TOBACCO TENANTS ON PBOS
SAY "BAYER" when you buy Aspirin

not getting the genuine Bayer pro
duct prescribed by physicians over
twenty-two years and proved safe
by millions for colds, headache,
earache, neuralgia, lumbago, rheu
matism, neuritis, and for pain in
general. Accept only "Bayer"
package, which contains proper di
rections. Handy boxes of twelve
tablets cost few cents. Druggists
also sell bottles of 24 and 100.

This event marked the second
attempt of Judge J. M. Benton to
propagate in Kentucky a strain of
wild geese, reputed to be found
only in certain sections of Missouri.
Geese of this strain, according to
claims advanced by Missouri own
ers, are imbued with a trait not to
be found in other members of the
species. They are easily educated
to replace horns on automobiles,

of a car, it has been claimed, such

AS TO WEDDING GIFTS
The receipt of an invitation to an
October wedding ought to fill one
with some pleasure as a notifica
tion to attend a joyous occasion'
where one would meet many inter
esting people and see a beautiful
ceremony. But many folks on get
ting such a notice, groan at the
thought of buying a wedding gift.
Yet they usually have to admit,
if. they are married, that at a criti
cal period of their early history
their friends turned out with a glo
rious send off of fine presents, which
did a lot to furnish the home dur
ing their years of struggle.
The only trouble with the wed
ding gift custom is that so many
articles are offered having no sub
stantial value. Costly stuff in
tended merely lor ornament may be
all right for the rich, but for young
folks just starting in life it is inap
propriate. Iti is often a good idea to
ask the bride's family what she
would like, and purchase gifts along
that line if possible.

On every hand the improved con
dition of tobacco tenantry reflects
the general improvement and up- j
ward tendency in the burley dis
trict! during the war period and the
subsequent operations of the Bing
ham Co-operative Marketing Asso
ciation. From practically serfdom
and degradation the tobacco tenant
has risen to comparative v affluence
Only a few years ago the lot of
the tobacco tienant was most deplor
able and discouraging. He and his
'wife and children were in rags and
had barely enough to subsist on, al
though the whole family labored
from sunup to sundown and often
later in the tobacco patch. His
children were kept away from school
either because they had to work or
had no clothes to wear, and going
to church was out of the question.
In spite of these hardships, when
the tobacco was sold the tobacco
'tenant had little or nothing to show
for his work and deprivations. Of
ten he came out in debt and started
the next crop witlh an added handi
cap. Now the tobacco tenant wears an
air of independence. His wife and
children are properly clothed "and
his home is equipped with comforts.
The children go to school and in
many instances the whole family
motors to church on Sunday.
Kentucky life has experienced no
metamorphosis more striking than
that borught about in the con
dition of the tobacco tenants in a
few years. Industry and loyalty to
the co-operative principle on the
part of the tobacco tenant would
seem to assure tthe continuance of
the present conditions.

Uncle Henry Writes to the Home Folks
About the Trip to Cincinnati.
My wife, Mary, and I, had been talking for a long time about going to Cincinnati
on a little visit. She had a 'cousin' there she hadn't seen for a long time. I wanted to
see the Zoo and some of the new buildings the papers were talking about.
Crops were laid by and we figured we could let the boys run the farm for a while.
So we packed a big grip and started. The train had only pulled out when Mary let
out a little yell. I thought it was train robbers or a wreck. But she explained that she
had just remembered that she had forgotten to put my extra handkerchiefs in the grip.
"Well, that's nothing to yell about," I says. "We can buy gome in Cincinnati when
we get in." We both laughed about it but it just goes to show how a little thing like
that worries a woman.
Well, we got there about "ten o'clock In the morning and went to the-hotel. First
thing Mary must unpack to see if she had forgotten anything else. Sure enough she
found stockings and collars missing. Now ain't that like a woman? I'll bet if I packed
a grip I'd make a list and check it off. Mary says I would forget "to put half the things
on the list. So there you are a dead lock as they say in Congress. x.
We started out to look around a little before noon and maybe to buy the things she
I always like to walk around on Fountain Square. You can get a good drink of
water there. There don't seem to be any other -place to get a drink unless you go
into-a drug store and then you feel awkward about just asking for water when they
have soda to sell.
After we had a drink, we stood and looked at the new hotel going up on the corner.
My, but that's going to be some hotel when It's done. Mary, just like a woman was
looking in the other direction. She was gazing at Mabley's windows of course. So
she says, "Henry, we might as well go on over there and buy the things we forgot"
Mind you "the things we forgot."
So, just to please her, we went on over there and went in. The young man at the
door bowed and smiled the same as. if we were the President and First Lady. He asked
x what he might do for us and I said "handkerchiefs and socks and collars." The polite
young man took us over to the left of the store and called another nice young fellow
and paid: "Will you please show this gentleman and lady some handkerchiefs and col
lars and hosiery."
. Well, I never saw such politeness and good manners. Of course I don't have much
to do with stores. That's a woman's job, I think. While we looked at collars the
man asked us where we were from. When we told him he grinned and said that we
. ought to know him because he was born and nearly raised on the creek four mile3
" above our farm. Well, what do you think of that? Meeting up with one of our old
. neighbor boys right off. Of course we remembered him and when his folks sold out
" ' and moved away. In a mTmrte, we were good friends and he surely did wait on us fine.
I said it was a happy meeting and that I never expected to see anyone from our county
in a big store. The young fellow said : "Well, now folks, I'll tell you that you can find
a salesman or saleswoman from almost any part of the state, right here in this store.
JThat's why people call it the friendly store. You' meet so many old friends here." fc
After we had bought what we needed and a new tie that Mary said I needed, I
could see that she was just dying to get around and look at some of the women's
fixings, so we told our friend good-bye and .after that I just followed Mary.
I'd rather plow all day than traipse around in a big store but I wanted to please
Mary. So we went all around and looked and Mary asked questions and priced things
she had no notion of buying. Everywhere we went in that store people were polite and
We talked to one nice girl who came from our county seat and she told lis about
a new department on the top floor where they had fixed up just for boys and girls things.
Mary said she'd have to see that because she was thinking of taking home a few little
fixings for the youngsters.
We got on the elevator and rode up to the top. The girl that runs the elevator
had red hair and looked a lot like my son John's sweetheart but she said she was from
(Northeast Kentucky and that boys and girls store is just wonderful! No store like
that when I was a boy.
Well, I can't begin to tell you about the things we saw up there,
better hand at that kind of work and so I'll let her tell you.
Mary, she is a
