and for I ever It Is tho most Important be cause ho and his friends believe it will settle tho most momentous ques lion In Kentucky it is unique be foer corporations that attempt to depres- the value

Justice centslSenatorthe bill was formerly chief JusticeI of tho Kentucky court of appeals and ho Is willing to water his last ccntj that his bill as drawn will stand the test supremo court of tho

there Iis now no statutory provision for bidding pools and trusts or other combinations to enhance or deprel elate tho price of any Article and the various prosecutions instituted In the state of Kentucky against the Ameri i can Tobacco company and other com bines to depress the price of an article of commerce have no legal foundation and will have to go by the boardI To meet the condition the new actI which I introduce has been prepared In strict conformity with tho constitution relating to trusts This bill will not affect the validity of the far mers pooling act as tho construction giving that act Is that It Is only an act to secure the real value of farmingI products With the enactment act just Introduced one punishing theI trust for conspiring to depress tho value of an article below Its real value and the other authorizing tho farmers to secure the real value of the pro duct this would seem to be all the law required on tho question of pooling either by the buyer or seller Not only does the act provide that tho maximum fine may be 100000 but it contains a provision to punish the general agent or his subordinate by confinement In the county jail from six to twelve months If found guilty of being employed by a trust endeavoring to depresp the value of an arctlclo below Its real value It also provides that all contracts made In violation of this act are void and

ii FLATFflOTEB I FOR FAIRBANKS so Declares Marshal Geo W Long t Preferred Indianian to McKinley in 1900Just What His Po sition is While the attitude of all the Federal officeholders in regard to the next Republican nominee for President has not been made clear there Is no mistaking the position of United States Marshal George W Long who comes out flatfooted for Charles Warren Fairbanks against William H Taft and President Roosevelt The card of Marshal Long whIch follows makes i rfectly clear his position with reference to the Repub lican nominee for President- I have always preferred to suffer personally from newspaper mlsinsorra oration rather than rush into print to mislead my friends or Injure other parties a correction Is but an act of justiceiFor many mouths I have been ad vertised in newspaper articles as at active worker and political organizer in Kentucky for the Vice President In his candidacy for the Republican nominee for tho presidency and have beer classed among the alleged enemies of the President and his policies On the other hand certain Democratic papers In the country In an effort to show that there IB a Federal machine how catalogued me and other Federal officeholders as organizing nation of the Secretary have said to me that they were sorry on your my account that I was not for Mr Taft and one who seeks to be a delegate to the na tional convention has notified me that when William Howai Taft is President we will want your place On the oth er hand supporters of the Vice Presi dent have Eouiplalacd of my inactivity in his interest A newspaper has gon beyond the bounds of propriety inad vertently I hope and has insisted in its tJItorlal columns that convention I will see a great lightI7ae hrase needs no analysis to ciu its meaning though tuv it does not apply to me Were men have no special inter and besIIcduiuuual for them to change to another to oblige a friend or to be with I the majority Any man acting from proper motives may do this without moral turptltude But every man must be the keeper of his own conscience in these matters At the Chicago convention in 1904 II called on Mr Fairbanks and personally assured him of my wish that he shoul take up the reins of Government when they were surrounderred by Mr Roose velt My reasons for expressing this desire were largely sentimental but the sentiment had back of it a cause which then as now appeals to me stronger than anything vise in this world affecting politics Indiana as a State and the people of Indiana with little regard to political dlfferenc have stood by Goy Taylor since his flight from Kentucky to avoid the partisan frenzy which followed the as sassination of Senator Gotbel by an irresponsible crank Soon after his flight to Indiana Mrs Taylor died I went to her funeral and found at the house of mourning Senator and Mrs Fairbanks and ministering unto the con80llngI husband and motherless restIlng andembleml political forces of the Republican par GOjalorwere elected In the offices which were taken from them without reason by a partisan Democratic Legislature and board I know they did not conspire to have Senator Goebd assassinated Justice lo them Is above every other political consideration with me and protection to them from the frenziedI assaults of partisan hate assaults of partisan hate appeals to mo with almost as much force as if tho service were personal to me Mr I Roosevelt then Governor of New York sent to Gov Taylor in the midst of hi troubles a telegram of sympathy and assurance and there Is nothing which I could do for him personally that would not be gladly done As an evidence of my devotion to him I will say that in 1900 as a delegate to tho National Convention I announced I my purpose to support him for the presidency over that great and good- man I William McKInley should an organization for that purpose be underI taken by a national leader In 1904 I I announced early as a candidate for delegate from tho Stat ntlargo on a platform favoring the nomination of Mr Roosevelt and gladly cast niy vote for him in the Chicago convention In the spring of 190G 1 wrote him a personal letter giving reasons why I thought he ought to be nominated Cora second elective term and urging him to leave himself In the hands of the people who had given him a plurality of more than two and a half millions- In 1904 As a member ofthe Committee on Resolutions in the last State Convention I stated that I was fo a plank indorsing his administration and his policies inns strong terms as it could be written and I standby that statement now and were I a delegate to the coming National Convention should insist that the In dorsement of his administration and policies must be broad emphatic and nequivocal If I have read the report of cur rent events right Mr Fairbanks both as Senator and as Vice President has stood loyally by the President has aided In carrying forward his policies and has commended the President and his policies in all of his political ad dresses I do not believe that then Is any justification in denominating Mr Fairbanks as a reactionary and and do not believe it fair to him to cast that imputation upon him merely for the purpose of aiding the candl dac of another Unquestionably most of the men opposed to the President will oppose the man he favors for President but it does not follow and Is not as a matter of fact true that all men woo favor a candidate other than MrTaft are opposed to the President or his policies G W LONG eTHAWS PLAN 20000 ANNUITY TO EVELYN GirlWife Agrees to

barbaric society the wedding cere areras an Amerclan beauty rose to a bunch of chickweed No wonder ob serves the Boston Globe brides and grooms are eager to rehearse It carefully so as not to mar Its enchanting loveliness The Parsee groom must go with a band to tho brides house first having sent ahead presents of considerable value varying according to his flnaI clal condition At the threshold future motherinlaw meets him withI a smile and a dish of fruits which she scatters at his feet Then the bride comes forth and she and the groom are led into a room where their hands are tied together with a silken cord As the ceremony proceeds tho cords are passed around spliced When at length they are re leased they are permitted to throw their bodies until they itm literally rice at each other Tho victor in the ricethrowing contest is supposed to be the one who shall boss the home nest Then both are pelted with rice and showered with rose water In Java bride and groom are rubbed with the ashes of the red dag bones while in Transylvania gypsy bridal couples are rubbed with a weasel skin In Thlbet tho brides parents put home made butter on the head of their fu ture soninlaw whllo in certain parts of Wales the father rides away on horseback with his daughter pursued by the groom but like a true par ent he allows himself to be overtaken In Syria the bride and her par ents ride to the home of the groom The latter come out to great hlswife tobe The parents no doubt wishing to conceal their eagerness to get rid of their daughter make a show of resistance Firearms are discharged but the cartridges are blank and consequently no one is hurt and the pretendlugtobereluctant bride finally yields to her lovers entreaties as the eighteenth century novelist would say In Bengal it was once time rule to marry bride and groom first to trees and indeed the custom is not yet whol ly extinct The bride was led up to a mahwa tree In her hand she held some red lead with which she smear ed the bark and then clasped the trunk In fond embrace This done the at tendants lashed her as tightly to the tree as ever Farragut was to the mast at Hartford It was tho bridegrooms turn next But Instead of splicing him to tie mahwa they spliced him to the mango tree appropriately enough if one considers the spelling pf the namo of these arboreal spouse How long thev were kept In that position too historian does not say but goes on to tell how in ancient Mexico the garment of bride and groom were tied together in a huge knot Then the ccuiplo were marched ten times around a fire Into which they throw InccnEo After the ceremony was concluded they fasted four days Among certain Siberians the bridegroom is not permltttd to have a wife until he can catch her But they do not give him a fair race in tho open The bride surrounded by her female friends awaits him in a big tent As soon as she sees him she starts to run He follows like HIppomenes af ter Atalanta But instead of obstac lea being thrown in the way of the bride they are thrown across the path of the bridegroom Usually the spectacles Is like of an elephant run ning an obstacle race against an au tomobile on a clear track The pursu- Ing groom falls over old women chuira tables stones and fishing rods or Is tripped up by ropes or vines Only when It Is feared ho might give up and sulk and go away without the fleeting lady Is ho permitted to over take her Then as sho falls Into his outstretched arms It may bo imagin ed sho utters some equivalent of This Is so sudden As a show this Siberian wedding ceremony must bo as entertaining as vaudeville to the spectators but to carry it out well more than one re hearsal might be necessary It also entails much premature smashing of furniture it the entire realism of it is to be attained The expense of making debris of tables and chairs is another consideration which renders this unique ceremony alien to the tastes of civilized people who aro accustomed to convert household furniture into wood pulp after not before marriage HairI almost looks conditionlonly fashionably and carefully but becomingly develops the good points of the features and the charm of

often suf fering It is injured by frizzing it with tho comb to increase its apparent bulk and by trying to draw the hair forward in front by means of a comb after it has been dressed many hairs come out with both these processes Do not comb the hair upward before brushing it on the contrary let It as sume Its most natural pose before dressing it Part the hair down the center before beginning brushing oper ations undc ontinue the brushing down from the root to the point When the hair is thicker part it in small strands and brush between The movement of brushing should be a gentle one not scouring the scalp but directed to the hair Curling on rol leers during the night is a strain but it is not so injurious as the persistant use of hot irons When face washes are used it is wise to introduce a little oil on the edgo of the hair so that none of tho face creams and tonics Find their way on to it Massage of the scalp and of the line where hair and face wonders The scalp should not be hard and immovable on the skull but soft and easily pushed back ward and this can be promoted by moving It gently with the fingers of bosh hands without Interfering with the hair This increased tho

221ha report that Gov Wlllson will call an extra session of the Legislature to pass neede legislation in the event of the failure of the present session tb pass it is vigorously denied hero by thoso who are close to the Gov r trnorIt pointed out by them that any failure of the Legislature to enact this measure cannot bo laid at the door of the Republicans inasmuch as they are In the lulnorltyTn both Houses and that the Governor would not In Iany event overstep the bounds of officials propriety and order a specla session for the accomplishment of something the General Assembly In Its wisdom might see fit to neglccc The sole cause of the hullabaloo which has been raised over the county unit bill is tho petty politics that bas been played Uy Dekhum and UK remnants of his machine to prevent the seating in the House of two Republicans who were as honestly and fairly elected as Gov Willson and the balance of the Republican State ticket The arguments and testimony In the cases were heard the second week in the legislative session but through the activity of the Deckham contin- gento have never been reported to the I HouseTo prevent the report on one of the cases coming up the Deckham Speaker of the House arbitrarily ad Jt journed the body a week ago and now with the Beckham Democrats It is a case of kill the county unit bill or anything else but prevent the seat ing of the two Republicans at all hazards On the best of authority it Is said that Speaker Gooch has entered Into a combination with a small circle of Democrats In tho House to prevent the ccmtest cases from being rtpurt edIt is believed that the committees In both cases wnlch are Democratic by a ratio of 5 to 2 will report in favor of seating tho Republican con testees If they are allowed to present their report to tho House This in what has worried the Demo cratic nominee for Senator day and night since the second week of the session and all his resourcefulness and energy and that of his circle1 of Intimate political friends have been directed to sidetracking the reports Naturally the Republicans are unX ions that the House dispose of these contests but tho Deckham Democrats andDemocratlc

custom to publicly whip petty criminals in the old days I and an occasion of this kind alwaysI attracted a largo crowd Lately however this practice has butt abandoned by the courts and the malefactors have been sentenced tc the state reformatory for a number of years Dut this old custom Is tc bo revived in Hopkins county The present term of circuit court has had six negro boys arraigned be foro It charged with robbery They belonged to an organized band which had committed several robberies in the business district told when brought to trial pleaded guilty The were given penitentiary sentence- but their sentences were suspende- on account of their youth on condi tion that they be given a public whipping To this the parents of all the youthful offenders agreed ex cept those of Tom Rakestraw but his mother has since given assent and he will be chastised along with the rest There are six boys who will be whipped in a public place probably in front of the court house It is expected that this will be done as soon as court adjourns and maybe th soon as court adjourns and maybe before As soon as Judge Gordon orders the whipping Jailer Craig will administer the punishment or dered by the court and it promises to be an experlnce that the negroes will remember for a long time Jailer Craig Is strong physically and when he administers tho rod the of fenders will make the air resound With their cries for mercy The negro boys to bo whipped are Garland Goodloe Betray Cook Jack Porttr Willie Brooks Alec Majors and Tom Rakestraw It Is not known if the lash will be applied on their bare backs but It Is probable that such will be the case There will be a large crowd present to seethe chastisement of these boys and the spectators will assemble to see how well Jailer Craig rppljes the

Anierhfchs are much tiore gulll ble than natives of other lands can very readily be called Into question by inybody ut all familiar with the his tory of bouxdom I suppose that for pure effrontery and Ingenious bruzen ness the Fortsas Catalogue stands into front rank of deception Yet this pamphlet was foisted not upon the r American public but upon the savants and bibliophiles of Europe men skill

catalogue was to be found In any other library or publishers IIstiThey were all abso lutely sole surviving copies of Inv tensely Interesting works In the words of the catalogue Itself the count
