Superintendent of Schools tho first number of The Library Bulletin which it is in tended to issue annually from now on The object of tho Bulletin is to help public school teachers to take the proper steps toward establishing libraries for the use of their schools und to inspire them to efforts in that direction No inure valuable movement could be begun by Mr Crabbe and nothing a teacher could do would have greater value for hrs pu pile than to give them real acquaintance with books This is some thingwhich many so called educated men never getand yet it is the true value of an education A man who loves books who can get from them the wisdom stored up like honey jn a comb and transformv their dry lines into life past present and to como Ruch a man shares t the great thoughts of all generations he is fully alive to the lifeof the whole world he can reach out across the miles and tho ages and touch the great minds of all times he is really educated real ly cultured and be has sunk the roots of his soul deep into the fertile soil of the worlds winnowed wisdom Such a man can riso above temporary discouragements and canfin4 solace for griefs sympathy in triumph aud aid in his battles And any teacher who can really open to his pupils this wonderful world will do for them more than any man can ever do except the preachnr who first opens the doors of religion Every teacher should read tbru carefully this bulletin of Mr Crabbes It will help in many ways and suggestions made in it will show him how he can start BO bow humble he may be or how poor his school Parents andsellool trustees all who are in terested and are really trying to improve the educational chances in the neighborhood should get aud read the bulletin and then study a little and go out and get to work It ii too late to do anything for this school year but the time to begin getting ready for next summers school is right now and a good start now will mean goodwork then CANNONS YINQi6ATIoA One of the hottest fights of the recoil campaign centered about lira reelectkm of Joseph O Cannon to the House of Representatives of which he has long been Speaker nnd the tact that be won with a Majority ofabout 4023 baa made today people feel that he was com pletely vindicated As a matter of feet tho case is quite different whea it is looked Into carefully For while Taft carried Cannons dmtrkt by a larger majority thau Roosevelt did Cannons majority fell off 3400 and was actually 1400 less than Tafts majority in the district Similar results were shown in the Congressional races all over the country and men who have been identified with the present policy of Congress fighting the President and obstructing the reforms which be advocates have had their majorities cut down far more than the normal Republican reduction of last year while some of them have been defeated even in districts which Taft carried This can mean only one thing that the people are with Roose volt and Taft rather than with and that a persistent refus sal by Congress to see the I andritingon the wall will result in sud den punishment for some of the obstructionists The American peo pin has n ruling for Republicans and tVuunoUliko to put them out of allies but it is clear that if till politicians continue to defy the mandate giver by the people to Roosevelt anti Taft there will bo tro ble for them Fortunately the present Congress will end in eight weeks and we will get a new and wq will hope chastened body IN OUR OWN STATE Trouble In Bresthltt Hager Will not Pay Hargis Balled Smith Mystery ClearedKilling a Mystery TROUBLE IN BRBATllITTj A threatened fight in Breathltt blew over last week with the withdrawal of all charges against the members of both the Callahan and Deaton factions The trouble was started by the Dcatons who got out a lot of warrants against the Callahan Tho lat ter retorted In kind and at one tlmo both were in Jackson with arms and entrenched and there was danger of a bloody fight Finally friends arrang ed a compromise and had all war rants withdrawn Both factions then loft town but there js no telling how long tho truce will last as both are very bitter This has led to a movement started by tho Lexington Herald for abolishing Brcathitt Co and distributing Its territory among the surrounding counties hoping that they will be able to keep tho lawless element in order There seems to be more hope In the movement started In Jackson for the enforcement of the law There are several hundred members already and they are plan ning to work hard and have the promise of help from the judge HAGER WILL NOT PAY Judge Hager has declined to pay the short age caused by the stealing of Judge Qooo one ot his appointees He says the state will have to get Its money out of the banks that cashed the forged checks HARGIS BAILED Beach Hargls has been released on 25000 ball and will soon go to Hot Springs Ark for a short rest When he returns he will settle In Irvine he aysand will not go back to Jackson It Is pretty generally expected that he will be acquitted on the next trial SMITH MYSTERY CLEAREDW- E Smith the State University student who appearedfrom Lexington

will meet again on today for the real work of the session The first business will be to take up the matter of relief for the earthquake suf ferers In Italy and the second to consider the Presidents answer to the question as to what he meant by his reference In his annual message to the secret service men Pros RooseVelt with his usual fore sight and strength has gone ahead with relief measures without waiting shiploadsItaly by tho Navy Department arid other relief plans have been started Tho battle ship fleet which is now at Suez on its way back from the trip around the world has received hurry up orders and will be at Messina in a few days ready to land 5000 men- U they can bo used and will have provisions and hospital supplies In large quantities While a great deal hss been done there la no doubt that there will still be a large measure of relief which the Americans can give and it will be much more prompt because of the Presidents ac tion There is no doubt that Congress will for once drop its fight on Mr Roosevelt and approve his action in this case and it ia expected that it will vote about 800000 for use in re Itet work- The matter for the secret service will probably be ground for renewing the fight however Pros Roosevelt In his reply will say that there was ample grounds for his remarks and at the same time declare that the were not intended to reflect t on Con gress as a whole but only on certain members He will cite official cords ahd other documents to show that some of these men were really afraid of the secret service and had reason to be and ho will show in stances where the administration of justice and the punishment ot crimi nals havo been seriously hampere- by the new law He will not go be yond this unless Congress forces him to do so There 1s somo hope the few of the cleaner men Ia Con cress will make tho Investigation one and that before the figli Is over the government will be so strengthened that there will be less trouble In punishing lawbreakers Thi will only happen Jf a few Congressmen get a hard jolt however so it s hardly likely to como about The past week has been the most quiet slnco lost summer Mrs Alice Roosevelt Longworth the Presidents daughter had a narrow escape from elng run over the other day but vas not injured The President gave up his usual New Years holiday to work on earthquake relief plans and has been considerable commo lion here over the situation in China Otherwise there has been no activity and nothing has been dono at all af fecting the people of this country On Now Years Day the usual gen

beautiful driveway which led to the J B Towne mansion At tho door they were mot by Mr Towne himself and ushered Into n room at the rear on the ground floor Do pleased to sit down gentlemen ho said and in a few words 1 will lay the case before you Ho was a large stoopshouldered man of 60 cleanshaven with grim light eyes a flabby nervous upper lip n voice rich with good living and a peremptory manner which however he could change at will Into an appearance as winning as he pleased lie was very amiable and courteous now and the officers on this their firM personal meeting with the city magnate were ready to declare that his reputation belled him and that instead of being the harsh coldblooded and grasping monster general opinion represented him to be he was mlld mannered I do not wish to confide what has occurred to a telephone he contin ued and so asked you to call upon an unknown errand The fact Is He hesitated coughed and then went on Out let me begin at the right end of the story at tho beginning You noticed of course as you came along that there Is a high wall around my premises It Is of stone up to a height of seven feet and above that and over- topping It Is an impenetrable English thorn hedge which is four feet higher making a practicably impregnable protection for these grounds of eleven feet In height The gates which are loftier even than that are always locked at night and the porters lodge Is right beside them Nobody could enter that way unseen by him The house itself is wired throughout with a burglar alarm which rings In the dining room with n din that can be heard even to the limits of the park and to raise a window or open a door at least any of those which aro locked after we are secured for the night would bo to set this gong clanging The door to this room Is always locked It is as you can see the curio room full of valuable articles and Is thrown open but rarely I carry the key to It on my person con stantly The three windows are wired with the alarm and all are double locked Yet last night somebody got in here and took away five very valuable Chippendale chairs Mind you this was no small parcel to be tucked under the arm or Into the pocket but five goodsliod chairs which would furnish a load for a wagon And this he stepped forward and with a dramatic gesture drew the screen aside this Is all we have to Indicate how the thing was accomplishedFor the local police worked upon the mystery using every art known to detective annala Eventual ly however they called in Dr Furnl vallCome in said Mr Towne who was rubbing his eyes and looking con fusedly around as If he were just awaking from a sound sleep A maid entered and wlih great agitation lu her manner spoke a few words to her master in a lowtoned voice Mr Towne turned to Dr Furnlvall Doctor he said my sister who Is bedridden heard your ring and thought it was her own doctor For greatdislikethe maid says and fell into hysterics as soon as she heard the bell crying out that she wouldnt see him She is In the fit now and I wish you would sea what you can do for her Willingly Dr Furnlvall answered starting at once to follow the maid who led the way rapidly to an upper chamber Ten minutes afterwards as the detectives were questioning one of the servants the maid reappeared with a request from Dr Furnlvall that they could come with Mr Towne to the sickroom and upon hastily complying they found the doctor with his spectacles In his hand confronting the invalid who sitting erect In bed was staring Into his eyes yet with a look of deep abstraction on her face as if her vision were turned inward rather than outward and busy with the Images of her own mind alone Why thats tho first time she has sat up for began Mr Towne In as tonishment but the doctor raised his hand for silence cutting him off Will you please repeat Miss Towne Dr Furnlvall said to the pa dent what you have Just told me the reason why you dislike your doc torrShe was a very slight woman of 40 with weak eyes and a pallid skin which however flushed faintly as she commenced In n mechanical voice 1 tiers q acquainted with Dr Fnw CP advertisement in the papers in which he claimed to find and bring together soulmates I sent for him and be said It was through hypnotism that he worked and that I must submit my mind to his in order to accomplish results I allowed him to try several times to put me to sleep but ho did not succeed I felt not the least bit of Influence from his suggestions He said it was because I antagonized him In my thoughts and that I must give my mind wholly up to histhat is I must believe In him and his power no matter what he did He said that even if I should see him apparently commit a murder I should distrust my own eyesight knowing that it would be Impossible for him to do a wrong of any kind Until I reached that state of trust ho said my desires would never be satis fled but should be as soon as I had attained it So yesterday I pretended to fall asleep beneath his hands held my eyes fast shut even when be pricked me with a pin on the arm though It hurt me a good deal and drew long deep breaths as if I were really unconscious Presently I rea lized that be had loft the room but I expected him back immediately and so lay quite still hoping that some how he would be able now that I obeyed him so implicitly to bring me my future husband But after a long while I heard a noise that frightened mo for it came from the curio room beneath my own and I mew my brother was away and would be furl ous It anybody should go In there In his absence especially my doctor whom he disliked greatly and in scantly I felt the conviction that It was the doctor I forgot that I was sick and had been unable to leave my bed for so long a whole and sprang up threw on a wrapper and ran down stairs I had no consciousness of any pain or difficulty in walking My mind was filled wltjn a horror of I know not what I was one great fear all over I flew to the curio room and was just In time to see Dr Fawcott taking one of the Chippendale chairs through the open window to an automobile which stood In the driveway outside a very large touring car The day was rainy and rubber blankets coveredas he raised the edge to thrust It in 1 saw that the car was loaded with fur niture under the blankets I was on the point of crying out when it occurred to mo that Dr Fawcett was merelv testing my trust In him If I failed In that trust I should fall in my soul search So I returned to my room and again simulated sleep In a few minutes he returned and com manding me to awake said that at last he was satisfied with my progress and that all that was required was to clear the way of any materialists BO that my affinity might appear He said that the way was blocked by two dark persons who seemed in his visions to reside near a gate a porter and his wife ho said They must be called sway I mentioned our porter and he told me to order him and his wife to some distant part of tho place on some pretext or other and I did so sending a maid to them Then ho left me declaring that now my affinity would surely appear But ho did not como and after awhile I realized with humiliation that 1 had been duped that the doctor had stolen the chairs which were very valuable and taken them away 1 shivered with horror of what would happen If my brother should tied it out find out that my doctor against whom ho had warned me bnd done such a thing As he was the only stranger who had been here that day of course ho would be suspected as soon as the theft was die covered I must send this suspicion astray Again I ran down to tho curio room but now It was locked and 1 saw that Dr Fawcett must have had a false key I wrapped the first heavy thing I could find in a cloth to deaden the sound of breaking glass went outside broke the window raised It and got back safely to my room I knew my brother would not be homo until late at night and proha bly would not look Into the curio room at all before retiring merely making sure as he always did that the door was test Then tho next morning he would think the theft was committed In the night When tho bell rang Just a wbllo ago 1 could not bear tho thought of meeting again that man who Dr Furnlvall turned his eyes from her to the Infuriated brother and she stopped speaking at once Dont bo harsh with her the doc tor whispered She Is diseased not herself and no more to be blamed than a lunatic Get a good doctor for her The fact that she can walk when In excitement Is hopeful The Northbrook Downs chief of po lice recovered the chairs and cap tured the thief just as ho was taking a steamer tor Europe But the dis gruntled officer never was satisfied with this disposal of the case It was another man that he wanted Copyright 1903 by W O Chapman Copyright In Great Britain CHIEf SAYS HOUSE- MISUNDERSTOOD Message to Lower Branch on Secret Service BIG STICK FALLS ON FOUR Hamptons of Provision to Limit Scope

placo limitations upon the scope of the secret service T president also declared that the Interpretation of the house of the secret service dance In his last message was misunderstood end had there been any evidence which would point to the neces sity of an Investigation of members such evidence would long ago have bun turned over to the proper authorities The message was In answer to the res elution transmitted from the hcuse In which the representatives naked tar evi dence upon which Mr lloonevelt based his statements that the chief argument In favor of the provision was that the congressmen did not themselves wish to be Investigated by secret service men For the Ananias Club The message In part I am wholly at a loss to understand the concluding portion of the resolution I have made no charges of corruption agftlnut congress nor against any member of the present house If I had proof ol such corruption affecting any member of the house In any matter as to which the federal government has jurisdiction ac tion would at once be brought as was done In the eases of Senators Mltehell and Burton and Representatives Wit liamson Herrman and Drlgg at differ ent times since I have been president This would simply be doing my duty In the execution and enforcement of the laws without respect to persons nut 1 do not retard It as within the province nr the duties of the president to report to the house alleged delinquencies of members or the supposed corrupt ac tion of a member In his official capac ity The membership of the house Is by the constitution placed within the power of the house alone In the prose cution of criminals and the enforcement of the laws the president must resort to the courts of the United States In the third and fourth clauses of the preamble It In stated that the meaning of my words Is that the majority of the congressmen are In fear ot being Inves tigated by secret service men and that congress as a whole wu actuated by that motive In enacting the provision In question and that this Is an Impeach ment of the honor and Integrity of the corereps These statement are not I think In accordance with the farts Misunderstood He Cayt This allegation In the resolution therefore must certainly be due to an entire falure to understand my message The resolution continues That the president be requested to transmit to the house AnY evidence upon rVhlrh he based his statements that the chief argument In favor of tho provision was that the congressmen did not themselves wish to- M Investigated by secret service men This statement which was an attack upon no one still less upon the congresa Is sustained by the facts If you will tarn to the Congressional Tleeorrt for May 1 last page BMS to fiord Inclusive you wilt find

Messrs Par sons Rennet and Drlscoll were the lead ers of those who opposed the adoption of the amendment and upheld the right of the government to use the most efficient means possible In order to

ask In the name of good government and decent administration In the name of honesty and for the purpose of bringing to justice violators of the federal laws wherever they may be found whether In public or private life that the action taken by the house last year be reversed When this action was taken the senate committee under the lead of the late Senator Alll son having before It a tronglXworded protest from Secretary Cortelyou like that he had sent to Mr Tawney accepted the secretary views and the senate passed the bill In the shape presented by Senator Allison In the conference how ever the house conferee Insisted on the retention of the provision they had In sorted and the senate yielded The chief of the secret service Is paid a salary utterly Inadequate to the Impor tanco of hll functions and to the admir able way In which he has performed them I earnestly urge that It may be Increased to J6000 per annum I also urge that the secret service be placed where It properly belongs and made a bureau In the department of justice AS the chief of the secret service has repeatedly requested but whether this is done or nut It should be explicitly provided that the secret cervlc can be used to detect and stunlsh crlmi wherever It Is found THEODORE ROOSEVELT It A NATIONAL PERIL Consumption of Liquor In America Is Appalling Tho wine product of the world In now

Booo was shown up as a systematic thief are arguments In favor of what Mayor Clarence Woods of Richmond has Intended for a long time A new system of book keeping In municlpaltles as well as in the State should bo adopted Under our present system It is abso lutely Impossible to keep track ot the transactions that occut ln which cities towns or the State itself may not be defrauded It tho officers are dishonest We were In our County Clerks office the other day and County Clark Black showed how easy It Is for a clerk in his office to cheat the Commonwealth If ho were GO disposed Ho showed us his license book in which there is a stub and tho blank licenses The applicant for license pays his money and tho blank Is filled and delivered to him His license may be for something for which he pays as much as two hun dred dollars In filling the stub the I clerk may write that the Icenso was for something else and the char ges for same much less The clerk settles by what the stub shows and he can pocket the difference Since Judge Booes speculations have been exposed maybe Mayor Woods ar guments will be listened to MAIL ORDER MENACE- How the Cash Retail Trade Is Being Drawn Cityward THE LURE OF THE CATALOGUE Amazing Growth of Dig City Concerns That Drain the Country of Money Which Should Be Spent at Home How the Evil May Be Combated In Maxwells Talisman are tho fol lowing remarks on tho mall order bust ness by Richard Hamilton Byrd It Is a recognized fact that tho retail business of the country villages and tbo large towns for that matter Is be- Ing destroyed Year by year the once prosperous merchants nro being forced to tho wall driven out by the mall or der business And this Is taking placa In face of the fact that the population and purchaslug power of the country districts are ever on tho increase What is the matter The mall order houses nro drawing the cash retail trade from Its natun1 channels to the cities The growth of this octopus line been phenomenal Front a Jellylike Idea without form an experiment fifteen years ago It has grown to proportions that threaten the extermination of tho retail country merchant An Idea of the way the money of the people is being drawn into this mall order trade can be had from the reports of some of theso houses- A certain mall order house of Chi cago which began with a few thou sand dollars fifteen years ago now carries a capital stock of 000OGO and has arranged to Increase that stock to 40000000 It docs a busi ness of 5000000 a month and earns a net profit of 3000000 a year Like the patent medicine business the mall order business depends on the gullibility of the general public Thousands of people every week send In their bard earned cash to some mall order house In payment for goods that could have been bought cheaper at their home store Why do they do It It Is owing averaJCj1crsOI1to the effect of persistent advertising The mall order house sends out Its at tractive literature to every family In the country In this literature com posed of well Illustrated catalogues and cheap mngasine known as mall order papers the goods are set out in tho most attractive manner It Is tempting bait nnd the halt bite All of these millions come out of the legitimate trade of the country mcr chant the man who has invested his capital built hlnioir n home and been active In building up tho town with tho expectation tint ho would be allowed to do n legitimate business In nIlegitimate way He Is entitled to trade of his town nnd the country ad jacent He pays his taxes and con tributes to the support of the commu i pity That community owes him n reciprocal duty the duty to give him the preference of trade everything else being equal This Is the theory of nil organized civilized communi ties beginning with the family and going on up through every organiza lion to that of the state Home pro fiction from foreign robbers Is the first duty of every soot citizen If the village nud town Ufa that has grown up under uaturnl laws of trade Is to be maintained tho retail business must be preserved against the unfair Inroads of the mall order business And this cnn be done only by organiza lion and education Let the people know the facts about the mall order business and the offerings on the altar of credulity will grow beautifully less An Example Worth Following The Country Club of Wore County was recently organized at Waycross Ga for the purpose of securing an or Ranted movement for improvements says the Good toads Magazine Each member of the stub pledged himself to plant 210 trees of some sort so that they will tako root this winter and have them ready for transplanting along the public road closest to his homo next fall Among the members Is Judge Warren Lott chairman of the board of county commissioners and he hns promised that the county will have the trees planted next fall by the prang and replant those that die each year It Is figured that 210 trees will plant a mile on both sides of the road John W Greer of Waycross has been pushing tile Inorementji Brookline Mass n village of 20 000 Inhabitants noted for Its magnifi cent homes and still more

Erratic elevations of short duration do not Indicate a reaction Tho slight Variations caused by the weather the drinking of cold water or the Irregular handling In applying the test are as apparent in the tem perature records of the non react1ng cows as In the others and a compari son of the temperatures of the ani mats which show no indication of a reaction should bo taken into account in interpreting the records In case of doubt the animal should bo sep arated from the herd and retested not sooner than a month- If a Largo Proportion of tho Herd Is Found to Bo Diseased In this case If the reacting animals are valuable breeders they may be Isolated and kept for breeding purposes by remov ing the calves at once and feeding Inje cling Tuberculin than than them on milk of healthy cows or on sterilized milk of their mothers This Is called the Bang method a procedure devised by Prof B Bang of tho Copenhagen Veterinary college The method Is as follows 1 Test every animal in the herd with tuberculin 2 Remove the reacting animals and keep them Isolated so that the dls ease can not be transmitted to the healthy animals either by contact by the attendants or by the same feed ing or drinking utensils 3 Disinfect the stables to pre vent transmission of tho germs left by the infected animals 4 Test the healthy herd with tu berculln regularly to detect any case that may develop and remove such an imals before tbvr spread the disease Disinfect again 5 Remove the calves from the diseased herd at birth and feed them milk from the healthy cows or milk from the diseased cows which has been thoroughly pasteurized heated to 185 degrees Fahrenheit As the sound herd Is replenished tho Isolated cattle may if desired be fattened and killed under proper in Bpectlon for beer Feeding the Dairy CalrIn a recent address H D Griswold LaCrosse county Wisconsin gave his method oi feeding the dairy calf I feed a little calf some food Jnst as soon as it li old enough to take it and I keep It growing not on fattening food like cornmeal but on such feeds as bran and oats a little bit of oil meal a lit tic ensilage a little clover hay etc You will bo surprised how soon calves will cat It We teed them new milk for the first two or three weeks and then gradually work off Into skim milk putting a little skim milk with the new milk adding more gradually until finally we feed all skim milk keeping It up until they are six or eight months old giving about six pounds at a feed If they are yet hun gry they get to eating something olso so much the quicker Three Best Farm Machines I conVsider the three best machines for the farmer today writes a correspondteat of Farm and Home are t that sows the grain nnd turns the earth nil one way thereby saving tho farmer half his labor and doing tho work better the manure spreader which saves labor odd does better work and the twine Hinder which does the same thing They are trip lees that have never been duplicated on the farm Of course the threshing machine Is also a special neces sity but that is a neighborhood ma chine Instead of being for tho Indi vidual farmer Remember OthersItis not pos sible to do good for others without do- Ing good for ourselves and It Is not possible to neglect others without losing everything that makes life worth while Q O ro oio a Otio aueUO OO allcro o u80 tu u uewdutu t East Kentucky
