H. Beard Recommended For Delegate. CHAMP CLARK ENDORSED Three hundred Democrats met In Mass Convention at Hardinsburg last Saturday to name delegates to the slate Democratic Convention which meets in Louisville today, Wednesday. This was as.fiue a body of representative citizens as ever met in the court house at liar, dinsburg. They left busy homes and busy farms from a sense of, pride and duty. They had a cause at heart, love of home, love ot country and good gov ernment. They came to send men with the same love and pride to represent them and stand for them at Louisville. Promptly at 2 o'clock Thos. J. Moore, chairman, called the convention to or Ar We said the object of the meeting was to appoint delegates to the conven tion at Louisville who woum senu uci egates to Baltimore who would name the man who will be the next President of the United States. He pled for har mony. Judge Moorman, who had been acting as chairman m the absence of Mr. Moore, made his call and vacated the chair to Mr. Moore. Dave Walls, secretary, read both calls. Judge Matthias Miller was then put in nomination for permanent chairman and unanimously elected. Judge Miller thanked the convention and said it was a great honor to preside over such an intelligent body of representative Dem ocrats. John D.-Babbage was the choice for secretary. ' On motion of Jesse Whitworth, the chairman appointed the following com mittee ou resolutions and delegates, viz; Lee Walls, Mike Miller, Vic Robertson, D. H. Severs and Jesse Whitworth. The committee retired and in a short time reporting a set of resolutions, en dorsing Champ dark for the Democrat ic nomination. Commending the Hon. Ben Johnson for his good work in Con gress, Gov. McCreary and the state ad ministration for their work, and M. H. Beard for delegate from the Fourth Dis trict. Mr. Moore objected to1 the report of the committee and offered a substitute sunnortincr his substitute ill a very warm speech which called forth a warm and heated debate. On a vote the substitute was lost aud the report of the committee adopted. The convention then adjourned. Afterthoughts. Tom Moore made a gallant but a lone ly losing fight. His tongue was on fire for the wrong men. It was a somewhat hot convention, but it was orderly and respectable. Judtre Moorman did the handsome thine when he declined to make a fight for county chairman. He made a telling speech full of Patriotism and party liar lnonv. The good old days of the mass con vention will pass into history with this one. The Hon. Ed. Shelman with his eighty votes, not eight, as we Had it last week, got very little comfort. The Republicans seemed to enjoy the Democratic situation While we had a hot time seemingly every man had a hear, ing and was neither cried down nor re fused a square deal. The native-state-idea is what won for Clark, Wilson, nevertheless,, was deep down in their hearts. Tile Factory Rushing-'Busy.

"I cannot tell a lie," replied Mrs. Do Kolkey, simply. "Thero was no other way to get money out of him. Ho hasn't given mo a cent for a year, and first I tried to chloroform him, but ho always sleeps on his face. So I called my brother and wo held him and I got what was In his pockets." "Perfectly justifiable," announced the court. Seafaring Races. The portraits of Captain Amundsen show a certain likeness to Dr. Nansen.

All Deeds Must be Recorded Be fore Property can be Sold What all Should Know. READ FOR YOUR OWN GOOD There seems to be an Idea among the people that deeds and mortgages must be recorded In a given length of time, say thirty days after date of instrument. At the request of a number of friends I will give the law on the subject which shown the importince of having all deeds and mortgages recorded as soon as executed. A deed or mortgage is a written notice to the world of any transaction made, and when recorded is binding. A deed or mortgage un-i recorded Is good only as between the. grantor and grantee. It has become, so apparent that deeds and mortgages should be recorded that there Is now in, the Statutes this law to-wit: "All deeds and mortgages and other instruments of writing which are re quired by law to be recorded to be ef fectual against purchaser without notice, or creditor shall be recorded in the clerk's office of the court of the county In which the property is con veyed, or the greater part thereof, shall be. But It shall be unlawful for any clerk or deputy clerk to admit to record in such office any deed or con veyance of any interest In real estate equal to or greater than a life es'ato unless such deed shall plainly specify and refer to the next Immediate source from which the grantor or grantee! therein derive title to the said real estate or the interest conveyed there in.'' It goes farther and says if such a deed or other recorded writing than the deed offered for record shall refer to such former deed or writing, and give the office, book and page where recorded and the date thereof if dated. It is very plain by this that one can not sell or transfer his property unless his deed is recorded. There is never a week that wt do not have this to contend with Only this week a pentlemnn came in and was sure his deed was re corded. When he looked he found one unrecorded deed. He then had to have a new survey and a new deed made. Both parties are living, so it was not hard to get a new deed. I can refer to some parties at Mc Danlel who failed to have their deeds recorded. In this case one of the parties died and left infant heirs. There is no way for a deed in this case to be made without a suit to give a title and then the court would have to make the deed to same. Then atrain I could sell you a farm today and make you a deed and you could fall to record same If I wanted to I could sell this to another party and have his deed recorded, your right, title and money is none. Of course you could send me to the pen, but that would not save your land. In the last few weeks five or six men have sent in four to seven deeds each. Why is this? If we were handed a five dollar note we would handle same and put them in a place where we would be certain not to lose them. This matter demands the attention of all thinking people. You should be sure your titles are correct, and also that all are recorded. This may save you much trouble and litigation. The same holds true with mortgages. This office will be clad at any time to furnish any information it has concern ing instruments of writing that are con nected witn the Clerk's office. II. M. Beard, Clerk. Mrs. G. W.
