gubernatorial nomination and ohnison has ever said thath would be a candidate At the prope time how ever we believe the honor will be of fered to him andwe are duite sure he will accept it It is admitted by all that he would carry Kentucky by an enormous majority and that he would giye th people an ideal administration IN FULL RETREAT t Under the captionHIn Full Re treat William JBryan in the next issue of the Commoner will discuss the Republican con ntIori as follows The Republicans who attended the National Convention as spectators and olfPresidentI1ollette rnusf have felt indignant as deleIgktes running oyer each other in their effort to get away from the La Follette reforms some of which had been in dorsed by the President himself Congressman Cooper of Wisconsin repre senting the La Follette men brought in a minority report signed by himself alone Fiftytwo members of the Com mittee signed themajority report and one signed the minority report The Republican party will find the ratio of fiftytwo fo one a v embarrassing onElto deal with in the coming cam pain I Mr Coopers report contained a declaration in favor of publicity as to campaign1 funds It was lost by a vote of 880 to 94 more than nine to one and yet the President has been advo cating legislation in favor of publicity r as to campaign contributions and Sec retaryaft wrote a letter to rBur rows the passage of a pub licity bilL How fortunate it was that Secretary Taf ts letter was finally disco rered and published Senator Burrows the man to whom the Taft letter was addressed was the temporary chairman of the convention and the convention overwhich he pre sided turned down the publicity plank by a vote of nine to one who will deny that on this subject the Republican party is retreating Another plank of the La Follette pjatform authorized the ascertaining of the value of the railroads This plank was lost by a vote of 917 to 66 nearly 15 to 1 and yet President Roosevelt has advocated this very proposition Here is a retreat on the railroad ques tion In another column reterence is made to the injunction plank The injunction plank adopted by the Pepub lican Convention is a retreat from the position taken by the President and from the position taken by Secretary Taft in his speeches although neither of them went as far as they ought to have gone in their effort to prevent what is known as government by in junction Here is the third retreat The President has advocated the in come tax as a means of preventing swollen fortunes and of equaling the burdens of government The Repub ti lican platform is silent on the subject Was the President right in the position he took If so then the convention was wrong in not indorsing him Will the Republican voters follow the Presi dent in this just demand or will they follow the Republican organization in recreating fromit liThe President advocated an inheri tance tax but the Renublican Conven tion is silent on that subject Was the President ahead ot the Republican par ty in advocatingthis reform or has the Republican party receded from the Presidents position Did the President given a false alarm on this question or has the party sounded a retreat In the Presidents message to Con gress last spring he presented art indictment against the conspiracy formed among the great lawbreakers to pre vent the enforcement of the law and to evade the punishments provided by law The platform adopted by the Republican Convention contains no intimation or1 danger If there are any conspiracies the convention did not see them if there are any combinations it has not heard of them if there are any dangers they are unconscious of them Uvas the President mistaken when he issued his defiance or are the Re publican manager deceived when they think that an aroiised public will calm ly contemplate the encroachments of predatory wealth This is retreat num her six The qoiiyention by vote of 866 to 114more than sey n to one yoted down the plank in favor of the popular election of United States Senators It is true that the President and Secretary Taft have never advocated TheyIthe most popular reform in the United States today is the reform that has for its object the election of United States Senators by direct vote It has five tithes been indorsed by the National House of Representativesthree times when the House of Representa tives was Republican f It has been in dorsed by nearly twothirds ot the States of the Union and there is prob ably not a State in the Union in wnich it would not ba indorsed at a popular election and yet in spite of the record made in the House and by the various States this reform is rejected by a seventoone vote in the Republican National Convention Here are seven propositions upon which the Republican party in National Convention assembled has retreated from the position taken by that party in Congress or from the position taken by the President What have Roosevelt Republicans to say The President has awakened a spirit ol reform within his party he has at least reyealed to the world that there are reformers in the Republican party pan that spirit now he quelled by a standpat convention Millions of Republicans have enlisted at the Presidents pall to arms and are ready to march forward will they furl their banners and turn back merely be capse the President acquiesces in the sounding of a retr at- One Sad pay One sad day when the suns gold crown Jeweled the desolate dreamy west- I came with a burden and laid it down Under the lillies and leaves to rest And weeping I

began long before El Gizeh was They were ever since the two played as boys in the mud pools of the river hallows near the yellow walls of Beni in the country of the khedive Though Mohammed and I Hassan had been plafmatesscarcey- ey r had they been friends Hassan Would cheatat gamesihe would evade forfeits he was full of tricks But there came a tjime when they were no longer children for the hot sun of the desert and the long burn ng glbw of the red sands makes of children men quickly Then came El Glzeh and the rivalry became like that which men call hatred and with It envy bitterness thought El Gizeh was their first common love Long before they had thought of women they had each loved El Gizeh tt was their first great desire to possess to have and to hold j El Gizeh was not a thing of beauty He was a long looselimbed weakly shambling thing trembling as a worn an after a sickness wabbling on his warty legs blinking at the sun and snuggling selfishly to his mother This was El Gizeh when first old Ibrahim the old uncle of the boys presented him 1o thetnAs the boys only quarreled over Ei Glzeh Ibrahim decided they should race to see who should possess him Said Ibrahim I win bestow him on the one who goes quickest to the wells beyond the walls and who comes back with water in a cup More than half the cup must be filled for it is not right that the water be spilled on the way run ping But first I will assemble the judges and we shall have the race in the evenlIlgI At a signal the two boys were off like jackals Mohammed was the swifter runnerbutcunning Hassan knew the distance and he felt sure of emplytcup carried in their hands Mo hummed was leading but a very little and as they passed the house of Mir zah the water carrier Hassan saw Ash watching them from the door Way Hassan knew that she would be waiting for their return and boys JUough they w rewfheyp ran hard and fast that this one inlghtsee There H had been rivalry of late between them far her favor Nearing the well Hassan was 1 breathing In gasps and running heav Ily The pace had told on them both and they must now slowl carrying the water Quite together they came away balancing the cups gin gerly and striving to run with all care It was on nearing again the house of the water carrier that Hassan sprint ed and Mohammed following him passed close by the house And Has san feeling himself rapidly weaken ing in his stride sought for some trick by which he could defeat the other whose pattering feet he heard so close behind The girl Aishe stood watching With a quickreach caughtherrunning Mohammed blundered intQ cupIchuckling ran on to the winning of El Gizeh v or I Two years go by quickly And Mo hammed found wiimself thinking less and less of El dizeh save In admira 1 tion for it had grown to be a treasure of the desert strong fleet as camels are fleet and enduring but he thought more and more of Aishe who had those graces in early maidenhood which have inspired the Arab love songs Here too Mohammed found his irival anxious to defeat him Hassar was a likely youth he had camels oi his own he was the favorite of qlt Ibrahim who In aging had grown old In shrewdness and craft Mohammed found himself with Httte measure of success untU he bought a camel and Aishe the light of his eyes the treajj jure of his love fled with him riding before him They two crossed the long bittei stretches of the desert braving the hot winds of the days and planning S their future in the dim starlit watches of the nights f Years passed again before a certain clever young fellow Who had lived all his life beyond even greater seas and who was an adept with words wrote a flaming announcement and with it labeled the fences ot a countryside reading MOHAMMED THE MYSTERY A MARVELOUS MIRACLEMOVING MAGICIAN A Wondrous Troupe oi Arab Balancers from the Vast Deserts of the East Headed by Mokammed the Mystery THE GREATEST MARVEL OF MOD ERNTIlttS The man who wrote

camels and thought him o lya drowsing mild eyed thing like the others It would be hard to say when first the bitter enmity between the two Ajrabs would culminate in a public ex hlbitfon of temper And now the heart of Mohammed was troubled itI was oppressed thatI he a true son of tjie east should be from his own country a soI amid the people of a strange nlf theseItblngsti n He would not now nomad

replied his voice had in it something of a stern sympathy and not a little consideration He had listened attentively and there could have been put to the oriental no greater argument no finer problem no more subtle possibility than that of a child the firstborn Hassan knew not his own and therefore as an oriental he had grieved That Aishe should bthe mother of this little one Aishe tlie one he had sought for his own lov was enough to choke his vengeance Into nothing Thou last a son 0 Mohammed he asked quietly I knov not if there be a son replied tie other his face lighting eagerly I same to

Magisterial meeting at the court house Tuesday at 2 oclock for the discussion of the bridge ques tion There are several bridges thatr need covering badly namely the Mt Zion bridge across Little Beech the covered bridge at Rock Run also the bridge at FrederIcksburg needs immediate attention And though it requires the consum mation of various amounts from other sections of the road it will be best for the traveling public to have good bridges both for the preservation o vehicles and convenience in travel At this meeting the question as t whether or not the Supervisor has right to make public or private con tracts of hiS own free will to patties unable to furnish bond for the keeping up of certain sections of road withou- assuming the responsibility himself was a point jof discussion Also

child a mem ber fa large family her clothes were those handed down to her from sisters who had outgrown them When shegrew older she was occasionally called upon to teach the village school when the regular teacher was ab sent Even in the matter of a love affair she did not have a lover who was absolutely her own While An drew Truitt called on her for ta time It was only because of a falling out with his old sweetheart aid he re turned to her at her first smile So when Mr Spranzy asked Matty to marry tim to take the place of the Mrs Spranzy who was gone it seemed the most inevitable thing in the world 1 tshe should do so Farther it was going into a new world After the first wonder of itall the joy of possession had come upon her It was hers all hers For she gradu ally realized that the new home was Indeed her town and one from which slo could not be dispossessed that the house and the husband were hers and not the less hers for having be longed to a former Mrs Spranzy There was not the slightest thought of jealousy in her simple heart there was only gratitude She would stand in the doorway of a room and wonder how the other Mrs Spranzy had cleaned it She tried In every way she knew to discover the plansand methods of the woman who had owned it all before it became hers for there entered her heart a great ambition not only would site show her affection and gratitude ito Mr Spranzy by making him as ciomfort Able as his first wife had made him but she would pay her predecessor the tribute of doing it precisely In the first Mrs1 Spranzys way But the idea once conceived she had some difficulty in finding out what that way was Her husband was chary of speak ing about his first wife Miss Matty asstilllteendid on one occasion ask him how Mrs Spranzy had made the brown bread he was so fond of and insisted upon having every day Mr Spranzy bad seemed so uneasy that when he had gone poor Miss Matty looked II penitently with tearfilled eYes at the portrait and said ashess often raid She must V been a mighty kind woman to be mourned like that Then one evening Mr Spranzy came home with the letter sayinghis first wifes cousin Julia Keene was coming on a visit for a few days In the two days before Mrs iCeenes arrival MisS Matty workedard to have tier house In order and when she was at last awaiting the mo mfent when Mr Spranzy shoullj bring the guest she went into the dining room and glanced up again at the portrait as If for courage OhIhope I have everything all right she said and clasped her hands nervously together Then she rwipe4 her eyes and went tp the front ddr 1Z tr l Mrs Keenes large person was pre ceding Mr Spranzy up the little rose bordered walk Oh you got roses she WS say lug I always did tell Julia t11 needed flowers She nodded sPlaceJ th

shesald Julia never theJ clutter of flowers said green grass was good enough for her andj plenty of trouble to Lake care I like something real Bright an cheerful my self an Im glad to see youjr taste runs the same way Everything in the house called for comment and always brought forth Ms Matty was sj filled with amazement at the things Mrs Keene was revealing however thatv she almost forgot to be glad at the ladys words of praise But 1j was at supper that she receivel the greatest shock of the day Land you must think Im cbmpny thetjsys cousin when Miss Matty sum moned her to the little dining room Not but what X like it I like ito take a little pains for folks myself and I like to be the jone pains Is took for But Julia waanft that kind was she Josiah What Oh yes I alnt sayin Ibut what Julia was a good woman an my own cousin too but J guess ypur second o sbetter tjy you Miss Matt this brown bread is as 1betterbutfor me t It was only theS desirability ibtsam pling the excellence of the meal gave the lady pause but Missj Matty had o chance to aYh Im real glad fouJlke it Mis Keene I make it fresh every day for Mr Spranzyts used to It that way an I want to dp everything just like she didS J Mrs Keene laid down her buttered sliCe of bread and looked iat Miss Matty then at Mr Spranzy When Mr and Mrs Spranzy went up to bed that night no word was spoken between them nor did Mr Spranzy meet his wifes questioning eyes As the days passed he b cal1e evidently depressed and uneasy He t j IJ s r avoided Mrs Keene and her constant tream of talk more and more and his wife becam anxious at his failing ap petite Miss Matty herself good soul was daily receiving fresh disillusions It was becoming clear to tier 1hat her conception of the first Mrs Spranzys character was not per haps the correct one but her loyal heart refused to admit the truth I thought I could hold my tongue about it but I cant said Mrs Keene one norning after Mr Spranzy had left he house Iwant to tell you right now Matty Spranzy that you are o le 9f the best women I ever saw an a better housekeeper that I am myse f which is sayin much but I want to tell you also that you are fOol I aint a mite surprised at aI slab Spranzys foolin you the way hes I een doin His first wife was my own cousin named after the same aunt was named for too But that aint oin to keep me from tellin the truth about her Here you are work im ycilrself to dath tryln to do likes d dDo YOil know how she dM1 No you W ill Imgoin rtp tell you own cpusiior not You said you wanted tom ke Josiah comfortable the way Tulfa did Land Julia never made him jomfortable a day In her life Bp yc i really suppose she made fresh bread for him every day Do you really suppose sne let him lay down on th 5 best velvet sofa at all much less vith his booton Do yOu this house was bright an thinkI Thought Could Hold My Tongue pleasant for film when Julia was alive Well it wasnt Julia had dyspepsia an never cooked a thing she couldnt eatI herself They was mighty few thing she could eats it was mighty little variety Josiah got on the table She kept all the shutters drawn in soS hot to fade the carpet an the wall paper an Josiah had to go in an out the kitchen dOQr sos not to tramp dirt through the front hall He just loves flowers and Julia wouldnt have one on the place She said shfc liked grass better but I always did Think she did it just to devil Josiah Comfortable Well I guess he wasnt comfortable If he ever hpd any pleasures or luxuries it was outside o this Chouse Toward the last she wouldnt even ret him smoke outdoors because she said she could not stand the smell of tobacco in his hair an his clothes an here hes sID 1In in every room in the house Say anything about her Of course he dont He just lays back an lets you do for him What man would ttt An hes afraid to give you so mijth as a word o thanks for it for fear youll find out he never had it- t before an slack up on It If ever a man was better off without a woman that man was Josiah Spranzy when Julia passed away Land She never give him a pleasant word nor a pleasant look so far as I ever heard and she never did one thing to make him comfortable If she was my own first cousin a hundred times over Id haye to say Itshe was just about as mean a woman as ever drew breath of life an here you are settln her Up above your mantel to go an

first family skeleton is the common belief that there is only one of us It was midnight in the luxurious country mansion the hoirie of one ul our wealthiest and most important cit izens That comes said the ise ond fain ily skeleton from tradition There was a time when therejas only one of lis He served r purposes He lived in a closet most of the time and was dragged forth only on state oc aasionshence the delusion that many entertain today They fprget entirely said the third family skeleton that this isatime of specialists As if in this enlightened age one skeleton could dQ the business for family At which sally every one of them of course laughed Why said the fourthmiIyskel eton as a matter of fact it takes a l syndicate The first fatally skeletozirapped on the table with his right Now gentlemen he said to busi nessThe daughter of tile house as f you all know comes of age tomorrow We must decide what is to be done with her f First then ijet her be brought down here Four of you will go upstairs and get her At this four of the family skeletons filed solemnly out of the room Si lently they ascended the stairs SiU lently they entered the room where the sleeping daughter of the house lay dreaming Her lips slightly parted 1wOre as red as June roses i her cheeks lull and round held the lambent glow 5ofwith each inspiration was white and Sfirm with curves of beauty The four skeletons stood one at each corner of the bed and stared down at her from eyeless sockets I presume said the skeleton at her osseIagain rigged up and fastened to the sides that thing entitled a heart it might beat responsively to this touching sight As it is I have no feeling lor hej Have you brothers 1 The other skeletons grinned None they renlied in chorus but the stern voice of pur duty Where duty calls us we must go Then they lifted the sleeping girl and bore her down to their compan ions And they laid her quite correct ly and skilfully on the table Cover ered with the white silken sheet she lay there a central figure of inho cence and purity 4And now said thev head skele ton before assigning ourselves to our respective stations let us first diag tw nose this case Just what is the mat ter with this fair young thing First money said the second skel eton Her father by religiously rob bing the widqws and orphans bought for her mother a place In society which she is about to succeed to Mon ey has made her selfish cruel and artificial Goodsaid the head skeleton Number three what else is the mat- t r with her Defective education said number three promptly Shecan speaK French read and play music drive a fourinhand and mix all kinds of drinks But her character is anemic That is her moral perceptions have thatthewhereas she was made for the oIl- diifshe knew it fEnough said the head skeleton Now gentlemen once more to bus ness Remember that there is work for willing bones to do I shall now assign you to your several tasks Turning to the secorid skeleton Ion his right he said You will have charge of her social ambitionsee that nothing interferes with it Teach her to knbw when to snub when to groVelteach her when I to crush And to youturnlng to number threewill be assigned her matri monial ventures whom to marry how much to marry and how often See that you do not neglect your task for upon much marrying depends the whole fabric of social success And to you turning to number fourv1ll be left the sacred rights of t the children In the first place see I that there are none They are not only bad form but in her station of life so useless Do your duty therefore and fail not And to outurning to number flvemust 3e left the task of pre erving her leauty Keep her natural omplexion ping as long as possible and dont resort tot artificial methods
