No wonder the poets love the open
country— it is a place in which they
can stretch their wings and let fancy
have her own sweet will. Madison
Cawein used to find the inspiration for
some of his lovliest songs of nature
round about Jeffersontown. He knew
every haunt of bird and flo\
green recess and daisied field— he was
as much a citizen of the #oods
birds and in the books which he has
given the world there are man}' beau-
tiful lyrics which he learned while
lounging under he spreading boughs
and garnering the lore of the wild
things of forest, field and stream.

THE COMING SUBURB.
Jeffersontown, already past
century mark, the oldest town in the
has been called "Louisville's
Coming Suburb;" that was several
a. To-day it is the suburb
of the Falls City, and with reason.
Here are broad and fertile acres, in
of the most elevated portions of
the county, easily reached by a good
turnpike, the Southern Railroad, and
electric cars of the Beargrass
The last mentioned line affords the
pettiest suburban ride out of Louis-
lie: it is the only one that does not

oughfares, and from Douglass Boule-
vard to Dr. Wells' drug store at the
corner of the Public Square the route
is through one of the most beautiful
sections of country in the State, or
elsewhere, for that matter. Wooded
hill and grass-clad vale, a landscape
as beautiful as a picture, the Fern
Creek Hills and the Indiana Knobs,
rich gardens, plenteous wheat-fields,
and shaded pasture-lands, knee-deep
purpling bluegrass, through which
browse fatted beeves and yellow-
skinned Jerseys,— it's a landscape fit
for the song of poet and the artist'
Here are sites of beauty for the
country homes of the tired and blase
urban dwellers, where rest and peace
and quiet bring back the spring and
elasticity of youth, where the reckless
young man, who, with an utter disre-
gard of facts, recently charged the
landowners hereabouts with refusing
$1,000 an acre propositions, may if he
can borrow the necessary car-fare,

riety the most luscious, garden pro-
ducts the choicest; and every evidence
of prosperity is apparent. Here is

Jeffersontown, Ky., June 13, W.
To the Citizens of Jefferson County:
Having been born, and lived ir, this
county all my life, and flattering my-
self with the belief that I have as
many friends as any other man, I can
but feel it my duty, as one who is ex-
tremely desirous of aiding in my hum-
vay the upbuilding of any enter-
prise calculated to advance our inter-
ests, to say to you that the establish-
ment of a county paper in our midst
will be of incalculable benefit to even
the remotest section of our county.
The. Jeffersonian, of which this is the
first issue, is the first strictly local pa-
•ve have ever had, and it is "up
;" to give it our earnest support
Messrs. Alcock and Barrickman are
young men, amply qualified, intelli-
gent, worthy and experienced, and, as
I understand, propose to give us an
up-to-date, clean county paper devo-
tee to the advancement of county af-
fairs. They expect to have a corres-
pondent in every section of the coun-
ty, which will not only be of interest
1 in the county, but will be as,,A
LETTER FROM HOME, to those of Our
families and friends that are in other
parts of the country.
Knowing the good people of this
county so well, I feel that I can as-
these gentlemen of your hearty
co-operation, and I want it distinctly
understood that I write this altogeth-
unsolicited, and simply for the pur-
pose of, as I have said, lending my aid
a the starting of this worthy enter-
rise. • Very truly,
E. R. Sprowl.

Danville, 111. — Spinsters and bach-
elor maids of this, "Uncle Joe" Can-
non's home town, have joined hands
in a common cause.
They want the town bachelors taxed,
Furthermore, they want the tax grad-
uated according to age. The older
the man, the bigger the tax, demand
the unwedded women of Danville.
And, what's more, this is
dream; they have drafted their de-
mands in black and white, and it is
now before the common council of the
town In the form of a proposed ordi-
Ltterally, it is a case of pretty much
the whole unmarried female popula-
tion of the town waiting at the
In Danville they have a delicate line
drawn between spinsters and bachelor
maids. A spinster, according to Dan-
ville definition, is one who is a maiden
t help it. A bachelor
But be that as it may, all distinc-
tions have been cast to the winds.
Those that can't and those that won't
alike demand that bachelors be taxed,
and the longer the eligible one re-
mains a bachelor the bigger his tax
mounts up, year after year.
There is no anonymity about the
thing, either. Old maids and budding
debutantes have signed their names
in black and white to the petition.
Stirs Up City Officers.
Of course, the petition upset the
city officers. A meeting was hurried-
ly called by Mayor John H. Lewman,
City Clerk John Torrance, Fire Chief
G. W. Bridges and Councilmen Clar-
ence T. Brittingham, John H. Har-
rison. Joseph Mies, Samuel Strauss,
Michael S. Plant, Dr. C. H. Evans,
Clarence Baum and several other
prominent citizens attended. Speaker
Cannon was invited, but his Wash-
ington duties kept him away.
The matter was carefully gone oven
The pros and cons were_ put forward."
i and bachelors and one
a"^ave their opinions.
"Remember, gentlemen," couns
the mayor, "it is a very serious mat-
ter and a very delicate one. which de-
mands our most patient attention,
dread to think what might happen
should we take a wrong stand in the
[ Committee Chosen.
Finally 'the whole proposition fii
left to a committee, of which all were
to be bachelors and a majority law-
yew. Thia committee of experts was
carefully chosen from among the most
~oular bachelors of the town, in or-
.u- that everybody might be sure of
a fair show. It consisted of
Stenographer Harry Britting-
tm, Circuit Clerk John W. Barger
.cd Attorneys Thomas A. Graham, M.
Keegan, William H. Dwyer and
ay F. Barnett. After careful con-
. sideration they decided to issue a
-statement to the expectant unmarried
aembers or the gentler sex.
They took the bull by the horns. In
a word, they demanded that before
action be taken they have the priv-
ilege of meeting the petitioners Here
is the bachelors' official reply to the
proposition for an ordinance provid-
ing for a graduated bachelor tax for
the unwedded adult male population
"We, the single men of Danville,
would like to make the acquaintance
.of the unmarried women of this com-
munity who are so much interested in
us. We would like the privilege of
petitioning the city council, as a mat-
ter of self-defense while awaiting fur-
ther moves of the enemy, to enact an
ordinance taxing these unmarried
women of Danville $50 for each time
they turn one of us down, not because
we '.eel aggrieved or wish to get mar-
ried, but as a matter of protection.
"The above appears to be a fair
poposition. If the unmarried women
of this city who are behind this move-
ment against our peace of mind are
in earnest and have a grain of human
sympathy, they will meet our propo-
sitions fairly and squarely. It is up
to them to do so, and we don't think
they will evade the self-imposed re-
This didn't pour oil upon the
troubled waters of Danville's spinster-
hood at all.
"There isn't a peg on which to hang
a single romance,' sneered one elderly
maiden, "let alone hundreds of ro-
mances. Let's reply to them, girls!"
"Let's!" chorused spinsters and
bachelor maids, all in one breath.
And after a week this volley of hot
shot was turned loose upon the ene-
"We have read the reply of the Dan-
ville bachelors to our appeal to the
city council, in which they make a
counter proposition to tax us $50 for
every time we turn them down. We
are willing to agree to this provided
they will agree that the following
proposition is a correct position for us
"Objects" That Are Barred.
" 'We do not propose to turn down
any of them because they are
face, but when one of them
around to see us, fastened to the end
of a big cigar, having not the slightest
semblance to a man. and who has the
appearance of not being able to sup-
port himself, much less a wife — then,
out he goes.'
One would think by the comments
in relation to this matter that there is
such a thing as a matrimonial tree,
and all that any girl wanting a hus-
band must do it to shake the tree and
down comes a helpmeet.
Laying aside tne thought of such, a
ridiculous proposition, we desire
present the facts. We wish to say
frankly that we feel rebellious against
fate that forces us into the com-
a living. Not a day Dasses that
do not feel that nameless longing—
a yearning for protection, for shelter,
for a good husband's tender care and
"How we hate the noise, bustle and
worry of the commercial life! How
we hate the competition, the clamor,
the drudgery, incumbent upon us who
must go through life alone, battling
every day against a cold and heart-
less world in an effort to earn our
"Every finer instinct in us cries out
against the coarse, rude life of the
business world. Women, and only
women, possess warm hearts which
have depth* and heights of feeling
that a man can never hope to under-
stand and which many of our gender
are too sensitive to admit."
Thus did the spinster souls of Dan-
ville's maidenhood lay themselves
bare to*ll the world.
Results have already followed.
Bachelors who golfed with other
bachelors last year are golfing
In mixed foursomes this season.
Bachelors who went to dinners and
dances and teas during the winter
months with no further idea that
their fair friends thought of anything
more serious than the latest mode in
dresses or the daintiest confection In
headgear have had their eyes opened.
Cupid Will Be Kept Busy.
Within a short time many sweet se-
crets may be confessed. It is freely
predicted that M the social upheaval
crystalizes Into an ordinance provid-
ing for a bachelor tax, the crop of au-
tumn and winter brides will beat all
Things have gone so far now that
City Clerk John Torrance, dean of
Danville bachelordom. has been threat-
ened with social and
cism unless he takes l
jorities, much to the joy of his aronies
of the clubs. Now he has cone out
with what is both a suggestiontand
"The old maids have taken us by
surprise,'" said he. "We werebf the
opinion they were all more thaaj satis-
fled with their condition. In fi
eral of the boys have complaint that
they have been adopted as 'bqthers'
by our fairest spinsters, in
closer alliance. We have boi
them for years with candy,
theater tickets, dances, mofcllght
rides and proposals of

rooms of these gft -rsl *Wio - aV
peared human icicles, notwithstand-
ing our most ardent campaigns. I
would suggest that the bachelo girls
also form a club, and that their -ooms
contain a reception or billing aid coo-
ing room where their frien* ran
spend a pleasant hour occas^nally,
becoming acquainted with tho$ who
desire to be brides.
"Of course, I don't want tra to
think we are over-anxious to ge mar-
ried, but on behalf of the bacheors of
Danville I will say that there an some
of us who will surrender gra efully
and gladly if we have the right oppor-
tunity. This would be a bette- plan
than to try to bulldoze us by laving
an ordinance passed taxing us. That
would only make us more stulDorn."
And so it is still "Waiting »t the
Church" in more ways than cue in
graph. He says: "In 1872, when
boy, staying at Hulland ward, Derb;
shire, I called on an old woman, Eliz:
beth Durose, then 97, widow of a farm-
er, who told me that her grandmothi
when a girl, had known a man — a d
tant relative — who had witnessed the
execution of Charles t The old w(
an then took out of a coruer c
board an old prayer-book, bound
black leather, which was, I fancy, of
the time of Queen Anne, for I remem-
ber it had a frontispiece picturing
parson in gown and bands, and wear-
ing a long wig, saying prayers in a
'three-decker.' Opening it at the form
of service for January 30, she showed
me a piece of coarse linen, of the color
of a dead leaf, which she said was
portion of a handkerchief which had
been dipped in the king's blood, and
was given to her grandmother by the
above eye-witness. When it first pass-
ed into her possession it was nearly
entire, but her children had played
with it, and this was all she had
aged to preserve." — Derby (England)
Wolf in Italian Town.
It is not often that European eyes
witness the spectacle of a wolf trot-
ting leisurely through the streets In
broad daylight, and with little appar-
ent concern. Such an incident hap 1
pened recently in the Italian town of
Annezzano. The wolf went sniffling
first in the direction of one house
then of another as he went along.
Passing by the 'hospital, an attendant
of sporting instincts saw the game,
and, rushing for a gun, gave chase.
Before long he got a chance for a shot,
which hit the wolf, and, following this
up with another, the beast was slain.
Its presence in the town is accounted
for by the theory that the beast had
been hunting over night away from
his haunts, and after eating to satiety
and sleeping through the night, was
making his way back to his lair.
YEARNING FOR OLD FRIEnDS.
"If I were in the publishing' busi-
ness," said the gray-headed ma», "I'd
get out a school reader ant put
into it some of the old " poem« and
stories that were favorites forty
years ago. It would do the young-
sters good to get acquainted, with
that ancient and honorable liter-
ature, while as for their parents; who
sometimes look through a schootbook
seeking in vain for a familiar echo of
their own childhood days, why, they
would get a whiff of the inspiration
of youth that would lop at least 15
years off their age. I'd put in that
3 about "Make Me a Child Again
Just for To-night," and that other one
where the little girl wants to knbw if
'God Un't on the ocean just the same
as on the land?' Then there are The
Gambler's Wife,' 'Lewellyn and. His
Dog," 'We Are Seven,' and "Lazy Ned.'
I'd print all these old gems and sand-
wich them in between the speeches
of Patrick Henry and Daniel Webster,
and that old classic about the cohtent-
boy who had no kick against life
as he found it, even though he hadn't
a turnip to eat. Maybe my pook,
i I had finished compiling! It,-
wouldn't find favor with a modern
school board, but I'll warrant you It
would strike a sympathetic chord In
the breast of many a reader, old and
LINK WITH THE DEAD PAST.
An interesting Derbyshire "link with
le past" is recalled by Mr. 3. H.
Sharpley of Hatfield college, Doncass,
in a letter to the Sheffield Tele-
Aldrich and Whitman.
T. B. Aldrich knew Walt Whitman
and liked him personally, although he
wo^ld never admit that Whitman was

* endeavored to convert Mr.
from this state of heathen
to Whitman's genius, but

Mr. Aldrich's delightful story of

from him— magnificently, but, alas, ir-
revocably—in Pfaff's restaurant
Properly Sized Up.
"William," said an Oil City woman
to her husband, "I gave away an old
pair of your trousers to-day." "You
did? What color were they?" "Blue,
I think." "Great Scott! Woman, do
you know what you've done?" "Why
—no — William, I don't. Was there any
money in them?" "Was there any
money in them? There happened to
be $50 in them which I intended hand-
ing you for a present." "William,"
said the woman, quietly, "I believe you
are lying." Which he was, of course.

Precautions Against Electric Fires.
If your dwelling is electrically light-
ed never place wood, clothes or other
inflammable material against
wires, meters or switches; never
an electric wire as a clothesline, and
see to it that your dwelling is kept
free from rats, as these pests often
gnaw the insulation from the wires.
The amount of loss from "electric
fires" in the United States in one year,
according to the Saturday Evening
Post, is $15,000,000.

The Irishman sees everything
through rose colored glasses, says a
writer in the Guidon. He is support-
ed, too, by a simple, sturdy faith, a
spirit of resignation and unworldli-
ness worthy of the saints of old.
The dread blight had fallen on the
fields in most of the district where we
were visiting in Ireland, and the po-
tato vines hung limp and brown. No
word of complaint was spoken, and
when the likelihood of famine was
mentioned the answer came:
"Danger, ma'am? Tes, there is, in-
deed, but God is good. He'll find a

stretch of what not long sirice had
evidently been thickly wooded land,
stood stump after stump of giant
trees. Four or five years ago. when
the winter was exceptionally long and
cold, the peasants suffered from scar-

ed proprietor to sell them wood, of-
fering not only to pay his price, but to
fell the trees and carry them off. He
Again and again they begged, for
the suffering grew intense, but he
would not let his land be marred. One
night there came a wind so frightful
that it seemed for a time as if the
"big wind" were blowing again. In
the morning the highway along this
proprietor's domain was Impassable.
Huge trees, blown to the ground, lay
across the road for a distance of two
miles, and the forest beauty was a
thing of the past. The town authori-
ties ordered the obstruction cleared
away, and the peasants got for noth-
ing more than they had been refused
" Twas the hand of God was in
that, ma'am," I was told, "for, with all
the wind, not a poor man's cot was
harmed, nor another tree on the coun-
tryside, only those. God always looks
after His poor."
