would go Into the Eleventh district Congressman Edwards has secured in appropriations for tho Eleventh district since ho has been in Congress tho neat sum of 990000 and this skins predecessors nearly 1000 000 none of them had ever got appropriations for locks and dams and public buildings Congressman Edwards now has on foot however a movement that Is of tho widest interest and greatest im portanco

stream that will af ford navigation and the purpose of tho Cincinnati Southern Railroad will bo fulfilled This splendid system of railroad was built at a great expense from Cincinnati through tho heart ot the blue grass and mountains of Kentucky for the purpose of develop ing tho territory It was built for tho purpose oe helping tho merchants ot Cincinnati and when these works proposed by Congressman Edwards ire completed then tho people of the counties In Southeastern Kentucky that can only bo reached now with the horse and wagon will receive all of the benefits of tho cheap living of a city Burnsldo will become the great distributing point for the Cincinnati and Louisville merchants This section Is not densely populated now but with the navigable stream which Congressman Edwards

dis world am ez big de udder way ez it am dis a way it suttinly am a whopper yourlife4jTAFT MAKES GOOD The passage of tho Corporation Tax Law and there is now greatsuccessany scored by Roosevelt against the trusts and corporations It is a complete refutation of those who t believed that Taft would not carryon Roosevelts work and shows clearly that there will be no backward step taken by the Republican administration on this question which is really the most important before the American people today The new law not only provides n means of supporting the government in part from the taxes of those most to pay but it establishes for the first time the principle that the central govern ment bas tho power to regulate corporations of all kinds If the government once has this power it becomes easy to regulate them in any way because those that do not obey any rule the government lays down can easily be taxed to death as issues of bank notes by state banks have been It gives the government a firmer hold than ever before on big trusts and puts the people in a position of great vantage for the coming fight for their rights And the winning of this advantage is due to the wisdom of Taft it proves him a fitting man to carryon the great work Roosevelt begun Those who thought that because Taft did not make the same kind of noise that Roosevelt did he was not going in the same direc tion will have to cure their disappointment and eat their words as best they may SCHOOLS HELP EVERYBODY The new school law is bringing out somo curious things and among them is the wonderful statement by a Blue Grass paper that it is unjust to part of the community to support the public schools out of the general tax fund This brilliant Y paper argues that taxes spent for schools are of benefit only to those who actually go to tho schools It seems to think that the rest of the community gets no returns for money The editor of that paper is so short sighted ho must have to look twice to see his dinner plate There could hardly be a worse mistaken man than the who thinks that because he does not happen to have any children in the school he is not getting any benefit from it and the editor of that Blue paper ought to know it Fortunately that idea is much more common in the Blue Gross than in the mountains and that is why with all its good land and superior opportunities the Blue- Grass is so far behind As a matter of fact a public school benefits every man woman and child in the community It is true that the folks that go get the most out of it for they get benefit both as pupils and as citizens but there is not a single man that does not get benefit and the more taxes he pays the more be benefits That sounds a little strange but it is a fact and a fact that has been proved by all historyand every civilized people It is plain when one stops to think of it A school increases the knowledge of the young folks and thus improves the standing of the community as they grow up They are more intelligent more business like more thrifty more useful and they do more business and earn more money and make better citizens Now every man that is in business is benefited when these things happen and the more business he does on which ofcourse he pays taxes the more benefit he gets from these improvements The people buy more from the merchant they do better work for the employer they contribute more liberally to the support of tho church they pay better salaries to the school teacher they are able to get better doctors in every way they are better to deal with and make business better And the education is what does it Isnt it clear that the bigger a mans business and taxes the more good it will do him to have the community im proved Y Anti then even if a man is not in business at all he gains by any improvement in the community Over in Owsley at the Feder ation School they have found that the price of land has begun to up just because of that school And it is only getting started And it is worth while for a man to live in a pleasant communityand no one doubts that an educated community is better to live in than an ignorant one And so onthere are hundreds of ways in which a thinking man will see that this is true that a public school benefits every one near even if they never go inside the door If the Blue Grass editor would take a little trip up into the mountains be would learn a lot both tho South and Middle Forks of the Kentucky river havo been sur veyed and these rivers can be made navigable up to Owsley Clay Perry and Leslie counties This is the richest coal country in Kentucky An other lock and dam in either of the South or Middle Forks of the Ken tucky river will put tho slack water up to the rich coal veins and there can be plenty oC coal mines right out of the river banks- Congressman Edwards has certainly been lucky for the 105000 Custom house and postofflce at London the 65000 postofflce at Somerset and the locks and dams in tho Kentucky and I Cumberland rivers are evidence ot his energy Ho hopes to get appropriations postofflces at Barbourvllle Wil liamsburg Plnovlllo Corbin Montlcel lc and other places as soon as tho postal receipts In these towns put them in line In tho meantime he will devote energy to locks and dams Congressman Edwards was here yes terday on his way to Washington to resume his duties in Congress TEACHERS BIG MONEY Frankfort July 7School teachers of Kentucky will receive tho largest salaries that they have ever received as a result of tho fixing of the school per capita Tuesday at U

Bill Nearly Done Civil Service Commission Investigation Taft Butts In- Washington D C July 13 1909 Pres Taft has butted in at last After refusing for weeks to express himself on tariff matters he has tin ally let it bo known that he will- tako a hand In the game and make every effort to force tha Congress to redeem the pledges he mado during the campaign It is understood that he will veto the bill unless this is done and that he will require a llberlal interpretation of the pledges too The first question which came up was over the Corporation Tax prov- Ision It was suggested that this might be dropped out but Taft served notice that ho would not sign a tariff bill without that provision in it So the tax will stay It will probably bo ona cent Instead of two bub the important thing is the prin- cIple and that will bo secure Then came other matters of rates in the main tariff bill and It is understood that Mr Taft will demand the following Free hides House rates on iron and steel House rate on lumber Freo crude oil without the counter wailing duty- Senate rate on coal although tho president would prefer that thin commodity be admitted free Senate rates on cotton gloves and hosiery but a cotton schedule generally that the people will approve Washington D C July 11 1909 The tariff bill is now in its final stage A Senate committee and a House committee are trying to bar monize the bill as It passed the House with the bill as It passed tho Senate Probably they will bo done by the middle of next week After a good deal of skirmishing in the early part of last week the Senate finally passed the bill on Thursday night at eleven oclock Mr Aldrich served notice on Thursday morning that he would insist that the Senate pass the bill on that day ty taking oft the seven oclock ad- Journment rulo under which they hail been working and tho Senate obeyed although Mr LaFollette felt forced to make a few final remarks for two hours lato in the evening before he could allow his first oratorical chance at a tariff bill to be extinguished- On Friday the House convened promptly at noon and at 1203 p m the 5I11 was messaged over from the Senate Representative Dalzell as chairman ot the Rules Committee re ported a special resolution by which tbo House disagreed with the 847 am endments to its bill which had been node in the upper house and sent the bill Into conference In the hands ot a committee without Instructions The House Inclined to bo very critical ot the Senate bill and for three hours indulged in an attack upon the wisdom or rather the unwisdom of the Senators The Democrats ot course took the lead in protesting against the raise in the tariff taxes but the Republicans also expressed dislike of the Senates treatment of tho bill However upholders ot the rill were not lacking and they took pleasure In pointing out that to the indignant Democrats that the Democrats of the Senate had been almost as influential as the Republicans in rateraising The insurgent Republican representatives wished to have the Senate amendments thoroughly talked over in the House before sending the bill to conference so that the House conference committee could be Instructed exactly bow to act The thought that this would have prevent ed the conferreea of the two houses from agreeing on the high rates of the Senate bill Their showing was extremely weak however and it appears likely that they will figure very little in House affairs In the future There was a split within the ranks ot the House organization however of a more serious sort Sereno Payne who framed the House bin as Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee has been very much displeased with the rough way in which Senator Aldrich has been handling his schedules and Mr McCall and Hill have shared feelings and have talked against the Senate Increases without reserve Uncle Joe Cannon on the other hand believes In raising protection Just as high as ho possibly can and has been on the most cordial

back acan find him I reckon Then Ill give you tho money at onceHow weak a thing Is man Hero was an eminently coolheaded rea sonable man of affairs who knew that paws which had escaped from the fire un

chance to baffle Atkins as if hit were a hotheaded boy In plain shoulder strapsl Ill do better for you Aunt Rebec ca said he Ill not only take Fire less the money Ill go with him to the house I can make a sneak from here and Atkins is safely downstairs at this moment He may be shadowing Tireless it he is perhaps I can throw him off the track Shus it befell that not an hour later Rupert Winter was guiding the shabby and noisy runabout a second tlmo toward the hunted house Nothing Coin said the joyous apprentice to crime I called old Cary up and got a furious slating for doing I it but ho said thero wasnt a watch dog in sight and the old man had sur rendered He was going to let him Into the library on parole You need a guardian growled the colonelwhere did you telephone Not In the drug store Oh dear no not In such a public place Ive a shrinking nature that never did intrude its private personal affair on the curious world I used the phone of that nice quiet little restaurant where they gave me a lovely meal but were so long preparing it I used up all the literature in sight which was the Ladles Home Journal and a tract on the virtues of Knoxs gelatine When I couldnt think of anything else to do I routed out Cary td smoked all my cigarettes and all my cigars bet one which I was keep irtf for after dinner And Cary rowed u Tood and plenty There wasnt a ems In tin Jwj- jHs

to the Palaco for some othnr purpose and flavor have noticed you My own father wouldnt have gut on to me In bat dinky rig Winter war not so easy in his mind Butt he hoped for Iho best since theeH I was nothing else for him to do They were In sight of the house now which loomed against the dim horizon dark er grimmer than over Where the upper stories were pierced with semi circular arches tho starsown sky shone through with an extraordinary effect of depth and mystery All the lighter features of the architecture carving on pediment or lintel or archl volt delicate Iron tracery of roJas relief of arcaturo and colonnadeall these the dusk blurred if it did not obliterate the great dark bulk of tho house with Its massive buttresses its pyramidal copings and receding upper stories was the moro boldly all houetted on tho violet sky yet be JJlcture jection It seemed unsubstantial hard ly more of reality than the giant shadow It cast upon tho hillside Electric lights wavered and bristled dazzling beams on either side of the street not a gleam red white or yellow leaked through the shuttered windows of the house In its blackness Its si lence 1U determined Isolation it renewed but with a greater force the first sinister thrill which the sight of It had given the man who came to rifle it of its secrets- Lonesomelooking old shanty Isnt it said the Harvard boy seems al most Indecerous to speak out loud Heres whero we cache the car and make a gentle detour by aid of the shrubbery up to the arroyo to the north side of tho patio See He directed the colonels courso through an almost imperceptible open- Ing In tho hedge along sharp turns and oblique and narrow ways Into a small vacant space where the vines covered an adobe hut Jumping out Tracy un locked the door ot this tiny building so that the colonel could run the car Inside and after Winter had emerged again he relocked the door As there was no window tho purpose of the hut was effectually concealed Very neat the colonel approved whereat Tracy flashed his smile at him In the moonlight and owned with Ingenuous pride that he himself was the contriver of this reticent garage From this point ho took the lead Neither spoke They tolled up the hill In this part of the grounds less of tho nature of a hill than of an arroyo or ravine through which rocks bad thrust their rugged sides and over which spiked semitropical cacti had sprawled and purple and white flow ered vines had made their own un tended tangle Before they reached the level the colonel was breathing hard every breath a stab Tracy a famous track man who had won his H In a wonderful crosscountry run felt no distress until he heard his companion gasp Jove I But that hills fierce he breathed explosively Do you mind resting a minut- eHardIYthe colonel was Just able to hold his voice steadyI have a Filipino bullet In my leg somewhere which the Xray has never been able to account for and Im not exactly a mountain goat Why of course Im a brute not to let you run upthe drive In tho ma chine Not a rat watching us tonight either but I wanted you to seo the place and you seem so fit You oughtnt to give away your secrets to me an outsider Youre no outsider I consider you the treasurer of the band laughed Tracy They had somehow come to an unexpressed but perfectly under stood footing of sympathy The colonel even let the younger man help him up the last stiff clamber of the path He forgot his first chill as of a witness approaching a tragedy there was a smile on his lips when tho two of them passed into the patio It lingered there as he stood in the flowerscented gloom It was there as Tracy stum bled to a half remembered pushbutton wondering aloud what had become of Cary and Klto that they shouldnt have answered his whistle It was there still when Tracy slipped and grum bled What sticky stuff has Klto spilled on this ftoorand Instantly flooded the court with light Then he saw tho black slimy pool and the long slide of Tracys nailed sole In it and just to one side almost pressing against his own foot he saw a man in a gray suit huddled Into the shape of a crooked U with his arms limp at his side and his head of Irongray fallen back askew The light shone on the broad dome of the forehead He had been stabbed between the shoulders In the back and one side lit the gray coat was ugly to see Good Godl whispered Tracy growing white Its Keatcham theyve kills him Oh why didnt I como back before I CHAPTER XIII Whose Feet Were Shod with Silence Get outyoUr revolver ordered the colonel look sharp there may be some one h re- But there WM not a sign of life revealed by the search Meanwhile Winter was examining the body His first thought was that Keatcham had tried to escape and had been struck l down in his flight Imo would not Barred and Locked Like All the Entrances I scruple at such a deed nor for that mrttter Mercer But why leave tho man thus Why not dispose of the bodyunless indeed the assassins had been Interrupted Anyhow what a horrible mess this murder would make of the affair and how was he to keep the women out of It All at once in the examination which ho had been making whllo a dozen gruesome possibilities tumbled over one another in his mind he stopped he put bus ear to the mans heart Isnt he dead asked Tracy under his breathNo Is not dead but Im afraid hell never find It out returned the colonel shrugging his shoulders However any brandy handy And get me some water- I know where there Is some brandy Ill get It there is some water In tho fountain right Cary Whats the matter demanded Cary Mercer In one of the arcade doorways of tho patio Whats happened The devil Who did this He strode up to the kneeling soldier You are in a position to know much better than I said the colonel dryly Wo came this moment wo found this Cary did you do Ittho young man laid his hand on Carys shoulder his face was ashy but his voice rang full and clear If you did I am sure you had a reason but I want to know were partners in this thing to the finishThank you boy said Cary gen tly thats good to hear But I didnt hurt him Endy Why should 11 Wod got what we wanted Who did asked the colonel- I didnt and Klto didnt Ho went away to seo his only brother who Is sick He hasnt got back I dont know who did it but whoever stabbed him must have done It without warn ing him for I didnt hear a sound I was In the library Hes breathing a little I think murmured the young man who was sopping the gray mask ot a taco while Winter trickled brandy drop by drop into the sagging mouth andlook I somebody has tried to rob him thats a money belt The waistcoat was open and Winter could see beneath a money belt with buttoned pockets which had been torn apart with such haste that one of the buttons had been wrenched off They seem to have been after money said ho see the belt is full of bills theres only one pocket emptyPerhaps he was Interrupted ex plalned Mercer Push the brandy colonel hes moving his eyelids suh Weve got to do something to that hole in him first said the colonel Is there any doctor I darent send for one Tony Arnold might know one we could trust BUggosted Tracy I can get him over the long distance We want somebody now this min ute declared the colonel Theres Janet smith said Mercer my sisterinlaw shes Mrs Winters companion sho used to be a trained nurse and a mighty good one she could bo trusted Could she And how tho terms of his distrust had changed Ho had fought against an answer In the af firmatlve this morning now his heart was begging for It he was cold with tear lest she wasnt this conspirators confederateSend them both said he with no sign of emotion Ill call up Aunt Rebecca said Mercer Isnt he No Best not move him till wlget the wound dressed dont you reckon colonel But the colonel was already making a rough tourniquet out of his handker chief and a pencil to stanch tho bleed Ing The others obeyed his curt dl rections and It was not until tho still unconscious man was disposed In a more comfortable posture on the cush ions which Tracy brought that Win tor sent the latter to the telephone and then ho addressed Mercer He took a sealed package from an inner pocket and tendered It saying You know who sent It Whatever happens youro a southern gentleman and I look to you to see that shethey are kept out of this nasty mess abso lutely

standing a little way off It was to be observed that he had not touched Keatcham nor oven approached him close enough to reach him by an outstretched hand Winter studied his face his attitude and suppressed the slightest of starts Mercer had turned his arm to light another electric bulb and the action revealed some crimson spots on his cuff and a smear on his light trousers above the knee The lamp was rather high and he was obliged to raise his arm thus lifting the skirts of his coat which had previously hidden the stain Ho did not seem aware that his action had made any dlsclormro He was

most renowned and In fluential cities In the history of the world Suggestion and Practical Thought 1 Athens in St Pauls day Driven from Berea as we learned in our last lesion Paul came to Athens in Greece As he walked from the Piraeus where he landed along the new road to the city he saw raised at Intervals altars to the unknown gods As the city of Athens came Into his view his soul must have been filled with the deepest emotions He had seen Jerusalem the most Influential city In the world for religion belonged to go to Rome which stood above all others in power in law in imperial sway the capital of the world but now he was to gaze upon the city which then stood and still stands enthroned above all others for Intellectual supremacy for literature art architecture and philosophy 2 Paul Begins his Work in Athens Vs 1621 While Paul waited for Silas and Timothy to come from Be rea before proceeding farther or be ginning special work in a new and peculiar field his spirit was stirred In him urged on as with a sharp goad to give the Gospel to a city wholly given to Idolatry His work was with four classes of persons The Jews devout persons epicurean philos ophers and stoics These met Paul in debate 3 Pauls Address Before the Uni versity of Athens Vs 2231 The Athenians were proud of their city and could be called by no higher title A Wisely Chosen Text 23 As I passed by along the streets and avenues of the city and beheld your devotions not acts of worship but objects of worship idols altars temples I found an altar with this in scription to the unknown god or an unknown god 1 God the Creator of Heaven and Earth 24 Not an Idol to be seen and handled not a being in human shape not shut up to dwell in temples made with hands 2 His worship therefore must be spiritual 25 Neither is worshiped with mens hands presenting to idols costly offerings and food and drink God wants not help but love 3 One God and All Men Brethren 36 Made of one blood all races kinds and degrees are from God and therefore are brethren 4 His Desire Is That All Should Find Him 27 If haply they might feel after him and find him 5 For We Are His Children 28 For in him we live and move and have our being This is true both of our natural and of our spiritual life 6 Therefore God Is a Spirit 29 Therefore we ought not to think that the Godhead Is like unto gold etc The human soul with its vast powers must have an author and father great er than itself of the nature of spir it but infinitely greater than our spir its 7 If God Is Our Father We Should Be Children Worthy of Him 30 The times of this Ignorance God winked at overlooked did not punish with the severity that falls upon willful sin against light and knowledge But now Since Christ has come with new light new motives a new message from God Commandeth all men everywhere to repent To turn from their sins and live as children of a holy God should live 8 New Motives 31 1 God will judge the world in righteousness Every decision will be right correct loving God will judge men according to character and life the test being whether they have done right or wrong not their wealth or position or rank or genius 2 The great motives were embodied in Jesus Christ whom he bath ordained to be the Saviour of men the test of obedience the way and the truth and the life 3 Hath given assurance that he Jesus is the judge the Saviour the overliving King In that he hath raised him from the dead It is probable that Pauls address was cut short here before he had fin ished what he wished to say 4 The Effects Produced by Pauls Address Vs 3234 1 32 Some mocked The teaching seemed ab surd to them 2 Some refused to decide We will hear thee again Like Felix they would wait for a more convenient season They could endure almost any strange theories but when it came to giving up their sins and to a change of life they rebelled 3 A few accepted the truth re pouted and became disciples of Jesus 14 DIonyslus the Areopaglte that Is a member of the learned council before whom Paul bad preached DamarisThe resurrection of Jesus proved that he was the Son of God and was living though unseen that there Is life beyond the grave Thus the duty to repent was en forced by new motives of tear of love of hope by now light on conduct on the judgment on God on Heaven on the future by new helps ana opportunities through Christs love and teachings and atonement and exam pie and tho Holy Spirit by new proofs through the resurrection of Christ und the assurance it gave that he was the son of God and that there is Immortal life 1885 Berea College

merest chance I was struck at once by his dreamy remote air I learned that he was a musician a violinist who had studied under excellent masters had come to Chicago to getsome compos lions published had failed and was stranded here without a cent of money Of course he didnt blurt this all out as I am doing Exactly said the others Well I went home and couldnt get that poor man out of my head lie had given me his address so I sent for him to lunch with me and discuss matters of business He came and plays for me divinely I I knew he was Indeed an artist the moment he drew his bow across the strings of that violin But you have heard him yourselves Then I catechized him The upshot of the matter was that persuaded him after numerous Interviews long arguments an Incalculable expenditure of diplomacy and a patience not native to my soul to let me Introduce him to some of the vaudeville managers In town Base woman Corruplerot genius were the protests Well you may Imagine the trouble I had to get even a hearing for those unfortunate vaudeville managers with my artist of the temperament lie doubted if he would not be debaslni his calling to so much as consider the project And all the time there he was starving That by the way was why you got up that subscription wasnt it Mrs Bond interrupted a young man at her right Yesi admitted she I simply couldnt see him perish with that genius of his And I know he must get hungry between my lunches and teas He didnt mind the subscription at all How did he come out with the au tocrats of the drama Inquired her hostBeautifully They listened hopeful ly Oh such trouble as I had getting those appointments But you know It takes time to arrange these little matters In the midst of the negotiations just when everything looked rosiest my friend of the temperament disappeared Simply dropped out of sight leaving no word of explanation foi me What had happened T- In ten days he returnedwith a wife I If you will believe me that In sane youth had gone and married a little country girl as inexperienced and helpless and altogether impossible as himself on his prospects Then I had them both on my hands I couldnt let them die in the street And there was something awfully appealing about Arthur Lorlngston His wife was a sweet little thing too though I had hard work to forgive her for ruining his career by marrying him just at that time So I set valiantly to work once more Arthur had decided that he must study in Paris He really seemed to have an idea about It I agreed with him meekly that vaudeville was but a poor excuse for art and hardly worth a mans best efforts Then after weeks of scheming and planning and wire pulling I was ready for my coup detat What those weeks cost me in broken engagements weariness of the flesh and selfsacrifice no one knows Poor Mrs Bond murmured a listener Finally the day arrived which was to malta my artistic friends fortune to assure him of his chanco to study In omfort and dignity Six of the most mporlant people of musical sym lalbles in the city had consented to give an hour of their time to meet and hear him play I knew the victory was already won Well we met and we waited I knew they were fidgeting and as for- me I was shaking with fright Forty minutes we waited In a dreary pretense of sociability and finally we parted Arthur Loringston had broken that appointment I was sick with mortification but I was also alarmed My poor friend 1 thought What terrible accident has prevented his coming The next day I met him on the street Elie came up to me coolly emil ng appealing as ever cheerful yet with his little air of dreaminess Dear Mrs Bond he said I was sorry to disappoint you yesterday butt was unavoidable My wife had a lllle attack of homesickness so naturally I was compelled to deny myself the pleasure of meeting your friends And that said Mrs Bond Is why I have renounced the artistic temperament and all Its works PUT TWAIN AT TOP HUMORIST DECLARED LAZIEST MAN

WASHINGTON Continued from Pint rage from the louse Uncle Joe did not follow the rule of seniority in soles Inbthem as the Senate did and as is usual but dropped Mr Hill out Then In order to balance the rctorn Ing tendency of Mr McCall tho Speaker put In an extra man on the committee Mr Fordney of Michigan who is anything but a reformer along tariff lines being In fact tho recognized repreacnlallvo of the lumber business which wants high tariff on lumber and timber So while Mr Payne is chairman of the conference committee of the house he flnda himself with four high tariff men against him Fordne Dalzell Boutcll and Calderhead and only ono low tariff man to help hit McCall Under these circumstance It looks as If Speaker Cannon bad fixed things up with Senator Aldrich to secure ncqulscenco on the part or the House oonferrecs In most of the Senate tariff Increases President Taft came back to town on Friday afternoon to see the bill put through conference In proper tort The most important statement ns to his wishes which he has made Is that the corporation tax amendment will have to be wrltlen over again During the early part of the week it was altered by Senator Clapp BO that cox panics whose only purpose la to hold stock In other companies must pay n tax on their Income from such stocl which has already been taxed through eta own company Mr Taft will 1I0t stand this double taxation Auolhc matter In which he Is interested III the restoration of low duties on raw materials the low duties of the 1I0uso on leather wool ore etc havln been In most caces greatly raised by the Senate On behalf of the Senate on the other hand he wishes to seethe administrative features of tbe Senate bill adopted especially tho customs courtn court established to deal only with tariff cases which will take work off tho hands ot the Supreme Court It Is quite possible that Mr Taft corporation tax may have a hard right to keep its place in tho bill in con ference It was placed In the bill by the Senate merely for the sake or preventing tho passage ot an Income tax and now that all danger tons the income tax Is passed the Senate lead ers do not care it it Is amended out of existence At least It is probable that it will be cut in halt and mad a 1 per cent Instead of a 2 per cent tax The louse confcrrees are anx- Ious to have the Inheritance tax tako the place ot the corporation tax They passed an inheritance tax originally to give the extra rcvcnui which the corporation tax Is deslgnct to furnish and they say that Presl dent Taft was an original Inheritance tax man On the other hand the older members believe that Congress ought not to oppose an expressed wish of the newly elected President so soonNone of the house conferred como from the west northwest 01 south New England and the mlddl west seem to have the saddle Pros dent Taft will be freely consulted dur- Ing the conference The conference over the Dlngloy Bill In 1897 lasted eleven

courtiers remon strated with her I know I ought not to have done what I did she said I mean to be polite to my people but I cannot be polite to wrong harmonies Later she sent for the poor musician and

They Would Yellow Fever Evil Soon Be Blotted Out Physicians who deride tho efforts of clergymen and temeperanco wrok ere to stamp out the drink evil were scored by Dr George W Webster president of the Illinois state board ot health In an address on Alcohol and the Public Health given at tho convention of the Womans Christian Temperance union recently held at ChicagoDr Webster gave statistics to show that the alcohol problem la more important than the tuberculosis problem and that It costs moro Urea and moro money Ho says it is the cause directly and Indirectly of ten per cent of all the deaths In the United States and costs 2000000000 annually When the physicians said tho speaker take hold of the question In the same spirit as they have shown concerning yellow fever malaria and smallpox Instead of treating It as a moral question and leaving it to cloy gymen temperance workers and en thusiastic reformers we may expect better results And moro may be ac III compllshcdq by teaching the people rthe truth In regard to the fatal effects of alcohol upon mental and physical efficiency by telling them that It Is a poison and should be HO classified In stead of food or stimulant than by expatiating on the moral wickedness of drinking We deserve condemnation as a profession when we assume the atti tude of sneering contempt for the ef forts of clergymen laymen enthusi acts and reformers In their attempts to stamp out this evil just as we would deserve It If we assumed tho same attitude toward them It they attempted to stamp out yellow fever or malaria Public opinion demand and Gas a right to demand In no un certain tones that tho action and In fluence of alcohol be settled by the medical profession and that we then teach the people the truth fully con scientiously and fearlessly I believe that tho prevention of alcoholism which IB a preventable disease the prevention of Individual and national deterioration through its Injurious effects comes as much with in the sphere of action of tho med ical health omcer na tuberculosis or smallpox I believe that any disease which has a distinct bearing on In dividual efficiency and national prog ress comes clearly within the duty of the public health officer Dr Webster stated that 60 per cent of the municipal expenditures for the maintenance of police departments is for the arrest of the Intoxicated portion of the population to this can be added the cost of trial conviction and maintenance of convicted pro eons In Jails and penitentiaries Of the Insane 20 per cent are estimated as owing their Insanity directly or Indirectly to alcohol The death rate from alcoholism Is as great as from tuberculosis In tho United States rated at 126000 annually GOOD DAYLIGHT SALOON LAW Nebraska

of a law providing that all saloons must close at eight oclock p m opening no earlier than seven oclock a m This law which Is known as the daylight saloon law Is stale wide In Its application Such a law certainly removes one of the worst features of the saloon evil Where men make beasts of themselves squandering their money and blasting their reputations is In the midnight carousals If men are compelled as they will be under this law to do their drinking before dark ness has obscured the path that loads toward home there will be an end to the drunken orgies that every com munlty Is more or

stood with white face clenched hands and gritted teeth while Lucllo throw herself at her fathers feet and weeplngly begged and implored him to mltlgato the harsh sentence But ho cast her rudely from him with a curse and turning to Lcssuro with murder In his eyes said You dogl You want my daugh toryou I Why I shot your father down In cold blood because he differed with me politically Do you think Ill do less for you for trying to rob mo of my daughter- So It was you who killed ray father returned Lessure in a voice beneath the quiet of which lay the tense fixedness of a stern unbending resolve Then Col Farrar I tell you that I will havo your daughter and I will avenge my father Aro you mIne till death Lucllot I If am yours till death said the girl as she went over and placed her arm proudly about his neck Very little was soon of Lcssuro In town after that and It was whis pered that ho was staying out on his farm and keeping out of tho Irate colonels way About two weeks after his unsuc

towns people who had little love for Farrar at best wero ready to believe anything Ills threat against his daughter was known and the bolder ones did not hesitate to whisper that he had put It into execution These hints took form by degrees and at last a witness camo forward who told of passing the colonels house situated on th6 edge of town late at night and of hearing low moans and pleadings- At last suspicion took such fierce root that the sheriff headed an In vcsllgallng party Col Jim was away and they had free run of lho prem lees The search led to a cave In the side of the hill onco used as a cellar but long slnco abandoned There they found torn pieces of a dress a bloody hatchet and somo tangled locks of black hair drenched with blood The dress and lho hair wero easily Identified as belonging to Lucile Far rar tho hatchet as tho property of tho colonel When charged with the crlmo his knees tottered and he nearly tainted Ho mado no direct denial but moanod and cried tike a child During tho trial that followed ho seemed stunned and oblivious to what was going on I will admit that tho courts of today would be loath to accept so Inadequate a corpus delicti but our blood was hot In those times and it seems to me we hanged more than we do now Service was had on Les sure and ho testified to the facts of the quarrel and the threat Upon this evidence and the prisoners failure to deny they found their verdict of guilty and fixed upon tho death penalty As tho day of execution approach ed Col Farrar continued in a state of almost total Insensibility But when tho sheriff came to read the death warrant ho roused and raising his hand to heaven said Before my maker I swear that I am guiltless of my childs death They led him to the scaffold and on tho way ho passed Melvin Lcssuro who was watching tho scene IJko a bird fascinated by a snake Col Far rar requested tho sheriff to Atop and n extending his bald to Lessure exclaimed Young man I havo wronged you and I have no wish to leave thIs earth with the ill will of any man I ask your forgiveness for standing between you and my poor child and for tho death of your father which I believed to be In the lino of duty toward my country- Lessure trembled violently but did not reply or raise his eyes Tho march to tho scaffold continued A deputy was forced to support the tot terlng form of Farrar while the sheriff adjusted the black cap Then the sheriff stepped back and all was in readiness for the fatal word when Lessuro sprang forward and cried in an agonized voice Stop I alone am gulltrJ aloneTho
