Bird Law Fxpires.
Tlio bird law expires tomorrow
when it will bo lawful to kill
quail, rabbits with aura ml eh.
It. will be hard for sonic to come
under the new law, but as the
penalty is so heavy for violating
it it will have great eil'ect. He
member you must hnve license
to hunt if you go on any lands
other than your own or your
neighbors farm or land that you
may have leased or -rented. Then
you must have a written permis
sion from such land owners and
have it in your pocket or you can
be fined. The law is a good one
and all should join in its enforce
ment. It is a protection for
sportsmen, the land owner and
the birds. The only one that can
object is the irresponsible per
sons who over indulge in hunt
ing in the winter for the profit of
selling the gume.

More Work and Less Talk.
A contemporary very truthful
ly says that when it comes to
talking good roads', Kentucky
can hold her own in any com
pany, "but when it comes to
building theiii there is another
story to tell." This is only too
tine. If oratory would build
roads, then we should havenolack
of first-class thorouhg-fares any
where from the mouth of Sandy
to Mill' Point. Keally, we ought
ut do less talking and more build
ing. This thing of holding good
road conventions will shortly de
velop into a farce unless we do
something to bring about some
or give up the gun.
" Arbor Day.
Wednesday was Arbor day but
if it were very religiously observ
ed in this county we failed to
learn of it. The only shortage of
trees in Powell county is fruit
trees. There should be more
orchards in the county and what
are here should be improved by
more and better trees, and bet
ter care taken of them. Four
acres in fruit trees well selected
and well cared for is a better
livinir than the average farmer
- - - c - - ,
is making on the aerage four
hundred acres i.f upland in the
county. We hope our readers
will give this question some Be
rious.ithoughtr and decide to put
mitainother orchard this fall

they had bought up over the

Greatest Corn Crop.
The greatest.corn crop in the
nation's history - is reported by
the Department, of .Agriculture of
the United States. The yield of
the various states is also given
out. Kentucky is accredited
with an average yield of 0.4
bushels per ncre.which is greater
than any of her" sister Southern
states. The next nearest state
being Tennesseev liich has a yield
of 20 bushels. Virginia comes
next with a yield of 2i bushels,
Texas next withal bushels, then
Oklahoma with'. IS. 7, or more
than one-third f less than Ken
tucky. This is . the government's
report and not'ouis. Still there
are thousands leaving Kentucky
every year and moving to states
where crops are much less than
in Kentucky f?

How About Powell.
Hard ill county has shipped 18,
000 sheep to the Louisville mar
ket this year, representing an
aggregate of some $00,000, and
has about $70,000 worth of sheep
left wherewith to produce next
year's crop. Evidently there will
be plenty of spring lunibs in
Hardin county if the dogs will
only permit the sheep to carry
on there domestic affairs with
out molestation. Hardin county
is well adapted to sheep raising
ami her farmers are to be congrat
ulated on knowing a good thing
when they see it. There are some
other counties in Kentucky which
are quiet as well. adapted to the
industry, but have very few-
sheep. Possibly they prefer to
raise dogs. State Journal.
