There Is no way of improving a place as much as by encouraging good merchants, good schools and good peo ple to settle among you, and this can not be done unless you spend your money at home, and boost your town. The United States will Insist on the recall, of Dr. Dumba, the Austrian Am bassador, and his departure on "leave of absence" will be unsatisfactory. Ambassador Penfleld, at Vienna, was Instructed to m ake this clear to the Austrian Government. Save your money and triple your light.

The putting down of concrete pave ments continue and soon Lancaster will be one of the best paved towns in the state.

All who' are Interested in the salvation cf souls, are cordially invited to join us. S. H. Pollitt. With the increasing use of motor vehicle the danger to those using the streets Is growing very greatly, and every effort should be made to diminish this danger. It seems that the proper observance of other rules of the road is hardly secondary t that of keeping the speed wjthin limits, and, after some year of driving a car, it seems that careless turning of corners, even at moderate speed, Is one of the greatest hazards we encounter. This is we! controlled at those street intersections In cltiesjyhere policemen are stationed but In small towns like this, one lis to look out for themselves and go slow especially when turning corners.

The Golden Jubilee convention of the Kentucky Sunday School Association will be held In Louisville, October 7-10. Reduced rate have been granted on all railroads In Kentucky for the occasion l and an attendance of several thousand Is expected, Including many delegates ' from this county. MEETING CLOSES. One of the best meetings ever held In Lancaster has just closed at the Presbyterian church. The Hev. Hlbsh man, who conducted the meeting was a zealous, consecrated christian, a forceful speaker, a man who reached the heart of every one who heard him. His sermons were powerful, convincing and showed thoughtful preparation. Much good was accomplished not only for the Presbyterian church but the whole community ONE FAULT OF A DOG. "A pusson's dog, sah. Is one thing shawt o" bein' de best friend he's got!" stated old Brother Haws he, who was a great hand to philosophize. "In health he 'joices wid yo', In sickness he sutlers, too; when yo's in jail he's wait in' right outside de do' for yo' and when dey turns you loose he greet vo' wld a yell o' welcome. He's yo' guide and companion and friend; but, dad blame him, yo' cain't borry a dollar ofl'm him, nomattahif yo'dess nach'ly cotter have it!" BIG APPLE CROP. There was perhaps never raised in Garrard county such an abundant crop of apples, and of such a fine quality, as this Year. It seems hardly credible that this county should produce apples wMch would weigh a pound each, but this is a common occurrence this year. Farmers have made the fruit Into vine gar, housewives have "put up", dried, sulphured, and preserved in every way Imaginable, and yet much of the fruit is wasting. There Is no market for the apples, and in many localities the fruit Is going to waste. TOMATOES SCARCE. That tomatoes are quoted at five cents each in the city market is not surprising in view of the great scarcity tn the country of this much prized veg etable. Between an errly wet season, a later dry one, the various kinds of Insect enemies and some kind of a vine disease, the crop in this section has been an almost complete failure In jo far as the later varieties are concerned, the housewives are experiencing great difficulty In securing a sufficient quan tity of the green vegetables for their pickles and catsup. A FINE WORK. Good Roads Day was observed in Christian, Todd and Trigg countiea last week with much enthusiasm. The re sult is that many mile of road have been improved, bushes and weeds cut and trash removed. Trigg county citi zens are continuing their work. In Christian county between eight hun dred and one thousannd men responded to the call, many who did net feel like going in person, sending a substitute. A total of rbout fifty miles of road, the three proposed routes thru Christian county worked FEAST FOR THE GODS. A bumper sweet potato crop seems probable In the county this year; per simmons alss are plentiful, and coinci dent with these facts comes the news that there Is an unprecedented number of 'Possums in the country. This is indeed gratifying news to the good old time colored man who has been accus tomed to feast upon "Possum and sweet taters. Indeed we have known many epicures, not colored ones either, who were willing to pronounce n good fat possuTi, one that had feasted on persimmons, properly served with sweet potatoes, a feast fit for the gods. IMPORTANT NEWS. We are glad to state to our readers that Mr. William Rice Amon will write the school notes this year, "Billy" Miller wrote them last year and they were always enjeyed by those interest ed In our school and our boys, and girls. Some may not think these notes im portant, bnt we think it is very im portant If some school boy reads a good essay, or speaks well a piece, or sing well a song, or stands high in the class room, that kind of mention should be made publicly of such success, for more young'minds are Injured by the want of cheering words than are made vain by an excess of such praise. INTERESTING TO NIMRODS. Mr. James Bourne a farmer of the "cathole" section of the county, while fishing in Dix river last week caught a black bass of the "small mouth1 variety, which be avers weighed four pounds, and as Mr. Bourne Is not a fisherman, and his veracity ha never been questioned on general subjects. we accept hi statement a true, tho'we would surely have liked to have seen the fish. Mr. Bourne was using an ordinary hand cane pole, and a time honored "shiner" minnow. HI catch enthused the local nlmrods and many have visited the particular bole of water tince but no further catches have been teporttd. FROST TIIE 21ST. Reports from several sections of the county lav thefe was frost In the low lying districts and along creek bottoms . "ii uit? uiKni cu aepi. ust anu 4u. Not of the killing variety, but frost just the same. PROUD OF NAME Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Graw have sent out beautiful little cards announcing the birth of Garlsn Hunter Graw who came to bless their home September 8th. Mr. and Mrs. Zimmer are very proud of the name as It la nrmed for the Kengarlan Hotel. EXPORTERS SOLD. Mr. Luthar Glbbs last week deliver ed to Henry S. Gaywood tor Swift & Co., eighty head of export cattle which averaged 1380 pounds, and for which he received 8j cents per pound. This is the best bunch of cattle rais ed in the county and one of the best sales we have noted. THE EVENTS OF EVENTS. Sunday School Teacher: "Now, children, we must bear in mind that between our last week's lessons and this quite a period of time is represent ed as having elapsed. During this time a very important event has taken place. Yes, Annie, you may tell us what it is". Annie: "We've all got our fall hats." HAPPY GRANDFATHER Mr. R. E. McRoberts has a broad smile on hls-face these days that doesn't wear ofT. A telegram, Saturday, an nounced the advent of a little daughter In the home of Mr. and Mrs. Richard Buckner Spindle, at Norfolk Va. Lancaster will lay claim to this dainty little Miss as one of her own daughters as it has never relinquished its claim on the fond mother. HAVE FLED TO THE FALL TIMBERS. Ten days and nights spent under the sky, in the free light of the sun by day and under the soft benlgnance of the stars at night. Ten days of perfect rest, and enjoyment, this Is the record that will restore to J. Rockwell Smith, R. L. Elkin, Saulley Hughes and Fred Friable, health, an abundance of good jokes, SOME fish stories and submis sion ta settle down at work once more. Annually these fishermen flee to the tall timbers where for ten days they do little else than teach fishing worms how to swim. Their fishing has only the excuse of a desire to amuse fishing worms and is not necessitated by any lack.of food in the family larder, as they have all kinds of food in season and out at Charity's.

For Sheriff To the voter 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 emolument or fees of the office. If Mr. Ballard is elected for the two years, yet remaining of the term, he ts pledged, and justly so, to give the widow of Mr. RoUsBsm half the profits or fee 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 tUprive the holders of such property of their right. It is not believed that the voter of Garrard county will overlook the principle of justice and equity In this race. If the office belonged to Robinson and Ballard before Mr. Robinson deatn, the re mainder of the term belongs to Ballard and Mr. Robinson's widow. If the voter will calmly consider this, a 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.
