Lancaster is especially fortunate in having high-class and desirable retail stores, especially among the grocery establishments, but none carry a super ior lino of goods to that to bo found nt H. D. Lee & Son. This firm has been identified with the commercial interest! of the town, and from the start gained n reputation for handling only the best and freshest goods. The premises ore neatly arranged and the business well managed. Here you will find every thing pertaining to fancy and staple groceries including teas, cofTees, cereals canned goods, flour, lard, fruits, veg etables, etc. A full assortment of all the popular and desirable brands of flours will be found in the varied stock, while the prices and quality always compare with those of other dealers in the community. Patrons of this store realue that they get the best goods and a service that is unsurpassed. A trial will convince you that you will make no mistake if you will send, or phone your orders to this firm for any thing and everything in the grocery line. Deliveries are made promptly. Thev are gentlemen of high standing in the town and deserve praise for the manner in which they have built up their business, and not a few citizens are showing their appreciation of their fair dealings and courteous treatment by giving them their trade. Their Phone is 213. E. B.

It will take an unusual rain for this sason of the year to give any immediate relief. But the most serious side of the situation is the future. The leaks in the lake are be coming larger and the consumption of the water by the public greater. Any dry season the cily will ba out of water for month. present coun. cil is in no way responsible for any mis takes in the location or construction of the present plant. As much as it may be regreted, that we have so serious a matter before the city, complaining of past mistakes will not accomplish any thing. The citizens of the city must get together and endeavor to handle the situation if possible- What tc do and how to do it, is one of the largest business matters the city has ever had to face. The people should all cooperate in this undertaking and let there be no mistake in any step in the future. The health of the com munity depends upon an adaqautc sup ply of pure water for private con sumption und the safty of the property depends upon sufficient water for fire protection. Sounds Uncomfortable. The emperor of Japan Bleeps on a tug with bamboo sticks for a pillow. New Peril. Hickory dlckory dock, the mouse ran up the clock. "Heavens!" cried the pretty girl, "suppose the brute runs up it wrUt wutch !" Browning's Magazine. Corroboration. A policeman, whose vtldvnco was taken at hi bedside In the hospital, deposed: "The prlMiuer wit upon me, calling inu un ass, it precious dolt, a tcarccrow, a rugumutllu uud un Idiot." And, this being the conclusion of tils depositions, lits signature was pre ceded by ttio formal ending, "All tt which I swear Is true." Food Required by the Aged. A treat English physician, Dr. (leorgo Clieyni', Ktutcs that nfter fifty years of nge the amount of food should be docreused gradually. At eighty, If n muu becomes so old, be nhould eat about an much un u child of live.

A Pittslield (Mass.) mother told her little on to drop his penny In the pinto when ttio man cumo round In the church. He did ns he was told. Tbo man didn't come buck and the young Bter begun to ask the reason why. Hu became quite noisy In his demand to know when that luun was going to brlug buck bin penny. Mother quiet tnl him qu best the could and after church explained. The class, or standing, of a commu nity is invariably judged by its officials. There can be no better index to its high standard than this one fact. Certainly if the casual observer were to form an estimation of Garrard county on this basis, it could be none other than the highest. And among those who are prominent and efficient workers, none stand out more prominently than does the present deputy assessor, Mr E. B. Ray, who has announced his candidacy for nomination of Assessor of Garrard at the next Democratic primary. Mr. Ray is a young man full of the vim and energy that is so needful in this day and time to cope with the situation that daily presents itself. Born and ret red in this county he is a man par ticularly qualified for the position to which he aspires. It will not be a new and untried office with him, for he is familiar with every detail; it would not be speculative on the part of the voters as to whether he could fill the office satisfartory and efficiently, for he has served the people faithfully and without an objection for the past two years. He knows the valuation of Garrard Co. lands; he is familiar with its topography, its resources and ad vantages; he knows the taxpayers, and they know him to be a gentleman of the highest honor ap'l strictest integrity combined with sound judgment and fair and impartial decisions. Mr. Kay's long line o ancestors were of the blue stocking democrats, and like his fore fathers he too, is Bn ardent supporter of tiie administration. That his election will be certain is not feared by his many friends who want him elected by the biggest majority ever before polled by a candidate. And there is little doubt but that he will be the next Assessor of Garrard. J. F. HOLTZCLAW & SON. The comfortable home is one essential to life's happiness.

BLUE GRASS DAIRY & ICE CO Of the many enterprises In Lancaster that stand out conspicuous for their worth as industries, none is surpassed. possibly, by the Blue Grass Dairy and Ico Company, manufacturers of ice and ice crjam, of which Messrs H. V. and W.R. Bastln are owners. These gentle men have been identified with the In dustrial progress of the town and com munity In such a manner that their ef forts are greatly appreciated by the citizens, for the firm not only supplies the home trade with the best and purest product in ice manufacture but the the people throughout this section are taken care of during the heated term when ice is so much needed. There is not a similar plant in this section that is better equipped for caring for the needs of the consumer than in this one. The machinery is all new and of the improved type, the industry was es tablished here about four years ago, and on account of the superior grade of ice marketed it is never idle but run to its full capacity to care for the large business already established. The ice cream plant which is operated in con nection, furnishes the soda fountain and family trade in this and the adjoin ing counties with ice cream, only the richest and best cream being used in its manufacture. It has that home flavor and taste that you do not get with the products of the large concerns. Messrs Bastin have been the recipient of many compliments on their delicious, pure and favored creams. To be abreast of the times and equipped for caring for the needs of their many patrons in other lines, they also operate a general store, which is conducted on the cash basis. The stock is one of the most complete and well-assorted to be found in this section, while the goods are fresh and desirable. Everything in groceries, produce, as well as notirns. dry goods, clothing, hardware, etc, is carried. The franchise for supplying the town with electric lights and power was re cently purchased by these gentlemen, and they are now arranging nil the pre liminary plans lor the erection or an immense elttric plant, one capable of suppl) ing all the power necessary for lighting, driving and heating purposes. A twenty-four hour service will be operated as soon as they have complet ed the plant and installed the machinery. This will be a boon to the citizens of the town, and something that has been badly needed for years past. Their franchise will become effective July 1. 1917. BASTIN TELEPHONE CO. There are many cities with a much larger population than Lancaster that can boast of as good a telephone ser vice as the Bastin Telephone Company is giving its patrons. This is an iniie- nendent concern, being operated and rnmlnrteil free nf tfll! trust and monopoly companies. Under the man-! ugement of Mr. J. R. Cornn, who as sumed control of the company's busi ness about two years ago, the service has been improved fully 100 per cent; in fact, there is no comparison of the ser vice of today with that received by the patrons before the new cable distribu tion was installed, which is taking the place of the old iron wire one wire sys tem in the town. The company is giv ing a service that is unexcelled, not only in Lancaster but over the entire county. The telephone is one of the essentials of this day and time, for no home is really complete without it. It pays for itself, in many instances, in u single day in the transaction of business; besides, when you need a physician or medicine it iJ often the saving of a life. In fact, indispensable, and every one should have a phone in their home. The rates are now so reasonable thut it is no lunger looked upon as a luxury intended fur people of means, but prac tically even one can airoru a phone now. Lancaster is recognized us being one of the best cable towns in thestute. The operators i:i charge of the local board are polite und attentive, giving quick uud efficient connections, thoroughout the day and night. The citizens of the town and county should lend their support to this enter prise, for it is deserving of your pat- roncge. The rates for town connec tions, as well hi homes und business houses in the county can be obtuined by phoning the management. If you haven't u phone in your home, you will find it the greatest convenience und help you ever bought for the low price charged. W. J. ROMANS.

"SAFETY FIRST" Preparedness is the all-absorbing topic of the day, and there was never b question proposed of greater moment to the American people than this one. Preparedness in all things, but not least among the number, preparedness in case of fire or death. The latter Is sure to come and the former a possi bility at nnv hour. When you think or insurance or whatsoever nature fire and tornado, life and live stock you should think of Ed C. Gaines, the old est insurance man in Garrard county, and the only one writing all kinds of insurance exclusively, and not us aside line. Mr. Gaines has been a resident of Lancaster for the past nineteen years, and has insured more lives., pos sibly, than all the other insurance agents combined. His list of insurance companies embrace the oldest and best in the country, among the number might be mentioned the Penn. Mutual, with seventy years or successful und fauliful business to its credit. Others have a record for prompt settlement that make them the favorite with astute business men who make a thorough investigation before taking an insurance policy. Mr. Gaines' record is one to be envied by many of his competitors, for the citizens of this und the adjoining counties have found that they could depend implicitly upon his representa tions, and inasmuch as he has been able to affect settlements between his com panies and clients without having to resort to legal process, is sufficient proof that the companies lie represents are dependable und solvent; in funt. It may be said or them that there ore "Nono Better and Few as Good". Mr Gaines is one or the most aggressive citizens or Lancaster; lie is n man who has made good with Ins companies as well as his clients. His word and deal ings can be depended on und thos. who are not carrying insurance on their lives, property or stock bliould obey ihu precept, "be prepared", by having .Mr. Gaines write them insurance. Every man should be insured; it is his duty. and no right-thinking business man will go through this world without provid ing arter death tor those who are de pendent upon him Insurance and Gaines are synonymous words it will be your gain to see Gaines, whose office is corner public squaro nnd Lexington street.
