men whoso homes happened to be near enough the tobacco houses to catch from them One man who thought his horse was being burned up In a stable was shot when ho went to look after It and another who looked out to BCD what was up was shot in tho face There was ono other man shot Thero was no fear of another raid at Russolvlllo for there was nothing else to burn so tho governor did not order any

WHY SOME MEN ARE POOR There are a good many poor men everywhere and in these parts there are more than usual Partly this is because of poor land and bad roads but in a goodmany cases the man would be less poor if he went at things a little differently This editorial is for that man the one that has a chanceto get better off just by helping him self Money simply stands for so much work A dollar means that some one has done a days work and it will buy a days work from some onb else When a man makes more than a dollar a day it is because he can use his head but it comes from work all the same So if a man is well off it means that he has got that muchwork done and laid that he can use when he needs it And every days work a man docs makes him just that much richer Another thing days a man docs not work leave him behind He eats up part of what hes earned before mighthavedollar There arc lots of men that cant afford to buy shoes for their children this winter that have wasted a good many dollars sitting still In lots of places where the land is good and crops are better men work all day six days a week and that counts for almost as much as the good soil Threis not always a chance to earn money but there is always a chance to make wealth A days work fixing up a house or stable make the owner that much richer even if he hasnt got a cent more and it willshow up in cash sometime And ifevcrrman watched his minutes as carefully as he the mountains would be a lot richer soon Try it if you are a poor man POWERS KEPT IN JAIL Judge RefusesBa11Tho Only Two Out of Twelve Jurors Voted for

Judge that ten were for acquittal and only two for conviction and It wn learned later that one of those two offered to chango over If tho other would So practically there was only ono out of twelve that though the evidence strong enough to con vlct After the Jury was discharge tho ten men crowded around Powers shaking his hands and wishing him good luck and two were so affected that tears streamed down their faces Every fair minded man who had watched tho trial expected that after the disagreement tho Judge would admit Powers to ball as was done with Judge Hargis and Ed Callahan In II similar case but ho refused to do so Powers lawyers then moved that th now trial bo sot for hearing In te days but tho court set It for July 6 So unless sorno higher Judgo Inter feces Powers must stay In Jail that much longer This Is tho close ot tho fourth trial of Powers and his case is already ono ot tho most celebrated In the world Tho whole state ot Kentucky Is on trial as well ns Powers and has yet to be proven that a man can get Justice from his political rival hero Tho rest of tho world believes that there has been nothing else that n political persecution carried 01 against Powers It will take n fair trial and fair treatment Uhlm in ov cry way to finally restore the states good name A movement has been thru out tho state for a pardon for PvoV ers His lawyers have petitioned the governor and many other people have Joined with them The governor say that ho cannot give any attention to a subject so Important while the legislature is in session This will mako It so lato before a

thing chilld but it is a better thing for tho man with property whether ho has children to educate or net This Is true because taxation for education insures ultimately firstclass schools and It is the history of good schools that they cause a direct increase ot front 25 to CO percent In tho valu6 of property and a greater Increase In the intelligence ot the citizens of a community while crimp and poverty l are lessened This statement can be verified by those who caro to inves tigate for themselves I The people ot all communities are I taxed to build Jails and court houses and to prosecute criminals and yet there is hardly ever a word of com plaint but when a small tax for edu cation the greatest crime reducer the world has over known is pro posed some people are opposed to it Willing

tell you Your plea of cowardice is a convenient subterfuges Every fact polnta to your being In league with these adven turers A coward wouldnt have taken the risks you have taken You saw the man hiding In the stairway you saw him about to fire on a helpless girl and you raised no band Am I talking plainly enought- I looked into Lockos eyes glaring with rage and contempt and I laughed aloud It was actually a relief to bav my weakness exalted to the plane of deliberate villainy Laugh my friend but I am not to be deceived by a laugh And now that I stand abased in my naked deviltry I gtvo you five minutes to make a lull and complete confession If at the end of five minutes you still re fuse I shall have you promptly arrest ed for being a partner in tho Intrigues of tho Countess Sarahoff for masquerading as Sir Mortimer Brett and for being an accomplice In the murder of Miss Brett Five minutes The time was not long I know Locke would keep his word but more than ever I was stub bornly resolved to refuse taking him Into my confidence Could I toll him my reasons for act tag asT had done Could I tell him that I had set out on the romantic quest of saving a life for the life that had been lost Would ho believe that At least without Appealing to the wom an who bad set me that task To drag In her namo was Impossible The minutes passed swiftly So this was tho end of my task Disgrace And imprisonment I bad warned llelena that might be the case I looked across the valley at the pin nacles of the Castle of Happiness What a fool I have been Your time Is almost up said Locke grimly looking at the watch ho had placed on his knee And Miss Brett Is walking in the garden over there Do you wish her to see you marched off to prison t- On the contrary it was she who must sot me free I I would put her to the supreme test Now if sho trusted me as oho had promised I might yet escape from the awkward dilemma- I roso to my feet 1 called to her Miss BrettV 4 She came to us My maneuver so completely astonished Locke that hi stared at me speechless Miss Brett I said quietly Mr Locko has taken upon himself the task of bringing mo to justice Ho finds mo guilty ot complicity in the intrigues at Madame do Varnler He refuses to believe that I am acting In your behalf I cannot blame him for this Busplraons The facts are almost wholly against metha surface facts I do not oven deny most of them But ho mis woefully misconstrued my mo tapes in every case I refuse absolute ly to ten him what those motives are He has threatened me with arrest un loss 1 make to him a full and completo confession without delay Mr Locke as I have said Is acting on the behalf of your mother and yourself Personally ho has no right whatever to make any complaint against me Miss Brett will be the last person to shield you from punishment when she knows the truth Interrupted Locke bewildered at my audacity In to heraping other things Miss Brett I continued eagerly ho accuses me of bQingan accomplice in your attempted murder In the stairway There are facts more tangible than that saId Locke significantly Bust I refute to listen to them said Helena reassuring mo with a quiet glance I am not so ignorant or thoso facts perhaps as you imag ine Mr Locke I have every confi dence In you Mr Haddon As to caus tag your arrest that Is absurd Thank you I returned with a pas sloa ot gratitude In my heart You will tear from mo before midnight If at the end of that time you do not I think It would be well for you to eon 4mlt Mr Locke Ho knows a great deal of which you are Ignorant Bo sure of this sir I shall not wait until midnight to enlighten Miss Brett creed Locke hie taco purple with anger and chagrin Mr Locke let us understand each other said Helena and even Locko felt that her decision was irrevocable Mr Haddon is my friend I refuse to bellovo him guilty of dishonor much lead of deliberate crime I refuse and ay mother will refuse to press any charge against him More than that we trust him to help us In our dit Bcnitfcs Locko closed the face of his watch with a snap If you have como to that decision tie said with assumed carelessness there is nothing more to be said If I can be of service fo you you will fund mo at the hotel at midnight as the chivalrous Mr Haddon has sug T tested We were alone But Helena was of BO mind to receive my thanks or my uurasces that I had been absolutely y r- a yy t t ignorant that Locke or any other had been in tho stairway Until 13 tonight sho said Until 12 tonight I repeated I lifted my hat and walked swiftly toward tho chateau CHAPTER XXII The Secret Staircase We trust him to help us In our dif ficulties Thoso were the words Helena had spoken sho trusted me who had been called coward to accomplish what the cleverest and bravest man must have hesitated at promising For ono can not promise with reason to attempt successfully tho unknown It was the vagueness of my mission that made it so perplexing One cannot tear apart lover from lover as one tears a piece of paper And yet if Sir Mortimer were living und still enamored of his mistress I had promised to attempt oven that If on tho other hand Sir Mortimer were dead I was to essay a duty even more Hcult to rescue his great namo from dishonor Before midnight then there were two things to bo accomplished I must know tho truth from Madame do Varnler concerning Sir Mortimer Brett whether he were living or dead I must rescue Captain Forbes It was to be a doublo duel The first w Twelve to be fought was Madame da Varnler tho weapons to bo of her choosing cunning and wit tho second Dr Star va and ho had already shown mo what weapons ho To arm myself for my fight with him I supposed would bo a simple matter But when I made inquiries for a gun smiths shop I learned to my dismay that there was none in Alterhoffen I was compelled to return to the cha teau empty handed The terrace was deserted I crossed it close to tho castle walls I intend ed if possible to enter tho hall unob served by the little uuder the winding staircase through which I had followed Dr Starva I looked eau tiously Into the great room through one of tho mullioned windows No ono wat about Onco within the cha and tho door locked J gained my room and rang the bell for tho servant Jacques tho lackey who had shown me to my room the night be fore answered the call It Is half past one I cried impa tlently Is Madame de Varnler not ready for luncheon Tho man looked his surprise Luncheon has been waiting for your Excellency I came tn your room some tlmo ago but there was no an swer when I knocked I had been wandarrfng about tho chateau I replied carelessly So luncheon Is ready I hopo I have not kept Madame de Varnler waiting too begs to be excused Luncheon is served for Dr Starva and your set I followed the sum to the room inhere ITS had dined r tat all pleased at tho seclusion that she affected I was Impatient for action Nearly 12 bourn wero to elapse before mltelgat hut there was much to be done before then And If she persisted in not see Ing me I wondered how I was to force my presencO on her In tho meanwhile I must attempt to learn something of Captain Forbess deten tlon I lunched alone and well The ab sence of Dr Starva was only to be expected Even so brazen a villain as he would hesitate to meet me with un concern During tho struggle In tho porters lodgo no word had been spoken by either of us but certainly he could not havo been Ignorant of my identity any moro than was I of his When we again met therefore it would bo as avowed enemies Frankly I did not forward to that meeting with pleasure Tho fate of Captain Forbes pointed too obvious a moral I had put myself deliberately In Starvas power by my return to the chateau If I were unmolested It would be because my services were indis pensableI lighted my cigarette Jacques was noiselessly gathering up the things I had determined to take him into my confidence I believed it was he who had brought mo the note I that ho was not Ignorant of my leaving tho chateau He had accepted my excuse too readily At any rate I believed tho fellow could bo bribed I demanded carelessly And Dr Starva T Is he too con Lned to his room Tho man shrugged his shoulders Evidently ho held Dr Starva In no great consideration One knows nothing of him He ts mysterious this Dr Starva I looked at tho man keenly The adjective was significant Everything about this chateau Is mysterious it seems to me I remarked cheerfully Last night for Instance I could have sworn I beard the shout of ono in distress la it possible monsieur And when I retired I found a note on my pillow I would give a hundred francs to the man who placed It there If I could find him IUntil ToNight She Said preferred door teau longMadam look suspected bydtacoveredlency ho said softly his crafty eyes cast down So you were the faithful messen lndImadam would not object Ho smiled greedily on tho notes that I had laid on tho table Ah you are loyal to Madame de Varnier Very loyal monsieur he returned with perfect seriousness- I intended to test this admirable loyalty I was forgetting Captain Forbes I proceeded cautiously Am I the only guest of tho cha teau I demanded toying with the notes Excelleac And bo is a man of mystery you tell me I suppose It not impossible that he has his friends Friendsl he asked aad he gave to the word a strange note of uncer talnty Did not one call on him last night just before I retired 1 I have understood BO And ho has como to the chateau aa Dr Starvas own guest Certainly Dr Starvas friends have visited him hero occasionally The chateau ts so immense that one would find it difficult to bo sure that ono knew the whereabouts of all its rooms If I might take tho liberty should say that your Excellency would beta terested in making an Inspection of the chateau The view from tho tow ersis superb And these towers are rwdKy ac peuible7M i0- ns Jacques shook his head Monsiani has said that tho chateau is Immense Ono might find It difficult without a guideAnd you will be that guide I said with Assurance Ho shook his head still moro vigor ously Impossible Madam Mould object Besides there is Alphonse Alphonse Who Is het Ho is madams confidential len ant At least you can tell me tho way to tho towers- I have never been to tho towers the man persisted Then tho staircase Is concealed 1 asked sharply irritated at his hy pocrlsy I have seen tho tapestry near the gallery move very strangely h blurted out- Captain Forbes then was Imprisoned In one of the torcrs Tho staircase leading thither wan concealed be hind a secret door hidden by a tapestry This door was near the gallery So far so well But I remembered that there was ono central tows flanked by three smaller towers In which of them was Captain Fortw held a prisoner I came to tho point directly To fence with the follow was wasting time The rooms in the towers thorn selves must bo interesting In medieval times they wore no doubt used as dungeons If there can bo dungeons In tho air In which of these towers docs Dr Starva usually lodgo his friendsI 1 the question not without trepidation I was tolerably suro ol my man but for tho moment I feared that I had overshot tho mark He poised a tray on his palm and shuttled hastily to the door as it ho were frightened at tho information ho bad already given You have forgotten something l said carelessly and tapped the notes on tho table Ho hesitated then re turning snatched at them When ono has ascended the secret stairway ho said in a low voice one finds oneself In a bare room That li the centra tower It is a triangle li shape At tho corners of the trlangli there are three doors opening on three smaller rooms the dungeons as mon slcur calls them One of these room is the oratory of madam Monsleui knows that madam Is very religious When madam is not to be seen she ix at her prayers Again ho seized his tray bnt I had Htlll another question to ask Which of these rooms Is the ora tory And In which does Dr Starvi lodgo his friends nut monsieur I do not know he stammered and again seized his tray You know very well If you think I commanded Ho rubbed his nose a gesture cart ously reflective and agitated Hi turned himself about like a top as hi tried or pretended to try to rcmcai her toward which points of the cum pass tho various rooms faced Monsieur knows that tho chnttat itself does not face either south north east or west The oratory is to the south No it points to the west Thi locked room Dr Starvas that Is to the cast But no truly your Excel lency It is Impossible for me to te member Ho fled from the room toe dlVci on his tray rattling In his pertuiba tlon But he had told mo much I know that If I could find tho secret staircase to the towers if I could forco open the door behind tho tapestry I might bag both my birds with ono shot Captain Forbes In his prison 01 Madamo do Vnrnler at her prayers it was all one to me- CHAPTER XXIII A Terrifying Apparition- I did not hesitate There was n1 time like tbo present This servant had been falso to Madamo do Varnier false to Dr Starva lie would betray mo with as little compunction If V wero mado worth his while- I walked slowly up tho grand stairway leading from the hall I gained the gallery that ran about the hall meeting no ono I pretended to bo In tcrestcd in examining the designs of the tapestry I tapped the wall as moved deliberately along Its emet tomo quito solid in every direction 1 began to think that Jacques bad bees playjngwlth mo- A I stood there hesItatlngAlphonse tho confidential servant of Madame de Varnler appeared suddenly before me Either his tread had Men catlike w ho secret staircase was very near I thought I read consternation 01 his

western Irrlgat ed states The offlco of experiment stations notes an experiment on three pair of Perchortm horses which wore ted light and heavy oats Tho practical results of this export ment seem to Indicate that pound for pound the light oats havo nearly the name feeding value as tho heavy oats Although tho heavy oats contain a higher percentage of protein and carbohydrates and n less percentage of fiber than tho light oats It seems prob able that tho relative proportions of these constituents are such that they are more easily and thoroughly dl gusted It should be remembered that al though tho two grades are practically equal pound for pound they are not equal quart for quart and that In feed ing by measure as Is usual allowance should be made for heavy oats and a less portion given Slnco oats ato bought and sold by weight Instead of measure there seems to be no gain made In buying the heavy oats at an advanced price over the light oats- COVERED SALT BOX This One Keeps Salt Dry

the world wo sing a scripture reading by Dr Thomson and prayer by the Rev Howard Hud son The pastors report showed that a good year had been passed and At the same time asked for greater spiritual

reportedas saying that the tendency to crime still exists Our penal system only hurts and never helps its victims direct or in direct whether they are innocent or guilty It deters some from committing crime and makes hypocrites of more and it wholly ignores economic or social causes for crime and makes no allowance for personality 11 is a failure because it is founded in fear and hatred and cruelty and cowardice It mercilessly grinds the poor and the weak in the interest of the strong It proceeds from and dwells on the bad in man not the good11c shall have a system that will do good only when

By DR W B NORTH- St Loul Cod has very gracious ly bcstowetl upon ns an inestimable gift in the charming life of Jesus who lived in insignificant despised Nazareth of Galilee in very limitel circumstances that hu might demonstrate be fore the eyes of men the glorious principles of tho Christian religion That we may recognize admire and adopt this exceedingly beau tiful example as our model St Luke has presented in the text for our prayerful consideration and careful emulation five elements of Gods ideal of human life viz FirstFilialobedience Jesus of Nazareth was subject unto his parents Joseph and Mary and thus from the very divinityyf his nature he has furnished the world the most marvelous n filial obe dience conceivable God has planted in every human heart a reverential feeling toward those to whom we owe ourlives in consequence of birth and the preser vation of our natural lives Second Growth in wisdom Jesus advanced in wisdom The an thorities tell us that wisdom is the quality of being wise knowledge and the capacity to make due use of it the use of the best means for the accomplishment of the greatest good It is a lamentable fact that a great part of the lives of the great majority of the young people of today are spent in follnnd frivolity and multiplied thousands that are building their hopes of happiness for this life and heaven in eternity arc building on foundations of sand 40 Third Physical development Jesus advanced in stature lie cum pliedwith the conditions of physical growth and grew up to be a per fect man t A child properly placed living in harmony with divine law appropriating his privileges of development as the lilies of the field appropriate the sunshine ruin dewdrops gases of the atmosphere and fer tility of the soil converting them into beauty and fragrance will never fail to increase in stature- FourthDevelopment of character And Jesus advanced in favor with God Dr Wheeden appropriately remarked that though the entire be ing of Jesus was in favor of God yet as that being increased in amount the amount of favor increased proportionately Fifth Growth in reputation And Jesus advanced in favor with men His reputation was what others thought of him Even the rude and rugged Highlanders of Nazareth and the regions roundabout were constrained to feel softened toward him in consequence of his genial nature and lovely disposition He let his divine light shine nnd men saw his good works and were convinced that lever man spuke like the young Nazarene and that no character within their knowledge approxi mated the charming character of the unassuming swtiet4piritcd son of Mary The common people heard him gladly wl1t Wnmrn Art Not 10 2Hattu ly RIGHT REV DANIEL S TunuIBlitit tl Eatton Wotm ol I do not believe that the modern woman is to blame for the breaking up of homes by recourse to the divorce court A modern woman is all right if she possesses the right spirit That is what differenceImay be attributed in large part to hasty and thoughtless acceptance of the marriage vow and the lack of patience and forbearance on the part of both parties in these exacting and nervous days The evil is I believe exaggerated by inadequate legislation and the consequent ease with which divorces arc granted However I do not think it is possible owing to the varying sentiments of respective localities and tales

Intelligence and HclcntlOo knowledge tit tho dean ot tho local black bear And when Tom Wil son came to look for tho remains of his pet ho found that nothing but n patient Rcarch over this and tho sur rounding counties could collect enough for a decent burial Tom captured the grizzly out west when It was a cub and had trained It to hunt fur him Whuit tho bear war nearly full grown tie brought him east end turned him loose on the Innocent bull and wildcats of this county Tho grizzly had boon trained so that ho wouldnt oat anything but cooked meat While active ho w ont an specially Intelligent bear and not being ahlo to cook hits own food ho would turn the proceeds of his hunt ing expeditions In to Tom Wilson iJ Tom would deduct a liberal share fur Local The DUck Bears Give Him the Glad Hand tho benefit of the person ho described M honest Tom Wilson Tho rust ho cooked and gavo to tho grizzly Of aurin Torn Got all tho furs and Jho Kama was as good as A gold mine to him remonstrated with him on the wickedness of It- Tho next day while I was walking through tho wrists I heard something come tearing through the underbrush Not winning to imperil a valuable life I IniHtlrtl to one side and awaited do vtlopmentiC In a minute a black bear broke through After him CAme Tom vyilwuif grizzly The grizzly was the r sprinter and n moment more a funeral would hive been all that was coming to tho black beAr Hut just In time ho struck a treo big enough to bear his weight Up It ho scrambled The grizzly couldnt climb so ho stayed at the foot and growled H Unless 1 am mistaken In the char actor of that venerable bear I sold to myself swift bumps and painful ex perience will teach Mr Grizzly to re erot ho meddled with him That afternoon I went out Into the lot back of my house to blow up sonic stumps with nitroglycerin I had tho glycerine in a can nnd as I had use for It would pour out a little Into a small Ivan I had been nt work only a few minutes when I looked up and there was that same black bear watch lag mo with nn expression of tho mot Intent Interest Ho had evidently stayed up In tho tree until tho grizzly had grown tired nnd then had como down with revenge In his heart I knew that kindly old blaclf bear wouldnt harm rue 101 went on blow U ing up Hturapfl without paying any par ticular attention to him Pretty soon the boar wandered over to the can of nitroglycerin He sniffed nt It Then ho took a tasto NltroplJcorln han a sort or sweet tnelo but 1 was surprised at tho look of joy which spread over that bears Intelligent countenance You had bettor leave that stuff alone I warded him Nltroglyccrln Isnt tho proper health food for black bears It you should swallow sonic of It and then happened to stumble or jar yourself your honorable career would be brought to a sudden and ex pannlvo finish Mnybo that worthy old bear didnt understand every word I said but ho certainly gathered In my meaning Ills heart was sot on having that nitro glycerin however evch If he didnt Intend to use It hlmsnlf Hut he was a moral bear a bear of good prin cipled ROIl ho felt It wouldnt ho tight to take my glycerin without giving mo something In return Ho gave ono moro longing look at tho explosive and then piked off to the woods aw teat as ho could go At first I was considerably puzzled to account for the action of that black bear Ho certainly knew too much to eat the nitroglycerIn and I couldnt think of any uso that even an animal of his wisdom could put It to Then I remembered tho looks of hatred ho bad cast at that grizzly when up the tree flea preparing some kind of a It t wrprlsc party Jet thatgrlnl1 7 thought andipy the time Mr Grizzly w recovers from the surprise there wont bo enough left of him for an inquest About hull an hour later the black bear returned carrying In his mouth tho biggest nnd fattest coon I had seen for months Ho laid tho coon down by tho can of nitroglycerIn Then ho looked at me In an Inquiring manner I saw what ho meant Its a fair exchange I said Leave thin coon take tho glycerine and try and make life Interesting for that big grizzly 1 was mighty curious to know what plan that good old bear had In his head so I followed him Ho carried the can of nitroglycerin to ono of the paths frequented by the grizzly In his excursions for the purpose of teaching Pike county animals the strenuous life Every little while the black bear would stop and chucklo to himself at the thought of the surprise ho was preparing for his enemy nut bo was mighty careful to put down the can of nitroglycerin on these occasions lot ho was a wise bear and appreciated that gleeful chuckles and nltro glycerin dont go well together When ho reached tho path used by the griz zly ho carefully opened up tho can and left it standing In tho middle of the path Then ho went quite a dis lance down tho path to whero there was a sharp curve Just around the curvo tho black bear rolled u good kited rock HO that It stood directly In tho path A person or animal running swiftly down tno path and not know- Ing the rock was thoro would bo cer tnln to smash Into It and get consider able of u jar Having laid his trap tho black bear hurried back and hid himself about halt way between tho rock and tho place where he had placed tho can of nitroglycerIn Along towards evening the grizzly camp hulking rown the path Ho saw the nltroglycorln smelled of it and then tasted It Grizzlies have quite a sweet tooth and after laving onco tasted tho stuff that big bear couldnt rust until ho had eaten every mouth ful When ha Ilnlflhcd he was a per feet example of an explosive bear If anything jars your feelings or stomach my furry friend I remarked but In low tones youll enter tho bear happy hunting grounds In detach menta As soon as the big grizzly had eaten the explosive the black bear made hla appearance down tho path and began to send out challenging growls Tho grizzly looked up nnd for A moment seemed stunned at the Im pudence of the smaller bear In growl ing nt him slut the black bear didnt seem frightened Instead he stayed In the path and made Insulting re marks In the bear language and It ho hadnt been ftuch a venerable and re spectable bear ono would have said he was making faces at tho grizzly The grizzly didnt lose any time but start ed down the path with tho evident In tention of giving tho black bear a life lesson on the evils of Insulting bigger bears As soon as he saw tho grizzly was fairly under way the black bear turned and tcampored down the path as fast as his short legs could carry him Tho grizzly was gaining on him but I noticed tho black bear had al lowed himself sufficient start so that there wouldbe a good Interval be tween them when Mr Grizzly reached the rock When he rounded the curve tho black bear dodged Into the bushes at ono side Tho grizzly was going too fast to turn and of course he never suspected there was a big rock In the middle of his wellworn pith nnd ho smashed Into It at full speed For about a minute thero was a steady rain of grizzly When It stopped the black bear emerged from tho hushes Ho had been considerably jarred himself by the explosion of the loaded grlvily Hut ho didnt mind that and was ou land with a bear gloat that It did a persons heart Rood to Ben He fairly danced about tho placo wheru his enemy had last been eccn I nevor sow a look of moro per feet content ou the tare of anyone man or bear Grizzly bears are all right In their uncultured way that good boar seemed For About a Mlnnutc There Was a Steady Rain of Grizzly to be saying to himself lint when they run against nitroglycerin and the Intelligence of Pike county bears an explosion Is the only funeral sermon coming to them Tom Wilson was considerably wor- rIed when his pet hunter didnt return homo that night Tho next day he started out to find him He followed the grizzlys trail to whore tho eplo slug had occurred Then ho couldnt understand what had happened Tvo heard of explosive tempers ho said puzzled 11ko and my pet cer tainly had one Hut this is tho first tlmo I over helrdor one tearing a hole in tho ground- I explained what had happened Tom could hardly restrain his grief at thin thought of his grizzlys fate ills life was one long career 6f victory said Tom with tears in hla eyes but qven u grizzly cant stand a diet of nitroglycerIn and hard knocks I would Inter him with honors if I could Hut I would have to celebrate his obsequies over the bigger part of this county And Im not to conduct continuous lerformoncof nerals oven for the sake of my afar shed

tomorrow may I go with her Please mamma I never have been to tho poor house It Isnt a proper place for you Bertie said his sister Send tho children some of those paInted eggs but keep away from there you might cutch some disease No Marsfc I heard Dr Drown tell papa only yesterday that there was no sickness there except a few cases of of Tullmanery I think ho called It I dont know what that Is but it cant bo bad because papa said I could go If you and mamma wero willing Tho curtain parted again and a lit tie girl with largp shy eye and cheeks that dimpled when she spoke came timidly In Its nlco and cleanup there she said and theyre always so glad to see anybody- I think Egbert may go said Mrs Shelton Marie took a long look at Fannie and her will relaxed Surely It such a sweet wholesome little creature visited the county poor house It could not bo such a disgusting place as she had imagined- Do you think they would care for flowers Fannie she naked I could send a few 1I111f s and a basket of hya cinths and also a wagon hill of plum blossoms S Encouraged by this sudden spark of Interest Mrs Shelton said Suppose you go with the children Martha I do not think you would regret it Martha turned on her mother a look of pained surprise Oh how can you ask It she said and loft tho room in tears That shower broke up the cloud and let tile sunshine Into her heart againTho Easter morning saw her seated In tho millers little wagon between Egbert and hale driving old Dex ter to tho poor house A bent man on crutches opened tho gate for them the hall door stood open but no one was visible Inside A clatter of tin pans was heard In a room at the other end of tho hall and rising above this a clear birdlike voice singing Come Thou Font of Every Blessing its Cherry singing and washing the dishes said Fannie and added laugh Ing She calls them dishes but theyre only tin plates oukuow Come right In I know tho way As they entered the bare but clean room whero tho girl was washing tho pans sho hushed lter tons and drew a lung eager breath through her nos trite HsclnlhuJ ale exclaimed an plum blossoms holIgotemt Fannie approached her on tlptoe and held out a spray of

when Martha had given her some snowy clusters Ill 1ave em have a mug of water on tho kitchen shelf and Ill put a bit of shortncn In the bread this mini to cllebrote the day Jlst The paupersll be glad of that I ken tell ycz- Cherry had finished washing the plates and she conducted them to a flight of stairs and along a corridor Curious faces looked at them from the little rooms on each side Egbert and Fannie stopped at each to distrIb- ute flowers and Easter eggs In the hall near tho consumptives room they passed a group of sallow wretched looking women one of them holding In her irms a curlyhaired child Shes nigh about gone said one she dont know tho child Doctor says she cant last long said another Hear how she keeps calling Jennie- A feeble volco was Indeed repeating that name over and over tho voice of a wasted woman stretched on a low bedMartha had never known that the human frame could become so attenu aced and life remalrt Dont come in she said turning quickly to Egbert and Fannie There go out In tho yard and teach Cherry an Easter hymn The children obeyed and she en tered tho sickroom alone Never had slue so longed to comfort a fellow creature so felt herself so powerless It wrung her heart to hear that plead ing oftrepeated cry for Jennie Moved by a sudden Impulse she kneeled by tho bed took the thin hand in hers and whispered Yes yes what Is It What can I do Tho soft touch more than the whis per seemed to soothe tbo sufferer Oh Jennie she said have you come at last I knew nod would send OUjI prayed so long Martha only replied by a gentle pressure of the hand and after a lit tlo rest the woman went on It was tho water dear the cruel flood that took our home away John r I Knew God Would Send You I Prayed So Long had to work BO hard after that and you know he was never strong and She broke off with a gasp and Mar tha whispered again Yes yes I think I know Dont talk about it now nut the child dear tho woman pleaded It was for tho childs sake I prayed you wpuld come Keep the child Jennie and make It like yourself Ill ask no moro In tho last day She grew quiet after that Then the woman with tho child in her arms came and stood In the door The little one had cried Itself to sleepMartha took the child in her arms laid tho curly head on her shoulder and sat down so near the mothers bed that she could touch the wasted hand Sitting thus sho watched the hour away and saw tho look of pain change Into ono of perfect peace A sense of nearness to her risen Lord such as sho had never known thrilled her soul She felt that she stood In Jennies place to the orphaned child Who Jennie was she might never know but what she was had been revealed In the dying mothers words Make child like yourself Ill ask no moro Jri the last day Great changes

geography to begin with tho frnmedlat- s surroundings Tho first thing to ob servo Is tho configuration of the land plains hills mountains valleys slopes Tha next thing Is to learn directions After the points of tho compass are understood the various directions may bo acquired moro readily if tho child ren are asked to point out them or to walk a few stops toward a certain point as north northeast south south east southwest Object3 may also bo pointed out and their direction from the cclwbl house determined I When direction Is sufficiently under stood distance must be taught The units for short measurements of land should bo shown acsuratcy The foot and yard are easily obtained from Hnc3 on tho blackboard and by tUcks Many measurements should be made by the children of nearby objects For tho rod a light polo may be used being sure to cut It the exact length With this many distances from one to twenty rods should be measured allowing the children to guess and writ Ing down each guess before measure Ins I Tho ordinary unit for geographical measurements In the United States Is the mile It will pay to take some tlmo and pains to havo tho pupils acj quire a pretty accurate Idea of this unit If there Is no known mile wlth In reach let them measure one along the test road available from the school j house setting up a mark at the end Thus the foundation will be laid for further study and comparison The children will bo very much Interested In the length of tlmo It will take to automoIbUetho Judgment both in respect to time I and distance We now proceed to study the sur face of tho land beginning with its ir regularities of hills valleys and plains This will lead naturally to the action of the water upon the slope3 In the valleys Tho work of erosion is seen everywhere even In the school yard Its progress can be watched during shower when tiny rills make their way into larger streams uniting as they go and carrying with them particles of soil over which they pass This will lead to the fact that all streams large and small are made this way and to many other Interesting discoveries When once the children are thoroly started It will not be possible to con fine them to their own neighborhood They will want to know about mount alns plains rivers lakes and oceans and we shall need to take the whole world as a basis proceeding carefully and tactfully Imagine the nurprlss It must be to a child to learn that the earth Is a great round ball and that by far the greatest part of Ito surface is covered with water that the earth turns on its axis every twentyfour hours and goes around tho sun once a year It requires not only a great stretch of the imagination to see it but a violent strain upon his credulity to believe It It Is not to be wondered at if he hesitateD and doubts It took wise men thousands ct years to learn these facts and generations to convince the people generally of their truth There aro even yet un i educated men of fair intelligence who are not convinced- It I is well to keep the children some weeks or even months studying local geography before bringing them to th difficult task of considering the earth as a whole Let them wonder where the end of the earth Is what is beyond and what It rests upon until their own investigations bring them to the necessity of an explanation Permit them to exhaust their own ingenuity in accounting for things before telling them the facts It will teach them to think I When the time comes to teach them tho shape of the earth it is betI ter not to use a globe at first Let them use their imaginations It will requlro time and stretch upon stretch to take It In with constant changes and additions to the picture The questions they will ask while groping foray understanding will bo many and varied and will require patience and knowledge to answer To guide their farotruth Is a privilege any teacher might well covet When their minds are satisfied with tho main facts

The names of oceans of the hemispheres and the grand divisions may be pointed out tho it Is not necessary to spend tlmo In committing them to memory as in gaining other knowledge they wll gradually learn their names by con stantly referring to them IThat three fourths of the surface of the earth Is covered with water la always a matter Mr surprise to children and appears to them a waste The way

with zones being care ful not to overtax young minds by burdening them with matters too deep for their comprehension There wll be plenty of time to learn the harder parts when their minds are further de eloped and when they have acquired more information The equatorial line the lines that bound the zones with statements of the heat and cold of these belts will be sufficient for beginners particularly if the questions that occur to them are answered to their satisfaction Wo are now rady to ctudy the cart as the home of man and of the other animals that contribute to his comfort or pain Up to this point a book in the hands of the children would be a hindrance rather than a help They have been a long time gathering the Information outlined In tho foregoing paragraphs by means of talks with the teacher But now they are far enough along to gather knowledge by reading The modern geography with Its pictures of people places Industries and animals is a most delightful book It should not be put In the hands of the children without a number of talks or rather hints concern- Ing the delightful things It contains itlwithWhen a child comes into possession- of a new book it should bo an Important event in tb life and tho teacher should not rail to take notice of It and comment upon It Ho may tell of the first book ho ever had how proud he was of It what he learned from it and how carefully he presrved It A little forethought of this nature may save reproofs and punishments later and be fruitful of good besides- A text book In geography even it- t is the most admirable of Its kind Is not sufficient In itself Its knowledge must be adapted to these particular children In this particular plac and supplemented by much that the teacher can supply or develop by class discussion Every paragraph every picture and map should be subjected- to careful study and questioning to see that tho meaning is grasped and that the knowledge therein contained is ad ded to what they have before acquired Everything In tho book In some way touches their lives and the connection should be made clear It takes a live teacher to do tila but It pays and anything less Is not real teaching

when it is manufactured In to necessary articles Tho cost of enough wood and iron in the raw state to make a wagon would be but a few dollars When manufactured that is when skill has been added it is

Senatorial Contest Keeping Eyts Open to tho Main Chance PROBABILITY OF A DEADLOCK i Open Rumors of a Dreak From the Deckham Ranks Creates Engrossing Situation at the Opening of Ken tuckys General Assembly Frankfort Ky Jan 7For many reasons tho present session of the Kentucky legislature promises to be a memorable one and Kentucky has had several memorable legislatures particularly In 18S4 In 1896 and In 1900 I Of course the chief Interest centers in the race for United States senator I and the possibility of a deadlock Governor Bcckham Is tho nominee 6t tho Democratic party for senator but there have been persistent rumors that some of the Democratic senators and representatives will not vote for him The legislature In joint ballot stands 73 Democrats to 65 Republicans the senate having 22 Democrats and 16 Republicans while the house has 51 Democrats and 49 Republicans If nn ninny as tour Democrats refuse to vote for Reckham a deadlock will M suit It has been frequently asserted In the newspapers that this Democratic legislator or that one would not support Bcckham but so far no one has openly announced that he would vote against him On the Republican side It seems to be conceded that oxGovernor W O Bradley will be nominated to oppose Bcckham and some of the Republi can leaders have declared positively that the house would be organized br them and not by the Democrats If this be true then a deadlock is sure to result The first vote for senator will not bo taken till Jan 21 although the legisla ture convenes on Jan 7 The senate and house will vote separately In their respective chambers on Jan 21 and will meet In joint session In the house the following day to ratify the election if someone was elected or to take an other ballot If no one was elected the day before Each side Is warily watching the other now and neither side is doing any talking as to plans but each Is willing to take advantage of any mis take made by the others The do plorable feature of It all is that It Is admost sure to bring about much bit terness if a deadlock comes There will be a number of contests for seats In the houso flied by both Republicans and Democrats These will be fought over bitterly as the house Is so close that one vote may decide the fate of every contestant for a seat for If one contestant Is seated be will naturally vote with his party to unseat others If one Democrat In tho house refuses to vote with his party the house will bo deadlocked and cannot be or ganized till some other man deserts or the deserter comes back In such an event James E Stone chief clerk of the last house will preside as the law makes It his duty to call the house to order and preside till tho speaker Is elected If a deadlock comes Mr Stone will preside from day to day till someone comes over or goes over and votes for the other fellow If all the talk about a deadlock proves to be moonshine then W J Gooch Democrat of Simpson county will be elected speaker of the house and James E Stone chief clerk- S There seems to bo no chance of a deadlock in the senate but that body will have Its troubles as well as the house if all indications aro true In 1896 when W J Worthington Rep vas lieutenant governor the majority of the senators were Democrats so they passed a rule providing for a special committee to select all the standing committees of tho senate Theretofore It had been the custom for the lieutenant governor who Is ex offlclo president of the senate to appoint all the committees probably for the reason that the lieutenant gover nor and the majority in the senate had always been of the same political par ty since the war It has been stated that the Demo crats in the present senate would repeat what was done In 1F96 as Wm H Cox the prevent lieutenant governor Is a Republican Cox has served two terms in the senate and lias been Very popular with the Democrats In that body so It Is possible that they may agree to let him appoint the com mittees The senate and house meet today but it Is probable the standing committees will not be appointed be fore next Saturday or Monday so It will be several days before it Is deter mined who will name the senate com mittees One of the measures that will be bit terly fought over this session will bo the bill or bills providing for rcdls trlcting the state Into senatorial and representative districts The Democratic court of appeals declared the redistricting of two years ago uncon stitutional because of the unequal div ision of population some of the dis tricts having 12000 while others had 40000 Tho court went further and said the present districts were In re ality unconstitutionally made up but as the elections in tttfm bad been held for so many years act cre sting them would not now bo declared unconstitutional because it would be against public policy It Is always a hard tight to pass a satisfactory redistricting Mil oven where onl politi cal party has a big majority but It will bl especially so this year because of the almost even division of the two parties In the legislature As tho present districts are considered to bo to the advantage of the Democrats It Is presumed the Republicans will make the hardest fight to have now districts created that will give a more equal division of population It was expected two years ago that tho present legislature would bo able to hold Its sessions In the handsome now statehouse but no provision has yet been mado for furnishing the new building and making It habitable Tho building Itself Is very near completion It being nil under roof except a small part of tho center dome and much of the interior work Is completed It Is expected that It will take another ap propriation of J260000 to pay for fit ting up the new structure In proper style with desks fileboxes carpets furniture etc and tile present legis lature will be asked to make the appropriation for that purpose The to appropriations so far made for the new capltnl amount to 1250000 which will complete It all but tho fur nlshlngs According to the estimates of tho states financial officers It will not be necessary to Incrcaso the rate of taxation to complete the now build lag as no increase was made when tho othe appropriations were made and especially as there Is over a million dollar balance In the state treas ury now Yesterday was moving day at the statehouse all tho new Republican om clays taking charge the Democrats retiring In many of the offices where tho wcrk Is necessarily complicated a number of the old clerks will bo re tained for several months or until the new clerks get trained for the work It Is expected however that In six months all the Democratic clerks will be replaced lr Republicans Tho attorney general under the present law Is allowed no clerks or rsslstants and Is probably the hardest worked official In the statehouse A strong effort will be made this see lion to have a law passed providing him with at least two assistants and a stenographer Governor Willian has been having a strenuous time since his Inauguration a month s to and what with office seekers night riders and the com ing of tho legislature he has not been treading the primrose path of dal liance The governor has some fads but they are fads that are tempered with common sense For Instance ho says he will appoint no man to office who applies for It and simply signs the Initials of his Drat name That Is J H Smith will not be considered at all but John II Smith will be He says ho has quit talking politics now and Is trying earnestly to bo the governor for nil the people and using ever means In his power to enforce tho peoples laws that are on tho statute booksMuch has been said about the governor being placed on the national ticket next year as a candidate for vice president but he positively for bids any discussion of the subject Ho says ho has been elected to servo as governor for four years and If he lives he purposes to carry out the contract made with the people last election dayProbably the hardest nut tho new governor will have to crack will be the settlement of the tobacco situation and the arrest and conviction of the night riders who have been destroying tobacco warehouses In Hopklnsville and Russcllvllle It Is tho general belief that under the present laws it will be almost Impossible to Indict or convict the night riders because the mem bership of the tobacco associations Is so largo that It will be almost Impossi ble to get a Jury that will not have several friends and teilow members of the night riders on It This being the case the present legislature will be asked to evolve a new law by which that class of lawbreakers may bo reached and punished Governor Will sons recommendations along this lino In his message to the legislature are strong and to the point lIe seems to havo sot his heart on solving this question and Is determined that tho law shall be upheld and every mans property and alto made secure from lacicis groups of men who operate at night behind masks Governor Willson has announced that he Is In favor of all the state In stitutions being managed by nonpar tisan boards rind says he will not recommend that legislature make any appropriation for any educational In stitution tbat is maintained by thn state and managed by trustees who all belong to the same political party As an Instance hs cites the State Collegei at Lexington all of Its trustees being Democrats It Is proper to stale however that those who are In position I to know state that white the trustee of the State College are all Democrats a majority of tho teachers and In structors are Republicans so that evens matters up In a measure and re lIoves it of the odlunvof being known as a partisan college I The temperance question will be an other factor that will enter largely Into this legislative session A bill to extend the present county unit law so as to Include every county In the state irrespective of the size of the cities it contains will be presented early In the session and it Is believed the bill will be enacted The liquor representatives will fight
