V Rules On Competence Of Men r Nashville Tenn Jan 2Vith four jurors accepted out of 160 exam ined there is every prospect that the Cooper murder trial will be in full swing before the week is over The readiness with which jurors were secured was a surprise to everyone who had watched the proceedings of the case The rulings of Judge Hart however had not a little to do with the rapidity with which the proceed ings moved He began by fining nine tardy talesmen 25 each Next he took into his own hands the examination of those men who claimed to have formed an opinion Unless the prospective juror insisted that he could not render a fair ver diet even after hearing the testi mony Judge Hart held that he was a competent juror and compelled either the state or the defense to exercise their right of peremptory chal lenge The judge declared that 4 rI1 1ROBIN COOPER On Trial For Murder of Former Sen ator Carmack whether or not a man had an opinion in the case if he swore he could lay it aside and render a verdict on the evidence he was a competent juror The state was forced to challenge at least three men who qualified as jurors but who admitted thei friend ship for some of the defendants and who in the opinion of the attorney general displayed too much eager ness to serve in the case At least twice during the examination it developed that some uniformed police men had been canvassing prospective jurors and one talesman swore that this policeman after questioning him carefully said you had better be careful how you serve up there The attorney general in his questions put special stress upon whether or not the talesman was opposed con scientiously tb capital punishment One man who said he could neither read nor write had not heard very much of the case and never had an opinion declared he was opposed to hanging unlessua man needed It He was excused Every time that the states attor ney spoke of hanging the defend ants Colonel Coopers daughter a tall slender girl with a patrician face and expressive brown eyes showed by her drawn tense expression and clinched hands that the question with ita grim suggestion of a ghastly death for her father and brotner sent the iron

at least 53 work menre included among the list of missing and the majority of these alreadyare known to be dead as the result of a fire which had its origin in a powder vault attached to the In termediate crib used in the coCstruc tion of a new water tunnel connect ing with the South Side of the city It is known that 95 workmen were employed in the crib and the connecting tunnel at the time of the fire but the wont of the destroying element was begun so Unexpectedly and reaped its harvest of aead and in jured with such swiftness that the contracting firm of George W Jackson and the rescuers have been un able to arrive at anything like an accurate list of those who perished and others who escaped the fury of the flames of the icy waters of the lakeAs nearly as the investigators have been able to ascertain the explosion had its origin in a powder house of small dimensions situated about 100 yards from the crib structure proper p but at the same time being a part of the general structure built on foundations resting on the bottom of the lake at this point The dijll detonation muffled as it was by the crunching of floating Ice against tfie crib and the atmosphere laden with heavy fog simply aroused the attention of the workmen ac cording to survivors and it was not until the head of the flames and tke stifling smoke penetrated the so called living room of the crib and the tunnel beneath the waters of the lake that the full import of the dis aster dawned upon the little colony of workmen cut off almost completely from human succor One of the wbrkmen with a cooler head than his fellows abandoned the shouting and frantic group on the crib platform and made his Vy through the smoke to the little enclosure in which telephone communication had been established with the shore station The drowsy attendant at this point was brought into action by a violent ringing of the bell and this was the message which seton foot the work of rescue The crib Isk 6n fireor Gods sake send help at once or we will be burned alive The tug At this point communication ceased and through the fog the men on shore barely discerned occasional bursts of flame and an unmistakable odor of smoke made it known to the watchers on shore that a tragedy was probably being enacted a mile and a half out in the lake The tug T T Morford in charge of Captain John son had forced its prow to an any chorage within a short distance of the imperiled crib and this waa placed in service at the outset in the work of rescuing the frenzied workmen The Ice made it impossible for the tug to reach the Improvised pier but a small boat was placed in ser vice to carry the injured to the steamer and rescue those who had plunged into the waters of the lake rather than face the flames which were raging on the crib structure After several hours of work on the part of the rescuers in which heroism stood forth even in the heavy fog and drifting smoke 39 workmen were rescued and when the fire tug Con way and its crew had succeeded 1a quenching the flames 53 bodies had been carried to the shore and placed in morgues in South Cnicago await ing identification ing identification

School All His Life JW j j of the presidents nave f MOST college men The great of them Washington and were not Lincoln indeed had little formal schooling of any sort And those who taught him Were better fitted for mauling rails and boysthan they were for teaching According to his own word here was less than a year all told of even this Indifferent instruction As a matter of fact however Abraham Lincoln went to school all his life and he had a bet ter teacher than any of thesehimself- He was as hungry for knowledge as the average growing boy is for food He literally devoured books any kind of books including the Bible and the dictionary Books were as scarce then rs1ew novels worth reading are now lllt a r sult this lad with the starving fcind road and reread many times ev jbook he could procure As Shakespeare Aesop the Arabian Nights nnd the prophets were among his au thors it can be seen how much better off he was than those who are flooded by latter day fustian Indeed the meagerness of the future presidents schooling was by no means an unmixed evil What he did get heI digested Like Franklin lie tried to reproduce it thus gaining a style of his own Such a mental appetite had lie that he even devoured the statutes of Indiana with as much eagerness 6as the schoolgirl of today reads Laura Jean Libbey At least I presume that schoolgirls read her Somebody must or she would not write It is said that Lincoln also read that Impossible book Weems Life of Washington which has spread misinformation about the moreI His Country than is told about I great men which is literally speaking volumeS The only redeeming thing about Weems is that he wrote of Washington and it was for this that Lincoln appreciated him I do not know whether Washington could tell a lie or not but I do know that both Weems and Sparks could and did Fortunately for Lincoln most of his biographers have been on speaking terms with verity and did not seek to elevate their hero into a demigod by placing him on a tall pedestal of eu logistic lies George Washington was very much of a man and it will pay the world to forget Weems and Spares and get acquainted with the first president as he was Such an omnivorous reader was Lin coln that he actually walked miles to borrow a grammar in order that be might read that He r would have read the doubtlessI Record if he could have The only people who read the Congressional Record nowadays are the members whose speeches are printed there They never get a thanes to ielivefv the great bulk of these speeches In congress so the Record is the only outlet for their pentup eloquence The government printing office thus becomes the legislative safety valve Still that is hardly a truthful figure of speech as there Is J no steam behind this oratory As for gas it never explodes without fire and there is not a scintilla of fire in these speeches It is fortunate for ilrfcoln and the world that the Record By James A Edgerton Copyright 1908 by the American Press Association was withheld from him Think about boyjdesert There is one other advantage In the Lincoln style of education It at least left his individuality unimpaired He was not put into a hopper and ground into the semblance of every other young man that went through the same mill He remained as God made him not as some board of trustees and professors tried to make him over He was not subjected to the deaden ing process of educational uniformity If there is anything that has made this AngloSaxon civilization worthwhile it has been the work of those theindependentnonconformist We have stood up for our individuality the dearest gift of God to man Variety makes life bear able The whole movement of art of civilisation of progress is away from the stupiply regular spiritlessly uni form deadeningly monotonous that would make all men on the same intel goIis due to the fact that their Godmade individuality is stronger than the man made molds in which they are placed If one may order a suit of clothes to fit his individual shape why may he not order an education also fitted to his needs Why is an embryo poet and a merchant in the making fed the same mental food The elective sys tem in education has a small start thank God and that beginning will grow letNus hope until public schools and universities will try to develop and bring out the peculiar difference procureJgenius and Individuality of pupils rath er than seek to dwarf and repress The revolt against this dead level of uniformity in education is the same as that against straight lines and geo metrical figures in

same pattern except a row of men made the same way God gives us infinite variety and we shall have a very much more interesting treatise and worth while world when we get sense enough to follow Gods lead The internal world of the individual is the most real the most precious and the most holy thing we know It is time that we learned to respect and venerate this thing fresh from God and made In his image If the gardener is delicate in his treatment of the flower how much more delicate should we be in our treatment of the individuality which is the flower of the soul- Lincolns form of self Imparted edu cation may have left him lacking in polish and in some sorts of culture but it still left him Lincoln with all his virility and piquant personality and the world is infinitely thankful for the result According to the omniscient Dennis Hanks what little schooling young Abe got was due to his mother and after ward to his stepmother Abe was setysbeI i irilzable way his mother died I reck on It was thinkm o Nancy an things shed said to him that started Abe to studyin that next winter Abe shed say you Ian all you kin an be some account an shed tell him stories about George Washington an say that Abe had just as good Virginny blood in him as Washington Maybe she stretched things some but it done Abe good Here is more from the same source Denny Abe d say the things want to know is in books My best friends the man wholl git and one The following too is from Dennis still qU9t1ngAbe Pap thinks It aint polite to so many ques tions hed say I reckon I wasnt born to be polite Theres so darned many things I want to know An how else am I goin to git to know em Poor starved childstarved in mind if not in body Little did he dream that the world one day would be as eager to know of him as he then was to know ot things What tricks time plays How could Pontius Pi late imagine the man he permitted to be executed would be powerful enough in death to conquer and outlive the Roman empire How could the boy Lincoln foresee that his name would become the most loved of the nine teenth century himIromance full of surprises a gospel written in letters of gold by the ever moving finger of the divine That this backwoods boy should become the chief figure in one of the worlds greatest epochswhere does fiction furnish anything more romantic or improbable One never gets over the surprise of it The way Lincoln walked from his bed of husks to the presidency the thrilling story of his nomination the simple strength and patience with which he met the greatest of wars the leaps and bounds by which he grew in the nations and the worlds esteem his quiet faith in his second nomination and election a faith fully justified by events and finally the sense of personal bereavement felt by everybody at his death all of this reads more like a tale from some di vine legend an account of some myth ical hero than a chapter from the newest of nations in our own times Who can fathom the education of a great soul Who knows what forces and intelligences are testing and tem pering It for its coming work We talk glibly of Lincolns training but what do we see of it Behind our knowledge are veils on veils unlifted We do not know ourselves How should we know one of the immortals Lincoln was one of those universal many sided men who are beheld differently by every spectator He had in him some correspondence to each of those he met and they beholding this imagined they had seen the whole of him He could seen to be glvltfg away all hIs points or disclosing all his plans the while he was concealing and holding in reserve his main contention or chief design It Is never well to underrate these simple men The very ones who are so transparent are the ones who have depths on depths we have not penetrated To the frontiersman Lincoln was a frontiersman to the lawyer a law yer to the politician a shrewd party captain to the statesman a states man to the sorrowing mother a sym pathetic tender listener meeting all on the level each according to his kind This was no unsophisticated back ofmenpersuade and how to order This was a keen sighted politician a man with a far look into the future This was a diplomat with skill to steer away from complications with a foreign power with skill also to win and hold the common people on whom he relied Where did he learn Jt all Right here we approach Lincolns chief education He imbibed all this from him self and from other men He studied human natureboth in himself and in those he met It was often remarked of him that every man with whom he came in contact he pumped dry He found out all this man had to give him extracting not only thexes sence of his knowledge but perceiv ing the essence of the man himself Lincoln also learned how to resolve each problem into its simplest elements This was the most valuable lesson of all Having schooled him self to go into fundamentals he fol lowed the same process in each mat ter that came before him His hu mor aided him here for it showed him the absurd and the incongruous These two faculties together with his strong logic and common sense enabled him to strip the sham from the real and to go straight to the heart of every ques acquiredimparted by any school or training whatsoeverThere a wisdom and a culture In the spirit of Lincoln higher than any outward education could have bestow ed It was this inner beauty not the outer homeliness that was the real LincolnIt this part of him that we must discover If we do not find the soul of this meek but lofty man Wj miss the choicest and best of the bless ing he has to give us He was not an accident for there are no accidents in Gods humanity He was a divine mes senger sent to lead us in our dark hour and chosen unerringly by the in etinc of the people We do not know the mysteries that bring forth such miracles of human character as that of Lincoln but we do know enough to recognize the divine impulse behind them They are signs of the beneficent purpose that shapes the ways of hu manlty toward better things than we hd foreseen or hoped r DROP FIGHT ON SEtATORBAKER Cindflnaiian to Retain Fin= ance

cabin is in splendid state of preservation is the in formation received by Mr Miner It is numbered in parts so that there will be no difficulty in rebuilding it as it originally stoqd After completing that work Mr Miner will return to this city to have a conference with Governor Willspu Wednesday or Thursday when the details of the celebration February 12will be discussed and in all probability com pleted Purpose of Association It is the purpose of the Association to make the opening celebration- on February 12 a large affair as President Roosevelt Secretary of War Wright Gen James Wilson

cavalry for an escore and a military band to make the music for the occasionPrincipal Speech The principal speech of the day however will be made by President Roosevelt Mr Miner has read this speech as it has already been prepared and lie says it is a masterpiece and the best speech that President Roosevelt has ever prepared The action taken by the committee in deciding to make dedication ceremonies in May when Presidentelect Taft will be the principal speaker the popular demonstration was not done to slight President Roosevelt but because the Association does not feel that it has any

handle as large a crowd as is expected there would be ifR popular demonstration was made Entered Into Spirit Mr Miner is delighted to know that the Kentuckians have entered into the celebration with

building Furniture records and other things that were owned by Lincoln will be put into this hall and it will be a place that housands of Americans will visit in years to come The As sociation is now

the lace curtains should be covered withsoft shaded drapery plainly hung and of a simple pattern A very good material for this purpose is Aberdeen linen It sells for about 90 cents a yard Where diamond shaped windows are to DO decorated this material is well suited Of course one can use the soft silks and a stencil pattern on soft linen colored silk is very handsome In preparing a stencil pattern if you cannot afford a metal stencil then get a good grade of manila paper and draw the design you wish on it Flowers with hanging heads are very pretty and the way to get a perfect outline is to place a piece of carbon paper black side on the manila pa autThis leaves a perfect outline on the manila paper It Is best to coat the cut out paper with paraffin which can be done iby sprinkling small pieces of shaved paraffin over the pattern and running a hot iron over it But a better way would be to get a soft brush dip into the melted wax and paint both sides of the pattern This coating saves the sides of the pattern by preventing the moisture from ruining the edges of the openwork Cut out the pattern wij i a very sharp knife on the manila paper and if you make a wrong move there is nothing to do but make a new pat tern The brush must never be wet when applied to the material or the moisture and color will exten beyonO the outlines and ruin the effect Embroidery Design As applique work is very much in demand and considered one of the best ways of trimming a frock an original design is given here for it For border and bands one spray may be used as medallions Use net in v THE WORKING PATTERN the flower as suggested in the pat tern Buttonhole the outside edges and put the Trench knots solid in the center Leases are half embroidery and Seed Stems are solid This pattern may iso be used on all solid material The Baffling Language English is the only form of hum speech of which it can be said that nI is not sufficient to know it in order be able to use it The Frenchman

Presenting SOuvenirs t Wedding Attendants t 4t a recent wjedding the bride nitron a novel way of presenting the sbuve Airs to her bridesmaids that added much to the interest of the occasion After much looking she found in a Russian art store a number of fasci nating old silver belt buckles s chas are worn by the peasants in Russia The one drawback was buckles alike were not to be ed But the girl lilt on the p1lrCbas1 of making the bridesmaids their own gifts Each buckler was done up daintily In a box used for the wedding cake With the monogram of the brideSand groom on top These were put in the center of a wedding bell of white r den chrysanthemums and a white rib bon with a small heart cut from sil ver paper was attached to each pack age The bell was a homemade affair made from fine wire with the flowers stuck in through the meshes Each stem was wrapped in damp sphag num moss to keep it fresh The boxes were concealed in the top of the bell above the clapper A wire shelf was run across with an opening on one side through which the boxes were The shelf was hidden by beingwound with greens Each heart had a number on the wrong side which was repeated on the box to avoid mistakes At the close of the wedding supper the bride rose and sid I will now ask my bridesmaids to wish me good luck by ringing my marriage bell Each girl was then directed to take hold of the first ribbon she could reach and pull the bell gently seven times In order not to bring bell boxes and all down on the table the pulling was very light At the close of the ringing each girl was told to gently draw her ribbon to ward her one at a time This took the small boxes from the shelf with out possibility of breakage The boxes when opened were fount to contain in addition to an old buckle a small card with the date of the wedding the initials of the bride and groom and a merry jingle appro priate to the occasion Washing Crepe de Chine How many people know that wash ing crepe de chine is no more difficult than washing a frock of colored muslin Yet the fact is that a frock of crepe de chine in a delicate color will come out of four or five washings as triumphantly as a piece of white linen In performing the operation only tepid water must be used and the goods should be left in as short a time as possible White castile or some other fine soap should be em ployed and the garment must be thoroughly rinsed half dried and pressed on the wrong side with a mei diuni hot iron Great heat isnat needed and is in fact injurious If of a delicate tint the garment must be dried hi a sunless place and left in an equally shady spot after pressing Flower Sachets Flower sachets are extremely dam ty To make a rose sachet ft little ball of perfumed cotton must be covered with crinkly pink or white

Another bag that is very useful in the library is a small and cleverly contrived affair to hold a ball of string A receptacle for this purpose can easily be cut from soft leather The bag is made of four pieces of leather brought to a rounding point at the bottom and shaped like the petals of a flower at the top The leather pieces are placed together with leather strings which are slipped through the center of the cover which is cut in scallops or sections around the edge Each section of the bag is rolled over at the top and every other scallop of the cover is tucked inside the bag The
