' However, two large plant,B are in course of con struction, one in Louisville and an other in Lexington, which will pro duce much of the lumricatlng oil used here by the end of 1921. .,' , Recent tests throughout the country showed that the gasoline made in Louisville is far above the average sold in other cities.

Here is what the Cincinnati Enquir-' er has to say about a well known Pike An Interesting character entered the races for the Legislature this week in Rev. N. T. Hopkins, Baptist, of the mountain section. He hails from I'ike county. About 20 years ago Rev. Mr, Hopkins contested the election of Con gressman Joseph Kendall and was seated by a Republican Congress on the last day of the session, receiving $10,000 for hut day's pay. He belongs to the sect which opposes the partici pation of women in politics on the ground of tho admonition of Paul that the voice of woman is not to be raised in the councils of the church. Rev. Mr. Hopkins therefore probably would have a tough time gaining an indorse ment from the League of Women Voters.': .

All doubt as to the right of women to act as jurors was brushed aside by Charles I. Dawson, Attorney-General, In a written opinion stating that the Federal Constitution and Kentucky law lve them the right as citizens to. serve on juries. " The adoption of the Nineteenth Amend ment to the Federal Constitution en franchising women, made citizens of them within the meaning of the term, according to Mr. Dawson. - The inquiry as to the rights of women to act as Jurors came from Louisville, where there has been con siderable activity recently In obtaining women as Jurors. The first qualifi cations for Jury service, Attorney-General Dawson says, is that of citizen ship, the second is that he or she must ne cl ' years oiu aim iavu .unstiiy u. householder. He has .no doubt that any woman accepted for Jury service would be able to qualify along all of these lines. SMOKING IS BARRED. Charleston, W. Va.
