"With pride and hope in our country' future, and assurance of genuine co-operation with all," nre words thnt bum with the true patriotic spirit in times like these. They are uttered at a time and by a young man who loves his country and his people, not as a par tisan but as a patriot. He has shown it in nil hi life and just such a spirit has won the people of Breckcnridge to his support and the large vote given him at the recent election. Arthur Heard is a man of character, high-toned principles and stands for the best interests of his county, his home, his people. He will prove true, and the people bnve made no mistake in electing him to the office of County Court Clerk of Breckenridge county. Let us remember the little children and the soldier boys with a.iJ romenih r our friends with cards tins Christmas. jMr pica you mut admit that after all "the gift without the giver is naught" regardless of how great or how small the gift may he. So now since man has made printing such a wonderful art you can get the most exquisite Christmas cards with sentiments on them that are worth reading three hundred and sixty-rive days in the year, and any of your most particular friend would be happy to get one. Now then we have samples of these cards and can get them for you either en graved or printed, and we assure you your order will have our per sonal attention. The only thing asked of you is that you shop early and get your order in before the Christmas rush. We can eat turkey for our Thanksgiving dinner with an easy conscience because we know that fowls can't he shipped across the waters. But just the turkey is not all, there is "stuffing,"' nnd that take- lots of wheat bread, since most people ao not know now to u-e corn bread in making ttie dressing for any kind of fowl. If you have never tried it before try using either egg corn bread or the old fashioned hoeeake in with y ur wheat bread when you make your dressing. B is excellent, and not only that, we are saving the bis cuitsforthe poor little helpless Belgians who are starving to deaih every day. The Cloverport Light and lot Company has increased the mini mum rate for lights from tifty cents to one dollar. The company is paying twice the amount for slack coal this winter to what they paid last winter, so they are forced to raise the price in order to meet ex penses. Onlv those who are in business for themselves realize what it takes to run a plant, and Citi understand why the price has to be raised not only for lights but tor everything eke. FARM AND STOCK. ! a- In Germany, butter is selling at $3 per pound and sugar at 75c per pound.

Pittsburgh. The North side has been finned for ninny things. Now It is Um habitat of the alllfc'utor. If you don't believe It, ask George Moul, a perfeetly reliable employee of the Bureau of Highways and Sewers, tie has the proof on exhibition at his Inane In LoeUhart street. He got It yesterday when he was sent to fix u sewer In Royal street. He had lifted the manhole and wus prodding to remove the obstruction, when it strange face, with rather evll lunklng eyes, bobbed In his range of vision.

He moved to Glen Dean twenty years ago without a dollar. He got a job on the railroad as section mm at $i 10 per day. By economy and hard work he saved enough to buy a farm in the woods on the installment plan. Now he has a good home, stock barn anil other outbuildings. This year he has a good crop; 12,000 pounds bright one sucker tobacco, i,o()0 bushels corn to sell, Is feeding 2H head of hogs and has a good black mare mule for sale.

Rye is good to sow to be plowed or spaded under in tne spring. Use about half a pound to one pound of seed to the square rod. 000 The advantages of sowing rye are: (1) it protects the soil from washing; (I) it retains nitrogenous plant food ma terial which might otherwise escape into the air during the fall and winter; (3) when turned under in the spring it furnishes humus to the soil. 000 Save the leaves as they are valuable as sources of humus and plant food. If burned, even though the ashes are saved, all of the humus is lost and much of the fertilizing value. Coal ashes are useful for the same purpose, though they have very little fertilizing value. 000 R. G. Robertson & Sons have baled about 100 tons of hay and stored in their barns for feeding during the win ter. This is a wise plan. It saves time and preserves the hay, and it is ready for shipping if not needed for feeding. 000 Jim Dean has one hundred acres ot shocked fodder which he is now shred ding and storing in his barn for wiuter feeding. He also has a hundred acie field which he will turn stock on. Mr. Dean is a big feeder of cattle and hogs 000 Ample provision for the sheltering and feeding of live stock for the winter should be made. All surplus male stock and other undesirable animals should be sold It is very desirable, however, tnat female live stock at all suitable for breeding purposes should be kept for increasing the herds. 000 Fisher Moorman and Charlie Dean have a fine bunch of sheep, the best we have seen in the countv. They will be worth their weight in gold next spring. More farmers ought to turn their at tention to raising sheep. They will add to their iocome as well as increase the food and wool supply of the country. 000 Jim Dean picked us up Saturday at McQuadv and took us to bis beautiful home, near Glen Dean, for dinner. It is the old home place of his father, Eli Dean, who lives with him, and has turned over the management of the farm to Jimmie and his wife. Eli has a beautiful room, Dicely furnished, com fortable and cosey, where he comes and goes and has a good easy time. No cares and nothing to do but to read the papers and enjoy life. Mrs. Dean is a fine housekeeper, a good cook and serves a plendid meal. There has re ceuily come into his homes beautiful baby girl which is the joy of the house hold We certainly enjoyed our visit to this happy family. 000 Jimmie Is not only a good farmer but a good provider. He has stored up fi r winter Irish aid sweet potatoes, cab bage, turnips ard carrots. These are buried in the garden In the old-fashioned way. A fine row of celery and a big bed of turnip grtenn, horse radish atd other things that will come in for wlu ter supplies. This is what we call nn ideal life on the farm. 000 Seven hogsheails of new Burley sold on the Louisville market last week brought $16 50 to $26 50. 000 In the National egg laying contest at the Kentucky Experiment Station which closed last Wednesday, the Golden Hod Egg Farm, Hatdin--burg, Percy Beard, owner, was awarded the fourth prize with a record of 1,028 eggs for 52 weeks. The highest producing pen of ." pullets was owned by Clarence Freeman, of Cadiz, Ky., with a record of 1,078 eggs. Dr. R. Lindsev Ireland, of Louisville, owned the second pen with a record of l,o65eggs. Thos. J. Price, of Roger ville, Teun., the third pen with a rec ord of 1,056 eggs. The Golden Rod is right up with the best and Mr. Beard is to be congratulated. These pens were all White Leghorn9. 000 Cal Thurman, who lives a few miles out from Cloxerpoit, has an eighty acre farm all under cultivation. This year he had twenty acres planted in corn which yielded sixty bushels to the acre, and eighteen acres in Burley tobacco that made 3,KX) pounds, aud the other Is in meadow. The remarkable part about Mr. T hurman's farming is he does all the work bv himself. During the summer he hired help three days. He works so hard that he does not have time to complain, and he is perfectly satisfied with the prices. 000 Mrs. Thos. Donoghue has sold this year $254 worth of chickens and eggs, the product of 60 Plymouth Rock hens. 000 J. T. Sermon, Hardinsburg No. I, has 12,000 pounds of bright one sucker tobacco, 1!) shoats, Duroc and Poland China, and 1,200 bushels of corn all for bale. 000 Julius Jackson & Sons have 15,000 pounds of mountain Burley, a very fine type of tobacco. 000 Israel Holder and Marion McGavock shipped from this city Monday a car load of cattle and hogs. 000 Hardin Kinder sold Israel Holder a cow and calf lor $85. Steve Wilson one for $50. 000 The Food Administration Board has advised pomtry dealers not to buy turkey hens under 8 pounds and toms under 12 pounds. 000 "Gip," Mrs. W. O. Bailey's family buggy mare, died last week. She was ii years old and Mrs. Bailey is very much grieved over her death. She was her mainstay and dependence, safe, sure and always ready and willing. Truly, it is a great loss to Mrs. Bailey. VANITY CASES FOR NURSES Red Cross Lassies Going to France May Beautify Themselves to Heart's Content New York.

Although a large num ber of miners have been brought back from the front and thousands of war prisoners are employed In the pits, even the ammunition factories cannot get sufficient fuel. The use of electric power and gas has been reduced 20 per cent everywhere, but this measure fulls to bring relief. Many cities have been compelled to prohibit cooking and beating with gus, and large num ber of towns had to shut down their lighting plants. The manufacturers of war materials have warned the gov ernment that they will not be able to fill their contracts If the present con ditions continue. See, Honesty Dose Pay, Parkersburg, W. Va.
