Jo BlacKburn Mentioned.
It is strongly rumor.ed in politi
cal circles says the Louisville
Times, that former United States
Senator Jo C. S. Blackburn, of
Woodford county, is the "dark
horse" referred to in the race
for the Democaatic nomination
for United States Senator at the
next August State wide primary.
Some astute politicians regard
Senator Blackburn as a sure
starter. They say the veteran
Democratic leader has recently
expressed himself as being in
, .his oldtime form and not averse
to entering the lists for the toga.
Senator Blackburn has always'
had a large folio wing .and might ,

A FRIEND IN NEED
Just a Bit of Life as It Cropped :
ut on a Railway Train.
A TOUCH OF REAL HUMANITY.
The Rough Looking Man Who Proved
That His Heart Was Big and In the
Right Place and the Shabby but
Grateful Foreigner He Befriended.
'Whenever I hear anything nowa
days about 'man's inhumanity to
man,' " said a Providence citizen the
other day, "I am reminded of a little,
incident. 1 was coming back from
Boston with a friend on the midnight
train, and, getting on board at the
Back Bay station, we found a seat
near the rear end of the car.
"soon after the tram pulled out I i
happened to look around and saw the !
conductor apparently expostulating
with a rather shabby looking specimen

"Finally the conductor shook his
head, said something I couldn't catch
and went on. The foreigner, a rajher
decent looking young fellow, gazed at
him despairingly, then buried his fate
in his hands and began to cry. With

; the man and prepared to take a nap.
"I was just beginning to doze when I
became aware that a man was stand
ing beside me in the ais,le, speaking to
me. 1 sat up and looked at him.. lie
was a rough appearing man. far from
prepossessing, clean shaven, with a
sort of bulldog face.
"'Say. gents, he began, '1 want to
know if you wouldn't like to help a fel
ler out.' '
"I stiffened instinctively, determined
to refuse to let him make a 'touch.'
. ""There's a poor young foreigner
back there,' ho went on with "a jerk' of
bis thumb toward the alien, still sit
ting with bowed bead", nS Tie's up
against it for fair. He can't speak a
word of English, and he wants to go
to New York, where he has friends.
" 'He got the idea somehow he could
do it for a dollar, all he's got; but, of
course, he can't, and they're going to
put him off the train when we get to
Providence. It's. mighty hard on a fel
ler like him, and there ain't any tell
ing what'll happen to him getting put
off in a strange city at 1 o'clock In the
morning. I thought maybe you'd be
willing to give a little to help him
"He stopped. looked us straight in
the eye and smiled sheepishly as if he
were ashamed of what he was doing
We gave him a dollar, and he went ou
through the car, and there were few of
the passengers who didn't respond to
the appeal. He came back counting
the money, and as he got to our seat I
heard him say:
There's a dollar more needed-l'll
make It up myself I' aud he pulled out
a couple of Hfty cent pieces and aridcd
them to the amount

fellow banded it over. and. giving It
to the conductor with the rest, the bull-
dog man said gruffly:
" There's his fare.'
"It slowly dawned on the alien what !
had been done for him, and as the con
ductor punched the rebate check and
handed it to him the gratitude in his
face was indescribable. lie couldn't
