REJECTS HIGHWAY LOANS
County Advancement Not to Be
Accepted (or Local Aid,
, Board Decides
Frankfort, Ky., March 18. No ad
vancements in the form of loans by
counties for construction of State
highway system projects will be ac
cepted, the State Highway Commis
sion decided after conferring with
Attorney General Charles I. Dawson,
who explained to the commissioners
the opinion of the Court of Appeals
In the Hopkins County case.
In that the court held that such an
advancement Is a debt within the
meaning of the Constitution, and the
department is limited to the estimat
ed annual Income for the current
Hopkins County was offering to
lend the department f 150,000 of Its
bond Imttfi for construction of the
Dixie Be Line through the county.
The court said it could, as the State
was not obligated at the time beyond
its current road revenues.
Since there are enough counties
ready to niRch dollar for dollar with
the State in Federal aid projects to
keep the State road fund eraployd,
the commission was of the opinion
that the better policy is to decline all
The question whether counties may
contribute their bond issues to the
State for use on Federal aid projects
will be decided shortly by Judge
Thomas, who has before him the suit
of County Attorney Thompson of
Lawrence County to enjoin the Fia
cal Court from thus contributing
1150,000 toward the Mayo Trail. Mr.
Thompson and a delegation from
Lawrence and Johnson were before
the commission urging a change in
the route designated in Lawrence
County, but the commission deferred
action until after the suit is decid
ed, as the route of the Mayo Trail
would be a mooted question It the
court should say the money could not
be used for it.
The Flat Fork route of the Mid
land Trail through Carter County
was adopted by the commission. Ri
valry between advocates of that route
and the one along the Chesapeake &
Ohio was thrashed out before the
commission. Engineers were of the
opinion that the Flat Fork route
would -save 8100,000 In construction

my eyes and my kidneys didn't act
right. Mornings I got up feeling
tired aud worn out. I learned of
Doan's Kidney Pills through the
newspapers and started their use.
This remedy did me a lot of good
and I consider it excellent." (State
ment given November 18. 1818.)
On January 25, 1921, Miss Park
said: "It Is not often I feel the need
of Doan's' Kidney Pills since I pub
licly endorsed them in 1818. When
I do have a little trouble with my
kidneys, a few Doan'a never fall to
promptly cure me. I am glad at any
time to tell others about Doan's." .
