THE GRIDIRON FIELD
Coach Ward is working the Paris
High School squad harder this
week than he has ever worked
them during his two year's con
nection with the team. , There is
more interest in the game with
Georgetown Friday than there has
been so far this year. Thirty-six
football players are on the field
from 3 o'clock until dark for the
remaining games on our schedule.
The High School team has had a
highly successful season, tying Som
erset in Somerset, after Somerset
had defeated Frankfort in Frank
fort, and after Frankfort had de
feated Xexington and Louisville
Male High School makes the Paris
High School feel that they have a
Teal football team ami they are de
termined to clean up with George
town this week, Versailles next
week, and Covington High School
on Thanksgiving Day. The Paris
School team has been growing bet
ter for the lastthree or four years,
and next year with Hughes High
School, Cincinnati, one of the Lou
isville High Schools, and Dayton
High School on the Paris schedule,
will give Paris one of the most at
tractive schedules ' of any, high
school in the South.
It is doubtful if there is a strong
er High School coach in the South
than Clay Ward, at one time Capt.
of the University of Virginia team,
and who was left tackle on the fa
mous team that defeated Yale 10
to 0.- Paris will furnish the largest
crowd for Friday's game that has
ever been reached. Nash, of George
town, and Arnsparger, of Centre,
will have charge of the game as
To-morrow afternoon the M. M. I.
and Lexington Model High School
elevens will stage a contest on the
M. M. I. field. Both teams are
about evenly matched, and a fine
game is anticipated, with the
cadets confident of taking the win
ner's end of the struggle.
The following invitation has been
extended the members of the Paris
High School football team:
"It is the pleasure of the alumni

The Burley Tobacco Growers' Co
operative Association won its first
suit against a contract breaker j
Tuesday morning, when Circuit
Judge James C. Dedman, of Cyn
thiana, special judge in the place
of Judge Robert L. Stout, who is
ill, upheld the validity of the con
tract in the case of the association
against Garrett Watts, wealthy
Fayette county farmer, overruled,
his demurrer to the association'
petition and gave judgment against
Watts for $325 and costs in tne
After , examining the demurrer,
which was filed by Judge George C.
Webb, of Lexington, representing
Mr. Watts, Judge Dedman , signed
the judgment. Because of the fact
that there was some question as to
the amount of tobacco actually
grown by Mr. Watts, and, there;
fore, of the amount of tobacco pe'
should"" deliver to the association,
the judgment against Mr. Waits
was made $325 and he pays the
costs of the triah
This decision, which will not be
appealed, confirms the right of the
association to the delivery of crops
pledged to it, as the judgment of
the court is that "the contract
sued .on herein, which is one of a
number of identical contracts en
tered into by the plaintiff with dif
ferent persons, is binding on the de
fendant as a member of said asso
ciation, and is believed by associa
tion officials as most likely to pre
vent further attempts at "dump
ing" by members disinclined to re
gard their word as binding when it
may conflict with their immediate
financial interest, in their opinion,
to do so.

A great deal of interest is being
manifested in the additional enroll
ment of children in the kindergar
ten. Miss Power and Miss Wild,
the very efficient young women
who are teaching the kindergarten,
have reduced the rate of tuition to
$5 per month and a number of new
pupils have enrolled. This reduc
tion is effective immediately and
any person deciding to enroll a
child can enter them at once-and
get the advantage of five weeks tui
tion for $5. Any prospective pupils
'for the second term, which begins
after Christmas, must be enrolled
before December 1. Paris is very
lucky in having 'such a splendid
kindergarten and a hearty co-operation
is expected from all parents
of children from 3 to six years.

Crow began serving his sixty-day
jail sentence to which was added a
fine of $300 for selling moonshine
liquor. Crow was placed under ar
rest some time ago by Sheriff M.
Peale Collier and was tried before
County Judge George Batterton,
from whose judgment he filed an
appeal and furnished the required
bond. Other cases against Crow
were filed away conditioned on his
future good behavior.
The time of the Court Wednesday
was partly taken up in considering
'the case of Robert Link, Eighth
street groceryman. By an appeal
Link was found guilty of having
moonshine liquor in his possession,
and his punishment fixed at thirty
days in jail, and a fine of $300.
At a former trial in the County
Court he was fined $100 and given
a jail sentence of thirty days.
