NEW BATHING BEACH A POPU
Paris women have discovered and
are patronizing extensively a new
bathins: beach. The new find is on
Stoner Creek, in the vicinity of the
Massie Memorial Hospital, and th
rear of the old Bluegrass Leage ball
Last Saturday afternoon a score or
more bathers had possession of the
beach, where they disposed them
selves in the cooling waters until
caution told them to come out. Sev
eral made hasty plunges shoreward
when inquisitive crawfish nipped
their pink toes and visions of croco
diles and alligators kept many from
venturing very far from the "safety
first" of the shore.
The water is just the right depth,
cool and clear, and the new beach
bids fair to become a very popular
resort on warm afternoons.
If the bathing continues to be as
popular at this place as it is now, by
the time cool weather sets in every
little fish and crawfish in the stream
will be on speaking terms with every
girl in Paris. Perhaps it is best, for
if the drafting requirements of the
army takes away the boys the girls
will need someone to to talk to, and
the fishes can at least give them
swimming lessons, which is a great
deal more than some of the boys
Some of the beginners who were at
the beach Sunday were so enthusias
tic over the progress they had made
in learning to swim that they could
hardly be persuaded to leave the
water. Among the instructors pres
ent were three of the most popular
matrons in Paris, all clever swim

Paris, viewing the sights.
The gentlemen were very optimis
tic concerning the prospects for oil
development, and gave it as their
opinion that Kentucky, especially the
Eastern part of the State, would ere
long take a front rank in the list of
oil and gas producing States. They
complimented the general appearance
of Paris, and commended very favor
ably upon the character of public and
private buildings. Mr. Coleman ex
tended a cordial invitation to THE
NEWS to pay him a visit in Wall
Street and watch the "bears and
bulls" at their play. He stated that
we would be surprised to know that
as many people on Wall Street retired
at ten p. m. as they do in Paris, and
that the famous street was not al

and familiarly pictured.
The companies which these capi

of the' largest purchases of oil pros

the interest of the photographic
profession, publishes a handsome
half-tone reproduction of a fine pho

In its comment on tne protrait
BOURBON FARMING CONDITIONS.
Farmers in this county have put in
a good part of their time during the
past week of good weather getting
their crops in a good state of culti
vation. Plowing corn and tobacco
oni fhreshine: wheat have been the
chief occupations. v The corn is un
usually free from weeds, and is mak
ing the best stand of any in this tier
nf nnimties. The nrosnect for a good
crop is unusually good. Wheat and
rye threshing will continue through
the present week. Owners of thresh
otc are charging twenty-five cents a
bushel for wheat and thirty-five cents
a bushel for rye. Many farmers will
do their own threshing.
While rain was badly needed to
break the drouth,' it is thought that
little permanent damage has been
done except in case of potatoes and
gardens, which have suffered greatly.
The growing crops present a very fa
vorable outlook and with the rains of
the past few days will make excep
tionally good yields, in the general
opinion of the farmers.
The corn is in especially good con
dition, and the tobacco plants appear
to be thriving. Both crops have been
thoroughly worked during the past
twn weeks. Oats have improved
somewhat, and with the aid of the re
cent rains which came at the exact
time to save the crop, may make a
fair vield. Hemn is making a fair
growth and the acreage in this coun
ty is reported as being mucn larger
Gardens are yielding their fruits
now in large quantities, and the mar
kets are being flooded with vegeta
bles, which is having the desired ef
fect on the high cost of living.
Cattle are moving to the markets
in large numbers and are command
ing good prices. Lambs are coming
in rapidly, and the price has fallen
off somewhat from last week, the pre
vailing prices being around fourteen
cents, with the range from thirteen to
sixteen cents per pound.
