Reappointment Senatorelect W Q Bradley has Issued the following statement refuting charges that his election resulted from improper alliance with Democrats The most disreputable methods have been employed by some of the Taft leaders to Injure my standing as a Republican and a man Not content with sowing broadcast over the State the editorials of Mr Sam J Roberts the Collector of the Seventh District in his paper the Lexington Leader the anonymous letter signed Old Line Republican in handbill form is being mailed out with It Certainly the fit ness of companionship between the two will be readily recognized AH the batteries have been turned loose on me because I dared to object to the combination of Federal officeholders to dictate the Presidential nomination anl conscientiously expressed the opinion that by reason of the hostility of the Labor Unions and the Negroes Mr Taft was our weakest candidate Be lieving this to be true I would have been false to my party as well as myself had I remained silent Dir Roberts knows full well that tin secret of all his opposition is that he did not believe I would favor his retention In office where he has rat tened at public expense for eleven years His statement that he worked for the ticket last fall is true but there never was a moment when his b motive was to assist me for he did not believe I had any substantial hope and never had such hope himself of my election as Senator However before the General Assembly conven ed having heard the publicly express ed dissatisfaction of some Democratic members and tho leading Democratic newspaper of Kentucky with Mr Beck ham the certainty that they would not support him and seeing from the public press that more than twothirds of the Republican memberselect had declared themselves for mo and be laving there was at least a possibility that I might be elected he hasten ed to publish an editorial In which lie advised the Republicans to make no centest for a Senator but to vote oven for Mr Beckham if thereby the Republicans could obtain the pas bill etc Hissage of a redlstrictiing paper with this editorial marked so as to call especial attention to it was sent to nearly if not all of the Repub lican members He contends that all of Governor Wlllsons effects to procure the legislation mentioned were frustrated by t the Republican meeting hold at Frank fort on the night preceding the Inau guration at which he says they bound A the party to vote as a unit on all measures of a political character No such action was taken at that meet Ing Those who were there declared themselves as favoring my nomination tor the Senate and as in favor of con ferring together on all questions that might be brought before the Houses That action did not and was not Intended to bind anybody Again Mr Roberts says The County Unit Bill was in a her way to be shelved in the House until a storm of protest compelled a complete change of program This statement is untrue there nev of that measure er was any probability being shelved In the House be cause more than twothirds of the members were in favor of it It is openly charged In the public pressand not denledso far us I know that Mr Beckhams friends proposed to the liquor people that If the bolting members wold elect him no antlwhls ky legislation should pass the Senate lAand that this proposition was refused iwhereupon the threat was made that tho County Unit Bill would at once be passed through the House and held over the heads ot those who had refu sed to vote for Mr Beckham and if hey did not vote for him would be rushed through tho Senate Preceding this Mr Haswell a Republican Introduced a County Unit Dill but the opposition determined he should not I be allowed the credit of procuring Its r J passage and a copy of his bill was in troduced by Mr Vaggoner referred to i the Committee on Religion and Morals G cifAS k 1IIr printed at a private printing office instead of by the public printer n meeting of the committee held when two of its members were absent an agreement reached to report It favorably and so reported the next theIblll The Republicans had two contests against Democratic sitting members which were in every respect just and desired to bring them to a conclusion They were hoping for fair treatment at the hands of enough Democrats to seat tho contestants They undertook to keep the contests ahead of the County Unit Bill hoping In this way to Induce the Democrats who favored that measure to allow tho contests to be taken up But after the speaker ruled all efforts of the Republicans out of order and refused to allow an appeal from his decision to be voted on a motion was introduced by a Re publican County Unit man providing for the immediate consideration of the Unit Bill and then for the consider ation of the contest This effort to reach the contest was again blocked by the speaker but the vote on the County Unit Bill was taken and the same was passed nfvery

ican Newspaper Publishers association that the price for print paper has In creased from 35 to 50 per cent during the past few months and Whereas It is alleged and asserted that the alleged increased price of pa perper is in part tho result of a combination and conspiracy on the part of wood pulp and paver manufacturers a c dealers to controlregulateand monopolize and restrain interstate and

State William J Bryan is a hasbeen His star reached its zenith some time ago and when his name goes before the Den ver convention he will be looking rorI votes Tile tide always has a limit It continues to swell until that limit Is reached and then It recedes The tide of popularity of Mr Bryan reached that limit with tho adjournment of the state convention in Nebraska which lauded him mid recommended him for another nomination and has been receding ever since This Is the remarkable statement of Governor John A Johnson of Minne sota who Is just now opening his campaign for the Democratic nomination for president The governor passed through Omaha on his way to Kansas where he addressed tho Lindsberg school and then proceed to Lynchburg Vu to take Inactive part In his campaign The governors attention was called to an editorial in the WorldHerald the personal organ of Mr Bryan stating that tho Pennsylvania delegation would be Instructed for Mr Urn That statement Is entirely untrue said Johnson and when that Penn sylvania delegation reaches Denver they will become surprises for the Nebraskan The Democrats of the country have apparently been loyal to Mr Bryan because there was appar ently no other candidate In the field until recently Now that there ap- pealS to be a real contest It is another proposition There Is little doubt In my mind that the Pennsylvania delegation will vote with New York and that is a very fine start dont you think so Mr Bryan was for several years the grand old man of the Democratic party and many consider him as such yet but how long this popularity will continue Is a matter of conjecture The signs of the time indicate an ominous and rocky future for him I presume I ought to apologize for com- Ing into Nebraska

Snteruational Congress Called for October to Discuss This Serious Conditon Tho Office of Public Roads of the United States Department of Agriculture has recently been conducting II series of very Interesting experiment to learn tho amount of damage don to the rock surface thoroughfares by automobiles The results prove that the modern fast moving motor car is the greatest menace to macadam road that has ever made Its appearance On some stretches of thoroughfare especially In New England where man broad and smooth roads havo been constructed the retrogression Is not less than 40 per cent and It has boon forced upon tho Director of the Offlc of Public loads and upon many highway engineers that If some plan Is not speedily devised for overcoming tho bad effects of ment latest and mos sensational mode of laud transporta tlon the monetary loss will bo stup endows and the good work of many years will go for naught- It Is not only in America that thl condition prevails The men of Eng land France Germany HollandBel glum and other counties of the old world where hard surfaced highway are appreciated have also learned tha the big soft rubber tires of the auto mobile are doing an almost IncrodI bio amount of harm France has officially taken cognizance of the condition and has called tin International Congress to meet at Paris on October 11 to discuss plans for saving the roads while in no wayInterfering wlU the devolopment of tho automobile for no scientist will condemn ono worthy civilizing influence because It temporarily conflicts with another Ho will admit that a new condition has arisen and then set on foot an investigation with the idea of mastering It To many it may seem beyond belle that a pneumatic rubber tire can work any injury to a Tend composed of bits of crushed flint rock but It become plain when the theory of such roads Is cxprained rho macadam road named after John Louden Macadan OT Ayr Scotland who was for year libibtvay fcurtuyor of Bristol was first laid down by the eminent French road engineer Tresauget of Limoges who wisely figured that slowly moving Iron tlrd wfmms would crush dust parti cles from the atones of the roads sur face that these particles would bt constantly sifted between the in terstlcve of the large stones that eve ry iNt5 Iiij wagon would crush then firmer into all ruts and inequalities that rains would aid and the ultimate ituK wou le a smooth surface wat erthldlnp highway Tresuuget planned wisely Macadam came two decodes later and made a alight change In the laying of tho road foundation and gave to such thorough area his namn For a century and a ijaartor the Wisdom of the road engine eta of Limoges and Ayr was justifl edl Then arose a condition they had never figured on a fast moving ve hicle running on broad soft tires The rosin begun to suffer at onco for the following reasons The rubber tire being weft creates no rock dust Itself at does the iron tiro of a wagon and tie very Ufo of these roads demands n constant supply ot that material ft is tho surface binder that keeps the road smoth cracks filled In that maintains tho evenness and binds the rubber stones Into one Impervious mass Every Iron tired wheel does Ita own small quota of good by act ing as a rock dustmaher and a minia ture road roller Tho auto whirring along at dizzy speed simply flattened Its tires against the ground as it sped and the tractive force so exerted hurl ed the precious rock dust Into the air and from where It was swept It to tho adjacent farm and lawns in blind- Ing clouds So pronounced was the mere dust nuisance created in many portions of tho country that real estate decreased in value to an appre ciable extent and farmers complained that the everincreasing dust on their fields vines and trees mads it impos sible for them to sell their harvests at as good prices as formerly When these conditions had been es tablished by scientifically gathered data the Director of the Office of Public Roads set on foot numerous Investigations and ordered many experiments the result of which it is believed will ultimately prove the au tomobllo to be a great benefactor for in the struggle to overcome things find a road surfacing material which makes no dust and needs no dust to maintain its integrity or discover a method of controlling tho dust on tho roads already laid When that Is done one of tho greatest problems of the centuries will have been solved d and humanity will have gained one of the greatest blessings imaginabl Absolutely dustproof thoroughfare would add immeasurably to the con forts of the human taco multiply tho beauty of vast stretches of country add countless millions of wealth to suburban and country property and do much to retard disease for dirt meat disease and the 2150000 miles of highways in tho United States make not less than 90 per cent of the dust which a longsuffering people take into theIr lungs each year I- To the time of present writing no dustproof road surface material cheap enough for use in country districts has been found and the experiments now proceeding are therefore along the second line the controlling of the dust by various methods of sprayln and by the use of binder material In some sections especially throug the great fruit belts of California splendid success in dust suppresslo has been attained by spraying the dirt roads with oils possseslng nsphullc bn sis In other portions of the countr tho wise administering of coal tar preparations has aided to a great extent and drenching with calclui chloride has shown that the dust can bo kept at a minimum Those methods however are not perfect solution of the vast problem of road mainten ance and dust suppression They are merely palliatives and while they are being advocated in such sections of the country as will be Immediate benefited the bigger problem of dis covering an absolute antidote for th action of the automobile is occupy ing the attention of scientists on bell

Indictment against her now pending In the Franklin Circuit Court or rather be such a strong vindication as to clear her of the charge against herBriefly Martin or Rogerson In his affidavit which covers about twenty pages says that what he told Mrs Gentry relative to Youtsey making a confession to him In prison to the effect that ho Youtsey shot Goebel and that Howard and Powers had no connection with the crime was true and that he was forced Ao teryvurda sign a denial after being subjected to torture by certain prison officials This torture ho says consisted of being strung up by the thumb for days and being fed on only bread and water Seeing he says that ho was complete ly at the mercy of his tormentors and that they could visit any kind of in dignities upon him he after suffering torture for several days was willing to sign a denial which prepared was brought to him After this he says that his treatment was more humane He then dwells at some length on tho confession made to him by Yout sey In the prison saying tha this con fession was during snatches of con versation they had and also In letters written to him by Youtsey and pass ed to him on the prison grounds

attorneys a few days ago left for New York It is under stood to procure these letters If they can bo found and if they are as claimed they will undoubtedly throw new light on the Powers and Howard casesThe contention of tho defense at torneys all along has been that Yout fired the fatal shot that killed Senator Goebel and thatHoward and Powers had no part in the commls mission of the crime If these letters which Martin or Rogerson alleges were written to him by Youtsey In which the latterconfesses the crime can be found they will undoubtedly be an important revelation In these now

Superficial Thought and Hasty Judgment Washington April 18ln address- Ing the House today Mr Burton of Ohio practically trad tho present is well as of all oihi seasons of In dustrial or concur rcil depression he icclared were to lw found in Uw die Inctlvo feat ls f a progressive clv llzatlon lic hat of the Untred States vlicK operations largely have to do vlili taluulatlons on future require lenis and where the greatest pro Its are realized from a successful an JdpaUon of prospective conditions Generally speaking he said there were three related causes of dopres ilon public and private extra vngance i lack of harmony between different jranclics of production so that a sur plus of divers classes of commodities exists which cannot readily bo ex hanged for others and the absorp Jon of a capital of a country in mtlcipaftlon of enlarged demands in he future and the hope for greater rewards in providing for some now term of convenience or luxury Such uses of capital he saidmay be illustrated by cases like that of the Hoosac tunnel the subways under Net York City and the rivers adjacent hereto the Panama canal or In general in the change of circulating to fixed capital by the construction of extensive factories building railways ar other public works of any kind The loss of discarded Implements and facilities by reason of Invention and the adoption of Improved appliances have attributed as another factor In conse quence he said many profitable in vestments are lost because newer and more perfect methods supply the demands which heretofore had been sup plied in another way In no other country he declared has it been the custom so much as In ours to throw on the scrap heap ex pensive machinery and other forms of equipment for Industry or transportation Mr Burton asserted that investment in anticipation of prospective needs also caused derangement because of the exceptionally long interval before their completion their tardy utilization after completion and the problematical success of the enterprise undertaken To avoid seasons of depression Mr Burton said it would be necessary to live in some such country as China or Persia Every land which has made rapid strides toward industrial promi nence ho said has at some time suf fered from a severe slackening of activity In business nnd In employment Tho present depression would not compare in severity with that of 18il or that of 1S93 nor did he believe it probable that at any time in the futur the distress in business communities would be so great as in those years Neighborhood Favorite Mrs E D

River Tobacco Or ganization Is it to take the place of the A S of E and if not are we to have two sets of local unions etc These and many other problems which the new departure seems to raise are of vital importance to our people who have made the long fight for jus tice As the new organization voted to leave otf the name of Equity we presume it means to go alone on the same principle as the other tobacco associations in the State and if successful will displace the American I Society of Equity as the history of the other Associations goes to show that their members do not become I united with the A S of E to uny great extent If the Society of Equity is to be perpetuated and it must be unless our people are ready to stake everything on the one product to bacco we are to have two organiza tions attempting to cover the same territory with the Inevitable result that both must fall We are informed that Ohio county did not take part in the new organi zation at Owensboro and that the persons who are named from this coun ty on the Board were placed there without consent THE EAIR TOTER The Hartford Herald in its current Issue makes a desperate effort to convince its readers that we deviated from the truth in a paragraph calling its hand on fair toting with Republi cans Powers Taylor Etc Everyone Svho has read the Hearid during the y j past years knows that it has been the most unfair and went further to grill Republicans about the assassina tion of William Goebel than any other sheet of like compass in the state It cautions us to quote only what It says To refresh the memory of those who play have forgotten the Heralds unholy war on Republicans embracing the assassination of Goe bel and trials following we quote n tot paragraphs only of what it has said As Secretary of State and Taylors trusted lieutenant he Powers must have known much of the plot and plan to kill Goebel Herald September 23 1903 Powers accused of knowledge of murder by fair toter If we were as guilty of complicity in political murder as wo are confident he Taylor is we would use every ar tifice to escape the clutches of the law Herald September 2 19031 Fair toter unequivocally declares Taylon guiltyThere has never been a moment since William Goebel fell a victim to the assassins bullet that It has not I been the belief of every fairminded person that there were many of the Republican party in membersI who knew almost to the Mr Goebel would be shot This was apparent from several Incidents not I the least among which was the arri val of several Ohio county Republican from Frankfort the night before the assassination Herald October 14 19031 Ohio county Republicans are Impliedly accused by fair toter ofj conspiracy to assassinate GoebelINo reasonable person the murder of William Goebel is ohar i gable in the main to the Republican party of Kentucky Its leaders who hold the commission of their constituency devised and engineered the murderous plans which were carried into execution IHerald October 28 19031 All Republicans again accused by fair toterSentiment seems to be growing in Kentucky that the sentence of Caleb Powers convicted of complicity In the I Goebel murder be commuted by Gov Beckham to life impresslonment The Democratic advocates of this Interces sion do not claim to believe that Pow ers In innocent in any sense but they think It would be an injustice to I hang him while others evidently more guilty than he are still at large and unpunished IHerald December 9 19031 Taylor again declared guilty by this fair toter One of the most disgraceful Inci dents of political degeneracy + was the act of a portion of Kentucky Repub Bean delegation at Chicago in march ing to the Indiana headquarters and thanking Gov Durbln for + refus ing to surrender W S Thor to the Kentucky authorities Herald June 29 19041 Every act of kindness shown Taylor or Powers is condemned by tai toterAll the evidence goes to prove that Caleb Powers was the

to testify in Powers last I trial If Taylor is in no wise guilty why should he need a pardonWhY should he fear conviction Herah August 21 19071 Fair toter seems fairly to dream ill of Taylor and PowersAfter seven years silence on this especial point Caleb Powers memory has at last come to himso he says He now says he has at last discovered and is now able to point out the man who killed Goebel Strange this facte a should have been hidden so long and that Powers shouh not have been able to discover it soon er Strange Indeed It There will be icicles on the sun reaching to the earth

one of the Re publican agitators at Frankfort at the time tHerald October 20 1907J Fair toter continues to see in its dreams Republican assassins Let us hope that the oath he Gov Willson took to

brethren of Ohio countyAllow me to Introduce to you the Green River Tobacco Growers As sociation of Daviess county Kentucky An association composed of the inde pendents dumpers dupes and dupesteta of Daviess county Kentucky An as sociation that hasnt promised to do anything nor never will do anything except to make a schedule of prices that will starve the poor farmer and his family to death An associatio- nIf I mistake not that has behind it and in it the power of the trust an association that is as utterly destitute of Equity principles as Hades is of religious spirit We have struggled for four long years to bring about con ditions whereby the tobacco farmer could be decently compensated for la expendedWe local county and State unions and maintained them with out the assistance of any dumper or independent tobacco grower Kentucky blcng a strongly organized State In the American Society of Equity we had hoped that Its influence would ex tend to other States like Illinois and Iowa that produce heavily of live stock so that they might become more ef fectually organized so that eventually those who have been so zealous in the cause of Equity in Kentucky that are not producers of tobacco might be partially compensated for their labor and expense But the tide seems to have changed That spirit of selfishness that is in all mankind seems to have asserted it self to such an extent that we fear that the poorer class of people in the Green River district of Kentucky will be reduced to destitution and serf dom If the new association did not contemplate damnable rascality why did it not recognize the American So clety of Equity and base the representation on the membership of that society in place of on the amount of tobacco produced You Dances coun ty fellows may be superior t6 us In point of wealth You may be superior to us in point of intellect and shrewd ness but we think we have been dug up out of these hills and hollows long enough to know pure and unadulterate gaul when we see it We know that there are some just as good Equly men In Daviess county as there are in existence for we are personally ac quainted with some of them but the power that dominates the new association is the power of the devil as wo see it Now to the remainder of the Equity in Ohio county lets ask our President to call a meeting of the County Union and so far as we are concerned repudiate this whole affair Lets be loyal to the organization that made It possible for us to obtain good prices for our tobacco and stand by It until it is as dead as a cock in a pit even if it does have to die by the strangulation process We had much rather of course It would die instan taneously but we find that she is a hard animal to give a dead shot es pecially when you shoot her in the stomach altogether We bid our friends in Daviessc oun ty farewell and hope success will come to them but we do not care about hay- Ing any of them to handle our to bacco in Ohio cuonty so long as we have men that understand the business TrulyWATT TAYLOR Matanzas Ky April 221908 An Irrepressible Conflict There is now in the Democratic party as for twelve years past a fundamental trouble that has not been settled but that will have to be cleared away some day with a severe wrench to the party It may be pear sible during another quadrennial period to edge around the matter and defer the final trial of strength but It must come at last according to the nature of human affairs A large number of Democrats have never been reconciled to Mr Bryan and his Popu= llstic theories and never will be They hesitate to break away definitely hoping that something will occur to end the Bryan spell on the party or that the man himself will weaken in his remarkable persistency but no relief of this kind is in sight at pres ent Prominent Democrats are reluc tant to try for the nomination know in that if they should get It they woulc suffer the fate of Parker as there Is no doubt that Bryan would knife them in this campaign and at the polls in the same fashion Bryan was beaten in 1896 by 600 000 and in 1900 by 800000 Through the defection of the Bryan support Parker was overwhelmed by 2500000 These are the horns of the dilemma Defeat awaits the party either way But It does not seem to realize that It must tear loose from Bryan posi tively before it can hope to command confidence in the natlonel field This sundering must inevitably come but when or how does not appear at this time Perhaps another defeat will n 9i Hi bring It about but that Bryan will ever voluntairly let go of the party or genuinely support any man for president whom he could not name or cdn trol is improbable When the party summons courage enough to defy his leadership and act for Itself it will bring the situation to a point No doubt it will be stormy but storms clear the atmosphereGlobe Demo crat Sunday School Institute If you are a Sunday School worker of course you are planning to attend the Institute to be

be explained at this session THE BOARD OF CONTROL MEETS NEXT SATURDAY No Curtailment of the Crop Will Be Attempted by Growers This Year Owensboro Messenger says Present indications are that every tobacco grower In the Green River district will be left at liberty this year to grow as much or as little to bacco as he pleases The old or ganizations found it practically im possible to do any effective acreage work and abandoned the attempt some time ago The newly organized Green River Tobacco Growers association came into existence too late to do thoroughly effective work along this line for the present season Many persons have already made contracts with tenants and otherwise and these It Is feared would remain out side the organization rather than be bound by an Iron clad rule that forced them to break their contracts There will however bo a general recommendation from the association that all growers keep their planting of tobacco within reasonable limita tions It is believed that this will be effective in a majority of cases The man who has embarrassed htinsel by limiting his production of tobacco and holding It after produced for the past two or three years will be given a chance under the new arrangement to get on his feet Tho board of control will meet at the Columbus hotel in Oweirsboro at 1 oclock Saturday afternoon The working arrangements of the associa tion will be completed nt that meet ing and it is expected that work will be commenced immediately thereafter to secure tobacco to the pool Men will be sent out into the coun ties to make a canvass of the growers and it is believed that a much larger per cent of the tobacco grown in the Green River district will be pooled this year than ever before The pool will be a selling pool There Is no sort of disposition on the part of anybody to pool the tobacco rehandle and warehouse it Public Sale I will offer for sale at public auc tion at my residence In Williams Mines Saturday May 2 one Mare and

80 years- and live to be20 years old explained recently that longevity was only a question of sour milk His rules are Drink sour milk or pure butter milk two or three time a day avoid too strenuous living take plenty of exercise obey rigidly the laws of hy glens keep a clear conscience love God and be square with your fellow man drink some more sour milk Bishop Fallows is a great believer In a newly published book by Prof Elle MetBChnlkoff one of the professors In the Pasteur Institute In Paris and the greatest exponent in the world of the theories of Darwin Jletschnl koff points out that the reason nun do not live to a great age is because under modern condltons the arteries harden with advancing age due to deposits of calcareous substances- He has discovered that the antidote for this condition Is sour milk The sheathes of the arteries are softened by the milk Bishop Fallows also says In the Old Testament just after the flood the prophet of God said And the days of mn aare 120 years It was centuries later that the Psalmist read The days of man are three scores and ten yearsNow as to the scientific theory research has proved that the multiple of abolescence in animals Is sex That Is they ordinarily live six times the length of their infancy Man reaches maturity at 20 years MultiplJ ing that by six gives 120 years the na tural age of mana Suffering and Dollars Saved E S

hand over It and the wart all go away They too show the march of science and the accompanying progress of the race toward the ultimate goalSome forty or fifty years ago the faIvorltesteel a piece of fresh meat rub the wart with it then burry the meat and as the meat perished so did the wart This operation to bo effectual must be carried out with the utmost secrecy from beginning to undoA bur ial at cross roads is preferred Then there was a trick with a stolen string The boy ties us ninny knots in it as there wore warts there was burial relief and this again was done secretly There wore buys who rubbed milk weed on their warts with good results The stolon meat remedy Is a very old one There were variants When Bacon was a youth In Parisbefore- he wrote the work of Shakespeare ArItemusambassador rubbed his warts with lard and then nailed the lard with the fat toward the sun on a post of her chamber window which was to the south The warts went xaway within five weeks but like Catallne thoy returned Bacon who would not have lied about a little like this also mentioned the rubbingI of warts with a green elder and then burying the stick to rot muck 11101vlncospin was stuck In tho wart then withdrawn and a wart plurced with it till there was win and then tho pin was pushed Into Uie tree Or tho wart was croseed with a pit three tines the pin was stuck In the tree and the wart loft the hand for tho tree But a charm was broken In each case Ash Irtu aihfn tree Pray buy these watts of me In other provinces the warts were rubbed with the Inside of a bean shell while the victim recited As this bean shall rot away So my warts shall soon decay In Shropshire each wart as touch ed with n gravel stone The stones wero tied in a bag and thrown away and this was spoken Warts warts go away In a month a week and a day Or beans were stolen one wart wrapped up in a paper carriedI to the crossing of roads and dropped The afflicted walked away without looking behind him But the charm of charms was this You caught moonshine In n bright sliver basin and washed your hands with it Sir Conelmo Digby said this was an In M fallible remedy often used Sir Thomes Browne admitted the prac tice and did not disapprove South eys Daniel Dove was not benefited by the cols moisture of the moon be cause he used a brass basin not silver which Is the lunar metal And now in Brooklyn a matt simply passed his hand over warts and they disappeared Truly this Is a world of wonders In a few years boys may have no warts at all Yet there have been men who were proud of those

the Prevention of Halt Because of the terrible damage wrought by hail In some parts of Eu rope scientists have directed their at tention to deslglng a means by which the outbreak of hall could be preven ted and some success has been obtain ed by the use of hall guns firing a shot of either gunpowder or acety lene against the hail cloud and thus dispersing It Though a number of societies for the installation of these guns have been founded both In Southern France and Italy their usefulness is not uni versally accepted Other experimenters have tried rockets and these have been adopted at same places Now It would probably be mqre ef ficient to attack the cloud as at were from its very seat than to act upon It from the ground In fact as far back as 1847 Arago and Dupuls Bolcourt suggested the use of a small captive balloon made entirely of copper so as to be impervious and the surface of which would be covered with sharp points The suggestion was not triedThe same idea has now been taken up by two Belgian aeronauts Capt Marga and Mr Adhermar de la Hault who however use a free bnloou carry Ing some powerful explosvie such as dynamite or guncotton which Is Igni ted by some attachment as soon as the balloon has penetrated Into the hallcarrying clouds The balloon used by the experimenters Is pearshaped and of three cubic meters capacity When filled with hydrogen as it has an ascensional force of more than four pounds Five hundred grammes of an explosive with a nitrocellulose basis designed by Capt Marga are carried together with a slow match Experimental ascents have proved successful and show that In the case of a gathering stormcloud will be pos sible to so time a charge and direct a balloon as to obtain an explosion in a favorable postllon for dispersing the clouds The explosive suspended at some distance below the balloon does not Injure it and the latter may bo recovered and used again I Some more extensive experiments will shortly be undertaken at tho meteorogical station at Mogi moat which has been recently installed by Mr de la Hault especially for the pur poses of investigating the behavior of thunder storms and hail Quirks of Queer

ot the danger that menaces their female offspring from girlhood to marriage Perhaps the most salutary lesson that could be Impressed upon those charged with the responsibility of rearing girls is the fact that there is a danger Jfle disposition to trust ones own children is so inherent in every parental heart that It Is difficult to arouse them to a sense of danger Every parent should be awak ened to the fact that the amorous pas sion is both a natural and a necessary one It is natures Imperative to the procreation of the race and when its restraint must be trusted to the in discretion of youth parental oversight becomes a farreaching responsibility Far be It from me to bring an eadlct ment against the modesty nnd virtue of Ohio county girls who are as fair l and sweet and good as ever graced the human race but since angels fell the fairest and purest of earth may not be wholly immune from fulling No render of this essay needs to go out of his or her community to find one or more victims of that gullded tempter that forever follows the foot steps of innocent maidenhood Everyone of these moral outcasts now scorned and shunned was one day as pure as the snow that crests the mountains peak and could justly curse her parents for her fall I tried to raise her right is the mourn ful comment that many a brokenhearted parent makes I triedAyoy- ou allowed her footsteps to follow close along the crumbling precipice and then upbraided her for her fall Of course you did not know the treacherous sands would slip but this is the danger of which I write By way of fitting myself for the very task of which I am advising othVr par ents I have given careful attention- to the girls whose misfortunes have come to my knowledge and In almost every case I am convinced that parental Ignorance or indifference usually the former wan at fault Undoubtedly the greatest menace to a young ladys chastity lies in her being much in her sweethearts company alone especially in long walks or drives at night aslthelegendary knights the grosser passions of human nature germinate In hotI beds of opportunity The softening influence of love however pure tends over toward a dangerous familiarity It Is a common saying that great thieves began by taking small things and the same insidious influence works the mortal ruin of many a once noble I woman The fateful consequences ofi impure conduct should be daily impressed upon the minds of our girls from an early age so that they may approach womanhood with a sense of honor of charInettrfemale Is a matter for the gravesfccon cern to every parent To ono who has given earnest thought to such matters j there Is no more painful spectacle than to see parents carelessly allowing their j asIsociato exIpectfrom men already trained in the black I art of seduction But after they have been from childhood daily lesson taughtI tue and been fitly warned of lag shame and living sorrow of those who fall and persuaded to

all factions had sufficient representation They were found to be fairly represented He then called for the counties and found all seven of he represented The chairman stated that it had been agreed that the vote on the con stitution should be taken without de bate At the conclusion of tho reading its adoption was mov ed by F K Moseley and scouded by J S Mullican S R Ewing objected to an amendment adopted at the A S of E meeting Friday providing that on April 18 190D a vote shall be taken at a mass meeting in each county as to whether the organiza tion shall become a part of the A S of E Ho said that the constitu tion had been agreed upon at a conference of delegates from the three factions that any or all of them fac tions had the right either to ac cept or reject the constitution agreed upon bo tho committee but that no faction had a right to amend It without the consent of of the others Chairman Berry sustained Mr Ewings point ruling that the present assemblage must stand by or reject the proposed constitution Tho situation looked pretty squal ly A prominent Equity official walked up to chairman Berry and said We had better adjourn right now The games up The motion to adopt the constitu tion was put and carried by practi cally unanimous vote Mr Moseley insisted on a vote on the amendment John P Foster moved to table the motion to adopt the amendment and practically ev ery man in the house voted to table lit This had the effect of killing tho amendment and the constitu tion was adopted as it came from the hands of the committee of twen tyseven A

support for the Impression that the early morning hours are in any way more wholesome or healthy than later periods of the day Except In summer time they are apt to be damp foggy chilly and among the least desirable hours of daylglht It is quite true that during the summer there is a sense of exhil aration about being abroad in these early morning hours but this evapo rates with the dew and is apt to be succeeded by a corresponding depres sion and loss of working power later in the day I have been observing my friends and patients for the past 20 years In this respect and am Inclined to the opinion that not a little of the depression and nervousness which commonly develop in hot weather Is due to excessive exposure to light from habits of early rising Inherited from agricultural ancestors not coun teracted by three to four hours rest In darkened rooms In till middle of the day Secondly that the exhilaration experienced during the early morning hours Is an expensive luxury which has to be paid for later in tho day In fact I have found that as a general rulo to put It very roughtly the busi ness or professional man who rises an hour before 730 or 8 goes to bed or loses his working power an hour and a half earlier In the evening Each individual has in the beginning of his day about so much working power stored up in his brain and muscle cells If he uses this up with great rapidity In the early morning hours he naturally ex hausts his stock the sooner in the afternoonIt a matter of when a ma wishes to be at his best If his oc cupation is of such a character that h can clear off tho brunt of his work in the early morning hours then let him rise early If on the other hand ho requires full vigor and of mind and body in the readinessI of the day or at night then rise later to get It Even muscle work it is false economy to work too long hours American Ma gazine Facts Fron New York Onefifth of the immigrants come from Itally There are 300 men arrested each week

thissanddvery ally changed the order of businew in the pricing and seeping of our sam plo crop tobacco Every one knows that it has been customary for the farmers to let everybody else price his own goods to the tillers of time soil and when the latter had anything to sell the other parties would price their the farmers goods also But as a public speaker said one writerea good mo Theres a good time coming This organization has certainly been an excellent schooling for all classes of people It has taught the farmer I that he must organize If he expects- to keep step with the time it has al so taught the business world that the largest class of people on the globe Is stepping into the arena along line of public commercial business and this class hereafter will be a great factor In

watching the trend of current history Organize Organize This cry Is heard from Maine to Mexico and from the Lakes to the Gulf And echos tako it up and the hills and valleys roll back the sound with

tended to vote all the time Preceding this vote while the Republicans were struggling to seat their two mem bors Mr Beckhams friends were charging that forty Republicans had been traded off In the Interest of the race for United State Senator Mr Roberts lu his newspaper substanti ally Indorsing that charge He should know If he dues not that his paper had no Influence on that body He now says that my election Is a party calamity because It was had at the expense of the defeat of the County Unit Bill Immediately following my election ho sent the following dispatch Lexington Ky Feb 28 1908 W 0 Bradley Frankfort Ky Con gratulations on accomplishing what seemed Impossible and especially on fact that party pledges were first made good Signed SAM J ROBERTS This dispatch was sent after tho at tempted shelving as he now charges In the House So It is Mr Roberts congratulated me on a public calamity to the Republican party Possibly the only calamity that will result from that election will be a calamity to Mr RobertsIn desire to Injure me he even goes far enough to charge that the Unit Dill was defeated by Republicans In the Senate In other wordshe holds the Republican party responsible for Its defeat He refers to the remakablo coincidence that three whisky men voted for me for the Senate falling to mention the tact that a Democrat who voted for the County Unit Bill also supported me except for whose vote I could not have won It fstrue that nineteen Demo crats and three Republicans voted for the twothirds rule in the Senate which defeated the County Unit Dill while ten Republicans nnd three De mocrats voted against it Even had the three Republicans voted against the rule the vote would have been nineteen for and sixteen against which would have of course adopted the twothirds rule Had even onehalf the Democrats Joined the Republicans the rule would have been defeated Time and again it has been stated by Demcoratlc Senators and Demo cratic newspapers that this vole by the Democrats was justifiable In order to prevent the passage of a redistrict ing and other bills favorable to the Republicans And yet Mr Roberts who claims to be a Republican Is ready willing und anxious to charge the defeat of that measure on tho Re publican party as well as myself Now it must be borne In mind that while the Republican platform declar ed In favor of the things In its platform As I remenber there were nine resolutions that regarding the County Unit Dill being the last Some of these measures were of much more Importance than the passage of the County Unit Bill because they In volved the liberty of the citizen and a just and fair basis of representation Notwithstanding tills an effort was made to have the Republicans sup ordinate everything in their platform to the County Unit Bill Those per sons who came to Frankfort to workI In the Interest of the County Unit Bill who were approached on the subject declined to assist the Republicans in their election of a Senator declined to assist them In the determination of their contests declined to assist them in the passage of a fair redlstric ting bill declined to assist them In the passage of a fair election Mil de clined to assist them In the passage of a fair registration bill and demand ed that If necessary all things should be subordinated to the passage of a County Unit Bllll In other words they demanded that this pledge should be kept to the exclusion of any one or all of the pledges in the Republi can platform- As to what has been said through the columns of the Evening Post I have no comment to make except to say that It Is a Democratic newspaper was at all times In favor openly and above board of the election of Mr Beckham and never attempted to carry water on both shoulders and that It Is not expected that it should be pleased with my election The anoymous letter signed Old Line Rpeublican and which has been sent throughout the State possi bly needs no notice for a man who will write an anonymous letter to lur lure another Is equaled in cowardice and dishonor alone by ono who would circulate It For this reason Ihave not undertaken to go into a length dental of Its cnotents
