Editor J. M. Richardson, of the
Glasgow Times says, "That the days of
the country newspaper are swiftly pas
sing, and the telephone and telegraph
and rural free delivery of our city pub
lication have sounded its doom."
There ia some truth in this observa
tion, and yet the conclusion is radical
ly wrong. The reason why the city
dailies have made inroads on the coun
try newspapers is the fact that a large
per cent of them have deserted the
field of legitimate news of state and
national importance, and have confined
themselves merely to giving a few of
the local happenings in a slip-shod
manner and giving their paper over
chiefly to the financial end. In other
words they have sacrificed their entire
paper and have made it but little more
than an almanac carrying a few stale
jokes ana advertisements, inis is
radically wrong and the people resent
it. Also the advertiser resents it, be
cause he wants his advertisement print
ed in a paper that has standing and
character and gives the people suffici
ent news to make it a readable and de
sirable paper; one.the coming of which,
is looked forward to by the family.
It has been our endeavor to get out
of the old, beaten path of county jour
nalism and to give to our readers the
national, state and local news, and in
this policy we have found considerable
favor. We shall not abandon the plan,
but on the contrary shall extend it and
try to make our sheet more desirable in
the future than it has been in the past.
Publishers who win favor in the com
munity must give their patrons a read'
able paper. Ninety per cent of the
people do not take daily paper. But
they won't take the county paper un
less it is in truth, as well as name, i

in this direction or are you kicking us
the other way?

the act is concerned. But when a man
in a public position is brave enough to
defy popular local opinion and assume
the burdens of political and social os
tracism, there is something in the act
that deserves unstinted praise. He is a
brave man. He voluntarily took upon
himself humiliation in order to obey
bis conscience. Public clamor against
him has been bombastic and he has
been hung in effigy in his own state and
has been humiliated by having to call
out his own militia to protect himself
and family from a foolish mob. The
end is not yet.
But the intelligence of the country
will support him and there will be a re
action in his favor and in due season he
will again be the first citizen of Georgia.
Some papers have gone so far as to
suggest him as suitable presidental

The race between Shackelford and

acrimonious stage. The friends of
these two gentlemen should intervene
and stop it if they can. Both have
legions of friends in the district and the
manner in which the campaign is now
being conducted will be seriously detri
mental to the peace of the people.
Likewise to the usefulness of the con
testants. We are exceedingly glad that
inrougnout tne campaign we nave re

tend to engender more hard feelings be
tween these two gentlemen or that
would tend to drive the people to a

This the the tribute paid by the late
Robert Ingersoll to women:
"It takes a hundred men to make an
encampment, but one woman can make
a home. I not only admire women as
the most beautiful object ever created,
but I reverence her as the redeemed
glory of humanity, the sanctuary of all
virtues, the pledge of all perfect quali
ties- of the heart and head. It is be
cause women are so much better than
n that their faults are considered
greater. The one thing in this world
that's constant, the peak that rises
above the clounds, the one window in
which the light burns forever, the one
tar that the' darkness cannot qucncbj
is woman's love. It rises to the great
est heights, it sinke to the ' lowest
depths, it forgives the most cruel in
juries. A woman's love is the perfume
of the earth.- This is the real love that
subdues the earth; the love that
wrought all the miracles of art; that
gives us music all the way from the
cradle song to that grand closing sym
phony that bears the soul away on
wings of fire. A love that is greater
power, sweeter than life, and stronger
WE ARE NOT EXTREMISTS.
It is claimed that I am an extremist
for the prohibition cause for the reason
that this paper refused to carry adver
tising matter for the wet side of . the
Just a word please. -
In assuming my position I followed
the course that I have followed all my
life. It is nothing new to me, nor am I
expecting any political rewards for it.
I am merely following the bent of my
mind. As a lawyer with thirty years
experience at the bar, with seven years
experience as a public prosecutor and
with my individual observations as a
citizen of an enlightened community, I
can not find anything to justify the
continuance of the liquor traffic. There
are volumes that can be written against
Let me cite some cases which came
before me for prosecution while county
attorney of our neighboring county of
Puckett and his two sons who were
indicted and tried for the murder of
Hall, were all drinking when the crime
was commited. It was a horrible,
brutal murder. The trial resulted in
one death penalty and two convictions
to the penitentiary for life. In the
neighboring county of Powell I was ap
pointed Commonwealth's Attorney pro
tem. At that term of the court I pros
ecuted Bush to death for the murder
of his wife and secured two other life
convictions, all the result of whiskey.
Thus in two weeks exactly, had prose
cuted two men to death and four to the
penitentiary for life. In the seven years
that I served as county attorney many
persons were sent to the penitentiary
for long and short terms and in every
case it was the result of whisky.
In my younger life I saw much of
the drunken side of life in an open
town and I determined that every time
that I could do so I would raise my
voice against liquor. I have followed
that course consistently and expect to
continue in the same.
I am aware that there are two sides
to every question, the right side and
the wrong side. My intelligence and
my accumulated experience tell me that
I am on the right side. Those who op
pose my views no doubt are just as sin
cere in their views as I am in mine.
The reasons that make them so, ap
peal to them and convince them that
they are right. Those reasons do not
in the least convince me that they are
right. Therefore, we differ as gentle
men, and, so differing, entertain the
highest respect for the other. Some
of my best friends are against my posi
tion. I respect them for their candor.
It is claimed that the liquor question
is a public question and as such that
we ought to be willing to publish the
arguments of both sides. But we must
remember that arguments are not al
ways fair or candid. Nor are we under
the slightest obligations to the public
to publish stuff as a paid advertisement
which is contrary to our conscience,
nor as to the truth of which we are not
advised. We shall refuse to do so for
the pecuniary profit it may be to us,
preferring to make our money in other
With this statement of the case, we
again say that we will continue to re
fuse to carry advertisement which may
be sent to us by the liquor side of the
question. We submit to the better
judgment of the fathers and mothers
of the county whether or not they want
papers coming into their homes carry
ing liquor arguments as advertisements,
thus poisoning the minds of their young,
immature children or whether they
want a paper that stands four square
against the liquor traffic and is willing
to forego many of the blood money
dollars ot organized vice and crime
rather than to carry matter into your
home that may destroy your family.
GRANT E. LILLY
Said a whiskey flask to a cigarette,
I'd like to make a good sized bet
That I can get more scalps than you,
Although your victims ain't so few, -Said
the cigarette to the whiskey flask,
Well that's as easy as I could ask,
For I give kids their downward start,
Then you pitch in and do your part;
They come to you with burning thirst,
But I'm the one that sees 'em first,
bo most 01 them should count for me;
I'll take the bet, its a cinch, d'y see.
Then the whiskey had this to say
I never looked at the thing that way
I must confess you spoke the truth
'Tis you that tackles the foolish youth,
You fill his system with dopey smoke,
I mould him into a first-class soak; .
We work together far too well.
To quarrel even for a spell.
So the whisky flask and the cigarette
Shook hands and called off the bet
And away they sauntered side by side,
Hunting for victims far and wide;
In every corner of the nation,
Partners in crime and ruination.
So there's our warning on the level,
Shun them as you would the Devi).
TRADE AT HOME.
We print in this issue a very sensible
discussion of the "Trade at Home
Question" handed to us by a promi
nent business firm of this city. It is
well worthy of reading. And now we
ask the public to take some of it home
to themselves. There are many people
who send their work away from home.
But every kind 01 printing'ordinarily
used by people here can be done here.
That which cannot be done here, for
instance engraved and embossed work,
the papers can have done for you and
it won't cost you one cent more. All
such work sent from home is done at
standard prices and the papers can get
it done just as cheap for their patrons
as they can get it. At the same time, it
will pay them a small commission.
Every dollar that you take away from
the local papers, cripples them so much
and prevents them from doing ' better
work for the city and county. Besides
it is not right to expect the local papers
at their own costs, to give such public
ity as may be desired and then patronize
the job shops who get the long green,
which justly should go to the papers
who boost your business, your city,
your county, yourselves and families.
It takes money to run a newspaper a
whole bushel basketful. .
Candidly, did you ever think of it in
DR. E. O. GUERRANT.
Richmond will have next Sunday one
of the most distinguitked divines of the
State as her guest, Dr. E. O. Guerrant.
He has done more for the State of Ken
tucky than any other man known to
us. We have been over the State both
before and since he commenced his
evangelistic work. There has been
wrought a reformation throughout
Eastern Kentucky where he has labored
Here is a summary of his work:
Behold What God Hath Wrought.
Seventeen years ago, a little company
of Christians determined by God's help
to send the Gospel to the thousands of
our poor countrymen living in the "re
gions beyond" churches and preachers
among the fastnesses ot the Allegheny
and Cumberland mountains. For more
than a hundred years, they have been
passed by and left to perish without the
Gospel or the means of getting it. Tens
of thousands of them have never seen a
church or heard a sermon they " could
At first only one evangelist was sent
forth and $360 provided for his salary.
That was a humble beginning, but God
was behind it, and He is Almighty.
With only His promise to rely on,
and no Agency, or Constituency to ap
peal to, this work of faith has grown
from year to year.
In ten years, 262 missionaries have
labored exclusively in these wild moun
tains. They made 51,000 visits, held
over 22,046 public services at 10,069
places, had 3,304 confessions, distribut
ed over 10,000 Bibles and Testaments
and 125,000 tracts, built 56 churches,
school and mission houses, including
Have you a part in this work and its
reward. Send your help to Dr. Ed'
ward O. Guerrant, Wilmore, Ky.
We believe that every .Democrat in
Estill county, and in the mountain
counties of the State for all that matter,
ought to vote for Hon. Jas. D. Black,
of Barbourville, for Lieutenant Gov
ernor. He would add material strength
to the ticket in the November election,
no matter who the nominee might be
for Governor, or what his views might
be on various issues before the people
Mr. Black is well-known to most of our
citizens and that he is an able, high-
toned gentleman is unquestioned. What
the Democratic party needs to uphold
its supremacy in Kentucky is men like
Judge Black, occupying' the highest
offices within the gift of the people.
The sealous advocates of Benton and
Shackelford are energetically voting
some of the well known citizens for their
favorites, forgetting entirely that on
the day of the election that these well
known citizens will do their own voting,
The claim is put forward that McDer-
molt will share the Newman vote. But
why discuss fractions?
Rev. E. O. Guerrant, D. D., of Wil
more, Ky., will preach next Sunday
morning and assist In the quarterly com
munion service. No service at night,
Dr. Guerrant will preach at the Union
service at night in the Chautauqua tent

Sunday is the day for the regular
preaching service at the Second
Christian church. We are. expecting a
great service and the general public is
cordially invited to be present at each

ones at which Boone stopped, or where
he crossed, and folk lore and legends
have been offered as'convincing argu
ment for the location of the monuments
to the intrepidity of the explorer. The
spots chosen have been made as authen

through months of labor and delving in

While in many places they are inden
tical, there is no connection between
the Boone Trail for which the markers
have been prepared and erected and the
Boone Highway. The Boone Trail, the
Boone Highway, and the Dixie High
way, too, at many points converge and
become one continuous route until the
dictations of history divert the Boone
Trail another way.
