The Same Old Huad.
From Shelbyvllle comes Inquiry
from one who has been studying for
over a year as to how and how much
the Underwood bill, as it is current
ly known, has benefited the people of
this country, the farmers more particularly.
It is a singular thing that there
are very few political convictions so
strongly held, even by many of those
friendly for one reason or another
to a Democratic administration, as
that, under Democratic administra
tions, prosperity can not exist. It
is still more singular that the con
viction Is supported by historical ex
perience and that periods of severe
depression, of unhealthy uncertain
ty, and, finally, of social and econ
omic unrest, have synchronized with
the periods succeeding Democratic
national victories. A violent partis
an might go the length of asserting
that no clearer case of cause and ef
fect need be looked for. Wo do not
go that length. We are content to
mark the coincidence, allowing, at
the same time, that contributory cir
cumstances may be noted, as, for
example, just now, the European
war. What more natural than to
cherish the corresponding faith that.
If to put the Democrats In power Is
to invite hard times, to turn them
out is to insure good times? And
that Idea is strongly held, too.
President Wilson, above all things
a student of history, has been con
scious of this mental attitude from
the start. He has never ceased to
insist and to drive home that much
of the depression was psychological;
that what the country was suffering
from was a state of mind; and that
he. the President and In those days
he was pretty much the Administra
tion, too wanted nothing but fair
play, was averse to harassing busi
ness, and thought a rest would be
for the good of all.
And thereupon has followed much
clapping of hands;
Democratic leaders for a long time
were amiablo enthusiasts contemptu
ous of experience and unused to the
school ot hard knocks. Most people
liked them; many thought them hon
est; and a few trusted them. The
Istration of the day has to take its
chance of the knocks and boosts.
Can not our friend In Shelbyvllle
now answer his own question? Is
he not. like so many others, paying
for the incapacity of a party that has
forgotten what road Is paved with
good Intentions? Louisville Herald.
All persons having claims against
the estate of Preston Moseley, de
ceased, will present them to me prop
erly proven on, or before April 1st,

either by note or account will please
settle same at once and save cost.

A Refining Influence.
Among the many movements ot
our time there is none of which the
value is less appreciated than that
ot animal protection. Whoever has
watched animals closely and impar
tially must be convinced that (hey
stand In a much nearer spiritual
relation to us than the majority ot
people suspect. Not only on account
of the animals themselves Is their
protection urgently necessary, but
llso as a means to raise the whole
human moral outlook and the con
duct of life.
It Is extremely foolish to neglect
their protection on the ground that
the welfare of men is more necessary
than that of animals.
The care of animals Is not at all
antagonistic to the care ot men, but
Is, on the contrary, the noblest way
of helping mankind; It saves men
from sinking into brutality.
We at ouce open to men a source
ot the highest enjoyment when we
awaken In them an understanding of
the soul-life in animals.
He who can hear the song of a
bird unmoved nnd without rapture,
and who cannot discover lu it the
wealth of Love which constrains tho
little songster to pour forth his mel
ody; he who does not delight In the '
boisterous Jubilation, with which the
dog greets his human friends, In the
faithful eyes of animals so full of '
expression, in the beauty and Interest ,
of their ways and actions, he who
does not love to watch the free un
folding of their undeveloped natures
to him aro wanting a joyous and
a refining moral Influence. Such a j
person is indeed incapable of a right
perception of natural feeling. Zur-'
