$1,500 APPROPRIATED
By Fiscal Court for More In
telligent Farming.
The most far-reaching step toward
intelligent farming was taken by the
Fiscal Court at its adjourned meet
ing last Tuesday morning. The B.
M. A., through Mr. Castleberry, ap
peared before the court and asked
it to appropriate the sum of $1,609
to pay the Balary of a Government
expert to take charge of the business
of testing all fertilizers, seeds for
planting, etc., in this county for one
year. After considering the propo"
sition from tho hour o meeting un
til nearly 12 o'clock, during which
ltime many of the farmers of tho
vcounty and the members of the
court were heard from, the vote was
taken and carried without a dissent
ing voce.
It was tho opinion of everybody
that our farmers are behind the
times in scientific farming. The
Judge of the court and the county
Attorney expressed the same opinion.

TAXING INCOMES OF It I C II.
Democrats Will Pass A Speedy
Law To Enforce
. Measure.
Washington, Feb. 5. Here is the
Sixteenth Amendment to the Con
stitution of the United States, rati
fied Monday:
"Article XVI. The Congress shall
have power to lay and collect taxes
on incomes, from whatever source
derived, with ou t apportionment
among the several States, and with
out regard to any census or enumer
a'ion." Wyoming had the honor of mak
ing the amendment effective. With
in two hours after word was received
that the Wyoming Legislature had
ratified the amendment, a telegram
was received by Senator RichardHon,
of Delaware, Btating that his State
had also ratified the amendment,
and to this was added New Mexico,
making thirty-eight States to act
favorably, Utah and New Jersey
are expected to do the same. Only
thirty-six were needed.
The Democrats tariff makers of
the House and Senate forthwith an
nounced that thby would begin pre
parations at once to enact an income
tax law a3 a part of the Democratic
tariff programme at the coming ex
tra (Session of Congress. Senator
Simmons, of North Carolina, who
will probably be the next chairman
of the Finance Committee, spoke
for the Senate. Representative Hull,
of Tennessee, the income tax expert
of the Ways and Means Committee.
spoke for the House.
Senator Norris Brown, of Nebras
ka, Republican, author of the
amendment, which he introduced in
the Senate on June 17, 1909, with
pardonable pride, announced to the
Senate during the afternoon that
three-fourths of the sovereign States
had ratified it. He congratulated
the Senate and the country on the
result. The amendment will not be
come actually a part of the Constitu
tion until the notice of the ratifi
cation by Wyoming or Delaware has
been formally filed with the Senator
of StatP, which will doubtless be
within a few days.
The Democrats propose to raise
approximately $100,000,000 a year
by the new tax and to graduate it
so that persons of great wealth will
pay at a higher rate.
CIGAR GIFTS LEGALIZED
Congress Legalizes Custom of
Employes of Factories Get

Washington, Feb. 5. The custom
long followed by cigar manufactur
ers of allowing employes to make
twenty-one cigars a week each for
their own consumption without pay
ing the regular internal revenue tax
upon the product, was legalized by
Congress, when the Senate passed
bill already passed by tho House
amending tho internal revenue laws
in this particular.
Mardi Gras Closes.
New Orleans. Feb. 5. The carni-
val season was brought to a close

Like Real Battling.
London, Feb 5 The Turks re
main on the defensive at Tchatalji
at Adrainople. The Adrianopie
fortress replies only feebly to the
Bullgarian bombardment and ap
parently no attempt has been made
in the WBy of a sortie.
AS VIEWED AT CONSTANTINOPLE.
Constantinople, Feb. 5 The Bull-
ga lans, according to reports receiv
ed !.ist night, are retiring from the
b lrning village of Tchatalja, espe
cially on the left wing. This is re
garded as a strategical movement,
possibly with the idea of drawing
the Turks into the offensive.
The belief is held among military
experts here that no Berious opera
tions are to be expected at Tchatalta
for the present. The condition of
the southern portion of the zone be
tween the lines of the belligerents is
such as to render the movement of
of men impossible. It is little bet
ter than a morass. Only on the high
er ground in the northern region
can the armies come in contact and
it seems improbable that either side
will indulge in an attack in force.
According to the best information
here. Adrianople will be able to re
sist for a long time. Much is expect
ed by competent observers of the
new blood which now is at the head
of both military and civil adminis
trations, burning to avenge the earl
ier defeats, and the enterprise and
the daring of men like Enver Bey,
now for the first time given a chance
it is believed may surprise the allies
TWO WRECKS

lured. On account of tho wreck at

RAND JURY , IN SESSION.
The Sale Of 25,000,000 Pounds
Of Pooled Weed Hangs
Fire:
Henderson Ky., Feb. 5 Special
session of the grand jury was called
yesterday to thoroughly investigate
the tobacco situation in regard to
the open charges made that the four
big companies doing business here,
which includes the American Tobac-
c Company. Imperial Tobacco Com
pany, Galla.-her Limited and the
Regies, have combined in restraint
pf trade and for this reason the
sale of the 25 000,000 pounds of to-
b:cco of the Stemming District To
bacco Association has not been ef
fected. All day they were in session,
and nmong those summoned were
Wm. Elliott, manager of big pool;
James N. Banks, Tobacco Tidings
editor; Edwin Bemerly, American
TobaccDCo.,; C.F. Nosworthy and A
B. Harris, Independent buyers, and
Henry Barrett and prominent finan
ciers of Henderson. Each was kept
before the bodv from one to two
hours, At 5 o'clock they adjourned
and reported that it would take all
day today to complete their work,
but it is believed that indictments
will be returned. Commonwealth's
Attorney Sam V. Dixon has openly J
stated that he will fight the case
hard in event of indictments.
Much' interest has been aroused
over investigation.
Thomas Gallagher, one of the
largest independent buyers in the
world, will arrive here from Ireland,
Edwin Hodge, Imperial buyer, of
Richmond. Va , will also arrive to
day. The meeting of the Stemming
District Tobacco Association and the
buyers wa's postponed. There was
little change in the situation. Some
believe that Mr. Gallagher is con
sulting with head officials of the Im
perial Tobacco Company, and that
there will be a better offer when he
arrives.

THE PLOT IS DISCOVERED.
Will Liberate Thousands Of
Mice Among The Ladies
On The March.
Washington, Feb.5 Scrampering-
rats and mice, relied upon by college
students to stampede the suffragist
parade on March 3 and the unusual
demand for such animals wa3 ex
plained today when the plot that has
spread through virtually every col-
ege in the capital, was discovered.
The collegians intend, it was learn
ed, to pose their forces along the
ength of Pennsylvania avenue, and
at a prearranged signal dash into
the marching line with handbags or
parcels containing the mice, shak
ing them out into the street. They
anticipate the greatest display of
hosiery and lingerie ever seen.
POLICE SEEM HELPLESS.
When the plot was discovered the
suffragist leaders were dismayed.
Appeal to the police has been made
and Commissioner Rudolph has
promised protection. The police.
however, cannot make arrests until
after the mice have been liberated.
and the women fail to see that
arrests will remedy the situation.
Woman Legislator's Plan.
Salt Lake City, Utah. To prevent
the propagation of criminals, im
beciles and others whose mental or
physical condition might tend to pre
vent the advancement of the race, a
bill has introduced in the Utah
House or Representatives by Dr.
Jane W. Skolfield. It provides for
a State Bureau of Eugenics to gov
ern marriages and for the steriliza
tion of the unfit.
If the bill becomes a law a certifi
cate of physical and mental fitness
must be obtained before a marriage
license will be issued.
Dead Letter Sale.
The United States is $10,861 richer
through the carelessness of people
who neglected to place return ad
dresses on mail. The annual "dead
letter sale" at Washington netted
that sum. An unmounted diamond
of more than three karats went for
$350.
Articles of every description were
sold after being displayed to buyers,
the lottery feature of selling the
parcels unopened having been eli
minated. RAISE BASEBALL FUND
Paducah Board of Trade to
Help Out With Kitty League
Club.
Paducah, Ky., Feb. 5.-The Padu
cah Board of Trade probably will
assist in taking care of a Paducah
Kitty League club this season. The
members of the Phoenix Athletic
Club, holders of the franchise, say
that they are willing to turn over
the franchise. The fans want base
ball, and so do the business men, be
cause of the advertising that the
city receives. It is proposed to
raise a fund of $2,000 in order to
Btart the season.
