MHESNEY THE MAN FOR VICTORY IN NOVEMBER Temperance Vote In Country Districts and Mountains Will More Than Make Up For Liquor Men Who May Bolt Elections of Last Few Years Prove This "The liquor candidates and the liquor i v . i . af ai rorgans in iceir desperate enons iu :stem the rapidly increasing strength &t Mr. McChesney, and to prevent, if ; possible, what seems to be his prob . able .nomination as the Democratic 'candidate for Governor in the August primary, have been industriously cir . culating the report that if he is nomi ruated.he can not be elected in No '.vember. They base this statement nupon the idea that the whiskey and ileer Democrats would not vote for "jhim, or for any other dry Democrat, ilf he is nominated. In other words, .they admit that, although the liquor '.Democrats will take a very active part .in the primary against McChesney, tthey will not hesitate, if he is- nomi nated, to bolt his nomination and vote rfor .the Republican ticket. There is i some truth in that threat, for that is ;just what they have been doing for jmany years. Most of them do not seem to he bound, by any sense of hon or or obligation, to support the nomi nee after they have taken part in the -.primary. Admitting to be true their purpose to bolt if Mr. McChesney is nominated, and that is what this talk .-amounts to when they say he could ;not be elected, let us see whether or -not it is to bo feared. The people of Kentucky remember xvery well that in the Senatorial pri-r-snary 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 .the liquor candidate for Governor now, used the same argument; so did the rsame liquor newspapers. What thiB argument amounted to in effect was that, if Beckham was nominated, the 'whiskey and beer Democrats would Vbolt him, while If Stanley should be nominated he would get all of those -votes and alBO the votes of the tem--rperance Democrats, who would be too .honorable and too good Democrats, to .fbolt the party nominee after they had rtaken part in the primary. The result of that primary should be fresh in the memory of Kentucky Democrats. With rail the power and wealth of the dis tilleries, the breweries, and the saloons "back of him, Stanley was defeated by ;a substantial majority. Beckham was nominated and a large majority of the "liquor Democrats did bolt him in the JNovember election. It is necessary only to look at the returns from that ..election to demonstrate it. In all of the cities and liquor centers fReckham ran considerably behind the Avd. JLs Your House a Home? jAnd what is a home? It is, of course, quite different ffrom a house. '"It is a building not made 37ith hands," says the Woman s Home Companion. It belongs to the things which ;--are unseen, rather than to the things which are seen. A house is a product of human lhandicraft; a home is a creation Qi .the heart. &. ihouse is constructed out of tmatter; a home i3 such stuff as dreams are made of. A house is four walls with a ixoof; a home is a complex or memories and associations and affections. A. iiouse is built by gold; a ehome is built by love. A small -and shabby home may be set up linside a spacious and costly &ouse. We have all been guests in .places where we felt there was ..more house than home. in the other hand, a palatial rhome may be erected inside a cottage. A house can be built in a year. 'To build a home is the work of xiany -seasons. A man can have numerous .houses; he can have but one hame. rest of the Democratic ticket. Even in Louisville, which he carried by a large majority, he ran nearly 2,500 votes behind the majority of the Dem ocratic nominee for Congress; in Ken ton county (city of Covington) he re ceived 1,889 votes less than the vote for the Democratic nominee for Con gress; in Campbell county (city of Newport) he received 1,632 less; ia Fayette county (city of Lexington) which he should have carried by 1,200, he carried by only 197; and so it was in every city where there was a liquor vote. Even in Henderson county, Mr. Stanley's home. Governor Beckham ran about 200 or 250 votes behind the ticket, even though Stanley made a speech there before the election, os tensibly for the ticket, .but it happen ed that in the five or six places where he did speak in that campaign, Beck ham, the nominee, lost votes, for Stan ley's speeches were not intended to help him. Notwithstanding all of this defection and bolting, Governor Beck ham won over his Republican op ponent, Governor Willson, by 32,000 majority, 'the largest majority given to any Democratic candidate In 25 or 30 years. So the threat of Mr. Stanley and his whisky and beer supporters proved to be futile and empty. If is the same old trick they are trying to work again, on the. Democrats this year. But it will fool only the unthinking or the ignorant. Mr. Mc Chesney is undoubtedly the strongest candidate the Democrats can nomi nate for Governor. He will be elected beyond doubt; he may lose many very wet Democrats in the liquor centers, just as Beckham did last year, but he will more than make it up In the ooun try districts and in the mountains. He is receiving the 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 same thing, and get into a race with the Republican ticket to see which can bid the highest for the whiskey and beer votes of the 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 beat the wet Republican candidate is with Mr. Mc Chesney as the Democratic candidate. He will be nominated and elected. Wise or Otherwise. A good cook is the best house hold jewel. Sometimes half the truth is worse than none. Liquor doesn't drown troubles; it floats them. A man loses his appetite if forced to eat his words. It keeps some people busy try ing to look innocent. Most men who say they do the best they can don't. A lazy man wants to paddle his own canoe by proxy. People go to extremes in try ing to make both ends meet. There are few things more un certain than life's certainties. One can often dodge a coming evejit by observing its shadow. A diplomat seemingly believes one without actually doing it. Some men outlive their useful ness if they live to be a day over 22. Every time a man discovers that a woman has fooled him his vanity gets a shock. m President Wilson arrived in Washington last week and a Cabinet meeting was held to consider a reply to Germany. Chas.

The first woman to own a piece of land in Kentucky was Susan nah Boone, wife of Daniel Boone who very early obtained a patent for a tract in Madison county. The first marriage in Ken tucky was that of Samuel Hen derson to Elizabeth Calloway, Aug. 7, 1776. Their daughter, Fannie, born in 1777, was the first white child in the State born of parents in the state. The first plow manufactured was made by William Pogue at Harrodsburg in 1770. He also made his first loom, while his wife brought the first spinning wheel to the State and wove from the lint of nettles, the first piece of linen manufactured, and from buffalo wool the first piece of linsey. The first grist mill in the state run by water was, perhaps, the one built by Capt. John McMur try, near Shakertown, in Mercer county in 1792. The first apple seeds were planted in Mercer county by members of the McAfee com pany in 1775, Dr. Walter and S'i: X The Perfect Laxative For Elderly People Ase has Its attractions no less than youth in a more serene and quieter life.

Most elderly people are troubled In this way, with accompanying symptoms of belching, drowsiness after eating, headaches and general lassitude. Fre quently there is difficulty of digesting even light food. Much mental trouble ensues, as it is hard to find a suitable remedy. First of all the advice may be siven that elderly people should not use salts, cathartic pills or powders, waters or any of the more violent purgatives.

"In the summer of 1883 I had a very severe attack of cholera morbus. Two physicians worked overme from 4 a. m. to p. m. without giving me any re lief and then told me they did not ex pect me to live; that I had best tele graph for my family. Instead of do ing so, I gave the hotel porter fifty cents and told him to buy me a bottle of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Eemedy, and take no sub stitute. I took a double doee accord ing to the directions and went to sleep after the second dose.

A lady entered a railroad coach in which all the seats were filled with the exception of two of which one man had taken poss ession. The lady stopped near the man thinking that he would gallantly turn one of the seats for her and thus permit her to sit down. Perhaps there was a look of annoyance on her face since the man did not show a disposition to show her any cour tesy for he said, "Why are you looking at me so angrily, do you wish to eat me up?" The lady answered; 'No! I do not like pork." Diarrhoea Quickly Cured. , "About two years ago I had a se vere attack of aiarrnoea wmen lasted for over a week," writes W. C.

It requires a lot of magnetism to get things coming our way. There are times when the des cent of man seems to consist of falling in love. Many a woman who thinks her face is her fortune doesn't have to carry any burglary insurance? Lots of girls put on airs, even the air of innocence. Some men are never naturarV They are either kicking or being kicked. Some men are cranks and some are self-starters. Tell a woman that consistency is a jewel and she will tell you jewelry is vulgar. The one thing the average girl carl't understand about every man is why he doesn't fall in love with her. Strangely enough, there is no similarity between our mansions in the sky and our castles in the air.
