Come and see for yourself GRISHAN INMAN HICKMAN KY THL HICKMAN COURIER Proprssvl 5 GEO W WILSON Lessee and Editor PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY v =AX UNJUST ACCtiSATIOX One of the speakers at the mass meeting Saturday stated in effect that the Courier was run in conjunction with the Ful- tonr Leader and that its editor j was aware of the iniquitous proceeding known as railroading the Hargrove bill through the legis lature These were not the ex act words used but that is the impression left by the speaker upon his auditors Upon this subject we desire no controversy because there is ground for none but simply wish to enter a de nial in toto of both charges The Courier has never been run in conjunction yith any paper least of all the Fulton Leader Neither did its editor know aught of the Hargrove bill until he like many others read of it in the newspapers Both insinua tions are entirely without foun dation the gentleman who made them being no doubt misin formed as he was not here when the news was first received And another thing If the gentleman concerned will read the Courier of last week he will find that this paper was the first and only papqr in the county or out of it to cry out against the billand advocate throttling it In our last issue we said in part It is without doubt the most absurd bill ever introduced into any legislature It was conceiv edand introduced solely for the benefit of Fulton at the expense of Hickman and it can safely be said that twothirds of the voters of Fulton county are strenuous ly opposed to it It should never havo been introduced but now that iit has gone beyond the first stage it should be strangled be fore it has an opportunity to l0 the damage it is intended to concerted action on the part o the western portion of the coun ty this can certainly be done Let every man put a plug in Mvliero he thinks it will do the most good and the bill can yet be killed J These statements we believWe to be plain and to the lendeavoredand believed like the gentlemant in question that plenty of time yet remained in which to kill it and that by concerted action ont 1 the part of the western portion cf the county this could be done The Courier is the only paper ir the county that said aught against the billonly our limit ed command of language pre venting us from striking harder And it seems to us that in the face of suclian array of facts it is unjust to cst asper sions npon us after we have done our bestt for the interests of Hickman We do not propose however to allow this statement to interfere with the performance of our duty toward Hickman We pro pose to continue along the line lilforiMvhieh the Courier has al ways beenready and willing to defend the town and its people against all comers without re ward nor hope thereof and without waiting to see which way the cat will jump before speaking out Time Clinton Gazette pokes fun at Hickman for allowing the Hargrove bill to pass the legisla ture and says that we hastened to lock the stable door after the horse was stolen We haventt the temerity to call the advocates of that bill horsethieves but since the Gazette has referred to the matter in that manner we- will say that there was a striking similarity in the method of pro cedure in both instances The Paducah NewsDemocrat has named Ed Walker of the Clinton Gazette as one of the committee of one hundred to select a name for Kentucky in the Hall of Fame at Washington Theposition is without remuneration but we trust that Mr Walker will accept it He is one of the brightest newspaper men in Western

most delightful oyster supper1 wound up with a course of delicious ice cream and cake were served and was one of the most enjoyable features of the oeea sion Much nest was added to the supper by the

erected by Woe Roper near Rush Cmek was demolished the church at Mt Hermon was moved from its fqun jdation Marshall Rice near State Line had his kitchen and shining room blowji away the kale shed and several burns at Woodland Mills were raised to the ground the church at Union was damaged to time extent of an hundred or more dollars five to bacco barns near Fulton were unroofed and the tobacco some what damaged mind fences and smaller buildings in the pathof the storm were mowed down or blown away like so much chaff From other sections of the state come reports of great damage done to town and country and in one instance in Eastern Kentucky an entire village was demolished One young man living near Hop kinsville was struck by lightning and instantly killed and stock of different kinds was killed in near ly all portions of the state It is impossible to estimate the dam age done as the storm was so general i mad covered such a vast ter ritory but it is not improbabl thatnt will run

part of the city Here In the course of an hour one may see nearly a thousand women pass in various stages of intoxication nearly all of them look Ing either for a saloon or a pawnshop which by the way are usually close togetherWhen once a woman begins to drink quotationintrue after an evening in the slums Old grayheaded women with weak dissipated faces and torn rags for scanty covering reel through the streets begging coppers with which to buy more drinks Young men them selves the worse for liquor exclaim Give the barefooted old grannies a pennywe hope well never come to that The middleaged topers are the coarsest of all their hair matted in tawny snarls dresses halffastened and their speech too foul for repeti tion Some of the worst characters ap pear in striped black and white flannel petticoats and these women are called the Pettlcoaters One Petticoater was on an unuw ally high spree on the Saturday night the writer went through the Bridget as Bridge Gate street Is called Mad with drink this fighting woman rushed I home to her attic put out her children and with a hatchet smashed the furni ture and even tore to pieces the chil drens clothes The oldest boy 11 went to the police but in the meantime the infuriated mother had nailed up the door and defied them to enter Thus in oQe nights intoxication the Petticoater had broken up her home destroyed the household treasures and last her children into the street The young women for the most part 1 wear coarse shawls and with great deftness they wind them first ItboutII their babies and then about themselves I Every young woman seems to be a mother but they pay scant attention to the little ones about the only pro 1 Xectlon a baby gets being the support from the shawl I have seen girls of 11 and 13 M intoxicated that they could not walk straight Even the little girls of six and seven congregate outside the saloons waiting for a peep in or hoping that mother will let them have audrap The little waifs are barefooted and halfnaked The droop in the corner of the mouth ol many of these little people indicates plainly the depression caused by cruel a ty and neglect together with ill health and hunger Little slum angels born with an appetite for drink they have a hard time ahead of them if they grow to womanhood The cause of the degradation Is the wretched home life laziness and in temperance Thirty thousand families in Glasgow live in oneroomed flats Sometimes indeed six or seven fam ilies live In one long room with only a chalk mark or piece of rope divid ing the rented space Huddled to getber in such massesmen women and children only the grossest Immor ality can result Shelter houses are a now being built rapidly however where men may find a comfortable nights lodging for a pittance About these shelters on Saturday nights men are gathered by the score while women and children stand near by begging their husbands for coppers There are a few shelters for women also where for eight cents in Amer ican money a woman may stay over night and have a place to cook her own tea and breakfast But these shelters do not take the place of a home for no provision Is made for the children A little one may sleep with the mother till It is five years old but the beds are narrow like the bunks of a steamer and generally there are half a dozen youngsters The shelters how ever are an improvement over the ten ements and in them people are obliged to live decently v A large home has been established for married men with children who wave drunken wives The wee kid dies as the Scotch express It are taken care of at an absurdly small sumt and the father is with them at night This picture of sin and shame would be untrue to life did it not contain some bright patches here and there Besides these shelters and institutions there are pleasant parks In the very heart of the slums a fine peoples pal ace and art gallery and opportunity for every woman who will try to live clean One home took Inla

Students I A bulletin recently issued by Colo rado dolls a corrects the popular er ror that there are only a few kindsl of bees Some people indeed think that there are only three the honey berg buinble bee and a smaller wild ape dies According to the authority just quoted no less than 1878 different species of wild bees have been described from North Americathat la Includ ing all of the country north of Panama up to the present day When one comes to study the habits and struc ture of all these bees says the New York Tribune It is possible to under stand why the varieties ate so numer ous The pollen of flowers has to be cat ried principally by insects that of one flower to other flowers of the same I sort in order to bring about the fertilization and production of seed Of all the insect carriers the bees are the j most important They visit the flow j era for nectar and pollen to store upII in nests for tbir young When doing they carry the dtuulike pollen from flower to flower 1leaving a little I of that previously gathered each time ji uay alight on a blossom Now suppose that all bees visited Indiscriminately overy sort of flower it would continually happen that the pollen of one species of plant was I left on the flower of a quite different species where it would be alfogethei useless It is desirable therefore that each kind of bee should visit1 one par ticular kind of plant or at any rate should prefer certain kinds This proves to be more or less the case and there are many bees that never visit more than one sort of flower The num ber of flowers is very great and con sequently it to not surprising to find that there are many sorts of bees In numerous instances the mouth part of the bees is exactly suited to the flowers they visit Thus certain kinds with very long tongues can suck the nectar from long tubular flowers such as the yellow flowered currant while others with short tongues can make use of shallow flowers It is the case of the fox and the stork over again Although the dtscrilwd North Amer ran bees are BO numerous it Is asserted that the entomologists do not know half of those existing Indeed it 1Is not im possible that the North American continent with the West Indies poarEses as many as 5000 species Thus the op portunity for the Ktudeat of the f in sect is very great He Is absolutely certain to had la almost any part of the country specie wholly new to science dttrtag hit first seasons collecting In Colorado for Instance It iit probable that almost any spring nr Dimmer day de voted to the search would yield new ands In New Mexico up to today 505 species have been found and of those 315 cult be sUed new The discovery and dccerlptlon of nets species are however only the beginning i of the work After this comes the most interesting partthe study of the nesting habits and the relation between the bees and the flowers So the field becomes a very wide one and seems ijractlcally limitless White the oppor tulltletf for study are so great and jf course open to all who have the tlTtf comparatively few can be expected i to fto much In ftpiology There is no reason why many jtauld pot interest themselves so far as O make collection or obtain specimen A for the nse of students but only a few will have the seal industry and patienc to obtain a real grasp of the subject There are at present only about 13 active students

prevalence At the old Strong place on Troy road some small outbuildings were overturned a few trees blown down and a large ad vertisement of Smith Amberg was carried from its fastenings into the road On the Hon R T Tylers place the damage was more serious as some of the chim neys on his beautifulresidence were razed and the caps from others blown oil Two trees onI his lawn were blown down the intensity of the storm while it lasted much more damage was anticipated GOOD ROADS MOVEMENT The good roads promoters have advanced so far in the move ment as to bring to the attention of Congress the conclusion reach ed by them at St Louis last vear Their aim is to secure govern went aid in building up the roads of the country In this connect ion we will add thatno county or state can expect to share in this improvement unless steps are taken by the citizens of one or the other looking toward an im provement of their several highways While the roads of Fulton county are in much better condition than they were four or five years ago yet there are times when theyre almost impassable The writer was very courteously sent an elaborate invitation numerously signed by officers of commercial bodies and railway organizations as also of ficers of the Louisiana Purchase Exposition to attend the Good Roads Convention held in St Louis last April He broached the subject to a county official inquiring as to what he thought of having a representative from this district in that convention His reply was very flippant not to say discourteous1 ftpd bore J with it the impression that he c was not interested in so trifling a matter as good roads County and state officials reflect the wishes of their constituents the wants and needs of the latter should be their study and their aim should be to advance the in terests of the community The people ofFulton county look to those whom they elect to serve them to take advanced positions in public improvements consist ent with economy Instead of wrangling over spoils measuring each other to see who has the strongest pull and bending the knee in humble subserviency to the wishes of political cliquee they should be abreast of the tide of improvement that has set in in the twentieth century and give the people what they are entitled to at their hands viz honest earnest effort in whatever is of so vital interest as good roads anJ all other improvements of whatsoever name or nature 41 Official ermine very often falls on very incompetent shoulders but it is also as quickly removed when used to repair political fences instead
