the future is going to bring the White Ribbon movement the Blue Ribbon movement the Prohibition movement and tht Antisaloon League movement were or are protests upon the part of good men and women against two of the greatest evils tconnected with our civilization and unfor tunately for us connected with our tradewe refer to drunkenness an 1 to those saloons which are conduct ed in a

uncertain tones our entire sympathy with the efforts that have been or may be put forth to ex terminate the evils and our will ingness to lend co operation and assistance by every means in our power We believe that it should be made a crime for a man to become intoxicated We hold that no man has a rigqt to deliber ately overthrow his reasom and render himself dangerous factor in society and therefore we would gladly welcome the passage of laws providing severe penahties for such offenses and a firm rigid enforce ment without regard to wealth or influence of the offender SENATOR ARTHUR P GORMAN died in Washington Sunday morns ing For nearly a halfcentury Senator Gorman had Been one of noted men of the country and one of its most brilliant lights Like the large majority of our greatest leaders he attained his station in life under many adverse circum stances He was a strong and fearless advocate of the principles which he advocated but in so do ing he commanded the respect and admiration of men of both parties He was recognized as a masterful political leader an able statesman and a valuable public man and it is generally conceded that his death leaves a big gap in the United States Senate He held many sub ordinate positions in Washington and they proved steppingstones to a power such as few other men in American life have wielded IN instructing the Fayette county

hall be elected It is generally electiotlIlate for United States Senator will be chosen at the same time The election of the nominee for United States Senator by a primary elecIion is a new departure but Jecidedly the fairest and is belief ed will prove to be the most satis factory way to decide the question A primary will afford every Demo crat in the State an opportunity to express his prefference and have aI voice in the selection of a nominee It is true he has a sayso now indi rectly by voting for the candidate for Representative who may favor the preference of the voter for the Senatorial nomination but that is such a roundabout way the average voter does not feel that he has any voice in the selection at all and this view leads to indifference and sometimes to results that are not to the best interests of either the party- Ir the State In an election in which evary member ot the party has a voice the majority rules its verdict is acquiesced in and the contest is quickly and satisfactorily settled The most effective argument in favor ofa primary however is that it removes the contest for the party nomination from a caucus of members ot the General Assembly thereby eliminating a soarce of much loss of time the cause of a good deal of ill feeling and estrangement that cannot in nure to the party good Another strong point in favor of the prima ry is that the question of the Sena torial nominee will cut no figure in the contest for representative in the General Assembly Hereto fore the preference for States Senator has been UnitedI issue in the campaign proved to be the most influential factor in deciding the strggle The candidate who espoused the cause of the most popular aspirant for the Senatorial nomination generally won the Legislative fight al though he may have been the least deserving candidate in the race The nomination of the Senatorial candidate by a primary will elimi nate this influence therefore for that and other good reasons the proposition will meet with general approvalEx OLD HICKORY CHIPS your Associate Editor Utah and Delaware are both giv ing Kansas the laugh on Senatorial vacancies Delaware has gotten use to going short

Five Virginia Beauties A Daring Horse Woman and Fond of Exercise Five Million Dollar English Estate a Wedding Present A Gibson Girl is the talk of al England for she has married a young van of that country who is heir to an estate of more than 400000000 The bride is none other than Waldorf Astor and a sisterinlaw Charles Dana Gibson the celebrated American artist Mrs Astor is one of five sisters all natives of Virginia and belonging to a family numbered among the FFVsstanding high in the aristocracy of the South She was a Miss Nannie Lang BobhyShawAll of the Langhorne sisters are remarkable beauties paying particular attention to every detail of face and figure A Virginia lady who knew them in their girlhood days stated that somethinglikebriskly for an hour or two Have a luncheon and exercise again this time riding Luncheon again and then a long vigorous tramp or a cross country ride to hounds just for the pleasure of it then a hearty supper then a long walk in the southern twilight and then bed SPLENDID WOMAN RIDER With a strong horse beneath her and the pack in full cry to see Nannie Langhorne riding to hounds was a sight for men and gods In the days of her girlhood at the Deep Run in Virginia she was Diana stirruped and it is no stretching of facts when one avows that men came from far afield just to see her with her pink cheeks aglow and her fair hair loos ened to the breeze pound the sod in a madcap abandon for the brush Virginianinhollow and at 16 she horseIwoman WaldorfAstoron horseback and her bubbling ir repressible Americanism Young As tor when he beheld her in her glory caught his breath just as Bobby Shaw her divorced husband had done sev eral years ago in Old Virginia And this was not strange Waldorf Astor always breathing in the compressed air of his fathers house timid retiring and studious by nature had not much opportunity for young girls society and almost never that of American girls To him Mrs Nannio Shaw was a revelation For seven months he wooed her and at the end of that time he was threefourths American fourfourths in love Glowing he followed her across the AtlanticIt fair to young Astor to say most everything American or his brother John Jacob who is an outandout Englishman EXCLUSIVE WEDDING SERVICE The which occurred at London in May was a very af fair only 17 invitations being sent for the ceremony The bride made the loveliest picture standing as it appeared in a bed of lilies and roses near the chancel A work of art in deed was her wedding gown for it was made of the most expensive silk obtainable adorned with rare old lace Among the many presents the most notable was the Sancy dia mond given by Mr Astor to his daughterinlaw which later on is to be reset and worn on her presentation at court This

ITELLTALE THUMBPRINTS FINGER MARKS OF CREHNALS LIFELONG AIDS TO THEIR DETECTION Individual Finger Marks Permanent Through LifeAdoption of System for Identification of U S Soldiers and Sailors A few weeKs ego Inspector McLaughlin of the New York City De tective Bureau received remarkable evidence of the value of thumbprint identification A letter was brought to him through the mails from London containing the picture and record of a noted criminal whose thumbprint with his name and description was sent to London to test the efficiency of this new method of recording dis tinguishing marks of criminals By means of the thumbprint alone the English police identified the criminal captured by the New York police whose record in England includes eight Imprisonments on charges of larceny The prisoner was caught by Inspector McLaughlin in the corridor of the WaldorfAstoria Hotel in April There were no charges against him in this country at the time but the Inspector decided that his captive was an English crook It was found that two patrons of the hotel had been robbed and the prisoner was detained for a thorough investigation of his case Meanwhile the Inspector sent the thumbprint to London and the reply brought a photograph of the crook and a duplicate photograph of his thumbprint and his record THE BERTILLON SYSTEM For some time the criminal of prominent cities have been usin the Bertillon measurement system which also Includes making two pho tographs of the suspicious character but the French system and photo graphy have fallen short in man cases as a scheming criminal call adopt various subterfuges to cheat the law but there Is no way of changing the character of his thumbprint for there are no two people whose thumb- are exactly alike and each person ha his own individual thumbprint whose character remains the same from the day of birth to the end OLD AS THE HILLS There is nothing really new in this mode of identification as from time immemorial the Chinese have known MAGNIFIED THUMB MARK SHOWING DISTINGUISHED LINES the fact that every man carries on his fingertips the proofs of his identity and passports in the Celestial lan have consisted of a government stamped piece of oil paper on which the traveler has to record his marks before setting forth on h journey So in India where deeds transferring land have for centuries past been signed among the Illiterate peasantry by a thumbmark Within recent years the government of India has extended this native custom to postoffice savings bank books military and civil pension

criminals for their own sake as well as for ocietys are worth watching at every stage of their career and the finger print system is the only means of identification yet devised that makes this practicable Not only is it virtually impossible that any mans ten fingerprints one after the other should resemble in mere general mathematical form each of those of another man the chance against any such coincidence being calculated by Professor Francis Gal ton the eminent anthropologist and mathematician as one hundred and sixtyfour million against one but it is equally impossible that any two fingerprints should be Identical in every letail- Recently the United States govern ment has also adopted the thumb print system for identification of the sailors and soldiers in service as this might

wouldnt be afraid to wander all over these hills from now until morning George Casey was indeed a tenderfoot but this was not the worst of his failings Raised In a wealthy family he had been given everything he wished and had ruled his fathers house to suit himself That he was the most important portion of the family he did not for a moment doubt and It was his greatest desire that others should share that opinion with regard to him When he found that he was to spend the summer In Wyoming looking after sonic mining interests he determined that of all other things he would show the

George Casey and Twobits She had always been accustomed to associating with roughly dressed brownfeatured bowlegged cow boys who treated her like one of their own kind and sometimes enjoyed teasing her for the amusement of the gang An admir ation had been awakened in her for this emoothshaven well dressed polite young gentleman who had come from the land of which she had heard such wonderful Stories She had dreamed of such individ uals but had never seen one before He appreciated the fact that she admired him and since no one else in that Immediate vicinity seemed to share the feeling he gladly allowed her the monopoly of it So two had formed a sort of social system all their own with just two classes master and vassal Naw she drawled I aint no coward neither But I tell you we cant go

accompany him They trudged along In silence half an hour and still the peak seemed as far away as ever Confound It said George at last If We had not stopped so long to talk about It we could have peen there before this I suppose Its too late to go any farther Had Twobits been more cultured and learned It Is likely she would have said i told yon so But she only turned as CAME doggedly as before and followed him back toward the camp The sun had gone down and soon the long twilight was to a close Now and then the howl of a cyote was heard far out over the hills and in another direction the

we come ter the Bnrnin Hils Peers as though I could feel the heat right now There Look yonder They were now on an eminence command ing a good view of the lower hills and as the looked down into the darkness they could see distinctly long lines of glowing red streaking the earth like the trails of fiery serpents The redness pulsated like dowvlThlncoward an all so may a bin all a ghost story too But there it is an we got ter cross thet place The brave young man was getting really scared lie had never before been out In the mountains in the night time and the awful stillness broken now and then by unpleasant sounds peculiar to the mountain country awed and frightened him His teeth were fairly chattering soonerheIt was so bad Yer might a had a purtygood idea she answered but it aint agoin to do no alongfasterBy this time they were nearing the dreaded place Suddenly as she reached forward her foot to take a step she realized Instinctively that it was not finding a solid footing ns soon as it should A sudden and uncommon warmth came upward and In another instant the faint glow was seen showing her a chasm with the further brink some three feet away Lcapingacross she called to her companion Mind yer eye They had changed placesshe was now the master and he the slave What Is 11 he asked as he neared the place Just then he took the fatal step and felt himself falling But the girl was quick Suddenly reaching out her arm she grasped him by the and fairly drag ged him across the chasm Well I never he exclaimed in fright Thats something awful dont you know I say are there many more like that Come on an quit yer talkin was the preemptory order But I say Twobits It isnt safe Is It he called after her I aint afeanl she answered if yon are why stay where you are or go back an peakBlast he muttered I andleavewould serve me right for I suppose its all my own fault limit really I had no idea there was any truth in what she said andleaehis throat something very like a sob

tomed to such tricks Now he stood like a scared child on the opposite side of the ditch If the situation had not been so serious it would have been comical Well yer comiu she asked im patiently He stepped back for a run but when he came to the edge again he stopped short and looked ruefully at the red glow beneath him He held out his hand and drew it back suddenly as he felt the Intense heat Then what little courage he possessed for sook him and he began to whimper- I just cant make it Twobits Whatever shall I dO- tWaII drawled the matteroffact girl I spose I could go ahead an gut some of the fellers from town ter come out an help yer across Theyll make no end of fun of yer though Blast the fun he cried llurlJup and get me out of this most All right Stay where you are and Ill be back after a while and she bounded away like a deer leaving George Casey sitting there in the night alone Minutes dragged like hours and the darkness seemed to grow thicker every moment except when it was penetrated by that un canny glow from down below Then as he SHE TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE GULF drawing hef strained his eyes to catch sight of the rescuing party he thought with bitter anguish of the jokes that would be enjoyed at his expense by the fellows In the camp He knew that he had tried to lord it over them and now they would have a chance to get even He could imagine Twobits as she ran Into the Last Chance and In great hilarity told the boys how she had left thet felller from Boston out on the edge of a chasm on Burning Hills He could al most hear their loud laughter as they pre pared to come in search of him In the midst of these thoughts he spied a light in the distance It wavered was lost and appeared again Yes it was a lantern anti It was bearing toward him Should he shout and show them where he was No that would only add pleasure to their huge joke He would remain quiet even at the risk of having them miss him If Twobits only had sense enough to tell them some yarn about me getting hurt or something of that kind he said Then he remembered that she had not been in the best humor and decided that she would probably enjoy the sport as much as any of the others Hello called a voice Where are yer Mr Casey It was the voice of Twobits and it was sweet music in his ear Bight this way Twobits he answered Have you brought help She came to the other side of the gulf and thrusting a stout plank out toward him she drawledYas er help Did yer think I was agoin ter give yer away ter the gang Yer would never aheard the last of it I guess we ken make it all right with this here Then making sure the plank was resting securely on either side she ordered Now git spry and dont waste no time Hop across I tell yer As they came to the last crevice where the board was necessary George paused WaH drawled Twobits as she waited with arms akimbo this is the last one Yer goin to give up now If yer do Ill leave yer fer good dead sure Twobits said George and there was considerable pathos In his voice Two bits he repeated will you forgive me for calling you a coward You are the bravest girl I ever knew and beets real kind tome tonight Will you forgive me1 come along with yer said the girl greatly embarrassed Its my pinion yer fellers In the east jlst talk ter hear yer heads roar half the time and dont mean what yer say They neared the town walking side by side The board had been thrown away and from their appearance no one would have known that anything out of the ordinary had occurred As he left her at her own door he pressed her hand tightly and said You are a brave girla regular little day she found a pon tied to the post in front of her mothers house and on the beautiful saddle which it bore was pinned a note which read is Nickel a present to

Ranavalo the exQueen of Madagascar who is now on a visit to Paris and who since 1897 has been a queen without a tnrone living in Algiers on the charity somewhat grudgingly vouchsafed her by the French Govern mentRanavalo is now fortyfour and al though her complexion inclines to a dusky shade she is by no means un attractive She possesses a distinctly good figure dresses with much taste and wears her clothes with distinction She ruled over Madagascar for fourteen years and like the two queens who preceded her became the wife of the Prime Minister When she began her reign the country was at war with France Chinchillas Becoming Scarce The chinchilla the little ratlike ani mal which produces the popular fur is in danger of extinction The chinchillas were formerly found in great numbers in the high ranges of the Andes in Bolivia and Chili but owing to the demand for their skins they have been ruthlessly hunted in season and out of season and the Chilean Government finds it almost im possible to enforce a law which has been passed for their protection The exports from Coquimbo the principal port for this trade amounted last year to twelve thousand dozen skins and the prices paid

and the true success is to laborRobert Louis Stevenson 40 The Newest Wearing Apparel The Princess gown occupies the centre of fashions stage for spring and summer and will doubtless Ugo to mill and to meeting during the coming months It appears in all sorts of gowns from the exquisite creations for evening to the walking skirt and its accompanying bolero but there are those who cannot and will not wear this style of garment and for these there are very pretty skirts cut circular and flaring widely about the lower edge These skirts are constructed from all sorts of ma terials even to the thinnest of sum mer fabrics and if properly made they will not necessarily give much trouble by sagging However for the skirt of washing stuff the gored models are much more satisfactory anti patterns for these can be obtained with the modish flare about the bottom The vogue of the circular skirt has led to the fashion for flat skirt trim mings These sometimes take the form of stitched bands of the material or silk while braids of one or several kinds are often interlaced in design about the bottom Another mode of skirt trimming much used is con secutive rows of shaped flounces one overlapping the other and often ending at each side of the front panel One might almost say that the front panel in unbroken length from waistband to hem prevails in the majority of gowns When hands of the same fabric as the skirt are put on as trimming they are usually piped with a contrasting color the tunic and flounce being often suggested by the manner in which these are applied As for coats the bolero is in high feather this year and figures in all varieties of wear from the ornamental to the useful As an ornament it ap pears in the negligee of the morning as well as upon the evening toilette The little lace and embroidered boleros are to be much worn with soft silk and summer gowns and will prove very fetching adjuncts to the toilette Every woman and grl will do well to provide herself with several lin gerie waists for nice wear These little blouses are very important in the wardrobe no matter how meagre or sumptuous it be They can be had in a great variety of styles and in all of the sheer summer fabrics Those embroidered or inset with lace are very dainty and considered quite suit able for any occasion where one needs to look well On cool days they can be worn over a slip of pink blue or lavendar and be very pretty raid becoming rallY of these waists are made with elbow sleeves but they can be had with the long sleeveand sonic of the newest imported blouses are made with sleeves which end in a long point over the hand In materials no one will go astray in purchasing voile and linen for her spring and summer gowns There are linens of all kinds from the sheer handkerchief qualities to the fine un bleached linens Then there are soft cashmeres raw silks mohairs and eoliennes as well as the immortal serge White is promised much yogue for summer and mixed with black it is very smart for the new suits These suitings are mostly in small checks or stripes 1Was a Xonymotts letter A certain Congressman from Virginia has long retained in his employ a colored man

opportunity of personally ob serving some of the results of his wonderful activity Except for Dean Hollisters retiring modesty regarding his own performances Mrs Grannis says that it would be possible to present many more stimulating Incidents of difficulties overcome All in all his life work is doing much not only for American agriculture per se but for the advancement of the idea that
