The Courier-Journal calls attention
to the fact that only 2.D0G diamonds
are Hated for taxation In the entire
State of Kentucky, which goes to
show that as It Is In Elkton, so Is It
everywhere elso: A bunch of kid
gloves better-than-thous, who busy
theselvea setting up and preaching a
standard of righteousness for other
people, deliberately swear a lie when
the assessor comes around, and are
therefore no more honest than the
ordinary defaulter who steals the pub
lic money. Todd County Times.

An old man who Is dying In a cur
tain poor house in Mixraurl.used to
have a great reputation for a sport.
He lost enough money one night In
a poker game, they say, to keep him
In comfort nil his life Hut It does
no pood to call the attention of the
young sports to the old brokon down
has-been articles. They say they
know tholr business and know when
to quit. That's what the old wrecked
spotts said, but they didn't quit until
It was too late. Forty years from
now the wrecks on the streets and
at the poor farm will be those who
are known today as young sports.
