your proposition t Vile buyers say that smother pro position from the American Society of Equity officials was presented to them a few weeks ago This also went without signatures The tobacco buyers were called to meet at the residence of Frank Birk and the proposition was read to them by him with tho statement that It was submitted by S B Lee National Secretary of the American Society of Equity Department of Tobacco Growers The prop osition was simply that the buyers i agree not to pay In excess of 6 6 r and 2 for any American Society of Equity tobacco of thel 1U07 crop thltI might be offered to them The buyI ers complain that both of these propositions are entirely onesided tho American Society of Equity agreeing to do nothing and asking everything buyersJ that the buyI era agree not to receive any tobacco the buyers cite the fact that it was agreed by the American Socie ty of Equity that no pledge should be binding unless the total quantity pledged should amount to 80 per cent of the 1907 crop The buyers say that they do not believe anything like SO per cent of the crop was pledged and that therefore the pledges are not legally or otherwise bring on those who signed

Monday Nightbut Relia ble People Deny It Tuesdays Owensboro Inquirer says A mysterious looking and acting man was In the city today telling a big story about his being threatened by night riders at his homo near Fordsville and of his having a bunch of switches left at his home He said he had a crop of about 2000 pounds of tobacco which ho had refused to pool and he was in fear of the awful things that might happen to him through the Interference of the night riders He said they visited Fords ville on Monday night and passed through the principle streets making much noise and firingtheir guns in every direction and greatly frighten lug every one but killing no one He refused to give his name saying he was afraid to have his name pub lished Ho seemed to be sane and was apparently telling the truth However tho Inquirer took precaution to call up responsible people at Fordsville by telephone and then It was learned that there was no truth whatever in tho story Fordsville men said no night riders or boisterous people had been there Monday night or recently and that their coming was not feared There are evidently several persons around the city for evil purposes One of these was very talkative In a certain restaurant on Monday and his talk was 3uch that one who was near suspected that ho was a veritable night rider from Trigg or other black patch place nnd went out to notify the police so that he might be put under proper surveillance He soon changed his location and has not been heard of since Dr A D James Called to Bedside of Daughter Dr A D James Congressman

Complete ly Exhausted Which Took Several Hours Severing the arteries in his left arm and left temple with a piece of old tin and patiently holding the wounds open while his life blood trickled away was tho mode of exit from a troubled world taken Monday morning by Wallace W Benson twentyfour years old and a resi dent of Baskett Henderson county The scene of the tragedy was a room In the Union Hotel at Owensboro It was played almost to the last cur tain in complete solitude Benson be ing alone in his room and other per sons about the hotel in complete ignorance of the fact that hewasslowly committing self murder When they finally became aware of tho fact they found a mere spark of life clinging to a bloodless body the walls the furniture and the bed clothing all bespattered with blood and nearly three gallons of the vital fluid filling a jar that sat by tho bedside The love of a womana woman who did notr espond to hisI wooing is thought to be the For thirtysix hours before maltI ing the fatal strokes which must have been made shortly after 5 oclock I Monday morning Benson had stayed I in his room without a mouthful of food or oven a swallow of water BenI- son went to Owensboro last and immediately registered at the Union Hotel and at every meal hour until Monday morning waiters called at his room and inquired If he wanted hismeals Atnine oclock one of the waiters noticed blood splashes about tho room and hastily called Henry Greer one of the proprietors who upon reaching the door of the room called Dawson The two entered the room and asked Benson how ho hud hurt himself He replied that he cut l his mouth on tho pitcher It was ap parent that he had notbeen bleeding j from the mouth and an examination revealed the wounds one in the tem ple and the other In the arm They had ceaso to bleed imd the body was apparently perfectly bloodless Drs Watkins and Stephens were hurriedly called but It was impos sible to restore the man and death i came shortly after 12 oclock I W1111Dawson la thermometer which had been par tlally torn to pelces He said to Benson You cut yourself with this I Benson laughed Yes he said I cut myself with that These vero tho last words he spoke He had pryiously told Dr Watkins that he did not knov why he cut himself Tho following note was found in the room addressed evidently to Wells and Keach Goodby Dick and Harry There is no one to blame but myself I dont want anyone to grieve after me becaus I am better off dead I want tho cheap est funeral possible W W B I was completely sober when I did this I have been In this

agreed advance on pooled tobacco early Monday morning the first day the doors of the pooling house here was opened a big run was made and has continued every day since Tho failure of the cmomlttee to have time money is due solely to the recent money stringency The Louisville Warehouse Is nuder contract to fur nish it as soon as it can be had It is thought that the money will be forthcoming not later than January 15 Mr Ford the grader will Issue a warehouse receipt which the banks if they have the money to spare will cash but if not It will be only a few weeks at most until the Louisville Tobacco Warehouse Cowill have plenty of money to supply the committee with which to pay tho advance and pay for the receipts In the meantime thoso who pool can rest assured that their receipts are as good as gold It will bo remembered that the trust buyers are paying only 20 per cent of tho value of tobacco delivered to them in cash and for the balance is sue a draught or receipt that is good but no better an cannot be cashed any sooner than time warehouse receipt issued by the pooling houses It has been announced on good au thority In fact it Is absolutely certain that all the balance of the 1005 tobac co has been sold at 11 per hundred Settlement for this will be made us soon as the company that bought it can get the money to pay for it So thero can be no further apprehension along this line With the 1905 out of time way the 1900 is all that Is In tho way of the 1907 and the fact that the 1907 will not be ready to sell until next fall puts tobacco growers in excellent shapo to finally win out along the lines being aid down J w Does YourtHot Water Bottle Leak You never can tell when a Hot Water Bottle is going to make trouble by springing a leakHot Water Bottles are apt to

CONFERENCE Meeting to Settle Tobacco o War to Be Held j Equities Independents and Trust Representatives Invited to Attend Frankfort Ky Dae 13Aftera conference lasting practiclly all day with a delegation of cltlzerisfrom Hop Cynrjcan Society of Equity Gov A E Wilson last night gave out a statement regarding the situation in the tobacco belt and calling for a conference be twen the representatives of the various tobacco societies the American tobacco company and the independent buyers of the state to be held at the governors office on Dececember 20 and 21- Gov Willson Is giving most careful attention to the situation produced by the tobacco troubles in Kentucky those in the dark belt as well as in the Burley districts It is recongized that there must be some genuine cause at the bottom of these troubles which when dlscoverd and the proper rem edy applied will disappear whereup on the troubles will also cease The Kentucky farmer essentially a man of peace ho is also a man of sense Ina great majority of cases indeed almost universally they are pood cit izens It is bellved that a great deal of the present difficulty grows out of the mutual misundcrstaning of the purpose of the antagonistic interests socalled The situation upon its merits assuming that each side wantso to do right and wants nothing more than the right is one of practial so lution upon plain business principles 41Indeed it is more a business problem 1 I than one of political economy The governor does not hesitate to express his condemnation of all acts of volence and of every resort to co ercion and opposition by whomsoever practiced He does not believe that that js the way to settle snch differ ence nor does he believe that such practices repersent to any material L extent the judgment or the purpose of the Interests Involved There will te no temporizing with lawlessness nor with oppression upon the other hand i in any form The governor believes t that the statute lows of the state are I t ample to afford protection against any grievances that may exist upon the one side or the other If a pool or combinations of tobacco buyers hasbeen formed it is not only amenable to the laws of this state but can be quickly and promptly pun- Ished and remedied by those officials whose duty it is primarily to take charge of such transactions On tho other hand confederations of men to j intimidate to alarm er to injure perso j or to destroy property are not only highly antisocial but are punishable I severely under the statute laws of the state I The following people and any other officers of tobacco organizations in dependent tobacco concerns and rep resentative buyers are Invited to at tend at the governors office December I 20and 21 ant the governor will be I glad to have suggestions of any bther I names of men representing buyers generally whose attendance would be useful to get a true and practlal know ledge of the facts C M Barnett presidentI Society of Equity

Public That He Has No Fear of Trouble Now Nor TimeI x ITo the Public For fear that my resignation might bo Interpreted as meaning that I feared trouble might come to this county and resigned the office of President thereby hoping be out of that position before any trouble might como I will say that such Is not the case and that such was not the cause of my action I realized that If my resignation was made public at this time that sour might feel aprehenslve In regard t the peace of this cuonty and for such a reason I did not wish it to be made public but as my resignation has leaked out I feel that I ought to give the public my reasons If you will remember I accepted the oflce of President with great reluctance vainly hoping that I might by some method unite the Equity into one body with one desire only joined hands with my brother farm ers who had taken up what I thought was my fight and as I thought lit was my fight I ought to give my little help to my own cause I thought then that Equity was a great movement and I still think so and that every farmer should realize that their Interests were our comon Interests I used every persuasion and arangement that I could think of to get my brother farmers- to think as I did but I found it the same old story many men of many mindsTo go back my every effort was to try to keep peace in our own0 rank and to try to get the outsider- to join us ever using peaceful plead- Ing and never once can I be accused of using harsh language to any one or of making threats direct or indirect I offered every plan that my mind could conceive to unite all people But alas I failed Then on the day that there was a crowd in town on November day when it looked like the two factions were shaklng their fists at each other I was trying to and did get the buyers to accede to n request not to receive tobacco until December 16 hoping In the meantime to get the various counties together and to get them toconsent to sell the 1907 crop front the wagon a plan that I fondly hoped would be the means of uniting the socalled dumper Home and Louisville warehouse people In one body which plan If carried out would have had the effect of Immediately putting at j an end forever any thoughts of trouble but it seemed that 1 again was doomed to disappointment- I had now exhausted my resources and have no hope of being able acomplish any thing In the future for the good Of the cause of Equity and appreciating that my still en cumbering the presidency might some one else more capable than myself from solving the problem I gave my resignation to that end I want to assure you with all honesty bf which my nature Is that Heel that we will not now nor at any time be confronted with the deplorable condltons of the Clarksville

manner has expressed hImself tasbeing willing to stand pat on the I Tariff The Senator has always been a Protectionist but he has become a more pronounced one since viewing the wonderful activities and the vast enterprises of the Kanawha Valley and the region bordering on the Old Dominion which have been fostered and quickened under the McKinley and Dingley Tariff laws In his trav els Senator Scott has seen nothing but prosperity that has resulted from sections which not so many years ago were barren of population The ifjunior Senator of West Virginia be lieves that nothing would be more disastrous to his State than a revision of the Tariff schedules at this timeSenator Scott is a man of very con serv live Judgment in business mat tars He is not only the head of a large banking corporation in Wheel Ing but Interested in many manufac turing concerns He is a practical business man and knows what he is talking about when he says that i any disturbance of present conditions I by dalliance with the Tariff schedules would be a mustard plaster misap plied West Virginia has always bee counted as solid for President Roose volt and his policlesand naturally theI Republicans of that State were ed as willing to accept Secretary Taft Lately however there has been a feeling of unrest and a swinging toward a strong Tariff candidate consequently Senator Knoxs candidacy has become more attractive to them I because of the proplniquity of Penn I sylvania and West Virginia and above all other considerations the State61whichgrandly in the prosperity procession I of the country Pittsburgh Gazette Times i THE TOBACCO SITUATION i We have watched with profound In terest the plans employed and effortsI made by the tobacco growers Green River District to control the marketing of tobacco so that a fair I xi price might be obtained therefor That the price of tobacco is higher by far than it was three years ago cannotI t be denied That the price I e advanced as a direct result of the operatingapretty should not the growers continue their t efforts with more perfect organiza tion In handling the 1907 crop than ever before I cTheword comes from many sec tions of the district that many peo ip ple who have for the past two years pooled their tobacco and who this year pledged it are selling outside the pool It would be much better and more satisfactory for the growers if they d could sell their tobacco to local buy ers at a good living price But where 1isthe man who has not sufficient fore to enable him to see that It ti would only be but a very short time it until the same pitiful condition that 3 obtained before the Inauguration f E fppoUngwould exist The buyers would not even come to look at your tobac r f co The writer knows this from ex perlence He has had three crops of tobacco In the barn at one time and could not bany sort of persuasi Induce a buyer to come and look at It with a view of purchasing 1U How many others have met like fate PrOb ably not so many but we haeall met the fate of 4 3 S250 2 150 want to return to thisiWe may feel somewhat chagrin because some tobacco has not yet been sold or that what has been sold did not bring what we expected it to or that the expense was more thane thought it should have been It It would be good If our pooled taI bacco could all be sold as soon as it Is ready It would be very nice 1C it would bring all we wanted It to It would be delightful if there were no expense at all in handling storing and selling But isnt pooling much better than the old plan even if we never get anything except what is ad vanced when delivered at the facta ry In other words Isnt two 5s and 2 better than two 3s and 50 cents As we see it these are vital questions to every man who raises tobacco The writers experience as beforo stated teaches him that three crops in the pool at one time with two 5s annd 2 advanced and a prospect for more Is better than three crops In the barn at one time with no posisbl

Kentucky which ought to bring the blush of shame the face of every true Kentuckian le told how he had robbed a poor woman of her three children in som mountain county There were two ittle boys and a girl The mothe vas found cutting fire wood the lit tle boys playing about her while the girl ten years old was hunting chestnuts When the mother found that the officers were going to take her children away true to her motherl nterests she showed fight a thing which the cowardly officer did not want He then resorted to strategy saving the mother and boys he went In search of the little girl Finding her he look her to the carriage on n hill in sight of the mother and placed her in charge of an attendant When the mother saw the daughter In captivity she ran to rescue her and then her boys were captured bI two stalwart men The faithful mother ran after her children for thre odes until completely exhaustedsh fell by the roadsideIThis institution is given 15000 a ear from the State Treasury It Is upported by youMr Tax payer am et each county Is asked to contribute to its support Every Sunday schoo In the State is drummed annually for Its use An individual canvass is alsoI aadtf to help what they term a charitable cause It is not an orphans home The children are merely detained at Louisville until a home can be secured for them It furnishes a job for a number of gentlemen who ouglv to be at work cutting fire wood as the poor woman was doing when rob bed of her offspring as recorded In the article mentioned When these children are separates rom their parents they are never IIagain permitted to know or hear of This is worse than the prac Ices of slavery Besides who know but that the jump from a home of poverty to the home of some rich ereon may not mean a home of vice and conditions far worse for the chili than those from which the socallet escue was made These people get no more of our money with which to separate mother and babe It is a rime for which the great State of Kentucky should be thoroughly asham ed Let these children who have no parents or whose parents are unable to give the support be sent ic some one of the many orphans homos In Kentuckyand thenlt the parent should be able later to secure them the may do so This socalled chil rens home society which Is begging thousands of dollars from our citizens annually is a disgrace to heath nlsni These people have no home for children It is merely a place of detention in Louisville where the children are kept until they can negotiate a home for them and they are to be the sole judges of Its moral atmosphere and sensibility to th- echUdTheremay beR few cases In which they can render some ser Ice to humanity as when bout par enla are dead and no near relatives are left for this the 15000

from the negligence oL the company And not only that but I am also willing to give a specific illustration- I was standing one day on the plat form of a blast furnace All at once unexpectedly I

nobody would profit by my demise But oh servo what tbe other mon around that blast furnace did I could see them as I peered out from behind my brick pillar Those of them who were already in front of

PRESSURE The Determination of Its Relation to Mental States In addition to tboso bodily movements which are called voluntary various bodily phenomena which are clearly Involuntary accompany violent mental excitement The blush of shame the distinctive flushes of joy and of auger the pallor and sweat of fear the tears of grief and the creep- Ing of the flesh provoked by horror are familiar examples The respira tion Is quickened by joy and retarded by anxiety and tbe feeling of relief finds expression in a deep sigh Vie lent emotions often disturb the diges tion The heart bounds with Joy is paralyzed by horror leaps to the throat In terror The connection be tween the heart and the emotions Is so Intimate that the heart was long re carped as the seat of the soul Most of these Involuntary physical concomitants of mental excitement are brought about by a special part of the nervous system the sympathetic nerve and its branches which ramify to every part of tbe body The best known branches are those that govern the dilatation of the blood vessels which are profoundly affected by mental states These phenomena are susceptl ble of exact quantitative determination by means of a method devised by the Italian physiologist Mosso The result Is fairly accurate measurement of the variation of blood supply In the brain The subject Is laid on a board which Is balanced on a fulcrum at the center of gravity When the subject is quiet und undisturbed the board lies horizon tal Now If an unpleasant sensation or emotion Is Induced In the subject his head is Involuntarily elevated in dicating diminution In the quantity of blood in the brain An agreeably sen sation of emotion produces the opposite effect Scientific American Queer It was with great difficulty that Professor Hubert
