seeing a ladder proped up against a building over the sidewalk will stop and walk around the fool of the ladder or else will cross the itreel In the middle of the block Very few of them will admit that walking under the ladder brings bad luck but say they do not want to take the chances of paint being dropped on their nice new clothes But you dont catch me walking under the ladder I had occasion to go to Paducah and it acing such a long trip I thought it well to take an umbrella along It came about that a long ladder was standing across the sidewalk There was no one on it and the paint would not work I took the chance on luck shut my eyes so as not to see the ladder and went ahead Of course it happened I did not butt into an old gentlemen knock him down get arrested by the police and looked up in the city Jail But the bad luck came anyway I lost that um brella and when I got to the hotel tc register there it was in big letters Friday June 13th There was no use trying to get around coming home I started It came up a rain nnd f got soaking wet You cant reason with me about the lad der During the past few days lad den have been over the pavement n front of the Hlckman Grocery Co They were put there for good luck that is to say that they were painting the front of the building to make an attractive appearance in hopes of attracting customers One evening an old gentleman of good appearance came walking along on the pavement Everything from his toes to crown evi fenced knowlege lie was a walking illustration of the fact that some men had beet known to get rich by attending to their own business Such was the air of education and ntelllgence about him that even the people around the corner knew that tfisdoip has approaching He did not see the ladder until too late alas he stopped shocked and horrified What could be done The hum of business ceased Thepeopte topped in sudden silence wondering what awful calamity mightt he irht pending The man put a look of csjgnallon on his face turned walked back under the ladder and then across the street We arc not given to boasting but- we are proud the farmer boyoC this yloinijy They are with rare

was of the opinion that In some respects the salaries of the cabinet officers were too low He knew the vicepresidents salary was too low as was the salary ot the speaker of the house Ho thought the salary paid a member of con gress was also too low but as for the president he believed his salary was sufficient phasepthen te was too much traveling about not ly by the president but by members of

traveling fund He believed much of tne misunderstanding that grows up and which makes nearly all the political bitterness that exists in American public life is due to the lack of understanding

Decision of the Senate Committee Washington June 11The IM Jority and minority of the commit tee on privileges and elections in the case of Senator Reed Smeot of Utat were presented in the senate tin former by Senator Harrows declaring that Mr Smoot Is rapt entitled to his seat and the latter by Senator Foraker taking the opposite view At the same time Senator Bailey who Iis a member of the committee stated that while he concurred m thi view of the majority that Mr Smoot is cot entitled to his seat he held the opinion that Mr Smut t could not be deprived of his seat under the constitution except by a reseJuften of expulsionMr also gave notki that he would call up the case at theI earliest possible moment consistent with the public business Senator Smoot was present in the senate chamber when the reports were presented He smlleM broadly when Senator Dally made his stateI sunestedII thirds would be necessary to vacate the seat of the Utah senator The reasons for the action of the senate committee on privileges and elections in declaring by a majority vote that Reed Smoot is not entitled to aseat in the senate as senator from Utah are stated in a report submitted to the senate by Chairman Burrows and signed by anumber of Senators as follows t That Mr Smoot iis one of a set of a perptuatlne body of men known as the first presidency and twelve apostles of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints com monly known as the Mormon church that these men claim divine author ity to control the members of said church In all things temporal as well as spiritual this authority is and has been for several years past so exercised by the said first presi dency and twelve apettles as to en courage the practice of polygamy and polygamous cohabitation in the state of Utah and elsewhere con trary to the constitution and laws cl the state of Utah and the law of the land that the said first presidency and twelve apostles do now control and for a long time past have coo trolled the political affairs of the state of Utah and have thus brought about a union of church and state contrary to the constitution of said state of Utah and contrary to the constitution of the United States and the said Reed Smoot came here not as the accredited representative of the state of Utah in the senate of the United States but of the chief hierarchy which controls the church and has usurped the functions of the state in said state of Utah Miss Hattie Mai Shumate of Newhim isi visiting relatives here Mr II C Helm left Monday for LouisvilleP of Walnut

bo allowed to come in together and that the referendum would be worked on New Mexico and Arizona But Uncle Joe is mightily set in his way and he is going to insist on New Mexico and Arizcna being railroaded into statehood even if one or both of them are opposed to it It has been said in print that the Speaker would rather leave all four territories out in the cold than to allow two of them to come in without the other two This is not true lie and the other Re publicans of the House would like to have this believed and theywill make a show ef thinking that way as long as they can But the fact Is that they would rather make sure of getting only two Democratic Sena tors out of Oklahoma and Indian Territory now than to run the risk of getting four later in the game It may be taken as tolerably certain that the two territories named will be admitted as one state at this ses sion More New Books for the Hickman College Library We are informed by P of Gabby hat a movement is on foot

Vreeland far- Secretary of State So much encouragement has been given Hubert Vreeland our present active and progressive young Commtulonerof Agriculture to offer himself again as a candidate for a State Office that after mature consideration he has decided to become a candidate for Secretary of State It certainly looks like he has won for himself the backing of the farm ers of Kentucky for whatever he my seek and in recognition of his efforts in their behalf since his election as State Commissioner thousands of them have urged him to offer for another State office since the Coq stitution makes him ineligible for re election Mr Vrerland has accom plished something in an office that was created for the farmers but which had been of very little benefit to them and it is refreshing to the Democrats of Kentucky when they find public servants who devote all their time and thought to fulfilling the duties of their office with energy intelligenceMr Is the ycungest of the present State officials and until the last State election had never been a candidate for office Al thongh it was his first appearance he won his nomination for Commissioner of Agriculture by a majority of 26000 next to the largest majority received by any candidate in the State primary although opposed by two prominent candidates who made most vigorous campaigns Mr Vreeland has a personal acquaintance probably not surpassed by any other young man in Kentucky extending to scores and hundreds in every one of the 119 counties in Ken lucky lIe is a brother of John W Vreeland publisher of the Farmers Home Journal and at the head of the Democratic Executive Committee in Louisville and Jefferson county and of Graham Vreeland managing editor of the Courier Journal who for ten years was tho Legislative correspondent of the CouricfJjounul at Frankfort The Democratic nominations for State offices will be made again by State primary in November and Mr Vreeland has begun an active cam paign Up to the present time he has no opposition Accidentally Shot at Fulton Sunday at Iteelerton Ky twelve miles north of Fulton Mrs Lee Her ing accidentally shot ad perhaps fatally wounded her sister Miss Addle Wadkins The ladles were examining a pistol in a store owned by Lee Herring While in Mrs Herrings hands the weapon was In some unaccountable manner dis charged The bullet a 38caliber struck Miss Wadkins in the forehead penetrated the skull and came out at the back of her head She fell senseless to the floor apparently dead The frantic screams from Mrs Herring and the report of the pistol brought people from every direction Medical aid was hastily summoned and after a hasty exami nation the physicians found Miss Wadkius still alive Heroic meas ures were adopted to save the girls

new and whole some aiid inspiring influences It should stand wide in heritable wel cone to friends The home life that is narrow and selfish Is dull and enervating There is not such a great amount of happiness in the wqrld even at the best that we should risk losing it by our own misdeeds and ill nature There are many people in life who may be likened to a briar bush when one comes too near he gets stung by thorns but each Individual should remember that he himself U sometimes thorny and apt to Inflict wounds Therefore each on sboul j be more lenient toward the other remembering that the more one strives against such things the deeper they penetrate and the more painful wounds they make A spark of flreif left to Itself will eventually die out but If it nursed and fuel added behold

LeafChronicle of 22 ult there appeared a lengthy article in reference to plantbed scrap ing Now I presume this article Is from the pen of that arch traitor M V Ingram and as treachery not enough he must add insult to injury by now trying to pose as n friend of the Assooiatlon and assume the role ot a great slIcMer for law and order Now you and would be inclined to give him a hearing if he would first prove himself a sticker for common decency As he has outraged decency to such an ex tent that scarcely a bakers dozen oi our members read his paper and be certainly Is not entitled to any consideration or sympathy from any friend of the Association This old traitor and hypocrit scekk to convey the impression that Mr Ewing and leaders are in favor of lawlessness which is an infamous misrepresenta tion and you all know it All the phoned arrows that ho lean shoot at the character of Mr Ewing and our leaders will fall harmless at Its base Neither are our members Inclined to

many cattle and took their tobacco at such a low and ruinous price that it amounted to confiscation and highway robbery i after these pirates had produced at most a famine in the land our people were driven into this organization for protection Instead of giving it a fair chance and a clear field what did they dol Sought every unfair means ingenuity could Invent to break the backbone of the organUatkn After having seen that the organization was a go in the spice of a few short months they raised the price of tobacco from 4 and 2 to as high as 12 and 2 In order to tempt as many of our people as possible from going into the As sociation We went to them and begged them to desist i instead of stopping they iissued their cards of defiancepand set up tholt moats and surrounded themselves with fast shooting guns These conditions have prevailed here fer nearly a year tc the prsent time i recently three has been some plant beds scraped these agents and their sym pathizer held

you consider how the Trust came here and created condo lions that produced a blight and curse to the whole tobacco district I think all fair minded men will be disposed to place the responsibility for
