The procession of working children in America,
if placed twelve feet apart in single file, would
reach from San Francisco to 3oston and thence
to New York. To shorten the procession until it

but 10,000, or one for each half mile of those
The predictions made by representatives of
American printing establishments before tne Ways
and Means Committee, during the Tariff hearings,
are being speedily fulfilled. A representative ol

An eminent Ohio manufacturer writes a predic

says: "1 want to be on record as predicting that

that a reduction in the tariff has taken place, but
the manufacturers will, and so will their employes
before the end ofl9M."

"Where are all the boys who used to play "fox

Sir John Lubbock, the scientist, has shown how
insects inay live if preserved from accident and
harm of nil "kinds. The greatest age attained by an
insect, as far as known, was that reached by a

she was nearly fifteen year old. Another queen of
the same species died after a life of thiiteen years.
-AS TO KENTUCKY LEMONS.
Jt is bruited abroad that the Hon. dames ICehoo
has a one and one-half pound lemon, which was
presented to him by a Mason County farmer who
grew the fruit and thirteen others like it.
Perhaps, but the only kind of lemons that men in
public life expect to get from their constituents in
Kentucky are the figurative variety. They grow
abundantly all over the State and are handed to
someone every now and then. In fact the man in
public life who does not fear that his const itMcnts
are not saving them up in July to hand him in No
vember is exceptionally fortunate. Frankfort
BEVERIDGE NOW ONLY A HOODOO.
Former Senator Bevcridgo is an eloquent orator
and plausible phrase monger, as ho demonstrated
at the Ohio Bull Moose convention. But the prin
cipal effect of his disruptive propaganda in 19J2
was to make his adopted State of Indiana solidly
Democratic; and now his party in Iloosierdom is
going to pieces. In coming to his native State of
Ohio, Ins efforts are in effect simply an aid in
perpetuating Democratic minority rule. It is
gradual realization of this fact which is the chief
reason for tho disintegration of tho third party
and the getting together of old-time political com
rades, "Walter Brown and James It. Garfield to the
contrary notwithstanding. Portsmout'h Blade.
In tho February American Mngnzino, "Abo Mnrtln,"

MIGHT BE A "TANGO COCKTAIL. '
"A well-known Nicholas County man tells this
one : He was at a Lexington hotel a year or so ago.
Slept rather late, rang for a bell boy and said:
"Bring me a Courier-Journal and a Carlisle Mer
cury." Presently "Front" returned and said
"Boss, beah is de CurusfJournal, but de bnhkecper

THE FIRST KENTUCKY HOME.
At last a dream is realized. The home of the
Governors of Kentucky ablaze with light and
abounding in hospitality has swung wide its doors
to Kenluekians and the stranger within the gates.
For a long time it looked as if the now Mansion
appropriation would never bo passed and that
eventually Kentucky Governors who did not wish
to live in tubs like Diogenes, or in tepees like the
Indians, must live in hotels.
At last we have a Mansion and it is some man
sion as Homer would say and Frankfort heaves
a sigh of relief and contentment, for Frankfort
more than anv citv in Kentucky, felt the humilia
tion of the long delay in properly housing the Gov
ernor. Frankfort Journal.
THE SITUATION AT FRANKFORT.
The I' Veiling Post has more than once been sadlj
disappointed in n Kentucky Legislature that seem
ed to start well, but we are more sanguine than
usual concerning this Legislature. The House un
doubtedly lias in Mr. Terrell a Speaker of capacity,
experience and integrity, and Mr. MeDerniott is of
the same type as presiding officer of the Senate.
Many of the new men in both House and Senate
have evinced an earnest desire to do something for
the State worth remembering. If the old lobby is
at Frankfort it has not yet showed its hand, but
the members of the Legislature .should remember
that it was publicity that broke the power of the
lobby in the lasf Legislature.
HAVING A GOOD TIME WHILE
STATE GOES TO THE DEVIL.
The negligence of Secretary of State Crecelius in
failing to perform his official duty, in properly ad
vertising the .submission of the constitutional
amendments, will prove very costly to the State,
and has brought down strong cciiMirc from every
section on that official. While the Secretary of State
is noinily the "goat." every other member of the
State administration on Capitol Square, should
come in for their part of the blame. Hvery State
oflicial seemed to be ignorant of the plain pro
visions of the Constitution, as to submitting amend
nieiits to the people. It looks fo us that not only
the Crecelius, but a number of other members of
the "official family" will land in the political
scrap-heap by reason of their being asleep on the
job. It will take some expert figuring to bring the
State out of debt under the present tax laws.
The meaning of the world sabotage is not gen
erally understood by the-average reader and we
have endeavored to obtain its meaning from La
roussc. "The definition of the word sabotage as
used among French printers designates the dis
honest act of a compositor who deliberately in
troduces errors into the texf entrusted to him or
otherwise deterioates its value." In a supplement
to Larousse the term is found defined as "the dis
honest act of workmen who deliberately introduce
poor work into that on which they are engaged."
The new Standard Dictionary defines the word
sabotage: First, the act of cutting shoes or sock
ets in rails on railroad ties; second, the act of tie
ing up a railroad by malicious damage, third, any
poor work or other damage done by dissatisfied
workmen, also the act of producing it; plant
wrecking. It would seem therefore that the mean
ing of the word sabotage is any mean; under-banded
action of workingmon for the purpose of de
stroying the machinery of production which they
are manipulating; and this is urged by the Indus
trial Workers of tho World as a means of bring
ing the employing class to time. Something like
biting off your own nose to spite your face! From

In tho 'Tnti'irsting People" depart
mt'iit of the IVIiruaiy American Ma.i

linjr, tho famous eteran showman. He
ami his lirothcis are tho greatest pow
ers in the circus world today. When
they weie school lus, thoy V.in away
from home and started to give a show
in neighboring towns. They now own
B.trnum & Bailey's circus and many
other of tho most important shows. Ill
tho article Mr. Itingling is quoted as
"'l'o always been in the circus

inn away trom home with one or two of
my brothers ami started to give u black

bination of sheer force and nersuision
of another kind. But ovtn though ho
took us home, ho couldn't get tho "cir
cus" out of our systems, and in 1882
we started out in earnest.
" 'Our first perfoimnnco was in tho
jail yard in Jl.traboo. Thero are lots

around my neck. Some say that's why
I'm a littlo stooped today.'
" 'Did you have any animals then,
" 'Only three or four horses, n
monkey, and a hyena but this last
had a more blood-curdling urine. Wo
called him a "grave-robbing man ent
er." As such ho was a great success
and brought us lots of business.
" 'This was in our "wagon-show
days," ho continued 'We traveled by
wagons for six years boforo wo becamo
a railroad show. In those times ouo
