Mrs. Cress gave a sketch of Miss Wil lard’s life, and her ancestry which cast nn illumination on the “whys and the wherefores" of her wonderful achieve ments. She came of a long liue of clean parentage—educated, cultured, religi 0Us—an inheritance that makes reform ers who know no defeat.

The Jefferson county senator declared that the posi tion did not justify a $.>,000 salary, which was more than the circuit Judges and chancellors of the state received. Another debate arose over the salary of the rate expert, which also was cut from $3,000 to $3,000. Senator Rone in offering an amendment to reduce the salary to $2,500 said that this amount was suffeient until it could be ascer tained how the commission would work out under the new laws. Senator Wil son of Union county called attention to the fact that the oil and gns industries and pipe lines had been placed under the jurisdiction of the committee, and that an able rate man would be requir ed to handle the new business. The ap propriation for sueciul clerks, attor neys, experts, etc., was cut from $8,000 to $5,000. and the appropriation for equipment, office supplies, etc., from *5,000 to $2.500.—Gazette. -o daily sermon.
