We hope that its patrons will npprovo the changes in form of make-up and tho effort that is nwdo to mako it more metropolitan in appearance, and more complete with liye local news. The people of Stan ford and iho surrounding country aro tho best on earth, and there is no rea son why they should not have the very best paper that can be given them. They can have, if they will help us, not only with their subscriptions and adver tising, but by each reader constituting himself or herself b committee, of one to tell tho editor all tho news he or sho knows. Anything from a dog fight to tho wedding of Sister Ann or he sale of the pet calf can be woven Into a good news item, and wo want you to tell us of tho occurrences of tho day thatcome within your knowledge. Wo 'deeply appreciate the warm hearted, whole-souled welcome which tho good people of Stanford and com munity have given us and ours, and hope to mako the Interior Journal such a good newspaper that it will con tinue to be n welcome visitor to every home. Almost 100 new names l)ave been added to the paper's mailing list al ready this week. No paper in this part of the State, outside of Lexing ton, compares in circulation with the Interior Journal. Neither of the two dailies at Frankfort has as many bona tide subscribers. New subscrib ers are new life blood to a newspaper and the I. J. feels greatly blessed with this happy augury for its future. Governor Willson vetoed the cele brared Louisville Ripper bill, designed ta take the office of citty attorney from the republican incumbent and give it to a democrat. The republicans protested from one end of the State to the other over this "steal." They forgot that ono of the first things tho republics n State administration did when it carr.e into power was to try to oust J. W. Hedden, the democratic State Superin tendent of Printing. It makes a b'g difference whose ox is being gored. Tho Ripper bill passed over the Governor's veto in the'IIouses. but enough demo c 'ats voted with the republicans in the Senate to kill it. The republicans ate thus robbed of much campaign thunder. Of course everyone in Lincoln county is proud that her son will continue to so well represent the Eighth district in the National Congress. Our good old neighbor of Boyle should possess her soul with patience. Her favorite is young, and the day of tho young man is close upon us, The establishment of a five-million-pound tobacco prizing warehouse here, which is now said to be assured, will make Stanford rightfully the center of the tobacco growing interests south of the Kentucky river. Patience, and shuffle the cards; the old town's a coming! Col. Roosevelt has arrived in Khar toum, in southern Egypt, and already the faithful who have not permitted themselves to bo led after the strange gods which Taft, Ballinger& Co., have aet up, are beginning to get ready to hail the great deliverer. Both Houses of the General Assem bly passed over the Executive veto tho Holland bill, which was drawn to pre. vent the establishment of a large col ored school near Shelbyville.

Wants "V's" Off Court-house. Preaciiersville Reporter Says They Arc Out of Date-Live News. Preaciiersville, Ky. Wo aro ono of Lincoln county's most humble citizens, yet we cannot refrain from making one suggestion -that those cranky Colonial stylo of letter "V's" on tho front of of our new court-house bo changed so as to look as modern as the rest of this magnificent structure. Do we have, n second? Every true citizen cannot look at the new court-house, now so near completion, but with n feeling of admiration. From log cabin to plendid mansion tnero Is none but who should feel an interest, n part ownership, as it were, in this terrple whero sits the blind Goddess of Jus tice. A young gent from Crab Orchard will Boon claim one of our prettiest girls. Wo have very straight informa tion. Farmers ore well along with their work. More tobacco this year than last.

His father kill ed 18 deer and many wild turkeys in the knobs a few miles south of Crab Orchard. A bent hickory cane has tl date of 1855 and is a nice piece of carv ing and never painted or varnished, shows a wonderful polish.

Even their teachers and closest friends are completely puzzled. This no doubt af fords these demure young ladies lots of fun. Then, the twin sons are as much alike each other in feature, disposition and taste as the girls. Their names are Henry and Henley, the latter now recovering from an accidental gun-shot wound, which camo very near termina. ting fatally.

The fanner of today buys a much larger proportion of the food that goes on the table than he did ten years ago. It s a good thing that this is so because lie his a great variety to select from. He should, however, use great care in selecting for the best results in health ami strength.
