Done in Bowling Green Than
in Busy Hopkinsville.
Chief of Police Ellis Roper, of Hop
kinsville, who is here attending Fed
eral Court, called on Chief of Police
Tom Potter this morning. According
to Mr. Roper's reports Bowling
Green shows un favorably with its
police court record with the Christian
county city. Hopkinsville employs
12 police, Chief Roper and a station
keeper, and during the year has
booked over 2,000 arrests, with 17
prisoners now on had.
Chief Ellis was some what surprised
to find the Bowling Green station
house empty, and to learn that up to
date only 395 arrests had been made
this year, many of which were for
felonies and county or state prison
ers. This record also compares fa
vorably with previous years. In 1916
there were 592 arrests; In 1915 1,175,
and 1914 1,129 arrests. The record
not only proves that Bowling Green
is comparatively free from a trouble
some criminal class and is well guard
ed from such, but is considerably in
advance of other State towns of its
sizcas regards to clean police court
records. Bowling Green News.

Soldier Writes Verses.
The following poem was written by
a drafted man at Camp Zachary Tay
loras an appear to the folks back
home to write to their friends in the
There is many a lad at Camp Taylor
With a heart that is anything but
For the folks back home have grown
Have neglected or ceased to write.
Just look at the man who receives his
See the look in his eye and that
For he is the one that surely knows
There are friends back home loyal
And so, dear bunch, since I must go
Through the awful thick and thin,
The further away from dear friends
The closer they are to him.
But rest assured there's one Sammy
Who is not downcast and blue;
And no matter how far from home I
There'll be room in my heart for
There are many sad sights in this old
But the saddest, by far, I'll swear,
Is the soldier lad when the mall is
Who can't step up and answer

Wins Bride In Fire
Heroism in a flaming building won
a bride for a New York National
Guardsman. A short time ago, Leo
Hech, of the Seventy-first New York
Infantry, tried to savo several friends
in a fire in, his company's barracks.
Heck was injured. In the hospital he
was attended by Miss Maud Lymer, a
nurse, of Toronto.
The Guardsman and the nurse
were married on Monday at Hamilton,
Ont. Heck's injury grew worse, and
he went to Bellovue Hospital a few
days ago. An operation will bo per
formed and Mrs. Heck will help

Horse Skin Business.
A new business has sprung up in
this country within the last year or so,
known as the horsehide business.
There are two or three firms who
go about in all of the counties adjoin
ing and buy up all the old poor hors
es they can find from $3.00 to $7.50
each, kill them, skin them and sell
their hidesatfrom $10 to$18.Thoytako
tho bodies of these horses to some se
cluded spot, high upon the hills, where
the dogs, other animals and buzzards
consume all tho flesh off tho bones,
after which these bones are gathered
up and sold at high prices for fertiliz
This js a new business to us, but
wo understand it is very profitable,
and the day for the old, poor horse
has come, when there is a ready sale
It would bo astonishing to know
how many of theso animals are pur
chased, how many of these skins are
sold and how much money ia made.
