"Breathes there a mtn with soul so
dead, who never to himself hath said
This is my own Park". 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.

Sunday morning the farewell sermon
of Dr. B. A. Dawes who has completed
ten vears as pastor of tho Baptist

TO THE CITIZENS OF
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
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
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
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.

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
Interment took place in the Lancas
ter cemetery Sunday afternoon.
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
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
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
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
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
