in regard to building turnpikes by piecemea The people of this county should have better roads The Fiscal Court should have long since taken up this question and built a short piece of turnpike each year The r members of that court constitute a board of internal improvement yet they have done nothing toward building uponr coQnty We as sisted in electing some of them with the hope that they would turn their attention and direct their energies toward alittle imrrovi citizenslandselves The farmers and other la boxing people of this county can never prosper until we have better roads On motion the Fisc Court should appoint an engineer to survey the best route possible to- the top of Purcell hill and estimati the cost of building a turnpike t that point Let him give his report under the direction of the Fisc Court and then let the citizens sub scribe onetenth of the cost as es mated by the engineer When that is done and s copy of the subscnip FiscaleCourt it becomes mandatory upon that court to build the turnpike Tnis same plan has worked well in Madison county aud many other counties of the State where the people slave splendid pikes We are most heartily in favor of the plan

ought to strengthen public faith in his determination to discharge the duties of the office i with an ee single to the public weal according to his best judg ment The reasons that he gives for his determination not to be a candidate again in casE of success are the reasons which influenced me to make the same promise and I believe that they will commend themselves to the country at large This

that was broken down And Elijah took twelve stones accord ing to the number of the tribes of the sons Jacob unto whom the word of the LordV ame saying Israel shall be thy name 3i An j with the Stories he built an altar n the name of the Lord and he made a trench about the altar as great as would contain two measures of seed And he put the wood in order and cut the bullock to pieces and laid him on the wood and sail Fill four barrels with ter and pour It on the burnt sacrifice and on the wood And he said Do It the second time And he said Do it the third time And they did it the third limps And the water ran round about the altar and he filled the trench also with water And It came to pass at the time of the offering of the evenlngsacrlfiee that Elijah the prophet came near and said Lord God of Abraham Isaac and of Israel let It be known this day that Thou art God in Israel and that am Thy servant and that have done alt these things at Thy word Hear me 0 Lord hear me that this people may know that Thou art the Lord God and that Thou hast turned their heart back againVAnd the flre of the Lord felt and consumed the burnt sacriilce and the wood and the stones and the dust and licked up the water that was in the trench And when all the people saw It they fell on their faces and they said The Lord He is the God the Lord He the Jod And Elijah said unto them Take the prophets of Baal let not one of them es ape And they took them and Elijah rought them down to the brook Klshon ind slew them there And Elijah said unto Ahab Get tree up eat and drink for there is a sound of abundance of rain So Ahab went up to eat and to drink And Elijah went up to the top of Carmel and he cast himself down upon the earth tnd put his face between his knees And said to his servant Go up now look toward the sea And he went up and looked and said There is nothing And he said Go again seven times And it came to pass at the seventh time that he said Behold there arlseth a little cloud out of the sea like a mans hnd And he said Go up say unto Ahab Prepare thy chariot and get thee down that the rain stop thee not And it came to pass in the meanwhl 1that the heaven was black with clouds and wind and there was a great rain And Ahab rode and went to Jezreel And the hand of the Lord was on Jah and he girded up his loins and ran before Ahab to the entrance of Jezreel GOLDEN TEXTU the Lord be God

Fair but unlike the Buf falo Midway it is geometrica I laid out straight as an arrow and nearly a mile long Scarcely halt the attractions were open but judg ing by that half it will partake far less of tue fake aspect than did tl e PanAmerican Midway The gen eral concessions I visited left the impression that all were good some of course better than others First and taking high rank as genuine exhibition ofa enuini and dangerous vocation I place Hales Fire Fighters which none should miss The conces sion covers perhaps two acres and consists of a fully equippsd protec tion station horses steam flue en gine kookandladder wagons chemical engines and a full force of trained fire fighters under the rection of Geo C Hale the clue of the Kansas City Mo fire de partment The exhibit was an act ual part of the fire protection ser vice of the Worlds Fair and mght be called on at any time io go out on the grounds and perform it duty Thereof of this enclosure was nearly 100 foot high and one side were seats for over a thousand people The opening in front of the audience was 300 feet in size and Ion the opposite Fide was erected a building six stories high After lecture explaining the show a gong was sounded and a procession passed around the opening consisting of three engines with steam up chemical engines hook andladders firemen on foot etc This over several demonstrations of skill were given William Wil lis of Illinoir ran 50 feet and made a coupling with three full turns in ofIto the satisfactipn of the audience Another demonstrstion was this The gong was sounded with The horses in their stalls and the fireJ men in bed 250 feet away in twen tyfive seconds they had hitched up to a combination hose and lad der wagon ran 250 feet laid 150 feet of hose attached to a ial hy drant and were pooring water on a ipgAgain econds the wagon was on hand aiid the men with their scaling ladder were at the top of a sixstory tmilding But the grandest demonstration of all was yet to come Tile place was darkened and silence reigned then inside the six story building across the way appeared real fire andnot until it had gained good headway was the gong sounded the men in ted as bef ie and the horses iii their stalls in a few seconds the horses came flying down the street with their outfit and at the same moment women and children began appearing at the open windows of the burning building rn their night clothes screaming for help the din was terrible but the firemen work ed as before for this time it was business the scaling ladders were again brought into requisition and soon the first man reached the top window anchored his life line and dropped it to the ground then he turnedseized a screaming wouiau in one arm grasped the line with the other and dropped to the ground in safety other were doing thesame at different windows returning up the ladder dropping down the life line In one case two children were in one room and the flames were so fierce that there was not time to make two trips so the brave man turned himself up side down wound the line about his legs grasped a rhild in each handand thus langing himself head down and the children feet down he slid down the rope having only his legs to brea tile decent this was a nervy and daring performance and received loud cheers Just as the last inmate was rescued the inside of the building fell with a crash and a shudder of relief pas ed that alt were rescued The ho e hadmeantime been working and kept back the fir while the ret cuers worked- It was just seven minutes frcm the time the gong sounded tint I the people were all rescued and the building fell to pieces It was all very realistic The building was made incombustables and smear ed with combustible muerial the danger to the inmates who were certainly very close to the fierce fire seemed real also though there may have been a way of escape had the firemen been called ofl to a firt on the grounds in the midst of tieir exhibition as Mr Hale afterwards told me one happened and as they were real firemen and a part of the real service their show al ways had to take second place when u real alarm sounded If you go 0 the fair and miss everything else lo not miss Hales Fire Fighters All the managers are gentlemen too andnot any spieler- sDaWITTISTHE NAME When you go to buy Witch Hazel Salve look for the name DEWITT on every box The
