By The Marion Bank From
Commissioner of Agriculture,
J. W. Newman
Marion Bank, Marion, Ky.
You have, no duobt, read of
he death at Washington, D. C.
f Lester Bryant, Boy Champion
Corn Grower of Kentucky. He
grew 148 bu. 55 lbs. on one acre
. at the least cost price of any boy
in the Jnited States. His untimely
death is an irreparable loss
to his family, his friends, and
the agricultural interests of the
State. The Department of Agri
culture of Kentucky wishes to
see erected to his memory an
appropriate monument. To this
end we have purchased the corn
he grew upon this acre, from
which 50 bu. will be sold at $1.
per ear, delivered by Parcels
Post to the purchaser. Will you
aid is this undertaking by selling
some ears of this corn, sending
us the names and addresses
of purchasers, and the money
you receive for same? If we can
put this corn an ear at a place
throughout the State, the Lester
Bryant strain of corn will be one
monument to him, and a granite
shaft at Bowling Greon will be
another. Any assistance you
can render will be appreciated.
No one gets a cent out of raising
this money, as the service is a
voluntary one. Each dollar received
will be deposited tirtlrc
Lester Bryant Monument Fund,
Farmers Bank, Frankfort, Ky.
Send the money direct to the department
of Agriculture, at
Frankfort, and be sure the name
and Post-office address of
is given in order to insure
delivery of corn.
Thanking you for your
ation in this project, I beg to remain,
Yours Very truly,

Judge Nunn Improved.
Judge T. J. Nunn's friends

delighted to see him on the
streets Thursday, he having just
arrived from Frankfort, making
the trip unattended. As he had
only recently returned from St.

thought to be quite ill, it was of
course gratifying to, the folks
here at' his old home to see and
know that he was able to travel
alone and looking quite well.

Sunday School Teachers
,what makes a successful Sunday
School? There is but one
answer, the teacher, whose duty
it is to import bible knowledge
and therefore mold character in
the right manner. If this is the
teacher's duty. Are we prepared
for such work? If not, are we
willing to make use of opportunities
afforded us for better preparation?
Doubtless the majority of
teachers feel that they would
like to give their pupils a system
atic and connected knowledge of
the bible this cannot be done by
studying the Lesson Helps only
but a great many fear to begin,
because they have not had the
proper training themselves and
are not sure what steps to take.
"Training for Service" will
help any one who studies the
work closely. Its aim is to give
plans, to enable the teacher to
get and hold the general sweep
of bible history. It also enables
him to learn something of child
nature, not only will it berefit
the teacher but it will give the
pupil a clearer understanding of
the bible than he has ever had.
This work is both practical and
helpful; besides, bible study
possesses a new charm when
There is to be an effort made
by the Sunday School workers to
organize a Teacher's Training
Class in every school in the
county. All who are interested
in Sunday School work, please
think over this matter carefully
and prayerfully and when you are
asked to help, we hope you will
have decided you owe it to your
self and your school to ioin a

ES B. M'CREARY
Not Yet Ready to Announce His
Candidacy For The United
States Senate, But
He May Run.
Governor James B. McCreary
passed through Lexington yesterday
morning at 11:40 o'clock
over the Chesapeake & Ohio
railway, enroute from Frankfort
to Washington to attend the inauguration
Wilson. His last statement before
his train pulled out of the
Lexington Union Station was
that he has not yet decided
whether he will become a candidate
for the United States
During the ten minutes his
train waited here, Governor McCreary
and his secretary, Francis
B. Douglas, the only person
accompanying the Governor,
talked with several friends who
met the tram at the station.
Asked by a representative of
The Herald if he had decided to
announce his candidacy for the
United States Senate, Governor-McCreary
"No, I have not decided. The
fact is that I have been so busy
making appointments and attending
to other business that I
have not had time to think about
my own political affairs."
"It's been a long time since I "
saw a democrat inaugurated
President of the United States,"
Governor McCreary said, "and I
want to get to Washington in
time to attend all of the ceremonies.
I will be back at my
office in the Capital the latter
part of next week."
The Governor looked to be in
his usual good health, and moved
about so actively that his regret
at the elimination of the
inaugural ball might easily be
imagined. Lexington Herald,
VV. R. Lanham for Jailer.
Elsewhere in these columns
will be found the announcement
of Wm. R. Lanham for Jailer of
this county. Mr. Lanham has
lived three miles west of Marion
for thirty odd years and is an
honest, reliable farmer. He is
related to the Congers and
as well as the large Lanham
family, and is liked by
everybody who knows him, and
it is said he will poll a heavy
vote. He asks the support; of
his neighbors and the voters in
all parts of the county, on his
record. He has never scratched
the ticket, but always voted the
strait Democratic ticket.
