Women On the Farm.
One of the high officials of the Agri
cultural Department at Washington
dpelores the fact that "the women of
the farmer's family are neither able
nor willing to repeat the manual labor
performances of their grandmothers
on the farm."
Doubtless this is true but there is
no reason why it should be greatly de
plored. There is progress on the farm
as elsewhere. Labor saving machin
ery and improvements of various kinds
have made things easier for the farm
er, and why should rural life not be
easier for the farmer's wire and
daughters. Conditions on the farm
are greatly different from what they
were forty years ago. Household
work in thosa days represented almost
endless drudgery, with few of the
things which we now known as modern
conveniences. Many of the "grand
mothers on the farm" literally were
"hewers of wood and drawers of wat
er." Not only did they draw the wat
er but some of them actually carried it
for long distances from springs or
wells inconveniently located for house
It is not worth while to dwell upon
the bad and harsh conditions of form
er days, the isolation, the toil, the
hardships, the privations in many in
stances the hopelessnessof the life
struggle in rural regions in the past.
No one should desire a recurrence of
such conditions. No one should de
plore the fact that the farm women of
today are Hiving under an improved
order of things, and;iargely,2have been
emancipated from the bondage which
fell to the lot of the grandmothers.
It is well to remember that life on
the farm is no ceaseless round of gay
ety at any time or under any environ
ment. Probably most of the farmers'
wives are doing quite as much work
nowadays asc ould reasonably be ex
pected of them, but they are living in
a different era from that in which the
grandmothers lived and toiled. The
fact that they are cretting by with
less manual labor is to be rejoiced in
rather than to be lamented.
"A THOROUGHBRED TRAMP."
"A Thoroughbred Tramp," which
will be the attraction at the Paris
Grand on November 20 is a powerful
comedy drama telling a beautiful story
combining humor, pathos, heart inter
est and thrilling realism. There is a
strong vein of comedy a laughable
nature tnat more than pleases.
The story, it is said, is written
around incidents of a celebrated case
ot New York life, well written and
not unreal or stagey. It is one of the
best comedy dramas of today written
by playright who has given the public
some of the very best dramas of recent
years. "A Thoroughbred Tramp" will
be presented by a competent company
with the eminent emotional actress,
Miss Josephine Wowsey. in the leading
feminine role, and supported by such
people as Louise Wren, of "Jekyll and
Hyde" fame, Hal Williams, Frank
Carman and others in the cast.
The quiet home is a fitting atmos
phere. One feels at home by the fire
side with the devoted young husband
and wife j shudders at the entrance of
Ihe villain whose only purpose is to
destroy the reputation of the hubsand
in order to get possession of another's
wife. One cannot help but admire the
fidelity of the little waif to the sorrow
ing wife and glory in the unfailing en
ergy of "A Thoroughbred Tramp,"
who finally runs the evildoers to the
end of their rope and right triumphs
ATTRACTIONS AT LEXINGTON.
Charles Frohman will present Maude
Adams in James Matthew Barrie's
classic plav, "Peter P3n." at the Lex
ington Opera House Tuesday and Wed
nesday, November 26 and 27. This bit
of news is certain not only to interest
but to delight all classes of theatre
goers, for Miss Adams is the best lov
ed personality on the American stage.
As for "Peter Pan," everyone has
heard of the boy who wouldn't grow
up and his adventures in the Never.
Never, Land. Miss Adams when first
seen in this whimsical work by the
cleverest of modern British writers,
scored the greatest success that she
had known. Her early tours in it were
notable triumphs. Again and again
there has been a demand that she re
vive it, and it is in anwser to this de
mand that the work is now being giv
en. It is asid of "Peter Pan" that it
is the daintiest and most beautiful
fairy tale which has iound its way to
the worldly, noisy modern stage. It
is a whimsical drama of the child
heart, which no one but James Barrie
could hove written and no one but
Maude Adams make real. Mr. Froh
man has surrounded the actress with a
strong and well balanced company and
given the play a series of elaborate

Although there are 31 shopping days
from now until Christmas holiday buy
ers should take advantage of the early
season to do their shopping. There
are many great advantages in this, not
only for, the Christmas buyera but to
those who spend the long days in the
shops and stores behind the counters.
In all the larger cities throughout
the United States early shopping will
be advocated and already the press is
urging early buying, and as early be
fore the Christmas holidays as is pos
sible. While Paris is only a small center
for Christmas trade yet there -is moie
business transacted here than in any
other town in Central Kentucy of its
size. The stores will be crowded to
overflowing the week preceding Christ
mag and to avoid the rush that is cer
ain to come shoppers should begin now
to purchase their Christmas goods.
. The stores throughout the city will
be compelled to employ additional help
during the holidays and the all day
task of the clerks rushing from one
customer to another during the final
rush is wearing on the nerves, espe
cially the female employes who should
be entitled to no small degree of con
sideration from the buying public.
Another advantage is the condition
ot the stocks of the stores at the early
season. A customer who' takes advan
tage of the early dates will iiave an
unlimited stock to select from while if
buying is put off until the last day the
stock will be depleted and only a lim
ited line will be Ii-ft to Select from.
One thing we wish to call the atten
tion of the loc ij buyers to ia the pur
chase of their Christmas goods at
One of the most important engage
ments announced for a long time hence
by the management of the Lexington
Opera House is that of the A born Eng
lish Grand Opera Company, which
comes to Lexington November 29 and
30, with matinee the 30th. This is the
largest organization in the world giv
ing grand opera in English. The op
eras of their repertoire are all staged
with elaborate scenery and costumes,
and grand opera notables in the lead
ing roles. The Aborn Company, like
all important grand opera organiza
tions, maintains a nouble set of artists
as your real grand opera song birds
never sing two performances in suc
cession. The exactions of this grade
of music are too great a strain on the
voice for consecutive performances ; so
Messrs. Aborn have alternating prin
cipals in all of their companies. A
special orchestra of 25 accompanies
this organization. The operaB select
ed for this engagement are: Friday,
November 29, Lucia di Lamermoor;
Saturday matinee, 30, Madame Butter
yfl ; Saturday night, Lohengrin.
The sale of seats will open Wednes
day, November 27. The prices will
range from fifty cents to two dollars.
ATI orders fur seats sent to Manager
Scott will receive prompt attention if
accompanied by a remittance and a
self addressed envelope.
FOR THE WOMAN WHO THINKS AND FEELS.
Some women complain that they periodically suffer from dull and heavy fcel-T
ings, or dizziness in the head, nervousness, pain and bearing-down feelings which
should not occur to the normal healthy woman. But most every woman is subject
to these pains at some time in her life, due to abnormal conditions in life, such
as corsets, over-taxed strength, bsd air, poor or improper food, v-et feet, sluggish
liver, etc. A regulator and fcrazlc tonic made iroia native rncdicisai roots with

No Extra Session Says Governor
The secret of the conference be
tween the Governor and other state
officials held at the Governor's office
in Frankfort last week has been well
kept, for no one on the outside has
yet learned just what was discussed or
what was oroposed if anything. The
supoosition is that inasmuch as the
Governor was asked to hold the confer
ence the railroad representatives
wanted the Governor to take some ac
tion. Of course it is not known what
this proposed action was but as the
Governor is powerless in the matter
except to call an extra session of the
Legislature many believe the railroads
want the Governor to call the Legisla
ture together to pass a law fixing a
basis or method of assessing the fran
chise value of the corporations espe
cially the railroads.
