How's This? Answers Miss Gora Tieids i paper and in a pleasant way I desire a few words in reply. Yes, I admit that man, sensi- tive man, can always find some thing for the woman to do and the proper thing to do, too. Why ? Because the law recognizes him as the head of the family. At the altar, if I am not mistaken, the word "obedience" figured to a certain extent and the woman as well as the man subscribed to that oath. She promised that she would"be unto him a loving, a faithful and and obedient wife." I admit that the two after assuming the marriage vows are sworn partners in the battle of life and neither can dodge their responsibilitiesWhat would the home be without the man's management, labor and toil? It would be like a camel's lair in the Sahara. Nothing to go upon, nothing to increase the luxury of living, nothing to make home happy. While he is out on the hillside, bearing down upon the plow handles, or in the office trying to untangle the complexities that arise in business, she must be at home exercising that best foot movement or the home will become a poor place of rest and refuge when he returns to it. All of us are apt to conclude that our individual burdens are the heaviest. Selfishness prompts it, g -- but it seems to me that woman (I bless the very ground she walks on) is more likely to think her burdens are the heaviest and thus break up. by her complaints, much of the felicity tl.at would otheswise come into the life of the husband. Man may do all in his power to make home happv. but unless the woman knows her duty and does it home will be as the desert. However, there are exceptions to most all rules and the man, by his conduct, may likewise break up the happiness of the home. Circumstances al SWatch This Notice And Heed Its Purpose. The third year of the Eagle ends scon and none of our friends will want to be owing us on subscriptions when the year If this article has a blue ends. pencil mark across it you owe us, or we think you do, and though it be ever so little please come in or send in and let's get square. Our support depends upon what we get through this paper and no man could be our friend who would want to take this from us. Kindly heed the warning. fialcribe for The Eagle, 1 a year say that some women, before they would surrender to a man's rights and let him rule, would ruin the home and allow the watch-doto wag his tail to the husband until he dies. Now. Miss Fields, let's be fair. In my first article I did not mean to be unjust to women. I never thought of trying to justify the mean conduct of some men. My whole object was to offer a word of counsel to all concerned. I never meant to reflect on anyone and I could not see why you wanted to take up the cudgel. Again, let's reason some more. Have you read the account of Adam and Eve? They were in the garden (their home) surrounded by every luxury." Did Adam go off and come home swaggering, thus breaking up the peace and happiness of our mother and ruining the home? Was it because of some act of Adam that Paradise was lost? No, dear child, Eve took a nibble at the fruit; she gave also to her husband and he did eat. No ona will dispute that Eve started the trouble, and I am afraid that it has ever been thus with woman. May God bless her and enable her at all times to put her best foot forward. And may man do the same. Ned Ison. J Osca'.oosa, Ky. Who Is King? By W. C. Baker. King of kings is. He, Christ, the one that set us free. Oh, glory to His blessed name! The one, for us, that suffered shame. And how he hung on Calvary's Tree, You and I from sin to free: And in one morning He did rise To his home beyond the skies. Now in His Father's house to be Throughout all eternity; Christ, the one who set us free, King forever He shall be. Struck a Rich Mine S.W. Bends, of Coal City.

Life on Panama Canal has had one frightful drawback, malaria trouble, that has brought suffering and death to thousands. The germs cause chills, fever and ague, biliousness, jaundice, lassitude, weakness and general debility. But Electric Bitters never fail to destroy them and cure malaria troubles.

"For months Caleb Powers has been making ithe statement all over the district that D. C Edwards in his five years stay in Congress, and for which he has been paid $35,000, has not passed a single law that has redounded to the general good of the masses of the people of the district. He has been challenging Edwards and the papers supporting him to point out such a law. So far they have not done so. They cannot, and yet they ask us to return Mr. Edwards to Congress and endorse this record, as well as his record in only making a fifteen minute speech the first three years he was there. The district won't be hoodooed any longer. Caleb Powers will be the next representative in Congress from this district." The Best Hour of Life is when you do some great deed or discover some wonderful fact. This hour came to J. R. Pitt, of Rocky Mt., N. C, when he was suffering intensely, as he says, "from the worst cold I ever had. I then proved to my great satisfaction, what a wonderful cold and cough cure Dr. King's New Discovery is. For, after taking one bottle, I was entirely cured. You can't say anything too good of a medicine like that." Its the surest and best remedy for diseased lungs, hemorrhages, la grippe, asthma, hay fever, any throat or lung trouble. 50c, $1. Trial bottle free. Guaranteed by all druggists. intelligent voters. Mr. Finley made no attempt to discuss the issues but made speeches noted for their vulgarity and abuse. Casey county is safe in the column of Edwards.'" The above clipped from the Somerset Herald is misleading in every detail and hides the facts, The Edwards speakers were hissed down and did not finish their speeches. Finley 's argument was so sledge hammer like, that many an undecided voter walked into the Powers ranks to remain until he is nominated. Powers spoke in this county last week and crowds from two to six hundred met him at every point and women and children metliim on the ruadshk'and wished him success. He made an educational address to the Casey County Institute Wednesday and was warmly greeted. He spoke at night to a crowded house filled with anxious listen ers. It is safe to predict that Powers will carry Casey from one thousand to fifteen hundred majority. The votes stand today at ten to one. W.C.Cundiff, Clerk Casey Co. Court, F. A. Land, Circuit Court Cleik. 'J.P.Richardson, jailer. O Caleb Powers admits that he had money which had been donated to him out on interest in 1905. The books of the Defense Fund Committee at Louisville show that they paid the expenses of the only trial he ever had after 1903. Will Caleb tell what he has done with the people's money? O To Caleb Powers In your advertisements you are charging that the Democrats are for me and insinuting that I have been supporting Democrats or Democratic measures. It you can show where I have ever voted and acted for and with the Democratic party in or out of Congress I will quit this race. If you cannot then you will have to quit after September 15. D. C. Edwards. o Caleb Powers grows frantic in his advertisements and speecher because he says the Democrats are supporting Edwards, yet he boasts that 50,000 of them signed his petition for pardon.- - Do you not know, Mr.Powers, that no Republican was ever elected to a state office in Kentucky without Democratic votes? Did not the Democrats help elect Bradley and his ticket in '95? Did they not help elect Taylor and his ticket in '99? Did they not help elect Willson and his ticket in to the United States Senate without Democratic votes? Do you charge that these men are corrupt or not good Re. publicans because they received some Democratic support? o To Caleb Powers Thanks the-Eag- le at Chehalis I found everything Your advertisement to the effect that call you a thief is a wilful and malici ous falsehood, and the man who wrote it knew it at the time, D.
