So far as The Times .s concerned,
they can either wear gowns or hit in

down fewer opinions in favor ol corporations,
and more on tho side of

Cantrill Makes Masterful Speed).
Louisville. Ky., Sept. 1 J.
Campbell Cantrill, president of the
Kentucky State Union of tho American
Socioty of Equity, addressed a
gathering of members of the society
and of the Kentucky State Grangcand
other visitors to the Kentucky State
Fair estimated at 10,000 persons at
1 o'clock this afternoon.
Mr. Cantrill spoke from tho band
stand in front of the Live Stoek Pavilion.
President Cantrill's speech
doalt with tho purposes and methods
of tho Society of Equity, and it was
his first official utterance in this direction.
Ho spoke at considerable
length and explained clearly and fully
the activities ol his organization.

who has boon oallad tho 'Joan of Arc

pursuits, and especially from the tobacco

is that tho attondanco of today
will run close to that of

The Tramp's Sermon.
A poor old waif, ragged and unkempt,
stood looking m through the
plate-glass window of a gilded saloon
in New Orleans. Two fashionably
dressed young men noticed him and
one said to the other: "Say let's do
the good Samaritan, and set Hobo
up to a drink." The other
consented and the tramp slouched
iuto the saloon at their heels. As
he poured the liquor into the glass
with a trembling hand, ono of the
young men said, "Make us a speech!"
The tramp swallowed down the liquor
with a fierce thirst, then
straightened himself and stood
them with a grace and dignity
that all dirt and rags could not ob
scure. "Gentlemen," ho said, "I
look to-night at you and at myself,
and it seems to mo I look upon the
picture of my lost manhood. This
bloated Jace was once as young and
handsome as yours. This shambling
figure once walked as proudly as
yours, a man among men, 1, too,
once had a home and frisnds and
position. I had a wife as bnaut'fnl
as an artist's dream, and I dropped
tho priceless pearl of her honor and
rocpoct in tho wine cup. I had
ohildren as swoet and lovely as the
tlower of spring, and I saw them
fade aud die undor the blighting
curse of a drunken father. To-day
I am a husband without a wife, a
father without a child, a tramp with
no home to call his own, a man in
whom every good impnisc is dead
all, all, swallowed up in the maelstrom
The tramp ceased speaking. Tho
glass foil from his nerveless finger
and shifered into a thousand fragments
on tho floor. The swinging
doors pushed open and shut again
and ho was gone. Let the young
