Entered at the Hartford post-office
i mall matter of the second class.
UlrdB this year, on account of
their scarcity and the smalltesa of
the covles, are hardly worth the li
cense and ammunition that It takes
to hunt them.
Mr. Bryan may not be Included
In President Wilson's cabinet, but
he will almost certainly have some-
thing to do with the
matters political from the outsider
A Christian county man has

Plenty of men of modern times have
Idols, however, and they do not
have to go to caves to worship
President Taft, with his political
weather eye looking Into the fu
ture, says he will positively not be
a candidate for President In 1916.
The President's own remarks is the
first time we have heard the sub
ject mentioned as regards himself.
Some fellow who has kept track
of the matter says that fourteen
women In this country have been
acquitted of killing tholr husbands
slnee the Jlrst of last June. This,
however, will probably not have
any effect on the matrimonial mar
ket. As a sample of Republican party
"trust busting," the Standard Oil
CQjnpany.'g. dividend for one year
hlnce the famous" ""dissolution,
amounts to .'.2 per cent. Thus
did the trusts fatten on such meth
ods of putting them out of busi
ness. Democrats are talking about
splitting the blanket that is they
are planning to rip President Taft's
blanket order whereby about 36,
000 fourth-class postmasters were
placed under the civil service. Let
us hope they will not split among
themselves in so doing.
President Taft carried twenty
Three counties of Kentucky at the
recent election and Col. Roosevelt
six. Gov. Wilson carried all the
others and yet got a majority over
both Taft and Roosevelt combined
of only 1,306. Wilson led Taft, I
however, by 104,072 votes.
That was a good move when tile
miners of Ohio county made a pub
lic appeal and exposition of the
conditions prevailing on account of
a lack of cars to move the coal that
lleB waiting the pick and the mark
et. These conditions have prevail
ed for several years and the miners
have become desperate. It is well
to let the public know how affairs
are running among thls worthy
class of workmen.
The Board of Health of Chicago
announces that the Windy City Is
the most healthful place to live In
the country. From what we have
heard of the place, that depends on
what portion of the city you live In
and whether you ever go out In the
"night air." It Is said there are
several sections of the city where a
man takes his life In his hands
when he ventures out or frequents
the same nfter dark. Naturally
these sections would be considered
unhealthy all the time.
You can sometimes or generally
tell the thrifty farmer by the kind
of literature he keeps around" the
house. First of all comes his coun
ty paper one or more which
keeps him and his family informed
as to current events and contains
much' of profit to him In hls calling.
Hc could hardly be called up to
date without this journal. Then he
takes one or more regular farm
journals which deal specifically
with the farming business. But he
will usually find much In his home
paper along the same line. Tho
successful farmer must keep posted.
The Independence of th0 Philip
pine Islands Is one of the matters to
which the Democratic party stands
committed. One clause of the Dem
ocratic national platform Is as fol

Indorsement by the pensioner in the

of which must tally with the certi

Sherley Says Big Ditch Will Be
Fortified and Open Within
Washington, Nov. 30. "The Pan
ama Canal will be open for business
within a year from to-day, and
will be amply fortified."
This statement was made last
night by Representative Swager
Sherley, chairman of the Fortifica
tions Subcommittee of the House
Appropriations Committee, who re
turned from a tour of Inspection on
the isthmus with the other mem
bers of the Appropriations Commit
tee. "The work on the Isthmus Is pro
gressing rapidly," continued tho
LouIsvilleCongressman. "The charge
made by 'Uncle Joe' Cannon and
other Republicans at the last ses
sion of Congress that we were not
appropriating sufficient money to
carry on the work of building the
canal properly was all nonsense. I
and my Democratic colleagues so
stated on the floor of the House at
the time, and on our trip to the ca
nal this fall we found that our
statements were justified. The
work is not being delayed In any
"For the next fiscal year, to bring
the great work to a satisfactory
conclusion, the Democratic House
will appropriate every cent that Is
necessary. The same will be true
of the money needed for fortifica
tions. I was pleased to see that
the emplacements for many of the
big guns are ready now. We will
be prepared to protect our work
from any be' ..erent Power when
wo are ready to open It for busi
ness." Mr. Sherley will spend several
days at the New WUlard Hotel
while he Is finding a permanent
home for the winter for himself and
his family. He will begin work at
once on tne big appropriation bills

the House Appropriations Commit
tee for passage by the House and

ANOTHER CASE OK DIDN'T
KNOW GUN WAS LOADED
The Owensboro Messonger says:
"I am an Indian chief, and you
are my captive," said Ray Moseley,
as he and several small children se
curely tied Clarence Moseley, nine
years of age, a brother of Ray, to a
tree. Then there waB a "war
dance" about the tree, and a rifle,
held by Moseley, was waved in the
air. He pointed the gun at his
brother, who was enjoying the
sport, and pulled the trigger.
There was a flash and a sharp re
port. All of the children were
startled and stopped their romping.
"Help! I am killed!" cried the
His companions at first thought
he was Joking, but they became
terrified when they saw his shirt
crimson with blood. They ran
screaming to the' house, and his
father, J. R. Moseley, came to his
rescue. He was carried to the
house and then hurried to the city
hospital, where he was given medi
cal attention. The bullet from the
rifle entered the left side and per
forated the Intestines four times.
His condition was critical last
night. Physicians say that he has
a fighting chance. His brother Is
grief-stricken at his home on the
Leltchfield road, and declares that
hc had no Idea that the gun was
loaded. It has been necessary to
restrain him from going to the hos
pital and keep constant vigil at the
side of his brother.

Ridge, who had been HI for the

public schools during the three

lectures. Most of these have been
on the general subject of the con

considerable comment by the phy
