scraggy pines made polite obelsanco to tnelr bareheaded neighbors the Halfway house had stood a harbinger of com fort for a score of years And now though the old stage lay rotting In the valley and the traveler thundered along by rail beneath Us Very foundations the friendly gables teemed beckoning to Imaginary guests Tonight too the pine branches crackled merrily on the wide hearth ns if the snubs of a progressive pub lic were not worth minding lighting up the long low room In the gloaming of the Christmas Eve Two women conversed In tender monotone in the cheery illumination and the elder was saying The paper cannot be found and of course the property goes to your Uncle Hermon The other rose wearily from her place before the fire and stood loan Ing her head against the black old fashioned mantel Then uncle really Intends taking our home away from us7 she said in torrogatlvely looking down into the patient mother face Certainly my daughter came the reply in cheerful resignation and he expects to take possession soon too Hut your father always made much of the Christmas time and for his sake we will keep the day gladly you knowYes know and the girl turned away toward the next room tucking up her sleeves with little glngely thrusts as she went The brace of partridges Brother Ned had snared the day before made a pretty picture as they waited plump j and round for the last turn of the skewer After they were ready for the morrows roasting the tall queenly girl went over to the open doorway a moment to contemplate tho plctur landscape she bad loved all her IlIeEven the scrubby oaks are restful here she mused and I dont see I am to bring myself to be turned out likea beggar Making a sudden dash at her eyes with her handkerchief she resumed Of course If mother is bent on hav ing a sunny Christmas in the faco of It all why I wont be shadowy Hearing a cheery whistle outside she continued Ned doesnt caro about It boys dont 0 yes correcting the uncharitable thought he does care but not as I do The mother rocked to and fro bet fore the fragrant blaze humming an old refrain The dusk gathered l 1WhoCares for His Charity P gloomily in the corners of the room while the dancing light glinted along the smoky rafters as If eager to dispel all thought of loneliness Mrs Cameron glanced upward In the years agone when the rafters were not so smoky and the dear old rooms not so dingy as now the Halfway mounItaln an3Ipia 7 IThe road down to the village Is as smooth as glass he said brushing tho snowflakes from his clothes on to the bright hearth Horses will have to be sharp shod to make the slide tomorrow know Handing some letters to his mother he began to plan for a jolly good time the next day while he separated the sprays of the glossy ever greenAttracted by his festive mnnner his sister volunteered to help and fell to sorting the crimson clusters for deco rating the table and brightening up the rooms on the morrow Of courso he cant care much she whispered rebelllously watching thq satisfaction shining on the boyish faceWell have popcorn and chestnuts and browned birds and everything cried Ned as his plans bubbled over Everything repeated his sister bitterly and then by And by have nothing But Ned did not bear for his mother was saying Heres a note from Mr Fulton Gave It to Me Cousin Jessie while a smile lighted up her careworn face Then she passed the paper to Edith murmuring All winter long in the dear old house Papa has concluded to let you stay In the house until spring as he can not find a tenant before that time He will stop on his way to Fultons In the morning and talk with you about the matter was what Edith read Then she laid tho slip of paper on her brothers palm wondering If by that time anything would happen that they would not have to go at all Ned tossed the note Into the ma ternal lap contemptuously and his suri ny face darkened Who cares for his charity extension Id like to know he exclaimed Its only because be cant do otherwise and make It pay His lip curled disdainfully and quiv ered into silence He did care after all poor little brother And Ediths smote her as she kissed his symlathIAfIts a veritable toboggan ex claimed Hermon Camerons wife as the fine team cantered up the trench erous slide Really am afraid of an Faintheart what can happen laughed her husband giyly as he cracked his whip over the sleek baysTruly it did not seem possible for anything to happen out of harmony with the lovely holiday Nevertheless a few minutes later the serenity of the day was all broken up for the Camerons Frightened at something by the roadside the horses became unmanageable and in a twinkling be coming detached from the sleigh ran wildly around the upper turning throwing Mr Cameron heavily to the groundThe Impetus of the accident sent the vehicle spinning down the glassy In cline Its occupants perfectly helpless to stay their mad light The Fultons startled to see a run away team dash into their grounds ran out to recognize It as that of their friend Cameron and In a short time they were bending solicitously over the unlucky man who prone on tlje Christmas snow was moaning uncon sciously We will take him up to the with owL said Mr Fulton glancing In the direction of the friendly gables while you go for the doctor addressing his ron and then we will look for the rut of them- Prudence Cameron prepared a couch for her unfortunate brotherinlaw with a queer sensation tugging at her heartstrings lie had meant to stop but not In this manner Surely there was a Providence In It Here are some papers we picked up said Mr Fulton laying a toll In the widows hand They must belong to him Examine them and see I havent my glasses with me In her own room Mrs Cameron looked the papers over Of course theyre his she mused unrolling the grimy outer wrapper Unfolding tho inside paper she read I hereby give and bequeath the Halfway house to my sisterinlaw Prudence Cameron andShe read no further Down at the bottom of the Instrument was the pe culiar chirograph of her Injured broth erinlaw It was never lost she exclaimed but Hermon never meant that I should see this Putting the precious document away carefully she went downstairs with n queer little smile triumphant on her patient face The physician and Hcrmons family had arrived and the wife was saying We went right on tobogganing down to the uneven road at the lower turning Then the cutter went to pieces against n tree and we were upset but not hurt- She ended with a hysterical laugh as she looked toward the whitefaced husbandStunned a considerable bruised a bit but fairly ready for his Christmas dinner said the doctor as he took his leave In the kitchen Edith surveyed the brace of partridges and wondered IfI there was enough to go round while she cogitated the Fultons came In with a bountiful dinner We planned for company laughed Jolly Mrs Fulton and were bound to have it even If we meet them halfway And soon the Christmas cheer filled the lonely old rooms In the midst of the merry Christmas dinner Prudence Cameron looked across the table at her brotherinlaw who pillowed up in an armchair wa munching a browned bird and said playfully Christmas gift Brother Hermon I meant to have brought sonic thing he stammered in confusion Ibut you I know you did Inter rupled Prudence her fate glowing with victory and it Is nil right Mr Fulton gave It to methe will I mean and thank you again Had the house tumbled down tho mountain side Hermon Cameron could not have been more surprised He sank back among the pillows with a suppressed groan My heart be said faintly My heart You are hurt more seriously than we thought for cried the Fultons jn alarmOh no murmured Herraon am just a little overcome althollghIFulton over 1he toothsome plum pud ding he did not look Prudence Cam ijrons way again that day And that night Ned sat before jhe crackling fire on the broad hearth while the dancing light touched his ruddy face qnd glinted up along the smoky rafters and whispered between his palms Dear Lord we are so Ihnnkful for the blessed Christmas tlde but just now we are tlmnkfuller

largely of concentrated feed than when largo amounts of coarse fodder are consumed and it is a matter of common observation that less water is consumed when green succulent feeds form n considerable part of tho ration than when it consists of dry feed That the amount of water taken oven in dry food may considerable is shown by the fact that a ration of 12 pounds of oats and 1C pounds 0 hay furnishes some four pounds of water A succulent ration would furnish much more In general a horse will drink from CO pounds or less to CC pounds per day though under tho influence of warm weather or hard work tho amount may range from 85 to 110 pounds or over In some experiments In tho British army it was found that when allowed to choono horses drankabout one fourth of their daily allowance In the morning and not far from threeeights at noon and about the same porportion at night In connection with a number of the tests at the experiment stations in tho United States the amount of water

Washington Dec 15 Senator Hannan request that General Wood ho called to testify before tho senate military committee and the letter of Secretary Hoot assorting that tho re ports of testimony had boon garbled worn the principal developments In tho Investigation of the conduct of Woodf heard witnesses against tho confirmation of the ap polntment of General Wood to be a major general Major General Ilrooko was on tho stand and Introduced two orders which he said General Wood had not obeyed whllo In command at Santiago Dr Fisher also testified- In addition to his corroboration of Dr Fishers testimony Mr IaFontl see told of tho manner In which ho had learned of Ilellalrs character and swore also that General Wood knew all about It Ho said he learn ed from persons who went to Havana from Florida that Uollalrs had served five years In Florida convict camps throe years In one and two years In another Tho crime of which he had been convicted was forgery on a branch of tho Dank of England Mr Morrison a lawyer at 44 Hroad way Now York testified that he was Interested In tho eloctrozono company of Havana and that his com pany received contracts of General Wood for disinfecting the city Hi said that there Is still duo to his com pany the sum of 8000 on contracts and that Cuban officials In Havana swear tho money was paid to General Wood to discharge the Indebtedness Mr Morrison said he believed that General Wood received that money In an open letter which was addressed to Senator Proctor acting chairman of tho committee on mili tary affairs Secretary Root asks that the testimony of General Tasker H Dllss in the Investigation of General Leonard Wood be corrected stating and enclosing tho letter of General miss that tho testimony given the press was exactly contrary to that given In fact The letter in part follows At tho same time I wish to call tho attention of tho committee to the fact that some persons seem to bo per slsently furnishing tho press false statements of tho testimony taken be fore you tho perversion of the evi dence being in every case to tho prejudice of General Wood It can not bo doubted that tho newspapers publishing these retorts believe them to bo true and that tho reports art sent to thorn by the reports of the press in good faith under tho same belief It Is evident that sumo per son Is undertaking to convoy to the press representatives information of what goes on In the committee and is taking advantage of the fact that tho evidence Is not published to stale It falsely for tho purpose of injuring General Wood In the public estima tlon so that while your committee will act upon the evidence actually before It tho public Judgment as to how you ought to act will bo based upon an entirely different and erroneous Idea of what the evidence Is If tho evidence actually given called for General Woods presence I should of course bring him back from tho Philippines but Illo not feel Jus tified In withdrawing him from the Important duties which he is per forming on account of false reports of evidence which has never In fact been given It hardly seems fair that an officer who Is not here to protect himself but Is serving his country faithfully under orders on the other side of the world should have his reputation stabbed In this way I earnestly request your committees attention to this subject Cities Dominate Says

see a shadow peeing front the handmill but Antywlno La Chance In pursuit of it pasted across the bar of light a lithe Ionsbodied and longlimbed shape Ills uncovered blond hair flying back from a face cut like tho highbred features of a French noble He bounded by the handmill and tossed a fence at the foot of the garden When Antywlno thought he was about to overtake the object down tho ravine a scamper of horses hoofs sounded through the valley Peggys captor hall left a horse ready for flight Instead of making southeastward for the Hock creek bridge und the road to Springfield he rounded the bluff and the village and was eM dcntly striking toward Beardsiown The western continuation of New Salem street stretching across the prairies until it met and curved with bluffs along the Sangamon was the route to JUI1I1tlonLightfooted as a deer scarcely paus ing to think Antywine with Inherited Instinct turned east toward the river though It was the direction opposite that In which Peggy was carried A boat could be found at the mill The river was high and running swiftly By taking advantage of the unusual current he might reach the bluff road as soon as a horse floundering across the mud uf the prairies would be able to reach It What he would then do afoot he did not attempt to foresee There was a small settlement at the mouth of Hock creek called Wolf Oxen were rcoo plentiful than horses In Wolf as New Salem yet Antywlne had one passing flash of determination to go there and demand a horse Dut breathless Ith haste he plunged through naked woods and down the terraced bank of the Sangamon sliding on dead leaves In his descent stralgfit to the mll The iKJAt was tied above the dam lie pushed out before he thought of the dam hat covered by swelling water and roalng across the width of the Sangamon Antywlne was never more alive than when his feet were planted In a boat He came of a line of voyageurs who had threaded Canadian rapids time out of mind Although his later cars had been spent In Belleville off great stream courses his In born dexterity was too much a part of him to be forgotten There was no time for thought He swooped down the curve poised in the stern of his boat laughing aloud at the shock which nearly swamped him The boat ran without direction making for partly submerged trees while he balled with his hands Antywlne stuck out an oar for a rudder and turned his craft Into the racing current So baling with one hand and steering with the other ho got under way and was soon nble to sit on the bench fit the oars into rowlocks and pull with the lacing force which spun him along Branches and logs menaced his dim course The shores were black Froth spots like white money appeared and disappeared around him with phosphoric swiftnessIturned toward the Illinois Beards town by prairie and riverbluff route was nearly 40 miles from New Salem Frost was out of the ground and a bottomless trail would delay the most hurried rider The scalloped bank cscendlng and descending In cliff and hollow seeming to scratedI Antywlne finally curved a wider current and he made for shore through drift He drew the boat out and left It beached above the rising waterThere was no sound abroad in all that void darkness except the Sanga mons low note and the intermittent cry of frogs lie thought of sloughs on the Beardstown road and of hun gry wolves Infesting the night Starlight had become lost In thickening mist and as Antywlno pushed on he felt the sting of rain in the face lie tried to distinguish a track which ought to darken the palll turf near this place and set out in the direc tion of Beardstown He heard at his left the suction of horse feet In mud It came nearer and he braced himself to spring at the asftwo horses instead ot one plunged x l

the gay throng of Christ mas travelers that enlivened the dull waiting room Whenever the station masters stentorian Yoke rang through the room she started tensely only to settle back stiff and alert as before She was small and slightly bent Her decent black dress though far from the latest cut had a nattiness of its own She had probably passed twoscore and ten yet there was a youtbfulness about her that had defied hard work and trouble and sorrow I felt sure that she had experienced all three At last she glanced shyly In my directio- ni Its tiresome waiting Is It nol7 I ventured Oil no Its all so new and strange j to me and then Ive only an hour to wait liar voice like herself had it pleasant alertness Perhaps youre unaccustomed to traveling I suggested tentatively This morning is the second time since I was ten years old that Ive been on a train of cars she answered with suggestive accuracy I didnt used to mind staying at home but the longing to go somewhere has seemed to grow on me Why one time I even thought of setting In the milk train that makes up at our station It backs up and switches round for bout an hour io I could Imagine Id started for nobody knows where I eten got so far is hoping a cinder d blow in my eye like when I was a little girl and went to the city with father Its a mercy I never told my Idee Folks would have thought I was getting in my do tage I aint tiring you be 12 she Itukedanxiously I dont know when talked so touch about myself I I hastened to reassure her remark fag that home cares had doubtless prei vented her getting away wltbjwas only eleven when I began making bread and pies I was the only child IOUsee and mother began to be lame then She kept right on growing worse and worse till finally her joints all stiffened up just like the bones between She suffered dreadful till the last fifteen years or so when the sore ness kind of left i now long did you say It was since you rode on the cArs I askedIt Just forty years ago this morning rtItwas on my eighteenth birthday I was born the day before Christmas Im fiftyeight today wouldnt have thought it what folks all tell me I jIthink Id look as old as Me though somehow I dont feel yearsImorning as this the snow all asparkle and crisp underfoot Goodloc said twas like fairyland It was Goodloe Mortona faint Slush came on her faded cheek who took me on the Christmas excursion to Buffalo We iwau tg to the falls but something tprevented It was the next spring he asked me to marry him Dear me You wouldnt think to hear me running on that youre the tlrst person Ive ever told it to I wouldnt let Goodloc tell it neither I was that afraid mother might hear She wjis growing worse fast and it would her to think I couldnt leave home mad marry like other girls Goodloe felt quite worked up for u spell but finally he married Sully Skinner Shes raised him a big family and been a good wifeIfancied a8lgu escaped her er a moment she went on In her cheery way Well as I was saying the last time rode on the curs was on my eighteenth birthday By pushing UI chnlr In front of her mother could walk a little yet hut I got Susan Ann Huggles to look In on her once In awhile for father couldnt be depend ed on If he got after a new patent Ides You see he was always going after patents Were they a success Oh my not lIe spent pretty much all mother had Her folks was pretty well off you know The only one of his Idees that was ever any good was a machine for lifting mother I dont know what wed have ever done without it It turned with crank like n windlass so I could lift liar alone just as easy rrs TIRESOME WAITING IS IT NOT weightjpatented but I made him promise hed never lisp It to father One time the doctor had a young doctor up from a New York hospital to see mother and he thought the ma chine wastgreat Why ho says turn pl1tIget out alt the patents you want to and welcome So he hud a photo graph took of It Afterward felt real kind of sorry I let him do it he was so young and green looking WeU you can see what with moth er helpless and father patenting there wasnt much chance for me to get away but I always had a hankering to see Niagara falls Its a sight once seen stays by they say When our money was more plenty I laid out to go a number of times but something or other always turned up to prevent The first time father was took with a crick In his back The next time the daughter of the woman who was com ing to take care of mother had her leg broke In a runaway Once everything seemed moving favorably Clarissy Stringham had come to take care of mother I had my ticket there and back and even my lunch was put up- for I was to start at 5 In the morning That night there come up the worst thunderstorm you ever see and washed out the track on our branch so the trains couldnt nun for two days Yes mother died a llttle more than a year ago just a year and three months after father I was so thank ful she went before me You see she had been sick so long and then she was naturally pretty high spirited she said Id just let folks run right over me so she used to speak out pretty sharp and sometimes twas awful hard to please her but I never minded for I knew she meant all right Oh you dont know how lost I was after she was gone Why there hasnt been a night sence I dont wake up tout the hour she used to ask me to pull her a little to one side or lower the cushion under her knees dr do something to make her easier Sometimes I find myself setting right up In bed thinking certain shes calling me She was unable to go on for a mo ment and though Im called easy In conversation I could think of no com forting word And Vat so thankful she coutln ued regaining her self control the money held put till she was gone Ive had to let the place go Last week after everything was settled up I had just 25 left Through It all every bodys been just as good to me as they could be I often wonder why for Ive never had time to do anything for them Well I had plans all laid to go to work for Mrs Jennings at a dollar a week when one eveningIt was just n week agoI was setting alone feeling pretty blue and thinking twasnt likely now Id ever see the falls and In stepped

west came in sten torian tones A warm hand clasp and the last I saw of my little friend was a cheery expectant face lost In the hurrying roved of Christmas travelers r l 1rJ II CopyriGht by P A Oberl i N 12 Christmas morning not many years ago I found myself up a tree in Crusoes Island I was hunting meat for my Christmas thin ner shortly aft er daybreak that morning and as the most abundant sup ply was prom XODINBOX CIIUSOK Iswl by the pee carles or wilt hogs that ranged the island I had left camp and started out after them It was great tun for awhile for I fell In with a herd of about a dozen anti bad secured two of the varmluts when the survivors seeming to tblnk that turn about Is fair play began hunt Ing me Then the situation assumed a different aspect entirely for the pee cary when aroused Is one of tho most bloodthirsty of creatures and as revengeful as an Indian Fortunately for me a great gum tree stool conveniently near and by means of the limas that swung from Its branchi I was calmIly down upon the little black boasts SIthey raged around the trunk But a peccary as Is well known can enter lain only one Idea at a time and the Idea that possessed the shallow brains of my friends Mow was how to effect aroundIof expectation and patiently waited for me to descend And they wouldsit there I felt sure knowing poccary na ture as did until they starved me to death rather than allow me to escape I had only a few rounds of ammuni klllaiIend peppered the hldos of several oth era so that If they ever hall the Idea of leaving they elltertalllltlI entirely I bad not a about me The limbs I sat astride of were not so soft as they might have Keen If they had been made to order and I was getting uncomfortable when noticed a commotion In the herd The leader of the band a Jrllllold tusker with recurred fangs like ish ftclmlters suddenly stool up andIsniffed the air then he wlioof of rage and despair struck a 210 gait and disappeared the jungle followed by all the survivors I was saved by a black man and n dog It may or may not be true that the peccary has as Intense a dislike for the black man as he has for dog but anyway the combination proetlI effective in this instance who appeared at this juncture was the SURVIVORS f only other in that forest save myself my sable servitor Pappy Ned lie had been out all night hunting crupauds or forest frogs and was on his way back to our camp with n backload of batrachlaus tho legs of which were to be served up in a style which only Pappy Ned know to perfection Goramlghty mossa ho exclaimed in

theyve good rea son for not liking me fancy But you came along just in the nick of time old friend and I owe you another reward for saving my life a second lime Ho had nursed me through a lever a few

Ills yere bag wlv two dozen flue tat crapauds In um skit Pappy Ned set to work dressing or to be exact undressing the peccaries being careful not to taint time flesh with the contents of tho peculiar musk glniu which the species carries on Its back and while he is thus engaged seems n good opportunity for me to make my explanation as to time exact location of Crusoes Island It is not as ninetynine persons In n hundred think the Island of Juan Fer nandez on the southwest const of South America but It Is n good many miles nearer the coast of our own Unit ed States In the southeastern part of the Caribbean sea I will not waste any time either the readers or my own In argument hurt respectfully refer the earnest Inquirer to old Crusoe himself Robinson Crust Rsq mar iner of Bristol England whose adven tures were first written out and pub lished by Daniel De Ioe in 1710 was somewhere In latitude 11 degrees north of the equator when he was wrecked that Is of course assuming there ever rECCART was an entity called Crusoe In the flesh Hut whether he ever existed or not that Is where De Foe placed his hero when he had him wrecked on time coast of hit Island To quote the words of Crunoe himself just before It happened The master made an ob serration as well as he could and found that he Will in about 11 degree of north latitude so that we were gotten beyond tho coast of Guiana and beyond the river Amatone toward the Orino co commonly called the Great river Now that would be evidence sum cleat for any sailor but let Crusoe fur timer explain as he does well along In his narrative when be first circum navigates his Island kingdom The land which I perceived to the west and southwest was the great Island of Trinidad on the north point of the mouth of the river Orinoco Trinidad as everybody knows is off the north coast of South America and is one of the finest British possessions in the West Indies The only other Is land which fully answers the descrip tion given by Crusoe In relation qf location to Trinidad is that of Tobago from which Sir Walter llalelgb prob ably derived the name of the weed we call tobacco- I long held the theory that this was Crusoes island and In order to prove it went down there on a bunting and exploring expedition afterward writ ing a wok about my adventures which gives all the evidence even If It does not suUlclently establish the facts At any rate I played Crusoe for months in Tobago the Island of the ancient mariners adventures built a hut of palm leaves In the forest anti for a time lived as good old Robinson lived with the exception tInt I did not have any goats neither did I tempt an at tack of rheumatism by residing In a cave I oven had my poll parrot my hammock under the palms and my Man Friday only the latter was not a Carib like Crusoes factotum but a black man honest and faithful old Pappy Ned who soon finished skinning those peccaries and was ready to go yr with me back to our hut Hang lag three of the pigs up In a palm tree to await his return Pappy Ned shouldered the other two anti the sack of crapauds and toted the load to camp which was distant but n tulle or so nUll I followed rnu rniCK OBKIU after with my gun As Tobago Is a tropical Island lbe meat would not keep a greet while and we really haul much more than wo could eat but Peppy Ned unld he knew of some black people over on the other side of the forest who would devour what there was left provided ho could get word to them In time There never Will n more beautiful situation for a hut than the site ofimine on a hilltop above the forest line with views of tropical woods and shin lag shore and as the weather that Christmas day was simply perfect I ordered lily mum to make our spread In the open beneath tho cocoa palms sheltered from the blazing sun by the golden rooftrees only So he set the table out of doors and lost no time la getting nt the cooking which was done over an open fire Poppy Neil was as adept at preparing exquisite dishes from next to nothing ns any Parisian chef that ever lived We hail garden tilled with such plants as the manioc tails sweet potato arrowroot yam etc not to mention corn and mountain rice From n wild grove of coffee trees I obtained the fragrant berry for my morning leverage also cacao or choco late from another cope on the bottler of the forest while the palms above and around uiy lint held a de llclou cool drink in their unripe nulls Pappy Ned dried and grated the cassava tubers making famine from which be cooked great ntH more than a toot across The mice of the cowava li poisonous In Its crude state but It Is converted Into a palatable ubtnnw by heat and form the bal of the noted CAsnarccp or pepper pot We always bad a pepper pot on hand at a standby Into which we threw the odd pieces of neat left over after ordinary re pasts and a goodly amount of the pec cary flesh was thin disposed of the cassarecp acting a a preservative II well as condiment hut pepper pot was a poor mans makeshift Pappy Ned always declared and the day be fore he had walked the beach for tea turtle eggs several score of which he had brought back to camp together with a flue fish he hAd caught on the bore After working three or four hours THE BEGAN HUNTING ME I over the oper Ore Peppy Ned carne to announce Dlmmh done ready anti at tilt same time banding me n cashew cocktail made frountfe

lie Monroe Doctrine In All Probability a Contest of Arm Between the German Empire and the United States In the Near Future Will Take Place Honolulu Dec IMilch Interest has been aroused here by a report of Cnl Joius of the Hawaiian militia to nov Carter of time territory of Ha wail In which Col Joium In com rnfntlng on the strategic Importance of the Hawaiian iHlandu and time need of strong defenses quoted Mnj Gen Mur Arthur U S A as predicting a war In the Immediate future between the United States and Germany and that the principal scene of tlie lighting would be in the Pacific ocean with the Hawaiian Islands as an objective point Col Jones report quotes Gn Mac Arthur as saying that the panGer manic doctrine which Is being spread throughout the world Is being fostered and propagated by the Imperial coy ernment III every possible way It Is strong nnd getting stronger wherever German people settle even among lemons who have been citizens of the United Slates tor years In connection therewith one fact can not be overlooked to wit There were few Germans In the American army during the war with Spain so row Indeed that the presence of a German was noted as being a rare oc ciirreme The theater of operations Is chang ing gradually Into the Pacific Tho German people are multiplying very rapidly nnd emigrating In large mum bore the tide of emigration being di retied by the Cerman government toward South America Tae manufac lured products of the Gorman empire overbalance their consumption so that a market has to be erected for the sin plus The known policy of the emperor Is to acquire colonies which will provide markets for such overproduc thou and places to which the tide of emigration shall be directed for strengthening the fatherland Throughout nil South American countries the Germans are advancing In commercial power nnd prestige Tile conclusion seems Inevitable that the Interests of Germany In South Am erica where today large colonies num boring hundreds of thousands presage another testing and straining of the Monroe doctrine and In all probability a contest of arms between that power and the United States In lad near fur tore in which event no ono can now I forecast the attitude of England and other European powers Therefore It Is the duty of the federal government to matte Itself as strong as possible so as to be able to care fpr Itself in any emergency No nation or number of nations will bo In a position to mako an attack on the Pacific coast without firbt capturing these Islands On MacArthur says the report does not correctly reptoscnt his views In any particular and utterly misrepre sents them in some Otherwise I o has nothing to say Col Junes Is surprised at the publi cation and says that Gen MacArthurs expressions made during a social conversation were Intended to emphasize the need of strength In these Islands RECRUITING MARINES An Additional Battalion to Be Held In Readiness Washington Dec 11lt Is learned that nn

the Best Site On the Exposl tlon Grounds For a State Edifice Has Wide and Deep Lawn For Dlue Grass In Front and a Beautiful Cluster of Cedar Trees In the Plot To say that the Kentucky Building at the Louisiana Purchase Exposi Ion is the most pretentious ever erected to represent the State at either a national or International fair is putting It very mildly If Kentuck lans have been ashamed of their State buildings at former expositions and there Is no denying this fact the assertion may be made without fear of contradiction that no citizen of the State will look upon the Kentucky Building at the St Louis Worlds Fair without feeling proud f Ills nativity and tine building which marks the dawn of a new era in Kentuckys life When it was stated that the Kentucky Building occupies the most commanding of nil Stale structures on the ground the writer spoke advisedly It stands within what is commonly known as the main picture of the great show while other State buildings are to be found 1 half mile away on the plateau of States It therefore occupies a pow sition at once the envy and admira tion of citizens cf sister States Sitting well back on a lawn two hundred feet wide by three hundred and sixtyfive feet long it is at an in tersection of two of the main thor oughfares of the exposition one leading from the Grand Basin by the Palace of Education and the Mines Building to the United States Fish cries the other by the Government Building and the Metal Pavilion to the terrace of Louisiana Purchase States the palace of Fine Arts Festi vat Hall the Cascade Gardens and the restaurant pavilions Can one lr agine a more ideal location Every American citizen holds the Govern ment building as part his and when visiting an exposition whether for a day or for a month includes the structure that represents Uncle Sam as many times as possible in his tour of the grounds To come to the Government Building he must see Ken tucky It may be justly assumed then with all these points of vantage that The New Kentucky Home will be seen by more people than any other building of this kind at the fair There is no describing the Ken tucky Building It must be seen to have its beauty appreciated As the architect would say however It coy ers an area 138 feet by 108 feet in eluding porches and verandas The building may bo said to be en tirely surrounded by porches and vow j rrandas Every side is an imposing en with the front and the rear emphasized by massive porches To the original plans have been added an attractive stoop as an approach to the front porch Midway between this stoop and the wide roadway to 5thesouthwest of the Mines Building the lawn takes on the form of a ter race the beauty of which will be heightened as the bluegrass nur lured by the snows in winter peeps through its native soil two carloads lining been transported to St Louis for this purposeto await the admir ing gaze of the thousands who will pass the Kentucky asphalt walks to the hospitality of this Kentucky HomeTo the right of this lawn is a clus ter of beautiful cedars which rustic kanchea and Its cooling shade will sake an inviting spot to many visit rs The walk li ads around the northwest of the building by the rear entrance to the roadway previously described as running by the Govern ment building to the Palace of Fine IArts etc Here at the rear of the building stands several of the largo trees that made Forest Park the seat of the Exposition famous before it was determined to commemorate by an exposition the purchase of the Louisiana territory Two of these trees seemingly grow up through the orch pf the building at the southwest corner The exposition officials dew siring to preserve as far as possible all these monarchs of the forest would not have consented to have these two trees removed had the Building Committee of the Ken tucky Exhibit Association desired It They Rive a touch of nature to the building which is pleasing to the eye Thirtyfive feet from the rear of tho Kentucky Home will be other terraces and steps leading to the lawn upon which Is being erected In the shape eC a fivepointed star the Texas Build lot The Kentucky Building has three loorsthe first to be used as a general reception mall with a hard floor the second as a ladies reception hall and the third with Its roof garden evor the porches at every side as a rendezvous for those who desire to study in blrdsoye lesson tho beauties eC the grounds In the center of the second and third floors is a light p well with attractive balustrades en circling giving to the visitor on thee irat floor looking up a magnificent view of the dome with Its many col red glasses In the center of the re eeptlon hall on the first floor will be Installed exhibits of minerals forestry etc It was at first intended to leave a large mosaic map of the State showing by counties the products and resources but the Building Commit e L tee ata meeting early tula month decided to abandon the plan of having this map and to give the space in n more effective way to the displays mentioned These exhibits will rob ably pierce the lightwell of tho sec and floor It has also been suggested and may be mentioned in this con nection that the heroic groups to stand on either side of the front en trance be chiseled out of Kentucky channel coal The building being perfectly white these groups in their blackness as dark as night would certainly attract attention At each corner of the first floor there will be a small room which with tho stairway leading to the second floor take up tho balance of the first At the northwest end of the second floor are three rooms so ar ranged as to be thrown into one large banqueting hall when desired A small space on the third floor will bo reserved as a serving room with communication with the first and second floors by a dumb waiter The third floor has been made as open as possible to connect with the outer galleries formed of the roofs of tho porches The roof above the third floor the main roofwill also be accessible and will give the visitor one of the very best views possible of the surrounding grounds The main picture of tho exposition the ono which corresponds In Importance to the Court of Honor at the Columbian Exposition at Chicago in 1893thoI Cascade Gardens pouring lions of gallons of water Into the Grand Basin

Palace of Forestry Fish and Game In thlM building as well as in all others on the exposition grounds where Kentucky is to have a part the associa tion has been looked upon with favor by the chief of the department Ken tuckys forestry space Is on two of the main aisles of the building and al most in the center between the two chief entrances Mr A N Struck of Louisville the chairman of the committee and Mr William Boa tho field representative thereof have for counsel and assistance In their work the following wellknown gentlemen Clarence R Mengel Girard Alexan der Cecil EraHler Gen John B Cas tleman and Ernest Kettlg of Louis yule The forestry exhibit from Ken tucky representing seventyodd dif ferent varieties of commercial tim bers will he made as rustic In ap pearance as possible A twelvefoot partition is to separate Kentucky from her neighbor and on this party tion will be displayed all the products of forestry with nixInch sections from logs It was first suggested h Dr Tarleton H lean tho Chief o the Department of Forestry for th Exposition that the timber display he made In eightfoot sections so cut as to show all the grains of the wood To utilize space however it has been determined to show only six inch sections In this way not only is it possible to give a good view or every variety of timber in the State but the finished products from the same Some kind friends of the as soclatlon living In Eastern Kentucky have brought to the attention of the organization a number of massive trees in different counties which approach in size the monsters from California Long sections of these trees will be shown In the outdoor forestry exhibit Dr Bean in a recent talk with an officer of the association appeared anxious to have Kentucky to Include in her space in his department the medicinal plants of the State and the seeds from the various trees Ho also wants mounted specimens cf fish and game shown and in this connection It may be mentioned that tho association Is endeavoring to get tho Polytechnic Society of Louisville to let it have Its wonderful collection of native Kentucky bird skins now In its possession This collection was made by Mr Charles WIckliffe Beckham a relative of Governor J C W Deck ham at the time connected with the Smithsonian Institute at Washington There are three thousands specimens In the collection showing the
