T. Dublin on the evening of the 13th Inst, and called from the scenes of the living his aged mother, Mrs. L. J. Dublin. Before marriage she was Miss Laura Jane P. Greer. She was born In Barren County, Ky., Deo. 10, 1824. and died March 13, 1912, at the ripe old age of 87 years, 3 months and 3 days. She, while yet a girl moved with her parents from Barren county, Ky., to Caldwclil county, Ky., where she grew to womanhood. Attending the nubile cshools of that county sho ac quired a splendid education, especial ly for that time. Again moving with her parents to Graves county, Ky., where she met and married William Dublin, who had come from North Carolina with her parenst, who wore among tho first settlers in the Lyn-vlll- e district of GraveB county. Their marriage was solemnized on Feb. 28. 1844. They settled on a farm and lived happily together for many years, being tho parents of twelve children, all of whom lived to roach their maturity save two. Six are now living. Her husband preceded her by some sixteen years to that place whence no one ever returns. In 1902 she rent to Lake county, Tenn., to make her homo with her son, "W. T. Dublin, every attention "and She received possible kindness. When sho llv- all ' ed with him she met and made many friends. Until a few years ago sho had a splendid memory and was con days and of versant with events that occurred many, many years ago. For some months passed she had been showing signs of weakening; yot sho was slow to confess it. No doubt her great fortitude and Indomi table courage prolonged her days full many a score. Only the day be fore sho died she Insulted on sitting up. When the time came for hereto go she went without a murmur or a struggle. Just falling to sleep as it were. Living as she did, a devoted christian life, she had no fear to go at any tlmo she might bo called. Sho leaves two sons, four daughters a number of grand and great-gran- d children to mourn her loss, and a host of frlenda to treasure up kind thoughts and loving me.morlcs of her. for avcry ono who knew her could but fovo her. Tho remains wero laid to rest in the Dublin lot at the City Cemetery at Hickman on the afternoon of tho 14th of 3Iarch. To tho bereaved one wo would not say wocp not, for It Is but human to mourn the loss of one who has boon I so dear to us in this transitory life. JWo feel sure that In this case deathk 'is only a transition from a world of affllcltion to ono where all Is happiness, plcasuro and poaco. So let us all prepare to meet Grandma In that bright celestial land whero we may linger about tho dazzling throne of, God and bask in the sweet and sunny smllcB of a loving Saviour.

A REWARD FOR TROUSDALE LATE, POPULAR Sheet Mcisijc Newspaper to Swell Cash Token of Appreciation When He Spurns the Spotlight. San Antonio, Tex., Mar. 19. No moving picture royalties for David A. Trousdale, hero of the attempted Southern Pacific train robbery near Dryden. Instead of posing for the camera men, showing how he killed Tall Texas" Ban Kllpatrick and Kd Weleh, Trousdale will be rewarded by his employers, the Wells Fargo Ex press Company, and grateful citizens. The exact amount of his cash reward will not be known till the San Antonio Light completes a subscription list started by the newspaper at the Instance of Walter F. McCaleb, president of the West Texas Bank and Trust Company. He gave $25. The express company has given Trousdale a handsome gold watch and a purse of $600 In recognition of UIb bravery and high sense of duty. Numerous awards have come to him from other sources. It. E. L. Montgomery, local agent of the Wells Fargo Express Company, said that the company would now have no hesitancy In sondl ig 160,000 In cash across the American continent. If It were known to robbers that the money was in Trouailalo'u charge. The career of Kllpatrick, member of the Hole In the Wall and Black Jack gangs, and Trousdale's heroism, caused a rush of vaudeville and moving picture offers. The express messenger declared he would accept none of either. ARGUMENT IN PACKERS TRIAL Jury to Get Case This Week ernment Will Ask Jail Sentences. Gov- HIGH WATER COMING.

Monday at tie Court House to form a Wdman's Civic Improvement League. Although this movement Is a new-on1o many of the ladles here, It and most useful is a factor elsewhere In tbo Improvement and upbuilding to every community in which It has been organized. Indeed the amount and quality of civic work which women can 'and do accomplish, when harmoniously united, is wonderful and not until after the league has undertaken Its many and important duties can the town realize what a powerful instrument for good in a Woman's Civic League. Throughout Kentucky the women are beginning to realize the duty they owe to their own homes in giving their attention to the conditions existing in the schools, the markets, and in jthe streets; for upon theso conditions rest the ultimate health and happiness of the children of the community. No matter how careful a child' may be reared, nor with what intelligent and unremitting care tho mother may endeavor to surround him in the homo, if he does not find proper conditions elsewhere, half of tho mother's effort Is walsted. Take as an instance of this a He child's first year In school. should receive as careful attention there as In his home If tho best results are to be obtained In splendid efficient citizenship. manhood und The school room should be perfectly ventilated, properly lighted, and evenly heated; there should be suitable sanitary conveniences; plenty of pure drinking-water- ; and clean and roomy playgrounl3. All these things are of equal importance with a good teacher, for the best teacher cannot do all; the school Itself must do its share and do It properly for tho best results. For this reason It is important for the teacher and the mother to be In sympathy with each other, and to always be willing to help and with each other. The women who attended the meeting on Monday afternoon were all deeply Interested In the formation of an efficient league In Hickman, and all followed closely what was said e d A large and representative gathering; of the women of Hickman met on women of Hickman, who have 'evidently been thinking nerlously of the needs and pioblems of our town, nnd who are ready to take up the work of civic Improvement nnd to do their utmost for tho betterment of our fair little city. This Is u long stride forward for Hickman, nnd will be a constantly growing nnd broadening Influonce which will be felt, iKronly within the limits of this community but in the whole county, and, If wo accomplish all we hope to, through out the whole state of Kentucky as well.

Pf.ni Cablo dispatches of March 8, from tfew Zealand announcing that Cap Scott had found tho south polo.canro as a startling climax to tho race . which five explorers of different na tlonalities havo been making to, reach this final extremity of tho undlscov- ' crcd portion of tho globe. Capt. Robert Falcon started on his expedition from Port Chalmers Now Zealand on November 29, 1910. Ho was "well equipped for this dash Mr the fartberest south, having made a previous expedition, under tho direction of the Royal Geographical Society. At that "ms he attained a record of 82 degrees 30 minutes, which remained the record up to the time of Lieut. Shackelton's notable exploit. Shackclton pushed further south, and in 1907 "reached 83 degrees 23 minutes or about 100 mile from tho south pole. This remained tho record and inspired tho hardy navigators of many nations to attempt the culminating feat of reaching tho pole itself. Capt. Scott took, tho route by way of Australia and New Zealand. Ho soiled duo south' Into Ross Sea, a great stretch of water reaching towards the south pole. HU chief competitor in this dash was Capt. Amundsen, who is commissioned by the king, of Norway and tho Norwegian?'' government. Amundsen choso tho route by way of South America. Ho left Buenos Aires toward tho close of 1910, He passed through the straits of Mageli Ian and then steered for Ross Seat tho same hect of water which Capt. Scott had gained by way of tho New Zealand and Australian route. Capt. Scott planned to follow tho samo land trail that Shackelton had taken. This Is long a mountain range, thought to bo an extension of the southward Andes range, running through South America. At the farthermost point of Ross Sea, Capt. Scott debarked his party from the ship, tho Terra Nova. Immediately at tho point of debarkation stands the great volcano, Mount Erebus, from which rises constantly a great column o' steam. It is ono of the dreaded localities of tho Antarctic to which navigators havo given tho name of Terror Bay, for hero Nordensklold's ship, tho Antarc-U- c was crashed in tho ico. Back of volcano this bay tho stands out, sentinel like, against tho ico covered mountain ranges stretching southward. Capt. Scott made his first winter quarters on tho s'opo of the mountains, and there remained unUl November 1911. It was then that his dash began. His plan was to cover tho remaining distance by the end of December, and then Immediately face about and mako the backward dash. Besides his equipment of food ho had placed reliance on a score of dogs and ono ponies, with twenty-nin- e motor sledge. Ho designed to uso this sledge in making rapid progress over tho comparatively lovol stretches of tho foothills. Duo allowanco was made for the deathof ponies dogs, tho steady dopletion of stores and tho loss of vitality of tho party making up tho expedition. steam-wrapped Un j .

President Taft wilt unquestionably be renominated by that party. His sympathy with the regular Republicans and his opposition to reforms advocated by the progressive Republicans are well known. While It may be admitted that the leaders of the progressives will support the ticket nominated by their party, yet this Is net true ef the rank and file who as a rule are without polities! ambition and consequently have no party loyalty to maintain. To a greater extent than any of the Democratlo candidates forth nomination Oovernor Wilson would draw from this class of voters beside holding every Democrat worthy of the name and drawing largely from the educational classes and the element. His campaign, like the one he made for governor of New Jersey, will be remarkable In our history for Intellectual vigor In grasp of present political conditions and In clearness of statement of the remedies he Is unexcelled by any pub lic man of the times. We must not underrate the strength and resources of the Republican party and should not delude ourselves with the belief that any man we nominate can be elected.

In Judging tbe quality and condition of tbe muscular tissue of tho body one should remember to take Into consideration tbe size, age, and stage of lactation of the anlmaL The bono and muscular tissues In a large cow are naturally heavier than in a small one and there is not tbo apparent re finement and spareness of form in the large breeds that is noted In the smaller ones. Marked coarseness, howcvei, In any animal is usually accompanied by a sluggish disposi tion which in a dairy cow prevents her from performing satisfactorily. Young heifers with first calf usually carry more flesh than cows of mature form. All properly fed cowa usually show a higher condition of flesh de velopment toward tho closo of their lactation and prior to freshening than they do when four or fivo months ad vanced In lactation. The Udder The udder ia the milk secreting organ and its proper development Is, therefore, essential. In many Instances cows of large digestive capacity and of dairy breeding have failed In production apparently on account of poorly developed udders. Tbe udder consists of two largo glands each of which Is moro or less distinct ly- - divided to correspond with each ol the four teats and form tbe quarters Tbe duct of each teat enters a smat cavity termed tbo milk cistern. Tb milk cistern of each quarter is mort or leas surrounded by lobes of glan tissue held In position and closely to getber by connecting tissue. Thest lobes may be likened to thick buncbei of grapes since each lobe has severs, lobules corresponding to tbo grapes Tho lobulos are made of small division! called alveoli which correspond to tht seeds of grapes. These alveoli an constructed of small cells surrounded by a fine network of blood vessels and nerves and It is by theso cells that th milk ia secreted. The best cows have comparatively largo udders with equally developed quarters extending well forward underneath the body and a good distance up behind and between tho thighs. Poor attachment giving a swinging or pendant type of udder and deficiency and irregularity In the development of the quarters are criticisms to be offered on many cows. The quality of tho udder when examined by handling should reveal gland tissue of fine, plastlo texture rather than fatty tissue or a texture that Is coarse and hard. The Circulatory 8ystem, This system determines the activity of the cow with respect to all parts of the body. Only when In perfect health and all parts of tbe body are actively performing their rospectlve functions can tho dairy cow be expected to yield a large flow of milk. When the cow Is sick or by virtue of her poor individuality Is dull and morbid tbere Is an Inactivity of all the glands of the body resulting In a dry, harsh condition of the skin, a staring coat, and a low production of milk. The olrcula-tor- y system includes the heart, lungs, arterlos and veins since these organs respectively force, purify and carry blood to and from all parts of the body. When food becomes digested and assimilated tho blood must carry It to tbo parts of the body demanding It and in tbe dairy cow tbo glands of the udder demand a large share of the nourishment of tho blood for the secretion of milk. The size and character of tho milk veins, more properly termed "mammary veins," and tho milk wells on the underside of the body are tbe best indications of how much blood passes through tho udder. These veins do not cary milk as some pooplo believe, but carry a large portion of tho blood away from the udder. Tbe blood passes into the udder through arteries located deep on the inner sldo of tbe thighs. If one were standing below a mill propelled by a water wheel and noted the race filled with water from the mill he would have reason to believe that the mill was in operation and performing Its work. Likewise when one observe t, large, branching mammary veins entering tbe body through wells of sufficient size to avoid a vein becoming' gorged he has reason to believe that the udder is performing Its work well.

In These were both long and prosperous reigns In the middle of the eighth century before Christ. They were times of great luxury connected with the rapid growth of tho two capital cities Jerusalem and Samaria. The old religious habits had been largely set aside by the Incoming of foreigners. Tho displacing of religion In the court had made wordllness fashionable, and with entire lightheadedness the people had given themselves up to the pursuit of plea-ur-e and of wealth Amos was a herdsman of small desert sheep on the hills of Judah, some dozen miles to the south of Jerusalem. He describes himself as a "ptneher of wild figs." which evidently he gathered from time to time to supplement by their sale the smalt earnings of his poor flock. His home In the little village of Tekoa was on a ridge some 8.000 feet above the Mediterranean. Alone with his flock he had before his ees many a reminder of the God of his fathers who had brought them out of ngypt and. delivering them from the wilderness, had led them across the Jordan and had given them the promise of this land as their abiding Inheritance. And now God was forgotten, and his people had fallen Into the ways of the heathen As from time to time he went down to the town to sell his fleeces or his figs he wa overwhelmed with what he saw. Communing alone with God. the measago of prophecy was given to him. It consists of three short addresses. The first pronounced the Judgment of Jehovah upon the nations, the second his judgment upon his own people, warning them that because he had known them and loved them, therefore he would visit thera In the third, conIn chastisement. taining our text, he warns them of their danger, exhorts thera to return to Jehovah and recalls his vision of the blessedness that Is awaiting them In the distant future. "Bring your offerings," he saya. "Keep your fast, be followers of Jehovah In name. God Is not deceived by hypocrisy. Religion Is character; he sees through your shams; be knows the perversion of your hearts. They that He in beds of Ivory and stretch themselves on beds and couches; that eat lambs out of the flock and stng Idle songs to the sound of the viol; that drink wine In bowls and anoint themselves with chief oils and are not grieved with the afflcUon of Joseph, they shall go Into captivity; their revelries shall pass away, for the Lord abhors the excellency of Jacob, and their houses shall be smitten." In his distress over the people he cries unto the Lord: "Oh, Lord Jehovah, forgive, I beseech thee," and he haa a vision of the turning away of the divine lodgment. Then comes the text The Lord stands with the plamb line In his hand and the plumb the, graphjc flgute of the .prophet as the message to his people. We rejoice as we apply this test to the Christianity of today. Let us see what its word Is to us. Let us look first to the gospel that we have to preach. That never waa more distinctive than It Is now as the gospel of Jesus Christ. We have gone through the period In which under th Influence of the wonderful discoveries of science, rationalistic unbelief haa swept over the land and turned many away from Jesus Christ But that day was long passed and has been followed by another. In which men have been trying to' find an acceptable substitute for Jesus Christ They have been running here and there after any form of religion, or of worship that claimed to be new; new thought, or new philosophy, or new revelations, whether coming In the name of some mystery of Persia or India, or some device masking as religion or science from Boston But men already have found not only that they cannot live without religion, but that today no religion will satisfy a man other than that which reveals God.
