EUSSELL EESIGNS AS -BLUE
GRASS LEAGUE TTF.AT)
Thomas M. Russell, of Maysville,
president of the Blue Grass League,
who was also president of the Blue
Grass League of a decade ago, ten
dered his. resignation at a meeting
of the club owners at the Phoenix
Hotel in ' Lexington, Wednesday
night. Mr. Russell will continue in
office until his successor is elected.
Club owners present expressed
much regret that Mr. Russell should
give up the presidency, but he ex
plained that the pleasure of holding
the oflice was not enough to com
pensate him for the "enemies" he
had made while trying to do his
duty. It was largely through the
efforts of Mr. Russell that the Blue
Grass circuit, composed of but six
clubs and carrying ,a schedule, of
but two games a week, was able to
weather the storms that threatened
to upset it during the early part of
the season. No mention has been
made as to who may be his suc
cessor. The meeting was hastily arrang
ed, and was not announced by Mr.
Russell until Wednesday. A num
ber of other matters were discussed,
including financial arrangements,
umpires, "meddling with players,"
and contracts. No definite action
was taken, except that it was de
cided that all contracts be forward
ed directly to the president.
The Winchester and Lexington
clubs agreed good-naturedly to fight
it out to the bitter end for the pos
session of John "Rasty" Wright,
who has pitched for both Qlubs,
and who has also been sold to Pitts
burg. Apparently an extensive legal
battle is to result.
President Russell announced that

Geoflrey Morgan, secretary of the
Kentucky Farm Bureaji Federation,
and Judge Denis Dundon, of Paris,
will speak' at points in West Vir
ginia Saturday in the interest of the
Burley Tobacco Growers' Co-operative
Association. J. Sherman Porter,
editor of the Burley Tobacco Grower
and publicity director of the associa
tion, will speak to-day at Vevay and
Saturday at North Vernon, Ind., at
meetings of tobacco growers to be
held in those towns.
Clifton Rodes, who has been in
charge of the West Virginia cam
paign, which included also the coun
ties of Southeastern Ohio, passed
through Lexington Tuesday on his
way to Western Kentucky, where he
will aid in the campaign to sign up
the dark district. Judge Robert W.
Bingham, who has been financing
the dark district campaign, as he did
that of the Burley district, sent Mr.
Rodes to West Virginia to organize
that State and, at the request of
Judge Bingham, the oflicials of the
Burley Association agreed to release
Mr. Rodes for the present to the
dark tobacco growers' association.

MAKE VALUABLE FIND AT
Several months ago a rummage
sale was held in the Northcott
building, on Main street, vacated by
W. T. Talbott as a clothing store.
As usual, all sorts of contributions
were sent to the sale, being mainly
articles that could well be disposed
of as surplus and undesirable stock
around the homes of Paris people.
Among those who attended the
sale was Louis Wollstein, of the
Twin Bros.' store, next door. Mr.
Wollstein had just disposed of
a good dinner, and feeling at peace
with all the world, stood taking in
the sights and sounds at the sale.
Finally, the autioneer placed on sale
a pen-and-ink drawing, nicely
framed. Mr. Wollstein purchased
the outfit for seventy-five cents, be
ing desirous of getting the frame
and glass more than the picture it
enclosed. After the drawing had
been stowed away in an obscure
place about the store for several
weeks Sello Wollstein, son of the
purchaser, happened to be making a
close inspection and discovered the
'drawing, to be a genuine one from
the pen of Charles Dana Gibson,
whose drawings have a high value
in the art world of to-day. There
was the genuine flowing signature of
Gibson in the corner. Art critics
who have examined the drawing
pronounce it a genuine Gibson and a
valuable find. The drawing illus

We held our regular shoot Wed
nesday afternoon with twenty-two
shooters taking part in the after
noon's sport. The crowd was small
on account of so many housing to
bacco, and threatening weather,
which finally did develope in hav

think to do with getting some badly
needed rains, we will go over there
and stay open day and night. The

donated by A. J. Winters & Co., was
won by Douglas Thomas, Jr., after
a battle royal, four tying for first
