Like A Letter From Hoee.
Did you know the Central Record
would be one of the best New Years
gifts you could se nd an absent friend
who has once lived in our midst Each
week it is a long, newsy letter to the
abwnt ones about the folks back in the
old home town. We have read several
letters thanking not only the giver but
the editor for being prompt in sending,
it as it was looked forward to fifty two
times a year.
Think of your absent friends and
como in and give us their names,
Mr. FJkia To Sell Ford AtomBiIe.
Mr. Robert L. Elkin of the Record
office has accepted the agency for the
Ford automobile, and in the near fa
ture, bo he tells us, expects to have a
car load of these popular machines in
Lancaster. The Ford has had several
severe tryouts at the hands of Lancas
ter people and has invariably given
satisfaction, and with the energy which
Mr. Elkin is accustomed to putting in
all of his undertakings, be will no doubt
be able to place many new machines
in Garrard county with the opening of
favorable climatic conditions.

To The Ladies.
The controversy as to tho ownership
of the Park has been settled.
It belongs to the town. A good time
to strike Is while the iron is hot Now
while the weather prohibits any kind of
beautifying, would be a good time to
urge upon the city council the request
that the ladies be given supervision
over this centrally located plot of ground;
also to looking after funds sufficient to
carry out the plans heretofore outlined
looking to its beautification, so that
when the weather will permit, the act
ual work may be started without the
necessary delay incident to tho arrang
ing of these preliminaries.
Record Late And Issued Under Difficulties.
The Record is late this week and was
Issued under stress of great difficulty.
Accidents ore unavoidable, and printing
offices nre no exception to this rule.
Just as we started to press a cog wheel
attached to tho big news press broke
and it could not be repaired or replaced
at home. The Business Manager rushed
ofT to Louisville with the faulty piece
of machinery and after the unavoidable
delay incident to such occasions we
were enabled to resume "tho run".
We hope that such an accident will not
occur again, but we, can not vouch for
it, and under the circumstances, we will
have to beg the indulgence of our
Roy Arnold Secures Patent On Baggy

Become Very Remunerative.
Mr. Roy M. Arnold, the Danville
buggy man, has been using an attach
ment on his 1912 buggies, it is called
a double reach, reinforced inside
gear", which has proven of such
benefit that he has had it patented and
hereafter every buggy turned out of
his shop will be equipped with the
contrivance, not only this but it is
calculated to bring Mr. Arnold
considerable remuneration as it is a
very useful contrivance.
Roy Arnold is an old Garrard county
boy, a son of the late Roy Arnold of
the lower end of the county, and a
brother of Mr. Thomas M. Arnold Jr.

conduct fair dealing and business
acumen, he has succeeded in building
up a business in Danville second to none
of its kind in central Kentucky. Mr

Editor Green Clay Walker, who has
made the Lancaster Record, a most
excellent paper for the past several
years, has sold nlslnterest In that paper
to Mr. Joseph E. Robinson and will de
vote his time to his practice of the law.
Mr. Robinson has taken up his pen as
editor and proves in his first edition that
he is the right man for tho place. He
will be assisted by Mr. R. L. Elkin as
business manager, and Mr. George
Smith, Jr., who seems to be a part of
tho office outfit, will remain with the
Record and will continue to make the
local pages of that paper teem with I
bright, crisp local lore. Richmond
Hon. Joe E. Robinson, of Lancaster,
this week assumes charge as editor of
the Central Record, in that city. Mr.
Robinson, who is a prominent attorney
at law, and county attorney for that
county will do the editorial work on
the paper, but will not allow it in any
way to interfere with his lucrative law
business. As county attorney Mr. Rob
inson has made an envitable record in
securins conviction of criminals. He
has been a vigorous and absolutely
fearless prosecutor, and performed his
duties to the satisfaction of all. He
will not be a candidate for re-election.
In fact Mr. Robinson is not a candidate
for any office. He is a dyed-in-the-wool
Democrat, and a hard worker for
his party. We welcome Mr. Robinson
on the tripod and wish for him every
success. Danville Messenger.
The Bastin Telephone Co. Prores A Tem
porary Stumbling Block To The
Efforts Ot An Infant
The Hubble Telephone Co. an indus
try as yet in its infancy, but rapidly
becoming a lusty infant, met with a
temporary rebuff last week in their
efforts to get connection with the Cum
berland people into Lancaster, however,
the larger corporation was duly notified
that "a child must crawl before itcould
walk", and that the now infant would
soon gather strength that would enable
them to force their now.' overbearing
competitor to not only come to their
terms as to connection, but to grant
them other concessions which they ask
ed and desired.
Hie Hubble Co. has an exchange at
the residence of Mr. A. P. Sloan about
one mile south of Hubble and already
have about seventy five phones and are
putting in new ones every day.
One day last week a representative
of the Cumberland Co. met with the
directors of the newly organized and
established Hubble Co. with a view of
devising some means by which the two
lines might connect Into Lancaster.
Several propositions were offered and
were as readily rejected by the Hubble
people, when the long expected infor
mation was forthcoming from the Cum
berland people that thoy had a contract
with the BASTIN TELEPHONE CO.
covering Garrard county territory, and
that no definite steps could be taken
looking to granting the Hubble people
connection into Lancaster until after
the Bastin people had 'been consulted
and acquiesced in any prospective ar
rangement The Hubble Co. while an
Infant industry is not so puerile as
might be imagined, and the more ar
rogant companies under the" recently
enacted laws of the state of Kentucky,
can and will be brought to see the mat
ter in the proper light, and their pres
ent arbitrary attitude is but a play for
time, and in due course of time they
will be compelled to grant connection
to the Hubble people, both into Lancas
ter or any other point on their system
to which they may desire connection.
Chapter 143 of the Acts of 1912 ol
the Kentucky Legislature fully covers
the matter and provides specifically for
the connection of exchanges operated
by different corporations, and under
this act the Hubble people can force
the Cumberland people to. give them
connection, regardless of any existing
contract that the latter company may
have with the Bastn Telephone Co.,
and the latter company cannot dictate
the terms of "Garrard county terri
tory", as to whether or not the Hub-
ble people or any other telephone com
pany may or may not get connection
The Hubble Co. "we predict will not
be bluffed by Uie Cumberland people,
they are not ignorant as to their rights
under the lawK nor do we believe they
will be slow In asserting thoso rights,
and the Bastin people and their con
tracts to the contrary notwithstanding,
we firmly believe that the very near
future will see the Hubble people with
connection into Lancaster over the lin
es of the Cumberland people, awl in
possession of all other rights and priv
ileges vouchsafed them under the laws
pf the state ol Kentucky. ,
