PARIS, BOURBON COUNTY, KENTUCKY, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 12, 1917
ANOTHER QUOTA TO BE CALLED
Those who "were fondly consoling
themselves with the thought that
t'ncle Sam had all the soldiers he
needed to assist the Allies, and that
they were to rest in security from
the draft will find themselves on the
losing side. A notice was posted on
the bulletin board in the office of
the local Board of -Exemption in the
court house Wednesday, containing
the names of thirty-one Bourbon
county young men who have been
certified back to the local Board by
the District Board at Lexington, as
being called for serivce.
The men have been notified by
card, and many personally, to hold
themselves in readiness to report for
military duty at the office of the
Board within the next seven days,
and are specifically charged to keep
a close watch on the bulletin board
po as to be apprised of the eract
date upon which they are called to
report. The new call came as a sur
prise, as it had not "been hinted at
in any way by the local Board, nor
had it been advertised in the papers
or official bulletin. But the fact re
mains that the call has been made
and the boys ordered to be ready.
The following comprises a list of
the thirty-one men w"ho are to com
piise the next quota of drafted men
from Bourbon county:
Frank C. Caldwell, Millersburg.

The advance with many of the petent critics, have often testified,
dealers went into effect on Saturday, The building was thoroughly reno
and with others did not go on until J bated and made cozy and home-like
Monday, when the dealers were kept from top to bottom, with the result
busy explaining the increase in price that many traveling men who had
to their bewildered patrons. The ' been in the habit of going to Lexing-
prices irom tne wnoiesaiers to tne
retailers have increased fully fifteen
per cent., and with the additional
burden of the war taxation, the retail
dealers have, in self-defense, had to
put on the extra prices.
According-to the local dealers, the
price of a five-cent cigar and a five
cent package of cigarette has now
been advanced to six cents, with a
corresponding increase in ten-cent ci
gars and cigarettes to twelve cents.
The dealers have been busy making
inventories of their stocks on hand
so as to have them ready for the
Government inspectors who are ex
pected here almost any day to look
over the lists. The inspectors will
reinvoice the stocks. The dealers will
be held accountable to the Govern
ment for the tax on goods which they
now hold, and in all future purchases
the tax will be paid by the manufac
turers and jobbers, and the dealer
will have to get his refund through
So, when you go to your dealer for
a package of your favorite smokes, or
for a piece of "twist" or "plug" to
bacco, get your extra pennies ready,
ior the old order of things has passed
away, and unless we get the Kaiser
killed and 'the war stopped, the next
thing will be the utter rout of the
smoking and chewing fraternity. The
sky will be the limit apparently on
luxuries the way things are going at
Cigarette smoking has now taken
its place among the other war-time
luxuries, due to the advance in
price of all standard brands, and is
now firmly established among other
rapidly soaring commodities', much
to the displeasure of the inveterate
smoker. The poor man who would
enjoy his "pill" still has recourse to
the "makins" as a means of beat
ing the high -cost of smokingr and.
no doubt many smokers who have
Tiver learned how to roll a cigar
ette will be boasting of his accom
plishments -in that line before long.

CHANGE IN PRICES AT ALAMO
Owing to the fact that everything
in the production of moving pictures
has increased in cost fully fifty "per

the country have been compelled to
advance prices to meet the situation.

including children in arms; at the
