Caruso, the world's greatest tenor, died in Italy Monday, He made ten millions of dollars in the last twenty years and spent nine millions. Sentiment tn Mingo county, W. Va., has rapidly changed of late and the good citizens have broken' their silence in favor of law and order. For a time they were Intimidated, but now they are outspoken and hundreds have been sworn in as officers. This means the early ending of the awful conditions there. , This is the first year in. which wo men In Kentucky have been permitted to take full part in a primary election. It will be interesting lo note whether or not they will raise the standard by voting for the cleanest candidates, as the suffragists argued they would do If given the ballot. The' women hold the balance of power and can nomi nate those who have the best records behind them If they so desire. This first test will be an Important one and it is hoped the result will show that women suffrage is going to -prove a good thing. Louisa Js growing steadily.

SPARKS, CANDIDATE FOR COUNTY JUDGE TO THE VOTERS OF LAWRENCE COUNTYl In asking for your support for this Important office I b.li.v you arei ntitl.d to know what I atand for, to I ofljer the following brief statement: - If elected I will use the sam diligence and judgment in handling the, county's affairs thst my own busin has always received. ' - . I will do all in my power to build and maintain good road for all sections) of Lawrence county. I favor expending on the roads in each magisteriel district as much money as it pays into the rosd fund, and also a proportionate part of the execs paid by th Louisa flistriets. (The Louisa district psy about one-half of the entire road and bridge fund.) ' I favor dividing road into abort (action, 2, 3 or 4 miles eaoh, and letting contracts st publio outcry to farmers to keep them in oondition, thus Insuring constant Care. If elected I shsll serve all sections and all people alike, rsgardl of loca tion, politic or personal relations. In othr word, I will serve the whole county impartially. I favor repeal of th six-dsy rosd working law, a I believe a patrol sys tem will take ear of th roads better. I will fight extravagance and will let the people know how every dollar of their money I spnt I am BJ year old a native of Lawrence county, having lived all my life at Martha . postoff Ice, where farming And merchandising was my business. I moved to Louisa last year mainly because my son and son-in-law desired to locate there. MERIDETH B. SPARKS. press forward. A backward step taken now will mean a backset for years. The opportunities are opening up to us if we keep things moving in the right direction. Let's go forward! To the Voters of Lawrence County As the primary Is practically at a close and I have almost canvassed the county, I wish to state that I have said nothing about any ot my opponents that I would not say to them face to .face. I have no apologies to make. have made a clean fight and therefore It called upon, I can repeat and prove any statement that I have made. Here Is what I have to aay about the low down, contemptible rascal who drove a drummer wagon thru Georges creek, stopped at a- blacksmith shop and told the good people of Gamblll precinct, knowingly, a wilful lie. He la not worthy ot being called a human being. He Is not as good as a common cur. He told that I owned a farm in the Blaine section and that I furnished money to keep the hard road from go Ing through Georges creek. This Is a lie and the one who told it is a low down, contemptible liar. He said there would be affidavits to prove that I did this. Now is the time for him to pro duce these affidavit. I offer one hundred dollars (1100.00) to any one who will produce such an affidavit was never even asked for one cent for this purpose and knew nothing of it in any form. Come In and search the records, see if I ever owned one foot ot ground outside of the cwrporatinn of Louisa. : Here i my idea of a liar, Just like the one who told this lie to the good citisens of Gamblll precinct He is a long, lean, lantern-jawed, rabbit-ear ed, hatchet-faced, goose-necked, buck kneed, reel footed, pigeon-toed, pus illanimous kind of a thing with a char acter not half so good as this descrip tion. (I would not believe htm on oath near so quick as I would a criminal who has served a sentence for perjury. This is intended for the guilty one. so if the shoe fits, wear it It is too good for a contemptible cur who will lie without a cause. Watch f of the gentleman whose countenance fell when asked whether or not he fought the road proposition. Look over" the records and see who owns a farm or farms, who would be Interested as to the location of the road. Watch tor the fellow who agl tales this and you are sure to see the one who Is back of this falsehood which has forced me to make this DUbliC. N I stand for my own rights and It nominated and elected I will stand for the rights of tho good people of Law rence county. I ask you, ladles and gentlemen, to consider thoroughly the qualifications ot each ot us and vote for your best interest as good citizens should do. I hav no farm to look after. I do not deal In mules and horses or other stock. If elected I have nothing to do but give you people the benefit of my entire time and In this way I can give you people better service and more attention than any of my opponents. So when you have seriously and earn estly considered tbla matter I hope you vlll vote for H. B. Muncy and receive full benefits of your entitled rights. Thanking you each and all, I remain, Respectfully yours, H. B. MUNCY.. (Advertisement) Platform of Jed Borders, Candidate for Co.

It was after I had been asked by some ot the citisens of the county to make the race for Magistrate that I consented and made my announce ment and I want to aay I did not do that for what I expected to get out of It In cash, but I am a taxpayer In this county and I want to see the people's money put to the very best use pos sible. I don't think it is necessary for me to aay I am In favor of roads all over the county. I dlaim, to have put more money and , time In the public roads ot this county than any other man In It It Is well known through out lhe county that I hav followed up the courts at my own expense, helped pay attorneys, when I did not have a vote in the matter, to secure the peo ple's rights. Ask any man that has been County Judge ot Lawrence coun ty court for the past twenty years or any member of the court tor the same time. If I did not always contend for fair distribution of the road and bil.lge funds, and I still say If I am elected 1 am going to do my best to see that each voting precinct gets Its prorated part t am willing to hoid coutis In any part of the district that Is necessary to serve the citisens or to enforce the law at any coat All I ask of the voters Is to take - my record. Some say I want a road through my arm. I am glad to say that road is already built and I paid for the moxt ot it.
