their way in the fastnesses of the swami and wandered for days in an effort to escape the tangle of vegetation and perils of the lost country of persons who fled to the dismal region to evade officers

A KENTUCKY FREAK Queer Oil Well Flows Only in the Month of November There is an old oil well near Payne Creek six miles from Barbourville which is a puzzle to the oil men of the coun try The well which is noV in the middle of the creek flows regularly every November but never at any other time of the year During the month it flows at intervals dis charges great streams of oil gas aud salt water and sud denly stops to flow no more until November comes around againThis strange well was drilled in 1840 on the bank near Payne Creek by old set tIers who were after salt water from which to obtain their salt The machinery used at that date was of the crudest nature yet the drill ers succeeded in getting down 450 feet when to their aston ishment and disma they struck an immense stream of oil which flowed for days and weeks In the course of time the bed of the creek changed un til at this day it flows Over the top of the old well Since then during every November the water over and around the hole boils up through the force of escaping gas As far back as the people in the neighborhood can recol lect the well has made these annual eruptions This year the disturbance came some what earlier than usual attracting more than ordinary attention owing doubtless to the fact that oil men are operating in that section of the country Barbourville News A Cold Wave The forecast of

official a salary of 1800 and allowances for one clerk and office expenses But succeeding Legislatiures have seen fit to give all the fees of the office of the secretary and add those of the office of commissioner of insurance The feesof these offices are sim ply tremendous The secre tary gets 1050 for each char ter issued He gets all the notarys commissions fees and fees for issuing requisi tions by the Governor cifor prisoners that go out of the territory and 35 per cent of all the fees of the insurance business of the territory which has grown enQrmous His salary and the fees of the office as it now is organized lire reacned the princely sum of 20000 to 25000 a year Ex Should the Preacher Enter Politics Should the preacher enter politics Certainly not as a profession but in the proclamation of righteousness he must necessarily have to do with the politician and with the affairs of government even as in preaching honesty purity love he is declaring principles that touch every business and avocation of life The preacher cannot be side tracked orngiven to understand that his business belongs to Sunday and the church Every day is his day of opportunity every realm is his field of service and duty all places if they be entered in the spir it of his master furnish him with a pulpit to the extent that preaching becomes a mere professionhaving to do with certain things that can be labeled and classified The preacher is provincial to the extent that preaching is the proclamation of the gos pel of life the preacher has this world in the words of Wesley as his parish I

Lexing ton Democrat who claims to be authority on kissing says Forcibly kissing a woman against her will is one of the most unsatisfactory as well as one of the mostfoolish per formances a sane man ever attempted It is a waste of effort and no good whatever in itV Recently a middle aged mnin New York was required by a jury to pay 200 to a middleaged woman for having kissed her once against her will and now a july at Oshkosh Wis has decreed that a wealthy mine owner must pay 500 loa young woman of his acquaintance for having kissed her tliree times forcibly and against her consent The juries acted rightly Men idiotic enough to take kisses that way should be made to pay dearly for them A kiss without the full consent and participatiQn of the kisses is as insipid as cold soup as unpalatable as flannel cakes and as juiceless as baled hay or cotton batting THE Valley View Argent says The editor and his fourteenyearold son set the type and made up the forms for this edition of the Argent

still Lancaster Turnpike Company against the Madison Fiscal Court pending in the Court of Appeals The main question involved in this case was what was the true standard of value The stock of the company had been selling at and above par for many years and the capital stock amounted to twenty thousand dollars Judge Scott was of the opinion that the true measure of value waswhat it would cost to make tho road The Court of Appeals lays down as the Kentucky doctrine that when property is taken from the citiz n for public parposes its value is what it is worth to the owner and not what it is worth lo the taker and it accordingly fixed the value of the Richaond and Lancaster turnpike at twenty thousand dollars with interest from the time the property was taken instead of sixteen thousand dollars the amount fixed by the lower court J A Sullivan represented the Appellant and J Tevis Cobb the county RELIGIOUS Rev William Crowe of Frankfort will preach at the Kirksville Presby terfan

EIectioriLawsmended E F Branch ol Martins ville a member of the Indiana House of Representa tives proposes to do away with corruption of elections in this State by amending the election laws so that no man delinquent in his polltax shall be permitted to vote He has given his theory much con sideration and he has confi dence in it Several years ago the pres ent Australian system of vot ing was adopted in hopes of checking the wholesale buying of votes but it has proved a flat failure as it is believed more votes were bought in the recent election than ever before The Republicans had a big slush fund thatwa used unsparinglywherever it was needed and it is estimated that at least 40000 votes were paid for A few years ago the law provided that both the vote buyer and the vote seller should be punished but the Republicans repealed this on the pretense that it was an incentive to both parties to the deal to keep quiet The law now provides only for the punishment of the vote seller The vote buyer has absolute free license There is pro vision for disfranchisementof men who sell but there have not been many prosecutions under the Jaw The amend ment suggested by Represen tative Branch wQuld be effec tive mapy say but it is so radical that the Republicans are not liable to stand for it as it would take their power awayIt notorious fact that in this city the negroes hold the balance of power in every election Ninety per cent never pay poll taxes If the Republicans could not vote these men they would not only lose the city but the State as well Both sides are talking of some effective amendment of the law to prevent whole sale vote buying but it is queitly predicted the Repub licans will not permit change that will lessen their power- DispatchtoLouisvilleTimes Money From Ashes C J Kahn a baker in Har rodsburg while baking bread one night last week put 120 in a tin baking powder box and placed it on a bench near where he was working A wooden hoe had inadvertently been thrown on top of the bake oven just over the bench where the money was The baker went into another room to look after some bread The fire in the oven set the hoe handle on fire and a portion of the handle was burned off In falling the burning piece of handle knocked the box containing the money into a pile of trash and paper The pa per hoe handle and contents of the tin box were burned The baker forwarded the ashes to the Bureau of Redemption in the Treasury Department The experts of the Redem tion Bureau who have been working on the remains say that he will undoubtedly re ueive about
