thelr creeds and pamphlets and arid argumentations prepared bya Muddling Moses1of a Eigorous Republic n sn and each is commanded to go forthand preach to audiences of one Democrat t The story goes inda Democrat whose will power is weak whose intelligence is known to be of a rather low order and whose prejudices are easily played upon and then proceed to pour into his ears the vocal volleys prepared by the political pedagogues The missionaries are advised to buttonhole Democrats and tell them all sorts of stunning stories about the shortcomings of Democracy There must be no letting up iFrom on 2 election to an other the tittering tattlers must con tinue to shake the bushes and rattlei the brush they are Commanded to catch Democratic rabbit and train it to hop along by the side of a Repub lican coonih the light of mutual bye andaffection These missionaries are the best trained fellows you e ver saw The educated pigs in the circus are no wiser than they Practice has made them perfect They occasionally go into headquarters to take new lessons in facial express ion in articulation in the delicate touch U and in the magical movement of the paw But the speech they know it by heart liver and other lumi naries of the inner man They are as polite S wartime nig gers and as affectionate as a bird dog They approach their subjects with a beautiful jerk of the heada magnificent bow as it werea smacking smile and a honeycooler handshake all of which is topped off with a titter as wild and hilarious as the racket of anApnl jay bird But they aint bad feilows they aijnt badat

jDoes he not recollect that the AntiSaloon League sent a 250 telegram to every county in Ken tucjcy beseeching the dear neople to rally to his support Certainly the Leagu expects s methingfor that bit

possible chance for her recovery Mrs Tong was a consistent member of the Catholic church and a devout Christian She was happiest when engaged in her Masters cause and her good benevolent work here

and the opening to the cave is somewhat larger than a hogshead and is straight down and evidently if reports be true ex tends through to China for those who haye tested it by pitching large roccs into it say they have never heard one strike the bottom Several years ago a venturesome fellow was let down some sixty feet with a rope and re that there thatllIEads mitesltwenty ISIknownever let down into

The Mountains Appeals To V Mr Cocanoughers Fancy Letter Concluded Next morning we decided to visit Battery Cave two miles away The preacher stayed at home to prepare a sermon for next day so Friend Harmon and the writer wIth Jimmie who had been there on two occasions with his school companions as companion and guide started for the crave Most of our route ran through a country with a low scrubby growth of oak and pine where we found a flock of twentyfive large longlegged sheep These the only ones save one we sawn weteI county of the real mountain They were living wellon a wild kind of grass that grows rank in the more open woodlandOn the brow of a gentle slope we came upon the object of our search which is a wild romantic spot forming a rude circle a stones throw in diameter with a one hundred foot depth with an outlet through which runs a small stream By rather a rugged path we entered t enchanted place which was perfectly familiar to pur guide we climbed down over logs and debris that had forages been pil ing against the sides of otherwise perpendicular walls Near the bottom we found a cave from which we suppose the place took its name but why it should be called Battery Cave we can wayIearly settlers may have found here There are two or r ther one extended caves which are made in the sides near the base of these ugged walls which are composed of coarse yellow grmdIstone hlghJftil it reaches the floor which is cover d to a depth of several feet with rocks that have through the elapse of time fallen from overhead We suppose thse caverns would seat if properly personsIa fine stock barn or huge cellar where fruit vegetables and other products could be kept through the winter Ore would naturally suppose the winter supply of chestnuts the little animals had stored away would not be molested in this isolated place but our two friends actually robbed the little ground or rather cavesquirrels In some remote age of the past several boulders the size ot a small cabin have been detached from their rocky thedepthslbelow huge rocks was rather difficult but v e did so to the amusement of Friend Harmon r We were rather surprised to find that e len this spot upon which nature had vished so much wild beauty had been disturbed by the woodmans ax and invaded by wagon and team indeed it seemed to us a trespass Upon natures sacred domain when we saw that sey eralof the hemlcck or fir varity that must have added much beauty to the place had been cut and d agtied out to convenient place to Our friend suggested thatthiswould ba a rood place in which to grow fruit as it was so well protected from frost and wind Here we found the wild cu cumber bush with its tall stem and large palm like leaves with cones as Jrge3 a teacup also the birch the evergreen laurel some halt dozen kinds of ferns the little vine like tea plant bearing its small red berries shrubs bashes and plants of the more common kind all of which lend their fragrance and beauty to make this place attractive After exploring caves climbing mos covered boulders that are hoary with countless ages and noticing trees and plants to our mental and moral im proyement with grateful hearts we decided to leave this quiet retreat alone in all its beauty and loveliness While climbing out and walking a pine log Jimmie had the misfortune to tear his pants from bottom to knee but the rent was soon mended with pins This country seems to be the home of the fern family as it grows to perfection We saw on this trip solid patches many feetin Dimension waving their golden fronds in the gttitle Octo ber breeze while thoughts of the fern loving sisters of our own country came into our mind As we stood upon the rocky walls of this chasm which lookedas though it were a hundred centuries old when creation dawned we thought of the mighty throes of nature the upheavals and convulsions our planet must have u deniohein giving birth to this rock ribbed i uorge that silently sneaks to us of its

which are not owin operation but are the chief product of this country about which we learned so little that we can hardly write intelligently but we should think of this country as one vast coal field owned chiefly by coal companies some few individual mines are worked with two stratums of coal the upper one from ten to twenty feet underground and from twentysix to thirty aixinches in thickness The lower vein is some four hundred and fifty deep and nearly five feet in thickness The present generation wilt hardly need to work this Vein Only coal fields near the railroad are as yet being worked where it is run out in small cars drawn by a small mule on ti little narrow tracf There is a general driveway through a mine that lengthens as the work advances One hundred and fifty feet on either side of this way is worked thus making a way three hundred feet wide through a hill The earth above is held up by small posts of different length which must some day rot when the hill will sink some three feet Mineis extend their work right on under towns dwelling railroads or any thing else that may be above them A good miner can make from 350 to 5 per day while a green hand would

only a cent n dozen plus a little time andtrouble they can keepfresh eggs for several months and strictlyfreshPost The spoiling of eggs is declared bY scientific men to be due to the entrance of air carrying germs of decomposition through the shells Normally- an eggshell has a coating of mucilagi nous matter not perceptible to the touch buf quite sufficient to make the hell air tight This coating will keep out germs for quite awhile especially If the egg is carefully handled But it is sure to become softened in time either by washing or by friction with a case or with other eggs Then the germ laden air gets in and the eggs begin to spoiL This explains why eggs packed In lime pr salt or placed in cold storage are very far from being ITesh when they come on the market According to experiments made at the govern ment station in North Dakota there really is one method of keeping fresh eggs which does preserve their fresh ness By this method eggs which were packed in August were opened three and on half months later and still appeared tobe perfectly fresh In most packed eggs after a little time tile yolk settles to one side and the egg Is then inferior la quality But In these three months old eggs the yolk was In Its normal position ind in taste they were not to be distinguished from fresh unpacked eggs This is worth knowing If it Is true And there fcre other reports io the same effect German experimenters tried twenty methods of preserving eggs The three which were found most satisfactory were coating them with vaeIne preserving them in lime water and preserving them In water glass The vaseline was tedious and the limewater gave the eggs a disa greeable odor and taste So that of all the twenty methods employed the use of water glass seem ed to be the best There Is one test ftf packed eggs with which most cooks are familiar Such eggs do not beat up well for cakemaking or for frosting By this test the eggs k ptin water glass solution seemed qult equal to the average fresh eggs of the market Water glass Is a cheap product that shciuld not cost more than pO cents a gallon One gallon would make enough solution to preserve fifty dozen eggs so that the cost would be only a cent a glass Is a sodium or potassium silicate To make the solution use ten quarts of pure water that has been thoroughly boiled and then cooled Add one quart of water glass to the ten quarts of water f Tht Sun and CourierJournal 1iO The Springfield Sun JLOO per year Commissioners Sale Washington Circuit Court Ky Billy Brady etc Plaintiffs vs Levi Brady etc Defendants Equity

toget out of it not by a long shqt Last night he got a young couple from Shelbyville into a peckof tough luck and then stood back and giggled behind his hands the pretty dimples in his cheeks sparkling all evening At 6 oclock last night Police Major Edward Burke received a telephone message from the Shelbyville police asking him to intercept R G Todd and Miss Edith Brown of that city as they passed through Louisville on their way to the Gretna Green They were enroute on a Louisville and Nashville train which arrived Jn this city at 605 said There was a hurry and bustle for a minute at the stationhouse and then the automobile shot down to Main street and up Main to the Firststreet railroad station at a speed When the officers arrived at the spot they saw the Jefferson itIe ferry baking in so they ran the machine down to the waters edge and went to the wharf There they spied the young people lurking in jthe shadow waiting ata tension for the boat to land The couple were taken to the stationhouse and detained in the room Then the reporters apoeared on the scene and the affair be came shrouded in mystery No gentlemen in a calm official tonewe dont even know where they are That was a whopper and a challenge So the knights of ink and began a game of Couple Couple Wholl See the Couple with the police on the other side of toe railing Thirty minutes of tiptoeing and whispering and collaring of various attaches and slamMing of doors was followed by such expressions as Say shes a peach Did yuh get next to those wonder he ran away with her and the officers retorted with I hetcha ain seen em All right then what did She look like etc IShe was frocked in a neat green trav suit with a hat to match and nifty tan pumps For a man to attempt further description is

intfn lIrlOrtonsand hquest inen Irt the world j In course of maneuvers which It is needless to describe Barrett made n sale of S mIl seC U ItIeS for Orton and I he understood that he was entitled to a commission amounting to about X10 000 O ton decliiiLkl to pay it Barrett had moved heaven and earth nnaa corner of the other place to I THEY WILL COST 10500 SAID RIlE make this d c lfor he saw a fortune In the 10000 It would give hima chance to buy a partnership in an en terprise that two other young men friends of his were launching with excellent prospects A lifetime night riot Wing Barrett such an oJporh1It and he was furious with the egregious breach of Orton1fr he had been guilty have a certain Yankee bJoodwith a touch of aid fashioned urtesy and precision The Interview between them when Barrett made tils final de mand was a model for temperance ot language veiling red hot animosity for Orton was enraged clear through by tim discovery that Barrett had in ten eitto resign his position Uhe got the 10000 Ho 111 not set it but h resigned anyhow right In the middle of the panic said my friend Mr H and without n card in his hand ti draw to fort seems that he had Ipst a memorandum which was the sole evidence of Ortons agreement with film and he believed that Ort n had stolen it Three or four days later whcfttre- U was downtown abdut the Tuajilj hour hp met ora pf Ortons IVk ap parenfly jby accident The fact aid iZb Yr 7rr however that this clerk and several others including some from Mr Hs office had been tinritlng Barrett stren uously for three hours w1thorders to meet him accidentally if possible Of course I dont know what was the row between you and Mr Orton sal r the clerk but Ill give you a strai ht tin You can set your job back If you work it right Go and have a talk with Long Bob Long Bob was Robert Long a sort of manage for Orion Barrett de clined to go to see him and could not be moved by mysterious hints of benefits that might follow HQ disengaged himself from the clerk who immediately ran hot foot to Ortons office and went irto restaurant to eat his luncheon Presently who should stroll in but Long Bob himself and he took a sen tat Barretts table with many expressions of friendly regard He ordered something to eat con versing meanwhile upon random top ics But by and by he began to chuc kle apparently at the memory of something c musing I was thinking of Mr Ortonb hand said he His writing certain ly is the limit I got hold of a piece of it this morning that Ill bet ever you couldnt read And he pulled an envelope out of hIs pocketr Long Ebb said Barrett I wasnt born yesterday You learned that J was here and you came over to get me to read that thing I dont know why find I dont care 1 wont read itT Put It away Youre a clever fellow returned Long Bob and youre a business man makeiyqu 550 if youll read this note for me I wont touch day of phil OrtonVi money said Barrett not with n ten foot pole He arose from the table paid his restauIrantMr Hs clerks Oh hello hello Barrett said the clerk Glad to see urr H was asking me If I knew your address Guess he wants to throw something aroundIOrtons g I dont know what It is answered the fellow but his face betrayed him Tell Mr H with my compliments said Barrett that 1 will have nothing to do with Mr Ortons affairs Now Xlie truth about the piece of writing Is that MrH had received it that mornIngby mall On the previous afternoon Orton had left the city o one of those sudden and mysterious journeys which cut an Important figure In his scheme of operations While driving to the ferry in a cab he bap thought of something which he wlsheu to communicate to Mr H and as there was not time to telephone he wrote upon the flyleaf torn from a bool and in the semidarkness of the jolting cab He wrote the address in n sort of half print which he uses for such piirposesso the missive save noI trouble to the postman but It threw Mr H Into a cold perspirtlon Of course there are experts in pen manshlp and they are very honest gentlemen as Mr H was careful to admit In touching upon the point with me but he did not know any of them as he knew David Barrett The rain of the information In the note might be colossal especially in the hands of enemies but Barrett could be trusted with it- When the clerks failed there was nothing to do but go straight at the mark and pay Barretts figure if It should prove to be within reason All efforts to gut into communication with Orton hud failed Nobody knew where he was Nobody could make even an Intelligent guess at the message At Barretts bachelor quarters Mr Hi was Informed that the young man was not at home Whereupon the sumo chanted hands and Mr H was advised to Foek the studlo of Miss Mar da Donovan He heeded this advice and found Barrett who Md just tIn Ishcd tcHinc the story to Marcia and was about r be sent out by her upon sorio errand to a neighboring art store The two men met therefore as It were upon the threshold and each read the others eye Barrett knew that Mr H had come to offer him money probably several hundred dollars if read that letter Mr H know that Barrett would refuse Mr H summoned llIall his tact and cleverly elicited the Information that Barrett was upon an errand for Miss Donovan Not for the world would MirU interrupt him or delay the serv ice to the lady If Miss Donovan would kindly permit him to wait he could hnvo the great pleasure of be coming acquainted with her work He was a humble admirer of the art plc torial and tad a trifling collection at his home to which he made occasion al additions Meanwhile Marcia was nearly faint lug with Mr Hsclrcl In her hand Suppose oh just suppose In a wild dream that this man should take an Interest in her work As Mr H had waved business aside and was now scrutinizing a picture with the alrolUK true connoisseur there was nothing for Barrett to do but depart upon his mission Mr H turned from the picture to Marcia You know what I want Mr Bar raidYes but he wont do It You can persuade him Now look here my child youre an artist a real one and poor as a church mouse I suppose Very well I to buy five pictuies from you My choice yoU understand What will they cs tiIYou ncnr gasped Marcia If I perruhde Mr Barrett s ues t w h L q i Marcia knew what Barrett would think Ot hits proposition He would utterly condemn It She felas If she were selling him out behinds his back Notfor tier own sake not for fame and fortune would she do this because she loved him Dqt how about his own interests Here was a chance for him to make money perhaps even to get his 10000 but she knew him He was as stiff necked as a bronze statue Having decided to refuse Mr Hs bribe no sum on earth could buy him He must be made to see the matter in another light They will cost 10500 said she Mr H opened his eyes wide Great goodness he cried Why are they worth that She laughed nervously They must be she said Nobody will buy them for less This novel method of fixing a price appealed to Mr Hs sense of humor and he laughed long and loud Listen said she pale to the lips the 500 is for me I must hay something tc show The 10000 Is for him but he must never know where itI HIS BIO BODY SHOOK WITS INTEBNAIi IiAUQHTEB comes from YoU must give me your word that never under any possible provocation will jyou betray this bar by moneytheword or deed let Mr Barrett know j All right said Mr H I will meet your terms And you Prouiise never never tb disclose this sec et no matter what happens My word and honor he replied When Barrett returned Mr H was no longer a financier he was a gentle patron of the arts j Upon my soul he cried Miss Donovans work amazes me She is worthy of llbwal encouragement She has a great future He turned to Marcia at the same time indicating pIc- tures with a pointing finger I think Ill take this one and that one And he proceeded to discuss the can vases with great delicacy and appre ciation until Barrett could have clasp ed him to his bosom Not a word meanwhile was said of Ortons poteI but Darrct s sense of gratitude working hard within him The issue could not be in doubt Asa personal favor to you sir he said when the matter had at last been cleverlyIntroduced MI will read that note if I can But it must be distinctly understood that Miss Donovan has nothing to tlowith this transaction I certainly dosaid Marcia For the next half hour Mr Hi and Mania were busy with the pictures while Barreft wrestled with the Orton enigma of which he flnally presented a written translation to Mr H who read as follows Dear HI am off for Washington strictly on the quiet If necessary corn municate with me through Hubbard setItIebe made public He does not know why but It mustlot

to pay the tio it of Barrett claim to Marcia for tic privilege of finding out that he would have to pay It over again to Barrel Upon Ortons account Ge was pledged to Marcia not to tell Barrett and he was pledTd to Barrett w l tJ dispose the contents at the uote to Iurcia And in a matter of this kind MrK Is a man of his word The five pi res VTV sent fhlhouse and Marcia had a check forI 4 500 which
