of the 1906 legislature giving the right to to lcco growers to pool their crops Judge Jobn 4D Carroll of the Court of Appeals down an opinion declaring tho act valid under tho constitution The whole court except Chief Justice ORear who was absentheard the case and concurred in the opinion In dls cussing the act the court said in part The act of 1906 does not authors or permit a pool or combination to enhance the cost of crops above their real value This is not tho proper con strucUon and if It allowed owners to place the price of crops above theiri real value it would clearly be a vlolt tion of the Constitution- In giving to the act this constltv- tlonality the prevailing conditions that rise to its enactment may with muc propriety be considered The fat he Stat separaIjpose of their crops a sonable price There was practically no competition among the purchasers of the crops A combination and v trust had been formed by the buyer to depreciate the value of the crops below their real value and slnglehani ed the producers were unable to com bat or deal in terms of equality wit these trusts and cambinations thnt controlled the markets in which the i1armer was obliged to dispose of his produce To melt the condition of nl fairs thus presentedand to enabltf the farmers to combine their resource and place their products in the hand of an agent selected by them to thee d that better prices might bu obtained this act was passed If undo this act the farmers associated with defendant were combining and poplin their crops for the purpose of obtain Jng for them a greater price than the real valueand It should be judicially de termined that this was true the con in judgmen rleffectmember of the society or orangizatioi It could not for a moment be tallied that a contract entered IntoI for the purpose of enhancing the pried of an article above its real value would be authorized by the act of 190 nor would the Legislature have the power to pass an act that would enable or permit persons or classes of persons to do things that are contrary n to public policy and that have always f act with the severest condemnation of the courts I entertain no doubt that the act ol 1900 considered alone and with refer ance to the questions raised by the de- Pendant is a valid exercise under the Constitution of this State or of the United States and as the record does not show that the plaintiff society Is attempting to enhance th6 price ol the Constitution of the State or of the real value the motion to dlsolve the injunction must be overruled The DampingProcess

4Have a Cigarette is Almost as Common as Have a Cup of Tea Is it ladylike to smoke cigarettes asks a Washington dispatch This question is suggested by the growing custom of women of the smart set at the national capital who approve cigarette smoking and who have ad ojited the cigarette as an inseparable accompaniment of their social en tertalnments for women exclusively The extent to which the cigarette Ihablt has crept into high social cir cles at Washington Is Indeed surpri sing Many hostesses who figure in naItlonaltips after the refreshments have been served at every afternoon function

said she I noticed that womene smoked during the dinner hour in the best of hotels of LondonIn foctthis practice seemed to bo quite usual Ten years ago one never saw n woman smoke publicly in the London hotels so I judge from this that the fashion must be spreading From my observation it seemed that smoking among women had become quite a vogue inever observed smok- Ing among members of a royalty al though they may do so In private While I attended many houseparties I seldom saw ladles smoke I do not think the Queen adheres to this fash lion During many weeks spent at The Hague I saw no women smoke The fashion evidently is not followed there Whilst most of theolder women of Mexico and Russia smoke it Is mere ly nmatter of education with them theseIcounties a growing tendency among

crime ridden town without attaching too much suspicion to any clique Finally Marcum was assassinated just as ho had predicted a score of times ho would be For printing these predictions several newspapers were sued and indicted for criminal libel but the cases never went to trial Thti whole world now knows how Marcum had delayed the mo ment of his assassination by carry ing his baby in his

CAUSE OF TOBACCO TROUBLE And the only Sure Crue For It Trusts Eliminated all Local Buy ers Then Run Things- NighHanded About all the talk in this part of the State is tho tobacco sllttlluonlnight riders etc I know many readers of l tho Farm er do not know the cause of nil this trouble aid disgrace to the State so I will try and explain it Kentucky products about onethird of tho tobacco of the US Out of a production of Sir000000 pounds in 1903 Kentucky produced 170000000 pounds A very large per cent of this is produced by renters and umiill producers who depend on it mainly for a money crop About 100000 acres planted is distributed among about 2 i 000 farms so yuo see that there aro a great many mil directly interested in iis production and when its destruc Bon is threatened it is like disturb ing a hive of bees for Kentucklans like bees are always ready to defend their houses regardless of results Up lo a few years back till when the tobacco trust was formed everything moved along serenely Supply and demand governed prices till then Some years them would be an over production and prices would go low then farmers would plant less or weather conditions would intervene and prices would go up That was all taken good humored and no disturbance was ralsedthough many a time I know that renters and hill farmers were pressed to the walli In those days tho tobacco wits bought up by the local speculators and farm ers Theru was abuying and reedy ing house in every neighborhood Com mission houses In Louisville would furnish any reliable man money to buy tobacco hence there was a great many buyers and competition was strong Tobacco would bring all that it was absolutely worth and sometimes more When the trust took holdln about 1900 this procedure was all changed They stopped the buying by local spec ulators and farmers and refusing to buy the tobacco on the market at Louisville except at ruinous prices to the buyers Hundreds of farmers who were local buyers lost everything they had I know many pitiable caseswhero honest speculators and farmers lost their houses and farms by this mon ster Trust After the trust got all local buy ers out of the way then they estab lished buyots at such points as suil ed them and paid them Many farm ers had to haul their tobacco thirty miles over bad roads to get one and three or four cents for it For several years the price did not average over threo cants in this country To you that do not know I will say that it cost 5 cents per pound to produce tobac coso you see the condition to which these poor farmers were reduced Can anyone wonder that it produced anarchy especially among a class that did not know hoar else to proceed They are honestly convinced that they are defending theri homes and families Of

official circles of Wash ington were stirred this morning when the tragic ending of James Hargis was made known by the newspapers His name had become so familiar In the deeds of blood and violence In Kentucky that It had gained a na tional notoriety There was but one opinion here among the many that was the man of such a bloody record would sooner or later die with his boots on- There was no other fate for him In the end all conceded But that he would bo murdered by his own flesh and bloodhls only son was a distinct shock to all The Washington press of today gave full report of the hor rible tragedy The Star says editor iallysTruthagaln is stranger and more startling than fiction Had a novel ist or dramatist brought such a char acter to such an end as Judge Hargis met yesterday he would have been accused of exaggeration It would have ben Insisted that the greater the hatred of the outside world the neare the characters own flesh and blood would have drawn to him Tho great Dramatist ordered It differently at Jackson The man of blood was punished by his own son That Judge Hargis would die by vio lence probably nobody doubted It was the most reasonable of expecta tions The only points open for dis cussion were when and how He him self knew there must be a bullet mould ed for him Ho had the feudists philosophy and had made his arrangements to go Uy ordering his coffin he concluded that the day was prob ablv close at handIThere was a barbarians torch too in tho price An everyday coffin was not to his liking He was not anI everyday man and as he felt should be put away In something rich and unusual Bother the cot Was he not rich Could ho not af ford it When the day cattle should not the people of Jackson have are minder in every feature of the cere mony that their leader was no more What other man In the community was worthy of a coffin so expensive That feature alono would help preserve his memory The patricide is not beyond explana tion Ho Is only twentyone and has been reared on blood All his life he has heard the family name asso elated with feuds and assassinations He must have been even at school dreaded a little himself As a Hargis there was a stain upon him even in a community where his father was the boss Growing up thus with heredity playing its part It is only necessary for him to reach then age or red 11 puor which is very red in Its effect

position Kentucky holds among her sister oMstat s regarding her public schools upon tho reason why she so k stands says G MMouey Supt of schools for Shelby county I believe y that the patriotism of Kcntucklans would be so aroused that they would soon banish forever this stinging dlsC grace of illiteracy which hangs as a blighting cloud over our future prosa perity and glpryCBy indulging In a little comparison We find the following facts Kentucky spends about 2 34 million dolc lars on her schools annually r Illinois of 21 million Massachusetts 1612 million Indiana Minnesota Missouri and California each from S to 10 mlla lionsnThis is equal to about 350 per child in Kentucky based upon the average attendance about 42 per child in California and Massachusetts and in the other states named from 21 to 3 per child The average child in Kentucky gets about 70 days of schooling per year whllethe other states gives from 100 days in some to 146 days In Massachusetts b What are the results obtained In entucky 143 per cent of her native born white male adults are Illiterates while in the other States named it ranges from 44 per cent down to 1 per MassachusettsJA futher analysis of this comparison v gives what I tiling is the secret of these results and conditions andl I that is their dependence in a largo measure upon that local nterest that generally comes with local aid a Local means in Kentucky furnishes moneyII cent in Illinois and Missouri 87 per cent while In the other nameds it furnishes from 53 to 70 per centII But some say these other states are richer and better able to educate their children thus In answer I will say that further comparison shows that for every 100 of property value in Kentucky her schools get 18 cents while in Massachusetts her schools get 30 cents and in the other states they get from 20 to 25 cents So relative IIy we are not up with the procession These states seem to have discovered that educatlon pays in dollars and I cents that it is tar better to lay up in their song and daughters than for them and if they have not learned that one days schooling has a values of UO they have learned that the tlmea and money put into the educa ted brains of a boy is equal to an in vested capital of ten or fifteen thousand dollars Dr Hill Secretary of the Massa chusetts State Board of Education says The wage earning power att the people of Massachusts is 275 mil lion dollars a year over the average wage earning power of an equal number of people elsewhere in the Unit ed States For this added income the state spent 13 of 14

All Other Legis lation Depends 1N A STRUGGLE TO THE DEATH Frankfort Ky Feb 11To an unbiased spectator it looks very much like the senatorial race and the county unit local option hilt have come to gether in a struggle to the death In I other words if the bill passes the legislature the chances are that the senatorlal deadlock will not be broken If the bill is defeated It may mean that someone will lie elected Everything Is now being made pu eorvlent to the local option measure It Is the sun around which all the I i j I I I I WILLIAM O DRADLEYIsmaller planets are n Is practically States senator will not bo elected un tll the county unit bill is disposed o ono way or the other for the reason that the few legislators that are will tog to sacrifice everything to help the whisky Interests will not change their votes In the senatorial race until the fate of the county unit measure is set tied It Is believed hero that If the senatorial race was out of the way this legislature would pass a most stringent temperanco law and provide for a vote by the people on an amend ment to the constitution so that a vote on state prohibition might be had three years from now It Is a prett fight and the result Is in doubt Senator Newman of Woodford count ty says that much dishonesty has grown up In the matter of giving shortI weights in packages or sacks of flour end meal He introduced a bill In the senate some days ago to prevent this fraudulent practice and the senate passed it almost unanlnfously The bill provides that every package o sack of flour or meal hall have tho correct weight of the package or sack printed on It In letters and figures large enough to bo easily read and a i penalty Is fixed for the violation of tho provisions of the law It was stated In the debate on the bill that In many instances a sack of flour or meal purporting t to contain twentyfour pounds really contained but nineteen yet the purchaser paid for twenty four pounds Every housekeeper In tho state who looks after her everyday purchases antd r 1 protecting them in this matter l4 It is tho general belief that too few Jegal Hangings have been had in Ken t Lucky in the past twenty years but

put them on the same footing as railroad companies as far as regulating rates charIexpress companies but for some reason It was smothered although its author Senator George made a des perate effort to get It voted on There has been much complaint as to the high and arbitrary rates charged by express companies for years and ac cording to the general expression of opinion the rates are getting hlghe- and tho companies less considerate o the rights of the public every year The fight in the present legislature bulltd ty making good progress as the IIoswarth Wyatt bill has already ed the senate This bill provides forItaking a vote of the people on question of amending the constitution so that state aid may be given to the counties for road purposes and furthe- provide r that any county mdy take vote of the people as to levying a spe slat road tax which shall not in any instance exceed 5 per cent of the tax able value of all the property in the county The mountain counties are proposlygiven the opportunity will vote almost solidly for such an amendment to tho constitution Some of the senators were afraid the counties might vote too largo a debt on them selves and then have to repudiate

be Investigated The co- missloners report showed that for the past twelve years the amount paid to special examiners and their expenses amounted to about 23000 and of this amount about 18000 had been
