And His Troubles As Seen By Mr M D L C- oicanougher The Suns Long Riiri Correspondent HE ALSO MAKES A fEW REMARKS ABOUT DEAD CATS SOMETIMES WONDER if people appreciate their coun ty paper and the untiring ef forts the editor puts forth to improve the country It may be that many of us dont stop to think of the good he is do ing He stands as a watchman upon the tower and sees the enemy afar off and does not fail to give his readers warning of the approaching foe He is a trumpeter whose bugle blasts give out no uncertain sounds When any great crises comes he can be depended upon for he puts on his fighting clothes falls into line usually of course on the right side turns his guns loose up on the enemy and is the last one to leave his post When the last shot has been firedand the victory won he in a manner begins again to pursue the even tenor of his way He goes to- one births marriages deaths rec iap JVtie8 about his etc He says goo IS town enemies and tries to build updand county We some times two how he stands the strain We know he must get tired and discouraged and feel as if his labors were all in vain apd that his readers do not appreciate his efforts It is then The Man of Ink needs help and encouragement and there are many ways of helping him One is by keeping our subscrip tions paid up We often become negli gent about this materthis very im liveluponthat need to be supplied Let us examine the label on our paper once in a while and see how our subscriptions stand Again we can help by recommending the paper t J otters by telling them what a grand man the editor is and what great paper he is making by convincing them that they can not do without the paper Th re was a time in our lives when we looked upon a county paper as of little worth and im portance but years of experience and observation have taken away that ero neous idea and we now look upon it as anybountyeditor by going right into his office oc casionally and having a talk with him by telling him something good for his paper and how we appreciate his ef forts He wont get mad no he wont if jou think he will try it Instead of getting mad a new lightwill come into his eyes anda kind smile willcome over his face and you will leave believing he is a good man You can hardly realize just how helpful your God speeds have been to the sacrificing edi tor of your county paper The biggest thing in East Washing ton county just now is the school that is being taught collegeiby Prof S D an old institution pf learning having been founded by our fathers in 1857 but was never in a more flourishing condition than ht present Prof Campbell is at best and putting forth the effort of his life and the school is increasing under his management everyday If the attendance continues to increas- the building will hive to beenlarged andpan assistant employed It was a this seat of learning that the school master with the rod first instilled into fthe mind of the writer the importance of Seeking the paths of knowledge Many are the bright boys and girls that have passed through and out of its walls to help and bless mankind To the farmers and others who maybe interested in the care of harness we will say a few words First we should buy the very best which is the cheapest in the end second class arti cles of this kind are dear at any price Next we should keep on hand good har ness oil and there is none better than OctfOt will resist sweat and water prevent it from rotting and make it soft and pliable which will keep it from breaking And too we should keep them jell repaired A stitch in time sayes lujs an old adage but is especially nine mess Farmers true in regard to ping but be preforepared with leather and necessari which cost but it will pay in the long run These directions will apply to all articles made of leather and if fol lowing will make them almost inde structable The pernicious habit of unthinking people dropping worthless and often diseasedcats on their neighbors pre vaijs to a very disagreeable extent in our community and the nuisance in creases more and more The writer WIth some of his neighbors believe they are being mistreated in this respect There has so much superstition gathered around the cat that many believe they have nine lives and it is bad luck to move or kill that branch of the feline tube but will impose upon their friends by dumping their refused and surplus cats upon them and thus compel their neighbors to do what they win not dothat is kill their cats Is this doing the right thing We believe there are more quail than at any time in twenty years so much for the game law One hardly ever hears a gun fired the hunters are tak ing a rest now that the warm weather prevents the sale of rabbits and we guess our little friends in gray which still seem to be plentiful after being hunted and slaughtered so long are tickled allover it and are laughing in their sleeves at the bovs Miss Ora Matherly isimproving nicely Shehas malaria

compared to a similar suit on the head of a certain Isrealrtish hero to wit one Samson came there without his wish desire or mental volition and thus far and no further had he considered it as a spec ial favour from So in an hour of weakness even as said Samson r he had visited the tonsorial parlour and had loft the source of his strength with the girls The above ae the of the defendant which the read er will see amounts to a confession The takes up the major portion of the court records but we lack space to give even extracts from the appeals for vengeance that emanated from the young lady

the bettermentof all mankind 4t- ea ultim salvation of souls Of one thing we are abso lutely certain all Christian bodies are GOOD Certainly we disagree We would bsuper naturalif we didnt Our creeds 4and our beliefs have not universally tallied since the crucifixion of Christ and they nesverj will so long as time lasts Wej WILL contend with one anotherj but sp long as it is done in a genteel way oq harm can result ItS right too for each religious denomina tion to present its beliefs to the people in as clear znd logical a manner as is possiblef This is an age in which people are seek ing informationI But this mudslinging in the churches should be stqpped By way of parenthesis however we want to say that there is very little unpleasantness of jthis nature in pringfield and fashington county The churches seem to get along together jadmtrably An unfortunate controversy has been carried on for thej past three or Jour weeks throu h the col umns of the Breckenridge Demo crat The controversy was between a preacher who had lec tllredat Hardinsburg and Rev Father Gabe of the Catholic church It seems that the lecturer had attacked the Catholic church during the course of his remarks and Father Gabe in the next issue of the Democrat denied the truthfulness ot some ot the lecturers assertions hence the discussion We have no doubt that this newspaper con troversy has left many sore spots anddone much more harm tHan good We are personally acquainted with r Father Gabe We owned the Breckenridge Democrat and lived at Hardinsburg one year Father Gabe was one of our best friends He said many kind things about our paper when it needed kind things said about it He paid for ten yearly subscrip tions cash in advance and in deed we felt very kindly toward the Rev Father abeWe thought so much of him that we printed his picture in the paper and told about what a good man he was- JJtIHe is genteel he possesses an even temper he is kindhearted and big of intellect We dont know what the lecturer said about the Catholic church But we infer his criticisms were severe and we are quite surthat what he did say would have best been unsaid When one religious organiza tion attacks another religious organization HARM is the inevit able resultnever good And his Satanic Majesty dances a lie in his delight We always believed that the ajar of the Christian religion is to teach tranquility loye All and Indeed universal brother hood religious bodies cer tainly look to one end the salya tion of souls They are all en deaydnng to do good in the world r endeavoring to rout the devil and his emissaries and when they quarrel among themselves they waste amunitiort and lose time We can say to the credit ofC Father Gabe that during this controversy he said not one vordI against anybodys religious belief he only defended his he hada right todothat We are not a Catholic We lont know what the Catholic church teaches but we can riot b e convinced that it teaches that which practiced by those embracing its aistumbling bl paths of righteousness The Catholic church to say the least ot it isa great body It las in it some of the intellect oi the country =men andwomen who are endeavoring tobetter conditions and it seems to us preposterous and absurd for folks to contend that these men nd women would pursue a course religiously which would result in disaster to the soul Father Ryarlwas a Roman Catholic Arld few men since the beginning of time haye pos sessed such a Great Hearb of Love When the So th lay deeding in the wakes o an aw ful war the heart andso of this greatman went out in fervent prayer to all her people regard less of creed He was an inspiration and a shining light in the gloom which powered low over the wreckage of battle And when he weary of lifes conflicts weary of the Heart aches and the struggles closed his eyes to an angels touch and went to be with the God he s6 dearly loved the peoplehis people of the South his people of every sect an- creedwept d asthey would weep oer the grave of a loved parent And Father Ryan was a Ro man Catholic All Christian religions are good good for men andwomen TO disagree with one another is no sin But mudslinging is damnable All churches teach charity Charity is a fundamental princi pIe of the Christian religion It within itself is a pretty religion He who goes about ministering to sufferers caring for the desti titute comforting the afflicted and sorrystrtcken is as a great flaming light in a valley of shadows We have noticed that the Cath olic church very energetically teaches charity charity toward all people rich and poor high and low Did you ever have a a Catholic neighbor Did you ever notice with what tenderness the Catholic women waitedupon the sick in your home How they came day in and day out and sat by the bedside ot your loved lone fighting the fever trying to the utmost to relieve the sufferer We have seen We have seep them in our own home and they never

peanuts You can always buy peanuts in Hodgenville but breathkillers are no longer on the market However some of the boys carry a few in their pockets for spec ial occasions Scyne times they are needed to convince folks that nothing has been doing at New Haven New Haven a beautiful little town in the county of Nelson furnishes the boys over at Hodgenville once or twice a week with an article which necesi tates a breathkiller A nigger called Killdee another called Pol Parrot and another alled HonestyL just outside the townlimits at the foot of Old Red Hill upon whose pretty sloping crest slumber

discussing the best way to combat the mail orderhoueItia an important subject and ight to be discussed Every business man in Springfield and Washington county ought to lock horns with the mail order house and fight it- dutout of the town and country But it is largely the fault of the businessmen that this outoftown business has increased its patronage here during the past few years They have not fought it with the right sort of determination they have depended too much upon destinies shaping themselves and trade will come our wayanyhow and the mail order house continued to grow great long arms to its octopus dycontinued to reach out in all directions until it now affects every branch of business It the tide is not turned people will send their shoes to Chicago after a while to have them halfsoled and blacked Almost weekly our attention is called to this rapidly growing evil It is al ways suggested that we fight em Business men tell us that we ought to reprove the people through the columns of our paper and insist that they buy at home This we have often done The columns of The Sun are open ea ch week to the merchant or other person who has an argument to present against the mail order house Every merchant in Washington County will insist that something must be done but he too often wants the other fellow to do it Believe us we are always ready to hit the mail order house a lick weare anx ious to throw stones at itglad to assist in any legitimate way to stop this leak age a leakage which lets out annually large sums of money that never more will return But it is very discourag ing to a newspaper man when he is combatting an evil of this nature to have the home merchant turn down his advertising proposition We knowevery newspaper man in Ken tucky knowsthe people who buy from mail order houses knowthat ad vertising is the weapon with which the mail order house fightsthe weapon with which itwins its battles Take printers ink away from Montgomery Ward Co Sears Roebuck Co and all other mail order houses in ex istence and the givingupoftheghost thesteppingdownandout would be universal They would not consider for one minute the advisability of trying to continue business at the same old standIn every little story paper printed in the big dailies in the magazines they carry advertisements and it is said that when an advertising bill is presented they pay it with a ha ha and call for more of the same In these advertisements they offer to the trade a great List of articles which look like bargains and the people buy Not because they would not rather buy at home but because hav jug read the mail order house advertise ment they areUfully convinced that real bargains are offered If every merchant in Washington county would use the same persua sion to get buye rs to their stores that the mail order ho se uses to get orders from the country folk they would soon settle the hash of the mail order house so far as this county is concerned But many of them WILL NOT How are the people to know that they can get better bargains at home if th ey are not told through an adverts fn r medium People are inclined to biy where they can save and when ever they read in cold print that a cer tan article is going to be sold at a low fit ure they count the rcoinand go after the fhemailorder house advertti keepsjconstantly at it It1 knows the people must be ding donged into buying and it rushes into print every day An occasional ad thessame way that a few grains of powder help speeding the bullet 1Is it revelation when we say that some people in

Crusade Against Unjust Laws Women Prime Mdvers fn all Great Reforms They Cannot Cope With Men in the Manipulation of Politics Strength Lies In Tact and Intention i Copyright 1906 by Joseph B Bowles Mrs John A Logan is known and es AccompanyingtIerinent of the volunteer soldiers through ottstabllshlngI wiers From the close of the war till her husbands death she was his closest ad Srlser In political matters Since his death ishe has retained her before naUonaltraiTThat women have wielded a power ful influence in the political world can loot be denied when we contrast the position she occupied in this country jas late as 1850 with her present stat tus There was not a state in the union which did not bear upon its statute books most unjust and un righteous laws under which a woman could be deprived of her property and subjected to the most outrageous treatment and literally robbed of her inheritance through the profligacy and recklessness of an unworthy husband fehe had no protection against the Cruelty of parent or husband or the disposition of anything without her consent If she rebelled against their authority they had the power to de r letroy her reputation and could take her children away from her if she pad any and they were so disposed the laws did not give them this power the practice sanctioned and sustained men in their unjust domination over women The unjust rulings of a school hoard precipitated Mis Anthonys rebellion against the unfair treatment of wo imen and caused the first movement for woman suffrage For a halfcen ttury Miss Anthony Mrs Stanton and others of their heroic colleagues kept up the warfare until the obnoxious Jaws were expunged and much more Just and righteous ones enacted In some of the states the right off female suffrage has been extended and women have been chosen to official positions including that of representatives in the state legislatures and I am proud to say that they have made good records It has been grat ifying to know that the presence of women at the polls has had a salutary effect on the elections The riotous disposition which characterized the balloting on election days and not in frequently ended in bloodshed has been changed to a holiday occasion and general goodnatured festivities 1 hope to see the great improvement in political methods anticipated and claimed by the advocates of femaie suffrage IIII Through the coalition of the various elements of discord some of these states had passed into the hands of Irresponsible men without records Which entitled them to fill these post tions They have been a hindrance to all legislation for the welfare of state or nation But in the recognition of the betterment of social and Political conditions it is to be hoped that the ablest and best of all com munities may be brought to the front and that speedily the highest class of representatives may come from the states that have Inaugurated woman suffrage The most ungenerous must confess that behind all great reform movements in this country women have been the inspiration and most potent force In religion temperance social and municipal reforms women have been the primary and untiring work highmoralprogression and Christian civilization In the education of the masses women have been most conspicuous a majority of the teachers in the public schools are and always have been women This daily contact with the youth of the country has given them the largest opportunities for the guidance of their pupils into channels of the highest moral rectitude and patriotism Next to the moth0rsrthV public school teachers are t most Influences in the Iaad baccomplisha r J and compensation so that men and women would receive a like remuneration for like service it would be an achievement that would bring a proper reward for her labor It would be found that in the same line of work in many instances women would re eelVe more and men less than they do now with the fixed standard that men are always paid more than women for equal work This unequal pay has led governments state and national and private business enter prises into the employment of many women who as a rule accomplish more and demand less than men They are prompt and absolutely relia ble in the discharge of duties assigned them without questioning the impor tance or necessity of them In conset quence men are constantly threaten ing rebellion against the employment of women on the ground that women can do nothing for the perpetuation of Individual or partyi supremacy because they cannot vote or participate in political logrolling I do not believe that the or sanlza tion of womens political clubs ever materially aided any party They are not by nature fitted for the work ex pected of political clubs No selfrer specting woman or would en gage in canvassing city wards in the interests of any party candidate local or otherwise Their power lies in a different direction Women like men ar always am bitious to fill the petty offices of any organization to which they belong and are toojealous of each other to fol low the lead of any one woman They arenot logical and are rarely well informed on the questions which enter into all political campaigns They cannot discuss anything without al lowing personal preferences and prejudices to enter the discussion In the rivalry for election to the offices of societies of women everyone has wit nessed with much regret unseemly scrambles and ignoble schemes that would disgrace even a political dema gogue Frequently these contests as In mens societies have resulted in the elevation of the least eligible because women of true ability will not lend themselves to intrigue and ills honorable means for advancement- It should be the ambition of evory woman to be well informed an all subjects especially those bearing upon domestic and political economy She should be able to give legitimate rea sons for her opinions and to defend them with dignity and intelligence Pretensions unsupported by actual knowledge will affect little in the matter of conversion tb ones views or inducing a following Brainy women are apt to be too assertive to accom plish their desires or create an En thuslasm for any cause they espouse Women are too honest and too frank to cope with men in the science and manipulation of politics We believe that womans greatest tactfulnessgratified by seeing lieopinions appropriated and manfully defended provided she makes no sign of recog nition of them for few men will admit that they are the ast Impressed by any theory or suggestion advanced by a woman The women who have wielded the most powerful influence over the mas terful minds of the world have claimed the minimum been the most reticent and the least in evidence in the vie tories scored Their keen pjgrceptlve faculties and intuitive knowledge oi human nature are heavenborn gifts and the women who have cultivated these gifts and have filled the positions of devoted wives have had the immeasurable gratification of knowing they had rendered valuable aid to their husbands in the realization of their ambitions by the judicious exer clue of them There are many brilliant women who have left an Impression upon the times in which they lived who haven ver been wedded except to the special cause they have espoused I am ready to ascribe all hdnor to them and can feel that had the fates decreed an eligible cop rlnershlp they would have achieved even greater renown j We Grow Young We are a younger people than we were 60 years ago The proportion of babies to the total population has Increased The propor on people has diminished So says the United States census of 1900 Of the babies that are born three now reach the age of five for every two that did 50 years ago Infant mortality has diminished but old gq morality has increased Since 1890 the increase In the death rate from 60 to 64 is seven per cent from 65 to

experiment station one lot fed with silage and the other without it were marketed with 25 cents per 100 pounds in favor of the silage fed steers In this tet silage was esti mated to be worth 329 per

farming and feeding the World It Is Interesting to note the differ ent ideas which farmers hold as to cropsThereriation in the succession of the crops grown means rotation In the 1ft eral sense of course it is rotation but not in the sense in which the term is used by the experiment stations Wheat may be succeeded by barley and barley by oats and the bare fallow by wheat again but this does not in the true sense mean rota tion All these crops and also the bare fallow detract from the fertil ity of the soil and put virtually nothing into it in return A true rotation has in it a soil builder such as grass clover or green crops plowed under The rotation described above will stimulate production for the time being but it does so by depleting the soil more quickly of its fertility than by growing but one crop Preserved Grapes Grapes are too seedy as well as rich in juices to be preserved excepting in the form of jam either plain or spiced To prepare t the grapes for these forms of preserving pick from the stems wash and press the pulp out of the skins Put skins in one preserving kettle and the pulp in an other together with any juice that has run from the grapes Let them cook
