the larg est crowds of men ever seen in theI city on last Saturday says the boro Inquirer The original call tha brought it together was one not expected to bring very many men to gether but there was something mys terious about the call and Its circula i tion and about tho influence that this call exerted In bringing out a large k crowd or rather two largo crowdsF ANONYMOUS FIRST CALL I The first call was an anonymous one but by prominent and farmers who have been responsibleI the peaceful army of the country They are chiefly tjtosi who do not pool and who are deter mined not to pool In some way flu word got out that the organization or the meeting was to denounce am antagonize the socalled army of peaceful invasion This seemed to be ample to call tho army back and I 1 it came In larger numbers than ever before Not only did it come but it took posesslon of the courthouse peace fully and for the purpose of promoting peace and of redeclarlug itself In lavor of peace and of peaceful meth ods and to declare vigorously nguins 4iny who should disturb or threaten tcfi disturb the public peace HOME WAREHOUSE MEETING Another call was issued for tho pur pose of getting together the members of the recent organized independen tobacco growers for the purpose of getting their sanction of tho sale by the comlttee or officers of tho Greet RIver Equity Warehouse company of tho 1907 crop of tobacco 01 promised to be pooled with that comI pany This body finally held its meet Ing in the courthouse yard It was presided over by J D Jeffrey of the home warehouse company A series of resolutions were read by Hon H G Overstreet and adopted by the meeting They endorsed the sale ofl the crop of the 1907 tobacco prom Ised support to law and order and de pounced all threats and acts of intim idation The resolutions are said to have been prepared by Dr B F TIch ornor and are very mild compared with what a few wished them to be After they were read a short tall was made by Mr Overstreet and an other was made by Dr B F Tichenor Doth were conservative and the only words that could bo considered at all overstreeljwhen isville poolers Take away from them a few paid officers or managers and there will be none of them left The session of this meeting was short It was a fine opportunity for an oator but there seemed to be none there wound up The crowd was largo and eager and would have listened to al most any utterance that might have been made but the fear of being si lent perhaps it was thaT made the orators mute After adjournment the crowd lingered about the cour house I yard and wherever it seemed that one man was having a few about him oth t ers would flock to them and listen In this way the great crowd broke up The circuit court room was the announced place of meeting and hero was held the lengthier and the more orderly meeting of the day It was called to order at the time announced for tho meeting of the farmers Pres ident J D Jeffrey of the Green River District Equity Warehouse company was the first to attract attention Ho rose as If to call the meeting to or der and announced that he was ready for the transaction of business It required but a glance over the quiet but thickly crowded audience to show him that ho was not in the house of bis friends but surounded with those 1i who regarded him and his associates in their corporate capacity as genuine i types of the genus dumpers He then said there was not room for all to get in the court room and they would adjourn to the court house yard Mr Jeffrey started to leave and only a very few followed him Many began to protect and call out for him to go ob with his meeting Go on with the- y+ business cried one and then others took t up What are you afraid of asked one and then another called outY01 are too cowardly to prep 4s side Anyway Mr Jeffrey did notI preside or attempt to preside left the room promptly- J W Dunn took the chair He announced the first thing In order was the

will be adopted it Je believed and Powers attornyes will attempt to show that Henry Youtsey not only concccted tho conspiracy which led to the assassination of Wil liam Goebel but fired the fatal shot himselfMartin Lawrence former Jailer of Franklin county and at one time or another the keeper of all of the de fendants in the Goebel cases who have been in jail is said to bo the man by whom the defense proposes to detail an alleged conversation between Hen ry E Youtsey the convict nod Tal low Dick Combs the negro witness killed by a train near Georgetown some weeks ago As the story goes in ad vance of the telling of It on the wit ness stand Lawrence says that he Dn ono occasion while Youtsey and Combs were In jail at Frankfort heard the negro say to Youtsey that his Youtseys aim was not true or his sight not good and that Youtseya re ply was to the effect that the end he sought had nevertheless been accom plishedThe second day of the trial was consumed in disposing of preliminary mo

result The injection of tho free silver issue into the State campaign of 1895 may very properly be said to have been the beginning of the end of the Democratic party in Kentucky It not only drove thousands of Democrats permanently Into the Republican par ty but so loosened party lines about many thousand others that they haveI not since been a dependable quantl tHy However the Democrats might

tutely saw that his political future de pended upon maintaining Intact the political machine fabricated by his daring predecessor and when three years later he received an almost unprecedented majority in his race for Governor ho saw in it not a reversion against the assassination of Goebel mud the vacillating policy of Governor Taylor but an endorsement of his machine and forthwith began

not very surprising when wo recall tlc recent history of the State The true and tried leaders of the party have been gradually eliminated and the small fry have been on top There was bound to be an end of this sort of thing ai some time and the end Is in sight Kentucky Is normally a Democratic state With men line John G Carlisle Win Lludsey Henry Wuttersou the late Col Brecklnrldge and others sidetracked It Is no wonder that the De mocratic ascendency In Kentucky has been tottering recently When Wil iainfsGeobcl was assassinated several years ago the Republican party was seriously damaged and Democratic ascendency was continued by that deed Goebel became a martyr and a certain set of small fry politicians nave been thriving on that martyrdom ever since Had Goebel not been mur deed he would long ago have been relegated to private life with the dis ipliroval of the people of Kentucky Gltbel was ublc unamicable and entirely uncrupuluus He canvassed the stnto of Kentucky for governor with lie result that he had only a trifle over 100 votes In a convention of over 1000 delegates Ilardlu and Stone to gether had otght or nine votes to Goe bfls onr Yet by deceiving and be traying Stone getting control of the I organization and nervily unseating several hundred delegates Goebel managed to secure the Democratic nomination It was the most artistic piece of highway robbery ever perpe trated against the Democracy of Ken tuckyIn the election that ensued Goebel was defeated and tho state election commissioners who were Democrats Issued a certificate of election to the Republican candidate Taylor But Goebel who was still a state senator held onn to his purpose and put up a contest before tho legislature in order 10 pluck the governorship as he pluck ed the Democratic nomination In short he was planning a cold steal It io hardly necessary to say that both parties lost their heads and in the midst of the general excitement some fool Republican shot Goebel It was only natural that this mur der should react against the Republi can party and make people forget the political sins of William Goebel But the small fry collected around Goebel have been living on his mur der over since They have the real murderer Henry Youtsey go In a measure and have concentrated their effort to bring about the hanging of Caled Powers who wasnt in Frank fort when Goebel was killed and who has been connected with the murder only by transparent perjurers The Powers case has been a greater stain on Kentucky tlan the Dreyfus case was on France but Franco had tho courage to correct her mistake Kentucky however bas evidently GoeIbelmany tactical mistakes in perpetuating the memory of that dastardly crime that the people have elected a Republican governor It is likely that Gov Willson will pardon Powers and right what seems to be a great wrong We trust he will do this not only In the Interest of justice but in the In terest of the people of Kentucky It Is time to put the Goebel case to sleep and resume normal ways Kentucky can not afford to live up on n mcmorvCommercial Appeal Dm FOUND THAT THE I BOY COULD WALK Some StlccessfulNonSnrglcat Work Done at Surgical I tUnic Because Tennyson Phillips age ten who knew he could not walk was compelled to walk anyhow Dr H R Allen and the State CCollege Hos pital seem to be In trouble Mr and Mrs William Phillips parents of Pen nyson declare he has been cruelly treated by the physician The physician and the score of medical students who witnessed the boys treatment In clinic at the hospital Thursday say the boy was made to walk by being con vinced that there was nothing tho matter with his powers of locomotion that he was scared into walking In other words though he had not walk ed without braces for several years The boy was brought to tho clin- Ic said Dr Allen by the mother She said he had been scalded seven years ago and had never been able to walk since He WitS wearing a set of braces that covered almost his whole body One glance at them caused me to think that If the boy could walk with those braces on he could walk better without them They didnt seem to provide any support whatever I examined his legs for any de formities there might be and fonud none nor was there any evidence of his having been scalded at any time The mother called attention to his kneessays they were swollen I could not see the swellng nor could any of the students or nurses I came to the conclusion that the boy cbuld walk if he were only con vinced that he could So I sent the mother from the room and had the boy lie on the operating table I told him I intended o amputate his legs that they were of no use to him and that keeping him in braces was considerable expense to his parents He agreed that it should be done The prospect didnt seem to worry him at all He called my bluff In other wordsI the students bring the in struments necessary for amputation and still he showed no signs of fear This aroused suspicion of another kind but that need not be mentioned Finally I said to thd students that inasmuch as I didnt intend to use chloroform they could see that ho didnt make a noise when I began to cut I told them to stuff a towel In his mouth in order to smother his cries As I did that I turnd my back Ho Immediately slipped oft time table to the floor Dont do that doctor ho cried I can walk He was standing upright I told him to walk He ran across tho room I said to him that he couldnt walk that ho could only run Then he walked slowly He kept his back humped however and I made some objection to that Then he walked as straight as anybody We called his mother in to see the boy walk He walked across the room to her To our surprise it made her angry It wasnt right she declared to abuse him that way She demanded the braces Wellit seems that some one of the students or someone else had sequestered time braces I dont know what became of them She got a cab to take the boy home Clarence Sticklnnd son of State Representative Harry G Strickland of Uloclassand son Ho says that the boy walk ed without difficulty from the carriage to the door of the house- E R Rush of Indianapolis and others of the students tells the story of time boys learning to walk in much the same manner as Dr Allen When Tennyson was first brought In to the class they say and the braces were taken off he could not stand up His legs gave way under him Several efforts were made to Induce him to stand alone but each time his legs doubled up and he fell to the floor Indlanap9lls News When tho

fact that his inerest in the deIsirehe bad agreed with himself should be 1 the offlcfal organ for a period of fifty years When Mr Everitt started the so ciety he foresaw that If It grew to be as great as his dreams told him it would be its power and profits would bo something phenomlnal With this In view ho undertook to forestall any action which might be taken by tho members in time to come by a con tract Whereby Uptodate Farming was tobo the official paper for a period of fifty years At the time this contract was made there were no members of the society except those chosen by Mr Everitt as Incorporators of the society and se lected by him as officials As editor of the paper he desired a fifty year contract as president of the society ho readily agreed to bind the society for that length of time and the men he had chosen to help him found lit tle difficulty in arguing themselves into the belief that It would be for the best Interests of the society to be thus bound to Mr Everitt and thoy or a majority of them counting Mr Everitt voted to endorse tho contract which Mr Everitt as president and the secretary he had chosen liad made with Mr Everitt publisher Of course the common law of this country and of England and most of our statute laws agree In saying that no man as officer or director of a corporation shall make a contract wit himself whereby he becomes a bene ficiary of his own act but it Is doubt ful whether Mr Everitt expected such contract to hold good In court as he has never before made it known to a convention and did so this time only wen he found the convention had determined upon owning or controlling an organ of its own when he sprung It presumably as a bluff To be sure contract was no good until the society had attained the proper proportions for had It been presented to a new society It would have been repudiated and its enforce ment would have killed the society at any stage To be sure the contract was no good when the motion was made to repudi ate it Mr Everitt acknowledged that he presumemd there was not a delegate In the house who believed the con tract was anything else than a selfish endeavor to further his own interests but he declared that it was really an effort to protcc the society against any effort It might make to have more than one official paper or any other official paper for fear they might get an over supply of official papers The society however took the same view of it that he feared it would and repudiated the contract by a vote of 271 to 14 If Mr Everitt had succeeded in building up a society with a million members and had kept his Imperils the official paper with himself as sole manager of its policy he would be inn position to control parties to dic tate to trusts to tear down or build up Individuals and to feather his own nest to any extent ho might desire The society saw all this and was de termined to take Uiat power out of the hands of any one Indlvlrual In fact that was time teal Issue at stake Other Individual members of the so ciety may have had ambitions but all ambition of all the factions was sub ordinated to this great desire to make the official organ the agent and ser vant of the people Instead of the tool of any one man In other words the society decided that it the society was too large to be owned by anyone individual oven If his name was J A Everitt If Mr Eveeritt had been willing to agree that tho soclot through Its di rectors should control tho editorial policy of its own organ he might still be publishing tho official paper but he was not willing and tho society has started a paper of Its own DO YOU GET UP WITH A LAME BACK Kidney Trouble Makes You Miserable Almost everybody who reads the news- nn to earn to now of the wonderful cures Ji1ade Dr

country am yet docs not want to acknowledge th errors of the party proposes this al ono of the planks of the next Demo cratlc platform Resolve That the policy of levying a Tariff on imports equaling the f difference In cost of production In our F1ownand In foreign counties has been policy of the Democratic party the policy of Washington Jefferson Jack- sond Buchanan and Randall and who ever faithfully carried out has beer Invariably attended with a high degree k of national prosperity Resolve That the Democratic party always the friend of labor of Indus try and of business would welcome the responsibility of readjusting the existing tho existing Tariff schedulesI strictly in tho Interest of dustry and of business and in full recognition of the time honored policy of a Tariff for revenue with incidental ProtectionThis a very neat hedge It affirms that the doctrine of the fathers of the country and patron saints of tho Democracy was Protection to American industries In affirming this the plank denounces all that the De mocracy has taught for these many years as a falsehood For have wo not heard that all Protection is an infamy Have we not been told that the Protective Tariff Is a robbery of tho people Have we not been asI sured that Jefferson and Jackson andI the other saints of tho Democratic parJ ty were in favo of FreeTrade And have not the Republican orators and newspapers been denounced as liars when they quoted these worthies asI favoring a Protective TariffIThat part of the first resolution that a places the amount of the Tarff to bo j Imposed as tho difference between wages j here and abroad has been placed in a hundred Republican platforms among others the Reepubllcan nation al platform of 1892 It is taken bodily from them The second plank is t- Ie merely a hedge to save the Democrat C party from entirely reversing its record while declaring in favor of at Protective Tariff If this thing goes on much longer the Democratic ty will be claiming that it is the orlgI inal and only Protective party in the country And in claiming this it would not qulto equal its lightning changes on the money question In which itt first declared the greenbacks an unconstitutional money nad then Insisted that tho country should have only the greenback as a currencyt It Is too late for the Democratic par ty to become a Protective Tariff Imrnty rite Southern Democrats who are represented by the man who wrotes this plank nre Protectionists at heart but they will have to become Repub licans If they want to see their Ideas embodied In legislation Tho Democratic party will never try to do itc and the failure In 1893 shows that they do not know how If they really wanted to do itMoline Ill Dis patchf100 Roward S1OO The readers of this paper will

by the United States Government continuously for several months past in get ting data on the domestic Infelicity- of the country and as a result the able statistician at the head of this anI932 married persons have been le gally separated in this couutry during the past twenty years We are furthermore Informed that it will be some months before all the field work in this connection is finished as there are about 42000 cases still to be investigated The report detail we are also informed will not be for publication for some time to come but pending this publicity and in order that popular anxiety mlgl t fn a measure allayed it is said tolestimated by the bureau that near twothirds of those who sue for di vorce are sucessful- Of course until the details shall be made public we will have no means of knowing whether the bureau has collected information of a general naIl ture with regard to this matter of domestic infelicity It is all very well o know that such and such a number if divorce cases have been filed and hat such a number of married persons have been legally separated but what an anxious public is really walt ng for is information on such points us How many

number of divorce cases started with rolling pins tin dippers china cups tea pots coffee pots and bricabrac It would jo all the better too if wo could learn how many of the divorced perI sons had

was urged in behalf of this pro posed section that it was demanded in justice to the farmer In order that since his property was of a visible and tangible nature and could not es cape assessment all other property should be put in the same boat No one ever disputed that this ought i to be done The only dispute was as to whether or not it could be done by this method It was contended j that certain classes of property which were of a kind that could be con cealed would escape assessment and i taxation if the burden of taxation put j pon them was too heavy and that e result would be that

Hon F A Derthick master cf the Stato Grange In discussing a proposition to permit of classification of the sources of tax revenue said There is a common ground upon which we can all stand Wo must have

they would be relieved from the temptation to commit the crime of perjury IThe Kentucky Grange The Kentucky State Grange had this same subject before It at the meeting held in Frankfort October 21 to 23 3007 Mr F P Wolcott Master of the State Grange discussed the ques tion in a very interesting manner as follows The order has been most active In behalf of tho just regulation of taxation recognizing that the farmer Is losing more from our present sys theIsystem any er class of citizens The order In rep resenting the agricultural class al ways endeavors to be fair and honorable with all other Interests and has the right to demand like treatment In return In nearly every stato in tho Union the cry has been loud against unjust revenue laws and steps are being taken to remedy the evils Various State Granges have by legII from taxation property aggregating vast sums in the posscslon of the wealthy and often kept by them In visible thus leaving the small hold Ings of the masses of people of mod- erato means to bear the burden of doubled taxation The present constitution of Ken tucky binds us to the general prop erty taxthat Is to the system of levying the same tax upon all classes of property for all purposes Thero should be an amendment to oui constitution which will allow the legisla turn to separate the sources of reve nuethat Is to raise the state revenue from certain classes of property leaving other classes of property to be taxed for local purposes only It has been argued by some that this would throw too much power into the hands of the legislature Should such an amendment prevail then- I would It devolve upon the voters of the state to pay stricter attention to the selection of their representatives than has obtained in the past in both city and county The Kentucky State Development association and other organizations have honored the Grange by placing upon its joint committee on taxation- a member of this order as represen tattoo of the agricultural interests of the state and it is Important that the views and demands of the farmers bo clearly defined at this state session It is recommended that this body promptly and emphatically takeact- Ion favor of just and equitable revenue laws and for the establish ment of an official tax commission to be composed of five membersfourr- epresenting respectively the great industries agriculture manufacturing mining aid commerce and it fifth member noted for the highest integrity and tor superior local ability I j I TAX CONFERENCE Students of National Fame Will Discuss Taxation at

Farmer For His Own Interest The farmers composing the Grange an organization that has done much study the real Interests of tho has been taking a good deal of interest In the subject of taxation lately and some very pertinent utterances on this question have been given out in the addresses of the Masters at annual sessions of various state Granges At a recnnt meeting of the Washington State Grange the Master gave considerable attention to the question- of taxation He scud in part- I urge every Grange in this state to take up the study of taxation In all its phases earnestly and seriously during the coming year for I feel strongly that we farmers have hardly realized the importance of thor oughly understanding the fundamental principles Of taxation- In considering the subject of state In the brief time I have been to give it since my mind has been fully aroused to Its Importance have come to doubt very much the wisdom of our present method of assessing state taxes Section 2 of Ar 7 of our state constitution Is as follows The legislature shall pro vide by law a uniform and equal rato of assessment and taxation on all property in the state according to its value in money This Is the general property tax similar to Kentucky The above constitutional provision similar to that of many of the west ern states and enjoins a system of taxation which has been tried In prac tically all the states of the Union It requires the application of the same rules of taxation to forms of property totally different in character Most of the older states such as New York Connecticut Massachusetts New Jer and Pennsylvania have constitutions which Impose no restraint on the power of the legislature or very little more restraint than that Imposed by the federal constitution Those states have developed systems of taxation more in harmony with modern condlI tionsThe attempt to tax all kinds of property by the same rules has In all times and In all countries Imposed heavier burdens upon rural districts than cities and In a large degree has measured the tax to be paid by each Lcitizen by the amount of his consumption rather than by the oppor tunity he enjoys to acquire wealth under the protection of the state The plan adopted by our neighbor Oregon is to apportion the state tax in proportion to the reve nue raised by each county Oregon made the mistake of not carrying out the principle to its logical conclusion The tax should be apportioned in pro portion to the entire revenue raised by each county nnd all the taxing din tracts within each county- It Is very easy to see that the more highly developed and more densely populated a county may be the money It needs for local purposes 1 proportion to its taxable values and the greater Is the power to pay taxes The tax apportioned In this manner will shift from the poorer and remote rural counties tho burden they now bear and Impose It on the moro thickly settled and prosperous coup ties This change would do away with the universal temptation to un dervalue property In order to shift the stato tax to other communities study of the experience of other state- shows that one of the greatest evils has been this incentive to undervalue It produces inequality and dissatisfac tion if not downright fraud The Ohio State Grange In Ohio they are proposing an amend ment to the constitution that will permit of a classification of the sources of revenue such as Is now In effect In Pennsylvania The difficulty with th Ohio constitution Is exactly simila- to that in Kentucky They are proposing there an amendment to the constitution which will make It read this way Taxes shall be levied a uniform rate upon all property of the same class The Ohio constitution now requires that taxes shall be uniform upon nil classes of property tho provision being similar to that of the constitution of Kentucky The Master Honorable F A Derthick commenting upon the proposed amend ment to the constitution said To pull up every stake in our constitution seems heroic treatment and If dono would throw upon the people added responsibility in the selection of their representatives If classification is to be tho plan adopted It should be left to a commission of tIleast five members appointed by th governor one from each of the tour sisters whose combined efforts bav made us all we axeone from manufacture one from mining one fro commerce one from agriculture This board should be reinforced by the ap pointment of a member of we11 ltnown Integrity and great legal ability The farmers are not committed to the idea of classification but we wish to join In the study of tax revision Itfhe Ohio State Grange assembled in session December 11 to 13 1900 by a unanimous vote expresse the desire of anprganized

at least she would show Mr Morgan that a western girl did not wear t her heart on her sleeve Oakdale shouted the conductor just as she reached this laudable de cisionShe stood on the platform amid the Drugs which the porter had arranged at t t her feet Various carriages and cars t ranged up beside the depot but thereIwas no sign of a messenger Carleton Morgans Yet she had made the 310 train the nearest hour to the one named by her mother 300 One by one the carriages traps and cars filled with residents or guests j More than one curious glance was aim ed at the tall well clad figure of the

Inwardly perturbed butler No Mr mind Mrs Morgan were not at homo They hud gone to Southampton to spend the week end with Mrs Morgans mulled sister No they had left no message No the Oakdale golf tourney wits not until the next Friday and Saturday No ors Morgans maid was not In She had gone with her mistress to Southampton Would Miss Dalrymple stop long enough torn cup of tea It was a raw day With the last statement Miss Dal rymplc agreed but she did not care for tea She wanted to get back to town not to tell her mother what she thought persons who got telephone mes 1ot tangled up but well Just to this double disappointment Of course there was enough to see and do In New York but she never had seen a golf tournament and It was embarrassing to face this calm mannered butler In the role of a heedless child who lead made a mistake about her in vitation And then there was Jimmy Perhaps Jimmy might have had an explanation to otter and now it was pushed a whole week Into the future and weeks are long when lovo Is youngShe climbed into the village hack and hack to the town right In the teeth of an ugly east wind they rode the girl wretched and the man Jubi lant at his shrewdness in recognizing the psychological moment for not tell ing all he knew At the depot once more Miss Dal rymplo drew out her purse The mon ey pocket contained 2 a dime two subway tickets and a tiny gold glove buttoner If she paid the driver 52 for her round trip ride sho would have 10 cents and two subway tickets with which to purchase her ticket back to town Then a brilliant idea came to her She would buy her ticket with a twoIdollar bill with the dime for a tip When the 417 train from town pull ed into the station a square shoulder ed forceful looking chop dived into the depot and made for the ticket window Coming into the gloomy room ho did not see very clearly the tall figure which stood In his way The station agent was saying I would be very glad to oblige you if you could find any one to Identify you but it is against oar rules Good after theIOh Carleton I am so glad Then sudden silence on the part of the two young people and wonder on the part of tho station agent The young man was the first to recover May 1 usurp my brothers place card be of service to you ho asked rather distantly Dorothy flushed then paled but finally her face set resolutely Yes I have made a mistake regard lug the date of the tournament and worse still I Drought only a little cash and this gentleman will not accept a check and I want to get home Tier glance fell and Jimmy Morgan had a chance to bite his Up before he spoke without a trace of amusement In his tones Youve Just missed u train to town and there will not bo another for an hour I was Just about to telephone mejthe sun Is coming out Dorothy gripped her empty purse recd murmured I think I hud better Go by automobile I thought youd agree with me interrupted Jimmy smoothly and while Dorothy drew a quick amazed breath ho picked up the telephone transmitter The car was deep in the gloom of time Long Island ferryboat when Dor othy trying to break an eloquent si lence murmured I dont see how 1 ever made n mistake about the date Carleton must have meant for me to with them to Southampton Moth Igo never does catch messages over the myI1iaJ but It Is all right now dear Oh Jimmy please those horrid deck hands Wait Not long dear No only till weare inside our own parlor replied Dorothy In her old mischievous teasing way with the result that Jimmy felt that he really could not wait and what the passing deck hand saw sent him on

liked him and therefore answered promptly YesWill you promise never to tell her that you have selected me as her bus band YesTho conditions of the singular betrothal were observed The girl baby grew up and summer after summer the young man courted her When she was eighteen he married her and not till then did she know that she had beon betrothed to her husband while in her cradle Can old romance

bothered by ants that got Into boxes of seeds which rested on a shelf To get rid of the ants ho put Into execution an old plan which was tft place a meaty bone close by which the ants soon covered deserting the boxer seedsAs as the bone became thickly Inhabited by the little creepers the florist tossed it into a tub of water The ants having been washed off the bone was again put in use as a trap Tho florist bethought himself that he would save trouble by placing the bone In the center of a sheet of fly paper believing that the ants would get caught on the stick fly paper while trying to reach the food But the flor 1st was surprised to find that the ants upon discovering the nature of the pa per trap formed a working force nnd built a path on the paper clear to the boneThe material for the work was sand secured from a little pile near by For hours the ants worked and when the path was completed they made they way over Its dry surface in couples n In a march to the bone Nature A

Mulford maintained that the produco of his acres was sufficient to supply every want of an epicure Once years ago while entertaining a party of barley buyers of the famous Gull ness stout malthouse of Dublin which concern bought the crops of barley raised by Mulford he spread a Mul ford feast There were oysters on the table and clams In the chowder trout from the skillet and shad on the plank the

found that farmers were coming xo the city in large numbers front the same localities rom whence tho army of two weeks ago came They circulated pretty freely the news and thou they other timid people went to Mayor SrBryan and talked so earnestly and so zealously or alarmedly to him of danger of trouble that they Influenced him to prepare a proclamation order ing all saloons closed and providing other means of tfreeervlng the peace The mayor however kept the procla I uiaUuu securely away Iroiu tliuu wuo a k f y- II 1turelythat there was no need whatever for the unusual precautions of it and tho great crowd scattered without anyone getting drunk or being arrested i There was one man who Is proml jnently identified with the farmers organization who did not attend any lot the meetings held but nevertheless lie was using his every effort for a peaceful solution of the critical situa tion which exists in Owensboro and Davless county at the present timeIThe result of tho efforts of this man who does not want his name made pub lie at the present tlmewas the issuing of a statement signed by every tobac co buyer in Owensboro requesting the farmers not to deliver any tobacco in Owensboro before December 16 The announcement that the Honi ft Warehouse Company has sold the 107 crop of tobacco while the craps of 1593 and 1906 are yet unsold seemed to make the Louisville Warehouse Cm pany even more determined In their efforts Now since tho announcement has been mnde that no tobacco will be received before December 16 it Is belIeved that there is n chance of geuliS the different factions together u1 working out a solution of the stunt tion An effort will be mado to come to some kind of an agreement a t meeting of the Green River Dlsrtt Tobacco Growers Association wUcti will
