"County Court Day."
''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
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.

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

telegraph poles were passed early in the

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.

Last year the gross income of the steel
trust was $700,000,000. But the gross

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 !"

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
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.

The Horse in New York.
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
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
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.
