Great Man Kcmrcd,
Quite a distirguised complement
and honor was shown Bishop
Hendrix of Kansas city, Mo..
when he was chosen to preside
over the First quadrennial con-
ye ition of th Federal Council
churches of Chrht in
in wnicn 6i denominations were
represented when it convened at
Chicago month. Bishop
Hendrix presided at the conference
of the M. E. Church south
in this city a few years ago, and
also visited us during the dedication
exercises at the New M
E Church and is remembered as
one of the brainiest men who has
ever been the guest of our people.
Besides being a polished gentleman
he is a lovable character
and a scholarly diplomat.
Should Keep Name in Paper.
No business man in any town
should allow a newspaper published
in his town to go without
his name mention somewhere in
its columns. This applies to all
kinds of business stores
dry goods stores, groceries, furniture
dealers, professional men,
and in fact a'l clashes of business
men. This does not mean that
you should have a whole or a
half or even aquaiterpagc ad.
in every issue of the paper but
your name and business should
be mentioned if you do not use
more than a two line space. A
stranger picking up a newspaper
should be able to tell just what
business is represented in a town
bv looking at the business men
tioned in the paper. This is the
best possible town advertising.
The man who does not advertise
his business does an injustice to
himself and his town. He is the
man who expects the paper to do
most of the boosting for his
town. The man who insists on
sharing the business that comes
to a town but refuses to advertise
his business is not doing his
srnre of the boosting. The life
of any town depends upon the
live, wideawake and liberal business
men it. Corydon Republican.

generous hospitality so lavishly
dispensed and left wishing Uncle
Dave many happy returns of his

How To Glass Tobacco. .
The question has been asked
me numerous of times "how to
class unsold tobacco," will say,
I would put tobacco in three
classes leaf, lugs and trash.
Give the low grades the benefit
of all doubts. Tie in small, neat
hands, say, 6 to 10 leaves to the
hand, keep length tied fceperate
whether you bulk it seperate or
not. In this way you catch
every buyer. There are some
buyers, who wont buy tobacco
in two classes or large hands,
but all will buy in three classes
tied in neat hands.
