HARVEY HELM.ot STANFORD, KY We are authorized to announce Miss Jennie Higgins a candidate for County School Superintendent of Garrard County, subject to the action of the Democratic primary August 1917. We are authorized to announce J. 0. Bogie, as a candidate for the Deraoc ratic nomination for County Court Clerk, primary to be held August 1917, we are authorized to announce Jeptha Onstott a candidate for the democratic nomination for County Court Clerk, subject to the action of the pri mary, August 1917. We are authorized to announce E. U, Ray as a candidate for the Democratic nomination for Assessor of Garrard county, subject to the action of the Primary, August, 1917. With the November Term of theGar rard Circuit Court not a month off there are only ten appearance suits on the civil docket. Out of so many trans actions incidental to the business of an active community like Garrard county to have only ten law suits would indi cate an unusually healthy financial con dition as well as a high sense of busi ness obligation among the people. Rut the astonishing thing about the ten suits is that eight are for divorce and seven out of the eight the plaintiff is the wife seeking a dissolution of the marriage contract and asking for alii mony. This is quite a striking evidence that while general business contracts are being satisfactorily carried out be tween the contracting public the marriage contract is a subject of grow ing litigation. Of course the relative numuer oi uivorce suits are greater in this instance than usual but an in spection of the courts docket here and elsewhere will show a constantly in crease ratio in favor of divorce suits. The divorce is a menace to society, and public sentiment should not permit the marriage contract to be treated lightly. Dissolution of the marringe bonds should not be disolved for light and trivial matters. Separation be tween husband and wife should not be countenanced by the courts save for good and sufficient legal reasons and public sentiment should hold to a strict maintainance of this rule. Formerly neither the husband nor wife could testify in actions of divorce, but in 1912 the Legislature of this state rnaije what appeared a( that iint to be a very just amendment to the law of evidence allowing both tin husband and wife to give their respective sides of the nuptial grievance in court which we observe has been an encouragement to divorce suits. The courts can dis courage divorces and the many and growing applications, by being rigid in the requirement of proof. The increase in divorce suits is a matter of public concern.

A new method of tox hunting was discovered by Roy Wilhelm, a Danville chauffeur, on his way to Danville from Lexington a few nights ago. Mr. Wilhelm was driving his car at good speed near Brooklyn Bridge when a big red fox jumped out of the under brush, almost in frcnt of the au tomobile. The animal was bewildered by the dazzling lights of the machine and attempted to keep out of danger by running up the road, making no effort to get back into the sbelterof the road side, and in a moment the speedy ear had run over him. Mr. Wilhelm took the trophy of his chase to Danville and plana to have it mounted. Danville Messenger. NO ILLITERATES IN TWELVE COUNTIES Twelve counties are free of illiteracy, according to Mrs. Cora Wilson Stewart, who attended the teachers' convention, She said: "forty thousand adults have been taught to read and write in the two and one-half years we have been work ing, anu we pian to teach 25,000 more in the next year. Leslie will be one of the counties to be free of illiteracy anoiner year, anu that county. In pro portion to Its population, is the most illiterate county in the state. A thou sand people are being taught there this year." Aunty Toxin Bf F. A. MITCH EL The people should finance their own politiclal campaigns. With the interest that the democrats of Garrard county have in the reelection of President Wil son, we feel that there are many who would like to contribute something to the legitimate expenses of this cam paign. Let every democrat who feels able and inclined participate. A few dollars from jou may play an important part in maintaining peace and prosper ity in this country for next four years. Make your contribution to the Chair man, R. L. Elkln at your earliest con-venience. Let every Democrat go to the polls and constitute himself a committee of one to sen that the careless or overcon fident do likewise. Kentucky is a Dem ocratic State and will remain so, If every Democrat does his duty. SOME TOBACCO SHOW To Be Held la Bale Grass Capital Latter part of November Of general interest to tobacco grow ers is the announcement that there will be held in Lexington. Ky pn November 23, 24 and 25 the Lexington Burley Tobacco Show, at which growers from all parts of the district will be invited to complete for prizes ranging up to one hundred dollars and aggregating one thousand dollars. Never before has a tobacco Bhow of such proportions been held. As a rule tobacco shows are a sub-issue combined wite exhibits of farm products and the tobacco comes in for hut little consider ation. Differing widely from the usual practice this show to be held at Lex ington is for tobacco alone, and the amount of money to be distributed in prizes makes its success assured. Aside from this it has the backing of the Kentucky Agricultural Experiment Station, the Lexington Board of Com merce, the Lexington Rotary Club, the Lexington Tobacco Board of Trade and the prominent men of the Blue Grass section. The show Is for bona fide produces only, and none other will be allowed to complete, and all samples must be of the 191G crop. In addition to the ex- hibits of fine tobacco it is planned to make this a gigantic three days con- ention of tobacco growers to discuss improved methods of producing, curing and marketing the crop. Men of national prominence in the various branches have been invited to attend this gathering and lead the discussions. Numerous features of entertainment I have been planned, and it is the desire of the promoters to give the producer an opportunity to see a part at least of the process through which the tobacco has to go, before becoming the finished product. in oraer tnat all may he on an equal luuiuiK mm iu avoiu loo great compe tition the uurley belt has been divided into eight districts as follows: District No. 1, rayettecounty;No.2.
