conveyed there in a carr age Drs Hyatt and Lampton were called in but it was soon seen that Mr Rogers could not survive and within three hours af ter his arrival in Springfield the final summons had come While in Louuville Mr Rogers ate fish for his dinner and it isf thought that vit was this that gave him acute indigestion from which he died lt ilso probable that ptomaine POisoning caused by the fish was partly responsible for Mr Rogers death The remains were interred in the family lot at Pleasant Grove frriday morning TheI burial services were very simple consisting in the reading of th 5 Scriptures a prayer and several s6ngs Mr Rogers was born jn the Pleasant Grove neighborhocdi yffentytwo years ago and was the tt bf Mr and Mrs Milton Rogers and a member of one of Washington countys

Congressional Committee Washington F b4The Democrat i ic leaders in the House ot Representa tives contemplate doing Kentucky and the Kentu ky delegation a signal honor in the organization of the minority in the Sixtyfirst Congress They 4ave picked out Hon Ben Johnson of the Fourth Kentucky district for chairman of the Democratic National Congrpss onal Committee whichwill have charge of the campaign for Congressmen in the off year of 1910 Mr Johnson was unanimously chosen by Krntucthe present term which expires with this the Sixtieth Congress and he will of course be reelected as a member of the committee by the Kentucky d legation at their first caucus after theth March The record hei made as State campaign chairman in Kentucky last fall and his early won reputation in the House for force of character executive ability etc naturally suggested him to the leaders asa fitting chairman for the national organization in which will rest most of the hope for a Democratic House in the Sixtyrsecnnd Congress Tnere is reason to assume that Mr Lloyd of Missouri present chairman of the National Congressional Committee will not be a candidate to succeed him selffir13t because of the campaign through which he recently passed and because of tneTf act that the new leader of the minority Mr Clark is also from Missouri a State that has never shown any disposition to be the whole show even when solidly Democratic If he carries out his intention not to staijd for reelection Mr Lloyd has already said that he would join with Messrs Clayton Griggs nd others who have been quietly canvassing the situation for Mr oonional1dwithout thelat ters knowledge That Mr Johnson wil accept thp place if it cOmes to him in sUch a complimentary and unsolicited Way can be assured It is seldom that a onterm Congressman so early in gratiates himself into the esteem and hearts of the old leaders as to be unanimously selected by them on their own motion for so signal an hnor MARK TWAiN I L1QLN

be frankly put before the army and t individuals are to ne invited to volun Steerfpr vaccination No soldier or officer will be compelled to submit to anti typhoid vaccination against his will jjjit effort will be made by lecturesan and examples to show the soldiers the advantage of availing themselves of such a imple and easy way of escaping one of the worst and most dreaded of camp diseases These measures are to be taken as a f result of the recommendations of the board of eminent physicians appointed to consider measures for preventing typhoid fever in army camps It was jiamed at the instance of Brig Gen Robert M OReSlly then Surgeon Gen eral of the army and included in its membership were Drs Victor C Vaughan Of Ann Arbor William T Councilman of Boston John H Muss ejv f Philadelphia Alexander Lam i3rt of New York Simpn Flex 1 rof New York and William S Thayer of Baltimore A summary of the boards conclusions was made puolic today This points Qut the well known fact that both during the Civil and the Spanish American Wars typhoid fever prevailed to a great extent among the troops especially among the younger men in regiments Tecehtly recruited Old soldiers were not often affected and as regiments learned how tp take care of themselves the disease tended to diminish It has long been jecognized says the I report that a per on who has once had typhoid is practicajlly insured against a second attack aiid the medical profession has row found in antityphoid vaccination a simple and harmless way of artificially inducing almost this same amount of protection It is a very sim 1 pIe clean ahd harmless method and a Lmere trifle comp red to the danger to f life pr the tong illness and expense of alt attack of he fever In the last few tears

might bu If thy both wanted to useit at he same time Youd think that one rthe other would simply have to take the bag and the other do without it wouldnt you Why certainly But now see how lIT such circumstances two men managed so that each had the bagi These two young men living together and not yet grown rich had however So far progressed In their accumulations that they had Acquired this one hiuidbag between them They expected to go on their vacation together and what did they want of more than one bag it would dp easily for both And then came the bombshell A When the vacation schedules In the two places where the two forked had been made up the young men each to have two weeks found that one of them would have to start a week ahead of the other And that was a bombshell to throw into the cump HoW about tile bag Which one of them should have the bag But In two minutes the bombshell dwindled Into a hand grenade and then Into a firecracker and then to nothing at all VTiy rim said Jim who was going to start first Ill take the r aj and when 1 get there Ill just jmrty 3t and send it back to you by express And thats what Jim did and so when Tim started out on his vacatl4u he had the bag And then when Tim got there he emptied the bag and at the end of the week which was the enk pf his two weeks Jim took the bag again and brought it home with him and emptied it again and once more

death of Mr EvanRogersmyk- insman J and friend I first met him in Springfield about four years ago and since that time I have admired Kim and loved him for his many excellent t traits of character In all of my life I haye never known a man more devoted to duty than he his nature was rebellious toward all things that were wrong but hiss heart was too bIgtoo crowded with a pure unselfish love toihate anything Sin which there was even a little bit JtoooHe only despised those things irredeemably tainted with sin those things that might retardthe footsteps of men and women In their march toward a righteous end I do not believe Mr Rogers had an enemy in the world unless some crea ture reveling in the habitation of the lowflung1 disliked him because of his exemplary life because of his frequent attempts to rescue perishing men to lift as jt were unfortunate beings from environments where there are many cesspools whirling men into degradation and carrying shriveled souls down to hell If the departed one ever made an enemy he made that enemy while engaged in doing battle for his Master He was a courageous soldier toughtIago his soul heard a call from the lips of God for volunteers and he enlisted and he always fought the good fight Mr Rogers was the embodiment of honor in him were all the elements of true manhood Truly truly the world is better by ms having lived in it When a man of his type passes away the community in which he lived is not alone the loser but the entire State sifffers a loss every good citizen is a pillar of the State and upon his shoul ders rests a part of the responsibilities of the Commonwealth Indeed Mr Rogers life is worthy of emulation by all young men True many have wOh greater Tiches and more of fame than he but none there are who have mounted higher upon the ladder of righteousness and no man can be more successful than he whose lite is pure and whose citizenship is crowned with honest endeavor The world needs more men like the departed one men who will strive for the betterment of all mankind even to the neglect of those interests which bring to them fortunes of gold and silver Not long ago Mr Rogers said to me that he did not beheye any man truly successful if he lived for self alone that some of the completest and saddest failures he had ever known were in the lives of men whose very souls were dictated to by greed and who had grown old while Spring Suils We have at our store today and Tomorrow Feb 10 and II An expert representing the StarrsSchaefer Co of Cincinnati to take measures for Spring shipments of Fine

zealous ca e of a most generous benefactor an from childhoods glad happy hour till the ligttof life went out in the nij ht of death they loved him with a lo re akin to heaven To Mr Will Rogers of

anoint their bleeding hearts when they think of the beauties in the life just closed a life so lived that in death the soul passed to the Courts of Heaven while the smiling lips of God breathed His Benedictions of Love But among all of those whose hearts have been made sad by the death of Mr Rogers there is not one who suf fers such terrible anguishas the de voted wife betgun in the Morning of Love the two h id sailed oer calm seas each endeay oring tpdo those things that would shed su light into the soul of the other He was the Light of her Life her bea con casting a radiance ahead of the

faltering step nor quailing heart and when out of the sky an an gels voice called him before the Great High Courts to her the separation was as tearing flesh from flesh twos as a thousand pinches from fingers of steel on the heart But may she not find some solace for her wounded soul in the thought that after a whilejust a little whileshe too will say goodbye to the world and go to be with him for eyes more in Palaces beyond the skies brightaas any in heaven My pen could trail on and on in these feeble eulogies of the dear good man but why should I continue Why this eulogizing when I know that

wide open and with the blazing cars attached made a streak for the open country The train of dynamite had but reached the little section house in the suburbs when came the terrific ex plosion The

duties at the Sliver Creek general store where he was employed as a salesman and threw himself dejectedly into the nearest chair 1 The room was cramped arid meager ly furnished and the scantiest of fires flickered desperately against immi nent extinction albeit the night was bitterly cold and a strong north wind drove the snow in gathering drifts against the crazy wooden walls of the wretched shanty A thin worried womanJohns wiferwith a baby at her breast and two young jchildren clinging to her skirts bestirred herself upon his en trance to lay a ragged cloth upon the rough deal table and set thereon a pitcher of boiled potatoes which hum ble fare was to constitute without savory or garnish the evening meal A Jug of cold well water flanked the smoking tubers Theres a letter for you

mouthful of the now lukewarm tubers and read aloud the con tents of the lawyers dispatch Dear Sir Our late client your lament ed father Ezra Sillman passed away last night and in accordance with his

breath John Sillman crumpled up the pa per Into a ball between his palms platter with a grunt of diagustJandlit his pipe at which he pulled long and thoughtfully The old mans considerate said Eliza dryly Hes anxious you should have a quiver full though he doesnt make any suggestion as to how youre going to fill the mouths of the younkers What are you go Ing to do J 1 II must consider a bit Eliza

bitter reproof Why dont your brothers Ezra and Martin look after the child 1 Theyre rich men already and their father has now doubled their wealth What Isa mouth more or less to the likes of them Id

prosperous at either hand of Mr Ma kin John shabby and dejected at the other extreme end ignored and solitary The lawyer a small dryfaced ac tive t man had pressed his hand at first meeting and whispered something which John could not catch tHe rose from his seat now and spoke Gentlemen you all know the terms- o your late fathers will There are no legal technicalities to explain no complications to unravel To you Mr Ezra the land and the house property of which your late father was possessed at the time of his decease To you Mr Martin all moneys plate furniture pictures books

clamoring for I would get a nice jaw Ing and be sarcastically compliment oedon having sawdust for brains Then when I want a simple pair of Socks rubbfsh How Jones managed to dress that evening for the opera has been asource of puzzle tot him ever since That measly little shirtbutton persisted in ll ding under various pieces of furni ture until his supply of choice profan ity was exhausted and his temper a raging yolcano He couldnt find his cufflinks a tenminute search brought to light one collar fairly tidy and his tie stubbornly refused to form itself into a neat bow until wifey summoned by a clarion call came to his rescue Altogether it was a very hot and wrathy Jones who dabbing a bit of cpjogne about his person surveyed hlrnselfn the glass and demanded to know if Mrs Jones would take

glancing at the pasteboards and roll of bills lying on the dresser My memory is not in the least affected with distinct emphasis on the possessive pronoun Mrs Jones quickly noticed the insin uation but wisely held her peace She knew him wellbetter than he knew himself and on several occa- sIons his mental lapses hall produced complications embarrassing in the ex tremebut his capacity for self admiration was limitless Therefore after ahasty dab of powder she quiet 1y jprpnounced her readiness and Jones snapped off the lights The theater reached his ruffled tem per was again aggravated by a seedy fellow who was trying to force his way through the jam and who seemed to take particular pain to crowd poor Jones Jones lost no time in telling him hist opinion of public nuisances in genera but the rude one advised him to hire a hall and promptly disappeared in the crush at which he swore softly and felt for the tickets They were gone He clutched wildly for his bank roll Gone With horrible thoughts of pickpock ets chasing rampant through his disordered brain he hurried Mrs Jones into a nearby drug store gasped out Ills troubles cautioned her to wait for himhe would soon find the wretch and regained the street hia head in a i whirl Here was a nice mess Four dol lars worth of tickets and 15 other cold plunks lifted from his with an easb that was positively uncanny He could see it all

Jones was eloquent in his appeal as the thought of thq fellow stuffing him self at his Jones expense Was gall and wormwood The patrolman convinced that things were all right acted quickly piisoneriwas hustled off to the station Jones went over his story again to the sergeant dilating on the details until the outlook was indeed black for the unfortunate who had given the name of Marshall A thorough search however failed to bring forth either tickets or money and Jones wasfuri ous Sergeant he stormed hes had a confederate near by and Yer another broke in Marshall I never lifted yer wad an you

before me was substantial enough t s Igtepsof repair it looked by the way and I toff fiuloldtime respectability Into a condition of decay and decrepitude I am sure that it would never have occurred to me to enter had It not been that the young lady who accom panied me turned and deliberately mounted the steps towards the front door Of sourse I followed She did not ring the bell for In truth there seemed to be no bell to pull But the portaj was noiselessly thrown wide from within and we entered I looked- I i vain for the servant who r sup posed would receive our cards but to my surprise Mabel walked straight ahead through the wide hall without hesitation appearing quite familiar with the place There should have been a light I thought though It was sonlythe Interior of this strange mansion was very dark and I could only make out in an indistinct sort of way the faces that looked down upon me from some old portraits obviously fine works ojf art as I passed Mabel had Introduced me to most of her lends for we had been en gaged f6r six months and were to be married very soon but she had never spojken to me of these people whop perhaps were rather out pf the fashion and had been forgotten As these re flections passed through my mind we ascerided a broad staircase to the sec ond floorl and then it was that I heard asound I revelry which came from a room which I correctly judged to be the dining room of the house The heavy oaken doors of the room were slightly ajar and througli them was cast a strong beam of light that fell full upon an object which startled me for an instant it was a headless human figure A second later I smiled at my wn alarm inasmuch as the figure was nothing but a suit of old armor without the helmet If I had had a chance I should have questioned Mabel In order to maket sure that our unannounced entrance was not an intrusion also J might have asked alter starting put for a days yachting trip we had returned so early and for so strange an entertainment But e ther query would have bjen out of J lace just then Very ligely I thought she had some SUr1ri store for mea lunch party maybe arranged by some friends In oir honor for quite a series bf dinners and other entertainments had been gl jvn to us in celebration of our engagement Moreover all that I lessthanother moment I found myself in the large and brillihntly lighted dining room If the ret of the mansion was dark there was no lack of Illumination here Las fairly dazzled by the numerous Hehts clusters of which aI raneed in Sliver candelabra helped to- pltrn a long table at which twenty live or thirty people were seated To my astonishment not one of the thejone end of the table were two vacant chairs tr rother Mabel quietly took one of them and I deeming the time hardly nronor for an explanation seat ed inysolf In the other Soup was Im mediately placed before us evidently twoItcourses each other in Vhatttherewith any distinctness for I was so ab u1ellady silk cut low it the neck to such a degree J thought appropriatt y particularly recall the fact that she yore camellias in her liiulra fashion vhlch I had heard of as belonging to generation n gOJIt was palpable too hat l1er front was false Wftha she vas most agreeable and amiably disposed as I presently discovered from her converrtion 3ho was the first person who addressed any remark to ire abruptly waking some Inquiry about ii grandfather and stating fn tie same breath that she wjts from Philadelphiai At her left sa a gentleman of rathc r more than middlo age as J judge I with a remarkably pInk iioSe and a reat expai se of shirtfront who was devoting himself so assldubusiy to his plate hat not a word escaped his lips 0n the othe7 side of the old lady with tnfe caIriMac Vai iu extijeaieiy tuin 1 man With a peaked countenance who so bstronglylaker that I felt almost tempted to ask him a question or two about the state of the market in respect to coffins and other funeral equipments His necktie was black and likewise his hair while his expression was one of extreme solemnity Mabel was seated at my right while on my other hand was a buxom matron of fbrty or so nlanipuiated knife and fork with activity that suggested a most ex lle t digestionthfirst whom I noticed particularly As I looked along the table I was rather surprised to find that not a face was mown to me There was a cadaver ouslooking young man with a perma turely bald head whom I pointed out to Mabel asking who he was for I had noticed that a sign of recognition passed between them My brother she replied quietly and as I imagined sadly Now this was a surprise for I did not know that Mabel had a brother Perhaps I thought he was not an especially estimable youth and so was nored by her family If that were why should he be present on this occasion Here was another puzzle be solved when a suitable oppor offered for questioning my ancee On the left of Mabels brother was a remarka y toungly enough what looked to me like a Bridal wreath But the handsomest woman present was she whom I supposed to be our hostess She was of regal presence and with her velvety eyes and coronet of black braids resembled a Spanish senorita Though I had never seen her before I took It for granted that she must know who 1 was and repeatedly I tried to catch a glance from her but it was in vain for her conversation and attention were addre sedalmostexcluslvely to- na elderly man on her right appar ently a foreign diplomat shl1f a dozen orders glittered upon his bret- tA the other end of the festive board at a gentleman with a huge gray mustache presumably our host I hear no remarks from him save now and then a request tdpasshe decanter addressed to one or another of the guests near him I had no opportunity for speech with him inasmuch as Mabel and I were divided from him by almost the length of the table On the whole the affair struck me as entirely extraordinary Here we were myself completely a stranger at a banquet Ina house which I had never visited before Indeed had it not been for Mabels assurance of wel come and the two seats apparently re served for us I should have supposed that we had made some mistake Mabel herself was singularly silent though ordinarily quite talkative and even jolly and offered no explanation of the situation But perhaps what astonished me more than anything else was my discovery some time after we were seated at the table of a young man some distance away who bore a striking resemblance to my chum at college Upon my word I was on the point of shouting at him across the bolird In fact the words Why BiH old man how did you get here were on my lips when I checked myself In time owing to a remembrance the fact that Bill had been dead jfor eight years having meta most untimely fate in a railway disaster 1 While engaged in wondering whether the young nian could be a near rela tion of my former chums I was startled at seeing a telegram in the familiar Western Union envelope laid beside my plate Some people notably Stock brokers and newspaper men are accustomed to telegrams and for tha reason are not alarmed by them But habit had not rendered me thus callous and with some haste I tore open the envelope and glanced over the contents It read Mabel died this morning of acute congestion of the lungs Amelia Parker I declare that I trembled as if I had a chill If Mabel had not been by my side I should have been overcome by the shock Holding the telegram be fore Mabels eyes I excninr In a voice that trembled with conflicting emotions of horror and anger This Is carrying a practical joke too far Here some wretch tele graphs me In your mothers name that you are dead sCareltws of the almost frenzied energy with which I spoke I looked around upon the faces of my fIlovIfguests as one does wbo is conftd sympathy To my a nazoment in response to my sIecch hre P1Ose a cackle of laughter which was pres ently transformed into a general rip rl of mirth nd sv hittb The like of it I had never heard before and please henven I hor0 pCr rr may LLIn l 3 ntt liv red laughter but rather the empty and strident ta himmtlo rf beingb lost to the feeiJrr of 1iuntiiy- tPale with aner I hose to my fee andy steadying myself with one hand on the back of iTiycham exclaimed What does this mean Dead silence was the only respqnse Conversation hd ceased but I felt that every eye was fixed upon me Aghast looked at Mabel but she dIJ not return my gaze At length tho old woman with the camellias in her hair who sat opposite addressed me saying Why do you think that Mabel Is not dead Good God I replied Hrr she is Dont you rev iior Whaido these people mean 1 The old woman grinned and waved her feather fan at me playfully say ing T Ask her if she isn t dead I 9

to stand on this spot Where there has been an empty lot for 15 yean past gaspedThena tremendous effort to summon up nay courage and face composedly this dreadful situation Addressing myself to the old woman opposite I said Perchance you were acquainted with the former occupants ofWadwelling Oh yes she answered pleasantly I am somewhat distantly related to our host and hostess of this evening They were drowned lost on the ill fated Ville deTaris This house belonged to them and not very long afterwards it was torn down v But suppose that the present own er of the lot were to build upon Itl I suggestedhU would be necessary to hold these charming entertainments elsewhere Not at all she said laughing and o4theterfere It frequently happens of course that a building Is put up on ground previously occupied by another dwelling You must understanc1 though1 I might have supposed you knew it that while the material parts of tenement may be removed at anytime its astral shell remains in per petuJty Thus the ghosts of half a dozen or more dwellings may remalm on the site occupied bya new and substantial stru ture They are none the less real for being invisible to living eyes The most remarkable instances of haunted houses that you have heard about are due to conditions of that sort several t families of phantasms perhaps premises topographically coincIdent with a mansion which affords physical accommodation to people fn the flesh I trust I make myself clear Quite so I replied politely This conversation was interrupted by the elderly gentleman with thl pink nose who seemed to be dissatiS- fied with something Having poured out a water goblet half full of sherry from a decanter he called for brandy and with those strong spirits filled it to the brim Then he took a caster of red pepper and sprinkled its content liberally on the surface of the mixture t Raising the goblet to his lipSj he drained its contents to the last dro and set it down wjth a sigh Ah he exclaimed it lis ne strength If only I could get a schoonei of real beer The old lady regarded this perform ance attentively with a lorgnette held to her nose Said she sympathetically That is the way with all pleasuret in the after world They seem to have no savor Even the milk is chalk and water T I suppose that is why this mince pie tastes so insipid I responded toying absently with a bit of pastry OB my

all fade into t distance Another moment of utttc darkness of creaking and swaying during which I made a desperate effort to grasp aid steady Mabels chair To my bewlldeiment my hand touched a coil of rope i1 heard familiar voices There was a burst of sunlight I sat propped up by cushions on the deck of the pleasure yacht Undine surrounded by solicitous friends Mabel with her warm hand reassuringly clasped In mine told me of my half hours unconsciousness I had fallen overboard In my attempt to recover her hat and had been rescued only after sinking for the third time Not until I hse heard all
