Sprouse, one of Springfield's leading
hMinM men, an active and ardent
Independent and a member of the
atate executivo committee, is being
urged by his friends to enter the
race before the Incoming legislature
for United States Senator for the
"short term." A petition is being
circulated in Robertson county ask
ing Mr. Sprouse to enter the lists,
and has been very generally signed.
He has made no announcement of
his intention so far. Mr. Sprouse is
barely past-, the constitutional age
requirement of thirty years for fed
eral senators. ' He has had a highly
successful career here as a business
man and also conducts a large store
at Hopkinsville, Ky and until re
cently conducted one at Gallatin. If

general assembly, Mr. Sprouse's
friends claim he would be a formid

AQ KEEPS WATER COOL.
rrobbly the Illinois man who has
teres ted a novel water cooler has
traveled la Australia. There all the
railroads have a canvas bag filled with
water hanging from the rear plat
form. The water In these bags Is
kepi cool by evaporation and the
same principle applies to the water
sag seen hero. This receptacle Is
made of a material which

prevent the sun from appreciably af

It requires no stretch of imagination
to see how convenient such a bag
would be for motorists, not only pro
Tiding a perennial supply of fresh,
cool water for drinking purposes, but
for replenishing the car mechanism.
The cork tree Is a species ot oak.
In Spain the outer bark In harvested
from the same tree once every nine
or ten years. The best cork comes
from trees that are 50 to 100 years old.
Instead of injuring the tree. strlDDlng
the bark seems to add impetus to the '
growth of a new coat The yield of a
tree varies from 50 pounds to 600.
What Is. known as the "cork bark elm"
in your section is also called the
"witch elm" In some parts of Canada,
from the weird ghastly appearance of
its. boughs and trunk. Although some- j

Turn the Hogs In the Orchard.
One of the best ways of fighting
worms and other insect pests of the
orchard, aside from spraying, is to
keep tho infested fruit that has fallen
under tho trees cleaned up. It will
pay to gather these rots and windfalls
by hand or hogs or other stock may
be turned into eat them. A great va
riety of Insects will be destroyed In
this way and that will mean fewer
numbers to fight next year. No other
method comes as near to controlling

Will not roach it because tho eggs
are laid under the skin by 'the parent

A Lead Pencil Danger.
In the United States the danger ot
putting pencils in the mouth has long
been recognized, and in all the schools
every precaution Is taken to prevent
the interchange of pencllB as well as
the moistening of them with the Hps.
A great many children and even their
elders, who ought to know better, per
sist in putting pencils in their mouth

Canadian Towns Put tho Clock Ahead
and People Go to Work
Canadian owns ore following tho
lead of ' Ehgfahd ill on effort to
"save daylight." Their method is to
push the clock ahead so that the aae
old cus,tonrof goin'glb"worE at V or
8 o'clock may bo continued, and still
usfl mado of the early sunlit hours of
tho long summer day. Mooscjaw
and Port Arthur are among tho
cities definitely making tho experi
ment. Becauso of the location of Port
Arthur near the dividing lino be
tween eastorn and central time, that
city will have an exceptionally diffi
cult problem. It is now almost an
hour away from Winnipeg and tho
central Canadian towns on sun time,
and the setting forward of tho clock
an additional hour will mean a real
deviation from sun time of nearly
two hours in Port "Arthur. Persons
arising at six by their clocks will
actually be rising a few minutes aft
er 4 o'clock by tho sun. Persons
arising at 7 will bo in the 5 o'clock
early bird class.
There seems to be plausible argu
ment for the saving of daylight
hours. It means that in tho summer
time people should rise with the sun,
finish their day's worjc early in the
afternoon, and have the long dayV
light hours of the evening for recrea
tion. As it now is, they slumber
through two or three hours of morn
ing sunshine and make up by using
tho same number of hours of lamp
light. St Paul Dispatch.
SHOULD TELL HIGHEST TRUTH
Advanced Thinker, Says Spencer, It
Parent of the Future and Must
Whoever hesitates to utter that
which he thinks tho highest truth,
lest it should be too much in advance
of the time, may reassure himself by
looking at his acts from an imper
sonal point of view. Let him duly
realize the fact that opinion is the
agency through which character
adapts external arrangements to it
self that his opinion rightly forms
part of this agency is a unit of
force, 'constituting, with other such
units, the general power which works
out social changes, and he will per
ceive that he may properly give full
utterance to his innermost convic
tion, leaving it to produce what ef
fect it may. It is not for nothing
that he has m him these sympathies
with some principles and repugnance
to others. Ue, with all his capaci
ties and aspirations and beliefs,- is
not an accident, but a product of the
time. Ho must remember that
while he is a descendant of the past
he is a paront of the future, and that
his thoughts are as children born to
him, which he may not carelessly let
die. . Not as adventitious therefore
will the wise man regard the faith
which is in him. The highest truth
he sees he will fearlessly utter.
Knowing that, let what may come of
it, he is thus playing his right part
in' the world knowing that if he
can affect the change ho aims at
well; if not well also; though not
so well. Herbert Spencer.
DEEP OCEAN POCKET8.
The loftiest mountains in the
world are something over five miles
high, but there are ocean depths of
over six miles. The German survey
ship Planet sends word that she has
mado tho deepest sounding thus far
taken. About forty sea miles off tho
north coast of Mindanao, the largest
and most southerly of tho important
islands of the Philippines, tho Plan
et found a depth of 32,078 feet. In
other words, the Pacific where tho
sounding was taken was a depth off
6.07 miles, exceeding by 482 feet the j
greatest depth hitherto shown.
