Blue Grass League
Puts Blanton At Head
Popular Frankfort "faiT Chosen
President By Unanimous
At the meeting of tho directors
of tho Blue Grass League, held in
tho offices of the Lexington Base
ball Club Thursdny nfternoon,
Albert Blanton, of Frankfort, was
selected President of tho Blue
Grass League in 1913, succeeding
William Neal,'of Louisville, who
resigned as President of the
league when ho was elected gen
eral Secretary of tho Louisville
Association club several months
ugo, but kindly consented to hold
on until proper consideration could
be given to his successor.
At the meeting the Lexington
club was represented by Messrs.
Thomas Sheets and Hogan Yan
cey; Maysvillo by Messrs. Thos.
Russell and T. M. Summers, and
Frankfort by Mr. A. B. Coleman.
The other three clubs Richmond,
Mt. Sterling and Paris, did not
have representatives present, but
sent by telegraph their votes for
Mr. Blanton, making the election
unanimous. Business prossu re
was given as reasons for inability
Mr. Blanton was not present to
take charge of the ceremonies
after his election and tho meeting
was adjourned subject to his JcaH.
He will probably call a meeting
within the next two weeks for the
purpose of further completing the
organization for tho coming year.
Among the business matters to
come up at the next meeting will
be the election of a treasurer to
act with Mr. Blanton in the admin
istration of the affairs of the
league, the selection of the official
ball, the determination of the ex
act extent and size of the circuit,
the posting of guarantees by the
various clubs, and the beginning
of ariangements for the schedule.
Mr. Blanton is a well-known
business man of Frankfort and
was popular all around the circuit
last year. He is an ardent fan

New Five Cent Coins Coming.
The design of the new nickel,
the creation of J. E. Fraser, the
artist of New York, Jhas been ac
cepted by Secretary MacVengh, of
the Treasury Department, to re
place the 5-cent piece that has
been in circulation for many years.
Within a week, George E. Roberts
director of the mint will order its
coinage and it probably will bo in
circulation shortly after February
1. On one side of the, new coin
is tho reproduction of the head of
an Indian. At the top is the word
"Liberty," and at the bottom is
the year 1913. On the other side
appears the figure of a buffalo,
closely associated with the history
of the red man, and tho denomina
tion of the coin, "5 cents." The
design is severely simple, and is
regarded by Treasury officials as
ono of the most artistic pieces of
money ever turned out.
HOW TO RESIST
Chronic Coughs and Colds.
strong, vigorous men and women
hardly ever catch cold; it's only when
the system Is run down and vitality
low that colds and .coughs get a toot
hold. Now Isn't it reasonable that tho
right way to cure a cough Is to build
up your strength again?
Mrs. Olivia Parham, of East Dur
ham, N, C, says: "I took Vinol for a
chronic cough which had lasted two
years, and tho cough not only disap
peared, but it built up my. strength
Tho reason Vinol Is so efficacious In
such cases Is because It contains In a
delicious concentrated form all tho
medicinal curative elements of cod
liver oil, with tonic, blood-bulldlng
Chronic coughs and colds yield to
Vinol because it builds up tho weak
ened, run-down system.
Ton can get your money back any
time If Vinol does not do all we say.

The year closed with tho cost of
living at about the highest mark
in a quarter of a century. Tho
highest point reached in the year
was very near ono hundred per
cont.-ovcr the lowest point reach
ed in the lowest year within this
generation. That was 1896. But
this is a little misleading. The
average for tho last three years
has been only about fifty per cent,
higher than the average of tho
three lowest years, from 1895 to
1897. But fifty per cent, means
u good deal to tho man with a near
ly fixed wage. It means, for ex
ample, that an income of $600 a
year fifteen years ago was as good
as an income of $900 a year now.
Actually, there was far more sav
ing then, for a period of rapidly
rising prices always means an era
of wild speculation and extrava
gant ways of living. Thrift is at
a discount. This is the moral
aspect of an inflated and depreciat
ing currency, for an inflated and
depreciating currency is exactly
what rising prices mean, and noth
ing more. Many able men thought
in the first Bryan campaign for
example, that a cold standard
would give us a dollar of stable
value, This it has utterly faile'd
to do. Collier's Weekly.

NO CARD PLAYING IN CHILE
Woman Visitor to America From That
Country Shocked at the Cus
A woman who is a native of Chile
was talking recently about the diffi
culty she had in accustoming herself
to card playing among women when
she came to this country.
"In Chile card playing among
women is undreamed of. Perhaps it
is not too mUch to say that a Chilean
would no more play cards than a
New York woman would enter a
Broadway saloon. It isn't that it is
exactly, or wholly, a matter of mor
als with us. It just isn't the tiling
to do. It is not conventional. When
I came to New York I brought my
daughter-in-law with me, a Chilean
girl. She and I were both horribly
shocked to receive an invitation to a
bridge party in the day time. It was
too much for us and we declined,"
6aya the New York Post. "Other
similar invitations came, and kept
coming. Finally, our curiosity got
the best of us and we went to one of
these affaire. Even after we got over
our sense of outraged convention tho
whole thing seemed curious to us.
The funniest sight of all wa3 the
women with little tags on them, as
if marked 'by fast express,' or run
ning up to another woman with a lit
tle card to be 'punched.' Finally, we
got sufficiently accustomed to 'take a
hapd,' but even yet I never do it
without a covert feeling that I am
putting myself beyond the pale."

One evening Mrs. S. had retired,
and I was busy writing when It struck
mo a glass of Ice water would be pal
atable. Bo I took the candle and a
pitcher and went down to the pump.
Our pump is in the kitchen. A coun
try pump in the kitchen Is more con
venient, but a well with buckets is cer
tainly most picturesque. Unfortunate
ly our well water has not been sweet
since It was cleaned out.
First I hnd to open a bolted door
that lets you into the basement hall,
and then I went to the kitchen door,
which proved to be locked. Then I re
membered that our girl always car
ried the key to bed with her nnd slept
with It under her pillow. Then I re
traced my steps, bolted the basement
door and went up into the dining room
As Is always the case, I found when T
could not get any water I was thirstier
than I supposed I was. Then 1
thought I would wnke our girl up.
Then I concluded not to do It. Then
I thought of the well, but I gave thnt
up on account of Its flavor. Then I
opened the closet doors. There was no
wnter there. Then I thought of tho
dumb waiter! The novelty of the Idea
made me smile. I took out two of the
movable shelves, stood the pitcher on
the bottom of the dumb waiter, got In
myself, with the lamp, let myself down
until I supposed I was within n foot
of the floor below nnd then let go.
We came down so suddenly thnt I
was shot out of the apparatus as if It
had been a cntnpult. It broke the
pitcher, extinguished the lamp and
landed me in the middle of the kitchen
at midnight, with no Are nnd the air
not much above the zero point. The
truth is I had miscalculated the dis
tance of the descent Instead of falling
one foot, I had fallen Ave. My first
impulse was to ascend by the way I
came down, but I found that imprac
ticable. Then I tried the kitchen door.
It was locked. I tried to force It open.
It was made of two inch stuff and held
its own. Then I hoisted a window,
and there were the rigid iron bars. If
I ever felt nngry nt anybody it was at
myself for putting up those bars to
please Mrs. Spnrrowgrnv. I put them
up not to keep people In, but to keep

Uurlers nnd looked nt the sky. Not a

shouted until I wns hoarse and ruined
our pieserving kettle with the poker.
That brought our dogs out in full bark.
and between us we made the night
hideous. Then I thought I heard a
voice and listened. It was Mrs. Spar
rowgrass calling to me f loin the top
of the staircase. 1 tried to make her
hear me, but the Infernal dogs united
with howl and growl and bark, so as
to drown my voice, which is naturally
plaintive and tender. Besides, there
wore two bolted doors nnd double deaf
ened floors between us. How could she

Mr. Sparrowgrass called once or
twice and then got frightened. The

our neighbor, alieady wide awake. He
came to the rescue with a bull terrier,
