FIELDS, of Carter county, as a candi date for the nomination for Congress In the Ninth District of Kentucky, subject to the action of the Democrat-, lo party In the primary election to be held on Saturday. August B, '1982. The announcement of Congressman Fields for re-election appears In the NEWS this week. He Is well known to the people 6f the th district as a faithful official. :: Home coming week for Lawrence county next fall Is a popular sugges tion, judging by the expressions heard on all sides. It is not too early to re- '. ceive lists of persons who have moved away and also suggestions as to de tails of the affair. The Big Sandy ; News will be glad to receive all such matter and will turn it over to the proper committees after they shall ihave been selected. The managers for Senator New. of Indiana, In the campaign for renoml nation last week, waged the battle on the ground that the vindication . of President Harding was at stake. He lost and now the managers hasten to , .declare that the result is not a slap at the President. Consistency is a Jewel not found amongst the treasures of politicians. The new Eastern Kentucky Normal School belongs within the district cov ered by the association of counties formed some time ago with Jno. E. Buckingham as president. The propo sition from the very beginning con templated its location in this section. The representatives of the philan thropic organisation that has made such a generous offer for this school have investigated the situation fully and reported that It should oe locatea in tho eastern border territory. This reDort was made by unbiased men from outside the State, men who ire free to look at the situation as it now exists- and competent to see as far in to the future as possible. They see the development of the boundless min eral wealth Just starting; the increase in population going forward by leaps and hounds; the crying need for bet ter educational facilities at our doors. They have studied the character of the native population and noted the pure strain of Anglo-Saxon blood running through this people. They have weigh ed the importance of educating them so that they may take hold of the de velopment of their own country rather than leaving this work to the advent of foreigners; and that their fine na tive, ability may be turned into chan nels that best serve their state and nation. Unfortunately, a situation has aris en that threatens-to defeat the pri mary objects of this most laudable en terprise. The full power of the strong organization now functioning on this matter will be used to prevent a mis take of that kind.

SKAGGS JOHN 2t H.OUFFY Announced Candidate for Congress in Ninth District. Hon. H. C. Duffy, of Harrison coun t'y. has formally announced as a can didate for the DemocVatlo nomination for Congressman in the Ninth District, following a series of conferences with prominent party men from different counties who have been insistent that he enter the race. Although Mr. Duf fy has represented this county In the Legislature for ten years, he has nev er sought office. The onice nas al ways sought him. ' He was Speaker of the House at Frankfort in the legis lative session of 1916. and the special session of 1917, and has a wide ao quaintance over the State.' '.V- "iiiT'-ft'- -. H. C. DUFFY & Mr. Duffy lives on his farm a few miles from Cynthlana, and farming is his occupation. While a young man in Tennessee he graduated in law at the University of Virginia and practiced for some time In the courts of Ten nessee, but, falling in health, retired to the ' farm, and has continued as a farmer. He has been called by the Democrats of Harrison county : to be their candidate for the Legislature on Ave occasions, and has won his spurs at Frankfort. Now, says Mr. Duffy, he has bad so many letters and inquiries from coun ties of the district and the pressure to take up the standard of old-fashioned democrscv become so strong, that he feels he should accede to the wish es of his friends and enter the lists. He is an old-fashioned DemocraUthere can be no doubt of that. He does not believe in fads and "isms," He stands for the faith of the fathers of the par ty; he is deeply .grounded in the prin ciples of government as proclaimed by Jefferson He does not believe in usurpation by the general govern ment of powers and duties delegated to the States. He does not believe In State governments arrogating the pow ers and duties of county and local governments. He does not believe in increasing restriction of individual rights. He is opposed to the growth of Federal power, and recognizes It as insidious and hard to combat. -,. Indications lead to the belief that the people of the whole country are growing anxious for the safety and perpetuation of our government as a true uc.moc.rucy. The signs of the times are unmistakable that there is a wide spread desire to get back to the sim ple principles of government under which the country thrived and grew strong and his friends beileve Mr. Duffy is the one man in this district who best embodies and who can best defend the liberty and Interests of the people. Reports from the mountain lounuei indicate that ,the Democrats of tha- section will welcome a candidate from Harrison county.whlch for many yeara has been the Gibraltar of the district and which has never been honored with a nomination. The old feeling of sectionalism has been abolished. The district stands as a unit against the aggressions of the Republican party on the rights of the people, ami the Incident of a candidates residence will no ldnger be taken into consider ation. - What Is wanted is the man who represents what the people deslr in government. Mr. DufTy proposes to make a clean fight for the nomination. ,, He is not given to abusing opponents. He nev did it. He will form such organiza tions as are necessary for a proper handling of his campaign; ne win present his views in a caim, oispaa- . innate, stra KDtiorwara way, leave the question of wno snau do Pnnressman to the Judgment or me voters of the district. . ynuuwm nemoerat.

Funeral services were conducted at the home on Saturday morning by Rev. H. B. Hewlett. The body was taken to the George Short graveyard on Blaine for burial. REAL ESTATE DEAL. Dr. L. S. Hays has purchased from M. a. Berry a house and lot on Lock avenue, near Moore & Burton's store. It Is said he will move his family here from Charley. GRIFFITHS CREEK. "' Perhaps it is that Dutch blood cour ses through my veins and again it may come from the fact that when I doJ try to farm I endeavor to produce the most crop with the least "draw bar pull," namely effort, have noted and stored a few facts thit may be a benefit te some one during the com ing season. Usual articles in mod ern farm papers are all right In the ory, but in practice are given out In terms and in such gigantic ways as to make a mountain farmer feel in reading them that he had been left out in the cold but such is not always the case, whether your crop be in the mountains or in the big corn belt there are. a few general rules if fol lowed, greatly increase ' your pile of corn or other crops. An old saying that " crop put In (he ground right was half raised" was not Car from right, Then again It Is much alcer to prepare a good seed bed In the balmy days of spring than to -fight hostile weeds In July and it Is a sure fact that If a proper seed bed is made and a crop is planted Cultivation Is a much smaller item. Next to the seed bed comes a dust mulch which should be maintained throughout the grow ing season. A dust mulch is nothing more than a thin blanket of soft earth two or more Inches deep through which the dampness stored- up In old mother earth cannot escape easy to the air above. Lay a plank down on a piece of hard, dry ground and go back In a couple of days and you will find the ground damp beneath and the dirt loose. Why? - Because the dampness from the earth that was drawn to the surface by the heat of the sun could not escape. A dust mulch of course does not do the Job as thorough as a plank but shallow and frequent culti vation to a great extent does this very thing. To let corn lay three weeks and then use .long plows enough to cover up weeds regardless of the corn roots that are running across the rows is what goes a long way to make our mountain counties Import counties Instead of export ones. I carried on i test of shallow frequent cultivation for three years, using nothing but a garden plow for its cultivation. When ears of corn were ripened and hard enough to shell from the cob the fod ler was green to the ground. Thinking I was using too fertile ground for my tests I transferred my teat plot to the cornfield selecting five rows on upper side of field. This was all turned and prepared together, except the cultiva tion which was done entirely with the garden plow and as the ground was too rolling to plow both ways I used a garden rake for tearing out weeds between the hills, pulling with my hands from hills. The third year test was like the others. So much was the :ll(Terence In sise and height that it looked like two different plantings. Now I am not advocating no garden nlow, hand rake farming, but only used these tools that I might know absolutely that nothing but the 'mutch was dtMurhed. , I have seen men who ought to know better plowing corn for the third time with as long a plow as they could get hold of, plowing within three Inches of corn while multitudes of fine octm roots hang out in the air, broken in two and then wonder why their corn was so chafTy and the fodder "fired" so bad, saying "I ' worked my corn good three times and haven't over a half crop" when they should have said I raised about half crop in spite of what I did to my corn. While In another State a few years ago I noticed a peculiar state of con dition of the soil. I asked the farmer the cause. His reply was that it had been an awful dry summer and after four cultivations It was so dry that he. his three sons and the hired man had taken the wheels off their two mowing-machines and singled them out and gone over their I io acres- twice in this way dragging each wheel with a horse. You might say this of no use but 'his- corn attested to the fact that he had Increased his corn ten bushels or more per acre. Go under a river bank after mgft water had receded and you will find a crust first forms on muck land whloh soon fills with cracks running in ev ery direction, through these the damp ness of the ground beneath escapes to the air above, keep a lot of this crust tore up a few days and you will have a quagmire under It when all the oth er ground Is thoroughly dried out. Note a corn field after a rain an you will find the same conditions so a smaller scale. Keep your corn land stirred up frequently to sufficient depth to prevent this cruet forming and often enough to keep weeds from getting a start and you have done all that Is necessary to raise a prize crop. Four cultivations with, the same "draw bar pull" on old Dobbin as three under old methods would Increase by many hundreds of bushels the yearly corn crop of old Lawrence. MUTT.
