There are two ways of getting Into a

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,.

likely there will be other buyers here
also.

BABIES HEALTH CONTEST
At State Fair.
With blue ribbons pinned to each
shoulder of theif little white frocks,
and a fat bank account snugly tucked
away in the pockets of the fond papas
and mammas, the two grand prize win
ners of the babies' he.lth contest at

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

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.

GERMANS HAVE LOST
TWENTY SUBMARINES.
The Germans have lost twenty sub
marines since the beginning of tho war.
according to an editorial note in the
Motor Ships and Motor Boats, while
the British losses have been only seven,
including the E-7, the destruction of
which was announced yesterday. When
the war commenced, the paper declares.
Germany had eleven sea going sub
marines and sixteen of the smaller type.
while up to June ten new boats had
been added. The assertion is made

VOTE FOR TOM BALLARD.
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.
