WORTHY CAUSE All Should Lend Sup port To The Kentuc ky Childrens Home Society. In this issue of the Kccord we are running the proclamation of Govern or Black designating Children's Week in the interest of the Kentuc ky Children's Home Society one of the most worthy charitable objeit that can be brought before the peo-1 pie of Garrard county. The drive to I be made throughout the State is to build u home for these destitute chil dren, the land having already been secured near Louisville. The present site in Louisville is entirely Inadequate, being very small nnd Insufficient for the varied needs of such a home, lacking ade quate nnd attractive playgrounds, so much needetl for these orphan chil dren. The drive in Garrard county for her proportionate amount will be conducted during the week of Oct ober i!0ih, and bcfi.it vvh.cii time an illustrated paper will be distributed to all the chool children throughout the county to quicken their intcn-'t in this worthy undertaking.

When your correspondent UUI.VU IIUIIU1S l,WU'- flW.I V . College of Agriculture, in regard to the recent drop in the prices of hogs und cattle, he said: "The general public does not . teem to realize that the recent slump ' lina till ti i l -n ri ruaun t ft ilo. crease of 10 to 30 per cent of the prices raid a few weeks ago. ThU difference In price means the los of millions of dollars to the farmers of the country. The great danger of thi tremendous decrease where there has been practically no de crease in the cost of labor, imple ments, materials, clothing and other necessities, lies in the possible cur tailment of food production and in the dircouragvment of agriculture. "ThU whole matter Is often con-. tddered merely a farmer's problem, but it is one which the whole country Hiust help solve. During the war the farmer was urged to increase his production enormously. If pro duction is to be maintained he must have price which are at least on a comparative level with the price he has to pay for everything he must buy. The consuming public must realize that a proper level of com parative price should be maintained as the world must eat and the farmer Is the only person who produces food " Condition Critical. The condition of Judgo John W. Hughe i very critical and his re covery Is doubtful.

Isiuai Proclamation Cililtm of SUU dren's Horn Making Manr Callinr Upoa to Aid Chit. Society In Nedd Improvemtnts. "You have not heretofore failed to make generous response to the call for laudable endeavor, and the good you have thus done, the things that are worth while whose accom plishment you have aided, furnish adequate and satisfying compensa tion for the sacrifices you have made therefor. "You recognize it as of the law- of our responsible lives that there is ever present the duty to help when ever there exists real need of help. "And now, in trustful confidence in your continuing helpful mood and happily aware of your ability to ex tend your benefactions, I call your attention to the Kentucky Children's Home Society, in the faith that you, seeing Its high aim, may prove your ready willingness to bestow some financial help to it from your ample store. "That society was incorporated nearly a fourth of a century ago, and to find and to take charge of, under its mission is and has been to seek, orders of the County Courts, desti tute and neglected children, those on whose innocent lives untoward cir cumstance lays a heavy hand, little folks who are sound in mind and body, and yet Ineligible to admission to any other of our State charitable institutions. They are a class to themselves, with no one in their com munities charged with the duty of looking after their care or rearing. 'But the society undertakes to res cue them from their crushing condi tion by providing them with food, raiment and housing, and a period of training in the Receiving Home, until there can be found educated, moral and Christian homes in which to place them during their non-age, and thus make of them useful citi zens, instead of a burden to the State. "My object is to commend the society and its purposes to the peo ple, and to suggest that the building and grounds now occupied are not commensurate with the demands up on the institution nor adequate to the great work in hand. And so it is the desire of the society to ac quire und pay for a suitable tract of land situated near the city of Louis ville, and erect thereon a number of small buildings on the village cottage plan, a modern children's village, for the accommodation of the children and the employes in charge. To se cure and thus equip such property it j is necessary" to raise several hundred thousand dollars. "The last week in October, 1919. will be designated as the time in which to secure said funds, and I re- . . -... ...... c.i,i o... , ' ZTZZJ, T the ministers of the Gospel, County Fiscal Courts and the people in gen eral nnd the children in the State contribute liberally to said fund. "And I should rejoice to know- that the ministers in our State will, on Sunday, October 20, especially mention and commend to their con gregations the purposes aforesaid and urge them to help by contribut ing of their means. The thought that all contribu tions whether made by the Fiscal Courts or otherwise , be made in the name and in behalf of the children of Kentucky has impressed me very much, for it would be a beautiful thing to have the property und its equipment acquired ns a gift, made by the children of the State who are able to give to the little unfortunate children who are not able to give."
