Mayor Woodward has declared that he doesn't believe it one of the functions of municipal gov ernment to tell women how to dress and that as long as there is no absolute in decency, be proposes to leave it to the women themselves as to how their skirts shall be slashed and how thin the mate rial shall be. "If a woman wants to wear a slashed gown, it may be foolish on ber part, but if she can stand it I can." the mayor is quoted as saying, "and I don't think it is any business of tbe police to interfere." Since the slit skirt style came in, many rather daring costumes have been seen on Peachtree and Whitehall streets, in that city, but tbey have caused neither riots nor in sults to the wearers. Atlantians are more or less accustomed to spectacular dressing, and if the Venus de Milo her self were to come to life in a modern skirt and slash it to her knees, it is very doubtful if Atlanta would make as much fuss as Richmond did over Miss Cutis Rosebud, or whatever her name was. Near Ashland, Lydia Bailey.ag ed sis, was shot to death by her sister, only seven years older, with a gun which she did not know was loaded. But the question arises, what right has a thirteen-year-old child to monkey with a gun loaded or unloaded? Tbe trouble is, p0 pie are too careless about leaving weap ons around and in many cases have more of their means invested in guns than tbey should have. In some portions of the mountains we are informed that there are men whose investments in shooting irons" far exceed that of their household goods and kitchen furniture And we might add that right here in this glorious blue-grass section tbe gar den spot of the world there are many people whose homes much more resem ble an arsenal than they do the abiding place of peaceablo, good citizens. Ur in Ohio tbe father of a young bride has deposited a bond forfeitable to her father-in-law if she doesn't carry out ber wedding agreement in good faith The groom's father has deposited a sim ilar bond which be will forfeit to the bride's father if the young man dances with any woman except his wife; loafs, drinks, trembles or plays pool. Tbe chances seem to favor a close watch over the doings of the young folks. Each father evidently has faith in his child, else he wouldn't risk the 1700. Whether the bonds given by the fathers will make the bride and groom behave is question. Young people are independ ent sometimes and might resent having somebody stand sponsor for them. If both of them were to kick over the trac es the bonds would be exchanged and neither father would be out or in 1700. The Climax is proud of the dignified. clean campaign its former editor, Mr. A. I). Miller, is making for Representa tive. But it is just what the paper might have and did expect of the splendid gen tleman. Ilis opponents have been treat ed with tbe utmost courtesy and eonsid- e rat ion and we do not believe he has by word or deed taken advantage of them That he has made many friends by bis good conduct, there can be no doubt, and at the wind-up of the campaign which will come Saturday, whether he is tbe victor or of the vanquished, be will have the satisfaction of knowing that he is much closer to the people of the county than when he announced for the office he seeks and that be has made a manly race, giving to the gentle men who oppose bim the very best that is in bim. Boston's maidens are to use whistles to attract attention no, not quite as bad as you think. It is to attract the attention of the cops to the "mashers who abound on the street corners. How ever, the samples of the Boston women that we have seen could attract a great deal more attention were they supplied with bells or whistles, or something else to make a noise with. Certainly their personal charms would not attract very much. CoMMEXTisa on the claim that Secre tary of State Bryan does not make enough out of bis office to live on, Florida exchange suggests that after Congress is over tbe capitol be convert ed into a moving picture concern and the proceeds divided between tbe mem bersofthe cabinet. This will be all right with the Commoner if be were given tbe lion's share. A Richmond, Va., photographer, who was right there on the scene and ought to know, says that Flossie Bios aom. the young woman who was fined tt5 for appearing on the street in a slit skirt, made quite a show and attracted almost as much attention as a circus pa rade. The pictures be took of her went like "not cakes."

The fact that the Japanese minister received such an ovation on his arrival at the Mexican capital shows conclusive ly that tbe little Jap has more than the ordinary commercial interest in the Mexican republic. A Pittsbcm, Pa., arbiter of fashion is authority for tbe statement that men will soon be wearing slit trousers.

To The Democratic Voters Of Madison County. Richmond, Ky., July 28, 1813. In my candidacy for the nomination for county court clerk, I have tried as best I could to see every Democratic voter in Madison county. My failure to see all is due to the fact that my duties in tbe office have been unusually con tin ing tnis spnng ana summer, The new law with reference to tax receipts has required the county clerk to make out for every tax payer a receipt and a'dup licate receipt for every tax bill paid. This has kept me and my entire office force steadily at work for a period of six weeks, thus making it impossible forme to canvass during that time. However, it is well known that I am a candidate for a second term and am ask ing an endorsement. So far as I have been able to learn, it is admitted by everyone that I have made a painstak ing, faithful and efficient officer, and that the business of this office has been handled in a manner highly satisfactory to the people, t invite public inspec tion of the records of my office, and I feel that my familiarity with titles, rec ords, etc., peculiarly tit me for even bet ter service for the next four years. In the office of county court clerk not single instance can be cited from the be ginning of the county's history down to the present time, where any man hold ing this office has been refused a second term. For more than one hundred years the people have recognised efficiency in this office and have rewarded the same by endorsement and re-election. If there is no reason to deny me what others have bad, viz: an endorsement, vote for me, and I shall appreciate it very high ly and will continue to attend to the people's business in the same efficient manner as I have in the past. During tbe past three and a half years my office has remained open every hour in the day from seven o'clock in the morning until five and six o'clock in the afternoon, and people who have business in my office have found me and my dep uties always on hind, ready and willing to wait on tbe public and assist them in every way possible. I am, and have been, an active Demo crat ever since I became a voter, and have contributed to the success of my party in every battle that has been wag ed against the Republicans. If service to the Democratic party is worthy of consideration, I feel sure that those who know will admit that I have as much to my credit along that line as any Demo crat in Madison county. In making this final appeal, I ask tbe vote and influence of every Democrat in Madison county. Kespectrully, B, a Tebktll. 87-lt Fresh Cakes received daily; Marble Yellow, and White.

I was born in this county 58 years ago on a arm and lived there until coming to Richmond six years ago. Came from one of the oldest and strongest demo cratic families in the county, having vo ted the democratic ticket myself 38 yrs. and voted no other way. You may know I am a candidate for jailer. Just want it one term and promise not to ask for it again II given to me. 1 am tbe only one of tbe family has ever asked for office and I myself do not want It if I have to get it in an nnfair way. 1 am for an honest and fair election. I have used no whisky or money and will not use any, All I ask is a fair election and if elected I promise to fill the office with credit to myself and to the county. I am very sorry indeed that I have been unable to see each and every voter as 1 wanted to but owing to tbe loss of my horses from the new disease which has been in Rich mond, I was knocked out for six or sev en weeks and quarantined in. Howev- er, I am grateful that it wasn t worst, and I was soon able to be out again mix ing with the voters all over tbe county. I ask each and every voter to think be fore going to tbe polls Saturday, that I am tbe oldest man on the tioket and never had a dollar but what I worked for honest and honorably, and that I need the office. Thanking you and all for your earnest support and whether elected or defeated, 1 shall be your friend, just as I am today.

The Aid Society of the Kirksville Christian church spent a full day with Mrs: Reuben Baker last week and the members bad a splendid time. Plans were discussed for raising money and work generally and this was followed by the spirited auctioning of a quilt that had been made by members of the society. At the noon hour a toothsome meal was enjoyed, of which all partook rreeiy. & Am 5till in the Race and Will Be, Some one has industriously circulated the report that I have withdrawn from the race for the Democratic nomination for Jailer of Madison county. This is a prevarication out of whole cloth and is being circulated to injure me in my race. I am in the fight to the finish and have every reason to believe that I will win. I ask my friends and Democrats gener ally to pay no attention to such silly re ports but go on in the good work of talking and working for me. CLTDB AATBUKt, 87 It Candidate for Jailer.

In olden times those males who would reach their ma jority by or before the regular Novem ber election were privileged to vote in the primary previous but not so under the new election law. You must be twenty-one on or before August 2 to vote Saturday. And too you must vote with the party that you have heretofore affiliated with. In other words, a voter who cast his ballot for the Republican or Progressive party in November last and has heretofore done so can not vote tne Democratic ticket under tbe prom ise to support the nominee. It he has decided to change his party affiliation he must wait until the November elec tion to do so. . ' Buying Blackberries.

I want to be given the opportunity of making a record. Will you assist me? 84 5t Elmer Deatherage. The Agony. Will 5on Be Over. Only a few more days and the agony will be over. We wont be wondering who will win this and that race, but will be figuring how such and such a man beat the bunch he did. Next Saturday, and then we'll know. The candidates are still acting well and there is the best of feeling among them. That nothing will be said or done at this late hour to cause unpleasantness, let us all join in hoping. The reason the campaign has been such a harmonious one is that tbe candidates are all high-class gentlemen, who do not stoop to dirt-throwing, but who attend to their own races and let tbe other fellows take care of theirs. In our recollection, we do not recall a bet ter humored lot than, nor a higher class of gentlemen seeking to serve their peo ple in the capacity of county officers. We are sorry indeed that they can't all be elected. Damage aggregating nearly $10,000 was done by a fire at Adairvule.
