Road Super visor To Be Elected The April term of the Fiscal Court me last Tuesday but owing tothe absence of some of the Magistrates ad journed until Wednesday when aquorum was present Most of the sesi sion was taken up in discussing1 tW turnpikss and bridges of the county and as to the best means of pbtaininy and supervising them A tax levy ofY 25c on every 100 of taxable property bathe county was made for tump3w 16JYfornoticed from this that the tax levy for Washington county is much less thaa last year For the year 1904 there were several levies while thus year l there are but two the levy for 1906 being 30c less than that of 1904 This speaks well for the county as at shoWS a growth financially and a prosperity that is soon felt by the taxpayer la addition to this the usual poll t uc levy of 1QO was made Mr Robert Noe was unanimously reelected County Treasurer at a salary of 100 per year in addition toi all the interest on the county funds in Ins hands Perhaps the most important bo ww transacted by the court was in regard to the supervision of turnpike and bridges It has heretofore 6e ii cus tomary for each Magistrate to act ae supervisor of the roads allotted to hot and in his magisterial district List November the Court of Appeals m the case of Boyd county va Arthur Judge Hobson delivering the apiniet decided that the Fiscal Court irale- right to enter an order appointing a Magistrate supervisor in his district and that suck Magistrate could net issue an order for his payment as serif supervisor This decision ca1Ied for a change which was made at this session Jtwas decided to appoint a County Supervisor roads and bridges whose duty it will be to inspect and keep hi good repair all roads and bridges in the county Such action is highly commendable for it concentrates all work and funds for that purpose in the hand of one man whol if efficient can afford to devote his entire time to that alone The court will meet inextra session on the 20th to

lost my religionI be a graceless wretch of a fellow were I to attempt to draw aparI allel between the negro and Mr Rocke feller further than to remark that the African in question the head of the Standard Oil Company is nothing if not religious Mr Rockefellers rise to his present position has not been along the prim rose path of dalliance He has had a hard road to travel and all sorts of- things have happened to him but he He has always been a church mem ber has always contributed to the Lords work and according to his own account he alas been amply rewarded The Lord has given him a thousand million dollars So he says And it may be true But this is a cold and heartless world and in all probability there are some who will look upon Mr Rockefellers alleged familiarity with the Lord as being a trifle immodest These heartless critics will be just mean enough to liken him to the Pharisee who was always thanking God that he was not as other men If it is a fact that God has given Mr

and next week sentence will be passed upon the murderess and she will Immediately be taken to the peni the young man who Mrs Brockwell said was an accomplice in the murder of the children and who she claimed suggested that she poison the children was released from the county jail this morning The grand jury finding no evidence upon which to indict him voted as a whole to liberate him Mrs Brockwell was today in dicted by the grand jury on three sepa rate counts charging her with willful murder It is now believed that there will be no other indictments in connec tion with the murder as the story of Mrs Brockwell that some one told her to poison the children is not credited The attorneys for the prosecution think that the murder of the children was deliberately planned by the mother for many days as Hazel Brockwell gave testimony to that effect to Common wealths Attorney Lovett and County Attorney Graves Friday afternoon Hazel said that her mother came to her on Thursday afternoon the day pre vious to the murder while Hazel was playing with the baby and asked her what she would do if the baby should die and if she would care much Hazel replied that she would never get over the shock if

many persons be NobodyIsdeath captain It Is served upon the strong as well as upon the weak But there are certain rules of living which will reduce ones liability to the disease says the Chicago Tribune From the bulletins of the health department and from other authoritative sources the following rules may be set down for observance Do not overheat the house Most people habitually dwell in apartments the temperature of which Is from 3 to 10 degrees too high Wear light underwear and heavy overcoats rather than heavy under wear and light overcoats Awld mingling with crowds when extremely tired or when food has not been taken for a longer interval than usual Avoid becoming chilled when into all rooms where you live and work plenty of tunllght and fresh air Keep warm when Indoors even If It is necessary to build fires in seasons when it is unusual to do so Avoid Indoor chill and dampness as much as possible For this reason be careful to remove the chill before moving into apartments freshly papered or calcl mined Be careful during variable weather Where there Is continual cold or con stant warmth the disease is little knownIf have an attack of the grip be unusually careful about your diet and about exposing yourself to the wrath- er Neglected colds develop Into pneumonia with startling rapidity Take plenty of exercise in the sun light and fresh air As good nursing is practically the only cure for pneu monla so good living Is practically the only preventive About Rheumatism toThere are few diseases that inflict more torture than rheumatism and there is probably no disease for which such a varied and useless lot of reme dies have been suggested To say that it can be cured is therefore a bold statement to make but Chamberlains Pain Balm which enjoys

DEBT At the regular meeting of the Fiscal Court held on Wednesday April 5 the county tax rate was fixed at 50 cents for all purposes One half of the amount was lev ied for turnpikes and bridgesand out of the remaining levy of 25 cents about scents was appropriated to the dirt roads From this it will be seen that the affairs of the county are being conducted at a very low cost to the tax pay ers In addition to this the coun ty is now out of debt a thing that couldnot be said for many years back It is also now on a cash basis all of its indebtedness being promptly met and the treasury is in better condition than ever before known in the countys history This indeedspeaks well for the present county ad jljinistration for when they took charge of the affairs of the coun ty a little more than seven years ago the indebtedness of the coun ty was about 60000 all interest bearing and it has certainly been a splendid administration of the county affairs to cancel this large indebtedness and make valuable internal improvements in the way of building bridges meeting all expenses including the extra expense incurred by smallpox all fwhich has been done without an increase of taxes Too much can not be said in praise of our Fiscal Court and county officials In fact Washington county officials were pai d the compliment by a Government Inspector as having the best sys tern found in any county in the State When our present county administration seven years ago promised the people that they would wipe out the county in debtedness within eight years some of our citizens were slow t

Naturalists Which They Will Remember Killing and Eating Members of Hostile Tribes The popular Idea of a cannibal seems to be about as far removed from real ty as any idea can be according to the report of A E Trait a distinguished English naturalist who has Just re turned from a two years sojourn among cannibal tribes in British New Guinea During his stay among the aborig ines of Papua New Guinea where Mr Pratt had gone in search of but terflies he found the savages were within sight of civilization although once In awhile they would kill cook and feast upon an enemy These Papuans are a very interesting race They are split up into tribes and each tribe is again divided into Til lages the largest of which occasionally consists of thirty houses or thirty fam ilies These villages are always sit uated on the ridges of mountains and the system of tribal rule is patriarchal but there is a headman to each village Who exercises a certain limited author ity over the families In the case of marriages however the chief power Js in the hands of the father of the fam ilyAlthough they are polygamists it Is seldom that a Papuan has more than two wives He Is permitted by custom to have as many as he can support but such Is the poverty among them that he is a magnate indeed who can have In his train more than two wives There is only a comparatively narrow strait separating New Guinea from Australia but the Papuans are not only higher in the human scale than the Australian blacks but they do not practice some of the revolting initiato ry rites which are common with the Australian aborigines In stature the Papuans are especially the mountain eers of fine physique In a swamp near Port Moresby these was found an amphibious tribe which displays a most wonderful exemplification of the law of adaptation being web footed It is the general disposition of these cannibals which causes most remark They are jovial and light hearted and when one has gained their confidence hospitable and friendly Mr Pratt had an extraordinary example of their con fidence upon one occasion After a stay of some months at Mount Kebea said Mr PrattuI was anxious to push farther on into the in- terIor but found myself Absolutely without beads which are the journey money of the Papuan tribes It would have delayed me too long to have wait ed for the return of my messengers who had been sent to the coast for a further supply so I accordingly hit upon the expedient of trying how far my credit with the natives would go I called the trIbemen women and children together and in a lengthy harangue I explained the situation to them Finally I asked them If they would lend me their beads which every one of them wore on his or her person in considerable profusion promising to pay them double the quantity Their beads are to the Papuans as precious as her pearls are to a grande dame but nevertheless every man woman and child Immediately consented to the loan This appreciation of the idea of credit one might almost say of bank Ingdenotes a considerable receptivity of mind and shows that the Papuans would not be Inaccessible to civiliza tionCannibalism Is not a universal prac tree among the Papuansthat Is to say all tribes donot deliberately practice Itbut all of them do enjoy a human least after a man has been pilled in a fight or for reason murdered While Mr Pratt was encamped at Mount Ke ben lie received one morning an un pleasant surprise It is the custom of the natives who live upon the moun tain ridges to shout the news to each other 6ii this occasion the natives of the village on an opposite hilltop shouted over to Mr Pratts party that they hind killed and eaten the brother of one of ills most trusted and faithful huntersImmediately there was great excite meat in his CUwp for the vendetta is practiced among these people A Ute for a life is their cry although persons in other parts of the world who echo the cry make claims to civilization The brother of the murdered man sum moned all the other villagers and then went to Mr Pratt with a demand for guns to shoot the enemy This demand was refused and the village was noisy and excited all day on account of the refusal There was reason to believe that a long war between the tribes would fol low when the third day an emissary from the tribe that had eaten one of Mr Pratts servants arrived on a mission of peace They seemed to fear that perhaps they had been wrong and wanted to make reparation lleparur pigtortheThis magnificent offer was accepted by the brother the victim and by the villagers So the pig was brought was killed roasted and eaten at a great feast and the incident was closed Another experience with the canal bals fell to the lot of Mr Pratts son a youth of eighteen He had sent to a distant part of the Island to get sup plies He had learned the language and knew the habits of the people but his route day through a hostile region On his way out he experienced no dif ficulty but on the return journey he 4k and his party were stopped by the hostile tribe with a demand for one of their boys to be killed and eaten This came about through a report which hostly they would not feel satisfied until they had feasted off a member of the tribe which had caused his death It was a crucial test for a youngster of eighteen to undergo but being wellI armed young Pratt parleyed with the man eaters and persuaded them to abandon their demand Early next morning he and his party slipped quietly away The MotuMotu who Inhabit Hoods bay are known as the piebald tribe owing to the peculiar marks upon their bodies They are one of the mysteries of New Guinea and their houses which ace built upon anopen wooden framework are Just as curious as they are They use a slanting pole as a stairway and some of the houses even have ladders for the dogs to use As wIthsome savage people the women are the hewers of wood and draw ers of water They are the burden bearers often carrying loads weighing Ing as much as fifty pounds They are however treated with great consideration by the men whose duty it Is to guard and protect the women and to do the hunting and fishing necessary to keep the family larder properly stocked The chief substance of the Papuans apart from game and of cOurse an occasional enemy are yams taros and bananas These are usually grown sOme little distance from the villages The ground Is tilled by the young women who are secured against attack by a guard of young warriors The costume of a bra as is usually con fined to a necklace doa a headdress and van armlet of plaited pandauus fiber The women are also fully and fashionably attired when their hair is dressed and a string of beads is hung around their necks A laundry would starve to death in New Guinea Hunting and fishing are followed by the Papuan with primitive Ingenuity The fishing Is Accomplished by means of a net which is made by spiders When a Papuan wants a net he first cuts a likely bamboo pole then bends It In a great 166p and sets It up in a forest Each day he visits it to see QOW Ills net is growing Soldier With Fan The use of fans In Japan Is not con fined to the fair sex The men are much

good condition he soon recovered his physical powers He was outwardly little the worse for the en counter with the devilfish The skin arooTui his mouth was sore His waist and legs were bruised One sweep of Ithe ax had cut clean through the bulg ing leather of his left boot without touching the flesh In a word he was practically uninjured He had tLe doglike habit of shaking himself at the close of a fray He did so now Rhea he stood up Iris showed clearer signs of the ordeal Her face was drawn and haggard the pupils of her eyes dilated She was gazing Into depths Illimitable unexplored Com passion awoke at sight of her Come said Jenks gently Let us Set back to the Island He quietly resumed predominance helping her over the rough pathway of the reef almost lifting her when the difficulties were great He did not ask her how It happened that she came so speedily to his assistance Enough that she had done It daring all for his sake She was weak and trembling Beaching the firm sand she could walk alone Did the thing grip you 1 she nervously inquired All over at once it felt like The beast attacked me with five arms She shBddered I dont know how you could fight it she said How strong how brave you must be This amused him The veriest cow ard will try to save his own life he an swered If you use such adjectives tome what words can T find to do jus to you who dared to come close 1to such a vile looking creature and rill it I must thank my stars that yon carried the revolver a Ah she said That reminds me You do not practice wbat you preach I found your pistol lying on the stone in the cave That Is one reason why I followed you It was quite true He laid the weapon aside when delving at the rock and forgot to replace it In his belt It was stupid of me he admitted but I am not sorry Why Because as It is I owe you my life You owe me nothing she snapped 1t Is very thoughtless of you to run such risks What will become of me if anything happens to you My paint of view Is purely selfish you see Quite so Purely selfish He smil ed sadly Selfish people of your type are somewhat rare Miss DeanesShe moved toward the cave but he cried Walt one minute I want to get a couple of crowbars What torT Z must go back there He jerked his head in the direction of the reef She uttered a little sob of dismay I will incur no danger this time he explained I found rifles there We must have them they may mean sal Nation When Iris was determined tabout anything her chin dimpled It puck ered delightfully now I will come with you she announced Very well I will wait for you The tide will serve for another hour He knew he had decided rightly She could not bear to be aloneyet Soon the crowbars were secured and they returned to the reef Scrambling now with difficulty over the rough and dan gerous track Iris was secretly amazed by the remembrance of the daring ac tivity she displayed during her earllerJ passage along the same precarious toadway Then she darted from rock to rock with the fearless ertainty of a chamois Her only stumble was caused she recollected by nn absurd effort tooI avoid wetting her dress She laughed nervously when they reached the place This time Jenks lifted her across the intervening channel They were standing on the landwar side of thesshallow water in which he fought the octopus Already the dark fluid emitted by his assailant to its final discomfiture was passing away owing to the slight move ment of the tide sow that you have brought me here with so much difficulty what fire you going to doT she said It will be madness for you to attempt to ford that passage again Where there gls one of those horrible things there are others isuppose That is one reason why I brought the crowbars he explained If you will sit down for a little while I will have everything properly fixed He delved with one of the bars until it lodged in a crevice of the coral Then a few powerful blows with the back of the ax wedged it firmly enough to bear any ordinary strain The rope ends reeved through the pulley on the tree were lying where they fell from the girls hand at the close of the I r r struggle Hedeftly knotted them to theIrigid bar and a few rapid turns of piece of wreckage passed between the two lines strung them into a tautness that could not be attained by anyf amount of pulling Iris watched the operation in silence The sailor always looked at his bestI when hard at work The half sullen wholly self contained expression leftJ his face which lit up with enthusiasm and concentrated intelligence That which he essayed he did with all his mightHe tolling with steady persistence felt not the inward spur which soughtSrelief In speech but Iris was to say something I suppose she commented with an air of much wisdom iyou are contriv ing an overhead railway for the safe transit of yourself and the goods YesIWhy are you so doubtful about it Because I personally intended to walk across The ropes will serve to convey the packages She rose Imperiously I absolutely agqinSuchshameful You are taking a grave risk for no very great gain that I can see and If anything happens to I sbaHt be left all alone in this awfulf placeaShe could think of no better argu ment Her only resource was a wo mans expedient a plea for protection against threatening Ills The sailor seemed to be puzzled how best to act Miss Deane he said there Is no such serious danger as you Imagine Last time the cuttle caught me napping He will not do so again Those rifles I must have If it will serve to reassure you I will go along tbelineI myself Without another word be commenc I ed operations There was plenty of rope and the plan he adopted was simplicity itself When each package was securely fastened he attached it to loop that passed over the line stretch ed from the tree to the crowbar To this loop he tied the lightest rope he could find and threw the other end toI Iris By pulling slightly the was able to land at her feet even the cumbrous rule chest for the traveling angle wasj so acute that the heavier the article the more readily it sought the lower level They tolled in silence until Jenks could lay hands on nothing more of value Then observing due care he quickly passed the channel For finJ instant the girl gazed affrightedly the sea until the sailor stood nt her side again The tide had turned In a few min utes the reef would be partly sub merged To carry the lease of rifles to the mainland was a manifestly impos ible feat so Jenks now did thaf which done earlier would have saved hlmj some labor He broke open the and found that the weapons were ape parently In excellent order He snapped the locks and squinted down the barrels of half a dozen to test them These he laid on one side Then he rapidly constructed a small raft from loose timbers binding them roughly with rope and to this argosy he fastened the box of ten the barrels of flour the broken saloon chair andI other small articles which might be of use He avoided any difficulty in launching the raft by building it cl seIto the waters edge When all was ready the rising tide floated it for him He secured it to his longest rope nndj gave It a vigorous push off into the laIgoon Then he slung four rifles across his should ers asked Iris to carry the remaining two in like beIgan to maneuver the manncrinc1 While you land wmJ prepare dinner announced the glrlJPlease be careful not to slip on the rocks he said I am concerned about the rifles If you fell you might dnmJ age them and the incoming tide will so hopelessly rust those I leave behind that they will be useless I will preserve them at any cost though with six in our possession there Is a margin for accidents However to reassure you I will go back quickly Before he cold protest she started off at a run jumping lightly from rock to rock Disregarding his shout she per severed until she stood safely on theI sands Then saucily waving a tare well she set off toward the care Had she seen the look of fierce despair that settled down upon JenltsI face as he turned to his task of guiding the raft ashore she might have wondered That it meant In any case she would certainly have behaved dif ferentlyBy time the sailor had safely landed his cargo Iris had cooked their midday meal She achieved a fresbI culinary triumph The eggs were tried I am seriously thinking of trying to boll a ham she stated gravely Have you any Idea how long it takes to cook oneproperly A quarter of an hour for each pound t VOTE t iic Admirable But we can measure poundsI both I will construct n balance of some kind Then with a ham slung to one end and n rifle and some cartridges to the other I will tell you the weight of the ham to an ounce To ascertain the time I have already determined to fashion a sundial I remember thq requisite divisions with reasonable accuracy and a little observation will enable us to correct any mistakes You are really very clever Mr Jenks said Iris with childlike candor Have you spent several years of your life in preparing for residence on a desert island Something of the sort I have led queer kind of existence full of useless purposes Fate has driven me in to a corner where my odds and ends of knowledge are actually valuable accidents make men millionaires Useless purposes she repeated I can hardly credit that One uses such phrase to describe lossy people alive foolish activity Your worst ene would not place you in such a categoryMy enemy made the phrase effective at any rate Miss Deane You mean that he ruined your ca reerWelleryes I suppose that d the position with fair accuracy Was he a very great scoundrel He was and is Jenks spoke with quiet bitterness The girls words had evoked a sudden flood of recollection For the moment did not notice how he had been trapped into speaking of himself nor did he see the quiet content on Iris face when she elicited the fOrmatiOn that his chief foe was a an A cer tain tremulous hesitancy in her manner when she next spoke might have warned him but his hungry soul caught only the warm sympathy of iier words which fell like rain on parched soilYou are tlredsbe said

correct shape You evi dently agree with him Absolutely You will like my father when you meet him He is the very best man alive I am sure You two are great friends then Great friends He Is the only friend possess in the world What Is that quite accurate Oh quite Of course Mr Jenks I can never forget how much I owe to you lUke ydu Immensely too although you are iso gruff to me at times But but

can be very nice when you like when you forget your past troubles And pray why do you call me a child Have I done so Not a moment ago How old are you Mr Jenks I am twenty twenty last December And I lie said will be twenty eight in August Good gracious she gasped I am very sorry but I really thought you were forty at least I look it no doubt Let me be equally candid and admit that you too show your age markedly She smiled nervously What a lot of trouble you must have had to4oto give you those little wrinkles In the corners of your mouth and eyes she said Wrinkles How terrible I dont know I think they rather suit you Besides it was stupid of me to imagine you were so oldl suppose exposure to the sun creates wrinkles and you must have lived much in the open air- Early rising find late

under all sorts of fanciful con ditions and In every kind of climate especially under circumstances when ordinary stores were not available With that object In view I read up every possible country In which my regiment might be engaged learned the local names of common articles of food and ascertained particularly what provision nature made to sustain life The study Interested me Once dur ing the Sudan campaign It was really useful and procured me promotion Tell me about It During some operations in the desert it was necessary for my troop to fol low up a small party of rebels mounted on camels which as you probably know can go without water much long cr than horses We were almost within striking distance when our horses completely gave out but I luckily no iced Indications which showed that there was water beneath a portion of the plain much below the general level Half an hours spade work proved that tbe1ursultagain Was there no fight He paused an appreciable time be fore replying Then he evidently made up his mind to perform some di agree able task The watching girl could see the change In his face the sharp transition from eager interest to angry resentmentYes went on at lost there was a tight It was a rather stiff affair because a troop of British cavalry which should have supported me had turned back owing to the want of water al ready mentioned But that did not save the officer in charge of the Twen tyfourth lancers from being severely reprimandedThe lancers cried IrisuLord Ventnors regiment Lord Ventnor was the officer in question Her face Crimsoned Then you know him she said I do Is he your enemy Yes And that is why you were so agitated that last day on the SI dar when poor Lady Tozer asked me if I were engaged to him could It affect you You did not even know my name then It affected me because the sudden mention of his name recalled my own disgrace I quitted the army six months ago Miss Deane under very painful circumstances A general court martial found me guilty of conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman I was not even given a chance to resign I was cashiered He pretended to speak with cool truculence He thought to compel her Into shrinking contempt Yet his face blanched somewhat and though he steadily kept the pipe between his teeth and smoked with studied uncon cern his lips twitcheda little And he dared not loqk at her for the girls wondering eyes were fixed upon him and the blush had disappeared as quickly as it came- I remember something of this she said slowly never once averting her gaze There was some gossip concerning it when I first came to Hong kong You are Captain Robert An struther I nnit And you publicly thrashed Lord Ventnor as the result of a quarrel about awoman- Your recollection is quite accurate Who was to blame The lady said that I wasM Was it true Robert Anstruther late captain of Bengal cavalry rose to his feet He preferred to take his punishment stand ing The court martial agreed with her Miss Deaue and I am a prejudiced witness he replied Who was thelndy The wife of ray colonel Mrs Costo bell Oh Long afterward he remembered the agony of that moment and winced even at the remembrance But he bad decided upon a fixed policy and he was not a man to flinch from conse quences Miss Deane must be taught to despise him elseGod help them both she might learn to love him as he now loved her So blundering toward his goal aH men always blunder where a womans heart Is concerned he blind ly persisted In allowing her to make such false deductions as she chose from his words Iris was the first to regain some measure of self control- I am glad you have been so candid Captain Anstruther she commenced but he broke ib abruptly Jenks if you please Miss Deane Robert Jenks Ceptalulj Mr Jenks Let me be equally explicit before we quit the subject I have met Mrs Costobell I do not like her I consider her a delceitful woman Your court might hay found a different verdict had ts members teen of her sex Astor Lord Ventnor he Is nothing to me perImlttemy dear old dad left the matter wholly to my decision nut I certainly never gave Lord Veutnor any encourage meat I believe now that Mrs Costo belt lied and that Lord Ventnor lied when they attributed any dishonorable actloi to you and I am glad that you bent ilm Iu the club I am quite sure he deserved it Not one word did thIs strange man voucl sufe In reply lie started cio lentlv seized the ax lying at his feet and vent straight among the trees keep his face turned from Iris so that 41JC might not see the tears in his eyes i As for the girl she began to scour her cooking utensils with much energy and soon commenced a song Considering that she was compelled to con stantly endure the company of a degraded officer who had been expelled from the service with ignominy she was absurdly contented Indeed with the happy inconsequence of youth she quickly threw all care to the winds and devoted her thoughts to planning a surprise for the next day by preparing some tea provided she could surrepti tiously open the chest TO BE CONTINUED NEXT WEEK Plans to Get Rich are often frustrated by sudden break down due to
