MeRoberts Drug Store KNOW AMERICANS. DON'T German papers are gloating over the inking of tho Tuscania, expressing the conviction that lb Ii.oident "must unfailingly dampen the splrita of Americana." If evidence were wanted that Ger many Is lamentably Ignorant ut Ameri can charactsr the above is sufficient. Americans are the last race on earth to be civen to crying over spilt mint, l'robably no natluu in history has grown to commanding Influence in the world over greater opposition than has the United States. Opposition is the bread of life to our people, and your red blooded American has mild contempt for any occupation that containa none of the element of danger or chance. If proof were wanted to refute the insinuation of the Teutons that we would blanch at the dangers from their pubmarlnet, It is found in the fact that beforo the ink wua hardly dry on the papers in this country giving the news of the sinking of the Tuscania, enlist menta In all branches had lumped to records never reached before. Thou ands are Hocking to every branch of tho service, many with the avowed purpose of avenging the heroes ao shamelessly butchered. Germany is due for a very rude awakening as to the real American character. She is duo to discover that our aversion to war does not cover a craven heart, but ari.es rather from a national sense of justice and right. She is also due to learn that when that sense of justice and right has been flagrantly abused and insulted, there is no hesita tion on our part to resort to the weap ons of force so dear to the German heart. Germany, however, is merely whist ling to keep up her courage, she sees her doom when our troops reach Europe in force. A cbleago lecturer says that bow legs are not so common as they appear. Pidn t know anyone had such poor taste as to fake how legs. Austria tired of war! Well, it isn't the first time in history thUt an in dividual or a nation has started some thing that they couldn't stop. German -authorities are said to be suspicious of Trotsky's actions. It was a noted politician who remarked I) n a man that wont stay bought." Any fool may criticize, but critirism is not a remedy; that requires con structive ability. So unless you possess thie, better hold your tongue and saw wood. In deciding on a renewed German of fensive, perhaps Hindenburg concluded l'etrograd would be a more suitable place than I'aris for that April fool dinner. Safe gunrd the health of your family by using Kiln Dried Corn Meal. Hudson, Hughes & Farnau. Germans are said to be wearing clothes made of paper. The kaiser should be able to furnish them some raw material if they can utilize scraps." Figuring it right down to the last analysis, it'a un to the people of this country to decide which they love most. their boys or their-stomachs. One or the other must be denied. Which? If the critics would spend the same amount of energy in the effort to pre vent the Government making mistakes that they spend In denunciation, the per cent of errors would be much mailer. Prof. E. A. Host, of the University of Wisconsin, who is just back from Itussla, savs the Dolslmviklknow where thev are going. Which is probably true as the read to Germany is no doubt plain enough. The farmer who in these times would feed whest to hogs, is an altogether new specimen of animal that we have not et classified. Of all the utterly incomprehensible beings that this war has brought to pdillc notice, he Is easily the limit. If not a vowed friend of the kaiser, he must be simply an animal in the form of a man, with a gizzard where there should be u heart. OVERLAND AGENT. Mr. Roger Aldridge informs us that he has just closed a contract for the agency of the Overland automobile and in a few days will be able to demon strate the good qualities of this popu lar car to some of the good people of this county, Roger is a splendid young man and we wish him much success in the sste of the machine that has many admirers here and elsewhere. TEACHERS MONEY LATER. In reply to a letter of Miss Jennie Hig gins, asking when the salary's of the teachers for the sixth and seventh month services will bj paid, the De portment of Education at Frankfort, replied that it could not tell just when such salarya will be paid, but thought the first of them would be paid In two or three weeks. It also intimated that it might be the end of the school year before the full amount ts paid. AUTO TRUCK BURNS. While trying to thaw out a trozen pipe on the auto truck of J. F. Hottz claw Son at the Ford Garage last Thursday afternoon, with a gasoline torch the gasoline was ignited and for a few moments it looked as if a ser ious fire could not be averted. Dut the presence of mind of the mechanical force in pushing the truck, then in flames, to the street, no serious dam age was done, except to the truck which was practically destroyed. COURT DAY CROWD LARGE. County Court Day brought a good sized crowd to town last Monday and there was some trading on the streets. especially in the mule line, although there were very few choice mules offer ed for sale. There were a few sheep on the mar ket, but practically no cattle, the lat ter being rather scarce at this time. J. t.. Itobinson sold two mules, one to Dr. Dawes, for $175 and one to J, M. Craig for $130; Wes Itourne sold a nice mule to Ed Clark for $250: N. W. Itogers bought a team of W. G. Gooch for $150 and one of M. D. Long, for $150; Center lirothers of Paint Lick, sold one to John Winn, for $190. one to Wllsou Ilrandenburg for $260 and n team to Hen llright for $140; Gene Iiuble bought a team of John Kava naugh for $J40; W, T. Wllmore bought several head of horses during the day at prices ranging from $100 to $135. EXPLOSIVE LICEN SING AGENT. Mr. Horace Herndon has just re ceived his appointment from the De partment of Interior, as Licensing Ex plosive Agent for Lancaster and Gar rard county. While the duties of the Licensing Agent are not very clear to us, we are safe in saying that all per sons who deal in Dynamite, Dynamite Caps. Ulssting Powder and other such explosive material, arc required to se- HEADQUARTERS FOR American.Fence ORIGINAL ANDGENUINE Wire Fence, Vulcan Plows Collars, Britchen, Hames.

The mere fact he has policy holders from California to JNew York, Florida to Alaska, on the Atlantic and "some where" in France, is evident that he goes anywhere for business. Courtesy, efficiency, promptness in adjustments, makes him contented customers. GARRARD'S LIVE STOCK INDUSTRY ENORMOUS. In making out the incami tax list tor the year 1917, some of our leading busi nesa men of the county are developing some interesting figures and bringa to the eurface some of Garrard county's live stock products. Mr. V. A. Lear, probably one of the largest live stock dealers In the county, handed us the following figures which makes inter HiaVooks sow that In the year 1917, Agricnlinral Station ySends Oat Witninf he purchased In Garrard county 7,655.

Reports are continually coming in re garding the violations of the Food Ad ministration's edict against hoarding. County Food Administrator Dr. W. M. Elliott has: given the Record the following statement about the matter: "Information has been received by the County Food Administrator that many merchants are not observing the food regulation directing that no mer chant shall sell to any town person, ex ceeding five pounds of sugar at a time or to an country customer more than ten pounds. "Merchants have had plenty of time to familiarize themselves with this regu lation and if the violation continues, the Food Administrator will be com pelled to take drastic action to com pel observance on tbe part of those who will not voluntarily do so.

Elliott, County Food Administrator. - SEEDX0RN MUST BE TESTED. cure a license and these are the duties year he bought 2,462 lambs, costing Rogers, has received an Important of Mr. Herndon to issue. The penalty is a heavy fine for dealing in these ex plosives without auch license and It de volves upon all such dealers to see Mr. Herndon at once. MULE KICK Proves Fatal To Mack Lamb. Mr. Mack Lamb, who lived near Ileitis' store in this county, died at Dr. Acton's hospital this morning, from being kicked by a mule last Tues day afternoon. He had just gotten a pair of young mules from Mr. Jess Sweeney and had driven one to a wagon and while attempting to unhitch the breast chain, the mule suddenly turned and kicked, striking Mr. Lamb in the stomach. Suffering intensely, a phy sician whs called and an operation was decided on to save his life. It was $21,871.00. and 725 head of cattle that bulletin from the College drew on his banjc account the sum of $49,525.00. This brings the total pur chase of Mr. Lear during the year, for hogs, lambs and cattle, a total of $269,085, or several thousand dollars over the quarter of a million dollar mark. INCOME TAX LAW EXPLAINED. of Agricul ture in reference to seed corn, which is presenting such a problem to the farmers all" over the country. The bulletin says In part: Only the earliest gathered corn is fit for seed. Most of the corn that was In the field during the zero weather of December, or corn gath ered before that date, is worthless for seed. The Experiment Station has tested such corn from different coun ties of the State, and the result is the same in all cases not more than ten to twenty per cent of it will grow.

The meeting for last Tues day night was called off becausa of it conflicting with other meetings which required the presence of many of our Chautauqua boosters. The meeting it to be held In the parlor of the Womsns Club Room. last night, but from the atart little hope was entertained that he would re cover. He was conscious up to ten minutes of his death and made his will yesterday afternoon, when he was told he had a slight chance to get well. Mr. Lamb waa a good man and his tragic death was n tad one indeed. He waa a member of the Holiness church and took an active interest in it. The burial will take place tome time Fri day. He Is turvived by his wife and five children. Mr. Lamb was 41 years oij: TO THE PUBLIC. Duiing the past year we find that we cannot meet our expenses 'and work for the tame old price. We wish to thank the people of Lancaster and Gar rard Ccunt, for their patronage of the patt year, but w-j will be compelled to charge 40c per hour after March lit, Signed by mechanics of Lancaster and Garrard County, money to win a war. Mr. Spalding was the principal speak er and proved conclusively that he waa well versed on the Income tax law, and made It very clear to his audience, giv ing three divisions that should be most interested business men, professional! men and farmers. Many took advan tage of his invitation to ask any ques tions which were not clear to them and they were answered in every detail. Judge Hughes informs ut that Gar rard county is coming up nobly with her prorata of the income tax and to busy has his deputy, Mr. II. S. Hahn, been since he came into the county two weeks ago, he has consented to let him remain here until next Saturday, Mr. Hahn has made many friends tince he came among us and hat looked well after the Interests of tho govern- ment, betide h.lplng and answering many questions that have been put to him by tbe taxpayets, all of whom we are sure are grateful to him for this assistance. Don't depend upon buying teed. Little good teed ran be bought, for tho conditions are similar all over the country &nd are worse in tho northern states. The small stock of good seed corn in the hands of seed growers and dealers will be exhausted very quick. ly. Don't buy seed corn at all unlets the germinatlan it guaranteed. If you have teed corn tave it all for teed. If you havo new corn that Is fit for teed, sure it all. The State and country need it. Don't neglect to nick out and test the corn at toon as possible. CARD OF THANKS. W desire to express our sincere tbankt to our friends and neighbors for their help and exprettlont of sym pathy, during the illness and death of our husband and father. Especially we wish to thank those who assisted In the singing at the burial services. Mrs. Cheatham and children.
