One of the most difficult of the edi tor's jobs is to get facts about 'births. marriages and deaths. I'eople seem to think he ought to know these things by intuition. If not that, the birth, mar riuge or death is of such importance in the immediate family that it ispresum ed that the editi.r will be informed by some such wireless or just grow into the information. Then, when the paper comes out und no mention is mude of the event, the editor is blamed for not running u good newmper or nut getting all the news. Remember th-ie are u good many people in this county. If the editor Knew each of them by name, besides their family bistoiy nnd the chief events in the lives of every individual, he wouldn't be an editor. He'd be u demi-god, resting bis feet on a cloud uud sipfiing umbrosia insteud of iuhubiting an ollice chair and wondering whet e the money for the next white piper bill is coming from. We're anxious for news for the paper, nnd it won't put you out much to drop by the ollice nnd notify us or telephone us what s happening ut your house. TELEPHONE EXCHANGE Moves To Its New Quartets.

Tho Record office is now ut work on a new directory with ubout four hun dred names und some wtll displayed advertlsemeets of the enterprising merchants of the city. This new direc tory will be out about the first of the month. MAYOR DAVIDSON RESIGNS. Hands In Resignation At Council Meeting Last Monday Night. No little surprise nnd regret was created at the meeting of the city council last Monday night when Mayor Davidson handed ln,hts resignation to be accepted at once. Without except ion Mr. Davidson has made one of the best Mayors the city of Lancaster has ever had and his friends regret that he lelt that such a step had to be taken. He stated that his main reason for re signing was that much of the duties of the Police Judge was devolving Uion him and the result was that It was materially interfering with his private business. It is to be hoped that things may be adjusted so that these impor tant duties may be lifted from the shoulders of the Mayor and in such case, there is a possibility that he may be re-elected tonight at the adjourned meeting of the council. The city can ill airord to lose so valuable n man as Mr. Davidson at its head and the Rec ord hopes that adjustments can be made and Mr. Davidson re-elected to night. THE PEOPLE DEMAND A GOOD ROAD SUPERVISOR. GARRARD ROADS NEED INTELLIGENT THOUGHT AND WORK. The position of Road Engineer in this county draws an annual salary cf One Thousand Dollars ($1000.). The job comes by uppointment and there are no Incidental expenses, such as making a race for the ordinary office, to secure it. The pay equals to three and one third dollars per day for three hundrej working days. If any one doubts that oar turnpikes need the three hundred days service of a good energetic, prac tical business man, let him ride over the roads of the County. To those who are making constant complaint and who are every day reminded as they travel, that our turnpikes are turning to mud roads, let it be remembered that this condition is brought about by neglect and incompetent management since our turnpikes have been free, and the blame does not lie upon any single administra tion. Hut the present administration must meet the conditions at this time. The failure of the past is just now be ing developed and Judge Arnold is per haps getting far more criticism than he deserves. Rut there Is a remedy and it Is up to him to take advantage of it. The mistakes of the past must he cor rected. The road engineer that he is about to appoint should be a competent man and suitable for the position. If he fails in the selection he must bear the responsibility. It is his duty to the public to find and appoint a rilan who is not only competent, but who has the energy and determination to put the roads in condition. This can not be done by any man who expects to sit in an office in Lancaster and talk politics and discuss the issues of the day and draw his per diem. It will take some Intelligent work on the part of the road engineer und his full time to make any showing. Froi.i the complaint we have heard we do not believe the people of the county will longer tolerate the neglect in our road system and those who are now in chorge would do well to under stand the impatience along this line. And" Judge Arnold ought to have this in mind and what !i expected of him when he names Mr. Uogie's successor. PREACHINGS ANTIOCH. Rev. Shock, of Lexington will preach at the Antioch church next Sunday morning. The public cordially invited. TO THE CITIZENS OF GARRARD. Of any other County In Kentucky or any other State.
