Danville Ky because of which he was forced to leave the school In an effort to recover his health he went to Henderson ville NC Upon his arrival there he assumed the principalship of a school and because of his splendid training his intellectual vigor and his ambition he established for it in a limited time 11 reputation- srivalling that of older institutions of learning in that section of the state After three months in this position however his health again began to fail 5A and his physicians peremptorily com ananded that he should cease to teach Against his will he complied and was apparently improving until about three weeks ago when his parents were notified of his illness His mother left at once for his bedside and shortly thereafter his father and brothers The boys timewas

ambition he promised to be a joy to his friends and loved ones an ornament to society and an honor to his profession- When one is taken away when but facing life one whose future js that of promise we can but think of the beau tiful words of Ingersoll as he stood by the grave of his beloved young brother He but voiced the sentiment of those who knew and cared for Leo Simms when he said He had not passed on lifes highway the stone thatmarksihe- nighest point but being weary for a moment Jay down by the wayside and using his burden for a pillow fell into that dreamless sleep that kisses down the eyelids still While yet in love with life and raptured with the world he passed to silence and pathetic dust The funeral services were conducted Monday morning at St Dominics church The following

bfthe Burley Tobacco Society at Winchester March 16 it is expected that the matter of forming the Burley pool for this year will be taken up and the details of the work decided upon It is definitely known now that the Burley Tobacco So ciety will this year submit to the people of the Burley growing counties the question of whether or not thepoolwil1 be formediIt is thought that tie work of secur ing signers to the will be secured by the county organi4tions throughthe precinct committee Each precinct in the Burley growing section is to haVe a special man appointed whose business it will be to visit every grower m his precinct and endeavor to get him to sign the contract to pool his crop If the grower does not desire to do this he will so state and the precinct committeeman will take tne amount of his acreage for a memorandum to be incorporated in his report to the county organization The various County Boards of Control will make out their reports sTifwing how much acreage is planted in tobacco how much has been signed for the pool and how many have refused tt go Jnto the pooL These county reports will be made to the district board who will then make a recapitulation of the en tire Burley section ascertaining the acreage planted the amount in the pool and the amount not willing to into the pool and upon this recapitula tion will depend the question of pool or poolJust what percentage of the entire acreage planted must be pooled before the district board will declare the pool formed and in force has not yet been determined but it is said upon good authority that the percentage of a normal crop must necessarily be a large one It is believed by members of the board that there will be about 125 per cent of the normal crop planted this spring To control the situation and to be sure of peace and harmony among the growers it is necessary that a very great percentage of the crop be sIgned up before the pool is declared to be in force and this the members of the board say will be done without Jail before ever tne pool is formed The question of when the canvass of the growers of the Burley section will be started is to be definitely decided at the next meeting of the district board Members of the board say that this work will begin just as soon as the to bacco on hand now in the Various ware housesot the country which has been sold has been deliveredand

Moines Iowa for fraudulent use of the mails they must feel a poignancy of regret that the law is so cruel and un kind ti Mere money making is far from our greatest ambition If the principle thatI shapes develops and expands our policy was not influenced and directed by a principle much higher much greater than that of mere money m eking we would have little hope for the future This echoes alie from the first to the last word These men who have made millions pay the very lowest wages They put themselves forward as philan thropists while trying to undermine the honest merchant They teach honest people to practice fraud and deceit among their fellow men as is readily evidenced by this paragraph also from their catalog As many people especially mer chants business houses townspeople and others do not care to have others know where or from whom they buy their goods as many people object to having the name of the shipper spread across every box or package so that when it is unloaded at the station or express office every one can see what they are getting and where they buy it to protect all those who care for this protection and make it possible for you to order yout goods from uswith no fear of any one learning at the railroad station express office or elsewhere what you bought or where you bought it our name and address will not ap pear on any hex package tag en velope or article of merchandise In the name of Honesty Justice and Truth let us ask WHY it this method of purchasing goodsis honest just the truth as to how and where they were purchased should be concealed

t The office of Judge is not a political aaaet for any party in the performance oT Its duties the incumbent should be so far as possible free from obligation either personal or political Whi e it VM a custom almost universal for par Ltte8to nominate candidates for Judicial office when qualified men of different Jtyaffiliations are seekin election it is that the Judge can not in his official conduct serve the interests of any party Indeed in inany places as in New York where party spirit runs high it is of common occurrence for both parties to unite in nominating the same candidate for Judge thus avoiding the bitterness of partisan strife which naturallytends to affect the administration of the courts tor a time atleast after the successful candidate emerges from it What are the present

startled the other day to find the girl lying in a sort of a bed which she had formed by burrowing into the ground He notified police headquarters and Sergt Lee and James Barger took the girl from her hiding place She was thinly clad in a ragged dress with scant underclothing and was covereti with feed bags She was so weak that she moyed with dif J the Bpy Was Startled to Find a Girl Under the Porcht HerIsh ulders The girl was taken to the hospital where she was washed put in clean clothing and given medical treatment The physicians regard her as weak minded She cries most of the time but at intervals talks rationally She insists that she has lived under the stoop for five months creeping out at night to obtain food by stealing cans of preserved fruit bread and meat from houses in the neighborhood Her name is Grace Powers and her father John Powers a laborer was in the hospital under treatment for burns when she was received there Shortly before her disappearance the girl was arrested for stealing a gold watch which she gave to a male admirer The watch was returned and she was not prosecuted It is thought that the girls arrest so frightened her that she sought a hiding place under the stoop and con tinued to live there despite the cold weather Her power of endurance howeYer was well spent when the boy chasing a cat discovered her and she would not have survived much

boy in the family All real live boys pass through a period when they would rather be a bold nimrod than pres ident of a bank My friends boy has an exaggerated case and would rather bd Davy Crockett than president of two banks This boys mother has always been terror stricken at the thought of her son having a gun but flesh is only mortal and spirit ceases at last to withstand the nerves Hence after having been teased and importuned fourteen times a day durng a period of five years for a gun both parents gave up in sheer exhaustion and got the lad a rifle for Christmas 4 His mother ti1 cried some over- it and knew he J would be shot L just as all moth ers do and the father took the son out in the back yard and made him swear across a baseball bat and a shinny club that he would never never be Iways1would loaded You see Frank admonished the paternal ancestor it Is just when you think it isnt loaded that it is and then somebody has to pay funeral ex penses so the boy promised and be gnu to put Eagle Eye the Red Sc6ut on the blink for shooting straight He- rigged up a feather in a tin can nd go4 so accurate on the trigger that he could bite the end of the feather off inch by inch a la William Tell and ne er touch the picture of the tomato on the can at all But why dont you shoot some rabbit for the table 1 asked father at thofirst snow fall You know how we all like fresh rabbit Frank Why do t you go outand do something wo th while 1 Of course it is dead easy for you to get seven or eight do en rabbits the way you shoot but we dont want that many Bring home a half dozen That will be plenty paddy admitted the youth that nig went hunting rabbits today butt I couldnt see any Ills eyesight continued to be bad torseveral days It wasnt a question of hitting em it was a question of finding em Finally some migrating sportsman tipped it off to Frank where the rabbits lived Theres about a million of em up there in the gras he told the lad and if you get up early in the morn ing you will find them all at the hotel for breakfast That night when Frank retired he set the alarm clock for four next morning Father came in late from down town dead tired He heard the clock strike midnight Then he heard It strike one oclock After that he awoke and heard it strike one again but he didnt know whether it was half past one or half past three any more than the rest of us do when we hear it so he turned over swore softy and tried to go to sleep again ust as we all do He had almost drifted into the em brace of Morpheus when Bang Tingaling Brrrrrrrr Bang B rrrrrrrrr went that alarm In Franks room Then the father heard the clock gasp like a chicken when you choke it where it wears beads and he knew that mother had flown to the rescue But the clock bolted and let out an other string as long as five cents worth of passepartout Mother said Pshaw real solemn like and stopped the squawk againfor a minute By the time the clock was choked Into submission father and mother were both wide awake Each tried to go to sleep again and neither could So they got up They had breakfast at 7 oclock and uDld the boy get any rabbits you ask I Why of course notThen the alarm rang he grunted turned over In bed went to sleep again and had to be called eleven times to keep him from being late to sqhool But hes going to ee some rabbits some day all right And then look out for rabbit stew at his house oooNot Much Its not much to say for a man that he never had an enemy says the New ton Ivan Journal You could write that over a cabbage head It Would be

his lug gage was in it Dolling had seen to that of course But he had got most t of the things wrong that a man with a thoroughly efficient servant can get j wrong He had received his ticket from Dolling and he knew not where he had laid it Dolling had filled his matchbox but he had lost it His lit erature for the journey had strayed Q over the seats and begun to occupy some of the floor His hands went in ceWhywith Dolling he said to himself bit teriyuGot to make a fool of my self again as usual Have to pay again I suppose Hangl I The train moved out of the station he picked up handfuls of papers from the floor and deposited them in the hatrack He settled himself in one corner and fitted his pipe Some men would have found the matches first but that would not have been charac- terIstic of him At that moment a tall and pretty girl came down the corridor of the train and deliberately en ls tered his compartment Jle did not wish to be ruder than was absolutely necessary Madam he said this is a smok- ingI compartment I Yes she said in a soft and mu sical voice with a foreign accent that well became it that is why I am come I was in a compartment of the second class I take my cigarette they say I cannot Very well then I go out He wondered if he could remind ber that this was not a compartment of the second class and decided quite definitely that he could not At the same time be was angry He had been butof temper over the cause of his journey He was to travel 120 miles in order to be treated like a baby and rated bya termagant Why could not the old woman let him live his life in his own way If from a weak sense of duty he took this absurd journey to see her why did he not get a compartment to himself J Other men always got compart ments to themselves He had tipped the guard too The thing was scandalous Women with secondclass tick ets had no business in firstclass compartments They had no business in smoking compartments anyhow Yet he simply had not the strength of mind to turn her out Strength of mind was what he called it The pretty girl unperturbed lit her cigarette and watched her fellowpas senger with an amusedexpression He put his hat up in the rack and assumed a traveling cap Then hE be gan to search for the matchbox through innumerable pockets He was starting on the fifteenth pocket when the pretty girl had the cheek to speak to him You look for the matches she asked I have some if you please She handed him a box Thank you very much he said He looked at the girls face for the first timerand noted her friendly eyes and her pleasant whimsical expression Having taken her matches he felt as though he had eaten her salt and must make amends el hope he said you did not think me very rude when you came in here Sometimes ladies do not see the no tice on the window and afterwards it- t inconveniences them to find they are in a smoking carriage JNo said the girl 41 did not think were rude but I thought you were angry Sbme things had been happen- Ing to annoy you perhaps You are one of those gentlemen who lose things is it not so Lose things 1 he said Ive lost pretty nearly everything Ive lost my matches and Ive lost my ticket What Im going to do when they come to examine the tickets I dont know Will you look in that little pocket of your overcoat she said He obeyed and drew the ticket from the pocket in question It was a ticketpocket That was probably why he had not looked there before Thanks awfully he said I think you must be a mindreader I suppose you couldnt help me to find my matches too 1 What did you smoke before you began that pipe I had a cigarette just as I was start- Ing I had forgotten some papers and had to open that bag to put them in I remember it distinctly but which pocket I put the box back into t cant remember One does these things unconsciously The box is not in any of your poc- ketsIf you will unlock the bag you will find it on the top with the papers He opened the bag and it was even as she had said t They chatted of many subjects and at every turn of the conversation he was fascinated by her simplicity and iiaivete She was most surprisingly and sweetly ignorant and had not the least desire to be taught But she was so pretty and her look at him so honest and friendly that he didnot think of her as ignorant He thought of her as a gentle unspoiled woodland creaturewoodland mind not rustic As the train slowed down Dolling appeared at the door of the com art ment and began to get his masters baggage together Lqave that alone said the young great trouble Besides when one Is very poor and Tery plain one must cultivate the virtues one has otherwise no raison detre While to be sympa thetic to me to whom she is so In debt Debt he cried interrupting her suddenly with all the holy horror of one who personally is never out of it Debt Of course you must never say anything cried Mrs de Rutsen qiiickly as if In a momentary weakness she had betrayed a confidence You must promise me that You surprise me he moaned now thoroughly disheartened You sure prise me dreadfully i Letitia is full of surprises she said as a parting shot That evening as she was going toI oed she lopked in Letitias room as was her custom There is Spniethin I dont like about Mr Meredith she said inno as they were sitting over the Dont you was all Letitia could tJlookafraid hes a very immoral man dThen she told her several UPIagainsteverything we hear she explained as she kissed her No answered Letitia almost under her breath You are quite happy arent VDU cried Mrs de Rutsen as she saw Leti tias white face I believe you lafve been crying Oh no I havent cried Lelitla wiping her eyes You dont know how I love you heriorThank you cried L tita throwing herarnis around her friends neck and sobbing as if her heart would break The end of course is apparent A few more conversations between t em- both and Letitia wrote a letter which settled the matter as far as she was concerned As for Mr Meredith after what Mrs de Rustin hadrtold him her definite refusal relieved him more than he could say They never saw ei IItand since then Letitia has becQme more infatuated than ever Perhaps she sometimes thought to herself to allay the loneline3s of heart MI should not have been happy with him I am PerhaPSbetter as I am As for Mrs de Rutsen she thinks Letitia an extremely lucky woman To a friend who once pondered why Letitia had never married she said Years ago a man once asked her I did everything in my power to bring them together but she refused him You see she is so happy wIth me And I find her so useful As for Letitia she has become much olderold with all the tragedy not of 8 older but of still remaining young Her life stretches out before her dreary mpnotonous commonplace Without any sun whatever or for that matter witirrfut much shade Possibly it is not so utterly ordinary as it appears to oatsiders but there are no roses for her to gather tiy the way Her life Is filled with dull uninteresting duties and her genius for selfsacrifice goeson unabated If she is not very happy well after all who Is She believes shells working her way heavenward which in Its way Is something after all In any case the irony of her fate may not be so terri Me as it seems Poor Letitia MAKING PROGRESS INALASKA Government Slowly Solving Problems of Transportation The great problem in Alaska is that of transportation Every place jof pres ent importance In southeastern Alaska and southwestern Alaska is reached by steamer and the government is slowly putting in the necessary lighthouses The one railroad over the White pass is a convenient link with the upper Yukon and there are several lines in progress from the coast farther northward to the lower Yukon valley Outsiders have strange notions about Alaskan geography a project Was actually formed for building a railroad from Portland canal on the southern boundary of Alaska to Skag way ignoring inlets which penetrate a hundred miles up into the mountains and quite overlooking the vast gla ciers which come down into the sear over which no railroad could possibly- be maintained The Guggenheim interests are bullllngaroad from Va dez northward to reach copper and other mines and a rival company has constructed one mile of road out of Valdez and has one locomotive If the Yukon valley prove tbbe available for settlers some time a road will parallel the river and thus keep up the winter transit At present the winter highways in that part of the world are trails traversed only by dog sledges Soon to Be
