day and Little Business
Yesterdsy was tha first meeting of
the Fiscal Court aince the recent
order wa made calling for bi-monthly
meeting instead of monthly meet
ings. The session waa a rather mild
one and but few matters of import
ance were taken up.
The most important matter acted
upon was an order passed rescinding
a recent order of the Fiscal Court
which made the Julien road the inter-
county seat road to Cadiz. The or

It has been railed to the attention
of the Kentuckian that our article in
yesterday's issue under the caption
"Surplus Seed Corn" lias crested a
wrong impression among some of the
farmers. Our article read like this:
No seed corn will he sold out of the
county snd district except through
the Christian County Hoard of Agri
culture and no corn will be sold
units it is tested anil lifted accord
ing to governmental regulations. All
corn will be sold at $5 cr bushel
less I Of which will be deducted to
help defray the cKpenso of advertis
ing, correspondence, itc."
You will note that tho paragraph
preceeding the above in yesterday's
paper related to the advertising cam
paign being put on by the Christian
County Hoard of Agriculture. The
article should have read like this:
No seed corn will be sold on in
quires received from such adverti-
ing except through the I hristian
County Hoard of Agriculture." Noth
ing in Una plan should be construed
to mean that a man cannot sell his
corn privately and to anyone who
wishes to buy it and at any price I
they may agree upon. The plan be
ing worked out and put into effect I

and intended to help the fanner who
