Why should Mexico appeal for for eign capital when it has about four pttols of its own? It is strange what little space the Servian campaign occupies in the war news, and yet there is where the whole trouble started. Mr. Carson should be informed that the reason we are not over In Europe advertising our "business" 1b that we are too bulsy attending prosperity banquets. When the average fellow atends one of those "prosperity" banquets Qnd gets a few drinks under his belt . r-not "grape juice" he don't care a d whether he Is prosperous or jtot, and he is, if he isn't . In order to help the railroads pot of the trouble caused by the ad ministration's anti-trust legislation, -the Inter-State Commerce Commis nion will allow them to advance -freieht rates. In the mean time Xhe people pay the bills and wonder what new assistanccc (?) the Presi-1 dent and his Congress is about to render them. From all accounts the loose leaf floor sales of tobacco at Owensboro are very unsatisfactory to the grow ers. The latest excuse for the low prices offered is that too much to- beeco Is being offered at one time This is rediculous when we remember that the buyers know how much to bacco they want and the quality. The truth is there is no competition In-this plan. There Is perfect under Htandlng among the "bidders." Bid ders Is a joke. The only way to re lieve the market of congestion and relieve the "bidders" of embarrass- ment Is perfect organization tiiion the part of the growers.

VVKATS TMK MATTKIl WITH THU ivm:1 status. "What is the matter with the United States?" As I have been residing In London wince the beginning of the war, I have ben hearing this question asked on jtll 6ldes. I have never heard any fiatUfactory answer. No one seems ,to know. Why are the American factories not running night and day? Why are the railroads not opening up new except Hie army of unemployed. How territories and getting ready for tho lever, leaving out the dead, wounded millions of immigrants who have al ready made up their minds to leave Kurope as soon as the war Is over? Why are there not fifty American drummers In London right now, try ing to sell $200,000,000 worth of American goods In place of the goods ihot were bought last year from fjirmany and Austrlu? Why have advertisers become quitters, Just at tho time when their idy rtlsemnts were most needed and wost effective In cheering on tho bWiiness forces of the United States? Krom the European point of vlow, the United States Is a haven of peaco Bd security and prosperity. It has hc troubles that It dare mention to Belgium or Aiibtrla or France or ! and tho railroads would open up new Oermany or Servla or Great Britain territory, sure enough.

I wnnlil let them see graves 100 yards long and full, and Helglum, the country that wns nothing now but 12,000 square miles of wreck age. Then, when they began to under stand, to some extent, the magni tude and awfulncss or this war, I would say to tltom: "Now go back and apreclate the United States. Realize your oppor tunities. Don't start digging trench- es when nobody Is tiring nt you. Don't fall down when you have not ! been hit. Don't bo blind to the most glorious chance you have- ever had in your life. "Go back anil advertise, uct reauy for the most tremendous business boom that any nation ever had. Build your factories bigger. Train more salesmen. Borrow money. Go ahead, and thank God that you are is at peace, at a time when nearly the whole world is at war." The above article, written by Her bert N. Carson In the Associated Ad vertising, was taken by this paper from the editorial page of the Louis ville Evening Post, an ardent sup porter of. the present administration and its policies. It is the most crush ing criticism of the free trade tariff law under which we are living, or existing, which has yet been printed. "What Is the matter with the United Sates?" "Why are the American fac tories not running night and day?" Go ask the owners of the fac tories why they are not running night and day, or even by day", and they will tell you they are not run ning because under the present tar iff law they cannot run when the war Is over. As yet no one will in sure them how long it will last. In fact they had ceased to run months before 'the war began. They dare not go ahead "building bigger fac tories" and "borrowing more mon ey" in order to produce goods which, made with our high priced labor, they cannot compete with those made by the labor, paid paup ers prices, in Europe. When the war Is over those laborers will be paid even less than ever, by reason of enormous taxes levied on capital in the countries at war. "Why have advertisers become quitters?" Mr. Carson should send these questions to President Wilson !a'"' tho Congress, now in session. He has depicted conditions here which the President and his friends ure denying exist. Have they not been holding "prosperity" banquets? Sure ly he unemployed will all find work after these banquets are over. When son-in-law McAdoo has taken his pen In hand and solemnly writ "pap" that good times are here, surely no We have thrown awy our homo market to catch at a foreign market a delusion and a bnure. Now, wo have neither. Our factories are eith er closed or running on a "hand to mouth" schedule. Wo aro all proud that wo aro at peace, but we must pay a war tax of $100,000,000, which will, finally, principally fall on poor people. We have no "battle fields 150 miles long" and no army to speak of, and dying, this country has suffered almost as much from a financial and business standpoint as any nt the nations at war, from the smashing of our protective tariff by the Demo cratic administration. There ure more men begging bread In the Unit ed States to-day than In Belgium. If Congress would repeal the Un derwood tariff law and re-enact the old law every factory In the United States would be running on full time In less than thirty days, and if all parties would by common consent agree to quit fooling with the tariff for ten years tho "tremendoua busi ness boom" would be on . Every coal mine would run six days In the week, Slicing stocks with labor ness. or tunro properly speaking have linen nut out of business, by the no.1; tariff law and before the war com meiiced. Our laborers must suli mlt to Kuropcan standards In wages and when this takes plnce, with the present high cost of living, wo will have riots from one end of the, j country to the other.

The funeral of Bobert T. McMurtry, the sheriff who was shot and killed by Turner Graham, Jr., near hero Saturday, was conducted yesterday by the Rev. I. E. D. Andrews, pastor of tho Baptist Church here and the Bev. W. P. Stuart, of this place, and at the cemetery by the Masons, of which order Mr McMurtry was a member. The large Baptist, church was crowded and many failed to find even standing room within the church. It was one of the largest assemblages in many years at a lo cal funeral, notwithstanding the fact that the thermometer registered but little above zero: Sheriff's Sale.

Everyone who knows anything knows that the prosperity of our country is based on crop conditions. Then if you read, you know that this year's crop is the bumper in the history of our country, so that is why we have made this year no exception in increasing the quality and quantity of our Xmas line. Our prices have always been lower on the same goods than those in larger cities, but this year we have made some marvelous reductions. You will be convinced by a visit to our place. Now, we will not endeavor to enumerate the hundreds of things suitable for presents for anyone who you choose to give to, but a few are: The new style Necklace, Diamond Kings, Diamond Jewelry, Bracelets, Set Rings. Wedding Kings, .Mesh Bags, Toilet and Manicure ?ets, Cut Glass, Silverware, Watches and Fob?, Lockets, Cull' Buttons, a pair of U lass es for mother or father. It is useless to go further enumerating the many, many appropriate presents but earnestly urge you to at least make our store a visit simply for inspection.. We will not urge you to buy, but say now that it is. very unwise to put nil' shop ping as late as usual, as many wholesale houses are out of many articles made in Europe now.

Colonel Goutlials, Governor of tho Panama canal zono, toilay reiterated his re quoHt that two torpedo bout destroy ers lie sent to eanal zone waters to prevent violation of neutrality thru the misuse, of wireless and thu tak .Iiik on of supplies by belligerent vessels. Ilecauso of the confidential nature of Colonel Goetlial's dispatch. Secre tary Garrison declined to mako It public. He Issued this statement: "The substance of the dispatch Is that, In Colnol Gouthal's judgment, thu misuse of radio communications within canal waters and the preven tion of the misuse of these waters as a base of supplies, requires the presence of swift moving ships of the variety mentioned. Since the ques tions involved require the considera tion of the Stato eDpartment and the Navy Department, as well as my own, I have taken the matter up with the other departments, and as soon as the requirements are fully ascer tained, proper action will be taken to meet them." Secretary Garrison declined to dis cuss the situation in the canal zone or to indicate which of the belliger ents was violating the neutrality of the United States. It is known, however, that the Australian collier Mallina, which re cently left Ilalbou without clearance papers, lias been under close obser vation by l'auauiu canal oltlclals. That ship, as well as other" colliers, have been suspected of supplying Drltlsh ships In Pacific waters. Alleged violations of the canal zone shipping regulations have been tlie Dasls or strong representations to tho British .Minister at Panama. The l.amsou, Worden, Terry, Per kins and Walks Charleston, S. C, ure in reserve at and one or more of these vessels could be dispatched to canal waters almost instantly. On the Pacific coast thu nearest eratt available are the Whipple, Paul Jones, IVrry, Preble and Triixton, all lying off San Diego. fr .Master Cnmmlssldiiei's Sale. Ohio Circuit Court, Kentucky. C. M.
