As To The Farmer.
"Very few things are more tire
some than listening to some fellow
dilate upon the old, wornout, thread
bare joke about the farmer's inabil
ity to be satisfied with weather con
ditions. That statement originated
as a joke long before Joe Miller
could laugh heartily enough to shake
the slats of his cradle, and it still
finds a place in the system of some
fellows whose real sense of humor is
almost as funny as a crutch.
Speaking for the Bourbon county
farmer, not that he differs from
farmers all over the land, but because
we know him better, that moth-eaten
statement that he cannot con
sent himself with the weather con
ditions is a libel. Like the lamented
James "Whitcomb Riley, the Bour-!
bon county farmer has long ago re
alized that "The good Lord sorts the
weather and, I'm satisfied." If there
is a drouth, the Bourbon county
farmer deplores it, naturally. But
lie is big enough and brainy enough
to know that finding fault with
Providence isn't going to bring rain
And again, when the clouds seem
to have been ripped wide open and
every drop of moisture stored for
weeks is squeezed out at one time,
the- farmer does nothing more tkan
"the balance of us wish it would
"quit raining. That is human na
ture, and the farmer has no monopoly
If there is a human being satisfied
with conditions insofar as the ele
ments are concerned, it is the far
mer. As a result he has studied the
question more closely than the city
jnan, and is in a better position to
'take what may come in the shape of
weather. He can better adjust him
self to sudden changes, and he has
the satisfaction, in one respect, that
the city man has never enjoyed
he knows that he isn't going jLo
starve to death if he has to remain'
in the house for a week at a time.
If the balance of the world could
jadjust itself to weather conditions
as well as the farmer, Providence;
wouldn't have such a hard time'

The trouble with walking around
the streets of Paris with a kind
word and a friendly nod for every
one is that many people not know
ing you were just an ordinary mor
tal, might think you were a candi
date for some city or county office.
The Family Reunion.
Now is the season for the family re
union. Shady groves throughout
Bourbon county are again to be the
scene of happy family gatherings,
new acquaintances are going to bo
made, old ties of freindship made
stronger and a wealth of happiness
released in scores of hearts.
Since the family reunion has re
placed the old-fashioned picnic to a
great extent, and since "homecom
ings" come to be more popular than
the old-fashioned county fairs the
ties of relationship and the bonds of
friendship have been welded anev
and stronger. The family reunion
brings together for a day of recrea
tion those who trace their ancestry
back to the time when those same
ancestors struggled with the red man
on the frontiers of Kentucky for su
premacy, often over the same grounds
upon which the reunions are held.
Their joys and their sorrows since
the last reunion are reviewed, their
smiles and their tears are mingled
again as they point to new arrivals
that have come to bless the family
since the last assemblage, or as they
sadly recall that the circle has been
invaded by death within the past
year, and someone near and dear
summoned from their midst.
And then, there's the delight of
the big dinner, spread in the shade
of the trees; the laughter of happy
children at their play; the good
natured repartee across the snowy
linen and the annual worry of
Mother for fear the men will finish
without having sampled the many
good things she has made from
recipes found in the old .trunk stored
in the attic. And then there are the
contests in which the older hearts
again grow young, in which there is
an exhibition of wrestling between
Aunt Mary's boy, who is home from
the navy on a furlough, and Cousin
Nancy's son, who has a blue registra
tion card in his pocket.
You've been there and the chances
are that you are going back again.
There is nothing sweeter in life,
nothing that makes us want to sit
right down alongside of humanity
and call it brother. The season of
the family reunion Is here again, and
may they grow in number.
Some Paris women are strong for
that "I didn't raise my boy to be a
soldier" stuff, but they'd probably e
willing enough to have them take a
job as Admiral in the Navy.
