lately pur chased a small tract of land adjoining a millproperty near our city The skyward tendency of the price of tobacco was the moving cause of the purchase On a portion of his newly acquired far- mIiiflirow about 12 or 13 acres of the weed but that is beside the question The point that the writer desires to call special attention to is a small spot of about 4 acres cut off by the Southern Railway On this portion the aforesaid barrister has in mind ohe of the largest undertakings and ondof the most unique and interesting that was ever attempted in this or any other portion of this broad and fair land of ours It is nothing other than a model up todate negro village with modern improve ments etc The plat he has a plat fresh from the hands of a surveyor has avenues streets boulevards and sites for public buildings In all therrare 51 lots each with a frontage and KX feet deptn On all these lots he proposes to build a two room and kitchen cottage that will bring him in 700 per month Articles of incorporation will disclose the new citys name s Lincoln Park and the new city will be included in cities of the sixth class It will be pentagonal in shape and on the five corners will be found pretentious buildings On a schoolhouse another a sub sta Ione postoffice another still a water light and heating plant the fourth a City court and a police station and the fifth a Lodge room and dance hall In the center will be a Union church The streets will bear such names as Foraker Boulevard Emancipation Ave nue Chancery Lan etc A competent architect has furnished an estimate of the cost ot construction at 40000 Our barrister expects to sell shares inthe new enterprise at HID each and will no doubt shortly offer them upon the mar ket publicly An important fact that must not be overlooked is that the salaries of the preacher and the teachers are to be borne by the iricorporators The chil 0 dren are to be g yen the free use of books in the school besides There is also jm contemplation a gym nasium a ball team golf links a tennis court and a pubie library besides a track where the natives can make and break records that willcause Dorando to look like a drug on the

County Saturday March 6 1909W F Grigsby Esq Springfield Ky My Dear Sir twYou requested to hear from me when I left for the Sunny South 1 left Louisville the night of Feb 16 and after a comfortable nights ride over theL N 1 reached Atlanta Ga Here I stopped for a days sightseeing I first went to the Union stock yards saw enough mules and horses to supply the entire South in my judgment Here I found my friends W T Smith and Dickerson from St Marys Ky with a load of good Kentucky horses which they were selling at good prices After viewing the Capitol building and other places of interest I left Atlanta arriving at Jacksonville Fla the 18th at noon Jacksonville is a progressive hustling city of 65000 people It is located on the St John River about 18 miles from the ocean inlet It has all kinds of pee pie afldall kinds of business It is the distributing point for all of Southern Florida The big ocean steamers come in through the inlet and unload their immense cargo in the Jacksonville har bors I saw the Steamer Huron from New ork unloading She had several hundred passengers and 750 tons of freight The freight all in one pile would fill one of our large tobacco barns While at the dock Isaw a fish boat of oysters selling at 100 for a flour barrel full While here I took in the Florida State Fair and Exposition There is no livestock raised here to exhibit have not sufficient grass for a milk caw They had a wonderful display of semitropi cal vegetables fruits flowers melons etc I was greatly interested in the display of tobacco It was of the Sumatra Wrapper variety The stalks grow eleven feet high and it produces 1600 pounds per acre They receive 50 cents a pound for it They sow the seeds in beds in the early part of February in forty or fifty days transplant in the fields It grows in the shade After it is planted they plant posts twelve feet high and cover with slats an inch thick and 1J inches ip rtW e think our White Burley is much trouble to grow It is very little work compared with Florida tobacco V As you know Jacksonville had a 10 000000 fire in 1901 which burned oyer ten acres of territory The city has since been rebuilt with substantial stone steel concrete and cement buildings The city and county public buildings are modern commodious struc tures After remaining here four days I went twenty eight miles farther South to the ancient city ot Sit Augustine This as you know is saidto be the old est city in the Umted States It has about eight or ten thousand people and was settled by the Spanish I saw houses forts etc said to have been built four hundred years ago It is principally a city of hotels and tourists Two of the finest hotels in the world are the Ponce De Leon and the Alcazor of St Augustipe Fare 700 a day and up 1 stopped at these hotels about five minutes between meals The streets are very narrow in many places too narrow for vehicles to pass in safety and In many places there are no sidewalks the people wagons wheels and autos ail taking chances in the mid dle of the street Traffic is very slow Leaving St Augustine I came one hundred miles Jtarther South to New Smyrna where I wl1 gad to meet our neighbors Mr aCrid Mrs Croatce They are drutg light housekeeping located atcT Gables in Jessamine Park Byron fishes every day New Smyrpa too is a quaint old town of about one thousand natives and some number of tourists It is located on tnp Indian River about two miles from the ocean inlet When the tide rises In the ocean it forces the salt water into the Indian River and with the water comes all kinds of sea fish and animals which makes the fishing very interesting and exciting for you do not know when you throw out your bait jast what will take it Maybe a nice sea bass weighing 25 pounds or a beautiful stripped Sheephead fish pr a blower or an eel or perhaps an Jhnb cent shark may cut yOUr line above the sinker and leave you with your pole in hand The Spaniards also settled New Smyrna Forts convents Indigo vata and canals here that were built may years ago and the immense shell mouada indicate that there was a prehistoric race dwelt here even before the Indians roamed this country There are miles and acres pt shell mounds here twenty feet deepo trouble to have the finest roads to be made They are as smooth and hrdas plank floors never any mud and very little dust 0Mr and Mrs Crpake andinyself

Appellate Courts Decision Lebanon Enterprise The opinion of the court of appeals in the Muhler Wathen Kobert cases onj appeal from the Marion circuit court was re ceved the first of the week These two cases are sent back for another trial but only on the single ground that Judge Thurman was m error in holding the affidavit filed by Mr Wath en insufficient to authorize his retiring from the bench and turning over toa attcommissionedssworn a Pteeof cases in is not legally disqualified however much he might like in particular cases to evade the performance of a disagreeable duty When an affidavit is filed and motion made for a special judge he alone must pass upon the legal sufficiency of the affidavit His inclination on one side will urJfe him to vacate the bench and escape ithe responsibility while the obligation of his oath on the other side demands that lice des egard his inclmar tion and try the case if LEGAL cause to the contrary has not been shown A party can make any charges he desires against the judge in such an affi davit knowing that the of the judge are sealed and that hecan not either demand evidence of the truth of the charges or offer proof of thtjr falsity according to the law as laid down by the court of appeals every statemei t in such an affidavit whether true or false must be taken as true for the purpose ot determining the duty Of the presiding judge S These cases were reversed on the ground that though Judge Thurman proved his impartiality by correctly applying the law on the trial his refusal to vacate the bench was of itself an error The court in discussing the evidence which whs taken down m shorthand and copied verbatim for the aImakes it clear that if the defends or their agents sold the barrel of whis key to Mr Lee with the knowledge and intention that it was to be divided on their premises between the contribut ing members of the club or with the intention that any one of their agents or employees should assist in the distribution they are guilty of 1 viola tion of the statute and just as fully liable to the penalties declared as if thev were men without wealth influ ence or high social standing To the layman it would appear that the defendants are to use a slang ex pression up against it for the court of appeals has said Jn substance that the judgment of conviction was right but should have been rendered by another judge It is a mistake forrany one to suppose that there is different rule of conduct for the wealthy and powerful from that to be applied to the humblest citizen When the tribunals charged with the duty of enforcing the laws en acted by proper authority cease to apply them to all alike and fail to regard the fundamental principle of good govern ment that before the law all men nre equal it will be an evil day for our country The Enterprise is proud to sayt that in this district at least that day has not yet and it trusts will never come It is time that men cease the cry of persecution as a defense to a charge of having violated the law if a person indicted be guilty the enforcement of the law is no persecution and if he be innocent a fair trial on the evidence will vindicate him and also the law which is for the protection of the inno guilty cent as well as the punishment of the In these eases ad in all others brought shownhlmseffand impartial in enforcing the

ready for shipment to Oyster Bay The cartoons and there must be 25 or 30 of them that have had places of prominence on the tops of the low boofkshelves in the library doubtless will have places of equal prominence in the big den in the Oyster Bay home These cartoons are prized by Mr Roosevelt above many of his more costly belongings They are among the few presents he has consented to receive The cartoon which has held the spe cial place of honor is one showing an old farmer representing the American Cat Is Devoted His Old N EXAMPLE of devotion seldom A witnessed in a dumb aniiial is every day by an old white cat that strays about the corner of New Jersey avenue and C street Born in the old Baltimore Ohio railroad station tDat occupied that site for years Torn the untamed feline has never left the corner and even while the old structure was being razed he managed to make his bed in the building until the last wall had been pulled down Now that the site has been completely filled up and graded leaving no vestige of the once famous depot this old cat still remains and makes his home beneath the chair of the switchman at this crossingI At night om hIs friend when the last car

His Favorite Author It was to this farmer Mr Roosevelt once pointed when he said in effect that he could not stand for a second elective term as president because that man wouldnt like it The president has declined to re ceive any gifts of great intrinsic value sinc he has come into high office He has had given him which cannot buy at least from him Authors have sent their books with their autographs inscribed upon the blank page These almost invariably have been taken grateully and inmost cases there has been a return gift of a copy ef one of the Roosevelt books generally The Wilderness HunterThousands of valuable presents have been offered that have been declined courteously but firmly There have been some things which have come from monarchs of an innocu ous kindand they have been taken in the spirit in which they were given King Mpneliks gift was innocuous as long as it was kept behind bars It consisted of two lions which are now in the Washington zoo- f President

this feline creature Is so strongly attached to the surroundings that he cannot be induced to forego an uncomfortable home for luxurious quarters uptown During the recent snowstorm that lasted two or three days said Mr Nichols the cat was late one morning in reporting at the little platform where the chair is located and he was just preparing to go down the street to bring him out of his loft when he heard the wanderer caning for help He was stranded in a pile of snow and trying vainly to resume his journey to the favorite spot on the corner House Parliamentarian Longer Shy lASHER

at lilly rate that a preponderance of the testimony in favor oj any ruling by the chair can always be found to rest on Hinds csldeJn any controversy Recently Mr Hinds wrote whatlhb declares was a

according to the sched tile that the special train consisting of a locomotive an empty baggage car and the regally Equipped private car Priscilla should stop for three quarters of an hour at tlayvlIle June tpeGreatcupant had provided for a wait of only five minutes It is a matter of record however that for 45 minutes the offi cial train waits at the lonesome little s I station on the Indiana prairie What 1 happened in those 45 minutes is now for the first time given to the public After the Great Manwho was no Mr4k P Trunk line which joins the At antic ocean with the great lakes I after the Great Man had jaken a per functory turn about the little station rahd had asked a few stereotyped a of the station agent he went thePrIscI11asiVhiteandg down to a game of solitaire Being a fortyrwas fond of solitaire But he was still less fond of the thoughts engendered by a twoweeks solitary tour of inspection through the flat drab ma lariat country of the middle west After prolonging his luncheon to the latest possible hour and extracting all JsingleIf a longing toexchange his goldandwhite grandeur for eVen the pleb jan red Velvet of a day coach where he could observe the vagaries of country bridal couples and invite the confidence of smudgy small boys with prize pack ages of magenta lozensres tt It was while the Great Man was indulging In these vain visions much tb the dettrlmeht of his success at colt theserwords spoken in a shrill little voice apparently just at his back 1IIIfyou please sir are you the Ding i The momentthat elapsed before the Great plan could whirl about in the dl rection of the voice was long enough for several detached bits of Alice in Wonderland to flit through hi brain What he saw however when faced around was simply a very solemn vetYpale little girl who stood with one thin hand on the door knob and one small scarletstockinged leg well advanced while her Hazel eyes gleamed at him anxiously from under a fuzzy brown hat Really said the Great Man good immoredly VI dont know why yes now that you speak of itI suppose Yam a sort of king At least I believe newspapers call me a railroad king Wont you come here and sit down The small girl shut the door and slid to his side in a gait that com bined a hop and a glide I suppose dt isnt just the thing to sit down in The presence of royalty she said as she perched on the edge of a big tapes tryicushioned Turkish chair But you see I am a princess myselfa fairy prlncessshe added with an em her fluffy yellow locks Indeed The Alice in Wonder and memories suddenly revived Thats very interesting and I dont like to doubt the word of a lady Butt all the fairy princesses of my ac quaintance have had wings and spangles and carried star tipped andsandand all thaV concluded- e Great Man vaguely But that was because you saw hem during the performance said he small girl clasping her thin little i fingers over one scarlet stockinged knee I wear wings and spangles and carry a wand myself in the evenings Saturdaymatinees explained in the Golden Crown opera company and if I wore my fairy wouldjai But you know said the small girl you dont look a bit like the kings of my acquaintance They all wear gilt crowns and velvet and er mine robes and carry scepters And besides you are a great deal too young t iThe Great Man laughed I am afraid you have me there at least I mean I suppose you are right said he 1ing back in his chair and regarding Princess Iris with twinkli- ngteyes I dont look my part But then I am not performing now my self We are In the same boatthat II c Oh you neednt bother to explain said the small girl I understand slang Only I dont talk it myself now except when 1 forget because the Queen doesnt like it Sothere Is a queen too is there said the Great Man the mercy lines deeperiDeartire royal family Yes there is a queen andsheis not to be laughed at said the child gravely In fact its partly about her Ive come II wanted an audi nce IWell really said he man new 1r f cusly I should like to accommodate you but =looking at his watchmy train leaves in about one minute and I dont see exactly how I can Oh my said the small girl cant you even make your own train wait while a princess talks to you 1 t Well since you put it that way I suppose I can said the Great Man pressing an electric button Then as the black porter appeared listened deferentially to his whispered order and glided out again the royal personage continued Very likely I dont get half the fun out of being a king that I might You see I sometimes forget the extent of my power Ah yes thats thevery thing Ive come to speak to you about said the child II hope you will excuse me If I hurt your feelings she went on gently but sometimes its necessary you know Upon her hearers assurance that he would endeavor fto bear up under cen sure the small girl continued Its like this I spose youve such a big kingdom you dont get a chance to straighten out all the things that go wrong And something has gpne wrong now has it Yes as wrong as can be But re assuringly of course I understand you couldnt have known about it Its the train to Washita It was put down on the timetable you know to go at four this afternoon and we all came down to the station to get it And how they say it may be two hours before it arrives so instead of getting to Washita at halfpast six It will be long after nine and well be too late to give our performance And that will be a very dreadful loss to the Queen Hows thatIsaid the Great Man One night cant make very much dU- ferenceOh but this Is Saturday night and the whole house was sold long ago Washitas the lest show town in the state you knov and the Queen was counting on the money You see its been a dreadfully ppor season in the profession and even the Queen has lost heaps And just now when she found out wed be late her face got all white and she hung onto my hand oh so hard and said Here the child stopped suddenly and digging her little fists into the chair blinked very fast and caught her breath Then It qu te upsets me to think of It she said Jin a muffled little voice The Queen said that she waS afraid that the company would have to disband now and the seasons hardly begun Two great tears rolled down the white little face The man stirred uneasily There was a deep line between his eyebrows That is hard luck he exclaimed But then with an affected hardi hood after all shes only a play queen you know and I presume shes well roughed it before Anyway youll probably all find nice engage ments soon and be just as well off as you aTe now How can you say that the child flashedout Of course we cant be so happy with anyone else There never was anyone half so sweet and kind and beautiful as she is And we all love har dearly And besides If the rest are makebelieves she isnt she is a real queen all the time The chi d had risen Her shabby hat had fa len to the floor and her big hazel eye blazed angrily out of her pale little face The next moment with a si amefaced lowering of her head she slid nearer to the Great Mans sId Iyou jmust excuse me if I hurt your feelings she said humbly The Queen wouldnt like it If she thought Id done that and on her account too but you see 1 really couldnt bear to have her called a makebelieve And now she continued I think Ill go back to the station My auntie and the Queen will be wondering where I am Wait a minute said the man drawing the child to his side I want to know more about this real Queen You know they say all the royal fam lies are connected and she may bea relative of mine No she Isnt said the small girl leaning a little shyly against the royal shoulder because she told me once that she had no relations left since her father died You see she used to live in a big palace in New York In the winter and a stons castle in New port in the summer jand she had horses and carriages diamond andand all those things But she wasnt a queen because she had then you know but they belonged to he because she was a queen Well one day her father died and they found hed lost all his money and SOni that belonged to other peor pie besides so the Queen had to go on the stage and get some money tq take care of herself and to pay back what he he borrowed you know And that was four years ago and now shes back all Mr Denbighs debts except 2000 Mr Denbigh Why whats the matter said the child half turning Aint you feeling well Your adD trembles so r Oh yes quite well Only I elt so sorry for your Queen I knew you would said the child enthusiastically Well as I told you she bald it all back except just that 2000 and this season she 1ex pected to finish It And that made her so happy because she doesnt like be- Ing a makebelieve queen and it was only on her fathers account she did it it Youre sure it was only that sJe didnt care to he famous after all said the Great Man clutching the tiny hand hard 7 r L J Why hqw queer your voice sounds said the little girl in a motherly tone Im sure you cant be feeling well or you wouldnt say such thingsI should think that being a king your self youd know that when a persons been a real queen once she wouldnt care about being a makebelieve one But thats just like men they never do understand Now there was one that the Queen knew She told me just a little about him one day when things seemed very makebelieve to her She put it in a kind of story you know but I liked her so much I knew who it was about Do you know he thought just what you did because she wouldnt marry him instead of going off for what he called aa career And hed known her ever since she was a little girl too and ought to have known better oughtnt he Yes said the Great Man huskfly I suppose he ought But you see the Queen didnt tell him aboutabout the money she was paying back And she was a great deal younger than he and beautiful with a voice that people said would make her famous and he thought that she really cared more to be a stage queen than anything Tell me dear has she still the ring that he gave her when she was a little girlDThe teenty little forgetmenot ring that she wears on a chain and often kls Buthow did you know stammered the child twisting around and staring up Into his face I never told you the rest and your eyes are so strange But the Great Man had risen and was striding rapidly up and down the car And Alice really cared for me she cares for me still he murmured While I who ought to have stood bjf her have only hindered her And now she needs help and I with all my money havent the right to help her Its too lateI can never make up for the time Ive lost I hope you dont mind said the small girl who stood as if petrified just where he had leftjher but you spoke so loud I couldnt help hearing the last And If you mean the train to WIshita it isnt too late If you could get It here in 15 minutes =and I spose thats easy for a king we could give the performance even if the curtain did ring up late Train to Washita murmured the Groat ManWhy yes of course How stupid of me as he pressed the electric button Lets see how many are there of you- Twentytwo now said the child but I dont quite And you havent had the best of fare in the hotels Well It hasnt been very bad but yesterday and today weve pretended we didnt want any lunch because we knew how things were with Never mind said the man with something like a groan I only wanted to know on account of the orders Then to the porter Ask the con here Crown opera company ductoritoostep here he said appeared and I take this special train Put the whole party In my private car Tell the engineer he must make extra time to get them there at 630 Telegraph ahead for a clear track and to Casstown for sup plies so that dinner may be served in this czar When the train is ready to start step over to the station and tell the company that the train for Washita is waiting And be sure that everything is done to make them comfortable I will follow on thereg ular express As the conductor withdrew the Great Man found himself suddenly caught in the embrace of what seemed a smallsized tornado You really mean it cried the child half sobbing Were not going to disband after all Oh I was sure from the beginning that yjm were a really truly king even if y u didnt wear a crown and velvet rcjbes Bt1twitha sudden clouding of her face you wont go away Just when the Queens coming Well you see the fact is said the Great Man setting the Princess care fully In the depths of the Turkish chair these meetings with royalty are so unusual for me that I feel hard ly prepared for another one tre same day So I think Ill follow a corn mon car And in the ask for a private the Queen morningjlll1 Why Soldiers Leave the Ajyny Four army officers sat at luncheon
