QOV.WILLSOH AT HOPKINSVILLE Will Speak lo the People of Christian County Next Monday Afternoon. Hon. Augustus E. Willson, Governor of Kentucky,will speak at Hopkiusvillo next Monday af ternoon at one o'clock aud this will be the gala day of the entire campaign in Christian county. It will be remembered that he openly threw down the gauntlet to rioting and lawlessness in a speech he made at Hopkinsville during his campaign in the race for Governor. Since the elec tion he has religiously kept his promise then made to exert every power at his command to put down lawlessness. After all that has been done by tho niulit iiridere since that time and all lhat has been done by our stren uous Governor in the prevention and suppression of ,their activi ties, the meeting cm Monday and Governor's speech will doubtless be written down as notable.

It's going some when a man of thrco months' ncqualntnnco bents tho time of a lifelong sweetheart. Not every man could do It but then not ovory mnn Is Matt O'Brien. It was all over with Matt tho mo ment that he saw her passing, holding on tho arm of that little pasteboard man she was engaged to. Sho was pretty pretty as you cvor find them and she throw one glnnce at Matt out of hor big, you-cnn't-forgetmo eyes that turned hhn white ns a shoot. For n moment ho gazed nftcr tho couple as If ho was dazed, then he grabbed ono of tho boys hard by the urni. "For tho love of heaven!" Matt cried, "who's the girl?" The hoys laughed. "Her?" Tat Burden asked. "Don't you know her? Sho's Nick Wadson's daughter, Nolllo. That fellow she's walking with has been her steady since she was knee-high to a grass hopper." Matt gritted his tcolh a little, hitched up his coat, and said: "There goes my future wife!" Of course, starting out with that statement. Matt got a rough lot of Joshing from tho boys. But ha stuck tolt.andthoselhatknowsay ho toldtfio girl what he Intended to do the third time ho called on her. However that Is, he was calling her by her first name the second day after the Intro duction, and,' was feeling sorry for tho pasteboard man by the end of the week. By the end of the third week Matt was trying to decide which of the boys to have for ushers. Somehow, though, he didn't get along so well in tho fourth week. She was just as friendly with him as ever, but when he'd take her lily white i hand in his and turn on tho mush taU. she'd only laugh. Matt began to have a worried look, whllo the pasteboard man who had been rath er uncomfortable while Matt was in the ascendancy begau to bulge a bit about the head. The boys, naturally, all took a deep Interest In the progress of affairs. "I can't understand it," said Matt, sadly. "I thought I had her won In a walkaway, but now It's different. I tell her that I'm going to marry her, but she laughs. She seems to think It's a Joke." All of the boys sympathized deeply and offered all kinds of advice. Some thought it would be best for Matt to take a correspondence course of courtshln te see if he had overlooked any Important points, while others thought the absent treatment to make the heart grow fonder might bo suc cessful. At any rate it went on that way un til toward the end of three months. The pasteboard man seemed to have a little the best of the argument Matt was getting desperate. He had been at a standstill for two months. Finally, one day, he met tho girl and her fellow coming down the street to gether. Matt, with a look of chancing everything on a single throw, stopped them. "I've had enough of this dilly-dallying business!" he cried. "Which is it going to be, me or him? I'm asking you to marry me, Nellie; what are you going to do about it?" "Why, marry you. of course," said the girl, and wjth her face as red as a peony she left the pasteboard man and came over and stood by Matt. "Why, why!" cried Matt, hardly be lieving his ears. "Do you really mean it?" "Surely," said the girl. "You could have had me seven weeks ago; but do you renlize that this Is the very first time you have really asked me to marry you?" It's going some to beat the time of a lifelong sweetheart In three months, hut It's going a lot more to beat his time in throe weeks and not know what you've done! Chlcngo Journal. Another False Alarm. In the early hours of the evening she stood on the dark corner. "Save me!" sho cried. "Savo me!'' Twenty determined young men dashed to her assistance.

"Be calm, gentlemen," she implored. "There is no cause for excitement.'' The gallant knlghtB were abashed. "No cause for cltemont?"
