FORGETTING THE OTHER SIDE There are r.iany things that would improve conditions in this town and the siiirouniliii(jr. territory, hut the one defect which im ptWBtl itself nus! forcibly upon our mind nt this time is the lacl: of unaiiiinity and cohesiveness in social affairs. With each indivd-uil the town or community in which he HvM is lkc a piece of rope or twine. It has two eijtls and each should be in harmony and work smoothly with the other The one end is where w begin Mf life in the community, and the other is when death or removal breaks the connection. We devote our time, our thoughts, anil our energies to the be ginning and to each successive step as we progress through life. The end is hut a phuntoii of the future and we give it but little need. And herein Wt err. for it is not wise to forget the other end. We need an awak.ning and a more cohesive spirit in the social life of this town and )l this countryside. We need a greater spirit of fraternity in our associations one with another. A spirit of broth erhood ami sisterhood should hind us closer together for the com mon weal of all. In the pleasures and the excitements of today we forget that there is a tomorrow foi which we must provide, nd in this omission vc too frequently are storing up isolation and lonesomeness for the later years of life. As we begin, so do we invariably end. If we cultivate a spirit of aloofness and cxelush eness in the days of our youth, then we must expect that in the ripeness of old age others will maintain the barrier that separates us to the end. The joys ;unl pleasures of youth are easy to acipiire. hut as linn silvers our locks they are more difficult to obtain. The person who adheres to an exclusive clique today may find that tomorrow the intergral parts have drifted away mid that othei doors are closed. And it, is then that the grayness of the winter of life is brought home to the one who lives in the beginning and for gets the other end. We all have our good qualities and our faults, some more pro nOUneed than others. None of us arc ever perfect, for we arc but human and arc of the same clay Let us then remember that life of tomorrow will be just as we shape our beginning today. Let us bear in mind that the end of the string may be sharp and strong and virile, or that it may be old ami worn and frax.h-d. , Life, like the string, has a beginning and an end. and the end must inevitably pay for the omissions of the beginning. Those who cultivate friendship in the summer of youth will find that in the decline of life others will cleave to them, and that the mellowness of old age will be filled with joy instead of being sad dened by sorrows and regrets. In our intercourse one with another, friends, let us remember that each day we a.re approaching the other end of life, and that the end will be in accordance with the precepts and policies id' the be ginning. Let us make of this a community of friends, and not merely of acquaintances. Let us transform the gray winter of life into a perpetual sun shine of summer. Let us begin today. 017R WOMEN A TOAST NKW TOR LETTER (From Our Regular Correspondent) k Mstal Trlnmph The decision of p Secretary Danlele to provide the new ly authorized battleship with batteries of eight 18-Inch guns la a dlatlnct triumph for the naval officers who have long urged the adoption of high er calibre gnns for the main batteries and hitherto have been unucressfil only becauae, aa some of them ex press It, "Secretary Daniels seemed to think that big guna are a greater menace to peace than little onea. Pos sibly becauae they make more noise.'' With President Wilson's recent con veralon to preparedness, however, and with the Democratic majority In the Senate favoring ships which will prove the equal of those of any foreign navy the naval eperts have won out. There Is now every proapect that In a few years this country will have four bat tleships ns powerful as any afloat. How, all together, in one great volume of sincerity: Here's to woman our women the women of our town and our Countryside ! When God Created the earth He also created man. and the birds, and the beasts, and the fishes, and the reptiles, and all of the other creatures and things of the earth. Hut with all of the myriads of His creation there was one thing lacking The essence the goodness, the purity of life was absent. He created woman. And woman our women are His most priceless gift to this earth. Her nobility and purity arc the brightest spot of existence The sunshine of her soul floods the life of man with a radiance on the darkest day Without her there would be no human life. lb-re to woman to OUS women the one joy in the life of man 1 Speak gently, talk to a purpose, and you v'i" bs heard, heeded and remembered.

Colonel Nets Mme-I.lght-It would be no more possible to keep Col Roosevelt out of the llme-llght than to measure the globe with a foot-rule. Having dispatched a bunch of en thusiastic women suffragists to Colo rado to tell the convention which Is to meet there that they should show their gratitude by voting for Gov. Hughes, the Colonel went out to Coney Island and had a whole lot of fun with a wild west Bhow. The Colonel found that Charley lrwin everybody knows Charley out west and Ed l.inilsey had had a scrap ami It was In the air that they were going to fight it out to a finish, after the police '.vent to bed. The Colonel sent for the two men, shot his lower jaw, drew his twenty-sis taatS on tlicm and told them with characteristic emphasis that they had got to make up if they jpeeted to have anything more to do with him. The men grinned at each other sheepishly and shook hands. Tin- Colonel slapped them both on the back, shook hands all round, and to day the metropolitan press, without regard to party, is touting the Colonel for the Coney Island Noliel peine prize.

The trouble is he can't figure out who to send it to." Old Hughe I'tisatlsfHetory Oovernor Hughes is proving highly unsatisfac tory to the Democrats, on his western tour. Charley Murphy, head of Tam many Hall, has given an interview denouncing Mr. Hughes as lacking constructive ability and Secretary Mc Adoo accuses the Republican candi date of the crime of "pettifogging." For some strange reason the Republi can managers accept tbeae criticisms of their hero with extraordinary com placency. They maintain, In fact, that the sudden decision of 1'resident Wil son, after having announced that he would not take the stump, to make a western tour and go over the same ground as Mr. Hughes Is evidence that the Republican candidate has put the Democratic nominee very much on the defensive. The Republicans insist that Mr. Wilson received thousannds of votes from people who believed him to be a peculiarly high-minded man and who had accepted his repeated commendation of civil service reform as sincere and that these are bound to be alienated by the evidence Mr Hughes la presenting of flagrant viola tiona, by Mr. Wilson personal direc tion, of both the spirit and the letter of civil service reform IN 1916 s boys pig club was introduced Into Kentucky. Thlr- teen counties were organized unuer in loaueisiup 01 men county agents and 649 boys became, members. Local shows were held and ; the winning boy from each county re ceived a free trip to the Farmer Boys' Encampment at the State Fair. Six teen boys were given this trip and j eighteen pigs were exhibited. This was the first state pig Hub show in Kentucky. Although the exhibit was small, the interest was ao great and the showing so good that the pig club j baa. become one of the most popular and beneficial boys' clubs in Farm Demonstration Work. From this small beginning the boys' pig club has spread to 40 counties with a membership of 1,250 boys In a single year. Rankers, business men and farmers have co-operated to the ex- tent of placing over $5,000.00 worth of pure bred hogs in the hands of these boys. The state agent and county agents ; co-operated In organizing, holding! meetings, securing registered pigs, visiting members, and Instructing them along the proper lines of animal! husbandry. The 1916 pig club started May 15th. Each boy had a gilt between two and ! four months of age, and most of them secured registered pigs. Record books i Vcre furnished the boys unci the I pigs were weighed and ear tagged by the county agent at the beginning of the contest. Local Shows First. It ta contemplated that a local show i be held in each of the counties organ-' Ued. at which numerous prizes will be given. The first prize in each county will be a free trip to the Farmer Boys' j Encampment, given by the State Fair and College of Agriculture, to the boy making the best showing as follows: (a) Best hug- with respect to pur pose for which It was raised.. 40 (b) Greatest dally gains 16 (c) Cheapest cost of production... 25 (d) Best kept record book 20 100 Not only will the winning boy be given a free trip to the'falr, but ne gotiations are now under way whereby the best two pigs from each county will be sent to the fair free. Already one of the largest railroads In Ken tucky has granted free transportation to and from the fair for the best two pigs in counties having pig clubs aloag Its lines. Free Entrance Fee. The Kentucky State Fair has realized the educational value of an exhibit from these boys and to that end have opened their doors wide, allow ing each pig club exhibitor free en trance, free pens and a distinct aud separate department, at the same time giving them the privilege to exhibit in the breeders classes. Over $150.00 in prizes has been given by record associations, business men and farmers. Last year one boy defeated a ring of twenty-four choice pigs. The results of the pig club have been widespiad; hundreds of farmers have changed their feeding methods; pure bred hogs have been taken Into counties where they were not known; community breeding has resulted In six or seven counties; boys are becom ing interested in the farm; greater interest is being centered on the swine Industry of Kentucky and this coming September 11 to 16, 1916, the greatest hog show In the history of the Kentucky State Fair is predicted ed.
