IN MEMORY OF LITTLE
ELMER POWELL ROSE.
Friday, Nov. 1st at 1 :!M) a. m.
the dentil nnirel visited the home
of Mr. and Mrs. D. li. Rose, Jr ,
of tliis city, and carried their lit
tle darling hoy to that Heavenly
Home, his soul taking i t h (light to
the God who gave it. He.leaves
a father, mother, many relatives
and friends to mourn his loss.
Little Elmer was ouch a bright
child and a fovorite of all who
knew him. All that loving ones
could do was done, but the Fath
er had a vacaut place and He
took him to be a sweet little an
gel. "The Lord giveth and the
Lord Jtaketh away ; blessed be the
name ot the Lord."
Little Elmer, though they miss
you in your home, you will be
standing at the pearly gates of
Heaved, beckoning loved ones to
' inee't.y'ou there, v -
He was seven months and two
days old.
Weep not, dear ones, as those
that have no hope, for little El
mer is safe in the arms of Jesus,
for He said, "Suffer little chil
dren to come unto me, for of such
is the kingdom of Heaven."
His little body was laid to -rest
in the local cemetery. Sleep on
little one in your snow white
caBket. The Father is caring
fyr thee, though your body is ly-

Work (jetting Scarce.
Work for laboring men is get
ting scarce in and afound Olay
City just now. The planing mill
of Swann-Day Lumber Company
is closed down, the hogshead fac
tory is also up with orders and is
not. working now, and no tides
have come to bring logs to the
big saw mill. Corn husking is a
bout over and other farm work is
very slack as is usual at this sea
son of the year. There are many
laborers who have good ste.tdy
jobsand areiitl-riglit, but. to the
large majority of them the pineh
is in sight, unless more work is
opened up, which will be the
case soon as a log tide comes.
Many have gone to the new rail
road to work, but as many more
will not do so on account of the
danger attached to this kind of
work. So many have been killed
and injured on the new railroad
construction as to cause some to
remark they would rather risk
their lives in a lighting army tin n
on the railroad works.

Enormous Corn Crop.
' WJiile corn crops in Powell
county on rivev farms are not so
I good as they were last year, the
crop as a whole in the county is
far above last, years yield, occa
sioned by an average yield on
the bottom land and far above
the average yield on the upland.
More than one thousand b.irrels
of corn has been raised on many
farms of the county. This is
some corn for powell county
farms, and it sounds good to u .
No persons or .stock need suffer
for feed if au equitable division
can be made. The average yield
of corn per acre for this state is
80 bushels, and that of Iowa is
forty-five bushels. Iowa leads
all other states. Powell county
will surpass -the average yield of
Kentucky by several bushels,
and willnot-fall far short of Iowa.
It is nothingitrncommon to see a
field in - this eminty ' upon which
CO and 75 bushels per acre have
been grown and these are big
yields too. One farm boy under
adverse circumstances has grown
eghty-nine bushels .of corn upon
one acre. This was upon natu
rally thin upland. Powell is far
from being the worst county in
the state, though many of her
people may think so and migrate
to states that do not grow corn
like we do. Our land when prop
erly farmed will also grow oats,
wheat, rye and grass. The great
est trouble with the county is
that we are slow to learn what
we can best do with our land,
and fail to practice the slogan.
"Keen vour farm now and in a
few years it will keep you."!
Successful farming is in growing
big crops and at the 6ame time
making your laud better all the
while. This is being done by
some few farmers in Powell
county today and should be done
by all of them.
Clark county bus become a
(armed over the sudden outbreak
of lawlessness in her bounds.
Murders, killings and assassina
tions are of frequent occurrence
of late it seems in that good old
couutv. Too much booze and too
much railroading.

Announces for U. S. Senate.
Governor Beckham has an
nounced for the United States
Senate to succeed Senator Brad
ley. There is opposition to the
Governor and an effort will be
made to get a candidate to op
pose him, but this is hardly
probable as the Governor is too
strong. He could have been in
the Senate today iustea d of Brad
ley had he compromised with
the whiskey ring, and they are
fighting him now.
