(uleringplan i TpHtbp CaijadianonmeU rYast.tr .ns- - ejim atlantic service via Newfoundland, enabling Americans to journey half way to Ireland by Pullman car, is a Most suggestive piece of news. persons, indeed, will be startled at the thought that it is really possible to travel by land, with, two insignificant breaks, to a point 1,500 miles on the way to Kurope. It is proposed to make Green Bay, N. F., the terminal point for a line of fast steamships, which would leave only 1,500 miles to run before reaching the west coast of Ireland. It needs little labor to complete a route by which the man from Mon- -' treal, or the man from Chicago, or the man from New Vork may be whisked to Green Hay on a Pullman car without changing. Fifty miles of a railway must be constructed to connect Green Bay with the Reid railway system, and two car ferries must be established one from Point au Basque to Cape Breton, and the other across the Strait of Canso. One's first impulse in contemplating this proposal is to ask: "Why has such a simple thing never yet been accomplished?" And the answer is sufficiently obvious. It is: "Because Canada and Newfoundland are not parts of the United Stctcs, but the possessions of an alien power." If destiny were not sometimes so deliberate in its movements-- if every part of this continent had been United all these years under the Stars ami Stripes the Newfoundland route, placing America within three days of Europe, would now be a commonplace.

THE RECORD, rrnusncii tiiuusuath nr How Murphy Ran a Paper. Capt. David A. Murphy, of blessed memory, contributes a column to a recent issue of the Oxford (Ohio) News, in which he gives some ideas and experiences in journalism. The Captain, while in Danville, "Turned on the Light, " "Told the Truth to Dixie," and did other interesting things which brought him fame, if not fortune. Referring to those blissful days, the Captain grows happy. He says: "In March, 1880, I founded and started the Danville (Ky.) Tribune, rollicking republican weeka red-ho- t, ly, and it was my supreme delight as its editor to 'Tell the Truth to DixDuring the presidential camie.' paign of 1884 1 was compelled to edit rethat journal with one volver and one republican platform, one pair of scissors and one Webster's Dictionary, one bowie-kLTnabridged twelve inches long and one one baseball club ready paste-po- t, and one clean crash towel, one small devil and one large dog. And I was mighty thankful that no body harmed me!" self-cockinife Coal Famine. The coal mines of Madisonville have had some unusual experiences during the present cold spell, says the Hustler. They have never had such a tremendous demand for. coal since the mines were in operation. They receive orders by every mail and by telegraph from nearly every town in several states asking for hurry shipments. The local demand has been the heaviest ever known, and many people right here in Madisonville were unable to get coal delivered Saturday. The telephone lines have been kept hot with messages to the varjous mines and livery stables, asking for coal to be delivered. The cold snap caught people generally with only a limited supply of coal on hand, as very few of our people ever order more than one load at a time, and never before had any trouble getting a load on day ordered. But on account of the severe weather the consumption has been enormous, and the short supply on hand was soon licked up and everybody seemed to get out about Saturday. To add to the difficulty the hoisting apparatus at Reineckc mines were out of fix a few days last week and wagons were delayed in loading. This has been repaired and the town demands will be supplied with more promptness hereafter. There have been several close rubs among many families,, but by assistance of neighbors most all have been able to keep in fuel up to the present. Earlington has been a scene of great activity during the cold spell. The L. and N. train officials have, from superintendent down, been at Earlington assisting in moving coal trains. Coal trains have the right of way at present and everything possible is being done to supply the demand that is coming from almost everywhere in range of the mines. A coal train was sidetracked af Crofton the other day and ten or fifteen farmers moved their wagons alongside the cars and loaded them. Trainmen protested to no avail. The men said they did not propose to freeze. Forbes Bros, got a car at Hop- kinsville, but it was surrounded by a host of people, white and black, who About (Odd Signboards.

Fox It is reported There are pillars of the church, and sleepers of the church, but .he former has no official stand ing. In a case referred to him, Acting Commissioner Wilson deci-e- d that revenue stamps are not required on deeds for church pews, saying: "The interest of the is in the nature of an easement." Now that his privilege has officially recognized, the man who goes to sleep during services need not look so shamcd-facc- d when he is awakened by the last song. pew-hold- er It is announced that the biggest building in the world is soon to be erected in the business center of New York City, site not yet divulged, by the Merchants' Association of that city. It is proposed to inaugurate the new century by holding a great industrial exposition in it. Thereafter, however, it is to remain as a permanent institution. The site will, it is said, cover eight city blocks, and the building will be at least sixteen times as large as Madison Square Garden, the converging streets and a street railwav to traverse it. It is hoped, to complete it by 1902, when the proposed exposition is to be held. The greatest fox chase of which there is any authentic record took place in the neighborhood of Long Branch, in Meade county, last week. Ben Matthews, a colored man living at Long Branch, has a fox hound named Queen. One evening last week, when the air was soft, Queen and her companion, Don, together with Jim Bickcrstaff's "Old Maje" started for hills near by, and were not long absent when they started a vigorous old fox. By their vigorous mouthing it was known that they had a warm scent and were on the trail of a fox of fine staying qualities. For several hours during the night residents of that vicinity could hear all three hounds tongucing together, and then the two male dogs dropped out of the run, leaving Queen toj keep up the chase alone. All night long she followed the trail, and along toward morning was joined by some fresh hounds, who stayed with her a few hours, fell out, rested up and joined in the chase again at intervals during the next twenty hours. On the second day of the chase Will "Tigc," a hound noted for its staying qualities, joined her and remained until the close of the run. Queen was on the run, without rest, the entire thirty-si- x hours consumed in the chase. She stopped only when she had run reynard to cover. After she had accomplished this she lay down and guarded the burrow, and when found by her owner was so stiff and sore that she could not move a limb and had to' be carried to the house. Matthews her owner, thinks she is the best foxhound on earth, and would not trade her for the best horse in Kentucky. Breckenridge Subscribe ' News. had.-Norw- Tho following notice was handed J. R.

Everybody ought to know that the very best thing he can do is to eat apples just before going to bed. The apple is excellent brain food, because it has more phosphoric acid, in an easily, digestible shape, than any other fruit known. It excites the action of tho liver, promotes sound and healthy sleep, and thorough disinfects tho mouth. It also agglutinates the surplus acids of the stomach, helps tho kidney secretion and prevents calculus growth, while it obviates indigestion and is one of the best preventives of diseases of the throat. iXext to lemon and orange it is also the best antidote for the thirst and craving of persons addicted to the alcohol and opium habit.

No satisfactory spraying material except kerosene has been dis- , chards set out on.soils entirely for them. Some people have the idea that the poorer the soil the better it will be for the apple orchard. This opinion- evidently arose from the experience of people in setting out orchards on very rich land and finding them ununited for them. They quite naturally inferred that if the rich land wast not good the poor land must bti good. But rich land is not suitable, for the reason that it occasions' a too great growth of wood and not enough of fruit buds. As we say: "It all grows to foiliage!" Land should be rich" enough to insure a good growth of wood, but not too rich to permit fruit buds to develop in largo numbers. Generally n meadow will be found unsuitable, for the reason wtonds so near the tlxit the surface that the Tootsi are soaked during n large part of the year. The water does not have to lie near the surface to do this, for, ns is well known, the roots of apple trees- penetrate very deeply into the ground, sometimes seven or more feet. The hill location Is gener ally "best for the apple orchard, for the reason that there Is no underlying sheet of water. .The drainage is natural nnd rapid, and the roots are always able to do their work without interference. A medium clay soil is generally good, for tho reason that in it the fertility ishcld till taken, up by the roots. A sandy soil gets rapidly poor, and when fertilized leaches so badly that much of the mnmire is lost. soll-wnt- nr.d we find in many cases apple orunsuit-e- d According to Tho Livo Stoolc Indicator, a great change hns taken plaoo in regard to tho valuos placed upon heifers by buyers of fat cuttle duriug tho last fow years.

Iu this manner tho water i A'uirried off and prevents dampness about tho hives. So says A. H. Duff in Toxns Farm aud Bunch, nud his further remarks about tho entrance to hives arc as follows: Thu cntrnuco to tho hives has much to do with tho comfort of the boos, not ouly in winter, but in Eummcr also. It is necessary at all times to hnvo tho ground sloped up to tho top of the bottom board, that tho bees when droppiug in front of thu hivo can roach tho cntrnuco by crawling nnd without again taking wing. Whou the weather is cool, they frequently como homo iu n condition and aro unablo to tako wing tho second time, nnd tho result is thoy die near thoir own homo in largo numbers thus. Bees coming in loaded with houoy should bo provided with this convoniouco ns woll. Tho grcutost damago is douo during tho winter, and it docs not tako muoh loss of boes in this manner to greatly weaken tho colony at this timo of year when they aro at thoir lowest number. Bco3 frequently cloan houso in winter ou days that aro pretty cool and so cold that no boos will appear ou tho outsido. Thoy will thus carry dead bees from tho back part of tho hives and deposit thorn in front and near the entrance. Iu doing this work thoy ofteu clog tho entrance with dead beos eo tightly that thoy aro unablo to get out when a warm day comes, and in such cases it is necessary to open up thoeutruueofor them.
