''Man' never is, but always to be. blessed." The same is largely true of a municipality. Some of the civic or ganizations in Lexington are protesting against County Court day." On th contrary the Beosters' Club at Paducah is trying to work up a segtiment for a bigger ''County Court day " Now "Couniy Court day" of itself is a very ordinary affair whereon and wherein , the County Judge hears mo tions and petitions of various kind, appoints guardians and road overseers find transacts a variety of business in cident to local government and legal procedure. Tbe number of persons in terested in an ordinary court cession of the sort is small, but in Lexington and in many of the smaller towns in Ken tucky "County Court day" is a sort of a general holiday in which the residents of tbe rural districts flock to town to swap horses, to buy or sell produce, to lay in supplies, to exhibit their live slock, to meet the candidates, to mingle with their friends, to eat a town dinner, and, mayhap, to "lake a cup of kind ness" if it comes handy. There are some cities and towns where "County Court day" does not arise to the dimensions of a gala event In Paducab, for iostance, no one out side of the corporation goes to county court unless he happens to have busi ness with that tribunal. "County Court day" does not create a ripple and there are few who know or care of its coming or its going. There are other county towns near Paducah, where, as in Lexington, "County Court day" is a lime-honored institution which brings visitors from far and near, which fairly depopulates the rural districts for the lime being and which temporarily transforms a sleepy village into a bust ling and seething mart. . Some of the aesthetic citizens of Lex ington do not like "County Court day" because of its much noise and manifold distractions. Also il litters up the streets and the clearing of the wreckage it leaves behind is a task of no small proportions. The boosters in Paducah, however, look at the question in a dif ferent light. "County Court day" makes business for the merchants and this, to their commercial vision, covers a multitude of faults. They are will ing to hire extra policemen and street cleaners if they can induce the honest farmer to come to town and spend his money and they don't care if he brings his ox, his horse, his prize pig, his bull yearling or his "houn' dawg," along with Betsy and the babies and the hired man. Corporations in the collective are a good deal like human beings in the first person singular. Whether "County Court day" is a relic or barbarism or an honorable and desirable institution de pends largely on the point of view. Courier Journal. Laster Food 5ale.

J 8 N Lifes Journey. When we start out on a vacation trip we feel assured that there will be a home coming. " Often we buy a return ticket so certain is our expectancy of getting back-home again. But .".. vojareof life there is no return trip. In infancy we start on the voyage which is continous. Truly there is a break in the journey at the end of the cars as it were, and then we continue to proceed oa our great journey. In youth we look forward impatiently to the time when manhood shalLbe reached and freedom from restraint. The time passes all too slowly, the months seem like years. We fear we shall not reach the distant harbor soon enough. But when age creeps upon us we would fain purchase a return ticket to carry us back again to the happy days of childhood when life seemed like one long holiday When we lake a short traveling trip our train is slow, stopping at all stations but when we cross the continent we take a fast train. In the voyage of life the train seems to go faster and fasterand faster, the farther we proceed, until during the latter year the stations fly by as swiftly as telegraph poles were passed early in the trip. Probably the centuries of the eternal life will pass by as quickly as the years pass during the latter part of the earth ly journey Ex. Gov. McCreary Will Announce The following press dispatch was sent from Frankfort Saturday: That Gov. McCreary is preparing to announce next week his candidacy for the Senate in August primary was con cluded today by following the statement of Representative Elwood Hamilton, of this county, who was called (into confer ence with the Governor. During the conference Gov. McCreary told him that he had received pledges of support from Rufus Vansant, of Ash land, chairman of the Democratic 8tale Central and Executive Committees; also from Judge Allie W. Young, of Mt. Ster ling; W. F. Elair and Senator Thomas Coomb, of Lexington; Congressman Campbell Cantrill, of Georgetown, ana many others. It was reported that Gov. McCreary had offered the management of his cam paign to Representative Hamilton, but Hamilton denied the report. Handed Hot Ona They are telling a- good story on one of Gov. McCreary's recent appointees to the office of county judge. The new official, according to the tale of his friends, went to the court-house and presented himself before the circuit clerk. After proudly flashing his com mission from the governor, the new ap pointee said; "Well, here's my com mission, and I am ready to be sworn in and to qualify as county judge." He was taken off his feet when the clerk, after winking at the others, sharply re torted: "I can swear you in, but. all h 1 couldn't qualify you I" The Hen Business. Jnst tbe ben part of the farm buiness is. a b'gger thing than tbe steel trust. Last year the gross income of the steel trust was $700,000,000. But the gross income of farmers last year from poul try and eggs was $730, 000,000 535, 000, 000 for eggs alone. Farm and Fireside. It is an acknowledged fact, too that by far the largest part of the work in raising and marketing the products of the poultry yard is done by the farm ers' wives Editor. 5ure "Some" Democrat There are already a dozen or so can didates for the democratic nomination for jailer of Mercer county with some precincts yet to hear from, says the Lou isville Times. Enoch Burton, ona of tbe aspirants, is injecting some gayety into the contest along original lines. On his campaign cards, which show him in the art of felling a tree, Mr. Burton has had printed the following lines: "I am a Democrat bred ' And a Democrat born, And when I am dead There'll be a Democrat gone !" 'Mr. Bob" will be at the Opera House, this city. Dates given later. tf SIlcDcujsiini Dix River Power Plant Assured. O. P. Kennedy announces that the Dix River Power Plant Co. has been capitalized in New York at $1,000,000. Tbe proposition to erect a monster dam across Dix river eight miles northeast of Danville has boen under way for sev eral months. A scientific test of the daily power of the water has been made and has proven satisfactory to the pro motors. Mr. Kennedy owns the land upon which the dam is to be erected. Options have already been secured on all prop erty which would be affected by the back water. The dam wilt cost $1,400,- 000. The plant now seems to be a cer tainty, and in the event of its erection power will be furnished for the electric light plants in Lexington, Nicholasville, Danville, Lancaster, Richmond and Harrodsburg, with tbe possibility of a be'work of interurbans south of tbe Kentucky river. Announces For Chief of Police. Elsewhere in the Climax appears the announcement of Mr. Dave Powers for chief of police of the City of Richmond, subject to the action of the Democratic party. Mr. Powers is loo well and fa vorably known to the renders to this paper to need an introduction at our hands. He has served on the police force of this city for a number of years and is fully acquainted with all the duties of the office. He has always affiliated with the Democratic party and has been one of its most faithful workers, and his numerous friends will be pleased to learn of his cacdidacy. If elected to the office, Mr. Powers pledges to discharge the duties involved without foar or favor, and solicits the support and influence of every Demo crat in the city. Novel Invitation. A man who had been twice married and who was just arranging to take his third, wife, herself a two-times widow, over in Pawhuska, Okia , last week in sending out the invitations wrote on the bottom of them as follows: "You had better come; this is to be no amateur performance." Pure 5hoe Law. Examinations show that in Dearly every manufactured shoe there is more or less paper and other materials than leather in the make-up. This is espec ially the case in the cheaper grades, and. ai usual, those who can least afford it get the worst of it. They buy shoes which neither wear nor keep out the water, and colds and pneumonia are added in the money loss of tbe purchas ers.' To remedy this evil, tbe people of Louisiana agitated the question of a law to rid the State of the sale of such shoes and it was finally passed, providing for "pure shoes." That is to say that no shoes could be sold in the Stale, under a heavy penalty, which were not entirely of leather, unless the fact that other materials are used and an analysis is stamped on the sole. At first the idea of a pure shoe law was ridiculed by the press, but Louisiana's experience has proved beneficial, and other States are thinking of adopting such a law, which seems necessary to put the swindling shoe manufacture s out of business.

Visitors at the recent automobile show in New York City did not, of course, take it upon themselves to head searching parties for horses, nor were any of them heard to exclaim, "My kingdom for a horse." but had these ex '.reme measures been adopted, it i very doubtful if a car-load of equines could have been found in any one day of the convention on any single block near the Garden. Some rather astoudinng fig ures are sent out of New York and Lon don concerning the passing of the horse. In fact, in these two cities he seems al most to have passed; and what is hap pening in them, or has happened, in a small way is going on in the smaller places. Records in New York show that near ly ten thousand motor trucks and deliv ery wagons are in use daily and tbe li cense office shows that this number gains in larder propo tions each day. One of these trucks does the work of three horse-drawn wagons, as has been proven. Within the last year tbe taxi cab has practically displaced the old fashioned cab in most all cities and towns, but the inroads the motor has made into heavier kind of work has not been so noticeable uniil the last year or two. London has about ten thousand motor cabs in operation and so complete has been the installation of this set vice that a movement has actually been started to induce the British Museum to buy a hansom" and store it away before that type of vehicle becomes obsolete. Now the Public Service Commission of New York has Anally voted to withdraw its last remaining horse street cars, which were used on one or two side streets for years after the horse car had faded from all other parts of the hemisphere. "Old Dobbin" seems passing from bondage and abuse and since he has been man's best friend, there is justifi cation for sentiment that wails his being supplanted by a mechanical substitute, though the machine serves man's needs best. Burley Society Sued For Al leged Back Taxes The Burley Tobaccd Society, which was merged into the Burley Tobacco Co. two years ago, was sued in the Fayette elte circuit court for alleged back taxes for four years on property valued at $3,- 730,000 by Lewis Apperson, of Mt.

Drug Staeee Li dDiP i DEATHS. Mrs. Lizxie Shidell Park, wife of Phas. Park, died at her home in Kansas City, Mo., on January 21, 1913. She is sur vived by her husband and three chil dren Claude, Fannon and Margarite. Mrs. Ella Parke died at the horn of her sister. Mrs. Albert Dozier, near this city, on Jack's Creek pike, Sunday af ternoon. Her death was a great shock to her family and friends, but did not come as a surprise. She had been ill for many months previous to her death and it was known that she could not re cover. She was 32 years of age and was born and raised in this county. She was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Mark Ford and was married to Horace Parke in 1S96, and to them were born two chil dren, Birlley Parke, of this county, and Miss Viola Parke, of Lexington. Uet remains were interred in the Richmond Cemetery Monday afternoon. Mrs. Maggie C. Ferguson, widow of the late Robert M. Ferguson and a sis ter of Mr. Charles E. Clay, of this coun ty, died on Thursday afternoon, January 16, at St. Joseph Hospital, Lexington, of heart failure. She had undergone an operation just a week before and was improving so rapidly that all thought of danger had disappeared, eonequent ly the shock to the family was very great. The funeral was held on Tuesday af ternoon, January 22 and interment was in the Lexington cemetery. Mr. C. E Clay and wife, Rev. S. O. Clay, of An dersoa. Mo , and Rev. B. F. Clay, of Homedale, Idaho, were present. It was impossible, however, for the remaining bsother, H. C. Clay, of Caldwell, Idaho, to be present. At almost the exact hour that the fu neral of Mrs. Ferguson was bing held, the only living sister, Mrs. Annie Pierce, of Denton, Texas, passed away. Tbe telegram reached the three brothers in Lexington shortly after their return from the cemetery. Both of these sisters were members of the Christian Church and were widely known for their lovely characters, their simplicity of nalure, and the sympathy of friends and relatives was quickly ten dered the family in theirdouble bereave ment.
