Andy Johnson of Fineville notched his record on a stick, and, having carelessly misplaced the stick, forgot how many men he had killed. For twenty years "Bad Bill" Osborne, the politest man that ever sighted over a rifle a perfect mountain Chesterfield trailed the war time murderers of his father and killed them one by one until his ven geance had claimed eighteen. Two are still living, according to accounts. One is out west with a nick In his ear, showing how close Mr. Osborne's bullet sang to his life and the other is in a Missouri insane asylum, driven mad by this relent less human Nemesis. The hills are filled with men of this stamp. In Rowan county it being unlawful for a homicide to sit on the Jury it once took sis weeks and many venires to find twelve men In the county who had not killed somebody. This is a fair illustration of the character of mountain men. "Clans" In the mountains are not empty names. They are as real as in the Scottish Highlands. Locked away among their hills, the mountain folic have intermarried until entire region are kin. The leader of a faction sometimes rides with 500 men at his back. Craig Tolliver once boasted that In twenty-fphours he could have 2,500 men armed with rifles In Morehead all his relatives and friends ready to fight ur "The building where McKlnley was made a Mason is still intact and the Winchester folks even the most juvenile of them have on their tongue's end the story cf how wounded at Antietam, lay on a cot next to a Confederate officer who seemingly was given greater care and more attention than he. One day he inquired, and found that the ward attendant and the Confeder ate officer were brothers. McKlnley then made known his desire to associate himself with an order in which brotherhood was such a para-motenet. His convalescent enemy indorsed his application at the nearest lodge, which, through the constant maneuvering of the army, chanced to be Winchester.

MoVr. VIUI. II. V SMITH & AMBEBC ll ; The above is especially interesting to fraters of Hanselmann, for our late president was an honorary member of our commanders. While the Metropolitan has given us a very pretty story of Frater McKinley's initiation Into our order, unfortunately its facts are somewhat distorted. McKinely was not wounded at the battle of Antietam, Maryland, nor was he wounded at any time while serving in the Union army. Our authority for this statement is the adjutant-generof Ohio, custodian of the records of Ohio troops in the war of the rebellion. The battle of Antietam began at daybreak. Before daylight the men were in the ranks preparing for it. The fight lasted from daybreak to nightfall, and the Union troops went into breakfast, or even coffee. Early in the afternoon they were famished and thirsty, and to some extent broken in spirit. It was then that McKinley a commissary sergeant, won his shoulder straps by serving, without authority and with his own hands, every man in his regiment with hot meats and coffee, while the troops were fighting under a fierce fire. This was a feat that had never before occurred in any army in the world under similar circumstances, and when Gov. Todd, Ohio's great governor," was told of the incident he promoted the young hero at once to a lieutenantcy. Hayes was the colonel in command of McKinley's regiment, theTwenty- third Uhio Volunteer infantry, and attests to the gallantry of our la mented frater on this cccassion. William McKinley's entrance, at the age of 22 years, into the order, was an incident of the war between the states. It came near the close of the memorable civil strife while he was an officer in the Federal' army. The young officer from Ohio was stationed at Winchester, Va., where was located a hospital for wounded Federal soldiers, and wounded Confederate prisoners. In making the rounds one afternoon with the regimental surgeon, McKinely noticed that the doctor was on very friendly terms with several of the Southerners, not infrequently giving them money or tobacco. The interest of the future president was aroused, he asked the reason for this rather un usual cordiality. The surgeon told him that the wounded rebels were brothers Masons, and that it was not only a duty, but a pleasure to add something to the tew comforts of hospital life. The young officer met this information with the wish to become a member of a fraternity on which neither the vicissitudes of civil strife nor rank of office had the slightest effect. During the war the lines of juris diction were often forgotten. Military lodges and special convocations of Masons, called together in a man ner which would be regarded in these days as clandestine, were frequently held In Winchester there was a regular lodge Mason, officered by soldiers, nr citizens on parole.

The decision of- - the supreme court in the commodities clause case will bo used by President Taft In as one more convincing argument favor of a general revision of all the t Interstate commerce and laws. Various recommendations that such a disposition of these laws bo made along the lines of clearness and certainty will form the chief feature of the president's message to congress next December. It can be laid down almost as a certainty that one of theso recommendations will bo that congress enact a law forbidding a railroad company to own or operato directly or indirectly, through ownership or otherwise, any concern the products of which it carries over Its lines. In other words, congress will be called upon to close up the gap opened by this decision of the supreme court and to bring back common carriers engaged in interstate commerce to the common lair basis, namely, tint railroads shall only engage in the business which they were organized to carry on. anti-trus- Kentucky's Treasury, .

In moro tho 100 years slnco 1809 than 250 Important controversies havo been sottted by this means, not to mention an ovon greator number of loss Important cnsoH, tho settlement of which Involved tho principle of ar bitration. Within the past 20 years so rapid has been tho triumph of arbitration that more than 100 Interna-tloua- l differences havo been disposed of by this means, or betwoen five and six a year for tho wholo 20 years. The Hague Court. "The first Hague conference, ten years ago,gavo us the Permanent International court ot arbitration, which haa now boon In aucccsaful operation for about eight years and disposed of several Important controversies. Tills court was strengthened and Improved by tho second Haguo conference two years ago, and, by the admission of tbo South and Central American states to It, has becomo tho arbitration court, not of tho 2G powers that gathered at The Haguo In 1839, but ot the entire world. This tribunal Is now taking practically all tho International differences not adjustable by diplomacy. "Within less than six years, more than 80 treaties ot obligatory arbitration, stipulating refcrenco to Tho Haguo court ot all questions ot n Judicial order and tboso arising In the Interpretation ot troatles, havo been concluded between nations In pairs, 23 of which wero negotiated tho past year by our distinguished of State Hoot, and ratified by both tbo president and tho senate.

Some do It because thoy aro satisfied with nothing short ot lmmodlato per fection; others because they wish tho wholo movement for the abolition ot war to fall. Othore do It purely from Ignorance. "Tho first Haguo conference gave us tho permanent International court ot arbitration, to which 24 powers finally became parties by ratification of tho convention. This court has now tor eight yoars been In successful operation, and not less than four controversies have boon referred to It during tbo past year. Tho second Haguo conference enlarged and strengthened tho convention under which this court was set up, and made the court tho tribunal, not ot 25 powers, but ot all the nations of tho world. "Tho high water mark of tho work ot tho second Hague conference was reached In Its action In regard to meetings ot tho confcrcnco. Tho princlplo ot periodic mcotlngs of tho conference horoafter was approved without a dissenting voice. Tho date oven ot tho third conference was fixed and tho governments urged to appoint at least two years In advance an International commission to prepare tho program ot tho meeting.' Dean .W. P.

'This ts what has come about In ten years Iu theso throe nations The Hague conference In 1S93 did nothing about the reduction or arrest of armaments. As we now look back, we seo that It could not do much directly at that tlmo. Tho war sys tern of nations could be supplanted only by tho gradual development ot a system of International law and Jus tice to tako Its place. tWhon the first Hague conferenco created the International tribunal. It did Indirectly the most probably which It could do In bo halt of tho reduction of armaments, becauso It took a long step In furnishing tho nations with such legal ma chinery for the scttloment of their dlf ferences as makes recourso to war machinery mora and more unnoces sary and Inexcusable. It has been In tho lino ot this thought that the In ternational lawyors have had their hopeful assurance. Develop the legal machinery, thoy said, and the arma ments will perforco crumble ot their own dead weight "Tho continued and rapid development during the decado ot provision for the peaceful settlement ot Interna' tlonal disputes has been somothlng un paralleled In history. The leaders oi the movemont for International Justice are sometimes reproached with being dreamers. The only trouble with them In the past ten years haa been that, so far as the development ot the In.tru mcnts ot International Juatlco are con cerned, they have not been able to dream daringly enough or fast enough to keep up with tho facts.

The Georgia Lee, one of the most handsome of the seven Lee Line steamers and a familiar craft to most Hickmanites, went down in 30 feet of water at Paducah about 4 o'clock Saturday evening. The boat was on the cradles of the ways and being pulled out for repairs to her hull. Ten minutes more would have seen her safe at the top. The boat whirled around in the descent and sank within three minutes, eight of the crew on board having a narrow escape from It is believed that the steamer is broken in twain and in this case she will be almost a total loss. She was built at a cost of S65.000 and is probably the best of the Lee Line steamers. If the boat is not broken the damage will not be so great, but from the present appearances it will amount to several thousand dollars! The boat was placed on the cradles late Friday afternoonandSatur-da- y the work of puilling her on the ways was begun. The needed repairs were light and could have been completed within three or four days. A small hole was stove in the hull of the boat one week ago at Helena, Ark , and by heroic work the boat was saved from sinking. The Lee was built at the Jefferson, Ir.d., shipyards and has been plying the Mississippi river coming to Hickman for eight years. She could have gotten along without immediate repairs, but Captain Lee refused to aliow the beat to continue the trade further unless she was in tip top condition. The Lee is 215 feet in length with a 44 foot beam. She has 40 hand some slate rooms and a magnificent cabin, which is valued at thousands of dollars. The cabin is said to be the finest of any steamboat on western waters. She is heavily insured in several companies. w.'b deiignt me -. me worn ine peopic further ar kl CI ncgicucu EfODtrte-:L.r1(l . ir J leading them In ,m iiilUi euori V unite!:.: 1 determinedihould t.V.v.-- t tkvali thai ihe Ujcat.ona... sp.ntuaiiy ana in- Irtv-t.- r selves 10 erings, and you want to purchase these where you can find the largest assortments and fairest prices.

In fact, they are anxious to see such a line put into operation, and are talking of getting up a stock company for that purpose. Of course we need it: and have needed It for many years. Undoubtedly it would pay. S. L.

This will put the three principal towns of Fulton county in close touch with each other and will fill a long felt want.

"I understand," said she, looking at htm keenly, and a few moments later she stepped briskly Into tho shop before which ho halted with a little light ening of tho heart because of this un couth knight of the levor. Tho shop Itself was like any one of a score on the street, crowded with oriental ob jects, bizarre carvings of Ivory and Jade, daggers and strings of cash. swords, gorgeous embroidered robes of silk and gold In a huddle over a counter or swinging and gleaming In tho dusky background, squat little green and brown gods with puffy cro uds, smiling Inscrutably amid shoes and fans and Chinese lanterns of glass and bronze, glittering with beads in all those, like tho score about It; yet the clean windows nnd a certain order within gave It a touch ont of the common. A man and a boy served the shop, both in the American dress, with their pigtails tucked under the visor-les- s caps. Doth greeted her In the serene oriental fashion, bowing and smiling, their obsequious courtesy showing no smallest sign of the surprise which the sight of an unattended woman roust have given them. Nevertheless, Mrs. Winter was aware that both, under their lowered eyelids, took cognizance of thatoft-carvedisk of Jade among tho laces on her breast. She asked the man If ho had seen a lad and an older man, or it might bo two older men, one a policeman, come into that or any other neighboring shop. Sho explained that the lad was' her and was lost (sho eschewed the harsher word, for she had no desire to set afloat a rumor which might bring the police upon her). She named a sum largo enough to kindle a sudden gleam In the boy's eyes, as the reward awaiting the lucky man who might put her on the right track, nut her words struck no rcsponslvo spark from the Chinaman's veiled gaze. In perfect English and a very soft volco he avowed and sympathy with tho same n grand-nephe- "Man you know? Say, lady, I guess I better go In with you. If you don't mind " "No; stay In your car.

I guess I was a dumb fool not ter notice, but they paid mo well, and I'd a bad thirst, and I was liking to a place I know for beer; and "Did tho boy seem willing?" "He didn't do no kicking as I seen.' A few more questions revealed that the man had unpacked his full kit of Information. Ho had never seen eith' r of tho men before.

It would bo wall worth bis while. ri sfureur did not Intetrupt, but Jm shook til head over thy departing ho-ite- l. that's" And all the while sho could feel his glance slant down at tho Jade ornament. "Send tho boy to look In the shop next door," said she. As she spoke she raised the charm between her thumb and her first two fingers, looking at blm, directly. Her tono was that of command, not request. He frowned very slightly, making an almost Imperceptible gesture, to which sho returned a single Cblneso phrase, spoken so low that bad he not ex pected tho words they had been indistinguishable to his car. Instantly he addressed the boy rapidly in their own language. Tbo boy went out. The master of tho shop returned to Mrs, Winter. His manner had utterly changed; tbo tradesman's perfunctory deferenco was displaced by an almost eager humility of bearing. He would havo her sit thero wero a few cane- seated American arm chairs, in gro tesque contrast to all their accom panlments ho prostrated himself be foro her; he put himself at her service; still to hor trained eye thero was a corner of his mind whero incredulity wrestled with a stronger emotion. "Do not fear," she said, gently, "It Is really my own, and he gave It to me himself, almost 30 years ago. He was hardly 30 years old himself then. You see, my husband had been so for tunato as to do him a kindness. It was he who bad it first. When he died it came to me, and now for the second time in my life I am using It. I saw tho sign. I knew you belonged. WIH you help me find my boy?" have him come hero?" It appeared that there was a telephone, and in a moment sho was put Into communication by the shopkeeper. He stood In an attltudo of deep rospect while she talked. Ho heard with unsmiling attention her first Chlncso words; ho listened as sho returned to English, speaking very quietly, but with a controlled earnestness, explaining that sho was Archibald Winter's widow, giving dates and places, In nowise alluding to the servlco which had won tho charm about her neck. Yet as ho llstenod. Insensibly the Chinaman grew certain that sho bad spoken tho truth. Presently sbo turned to him. "He wishes to speak to you," sho said, and went back to the shop. Sho sighed as one sighs from whose heart a great burden rolls. "To find him here, and still grateful!" sho was thinking. "What wonderful good fortune!" Sho sat down, and her face grew dreamy, Sho was no longer thinking of Archie. Her vision was on another face, another scene, a tlmo of peril, when almost against hor reason her Instinctive woman's recoil of pity for o a In danger of unthinkable torture bad been so lntenso that she had more than acquiesced in her husband's plan of risking both their lives to savo him; she had Impelled him to It; she bad overcome his terror of the risks on her account. "It Is only death wo havo to fear, at worst," she had argued. "Wo havo the means to escape In a second, both of us, from anything clso; and If we run away and leavo this poor wretch, who hasn't done anything but lovo bis country, Just as wo love ours, and be too civilized for his trilling, ornery, pusillanimous country-peoplto understand, to get slashed to pieces by their horriblo ling-linwhatever they call It Archibald Winter, don't you reckon wo shall bavo nightmares as long as we live?" Thirty years ago yet It seemed llko yesterday. Distinctly sho could hear her husband's volco; it had not come back to bur with such reality for years; It was moro real than tho cries of the street outside; and her heart was beating fastor for his words:. "Hecky, thero novor was a woman like you! You could make a dead man bop up and fight, bless you!" fellow-crcaturo amiable banker from Iowa, his wife Hnilth. It took only a moment to transfer a passonger, to explain that she hoped to find tho boy who bad been lost-- no, she would not uso such a strenuous word as kidnaped and would they complete their kindness by not mentioning tho affair to any one?

After leaving, be had motored Into town, down to tho pollco courts, to discover no records of the arrest and no traco of Archie. Thence, discouraged, perplexed and moro worried than he liked to admit, ho had repaired to tho liotol. His aunt was l gone, Miss Smith was gone, and could only relate how Mrs. Winter "had flowed llko a bird, sir, Into a big rod motor car nnd coo a. off, and then Miss Smith and a lady and gentleman had got Into a whito'uur and gono off ' In tho same direction." was meditating on his next stop, He when nirdsall was announced below. The detective looked as warm and as tired as tbo colonel had felt an hour before. Hupert was not eagtir to see Han-dol- "Your ladyship" It was tho shop- "Old your ladyship know he is ho'e, Lin San Flansico?" If sho had not already dissipated any doubt in bis mind, her evident re lief blew tho last shred away now, '"Haven't you such a thing- as a telephone somo whero?" cried Kcbecca Winter, "'lime is precious.

Tho young gentleman will bo back fo' tonight. It your ladyship will now to the hotel." Mrs, Winter bowed slightly; sho was qulto her self again. "I will go certalnly,"she said,, "but I shall hope to see you, also, and meanwhllo, will you Accept, as a token from a friend who trusts you, thU?" Sho took a little watch from her fob and' banded It to blm. Her manner was that of a queen who rewards her general. And sho left him Rowing low. She entered the motor car. It was no longer a lone motor. Another car steamed and I snorted near by, In which sat tbo 'n gem-cruste- telcphono bell. Aunt Kcbecca responded to tho call. "Send him up," waa her answer to tho Inaudible questioner. Sho laid down tho receiver. Then sho put It back. Then sho stood up, her silver head In tho air, ber erect Uttlo figure held motionless. Janet Smith's dark eyes sought hers; her lips parted only to close firmly again. Even the detective perceived the electric Intensity of tho moment, and Huport shut his fists tight, with a quickened beating of tho hoart: but emotional vibrations did not disturb Mrs. Melville Winter's poise. She continued hor plalnU "This present situation is unbearable, unprecedented and unun unexpected," sho declaimed, rathor groping for a climax which escaped her. Aunt Hebccca raised her hand. "Would you be so vory kind. said sho, "as to watt a moment? I am trying to listen." Like a responso to her words, the knob of tho door waa turned, the door swung; and Archlo entered the room, smiling his odd little chowodup smile. Janot uttered a faint cry and took a slnglo stop, but, as If recognizing a superior right, hung back while the boy put his arm about his groat-aunt'waist and rather bashfully klssod hor cheek. Sho received tho salute with entire composure, oxcopt for a tiny splash of red which crept up to each chock-bon"Is It roally you, Archlo?" said she.

There are those who have no idea of the pleasures that concentrate around that word "home," Perhaps your early ibode was shadowed with vice or poverty. Harsh words and petulance and scowling may have deitroyed alt the sanctity of that spot. Love, which kindness and have built their altars in so many abodes, were strangers in your fathei'i house. God pity you, young man. You never had a home. Dut a multitude of young men can look back to tht spot that they can never forget. It may have been a lowly roof, but you cannot think of it now without a dash of emotion. You have seen nothing on earth that has so stirred your soul. A stranger pasting along that place might see nothing remarkable about it, but oh how much It means to you. Fresco on palace walls does not mean so much to you as those rough hewn rafters. Parks and bowers and trees at fashionable watering places or country seats do not mean so much to you as that brook that ran in front of that plain farm house and singing under the weeping willows. The barred gateway swung open by port er in full dress does not mean so much to you as that si ing gate, your sister on one side of it and you on the other. She, gone fifteen years ago into glory That scene coming back to you today as you swept backward and forward on the gate, singing the song of your child hood. But there are those who have their second dwelling place It is your adopted borne. That alio is sacred forever. There you estab lisbed the first family alter. There your children were born. In that room flapped the wing of the death angle. Under that roof when your work is done, you expect to lie down and die. There is only one word in all the language that can convey your idea of that place, and that word is "home." We never knew a man who was falthlul to his early and adopted home who was given over at the same time to any gross form of wickedness. It you find more enjoyment in the clubroom, in the literary society, in the art saloon than you do in these unpretending home pleasures, you are on the road to ruin.

What constitutes a good neighbor is also frequently misconstrued, although the sensible acception of the term is, the neighbor who is friendly without being officious, helpful without be ing superflously so and finally, one who respects the privacy of others' household affairs by a certain degree of formality of manner. The social neighbor is not always the useful neighbor, yet each in her place has special influences to exert of equally beneficial contequences. The sympathetic neighbor is also a popular one but she has to exercise continuous tact, lest her solacing influence may occasslonally be overdone or utilized at untimely periods. The inquisitive neighbor is always a dread to everyboby within the reach of her inquisitive curiosity, as she does not seem to have any intuitive respect for others' feelings as regards their divulgence of personal affairs to an outsider. The truest and most respected of all neighbors, however, is the one who always speaks well of every body, who devotes the largest share of her sympathies to her own affairs, is chary of administering unsolicited advice, and who always waits until her social and useful capacites are requested, and ntver renders herself officious even in her roost sanguine effotts at proving to be a good ANOTHER WOMAN CURED By Lydia E.

A Watson, of Hickman, Ky., says: "for some years l was a victim of kidney complaint. There were pains in the small of my back, which were alawavs more irvrrr when I stooped or lifted. My back acned at night and when I arose in the morning, I was very lame. I became easily tired and occasionally suffered from nervous spells. Headaches bothered me and I was subject to dizzy spells during which there was a blurring of my eye sight. When I caught cold, it settled on my kidneys and at such times, the passages of the secretions became too frequent. This was particularly annoying during the nlnht and I was often forced to ariie several times. Learning of Doan's Kidney Pills, I procured a box it Helm & Ellison's drug store and two davs after using them, I received great reuer. When i had taken the contents of the box I was cured.
