With this i68uo tho Times en
ters its sixteenth volume, having
rounded out nn existence of fif
teon.years. The paper is not
what wo would like to make, but
it seeems the best to possibly
make and keep a going in n small
town and county like Clay City
and Powell. In the whole coun
ty thore are but 1,848 polls and
the Times had a subscription list
equal to more than half this num
ber, so 'when we tako into consid
eration the small territory to
work ill, we think that we should
not be discouraged as we cannot
alter these conditions and circum
stances. We hope to see busi
ness with the Times this year an
improvement over what it was in
1910, butitremaiiiB with our sub
scribers, those who should be on
our list and our advertising pa
trons to make this possible. If
the public will give us a more
generous patronage, we will make
a most- liberal improvement in

Wo would bo glad to see Ken
tucky appropriate annually a
minimum of n million of dollars,
to he added to the expenditures
of the counties of the State in
the construct. on of good roads,
in addition to the local expendi
tures. In fact, we would be
gladderJo see five millions than
we would one million. There
could be no wiser policy inaugu
rated by tho State than the poli
cy of expending whatever sums
necessary to improve the roads,
to aid every county in the State
in constructing good county roads
and further to aid every county
in the State more than the State
