Fourth Page Somewhere in this great country just the kind of weather YOU like is being cussed by some grouchy chap who does notso cheer upEx FIGHTING THE WHITE PLAGUE A bill is now before the legislature of this state to provide for tho establishment of a sanatorium for tho treatment tuberculosis or consumption and for the instruction of ignorant people in means of preventing that dreadful decease In spite of the admitted import anco of tho measure there is fear that it will not pass If everyone could he made really to understand the importance of iliis law and the good it would do not only to the suffering consump tires but to the whole state there would such a cry rise up that the legislature would bow down before it at once and the selfish interests of rt few persons would not be allowed to stand in the way for I moment But because tho danger and the good to be done cannot be measured with a and because many do not really under stand how much can be accomplished by care the people are silent and the law in being loft for the politicans to deal over Consumption can bo entirely prevented and it can be cured in tho earlier stages It is contagious and passes from one human be ing to another It is probably also carried in milkand it certainly is carried in food prepared by consumptive people It costs every year nearly seven thousand deaths in this one state alone The death of a citizen who has been educated at state expense and has reached a point where he is self supporting not only deprives the state of the taxes he would pay but rnitkes the community poorer by the amount of work he would have dono For no mans work is of benefit to him self alonebut all are helped and enriched by an industrious man And while many die a great many aro simply sick and remain a charge on their friends and the community So that the burden on the people of this state from this disease in past all counting in just the matter of dollars and cents And of course no one can measure the heart ache and misery of those who have stood around beds whore death would not have come if this law had already been passed To many of us it seems as if the benefits of this law would be only for others but the man who does not know that what in of bone fit to the community is also of benefit to him is neither patriotic nor wiso The wise and patriotic should use what strength they have with the nearest legislator to induce him to work for this needed re form for our state HOW TAYLOR PLAYS THE PIANO Ottawa Kan Republic Doc 6 07 Have you heard Mr Taylor play tho piano It Is a well

StandPattersThey Try To Him Down and Succeed in Getting Him to Reduce His DemandsWork DraggingOther News of Capital Washington D C Feb 19 1910 How much longer will Taft stand for IU Is the question which Is be ginning to be asked around the Na tional Capitol this week by people who are watching the course of political events The answer Is not given but the Idea seems to bo gen eral that the beginning of the end is at hand Just what will happen Is beyond tho knowledge of anyone for things have not happened accord ing to computation this winter and are not likely to But It In plain that Pro Taft Is getting peevish Ho has had a lok of very pleasing promises from the Aldrich and Cannon crowd but so far ho has had absolutely nothing but promises and ho Is beginning to feel hungry for a atronger diet They on the other hand do not seem in any hurry to give him anything real It Is believed that he Is beginning to look longingly toward the corner where Roosevelts big stick has been standing in disuse for a year And hero is a little prediction I believe that If ho once reaches for that stick he will make the fur fly in a way I that will surprise every one and especially the owners of said fur Also when that happens his waning popularity will como back with a ban and people will once more be strong for him That his popularity la really wan ing was shown by another of the polls ot the Chicago Tribune such as was reported last week This poll was on the desire of tho Republican editors fgr tho Republican nominee for president In 1912 and resulted in a heavy majority for Roosevelt with Taft a poor second So there Is a big chance for him to win friends if ho dces the thing And It looks like he might just do that Mr Taft has spent this week trying to get the Congressional loaders to do some of tho things they havo promised And all ho got has been moro promises from the same men Meanwhile the bills ho Is Interest oIl In are about whore they have been for a month The Congressmen are adroitly managing so that something Is always in tho way when it comes to work on the Taft bills and while It would bo possible to put them thru In short order If tho

proving him to bo a Russian spy Hardy for Rus sia on a steamer which was wrecked shortly afterward Ho was rescued by a Russian steamer On reaching Vladi vostok he was well treated Ha started for Blberia meeting Princess Romanovna on the train Hardy boarded a vessel for Amur Hardy showed the princess his expertness as a rifle shot The steamer was stranded The princess and her maid were attacked by Chinese Hardy saved their lives The thanked Hardy for his heroism Manchurians fired upon the craft Hardy slew theirI chief Burning arrows were hurled upon the Pushkins decks An attempt was Dade to board the vessel The attacking Chines repulsed Romanoff sneered princessItankaBalled to a cross on the shore To put an end to the awful torture Hardy himself put Stanka out of his misery taking hisIwn life In his hands I CHArEXIX A Perilous Mission During all this time the forest fires wore Increasing in Intensity and I spreading with great rapidity Vividly red and narrow lanes of flame ran zigzag to the waters edge lUte streams of fire Monster designs wore worked out on the hillsides in fire notably an immense heart and In places where the vegetation was I sparse the slopes were spotted with tiny Jets of flame By midafternoon the heat on the Pushkln was almost intolerable and I the discomfort caused to the eyes from the smarting smoke was great yet there was no longer any fear that thoso on board would suffocate or perish from the intensity of the heat Matters were undoubtedly at their worst and it was possible to live to breathe Out there in the middle of tho river there was no danger of the boat Itself catching fire and the wind which was coming straight down the ntream brought coolness and life with it from the wide Siberian plains As Hardy stood watching the scene that night tho princess came up to him and Bald We have nothing to fear from the Chinese I fancy They must have gone away They must think we are deadIt Is most probable replied Hardy but I fear that It will be some time t before wo shall be able to take to the roadAtI the military station below teleIIt Is possible for a boat of shallow draft to get down the river to a little distance back The general asked the men If one of their number would not volunteer to carry a dispatch to the station but I am ashamed to say that no ono has responded They are de terred by the dreadful fate of poor i StenkaI go cried Hardy Ask the general to let me go I can keep to the middle of the stream till I have I passed the fires either wading or Rwlmmlng down the swift current The fires cannot extend more than a mile or BO down the river a distance soon passed over and then I will take to the highway I am a foreigner andI If captured shall not be In so great dlfII get through The princess left him without a word but returned ten minutes later milling sadly and stinking her head It is as I thought she said The j general refuses He says it would be an eternal disgrace to the Russian arms if a foreigner should undertake this thing He Is making one more appeal to the men He is calling them sheep Japanese poltroons I had hoped said Hardy sadly that you people would no longer regard me quite in the light of a for eigner As far at least as the peo pie on the boat are concerned I have tried to earn the right to be counted one of you If I have done anything to merit your own regard personal I ask you as an especial favor to prepare this dispatch for me and let me be off I tell you again that I shall certainly go with or without It If you refuse I shall on the Instant jump Into the river and start on my JourneyI of you not to put It in that way replied the princess If you put it in that way you know I cannot refuse 1 hope the occasion may arise some day that will allow me In some way to show in u befitting manner my great and lasting gratitude to you Dut now you are taking an unfair advan tage You are seeking to place me under still greater obligations to you I ask for no gratitude replied Hardy I am simply seeking a favor an accommodation from you I am begging you to write a few lines for me Does your hlRunnss still refuse Weh then good by ana God be with you If wo do not meet again I pea you sometimes to think of mo as she who who goodby Ue laid one hud on the rail but hn she extended her arm and detained himStay she whispered I will write the dispatch for you She went to her cabin and Hardy made his few hurried preparations for departure which consisted simply in swallowing a few mouthfuls of za kouska In filling his flask with vodka and In slipping into his pocket a flat bottle empty but tightly corked When ha returned to the deck ho found the princess awaiting him with the dispatch ready Hardy wound It into a tight cylinder and poked it into the bottle which he corked and put Into hIs pocket Thank you he said simply to the princessShe her hand and he took It holding it but afraid to look into her eyes It was an honest hand that held his own in a strong warm pres sureI shall pray for your safety she murmured all the time till I see or hear from you again He raised the hand to his lips then climbed lightly over the rail and dropped Into the river The water reached nearly to his armpits at this place Ho did not look back but throwing himself on his face swam IRegarded with easy strokes the swift current sweeping him rapidly downward Soon his knees touched the soft sand and he was able to walk for some dis tance He had not gone far ere became on a and abandoned raft and be rolled a piece of timber from which be guided to the deep current He was glad to lie down again and float upon this bit of wood letting the water cover his body for he was coming to n narrow er part of the stream and the air was very hot CHAPTER XX Romanoffs Wooing- I tell you I can go I can get through Men have gone greater worse wounded than I It was Romanoff who was speaking He sat up and turned facing the gen eral as though ho would rise His wound had stiffened and the pain con sequent on the exertion caused to turn pale but he did not wince He was lying in the dining room on one of the upholstered cushions ex tended around three sides of It Tho current Is at least six miles an hour he Insisted and with some thing light to cling to I could float the entire distance The heat was stifling and the port holes were milky with smoke At this moment the princess en teredDont excite yourself Doris she said anxloiily or you will neutra lize all tbo good effects of my nursing think it ungrateful cf you not to He It and let me show what I can do Yes and leave you here to sUuro l or be burned up or perhaps be car vied off by the Manchurians when they return which they aro certain to do when the fire subsides There said the general you have your commands from an authority which you ought to If you do not heed mine I shall have another talk with the men I am sure they are ashamed of thomselves by this timeIt will be unnecessary for you to trouble yourself further about the mat ter said the princess blushing slightly and looking down a one has already tone Romanoff started violently and fixed his eyes on her Who was IU asked the The princess threw her head back and regarded him defiantly The American she replied Ten thousand devils I exclaimed Romanoff The meddlesome But I refused to let him go said the general It is a disgrace to the Russian name- I take all the responsibility said the Romanovna bravely Ho asked me as a favor to write the dispatch for him and I did so lie has placed me under certain obligations and I felt I could not refuse And I suppose sneered Romanoff that if he were to ask you for a kiss Him Defiantly The American She Replied stranded this somehow distances him that respect mansome general dog you would think it your duty to grant I oven that Your gratitude no doubt will be undying I You forget yourself sir cried Romanovna turning on him with flashing eyes You presume too much on your relationship One more such speech and I shall cancel your name from the list of my speaking acquaintances General I await your sentence I beg that you will not pass over my offense lightly Oh this Is all nonsense growled the general You know that I can not punish you would not if I could If one of the men had done this I should know what to do with him But no way has ever been devised for managing 1m unruly woman or pre I venting her having her way With thin ungraplous speech he turned and left the room The prin cess gazed after him sadly This then was her punishmentthe brave old generals displeasureand It was not easy to bear I choose to forget your extraordin ary remark Boris she said sitting down by her cousin 1 shall remem bet that you are wounded and that you must be suffering hero In this hot smoky air I sympathize with your irritation too and think it noble of you I would much rather that a Russian had goneand she laid her hand soothingly on his Why did you not encourage my going then he asked still sullen- I believe with the general that you are unable to go that the effort would almost certainly have resulted in your death And you dont want me to die I suppose You would be desolated by my departure for another sphere Now Boris dont be sarcastic Of course I should be desolated u you call it if anything happened to you Ellzabetha said Romanoff eagerly you know why I enduro It so 1U when others perform services for you You know that I would undertake any task that might win your regard your love that I would gladly face any danger In your behalf And now that this this Americanhas saved your life I could MK him for ill You did not want my life saved then she asked sweetly Oh you are enough to try the temper of an angel You know what I mean I did not want him to do It You are under no obligation to him for saving your life You know that there Is not a man In your circle of acquaintance who would not consider the greatest luck in the world to lit a chance to bravo danger for you and that such an opportunity should have come to this this Bo generous Doris If you wish to win my esteem interrupted the princess and dont bo unreasonable in your envy You have braved danger for me and are now wounded fighting In my behalf and I am nursing you Can you not imagine that there are those who would envy your present position You are not grateful even for the favors that you do receive Think of your wound which Is really quite serious Wolf then you be serious for once said Romanoff smiling In spite of himself and tell me that you love me Surely you cannot doubt my de votionDo you think It quite fair to bring that subject up borer she asked when yoji know that you have mo at a disadvantageBut find some excuse for not talking to me about It You always evade me In some way But 1 ercelyltoas only a Romanoff can love I shall not give up suing for your hand whllo I live and woe to tho man who crosses my path Ob if I could only fight Nothing Except Your for you would wade through seas of blood but would have you would you Romanovna shuddered but she came nearer loving him at that Instant than at any other moment of her life If you will not talk of these matters now you after we get to Moscow Perhaps she replied softly but tell us about Japan unless It Irritates your wound to talk Why there Isnt much to toll I passed myself off as an Englishman and sounded all classes of people I took note of the popular feeling of the strength of the national defenses and resources and made plans of the principal fortifications and sea approaches All the time I was thinking of you and wearing my heart out for another sight of your exclaimed the princess This meet absorbing about the toad of affairs there mean And lIs conclusion did you arrive at my ear owainf became positively convinced that the Japanese mean to make war on Russia that no diplomatic temporiz ing can postpone the struggle much longer Tho whole nation to a man to a woman to a child is united against us by the bonds of the most fanatic hatred Their population comprises no classes no disaffected races they are a unit In this matter The war will bo one to the death and they will fight until the last man is killed I concluded moreover that they are not a foo to bo despised They are a formidable sea power and they can throw largo and well equipped armies into Manchuria and Korea within a very few weeks after the first blow is struck I shall advise the Llttlo Father to begin pouring troops Into tile far cast to strengthen the defenses and garrison of Port Arthur Immediately shall ask to be sent to the front with the first troops that go Of course you will my bravo cousin cried the princess admiring ly and you will come back from the war covered with glory and I shall be proud of you But I can scarcely bellcvo that Japan Is so formidable an adversary as you say You will see replied Romanoff convictionWell begin tho warl said the princess rising her eyes flashing There can be only one outcome of It and that will result In the added prestige power of Holy Russia But tell mo more of your personal ad venturesWhy they are not particularly in teresting I passed off all right enough as an Englishman till this fellow Hardy came along Mr Hardy You mot him there You did not tell me nor has he No I surmise the fellow has good reason not to Soon after his ar rival I became convinced that the police wore on my trail So at tempted to throw suspicion on him I conducted him to tho fortifications sw t That Hardy Remained There In Japan with Her I I I have will Yes I I I and I and this and I of Yokohama and he In seeming inv nocence took photographs of them I also made a copy of my draft of the fortifications and slipped It Into his overcoat pocket We were arrested and after much palaver we wore sent on our way Thorn was a Japanese girl on the train by the way to whom he made lovo In the most open man nor They were as thick as two bill ing doves Ho was Infatuated with her said that her checks were tinged with moonlight that she was yellow because her mortal clay was mixed with golddust and that she waR n Queen of Fhlryland Ho must be something of a poet said the princess laughing nervously this Mr Hardy Now If you could talk to the women like that my dear cousin Were you not jealous of himJealous Jealous of his with a coolie girl Not I who know such women as you I Ellzabetha I But this Japanese elrlj This ia in u tensely exciting What hUll sho to do with the story Nothing except that your Hardy remained there In Japan with her and was sent homo as I supposed on a steamer from Hakodate I had notIbeen out long before I found that I had been betrayed and that I was to be locked up

Is Church of God a Beggar1 IIIBy REV ALEX W BEALER D D Adaety Ga =On account of tho lukewarmncss of those who profess to love God his church on earth is made to stand be Toro tho world In tho attitude of a beggarIf disinterested spectator from tho planet of Mars could drop down to visit us and could mingle freely among our people it would not bo more than a month before ho would como to tho conclusion that the Institution which Is called tho church of God was the great beggar of tho globe Ho could not reach any other conclusion It he was a man with a reasoning mind On tho Sabbath day ho would SilO preachers standing in their pulpits begging for money to keep the church from getting EO deep in debt that it could never moro be extricated And this plea would bo made to men and women who profess to love the church and who were willing to do anything in tho world for It if it did not cost them too much money too much time or too much pleasure a Ho would see men who belong to tho different churches going out beg ging money from the other members to bo used In paying the preachers so that they could manage to live And these men and women who had to be begged for money for this purpose pro fell to lore the preachers and to bo vitally Interested In their welfare And this visitor would see otherI men and women going out to beg mon teyto bo used in carrying on tho work t of the church money designated as mission money The people who belong to tho churches would profess to believe that God wanted them to carry on this work and yet they would hue to bo begged for tho money needed for this purpose And when tho summer time was ape preaching the visitor from the other planet would see the poorer classes starting up little places In which ice cream was dispensed at five cents a plate and a scanty plato at that And ho would bo told that this was char Actcristlc of thoso who had a very small capital and who wanted to make money without too much work And his surprise would grow when he would see great companies of women when tho building of the church they loved needed repairing opening up these Ico cream resorts on some pit vate lawn to dispense tho cooling stuff for money to bo used in tho work they had In view Tho members of these churches for get that they ought to glvo cheerfully to the support of the church which stands In the place of God and when they robo tho church they are robbing God Every member of the church should give to Its support both the rich and tho poor Ioverty is no more of an excuse for not giving than It is an excuse for not reading the 4 lllblo not attending church services nnd not praying It Is a part of mans worship and It should bo done for ho- I commands It and sInce money is needed to carry on the business of the world it Is needed In carrying on Gods business In tho world When a man who claims to bo redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ falls to give something ho is robbing God and cheating himself out of n blessing Suppose somo foreigner should como to any of our communities and should desire to Invest a large sum of money In real estate and tho real estate dealer who was negotiating with him should desire to provo to him that tho people were In a pros porous condition Do you suppose ho would carry him to the treasurer of any of tho churches and say to hIm Look nt these books our people give as the Lord has prospered them Tho stranger would roach the conclusion that tho country was In a poverty stricken condition rind that tho peo plo were on tho vorgo of starvation Tho Christian steward who lives un der this dispensation of tho grace of God may know that the seals of liberality in this enlightened and eled trlc ago Is not less than It was under tile old Mosaic dispensation when the people were enjoying but n shadow of tho blessings wo are receiving today Tho man who gives to tho support of the church to which he belongs In a scanty manner Is robbing not only tho church and making it appear as a beg gar lie Is also robbing tho God ho pro I leases to love If tho people who belong to tho churches would only wako up to theIr privileges they would glvo liberally rind thus provo God who has promised to bless thoso who are liberal givers to tho support of his cause Provo mo now ho says Give mo n tenth and see it I will not open tho windows of heaven and pour you out such a blessing that there shall not bo room enough to receive It Ha has always blessed the man who gives liberally Few of us daro to provo God I preached along this lino tho other day and at tho

soon after the Sermon on the Mount PLACECapernaum and vicinity Jesus home John the Daptlft In prison at Mathews castlr- Suggestion and Practical Thought This and the two following lessons teach us how Jesus went about do- Ing good and how his disciples are to follow in his footsteps First Tho Facts Immediately after the three chapters stating tho principles and laws of the Kingdom of Heaven there follow two chapters of miracles ten in nil together with two records of numbers of sick people made sound In health In this case hIs object seems to havo been 1 to show the authority of Jesus for the truths he had taught 2 to illustrate the truths by his own lifo and example 3 to show us how to follow his example- I The Healing of the Leper An Inv curable Vs 24 Mark 14045 Luke 51216 Leprosy Doth in Hebrew and Greek the word translated leprosy In the authorized version refers In every Instance except where It Is applied to garments or habitations to one or other of the various types of disease called in medieval and modern times leprosy Though leprosy Is rightly considered an almost Incurable disease yet It does though very rarely become completely cured If thou wilt thou canst make me clean An expression of faith In the divine power of Jesus and the very act of coming proved hIs faith in Christs goodness while as this was the first recorded case of the kind he may have feared lest Jesus should not be willing to help such a loathsome outcast as ho was 3 And Jesus put forth his hand and touched him to aid his faith to show his friendship in spite of his re pulslve disease and to teach him whence tho healing came I will be thou clean Then a marvelous change came over him The blessing was unspeakably great It transformed his body and his whole earthly life II The Case of a Sick Man of the PalsyVs 513 When Jesus was en tered into Capernaum there came unto him a centurion sick of the palsy Jesus consented to go to his house 10 He marveled for his great faith stood out clearly amid the prevailing unbelief Only twice do we read in the gospel that the Saviour marveled and at only two things Once nt the unbelief of his fellow citi zens at Nazareth Mark 66 once at tho faith of this heathen The cen turions faith was great It was found ed on facts that ho knew It overcame great obstacles It was unsel fish It was faith that worked It was faith In God and his son Jesus Jesus cured the man by his word III Curing a Fever In the Home of a Disciple Vs 14 15 This miracle belong to a Sabbath day In the spring of A D 28 about two months before the Sermon on the Mount In Caper naum Parallels Mark 12431 Luke 438 39 And when Jesus was come from tho synagogue where ho had been preaching and where during the services ho had cast a fierce unclean spirit out of a demoniac Ho went with four of his disciples Andrew Peter James and John to Peters house Ills wifes mother 15 Touched her hand To express his kindly sympathy and courtesy and to make it evident that the miraculous cure came from him Luke says he rebuked the fever commanded it to go as If it were an enemy The fever left her and she arose and ministered unto them showing the immediate completeness of tho cure IV A Snbbath Days Work of Jesus for tho Bringing Men Into the King domVs 16 17 Mark 12134 Luko 43111 This was the same day as tho healing of Peters motherinlaw When the oven was come as tho sun was setting Mark The multitude came after sunset Many that were possessed with devils With demons or evil spirits Ho laid his hands on them as ho did with Peters moth crlnlaw All this fulfilled the picture of the Messiah painted in the book of Isaiah chapter 53 Illustration Tho Wishing Gate In view of what Jesus did for the people In his day and his readiness to gIve whatever is best for us we can Im press the truth on our scholars by the parable of the Wishing Gate Among the English lakes above the beautiful waters of Rydalmere there Is a lovely spot called tho Wishing Gate As some traveler describes it An old gray wall fences in a road which runs beside tho slopes below shaded by varied trees and rich with wild flow ers In an opening In tho wall stands an aged and venerable gate much In scribed by

reports circulated the disease was contagious and Igltls have suggested that it was mysterious and very dread Dreadful It is and a very fatal IiI1lsease but It is now pretty well known and it certainly IS NOT CON TAGIOUS There has never been a case In the history of medicine when one case of the disease could be trac ed to another as can be done all the tlmo in typhoid and pneumonia Meningitis is an inflammation ot a part of the brain and it is caused i I by germs These germs may bo of I any kind that will cause Inflammation of which there are several The us ual one is called the dlplococus but there are also frequent cases of men ingitis from the germs which cause pneumonia grippe or ordinary bolls Most usually meningitis follows cases of grippe or Influenza Tho germs are carried from the nose and ears back thru the head thru the can nls called sinuses and thus got to the brain With a tew thousand cases of grippe there is likely to be a case of meningitis In the beginning the thousand cases woro all alike and all the thousand sufferers may have caught the grippe in the same way and been treated the same but for some reason or other one was less able to resist and the inflamma 4 tion reached tho brain But even when the thousandth case has developed into meningitis It would be 1m l osslblo for any one to catch any thing from the sufferer Meningitis Is not a disease by ItselfIt is a complication of some other disease You cannot catch It except by catch- Ing the other disease and you can not avoid It except as you keep well of all other germ diseases When there Is much grippe or pneumonia menin Is likely to come but the cases Jtarenever transferred from ono pert son to another If you are worried about this mat ter do not take the talk which is to be picked up on the streets about it but go to your doctor The man on the street is likely to know nothing at all about so dollcate a disease and there Is no use in being bothered by what ho says Ask your doctor even If ho charges you a little something for the information it will be worth while to have a quiet soul Record Flight for a Kite The worlds record flight of a kite is 28111 feet rove sea

Continued from Pint rage be somewhat encouraged by his weeks work for It Is announced that an agreement has been roochedI for the pascago of the as a partial fulfillment of campaign pledges Interstate Commerce Postal saving banks AntiInjunction and Statehood for Now Mexico and Arizona This announcement however is based on the promises of the same proImlswont for they are all lIon men rho law provides that title But some how their actions at the Capitol and their words at the White house dont seem to jibe very well Perhaps It Is not entirely tho fault of tho lenders however for it is a tact that tho leaders are not as strong with their old men as they once wore and of course they have tho insurgents In the fight tho there Is no insurg Ing on these bills But as I have said thatIthe rich men and corporations behind them and as soon as they try to go oft on their own hook those of the rich men who do not agree got busy and their support falls away So the Senate machine Is not working well Perhaps just perhaps the leaders really would not be able to keep their promise IF they wanted to As matters stand It looks to the outsider like a game of freezeout The Congressmen are making promises Failed in Health I My mother died six years ago writes Miss Ruth Ward of Jcrseyvillc III left me to care for six children 1 had never been strong and tins with the shock of her death

will have to bo done In order to assure a Republican house next fall and ho Is more than anxious to got tho bills to moving Each time an Issuo is made tho agreement la on terms a little more favorable to the Congress i lenders who do not want anything really done And so they seem to bo wearing him down They hope to got him to agree to laws which do not begin to do all they ought to but which will satisfy the trusts and which Taft will support and after wards defend rather than do without anything Maybe they will succeed but maybe they will got the big stick taken down As I have explained the real ads vantage of tho trusts In this fight Is that they will bo pretty well satisfied It they can keep any thing from being done They are able to steal a good deal pretty safely as tho laws are right now Of course It anyone should offer them more they wouldent refuse but they are not kicking No sir what they want Is to be left alone like the Irishman In his neighbors pigpen So If they can keep Congress tied down with other things they will be very happy And what Is more some of thorn and some that are talking the loudest about the good of tho party would be entirely willing to see a Democra tic Congress next year for that would mean surely no reforms would bo passed The Republican Senate would see to that So In spite of the danger toward which tho party Is drifting these men are willing to fight for delay and aU the President can do Is to got the best ho can out of them They are not afraid of losing tho electionthat wouldnt hurt them but they are afraid of losing their places of Influence In the party And that is about the only weapon Taft has to fight with We shall see what he does with It One little defeat tor the President has been given this week In the mat ter of publicity for the returns from corporations under tho new tax law Taft believes that the law provides that these returns shall be open to the public but there is no money ap propriated to pay tor the clerks who would have to have charge of them Mr Taft asked for money to enforce the law but Congress has paid absolutely no attention to his request There havo been rumors this week that the

Ho ad mitted that tho Guggenhelms were trying to get for 220000 land which contained coal that would pay 25 000000 profit Tills would glvo them a fair percent of profit Ho also ex plained that they expected to get it but they did not employ a lobby This last statement was needless Wit one Guggenheim in the Senate with Balllnger In the Cabinet and with such men as Schwartz in the Land Office a

prof Ellis calls particular attention to the vici ous t habit of poisoning dogs which seems to have become pretty common around here recently There may in some cases be an excuse for the use of this means of getting rid of trouble some animals but there is certainly no possible ono for placing poison In such a way as to kill a dog like Lassie It is against the law to put out poison of course and any one IGOTO iWJTatums FOR Fresh Groceries I buy all kinds of Produce North Cor Main St Berea Kentucky with a spark of decency will refrain because of tho danger of killing an animal worth a grat deal more than any damage that might be caused by the dog and because damages can now be recovered from the county under tho dog tax law And certainly no one with any humanity would In flict such a death as poison causes on any living being Such cruelty puts a human lower than the brute he tortues The killing of tho beautiful and harmless pet of the Ellis Is only the last Several valuable dogs

PAROLE LAW IS VOID ILLINOIS SUPREME COURT KNOCKS OUT STATUTE IN JOYCE CASE IT VIOLATES CONSTITUTION Decision Puts In Force Former Law and Will Not Effect Confined Pris oners Snell and Warner Will Gates Decided Springfield IIIThe supremo court Wednesday decided that the act creating the stato board of parole and giving tho stato board of pardons power to parole prisoners was uncon stitutional The caso decided was that of Joseph Joyce who was con victed of grand larceny in the Cook county criminal court at Chicago and was sentenced to an Indeterminate term In the penitentiary at Joliet or until he was paroled by tho state board of pardons Tho supreme court reverses tho judgment of the criminal court of Cook county holding that tho act cre ating the stato board of parole Is un constitutional because It violates see lion 16 article 4 of tho constitution which provides that an act making appropriations for the salaries of members of the genera assembly and state officers shall not include legisla lion on any other subject The act creating tho state board ot parole made an appropriation for their sal cries In violation of the constitution According to an official opinion of Attorney General Stead the decision of tho supremo court Is practically Inconsequential Tho court held that the Indetermin ate and parole law of 1899 Is Invalid but at the same time the court automatically brought to life the former law of 1897 and declared It in full force and operation The effect of this decision will not be felt by prisoners now In peniten tiary While truo they have been sen tenced under an Invalid act If they object they will bo remanded back to their trial court by tho supremo court with instructions to rcscntonce them under tho old law of 1897 The courts decision does not affect the state board of pardons except as to Its salary It remains Intact with practically tho same functions It possessed slnco Its organization The only change Is that under the law now In force It has only recommenda tory powers In parolo matters The court which tried the prisoner and the governor must first approve the boards recommendation before the prisoner can leave the prison The only persons affected by tho de cision are the prisoners who have been paroled and are now at liberty under the Invalid act of 1S99 What will becomo ot them what procedure will be followed and what their status Is the court refused to say After three trials In the Dowltt county circuit court and two hearings In the supreme court Richard Snell wins In tho contest to break the will of his father Col Thomas Snell the eccentric millionaire of Clinton The supreme court affirmed the judgment of the circuit court ot Do wilt county The lower court had held In favor of Richard Snell who had been disinherited The supremo court holds that Col Snell was Influenced against his son when bo made his will which was In favor of his grand niece Mrs Mabelle Snell McNamara of Kansas City On tho first trial tho jury disagreed and on the second trial it held that Snell was Insane when ho made the will Tho supremo court reversed this judgment and on the third trial the jury found that Col Snoll was of un sound mlno This opinion Is sustained by tho supremo court in affirming the judgment of the lower court It was held by the lower court that the trust created In the will of John Warner of Clinton In favor of his son Col Vespasian Warner was void be cause the will provided that tho trust continued 15 years after the will was admitted to probate It being asserted that tho will might never bo admitted to probate and that tho trust hcroforo would bo void because I might con tinue indefinitely by violation of the rules against perpetuation The su promo court held that the trust was not void but was valid for the period fixed by the will Springfield III Attorney General Stead gavo notice Friday that early next week bo will file with the su premo court a petition for a rehearing In the case of the people vs Joyce In which the parole law of 1899 was declared Invalid Pending disposition of this petition the courts decision is Inoperative The principal object of tho attorney

Practically Assured President Tafts Fondness for Travel Will Be Gratified Washington In the house commit too on lorolgn affairs thorn Is repos ing n nugo petition signed by hundreds of Americans known to fame and by thousands of other fellow Americans whoso fame never has been trumpet ed The petition asks that tho United States shall declaro Itsolf through congress that It wishes to give the world assurance It will never again conquer and hold by force of arms any more territory The petition also asks that the national lawmakers shall declare the Intention of this country to stop Its rapid Increase In armament Side by side In congress with this aIIetltlon la a bill to Increase the fight of the navy by the addl Mon of two great Dreadnoughts to the oceangoing war Sleet Thero are mem bers of tbo house and senate who aro in very truth apostles of peace but their number Is small when compared to the number of senators and representative who bollovo that It Is neces sary to maintain the navy and army at fighting strength and to do noth ing which might giro another coun try an opportunity readily to over come us in case of a declaration of warThe attempt of the peace promoters to secure from tho United States a first pledge to the end of friendly relations with the rest of tho world Is explained by the friends of tbo resolution which congress has been asked to pass as being simply ono step further on the road toward tho goal of tho political organization of tho world on a peace basis Seek to End Warfare The resolutions which aro now be tore congress have for their Immediate object the stopping of the growth of navies and armies When tho first Hague peace conference was held Its principal object was to see If some means could not bo taken to Induce tho nations of tbo world to stop In creasing tho enlisted strength of their armies and to stop adding battleships to their navies The attempt at Tho Hague flIed because It was perfectly apparent that each nation could not bo brought to believe that some other nation would not violate tho compact putthokept tbo peace faith In jeopardy President Taft and Secretary Knox havo just trdorscd a plan for tho es tablishment ot a judicial court to which all the nations of tho earth may have recourse in certain matters Tho friends of the peace movement see In this an added victory They say that this country is In a position at tho present moment to tako an advanced peace stand because no other nation on earth can dlsputo Its claim to sov ereignty where its flag floats In terJ I to go to war to save our belongings Thus established on a firm foundation at the present moment it Is the argue ment of the advocates of concord that tho United States Is well placed to urgo that no moro territory bo seized by any country and that all shall work together to the end that countries now free may continuo free and that peace mr y be lasting- It Is said by tho peace advocates that tbo establishment of tho Uni versal Postal union and of tho Interna tonal Agricultural Institute at Rome and of tho International Dureau of Weights and Measures Is a sign that tbo world Is moving forward toward a unity of purpose In legislation and that ono day there may bo such a thorough understanding and such a close bond of union that war will soon bo a thing of tho past Bureau of Mines Favored From Indications It Is practically as cured that before tho present session ends President Taft will sign u bill the effect of which will bo to estab lish a bureau of mines In the Interior department The duty of the bureau of mines simply will bo to mako thor ough Investigations Into tbo cause of mining disasters and to recommend preventive measures The bill It Is said will not Inter fere with tho rights of tho states In any way the hope being that the states will adopt legislation In accord anco with tho suggestion of the CedI eral government legislation which will prevent such terrible disasters as that of tho Cherry mlno in Illinois and otIthe recent mlno accidents In Colorado Kentucky and Pennsylvania In the geological survey there Is what is known as a technologic branch It Is tho duty of tho officials of this branch of the survey to make inquiries into mlno troubles and to make suggestions for relief Tho force is very small and tho belief of most members of congress Is that Its work should bo enlarged and should be put under tho control of tho secretary of tho Interior whoso department as far as public lands aro concerned has most of tho mining territory of the government In charge The American wining congress has representatives 1 In Washington whoso cffDrtu are to Thorohas ItIsargument based on the provisions ot tho bill Is that no right which now belongs to tho state will bo

long trip which ho took last summer and that ho likes to get next to the people and legllatlon subjectIllshas not In any way satisfied his travel hunger Ho Is going to swing around a smaller circle before congress ad journs and then he will mako a long trip during the summer On Lincolns birthday tho president spoke at a dinner of the Republican club In New York City Now York Is only live hours from Washington and this docs not count as much of a jour ney On Washingtons birthday the president will go to New York again to speak before the Society of the Cin cinnati lie will spend a large part of tho day following the dinner at tho homo of his brother Henry W Taft nighthoto the Newark N J board of trade Tho fact that President Taft likes to travel and to talk to people Is so well pilingInthey ever did on Theodore Roosevelt It was pretty generally known Just presldentand BO It was that comparatively few Invitations came to him to speak at minor functions With President Taft It Is different Ho Is asked to all kinds of things from sewing circle meetings to celebrations of tho natal days of great organizations that have made their mark on American history in Chicago St Patricks Day On St Patricks day March 17 Mr Taft will go to Chicago to address the Irish Fellowship club In Chicago and In some other largo cities of the coun try tho old time parade on St Pat ricks day has been given over and tho day Is celebrated largely by banquets and meetings at which appear noted speakers While Mr Taft Is In Chi cago as the guest of the Fellowship club bo will probably address a meet Ing called for tho purpose of fostering tho conservation movement Walter 1 Fisher vicepresident of tho great National Conservation association has his once In Chicago and at Mr Fish ers request tho president probably will speak Mr Taft barely will havo tlmo to get back to Washington before ho will bo called to New Haven to attend a meeting of the Ynlo Corporation of which bo Is a member This meeting will be held on March 21 and on the next day Mr Taft will journey to Now York to attend tho annual dinner of tho American Peace and Arbitration league ofIdent to attend a meeting on March 21 but bo has had to decline this Invita ion because of an appointment previ ously made to bo In New Haven Tho Bridgeport association probably will postpone Its meeting until later and the president has more than half promised that ho will put In an ap pearance and make a speech Gen U S Grants birthday comes on April 27 and on this date the Amor Icus club of Plttsburg always has a great celebration Tho president has been Invited to attend and ho has told Senator Oliver of Pennsylvania and tho members of tho Pennsylvania del egation which waited on him that he fully expects to be present at their banquet In recognition of the great soldiers birthday Cincinnati to See Him May 3 Cincinnati which is President Tafts homo town has complained tbnt he seems to bo willing to go everywhere else except there Thepresldent has said that tho homo ties are very strong but that he feels tho people of his own city in view of the fact of his many engagements clsewhe c will forgive him for not coming homo oftener Ho has assured several Cincinnati del cgatlonp that his heart Is just as true as It always has been to tho city on tho Ohio Tho president however will visit Cincinnati on May 3 and will deliver an address to his neighbors Indianapolis Louisville and Nash villa have asked tho president to pay them a visit and bo has agreed to do It before he starts for Alaska In tho summer It Is probable that when the president goes to Louisville and Nash ville ho will arrange to stop In Chat tniiooga and it Is probable that ho will visit tho battle field near that city GEORGE

says One of the most significant illustrations of this is af forded by the experience of Sweden In the recent strikes which threw 400000 men out ot work It is an old custom of workingmen addicted to the use of liquors to seek solace In the cup In times of extraordinary stress and trial In England Intemperance goes hand in hand with poverty and unemployment Out when the Swedish strike was in augurated the government took prompt steps fo cut off the drink evil by means ot prohibition enactment That this enforced abstention has had a remarkably salutary effect Is shown by statements published In vari ous Swedish papers and collected by tho Record of Christian Work a maga zine published under tho auspices of tho Moody schools In Northfield A Stockholm Journal states The provi sional law has had a wonderful effect Never before for generations past have Stockholmers been so temperate As a consequence there has been almost no crime fighting or other disturbfances That the great strike now t its fourth week should go on so quiet ly Is due essentially to prohibition As a result of the Improved conditions F a gathering of 25000 strikers made a unanimous declaration In favor ot total abstinence After picturing the bless ings of the cessation of drunkenness the declaration thus presented the Is sue Shall this attractive picture fade away Will Swedish people allow without protest the alcohol capital again t throw Its octopus arms around ten thousands of their fellow citizens Will they consent that thousands of Swedish men and womcs be sacrificed a on the altar of the Alcohol Moloch that Swedish working people be plunIdered In tho future as in the past ofC100000000 kroner yearly Evidence Is also presented to show that strong forces are at work in Ger many to reduce tho consumption ot a beer while extracts from French and Italian publications are presented to show the spirit of protest voiced from many sides against tho excessive use of wines and other intoxicating drinks Thero are many striking indications that a worldwide movement in behalf of temperance Is In progress and this i despite the liability of exaggeratingrthe permanent benefit of and radical changes as that enforced In Sweden Enforcement of tho liquor law during the big strike had Its cause and apparent justification in an extra ordinary emergency A time of popular stress had produced a situation quito abnormal The situation might be 0 likened to that which brought about a system of commission government in Galveston after the flood In either case it would probably be a mistake to infer that tho same degree of benefit could be sustained Indefinitely acterjthe passing of tho crisis which led to the adoption ot a heroic remedy ThotGermans in particular are not likely to be weaned from beer drinking by 1 any sweeping statutory enactment nor 1 Is it at all certain that such a radical change Is to be desired There is dan ger In Intemperance even when such a stato obtains in so salutary and useful i a thing as temperance reform We should feel profoundly grateful never theless for the main fact that tern peranco Is gaining ground throughout v the civilized world Milk Vs Strong Drink The movement to check tho use of intoxicants Is spreading everywhere Sometimes by restrictions upon Its sales and sometimes by providing substitutes One of the newest ex periments of the latter kind Is being tried now In Strasburg Germany The authorities thero have opened booths for tho silo of milk to working men and others with considerable suc cess A large glass of It costs about 2V4 cents ahd a small glass for half The patronage has become quite ex tensive and the quantity of strong drink consumed has been lessened whether this Is the best plan for the place or not wo cannot tell but no friend of temperance can be indiffer ent to any honest effort to promote the sobriety of communities Drink Question In Finland t tlandres rttheversity provide only nonIntoxicating
