J. E. Burgher,
Entered as second-class mail mat
ter nt tho Post Office at Clay City,
Ky., under tbo Act of Congress of
"March 3, 1879.
A HOME-MADE PAPER.
THURSDAY, AUGUST 17, 1910,
Wc tire advised by a dispatch
from Frankfort that "the dogs of
the Slate have added S15.919.48 to
the fund for the education of chil
dren in Kentucky. Last year the
dogs contributed 39,022.10 fortius
purpose. Pike county heads the
dog tax list, paying into the State
Treasury 2,409.02 from this source.
Boyle county collected but S5.31 in
dog taxes. Many of the best coun
ties of the State arc entirely with?
out dogs, according to the records
in the State Auditor's office. Not
ably among these are Fayette,
Franklin, Bourbon, Clark, Bath,
Fleming, Fulton, Grunt, Harrison,
Lincoln, Madison, Mason, Mont
gomery, Nicholas, Oldham, Owen,
Robertson, Rockcastle, Scott, Spen
cer, Warren, Washington and Web
Powell continues to pay a big
dog tax, her honest citizens not yet
having learned how to dodge it.
The most of us must continue to
pay a tax out of proportion to our
wealth on account of the 20 per
cent raise by the State, because
some few persons in the county suc
ceed in out-witting the Board of
Supervisors in their annual sittings.
We must do better than this in
the future. We don'jt mean that
we must dishonestly fail to report
our dogs, but that our county Su
pervisors must use the same system
of ascertaining where raises should
be made on individuals as the State
now uses against the counties.
such n school. Few other counties
like Powell arc so blest.
Stanton College is one of the in
stitutions of the county for which
it should be exceedingly proud
And to think that it cost the coun
ty nothing; it being n present hand
ed to us. All people of the county
should remember our home school
when they prepare to send their
children to college. It is the equal
of any school in the work it does,
besides being a home school which
duty binds you to patronize.
The last session of the Legisla
ture passed a law that no insur
ance rates should he raised in this
state for two yoars. Ihe insur
ance companies then agreed to this
because of fear from the impending
danger of more drastic legislation.
They arc now trying to crawfish by
interpreting the meaning of the
wording of the law different from
what it seems to be, and the advice
of Attorney General Logan is sought
before the State Rating Board will
grant an increase asked for.
Every company that tries to "rc
nig" should be driven from the
State and never allowed to return.
Their principles are too bad for
If all reports coming to us are
true, Natural Bridge has become a
regular market for the sale of li
quor on Sundays. Now we do not
mean to say that there arc houses
nt this place openly selling, but it is
claimed that a large quantity of
booze each Sunday goes up on these
the woods thereabouts. It is not
charged that the railroad company
is illegally shipping liquor to this
point on Sundays to be sold, but it
is stated that certain parties appear
there on Sundays with immense
quantities of liquor which is hal
tered and sold, too often causing
disturbance in what would other
wise bo a peaceable crowd.
The Times is not to dictate how
this nuisance is to be suppressed,
but it should bo stopped, and that
without delay. It is an easy mat
ter for persons to bring a supply of
liquor on the train in suit cases,
and dispose of it on the grounds,
and got away on the evening train
Ordinary methods will not catch
the trained trixsters, it seems. Then
extraordinary efforts should be
brought into use to catch the de
bauchers of character.
A well-known writer has truly
said one-half the failures of life
are caused by beginning at
the top of the ladder, instead of
the bottom round. We cannot
stand still, wc must either go up
or down. If we begin at the top
to move, we must conio down,
and we always do. Powell coun
ty has had too much experience
of this kind, and too much "bor
ing with a big augur" too. The
industrious man who has learned
how tolive within his mean?, and
has taught his family the same
traits, will seldom come to want,
whatever conditions may be.
A prize was offered last week at
tlie Pcrryville fair for the prettiest
girl. As a result of such contest
the drug stores, it is claimed, sold
out their complete stock of paints
and powders, while ribbon counters
were entirely stripped. Many
of the fair ones did not get to enter
on account of being unable to get
decorating material. The one win
ning the prize happened to he a
girl who braved an entrance after
it is bootlegged in;,alinS to get the necessary . trim
ming material on account oi tne
supply being exhausted by others.

As "Horticulture" is one of the

to say nothing of Poultry wc may
feci that our Fred has fared fine at

It is believed that the Sheriff did
not do a "land office business" in
collecting tax in this city Saturday
and at Vaughn's Mill Monday from
the number of unused receipts he
carried back to Stanton. The tax
payers are willing to pay their taxes
alright for everything but the road
bond tax. They will not hesitate
to pay this tax when the roads
traveled by the masses of the coun
ty receive any attention.
