NOTICE TO PATRONS OF 6CHOOL DISTRICTS ' AND TEACHERS The law says that children are al lowed to attend the school which is most convenient to them. This law with all Its provisions Is found on page 42, section- 89 -of th Common School Laws of Kentucky. Children going from one district to another because they do not Ilka the teacher Is forbid den. If the teacher does not measure up to the standard required by law he or she should be reported and dealt with In the word and spirit of law. The- schools are estaollshed for the thlldren and ndt the teachers. Please follow the law and then you will not have to ask m to allow you to send to some other district. I hnv no right td-change the word ing of the law, so it is Impossible for me to give you a permit to go from one district to another, unless tha law warrants It. I wish to say to all patrons, giva the teacher your support in every way that Is right. Co-operation is the success of any business and more especially that of . school. If the teacher in your district fails by negligence or in any way that they are able to avoid report them and have a transfer. Also, keep In mind that teachers are scarce In" Lawrence county aa well as other counties In the state. The schools of Lawrence are all aa . signed except one and at present no application in my office to fill the va cant school, I have two teachers now teaching whose certiflcale. will explrs In September. I feel if the patrons of each district will stand by the teacher that we, will be able to give each 'child practically the same chance for an education In Lawrence county. I wish to say to the teachers If you fail to do your duty as a teacher should and the proof is made that you are neglecting your duty then you will be dealt with according to the law. Yours truly, . DOCK JORDAN, Supt. Lawrence Co. Schools. Mr. and Mrs. J- F. Wright, Mr. and Mrs. S. J. Wright, Mr. and Mrs. Lisle Howe, Mr. and Mrs. Max Damron and Hugh Wright, of Ceredo, W.

Is nearer nakedness than It has been at any time since the "close of the Napoleonic wars. In a recent1 review of present European conditions the I American relief, admdnatratlon an Inounoad: "From the standpoint of food conditions are better; from, the standpoint of clothing, they are worse. All observers agree that the need will reach a climax next winter. Where no clothes have been bought since 1915, except by the sal of household articles and heirlooms, the accumulated stores of years are bound to be ex now been reached in most families, hausted in time, and ' that limit has This Is as true in the homes of the formerly well-to-do, who are the new poor, as In the hmMS of l borer and peasants. The chief reason why Europeans cannot buy clothes In the depreciation . tk.l. ............ ' A ..-I ..,.. - II, ,1a i realize what havoc this depreciation nits wrought In the economic structure of the old world. It has brought the value of what was once a comfortable Income in Vienna 15,00b crowns or 11 000 a year to $30. Polish money has fallen twice as far as the money of Austria: In Warsaw 10,000 marks, once worth $2,600 In American money, will now bring only $10, The effect of this money situation upon clothing is clear when it 4s real ised that Central and Eastern Europe Import their clothing or the raw ma terials of clothing from countries whose money is normal or nearly nor mal. Hence, In Vienna a suit of cloth es costs a university profesanr three months' salary. A pair of shoes can not .be bought In Poland without a family's going hungry for a month. SALYERSVILLE SOLDIER KILLED BY C&O. TRAIN The Ashland Independent1; A frac tured skull, received when he was hit by Big Sandy train 38 early Saturday caused the death of Kanoy Fletcher, 25, a discharged -marine of Salyera vllle, at 8 o'clock Sunday night. His relative will take, charge of the body and It will probably be sent to Sal yersvlll. Fletcher was struck by either a coach step or an oil box on the train while he was sleeping near the railroad tracks, above Hampton City Saturday morning. He was lying with his head on the ties and his feet down the bank and it Is believed the noise of the passing train so frightened him that he raised his head and was struck by the step or oil box. He received a fractured skull, a broken Jaw bone and his teeth were knocked out. Ha was rushed to the King's Daughters' hospital where little hope was held for his life that day. He seemed to rally late Saturday but early Sunday sank Into unconscious ness from which he never awoke. Fletcher was discharged from the Marine Corps last Wednesday In New York and was on his way home at the lime of the tragedy. Several persons saw him in Cstlettsburg Friday, as he waa easily distinguished because of his uniform.. The accident which caused his drat!) happened about two miles - above Hampton City. The train was stopped Immediately and the unconscious man picked up and placed In a car driven by Charles Fannin, Jr., of Buchanan, and then driven to Catlettsburg where he was transfcred to an ambulance and taken to the local hospital. Two Men Hurt in . Automobile Accident Jas. M. Rice of Two Mile and his grandson, Johnle Rice, were both In jured in an automobile accident last Sunday evening near Vessie.

Overhauling of rates in I the Fordney tariff bill will be necessary j In order to permit effective admlnls- waa told by George C. Davla, chief of the comparative values bureau in the New York custom house. Mr. Davis declared further that If congress adopted the American valuation plan of levying Import duties, even more radical changes in the rates would have to follow, ' The American valuation plan as a substitute for the present system of assessing duties on foreign 'values was at Lacked by the customs official, who paw In It the "cause for unending liti gation and a general tying up of the Importing business." : He added that, as drawn, some of th rates In the bill, administered on an American valua tion buala, meant a "posltve .prohibi tion" of importations. He did not, however, enumerate the commodities of which he spoke. RIGID PROHIBITION LAW IN WE8T VIRGINIA Since the prohibition law passed by the recent session of the legislature went into effect July 2uth, West Vir ginia possesses one of the most drastic and far-reaching - antl-llquor laws of any state In the union. The bill, which is known as the West Virginia prohl bitlon law. Includes federal and Stat constitutional amendments and the acts of congress known as the Webb Kenyon law, parcel post regulations and the' amendments passed by the legislature of 1921. The law absolutely forbids any per son possessing at any time liquor of any description, 'whether It be for me dlctnal purposes or otherwise. . Without a doubt the most drastic of the new law is that contained in sec tion 37, which says that the finding of any liquor In the possession of any person other than commercial whiskies which were purchased when it was lawful to do so, shall be prima facie evidence that the same is moonshine. It goes further and says that It is un lawful for anyone' to have In their possession moonshine liquor, so that the mere possession of any kind of liquor after July 20 will be a violation of the law and will subject the person, if found guilty, to a heavy One or im prisonment or both.

Marble which com pares favorably with the famous Ten nessee product has been found In Bar ren' county by Prof. Charles H. Rich ardson, Syracuse University, who is making an economic survey of build ing stone In Kentucky for the State Department of Geology and Dr. Willard Jlllson. Stato Geologist. The Barren county marble take a high polish and Is found in large quantities. One fault In Kentucky of those engaged In quarrying, he said, is the failure of operators to go back, of the "sap" rock exposed to erosion and staining. Kentucky's best known building stone, of course, is the Bowling Green white limestone, of which the Execu tive Mansion Is built, and Kentucky bluestone, Rowan county, which have o, wide sale outside the State. Good stone, however, is found all over Ken tucky, with tha exception of the Pur chase, which Is deeply overlaid with alluvial deposit.. The Tyron limestone found along the Kentucky River, he ald, Is one of the best grades of lime- atone in the State and of this the old State Capitol was built in 1828. Many residences in Frankfort are construct ed of the same material. ' Excellent stone also has been uncovered in the, Big Sandy Valley. . J PIKEVILLE MAN DIES.

I ERNST TO SUPPORT ROBSION MEASURE, BOGGS ASSERTS STATE HIGHWAY HEAD DENIES ATTITUDE OF BOARD IS j ; SELFISH. Frankfort, Ky.. July 2. For the State Highway Commission not to sup port the Robslon Federal Aid bill "would be a breach of faith toward hundreds of thousands of persons scattered th length and breadth of Kentucky," . said H. Green . Garrett, chairman of the .. commission, in a statement Issued Monday, taking cog nizance of the assertion of Albert Ter stegge, president of the Louisville Au tomobile Club, that the commission is for the continuation of the present plan because it "wants to keep the prestige of power. Senator R. P. Ernst, in tu letter re celved Monday by Joe 8. Boggs, State Highway Engineer, wrote: "It is my Intention to support the Robslon bill," This makes the Kentucky, delegation in Congress a unit for the measure. ...'.-'." Counties Raised Money, Chairman Garrett's statement in part follows: I "Persons In scores of counties lo- Icated along the Ohio River Road from Paducah to Louisville; the Midland Trail., running east and west through the center of th State; the Dixie Highway in the eastern section; the Jackson Highway, north and south through the center, and the Dixie Bee Line and Central Route in Western Kentucky, to mention only the. most ambitious projects embraced in the adopted Federal aid scheme, have vot ed bond issues and raised money by subscription to meet the Federal aid : "The work is completed In some counties, under way in others and awaiting further Federal actions In others. These people put up their money with the understanding that the work was to be prosecuted to com pletion, that the roads they were fi nancing would 'get somewhere.' "This commission would be in a be coming attitude, wouldn't it, if we should indorse a plan to turn over to a national commission authority to abandon the plan and apply future Federal appropriations to grand trunk lines across the continent, : leaving these Kentucky counties that have put money Into the system with only brok en sections of Improved highway lead ing to their county lines -with no out let? ' :! . ..- '. v. Trunk Roads Ar Affected. "The Federal aid system agreed on by th Federal and State highway au thorities, embraces the major trunk lines of the State highway system adopted by the General Assembly. That it Is popular Is shown by the way counties in all parts of the State have been meeting th Federal appropria tions. t "It Is the kind of Federal aid for a rural State like Kentucky, its great est length east and west and its prin cipal railroads and navigable rivers running north and south, and broken across by mountain ranges, through which as yet no railroad has extended. Pikeville Jail Opened -With a Broomstick PikevHle, Ky.. July 21. With the aid of a key made 'from a broom handle, A. D.

INDEPENDENT OIL MEN ' ' FORM NEW ORGANIZATION Tulsa Okla. At a meeting' of inde pendent "oil operators representing ev ery oil field in the United States the National Association of IndependentOdl Producers was organized. Member ship in the association was restricted to persons In no way affiliated With with the Standard Oil Company, its subsidiaries or any Interstate pipe line. W. H. Gray, of Tulsa, who practically organized the fight on behalf of a tariff on crude oil in the lower House of Congress, was elected President of the organizaion. H. E. Steel, of Tulsa, was elected Secretary .and E. H. Poe, of Okmulgee, Treasurer. In accepting office Mr. Gray stated that he will devote the enaulng 12 months to working in behalf of a tariff on crude oil; for cheaper freight rates on petroleum products and for more liberal treatment from the Federal Reserve Banking Board In Its dealings with the independent oil producers. Mr. Gray was the author of a reso lution calling upon the Federal Trades Commission for an investigation of the Star.daVd Oil Company In its purchas ing of oil properties, which report shall b made public. The resolution also demanded legislation restricting pipe lines in the acquiring of oil properties. In a speech supporting this resolu tion, which was unanimously adopted, Mr. Gray stated the Standard Oil Co. now owns 60 per cent of all the pro duction In the United States, and if It la not restricted along this line will within a few years own 85 per cent of all producing properties in this coun try. A resolution thanking members of Congress who supported a tariff on crude oil was adopted. The convention in a resolution asked an Import duty on crude petroleum of two cents a gallon regardless of gravity- ' ' MARTIN COUNTY DEPUTY SHERIFF SHOT TO DEATH The following is from the William son (W. Va.) News of Monday: Suffering from three gunshot wounds Deputy Sheriff Henry Blackburn of Martin county, Ky., was brought to the Williamson hospital yesterday af ternoon and died within a short time after his arrival. Two bullets from a high powered rifle had struck him in the breast, and, ranging downward, passed through his stomach and made several perforations in the smaller in testines. One bullet struck his. hand and made a flesh wound extending above his elbow. - Enroute here he bled profusely and was so weak that little hope was en tertained that surgical skill could avail anything. - ' ' : . Word came here that the shooting was done by Harrison and James Moore, brothers. The scene of the trouble Is laid in Wolf Creek, several miles from Kermlt. Early this after noon the Moores bad not beeri appre hended, so far as was known in Ker mlt f '' ' Two stories widely at variance, as to the cause of the shooting have resulted. One is to the effect that Blackburn had undertaken to arrest the Moores, his reputed brothers-in-law, who were drinking heavily at the time. They resented his intrusion and opened fire. The other story attributes the tra gedy to a family dispute, or to an old grudge, and makes mention of a case of alienated affections. , Blackburn was 37 years old, a big muscular man, a resident of Inez, and a deputy sheriff for the last four years. The body was shipped last night to the decedent's home. VOTE FOR SHANNON. Webbville, Ky., July 26. I think the suggestion that Law rence and Elliott rotate for two terms each in the Legislature is a better ar rangement1 than rotating on single terms, because a Representative is a great deal more efficient the second term than he is the first. The members who have been there before always take the lead because of their exper ience. The sessions are short and ev ery day counts largely in the work to be done. The members who know what move to make from the very first day get the Jump on the new mem bers. We have a Lawrence county man offering for the second term this year, E. E. Shannon. He Is a real business man, one who does things and wastes no time in doing them. He has the en ergy, ability, character and experience, and when the session starts he will be "off' with the best of them. He has plans for legislation that is needed. Everybody knows what he stands for as he has announced it publicly. Mr. Shannon has always been pro gressive, standing for tha betterment of conditions among the people and for public improvement of all kinds, roads, schools, etc. I believe he can and will do more effective work in the Legis lature next winter than any man we could get. If the people would always put men of this kind into the Impor tant offices they would get results of the right kind. ' The women are voting this time and I hope they will look into this matter and see how important it Is to them and their children to send Mr. Shannon back to the Legislature this time. A CITIZEN. There will be a pie social here Sat urday night, August 6. Proceeds for the benefit of the church. Everybody como and bring a pie. VIOLnT. "OLD KENTUCKY HOME" NOW STATE PROPERTY Louisville Ky.
