Tlir Indianapolis News recently pub

spondent, setting out. the neglected
condition of the grounds surrounding
the grave of Nancy Hunks, mother of

speaks of the neglected grounds and
that the commission that was to have
placed the grounds In order and care
for them has done practically noth

Russia's waning prestige in Asia
has permitted more than one oriental
people to raise its head and reassert
its national consciousness, says tho

however, just as he has added to tho

out a long-smoldering Arab revolution
which has already cost him several
of the important towns in the penin

The tenderfoot was a bold, had man
And a hold, bad man was he;
Ho went out west with a 'brolderod vest
And his lies wore a sight to ace.
Ho wore kid gloves on his soft, white

And tho tile he wore he loundly sworo

He had a big suit raso full of clothes
And he carried a dress still, too.
And his colored socks had crimson clocks
And his shirts were. inlc and blue.
And ho hit the I rait for tho cactus land
Where the cowboy i tiles and reigns.
With his simple smile in tho height of

And the cowboys sized him up,
And each sunburned one swore: "I'll

Wright speaks." said Captain Horace
McKay, "is made up of members of

"Considerable money has been paid
out. My balance on hand as treasurer
Is $02i).:7. The neglect complained ot

not been able to agree as to 'what
should be done. The idea was to be
gin by doing something of a perman

time to time hereafter. The whole
scheme as to what, should be done has
never been fully decided on. Some
wished an iron cure, others a house
on the hill. The governor should call
this commission together and some
thing should bo done. The grave is
in a naturally beautiful spot, readily
susceptible to improvement."
