Spent For Defense Special to The News IRVINE Ky Dec 23Mrs Luella Hargis mother of the defendant and widow of Judge Hargis was on the stand again for crossexamina tion when court convened this morning Efforts were made by the prosecution to bring out to what extent Mrs Hargis was using the money from the estate of Judge Jim Hargis- to defend his murderer instead of prosecuting him and also to show that not one dollar had been spent by her to erect a monument over the grave of the dead feudal chieftain Mrs Hargis was not permitted to answer the question with reference to the defense of her son but was allowed to relate the facts about the tombstone She said she had not neglected the grave but was waiting un spring to erect a handsome headstone The casket in which he vas buried cost 1500 and she intended to build a monument comme nsurate with that The plans had already been drawnTuesdays Testimony Beach Hargis was placed on the witness stand in his own behalfat the afternoon session of court and detailed the killing of his father in a dramatic fashion He said he was just past twentytwo years of age this being the first time his age has ever been given authoritatively He said in response to a question by Attorney Young that he was drinking on the day of the killing He said he went to his fathers store on that day because he had been told by his mother that his father intended to go to Winchester that day He said Jie did not go to the store until after the departure of the train and would not have gonethere had he known his father had failed to leave town He went to thestoret- he said to meet Ms uncle Elbert Hargis He said he had absolutely no Jnaclice toward hit father Says Father Abused Him He said his father had abused him for years and often struck and beatI him and on several occasions attempted to shoot him The testimony of Mrs Hargis was largely corroborative of that of herI son and the line of interrogation was almost identical with that of the boy especially regarding the scene in the Hargis home with reference to the asaults on the boy by the father and of the gang of armed men kept by Jim Hargis She said she had never known of the son being disobedient to the fath er but that the latter treated the boy in a cruel and inhuman manner She said the will of Jim Hargis was law in his own household and that not withstanding the fact thatshe did not approve of the manner in which the son was raised she was powerless to prevent it Begged Him Not to Kill Boy She said that on one occasion she saw her husband take a pistol from the boy and level it at his head and threaten to blow his brains out and believed he would have done it had it not been for Mrs Day grandmother of the defendant and herself both ofwhom begged him not to do it She said however that following the beating administered by the fath er on that occasion the boy was in bid for several days Mrs Hargis could not recall on crossexamina tion that Judge Hargis had ever chastised Beach except When the lat ter was drinking and never knew of him abusing other members of the family even when he himself was 107 toxicatedSays Boy Was Hard Drinker She said the boy drank much during the six years prior to the killing James Isom a negro was the only other witness introduced by the de fense during the day He said he was standing in front of the store at the time of the shooting and saw the father and son ina struggle just before the shooting He had worked for the Hargis fam ily and the Day family for years He created much amusement by saying that at times he was a preacher and at other times worked for a living Other Witnesses on Stand The first witness today was F Lyon a clerk in the Hargis store at Jackson His testimony was about the same as that given on

the National League of Republican Clubs arid re ceived suggestions which will be given serious consideration respecting new fields of future usefulness for that organization The two have been friends since their college days when they were classmates Mr Hammond was emphatic in saying that he was not a candidate for either the cabinet the diplomatic corps or any other position under the new administration- Mr Taft said he had written Senator Knox inviting him to come to Augusta within the next two or three weeks if he could at which time a cabinet conference would be held In this connection Mr Taft said he be lieved he was beginning to see where so may cabinet rumors came from The publishing of a name with the in formation that its possessor was be ing seriously considered for

most complete mystery so far as any offi cial admission can be obtained sur rounds the destination of the battleship Maine which left Norfolk under sealed orders Neither the state nor the navy de partment officials will make any statement on the subject any more than to say thai the vessel has gone on a cruise and they will not deny or affirm rumors that were current that the ship is bound for any duty at or in the vicinity of Venezuelan waters The American government is without any naval representation in that immediate section and should an outbreak against the existinggov ernment occur such American inter ests as may exist in the ports of La Guaira Porto Cabello and Mara caibo would have to appeal to the navies of foreign nations for help It has been the belief of the state department that the feeling manifested in such a forceful manner in Caracas last week would develop into something more serious resulting in the formation of a government with a new president at its head In such case it would be desirable to have at hand a war vessel for any duty that she might be called upon to perform Because of the distance of Curacao from Venezuela the state department is without communication even with its consuls in Venezuela it having no diplomatic representationexcept after considerable delay As the battle ship Maine is equipped with wireless telegraphy this affords a ready means of communication with the United States if necessary GARFIELD MAKES DENIAL Says He Is Not Dark Horse In Ohio Senatorial Contest Washington Dec 22 Secretary Garfield of the

without any foundation for the rumor that the name has been considered seriously I have heard of no effort being made to put my name in nomination The situation in Ohio Is peculiar and I believe that there Is real doubt as to who will win out In the northern part of the state the friends of Mr Burton declare with assurance that he will win while Mr Tafts friends In the southern part of the state

order business is an interesting chapter in our commercial history The spread of the crazefor it must be classed as suchresembles that of am ordinary epidemic against which no precaution is taken The disease has until very recently been allowed to spread without even quarantine regu- lationst But from present indications Its decline will be as rapid as was its rise The idea of selecting goods from a catalogue containing pictures of the articles and then ordering the articles thus selected by mail was the direct result of the failure of the business end of the grange movement the grange store writes Richard A Haste ila Maxwells Talisman Not so many years ago but before the telephone the rural routes and the interurban electric lines had brought the town and the farm into the present close relations there existed in the rural communities an active against townsfolk generally prejudiceI tail merchant in particular a middleman and wholly unneces sary He was looked upon as a human drone a nonproducer and as such sot entitled to any fixed place in the economic scheme of civilization As the working bees every fall when the first frosts come to blight the flow en cast the drones from the hive so tie middleman was to be cut out of the equation of trade eliminated from the problem and through the grange store the farmer would deal directly with the manufacturer Millions of dollars would be thus saved to the workers fcj this short cut across the commercial Itld The grange store would buy the produce of the farm and in turn sell to the farmer the essentials of life with out profit either going or coming In carrying out this simple scheme tine grange not being acquainted with the mercantile business employed agents to buy goods for the grange Btore and the store was then run by a mired mana mdn of more or less ex perience in handling retail trade but who had no interest in the business He was simply a hired man One of these supply agents was a Inn the name of which now stands second if not first among the catalogue looses of today This firm if I am met mistaken was then located in Mil Yankee and its business was to supply the grange stores of the middle west with goOdsto gawinto the market and hay as cheaply as possible for its prIn eipals For a few years the grange store nourished There was much interest manifested in this new trade toy It was boldly asserted that the day of the middleman the retail merchant ha pissed But like all complicated ma chines run by hired men it got out of order and then stopped The band ed farmers found that instead of say tag money by means of the grange store they had actually lost money The grange stores were accordingly closed and the stockholders charged up the little loss to experience and turned to the ever

theYeaiJwhen there isa Christmas fell in the air materialism is more apparent than ever It is in such cold contrast to all the suggestions and memories that linger around this great Christian celebration that the mind would turn away from it if that were possible But the cold and incompre hensible fact is thrust upon us and that too in the name ofmorality Not very Jong ago a little boy went running home from school in great distress He had been told by his teacher that Santa Claus was a myth a fable an invention nothing better than a lie invented for the express purpose of deceiving young peqplej and the inference was that his father and mother and all his friends were involved ina conspiracy to deceive him and make him the victim of fraud The little fellow was very much hurt and it was days before he could be reassuredbefore he could be persuaded to resume his in nocent belief in Santa Claus and in the innocent imaginings on which the beautiful legend depends Now what was at the bottom of this proceeding but the grossest and most hideous materialism the sort that is manufactured in the cheap laboratories of our pseudoscient ists Why should those who have charge of the education of the com ing generation be affected by it 7 Why should a schoolteacher es pecially a woman strive to warp the tender minds of her pupils by train ing them up in the ways of material ism The whole thing is a mystery to the farmer and a mystery it will al ways remain A hundred explana tions will not explain it nor will a pretended love for truth make it less ross It is to be supposed that hundreds perhaps thousands of schoolteachers up and down the land are at this moment engaged in trying to make the period of child hood as commonplace and as dismal as the youth of apes and gorillas They are trying to suppress not only imagination but belief itselfand along with belief the possibility of faithIt is a pity that there should be any groveling in this bright and beautiful world but so it is and the grovelers seem to be in the majority Greed grows with groveling and some men have a positive genius for it Witness the millions that they are piling up to no good end and for no great purpose These millions speak well for their greedif anything can speak well greed and this is the only tribute that will ever be paid to them that they succeeded well in what they started out to do As witnesses to their success they can call the ghosts of ruined men hungry women and starving children and there will be no one to dispute their testimony Such is materialism in its commonest form and in its coars est aspect Do these people believe in Santa Claus Do they believe in Fairies Have they any intellectual ideals on which their minds can repose Alas no they prefer facts to the higher truths they have been brought up in a school in which the imagination is choked and stifled they have never had time to give way to any dreams save the nightmare of business If Santa Claus could give them money that they hadnt earnedifwhat he gave them were clear profitsome good Fairy should touch the lips of their women folk so that diamonds and pearls should be scat tered broadcast when they talked then and only then there would be a most hearty belief in the ideal truths of youth and we should have the greatest campaign in behalf of the ideal that the world has ever seen It is true that the farmer has come to the age when he is rather shy about hanging up his stocking along with those of the rest of the children not because he is afraid he will find it empty on Christmas morn ing but because he would rather see the children receive what might be given to him He has never been able to under stand the motives of those who are such sticklers for cold facts and the naked truth and he more than sus pects that such as they may have are intended to be disagreeable or more intensely selfish than the de sire to disturb the happy and innocent dreams of little children But such gentle reader is thenature and purpose of those who have no faith and no belief in the supernatural and who laughs to scorn the creations of the imagination of the race Such are the materialists who go about de stroying legends that embody the highest forms of truth the very es sence of beauty The world has been vexed with vast hordes of these creatures since the birth of the Sa vior Many of them seem to be good people and numbers of them are shining lights in the various churches that are scattered up and down the earth They may be known by their long faces and their wolfish desire 1 1 to make youth and innocence unhappy They have long ago sent their Inaginationand t he memories ot their childhood fluttering away into darkness the darkness of lim boas if they were nothing more than loathsome bats It is all very pitiful it is something to weep over On the other hand there is nothing truer or more wholesome or more far reac 1i g or more educative than creations of a sane and healthy imag ination The legend of Santa Claus is true for the reason that it connects the childish mind with the mysteries of religion and is a long step in the direction of real belief And now the farmer wishes for old and young the merriest Christ mas and the happiest New Year the world has ever seen He hopes that the materialists will never be able to destroy in the minds of the children the budding faith in things unseen the kindling belief in things beyond their knowledge he hopes that San ta Claus will come to them while they sleep and t hat real Fairies will dance in their innocent dreams I Joel Chandler Harris in Uncle Rem ussThe Home Magazine for De cember WARNING AGAINST OYSTER ADULTERATION Prof Scovell Calls Attention to Violation of Kentucky Pure Food Law Prof M A Scovell Director of the Kentucky Agricultural Experi ment Station calls attention to a ruling by the State Food Inspection Division with reference to the adul teration of oysters It is as follows For the information and guidance of the wholesale and retail dealers in oysters and others concerned Paragraph 1 of Section 4of the pure food law of the State of Ken tucky as enacted by the General As

girl or woman who listens to the groans of husband or brother about his derby hat being ruined by brushing will win favor by telling him to use a soft hat brush or a piece of crape to keep it clean

FOR FYfRY BED Startling Revelation of the Lack of Accommodations For Con = Sumptives Fifteen thousand beds and 600 000 patients or 400consumptives rof every bed is a statement made today by the National Association for the Study and Prevention of Tu berctil sis in its investigation as to the need of beds for destitute con sumptives in the United States Gathering statistics from every State in the country and from every hospital in which any provision what ever is made for tuberculosis patients it has ben found that the total number of beds provided both by public and private resources is less than 15tOOO Over against these figures the Na Association for the Study and Preventiopof Tuberculosis has placed the fact that there are according- to the estimate of the United States Bureau of the Census at least 600 000 living cases of tuberculosis in this country and that at least 200 000 persons die from this disease every year That Striking Fact The most striking fact emphasized by the investigation is that while the lack of beds for all classes of consumptives is so manifest throughout the country the number of beds needed for advanced cases is far greater than the number needed for all the other stages put together Of the 15000 beds at present available for all classes of consumptives less than 5000 are for advanced cases Computing that there are at least 200000 living cases in the advanced stages of tuberculosis in the United States at the present time the need for a large number of additional beds eviedente Need For Accommodation The need for accommodation for emPhasizk anf clusion that consumption will never be eradicated until the advanced d cases of the disease are isolated either in their homes or in institu tions Dr Kock says Every case of tuberculosis should be isolated as long as bacilli are there It is not difficult the National As consul1Ptipossible to effecta cure in the latter stages of the disease and conse quently these cases should be re moved or isolated in their hopes in order to prevent the infection of per sons living with them But they can not be removed or isolated unless hospitals are provided for that pur pose and with this end in view a campaign to secure more accommodations for advanced cases 0f tu berculosis is being carried on all over the country When beds are provided it is estimAted that the deathrate

that the sound of a faint halloo came from behind us I was not alone 1ntthought The darn fools said Fitzhugh They want a long chase I guess tn go through the country yelling like a pack of wild Injuns I reckon twas an owl said Thatch erUbut we might as well be moving We neednt take no chances while weve got a good set of heels under us Get up boys The willing brutes shot forward into the darkness at the word and tossed the rain drops from their ears with many an angry nod- I have a dim recollection of splash- Ing over miles of level road drenched with water and buffeted by gusts ofi wind that faced us more and more with the monotonous beat of hoofs ever in my ears and the monotonous stride of the horse beneath me ever racking my tired muscles Then we slackened pace in a road that wound in sharp descent through a gap in the hills and the rush and roar of a tor rent beneath and beside us the wind sweeping with wild blasts through the trees that lined the way and cov ered the hillside and seeming to change the direction of its attack at every moment Well make it I reckon said Thatcher at last Its only two miles farther and the train hasnt gone ui yetThere was no sign of life about the station as we drew our panting steam ing horses to a halt before it and no train was in sight The rain dripping heavily from the eaves was the only sound that came from it and a dull glow from an engine that lay alone on a siding was the only light that was to be seen Whats the time asked Thatcher We must have made a quick trip Twenty minutes past three said I striking a match under my coat to see my watch faceIImmortal snakes cried Thatcher Im an idiot This is Sunday night- I failed to see the connection of these startling discoveries but I had spirit enough to argue the case Its Monday morning now Well its the same The freight doesnt run tonightII awoke to some nouncementIWhy its got to run or we must take to saddle again for the rest of the wayThese horses cant go five miles more at that gait let alone 25 protested Thatcher Well then we must get other horses hereiCome said Fitzhugh whats the use of that when theres an engine on the siding doing nothing Just the idea Find the man in chargeBut there did not appear to be any man in charge The engineer and fireman were gone and the watchman had been driven to cover by the foul weatherWe the Iron horse over en viouslyWhy this is the engine that came up with the special this noon said Fitzhugh I remember the number Good We are ahead of the enemy then They havent had a chance to get the wire and we beat them on the road We must find the engineer and get It ourselves Tve got an idea said Fitzhugh Its this Why not take the machine without asking I was a fireman once and I can run It pretty well- I thought a moment on the risk but the need was greater Just the thing Take the money for the horses to your friend there Ill open the switch In a few minutes Fitzhugh was back I told him he chuckled He says its a jail offense but its the only thing we can do It may be a case of life and death I said Pull out Theres mighty little steam here hardly enough to move her said Fitz hugh from the cab stirring the fire But as he put his hand to the lever she did move easily on to the main track and rested while I reset the switchThen I climbed back into the cab and sank down before the warm braze in a stupor of faintness as the engine glided smoothly and swiftly down the track CHAPTER XXV A Flutter In the Market The gray pall of the storm hung over San Francisco The dim light of the morning scarcely penetrated into the hallways as we climbed the stairs that led to our lodgings leaving behind us the trail of dripping garments I heaved a sigh of relief as Trent opened the door and we once more faced the pleasing prospect of warmth dry clothing and friends We had made the run from Niles without incident and had left the en gine on a siding at Brooklyn without being observed If the railroad com pany still has

MarIskaAldrIch Is the sensa tion that Oscar Hammersteln Im presario of the Manhattan Opera House New York city had up his sleeve for this years season of grand opera And to descend to the broad and smiling plains of slang his new star has made good To use Mr Ham mersteins own words about his latest find Mme MariskaAldrlch combines in herself every essential necessary to become a great singer She is young and surpassingly beautiful with a face that artists rave over and a figure that Is as wonderful Her voice Is of won derful range and finely cultivated and she is a natural actress She is this rest through Inheritance for she comes of a noble Hungarian family though born in Boston In person Mme Aldrich Is all that Mr Hammerstein represents Her eyes are large wide set and full of expres sion soulful the director of the Man hattan calls them her hair is light xMn MABI9AAItfICB brown and luxuriant with a natural wave to it Her mouth is finely shaped and her nose Grecian She dresses in perfect taste and with careful study of the proper effects so that her unusual height six feet is a beauty rather than a drawback- At the inaugural ball in 1901 this beautiful girl attracted much atten tion The papers of the time were full of the accounts of her romantic meet Ing with Congressman Aldrich of Chi cago who subsequently won her for his wife She was then In her teens The handsome young bride became a social favorite in Washington and was also much feted in Chicago where she lived for a short time With the exception of two years of study In Paris and London her mu sical education has been received in this country She studied abroad with Alfred Giraudet the teacher of Re naud Gillbert Edyth Walker and oth er famous singers He recognized her genius at dnce and gave her a fine fin ishing course In preparation for the place in the operatic world which he was sure would be hers Just as Mme MarISkaAldrich was ready to sing before managers she was taken ill with ptomaine poisoning and her life despaired of For weeks she lingered between life and death and at the end of that time was the shadow of her former self but her priceless voice had lost none of its beautyOscar Hammerstein arrived in Paris In search of singers just as Mme MarIskaAldrIch was recovering Mr Hammerstein wanted to meet the great Giraudet and consented to allow Mme Aldrich to act as interpreter He was so favorably impressed with her at that brief meeting that an en gagement was made for her to appear before him the following morning For hours he and Mme Melba listened to tenor after tenor paying little at tention to the would be prima donna who sat near them in the darkened opera house Just as the rehearsal was finishing he said to her with a characteristic shrug Well Mme Ald rIch if you want to sing heres your chance She ascended the stage and began the aria from Samson and Delilah The surprise as he heard the glorious voice was too much for him and the hardened operatic manager plainly showed his appreciation But when she gave that exquisite aria from Aida which ends with a sob her conquest V C Y Jl t l i 1 J t was complete Before parting Mr Hammersteln made another engagement to hear her sing and secured a promise that no other manager would be consulted in the meantime Imag ine the surprise of the beautiful American to be offered a contract not for one or two years but for five and with most flattering terms and arrangements for concerts Five years said the would bo prima donna That Is too long a con tractIt Is five years or nothing Oscar retortedflI am

maple sugar These had sim ply been cut from a cake of rather soft maple sugar with a sharp knife It was the first time it had ever been go served in the family and the little folks especially were delighted Though nothing but boiled eggs formed the principal dish these came to the table cuddled down in a nest made of Christmas greensin reality little sprays left from the trimming of the house It was arranged on a medium sized meat platter the green sprays belngpUedsufficiently high at the edges to make the nest quite realistic You can imagine how it delighted the children Delineator To Remove Ink pots On colored materials or white goods with colored figures lemon juice or acid used in removing stains will some times make the color run For ink stains it has been found that milk will sometimes do the work without Injuring the material While the ink spot is still freshbefore it has dried If possiblethe material should be placed In a bowl of sweet milk and left standing overnight or until the milk has soured The slight acid in the sour milk is helpful although the- ink sometimes disappears before the milk has reached the sour state The marks of the milk may be removed by sponging with cold water An Ingenious Honeymoon There have been many Ingenious forms of honeymoon since the young couple in Mark Twains story took theirs separately but none more odd than that of M and Mme

witness before the house ways and means committee in connection with the proposed revision of the tariff Although he was on the stand for nearly eight hours Mr Carnegie laughed and Joked goodnaturedly throughout He exasperated several of the standpatters with his epl gramatic replies praised the genius of Charles M Schwab urged the committee to accept the testimony Judge EX H Gary as conclusive an told several funny stories He avoid ed figures however to such an ex tent that it Is doubtful if the tariff framers are any more enlightened on the steel question than they were ba- tor Mr Carnegie was sworn in by Chairman Payne Mr Carnegies principal contention was that the steel industry needs n more protection that it has reache- a point In its development where the American manufacturers can com pete with the world under free trad conditions While he claimed tna cost of labor and production of steel are less in this country than In the other countries producing steel Mr Carnegie gave no

their schoolbooks that a volcano is a burning mountain from the summit of which aresent out smoke and flames This popular fancy has been exploded by scientists whose work Is to explode popular fancies In the first place volcanoes are not necessarily mountains In reality they are just the reversethat is holes in the earths crust Out of these are thrown the materials which accumu lating form the heaps which we popu larly call mountains These are then the result and not the cause of the action Neither are they burning as we understand the term There is no combustion nor any action we might reasonably call burningThe need not necessarily take place at the summit for eruptions are just as frequent at the sides or even at the base The so called smoke is nothing more or less than the clouds of condensing steam which are formed on every occasion when an eruption occursLastly the flames so called are merely the reflection of the ttss of molten rock and material In Ida the crater on the clouds of stenm above thus appearing as a glowing light The friction too set up by the motion of the materials causes electricity and hence the lightning discharges which add to the illuminating
