The campaign for County offices is now being hotly contest ed, and the questiou naturally arises, "Shall the people rule?" or will the people squander and sacrifice their rights and privile ges upon the altar of Mammon, by placing those in authority who have bribed and corrupted the voters of the county by and through the use of MONEY and WHISKY? This Isthefwestion that the Iaw-aTtoing 7 citizerSs of this County must solveon Aug ust 2. As a candidate for the office of County Clerk, I have not used one penny or a drop of Whisky to influence a single vot er to support me, and I pledge myself to the people of Madison County not to use any Money or Whiskv in my race. If I cannot secure the orhce by fair and the office honorable means, I don't want it. I will never be guilty of the crime of corrupting the ballot and de bauching men for the sake of office. I will greatly appreciate any support accorded me in my race, but above all, I want an untrammeled ballot, an honest election, and a fair count. That is Democracy. That means a goverment of the people, by the people, and for the people. And again I ask: "Shall The People Rule?" or will they turn the offices over to those who corrupt the ballot-box by the use of MONEY and WHISKY? Let the people answer. Respectfully submitted, James B. Walker, For County Clerk. 00 Boy Accidentally Shots Arm Off Frank Ferguson, aged 14, of near Chamber's, met with a pain ful accident Thursday, while out hunting.

I The Kentucky Utilities Com pany Announce Free Elec tric Fan Service to Invalids Free electric fan service for the benefit of the sick is offered to the public this summer by the Kentucky Utilities Company, ac cording to Mr. Geo. Bogard, the Local Manager. The offer the Company makes in effect is that electric fans and, where necessary, the current to operate, will be furnished without cost to persons seriously ill who are unable to pay for the service. The only conditions are that the attending physician must certify to the rea sonable necessity for fan service, and to the patient's inability to afford it. The offer, of course, applies where the sick room is within reach of the Company's lines. "The reason for making condi tions of any kind is for the ob vious purpose of protecting the free electric fan for the use of those who really need it and can not afford it," says Manager Bo gard. "It is a public welfare proposition and is evidence of the general policy of our Company. No hard and fast rules are in forced regarding the free service, our aim being to make it do as much good as possible. During the summer months there are al ways cases where the use of an electric fan greatly improves the condition of the patient, and sometimes represents the narrow margin between life and death. "This offer has been made and received with approval and at once utilized by the physicians in other cities where our Company operates." . 29-2t oo Promoted Mr. Stiver, of this city, the effi cent agent of the Metropolitan Insurance Co., of New York, has been promoted to a district agency and Richmond will now be sepa ratDistrict There are seven other districts; in' this state.
