For the Sake of Harmony.
It seems that Chump Clark is
oinu: to run away with the Dem
ocratic nomination for President.
Including Bryan there are five
Democratic candidates in t lie
field and Olark is our fourth
hoice. Thus you can see the
Times is not much for Olark get
ting the nomination. There are,
ue believe, far more Democrats
in Kentucky for Wilson than
there are for Clark, but the Wil

tages Clark has over him, and re
alizing that Clark is undoubted
ly the choice of the majority who
will name the nominee, it is best
for them to acquiesce and let the
will of the majority prevail in a
While, as above stated, the
Times is for another candidate,
as are others, the mention of this
has brought, from the boisterous
bully "Oily Jeems", and the
Courier-Journal words of con
demnation upon every Democrat
in the State who. fails to see as
they do. For the sake of liar
inoiiy it seems that the aforeseen
lesult will be allowed to inate
(iilize without a light, but for
;.;ike of harmony alone is the fight
discontinued, and not from the
M'are of the vicious and wicked
pithots of some of the leaders of
the gentlemanly Speaker's sup
porters. Clark is altogether
wholesome and far more so than
the Boss Senator-elect who is
championing his cause in Ken
tucky. In his travels about the coun
try Mr. Roosevelt never loses an
opportunity to tell farmers of
liis'aii'ectituiate regard for them.
During his term in the White
House u Chicago newspaper ar
tist drew a picture of u farmer
fitting before a fireplace, with
bis shoes oil', reading one of the
iJoosevelt messages. This pict
ure was called: ''His favorite
author," and Mr. Roosevelt of
f 111 said it was the best picture
lie over saw.
The liars ester trust, which an
nually take? millions of dollars
from the farmers of thiscouutry,
cells binders in Russia and South
America for .fiHl, and the Aineri.
can farmer pays the trust $120
for the Hume hinder. While he
was president auetl'ort wus start
ed to break up this trust, and
Mr. Roosevelt secretly suppress
ed' that ellort. lie ordered his
attorney general tint to start suit
against the one I rust which more
than all others combined robs
and plunders the farmer.
George W. I'erkins, organizer
of this harvester trust, is putting
up the money lor Mr. Roosevelt's
present campaign. ,
Estill county seems to be try
ing to lead us in the matter of
good roads. At a recent meet
ing of the fiscal court in that,
county they purchnsed a road
grading machine for each magis
terial distvict. The Times sug
gest that as an oll'set Powell
have one road drag made and
placed in each road order. They
are inexpensive and all authori
ties say they are the best ma
chine made for dirt roads, either
for grading or compacting the
road bed. These machines should
be used in the Spring of the year
and best of all after each rain
when it is too wet for farmers to
work in their fields. Of course
the road drag will not do all the
work us the mud holes and low
places must be filled, but once
started the drug will keep the
roid in shape where there is
nothing to contend with but dirt.
Of course rocky and excessively
iiu r row strips will have to othei
wise be repaired.

Taft men declare that ti.eir
ca ndidate will be nominated on
the first ballot and that hence
they have no fear of i "Dark
Horse". But a wild broncho is
something else again.
If Taft is as bad as Roosevelt
says, it would not be safe to trust,
the Colonel to "pick out" any
more officials for us.
