hospital five at tho homo of L P McWhorter and two at tho Casteol residence opposite All the cases seem light and are doing wellTho mildness of tho cases which started the epidemic was the causo of

but It Is believed that It was from him that tbn cases of John McQuIn and Miss Amelia McWhorter were conrtact ed McQulns case was recognized he was quarantined and so far as known no ono caught It from him Miss McWhorter did not recognize that she had smallpox and continued going about hor duties Finally the doctors attention was called to it and ho decided that sho did have tho disease and ordered a quarantine But by that time ninny wore Infected and cases began to appear rapidly- It la believed now however that most of tho damago has been found and that thero will be little further trouble There aro ono or two suspi cious cases and they aro carefully watched Tho tlmo for more cases either from McQuIn or Miss MoWhor tor has passed and unless somo of those now sick managed to give the disease to their friends before they were quarantined thoro should be no more cases It is practically certain that there will bo no more among those living in tho college buildings Tho possi

for the Republican Nomination for County Judge in KockcMtle County OUR NEW PRESIDENT Before the next issue Of The Citizen reaches its readers we will have a new president Theodore Roosevelt after seven years of great service will be succeeded by William H Tuft the choice of the people of this country whose election against the forces of bythetration so full of satisfaction and of promise for the welfare of this countryIt a foregone conclusion that Mr Taft will continue the Roosevelt policies The politicians who hud been hoping for a change of policy are already seeing disappointment Mr Tafts methods will be different from Roosevelts and on this fact the opponents of the farmer had built much hope Now that it is seen that tho difference will be merely one of method not of aim there will be more confidence among the rye patriots who have followed Roosevelt v problemsbroughtby the pubMc sentiment aroused by the retiring president he will antagonismsIlooseveltin the law and therefore better fitted than Roosevelts to grasp and solve the questions which with which he must work He will have iu his work a steadiness and quiet force almost as powerful as that of his predecessorand less likely to rouse opposition Great things are to he expected of the next four years and they will be more fruitful in constructive legislation than any since the war thingshappeuto try to do things too lasthis problems are too many and too heavy to permit ofany lightning solution It will take the full term of his office to accomplish even the most important of his plans but sonic of these plans have now been hanging fire for seventeen years Alreadythatits strength By a simple announcement that notlfllke reform bill would get past the White House he compelled real reform in spite of the powerful men who wished to continue certain of their friends in what amount to public thefts The session to consider this matter will begin March 15 It should last a couple of months and finally place the tariff out of the realm of politics for several years to come policiesMrtho end of his term we may certainly expect to see laws for the following beneficial things on our national statue books postRegulating of securities of all railroads or other cor porations doing inter state business in such a way as to enable propertiesPreventing courts in disputesEstablishingwill take from tho lands of Wall Street bankers the power they now hold over countryRegulating Federal courts in such a way as to greatly hasten the adjudication of cases Establishing n regular forest reserve policy covering the whole of the United States- Establishing a waterways system which shall give the country railwaysProvidiug rich meet their full share of the burdens of government by imposing duties either on large inheritances or ou incomes This programme is a long ono and it willnot come in haste Neither when it is all here will we have a heaven on earth But these will go a long ways toward justice among mon toward financial thiHcountrySothe ripened fruit of progress as this one is mind we are fortunate indeed to have such a nuin as Taft to superintend the harvest Not the least of Roosevelts good work is that he has made it possible for Tuft to take the seat of power after him The good wishes and gratitude of eighty million people follow Roosevelt into his retirement The nation looks to Tuft mid his work with hopeful confidence and the assurance of his worthiness for his great office SHOOTING IN RICHMOND Word was received hero yesterday of the shooting In Richmond

the week hero has been tho attaclron the Naval Appro prlatlon Bill in the Senate by the antis led by LaFollotte The senators believe that each bill should be discussed on the floor of the Senate aa well as in the Committee which t draws it up The facts on which decisions are based in regard to public policy are brought out and discussed by the Committees but these discus slons are practically private and are not reported in the newspapers The result is that the people OF the Unit ed States do not know the reasons Iwhich Congress has for acting as it docs For example In regard to this Naval Dill the report was made unanimous by the Committee and for all the public knew each of its recommenda tlons wan indisputably correct and not a subject for any important dif terence of opinion But by the die cussions on the floor of the Senate which LaFollette brought about it has been made apparent that the Committee had a tremendous fight within itself in order to come to cer tale decisions It reported for 21 000 ton battleships but a strong minority composed of Its ablest members favored 26000 ton ships It defended the system of having several navy yards for the repair and building of ships on the Atlantic coast but there is serious question whether results would not be gained landhaving only two or three yards having each one of them bigger and better than any one of them can atmpresent Mr LaFollette deserves the thanks of the nation for calling its attention to these vital questions which would not have been thought about at all If the Commltees bill had been passed without discussion as planned On the other hand the old line Sell i ators say that to adopt such a policy on every bill would be to prolong the sessions of the Senate without read They point out that the busl tasterI t S rebels this week have been com posed largely of hot air and have IgnoranceIOn Thursday the attempt was made to hold up the Post Office Appropria tion Bill in the same way Senator Boise Penroso of Pennsylvania Chairman of the Poet Office Committee resented the attack He asked La Follctte whether the latter knew any thing about Post Office matters and LaFollette had to own up that he didenot Penrose then asked him what ho hoped to learn or what he hoped to do for the betterment of the bill by a tow hours discussion Penrose said that it was a useless waste of the countrys tlmo to hold a talkjfeast for the benefit of a few un Unformed Senators who wished to ap reformers In the eyes of the nation LaFollette has laid himself open to this criticism by being very lax in his attendance at the committee meetings whero he ought to bo doing the countrys business Another case of similar criticism was that made by Senator Den Tlll man on Tuesday Senator Dixon of Montana was thunderously attacking the Naval Committee and betraying a good deal of Incidental ignorance of what he was talking about The fiery Tlllman who for all his faults is afhard worker and has done good vice on tho Naval Committee for many years mado a characteristic speech Senator Dixons zeal out runs his discretion Ho has been reading a magazine full of lies It is all well enough to sit on the pin nacle of the Rocky Mountains and criticize the navy but tho opinions Continued on fourth page r DYNAMITEBy TRIO i A True Story Unrevealed for Years I K ImAtL dark and for onthaof tho St r1 T e r the massive walls of King ston penitentiary where the desper ate criminals and all long term con victe of tho Province of Ontario Canada arc confined Within Its gloom precincts occupying separate cells iiro three men whoso sentences are for life English law just but mercl less has seized them In Its Iron grip a grip never to bo relaxed until the angel ot death strikes the fetters from tho limbs of tho prisoners Tho crime for which these three men are undergoing expiation was no ordinary one It Involved a conspir acy against the British government by which through tho use of dynamite a reign of terror was to be inaugurated throughout Canada and thousands ol innocent lives sacrificed Tbo inter vention of fate Providence call it what you will prevented tho outrage from being successful but tho failure of the plot was not owing to any lack of teal on the part of the human in struments employed to carry out the design To Detective John Wilson Murray Is due the credit of having gathered together tho evidence which shed light on the past careers of tho dynamite trio Evidence which proved them to be outside the rank of ordl nary criminals who execute desperate deeds in tho hope of financial gain placed them in tho category omen who would willingly wade through seas of blood to accomplish their political alms At seven oclock on tho evening of April 21 1900 the little Canadian town of Tborold lying along tho waterway of tho Wetland canal within easy walking distance of the Niagara fron tier was shaken to Its foundation by two terrific explosions Masses ot solid rock were torn up by tho shock immense spouts of wa ter leaped high in tho air windowpanes were shattered into minute crystals and for a few awful second tho firm earth trembled as though it tho throes of an earthquake For miles around tho people terror stricken and amazed waited dumbly for the after math a descent of death and destruc tion which would sweep them and their homes Into tho black chaos of ob livion But it did not come the blind gods of chanco had averted a calamity almost too horrible to contemplate Ono of tho eyewitnesses of the explosion was Miss Euphemla Constable n 10yearold girl who lived with hei parents about 300 yards from the lock No 24 She was going to see a friend across tho canal about 620 oclock and when nearing the bridge which la by tho lock caught sight of two men Then came the thunderous roar of the first exploding charge After the first shock Miss Constable lost con uclousnooa and knew nothing of the second explosion Both of the valises lowered into tho lock contained dyna mite They wore fired by fuses and the explosions were not quite simul taneous They broke the castings on the head gate toro up tho banks on both sides of tho lock knocked people over who were sufficiently near smashed windows and shook the coun try roundabout Water surged upward In hugo volumes but the gates hold The dynamiters had blundered by low ering tho dynamite into tho gate pits instead ot into tho gate holes Experts lator showed that there was not suf- ficIent resistance to the explosive mat ter and this fact alono prevented the dlro disaster that would have followed If the dynamite had done the work planned for It and had smashed the gatesA man who had been seen iIaround with them before the explo who was staying at the Ros II house at the falls was also arrested Tho third suspect gave his name as Karl Dallman and tho two men first secured declared themselves to bo John NoUn and John Walsh The throe prisoners wero taken to Wetland Jail and while other soldiers patrolled the canal Murray who bad been sent for Immediately after tho explosion arrived on tho scene and hastened to tho jail Ho communicated at once with Scot land Yard and sent descriptions and photographs of the prisoners to the pollen of London England Noun and Walsh seemed unmistakably to be from across tho see and Walsh had j particularly tho manner and speech of a man just over In search of Infor mation regarding the movements of the men on this continent ho visited New York and saw friends there both In and out of the police business Ho also made journeys to Philadelphia Washington Virginia and other points r I whither the trail led Tho results of his persistent quest were as follows In the year 1894 three young men set sail for America They were John Noun a young machinist John Row an a mechanic and John Merna a mechanic They arrived in New York and on May 17 1894 Morna declared his intention of becoming a citizen of the United States took out his first papers and gave his residence as No 41 Peck slip New York NoUn went to Philadelphia Tho four Johns after spending a few days in Philadelphia went to New York They stopped at the lodging houso of John M Kerr 45 Peck slip and hung about New York until December 1899 when Rowan returned to Ireland and went to work at his trade In Dublin Nolln and Walsh applied to tho South Brooklyn branch of the Amalgamated Society of Machin ists for donation money which amounts to 3 per week for those out of work and the request was compiled with by Jchn A Shearman secretary of the society who worked In the Pioneer M chino works in Brooklyn In the latter part of this month Nolln Walsh and Moran went to Washing ton D C Noun remained thero a short time and then went on to Richmond Va where ho obtained a job as fitter in a foundry On Christmas day 1899 Merna went to work as bartender In a Wash ington saloon at 212 Ninth street of which Joseph McEnerney was proprietor and on January 1 Walsh was given a similar position In tho same saloon They relieved each other at tho bar and shared a room together over tho saloon They worked as bar tenders for McEnerney through Janu ary and February and along into March while Nolln stayed on in the Richmond foundry Early in March Karl Dallman had registered at the Stafford house in Buffalo and bad non goue away On Monday evening March 12 Mcr na was found dead In his room over the saloon Somewhere about April 10 1900 NoUn received a communication from a lodge to which ho belonged known in secret circles as tho Napper Tanrty club It was a Clan na Gael organi zation and the members met at Tom Moores hall corner of Third avenue and Sixteenth street In New York Noun and Walsh were both affiliated AT EACH END OFTHE LOCK JTOOD ONE OF THE TTEN ND EACH HAD A VALISE with this club having been Introduce Into It by n man named Jack Hand a sailor Nolins instructions sent to him In Richmond were to go to Washington get John Walsh and go with him to Philadelphia where at the Phila delphia g Reading railroad station at 7 p m on Saturday April 14 they would meet a third man who would give them further Instructions Noun obeyed the summons promptly and hastened to Washington from whore accompanied by Walsh ho went to Philadelphia as Instructed As they stood In the station at tho appointed time a welldressed stout man came up and accosted them Their replies being satisfactory the stranger said- I am tho man you want to see and engaged them in earnest conversation- At the conclusion of their talk the stout man handed 100 to NoUn with two railroad tickets and sleeping car coupons from Philadelphia to Buffalo over the Lehigh Valley railroad Ho then loft them and Noun and Walsh took the Lehigh Valley train for Buf falo They arrived In the latter city at noon on April 15 went direct to the Stafford house and registered as John Smith of New York and Thomas Moore of Washington They were as signed to room 88 and immediately ordered up drinks While waiting for the refreshments there was a knock at the door and Dallman stepped Into the apartment lie introduced himself and a satisfactory understanding was reached between the trio Dallman told them to prepare for an early start next day and after breakfast on the follow- Ing morning April 16 he gave to No inn and Walsh two canvas grips or telescopesIn of these grips were about 80 pounds of dynamite mixed to the consistency of stiff dough Fuses wero with each cake lying on top but unattached It was shortly after this that the nearcatastrophe occurred Karl Dallman the arch plotter In the conspiracy turned out to be an even more picturesque character than Murray had suspected before com mencing his Investigations For fol towing un one clue after the other the iletectlvo became aware that the so called Dallman of Trenton New Jersey was none other than Luke Dillon of Philadelphia who had figured prominently In the worldfamous Cronin case Dillon was a member of the executive committee of the Clan na I Gaol and defended that organization and publicly championed It achieving more than national notoriety when In his official capacity he went to China go at the time of the murder of Dr Cronin At that time he denounced Alexander Sullivan raised funds for the prosecution of those accused ot Cronlns murder advocated the throw ing off of tho path of secrecy so far as necessary to run down the assassins went on the witness stand and by his testimony revealed tho secret of the Triangle the chief three who had ruled as the executive of the Clan naGael made public tho charges against Sullivan and fought through out on the side of the antlSulllvan wing The Identification was made absolute and final Men who knew Luke Dillon who had worked day by day near him visited Karl Dallman and Identified him positively as the former high official of the Clanna Gael But above all Murrays careful un erring tracing of the chief suspects career convinced the Canadian government that Dallman and Dillon were one Originally Dillon was a shoema ker In 1881 he was working at his trade at 639 Paul street Philadelphia Tho members of tho dynamite trio were brought up for trial on 25 1500 With tho mass of damning evi dence accumulated by Murrays pa tient efforts and submitted to the court there could bo but one result As the clock struck six on the even- Ing of May 26 tho jury retired to con sider the verdict Four minutes later they reentered court and tho three prisoners wero declared guilty The dynamiters were sentenced to Impris onment for life and taken to Kingston penitentiary For two years after the trio entered upon their prison life the general pub lie knew nothing cf the Identity of Karl Dallman Then a Buffalo paper made known tho fact telling of his connection with tho Cronin affair The story was denied by some of Dillon friends who asserted that he had been killed during tne South African war while fighting with tho Boer ar my against the

And lower Ing tho resisting power of nature he said was an active cause of consumption and typhoid fever and was no countable for over 80 per conL of all cases of pneumonia In fact thorn was no

laws which move with the same exactness and certainty as any other operation In natureTho present efforts of laymen and societies to correct and prevent this evil as a moral one he stated was and reflection on tho stupidity of the medical profession They are particularly trained to understand tho phenomena and tho Import of the alcoholic problem and yet as a class they have practically Ignored It and left tho subject to enthusiastic reformers with equal propriety and sense The medical profession in tho near future wIll bo the teachers and leaders of the campaign against alcohol There is

RECORDS FOR SAILING None Other to Compare with Achievement ofOur Fleet the fabled cruise of the Ar SINCE of old there have been many famous cruises In history but none that can compare either In mag nitude of vessels or In length of miles to the great world crulso just finished by our fleet When Admiral Rojestvcnsky took his doomed ships from tho Baltic to tho Sea of Japan this was heralded to all tho world as the greatest armed cruise in history and so it was up to that time Yet apart from tho sin gular fact that these Russian fighting ships were foredoomed to disaster what a miserable achievement It was as compared to tho magnificent resist less onward sweep of our own fight ing ships From first to last tho cruise of the Russian fleet was attended by mis Naps false starts false alarms ogre glows blunders and humiliations of all kinds Even after the Russian ships had at last got out into the open sea after their ludicrous battle with the British trawlers on tho Dogger banks they had to put into every neu tral port along tho way tor coal and provisions only to bo humored or or deMd out again according to the good will of the various port authorities Then nearly six months had to be spent at Madagascar In refitting yet during all that time so Admiral Ro Jeetvcuskys second in command has testified none of tho crows of any of the Russian war ships was drilled in target practice- In abort nothing could be more dif event than this sad record of the Rus sian fleet commanders while sUamlrg around Africa and up Into tho China seas and our own proud record while our 1C battleships two cruisers six torpedo halts and an auxiliary fleet of supply ships and colliers steamed around Ube world Significant Historical Fact To tho historian It cannot b it ap pear aa a significant thing that all other previous great cruises In history with the exception of those un dertaken by Englishspeaking sailors have only resulted In disaster and shame There was tho great crulso of the Spanish armada for Instance launched against England by Philip If of Spain which ended In such utter rout and disaster About tho same time In tho far cast tho Japanese conqueror Hideyoshl un dertook tc subjugate Korea and China with a foimldablo fleet of sumo 750 war Junks many of thorn armed with brass canton yet his float too was overcome in fair fight by tho com bined war fleets of China and Korea w Then thorn were those ambitious naval projects of the great Napoleor resulting in the famous French cruiser to Egypt and afterward to tho West Indies and back only to end In those ever memorablo disasters to French sea power at the battle of tho Nile and at Trafalgar Second Spanish Armada Coming down to more modern times no one can have forgotten that ill fated cruise of another Spanish aN mada under Admiral Cervera which ended In tho total loss of Spanish sea power at Santiago do Cuba All these cruises like that of Ro Jestvensky were remarkable not only for their tragic endings but for the series of blunders follies and rats haps that attended Uiem from first to lastHow different in comparison with Nelson and Blake or even such an early long war crulso as that achieved by old Admiral Drake when ho sailed his puny fighting ships all the way from England around tho Horn and up to our own waters near what is now Drakes bay When President Roosevelt gave his first order that tho Atlantic fleet should start for its practice cruise to the Pacific from Hampton roods all the European naval experts on the continent permitted themselves to doubt whether our ships could ever begot ready In time and whether the long cruise could ever bo accom pllshed without serious disasters Bui every English speaking sallormat know lu his heart that tho great fleet would be all ready and would start exactly on time to the minute as It did Had Confidence In Fleet What Is more we all knew that the great fleet would swing around the world looking In at the Hawaiian Islands the Philippines Into China and Japan and back again without the slightest shade of doubt hi the soul of any American that the fleet would always acquit Itself well hnd achieve what it set out to do This indeed Is the great thing that has been accomplished by the fleet For tho first time in history the Pacific ocean has been put into commis sion This Is a great fact a great achievement the results of which can never be changed or lost Henceforth In tho worlds history the Pacific ocean which first came Into Interna tional prominence only with Doweys great victory In Manila bay and the Japanese victories in their own wa ters will loom up In historical Impor tance ns did tho Mediterranean before Columbus great cruise opened up the AtlanticA result even than this en vlablo achievement during tho foots world cruise perhaps is the moral im pression made upon tho world at large by the majestic appearance and efficiency of our ships while under tho eyes of foreign observers Philip and

scholars reading aloud I speak to tho experience probably of many when I say that utterance aloud is oftep a very powerful aid to mental retentiveness says Joseph Parker It is more than this reading aloud helps us to understand tho meaning of tho Word For In order to read well wo must understand every shade of tho meaning or we will misinterpret Gods Word A monotonous singsong woodeny or artificial reading such as we often hear comes very near to being a crime for It de prives the Word of Its natural mean lag and makes the hearers inatten tive or repels them from the Word Those who wish to know tho truth take great pains and spare no ex pense to obtain it Young people often say that It Is hard to become interested In reading the Scriptures But If anyone reads them in order to

doing the countr a service in calling attention to the Committee system but they hae not yet shown that It Is not better than to have the nations aftalrs handled by general talk and random oratory on the floor of the Senate by the silvertongued demagogues who would enjoy the leading par in has been called a government by oratoryIA startling turn has been giver to the conservation conference here this week by President Roosevelts t announcement that he has arranged for a European International confer enco at the Hague In Holland next t year on the same subject The strlkI Ing part ot this lies In the fact that Roosevelt himself will undoubtedly be Americas chief representative and will be made the President ot this worldwide organization for saving timber coal waterpower and stone Such a position will put him in n way to do much toward getting the nations of the world Into harmonious friendship and to pave the way for the federation of the world which is one of his splendid dreams Thus we can see at last the answer to the frequently asked question What will become of Roosevelt when he quits the Presidency at only tift years of age- Anolher momentous development of the week is the news of what J Ir Tuft will do to Congress during his administration Roosevelt has fought 4Congress to try to get It to enact his wholesome measures Taft will Ignore it and leave It alone and will occupy himself with working toward his ends by the many and powertul means which the President has at his command Independently of Congress He will arouse the countrys Interest and enthusiasm on the propositions in which he Is Interested by taking steps through his execu tlve power He will say nothing to Congress about it but that body will find Itself forced to deal with the things he does In order to keep up with the procession lie has now made the announcement that the extra session of Congre for revising the tariff will be caned for March JGlh He has also said that no legislation will be asked It on the matter of Government regulation of big business the trust and so forth He Is getting as mat lawyers as possible on his Cabinet and will spend the time between now and next winter In discussing with them the best means ot handling the question of great monopolies and the railroads BO that he will have a good plan thoughtfully prepared bmen who know most about the matter t On Sunday the statement was mope that he will spend his summer vacation In Alaska The passage of extravagant appn t prlations of money Is now certain Congress will spend more than ever in the history of the nation this win termore than even In the days ot the Civil Warand will run us a hundred millions of dollars Into deb It seems to be the policy of the Government to help out on ever little matter nowadays and conservative statesmen are stifling their opln on that America Is rapidly approach Ing paternalism President Rooseve this week has recommended two more of his famous commissions One Is tor preserving the data from which history may be written The other Is a Childrens Bureau to preside over orphans and helpless children who have hitherto been the care of the individual states and counties The Sundry Civil Bill presented this week provides for the next years work on the Panama Canal but for none beyond that time the intention being to provide tor It in future ever year Instead of voting a lump sun at once to do the whole business It also provides for money to detec land frauds In the west giving II million dollars for this purpose The secret service Is to act only In pre venting counterfeiting and in guard ing the person ot the President A trial is to be given to the plan ol sending large packages or parcels by t mall as is done in other countries The rural delivery of mall was begun In this way Congress called It a wild scheme but made a small appropriation In order that It might be tried It proved so successful that even Congress could not deny the wisdom of establishing It everywhere The parcels post may do the same It Is to be tried in two counties- It seems now that Arlzonla and New Mexico will not be made states Juat now Some of the Senators do not like personally the representa isof these territories who would probably become Senators and out of personal dislike are postponing the admission of the new states The Government has found out that

J Azbill Berea iATTACK ON THE PRESIDENT From Tho Chicago Tribune By Raymond Washington Feb 6Specials- e J o who studies in a dUpaaalona way political events of the last yes and more particularly of the last fe w monthli can fall to be Impressed with- the existence of an organized effort to discredit and dethrone tho present president of the United States Theodore Roosevelt He will go out of office as he came Into it fighting but unlike his en trance his exit will uaquestlonabl see him sustained by the votes of- the many To a certain extent the following of Roosevelt Is unreasonab and the opposition to him Is concentrated but on the basis of mere oles he would probably win as readily today after attacks made upon him In congress and elsewhere as he would have done If he had been the candle- date at the election last November In fact one is Impressed with the- belief that there Is a certain clement of cowardice In demonstration against the president now because one Is- sure of the fact that If the same attacks had been made upon him a year ago the result would have boon beyond all question to force him to become a candidate for reelection In seltdetense and his candidacy would- have meant that he Instead of Taft- would be scheduled for inauguration on the fourth day of next March What strikes me as singular is tint imlnlty with which the attacks on Mr Roosevelt are delivered No one- seems to question the wisdom or unwisdom of things ho has actuall- done lie is not criticised because ol the rate bill or the pure food meas ure or tho Illegal but summary oo- ttlement of the anthracite coal strike or in fact for anything else which has been really accomplished Tho serious attacks on the president have been made at all times in an indirect manner and in no case has he failed to respond In a lively fashionDuring the whole of the presldents administration there has not bcen apparently a single thing his enemies could seize upon as official action for basis of Impeachment or even theI suggestion of such a thing and within tho last six months and In fact ever since tho Chicago conen tlon Mr Roosevelt has been subjected to a system of assults such as has never been witnessed In tho case of any other American president PANAMA CASE AS AN INSTANCE Take for Instance the Panama cana case which is now being tried out InI a desultory sort of fashion by tho federal courts In tho District of Columbia and New York City Tho Panama canal was purchase ban act ot congress and It there was any breath of suspicion In connection with that transaction Il concerned senators and representatives who pasr ed the law by an overwhelming voto Including both Democrats and Republicans in each house rather than lhe president who merely approved the bill when It was presented to him Whether the libel proceedings JlOW In the hands of judicial authorltle are successfully prosecuted or not It Is worth while stopping a 1110ment just to think that since these charges were tint mado In the heat of nllol Itlcal campaign there has not been submitted for edification of the Ilubllc a single scrap of evidence to mtb stantlato them CASE OF TENNESSEE MERGEI ItI Much tho same state of affairs ex- Ists In regard to the sale of the stock Jt the Tennessee Coal and Iron company to the United States Steel corporation As in the case of Panama this transaction excited no serious criticism at the tlmo although the facts were known of all mOll Congress was In session for months ifter the deal was consummated and If there was any dereliction of Ilut In the matter members of the 110use md senate were just as guilty as resident for they had It In theI power then more than a year ago aako the Investigation which thl are now only beginning It Is apparent in these two Instances that determined efforts have been made to attack tho personal record at President Roosevelt and these attacks havo hewn almost entirely aaille rom the facts In these two Instances cited th8- havo been connected a long time f- ter the alleged offenses by the llrMI dent and In neither has there et been offered for the scrutiny of th public a scrap of evidence entitled to serious

vaccination Altogether over five hundred have been ollomtld upon None of these have had un- serious trouble and In tact there II- Inol a doctor In town who Inns ever vaccinated became III had a patient iy way dangerous Tho only source of danger lies In- the fact that some selfish persona think moro of their own convenience than of the health or lives of their lends and neighbors It Is alwas tho case when there Is an cplden that some try to break quarantl and carry the deadly genus eve whore It Is scarcely possible for a- person to do more wicked act In- tho first place there Is no telling how bad a case may bo contracted trom a very mild one Some years aKa 118 Coyle died from Bmalljx contracted from her son tho the sons case was so light that he hardly ent to bed A man going from a houMI where there Is a very light calle might easily take death to a frlond or acquaintance and would flurely be responsible In the sight ot God for- the others death In tho second place breaking quarantine Is against the law and any one who does It- IS liable to Jail sentence and fine I Any man who does such a thing Isa public enemy and should be reported by every one that sees hint He Is just as dangerous as a mallI running wild with a gun It not more so and every man ho meets and- every man who has children on the- street who might be affected Is entitled to consider that man an enemy It Is only from such men as thl8- that there Is any danger here nov It there are none such tho cpldemlI- will be controlled easilybut a slnglo- man might cause a hundred cases It Is expected that tho whole town- will cooperate with tho doctors and- that we will have no trouble I In order to enable people to know- when they are coming down with- the smallpox It is worth while to- tell what the first symptoms are At- tlrst there comes backache headach sensitiveness of the eyes and Gen- erali fooling of sickness This lasts- fromI two to four days and then tho- patient apparantely gets well nut- after i twelve to thirty six hours a- breaking I i out appears That is small pox and as soon as tho first rash Is In sight tho person Is ready to- give the disease Therefore if any ono has the symptoms of grippe 01- hard cold and then seems to got- better they ought to STAY HOME for at least three days to be sure that thero is not going to be an attack or smallpox It every ono In town- does this there will hardly bo another I caseThero has been very little excitement among the students about tho- matter i except when some ono has- touched their sore arms Only twelvo- have been excused because of the- smallpox so far and there is yet no sign that any more are going tho- some may School affairs are going on as usual and will continue to do so There are already nearly six hundred students who have boon Vaccinated tine number Is Increasing all tho time and as none of those boys and girls can get the disease there is no danger of any general sickness In the school Several ot those that have gone home havo done so because their parents sent for them and would have preferred to stay Inure Just a word about vaccination That Is the only known preventive for smallpox and there is no sure cure Dangers which used to bo attached to tho process have been entirely taken out of It Out of tine five hundred odd that have been vaccinated this time and the several hundred he has vaccinated before Dr Cowley has never had a single case of bad arm Robert Howard a former student and now a sergeant In the Hospital Corps of thatInever known ot a case of bad arm The vaccination Is a nuisance It hurts for a few days and may lay FOU up In bed for a day or BO but there is absolutely no danger under modern methods as is proved by the ixporlenco of all the people that havo tried It hero and It Is a sure tl Ive for the disease The one surefJthing about a smallpox epidemic Is that It will not bother the people who save been vaccinated THE MARKET Berea Prices Apples

keeping people well and when their patients fall ill their weekly check isstopped The Chinesejudgeamedicalf man not by thenumberof years he lives but by the length of time his clients Survive An advertising medium must be judged in the sam way The fact that it has age to its credit isnt so important as the age ofits advertising patronage Whenever a newspaper continues to display the store talk of the same es tablishment year after year its a pretty sure sign that the merchant has made money out of that newspaper because no publication can continue to be a losing investment to its cus tomers over a stretch of time without the fact being discovered And when a newspaper is able to boast ofan honor roll ofstores that have continued to appear in its pages for a stretch of decades it has proven its superiority as plainly as a mountain peak whichrises above its fellows The combination of stability and progress is the strongest virtue that a newspaper can pos sess Only thefit survive reputation is a difficult thing to get and 3 harder thing to holdit takes merit to earn it and character to maintain it There is a vast difference between fame and notoriety and just as much difference between a famous newspaper and a notorious one Just as a manufacturer is always eager to install his choicest stocks in a store which has t earned the respect of the community just so a retailer should be anxious to insert his name in a newspaper which has earned the respect of its readers The manufacturer feels that he will receive a square deal from a store which has age to its credit He can expect as much from a newspaper which is a credit to its age I The newspaper which outlives the rest does so because it was best fitted toit had to earn the confidence of its readersand keep itsIt had to be a better newspaper than any other and better newspapers goto the homes of better buyers Every bit of its circulatjon has the element of quality and staying power And it is the respectable homeloving element of every communitynot the touts and the gamblers toward which the merchant must look for his business vertebraehe cannot find buyers un less he uses the newspaper that enters their It homes And when lIe does enter their homes I he must not confuse the sheet that comes in the back gate with the newspaper that is de i liveredat the front door Copyright 190S by Trlbupe

sundry civil bill carrying appropriations for the civil expenditures of the federal government for the fiscal year begin nlng July 1 1909 which was reported to the house Friday is notable in more than cno respect First it carries the largest appro priations of any bill of Its kind the aggregate being 13702207093 which Is 3130070145 In excess of the appro- prIations for the current fiscal year In the second place it reenacts thE provision placing a limitation upon the promiscuous transfer of secret service agents to which tho president took such serious exceptions and which led to tho controversy between him and congress during this session In another respect the bill deserves at tenon and that Is the liberal manner In which tho committee has provided the various Executive departments with funds to carry on Investigations of fraud and violations of tho law For example It gives 1000000 to the secretary of the interior for tho protection of the public domain and tho Investigation of entries of public lands This is double tho amount ap propriated last year and tour times the sum given him two years ago Tho committee also showed its kind ly feeling toward Mr Garfield by In eluding an item of 2500000 for tho erection of a new building for the uso of the land and Indian bureau the reclamation service and the geological survey all of which are branches nf the Interior department The bill car- rIes many Items of local Interest In the Ohio valley states For rivers and harbors In the Ohio valley tho following amounts were authcrized The Ohio river below

210000 For the enforcement of Section 20 of the Hepburn bill 350000 Is appro priated the same as last year The sum of 350000 was voted a year ago only after the president had written to the speaker and had called i several members of the white house to consult on tho subject Testimony taken by the committee showed that during the seven months of the pros ent year only 41000 of the fund fwd been expended and in this amount was included the salary of 12 examin ors for whom maintenance wad sug gested by the committo a year ago from another fund In the bill the president Is authorI- zed with the consent of the Republic of Cuba to invite proposals for re- movIng the wreck of the battleship maine from Havana harbor and to communicate with congress as soon as may be practicable estimates based upon the proposals received there under The largest Item In the bill Is for continuation of wrrk on the Panama canal For this purpose 33638000 Is approprirted or 4000000 more than Is carried In the current sundry civil appropriation bill frr that expenditure There will be a deficiency this year of about 5000000 The second largest Item Is 19574514 for rivers and harbors construction work author

grow- Ing state contain the proper propor Hon of nutrients to enable a dairy cow to produce the maximum amount of milk of which she Is capable The winter ration on the other hand is liable to have these nutrients out of proportion This Is one point where in common practice falls far short of continuing tho summer conditions throughout the winter Tho feeding of a ration not properly balanced Is one of the most common mistakes made on tho average farm In the corn belt on account of the usual abun dance and cheapness of corn and corn fodder Many farmers have corn fodder and timothy bay for roughness and prac tlc t1y nothing in the way of grain but tern From such a selection of feeds It Is Impossible to make a ratlca that supplies tho necessary nutrients for heavy production of milk It la possible to make a fairly goad ntloa using these feeds for rough ncso but it Is only possible to do so by buying large quantities of mill Holstein Wonderful CowProduction Year 19078 Pounds of 47796 of 362 r 1 feeds that are rich in protein The thing for tho farmer to do Is to raise the feeds ho requires on his own farm as far as and It is possible to produce practically all that Is needed to make a balanced ration Tho place to begin in considering tho feeding of an animal Is with the rough ness slnco the character of the rough ness determines to a large extent the kind of grain it is advisable to feed Tho cheapest source of protein Is In legiminous hays including clover al falfa and cow If an abundant supply of any one of those hays Is on hand the problem of making an cconomlial balanced ration is very much simplified Tho use of these hays makes It unnecessary to cottonseed meal for ordinary dairy cows and makes it possible that the principal grain used be which usually Is our cheapest grain Even cow or alfalfa hay alone with corn for grain makes a fairly good ration for an ordinary dairy cow and a ration could be substituted good results for that of timothy hay and corn fodder When hay is purchased it is best to purchase ono of the kinds mentioned as the price is about tho same or lower than that of timothy which Is far as a milk producing food It any hay Is to be sold from the farm it should be hay and not clover or cow pea ba- yFEEDS SEEDSAND WEEDS A Danscr to Uio Farm By E It Jenkins Director Connecticut Experiment Station There are a number of mixtures sold as feeds which contain largo quantities of seeds of undesirable and weeds of which a considerable portion are alive and will under proper conditions promptly germinate and grow The weed seeds are always quickly by casual Inspection because they aro variously mixed chaff and oat bulls with linseed barley and products and aro often mixed or smeared molasses These facts aro naturally not tioned in tho statements of composl Lion yet they aro more important to he buyer than tho chemical analysis- A moderate food value may be granted to ground weed seeds or to omo species ot them but It Is very loubtful It small whole seeds are broken up anti digested by tho animal It has been proved that fermenting manure kills many weed seeds when hey are kept In It for some but ommon experience fully the belief that tho farm may bo stocked with weeds which com along with the manureWeed seeds which are abundantly wherever feed and reed residues are scattered will surely make their appearance lu the fields Thus charlock appeared last year quite abundantly on the station land whore It had not been sceji for 26 years at least On aearchlne for tba BEST COW The third summer condition which we desire to continue throughout the winter is that of a supply ot succu lent feed By the term succulent feed is meant feed having that property possessed by green grass Such feed has a value outside of the actual nutrients It contains on account of Ita favorable effect upon the digestion of tho animal Thero are two methods In uso for supplying this succulent feed during the winter season One is the use of root crops and the other tho uso of silage In some parts of the world tho uso of root crops la almost universal and is the solution of the problem In this state the uso of sllago is far moro practical however than the use of root crops and for that reason It Is recommended ex elusively for this purpose The following rations supply tho necessary material to produce milk economically If tho cow will glvo a good flow of milk In tho early part of tho milking period and when fed a liberal amount of one of these rations It indicates she Is not adapted by na turo to bo as a dairy cow and

justifies scattered not used should be disposed of Tho amounts given are considered about right for the cow giving from 20 to 25 pounds of milk a day For heavy milking cows these rations would have to bo Increased especially In the grain and for light milking cows the grain shouldtbo decreased In making up rations It Is designed that the cow bo given all the roughness she will cat and sufficient amount of grain to fur nosh the proper amount of digestible material It is not designed that theso rations should bo sufficient or best adapted for cows that are being fed for making records for which

it appeared that the Junkoa or snowbirds had been fed with wheat screenings on a flat root In the neigh borhood during a severe winter and tho charlock seeds In tho screenings had no doubt been blown from the roof to tho lawn Certain manufacturers claim to destroy the vitality of tho weeds which they mix with feed but In no one of those above reported has even this measure of protection to the purchas er been thoroughly done Ih has been apparently attempted only In case of the sucrone feeds All of theso weeds aro characteris tic of grain screenings which are tho refuse separated from grain in order to mako the latter marketable or fit t for milling These screenings vary a good deal In quality Thus an analy sis recently made here of wheat screenings showed about 33 per cent of flax and shrunken cereal 16 per cent of foxtails 8 per cent of bind weeds and plgweeds 15 per cent of weed seeds of other species and 21 per cent of dust broken seed and sand Even such a mixture is much batter
