WETS WON FIGHT In Nelson County Last Satur day T Drys Made a Great Ef fort But Odd Were Against Them they Refuse to Surrender And Prepare For a Vi tpripusI Finish Hence ThreeX rfIf Wet vote irt county 1846 Dry 1581 Wet majority t 265 The Drys lost in Nelson county last Saturday but they put up the gamest fight ever waged by the local option forces in this or any other State Considering the odds against them the temperance people won a victory 4 Did you ever consider that Nelson county is the leading whisky county of Kentuckythat has two dozen or more large distilleries and that these distilleries employ several hundred hands and that the owners of these distilleries are very rich wen who didnt mind spending a few dollars to save the day in Nelson Think about the influence that these distillers have over people In the communities where they reside think about the pressure that each of the empliyes of the distillers can bring to bear upon some neighbor or friend to vote for whisky in order to save to me my job Of courseI these hands were told If voted out of Nelson county the distill eries will close down and you will lose your job Dont you see what a powerful lev erage the whisky men had over in NelJ son Thats the way they educated the voter prior to the election the dad dyless tracts from Wall Street NewJ York and the Daddyless Herald of thej county of Nelson to the contrary notwithstanding But on election day we are told that Wall Street stuff with a jingletingle to it was found to be quite an effective argumentation And what a time the coons did have HushIts hard to see what the temper ance people were up against in Nelson countyEverything considered they won a g great victory They are prepared for a threeyearsonslaught and they have telephoned The Sun that the fight is still on that they will not surrender but will drill their forces for the battle three years hence And by the eternal you will win anlnrTheerror wounded writhes in pain dies among its worshippers The Sun wants to be with you again in the next fightwants to be with you heart and soul teeth and toenails agressively determinedly and tothe finish You will win Of course you will That majority of 265 wet snot a bad indication It shows that Kin Booze is weak in his stronghold and i 1tottering A change of seven votes to the precinct would have won for you last Saturday Three more years will ring about a change of 3 times 7 otes to the precinct Keep your powder dry Hbistthe flag ltd rally round itl Look to your guns t Watch your fortifications Keep the camp fires burning and write DETERMINATION in blazes of Truth upon every bill in old Nelson RIGHT WILL PREVAIL Attorney Morgan Yewell has won a warm place in the hearts of the tem perance people of his county He fought a great fight He never became weary and he never stacked arms Be beg ged no quarter he gave none His face was ever to the emeny and he led his host unflinchingly He never flickered though the odds were all against him and praise God he is still in the fight with never a thought of surrender The Revs Anderson of the Baptist and Presbyterian churches were at all times in the thickest of the fray and they trained the artillery like old war hosses They were among the fist to get in the firing line and they are still there for the skirmish on last Saturday is but the beginning of a great battle And Geo Talbott wontbe downed strikesIfrom the shoulder The man who engages him in joint discussion soon gets his daddYlesstractideas blasted and goes away believing as the gentleman from Crescent Rill recently said We have a bad case on its face a case which we must apologize for There were many loyal workers in Nelson county and to all of them The Sun desires to extend congratuations s Dr Carver did effective work He presented strong arguments in a clear and logical manner and they tried to answer him at Balltown with rotten eggs In justice to the Balltown contingency of the whisky aggregation permit us to say that they advanced thetrongest whisky argument theIHOME FOLKS i Mr Bryan Starts On His Way to Lincoln Rousing Nebraska- Wekome Awaiting Him New York Sept 2Escorted by the Nebraska Home Folks more than a hundred strong William J Bryan start edun the home stretch of his progress round the world ina special train of fiVe cars which left Jersey City over the Lehigh

Lincoln Nb Wednesday when a rousing reception is promised by Mayor Brown who heads the flele gation of Nebraskans On the way over the river in the ferryboat Mr Bryan smilingly said in an interview Speaking from a personal stand point the receptions accorded tome Were very gratifying Speaking from a political standpoint I think that they showed a marked change in public sen timent along the lines of economic questions especially those questions relating to the trustissue The one un pleasant feature about the receptions is that I have been so busy speaking and going from place to placerthat have nbt had time to shake hands withall those who had come great distances The reception which my neighbors at home are preparing will be a grati fying one but it can hardly be more

He clearly set forth facts and figures through the interesting columns of his worthy paper that won in ia sense our liberty At the crisis of the contest he fired the bomb that obliterated the whisky traffic forever from our midst and dUlinJhe remaining hours of the stood firm and resolute against all oppressors When those infamous Daddyless Tracts flooded our county in hopeless failure to deceive our legal voters he readily proved their inconsistency aided by the sweet anticipation of the past r but not forgottenfatal day to Legalize Liquor Traffic From week to week he urged the importance of this great local option cause upon our citizens anti added greatly to the estimate of our plurality in the fight Well it was just a bit top onesided to call it a fight nevertheless his assistance was a boon to our county and I am glad to know that his efforts yielded golden results In return for this do you as friends not fee it duty tp support this bright public ition and fear less Editor who labored from dawn 11 setting sun in behalf cf every man woman and child in our county and h it live and shine as The Sun of our county should through ages to come This he deserves and will doubtless

It is a shame that such a friend and servant to mankind as the mule should be given thereputa tion it has in literature or rather in newspapers and artoons The mule doubtless does not know of its villificai tion and if it did would not care but the friends of the mule do care who and shown than in raising and using mules for the mule pays for every bit of care and appreciation the Missourian- or anybody else bestows Superficially the mule has the reputa tion of being vicious stubborn and a kicker He deserves none of these characterizations and the average Mis sourian knows it mighty yell The mule is not naturally vicious and it takes the biggest kind of a fool of a man to spoil the temper of an animal The fictional stubbornness of the mule arises from the fact that when it ap pears stubborn it usually has a good sensible rpason to be and the real mulishness is in the man The mule knows better than he does why this that should be nd is resolute What ever kicking propensity the mule has is derived from tl e horse side of his pedi gree and that Is minimized by the pa tience complacency and docility hj gets from the other side of his pedigree The mule is not so easily startled as jthe horse never acts the plumb crazy fool and hurts himself like the scared horse but as his heels are his natural defense he will use them in the pinch of necessity or apprehension It is not a wise thing to come upon an animal of the horse kind full kin or half breed and touch it without first lilting it be known you are around no matter how gentle the animal may be The horse andthe mule are both star tied by sudden contact for which they cannot for the moment account and their nature is to kick Really the kickinest animal on the farm is that poetadmired criter the meek and loWly cow Shcan kick higher in more different directions with less cause for doing so than any mule or horse A man knows the di rection a horse or mule will kick It is straight out behind lIe knows too the foreboding signs But that man has never yet been born who can figure the whenness or the why ness or the whereness of a cows kick J There is no less of dignity in the ad mission of a kick from a horse or mule but no man likes to admit that he has been kicked by cow and hurt Hence the cow kicks do not get into the statistics or the newspapers and the others do As to the kicking propensities of the mule it is noticeable in Missouri where they know howto raise them that every mule has a shaved tail Whenever the mules tail needs shaving which is about every sixty days Missourian letting the mule know he is there stands right behind his mules ip that tail in one hand and does with a pair of shears with the other No man has ever been kicked shaving mules tail The mule knows he is there and what he is doing The mule works harder than a horse stands it better and eats less As an all around animal for farm work he is in a class by him a Every nerve is a live wire connecting some part of the

codCIRCUIT CLERK ROBERT JNQB = I MR BRYAN ON WBLIC OWNERSHIP JHon W J Bryan Jin his Madison iSquareGarden speech on last Thursday night said concerning the government t ownership of railroads I have already reached the conclu son that railroads partake so much of the nature of a mpripply that they must ultimately become public property and be managed by Public officials in the in t rest of the whole community in ac cordance with the welldefined theory that publicownership ib necessary where competition is impossible I do not know that the country is ready for this J 1 do not know that majority of my oWn party favor it but I believe that an increasing number of the members of all parties see in public ownership the sure remedy for discrimination between persons and politics and forth extortionate rates for the carrying ofa freight and passengerS Believing however that the operation of all the railroaqs by the Federal Government would result in a central ization which would all but obliterate State lines I prefer to see only t trunk lines operated the Federal Government and the local lines by the several State Governntents Some have opposed this dual owner ship as impracticable but investigation in Europe has convir ced me that it- t is entirely practicable j Nearly all the raijroads of Germany are owned by the several States the Empire not even owning the trunk line snd yet the in terstate traffic is in nowise obstructed In traveling from Constantinople to Vienna one passes through Turkey Bulgaria Servia Hungary and a part of Austria without a change of cars and yet each country owns and opera tea its own roads and different langu ages are spoken on the divisions of the line Sweden and Norway each owns its railroads but they have no trouble about interstate traffic although their political relations are somewhat strain operations of the local lines by the several State Governments is not only feasible but it suits itself to the conditions existing in the various States In those States where the people are ripe for a change the local lines can be purchased or new lines be built at once while private ownership can continue1 in those States in which the people still prefer private ownership Some States have been more careful than others to prevent 4theand in the ac quiring of roads each State can act ac y rding to the situatipri it has to meet As to the right of the Governments federal and State to own and operate railroads there can be no doubt If- we can deepen the water in the lakes and build connecting canals in order to cheapen railroad transportation dun half of the year we Can build a rail road to cheapen rates the whole year if we can spend several hundred mil ligjis on the Panama canal to lower transcontinental rateswe can build a railroad from New York to San Fran v else 9 to ilpwer both t I and local rates The United States mail is increasing so rapidly that we shall soon be able to pay the interest on the cost of trunk lines out of the money which we now pay toy railroads for carrying through mails If any of you uestion the propriety of toiremind you that the President coul not have secured the passage of the tiratetear of the more radical remedy o Government ownership and nothing will so restrain the railroad magnates from attempting to capture the Inter state Commerce Commission as the same fear The highhanded manner in whifch they have violated law and igca nored authority together with the cor ruption discovered in high places has done more to create sentiment in favor of public ownership than all toe speech es and arguments of the opponents o private ownership I have referred to the railroad ques tion as a part of the trust question because they are so interwovent it i difficult to consider one without the other Now that the local option election in Washington and Nelson counties are things of the pastand the tales have been toldlet us knuckledown to other affairslet us persue

they found escape by way of the stairs completely cut off Mr Cox was a printer and a few years ago held a position on the News Leader at this place He is wellre membered by many people here The CourierJournal gives the following report of the disaster Upon reaching the fourth floor of the building the three men could see through the smobeahd flame the figure of a man This proved to be Harvey White roommate ot the man who was burned gropiIicuers When he finally reached themIhe partially lost consciousness that condition was carried down the ladder to safely He was taken to the boardinghouse at 414 West Chestnut street where he was soon revived When he gained complete control of his senses White implored those about him to go to the rescue of his roommate Harry Cox My God men he was burning to death when I left he cried It was Thomas Callahan of the No 5 Hook and Ladder Company who discovered the body of the dead man in the room on the fourth floor of the building Spurred on by the agonized appeal of White who had been rescued he scaled a ladder and stepped through a window into the burning room S dense was the smoke that his lantern shed but little light about him He took a step forward and his foot came in contact with the head of the dead man who was lying on the floor his head near a window which he had at tempted to reach when overcome b the flames and smoke Cox and I had gone to lied about 1 oclock said White and Wife sleep ing quietly when I was awakened by Cox tugging at my nightshirt My God he said the house is on fire V ran into the hall which was filled with smoke and reached the air shaft as some men came up ithe stairs The told us to follow them but the smoke was so thick we IIThen one of the men down the shaft For Gods sake send up a

SPRINGFIELD SUN WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 51906 t r THE IDEAL- DOROTHY4 By GEORGE HORTON I L Author of Le Another Helea I Copyright by Joseph B Bowles He was down in the Washington City Directory as A Quintner clerk War Department and that brief bi- Ography gave a very correct estimate of his relative Importance In the community He was one of several thou sands In similar positions who left their houses at a certain hour in the morning performed various duties and returned at a fixed hour at night He was a bachelor was A Quintner 45 years of age retiring and timid with brown hair slightly slivered at the temples a florid complexion and shaggy yebrows He was a big man he dressed neatly his mariners were ndgrave polite and he walked with the aid of a corkscrew Manzanita cane A Quintner had never married be cause of an ideal In earlyyouth he had supposedly found the incarnation of that ideal a tall fair woman with a form as grace fut as the stem of aMlly a low broad forehead arching eyebrows an oval iface serious truthful tender eyes Ex quisite refinement seemed to emanate from her like a perfume while gentle ness and angelic goodness looked from her level fearless glance and spoke in every tone of her low soft voice This woman lied to him played with his heart aSa cat with a mouse and married a disgusting old millionaire whose very touch was contamination Her husband died after a few years and the widow made it very p1aln to A iQuinter that he might share the dead mans millions with her but he pre ferred to remala simply auclk in the war department But he did not lost faith in his ideal as we shall see One morning as he was proceeding to his desk in the department he looked suddenly into the face and eyes of a woman who so reminded him of this youthful love that he nearly dropped his corkscrew cane in his agitation He1 turned and gazed after her Yes there was the same graceful form reminding him of the stem of a lily swaying in a gentle breeze the same massive coil of amber hair Can it be he mused But no youngSwoman the same age that she was ithan f He called this woman too Dorothy eventhough he did not know her name and had no desire to learn it tit seemed improbable to him that two Persons so closely resembling each other and his idealthis Dorothy and a the DorothY of long agoshould both be ignoble This opinion was confirmed the next morning when he observed her from his window bringing several bundles from the corner grocery evidently pro vision for the family breakfast The early air had touched her cheek with freshness and there was a joyous light in her eyes which he concluded were greyAfter a week A Quintner began to feel that he had something to come ihome to nights He was no longer en vious of his two associates one a fat the other a thin bid man both bald who shared his office As the hands of the clock crept around the dial towards halfpast four he also glanced Jmpatlently at them Theythe two old men were hungry for a sight of their wives and babies while he per Naps might get a glimpse of Her Fail lug that he should at least experience the sweet influence of her proximity for she was sure to be in during the he enjoyed a bowing acquaint ance with the servant next doora wo man of about 40 with one colorless eye and a Socratic nose He stopped and talked several tinies with Annie holding his hat politely In his hand out of deference for her whose servant Annie was and as he talked his voice grew tender and he exhibited hesitation and embarrass ment When he was actually in con versation with Annie his purpose seemed preposterous for he realized that he had Stopped the woman simply because she was her servant He saw nothing incongruous in so much physical ugliness serving so much beauty It seemed to him rather the fate of women of Annies appeaf ance to perform menial tasks for one upon whose face and figure God had set the seal of Queen There can be nosudh thing as sen timent in the heart of a poor creature like this servant he reflected In the ideal woman beauty of soul refined and delicate feelings are associated with physical beauty The latter Is the visible and tangible expression of the former I can talk with Annie without her even suspecting my sentiments for her mistress Soon suitors or In more conventional language men friends began to appear next door Theres a dozen of em said Annie one day and she wouldnlt have any one of em not If he was the last man on earth Shell fern em all away some day when her own true love comes a ridin up to the door Cheap literature reflected A Quintner as he walked off puts many silly ideas into the heads of the unen lightenedBut remark brought a new element Into his dreams and caused them to include the time when Sne should suddenly discover that She had lost interest in the others and should spend all of her evenings with him He Shranlr from actually making her cijbaliitance for two reasons First uppose she should fall short of ills conception of her This thought was such treason that he tried to persuade himself that he did not entertain It and when It became too insistent he apologized saying Forgive me dear I cannot forget the sins pf that other woman Secondly his long years as A Quint ner clerk had deprived him pf the powers of initiative About this time something epochal happened One evening at an early hour Mr Quintner heard a tapping upon the wall which separated his resi dence from the dwelling next door He was thinking so intensely of her at the moment that the sound coming from that quarter impressed him as a sig nal Scarce realizing what he was doing he sprang to the wall and trembling like an aspen leaf he tapped three times softly with his knuckles What was his joy to receive a ire sponse almost Inaudible Indeed but unmistakably a response On his way to the office toe next day he met her he passed her In the street he fairly brushed her dress with his sleeVe He was about toUIft his hat in joyful recognitionand gaze smil restralnrdbyclear that it caused him to pass by without looking up This Is our secret he mused un confessed even to ourselves and to take advantage of It or to seem con scious of It would be as rude as to speak of a kiss It Tapping upon the wall now became the chief feature of A Quintners dally life something to be looked forward to a sacred tryst to bring him home nights and to keep him there Every evening at ten oclock he tapped Every evening he heard a faint response In his Imaginary association with her he planned not only evenings of reading from inspired books but hours of con verse and of more eloquent silence One morning she went away and the fact that she took with her a suitcase and wore a traveling dress suggested to his unpracticed mind a long stay months perhaps The second evening after her departure he began a love letter to herIMy SweetheartFor such you are and you cannot help yourself for whatever your sentiments may be towards me you cannot prevent my lov ing ypu I cannot believe you are gone The flowers are here yet the sun the stars and the birds Everything reminds me of you Sometimes I feel that my love for you Is sheer audacity and then I reflect that it is not only inevitable but a duty it is mere worship the tribute that the soul of man HE FAIRLY BRUSHED HER DRESS WITH HIS SLEEVE pays to the good the true and the beautiful He laid the letter aside and never finished it for she cam back the next day having been no farther away than after her return the respon sive rapplngs ceased and A Quintner fearful of betraying her did not persist He merely waited patiently But on his way to the office one morning he met the serv nt with the Socratic features Her eyes were red with much weeping Whats the matter Annie he asked Is DorIs your mistress sick Dont you know sir sdd the girl she has been very sick or a week The poor thing died this morning at three oclock My God gasped A Quinter blanching and leaning against the fence No Yes sir Annie laid her largered hand tenderly upon his arm and look ed up to him bravely God bless you Annsobbed A Quintner turning away He was never to knowth it the tap ping on the wall begu afi a playful prank by Dorothy aid indulged In but once or twice by herxhadl beentong continued by the servant wi h the unsentimental exterior a he had only discontinued It the wee before when her mistress had been aken sick and had demanded her undh ided attention- A Quintner moved ouL of the neigh borhood the next day carrying with him the sad but radiant memory of an ideal woman combining physical charms with beauty of soul and tender ness of sentiment A girl with Socratic features stood blubbering as she watched the dray carrying his effects and repeating a verse which she

failed to put in an appearance so that even Aaron was troubled by the long absence and found Increas ing difficulty in answering the quer lea of the people and quieting their murmurings This condition of affairs in the camp of Israel encouraged certain of the more turbulent spirits to speak openly against Moses and to call into question noJL only his devotion to Is rael but his honesty of purpose in leading them thither as well as his right to remain away for so long a timeSaid we not they exclaimed with scornful lips that this man would yet play us false Have we not trust ed too much into his hands It is well that he does not come back More days of waiting passeddays- of doubt and growing discontent which developed an unsettled feeling that only needs the spark of encouragement to call forth the bursting flame of rebellion Such a condition waits only on the lead of some daring spirit and It was not long before such leader appeared in the person of one Seled who for long time had secretly cherished feel Ings of jealousy against Moses which has been deepened and intensified since coming to Mount Sinai owing to the religious system which was de veloping under the direction of Moses This attitude was due to the fact that Seled had been reared by an Egyptian who had given him mary advantages educating him under the tutelage of the priesthood from whom ho had acquired much knowledge of the Egyptian gods and the Egyptian form of worship This early training and these associations had exerted a throng Influence upon him and while he remained true to his Hebrew line age and Hebrew God and found his place with the Hebrew people when they left Egypt under the lead of Moses he still felt the fascination of Egyptian forms of worship and had since coming to Mount Sinai felt strong Inclination growing within him to make the worship of their God asI pompous and festive as that of during Moses absence this de sire had been Intensified and it was Seled who Was zealous in spreading the feeling of discontent among the people and who when the time seemed ripe was ready to lead them into open revolt Why shduld we wait longer Se led exclaimed to a group of followers one day Is It notJwell that we should have gods before us Dare we delay longer our worship and service Our eo nay be ugry wits us if we remember not him But what can we do spoke wp one Aaron urges delay until Moses shall return declaring that he will not fall to come back Return burst out Seled again scornfully Return Why he has forgotten us all long ago It would not surprise me Jt he had slipped off to his old home In Midlan where it Is said his wife and children are still living To be sure they a exclaimed Thou art keen Seled We had not thought of that And with Moses gone let us have EgyptlansBut how about Aaron We can not hope to succeed while he is about replied another apprehen sively Never fear spoke up Seled confi dently if we cat rouse the people to action he will not dare to refuse us our request This declaration seemed to strike a popular chord in the hearts of his followers and soon they were plan ping how they might so arouse the people as to bring about a popular up rising against Moses What is our religion without gods in our midst Seled admonished as he dismissed his followers It was well when we met together and God talked with Moses on the mountain but now we would go forward and would have gods to go before us So speak to the people as you go forth and let us come together at the place where Moses was wont to gather us and there we will demand of Aaron that he make us gods Imbued with the new purpose each man sped upon his errand and ere the night had spent Itself these sparks of rebellion had kindled their fires which spread through the entire camp so that at the time appointed on the morrow almost the entire congregation of Israel was gathered at the place agreed upon It was plain to see that Aaron as he gazed into the angry determined faces before him realized that he could no longer restrain the people and he dared not take a stand against them Perhaps If he temporized with them if he yielded in part to them he could still retain his control over them and in this compromising po sition Aaron has had innumerable followers among those who prized more highly the following of men than the commendation of God Seled was the spokesman and as he motioned to the people before him to be silent he said to Aaron Up make us gods which shall go before us rA great hush fell upon the vast coq gregatlon Aaron stood Irresolutely before them They realized that he was afraid and with one mighty out burst of passion they echoed the words which Seled had spoken Up make us gods which shall gtf before us But Moses Aaron started to say Bah they burst out with new passion as for this Moses the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt we wot not what Is become of him Then spake Aaron saying Break ort the golden earrings which are in the ears of your wives of your sons and of your daughters and bring them unto incWe will We will they cried with one accord and almost before Aaron realized there had been cast at his feet a great pile of glittering pieces of Jewelry And as the golden calf was com pleted and set up a great feast was proclaimed and on the morrow they all came together and after their offerings had been made after the manner shown them by Moses they sat down to a great feast Then they gave themselves to the reckless abandon which had characterized the religious festivals of Egypt and which under the tutelage of Seled they had been led to plan for there before the mountain of God But In the midst of their merry making while the glittering calf was blazing out in the sunlight and daz zling the people with Its beauty there came a sound from the mountain side which caused the people to pause and look up- There stood their leader Moses gaz ing upon the wild scene They saw his eyes flash they saw him dash at his feet the tablets he was bearing they saw him rush down the hill in righteous indignation into their midst and they feared greatly Why was it that in the presence of one man who was willing to stand with God they were as nien without strength Why was it that all the blatant courage and boasting which had stained their lips during the past few days was gone Ah had Aaroh understood as did Moses that one with God Is a majority there had been no golden calf there had been no such awful stain of sin resting upon the peopleSBut not all were abashed in the presence of that man of God While yet the people were trembling before MoseSi and he was casting the imago to the ground and grinding it to pow der Seled was rallying his followers and had withdrawn to one side of the Moses stood in the gate of the camp and cried Who is on the Lords side Let him come unto mei all the sons of Levi gath ered themselves unto him and when he had commanded them he sent them through the camp to destroy every man who would notreturn unto the Lord Thus there fe l that day 3000 men and among them their leader Seled who unrepentant and unyielding withstood Moses and his follower tome faces +tiH iZl

to the sun god he worships Fortyseveathstreet jot the Stock Yards station f Captlancy He Was Attached to a Ball and Chain ian Cruelly Beaten for the last three or four years on his return from school he has been taken to a stockade in the rear of his hone and there locked up Once in tile stockade the little fellow has been at tached by the waist to a heavy chain at the end of which is a 60pound ball and from early in the afternoon until 4 sundown he has been compelled to remain In captivity Once he ran away from his parents but was recaptured and given extra imprisonment and several severe thrashings as a result of his disobfe 4Ience The stockade in the rear of the Boesrup home is surrounded by ia fence about 16 feet in height It is barren of any movable object and the ground is covered with gravel In onte corner is a small outhouse roofed wltn 4tar and gravel It is so arranged thalt the afternoon sun may blaze down upon it In addition to the natural difficuitiek TOTTERING 70 LED THE

spotwhere he had bee when crying She spoke to him bu he would not moveX On closer Invest gation she was horrified to see of scaling a wall 16 feet in height the boy has never been allowed to roam at liberty within the stockade To his waist has been fastened the middle P f a chain made of heavy cast iron the ends of which are fastened to a ball weighing 55 or 60 pounds The attention of the pplice was called to the treatment of the boy by those living In the neighborhood who told Capt Clancy that the cries of the child could be heard in the adjoining houses although on account of the high wall it was impossible to see what was being done with him Mamie Ryan a nextdoor neighbbr told the officers that on one of the hottest days this summer herr curiosity prompted her to look through a chink in the wall She saw the little boy lying appar ently overcome by the heat on the top of the outhouse The ball and chain were attached to his waist and for more than half an hour he lay without shifting his position Then his father came from the house with a pail of waterin his hand He threw the contents over the pros trateboy and without waiting to see whether he recovered or not returned to the house The police have learned that in addition to using the stockade for the purpose of inflicting punishment on his son Boesrup each week conducted services within its walls On Sunday mornings and at other times the family would be brought out and Boesrup mounting a soap box would explain the tenets of his faith During these dissertations his con gregation consisted of his sonrhis daughter and his wife all of whom were compelled to kneel on the ground while the service was in progres Mrs Boesrup and the dau hter Helen 17 years old would not tell the police the nature of these service The boy is too young to understand the full import of the incantations ut tered by his father but stated to Capt Clancy that frequent reference was made to the sun and that his father on many occasions talked with the greatest reverence of the power of the sun We would all go out in the back yard on Sunday mornings said the boy to Capt Clancey and father would get up on a soap box The rest of is would kneel on the gravel It was very hot but not so bad as in the afternoons when J would be in there aloneFather would talk a lot about the sun and how it gave us light and life and a lot of other things but I couldnt understand it all He always looked at the sun when he was praying BRIDE OF TO ALTAR BY PROUD OF 19 the Civil War performed CHARMED Reptiles The Aged Bride Smiled and Was
