Early fairs are now letting their conreealons, and the secretaries report that concessionaries are fearful of the state license and we will not contract until they are assured they will not have to pay for the privilege for four or Ave days. Heretofore the fair has paid one blanket license for all its amusements and stands. Some of the secretaries declare that If individual licenses are required they wilt not bs able to hold fairs at all.

Tbe present plan of paying them has been found unsatis factory at the very outset. Two hun dred and eighty-four pensions, aggre gating about $22,000, fell due February 5. but they have not been paid yefc nor, m I'-wTwailto 'know wa,w.;thoV win do pam.

These signatures must be se cured not more than ninety dot less than thirty days before the primary.

That It Is tho Intention of the eonsas bureau at Waahlngton to aak tho states of tho union to emulate the pub lic health work don by the local reg istrars of Vital statistics of Kentucky Is evidenced by tho following letter: "Department of Commerce and Ia- bor, Division of Yltal Statistics, Bu reau of tbo Census, Washington, Peb. IS. 113. Dr. W. U Helser, Bute Reg istrar of Vital Statistics, Rowling Green, Ky. Dear Doctor: Through newspaper reports, tho bulletins of tbo state boards of health and personal conferences, 1 hare learned of the kind of work tho local registrars of Kentucky are doing.

"It is my purpose to call the atten tion of tbe local registrars of the other twenty-one of the United States under this registration law to the work done by the registrars of Kentucky, that the greatest good may be secured from Its operation.

"I also aaked tbe committee to In crease tbe limit of cost for sites to Palntsville and Pikeville from $5,000 to $7,600 each," said Senator Bradley. The citizens of Pikeville have agreed to provide $2,!i0O themselves if they can get a alte appropriation of $7,r00, so the new building will stand on a $10,000 lot Tbe committee has al ready approved a $55,000 appropriation for Lancaster, and I believe it will In clude the $7,500 terms for Pikeville and Palntsville and $5,000 for a Bar bourville site In tbe senate bill." If all the amendments of the Ken tucky senators are approved, and this Is the usual course in tbe senate, tbe Kentucky share In the senate measure will be $523,000.

JAMES M. CRAY. D. O . Dm W M4v Bb htinn. TKXT "There they made HJra a aup per.'Wohn XII. 1 It Is tha last week of Jesus' early life, and he Is spending tbe days In Jerusalem and the nlj.hu In Bethany the home of La ia run and his sisters, Martha and Mary. "There they made him a sup per." An exquisite, touch o f Christ's humanity! Is not this what we would have done to such a friend? But think of the human kindliness and simplicity of thw Redeemer here displayed! It recall" tho marriage In Cana at which he waa a guest. That was at tbe beginning of hla ministry and this at its close. How better could he have demonstrat ed that he came Into the world not to disturb its social arrangements or mar Its domestic joys, but to elevate them to a higher plane? Blessed be God. we may hare Jesus at our feasts and festivals as well as at other times, and what heart, loving Jesus, would attend a feast or festival where bo could not be a guest? But there is a practical question here of another kind. When we re remember that Jesus knew he was to die within a week, and endure before hand unprecedented contumely, and desertion by his dearest friends, and then look upon him at this friendly- board, receiving happiness from oth ers, and dispensing happiness to them, must we not regard It as a sublime) example of that confidence In God which knoweth tbat he doeth all things) well? Death, sorrow, pain, de sertion are experiences continually present Some of us attempt to throw off the thought of tbem with tbe sto ic's plea, "What can't be cured must be endured." Others seek to drown It In the hilarity and dissipation of tho world. But how different that which Jeaus knew, and which they know who have received him, and to whom he has given power to become the sons of God? Who would not be Christian, a real Christian, It It were onrr for the sake of this lexaey of peace The Devoted Mary and the Avaricious Judaa. The central feature of this supper 1 the anointing of Jesus by the de voted Mary. The action was not un common In eastern lands, where the heat Is great and tbe feet exposed to It by sandals suffer from dryness and scorching. ' The motive of Mary was her love for Jesusu. Love, not only for what she had learned from him. but for what he had done for her brother Lasarus, whom he raised from the dead. All of which come out the stronger In contrast with the fanati cism and avarice of Judas, "Why was not this ointment sold for three hun dren pense, and given to the poor?" A specimen this of the way worldly people depreciate actions done for tbe love of God only, and especially giv ing money for Christ's causa. Judaa aald this, not because "he cared for the poor," John says, "but because be was a thief and had the bag and bare what waa put therein." He was think ing of himself and not tho poor. The truest friends of the poor, the people who do most for them, aro those who do moat for Christ. "It la," aayr Bishop Ryle, "the successors of Mary of Bethany, and not of Judaa Iscariot who really care for the poor," As another says, even It Judas had said this from tbe heart It would have been wrong. It does not follow that the poor will not be benefited, because the rich live according to their means. Social Dlatinctlona to Remain. ' But how significant that remark et Jesus', "the poor always ye have with you." How clearly It teaches that distinctions of class and rank will never cease In the present age. It was never Intended tbat society should become a macadamised road where all are on a level. The existence of pauperism alone does not prove that state are IJl-governed, or churches are not doing their duty. This separa tion between rich and poor which Je sus made was opposed to the spirit of Christ, for in tbe true veneration of hla name consists the most effectual caring for tbe poor. It Is Important to ktep this n mind In this humanita rian age whan tbe goapel of good t'orke (so called) Is so persistently thrust Into tbe foreground la opposi tion to the gospel of faith. Poverty la forever at our heels, hut Christ In the meanwhile may be vanishing away. How significant, "Me y have not alwaya." Oh. let us take It to heart! Him we have po longer when the wing of death suddenly over shadow oa; or whoa our sense depart under the Influence of disease, and the message of salvation no longer pene trate through the crowd of unbridled Imaglnatloas. We have htm ao longer whea God give us up to strong delu sions, aad permit them to take their permanent abode la our at In da, be cause we have hardened ourselves against his call to repentance. flllSK K$f' I ) i I .
