Professor Keith was brought here under the auspices of the Liberty Service League, and was the first lec ture held since this organization. The court house was comfortably filled and the audience was a responsive and enthusiastic one. The title of the address was Amer ica and the War' Many times during his patriotic talk, he was interrupted by the unanimous applause of the audience. It was a masterly address and well receied. Speakers of National note h'ive been engaged by the Liberty Service League announcement of the date will be given through the Itecord later. SIMPSON ACQUITTED. The case of James Simpson, charged with "treasonable utterances" against the United States Government, whose examining trial was held in Danville last Monday morning before United Statet Commissioner Lawill, resulted in acquittal. Three witnesses were examined by the government, being John Morria, Uascom Ford and Mr. W. N, Grow. Mr. Morris testified that Mr. Simp son stated in his presence that Presi dent Wilson should be carried nut into the sen rr.d drowned. This conlersa tion took place after the draft law went into elfect and in the presence uf Haacom Ford.

Deputy Revenue Collector, B. S. Hahn, of Lawrenceburg, started to work here last Friday upon the income tax question and has been kept on the jump ever since, answering the many! questions that are put to him by var ious people of the county.

County Agent Rogers Is untiring in his energy to assist the growers of the fibre in Garrard county to get a sub stantial price for their hemp and the marketing of a majority of the crop direct to the eastern buyer, seems a plausible Idea and should have the backing of the growers.
