Joe Thompson, alias "Calico-hande- d Joe," a negro, was taken before Judgo Naylor, Monday, to answer to the charge of resisting an officer. Ho plead guilty and the Jury fixed his punishment at CO days in jail and ?G0 fine. Joe Is nlways in troublo. Two year ago whllo Sheriff Johnson was arresting him, tho negro threw a gun in the officer's face and would have killed him had not Squire Jackson knocked the revolver upwards in tho nick of time. That offoneo was bootlegging. He got six months In jail. Last June he was again tried for selling liquor nnd got 100 days in jail. Ho was again arrested for bootlegging a few days ago, and it was in this instance he resisted arrest or rather ran from tho sheriff on Clinton street. Ho attempted to knock tho sheriff down when overtaken, but W. C. Reed and L. A. Stono wont to tho officer's assistance and they overpowered tho negro. When Joo finishes his present sentence, ho will then stand trial for two more bootlegging cases. A SENSIBLE SUGGESTION But-urd- COMS 1VOW Don't Wait Until the Last Minute L uou Come to E R.

The company officials refuse to make any statements, and efforts are belag made to learn If the mine was equipped with sufficient sprinkling apparatus.

The power atorago plan of Prof. It. A. Fessendon, first made known at tbo last meeting of the Drltish Association for the Advancement of Science, depends upon the use of Intermittent cheap power for pumping water from tanks sunk 1,000 feet or so Into the earth, and keeping the water In surface tanks until needed. The power thus stored would bo made available at any tlmo by causing tho water to drive turbines on Its way back to tho lower level. The water could be pumped In the usual way by windmills, or by sun engines, or, hotter, by both. Solar heat Is to be utilized by, means of n large tank containing shallow lyor of water and having a steam-tigh- t covering of wired glass. It is stated that tho heat can be made to boil the water, generating steam enough to run a turbine. and It Is calculated that a "sun tank" 650 feet Bfluare would develop more than 1,000 horsepower for seven hours a day through the yoar. It seems evident, however, that such a result could be had only In a favorable climate. Comparing the expense of different sources of energy, Professor Fessen-de- n has estimated that power from water stored by the sun and wind pomps would be about one-fiftof that 'of steam, th of that of gas, of that of Niagara Falls and somewhat lees than twice that of the cheapest water powers. h one-foursix-fift- !; and Notary Public 3; J; Will practice in all Courts of the State.

The Bible tells what tbo wrath to We will look-n- t that In due come Is time, but now let us look at our text, and at tho wrath which It says la alIf It Is revealed, ready revealed wbere Is it and what Is It? We answer that the expression of Uod's wrath against sin Is seen In the sentence of death against the sinner "Dying, thou shalt die" This the It has Scriptures call the "curse." rested upon our race for six thousand years It Is risible to all. attested by the reign of sin and denth. Do we not see depravity all about us, and do we not renllte some of It In our own pelves? Do we realize that our race Is dying, mentally, morally and physicalDo we reallzo that all this Is the penalty of sin? Every piece of crepe, every funeral procession, every casket, every lemetcry. every undertaker's sign, every physician's sign, all of our wenkness-e- s testify that God's wrath Is upon our race Moreover, the earthquakes und Hstllences. the drouths and Hoods, tell us that our earth is not In n ierfect condition, suitable for that there Is a perfect man It reason "by our rui Is treated by our Creator ns n nice of convicts.

Does anyone supMse that doctors or undertakWhy ers or cemeteries nre there? not? The answer Is simple.

A few years ago, when it was believed the building code would bo amended to preiont tho erection of buildings hlghed than 20 stories, the Equitable Llfo Inturanco company filed plans for a building, but that was little more than n dream of the late Faul Morton, then president of the company. When the Metropolitan tower was built two years ago it was thought housed in It, s. 100-ntor- tho limit In height had been reached, That structure of 49 stories, towort 700 feet nbove the ground. Dut at the present time a 65 story building Is in course of construction which, when completetd, will bo 7B0 feet high. So It will bo seen that the 100 story boat. Is building, like tho really not a dream but actually In sight as a practical realization. According to Mr. Mortimer, the erection of n 100 story building will not offer any more serious engineering problems than are to be found in put ting up one of 45 or 50 stories. The foundations will not have to be any deeper, for the solid rock below the surface of Miinhattnn would support a 500 story bulldlug If It were possible to build one. Tho building, of course, will be of steel construction, inoro than 40.000 tons being required, not to mention brick, 2,700.000 21.500.000 common face brick, 60.000 cubic feet of Indiana limestone, 6.000 cubic feet of grsnlto and 9.000 tons of ornamental terra cotta. The outer materials are In equally stupendous quantities For Instance. 1,350.000 square feet of partition tile will be needed, 2,400,000 feet of pine boards for floor covering. 6,900 windows, 18.000 square feet of glass and 840,000 pounds of window Ninety elevators will b weights 100-fo- The Courier can save you money Ph VEGETABLES on your newspapers and magazines.

The specific accusation Is made by an Insurance company In the case of the burning of the home of Mrs. Jessie Drown on August 31. In six years the residents of Old Brldgo have been strangely murdered and more than a dozen fires occurred. Six years ago Mrs. Jane Wright, an octogenarian, was found dead In betf one morning In her bouse, whero she lived alone, across from the Baptist church of which Appleby Is one of the elders.

Pa.one be of the bold-ca- t and most carefully planned robhere In recent beries perpetrated years was committed by a beautiful girl, who, Impersonating an Inspector In the John Wanamaker store, collected (600 in cash from five cashiers. That the girl did not succeed In getting away with several thousand dollars was due to the young woman cashier In the sijjt and cloak department, who refused to turn over the day'B proceeds to the "inspector." The only clew to the girl's identity that the store detectives have found Is the signature she used In signing receipts for tho money nho collected. On each of the five receipts turned over to the cashiers she signed In a bold, firm hand the initials "M. R. C." That the robbery was carefully planned is evidenced by the fact that the girl preceded the regular Inspector, who dally collects the cash, by but a few minutes. So close her calculation that while she was getting casa irom one casnier the regular In spector was collecting from a cash register only a few feet away. She told the cashier that th nunitur spector hod been discharged and she would in future make dally collec-- t i. Without a word the caaMor over about C0 In bills of small denominations, which the colloctor put in a small tin box a duplicate of the one carried by the regular Inspector.
