Any person serving a newspaper in any capacity usually is made to realize the need of getting copy into the ollice on tune. Occasional correspondents, however, and the public generally, do not see why their copy should not be printed in full, even though it is brought in at the last moment. The lower branch of the Kentucky Legislature passed two bills last Mon day introduced by Representative Wil liam A. Perry, of Louisville, one pro viding a fine for untruthfulness in ad vertising and the other giving a person whose property is sold for taxei a year after becoming of age to redeem the prorwrty. If our good and loyal friends could take one glance at our books they would be appalled at the amount of money that is due us on subscription to this paper.

Hut we can not pay our own bills with the honor nd the integrity of our subscribers. We put up the cash. When the moon passed between the sun and the earth today, a shadow 50 to 100 miles in diameter was cast which traveled over a space 9,000 miles in length, the shadow began far out in to the l'acitic ocean, traveling in a northeasterly direction. The shadow touched land ubout 200 miles south of l'anaina and crossed portions of Colum bia and Venezuela. In this latitude about three-tenths of the sun was ob scured. Tho eclinse was visible here thru smoked glasses about U o'clock. About thu tun" a small portion of the sun was touched by the moon. The eclipse ended at 11 o'clock. Mark Twain once had a few words to say about prohibition: "I am a friend of temperance, and want It to succeed, but I don't think prohibition is practical. The Germans, you see, prevent it. Look at them. They have just invent ed a method of making brandy out of sawdust. Now what chance will pro hibition have when a man can take a ripsaw and go out and get drunk with a fence rail? What is the good of pro hibition if a man is able to make brandy mashes out of shingles of his roof, or if hx can get the delirium tremens by drinking the legs oil" the kitchen table?" GRAFT.

Whom shall we ask, the Mayor, tho City Council, the Commercial Club, the. Woman s Club or the Hoy Scouts, why we have had n? lights in the City Park for the past two weeks? Perhaps we should tell our troubles to the police or take them to the City Attorney, but at any rate we would just like to know the reason why the lights are not burn ing. ECHO SAY'S WHY! fronting by Stanford's example, the Lancaster Kecord wants to know why the city deposit there Is not let out to tho highest bidder. No satisfactory reason can be given for not doing so. It is the taxpayer's money and they are entitled to any benefits derived from its use. Public funds of every nature, should be handled in the same way. Interior Journal. BUY SOME.

After a long cross examination, "Grant" confessed, according to Chief Drown, that he was J. W. Rice, and that he lived with his wife in Forest Hill ut 820 Whitney avenue. He said ne came there from Chuttanooga two yeais ago.

L. Roberts' Furniture Com pany of Lexington, lust summer. The ticket ugent, Mr. Kirk, at Lan caster, and the conductor on u Louis ville & Nashville train were ut police station Friday afternoon and accompan ied the detectives to the county jail of Lexington where Rice is confined.

Mrs. Rice visited her husband Satur day morning in jail, lie said to a Lead, er reporter Saturday that he felt very badly. Physicians have visited him since his confinement. BIG CROWD IN TOWN MONDAY. Although the weather was what might be called "unpropitious", to say the lea.t of It, last Monday, the crowd was one of the largest ever seen In town. Every one was In a good humol and made the best of a steady down pour as well as mud and slush. Livery stables did n land office business, as every stall was full to over flowing. while buggies and nutomobiles lined the squsre and streets. Truly, Lancaster looked like a metropolis and took care of her visitors In a WBy that did her proud. Come to see us again and the oftener you come the better you will like us. Amcrig the many happy hearts that left town Ollie Koyse'a was the happiest while James Dalton's was a close second. THE LAW WITH THE BjlRK ON IT. Many of our subscribers ask us each dsy why wo do not publish a list of the prizes that have been drawn at the two contests recently held In our town. ouch matter has been declared unmail able by the authorities at Washington and Postmaster Hrown has had his in structions in very plain language from llicse iowers that be. Section 574 of the Postal Laws of 1913 says: 'Newspapers and other publica tions in transit which contain lot tery advertisements or lists of prizes drawn at a lottery, shall be held and a report made to the As sistant Attorney General for the Post Office Department forinstruc tions . Now this is the law with the 1 ark nn it and Is the reason why we have never published in detail a list of the drawings. PROUD OF OUR COURT HOUSE. The work of remodeling the Court House having been completed in the most satisfactory manner, those who will occupy offices in it are moving In and will soon be cosily ensconced in their new and beautiful quarters. The first door on the right is that of Sheriff Tom Ballard's, tin second door on the right is the office of Circuit Clerk, Joe A. Burnside, then comes County Clerk Will Hamilton's office. On the left, first door, is that of County Attorney. G. C. Walker, on the same side, the County Judge and Fiscal Court rooms. Our court house had long needed re modeling and repairing and now that it is completed it is a thing of beauty and will be the joy and the pride of our county for years to come. It is more commodious, is steam heated, well lighted and ventilated, and the offices together with the whole building are in keeping with the time and place in wuitu we live. RICHMOND MARKET.

I Mr. John Bogie who hus been the Road Supervisor for Garrard county for I the past two years resigned this office I lust week and has accepted a position with the Newport Culvert Company, of Newport, Ky., and nssumed his duties , lust .Monday morning. This is a very lucrative job. paying $1,800 a year and his expenses. Mr. Bogie is admirably fitted for the position and his friends are proud of his promotion. His family will remain In this city, as Mr. Bogie will be on the road all of his time, but I hopes to run in home every week. , The resignation of Mr. Bogie will I cause the appointment of his successor and there is much speculation us to who the lucky man will be. The position of Road Supervisor is one of the most im- 'portent in the county, requiring thought and experience, beside which a rigid examination must be passed to obtain it. County Judge C. A. Arnold makes the annointment. which must 1m mtEHpil ' by the Fiscal Court. There are many applicants for the place and we trust u good man will be chosen. NOTICE.

Vuught, of Winches- ter, was overcome by gas fumes and found unconscious in the bath room of her apartments last Monday, and for a time it was thought she was in a serious condition. She remained unconscious for several hours. Mrs. Vaught enter ed the bath room about noon and had the gas turned very high and it is sup posed that she was overcome very sud denly. Friends called sever times over the telephone and getting no answer went to Investigate, and their timely arrival probably saved her from death. A WISE MEASURE. A bill has been introduced in the Kentucky Legislature to reduce the number of pre-emptory challenges in felony cases. This measure has had the endorsement of the County Attor neys Association and also of the Com monwealth's Attorneys. It is a meas ure which The News has always favor ed. The large number of challenges now granted the accused without cause are not used to secure a fair and im partial trial, as the best men summoned for jury service are the ones excused, in bud cases. They ure used generally to get the worst jury possible in hopes that by this means, if an acquittal is impossible, that one or two men can be found to hang the jury. Ifthenumber of challenges are reduced the number of guilty men who escape will be re duced, but no person on trial for a crime will have any of his just rights taken from him, nor will the probability of his conviction, if he is innocent, be endangered. The change in the law has always been defeated in the Leg islature by a number of crimnal lawyers in the Legislature who made their money by defending criminals and whose success is marked by a number of guilty men they are able to acquit.

NEW COMER-"Snd my wire arty THE UNIVERSAL CAR j 111 EX-GARRARDITE Celebrates Serentj-Six Anniversary. A few of the older citizens of this city will remember with pleasure Mr. James W. Ramsey, formerly of this county, but now long a resident of Washington, Ind. He was an intimate friend of Mr J. W. Pumphrey and was his "best man" at the tatters wedding nearly fifty years ago. Mr Ramsey now ranks as one of the leading citi zens of Washington and the following from the Washington, Ind. Herald, at tests his popularity: "The beautiful home of fjames W. Ramsey, city councilman and revered civil war veteran, was the scene of an enjoyable gathering Saturday night when his charming wife, to celebrate her husband's seventy-sixth birthday anniversary, entertained the city coun cil. Mayor McCarty, and a few invited friends. An impromptu program of toasts fol lowed the serving of an elaborate sup per, Mayor McCarty. in his usual pleas ing manner, presiding as master of cei monies. The responses, brief but to the point, werelprofuse in congratula tions to the honor guest, whose resi dence in Washington since 1872 has made him one of the city's most honor ed and prominent citizens. As a climax for the evening, Mayor McCarty pre sented Mr. Ramsey with a gold-headed umbrella, the gift of his colleagues in council. Mr Ramsey's response, de livered with an emotion that indicated a deep feeling, was most appropriate." TO OUR COUNTRY PATRONS Our new store Is equipp ed with everything you need.
