WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 10. 1919 And the fruit laden Autumn is upon us. ABOUT ONE OUR OWN. It is with pleasure that we reprint this praiseworthy notice clipped from the editorial column of the Frankfort State Journal concerning one of Breckinridge county's accomplished young women who is becoming very well known over the State for her journalistic talent. "The Lexington Herald Says: The Herald staff welcomes back to its professional family Miss Eliza i'iggott. of Irvington. graduate of the University of Kentucky with the class of '19 and former state editor of this paper. Mss Piggott resumed that desk with the current issue. Few young newspaoer work ers in the South have disclosed finer vision or more marked ability in the broad field of her choice that she has disclosed already, and fe.ver still have entered with more accurate conception of its demands and its possibilities. "In accepting this position in Lexington Miss Pirrgott is probably the first woman in Kentucky and one of the first in the ration, to act in such a capacity typifying the advance being made by women in all lines of endeavor. Her success reflects credit on the Department of Journalism of the University of Kentucky from which she was grad uated last June. "The value of schools of journalism is now being appreciated throughout the country as a training ground for depth of thought, breadth of vision and a proper understanding of the great mission of the press. The American schools of journalism are being studied throughout Europe with care because of their eminent success. In some of the countries of the continent it was tried once and found un successful. The chief fault there was insufficient emphasis of the practical phrases of journalism. "The schools of the United States were established with a view to correcting this deficiency. Although in it infancy the journalism department of Kentucky's first institution of learning has given proof of its worth and justification of the principles that are its foundation and promises a great service to the State." FARM AND STOCK The Bible should be read in every public school every morning. This would do more to check the development of wild-eyedhair-brained bol shevistic socialism than any other one thing The American nation was founded on the principles of the Bible. As literature alone it deserves to be taught; as a code of ethics and morals it stands alone.. The American people should not calmy see the foundation principles of American life at tacked by alien interests. Read the Bible in the public schools. For twenty-five years, The Breckenridge News has been advocating good roads. They are now in sight. For fifteen years or more we have been advocating water-works for Cloverport; in another five years we believe we will have them too. It's a long time to work and to wait for a thing but the best things in life come through working and waiting. In another year we hope to see a fine concrete bridge spanning Clover Creek in our city. But in the mean time something should be done by the town and county to repair some of the dangerous places in the old bridge. Too many school children cross the bridge daily to let it be in such an unsafe condition as it is now. From the amount of traveling that has been going on this summer it looks like everybody is trying to see America at one time. A. V Skillman & Son were-deliver-ing their wheat Monday. They had 1,100 bushels. o o o S. C. Dowell, Irvington. went to Cannelton, with a car load of wheat, o o o We saw more good cattle in the fields along the railroad in Breckin ridge county than on our entire trip to Boston. Crops are looking better too. We are behind that country in farm improvements and good roads but nothing else. o o o John Jarboe. who farmed with Gid Squires, near McQuady, was deliver ing his crop of tobacco to Beard Brothers. Monday. He had 7.000 lbs. Price til round. o o o Mr. and Mrs. Sam Hendrickson. Chicago, were in Hardinsburg, Mon day. They have sold their place on the pike to his brother. O. W. Hen drickson for $2,50o. o o o Miss Bertha Jarett, of Stephens port, was in Hardinsburg. Monday shopping. o o o J. H. Gardner has cut and housed his crop of Burley tobacco raised on his lot back of his store. He had 800 hills and has a standing offer of $'5 round for it. Mr. Gardner cultivated it with a garden plow and hoe. o o o Richard McAfee, of Stephensport, was here visiting relattres last week. He is 77 years old and has raised an acre of Burley tobacco this year. Says he did all the work with a gar den plow and hoe. He thinks he will have 500 pounds. Wonderful work for a man of his age. o o o Gus A. Shellman has sold his cor ner lot in Hardinsburg to Dr. Lex for $2,500. The lot is 50x100 feet and one of the best corners in Hardins burg He offered this lot before the I Federal Highway was designated through Hardinsburg for $1,500, and ( couldn't sell it. This is a fair sample of how real estate is climbing up not only in Hardinsburg, but all along the Highway. Or Lex will erect on this lot a fine store house. o o o A Farmer's Creed. 1. I believe in red clover, in white clover, in sweet clover, in cowpea.s, in soy beans, and above all. I believe in alfalfa, the queen of forage plants. LUCKY STRIKE CIGARETTE I believe in a permanent agri culture, in a roil that grow i richer ; rather than poorer from year to year. ! : I believe in 00 bushel corn and 40 bushel wheat and shall not be sat isfied with less. 4. I believe that the only good weed is a dead weed, and that a clean farm is as important as a clean con science. 5. I believe in . the farm boy and the farm girl, the farmer's best crop and the future's best hope. fi. I believe in the farm woman, and will do all in my power to make her life easier and happier. 7. I believe in the country school that prepares for country life, and in a country church that teaches its peo ple to love deeply and live honorably. Bishop and Payne are painting the County bridges. They say they need ed painting badly. There are 20 brid ges in the county and it will cost nearly $200 each for material and work to paint them. Thoughtfully planned, convenient ly arranged, and carefully construct ed buildings are as essential in the country as in the city. a Mr. Jonas Lyons has sold 150 acres of the Ditto farm recently purchased by him to Mr. Lawson for $30 per acre.

No tice the flavor the whole some taste of Kentucky Burley tobacco. Why do so many "regular men" buy Lucky Strike cigarettes? They buy them lor the special flavor of the toasted Burley tobacco. There's the big reason it's toasted, and real Burley. Make Lucky Strike your cigarette. J Ouarontaed by It is not often that the annual meet ing of a learned society marks an epoch in the life of a great Nation, j Such events usually excite no one ex- 1 cept the little circle of savants in charge. Yet the annual meeting of the American Chemical Society at Philadalphia this week should be a milestone in our development. The chemists have come back from war and are planning for the future. Before the war Americans did not take their chemists seriously. The delvers in the laboratory had seldom touched popular imagination. They were good plodding chaps, of course. So people thought. But the career of a builder of bridges or of a mining en gineer had more appeal No one seemed to care very much of the pur suit of chemistry, lige the making of dictionaries, was left to foreigners. Then came the blockade. German dyes and German drugs were cut off. Fabrics on returning from the laun dry showed scant traces of the colors they had been when new. Physicians were hard put to it to treat their pa tients when the left-over bottles and boxes were $old out at the drug stores. We began to see that chemis try mattered. The war was a chemical affair. The gas department of the Army snapped up all the chemists it could find. They stood the test and contributed largely toward winning the war. Our gas was "good" as the military men say. It was a terror to the enemy. The chemist has as much or more to say to a people at peace as he has had during the past few years. He can make the soil work overtime. He can help his hungry fellow man to new sources of food supply He can find out what makes us sick and help us to get well. He can clothe ug in bright colors that do not run. In a factory he is quite as much of a modern necessity as an employment manager. And the chemists have only begun their application of science to life. They are custodiana of the magic of the future.
