That Fire Insurance in
May be Lowered.
For about two weeks a new insur
ance man has been here quietly going
about, carefully examining private
residence and outbuilding, leavings
behind him the impression that some
of the people who own their homes
may probably get a reduction in the
rate of their fire insurance. It would
certainly be welcome news, In an
article published a couple of weeks
ago, when we called attention to the
reduction of insurance rates on farm
property, we emphasized the fact
fiat a city having almost unequaled
facilities for fire protection like Hop
kinsville has, we ought to have
cheaper rates, and now we hope we
will get them.

Presided at the Piano at the
Princess Last Night.
Miss Marguerite Lawson, the a:
complished pianist, who returned
a few days since from a visit to Cin
cinnati and Cleveland Ohio, Frank'
fort, Indiana, Albany, N. Y., and
severel other places was at the piano
at the Princess Theatre last night.
Her renditions were most enjoyable
and evidenced the fact that though
away from the city, the young musi
cian had lost nothing of her sweet
ness oNouch -even the instrument,
if it could tnlk, would say, "I
know you!" Miss Lawson visited
the moving picture shows in the dif
ent cities and is of the opinion that
nowhere can be seen prettier build

than our own.

YOU CA MAKE WASHING EASY
Thw Will He After Ach ff th
Tub Are Only Placed
Th washday is often spoken ot as
"feltM Monday" because It (s usually a
day of hard work, followed by days
of recovery from. web. aches as wom
an thinks her due. Now, It has been
definitely proved, says J. Howard
Frick, Instructor ot Medical correction
gymnastics in the Samaritan hospital
of Oermantown, according to tho New
York Tribune, that washing clothes
has nothing to do with making wom
an feel gloomy, but that tho way she
does It has all to do with her after
Tho most common complaint ot
women after a day's washing is the
terrlblo backache which almost com
pels them to go to bed. This Is uomo

middle of the head and behind the
eyes, which often last for days. Now,
what is tho cauBO of theBo after of
fects? Certainly ordinary work should
not entail such after sufferings. The
wholo cause Is tho position ot tho
woman while working over tho tubs,
ThemaJorlty of wash benches aro too
low and the woman must stoop over
while at work. This causes tho mus
cles of the abdomen to relax, which al
lows tho stomach, liver, kidneys, and,
In fact, all the organs, to fall forward
out of their normal positions, caus

Tho proper position before a tub' is
a perfectly erect position. Hero it Is
imposslblo for tho abdominal organs
to fall out ot position, as tho abdom
inal wall is tenso, as it should bo whon
In tho erect position.
Another point, of value in the erect
position is the fact that the wringing
of the clothes is much caslor, since
the wholo force of tho arm can bo
used without having to exert an effort
to keep tho erect position.
The lifting of tho tubs is an entire
ly unnecessary labor. When they ara
not of tho stationary kind they can
be emptied by means of a siphon.

A READY WIT
rmeu Author of "The Mlk" Wm
Never at Lom for a
His table talk will not bo garnered
up in dismal Iittlo volumes where the
champagne is flat and the lamps
burn dim. Brevity was the soul of
his wit, says Rowland Gray in the
Century. The terrible verdict as to
a ccrtfiin 'Hamlet" whose imper
sonator unwisely asked him to be
candid' is historical.
"Funny, my dear fellow funny
without being vulgar."
A remark about another conceited
player was mado to a very limited
"Poor 1 He has nil the
faults of an actor without tho excuse
of being 050."
A word was enough. He described
a sweet old woman, all sloping
shoulders and Honiton lace, as "be
longing to the early keepsako pe
riod." Another, who was being rid
iculed for tho hideous Middlesex ac
cent, which converted bad weather
into a "voil d'y," was gravely de
fended by him: "She is of ancient
lineage; for it is evident she is de
scended from tho Twangta-Saxons."
Of a stout matron in society ho re
marked: "I liko Mrs. A-, , but I
prefer a woman to bo as long as she
is broad." Rallied, for his admira
tion of several beauties at once, he
retorted, "But 6urcly I am too good
to be true," which was unanswerable.
HIDE THE CAMERA IN ITALY
Country Jealously Guards Its 8ecretf
of Defense From tho Prying
No country guards the secret of
its defenses with such care as Italy.
Many an innocent tourist loses his
camera through ignorance of tht
regulations enforced in districts
near the French frontier. If you
are traveling by train straight
through from Modena to Turin you
may safely take a camera with you.
But should you get out at Bardonec
chia, the first station on the Italian
side, or at any other station between
that and Susa nineteen miles fur
ther on your camera is confiscated.
Anyone bicycling, mob ring or
tramping across the frontil K with a
camera is forceto hand it over, no
matter what his destination may be.
Of course the camera can be recov
ered if you return thefcame way, but
it is lost if you leave the country by
another route. Xew York Tele

When Sheridan was in distress in
early life one of his recourses was
that of writing for the fugitive pub
lications of tho day, in which he was
materially assisted by his wife, and
many years after his entrance into
the sphere of politics ho was heard
to say that "if he had stuck to the
law he believed he should have done
a3 much as his friend Tom Erskine;
but," continued ho, "I had no time
for such studies.
"Mrs. Sheridan and myself were
often obliged to keep writing for our
daily leg or shoulder of mutton; oth
erwise we should have had no din

whom ho conversed thus, wittily re
