CLOSELY GUARD BALLOTS SITUATION IS SO ACUTE THAT ACTING GOVERNOR REFUSES TO ANNOUNCE WHO ASKED THAT TROOPS BE DISPATCHED. (American News Service) Lexington, Ky., Nov. 1. The Lex ington company of the Kentucky Nat- ional Guard arrived today at Jackson, where it had been sent to preserve order at the election there. The i troops found the town divided into armed factions. The ballots to be used in the election are protected by a heavy guard and have been locked in a safe. Breathitt county feuds have come to a head again in the fight over the election. The situation is so acute that acting Governor Cox today reit erated his refusal to name the Jack-! son official who had sent in the call 1 for troops, declaring that publicity would expose 'hirn to revenge. On Special Train. i ne Lexington company was sent i to the scene on a special train, after! they had been quickly mobilized un- der Captain Sams at the direction of acting Governor Cox and Adjutant General P. P. Johnston. Gov. Cox remained at Frankfort to keep in close touch with the situation. Governor Willson is hurrying to Frankfort from New Orleans whence he was recalled by an urgent mes sage. The average daily clearings of the New York clearing house last year amounted to $243,413,023. NOW RAMPAG Colonel - John Sneed's Conversations on Domestic Problems Copyright. 1SO0. by C S. Yott. " VIII. Dangers of the Ele vated Nose I! vCT what's the matter with them, honey?" demanded the colonel. "Ain't they good peo ple? Ain't they honest? Don't they behave themselves about as well as any of your friends? Don't they" "Yes. papa, yes!" interrupted his daughter. "They're very nice people, aDd I have no fault to find with them, but" And Mr9. Rollins turned up her pretty little nose and gazed silent ly at the fire. "Uh. huh!" grunted the colonel. "1 understand. They just ain't In your class, accordin to your way of look in' at it. But. honey. I wouldn't twist my face up thnt way if I was you. It'll make wrinkles quicker than anything in the world, and the worst kind of wrinkles too. You know, there's wrin kles and wrinkles. Some wrinkles light up the plainest face with beauty. Yes. honey, that's a fact. And then there's some that make the most beau tiful face look vly. You're develop in' some of tftat kind when you turn up your nose in that way. Uh. huh! I thought thafd make you drop' it And now you're makin' some of the kind that add to beauty the wrin kles that come from smiles. "Yes. indeedy, my dear, the turned up nose is a dangerous thing. It not only makes ugly wrinkles on the face, but it makes ugly wrinkles on the brain. Never thought about that, did you? No, I reckon not. but it's true. I never saw a hu- vgz,t wrinkles os man brain, but mmB' they say it's all covered over withvrin kles. and the scientific fellows have a lot of theories about them. But I've got a notion that they're caused by the same thoughts and feelin's and emotions that put the lines on the countenauce. Anyhow. If an elevated nose don't make its mark on the outside of the, brain it does on the inside, and it ' amounts to the same thing, for the movements of the face that go to make 1 up what we call expression are notbin'j more than the sign of the workln cf: the mind. When you curl up your little proboscis, like you did a bit ago . j that's a sign that you was thinkin 'j yourself a little better, maybe a whole! lot better, than the people we wai talkin' about. "Now. honey, I want to tell yon tbati that's a pretty risky attitude for any.' body to take. I believe in a man thinkin' well of himself or a woman thinkin' well of herself, but when you begin to make comparisons between yourself and other folks to the disad vantage of the other folks you're get tin' on dangerous ground, for two reasons, in the first place, you're cul tivatin' an opinion of yourself that ain't warranted by the facts. You're settin yourself up on a pedestal that's full of cracks, and one of these fine, days It'll crumble to pieces, and down you'll drop like a load of bricks, for whenever a man or a woman raises himself in his mind above bis fellows he's gettin' ready for a fall. If he don't topple over of himself somebody will pull out the props from under him. and then the peo ple he's been lookin' down on will look down on him and laugh just laugh. That's the second reason why the fiirnorf nn haoa la fl fSJ bad business. It If M 1 snoils ton. and then it spoils your friends, for the b a b i t of thought that ex presses itself in t n e turned up . nose Is fatal to' the kind of selfj esteem that ev- j erybody ought to have, and it's fa tal to friend- A WEOSO rEKSPECTITE. snJp "You see, honey, an elevated nose is a good deal like one of those old fash ioned blunderbusses it hits a whole lot of people that you didn't aim at.j and whoever it hits it hurts. Nobody i can teli where it's goin to strike, and i so they get in the habit of dodgin'i whenever it comes around. There's a ! good many folks you can scold and; jlhnoa on1 fny-'H to t-n t f- -A A ' and keep on being friends, but just let 'em get the notion that you're sneerin' at 'em and it's all off. Most all of us have an idea that we're about as good as the next one. and not tun' makes us madder than a turned up nose, and the greater the difference between us in wealth or social station the madder we get about it "If you're goin to get the best there is oat of the world and out of the peo ple in It you've got to meet folks on the level. You go up to the top of a skyscraper buildln' and look out the window dowD at the men and women In the street below, and they all look mighty small not more'n half as big as you are. But wben you go down in the elevator and get out on the pave ment you find they average up about the same size as yourself. It's all a matter of the point of Tiew. and the turned up nose gives you a wrong per spective. It gives you false notions of your own importance and your own po sition, while everybody else can see that you're just one of the common run of folks and have no right to feel yourself ..wi. better tbao.jtfcsy .axe. If A JK I I War Wages Around Question Of Best Way to Cook a Ham Washington, Nov. 1. About th biggest war on record in Washington, since the famous Jubal Early defeat at Port Stevens, is being waged around the ham crop of the United States. The war started from a comparatively in significant cause. A hungry newspa per writer appeased his appetite b" writing a short editorial on the best way to cook a Virginia ham. Ham letters began coming in bunches. Ad vocates of the Virginia ham got t- fighting among themselves. One man would write of the virtues of a hog fed exclusively cn English chestnuts, an other favored the peanut as a porcine diet, and still another pinned his faith to acorns. Another Virginian, more bold than any other in his state, advocated turn ing the hog loose and letting him feed himself. All was going as merry as a marriage bell with Virginians at each other's throats, until Mrs. Chamji Clark, wife of the democratic leader in the house, got into it. "Down with Virginia hams," quoth And so you get ouVOf toucL and out ' of sympathy with the rest of the world around you. and then you begin to sour. anats just as certain as that THE OXLT GOOD TAEDSTICK. God made little apples. A sneer in the brain is a sign of fermentation, and fermentation, you know, comes mighty close to beia' rotten. "Now, then, gettin right down to brass tneks, as the fellow says, the only reason you've got for elevatin' your nose at the people we was talkin' about is that they don't run In your set. Well, what if they don't? Is your set the standard by which all others have t be measured? 1 reckon not. It takes all kinds of people to make a world, as you've beard before, and some of the best ones in it make the least show. "You can't tell by lookin' at the people you meet on the street how many of them's beneath you and how many's above you. You can't tell by lookin' at a woman's clothes or count in' the money she's got in the bank whether you've got a right to look down on her or she's got a right to look down on you. You can't tell by j hearin' a woman quote Ibsen whether, she's better or worse than you. It! ain't money or clothes or blood or culture that counts when it comes to measurin" up men and women. The only yardstick that's good anywhere on earth and in any society is char acter. That's common, or uncommon, to rich and poor, and your washer woman may have as much of it and be as much entitled to your respect as the president of your club. One of the two greatest men I ever had the honor to know was a professor of j tngiish in the state university; the "A M1GHTT WABBLY WOULD." other was a ditch digger who couldn't spell his own name. "But even when you size up people accordin to the standard of your club it ain't safe to turn up your nose, for this is a mighty wabbly world, and the folks that's up today may be down tomorrow, and the ones that's down tomorrow may be up at the top of the heap next week. If you're goin to judge people by that standard you've got no right to object If they measure1 you by the same rule, and it's mighty! embarrassin'. I imagine, to find the! folks you've been turnin up your nose at in a position to elevate their noses ; at you. But. say. little girl. It's bed time, and here I've ben fussin and i scoldin the whole evenin. Don't you i feel bad about it. though, honey. Your old daddy thinks you're the finest ever, but he don't want yoa to find it out ' Good night." Brief Truth. The female bargain hunter knows all ; the countersigns. ' The married beauty always looks upon her husband cs the beast. No woman wants her offspring: to pose as an object lesson at a mothers' meeting. One of the things a man can't un derstand is why his enemies seem to have so many friends. ; The smile of a good woman will do a man more good than a dozen handed j to him by a barteDder. j After a man has been married a ' year be can't see any reason why bis ' wife should want a new hat. I It sometimes happens that a man is kept from buying mining stock be- canse he hasn't got the ready cash. ! Once in awhile a man is too proud' to beg and too honest to steaL Then the only &!ternative be has left is to go to work. Occasionally- a married man does a ' lot of talking when be is away from tome, because that is about the only i Mrs. Clark: "the real place for ham. also hog and hominy. Is Missouri. J The letter brought a deluge. A man from Georgia wrote about the razor back hogs, a North Carolina man told about the absurdity of the Virginia ham cure, and argued that a ham cur ed with hickory chips could not com pare with one cured over the coals of , corn cobs. And so it went until aa ! Indiana man boasted of the Hoosier hog. The war is still on. with Senor Gonzales Qiesada. former ministe from Cuba, advocating Cuba's army or I hogs to capture the honors. I "We do not make a specialty of ham in our little Island," says Senor Quesada. "but we do have pork, and it is so delicious that it has beeome fam ous throushout the world." Ireland has entered the controversy, and Virginia is being re enforced with ! a bushel of letters. The editor of th paper conducting the ham war re quests that Charles Krohman.

HE MAY BE EXONERATED FURTHER INVESTIGATION OF THE COLLINSVILLE WRECK MAY BE TURNED OVER TO THE GRAND JURY AT NEXT SESSION. (Palladium Special) Hamilton, Ohio, Nov. I. Coroner Dr. John A. Burnett has announced that his official verdict in the Col linsville wreck would not be ready for several days yet. The verdict will be held up until all testimony given has been transcribed by the stenogra pher. , Although absolutely no official statement has been given out. still it seems very probable that In his ver dict Coroner Burnett will exonerate Ralph McDonald, the Richmond man. from any blame in the matter of open ing the Collinsville switch. McDon ald's straightforward story made pret ty much of a hit with the coroner and he seemed at the time the young man was telling his side of the story, to b very much impressed with the manner in which McDonald answered all ques tions. In an unofficial way it may be said that there is a very great possibility of the case being turned over to the grand jury for an investigation by li e coroner, and Dr. Burnett may not lay the blame for the tragedy upon any one man's shoulders. So many parts of the testimony conflict that it will require a careful reading upon Dr. Burnett's part In order that a just de cision can be reached.
