This Should Not Be.
A perusal of the records at the court
house divulges the fact that for the
year last past there has been but 64
marriage licenses issued as against 110
during the corresponding period for the
preceding year. It does seem that
beputy clerk Harry Tomlinson with
the brilliant prospects he seems to
have should have a better eye to keep
ing up the business of his office and
should try to improve it by example.
To Be Tried In Winchester.
Special Judge Newell presiding at
Jackson in the cases against D. F. Dea
ton and 14 others for the alledged killing
of Ed. Callahan the noted ex-sheriff at
Jackson, refused the application for a
hearing for bail for the defendants and
sustained the application of the Com
monwealth lor a change of venue,
transferring the cases to Clark county,
and fixing the time for today Thursday.
More City Lights.
The city council has ordered the in
stallation of three street lights along
Hamilton avenue. When this thorough
fare was constructed it was with a
view of giving the people who live in
the Buckeye locality a passway into
town without the necessity of having
to pass through the '"chute", but mrny
of them preferred even that mode of
entrance to travelling a dark street
which was comparatively unknown to
Lawyers Profiting By Marriages.
Out of the fifteen appearance cases
on the Circuit court docket, seven of
them are divorce cases. While it brings
in a little pocket change for the lawyers,
; still it is not very complimentary to our
county. Divorces are too common in
these days, probably due to the fact
that the parties do not consider the
t marriage vow as solemn as they should.
I Young men and young ladies, be sure
you get the right one before you venture
into the matrimonial field.

20 Cents For Garrard County Tobacco Is
The Way The 1912 Season Opens.
W. P. Kincaid of Stanford has been
in the county this week and purchased
35000 lbs of the 1912 crop paying an
average of 12cts per pound. His prize
purchase was the crop of Messrs J. B.
and S. P. Curtis of the Hackley vicinity
which consisted of about 4000 pounds
for which Mr Kincaid paid lOcts for 400
pounds and 20cts for the remainder of
the crop. The crop was a splendid one.
In fact Mr Kincaid pronounces the
entire crop an unusually good one.
Work Begins On The Dam.
The work of raising the water works
dam has commenced, contractor Moy
nohan is here and is having the mater
ial hauled to the water plant. Very
soon the work on the filter will also
begin, when every available team and
laborer within reach will be pressed in
to service. The work in connection
with the improvement of the water
plant will with very few exception be
done by home labor, the contractors of
course will bring some skilled labor
with them, but all the work that
can possibly be given will go to
home people. This will mean the dis
tribution o a goodly portion of the
money used in this wcrk at home.

Uncle Sam Without Our Solicitation Comes
To Our Aid In The Collection Of De

Prohibitory To Carry Any Unpaid
Subscription On Our List For
Longer Than A
The po&toffice department has issued
a ruling that newspaper subscriptions
must be paid in advance, and positive
ly forbidding any publication to carry
upon its lists subscribers who are more
than one year in arrears, and if they
do this they are liable to a forfeiture
of their postal rates. The Record has
been extremely lenient with its patrons
in this regard, in fact too lenient, for
Uncle Sam upon an inspection of our
lists has directed that we revise them
at once, cutting out all subscribers
who are one year in arrears. We are
mailing to each and every one of our
subscribers who are behind as much as
a year, a statement of the facts, to
gether with the amount they owe, and
we hope that they will remit to us
promptly in order that they may not
miss as issue of the paper. Everyone
is being treated alike, no favorites,
and all who do not comply with this re
quest by November 15th. will be strick

Dr. Pontius To Leave.
Dr. R. L. Pontius has been tendered
a splendid position in connection with
the Experimental Station at Lexington
which he has determined to accept and
leaves here for Lexington about Nov
ember 1st. While reluctant to leave
Lancaster, Dr. Pontius feels that be
cause of his health he should accept the
new position, as he will not have to
undergo near as much exposure as at
present, his duties there will be chiefly
in the laboratory. However, he will do
some field work, administering and
demonstrating the various serums
the cure of animal diseases.
During his stay in Lancaster
Pointus has proven himself one of
best Veterinary Surgeons in the state.
Not only this but he has made a host
of friends in the county and town all
of whom will be grieved to know of
his determination to leave Lancaster,.
Beginning To Roll.
Farmers are beginng to bring in
their corn. Local dealers are offering.
$2.25 for immediate delivery and $2.50
for delivery at gathering time. These
prices may and they may not prevail,
but a good number seem to be taking
a'dvantage of them. The crop aside,
from being abundant, is extraordinari
ly good and we hear no, complain of
rotten corn( thjs year, a complaint
which vas heard on all sides last year.

A good rain, and a resulting season
would start the tobacco crop to moving,
the farmers all being ready to begin
the handling of the crop as soon as
conditions will permit. We hear of
here and there a little "house burn"
from housing some of the early cutting
while it was wet, but as a general thing
the crop is a splendid one, in fact one of
the best seen in the county for years.

"Uncle Joe" Hopper is conducting a
series of meetings at the Presbyterian
church, he began on last Sunday
morning and preaches two sermons
daily, at 10 o'clock in the morning and
7 o'clock in the evening. The meeting
will continue, to use the splendid old
gentlemans words, "as long as his
feeble strength will permit, and the
Master desires". Large crowds
being attracted and much interest
"Uncle Joe" was born in Lancaster
on July 22 1829 where W. B. Ball now
conducts a grocery store. He united
with the old Presbyterian church at
this place in 1843 and was ordained a
deacon in that church in 1845, at the
same time the late William H. Kin
naird was ordained an elder. "Uncle
Joe's" religious work dated from that
time, he began at once to organize and
conduct Sunday schools and to do
whatsoever work he felt he was called
upon to do in the Master's cause. In
1850 he removed to Perryville Ky. and
was there ordained a ruling Elder and
continued as such for over 40 years.
In the early sixties under the auspices
of the American Sunday School Union,
non sectarian, he took charge of Sun
day school work in Kentucky until the
Synod of Kentucky ordained that he
should take charge of their work and
made him an assistant evangelist for
the state. When at the advanced age
of 67 years, and, after the good old
man had devoted almost a lifetime
to the advancement of the Master'g
cause, the Transylvania Presbytery of;
Kentucky decreed that he should preach
the gospel as a minister and he was.
ordained at Lebanon Ky. Both be
fore and since that time he has carried,
his Master's message to- tb,e highways
and byways of the sate, an$ has seen
hundreds of people brought to Christ
through his ministrations.
Uncle Joe is a cousin of the late
Seymour Hopper and has many rela
tives and an unlimited number of
friends throughout the coupty.
Notwithstanding his extreme ageK h
has a strong mind, a retentive memory
and a wonderful strong andr attractive
personalty. His, ii,fej while haying
been a buiy, on. b,as been fraught witk
much, peace an happiness, by his
kmY ways, hia cheering words and
benevolent disposition he has, drawn to
himself hundreds of. frienda and when
his earthly career is brought to a close,
his labors, on thia earth are finished,
there will surely be a crown of glory
awaiting him in the Great Beyond.
