This OF is the trade markwhich Is on every genuine bottle of Is Circulating Copies of Re cent Speech, All Over the State of Kentucky. This Question Comes Up in Consideration of Hep burn Measure. M NISTRAT ON DO NOT SEE THE IDEA. "IF FORMER GOVERNOR IS OUT, WHY DOES HE CIRCULATE THIS MATERIAL" MANY PEOPLE ARE ASKING. Louisville. Ky., March 22. When former Governor J. C. W. Beckham de clared in his recent speech at Frank fort that he never again expected to seek an office at the hands of the peo ple of Kentucky, he did not say that he never expected to take any further interest in politics, nor did he declare that he would turn down any office if it were offered him. The belief of many politicians that Beckham is to take an exceedingly active interest in politics is verified by the statement, made by Democrats close to Beckham, that between 200,000 and $250,000 copies of the former Governor's Frankfort speech were mailed to Democrats throuphout the commonwealth. It is understood that the work was directed by Percy Haly, the Governor's trusted friend, who has in his possession the name and ad dress of every Democratic voter in the state. Haly is a tireless and able pol itician. If Beckham is out of politics entirely it is difficult for the politi cians to see why his speeches should fie sent broadcast through the com monwealth at this time, with the state convention only a few weeks off. There is also a persistent rumor emanating from friends of Beckham that opposition may be given to Na tional Committeeman Urey Woodson. A strong Beckham man recently made the statement that, although Woodson's paper supported Beckham for United States Senator, the Nation al Committeeman never offered his services to Beckham during the long-drawn-out senatorial contest, but was the first man to appear on the scene at Frankfort after W. O. Bradley's elec tion. PILES CURED IN 6 TO 14 DAYS. PAZO OINTMENT is guaranteed to cure any case of Itching, Blind, Bleed ing or Protruding Piles in 6 to 14 days or money refunded. oOc. MftJ.

Efforts are be ing made by the Italian government to discourage emigration of working men to the United States. The crisis in the United States last fall was a good thing for Italy. The Italian gov ernment had become alarmed at the steady outgo of its men to America and the authorities were much pleased when the tide turned the other way last fall, and many Italians returned to their fatherland. It is the desire of the government to discourage emi gration and the stories told by the men who have returned recently have tended to aid the government in its plans.

Dr. Hammond de clares that it is possible to stamp out crime by use of X-ray. It remains to be seen whether or not his discovery will work in practice. AIMS 10 PREVENT .GREAT FIRE HORRORS Effective Arm of Red Cross Is Being Organized. New York, March 2S. To help pre vent such disasters as the Collinwood school fire is the object of a trained army which is now being organized throughout this State. To teach ordinary care and fore thought for the prevention of accident and what to do in moments of danger to prevent injury or loss of life," is one of the main purposes of the Grand Le gion of the Red Cross, in which rep resentative young men in every com munity are to be enrolled. With the lesson of the Cleveland fire in mind, every effort' is beins made by the or ganizers of this movement here today to place its services before the people of the State as quickly as possible. Four or more legions, each with four relief columns, sixteen detachments, and sixty-four squads, will compose the legion, which is to be counted upon as an effective arm of the American Na tional Red Cross. SHARPENING A PENCIL. In This Act. It In Snid. Ton May Read a Man's Character. No woman should marry a man till she has seeu him sharpen a lead pen cil. She can tell by the way he does it whether he is suited to her or not. Here are a few infallible rules for her guidance in tln matter: The man who holds the point toward him and close up against his shirt front is slow and likes to have secrets. He is the kind of man who when the dearest girl in the world rinds out that there are "others' and asks him who they are and what he means by call ing on them will assume an air of ex cessive dignity. The man who holds the pencil out at arm's length and whittles away at 1t, hit or miss, is impulsive, jolly, good natured and geuerous. He who leaves a blunt poiut is dull and plodding and will never amount to much. He is really good hearted, but finds his chief pleasure In the commonplace things of life. He who sharpens his pencil an inch or more from the point is hih strung and imaginative and subject to ex uberant flights of fancy. He will al ways be seeking to mount upward and accomplish things iu the higher re gions of business and art. and his wife's greatest trouble will be to hold him down to earth and prevent his flying off altogether on a tangent. The man who sharpens his pencil all around smoothly and evenly, as though it were planed off in au automatic sharpener, is systematic and slow to anger, but he is so uudeviating from a fixed principle that he would drive a woman with a sensitive temperament to distraction in less than six months. On the contrary, he who jumps ir and leaves the sharpened wood as jag ged as saw teeth around the top has a nasty temper and will spank the baby on the slightest provocation. There are certain women who can manage that kind of man beautifully, however, and ifhe gets a wife with a calm, persuasive eye ha will come down from his high horse in a few miuufes and be as meek as a lamb. The man who doesn't stop to polish the poiut of lead once the wood is cut away has a streak of coarseness in his nature. He who shaves off the lead till the point is like a needle Is refined, deli cate and sensitive. He will not be likely to accomplish so much as his more common brother, but he will nev er shock you and is without doubt a good man to tie to. New York Press. It is a pleasing custom in the French Senate to have the oldest member pre side at the opening of the annual ses sion. The senator now entitled to that honor is M. Porriquet, ninety-two years old and paralyzed. He was recently equal t the occasion, for he had him self carried in a chair to the' senate and to the platform, where he pre sided acceptably. Orders have been posted in the shops of the Pennsylvania railway system prohibiting swearing among the men while at work. The penalty will be an enforced vacation. GIVES TOO MUCH POWER. FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WOULD HAVE MORE THAN THE COURTS AND THIS IS THE THING WHICH IS NOT DESIRED. Washington, March 28. Something is destined to happen to the Hepburn bill, which was introduced last week and provides for a reconstruction of the Sherman anti-trust law in accord ance with the president's ideas, before it is reported to the house for passage. The bill is now before the committee on judiciary, some of whose members have decided ideas upon constitution al matters and upon the tendency of concentrating further power in the hands of the national administration, aside from the question of who is president. These men doubt the ad visability of extending the authority of the administration over industrial corporations which do an interstate business. They take the position that the Hepburn bill would give to the Federal government altogether too much power over the business of the country and deprive the courts of the determination of whether a combina tion is actually in restraint of trade and violation of the Sherman anti trust law. They prefer not to curtail the jurisdiction of the courts in this respect, and it. is their purpose to seek to modify the Hepburn bill so that it will not be readily recognized by those who participated in drafting it.

JAP EXCLUSION BILL No Action Will Be Taken by The Present Congress On Measure. AN AGREEMENT IS MADE. Washington, March 2S. A tentative agreement, has been reached between the house of representatives delega tion from the Pacific coast and the house committee on foreign affairs, by which a program has been mapped out to postpone action on the Japan ese exclusion bill until the next ses sion of congress. The foreign affairs committee has told the Pacific coast men that, while it is satisfied the bill should be passed, it prefers to give ample time for a test of the executive steps that have been taken to solve the Japanese immigration problem. The coast men have argued that by next December the whole country will see that the president's arrangement with Japan is effective. The committee is reported to be in such a frame of mind on the subject that it will report the bill for passage next session provided there is evi dence that the administration's ar rangement has been ineffective.

The Vnfortanute Lev Story of a T"a inoui DiiKlih Writer. Hannah M'uv was burn on Feb. 2. 174., at Stiipleion, iu Gloucestershire, ! her father bring the master of a 1 j school in the neighborhood. Iu 17.17 1 her eldest sister, Mary, who was then 1 twenty-one, with her sifters Elizabeth and Sarah, opened a ladies' school in Trinity street. Bristol, taking Hannah and l;cr yountier sister, Patty, who were then respectively twelve and ten years of nire. as pupils. The school was a great success, and Hannah be came a highly cultivated girl. Some where about the year 1707 she made the acquaintance of a Mr. Turner of Belmont. He was a wealthy bachelor, considerably older than herself and the owner of a lino estate near Flax Kour tou. in Somersetshire. She is describ ed as being at this time an exceedingly pretty girl, with delicate features and beautiful eyes. These characteristics she retained to the end of her life, as the portrait of her by Pickersglll in the national portrait gallery clearly shows. She became a constant visitor at Belmont and in due course of time . received from Mr. Turner a proposal ( of marriage, which she accepted. She I withdrew from her connection with the school and made all peparatious for her wedding. This, however, never took place. Three times was the day fixed and as often for some unintelligible reason postponed by Mr. Turner. His affec tion for her seems to have been sin cere, but he was a man of a curious and rather gloomy disposition, and his strange conduct may possibly Ik? refer red to some mental perversity. At last her friends interfered and insisted on the engagement being broken off. Mr. Turner was very anxious to make a set tlement upon her. and, though for some time she declined to entertain the pro posal, she was finally persuaded by Sir James Stonehouse to accept an an nuity of 200 a year. This unfortunate affair did not interfere with the friend ship and respect which Mr. Turner continued to feel for her, and at his death he left her a legacy of 1,000. But It probably left its mark on her, and. though she subsequently received two offers of marriage, she declined them both. New York Tribune. SOME FIRST OCCASIONS.

BELIEVES COTTON EXCHANGES INIQUITOUS INSTITUTIONS DE SIGNED TO ROB COTTON GROW ERS OF PROFITS OF INDUSTRY. Washington, March 28. Representa tive Burleson of Texas is leading a sec ond attack upon the men who gamble in cotton. This has been a pet hobby of Mr. Burleson's for many years and each session he has introduced a bill to do away with speculation in this sta ple product of the South. Burleson openly boasts that his object is to close up the cotton exchanges. He thinks they are iniquitous institutions de signed to rob the hard-working cotton growers of the profits of their indus try. The Burleson bill makes it unlawful for any person or association to send or to receive by mail, telegraph or tel ephone, any message relating to a con tract, for future delivery of cotton with out intending that thr cotton so con tracted for shall be actually deUvred or received. Punishment by fines and imprisonment are provided for viola tion of the proposed law. There is al so a prohibition against the sending by any of these agencies of any notes, ac counts or records of the transaction of any produce exchange covering con tracts for future deliveries. NEW PROBLEM CONCERNING POLICY Question Comes Up in Regard To Imported Foods. Washington, March 2S. The ques tion regarding the use of sulphate of copper in imported foods, which is being debated at the department of agriculture and by the cabinet officers who have charge of the pure food law is raising a new problem concerning policy in administration. Heretofore in considering questions of preserva tives and coloring matters the govern ment has had to do solely with sub stances used both in the United States and abroad. Benzoate of soda, for in stance, is used far more largely here ti.nn in foreign countries, and the same is true of some of the coloring sub stances which have been put under the ban. But in the case of sulphate of copper a peculiar situation exists. American manufacturers and canners do not seem to care what is done with reference to the use of this dye. They (!o not employ it to any extent and the only persons affected are the importing grocers, who bring in goods in which it occurs, chiefly from France. This raises in acute form the issue whether we intend to be more or less strict with reference to our domestic products than with regard to those produced abroad.
