prove Electric Railway Articles of incorporation were filed Danville Monday organizing the Danville Electric Power and Railway The capital stock is 1000 with privilege to increase to 100000 The company was organized for the pur pose of building and operating elec lines through and in Danville Junction City and Shelby City It is calculated that with all connections sidings and appliances about eight miles of line will be built and operated and between these three towns Passenger connections will be with all trains leaving Junction City but the principal object of the promoters is to secure better facilities for handling freight A Capital Idea As the Public Square is worn down plain dirt as a matter of course it will have to be repaired in some way suggestion has been made that the Council nvestigate the street work recently done in Paris Ky as it is giving greater satisfaction than any plan recently invented plan is cover the surface with a thin lay of screenings small stone broken the crushers then sprinkle with a cheap oil another layer of screenings and then more oil This down as hard as iron and the oil completely does away with the dust which is such a nuisance and causes the merchants so much trouble This plan is said to be very cheap and THE RECORD suggests that the either write or send a man to Paris to investigate the idea The sprink ling of an cart load of rock on the Square do no good now as is completely worn out all over and we understand the Paris idea will not cost as much as it will to place as much of the oldtime stone as will be necessary to make the street what it should be It has to be fixed so why not way Patching will do no more as theres npth ins there patch in sing fun neon established The dolt i tili Jij writer Elk rug ro use rock

I con struct my hotbeds on a different plan from most others I build a more permanent frame First I set cedar posts the width of the bed then nail on boards with an elevation of about eight inches on the back The soil is dug out to a depth of 18 to 30 inches from the glass to suit the crop to be grown The earth is banked around the frame for protection I construct frames as near airtight as possible It requires less protec tion during the severe freezing weather The sash are thoroughly glazed and every crack is puttied The crack across the glass is run with mastica My sash are mostly 4x6 foot with four rows of teninch glass A bar 2x4 inches is placed between each sash It is put down a little be low the edge of the top board but even with the top of the lower edge of frame I use a strip one inch thick the depth of the sash it is nailed on top of the 2x4inch bar overjets the bottom of frame and is even with the top edge I put on a cap board eight inches wide along the top It is nailed to the back board of frame and the bars between the sash This forms a perfect shelter for the sash to slide under the frame being built about four inches wider than the length of the sash I find this a great protection as much heat escapes and much cold enters the crack between the back board and the sash if con structed in the ordinary way I find there is very little necessity for mats or straw for a bed so constructed Frames built after will cost about five dollars per sash With care they will last for years I think every farmer ought to have a frame if only a few sash He can have let tuce green parsley celery etc all winter If any surplus he can al ways dispose of it at a good price I do not think a farmer is half living who does not have a few fresh vege tables on his table from his own frame at all times We do not use as much manure in opr beds as spine other growers I use leaves as they retain the heat much longer than the pure straw manure My mixture is one load of manure and two loads of new oak leaves K Vincent Jr in American Agriculturist FOR BARRELING APPLES Homemade Apparataa That Will Do the Work Just n Well as One More Intricate Many manufactured

that can be successfully performed by any novice When fruit growers first realized that their trees must be sprayed it was currently supposed that any hired man could take a spray pump of any make and cover the trees with a spray solution destruc tive to the insects and fungi but harmless to the tree itself This be lief was the cause of the many that were early recorded against the operators Spraying is now recognized as a science and all of our agricultural colleges are teaching how to do the work correctly The advice is now given Do not trust an inexperienced man behind the of a sprayer Most of the men that spray are mere bunglers at the business having no complete concep ly becoming a profession and we dict that it will not be long before men skillful in spraying trees will be in demand both in the city and soun try It is becoming evident that the owner of a small orchard can better pay an expert owning his own to do the work than to timself invest in an outfit and trust his

office CENTRAL RECORD AH Independent Local Newspaper ISSUED WEEKLY LOUIS LANDRAM Editor and Publisher Lancaster Ky Nov 26 190j THANKSGIVING The acme of civilization and is manifested by appointing a day for giving thanks for the many blessings both temporal and spiritual which we unworthy as we are are permitted to enjoy Such a practice reveals a consciouness of our utter de pendence on an Alwiseand Merciful Providence It further proclaims the fact that as we emerge from the darkness ignorance and superstition of former agesand the effulgent beams of science are shed upon us we realize helplessness and unworthiness This is the nearest approach to the character so much desired and favor ed by Godin the flesh to whose all civilized nations are indebted for their progress and advancement in everything that pertains to national growth security and happiness The practice of being a day for ing thanks is peculiarly Americanand characteristic of American tions It is a step beyond and potentates of other countries who claim to possess power beyond man kind generally So when we observe the anniversary ofWashingtons birth day or celebrate Independence Day we should point with pride to our Thanksgiving Day as one which calls into active exercise the highest most sacred and most ennobling emotions of the human blessings which we enjoy are beyond computation and as boundless as infinite space or endless eternity The basest and meanest character is the man devoid of gratitude We bow our thanks to a friend for the most trivial favor and yet how sad it is to know that many never kneel before the Throne of Grace from which good and perfect gift emanates Speak kindly to the faithful dog and his thanks are expressed by the wag of the tail and the flash of the eye Give the fatted hog his morsel of food and he returns hIs thanks by the grunt It is sad to note the fact that these brutes possess grati tnde in a much higher degree than many of the human family Many have no higher conception of than to fill the stomach with ovsters feast on the proverbial and drink rectified whisky until they are only a short step above the brute and frequently their get on a level with him We desire to such people that the day for thanks is too sacred to be observed in this manner It is eminently to have a sumptuous but it should be received with thanks and be disposed of decently and in good order Inspiration teaches us to give thanks always for all things and at all times So the proper observance of this day does not consist alone in the possession of blessings but in expressing our thanks for them So let us go to church today and be thankful for blessings both temporal and spiritual go home express thanks for our eat heartily and send a meal to our unfortunate neighbors Spend the afternoon in innocent and amusements never speaking unkindly of any one and we will feel enlightenment our teachings gi v soulgratitude- The every familiar Thanksgiving gobbler bodies inform giving appropriate dinner dinners conversation instilLS that we are better men and women and that the Thanksgiving was not issued in vain Let us make every day a day for giving thanks HERES the whole thing in a nut shell as an exchange figures it out It was Schley who commanded in the naval battle of Santiago It was Schley who destroyed the Spanish fleet It was Schleys ship the Brooklyn that had the brunt of the fight and was hit by more shots than all the remainder of the vessels of the fleet If incompetency wins battles and in subordination and cowardice produce results of this kind it would seem that words had strangely their meanings and that the for which the words in their new meanings stand should be cultivated more largely in the United States navy AT a theachers institute in ri recently a prize was offered for the best answer to the question Who is the greatest woman in History The following was unanimously chosen as the best definition The wife of the Missouri farmer of moderate means who does her own cooking washing and ironing brings up a large family of girls and boys to be useful members of society and finds time for her own intellectual and moral improvement is the greatest woman in all APROPOS of the suggestion of the Ohio hasbeens to hold a banquet in which none but defeated dates will be allowed to participate comes the thought that the Kentucky oughtnevertohavebeens might hold one equally as successful and largely attended Advocate In other words the burrtail is largely in the majority in tucky political circles TAKING COUNCIL OF THE Louisville Commercial President Roosevelt does well to consult with Gov Bradley as to affairs in Kentucky The des not know it all nor does he possess all the statesmanship in the republican party in Kentucky as the democrats always assert when they are trying to stir up factional strife in the party but he probably knows more politics than any other one man in Kentucky or in the south And he is by long odds the ablest the most brilliant and the most aggressive re publican leader in the south And Gov Bradley will tell the ores ident that the way to strengtnen the party in Kentucky is by knowing no friends of the administration save those who are loyal to the republican party and its principles and by no enemies of civil liberty and honest elections And the governor will speak as a stalwart republican but at the same time as a sturdy pat loveshiseyes the honor of his native land is sacred To The Public Allow me to say a few words praise of Chamberlains CoughKemedy I had a

The Thanksgiving A LOVE STORY By HANDA I CROCKER mALLIE WOODBURN stood on the broad homey steps of Merriwold taking a sweeping inventory of the November sky And tomorrow is Thanksgiving again he said in a troubled way looking across at Thad the chore man who was busy tying down the rosevines for their win ters rest Yes he answered glancing up time ties as if it had angels wings But time goes dreadfully slow for some people she replied with a shiver turning away Its too mortal mean that those friends of hers couldnt have come to eat Thanks givin with her when they promised Thad concluded to himself as he covered the last refractory cane Then he went around to the kitchen to speak to Genie The mistress is dreadfully put out about those visitors said he confidentially or has something on her mind it cant be shes getting kind o fraid like now since the father and mother are 0 I dunno she answered mysterious Iy If I was judgin Id say she was griev In over send in her lover off without mush f a reason as near as I can Her lover and Thad stared at the prophetic Genie with wideopen eyes Why yes Ned Vickers You know I told you she answered reproachfully 0 but that was a good while ago put In ThadYes I know went on Genie wisely but she had her home ones all along un til lately and now its different And Thad turning toward him suddenly its about this time o year that she shut the doors of Merriwold against him hasnt been Merriwold since And Thad cross your heart now this is a dead se Cross my heart repeated Thad sol emnly Then Genie leaned nearer her attentive auditor and whispered I saw her cryin sometimes elseshe laidaway findout andit ret YOU EAVE DECEIVED MX as if her heart would break only yester day over a picture of Ned Vickers So I think she is grievin over him Thad drew his breath in sharply I ke said softly Then he tumbled along into the milkroom for the pails leaving the perplexed maid wonder lag what it was to Tbad this bit of go ip But when the chore man sat down by amply horn in the dusky tables he mur ared I said I didnt know but I do With the deepening twilight a terra of Mtew sweeping the countryside TJw cBrtaimi were at Merriwold and t ritt Uu illumiMted ski libra I didntknow know more anyone at Merriwold about it CAme c tot lED u thaa kaow a hearth The lamp on a sidetable was turned low for Miss Woodburn was not reading she was looking into the fire and listening to the click of the icy snow against the panes Ten years ago tonight it stormed just this way 0 how remember it Perhaps she breathed a prayer for her lips moved inaudibly then she went into the adjoining room where Genie was braid ing her long beautiful hair before the and humming Douglas Tender and TrueDont sing that tonight Genie she sharply Then she asked where I dunno maam unless he is in his room answered the maid in a sympathetic mirror saidalmost Thadwas THREW HER ARMS ROUND HIS HECK tone but I am sorry Miss Hallie if I disturbed you with my singing No matter now replied Miss Wood burn hastily I guess I am a little nerv ous Would you go up to Tbads room and see if he is there Genie Sew upstairs and along the cor ridor to the west wing but Thad was not in his room Ugh ejaculated she as the storm beat on the closed shutters I wonder a little myself where the lad is He isnt there she said returning to where her mistress was waiting but thats nothing hes somewhere around and will be in by and by It is scarcely dark yetAs Genie said by and by Thad came in with the snowflakes thickly sifted in his curly hair Why where have you been cried Miss Woodburn inan excited yet relieved tone To the village maam came the an swer reluctantly On such a night as this and she held up her hands in astonishment he said The harness gave out and I had to get it mended Then he went up to his room chuckling to himself My Ive told more lies to night than for a long time A compre hensive smile lighted up his face as he sat down to warm his toes An hour passed and the great watchdog rattled his chain and barked furiously In a moment the bell in Thads room tinkled jerkilyI shed call me he laughed obey ing alacritySee said Miss Woodburn from over her book The chore man went out quickly let ting in a furry of icy snow behind Presently he came back bringing a flurry in with him Its a man who has lost his way he said and hed like a cup of coffee and a bit of warmth before he goes further And its an awful night emphasized Thad A tramp and Miss Woodbvrns face was a study It la hardly safe for us to If hes a tramp hea an awfully nice one interrupted Thad forgetting his manners but whoever he he is almost froze A vision of Ned Vickers going out into that other storm rose up And he had gone to the bad people said Maybe he was a tramp by this time Bring him into the diningroom then said kindly a savage spitefulaeaa Whoever beard of ft sic traaipt Yes I him is too I she pokingthe ft 1 s She stood afar off with her hand folded in her white dimity wile THad ushered in the stranger I think I am a little faint he said sinking into the comfortable seat near the fire and letting his on his hand while a dilapidated cap dropped to the floor I Hallie Woodburn was on the other side of the heavy portiere but the voice her and she peeped through When she saw the strangers attitude however she came into the room Are you ill she asked or only faint Trom hunger- It is hunger madam he answered without looking up Hurry Genie said Miss Woodburn solicitously the stranger is nearly fam ished Then she went for a reviving draught Here she said drink this you will feel better But he did not take the he looked up instead I am hungry of heart he said with a pitiful intonation ten years of soul famine Hallie With a glad cry of recognition Miss Woodburn threw her arms around the nice tramps neck 0 Ned Vickers it is you she said joy ouslyIt is what is left of me he answered brokenly I have come back to be for givenThere is nothing to forgive exclaimed Miss Voodburn and you must not go away again Ned dear kissing his where the snowdamp hair waved just is it used to do But Hallie you dont want me if Ive lone to the bad No I only came back to be forgiven though I do love you as of old Miss Woodburn hid her face on the shab by coat and Thad hurried away to the kitchen closing the doors softly after him What is it now asked Genie ungra ciously not tnderstanding the look on his faceWhy its Ned Vickers answered Thad triumphantly and I came away to let them get acquainted all over again After awhile Thad slid quietly into the diningroom with the mollified Genie in his wakeThad said Miss Woodburn smiling happily this is an old friend of mine He will be our guest tomorrow and we will have Thanksgiving after all Show him to the south guest chamber and when he it ready bring him down at once the will be waiting He is my dear old love she explained to Genie later but I presume you dont quite understand 0 yes maam answered the maid flitting about like a butterfly and blushing like a peony How Genie You have no lover 0 yes maam I have came the an swer shyly Indeed Who Genie Thad maam simpered the girl in con fusion Well Genie and Miss Woodburn took the girls face between her palms dont ever send him away then That I wont maam I wont be such a An idiot finished Miss Hallie Well heaven has been better to me than I de serve Genie and I will begin my thanks giving tonight When the nice tramp came down for his coffee Miss Woodburn exclaimed in sur prise Why Ned Vickers you have de eived me And hadnt he As he stood there laugh ing dressed in the latest style with a gleam of gold in his attire Forgive me Hallie he said and he stooped to kiss her as in the olden days I wanted to surprise you then too I wondered if you could love me in tramp ish apparel Vell youve found out she answered gayly Then she looked lovingly at him over the coffeeurn and said softly To morrow will indeed be a real ThanUfnlf

November is regarded and always has been so as a kind of American harvest home It is the harvest of the golden corn which was the main reliance of time hardy pioneers of America and its ingathering marked the close of the years agricultural labors And the season has other advantages and inducements for such a festival When the yellow maize is garnered the ruddy apples are in the bin and the nuts

filling your head with such stuff If i catch him round here Ill put a bullet through his Dutch carcass Alida did not wait to hear more Her heart was heavy for she knew that trouble was brewing and that the Boer would be slaughtered like sheep and she had learned to love time simple people who the Yaal years before in order that they might live as their conscience dictated but there was one Boor she loved more than all the others and to him she had pledged her Paul Van Dora was across the veld with his cattle lIe had gone for miles to find the water course where his cattle could escape the hot burning grass of the veld and preserve their lives He was a fine specimen of the young Boer his broad brimmed hut kept the rays of the burning sun from burning his bright blue eyes eyes from which a soft love light seemed to come especially as their owner thought of ii dear Alida His body was garbed in a good homespun suit cloth which his mother had woven from wool his father and himself had sheared from their own sheepHe thought of Alida and then of her father He knew time Outlander was He wondered whether the daughter would ever be content to leave her his hard life When night came he dreamt that sue was in trouble His sleep was disturbed and he went down to the waterside and bathed his brow the cooling water acting like magic on his fevered brain Again he slept and once more he dreamt of her He was in danger that she was calling for him In fright he woke his face was perspiration his body trem bled violently He took his gun and the veld directed only by the remembrance oi the voice he hind heard in his dream On he went covering mile after mile his cattle were forgotten he thought only of Alida of his love the one more precious to him than all the diamonds owned by the De Beer company As the first rays of the glorious sun shot across the veld bathing the distant hills in superb grandeur Paul saw a gling in the grasp of a big powerful man It was enough The girl must be Alida and his dream was a premonition after all He raised his rifle he had no fear lIe Iud learned Oom Paul Krugers of putting a bullet through a skull at a hundred yards and a man was a bigger target than a buzzard He took careful aim pulled the trigger and fired At the same instant the mans grasp of the girl relaxed and she was free the bullet had pierced his heart Like an ostrich in its flight Paul flew across the veld As he came near he saw the girl on her knees bending over the dead man Nearer still and he saw that the Alida and that she was heartbroken Alida Alida he called but she did not answer He approached and saw that the dead man was her father and he was filled horrorWhat I done he cried Alida turned on him Her eyes were dry and burning She waved him back Do not touch me she cried you have killed my father I was coming to warn you to tell you that be sought your life because because her bosom heaved with emotion her voice left her she stood dumb and paralyzed between her dead father and her lover Paul made no attempt to speak His was bent and from his heart there rose a silent prayer to Heaven for forgive ness and for blessings on the bereaved girlFor several minutes they stood thus A conflict waged in the girls bosom a between grief for her parent and love for the young burgher He would have killed you she cried at last but you killed him Heaven guide me to do right Then she threw herself on her knees and wept The Boer stood motionless and silent in the presence of her grief Gradually her tears dried her emotions became calmer She put out her hand to Paul He took it in silence She looked up in his face and whispered You are all I have in the wide world now 0 Paul my fathers country is about to make war on your republic You will have to fight When the war is over come to me Till then do not speak to me I cannot bear it Can you forgive me It was all he said he dare not try to utter more She took his hand and pressed her lips to it
