Botanlat In ehartn. of Fibre Investigations of the ITm'il States Government, has issued the fol lowing statement: "As a matter of pa triotism, in winning the war. a auHlei. ent crop of hemp seems to be quite as necessary as the production of corn or other food products. American hemp a now used for thread for shoes, har ness and other equipments used in the armj as well as for cordage for the ships and tie tow is used for i-anlklnir vessels and its use is almost certain to increase instead of flax, jute and oilier imported fibres." AMERICAN AND GERMAN EFFICIENCY The searchlight of war has brought PAINT LICK CASE AFFIRMED. L & N. bridge Caused High Water Damage Sari Court Of Appeals. The Court of Appeals last week af firmed the Paint Lick damage cases against the Louisville and Nashville railroad. The suits are the result of an overflow of Paint Lick creek about five yeara ago and It was charged that the L. and N. bridge caused the trouble, on account of the abutments turning the channel of the creek, nverflnwin the town and doing considerable damage. The plaintiff in the above case was G. W. Conn and in the circuit court here about one year ago, a jury gave Conn damages to the extent nf Sl.fiOO. The Court or Appeals haa now tflrmsd this decision, and it is probable that several more similar cases wt'l he filed against the defendant during the next term of court.

It is said that these serious charges may yet be brought to the attention nf the federal grand jury, in which case, it la said proof against him will show that he haa been engaged in this Illicit business for some time.
