Irwin, President and General Manager of the Henderson Route, took an auto ride through Indiana some weeks ago. Ho said he could not help seeing the grout difToronco in the appearance of the farms, the homes and the barns in that state as compared to his. homo state and along his road. It opened hi eyes and he came home with the thought that ho must do something to help his people and (spo c illy the" people along the line of his road to get a little more cnthu ui"m anJ pride in their farms and homes and their way of farming. His first idea along this lino is better farming, more up-tc -date meth ods better care of land, bettor crop-j and less acreage. ' Mr. Irwin's idea is that the farmers need instruction, they need information as to how big crops are raised on lands, no better than their owii, with the same outlay of jnonoy and labor. He wrote tho agricultural department at Lexington and they willingly ngreed to furnMi tho information thiough their bureau of intelligent and prac tical teachers without money or price. The only requirement they Uod was the attendance of the farmers, fto an arrangement has as . . i .1 T"" i. n 4 nt- Invit-iivr it li .

They will bold these meetings at any point in the county where the people want them and arc willinir to furnish the hall or a convenient place for holding them. Brandenburg has already asked for a meetingand is getting up it petition asking for one to be held there. n It remains now for Breckenridge county to get bus,y. Clover tinvt nt'od this meeting the farmers for miles around want the in- foi nmtion about their work. A petition should be circulated at once asking for it. Other places in the county can Have it, only for the asking. So get busy now and go for it. THE BATTLE IN CHICAGO The Republican forces arc battling strong today in Chicago to make a nomination for President. From all accounts there has not been such an interest in a National convention in the history of the Republican party. The prominence of tho men who have made the race for the nomination before the Republican party in the various states, has made this possible. All kinds of charges have been brought against each other in the race, and their backers are wrought up to a desperate point to win the fight. It is possible that in view of these facts, the delegates might choose a dark horso altogether, and thus put both Mr. Tuft and Col. Roosevelt out of business. Whatever the result may be, it is certain the Democrats this yeir have the best chance they have ever had to elect u President, if they make a wise choice at Baltimore. Roosevelt's presence in the middle of the fight is having its ef fect. It wouldn't surprise us it ho didn't capture the plum on tho first ballot. Geo. Lyddiin, Irvington, has 87 A. in peas, 45 A. in corn, and 1 A. in watermelons Geo. will havo plenty of friends this fall. . -Wc still believe it will be Wilson at Baltimore.

THE DIGESTION OF A NEW-BORN INFANT The new-born baby is quito a helpless object in many respects, but It has some resources that havo not been sus pected. A common belief In regard to these Interesting animals Is that they are quite incapable of digesting any thing but the comparatively simple food of the mother's milk. It is cer tain, at any rate, that no one in bis senses would offer such a baby food that is radically different from that of the mother's milk. Dr. Alfred F- Hess of the Depart ment of Health of New York city has been able to show that both the stom achand'he intestlno of a new-born Infant one that has not yet partakon of any food -contain digestive ferments in considerable quantities. In tho stomachs he found not only hydroch loric tcid,as in the stomach of an adult, but the two fermonts 1 opsin and rennet. The stomach is therefore prepared to digest from the very start. The hy drochlorlc acid seems to have a useful function in that it is capable of killing any bacteria that may get Into the stomach by mistake. In tho intestine Dr. Hess found three types of ferments; namely, protease, or protein digesting ferment; lipase.or fat digesting ferment, and amylase, or starch digesting ferment. The last was the least regular in its amount, in some cases none being present Al though bile is known to be present in tie gall bladders ot embryos some time before birth. Dr. Hess was unable to find any in the upper part of tho in tes tlnes of any of the thirty-five babies that he examined. The material for chemical examin ation was removed from the infan s by a special rubber tube, so that no harm was done to the little patients. X-rays were used to show the location from which the samples were removed. Scientific American. Marion Weatherholt General Contractor Phone 50 Cloverport, Ky.
