of danger or excitement he may preserve an even mind when a ghost comes in to his room at mid night he may assume com mand and act nobly and well when the ship is sinking but let that man let any man upset his instaud and he springs to his feet makes a desperate grasp for the inkstand and knocks it half way caross the table claws after his paper and swoops them through the sable puddle to sage them tears his white silk handkerchief from his pocket and mops up the ink with it and after lIe has smeared the table his hands and his trous ers with ink as farasit could be made to go discovers that early in the engagement he knocked the inkstand clear off the table and it has been draining its lifeink away all that time in the center of the only light figure in the pat tern of the carpet

Post Check System Familiarity with the Pest Cheek currency plan is the chief essential to unqualified approval Acquaintance with it is easy The government issues lj 2and 5 bills much like Bank of England notes having blank spaces thereon These bills possess all the virtues of our present currency with this new one added That when the owner of one of them desires to re mit it thru the mails he sticks on a twocent stamp cancels it writes in the blank spaces his name and the name of the payee and the operation trans forms the currency into a check which will be paid on identification by any money order postoflice or by any bank This we should say is the extreme of facility and simplicity It provides everybody with a check book which he can fill out at will without the trouble even of making a deposit We would get clean fresh new bills always The West which owing to its dis tance from the jwints of issue is forced to handle more filthy and germcarrying money than the East must appre ciate the improvement No curtailment of the pres ent money order system is contemplated save to the ex tent that the people lessen its operation by the change to the far more convenient way of sending remittances which the Post Checkprovides The farmer need not go to the postoffice nor the city business man send to the sub station It is an additional convenience which undoubtedly would be come widely and warmly pop ular in the first six months of its operation Merchants will welcome it because the vol ume of trade always increases with added facility of doing business That wait at the money order window in the city that trip to the postoffice in rural communities have prevented no one knows bow many little commercial transactions which in the aggre gate no doubt are a large sum For

for chewing gum It was the best year the gum makers ever hadCleveland is the greatest gumchewing city in the coun try with Chicago a few laps behind and St Louis in third placeDuring 1902 the chewing gum trust marketed in round numbers 8500000 boxes of chewing gum Every box contained 100 sticks that re tailed at a penney each or 1 per box Most of the money found its way into the coffers of the gum trust The cen tral and western parts of the country use the most gum as the numerous small inde pendent plant in the East limit the sale of trust goods there The principal ingredient of trust gum is a substance known as chicle thegumfrom- the juice of the zapote a trop ical tree found in Mexico and Central America Its gum features were discovered in 1870 by Thomas Adams a Brooklyn photographer who tried to develop it into a sub stitute for rubber but failing accidentally discovered in it a basis of chewing gum and incidentally a fortune of sev eral millions for himself for a dozen other trust officers quite as wealthy and a com petent living for thousands of persons fortunate enough to own gum stock And the dear American public has made possible all these vast fortunes by patiently chewing

the railroads of the country this month The work will be done by special employes who are selected upon recommendations of con pressmen of the districts in which they work This reweighing is done every four years and it is ex pected that this year will show that there has been an enormous increase in the amount of mail handled It will take thirty days of consecutive work to get an approximate on the amount of mail carried Themagnitude of the work is shown by the fact that the government is paying some thing like 4000000 annually for the main routes to say nothingof the mail matter carried upon smaller roads The work of weighing the mail for the Indiana division will be carried on under the personal supervision of Cap tain H B Jenks ofLouisville superintendent of the Ohio Kentucky and Indiana divis ion of the railway mail service The mails will be weigh ed by the government before being placed aboard the train and then reweighed by the railway company Upon the tabulation furnished by their representatives the railroad companies will base their cal culation in submitting bids for contracts Nothing has yet been re ceived here regarding weigh ing the mail on this division Tragedy

Robert Breckinridge and former Congressman John K Hendricks The case will go through the lower and higher courts and the ques tion will be finally determined within two weeks An agricultural and live stock writer says the close of the year 1902 saw more hogs in sightthan ever before and a more active demand for their poduct at higher prices than the hog raisers have known for many years Coup led

Last Attracted to the Wealth of Waco Fields The great and historic county of MadleoQ is certainly destined to be the land of unbounded possibilities In the eastern end of the county embracing the entire north end of Waco voting precinct and extending between Mud dy and Drowning creeks is n wellde fined geological medley including an inexhaustible deposits of various clays ochres red yellow and brown and all kinds of sienna earth barites and what is deemed to be phosphate rock and if the alleged shale is genuine we can supply tilt United States in Portland cement Great slabs of iron ore are on the surface as large as barn doors chunks of lead have been picked up 95 per cent pure lead Alleged fluor spar exists in abundance Some of the veins of clay are forty teet thick and veins of white glass sand 100 per cent pure silica ro thick that it can be mined with the steam shovel if systematically worked Old salt wells mineral springs faults anticlines gas and oil abound There must have been a great upheaval here in the past Salt was manufactured hero in the first part of the nineteenth century Stoneware and pottery have been manufactured since 181520 and the clay can hardly be missed It is a plain business proposition that there is enough of this clay and sand alone in sight if properly developed to vastly increase the wealth of this county Madison countys capital should be in vested in developing home resources from which there can he no doubt as to the returns Two or three different clays have recently been assayed by experts and pronounced to be worth 20 per ton in the ground This is undoubtedly the enchanted garden where two feet be low a hill of watermelons the poor huckster finds another farm worth from 3000 to 5000 per acre From time to time in the past some enter prising citizens realizing the value of these vast deposits have attempted to develop this valuable territory but after a trial would give up in despair because they mot with no encouragement from the landowners The last company formed to develop this territory Had fair prospects of suc cess but owing to dissensions caused by the location of a railroad then being built from Richmond to Irvine it abandoned the project except C L Searcy who had so much faith in the future of this section that he erected a draintile and brick factory on the railroad and manufactured a superior draintile and brick He readily sold all that ho could make Two years since he began in conjunction with J E Donaldson to manufacture the Donaldson patent clay shingle or tileroofing which has proveda greater success They have covered a great many flno residences clurcbee etc in the cities and cannot begin to fill their orders now These shingles turn a beautiful red from one clay and white from another- It is only a matter of a short time when this tile roof will be universally used It is about as cheap as any roof and will last forever requiring no paint or repairs This industry alone would Justify the erection of a halfmillion dollar plant In this county and be highly profitable to the company The tile and shingle plant of Mr Searcys attracted the attention of our neighbor city of Lexington and some oi her moet enterprising business men some months since purchased the plant ond incorporated a large stock Company Alter the purchase they went quietly to work and practically own all the clay and oil land in the county by lease or purchase They have land that has a vein of block clay 10 to 40 it thick and very valuable They own a large deposit of china clay or kaolin that will make pottery or any kind of queeusware or works of art They have clay that will make sewsr pipe pressed brick vitrified brick in fact everything that can be made of clay Clay is more readily converted into value than any of natures prod ucts Tho thickness of the vein of white glass sand has never been found owing to the water rising but when properly drained this sand can be mined with ease and glass works will probably be located here Tho company owns the rightofway for a railroad from the present plant to the Kentucky river and lies the choice of two routes It is tho intention to build this road right away A large plant for manufactur jug vitrified and pressed brick will be erected this season and plans are now under way for a sewer pipe and pottery factory on the line of the proposed rail road In addition to the massive and val uable deposit of clays sands ochres umber sienna oxide of iron and what is deemed by experts to be ricn deposits of phosphate rock asphalt fluorspar barites cementrock lime lead and zinc all of which are so to speak in plain view the company owns anti controls as good oil prospects as can be found in the State Muddy creek from a point

as an oil territory Seven or eight well have ben drilled here and oil was struck every time Oil has been run thug out of the ground in twenty or more places for years It bubbles up in the streams and

House Thursday nightThlma Thelma which will be presented by Aiden Benedicts excellent company at the Now Opera House next week is a romantic drama taken from Marie Corellis story The first second and fourth acts take place in Norway tuird in London The scenic features are out of the ordinary and the play follows the book closely enough to satisfy the readers of the Corelll story After marrying Thelma Ernngton takes her to his London home where lady Wiusleigh proceeds to destroy her faith in her husband It takes a good deal of persistence on her ladyships part dud she has to stand the disap proving hisses of the audience but she finally succeeds In driving Thelma back to Norway by means of a letter Errlngton hail written to a burlesque actress Lady Wlusleighs efforts are entirely In behalf of her own affection for Errington and are altogether wast ed Errjngton is innocent of anything like unfaithfulness to Thelma but ap pearances are against him and the designing woman readily makes them appear to convict him Ernn ton follows Thelma to Nor way and the last act is the most spectacular of the four It shows the Al tail Fjord and the rainbow bridge in midwinter Tho snow

flour exclusively on your market for the present and in case you want it we will be cry glad to have you buy it through him or you can buy the same flour direct from us under the brand of Ballards Lucille If you desire to do so let us know Yours trully Ballard Ballard Co Well hero is another frost from Thurman on Wall street this city I wish to call your attention to the above letter sent to me from Messrs Ballard Ballard of Louisville Ky Now it seems that wo have been selling Mr Ballards flour to cheap so they turn over the exclusive sale to one man so as to give him a chance to sell it as high as he likes I dont think that as long as we pay Mr Ballard for his flour at his price that its any of his busi ness what we sell it for that is If we want to put the price down fn the reach of the people its our business Now we will see that our trade gets good flour at an extra low price and we will not give you any off brand of Mr Bal lards either Now a lot of you people have it in for Armour Swift and Mark Hanna so now you can initiate Ballard Ballard into that order on a small scale Now I dont say that Armour and Swift are not dnn rascals for I am riot a competent judge as I have not been shrewd enough to catch up with them neithet have I heard of them getting a lot of merchants to work up a trade on their goods and then take it away from all of them and turn it over to one man in order to let him control the market on it anti ask the trade any price for it they like Now you can see from Mr Ballards letter that he wants some one to pay extra for the name Obelisk as he says he will ship us the same flour under the name of Lucille Is this treating tire merchant right that they gave the control of Obelisk Well we have never been mar ned to Miss Obelisk and will have to pass Miss Lucille up Shin might not be straight goodsRespectfully mil tf JOE TiLvm- iND1ATHS DUNCAN Hairy Duncan son of Mr George Duncan of BrsssQeld died Friday tiitfht Deceased was an excellent
