ing, confessed ho killed William
Howard, proprietor of the 'Last
Chance,' restaurant and former chief
of police in a raid of alleged 'speak
oasies' this afternoon and narrowly
escaped lynching at that time. When

had died passed over tho city at 9
o'clock tonight, tho fury of the mob
took definite form. Largo batter
ing rams were directed upon the
doors of tho Licking county jail, and
tho deputlos woro powerless; Tho
doors fell after nearly an hour's at

curly-headed Kentuckian, who had
been serving as a strike-breaker sinco
ho was released from marine service
threo months ago. was dragged forth.
'I didn't mean to do it,' he wailed.
His cries fell upon deaf ears. Fear

General Weybrecht for troops to pro
tect six other 'dry' raiders held at
the city prison in another section of
the town. A hurried guard was
thrown out in their defense. Tho
mob, after the first taste of blood,
seemed to be quiet, but it was feared
that they might storm the city prison
before the night was finished. Eth
erton's last moments, while ho heard
the mob battering down the doors,
were spent in praying and writing
a note to his parents, farmers resid
ing near Willisburg, Ky. 'What will
mother say when she hears of this?'
he kept moaning to the jailer."

In the government suit before the

the flour was adulterated and mis
branded. An Associated Press dis
patch from Kansas City says: "Mil
lers say that the bleached flour de
cisions will handicap the farmers of
the southwest to the extent of from
fifteen to eighteen million dollars a
year. They say the old differential
of 5 cents a bushel, in vogue in Chi
cago and St. Louis markets five years
ago beforo bloached flour camo in,
will soon appear again. Thoy furth
er say that farmers of Missouri, Kan
sas, Oklahoma and Nebraska will loso
five cents a bushel on their present
crop and that hard winter wheat
soon will be selling at 25 cents a
bushel less than at present. Already
millers are considering tho establish
ment of bleaching stations In states
where the uso of bleached flour is
not prohibited. Thus they say thoy
may avoid tho interstate commorco
law. Big mills whoso product is

flour is illegal may ship their un
bleached into the states whore tho
sale of it is permitted, unload it at
theso bleaching stations, bleach it
and distribute it In tho stnto."

THE LORD OF LITTLE CHILDREN
The Lord of Little Children to tho
sleeping mothers spake:
"Lo, the dreaming time is over, yo
the hand of Life must take;"
And the dawn was in our faces as
we staTtled up awake,
On Liberty's great day.
We have heard the babes that called
us from the whirr of wheel and
In a world of sun and meadows cry
ing for a little room,
Ere their blood ran to the coffers,
ere their labor made their tomb;
And we arise and go.
We have heard our sister weeping
for tho child that must not live,
For the hands that may not tend it,
for the milk she may not give;
We have seen her kneel in anguish
and the bitter blow receive,
And we arise and go.
Over law unblessed, unsanctioned by
a mother's holy name,
Law that gives the child to bondage
and the woman unto shame,
See the star of justice rising with a
dread, consuming flame!
'Tis bringing in His day,
Oliver Tllford Dargan.
