The city of Paducah is congratulat
ing itself on the fact that the State
Ins peccois have pronounced the milk
supply of that city to be as good as
any in Kentucky. Congratulations are
There has been remarkable improve
ment in the milk sold in Kentucky cit
ies and this has been due to the ener
getic efforts of pure food officials and
health officers, who have fceen elimi
nating the unsanitary dairies and
cleaninglJup diseased herds of cattle.
As a result'ot their efforts there are
more up to date dairies, and the dairy
men are taking greater pains to see
that the public is supplied with milk
of better quality.
The milk supply of the State is not
all that it should be, as much remains
to be done. but it is gratifying to know
that in all our bigger centres of popu
lation something has been accomplish
ed toward the protection of the inter
ests of the public. There is reason to
believe that even on the farms there
is more attention paid to the'purity of
the product than was the case before
the pure milk campaign wad begun in
the cities. Kentucky now has many
sanitary dairies where formerly 'she
had few. She needs many more, as
there is great xoom for the expansion
of the dairy industry. It is more im
portant, however, that we should have
a few clean dairies than that we should
have many of the other kind. Sanita
tion should come first ; when standards
are established along that line it will
be b etter, both for the dairymen and
fur the people in general.
The Postoffice Department has an
nounced that by December 15 it will
have prepared maps of the parcels
post system, showing the rates from
all Kentucky points to elsewhere in
the United States and to each other.
Victory for Circuit Clerks.
"When the Legislature enacted Sec
tion 1722 it intended to allow the
clerks ot the circuit court $5 for
their services in each case of the Com
monwealth against a defendant
charged with a felony, and that this
fee is due and payable when the case
is taken from the docket by either dis
missing or quashing the indictment or
bya trial before a jury." said Uthe
Court of Appeals, deciding a conten
tion over fees in favor of L. P. Lay,
clerk of the Whitley Circuit Court.
The opinion settles a much mooted
question as to whether the -clerk is en
titled to.hia fee of $5 for each individ
ual'defendaat when several are named
in a joint indictment.

Attacks Section of Postal Laws.
The opening attack upon the con
stitutionality of the sections of the re
cent postal appropriation act requiring
newspapers to publish a list of ttheir
subscribers, stockholders, as well as to
label paid political articles as -'adver-tisements,
was made Monday before
the Supreme Court of the United
States in a printed brief filed bv Rob
ert C. Morris and G. B. Plante, on be
half of the Journal of Commerce and
Commercial Bulletin of New York.
The case is set for argument orally on
The attorneys for the newspapers
contend principally that the sections
violate the constitutional liberty of
the 25,000 newspapers, magazines and
periodicals published throughout v the
Unlike public service corporations,
the newspapers, the attorneys claim,
possess no elements which give the
Government a right to regulate their
business, except insofar as the public
morals or public welfare is concerned.
"Absolutely no authority can be
found lor a contention that the provis
ions complained of in this act were en
acted for the public benefit," declare
the attorneys. "Neither the govern
ment nor the public at large can be
benefited by the knowledge of the pri
vate business affairs and the financial
condition of the owner of a newspaper.
On the other hand, the provisions ob
jected to in the act are more than un
reasonable in their demands upon the
ownr or a newspaper they are per
niciously inquistorial. Tney strike
down private rights and invade per
sonal freedom and destroy private
property, in that they ruin the publi
cation if it refuses to meettheir arbi
trary demands, for ruin would surely
follow the denial of the privileges of

fiicted without any corresponding ben
efit to society. If the corporation is
doing business upon borrowed money,
ior wnicn. it has issued its notes or
other obilgations, it must publish to
the world the holders of such obliga
tions, to the annoyance of such lend
ers and the endanagering of its credit.
It must show the vulnerable spots in
its financial armor to the benefit of
its competitors and enemies. Banks
and other large financial institutions
will refuse to loan it money for fear
that thpy will be held out and adver
tised as supporting or controlling its
editorial or political policy. Nor are
these fanciful objections. To the bus
iness man they are real and alarming."
The attorneys warn lawyers, doc
tors and other professional men that.

equally require tnem to publish and
disclose the names of their clients.
Asks Injunction Against L. N.
Judge A. P. Humphrey, represent
ing the Western Union Telegraph
Compm, filed suit Tuesday in the
Federal Court at Louisville asking an
injunction to prevent the Louisville
and Nashville from interfering with
the poles, wires and other property of
the Western Union Company along the
railroad right of way until litigation
now pending between the corporation s
be settled. The previous facts in this
litigatioD are as follows :
The contract which the Western
Union has with the Louisville and
Nashville epxires December 1, and the
Western Union now has in the Federal
Court a suit to condemn the right of
way along the road now occupied by
the telegraph company. That suit will
come up upon matters of pleadings
In the meantime the Louisville and
Nashville, through counsel, has notified
the Western Union that if the Western
Union does not remove its property
on December 1 the Louisville and
Nashville will claim that property.
The suit Tuesday was simply for an
injunction to retain the status quo un
til the condemnation litigation be determined.
Brain Power Always First.
The average brain worker, it is
safe to allege, if given the preference
between perfect bodily health accom
panied by a sluggish brain, and the
discomfort arising from physical suf
fering allied to a bright, active brain
in good working trim would doubtless
choose the latter.

Woman of Narrow Mind.
A woman lacking true culture is
said to betray by conversation a mind
of narrow compass, bounded on the

her children, on the south by her ail

NO ONE STRONGER THAN HIS STOMACH.
The celebrated Dr. Abernethy oi London was firmly of the opinion that disor-
ders of the stomach were the most prolific source of human ailments in general. At
recent medical writer says: "every feeling, emotion and affection reports at the
stomach (through the system of nerves) and the stomach is affected accordingly.
It is the vital center of the body ." He continues, so we may be
said to live (through) the stomach." He goes on to show that the stomach is
the vital center of the body. For weak stomachs and the consequent indigestioa
or dyspepsia, end the multitude of various diseases which result therefrom, no
medicine caa bo better suited as a curative agent than
