Climax Now Semi-Weekly.
The Richmond Clinax, always a wel
come visitor, camo to us twice last week,
and as we never gel too much of a good
thing, it is doubly welcome. Ed Wal
ton is a crank about a semi-weekly,
and the splendid paper he is making of
the Climax is not the first proof be has
produced that he can make a success of
a two limes a week paper. He brought
the Interior-Journal of Stanford as a
semi-weekly up to the high standard of
one of the best papers in the state, and
what be bas done once, we believe be
can, do again, anyway if Ed cannot
make a success of it, no one else need
try. Lancaster Record.
Prof. Kinney to Speak Here.
Prof. E. J. Kinney, of the division of
Agronomy, of the State University of
Kentucky, an authority on farm crops

eighth on corn praduction. The talk to

given at 1:30 p. m., in the court house.
Tbis will be the first of a series of
similar lectures to be offered the public
by the local Farmer's Union during the
winter and spring and it is hoped the
public will appreciate the offerings of
belter farming instruction.
Fined For Having Booze In
Bob Garrison, of this city, was fined
8 100 find given ten days in jail by a jury
in Judge Greenleafi court Saturday.
The chargo was his having whisky in
possession for the purpose of sale. He
had eighteen quarts of bottled in bond
goods. Garrison claimed that he was
going to take twejve quarts of the "red
eye" to his mother-in-law at Crab
Orchard. The jury seems to have put
little credence in the mother-in-law
The flour output of Minneapolis dur
ing 1912, totaled 17,031,635 barrels,

the year's output was shipped to for

The Drainman In "The Servant in

A Holding Company.
Mr. Munsey, one of Colonel Roose
velt's leading supporters, suggests a
new party holding party to take
over the Republican and Progressive
parties, as holding companies in the
business world take over and amalga
mate competing concerns. The source
of the suggestion, and the suggestion
itself, is suggestive. Under the regime
of the combined party, holding compan
ies, trust and other inventions of the
money devils, grew and flourished and
Mr, Munsey evidently thinks the sug
gestion will be a taking one with those
who have either encouraged or coun
At present we do not think it possible
for any holding company to hold ihe
rival factions of the late Republican
party. This is as great an assuager of
grief as it is a moderator of passions,
and the effort at reconeiliation may
meet with more response in the futnre,
but at present there is too much ani
mosity between the Republicans and
the so-called Progressives for either to
even consider getting together feasible.
The Republicans charge their inglorius
defeat to the Progressives and what is
left of the old party feels naturally very
bitter toward it. The suggestion, too,
coming from a Roosevelt and makes it
all the more objectionable and the old
line-stand-pat-Republican will take do
stock in any such a holding company,
which, if formed might be subject to
indictment under the Sherman Anti
Trust Law, as it would be a restraint in
trade for the reason that it would put
one less competitor in the field for the
spread on the pie counter.
If the test were to come now and the
members of either the Republican or
the Progressive parties should have to
take their choice between getting to
gether and going over to the Demo
cratic party, we believe that the latter
would profit by the accessions. The
Republican party seems to be done for
and there is absolutely no good reason
that the so-called Progressive party
should survive the disasters and dan
gers the second year of its infantile
career. W. P. Walton in Lexington
Stock Going Up.
The stock of Col. John R. Gibson, ' of
Richmond, who is an applicant for the
Eighth District Internal Revenue Col
lectorship, has gone up considerably In
the 'estimation of the political wise
acres, and he is now regarded by them
as being a decided factor in this inter
esting contest. Col. Gibson is "over
look ing no bets" and is now in Wash
ington "boosting his game" with the
"big wigs" who will have quite a bit
to say about who is appointed Collector
to succeed Winston Wiseman at Dan
ville. Louisville Times.
Stale Department oHlcials expressed
uneasiness over the threats of Argente-
na to declare a' war on trade with the
United States unless the latter withdraws
from the Brazilian flour market,
Famous Calf Case Ended.
The famous "calf case" of Jetmore,
Kan., is ended. Four years ago Pro
bate Judge Barstow bought a calf for
$12. E. Netigate claimed the owner
ship and entered a replevin suit. Both
were prominent men, and that section
would willingly fight for the "principle"
involved. The citizens divided on the
case. Four years of litigation followed.
The state's best legal' talent was em
ployed. Exoitement ran liigh and
while 12,500 was being spent for its
possession the $12 calf died. But thic
did not slay the conflict. By general
agreement the calf was skinned and the
fight continued over the possession of
the hide. Expert veterinarians and
cattle dealers were called to testify re
garding the markings on the bide.
One side contended they were barbed
wire cuts, the other that they were
brands. The climax came when the
bide was introduced at the last trial
and the hide showed no markings what
ever. The skin of the disputed calf
had been stolen. In disgust the jury
returned a verdict for the defendant.
The Picture Hat Going.
It is likely that the reign of the large
picture hat is nearly over. In any case
it is decidedly in abeyance, and the
small and medium sized hats will prob
ably be tbe prevailing models for some
time to come. The very large bat was
only suitable for the long trailing gowns
and these are worn only at night
at present. The foregoing is from
a fashion paper but the news is so good
that we feet like giving it, the most
prominent space in the Climax. The
large, or picture bats, are an abomina
ble nuisance and it " is refreshing to
think they are going out of style. Let
them go and go quickly. They not only
spoil the Iooks of most women but in
many cases hide from view their smil
ing faces. A pretty face is far more
appealing to the eye than any cart
wheel hat that evtn the most approved
and up-to date milliner can make.
