THURMAH t The Sun congratulates the Democra cyfthe Eleventh Judicial District up on the renomination of Judge I lij- Thurman for Circuit Judge The nom ination is the equivalent of election therefore it means that the people Qf the district are to have upon the judi cial bench for another six years an- r able and impartial judge a man who is eminently qualified to discharge the duties of the office in a manner that will be creditable to himself and to the people he represents In inany respects Judge Thurman is an unusual man He is gifted in many ways Intellectually lie has few supe t t riors He is learned the law and he unravels tangles and solves compli cated problems with the utmost ease But the prettiest of all of the elements I in Judge Thurraan and the One which has made him the best Circuit Judge in Kentucky is his eye1 temper He is cool when other men are excited he isVdeliberate when others are flounder J ngi he pursues the eyen tenor of his way and hews to the line when others are in furious erupliah and hew wide of the line He can not bear malice he despises no man he knows not how to balj He has made a great circle of friends who really delight to honor him rt J DIPHTHERIA I Another circular from the State Board of nealth is printed in this issue I Xf The Sun The Prevention of Diph theia is discussed by Dr McCormack Comment upon the circular is unnecessary fIt is logical in every sentence is sound reason in every paragraph good advice We appeal to every fath er and mother to read it1eadit for your childrens sake readit for the sake of other peoples children Thousands of little lives are annually sacrificed to diphtheria It is one of the most malignant and dangerous diseases known to the medical world and one of the most infectious Epidemics of diphtheria are due to carelessness and a failure to heed the attending phys Cians instructions It requires only a littl care to check the disease In the circular printed in this issue of The Sun Df McCormack tells how the scourge may be stamped out We are ot simply asked to obey these in striictions but we are commanded to obey them If we disregard the in j structions we violate the law The of

unusual prevalence of diphtheria in many sections of the State makes it the duty of this Board to again call at tention to the best known methods of OfJriSable disease bei rig easily limited to the first case or cases When it gets away from the primary cases and makes its escape upon the community somebody is to blame The sooner we accept this as a sanitary maxim the sooner we shall begin to do our duties as individu alsand communities 2 On account of its frequency and fatality tms disease is of far more im portance to the people of Kentucky than snjallpox yellow fever or cholera 3 When a childhas sore throat and especially if diphtheria is in the neigh borh od it should be immediately sep arated irom other children until a competent physician has seen it and decided whether or not it is affected with a contagious disease 4 If diphtheria strictly isolate the case at once in an upstairs room if possible and as disconnected as practi cable from the living and sleeping apartments of other children No one except the physician and nurse should enter the room and they should take every precaution not to carry the infec tion to others 5 The board uigthe a- ticuseofa standard antitoxin in at least 3000unit doses as soon as the disease is recognized or seriously sus pected and that this dose should be re peated or doubled within twelve hours unless marked improvement has taken place and it recommends that immunizing doses of 500 units be used for all children and especially for all inex perienced relatives acting as nurSes who have been seriously exposed 6V Placard the house and keep all ot careofcgo chilcizen are away from it Notify the health officer of the town or county within twentyfour hours as the lawj requires and he will cooperate with the physi cian and family to keep the disease from spreadingx 7 The from the mouth and nose especially contain the germs of Whit disease should be re ceived on cloths and burned and other discharges shoouldbe disinfected and all refuse sick thorn burned All utensils used in feeding the sick should be washed separately from other dishes land should rpmam some time in boiling water The South WICarmockina pistol auel on the streets of Nashville the other day and instantly thei Northern newspapers raised their e tonal hands in horror over what they lesneSSjofBnls of ignorant and trimmal men know as the Night Riders have dcI stroyea some property taken human life and committed other outrages in a few of the isolated provuices of Ken tucky and Tennessee The Northern press blames it all to the lawlessness of the South not withstand that all the official powers of those two states from the governorsI down were promptly to put an end to the depredations and capture and punish the guilty If a brute or a negro is lynched in IISouthernWhenever a crime of any special pubs lie interest is committed anywhere nei low Mason and Dixons line the whole South is held up as an awful of benighted unregenerate exampleI pal society and placarded every1nlter on a hunt for a human target The South has been libeled and ma ligned by the Northern press long enoug and more columns of editorial rot hive been published about the lawlessness of the South then would be re juired to recount the degenerate and riminal escapades of high society rom Pittsburg north for the last twent yea 8and thats saying a heap Wh n you recall the shooting down of St nford White by Thaw in the very heart of New York City the Hams I lLk jit f j y4 7 i 8 Disinfect all bed and body clothing and other like thiqgs as soon as removed by immersion for at least six hours in a solution of chloride of lime tour ounces tp the gallon of water They may then be wrung out and put in the wash Remember however that no disinfectant in the occupied sick room can do away with tile necessity for abundant fresh air and sunlight 9 The isolation of the patient should continue for ten days after all trace of the disease has disappeared and until he has had a disinfecting bath and been clad in garments which have not been in the sick room No person from a house where there is diphtheria should be permitted to go into public assem blies and no child from a house where this disease has prevailed should be al lowed to attend school without acer tificate from the health officer that it is safe to do so 10 After complete recovery or death always thoroughly disintect the room and its contents preferably with nascent formaldehyde or where this is not available by burning three pounds of sulphur moistened with alcohol for each 1000 cubic feet of space previously stopping all openings and dampening the floor bedding and cloth ing and leaving the room tightly closed for twelve hours The room should then be thoroughly ventilated and all ledges woodwork etc washed with strong soap and rinsed with a disinfecting solution 11 In ease of death the body should be wrapped in a sheet saturated in a disinfecting solution and buried without public service In giving notice of death newspapers should state that it was from diphtheria and that children and those having the care of children should not attend the funeral t 12 To be effective the precautions herein suggested should be rigidly observed Imperfect isolation and disin fection are worse than useless giving rise only to a false arid misleading sense of security otIfall short of their duty if they fail to do so jt14 Arrangements have been per fected under which county or city boards of health may procure Lederles antitoxin at wholesale prices

re ten fold the danger lurks to life and property than in the loneliest AndImenace to the Country than do the negro lynchings of the South thINorthern editors possess not even pfrn itive intelligence There are districts in the South where the negroes outnumber the whites two hundred to one and the back country Southern negro is the most benighted human being on the continent without exception You can go into the Black belts of any State in the South and find more inhabitants to a square mile who resemble mere anitnals in their social and material activities than you can find in the Bronx t c ZooAnd yet taking it all in all through out the South the blacks do not pro duce SB much trouble and lawlessness as do the criminal and immoral elements in Pittsburg Chicago and New York The Northern newspapers that through ignorance or design persist ently seek to instill in the public mind that there is such a thing as a Lawless South do harm not alone to the South but to the Republic as well The war is over these forty years and more Mr Northern Editor The South with its wounds healed and forgotten andmanfully and patiently bearing its burden represented by millions of an indolent ignorant and improvident race has risen into imperial propor tions and has made and is npw making gigantic strides along educational and industrial lines To teach the world that in the South a greate proportion of the inhabitants are lawless than in other sections of the country is to write a base lie into the nations his tory And yet the Northern press much of it debauched and debased by Northern commercialism thus decrys and assails the South when it might with far greater profit to the public expose and denounce the great lawless money interests of the North w ich it so servilely represents

nature responded to the tuneful harp of David the sweet singer of Israel I entered the chapel of Ecclesiastes where the voice of the preacher was Jjeard and into the con servatory of Sharon and the Lily of the Valleys sweet scented spices filled and perfumed my life I entered die busi ness office of Proverbs then into the observatory room of the prophets where I saw telescopes of various sizes some pointing to faroff events but all con centrated iioon the bright and morning star which was to rise above the moon lit hills of Judea for our salvation I entered the audience room of the King of Kings and caught a vision of His glory from the standpoint of Matthew Mark Luke and John passed into the Acts of the Apostles where the Holy Spirit was doing his office work in the formation ot the

cemetery He was not notified of tile burial by her spinster cousin her only relative who gave as a reason that it would be better he should not be pros nt But as soon as he learned of the fact he went to the cemetery and stood uncovered ly her grave tears rolling down his cheeks He had brought som plants to set out whore their flowers thQ next spring would hang over her grave Some one hal been there be fore him on a similar errand Flowers were strewn over the mound so fresh that they must have been cut but u rewj hours He spoke of these flowers to her cousin and asked if she had placed them She had not and seemed surprised He was troubled It is singular that we should be jealous in case of the dead Every Sunda afternoon he went to the cemetery anti every time he found fresh flowers ion the grave They must have been plaeejl there in the morning The next Sunday be went at dawn and waited and waited till 10 oclock for this rival forthe dead At that hour n y6ung girl came and strewed flow4rr- on the grave A great relief came him He advanced and addressed hi fellow mourner She had been a friend of his former fiancee Every Sunday morning these two met at the grave of one for whom they had a common Jove He grew to look forward to the meeting not so much af a melancholy event as a reunion with one who was filling the void In his heart a void which if tilled at all car be done only by a living person But this girl of llesh and blood was from the first constrained and her constraint had grown 0 her When they met her- eyeswould bilighten hut looking down on her friojids grave she seemed moved by some Inward emotion When wInter came their visits were omitted by mutual consent till the spring should come Their meetings were not as1 before on Sunday morn Ings but on Sunday afternoons and wer6 often prolonged until Jatb In the evening It was plensnter to sit by n warm fireplace than stand out In the cold cemetery where the winds shrieked through the leatless branches He besought her to marry him She refused From the expression on her face his words seemed to have had tile effect rather of clods falling on a coffin than ota great comfort When the crocuses were springing up she proposed that they go again to UK cemetery He sighed and consented but at the appointed time he made ex cuses She Vald though with evident reluctance that she would go alone So he

grave he had strewn flowers his lost love was comingSShe advanced with a slow step a serious expression on her face Thero was nothing ghostly about her On the contrary she was plainly mortal What astonished her betrothed most was that her friend appeared in no way Kiirprlsed at this return from the dead to the quirk This is a wrong I have done you said tle returned one and 1 regret It but II laid the plan long ago and re solved that I would carry It out When we parted I began a brooding over your words that you would weep over my grave Then I became possess d with a desire to learn how long you would weep for me or It you would be faithful to my memory I gave out that I was dead and caused an empty box to be burled here More than that I arranged for hern pointing to his fellow mourner to come here to meet you I have lejirned what It Is better I should not knowthat the dead have no place in the hearts of the living that cannot be easily occupied by another These were the

understood by every per son for the ear is one of the most delicate organs we have and the risk of doing permanent damage Is ever present According to one of the best known aurists In New York the safest method pf daily cleaning Is to put a bit of old thin linen such as a handkerchief ovBrthe tip of the little finger and in se t this into the orifice The cloth sh uld not go deeper than the finger tirs can reach In this way there will be no chance of hurting the hearing Tiile this is undoubtedly a safe scientific way the average woman will find a hairpin more to her liking Under no circumstances should a stick or other pointed implement be used but the loop at the end of a hairpin pre vents Its doing harm unless It is thrust in so hard as to cause pain One Is not likely to do this To wash the Interior wet a bit of linen and rubon some soap then wrap this with one thickness only about the pin loop and put It gently into the ear The cloth may be turned slowly and then at once removed and a fresh part taken to repeat the operation Rinse by wetting tfitf cloth another time in warm whiterSCold water should never be used in cleaning the ears It will tend to harden the wax

on by the Sionx There was a treaty of peace between the white man and the red but it had been felt for three months past that the latter were get ting ready to break it The sergeant had gene out without instructions what to do in case he was attacked When he found that he was menaced he did what a veteran captain would have done He called in his men scattered for two miles along the line and threw up defehses and prepared to stand off the Indians until a courier could get through to tie fort and return with in structions for Sergeant Brady unfortunatelY adjutant had it in for veteran who had put In twenty years on the frontier and knew all the tricks of the red men Three or four things had occurred to prove that the adjutant was after the sergeants stripes and for weeks the latter had walked the chalk line to de feat the formers plans When the courier dodged the gathering warriors and reached the fort and reported the commandant was for directing the squad to come in at once but it was the adjutant who said Sergeant Brady simply reports see Ing signs and being fired on It is some of the young bucks giving him a scare Hes gut rattled over nothing We have no reports of outbreaks He has shown his bravery a score of times but perhaps he has made too much of this occasion theIcommandant twill order him to hold his position for thre days and then report again I win also caution him not to provoke hostilities It was a tight squeak for the courier to return to the little comtnaud The3 Indians were ereeping up Qn all sides and boasting that there should be a wipeout Already there had come a demand for Surrender and hostile bul lets had come singing over the defenses The read his orders and then assembled hlsmedread them aloud and said Its the hand of the adjutant me boys

hostilities with 200 copper faced heathen waiting for our scalps Seventy or eighty Indians who had crept as near as they could find cover rose up atp signal and rushed the breastwork jof brush and limbs and bowlders The seven concentrated their fire cm the rush and broke it Twenty redskins lay dead when the living retreated Take a long breath and do a little smiling me OYS said the sergeant as

Philadelphia 9 fulllaalittle at the top where sameJthing only m a different way The goods must be on hand the prices must be right the service must be commendable the trading t must be square the kind of square that has four equal sides and four right angles Every successful store has its trademark whether sl j the merchant knows it or not Its advertising and its service have created a public sentiment in its favor whiCh neither reverses nor fire nor time caD obliter ate Nine times out of ten this trademark is the F stores biggest asset Much of the ordinary store advertising is a hand ttomouth sort of business ah effort to make tomorrows sales equal to todays or yesterdays and this is just as true of the department store as of the small r er shop The advertisement appears in the morningI and the merchant figures out the net results in tIle evening It is true that the bargain advertisement4 of oday is of little if any use next week It is for r gotten in twentyfour hours t but if the store makes i a feature of genuine bargains then each bargain sale helps to advertise the bargain department The advertising ought to be done in such a way as to permanentiy advertise the department as well as to emphasize the bargains of the day J Dont go at it as if you were advertising an 1 Iauction sale As I said at the outset your store is the seed in thee soil the advertising is the rain and the sunshine Inexperienced Advertisers dig up the seed very evening to see if it is growing or pull up the young plant by the roots because it didnt bear fruit or flowers the first week i It is safe Jo say that not more than onethird of twoxJ thirds are looking fpr quality and style The very fact ffhatthe goods are offered at bargain prices leaves the impression that there is something wrong with the quality or that the style isr a season behind Good advertising should enable a merchant to sell 20 oats at 25 instead of 25 coats at 1250 m other w rds it should create confidence rather than doubt As in r stocks and bonds the securities quoted above par are always more desirable in the thought of the investing public than are those quoted at a discount Advertising is a tremendous force which in action contradicts all mechanical laws The circumference 1 thessameaJ I Make your advertising continuous This i the first great secret of success Copy and medium and J- f

took possession of the first section in the rear Pullman and proceeded to make herself comfortable- It Wins Harriet Stillwell runaway spinster known to tier Vassar mates and to a few othersas Harry the committingherself long and sidesbMy first celebration of Thanksgiv Ing alone she confided to her mirror intending the thought to be a happy one but instead she found it accom panied by ji sigh This certainly was not logical and Harriet had prided herself Until recently on her logic Settling back in her seat animated by a grim determination to enjoy her self she turned her attention to the scene outside The train westbound on the Rio Grande road stood before the Union station in Denver and the first thing her eyes lighted on was n pair of elks antlers branching majestically over n load ot express trundled across the pavement Oh1 she exclaimed aloud what beauties I- She pressed her face against the pane to watch them out of sight promised me a pair two years ago bu well jits quite like a man to forget But t was not like Ray and she knew ft Ray hadnever forgotten n promise to her She thought of a dozen which be hod fulfilled to the letter but how inconsiderate of memory to choosei this ofall days wherein to distract her attention when she had been anticipat ing eagerly her first sight of the Royal gorge Then she fell to wondering how many Quests Ray was having to dinner that day In his bachelor apartments In the section opposite the porter was stowing away two suit cases sus plclou ly new In appearance Behind him stood the owners also suspicIous- ly newt as to dress The lady who was no longer young wore a suit of gray n gray hat with a white veil and grit gloves The man also wore graydar graS rom the rim of hair visible be neath his hat to his brand new fash i lonably cut trousers The porter straightened himself clos ing his hand overasUyerrIecewith a Thank you sah thank you and 1 tired grinning Presently the Pulln a t conductor sauntered in pulled his mus

open delight which the r 7111 tI Hiff FIRST CEIEBRATIOH OF THANKSOIV 1NO 4LONE couple opposite took in their own sod ety maintaining that ten years of wed tied life alone give married people the right to devote themselves to each other in public And at the end of ten years they never care tol thought this runaway spinster with a glance ag scornful as her soft eyes could express s How glad I am that I have escaped a wedding trip With this Thanksgiving declaration her Ups set themselves firmly but her eyes grew wistful as she fell again into a reverie going over certain rea sons she had gone over so times before perfectly logical budshe was not at all sure they satisfied her That was the trouble if only she could be surer Sleeper tickets please demanded the conductor Sh J roduced her ttcttct at the same time asking Is the upper berth of this section taken conductor Yes maam by a gentleman Arathank you Then the murmur caught only by the window hope he sees fit to stay in the sinok all day 1ut he did not see fit Half day Colorado Springs he deserted smolter he and came swinging down the aIsle toward his lawful seat In section 1 while Harriet glancing back gasp t t4 iJ ir w1 IIIit ed halt in dismay half in delight wholly astonished But hewas not looking at her His eyes were on the couple across the aisle and a faint smile flashed across his fine face a smile of sympathy and not derision she noticed Then he reached section 1 rind removed his hat HI beg Harry Stillwell by the gods immortal tFor an Instant they looked at each in silence Harriets eyes before she got them under controlsparkling and dancing o erthls unexpected meeting Then she laughed outright Well Ray dont you think we Better shake hands Perhaps He held his out gravely and to Harriet the knowledge came with a shock of wonder that the fac she could read so well was not ex pressing unalloyed pleasure at sight of j her I thought you were at home Har ry he remarked resting his elbow on his knee 1 You thought I was at home echoed Harriet b1n JlfWhy Raymond Merrill W you been all this time Her eyes were under control nqw4 Ray leaned over and rubbed at a spot on the window Lets see I went to North Woods InAugust wasnt it Yes It was directly after the evening when they had their last talk such a logical talkon her part she considered It She nodded and allow ed a distant view of Pikes Peak to absorb her attention l1rve nut been back since then scarcely heard from home in fact Then he did not even suspect she was running away from him She felt un accountably defrauded Ive been huntingBypair of ells antlers back to you from Denver If you remember 1 promised them to you long ago Ohtplatform They are ibeautles Thank getnAgain she was struck by his strange reserve Three month ago his face would have glowed over her enthusi astic thanks thelHe was speaking low and she was smiling and nulling at her gray muff Quite illogically the s ght brought a lump Into Harriets threat They were silly of course to act that waybut- if only Ray would be his old selI Then she strangled the thought and took a fresh hold of berjself And you Ray was saying flipkrambling too Cant say Ive hunted but Irefishcd and ridden and explored from northern Montana to here What for- Harriets chin went up and her tone queerni nately I can control the price of a few railroad tickets Being past twen candand I love my Independence j The last assertion es her Invol untarily She stopped abruptly and bit her lip But Ray did not wince He merely looked Jt her Intently Harry I believe I can with you in that Independence busi ness Ive been enjoying a taste of In dependence myself for the first time In seven years I Harriet looked her amazement Raymond Merrill was a very model of in dependence to his friends independent of family ties independent in income In health in habits W at do you meanshE inquired directly Ray did not reply at once He was looking across the aisle again The bride had bent her lace over a book which she held upside down while a pair of bearded lips almost against her cheek were whispering Unexpectedly Ray turned and smiled Into Harriets eyes with a flash of his old self Disgusting isnt 1t7 she said hast lly to cover a sudden helpless confu throbbingjrather enjoy watching them re II Ray quietly That c looks as he expected to attend a per petual Thanksgiving service and she well It looks as though she was satis fied Watch them on a journey ten years from now mid see if shes satisfied Harriet retorted furious at herself for giving the conversation such a tactless turn J Well what would you eett chal leased Ray That novel lwlIl be right side up I hope so coolly I should ex pect a companionship of ten years to rob the situation of some of its nov elty And the groom In cigar smoke and a newspaper will occupy the smoker Doubtless But he may be as sln merely her lover as he is today Harriet shrugged her shoplders and gazed back at Colorado Springs which they were leaving behind them 6SO long as its Thanksgiving day lets be happy and thankful and not disagree Her laugh was a trifle forcedAnother bow and another Just as you choose Harry She moved uneasily striving in vain td break through the barrier his man ner had erected against her He waj perplexing bewildering lightlyerlapYoQCurious that youd been enjoying your independence for the first time in seven rears Ray raised his head with a mirth i 1I4 t J w less smile and looked at her Then he hesitated studying the people in the opposite section I never intended to 11shouldHe stopped Impulsively Harriet filled in the pause 1 thought you did not appear glad to see Ilel No he returned frmllyItI was otam not glad I remember al YiIdenceso from being among mine that t intend tp leave the train at

APARTMENTS her duty in August but to have Ray run away from her why It was un thinkable It sounds harsh I know the man went on steadily but you asked for an explanation and obstinately I intend to make it in all Its baldness But as I dontcare to shout It into the face of a car full Ill take the liberty of sitting beside you I He suited his action to the word and Harriets fingers laced themselves to gether with spasmodic strength as he spoke close to her ear Lets see Harry Its just seven years ago today that I gave my firt bachelor Thanksgiving dinner and you were tbere Do you remember She nodded mutely From that day towell our last talk I have known no Independence of your will I have served for you faithfully seven years Harriets finger nails pressed Into her palms and her breath came Irregularly He went on It was my study and work to win ylifeseven years won you I have no word of blame for you Im not discussing your side of the situation now but my ownThe girl beside him remembered with a pang of regret Im merely trying to get at this Up In the woods last August I deter mined that my happiness should no longer be dependent on you Ray suddenly broke oft and looked at her Her eyes wavered rvl fl before his Down In her thxit a sob she was striving to keep there For the first time the mans voice softenedYoull think It harsh but I have set out to tell you the whole truth about my new determination I have thought you the sweetest woman God ever made but in order to achieve my Inde pendence I am unthinking thaf the sob forced Itself high In Harriets

againIlor apartments and love returned as well as given and when Ive achieved my independence I shall seek them again He ended abruptly with a lit tie gesture across the aisle Ray The sob broke out with the word Ray It was a sob which shattered seven years of logic doubts questionings and left her womans heart pleading for love Instantly a big tanned hand lay on palmturnedmoment It closed over a small one that dropped intn it with a quick passionate gIVIngSweetheart I was a long way from achieving my Independence whis pered Ray and the pre inure of the fingers within his answered him Har riets face flushed tear stained happy was close against the window Some way It was the sight opposite that gave me couragenot a silly sight Harry dear A vehement shake of the head against the window proclaimed her suddenly altered views and then despite tears and blushes she glanced around at the couple across the aisle The man was answering a chance acquaintance who had come In from an other car

Circumstances attending his dis charge were rather to his credit than discredit He had violated a rule of the company through the kindness ofI his heart He hull passed a man over the road who told a pitiful story wltbI out collecting a fare and had given him a quarter froinlils own pocket besides His act bad been reported to the super- Intendent and his discharge followed Baker was at a loss to know who had reported him He knew all the train hands well and was sure there was not one of them who would thus Injure him And so for six long miserable months he broodelThiJe doomed to see his and

find the in former in punishing him At last he found a railroad superln tendent who after consdering the cause of his dismissal gave him a job Conductors salaries are not bountiful and Baker struggled
