Wi acknowledge with thanks the re
ceipt of a handsome volume of 400 pag

Charles C. Anderson, of Richmond, Ya ,
wbo makes valuable contribution to

The object of the book is to show that
almost as many Southern men fought
in the Union as in the Confederate ar
mies. After an exhaustive research.
requiring much time and great labor,
Mr. Anderson reaches the conclusion
that while less than a million Sourhem
ers composed the armies of the Confed
eracy, 290,579 white soldiers living in
the South, 137,670 negro soldiers and ap
proximately 200,000 Southern-born men
living in the North, aggregating 634,255
Southern soldiers fought for the preser
vation of the Union. These were in
large part from Maryland, Kentucky
and Missouri and East Tennessee, tho'
the mountains of North and South Car
olina, Georgia and Alabama . made con
siderable consribulions. Kentucky fur-
nirhed more Federal soldieis than the
State of Maine, her number beinrf 75,
760, which was greater than the enlist
ments from Connecticut, New Hamp
shire, Vermont, Minnesota or Rhode Is
land. There were 160 Southern Federal
generals and their achievements are
told of in volumes. Kentucky, as usual,
bore off many of the honors. The prin
cipal battles of the war are described
with reference to the part these South
ern Federals played, and the book is
unique, interesting and instructive. The
price is 12 net, or it can be had for (2.20
from the publishers. The Neale Pub
lishing Co., New York City, which in
eludes the postage. It is well worth
any one's money or time, as it contains
much concerning the war of fifty years
ago which has not her3lofore been published.
How to Judge People.
x To get along with your neighbors, to
be on felicitous terms with your rela
tives, to enjoy the organizations of
society, such as churches and parties,
and to succeed in business, it is impor
tant to be a good judge of men. Here
are a few hints:
To judge men correctly you have to
like them. You can never rely upon
your estimate of any one you dislike.
If, therefore, a certain person irritates,
angers or disgusts you, be careful to
form no judgment at all of him, for it
is sure to be wrong.
This is a very vital point. There is
no insight into character without love.
Just learn that truth by heart, please;
because it is about the truest truth
there is.
To judge men justly you must be in
dependent of them. Your opinion of
any one from whom you expect favors
or fear harm is not worth a cent.
Vanity, pride, egotism and all such
forms of sensitiveness of self, are fatal
to correct judgment. Dr. Frank Crane.
Don't forget that a special feature of
the show are the educational features,
arranged for your benefit. Come and
take advantage of the opportunities of

ML Jackson Sanitarium, Indi
anapolis, Indiana.
.Hearing that a number of Madison
county people had been ridded of rheu
matism there and fate having decreed
that I be a sufferer from that pesky di
sease, I hied off to Ml Jackson Sanita
rium, Indianapolis, some two weeks ago
to try the virtue of the baths -at that
well-known Institution. Before the half-
dozenth "dip" I felt improvement and
by the time t he bakers dozen was reach
ed, "rheumatics" had taken its flight.
I would be ungrate'ul did I not feelgood
toward the health-giving plaoe, from
which thousands have gone sound of
body and light of heart, and I shall feel
it my bounden duty to tell the rheu
matic sufferer with whom I come in
contact the work MtJackson and its
lithia and alkaline waters is doing for
suffering humanity. It is the place to
go if it is relief, quick relief, that you
want; but if vour desire is to be in soci
ety's whirl, probably Martinsville would
serve your demands better I have tried
both placerand it pleases mn to recom
mend Mt. Jackson.
It was anagreeable surprise for me
that Charles E. Clift. the genial and ac
commodating manager of Ml. Jackson,
is a Madison county product. He is
from' the Berea section and knows well
many Richmond people. His splendid
wife, who was Miss Mae Yates, is a niece
of County Clerk R. B. Terrill and hails
from the Kingston section. She is a
helpmeet in all the word means and is a
friend to all who enter Mt. Jackson
She and Manager Clift are splendidly
equipped for the head of an institution
of the Mt. Jackson kind, and while they
are untiring in their efforts to help and
please 4 very patient, they are especially
thoughtful and considerate of the Ken
tuckiaus. They have placed me under
lasting obligations and I hope never to
forget their many deeds of kindness.
In looking over the register I And that
many Madison county people have been
treated he'e and I am -told that each and
every one has left here either well or
greatly improved. Following are a few
of the names I saw: Clarence E. Woods,

T. 8. Todd. Shelby Gott, T. G. Gentry.
Dr. Moss Gibson, Emit Lohrisch, Mrs.
Mattie Douglas, J. E. Long, Shelby Bur-
gin, u. ii. Hamilton and others.
I am informed by Manager Clift that
the Indianapolis base ball team will not
be at the Sanitarium this March, as has
been the custom for several years The
management thought it best to give the
room to patients, and so decided, not
withstanding a flattering offer by the
manager of the team to take his play

Indianapolis is a great big town and
seems to be a good business point, but
there is not a great deal to see there.
The capital building, the monument to
the soldiers and sailors,' Kingan & Co.'s
packing houses and the asylum are about
all of the big things I recall. The Capi
tol is a handsome building, somthing
after the architecture of the National
capitol; the monument is said to be the
finest iu the world, although there are
many taller and larger; the packing
house is one of ihe biggest of its kind in
the United Slates, and the asylum, with
its spaciou", well-kept grounds and its
splendid buildings, has about 2,000 in
mates. It is far from a clean city and
was probably never referred to even in
jest as a "spotless town." There are
very few elegant houses and the busi
ness portion is far ahead of the resident
section. It is a hard city to learn, on
account of the many streets running at
angles to the "Circle," which surrounds
the Soldiers' and Sailors' monument.
The increase in population in the past
ten years was over 65.000 and Indianap
olis has over 350 souls less than our own
Louisville. Much building is going on
and the city seems to be in, a highly
prosperous coritiition.

Urow car law either on the trams or
street cars and the sons of Ham have
full sway and seem to enjoy it. To
people who like that sort of mix-up,
presume it is just what they want. It
wouldn't go down in dear old Kentucky,
thou', and for the decency and the laws
which prohibit such "social equality,"
must, if not all of us are duly thankful
I am not in the least prejudiced against
the negro, but do not believe that such
mingling of the races as exists in
Hoosierdom was ever intended by either
God or man.
This portion of Indiana has a regular
network of interurban lines, some fifteen
or more entering Indianapolis. The
State's railroad mileage is also very
great and each road operates a great
many passenger trains. Notwithstand
ing this, almost every train and car is
crowded. The union depot and the trac
tion station are jammed with people
day and night waiting for trains. This
is a traveling people, to say the least. I
might add that it is a hustling one, as
well, men, as well as women, always on
the go. Very few loafers and everybody
in a hurry.
The country around Indianapolis looks
as if it should be a great farming sec
tion and I am told that the land produc
es great crops of corn and fairly good
wheat. A great deal of stock is raised,
while cattle by the hundred are seen on
many of the farms. The Norman and
Clydesdale draft horses have nearly dis
placed the mule in both city and coun
try. A great deal of attention is given
to the breeding and raising of that class
of hone stock. The farms look clean
and most of them bear evidences of pros
perity. Taken as a whole, Indiana is a
good State, but the more I see of it the
better satisfied I am to live in Kentucky.

Cats Exterminated.
War to the death on all cats was de
clared at Berkeley, Gil., by the police
department in 'the interest of public
health. A theory that cats are respon
sible for spreading smallpox caused the
campaign against them.
The order has gone out that if it is
possible to rid a town of cats, Berkeley
shall be the first catless town in the
Extermination begun last Saturday,
and policemen armed with small rifles
shot cats on sight, without regard to
pedigree or ownership.

Madame Piotrowski, with her talent
for guiding students through the realms
of knowledge by the most pleasant
paths, has organized the German class
es of the school into two very delighted
clubs, including the classes of the Nor
mal and High School respectively. These
clubs meet once during each term, the
former in Madame Pjotrowski's class
room, the latter at the homes of the stu
dents of the city. The purpose of the
organization is to acquire a facility in
cooversational German, and their pro
gramme consists accordingly sL German
games, discussions and songs. Professor
Koch giving valuable assistance in di
recting the singing.
The opening meeting of the High
School Club was held on Friday last, at
the home of Prof. Hoikinson, on High
street. Mr. Curtis Bennett and Miss
Ellen Miller have invited them to their
homes for the next two meetings.
Examinations were held on Thursday
and Friday of last week, closing the
work of the second term of this school
year. The third term opened on Tues
day, Jan. 28. An unprecedented num
ber of new students have already arriv
ed and many more are expected.
For many weeks every bit of space in
the dormitories has been engaged, and
the whole equipment of the school is
taxed to the limit in providfng for so
large an attendance. The teaching force
has been increased by the addition of
several new teachers.

The Pinhooker.
Tobacco growers commonly believe
that the speculator, or "Pinhooker,"
can get a better price for tobacco on the
loose leaf market than the growers
themselves obtain, says the Cynthiana
Democrat. This is of course ridiculous.
The buyers do not know In the vast ma
jority of cases who owns the tobacco on
which they bid. They do not see the
tags except in occasional instances, for
they have no interest in knowing the
ownership of the basket. To them own
ership makes no difference whatever.
They want the tobacco and go after it if
it is of the quality their house demands.
The Pinhooker will buy, however, only
the best crops as a rule, and he natural
ly seeks to get them at the lowest figure
possible. If he understands bis busi
ness be knows how to sort the baskets
to the best advantage, and in that has
the best of the average grower. Crops
on adjoining farms will differ widely
but usually each farmer thinks his erop
s as good as bis neighbor's and ought
to bring as much money. The Pinhook
er knows differently, and will buy the
best of any - two if he fcan. The
grower across the road who puts his
crop on the market will believe there is
collusion between the buver and the
Pinkooker when the latter gets the most
money. But the grower has one great
consolation; the Pinkooker will surely
go broke if he stays at the business
long enough
What One Potato 'Will Do.
A lad in the outside of Albany, N. Y ,
and only 12 years of age, has made a
world record. The State Board offered
a prize for the largest yield from one
seed potato. Each contestant was fur
nished one potato of a special and unu
sual variety in his part of the Slate.
Eugene Durand raised and exhibited
6S5 pounds of potatoes, 12 busiels of
contest quality and size, and left at
horn) unweighed about two bushels of
exhibitable ones. So far as known, this
is fully twice the yield ever before
known from one potato.
The potato had 14 eyes. Ech of these
was planted in a hotbed. When the
sprout was about three inches high he
cut it off and placed it in sand, where it
took root. Durand then set it out in a
soil adapted to potatoes. The sprouts
kept on growing and he kept on rooting
them and then transplanting them and
great was the harvest thereof Farm
