Words Worth While.
In renewing her subscription to The
Breckenridge News,, Mrs. Glen Harda
way, of Irvington, writes: "We all
rejoiced over the editorial about the to
bacco. I think Mr. Babbage should as
well have the honor of turning on the
light as any one for the people must
have the light. There is an awful
craze, especially in our dear old Breck
enridge county,, for growing tobacco.
So let the enlightenment come through
the columns of your paper. I know you
have the smiles of the one who hates to
see his children raise something that is
a curse to our Christian nation."
Dry and Coldest Ever.
Dear Mr. Babbage: Enclosed find
one dollar to continue my subscription
to the News for another year. We
can't do without the News. It is just
like a letter from home. This has been
a dry winter, and the coldest ever
known In the State. Hope it will never
happen again, for I like California fine.
Good luck to the News.

JNO. D. BABBAGE,
About Primary Should be Stud
ied Careftilly--Makes Many
Changes in the Old Manner
The new primary election law passed
by the last Legislature made many
changes in the old manner of nomina
ting candidates for office. Candidates
for county and city offices should study
the law carefully In order to acquaint
themselves with Its provisions, because
certain things must be done before a
candidate's name can legally go on the
ballot at the August primary election.
Hereafter all devices will be elimina
ted. Only the names of the candidates
will appear on the ballot, and if there
are voters who are unable to read they
will have a hard time finding their
choice on the ballot. With the use of
devices voters who could "not read
found little trouble in locating their
favorites, but this has been changed by
the new election law and instead of a
ballot resembling a circus poster, it
will contain nothing but printed matter
with the names of candidates in the
One thing candidates should not
overlook is preparing the nominating
petitions and having the required num
ber of legal voters' signatures. A fail
ure in this will keep their names off the
ballot. Candidates for county and city
offices must file nominating petitions
bearing the signatures of not less than
3 per cent, aud of more than 10 per
cent. of the legal voters of the total
party at the last election for President.
Percentage of Signers.
It will be just as fatal to a candidate
to secure more than 10 per cent, than
less than 3 per cent. This limit of sig
natures wa3 probably incorporated in
the law to prevent candidates from
getting out early and securing a ma
jority, of signatures, which would pre
vent other candidates from getting up
a nominating petition.
When to File Petitions.
Cundldates must bear in mind that
nominating papers and petitions must
be filed with the county clerk thirty
days before the election aud nomina
ting petitions for signatures must not
De circulated earlier than sixty days be
fore the date of-filing, which is ninety
days before the election. The election
will be held on Saturday, August 3,
1013. According to the provisions of
the law petitions must not be circula
ted for signatures before next May and
June. If they arc candidates will be
barred from entering the primary.
Card of Thanks.
We want to thank those who were so
good to us during the illness and death
of our precious little son, Currie.

Private Mattingly Gets
Promotion in U. S. Army.
Robert Mattingly, of the United
States recruiting party stationed at
Louisville, has been made a corporal,
notice having been sent to him yester
day at the Cloverport substation that
he had been promoted from the ranks.
He will succeed Corporal Lockwood,
who purchased his discharge a few
weeks ago. Corporal Mattingly was
authorized to close the Cloverport sta
tion and open, one at Lebanon. Private
George J. Bennlnger was sent there
with him. Private Ernest G. Bank was
sent to Beaver Dam and Private Jas.
W. Rose to Glasgow.
Making Parcel Post Pay.
In looking through our exchanges we
notice that enterprising merchants in
several towns are advertising their fa
cilities for making prompt delivery of
goods to country patrons by Parcel
Post. One of The Sun's Versailles ad
vertisers Is doing the same thing In
viting his customers in the country who
want an article in a hurry to 'phone in
their order and be will get the goods
off by the first rural malt that passes
We believe this sort of enterprise will
pay. It seems to us that the live fel
lows who advertise their wares can
turn the Parcel Post to their advan
tage. In Europe the farmer derives profit
from the Parcel Post. He advertises
country produce in his local news
paper, t'o be delivered by post, and
adds dollars to his Income. Woodford
