VOL 29. MARION, CRITTENDEN COUNTY, KENTUCKY, AUGUST I, 1907. NUMBER 9
Mikit Close Eiannatlon of Sick Anlnl

plimt tht Disuse
F. T. Ecscnman, State Veterinarian,
of Louisville, was in the city
Monday. He came down to examine
a mare belonging to C. R. New-corn.
Mr. Newcom bad owned the
animal about three years. About
the time he come in possession of her,
he noticed the mare was running at
the nose. He applied all the remedies
he knew of, but they did not improve
the condition of the animal.
Upon examination by the State
Veterinarian, it was discovered that
the mare was infected with glandcis.
This was so reported and the Fiscal
Court appraised the nimal, after
which it was killed and buried.
Dr. Kesenman gave the following
history of the disease: "Glanders is
due to the bacillus of mallei or
Glanders can not appear in
animals unless this germ is introduced
into the system. Glanders is of
an insidious character and after invasion
of an animal there may be no
appearance of disease for a long time.
A horse may be infected for years
without suspicion and at the time is
capable of infecting other horses,
which may show typical symptoms
in the course of two or three weeks,
and die. Mules are highly
to glanders and often die in the
course of ten days or two weeks, in
fact the disease in this form is very
often mistaken for distemper. It is
well for farmers who are able to recognize
distemper among their stock
to become suspicious of glanders,
when they find it is not getting well
in the course of ten days or three
weeks. Glanders appears very much
as distemper, except in addition to
the continued discharge from the
nose, there arc patches, known to the
profession as chancers, on the partition
of the nose. They can be recognized
by elevating the nostrils and
exposing the parts to the sunlight.
Quite often it is necessary to feel
them, this can be done by rubbing
the fingers over them very lightly.
When these ulcers heal, which is extremely
rare, they leave a star shaped
scar, at the same time other ulcers
will be eating their way deep into
the partition of the nose and it is
quite common to find an animal
chronically infected with the disease
to have the partitions of the nose
"The glands under the jaw, neck,
arm and thigh arc always thickened
from inflamation when the animal is
suffering from glanders. A caugh is
always present in glanders, especially
in chronio type.
"Man is susceptable to glanders
and within the last year there has
been three cases where the attendants
contracted the disease, and two have
"Farcy is nothing loss than
in the skin form and is just as
contagious as that of the nose and
lung stage Jt is. quite common to
find an animal infected with both
types at the same time.
"The disease is incurablo and as
soon as it is determined the animal
should be destroyed. The Glanders
law, recently enacted, provides an
indemnity and compels the owner
to burn or bury all infected animals."
The following letter appears in the
Owensboro Inquirer, who describes
its anonymous author as' "a leading
lawyer and able jurist."
Some of our neighboring counties
'are infeoted just now with bands of
lawless miscreants, who are 'being
called "night riders," I object to
cip Misleading. It does not describe
rF the bands referred to. I know net

It must be admitted it's difficult to
find a term that is descriptive. But
when an outlaw, an assassin; an
anarchist, marauder and would-be-murderer
is simply called a "night
riders" the English language is a
miserable failure. Judging the character
of these bands by their deeds
the conclusion is unavoidable that
they are public enemies; that they
are savages; that they are cowardly
and brutal ; that they ought to be
hunted like wild beasts and shot
down as such when found.
They pretend friendship for farmers'
organizations, but their pretenses
are basely false and are intended to
mislead. They are friends to no
one. They have all the viccB of the
anarchist with none of his courage
of conviction. They are wonderfully
daring if he is a poor man or
friendless. The intrepid manner in
which they shoot down women and
children is striking.
Injuring crops, burning barns,
setting traps of dynamite in wheat
threshers, driving people from their
homes and from the slate these
things and much more of the same
order occur and the criminals arc not
Grand juries sit and judges expatiate,
but nothing comes of it. A
reign of terror seems beginning. It
looks as if the stories of Orchard in
the Haywood case are to be duplicated
The good name of the state
is being sullied, yet no special effort
is being made to suppress this fearful
state of affairs. The longer it
continues the worse it becomes. The
immune criminal doos not reform.
Every good citizen should set
about stopping this carnival of crime
and lose no time in so doing. The
miscreants can be all killed or jailed
in a months. Let the work
begin. Let every one understand
that shooting these fellows down is
lawful. No grand jury would indict
for such a commendable act.
You will find that a great deal of
character is imparted and received at
the table. Parents too often forget
this and therefore instead of swallowing
your food in sullen silence; in
stead of brooding over your business;
instead of severly talking about
others, let the conversation be genial,
kind, social and cheering. Don't
bring disagreeable things to the table
in your conversation any more than
you would in your dishes. For this
reason, too, the moro good company
you have at your table, the better for
your children. Every conversation
with company, at the table is an education
to the family. Hence the intelligence
and the refinement and appropriate
behavior of a family which
is given to hospitality. Never feel
that intelligent visitors can be anything
but a blessing to you and yours
How few have gotten hold of the
fact that company and conversation
at the table are no small part of,

eulogy. It stands out against the
background of years serene and complete.
There is nothing to wish undone,
nothing to add to that perfected

others whom those alone who shared
their daily walks can fitly praise.

their natures unsoiled, tender to little
children, loyal to family and
friends, with love and charity for

BASE BALL DISPUTE
l-acts Submitted to and Settled by the
Courier Journal's Base Ball
Owing to the fact that there was a
considerable disagreement between
the players in the game of base ball
played a few days ago between the
Wilson Steam Laundry team and the
team known as the Moore team, concerning
the interpretation of certain
rules of play, it was agreed that the
question be left to the Base Ball
Editor of the Courier Journal for interpretation.
The following letter was written to
"Dear sir: Enclosed find self-addressed
envelope for reply to a question
in base ball which has been left
"Runners are on second and third
with one out; the batsman hits the
ball and the runner, who was on
second, runs to and touches third;
the fielders throw the ball home
ahead of the runner who was on third
and the catcher touches the home
plate with his foot alter the runner,
who was on second, has touched third;
the catcher throws the ball to the
pitcher and the runner, who was on
third when the ball was hit, runs
homo and touches the plate without
beiug touched by the ball.
"Question 1, Is the runner out at
home? 2, Could he have run back
to third and forced the runner who
ran up from second to have left the
base? 3, And if this last proposition
is true, could the runner have
gone back to second and have been
safe if he had not been touched with
the ball before he got back? 4,
Could he have been forced out, in
case he could go back to second, by
the ball being held by a fielder on
the base as in running to first base?"
The answers to the questions
"Question 1, No. 2, Yes. 3,
Yes. 4, No."
So, the answers to the questions
submitted bears out every contention
of the Moore team and the ruu made
in the play should have counted for
that team as well as the out should
have been counted against them.
This is the proper way to learn the
rules and because a play comes up
that is different from the way it "used
to be played," is no reason it is
not right. J. W. Lamb is in possession
of the Editor's reply.

Worked by Man Who Claimed He Repre

Hcndelsou, Ky., July 211. The
Gleaner has the following to say of a
bold scheme worked here.
"Apparently one of the boldest
schemes by which to make the merchants
and business men generally
part with their cash is being worked
in this city by a man named Hugg,
who says he is representing the Harry
Mack Reporting Co., with headquarters
at Indianapolis, Ind. Hugg
claims that his company jhas a eon-tract
with the American Society of
Equity to visit each town in the
country and got the names of all the
merchants and professional men in
in each town who are in sympathy
with organized labor and the aims of
the great farmers' organization and
these names arc then listed in folder
form and these folders are supposed,
to be used by the labor unions and
the Society to keop the publio posted
as to who arc the friends of labor.
Each firm is mulcted to the tunc
of fifty cents to get its name on the
list and if it refuses to pay up it is
placed on the "unfair" list, as are
also the names of those who refuse to
bite. Sixty-four merchants, doctors,
liquor dealers and blacksmiths in all
parts of the city were duped by
It was left for a Gleaner reporter
to take the first steps which lead to
the discovery of the frudulent scheme
by seeuring a copy of the folder containing
the names of the victims and
submitting it to local officers of the
American Society of Equity, who at
once declared that they had no
knowledge whatever of such a contract.
The following quory was sent to
J. A. Everett, at Indianapolis:
"Has the Heury Mack Reporting
Co. contract to canvas for sympathizers
with the A. S. of R. and organized
labor? T. T. Barrett."
The reply was:
