district in the same manner MERGER a OF TOBACCO FACTIONS PLAN FORMED AT OWENSBORO TO EFFECT A NEW ORGAN IZATION It is believed that peace will continue W reign in the Green River tobacco district A movement for the consolidation of allof the tobacco growers of the Green River district in a single organization under a constitution providing for home rule and home storage was begun at a leeting in Owerisboro of the Green River Tobacco Growers Association of the American Society of Equity and unless the plan fails it will be con sumatedat a genet massmeeting of tobacco growers to be held In Owens boro April 18 The proposed constitution for tho new organization resembles in some respects the plan of government In force In the Dark Tobacco Growers Protective Association while in other important respects it differs from that associationThe organization if formed will embrace five counties in kentucky the old Green River district and two in Indiana Spencer and Warrick The Kentucky counties are Davies Mc Lean Hancock Ohio and Breckln ridge The distinctive points of the proposed plan of government are County representation on a basis of amount of tobacco produced the handling and sale of tobacco by a district board of control subject to county referendum permanent head quarters in Owensbory illlmination of all questions except that of grow ing handling and marketing tobacco and independence of other organiza tions From present Indications it appears almost certain that the union of all the factions in the new organization will be effected The tobacco growers regardless of organic affiliation recog nize the futility of attempting to con trol the situation with two or three organizations Some 300 of them In DaViess county alone have heretofore not affiliated with any organization Many of the most prominent Amen can Society of Equity men are strong advocates of the new organization This was clearly apparent in the dis trict meeting Tho meeting was largely attended and much enthusiasm was manifested A number of the men who have In tho past favored pooling the tobacco with the Louisville Ware house Company spoke in favor of the new organization DOCKET OF

certain Senators and Repro sentatives boarded ands said they might be called on too by the night riders if was deemed necessary It is possible that this stranger was just indulging in idle talk and

be Jolly genial Capt Jos W Hed den Superintendent of Public Print lug It seems that Capt Hedden was appointed to this position in 1906 by Gov J C W Beckham for a term of four years under an act of the Legis lature creating the office In that law there Js a provision which allows the Board of Print Commissioners to remove the incum bent for cause which in political parlance means that whenever the Board means that whenever the fellow the Incumben has to skidoo Capt Heddens friends claim that the wording of the law is such that he can not be removed until his four years is up which will be in 1910 However this may be the rumor Is that the Board wants the place for another man and we fear our genial friend will have to walk Spanish to the victor belongs the spoils and alch REMEMBERED THE

AND THE SPLIT LOG DRAG ARE THE CONSTANT FRIENDS OF THE ROAD While A an road builders arc as they le tru g good oa- dlah Qj f the ly mAi plat t stan aving built ut lously when askeW to provide funds to rebuild the road that has been allowe to go to ruin It is important that farmers learn of the benefits to be derived from good earth roads that county boards be impressed with the need of a proper maintenance of the same and hat road builders and overseers learn how best to care for the roads in their charge The persistent and powerful enemies of earth roads are water and narrow tires and the Constant effort of the men in charge of the roads should be to guard against their des tructiveness and remedy all damage as quickly as possible The simple implements which have been found to be of the greatest assistance in this work are the plow the drag scraper the wheel scraper the road grader and 4he splitlog drag With a sandy soil and a subsoil of clay or clay and gravel deep plow Ing so as to raise and mix the clay with surface soil and sand will prove beneficial The combination forms a sandclay road at a trifling expense On the other hand if the road be entirely of sand a mistake will be made if it 4s plowed unless clay be added Such plowing would merely deepen the sand and at the same time break up the small amount of hard surface material which may have formed If the subsoil is clay and the surface scant in sand or gravel plowing should not be resorted to as it would result in a clay surface rather than one of sand or gravel A road foreman must know not only what to plow and what not to plow but bow and when to plow If the road is of the kind which according to the above in structions should be plowed over its whole width i he best method Is to run the first furrow in the middle of the road and work out to the sides thus forming a crown Results from such plowing are greatest In the spring or early summer In ditches a plow can be used to good advantage but should be fol lowed by a scraper or grader To make wide deep ditches nothing bet ter than the ordinary drag scraper has yet been devised For hauls un der 100 feet or in making fills it Is especially serviceable It Is a mis take however to attempt to handle long haul material with this scraper as the wheel scraper is better adapt ed to such work For hauls of material more than 800 feet a wagon should be used- MISSIONARY SHANTYBOAT Burleigh McNeill a young man of Smithville Ritchie county and son of a minister is planning to go to South America as a missionary among the sun worshippers and will make the

be tho same as is done by this organization In every city where it has an office It is in no way designed to prevent or interfere In the work of any other charity dispensers of the city but to fact as an active assistant and cooperate with them keeping closely in touch with the deservin poor of the city watching their needs lad eating where charity may be best dig rected and where it Is most desired and needed The work of the Associated Charities is to prevent overlapping of charity which is so often the case wherever there Is not some organized movement to take hold of the work and see just what is being done In other cities the city the county and many of the religious and fraternal bodies direct all of their charity work entirely through the agency of the Associated Charities Besides devoting much time to the discernment of the needs of the poor the aim of the organization Is to in duce the poor who are deserving of help to earn what Is given them as much as possible in many of the cities the Associated Charities estab- lIsh kindling yards where the needy and hungry are attended to and fed after they have cut a certain amount of kindling which is afterwards sold and the proceeds applied to the support of the organization The work of establishing the Asso elated Charities is necessarily somewhat expensive As is done else where It is expected that slight con tributions fo Its support will be made by the city council the fiscal court and the various organizations of the city interested in its work Plans are on foot for several benefits to make up a fund to assist In the Incep tion of the work Efforts will be made for a benefit at the moving picture shows and probabh at the skating rink Sustaining and annual member ship tickets will also be sold for the benefit of the work Several have already been subscribed for a RELIGIOUS CENSUS TO BE TAKEN IN CITY The satisfactory results of the reli gious census of the city taken two years ago under the

April 9th was selected as the date for the census which will be taken by a selected number of cen sus takers Each church is expected- to furnish its quota of enumerators who will report to Rev Dr M B Adams pastor of the First Baptist church who has been selected as chairman of the census He will be assisted In looking after details and arrangements by Rev C R Hudson of the Christian church who had charge of the work last year Cards have been printed which will be furnished to the enumerators who will start out early Thursday morning on their task The city will be divided up into districts and a house to house canvass be made the name and cell gious affiliation of every one being not ed on the cards under the proper heading Tabulations will be made at the conclusion of the work showing the strength of each denomination and the religious inclinations of those who are not members of the church CHILDS SINGULAR IDEAS A twoyearold child was taken out riding in a buggy by a friend It eo

it the with which both sides confidenceI the issue of the conflict accord with their wishes i The people of the South especially those of an age to serve In the army affected to believe and many of them Southernerrcould whip five Yankees On the i1other hand while the faith of the Yankee In his Individual prowes and Invincibility was not so arrogant he thatponeYankeegood account of himself In a fightI with one Southerner He also and as the result showed with rea sonupon the superior numbera the North could put Into the field and the ioverwhelmingly superior resources the national government and its abil I ity to furnish all the means necessary to successful prosecute war He cherished another belief not so rl 1 well founded viz that the Southern t man although a daring and dashing fighter lacked endurance and would protractedtolls and privations It was abund antly proven that this idea was a mis taken one as much so as the whim tsicalSouthern notion that the North ampt1l pluck stamina and combativeness a 7were qualities common to both This fact very important to be considered then but unfortunately not 1r sooner realized and never It is to be hoped to be forgotten was first dis i covered at the battle of Shiloh and the d military operations immediately prop f i ceeding It but was incontestably es tablished by rthe tremendous efforts subsequently made and the fearful decimation suffered by the combatants In both hosts In many an arduous campaign and on Innumerable stricken fields ghastly with carnage The nativeborn Americans of the respective armies were so nearly akin in blood descended as they were from practically the same racial stocks littleIdifferencequallrles although immediate envi ronment and social training might produce an apparent dissimilarity In respect of aptitude for military service that Is to say when they first entered the ranks the youth of the Southern Western and border States were unquestionably superior to those from the Northeastern States They were more habituated to an active outrofdoor life and more Inured therefore to the exposure and physi cal exertion which military service demands than were those who had pursued more sedentary occupations They were nearly all of them expert horsemen and marksmen and accustomed tb hunt and live In the woods were already Initiated In the life of the camp There were few cities of any con siderable size then in the South and the town boy and the country lad led very much the same kind of life and were equally prepared for the life of the army There was another rea son why the young fellows reared In the South and In many parts of the West accepted more readily the con ditions of warfare that may sound strangely to modern ears yet will be recognized by those who remember the period Tho use of deadly weap ons in personal conflict was more fre quent In the South and West than In other parts of the country and the inhabitants of those sections were accustomed as the Irishman puts it to the Idea of the ben kilt They had not therefore the same horror of death by violence which the novice In such matters feels and which canIIbe corrected only by edu the Southern troops some of the young fellows from the cities seemed during the rst months of service to take more kindly to tho camp and campaigning than even the hn st of their rural brethren who Ii own only the life of the

required however 4o cause these minor differences to disappear and make the native born soldiers of both armies alike in all essential respects and when equairy well disciplined and commanded all fought with equal daring and tenac its Military writers will eventually agree I think that the American volunteer could be made a veteran In briefer time than such change could be wrought in men of any oth er nationality and when he became a veteran no soldier was more apt and resourceful apter and less sus ceptible to panic Many declarations of the belief so fondly cherished of the invincibility of the Southerner and the incapacityI of the Northern man to in battle will be remembered and some good stories of how the South erner frankly expressed his subse quent disillusion In this respect have been told Everyone has heard of the explanation of such extravagant utterances made by the man who having been redhot for secession and ftght before the war kept discreetly In the rear after It commenced and became an unconditional supporter of every obnoxious measure to which the South was subjected during the reconstruction period He was making a speech at that date and some one in the crowd shouted the ques tion Didnt you say in 1860 on thisI very spot that we could whip the Yankees with popguns I did replied the unabashed demagogue and I think so still Bu- tdn em they wouldnt fight us that waySome two or three years previously to the beginning of actual hostili ties and while the whole country was convulsed with the agitation which Induced the conflict I heard this Idea of the Northern mans lack of cour age and combativeness very earnest ly denied and In a way which made a strong Impression on my mind It was at a political meeting held at Lexington Ky which was addressed by a number of distinguished gentlemen At that time men of all po litical parties with scarce an excep tion entertained strong proslavery sentiments The probability of armed conflict between the sections was freely discussed by the speakers who addressed this meeting and all announced that In such event they would take past with the South and their belief that the South would be victorious In the audience listen Ing intently to all that was said was the Hon Thomas Francis Marshall the most brilliant orator Kentucky has produced and one of the strongest intellects the country has known When those regularly on the program had concluded the crowd call ed vociferously for Marshall and he took the stand He gave little attention to the top- Ics which had been generally discussed by the speakers who hadj pre ceded him except to combat in brief terms certain contentions that he es temed peculiarly sophistical or ob noxious but addressed himself as if with prophetic instinct to what had been said concerning the sectional controversy and a poslble separation of the States He especially insisted that the opinion expressed by some of those who had spoken that there might be a peaceable dissolution of the Union was fallacious Such a thing he said as disunion without war was impossible the Idea was sheer lunacy He maintained that the people of the North and East would regard an effort to dissolve the Union and establish another and separ ate government on this continent as the declaration of a war which might be continued for generations that no matter what technical right the South might show to take such ac tion or whatever cause or complaint she might have those people would never consent to disunion and would oppose Its attempt with force More over the people of the Northwest would fight rather than allow the mouth of tho Mississippi to be con trolled by a government In which they had no share and those everywhere who wished a great and pow erful national government and the do velopmont and material prosperity of the country would resist national dls integration to the bitter end The foundations of this Union he said were laid In the blood of the sires of the revolution and if the structure should be destroyed Its frag ments would be drenched with the blood of their descendants An attempt to dissolve the Union meant Inevitable warfierce deso lating fewith conseque es per h e more terrible than blood hearers not to beI ng that in such a meet antagonists- m the deadliestr ored from the same Ibborn British I blood v c lice

mariners who vexed every sea with their fisheries who cast the net and drew the line on the coasts of Greenland and struck the sperm whale among the Isles of the Pacific You young fellows he said think the Yankee wont fight Well he doesnt always fight upon the same provocation and exactly In the same fashion that you do If a man calls a Southern boy a liar that man or that boy must die Give a Kentuck ian a mint julep and a pistol and he will fight the devil A Yankee does not often fight about a punctlllio nor does he fight duels but you get in between him and a cod fishery or you try to take away from him a bars rot of molasses and hell give you hell I thoroughly appreciate and justly value Southern courage and prowess Every drop of blood in my veins Is Southern I am proud of the record the South has won for valor But I prayalthough I am not among those whose prayers avail muchthat the people of the South shall never dis play that valiant spirit in conflict with those of kindred blood and the same resolute temper and which however It terminate will cause the world to shudder I thought of that speech very often while that conflict was in progress and realized the truth of its predictions BENNETT H YOUNG THESE GIRLS OF OURS DEARLY LOVE LORDSI Neither thundering newspaper edi torials nor divorces nor rumors ofI unhappiness in high places can keep the American girl from marrying a titled nobleman when she gets the chance Truly the feminine Tommy loves a lord Likewise It seems she is so delightfully sure of her own charms that she cannot believe that she Is being married for her money and this in spite of the fact that she cannot cite any case where a girl of Impoverished family born and raised in the States has been sought out by a nobleman of another country says the Baltimore News If an American man who wished to merry her demanded that a cer tain part of her fathers fortune be settled upon him her Indignation and disgust would be terrible to witness but when a foreigner demands a mil lion or two she regards It merely as a pleasing peculiarity on his part due to his different environment and also as an evidence of business perspica city and seems to feel no mortification that she Is not a sufficient for- tuna for her lover without a lot of vulgar money being thrown in to make the bargain equal As a matter of fact the mistake which has been made heretofore such cases has been in trying to kee the American girl from ruining her fate by going out of her own country to find a mate What the average young feminine citizen of these Unit ed States cannot stand Is being told that she must not do anything no matter whether It be eating an over plus of candy or marrying a count whose title may amount to less than nothing The moment the way she should not go Is pointed out to her that instant she treads it ly daring anyone to keep her fro doing it The thing that millionaire papas who have daughters to settle in life should do then is to urge them to go abroad and buy a husband They should put It up to them as at once a matter of filial duty and a fine stroke of diplomacy The young woman thus urged to make a sacrifice of herself for the aggrandizement of her family will In stantly refuse to do It She will rage at her unfeeling father for asking It of her and If she is pressed she will run away and marry the stalwart young American who Is nearest at hand and who will doubtless make her a better and less expensive husband than the foreigner Thus by diplomacy an end might be attained which no amount of scolding has yet seemed to effect Matter of Economy Jack at the operaMrs DuPyster la dressed rather economically tonight isnt she TomHow so Jack Not much waist material Reliable A Garden Seeds- We are handling this season as we
