The splendid showing of one John Cripps Wickliffe Beckham, Democratic Senatorial nominee, in Montgomery county is due en tirely to the efforts of Messrs. Earl W. and G. B. Senff, who led the fight here for the former Governor. In recognition of a debt of gratitude of long stand ing these young men made a campaign here for Mr. Beckham that resulted in a majority ovei both his opponents of Hi votes, and, too, without a cent of cor ruption fund. They made the fieht along clean lines and ap pealed to the better element of voters only .with the result that their champion was. an easy fa vorite. Mt. Sterling Gazette. Custom of the Wobbler. Anent the recent primary and the nominee!?, Editor Steve Vaught observes in the Winches ter Democrat: "A Democratic paper, that is known to be Democratic to the core, that has never been any other way, does not need to :o-ne out in strong editorials, follow ing a Democratic primary, that it will support the ticket. That ought,to be understood." Attended Fair. Esquire T. C. Quisenberry, of Montgomery county, was n visit or in Lexington Friday and at tended the Blue Grass Fair. Justice Quisenberry called on County Judge F. A, Bullock and Other courthouse officials. Lex ingt Herald. ftjffiE The overwhelming vfctory of Senator Camden for the short term senatorial nomination can not be considered by him, his frends, say, other than a most fluttering testimonial and in dorsement of his prospective can didacy for the gubernatorial nomnation with which his name has been mentioned frequently, even beorc the death of Senator Bradly, which made possible his elevation to the United States Senate, where he has distinguish ed himself with credit and abil ity. The friends and admirers of Senator Camden insist that he can give Kentucky a business like administration of its affairs and that the vote cast for htm in the recent primary was in the na ture of a popular demand for him to become a candidate for Gev crnor next year as the one man who has well-settled convictions and ideas of State uplift and a. different brand of politics. Wiiile Senator Camden has all along re fused "to seriously consider or discuss the gubernatorial nomi nation, it is well known that tne flattering indorsement given him, a new-comer in politics, by the Democrats of Kentucky has made a deep impression upon him, and his friends and support ers feel much encouraged over the prospect of his acquiescence in standing for the nomination. Louisville Times. Is There Graft In It? , ,r; One of the most , .Vicious pieces of legislation' on our statute books today is our pres- on r school booH law. Last vear one could bu,y a first class priraei at retail for ten cents. Under this layone not a whit better sells (for twenty-five cents. The jyfice of all other school books 'has been increased and under this law the teachers must use these books. Every county in the State will, in this way, pay out unjustly thousands of dollars, yet the dealers arc forced to sell them on a-bcgarly commission and no blame should atach to them. The thought therefore occurs, who gets the difference? We urge our readers to care fully consider the annual finan cial statement! of the county, which appears in this issue. We have no fault to find with it ex cept the expenditures bn account of paupers continue to increase a'armingly. This, it is claimed, is due largely to the maintainance of an unproductive and very costly poor farm. Following the lead of Shelby and other progressive counties, the court at its last meeting ordered the farm sold and we hope to see a sub stantial reduction in this item of expense during the present fiscal year. Victory Assured. Kentucky Democracy redeem ed herse'f and honored her most worthy member by nominating J. C. W. Beckham for the United States Senate, as the Interior Journal believed so sincerely that she would. That he will win an overwhelming victory in Novem ber there is not the shghest doubt. He has never been de feated where the people had the say. Stanford Interior-Journal. OLYMPIAN SP&INSS. BATH COUNTY, KY. All rates reduced to $10, $12 and $15 per week, each.

Do not wave the arms, pamp the elbows, or wiggle the shoulders. D6 not whirl or spla. Bearing these things always In salad, It is a simple natter to- acquire the easy, graceful swlsg that Is a charac teristic of the one atep. In holding the lady do not wrap your right arm all the way around her. Best ths right hand on the middle of her back, not on her shoulders, as this tends to threw her left arm up too high. Bend the left elbow and hold her right hand on a level with the eyes and about three Inches from the head. Stand close to her, but do not hold" her tightly. The prime essential of good one stepping is to make every move correspond with your partner'a so that yon form an unbroken line whether dancing straight ahend. dipping or go ing from side to side. The first step is merely a walk In time to the music. Take steps in ac cordance with your partner's height i Another straightaway step that has I found great favor in New York and London Is the "lame duck." Tnis is danced exactly as the name implies. The man dips on the right foot 'and takes the usnal step with the left The action Is the same as If one leg were a few inches shorter than the other. Above all things, do not make this Jerky or draggy. It must bo a series of quick "but billowy dips and ! Is very attractive to watch when exe- I cuted correctly. A good step for rounding corners is taken from the tango. When nearing a corner turn the girl so that you are both facing In the same dlrectlpn and standing side by side. The man's right arm should be around the girl's waist and his left and her right hand clasped In front on a line and about a foot from their heads. Take three steps forward In this position. At the end of the three steps the man must hold the step for a beat while the girl swings on her left foot and resumes the former position, being face to face. If these steps are practiced assid uously and particular pains taken in regard to position and carriage, It will not take long to become proficient Be member that constant practice Is nec- essary In dancing as In everything else. , ' In the Trot to turkey trot Uffia Tbe Wt harnU tr .tfrfclt kaciyVa nwA Ata.tiAjl k.klnJ .1. llf K Bft. y's -a BBBBBBBBBBBBM ,iBBBB. w-" 'j f 4 t 1 " -''?' it CHEAP rARMtCNI F $3,W.W T0fMMMt To Loan on Land at Low Rate of Interest OH on It. .

A little village boy was given the stunt by Ws father to write an essay on 'editors, .and here is the result: "Don't know how newspapers came to be in the world. I don't think God does for he haintrgot nothing to say about them and editors in the Bible. . I think the editor is one o the missing links vou read of, and stays in me bushes until after the flood, and then came out and wrote the thing up, and has been here ever since. I don't think he ever died. "I never saw a dead one and never heard of Qnc getting licked. Our paper is a mighty good one; but the editor goes without un derclothes all winter and don't wear any socks and paW ain't paid his subscription since the paper started. I ast paw if that was why the editor had to suck the juice out of snowballs in win ter and go to bed when he had his shirt washt in summer. And then paw took me put to the woodshed and licked me awful hard. If the editor makes a mis take folks sav he oucrht to be hung, but if a doctor makes any mistakes he buries them and the people dassent say nothing, be cause the doctor can read and write Latin. "When the editor makes a mistake there is a lawsuit and swearing and a big fuss ; but if a doctor makes one there is .a fun eral, cut flowers and perfect si lence. A doctor can use a word a yard long without him or any body else knowing what it means ; but if the editor uses one he has to spell it. If the doctor goes to see another man's wife he charges for the visit; but if the. editor goes he gets a charge of buckshot. X. "When a doctor gets drunk it is a case of being overdone by the heat and if he dies it is from heart trouble; when the editor gets drunk it's a case of too much booze, and if he dies its the jim jams. Any old college can make a doctor ; a editor has to be born." Exchange.
