Name Your Farm. Give the farm a name and keep the farm up to the name. A name gives distinction, it is an expression of honest pride, it is an expression cf honest pride, it shows an interest in the place. It means something more than so many acres of brown earth, a dwelling and barns. It means a place that one feels is in the best sense the home of himself and his family. Sentiment gathers around it and crystalizes so that at last the owner does not so much ask in declining years, how much can I get for my farm? but "who is going to succeed me on it?" And that means a deep eningnd strengthening of home ties and those of locality, both of which ara greatly needed in American rural life. But for practical reasons as well as sen timental it is wise to bestow a name upon the farm. No self respecting man would give a good name to his farm and then keep the ferm in poor condition. The sense of pride would prompt any man to do his level bestv That would mean better cultiva tion, house and barn painted, fences in good condition, better stock and better crops and more attractive appearance within and without the dwelling. There is scarcely a farm, however sit uated that some appropriate name may not be given it. Land scape, a spring, clump of trees, position, historic associations are among the many things that may suggests the name. And always remember this, that it is with the farmer more than anyone else, tests the solution of the problem of arresting the drift citywards. An attractive home, a home that has a distinctive ness about it, goes a long way toward the solution. Will Sloan's Liniment Relieve Pain?

An editorial in the July Wo man's Home Companion says: "Many men seem to take a certain pride in the fact that their wives have all the 'fresh ness and lack of experience of a little girl.' They think, because they iiave shut their wives off from any contact with real life, that they are better, more indul gent husbands than those who go to their wives at night with their troubles, and who never make an important business move without first planning it out at home, They are wrong. In the first place, they deprive them selves of a valeable asset in busi ness the clear, penetrating pow er of a woman's intuition. In the second place, it is no compli ment to a woman to keep her forever a little girl. Life is not! made rich by evading responsi bilities; the man" who shuts his wife off from his business be cause he wants to save her wor ry, and from child-bkaring be cause he cannot think of her en during pain, generally succeeds in giving her a sense of utter uselessness that makes her mis erable. And, in the event of his death, he leaves her problems with which she is utterly unpre pared to cope. "Many of the moral break downs occur, not in youth, but in the middlelife period, when habits are supposed to have been formed and character fixed. Youth is usually free from covet ousness and greed, Middle age is less likely to be. Almost ev ery week the newspapers report the financial difficulties, if not the downright dishonesty, of some respected man in middle life, who has sacrificed every thing in trying to get too much. "And we have noted tht such catastrophes take place less of ten in the families where the wife is fully acquainted with her husband's affairs." Constipation and Indigestion. "I have used Chamberlain's Tablets and must say they are the best I have ever used for constipation and indi gestion. My wife also used them for indigestion and they did her good," writes Eugene S. Knight, Wilmington N. C. Chamberlain's Tablets are mild and gentle in their action. Give them a trial. You are certain to be pleased with the agreeable laxative effect which they produce."

One of the Lake Supe rior copper mines ha3 reached a depth of 4,575 feet; the Sperem berg shaft, near Berlin, is 310 feet deep; the Schladeloch mine, near Merseburg, Germany, has gone down 5,528 feet, and the Paruschowitz mine, in Silesia, had to give up operations after 6,009 feet had been reached. The gigantic ropes can barely carry their own weight after they reach a depth of 6,000 feet, and are unable to carry a car riage besides. Moreover, min- Kentucky Fair Dates.

So far all delving into the ground has had a commercial ob jective; but the Austrian gov ernment has promised scientists to allow them to exploit, after the war, the Silesian mines for scientific purposes. Prof. Hanauer, of the Univer sity of Breslau, is promoting this investigation and has arranged to have "way stations" bjiilt along the original " shaft, and these can be multiplied. Ex actly how he intends to meet the temperature conditions has 'not been disclosed. Practical men hold that 6,000 feet is the limit of depth that can be reached in safety. -?

Editor News: In regard to crops will say we had an abundance of rain all hthe spring, but very dry now. Crops good as to whole. Early corn good, late corn needs rain. Acreage of wheat not near so large as last year, but good, and standing up so far. Some wheat in shock, some very green yet. A big acreage and good. Prices of all grain good, but not so high as last year, Gardens very good but the dry weather is injurious. In regard to the Railroad. I am always anxious to see the next report of it and also of the right of way. I want to say this much. I have one-half interest in as good timbered farm as there is in the Milltown section, and if it was where I could have the road to run through it, I would gladly give the right of way, enough for the building but no more. People, you should wake up to that fact, we need the road. If the people of Adair lived where it is as con venient and knew the value of the road to good Columbia and the people as we know it here, they would leave no stone un- turned until the whistle tooted for Columbia. Say, if you peo ple that are hesitating were here and went a few trips to Colum bia and get off the train at Camp bellsville and there was a slush of mud to Columbia and you strike one of those blooming old trucks with its burden of mail baggage and crowded pas sengers, and you get to Columbia with the seat of your pants worn thread bare from twisting and squirming and your legs cramped to your waist, you would say yes Lord take all you need and give us the road. Well, our relations with Mexico is growing brighter While Mexico needs a good lick ing, I am glad we are still out of trouble. I have one boy donned the uniform for Uncle Sam, was only 17 years of age, the 7th. Is now in training at Jefferson Bar racks, near St. Louis. It will be a great thing for our northern boys if they don't have to go in to Mexico this hot weather. Well I will not worry you any longer, and unless sickness or death calls me I will try to be among the first passengers over the new road to Columbia. Wishing you one and all health and happiness I will close for this time. Will say, tell A. W. Tarter, if he does not see this I- would like to be there and have one good old Fox chase with him. Try and have the R. R. done. I want to come home this fall Yours Respt , George T. Beard. m INFANTILE PARALYSIS BY STATE BOARD OP HEALTH. Bowling Green, Ky., July 13 '16 To the Public: Whereas, Infantile Paralysis, essentially a disease of cities and towns and of childhood, though sometimes occurring in country districts and in adults, exists in a severe- epidemic form in New York and has already spread to other sections, eight positive or suspicious cases having been re ported in this State within the last twenty-four hours, the dis ease having an average death rate of about 25 per cent , and a large portion of chose surviving being more or less completely paralyzed, and, whereas, every where the tentency of the dis ease is to break over official con trol and spread, especially in the presence of filth and flies in and about the homes, yards, alleys and streets, unless every case is rigidly isolated and all dis charges from the throat, nose and bowels are promptly burned or disinfected until complete re covery, and the assembling of children is prevented in really in fected districts, now, therefore, Be it known that the State Board of Health, in the exercise of authority vested it it by law, and in the discharge of a public duty, hereby urges and directs that the health and civil author ities of every city and town in Kentucky take immediate steps to clean all alleys, streets, ten ements, public places and vacant lots and, by rigid and systematic inspection, to requir the cleaning and liming of all back yards, cel lars and premises, and the thor ough screening of homes; al though in the presence of this emergency no good citizen should wait for the law to force him to an evident duty for the protec tion of his family and communi ty. In the existing emergency, visits of children under 15 years of age from infected or suspect ed cities should be discouraged, and, when permitted, the names and addresses of all such chil dren should be recorded in the health office. Upon the occurrence of a sus picious case it should be immedi ately reported to the health officer, and, without fear or fa vor, so rigidly isolated that no one can enter the room except the nurse and physician, and the house placarded, or preferably the case sent to the hospital, and all discharges burned or dis infected as in a case of diptheria and scarlet fever. All of this should be most thoroughly done or it will do harm by giving a false sense of securiay. In the event of the disease in any city or town, except it be an imported case which can be car ed for as above indicated, the lo cal authorities are asked to con sider to consider the advisability of restricting the assembling and travel of children in places of amusement, schools, on street cars and trains and, so far as practicable, on the streets. All health officers are required by law to report this disease to this Board, and- they are hereby rel quested to do soby wire at its expense. A bulletin containing more complete information on this subject will be mailed free to any address upon application. J. G. South, M. D. Presidenjt. J. N. McCormack, M. D. Acting Secretary.
