We still hae a sneaking suspicion that Villa has a German anceitor somewhere in hi family history- Don't fail to see Sarah llemliardt In "Mothers of France" nt Itomans' Opera House, thin, Thursday niKht. Historians are engaged in an invetigatlon to determine when I the first submarine boat was used. They hae strangely overlooked the evidence of old Jonah. Sarah llernhardt is nt her best In "Mothers of France" at Romans' Opera House tonight. A letter was recently received in Louisville from a soldier "over there" dated under the heading. Sans Origine. Hi friends were delighted to know where he landed and cot out maps of France to locate cape Sans Origine. Their eagerness was blighted on being in formed that the words were French for "without origin". After the United States had de bated for eight hours whether the word "intended" should be substi tuted for tlie. word "calculated", that body must have adjourned with very' Jaded intellects. How proud we should be that not the smallest matter escapes the Argus eyes of our law makers. A subscriber suggests that in dealing with loiterers we exempt the fiihermen. We'll agree to that if they arc required to estab lish the absolute truth of every tale told, and demonstrate that they have really contributed to the meat supply, Chancellor von Hcrtling insists that Russia has not been "dishonor ed." If the treatment Russia has been subjected to at the hands of Germany contains no element of dishonor, Americana may form n pretty fair conception of what our fate would be were wc to fall into their hands, especially if they should decide to mix a little dis honor in their treatment.

Larue Casey, who volunteered his services immediately after the out break of the war, InApril 1917, was arrested as a deserter from Camp Shelby, and was taken to Camp X.achary Taylor last Monday morn ing by sheriff Walker. This is the second offense of desertion by young Casey and a prison term of rcvcral years, will probably be his penalty for his last unpatriotic act. ORIGIN OF "SAMMIE." It is said when the American troops landed "over there" they were greeted with a thunderous "Hurrah for our friends". The Francois for this is "Vive les nmis" (veev lay zamee.) The Americans caught the sound "zamee" and thought they were being erected us "Sammies", "Uncle Sam's boys". The mistaken nick-name was so good that it sticks. TINDER PLACE SELLS AGAIN Squire S. T. Sanders who recent ly purchased the place of Rev. F. M. Tinder, has resold the place to Itrutus Wearren, for $17,500, which is an advance of $4,000, over the former price, Mr. Snnders is to get the crops this year. The farm contains 77 acres and possession will be given January 1st, 1919. Mr. Sanders, we hope will continue to reside with us and may buy an other farm In the county.

The message stated that he was in a hos pital in Liverpool, England, but had about recovered from an dttnek of mumps.

Those rjot using the "Classified Column" will be charged the usual price of ten cents a line. By mistake, some one took the wrong overcoat from my storo last county court day, and left a smaller one.

The Hemp Industry in ten of th best counties of the State of Ken tucky, is on its death bed. Those in commnml thould turn or. th light and immediately find out whether this fibre is a necessity.

At any rate the county has won her honor flag und she now flies from the balcony of the court house, a token of reward that cun and will be pointed out with pride by her citizenship. OVER THE TOP" Br Sergeant Empty, to Start In Next Issue We have secured the biggest newspuper serial feature since the beginning of the war, entitled "Over The Top", written by Sergeant Arthur Guy Kmpey, and the first enstallment will appear In our next issue. Every Americun father. mother, daughter, and son, should read this story, which this Ameri can boy tells in an interesting and thrilling manner, how he did his bit .Somewhere in France". His ex periences arc grim, but they are thrilling and lightened by a touch of humor, as original as they are true. On the back page of this is sue will be found a synopsis of th story, which has twenty-seven chap ters, one of which will be run every week. Start with the next Issue and don't miss a copy. The statesmen of Kentucky should take up this matter nt once so we can know whether to make stove wood of our hemp brakes or try to stay with the industry. Why is it you can take the Bill of Lading from Danville, Hudson and Davis, with a car of hemp consigned to an Eastern Manufacturer, and then write to the same firm about a sale of your hemp and receive no ans wer; the same is also true of Spears. Have the books open and let the farmers see if there is not a com juiiuuiun. woes me law not lurnisn n redress. Bear In mind hemp one .year ago was selling at $14.50 and with the conditions heretofore s men tioned, this year is selling for $12. Don't tell us there isn't rot some where so rotten that a man with catarrh can smell it. Let's have the exact facts from the hemp brake to the loom. Let all the people sing "A Charge To Keep I Have A God To Glorify". Hemp Grower. CONVENTION. The District W. C. T. U. conven tion will convene at the Christian church on May 8th.
