Committee on Terrl tories introduced a bill to bring about the above reoult on Saturday The Democrats have long been In favor of such action and now that the Republicans have come into line with their platform pledge It seems pro bablo that President Roosevelt will have the pleasure of signing the en abling acts of the last two states which will perhaps ever be admitted to the Union from the American con tinentTho attention of every ono lu Wash ington has been chiefly directed to the roorganlzatlon of the Navy De partment recently It is a plan if the new Secretary Mr Newberry and has been

experimenting with and constructing war balloons of all sorts Previously we have been far outdone In the matter of procuring airships for army use It has been recalled this week that In the war between Franco and Germany a balloon proved tho moans of prolonging the fight for some time REMEMBER TilE MAINE The President sent a curt message to Congress this week requesting that tho latter take steps to have the battleship Maine which was sunk in tho Harbor of Havana at the outset of the Spanish War raUod from the harbor bottom where she still lies containing tho bodies of fifty Ameri can sailors The Spaniards and many of the Cubans so ex Governor Ma goon says believe that the Maine was sunk by her own men and not by Spanish mine explosions They say that we are afraid to ascertain the truth of these suspicions by raising tho Maine On last Tuesday and Wednesday the members of the National Child Labor Commission as well as a number of wouldbe child benefactors assembled In Washington at tho call of Mr Roosevelt and were welcomed by the latter Tho President and the delegates agreed that too many home less children who aro rcarcdfln asy lums aro not properly taught and cared for The

County that thero is u renewal of the whiskey buisuess there aud we have been asked to expose this and start a fight against it Indignation over the state of affairs is widespread and leading men feel that unless something is dune nt once there will be a return to conditions which existed years ago and which recently have been muchimprovedThe which comes to The Citizen is BO detailed that I there seems no reason to doubt it One merchant is said to have imported three worms into the Sturgeon countryanother is said to have two and one or two bootleggers are named as being busy Of course the editor has not seen any of these thingshe is simply voicing the complaint of subscribers and honest men Without going at all into the question of the lawlessness involv ed in these things every man in the districts affected ought to have a few solemn thoughts with himself about the terrible evil that is again threatening his country in the renewal of the whiskey trade There is no greater curse in the mountains there is nothing that has ever done half HO much harm as this same whiskey From it come the murders and lawlessness which have not only coat many lives and mode ninny a happy wife into a mourning widow but hove scared away outside capital The developemcnt of the mountains whichshould have taken place years ago and which would have meant good for everyone of us has been set back indefinitely Confidence is a hard thing to inspire especially among strangers and the northern men with money have never understood the mountain They think because there is any kind of lawlessness they would not be safe themselves and so they stay awayand their money slays with them As soon HB it is reported that lawlessness has broken out again the interest which they are now showing will be withdrawn and our progress will have got another hardsetback This will be particularly severe at this time when the timber business is beginning to fall off anyway Out bad as this would be it is really not BO bad as the suffering that innocent women and little children would have to endure because their menfolks are not able to withstand the temptation of the drum There are always a few who make a great fuss about their liberty and demand whiskey when they want it Some times it is the weakest that make the most fuss Any how the weak ones are there They will lie decent citizens and kind husbands and fathers if the whiskey is kept away but if they can get to it the devil will get into then And then comes the agonya beaten wifean injured child ruined happiness at least And at the worst such scenes as are every now and then charged up to the account of the whiskey fiend murder in some awful form a wife struck down across the bodylof her child or some other crime too horrible to recall Whose fault is it fnot that of the man that did the deed He was crazy It is the fault of the thing that drove him crazyand of the man that gave it to him The man who gives a weak fellow human being the whiskey that spurs him to a crime is more guilty than the man that docs the deed And Mr Citizen the fellow that lets the whiskey dealer do his nefarious work is not guiltless We sincerely hope that the reports about the opening up of the tradn are groundless and will be glad to print denials from anyone that knows the facts and is not afraid to put his name to them Out with such reports in the air it is the part of wisdom to watch and every good citizen should front nowiI be on the alert against this tremendous evil The Oregon Republicans have covered themselves with glory by sending a Democrat to the U S Senate He was chosen at a primary provided by law and a majority of the members of the legislature had pledged themselves to support the nominee of the primary No one expected that it would not bo a Republican but when the Democrat came in ahead the men stuck to their pledge and voted for him There bus been a good deal of complaint about this but no man ever didwrong in sticking to his pledged word and the party honor has been improved by these men who kept faith to their own cost Pres Taft has approved this action The Citizen receives letters every little while froln people who do not sign their names or who sign names that we do not know We are glad to have all the news but unless we know a person we cannot be sure that theyare not trying to throw something off on a friend or to get this paper into trouble So we have to require that every letter rent to us for publication be signed not only by the sender but if he is not known to us by some leading merchant or the postmaster or some one else on whom we can depend If any reader has sent in such a note he will Understand why he line not seen it printed The London papers Echo Sentinel and Democrat showed great enter pi ist during the fire lost week The Sentinel and Democrat combined to get out a special edition which was off the press before the ashes were cool while the same mail brought a full account of thus catastrophe in the regular edition of The Echo London should be proud of such able alert and hustling editors BEREA FINE REMITTED Governor Wlllson has remitted the Batcs share of the 1000 fine as sessed against Berea College for the violation of tho Day Law which was necessary to make a test case He says as tho violation was committed In good faith and the school has done and Is doing such good work there is no Justice in tho payment of the line REAL WINTER COMES HERE One of tho worst storms which has struck this part of the country in years blew up Friday night and rag ed over Sunday not moderating much till Monday morning Tho temper ature which did not quite reach thanethe high wind which made it hard to move about and almost impossible to keep even tho best built house snug and warm Men and animals alike suffered greatly and there was almost no business dono on Saturday All who could stayed at home On Sunday the wind died down but the temperature stayed low and went to about two above zero that night The storm as Is always the case did the greatest damage in the cities In Lexington for Instance no street cars ran all ono day and telephon- and telegraph wires were almost all down Communication all thru the Middle West was badly interrupted and in ono place an Important train was lost for three days in the snow drifts The final result of the cold snap will not be bad however for this part of the country Tho farmers I will find tho snow a benefit to the growing grain and it will Improve I soils in general Tho cold was not sharp enough to hurt fruit buds and so altogether farmers in this state are well pleased as Is possible at this time of tho year It matters not what you are though- to be but what you are If what shone afar so grand turn to nothing In thy hand On again the virtue lies in the struggle not tho prize Lord Houghton Fearest sometimes that thy Father hath forgot When the clouds around thee gather 7 Doubt Him not Always

started the fund for this purpose and we earnestly recommend that every minister in the State mention the cause next Sunday morning as one particularly suited for our thought la connection with the Lincoln centen nial Louisville Evening Post I MOVE FOR EXTRA SESSION A great deal of pressure Is being brought to bear on Gov Wlllson Just to call an extra session of the legislature in spite of his announcement that there Is no Justification for such a call Various reasons are given by different people for asking for a special sesSionthe real one in each case Is that they want some thing which the regular session did not provide and do not want to wait forEver since the last session closed politicians are finding out that Brad leys election to the Senate was bought at a terrible cost to the Rep ublican party The pledge in platform for a County unit bill theI not keptthe opportunities for a redistricting bill and a fair election law were lost and tax reform and other needed laws all had to take a back seat In order to gratify Mr Bradlcys ambition As a result the Republican party has no record on which to appeal to the people in the next election and defeat is staring it In the face The legislature which was not Democratic enough but that a Republican was elected to tho Senate did not do anything much for the people of the state and the Republicans who did get the senatorshIp are going to be blamed for it These same politicians who are hollering foran extra session now are practically admitting that the Republican party could have done good work If it had wanted to for they believe that another session will do something to the advantage of the party There is no doubt of the need of byethe people who are after an extra session but there Is considerable doubt whether it would be wise to call such a session Judge ORear and Secretary of State Brunner both of whom have hopes of heading the ticket somo day are for It because they believe it will strengthen tho party Of course neither they nor Gov Wlllson say Just these things in public but these are the real reasons behind their action Gov Wlllson on the other hand is not at pal sure that if another session Is called it will do pay of these needed things and he Is afraid that deeperblamo thetvery much good and he knows that It will cost the stato money which Is badly need ed for other things At this writ lag It seems likely that the Governor will stick to his guns and make the party go before tho people on Its record at tho last meeting of the legislature Ho advised at that time against the course tho legislature was taking and is simply doing what ho then said he would Judge not thy neighbor until thou find thyself in his position j THINGS TO THINK OF The benefit wo receive must bo rendered again

After that nono of tho four of us had any cause for com plaint on the score of stagnation and McGratb two of my gfSaundora by means of a miserably scrawled anonymous note to the chief of police

bank was tho central flgnro regardless of his high social standing his reputed fabu Ious wealth and his Irreproachable character I selected tho cashier at tho tae tory as my man and Murphy took tho toiler of tho bank the man who mado up tho payroll each week For ten days wo shadowed them with dogged 1JCrslstency They were both men of the town and both were members tho hotter class of clubs and

thero was not a single coin in the lot which had not I been given birth legitimately at somo ono of the governments mints Sauni dear made sure of tills before tho sack reached tho factory i Tho cashier a man named Powell and tho teller both kept close watch upon me while I worked in the i bIg vault aa was tholr duty and this Bavo mo scant opportunity to investl i gate the sacks of gold piled away In a pretentious row on a low shelf In 1 moving them I thought that some seemed lighter In weight than others nod as this would be valuable Informa lion if true I hit upon what I thought was a rather Ingenious way of deter mining If my surmise was correct Concealing my ponknlfo In tho hol low of my band with tho blado open I selected ono of tho sacks of tendol lar euros which seemed to bo lighter than some of Its mates and na I t 4 moved it from the shelf I cut the cordI which fastened tho mouth of it while tho attention of the inquisitive cashier and teller was directed elsewhere Having shaken the mouth of thn sack open and frayed the ends of the cord so that my ruse would not bo detected I purposely stumbled and fell as I crossed tho vault Tho coins poured out upon tho steel floor of the big vault In a bright yellow stream rolling hither and yon while I sat dejectedly In the midst of tho golden flood and rubbed npr knee and cursed Tho two bank officials showed lively concern at my stupid accident and both set about gathering up the coins I assisted them as much as possible but my pulse was beating too fast for my help to amount to much My ruso had fully served my purpose The ring of the coins upon tho steel floor of the vault had not been true They had rung dull and heavy and I know them at once for tholr real falso char acter Tho verification of this fact camo when I fingered them deftly as I restored them to the sack whence they had come There was no mistak ing tho feeling of them They wore greasy and slick that slimy touch which discloses tho spurious coin In tho dark as well as In the light Every ono I touched had that slippery soap stone surface which counterfeiters cannot overcome except by tho use of metal of the same fineness as that of the genuine coin As I replaced the sacks after clean ing tho shelf I was careful to weigh each of them In my hand There wore 15 sacks each containing a thousand dollars in half eagles which wero light in weight I now felt sure of my ground but It was still necessary that we secure proof against the teller I had not suspected tho cashier until his evi dent trepidation when I spilled the sack of gold The mystery was now moro complex and interesting than ever While I had discovered tho big reserve of the counterfeiters I had no evidence against any one and was still afraid to make arrests I wanted tho makers of tho coin and their machinery and wanted them badly for this was the biggest case that I had thus far InI rv career been engaged upon That night I did some tall think Inn and also made a secret trip to the bankers residence which I carefully examined from tho outside going over tho extenslvo grounds about the house and the outbuildings at the Im minent peril of being shot for a bur glar Hero I discovered only one thing of Importance In the stable I stum bled on an empty champagne case which was of the same brand as one I had noticed In tho vault of tho bank It might mean something or nothing but I had long ago learned to tako particular notice of small things and many is the valuable clew that this habit has given me Since tho return of Saunders and McGrath they had been working on the clew of the anonymous letter and the Information it contained about tho mysterious boxes which had been seen to arrive at the bank at night They had located tho author a discharged messenger who bore a grudge against the teller to whose Instance ho attributed his discharge From tho mes senger thoy learned that the boxes had been delivered at the back entrance of the bank late at night They had been brought to It In a ono horse express wagon but tho wagon had not displayed a license number and tho driver although muffled in a great coat had evidently not been a regu lar expressman so tho messenger in formed them He gavo a fairly accu rate description of the wagon which had been of peculiar construction- I had seen just such a vehicle at the bankers residence a sort of de livery wagon which seemed to be em ployed In hauling feed for tho exten slvo stablo of tho banker as It had been filled with sacks of oats and bales of hay when I saw It Tho next morning I reported sick at the bank but my service with tho banker was not at an end I had shifted my position from janitor at the bank to assistant gardener and general tao totum at the presidents residence Armed with a noto from tho banker to the gardener I put In my appearance at his residence The gardener didnt seem to like my appearance Ho regarded mo with cold suspicion while be read the noto from hh employer and It seemed to me he rather reluc tantly accepted mo as his assistant 1 verily believe ho would have driven mo away on some pretext if It had not been for the explicit terms of tho noto the banker bad written at my dic tationTho gardener was a tough looking customer There was an atmosphere of suspicion about him which put me on my guard and caused me to watch him with caution He was a smooth Individual however and I had served In my new capacity for three days without discovering anything worth mentioning when bo sot me at the task of wheeling out the oshee from the big bn in the collar The bin was situated at tho roar of tho furnace near tho entrance of the basement and In passing to and fro at my task I noticed several winecases piled In a dark corner of the basement I took advaatago of the first opportunity to examine them and while the lids were securely nailed down I found by lifting thorn that they woro as heavy as chunks of load That night I burglarized the bank ors basement while two of my companions kept watch outside to son that 1 was not disturbed In tho cbam pagnecases I found tho molds and other accessories of tho counterfeiters and a largo quantity of

GREAT ENEMY ALCOHOL Destroys the Dody and Shatters the Social Fabric That alcohol has an affinity for proItoplasm tho physical basis vt lIfoIItself and that this Is tho reason for the widely varied Injuries that It may inflict on tho body Is assorted by Dr r Henry Smith Williams In a series of articles contributed to McCluros Mag alone In tho first entitled Alcohol and the Individual Dr Williams shows that tho tissues of tho brain tho nerves tho heart and blood vessels tho stomach and Intestinal trpct thn lymphatic system tho kidneys and the- tlvdr may each and all boccmo dill eased by the habitual drinking of oven small quantities of alcohol Io notes also that these consequences are not confined to the drinker but are passed on to his descendants of successive generations All this Dr Williams tells us may be compared to tho eroding effect of n flowing stroam which has Its greatest action on tho part of Its banks that Is least restraint So alcohol circulating In the blood tends to attack whatever organ or tlssuo may bo weakest and most susceptible Dr Williams agrees with thoso who tend to class alcohol as a poison and discards the pernlouous theory that It gives any persistent Increase of muscular power Ho goes on It Is even questionable whether the energy derived from tho oxidation of alcohol In tho body con bo directly used at all as a source of muscular energy Such competent observers ma Srhumbwg and Schcffer Independent ly reached tho conclusion that It can not Ur Abel Inclines to tho samo rn opinion He suggests that alcohol Is not a food In the sense In which fats and carbohydrates aro food It should be defined as easily oxldlzablo drug with numerousuntoward effects which Inevitably appear when a certain mini mum dose Is exceeded Ho thinks that alcohol should bo classed with tho more or lets dangerous stimu mats and narcotics such as hasheesh tobacco etc rather than with truly sustaining foodstuffs In Its action on tho brain ho goes on to say alcohol Is an Inhibitor and disturber of mental activity not a promoter of it This bo regards as definitely proven by ho experiments of thn chief Gorman Investigators Its effect Is cumulative so that tho drink er of a single bottle of wine dally Is In reality never actually sober WIno causes a lou of at least ton per cent In working efficiency It Is not only itself a poison but aids tho action of other poisons such as thoso of con tagionIn his second article December Dr Smith takes up tho relations of alcohol and Ihe community Alcohol as noted above attacks the weakest point Says the writer

PORK CHOPS ARE NO MORE City Man Voices Regret for the Breakfast of His YouthIt Comes to Him Now In Memory Only 1 havo wondered sometimes said tho amiable head of a voracious tam ily why wo didnt havo more griddle cakes wheat and buckwheat and that sort of thing In our house because I am very fond of such cakes and so aro nil too children and of buckwheat cakes In particular I havo a very pleas- antrecollectionWhen a boy I used to have always buckwheat cakes for break fast in winter with fried pork chops or fried sausages and I used to think that that was a breakfast good enough for anybody and I am still of tho same opinion The cakes wo used to mix in a batter pot that was different from any piece of crockery lover saw and that I can see now In my minds eye as plainly as if it stood before me a deep straight sided earthenware pot of a very dark brown glazo hnd In capacity about a gallon and a half and having In ono sldo of Its edgo a pouring lip and on lboother side a handle tho only pot of just that stylo and dimensions that I ever saw and perhaps It was tho only one ever madeAnd wo valued It highly I know that If anything had happened to that pot it would have been regarded as a household calamity familiar to us all as It had become through year after year of use and tho mixing of the bat ter In it was mighty familiar house hold rite tho last thing dono In tho house In winter before wo went to bedEvery morning when tho cakes were cooked thoro was left In tho pot Just enough of tho material to servo as yeast for tho next days batch and every night tho lost thing wo did was to get out the buckwheat hatter pot and mix up In It tho batter for the next mornings cakes and then we would put a loose cover on the pot and then set It near tho kitchen stove whore It would got a little warmth but not too much so that the batter would rise just right And sometimes it would run over but not often for our folks were high experts In making buckwheat batter and usually our bat ter rose Just enough to fill tho pot rising at tho samo tlmo to the highest attainable quality nnd than in the morning tho batter was thinned down a little no that It would spread just grltldloto oat em It seems to me that the pork chops wo had In those days woro bettor than any to bo had now they woro from locally raIsed and fattened pigs and boy were very tender and superior and certainly It would bo difficult to find now such sausagei as wo had thenAnd wo used to oat thoso buckwheat cakes red hot off the griddle with those superior pork chops or those extra superlative sausages and with tho pork or sausage grease on tho rokal morning meal of great do light and glory Ono calculated to tax tho stoutest constitution surely but wo all had cast Iron stomachs and It did us no harm and I havo wondered sometimes why wo couldnt have something of that sort now but she meaning thereby my bettor half tolls mo that cooking cakes means n headache and a burned face and a tired back that cooking cakes fur this family would be an awful task end that It wouldnt do And so hat grand breakfast of buckwheat fed sausages conies to ua now In memory only An AntiAnt Building Itclnforced

Lambing Time Winter Shelter and tho Dog Nulsnnca Munt Be Considered By Walter J Quick M S Ph D Animal Husbandry Virginia AccordIng to the reports collected I the most favorable time for lambs to drop if intended for tho Juno market Is between February 1C and March 1 In order to have lambs drop February 1C the ram should bo turned with tbo ewes about September 15 Lambs dropped before this date suffer the hardships of tho winter and unless tie owes are very liberally fed do not get sufficient milk to make them grow rapidly Those lambs become more or less stunted and have not a plump and attractive appearance when marketed There Is also a greater possibility for loss with these lambs and a much longer ccason for heavy feeding with tho owes making an additional ex penso without n corresponding in crease in weight while lambs dropped after February 15 are less liable to loss from tho most severe winter weatherThis tremendous loss would have boon almost entirely prevented had pro caution been taken at tho proper time as the lambs were apparently strong when born but afterward perished from starvation It Is an exceptional caso when a owe has not sumclent milk to at least keep her lamb alive if she bas been properly fed a month previous to lambing The feed need not bo cxpcnslvo It Is I Stagnant PoolA Breeding Place ror- WormSupply not necessarily succulent although that IB of great ndyantago but It should bo rich In protein palatable di Rottlble and given In liberal amounts at regular Intervals twlco a day Clover cowpea or soy bean hay corn sllago turnips sugar beets and some wellcurednot moldycorn fodder may constitute the greater portion of the bulky ration together with a grain I ration of oats corn bran and A small per cent of linseed oil meal or cotton seed meal These grains are better mixed together but In caso it is do DogProof Fence Cost 65 Cents Per Rod sired to feed any ono alone oats are most suitable Corn alone is not very satisfactory as it has a tendency to produce weakened lambs and a small milk flow It IB very Important to have sufficient feeding room as tho danger from crowding and pushing when ewes are heavy In lamb Is very great and likely to cause some cases of abortionAll should bo separated from tho brooding ewes as soon as the breeding season Is over as abortions frequently occur from bunting by tho ram at feeding time Except in the extreme northern sections all that Is necessary Is sufficient shed room to accommodate tho entire flock without crowding and sheltering them from storms winds nnd draughts Too many have tbo Idea that tho wool of tho sheep provides all theprotcctlon needed In reality sheep are about the most tender of the vari ous kinds of stock and were it not for tho liberal protection provided by na tune moro protection would be necessary than lot any other stock Sheep never thrive If confined to either draughty or close badly ventilated buildings A shed with good protec tion on tho north cast and west and an open southern exposure Is most de- sIrable with an allowance of about 12 squnro feet of floor space per sheep There should bo a warmer arrange ment for ewes when thoy drop In bad weather and each ewe should bo sep arated from the flock when she lambs rho location should be high and dry The building should bo liberally sup- Plied with bedding to prevent dampness tad Insure cleanliness A yard should be attached having a dog proof fence Iloth shed and yard should be Supplied with feeding troughs allow If ample trough room for each abcoo I Frequently a lamb can be saved if an attendant Is present af tho proper tlmo Tho young ewes especially often require assistance In lambing If a ewe does not drop her lamb within a reasonable length of time after Jabor pains aro noticeable there Is a cause for tho delay Frequently a lamb is coming with Its bead bent back over Its shoulder or perhaps twins are com ing together or some other unnatural position A little manipulation of tho foetus will frequently straighten out the difficulty thereby saving the Ufo of tho lamb and not Infrequently that of Uio owe Some eyes refuse to own their lambs and other owes refuse to let the lambs nurse Some owes will ac cept strange lambs When a ewo loses her lamb it Is advisable to keep up her milk flow by milking as she will frequently accept a strange lamb It It is given to her soon attar lambing Frequently a set of triplets or twins are dropped by a ewe and she has not sufficient milk to nourish all If the ewo that has lost her own lamb Is placed In a close pen and away from uther sheep sho will readily adopt one of the twins or triplets thereby rata ing a good lamb instead of running Idle and becoming too fat for breeding tho following season An orphan Iamb Parasites Especially tho Stomach Running Water may often be given a ewo that has just lost n lamb If the dead lamb Is rubbed over the strange lamb while wet or tho skin of the dead lamb tied on the orphan since tho owes affec Ions aro directed by the odor of her lamb In many sections tho dog nuisance is a great detriment to tho sheep in dustry Tho direct loss from severe chasing and worrying Is oftun not so great as tho loss that follows Breed- Ing ewes that have been badly worried and frightened rarely if over entirely recover The result is usually weak and inferior lambs at tho next lambing season with some abortions and many abnormal presentations of the foetus In fact many breeders of registered sheep consider their breeding flock al most ruined after having been severely chased by dogs Frequently a largo number of owes will not breed for some time aftor being chased and badly frightened The efficiency of any dog law depends largely on its enforcement but too frequently it is never enforced many worthless dogs being allowed to run at largo that would bo controlled or destroyed If a rigid dog law was en forced Ono of our illustrations shows a dog proof

government The report Issued by Mr Nelson for the Committee states that such a privilege on the part of the Bureau of Corporations would en able tho executive branch of the government to protect pet trusts and monopolies by giving them free dom from prosecution with a to nrIgumentIs remembered that the trusts have been objecting to the proposition on the groud that they could be killed by the Bureau of Corporations at the tatters will Instead of being given immunity by it The chances are that If the Bureau of Corporations which Is of course directly under con trol of the President were given the power to say whether or not a monopoly is lawful it would offend the trusts by Its harshness and the zealots by its leniency Perhaps a bill that Is attacked from both sides may be found to be pretty nearly IsI and fair to both Mr very anxious to see such an arrangej went made and he has ed In the preparing of the bill which embodies it by the Civic Federation and by some of the best minds In the country TRICK ON THE SENATE Ono reason why the Senate Is so fearful that the executive would shield corporate offenders may be found In an amusing trick which the President has recently played on that august body Two years ago when the Steel Trust the Tobacco Trust and several others were first be- Ing investigated by the Government It was found that the only means of getting hold of their books and ascertaining the true conditions ot af fairs could only be brought about for a time at least by promising Im munity from prosecution on the basis of the evidence which the companies should give to tho Government Now the Senate wants to Investigate the merger of the Tennessee Iron and Coal Co with the Steel Trust and was about to send for the evidence in the hands of the Bureau oC Corporations which that Bureau had obtained only on the promise that it should not be used against tho com pany In order to keep his word with the Steel Trust which he seems to think it Is entitled to honest treatment Mr Roosevelt sent and got tho pa pers In question and has placed them under his own care in the White House The President of the United States Is the only person who cannot be compelled to submit to search by the Senates investigators and so he has taken this novel method ot protecting the good faith of his Bureau This has led to the unfavor able report on the Civic Federation Bill In part at any rate That the postal savings banks bill may be passed Is the result ot Postmaster General Meyers atate ment to the House Committee that ho Is willing to have the

see ing a largo rattle snake coiled on the marble Slab In the window licking Its forked tongue and sounding its rotttles in warning that It was ready to spring at the trembling teller Mr Burnam gave a

no time In scrambling aroun tho counter and Into the front of tho room The snake continued to come and Burnam Stockton and Allman hustled over to the high wire network which surrounds tho counter Just as he reached the top Capt Allman continuing to run fired a shot at the snake the ball making a sight wound which only the more infuriated the reptile On it came up tho counter the three men making tall tracks for tho directors room in the rear of the building By straining every muscle they beat his snake ship to the room by an eyelash as horsemen say quickly slamming tho door Seeming to realize that it could not reach its prey the snake here coiled and settled down to guard duty until the men dare to appear The shot from Capt Allmans revolver attracted a large crowd be fore tho bank and the cause of the trouble was soon ascertained Ben Banks was among tho crowd on the street and going to his store next door procured a shot gun Slipping quietly Into tho front door of tho bank he emptied both barrels into the coiled reptile the imprisoned and frightened Burnam Stockton and All man emerged from the bank room and the building was soon filled wit people eagerly listening to the ex
