ATTORNEY GENERAL'S VIEW
Sustains the Opinion tendered
By County Judge
The squabble in the Fiscal Court
over the office of Supervisor of
Roads has been apparently settled
by a decision rendered by Attorney
General James- Garnett.
The legislature of 1912 repealed
the law authorizing a supervisor
and passed one providing for a Road
Engineer. This law. became effect
ive in June, providing that super
visors in office should serve out
E. W. Coleman, supervisor, was
re elected for a new term ofv two
years April 10, 1912, after the new
law was passed but before it took
effect. The contention arose over
I this point. The Attorney General
decides that Mr. Coleman was legal
ly re-elected, as' the new, law was
not then in effect, and is entitled to
serve until April 10. 1914. Judge
Knight, who had the matter, under
advisement, has also rendered a de
cision in accordance with the opin
ion of the Attorney General and Mr.
Coleman is still in the office.

In Christian County Has Prov
: en Great Success.
For a quarter of a century Hop
kinsville people have been eating
celery brought from Kalamazoo,
Mich. Ahd the impression was gen
eral that white, crispy celery could
only be raised in the section where !
Kalamazoo is located.
There is no reason why celery
should not become one of the staples
of Christian county. W. R. Brum-'
field, the leading market gardener, '
whosp farm is about a mile from the
city, has been delivering celery to
the grocers ever since the season
opened and his crop has already sup
planted the Kalamazoo product.
Mr. Brumfield put in five acres
this year, previously having put in a
small spot in his market garden so
that he could get on to the best way
of cultivating and bleaching it. Now
he is as expert in raising it as any
thing else he grows for market.
His celery is larger than that usually
shipped in from Kalamezoo and is in
every way preferable. Though it
does not run so large as the stalks
sometimes sent here from California,
the California stalks are coarse and
lack In flavor the real essential de
manded by the epicure and all who
are fond of it.
Market gardening is becoming
more general every yeir nmong
formers near th'ejeity and there is
no reason why celery should not be
largely produced bj tho3e whose
shil may be specially adapted to it,
but every reason why it should.
