for it, or a majority of 88 against the
dispensary. The missing box will pro

dispensary up to 100. A vote was also
taken on "manufacture" and "no
manufacture,'' and the manufacture
lost out. also, but up to now the exact
figures are not obtainable.
In the election every precaution
was taken to make it conform strictly

was never held in this or any other
county. Yet tliere is talk of hunting
up somie technical grounds of pro
testing it. There is no intimation

KENTUCKY GIRL IDEA.
Ror suggeetton For MofteosaInS
Week Adopted by Lout1ve club.
Who suggested homeoOming week?
As the reunion of all Keiktuckians
draws nearer and the magnitude of the
undertaking becomes more and more
apparent, this question Constantly re

Miss Hardin in one of,.gentucky't
daughters whose brains and energy
have made her one of the most proml.
nent elub women in the United States.
She is at the head of severalwomen's
organizations, is the editor of a pro
gressive monthly magazine and is vice
president of the Kentucky Society of
Denver, which is now her home.
It was during the early part of July,
1005, that Miss Hardin, then on a visit Y
to Louisville, called up R. E. Hughes,
secretary of the Commercial club, and
suggested homecoming week. It was
her first visit to Kentucky for a long 14
time, and so overjoyed was she to be tU
back to her old Kentucky home, so e
pleasant did she find the renewal of
Its associations, that she could not re- a
sist the desire to do something to bring t
the other Kentucklans back for a few I1
days at least.
When she called up the Commercial
club Miss Hardin explained her rea
sons for calling Mr. Hughes and asked '
if the Commercial club would not un
dertake to arrange a meet of d1istin. 13
guished Kentuckians who had won
fame and fortune outside of its bor. I
ders. Mr. Hughes suggested that the
invitation be more general and, being 6
much impressed with the idea, request
ed Miss Hardin to write a letter which
could be read to the directors of the
club setting forth her plans in order
that it might be formally acted upon by a

In the building of the bed of his au

season lie cast aside all the customary b
styles of the front, end or dashboard
of the machine bed and substituted it
with a combination animal that he a
whittled out after getting the sugges

Isle of Patmos, as told in the thirteenth
chapter of Revelations, af follows, says t
a vpecial dispatch from Anderson. Ind.,
to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:
"And I stood upon the sand of the
sea and saw a beast rise up out of the e
sea having seven heads and ten horns, L
and upon his horns ten crowns. and
upon his heads the name of Blasphemy.
And the beast which I saw was like a
leopard, and his feet were as the feet
of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth
of a lion."
Mr. Lukens carved out the wooden
form of a leopard and had' It spotted (
leopard fashion. He surmounted it
with seven heads of strange anjmal,
arranged in a circle. Ten horns act
as the back of a chair, and the crowns
are on the guard rail of a chair which
is intended for Mr. Lukens' dog. ' The
new machine is painted a bright yellow

EXPERT TO INVESTIGATE.I
Scientist Will Observe EarthquakeI
Results on Masonry Structures.
In order to investigate the effect. of
the earthquake shocks in San Francis
co on concrete and other structural ma
terials, Director C. W. Walcott of the
geological survey has ordered R. L.
Humphrey, expert in the structural
materials testing laboratory of St.
Louis, to proceed to California, says
the Washington Pdst.
Owing to the possibility of similar
seismic occurrences in portion~s of the
west in which the reclamatIon service
is constructing great masonry dams
and structures of concrete a careful in
vestigation of the effects of the recent
earthquake will doubtless afford much

when he was there and his brother was
in the commission business several In

lIe meeting one night, telling that while
the cIty was a grand and beautiful one
that they were in daily danger from

They implored the white people not
to build any structures more than two

tradition Mr. Bond's company erected
