We are authorized to announce J, O. Bogie, as a candidate for the Democ ratic nomination for County Court Clerk, "primary to be held August 1917.

The election or rather the re-election of,Woodrow Wilson means a wonderful , victory and a splendid endorsement of the achievements he has accomplished through the agricultural states 'of the union. The agricultural states of the West which have hitherto been strong ly" Republican are showing phenominal gains and the votes that have rolled up for Wilson is nothing short of miracu lous. The West and South have over thrown the East and the people have conquered notwithstanding the great influence of Tammany as- u power in national politics and the malefactors of great wealth in the east. That we have elected a President without the votes of New York, Illinois, Indiana, establishes a record that many thought could never be done and one that will go down in history and live as a mem oriel to our honored President. FOOT BALL. LANCASTER TEAM TRIUMPHS STANFORD. OYER Before a good sized crowd of people the Lancaster High School second team demonstrated some of its classical foot ball by defeating the Stanford seconds Saturday. The burst of not-to-be de nied playing brought the locals out on the optimistic end of a 37 to 0 count, in a game that was not without honor to either side, The teams were about evenly matched and it was a hard earn ed victory. At 3:10 o'clock, with silence reigning over the field, Kinnaird kicked tn Stan ford's 15 yard line, Stanford's center caught the ball, making a run of 15 yards before stopped. The local boys held the Kildees to within 40 yard of Lancaster's goal. Then the ball chanc ed sides. The Lancaster boys began a march down the field, which resulted in a touch-down made by Zanone. They decided to punt it out and kicked olT again to Stanford. The Lancaster boys again held Stanford, the bal1 changing sides and Lancaster scoring another touchdown. The first half of the game was plaved without an intermission. The second half of the game was very much like the first, in that it was a walk-away for Lancaster. Great gains were made by tho bucking of Lancaster's excellnnt full back, J, V. Cook. Other gains were made by Za none, Amon and Kinnaird and by for ward passes to Miller. The one thing that helped to win the game for Lan caster was its interference; the Stan ford team could not break it up. It was an exceedingly clean game, devoid of all foul play and enjoyed by all. Lancaster is expecting to give Stanford a return game soon. Everybody come out to the games and give the boys en couragement Genuine Kanawha salt will not harden in the barrel Hudson, Hughes & Farnau Lime, sand, cement, rock screenings. salt, brick, etc. Hudson, Hughes A Farnau.

Kelly and Sons, of this county, has established a reputation over the tobacco growing states uf this country, that is destined to make these growers famous throughout the entire country. They are never satisfied with past results, for this year it is claimed by persons who have seen this year's crop of seed and tobacco, that all for mer years wjll be eclipsed and a record will be established that will make other growers sit up and take notice Beside growing the finest iUality of tobacco produced in this county, they are selling and will sell this year over two thousand ounces of their prize seed that will reproduce itself if properly handled, as will be seen by the follow ing which we quote from a letter just received from Lvan S. uses, of Spring field, Ky., who was Superintendedt in charge of the tobacco exhibit, which says: "The seed I received from you was the finest I ever saw and the farm ers who planted them have fine crops. "Perhaps you do not know it, but your tobacco took 3-fl rat, one-second, two-third and the sweepstake prizes at the State Fair this year." We have always contended that Gar rard county can raise and does raite the best and finest quality of tobacco grown in the state and the record that Messrs B. L. Kelly and Sons have made has proven the fact beyond question. A TRIBUTE. In Loring Memory of Miss Ida M. Grant j Without a rustle to warn any one of .her going, Miss Ida May Grant quietly .i.i. ...... . ..... . ...i .m biuiu unajr iiviii cm. my isico nuvj cm barked on her journey into the Great Beyond at an early hour Thursday morning November 2nd. She had been 111 for some weeks, and the end was not unexpected, but so quietly did the jewel take Its flight from the casket that she seemed to only be sleeping. What peaceful ending to a beautiful life) So peaceful was her death and so calm and beautiful did she lie that we could not but think her own words, her description of death was prophetic of her own passing away; "She lies so still, that the Angel of Death, Must have bidden her hold her breath. Must have bidden her hearken and hear The mystery of mysteries the secret dear: The meaning of life and its ultimate goal. The rare felicity of the soul. She heard and hearkened, and held her breath In ecstacy and that was death." With her lamp filled with the oil of religion, trimmed and burning brightly, she arose to meet Him and with her her hand in the hand of Him whom she had so long trusted she walked thru the "dark valley of the shadow of death" without fear or trembling. Miss Ida May was the oldest and dearly beloved daughter of Dr. J. W. Grant and Emma Price Graham. She was one of Lancaster's gifted daugh ters. writing from her school-girl days to almost the time of her death, her facile pen erecting, as it were, monu ments which will stand to her memory in the years to rome. Had she not been of such a retiring disposition, and had her gentle spirit been cast in a stronger mould she would have taken high rank among Kentucky poets. The scholarly quality of all her poetry was one of her distinguishing characteristics. Imbued with profouud love of her fellowman and nature, the simplicity of the Mas ter, a well stored mind, a real inspira tion all these and more belonged to this gifted daughter of Lancaster, stricken before her race was fully run. Last summer she went to Virginia to visit an aunt and to CraigHealingSprings she was taken, her family hoping her health would be restored, but change of climate, medical skill and the most careful nursing were of no avail, she came home trailer and nearer the end of life's journey than when she left. While those who loved her cannot but mourn her loss, it is sweet to think of her as reunited with the mother and sister who were so recently taken from her, and to think of them where part ing cannot mar their happiness and where, at last, they have found "the peace which remaineth". The fur.eral services were conducted at her late home Saturday morning at 10 d'clock by Elder F. M. Tinder and Rev. II. S. Hudson, and on this beau tiful Fall day when all nature rests and renews her youth in the dew of sleep this child of God was laid to rest by mother, father and sisters who had gone before. Profound sympathy is felt for the lonely sister, Miss Lily Grant, and the only brother, H. M. Grant, of Norfolk, Va. The news of her death has brought back tender memories of the school girl and girl older grown and many requests for her poems have come to us. A great deal she has written will be found stowed away in old scrap books, pasted in painstakingly and lovingly by admiring friends and read ers, many of whom have preceded her "out ol the hitherwhere into the yon". Peace be with her. She was an apostle of sunshine yea more, she had all those graces of mind and all the force and nbility that makes womanhood ad mirable. Her death is a loss to the community. From among her published poems it is not difficult to find exquisite little gems that prove rich gifts and the quality of her power, but it seems to the writer that no c.ie single song tells the story more sweetly of her "wings unfolding, bearing her thru the Golden Gate" than the one printed in Popular Hymns, often sung by the voices she so dearly loved, which is entitled; THE SOULS LONGING. Weary soul in mortal vesture, What is thy unceasing quest. Why art thou forever longing, Why wilt thou not be at rest? Askest thou my anxious spirit. Where is thy eternal homcj Where are built the many mansions, Where shalt thou forever roam? Searchest thou the silent Heavens, For an unswr to thy pray'r? Asking where abides the Savior And the joys that thou shalt share. Where doth rise the walla of Jasper, Rising by the stream of life, Where is built the unseen city. Knowing neither sin nor strife? Patient, still, my captive spirit, Question not, thou needs but wail Patient, till thy wings unfolding Bear thee thiu the Golden Gate. $40,000,000 PAID FOR HORSES.

LIFE IS TOO SHORT. Life is too short for any vain regretting. Let dead delight bury its dead I say, And let us go upon our way forgettinp, The joys and Borrows of each yester day. Between the swift sun's rising and its setting We have no time for useless tears or fretting. Life is too short. Life is too short for any bitter feeling Time is the best avenger if we wait, The years speed by and on their wings bear healing. We have no room for anything like hate, The solemn truth the low mounds seem revealing That thick and fast about our feet are stealing. JtLife is too short. Life is too short for aught but high endeavor-Too short for spite, but long enough for love. And love lives on forever and forever. It links the worlds that circle on above 'Tis God's first law, the universe's lever In His vast realm the radiant souls sigh nevar. Life is too short. Selected. SALE OF GOOD MULES. Mr. V. A.
