room shortly after the arrival of tho two Bansemers Its quite like a family party How splendid she said to Graydon with a quick glance in the direction of James Bansemer and David Cable who stood conversing together and withdrawing her soft white hand which she had put forth to meet his in friendly clasp Its too good to be true she went on in a happy spontaneous almost con ding manner The two fathers looked on In amused silence the one full of

TO- CHRISTIAN CHURCH Made by Judge Taft in Behalf of the Filipinos A Great Missionary Work That IIs Certain to Promote Christian Civ ilization The extension of a vitalizing Chris tianity among the Filipinos as advo cated by Judge Taft both before his speech of acceptance of the nomina tion to the presidency and in that document Itself has been widely com mented upon In the pulpits of the United States The voice of the cler gy has given earnest commendation to the attitude of Judge Taft who when governor general of tho islands exerted the utmost Influence for amelioration of the condition of the Inhabitants of the archipelago and that too at the cost of great self sacrifice on his own part in refusing the Beat on the supreme bench to which he was both called and commanded by President Roosevelt Never since he first assumed the bur den of the governorship of the Phili- pJines has the welfare of the Flllponos eased to be close to the heart of Judge Taft In his speech of acceptance again he reminded the Americans that it Is the duty of this country as a strong Christian and enlightened na tion to give spiritual as well as ma terial aid to the distant brown brethren Tafts Appeal to Church Rev Albert Hurlstone pastor of Roberts Park church Indianapolis l Ind in a recent sermon thus spoke of Judge Tafts appeal to the Christian I people of America Mr Taft used words of wisdom In referring to this question in his notlfiI cation speech His appeal Is not only to his party but It Is to the Christian church of America It seems to me that every man whoso heart beats loyally to Jesus Christ must rejoice In the statement so truthfully made Mr Taft said We have established a gov ernment with effective and honest ex ecutive departments In the Philippines and a clean and fearless administra tion of justice we have created and are maintaining a comprehensive school system which Is educating the youth of the Islands in English and in industrial brunches we have constructed I great government public works roads and harbors we have Induced the private construction of 800 miles of railroad we have policed the Islands so that their condition as to law and order is better now than it has ever been in their history Mr Taft is better fitted to speak jlwi this question than any other man In the government today by virtue of his close connection with the problem his experience and personal observa tion of the work being done hence what he says will be heeded by the Christian church with intense Interest Influence of Christian Civilization More than ten years before Dewey sailed Into Manila Bishop Thoburn our missionary bishop for fifty years In India predicted that ere long the missionary would find an open door in the Philippines but God alone knew 1 how the door was to be opened Now we hear Mr Taft saying We are engaged In the Philippines In a great missionary work that does our s nation honor and Is certain to promote In a most effective way the In fluence of Christian civilization It Is cowardly to lay down the burden until our purpose is achieved True nor t do we believe that the American people will allow this to be done The sacrifice has been made the song of tho redeemed people will ere long fill heaven and earth with gladness The selfish are ever lonely and joyless but they who bring the sacrifice to the i altar will find the joy of tho Lord arise within them According to His Folly declaredIby the Democratic platform and can f fdidate to be the overshadowing Issue now under discussion It Is no issue urelY the people shall rule

tho cause of Mr Bryan seems to justify our prediction some months ago that the campaign would end with the Den ver convention We wish that wo could bo disillusioned i we wish that the Dem ocrats of South Carolina and of the country would sharply rebuke us for saying that there was an absence of enthusiasm for Mr BryanCharleston News and Courier Dem Making or Keeping Promises The difference between Mr Tafts promise of tariff revision and Mr Bry ans pledges In the same direction is that Mr Taft If elected will be In posI sltlon to redeem his pledge while Mr +r Bryan if elected would be

Both answers are wrong It requires but twentythroe hours and flftyslx minutes for the earth to make one complete turn and It makes SGGi turns during the year The er ror springs from a wrong idea of

meridian that Is to say the time which elapses after the sun is seen exactly south In Its diurnal course through the heavens before it Is again seen In that position Now In consequence of the earths revolution In its orbit or path round the sun the sun has the appearance of moving very slowly in the heavens in a direction from east to west At noon tomorrow the sun will be a short distance to the

curing this the boys and men were by law kept In a continual state of train tag No deformed child was allowed to live Boys were taken from their homes and subjected to military regu lations at the age of seven They were compelled to wear the same single gar ment winter and summer At twenty they joined the ranks and from that age till they reached sixty were required to dine at the public tables where only a certain quantity was sup plied for each man The magistrates Interfered in absurdly small matters They regulated the degree of fatness to which it was lawful for any citizen to extend his body Those who dared to grow too fat or too soft for military pervlce and exer else were sometimes soundly flogged Aellan in his history relates that Nauclls son of Polytus was brought before the ephors magistrates and the whole assembly of Sparta and his un lawful fatness was publicly exposed and he was threatened with perpetual banishment if he did not bring his body within the regular Spartan com pass and give up the culpable mode of living which was declared to be more worthy of an Ionian than aI Spartan Clock and Watch Freaks- A watch Isnt exactly dirty when It requires cleaning says a watchmaker It may need cleaning when it hasnt bven been worn A common cause of this is that the oil In the works has dried up and be come sticky causing the watch to go slow or even to stop In this case it not only wants cleaning but also the addition of fresh oil The best oil for this purpose is obtained from the Jawbone of a porpoise or kindred fish Many watchmakers mix their own oil from various kinds Clocks also stop for no apparent reason During a thunderstorm fo Instance a clock may stop only resum ing work when minutes days or even weeks have passed- Thunderstorms again have been

Hosts of Idle superstitions about cooking areI now set aside and the next generation of young housekeepers will hear less and less of them for science shows up superstition in a true if ridiculous light There is however a difference of opinion concerning methods of teaching It Is not claimed that the school kitchen can be the duplicate ofI the home kitchen but It Is a place where principles may be taught accurately and this is Important Women In the past have depended too much on recipes and a firm belief In luck They had not learned that cooking Is an application of chemical laws and that a knowledge of cause and results makes plain what before was unaccountable Some teachers of cookery follow the group method in which about eight pupils jointly pre pare the subjects of the lesson The pan of a dozen rolls for Instance when ready to eat represents their combined labor One girl sifted and measured the flour another measured baking powder a third one rubbed in the shortening and so on No single girl went through the whole process By the individual method each girl makes one single roll following the process from beginning to end This way necowtltntes very small measurements and

and many other courtesies they extended to us during Our County Fair In return this week for all the kindness shown us we are devoting the columns of the paper to the grand and glorious event the association f made at Hardinsburg for the people last week There are many good things we should like to say that on account of the lack of space and time must be left unsaid However we are giving the cream of the Wows of Our County Fair and trust that the readers may enjoy the afterthoughts we have collected together And heres wishing that wo may all meet at the next one t Those Louisville folks who honored Our County Fair with 4 their presence had their eyes opened more than once as to Brecken ridge countys standing as a great county a great people and a great factor in the commercial uplift that is going forward in this great Commonwealth Mr Ashlock the accommodating secretary of the fair said You are certainly progressing along fair lines and for a twoyearold yours is the best I ever saw Another thing said Mr Ashlock Beard Bros show of stock cant be beat in the State These pleasant sayings all delight our vanity and spur us on to better things No man on the grounds had a better time than the writer of this paragraph For over thirty years we have been going in and out at that good old town and never before have we hada more cordial hearttoheart greeting from old and young rich and poor than on this occasion God bless old Breckenridge and all her people Cloverporters never had as good a time in Hardinsburg All came home singing her praises Now get ready for the State Fair It will be the fair of all fairs Governors Proclamation At the Good Roads Convention held at Eminence in July a temporary State organization was effected for Kentucky and the meeting adopted a resolution lookirg to a permanent State organization of a good Roads Assocaition at a meeting of theSUte Fair in Louisville on Thursday September 17th 1008 and the meeting requested the Governor of Kentudky to invite all the people ot the State to attend or send represent atives to that meeting so that it might be large enough and rtpresenative en ough to inetrst the whole State in the movement for Rood roads The resolution has the heartiest sympathy of the Governor and for the sake of Kentucky and the comfort happiness and convenience of our people I invite all the people who take an interst in good roads to attend the meeting to be bled at the State Fair in Louisville on September 17th 1LOGS to effect a per manent organization of a Good Roads i Association for Kentucky- It is earnestly hoped that the fiscal courts which have charge of road con struction in the several counties should attend in bodies with their Road Comm issioners and Supervisors as far as possible and that the couuty Judge of each county and the Mayor of each city will appoint at least five delegates to this Convention and that each Commercial Club or board of Trade shculd also send at least five delegates to this Convention and the State Development Association and all representatives the press and every oue interested in the building and keepingup good safe public highways ate earnestly invited to attend A strong permanent organization of the ablest and most earnest citizens in this whole State should be made at this meeting and that Association would be able to make all the people learn and understand what a blessing beufiet pro fit and help good roads will be to Ken t tucky The Association will be able to interest those who sre now indifferent and to stimulate and encourage county and local organization for the good roads s movementThe General Assembly passed an act to submit to popular vote nn amend auIthorfze1 of good roads The most prosperous States in the Union now all have Con stitutions aud Statutes which help build good roads Our Constitution was notII framed to help build good roads is well known that in many localities especially those where the traveling is worst aud the people poorest they cannot t build suitable roads without State help t and our Constitution ought to be amended in the interst of this move ment It will not be difficult to avoid the mistakes which were made in the old turnpikeroad movement and which I gave rise to a great deal of feeling I against State help for good roads The proposed amendment will be submitted to the voters at the November election of 1909 Its adoption will depend large ly upon the result of the proposed State Good Roads Association which should be able to arouse public interst and mold public sentiment in favor of its adoft ionThere is nothing which hurts the people more or costs the people more or keeps them back more than bad roads they make it hard to leave home hard to get back hard to haul hard to visit hard to get to Heaven sometimes There is nothing th t a man can think of that will do more to helpthe people than goodroads which makes it easy to travel easy to bring goods home easy to haul your produce aud manufactures to market easy to go to school and church aud easy to avoid many bitter thougnts that bad roads cause A good road dOU- bles the valne of land doubles the profit of the farm doubles the comfort of the family doubles the beauty of the county and town doubles the chance to make a living doubles the attendan e at church and school doubles the will ingness of the children to stay at home instead of flocking to the cities doubles and sometimes guadruples the load you can haul cuts into the time it takes to go any where or get back again cuts In two the cost of hauling cuts in to the wear and tear on wagons and harness and stock does away with all the worry of bad roads and will carry life educat ion and blessings to the remotest counties of the State Everybody is invited to the Good Roads Meeting rain or shine There will be a great deal that is interesting and instructive in regard to goodroads at this meeting on the best methods of locating surveying building and keeping up turnpike and gravel roads Tiis movement has my most earnest endorsement and I trust that it will prove to be a great blessing to Kentucky and all of our people I am

cure the kidneys- A Cloverport resident tells you how A Fallon railroad St Cloverport Ky says I can say that Doans Kidney Pills are all that is claimed for them My kidneys and bladder were in a dis ordered condition for twelve years and it required but four days use of Doani Kidney Pills procure J at Fishers drug store to give them relief My back ached severely and when I stooped or lifted anything sharp twings darted througn my loins causing me to suffer intensely When I first arose in the morning I would be lame and sore and during the day the slightest work would tire me I was also languid and at times felt very nervous Headaches were added to my suffering and dizzy spells were of frequent occurrence The too frequent passages of the kidney se cretions caused me great annoyance particularly at night when I would be forced to rise from three to six times I used but one box of Doans Kidney Pills and received almost entire relief I intend to continue with them and have no doubt that I will foon be entirely cured For sale by all dealers Price 50 touts FosterMilburn Co Buffalo New York sole agents for the United StatesRemember the name DoanB anc take no other- Summary of

Future In Blood As a prophet William Jennings Bry an has never been a success The ca- lamitIes which he has foretold would have brought unlimited disaster to the country If they had ever been realized But they never came to pass The har rowing pictures which he painted were merely figments of his Imagination based on absolutely no foundation whateverIt to have Americans remem ber that prophecies uttered by the ora tor of the Platte must be discounted fully 100 per cent for all signs Indi cate that he feels the fates once more nnd Is about to begin prophesying again A male Cassandra Mr Bryan might by this time have learned that the forecast of evil will never be believed by those who have found that In the past his vaticinations have been but empty air- Driving Country to Ruin For Instance when Mr Bryan was a member of the house of representatives in 1802 be was absolutely certain that protection was driving the coun try headlong to rack and ruin and In his speech delivered March 10 of that year he drew the following agonizing picturesProtection has been our cannibal tree and as one after another of our tanners has been driven by the force of circumstances upon that tree and has been crushed within Its folds his companions have stood around and shouted Great Is protection I Thus in every state so far as these statis tics have been collected the proportion of home owning farmers Is decreasing and that of tenant farmers increasing This means but one thing It means a land of landlords and tenants and backed by the history of every nation that has gone down I say to you that no people can continue a free people under a fice government when the great majority of its citizens are ten ants of a Hinall minority Your system protective tariff has driven the farm owner from his land and sub stituted the farm tenant How far this picture portrays the America of today or the America of any year singe he made that speech any American cum answer Even in Mr Bryans own state he can find an answor light at his doors for the farm lands of Nebraska have doubled In valuo Murderous Gold StandardI But during the four years succeeding that speech Mr Bryans agitation grew no lows nor did the demon which ho had raised in his own imagination hide with diminished head for In 1800 he again saw destitution threatening the country lIe had a remedy for it a ITCHING

the country makes a calm reply confuting the Impassioned orator Campaigning again In 1000 Mr Bryan decided that Imperialism was an other danger to the country If It wer continued the Fourth of July would bu forgotten by all Americans and the spirit of 70 would become a thing of the past Speaking at Lincoln Mr Bryan said Sees Death of Patriotism The fight this year will be to carryout the sentiment of that song we have so often repeated My Country fls of Thee If we lose our children and our childrens children will not succeed to the spirit of that song and celebrations of the Fourth of July will puss away for the spirit of the empire will be upou usIs there any spot In these United States where thO spirit of 1770 Is dead and forgotten and the Fourth of July u meaningless date on the calendar One of the most ridiculous of these prophecies was contained In a speech Mr Bryan made In support of Judge Parker during the campaign of 1004 when he attacked President Roosevelt bitterly This prophecy had It that military despotism was sure to follow the decrease In the size of the standing army In this speech Mr Bryan also empllaslzed the fact that he was then and always would be a firm believer In the principle of free silver lIe sum med up his position on this question In the following sentence- I believe today In the principles set forth at Chicago and Kansas City 10 to 1 and shall continue to fight for those principles GOOD ROADS IN ENGLAND W H Moore Says the United States Should Follow British Example- W H Moore president of the Na tional Good Roads association writing

Pittsburp Observer I AUTO PROOf ROADWAY Coal Tar and Pitch Used to Finish It ALL DIRT MUST BE REMOVED I Before Laying Surfacing Materials Roads Ought to Be Perfectly Dry Says Connecticut Highway Commis sioner Resist Autos Bad Effects The racking of brains to find a road surfacing which will withstand the wear and tear of automobile traffic that has been going on among road makers in the United States and Eu rope of late is resulting In a return to coal tar which thirty years ago was thought to be worthless for any pur pose and today furnishes mankind so many different products and byprod ucts some of them far removed from tho building of stone roads Highway Commissioner Macdonald of Connecti cut ever among the leaders in these matters has worked out a specifica tion which has already been adopted by state highway commissioners who have heard of It and have obtained a copy says a Hartford Conn dispatch It calls for a combination of coal tar and pitch and fully as much of the success with which the road laid by means of It resists the action of auto tires Is due to the manner In which it Is put down as to the medium which binds the road surface Into a solid I perfectly cohesive waterproof whole Something over a year ago Commis stoner Macdonald chose a very hot day and laid his specification on most of the roads in Bushnell park about the Connecticut state capitol in Hartford and the present condition of these roads which Is as good as the day the coal tar combination was put down tes tifies to the excellence of the specification Not only that but these roads are unusually good ones on which to try out the coal tar for the reason that they are used by autos far more than by any other vehicles It happens that before he became state highway commissioner a dozen years ago Mr Macdonald had been for years at the head of a New Haven firm which laid and still lays tar and asphalt pavements and he was pecul iarly fitted to grapple with the destructiveness of auto tires on macadam roads when it became a question of seeing the fine system of roads in Con necticut which he is building dlslnte LAYING COAL TAU AND PITCH ON A ROAD grate before his eyes unless he could find a protection for them There were two things to be done find a road sur facing material which Is finished when laid and solid so that it makes no dust and needs no dust to maintain its In tegrity or find a method of laying the dust Some roadmakcrs have not given over trying to find the latter yet but after various and varied experiments Commissioner Macdonald finds that a mere dust layer which means oil is of little value It must be frequently renewed and cannot be repaired Commissioner Mncdonalds specifica tion lays great stress on the for having all parts of the necessityI fectly dry when the coal tar surfacing is laid After the shoulders and gutters have been formed and shaped tho contractor must clean off all dirt or accumulations with split rattan brooms or a horse sweeper until the No 2 stone Is entirely bare clean and free from all material except such as is found in tho No2 course so that there is no interruption between the tar and the No2 course of stone This No 2 course is to bo evened up to grade also Then comes the coal tar application About 15 per cent of pitch is to be melted Into the tar and thoroughly mixed with it the whole to be heated to a temperature of 225 degrees At this temperature tho mixture is flood ed on to the road and broomed in with split rattan brooms When this first application has become entirely ab sorbed a second application of exactly tho same thing is to be applied In just the same way the two making a per fectly solid surface on top In combina tlon with tho No 2 course of stone which is about one inch longest diame ter In size While the second application Is still hot and sticky the top dressing of trap rock splinters from onehalf to three quarters of an inch longest diameter Is put on to a uniform depth of not less than an Inch Two Inches will be oven better At once a steam road roller of not less than ten tons weight is to be run over tho surface of this and to bo kept running over it untij the top dressing Is thin itfg 1y ntmioiuf in the tar and pitch oniposltlon Theo the road must cool thoroughly before any use whatever There are several Important conJl tlons which must be observed too

Infinitely More Powerful Than Congress Congressman lames Francis Burke of Plttsburg In nn address on The Powers of the President says The American people cart make no greater mistake than to elect Mr Bryan on the assumption that he can do no harm in the face of an adverse ecu ate As between the executive and legislative departments of the govern ment the former has Infinitely greater power to rule and ruin than the latter Mr Taft and Mr Bryan are wholly different types of men Each pos sesses a strong individual character which would certainly assert itself in the White House What either of these men would do during a four years term in the White House is causing as much anxiety among thoughtful Americans as the mere matter of the election alone As a disturber of moneys the pres ident Is without a rival in tho world Through the agencies under his con trol he will this year disburse a billion dollars showing the great things wo are doing in adding to the unparalleled list of the worlds achievements In view of the fact that during the fifteen years of Bryan leadership the states controlled by his party have decreased from 23 to 12 the number of senators from 48 to 31 the number of representatives In congress from 220 to 1G4 and In that time the Democratic party was in control of the ground whereas It Is now as a consequence of his teachings a hopelessly heterogeneous mass of Popullstlc elements the American people can see little prospects of a constructive policy if Mr Bryan should succeed Things Bryan Would Forget The most Important because the most curiously novel feature of Mr Bryans address Is his apotheosis of the party platform A new doctrine of Infallibility Is embodied In these sen tences at the very beginning of Mr Bryans speech A platform is binding as to what it omits as well as to what It contains A platform announces a partys posi tion on the questions which are at Is sue and an otilclal is not at liberty to use the authority vested in him to urge personal views which have not been submitted to the voters for their ap provalIt natural that Mr Bryan should disavow certain omitted Issues such as free silver government ownership of railroads the Initiative and referen dum attacks upon the courts and oth er theories which at times he sanction ed ovcrhastily In the past But he is unfortunate in his manner of express ing that disavowal- A party platform Is not political holy writ The American people choose for president a man not a clerk to carry out the orders of a con ventlon committee A platform Is not a prophetic code of conduct but a summary of basic principles to be al tered amended or enlarged according to the countrys needs Philadelphia North American I IDIDNT NEED IT Why a Scotch Farmer Refused a Portion of Dessert Could
