Committee of Jefferson Has Interview SpringsM HOT SPRINGS Nov 24Judge Taft had a long talk this evening with At torney David W Fairleigh of Louis villeFairleigh came here by appointment and while he avowed that patronage matters were not considered he admit ted the conversation was of a political natureThe only kind of a position which possibly would appeal to him is a Feder al Judgeship and such an office is not available at this time The two men reviewed conditions in Kentucky and Mr Taft expressed re gret that the State did not go Republi can on election day Mr Fairleigh gave it as his opinion that the primary causes of the loss of the State were the night riders raids and the activity of the liquor interests in behalf of certain candidates on the Democratic ticket Reports emanating from Kentucky sources since election day have created the impression that the State Commit tee was not as zealous in behalf of the national ticket as it might have been but the Louisville attorney told Mr Taft that it had done the best it knew how The future of the Republican party in Kentucky Tennessee and other Southern States where Mr Taft made material gains particularly among the white voters was the subject of some discussion While Mr Taft has nqt yet begun to think of 1912 he is not over looking any opportunity to store up in formation that may be of Value in the next presidential campaign The fact that he deemed it worth while to spend an hour or two with a man of Mr Fairleighs type would seem to indicate that in seeking counsel upon political matters he does not intend to restrict himself intirely to men identi fied with the national campaignLouis yule Herald The GLENDEANEM- isses Mildred and Molly Moorman spept Thanksgiving in Hardinsburg D C Moorman was in Louisville

Way to Sprinkle a Macadam Roadway Three Wise Drainage RulesForming a Subgradc Grave and Telford Road Construction Wo start every morning at exactly half past 7 oclock said State High way Commissioner Jniuos II Macdon ald of Connecticut ou n recent evening when the writer was arranging for a days trip in the official automobile ov r the highways which have made that state famous for its good roads It was then 0 oclock or later and the commissioner had just returned home so we anticipated a strenuous tomor row Promptly at the hour appointed all were ready for the start The Improved roads over which we traveled have moderate grades and smooth surfaces Though some oi them were built a dozen years ago and have never been treated with oil or tar or any special preparation they were In perfect condition except for some few spots where the autos are doing their destructive work and the need of a little trap rock dust to pro tect the second course of stone Is ape parentOne of the first points noticed on this trip was that the state roads out side of the villages were smoother than those connecting with them that are under the care of the municipalities lays Charles S Long in the Good Roads Magazine Within one town the commissioner called attention to a sprinkling wagon that was forcing the water down on the macadam and flush- Ing the tine dust to the gutters Instead of spraying It gently and leaving It to form a binder to the road That kind nf sprinkling tends to ruin a macadam rovdway by removing the surfacing material Just ne the motor car and tIle wind remove It Speaking of A stretch of road that extended like a ribbon of asphalt until ithe perspective brought it to a point at farthest limit of vision the com missioneri explained that it was con 8t11II ted of gravel and had been stir fa ed with trap rock dust Many of the dirt and gravel roads of the state are being treated In this way They are graded and rolled and thou after a year or BO are given a surfacing of trrp rock splinters and dust which abound In the state The state fur niihos annually a certain amount of broken stone or screenings to each town and along the sides of the roads are to be seen piles of this material surmounted by signboards bearing the words State Property When a road of whatever kind of construction Is to be built with state aid in Connecticut the plans are drawn In the commissioners office in the cap Itol building at Hartford An engineer Is thou sent to establish the grades along the proposed road Theee grades are verified from time to time by the engineer and stakes which may have been displaced In the prosecution of the work by the contractor are reset so that the finished road shall conform exactly to the original specifications Drainage is attended to first on time principle of the commissioners famous three lwOIIlz Keep the water off the road keep It out of the road keep It from undor the road This hawing been attended to the neces sary bridges and culverts are arranged for These are being constructed of cow relyl HK fast as possible Then comes time forming of the subS grade The contractor Is required in building any kind of road to remove nil loam roots and vegetable matter fro the propomd travel way of the toad and also everything of a spongy nature If there N not material enough to brln the subgrade to the height rMiilmll the contractor must supply I the deficiency If there IIs an overplus from cuts It must be dlapoied of nee ordlns to directions Time subgrade Is rolled thoroughly with a ton ton strain roller and brought to the exact contour of the finished road surface Importance Is laid upon the manner of UuildiiiK the shoulder In fact Impor tance to laid upon every step In the progress of construction for the com missionerI says that there are no little till flgK In roadmR king and the contractor Is required to extend the shoul ilfr several inches on to the travel way and thoroughly roll or rum the materialI down to the established grade and then cut it back to the line This renders it firm and unyielding to the mutating In the construction of a gravel road It Is specified that the first course shall consist of good clean gravel not less than 80 per cent of gravel the balance material that will bind No loam will be allowed The gravel shall range from pea stone to three inches at Its longest di ameter Care must be taken to have the gravel as near uniform In quality is possibly avoiding sand the small sizes to predominate The gravel shall be spread on uniformly and roll ed down after which a sprinkler shall be used and this course wet down and then rolled again and continue rolling i until It Is firm and thoroughly com patted This course shall be three Inches in depth when complete after rolling After the first course the second course shall be put on and the same method shall be pursued in its treat ment in every particular as described for tho first course except that the vjjzp of the gravel shall not be larger ifiaa will go through a two inch r tt screen This course shall be three inches In depth after rolling After tho contractor has taken out nil wheel and foot marks on the second course and has finished rolling ho shall then put on the last or finishing course which shall consist of 00 percent of stone and 40 per cent of bind ing material No stone shall exceed one inch longest diameter This course must be spread with shovels either from tho wagon or from the gravel dumped on the shoulders The con tractor must not dump time loads of gravel ou tho road proper This course after being spread uniformly shall be wet down and rolled and the wottIng and rolling shall be continued until the road Is solid and firm and will not show the mark of hoof or wheel whIle driving over It There are many miles of gravel roads within tho state of Connecticut which are as smoothto use a term that is becoming familiar as applied to Improved roadsas a billiard table and when after a year or so of traffic they are given tho surfacing of trap rock splinters It Is difficult to note the difference in appearance from mac adam This construction affords a hard smooth and durable surface On this official tour of inspcctlor there was included a stretch of telford construction Hero the travel path had been excavated to a depth of afoot below grade line and then the large stone for the first or bed course was laid In doing this class of work the commissioner requires that the bed stone shall be of the following di mensions Six to ten inches in width eight to eighteen inches in length and eight Inches deep placed by hand broadest surface of depth of stone placed down and stones laid In courses across the road all joints broken and all interstices chinked in and wedged with broken stone All sharp points of stone must be broken oft with the hammer to bring the surface of the both stone true to grade The bed stone should bo laid up full and strong so as to allow for all settling in roll- Ing In no case will the contractor be allowed to use stone that Is not up to all these requirements After bed stone has been laid chinked and broken oft to grade the roller shall bo run over the bed stone until it Is firmly I bedded and will not kick or rock under the roller No nests of small stone will bo allowed nor will tho con tractor be allowed to use rotten stone The second course shall be four Inches over all after rolling and must be broken trap rock unless otherwise specified Time stone used for this course shall be from threefouths of an inch to two inches longest diame ter mixed in tho screens not in time bins the smaller sizes to predominate The size of stone for this course must be strictly followed to the letter no tailings will be allowed and any de parture from the size specified will be at the contractors risk The stone must be dumped on the sides of the road proper or on the bed stone foun dation and be scattered with shovels to the required depth sufficient to roll down to four Inches The rolling shall be continued until thp stones are thor oughly united firm and solid under the roller Tho top course shall be one inch thick when finished Trap rock screen ings including dust no screenings larger than onehalf Inch stone will be allowed shall be used as a finish- Ing course The screenings after roll Ing has been dune on the last course of broken stone shall be carted on the sides of Ithe road proper and dumped at suitable Intervals after which all wheel tracks and foot marks of horses shall be carefully filled and then rolled down firmly Then screenings shall be scattered dry over the surface so as to fill all interstices and the roller shall be run over the surface so as to shake in the dust Immediately after a sprinkling cart shall be used and the scrcculuffs washed in after which more xcrcenlnge must bo added and sprinkled and rolled again and the screenings rolling and sprinkling must be continued until all the coarse stones lucre boon covered and the interstices completely filled and tho road is smooth and will shed water and measure In depth one inch of screen- Ings for wearing surface The contractor Is not to be allowed to put on the screenings all at one time but must spread them on as described above amid he Is not allowed to devi ate front the above treatment in any way Time contractor must trot wet the screenings bolero they have been scattered on the broken stone and furthermore they must be perfectly dry before they are put on the road It requires constant vigilance dur ing the term of construction to insure value received in road building And one who has traveled for a day at a time with several state highway commissioners appreciates that the office Is cot a sinecure Holyokes Test of Tar Macadam A years experience In the use of gas tar produced at the municipal plant in tlolyoke MSS has Increased the con fidence of the members of the board tf public works In the value of that material In the construction of macad am roads Tho tar from the city gas plant costs only 2 cents n gallon as comparod with 0 cents or more for the ordinary commercial article Although not carefully refined and brought to a uniform standard the material has given good results at a remarkably low cost As laid In IIolyoko a new macadam road can be laid with two pourings of tar on the surface coats for 80 cents a square yard This year the tar macadam will be used on more heavily traveled streets than those laid last year To get the best results ex perience has taught that the broken stone screenings should be free from all dust and as clean as If washed If tho fino stone on which the tar Is poured is dusty the tar does not stick J REQUESTED Recipe Easily Prepared at Small Cost And Many

said she was the daughter of a rich magnate come to do service in theI cause of humanity others were sure she was a great and beautiful actress who was sacrificing everything to con spicuous advertising All however were agreed In the praise of her noble beautyThe little detachment on guard turn ed up Its collective nose and proudly pointed to Teresa Velasquez Look at that said Bob

pass arrived with others to take charge of the Red Cross hospl tal on the day following the battle she found the man she had been longing to see for many weary heartsick months She found him dying To the surprise of the enthralled command she toll in a dead swoon when she looked upon the pallid face of Gray dop Bansemer She had gone eagerly from one pallet to another coming upon his near the last One glance was enough His face had been in her mind for months just as she was seeing it now She had lived in horror of finding him cold in death It was Teresa Velasquez who first j understood She knew that BansemersII I lIeIIIf she had learned to care for the big American herself during the hard days when he hind been so tender she also had learned that her worship was hopeless She had felt his yearning love for another Now she was looking t upon that other While the attend- antsI were bonding over their uncon I girlIbeen guardian man was going out before her miserable exhausted eyes Jane Cable stirred with returning life Teresa was quick to see that words not medicine would act as tho restorative She went swiftly to the I American girls side and clasping her hands cried sharply Into iron half con- sciousi cars j He Is not dead He is alive He needs you 1 II The effect was magical Life leaped i into Janes eyes vigor Into liar Lody I lOysI Her sudden breakdown had puzzled her companions It Is true that she was new In the service she hind seen but little of death and suffering but with all tht she was known to possess remarkable strength of purposo and fortitude That she should col lapse almost at the outset of her op portunities was time source of wonder and no little contempt among her tel low workers The words of the strange girl In mens clothing opened the way tq smart surmises It was not long be fore every one In the command knew that the beautiful lied Cross nurse was not wearing the garb of the vocation for the sake of humanity alone in fact it was soon understood that she did not care a straw for the rest of mankind so long as Graydon Bauseraer needed her ministrations Ignoring the principles of the cause she served she Implored the doctors to confine their efforts to ono man among all of them who suffered she pleaded and stormed In turn finally offering famulous bribes In support of her de wands For the time being she was half crazed with fear and dread woefully I unworthy of her station partially divorced from reasonI Tho wore desperately wounded were left In the village with an adequate guard the rest of the command de parting with Major March A tom porary houfjltl WitS established in tho convent There wero two doctors and four or fire nurses with a dozen sol dlors under command of Lieutenant Bray It was while the apparently dead Bnnsemer was being moved to the Improvised hospital that Jane presented herself distraught with fear to the young southerner who had so plainly shown his love for her She pleaded with him to start at dnco for I Manila with the wouaded supporting her extraordinary request with the NotiUoQ that they could not rcIw Ip I proper cart from The Wotytllilv finr goons Bray was surprised and dls tressed he could not misunderstand her motive lIe hind gone on caring for her with out suspecting that there was or had been another man She had not confided In him during those heir plens ant mouths since they left San Trnn cIsco behind thorn To learn the true situation so suddenly and unexpectedly stunned his sensibilities IIt found difficulty In grasping the importance of the change an hour or two had made He had fought valiantly oven exult antly in tho pass that morning her face ever before him her words of praise the best spoils of the victory should they win lIe had come down to the village with Joy and confidence In his heart only to find that boo was not and could never lhe anything to her while the life or memoiy of this fallen comrade stood as a harrier Brays hor following the diythat she hnd deliberately sought out and found this stricken private teas the most bitter in his life Ills pride suffered a ihock that appalled him Ills unconscious egotism born of he reditary conquests revolted against the thought that his progress toward her heart was to be turned aside by the Intervention of n common soldier In the ranks Gentleman though he was be could not subdue the feeling of exultation that came over him when she approached with her plea lie knew that It was a base sense of power that mrde him feel that he could punish his prides offender by either denying or grunting lien appeal The attitude of self sacrifice appealed to Iris wounded vanity He was tempt ed to profit by an exhibition of his own pale and generosity- Ho went with her Into the convent and to the pallet on which was stretch ed the long still figure of Graydon Bausemer A surgeon was standing near by studying the gray face with thoughtful eyes Brays first glance nt the suffering face sent a thrill of en couragement through Iris veins The man was beyond all human help The grip of death was already upon hL heart Then the true manhood that had been his through all generations re volted against the thought that wns In his mind The matt should not die If it was in his power to prevent No matter what the cost to hint he would give his aid to her and hers He tried to put aslrto the feeling thnt death was certain and very soon at that lie sought honestly to justify himself In the hope that BauBomcrs life could be saved after rill Leave me alone with the doctor Miss Cable he said

market is booming in this county Farmers are delivering their crops and taking home pockets full of good American coin They are the host pleased set of men in the world and are wearing smiles that dont come off At Garfield last Saturday and Monday the town was crowded with wagons and farmers who were taking advantage of the soft mild weather to deliver their crops The tobacco in this section has all been sold at prices ranging from 12 to 15 per 100 round At Ekron last Monday was another busy place for a happy and joyous set of farmers They too were delivering their tobacco to lo cal dealers for which they were getting fancy prices ExRepresen tative W A Stith will finish this week delivering his crop of 6000 pounds of Burley which he had sold at 1250 round P P Archer 4000 pounds at 14 round and Jack Harrington Bro 30000 pouds at 13 round These sales were made early The same crops now would bring S15 Tho local buyers are keen for the weed r and are riding night and diy gathering in what few crops remain un sold Last year only a few hogshead were shipped from this section owing to the low prices which prevailed This year thorn will be four or five hundred hogsheads shipped and from the way the growers are scrambling for land to till next year the crop will be doubled Some growers are offering as high as 15 an acre rent for good tobacco land At Custer good times and busrY throng that is working striving and pulling for dear life to unload the big bright long leaf burley to the local dealers The growers in this section sold most of their crops while standing in the fieldnot yet matured at prices ranging from 10 to 14 round To give an idea of how money is flowing into that good neighborhood the First State Branch Bank paid within two days last weok over 10000 for the weed This is only a starter of the flow of good sound American dollars into that section r Very little if any of the weed has been delivered in this town The pool formed at Hardinsburg has not yet made a deal and this is holding back both sellers and buyers It is more than probable that the pool will make a sale soon as they have several bids whichonly await the approval of the farmers Then the good times willstrike this town WJIIII JI 4 Public Sale I IbestI onii Wednesday December 16th 1908 on the H L Kurtz deceased farm the follow ing Fifteen head of Mare Mules 9 Yearling

game recently played between Yule and Prince ton was oudwl n big flaxen haired boy drew a heavy blanket around his bandaged head and shoulders hid himself In n corner of a bus rested his elbows on his knees and sunk his chin and Jatvs Into his hands Outside thousands wore cheering for Old Ell Along the streets of Princeton the old vehicle rolled with Its twenty silent passengers At the hotel all nJIgnied ami a crowd rushed around to slngBoola and cheer Yale Heedless of the victorious yells the boy with the white hair and the big blnukut rushed up the steps flung open the door to lute room toll on the beet sud burst into a hysterical fit of weeping On a chair near the bed sat a more elderly man nu exact replica of the young man Without a word le soothingly took the athletes feet threw them across his knees and silent Jly loubined the laces of his shoes When the shoes and stooklngs had been removed the older man who also curried an athletic breadth oC shoulder reached his hand beneath the shoulders of the weeping athlete and pulled him to his feet Brace up old fellow he said Its all user now Tell me what came Into youFor a mlnuto the boy stammered He couldnt say a word Finally he threw his arms around the neck of his brother and gulped Well we won anyway And with another hysterical spell of weeping Ted Coy acting captain of the Yale team toll across the bed and burled his face In his hands The brother who had carried the Yale team to victory eight years ago sat beside him holding his hand and this Is the way the rest of the team found the heroes of 1908 and 1000 when they came to see If everybody had been dressed The strain had told and this was the relaxation which followed the greatest game of 1008 Here was a man six feet In height and weighing 190 pounds the hero of the day cry Ing like a child The fortunes of the game had rested upon his shoulders With no one to guide him he had seen the weakening of his team With a score of 0 to 0 against them he had deliberately ordered the right half back to take his position at right end and he had gone Into the back field teternilnod to carry the ball to vie tory If he had failed the censuring eyes of 3000 students would have been upon him lIe felt that they would have accused him of putting himself in the limelight while the men who had fought valiantly for an hour by his side wero thrust in the back ground lIe did it all of his own Initiative The coaches had absolutely nothing to Say During the fifteen minutes which elapsed between the halves the Yale cohorts had remained In their dressing room silent The room was filled with silence and gloom 4Do you think you can win asked Walter Camp the veteran coach The other coaches were speechless We will win said Captain Coy and that was all that passed No one had so much as a suggestion to make When the first fifteen minutes of the second half had elapsed and no score had been made Sherwin Coy known to Yale as Shirt Coy sat on the side lines painfully quiet Edwin Coy the youngor athlete known to the students as Ted Coy then made the change which swept Princeton off the field On the first down he tore through the Princoton line for seven yards The Tigers were ripped apart as If they had been made of tissue paper Again he took the ball and again the ripping and tearing of the Tiger line was apparent The brother on the side lines began pounding the coaches on the backs lie had come all the way from Minneapolis to see his brother save the day for Yale On and on went Acting Captain Coy and finally the score was tied

ON EACH SIDE May De Made Three Cornered Match iif Entry of Australia Can Da Procured I Caliber of Rifics Limited to 23I Handsomo Trophy Provided An international rifle match of un usual Interest will be shot this wintert under the auspices of the Society of Miniature Rille Clubs of Great Britain and the National Illfle Association of America Each country will be rep resented by fifty men wM will shoot ten shots each at tweutflve yard with miniature rifles Tha Americans will doubtless use tIe 22 caliber as under the terms of the challenge tho caliber of the rifles is limited to 23 which Is comparatively unknown 1In the United States The ten shots are to be fired on what I Is known as a double decimal target which Is really two targets together each with an inch sighting bull and a inner half inch bull counting ten Te I concentric circles onequarter of an inch apart divide the countfrom one to ten Five shots are to be Cred on each target the ten shots constituting thot string allowed each competitor One hundred targets will be sent to the National Rifle association by the Society of Miniature Rifle Clubs bearing the signature of the latter The Indorse ment of the American association will be added and fifty of the targets re turned to Great Britain After tho shooting the two sets of trgets will be collected and exchanged to verify the scores which will be snnt by cable It is possible that this unique matchI will be a three cornered affair an l that Australia will be drawn Into i Tho British society has provided a handsome trophy to be held for onei year by the winning country and eachn participant will receive a commem orative medal Considerable preparation will be necessary for the match which will likely not take place until midwinter The National Rifle asso- cIation will shortly begin selecting the fifty shots to represent the United States and as it is desired to secure time best it is probable that all thoI rifle clubs affiliated with the associa tion will be Invited to compete for the honor of supplying members of the team After the tryouts a team will be selected and when the match Is shot the men chosen wlh toot their strings on the range b longing to their own clubs If possible the dates will be arranged so that the shooting svlll be done In both countries or all three if Australia comes In on the same date though necessarily there will be some difference In actual time The challenge provides that any rifle snot exceeding 23 caliber may bused with any sights not employing glass any ammuniton and that any position may be assumed The Americans will probably request that the latter be changed and that the provi sion be restricted to offhand It 1 is believed tine challengers will agree to thisWhile 22 caliber rifle practice both In and out of doors Is growing In favor in the United States with grea rapidity the sport has not yet the popularity or the support it receives In England Some of the greates- men and women of the latter country give it their hearty encouragement and patronage For example the Society j of Miniature Rifle Clubs Is under the patronage of II U H the DulJe n 7onnaught while the two trustees are tho I Duke
