GOOD FRIENDS OF THE LATE THOS. J. JOLLY.
Dr. P. W. Footc, of Irvington, went to Owcnsboro Saturday to
sec his brother, Ed, who is down with rheumatism.
Ho says his neighborhood has lost one of its most valuablo citi
zens in the recent death of Thos. J. .Tolly. Ho was a man that every
body loved and honored, a progressive fanner and a neighborly
neighbor and n man who did a3 much for the uplift of his community
and county as any other man in it.
The Hon. Chas. Blanford, in speaking of Mr. Jolly's death, said
he had lost the best friend ho had over had. lie said there was one
thing in connection with his death that showed the devotion of and
almost hunmn instinct of his faithful dog, who followed him where
ever ho went. On tho morning of his death he was with his dog
hunting a bog that ho wanted to bring home. About ten o'clock his
grand-son, Koy Cain, passed along the road and at a certain point
this dog came out from the bushes and barked at Roy. Mr. Cain
paid no attention to tho dog and passed on. As ho came back the
dog came out again and attracted bis attention in tho samo manner,
barking as though something was wrong. Mr. Cain got oil' his horse
and followed tho dog a short distance in tho woods and there ho
found the lifeless body of his grand-father. This was tho first inti
mation anyone had of Mr. Jolly's death. But for this faithful dog
Mr. .Folly's body would not have been found for days.
Our banks make a tino showing for tho beginning of tho Now
Year. Tho seven banks reporting in this issue have on deposit
$737,;518.59, and it is an oir year at that. Very little tobacco has been
sold and what has been sold has not been delivered. With the deliver
ies going on now it ought to swell tho deposits to over a million dol
lars. This looks mighty good when wo look back twenty-five yearn,
when wo had only one bank with a deposit of a little over .$100,000.
Then wo had no railroads in tho county and very few postollices.
Now we have a bank or two in over important town, a railroad station
and a postoifico at most every man's door, daily and weekly newspa
pers to keep us posted, and many things thut go to make up tho com
forts our forefathers know not. And yet, some of us are knocking
because things arc not better. Wo have everything to bo thankful
for and all of us should be happy and go into the new year with a
light and happy heart.
This, week begins an important term of work in the schools all
over the county and country. Gratifying und inspiring it is to see
the boys and girls start back to school with such vim and ambition
Monday four young men and two young women went to Ilardinsburg
from Custer to enter school there and prepare themselves for college
Tuesday five young people left this city, three of them ambitious
young men, to enter thoir college halls. "Going to college" means
hard work and the days spent there are not all tilled with good times.
Wo think tho boys and girls who are applying themselves so well at
school hero and in other placos, deserve credit and all the encourage
ment that can possibly be given them. It would be far ea-ier for
them to stay at homo and pick up their education as they go along.
N While The Press Thunders
No tobacco meeting was held at Irvington Saturday as was an
nounced. Little interest in tho big tobacco convention to bo held at
Lexington tomorrow has been shown by the growers of this county.
Reports show that a majority of the counties have declared for a cut
out of the crop of 1911, others for a pool of in 1911 and a cut out in
1912. It will bo tho object of tho Lexington meeting to harmonize
these different views.
Tobacco was rolling into Glen Dean last Monday and money was
rolling out. Cashier Snyder did not observe tho legal holiday but
kept his bank open to accommodate the farmers who brought their
tobacco and wanted their money. Mr. Snyder is a very accommoda
ting man and tho business of his bank is steadily increasing, as it

The Famous tS&jb
Gives the Best Light at Any. Price
When you pay more than the Rayo
price for a lamp, you are paying for extra
decorations that cannot add to the quality
of the light. You can't pay for a better
light, because there Is none. An oil light
has the least effect on the human eye, and
the Rayo Lamp is the best oil lamp made,
though low in price. You can pay $5, $10,
or $20 for some other lamp, and although
you get a more costly lamp, you can't
get a better light than the white, mellow,
diffused, unfllckering light of the low

The Fisherman Who DId'nt Forget
More than a year ago ono summer
night Dr. Kafferty was called to a little
house boat down on the river tq treat a
fisherman who was quite ill, and he
cured him. When the man took up his
nets to leave this port, he pnmised the
Doctor if he ever come across a good
location in his wanderings that he would
inform him. A week or two before
Christmas Dr. Kafferty received a letter
from his river friend saying that he wis
located on a lumber plantation in Miss
issippi nud a splendid opening was there
for a physician. The fit-her man urged
Dr. Rafferty to come nt once. The own
er of the lumber company also wrote
him a letter requesting him to come, to
last week the aoctor bought his ticket
for Stonevillc, Miss. Monday Mr. C.
Brahandt had n card from lim, stating
that the place was as good as represent
ed nud he Was well pleased with the out
look for a large practice. Thtre are two
hundred lumbermen on the plantation
nud Dr. Kaffetty will he pairl a salaty
monthly by the Ilnynes Hutler Lumber
Company. If the place proves ao satis
factory in the next two m mills as it is
flittering now, Dr. Rafferty's fauiilv
will join him at Stonevllle and make
the south their future home.

Gems From Ancient Graveyards
Tho Suffolk (England) Institute of
Archaeology has been collecting epl
taphs from the ancient graveyards
throughout the shire, nnd several of
the most curious are here printed. One
shows traces of a pessimistic philoso
phy surprising when we consider the
strong orthodoxy of the day when the
epitaph was written:
Beneath this stone lies Catherine Gray,
Changed to a lifeless lump of clay.
By earth und clay she, got her pelf.
And now sh";'s turned to clay herself.
Who Knows hut In tho course of years
In some tall pitcher or brown pan
She In her thop may stand again.
Another from Suffolk rends as fol
lows: Hero ll-'s Robert Wallas,
Tho Kins of Good Fellows,
Clerk of All Hallows
And maker of bellows.
These which follow could scarcely be
lines chosen by the reverend occupant
of tho tomb himself, a clergyman
Hero lies at rest, I do protest,
One Chest within another.
The chest of wood was very good.
Who says so of tho other?
And, to conclude, here is a bit of phi
losophy that ennnot ho Improved bj
any of tho great thinkers of all tlmo:
Here I lie outside the chancel door;
Here I lie because I'm poor.
The further In the more they pay,
But horo I He as warm as they.

"Do you believe in long engage
ments?" ho asked after sho had con
sented to be his.
"Yes, dearest." sho replied. "I havo
always thought It was such a mlstako
for two people to rush into matrlniouy
before thoy learned to really know
"Well, about how long would you
wish tho engagement to bo?"
"Let mo seo! Would you think it
was too long If we didn't get married
until a week from nest Thursday?"
Before Longfellow bought tho houso
la Cumbrldgo so associated with his
memory it was owned and occupied by
old Mrs. Cralglo. Mrs. Cralglo was u
woman of many eccentricities. Some
ouc onco tried to persuade her to have
her trees tarred to protect them from
catorplllars, which also Invaded her
neighbors' trees. Sho refused to bo so
cruel to tho caterpillars. "Thoy aro

By permission of my employer, the
Sheriff, I am going to extend the time
for the final payment of taxes in this
district one moremonth, JUST THIR
TY SHORT DAYS. At the end of
that time, which will be Feb. 1, 191 1,
I am going to advertise every man's,
woman's or child's list that is left on
my books on that day unpaid.
Now, if you think I am not in ear
nest about this matter just let the
time pass and see what the result will
be, but I would much rather you stop

additional cost to you.

not blame me when you are forced to
