lhe Proof is in Mt. Sterling,
Almost at Your Door.
The public statement of a ill. Sterling
citizen is in itself strong proof for Mt
Sterling people, but confirmation
strengthens the evidence.
Here is a Mt. Sterling citizen who tes
tified years ago that Down's Kidney Pills
relieved weak kidnejs and now states
the result was permanent. Can any
sufferer from Kidney ills a-k better
proof? You can investigate. The cass
is right at home.
Mrs. N. Trimble, 17 Jamison
"stroet, Mt. Sterling, Ky., says.: .
"All I said in 1908 praising
Doan's Kidney Pills is correct. I
am glad to conlinn it now. The
worst trouble I had was with my
kidneys. Their action was irregu
lar and the kidney secretions were
unnatural. While I did not have
much backache, I was subject to
n severe iains in my loins and often
I had nervous spells. I slept
poorly and in the morning felt nil
tired out. Finally I began using
Doan's Kidney Pills, procured at
Duerson's drug store, and I felt
better. I continued taking them
until I was well."

To reduce first the tariff on the
necessities of life, put it higher on
luxuries, repeal it on all articles
sold cheaper abroad than at home,
with a gradual reduction of th"
whole list to a revenue only basis
is the program of the Democratic
party as nromulsraled in Baltimore.
Such a program ought to, and
does, appeal to every man to whom
the increased price of food and
clothing is an appealing fact. The
Republican plan of forcing people
to pay more taxes than are neces
sary for an economically adminis
tered government is a crime which
admits of no defense since the tax
on many articles enables tho trusts
to put up prices and extort money
from tlin' people and pay too little
to the support of the government,
Tho tariff is the paramount issue
of the campaign and upon their
promises in regard to it the Demo
crats are riding to certain victory.
The interests have too long been
monopolizing control of tho gov
ernment. Tho old and exploded
claim of tho Republicans that the
consumer does not pay tho tariff
taxes no longer fools sensible peo
ple. Their pocketbooks have felt
the we'ght of the absurdity and
they will vote to change a system
of taxation which breeds monop
oly, encourages graft and enables
a fow to grow rich at tho expense
of the many. They know that a
vote for Governor Wilson and tho
Democratic candidate for Congress
assuies tho much needed change.

NOTICE TO TAXPAYERS.
The tax book's have been In my
hands for several weeks and your
taxes arc now due. Heretofore
the Sheriff has not advertised
real estate for soie for unpaid
taxes, and in this manner has
been carrjing a great many peo
ple. In the future all taxes that
are not paid within the time al
lowed by law, property will br
advertised for sale, as I must
protect my bondsmen. If your
property is listed for sale for
taxes you will have only yourself
to blame, so come in and settle
ai once. W. r CROOKS,
Sheriff Montgomery County.
Less than one week remains be
fore the election. At present there
is every indication of Democratic
success, but things can happen in
that short time to turn tho tide.
Wo do not believe it possible that
anything can turn the tide from
Wilson, but we should take noth
ing for granted. Every Democrat
who loves his country and his
party should get on tho firing line
and remain on duty until the close
of the polls November 5th.

One evening, in the palm gorden,

sat down beside Mr. Daly.
"With so much money," she said,
"the Metals make everybody look,
Binall, But," she added mysterious
ly, "I just heard something that will
surprise you. They say the Metals
have a skeleton in the family.'
"That doesn't surprise me at all,"
the young actor replied. "I saw her

M6tto: Only the Best
Carter County's Roads.
The people of Carter county aro
in tho midst of an active good
roads campaign which will bo car
ried up to tho November election.
At that time n proposition will bd
submitted to tho voters for the
issuo of bonds to the amount of
$60,000 for road improvement.
An address issued by tho Carter
County Good Roads Association
recites that in the last thirty years
tho county has spent more than
$100,000 on tho roads with no im
ment in their condition. It is ex
plained that a bond issue can be
carried with no increase in the rate
of taxation, as "the plan would be
to issuo tho bonds in installments,
issuing such amounts each year as
the court thinks could bojspent to
tho best advantage in that year,
first phying the interest, then lay
ing aside a fund each year so as to
accumul te enough to lake up (he
bondb as they mature.''
Tlu Good R-NulsAssnciation de
clare"' the road question to be the
paramount issuo before the people
of Carter county and puts the ques
tion: "Will we go on under the old!
system of shoveling $S,000 per
year into ruts to be washed out the'
following winter and spring, or
will wo bo wise enouuh to profit
by the example of our Boyd coun
ty neighbors, change our system
and enjoy good roadh?"
A system under which more
than $100,000 has been expended
in thirty years with no apprecia
ble results in highway betterment
certainly should be discarded for
ome more sensible method of pro
cedure... Tf Carter county, now
.spending $8,000 a year on her
roads, should continue tho old sys
tem for another thirty years she
will have expended about a quarter
of a million dollars, assuming there
is no increase in taxable property.
Does anyone in Carter county be
lieve tho future promises any bet
ter results than have been attained
in the past through this practice of
"shoveling 8,000 per year into
tho ruts." If there ure any voters
so credulous they may properly
vote against the bond issue. If,
on tho contrary, they want a bet
ter system that will insnre better
roads and less wasto of tho tax
payers' hard-earned money they
should follow tho advice of tho
Carter County Good Roads Asso
ciation and vote fur bonds.
Tho BEST is alwnys the cheap
