Middlcburg, Oct. 31. The big
republican t "blow out" nt Liberty
Sa tiirdny is snid to have- been a
"blow out" sure enough. There is
said to havo been a fairly good
crowd present but it wns composed
mostly of Dull Moosern, who were
there for the "loaves nnd fishes"
that were promised to be more plcn.
tiful than on one occasion whon our
Savior fed five thousand. E. T.
Pranks und Bob DavidSou were the
only big guns present, nnd it is snid
tjie- did not shoot very accurately,
us the applause was not at all gen
oral, only coming iu spots nnd small
spots nt that. Senator Bradley was
billed for a speech but did not show
up, perhaps ho had not forsrotten a
former occasion when he wns down
for a speech nt this same Liberty.
That right on the eve of tho mom
ent he had a severe attack and had
to run awav. Anyway he would
have done but little good hnd hc
been thero as the breach between
the Moosers and the Standpatters
seemed to have been widened und the
betting is two to one now that
Roosevelt carries the count v over

The band went to Liberty Satur
day and played for the Republican
rally, and was the best part of the
whole thing, so say thoso who were
there.
The protracted meeting at the
Baptist church, announced some time
ago, began Saturday night. Rev.
Dotson, of Hopkinsville, arrived
Saturday afternoon and is doing the
preaching. Good crowds are in at
tendance at night services, and the
meeting is starting off well. Rev.
Dotson is a fine preacher nnd is
preaching interesting sermons. Hc
is a man with a big mouth, and he
calls things by their right names.
He seems to be a very earnest man,
and doesn't shun to declare the whole
counsel of God. The meeting will
run for two weeks or more.

It required five special Deputy
Shoriffs besides the Jailer to get
Devme from his cell into the court
room nnd back into the jail. ,
When the caso was called the
question of the prisoner's sanity
was raised and it was decided first
to have a jury summoned to inquire
into his sanitj. At 1 o'clock a crowd
of several hundred people had as
sembled in front of the opera house
to get sight of the prisoner. On
Hearing the court room door Devine
made a final desperate effort tore
sist being taken inside. He was
seized by six stronp men, lifted off
the ground, carried into the house
and placed in a chair facing the
jury, with a guard on each side hold
ing him. A Juror passed' oo
near the prisoner, and Devine gare
him a vicious kick.'Vhich case'ear

dith and John RoBards, all of this
city, composed the medical staff of
witnesses, and about a dozen other
citizens also testified. All during
the proceedings officers took tarn,
about holding Devine in his chair.
The jury rendered a verdict after
a few minutes' consideration that
Thomas' Devine was sane, thus veri.
fying public opinion. His two daugha
