Advertising tales made known on application lION D L MOORE Mprtr county is a candidate for tress in the Eighth district to succeed lion L Gilbert subject to the action of the Democraticparty Your support is earnest ly solicited HON HARVEY Of Stanford is candidate HELJIIthis the Eighth district of the Democratic party HON G G GILBERT Of Shelby ville is a candidate for Congress in this the Eighth district to succeed him self subject to the action of the Uemocialic party The follawing editorial whic appeared in Tuesdays issue of the Richmond Register can be so aj propriaMy applied to Rockcastle that we copy it in full Since publishing the editorial in our Issue of last Monday Setting forth our views as to the pasitiom- Madison county should take in th congressional race in this district we have been extremely gratified by the many expressions ofen dorsement of our stand by leading and influential Democrats It can not but be admitted by all that Mr Helm is unquestionably entitled by reason of locality to our support since Madison is head over ears in debt to his county of Lincoln and in additim to that undispuhtnble fact Mr Helms personal being f the most acceptable character andi his ability tried and proven as candidate he is worthy of the ut most consideration The suhje t of politics and the ways of politicians are devious and full of bypaths and hedges not on ly to the uninitiated but to players of the game as well hence surprises are many and unexpected out comes are of frequent occurence In a position like this however which involves a cae of duty and a point of honor Madisons course should be as open and cear as day We are bound by the past to Lincoln in indissoluble bonds whose severing would be the highest of ingratitude and almost we might I say the blackest of treason How could we look our faithful old neighborand standby in the face if we repudiate her candidate when I J11er votes ate so substantially aided so many of ours On the con trary are we bound to Shelby o Mercer in a similar way Far from it So from every standpoint of duty neighhorliness and fraternal obligation Madison should go record as the staunch supporter o her old ally Then from the si le of personal fitness which of the candidates is a better man than Helm Mr Moore is an old and successful business man it i4 true but does he possess the training and qualifications of a speaker and debater or the ener gies necessary to insure a brilliant record as a Congressman- Mr Gilbert has thrice been hon ored with the nomination and election and has his service been suffi ciently remarkable of meritorious benefit to his constituents to warrant his return fora fourth term On the other hand Mr Helm is a young and ambitious a practical ofatot and a giant in debate a level headed gentleman with an experienced legal career to his credit and ip every way THEm n for the we afford to turn from Helms claims to men to whom we owe nothing We ask our readers to think carefully on these things and get in line for the candidate whom we cannot repudiate without a loss of honor and selfrespect POLITICS AND POLITICIANS President Roosevelt delivered the Memorial Day address at

consultation An illegal trial had been going on before the Jewish thorities during the latter part of the light Though they had the trial in the night they were careful not to pro nounce tentence till after sunrise that Its legality might not be questioned Even the sentence thus pronounced was illegal for the law forbade passing a ieath sentence till the day after the trial Furthermore their law forbade the trying of criminal cases on the day before the Sabbath This was Friday the day before the Jewish Sabbath De livered Him up to Pilate The Sanhp drih in the time of Christ had no power o inflict the death penalty Their Ro man conquerors would not permit it so their action was practically only a rec jmmendatlon Pontius Pilate had been procurator of Judaea for four or five ears at this time under commission rom Tiberius Caesar Read at this point Fohn 172932 which shows that the hief priests tried to get Pilate to ratify heir action without looking into the matter Pilate would have nothing to do with such procedure and insisted upon a charge The Sanhedrin had condemned Jesus for blasphemy but that is not what they told the Roman gov ernor They told him that the charge was of conspiring against Rome Art thou the King of the Jews A plain question Guilty or not guilty Thou sayest Yesl am the King This was a summary of Jesus answer The full conversation in which He ex plains to Pilate what He means by being a King is found in John 183338 After this Pilate pronounced Jesus not was not a man wicked beyond any that have lived since He had pro nounced Testis innocent he wanted to have Him set at liberty But he did not want to bring upon himself the enmity nf the angry priests for there was no denying that they were still very powerful in Judaea It occurred to him that he could avoid the decision entirely by Fending Jesus who was a Galilaean to Herod toe governor of Galilee who happened to be in the city Herod was lad to see Jesus for the interview would bring him a new kind of diver sion But in that encounter Jesus was king and Herod clown Herod realized it and in chagrin sent Jesus back to Pilate in mock state but uncondemned Read the account of Luke 23312 Luke 231316 tells of Pilates formal acquittal of Jeslis He should have re leased Him but instead He takes an other step in the way of compromise he will scourge Him to pacify them and then release Him to pacify his own science The priests would not hear t- otThe question had finally come to this whether he would save Jesus or save himself He would save Jesus if he Gould he must save himself in any case It was a trial of strength between Pilate in Jesus behalf and the chief priests against him Barrabas A notable prisoner Matt 2716 who for a certain insurrection made in the city and for murder Luke 2919 was lying bound with them that had made insurrection He was a robber or brigand John 1840 Will ye that I release the King of the Jews An attempt to get the crown not the priests on his side Pilate knew that Jesus had a good deal of hold on the the common people and that that was one reason the priests hated him Read here Matt 2719 the dream of Pilates wifeThe chief priests stirredup the mul titude There are not words in the English language with which to adequately characterize the spirit of these champions of orthodoxy and it need not be done But think of the state of religion in the land when such men were its officIal leaders What then shall I do unto the King of the Jews Pilate was yielding by inches There are some matters on which men have no business to ask advice Conscience told Pilate what he ought to do with Jesus That should have been the end of it The words If thou release this man thou art not Caesars friend were a threat and it was that that finally broke the opposition of Pilate BARBED ARROWS Virtue for wage is a first cousin to man in the hand Is worth two by the ear Christian character cannot be made in a plaster cast Faith In

at St Louis to rep resent the Jersey breed in the universal dairy test has been inspected been pronounced perfect cOlllliUOIlI mill ready to start upon their six months grind on a days notice W It Spanu of the Burl Oak Jerwv farm Dallas Tex was the insJlectoI and lie was thorough In his work lie passed a week on the Exposition grounds and much of the time was spent in and around the Jersey cattle hart and the condition of each unit vidual of the herd of forty cows was definitely ascertained Xever was more intelligent and careful treatment lavished on animals No athlete was ever better trained for contest requiring the development aj speed skill and endurance than has beet this herd of Jerseys When it is known that this herd is to compete with selected herds of Holsteins Short horns trowu Swiss and Devons and the herd making the best score for the production of butter milk and cheese is to establish the standing of HeI various breeds the importance of the cows being in perfect condition may be understood For a solid year the Jerseys have been In constant training Twenty tie cows will participate in the test Cows were selected from the best herds in the United States Dr J J Richardson president of the American Jersey Cattle Club un der whose auspices this entry is made toured Europe and visited the famed Isle of Jersey where the breed origi nu ted He was seeking the best cows but returned satisfied that Europe could show no cows that were better than those lured in America Though only twentylive cows will participate in the test forty cows were selected They were assembled at Jcrseyville ill a year ago This is near St Louis and the cattle have be come acclimated Last December they were removed to St Louis The cows are the property of individual members of the club and are loaned for the term of the test e T Craves a breeder at Maitland Mo was selected as the superintendent to have charge of the cattle and he has lIen highly complimented by Dr Richardson and In spector Span n for the wonderfully line condition in which he has placed the series of model dairy barns have been built for the breeds competing in the test The barns are octagonal in form mill ute so jirraiiged that the cows are in the center a wide promenade permits visitors to pass around and view the cows as they stand in their stalls The milking mill feeding are to be done In plain view of the public and representatives of the various herds will at all times have access to all the barns to te that no sharp practices are indulged in The test tint only consists in show lug the amount of butter milk anti cheese produced but the cost of pro duction is tiken into consideration Every dunce of food given each cow is weighed and carefully recorded When the cows are milked the milk is con veyed to a model creamery in the ricultural buMing where it is tested unit made ino butter awl cheese where all records are carefully kept The Jersey cattle participated in a similar test at Chicago during the Co lumbian Exposition and carried off first honors Superintendent Graves Is sanguine over the result of the present test He says that the Jerseys have always demonstrated their superiority over all other breeds when placed In competi tion and this time they will show to better advantage than ever Not only is the Jersey milk richer In butter fat than the milk of any other breed says Sir Graves but it can be produced at a less cost The Jersey cows Ire the smallest of the standard breeds and he asserts that they consume less feed They assimilate their food and it is converted into milk and butter and is not used in building up and sustaining a large carcass We are going to make all other breeds take to the woods after this test said Mr Graves A few days ago I was testing some of our Jersey milk and my hands were all sticky and greasy from the enormous amount of butter fat the mill contained Mr Von Heyne who is in charge of the Ilolsteins sent over a quantity of his milk for me to test Of course from a commercial standpoint there was no comparison between the milk but It was a pleasure to test his milk for when I got through there was no grease on my hands After this will have a bucket of Holstein mill around handy to wash my hands in titter testing our own rich Jersey milk The test begins May and contin lies 120 days Unique California Map A unique
