Notary Publi The Bulletin is on tale at the fol lowing placet: Coleman's, 214 Eighth Street. Halliday House News Stand. Blue Front Restaurant. Because five new " cases of small pox appeared In Pa.lucah the other day which they allege came from Cairo in tplt of the quarautine therefore the quarantine must" be continued is the retiort from the Kentucky town. In other words, be cause the quarantine has proven to be useless therefore It Is a good thing: Funny people, thoBe Padueah doctors. "'- , Yesterday's Bulletin gave tho har rowing sNiry of a theatre fire In Mex ico City in which thre hundred livis were list. The fire was Blurted by the burning of a film on a picture ma chine that bad not been properly pro tected, and the death roll was greatly increased because of the want of es Ha. It Is ' understood that both the Cairo picture shows have been pro vided with metallic booths for their machines. If the exits are all that they should be then our picture thea tres are probably as feafe as" they can be made. Since a mefe alarm of fire or an' alarm from any cause may cre ate a panic and a wild rush for exits with consequent destruetion of life, many and ample exits easy if access, conspicuous and well lighted are vitally imortaiit under any cir cumstance. UNCLE JOE TO I; LAME. Sidetracking the postal savings bank bill in congress, not withstand ing that there Is a majority in th senate and house for a measure mak ing state as well as national bank de positories In the districts where de posits originate, is proving more of a task than hostile banking interests anticipated. Members of congress are hearing from constituents in no -uncertain way ' and - Senator Carter waa encouraged to state his belief that the bill can be brought to a vol" "before many hours,", in splt? of the Aidrich-i'program". Nevertheless the proposal of the Chicago Clearing House Association to refer the qu u tloo of postal savings banks to the Aldrich Currency Commission, h is been " related by bankers' associ i tlons in one state after another tint I Its purpose, that of ' postponement, has become patent. The curious fa-V Is that inquiry shows an increasing number of bar. Ken, who favor pxistul banks as a means to get into circula tion the $300,000,000, a sort of fine tooth comb to get the small sums nol now banked and stimulate thrift and "the banking habit" Bankers who join i the protests against the meas ure, according to the program or someone, privately admit that the op position Is a mistake likely to prove likely to prove serious by irritating "the plain people" of whom Lincoln spoke. Meanwhile, the situation is outlined by the magazine Success In this editorial: 'Would you like to put your small savings In the hands of Uncle Sam. the roose reliable banker la the world, who never speculates with your savings on Wall street, and who always pays your money back when you want It? Well, you can't, so that's all there is about it. The Bankers' Association does not like the Idea. It is of no use for you to arpie that the principal governments of Europe are taking care of the peo ples' small savings and paying then Interest, and that they haven't hurt tb private banks at all. You would only' be wasting your breath, because there 1b a man with whiskers out in Danville, Illinois, who doesn't care fur postal savings banks. There is no us of Uncle Sam's trying to ko into tho bonking businesa without the approv al of Undo Joe. Meanwhile, let us console ourselves with John D. Rockefeller's latest dietujn, that It Isn't good for us to save money any way". ' TUB FltEKJIIT BUREAU. Commenting upon an instiiutioi which has been the subject of much comment In Cairo, the Memphis Scimitar of recent date said: No Institution has bee'.i of more benefit to this city than ihe Memphis Freight Bureau. Established in 1895, it has Tor thir teen years, under the direction of ,. S. Davant, worked unceasingly to secure the best possible transporta tion rates for the traffic of Memphis. Nowhere else in the UnVed States have the interests of shippers been looked after more intelligently, earn estly or effectively. Largely through the efforts of this bureau we have better railroad tar iffs than any other city of the south. Tiiorughout West ' Tennessee, North ern Alabama, tne greater part oi .Mis sissippi, practically the whole of Ar kansas, Eastern Oklahoma and West ern Kentucky our suepiority is very marked over any other town. At more distant points, such as those of Texas and Western Okla homa, Memphis stands on equal foot ing with St. Louis and other riva's. If our merchants do not get their share, and the lion's eaaie at that. In most of this territory it is be cause they do not care to go after it vigorously and nut because the freight rates do not favor them. One reason for these advantagts lies in the fart we have river trans portation, and this furnishes a basi.i ; ot competitive rates which riverle;s towns cannot secure. But we should j not be able to obtain such favorab'o terms If it were not for the supple- mental efforts of the Freight Mireuu. . Another great object which ' It ha accomplished is the excedingly low switching charges which obtain on nearly all the railroads entering this cuy. me nureau nas women- bureau has worked' censingiy 10 mis en.i, ana- inrougn i'sng opinion instrumentality neany an me ran- roads nave been compelled to give the remarkably low charge of $2.00 per car. It Is true that these figures i have beeu secured through the city i council from time to time, as a con-. dltion precedent to the granting of franchises, but these bargains, 'would never have been driven except upon the insistence of Mr. Davant and his associates. It is beoanwo of these extraordinary ; transportation facilities and advant ages that Memphis Is fat becoming the greatest distributing point this .side of the Ohio, and it Is for the sam? reason that new manufactories and distributing warehouses-- can be secured for Memphis more easily than any other point. If her people will all pull together and go after them. imtif 2 s TODAY IN HISTORY r?s vxra rre wn i , , -, r t -i 1- i ' . i February 17. 1C21 The Plymouth colonists cho e( Milts Stand Ish their captain. lif.9 Six negroes whipped by the English in Boston for drum ming for the Americans. 181.ri Pence between the Unit "d States and Great Britain an t nouueed.

Co., vs. Hamburger, 155 Federal Reporter, 819 a railroad company filed bills In equity to restrain defendants from dealing in tickets Issued for passage to and from the Jamestown exposi tion. Defendant contended that the no-transferable clause in the tickets Issued was invalid because not refer red to in the published schedule of rates, etc., required by the inter-stare commerce law, and the circuit comt sustained their objection. Liability of Railway Company for Injuries to Child Playing Near Turn table. In Thompson vs. Baltimore O. R. Co., Atlantic Reporter, 708, n so-called turntable case was decided apparently in conflict with prior de cisions. A boy eight years old was si nick by some part of the machin ery projecting from the turn-table an 1 injured. The action was brought on the theory that the premises of de fendant, being peculiarly attractive to children, should have been guarded The majority of the supreme court of Pennsylvania held that the boy was where ho had no right to be. and that the defendant was under no duty ac- un-(tively to protect him. In the dissent- it was said that thlsdec- (rjne took away a protection which Tind heretofore been accorded in al jurisdictions where the lite of a child was of greater importance than anv commercial interest, and that it com pletely destroyed the maxim, "Sic utere tuo alb-mim 4iou laedas." NOTHING SENSATIONAL DEVEL OPS IN OPENING SESSIONS AT CHICAGO. ALLEGED BRIBERY CASE Will Be Discussed Today Comisky And Murphy Announce Additions to Their Teams New League Proposed. Chicago, Feb. 10 The opening ses sions of boih the National and Ameri can bast-ball leagues developed little in the way of sensational develop ments not withstanding the rumors of the past week. The business trans acted was not sufficiently important to cause the average baseball enthus iast to pay more than passing atten tion to the councils of the magnates. At the session of the National h-ngii", the schedule was adopted without a change. The alleged attempt, at bribing I Umpires Klein and Johnstone during the dosing games In New York be lt ween Chicago and New Yolk was not discussed and mav not be taken i up at this meeting. The two important moves of the session were made by Presidents Comiskey and Murphy of the Ameri can "and National Chicago teams re- , Sieylvely.f The fomner announced that, he had secured C. C. Cravatli. tho Boston Ann-riean pitcher, and Murphy that he had annexed Georg Browne to ,hls fielding istaff. Th American league playing schedule was iliscussetl but final action was postponed until tomorrow. In th" short session of the National Commis sion the National agreement was th sole topic for discussion. While no definite action was taken It Is pro li able that Ihe ational agreement will be amended along the lines of tall: Indulged in at Cincinnati last month between the American association iaii.l ihe Eastern league. I At the session of the National C(m- niission tomorrow W. R. Byan. at Wausau, Wis., will endeavor to Inter est (hat body in the proposed placing of teams in Minneapolis and St. Panl. The projected Minnesota and Wis consin league Is behind the move ment. Other cities in the proxseJ league are Eau Claire. I.a('rosse. Wausau and Superior In Wisconsin Duluth anil Winona in Minnesota.

"The trouble is," went on Doodles' father, pausing in the process of carv ing to glance accusingly ut his wife and daughter, "that everybody else in this house combines to spoil him."

"I am the only one that the young Jackanapes can't cajole and wheedle. When he conies In I intend to give him a very serious talking to." There was the sound of a key In the front door. Then with an eur-split- ting whistle and a clatter of nooks, Doodles blew airily In and presently dashed Into the dining-room. "Hello there, dad," shouted Doodles, with an accompanying slap on his fa ther's shoulder. His sister gave him a warning glance, which went wide of its mark. "Say," remarked Doodles, falling into his chair, "that roast beef looks good. An inch thick, dad, and right through the center. Gee, I could eat old shoes." "If you were treated to some of the delicacies you mention when you come in at this hour from school you might mend your ways a little," suid his re proving parent. Doodles' eyebrows went up as his father handed his plate to him. "Now, dad," suid Doodles, argu mentatlvely, "how could 1 get home when there was a special mass meet ing of the sophomore class? Do you suppose I would ditch the fellows when "But, Dad, There Was a Fight 9n." 1 was one of the bunch to get the thing up?

END OF THE WORLD PREDICTION MADE ABOUT EVERY TWENTY-FIVE YEARS. Numberless Are the Prophets Who Have Set Days for Dread Happen ing Scientists Declare It Will Last Long. It may . be Interesting to the timid to know that ihe end of the world-has been similarly predicted on an aver age of once every 25 years since the Hist recording prophecy of the bishop of Hippo, in ;t:5 A. D. Since then there have been hundreds of dates set for the end of the world, each pre diction taken more or less seriously by some people. In the year Dl)9 thousands of people from every quarter of the old world sold their possessions aud began a journey toward Jerusalem. Numerous prophecies had beeu made sotting the year 10U0 as the end of the world. The failure of the predictions to come true resulted In great suffering among the poorer classes. The year 1212 saw thousauds of people from Kurope and Asia journey ing to the Mediterranean sea, which prophets had predicted would be come dry in order that they might walk to the Holy Land for the end of the world. An Italian priest predicted the end of the world In LiliS. but the prophecy was not generally believed. In laM, however, the prophecy of Steifiel, the friend of Martin Luther, which set October 3 of that year us the day tor the end of ihe world, was widely believed. Thousands of Steiffei's fol lowers disposed of ail their posses ions find ailed the coming of the greut event. As tho day passed and nothing out of the ordinary occurred itn- angry men and women turned on tt iffel aud nearly killed him. In recent years numerous prophets have set various days u-i the end of l he world. The Adveutista, when their follower numbered thousands, pre pared for the coming of the world's nd in both 1S; and lst-i. During 1 8 ! t nearly all the people 111 the city of Kharkow, Russia, sold their belongings ami awaited the end of the world, which thev (Irmly be lieved would take place in that year. The winter of Ib'j'J and moo was se vere and hundreds of the inhabitants uied from hunger and exposure. In the last ten years preachers and religions enthusiasts throughout this count iv have set days for the end ot the world. Nearly every year from LS'Jo to l!llo has been selected as the fatal year, while several have set the date us the year 2UM0. Half a million Porto Rlcuus spent Thursday, May 22, IfOI, in prayer, awaiting the coming of destruction. As a coni last to the dates set by students of the Bible for the world's end are the predictions of scientists, who base their figures on scientific UforlcH. Ihe very shortest time any jf thOie men give for the end of the voiid Is 3.UOO,OU;).U0 years. A Question of Courtesy. When President Roosevelt and his party were hunting in the jungles of Louisiana they had with iheni us chief cook and bottle washer a native darky named Sam, whose politeness was only exceeded by his professed fear lessness In the fare of danger. After n camp had been opened 3am was sent out to reconnoiter in the vi cinity and report prospects for game. Soon after he had disappeared un earthly yell3 were heard and he wa.l seen leaping and bounding through the thic ket in a desperate effort to over come time and distance in reaching camp. On his ariival, hntles.s and breathless, he hi most f-H into the arms of the chief guard, who ex claimed: "Why, Sam, what's the matter? What scared you so?" "I Isn't skeered, massa," stammered Sam, as he gasped for breath an-1 rolled his eyes in the direction from which he came; "I jis come back to ax J on ef it wud be peiiite fob. dls nlggah to shoot dat bar dat chased me befo' gibbln da fust chance to da president of da United States?''
