For dressy wear, the Directoire styles
are the very latest thing from Paris. The ex
treme types will, of course, not be worn by
For everyday wear there is a return to
the strictly tailor made, very trim smart styles,
that depend more on lines than trimming for
No matter what the garment, you will
notice an unmistakable style to the coats we
show this fall.
The originals of the finer models were
imported by Bischof, Stem & Stein from the
most famous European houses.
These have been modified to suit Amer
ican tastes. Everything new everything nov
el, was immediately emboided in Bischof
garments, and these garments we are show
ing this season.
The materials this year are mostly to be
of solid colors, soft clinging and simple.
In buying a Bishop coat you run no
risk you can depend on everything we tell
you about them. We show them for ladies
and children at any price you can afford.

--""iC, m explain
ing his views Mr. Bamberge says :
"In looking over the field of avail
able economic plants which will ro
tate with shallow-rooming plants and
at the same time prove profitable to
the farmer. I have come to the
conclusion that cotton would answer
the purpose admirably. It is not a
great consumer of the plant foods
required by corn, wheat, oats, etc.,
is very deep-rooting, is of easy cul
ture and Is most profitable.
The Improved strains of cotton
commence opening their bolls within
100 days from planting, and a pay
ing crop can be taken off within 150
days. s This short period of matur
ing will admit of its culture us far
North as the Ohio River and will
add another commercial product to
the long list of cash crops these two
States are growing.
The further North cotton is grown
the larger the yield is the evidence
of the statistical bureau of the gener
al Government. Florida, the most
Southern cotton-producing State,
averaged 122 pounds per acre, while
Missouri, the most Northern of the
cotton-growing States, averaged 258
pounds to the acre.".
For the benefit of those married
folks who like to celebrate the all
important anniversary ol their wed
ding, or of the friends who are pleas
ed to remember the happy couples

wedding, and a proper time for the
bestowal of sheets, pillow-cases,
comforts and all gifts made of cot
ton. The second is paper; third,
leather; fifth, wooden; seventh,
woolen ; tenth, tin ; twelfth, silk or
linen; fifteenth, crystal; twentieth,
china; twenty-fifth silver; thirtieth,
peail; thirty-fifth, lace; fiftieth,
golden; seventy-fifth, diamond.
Electoral Vote for Democrats.
Vice Chairman Hudspeth of the
Democratic national committee
makes public a list of states in which
he says Mr. Dryan will receive the
electoral vote They are as fol
lows: The solid south, 166; Ne
braska. 8 ; Indiana, 15; Ohio, 23;
West Virginia, 7 ; Nevada, 3; New
York, 39; Total, 261. Necessary
to elect 242? The Vice-Chairman
puts Wisconsin in the doubtful col
umn and said New Jersey, Conneti
cut, Rhode Island and Illinois were
still debatable, with New Jersey and
Conneticut favorable to the Demo
The Present Duty.
Speaking of the old soldiers re
union, at Union City last week, the
Commercial has this to say : "Gen.
H. A. Tyler, of Hickman Comman
der of Forrest's Army Corps, was
next introduded by his Chief of Staff,
the marshal, Dr. McRee. This
brave hero and big-hearted Ken
tuckian, in dashing and humorous
oratory, went the clip of a true
thoroughbred. He skipped the
"Cause of the War' and saved the
old vets "Eulogies on Great Gen
erals' nor "Wept Because Passing
Away," Dut consistent with his life
he addressed himself to the duties of
the hour, present needs of the old
soldier, the duty of cacti to the
other especially to the unfortunate
oses, knowing that history will take
care of itself. His address was one
of the events of the reunion."

J. P. Lecgate,
A noted Republican says : "I
shall vote ftr Bryan because he is
opposed by the rich criminals who
Roosevelt says shoulu be iu the
penitentiary. I am opposed to Taft
because he is backed by said crim
inals. I shall vote the straight
Democratic ticket because I prefer
democracy to plutocracy."
As we understand Mr. Roosevelt's
defense of the Harriman campaign
1. It was entirely proper for Mr.
Roosevelt to solicit this money, be
cause he intended to bunco Harri
man and did bunco him.
2. Secrecy was necessary be
cause Mr. Roosevelt's motives have
been misconstrued by low-minded
persons who would see in the trans
action a sordid attempt on the part
of Harriman to control the Presi
dency through the use of tainted
3. Publicity of such a contribu
tion before election might have
thwarted the high moral purpose of
Mr. Roosevelt in separating Harri
man from his money without giving
him anything in return.
4. Other Presidential candidates
should never be permitted to engage
in similar negotiations, because even
were they sufficiently patriotic to
repudiate the moral obligation they
would not be sufficiently practical to
deceive a man like Harriman.
5. The fact that it was Theodore
Roosevelt who did this is a complete
answer to all hostile criticism.
Having defended the contribution,
perhaps Mr. Roosevelt will now ex
plain just how the money was used,
as Harriman said, to turn 50,000
votes in the election.

Walter Wellman is still writing up

pany of Paducah made an assignment
last week. The schedule of liabilities
and assets has not been filed, but it
is said the former amounts to sever

In the 1893-4 so-called Democrat
ic "panic" there were seventeen
bank failures. In the 1907-8 panic
in Roosevelt's administration, forty
three banks stopped payment. That
is one fact that Republican orators
are kept busy dodging.
