HIGH MINDS ARE LITTLE AFFECTED
There seems to be some discontent on the part of a few men, who at
tended the road meeting in Louisville last Tuesday and heard Rodman
Wiley. State Road Commissioner, make a speech to the members of the
Louisville Board of Trade, regarding the report The Breckenridge News'
printed about Wileys speech. This is what we said:
"As soon as Wiley made this statement, Mr Mercer reported that Mr.
William Heyburn, a member of the Board of Trade, got up and made a
speech in which he resented all that Wiley had said and Wiley pleaded
guilty." We have learned since that this is what we should have added:
Mr Wiley pleaded guilty, but did not retract his statement.
This message was kindly given to us over the telephone and we were
not able to give an account of Wiley's speech in detail. However, in
justice to him. we are glad to add this other statement.
Mr. Wiley was big enough and grand enough to give us the federal
highway, regardless of whether Louisville raised the $90,000 or not, so if
he can do this we feel sure that he will not feel offended over our partial
neglect in regard to his speech, as others seem to think he might
It has been said that. "High minds are little offended by neglected
returns for their service." and this is our estimation of Mr. Wiley.
Read the account of the Farmers Community Chautauqua to be held
in our county this week. These chautauquas have, been held inseveral
counties all over the state, and they have met with such great success in
attendance and interest that certainly hey are worth one's while. We hope
to see the Breckinridge county farmers out by a large majority.
FARM AND STOCK
Mr. J. T. Osborne and daughters.
Mrs. Martha Malone and Miss Mary
Osborne, of Farmersburg, Ind., were
visiting his son, A. G. Osborne and
Mrs. Osborne. Irvington Route 2 last
week. Mr. Osborne is a well to do
farmer of that section.
Mr. Sam J. Baker and son, of Fates
ville, were here circur- day. It was
Mr. Baker's first visit to this town in
a year. Says he used to do all his
trading here during Mr Fraizc's life
time. He is a young man at 82 years.
Last year he sold 2,000 pounds of
Burley tobacco at $ to $7fi per 100
pounds. The big ditch that is now
being dug from near Fatesville to
the Ohio river runs through his and
his son's farms. It cost them over
$4,000. He says like good roads it is
a good investment.
Mr. E. Bowne is going into the live
stock business right. He believes in
good stock and added last week S
head of fine Holstein heifers to his
herd. There are other farmers in
this community that ought to follow
suit. It pays to raise thoroughbred
stock of any kind.
Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Stiff, of Union
Star, were visiting their son, Don
Stiff last week.
Vernon and Victor Beauchamp, of
Chicago, were called to Hardinsburg

In the fall of 1917, fourteen grade
pigs were secured for fourteen coun
try schools in Worth County, Ky.
The girls of each school collected
the waste from the lunch baskets and
fed it to the pig and the boys took
turn bringing an ear of corn from
home. One who lived nearest .fed and
watered the pig on Saturday and Sun
day. In the spring, the fourteen pigs
were brought to the county seat and
sold for a total of $500, which was
divided among the schools and used
for improvement of the grounds and

Glenn W. Short, proprietor of
Buena Vista Farm, Fl Atkinson,1
Wis., held a sale of purebred Hol
steins at which M head brought $7,
155, an average of $210 each. A two-year-old
heifer brought the best price
of the sale, going for $400.
A Vermont breeder of Holstein cat
tle who has confessed that he faked
some of the wonderful records of his
c6ws admits that he wore a rubber
receptacle around his waist tilled with
cream. A tube led down his trouser
leg from this, allowing the cream to
run into the milking pail, resulting in
abnormal tests. Is that Yankee in
genuity? Boston Globe.

small crop, but it shows just what
can be done with the weed when it
is properly cultivated. It is topped
10 leaves to the plant. The leaves
measure 12 inches across and 'M inch

Gardner is an artist when it comes
to growing tobacco.
