When the Confederate veterans
were passed a pension law hist
Spring, they said the law was an
insult to the old war hemes, the
tvmv the bill was frainetl, it lieiiif:
iixed fur the benefit niily of the"
needy. Tlie.y'furtliur'aul their.
"dignity would prevent all but a
small handful from even m;tkiiiL'
an application for n. pension tin',
der such stringent 'ules. Now
I'these sa nip. papers are crying,
"bring on your- pension money
;for i lie old Rebels. It is u shame
for the thousands .of them to be
. kept in suspense." Tliey say now
they were all expecting the.pen
aions, had made" their arrange
men ts thusl.v and now were he
intr surely disappointed and tl js
coinfitted b.v not receiving their
pensions in due nine.
In the selection of u Marshal
to succeed A. T, PettitJ deceased,
we hope to see a man get? thj.
place who will lobk we'll after the
illegal bringing of liquor into
this town. This is something
that interests every citizen in the
town. It is an evident fac. thut
.something is wrong when charac
ters not worth ten cents in silver
are seen to'godown-on the morn
ing train carrying a suitcase and
return in the afternoon still wag
ging the suit case. There is too
much of this going on, and a stop
should bo puU to it. at., once, aud,
it takes the right kind of town
marshal to do this.
We have studied this drinking
business until we have, .cpnjo to
the conclusion that he who makes
a drunkard should take cure of
him after ho is mado and he re
sponsible for all of his acts and
deeds, mid he who opposes the
making, of drunkards should he
remunerated ,for,all losses .incur-,
red by tliem. Their feelings' are
also as sacred as the "personal
liberty" of those who must drink.
All wo want is u squaro deal.

clared a dividend of 10. per cent.,

source of profit to nil who bundle
it, except the ones who smoke it
and chew it.

A Club Room has been opened
up in the basement room of tht

time. It we do not provide some
legitimate a'nWements that ev

One, reason for so many candi
dates for jailer in many counties
may bo nccouutod for from the
fact that beginning January 1st,
1011, tho board fee for prisoners
will be increased from fifty cents
por day to seventy-five centR per
day. This law was pussed by the
Legislature lust winter, but could
not bocomo elective until offer
the present term of ollice of the
jailors expired. Tho liicreusod
cost of food products and the
poor business of tho jailers in (lo
cal option counties is the cause
for the new law beiuu enacted.

When tho stato champions met in

feeling of Intense rivalry. Twelve of
the southern 'states that had leen push
ing tho Hoys' Com club Idea for sev
eral years, had records of 442 boys that
had grown over 100 bushels on an aero:
Alabama and Georgia each had over
100 boys with thlR record to their cred

organized for club work for tho past
eight years. It is very gratifying to bo
ibte to write that Kentucky, with an
organization of only two -years, made a
iplendld record. I-'Ifty-seven boys In
Kentucky this past season grew over
100 bushels of corn to tho acre1. How
