The Kentucky Rural Credits Associa tion, of which former Governor Me Creary is President has gone Into the hands of receivers ard it is thought that the stock holders will not get more than twenty percent of their original invest ment. Of the $373,000.00 collected as cap itol stock only $1315,000.00 remains, and this sum is invested in first morgageson farms. The losses of the company seem due to mismanagement, chief I v in allow ing a 25 per cent commission to agents who sold stock. Claude Mercer, one of the directors of the Association, had the following to say in regard to the failure. "You may say for me", "that there has been a great fraud committed some where, and I believe that some of the money can be recovered". 'The original promoters are to blame" "as they went into it only as a money making scheme, I think the whole thing should be probed and all persons hit who need hitting. The theory was practical, but the commis sion contract knocked the thing in the head. The conduct of the officers of the company is in no wise responsible for the failure of the company." Mr. l. U.

If the story told by Compton is true, and it is borne out by his wife and brother, with whom Coinu ton had been living since coming to Logan county recently, the proceedings are somewhat out of the ordinary. Convicted alter his indictment on the charge of selling liquor In dry territory, Compton was fined $300 and sentenced to 100 days in jail. It Was understood between himself, the sherilf ot Gar rard county and the county prosecutor, Compton declares, that If he paid his fine the jail sentence would not be en forced, provided be left the county.
