President Wilson Is making " close study of the probable cost of streng' thenlng the army and navy. Do not burn your leaves as it Is very unhealthy and besides you need them on your garden as they are valuable manure.

There are two ways of getting Into a newspaper purchasing an interest and purchasing an interview. There is still another way pulling the wool over the editor' eyes and getting In for nothing. This is n very popular form of entry. Whenever you hear a man glorifying the past and driveling of the gcod old days, you may be suru that man's physical and intellecturnl powers are waning, and that he is straggling farther and farther behind in the rush of the world's progress. The best thing about the good old days is that they have not a return ticket. The scarcest things on earth today are men. There are lots or "average men." and a few men of "more than ordinary nbilit," but when it comes to real men men of character, men of force, men whose names tire things to conjure with, men whose time is worth a thousand'dollars a week because peo ple trust them they are few and far between,.

The first prize winner in the class, 12 to 24 months, was Wm. A. Elkln, son of Lee Elkln and grandson of Armp Elkin, both of whom were born in Lancaster, so he is a Garrard Co., product after all. TWO ROADS IN COUNTY Being Constructed Under State Aid. Over two miles of state aid road has been built in the county, one mile on the Stanford pike and about one mile on the Lexington road and all who have seen these roads, pronounce them the best they have ever seen. Three miles of this road Is being constructad by the cnunty under the supervision of the state agent, while fourteen miles has been let by contract to Hughes Brothers and Ward, for for $1.45 a cubit yard. The estimated cost of these two roads Is about $1,000 a mile, the aid the county receives from the state, paying for one half of it, reduces the cost very materially. It is thought by many if these roads are now given n good coat of oil, they wilt lust for fifteen years without any further work than to keep the ditches open. The metal for the Stanford road is being shipped from Mt Vernon and about twenty car loads a week ure being delivered. POWER FROM DANVILLE Is Latest More For Municipal Ownership. Dr. Fayette Dunlap and Messrs Irvine and Llpps of Danville met by invitation, a special meeting of tho city council last Monday night, at which time the advisability of getting electricity from The Danville Light and Power Company was discussed. The plan suggested is a very plausible one, while nothing de finite has been proposed as to the price, It is believed by those who know, that it will be much cheaper than it can be produced here. These gentlemen re presenting the Danville power p'ant, have promised to make a proposition to the council the next meeting night, which will be the first Monday night in October. Cities very much larger than Lancaster are getting there "juice" from other cities; Paris being one that gets her service from Lexington, we are told, for less than two cents a kllowat. It is thought that Lancaster by building the line to Danville, can get this "juice" for about two cents. This will give us a twenty-four hour service at a much less cost than we are now getting for an eight hour service. The city should own and control her light plant and this looks like a good pro position on the face of it. We handle only genuine Kanawha salt. The best Is none too good for our customers. Hudson, Hughes & Farnau1 SCOTT News came to Lancaster yesterday announcing the death of Mrs. Ida Scott of Jessamir.e county. Mrs. Scott had been in declining health for some time and her death was not unexpected to her intimate friends end relatives. She wos a sister of Airs. Homer W. Batson, of Louisville. WHAT THE DOG TAX DOES. The dog tax, after paying for the sheep killed, will contribute $39,022.4G toward the education of the 743,501 school children In Kentucky this year. While it will go back to the counties from which it orginated, and while some counties exhausted the fund pav ing for dogtklllcd sheep, which makes the distribution uneaual. the dnir will have contributed a proportionate share or the atate school fund amounting to over 18 cents for each child.

For Sheriff To the voters of Garrard County:- It is generally known that the late Curt A. Robinson was elected sherilT 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 juajly so, to give the widow of Mr. RoMfeen half the profits or fees of the office, which as certainly belong to her as 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 office belonged to Robinson and Ballard before Mr. Robinson a death, the re mainder of the term belongs to Ballard and Mr, Robinson's widow. If the voters will calmly consider this, as a matter of right and justice, they will not recall or revoke what they have done, and Tom Ballard will be elected by an overwhelming majority. Adv.
