Gordon S fl.00 PEB IN ADVANCE YEAB JULY 4. 1913 mii t in from the outside world by eternal hills on every side, the capital cf Kentucky is, according to the govern ment thermometer, the hottest place in the tiaie durin? this, the hottest and lonpest continued heated spell iu years. The State Journal says the mercury was 10 one day this week, or several de crees, a half doen or so. higher than more favored Richmond. In fact it was so hot at Frankfort that the rays of the un blazing down on the tin roof of the residence of lr. J. G. South, which Sen ator liradley had given his daughter, set it afire, causing its entire destruction. Hot, however, as it is in the city un der the hills, we know of hundreds of men who would be willing: to suffer its par boiling at Biosphere, if at the same time they could occupy a seal at the pie counter. Strange, isn't it, how men long for the loaves and fishes? liig pay a id little work must be the explanation. LtKK Henry Clay, the writer and some other more or less great men, Thomas Nelson Paue, who has just been ap pointed Ambassador to Italy, was born in Hanover county, Virginia. His fath er's farm and that of ours were less than ten miles apart, but tie being so much older than we, our recollections of him are somewhat indistinct. We have watched his upward literary course, however, with pride and rejoiced when he added additional laurels to his brow with each succeeding volume of mag nificent work. Mr. Page is a man of parts, will prove a diplomat worthy of the best traditions and not only do him self credit, but President Wilson's ad ministration and the country general ! Two more daily papers started out on the ieu)iesiuous sea of journalism in Kentucky this week, one at Hopkins ville, the other at Islington. Like the making of books, there seems to be no end to the starting of newspapers, the desire to run one seeming to spring eter nal in many human breasts. May the fittest survive and the devil take the hindmost. Axothkr battle of Gettysburg was fought Wednesday on the 00th anniver sary of the original scrap. A man who said after the smoke of battle bad died away that he lived in Philadelphia and is the son of a Confederate general, re marked in the presence of a number of veterans that "Lincoln was nothing but a d d negro." No sooner said than knives were drawn and almost quicker than it takes to tell it, seven men fell more or less severely stabbed. Pity, but pity 'tis, 'tis true, the fellow who made the foolish remark escaped unhurt and at last accounts was cogitating inside the walls of a jail on what a fool he had made of himself. In our early youth. spent in Virginia, we were not of those who admired the great emancipator, but the more we have read of him, the brighter his record grows and the more we find in him to admire, and it is idi otic now for any one to try to defame him. Whks President Wilson asked Con gress to investigate the insidious lobby that was getting in its work in Wash ington he could hardly have imagined what a hornet's nest he was poking his stick into. The revelations that are be ing disclosed show a most alarming state of affairs in that it convicts many Con gressman and employes with the efforts of the National Association of Manufac turers to go against the wishes of the people. The story as published in the New York Wold Is almost past belief that men will so far forget their duties in order to gain a little lucre. The au- gean stables are certainly being cleaned out by the democratic administration and the interests made to realize that they no longer direct legislation. Thk Court of Appeals having decided that the directors o the Burley Tobac co Society have been usurping functions belonging only to the stockholders, the former are up in arms and claim that the suit which brought the decision was instigated by the Tobacco Trust, which can now get control of the Society and undo the work of years in the interest of the growers. Many of the stockholders, however, are elated over the decision. claiming that directors have ruled with a high band and dissipated their funds without warrant. There are opposing contentions. The public can draw its own conclusion. Thk Mississippi Supreme Court has decided that a razor is not a deadly weapon in the meaning of the law, but a toilet article. The Kentucky Court of Appeals had better not propound any such questions. Rastus is too handy with the so-called toilet article now, with it under the ban. He would get more perniciously active were ibe ban removed. "WHAT DOToU NEED?
