In the mills where men are ground
You have turned yourself a name;
With the many, fortune bound,
You have won success and fame.
All that growing wealth Insures,
All that fame can give, Is yours!
You have seen your dreams come
castles pierce the sky
To the azure realms of blue
Where celestial glories lie.
You have won a queenly mate
And have hobnobbed with the great!
But, withal your lordly crew,
All your worldly fame and lore,
Have you won the Joy you knew
In the barefoot days of yoreT'
Have you felt the perfect Joy
Of a tousle-headed boy?
In your victories, forsooth,
Has theTe come thattlngllng thrill
Felt, when In the days of youth,
You went fishing at the mill
And came home at night, by Jtng,
With six shiners on your string?

W. M. Mayo Drowned.
Sheriff Kastetwood received the
following letter this week from John
Pittman. a citizen of ' Railal
Mississippi, reporting the death by
drowning oi w. m.. Mayo, a former
deputy sheriff, of No. 5 District,
and who was for several weeks held
under military survellance. as a
night-rider suspect. The following
is a copy oltne letter:
To the Sheriff of Obion Countv.
There was a man drowsed in the
river 10 miles below here. He
said he was from Obion county, said
his name was W. M. Mayo and that
he bad been sheriff and bad a fam
ily up there, I thought I would
write you so you could send his folks
word if knew him. He was here
trying to rent a place, was 49 or SO
years oia, neavy set. He stayed all
night with me and started to cross
the river and got too near a suck in a
drift and he could not pull out.' His
boat turned over and the current
sucked him under the drift." Troy
Word About Cottonseed Meal.
It seems that a large per cent of
our farmers have yet to learn the
value of cottonseed meal as a feed
for stock. From the standpoint of
economy, it can nardly be over-esti
mated. The writer spent a number
ot years in one ot the greatest corn
producing sections of the U. S.,
where live stock is the Drincinal in-
dustry ; and while that is 400 miles
from the nearest cottonseed mill,
they feed cotton meal largely in
lieu of corn, shipping the latter and
importing the meal. If shipping
tneir corn away and paying freight
on meal that distance is economy,
then it ought to be a much greater
saving in this vicinity where corn
is worth more and meal less in dol
lars and cents. The Richmond &
Bond Co. is offering, some special
price inducements now in order to
get our farmers to using the meal.

"The hoc is a machine that oils

market on Its back, Corn, barley,
oats, grass, tape, clover or any of
the by-products of these, loaned to a
weii-orea, tnrmy nog, is money at
bier interest. In fact, it is a mint.
The grain and grasses are bullion,
which, put into the hog, Is trans

mint and gives sixteen ounces

That Good Roads Amendment.
Not only Fullon county, but al
most the entire state of Kentucky is
greatly In need of better roads.
The Bosworth-Wyatt Good Road
Amendment to the Constitution ot
Kentucky, which passed the last
Kentucky Legislature by Its almost
unanimous vote, nnd which is to be
voted on at the next November Gen
eral Election of 1909, by the voters
of Kentucky, is as follows, to-wits
'The credit of the Commonwealth
may be given, pledged or loaned to
any county of the Commonwealth for
public roads purposes and any coun
ty may be permitted to incur nn In
debtedness in any amount Axed by
the county, not in excess of five per
centum of the value of the taxable
property therein, for public road
purposes in said county, provided
said additional indebtedness is sub
mitted to the voters of the courtly
for their ratification of rejection at
a special election held for said pur
pose, in such manner as may bt
provided by law, and when any such
indebetdness is incurred by any
county, said county may levy, In
addition to the tax rate allowed un
der'section 157 of the Constitution
of Kentucky, an amount not exceed
ing twenty cents on the hundred
dollars of the assessed valuation of
said county for the purpose of pay
ing the interest on said indebtedness
and providing a sinking, fund for the
payment of said indebtedness.''
Section 177 of the Constitution of
Kentucky forever prohibits the state
from lending Its aid to, or in any
way helping the counties in road
building, or taking any part what
ever in behalf of the cause of Good
Section 158 of our state constitu
tion limits the power of any county
to become indebted more than two
per cent of the assessed valuation,
thus making it impossible for the
great number of our counties to raise
sufficent funds to do any road build
ing at all.
Section 157 of our state constitu
tion provides that a county cannot
levy exceeding fifty cents on each
One Hundred Dollars of taxable
property therein for any purpose
whatever, thus making it impossible
tor many of the counties to provide
sufficent means tocreate a sinking fund
and pay interest on the debt created
to build roads.
As a consequence of these limita
tions and restrictions of the power
of the counties and also the Com-

monwealth of Kentucky has been a
thing of the past since the adoption
of our present constitution.
This Constitution Amendment will
remove these restrictions, which are
a barrier to the passage of such a
system of road Laws by our Legis
lature as it will enable our counties
and our state, and perhaps our Fed
eral Government to join hands In this
Important work of building and
maintaining a system of improved
highways io all parts of Kentucky,
the accomplishment of which would
do so much for the advancement and,
progress and development of Ken
tucky, and would mean more than
all else for the comfort, convenience
and improved condition of all our
people. If this Constitutional
Amendment receives a majority of
the votes at that election, it will
then be possible for Kentucky to
pass such a system of Good Road
Laws as are in effect In the states of
New York, New Jersey, Connecticut,
Michigan, Massachusetts, California
and Pennsylvania, and in fact every
other state where progess and ad
vancement is being mide in building
and maintaining good roads, while
our own Kentucky is at a standstill.
If you are in favor of gtcd roads,
vote and work for the Bosworth
Wyatt Good Road Constitutional
Amendment and lend a helping hand
in making it possible for Fallon coun
