By the ruling of Speaker Champ
Clark that the amendment was out of
order, a second effort to deny liquor
advertisements the privileges of the
mail in dry districts was defeated. The
House also defeated the amendment
taking fourth-class postmasters and
first and second-class assistants off the
civil service list.
The "drys" scored in the first round
of the contested local option election at
Somerset when the Board of Contest,
consisting of County Judge R. C. Tar
tar and two magistrates. Charles Colyer
and Frank Crabel sustained the legality
of the election. The liquor people will
appeal from the decision of the Contest
Board to circuit court which convenes
the first Monday in February, and the
case will, no doubt, be fought through
all the courts and the Court of Appeals.
The Cost to Kill And The
Cost to Save.
The President of Leland Stanford
University, Dr. David Starr Jordan,
figures from statistics that in recent
wars it has cost about $15,000 to kill a
man, while in the Boer War the cost
was nearly $10,000.- Counting the mon
ey expended during hostilities and that
paid in pensions since the war the cost
of killing each Confederate soldier must
have been even greater than that. War
is hell, aententiously remarked a noted
general. It is not only that but the
most expensive method of settling na
tional disputes which in this enlighten
ed time should be by arbitration.
On the other hand the Commissioner
of the Equitable Life Insurance Com
pany finds that preventable deaths in
the United Sta'es alone cause an eco
nomic loss of a billion and half dollars a
year when proper hygienic and'sanitary
provisions would not cost anywhere
near so much. The result of such ef
forts in Panama has demonstrated that
"the pest hole of the tropics," as it was
known, has been transformed into one
of the healthiest, and the cost of main
taining the sanitary conditions which
have made the change is only $2 43 per
capita. This proves that it is cheaper
to save life than to destroy it and civil
ized nations, to say the least, show a
lack of perspective, savs the Journal of
the American Medical Association,
when they continue to destroy life at
high cost and fail to save it at low cost
when a combination ot knowledge with
a little national energy and internation
al co-operation will lead the way to
humane economics W. P. Walton in
As executor of W. E. Amon, I will on
Tuesday, February 4th, offer for sale a
fine Blue Grass Farm of 210 acres, well
improved and in a high state of cultiva
tion. This farm is in Uarrard county
near Bryants il'.e, on the Lancaster
and Lexington turnpike, being 7 1-2
miles from Lancaster or Danville.

Three Billion Dollars.
Such a sum is hardly conceivable by
the ordinary country citizen, yet it is
what automobiles are costing this coun
try every year, so one who has investi
gated tells us. This is almost tea times
the cost of the Panama Canal and three
times as much as the annual expenses
of the government. It would be far
more appalling if this stupendous sum,
or a great portion of it, went to other
countries, but il does not. Most of it
remains right here at home, and is paid
out for material, salaries, labor and
gasoline. The United States now ex
ports many more machines than it im
ports and this big foreign trade is
increasing rapidly. When one contem
plates this huge expenditure it gives
some idea of the richness and prosperity
of our people. The only trouble is that
many buy automobiles who can not
afford It and it sets the bad example of
Good Prices Rule.
At the sale of the effects of the late
Miss Maggie McCord Wednesday a big
crowd was present and satisfactory
prices ruled. " An aged horse sold for
$126, hogs $15 to $30, sheep $6, cows
$55 to $75, turkey hens $3.30, chickens
$10.25 per dozen. They were of the
Plymouth Rock variety. Shoulders
sold at 11c and hams and side meat at
10 cents. Household and kitchen furni
ture sold for almost what they cost.
Mr. John W. Shearer auctioneered the
sale and did so most satisfactorily.
Bought a Farm in Clark.
Messrs. Parker and Curtis Adams, ef
this county, have bought a good farm
within half a mile of Winchester and
will get possession March 1st. Mr.
Curtis Adams and his sister, Miss Lucy
Adams, will move over and take charge
of the place. Mr. Adams is a great
believer in Madison county, but is of
the opinion that Winchester is a future
great and wants to get in there on the
ground floor. The many friends of Mr.
Adams and Miss Adems will give them
up with sincere regret.
Mr. Bible From Christian.
We note that Mr. Bible, of Christian
county, has announced as a candidate
for the Legislature. And if there is
anything in names surely Mr. Bible, of
Christian county, is the proper kind of
an individual to bold a seat in the Leg
islature, if there is any possibility of
leavening the whole of that body.
More Bibles and more Christian coun
ties should find places in legislatures.

far as the cattle trade was concerned.
A good number were on the market
