six inches of the beautiful white

A Word to the Young Men.
Youb? man of Clay City and
Powell c ounty if you see a peroid
of idle.time staring you in the
face, fltbf) for a moment and look
around.you. See who your idle
companions will be, then look a
little further and see who the
employe'd will be. Then decide
with which aggregation you de
sire to cast your lot. You will nee
theyouhgmnn who is industrious
and qualified for business employ
ed, but at the same time you will
find the;; indolent and aimless
youths loafing and complaining
of nothing to do. Wneu you find
this to be the case, as you are
sure to f&d it, make a decision
that youjwill in the future be one
of boys itith a job, or better still,
have a bfsiness of your own. If
your arrftitions lead you to some
occupation or. business for which
you real io you are not' nowqual-
fy yourself for that business.
The writer believes that no person
should try to follow any occupa
tion or business 6imply for the
money there is iu the job. The
individual should have an inter
est iu aud a love for their busi
ness, occupation or profession,
aud we further believe that with
out a love for your business and
a deep interest in the same, noth
ing but failure awaits you. If
you are oue of that large number
that lids uo choice of occupation,
remember that you must choose
something sooner or later, aud
settle upon that oue thing or be
classed as a loafer or common
laborer. In such cases we would
advise the undecided vounsr char
acters to follow soinethiug uutilj
they have secured enough money
to go to some good school like the
Stautou College and proceed to
better equip themselves for some
thing they may later choose to
follow, and if they never find an
occupation to follow, as a loafer
they will find some consolation in
being an educated loafer and at
the same time have an accom
plishment of which you willl be
proud. The chanceSj however,
are that with an education you
will uever be a loafer, as but few
of this kind can be found.

Citizens in that section of Clark
county through which the L. &
N. railroad is building are out
speken in their censure for the
way the company has, in a meas

a well-known citizen, was driv
ing with his wife from Winches
ter when they met some of 'the
machinery of the company. They
cautiously drove to one side of
the pike, it is alleged, but for the
want of the proper precaution on
the part of the operators of the
machinery, his horse became
frightened and overturned the
buggy, breaking Mr. Todd's col
lar bone and slightly iujuring

of this county and has many rel
