FARMERS!
Save Manure From
Your Live Stock
It Is aw precious as the golden gruln In your bin. Farmers lu
the old countries recogulzo this, and they not only savo every pound
and apply It In such a nay that losses are reduced to tho minimum,
but I hey gather leaf moulds, sediments and mucks from swamps
which they mix with manure lu order to ready them more valuable.
Manure deteriorates very rapidly unless properly cared for. Hou't
leaie It carelessly lu tho yard, thereby letting dollars get auay from
you, but come In TODAY and get a John Deere "hlp-hlgh" Spreader,
the kind with the beater on the axle, and spread fertility and prosper-

SUNDATS RAIN
Amounted To Almost n Wnler Spout
In This City, Doing Some
Damage.
Tho weather mnn was on tho Job
all right for his predictions as to tho
weather In this vicinity ns far as the
rain was concerned.
Sunday afternoon nbout 430 a heavy
rain and hall storm struck this com
munity, coming from tho southwest,
nnil for n short tlmo tho rain came
down In torrent?, with a mlxturo of
hall nnd wind, turning tho streets Into
mlnlaturo creeks all over the city.
On Hrldgo street the water rushed
down to tho holo under tho C. & 0
wnshlng rock and sand onto tho street
car tracks, nnd a car attempted to go
through It, but Jumped tho track. An
other car went to Its asalstanco nnd
It, too, got oft tho track, compelling tho
company to transfer nround them until
they were replaced on the track.
Tho downspouts on tho now addition
to tho Central Oarage on Market
street, became choked and tho water
backing upon tho almost flat roof,
caved In, damaging two automobiles
slightly.
On West Second street a choked
sower caused water to back up in the
residence of Mr. Pearl Dlythe, tho bar
bcr, doing some dnmage.
A largo barn on tho farm of John
Drnnnon In the Lowlsburg neighbor
hood, was struck by lightning and
burned, together with its contents,
Tho loss Is heavy.
Rain continued to fall at Intervals
almost tho entire night, tho govern
mcnt gauge reporting n totnl rainfall

A largo amount of damage was done
throughout the county by washing of

HfMM 43,
The Mnysvllle market closed on Fri
day, March 24, In a most satisfactory
manner to both buyer and seller, the
prices on all grades being fully as
high as at any time during the season.
The market sold 17,412,200 pounds
for $1,948,543.1!), at an averago of
111.20. Last year's average was $8.21,
this season showing an advance of $3
per hundred.
Tho market for the entire year has
been better supported and held to a
more uniform price day after day than
any year slnco It was opened, there be'
Ing no radical raises or falls.
Tho great number of fnctory buyers
and brokers now located here makes It
so that if ono drops out there Is an
other to take his placo. This fact
makes Maysvillo tho most reliable
dally market of northern Kentucky or
southern Ohio.
The loss of one-third In pounds was
largely made up to the grower In the
advance In price, but fell very hard on
tho warehousemen.
The extreme high price of fertilizer
13 bound to cut the Carolina crop,
Dairying is having its effect In east
ern Kentucky nnd southern Ohio and
tho high prico for hemp will cut the
central Kentucky crop, so It lookB
good for tho tobacco grower of Mnson
and adjoining counties.
My advlco to all Is to grow all that
yon can PROPERLY CARE FOR BUT
NOT ONE POUND MORE, for each
season now clearly demonstrates that
it Is tho careful handler that gets tho
money. As an Illustration, ono grower
on Friday, March 24, sold his crop at
an averago of $24.43.
Hero Is hoping for a 30,000,000 snlo
In Mnysvllle next year and a good
crop. W. MITCHELL, Supervisor.
HUMANE SOCIETY MEETING.
Friday evening thero was a called
meeting ot tho Mason County Humano
Society. Tho problems of tho work
wcro discussed and It was decided
to try to get a trained and offlclcnt
worker to como hero and tako entire
charge of tho humano business. Somo
ono who can glvo his entlro attention
to looking up tho cases of neglect and
cruolty In tho county nnd city. Such
a worker will liavo to bo paid a sal
ary whllo hero. Tho Humano Society
has eight-six names on Its roll and
slnco so many are interested in this
good cause there need bo no trouble
about raising tho salary ot a Humane
Officer. Tho people of the county
should bo as much interested as thoso
In tho city, nnd branch societies should
bo organized In ovory community,

You remember Shakespeare wrote, "The apparel oft proclaims tho man."
You know from experience this Is true. You can't judgo a man when you first meet him by his BRAINS
OR CHARACTER, because you can't size these up nt n glance; but you do unconsciously Judge him by tho
clothes he is wearing.
March 27th to April 8th lias been decreed "DRESS UP" tlmo all over tho country. This tlmo has been
dedicated to new Spring Clothes In recognition of tho new season.
Moro men each year grasp ho significance ot better dressing. Somo through personal experience; somo
through experience ot others. "Hechinger" clothes are nlways "DRESS UP" Clothes because they aro fash
ioned by masters In design. Your tasto In spring clothes may be conservative, or may favor the moro no
ticeable, moro radical models. We will show you both. You aro sure of bcliih' dressed In perfect stylo and
taste when you make your selection from our new spring models. Wo offer yon a 'wide chplcc. Ab to
price you may suit your own inclinations In this matter. Suits $10 to $30. '
