THE CLAY CITY TIME
J. E. Burgher, Publisher. We are Here to Help Clay City, the Surrounding Country and Ourselves. PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY VOL. XXVII. - CLAY CITY. KY., THURSDAY, FEHKUAKY !). 1922. "KOl'-.C The Way Evolutionists Do Dr. Frank L. McVey, Presi dent nf the Kentucky University, of Kentucky according to the Lexington Herald has telegraph ed various educator? and preach ers of the country for an express ion of opinion on a hill in the Kentucky General Assembly pro hibiting the teaching of Evolu tion in the public schools of the state. The truth of the matter is, thpre is not now, nor has there ever been anv such bill before the State Legislature, and no body knows this better than the President of the Kentucky Uni versify. There is now a statutory law in Kentucky which prohibits the teaching of the bible in the pub lic schools of this State, which bible teaches that man was cre ated by God in His image. There is now being taught in some cf our schools and colleges, particularly Kentucky Universi ty, supported bv the state, a the ory that man evoluted from beasts of the fields. It is con clusive that when a person be lieves that, he originated from a lrute, he does not believe the t -aching of the Bible that he originated from (rod. Since the Bible cannot b e taught in the schools it is equally fair that guess theories that con tradict the bible should not be. Looking to this end there is a bill before the Legislat lire to pro hibit the teaching in our State schools the theory of evolution as it relates to the origin of man. Lovers of the bible want the word on an equal footing with in lidelity. The Times thinks i t should be. Perverters of gener ;tl facts as well as bible lads do not think so. The Light Plant Damaged The i.ev ligh: plant for Clay City was damaged in shipping, particularly the switchboard which was broken when it ar rived. An attempt to use it any way resulted in it catching lire and burning all the insulation from the wiring. A new board was telegraphed for Saturday and as soon as this arrives continu ous service will be resumed. This misfortune is very uisappointing to operators as well as the con sumers of light, but it cannot be helped.

Mize, the proprietor of the line, takes extra pains in making these, trips.

To Repair Bridge ' Judge Derickson and some of the Magistrates were here last week looking after the safety of I the county bridge leaving town over the new road. Thev found1 it in a very bad con litiou anujwj )(t kelJt aHy fnr ,,ree will rspair it at once. Four Moonshiners Arrested James (1. Fugate, a constable, of Powell county, Buss Sizemore, chief police, of Irvine, and dep uty marshals, Green Colby, Jesse Hamilton, Geo. Briniger, last Thursday raided three moonshine stills in Estill county, on Miller's creek and arrested three men, on the Miller, Prewitt, Gotf lease which Mr. Fugate is agent over, and destroyed four gallons of moonshine whiskey, Two hun dred gallons of beer and cut the still into pieces. The shiners ar rested at this still were: O.T. Whisman, Ova Oliair and Leon ard Arnold. Still No. 2 was on the property of ll. L. TliHcker and cut into pieces by the oilicers and Thaek er arrested, but did not find anv beer or whiskey at the still.

This is the biggest moonshine raid yet made in Estill county. More Legume Crops More legume crops on f Ken tucky farms is the one big hope in economically building up the State's soils to a higher state of fertility, according to recommen dations being made by soils and crop specialties at the College of Agriculture. Legumes, such as clover, add to the fertility of the soil by drawing nitrogen from the air while non-legume crops, such as timothy hay, wheat and corn, draw mi the soil for all their plant food, according to specialists. The extensive use of non-legume crops over a long period of years has proved a heavy drain on the fertility of Kentucky soils, they say. In pointing out the importance of legumes in a svstem of crop improvement, the specialists are showing farmers that more than two-thirds of the plant food con tained in clover is taken from the lir. Every ton of this crop takes only ?:U0 worth of plant food from the soil while the remaining SS.00 worth which it contains, is taken from the air. Spring Announcement II. F.
