Concerning the County Agent "The Times is in receipt of a letter from the Cooperative Fx. tension Department of the Col lege of Agriculture concerning the failure of trie Powell Fiscal Court to make appropriation f-T continuance of the "work started by our county agent, and believ ing it would be of Interest to a number of our readers, we are reproducing the letter below : "As you know, Mr. Harrison has beeu in your county for more than four years working with the farmers, the schools and up to thi time, the Fiscal Courts have not seen it wise to make m ap propriation for the work. The School Hoard and ,a number of the citizens have put up all that has been paid by the County to help in the salary of Mr. Harri son, aud all the while the College of Agriculrure has been 'paying a larger part of his salary. We de cided this year that we would uot continue the work longer un less the Fiscal Court would make an appropriation for the work. The court bad a meeting and fail ed to make the appropriation and I notified Mr. Harrison that we would stop work in Powell coun ty, but since that time, 1 have learned that there is quite a number of people that are not satisfied to let the work stop, hiuI feel that the Fiscal Court should make the appropriation we ask for, audI have been asked by 6ome of your citizens to make one more attempt to get the Fis cal Court to vote an appropria tion of $250, that we might be able to continue the work of the County Agent, and we have de cided togive the county another chance. We have asked the Fis cal Court a number of times to make the appropriation and this time we want you to ask the Court to do so, so if you ate in terested in the work, would like for Mr. Harrison to continue, see the Magistrates, tind out alien the Fiscal Court meets and get your neighbors interested in go ing before the court, and ask them to make the. appropriation aud we are ready to put up our patt of the money to carry on the work.

The citizens of this end of Clark county are very indignant at the decision of its Fiscal Court to re pair a portion of the road with slate as it did a few month) ago. They s--y gravel can b ob tained at a much less expense, and of course everybody knows . good gravel road is next to con crete. These good people feel that since the court can get a bet. ter road for less money than a bad one, it should give the mat ter the consideration it deserves. To put slate ou this road ami to leave it in tho manner it usu ally is left, means a dread to .mo torists who often ruin new tires in passing over sharp edges of the slate in the road. The people of Powell who use this road so much sincerely trust the Clark Fiscal Court will use the gravel we learn it can get. We know how much better a gravel road is than any. macadam, and how much cheaper and easier to maintain. E0SSLYN. Mrs. Mollie Mardis, of Coving ton, has been here visiting rela tives. Mr. and Mrs. C.
