CLAY CITY TIME
T J. E. Burgher, Publisher. We are Here to Help Clay City, the Surrounding Country and Ourselves. PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY VOL. XXVII. CLAY CITY. KT.. THURSDAY. JANUARY )','. JUSS. KO. a Ware-Hammons Mr. Roy Ware, the young son of Mr. and Mrs.MJeorge S. Ware, and Miss Alice II amnions, young est daughter of Mr. John Ilam mons, eloped Friday afternoon, planning to go to Jellico, Tenn. to pet married, both being under age. When Mr. CJeorpe Wre, father of the would-be-groom, returned from Lexington later in the day and missed his boy -and after beinu informed of the young people's intentions h e rushed by auto to Winchester and there overtook the young sters. He brought them back home that night. Parental ob jections vanished over night and the young folks, the next day, went, to Si'anton with consent of parents and were united in mar riage in the office of County Su perintendent, MissJWaud 1'owen, by Judge II. T. Derickson. This was the tirst nuptial knot tied by the new Judge but the new ceremony was performed as gracefully as if he were an ex perienced clergyman. The young couple left on the night train for Dayton, Ohio, where they expect to reside. 'Mobiling Spoiled The intermitting rains keep the roads in a plush and very slip pery. The autoists lind travel over puch roads very unpleasant and as a consequence their go ing is limited to almost a point of necessity. When the joy rid ing is thus stranded, the stocks of gasoline in garage tauks are easily maintained. This forced economy is helpful to Powell. So we are reminded of the lesson an old reader used to teach us, entitled, "Its an ill wind that Rlows Nobody Good." Excellent Bank Report The Clay City National Hank has one of their excellent reports in this issue of the Times. The report shows this resourceful in stitution to be in line condition, amply protected with a large a mount of cash in vault and on deposit, together with a nice re serve in Federal reserve bank, and a large amount of Govern ment securities carried. This all spells safety. Has Injured Hand Sterling Anderson is home on a vacation nursing a very sore hand occasioned by a small lac eration between two lingers w hile handling a power line on a lease at Fixer where he is regularly engaged. He will be here with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Charlie Anderson until his hand pets well enough to return to work. At this time it is giving him much pain. Public Sale January 20 At his residence in this city Friday, January 20, Mr. lieu Noe will have a sale of his personal property, and move to Couriers ville, Ind. Mr. Noe is a most ex cellent citizen whom we regret to lose. See advertisement of sale in this issue of the Times for list of articles for sale. Some Job But 0. K. Last week's issue of The Times which contained the Winchester Husiness Review is receiving many compliments. All of this work was done in this office with the regular force, and it appear ed promptly on time. This issue contained (511 inches of reading matter, not counting display ad vertising and reading notices. This matter was all hand set and wholly satisfactory to the busi ness firms represented. It would have been very difficult to have done so large a job in so short time but for the fact that it came just, after the holidays which found a very quiet period in this office. It is our intention to give a business review of our neighbor, Mt. Sterling, next week. This should also be interesting read ing for our subscribers. Extra copies may be had by speaking for them by Saturday of this week. Stockholders' Meeting The stockholders of the Clay City National Hank held at the banking office Tuesday re-elected the old board of directors viz: A. T. Whitt, James H. Hall, (i. D. Hieronymus, Geo. Hon and M. II. Courtney. These directors then immediately held a meeting and elected James H. Hall, President, (i. I). Hieronymus, Vice Presi dent and Harry L. Russell, Cash ier. Powell Boys Improving Jim McKinney, who has been confined at the Hush Hospital with typhoid fever for fhe past two months, will be able tore turn in a few days, according to recent information received from Winchester. Harlan Walters, alsoan inmate of the Hush Hospital,-is recover ing and will soon be able to re turn to his home here. Our Representative Fares Well Our Representative, W. T. Mc (Juire, has fared well in the ap pointment of committees. He will serve on the committee of Classification of Citiesand Towns ; Chairman of the Forestry Com mittee. He also holds a place on the committee of Public Hridges, Racing Committee, State Univer sity and Sinking Fund. Buys Farm in Indiana Hen Noe purchased last week two tracts of land five miles from Connersville, Ind, a t a total price of $8,100. Twenty-seven acres of this land is excellent bottom land on White riyer. Mr. Noe will move to this farm about the first of February. Mr. Noe wa in Indiana last week and made the purchase of this land. Ben Noe Sells Farm Hen Noe sells his farm of about sixty acred to A. T. Whitt for $0,000. Possession February 1st. This farm is just out of the city limits and is most nil bottom land. It is regarded a bargain at the price. Tinkering The Tax Laws" There is the usual talk about changing the tax laws heard ev ery time the Legislature is about to meet and as nearly everybody thinks they are unjustly taxed, the agitation of the question seems to meet the general ap proval of the discontented. "It was 'taxation without rep resentation' that induced the American Colonies to throw oil" the yoke of bondage and this seems to have been succeeded by 'taxation with misrepresenta tion' in these latter days, judg ing from the character of the complaints heard." So says a bulletin of the Kentucky Tax Reform Association which is a strong advocate of classification for taxation. The Association also believes farm values are none too high and not unduly taxed. Well, perhaps the farmers need uo consideration nor con cession from point of taxation, but if there was no tax whatever levied against the farmer for the next twenty years he would not be able to retrieve the losses h has sustained the past twenty months. Has any other business suffered so heavily in losses? No Legislation has stood on guard for all but the farmer. Even the railroads with inflated fixed rates have been given a guarantee of interest on their fourfold padded investments. j lie iarmer has been given no aid whatsoever The Tunes hopes to see this ses sion of the Legislature do its duty. Where is The Weather Man? The weather prophets who had us all badly scared in the fall when thev told us the winter would be unusually severe have certainly missed their mark. So far, it has been a wanner winter than last year, and that was the mildest for thirty years before. Hluegrass is furnishing good pas tures below yet and will continue to do so all winter unless this se vere cold weather forecast last fall comesaround at the last hour. While this warm weather works good in the saving ot feed, and coal, it works bad on the price of eggs and dairy products which is always lower in open winters. After all theie is but little ad vantage to the farmer in an open winter so far as dollars and cents are concerned. Jr. 0. U. A. M. Elect Officers At the regular meeting of the Jr. (). U. A.

Oil Prices Downward The effort to continue the ad vance on crude oil prices has fail ed and the price has gone ofr 25 cents per barrel in the last week.
