was working with the county bridge
crew over near Byron Reed's place

ing a forty penny spike which penetrat
ed most entirely through the fleshy part
of his foot. The nail was'old and rusty
and has caused him much pain, and has
been forced to use crutches for the

took out an accident policy, and this
seems to be his only good luck for the
past few months.

celebrated their sixth birthday anni
versary. The little visitors arrived
about four o'clock in the afternoon and
remained until eight, and it certainly
was four hours of pleasure for all, as
Mr. and Mrs. Shrader had made every
effort to give them a good time. They
took possession of the premises for that
time. The lawn at the east of the resi
dence was neatly arranged for their
pleasure, where the refreshments,
which consisted of ice cream, cake,
candies and fruit were fserved, Miss
Margie Walker assisted Mrs. Shrader
in looking after the wants of the little
folks. One of the little Miss Shrader
is a name sake of Miss Walker and of
course she takes a great deal of inter

tent by the entire population and the
surrounding community of Murray, for
two nicer or sweeter little ladies never
lived than the little twin Miss'Shraderr,
and all who know them seem to take an
interest in their welfare, and are unan
imous in wishing that they may live to
enjoy many more such happyXtimes as
they did at their sixth birthday. They

drafted by the Republican conferree
had received the sanction of the house
and had been presented to the senate,
where it was announced that It would
be taken up for consideration today
and where it will also be passed when

with a continuation of the conference

Upon Him Pepenrts the Time the- Sen
ate Will Take.
The conferen'-e it port was read In
the senate and after the readily had
been concluded Aldrich announced that
today after routine business he would
move to take up the report and con
tinue its consideration until it was dis
posed cf. Interest now attaches to the
probable course of the bill In the son
ate, as also to the length of time that
may lie required for its consideration
by that body. The Democratic sena
tors spent much of the day In informal
conferences among themselves as to
the proper course to pursue with refer
ence to the bill, and decided upon a
conference to le held today as the
best means of affording an opportunity
for an exchange of views without bind
ing any one. It was also decided to
summon all absent Hemocratlc sena
tors to return.
Practically the only point remaining
unsettled is when tho vote will be tak
en. No one doubts that the report will
be adopted and the bill carried. As th?
situation now appears the time of vot
ing and the consequent final adjourn
ment of congress depends largely upon
one man, and that is I.n Toilette. So
far as they have spoken the Democ rats
are inclined to permit final action aft
er comparatively brief consideration.
T.a Toilette refused to outline his
probable course further than to say
that he would vote against the new
bill. He was in consultation with Dem
ocratic leaders at different times dur
ing the day, and his liearing was such
as to lead to the conclusion that if the
Democrats would agree to right the
measure he would assist them.
The opinion was expressed by Aid
rich that the whole bill Is more t'aan
half "faith cure," and that, he added,
"is just what the country needs. The
temper of the senate seems to be bet
ter now than when the senate passed
the bill in the first place. Even Demo
critic senators who are disposed to
vole against the bill are anxious to get
tome, and it may be possible to ad
journ on Friday."
