The Pittsburg Post says that Ameri
can citizens have fully $000,000,000 in
vested in Mexico and that fully two
thirds of this wealth has been wiped
out during the revolt. The majority of
American investments are said to be in
railroads, securities or in lands and
while the railroad securities may be
impaired, the land is still there and will
be until the end of time,
One of the most important problems
that Mr. Taf t will pass over to Mr.

has been done the past four years on

with the coming in of the new
administration, that vast country with
its billions of tons of coal and fast
quanities of other mineral wealth, the
problem will be taken up in earnest

about the bacterial count after it had

seriously ill for the last week at her
home on Danville street in this city of
cerebral trouble, we are glad to be able

her many friends are hoping that, she

Crime Rampant In Mercer.
It is a deep source of regret to us
that the grand jury had to report such
bad things of our proud old county.
There is no question, however, but for
the last six or eight months crime and
law-breaking has been bolder than for
some years past. Harrodsburg Leader.

Mr. Coleman Gully says Mr. Baily is

Mr. Chas. Hayden, who has long been

one time on the run through Lancaster,
was shaking hands with friends here
Monday. Mr. Hayden is at present,
and has been for many years transfer
clerk at the Tenth street depot in
Louisville. He is a son of the late J.J.

Green Clay Walker 111.
Mr. Green Clay Walker, formerly
editor of the Record, is in the Good
Samaritan Hospital in Cincinnati, wher
he is undergoing treatment for
rheumatism, a malady from which he
has been a severe sufferer for some
time. He is considerably improved and
hopes within a few weeks to be entirely
recovered and to be able to return home
and prosecute his campaign for the
nomination for County Attorney.
Mr. and Mrs. Miller Loses Old Friend.
Mr. and Mrs. N. Miller had the mis
fortune to lose their old family mare
on last Monday. The faithful old beast
was past twenty-five years of age and
had traveled many hunJred miles to
and from Lancaster, bringing the young
Millers to and from school, as well as
doing the many other chores required
of the usual family hack horse. She
was in apparent good health, and was
rolling in the yard, and when she did
not get up, upon investigation she was
found to have breathed her last
Tribute To A Vanishing Race.
It must have been an impressive sight
when twenty nine full blooded Indian
chiefs between the ages of seventy and
eighty, many of whom had fought Cus
ter, attired in the regalia of their rank,
marched side by side with the Great
White Father to the highest crest of
While the Indian Chieftains sang the
folk songs of their race, President Taf t
and Chief Hollow Horn Bear broke
ground for a sixty foot bronze statue
of an Indian warrior. As their voices
died away the band broke out with the
Star Spangled Banner, emblematic of
themerging of a great race of people
into that pf another andastronger.one.
The fund for the erection of a Loose
Leaf Tobacco Warehouse In Lancaster
is growing rapidly, and it is expected
that a sufficient number of shares of
stock will have been subscribed shortly
to enable the piomoters to file articles
of incorporation and get down to busi
ness. It is earnestly desired that the
farmers throughout the county become
interested in the warehouse, that they
subscribe to the stock, thereby creating
an interest in the venture all over the
county. This is not taking a chance.
it is a puiely legitimate investment,
an investment that will pay you a
handsome dividend, not only a liberal
per cent, but will help the county, will
increase the value of your real estate,
enable you to market your tobacco at
home, and you know the many advan
tages which will attend that proposi
tion, it will increase the bank deposits,
will cause the great bulk of the money
which comes to the tobacco raiser to
be spent at home, will materially in
crease tne business of the home mer
chants, and in a thousand ways will
help the county and thereby help you.
Think this matter over carefully.
CAN YOU AFFORD TO LET THE
OPPORTUNITY ESCAPE YOU TO
ASSIST IN THIS MOVEMENT. The
cost to you of marketing one crop of
tobacco in a foreign market would
purchase one share of stock in the
home warehouse, and the purchase of
one share by you might stimulate some
one else to take stock, and so the en
tire amount might be raised.

Remember you are not simply giv

doubtful or "wildcat" venture: the

they have paid handsomely. If they

A neat catalogue announcing the sale

sale has every evidence of being a suc

Big Real Estate Deal.
Mr. S. D. Cochran on Monday sold
his farm, which is situated on the Lex
ington pike a mile from town, and which
is one of the best farms in the county,
embracing in the boundary 264 acre3 to
James L Hamilton at $120, per acre;
possession to be given January 1, 1914.
Mr. Cochran then purchased of Mr. W.
S. Carrier his handsome newly erected
home on Danville street in Lancaster
for $6,000. Mr. Cochran we are glad to
learn will become a permanent citizen
of Lancaster on January 1, 1914. We
are also rejoiced over the fact that Mr.
Carrier entertains no idea of leaving
Lancaster, but is in the market for
another home here.
The sales were consummated through
tho real estate firm of Hughes & Swine-
