J. E. Burgher, Publisher. We are Here to Help Clay City, the Surrouiding Country and Ourselves. PUBLISHED EVERY THlffiSDAl VOL. XXVII- CLAY CITY. KY.. THURSDAY. I'OliUAKY L J01TJ. V Evolution This subject if creating quite a stir in Kentucky just now. With the defenders of the bible nit mie side nd the subjects of evolution on the other sine. There seenm tn he (piite ;i variation he I a'hcii the two. The hihle teaches that (im cren'd man in his own im ai:e evolution tenches man to havt originated from brutes, a n d guesses at winch specie. It is lin h "-ilde to believe the teach ins of that part of evolution and t lie hihle too. It is unlawful to teach th hi hle in the schools supported hy the State. A hill has heen introduced to place the same restrictions on that part of evolution that con tradicts the hihle. A man who will sanction a law to prohihit the teat hinz of the hihle in state schools, and favor anfi hihle teachings as to the creation of man in these same schools has already demon strated one thing, he is really sincere in his heliefthat he has liru'e parentmre. Nothing is so harmful to the hihle, nothing is so degenerating to the human mind, and its con ception of self. This doctrine is the fore runner of atheism, and infidelity. It should he curded hy law. Jail Breakers Caught In Clay City Wednesday niydit of last week live men escaped from the Irvine jail. Two of t he men, Amhrose Lynch, charged with forgery and Puzz Henry, charged with whis key operations, made their way to ('lay City w here they have rel atives, (ireen Covey, U. 8. Dep uty Marshal and .John Rowland, special deputy, followed them here. D. H. Hurt arrested the men on a hack street. He had A. (i. ShinifessH qualified as his deputy who assisted him in his arrest. They took the men hack to Irvine that night. The jail de livery was ell'ected hy sawing seven-eights steel liars in two. Blaze in Shimfessel's Store Early Tuesday morning a blaze was discovered in O. Shimfessel's store which caused considerable damage before it could be extin guished. The bucket brigade put in effective work in u very short time. Many of the goods were carried to safety, taking no chances on the fire gaining head way. This fire is a reminder of how badly we may need a lire department and more especially water works. Stops Up Road liev. (ieo. W. Mcintosh has put a fence across the new road on the Powell side of the Irvine road. The liev. Mcintosh agreed for the change in this road under cerain provisions for change of fence and new fencing, all of which was started in good faith, it is claimed, hy the good road people, but evidently has chanir- ed his mind. His fencing this road greatly damages those per- sons who have put up their cash to put the road through. Bus Line to Winchester Mr. C. K. Mize, who for the past year has carried passengers to all sections radiating from Clay City in his trusty Kurd, will shortly put on a motor bus line between this city ami Wim'hes ter. The bus will leave Clay City some time after the down train runs and go direct to Win chester. It will return in the af ternoon hefore sun down. This will he of great convenience tojtucky at as low price as any sold every body who wishes to go that way. It will at. least enahle them to go and come in daylight. Mr. Mize together with doe Mount, the Foul agent, left tn. day for Cincinnati to get a new Ford Chassis. They will go from there to Greenlield, Ohio, ami get a new hus body for the ma chine. When the new hack .'ine is put into operation an effort will he made to connect Stanton with jitney service.

Stock Sales Don't forget the pubic live stock sales in this city Saturday, February 20th. Let every body who has stock to sell bring them in and everybody who wants to buy live stock be on the ground, and in this way help to build up for Powell county something of value, lieinember free lottage and free weights. Ground Hog Day Today is Ground Hog day and a ininy day from beginning to en,, N Io"k out for t,,e w ter he foietells. Hut surely the day was more enjoyable than one cloudy he could not see his thadow. A Kentucky Proposition The Great Southern Infilling Company, of Lexington, has en tered the Powell county field for the delivery of their products ttluegras Gasoline, Movoline Motor Oil ami kerosene. The simple fact that their oil is pro duced in Kentucky, is refined in Kentucky, is owned hy people of Kentucky und their products are as good as any delivered in Ken- in Kentucky, is just reason that their gas and oils should he used hy all the people of Kentucky.

Card of Thanks Through these columns we de. sire to express our thanks to those persons who rendered assistance in the sickness and death of our dear little daughter, Georgia Mav. We also desire to thank Uro. Nelson fur the words of comfort spoken in his remarks at our home before laying away the precious one. Mr. and Mrs. Otis Powell. Vote on Bond Issue Abandoned The proposition to vote ten millions in bonds for the Ken tucky I'niversity has been aban doned. We failed to see why this school should be given any thing, if they continue to tearh that man originated from a mon key or some such other beasts. One-half t h e Christian people would not think of sending t heir children to this school where they receive such obnoxious and silly teachings. Road Bonds Not Popular There is considerable senti- nient aj:amsr the lifty million I dollars road bonds becauee of t he (defection of those in charge of their buihling in the past. The cost has ben too hiirh. P.etter wait until we learn how to build roads economically before we put thirty years tax into them. There has been a great slump in price in Kordson tractors as will fie seen in the Ford man's-ad. today. The Fordsou is a remark able machine at a remarkable price.
