Dear Ernct Uaswcll in Bruxclls
(You say that Is the French way of
spoiling HruMclM anil that cither one
will reach you) The Haswell family
anil "the cook that Isn't," Jncludlf g
Coleman and -nob, have gotten your
last good letter, and the readers of the
Breckenridge News have thoroughly
enjoyed the paragraphs from your first
the one written with so much heart
and feeling for your mother and fatler
and those back home
It's just find That In nil those new,
attractive surroundings, In the midst
of your discontment to achieve, that
you have a calm mentality and can
composo yoursclt long enough to write
satisfactorily to those who are always
anxious to hear from the boy that's
awayl Love does not let a pen stay idle
and always finds pennies to pay the
postage.
Geel You were shaking and shiver
ing In your shoes when Dubois called
his entire class to see your work. How
could you wait for the Interpreter to
tell you what he said when you knew
Dubois is prejudiced against every
foreigner who enters his studio?
Your work has already been worth
while. Anything that can make a man
lay aside prejudice for, at least, a mo
ment has performed a mission. Some
great man has said that a work of art
is a work of the heart. No wonder you
havo worked more and better thnn you
ever did in Hardinsburg and CIncy!
The unfavorable things he said will be
the laying up of treasures for you for
the days to come. I never had a criti
cism that didn't help and hurt at the
same time.
Of course, you and Malcolm were re
celved with cordiality and politeness.
You expected it and were not looking
for anything else. You worked for It
and deserved it. Ever since you learned
your Abe's, haven't you been trying to
be as polite as your mother taught
you? Mother's scnool is a never-ending
.one from which none of us are gradu
ates. The men over there who tip
their hats to each other and seldom to
women, surely are a bit like the same
old fellows hero who never think of
Doliteness except when a girl falls to
speak to them.
Oh, those beautiful horses! I can p'c
ture those big Norman horses drawing
the two wheeled drays and how I
should like to see the cavalry. The
men are, of course, excellently drilled
or they couldn'l win all the prizes In
London and New York. As military
service is compulsory for the oldest in
the family It's disappointing that the
army of Delgium i not what it should
be.
Rob and J. were terribly excited over
the dogs pulling carts for the grocery
people over there. How can a wonnin
and ii little iIor pull a cart together?
Maybe, the boys will uet a book now
about Flanders, Holland and Belgium.
You have gotten their curiosity
aroused. Tney seem to think that lirus
sells ii more like a circus than an art
ist's studio -since you have written
about seeing every day the very dog
that is iiientioied in that appealing
book, "The Dog of Flanders."
You can't say now that you never

LOOK HERE FOR IT
Many a Cloverport Reader Will
Be Interested.
When people read about the cures
made by a medicine endorsed fioni far

if the htiiteniL'iitH are true? But when
the' read of cases riht here at home,
positive proof is within their reaeli, for

Saved Comrade, but Lost Life.
A workman sacrificed hla life to
fescue a comrade who had been over-r-ome
by fumes In a blast furnace at
Harlaston, Staffordshire, England, a
few days ago. A man named Heald
was descending tho furnace on a pul
ley chain m order to readjust the
chain around the scrap-iron lying In
a heap of coke at the bottom when
another workman saw him fall off the
chain Just beforo nearlng the bottom,
lu response to an alarm several men
rushed to the top of the furnace. A
furnaceman named Jackson Imme
diately placed a scarf over hla mouth
and went down on the pulley chain.
Ho tied a rope round Heald, who was
pulled up. Then Jackson ascended
on tho chain, but when within a few
feet of the surface ho called out
"Make haste. I'm going," and fell
backward to the bottom of the fur
nace Three workmen named Ince,
Darby and Speake made a brave at
tempt to rescue Jacksqn. Speake
managed In the end to get a rope
round Jackson's waist and be was
pulled to tho top but was already
dead.

a victim to his Ingenuity. He used to
fasten a rope, attached to the celling,
about his neck with an easy running
noose. Then, having knocked over
the furniture, be would overturn the
chair on which ho was standing and
remain hanging by tho rope. Alarm
ed by tho noise, tho neighbors would
rush in and cut him down. After be

of distress in such moving language
that money would bo forthcoming for
his relief Later bo would repeat the
trick In another houso, invariably

of some kind; has hud two years' experi

Ii. A. North, caro Tribune.
The efficacy of this modest ad.,
which appoared In tho classified col
umns of tho Minneapolis (Minn.) Trib
une recently, was evidenced In a doz
en offers of good Jobs, but apparently
not to tho taste of the advertiser, who
"turned them all down."
Twico ho was asked to take work
us a stenographer, and was even of
fered a Job as a school teacher, in
which profession he already has
"starred." having taught rural school,
according to the "ad." Hla reasons
for not accepting these offers were
that ho was looking for "something
Intellectual" and feels that bo is best
fitted for "higher" kind of work.
It was stated on bis behalf that bo
was thinking seriously of entering the
University of Minnesota, and for that
reason might not consider Jobs of
oven "intellectual" work unless thoy
were specially tempting and camo
