"FIRST TO LAST THK TRUTH: NCWfKDITORIALS-ADVERTItKMENTS"
MT. STERLING, KENTUCKY, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 21, 1919.
Was One of Winchester's Most Be
loved Citizens and Was Widely
Related In This County
Mrs. Clayton Strode died at the
Clark County Hospital in Winches
ter nt an early hour Sunday morn
ing following an operation of about
a week ago. Mrs. Strode was a sis
ter of W. W. Eubank, Sr., and Mrs.
Emma E. Beall, of this city, and Is
widely known and related through
out Montgomery county. Mrs. Strode
was 54 years of ago and had not been
enjoying good health for sovcral
months, however, her condition was
not considered serious nnd the fatal
result of the operation was entirely
unexpected. She was a recognized
leader in the First Baptist church nt
Winchester and her happiest mo
ments wcro those spent in tho per
fomanco of tho work of hor Savior.
To know this Godly woman was to
love hor yes, to love her for what
she realty was, for her real worth.
She was kind, gentle, sacrificing nnd
loving, and her happiest hours wcro
those spent in trying to lead some
soul to know tho only life worth
living tho Christian life. To her
death hnd no sting, she lived so that
when the final summons enme she
was ready with the prayer: "Not my
will hut Thine be done" To the sor
rowing husband, the heart-broken
children and the devoted sisters nnd
brothers, we hope will find comfort
in the knowledge that she is not dead
oxcept in body. She 5s only asleep
yes, asleep in Jesus, awaiting that
glorious resurrection morn when all
who live the life as did this good
woman will be joined together in a
world so different from this a
worldwhere sorrow and sadness are
unknown. W wish it were within
our power to write one sentence that
w.ould lend comfort to those nearest
and dearest, hut we know, how vain it
is to attempt to gild a grief with
words or try to lessen a licartacho
with any expression of sympathy.
Wo only know that all who livo must
die, but with the Qood-byo hero it is
only tho dawn over there.
A devoted husband and. five loving
children Mrs. Clay Sutherland,
Mrs. Cecil Haggard, Miss Ruth
Strode, Nelson nnd Homer Strode,
are left to mourn tho depnrturo of
this noblo woman, in addition to
threo sisters Mrs. W. D. Judy, Mrs.
Emma E. Beall and Miss Effie Eu
bank and two brothers W. W. Eu
bank and P. C. Euhank.

"A woman's place is in the home,"
So some folk say. But should you roam
From California down to main,
From coast to' coast and back again
You'll find the reason for this pome:
Which is, in brief, to slay the brom
ide, ancient, found in musty (tome, ''
And held by folk of little brain:
"A woman's place .'. .. .. "
Go, boneheads, ye of marble dome,
To Sunny Spain to Frozen Nome.
But here your chatter is in vain;
For shop and office, shine or rain,
Hold woman. Why, our land's become
A woman's place!
To say nothing of Jails. '

WILL MORROW WITHDRAW?
Edwin P. Morrow said he didn't
have anything to do with the prose
cution of the Grant County tobacco
growers who had pooled their crops
in order to get a better price. So pos
itive was Morrow's denial of the
charge mado by Congressman Camp
bell Cantrill that Mr. Contrill asked
for a copy of the records at Wash
ington. To this inquiry tho U. S. At
torney at Washington, after consult
ing the records, makes public the
Jfact that Morrow did act ns chniged
by Congressman Cantrill. In a debate
at Irvine with Cantrill Judge Beth
rum, of Somerset, said that if Can
trill could show that Morrow had
been interested in this tfaso at all or
had protested rfgainst the pardons lerhnidt, of Georgetown; Dr. Powell,
for the tobacco growers that Mor- of Louisville, nnd Dr. Wallingford, of
