Have Stood by Them Senator Bradley spoke at Glasgow last Saturday afternoon and at Bow ling Green at night to largo audiences He appealed to Republicans not to show ingratitude to those who had stood to them in their darkest hours He said In part The papers which favor Mr Taft seem to think that it is an outrage ous thing for me to takean active part for Fairbanks and predict that such a course will produce dissension in tho Republican party Such an apprehension Is both farfetched and un reasonable 1 shall not say or do any thing calculated to produce such a re sult I am conscientiously doing what I believe to be a duty to the Republican party for the Republican leader who falls to warn his party of the breakers ahead is an unfaithful pilot It is said that I am an officehol der and should not do anything which I condemn in other officeholders I am not an officeholder and will not be un til tho 4th of March next but even If I were a Senator today it would be expected of me for that reason to take an active part for a Senator is part and parcel of the political and Jawmaking power of the Government I have no personal interest in the nomination of any candidate for President for whoever may be nominat ed I shall heartily support him and if elected shall treat him with all the deference that his position entitles Jim to and have no doubt that he will treat me with the consideration to which a Senator is entitled It mat ters not who may be the President he will have no office within his gift that I would accept Nor do I de sire to be a party dictator as has been charged I have as much right to select and support a candidate for President or any other office as any other man has not excepting our greu President No President has the rgiht to name his successor If one President has this right then every President has it and the President In stead of the people wuold select the Chief Magistrate thus curtailing the liberty of the citizens In a Republic no principle akin to monarchy should be recognized We lave a race ahead of us that is no childs play The panic and all its consequences will be charged on the Republican party and while the party Is not responsible for it it will be in cumbent on us to show it We shuold have a candidate who will receive the united support of every element of the party and with such a candidate we will surely win Why should we have a candidate who can not carry any considerable element when we can have one who will carry All 71 desire to impress upon you that 1 am for the Republican party above any man or set of men in it If this be treason make the most of it Again I am here today to pay in some small degree a debt of gratitude- I owe to your splendid Senator John T Smith and his departed father For years his noble father was my loyal friend and the loyallty of the son has not been less marked than that of the father For more than forty days le stood faithfully by us at Frank fort always sturdy and brave and sure ly I should now stand by him in his race for delegate You have been tol by some newspapers that I will bato nc influence in the disposition of patron Age Whether true or not I fall to see what that has to do with present conditions Surely patriotic Republicans are not to be controlled by pa tronage There is something nobler And grander In politics than a place at the pie counter Republicans who are Jiuntlng alone for office are entitled to no consideration So far as any control of patronage I may have is concerned it will not be used for the advancement of those who have no higher motive than to pick out soft places to fall in before announcing their preferences Let us fight the battle first and win it before we even think about official patronage Less energy in hunting for office dutylJess pie more principle and less sub 1i Jc serving to selfish greed is demanded by every llbertyloving Republican You have been told that 1 have de nounced the Federal officeholders for being for Mr Tuft The charge Is falre But I have denounced concert ed action and conspiracy by the office holders to dominate the rank and tile of the party There are more persons not holding office than persons who hold offices And if those out of office exercise the freedom from officeholders domin ation and such a course should result In some who are In office going out and some who are out going in there can be no just cause of complaint Our critics are able to point to two prominent Federal officers George W Long and E T Franks as being for Mr Fairbanks in answer to the charge that the Federal officehol ders with substantial unanimity are for Mr Taft They talk about State of ficers They claim that a majority of the State officers are for Taft and mention my good friends Breathltt Farley Crabbo and James but they should remember that Wlllson Bruner Rankin Scott and Mllward are on the other side- However this may be it is immaterial The majority of the rank and file of the party in this State is for Fairbanks and this is of more consequence than the position of a few persons elected to office Some of the Taft people think that the best way to defeat Fairbanks is for so called Republican newspapers to traduce me and anonymous letters replete with falsehoods are given circulation with that view Continued on Fourth Page 1I 6 NEW LINE OPENED BY ILLINOIS CENTRAL Runs

Is going to walt for Powers to have another trial before pardoning him he might just as well take him out and havo him shot or hanged It is my belief that Powers will never live to face another trial and I baso my phyI Tills statement made by Judge J C Sims one of Powers attorneys in the Hall of Representatives this af ternoon caused a mild snesatlon More than 100 persons including a sprinkling of woman who had been seated in the chamber throughout the day list ening to the arguments before Got Willson on application for irrdonsfor- Caleb Powers and James B Howard were visibly moved and tears came to several pairs of eyes At an all days session Gov Will son listened to more arguments by Powers attorneys as to why the cele brated prisoner should be extended executive clemency The full staff of defense attorneys were on hand as well as Commonwealths Attorney Rob ert B Franklin and Arthur Goebel The argument in behalf of Howard was first taken up by Attorney W M Smith Ho said the first two con victions of Howard had been obtained by means which ho did not desire to criticiseThe of these convictions have been strewn with political wrecks he declared Taking up the evidence which he said tended to con nect Howard with the murder of Goe bel ho said that Youtsey was not wearing strips in the penitentiary but was dressed as well as any man present and by reason of this was In duced to make his statements against Howard then Executive clemency should be granted Taking up the political aspects of the case Attorney Smith pointed the case of Jefferson Davis as a pa rallel and how the act of oblivion was passed and a pardon was granted to Davis to heal up the old sores al though if the Constitution of the Government was correct he was guilty of treason Mr Smith discussed at length Yout seys testimony as to the assassina tion endeavoring to show that the evi dence tended to incriminate Youtsey more than Howard He declared that if Howard was Innocent the connec ting link which has been used to bind Powers and Taylorto the crime was broken He asserted that the truth of the matter was that Youtsey killed Goebel i aC1tl011gosz and Gulteau and said he was a pervert if there ever was Judge J C Sims oneIment In behalf of Smith had finished and said he had three points to make as to why Pow ers should be pardoned They are FIrstThat Powers was denied bail after his last trial when there was a hung jury SecondThat the record shows that he is absolutely Innocent of the charge against him ThirdThat as the law now stands it is impossible for him ever to get a fair and impartial trial before a fair and Impartial jury Judge Sims dwelt at length on these points He said that In his thirty years experience he had never heard of a prisoner being denied ball when ten of the jury said he was guilt less and only two stood for convic tion He then discussed the testimo ny deduced at the last Powers trial devoting himself principally to efforts Id discredit Youtseys testimony Judge Ben G Williams who assist rankIlInhis connection with the Goebel cases and sketched briefly a history of the famous election contest cases He told Qt the discussion and planning of the bolder spirits which he said were led by Caleb Powers for the ending of the Democratic contest either by killing oft enough Democratic members of the Legislature or Goebel himself In regard to tho guilty of Howard t r mu Willlams had never doubted the willingness or ability of Youtsoy to kill Goebel Ho called attention to the fact that Jim Howard was found making affidavits before Gov Taylor for the calling out of the militia whereas ho had claimed that he did not know the Governor He also endeavored to show up nu merous contradictions of Howard as to his acquaintance with W S Taylor and his presence in Frankfort at the time iri concluding his address Judge Wil Hams said that Powers last trail was the first in which powers was ready for trial that in all of the others he was constantly seeking delay and fighting for continuance TOO MUCH WHISKEYKILLS BOY Youth Got Hold of His Fathers Jup and Imbibed Too Freely Of Contents Willie J the fiveyearold son of Mr and Mrs Pat

Closed Pending Settlement Be tween Them Louisville Ky April 14Unless the operators members of the Western Kentucky Coal Operators Association recede from their position and agree to pay the wages of the shot firers whose employment is provided for by the Wright bill passed by the last Legislature there will be a strike of the union miners of Western Kentucky Tills fact was made plain to the operators by President W O Smith act Ing for the miners In executive session late yesterday afternoon Mr Smith today reterated that this is the position of the miners and that they would not recede He said that the scale of wage and conditions if signed must be for one year and not for two years as demanded by the operatorsOn two questions an agree ment hlng If one side or the oth er does not recede a strike will be called and 5000 miners and mine laborers In Ohio Muhlenberg Butler McLean Davlcss Webster Henderson and Un ion counties will be Involved To consider the ultimatum of the miners an executive session of the operators Is being held today at the Old Inn Before the meeting was call ed to order one of tho operators de clared that under no circumstances would the operators pay the wage of the shot firers It appears certain now that a strike will be called said this operator for an agreement is impossible un der the circumstances The miners must recede or we will close down our mines and keep them closed for the summer We have plenty of coal it is Immaterial to us whether we operate the mines or not Louisville Ky April IGOn the surface at least and there was no apparent undercurrent of a different nature the operators of tho Western Kentucky Coal Operators Association and the delegates of District No 23 of the United Mine Workers Union reached an amicable agreement yesterday afternoon at 410 oclock In the city hall to suspend work in the coal mines of Western Kentucky for an indefinite period pending the sign ing of a wage scale agreement to sup ersede the old agreement which expired March 31 The decision to suspend opera tions temporarily shuts down about fit ty mines employing union labor and throws between 3500 and 4000 miners out of work The call for the joint subsonic committees to reconvene Is excepted to be issued around April 25 and the resumption of the conference is looked for about May 1 Until that time only enough men will be at work In the mines to keep them in godd shape look after the pumps and en gines and mine enough coal to keep these pumps and engines in opera tionThis action seemed to be perfectly satisfactory to both sides The opera tors did not seem inclined at this time to accede to the demands of the miners that they pay the wages of the shot firers and the miners could not see their way clear to signing any other kind of a contract The situation Is anything but in the strike stage as both sides are friend ly and no attempt will be made to operate the mines with nonunion la bor A truce was taken with both sides awaiting further developments before signing new agreements Allover the country the situation is about the same Texas and one small I district in Pennsylvania alone being the only places where new contracts have been signed between the opera tors and the miners for the next two years The Kentucky employers and employes will watch developments in other parts of the country learn the trend of affairs and then make anoth er effort to come to terms Proposition to Complete to Hartford It Is authorith ely reported that the L and N R R Co has made a proposition to walton Wilson Rodes Co the

aristocratic thing about the farm these days says Eliza bethtottn News Tho price of hogs on the market the past few days has made the farmers with a big bunch of them sit up and take notice with the result that the crib which has beet denied them for the past several months is now at their disposal The market price on hogs the other day was 610 which is a considerable advance over the quotation of a few days ago However there are few farmers in the county who are In a position to take advantage of the sudden rise as so few of them have fat hogs on hand The majority of those who have been wintering their hogs either sold them before tho advance or have not put them in condition to dispose of The price of corn the past winter did not Justify farmers In feeding It to their hogs Seventyfive cent corn fed to 4c hogs didnt look good to them and his hogshlp In most Instances had to root for himself Now that hogs have advanced those farmers that have them claim that the scarcity of corn is another problem that confronts them However it is safe that the crop of stock hogs In the country will be weed ed out as fast as their owners can get them in shape for the market rNO

Wolves and Wild Cats Wild horses by the thousands are overrunning the government National Forests of Nevada and neighboring Washingtonstockmen and farmers begging them to put a stop to the nuisance A recent dispatch from Reno conveyed the Intelligence that there are fifteen thou sand of the untamed beasts upon the Tolyabe Toqulna and Monitor forest reserves In Landor county alone and that orders have been received by the forest rangers to begin a system atic war of extermination upon them This dlspatchaithough twisted as to facts does not exaggerate the number of borses now supposed to be roam Ing at large In the districts men tioned As a matter of probable truth there are a good many more than fifteen thousand wild horses in Nevada and the neighboring states and every herd Is a pest to the owners ol vegetation and domestic stock The part of the Reno telegram which Is not true Is that relating to the orders sent from Washington Neither the forest rangers nor any other employees of the government have been told to destroy the horses and unless they do receive such orI ders they will confine their ener gies to fencing crops from the tres passing animals or rounding them upI when they appear and threaten da mage to the range Instead If half the stories brought to the capital are true all the rangers In Cncle Sams service would have little chance of destroying the big herds that are roam log over the Western states Within the last few years they rave increased to such an extent that in many localities they are classed as varmints with wolves wildcats and grizzlies and every mans rifle Is turned against them No fence Is strong enough to stop these horses ant when they appear In force they have even been known to knock down And kill cows and calves After each vlittation from a herd the ranchman ls Ukely to mourn the loss of his domestic hones and It requires only a ret days association with their new companions for the best broken ani mals to become as wild as their noma dic comrades- A study of the wild horse problem brings to light many Interesting facts about the animals The Legislature of Nevada It seems passed a law many yeas ago specifically allowing banters to shoot wild horses and to salt their hides for what they could get In the open market The law op wed the way to a new and unusual Industry and many men found the Wiling of niid horses very profitable Besides the work was exciting and gave the business the added zest of sportAs time went on and the business of killing those outlaws as the wild horses were often termed on the ran Keg assumed greater and greater pro portions stockmen found that the pro foetilonal hunters were in many cases abusing their rights and were killing branded and shod horses This put an end to the business for on com plaint of the stockmen the Nevada Legislature proroptel the law It is estimated that 15000 animals were killed during the time that the law was In force This figure gave the basis for last weeks story The report however had good basis of fact for tile wild horses question has grown to bo as serious in the last few years as It was when the Nevada Legislature was forced to enact the old law The United States forest service has not given orders for the killing of a single horse because it has no right to do so The forest officers of the Nevada national for ests realize how bad conditions are and will do anything to assist the stockmen to put down the nuisance Any one who finally discovers an ef JTective method to settle this problem will have done a great service for the fltockmen of every state of the Mls sourl River As an old and experienced stockman now in the employ of Uncle Sam said of this wild liorse Problem Theoretically It Feems a very simple matter to han die but practically It is quite the reverse On the ranges of many of the national forests the sepervisors I have been a their wits ends for set eral years trying to devise a meth od to meet the difficulty Apparently an entirely satisfactory method can not be found because of the inadequate estray laws now enforced in the different states Under the I circumstances the following plan has j been recommended to meet the conI editions In the national forests j If the presence of the horses Is r +aa t seriously damaging the national for est range and public sentiment favors such action the supervisor may upon petition of a majority of the per mittees of a grazing district allow the horses to be gathered and disposed of according to the state or territorial laws In such cases the forest ser vice will upon recommendation from the supervisor cooperate in the con struction of corrals or fences for the purpose of capturing the horses Forest officers may drive unper mitted horses from the national for ests at any time but if the owners of the horses are known and ownership acknowledged the owner should be allowed to adjust the matter by paying the grazing fee If he refuses to apply for a permit then a trespass change should be brought against him according to UnbrandedInstructionsI led according but forest officers can not be allow ed to gather such horses for the pur i pose of using or selling them nor can they be allowed to collect any remuneration from any person for I corralling unclaimed horses The poll cy of the forest service will be there fore to cooperate with the stock men of the state or territory authorities when they take the Initiative in disposing of wild horses In the national j forests but the present laws and regulations do not admit of Indepenj dent action by the forest service The wild horse problem is only one of the many which stockmen have to contend with the government Is trying in one way or another to solve j on the ranges of the national forests I Predatory animals such as wolves coyotes mountain lions and wildcats do thousands of dollars worth of damage to stock each year In all parts of the country On some gcs forest officers have to contend- with rustlers who sometimes suc ceed in stealing the great part of the i stock which the predatory animals do not kill Poisonous plants are anoth er nuisance which give the stockmen considerable trouble In many parts of the country Uncle Sam has always shown a disposition to cooperate with the stock nuisancesImeeting the stockmen half way in the work On many of the national for est ranges for the last year rangers and guards have been assigned to the work of hunting and trapping with thee I sole aim of killing off the animals that prey upon stock The work has hunII10f the hunters Each animal killed a decided saving to the sheep oneIForest officers are cooperating with the stock associations to stop the stealing of live stock and run the warIed on for more than a year by the forest fenIce In cooperation with andIcan many i statesIf I Is possible to check the wild horse nuisance as easily as the other troutles which have bothered the stock Interests both the stockman and forest officers will find the Western ranges rid of another serious drawback with helps to retard progress In the busines- sGALVESTON FLOODI WAIF FOUND ALIVE Mother Identifies Son She

Principal newspapers of Kentucky will L publish this week the startling information that a 260 acre apparently worthless hill in Ken tucky has been found and proven to be one of the richest pieces of ground on the face of Jhe earth This 260 acres contains a horizon tal 94 ft ledge of the most valuable rock In existence The Government representative who visited the property in his report issued by the United States Geological Survey made the startling statement that there are but two ledges of rock like It In the world one In Bavaria which has been supplying millions of dollars worth of the product annually to lithographic printing presses In every civilized nation on the globe the other in Kentucky The hill is estimated to be worth into the hundreds of millions of dollars Think of It one acre of the ground of the 9 ft ledge of lithographic stone at the aver age selling price per pound would bring more moneythan a acre of wheat would yield by harvesting a crop every year for two hundred thou sand yearsji I A Simple Proposition After All Products that are rare and high priced are so because of their scarcity It is difficult to believe that rock In any form especially when found in a ledge so tremendous in area that it will take 500 years to exhaust sells from 11 to 50 cents a pound but such is a fact and Is only explainable because there exists but two quarries in the world Such Is the statement of the United States Geological Survey This find will make its owners multimillionaires will enrich the coroporation and pay dividends from SO to 500 per cent to its stockholders Fortunately for Kentucky and KentuckIans the property is In Kentucky and its stock Is offered to citizens of this commonwealth i Money is Difficult to Make Money can not be made easily It requires efforts experience skill industry but with this discovery and the consequent development there comes the opportunity for one to make money easily A small Investment of a few hundred dollars will earn sufficient to keep a family In comfort This can be readily understood when the fact Is known that there are 692 lithographic houses in the United States Importing annually from Bavaria a total of 12300000 worth of this wonderful rock which costs the Bavarian quarrymen less than 300000 to quarry and market As a proof of this The Government and community interests In Bavaria in addition to the profits made by the quarrymen who leased the quarries have been paid up to this time nearly sixty million dollars royalties It Is very simple as the rock can be quarried as easily as building stone It Is then sawed In slabs of 4 Inches thick ranging In sizes from 12 Inches by 14 Inches to 44 Inches by 64 Inches These slabs market at from 300 to 50000 each according to size fifty times the value of ordinary stone fifteen to twenty times more valuable than marble or on- yxWe Have Undeniable Proof Months were consumed after the discovery in opening up the quarry taking out the rock preparing It furnishing It to expert lIthograph rersand submitting it to every test with a rendered verdict that It Is not only equal to the best imported stone but superior to the major = ty of the product being Imported from Bavaria Another thing the Bavarian quarries are almost exhausted which will leave this corporation In possession of the world as a market with possible dividends of from SO to 500 per cent To Give One an IdeaA plain illustration We could furnish fifteen out of the C92 lithographic houses in the United States alone and pay 20 per cent but the entire 692 Is ready to take our product South AmerlcaCanada the entire Continent will require of us their supply Europe also The Character of the ProofsWould you question the Governments statement on a 2000 note that Is worth 2000 This wonderful property has the same stamp of Cer taint and approval In addition the most experienced quarryman in Kentucky reports positively as to the find Again representatives of the leading Importers of the product from New York have visited the quarry examined Its charter and extent pronounced the product supe rior and are anxious for this Company to reach the position where we can furnish them their supply Again we have letters written by experts the skilled workmen who have spent their lives In engraving upon and transferlng upon lithographic stone all varieties of the high

Baron von SicrnlAucfl talk was a presentation of statistics biuv ing how Germany had grown front R r position of economic weakness fifty yeaYs ago to the present strength and r prosperity It appears from this exhibit that while International trade has had some effect the greater share oJ Iof this increase in wealth and In t economic power has come from pro secuting the opportunities found at s home Agricultural mining and In dustrlal developments has been extraordinary until today Germany Is In an enviable position In a sort of summing up Baron von r Sternburg said The total produc tion of wealth according to the latest f estimates represents enormous suns Agricultural productions art estimated at 36 billion dollars annually gross and the industrial productions figured at 86 billion dollars gross per annum Approximately fourfifths of this out put Is disposed of in the internal markets Consequently the German economic syetcm ranks among the most efficient of the world agricul turally as well as Industrially It is In splendid condition and sound foun dations These conclusions harmon- Ize with facts and figures furnished by impartial authority Germany has made amazing advancement until she she has a foreign trade second only to r hthat of Great Britlan among European nations And this foreign trade as the German Ambassador points out Is simultaneous with unequaled do mestic progress How has Germany done it The answer is to be looked for in the same direction as in the United Sta tes which has become the industrial and commercial marvel of the world Germany has Protected its home In terests and she has done this so scientifically and effectively that the nation has gone forward by leaps and bounds The secret of true and last Ing prosperity is to make the re

American t rnt 41 q x rl v rye IIIndustry and the wages of every can workman AmerI The Tariff will bo revised down as may be necessary to make it really Protective The force of this declaration as the American Economist points out in an editorial commentary consists not alone in the assurance of absolute Protection but also in the implication that in order somelofIncreased PitUburg Chronlcicilfa j

Leslie M Shnw a standpatter of standpatters began advocating this Idea two years ago The progressives demurred to arid de thlYIthe inltlave at Washington as they have in Ohio and Iowa and they have laid down this strong Protective line along which revision will be had The cost of labor and material having greatly advanced since the Dingley law was adopted some of the schedules will have to have the rates raised if re gard is to be had as to the differ ence between the cost of production at home and abroad These changed conditions are going to greatly dis appoint those people who have Imagin

SENATOR BRADLEYTAKES STUMP Continued from First Page IIf I were to stop to throw a rock at every little dog that barks at my anonymousIdogdistance The man who Is ashamed to make public his name is not entitled to decent respect- It it not my purpose to discuss whether my election was a calamity to tho party or a calamity to some of time officeholders who have fattened at the public crib for eleven years and who may probably not longer continue the toast and who now cry calamity notwithstanding the hearty congratulations to me after the election It lis entirely unnecessary to refer to those Republclans who did all In their whoIRepublican who regrets the election of a Republican United States Sen ator and who makes false charges concerning its accomplishment will In ninetynine instances out of a hundred officeholderIJeu tho party succeed and who is wildly struggling to get into what he thinks Is the band wagon What a terrible calamity It would be should he get In the wrong wagon or even If he gets Into the rglht one and finds that his candidate is not a mere dis pem ser of patronage- It is surely unnecessary for me to make an apology in this place for sup porting for the nomination for the Pres idency the man whose nametor sometime appeared at the masthead of your local paper who broke bread at at the table of your genial postmas ter and who in the fall of 1906 was in troduced In this town by your able re presentative in Congress as the next President of the United Statesthd Hon Charles Warren Fairbanks notwith standing these gentlemen have since changed their opinions Let no man go away from this place and state that I have uttered an unkind word of Mr Taft He is an able and distinguished American citizen who has shown himself to be endowed with patriotism and statesmanship and If he should bo nominated and my strength admits of it I shall be found I fighting his bat Jo on the firing line while many of those who have tradu ced me are reposing in the shade of their luxurious homes There are many who are brave and active in their own party when a nomination Is to be ninth but who are unwilling to expose their persons to the slings and arrows of thdr adversaries There are many who speak glibly and ile finantly in conventions whose courage oozes from the finger ends when con fronted by their enemies There are many who can becomingly wear kid gloves and silken hose who can neith er give nor take blows to or from the enemy Those men are splendid on dress parades but worth nothing for actual service When they have fought as many battles and won as many victories for the Republican party as those they traduce their criticism may be hooded but until that time they will fall on unwilling ears and attract as little notice as the passing wind that like them bloweth where It llsteth It would be entirely unnecessary that I should enter into a dls cusslon of the Brownsville incident or the speeches of Mr Taft regarding negro suffrage for whether he was right or wrong they have caused an unfriendly feeling and bitter opposi tion among the negroes of the nation Some glibly say Damn the nigger They may say this as much as they choose but that does not alter the fact that the negroes hold the balance of power In Missouri Kentucky Maryland West Vlrganla Ohio Illinois In dlanaNew Jersey and New York Nor is it necessary that I should enter into a discussion of the merits of the various opinions rendered by Judge Taft affecting the labor question Whether Just or unjust organized la bor through Its leaders on that ac count oppose him and declare that they will not support him In the event that Mr Taft should be nominated I hope that these dis cordant elements may be pacified and I will do as much as lies in my pow er to accomplish that result I do not say that Mr Taft cannot be elect ed If nominated but I do say that others can more easily and certainly be elected That Judge Taft is the Presi dents favorrite I do not

gives probably the first written account of the muskrat Ho says that the mussacus is a beast of the form and nature of our English water rat and adds that some of them smell exceedingly strong of musk These anlnmls may bo caught In almost any sort of trap baited with sweet apples or parsnips Muskrats have very strong teeth and can use them on wood effectively so it Is wise to protect all corners and cracks In your wooden traps with pieces of tin or sheet Iron They have good noses and can smell an apple a long distance off Place your traps in the shallow water at the edge of the mill pond or stream inhabited by these rats and they will doubtless find it wIthout difficulty Young muskrats ore very gentle and playful nnd may be handled without fear They do not grow fierce with ago If reared

was to lay a waiting game If hed been buying a roller skating rink to raise winter radishes in or was thinking of xcbanglug the house nnd lot fora war Dnlloon she would hear of It In due time All through dinner bo main mined a patronizing air and carried a uMucd excitement and it wait not mill they wore seated in the family room that ho untied the bag of mys THOSE STOCKINGS I1AVE SOLD AS mall AS A DOLLAR A PAIB cry lIe made a jump to answer a ring at the front door and Mrs Bow icr caught sight of a boy and a number of packages Please keep your seat my dear he said as she camo running down the nail But those aro store packages she relliledIIAnd I havent been shopping for three days There must be some mistake See If they dont belong next door These packages are nil right They are addressed to our name and num ber and they were duly paid for hours ago If you will kindly sit down and still your beating heart and not act like n child of ten I will explain matters Mr Bowser was In no hurry It was a case for dramatic effects and he meant to ring In a few He placed the several parcels and packages on a chair and proceeded to walk up and down the room with his hands behind him for three or four minutes Then he said Mrs Bowser on numerous occa sions I have spoken to you about rush Ing down town to bargain sales Yes and you have spoken to me in a mean way too she replied Very likely I 113TeI know that when you have stated that yoU could buy the regular dollar and a half glove for 03 cents I have looked upon you as a soft mark You have now and then called my attention to ladles hosiery at onehalf price to close out I have given you money to take nvantage of such sales but I have at the some time pitied your guilelessness But they do have what they call knockdown sales and now and then I havo made some excellent bargains Hunting Bargain For years Mrs Bowser as I said before I have considered you a soft mark I have smiled at the way the clerks must have smiled to seo you come in bargain hunting I havo want ed to swear when I thought of the thousands and tens of thousands and millions of dollars you have paid into tile coffers of the dry goods stores There have been times when I thought to appeal to your common sense and other times when I determined to for bid you to attend a bargain sale of any sort or kind But I got these shoes for 73 cents ort was answered Thats worth saving isnt ItT At last he continued without look Ing at bar an Idea struck me We will say That it was a bright idea I would go shopping myself and solve the mystery of the bargain sales I would seek to discover where tho fraud came in I would expose the duplicity of the merchants and hold them up in public censure I would discover whether a pair of ninetyeight cent stockings reduced to 47 cents were actually worth 75 cents And you went shopping this after noonI went 1 shopping And you bought bought MI bought n number of articles They are here I arranged for their delivery at this hour And did you find bargains anx lously asked Mrs Bowser My dear woman my name Is Bow ser as perhaps you knowSamuel Bowser When I say a thing I mean j I r It Not In your life have you known mo to make a retraction I day and I stickYes 1 know I pride myself on sticking Id rather loso a thousand dollars than to own up that I was In tho wrong Yes But In this case Mrs Bowser in the case before usI am going to do an unprecedented thing I am going to frankly own up that I was all wrong I am going to announce that there aro bargain sales I am going to own up that there ore great big bargains to be had at bargain sales I am going to state my belief that the woman who keeps her eyes open for bargaIn sales will save her husband thousands of dollars in tho course of theyearMr you are ono of the best husbands In all this wldo world said Mrs Bowser as she stepped forward and gave him a wifely kiss Now then show me what bargains you have been making hpIof the parcels and handed her three pairs of stockings J Those stockings have sold as high as a dollar a pair but to make room for fall stock they were closing them out at 40 cents Theres a saving of 1SO right thero Two pairs were No 10 end tho third No7 while Mrs Dowsers size Is No8 Ho was looking at her with a bland smile on his face however and what could she say They hadnt toll him that articles bought at a bargain sale could not bo exchanged and in making his purchase he hall never tak en the size of the foot into account And these gloves he said as he held up a pair of kids green in color and only one button at the wrist tho girl assured me that they were all the go but in order to make room for brass bedsteads they were closing them out I saved just 75 cents on cm Gloves the Wrong Size Mrs Bowser wears a No 0 glove and those were 7Y She never wore a green glove In her life and Mr Dowser hmlut taken notice of the fact He watched her face for n smile and with a great effort she managed to work up one and then be picked up another parcel and said We have here some handkerchiefs that were selling at GO cents each The room was wanted for woolen blankets and co we buy tho handkers at one third the regular price The saving isnt enough to buy a house and lot but every little helps Am I a bargain hunter or am I not Of course you are you dear good man you was the reply though they were mens handkcrs and she had bought him better ones many a time for less money- I dont know that I shouldnt have bought this ho explained as he held up a corset but it was going at such a sacrifice that I couldnt resist itaregular two dollar corset for OS cents and the salesgirl said it would last you a lifetime Oh yes Im admitting that there Is money to bo saved in looking for bargains Mrs Bowser weighs 133 pounds That corset was made for a woman weighing just 100 pounds more It wasnt her make or her style The husband who thinks that his wife wears most any old corset has some thing to learn Mr Bowser had looked upon a comet as a corset and bought one Mrs Dowser had to laugh at the grimness of tho joke nnd bo was pleased with himself There was one more package the largest of all Site suspected Its contents and would have given a hundred dollars to be else where for the next half hour It was a ladys hat It was intended for a young lady 01 eighteen or twenty- It was cocked up on all sides It was rakish and debonair and sau cy and Impudent and darcdevlllsh and yet Mr Bowser reverently extended it on his hand and said For you my dear and how do you like it I got it for 5 less than tho regular price Let us draw a veil over most of what followed It Is sufficient to say that Mrs Bowser tried to faint away but she only succeeded in sitting down on the floor in hysterics Mr Bowser onco more becamo Mr Bowser that is ho jumped up and down and tore the hat into fragments He talked about di vorce She was ordered to her mothers by the morning train She had driven him to the dead line at last and nnd lie put on his hot and left the hone and when he came in at 3 oclock in the morning and was asked if it was raining outdoors he shut his jaws hard and
