the meeting W A CLEMENTS H R THOMPSON IC A BRADY Board of Control of Washington Coun ty We have talked to quite a number of farmers during the past few days in regard to pushing the fight for the Bur ley Tobacco Growers COand everyone of them expressed their determina lion to continue the work tbward organization They say the fight must be carried on to next year and while all expressed themselves as being disappointed in the way matters terminated this season they believe that theBut1 ley Growers Co WIll meet with succes next year Every tobacco grower of Washington county is aware of the causes which brought about the collapse of theBur ley Co consequently they are ac quainted with the fact that a stubborn fight is ahead of them The powers which the burley tobacco growers must combat are backed up not alone by the millions of the tobacco trust but those of John Rockefeller and other magnates of Wall Street New York But the farmers are mightier than these whose gains or illgotten be cause theyj must become the customer of the farmer They must either buy his tobacco or close up shop It would be suicidal to give up the fight at this time and instead of lag ging or flickering the farmers of the burley district wIll no doubt get into the struggle again with Renewed life and determination V Death of Miss VanaSdsdale tr Miss Ardis V rnardalJ died atih home of her parents at

India 1893 and The Wooing of Malkatoon 1898 Two Famous In a recent interview Gen Wallace told of the origin of the nameBen Hur as follows In the first place it was a short name One of the most frequent criti cisms of my book The Fair God was because of the unpronounceable names it contained I was determined to avoid this in my new look and so searched for a short name that would answer It was no eaSy tusk In old works of fiction I looked in Jewish history I pored day and night but no name came to me Then I took up the bookof Genesis the earliest history of GEN WALLACE Departmen Halls

Joshua had selected him as an aid seemed the name I wanted It was short and of pleasant sound It was odd too and by adding Ben wh ch means a son of there I had it a ion of Hur and hence the title Ben

Chattanooga was burned to death in her home RADICAL ELEMENT In Ascendancy How Long I Will Hold The Position An Inter esting Question is Springfield Mass Republican The New York Sun undertakes to demonstrate that in the present rap roachment between the Roosevelt re publicans and Bryan democrats it is the president who has flopped to Bryan rather than Bryan who has flopped over to the president This is a contention which appears to be well established Nevertheless the truth is that there has been rio particular amount of flopping on either side There has long existed in the republican party a strong radical element at heart in sympathy with the Bryan reorganization of the democracy but held to i old party allegiance by the ties o habit and prejudice strengthened mightily by the continued presence of a solid South Naturally this element t has been secretly held in line and un der the domination of the conservative e and corporate powers within the repub lican party But locally it has now and then asserted itself sporadically and temporarily as under the leader ship of Pinree in Michigan LaFolli stte in Wisconsin and Cummins in low a affording occasional and striking jvi dence of the existence of strong vol canic forces within the mighty m un tain of conservative vested republi an ismThese uprisings sof a discontented and radical republican element lave beep too infrequent and spasmodi to be viewed with serious alarm by the dominant capitalistic influences in the Party and as late as the reelectio i 0 f President McKinley in 1900 there was Qfventsworthy measure would obtain cpi trpl of the party in its national cap city than that syndicated capital would for get its po and cunning and be delivered up without struggle to its enemies It was through accident solely that the presidency and the republican leadership fell so much under the radical influences Mr Roosevelt represents While never regarded as dangerous after the manner of Bryin he was considered a troublesome and disturb ing factor to the conservative leader ship and waS given the vicepresidency putigaining the presidency by accident he had to be accepted as a candidate for the full tenrtQn penalty of producing a great party ruction in the face of a presidential contest And thats how the radical republican element comes to be at the moment in the ascendancy of the party and the control of the government How long it will be able to hold its position is a question full of national interest and replete with possibilities in relation to party realignments in the United States If Mr Roosevelt should prove a thoroughgoing reformer of the radical type throughout his full term it is impossible that the liberal masses within the republican party will have been at last cut away from the conservative control and left free either permanently to assume the party mas tery with the support of Bryan demo crats or more likely to join the in reorganized democracy which will appeal to the industrial classes of the North and let the solid South shift for itself But all depends on the depth and breadth of Mr Roosevelts radical ism and that remains to be determined Exploding

industrious in the prosecution of private business but quite another thing to give the same amount of labor to the duties of an official position The Court of Appeals was at that time between two and three years behind the Docket and there was a well found ed complaint that such a t delay of justice amounted to a denial of it Since that time the Court of Appeals has been disposing of its business

kill her If he Is harmed shouted one of the soldiers Something in the words and manner of Harvey impelled Orskoff to lower his sword He turned to the soldiers who were guarding the four robbers and said Take them on board the gunboat robbQdtare They must be taken at once to Tiflis Convey all the treasure on board Turning again to Harvey his face re IpaidYourescue her I am willing to parley with you I had determined to kill you on sight Come with me Harvey followed his captor to the entrance of the cave Here be found a guard of additional soldiers with Ian terns In the distance a brilliant searchlight sent its gleam upon the is- landt lighting it as by day In the great light from the gunboat Harvey could see that the old hayboat bad etuck in the mud near the island At a little distance was a sailing vessel evidently the property of Palpak and his robber brothers On the shore were two boats landed the This scans The five Jostled rude wWchladly while boats and at a command were soon on the way to gunboat They were received on board by a young of ficer who saluted Orskoff h 1 congratulate you my captain I am told by the men that you not only captured the American wh6stole the daughter of Biartelkis but that you also i had the good fortune to seize the four robbers who attacked the paymaster and robbed him at Mogda Are you sure these are the men T I could not be mistaken The leader Is Palpak chief of the tribe of Zari necks nominally under the rule of the ameer but hating him t Guard them well then Shall we get under way at once my captain No lieutenant As you know

hands and lIar vey was dragged away The gunboat remained and as soon as It was sufficiently light In the morn Ing Orskoff took asquad and returned to the island He examined every foot of the place and returnedto the gun yt he com manded Harvey was hustled to thfl deckLieutenant Nevisky attend said Orskoff Now stealer of women will give you one more chance to ten the troth If you do not your thumb will be torn oUt Your life depends upon your answers Tell where yo have hidden Koura Your punishment will be worse than death If you do not Koura was to have been my wife You said something like that before but that she was to be your wife Is news to me For my pant I am willing to tell you where she is 1 have searched the Island I am convinced that Ivoura Is not there I could have fold you that and saved you trouble aqd time Koura Is get ting farther away every minute You will never find her You fiend 1 will have your life howled the captain as he sprang to his feet KJyou do seem inclined that way but fdA l before you take It reflect Just show a little common senseJf you have any If you kill me how do you expect to find Ivoura But you say you do not know where she is I said nobbing of the kind I said I did know she was But I did not take her there Take off these con founded Irons treat me like a man and I will tell you what I know Remove said the cap tain The lieutenant unlocked them Come with me alone said Harvey Surprlsed Orskoff beckoned to Ne risky who turned and walked away Bewaref said Orskoff how you trifle with me I am not trifling with you I am the only man who can help you find your Koura j and it happens that I have as ardent a reason to want to find her as you her I donteven know her but one 1 love is with Iher1 Then you did take her away No I did not I know nothing about Kourarthat is except where she is this moment But before I tell you must first tell me how you traced me to the Island Orskoff made a gesture of impa tience Koura had been living with her un cle in Tiflis I saw her every due and if I was not on duty I spent the evening at the house One night I was on duty and did not go I stopped to see her the next morning and her un cle who was beside himself with ter ror told me she had gone out the night before and had not returned I knew she had bee2 stolen and as that was the morning you escaped from prison I knew you had taken her I searched the river apd learned that Charkris hayboat haft gone down toward the Caspian It was said that a man and woman the woman disguised as a man had gope with Charka I reached the coast ais soon as possible but I could not overtake The launch iad gone bqfore I mnde the discovery or all this jvould not have happened On the gunboat I cruised everywhere using the searchlight at night Last night we discovered the hayboat and at once west to the Island JIarIvey and you had used any reason ing powers you would have known that it couki not have been Koura who was with me You say you were told that the wo nan with me was disguised as a man Xow how could 1 get Bourn in such n disguise When a woman disguises hgrself it Is for a purpose Koura was token she did not go of her own accord as did jAlnm You spe k of Alma Jurnleff niece t of the colon el Yes Sh4 assisted me to escape and as our attempt was discovered before she could return to her apartments it was necessary for her to fly with me On the Caspian the hcyboat met with disaster and Alma and I were left ou It alone We drifted all night shiver lug with cold and hunger In the morn lug we found ourselves under the bows of a long black boat belonging to the umber o f Bokha ra I know the boat It is used to carry goods to Persia Not this time It is being used to carry Almq Jurnleff and Koura Blur telkis to BQkharu They permitted

that you are not in lopC not as I am Sit down said Harvey They took chars on deck- Getting excited is not going to help us any said Harvey pulling at his cigar am as eager as you to rescue the girls The difference Is that you without any plans want to rush off and probably involve us In greater trouble while 1 wish to plan out a line of action Now tliat oat went somewhere on the Bokharau coast where we do not know The thing is to get what information we can out pf the robbers They would lie to us I ddnt think the chief Palpate would lie Except for my presence j Stop he commanded suddenly the other robbers would have killed him and he must feel some graft tude But these fellows are shrewd We could do nothing with them unless we granted them their freedom And that of course ydu would not do No I am an officer of the cznrIWhatdo you intend tovdo with me It is my duty to return to Tiflis with you and give you over to the authorities Just so Younre one of these mar chine made

would quicklymoment to the spot where I considered it most likely I would fled them connectionNo tell me what Is your duty in the matter of these robbers I have already stated that I must take them to Tiflis and charge them with robbery Several times the offi eelS fn charge of the money to pay th soldiers have been robbed We sus pected that it was done by some of the mountain robbers and mistrusted the Bokharans But ive could never catch any Thats because you are a machine soldier The third section of your po lice 1fhatWithout thinking Pardon me you Insist It Is your duty to go at once to Tillis

that it Is your duty to take and the robbers to Tiflis do fio and forever hid farewell to ktiiini Blartelkls But what can I do The girls are by this tine perhaps on Bokharau soil It is against the orders of the czar for a Russian soldier to step foot In that country TitUs Is several days Journey from here Bokhara but a short distance Somewhere In the clutches of the Bo kharans are the girls you

Harvey turned and resumed his walk He tools several turns and closely watched OrskofT The Russian was deeply thinking his brow knitted in perplexity Stop he commanded suddenly as Ilarvoy reached him agnlnYou sell windmills To no one save those who employ you dov you owe allegiance You come and go as you see fit You are shrewd and brave and take your wares to all countries and run risks of death

me For one the girls are on Bokharan soil Iam helpless Helples I canto stir regiments to cross the border The order must come from St Petersburg By the time we get that order the girls will be married

What a problem for a man to solve He abruptly left Harvey who sat down preferring to let Orskoff workout the problem himself Orskoff paced gravely up and down never once looking at Harvey Have you a plan he asked sad denly stopping before Harvey Give me your answer to the pro b lem you have set out to solve and I will give you the plan I have thought of rAgain that monotonous pacing up and down the deck it seemed to Irons as though the Russian was growing looking each moment Again the eyes and working lips It came to an end at last With a sigh as if exhausted Orskoff dropped into the chair by the side of Irons Well I have fought the fight he said wearily And won asked Harvey No God knows It is no victory I have Iqstily patriotism goes down before my love I am a Russian I know the Russian cruelties to those who defy the czar I know the pitiless Qestroysthe thisknowittg toebecome a traitor A traitor What nonsense Yes a traitor to the czar You and I will soon Ue under the same

harness bearing the- Re Cross badge and fitted with pockets on each side containing triangular bandages and round the neck hung a keg of spirits The members of the ambulance corps present proceeded to carry out a series of displays in which the dogs found men supposed to be wounded ly ing on the heath invisible to the spec tators and having found them gave tongue The ambulance then picked up the wounded man and completed the first aid which by the help he had been able to give hImself Dogs trained for this purpose are in use in the German service many being now in Herrerolalid west Africa

shipyard has the distinc tion of having been built of material originally purchased for a manofwar Her frame is of the best live oak and was bought by the United States in 1SG2 for a warship but before the yes sel was built the war ended and iron ships made their appearance The tim ber was jsunk in the dock at the Ports mouth X H navy yard and there it remained until about two years ago when
