phrase, "the art of self-defense," shows
the opinion that the chief enemies a man
has-to defend himself from are visible
and external. But the real danger of
every man is from minute and often in
visible foes. In the air we breathe and
the water we drink are countless minute
organisms leagued against the health of
the body. .
The one defense against these enemies
is to keep the blood pure. Dr. Pierce's

WHEN THE FISH BEGIS TO BITE
When the warm creeps in the water
and the worms begin to crawl,
And the birds begin to chirrup round
the brook and waterfall;
When the toad begins to holler and
the turtles come in sight,
That is when the season opens and the
fish begin to bite.
When the man housed in his office in
v the noisy, bustling town
Feels that awfully itchy feeling from
his stockings to his crown ; .
When he slams his bulky ledger and
vamooses in the night,
That is when the fever's got him and
the fish begin to bite.
When the robin's cheery carol comes
across the balmy breeze,
And the boy along the mill-stream
creeps beneath the budding treqp;
When he drops his hook so gently
where the little shiners skite, '
There is joy within his bosom, when
the fish begin to bite.
When the landlord in the country ad
vertises "board and rooms,"
With his rivers full of fishes and his
fields full of perfumes;
When he writes his house is airy and
mosquitoless at night,
That Is when the city empties and the
"Ash" begin to bite.

MURDER IN SECOND DEGREE.
Woman Heard the Verdict Unmoved No

Father and Two Brothers Now
By Telegraph 'o the Morning Star.
Kansas Citt, Mo., June 15. A
-verdict of guilty of murder in the sec
ond decree was -returned to-day
against Mrs. Philip H. Kennedy nee
Prince, for the killing of her husband
in February last. Her punishment
was fixed at ten years in the peniten
tiary. , (,
Judge Wofford entered the court
door at 9.45, and immediately sent
for the prisoner. Mrs. Kennedy was
brought in a few minutes later, ac
companied by her father, her married
sister and others. A moment later the
jury filed in.. The foreman read the
verdict in a calm voice and Mrs. Ken
nedy heard it in the same manner. A
moment later she broke into sobs and
was escorted back to her cell.
Notice of appeal was filed by coun
sel for the defence.
Judge Wofford then asked if both
sides were ready to proceed with the
trial of O. W., W. M. and Bert Prince.
The State announced its readiness but
the defence asked for postponement
until Monday. This was granted.
Judge Wofford added: "I am not
satisfied that Bert Prince and the
other men were at the Ridge building
at the time of the killing and shall call
in another jury to sit on the case.
Kennedy and Miss Prince were mar
ried in the Circuit Court, February
4th. Two days before he was killed
Kennedy brought suit to have the
marriage set aside, alleging duress,
and charging W. O. Prince, the girl's
father, and Will Prince, her brother,
with forcing him to marry at the point
of a revolver. The father and two
brothers, Will and Bertv are now
awaiting trial on a charge of conspir
ing to kill Kennedy.

Hutchinson's Testimony Before the Indus
By Telexrapb to tbe Hernlng Star.
Washington, June 13. D. P. Hut
chinson, president of the board of trus
tees of Charlotte, N. C, testified to
day before the industrial commission,
concerning the successful effort made
by Charlotte to establish good roads
in the surrounding country. He said
that ninety miles of macadam road
had been established at a probable cost
of $250,000. Convict labor, he said, is
used in constructing the road beds, as
free labor would cost from 30 to 60
per cent. more. Mr. Hutchinson said
that the saving in cost to rolling stock
was more than equal to the cost of the
roads and that the value of farming
and other lands lying upon the im
proved highways has been enchanced
50 per cent, since the construction of
the new roads.

The Jericho Debanu society was
Squar Joslyn's Idea. It uawned on
him one afternoon as he was hoeln 1
his garden, and that even In he come
over to the postofflce and made a
speech and started the ball roiun. a
week later the society had its first
tneetln. There was a hot time fur
about an hour. Of the 40 men present
35 wanted to be president, but after
awhile, and by puttin in two votes fur
himself, the souar was duly eiectea.
Deacon Spooner was made referee, and
the other offices wasn't struggled after
to any extent. There wasn t any ae-
hfttln at the first meetln, Dut bquar
Joslyn made a speech of acceptance
which raised the price of butter in
Jericho 10 cents a pound. After sayin
that he wouldn't exchange places with
the president of the United States he
began with the year 750 B. o., and tne
wav he come whirlln along down to
the year 1900 made the glass In the
windows rattle. He excited the crowd
as he hit Nero, brought applause as he
touched on Coinmbus, and when he
got through with Washington there
wasn't no holdln Enos Williams, and
Jonas Bebee and Aaron Bradshaw was
in tears. After the speech was over
Klder Spooner flggered It up and de
clared that the squar had made 27 dif
ferent D'lnts in his oration, which was
four p'ints more than Demosthenes or
Cicero had ever made.
The subject fur debate at the next
meetln was "Does Honesty Pay?" The
"FOLLKB ME BACK TO THE DATS OF JULIUS
number on the affirmative and negative
side was about even, and Ebenezer
White was appointed to lead off and
tell how honesty paid him. Each
speaker was to be limited to ten min
Its. Ebenezer had been thlnkin it
over fur three or four days, and when
he got up he began with:
'Toiler me back to the days of Julius
Caesar. When Cresar was a young man
of 22, he hadn't a dollar to his name
and no show to strike a job. lie had
about made np his mind to commit
suicide when he found a Ave dollar
goldpiece in the road. His first thought
was to use the money to start in busi
ness, but it was only a temptation.
His honesty wouldn't permit such a
thing. He went around Inquirln who
had lost $5. and at length found the
owner," and the owner took a likin to
him and pushed him along until he was
finally made a king."
"That's one tally mark fur the affirm
ative side." said 'the deacon as the
speaker sat down, "and I decide that
Ebenezer baa made five p'ints. We
will now hear from Jonas Bebee 6n
the negative side."
Toiler me back to the days of Julius
Ctesar." began Jonas as he rose np.
"I object!" protested Ebenezer. "Hav
in follered rue back, the meetln can't
foller Jonas. I appeal to the referee."
"I shall have to overrule the objec
tion." said the deacon. 4'We follered
Ebenezer back, and we must give Jo
nas Jest as good a show. If he's got
anything new about Julius Caesar, we'd
like to hear It."
"When Ctesar waa a young man of
22, he hadn't a dollar to Ms name."
continued Jonas, "and. though he of
fered to dig out stumps fur 15 cents a
day, he couldn't hit a job. He had
made up his mind to hang himself
when he found a stray mewl In the
woods. He knew he ought to advertise
the mewl and restore him to his owner,
but dishonesty carried the day. He
sold the critter to the first man who
would buy, and with the $12 he re
ceived he went Into politics and pushed
along until be finally became one of the
greatest men of his time. He lived
fur 30 years after stealin that mewl,
and he was honored and respected
and had a good time and died lamented
by all." '
"That's a tally mark on the negative
side," said the deacon, "and the p'ints
seem to be about even."
"But whar did Jonas git his facts?"
"Whar did you git yours?" asked Jo
nas in reply.
The deacon sakl the speakln had best
continue, and he called upon Aaron
Bradshaw, who was on the affirmative
side, fur his argymcnt
"Foller me back to the days of Julius
.Csesar," began Aaron, with a wave of
bis hand, but when he had got that fur
both Ebenezer and Jonas tried to yell
him down arid nppeal to the referee.
"I've got to give Aaron a fair show."
replied the deacon. "If he wants t e
follered back to the days of Jul: us
Caesar, this society bus got to tag along
behind him. It's rnthir a cur'us coin
cidence that the three of you want to
be follered back to the same man. but
that's none of my business. Go on,
Aaron went on. He bad it that Cae
sar was poor and out of a Job and dis
couraged when he happened to find a
diamond ring in a mudhoie. He could
have got an advance of $30 on it at a
pawnbroker's, but he actually went
hungry fur three days while huntln up
the loser. Struck by such a display of
unselfish honesty, the owner presented
him with $75, took him under bis wing
and in time made him king."
"That's another tally fur the affirma
tive," said the deacon, "and I guess
I'll give Aaron the same number of
p'ints as the rest. Alvin Bidwell, of
the negatives, is httchin around in an
anxious way, and we'll hear what he's
got to say in favor of dishonesty."
"Foller me back to the days of Julius
Caesar," began Alvin In his ramblin
voice, but thar was yells and whoops
and protests from Ebenezer, Jonas and
"It's a cur'us coincidence, I'll admit,"
said the deacon when he could be
heard, "but 1 don't see how we kin
help but foller Alvin back if he Insists
upon it Everybody must have a fair
show. Alvin, hadn't you as lief be fol
lered back to the garden of Eden or
Dan! in the lions' den?"
. Alvin stuck fur Julius Csesar and
went ahead. He found Julius poor and
discouraged and livln on turnips, and
he related how the young man sat
down and thought It all acer and then
decided to steal a hog. He stole one,
sold him for $3, donbjed his money on
a Boss race ana finally .tnhde a place i
and name for hiiust ir. Had he con- i
tlnued to be honest he would have
starved to death and been burled at the
expense of the town. His dishonesty
enabled him to become king and to do
good to millions.
"The tallies are even so fur." said the
deacon as Alvin sat down". ".: ad wo'll
now hear from Phlletus Johnson on the
"Foller me hack to the dnys of Julius
Caesar," began Puik'ius as he rose up,
and then thar was a row. , It was a
full ten minits before order was re
stored, and durin that time most ev
erybody got his head punched at least
once and his coat torn up the back.
By and by Deacon Spooner said:
"It's a shame and a disgrace,, to the
town of Jericho to carry on in this
way. I notice that I-Jslv Billings, who
dont belong on either side, has Jest

Then Lish moved softly down stairs
and went home, and after the rest of
the crowd had sat and looked at each
other fur two or three minits in an
uncomfortable way the president put
on his hat and said:
