Yes thjspretty little spot is claimed by all of us now, and we forget the cold water throwers who said, dogs would lie in it and cat tle run thru it and boys play in it and eat water melon in it. No one has so little civic pride as to desecrate it in any way and all are proud of it Mr. John Stormes Is Custodian of the Park, seeing that the flowers are watered and taken care of, the crass cut and for which we all owe him a vote of thanks. Every 'stranger who comes thru town remarks upon its beauty, which is truly the bright snot in our humdrum life thece torrid days. CALL BY NUMBERS.

For some time before the expiration of the time limit fixed for filing peti tions to become a candidate before the primary, a number of representative citizens of our county urged me to be come a candidate on the Republican ticket for the office of County Judge. At first it seemed to me that I could not afford to enter the race, as I am no politician and do not feel that I de sire to become one, but after watching the trend of political events in our County, and with absolutely no desire for any personal gain whatever, I de cided to enter the race, in order that if elected I may be of some service in giving to our county as best I know how, a strictly business administration. Realizing the grave responsibility that this office holds for any man who fills it, and knowing that the citizens of our county are deeply interested therein, I will briefly state the position I take on some of the questions that I believe are of the most interest to our people ti.day. As I believe the subject of road main tcnance and improvement is the most important question that confronts our fiscal court at the present time, and be lievinc that if the administration of our road system is used as a political asset, no real improvement can ever be effected. Therefore, I pledge you that if I am elected your County Judge, the entire road system of our County, will be taken entirely out of politics, and that every dollar appropriated for th purpose, will go for the actual work of upbuilding our roads, and not into th pockets of protessional politicians, and vote getters, in the various precincts of our county. That all contracts for work on our roads shall be let with wide open doors, or better still Defor the Court House door, that the public may know exact ly haw their business is handled. That every contract shall be let to the lowest bidder, regardless of who he may be, or to what party he may belong, said bidders to give sufficient bond to secure the performance of their contract, and a competent road Supervisor will see that all work is done according to specifications, and both, roads and Supervisor will bu un der the strict supervision of your Fis cal Court. Should I be elected, politics will play no part in any judicial act of your County Judge, for it Beems to me that during this serious period through which we are passing all partizanship slioulii bo laid aside und only efficiency, and economy, in the conduct of our public affairs should be our aim. If elected I will do all in my power to reduce the indebtedness of our County, und also to avoid the Incum brance of any other debts. At this tune when the people uro demunding, und rightly so, as I believe, that w have temperance men to fill the various offices of our county, 1 only ask you to look to ray past life as an index of what you may expect of the future. It is needless for me to state that I favor County, State, and Nation-wide prohibition, und at ull times will use every Influence In my power in secur ing same, and In enforcing any such lawa that may be pasted. Will ulso promise yuu that If elected, no liquor known to me will ever enter my ofllce. I expect to mako a clean, straight fight for this election, and if the poli cies outlined here meet with your up proyal, nq matter to which party you may belong, your support Is earnestly solicited, ant will be deeply appreciated. FOREST STAPP. A PATRIOTIC MOTHER. This war Is "Gojl's laundry" Mrs. Mary J. Lamb, ot Chicago, who has given three of her four sons to the nrmy nnd navy, said In n letter which was before n Chicage exemption board recently. "I asked for a special permit for my sixteen-year-old son who was in college and enlisted him ill the marine corps on April 1," wrote Mrs. Lamb. "Another son is also in tho marine corps and a third in the army. "A fourth son's greatest sorrow is that ho is too young, and only n quar termaster in tho Scaroh cadets of Notre Dame University, "It makes me disgusted with woman hood to hear so many selfish mothers voice their tenors. No mother loves her family more than I do, but I look upon this war ns God's laundry." POLLARD. FOR SALE:-Thorough bred Poland china gilt. Will sell cheap. Call at this office. On Friday morning at eight o'clock, at the home of his sister, Mrs. Joe Kelley, In Danville, the kind and loving spirit of Robert Bright Pollanl passed from this earthly home to that beautl ful realm of peace and happiness. He was operated on about two weeks ago, nt the Danville Hospital for a complication of diseases with the hope of his ultimate recovery, but all that medical skill and loving relatives could do was of no nvail. Robert was one of the best young men in the Hubble neighboihood, of good christian character, industrious and popular with whom he was thrown. He was eighteen years old at the time of his death, and while it is hard to sec a young man taken in the prime of his life yet we know his loved ones loss is his eternal gain. He is survived by his parents Mr. and Mrs. H. C. Pollard, together with five sisters and two brothers to whom deep and sincere sympathy goes out in this hour of trial. His sisters arc; Mrs. J. D. Hatcher and Mrs. Lon Bourne of Lancaster. Mrs. Joe Kelley of Danville, and Misses Agnes and Alice Pollard of Hubble, the two broth ers are Messrs F,rank and Jim Pollard of Hubble. Interment took place in the Lancas ter cemetery Sunday afternoon. CANNING ACTIVITIES. The work of canning fruits and vege tables goes on throughout the State apparently without cessation. The two weeks canning campaign, conducted at the Western Ftato Normal School in Bowling G teen the past month, was highly successful, and members ot the classes are now extending tho in struction in communities. A most successful period of canning, covering two weeks, was held at the State Normal School at Richmond Ky also under direction of Miss Davis, dur ing the first part of July. This was followed by a week of classes in drying and "evaporating" fruits and vegeta bles, and the "community canning" work was inaugurated, to continue throughout the remainder of the sum mcr. The community canning activi' ties are conducted thus; Any house, holder with an excess of fruit or veg. etables is invited to bring the products to the Normal School, and they will be canned on the shurcs. the householder furnishing only the containers. The supply of canned goods secured by the school will be stored away to provide the dormitories next winter. About 125 student of the jummvr school were enrolled in the canning classed at Richmond. The Normal School garden coverf five acres, and is maintained by the agricultural department of th school. Tho school at Berea, which has an enrollment of 1,300 boarding pupils, ex pects to can 20,000 gallons of fruit und vegetables this season. One building is ilovoted entirely to canning, and a canner", which has a capacity of 150 gallons u day, will be secured tt very low prices, and the canning will bo done there and the fruit conveyed back to Berea. A WORD FOR 'HELLO' GIRLS I sat in the the central ollicu of a telephone company and watched the operators ut their work. I heir eyes wero fixed on the board noting the numbers as the calls came, while their fingers flew in making the connections. At times one would be behind in keep ing up with the calls but not a second was lost in effort to reach the waiting one. I said to myself: "Never more will I get impatient when central docs not answer promptly. She may be racing as fast as her fingers can carry her to my call." We go to the doctor and wait our turn, go to the theatre window, bar ber shop or voting booth; but if central does not answer in five seconds we want to know if she's asleep or reading a book. Let us remember, "there are others" and wait our turn. The continued beat ing of bells on ths ear drum is hard on the nerves. Be more patient and pleas ant at the 'phone If you would bo just to the telephone girl. Geo W. Bain. 2t Crimson Clover, Timothy seed, Buck Wheat. Hudson, Hughe & Farnau, SERIOUSLY.
