Circuit Court who has bee elected to the office since the las Trial of Caleb Powers has declined to preside in the coming trial of the caseJudge Stout is of the opinion tha he or Special Judge Robbinswho pre I sided in the last trial is qualified t- acty But on account of his connec tion as Attorney for the Commonwealth I in the Howard case he declined for consciencious reasons to preside Attorneys representing Powers want Stout to preside and attorneys for the Commonwealth i1 want Robbins with whose rulings they are already familiar to preside To settle the matter of who should try Powers it was agreed that a conference be held between the attorneys representing the defense and prosecution and that if an agree ment could be reached Judge Stout could certify to the Governor the i t necessity for appointing a special judge who would be satisfactory to both sides Mr Franklin readily assented to this but when the attorneys started to consult about the matter he re fused absolutely to consider anybody but Judge Robbins Major Owens proposed the names of four Demo crats any one of whom he declared would be acceptable to him They were Judge A P Humphrey of Louisville Judge Dishman of Bar boursville Judge Black of Bar boursville and Judge Askew of GeorgetownAfter found that no agree ment could be reached Judge Stout again took the case under considera tion and stated that he would prob ably certify the need for a special Judge He said however that he wanted to think the matter over again before taking any action The refusal of the prosecution to agree to any of the four men pro posed by the defense caused quite a surprise as all are leading lawyers in the State and are known as strong Democrats It is probable that de spite the protests of the defense Judge Robbins will be on the bench V at the special term It will be remembered that Judge Robbinson completion of the former trial of Powers pronounced judgment on the defendant the same day that the verdict was rendered with- outJ I giving his attorneys an opportunity to prepare and file a motion t and proper grounds for a new trial I i andit is probably for this and other I reasons that the

list only 175118 in cash witheleven Banks in the county one of which reports 209000 on deposit It is very difficult to get money listed for taxation and the consequence is that the land must bear the

Representative Cocke who filed charges of corruption against Senfitor Bailey of Texas and who is now prosecuting the same before a Legislative committee was asked Wednesday whether he had any more witnesses to come before the com mittee and what he intended to prove by them he replied that there I was one witness whom he had asked for at first he was very desirious to have come This was J D Suggs of Iron county who had been summoned but had been prevented by illness from coming before the committee He said he expected to prove that Bailey had borrowed the sum of 7000 from a brother of Sugg Sen i ator Bailey replied That is a lie It is infamy to allow any man to I stand there and make a statement i that is a downright malicious lie and a lie made out of whole cloth The committee

BRANDED AS LIARS BYy CLOVERPORTS COUNCIL Are Newspapers That Published an Account of The Coal Train Holdup After a few preliminary whereases the City Council of Cloverport the metropolis of our sister county of Breckenridge and whose marshal Tuesday February 5 held up a coal train for over two hours and it is alleged compelled the train crew to side track a car of coal for the use of the town resoluted as follows First That we as a Council and individually condemn in severest terms the false and foolish act of the newspaper reporter who caused such report as indicated to be pub lished and circulated Second We brand as false in whole and in part each and every statement to the effect that his coun cil at any time passed drastic or any resolution or ordinance in any way pertaining in the fuel situation or the remedy thereof Mr John D Babbageeditor of the Cloverport News says through the columns of his paper It is a plain fact though not on the city records that the council did authorize the city marshal to holdup a train But these gentlemen after seeing their mistake and some of them through fear of loosing their jobs with the Henderson Route turn yellow and join in a sweeping denial of every newspaper report published concerning the incident call all men who wrote the articles a liar try to exonerate themselves from all blame and walk out of the mess as though they had never ordered a train hold up The mayor and the city council have officially called the news and other papers throughout the State liars The council has shown neith er regard nor respect for the news papers in the matter and has there fore made enemies for the town It matters little to the newspapers what the council of this village may have to say about them The coun cil appears to the newspapers as a very small pebble on a very large- I beach The council has displayed a bad spirit in the whole affair and as a result Cloverport will suffer ANNUAL MEETING OF UNION MINERS Of Western

Having led in the organization o f the dark and Burley growers and being deepely interested in the per manent success of our work I want to utter a word of warning and hope you will each take it to heart Dont kill the goose that lays the golden egg That is dont grow too much tobacco Now that the growers have gotten into a position that they can compel profitable pri ces the tendency to plant all out of doors in tobacco will be augment ed unless the thoughtful ones keep preaching against it Overproduction will disrupt your oiganizatioi and place the trust again in the sad die as sure as sun rise brings day The special use of your local union is as a school to educate the peopl along these lines You can by organized efforts secure a profitable price for all the tobacco that the world needs but no more Study the demands of the markets and arrange to keep the acreage equal to the de mand and no more In this way your complete control of the price can be made permanent and not otherwise I beg of the thoughtful people among the growers to give much attention to this question If you find a man who is inclined to putout a large crop of tobacco reason with him Why put out fifty acres when twentyfive will bring the same amount of money A lot of conservative thinking and action is now necessary to prevent the loss of the fruits of our victory This can be done by education through the local union and thoughtful men The thoughtful people of Kentucky know that I am deeply interested in their success and would not sound a note of warning if I did not think in was needed H

of Evan Williams Who died at the residence of his Brother Eliga Williams January 3 1907 having gone there on a vi- sitaged 88 years and 11 days In early life he married Mary Yaunts and settled among the hills that look over the beautiful and pic aresque waters of Green river With his own hands he laid the forest and tamed the landscape He built himself a beautiful home and surrounded it with luxuries that almost lulled the senses and bade want flee to less cultivated homes Evan Williams made no great adp about his religion or politics he believed that religion was a life and that it belonged to the individual he used his politics when he voted and let the people do the talking thave often visited his home and never heard him complain of it be eng too hot nor too cold too wet nor-

a woman Rather than allow Eve with whom he was in love as Romeo was with Juliet to die alone after she had eaten the apple and come under consequent sentence of death Adam ate some of the apple too and thus made certain that he would die Such was one of the unusual doctrines advanced before 2000 persons- in Orchestra Hall Chicago by Rev Charles T Russell of Allegany Pa who spoke on the Overthrow of Satans Empire Adam really committed suicide declared Mr Russell Because he loved Eve so fondly as the only living thing on earth with which he could have compan ionship he ate the forbidden fruit after she had partaken thereof and thus knowingly brought sentence upon himself He follqwed the womans example through his love for her and thus killed himself under the proclamation of the Lord It is quite easy to see that this was the case and that Adam was in trutha suicide You will remember that God said If you eat thereof you will surely die in referring to the forbidden fruit There you have Gods authority for it Saving Frozen Plants Nearly every cold snap we hear some lady of our acquaintance saying that some of her house plants such as palms ferns etc are frozen In such an event it does not neces sarily mean that they are ruined Quick and proper treatment will often save them When the discovery is made the frozen plants should be at once moved to a room in which the temperature is slightly above the freezing point Never put them near a stove After they have been placed in the cool apartment they should be thoroughly sprayed with cold water By keeping the plants cool and wet the frost is gradually forced rom the leaves and the tis sues are not injured They should be kept in the cool darkroom for at least three days After they have again been brought into the light the wilted parts should be cut off fully an inch into the solid stem They would decay and effect the sound portions of the plant if allow ed to remain If they are badly frozen the tops of tender plants can never be saved but there is generally enough strength left in the roots to produce a new growth Every frozen plant should be given- a chance to recuperate no matter how badly it mays m to be injured oA

WITHOUT AN ISSUE OR PLATFORM What Was Once Kentucky Democ racys Pride Now Shunned And Repudiated Sun Sontinei It was once the pride of Kentucky Democrats to meet in convention and adopt platforms The issues before the voters and taxpayer of the State would be covered in the several planks all of which committed the party and the candidates to a certain policy There is nothing of the kind now There are no doubt thousands of Democrats that would prefer to have their party committed to something but this class of Democrats have no voice in the matter It is all done in the management and the man agement is wise Suppose for instance that we should have an oldfashioned Demo cratic State Convention of the kind that we had before Goebel and Red wine fid Judge Hargis instituted the Music Hall affair One of the first resblutions would be to view with alarm the centralization of power This would slap the State administration square in the face for within the past seven years all power has been centralized at Frank fortWe are in favor of economy in public expenditures and the collec tion of the State revenue at the low est possible cost to the taxpayers This principle would be contradicted by every act of the Democratic or ganization New and unnecessary offices have been created by the score Our taxing system is in total disregarded of any business princi ples We are in favor of an impartial enforcement of the laws This would create a smile from everyone that has noted the judicial acts of Cantrill at Georgetown and Carnes atJacksonEvery that the Demo crats have contended for in the past has been violated or repudiated by the present Democratic machine in Kentucky It is therefore wise not to have a platform To do so would be embarrassing CUMBERLAND TEL CO UP

HAND October 1914 is the Date for the End to Come According to Edmund Williamson The Watch Tower Bible and Tract t throughMrnounces the above date to be the be ginning of the millennium Mr Williamson who is secretary to Charles T Russell head of the society did not however announce that there would be a general con flagration of the earth and an in cineration of all the wicked on that date but rather a great change in the words of H G Wells marked by the secondan invisibleadvent- of Jesus Christ after which the era of complete holiness and peace will steadily develop The speaker voiced the opinions of Mr Russell which are based up on a careful study spiritually philological and arithmetical of Holy Writ particularly the utterances of the prophetsWe fixed this date from the scriptural prophecy to the effect that seven times shall pass over before the second advent said Mr Williamson Now the times of the Gentiles to which reference is made began when Israel was first cast off from divine favor as shown by its being taken into captivity by Babylon That date was 606 B C loA time in chronological prophecy is a lunar year either symbolical or literal If the latter its length is 360 days if the former 360 years Seven times on the latter basis would be 2520 years which would bring us to A D 1914 or to the be ginning of 1915 according to the Jewish system of reckoning time The culmination of the present era will according to Mr William son be allpervading anarchy Then will come the second advent of Christ not however in physical and visible form At the same time certain kings will rise from the grave as perfect Godlike men and probably will be the reincarna tion of the old prophetsthoughs- ince they will be invisible they can hardly be said to be truly incar natedThese kings will select the best of living men as princes who will teach the rest of the world how to live and whose teachings and admin istration will be universally accepted Mr Williamson held that the Jews would be the first people to align themselves with the great change since they had most preparation for it Ednorsed by the County The most popular medicine in Otsego county and the best

Legislature taxing old bachelors 5 a year but its author has been bluff ed out and will hardly have the nerve to push it and the Legislature will not pass it this session It might have done so had not Representative Tony Cermak of Chicago lost his nerve Mr Cer mak drafted a measure to put an annual levy of 5 on every unmar ried male or more than thirty years but after framing up these things with the Speaker to have it referred to a favorable committee he weak enedIt was like this said Mr Cer mak I did get up the bill think ing it would bring in a lot of addi tional revenue I told one of the newspaper men and he printed a paragraph about it and since then I have been annoyed so much that I have given up the idea First I had a vigorous kick from some of my Catholic friends who declare it would an outrage to tax the clergy men others wanted to limit ties tax to the priesthood Men and women with all sorts of schemes regarding marriage and divorce wanted to amend the bill Some were in earn est and others made the bill the but of ridicule Right now I am getting dozens of letters a day and as that fool newspaper story spreads my mail is increasing I devoutly wish I had never

TO BE A CENTENARIAN Sir Lauder Bruntons Advice To I ReachOne Though threescore years and ten is generally regarded as the normal span of life there is no insuperable reasons in the opinion of Sir Lauder Brunton why it should not be the rule rather than the exception for men arid women to retain their ac tivity until 90 or even a 100 Sir Lauder treats the subject in a paper in the LancetIThe number of men living to 100 years per 100000 of the population from 1891 to 1900 is only 7 and of women 24 as compared with 15 men and 30 women in 1838 to 1854 Dust Sir Lauder Brunton regards as one of the greatest enemies of oldage since it is a frequent causeIof colds and other eases At the time when I used my consulting j room as a library he I found very frequently that saysII had occasion to consult a book one of the top shelves I was apt to get a cold in the headIThis recurred with such regular ity that at last 1 took to sponging the top of the book with a solution of carbolic acids before using it Chills and especially local chills are to be guarded against Wind which comes fairly in ones face is little to be dreaded but if wind catches one in the back of the neck behind the ear or even at the side of the head it is much more dangerousLargely open windows are com paratively safe but a chink through which the air blows with force is to be carefully avoided One reason of this probably is that wind blowing through a chink causes a more rapid current of air awl thus chills the part of the body against which it impinges much more quickly than air moving slow sy and still more than air which is not moving at all Improper mastication of food is also a fruitful cause of organic dis eases in middle age The practice of gobbling Sir Lauder Brunton says may to a certain extent at least be responsi ble for the larger proportion of cancer of the stomach which occurs in 551years2967 while at65 years the numbers are nearer equal being 2GS5 and 2917 and at higher ages they are reversed Food dont digest Because the stomach lacks some of the essential digestants or the digestive juices are not droperly balanced Then too it is this undigested food that causes sourness and painful indigestion Kodol for indigestion should be used for relief Kodol is a solution of veg etable acids It digests what you eat and corrects the deficiencies of the digestion Kodol conforms to the

Columbus every after noon at three he waived a signal from the Executive office in the capitol to his wife who was watch ing for it in the hotel opposite Concluding Governor Harris said William

bly end you can save money by looking into their inducements offer ed in their advertisements- In view of the fact that everything that constitutes the makeup of a newspaper has advanced materially in

to discover a plan for assessments which will bring about a more equal distribution I the burdens of taxation Since oI ernment is necessary for the protec tion of ourcitizenship and to secure us in our property rights taxation is also necessary Government must be maintained at a large cost no matter if it does fall into un worthy hands which render its benefits and protection unequal and of seeming slight value The fact that the true benefits which should come to the individual citizen from a just and economically administered j government have been reduced to I k the smallest minimum though too much politics in State offices has no doubt been a strong temptation to the taxpayer to cover his proper in order to escape contributing to a fund to be used for graft and salaries for seedless officers We have too much government Taxes are too high In this we need to return somewhat to the simplicity of olden times Our forefathers never dreamedof such a thousandheadi monster in government which could seek to regulate all the details of our daily walk in life But we started out to call attention to a feature of the assessment list for Ohio county which will be found in another column The item of money seems to have escaped almost entirely In the eleven banks in Ohio county there is on depos the sum of 85064585 and yet those who own this cash listed only 175118 Of course the amount in bank does not represent all the cash in Ohio county and yet It shows more than the town lots and almost half as much as the lands Yet only about twenty per cent of this large amount is listed to bear its just proportion of taxation Is it any wonder that County Board and State Boards of Equalization find it necessary to raise values The serious part of it is that when they do so they still do not reach this cash item The trouble is with the individual who furnishes his list Some way should be found to correct this fearful inequality TheI man who owns a little home who is the flower of our citizenshipl cannot escape if he ratelwhichcould be lowered materiallyI Hartford District Union Postponed On account of the inclement weather which prevailed at that time the

Washington Star knows that the shark is a coward A man who has served many years in the navy tells of an experience with sharks at Tahiti A crew of seamen gunners had obtain ed permission to take a beach swim and hnd not given a thought to harks although they had seen num bers of them about the harbor In nddition to being young writes tho sailor I wns more self confident than Ive ever been since because there wasnt a man or boy on board that could teach me anything about swimming Thats how it came about that as soon as we jumped into the water on the Papetc beach- I proceeded to outswim all the rest just to show em I didnt turn to look back until I was about 300 yards from the beach The only reason why I turned around then was because I heard a lot of noise from the beach When I turned Isaw about a hundred naked natives and all of tho fellows from our ship lined up on the beach at the edge of the wa ter jumping up and down and waving their arms at me and yelling with all their might But I saw something more important than that There were it seemed to me about a million huge wet and shiny shark fins between me and the beach Some of them werent more than ton yards from me I stopped and trod water and nervously slapped the surface of the water with my hands I noticed that when I slapped the water par ticularly hard the sharks that were nearest to me edged back and cir cled at a greater distance from me So I kept on slapping the water The sharks were waiting for me to get tired and they took it easy Forty natives put out after me in one of those sixty foot long and two foot wide canoes with the outrigger arrangement familiar in the south sets and in the how of tho boat and directing them was an old quarter master from a British trading schooner in the harbor Splash keep asplashing you Yankee pup idiot he bawled at mo as the canoe approached where I was in the middle of the semicircle of wRiting sharks- I was a good deal scared but as the canoe approached 1 noticed that helping over the side and slapping and churning the water with all their might and main That settled it The sharks dispersed like a bunch of stampeded mountain goats and I was hauled into the canoe and scold ed by the British quartermaster for my folly until we pulled up on tho beach That was first experi ence with the cowardice of sharks Rival Organizations keepinghisspoke at last to the

the United States of Colombia In the woods adjacent to the city of Moyobamba grows a tree which the natives call rain tree It is about fifty feet high when it reaches maturity and about three feet in diameter at its base and has the property ofabsorbing an immense quantity of humidity from the atmosphere This it con centrates and subsequently pours forth from its leaves and branches in a shower and in such abundance that iii many cases the ground inI its neighborhood is converted into a veritable bog It possesses this curious property in the greatest de gree in the summer when the rivers arc at the lowest point and wa ter is scarce It has been suggested that this tree be planted in the more arid parts of Peru for the benefit of the farmers Reassuring ExplanationsI ilrs Potts was filled

Mindanao in the Philippines there are many natives houses in the tree tops Where the forests are thick the entrances to villages arc often at considerable distances and by way of suspended bridges from tree to tree Thus one may walk directly beneath a cluster of houses says the author of Tho Gems of the East without suspecting its presence On one occasion by mere luck while struggling through a bamboo forest ho came to a place where resting against the thick growth was a severed bamboo of great height with notches cut in it Rec ognizing it as a Mansaka ladder he mounted it to see what was at the summitTo amazement there lay on the top of the vegetation two long horizontal bamboos on which mud dy feet had trodden and beyond these other bamboos forming a path or bridge He signaled his men to be quiet and follow and then proceeded to cross the first length of the rickety way some twenty feet above the ground When he had gone about thirty he came suddenly out into a clearing where were four large elevated houses The path he was on led to the nearest one and they were all connected by bridges To cross the shaky bamboo over the open was a problemfor one less birdlike than the tree dwellers but taking oil his shoes the traveler went ahead He had scarcely reach ed the middle and most ticklish part when tho Mansakas in the houses detected his presence With I a chorus of yells they sent stones and arrows at him and one old woman crawled out on the bridge mid shook it so that only by usinij Icith hands could he ding to it At lithe was able to stand up and make the sign of peace The old WUUKUI stopped and stared at him while his men crowdedup on the bamboo lath- prepared to discharge their gins into the houses if necessary to pro test him The traveler called his interpreter Toll her she must not be angry with me he said1e11 her she looks ugly when she is angry Tell her I am a friend and carry no bolo nor even a spear If they lay down their arms 1 will kill no one The old woman who still had some stones clutched in her hands hesitated for awhile and then regretfully droppedthe missiles The traveler went toward her and caress ed her scarred face She seized his hand in hers which were trembling land the men and women in the houses stilled their racket irhe old woman was the chiefs i bore the scars ofmany I fights She said they had mistaken the party for slave traders Being j reassured she turned and led the party into the village and there theywere entertained at a feast SheI 3veu offered to adopt the traveler and make him chief if he would j stay but he declined the offer firm I ly without regretII Men Living In Nests Several travelers who have re turned from the heart of Africa and i the Australasian continent tell won derful stories of nest building peo j pie who inhabit the wilds of those countries The bushmen of Austra lia arc perhaps the lowest order of men known They are so primitive that they do not know enough to build even the simplest form of hut for shelter The nearest they can approach to it is to gather a lot of twigs and grass and taking them into a thicket or jungle build a nest for u home The nest is usually built large enough for the family and if the latter is very numerous then the nests are of large size Sometimes the foliage above will form n natural covering but there is never any attempt at construct ng

sleeping car going west They were in the smoking compartment with two or three others and a general conversation started The talk turned on Senator Tillman of South Carolina because it was the night he was billed to talk in Chicago One of the men turned to the friend of Waterman and asked What do you think of Tillman anyway- I P think said the lean to whom the question was addressed that UE IB NOT A SHAM AND IMITATION Tillman is a courageous man a statesman of principle and honor He may be a trifle rough but he is on the level He is a genuine re former and not a sham and imita tion like Joe Folk of Missouri and Ben Lindsay of Denver who is run ning as an independent candidate for governor of Colorado There was no response to this statement and the talk drifted to other things An hour or so after ward the train drew into Jefferson City and one of the men who had been in the smoking room got off Do you know who that was a man who had been saying nothing asked of the eulogist of Tillman- I do not Well that was Governor Folk New York World Obeys Physicians Orders Captain George II Knox the richest officer in the United States army is an advocate of temperance according to the

thatwaltz They are about the same size as the common kind but arc different in appearance for they arc speckled with black and white around the head and neck It is said that they have a habit of whirl ing around for hours at a time with only short stops perhaps to get breath And they whirl in couples too just as human beings do but much more rapidly They arc not trained to do this The habit is natural to the mice It is said that the whirling mania seizes them nearly always when they are run nipgand even when they are try escape from an enemy That isnn unfortunate feature of the performance for if they stop to take a waltz while the enemy is in hot pursuit they are pretty sure to be gobbledup A Coffee Cup BarometerI If you wish to know what sort of weather the next six or eight hours
