" I We are authorized to announce Hon. Harvey Helm, of Lincoln county, its it candidate for the Democratic nomina tion for Congress, in this, the eighth district of Kentucky, subject to the primary to he held August 191G. John M. Parker, Progressive nominee for Vice President will have no trouble in getting a new convention in Chicago on August 5th. The easiest thing in the world is to have u convention. It will be a real Progressive convention. None of those who have returned to the Republican camp or those who have joined the Democrats will bo welcome. The fata of this party is the fate of nil third parties. All the leaders will be in the Republican or Democratic party, and Mr. Parker's assertion that only the commissioned officers have de Berted, will bring few votes In Novem ber, In fact it was the boys in the trenches who deserted Col. Roosevelt and not vica versa. The Progressive voters began to slack as far back as 1913, and by 1914 there was merely a handful left. Why not bury it in the grave with that almost forgotten Popu list party. Those who say that the German sub marine which recently docked at Haiti- 20 more with n cargo of dyes, has broken the back of the English blockade nre sadly misinformed. If we are to be lieve the reports, the Deutschtand has n displacement of C0.OO0 tons or as sub marines go, a tonnage of 150 tons. At the rate the present boat travels, al lowing 15 days for the trip and about one week at each end for loading, und counting each submarine about two thirds efficient for repairs and adjust ment, then it can only make about five trips a year. When we consider that before the war our imports of dyes were C0.U0O tons n year, and that one submarine can carry only 750 tons a year we can easily see that the cross ing of the submarine was a remarkable achievement as a piece of daring, but that the commercial value of these trips to either Germany or the United States as a whole will have tobedemonstrated We are glad to give the same pub licity to the Helm article that we gave the article in our last week's issue, sent us by the publicity manager of Mr Montgomery. These communica tions have been published from time to time from the managers of belli Mr Helm and Mr Montgomery and all are charged at the regular rate. The word "advertisement" w a s omitted from the previous articles, but in the future all such communica tions from either candidate, will be so marked. TllE Cextual RECORD does not father any of the articles in question, from either candidate, but will gladly publish all such communica tions as advertisements, thereby giv ing our patrons both sides of the argu ments and leave it tj them to vote as they choose. After the primary TllE Central Record will heartily support the nominee and do its utmost to elect him. We regret the disappointment as well as the loss to our friends in this and surrounding counties resulting in the financial wreck which has over taken the Kentucky Rural Credit As sociation. Many in this section were led to invest on account of the manage ment, who consisted of the leading men of our state. Rut the arrangement which brought the concern on the finan cial rocks had been made before these men had gotten in actual charge. Pro fessional promoter! and general slick citizens usually get some highly res-, pected men in whom the public has confidence, in the lead, and while these men are at home attending to '.heir private affairs the promoter does his work. That which has resulted to the Rural Credit Association has been the e.id of hundreds of similar organiza tions in Kentucky. The only way to escape the lass and disappointment of such schemes is to invest jour money at home. Home enterprises may nut yield the income that is promised by the professional schemer who comes into your community selling stock, but usually proves to be the most satisfac tory investment in the long run. Gar rard county has lost thousands of dol lars in recent year in investments sim ilar to the lamented Kv Rural Credit Association. Let our people foster ai.d encourage home enterprises and in the future beware of the smooth promoter selling foreign Insurance stock und such things. SCOTT. Tne sad news of the death of Mrs. Ressie Singleton Scott cust u shadow over our town and the community in which she had lived fur most of her short but happy life was spent amongus, und every heart was touched with sympathy for the young husband who lies very ill of typhoid fever, this together with the fact she left an infant only a few hours old makes her death doubly sad. Mrs. Scott will be remembered in Lancaster us Ressie Singleton being u daughter of Mrs. Anna Singleton nr.d the lute Hundley Singleton. A few years ago she inuriiedMr. Ralph Scott, son of Mr and Mrs A. T. Scott, and for a while they resided in the Iluena Vista neighborhood but later moved to Vei sallies where she died Tuesday night. Possessing some of the noblest and finest qualities, generous to a great de gree, staunch and true to her friends, she will be greatly missed, not only In her family circle, but by nil who knew her. Resides her grief-stricken hu- band, mother and babe, she leaves two j sister, Mrs. Hambrick Sandifer. of Georgetown and Mrs. Walter Perkin, I of St. Louis to mourn her death. The bereaved family have the sympathy of the entire community in their sorrow. t Interment took place in the Lnncaster cemetery Wednesday afternoon. llUIMli MFM KY 111 liUVinU lllillVlVI MRS. PATTIE DUNCAN GILL. i j How true, how pathetically true, are the words of the poet who sang; "To the past go more dear faces, 1 Every year, ! As the loved leave vacant places I Every year. I Everywhere the sad eyes meet us I In the evenings hush they greet u I And to come to them enireat us i Every year." Again we are called upon to mourn ' the loss of u sweet friend whoso pass ing on last Friday evening brought sad , ness to many hearts. A voice is stilled, I a voice that always gave us sweetest ' welcome as her hand clasped ours in cordial greeting. i Possessed of a charming personality, Mrs. Gill had the-power of attracting I friends and those who came within the close circle of her friendship were l bound by even deeper ties of love, for 'all who knew her loved anditdmirtd her. , Although for several yeurs she had been in declining health and had almost I reached the seventy fourth milestone in life's journev. her weakening heart ' gradually earned her to that last spun ; i of life without either she or her loved ; ones realizing that a long and most ' useful life was closing. Mrs. Gill hud been spending the win I ter with her only daughter, Mrs. E. C. Uarnard in Washington, D. C, and her death was a great shock 'to her us well as other loved ones and friends in Lan- caster, as she was only sick a few hours. She died Friday night at ten o'clock ' und all that was mortal was brought buck to the old home where she first , saw the light of duy, where she played a a child, developed into beautiful girlhood, where she murrird in this the dearest of all places she was brought that those who knew her and loved her ! might look once more upon her face, ' that seemed so eaceful and to s,ay "all is well."

A COMMUNICATION, j (Advertisement 1 (To the Editors of The Central Record) ! I notice In your Issue of the 1.1th an nrticle unsigned, and which the natural presumption is that )nii father, yiui charge Hon. Harvey Helm with desert ing President Wilson In several install-1 j ces. From absolutely indisputable u- inority i gainer me louowing, wnicn shows the error of vour chnrce and shows tho error of your charge und which I trust you will, in your usual fairness, give the prominent space in your paper that you did the article i making the clrirfces. Mr Helm is charged with "desertion" j by failing to support the Great Rank-' ing and Currency Act. On September co black hair ami are very short ltjtb. 1913, he delivered a speech ill th m active, especially with their boles. House advocating the measure and urg-, which is n long knife something like ing its passage, stating among other , Garrard people use for cutting corn, things that it was an "insurance ; This is their principle wea.on and it is Bgainst panics." The speech was feared by all Americans in the Phllli printed in the Congressionl Record of ( pines. We will try to explain about that date, pages 5003-1 and was printed the ladies. 1 know all the young boys in pamphlet form at his own expense ' 0f Garrard will be interested in this and sent to 20,000 people of this dis trict, including those who are now at tempting to deceive the people by mis representation of his record. What higher evidence of support could n member of Congress give than to ad vocate the passage of a measure than an appeal to bis colleagues in its favor? In the second place Mr Helm is charged with deserting the President in the passage of the Immigration Hill, a measure which the writer sajs was "designed to exclude a great many ill iterates and undesirable foreigners .Manilla where the natives ure more from making America a breeding place t educated, they try to dress the Amen ami an as) lum fur crime," which bill can style, ut that I dmVt think any of the writer now discovers Mr. Helm my Ky friends would fancy them, voted for, but which Mr Wilon vetoed. j Their principle diet is fish and rice. I If the bill possesses all the virtues tho j They eat the same stjle as a monkey, ' writer ascribes to it, what crime was ' with their fingers. A cook stove, safe ! there in supporting- the nicakUre, the and such things as that would be use President to tile contrary notwithstaud-j less for them. Most all the houstis ' consist of a few bunilwo poles tied to I The charge of desertion on the Anti-1 ,.,.tlier with grass fur a roof, ami nut j Trust Rills is u labored und overstrained i riiom enough tu, whip a dog in. The effort. Mr. Helm, before leaving for ( farming is great for an American to , Kentucky on the funeral committee to , Wuter buffaloes are used to pull ; accompany Senator' Rradley 'a unly. j the burden. Farming implements eon i had voted for the rule that made these nut of one wagon with two wheel, and oius party measures, uierouy lining tip with the President. His unavoidable detention in Kentucky at the time of their passage is the sole and only basis for the charge of desertion, which to a fair-minded man must seem as er ronious as it is unfair. On the fourth ami lust charge of de sertion, namely the Panama Canal Ex emption Act. Mr. Helm voted in ac cordance with the specific plank in the democratic platform adopted ut Haiti more, standing with speaker Clark, Majority Leader Underwood and all the other House Party Leaders. He explained his position on the lloor of tho House in a speech delivered on Murch 31. 1911, L'O.OOO copies of which he stnt to the voters of this distiict, and thereafter was renominated for Congress without opposition. Out of n thousand or more record votes Mr. Helm has cast, the four above enumerated are the only ones that tho writer can pick a flaw with, and it is a record any Representative should be justly proud of. Horrowing an ex pression from base ball lingo, it is u butting nverage of above u thousand, which places him in class of the famous TyrusCobb, I believe the fair-minded readers of the Central Itecoid will agree with mu that even the four votes do not justify or substantiate the charge of desertion, but on tho con trary, there is something about the charges that suggest thu death-rattle of the cause the said writer seems to be championing. Furthermore, if it be true that Mr Helm was not and is not un adminis tration democrat, it is passing strange that the press dispatches from Wash ington to the Kentucky dully papers have nut disclosed the fact long before thu writer of thu desertion article made the Imaginary discovery. I cannot believe that the intelligent voters of this district want their Hep presentutive to play the rubber stamp act. If so the job should bo let to the luwest bidder and his instructions pinned to the lapel of his coat collar before going to Washington to cast Ids votes. E. C. WALTON, Stanford, Ky., July 15, 1910.

Their dresa is very peculiar by the side of our American beauties. Their skirts are sometimts like the American style, except they have about ten yards more dies at the bottom and hungs to the rear something like the tail of "Hale)' comet". They wear something aruund their neck I bae never been able to pronounce yet, it resembles a horse collar and is made of stilf cloth. Their shoes are the same that God gave them when they were brought to earth. Around the city of covered like Hit- roof of a house one plow the same ttle that Ailani and Eve invented with some bamboo work attached to it und shaped like a ham mer from un old flint lock nlle, that our fore-fathers used in early du.
