tread its soil to knows people and to grow up with them My admiration I may say my heroworship George Wash ingtou andof Abraham Lincoln was second only to that which I e ertained for the liberators of

authorized to announce JUDGE JOHN W HUGHES of Mercer County as a candidate to represent the Eighth Congressional District in Congress to succeed Hon G G Gil bert subject to the action of the Demo cratic party We are authorized to announce HON VT PRICE of Boyle county as a candidate to CongtesatonalDistrict G G Gilbert subject to the notion of the Democratic party We are authorized to announce HON HARVEY HELM of Lincoln County as a candidate tt CongressionalDistrict Hon G G Gilbert subject to the ac tion of the Democratic party In placing Mr Price before the voters of this district the Demo crats of Boyle county feel that they have offered a man in every respect qualified for the position and wor thy of the enthusiastic support of the Democracy of the district There is not a spot uponhis char acter or political record He hs been faithful and true at jail turns to the principles and nominees ol the party having begun to wage its battles even bofore he reached his majority He was Presidential Elector for William Jennings Bry au and stumpel the district for the ticket using eyery means at his command to secure the election of the Great Nebraskan when the par ty was encompassed by its enemies from within and without and need ed every voice in her behalf We do not believe the Democrats of this district or the country will for get their obligations to those who fought their battles in the time of direst need neither do we believe they will fail to remember those who sulked in obscurity and refus ed to support the greatest nominee the party has ever had since Thom as Jefferson first promulgated the principles of Democracy It is to the men who battled on in the face of defeat without the hope of reward that the Democrats owe their allegiance and not those who deserted in the thickest of the fray It is right and proper that now while the bright star of Destiny is shining full upon the upturned faceof William Jennings Bry an lightening his pathway to the Presidentialelection in 1908 and gladdening the hearts of his friends of the past and adding warmth to their support in the futureit is right and proper we say that the Democrats ofttrict should send to the next Congress one who has been his friend undaunted and undismayedand for this reason ifs inroihr7 Williani Jennings Price should receive the nomination But there are many other reasons why Mr Price should be so honored He is a man of eminent ability an orator and a lawyer of distinc tion Recognizing his superior qnal ities he has twice bern nominated and elected County Attorney of Boyle without opposition in either party He has fully requited the trust reposed in him in the dis charge of his duties is prosecuting the great corportions with the same energy and skill with which he has upheld the majesty of the law when individuals have been ar raigned before the bar of justice showing neither fear nor favor He is a graduate of both the literary and law departments of Centre College and won the honors of a large class Concerning his address upon that occasion exGov J Proctor Kuott said it was the most brilliunt he had ever heard He has for some time held a chair in the Law School of Central Univer sity both to the satisfaction of the trustees and the advancement of the students among whom as throughout his county he is uni versally popular To sum up he is a man of exera plary habits a hard student a deep thinker learned in the la and sifted with a splendid flow of eloquence one who would be a credit to the district and an honor to his constituents He is the ideal candidate and the most practical exponent of the reforms which public sentiment demands and now that he has entered the race carrying with hun a straight Demo cratic record ability and determination l we

expected has happened The Beckham machine has split notiIiedare not men to ruu for Governor and Auditor that the people dont want them The trouble with Percy is this He is campaigl1lfor get someoutsiders on the slate so the people of the State would not cry the machine at him But Hines and Hager who had fought the Governors battles wanted to run and they did not horned off by Hay and BeckhamI In other words they did to step down and out in order that the Governor should better further his political aspirations so they went quietly to work and organized their forces had a meeting of the State Central and Executive Com mittees appointed a sub committee to arrange the details of the prima ry and elected a man of their choice over Haly for Secretary of the committee This enraged Haly to suchan extent that he immediately published salty article in which he scored Hager Hines Vreeland et al and warned the people that they were not the right men for the places to which they aspire Per cy knows the right men He says McChesney is the right man for Auditor Morgan Chinn for Secretary of State but will not say just now who he favors for Governor mentioning however severalmen none of whom would ruu uuder any circustances if they new Haly stood sponser for them Governor Beckham will no doubt reiterate his former statement that he ex pects to keep hands off in the other races but he couldn if he would Hines expects him to use his pat ronage in his behalf and McChes ney expects the same thing so as he cannot serve them both there must inevitably bea split If the machine has gone to pieces as it now seems and there is to be a freeforall fight for the offices it is not hard to guess who will be the next Senator He is now sitting quietly at home directing his cam paign and saying nothing but watching the rumpus in the ene mys camp which far be it from us to say he was instrumental in bring ing about The people want a new Ideal They are tired of having the stacked such fellowsbp as Haly and his crowd Percy has helped put the screws to many a poor fellow but his political days are numbered and he is now getting a dose of his own medicine In this issue appears the an nouncement of the Hon Harvey Helm of Lincoln county as a can didate for Congress In Eighth dis trict to succeed the Hon G G Gil bert To the voters of Rockcastle no word of introduction or com mendation is necessary He is well and favorably known to us all Well do we remember the gallant right which he made two and which he lost by only a hairsbreadth He is one of Kantuckys noblest sons a true and loyal democrat a lawyer of marked ability and a splendid advocate If hon ored with the office which he seeks would be a credit to the grand cld Eighth AT a meeting of the represents

16500000 to the latters 5000000 we cannot figure out wherein the Bluegrass city has any kick coming It only took the jury which tried Hargis and Callahan twenty minutes to return a verdict not guilty and it might truthfully be said that was twenty minutes more than they needed Hargis and Callahan may not be guilty but the honest fairminded people will be slow to believe it Curt Jet on the witness

Delicate of All Instruments The instruments invented for the recording of the motions of the earths crust during an earthquake are looked upon bj scientists as the most deli cate of all machines So highly sen sitive are they indeed that the very slightest vibratory motion is recorded perfectly Even the tread of feet can not escape this instrument if sufficient to cause vibration There are three classes of instru ments for the automatic recording of earthquakes each with its own partic ular function First is the seismo scope which will merely detect and re cord the fact that there has been an earth tremor Some of these are so equipped as to indicate the time of the disturbance Second is the seismometer the func tion of which is to measure the maxi mum force of the shock either with or without an indication of its direction The third instrument is the seismograph which is so arranged that it will accurately record the number succession direction amplitude and period of successive oscillations The last instrument is by far the most delicate of the three In the construction of this earth quakerecording machine the maker must so suspend a heavy body that when its normal position is disturbed in the most infinitesimal degree no reactionary force will be developed tending to restore it to its position The inventor has never been found who could accomplish this suspension of a body to perfection The seismograph of today however has reached a stage of perfection where close approximations are obtained in the records made The complementary part of the strument is composed of a system of levers connecting an astatically sus pended body with various surfaces that are moved h clockwork These surfaces are constructed of highly sen sitive material on which needles play- as the suspended weight responds to the vibrations of the earths crust The most elaborate of these machines are capable of recording the vertical and two horizontal motions of the earth in the case of a seismic disturbance 0HAD A GOOD SPANKING Boy Rescued From Drowning Mother Administers an Addi tional Lesson veryhumanfront on the outskirts of New York City where Signora Genaro who re cently came to

CHRISTIAN NAMES Educated Indian Tribesmen Selected by the Great Father 10 Ke christen BravesBobtailed Coyote Becomes Robert T Wolf Uncle Sam has recently inaugurated a unique and ingenious project in con nection with his Indian wards or at least the most populous division of them This is nothing less than a scheme for renaming every chief oral brave every squaw and papoose of the Sioux tribe The object of this wholesale rechristening is to insure the right descent of property something that has been attended with much difficulty under the old condition of affairs when the Sioux had no family name and each redskin could be identified only by his own individual fanciful name a cognomen which most likely had not the slightest resemblance to those of any of his relatives The renaming of the 25000 mem hers of the Sioux Indian tribe was or dered by President Roosevelt on the advice of Ilamlin Garland and George Bird Grinuell well known authors and other persons who have made a study of the needs of the Indians To decide upon the r naming was however an easy matter in comparison to the actual carrying out of the strange undertaking SUSPICIONS OF THE INDIANS The President and his advisors real ized from the outset that it would be one thing to give the Indians new names and quite another to induce the sons and daughters of the forest ever suspicious of the white mento accept and use these new names However the Great Father atWashing ton was fortunate enough to enlist the cooperation of Dr Charles Alexander Eastman a highly educated physician and clergyman who is a fullblooded Sioux and who came into national prominence some time since when he married Elane Goodale the talented tlIeIsolicitation Eastman who is considered the best educated Indian in the world agreed to personally undertake the task of inducing his people to adopt the system of family names desired by the government Just what this responsibility meant will be better understood when it is explained that not only was Dr East man to visit nil the Indian villages of the Sioux tribe and personally bestow names but he must also devise or in vent the new names Just imagine selecting given names for 25000 per sons of bout sexes and apportioning perhaps half as many or one third as many different family names in ad dition In this portion of his novel mission ary work for Uncle Sam the Name Giver as the Sioux now term their educated tribesman has displayed rare judgment and a fine regard for family history and tradition among the Sioux a thoughtfulness that has done much to win the good will of these intelligent hut conservative IlHliansI for the new project sible he has perpetuated an Indians olu name in his new one For instance IliglmeagleBobtailed PUlllllldnhasPumpian Dr Eastman has been making a round of all the Sioux reservations partinNorthwest When he arrives at a headquartersforinhabitants his first move is to have a conference with the chief men or counselors of the place They in turn EAGLE TRACK send out a herald or town crier to summon all the people to a sort of mass meeting and at this the Name Giver explains the Presidents wishes at length THROUGH INDIAN SUBTLETY- At the outset many of the assembled Indians may be prone to grumble against the new system but grad ually Dr Eastman will win them over and in his labors thus far he has not encountered more than half a dozen Indians who have steadfastly refused to change their names However hundreds of the Indians have con fided to him that they would accept the new system of names only because they had the assurance of a fellow tribesman Dr Eastman that it was a good plan and that they would never have tolerated It had a white man come among them and broached the scheme Although the renaming of the Sioux Is not yet completed It has already been proven that the new system of names will lIe of reitest benefit and value in insuring the correct descent of Government allotments of land from generation to gen eration Incidentally it may be noted that even thus early this untangling of lines of descent has won for some Indians valuable property rights previously denied them As a case in point it may be cited that only a few weeks ago Dr Eastman was intru mental in securing for a young squaw MO acres of rich land of high value which had been temporarily lost to her owing to her separation from her own tribe and which an unscrupulous relative was on the point of selling when President Roosevelts special commissioner stepped in and set things tightPhoning Through Flesh To talk

of the great centres which are constantly striving to secure a portion of the local wealth This local self sufficiency may be fostered by au dividual and cooperative determi nation to bring the town up to its highest possible plane of comfort general usefulness and beauty to its resi dents This may be described as a movement for civic improvement The accumulation of considerable wealth in many American villages and towns during the last ten or twenty years the development of popular education and the increase of leisure has given an opportunity for the performance of public duties such as had not seemed to exist to the young man or woman of the former generation who in the effort to secure a livelihood and establish a home had given little thought to the duties of citizenship and social responsibilities It is only within a comparatively few years that nature study has entered into any of the publicschool work or even manual training while there are many who yet think that such institutions as gymnasiums baths playgrounds and even vacation schools and free lectures are unnecessary timeconsumers for the young Nevertheless the general movement for a better education along rural lines and for backyard and street improvement and the general betterment of the village and town is rapidly in creasing As an instance of this even in such n large city as St Louis girls mild boys are given practical instruction in gardening through the Junior School of Horticulture of the Missouri Botanical Gardens The children are permitted to sell their own products a decided stimulus to their ecrlsand in this way many of them enconsiderable pocket money for vacation time This school has been in operation for a number of years and is of great value to the citizens as well as to the children of the city the latter Of whom would otherwise know practi cally nothing of nature as country Children know it Even in Texas the school garden and town improvement idea has made headway although there has boon greater difficulty in obtaining popular Approval and support possibly than in any other section of the country owing to the fact perhaps that the Lone Star State has vast areas of unoe crpied laud and to the fact that the influential majority has been but a short time removed from the cattle range business However the more centralized of society has taken the matter up and it is stated that the most publicspirited citizens of the towns and cities together with the progressive teachers have made school gardens and rural education a success during the past two seasons and have aroused such enthusiasm among the pupils that wherever it has been the school garden has become a fixture gardenand flowers learn through his own small experience something of the influence of

When the reformers have settled the industrial labor questions they will not be calling for less hours of work but a distribution of the hours of work Six hours in the factory or the mine and the balance at home working on an acre of ground may be made a solution of the whole question between labor and capital Any man with a home and one acre of the earths surface that he can call his own and with employment at fair wages during five or six hours of the day need never fear want for himself or his family Under such conditions his family can be reared and educated and live under the advantages of a wholesome social atmosphere Synopsis of preceding chapters at end of this installment CHAPTER IX Sir Nigel who had entered the room with a silveryhaired old lady upon his arm stared aghast at this sudden burst of candor Maude Maude said he shaking his head it is more hard for me to gain obedience from you than from the tenscore drunken archers who followed me to Gtiinne Yet hush little one for your fair ladymother will be here anon and there is no need that she should know it We will keep you from the provostmarshal this journey Away to your chamber sweeting and keep a blithe face for she who con fesses is shriven And now fair mother he continued when his daughter had gone sit you hero by the lire for your blood runs colder than it did Alleyne Edricson I would have a word with you for I would fain that you should take service under me And here in good time comes my lady with out whose counsel it is not my wont to decide aught to import but indeed it was her own thought that you should comeFor I have formed a good opinion of you and can see that you are one who may be trusted said the Lady Coring And in good sooth my dear lord hath need of such a one by his side for he reeks so little of himself that there should be one there to look to his needs and meet his wants You have seen the cloister It were well that you should see the world too ere you make choice for life between them You can ride asked Sir Nigel looking at the youth with puckered evesYes I have ridden much at the ab beyYet there is a difference betwixt a friars hack and a warriors destrier You can sing and play On citole flute anti reheck Good You can read blazonry Indifferent well- I trust that you ere lowly and ser viceableI served all ny life my lord Canst carve too rI have carved two days a week for thebrethrenA truly Wilt make a squire of squires But toll me pray canst curl hair No mv lord but I could learn It Is of Import said he for I love to keep my hair well ordered see- Ing that the weight of my helmet for thirty years hath in some degree frayed it upon the top It is for you also to bear the purse said the lady for my sweet lord is of so free and gracious a temper that ho would give it gayly to the first who asked alms of him All these things with some knowledge of venerie and of the management of horse hawk and hound with the grace and hardihood and courtesy which are proper to your age will make you a fit squire for Sir Nigel Loring Alas lady Alleyne answered I know well the great honor that you have done me in deeming me worthy to wait upon so renowned a knight yet I am so conscious of my own weik ness that I scarce dare incur duties which I might be so ill fitted to fullilIJfodesty and a humble mind said she are the very first and gifts in page or squire Your ftp that you have these and all the rest is but the work of use and of time We can scarce hope said Sir Nigel to have all ready for our start before the feast of St Luke for there is much to be done in the time You will have leisure therefore if it please you to take service under me in which to learn your devoir And I have one favor to crave from you added the lady of the castle as Alleyne turned to leave their presence You have as I understand much learning which you have acquired at Beaulieu I would have you give an hour or two a day whilst you are with us in discoursing with my daughter the Lady Maude for she is somewhat backward I fear and hath no love for letters save for these poor fond ro mances which do but fill her empty head with dreams of enchanted maid ens and of errant cavalier Father Christopher comes over after nones from the Priory but he is stricken with years and slow of speech so that she gets small profit from his teaching I would have you do what you can with her and with Agatha my young tire woman and with Dorothy Pierpont And so Alleyne found himself not only chosen as squire to a knight but also as squire to three damozels which was even further from the part which he had thought to play in the world And now there camo a time of stir and bustle of furbishing of arms and clang of hammer from all the south land counties Fast spread the tidings from thorpe to thorpe and from castle to castle that the old game was afoot once more and the lions and lilies to be in the field with the early spring Great news this for that fierce old country whose trade for a generation had been war her exports archers and her imports prisoners For six years her sons had chafed under an unwonted peace Now they flew to their arms as to their birthright The old soldiers of Crecy of Nogent and of Poictiers were glad to think that they might hear the wartrumpet once more and gladder still were the hot youth who had chaffed for years under the mar tial tales of their sires To pierce tho great mountains of the south to fight the tamers of the fiery Moors to fol low the greatest captain of the age to find sunny cornfields and vineyards when the marches of Picardy and Nor mandy were as bare and bleak as the Jedburgh forestshere was golden prospects for a race of warriors From sea to sea there was stringing of bows in the cottage and clang of steel in tho did it take long for every strong hold to pour forth Its cavalry and every hamlet its footmen Through the late autumn and the early winter every road and country lane resounded with nakir and trumpet with the neigh of the warhorse and the clatter of march ing men In the ancient and populous county of Hampshire there was no lack of leaders or of soldiers for a servico which promised either honor or profit Greatest of all the musters however was at Twynham Castle for the name and the fame of Sir Nigel Loring drew toward him the keenest and bold est spirits all eager to serve under so valiant a leader Archers from the New Forest and the Forest of Bere billmen from the pleasant country which Is watered by the Stour the Avon and the Itchcn young cavaliers from the ancient Hampshire esialut were pushing for Christchurch service under the banner of the five scarlet roses And now could Sir Nigel have shown the bachelles of land which the laws of rank required he might well have cut his forked pennon into a square banner and taken such a following into the field as would have supported the dignity of a banneret But poverty was heavy upon him his land was scant his coffers empty and the very castle which covered him the holding of another Sore was his heart when he saw rare bowmen and warhardened spearmen turned away from his gates for the lack of the money which might equip and pay them Yet the letter which Aylward had brought him gave him powers which he was not slow to use In it Sir Claude Latour the Gas con lieutenant of the White Company assured him that there remained in his keeping enough to fit out a hundred archers and twenty menatarms which joined to the three hundred vet eran companions already in France would make a force which any leader might be proud to command Care fully and sagaciously the veteran knight chose out his men from the swarm of volunteers Many an anxious consultation he held with Black Simon Sam Aylward and others of his more experienced followers as to who should come and who should stay By All Saints Day however he had filled up his full numbers and mustered under his banner as stout a following of Hampshire foresters as ever twanged their warbows Twenty menatarms too well mounted and equipped formed the cavalry of the party while young Peter Terlake of Farcham and Walter Ford of Botley the martial sons of martial sires came at their own cost to wait upon Sir Nigel and to share with Alleynd Edricson the duties ot his squireship Yet even after the enrolment there was much to be done ere the party could proceed upon its way For ar mor swords and lances there was no need to take much forethought for they were to be had better and cheaper In Bordeaux than in England With the longbow however it was 1IfClrI ent Yewstaves indeed might in Spain but it was well to take enough and to spare with him Then three spare cords should be carried for each bow with a store of besides the brigandines arrowheadsI the wadded steel caps sarts or armguards which were the proper equipment of the archer Above all the women for miles round were surIcoatsof the breast When all was completed and the muster called In the castle yard the oldest soldier of the French wars was fain to confess that he had never looked upon a better equipped or more warlike body of men from the knight with his silk jupon sitting his great black warhorse in the front of them to Hordle John the giant re cruit who leaned carelessly upon a huge black bowstave in the rear Of the six score fully half had seen ser vice before while a fair sprinkling were men who had followed the wars all their lives and had a hand in those battles which had made the whole world ring with the fame and the won der of the English infantry Six long weeks were taken in these preparations and it was close on Mar tinmas ere all was ready for a start Nigh two months hind Alleyne Edric son been in Castle Twynham months were fated to

At times too when the wild fit was upon her she would into pert ness and rebel openly against Alleynes gentle firmness Yet he would jog quietly on with his teachings taking no heed to her mutiny until suddenly she would be conquered by his patience and break into selfrevilings a hun dred times stronger than her fault de manded It chanced however that on ono of these mornings when the evil

the list with about two million cases per annum Indiana with her million cases second followed in turn by New Jersey California Delaware and Ohio The canneries are permanent institutions the demand is increasing and there is no reason why the growing of tomatoes will not continue to be a profitable business with many Growing tomatoes for a cannery dif fers from raising them for the market In the former case first of all a largo yield is sought Early maturity is of less importance since the grower con tracts to sell the whole croptt a fixed price It is said that good corn land is rich enough for tomatoes although medium clay loam is preferred by manySplendid results follow fall or winter plowing At any rate land should be plowed as early in the spring as possible Plow deep and follow with earth mulching that is maintain a thin layer of fine earth on the surface by shallow cultivation which will be of great value in saving the moisture The variety should be such as the canneries prefer They will generally provide the plants at a nominal price to those who grow toinatr s for them In case it is preferred to grow the plants near where they are to be set they should be started in a cold frame or on the south side of a board fence in a rich warm soil The plants will increase to proper size in four or five weeks and should be set out in the field in rows about four feet apart for ease of cultivation Start the cultiva tion early but be careful not to bark the plants as that will kill them When they begin to branch do not cultivate closer than the ends of tl branches Continue stirring the soil THE GOOD WAY until the stalk has grown so heavy as to fall upon the ground then cease For heavy yields it is essential that strong land or heavy fertilization be used While it is true that on of the soils in the Middle States munerative crop may be produced with little fertilization it is also true that on nearly all of these soils a liberal use of fertilizers will be profitable The tomato plant is a gross feeder and especially requires an abundant supply of potash Prof Voorhees of New Jersey who is authority on such subjects estimates that ten tons of fruit with the vines would contain fiftyseven pounds of nitrogen sixteen of phosphoric acid and ninetyfour pounds of potash On many of our clay lands phosphoric acid is relatively low and the applica tion of potash is needc to pro uce the most profitable crops The nitrogen supply is more variable and can often be secured by turning under a leguminous crop On Eastern lands which have been devoted to last years toma toes nitrate of soda can be used with a profit In the Central States manu facturers of fertilizers have not offered goods specially prepared for this vegetable because of a lack of demand due largely to the ignorance of same and from lack of knowledge of the require ments of the soil But of late both tine growers and the canners are asking for advice regarding fertilizers to be used on tomatoes A mixture that has been officially contains Nitrogen 4 per cent acid 7 per cent Potash 12 per cent using about f00 pounds of this mixture per acre Some of early tomatoes seem to indicate that sulphate of potash gives them a better quality A properly made tobacco fertilizer is also suited for this crop and the potash in it is derived from sulphate mystedona spots the our Solar I and see

studentr Model Dairy Farm The Department of Agriculture has recently published a bulletin coiitaiu lag suggestions for constructing a model dairy barn It has been the endeavor of the Department to plan a barn embodying the best ideas in seiemiCc and sanitary construction tht rr consistent vvi practicability and cheapness and it ill believed the result accomplished b the plan published will help the dairyman to get liie best products from his cows in the luiost economical manner The plan is designed for 24 cows trod allows ample roon for calf peus and box stalls for bull and cows also pace for feed room hay chute wash room and silo In presenting the plan It is not intended by the officials of V WHICH POSE AS BLOSSOMS Department to insist that the arrange ment shown is the only satisfactor one but the idea to present some important features often overlooked by the builder and which are vital to a wellplanned structure The amount of space allowed for the various purposes named on the plan is thought to the requirements so far as the square feet of floor space is concerned The arrangement of the space can be adapted to the needs of the particular location The design calls for a width of 30 feet 4 inches outside There are two main reasons for adopting this width first it allows ample room for the stalls and passageways and second It permits of the most economical HQ of lumber in building The lengtu shown is 84 feet but this feature is wholly dependent on the number of cows the dairyman wishes to handle One of the weakest joints in barn con struction is the small amount of window space usually allowed This error is rectified by the Department in this plan by allowing approximately 6 square feet for each cow The bulletin or circular may be ob tained by
