JACKSON FOR LIFE William Sampson Must Spend tbe Remainder of His Life in Prison We the jury find the defendant guilty of murder and fix his punishment at confinement in the State pen- Itentiary for life These were the words that broke the silence In a crowded court room Tuesday and sealed the fate of Wil Ham Sampson the expectant and anxious prisoner who on last Christmas eve at n country dance shot to death old man Geo Cox The convicted man was perfectly calm and showed no signs ot excitement whet the jurys verdict was returned The crime for which Sampson must serve the remainder ofhis natural life in tin State prison is the most dastardly murder of an inoffensive old man The proof heard on the trial of thi case was to the effect that quite It number of young people including Sampson had assembled at the horn of Tom Kennedy a Bonlnlaw of Cox on Christmas eve and engaged in dancing Sampson as well as several others imbibed freely of red liquor and Sampson seems to have become intoxicated to such an extent that none of the ladies would dance with him This greatly angered him and he determined to break up the entertainment He demanded that the proceedings stop at once but the young folks disregarded him and continued their merriment Samp son left the room but returned in a few moments with a pistol and with an oath he said he was going to breakup the dance right now at the same time he drew the pistol and shot Cox through the neck killing him almost Instantly Sampson claimed that the gun was accidentally discharged and that he had no intention of hurt Ing anyone but the proof was over whelming and it is reported that ten of the jurors favored the death pen altyA stay or suspension of judgment has been granted pending a hearing of the case in the Court

ANARCHIST LAW Upheld by Supreme Court of The United States In an opinion by Chief Justice Fuller the United States Supreme Court has sustained the immigration authorities at New York in deporting the Englishman John Turner alleg ed to be an anarchist The Chief Justice in his opinion said that Turner did not himself deny that he is an anarchist The opinion upheld the law for the exclusion of anarchist and affirmed the decision of the Circuit Court tar the Southern District of New York which refused a writ of habeas corpus to TurnerThe Justice expressed the surprise of the Court that exception should be taken to the law on the ground that it is obnoxious to the Constitutional provision prohibiting the abridgement of freedom of speech the exercise of religious privileges c He said II It is of course true that if an alien is not permitted to enter this country or having entered contrary to law is expelled he is in fact cut off from worshipping or sqeaklng or publishing or petitioning in the country but that is merely because of his exclusion therefrom He is not one of the people to whom these things are secured and cannot be come such by an attempt forbidden by law To appeal to the Constitu tion is to concede that this is a land governed by that supreme law and as under it the power to exclude has been determined to exist those who are excluded cannot assert the rights in general obtaining in a land to which they do not belong as cltlzsns orotherwiseDiscussing the plea that the law should not be applicable to Turner because he was not an active anar chist Chief Justice Fuller said Even if Turner even thought he did not so state to the immigration board of inquiry only regarded the absence of government as Ii political ideal yet when he sought to attain it by advocating not simply for the benefit of working men who are justly enti tied to repel the charge of desiring the destruction of law and order but at any late as an anarchist the universal strike to which he referred and by discourses on what he called the legal murder of 1887 referring to the Spins case and by addressing massmeetings on that subject in association with Most we cannot say that the inference was unjustifiable either that he contemplated the ultimate realization of his ideal by the use of force or that his speeches were incitements to that end There was no dissenting

The consump tion and the manufacture of this drug far from being on the decline are on the increase to an almost incredible extent The greed for gold is far more predominant in the human makeup than is the philantropic spirit which seeks to elevate man kind though its purse may suffer in so doing England reaps more bene fit from the cultivation of opium than all other nations put together says the Scientific American- In the district of Bengal alone there are nearly one million acres devoted exclusively to the cultivation of the poppy Its cultivation is legal ized and in every way encouraged by the British Government which has an absolute monopoly of this industry in India The two principal districts are presided over by and under the direct control of English officials residing at Patna and Ghazlpur The Bahar agency embraces an opium field of about 500000 acres and that of Benores Is a close second with 473 500 acres There is a fierce dispute going onI just now as to the relative merits or demerits of opium Many eminent men in the scientific world openly declare that opium is a blessing The government experts in Ute country where it grows go so far as to say that opium is a blesssing Instead of a curse to the natives However the vast majority of mankind will long be of the undivided opinion that opium is the most allcrushing cur se that afflicts man The enthusi asts or rather the extremists of the International Opium Society picture the condition of India under the ban of opium in the most dreadful man ner possible According to one of these men all of the 600000000 hUe man beings In Asiaare exposed tothe evils of the opium trade as legalized by the British Government Pointed Paragraphs Egotists havent much to boast of It is easier to get a poor

me that 1 return quickly to those who sent me else Injury may come of it I like your speech my boy I like your speech cried Blackboard and he roared out a big laugh Urgently necessary you must do this you must do that It Is so long since I have heard such words that they conic to me like wine from a cool vault At this DIckory flushed hot but he shut his mouth You are a brave fellow cried Blackboard and above the common you are above the common There is that in your eye that could never be seen In the eye of a sugar planter you will make a good pirate Pirate cried DIckory losing all sense of prudence I would sooner be a wild beast In the forest than to be a pirateIBlackboard laughed loudly A good fellow a brave fellow he cried No man who has not the soul of a pirate within him could stand on his legs and speak those words to me Sail to Jamaica to carry messages to girls Never You shall stay with me you shall he a pirate You shall be the head of all the pirates when 1 give up the business and take to sugar planting Ha ha When I take to sugar planting and merrily make my own goon rum DIckory was dismayed But Capt Blackbeard IIP said with more deference than before I cannot Cannot shouted the pirate you lie you can Say not cannot to me you can do anything I tell you and do it you shall And now I am going to put you In your place and see that you hold It and fill It An If

Belize and who had given Blackbeard the Information which made him understand the charS acter of Capt Bonnet and how easy j it would be to take possession of his i person and his vessels and who had done everything in his power to enable the black hearted pirate to secure to himself Bonnets property and crews and who had only asked in re turn an actual command where before he had commanded In fact though not In name fled away from the false confederate to whom ho had Just given wealth and Increased prestige I And so you are to be my first lieutenant said Blacl beard his face re laxing I am glad of that There was nothing needed on this ship but a decent man I have put one on my old vessel and If there were another to be found in the Gulf of Honduras Id clap him on that goodly bark I Now sir down to your berth and don your naval finery Youre always to wear It youre not fit to wear the clothes of a real sailor and I have no landsmans toggery on this ship DIckory bowed he could not speak and went below When next he ap peared on deck he wore ex Capt Bonnets uniform and the tall plumed hattIt Is for Kates sweet sake he said t to himself as he mounted the compan lonway for her sake Id wear anything Id do anything if only I may see her again When the new first lieutenant showed himself upon the quarterdeck there was a general howl from the crew and peal after peal of derisive laughter rent the air Then Blackbeard stepped quietly for ward and ordered eight of the jeerers to be strung up and flogged I would like you all to remember said the master pirate that when I appoint an officer on this ship there is to be no sneering at him nor any want of respect and It strikes me that I shall not have to say anything more on the subject to this precious crew at any rate j The next day lively times began on board the two rich prizes which the pirate Blackbeard had lately taken There had been scarcely more hard work and excitement cursing and swearing when the rich freight had been taken from the merchantmen which had originally carried It Poor j Bonnets pen worked nard at lists and calculations for Blackbeard was a practical man and not disposed to i loose and liberal dealings with either his men or the tradefolk ashore CHAPTER XIX ONE NORTH ONT SOT TH F our dear Kate Bonnet had really Imagined in her inexperienced mind that it would be a matter of days and perhaps weeks to procure a vessel in which she with her uncle and good Dame Charter could sail forth to save her fa ther she was wonderfully mistaken Not a freefooted vessel of any class came into the harbor of Kingston Sloops and barks and ships in general arrived and departed but they were all bound by one contract or an other and were not free to sail away here and there for a short time or along time at the word of a maidens willMr Delaplaine was a rich man but he was a prudent one and he had not the money to waste In wild rewards even If there had been an opportunity for him to offer them Kate was die concerted disappointed and greatly cast down Day after day Kate waited for notice of a craft not only one which might bring DIckory back but one which might carry her away The optimism of Dame Charter would not now bear her up the load which had been put upon it was too big Everything about her was melancholy and depressed and Dickory lad not come back So many things had ltap = ened since he went away and so many days had passed and shu had entirely exhausted her plentiful stock of very good reasons why her son had not been able to return to her In the midst of all this uncertainty this anxiety this foreboding almost this despair there came a sunburst which lighted up the souls of these threw good puople which made their eyes sparkle and their hearts swell with thankfulness This happiness came in the shape of a letter from Martin Newcombe The letter was a long one and told many things The first part of It Kate read to herself and kept to herself for In burning words It assured her that he loved her and would always love her and that no misfortune of her own nor wrongdoings of others could prevent him from offering her afIIftlonto toj accept it now that it might belong her forever Happiness he said seemed opening before her he Im plored her to allow him to share that happiness with tier The rest of the letter was read must jubilantly aloud It told of news which had conic to Newcombe from Honduras gulf great news wonderful news which would make the heart sing Maj Bonnet was at Belize He had given up all con nection with piracy and was now en gaged In mercantile pursuits This was positively true for the person who had sent tho news to Bridgetown had seen Maj Bonnet and had talked to him and had been informed by him that he had given up his ship and was now an accountant and commission agent doing business at that place The sender of this great news also stated that Ben Greenway waa with Maj Bonnet working as his assistant and here Dame Charter sat open mouthed and her heart nearly stoppe- dbeatingyoung DIckory Charter had also been in the port and had gone away but was expected ere long to returnKate stood on her tiptoes and waved the letter over her head To Belize my dear uncle to Belize If we cannot get there any other way we must go in a boat with oars Wo must fly we must not wait The opportunities for figurative flying were not wanting There were no vessels In the port which might be engaged for an Indeterminate voyage but there was a goodly sloop about to sail In ballast for Belize Before sun set three passages were engaged upon this sloop It was a bright morning when with a fair wind upon her starboard bow the sloop Belinda bearing the jubilant three sailed southward on her couisn to the coast of Honduras and it was upon that same rnorning that the good ship Revenge bearing the pirate Blackboard and his handsomely uniformed lieutenant sailed northward the same fair wind upon her port bowI CHAPTER XX A PROJECTED MARRIAGE TRAANGhas It may ap pear DIckory Charter was not a very unhappy young fellow as he stood In his tunej uniform on the quarterdeck of the i venge the fresh breeze rutlllng brown curls when he lifted his hisI cocked hat True he was leaving behind him his friends Capt Bonnet and lien Greenway with whom the wayward Blackbeard would allow no word of leavetaking true he was going he knew not where and In the power of a man noted the new world over for his savage eccentricities and true he might soon be sailing hour by hour farther and farther away from the Island on which dwelt the angt Katethat angel Kate and his moth er But none of these considerations could keep down the glad feeling that he was going that he was moving Moreover in answer to one of his tnt passloned appeals to be set ashore at Jamaica Blackbeard had said to him that If he should get tired of him he did not see at that moment any rea son why he should not put him on- board some convenient vessel and have him landed at Kingston Dlckory did not believe very much In tho blackbearded pirate with his wild tricks and inhuman high spirits but Jamaica lay to the east and heI was going eastward Incited perhaps by the p08sesslonI of a tine ship manned by picked from his old vessel and from the mon who had formed the crew of the Revenge Blackbeard was in better spirits than was his wont and so far as his nature would allow he treated DIckory with fair good humor But no matter what happened his unre strained imagination never failed him Having taken the fancy to see Dick ory always In full uniform he allowed him to assume no other clothes he was always In naval fulldress and cocked hat and his duties were those of a private secretary The only shrewd thing I ever knew your Sir Nightcap to do he said was to tell me you could not read nor write He spoke so glibly that I believed him Had It not been so I should have sent you to the town to help with the shore end of my affairs and then you would have been there still and I should have had no admiral to write my log and straighten my accounts Sometimes in his quieter moods when there was no provocation to send pistol balls between two sailors quietly conversing or to perform some other demoniac trick Blackbeard would talk to Dlckory and ask all manner of questions some of which the young man answered while some he tried not to answer Thus It was that the pirate found out a great deal more about Dlckorys life hope and sorrows than the young fellow Imag ined that he made known He discov ered that DIckory was greatly Interested in Bonnets daughter and wished above all other things in this world to get to her and to be with her This was a little out of the com ImO run of things among the brotherhood It was their fashion to forget so far as they were able the family ties which already belonged to thorn and to make no plans for any future ties of that sort which they might be able to snake Such a thing amused the generally rampant Blackbeard but if this DIckory boy whom they had on board really did wish to marry some one the idea carno Into the JWIhimself It pleased him to have a linger In every pie Iud now here was a pie in tho lingering of which he might take a novol interest This renowned desperado this bloody cutthroat tide merciless pirate possessed u home u quiet little English homo on the Cornwall coast where the cheerful woods and holds stretched down almost III reach of the sullen sea Here dwelt his wife quiet Mistress Thatch and hero his brawny daughter Seldom a word came to this rural home from tho father burning and robbing sinking and slaying out upon the western teas But from the stores of roll which so often slipped so easily into lice great arms and which so often slipped just as easily out of them came now and then something to help the brawu grow upon his daughters bones aud to ease the la bors of his wife Eliza Thatch born no resemblance to a hour her hair was red her face was freckled she had enough teeth loft to do good eating with when she load a chance and her step shook the timbers of her little home Her father had heard from her a little while ago by a letter she had had conveyed to Belize His parental feelings notwithstanding he had told Bonnet he knew no such sentiments were stirred When he had finished her letter he would have been well pleased to burn a vessel and make a dozen passengers walk the plank as a memorial to his girl But this not being convenient it had come to him that he would marry the wench to the Bayly bedecked young fellow he had captured and it tilled his reckless heart with a wild delight Ho drew his cutlass and with a great oath he drove the heavy blade Into the top of the table and he swore by this marl that his grand plan should be carried out HP would sail over to England this would be a happy chance for his ves sel was unladen and ready for any adventure He would drop anchor in the quiet cove he know of he would go ashore by night he would be at home again To be at home again made him shout with profane laughter the little home he remembered would be so ridiculous to him now Ho would see again his poor little trem bling wifeshe must be gray by now and he was sure that she would tremble more than ever she did when she hearJ the great sea oaths whlcn he was accustomed to pour forth now i And his daughter she must he a strap ping wench by this time he was sure she could stand a slap on the back which would kill her mother I Yes there should be a wedding a fine wedding and good old rum shouil water the earth And he would dt tall a boats crew of jolly good fel lows from the Revenge to help make things uproarious This Charter boy I and Eliza should have a house of thief own with plenty of money he hallI more funds In hand than ever In hisI life before and his respectable son iti law should go to London and depositI his fortune in a batik It royal fun to think of him and Eliza highly respectable and with money the bank A quart of the best InI could scarcely have made more hilarious than did this notion He danced among his crew he singed beards he whacked with capstan bars he pushed men down hatchways he was In lordly spirits und his crew expected some great ad venture some startling piece of devil j tryOf I course he did not keep his great gloriIousyoung before him his dazzling future DIckory sat speechless almost breathless As he listened he could feel himself turn cold Had anyone else been talking to him in this strata he would have shouted with laughter but people did not laugh at Black beardWhen the pirate had said all and was gazing triumphantly at poor Dick ory the young man gasped a word In answer he could not accept this awful fate without as much as a wave of the hand in protest But sir said he If Blackboards face grew black he bent his head and lowered upon the pale Dickory then with a tremendous blow he brought down his fist upon the table If Eliza will not have you he roared If that girl will not take you when I offer you to her if she or her mother as much as winks an eyelash- In disobedience of my commands I vlll take them by the hair of their heads and I will throw them Into the sea If she will not have you he repeated roaring as if he were shout- Ing through a speaking trumpet in a youngstOr1Ito make a jolly wedding should be poured on the timbers to make them blaze Let no notions like that enter I your mind my boy If she disobeys me I will cook her and you shall eat her Disobey mo And he swore at such a rate that ho panted for fresh air and mounted to

tempera tures without killiug or own injur ing them Eggs larvae the pupa the stages in which most insects pass the winter are perfectly im mune to cold It is a common idea that cocoons of insects serve as a protection against cold but this is entirely er roneous rhev like the summei Webs of wcbworms are a protection against birds and insect parasites but not against cold The cocoons of summer broods are us stout and thick as those of the generations that pass the winter Moths but terflies and other insects build stout er and more compact cocoons in tropical and torrid countries than they do in those climates where they are besieged by winter There are many insects allied to the builders of cocoons that make no such cov ering the pupa or the chrysalis be ing left entirely exposed And so little heat is maintained by the pupa of insects that no matter how thick the cocoons they are always too slight to repel freezing cold Certain degrees of frigidity seem to have vastly different

of Oct 29 1861 Col McHenry with Cos A and D crossed Green River and marched to a hUhon the Morgantown road Having been informed that a rebel scouting party advanced to that point every morning the Colonel disposed his squadron for battle We had not been long imposition when the rebels appeared Seeing us they charged forthwith galloping pellmell and giving lull vent lo thtir peculiar war cry then unfamiliar to us Undis mayed we steadfastly held our grounds refusing to evcuate the hill when the charging rebels delivered i their fire Waiting until they had come within close mange we fired a deadly volley that emptied a number of sad dles Retreating hastily the enemy left arms and equipments strewn along the road which was profusely sprink led with blood We followed them to Morgantown and were told by citl zens that the retreat was a wild dis orderly riot We lost one man killed Granrllle C Allen Addressing the Federal Historical Society at Louisville February 1862 Col McHenry said On the 28th of of October 1861 I crossed Green river with two companies of my regiment expecting to attack a cavalry outpost stationed at Woodbury We encountered scouting party near Morgantown and exchanged shots with them One of our party Granville Crawford Allen was killed outright This was the first clash of arms and Allen was the first Union soldier killed on Kentucky soilGen Garfield defeated Humphrey Marshal in the mountains of eastern Kentucky January 10 1862 and Gen Thomas fought a brilliantary victo rious battle at MlllSprings January I9i862hence Col McHenrys combat with the rebels loccurred more than two months before those first two battles were fought Allen belonged to Co D and appeared to be about 25 years old When I saw him dead on that little youthIwas still on his lace not yet darkened by the shadow of death On May 30 1889 I assisted in the decoration of Allens grave and those of some of his comrades in a little country cemetery only a few miles northwest of the hill where Comrade Allen fell No monuments mark the gravesnothing but rough stones on which are scratched the names of the dead soldiers EDWIN FORAES Co lJ7th Ky Fordsvllle Ky A WEBFOOT COW Takes
