made known on application MEMBER OF KENTUCKY PRESS ASSOCIATION AN INTERESTING COUPLE Feeldon L Warren and wife who spent Satuiday and Sunday with their grandson F Bloomer r on the Mose Morris place south west of town came straight to Kansas from Kentucky less than a year ago they have never had their 1native speech ruined by an educa tion no college or school has ever tampered with their rs or the ys they rnnfiryHi wnrfias hyrs t and to hear them talk is a joy only equalled by Patrick Byrnes brogue They are direct irpm the soil mi pleasingand rapidly passing characters ofa day that is past Mr Warren was 82 years of age the 23d ot last September and has lived so close to Nature all his life that he doesnt look it He was born PulaskiPcounty Kentucky the sixth of eleven children and the family didnt always know at breakfast just where dinner was coming from but it always came and there were always thirteen big appetites ready for it The father was a farmer and found time in the cultivation of the soil to train himself for a Baptist preacher He also taught a subscription school and Feelden had the great privilege of going to him for forty days This was when he was even and this was all the education he had It was the last school the father taught his death occurred shortly after In those x days a widow didnt send her children to an orphanage she struggled bravely to keep her litile family together and as soon as the children could walk alone they began to work to assist her Feelden Warren wonders now how they got along on the little bit of rocky soil which was their home but they dug some kind ofa living out ot it living chiefly on hug meat and corn bread with tree sugar for sweetening Hundreds of pounds of tree sugar were made by the family which they sold for lo cents a pound Flour cost 4 a hundredweight and after corn bread all week Sunday became a holiday with something more than a religiou significance attached because they had white biscuits for breakfast Feelden stayed by his mother till he was 24 and the youngest child was a ploughboy and then he struck out for himself He went to the Cumberland riverr coal banks and hauled coal to the river and his idle time worked on boats for himself He had three on the river in 1851 mid one boat contained 6000 bushels of Cumber land coal worth 50 cents a bushel and all three sank leaving Feel den worse than penniless he was 625 in the hole When a man is unfortunate and the world looks darkest if he is married he com mits suicide and if he is single he gets married and Feelden being single and having no joys to share with anyone got married in order to divide his sorrow He married Jane Keeney and if Mr Warren is delightful because he has not been contaminated by the ideas found in books think how equally interesting is his wife who never went to school a day in her life and who can neither read nor write But she has done things that counted far more iu her day and generation Born in April 1832 and one of a family of twelve children she began to spin at the age of 10i and was a brave little soldier in the Keeney army that fought for a living when children of to day are struggling with the alphabet Feelden Warren and Jane Keeney were married September 9 1852 after a courtsnip which dident cost the groom a cent and while the wedding was not of the procession order it was an affair 7Q7 Hats A t f f Iirg i oHats I400 Green I 50 2 OO t 3 00- t 1- 1 1 7 i ifYtii t i m Shirtsv5 OUr line of shirts is the best in town We have them in allSIZES from 50 cts to 2 r q y Gold Medal

Eunice Perkins pronounced Younicy by the mother William Franklin Matthew and Margaret Frances They lived in this section of the country until 1869 theyImoved to Rockcastle county where they lived thirtyseven years Were you in the war Mr Warren was asked No he said why should I be I wasnlt mad atI anybodyMr taught himself to read and write and made a par ticular study of the Bible He joined the Baptist church when 18 was made clerk of the church later ordained 2S deacon and made clerk of the Baptist association and was later ordained in the ministry Church services iq those days were more than they are today They occupied two days of the week The members would meet on Satur day to talk business andIIdeal with the disorderly received new SundayIand have heard Mr Warren in his pulpit in the little log cabin church in the mountains of Kent tucky over sixty years ago What a delight to have beard an exhortation in his native dialect For this devotion of two days in the week to the Lord with eleven children to raise on the other side Mr Warren never received more than 8a year Later he was made moderator of the association that means he explained that I was to eversee the gang and later was made speaker of the body when the Baptist met once a year he had charge of the meeting Mr Warren was never in a fight or lawsuit and this was in Kentucky Mr Warren worked in the fields and she spun and wove until two years ago when they felt that they had earned a rest and came to Kansas last winter to stay as long as they wanted They brought three beds with them One is at the home of their daughter Mrs Bob Cress two miles north of Holton the other is at the home of their son Matthew Warren at Monrovia and the other is at the home of their grandson J F Bloomer southwest of town When they get tired visiting at one place they go to another and having their own bed at each rest ing place tney feel free to go knowing that they will put none out Mrs Warren still has taBle linen

of candy and sweets In their youth Neither ever tasted such a thing and Mr Warren recalls that when he was a good sized boy his uncle sent himto the city and gave him 25 cents to spend on ginger cakes for himself That seemed wild extravagance to the boy and he bought a shoat with the money instead When Mr and Mrs Warren left Kentucky they brought tobacco along but they have only a little left and are in despair The tobacco here isnt as good as that they get at home Mrs Warren says and she ought to know for she smokes a pipe aid could never have raised those eleven children without the comfort she found in it She also cuts her husbands hair and altogether they look like a charming couple in a daguerreotype who have cotne back to life Mi and Mrs Warren have eighty five grandchildren f and

LOUlMO SS 1 1 I EVIDENTLY TO DEFEAT AN INCOME TAX Mr Taft thinks it would be trifling with the Supreme Court for Congress to pass an income tax law on the supposition that that tribunal would reverse itself adding that such action would not strengthen popular confidence in the stability of judicial construction of the constitution But even a big president like the present in cumbent of the office can be mis taken A majority ot the United States thought the decision 14 years ago which was made by court divided five to four both wrong and unfoYtunate and they want a court whose persoonel has been greatly changed to be given chance to affirm or reverse the former decision There is never great popular confidence in the decisions of divided court and the one on the income tax is no exception Mr Tafts suggestion as to constitutional amendment to an income tax is for the porpose apparently of delaying and preventing the democratic effort to secure an income tax The youn st inhabitant would hardly live to see the culmination of the slow process of constitutional amendment The two yearold of George Hollon li farmer of Stillwater fell out of rocking chair breaking its neck and dying
