BLOOD WARM This is the time of year when almost every one has a cold grippe and when measles pneumonia whooping cough and diseases a long start kill a few folks and make the rest of us miserable Most of these diseases are more or less due to the weather Those that arc not usually catch us when we are not feeling well and have not the strength to throw them off and again the weather is to blame But there is a way of preventing these diseases even if we cant change the weather And that is to keep the weather away from us Our clothes are as much our protection as our houses are and ifwe keep well clothed we will be away from the weather just as we were shut up in the house The main thing to do is to keep the bloodwarm Then the little corpucles in it can do their work well and throw any diseases that may get into it And if the blood gets cojd it gets numb just as a person does and cannot do the work intended for it So that if we keep it warm we arc pretty likely to be warm Fortunately is pretty easy to do In most parts of the body the blood vessels are deep under the fleshwhere they arc kept warm and there are only a few places where they come near enough to the skin so that the cold air will not chill the precious blood So if these places are kept warm the whole body will be in a pretty healthycondition Probably the most delicate place and the one that needs protection most is at the base of the brain the back of the head AH the blood in the body has to pass that spot and if it gets cold the blood will all get chilled Another important spot is the wrist where the blood is so close to the skin that can see it beating A strip of clotharound the wrist will often keep the hand warm when a glove on the hand with the wrist exposed will leave the hand cold In the same way it is more important to have the ankles wellcovered than to have heavy shoes on the rest of the feet A strip of heavy cloth inside the top of the shoe is worn bymany people and is a great protection It is also im portant to protect the back and the abdomen- It is foolish to talk of hardening yourself A man can no more be hardened not to catch cold than water can be hardened not to freeze It has been shown that many children arc killed by the hardening process and that those that do live thru it are more likely to be delicate than those that have been carefully cared for People who live out of doors are likuly to be stronger and breathe more pure air and so keep more healthy than those that are shut up in houses but this is only true when the body is well protected This is not very exciting reading but if every body that does read it should act on it it would probably save fifty lives this winter It is foolish not brave to risk death and disease by neglecting these little things that make all the difference in the world And every father that is worth the name will protect his children even if he is foolish about himself AIII WINS DEBATE Judges Decide

that impossible his presence of mind deserted him I brushed by him and had pushed open the door at the head of the stairway before ha could coo to a decision Walt hero I said in a tone of BOtamaad 1 havo an appointment with Madame de Varnler You were coming for me of course T Nev be answered sullenly Ma dam Is at ber devotions she Is not to be disturbedi best Judge of that And added again Walt hero I found myself In a great barnlike room when I had locked the door be hind me at tho held of the staircase It was lighted dimly by narrow win tows placed high against the roof of rafters and was almost bare of turn ture At the three angles cf this room were the three closed loors So far the crafty knave bad told the truth But in which of these rooms should r find Madame de VarnlerT And in which Captain Forbes- It availed me little to have pene trated 0 far Into the enemy strong bold unless I could accomplish still pore At any moment Alphonie might tho alarm and I wished to take Madame de Varnler by surprise LbQgan to make a circuit of the tri angular room I paused at each door and knocked softly At none of the rooms aid I receive any response I sras at once perplexed and dismayed There was no reason why either Cap aln Fotbes or Madame de Varnler should keep silence And then a maddening thought struck the Perhaps my crafty knave Jacques bad been more cunning than I had given him the credit of being What if he had cleverly whetted my curiosity acting on instructions from Dr gtarvff What If Alphonse had deliberately lured me hero What if I were a prisoner myself 7 Dismayed that I should have been so great a fool I again made the round of each of the doors not knock rug his time but shaking the handle of each And as I seized the handle of the third door It yielded to the touch and swung silently on Its hinges I stood at the lintel abashed at my angry intrusion It was the oratory of Madame do Vamfor Little larger than a closet and In shape a half crescent tho walls were hung with purple velvet Facing mo was an altar Two tapcrsfltckercd on either side of tho crucifix tfcfore the altar her eyes bent to the crucifix knelt Madame do Varnler the adventuress absorbed in her de votions Even my entrance was un noticed Dut it was not piety of this ex traordinary woman that held me petri fied in astonishment and speechless Within arms reach as I stood there was a bier And on it his hands crossed on his breast his pallid face strangely calm lay the mortal remains of him whom I knew at once to be Sir Mortimer Brett It was a terrifying apparition Terrifying because it might have been myself lying there so strikingly simi lar at first sight was the likeness of myself to the dead minister But as the candles which had flickered in the draught made by the open door burned more steadily and I looked at his face closely I saw that after all the resemblance was but superficial I recovered my senses Now at last I was to know the truth Twice I opened my lips to call to the woman who knelt there But I could not bring myself to speak Tho hilly dead banished passion from this place Hero I could not reproach and threaten her I stood silently at the threshold pitying rather than con demning waiting for her to discover lay presence Minutes passed before she turned her head Our eyes met myself sternly ques tioning with a look Startled she was at my dramatic entrance but she met tuy stern look in absolute calm No terror or shadow of guilt distorted her tragic beauty I had come to de nounce to demand justice I found myself rather pitying Madame de Varnler I said gently tfie hour has come when you must tell me the Uuth I raised her to her feet and led her from tho oratory closing the door be kind me She clung to mo In tho fervor of her appeal Yes she whispered it Is tho hour when you must know the truth CHAPTER XXIV In the Tower of the Three Rooms The great room of tho central tower was almost baro of furniture as I have sajd In the center was a long table such as one sometimes pees in the refectory of a iaonafletf Half a dozen chairs stood against the walls 1 placed tier of these chairs near the table Not hero she cried Glancing toward the little room We bad left And why noU Here at least we ituU be tree from Interruption 0 She went to the door of the stair caseIt is locked she crfcd startled Yes I havo taken the precaution of seeing that we are not disturbed I said calmly Now madam which of those two rooms is Captain Forbes a prisonerIf surprised her she concealed her chagrin cleverly She gesticulated to the room at the right of the oratory And perhaps the key of the staircase unlocks that door as well She shook her head smiling at me jHas servant the kyrNo Then whero is IU Women are supposed not to have pockets But I can hfdo a key about my person as well as you How did you find your way hero HI surprised Alphonse opening the door of tho staircase behind tho tapestry Ab you are clever I knew it she cried approvingly This is no time for compliments Captain Forbes must be released And It I refuse- I shall lnil tVery well I refuse- I looked my perplexity Tfaouck TO I Entrance were so the chamber of death with tho facilo Ilght heartedness of the Latin race she banished its grim memo ory This woman had nerves of steel Sho moved in callous indifference from tragic scenes to those of flippant comedy Or perhaps she saw the useless ness of enraging me If I compel you forcibly Do i American gentlemen assault hostesses bad mo at a complete disad vantage To carry out my threat was impossibleCome madam let us come to termsGladly monsieur She swept me a mock courtesy And they areZ Ho shall out of tho chateau when you have heard my story Even if I refuse to help you She hesitated a moment Yes she promised with a sigh I put no great faith in that promise Nothing was simpler than for her to promise But if presently she still refused I could resort to extreme meas urea then as readily as now If Cap tain Forbes was Indeed a prisoner of Madamo dq Varnier and she actually did have in her possession the key that would open the door of his prison I held Madame de Varnler equally at a disadvantage lie is unharmed then A scratch or two perhaps But to a bravo soldier It is nothing lie is a tactless visitor your Captain Forbes I confess that two methbds of Dr Star va are not too delicate In finesse But since ho has committed the blunder of detaining him I prefer not to make It worso by releasing him Just yet- I accepted her decision In silence- I could havewished you na more favorable mood monsieur she said wistfully I am afraid you will listen to mo at s Judge rather thaa U aI Mead t vL r De sure of this If I am to help you It will be only to save you perhaps from the consequences of your folly Myself she protested passionate ly Merciful Heaven I am not think- Ing of myself Sometimes tho lade vidual must be sacrificed to save a race Did Joan of Arc or Charlotte Corday think of themselves Life honorovcrythln sacrifice them a thousand times to savo my country Sho was no longer tho saint praying for tho dead at tho altar A fierce energy possessed her Her words filled me with something akin to 1 irror She extolled a murderess Were her own hands red with murder- It Is the price I must pay she continued gloomily I pay it without murmuring If I wore a man I should be fighting for my poor peopln with the sword I nm a weak woman I must fight with a womans weapons Sometimes those weapons have been spying even what you might call treachery Say that you despise me Tne story I cried Your prelude madam is not fortunate Sho shook ber head wearily Did she despair already of my aid Nevertheless I say these weapons aro someUmcs necessary In my un equal fight for an oppressed race When I use them against enemies far from feeling remorse or pity I glory In causing pain But sometimes there crosses my path one whom I respect who is generous and strong It is then that I shudder at the suffering I must cause But I do not spare him however brave and generous ho may be Such a one was Sir Mortimer Brett I interrupted sternly For my country I glory that Sir Mortimer has stooped to dishonor For my country you must bear the burden of his dishonor She spoke rapidly her voice rising from a whisper to a cry that was strident and harsh She made strange gestures as though she were in pbysl Even My Was Unnoticed near their She walk cal pain striking the table with her open palm as she spoko the last wordsI bear the burden of Sir Mor timers dishonor i Now that the words were spoken I knew that I bad expected them For this I had come to the chateau This was my task You will do thlsnot for me I am not so mad as to dream that now I myslfIme you cannotescape the ordeal But for that other woman tho woman you have sworn to help for her you will make th sacrifice You speak in riddles 1 said cold ly Enough of vaguo menace and warningShe will go down on her knees to you She will offer you any roward any happiness In saving the honor of her name you must stoop to dis honorNever Honor is not to1M purchased In that coin Or what the world calls dishonor she added la eager haste It Is the motive that exalts the deed Is it not always noble to suffer for another And Uis not merely tile happiness of one woman I place in your hands It is the chastity of thousand womci the appeasing of the hunger of ten thousand childrenthe destiny of a race You will find that I am not to be mod by these heroic Tell me how I an to save the honor of Sir Mortimer Brett What In the sight of God is a na she continued vehemently heedleu of my Impatience If it will save tho pure soul of a young jlrl if it writ El vo back children to their mothers 1 Hay boldly that I am asking you to act a die Look we will no longer fool ourselves I ask you to do a little ml that much good may come X uk your to submit to disgrace aot merely tot this woman of your own society but that you may bo the savior of a na lion Monsieur be merciful The facts I InsistedIFirst of all though it may weary you I wish to ton you a little of myself My parents were of that most unhappy race tho Macedonian Chris trans My father was rich for that country wo w u happy But when J was a child I was awakened one night by the crash of musketry and the glare of flames Tho Turkish butchers had attacked our vII Iet I saw toy sister snatched from her mothori arms and stabbed before my eyes A blow felled my mother My father was thrown to earth manacled and trodden upon I was taken captive My fate would havo been oven more horrible had I not been the cap tive of a Turkish omcer who was kind to me and adopted mo lint ho war one of that hated race and secretly I tolerated his kindness only to be ro venged In some way ho offended the Sultan my protector was banIshed We lived in Paris At last tho hour of my vengeance came Ho had an enemy ono of hit own race I betrayed him 110 died i violent death and that night I think I was happy- I found myself rich he bad left me everything I was beautiful and well educated a life of pleasuro lay before me Well I have drunk deep of tho cup of pleasure But that I might bo happy No If I havo banqueted with princes it was to learn their secrets I have flattered and cajoled enemies that I might betray them Sometimes I have betrayed my friends In short I am consecrated to my country For her I have made mysoll an adventuress If I could not direct ly further her cause there wero se crets to be bought and sold at a price Tte money purchased bread and arms I have schemed intrigued betrayed tempted always to bring Macedonia one step nearer her freedom Madame do Varnier I interrupted with a brutal directness at any other time these personal reminiscence might bo interesting enough but nowYou are adamant she cried despairingly It is Impossible It seems to awaken your sympathy Then I must appeal to your intelligence You must understand something of the political situation I know enough of mat already Once more I must beg you to como to tho episode of Sir Mortimer Brett How can you know anything of the complexities of tho Balkan situation she demanded at once startled and surprised Sufllco it that I know this Prince Ferdinand of Bulgaria will invade Turkish Macedonia and free that tel ritory from the Turkish yoke it his army Is financed by Kuhn a banker of Now York City but a Macedonian by birth This banker makes one stipulation Bulgaria must have Eng lands promise of her moral support England must promise Bulgaria a free field Sir Mortimer Brett was to have gained tbat promise from England You made Sir Mortimer tho victim of your intrigues How and to what ex tentthat Is what I wish to know I was sent to Sofia to accomplish that It seemed a hopeless trek For 15 years ho had resisted every en treaty and bribe He had the absolute confidence of the British Furclgn Office But It was necessary to win him over at any costs Wo had secret In formation to the effect that if he ad vised Englands interference she would InterfereYou art Impatient I shall not weary you by telling of my efforts Sir Mortimer was n cold nan and at tremely difficult of approach For some time I despaired of Influencing him But I learned at last that be neath Iris calm exterior vrns actually a heart that throbbedfor the suffof Ings of Macedonia How did you learn this I demanded curiously as she paused You will despise me the moro who I tell you she replied hesitatingly and her face was scarlet I stole hit diary It seems atrocious to you that I should so have repaid his kindness but I have told you that to play the spy to be the high priestess of cue nlng has been my lot This diary ri veoled to mo Sir Mortimers true char acterI have said that he was extremely reserved a virtue that all dlplomatUU must possess lie was never to tx tricked or excited into a rash statement Every word he spoke with the precision of an automaton because every spoken word weighed And he found relief by giving eXt presslon to his emotions in his diary Yes what ho had bidden from th world there he revealed and in the pages of this diary I learned two facts that were of vital Importance tome I think I can guess themI sailS coldly First that Sir Mortimer loved you secondly than ho was temptcd to put an end to the atrocities in Mace donia by

productiveness of thVsoIl be thoroughly un derstood This bulletin Is written for the purposes of putting before tho farmer a statement of our present knowledge of the factors which Influ once the fertility of the soil and of the relation of these factors to each other Tho agricultural plants require for growth a favorable temperature light and a supply of material including carbon dioxide water and curtain chem ical elements derived from the soil The chief of these elements are nItro- gen phosphorus potassium calcium aad magnesium Since oxygen U used at every poInt of the plant whore growth takes place it Is needed at the tops of the roots and therefore soil must b J Aerated All these conditions aro dependent on the climate on tbo physical and chemical conditions of the poll and

One of the most common complaints today coming from the farm hlthc incompotcnoy of most ot tho farm la borers that can be secured U is not to bo doubted that this will result finally In tho establishing of sonic kind of school or bureau where it will bo possible for crude laborers to bo made Into competent farm labor ore Thorn are thousands of idlo men in the cities in ordinary times that 1 would be plod to go out and work in tho coimlry If they understood the work Farm work also varies so great ly in character that one klndof a farm laborer Is not well fitted to do other kinds of farm labor Thus a city roan that has worked as stable man In a great horsebreed ing establishment would not bo well fitted by iris experience to go to work for n horticulturist When ho loses his position with tho horsebreeder he turns his faco cityward and ROCS to work for some man In town If ho had an opportunity to loam how lo do all kinds of farm work ho could readily change from ono class of work to another but as a matter of fact It Is not easy for a man that withes to learn farming to get with a man that will lot him Irarn all kinds of farming Usually his work Is so onesided that ho makes little progress This Is a matter that will doubtless bo taken up In time by the depart money In our agricultural college that deal with farm economics thinks Farmers Review It would bo entirely easy for some one of our agrlr turnl colleges to start such a fill school as an experiment with the Idea of turning out annually a few allaround farm laborers who would have learned many kinds of work

CLARENCE ROOK English Critic rn I r there were no women in the world there wouldnt bo any novels remarked the clerk in n whisper And as I stood ut the counter I noticed that nine out of ten of his customers were women with novels that they carried in a strap The readers of novels are women A few hours later I was look ing over the list of Fiction Kecctved in a daily paper And it appeared that something like nine out of ten novels are written by women A few days ago I was confronted by tho state ment in advertisement the rentcst novelist of the cen tury It was tho announcement of a book by a woman who has apparently never thought or dreamt of anything beyond the sexual relations of man and woman Another book came upon my table possibly my illluckbut it w another womans book that followed the account of a girl who visited country houses nndwell it was all dress and indecorum But this book was simply the story of a three weeks orgy of sensulism And as I turn over the other books that arrive those of them with a womans namo on the title page I find that they are all concerned with tills side of life It is the side of life you will remember that such men as Scott Dickens Thackeray scarcely touched and Stevenson shall I continuothey could write stories that gripped the world without the lure of lust But the woman intervenes And the woman novelist such as I am thinking of reminds me of the nudge of a schoolfellow when I was 14 She turns the drawingroom into a smokingroom- All about love 1 Love that is legitimate illegal illusory The love that lingers the love that loves and runs away but always loves And whether it is love that is illegal or illusory the woman is always writing about it and turning her thoughts to that one point which she has regarded as the central idea of tho universe When she begins to write she thinks of nothing else but of the central factthe marrying and giving in marriage with all the byways and pitfalls that lead to or evade that excellent result But she is thinking of it all the time Tier novels prove it for they deal only with this love and her incursion into fiction has meant that tho story of the animal side of the human being has become popular In fioikm she has succeeded in degrading literature to the level that is oo c rally reached in the smokingroomas a joke rt Aiuuy mitIl tIle rathat ttnttger BylROBERT Eo FRAZER

always had their suspicions that he was bad how they take great pleasure in repeating all they knowall they have heard all they have surmised and what others have conjured up How greatly they are pleased at even seeming corroboration of the scandal bow readily they believe itand upon what trivial evidence How tho story grows in magnitude and virulence with each repetition until a fellow man and perhaps a blameless man is ruined his heart broken his wife and children disgraced and in bitter mourning All this the see and hear but in their love for scandal they overlook it all and in heir ghoulish glee rejoice at this tearing down of a character and repu tationPerhaps this particular scandal turns out to bo false and if it is proved false by evidence that cannot be disputed what u

standards are apparently thought to be needed one for life in the world of business or politics and the other for death and what may possibly come afterwards There could be no greater fallacy than this Not only ia a double standard of life for earth and heaven unnecessary but the life that is not fit for ono is not fit for the other and the life that is most fit for one is most fit for the other What then is the character of this life whose results arc most satisfactory and which therefore is most successful We can easily sea what it is not It is not a life given to tho satisfaction of

attainment of none of these ends of life can bring the desired success What then is left for the earnest seeker of true success In the first place the spirit of love or service should dominate the life of all In the second place the true dignity and worth of useful work should be recognized work of tho hands as well as of the head When men como to see that devoted service in sonic useful calling of whatever kind it be is the highest form of neighborly love as well as the most effective means of genuine happiness they will have gone a long way toward set tling the question of success A

Redeemer Comment and Suggestive Thought Tho first sign which Jesus gave was the revelation of his glory at Cana of Galileo related In the first part of tho chapter In which our lesson Is found At tho closo of our last lesson we left Jesus and his five or six disciples on the way from Detbabara to Galilee The dlsclplos had as yet but slight acquaintance with Jesus his charac ter his powers and Ms mission They believed in him but they needed a deeper foundation for their faith and a fuller knowledge of his work Everything about this miracle must have been a strange and wondrous revS elation of Jesus to them as a light from within or as the sunlight shin Ing through dull atalned glass windows reveals the truo nature of the picture wrought in them and they are ablaze with royal colors such as are the ex quisite lamp shades of Favrlle glass that require the electric bulb within to bring out their lovely hues Jesus was a prince in disguise and he threw off his outward guise and appeared In his own royal glory What Did This Miracle Reveal to the Disciples Concerning tho True Nature of Jesus1 It revealed tho miraculous powers residing in him which would enable him to do the work the Messiah was to do 2 It mado known to them that be was sent from God as his son with divine credentials worthy ot his orI- gin and his mission The Second Sign The Cleansing of the Temple Not long ator the slim at the wedding n strange al most discordant note was heard in that anthem of love and joy and hope That experience did not express the whole of life nor the whole of the mis sion of Jesus The now sign was as illuminating and marvelous and un expected as was the first It was the act of a hero a patriot a reformer and a king 13 And tho Jews passover the great annual religious feast of tho Jews to which all good Jews were expected to come Sometimes according to Josophus as many as 2000000 via hors wero present Jfcsus went up from Capernaum r 12 to Jerusa lem Jcaus was particular to attend these great feasts for however much they were often perverted and mis used by some they were divinely ap pointed services Jesus Heroic Act of Patriotic Re form When Jesus entered the tem pie and saw this desecration of his Fathers house which ho had seen many a time during his youthhis soul flamed with indignation What ho saw was contrary to all law Jew lab Roman and Divine and what ho did wax patriotic toward all three kingdoms under which ho lived 15 Ho alone unaided unknown made a scourge of small cords ropes mado of rushes like a Roman fla gelluut or scourge with several lashes nnd drove them all out of the tem ple the court tho sheep and the oxen and those who trafficked in thorn Ho did not strike the men most probably not oven the animals and such a scourge would not hurt them The owners would naturally follow their cattle without the gates Poured out the changers money Upon tho marble pavement thus stopping their traffic 16 And Bald unto them that sold doves Tho doves fcclag in cages could not be driven out Take these things hence Tho boldnesS of the net may well havo given a hush to the noisy crowd and the voice of Jesus rang out JInko not my Fathoro house a house of merchandise How Was It Possible fat Jesus to Succeed In ThisWhy did this great burly crowd of drovers nnd soldiers and elders in authority yield to the single voice of an unknown young man Because they know that they were in the wrong Consclenco makes cowards of us all Decause they know that God was on his side and ono with God is a majority DL Ruse Jesus embodied in himself as Ii prophet the moral sentiment of the nation All tho true friends of law who must have been long grieved by this disorder would defend the righteousness of his action thus ran dering resistance impossible What This Sign Revealed as to the Nature of Jesus and His King domLot rio mistake be made con what is meant by a Christian stunt telusno as la too often tak6 one side of the character of Christ In forming an

ny rror UIonr 4 1IISTORY Tho study of his tory like other studies should not begin In a book History Is not made in books tho much of It Is recorded there It Is written so that It may not be left to the uncertain memory of man that future generations may have a truthful account of the lives of their ancestors and that all the world may havo the story of the rise growth and life of a nation The civilization of the world Is built upon the doings of the past and each Indi vidual character Is moulded almost as much by what has been as by what Is now For ages very little of the history of the world was written It was e handed down from generation to gen eration by tradition It was told around the fireside by parents visitors and travelers listened to and talked over by tho children who In r turn gave It to others This was a t delightful way to learn and wo can imagine with what breathless interest the young peoplo listened when some bright traveler visited tho home and regaled them with choice tales of the long ago There was a great temptation to eolor up the stories to make the listeners eyes widen with wonder trod to Inspire them wllh awe of one who knew of such marvelous happen togs The triuu of these talcs oould not be trusted and even when history began to bo written BO much of it was tradition that it has taken a long time p to alit the truo from tho falso and in many caeee the real truth can never be known But whether true or false they are valuable becauso they are themselves a part of history showing how our ancestors lived and learned But modern history can bo relied upon since its first essential Is accur acy and no pains are spared to get at tho truth But we are not ready yet and never shall bo to discard the old way of teaching by word of mouth No one = knows BO well as the teacher how matter should bo prostrated to school children The words of the book are not adapted to their understanding and there Is not enough of detail to give it life and meaning Then the kindly voice with Its proper emphasis and Inflection and the loving smile add to the charm of the narrative The teacher gets his information from books but he is not confined to them for his words nor his manner of telling If he is describing the dis coveries and early settlements of America ho may add a hundred details not given in the books that will make the mental pictures more vivid and lasting He must be careful not to give any wrong impressions or false colorings The actual happenings are sufficient if told In an Interesting manner and with the proper amount of real coloring History thus taught may begin with the youngest pupils and be kept up for several years before the textbook is put In their hands Their little minds should not be crammed with history but they may have a story for their especial benefit once a week u This will give them time totalk about it think about it digest it and be ready for the next Each story shoul have one main point and only one so sil that the mind will not be overtaxed in I grasping and remembering It Every item told should contribute to this on main point so that even if the details are forgotten the principal thought will remain Suppose for example we wish to begin with Columbus and the discovery of America it may run something like this Today I will tell you a story of A VERY ACTIVE BOY Ills c u parents named him Christopher He was born in n city by the sea where there are many ships and boats When just a little fellow he played on the beach watching the waves come and go and gather shells as they were washed up Ho loved to watch the- Coetleutd Many articles of food can have much e r added to their food value by prepar lag them with a cream or white sauce ag It is usually called This Is also a great help in making a little go further and is u cheap and good way to piece out left overs P Thorp are three kinds of white sauce uRedthe thin the medium and the tbfck Tho thin is used mostly for preparing cream soups It will not curdle as milk alone does when an acid vegetable like tomatoes is put In IL The medium la used for most creamed dishes mails of meats or Tege f j n Y Ie i great ships como to the landing like graceful birds with white wings and see the passengers land and greet their i friends But better ho liked to hear the shouts of the sailors and watch them at the work of lading and un- I lading the big ships He thought it was a Jolly life and when he was a man ho would bo a sailor He enjoyed seeing tho fishing boats come in their sides well down In the I water with tho weight of the shining fish Sometimes huge war vessels I came and went Ho would see the of ficers with their glittering swords and the soldiers In their bright uniforms drilling and marching to the strains lof music and then he would want to I bo a soldier Or he would see a merchant Its of teasI ship unloading cargo land spices and fabrics from other Ho loved to listen to the sail byiseaAll these things made him love the sea and filled him with a desire to be a i great man and do wonderful things He early learned to swim to row l and to sail a boat Ills active life I made him strong and healthy and fearless Sometimes he would teach I younger boys how to swim and if one ventured too far and was in danger of drowning he would plunge Into the waves and bring him to the shore From all that ho did and heard and i saw he learned many valuable lessons I that proved of great help to him in I after years j Ills schooling was not neglected He learned to read write and solve hard problems in arithmetic But best he liked geography and history The go jography told of other lands and seas land the history described the deeds jof great mono In this way he grew to be a strong and well Informed man Next week I will toll you more about him The subject of the next story maybe CHRISTOPHER AS A SAILOR I If by this time the children want to heImap or picture showing that It was J the Gateway to Italy Proceeding I with tho story tell how young Columbus they will have his full name by i this time at the ago of fourteen became a sailor kept up his studies ofI astronomy geometry and philosophy everything that would Improve his I mind and help in his chosen profes islon Between voyages he made maps and sold them to people to help defray his expenses for he was poor Tell them how his studies led him to believe he could go to Asia by sailing to the westward more quickly and eas Ily than by the caravan route that wa eo long and wearisome how peo laughed at him for his peculiar notions In believing tho world was round i and that be could find Asia by sailing Ito the westward how the Atlantic ocean was considered a boiling flood dangerous to navigate etc Tho third subject may be COLUMBUS TELLS HIS STORY TO THE KING AND QUEEN OF PORTUGAL Dwell upon his struggles and perso verance and picture the scene when the Queen pledged her Jewels to pay the expenses of the voyages and the difficulties of getting men and ships for so perilous an undertaking Let I this lesson close with all preparations complete the crowds on the shore the farewells etc The above Is sufficient to indicate the method of starting the little ones in the great subject of History If its followed faithfully It will bo a delight to both teacher and pupils and will never lose its fascination The I reason so many dislike the study is because they are given nothing but the dry bones of history memorizing areII I bel Let It be put In appetizing form land given in proper portions and it i Is

Fears In Blue Grass I The tobacco warts going on at full blast In spite of the efforts on all sides to stop It and the threats of the law against both sides The most Important developments of the week have been the threat of the Society of Equity to prosecute the trusts buyers for conspiracy and the report that the trust would go into tho tobacco raising business next year There have been a good many fears of raids In many parts of tho state and the panic has hit the Blue Grass hard There have been a galling gun and soldiers in Lexington and there have been fears for the safety of the tobacco storm in Bowling Green Cyn Ihlana Lebanon Flemlngsburg and several smaller places but there have been no raids The grand jury which was Investigating the Hopklnsvlll raid returned no Indictments because of It saying there was not sufficient evidence but giving tho impression that it was sand tho grand jury lack ed One man was Indicted as a day rider but that was all after the bUrn- Ing xof 200000 of property The trust has been hit a little insane points and has closed business at ML Sterling but on the other hand buying has gone on at a record break Ing pace at Lexington and at otter places The men who have lost tobacco thru the raids will have to suf fer heavily as the insurance companies say that there has been riot ren dering the policies void The case will be taken to the courts The State Union of the Society of Equity which held Its meeting at Can ltoreIlanddemnlng violence In the tobacco war and there was some talk of head Ing off raids Several wild speechesI were made In which dcmaed Gov Wlllsona charges and declared that tho society in Kentucky was greater than the Governor and that the national organization ecllp sod President levelt with Secro tary TAft thrown in Several mpvements were started to I end the war The Senate at Frank fort adopted a resolution providing for a joint committee to investigate the situation It was suggested that the war might be ended by allowing tho convicts to make twist and plug tobacco for the planters thus enabling them to fight the trust Conferences bare been held but to no purpose so far and there is great danger that the trouble will go oil for quitoa whileIt morermore a scatidal in th eyes of the world and taken with the Powers trial are giving the whole country the fooling that Kentucky is a wild and lawless state where there Is no Jus tice It will take the state a long while to recover from the bad repu tation she is getting The American Tobacco Company has ended all hope of an agreement by n letter to IL 1C Smith nwhlck it stands pat on the offer made at Win chester and says it sees nothing further to be gained by conferences 4 0 GOSSIP OF CAPITOL Entertaining Comment on Affairs i

Primary Election and the Senatorial Contest Prove Interesting Subjects of Comment Frankfort Ky Jan t51t Is an absolute fact that two Kentuckians In the same week have done the unheard of thing of declining an office with n salary of 2500 per year and traveling expenses attached to It Whether this Is a sign of a long cold winter an earthquake or some other dreadful happening Is not known of course but something else unusual Is bound to happen for such strange ovcntH never come singly C M Barrett of Ohio county and Stanley Mllward of Lexington both claimed the state flre marshals Job but Barrett was ap pointed Before he went to work how over ho found ho might bo unjustly criticised In his work because be In tho president of tho National Society of Equity and that society has a tOo bacco branch and the flee marshal would have to investigate tho burning of tobacco barns and warehouses by the night riders some of whom are supposed to be members of the Society of Equity Then the place WILl offered to Mr Mllward who had been turned down at first and wonder of wonders Mr Milward declined It Just think ot- a Kentuckian declining a good office like that It Is dollars to doughnuts though that the third man to whom It Is offered will take It and freeze to that twenty To hundred per like a duck to a doughpile The first bill Introduced In the present legislature was one to repeal tho dogtax law passed two years ago It was Introduced by Senator Smith of Knott county and the present senU ment of the legislature Indicates Its passage Tho doglaw proved both un popular and Ineffective Nearly every man that owned a dog has blasted the law and the assessors almost made It ineffective by falling to list the dogs for taxation For Instance In one county with a population of 20000 probably 2800 dogs would be listed and in an adjoining county with the same population and apparently as many dogs only 700 would be listed A legislative committee will proba 101baccotor Newman of Woodford has Intro duced a resolution providing for a committee of three senators and tour representatives to do the Investigating The resolution which will undoubted ly be adopted says Said committee shall report the conditions prevailing In this commonwealth before the or ganization of the Tobacco Trust the conditions prevailing after Its organization and before tho organization of the various tobacco societies tho con ditions since and In oven way try to reach a knowledge of the situation such as will enable this General Assembly to enact such laws as will pro tect the rights of our people If our present laws are Insufficient The committee shall also ascertain whether the 80callcd tobacco tnwt has the right to do business In this state when pursuing tho methods It has fol lowed for several years It shall also j ascertain whether any of our statutes are not enforced by the various offi cers of the commonwealth It shall make Investigation of whether ItI is legal anti practical to employ con vlcta In the manufacture of plug and twist tobacco j This is a sweeping resolution and the committee will have an enormous amount of work to do It It accom plashes anything Governor Wlllson is i working assiduously to suppress the night riders but they keep up here and there In various parts the state and burning tobacco ofII houses Soldiers are being In suspected towns and Gulling guns i are being placed In readiness to expected attacks by the night repelI There must be some cause for all troublesomebody has been doing wrong somewhere and ns a result the night riders are doing wrong now The tobacco growers feel that a crisis has arrived with them and that It Is of as much moment to them as throw- Ing the tea overboard in Boston harbor over a hundred years ago was to the American colonists Maybe this legislative committee may find tho seat of the trouble If overproduction has caused the low prices of tobacco the remedy Is to plant no crop this year If the tobae co trust has forced tho low prices to fatten Its dividends then the trust should be fined as Chief Justice OReas said till the Judgo Landis fine of 20000000 would look like 30 centsAn earnest effort will be made dur Ing the season to procure or take steps to a moro equitable system or taxation tor the whole state Looking g t II1 J to this end tho revenue and taxation committee of the State Development association has prepared a bill which proposes an amendment to Section 171 of the constitution which will enable some Tuture legislature to adopt a sys tem of what Is termed expensive tax atlon which will adapt Itself to the business conditions and changing sib nations of all classes of property In the state Of course the amendment will have to bo voted on by the people next November and It Is worded as follows Tho general assembly shall provide by law an nnnunl tax which with other resources shall be sulll cleat to defray tho estimated expenses of thocommonweallh for each year Taxes shall tie levied and collected for public purposes only and shall be uni form upon all property of the saint class subject to taxation within the territorial limits of the authority levying the tax and all taxes shall be luv led and collected by general warrants Tho power vested In till general as sembly to provide for taxation based on Income license and franchise maybe so exercised that such taxes may be In addition to or In lieu of ad valorem taxation upon such personal properly as may bo designated by the authority levying the tax In the lat ter event such personal property shall not bo subloot to assessment All taxes based on Income license or franchise shall be uniform on the same class of subjects within the territorial limits of tile authority levying the tax The general assembly shall hnvo power to divide property Into two clauses and to determine what class of prop erly shall be subject to state taxation and what class or classes of property shall bo subject to local taxation This amendment If adopted may lend to a system of taxation now in operation In Pennsylvania where farm lands are not taxed nl all for state purposes Kentucky has had more trouble and more legal controversies over Uic tax question than her staler states In the past decade and It Is believed this amendment to the consti prob10mto bear its proper proportion of the burden of taxation The expected deadlock over tho or rnnliatlon of the house of represents tires did not materialize and everything went through with smooth sail ing all the Democratic caucus nom moss being elected by a strict party vote Now tho question naturally arises what effect will tills have on the senatorial vote ExGovernor Bcckham and exGovornor Bradley are respectively the nominees of the Dem ocratic and H publlcan parties for United States senator and the legisla Republioansdesert Beekham else ho will be elect ed on the first ballot Beekham work ers say they are absolutely confident and havo no tear of pie result Brad leys friends say four or more Demo teats will not vote for Beekham and the consequent deadlock will result In the election of Bradley No one knows really what to expect but it is certain that It Beokham does not win on the first ballot a most exciting session of the legislature will follow and much needed legislation will bo neglected An Important bill that will be Introduced this cession wlDbe tho one pro viding a new method of holding state primary elections It will provide that both political parties must nominate all candidates for state offices on the same day and that day shall be gen oral registration day that the regis tratlon law shall be extended so that every voter In city town and country must register and

question I The direct argument of each of the parties hung together well The opposing arrays of facts and arguments were unusually strong nnd well bal anted Tho affirmative kept well to tho beaten paths and succeeded in marshalling Its arguments In a more forcible and telling manner while the negative pursued a somewhat more original course and presented a strong case but showed a weakness in its presentationThp i argument was made tho strong point by all tho speakers and little reliance was placed in the re buttal The combatants showed a de ceded eagerness to leave their en emy In possession of his own pecu liar field and to hasten to their own grpifnd and little effort was made to conceal the running off from tho parrying with the opponent to tile sate Held of tho set speech Good generalship requires the annihilation of every present danger before an ad vance fa mado In this way It camo about that convincing arguments launched by immediately proceeding opponents went entirely unchallenged until one and oven two intervening speakers of the same party had had an opportunity of refuting While the tone of the debate as a whole was not as strong as In some proceeding years yet the argument and the presentation were strong and worthy of tho men who took part ofIland pleasing Some hesitation made I Itself felt but this was partly at least mado good by good argument i Alpha Zetas ffrst speaker after Ja- I terpreting the question showedthat the proposed Federal Inheritance tax night be levied concurrently with the presentstate inherltaaoe taxes Sack a system Is

tho Supremo Court Tho affirma tive he said would prove first that the proposed tax is n just tax for the Federal government second that it would accomplish a muchneeded rev enue reform and third that It would bring about an Important social re tons Tho progressive Inheritance tax is Just in principle it Is wise simple and effective advocated by the great est economists and statesmen and oven by Andrew Carnegie and Jacob H Schlff it Is levied by the great nations of Europe and by thirtysix of our own states A Federal Inher itance tax would reach elusive interstate fortunes which can and do escape the state taxes The second speaker argued that Federal taxes on consumption are not levied according to ability to pay that 90 per cent of our taxes are paid by the 18000600 wage earners who re calve less than 400 a year Hence a tuIaUoD belmettax Intangible wealth also escapes tho state taxes and so tho sates need their inheritance taxes but wo 01112cwhile England obtains 2 and France over 1 Hence there Is plenty of room for tho Federal government to edIeralbe derived from this source Irrlga tion forestry the navy the Panama canal etc will require fabulous sums and our internal revenue will soon be curtailed by the rapid advance of Pro hibitionThe third speaker emphasized the fact that the states are unable to levy inheritance taxes high enough to af fect swollen fortunes Ho then show ed tho need of social reform 1 per cent of our population controls 81 per cent of our total wealth moreover tho fortunes to be feared aro not those that are mado but those that are Inherited J S Mills i an Inher- Ited fortune gives the heir an unfair advantage over his follows ho rarely uses It wisely society has a right to a part of this wealth Carnegie swollen fortunes are escaping taxation etc The Federal inheritance tax would not completely sqlvo this problem but it would be a corrective it would diminish largo inheritances more than small ones it would cause a breaking up of largo estates into smaller parts and it would increase gifts tocharity by exempting thom front taxation Tho negative had tho usual disadvantage of having to assume an argument for the affirmative for there wero no limitations put upon tho question However Phi Delta took a definite stand and had an outline worked out fa careful detail Alpha Zeta assumed that ono of the strong est arguments for the negative would bo that tho Federal government should not levy the tax because so ninny states already levy one That was entirely Ignored by the negative for they assumed as Alpha Zeta had as Bum d tho inheritance tax right in principle because it exists extensively that tho Federal government woii d adopt the tax for more or less of a different purpose With this In mind they strongly opposed tho princlples of tho tax especially that which the Federal government might levy Tho first speaker declared the tax unjust unAmerican and evolution ary for four reasons first because it could no b6 applied with uniform ity to individual estates second because Its uncertainty would make it detrimental to business third be cause it would Intrude upon the field of state taxation and fourth becaaeo It Weald be revolutionary la oeayte f 1- au tho right ot Individual ownership IB tho third point they did not argue that the tate might or should levy ax Inheritance tax but that tho Federal government would encroach upon In ternal state affairs The second speaker opened with rebuttal of Alpha Zetas second speceli on need of revenue reform by quotlac Aa1ipredictionrebuttal was Incomplete In that It did not reach all It might have opposed Ills main argument was that the Iahcrltnnco tax would not be feasible for the purpose proceed because a largo portion of It could be evaded by saleand by suppression of values by the administrator that collection would entail a vast amount of expense and machinery that the extensive sale of stocks necessary to collect Ute tax would endanger
