foe to subjection, but there Is a
well defined boundary line. A
leader may cut off his enemy's food
and water supplies. He may sub

poison his food or water.
Suppose a place Is besiegi'd and

Tho besieger would be Just'fed In
sending parties to fill up thc wells
with earth and stones, or to de

other hand to pollute the well. with
poison, or to throw dead animals
into them would be an infamy.
A "prisoner of war" has his
rights. Ho may be asked to give
Ills parole to promise not to es

punished for refusing to do so. A
prisoner on parole who attempts to
escape is liable to bo shot, either
when escaping or if retaken alive.
An unparoled prisoner may also

murder to shoot him, and he should
not be punished for his attempt,

is entitled to make use of him; but
it is not "cricket" to tempt a sol

If thus tempted, a man may pre
tend to turn traitor and deceive the
enemy with falso Information. On
tho other hand, voluntarily to, go

a traitor or deserter, would be dis

That is the due business of llfd; it

The art of living is nothing but
the art of growing old.
Instead of looking .upon old age

Whether you believe tnis or not
depends upon the point of viow you

naturally you conceive old age to

A Chapter from the An
WAS C1BGED1TH FIGHTING
Records Show Old Hunter Was
"Foxy" and Had Case
HAPPENED IN WARREN COUNTV
Howling (ireen, Ky., Nov. 30.
An afternoon paper hero rrlnts tn
'ntcrestlng hlstorlca1 event dlscov
cied in the first record book of
Warren county on file in the Co-m-y
Clerk's office relntlnr to Panlil
Heme. It says:
"Kentucklatis have always point
ed with pride toward Daniel Boone,
and be Is still the hero of the unso
phisticated of tbc native soil as
well as beloved by all and his fame
is Intimately known In other States,
for he was onc of the bravest of
Kentucky pioneers. But that
"Danny" was not always of the law
abiding kind and possessed no
doubt a spirited temper, and would
not permit anyone to "knock the
chip ofT lU shoulder," Is evidenced
In an Indictment rendered from this
county, and his was among the first
of six Indictments found, when
Warren county was formed April 4,
1797. The firpt grand jury was
then formed, - with John Curd as
foreman, and that body returned a
Joint true hill against Andrew Mc
Fadln and Daniol Boone for light
ing, th0 first Tuesdny In Aprll.1797,
at the place appointed for holding
court, and knowledge of which fight
was known by Alex Stewart and
"In a tin safety box In the arch
ives of tho rear room of th0 Circuit
Clerk's oirice, tho first paper picked
up, much In its 'ser0 and yellow
leaf,' In the file box was found the
first warrant of arrest In wnlch the
Sheriff of the county was command
ed to arrest one Daniel Boone. The
warrant was written and not print
ed, as ls the cas0 nowadays, and
reads as follows: "The Common
wealth of Kentucky to the Sheriff
of Warren county. Greeting: You
are hereby commanded to summon
Daniel Boone to appear before the
Justices of our Court of Quarterly
session for said county at the court
house on the first Tuesday In Sep
tember next to answer us upon tbe
things which he stands presented
by the grand jury, and this you
shall In no wise omit under the pen
alty of one hundred pounds and
have then and there this writ. Wit
ness, William Chapllne, Clerk of
our said court at the courthouse,
the 9th day of June, 1797, nnd In
the 6th year of the Commonwealth.
" 'WM. CHAPLINE.'
On the back of the warrant
were tho following Inscriptions:
" 'The Commonwealth vs. Daniol
Boone for Affray. Test: Wm.
Chapllne, C. C
" 'The within Daniel Boone is not
found in my Bailiwick.
"'E. M. COVINGTON,
" 'Sheriff.' "
"Now, everybody knows Dan
iel Boono was too good a "trapper"
himself to get caught and according
to the return made, hc did not care
to part with any of his 'lucky
pieces,' and sought one of his most
secluded haunts until the move
ment for hl8 arrest died out. How
over, he must have been Informed
that he was wanted for 'scrapping,'
for later his attorney, under tho
date of September 5, 1797, had the
indictment quashed. The entry In
this Instance ls as follows: 'Com-
f monwealth vs. Andrew McFadln and
Daniel Boone. On mbtlon of the
defendants by their attorneys, it is
ordered that thls suit be dismissed."
"No doubt tho Idealized hero of
Kentucky's pioneer days was great
ly rejoiced at the final outcome of
the suit, to know that he was not
any Jonger in danger of imprison
ment and fine, and could freely take
up the trail again for the hated
'redskins' and other game."
OP THK FISCAL COURT
Another suit Is to be filed to de
termine whettier tb0 Fiscal Court
of Jefferson county Is giving tho
monoy of the taxpayers to persons
who might bo, without meaning to
mak0 a pun, described as court fa
vorites. It Is charged that more
than $11,000 was illegally paid to
tho County 8uryeyor for services as
County Engineer.. It has also boon
charged that largq sums have been
paid wrongfully for clerk service to
the "Auditor" of the Fiscal Court.
No matter how these suits result
they will not affect tbe usefulness
or rather the lack of usefulness
of the Fiscal Court. The only
far0 for th evils that are bred by
the existence of Fiscal Courts is to
abolish that form of inefficient ma
chinery and substitute therefor a
commission elected by the county
ut largo and composed of a small
number of well equipped and well
paid men. Courier-Journal.

HOW CHRONIC COUGHS
Are Being Cured by Vinol.

Then juat think how distressing It
must be to havo a cough hang on for
Mrs. Maria Prlmroso, of 87 Newell
Street, Brooklyn, N. Y., Bays: "I had
a very heavy cold which settled into
a chronic cough, which kept mo
awake nights for fully three months,
and felt tired all the tlmo because my
rest was broken so much. Tho effect
of taking your cod liver and iron rem
edy, vinol, is that my cough ls gone.
I can now get a good night's rest, and
I feel much stronger in every way."
It is tho combined action of tho
medicinal elements, cods' livers, aided
by the blood-making and strength
creating properties of tonic Iron which
makes Vinol so efficient In curing
chronic coughs, colds and bronchitis
at tho same tlmo building up tho
weakened, run-down system.
Try a bottle of Vinol, with the un-
derstandlng that your money will
bo returnod if It does not help you.
