The lights of Paris ever serving as a beacon light From the evidence taken It is oeuevea that Horton was attempting to repair his telephone and in doing so came in contact with the uninsulated wire which was running into his house about three feet from the ground. It was at first thought that the telephone wire that Horton was repairing came in contact with a heavily charged electric light wire. This theory, however, was shown to be false by the testimony of a lineman, who eaid the day after the accident he traced the telephone wire for several blocks and could find no section of it coming in contact with the electric wire. The jury gave the following verdict In the case: "We find that Horace A. Horton's death was caused by a shock of electricity accidentally received by the deceased from coming Into contact with an overcharged naked telephone wire of the Sunset Telephone Company, which entered his house dangerously close to the ground, and it is the opinion of the jury that had said company not run such wires so near the ground said accident would no.t have occurred and said company is- responsible for the death."

"The murmers of discontent against the established order of things became great privileges which, while they benefited the classes were prejudicial to the masses. "But extensive territory acquired by power of force and armed soldiery was not easily governed" or retained under the conditions prevailing in France and with the passing of time, came changes which materially affected the government of France.

RIGHTS OF MAN. Mil IMl love of their fellowmen 'and not in storm or prejudice the still voice that speaks to the conscience may liberty be preserved and flourish throughout the land, protecting all who live within the limits of the republic regardless, of color, race or religion. May the silken sheen of a glorious France never be shadowed by oppression, arrogance, or infringement upon the rights of man, but let her move onward and upward, ever cheered by the example of the "United States of America, the harbinger of the weak and oppressed, taking from the past the griefs that furrow memory and realizing at every step the blessing of a perfect and exalted freedom." GOT STONE FOR BREAD. "The people asked for bread and were given stone. The genius of industry and thrift was discouraged amidst great and open poverty.

While the rich grew richer, the poor became poorer. The material condition of the people, smarting under most exhorbitant exactions in the guise of taxes, was extremely miserable and fast becoming unbearable. During the year preceding the fall of the Bastile. three thousand four hundred persons were imprisoned for failure to pay taxes on salt, while, at the same time, the poor peasants poured the wine of their vinyards into the river because of inability to pay the tax levied upon them therefor.

LESSON OF LIBERTYV "It Is proper that, wherever or whenever, the children of men are released from unjust governmental bondage or iniquitous imposition that their free spirits unite in joyous exultation in honor of the victory and that they, in in common assembly, commeorate the passing of tyranny, holding up their children and to the world the lessons of their experience in the hands of those who may chance to possess it as a heritage.

MISGOVERNMENT. "You assemble here, today, to celebrate the fall of the Bastile. More than a century has passed over the people of France since that memorable event of the fourteenth day of. July. 1789.

Through this great stretch of time, however, may still be viewed the reasons for its fall. That ancient castle stood a monument to an Ignoble government, a menace to a poor oppressed people, an enemy to the promptings of liberty then awakening in the hearts of the populace and the men of Paris determined that it should be leveled to the ground though, with its fall, would tumble a weak and despised monarchy. For many years preceding the revolution, the people of France were the victims of misgovernment, a government that recognized class distinctions and gave to those wbo basked in the light of the throne, and those who belonged to the orders of nobility Kidney $40.50 net $36.50 net $32.50 net $28.50 net $50.00 $45 $40.00 $35.
