I t _ \ \ o u l a be nearer the mark to say that both I^lncaia and Bupitt are the outgrowth or the coal and power de\elopment scheme which acquired the Pawnee railroad and extended it to Tailorville.

If Klncaid has the growth that la promised the two towns will sonn become one. There IB another town in the same group that Is called JersyUlle, where another ol the Peabody mines Is located. NO RECORD MADE. A etory is told in Taylorville of how Bul- pltt became wet. Bulpltt Is in South. Eork township, as are Kincaid and Jersyvllle. The town was recently Incorporated and has three aldermen. Six years ago South Fork t o w n s h i p voted dry, but It Is said that no record 1 was mado of the election SI* years ago there was no thought that the township would ever be anything but dry A tew weeks ago the corporation of Bul- nitt held an election upon t h e wet and dry Issue and voted wet. Each of the aldermen voted himself a license and opened a sa- loonT The thirsty flocked to the saloons and the aldermen are waxing rich. LEOAL ACTION STARTED. Of course, If South Fork township had previously voted dry Bulpltt, being a part of the township, could not, u n d e r t h e law. become wet and legal action has been begun In Taylorville to d r h e out the saloons. The right of existence of the saloons hingea upon the legality of the township eXction held S °It'la said that' no record of tills election, can ba found. If it i« shown that an Jlec'l?" was legally held at that time and that the action of the %oters of the township has not been reversed by a subsequent election, Bul- pltt will h « \ r t o become dry. COLLEGE STUDENTS HUNT FARM JOBS Washington, July 4.--Seventy-five per cen 1 of the men who answered the call for the western harvest fields were of "the army of the unemployed." 15 per cent were college student* and the balance were Immigrants according to the rough estimate made by de- partnme kcnodn swaZibofw tiwo4e(-nraa men" of labor officials. Approximately 100,000 men have obtained employment «« harvest han4» In the middle western state* "It was claimed that the murderer drove away from the scene of the homicide in a bugg-y drawn by a team of horses. Evidence was introduced that a blood hound was put on the trail some thirty hours later and carried the trail until it ended in accused's stable, where the blood h o u n d picked out the particular horse he had been trailing 'The court said, 'Evidence of the trailing of an animal by a blood hound, so far as we are advised, has never been admitted by any court or sanctioned by any standard legal author- ty in this or ans* other country. Furthermore we have reached the conclusion that testimony as to the trailing of either a man or an animal by a blood hound should never be admitted in evidence In any case. A blood bound may be used to track down a known fugitive from Justice. If the dog-, in fact, takes up and follows the trail of a known fugitive and finds him, or aids his pursuers to f i n d him there can be no mistake as to whether or not he is the party sought. " 'His guilt or innocence of a given criem .however, should be established by other evidence. Neither court nor jury can have any means of knowing why the dog: does this thing- or another in following one direction instead of another; that must be left to his instinct, without knowing upon what it in based. The information obtainable on this subject, scientific, legal or otherwise. Is not of euch a character as to f u r n i s h any satisfactory basis or reason for the admission of this class of evidence. We agree f u l l y with the statement In Brett vs. State, 70 Neb, 395, 97 X. TV. 593, 63 L. R. A. 787, that the 'conclusions of the blood hound are generally too u n r e l i able to be accepted as evidence in either civil or criminal cases.' " TWO ESCAPE~FROM BLOOMINGTON JAIL Bloomington.
