selling or storing tobacco onside the association warehouses have been fastened on the gates of many farmers in this county says a Cadiz dispatch to the CourierJour nal and many of tho growers fear ing dynamite or the torch have can celled contracts which they had made to sell their crops outside the asso ciation Fastened to the gates with V prices of rope or grapevine the fol lowing notices mysteriously appear If you dont put that tobacco in organization and store it at a Cpbb or Cerulean we are going to give you hell Cadiz agreement is no go we are running this now NIGHT RIDER Frightened by these messages many planters have quickly obeyed the command and have delivered their tobacco to the association ware- houset inCobb orGerulean Fearing that their barns and even their housesmightbe burned or blown up Avith dynamite as has been done in the dark tobacco districts some of the planters took no chances Others have ignored the warning arid will abide by their contracts The Cadiz agreement which is referred to in the warning was made lsiLsolutionof the warbetween the association and nonassociation grow ers Many of the planters had sold their crops outside the association and it was agreed that they should be allowed to keep these contracts and in return they agreed to put all future crops into the association This agreement has been in effect and has been working satisfactory until lately when there has been some dissatisfaction t A recent attempt to blow up with dynamite the tobacco barn of a man who refused to join the association in Caldwell county combined with the warnings to the Trigg county growers Has caused a revival of the unrest which existed immediately after thetwo stemmeries at Prince ton were destroyed and farmers allover Trigg and Cardwell counties are on their guard at all times Leaders of the Dark Tobacco Grow ers Association condemn these threats pf violence and say that the association has no knowledge of them or of the men

Murder Prosecution Turned Down at Ev ery Point By Beckhams Special Judge Jackson Ky Jan SThe Com monwealth received many setbacks today in the trial of Judge James Hargis on the charge af complicity in the murder of Dr Cox Just be tore the adjournment Mr Byrd one of the attorneys for the prosecution declared that the court has not said turkey to the Commonwealth once during the entire day The Commonwealth tried this morning to have the other alleged conspirators tried before Hargis but special Judge Karnes who was appointed by Governor Beclham refused to allow this The Com monwealths attorney then sprang a surprise on the defense by asking that the indictment against Hargis be quashed and the matter refer red to another grand jury Judge Karnes overruled the motion The Commonwealth then asked that the names of jurors be drawn froin the wheel but Judge Kurnes refused to grant this request and announced his intention of having a jury summoned from bystanders The defense then moved that the I I regular sheriff be not allowed to summon the jurors but that a speial elisor be appointed for that purpose It was here that the storm broke Mr Byrd Spoke for fifteen minutes scoting the conduct of af fairs in connection with the Breathitt feuds and appealing to Judge Karnes not to allow another stain on the state judiciary like those that were placed there by the form er trials of James Hargis He said that the court not being acquainted in Breathitt county would in all probability appoint a Hargis man as elisor and that done the rest would be smooth sailing for the de fendant He declared that Hargis had already arranged with men to serve on the jury and they were then in waiting ready to appear at a moments notice and that they would clear Hargis though he should go on the stand and confess to hav ing killed Dr Cox FLOODS RECEDING TRAVEL RESUMED Much Damage Done to Roads And BridgesGreat Incon veniance to Farmers The high water which for the inIconveniencemen in the low

the redistricting cases the Dem ocrats grow more apprehensive and the Republicans more confident Since the adjournment of the Legislature a year ago the Republicans have been continually tive while it is only in the last few days that the Democrats have be come interested They were so sure of their ground that they did not take the time to investigate but now they realize that the Republic ans have far the best of the situation In the event that the Court of Ap peals upholds the decisions of Judge Birkhead of Owensboro and Judge Galloway of Bowling Green in the redistricting suits now pending it is said that Gov Beckham will call an c ctra session of the General Assem bly This will be done for the os tensible purpose of having the State redistricted according to the Consti tution and the rulings of the court but in reality to pass legisltation that will give the Governor power to enforcement the Sunday closing lawThere is no doubt of the fact that the democrats are expecting an un favorable decision from the Court of Appeals Prominent Democrtic At torneys readily admit that the Re publicans will be sustained and that all of the redistricting Igislation en acted since 1892 will be declared un constitutionalIf is against the Dem ocrats it will be necessary of course to redistrict the state before the leg islative elected is held next Novem ber In calling the Legislature in extraordinary session for the pur pose of passing a redistrIcting bill it would be easy enough for the Gov ernor to incorporate in the calling the attention of the members to the need of legislation to enforce the Sunday law The redistricting cases were appealed from Ohio Circuit Court and Butler County Circuit Court several weeks ago They were taken up by the court of appeals and were argued for the Republicans by Judge W H Holt and Judge George Du Rene No one appered for the Democrats and the cases were submitted Later however the cases were reassigned for the purpose of giving the democrats an opportunity to argue them Argument was set for January 19 at which time both the Democrats and Republicans will be represented by counse- lIt is p ossible that the decision of the Court of Appeals will be made known in a week or two after the cases are submitted Then if the bills are declared unconstitutional and able lawyers say they are sure to bethe Goveonor will call an extra session It is necessary that the work be speediiy done and the Governor will not delay any longer than possible JUSt HOW TO DO It Advance to the inner door and give three distinct raps The devil will attend the

wagon is what G H Cur tiss of Hammondsport N Y calls a weirdlooking vehicle in which he occasionally takes a spin The frame is of wood and the wheels are of the ordinary bicycle type It is a threewheeler steering being accomplished by the forward wheeler The motor is a twocylinder air cooled gasoline of the V type such as has been generally used in airship work and is placed below the pro peller shaft and as near to it is pos sible The engine belts to a driving wheel on the propeller shaft which reduces the revolutions of the pro peller to 250 per minute The machine says Mr Curtiss in Popular Mechanics although of no commercial value is thoroughly practical and will easily run thirty miles per hour The propeller is 6 feet in diameter and has a pitch of about 52 feet It is needless to say that the rig is a great horse scarer and blows up a great cloud of dust when pass ing along the road and will even pull the leavas from the trees where the branches are low The machine complete weighs 300 pounds There is no patent on the idea and anyone with his small gaso line motor can build his own craft An iceboat can also be driven in the same manner The idea has just been utilized in Fraance where M Archdeacon df Archeres applied the propeller to a motorcycle In his case the propeller was carried in front which had the effect of pulling instead of push ing The entire outfit weighs

People of K ntucky Are Dis franchised and How the People Can Right This Wrong To the People of Kentucky At the last regular session of the General Assembly an act was passed dividing the State into 100 Representative districts which has been approved by the Governor and clothed with all the outer habiliments or forms of law The Constitution of Kentucky pro vides among other things that The First General Assembly after the adoption of this Constitution shall divide the State into thirty elght Son atonal districts and one hundred Rep resentative districts as nearly equal in population as may be without dividing any county except where a county may include more than one district which districts shall consti tute the Senatorial and Representa tlvo districts for ten years Not more than two counties shall be joined to gether to form a Representative dis trict Provided in doing so the prin ciple requiring every district to be as nearly equal In population as may be shall not be violated It in making said districts inequality of population shall be unavoidable any advantage resulting therefrom shall be given to districts having the larg est territory No part of a county shall be added to another county to make a district and the counties forming a district shall be contigu ousThe General Assembly was directed every ten years thereafter to mils trlct the State according to this rule Conceiving that the act In question was a gross violation of both the let ter and spirit of the fundamental law of the State and that it deprived a large number of our people of the right of selfgovernment the under signed were selected by the unani mona voice of the Republican mom bers of the Legislature to take steps to assert the rights of the people of the State against this unjust iniqui tous and unconstitutional act of the LegislatureThe of a citizen to propor tionate representation In the Legisla ture so far as it can be practically carried into effect by the instrumen reclognlzedtution 155 Ill 452 By the act in question it appears that more than a quarter of a million of our people In twentyfour districts or rather In twelve of them have been denied and excluded from representation In the Legislature to all Intents and purposesiThe committee having occasion to also consider the acts of the LeglslaI ture of May 3 and June 28 viding the State into Senatorial and Representative districts and also the act of March 11 1898 dividing the j State into Congressional districts found that they were each and all j grossly unfair and vlolative of the State or Federal law governing the j subject As evidence that we are not mistaken In our views on this matter we attach hereto tables showing a num her of Senatorial and Representative districts taken from the various acts well all the districts as as Congressional under the act of 189S These figures taken from the acts and the census of the State speak mote eloquently and strongly than anything your committee can say on the subject and need but little com ment at our hands That we have a remedy against the violation of the supreme law of tha State and the United States manifst ed In these various acts of the Lesls lature seems to be too clear for dlsI pute or argument The courts of the country have not regarded apportionment acts as exuep j tlons to tho rule that Legislature are bound by constitutional limitations InI the enactment of laws and that they disregard them it Is the function of tho courts ti t leclare 1cPherj son vs Blacker 14G U S 1 Prowty i vs Saver 11 Kannns 2I55 State

vs Blacker 93 Michigan 1 Morris vs Wrlghtson 50 New Jersey Law 120 People vs Rice 135 New York 472 j People vs Van Bokkcleu 73 North Carolina 198 The courts of New York New Jersey Indiana Michigan Wisconsin and North Carolina have set aside and de dared void apportionment acts and in all the States that have so far had occasion to pass upon the validity of such laws the courts have not failed to assert their right and power to do cide them valid or invalid as the facts in the particular case required the court to determine We have found in none of the acts that have been contested and held Invalid in our sister States anything more grossly unfair and violative ot the rights of the citizens to partlcl pate upon equal terms In the affairs of his State government than the acts of our own Legislature that wo pro pose to test In the courts At the last election for President in our State the Republican party cnst more than 47 per cent of the total vote cant and th Democratic party n frnc tlon under 50 per cent If the Assem bly districts were fairly divided In ac i cordnnce with the vote thus cast the Republicans would have sixtyfive members of the Legislature instead ot thirtytwo now held by them I rI i- E1 The committee after a tarerurcoit I deration of the lliwnnd the facts hav agreed th tlt is the duty of oui people to contest the acts of the General Assembly of May 3 1893 June 28 1893 March U1898and the act of March 1906 and wo have the ut most confidence that with the propel I effort each and all of these alleged laws will be set aside and held foi naught and that the Legislature will I bo reconvened and laws more in ac cordance with justice right and the Constitution will be enacted We deem it prudent that various suits be filed against each act and in every form and manner that suet suits have been filed In our slstei States so that there can be no question that some of the number are properly brought and will therefore have to be decided upon their merits We have secured eminent counsel to take charge of the litigation in behalf of the people and it will require considerable money to pay the expenses of these various suits give our chosen counsel a moderate fee for their services and the actual expense Incurred by the committee in prosecuting the contests in the courts TheI committee is serving without salary or hope of any financial reward for iis services in the matter This is not a party matter as it strikes at the very root of the princi pIe of selfgovernment and the equal right of all citizens under the law to participate through their representa tives in the enactment of their laws affillIin this contest for the preservation of the rights of the people and to aid us both with voice pen and purse Jn our efforts to assert and

his baton the bed end cursing himself as the greatest fool alive dropped Into a chair chjlngtliwho had not made the common mis take of being born of poor parents ho bad gone to pass a whole mouths va cation In the same Connecticut village where his sweetheart and her mother Were staying- J was too surprised to do more than stare at Bill In astonishment This morning said he Alice and some of her girl friends started up the plcnlcUountRIgawish It was a big hole In the ground About 10 I decided to taro a walk and accidentally meet them I took a roundabout way because there was sure to be more or less giggling when I made my appearance no matter how nicely It was managed my6rstbestings on his head Well said he after a few strong pulls at the pipe I soon reached a cursed little hill which sat up against the mountain like a pimple beside a mammoth wart and perched on the side of the measly bunch of dirt was nn enormous rock left there by a gin cler I suppose The day It was drop ped there was cold but the day 11111 Morse found it was still colder Climb- Ing up to the lower side and leaning back against It I took a look around Just then some one set off n blast or they began cannonading oft Mole St Nicholas Anyway the Jar seemed to shake the hill and that stone moved I braced myself against It instinctively The motion stopped and then came one of those flashes of Intelligence for Which I am famous as you know old manYou have seen a schoolteacher take his class Into the yard and demon strate that one boy can keep a ladder upright by looking out for the center of gravity etc and that it takes them all to stop Its falling when you let It tip Oh I knew all about It Bill Morse knew If I let that stone get started It would crush me for It was BO broad I could not spring out of the way I bored one shoulder Into the double dyed thing and finally twisted round so as to face It worked my way to the edge the cold sweat standing out all over me and Jumped clear were dark for a moment but I soon straightened out and looked to see where the rock had fallen It hadnt budgedI going to ask Bill If he was an gry but he had jumpel up and was kicking his valise around the room and 1 thought It ions unnecessary Bob he cried between the kicks withthetended to conceal your real thoughts After a few more kicks and a fresh pipeful Bill resumed I rushed round to tie top of that Infernal rock defter mined to push It over If It didnt In tend to take a drop Itself I moved It about an Inch and to do more than that would require all of the kings horses Oh but Solomon was a wise oDe lIe said all men were fools That stone Bob was a rocking stone Whqn I realized what it was I won dered why Solomon had not mention ed me particularly I began talking to trio steno and was just beginning to do myself thud that beastly chunk jus tine when that hen picnic came scream ing down the mountain side They had soon the whole circus Alice gasp ed out Oh W Will Its too fufunny and then put her hand to her side and absolutely shrieked with laughter I gave her one look and then told her n plain truth that I know shell lever forgive Then I rushed back to the hotel got my things and here 1 dmIIts all over Im a fool and a ed one my boy I agreed with him but didnt mention it Then the light was turned out and we turned In I slept but I dont think Bill did lie moped around the house and ate precious little The landlady was sure he ought to see a doctor If I tried to cheer him up he only scowled and cursed himself Connecticut the big hill the little hill and everything except the girla mighty sensible giri too as you will see for a few days after us I was entering the house out rushed Bill as happy a man as you would want to meet Ho had received a note from Alice and was on his way to see her This Is what she said Dear Will Wo reached home today I told mother I simply would hot stay there another hour when I found you were not coming back Do como and see me and bring your forgiveness with you I know I was just what you said a blanked silly fool for laughing so and If you had not been angry you would not have been a sure enough man and I would not have cared a bit for you As It Is I love you more than ever Yours onlyALICE P Slint It was too awful funny to see you save your precious life In that manner and then hammer that poor help less old

Corn while an excellent feed for fattening hogs should be used IDery moderate amounts for breeding animals It should not form more than onethird of the ration This Is due to the fact that corn Is a fat and heat producing feed The ration of the brood sow should be of a nitrogenous nature so as to have a cooling effect upon the system Sows which have an abun dance of exercise can withstand more corn feeding than those that are con fined to the pens A ration of shorts and oats or some gluten feed or any other feed stuff which is fairly rich in nitrogen will give good results Probably one of the best rations will be a mixture of one part corn one part shorts and one part oats In sonic In stances bran Is used Instead of shorts for feeding of brood sows especially where mature animals are
