MAY ESTABLISH A LARGE PLANT And Manufacture Tobacco In Burley Distrct Plan Presented To Fayette Coun ty A S Of E Plant Would Cost 1QOO000 Prof J D Clark secretary of the Fayette county Society of

the Burley district rind that Lexlrcton is the selection for the lo cation Prof Clark says that in the conference the visitor who prefers that his name shall not be known for tho present said If we decldq upon Lexington as a location for the pro pored tfacco manufaiorv we will erect a 1000000 plant anti utilize a large per cent of the white Burley crop in the manufacture of the brands will be put upon the market The plan of the promoters is to terest the leading tobacco growers who are members of the Equity society to take stock in the proposed enter prise If they have not the ready cash an arrangement will be made to exchange their tobacco now in the pool for stock on a cash basis Prof Clark says that the establish merit of Independent tobacco manu r5 1 1 factories in the Burley district will be the natural evolution of tho present situation and that besides the Kentucky capitalists a representative of an eastern syndicatewhich is con sidering Urn advisability of the es

Found Dead On County Road Hopklnsvillc Ky Jan tSThe Body of Seth L Hord a North Chris tiara farmer was found near the side of the road about a mile from this place by his soninlaw Littleton hereIir Hord was sixtyfive years oldan- Is survived by his wife nnd seven children One of hii daughters Mrs Harry Whitney lives in Louisville About fifteen years ago he lost both hands In a sawmill accident c MAINTENANCE OF EARTH ROADS Sunshine And Air Valuable tl water Holding Soil Soil Should be Left At top Of Road As it Naturally Exists We may recognize the value of hari and durable roads in all parts of the country but still the fact remains s that for a long time to come the ma jority of the roads will be composed of earth Futhermore in about nine months out of the year the earth road ifproperly cared for is reason ably satisfactory For many agricul tural districts it is the only road at present available Hence these com munities should set themselves ser- Iously to work to learn the best methods of maintaining earth roads and of getting the maximum service from them Prosperity comes to the country to a great extent through the pros perity of the farmers This fact strong ly suggests the Importance of giving the earth road every possible cart and attention in Its location drainage construction and maintenance An earth road composed of water holding soil should bo exposed io the sun and air as freely as possible as comparison between the shaded and sunny portions of such a road will easily Indicate This should be accomp lished by clearing a sufficient amount of trees and undergrowth away from the road It must be remembered however that sandy and gravcll Y roads require moisture and in these cases some shade should be retained Furthermore trees are beneficial alon river banks and on steep grades sub I ject to washing Drainage is one of the most Im portant points to consider in connec tion with an earth road The majority of earth roads in all mountainous and hilly districts have too much drainage Occasionally a road will be found with five ditches three In the middle made by the horses hoofs and by wheels I of the vehicles and two on the sides All wellconstructed earth roads arc supposed to have no more than two ditches one on each side of the traveled roadway Keep the water out o the middle of the road by giving i a crown or elevation in the center of 7111 inches above the top of the inner slope of the ditch for a20foot road and where the hills are a lttl steep make the crown 10 inches With a crown of about 1 inch to the foot from the center to the sides the ditch es which are o ten built across the road on steep grades to deflect the waterwill not be needed Instead o carrying water across the road in open ditches tile or concrete drains should If possible be provided They should have sufficient capacity and fall to carry the maximum amount of water that is expected to flow through them at any time The capacity is Increased in proportion to the fall or grade for instance 12 inch pipe laid on a one per cent grade will car ry 1800 gallons per minute while the same pipe laid on n2 per cent grade will carry 2500 gallons per minute Furthermore a culvert laid flat will soon fill up while one having a good Incline will keep Itself clear In the maintenance of an earth road ayold the mistake of changing the natural order of things Naturally the soil is found on top and the clay on tho bottom If this order Is reversed in constructing a road the result will be less satisfactory than If the soil be left at the top oftheroadfor soil makes a better surface to a road than clay If the road bed is largely clay to start wlthit will be well to place sandy soil or clean sand on top A covering of 6 to lOlnches of sand upon clay that persists In breaking up In to deep mudholes wUl usually be satisfactory and if sand enough be add ed this clay will cease to make mud If tho roadbed is composed qf and it can be improved by an application of clayThe rule for a serviceable earth road then is as follows Make ditches o reach side and keep them open haul sand and gravel upon sections need ing this treatment use a road machln and a split log drag judiciously a full description of which will be con tamed in a later article follow the stitch In time rule and give an earth road the same careful persistent attention you would give your prize acre factory or store and It will pay as large a profit in proportion to your individual outlay firCA TO ttaBear theheKlni YM Han Atoan Bought Signature 1I1 Ie

al1l11netheydicated When they we never thought to change it The dally press is teeming with be recitals of the loss that various cities would lose by the enactment of a law to drive from the State the tobacco trusts This is only an echo from the trusts themselves Everyone with enough inteligence to be out alone knows that other tobacco buyers would take the places vacated by the trusts In fact the trusts would become honest buyers and dealers and would reth main Granting that someone would suffer loss had not the city folks ash well lose a little in trade as for the farmer to lose It all In the price ofut his tobacco But there would be no loss to anyone The producer would In get a fair price without having to throttle the trust to do it It is announced that an attempt smen to be made to amend the school book law which went into effect about two years ago A slight amendment every few years will be of inestimable ben efit to the book trusts and should by to all means be looked after We recall i the desperate effort of the Beckham glmo to make the book trusts an rltIjunct of the machine at the of the school children Legislators should be slow to tack on anh amendment to existing book

unsupported assertion lha the Governors reference in his message to an incendiary speech made by a lawyer at Elkton in 1905 which Bob says was himself that he Gov Willson is in sympathy with and

Impossible to to perpetrate another such upon the people the and a fair convention he dared no face To steal in a primary is less glaring less easily discovered and less attended by scandal So primary it was and thus the power of the people was embezzled and the fruit of the is the nomination a forged chec upon which he is now trying to collect Mr Bryan has again displayed his Ignorance of the

earlier for the book bears the date mentionedIs particu Early enlightening In these times otI I high prices N During the Revolution the price of food in Philadelphia rose to such a height that a committee was appointed I to see that no serious overcharge or extortion was practiced The prices 4 of food even during and Immediately M after the Civil war never equaled those asked at this remote period To an unprejudiced observer today It does not apear that the committee was Bale to make any serious break in the soaring prices asked at that time For Instance In the spring of 1779 the best Hyson tea was 960 a pound At the same time coffee was 250 a pound which is nearly as alarming The comlttce did however In deference to the demands of the Inhabitants who murmured at the price of butter resolve that If anyl Inhabitant shall give more than for a pound of butter such person shall be summoned to appear at the next town meeting or pay 520 into the hands of the committee to bo Is applied to the relief of the poor IWhlle it does not apear whether these prices applied to specie or to the Continental currency socalled It may be taken for granted that the merchant who refused to part wlht a pound of tea for less than 960 had In mind payment in the Continental notes But in 1807 the Revolution had long been passedand prices were normal Janson speaks in terms of praise of

membership in the history of that body and has on unusually largo injection of new men The Senate which will soon contain ninetytwo members is larger than the house was for come years after the beginning of constitutional Government and it has lost many of Its original characteristics The Senators are no longer Am bassadors from tho States no longerr- are they men whose names are on every tongue It would take an unusually well Informed map some time fo name onethird of the membership The old leaders have almost entirely passed away The veterans are now Allison AldrIch Halo Frye Cullom Teller J id Daniel the two latter being Dem ocrats All the rest have taken their seats scinco 1890 and only twenty all told have served more than to yearsIn the House the veterans are Can non Bingham Payne and Dalzell while Kelfer is back from Ohio after along absence It Is a rare distinc I years1consecutively rans while there are more than 100 absolutely new men It would be a hard task for anyone to name fifty men I who now have seats and perhaps the average person could not mention a score In these days there is les chance for personal distinction thin- formerly The work is largely done in committees and the forensic debate liare seldom exciting Forty years or so ago Congress was largely composed of veterans of the Civil war or men who had come into civil prominence during the conflict MFfe men wero mostly bearded and r full of passion The slightest spark would set off a volcano of excitement I Itho bloody shirt was waived and vitu peration was indulged in with great cheerfulness and in unlimited quantities Visitors to the galleries always asked to have pointed out such men as Blaine Conkllng Butler Stephens Lamar and others who had become prominent In tho Senate were Suinncr Sherman Anthony Burnslde Morrlll drawn andat various times two negroes These men were the leaders r in politics and statesmanship and they have left no successors of their own type Not one of the veterans In either house is a noted speaker Few of them ever talk at all except in explaining j some bill The Senate has become the deliberative body but the eloquence comes from the yonger men from tho praires and the Far West men some of whom were scarcely born forty years ago and tho rest were in knlckerbocjc ors at school Tho changes are notable but the passing away of the ancient regime is not to be lamented There are perhaps fewer intellectual giants fewer foren sic orators than formerly but on the wholeit is a body of able menwho are In Washington for business Tho lobby IItheflulrrb

7 from Chicago says- Remember gentlemen of tho bar an oath means nothing to a man and as Horace hs so truthfully ex pressed it when a woman starts out to perjure herself all hell c4n not keep her record With these words and a few more like them Col James Hamilton Lewis took the breath away from 200 stud teats of tho Northwestern University Law School last night A woman always comes to testify as a witness for one of two reasons he said Either she comes through a sense of affection or duty to those whom she loves or she comes to say what she regards as a perfectly legiti mate feeling of resentment If it i tho first of these she will como through fire and water to testify and she will see things as her friend views them Sincerely and earnestly she will testify that things are as she thinks they ought to be and you may cross examine until you have exhausted the vocabulary and you will get nothing from her Ideas of what they ought to be A woman has no idea of the sanc tltyot oath and a woman will repeat when on oath anything which she will say when not on oath If she comes as your witness Im pelled by a feeling of resentment be careful not to let her tell why she came Get your main point out of her as expeditiously as possible and let her go PO not branch off into collate ral matters or she will take the first opportunity to vindicate herself for appearing by telling the grudge she has against the defendant On the ot el4t hand If you are cross examining her be careful not to let state the grievance that has brought her in as a wltneess against your client unless you are sure of what it lsfor no matter what a woman does It It be an act Impelled by natural and legitimate affectionthe world will ever forgive her 0 Queer Will New York Jan 13 Priding himself on his
