the secoud time and glanced eau tiously at the wisp of hair that bespoke a feminine head somewhere between the covers and the little white pillow on the four poster bedr There was no sound from the sleeper so Mandy ven tured across the room on tiptoe and raised the shades The drooping boughs of autumn foliage lay shjim meriug against the window panes and through them might be seen tile gray outline of the church Mandy glanced again toward the bed to make sure that the burst of sunlight bad not wakened the Invalid then crossed to a 1allrIckety chair laden with the discarded finery of the little circus rider Lawdy sakes she cried holding up a spangled dress admiringly Aint dat beautiful She drew near the mirror attempting to see the reflec tion of the tinsel and chiffon against her

astonishment at such a spectacle so grew Upon Mandy that she was obliged to cover her generous mouth to shut in her convulsive laughter lest It awaken the little girl in the tied She crossed to the old fashioned bureau which for many months had stood unused against the wall t The drawer creaked as she opened it4p lay away the gay span gled gown X Itll be almighty long time afore she puts onlftun

cried as she compared the size of the san dalRto that of her own rough worn t hoes She was again upon the points Qf exploding with laughter asi the church bell added a few final and more emphatic clangs to its warning I She turned with a start motioning arJain warning out of the window for the bell to be silent but the little yonthrown languidly over her head Thetlarge blue eyes opened and t

the prediction that Judge Thurman will win next November by one of the handsomest majori vties ever given a man in the counties ofrthe district will be slow to vote against 5 suchf an excellent Judge1just because a dozen disgruntled Democrats desire his roundsrQuite a number of the Republican lead ers of the district are openly for Judge Thurman not because they have be come 1lssatisfiedwlth the Republican party but because they will not begov erred by Democrats who are seeking irevenge Hundreds of Republicans refused to participate in the county con yentions and later inthe district conventions t which nominated Jjjdge Thur roans opponent for the ery simple reason that they did not warit to feel in honor bound to support 4 nominee anqiatbvwno have been trying for months to bring about a nomination 4 Congressmans Ben Johnsons nomi nation for Governor ot Kentucky by the Democratic party is being predicted by politicians in all sections of the State and with the prediction is the emphati cally expressed belief that he will win by an overwhelming majority He is Identified with no faction and when he isf nominated he will go before the peo pie with a united party behind him with a clean record and with the strong est organization ever effected in the State It will require a nominee such as Mr Johnson will make to win Kentucky is todagtih the list of doubtful States with the chances always in favor of the DemocratSwhen the party nominees are free of entangling alliances when naught can be said against the partys candidates To redeem Kentucky the Democrats must put forward their best men rmen in whom the people have th utmost conhdence Nobody realizes this more forcibly than Democratic party leaders hence the effort on the part of the leaders to nominate Congressman Johnson for GovernoriNow that Mr Johnson has said that he will be a candidate and the question of his nomination being practically set tIed the Democrats of Kentucky nca congratulate themselves upon the cer tainty of the election of a Democrat as Governor of Kentucky in 1911IIn quite a number of r orie finds a lot of appropriate mottoe or placards upon the walls where the employes

qf his way The Kentucky State Journalof which W P Walton has been editor and publisher has changed hands having been purchased by Mr J asL Newman for merly managing editor The most interesting feature connected with the change however is the fact that fob mev Gov J C W Beckham is to be come its editor Whfte Gov Beckham has spent his life in politics and in the practice of law and has at no time so far as we know been engaged in journalism he has nevertheless time and again in his writings which have been made public demonstrated that he is a virile and polished writer We doubt not that lie will as an editor be an ornament to the profession Gov Beckham is a man largeIas the Journal he should be able to do a great work for the Democratic party in Kentucky The policy of the paper w outlined in the following editorial CTo the many guesses speculations opinions surmises and prognostications theIDemocratic newspaper fighting the battles ot that party the best it can not for thE sake of putting in office men of one set over another set of men nor for the sake of evening up old scares but because at believes the triumph and assendency of Democratic pnhci pies means the greatest amount of good to the greatest number After deliberating tor some hours the jury in the Beach Hargis case brought in a verdict finding the defendant guilty and fixing his punishment at life imprisonment in the

we print itbut arrived too late for publI- cation Why should Governor Willson go to the trouble of writing out that riga m ro asareason for WqS Taylor and Crowd It would have been sufficient just to say because they are Republicans for weall know this was his intention before he was elected to do just what he has done This certainly would have been a more honest courseto take But his consti pating himself judge and jury regardless of evidence and declaring Hhem innocent sImply on his own authority is the height of egotism He insults the State and brings the law into contempt and he posing tooas the apostle of law and order He impeaches the common sense of the people Does he suppose they forget the pains Tay lor took to protect the culprits from the civil officers by the use of the soldiers Or how his party howled about the persecution Y of Youtsey when he was brought into court on a cot when on the advice of his party he was feign ing sickness And now to claim that he alone is guilty Absurd If that were true the Taylor Crowd knew it henas wPJl as now It is ludicrous to see him assuming the character of a Missionary of Peace Khe good book sayflThere is no peace to the wickedi I doubt if there is peace of conscience to any of that crowd even though they do possess pardons and I would not like to stand in their shoes In view of Governor Willsons course I think his name should be changed from Augustus E Willson to Disgustus E Willson It is most appropriate J 5 TRUTH PLEASANT GROVE Mr and Mrs S C Vanarsdale haye returned after a ten days visit to Colum bus Ohio

Johns N Ftrher is now an interesting experiment taking shape In Newfoundland which promises to be of special Importance to temperance workers the world over It is nothing less tha to put the city of Sl Johns under theloca option or persuasive law known In Canada as the Scott act arid by this means bring about virtual prohibition because while the Importation of spirituous liquors will still be possible their sale will be prohibited except for medicinal or mechanical purposes In 1872 the local option law was first enacted in Newfoundland and the initial move for Its enforcement was made by the hamlet of Bregus being started appropriately cnougllhYl man named Waterhouse This luw provided that any township could by a twothirds vote decree against the sale of liquor therein though the imp orta ion of liquor from abroad or from other sections for the personal use of residents was still allowejl The consumption of liquors of all qualities in the colony in 1871 was 21261G gal loris The population of the colony theI was 161374 so the consumption was 132 gallons per capita annually The consumption of liquors In 1U08 was 153427 gallons The population now Is estimated at about i43000 It being 220P82 by the census of 1901 so that the consumption oit liquor Is only 63 gallons per capita annually or exactly onehalf of what it was 37 years ago The drink statistics of Newfoundland as compared with other conn tries show it to be the soberest coun try in the world Practically the whole Island except St Johns Is under local option for the temperance sentiment gradually became strong enough to wipe out the twothlrds clause andsub stitute a simple majority vote and as the years passed the spread of local option grew general If local option should be carried InSt Johnsit would mean not alone the closing of the saloons there but a stoppage of the use of liquor In the rest of the Island except by importing it from abroad as It is now obtained almost wholly from St Johns Fifty years ago Newfoundlanders were much addicted to the use of intoxicants In those days every vessel owner among the coast fishermen laid In a puncheon of rum 100 gallons for winter consumption as regularly as he duct any article of food If he was still more promlnent ho brought home two puncheons This 114 for was used ts liberally then as soft drinks L 0 U ard now ttvery man employed about his vessel or premises took dalljT his three horn of liquor He started with his morning when he began work had a leveler at 11 oclock or before noon and a sundown about 5 p mj while many took a nightcap alsoi before going to bed Every day at the hours namedal JIwithand each man would himself to his nip and his grog bit as the bread was called Fishermen took jars of rum In their boats when they went mat fishing its they take kettles of tea and It was not unusual for themtoo drink a quart a day without hurt to themselves Every sailor took his gallon jar of ruin to the ice fields in the seal hunt cf the early spring and the ship itself was supplied on an equally generous scale Shipwrights stipulated In their agreements that their daily wae wad to beso many shillings and aj bottle of rum Black smiths and sallmakers made similar contracts i r Yet nobody ever got really drunk onStafter Christmas and which was the occasion chosen for sealers to secure their places on board their ships Then men flocked to the principal sealing ports from all sections of the island After signing articles wittl his own shipper each man made the rounds of the town asking other skippers for places who knowing the practice would express themselves as unable to glee a berth but would ask each to take a glass of liquor By evening they were ail usually fighting drunk and a disturbance was not uncommon SAD SAD
