J. E, Burgher,
Entered as second-class mail mat

Ky., under tho Act of Congress of
March 3, 1879.
A HOME-MADE PAPER.
THURSDAY, SEPT. 14, 1010.
The poor train accommodations
and the poor mail service in the
afternoon seems to be getting on
tho nerves of nil tho business
men of Clay City, Stanton and
the traveling public. Country
people going from L.& E. sta
tions to Winchester, Mt. Sterling
and Lexington are getting tired
of having to go home in the dark
after getting off the night trains
that used to come early enough
in the afternoon to get home be
Tho L. & N. has a combination
service over the W. & I. and L.
& E. that rightly belongs to the
L. it E. alone. This neglect of
public service was made possible
when theL. & N. was allowed by
the State authorities to illegally
acquire the L. & E. We predict
ed then that such service would
be imposed upon the people when
over it was to theL. & N.'s ad
vantage to do so. Give a rail
road an inch and thoy will take
a mile. Wo are entitled to as
good service today as we had ton
years ago, but we ara not getting
mania after entering the war,
like all tho other lighting nations,
was to stop the sale of liquor,
which of course means to stop
drinking it. The countries have
learned that men cannot, do good
fighting, scientifically, full of li
quor. In this country tho boys
do most of their fighting after
gotting tanked up on liquor. But,
then our boys kill by retail, while
across the ocean thoy purpose to
murder by the wholesale, and
only the leaders need to prop
their "spirits up by putting spir
its down." The sober man must
do the real fighting, since the in
toxicated man in the army, as in
tho country, is too apt to kill his
best friend because it comes han
dy, and it is often his idea more
to do plain killing, regardless of
who it is, instead of slaying the
If tho wurring nations will keep
liquor away from them after the
close of the war as sacredly as
they are during the war, the cost
of the war at its tremendous toll
of property and blood, will be an
insignificant consideration, and
though appalling as it is, we
should envy the day that kept
this country from the wrangle.
But, it is not the purpose of the
war to everlastingly stop the use
of liquor. A great pity that it

.'The day at Winchester Satur
day was a big event. Thousands
were fed and entertained. Vice;
ITosident Marshall and select
others were specially entertained
by private dinner. The Demo,
crat of that city refers to the
special dinner as a "little error",
and truly it was.. Tho Demo
cratic party has always been the
party of tho common people, and
ic win continue to be, regardless
of Jhe blunders made by a few of
jt8 members occasionally. Tho
Times believes that no one man
is better than another any fur.

Under all events the day at

There is considerable optosition
to consolidation of school dis
tricts and building larger 6ohoo
houses on account of tho bad
roads to travel in tho winter
months, and on account of the
necessity to keep tho school tax
in the county to the present Inch
limit. If the people will first
ftnd out how the candidates for
trustees "stand on the proposition
and vote only for those who are
for a continuation of accessible
schools and a lower tax, the ques
tion will bo solved.
