SOME REALISTIC SCENES
The Dreamer Still Pictures Our County
Seat a Modern Pompeii
Special Correspondence to The lire
continued from last week
Manitoo Springs Hopkins Co Ky
July 15th 1892 I
So many interesting discoveries
are now coming to light all over
the city that it is difficult to keep
up with them or to do them justice
in a hurried correspondence Upon
leaving the council chamber the
other cvcntngmycytT was attract
ed by a large crowd gathered in
another part of the city where the
work of excavation was being
pushed Upon reaching the scene
I found the interest had been
awakened by the finding of a pair
of lovers in a hammock I could
sec nothing unusual in this Our
experience is that it is hardly ne
cessary to leave home to find such
sights However upon inquiry I
found that there was not so much
interest manifested in the lovers
themselves as there was in their
surroundings for crouching be
hind them and hidden from their
view by what was once dense
foliage was found a little negro
boy holding in his right hand a
miniature pnonograpn in sucli a
position as to catch each word
spoken He is supposed to have
been the servant of some rival
suitor It was certainly a most
unique and ingenious scheme for
thwarting a rival
The phonograph was in a re
markable state of preservation
and when wound up and set going
reproduced the conversation of the
lovers with amazing distinctness
The lovers when brought to light
and exposed to the air vanished
very haturally but their words
had been indelibly stamped and
transfixed by the phonograph
They were mostly loves words
accompanied by that fervency of
speech which would proclaim
them oi the hearts coiuaue and
- ti - r
stamp Truly love knows neither
time nor place season nor circum
stance Twas the same with
Eve as with Eves children Tis
the same in Orient as in Occident
cottage castle or palace God
given and holy it comes adown the
centuries sacred and inviolable
bearing the imprint of heavens
mintage These lovers made love
in that day anil age as our lovers
do in this age Love is ever new
and sweet ever modern and re
freshing To attempt to add to
its beauty and perfection would be
like adding to a birds wing that
God made To attempt to add to
its power and majesty like adding
to gravity Gods lieutenant The
Earth lies in the soft arms of the
atmosphere
It verily seemed to nic a sacri
lege of gravest import to hear this
soulless phonograph parading the
sacred secrets of two loving hearts
before this promiscuous incon
gruous crowd and after no little
expense or trouble I finally suc
ceeded in gaining possession of
the instrument It sits before me
on my desk now discoursing to
me in dulcet tones of love in the
long long ago It matters not to
me that it speaks of persons and
things I have not known and may
not know It matters not that
local incidents scenes and indi
viduals arc all and must of neces
sity be forever meaningless to us
in this age Nevertheless it speaks
of love and tis well Ordinarily
I would hesitate to transcribe its
secrets
The little phonograph begins
with unsatisfactory indistinctness
which I have thought might have
been occasioned by the approach
of the lovers to the shady bower
The sound grows more and more
definite however like order
evolved from chaos until the pho
nograph gives forth a rich manly
voice sweet soft and low as
though his whole soul went out
with each word as he proceeds
with the conversation as follows
But you must have noted these
long drawn sighs my agitation
and downcast eyes when in your
presence How that 1 nave Unit
ed helplessly hopelessly with
my heart uplifted in holiest rever
ence towards that bright partic
ular star whence the compass of
my hearts noblest affections ever
points Yes I have fallen into
the mazy stream Jf i love j pnd
buoyed by hope I drift toward a
sea of bliss or sighs Eachlqf
thy radiant smiles hath been tQrno
a beauteous fragrant flower stort
ing that stream at which I have
wildly clutched in drifting by
Each kindly hopeful word a glit
tering gem beside those flowers
which 1 have madly treasured
Each several lineament of thy
queenly countenance have I but
oo carefully studied as the
dus mariner doth study the face
neaven to Know wnat it tiotn
portend of fair or foul sailing
w drifting thus wouldst thou
freight my barque with such mer
chandise but to wreck me It
looted to me like he had made a
goo play and had I been umpire
I thifjk Ljjvould have given him
his basriSHe cornea back arhini
in the neat inning like this My
dear Press you do caress my ears
with such beautiful words that I
should be translated were I to
allow myself to place full confi
dence ia their true depth and
meaning I have learned how
ever that there is a merchantable
commodity quite current in the
marts even of our best society
denominated taffy with which I
am persuaded you are well stocked
and amply able to dispense the
same quite lavishly
She scored a hit got safely to
her first and was playing off to
make second on a pass ball when
he comes on deck in this shape
Indeed my fair one you do
greatly wrong me but for answer
to thy quiet pleasantry I might
with lesser grace yet greater ar
gument refer to another com
modity equally current upon this
same Board of Trade It is a pro
duct of the bakery and known as
cake which indeed all young
ladies take But were I the worlds
baker and of such prodigious girth
of pocket book that I might corner
the market in the production of
this concentrated shapely sweet
ness and we were Earths only in
habitants Id still lose no time nor
sleep hunting for a market know
ing full well youd exhaust the pro
duct of the worlds bakery youd
take the cake
It was a beautiful play and
looked as though the ball would
go claaruovetfthafence so that he
could walk in home but she
stopped him on third with this
little play But Pressie dear I
am no seer as you well know but
were I that queenly one which you
would still insist upon with heart
aglow dwelling in etherial atmos
phere do you not think if I did but
wink upon a bakers suit with
bakery to boot twould be the
heighth of inconsistency my dear
It looked as though she intended
to let him die on the third base so
near home and happiness But
he spit on his hands kept his eye
on the pitcher and stole off from
third in this shape Sweet one a
halo of radiance tints and tem
pers the very atmosphere which
simpers round about you hovering
and evanescent Thy form and
feature are the least among the
things with which thou are blest
for thou hast mental qualities
Thy mind and soul like a clear
calm lake upon a mountain top
reflect only heaven and heavenly
things Thou art indeed such
sweet perfection there could sure
ly be no objection to the tenor of
thine argument And yet me
thinks should the compass of thy
winks incline towards the greatest
baker in the world it would still
seem a fitting match and that we
were well mated for life For
should not the greatest of all great
bakers have the sweetest of all
cake takers for a wife
The umpire looked puzzled and
the crowd yelled Judgment1
while John Toliver offered to bet
the baby against a package of
cigarettes with Tom Rash that
cousin Press got there But the
umpire lit a fresh cigarette blew
his nose right hard and said not
out It was hard to tell what the
captain of the cake takers would
do next but she pouted just the
least little bit put in a new pitch
er and her little game started off
like this Pressie mine thou
wouldst incline my merry heart to
thy mode of reasoning For
viewing it from the standpoint
which you have established in your
premise namely that you and I
were Earths soul inhabitants Im
inclined to think Id surely wink
upon that bakers suit seeing he
was the last man on earth
George Atkinson was offering 5
to 1 on the cake takers as the in
ning closed and it looked to those
in the front rows like he and Toli
ver yould come to blows Tom
Rash was in the field while Pressie
was playing to catcher and the
game wagged on like this Di
vinest one reasoning in that same

A GREAT COMBINATION
Kentucky Coal and Northwestern Iron
Its Importance to the State
But few of our readers are pre
pared to accept the statement that
the coking coal fields of Kentucky
by the present routes of travel are
from forty to one hundred miles
nearer the great deposits of Bes
semer ore in the Gogebic Meno
miniee and Marquette fields than
the coke from Connellsvillc Pa
but such is true There is no in
terest in the State the develop
ment of which is so important to
its growth -and as that
of its wonderful deposits of coking
coal When this is accomplished
it will stimulate every industry in
the State The influx of popula
tion brought about by these new
conditions will especially benefit
the farmer in making a home mar
ket for all his products
The amount of coke used by the
Western iron and steel plants may
be estimated from the annual out
put of the Illinois Steel Company
which is 1250000 tons It is true
this is the largest plant in the
world being the consolidation of
many smaller plants into this pow
erful corporation What a revenue
it would bring to Kentucky if all
the coke used by this one company
alone was drawn from her coal
fields What an army of men it
would employ 1 What a great in
crease there would be in the tax
able wealth of the counties now
unable to pay the expense of their
county organization without State
aid And yet all of these changes
are possible of being accomplished
if only the right methods are pur
sued
Recently Kentuckys distin
guished State geologist Professor
Proctor has visited the iron ranges
of the Northwest in company with
gentlemen from the East and West
representing many millions of
money some of whom will visit
the Appalachian coal field at an
early date upon his invitation
These capitalists are heavy invest
ors in iron lands not for the pur
pose of speculation but for de
velopment and when convinced of
their value have frequently made
deals of from one to three million
dollars It is to their push and
energy backed by unlimited cap
ital that the Northwest has grown
so rapidly and become one of the
richest sections of the Union
Should Professor Proctor succeed
in demonstrating the value of
Kentucky coal lands to the satis
faction of these iron magnates it
would result in the consolidation
of the coal and iron interests from
which the State would quickly
reap greater returns than the en
tire cost of the geological survey
from its inception Professor
Proctor fully appreciates the value
of capital in clearing the titles and
developihg these lands and his
earnest effort toward bringing men
of this class into the State for in
vestigation should commend itself
to every progressive Kcntuckian
He states that the prospects for
introducing Kentucky coke into
the markets of the Notthwest were
never so promising as to day In
testimony to the value of a portion
of the work of the geological sur
vey we cite for example the coal
and timber interests of Bell county
which in the last few years have
made it one of the revenue paying
counties of the State To the dis
semination of this information from
the geological department is traced
the great development that has
there been made Industrial

THAT
Germanys Great Ev Cuancellor Does
Expect to He Prosecuted for His
Recent Freedom of Speech
Not
A newspaper correspondent in
an interview with Prince Bismarck
gathers the following from the lips
of the ex Chancellor
And so you are an American
were Prince BismarckV first words
to me Your people I fear will
hardly understand the meaning of
our present excitement here al
though I hope their sympathies
are with me as of old
I am criticised here because I
have spoken my mind he con
tinued but my critics seem to
forget or ignore the fact that it has
always been my custom to speak
frankly And their objections ex
tend to the manner in which I
have expressed myself Here too
I can only regret the need of
wounding but I have ever lived
up to that line from our great
Heine Many I have scratched
and not a few have been bitten by
me No I never was a lamb
This was said with a pleasant
smile as though he enjoyed the
memory of his many contests
I have been expecting he
continued with a touch of sar
casm that the next charge
brought against me would be that
I had sold the information at so
many marks a line although I
dont know whether this would be
much more serious than the report
that I had spoken through the
Hamburger Nachrichtcn because I
was accused of having a financial
interest in the paper I suppose I
might however construe that into
a compliment for I am confident
that journalism pays better than
farming
Your Excellency must have
been in very good humor of late to
take so many reporters into your
confidence the correspondent re
marked
Not at all answered Bismarck
quickly It was quite the other
way The reporters suddenly de
veloped the humor themselves or
to be more correct they found the
surest way to get my view was to
interview me Any journalist who
is properly introduced will find me
almost at any time willing to sjieak
and it is only the hesitancy of the
German press that made it pos
sible for the Hamburger Nach
richtcn to become my organ Dr
Hoffman was the first and only
journalist who had sufficient enter
prise to ask my opinion in political
matters
After that young man in Berlin
dismissed me I was naturally
pleased to find the doctor on my
side I invited him to call again
and as his first article had made a
sensation he like a good journal
ist did not hesitate to avail him
self of my invitation Then it grew
on us the doctor made it a regular
practice of seeking advice from me
and it gave me real pleasure to
help him out
The doctor has been sorely
persecuted for his pains the cor
respondent remarked
One gets used to that sort of
thing Prince Bismarck respond
ed Some of the papers that
alternately try me for lese majeste
and high treason nowadays would
have been dead twenty years or
more ago if it had not been for my
support The National Zeitung
and North American Gazette are
papers of that stamp Other pa
pers that antagonize me do it to
create a sensation or perhaps some
of them out of personal malice or
better yet in the anticipation of
arresting the attention of the gov
ernment The Freisinnige Zeitung
is loudly against me because I
have never been noticeably kind
o its editor Eugene Richter But
my newspaper enemies I fear
would make a good many columns
of interview
One more question Do you
anticipate any trouble on account
of the recent interviews that have
been published
Certainly not said the prince
That young man in Berlin is too
clever to force me into taking the
offensive He cannot afford to
make himself ridiculous As to
the threats of the press anent the
charges of high treason these are
too stupid to deserve serious at
tention I trust I know more
about the law than most of the
editors who aie dictating to me
I what I ought to do or warning me
not to go too far
NO 32

j JX H
On general principles I may
say I love the German Empire and
will do everything in my power ta
uphold it but I am no admirer of
Count Caprivi
Prince Bismarck received a dep
utation of Wurtemburgers some
few days ago and being called
upon to make a speech said I
am glad to see my South German
friends rally to my support as
their presence proves without
doubt that I still have their sym
pathies in spite of whalthejgov
crnment newspapers are saying
about me Indeed I hold that
the majority of the nation is on my
side

have us influence the wage earners
by making them contented They
blame us because we do not do
this they think that we should in
spire that element with loftier
ideals They would have us de
nounce the reckless methods of the
proletariat It is thought that we
should raise our voice in warning
and denunciation toward the crimes
of the working class
But if we do this what is the
result The wage earners say that
we are speaking in the interest of
wealth owners They charge us
with belonging to the upper classes
they tell us that we do not know the
conditions they assert that we are
selfish or insincere they believe
that we care more to preserve our
position than to improve the con
dition of our fellows They sug
gest that we stay with our own
class where we belong and not to
try to influence the vast element
with which we have no sympathy
or of whose interest we have no ap
preciation
On the other hand when speak
ing of the social problem to the
wage workers the latter element
would like to have us denounce the
capitalists They think jdiat we
should lay heavy stress on the
crimes of all corporations They
would have us constantly point out
the selfishness of the wealth-owners
They think we should dwell
on the oppression which the em
ployer manifests toward the labor
er They are pleased and glad
when we burn with indignation
over the crimes of wealth But if
we do this then the wealth owners
of the world accuse us of taking
sides with the laboring class
They tell us that we do not know
what we are talking about that
we arc pi suing a lin of senti
ment rather than a straight course
of justice It is suggested that we
let the labor problem alone and
preach the bible
The perplexity is great The
difficulty for us as clergy is that we
cannot take up exclusively the
cause of any one class and yet it
is so very hard to have any in
fluence unless one class does re
cognize us as belonging just to
themselves Rev W L Sheldon

THE WIFES NAME SACRED
Mr Cleveland has written a let
ter disapproving of the use of his
wifes name by the Frances Cleve
land Influence Club of New York
He claims that the name is too
sacred in the home circle and
means so much to him as wife and
mother that it should he spared in
the organization and operation of
clubs designed to exert political
influence The sentiment does
him great credit and will be
echoed in the heart of cvtry true
woman in the land Besides while
Grover is fully aware of the im
portance of womans co operation
he knows that the battle of next
November is to be fought on other
grounds than those of mere senti
ment
