Long live The Madisonian for its fear less position on the whisky and the vote selling proposition. It peals out in no un certain tones when dealing with those twin destroyers of the manhood of the na tion. If every newspaper should nail those principles to its masthead, those monsters could be more effectively combatted. The Madisonian's subscription list should be a comple directory of the sober,' law-abiding citizens of Madison county and all other counties as well. Some day the good peo ple will rise up in their might and say to these demons, "down with your infamous work," and when public opinion rises in its wrath, woe unto the candidate who does not heed the admonition. May The Madisonian live to see its righteous effort crowned with success.

It is with great reluctance, that 1 find it necessary to defend for the second time, in my race for the Demo cratic nomination for Superintendent of Schools, the legality of my certifi cate of eligibility to that office which, has been questioned by one of my op ponents namely. H. H. Brock. 1 re gret that this opponent for whom 1 entertain the kindest feeling and the highest respect, should endeavor to discredit an opponent, who is a candi date for the office whom he well knows to be equally capable, both from the standpoint .of education and expert ence, ana equally quannea leany, avoiding the technicality of a sentence in an ola law, which, in the judgment of the Superintendent of Public In Sufuction Barksdale Ham let t himself, does not render illegal the certificate held by myself. The new law of 1912 covering the eligibility of candidates for this office reads as follows: "There shall be a county superintendent of. common schools in each county of the State who shall be possessed of good moml character and ability to manage the common school interests of the county efficiently. He shall possess a good English education and shall be com petent to rxamine the teachers who shall apply to teach the. common schools in the county. He shall be twenty-four years old at the time of qualifying, a citizen of Kentucky, shall have resided two years next pro ceeding the election in this state and one year in the county for which he is a candidate. No person shall be eligi ble to the office ot county superintend ent unless he hall hold from ihe State Board of Examiners, a State diploma or a State cerlincate wnicn win not expire during his proposed term of office; or a certificate of qualification which shall in all. respects, be the equivalent of a State certificate issued by the State Board of Examiners, on a personal examination held at the State Capitol on the last Friday and Satur day in May and June next preceding the election of County Superintend nts." This act was signed by the Governor on March 18 1912, is the present law governing the qualification of candi dates for the office of superintendent of common schools. I hold a State Certificate issued to ma by the State Board of Examiners, three years ago, which does not expire until 1918, or six months atter the expiration of the term of office, for which 1 am a candidate. The original certificate is in my pos session; there ts a public record or it in the office of the State Superintend ent at Frankfort, which has been certi fied by that office, and heretofore pub lished. 1 desir also, in this cor.nec tion, to quote from a letter dated July 19, 1913, addressed . to myself, and signed by the Superintendent of Public Instructions which fully shows the legality of my certificate, and that he concurs in' my view of the matter. "Any State certificates issued by the State Board of Examiners is legal in any county, as long as the local County Superintendent allows it to remain in force. :;: - : ' For your guidance in the matter of the legal qualifications of a candidate for County Superintendent, 1 quote from the act of 1912: "No person shall be eligible to the office of County Su perintendent, unless he shall hold from the State Board of Examiners, a State certificate, whica will not expire during the proposed term of office, or a certificate of qualification which shall in all respects, be the equivalent of a State certificate issued by the State Board of Examiners, etc." Your certificate does not expire dur ing the proposed term of office and as long as it is adjudged a legal certificate by the County Superintendent of your county, you are legally . qualified to hold the office of County Superin tendent." j , The original of this letter can be seen by anyone desiring to see it. M regret exceedingly that it is neces sary for me to thus defend my right to be a candidate, in doing so I have been careful to say nothing ofFensive about my opponent, wtio as so far forcotten himself as to attempt to dis- i credit one whom he knows if not only I c 1 ' well qualified, and a good Democ tat, but one who shall be pleased to sup port the nominee of the party for this I' office, 'whomsoever It may be. I have been a teacher in this and ad joining counties for approximately twenty years, and believe the bet in terests of the common schools of the counjty are as well known to me as to either of the wo opposing candidates. As to my .moral character,, you are most respectfully referred to my neigh bors, and the patrons of the schools where I have taught. : . Thanking one and all for the gener ous support so kindly given me In my race thus far, 1 now desire to ask you to redouble your energies in the in terest of my candidacy. ' ; Very Respectfully, B.

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.
