I do not happen to have any-thing on my

join your "xJorae Coming" preposition by
writing you a few lines, which will no doubt
be as interesting to my-self as any one else,
for 1 know a letter from me wonld be al

Honestly wc have been looking for you to

While speaking of news papers I might
say a word foronrTnlna papers. We have

Tulsa is a great place. The people eua
hardly find a house to live in and have to
she an automobile garage or something
like that, and some of these garages don't
have any heat in ihetn except gas and no
light except electricity; an awful place to
live of course. But without joking, when
wife and 1 went out to look for a house !
every thing was .so high we decided to just
make out with oce room, so we rented the
room and within a few weeks we decided
the rent was more than wc could afford, so
-6 put a partition in the room and sub-
rested one half of it to another family and
we stood it very well until the other family !
began to take in boarders.

Dear Editor and old friends:
Since I can not see you, I am glad we
i may hear from each other throucl. the
"Home Comine" issue of the Herald.
I Ht Hazel Green in April 1900 and
have;visited that place four times since. :

I happy in my home in the good little;
town in the corn belt of Illinois.I long to
see my childhood home and the dear
mces ot my menus tncre. ;
My husband farms and follows the1
: carpenter's trade. Troy my only child
is eleven years old and in the fifth
grade at school. He is a lively hearted
boy who never lets ono get lonesome.

To The Teople of The Ninth
I want to congratulate the peo
ple of the Ninth Congressional
District on their selectiou of a
Congressman, I have just spent
week at the Capitol, and while
there I had a good opportunity tc:
observe Congressmen and their re
cords and methods, not only Ken
tucky's Congressmen but those
from the various States.
Congressman Fields is a states
man that looms large in affairs
at the Capitol. He has a record
for industry, and for high and
I noble character that is unBumaBS
ed in the record of any Congress-
man. It is surprising to know
that a man as busy as Con cress-
man Fields, could give his person
al attention to evory letter from
his constituents, but this is what
Congressman Field does. He
seems to have as much considera
tion for his constituents as if they
were face to face with him. Con
v - o
gressman Fields' ability as mem.
ber of one of the most important
committees of the House, is rec
ognized by the statesmen of the
Country. He is the ranking mem
ber of the Committee on Military
Affairs and is considered as an
authoritive on this important sub
Congressman Fields is never too
busy to stop and help somebody.
He has a way of making the most
timid feel perfectly at ease when
in his presence, and when he mak
es a friend he has a way of keep
ing him, I beliove that the inter
ests of the people of the Ninth
District are in safe haudsas long
as they are in the hands of W. J.

Mm. Parker and coma-maky is about
one half natives cf Wolfe and Morgan
counties, Ky, or their descendants,
many of. them are well to do farmers
ad business men. Parker has three
churches, a $5,000 city hall, electric
lights, cement sidewalks, two banks,
three general merchandise, two hard
ware, two drug stores, besides a number
of other enterprises. There is a good

Powell Henry of Morgan is able to get

years before Mr. Henry is still living
and can get out sometimes. Enoch

moved to Oklahoma about one year nco,
the reports are that they are doing well,
Mort Pieratt a brother of Attorney A. C.
Pieratt of Hazel Green is still living
near here and they are all well, and
doing well. As for myself I live in one
mile of Parker. I am fanning and
dairying as a side line but I find that
the side line iives better returns for the
come, butter fat is now 37 "cents per
pound, a good cow will pay for herself
in one year if properly cared for. I also
find by having a cream seperator that
there is from 25 per cent to 50 per ceut
more profit or a gain of that much over
the hand skimming method and mur
than that in hot weather if you haven't
a cave or cellar.
I have noticed reports in The Herald
about the bad weather and bad roads in
Kentucky. We haye had here without
n doubt the. finest winter I ever saw.
We have bad very little snow or rain.
There has not been a day but what autor
mobiles ould run and only two or three
days that they had lo use chains. We
have fine roads here anyway. They are
well graded and then kept drug with
the ordinary road drag. They are not
only drug ater a rain, but after a snow.
They reverse the drag and drag the snow
into the ditches where it melts and ruut
off and leaves the roads solid.
joining Parker is the 2nd largest apple, j
j peach and cherry orchard in the State,
at one time it consisted of 2,000 acre
but is not quite so large now. The
owner in 1915 claimed a net profit of
$30,000, one year before that they shij
ped t5 car loads of No 1 and No. 2 ap
ples and peaches besides thousands of
bushels of No. 25 and culls sold here.
They also make several thousand gallons
of vinegar each year from the small and
cull apples. My mother makes her home
with me, she was sick during the mouth
of January but is now well and sets
about quite well for r lady of her age,
she attends church regular in the sum
mer and quite often in winter. I have
two children, (both boys) the eldest will

LaYoane Kash and myself made a ihort
visit to Kentucky last fall, so many of

tura home without seeing them, al
though my aim was for LaVonae to see
her grandmother Kash and her falherV
nearest people, and I was glad to tee her
and so many of my own dear people.
When I arrived at Mt, Sterling I felt
that I was back among old friends am
relatives in Ezel, so many had moved
from there to Mt. Sterling. Mrs. Cha..

live in the city, you may always count
on JL.17.zift and Charles, lhey are true

Johnnie's and find him not there.
was very proud of his dear sweet chil

gone, only two uncles left. S. S. Dennis
my mother's brother and Silas Pieratt
my father s hiother both of whom were
in very bad health. Shortly after my
return home I received news of bro

He passed Trom earth to the "sweet be

loved ones and dear friends in the sweet
bye and bye, where parting and sorrows
are no more. I had been away from
Kentucky seventeen years, have lived in
Bates county, Missouri, all except one
year which 1 spent in California. I
have a family, my husband and three
children, my little daughter LaVonne
Kash, two sons, Orvin aud William

and bought one of JG() aens three miles

this what I think of Bates county. We
have a fine country, good roads and can

Mr James I. Hollon.
Editor Hazel Green Herald.
Hazel Green, Ky. ,
Dear James: Noting your request rel-t
ative to making the Herald one of pelg;
tonal letters from those living at a difg '
tance. I take the opportunity extended
and will try to give to the many readers. :
ashoit sketch from this place, and in a
brief way give them a little ins ht into
the stejel industry at this plaee vhich I
hope you will be able to find spnee for
in your paper. But before entering into
that this leaves my, family and myseKt
enjoying good health, and the same will
apply to all the rest of the Kentucky
boys at this place. There is quite a num
ber of dear old Kentucky boys here at
present and quite a number have just
left for home. Among those hem at
present are:- Hiram Watson, Strong
Hatton, W. H. Wages, Porter and John
Pence, Bruce and Lindsay McGuire, J.
W. Burcham and son, Millard, Richard
Hurst and John Taulbee, all of whom
have good jobs and seem to be well sat
isfied. Among tho&tf who recently left here
were: Oscar Pence, John McPberson;
Bill Tyra, Letcher, Porter and Cass;
Here are congratulations to the Her
ald and to the contestants who did sck
faithfully work for its intereet.
Wc are proud to have the Herald, .
come to Homestead, but there k owe
thing' that we don't like about it, ad
that is, it doesn't reech us until Mo
day and Kometime not uetil Tuesday,
inspectors are among the highest pid
class ot workmen employed in the works.
l WOrk themselves Up Step by Step.
General labor is 27.5 cents per hour and
in other departments wages are higher.
The Carnegie Steel Co., has 38000 me?..
The manufacture of munitioa for tK
war is at present their chief btisinugs,..,
and it is a solemn thought to us when at"
wo k ou the death missels of war. Onu
who nas not had the experience can ever
know just how it effects one when he
knows hp is furnishing the material to
be used In the death struggle. The total
cost exports on munition from here last
year wart 580723.944. Now from three
figures you can get a glimpse of the pert
the steel; industry is doing at this -place.
With kind legards to you and. all Jray
Kentucky friends, I beg to remain,
J. S; Tester
Neosho, Mo., March, 4, 1917.
