Christmas was very quietly tpent in Clay City and Powell county. No serious disturbances. Several drunks tut cothin; like it used to be. None from Kentucky In glancing over the December loth issue of the Weather, Crop and Markets issued by the De partment of Agricuttue which gives car load shipments of fruits and vegetables of all the states, we see an apples were shipped from Kentucky either this year or last season. New York" with 17,832 car loads leads all other ftates three fold. Michigan ex ported 5,080 car loads while Maine was third of the. states with 4,300 car loads. In all of the vegetables listed Kentucky is shipping none of them. This is probably one reason why the Kentucky farmer is less prosper ous than his Northern neighbors, There is more money in raising apples thau tobacco, and more in producing a good crop of onions and potatoes than corn. Straw berries do line and sell well, yield ing a return of $500 per acre from the soil. Yearly Statements The Times will next week mail statements to all subscribers oue year or more iu arrears.
