The Country Paper.
One of the most notable facts con
nected "with the country newspaper
of to-day is the large increase in the
amount of advertising of local busi
ness houses. The change has taken
place gradually and has been marked
especially during the past year or
two. It is highly significant and an
inquiry as to the cause of it is of
great profit, not only to those in the
nwespaper business, but to every bus
iness man and citizen of our town as
The change in brief, means that
the local merchants have found it
necessary to call attention to their
goods because of the immense compe
tition theyface, the most deadly ele
ment of which is that from the great
department stores of the cities. These
great establishments advertise their
wares Javishly, and the metropolitan
.newspapers which contain their ad
vertisements are distributed over the
country, some one paper of which en
ters into nearly every home. The re
sult is that these metropolitan estab
lishments have built up an immense
mail order trade.
In Paris, and indeed in most of the
towns around here, there is no occa
sion for this out-of-town buying
(save of course, when you have to gol
or send to Lexington for your "wet
-goods.") The duty of Paris citizens
-dn the matter is plain, and where ali
v -other things are equal, support should
"foe given to the local dealers. Our
;mercliants have invested their capital
here, have erected buildings which
,- are almost metropolitan in their
.character and service. They have
" helped to build up Paris, and it is
only a fair return that they have the
city's trade. To turn trade otherwise,
-- ven in the line of small purchases
- --which are great in the aggregate, is
'to invite the decline of property val-
-ues in Paris.
How has it happened that no one
in Paris has offered to provide "our
- boys" with a rabbit foot each before
they start for the front?
As To Telephone Talk.
Two ladies met at the home of a
.mutual friend in Paris, (Ky.), the
other day. They had not seen each
other for one whole day, and natur
'ally 'they were full of conversation.
One of the women lived in the coun
try. In some way the subject of tel
epaomee came up. They both had
'?rty line telephones, those ingeni
ous acaiaes that enable oneto near
all the private convereatlon-Jntenied
for aome.-ptlr,jj)M;ty ."on the4ina.
One of the women, was telling abat
how mean someone in her neighlMir
hood hai been. To use lier Iowa
language, this somebody will "talk
to some other fool somebody for half
an hour, and never say anything,
either, worth listening to, and here I
will be nearly wild wanting to get
the line to order things from Paris
or to tell Tom what I want him to
bring home with him. Are you both
ered that way?"
The other woman replied: "Well,
dear, I used to be, but I am not any
more. A friend of mine who is con
nected With the telephone service told
me how to put on a choker, and I will
tell you. You may have noticed those
two metal knobs at the top of the
instrument. Well, they are there
whether you have noticed them or
not. Now, when somebody has used
the line about twice as long as they
should, I just connect up those two
knobs with a short piece of wire.
Then in a minute or two I take off
the short circuit and then I can get
central. I used to feel as if I wanted
to say bad words, but now let the
gossips feel that way."
There may be a more scientific
way of overcoming the difficulty, but
to the unitiated, this plan looks sim
ple and good enough. Business
houses are too often annoyed by the
telephone-user, who deliberately
camps in front of the instrument
and uses up all the available atmos
phere in the room in detailing a lot
of "mushy" stuff to some feminine
infant at the other end of the line,
while business is "waiting." Rauss
We have noticed that the few con
scientious objectors to the war draft
we have met with in Paris haven't
any objections to the other fellow

ing. "The Old Woman."
A nice phrase to be used about the
dear old soul who kept her vigil over
you in your infancy, kissed away
your tears in childhood and remain
ed your trusted friend in maturity.
Js this all the love you have for
the silver-haired mother who bathed
your scorching brow all through the
long sleepless nights of affliction,
when your brain was wild with burn
ing fever? Is there no other term you
can find for her who has followed you
through every trial, tribulation and
misfortune of your life?
Has mother, through all these years
of labor, watching and wating, been
wasting her love on a worthless
bunch of clay, who, in the rosy dawn
of manhood has no other term more
fitting than "the old woman" by
which to address or speak of his
Not until the selective drafting
act was sprung on the country did
we suspect that there were so many
fellows in Bourbon county and in
Paris who were dependent upon
someone else, or who were engaged in
"farming" or "industrial occupa

KENTUCKY AND INDIANA TROOPS
Indiana and Kentucky troops are
in complete control ofCamp Shelby,
at Hattiesburg, Miss. A regiment of
Mississippi infantry, which, has been
doing guard duty there, has gone to
the State mobilization camp and the
Indiana men took up the guard work.
Maj. D. H. Loniax, division Quar
termaster, has reported at Camp
Shelby for duty. His division com
prises the Indiana, West Virginia
and Kentucky troops and he will have
complete charge of all the food and
feedstuffs the big cantonment will re

M. Lewis, of the Seventy-forth In

of the five who have been assigned to
this camp. Gen. Lewis commanded
14,000 soldiers on the border, includ
ing the Indiana delegation. He wil1
have charge of the Indiana brigade
at Camp Shelby.
Kentucky hospitality is a byword in
Camp Shelby. Maj. Gen. W. H. Sage,
commandant of the camp, is the lat
est comer to feel it. On his arrival
Maj. W. H. Howard, construction
quartermaster, and Maj. Jackson
Morris, assistant construction quar

Bluegrass State, offered Gen. Sage

COPPER IS BOOMING.
The tremendous war demand for
copper along with labor troubles in
qnany producing countries," has made
the fortunes of the owners of active
European copper mines in neutral
States. Certain mines in Spain are
the most striking instance of this.
These mines are the oldest in exist
ence. They were known to the an
cient Pheonicians, and the Romans
used their output in manufacturing
bronze armor. Last year they paid
their owners dividends of over 100

his manner of vacation," declares Ed

began to plan it some months in ad

steamboat and hotel booklets on the
library table. When the time came
Mrs. Pippkins and tbe girls went to a
huge wooden hotel on the edge of a

When Pippkins ran down on one Fri
day of each fortnight he boarded a
hot, dusty, overcrowded train and rode
for five uncomfortable hours. They
insisted that he don a Tuxedo each
evening for dinner. He used to won

I might write a story upon how that
car and its predecessors in the Pipp

soul, but this is not the time nor place.
Sufficient is it to say that Pippkins is
now a motor expert, and Dr. King
down at our corner says that Pippkins
