jf 1V MEZ NUMBER 36 EDITORIAL SPRINGFIELD SUN ROGERSFijORE EDltOR it w WOE TO HIM THAT BtlLDETH TOWN WITH STABLISHETM CITY c ELECTION OF SENATORS r r J Editor Walton of the Kentucky sState Journal who drives center vbfteher than any other editor in Ken ucky l has the following to say abtuti the election of United States Senators bythe people I The election of United States Seria tors by the people has long been a 1ilxed desire of the Democratic party which ha succeeded more than once in pgetting a majority in the lower HOQse of Congress to support a constitutional amendment to that end The Senate has always killed the bill members doubtless thinking it easier to buy a legislature than a popular elec tion Since 1900 the Democratic party r has engrafted in its platform the growing demand of the people for the inno vation which fully twothirds of the States have endorsed The present platform of the party has this plank II We favor the election of United States senators ly direct vote of the people and regard this reform as the gateway to othernatIOnal reforms t uIt has been seen how corporate interests have bought their election and how literally they own certain Sena tors The peoples interests have been prostituted to increase predatory wealth until the question has become burning one that such elections shall Ibe put in the hands of the voters The Demo ratic party is pledged to that end ihd if its candidates are elected every 4 effort in their power will be to secure the reform Ons the other hand the Republican platform is silent on the matter When a plank providing for electing United States Senators by the people was up- i at the Chicago convention it was defeated by the overwhelming majority of 866 to 114 This shows that no relief tt froth corporate dominion can be secured from the Republican party which is tied hand and foot to the greedy cor por te interests If there was no other issuer nrthercampaign but this plank of the Democratic party alone it ought toqJ insure the election of Bryan and Kern expectDotningthe Republican ticket is elected which we nope and pray God will forbid Two or three times during the past tour or five weeks we hav called the attention of the farmers of Washington county to the failure of the Republican National Convention to adopt a plank declaring for the election of Senators by a direct vote of the people We r cagainas a very serious omisjpion t The Republican farmers of Washing tort county ought to ask some bf their Republican leaders to explainthe ae c iion of their National Convention in I i refusing to go on record as favoring this indisputably needed reform There is no other class of people as much in terested in this matter as the farming classT1 Especially is this true of the to bacco farmers Every farmer in Wash ington county very farmer in Ken tucky is interested ih the question of the tobacco tax There is not a farmer in the State who would not like to see the tax removed It hangs as a millstone abut their necks f In the last Congress a bill authoriz ing the removal of this tax was passedIa cLmous vote When it reached the Sen ateitwas killed Each member of the Lower Hpuseof Congress knew that he would have touexplain his vote to the farmers if he voted to retain the tax and as a plausible explanation would have been impossible a unani mous vote to remove the tax resulted In the Upper House it was different The Senators would have no accpunt ingtO thakthey would have no au diences of farmers to face therefore the matter gave them no concern and theVbill was killed Had these Senators owed their elections to a direct vote of the people nobody doubts that the bill would have been passed in a gallop iThe United States Senate is the lawmaking body of the classes it is the terriblclub that hangs over the head of every farmer in the land the miser able blighting shadow that falls across the pathway of eyery little business man and Jabore in AmerIca Will

the crawling loathsome reptile mother protects her young and places herself a hideous hissing thing in the path of every creature man or beast that vouldharm her offspring She giyes up her life in an effort to protect the little infant serpents And thus the most loathsome and ugliest oiI all of earths creatures becomes beauti ful in her devotion We commend the above story to the boys and girls who

reads thiaatrya has been disobedient toward mother let him or her ask the mother to forgive Go to her and say I have done wrong I will do so no more Your devotion istworth more to me than all the

decision to leave Senator Foraker off the list indicates clearly that the Taft manag rsave grasped the nettle with a firm hand They have selected the particular horn of the dilemma which presented the least apparent dif ficulty and they are prepared to abide by the choice they have made It was recognized as impossible to demand of Senator Foraker that his remarks be submitted to the State Com

beautiful smile on his countenance The surgeons bowed their heads Tears streamed from the eyes of the white clad nurses on either side of the bed The yellow radiance of the sun shone softly in the

being hanged He tells his story as follows I was hung as a Confederate spy at Fort Barrancas Fla 1 spent four minutes physically and spiritually between earth and heaven Then a Yankee ser geant believing me to be the wrong man cut me down My first sensation when the board was kicked from under my feet was that a steam boiler inside me was about to explode Every vein and blood vessel to and from my heart seemed charged with ail oppressive fulness that must find an avenue of escape The nervous system throughout its length was tingling with a painful ricking sensation the like of which f felt before or since Then followed the yolcanohadrelief r and the pain gave w to a pleasurable feeling one very desirable could it be secured without death With this sensation a light broke in upon my sight a light of milky Whlte ne sYet strange to say so transparent that it was easier to pierce with the e re than the light of day Then came i ito my mouth a taste of sweetness thel like of which I have never since And I felt myself moving on with a consciousness J of leaving everything be hindv Then I heard the sweetest of music and it seemed that morertitan a thousand harps led in ac companied bv myriads of voices And the sensation of coming back to life after I had been cut down was just as painful as the first feeling of hanging It was acute torture Every nerve aeemed to have a pain of its own My nose and fingers were seats of the most excruciating agony In half an hour the pain was all gone but I would not go through the experience again for the wealth of the Indies Why James

with his left haid and shaking his right fist spite fully at Miss Cullens spotted bull ter rier crouched threateningly at the foot of the tree And eying him with calm i und patient persistence Uncle Simeon Yates peeked over the picket fence his smooth rotund face looking like the full moon Just rising above the horizon line the tears coursing down his cheeks his mouth preoccupied with an aggravating grin and lifs fat side 5h like a cup of jelly Jn an earth IiquakebWhat in the world snorted Sim vt eon ripping a paling off the fence in the excessiveness of his hilarity what In the world

better than to stand there and laugh the palms off of a poor lone womans fence He turned to shake his fist but lost 0Ills balance and fell Desperately he lutched at a limb and pulled himself up again out of the very teeth of tbe growling terrier Then he glanced yin dictively toward Simeon but Simeon jivas moving away Hey Brother Yates he yelled eI t SQUATTED IiIXE A HAIiF FED TURRET QGBBIiTS-

deacon Prince Albert and plug hat struck the ground In al confused heap There was a terrified scrambling a muffled growl Then something long and lank with flowing hair and pro finding eyes dashed straight for Uncle Simeon Crash A section Qf the pal Ing fence gave way and up the street the deacon dashed pale of countenance bare of head Miss Cullens bull terrier clinging grimly to his coattail

spasm of mirth from which hq had notentire1rr recovered when bef reacted Miss Cullens door His knock was answered by the lady in person She was of uncertain age inclined to be angular and decidedly deaf Good afternoon Miss Cullen s out ed Simeoii1was wonderin have you seen Deacon Partridge t day mum Miss Cullens brow darkened No I havent she said He promised to help me beat a carpet but he hasnt come Well mum giggled SJmeonl if youll call your dpg I believe youll se cure circumstantial evidence of the deacons iotllntentions But Miss Cullens deafness prevented her catching the drift of the remark Anyway she replied aggrieved it seems tome that if a man wont keep his promise to avroinnn before lie mar ries her he wont do it afterward Thats so mum answered Simeon But if youll let me help you Ill be glad to dgit Ive just got to beat va carpet or soniethin to keep my mind off that mnns sprintin abilities or be a physical wreck IllI Then cone right in Mr Yates said flingly himbeaming s upon appreciate yourklnducss very mt h1 Dont mention It mum gurgled Simeon Now if youll just show one Yell first sh said gazing Into his eyes affectionately theres a feat er bed upstairs if youll throw It out the winder for me Up the steps int Simeon but whei he reached the top he heard some one knocking on the front door Glancing out the window he saw Deacon Par tridge on the stoop below gazing un easily about and acting more nervous than otherwise Catching up the feather bed Slmeon pushed It through the opening and chuckled to himself as he wit fall squarely upon the deacons head and bear him to the giaund In another instant a heavy mattress had follow edit Now Miss 3ullen observed Sime on when he had gone downstairsragoln and opened tile door if youll com and sit oji the stoop and rest mumf IH He noticed with satisfaction- that something was wriggling sdesper tntely under the feathers Oh you are scT considerate Mr Yates chlrrirpcd Miss Cullen follow ing him out of dopis Some men are so thoughtless of others comfort Now do YO Tcnow she added setting herself oIlJ step with herback toward the bedclothes 1 believe that the deacon wouldnt cire how bard his wIfe worked just so he had good clothes to wear and plenty of nice things to eat The feather bed was taoved convulsively Well Mss Cuilen began Simeon HIve always tbovight that If I bad a wife Fd treat her like a wife ought to be treated Miss Cullen coughed softly and drop ped her eyes Mr Yates she asked l presently glancing at him bashfully why dont you get married I thought I could gettt right IIfof a woman Simeon starunjered a wonSan like you now The bed and mtfttress fairly rose in the air Simeon turned his head and coughed violently IiSSCUI1lenyou would make you a good wife Shedropped h sparkling eyes ground ward The feather bed shook with renewed en ergy But I thought you said that you and the deacon began Simeon Oh no Miss Cullen interrupted I only meant that the deacon wanted to marry meTby Mr Yates youve no Idee how that persistin old hypocrite hat pestered me The bedding experienced a sudden terrific upheaval Simeon acted as if he were going to explode Why if I ball let him I honestly believe he would have got down on1 his knees I know I mint as young as I once was but I reckon 1 know a man when I see one Now you Simeon Again she glanced at him shyly uWell then said Simeon his eyes twinkling if l should ask you to marry nie would you promise to 6h Simeon blushed Miss Cullen softly IIyes I believe I would SineonIWould you promise continued Sim eon pinching himself to keep from latighing aloud when he saw something under the feather bed behaving sca- ndalouslyvould you promise to sick your dog on that old id jit of n Dea con Partridge if he hangs around here any more No sooner had he uttered those words than from the midst of that pile of household necessities there came the visible indications ofa terrific storm followed by the subdued but unmistakable sound of ripping clothr and the next second feather bed mat tress and deacon arose in concert and there in the astonished presence of Miss Cullen stood Partridge his arms and legs tangled in the environments JIeadandcoating of downy feathers Feathers protruded trom his eyes feathers vi brated on end of his nose feath tipsIly breathe for feathers Pooh pooh pooh he puffed bloC ing great bunches of feathers from his mouth 4 Abchoo Ahcheoo be sneezed The tears were running down his face making the feathers stick the closer to his scarlet cheeks Miss Cullen sprang to her feet pressed her trembling hands to her eyes and shrieked Well well said Simeon regarding him with overmastering hilarity Well well this Is the first time I ever see a partridge rtmnln around half picked Say whydont you go out be hind the barn and singe yourself The deacon could not speak Ifle could not do anything but open and shut his mouth like a chicken with the gapes and goHCut cut cut Why be thinks hes an old setting hen exclaimed Simeon eying hIm wonderingly Shouldnt wonder but hell be ascratchln up your flower bed next Miss he added to the Cullenta why dont you fly up in a to roost again II didnt come here to tie laughed at whimpered Partridge extricating himself from the ticking and nearly crying with Indignation HI came here to call on Miss Cullen Huh replied Simeon pressing his hands against his quivering sides and regarding the other with austerity Huh dye reckon Miss Cullen hasnt anything to do but to entertain oyster riches Why dont you run away sbme wheres and stick your head in the sand I tell you I aint goln to stand here and be insulted by no squatty old hip pypotamouse shrilled the deacon an grily jRuther be a hipPypdtamousethan to be a featherweight snapped Simeon uIf youre so blame brave why dont WhyIdanythingliiiers aint all grown out rm a man of peace Brother Yates replied Partridge meekly HIm an elder In the church and I dont want to get mad and I dont want to swear May be that youre t111nln to an angel retorted SJmeon doubtfully but you look to me more like a dominick r thats too thin to bile and too tough to fry Anyway you ought to know that Miss Cullens front yard aint no place for a poultry show Got as much right hereas you have you old biled lobster screamed the fleacon wrathCUlly Aint I Miss Cullen iVWeIl really Mr Partridge snick cred Miss Cullen looking happily iat ntnow thatIrthat Simeon and me are engaged of course You see Brother Partridge ex claimed Simeon the lady has decided flint she Isnt bankerln to marry any body that has a mania for breakln limbs off of trees smashin down fences and rlppin open feather beds Besides theres the dog Partridge glanced around uneasily You know deacon when a dog once gets a taste of a boner 1 certainly extend my congratulations sneered ithe dtyicon scowling at Simeon and I hope I havent In truded Dontmentlon It Brother Partridge Simeon grinned But now If youll step Into the house and let us finish plckln you

tribe of tbe Pueblo Indians is ah Institution regarding which those most concerned have least to say When the parents a girl find It expedient for Iget married they look up an availableI and negotiate with hiS parents After the matter has been arranged tbe principals are notified The girl goes to the home of the grooms parents and grinds corn for them for three weeks while the groom makes a kind of sash for the bride Then one morning at sunrise they both bathe their heads in cold water which the ceremony There have completesI stances of the grooms through the peiformance which has then uroceeded without him and been accounted valid and several weeks later he has yielded and had his head bathed The Navajo ceremopy is much more elaborpte and impressive but then theI Navajo girls are much nicer The reg ular tariff on a Navajo girl entering the port of matrinjofiy for the first time is twelve horses On the Second occasion the tax is nine horses while subsequent entries are free This is not purchase money but Is merely a tribute of respeat to a motherinlaw arid a token of apprecia tion of the care and expense involved In bearing and rearing the lady a recognition not unworthy of considera tion by civilized grooms On the other band mid deserving of great condem- natIon Is that law of many tribes unwritten but of much sanctity that a man and Ills motherinlaw shall never meet

Kentucky State Fairgrounds where tie 1908 annual exhibi tion will be held is easily one of the most modernly arranged and best equipped In the country From ana s thetlc point of view the graceful lines of the buildings harmonize with the surrounding topography The car lines will extend into the grounds so that one may step directly from the car to the entrance of the Fair An Imposing archway will extend over the miin driveway at the entrance The driveway 100 reet in width leads di rectly to the Livestock Pavilion Grass plots with rows of trees ill subdivide this driveway and lines of hedges will border it on the sides In frontcf the Livestock Pavilion will oe an attrac tive fountain located In the center of large flower bed design The racetrack and grandstand are located in the eastern part of the grounds some 600 fet from the pavil Ion The surface of the track has been finished with exceptionally fine clay The stables and cooling shed for horses are located just south of the track The architecture of alP the buildings will be along the lines of the Spanish Mission style with white sides and red tile roofs This class and style of architecture will harmon ize with the undulating grounds and graceful driveways which are bordered with hedges and plants and give it a most pleasing appearance 100000 LIVESTOCK PAVILION It is with much pride that the State Fair management will qpen to the public in September what everyIreason to believe is the finest livestock pavilion mther world While somewhat similar to other great State Fair pavilions it is quite

connectionA fifteenfoot promenade will extend entirely around the outside of the arena The main entrances are arranged in four large towers one at each cor ner of the building to give an abundance of space for entrance and exit The construction is of the most per manent character being largely con crete and steel All horses and cattle tWill be exhibited in this building a great improvement over

rattling nojse not unlike the sound of a f tiny bell After watching for some minutes he saw a huge blacksnake of the rater variety coming slowly towards the spring with his tail tightly wrapped around an empty oyster can Reaching the spring it moved around slowly until the can w sadjusted under the drip When his snakeship caught water enough it moved slowly away with the bees following at asafe dis t tance The snake went toihe foot of the hill where there was a large rock in the top of which was a depression Into this the snake mptied his can and immediately started for the spring again The bee hunter says that the snake made seyeral until there was pantrfullthe snake unwound its tail horn the can reared its head up two feet or- more made a hissing noise and imifje diately there came from beneath the rock a dozen or more little snakes r blackand shining which at or ce made for the water They drank rolled and j gamboled and seemed to enjoy lifj to i the veiy fullest Sextent Tfte mother-

is possible should have a creamery of this general type unless the field is already occu pled by ian institution which answers the sam purpose ALFALFA CULTURE Where one wishes to make a trial of growing alfalfa the pleqe of land on which nus to be grown should be put in tlie best of tilth as for a big crop of corn and enriched with several loads of stable manure per acre Alfalfa is like most other members of the clover family in that it does not do well on poorly drained or wet soil For late summer sowing the seed shouldbe put in not later than Aug4 15 at the rate of twenty to thirty pounds per acre The legume will gain a foothold the more readily if some soil from an old alfalfa field r is put on the land with the ma nure with which it is fertilised Where no such field is within reach soil from a spot where sweet clover lias grown will answer the same purpose The advantage of late summer sowing of alfalfa lies In the fact that most of the weed seeds in the spill have in all probability been germinated and willIstroyed while those that db sprout be held u check by the dry weather which usually prevails at ijiat time of year One of the greatest handicaps in getting a start In alfalfa in some localities Is the pest of grasshoppers which ar so destructive to the young alfalfa plants in some ons that It Is useless to attempt starting a patch unless poultry has a free run or the arm j THE WORK OFjiAIL Oneot the most destructive hall storms that ever visited the northern states passed over southwestern Wis consin northeastern Iowa and southeastern r inifesota about the middle of June the path of the storm seems to have been about 150 miles long and from eight to eighteen miles wide InI this area the destruction was terrific hailstones ranging In size from peas to goose ieggs falling jor a period of twenty minutes As will be readily understood this meant deathvto young stock of all kinds as well as to ducks geese turkeys and chickeus One who visited fields of corn and oats hit by this storm stated that vegetation of all kinds was ground to pulp and had been swept clean from the fields by the water which fell at the same time Bo finely was vegetation macerated that much of it was blown away like chaff by the wind In places in the track of this storm orchards were totally ruined tndifbreBt trees stripped of all their leaves and small branches while shin gles wqre sput to pieces and knocked off and siding badly cracked and battered r I It is said that leaves of tansy placed In the food cupboards will drive ants away Cellars and cesspools may be

exploration and inspection in China and Manchuria has brought back sam pIes of an upland rice which thrives in Manchuria under about the same con dltldns which prevail In the central portions of the corn belt The new find will be given a thorough testing under American conditions and a hope is entertained by the department om daIs that its introduction will prove as successful and profitable a venture as was the ease with tho durum or macaroni beat Durum wheat a variety Introduced by the United States department of agriculture some ten years abc is es pe lally adapted to the semiarid conditions to be found In the states west of the Mississippi river in sections where the rainfall Is twenty Inches per annum or less It is stated that if grown where the rainfall exceeds twenty inches or where irrigation has to be resorted to the wheat produced instead of being hard which the Latin name curum means Is a poor and oft low grade wheat Owing to this fact this variety is not greatly curtailing the growing of other varieties of wheat but is occupying lands which are not devoted to growing any tilled crop f The Norwegian hay box or fireless cooker has lately been put on the market

be ready for tire table In throe or four hours depending somewhat upon the variety One can make the cooker for a good deal less than the price named by taking a box of the desired size padding the bottom si esnnd ends with hay or other close fibered stuff and the cover with a mat of the same stuff that will serve to check a raiJidtion of the heat l There are some sections of the country where pati are grown where there Is considerable complaint from damage by the stalk borer a worm that enters the plant at a Joint near the ground upIins can greatly weakened and In many cases breaks over king Incapacitated for the proper nourishment of the pIn It bears Since the damage done by the Worm la entirely internal andIt remains out of sight until it seeks a new feeding place there is no effective way of fighting it The only preventive and that but partial and Indirect Is to so rotate the crops on the land with the cleanest possible cultivation that the we ds In which the worm breeds and feeds may be reduced to a mini mum Among the common weeds on which the stalk borer works are pig Weed smartweed and lambs quarter Among cultivated plants which It at tacks are tomato and potato vInes Its damage to the latter being often con siderable Lubricating oil Is cheaper than new machinery or machine repairs and axle grease than horseflesh corn and oats Many In practice seem to show that they are oblivious of this fact Turnips will attain a good size if the seed is sown about the last week in July though we have had success with them sowing the seed a week or ten days later than this when conditions sere favorable In spite of the precautions that are taken in the matter of combating the work of numerous insect pests esti mates made by the department of agri culture plifqe the

with a view to preserv ing them was taken Up before the beginning of the Christian era while in the centuries immediately following there was systematic planting of trees on watersheds to prevent destruction by floods The state forests of Japan produce at present about 2000000000 cubic feet of timber each year There are some men who may still be skeptical of the worth of the cream separator as an adjunct of the dairy but the fact remains that the use of the machine enables one to get from 10 to 25 per cent more of butter fat out of milk than Is possible with the gravity or hand skimming system While the young calf should be given a start on whole new milk it is conceded that a fat forming ration can be fed which is vastly more economical than butter fat worth from 20 to 25 cents a pound We recently noted the case of the death of quite a flock of hens where the primary difficulty seemed to be a lack of green food The chickens in question were fed the scraps from a boarding house which contained variety enough but were provided with ho green food When chickens run at hlarge it is worth while noting how much of their time they will spend at pasturethat is eating green stuff
