I'd Twenty-seven Years Ago Today May If, lb'.M, just -J7 ears ago today, was a very cold, rainy day loch followed well up into the niaht. The next morning was Sunday morning, nd when the day dawned and people looken out they paw the earth covered with a enow fix inches or more deep. To fay the least, it look ed very distressing. Apple trees loaded with fruit were hent to the ground. Gardens were ruin ed, wheat, which was jointing, was weighted down to t li e ground. Many corn crops were up and looking well up to the ad ven of the snow. Of course there was no fruit that year ex cepting a few blackberries, hut field crops were good. On May 10, 1SSS a severe killing frost visiting us laid a worse destruc tion in its path than did the snow of 1S1U, hut it is not remember ed so well. Walnuts were in hloom in 'SS and all of them were killed as were all kindsof nuts. Thus hy turning our m m ory backwards we see this year is no exception to the seasons many years past.

Clay City Loses to Paris Sunday was the first game Clay City has lost this season, this owing to the ground rules at Paris on a ball batted in the river which runs along left Held. Ry a mistake of the umpire a ball batted in the river on foul territory gave Rati a home run and scored two runs ahead of it, making three runs in the first inning, which the umpire and the management of Pans admitted afterwards was a mistake, gave them the lead. Our boys got discouraged after this decision and did not e inc back in the whole game. We feel that our boys were not outclassed in any part of the game, except the pitching. Dud King from the White Sox pitched the game for Paris, and was their winning card. This being onl v one game lost out of three for Clay City, we still feel able to cope with any of our neighbors on the dia mond. Knight showed his mettle by fielding two hard ones going for the river. The home boys will go to Winchester next Saturday after another victory with the Hustlers. Freeman will be oji the mat for Clay City with Dil lon or Red in the hole. Off For Alaska John C.

"Perhaps It May Be You" When the snow mid ruin is fulling, Or the Min is tdiining down. Don't stand gossippin with failures Crowded on the bottom round. Climb on higher up the bidder, Where dwell both success and fame. b'enieinlu r tlmt if you'r h failure. You, yourself are most to bliim-1. Wade right in and keep on plugging, There is no such word a luck. Soon you'll be among the winners. Who have changed that word to PLUCK. "Io it now," must Im your motto, Don't on someone else depend. Leave it to the other fellow, And you'll lose out in the end. All it takeg is grit and courage, And a little common sense, What you are, lie right out with it, Never sit upon the fence. All the world respects a person, With the grit to dare and do. Someone' looking for a leader, And perhaps it may be YOC. liesprctfully dedicated to my friends who are Ikm sting Clay City. J.

Fowell county probably h a s ifLTi.ooO uf unsold road bonds; l'owell county probably has or will have July 1st idle la borers on account of the panic; Fo veil county has 100 miles of road needing repairing; Fowell county has 7,000 people who need good roads. Why would it not be a good scheme to sell this f :', 0'X i bonds, put the 1,230 idle laborers at work building the muds we so badly need in the various parts of the county. The net result would be: men who badly need work given em ployment ; business in the coun ty greatly improved; the roads improved; money put into circu lation where it will benefit every body; roads built where they will benefit every body: such ac tion will cause no increase in taxes: will take nothing from auvbody, but add to everybody's bett Ttnen ; both 'em;or r !y and permanently. We ask the ques tion then "Why not build the roads nw? Now while we not only need the roads but the job of buildir.g them too. The best time to do any job on hand is when we have nothing else to do. Then let's all get busy building mads, and building a living too, and at a time when living build ing is a very hard thing to do. Personal Paragraphs. A. T.

A FAKIRLESS SHOW A Tented ShowThat WillSpring A Surpries Something That The People Have Been Looking For Rryant oV Johnson's Combined Shows which are heavily billed to exhibit at Clay City for two performances on Saturday, May -'S, is one of the legitimate out door amusement enterprises of this country. It has a record of many years of continuous serv ice before the people of this country, and further has the dis tinction of being the very clean est tented exhibition that has ever traversed the good old Unit ed States. It has never allowed any gamblers, fortune tellers, fa kirs, no match penny devices no. ticket scalpers, no short change artists, no people to follow it from town to town with ques tionable prize schemes no street corner-ropers in, and i n fact nothing lint can in any way re- fleet on a lirst class, well educat ed, attractive and real entertain men enterprise.
