"PLOATERS" HAVE DISAP-
KENTUCKY NOW EOURTH
STRAIN TOO GREAT
What has become of the voter
that insisted upon have a drink be
fore he would go and vote? When
prohibition came he threatened nev
er to vote again, but by this time
be has gotten used to it and become
accustomed to exercise suffrage
without a stimulant.
Before prohibition, when whisky
was regarded by many as an elec
tion essential, such a voter had to
be reckoned with. Ordinarily he
would resent being termed a "float
er." but he could not be budged in
the direction of the polls until he
had been furnished with a "mule's
earful" of mean whisky. After
that he was willing to vote.
Another bane of the election
worker is the voter that must be
sent for repeatedly before he can be
induced to go to the polls. He even
has been known to pass the door of
the voting place, but with a per
verseness that is aggravating to the
workers he will not vote until it
suits his fancy, usually just before
the polls close. Ordinarily-he is a
partisan and cannot be influenced
in casting his vote but he keeps the
workers on his side in hot water
until he is marked off the list.

BLUE GEASS NUESEEIES,
In three months during the suin
mer past, Kentucky went from fifth
to fourth place among all stakes in
the number of farmers who have
enrolled in the nation-wide "Better-Sires-Better-Stock"
agreeing to use nothing but pure
bred sires in all their breeding
work, according to the latest quar
terly report on the project which
has just been received at the Col
lege of Agriculture. During those
three months, from July X until
October 1. more farmers were en
rolled in the movement in Union
county than in any other county in
the country, according to the re
port. County Agent L. C. Brewer,
working in co-operation with the
college extension division, enrolled
50 farmers in the drive for better
livestock. Of the 573 enrollments
that were obtained throughout the
United States during the three
months named, 246 came from Ken
tucky. The drive, for better livestock,
which is being carried on in all
States of the country by State ag
ricultural colleges in co-operation
with the United States Department
of Agriculture, is now in its fourth
year the State of Kentucky stood
at the bottom of the list
of all States when the work start
ed but has made steady progress
and at the present time is preceded
by Ohio, Virginia and Nebraska in
the order named. Oldham county,
where County Agent Gordon B.
Nance is directing the work, has
taken a prominent place in the
drive, that county being one of 15
in which more than 100 farmers
Up to the present time, Oldham
county is second, Christian third,
Wayne fourth and Fulton fifth.
Other Kentucky counties in which
good work is being done in the
drive to improve live stock are
Todd. Allen, Barren. Carroll, Muhl
enberg and Nelson. County agents
in many counties of the State are
making a definite start toward
bettering livestock conditions by
making livestock surveys to find
out the number of grade, scrub and
purebred animals in their districts.

RICE NEXT KENTUCKY CROP?
The recent successful experiment
of a Southern Indiana farmer in
growing a crop of rice that netted a
normal yield to the acre, raises the
question as to whether the same
thing cannot be done in Kentucky.
Climatic and other conditions are
about the same, it is pointed out,
and the soil in some sections of the
State may be adapted to the culti
vation of rice in paying quantities.
Whether the cultivation of rice
has ever been attempted in Ken
tucky is not known, but in the
light of the southern Indiana expe
rience it might be worth a trial.
The production of rice cultiva
tion in the United States has been
credited to Thomas Jefferson, the
"Sage of Monticello," who while
Minister to Italy, is said to have
surreptitiously filled his pockets
with rice for seeding. Prior to that
the crafty Italian growers are said
to have prevented the propagation
of rice elsewhere by running the
rice through a machine that bored
a hole in each kernel and prevented
Many of the props for which
Kentucky is famous were first

crop of Kentucky bluegrass seed ill
"Kentucky has been sold by grow
ers, while in Missouri all but about
5 was reported as having been
sold by October 17. The pool of
growers in Kentucky, which con
trols practically all of the farmer
owned seed remaining unsold in
that State, is not satisfied with pre
vailing offers of about $1.35-$1.50
per bushel for rough cured seed.
They are expecting about $23 per
100 pounds for recleaned seed and
it is reported that they intend to
establish a selling price in the near
future. Some of the Missouri deal
ers have been offering $1.60 per
bushel tor stray lots or rough cur- j
ed seed outside of the pool in Ken
tucky and for the very small
amount of good seed still unsold in
the Missouri district.
During the week ending October
21, about 33,000 pounds of Ken
tucky bluegrass se,ed was exported
from New York to France. Seeds
men's selling prices have advanced
materially during the past few
weeks and average of '$25-26. per
100 pounds for 21-pound seed.
LOCATING OLD STATIONS IN
The locating of thq fortified sta
tions used by the pioneers in the
opening up of Kentucky's wilder
ness in the seventeen hundreds has
long been an interesting study, but
it is only recently that definite in
formation has been obtained con
cerning many of these pioneer sta
tions in Central Kentucky, and the
theme was discussed at the meeting
of the Bradford Historical Society
by the president, Professor A. M.
Miller, who has done much re
search along this line. In the offi
cial list the, following are credited
to Bourbon county: '

numerous like finds that have made
Kentucky a veritable treasure trove.
Every now and then, some hidden
treasure is unearthed in the State,
and the aggregate of such finds in

sent a large sum.
While 'the Pulaski county find is
supposed to have been buried in
pioneer times, most of the hidden,
treasure unearthed vin the State
seems to have been secreted during
the war between the States, when
Kentucky, owing to the peculiar
conditions that existed by reason of
the intense sectional feeling, offer
ed an incentive for hiding money
In some cases tihe coinage dates
of the hidden treasure establish the
fact that it was buried during that
period, and the theory is that fche
owners either failed to mark mark
the hiding-place or died durnig the
war and left no evidence of hidden
Some finds of hidden treasure are
never reported by those that un
earth them. Only a few years ago
the circulation of ancient coins in a
cerfiain section of the S.tate was
traced to a man who it developed

to $15,000 while plowing in field.
Buried treasure has been found in

violent that more of it will he unearthed
