Sometimes the Spartan rule caused
indigestion, but when applied two or
three times it made the children
careful not to take more than they
really wanted, and so waste on the
plates was prevented, and habits of
thrift taught to the children, which
as they grew up influenced them in
other things. Waste occurs in the
kitchen as well as at the table, and
to an' even greater extent. I have
one for the teapot. In Russia, where
a great deal of tea is drunk, such a
rule would seem absurd. Some years
ago I was dining with a professor in
Moscow, and tea was served after
dinner. Discussing the use of tea
in England and Russia, I asked my
hostess how much tea she used. She
replied: "I am extravagant in tea.
I have twelve guests, and I used four
teaspoonfuls of tea, but most of my
friends would only have used one."
In order to taste such tea it must
be drunk without milk or sugar,
which woud mask the flavour. Sugar

The thoughtfulness and carefulness
of the Master foresaw the evil that
might ensue if they went away fast
ing, for they might faint by the
way, and so he said to his disciples,
"Give ye them to eat." In orderly
ranks the multitude sat down on the
grass, but all the food the disciples
could find at first was five loaves and
two small fishes. This small pro
vision was given by the Master to
His disciples, and by them distrib

had eaten and was filled. Often one

Frank McMillan Says He Mistook
Thos. G. Goforth for Squirrel.
Covington, Tenn., Sept. 11 Frank
McMillan, aged 17 years, who was
arrested yesterday, charged with the
killing of Thomas Goforth, aged 10
years, Saturday, a week ago to-day,
this morning confessed to Deputy
Sheriff T. L. Black that while hunt
ing in the woods near Gilt Edge last
Saturday morning he mistook young
Goforth for a squirrel, and shot and
killed him. Young Goforth had
climbed up a tree to gather some
wild grapes and McMillan claims he
saw the branches of the tree waving
and thought the lad was a squirrel,
and shot him. He said Goforth
screamed when he was shot, and his
body fell to the ground. McMillan
claims that he was so frightened
when he saw he had shot the boy
that he hurriedly left the scene, but
soon returned and found that Go-
forth was dead, and he was afraid
to tell any one about his connection
with the killing, and hence kept it
a secret. McMillan claims that the
statement that he and young Goforth
had had some trouble about a week
before the latter's death is not true.
McMillan's preliminary trial was
to have taken place before Squires
O. R. Lavelle and W. A. Lemmonds
at Gilt Edge this afternoon, but the
trial was continued until Tuesday,

Bootleggers Get Orders.
Hickman, Ky., Sept. 12. There
was another mass meeting last night
of citizens of Hickman to determine
just how to rid the town and com
munity of bootleggers and other law
breakers, this being the third mass
meeting of the citizens since the
riple killing on Thursday night,
when Judge W. A. Naylor, deputy
sheriff, and Willie Collins were
killed by Claude Johnson, Johnson
in turn being killed by another of
ficer, and since the raid on Friday
on all the bootlegging joints in town.'j
At the meeting last night drastic
resolutions, drawn up by the Rev.
R. M. Walker, pastor of the Metho
dist Church; Judge E. J. Stahr,
County Judge, and H. C. Helm, were
read and adopted, and every effort
will be put forth by the most promi
nent citizens of Hickman and com
munity to carry out the law in this
city from now on.
An arrest was made last night for
bootlegging and two bootleggers
were made to leave town yesterday,
It is feared there will be further
trouble, threats having been made,
it is reported, by bootleggers of West
Hickman against Bub Lankford, who
was deputized by Judge Naylor,
deputy sheriff, to go with him when
he attempted to arrest Claude John
son. Several warrants have been is
sued for different characters in that
vicinity bootleggers and bad characters.
