Having been selected chairman of
the Dcmacratic Campaign Committee
of our county, I take this method of
announcing to you my pleasure and
willingness in cooperating with you
in organizing our forces for the com
ing election.
We realize that we have always
been very much handicapped by be
ing in the minority. This should only,
stimulate us to work the more for(
our cause. By recent legislation, laws
have been enacted by which the good
women of our commonwealth liavc
been permitted to cast their votes in
elections for their choice. We ex-,
pect much and great results for our
ticket from this source. The standaid'
bearers of Democracy have stood
hand in hand for purity and a high-!
cr standard for politics, ihey have
fought almost to a man for the suf
frage of women. This realization is
no longer a dream, but a fact.
We anneal to all trood women read.
think and study for themselves. Tbfs
we think will guarantee our Demo
cratic nominees their support,
Our campaign committees in each
voting precinct will soon be nanu'd
a goodly number of women will be
represented on each committee. I beg
of you your cooperation in organiz
ation and your influence in espousing
the cause of Democracy.
The voters of our county have al
ways been very liberal with me in
their support for which I am very
grateful. I shall expect all Democrats
to lend their energy.
Let your pride appeal to you; let
your duty govern you; let Cox Beck
ham and Johnson be your slogan; let
fifty-fifty for Breckinridge county be
your goal. Sincerely,
Vic Robertson, Chairman Breck
inridge Co. Campaign Com.

One notcablc feature of the Mas
onic picnic in Hardiusburg, Saturday
was the after dinner speaking. After
a few of the local Masons made short
talks, an address was delivered by
Mr. Chas A. Mahan, State Leader of
County Agents, who outlined the at
titude of the Extension Division to
ward the Farm Bureau. Following is
Mr. Mahan's address:
Why a Farm Bureau?
"We have had various efforts in
the past to get farmers together and
in theory it is the thing to do yet in
practice it has in some cases met with
disappointment. No claims of people
have depended so fully upon charity
of the other fellow giving him justice
as the farmer. There may be several
reasons for this. One of them is the
isolation of the farmer in his daily
! work. We have at the present time
many farm organizations, such as,
the Grange, Farmers Union, Equity,
Farmers Elevators, Live Stock Ship
ping Associations, Fair Boards, etc.
Each of which has some particular
field of activity and let us hope each
succeeds in their one great field of
endeavor where all may join jn as
sisting in a common cause leading to
betterment of the farmer in order that
' be may live better and share reason
able profits.

Why We Can Cheerfully Pay You Four Per Cent on Your
Savings and Time Deposits
Tempus fugit, the old Roman said, and as time flies old customs and canditions of necessity change that if we are to keep up with the onward march of
progress we too must carry the torch onward and upward. This institution prides itself on being a forward looking institution and as a result of present bank
ing conditions feels unqualifidely able to give its depositors a larger rate of interest on time deposits that ever 'before.
Its Officers and Board of Directors are United in a liberal Policy, witholding nothing from its
Friends and Patrons that in Consideration of Sound Banking Principles is due Them.
Compare the present statement of the Bank of Harbinsburg & trust company with the statement of thirty years a;o, and it can readily be seen why a larger
rate of interest is due our depositors and friends
