His Friends Now Afraid of Nothing but Money Some Alroady Being Used By tho tlmo that this issue of The Citizen reaches Its readers most of th campaign In tho 27th District will bo over All tho evidence will bo In and tho voters will bo making up their minds If they havo not dona so already It Is time to stop and see what has been proved on each skis Wo will glvo Mr Lewis tho first chance Ho has made a campaign in whlah ho has thrown more mud and made moro charges which have been proved untrue and which he must have known were untrue than has ever boon soon In this part of tho state before To bo sure ho has found and attacked some real faults In the Judge every man has his faults and Mr Faulkner Is human but Mr Lewiss proved charges have all been very old Ho proved that Mr Faulkner play ed cards eight years agothat he has taken a drink now and then and so forth Ho has not shown that Faulk ner was ever under the Influence of liquor or that ho has played cards In recent years There have been a few mistakes In court rulings and a few cases whore tho Judge has lost his temper or said unnccccssarly sharp things proves but It Is greatly to the credit of tho Judge that unI der all this fireat a time when opponents have used every and stooped to any dirt which they thought might hurt him they have not been able to prove any thing more serious than this They have Jtnd to tall back on the oharge that Mr Faulkner Is a hypotrlte that lie note right but his heart is wrong that ho drinks when nobody can see him and plays cards when no ono U around These charge cannot be answered they cannot be proved and they have been thrown out entirely In hopes that they will fool a tow voters No man can tell what another man think no man COR tell what another will do when atone and for our part ware willing to trust the man who acts right la public and with the public and who does his whole duty by th peoplo rather than tho man who openly wicked and corrupt and to make It appear that ho is virtuou- beeauso ho does not deny the vices which he cannot hide Faulkner may bo bad but ho acts right That 1 all Lewis has proved On tho other side the attack has been mush more effective evoml things have been proved whleh Mr Lewis has not trlod to deny and some things which ho has don ltd arc known to be true The Citizen started out with the Idea that Mr Lowte was a pretty good man In bad eompnuy We have hall to change our opinion If he is good ho hides f pretty will Tile first thing proven was that ho Is atlll a heavy drinker Ho told the editor of Tho Citizen last September that ho had not had u drink In tour years Well ho has been drinking pretty steadily ever since And when accused ot It ho said In a public speech that ho had always drunk all ho wanted to when ho wanted to and whenever ho wanted to and ho hoped ovory other man would do the soma Of course ho was pretty full and InI whiskey country or ho would not have said that but ho did say It and it does not seem qulto the right thing for a man to say who Is looking for a chance to enforce tho laws against tho uso of whiskey Tho second point was his defalca tion as sheriff ot Leslie County That Is well known to have been caused by drink As It took place a long time ago it might havo been easily overlooked If Lewis wore sober now but his conduct in this campaign has shown that tho bottlo has as great a hold over him as over for ho has not been ablo to let it alone even during the tow weeks of tho canvass when it meant so much to him to bo able to stay sober Tho third point ho made against Mr Lewis has not been made by Faulk ner but by Lewis himself Lewis has not made either a conoistentoraclea canvass lie has told one story In ono placo and another elsewhere Noth ing could have been stronger for tem perance than his speech at tho McKee courtbut ho Is an open whiskey main n Knox County Ho may either or against whiskey but which ever b Is ho has been trying to fool a largo

have been brought thru a period of danger and depression both financial and moral and can now look ahead on the unhindered road of progress This is the Nations day of rujoioiiig and we all forgetting our private troubles should rejoin nud givo thanks together for tho merci 8 that have been shown to this people nnd that we are permitted to live in so splendid a countyat so wonderful tine Surely there is no road to such cause for thankfulness farther than thistho there are many further causes KEEP THE SCHOOLS UP Tho educational rally which is planned by State Superintendent Crabbu for thooostern end of Kentucky for next week is ono of the most important movements of the year nnd ovoryLana ought to get out to the speaking Thoro is great need for improvement of the schools and there is also need for treat improvement in our use of the schools There la hardly n district in which children are not staying at home who ought to be in the schoolhouse There are tinny districts when the attendance has become so small that school has closed and the state is paying out good money to teachers while tho citizens are got ting nothing for it How can we ask the state for better facilities when vu fail to make use of time OUCH we now have l Let us begin the great educational rally by filling the schoolhouses and making the teachers earn their money WHAT A JUDGE MAY DO FOR YOU Tho evidence w about nil given in the judges race in the 27th District and most of the voters will have made up their minds about it before the next issue of Tho Citizen reaches them This race is much more important to every man in the district than the race for President was and there aro several things that every man ought to think over well before he casts his ballots The matter ought to be entirely one of character Most of the todwhat they are going to dotht float knows where to look for money but the honest men without whom neither side can win have got a harder question to decide Some of them have personal grievances or think they have and may be templed to vote one way or the other because of them Out tho average voter honestly trying to do his duty will have to decide n series of questions about like these Which man can 1 trust best to decide between me and my neigh bor who has trespassed on my property or injured itT Which can I best trust to give me justice against the man who has stolen from me or ruined my business or burned my store or cheated mo or corrupted my boy with whiskey f Which can I trust to judge righteously between me and the man who has wounded or killed my son or brother or father Which can I trust to decide between mo and the man who has stolen my wife or ruined my daughter i 0Which one if I get into law will it be easiest for the other fel lows to see and arrange things with l Which one will I most trust and respect as judge and which will lawbreakers fear most i theneno againsaEDITORIAL SENTENCES 1Lewis says that limo Faulkner acts right he is bad insiden hypocrite This charge of hypocracy is easily made by anyone and is usually brought by men against other men they know nre better thou themselves It has been made against every great nnd good man in history Washington Lincoln Roosevelt It is ono that can not possibly be disproved but is cheap and easy to make Mr Lewis In making it shows that ho has no serious charges that can be Ever man is entitled to bo b his acts It is no Mr Faulkner is admitted by his worst enemies to have been tho best judge the district lias ever had Why replace him with n man wbatieeuis unable to keep sober Isnt it about time that Mr Lewis was nneivering some of those questions Tho Citizen asked l Either ho has no answer or is afraid that if he put it In print that Citizen will expose it for ho has not shown any sign of accepting our odor of printing it for him It is too bad that Judge Faulkner is not an angel but is that any reason why we should vote for Lewis f If n man cannot keep sober even six weeks while he is running for office do you think his promise that he will keep sober six years in office is worth much i If you are on the same side ns tho whiskey men and tho float why certainly vote for Lewis Abraham Lincoln once told a friend that he ought to vote against his own father if the interests of tho country demanded it And yet Lewis thinks that a smooth smile and au oily jmudshake will get a majority of the voters of tho 27th District to vote against their own interests Lewis nnd his friends have mado a lot of charges mostly untrue against Tho Citizen and its editor but thoy have not tried to answer its arguments That is because they dont like the true answer Honest men cannot win in politics unless tho other honest men voto against tho briberwho will also turn out to bo the grafter When a roan cannot stick to the same when he goes from a dry district to ono where there is n lot of whiskey do you really think his record on tho bench will hang together for six years i The Citizen wishes to repeat the reasons which led it to support Judge Faulkner We believe in putting out whiskey in enforcing nil laws without regard to wealth or influence in honest elections In preventingmob law iu quick trials and decent behavior by men in public office Wo do not believe that Judge Faulkner has done these things per fectly or will do them perfectly and we should be glad to support a believe he will do these things a great deal better than Mr Lewis can do them Wo believe that Mr Faulkner will make a much better Judge and that the interests of tho district will be much safer in his hands therefore wo are for him Ho has given us neither money nor favor and we do not feel that he owes us anything we are working whenever we against the over manage to get on the side of the people we would bo for him i IN OUR OWN STATE Judge BOOR Arrested Charged With Defalcation Jealous Woman Kills Rival Pooled Tobacco Sold for 12250000 JUDGE BOOB ARRESTED

0 The American Thanksgiving day is without doubt the offspring of that feast which In England is known as Harvest Home and in Scotland Is called Mell Supper But the giving of thanks to some god at the close of the autumn season for the fruits of the earths ageless and can be traced back as far as civilization goes In Exodus the Israelites are com manded to keep an autumnal feast more explicit do tails for such a feast being given In the Book of Leviticus The feast was to last seven days and on the first day the people were to gather boughs of cedars and willows of the brooks It may be from this custom that the presont day decoration of churches with greens and vegetables troso Herodotus mentions this autumn custom of thanksgiving and Homer writes that cakes and lumps of dough thrown at the head of the sacri ficial victim formed a part of the Greek offerings to Apollo the sungod at the feast of the ingathering In ancient times Apollo received the honors of the harvest festival but the rustics sacrificed to Vacuna the god dess Images of Vacuna wore madu of straw wheat barley and rye and wore carried about with singing and cheering Even now In England Im ages made of straw crowned with flower are occasionally carried about and called Ceresthe goddess of asrfciil vare Apollo was formerly worshiped in Britain and the Maypole is a pretty relic of those days They decorated it with garlands to welcome the northward coming of Apollothe sun at whose appearance the flowers and fruit began to grow Various customs all containing the same Idea have prevailed in different countries In Scotland when tho reapers have finished their work a small package of corn called the Corn Lady is hung up in the house The ancient Egyptians offered sacrl fices and made offerings nt corn and wino to Leith the mother of the sun Wheat according to both sacred and secular history was the most ample tant grain grown la Egypt and tbo mode ot harvesting U Is Interestlag e Insteadof the usual methM the realer cut the straw just blow tbo eat of corn It was carried In bags to the threshing floor whore It was trodden out by oxen Sometimes the wheat I wu romped In the usual way tad bound up In sheaves but oxen were always employed to separate the wheat from the straw What is known as the shouting of tho churn comes down from the time when Apollo was worshiped in Eng land The churn or kern means a ring or circle formed by several persons holding bands The word churn also signifies a chaplet worn around the head or carried suspended on a pole in procession So the shouting of the churn means the merriment that always accompanied wearing a chaplet or dancing in a circle Another old custom Is the kemp Ing of England In Scotland called a mell Mell Is sometimes spelled melee which Is better as a melee or row often resulted from contend Ing for leadership in dispatching the last days work in the field Each reaper left a handful of the harvest uncut and the bonniest lass was al lowed to gather these handfuls and to make out of them a corn baby This was brought home in triumph set up In the feast and preserved for the remainder of the year The lass was called the harvest queen Sometimes instead ot being made into a doll the products pf the field would be formed into a mare and the reapers would awus6 the guests by trying to cut di wn the mare with their sickles The man who succeeded In the undertak- Ing would declare what should be done with the mare Thanksgiving Toast benIgnIglassLtOod bless our sweethearts yours and mine pineDeThanksgiving day nineWhenshine

Though Americans aro not all agreed as to what really is or ought to bo our national anthem It is reason ably sure that the popular choice would not fall upon Hall Columbia Yet that was the song selected by the Japanese to welcome the American fleet and tho Japanese are generally a discriminating people And In truth they only followed tho European custom in this for Hall Columbia Is usually tho tune played upon offi cial occasions abroad when It is desired to compliment tho United States It could hardly be otherwise be cause of all our socalled national music nail Columbia is tho only tuneexcepting Dixie and the songs of the civil warof American origin The tune we call America Is only God Save the King and that be longs to Great Britain The Star Spangled Banner is also an English

mine own Tawdry as It Is our title to It is clearoven clear er than that of the Red White and Dluef1J1d this Is probably one rea son why It is everywhere recognized as distinctively American Tho Red White and Blue Is In some respects a better tune but The Star Spangled Banner Is by so much tho best of the group that It has grad ually gained acceptance to the exclu sion of the others It Is hard to sing but glorious for tho band and noth ing Is likely to drive It out Certain ly national anthems never can be made to order If prizes would produce one we should have plenty to choose from But national music Is growth not a manufacture nnd having no body of folk song to draw upon wo have to depend upon tho popular ac ceptance of soma tune that may bavo had only an accidental association with any patriotic aspiration Balancing a Flying Machine The balancing of a flyer may seem at first thought to be a very slmplo matter yet almost every experimenter had found In this the one point which bo could not satisfactorily master Many different methods were tried Some experimenters placed the center of gravity far below the wings In the belief that the weight would naturally eeek to remain at the lowest point It was truo that like the pendulum It tended to seek the lowest point but also like the pendulum It tended to oscillate In a manner destructive to all stabilityA satisfactory system espe cially for lateral balance was that of arranging tho wings In the shape of a broad V to form a dihedral angle with the center low and the wingtips elevated In theory this was an automatic system but In practice it had two serious defects First it tended to keep the machine oscillating and sec ond its usefulness was restricted to calm air Century Mnrnrljm How He Registered

steady fight to save himself from appetites which had a stronger bold on him than he had realized Ho pulled his hat down over his eyes and slid down In the car seat moody and unhappy- A man sat down beside him Ho was good natured and talkative but his good nature was partly artificial for he had been drinking Marcey sat partly close to men and partly because ho bad learned In his years as a com martial traveler how to get on pleas antly with men of all sorts In a lit tle while ho knew tlw whole story of his companions life It was n sad story The man was going to a home wrecked and ready to

advice ot anyou but themselves A greatQnd spice did commission in 123 gathered the best sort of information for Congress and yet the Tariff ot 1SS3 was notoi lously an empty farce The truth Is that the congressmen for each stato know that they can got tariffs whit will help the business men In their particular district by voting for similar high and perhaps unnecessary tarltf for other congressmens district Thus the tariff Is finally adjusted In such n way that one neighborhood pays n- high price for several commodities Iin order that other neighborhood may be compelled to pay a high price for 1U protected products Now the great question which Is agitating the minds of politicians horo la whether Mr Taft will have a rlem ly or a hostile Congress The lions tenders known as the Cannon crowd are opposed to two things which Taft and Roosevelt deelre namely nn honest and thorough tariff rovlsloi and laws appropriating money to SMO our forests and our water power right on Ute great rivers But the Hou ring have been made to feel that their methods are arousing alarm among the voters all over the country Therefore it Is probable that they wl offer to bo Just good enough so that It will not pay the President to tight them by trying to elect another Spook er In ute plaw ot Mr Cannon It Is to be hoped that the ringleaders In the House will consent to the idea at Mr Taft so that a conflict wil be avoided The noxt fortnight Will determine this matter The work of Uio earning short sea ion will bo mainly to enact appropriation bills- President Roosevelt would like to lave some labor laws passed befoti 10 loaves the White House but the natter of satisfying the demands at irganlsed labor is too Important aINI 00 difficult to be successfully hand led In the time which remains to the recent administration- The President has high hopes of con rlbutlng a new bureau to the nationa- lovemmentThe Bureau of Public health Also he will ask help foe his plans for the conservation of national resources such as forests stone coal etc But the groat difficulty Is that no definite program has been arranged to press upon Congress in re and to this matter As to the Cabinet under Taft it is being said that Mr Root is so badly ceded at the present critical period of our negotiation with Japan that he will not be allowed to resign and- o Into tho Senate It Is said that Secretary Metcalf of tho Navy re igned because he sympathizes with the critics of naval construction whom the President will not listen to But tills Is conjecture Bad health Is the cause openly assigned It is rumored that exSenator Jos IL Millard of Nebraska who worked with Tart In obtaining the control of Panama for the United States may get the Treasury portfolio He Is a personal friend ot

contented he asked the traveler Of course not answered tho tray elor i should consider myself lack lug in spirit if I were satisfied And did not want to rise higher In Iltll I shall never be contented

Lori to speak of liter nl fire Literal fire could net only on material bodies but the devil and his angels have no such bodies and yet we arc told that they arc to suffer the torments of eternal fire Neither do we suppose that streets ot gold and gates of pearl constitute the essential clements of heaven but they are symbols of the purity of heart and life and the glory of the environment of its blessed inhabitants In like manner the material descriptions of hell are the best pictures of the un utterable wretchedness of its guilty subjects We speak of hell as a plan but its essential ell meuts as we have already implied are found in the inward conditions and not the outward circumstances The external and material description is the reflection of the internal and spiritual condition If we study carefully the account of mans creation we shall see that his soul was made in the imago of God and that it partakes of Gods immortality When God breathed into him the breath of life and he became a living soul ho partook of the immor tality of the Creator himself To assume that when eternal death is threatened annihilation is de clared is to rob the word of God of its glory and language of its true significance We know that the world is to be burned up but wo know also that combustion is not annihilationI In no instance are we warranted in saying that God will over destroy a human soul lie certainly does not destroy Satan Nowhere nre we taught that death is a cessation of being Annihilation furthermore is contradictory to all the passages of Scripture which represent punfsh ment as eternal The interpretation which closes hell closes heaven The exegesis which would end the sufferings of the lost must endalso the blessedness of the saved the reasoning which would matte the sufferings of the wicked cease would bring the existence of God to an end Selfish Egotismand Murder By UGO OJETTI Tamest ItiUin KiTiUiL Which is tho more respected a deceived husband who puts his wife

instinct of respect for human life except in the fleeting intoxication of passion is profound unconquerable constantly watchful because it is foundedon tho most reasonable of selfishnesses love of ones own self So long as the struggles defends himself despairs and especially declaims the listening crowd is moved But when he has returned to his normal life nnd with his emotions the emotions of the spectators have diedout then the assassin even though acquitted and applauded becomes again merely an is lie excites n shud der which is a form of potential fear and is stronger than all grandiloquence about his honor and his crimes of honor It is even felt that honor is nothing but n rhetoric veil ofegotism that the hero is rather he who in battle has killed thousands of persons in defense of our lives our possessions our present and future peace and never the wretched man who has slain to defend his own caprice his own passion his own pride his own property Such a man then

tICain Affection writes of tho ourlous charm used by the women of Morocco Moorish women roeort touch to charms to gain lovers or to keep tbolr affections when gained Thoro Is one charm which II seldom known to fall It consists of shred ding a small piece of an undergarment which tho man has worn and after certain incantations have been said over It ot rolling tho particles into the shape of a small ball This Is em bedded in a larger ball of clay and aft er being slightly dampened It Is kept in a pot ovor the embers of live char coal I have boon assured that as soon as tho heat penetrates tho clay the man whoever he may be will lay aside whatever work he Is doing at the time and fly to the arms of the woman who invokes the charms AI long as the ball Is kept warm to long will the heat of lovo burn In the heart of the lover for that woman Another spell much resorted to Is cast by cutting off the tips of a donkeys oars oooking them and mixing them la the mans food Ho then becomes as
