A newspaper correspondent from San Franscisco writes that when the Colonel aro?c to address the gathering more than ",0,000 persons joined in the cheers. Wo arc glad that the multitude is again paying some civility to our ox-president. For the last two or three years he has been given every thins: except respect and kindlv notice. The people and the newspapers are again turning their attention to this vigorous national character and looking for striking points made in his speech es and short addresses to the public. National popularity is vasuiliit ing. William Jennings Bryan has been dropped completely, but like Roosevelt the public's eyes and ears may turn to him again. All over our country the citizens have been .saying: "If Roo.-e-volt were president now, tho United States would be at war." For this reason they arc curious to hear every word he utters. The Colonel has a heart ready to light, and while no one wants to go to war with him, the people cacerly listen to all ho says on war and preparing for war. Col. Roosevelt believes that there should be universal military t-crvicc for our young men. In Switzerland after the boys are graduated from the public schools they servo with tho army four or six months and then for eight or ten days every year for the next ten years. If our young men were kept in tho public schools longer with military training, they, no doubt, would be better equipped for citi zenship, besides attaining clliciency for military service. The Colonel is saying many good facts and tho people arc listening to him again. PENSIONS" FO R EMPLOYEES. The Winchester Repeating Arms Company have announced a pension plun under which old employees can bo retired. The plan provides for placing on the pension list any male employee who is sixty years old and has worked for the company twenty-live yean; Tho minimum pension is to be $20 a month. The large corporations of tho United States are constantly perfecting plans by which they show tho highest appreciation of their fuithful employees. The larger companies expect perfection in every employee and after a man reaches sixty years, it seems as though his best service is not good enough for the busines. A quarter of a century of faithful- A'K . 1 m ' . 1 - It... .. ness ana cmciency proviues mo puiiMiiu wuku id ughci iuuu uciuS cast aside without a meat and bread allowance.

MtCHESNEYTHE MAH FOB Temperance Vote In Country Districts and Mountains Will Mora Than Make Up For Liquor Men Who Way Bolt Elections of Last Few Years Prove This The liquor candidates nnd tho liquor organs In tholr desperate onoris 10 stom the rapidly increasing strength of Mr. McChosncy, nnd to prevent, If possible, what seems to be his prob able nomination as the Democratic candidate for Governor In the August primary, havo been Industriously cir culating the report tlinf. If ho Is nomi nated lie can not bo elected In No vember. They baso this statement upon the Idea that tho whiskey and beer Democrats would not vote ror him. or for any other dry Democrat, If he Is nominated. In other words, they admit that, although the liquor Democrats will take a very active part in the primary against McChesney, they will not hesitate, If ho Is nomi nated, to bolt his nomination and vote for the Republican ticket. There Is some truth In that threat, for that is Just what they have been doing for many years. Most or them do not seem to be bound, by any sonco of hon or or obligation, to support the nomi nee after they have taken, part In the primary. Admitting to bo truo their purpose to bolt If Mr. McChesney Is nominated, and that Is what this (alk amounts to when tliey say he coum not be elected, let us see whether or not It Is to bo feared. The tconle of Kentucky remember very well that in tho Senatorial pri mary last year, the same kind of talk and threats were used against Govern or Beckham. Mr. Stanley, the liquor candidate for the Senate then, as he Is tho liquor candidate for Governor now, used the same argument; so did tho same liquor newspapers, w hat this argument amounted to In effect was that, It Beckham was nominated, tho whiskey and beer Democrats would bolt him, while if Stanley should be nominated he would get all of those votes and also tho votes of tho tem perance Democrats, who would be too honorable and too good Democrats, to bolt tho party nominee after they had taken part In tho primary. The result of that primary should be fresh In the memory of Kentucky Democrats. With all the power and wealth of tho dis tilleries, the breweries, and the saloons back of him, Stanley was defeated by a substantial majority. Beckham was nominated and a large majority or the liquor Democrats did bolt him in the November election. It is necessary only to look at the returns from that ilertlon to demonstrate It. In all of the cities and liquor centers B.icHiani ran considerably behind the OF NEWS HAPPENINGS Many Visitors in Town-Horsley 1 ... . ... ... and Alexander Wedding. FRIENDS WIN PIANO. Pete Buttler shipped an extra nice lot of hogs and cattle to Louisville last week Mrs. J. A. Sandbach and children, who have been visiting in Kansas City and other places, have returned home. Some of the members of the Baptist church met last Wednesday and cleaned oil the church yard, removed the fence and did quite a good deal of much needed improvements, which adds greatly to the looks of the church and vard. The ladies took up the carpets, painted the floor, cleaned win dows, etc. Mrs. Sue Board, of Louisville, was the guest of Miss Nannie Board part of last week. Horn to the wife of Mr. Ben Harper, July 22. twin girls, Ina and Emma Harper. Mrs. Ann Bruce, of Hardlnsburg, who has been suffering with cataract of the eye, was accompanied to Louis ville by Dr. E. C. Harned last week, where she has gone for treatment. Miss Ida Dowell has returned from Cincinnati and reports a very pleas ant trip. She was one of the Drury party. Miss Luna Horsley and Mr. Ray mond Alexander were married July 22. Mr. and Mrs. Paul Compton, of Hardlnsburg, and Mr. and Mrs. I. B Richardson, accompanied by their guests, the Misses Compton, of Allen Texas, started Sunday afternoon on motor trip through the upper part of the State. They will visit Louisville Frankfort, Lexington and other points before returning. They expect to be gone about a week. Rev. Leslie Deliart tilled his regular appointment at the Baptist church Sat urday and Suuday. Mr. Joel Pile's friends will be glad to hear of his recent success in win nine another piano. This makes his third one. Mr. Roscoe Carman, of the Locust Hill neighborhood, recently hurt his band in some way, but paid little at tention to It as it was only a slight hurt, but it has developed into a seri ous matter and the doctors fear blood poison or possibly the loss of the hand. Miss Cora Wood, of Louisville, who has been visiting her sister, Mrs. Mat- tie Dowell, returned home Saturday. Mrs. Ernest Ilosklnson and Mrs VICTORY IH NOVEMBER rest of the Democratic tlckot. Even In Louisville, which ho carried by a. largo majority, he ran nearly 2,500 votes behind the majority of the Dem ocratic nominee for Congress; In Ken ton county (city or Covington) ho re ceived 1.8S0 votes less than the voto for tho Democratic nominee for Con gress; in Campbell county (city of Newport) ho received 1,632 less; In Fayette county (city of Leslng.an) which ho should have carried by 1,200, he carried by only 197; and so It was In every city whore there was a liqror vote. Kven In Henderson county, Mr. Stanley's home, Governor Beckham ran about 200 or 2S0 votes behind the ticket, even though Stanley made a speech there before the election, os tensibly for the ticket, but It happen ed tha' In the five or six places whero he did speak In that campaign, Beck ham, the nominee, lost votes, for Stan- 1 ley s speeches were not Intended to I help him. Notwithstanding all of this (defection and bolting, Governor Beck , ham won over his Republican op Iponent, Governor Wlllson, by 32,000 i majority, the largest majority given to any Democratic candidate In 25 or CO years. So the threat of Mr. Stanloy ' and his whisky and beer supporters proved to be futile and empty. It Is tho samo old trick they aro trying to work ngaln on tho Democrats this year. But It will fool only tho unthinking or tho ignorant. Mr. Mc Chesney is undoubtedly the strongest candidate tho Democrats can nomi nate for Governor. Ho will bo elected beyond doubt; he may loso many very wet Democrats in tho liquor conters, Just as Beckham did last year, but ho will more than make It up In tho coun try districts and In the'mountalns. Ho Is receiving tho assurances of thou sands of temperance Republicans and Independents that they will support him, If he Is nominated over Mr. Mor row, who Is well known as a wet man. It is no use for Mr. Stanley to argue that, because the Republicans will nominate a wet candidate for Gover nor on a wet platform, the Democrats should do the samo thing, and get Into a race with tho Republican ticket to see which can bid the highest for tho whiskey and beer votes of tho state. The people of Kentucky are not going to elect as Governor of the state a liquor trust man, and Mr. Stanley might as well stand aside. The people know that their chance to bet the wet Republican candidate Is with Mr. Mc Chesney as the Democratic candidate. He will be nominated and electnd.

The Alarm Clock Cure. A writer in the Farm nnd Fireside declares that the surest cure for broody hens is an alarm clock. He says: "Some years ago I was endeavoring' to break up a sitting hen, but my ef forts were In vain. Old Yaller con tinued to sit. Finally I took a small alarm clock and set it so It would go off In a few minutes. I placed It in one corner of her nest and watched. It went olT. And so did Old Ynllcr. She left the nest und stood dazed for one horrified instant, nnd then, wltltono shrill squawk, she ran out of the hen house mid flew over tho park fence and began to hunt for bugs In the grass. "She not only stopped sitting, but she stopiwd clucking, and in a short tlmo began to lay. I have since tried this method on more than 100 broody hens with complete success." Ha Saw a Great Light. Wrecks on the coast of Cornwall, England, were once u source of reve nue to the natives. The Cornish folk were great smugglers too. The Rev. R. S. Hawker had In his service as man of all work old Tristram Pentlre, tho last of the smugglers. One day he made to the vlear this notable confes sion: "Well, sir. I do think, when I come to look buck and to consider what lives we used to live drunk all night and Idle nbed nil day, cursing, swearing, lighting, gambling, lyiug and always prepared to shoot the guuger I do really believe, sir, we surely was in sin!"
