The Louisville Post is agin' any
government appropriation for the
construction of Boone Way. Mr
Sherley the Fifth district represen
tative in Congress irom Louisville,
however, is for Boone Way so let
the Post offer it- opposition. It
will have no effect on the result of
the movement for this important
highway. It appears that the
editor of this sheet in question is
under the belief that he carries
more brains than the following
statemen who heartily favor
governmental aid in the work:
Champ Clark, Ollie Janie?, the
Keutucky delegation in Congress
Governor MeCreary and mauy
others. The case presents a
peculiar appearance when the
.Post and Courier Journal are to
gether on an v question. Peculiar
..'indeed. Both will probably claim
to be the originators of "nothin for
the Mountains nohow" and
Mirse Henri, he (the C. T.) jes'
set back and laff" and say nothin'
more, at the articles of the little
one hoss mountain editor's efforts

the proposed national highway

Marse Henri's Daper and tht run

had dialled out a different lcind
of treatment to South Eastern
Kentucky and East Tennessee
and Virginia. The Mt. Vernon
Commercial Club is at work in
the matter to ascertain it" the
business and professional men of
.Louisville endorse the position
taken by these papers in reference
to the above proposed highway.
Fair treatment will be demanded
or. we will take up our doll rags
and play elsewhere.
Special. Bristol, Tenn., Feb. it.
Jackson Morris, of Pineville,
and James Maret, secretary of the
Commercial Club of Mt Vernon,
Ky., sent interesting information,
here as to progress toward the
building of roads in Kentucky
which are to be the connecting
links for the proposed highway
between this city and Lexington.
Mr. Morris is chairman of the
committee that is making thD
fight for a $5oo,ooo good roads
bond issue for Bell Lounty, Ky
The vote will be taken March 4,
and M r. Morris believes that the
proposition will win. Mr. Maret
has sent a map, showing the
Boone Way" from Cumberland
Gap via Middlesboro, Borbourville
Loudon and Mt. Vernon to Crab
Orchard, the distance being only
ninety-eight miles. Mr. Maret
states that a well-organized move
ment is on foot to build this road
At Crab Orchard the "Boone Way"
will connect with the pike system
of Kentucky, leading to iichmond
Danville, Louisville and Lexington.
The situation in Virginia
counties with reference to this
road is encouraging. Many promi
n;nl Virginians are back of the
movement, and there is every indi
cation that Washington, Scott and
Lee counties will issue bonds to
build their part ot the road.
Mrs. H. H Jsaacs and children
visited her mother at Leroy a part

Clay Thompson were in Mt.

It is not worth while to hate
anyone. Life is too shortto cherish
iil-xvill 01 haid thoughts. What
if that man has cheated you or
that woman has played you false
or some friend forsaken vou? Let
it all pass. What difference will
it maKe to you in a few years,
when you go hence to that un
discovered country. All who
treat you wrong will be more
sorry for it than you in your
deepest grief. A few more smiles
a few more tears, some pleasure,
much pain, a little longer hurrying
and worrying in the world, some
hasty greetings and abrupt fare
wells and life will be over, and in-
juier and injured will be laid
away and forgotten. It is not
worth while to hate each other
This is our advice and like salva-
Try it during 1913.
Hugh Miller went to the
counties of Hardin and Larue a
few days ago to purchase a lew
pure bred Duroc Jersey sows.
He has now on his Hillsdale farm,
sows sired by the great boar 'I
am Good Enough Again 35781"
which sold in J. O. Kerfoot's
Iuroc Jersey sale a short time
ao for $410.00. He has another
Gilt sired by the great breeder
"Orine Chief". These sows are
now mated to a son of Volunteer
Advance 43667, a winner at the
StPte Fair and grand champion at
Chicago International, which sold
a few weeks ago for $1500.00. He
says he has purchased another fine
sow mated to "Ccl. King' taid
by many Duroc breeders to be the
best boar south of the Ohio River.
Hugh, in our opinion is certainly
on the right road in buying
thoroughbred stock. It pays to
keep good stock of any kind on
vour farm. If you will notice
the papers, you will see that the
farmers in our blue grass counties
are at all times looking after
pure bred stock. Why can t our
farmers do this. There is nothing
in the way to keep them troui
looking after this end of the farm
business. Well bred stock ot any
kind means less trouble, less feed,
and more money for the farmers.

Just ay on a Postal Card: "Send me a copy of Stark Year Book for 1913."
When writing, also tell us how many trees, shrubs, vines, etc., you will probably
plant this season.
This Year Book is more than a mere catalogue of Stark nursery products, it is
practical, easy to understand text book for the guidance of the man who plants trees.
Our own experience of nearly 100 years, the reports of experiment stations and the
opinions of planters from all sections are condensed and reproduced for the benefit of
busy people. An encyclopedia of orchard information, containing full size color
illustrations of gloriously tinted fruits and many photographic reproductions in black
and white; also information on many subjects in which the orchardist is interested.
Hundreds of varieties of apples, pears, peach, plum, cherry, apricot, quince,
grape and all small fruits are described; weaknesses of each variety are pointed out
and good points are explained. We feel that planters should know both.
Those interested in growing fruits or flowers' or shrub or shade trees will find this
book of inestimable value; totally different from the average nurseryman's publi
cations. It is a book you will keep for reference, and one on which you can depend
being absolutely accurate. Write today for your copy.
