Following Is a portion of a letter written by Mr Henry Isaacs of Duck Creek to his son who Is hero In school telling of tho burial et James Ross thcro The story of tho i burial seemed unusually interesting and Tho Citizen secured permission to I print It Wo all got back this evening from James Ross burying You have heart perhaps through tho papers that Jim Ross killed himself in Cincinnati lost Thursday by shooting himself through tho head Ho left several letters addressed to his father and others stating that ho was tired of living and giving no other reason for his rash act There was a host of people at tho burying Ho was burled on top of that high point In front of William Ross door Tom Qullllu hauled tho corps and just as ho got to tho top of the hill some ono raised a flag and tho mules took fright and ran away going down toward the road leading up to Mrs Pcb worths They wero stopped at tho fence on tho roadside happily tho wagon did not turn over neither was tho corpse thrown from the wagon No damage was dono ex cept the lid of the coffin was thrown off Tho bleached countenaccs of men and tho wild shrieks of women and children were indeed appalling The whole crowd was wonderfully excited Jim Ross and Kate Prlco wero married tho 8th of last September In Richmond Iy but none of his people knew it until recently She was with him In Cincinnati and they wero preparing to go to Kansas when ho shot himself Jim was 23 years old and was as you know a nice young man had served three years in tho regular army- Newspapers In Manuscript Regularly prepared manuscript sheets were circulated as newspapers in China Rome anti Venlco long before tho Invention of printing PRESIDENT AND CONGRESS For seven years President Roosevelt has been trying to do what no other President has ever succeeded in doing make Congressmen pass legislation for the good of the whole people instead of regarding their woll paid jobs in tho National Capitol as private snaps and spending their time trying to get rich and fix things so that their friends could get richallat the expense of the people Mr Roose volt has had a remarkable successhe has forced Congress much against its will to pass legislation which should have been put thru years ago He has driven and bulldozed and bullied Congress into the paths of righteousness He has not beep wholly dignifiedhe has sometimes gone beyond his own proper authority and he has made a groat many very able enemies Now at last Congress thinks it has a chance to get even No man has ever been so feared by Congress as Roosevelt has He has spoken the truth without fear and no timeserving politi clan likes that He has drawn the line of political honesty clearly and the politicians do not like that either He has worked for the people and they do not like that either Now when his term is about over they think that he is losing his power to hurt them andhare at last during for the first time to show clearly how bitterly they have disliked doing what little good they have done There is no need to go into each of the subjects on which Congress has tried to pick a quarrel In each of them Congress has been wrong at the start and the President has shown it Congress sitting in judgement on itself solemnly declares that it is innocent of the charges which he has made to stand out as clearly as black from white Congress its own judge decides that tho President must be more respectful even to its members who do not deserve respect and that he must not say unpleasant things about their faults But Congress has not up to date brought up a single fact in reply to the Presidents attacks or shown a single place where he has misstated the truth or wronged any man Congress must be asleep to think that tho people of the country can he deceived so easily It is true that the papers belonging to the Congressional faction are breaking all records trying to mislead the people but they are failing as they have failed before loose velt has been tried and is known Congress alas is also known The people are with Roosevelt as they have shown every time he hue come up for a and they will remain with him The truths which ho is uttering are stronger than the evasions of Congress and will prevail in the end and Congress cannot possibly sully the honor a of the President with its spepchmaking and pitiful attempts at appearing innocent and dignified The sooner Congress eees this the better it will be for all concerned MORE RESOURCES NEEDED The panic and hard times of last year are about over and there is every evidence that prosperity is cowing back to the whole country The mountains of Kentucky suffered perhaps more severely than any other section largely because there was added to the natural hard times a shortage in the corn crop When the hard times took away the market for timber products and the dry spell ruined the Blue Grass market for cattle and the corn crop went short the resources of the mountains were all hit and it became difficult to make money any where ru other parts of the country men turned front one thing to another and if one crop failed why another produced well so that on the whole the farmers of the country had a good year and have not felt the hard times The fact that the mountains 8ufTercdmore than their share proves that more kinds of business more sources of money making are needed here If there had been large forage crops such as alfalfa or cowpeas or soybeans we could have fattened our own cattle and kept the price up If there had been a lot of sheep raised we could have lived on the proceeds of wool If there had been more of the fireside industry more making of the old fashioned bed covers and homespun rugs which bring such high prices in the cities there would have been another defense against the hard times fu short every additional form of money making would have helped stave off hardship and contributed to the prosperity of the mountains Our resources are now too narrow and they are growing worse i Corn raised again and again ou the same land makes it poorer and poorer such already the mountain lands have reached a point where many of our best young men are leaving home to find a good living Rotation ofcrops would help a great deal and at the same time make it less likely that thennners whole years work would be spoiled br- aI dry or a wet spell Most of the money in cattle raising goes not to the mountain farmer but to the Blue Grass fatteuer Timber is becomingscarceit will not long furnish a living to many men and it takes a long time to raise a new crop If we are to share in the wealth of this great country we will have to have other things to depen- dIon No one rule can be laid down for all Each man shouldstudy this conditions on his own farm and learn how he can make the most out of it He should not be content to scratch u poorer and poorer living out of the laud each year but should put his bruins into his farming and get the constantly increasing returns that come from carefulwork lie should also learn what to do to get the most money out of his spare time and especially he should not wait for his neigh hors to make a start but should think and act for himself It always pays in tho end Try it und see I IN WASHINGTON Congress Doing Nothing but Hit at PresidentRegular Work Stop ped While It Tolls

getting ready to count noses Census taking will occupy all his energies in 1910 buts cvep today he is getting ready for that Herculean task It is the biggest thing the United States does once in every ten years but today tho sys tern for its accomplishment has no peers anywhere in tho world The reason is because America now has a permanent census bureau ono which Is always making prepara i tions for tho next decades count Tho countrys solons will go down Into tho public treasury this winter for 14000000 for tho 1910 census and of that stint 1GDOOOO Is for rualntalncnco of a permanent bu reauSpeaking in smaller figures it costs the United States government 17 cents for counting each and every man woman boy and girl once In ten years It costs just as much to count Jdhu D Rockefeller as It docs NorwayIu a nucleus for his prospective for tune It Is estimated that the population I t- I I I I I 1 of this country has increased 20 percent since the last census was taken In 1900 and according to con servative guesses by men who are I qualified to know the number of persons should total In the neighbor hood of 90000000 As a conse quenco statisticians have arrived at the decision that in 1920 tho population will touch the 100000000 mark The census of 1910 Is to cost the people little more than that of 1900 for the reason that machines which 1 are wonderfulln their makeup have been Invented by members of tho census bureau and these do far greater work than tho old stylo counting devices in use when the Job was started nine years ago There are two styles of machines lne is the card punching device and tho other the tabulator Tho first punches tho holes In the census cards which aro arranged much as In the conventional card Index The wonderful tabulating machine then takes the pasteboards and solely by mechan teal means adds classifies and makes up totals from the cards which pass through the device faster than the eye can follow them Hoth ma chines are essential and each is dependent upon the other for success The now card punching machine which is aI great improvement upon the old system Is an electrical contrivance Hitherto the operator was compelled to play upon It like a typist but today all that Is necessary Is to touch the key desired press a lover and the machine keeps on punching cards as long as the power Is kept on The old hand puncher was capable of sending out 900 cards each day while the new automaton attains a speed of 3500 and saves tho operators nerves Another feature of these now machines is that the United States will soon know after the cards 1 bavo been turned In by tho great army of stalls tics gatherers Just where It stands on population Classification Is also a great feature divisions being made of whites blackc and other races along with females males natives foreigners married and single persons One hundred and fifty of these new machines are In the process of construction for the census taking of 1910 Three thousand persons will do the clerical work In tho government offices at Washington So you see there is something to this census taking business Director North of tho census declares that as soon as tho Incoming cards are punched ho will I bo able to give to the country the total Tho tabulating machines are now a closely guarded secret In a little machine shop at tho census bureau offices In Washington and at last accountsI i the experts at work upon it were perfecting the details of Its construction It Is a government Invention and no one person gets the credit for it but it will revolutionize the business of counting I noses In other years Uncle Sams work of taking n snap shot of his people was like a man In tho hay cod fed business Jumping Into n printing shop 1 IITheyears were so much dif TS OLD STV feront from thoso of the REQUIRED TO B decade previous that even though the same persons were given the caro of the offices connected therewith they found themselves at sea within a few days Now how ever the permanent census bureau makes the counting of tho population a business for all time with Uncle Sam and this gigantic Job will bo given tho attention of his weather eye from day to day though the fruits of the work will be thrust Into tho public gaze only once In ten years Men who are experts on taking the census of countries declare that the system by which the government will take the count In 1910 Is admit teddy n model which the whole world should fol low If It would bo as uptodate as this corner Another project Is on foot today which will great ly facilitate this census program That Is the erection of a permanent homo for the population counters If congress allows Director North to erect such an edifice It will be a specially con structed statistics manufacturing plant In n communication to congress Director North sets forth his plans Ho plans to expend the sum of 675000 for the purchase of a site and for the six story fireproof building upon which ho Is laying his program This ho says will provide ample accommodations for the 3000 persons who arc engaged In this work from year to year Today if you were to visit Washington and wished to see tbo census bureau yon would be led to a ont stor brick structure which was erected for tho tabulation of statistics in 1900 One great space problem which the government faces Is the storing of census reports and this took up Just about all the room of the old structure so that most of the clerks and other help had to be accommodated elsewhere It was re cently estimated that it would house Just about onefourth of the clerks needed for the census next year The great army of housetohouse canvassers who will count you and your family In 1910 are not as yet even estimated by Director North but It Is recorded that ono man counts only about 10000 persons many of them counting less in tho small space of time allotted to the tabulation Thousands upon thousands of extra men will be placed upon the payroll of the United States government next summer and shortly afterward this great counting process will be commenced After tho New Year tho greatest problem which DIrec- torJ North faced was of getting enough money from congress to fully guarantee a complete count which would fully Be forth all that statisticians wished to know Tho census budget was up before congress last year but was turned over to the 190S09 national legislature lawmakers much regret that whereas the constitution of the United States re quires that each ten years there be a E TABULATOR WITH DML3 THAT Ar5Er BY HAND complete satisfactory census of all the souls In the country no adequate plans were made when the republic was planted on this side of the Atlantic For that reason every decade saw a hurry and scurry to count the population groat confusion distress In some sections and general prevalence of conditions bordering on chnos So for more than a century it continued thus each year for the pre ceding administration It Is stated did not care about giving the next successful party anything up on which tho caption of spoils might be hung it Is declared So nobody went after a real census system very strongly But modern Ideas have been injected into tho counting process and the gigantic move for a per manent bureau having succeeded we are now to have a census which will enumerate speedily accurately and give results to the people In the shortest possible time The establishment of a permanent bureau will also bring about the perfection of more accurate faster and far better Ideas at later dates Each decade will see changes for the best It is declared by those In power at Wash ington Cultivate the Open Mind President Eliot says time open mind Is a fruit of culture

North American Ilovlow Mr Howclls places tho name of Tolstoy among the very greatest of tho names of the nineteenth century There was he says Napoleon and there was Lincoln and then there was Tolstoy in an order which hue may change though it ap pears to mo curtain that tlmo will not change time number of theso supremo names Mr Howells continues Since I have set them down hero they have suggested to mo a sort of representative unity in their relation to ono another If you fancy Napol eon tho incarnation of selfish force which Inspired and supported his own triumphant enemies in their reaction against progress If you suppose Lin cola tho typo of humanity struggling toward the Idoal In tho regeneration of the worlds polity you may well conceive of Tolstoy as time souls crt icism of the evil and time good which however wholly or partially they knew It the others Imperfectly did The work of Lincoln was no more final than tho work of Napoleon and like Lincolns Tolstoys work has been without finality So far ns I can per ceive it has oven been without of feet In a civilization which calls It self Christian but which has apparently been no more moved by the hUe man soul an It was in Tolstoy

Shanghl and In tho office of the Methodist Publishing House I met Miss Ida Brooks who some years ago was a stenographer of Pres Frost at De rea College I was a student there during the winter of 190102 and In talking over Berea college days with Miss Brooks she asked If I wrote to any one there and suggested that I write an open letter to you as she thot that a number of my friends there would be glad to know what I have been doing since I left Bere That Is my excuse for writing to you todayI have always looked back on m few months In Berea with great pleas ure and with all that I have taken In the way of college work In other schools I have regretted that I did not get a degree from Berea College I However that Is something that cant be remedied now unless they have some plan by which I could do the work In my absence and thero was no such provision made for post graduate work thero In my day When I left Berea I went to Morgan town W Va and entered the State University there I studied llbrai science and got a position as an assist ant In the library to help pay my ex perifces I studied hard took as man extra courses as they would permit did double work at the summer school one summer and was able to graduate with an A B with tho class of 1903 PresbyteriI N Y and began a regular theological course Again I did cataloguing and other library work to help pay my way and during my third and last year I was elected the student man ager of the book store a position which paid me well and helped me In accumulating a good theological library as well as to pay my expenses I spent a part of several summe vacations at Chautauqua N Y andI on the day of my arrival there onej summer I mot my fate in the person t oi a missionarys daughter from India I Miss Elsie Morrison was born in India of missionary parents and both of j her parents were also born there of missionary parents The Morrjso 1 family have given a total of several hundreds of years of missionary set vice in India So the young lady was a missionary of the third genera I tlon And having the missionary spirit it was not a difficult mattes f to persuade her to come to China in stead of India We were married shortly after her fathers death In 1905a year earlier than we had ex pected because the death of her fathe had left her alone During my Seminary course I tool I enough extra studies to glvo me the I additional year of work required for the degree of Bachelor of Divinity My special study was along the line- i of Church History and Comparative j religions On my graduation from the Seminary in 190G I accepted appoint ment as a missionary in Central China under the Foreign Christian Mission ary Society We have been various ly located temporarily while studying the language but this year were permanently located at the large rivet port of Wuhu It la a very Important commercial centre and a good place for missionary worlc We have three It schools one church and one chapel here In the city besides quite an ex tensive country work I have charge of the most of the school work and share the responsibility for all the rest pt the work with my colleague Mr Paul- I shall be glad to write to any one interested more in detail of the work here or of mission work in general or of any phase of missionary work with which I am acquainted I am supported by a large church in But tale N Y so am not looking for money from any one else altho there are always places where we need money In the work and have not enough appropriated by the board But I shall be glad if I can interest any one in the mission cause no matter to what Missionary Society they may I contribute their gifts I should bo glad if you can have sent to mo the catalogue or any lit r erature that may tell what Is

CAREER Editorial from Courlcrjournat Long before the decision of the St premo Court came to end forever the existence of Berea College as a seat of learning for both the white and negro races the trustees of the Institution anticipating the event began raising what they called an adjustment fund socalled because Its purpose was to accomplish the adjustment of the college to the new requirements Now that tho decision has been made there Is nothing left the trustees but td push the work of acquiring the fund and to establish in Kentucky a negro college to take up and perpetuate the labors of Berea for that race while old Berea devotes its efforts to the educational uplift of tho white youths of the mountains to whom it is so accessible Tho effect of Kentucky legislation having been to close the doors of Berea to colored students there ought to follow by all means swift and sure steps to provide an institution for them The trustees comprehend the need and are renewing their effort with marked vigor and with promise of success In bringing to pass the establishment of cuch a school in Kentucky the workers in its behalf will confer a lasting benefit upon the StateThe best friend of the negro race Is the South where the race is most numerous and where its people are best understood Yet of all the Southern States most of whom are dovotlr capital and service to negro education Kentucky so far has done least Such a school as is proposed will be of incalculable value socially and economically for it will Increase the Indus trial efficiency and raise the moral tone of a large part of the populatlo while still other advantages must tlow from the Increased earning and purchasing power of the colored people We cannot of course bring all the young negroes under the power rf such a school but we can train a small army of teachers each of whom will be imbued with tho Industrial Idea and they will spread tho better spirit and impulse among the masses As Dr Frost has put it Some such training as was given by master and mistress in the old days must be sup plied now through the industrial trained teacher in the public schools It will involve a large outlay to acquire such an institution for Indus trial education requires tools and materials which are more costly than spelling books The trustees of Be rea have set aside f200000 of the fixes properties of the Institution and appropriated the Income therefrom tor the benefit of the colored people To replace the funds thus withdrawn From its mountain work and to sup plement those funds so as to provide- a really adequate school the socalled adjustment fund of 400000 is being raised Mr Carnegie and other Philanthropists of national feeling have subscribed about 344000 of the sum There is a condition that the last foOOOO must be raised In Kentucky and this Is the task that now Iles- before Kentuckians The remaining sum required seems a small enough contribution from the State directly to be benefited iron the institution The colored people ei Kentucky are doing their part they laving already subscribed 7000 Bu the negro race Is not one of wealth Its people are dependent upon the friendly efforts and generosity of the whites for their advancement and the means for it Since the salvation of the negro race In America must come through tho agency of industrial education whereby Its people may be enabled to become producers of wealth and not dependents that Industrial education cannot bo made too easy of acquirement Dictations of hu manity and enlightened citizenship I would actuate the white population to ffer to the negroes every possible pportunlty to better themselves Considerations of selfinterest If the other failed would point out that the ray to shift the burden of carrying i the negro race from white shoulders to colored lies In simply educat t ig the colored men to become producers I In an address before the National Association of Teachers In Colored Schools Prof E L Blackshear principal of a Texas industrial school for negroes alluded to the help given the negro race by the Southern people Said he While no colored man possessing von a spark of intelligence or of ap rtclatlon can be unmindful or ungrateful for what Northern phllan trophy and Christianity have done and are doing for negro education in mthern States still this should notr- aUEe us to be unmindful or unappre atlvo of the work the Southern States and municipalities are doing fr our educational upbuilding More ov tr our undying gratitude for emancipation from slavery need not blind our eyes and mind to that practical eryday neighborly philanthropy of friendly whites among the form slave owners and their descendants which has done so much to mal freedom effective and to emanc pate us from ignorance and povert This practical philanthropy takes the form of advice encouragement and I financial help in every undertaking mado by the colored people for their own general Improvement such as building churches and acquiring land and erecting buildings for negro edt rational institutions It takes the form in many cases of definite encouragement to the thlrfty negroes to acquire farm and town property and and of long and Indulgent conditions of payment where these are needed No more practical way of aiding the race could bo evolved In Kentucky than that of making possible Ute In dubtrial college proposed by the true t ttea of Derea College The sooner the negro is helped to help himself tho sooner ho will be independent ct white support Such work as is done by the school at Tuskegee and Hamilton is Incalculable and it is that wo which is in contemplation here Doth Tukegee and Hampton are too faraway from this section to bo withinI reach of many negroes of Kentucky- So the need for a Kentucky Institu tlon becomes the greater Whether the Institution be realiz ed by some sort of alliance with the Eckstein Norton University as bas been proposed or by the establish went of an entirely new plant the argument is all in favor and the duty now confronts the public in general and Kentuckian in particular to make It a fact IWASHINGTON Continued fromVint Vce national debt

Tawney Mr Fitzgerald a Demo crat Mr John Sharp Williams n Democrat and Judge W I Smith of Iowa whose motives are strongly suspected Republicans and Democrats Joined together In voicing their exas Aeration at tho way in which Mi Roosevelt had made Congress ridicul ous In the eyes of the nation Very few defended the President among them being Representatives Bennett Lrlscoll and Townsend The latter delivered an eloquent address cram liletely clearing the President Fin ally Congress adopted the report al most unanimously- On the next day Saturday It still could think of nothing else and neg lected the countrys business to pass a resolution introduced by Mr Tawne of the Appropriations Committee providing for the appointment by the I Speaker of five members to Investigate the entire Secret Service front top to bottom The Senate went through much the same performance One of the laugh- ableI Incidents in connection with the Senates discussion of this matter was the proposal that after Mr Roosevelt leaves office he should be called before the Appropriations Committee- of the Senate to testify all about his connections with the Secret Service The Senate once tried a trick like that when they asked James O Blaine to tell them about the Mulligan letter so famous In the Cleveland Harrison campaign It Is said that Mr Blaine made them feel very foolish and probably Mr Roosevelt would scare the life out of the Senate il thor tried to haul him over the coals before a committee of men whom he has commanded as President PRESIDENT HITS BACK The President finally at the end of this week grow tired of tho fuss made by Congress although he has at no tlmo lost his temper as the legislators have and so decided to show them that be could have shown good reasons why Congress needs to- be watched by detectives it ho hind ranted to So he sent a mass of material to Senator Hale of tho Senate Approprlatlonn Committee show ag among other things that Son tor Tillman of South Carolina had ttcmpted to obtain government land In the state of Oregon under false pretenses The accusation against lie influential and popular a member of Congress as Ben Tillman has set all Congress aghast Senator Hale romptly gave the papers to Senator lllmah himself to use In making an answer Senator Tillman claims that be could explain the charges but aye that someone has stolen from his desk the letters which he needs as evidence to clear himself He in nuates that President Roosevelt had something to do with It Thus in addition to tho epithet of liar which has figured so often in the Congressional fight with the President lately we now have the epithet thief tho applied Indirectly Sen Tillmans reply to tho President was one of the weakest speeches ho has ever made He attacked the President violently but made no al tempt to clear himself of the charge Even his best friends did not try to applaud him when ho finished There is great pity felt for him here because of his Illness but most people believe ho has brought his disgrace on himself and deserves it Editor I Another incident showing the bad fetling between the Senate and the President was the attack made ullon Mr Roosevelt last Thursday by the tho Democratic leader Senator Culberson of Texas In relation to the permission given by the President to the American Steel company toI- t absorb the Tennessee Coal and Iron Company last winter thus allowing a trust to be formed contrary to the laws of the United States accord ing to the Idea of Mr Culberson This matter will come up again later Only one other action this week on tho part of Congress Is worth noting Tile resolution calling for an Increase of tho salary of the President of the United States to 100000 a year was favorably reported out of Commute and will probably pass In connection with the feud oC Congress with the President may be noted the determination of the Sonar to dispute with Mr Roosevelt all Federal appointments under the patronage power of tho President band with the advice and consent of the Senate such as the appolntmci ot revenue collectors postmasters etc Senator Depew Is responsible for tbe statement that there will be a fight on every Federal appointment from this time forward This fight 1nay even extend over Into the term nf Mr Taft It Is understood that Congress feels that the Presidents are growing to think that Congress ougl to have less power In view ot tbe tact that It is so slow In moving and has done so little for the country In the last decade Congress is deter mined that their dignity shall bore cognized and also that no pie shall be lust and with these things In vie1 seem bound to show that It they can not or will not act themselves the fan prevent at least much of an thing from being done by anyone else EVEN SUPPORT FORAKER The Senate Is even inclined to stand behind Senator Foraker In his fight against the President on tho matter of the dismissal of the negro troops who shot up Brownsville It requested an explanation from the Secretary of War as to just how tit detectives were employed who brought iri the last report from the President in this care Secretary Wright thi week sent in a frank and open report which tells exactly why and how tin information which has done so muck to clear up the case was obtained mid how much was paid to the men who got it Now that it has this report the Senate does not seem to know what to do about it Forakci vlll speak on the subject soon Hi says that when he retires to private Ute he will act as attorney for the colored soldiers who are trying to bo blnstatcd in the army The supreme court this week decided on the matter In relation to a soldier who sued for pay due him from the date of his dismissal to that of the expire ment of his term of enlistment The lecislon was favorable to the Ired tent and against the soldier and this promises to do a great deal to finally close the incident The matter has been unduly agitated by such men s Forakor already CABINET MAKING News about the Taft adminlstra lion is scant It is said that at the special session of Congress which will follow his inauguration Speaker Canton will appoint only one Committee lat on Ways and Moans so that nothing but the tariff can be taken up at that session Speaker Reed did tho same thing after McKlnloy was inagurated in 1896 The Tart cab- Inet is taking definite shape The Treasury portfolio has been offered to ex Governor Myron T Herrick of Ohio The Postmaster General will be Frank Hitchcock and Mr Hitch cock will resign from his present place as Chairman of the National opubllcan Committee This place Thlch will be almost a sinecure dur Inr the next three years will probably be held by the present mere iry oi the Committee William Hay rard of Nebraska who is a loyal TlJaD to Taft and Hitchcock Mr Thompson of Now York will not be MoyerIrands J Heney of San Francisco will become Attorney General of the United States He Is the man who dlsttn uiphed himself prosecuting grafters on the Pacific coast was shot by one cf the latter and recently at Philadelphia stated that E H Harriman rllroad magnate was responsible for- the corruption of San Francisco thru his railroad Interests He has been known as an independent Democrat It Is also announced that President Roosevelt will help Mr Taft begin his policy ot conciliating and making friends with the South by appointing a Democrat as Federal Judge In the eastern dlctrict ot North Carolina 10 place of Judge Purucll recently de ceased SUPREME COURT BUSY I The Supremo Court has been busy this week Last week It decided that N Y City might regulate the price of gas furnished by a chartered corporation This week it remitted tbe 29000000 fine against tho Standard 011 Company by denying an appeal to it Yet It should be remarked that this cose has boon opened again b proceedings for a rohcarlnc in the lower courts The Supremo Court alte rendered on Friday a noteworthy de I clslon In relation to the bonds of lhe I corporation which furnished Knoxvil Tennessee with city water The do clslon held that the company has right to take into consideration tho depreciation of Its property from ordinary wear and tear and to renew such property out of Its earnings besides merely paying Interest on Its bonds It also states that such a company has a right to charge a llrleo high enough to secure money for theso purposes and says that the courts have litho right to declare just how much profit a company IDay make This limits the decision In the New York Gas case- BATTLESHIPS WANTED In spite of the present poverty of the nation the Navy Department wants some now battleships bigger than over They agree that It is possible to build a ship so big that no other nation can match it and until this is done there will be no end to the Increase of naval expenditure all over the world The want us to build a ship so big tilt there can rjevor bo a bigger one I They ask for a ship of 25000 t01i1i burden with 14 Inch guns bcllovln that no other country would try to build a ship to beat It The logic of this request looks queer to com people President Roosevelt is lies toting but will probably recommend something of the kind and have an other fight like that of last sprint trying to get Congress to build a gcod navy Our national poverty Is the subject of speculation here It is though that bonds will have to be issued Mr Roosevelt takes the attitude that tho coming generations will get most of the good of many of the present costly improvements such us the Panama Canal and ought to hclj pay for thorn Probably a tax will bo placed on the Importation of te and coffee This would be a tariff for revenue onlytllo first of Its kind that the Republican party tvec thought ofl- CANAL WORK APPROVED Speaking of the Panama Canal f- lis Interesting to note that a commute of Congressmen headed by Victor Uurdock of Kansas returned from an Insepectlon of the work en the Isth mus this week and report them selves as In the highest degree pleased with the progress there and the conditions brought about by Colonel jothals Mr Gothals himself hoi Issued a report this week dealing with tiro selection of tho site of the canal denying some recent criticisms that the socalled Gatun site was unwisely chosen On tho whole the big ditch seems to be doing very well LABOR MITER TAFT An amusing feature ot the passing days is the attempt of the leaders of organized labor to make friends with residentelect Taft after having fought him tooth and nail In the re ont campaign Now they are talk- Ing about hla ability as a jurist and his fairness great heart etc It i oks as if they were going to ask him to help them In getting legislation through Congress After the decision ot Judge Wright here three weeks ago that Gompers and Morn son should be Imprisoned the Judge has been threatened by labor fanatics lIe is being secretly guarded by detectives CUMMINS FINE PLANS The new

practically all scientists that any ono under tho In fluence of strong drink however slight Is In an abnormal condition Tho delicate balance of his faculties Is somewhat maladjusted In short he IB more or less drunk It Is an un disputed fact granted even by Muens terberg of Harvard that time smallest quantity of alcohol has an Inhibiting effect upon tho body and mental acute ness The socalled moderate drink er Is immoderate because he is taking something which at the time lowers his physlclal or mental efficiency Therefore looking at tho question r from the scientists point of view Sir Victor Horsley asked I Did It profit a nation to take a sleeping draught every night Time i moderate drinker was a drugtaker I for alcohol was a narcotic and the I man who consumed It was really tak lag a sleeping draught How was this country to take the Prince of itIj one pounds annually on sleeping draughts Tho voice of science declares with out doubt or uncertainty that the judge who drinks Intoxicants Is affect ed to a larger or less degree In his mental process thereby that the physician Is Jess accurate In his judg ments that thobuslness man Is more lor less Intoxicated that tho labore- rII to a greater or less degree narcotized In short that there Is absol- utelyi no such thing as perfect balance of either physlclal or mental operation for tho user of strong drinks even though ho uses them moderately Ho may not bo conscious of his aber rations others are more apt to be nevertheless the aberrations are there- WE MAKE A SPECIALTY OF THE FOLLOWING LINE OF GOODS Ladies

ment to Col E A F Drake stands In Woodlawn cemetery Titusville Now a beautiful monument com memorating the foundation of the in dustry is planned by Canadota chap ter Daughters of the American Revo lution to bo erected at the site of the Drake well It is desired to have this monument unveiled on the fiftieth an niversary of the discovery that gave to the world a new industry an In SUltry that has done muchor more to advance clvlllzatlon as the appll cation of steam The design of this monument Is shown in our illustra lion and it is to be provided by the voluntary contributions of the grate ful sons and daughters of tho oil ountry The crowning feature of the monu ment is to be a flaming torch illumln sting the globe What a wealth of suggestion It tells the story of how the cheap mineral oil from the earth tarried the light of intelligence Into the dark corners of earth I Since Drakes discovery the obscure Lin olns of tho world have not been compelled to read by the light of blazing pine knots on the hearth our Frank Una have not been forced to study philosophy by the feeble flicker of sputtering tallow candles Iluminatlon however Is not the whole story of this Industry From

followed after This monu ment will pay tribute to every one of them because it will be dedicated to the vast and marvelous mining and manufacturing industries of which the Drake well was the foundation It will be a monument to the race of men who havo solved more gigantic prob lems and met more emergencies in 60I years than were ever given in tho same apace of time to any other race of men to solve In this short time the men of oildom have discovered a new product dissolved It into its constituent ele ments devised means for storage cre ated vast systems of transportation delivered the product to the uttermost ends of the earth devised new ma chlnery conquered physical obstacles and read the book of tho rocky strata as no other men have done From that little beginning of Col

Industry tho hen who have rubbed the wonderful lamp and found gold In their hands This duty should not be left to another genera tion Already there are thousands en listed In this army of modern grease who never saw tho site on which tho old Drake well was drilled with so much pains and patience Annually hundreds of travelers pass tho magic spot and have naught to attract their glance from the car window But next year they may see tho tall shaft and the torch that hand In hand with Liberty has lighted tho world literally The following description la given of tho design of the Petroleum Me mortal The monument Is in the form of n monolithic Doric shaft bearing alult a bronze lantern in the form of a globe The shaft rests upon a slnftlo block of stone upon the four fares of which are basreliefs symbolical of the departments of human activity which have been most affected by the discovery of oilheat light power and locomotion The baso rests upon a stylobate of three high steps The stylobate Is In the center of a paved area surrounded by a parapet having at the four corners salient masses upon the outer surface of which are to bo cut inscriptions telling of the history of the discovery of oil by Col Drake and of tho evolution of the In dustry The whole monument is to be raised upon a sodded plateau and is to be approached on nil four sides by flights of 13 steps The dimensions of the monument are as follows Plateau 94 feet square platform at parapet line 62 feet square diameter of shaft 5 feet 6 inches pedestal 8 feet square stylobate 20 feet square height ol plateau 8 feet height of monument 63 feet total height of monument and plateau 61 feet The location of the old Drake well Is on a sightly spot near the line of the Pennsylvania railroad so that the monument when completed can be viewed by all travelers between Pitts burg and Buffalo HIS LIFE A LUCKY ONE Youngster at Least Had the Great Virtue of Cheerfulness I The following is a genuine essay by a tenyearold boy My life has been a very lucky one When I was three years old I fell downstairs and cut my head When 1 was five years old I was looking at some hens and a dog bit my leg When I was eight I went with my brother in tho trap and the horse fclLand threw us out of the trap my brother lit on his feet and I lit on the horses back Last year I was playing and I ran Into a surrey and cut my eyebrow and I has left a mark One day I went Into the slaughter house and a big sheep ran after mo and knocked me down I have had a happy life This cheerful acceptance of what are usually regarded as tho Ills of life reminds the writer of an old school fellow who took part in the fight at Elandsloagtc at the beginning of tho South African war After tho engagement he was taken to the hospital at PIctermarltzburg As soon as ho was able he wrote home and sent his pee plo tho tunic ho bad worn in the battle You will see he w rctothat there are 11 bullet holes in n but I was awfully lucky only

covered by InsuranccI 0 U MONEY BURNED UP Tho United States has always had tho reputation of being a very extra vagant Cation and spending or wast ing money like water but wo have always thought that at least we got tho worth of our money Now along comes a writer In Everybodys Maga zine and proves that every year wo throwaway over 600000000 Think of thatabout 3 for every man wo man and child in the country thrown away every year without any kind cl benefit or oven fun coming out of ItIgreat Ing up homes and furnlturo and busi ness houses and forests tho the writer does not mention that and human beings some 6500 a year tho they are not figured into tho cost In dol lars either Tho 600000000 Is just what we pay for trying to prevent fires in our big cities and what is burned up anyway And all this coat or almost all of it could be saved by a little time and wisdom and money put in the right place We aro wast- Ing this money each year simply because we do not put our brains to work in the right place The fact that all this money could t bo saved Is clearly proved by Europe Take just the ben from tires with out counting tho protection we pay for that dosent protect In Europe there Is just ono fire for overy 1200 peopleIn this country there is ono for every 220 people Figure that out On the basis of loss in Europe taking the thirty largest cities the loss is 61 cents a year for each in habitant In this country in our 250 largest cities the loss is 310 a year an Inhabitant Instead of a total per capita loss of H an wo have In this country Germany has a loss of only 49 cents a person and Italy a lots of only 12 cents It can easily be soon that this loss s a heavy burden on our prosperity f wo did not have it that money couM go Into permanent wealth now clothes or tools or capital or into tho savings bank where it would grow Instead of being thrown away Also If there were more care used about fires tho insurance rates would be lower Tile rates in America are twelvo times as high as in Great Britlau and twenty times 01 high as In Italy And wo havo to foot the bill ITho money wo lose every year for fires would pay tho whole cost or keeping up an army as largo as that of Germany which Is the test In the world and we would still have twenty I millions loft over for fireworks It would pay for twelve times as many colleges as there aro now oyou1t would pay for all tho education that Is given In this country it would pay moro than half the oxpcnw of tho whole government It would buyout John D Rockefeller and a few other millionaires thrown In And yet wo are wasting It all overy year and get nothing out of It but the fun of see Ing our homes friends and children burn up Do It now Dont put off until tomorrow whi fe can be done today n Very Serious It is a
