Fifty little jobs, each with a fair profit, are worth
more to you than one big job, even tho the price
r.runs into four figures, on which you do not make
any profit, or a very small one. It is the profit that
counts, not the size of the job. Master Printer.
The national government's offer of $25,000 000
for good roads in states that will agree to spend as
much for such improvements, should not fail to
meet a responsive endorsement from the Kentucky
legislature. Legislation at Frankfort should fol
low that will insure Kentucky as' largo a portion
'of this national fund as possible. In North Car
olina, where the road work is being advanced re
markably, there will be received from the federal
fund $754,000 from this $2r,000,000 appropriation.
What wonders could be done on Kentucky roads
by such an expenditure under competent engineers
which the government at Washington demands.
The present session of the legislature is fleeting.
There will not be another for two years. Prompt
action is necessary. Owensboro Messenger.
DON'T OWE MAYO, HOWEVER.
A bill has been introduced at Frankfort to create
a new county and name it for John C. O. Mayo.
There's no telling how much Kentucky Mayo before
this Legislature gets through with us. Elizabeth
This U ft ttipsy-ttU'Yy world. One wan la aYliB
to build a house and another Is trying to sell his
for less than it cost. One man is spending all the
money he can make in taking a girl to an entertain
ment and sending her flowers in the hopes, event
ually, to make her his wife, while his neighbor is
spending the gold he has to get a divorce. One
man escapes all the diseases man is heir to and gets
killed on the railroad. Another goes without being
hurt and dies with whooping cough. Such is life.
A bill to revive boxing in Kentucky has been in
troduced in the Legislature. By all means pass it.
Then appoint a commission of half dozen politicians
at salaries of about $2,500 a year to look after the
bouts. Such a move would be in keeping with
many other fool laws passed in recent years.
WHAT WOULD A MAN DO?
An exchange says: "Men should rcmoinber that
a woman can't always be smiling who has to cook
dinner, answer tho door bell half a dozen times, and
get rid of a neighbor who has dropped in, attend
to a sick baby, tie up the cut of a two-year-old.
gather up the playthings of a four-year-old, tic
up the feet of a six-year-old on skates and get an
eight-year-old ready for school, to say nothing of
sweeping, cleaning, etc. A woman with all this to
contend with may claim it as a privilege to look
and feel a little tired sometimes, and a word of
sympathy would not be too much to expect from a
man who, during the honeymoon, wouldn't let her
carry so much as a sunshade."
THE TEMPERANCE MOVEMENT AND
THE INCREASED LIQUOR CONSUMPTION
"When the history of legislation among the sev
eral States for the past decade comes to be written,
statutes providing for the diminution of the sale
of liquors will occupy a prominent place. Every
State in the Union has passed some form of prohi
bition or local option legislation.
Like, many other movements thai we regard as
local, governmental and individual action against
the liquor traffic has been world-wide. Local op
tion is in operation in Sweden and Norway. In tho
parliament of the former country 150 of :Jr3 mem
bers are "aggressive total abstainers." Temperance
legislation has been enacted in Holland. In Ger
many, where amid ridicule the first total abstainer
was discovered in 1893, the "Good Templars," a
temperance organization, reported an accession of
100,000 members in 1912. It is an interesting fact
that the temperance question hardly exists in a
country like Bulgaria. Because of the abstinence
of its Mohammedan population, the per capita con
sumption of liquors in Bulgaria is one-eighth of
that of German'.
But the riddle of tho consumption of liquors is
inscrutable to the mere observer. In the ten years,
from 1902 to 1912, more temperance legislation
was enacted in the United States than in any pre
vious decade. In that time the consumption of dis
tilled spirits increased .32,000,000 gallons; the con
sumption of wines increased G.500,000 gallons, and
the consumption of malt liquors increased 550.
000,000 gallons. In other words, the total con
sumption of liquors increased 35 per cent, while our
population increased 20 per cent. Perhaps we shall
some day receive a dispassionate explanation of
these inexorable and very interesting statistics.

DAYS OF DIZZINESS
: Saved Girl's life I
"I want lo tell you what wonderful benefit I have re
ceived from the use of Thedford's Black-Draught," writes
Mrs. Sylvanla Woods, of Clifton Mills, Ky.
"It certainly has no equal for la grippe, bad colds,
liver and stomach troubles. I firmly believe Black-Draught
saved my little girl's life. When she had the measles,
they went in on her, but one good dose of Thedford's
Black-Draught made them break out, and she has had no
more trouble. I shall never be without
in my home." For constipation, indigestion, headache, dizzi
ness, malaria, chills and fever, biliousness, and all similar
ailments, Thedford's Black-Draught has proved Itself a safe,
reliable, gentle and valuable remedy.
If you suffer from any of these complaints, try Black
Draught. It is a medicine of known merit Seventy-five
years of splendid success proves its value. Qood for
young and old. For sale everywhere. Price 25 cents.
