JUDGE ALLIE W. YOUNG.
Governor Jas. B. McCrcnr.v lms appointed Judge Allie W. Young
to president n special term of the Breathitt Circuit Court which be
gan Monda.v, owing to the absence of the regular presidim.' Judire D.
B. Red wine, who is ill in Florida. In lookinir over the various judres
in the Commonwealth our worthy Governor could not have selected a
better man to preside over the Breathitt court, where so many crimi
nal caes are to be tried, for Judge Young is recognized as one of
the best judges of criminal law in the State and it is expected that
this term of the court ill be an epoch-making one. The good people
of Breathitt have gotten together now and the law-breaker must go.
THE STATE PRIMARY LAW.
As the new State Primary Law is misunderstood by so many people
we will briefly explain its important features.
All candidates of every party for any State, county, district or
city office, to be filled by popular vote, must be selected in this pri
mary. All parties nominate on the same day, the first Saturday in
August. Having cast more than twenty per cent, of the vote in the
last Presidential election, we have three recognized political parties
the Democratic, Republican and Progressive. Four oliicers for each
precinct are selected by the County Election Commissioners as if it
were a regular November election. A candidate to have his name 1
placed on the ballot for a county office must file a petition with the
County Cierk not later than thirty ua.vs before the election containing
not less than three per cent, of the voters of his party in each precinct
of the county. In order that no canJidate can "freeze out" his oppo
nents the law prohibits more than ten per cent, to be filed by any one
candidate. No candidate tan circulate his petition more than ninety
days before the election and every voter signing a petition must give
his post office address and the date upon which he signed same. AH
this is not "red tape," as some choose to call it, but is intended to

We recently saw a cartoon which reminded us of several local
characters. It was a picture of a lazy fellow, sitting near a stove,
where he said he had been patiently waiting ever since the election for
prosperity to make its appearance. This is the case with many. Op
portunity likes to be discovered, after a hard search. If you want
prosperity, look for it. Don't be afraid of a little work in order to
find it. Remember one will rust out long before he will wear out.
The daily newspapers tell us that an "Anti-cigarette crusade is
to be inaugurated in the public schools of Lexington." This should
also be done in Mt. Sterling, where children from six to fifteen years
of age can almost daily be seen smoking on their way to and- from
school and some of the older ones puff at a pipe as aptly as their

Mr. James It. Majiowan, owner
of Elmwood Stock Farm, has an
nounced that he will ship to the
Lexington Horse Sales this month
41 head of his fine bred stock,
among them beinj: a number of
younusters by his famous stallion
J. Mnleilni Forbes (4)2:08, besides
a number of splendidly bred brood
marcs, one the dam of the Cham
pion Frank Perry, one a tull sis
ter to Todd, so that it can be seen
that his horses will be amoni; the
very best offered at the sale. Mr.
Magowan has announced that lu
will not race his game little horvo
Mainleaf (3) 2:08 this year bt.t
will start J. Malcolm Forbes latn
in the season. The fact tint
Mainleaf will notsturt will be dia
sapointing to the horses many ad
mirers all over the country who
remember his name fijrlit in the 'Kj
iventucKy uctunty year before
last, when had he been given any
thing like fair treatment he would
have won, as it was he demon
strated that he is one of the gam
est trotters that the turf has ever
known. He in company with J.
Malcolm Forbes will make the
season of 1913 at Mr. Magowan's v
stock farm near this city. Mr.
Magowan is not retiring as he has
retained 12 brood mares but will
devote the greater part of his time
to the breeding industry instead
of the racinir game.
20 pounds best granulated sugar
for $1.00 at Spot Cash Grocery.
Tobacco continues to pour into
the local market and during the
past week both houses have been
selling capacity floors at almost
every sale. The quality hasn't
been nearly so good as it was ear
lier in the season and it has been
in too high case. The price has
been off two or three cents but the
market Monday was decidedly
better than on Friday, and with
good selling conditions the price
will propably "pick up at the next
sale. At any rate the market here
is holding up equally as well as
any place in the State and the
farmers are generally satisfied
with the prices obtained, while
speculators have "cried" a little
owing to the slump.

Post Packages Recommended.
Postmaster General Hitchcock's
annual report suggests reduction of
some parcel post rates and increas
ing the limit of weight beyond
eleven pounds; civil pensions lor
postal employes; an increase in
rates on second class mail, which
may pave the way for 1 cent let
ter postage, and consolidation of
the third and fourth classes so
books and papers may be forward

Our meats are always the best
