'Banker-Farmer Mixer' A little over n year ago at North Lake, Wisconsin, a farm management elub pulled off n big program calling it a "Uanker-Fnrmcr Mixer". This club was one of the first clubs in Wis consin to make n careful study of the buslncM mnnngemcnt of farms with t,n up-tn-iliite bunker or two tu mem ben. These clubs nave done n great deal to develop certain rural districts In Wisconsin nr.il should be tried b) farmers and bankers in Kentucky. To Sell Personalty.

DO NOT ALLOW , HARVEY HELM The Children To Go To Dies Suddenly In Miss The Lake Unaccom- j issippi. Death Shock panied. To-Friendo. The immnp-rnivnt of the I'ishl. ir Club who have the fishing privilege nt the water works lake, earnestly re quest that the members of the club will not allow their children to go to the lake unattended. The rules of the organisation pro hibits the issuance of their tickets to crsoni under IU years of age, nnd forbids persons under 1 8 going to the lake unless accompanied by their par ents or guardian. These rules will be strictly enforced this year. The water is deep and it Is danger ous for children to go there alone, and in addition to this, the club suf fered considerable damage to their boats and in other wnys last year, which they wish t o avoid. The fish ing club has gone to considerable ex pense to stock and equip the Inkc in order that it may be n source of pleas ure to its members and it does not feel like accepting the responsibility of any harm that might befall small bos through using their equipment without authority. Farmers Buy Together. Ten farmers' clubs down in Pulaski County met nt Somerset recently to purchase fertiliiers. Five fertilizer companies were represented by bids so the farmers were nble to contract coopcratiwdy for their ncid phosphate and basic slag for the spring. Sells Suburban Property. Squire J. I'. Ilourne sold his hand some home on the Danville pike Just outside of the city limits, to Mr. Hen Swope, of Hryantsville, possession to be given nt once. This is one of the prettiest homes in or near town and contains nbout 15 acres of land. The price was private. Mr. and Mrs. Swope and family will be heartily welcomed to our city. Get Your Fish ing Tickets. The Club tickets for I-ako l'lacid for the season are now ready and can be obtained upon application to Judge Stapp, the club secretary. The dues for the current year are fifty cents for old members, and to be classed as on old member, you must have paid fur nnd held u ticket last year. Persons who have been mem bers but who foiled to pay dues for l'JlH will be classed ns new members and will be rharged $2. for n ticket, which is the regular fee for new members. The above course was decided upon at the regular annual meeting of the Club last week. A Prediction And An Answer. Secretary Wilson, of the Depart ment of Ij.Iioi, says: "The present period cf rrrdjust meiit is the crili'iii tir.ie. If we can pai t''ioug.i it snfci" we h.ivo before us fiuin eight '. ten years of Indus, tri ll activity equal tu ny wuvo of prosperity we eve.- have had. Hut if there is any ciii.i. unemployment, there will be n period of industrial unrest which may lead us m u repeti tion of the French or the Hussinn revolution". Secretary Lane, of the Department of the Interior, saysj "If Congress will appropriate the relatively small sum which I have asked for the con struction of soldier-settlements in every State in the Union, I can offer jobs almost immediately to 1000,0110 of our returned fighting men, thus helping tu stem the tide of industrial unrest predicted by Secretury Wil son; provide farm homes for 25,000 of these men, thus nilgrnting the evils "of-tenantry; und bring into cultiva tion 1,500,000 acres of nt present un productive land, thus helping to make up the deficiency in the rate of grow tli of cultUutcd land as compar ed with the rate of growth of our pop ulation. There can bo no surer in ruriincu for the Nation than to put its men upon the soil."

The announcement of the sudden 'nth of Congressman Harvey Helm at Columbus, Miss., last Monday morning came ns n distinct shock to his numerous friends throughout the district. Acute indigestion caused his death, ns lie had not been well for several days, nml it wus thought that he was suffering with n slight attack of Influenza. When he wns taken with acute indigestion, be lived only u few hours, dying shortly after 3 o'clock Monday morning. Congressman Helm and Mrs. Helm had been In Mississippi for several weeks where he had recently pur chased a large plantation and recent announcements from there stated that he expected to make his home in Columbus at the expiration of his term in Congress. Seven times he hail been honored with the election of Congressman from this district and had he lived until March 4th, he would have start ed on his seventh term. After his election last November Mr. Helm an nounced that he would retire from politics after his present term to which he wns re-elected. He had many warm fiicnds in Garrard nnd always recei.-ed a henvy vote here. The Interior Journal says of his death: "Although born in Danville, Mr. Helm was a Lincoln county product. His father, Harvey Helm, war farm ing out on the Knob Lick pi.;, on the place now owned by J. 11. Tnxton, and !i il moved to Danville so that his older rhlhlic:i might nave the benefit of gooil se.iools. It was durim; this period tl t Congressman Helm fiui saw the light of day. His father died about 1878. His mother, who was n .Miss Craig, died a dozen or r.'cre years ago. He leaves three sisters, Mrs. Lettie Helm of Cincinnati, Mrs. Horace Brown, of Louisville, und Mrs. J Frank Walton, of Cincinnati. An oliler brother, Sam Helm, died many years ago. There were several oth er children of the family who died in their infancy. Mr. Helm came of fine old Kentucky stock, both the II..I.... ..n.l fV.,l..

Deceased had been frequently honored. He represented this county in the Legislature, was county attor ney two terms, wns u delegate to the democratic national convention at Kansas City and six times had been elected to Congress. Had he lived a day longer he would have died on the day his term of office expired. Had he lived until Tuesday, he would have begun the term he was elected to last November. He was educated here and nt Itichmond having graduated with honors from Central University at the latter place some 30-odd years ago. He studied law under the late Col. T. I'. Hill, taught school for. awhile nt 1'erryvllle and practiced law' for a brief period at l'ineville, after which ho returned to Stanford and resumed the practice of his profes sion. Less than two years ago Mr. Helm was married to Miss Mary llruce, of this city. There was never a happier ' pair and they were Just getting ready ' to live when the end came." I It was Mr. Helm's wish that no 1 Congressional committee be sent to his burial nnd his wishes were acceded to. The burial took place at Buffalo cemetery ut Stanford jesterday af ternoon before a large gathering. Brief services were held at the grnve by ltcv. P. L. Bruce of that city. Washington Built A Drill. When Washington farmed all seed was sown by hand. He saw that this method distributed seed badly so he made u "barrel plough" which was the beginning of our modern gruin drill. In writing to a friend ho said that it did not do good work in land "that is very full either of stumps, stones, or large clods; but where the ground is tolerable free from these und in good tilth, and particularly in light land, I am certain you will find it equal to your most sanguine expectation, for Indian corn, wheat, barley, pease, or uny other tolerably round grain,. .A small bag, containing about a peck of the seed you are sowing, is hung to the nails on the right handle, and with u small tin cup the barrel Is replen ished with convenience, whenever it is necessary, without loss of time, or waiting to come up with the seed-bag at the end of the row".

Mrs. Kinnalrd began tho program by explaining the object of the Mem orial service in honor of Miss Wil laid and that the fund that is given on this cannon is not to b.i ent for a r.ii'iummt of stone thf only a few can see, but to proniot.1 the Intereit of 'lie prohibition cmis?. She n'so spoke of the rejoicing ivir the leth Amendment. Mrs. Henry Moore, Mrs. II. S. Hud ton and Miss Helen Gill rend inter esting articles. The four pastors of the churches were present. It was regretted that Mr. Moorman came too late to take part in th-j exercises. Messrs Hudson, Pulmeter nnd Stroth. er made short enthusiastic talks on piohibition, showing that their hearts are in the good cause, and that the W. C. T. I', may depend upon the ministers to help in the fight against tho liquor traffic. Especially did the ladies enjoy tho "bouquet" given the W. C. T. U. in the speech that Mr. Strother made. The roll was called and eleven new mimes enrolled, which now makes a membership of 50 women and 12 honorary members. Mrs. Fnrra made n statement about the first organization of the Lancas ter W. C.

At the Crab Orchard depot Sun dny morning Grndon Thompson, the 18-yrnr-old son of Clinney Thompson, who lives some two miles East of Crab Orchard, shot nnd killed Pate King, Jr., and dangerously wounded his brother, Sam King, both sons of Mr. and Mrs. Pate J. King, of the East End. Thompson only fired two shots and took to his heels ns soon as he had done so. Sheriff II. C. Baughman was notified of the trag edy nnd he and Deputy Sheriff Rob ert T. Lewis left at once for the scene nnd began a search, which was kept up for several hours, but without avail. They went to the home of Clinney Thompson and he promised the officers that he would notify them if his son came there and would hold him until they arrived. He was greatly shocked over what his son had done. At an early hour Monday morning Sheriff Baughman was called by Mr. Thompson nnd told to come after the boy, which he did, and he is now in jail awaiting the result of i'nm King's wound, which is in the breast and is considered a serious one. The boys had had words up town that morning and the killing at the depot was the result. It seems that Sam King and Thompson were in love with the same girl and King had recently received a picture of her, which he told Thompson and ac cording to Frank Boone, remarked that no "s n of b h is big enough to take it away from me". This In censed Thompson and words followed. Thompson left and went to his home and also to a neighbor's. At his re quest Frank Boone, a son of Geo. D. Boone, who is a neighbor of Thomp son, hitched up his horse and brought Thompson to to.vn. Boone sa he did not know that Thompson nad a pistol, until he was nearly to town. and then he did not make any threats. Arriving at the depot Thompson found the King boys there and called Pate King out of the depot nnd told him that his brother hnd done him a dirty trick. "No dirtier than you have done many a time", answered King. Sam King, seeing the two in dulging in hot words, came from the depot toward them and nt the sight of him Thompson drew his pistol and fired two shots. One killing Pate King instantly and the other danger ously wounding Sam King. Frank Boone was arrested ns an accomplice and he is under guard, Chief of Po lice George T. Wood looking after him. He talks freely about the trou ble and seems to feel that he had no part nor parcel in it. As stated above the King boys are sons of Mr. and Mrs. Pate J. King nnd have been quiet, penceable fellows. The death of one and the wounding of the other is a terrible blow to the parents and in their great grief they have the sympathy of all who know them. The King boys arc nephews of Attor ney B. Hansford, their mother be ing a 3istcr of his. Interior Journal. LOCAL RED CROSS To Name Committee on Nursing Activities. Letters received ut Lake Division headquarters show great interest among Lake Division Ked Cross work ers in the proposed development of the public health nursing service nnd the Ked Cross courses of instruction in home hygiene and care of the sick, and home dietetics which were tem porarily interrupted by the war activities. Chapters in Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky are organizing chapter committees on nursing activities as the first step in properly carrying on this work of community protection. The committee of the Garrard County Chapter must incindo n rep resentative of tho local cUic club or the woman's club, one member of thi locul board of health, of thi board of education, of the medical association, of the Chamber of jCommerce or board of trade, one member of the clergy, one member of the chapter home service section, und a represen tative Ked Cross Nurse appointed with the approval of tho Division Di rector of Nursing. Other local public health nursing agencies and the Junior Ked Cross ure also to be represented on this committee according to instructions received from national headquarters by the Lake Division Department of Nursing, through which department the development and direction of the public health program Is to be carried on.

The Germans carried off from the manufacturing towns of Belgium all the engines nnd hollers nnd modern mnchlnery that they could transport. They are evidently very fond of souvenirs. Belgium on the other hand needs no souvenirs. There Is no question but that she will remember Germany for centuries to come. Senator Borah courteously declined to attend President Wilson's "nt home" to the foreign affairs com mittees of congress February 2Gth. If Senator Bornh should later decide to give a pink tea at the committee rooms, would it be incumbent upon the president to send regrets? The era of fighting is over and the era of investigation is well begun. To prevent unemployment we would sug gest that each soldier as he is dis charged should be placed on an in vestigating committee. Our army in France seems to have had much more courage than artillery and a much larger stock of moral strength than of aeroplanes. No one can be in two places at once. Congressman-elect Merger of Wisconsin fully expected to spend some time In congress. But an im portant engagement for twenty years at Fort Leavenworth is likely to pre vent. If tho present irruption of Bolshev ist marksmen continues, becoming a prime minister in Europe will be equivalent to taking out a burial per mit. General Pershing's attitude toward a possible Presidential nomination is most praiseworthy. It is seldom that a man is so absorbed in his own proper business as not to heed the lure of a G. O. P. nomination. The bullet fired nt Clcmcnceau not only struck him but the peace con ference ns well. 'No beer, no work" buttons arc in evidence. How conditions change! The old rule was "no work, no beer". Germany in the aggregate to-day consists of nothing but debts. And this is not reckoning its debt to man kind in general. Premier Clemcnceau, receiving the intcr-nllied women, said that "when people once came to an agreement they had better part". The con verse, i. e., that people who differ should remain together until they come to an agreement, is only ap plied in the case of Juries. Alcohol is weakened, tobacco is go ing up in smoke, but coffee still holds its grounds. If any one asks you what is going on, tell him that taxes are going up, prices are going down, the country is going dry, congress is going home, the president is going back, business is going to pay, and we're all going to be happy. On account of her services as n surgeon in the Civil War, congress passed a bill permitting the late Dr. Mary Walker to dress In male attire. It would be well if congress in these days should pass another bill of the zame nature requiring the conscien tious objectors to wear feminine garb. Tho Prohibitionists showed their fighting spirit in fighting spirits. It apparently will be Victory Lib- erty short term notes Instead of bonds in the next April campaign. But vhether they arc notes or bonds, it is up to you and me to subscribe tJ our limit anyhow. We wonder, from what comer if the land or seas the marines "Ee Yah" yell will next be heard. If railroad wages keep up we shall soon have an aristocracy of wealth in which Pullman porters possessing yachts nnd brakemcn owning Packard cars will figure. It was probably when President Wilson beheld the suffragists that he first fully realized he was again on his dear native shore. You have to burn the candle at both ends if you mnke both ends meet these days. The night gown strike is the latest weapon of the militant suffragist. Wo predict it will be effectual. Our philosopher says; The farmer who uscsr only his hands can't suc ceed. He's bound to mix brain wort with hand work to make much money. No, young man, you can't take any more liberties with "Liberty Bell" than any other belle. She was named that because she was born on armis tice day while her father was fight ing for liberty in France. While collecting curios, war relics and the like, why not get a piece of copper from a Kentucky distillery? When you are telling the grand chil dren of those good old days you can give a little illustration.
