understanding them and after climbing the ladder to his bed of leaves in the loft would lie awake for hours seeking to puzzle out what they meant Then he would try to phrase their sentiments in

Inspiring except Benjamin Franklins at 1tempt to reproduce the thoughts of Joseph Addison without memorizing j the language in order that by means of the comparison he might improve his own style-

Lexington papers ox if the Union Depot in Lexington was for the exclusive use and benefit of her citizens we would have nothing to say but would leave the regulation of her internal affairs alone But the traveling public have rights at the Union Depot of Lexington the same fis her citizens and they have the right to demand that they be furnished with the best ser vice and accommodation in reaching the train or depot and that being true eye feel that we have the light id criticize the system now in use at the Union Depot in Lexington v This system as now used and operated icloscly and exclusively a product of the three railroads using the depot viz Chesapeake Ohio Lori ville Nashville and Lexington and Eastern and these companies are the ones who should be censured and criticized for the manner in YetijfitiSreflects more upon Lexington than f 1l PAt the railroads the gate is now operated one gateman stands guard as the tiain comes in Those who are at the de PQt wit a view of boarding the train or meeting friends are all crowded and Huddled in front of the gate un ler ilie shed As the train comes to I v onl3parfl alght and immediately rush 7fpwards the gate When it is thrown open those who are expecting to b sighTna to pass through immediately make a rush for the hole in the fence Just as they attempt to rush through the passengers leaving the train are making a rush for the same Bole The result is that a collision occurs and in the confusion the gate t s mans shoves back those who wish to get oh the train and pulls through those who wish to get off The scrim tge in a football game is not near oexciting nor so dangerous for the reason that there are not so many r gaged On the entrance side of 1the fence there are usually a number x dfpersons waiting trmeet

Xnrmr Dcmts laugh at Lexington and Kentucky and wonder where this expansive manageproduct ment came from And all this eon fusion and unpleasantness rush and turmoil could Easily be dispensed with if the thre railroad companies would leave two gatesone an exit for the passengers leaving the train and one an entrance for the passengers seeking to board the train If it is too expensive to have two gatemen the management of the depot could provide that the exit should be fur ther east or west of the entrance gate and the entrance gate need not to thrown open until after all the passengers had left the train t rough the exit gate after which the gate uinn could then close that gate and t opon the entrance gate A Wp1r6 not kickers but in fairness to the traveling public and out of re sped for Lexington and Kentucky we do protest against this antiquated and abominable system which the railroads now have in use in the Un ion Depot at Lexington v SENATOR TILLMAN The Tillman case makes at the best a pretty mess The Senators strength with the uountry and the confidence that has been expressed in him has been due in chief meas ure to the popular belief that he was top courageous for evasion and too honest to quibble He has lost ground by his admission in his speech of defense that he was not wholly frank and sincere in his statements acid admissions concerning his negotiations for the purchase of the land forming the basis of the con troversy Taken all in all the situation in one in which there is small cause for satisfaction Senator Tillman lias proved out pf his own lips that he lacks that high sense of personal honor and regard for the great officer he holds which actuated one of the fathers of the republic John Quin cy Adams when after his retirement from the presidency he entered the National House of Representatives as a member from Massachusetts he sold national bank stock that he held because he thought that perhaps the bank question might become a sub ject of legislation We agree with he LouisAille Tunes Avtien it says rMr Tillmun whohas appealed to public sentiment by his insistent defi ance of public opinion is proved tp have a weak spot in his armor HiS excuse for his course is in itself the strongest accusation that can be brpiight against it There was noth ing dishonest in the course itself al thought it is open to criticism for its lack of delicacy There is cause for regret that the Senator should have waited for the Presidents letter to Senator Hale before making every detail of it proof against misinterpretation and

Removal of Old Jail Tothe Editor of The News- I have noticed in the columns of your paper the past few days some comments on our jail from some oi our citizens and suggesting that it be removed to some other part of the city which I think is a good movement towards the beautifying of Greater Winchester and one of the best movements that has been started in recent years and one that shpuld not be dropped until it has been car vied out Jail is an Eyesore The jail as we call it has been an eyesore and a disgrace ro Winchester for the past ten years and more of a Judgeb and members of fhe Fiscal Court in whose power it lies to have it removed for not doing so before now Not long ago I was told by one ofour citizens of the kind of jail building we had and I could not believe that cityliuitilwas my first one and I hope it will be the last until we have a new one andwas convinced for myself After my visit and inspection ofl the place I can say without fear of contradiction that nowhere in the State of Kentucky is there a more unsightly unclean or del pidated jail building than the one we have or one that is in a more undesirable lo cationHeart of Business District Winchester has grown from the little village of a few hundred popu lation like it was when this building was built to a city of nearly 10000 inhabitants and one of the most thriving towns in the State and wUy it is that we are forced to suffer the existence of such a place right in the heart of the business section of our town jammed up against the court house and not fifty yards from our Main street I am unable to see Elect a New Court In a communication addressed to you from some one that appeared fthink in last Saturdays issue of The News they suggested that we elect a new Fiscal Court ifxthe present one did not move the jail I agree with fire writer but I dont think it will be necessary Iam personally ac quainted with every member of the Fiscal Coirt and personally I like every one of them but they are like every other set of human beings they will lay down oii their jobs some time unless they have some one to look after them Paid Little Attention- I dont believe herV is a membea of the present court that has evei given this place a single thought 01 been to visit it since he has been n member of the court for they arc not in my opinion a set of men who would knowing the condition it is in and the ugly appearance it has let it remain where it now is Judge Ev ans himself I will venture to say has not paid this place a visit in the last fourteen months for if he had dont believe he Avoujd have the nerve to come out and ask the people tc reelect him County Judge for an other term without making some ef fort to have it removed I like Judge Evans and I have al ways voted for him and I am going to vote for him again this summer But he is like the members of tho Fiscal Court and every one else he will neglect his duties some times either intentionally or unintentionally And in this case I must say that it is the former for this is not the first time the jail question has arisen and doubtless will not be the last be foie it is gone I believe though that by callhig the Fiscal Courts attention to this matter from now until they meet again they rill for once go and visit this place and see it as others do And if they do I am confident they will have it removed I dont want this to be construed by Judge Evans or any member of the Fiscal Court as some one dictating to them what to do for it is not intended as such It is an old saying and a very true one that others can see our faults better than we cant and I hope they will look at it in that light I would have said to Judge Evans face what rhave said in this letter but understand from those who have mentioned the matter to him that he is very esnsitive about the jail and easily offended about it and for that reason I did not mention it to him for I did not care about having the pleasant relations between the Judge and myselfstrained May Be No Money It might be the case now that there is no nibney in the County Treasury that could be used for this purpose and if sttch is the case then I think that the Fiscal Court should say so and letjhe citizens hold a massmeet ing and formulate plans to have a t t 20 per cent Off 42U per cent Off I alG CUT I- NMens and BoYs t SUITS AND OVERCOATS

many more buildings that are credit to the city have recently been birlt in this vicinity and more AvilU TolloAv as soon as it is removed I dont want any citizen of Win chester of Clark county who may read this to believe one word that I have said until he has Visited the place as I did and has seen for him Lelf And then it isa duty that he OWes to himself to come out as I have and express his opinion of it Jill Pull Together I believe that by doing a3 we have m the past joining hands and all pulling together we will accomplish this good work and after the next meeting of the Fiscal Court instead of seeing in the head lines of our pipers where the Fiscal Court and Judge Evans were the guests of the keeper of the County Farm who pre Paced an elegant dinner for them we will se6 where the Fiscal Court was the guest of Mr George Hart and made an inspection of the jail and have decided to have it moved to sonic other part of the city and a new on Juilt I wish to thank you in advance for publishing this article for r believe if tile citizens will dp as they should do it will be the beginning of the end of that jail S A CITIZEN BRAVE FIRE LADDIES often receive severe burns putting out

for a fight or a frolic CHAPTER I OWN an old trail in the Ghost D range in northwestern Mex ico just across the Arizona border a mounted prospector wound his way his horse carefully picking its steps among the broken granite blocks which had tumbled upon the ancient path from the moun tain wall above A burro followed i laden heavily with prick bed roll pick frying pan and battered coffeepot yet stepping along sure footedly as the I mountain sheep that first formed the trail aged ago and whose petrified hoof prints still remain to afford footing for the scarcely larger hoofs of the 7pack animal An awful stillness hung over the scene that was broken only by the dick of hoofs of horse and burro upon the rocks and the clatter of the loose stones they dislodged that rolled and skipped dMvn the mountain side Not a breath of air was stirring and the sun blazed down from the zenith with such fierce and direct radiation tnat the wayfarer needed not tbob 4Bern the shadows to note its exact position in the heavens Singly among the broken blocks and in banks along the ledges the cactus had burst under the heat as it were into the spon taneous combustion of flowery flame To the traveler passing beside them their red blooms blazed with the irritating superfluity of a torchlight procession at noonday The trail leads down to a flat ledge which overlooks the desert and which is the observatory whither countless generations of mountain sheep have been wont to resort to survey the strange world beneath then with what purpose and what feelings it remains for some imagi native writer of animal stories to inform us Prom the ledge to the valley below the trail Is free from obstructions and broader more beaten and less devious than above indicating that it has been ormed by the generations of men toil Ing up from the valley to the natural watchtower on the heights Reaching the ledge the prospector found that what seemed from the an gla above to be an irregular pile of large bowlders was an artificial forti fication the highest wall being toward the mountains Entering the inclo sure the prospector dismounted re lieved his horse of its saddle anal his burro of its pack and proceeded to prepare his midday meal Looking forth best place where he might light a fire he observed in the most protected corner a flat stone marked by fire and near it in the rocky ground a pothole evidently formed for grinding maize The ashes of ancient fires were scat tered about and in cleaning them off discoveredtive olla or water jar and a chipped fragment of flint too small to inuicate whether It had formed part of an Indian arrowliead or had dropped from an old flintlock musket Lucky strike observed the prospector I was d WlltO my last 4match And gathering sonic mesquite brush for fuel and rubbing ahead drench into tinder he drew out a I knife ono rapidly and repeatedly Striking the back of its blade with the- fWit produced a stream of sparks t Trtncli fell on the

entirely composed In a few moments he arose Now I can empty my canteen in the coffeepot sure of a fresh supply of water by the time 1 am ready to mosey along He filled the pot set it on the fire and then pressed the uncorked and empty canteen down into the macer ated interior of the bisnagaIWhile his coffee was boiling the pros pector continued his examination of the fortification beginning in the man ner of his kind with the more minute Isigns and ending with what to a andIOn the inner side of the large bowlder in the wall he discerned the faint out line of a cross painted with red ocherIScraping with his pick rock to see if the emblem was the sign of hidden treasure or relic he unearth ed a rattlesnake Beforeit could strike with a fling of his tool he sent toIwardarose a sahuaro with branching arms and against this the snake was flung Wrapped around the thorny top by the momentum of the cast it hung hissing and rattling with pain and hatred The prospector looked up at the im paled rattlesnake with a1 smile Rem iniscences of Sunday school flashed across his mind Gee Ini a regular Moses he ejac1 ulated First I bring water face of the rock and then I lift up the serpent in the wilderness The year Ive spent in the mountains and desert seems like forty to me and now at last I have a sight of the promised land God what a magnificent view Dropping his pick he stretched out his arms with instinctive symboliza tion of the wide prospect and expres sion of an exiles yearning for his native land Over there is Gods country sure enough he continued giving the trite phrase a reverential tone which he had not used in his first expression of the name of Deity Thank him the parallel with old Moses stops right here Many a time I thought I would never get out of the mountains alive and that my grave would be unmarked by so much as a bowlder with a red cross upon it But now before night Ill be back in the States and in three more days at home on the old ranch I promised to return in a year and Ill make good to the hour I sure did hate to leave that strike though after til the hard lurk I had been having Sixty dollars a day and growing richer But the last

away from Crook and slip ped by these greaser rangers over the border theyll sure be making straight for the Ghost range and by this verj traif If so Im at the best place on it to meet them and here I stay till the coast is clear Turning to the red cross on the rock he reflected Per haps after all its a case of Nebos lonely mountain Lane had hardly reached this conclusion before he found it justified by the sight of a mounted Apache in the re galia of war emerging from a hidden dip In the trail below the fortification Lane dropped behind the parapet evi dently before he was observed as the steadily increasing number and loud ness of the hoof beats on the rocky trail Indicated to the listener Crawling back to his horse and bur rOthe made them lie down against the upper wall and picketed them with short lengths of rope to the ground for he foresaw that danger could come only from the mountain side Taking his Winchester he returned to the parapet and half seated half reclining behind it opened fire on the unsuspect ing Apaches The leader shot through the head fell from his horse which reared and backed wildly down the trail Other bullets must have found their billets also but because of the confusion which ensued among the In dians the prospector was unable to tell how many of them he had put out of action In a flash every rider had leaped off his horse and protecting himself by its body was scrambling with his mount to the protecting declivity in the rear The prospector was sorely tempted to pump his car tridges into the group as it poured back over the rim of the hollow but he desisted from the useless slaughter of horses alone knowing that he could be attacked only on foot and that every one of his slender store of cartridges must find a human mark if he would return to the States alive Theyve got to put me out of business before they can go on he ruminated An Apache is a good deal of a coward when hes fighting for pleasure but just corner him and great snakes and splttin wildcats what a game he docs put up I must save my cartridges for one things surethey wont waste any of theirs Theyre not as good shots as white men for ammunition is too scarce with them for use in gun prac tice so they wont fire till theyve got me dead to rights Let me see Theres about a dozen left in the party and I have fifteen cartridges Thats three in reserve for my own outfit if some of the others fail to get their men Those red devils enjoy skinning an animal alive as much as torturing a man and you can bet they wont save meany bullets by shooting Nance and Jinny Reasoning that the Indians would not dare to attack by way of the open trail in front and that It would take some time for them to make the de tour necessary to approach him from above since they would have to leave their ponies below and climb on handq and knees over jutting ledges and around broken granite blocks Lane coolly proceeded to drink his coffey and eat his lunch ofhard bread and cold bacon rind After he had finished he gave a lump of sugar to each of his animals and pressed his cheek with an affectionate hug against the side of his horses head CIOIll girl he said Im sorry we cant take a parting drink for riu afraid neither of us will reach our next water hole But you can count on me that the red devils wont get youThen going to his pack he undid it and took out a double handful of yel low nuggets and a number of canvas bags These he deposited in the pot hole and prying up the flat stone of tine fireplace laid it over them and covered the stone with embers Its a ten to one shot that they fin ish me he reflected but the wages Ive paid for by a year of hard work and absence from her side stay just as near Echo Allen as I can bring them alive and if theres any truth in what they say about spirits disclosing In dreams the place of buried treas tire with the chance of my getting them to her after I am dead Taking the useless bowlders from the Qdge of the cliff but carefully so as not to expose himself to the fire of the Apaches he piled them on top of the upper wall in such a fashion as to form little turrets He left an open ing in each through which he could observe in turn each point of the com pass whence danger might be expect ed and could fire his Winchester with out exposing himself Then he began going from post to post on a contin uous round of self imposed sentinel duty If I could only climb the sa huaro he thought and fly my red shirt as a flag to let the rnrales know Ive flanked the enemy it might hur ry them along in time to put

one who wears the human form r worthily confers nobility on all of the sons of men- Abraham Lincoln made every one in human guise more precious He re minds us of our better selves He was a symbol of the homeliest and common I est yet of the highest and rarest hu man things We cannot think of him I without becoming more loving more lcharitable and more true There is not jan element in him that does not make better to contemplate The pure in heart can read all of his life without a blush and the gentlest and most timid can view his every deed without a shudder Lincoln had goodness without self righteousness spirituality intellectuality without Idogmatism and power without tyran ny He had most of the talents with none of their abuses There are many great men we can admire and respect but Lincoln we can love He was born a hundred years ago this year It is fitting therefore that the land for which he lived and died should honor the event as it has hon ored but one other of its sons We have not enough of the supreme souls that we can spare the example of one It is not for their sake that we canon Ize them but for the sake of all the rest They do not need our praise but we need their stimulus By uplifting them we uplift ourselves They act as thet Ceni twoIreccnt simplei ABRAHAM LINCOLN It February 1809 April 1865I spiritual magnets to draw us to their height By contemplating them we unconsciously grow like them No one can measure the moral force of one Lincoln centenary All men are in substantial agreement as to their verdict concerning him The only difference is in the degree of their praise There is no sectionalism in his appreciation The south could not spare gentle memory more than the north Never was a victor less like a conqueror It is as impossi ble to feel resentment toward him as toward a dead father We grow like what we love It is this fact which lends such a beautiful Bignificance to the universal regard for Lincoln that makes so inspiring the widespread celebration of the cen lenary of Birth A nation which builds itself around such an ideal Will not only have a new birth of freedom but will have a new birth If peace of manhood and of nobility 1hat will place it in the forefront of the nations of all time It will be an inspiring spectacle when at same hour on Feb 12 as Bemblies in all of the natfon rom their faces toward the tomb at Springfield It may well be that this ceremony will become worldwide and that Americans in all parts of the earth wilJoin celebrators at Springfield in repeating certain of We Lincolns utterances

Stevenson Chief Justice Ful leI of the United States supreme court Senators Cullom and Hopkins Speaker Cannon Governor Deneen General Manager Melville E Stone of the Associated Press and other old or new friends of the martyr president equally eminent Among those who will participate In the centenary exercises are the Brit others whose names are household words in more than one land Now that the Springfield program has been adopted by the educational authorities service ever given to a single man on the American continent If not in the world But this will by no means end the observation of the Lincoln cento nary Almost equally notable will be the celebration at the Lincoln birth place farm which will then be dedi cated and thrown open to the public as a national park At this Kentu6ky ceremony President Roosevelt has promised to be present also Mark Twain Governor Folk and others dis tinguished in politics law and letters There is a generous emulation with out rivalry between the two commit tees that have in charge the respective celebrations at the birthplace and tomb Thus the two ends of Mr Lin coins pathway will be bright with while the fame of his life will stretch like a rainbow between But the chief celebration will be neither at Springfield nor at the Rock Spring J J 12 15 his his the parts the the the glory farm It will be in the hearts of the plain people who loved him while on earth who love him now and ever will love him as their true friend They have not means or time to travel to- distant shrines nor eloquence to voice their appreciation but by their own firesides and in their own hearts they will tell in simple words of their faith and trust in this plain and unassuming man who was one of themselves They are the final arbiters of all mens fame and he who is secure in their ageslOneat Springfield will be the meeting of those who knew Old Abe and who can give history first hand We have so much secondhand history in the world that this will be an improve ment If we could only have a conven tion of those who knew Julius Caesar or Charlemagne or Oliver Cromwell how many errors could be corrected An experience meeting of the friends of Shakespeare would likewise be nevIsay Oh yes old Soandsoeverybody- knows him But 200 years after he is dead the world discovers that it does not know him but wishes it did It is fortunate that we have taken this great interest in Lincoln while some of those who used to meet him behind the grocery stove and argue politics arid swap stories with him at the post office are still on earth Otherwise we should be in the same deplorable state r J of misinformation we are to or 4ai Washington in whose case we have tit depend on the Sparkses and Wecmsps for some historical fairy tales Lincoln has not entirely escaped from these romancers even as it is but they started their fiction factories co soon that it has been possible to 01lt1putsouthern sthtes who felt it their bounden duty to reflect on his pater nity All of these stories have been traced to their origin proved to be erroneous and branded Then some body came to the surface who said he had heard somebody say that had heard somebody else say that Mr Lin coln was not born on the birthplace farm but in an entirely different part of Kentucky He made some sort of affidavit on the ground of this hear say testimony Now it is fortunate all this happened while there were reliable truth loving people on earth who knew just where Lincoln was born Thus the thing could be dem onstrated beyond cavil nailed down and established for the ages This saves posterity a lot of unnecessary speculation investigation and trouble Suppose these stories had been sprung after everybody that knew Lincoln was dead All this inaccuracy might have trickled its way down through the centuries A very large portion of ancient history belongs in the fic tion department of our libraries We are fortunate in another respect Many of those who have written lives of Mr Lincoln associated with him daily He was great enough to seem great to his secretaries and partners The telegraph operators at the war department the attendants about the White House the common soldiers who saw their commander in chief all had some sort of inner prompting that this vas not just an ordinary president but that here was the sort of man that would interest the twen tysecond century So they made mental notes and printed them The world has grown in 2000 years sb that now a prophet has honor in his own country and among those of his own household They may not see all of his greatness but if they even measure some angles of it these fur nish a basis for future computations If Lincoln had lived back in the days of Pericles or Augustus I have often imagined the sort of rich story Plu tarch would have made of him At a little earlier period back in that en chanting but uncertain dawn of history before the shadows had quite lift ed men would have created of him an Odin or one of those delightful old pagan demigods that strangled drag ons with their naked hands But we have not so much to crow over for they almost did that with Washington in our own day Let us beware of putting Lincoln on everdaychief charm It is easy to marvel at a higher order of beings but hard to love them Lincoln is close enough to us to love and we must keep him so There are enough little tin dei ties but we need this man for our common humanity He is too big too warm and too precious to set him out of reach They have robbed us of moss of our heroes by making them human and impossible but they shall not do it with Lincoln He belongs to our man and woman world and we are going to keep him for our own The far shining greatness of his soul makes his gnarled hands and wrinkled face all the more precious to us Let us have all the centenaries of him that the passage of the years will permit let us have libraries full of books about him but never let him be removed from the plain people that he loved and that loved him Almost anybody can be an aristocrat but it takes one of Gods own great tender men to be a perfect democrat It is this qualitthat makes Lincoln so alive of the millions and the man that robs him of even a part of it will in that far do him to death Make the birthplace farm as splendid- a park as you like but keep the little old one room cabin on it as a reminder Retain enough of the hardships to show what they were We men who have to carve our way in the world who have to cling to principles and choose right from wrong who have to pass by temptation and who have to keep our hearts sweet through trials need all of the example of Lincoln to help us on The man who robs us of even the humblest part of that inspir ing story is a frend neither to Lincoln nor to us We want to feel that he was such a man as we are or at least such a man as we may become He was our big brother and we see the way he did things and then know bet ter how we may do them He was great not because remote but because so close He was so common he be came the most uncommon man in our time He was so human he grew al most divine He was so meek he seems a king of men He was so poor he has all the riches of our love It is such a man whose centenary we celebrate There is scarcely one in all the broad land who will not participate in word or deed or thought There are no classes in the appreciation of Lincoln Labor loves him because he was a friend of labor and himself toiled with his hands The black man loves him for free dom The north loves him as a lead er the south as a native son and a true friend Culture appreciates him for his great intellect his literary quality and his high soul The com mon people cherish him as their own child The nation reverences him as Its preserver The whole race of man prizes him for his large heart and his loving kindness He vas a human ized interpretation of theGQlden Rule an incarnation of the sermon on the
