of the country.

In this connection President LI
aaid: "Sun Yat Sen once declared
be intended to tour foreign coun
tries ad uoon as constitutional gov
ernment was restored in China.
That object has been attained and
the Unit has come for Sun to start.
If he cannot realize his purpose I
will welcome him to Peking. I see
no reason why he should not sit at
the sunie table with me and discuss
The president declared he had of
ored the premiership to Wu Ting
Fung, but that .he had received no
reply so far.
('anon Iti-giiiic nt End
He asserted thnt China, with the
prospect of the old Republican par
linmeiit convening, has now before
her the greatest opportunity since
the .Republic was founded.
So far as Peking is concerned,
the Canton Government Is at an
end. The fall of the Southern Gov
ernment, according to President Li,
was due to the increasing desire of
Southwest China for unification
nd end of civil strife. The chief
executive said that the provinces of
Szochuun, Hunan, Kweichow, King
s' and Yunnan had been inclined to
reunite with the North but had
beea prevented from carrying out
their purpose by Sun Yat Sen.

To relieve the intense suffering

sisted by her husbund, made an

to such an extent and so thin that
they could see the soy beans
through the skin. Mrs. Mayes had
read In her poultry literature where
similar oporatinoi had been made,
and her husband with a knife made
an Inch and half Incision tn the
rooster's craw. The Jieans, from
the. moisture and warmth of tbe
body, bud swollen so that they had
to be dug out with a knife, and
fr. Mays as he removed them laid
them out in lots of 100 each, and
, to bis utter amazement found the
rooster had swallowed 167. These
beans are about the alia of a small

and this was where the rooster had
gotten t cut. After the operation

with silk thread and then took Ave
stitchea in the outer skin with silk
thread, using Iodine at a disinfect
ant. ' The rooster made no attempt
to struggle during the operation,
seeming so grateful for the relief,
the only' noticeable effect being a
twitching ot his legs whfn they ap

FIGHT LAW FOR

Judge Chas. A. Hardin Expresses
Amazement at the Course of
Republican action to test the new
Registration Law expected to be
Initiated In tbe Franklin Circuit
Court today, was interpreted as
fear of clean elections' by Judge
Chas. A. Hardin, Chairman ot the
Democratic State Central ft Execu
"It Is passing strange," said
Judge Hardin, "that -a duly or
ganized political body would Insti
tute a suit to test a law that seeks
.0 purify elections. The registra
tion law has tor Its "sole purpose
clean elections. It contains no
partisan provisions whatever. It
Imposes exactly the same conditions
on all political parties playlng no
It strikes the Democratic leader
ship that any party which is afraid
of this law must object to clean
I. am amazed that the Republican
party would put Itself on record as
fighting a law designed to bring an
honest election. The only' criticisms
of the law that I have heard were
that it would cause inconvenience
or cost something for its adminis-
tratlon. No one of responsibility
has accused it ot being partisan.
Anyone who reads lt can see that It
can't be used by either organlza
tlon in a selfish way. Any organi
zation which puts itself on record
as opposing electoral machinery
which insures pure elections ' is
doomed to fall:
Under the State-wida registration
law no longer the groups of repeat
ers can be swung fom poll to poll;
from county to county; from State
to State in border counties, to cre
ate artificial and corrupt majori
ties. No longer can the transients
and families who are not entitled to
vote secure the privilege through
corrupt election officers. No long
er can the corruptionist, .by use of
unlimited corruption funds, be ef
fective as under the old law. No
longer can the unnaturalized citi
zen vote in the mining camps of
Kentucky. The registration law is
not for the benefit ot either party
but to bring about clean and pure
elections, ' 1
' In my opinion this law- Is one ot
the most progressive la w;.ver en
acted by the Legislature in our
State. It renders possible the en
actment of all progressive laws
which are concurred In by the ma
jority opinion of the electorate,
and thereby secures i foundation ot
Justice consistent with Democratic

Hay Making Simplified
With Standard Fordson Equipment
You cannot afford to lote time in the hayhg sean.
There are few sections where the weather at haying .
time is always ideal.' . That is the one time of year t
when speed is the essence of good farming. It U no
.", uncommon happening for' some farmers to lose '
several tons of hay by, a delay in getting it off the
. ground. '
This work is now speeded up by using the Fordson
with the Roderick Lean Cutmore Mower. , '.
The CUTMORE is attached direct to the tractor ,
between the front and rear wheels in the position -
where the driver can have perfect control over it.
Thepower is taken from the worm gear that drives
the rear wheels, so it is always even and dependable.
The CUTMORE makes hay cutting with the
Fordson a one-man job. There is ample power for
cutting the heaviest crops, including alfalfa, clover,
vetch, velvet beans, pea hay and lespedeza. -
The cutter bar may be disconnected in a few
minutes, so that the tractor may be used for other
work. The draw bar is always available for pulling
a wagon, rake or other tool.- Attached to your
Fordson, the CUTMORS means greater speed and
econryny of handling your hay crop. v
