Flossie Buoesox. or whatever her
name is, who startled the native of
Richmond, Va., with a skirt slit not
wisely but loo well, can go to Atlanta,
Ua., If she so desires and can wear ber
modern apparel and show her shapely
self off all she wants. 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.

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.

To The Voters of Madison Co.
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. Again asking
the true and honest support of alL While
I am very grate foU 1 remain.
Yours Very Truly,
Pleasant Occasion.
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

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.

Unless you are twenty-one years old
you can not legally participate in the
primary of Saturday. 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. .

The Proper Action.
The good people of McCreary precinct
have taken proper action, in their warn
ing to those who would use unfair tao
tics in this campaign. They have form
ed a vigilance committee and decreed to
enforce tbe law and prosecute to tne
limit any candidate or voter who will
fully or otherwise violates tbe election
laws by buying or selling votes. - They
are to be congratulated on their stand
for law, order and decency. Every pre
cinct in the county should follow this
example and thus forever put an end to
one of the most infamous customs of
this State.
James B. Walker, candidate for coun
ty clerk, is one candidate who has made
a straight out-and-out fight for a fair
election. He has not used one penny or
any liquor to influence votes, - and will
not. Tbe people of Madison county
should put their sump of approval upon
bis actions by electing bim as county
clerk. It is a duly they owe themselves

work for a living will gainsay, and those
ot us who put in 12 to 15 hours per day
are willing to swear. In fact some of us
are willing to swear at the hot weather,
so unbearably hot it is.

no record in that line to refer to. I want

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.
