NEW LAW About Primary Should be Stud ied Careftilly--Makes Many Changes in the Old Manner of Nomination. The new primary election law passed by the last Legislature made many changes in the old manner of nomina ting candidates for office. Candidates for county and city offices should study the law carefully In order to acquaint themselves with Its provisions, because certain things must be done before a candidate's name can legally go on the ballot at the August primary election. Devices Eliminated. Hereafter all devices will be elimina ted. Only the names of the candidates will appear on the ballot, and if there are voters who are unable to read they will have a hard time finding their choice on the ballot. With the use of devices voters who could "not read found little trouble in locating their favorites, but this has been changed by the new election law and instead of a ballot resembling a circus poster, it will contain nothing but printed matter with the names of candidates in the proper order. Very Important. One thing candidates should not overlook is preparing the nominating petitions and having the required num ber of legal voters' signatures. A fail ure in this will keep their names off the ballot. Candidates for county and city offices must file nominating petitions bearing the signatures of not less than 3 per cent, aud of more than 10 per cent. of the legal voters of the total party at the last election for President. Percentage of Signers. It will be just as fatal to a candidate to secure more than 10 per cent, than less than 3 per cent. This limit of sig natures wa3 probably incorporated in the law to prevent candidates from getting out early and securing a ma jority, of signatures, which would pre vent other candidates from getting up a nominating petition. When to File Petitions. Cundldates must bear in mind that nominating papers and petitions must be filed with the county clerk thirty days before the election aud nomina ting petitions for signatures must not De circulated earlier than sixty days be fore the date of-filing, which is ninety days before the election. The election will be held on Saturday, August 3, 1013. According to the provisions of the law petitions must not be circula ted for signatures before next May and June. If they arc candidates will be barred from entering the primary. Card of Thanks. We want to thank those who were so good to us during the illness and death of our precious little son, Currie.

Robert Mattingly, of the United States recruiting party stationed at Louisville, has been made a corporal, notice having been sent to him yester day at the Cloverport substation that he had been promoted from the ranks.

Bennlnger was sent there with him. Private Ernest G. Bank was sent to Beaver Dam and Private Jas. W. Rose to Glasgow. Making Parcel Post Pay. In looking through our exchanges we notice that enterprising merchants in several towns are advertising their fa cilities for making prompt delivery of goods to country patrons by Parcel Post. One of The Sun's Versailles ad vertisers Is doing the same thing In viting his customers in the country who want an article in a hurry to 'phone in their order and be will get the goods off by the first rural malt that passes their home. We believe this sort of enterprise will pay. It seems to us that the live fel lows who advertise their wares can turn the Parcel Post to their advan tage. In Europe the farmer derives profit from the Parcel Post. He advertises country produce in his local news paper, t'o be delivered by post, and adds dollars to his Income. Woodford Sun.
