1. E. Burgher, Publisher. . are Hers ta Hri Clay City, txa Surranitfut Ceaufcry ui Oortdvit. PU2UXHC0 EYEnY THUSSOAY VOL. XXVII- CLAY OITY, KT.. THURSDAY, NOVEMBER JG, J922 NO. 4G. Ky-Va Highway Association To Meet At Stanton The Ky-Va Highway Associa tion wi!l hold a meeting at Stan ton next Thursday, November Wid. This association has quite a large membmhip in all the counties from Fayette to the Vir ginia line. Hundreds of dele gates will be in Stanton on that day. We all want the road and that is the mission of this associ ation. (Jet it by 1025. Farm Work Advanced The beautiful weather has af forded farmers an opportunity to pet their work up. Most of them, in fact, are through husking corn and sowing small grain. Owing to the lack of moisture in the soil, small grain is very backward. Some gnod hog killing weather was with us last week, but few of the porkers were slaughtered, farmers preferring to take no chances on variations of the weather. In Hospital at Columbus A letter from Hood Patton, a Clay City boy residing at Charles ton, VV. Va., says he is now con lined in the hospital at Columbus, Ohio, where he underwent an operation some two weeks ago. He is now improving, and will doubtleKS soon be out. Hood has many friends in this portion of the county who will regret to learn of his recent illness. Road Work Halted Uoad work in one portion of the cou ty was abruptly tempor arily brought to a 6top last week when it was learned the right of way recommended by the engi neer i:i charge was not near wide enough. The land owner forbade the use of any land not paid for. This brings more expense on the county because of the inefficient estimation of quantities made. Irvine Defeats Bonds Irvine voted down $20,000 in bondsto build sewers in the town. Irvine voted several thousand dol lars in street bonds a few years ago. The streets have been built and worn out but the bonds they t-till have out. Votiug large bonds on small places, generally is an unwise thing to do. Baptist Meeting Sunday The monthly meeting of Clay City Baptists will be held Sunday. Pastor AV. S. Shearer will preach. All are most cordially invited to be present and worship with the Baptists on this day. Circuit Court Monday Circuit Court will convene at Stanton Monday with Judge Shackelfordlopreside. TheJudge was in Europe at the last term of court, aud he wai-grlatly missed. . Taking City Assessment Judge O. F. Rogers is busy this week takingjhe city assess ment. The tax lilts are running along about the same as usual. Fiscal Court in Session Tuesday The Fiscal Court was in session at Stanton Tuesday to adjust some right of way matter on our new roads opening and to transact other business matters of importance. The editor was present at this meeting which was the first of this court's delib erations we have had the oppor tunity to attend, and was well pleased at their fair and business like methods of doing the busi ness of the county. Clark County to Vote on Road Tax December 14th Clark county will vote on the proposition to levy an extra 20 cent road tax for two years. It is to be under stood that this tax is to be used to help the State and Government rebuild the Iron Works pike to the Powell county line. Two years ago this county voted a similar tax and built the road to the Montgomery county line, now they desire to come this way. The Times lungs to see this road improved. Powell's Corn Average The Government report on corn average production per acre for l'owell county place the yield at 20 bushels per acre. This is do ing Powell an injustice. The truth of it is, very few Gelds of corn in the county yield as low as 20 bushels per acre while many of them reach fifty and sixty bushels per acre. Richmond Court The East End yards court day reported C,000 cattle on the mar ket. The be6t grade brought 7; inferior grades 6old very low. MuIe6sold at much better prices than a month ago. Horses were very slow with few sales. Very few hogs were on the market and no sheep at all. Richmond Pan- tagraph. Liquor Quite a Factor Lax liquor laws are in demand in many parts of the country, and this sentiment elected or defeat ed many candidates committing Vh'emselves ou this question. The 1'iines favors no candidate that favors a leauing backw ard toward alcoholic drinks however low in percentage they may be. W e support the constitution in full. Saturday Sales Day Saturday is regular Sales and Market day for Clay City. Bring on your stock and other things you have for sale. If you have nothing for sale then come and buy something on the market that's for sale.

Want History Withdrawn From Schools The Kentucky Sons of Ameri can Kevoluiton charge that "Muzzey's School History of the United States" used by many of the city schools of the state is pro English and un-American, and therefore call upon all such schools to abandon this history.
