The Standard Oil Company's gi3oline retails in 6ome portions of Indiana, Missouri and other states as low as 15 cents per gal Ion. Kentucky is a leading oil producing State. Much of it is refined in the State where it is produced, but gasoline is not sold eo low here, and why not? Ken tucky automobilists pay as much as 5 cents per gallon more for gasoline than other States weBt of us, and this without any cause other than we tamely submit to the outrage. Gasoline can be sold as cheaply in Kentucky as any other state in the union. The fact that it is not should be sufficient reason why the oil glut tous should be made do so. We used to have laws to prevent dis crimination of prices in different states, but where are they now? Raport of County School Board The Fowell County Board of Education is publishing in this issue a report of the receipts and disbursements for the past twelve months.
