The following from the pen of the
lamented George I). Prentice, which is
taken from the pages of his "Man's
Higher Destiny." "It cannot be that
the earth is man's only abiding place.
It cannot be that our life is a mere bub
ble cast up by eternithy to float a moment
oa its waves and then sink into nothing
ness. Else why is it that the glorious
aspirations wbioh leap like angels from
the temple of our hearts are forever
wandering unsatisfied? Why is ii that
all the stars that hold their festival
areaad the midnight throne are set
above the grasp of our limited faculties,
forever mocking us from their unap
proachable glory? And, finally, why is
k that bright forms of human beauty
presented to our view are taken away
from us. leaving the thousand streams
of our affections to float back in Alpine
torrents upon our hearts? There is a
realm that never fades; where the stars
will spread out before us like islands
that slumber in the ocean; and where
the beautiful beings which now pass
before as like shadows will will stay in
our presence forever."

Gov. McCreary Recalls Epi
sode When He Had a Narrow
Escape With His Life.
A break for liberty on the part of con
victs in tho Frankfort penitentiary and
a story of gratitude on the part of one o
the convicts to the man who had de
fended him when accused, was told the
other day by Gov. McCreary when in
reminiscent mood. The "break" took
place when Gov. McCreary was in the
Governor's office thirty-five years ago.
The Governor !n talking about it said
"One Sunday Mrs. McCreary and
had been to church. It was a very hot
day and when I went back to the man
sion I was so hot that I removed my
coat, vest and collar, opened my shirt
and took off my shoes. I was sitting in
tne nail dozing when 1 heard a com
motion on the outside. I ran to the door
and saw convicts in their striped suits
dropping over the prison wall so fast
mat one could hardly count them as
they hit the ground. They had built
series of steps on the inside of tho wall,
climbed to the top and dropped down on
"Without thinking about my disarray
and the fact that I did not havo on
shoes. I ran down the street calling for
others lo come and help check the
break. John Griffin, now superintendent
of the Frankfort Water Company, was
living across the street from the man
sion and he ran to my assistance. Just
as I neared the place where the convicts
were going over the wall one convict,
who had escaped, picked up a large
bowlder and said lo me:
" 'If you come a step farther I will
"As I had no weapon, naturally
hesitated and stopped. The convict
still threatened me with the stone when
a trusty ran up from the gate. He had
been attracted to the scene by the noise
and cries. When he saw the man with
the stone drawn back to hurl at me he
called out to the convict:
" Don't hit that man; that is the
"With that ho burled himself on the
convict and the two went to the ground
in a rough and tumble fight. The
trusty" hammered the other man vith
his fist and finally beat him into help
lessness. He sat on the prostrate form
of .his fellow convict until all trace of
resistance had ceased and the guards
bad come up. Then he arose.
"The man who saved me from being
struck was a client or mine. He and
his brother had been tried in Madison
county for the killing of a man. The
brother escaped aftir hit.' conviction and
was never heard of again. He said that
my client had nothlrur to do with the
shooting and did aot know anything
about it until be saw the shot hred. But
my client was convicted and senteaead
to the penitentiary for tea years. He

English so you can judge for yourself.
If they were not sure that each of these was the best
possible prescription if they were not sure Unit their
skill in compounding these remedies was unsurpassed
they could not afford to do this.
Anyone can copy their formulas but there is bo danger that aayone v , .
equal their quality of the remedies, and thny know it.
