Taylor of Ken toddy VVesloyun College at Win chester has sent the Lexington Lender the following communication urging the calling of nn extra session of the General Assembly to pass a county unit local option bill SIIAU THK IKOlKK nRI I1KAK1 l By an overwhelming majority the people of Kentucky want the County Unit Bill Governor Will son by his own utterances and by his platform pledge is bound to do nil in his power to secure this County Unit Bill to the people His own party at least twice defeated this bill een though pledg ed to its passage Rcrllsion trickery and deception this bill failed to puss the Senate Gov error Willson has the chance to demonstrate Mint ho was not a party to these reprehensible meth ods He can do it by devolving thee tinsat a time when there can be no ova sion or subterfuge possible Two of his oflicinl finally have already declared that they put party success before any pledges to the people Does Governor WillI son I am glad to see that men like lodge ORear Supt Urn bbe and Auditor James who have beer large factors in securing whatever I inI1 j ohliglIItions to redeem1 a promise I by I which they came into power i I toIbill cannot in any sense be defend ed from the standpoint that the extra session would entail a need less expense upon the State If this bill is not passed at a calledI session it is bound to come up Iii the regular session It need not take over three days to puss it at a called session and this would cost only about 15000 It will deadlock the Legislature at a regular session and practically prevent other legislations for + 550 days and cost the State nut less than X80 000 It is good principle good1 economy to put this bill out of the way by a culled session The man and the party that jug gle with deceive and disappoint

still be happyA is the onlyI laborer on earth who works for her board and clothes and Is expected to be grateful for the privilegeBut she appreciates a trip and a day off now and then The husband who doesnt econo mize on expressions of affection or stint his wife on praise may do as he will without friction or argument So long as he doesnt sink the lover In tho husband he need fear no rival He may forget every other rule but if he remembers this all will be well Even when the steak Is leather and the broad a cinder ho must merely remark that the meal Isnt quite up to her usual high standard of

Now Command a Pre miumLegend Says Cracked Die Foretold Fate of the Adven turerThe Facts The salo a few days ago for 27 each of two specimens of the gold 20 peso pieces coined for the unfortunate Em peror Maximilian of Mexico and dated 18GG brings attention to an interesting series of coins which made their ap pearance In the brief period of the at tempt to establish u European mon arch upon the throne of the Monte aumas Of course ono of tho first acts of Maximilian upon his accession to the throne was tho striking of coins bear Ing his portrait and title The silver coins were of 6 10 and CO qoutavos and 1 peso The copper coinage of Maximilian consisted of a single denomination the onecentavo piece The story was generally circulated at one time that only 90 pieces of the 20pesos denom inations were originally struck This statement has not been confirmed but it is a fact that the coir is scarce The first of the issues of Maxi milian attracted notice because of the statement that the engravers of the peices which show the emperors bust have executed the design in such a manner that by reversing tho coin a likeness of a donkey was produced It requires a great deal of imagination it may bo said to work out such are semblanceThere been an Impression that all the coins of Maximilian are scarce but this Is not so Great numbers of them were struck and us the Mexican dollar had for ninny years been a fa vorite form of currency In the orient millions of such pieces found their way to the eastern countries dur- Ing the reign of Maximilian The Idea that the onepeso piece was held at a high premium may be accounted for by the rumor In general circulation about 1868 that the American govern ment was buying up all the Maximil ian dollars ul live dollars euuh There is said to be one extremely rare variety of the one peso which was struck at the Mexican City mint in 1866 According to one story the first dies broke after 35 pieces had Ibeen coined and this number repre seated the age of Maximilian when he was shot It was said also that one ball pierced his forehead at the exact spot where a flaw appears in the die As a matter of fact says an expert numismatist a die did go to pieces after a few coins had been struck and tho subsequent dies were of far In ferior workmanship The coins of tho first set are identified by the letters on the inscription of the obverse which are shorter than those on the usual Is sues and there is a depression In the temple of the emperors portrait High Prices In India Increase in the price of grain and foodstuff throughout India has

Kongo Is contributed by Rev Thomas Lewis who says In the matter of preserving bodies for burial Kongos after the usual binding In cloth keep them for two or three months In their houses where a fire Is kept burning but In Zombo they are suspended on two forked sticks In a dugout vault in the ground which Is covered over with palm branches and earth Sometimes the body Is placed under a specially built grass roof In the open This Is not considered a burial and tour or five years ago they brought out for n big funeral feast and dance thee body of an Important chief that had thiu1 bjci preserved for over 20 years In other districts the dead are thrown nsy Into a river or Into the bush to lie devoured by Jackals and vul tures I have satisfied myself the same writer continues after 25 years of

mis sionaries In their literature The same Is true In regard to the name for devil The oftrepeated statement made by missionaries and travelers that the untaught native has no Idea of the ex istence of God Is not correct what they mean to say Is thai he hits no knowledge of what God Is which Is quite a different matter The tack of this knowledge about God while firmly believing that God Is ac
