JOHN FOX PLAY AT THE TABB
"The Little Shepherd of Kingdom
Come, which plays at the Tabb Thoa-
tre December 15, brings home to Ken-
tucklans many of their age-oM tradi
tions. Taken from the famous novel
( tho sumo name by our own John
Vox, Jr., and with tho spttiug In tho
Mountains of Kentucky, the nctors
depict tho feuds and dthor character
istics of tho mountain life with true
mountaineer dialect and naturalness.
It is the story of Kentucky in a set
tlement known as "Kingdom Come."
The little shepherd, who chances into
the township, knows little of his ear
ly life. He has just wandered .'rom
door to door in early chlIdhoodt seek
ing shelter from kindly mountaineers,
who gladly fathered the youth about
whom there is a tluge of mystery.
The mystery Is solved and he .(saves
his mountain home to go to the Blue
rasa for education, but when the
oall to light for his early friends
oomes, with the true mountain fidel
ity, he forgets his later associations
aad offers his life and his never miss
ing rifio in their defense.
Lester Howard, as "Squiro Middle
ton." takes his part in a particularly
bio manner. A typical backwoods
Magistrate, whose idea of law and jus
tice is somewhat confused, the squiro
lands an air of levity to tho play with
out which it would be a .failure.
Big Joel Turner, taking the part of
a typical mountaineer, also lends a
great deal to the play as he Bplno his
Borolver around on one, finger and
ays, "I take tho lie, from no man."
The play is presented by the O. E.
Wees Company, of New York, tho
tamo 'company that appeared at Ma
auley's theatre in Louisvlllo and Is
playing Lexington this week, with
bookod engagements for Dayton, Co
Umbua and Cleveland for the near
future. "Tho Little Shepherd of

"PROFITABLE PIGS NEVER
STOP GROWING" SLOGAN
In an exhibit entitled "Pork Dro-
auction," shown by the United Statos
Department of Agriculture at tho In
ternational Live Stock Exposition, at
Chicago, December 2 to 9, the de
partment gives the essential points
for raising swine economically.
Good breeding stock, proper mat
ing, and careful feeding ot the brood
sows are all important, but a point in
bog, raising, that should receive more
attonUon, because It is often neglect
ed, is the necestlty of keeping the
young pigs growing continuously from
the moment ot birth to maturity.
Kren before the pigs are weaned
they should have access to corn In
self-feeders as a supplement to the
sow's milk. As Boon as they are weau
ed the pigs should be kept on full
teed, either by self-feeder or by hand.
