which drew a large crowd to the meeting was the sale of a telephone franchise which was bought by the I East Tennessee Telephone Company for 1000 This was the franchise that was offered for sale at the request of the East Tennessee Com pany It was strongly protested against by the citizens generally and the business men because of its pro vision to allow ths purchaser to charge more for the service than is Old Kentucky Company is allowed to charge in its franchise The sale was conducted by J R Bush and the bidding was done by Mr J M Steven who the East Ten Home Company Opposes Ever since the franchise was first offered for sale the Old Kentucky Company has been fighting against the sale because it allowed the East Tennessee Company moreathan it could Mr Stevenson said after he had made his bid of 1000 that he would withdraw it and let the p Old Kentucky Company have the franchise and he would stand the chances of getting the Council to grant him another just like it for his cdmpany but the Old Kentucky refused theo ffc r At the meeting a petition was pre sented by the Merchants Protective Association which is given in full below asking that a franchise be not granted providing for an increase in V4 rates The petition was read to the Co iflcir after which Mr Stevenson claims lie it was dictated by Mr D L is the president of the Home Company and who Mr Stevenson vas the attorney for the Merchants Protective Asso V Mr Pendleton was not present but his partner Mr V W Bush was Mr Bush said that if the petition was prepared in their office by Mr Pendleton he knew nothing of it and denied the charge that Mr Pendleton wasthe attorney for the Merchants Association Vote is Unanimous After a wrangle between Mr Stev enson Mr Bush and a few of the Councilmen that took up nearly all of the session the question was ask ed for and the vote was unanimous for the sale of the franchise- Against Street Car Company- A motion was made asking that the Council direct City Attorney F H Haggard to file suit against the Central Kentucky Traction Company for it forfeiture of their franchise on r account of their failure to comply with their franchise to fun the street

follows fTo the Honorable Board of Council of- Winchester1cntu ky The undersigned Merchants Pro tective Association hereby offer the following resolutions as a protest against the raise of rates fixed by the telephone franchise which at the re quest of the East Tennessee Comp ny you have advertised for sale on- Januaiy 1st 1909 Be it resolved by the Merchants Protective Association of the city of Winchester Kentucky that this as sociation most earnestly protests against the granting of any franchise for the operation of a telephone sys tem in this city at any higher rate than those fixed by the franchise of the Old Kentucky Telephone R Telegraph Company under which it is now rendering telephone service in this city and this protest is directed particularly against the franchise ad vertised for sale by the City Council on January 1st 1909 because the propose franchise fixes higher rates for telephone service in this city than the rates fixed by the rival company under its present franchise While it is rue that the operation tf two telephone systems in this city IS now imposing an additional and unnecessary expense on the mer chants and citizens of this town of about 500000 annually more than would be required if but one system were in operation yet we do not pro test against the granting of another franchise if the rates fixed by that franchise be made the same as the rates fixed in the franchise of the company now doing business in this city We feel that the burden of hav ing two systems is enough where we are required to subscribe to two tel ephones or for either of them increas franchiseed to the Old Kentucky Telephone r Telegraph Company- Be it also resolved that this association recommends to the Council and insists that ifa franchise be granted to the East Tennessee Tele phone Company that company be required to transfer messages and telephone service to and with the company now operating under the franchise already given so that mes sages received by one company for subscribers on the exchange of the other company may be transmitted directly over the lines of the other company to the person for whom the same may be intended bydirect con nection between the two telephone systems which would obviate to a large extent the necessity of the sub scribers paying for two telephones in their residences or places of bus inessRespectfully

and the United States Mar shals has aroused the entire State attention has been attracted to this mountain town where armed miners are defying the law and State troops have been sent to preserve order and protect property Stearns is thirty miles south of Somerset in Whitley county just over the Pulaski county line and is- in the very wild portion of the Kentucky mountains Only a few yegrs ago there was no habitation there and the C N 6 T P Railroad winding its way through tile jagged rocks was the only signs of civilization Has 1500 Population Robert Stearns of Chicago sever al times a millionaire saw the im mense wealth and possibilities in the untouched coal and timber for mile andmiles in every direction proceed ed to buy and lease for many years thousands of acres of the land there and like magic the town of Stearns now numbering 1500 inhabitants sprahg up But unlike most mining towns uptodate buildings were erected and many of the best people of Michigan reside there A spacious hotel located upon the peak ofone of the mountains adorns the town while fashionable bungalows neat cottages and modern stores make up a fashionable looking little city which silhouetted against the wild and rugged hills towering high in the air form a most fascinating picture All of the miners huts employes of the big sawmill and their boarding houses set apart from the hotel and residences of the peonle who are in terested as owners officials bookkeepers clerks and stenographers Railroads Built Into Forests Severalmiles of railroads have been built by the Stearns company right into the dark and almost inac cessible mountain region numerous mines have been opened up and the latest electrical mining appliances in stalled an electrical plant supplies the mining power lights for the pathways streets and houses and drives the big mills the biggest in the Souththe electric rjlant as well as everything else there being owned by the elder Stearns his son and a few others From the very outset this company has absolutely refused to employ union labor and would not jive employment to any man who was a member of a labor union ofany kind Two years ago serious trouble was narrowly averted because an at tempt was made to unionize the miners there The second attempt is what led up to the present troubel Miners Are Mountaineers Nearly all of the miners engaged at the Stearns mines are natives of this mountain section They cannot understand how their belonging to a union would in any way injure the business of the company Possessing that natural antipathy for United States officers they resent any Federal interference Led Up to Trouble Deputy Marshall George Massin gale of this place served the first injunction papers on the miners men and because of the fact that he was unable to get a good many of them application was made by the Stearns company for a posse of United States Marshals This was complied with and their arrivalon the scene brought on the killing of Marshal Mullins df Richmond and the wounding of Waddle and Ryan of this place and the burning of the hotel operated by Berry Simpson the leader of the miners who are defying the law

of men and as such knows what they will do if appealed to in the right way The River Jordan flows between the Prom ised Land and his followers It must be crossed With the same feeling that afterward animated Douglas to take from his breast the jeweled heart of the dead Bruce and fling it over the i heads of the advancing foe shouting Fight my men for the heart of Bruce so Joshua with the deep religious consciousness of a Jew gives the order to carry forward the Ark of the Covenant No one of his follow ers will dream of lagging behind when he sees that sacred symbol in front And so following in the footsteps of the priests the people old and young cross the Jordan and enter upon a new phase of their national life The parallel between our case as we stand on the threshold of a new year and the Jews on the eve of their en tering Canaan is so apparent that it can be seen at once As the tired wan derers from Egypt stood facing the Promised Land so do you and I stand facing

The day is ushered in with early mass celebrat ed in the cathedral which is attended by all the women attired in old clothes and the poorer class barefoot ed and the wealthy in somber black with Mack mantillas or shawls shrouding their heads But immediately after breakfast everybody begins to prink and preen for callers Raven locks are plastered into elaborate coiffures with cocoanut oil and crowned with red or yellow blossoms or in on the New Year with the sweet star ry flowers of the jessamine which are called throughout the island the flow of San Paquita who is the patron saint of lovers Stiff trailing skirts of gay brocade and antebellum cut are donned wide flowing sleeves of em broidered pina gauze and ample neck erchiefs of the same filmy material are adjusted and there is a tinkling of many bangle bracelets as the fair ones seat themselves to wait the arrival of the first caller His entrance is the signal for the jam pot to be brought in This takes St James asks What is

the Ark of the Covenant We who are the children of the larger hope can do nothing better than to send forward into the new year the Cross of Christ Why Because only by the power of the Cross can we hope to pass successfully through the trials and temptations and to over come the kings of passion and selfish ness which so surely lie waiting for us in the next 12 months- It must appeal to nearly every one this ending of an old year and the beginning of a new one A man must be dull indeed if it awakens no thoughts of a larger life a more consecrated manhood a more devoted discipleship The past let us remember is dead the future is always alive It holds aloft in its strong right hand the morning star of hope and whispers each child of man It is never late to mend Let us face the new year with brav hearts and better determinations plac- Ing before us as we advance the Cross of Christ believing that in proportion as we are loyal to this symbol shall w have strength given us to endure hard ness as good soldiers of the Master patience to suffer without giving way to despair sorrow and misfortune and spiritpal courage so that we can come through every temptation tri umphant and

and Declares Progress is Not Dependent Upon Its Agencies but Upon the Virtues of Sobriety Industry and Thrift Has Praise For Philanthropists Albany N Y Jan 2 Governor Charles E Hughes wasxinducted for his second term as chief executive of New York Among the invited guests on the platform which had been erected before the speakers desk in the assembly chamber were the governors parents the Rev David C and Mrs Hughes the Right Rev Thomas M A Burke Roman Catholic bishop of Albany the Rev Richard H Nelson The inauguration ceremony was preceded by a military parade which was reviewed by Governor Hughes from the steps of the executive man sion After the inauguration the governor held a reception in the execu tive chamber In the course of his inaugural ad dress Governor Hughes said Government is merely an organ of the community to securea basis of peace and order essential to individ ual liberty and opportunity and also to maintain the collective rights which can not otherwise be safe guarded Our dependence for prog ress is not chiefly upon governmental agencies but upon the virtues of sobriety industry thrift and modera tion upon the realization of our mutual dependence and upon the grad ual supplanting of motives of mere selfinterest by those inspired by the appeals of brotherhood The influ ences contributing to this develop ment multiply more rapidly and are more potent than those to which they are opposed In many groups notable in their variety but dominated by the same spirit our citizens are devoting them selves to the endeavors of philan thropy and to the work of

the time of the shooting and at the coroners inquest She denied having fired the fatal shots or having participated in any manner in the killing of Erb In opening its case attorneys for the defense set up the claim that Mrs Catherine Beisel shot her broth erinlaw to death after a fierce struggle in selfdefense during which she wrested the pistol from him In the encounter the weapon was acci dentally fired leaving smoke in the hallway the jury was told The de fense argued that when Mrs Beisel secured the revolver she shot rapidly and in the smoke did not know how far she was from Erb who retreated toward his bedroom receiving three of the bullets in his bQdy The jury was also informed that Erb had sought in every way to rid himself of his wife by making it most unpleas ant for her at

If there Is danger of Injuring the material to treat It In this way try Bitching on a piece of waste cloth well soaped If the material gathers when put In the machine place a piece of brown paper under It This prevents the nee dle from catching In the fine thread of the material After the sewing is finished the paper Is easily pulled away and leaves no trace This Is very good when sewing on

Leave the Silver Bright Careful women have in some cases had their silver egg spoons dipped In gold so that the stains from eggs will not have to be fought against They do not realize that a single application of fine table salt on a wet cloth will take off any stain and leave the silver entirely bright After this it should be washed in warm water and pure soap Many women leave silver spoons In preserves from one meal to another remarking that the articles are silver and the fruit acid will not ruin them But do they stop to think what the silver will do to the fruit There Is a chemical process between the fruit acid and metal which makes the fruit unfit for use This is even more so where the genuine silver is not used Lard will turn a spoon green in a few days In hot weather yet

HIDING FROM TROOPS Soldiers Doing Guard Duty and Mak ing No Effort to Capture Miner SOMERSET Ky Jan 2Ames sage from Stearns says everything is quiet there and no other demonstra tion has been made since the attempt to assassinate Captain Waddle Wed nesday night which was probably made by some drunken fellow who imagined he had a grievance against the soldiers No scouting party has yet been sent out after Berry Sumpson and the soldiers and officers there seem to be doing only guard duty One of the strangest features about the matter is that while the troops have been there for almost a week no attempt has yet been made to go after Berry Simpson who it is alleged is the ring leader and for whom the troops seem to have been called out Simpson has seemingly made no effort whatever to conceal or cloud his whereabouts as he has been seen daily along the railroad just north of Stearns CHANGE OF NAME The WinnMartin Coal arid Supply Co incorporated is succeeded by the JR Martin Coal

made my repor- tI wouldnt spoil these horses for ItiuItslOOO for you if you get to the of the others cried Mrs KnappAnd youll have a bullet in your hideif you dont keep out of gunshot of them I added The double inducement to haste had its effect and we could feel the swifter motion of the vehicle under us and see the more rapid passage of the trees and fences that lined the way The wild ride appeared to last for ages The fast trot of the hcrses Vas a funeral pace to the flght of my excited and anxious imagination What if we should be overtaken At last the houses began to pass more frequently Now the road was broken by cross streets Gas lamps appeared flicking faint and yellow in the morning air We were once more within city limits The panting horses never slackened pace We swept over a long bridge arid plunged down a shaded street and the figure of the horseman was the only sign of life behind us Of a sudden there sounded a Ion roll as of a great drum beating llv reveille for an army of giants The horseman quickened his pace and gal loped furiously beside us Theyre crossing the bridge he shoutedWhip up I cried to the driver They are only four blocks behind us The hack sflung around a few car ners and then halted Here we are cried Dicky Dahl at the door You get aboard the tug and push off Jake and I will run up to the foot of the wharf If they come we can keep em off long enough for you to get aboard The tug was where it lay when we left and at my hail the captain and his crew of three were astir It was a moments work to get Mrs Knapp and- o her charge aboard Come on I cried to Dicky and his companion And as the lines were cast off they made a running jump on to the deck of the tugboat and the- o vessel backed out into the stream When the mist and darkness had blotted out shore wharves and ship ping the tug moved at halfspeed down the channel I persuaded the captain that there way no need to sound the whistle but he declined gruffly to increase his speed I might as well be shot as run my boat ashore he growled with a few seamanlike adjectives I did not know of any particular reason for arguing the question so I joined Mrs Knapp Thank God we are safe she said with a sigh of relief We shall be in the city in half an hour if that is safety I said It will be safety for a few days Then we cart devise a new plan I have a strong arm to lean on again Returning to the deck I found that the light of the morning was growing Vessels were moving The whistles of the ferry boats as they gave warn ing of their way through the mist rose shrill on the air The waters were still a faint ripple showing in strange contrast to the scene of last night Theres a steamer behind us said Dicky Dahl with a worried look as I joined him Ive been listening to it lor five minutes Its a tug said the captain She was lying on the other side of the wharf last night Gpod heavens I cried Put on full steam then or we shall be run down in the bay Its the gang we are trying to get away from The captain looked at me suspic ously for a moment and was inclined to resent my interference Then he shrugged his shoulders as though it was none of his business whether we were luriatics or not so long as we paid for the privilege and ang the aheadWe Oak land Creek channel and the mist suddenly thinned before us It left the bay and the city fair and wholesome in the gray light as though the storm had washed the grime and foulness from air and earth and renewed the freshness of life We had come but a few hundred yards into the clear air when out of the mist bank

around the sun he has In various characteristic ways regarded the first day of the new year as a day of rejoicing and well wishing It was the great day for1 exchanging gifts until in some daytNew Years day is generally observed as a holiday and as an occasion for paying ceremonial social calls in f France even now New Years pres ents have not entirely disappeared New Years day is not observed on January 1 in every country although most nations nowadays use the Gre gorian calendar and consequently be gin their new year on that day In Russia the Julian calendar is still in use and as a quarter of a day in each year is lost by that system there is dayshTheslNew Year and the Chinese New Year owing to the peculiar systems of keep aing time by those people are very elu sive dates or seem so to persons fa miliar only with the Gregorian calen TO THE CALENDARS The Jewish year is solarlunar and may consist of as few as 353 days and as many as 385 New Years day usu ally falls in September The Moham medan years usually consist of 354 days being purely lunar and the leap ye rs which occur in certain twelve months of a cycle of 30 lunar years contain 355 days The first day of MuharremNew Years daymay In course of time make a whole revolu tion of the seasons An instance of this may be given The first of Muharrem 1906 fell on February 25 while the- Mohammedan New Year last year be- ganI on March 7 Inasmuch as it is t yearIforms to the eastern idea being found addx with the solar year Consequently I the Chinese New Year may begin anytime between January 21 and Febru ary 28- REVOLVING NEW YEAR The ancient Egyptians had a year more or less conforming to the Julian style inasmuch as it contained 365 days In course of centuries this made New Years make a complete revolu tion of the seasons This fact only recently properly appreciated by Prof Petrie the Egyptologist led to many misconceptions and retarded the solu riteswhichstood by archaeologists Anciently in Rome the new year began in March in the neighborhood of the vernal equinox which would iseem to be a reasonable If not logical MarchUwas I sixteenth century the day when the new year began in most Christian countries Numa is said to have made the Roman year begin on January 1 the day held by pagan Rome sacred In honor of Janus who was thus sup posed to turn at once back upon the told year and forward into the new and subsequently New Years day was at various times and in different Chris AresIFeast of the Annunciation and East er day- CUSTOM OF GIFTS Almost everywhere the custom of making presents on the first day of the new year hasbeen observed When I It originated or where it would be extremely difficult if not actually impossible to say It is sufficient to know that the observance has the sanction of remote antiquity In the eighth century B C Tatius king of the Sabines according to traditions began the custom among the Romans At first the gifts were merely emblem IIcutStrenia the goddess of strength These were presented to the king as an omen of good fortune The gifts became more pretentious as time went on and in later centuries some of the Roman emperors demanded New Years presents of great value from the magnates of those days As the Roman rulers were gentlemen who were not to be trifled with the pres ents usually appeared on time after notice to the wealthy was given It was in Rome too that the habit of masquerading at New Years appears to have originated The custom still observed in Italy now is confined to the cerebrations at the Epiphany and at the carnival time FESTIVITIES OF THE DAY In some countries notably in Great Britain and in some cities in Canada and the United States the new year is welcomed in by festivities on the eve of the day In Scotland for instance it is customary to celebrate New Years eve with some festivity which is prolonged until past midnight At the stroke of 12 every one present wishes each othera Happy New Year The custom is also common In many parts of Germany where the salutation is Prosit Neu Jehr Similar to this custom are the religious watch meetings held in some of the churches in this country on New Years eve In England on New Years eve In some houses a curious custom or superstition is observed At the stroke of 12 which ushers In the new year the party already wait ing on the stairs begin to ascend the stairway backward taking a step at each stroke Every step successfully mounted means a happy month every stumble a reverse Of course it is one of those playful superstitions which are not taken seriously Glucose Fondant for Christmas Two cups sugar one cup water and two tablespoons glucose Boil all un til a little dropped in cold water wUl form A soft ball Remove from fire and heat till

went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed of the devil for God was with Him What He began to do and teach He desires to continue doing and teaching in us by the same Holy Spirit Note how the doing always precedes the teaching in Matt v 19 Mark vi 30 Luke vii 22 xxiv 19 Acts iv 20 I John i 3 This ministry continued till the day in which He was taken up for after His resurrection we find Him still teaching as in Luke xxiv At least ten times He showed Him self alive during those forty days be tween His resurrection and final man ifest ascension and He was always speaking of the kingdom of God verse 3 the same kingdom of which we have been hearing recently in our Old Testament studies the kingdom which will fill this whole earth with peace and righteousness and of which Israel shall be the earthly center Jer iii 17 18 The little company had been with Him two or three years under the best teacher that ever taught and the time had nearly come for them to go out In His name and live as He had lived and teach as He had taught but they were not yet qualified to do so They needed the same person to live in and control them as had lived and wrought in Him even the Holy Spirit whom they had already received but who had not yet been given in power as He soon would be They are therefore to tarry at Je rusalem until He the Spirit should come upon them Then having receiv ed the power of the Holy Spirit com ing upon them they would be wit nesses unto Him from Jerusalem unto the uttermost part of the earth To Israel He had said long before Ye are My witnesses Isn xllii 10 12 xllv 8 and He said of them This people have I formed for Myself they shall shew forth My praIsa xllii 21 He had said the same virtually when He brought them out of Egypt by Moses I bare you on eagles wings and brought you unto Myself Ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto Me above all people Ex xIx 4 5 The word to us Is the same Who gave Himself for us that He might redeem us from all Iniquity and purify unto Himself a peculiar people zealous of good works or more literally a people for His own possession pur chased to be specially His own TitII 14 As He was wholly and ut terly for God so He would have us for He said As the Father sent me even so send I yon John xx 21L Having instructed them about the waiting and concerning their commis sion while He blessed them He was parted from them and carried up into heaven Golden Text Imagine yourself one of them that day All are gazing upon Him and listening to Him when suddenly He seems to be taller than the others and yet taller They look at His feet and they no longer touch the earth they turn again to His face and He Is looking so kindly upon them but He is leaving them Higher and high er He ascends while they gaze in dumb astonishment until a cloud hides Him from their view and as they steadfast ly gaze upon the cloud hoping doubt less to see Him again two men in white apparel heavens livery said to them This same Jesus which Is taken up from you into heaven shall so come in like manner as ye have seen Him go into heaven verse 11 Then with great joy and full of praise to God they returned to Jerusalem Luke xxiv
