Powers Opponent
Has Lost His Head
Mr. H. U. Seavy, tlio Bull
Moose or Progressive candidate
for congress, need this language
in a speech at Williamsburg the
other day: "
"Caleb Powors has recently
emercrod from Drison and is now
urging the voters of the district
to sbaro with him the odium of
the past. Electing a man to Con
gress does not make a man guilt
less of a foul crime."
Shame on you, II. II. Seavy,
for uttering and re iterating tho
Goebolite lies of the past. If
you hope to capture 'Qoebelito
votes by reiterating Goobolitn
lies you will fall far short of the
mark. Caleb Powers' Democrat
ic opponent, Ben V. Smith,
years ago took the position that
Powers was a guilty assassin and
that tho Kepublican party was a
well-wisher to the dastardly
deed and that it too, along witli
Caleb Powers, ought to be doom
ed ond damned.
Mr. Seavy, youare too recent a
convert to tliat doctrine to get
very many Democratic votes.
You need not expect them. It is
true that you have never been
for Powers. You said to Mat
thew Mitchell, a traveling sales
man who Uvea at Barbourvillc,
Ky., that you had always been
aguinst Powers and that you
never was for him. Of course
that ought to help you some with
the Qoebelite vote, but eveiy
true Republican in the district
might to and will vote against
You charge that Culeb Powers
is asking the voters of the dis
trict to share with him the od
ium of the past; that he recently
emerged from jail. Was it any
disgrace for our Ilevolutionaiy
ancestors, fighting for Independ
ence, to be overpowered by su
perior numbers and thrown in
jail? Was it any disgrace for the
Federal veterans in the late war
to be incarcerated in Anderson
ville and Sibley prison? Is there
any odium attached to their
names because in lighting to save
the Union they were overpower
ed and imprisoned by men fight
ing to destroy it?
Caleb Powers fought in as
holy a war and as noble a cause
as any of the ancestors of tho
past. The Goebolites of the
State tried and did rob us of our
liberty and deprived us of our
sacred and inborn rights to cast
our votes for the candidates of
our choice and have their vote
counted as cast. In the election
of '09 the Goebelites threw out
and refused to count the entire
vote of the city of Louisville and
Jefferson county and the entire
Republican vote of tho county of
''I 'Johnson and tho county of Mar-
"tin. Galub Powers fought the
robbery with all the strength oi
his young manhood and with all
. the" vigor of his impetuous -o il.
Later when some crank had lul
led William Goobel and the Goo
belitea of the St a to sought to de
stroy the Republican party in the
Commonwealth becaiiho of thut
crime, Caleb Powers endured
eight long years ot infamous in
carceration and fuced death
itself without a tremor to the
end that the Republican party
that had honored him should not
be destroyed, and stigmatized as
' a party of assassination.
Mr. Seavy, is thoro any odium
in that? Is thcre-any disgrucv
in thut? The Republican puit
of' this district stood back of
PoVers like a stone wall. in tint
1 awful fight. Ih there any odiu 1.
hU disgrace attaching to thein
fight? Mr. Seavy, you talk like
a Goebolite. You conduct your
self like a mad man. Tho Re
publicans of this district will
bury yon undor mountains of
ballots. You cannot abuse
Caleb Powers for tho fight ho
made and slander us for stand
ing by him in that struggle and
thou expect our support. Who
arc you, and whero have you
boon, and what havo you boon
doing that the Republicans of
this district should take you up
and send you to Congress and de
feat and repudiate nno of our
own mountain boys who has been
tried in tho fiery furnace and
found to be 21 carats fine? You
are not a uativo mountain man.
You are foreign to our soil. You
have never helped us fight any
of tho battles of the past. You
confess that you came to Ken
tucky 20 years ago, and coAfess
further that you never even at
tended a political meeting in all
that time until you became a
candidate. You are posing as
the laboring man's friend and as
the people's candidate and yet
for the last 20 years you have
been connected with the L. A: N.
Railroad Company, one of 'the
huge corporations of the laud,
while Caleb Powers for the last 20
years has been battling for the
people's rights. The people will
not forget those things on Nov
ember o. Caleb Powers will car
ry 11 out of the 15 counties in
this district over both Seavy and
Smith. Gentlemen, you have
tried to jointly make this race
against and defeat Caleb Pow
ers. You had aR well got ready
to jointly take a trip up Salt
River. Your baby is named.
Just call Ii i 111 him Dennis. Atlvt.

Taft Helped the
Little Business
WASHINGTON, Oct. l.-Just
why the business rann nnd wage
earner should vote to support the
Taft administration will be shown
by the President in a statement he
has written for the, October issue of
American Industries. Mr. Taft
says in part:-
"I have every confidence that I
will receive the support of the great
army of business men in this county
and of that large porton of-labor
which is employed by these compar
atively smaller concerns and indus
"My policy has been perfectly
consistent and undevinting. I have
maintained, and the Supreme Court
tins upheld my contention, that
combinations effected .with the pur
pose of acquiring n monoply were
illegal. And when the Department
of Justice has nrquircd evidence of
such an intent I have instructed it
to bring suit and if the evidence
warranted to institute criminal
"The aggregate capital of the
comparatively smaller business men
producers nnd manufactures will
far exceed that of the so-called
trusts, or those who may be tempt
ed to form trusts, and the employ
ees of the former will far exceed
those of the latter. And these
smaller business men nnd their em
ployees represent the hone nnd sin
ew of the industry of the United
States To them I look for support
in the coming election, because I
have served them faithfully and
have safe-guarded their interests
against those who, actuated solely
by selfishness, would have injured
The Army Worm
It is not generally known that
there are two army worms in Ken
tucky, looking somewhat alike in
the caterpillar or worm stage and
doing similar mischief, the one dur
ing the Spring, the other during the
fall months.
In well grown examples of the
Fall Army worm the head is largely
black, with a sharply defined white
inverted Y-shaped mark on the
front. Young examples of thi
worm are more like those of the
common army worm, the sides, of
the head being netted, but the in
verted white Y is evident and to
gether with the broadness and
sharpness of a black stripe along
the lower part of each side will
serve for their recognition. A fea
ture of the habits of thi lall army
worm is also characteristic. Unlike
the common army worm it does
not travel persistency in some one
direction, but spreads outward in
all directions from the spot on
which the eces are placed. The
adult moth placing these eggs mens
ures only one nnd a quarter inch
(1.2o inch) expanse of wings, ns
against one and three quarters
(1.75 inch) for the spring army
worm moth. Its colors are pnle
brown, the front wings with nn
obscure whitish dash on the middle
and another at the tip. The hind
wings are white, with a fine irides
cence and a narrow dusky edging.
A variasiott of the moth, quite com
mon in Kentucky, has nearly uni
form dusky brown Iron wings.
The Fall Army Worm has done
mischief this season in Madison,
Woodford, llullitt, Carrol and
doubtless other counties in the
State, Hungarian millet, rye, nnd
alfalfa have mincred most, in some
cases several ncre being largely
eaten up by the woruiH iu u lew
duys. The first brood npi eared
about August 0 nd by the 21st ,
bnd gone into the soil for pupation, ,
emerging ns moths about eight days
later. September 18 worms repre
senting n second brood were re
ceived Irom Woodford County,
where they were' destroying alfalfa.
September 20 worms of the jarae
brood were received from both Car
roll and Madison Counties, where
they were working on rye nnd nlfal
'fa. These worms are now three
fourths grown and will in a few
days go into the soil for a period,
to emerge later as adult moths.
From what is known of the history
of the insect, it is evident that n
third brood will appear this fall, (in
This insect is believed to come
from the South during the summer,
and to be destroyed- by the severe
northern winters. The suddenness
of its appearance in large numbers
nnd the rnpidty' with which it de
stroyed fields of alfalfa and rye in
which it became established, found
farmers completely unprepared to
deal with it. Yet it is not entirely
beyond control by those who know
its habits. Where one of the early
broods has matured and gone into
the soil for pupation it is almost
completely at tne mercy of the farm
er it he can plow up the land nt
once and thus break up the cells in
which the helpless insect lies and
expose it to birds, poultry and other
enemies Whether it is advisable or
not, thus to dispose of a planting of
rye or alfalla must be left to the
judgement of the farmer himseh.
Undoubtedly there are cases where
this procedure is on all accounts ad
visable. In any case poultry ond birds, and
in some cases hogs, should be al
lowed the freedom of the infested
fields. In spite of our laws we are
too much given to using our shot
guns on blackbirds and crows when
they appear on land. Both birds
are especially adopted from habit to
deal with the fall army worm.
Spraying field crops is not a com
mon practice in Kentucky. Out
breaks of army worms always finds
people unprepared to cope with the
pests by the use of insecticides. To
get satisfactory results one must go
after the worms at once. No doubt
t would be possible to dose a few
acres of alfalla or rye with arsenate
of lead (three pounds in fifty gal
lons of water) so as to destroy the
worms. Of course poultry and
stock would have to he kept from
the fiield lor a time afterward.
One. or at most two. barrels of
the mixture should dose an acie,
depending upon the ranknes of the
The life-history of the insect is not
complrtcly known and is being
studied at the Station. Farmers
whose crops are btiug injured, or
have been injured by earlier broods,
will confer a favor by writing of
their experience to Professor H.
Garmnn, care Kentucky Agricultur

can be forwarded in small tin boxes
with close-fitting covers, containing
enough allalfa or other food to last
a day or two.
