GOOD CIRCUS. About twenty-five people from here "took In" the Robinson circus at Rich mond last Tuesday. Relieve me, It was some circus and 25 of the funniest cbwns' Vou ever see'd". STATE FAIR BEGINS MONDAY The thirteenth exhibition of the Kentucky State Fair will begin in Louisville next Monday and continue for six days. Every body In the state should attend this fair at least one day. "GOODY-GOOD" The Interior Journal says; "I'rohibi lion won at Montreal, Quebec. It wasn't the state-wide sort we heard of prior to August 7th. but a fleet-footed thoroughbred which had been given that name." The dam of Prohibition, was Goody Good. Do you tumble; TRY A FORD RUNABOUT The Harrodsburg Herald says: "There is still an untried field for enterprise. No automobile manufact urer makes anything to take the place of the "hug-me-tight" buggy of the good old days of long ago. No steering device will ever succeed the horse that was trained to k4p the road with the lines tied around the whip." ANOTHER DISCONTINUED I'ostmaster Brown has received of ficial notice that the post ofllce at Marksbury will be discontinued In s few weeks.

HELP US. Never find fault because u newspaper fails to give every scrap of news so long as you take no pains to give the editor Information. The average edit or isn't a medium or mind reader, but he gets tne news the same way that a milkmangets his milk by pump ing. This is true especially of that clasi of Items as personals. Rightly they are not "pufTery", but simply personal mention for the information of local readers and those having friends visiting them should always let the local editor know it, and he will always be glad to give it the proper notice, So if you have a bit of news worth printing put It in the way of our pencil pusher. . HAY PITCHER. How Owsley Stanley had time to studv law and run for Congress will al ways remain a mystery. Already 3GS farmers of Doyle county have come forward with the statement that the future governor "pitched hay for me every summer and I never had a better hand." Kentucky s other great statesman. was known as a "railsplit'er". Owsley seems destined to go down in the an nuals of history as a "hay pitcher". Truly we have reached ths'lfe when posterity and social rank help only the mediocre, -genius needs no such stilts. It was a long way from "rail splitter" to President und a long way from "hay pitcher" to Governor. We know Abraham split rails, because we have seen them. Look out for a whisk of hay in future museums. THIS IS A FACT. An example of how badly a purchaser wants his new automobile says the Dan ville Messenger is shown by the action of our friend, Clay Sutton, of Garrard county. The ugent who took Suttons order also koU two other cars at the game time, and all were tu bu delivered together. However, he got n tip that the ugent was Iwaded for Lancaster with only one car. Residing on the Lcxieglon road, over which it was to arrive, he took his oition on the front fence at his hwme, and, with check in hand, wutchad for the coming car. When it hove In bight, Mr. Sutton run into the road and "held up" the agent.

Reser ved seats, 35 cents; Admission, 25 cents; All school children 10 cents. NO GOVERNMENT BUILDING FOR SHELBYVILLE. "If they can't get pudding, they wont have pie"-Is very applicable in the case of the new Government build ing for Shelbyville, her citizens refus ing to accept a brick building and in sist on one of stone. The result being they wont get elther.atleast very soon, according to recent dispatches from Washington. Lancaster would like to have a stone building, but she will ac cept one of brick. Come on. Uncle Sam, we are not hard to please. SPEED LIMIT LAW TO BE ENFORCED. The city council at its meeting last Monday night instructed Chief of Police Orville Ruck, to enforce the law re garding fast driving of automobiles and motorcycles in the city. This law has been disregarded by so many, that a few fines will teach the offenders a lesson. Several near accidents have occurred recently and if a stop is not put to It at once, it is only a question of time until some one Is seriously hurt Another law is being openly violated every day when parents permit their children to drive their cais. This can only be permitted whilo the parent o parents are in the car at the time. VOTE FOR TOM BALLARD. For Sheriff To the voters of Garrard County:- It is generally known that the late Curt A. Robinson was elected sheriff of Garrard county by one of the largest majorities ever given uny man, und that George T. Rullurd Jr., was his chief deputy, George T. Rallard Sr., his father, being a partner with Mr. Robinson in the emoluments or fees of the office. If Mr. Rallard is elected for the two years, yet remaining of the term, he is pledged, and Justly so, to give the widow of Mr. RoNfcsm half the profits or fees of the office, which as certainly belong to her us any pro perty he left her. The truth Is, an of fice is a most sacred property right, be ing bestowed by the people, the high est authority, and it would be the gros sest injustice to deprive the holders of such property of their rights. It is not believed that the voters of Garrard county will overlook the principles of justice and equity in this race. If the ollice belonged to Robinson and Rallard before Mr. Robinson's death, the le. maluder of the term belongs to Rallard and Mr. Robinson's widow. If the voters will calmly coiiaidtT this, as a matter of right and justice, they will not recall or revoke what they lutv ikrw, und Tom lUllard will be elwctMl bv an overwhelming majority. Adv.
