This hootch is worst of any town,
It brings a lot of woes;
You'd better turn bootleggers down
Ere you turn up your toes.
A Louisville man has become
obsessed with the idea that he is the
devil. Now the moral is: Don't
believe everything your wife tells

A Paris father chided his son be
cause his school books were so clean
as to suggest infrequent use.
"Well," said the kid, "my geography
ain't no cleaner than your Bible."
"What has become of the old-fash-ioned
Paris wife who thought her
'husband was so humane because he
iwent down town every night to
,feed the kitty?"
'When you size up the fellow who
complains he has been "the victim of

I heard of a man sying of his
dead friend: "He didn't have a dol
lar, but he was one of the best-loved
men in town." Was not that as
perfect an epitaph as the human
tongue could devise or human be
iing wish for?
Thursday will be the annual re
currence of Columbus Day, which
-will be appropriately celebrated all
-over America. But we are willing
to bet that when Columbus discov
ered America he couldn't have had
the thrill that a fellow gets when he
finds a five-dollar bill in the pocket
-of an old pair of pants.

and back into the bottle, it is im

There is nothing sadder in this
world .than the spectacle of a little
Paris boy complaining as he goes to

One reason for frequent divorces
in America is the popularity, of the
ideal expressed in the term "love
nest," and the unpopularity of the
old-fashioned conception of house
hold equipment which included a
tin wash basin on the back porch
for some of the boys to use while the
rest of the children washed their
faces and hands in the house.
Of course we're an old grouch, and
don't know nothing about it anyhow
noways, either, but, if our opinion
were asked, we would say that much
of this enthusiasm about the world
series, strikes us as being made to
order. If you've got the money, and
are willing to spend it, you can
have a winning team; that seems
to be the way out of it, and ones
sporting blood is just as little stir
red over , such a contest as when a
wealthy stock broker gives, an order
to buy a likely Derby winner and
luck stays with him long enough for
a blue ribbon.

THE REWARD OF BUYING AT
After all the sending or taking
away of our home money is but a
matter of thoughtlessness, which
the sender possibly construes as
thoughtfulness and economy. The
above illustration is an exam
ple. We are often carried away by
the foolish idea that out of town
stores can give us better prices, dis
regarding the fact thatour home
merchants have a fixed policy to ask
only that just percentage of profit
that permits 'the doing of business
on a modern scale. '

SNIPE EXTINCT ANIMAL
What was once a popular diver
sion -in the rural districts has al
most become decadent. This was the
"snipe hunt" arranged for the un
sophisticated visitor from the city
who nearly always fell for the joke
put up by his country cousin.
These1 "snipe hunts" always were
arranged with great detail and the
victim from the city stationed at
some lonely spot to hold the bag for
the collection of the snipe after the
drive. After holding out for several
hours and hearing all sorts of
strange noises the terrorized bag
holder ordinarily tumbled to the
sell and sneaked back to his quar
ters to undergo the jibes and taunts
of the perpetrators of the trick.
The expression, "holding the bag,"
owes its origin to the old-fashioned
"snipe .hunt" in which the country
folks .turned the tables on, smart
city chap. ( ' ...

Paris, As Told in THE

There's no denying that to most
of us there is a certain satisfaction
in reviewing the events of long ago,
as they are presented .to us, either
casually or by force of some remin
iscent strain of the moment. And
to those who lived here in the long
ago the recalling of events in the
old days of Paris affords a peculiar
satisfaction all its own. They, per

grown used to the old place, will
appreciate . these items, taken at

DEMOCRATS URGED TO BOOST
Congressman J. Campbell Cantrill
and Alben W. Barkley were men
tioned as being possible candidates
for next year's gubernatorial race at
the meeting of the Democratic State
committee held in Louisville. No
definite action endorsing either of
the men was taken.
Action in the Clayhole case was
deferred until a later date because
the meeting lacked enough repre
sentatives to make a quorum, it was
said. It had been announced that
the State Committee would make
endeavors to relieve the families of
the men connected with the Clay
hole election case.
During the meeting, which had
formed itself into a mass assembly,
a resolution was offered by Joseph
Robinson, of Lancaster, asking that
every Kentucky Democrat make ex
traordinary efforts to elect the con
gressional candidates and Judge
David A. McCandless. in the Third
i appellate district.
A general denunciation of the
State and National administrations
was made in the resolution. It said
that practically every member of
the State and National organization
had violated promises made to se
cure their election.
"NOW. IF I WAS RUNNING THIS
"Alomst every day of the week we
hear some one say, 'Believe me. if I
was running this town I'd do so and
so.' Probably at least half of the
suggestions might prove valuable
and the people who are running the
town would be glad to get them.
"The plain truth of the matter is
that every citizen of the town has or
should have a hand in the way a
town is operated. Far too many of
them feel that when they have elect
ed a mayor or city council they have
dispensed with their full duty.
Those people are elected simply in
order that the will of the people
may be carried out not in order
that the town may be run as a mere
handful of men dictate.
"These men you have elected do
not claim to be all-wise in the best
methods of governing a town. They
are there to carry out the wisest of
the suggestions they receive. Nat
urally when they do not receive any
have to fall back on their own ideas.
But they would be only too glad to
get ideas from every citizen', so
hereafter, instead of saying, 'Believe
me, if I was running this town'
just realize that it is part of your
job to have a hand in the running
and tell the right person what you
