VIOLATIONS OF LAW. Many owners of aueomobiles in this city violate the law with impunity. A great many of tbam seem to be speed crazy add drive through the streets aa if they were on a speed-way. They act as if pedestrians and others had no rights upon our streets and they alone had the right of way, A great number cut around the' corners and never give any warning of their approach. Some go speeding over streets at night with' out lights, and very few automobiles have rear lights, which the law pro. vides for. Now, we are not knockers and fault finders, but simply call tho attention to the officers to tho flagrant violations of the law governing motor vehicles. The noise made by these machines near the churches during services is nuisance and should be abated. Of course no one does this purposely. Uut can't it be cut out en-irelyT Ricemor.d Cllmax-Mtdisonian. SIC 'EM HARVEY.

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 any man, and that George T. Ballard Jr., was his chief deputy, George T. Ballard Sr., his father, being a partner with Mr. Robinson in the emoluments or fees of the office. If Mr. Ballard is elected for the two years, yet remaining of the term, he is pledged, and juadv so, to give the widow of Mr. Roofsfsfcn half the profits or fees of the office, which as certainly belong to her aa 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 tbe votera of Garrard county will overlook the principles of justice and equity In this race. If the office belonged to Robinson and Ballard before Mr. Robinson's death, the re mainder of the term belongs to Ballard and Mr. Robinson's widow. If tba. votera will calmly consider this, as a matter of right and justice, they will not recall or revoke what they hare done, and Tom Ballard will be elected by an overwhelming majority, 1 Adv.
