Talk about the high cost of living,
how doe this, from a Washington pa

Housewives who visited the Center
Market this morr-ing uttered cries o
dismaj on discovering that spring Iamb
of the crop of 1913 was retailing at tl
per pound.
This would make a leg of lamb cost
from f6 to fS, and the price is said to be
the highest ever recorded it this time
of the year.

advancing and dealers regard the out
look for any decrease in the immediate
future as not encouraging.
Tes Santa Rosa, the first passenger

between New York and San Francisco
and Seattle ha started on her maiden
trip around the Horn. The opening of
the Panama canal will revolutionize
the American shipping interests, to say

Th Washington Senate ha passed a
bill prohibiting the intermarriage of
w hites and colored races except where
both are citizens of the United Slates.
The bill is said to have been devised to
prohibit Japanese from marrying white
women. According to this there is no
bar placed on the Cauc&ssian and the
JCeero, both being American born. Most
of the States have passed laws probibit
the marriage of w hile and blacks.
Salooss are running wide open at
Lebanon again after a dryness lasting
nearly eight years. Five bar-rooms and
two quart houses secured licenses and
some of them are already doing busi
ness. Tbey will sell lots of booze, of
course, but if they abide by the rules as
laid down they will have to keep their
eyes open or pay a lot of fines. In the
first place the license has been fixed at
(1,000 a year for saloons and 1300 for
quart houses. Those who procure license
will have to give bond and security to
live up to the spirit as well as the letter
of the existing laws. Tbey are to dis
ylay no immodest oi immoral pictures;
allow no chairs, settees or lounges in the
saloons; permit no gambling of any kind;
they shall have no pool or billiard tables;
music, vocal or instrumental, in the
room or building is prohibited; no fe
male of ill repute shall enter the saloon,
with which there shall be no connection
with any other apartment; no person
under 21 years shall be permitted to en

That he hopes to see the deserters
from the standard of the republican
party back in the fold in 1916. was the
declaration of President Taft, who was
the principal speaker at the Lincoln day
dinner at Philadelphia. We believe the
President would really like to see his
party get together but we do not be
lieve that either he or hts children will
see such a thing. The repuolican par

The "money-t-usi" committee, who
followed William D. Rockefeller to his
private apartments on Jekyllslsnd, Ga.,

few questions had been answered when
the aged financier suffered a collapse.

The young Chinaman who died of
acute indigestion in Asbury College at
Kicholasville would probably have been

The Gotham police investigation goes
