A woman does not waste timeor money on restoratives she goes and buys more hair. FORGOT WHO HE IS PRETENDING TO SUPPORT The Colon. I did not mention Hughes but once in his Louisville speech and then very ci sually. The fact is Teddy is no more for Hughes than many that will vote for Wilson. He is just work ing oir his surplus bile and using lan guage fit only for tne guttereens. Two objects animate him, hatred of Wilson and a desire to keep in the limelight till l'J20. PAPER FAMINE SILVER TEA. SEEMS CERTAIN. That news paper will get as high as the proverbial "cow that jumped over the moon" and the worst of it there is a probability of not being able to get it at all, is indeea alarming. Our local news dealer here, Mr. Ii. E. McHoborts, in ordering some extra Sunday papers from the Cincinnati Enquirer, received the following significant reply; "Wo cannot increase your Sunday orders, due to a shortage in white paper. We are unable to get sufficient paper to get out our orders at the present time."

The Cincinnati Enquirer's straw vote , puts Ohio largely for Wilson. A Cin cinnati Congressman in Louisville a few days ago said that the Democrats would ( carry it by 150,000. It would not sur- prise, tv is wie sihiu ui uig majorities and when the goes a 'catin she goes a ' cattln. FREE LECTURE Dr. Ganfield, a most delightful and. entertaining spesker will lecture at the! Court House tomorrow (Friday) night. No admission, and every one should avail themselves of the opportunity of hearing something worthwhile. He lecture) to crowded houses every- ( where he goes and Is much sought after both as a lecturer and after dinner speaker and we feel Lancastrans will do themselves proud by turning out en-1 masses hear him. I PERIL IN A CHANGE OF PARTIES. A change of parties in the govern ment at this time would put every in terest in peril und leave us without standing with the Imperial German government. The defeat of Wilson would be regarded by the Kaiser ns n victory for him and n. reversal of the policy which forced him to desis't from his cowardly submarine warfare again st defenceless neutrals, who exercise their right to travel on the high seas. He would feel Bt Liberty to renew that warfare and would doubtless promptly renew it. Fortunately, however, no such a contingency seems possible. The American people are not beieft of reason and will take no such dangerous chance. They have already decided to keep Wilson on guard for four years more to continue to give the country peace, prosperity and happiness. PLAYING BOTHlNDS AGAINST THE MIDDLE. Hero wv have Candidate Hughes placating and playing hard for the German-American vote and Roosevelt "skinning 'em alive" to get the anti German vote for Hughes. We see Candidate Hughes and his chairman, Wilcox, condemning the child labor law ns u fraud and a hoax and a joker, and Senator Cummins and Ex-Senator lleveridgo praising it; Sen ator Cummins baying that "anyone who denounces It is either Ignorant or In competent. Here is Candidate Hughes opposing and criticising the Adamsaii eight-hour law, and seventy Republican Congress, men who voted for it running for re election on their records, and the twenty-eight Republican senators who al lowed the bill to pass when they could have easily defeated It. We have innumerable Republican speakers, fiom Candidate Hughes down, saying that our prosperity is "fictitious", "merely temporary", or "consisting wholly of war munitions", and on the other hand every bank and railroad and big business house making reports showing business in the most prosperous condition, and the stocks on the market all going up. "It is to laugh". ENGINEER KAY HERE ON JOURNEY NORTH. Has Been To Lancaster To Advise Re garding Their VYaler Snpply. Engineer Edgar H. Kay, who investi gated tho local water question for the city nnd who is now engaged on a big job at Cclinn Ohio, passed thru Win chester yesterday on his way from Lan caster. Ho had been called to the Garranl county capital on an Impartant matter of water supply for that city. Mr. Kay said while here that Lancas ter is having reservoir trouble similar to that in Winchester. It would cost thousands of dollars to line the reser voir tl.ere and he has advied that city to go to the river for its water supply, just ns he advised Winchester to go to the river. Mr. Kuy was pleased to find local sentiment s- overwhelmingly for a city plant and river Water and again stated that it is nothing short of criminal to permit the use of such water as we nre now getting evry summer. Winches ter Democrat. POLITICAL SPEECHES For Both Parlies Receive Enthusiastic Applause Here Last Monday. With tho Hon. Lawrence It. Finn, of Franklin and Aubrey F. Adkins, of Covington, booked to make Democratic speeches at the court house last Mon day and Ex Governor Osborne, of Mich igan, billed to speak at the Hex Theater in the interest of the Republican party, the town was practically filled with ad herents of each political faith and that resulted in both houses leing well filled. Mr. Finn spoke for one hour and held the attention of the crowd during the entire time and was liberally applauded often during his masterful adJress. He was followed by Mr. Adkins, after be ing introduced by Hon. II. Clay Kauff man in a very happy and inimitable way. Mr. Adkins is a fluent speaker and was popularly received being re peatedly interrupted by applause when he spoke of the Wilson Administration, whicli he is now so ardently espousing, being until recently, one of the leading Progressives of the state and a dele-gate-at-large to the National Progres sive Convention, in Chicago last June. He spoke to a good crowd at Bryants ville Monday night and to a crowded house at Paint Lick Tuesday night. Governor Osborne failed to put in his appearance, having missed connection at Cincinnati, and this was quite a dis appointment to the large orowd that had assembled at the Rex theater. However, Hon. Robert E. Woods of Louisville and former postmaster of that city, happened to be in the city and he was immediately drafted and made a speech that was heartily re ceived and frequently applauded. Mr. S. II. Kash of Corbin, spoke to a small mdience last Friday afternoon at the court house. He made a strong appeal to the negroes for their vote and his remarks seemed to charm and delight them to the utmost. BIG CROWD HERE MONDAY Much Trading And Some Politics. Another big crowd was drawn to Lan caster last Monday, it being the regular county court day and trading was brisk in the mule lin-. while a few horses and cattle crnmged hands at fairly satis factory prices. Mules were in brisk demand and many from colts to aged animals were sold at good prices. Some of the sales were as follows; W. V.
