The Parcels Post .v
The Parcel Post system established
by your Uncle Sim is having a splendid
effect upon the express companies thro'
out the country. Instead ot being so
independent, as heretofore, they are
bowing submissively to the will of the
people. The following letter from W.
Mr Barrett, president of the Adams Ex
press Co., to officers, agents and employ
ees of the company, will be self-explanatory:
"Because of many inquiries from em
ployes and others, it is deemed proper
to state the attitude and policy of the
Adams Express Co, toward the parctl
post inauguarted on the 1st instant:
"The company appreciates that -the
parcel post has been established in res
ponse to a widespread and persistent de
mand and anticipates that it bas come
to stay. The company's policy will be
to devote its energies to rendering a ser
vice even more efficient and satisfacto
ry than in the past, and ail officers and
employes are directed to extend every
effort to that end. The company does
not wish any of iu employes to adopt a
policy of fault finding towards the par
cel post, but expect them by their effi
ciency to demonstrate to iu patrons the
the necessity for the express company's
distinctive service."
The French Presidency.
Last Friday, January 10th, occurred
the election of a new president of the
French Republic. In France no special
significance attaches to any such day
as the "Tuesday after the first Monday
in November." The republio choose a
new president when the term of the
actual president expires, or when he
dies or resigns, for there have been
French presidents who resigned, and
chooses him always for a full term of
seven years. On three occasions before
this the election has fallen on January
The presidential election in France is
interesting to Americans chiefly by rea
son of the differenc between it and
presidential elections in this country.
There are no party conventions or presi
dential primaries, there is no popular
vote, and no electoral colleges. On the
appointed day the members of the Sen
ate and the Chamber of Deputies meet
in joint session, and then and there
choose the new head of the state by
joint ballot. In contrast with the year
long preparation and excitement that
characterize our national canvass, there
is little discussion of the pending elec
tion, and that little mostly regards per
sonal qualifications and is devoid of
heat. Moreover, whereas in the United
States there is eager maneuvering for
a nomination, in France there is much
reluctance among fit candidates to per
mit their names to be used. Two of the
most prominently mentioned statesmen
recently refused to accept the office.
Nevertheless, the presidency of
France is a position of great dignity and
real power. With less authority than
the President of the United States, the
incumbent yet has greater influence on
publio affairs, on legislation, and on
the personnel of the government than
the King of England; for although in
France, as in Great Britain, the minis
try hold office only so long as it has the
support of a majority in the Chamber
of Deputies, the president can, and
sometimes does, name individual cabi
net officers, and with the consent of the
Senate he can dissolve the Chamber of
Deputies even against its will.
The constitution of France bas now
been in force for thirty eight years; and
the only changes in thirty-four years
are a few machinery of electing depu
ties. No previous form of government
since 1733, when Louis XVI was be
headed, has lasted so long. Moreover,
France is a country where the people
rule They have universal suffrage and
the kind of government they like, yet
they have to make ony infrequent
visits to the polls, and are never called
upon to study te political records of a
long list of candidates. Youth's Com

Lester Bryant
The death of Lester Bryant is, seem
ingly, one of life's tragedies against
which no human provision can be made,
Selected as Kentucky's champion boy
corn grower to be the guest of the Ag
ricultural Department in Washington, a
delayed train cauta I him to miss the
committee appointed to take charge of
him at the station, A desire to save
something from the expense account al
lowed him, induced him to go a cheap
boarding house instead of to the Ebbett
House, where a room had been reserved
for him. Ignorance of the city's ways
caused him to blow out the gas on go
Ling to bed. Ilia dead body was found
the next day near the door of his room,
where he had fallen in an effort to es
cape. His parents are poor. The same qual
ities which gained for him first place in
a contest with the boys of the State
prompted his thought of saving his mon
ey, the better to fit himself for useful
ness on his return home.
It is all very pitiful and sympathy for
those be leaves behind is as general as
it is heartfelt. But, if it be true thai
life is after all but a school, it may well
chance that wiser power has called to
new duties one who in so brief a span
had so well learned tho meaning of life's
duties. Louisville Times.

Louisville May Have a Blue
Grass League Gub.
The following from the Louisville
Times will be of interest to base ball
fans in this section:
Louisville may have continuous base
ball next season. Plans are now ' under
consideration whireby all Association
club owners may be enabled to increase
their revenues by admitting clubs from
smaller circuits to play at, their parks
when their own clubs are out of the
city. At the meeting of the Association
recently in Chicago the matter was dis
cussed informally and it was discover
ed that a majority of the magnates fav
ored a plan to admit minor clubs under
certain restrictions. Thus tne Blue
grass League would be permitted to
place a team in Louisville, providing
the club were controlled by President
Wathen, of the Colonels, who could use
it as a farm for his Class A team; al
ready the Central International League
has been promised admission to St. Paul
and Minneapolis by Messrs. Lennon and
Cantillon; the Ohio State League will
place a club at Columbus and the Wisconsin-Illinois
will invade Milwaukee.
It would be a ten-strike for the Blue
grass League to locate a team in Louis
ville. The games would not have to
draw very large crowds to pay expenses:
in fact, the Sunday dates alone would
meet all revenue requirements, it is be
lieved. Placing a team in Louisville
would necessitate the dropping of one
of the present Bluegrass cities, or the
taking in of another town, to make it a
six or eight-club circuit. This matter
probably will be settled within the next
ten days.
If Louisville enters the Bluegrass
League a number cf the youngsters who
played last season on the Old Grand-dad
team, pennant winners of the Afternoon
League, under Manager Kneblkamp,
will be given places on the team.
"Mr. Bob" will be at the Opera House,

Foreshadows Banking
Carter Glass, of Virginia, Chairman
of the House subcommittee which is
framing a banking reform bill, has
written an article for the New York
Journal of Commerce on the essentials
of a sound banking system. These he
holds to be a sound elastic note issue,
based on commercial credits, a redis
count agency for commercial paper.
and more efficient bank regulation.
Mr. Glass has nothing to say about
centralized reserves. It is reported
from Washington that the subcommit
tee is debating whether to pool the
bank reserves in a single reservoir, or
to establish a limited number of dis
tricts, each to hold its own reserves.
As chairman of the body which will
frame the most important bill (or at
least it is certainly the most conspic
uous) to be presented to Congress on
this vital issue;. Mr. Glass looms as per
haps the most important figure in the
bankirg reform movement; and what
he has to say on the question is there
fore of supreme importance.
Upholds Penalty Against Dis
honest Horse Trader.
For a second time the Court of Ap
peals Tuesday affirmed the sentence of
a horse trader for misrepresentations
concerning the character of the animal
he was selling, which amounted to ob
taining money or property by false pre
tenses, when it affirmed the Calloway
Circuit Court in giving an indetermi
nate sentence to Onis Hale. He sold a
worthless mare to Isaac Woodall for
$75. About a year ago a Graves county
horse trader was convicted under simi
lar circumstances of obtaining property
by false pretenses. Defects in the in
dictment, employing the ' get" instead
of. "obtain," and "horse" instead of
"mare" were pleaded in the Hale. case,
but were declared to be immaterial by
the court.

"Judge Benton has reached the con
clusion that it pays to be sick. He has
found that when a fellow is sick his
friends come to the front with messag
es of cheer and many other good things.
While he was sick last week his larder
was pretty well filled, fresh backbone,
young chickens, dressed and alive, bot
tles of cream, a box of oranges and grape
fruit from Jacksonville, Florida, flowers
from the greenhouse, a book on Chris
tian Science, two bottles of real grip
medicine, and many other good things
were showered on him. He felt like it
would be a pretty good thing to be sick
