Wonderful Falthfulnese and Fidelity
of the Great Creature.
One rear when my husband wai
at a station In Bengat, saya a writer,
hla work kept him out nearly all day
and, being III, I used to Ho for hours
In a long garden chair on the veranda,
too weak to rend or to enjoy any
moro exciting amusement than my
eyes supplied to me.
Wo had thrco elephants for our
tents and baggage, and ono used to
feed from my hands every dny, and
seemed as gentle as any dog or cat.
Ono of our government chapraals
was particularly devoted to her, nnd
Invariably shared his meal of fruit or
llour-cakes with his dumb friend. On
Gracefully Waved It Over the Slum,
a particularly hot day, the hitprael,
to my DUrprlxu, pt.n i1 111 l!itl child
of six rnoii'hn at th elf)!:-nt' feet,
warning her expressively that tho In
flint was In bt-r charge, and 'was to
be eared for tril his rolnrn.
I win an eye wHiipm of her won
derful sagacity. Large banana-trees
unrl tlg-lrei grow nroiind. and, to
my urpris0, the elephant broko oft
ono of the former's spreading leaves,
held It like n fan In her trunk, and
from time to time gracefully waved
It over the slumbering child, whether
to temper tho heat of the nttnosphero
or to keep off Mm, I nm tiuahlo to say.
Tho gentle way in which she moved
her feet over the child, nnd across
to each side, nstonlNhod me. I sent
for a whlto loaf and some ornngon,
nnd calling her by nnmo (she was
novor chained), tried In vain to tempt
her to my sldo on tho low veranda.
Nothing would Induce her to loavo
The wnnn air and tho monotonous
wavo of the swinging fan overpowered
mo with drowsiness, to which I yield
ed: nnd, nfter a sleep of somo dura
tion, 1 was awakened by quiet, sub
dued snorts beside me. To my sur
prise, I found that the chnprasl had
just returned to his offspring, and
that the elephant stood near tho ver
anda hesldo me, patiently waiting nnd
gontly asking for the tempting dain
ties so bravely withstood for moro
than two hours.

Cablo advices from the llalkan war
zono declaro that a great hattlo Is Im

ecu nnd the Turks nt Adrianoplo.
During the past week various
engagements havo occurred all along
tho frontiers of tho allied tlttlo na-
tlons. Montenegro was the first to
declaro war, nnd followed her declar
ation up with immediate attneka upon
Turkish kmU. Bulgaria, Servla and
Greece have followed suit nnd bavo
mobilized their armies so, that tho
Turk finds himself confronted with
nearly bnlf n million men all along
his Euroiiean borders.
In various engagements many thou

Tho situation seems now to havo
passed beyond the stage where Inter

H)sslbe, nnd It Is likely that n decis

tho other within n few months. And
the way tho allied forces are acquit

that, though outnumbered, they may
jl able to bring tho Port to terms,
j Tlied of tltn promises of the powers
, to seek from tho "Sick Man" redress
of their grievances, they hnvo taken
' tho matter Into their own hands and
are confident of their ability to tnko

A REPUBLICAN VOTE
Cnntinunl f rum I'lrM Cage
I'reesollorH nud tho Abolitionists with
their uuthuElasm for humanity nnd
social Justice. Tho fusion of elements
tesulted In a party so nicely balanced (
that It has held tho field by Its stab- ;
lllty and fltnos to do so. (
Good Reason for Loyalty 1
If a Republican ic loyal to his party
It Is not because ho acta from tradl- j
tlon, rather than reason unit necessity,
but because ho recognizes a great
social organism with remarkable qual
ities that havo not come together In
a day, and cannot bo dissolved except
by emergencies equal to thoso that '
Choice Between Extremes 1
In tho third place, a Republican
vote stands for a cholco that avoids
hDxtremes of ioiiticai tneory ana
policy. Tho analysis that would nui:e
tho Republican party tho conserva- I
tlvo party in tho field is an Incorrect (
analysis. That placo belongs to tho
Democratic party In splto of Its
claims of progress. Tho new party
Is tho Innovator iu political theory
and practice, llctween tho two Is '
tho Republican. There Is much that 1
.challenges thought and study In tho
Progressive's program. Tfto moro It
' Is considered tho moro It will be
realized how revolutionary It Is. Tho
Republican Is not ready to endorso
It as yet. There is need of fuller
discussion than has yet been given
to changes so far teaching ns thoso
I Outgrown Theories
' Thoro Is much in tho Democratic
' program that challenges admiration.
' Uut a careful analysis will show that
1 Its essential policies rest ou politi
cal theories that wo havo outgrown.
However wo may differ on tho tariff
question, fow men nro willing to ad
mit that It Is unconstitutional to
lay a tariff. Such a doctrine strikes
at tho root of the powers of our
uatlonal government and In essenco
goes back to tho old historic ground
of stato sovereignty.
No Endorsement of Dishonesty
And, lastly, wo can rest nssured
that a Republican, vote is not an n
dorsoineat of dishonesty In any
senso of that term, or corruption
In political method. Theso things are
not tho basis of party division. They
bolong to all parties In somo degree
Wo bellove, ns Gov. Hadloy of Miss
ouri has so truthfully said, that thcro
s moro hopo for their elimination un
der) Republican leadership than under
any otlier. That Is a question for
our American peoplo without regard
to party. If every citizen does his
duty thoro need bo no political bosses
In any party and unless they do
thoro Is danger In any party.

Letter to the Editor
Spring Creek, Ky.
Editor Tho Citizen,
Tho Extension Department has not
gone out of business, as the read
ers of The Citizen might suppose,
but is just hidden away behind
theso beautiful hills that are getting
their first autumn tints. To my mind
this Is tho most beautiful tlmo of tho
year tho air Is so pure, the skies
are so blue, tho moonlight Is so bril
liant, and the abundant harvests aro
so full of promise of plenty for tho
long cold winter months.
Since our last letter, we havo held
meetings iu Manchester, Gooso Rock
and 'Mud Lick, In each of which pla
ces wo wero greeted with audiences
that seemed much interested In our
lectures on tho school, farming, sani
tation and health, temperance, travel,
and tha Llfo of Christ. It Is hard to
tell which creates tho deeper impres
sion. tho pictures In tho llfo of
Christ, tho portrayal of tho ravages
of tobacco, cigarettes, and liquor, or
tho slides showing tho cause of dis
co so and how to prevent It.
It is Interesting to seo bow wo all
draw back from tho common drink
ing cup, when tho law Is explained
to us, and when wo see pictures show
ing a llttlo girl drinking after a con
sumptive who has left thousands pf
dlseaso gorru3 upon, tho rim of the
cup. And how wo hato tho flies when
we realize how dangerous they aro!
It Is a pleasure to preach to tho
crowds of Interested peoplo, who '
come night after night, and wo aro
glad to say, that though wo stay
only threo days In a place, wo leavo
but fow places without somo converts.
There Is a flno schoolhouse hers,
and tho peoplo bavo manifested much
interest In our lectures.
Wo are meeting a large number of
former Berca students, and many who
will return to Berea at tho first of
tho year. It Is ovident that Berca has
won tho confldcnco of tho people
In this part of tho country. Wo ex
pect tho time Boon to como when
sho will havo to enlarge her ac
commodations, for thero aro hosts
of splendid young peoplo who are
certain to go thero to school.
This fact ought to Inspire tho peo
