In Kentucky the law making body is officially known as the General As sembly. So In order to keep the dis tricts nearly equal In population the legislature re-dlstrlcts the state ev ery ten years. We have representa tives from each district and the term Is two years for each representative the salary Is ten dollars per day dur ing the sixty legislative days 'of a biennial session, with an additional fifteen cents for each mile traveled for one rund trip from the member's home to the capital. This also holds true for the 'Senator except his term Is for four years. The regular session begins on the Tuesday after the first Monday In January In the , even-numbered years.' :' i The qualification for a representative Is that no person shall be a represen tative who, at the time of his or her election. Is not a citizen of Kentucky who haa not resided in this state two years next preceding his or her elec tion, who has not attained the age of twenty-four years or has not resided the last year in the country, town or city for which he or she may be chos en. The highest court in Kentucky Is known aa the Court of Appeala which sits at Frankfort. Its seven Judges tire elected for a term of eight year Is five thousand dollars each. The on a district ticket and their salary chief justice Is the one that has been longest In service on the Court of Ap peals bench. Thla court hears cases appealed from circuit courts and Its decision is final on -any matter involv ing state affairs. The clerk of the Court of . Appeals is elected at the same time as the governor and serves for four years. The governor Is elected for four years and is Ineligible for the next term, his salary Is sixty-five hundred vlollars and he has the use of a man sion at Frankfort. In Kentucky the governor has no control over other jitate officers elected with him. The governor must be at least thir ty years of age and have been a citi zen and a resident of Kentucky for at 'east six years next preceding his elec tlon. OPAL FLY BON. Questions.

MA, MATTHEWS ; ; D.D.LL. O. ', . . . .-' ; , CITIZENSHIP The country Is not suffering from bad citizens. No country ever suffer ed from such. Our country Is suffer ing from the bad citizenship of good citizens. Communities, suites, and na- !ons have no better government than the negligent citizen produces. The re sponsibility for bad government rests upon the negligent citizen, the absen tee from the ballot box, and the man who is dodging his civic duty. The business man and the banker U5e every possible means to escape Jury duty. They are traitors to good government. You hear business and professional men say that they are not Interested in politics; that they are not politicians. Then they are unde sirable citizens. They are responsible for all the errors In government and corruption In officer It is Impossible for a taxpayer, a home owner, an hon est man to stay out of politics. If he stays out of politics, he Is a traitor to government, an enemy to his home, and he Is a burden to all the other tax payers. Because of his neglect to per form his duty, he Increases the taxes of all tha people. What Is politics?. It Is the science of government. -The science of good government. Then every man, wo man, and child ought to be forced to study the science of government. And every man ought to be a practical, common sense, persistent, courageous, everlasting politician. When men get so pious, so good, and so busy that they cannot afford to perform their 7 WHY 2 OUT OP 3 MOTOR ACCIDENTS OCCUR UNDER IS MILES AM HOUR. M TAgYnu;'vrrTt'.TE ' PV6 AUTOCA3TCW SrffV CP plain political and civic duties I they become a curse to society, a menace to government, a burden to the tax payer, a blight on citizenship, and a stench In the nostrils of God. The average business man Is a con summate coward, and it is his in famous cowardice that has plunged this country Into innumerable errors. Out of the cowardice of bus iness men we have filled the legisla tures and the Congress of the United States with spineless men; conse quently,, we legislate under the whip lash of a party master or we fall to legislate because , of , timidity and cowardice. The common public la un represented and suffers untold bur dens because of. the bad citizenship of coort citizens. POEM BY UNCLE JOHN of ; WHO WOULDN'T? !
