Editor Henry Watterson never wrote a finer or a stronger editorial in his long career as editor than that one blowing up of the Lusitanla. Children who are allowed to throw bananna and apple peallngs and paper in the yards and on the side walks at home will not care how the business streets look. t, i. . . uememoer rnaay ana Saturday are clean up days, when the battle against dirt and disease will be waged. Do your part so that the Inspector will have nothing to renort to the board of health. NEW CAR. Colonel Watterson speaks of Teddy as being "Jocund; beaming and right- eous", and agrees with the Haltimore Sun that "our leading heroic actor" owes a debt of cratitude to Mr. Ilarnrn f New York, for providing him with the opportunity for returning to the center of the stage. The great "Dixie Highway" is en- grossing the attention of leading citi zens and tne State press at nresent. Here's hoping the entemrise will aterlaliie, as it deserves. And may we not hope that the enthusiasm with this movement will penetrate re mote sections and result In rninv 'Dixie Byways."? At Lexiegton a receiver has been asked for the Hurley Tobacco comnanv. They have had entirely too many tobac- o companies in the Blue grass and they ave had too many selfishly ambitious men at their various heads. While these conditions continue there will never be the necessary unitv amon? the growers. In Washington the situation In view of the loss of American llv hv th. torpedoing of the Lusitania. is consider ed very grave. Secretary Bryan has cabled Ambassador Gerard at Berlin to ask the German government for Its re port of the disaster. The drat formal comment from the White House was in the effect that the "President is very earnestly but very calmly, considering the right course to pursue, knowing that the country wished him to act with deliberation as well as firmness." There has been an unusual attendance at the Panama exposition already, but. of course, the people are as vet coin? from the Pacific alope. They are a proud and enterprising people out there. The limited nnmber n f Kentuckians who have so far attended have, no doubt, seen so many things to look upon and admire that thev did not notice the absence of a building dedicat ed to the use ot Kentuckians. Hut there was no appropriation by the legislature nd, later, when Senator Marshall, of Henderson, organized to raise the necessary amount for a building by popular subscription there was even a feebler response than the legislature made. So, in this free country and freer state the people are doing with out what they seem not to have wanted. PUBLIC SPEAKING. Hon. J, W.

We would say in this connec tion that Mr. Beazley has a brother !r this town in the person of Mr. J. A, Beazley that was also re-elected i trustee of our graded school for the "steenth" time and we are so proud of him we have never given him any opposition. MEMORIAL DAY. This year Memorial day is of greater importance than ever before. It is just fifty years ago that peace was official ly declared between the north and the south, thus giving occasion for the cel ebration of the first Memorial day. Be sides this, Lincoln, the great heroic fig ure during the civil war, was killed by the assassin Booth just fifty years ago, These facts are important in regard to the celebration of Memorial day this year. They make the day all the more notable and will make for even greater interest in it, it that is possible, see ing that the whole countrp gives itself over to the celebration ot that day.
