when remembering our countrys greatness and the prosperitywith which we arc we also remember that it all depends on a power above our own and that thanks for all these things are due to Him Tho day is also one of unselfish joy in the blessings of others It may be that to you or me has come sorrow and unhappiness during the year still because of blessings that have fallen on the nation and because our neigbors are mostly happy and prosperous we should take that day for thanksgiving for the blessing ofus all It is needless to name over the things for whichwe should be thankful this The man who does not thankfulCjllcnblessings would waste time in reading about them But one thing we should all be sure ofnone of us sees all the blessings that have come to us nor knows of all dangers that have been averted What seems a to be regretted may turn out one of the best things that ever happened and where the roads seem to have run smoothest we may have been on the edge of the steepest cliffs from which we barely escaped So our thankfulness should not depend on the blessings that we see alone merdes Gods goodness to us without that we be shown every part of it that we have thctruest and best

Tho present trial of Caleb Powers for tho murder of Goebel seems likely to to more sensational than any cf tho other three His lawyers aro fight lag every step of tho way with the greatest ability and if they do not win havo already made it certain that they will be able to appeal tho case to tho Supremo Court of tho Uni ted States which made such severe comments on the Kentucky methods of Justice when a single point in thee ceecaso came before it over a year agoTho first advantage gained was in forcing the Commonwealth to show its hand and answer ready for trial in spite of absence of witnesses Anoth er notable victory was scored when tho defense succeeded over the Vigor ous objection of the States attorney In being allowed to make an avowal withwrItten statements of witnesses in support of tho plea of abatement and bar to the indictment containing a copy of Coy Taylors pardon to Powers This Is the first time tha this pardon has been made a part of tho record and the avowal accompan ied by this exhibit will be a strong bulwark for the defense It the case is appealed to a higher court The bill ot exceptions filed by the defense was another strong spike driven home by tho defense Tho great fight so far has been over the selection of a jury and it is in this that Powers lawyers have made their strongest points They lost their fight to have a jury summoned from Fayetto County and It was or dered drawn from Harrison County a stronghold ot Goebel Democrats Powers objected to this on the ground teat an attempt would bo made to Inject politics into the jury and Mr Wilson his lawyer made a strong plea that the sheriff be instructed to rfmfhon a venire halt of which should bo Republicans This plea the judge denied but at the same time he won so strongly affected by it that he warned the sheriff that It U should be shown that the panel wsnot fairly selected he would set aside the order and direct that a now venire be sum moned The sheriff and his deputies brought In the first hundred men of the panel and after a tlmo spent In examination five jurors wens chosen by Saturday Then on Monday Powers lawyers sprang their great motion This is that tho entire Harrison County vo afro including tho Jurors already se lected be dismissed on the ground that they were not fairly chosen and that there was political bias shown If Powers succeeds In proving the charges In his affidavit and having a Jury called from Fayctto County lo will have won a hard fought victory The notice that such a motion was to be made was given Saturday by At torney Samuel it Wilson ot counsel for Powers but few expected tho de fense attorneys wero armed with the startling evidence which was offered The challenge was accompanied not only by an affidavit from Powers but several other persons who related circumstances showing that the officers that summoned the Jurors wore more or less controlled by political bias Powers after reciting how he nnd the party had been hold responsible for the Goebel murder and how the Democratic handbook con taming thirteen pages of matter relat ing to the crime and to his trials had been freely circulated In tho county showed by statistics that tho voting strength of tho Democrats was but two to cno over tho Republicans and notwithstanding this the relative party affiliation of tho veniremen was nearly ton to one He offered to produce witnesses who will testify that tho Sheriffs die criminated asalnst Republicans In the summoning of the talesmen in one In stance summoning only the Democrat who with n friend Was met on the public highway and in another where two Democrats wero picked out of a crowd on a street ncr where there were men who corI Republicans Judge Morris allowed Commonwealth the privilege of offer ing

Kentucky Correspondence o K CHAPTER XIIIcontinued- To all purposes I was a caged pris oner The risk I had run to spy on them would bo to no purpose unless I could surprise them at their nights work I raged at my impotence Then I thought of tho window Perhaps there was a balcony There was no blind at the window but wooden shutters that fastened with a catch I pushed open the French windows Yes there was the balcony and to my joy I saw that it extended the length of the suite And now a new difficulty stared me In the face At any moment they might enter the bedroom and when I had gained tha balcony outside the salon would shutters prevent my see- Ing within Y As to the first risk I must take It The door hall jammed before It would Jam again The noise mado in opening It would give mo some warn big I gained the balcony there were butters but I could see readily through the Interstices- It was the apartment we had first entered and It bore unmistakable signs of having been minutely ran sacked A large empire desk had been pried open Papers had been abstract ed from too drawers and pigeonholes they lay about In confusion In more than ono place the carpet had been torn up at the edges As I peered cautiously within Ds Venetianblindthey wero searching the room with the knowledge that an article of value Was hidden there- I heard Madame de Varnlcr cry out JBxcItedly A packet concealed between the slats of a Venetian blind had fallen to the floor Without a doubt It was for this packet of papers that they had been searching Madame de Varnler tore the envelope In feverish haste She scanned the contents of the papers with Intense eagerness Dr Starva looking over her shoulder As they read their faces expressed disap- poIntment and chagrin Dr Starva questioned Madame de Varnler repeat edly She put aside his fierce inquiries with Impatience And now I made a second discovery- I thought I understood the meaning of this extraordinary plot in coming to tho hotel at Vltznau I had guessed long since that I bore a sufficiently striking resemblance to Sir Mortimer Brett to deceive at least the first cas ual glance Otherwise why the amazement of the Dretts and Madame de Varnlcr in first seeing moY How else could I explain the events of the night They had drugged me or at tempted to do do that I might be oblivious to Inconvenient Inquiries or greetings The hat and cloak of Sir Mortimer which Dr Starva had procured in some manner were unusual enough in character to be readily rec ognized by the servants of tho hotel Sir Mortimer was known to bo ill and my condition would arouse no sus picion All the facts as I swiftly reviewed them fitted neatly The Inference was unmistakableThis suite of Sir Mortimer Brett They had come for tho packet of papers they wore now reading Tho presence of Sir Mortimer Brett with them had gained them ready admis slog to ills rooms And now that they had found the papersHad I served my purpose Was the Invitation to Madame do Varnlers chateau a ruse cleverly planned sim ply to bring me to this hotel as Sir MortimerIn case I must be alert that they did not slip through my hands leaving me here in Sir Mortimer rooms to explain my predicament on the morrow as best I might t Or was this the prelude to other adventures even more exciting Was tho game only just begun Still I watched them intently while these perplexing questions demanded an answer They had finished the pa pers now Dr Starva was seated In sullen gloom Madame do Varnler elided to and fro in angry Indecision A loud knock on the door opening Into the han startled me almost as much as themselves Madame do Var olcr thrust the papers into the bosom of her dress then while Dr Starva at a sign from her answered the sum mons she hastily restored the room to outward signs of order What Is It Who is there Starva demanded iu an agitated voice It Is Ilenrf the concierge reviled the Intruder Tomorrow tomorrow But there Is an English gentleman who says that he must see his Excellency It would bo difficult to say whether thin startling request alarmed thorn snore than It did myself I listened ireatbless Dr Starvaa presence of Mind scented to have quito deserted aim He drew a revolver from his ockot Madame do Varnler made contemptuous sign expressive of 111 t bully Ho thrust it Into his coat againaI nwrr2 his expostulations to the clerge But pie man was persistent At last at a signal from Madame do Varnlcr ho was admitted to tho room The presence of Madame de Varnlcr startled him For the first time she spokeMy dear man be discreet Behold me a woman and at this hour of the night In a gentlemans apartment In not that a reason that you exercise your discretion- It Y was cleverly done her pertuba tlon and distraction She made her appeal dramatically her hands clasped In her anxiety Madam is mistaken If sho thinks I am not discreet protested the little man If it wero possible I would shield madam But he stands without in the ball this stubborn Englishman Madam can save her reputation only by retreating to tho bedroom Have no fear I shall not betray madam- It was time for mo to beat a hasty retreat But my curiosity still held me Havo I not told you fiercely In terrupted Dr Starva that it is not his Excellency who Is hero with madam It Is a Mr Haddon and madam la his nurse and I am his I yIphysician Tell this stubborn English man that Imbecile Monsieur will please be reasonable I cannot help using my eyes Use them yourself If you will des perately replied Starva But at least you need not tell this the truthIt is impossible to deceive him persisted the concierge All day ho has waiting for his Excellency A quarter of an hour ago ho was smoking In tho garden below He has seen the light shining through the shatters of his Excellencys apartment Ho knows that It Is the apartment of his ExcellencyYou htm that you have placed Mr Haddon In these rooms for the night only persuaded Dr Starva producing his pocketbook No monsieur replied the con clergo sorrowfully his eyes on the notes held toward him it is Impossi ble Ho will tell the manager and I shall lose my place Go to this Englishman Inter rupted Madame do Varnlcr demand his business Say that his Excellency Is ill very ill There have been days that he has not slept His physician and his nurse have grave fears for his life If ho is aroused To awaken him is perhaps to bring on again a crisis of tho nerves But as soon as ho awakes we will summon tho English manI go tho servant assented reluct antly Out it will bo useless- I dared not await tbo result of his errand I returned deliberately to my bed deliberately so that I might not lose my breath I was in a terrible predicament To rescue myself from it I must make known my true Identity without an Instants delay The knowledge that I certainly should not io believed made me hlsltnto No I bad gone too far to retreat now If my strait proved absolutely desperate Bad a confession was Inevitable I should bo believed as readily later as I now In the meantime chance might favor me and my ruso bo not wLplly In vain CHAPTER XIV The Kings Messenger- A minute passed and the bedroom door was again opened Madame do Varnler tad Dr Starva conversed In hurried whispers tho elcctrlo light shining full on my face I moved about restlessly but did not open my efes Presently tho woman seated herself at my bedside Dr Starve left the room tho door being slightly ajar- I could not resist tho to half my eyes Madame do Var nlcr was praying fervently regarding with passionate adoration a jeweled cross held before her eyes A peremptory knock at tho door of the drawing room opening on tho corridor put an abrupt end to these devotions which seemed to me so incongruous She clasped her hands sho listened rigid with anxiety It may be Imagined that I myself listened scarcely less anx ious It was tho concierge again Hero ia tho Englishmans card Ho says he is a kings messenger He brings Important dispatches lIe in slots that were his Excellency at the point of death ho must none tho less place these dispatches In his hands tonight Hut as his Excellencys physician I forbid It replied Dr Starvu with de terminationAnd the woman gliding to the door can you not make him understand how disagreeable It would bo for me to bo surprised In these rooms and that It would annoy Sir Mortimer beyond measurer- It Is useless madam have I not told him that ombarrassing circum stances make It Impossible that his Your Excellency Englishman been temptation open Excellency be officially recognized to nightAnd still ho Insists inquired Star va angrilyAs the stubborn English can Insist lie Is outside the door at this moment He has sent me to you not to ask permission but to announce his coming Ho refuses to go away until ho has seen his Excellency If tho door Is not opened in five minutes ho will call the manager of the hotel His name I am giving you his card Captain Reginald Forbes read Madame do Varnler Well we will admit this Captain Forbes- I listened to this dialogue with a trepidation that deprived me of power to think or act That fatal Indecision which on certainly one occasion had already brought its tragic penalty again seized me The crisis Impend ing might leave in Its wake consequences too grave to be thought of might leavo me a man disgraced and llablw to the extreme penaliy of tho law And yet I lay still in a night mare of indecision and Inaction It was tho same numbness of will that had paralyzed me on the Stralegg Pass Heaven grant that the consequences now be not as disastrous I heard tho click of a revolver Then Captain Forbes was admitted to the salonWhere is Sir Mortimer Brett he demanded harshly I must see him without further delay May I ask who you arcslrtThe of his Excellency replied Starva bowing He was no longer attempting to deny that I was Sir Mortimer Brett Sir Mortimer Is seriously ill I refuse to penult him to be disturbed I havo brought him here to Vltznau hoping that the old surroundings may induce him to steep It is a nervous disorder that has prostrated Sir Mortimer He has suffered terribly from Insomnia There are moments wtea ho re iliac Tt bring him sloop A was necessary tc give him an opiate you understand If ho Is awakened ho may be aaue at Lo may duay his very Identity Which Is his room Captain Forbes I forbid It It U impossible I warn you Madamo do Varnler opened the door of too bedroom quietly If the gentleman Insists on awax Ing Sir Mortimer wo are powerless sho said gently nut nt least let hits not be excited more than necessary sir I shall endeavor to follow your IU tructlons madam said Forbes stiffly He strode to my bedside I could Imagine with what breathless anxiety tho adventurers watched him Wat ho sufficiently Intimate wick Sir Mop timer Brett to denounce me Instantly as an Impostor Your Excellency I he said gently Your Excellency Tho Immediate danger of discovery was past At least ho had not de tented tho deception so far Ho called mo again ho shook my shoulder re spectfully I opened my eyes What Is It T I demanded bewildered I am horrified today when I think at tho faculty that was mine In playing this gamo of Intrigue I looked lan guidly from Captain Forbes to Madame de Varnlcr who land resumed her seat at the bedside The question was ad dressed to her Sho took my hand This Is Captain Forbes a kings messenger Ho has brought you dispatches of Impor tanceAh yes I said wearily and looked at him with dull eyes I am sorry to arouse you sir Contempt for tho man struggled with respect for his office Out my orders at the Foreign Office wero to glvo you these papers at tho earliest possible moment The business U urgent May I suggest that you read them at once My eyes unconsciously turned to Madamo do Varnler for guidance She stroked my hand gently Do you not see that ho Is in no condition to be disturbed tonight sho asked Indignantly For tho first time Captain Forbes hesitated He placed ono sunburned band on his breast as It to guard jealously the dispatches ho bore That he should hesitate at all seemed to me incredible But Captain Forbes seemed a fair example of that type of Englishman who performs his duty with tho stubbornness and obstinacy of a fool as well as a hero Chance often determines which of the two characters he shall assume It Is true ho had not tho remotest suspicion that I was not Sir Mortimer But surely ho must see that I was in the power ol these adventurers- All my fears reached a climax when looking steadily at rco a moment ho turned to the others I must speak to Sir Mortimer alone I saw Starva grasp tho revolver con cealed beneath his coat Madame de Varnler silenced the protests on his lips with a meaning glance She real ized tho uselessness of further resist anceYou will not exclto him more than necessary she entreated anxiously And you must not be suVprisod ta find his mind still confused as a result of the opiate given him I shall sparo him as far as poitt ble Forbes replied with some sternness Drawing himself erect his ami folded he waited until the door hat closed behind them My first Impulse was to put an erg to this farce But again 1 hesitated They wero listening outside tbALdooC every suspicion was alert tho slight est cause would fan the suspicion U a flame And then what I should hftvt made myself ridiculous to no purpoM I had gone tar in my reckless venturw too far to risk all by attempting ta warn Captain Forbes at this cracltj moment Iris brain worked too slowly ho was too deficient In imagination too much lacking In subtlety and finesse I refused recklessly If yon will but deliberately to risk the sue cess of my scheme by drumming into the dull brain of Captain Forbes the trim state of affairs It would have taken him a good quarter of an hour to grasp merely tho facts At that time hq would understand just enough of them to be stubbornly convinced that I was equally involved with the other two but he would think my nerve had failed mo and that I was attempting to purchase my own freedom from punishment at tho expense of tho otbers Apd certainly they would drag mo down with them II for no other purpose than revenge No this was not the hour for confl dances Captain Forbes was not thl JUan to be made a confidant at such an hour lie looked down at me with cold re spect Outwardly I met his steady look with something of fortitude and composure but beneath the clojhea my two banda were clenched rigid From a silk bag suspended about his neck ho produced two envelopes He weighed thorn In his hand a mo ment then ho placed the bulkier of the two in its silk case The other he held toward me The Foreign Office sir has Intrust ed to me two dispatches My orders are to placo thorn In your hands at the earliest opportunity Out one of thew dispatched I know to bo of great im portance I shall therefore keep It tot the present unless you demand It No no1 I muttered hoarsely 1

said It is tho djnty of all nations to acknowledge the prow hleuco of Almighty God to obey hIs will to bo grateful for his bcnoflta and humbly to Implore his protection and j favor In his second proclamation foi the next Thanksgiving which occurred on tho 10th of February 1703 ho used this phrase Sincere and hearty thanks to tho Great Ruler of nations for the nftinlfold and signal mercies which distinguish IIot n WILLSOJTS PUNS GovElect To Work for Fair Trials and Good RoadsGoes East to See President Tho statements as to his plans which have been made during the past week by Governoretect Willson show that the state Is in a fair way to have much better government than it has been accustomed to lIe has made few appointments yet wishing to take tlmo to pick tho right man for each place and he has only told of his policies as there has been reason to ask about them but everything he has said has gone to show that he will be an upright and fearless governor The most important subject that he has discussed has been that of the trials of the former state officials accused of trying to murder Goebol He says that he does not want to see Gov Taylor nor any of the other men until they return to the state that he will see that they will have protection and a fair trial but that all ho wants is to see justice done In the same way he has spoken about the Powers case Ho says very plainly that he wants only to see that POW- ers has a fair trial This attitude of the Governors is the right one tho some men who want him to pardon all tho accused men have been dissatisfied with It While almost all honest men In Ken tucky feel sure that tho men are in nocent and tho persecution of them has been unfair and unjust people In other states do not know this and if they aro pardoned will say that its for political reasons and will be lieve that the Republican party in this state was guilty of the murder Some men In this state will also think so and those pardons would stand against the party for many years Also the cases are In the courts no matter how unfairly and the right thing to do is to settle the dispute by tho law and let the men be cleared by the law and the courts so that there will never be any ques tion as to their innocence More over if the governor should override tho law and pardon the men he would help make the law contemptible and would do great harm to the state i Another thing that Coy WlllBon talked about was good roads Ho plans to do all that the state can afford for this and to build up a system that will be one of the best in this country He has already written to1 officials In Connecticut where the last legislature appropriated 600 000 for good roads to ask advice as to what methods it will be best to use In Kentucky Gov and Mrs Willson left Louis ville Sunday for a trip to the East so that Mr Willson can rest from the hard work of the campaign While he is in Washington ho will see the Pres dent and he will then return and write his message to the legislature Democrats and Republicans in Frankfort have joined to make the inauguration of Mr Willson one of the grandest ever held In this state They are going to give him a welcome Intended to make him feel that he is the accepted governor of Kentucky and all Kentuckians Another proof of tho good way things will bo run under the new administration Is the statement of Prof Crabbe that ho will keep his office that of superintendent of schools cut of politics To show this he will ap point one Democrat on the Board of Examiners This will help to make the schools good The chances of Mr Deckhams being elected to the Senate are getting to bo poorer and poorer They have become so bad that John K Hendricks Is now running against him and with tlItlSntlSfledjDCDJocrnts reason ti believe that Deckham will soon retire from politics All the bet ter clement of the party headed by MarseWnttcrson and The Courier Journal aro working to see that

of Boston Everywhere tho fusing and blending of the human race is retarded by social prejudices and conventions which prevent the freo and natural intenninglingof all human elements in proportion to degree of inter course and amount of opportunity Only recently Popo Pius has interpreted more stringently the churchly laws governing the marriage of Catholic and nonCatholic With Jews even more than with Catholics tho instinct of uolfprcservation of a group plainly in tho minority added to a dis tinctive zeal for their faith operates strongly against mixed marriages so that almost unanimously liberal anti orthodox Tews officially nt least are opposed to the existing tendency The mere refusal of most rabbis to officiate at such marriages will never prevent ono of them Whatever the future of such unions and however much the rabbi may be opposed to them whenever the mar riage is unalterably decided upon it would seem plainly wiser to give the parties the sympathy and sanctity of religion than to withhold those and thus to estrange still farther from the faith thoso daring souls who defy custom convention prejudice and possible ostracism in order to provo tho supremacy of love Are mixed marriages a failure Yes most likely But probably only a little more frequently than other marriages Who that knows tho situation will dare to say that from any ideal viewpoint marriage is conspicuous as the most social institution IIow many husbands and wives are boon companions comrades united in that eternal friendship which marriage at its best should be But thats another story Mixed marriage is dangerous between members of any group that have not learned to respect and love one another As all of onos environment enters into ones marital relation ship it is plain that for Jew and nonJew Catholic and Protestant and so on all along the line of surviving social antagonisms mixture of these groups in marriage would be bettor delayed until their mutual attitude has changed into permanent friendliness and their intercourse has become as natural with one another as it is among themselves That is the vanishing point of the problem of mixed marriage But until then all those who make this dangerous experiment simply import into their particular case another of the many factors which normally make successful marriage so difficult and rare an achievement For the Jew the problem of mixed marriages is complicated still fur ther by its plain application to his very existence as a separate social fact and the continuance of his religious career For him the increase of mixed marriage can mean only a slow suicide a reabsorption into the ocean of humanity the attainment of his Nirvana for which lie had hoped only on the day of tho completion of his mission when a united human brotherhood would acknowledge the universal fatherhood of a just and loving God I nrirtJ attii- t1 I ntart firthD- yALfRED SUTRO Dramatist In America tho smart set is imitating the Eng lishIt is rattler difficult to know what is the aim of the smart set anywhere I suppose they want to enjoy themselves Thoy must do something and that is the least tire some thing they can do They are not idle no you cant call them that they are just rich Personally to me the young man wile has nothing to do but shoot and ride and go in for athletics dont you know is not interesting lie articulates nothing he avoids thinking so viciously But society is not necessarily wicked It is worse than that I am afraid it is stupid 3Iy principal commandment is Thou shalt not be dull You cant always live up to it but at least cultivate tho idea as much as possible Society in America is not based on a peerage but upon a greed for power Money opens any door anywhere in the world Society with the biggest S is a society with the biggest purse Since the middle classes have become so rich in England there is really no objection to them There never ought to have been at any time I suppose but now that they can buy automobiles and carriages and town houses and shooting boxes and all that sort of thing they mingle with the smart set quite inoffen sivelySocial ambition is only another means to get rich Tho interesting difference between English society and American society is its complete reversal of incentive In England the man annihilates his past if he can by seeking a title that will excuse it in the eyes of the smart world In America there is no significance to anything but a fortune an elastic ever devouring instinct for power The millionaire must go on till he is a billionaire or be swept oil his feet Ho cant escape and ho has begun his struggle for power and of course in this tremendous fight for supremacy in business the human elements of his life become dwarfed yet threatening his peace of mind at any moment In the rush for power in the fearful absorption of tho millionaires struggle to keep on his feet he neglects his wife I have seen her typo in Paris She is alone she married excusably enough no doubt for ideals that all his money cannot supply He is not lacking in them nor did ho intend to avoid them but what time is there for love for liumnn consider ation in a great fight for power Well she is young pretty rich and alone She flirts a little per haps why not The American woman is the least of all dullards and she finds a painter or a singer or something or other who falls in love with her and she reciprocates Suddenly the big man in the midst of his many battles hears of it drops everything and he rushes to Paris But it is too latej Tho human problem confronts him and that is the crisis of American society The coda of hon or by which the husband and the wife perceive their dilemma is tho universal sexcode He accuses she lies he discoversand then and thenho either smashes things and creates a scandal or the affair fa the skeleton that chokes him into oblivion f a RIBBON REMNANTS THEY MAKE THE VERY DAINTI EST OF CHRISTMAS PRESENTS May Be Easily Fashioned Into Innu merable Pretty and Useful Article That Will Be Appreciated In all the wide range of Christmas present making there Is nothing that offers so many opportunities as the pretty piece ot ribbon found on the remnant counters of the stores They are comparatively Inexpensive and the Ingenious woman easily fashions from them many a dainty and at tructlro article ot personal adorn ment or home decoration that will bo all the more appreciated for tho rea son that It represents her work more than It does her pocketbook We give here suggestions for a number of pretty articles that may be made from ribbon of different colors and widthsIt far easier to contrive smart little knickknacks from tho wide rib bons than It la to turn to account thoso of narrower make This Is In great measure due to tho readiness with which they may be converted Into charming little bags for holding hand kerchief and purse or for work and other odds and ends One of the most uncommon models that requires only a yard of ribbon five and a halt to six Inches wide Is the double bag shown In the Illustration The bag from which our picture was taken was made ot nn exceedingly handsome ribbon of striped design Heliotrope white and black velvet bands were effectively combined A thinner kind ot ribbon such as a chine taffetas could well be chosen and might well bo sought out because it is generally to be had tn specially beautiful shadowy designs with plain colored stripes running down tho edges Our bag Is so solid tho rib A Double Dag bon being extra thick that when It II In use It Is firm enough to stand upright upon a table This adds greatly to Its general convenience To make the bag fold nine Inches of tho ribbon over at each end toward the center Tnko a needle threaded with silk to match tho edge color and sew the sides ot the ribbons together for n distance of six Inches and a half starting from the fold at each end There will ot course be four seams in all These make the two divisions i ot our double bag The few Inches of ribbon that are left freo must be fold ed In so as to form two hems each nearly two Inches and threequarters In length and having a half Inch wldo casing In each to hold the draw string of half inch ribbon of some suitable color These strings aro run through tbo casing In the ordinary way the headIng of tho bag being considered as if there wore nothing at all uncommon about It The rib i bon should be tied together at the ends Into a crisp bow which can beheld In place with a few stitches hidden away In the center Dolls aro often made to serve na I the foundation for a nccdlccaso or plnholder It Is by no means n bad plan tq buy one of these pin holders by way of a pattern and for a sate ot work to dress up SOY eral of them with ribbons of differ ent colors The dolls small cblna ones with long fair hair cau bo purchased for n few cents each For the outer part of the case half a yard of satin ribbon about two Inches wldo is required This should bo folded In halt and around hole cut in the center of the fold largo enough I for the dolls head to slip through two ends should be fringed out Ito the depth of halt nn Inch The under part of tho plnholder which does not show when tho whole thing Is hung up consists of a strip of thick I flannel both narrower and shorter than the ribbon It should bo eIther vandykcd at the edges or should bo buttonholingIfirst In the opening in the ribbon Take three yardr of threeeighths of an Inch white satin ribbon and put the length in three TIe one piece round the dolls waist to make a ash arranging part of tills as a loop by which the holder can be hung up Sow tho other two pieces In the center one on each side of the dolls ribbon dress in such a way that the edges are caught to Robber about two Inches below the 1J I waist At one sIde the ribbons may be nearer tho wnlst than on the other They must bo tied in bows with long loons A trimming of lace will hide imperfections round tho neck and very narrow soft ribbon may bo added In tho hair Fur using up odd lengths of ribbon about halt nn Inch wide there aro tow things more convenient than Is tho letter or cardholder A piece ot very firm cardboard is required for tho foundation It this Is not at hand pos sibly two thinner pieces aro to bo had They will answer as well It they aro firmly gummed together Any slzo and any shape may bo chosen Some workers may not care about tho straight form of tho model and ifs tills Is tho case they may cut the A Letter HolderIfoundation as a shield star triangle octagon or Indeed of almost any shape Serge Is a good material for tbo cov ering but If a thinner fabric only Is available It Is ns well to line It first wlht thin flannel or even with calico or something left over from the family dressmaking Tho narrow ribbons aro arranged In lattlcefaiblon as evenly I as possible across the front of tho holder after It haa been covered U will bo soon from tho illustration that tho bands aro BO arranged as to later lace and at every point at which they meet a brass paper fastener is run through them and to the wrong side of the board whore It Is secured In tho usual way As much trimming as tho worker pleases may bo added In the way of bows or rosettes of ribbons The absence of a sensible pocket la the skirt ofa fashionable dres Is a sore grievance with many people Rather than bo without n pocket they would bo pleased enough to have a costume of Iou modish cut bat such a thing Is beyond tho powers of a good dressmaker part ot whose hush nose It Is to run with the timer and to mako costumes as demanded by tbo fashion whether they are practical or not This Is apt to prows hardly upon mlddloagod and elderly ladle and they are obliged to resort

to bo answered In tho negative It Is too much fussing for the little gala derived from tho operation However there are exceptional coses when It Is not only desirable but In a small way profitable During the many years of my bee keeping conditions hove occasionally been such that I felt the desire to extract sections writes O 0 Grclner In Boo Culture but aa I thought It could not bo done without running too much risk ot breaking the combs from tho wood and besides not having any convenient rig to do tho Job In n sails factory way I havo never until lately Fig Z CombDasket Rack for Holding Sections In the Extractor made tho attempt I have always let my boos do tho extracting that Is any unfinished sections which I reserved for next seasons baitcombs I sot out fo tho bees to help themselves This Is an easy way to not thoso sections cleaned out but It has the disadvan tage that tho colonies that dont need nny feeding get It nil or nearly all while those that are sorely In need of stores get very little It any Wo may take if for granted that no bee keepor would even think ot OJE trartlng finished sections or even such unfinished sections as could be profit ably disposed of as chunk honey or used otherwise to advantage But some seasons produce a certain kind of unfinished sections that seemed to bo made for the extractor According to the peculiarities of different sea sons honeyflows wo have two distinct typos of unfinished sections Ono kind U partly built out some not larger than tho Inlido of a band but all drawn out filled with honey and every toll capped over while tho other Is all built and drawn out filled moro or less with honey but little If any capped Tho past season produced In this locality with tho exception of very little finished honey whoro halt combs had been supplied the latter kindDuring the five days ot whltoclovcr honeyflow lasting from the 2Cth until tho 30th of June honey was gathered in such quantities that tho comb builders had all they could do to furnish storage for the Incoming nectar and when tho combs wero built and drawn out they wore also filled with honey and about ready to bo capped Just then the honeyflow ceased and BO complete was tho following failure tint not tho least progress was made In sections for tho remainder of the season although enough was gathered most of tho time for boos la llvb on nnd to store a little In the brood cham ber This explain why tho largest share of our crop consisted of just such unfinished sections as could bo oxtracted with very little trouble 1and as extracted honey was so very scarce tho litho that thoso sections conlalnod looked big In my eyes which induced rao to try the extractor Aa I said before I had no convent ent way to extract sections but being anxious to try the experiment a few minutes work solved tho problem Tho accompanying drawing Fig 1 represents a little adjustable shelf that Is suspended by wlro hooks into tho upper part of tho extractorbasket as shown at Fig 2 It U made ot half inch lumber and fits loosely into tho comb basket Tho dotted line show tho position ot tho Vires on tho under side of tho shelf where they are fastened by two little staples clinched above Tho shelf should not bo hung too low If tho sections project above the basket enough for a hold It will mako lt all tho more convenient It we use the precaution of reversing tho basket ivico or in other words If wo reverse the basket after part of the contents Is thrown out from one aide by moderate speed before trying to mako a clean sweep It Is almost Im possible to detach tho combs from tho wood or even bend them out of ahapo It they aro reasonably fastened to the sides Use WhitewashLlherally Whitewashing poultry houses two or three times a year with a little car bone

not attended with magnificence Tho original build logs were not line examples of poultry architecture Tho owners did not deem them fit to Illustrate their first annual catalogues nut these plants hare developed into our now successful poultry farms In the yards of many a fancier with a national reputation ono can find houses ot a type that havo never been portrayed In our journals as admirable They are fro quontly made overs from some un used building or some old pieces of scrap lumber thrown together and mado habitable by tho use of tar paper and rags Yet these houses sufficed to shelter tho fowls placed therein and what tho breeder lacked In comfortable quarters bo mado up In painstaking care As tlmo passed and profit was mddo many ot these houses havo been abandoned or reconstructed but some aro loft and on almost every poultry farm are still In use standing as a proof that ex pensive houses and fixtures are not requisites of a good beginning in sultry culture Nowhere do wo find as up to date well constructed oven elegant poultry houses as on the abandoned plant whorl money was apparently not lacking when tho original buildings wero erected Poultry houses aro BO frequently portrayed with elaborate descriptions of tho roosts nesting boxes feed troughs grit and beef scrap recept soles that ono may forget that a house Is only so much room enclosed within tight walls merely so much space protected from tho elements says tho Northwestern Agriculturist Economy Is usually associated In our minds with Inconvenience The person desiring to build cheap poultry houses must expect to do without poultry houso luxuries Our best styles of houses consider tho comfort of both tho fowls and attendants but our cheap houses consider only that of tho fowls and leave that of tho at tendant to take care of Itself AH this Is not Intended to argue that poor houses aro superior to good ones but is offered to show that be ginning need not bo elegant or oven apparently auspicious

Is still more strong that to tho rollcall of homes of the faith In the eleventh chapter of He brows Samson should bo named with Abraham Gideon nnd David among thoso who through faith subdued kingdoms wrought righteousness ob tamed promises stopped the mouths of lions SamsoN and His Characteristics 1 The name Samson Is derived from tho Hebrew word for sun and means sunny or sun lloro Ho was born at Zorah In the more southern of tho two Bcttlemcnts of the trlbo or Dan on tho borders of Judah 14 miles west of Jerusalem Ills fathers name was Manoah 2 Even before his birth his mls elon was announcod He was to bfl ono who should begin to save Israel out ot the hand of the Philistines and to this end was to bo consecrated to God Judges 13 It Is a groat thing for any person to bo so endowed and so trained as to have a definite mission In this world Only partially did Samson fulfill his Ideal but tho presence ot It Influenced his whole life 3 Tho consecration of Samson was through tho Nnzlrito vow which required Num 6 2C total abstinence from grapes wino and all Intoxicat ing liquors that tho hair should go uncut and that nil contamination with dead bodies bo avoided It was usually a temporary vow but Samson and John tho Baptist wero perpetual Nazlrltos Tho moaning of the vow was probably entire consecration to GodIt Is to bo noted that according to tho record Samson with all his oth er fallings yet kept sacred tho con ditions of this vow On tho keeping of tho vow his strength and prowess depended 4 The first and most effective of the endowments of Samson for his mission was his great strength which In general ho used to deliver his nation from the power of tho op pressor although not always In tho wisest way G A second special endowment of Samson was his sense of humor his Impulsive practical joking puns and riddles Theso were an advantage to him even In his efforts to overcome tho Philistine oppressors G He was a born fighter He knew his strength and loved to use It Nothing stirred him like the Joy of a battle unless Indeed the sweet rewards of victory Its spoils And pleasures Such men commonly de generate Into mercenary brutes fight ing here and there on whichever aide Inclination may be strongest or put sonnl advantage greatest llev ba- S Dodd But It was not so In tho case of Samson 7 Ills weakness was very great Ills spiritual nature was not highly developed Ho was not a leader or organizer of men He did his work alone and not by massing the nation against the oppressor Ho was infected with the looso morals of his heath en neighbors These wero n hind ranco to his mission and brought him to blindness slavery and an untimely deaths nut In the main ho was firmly on tho sldo of Gods people and the fulfillment ot his mission Ho never broke his Nafclrito vows Ho was a total abstinence man to tho end To appreciate tho faith of Samson It Is necessary to understand tho tempta tions and difficulties In taco of which tho performed his task If Samson had cared only for the sats faction ot his course and selfish Im pulses the road to that Infamous fame would have been wide open Dut read his story You will see that he always fought on ono

teacher does not flag the pupils are not likely to lose Interest But let the spirit of the teacher droop for an Instant and the whop school catches It It he stretches J the school yawns It Is not so mud a question of how to keep the school Interested as how to keep ones own interest from waning We all need spurring up occasion ally No matter how mettlesome your steed is if you keep him going at a good strong gait for many days he will finally begin to lag and wit have to be touched up Who shall spur the district school teacher when he begins to lag There Is no principal to keep an eye on him as In the case of the city school teacher The County Superintendent with his one visit a year is too remote we car take many a nap without his catching us The school directors pay little if any attention and would hardly dare prod us If they knew we needed It Our patrons will not spur us Evi dently we must urge ourselves on Whatever spurring we get must be selfinflicted The attention is called to a list of spurs Spur one count the days The Psalmist said So teach us to num ber our days that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom At the begin ning of the term we make our plans as largo as possible and as the days go by we shall find the time all too short to accomplish what we desire Also as we become acquainted with our pupils we discover their needs and add to our original plans Wo need now every single day used to the utmost In order to do the work that is pressing to be done It our term is six months we have one hun dred and twenty days As one after i another slips away we should count the remaining ones jealously and part with each one as reluctantly as a mis er from his dollars Spur two measure what remains by what has been done In reviewing the past we can see that many dim culties were encountered that had not been foreseen Various unexpected hindrances impeded our progress We may count upon It that such will bs the case to the end A certain man was adjudged insane because he supposed ho could build a house for what the contarctors told him it would cost So we must measure the future not by what wa can see but by the experi ences of the past Doing this we shall readily see that wo have no i4time to waste for the sake of my pupils I must not relax my vigilance They must take me as their pattern I am r their example I cannot expect them to do more than they see me doing It I urge them to be diligent I must be diligent If I would have them In crease their interest I must not lose mine This should be a very keen and effective spur Fourthduty to ethers I owe it to a my parents who love me to my teach ers who instructed me to those who recommended me to the directors who employed me to my patrons who have entrusted their children to my care to my country and to my Mak er to put forth my best efforts to dis charge my duties faithfully from the first day to the last Nothing less t than wholehearted service will re lieve me of ray obligations to all these + Fifth duty to self Lastly I cannot afford to taU Into loose ways for the sake of ease or relief from dally bur 1 dens It I allow myself to become careless It will greatly injure my chances of success Work slighted one day will be more easily slighted y Continued NeJ a When we see our neighbor returning with a tine horse the first that comes to our minds is did It cost We learn that paid was 200 We next ask Is he worth 117 Perhaps is at least we hope so The point that we wantto get is that an ener getic man always wants to count the cost and compare it with the real ue we do this on the farm When you raise a crop of corn do you ure the real cost and compare It with the real value of tho corn pro duced there Is the cow that you have been milking the last year J tho next and soon tho habit will be I formed and my usefulness will be practically ruined By such spurs as these the teacher must keep himself up to best ct forts 2 KEEPING A BRAVE FRONT It Is never wise to reveal discouragement or disappointment Many a genera has saved himself from crushing de feat by a good showing in front Disappointments and discouragements are certain to come but we need not brood over them nor talk about them Some teachers lie awake nights worrying over their difficulties It doei no good whatever but much harm be cause it robs one of greatly needed rest and so Unfits him for next days duties plan than worrying Is at ter the work of the day is over to review it carefully passing honest judgment upon every act and taking the full share of blame where thlngi went wrong We should not hesitate to acknowledge to ourselves our mis takes end shoulder whatever blame attaches to them Having acknowl edged them we will avoid like ones In the future If wo do not thus reflect upon our experiences and deal honestly with ourselves we shall not profit by them If there are any dif ficult matters pending we should think them over carefully and decide upon a course of action Having thus done we may dismiss tho whole mat ter and sleep soundly This will give us new courage and new strength to go forward next day Ordinarily when some one asks us how we are getting on he does not expect us to pour a tale of woe Into ears His question was a lnere commonplace greeting like howdo youdo and only requires such an an swer as very well or soso People are always ready to listen lo something bright and cheering but they do not care to hear walls and complaints As the old saying is they have troubles enough of their Particularly must we not complain to some gossipy listener of any of our patrons even tho we may think they have treated us badly It there Is any such difference we should go to them ourselves and straighten It out if pos will it pay if we have rei cllious or unruly pupil to discuss hem with the neighbors If we need idvlce we should not hesitate to ask It of some wise person who has had more experience than we and who will tot take advantage of our confidence to do us hurt Or It matters are unendurable we may go to the directors and lay our troubles before them Its their duty to take such action as is necessary for the protection of the eacher and of the school While extreme cases of discipline that require the assistance of the loard are not common they do sometimes happen and are most likely to recur to young teachers to whom his word of advice will be valuable It we should not reveal our troubles to the world It Is equally Important that we preserve a brave front tefore our school Any weakening on our part will be quickly observed our pupils and they will be quick to ake advantage of it Some sorely tried teachers have been known to bed tears before the school Instead at arousing sympathy as for one in llstreso it has generally brought contempt for supposed weakness Clear grit la much more effective than tears Finally a teachers estimate of his work will be taken largely by others If he counts himself a failure he will be so considered It he looks ipon his work as a success most people are willing to let It go at that Two things ho should avoid boasting of achievements or deprecating his eeble efforts Do your best keep a

and produced 12 worth or pro ducts not to mention labor Such is the case on many of our Kentucky farms and yet we seem to be satls tied Nino cows out of ten through out the United States are kept at an actual loss IWhat is the cause There are sev the greatest of all is the failure of our farmers to count the cost The fact Is we really dont know which of our cows are making money and if we do we

required 1120 of the average cows to make as much clear money as the 12 cows made in one of the industrlou farmers herds Three Important rules should be kept in mind in the raising oC cattle 1 Select only the very best stock 2 Learn the quality and quantity of feed that gives the best results 3 Great care should be taken ns to regularity in feeding milking etc Do not be satisfied until ou have the very best grade of stock for you section It you are in tho beef bust ness Keep only beef types If you want milk and butter for the home keep a dairy grade that doe not fatten up when you feed for ex
