NOT Ol'K WAY, BUT UNCLE SAM'S W e did not, but mind you, the Government has issued the following rules regarding country weeklies: "No publisher may continue subscriptions after three months after date of expiration, unless subscriptions are renewed and paid for. "No publisher may give free copies of his paper, except for ac tual service rendered; except to camp libraries and huts or canteens of organizations recognized by the Government, such as the Red Cross, Y.

STl'DKXT-St M.DIKKS. The slogan of "Enlist and ( i to College" is likely to be more than a mere slogan the first of October when the youths between the ages of is and 21 will be mobilized at more than MM colleges in the 1'. S. for the purpose of being trained as Student-Soldiers. By enlisting in this Student Army Training Corps, the young men receive a college education and at the same time be regular members of the Ann' and those who prove especially qualified are to be commissioned as officers, as 125,000 Com missioned officers are needed in the I". S. Army and it is said that BO.OOO are available.

So it has come, a Fourth Liberty Loan Drive, in spite ot the tact that so mam neonle believed it would not. !ut it is without question thai it is the universal hope that this will be the fourth and last loan and lor tins reason it should he all the more an incentive to make it go over the top. However the American people are so aroused over the necessity of winning the war by this time, they need no other incentives except to say "It will win the war." The amount t be raised in this fourth issue, has not been made public as vet; at the same time committees are at work everywhere hecause thev nave had an inKling that tins is to lie larger than any of the previous isiUCS, and to be raised in less time, from September 28 to October 10, is the date set. Prom a standpoint of local pride as well as national pride, we are peculiarly anxious to see Breckinridge county come out with living colors as she did in the Third Drive, and there is nothing to prevent our doing it if WC will each determine in our minds thai Breckinridge county WILL make up its quota.

Continued from page 1 assures an ample supply of oil for the refinery from its own wells. The farsightedness of the management in securing a ready to hand refining plant, at a resonable figure may be appreciated when it is realized that under present war conditions the construction of a new plant would have been impossible. As the work of transferring the plant is now go ing on, under the competent direction ot Thomas hi. Coyle, who has been secured to operate the refinery, the McComb Oil Company will soon be turning the product of its wells into refined products. The establish ment of the plant at Torrent will be followed by the construction of an additional plant for the manufacture of lubricating oils and parrafine wax. The enlarged scope of the com pany's business, which now compris es every essential branch of the in dustry has been followed by a change in the name to that of the McComb Producing and Refining Company. During the month of August several new wells have been brought in on the Adams lease which are producing from 75 to 100 barrels a day. It is significant also to note that not a dry hole has as yet been encountered. With the pro spect of increasing the number of new wells to forty or more within the next six months the McCombs is justified in beleiving that at least $1,000,000 worth of oil will be sold from tfie property within, a year Adding to this the profits of refining and marketing in its own cars, it easily takes rank as the foremost in dependent oil company in Kentucky. It must be remembered that the im mense acreage as yet undeveloped contain posibilities of future profi table expansion which can hardly be catenated. It includes over 17,000 acres in the Eastern oil belt. As a natural result the stock of the hfcCombi Producing and Refining Company has advanced with its con tinuous progress. It is now held at $1.50 a share which figure it will shortly he advanced and at this price otters a most attractive investment. Under the ableexecutive management of Abran Renick, the 1'resident of the company and the field management of C. McCombs, there has been an enormous increase in the total value the company's holdings and this has been accomplished without jeopard izing the safety of the shareholders interests. Futher expansion how ever requires an additional amount of working captial and this will be sup plied by the sale of additional stock yet retained in the treasury.
