On Christmas day, 1812, a stringent manifesto was issued by the governmentjjabsolutelv prohibit ingthe people from indulging in the habit. This manifesto expressed the desire for thesuppression of the evil in order tojsave thepeople from a life of degradation, rnot by "tapering off," but by stopping the habit entirely. At thefsarne time the fear was voiced that, although the government was very much in earnest, the people would endeavor to evade the law. Indian opium to the value of $60, 000,000 was stacked at that time in chests in Shanghai and Hongkong warehouses; stacked there without finaing buyers. After the manifesto by the government it was practically impossibleSto buy or sell opium in the coast provinces or the Yangste provinces. But lastlweek an incident occurred that shows very grimly how earnest j the new government is in this matter. ! A woman of Shanghai, who openly per sisted in the use of the drug, was taken to a public place, by order of the governor of the province, and in the presence of a large crowd of spec tators was shot. To the occidental mind this will seem more than shocking; but perhaps the oriental government knows best how to handle its own problems. And in the matter of stamping out the opium curse. China has a problem that would cause any nation trouble. One Million Dollar Auto Show. West 5 Street We Take Pleasure. in "oing up the finest shirt waists or anything in the laundry line.

The Lexington Herald of Monday contained the followng mention in brief of various persons who have held the position of clerk of the Bourbon County Court. The Herald says: "Pearce Paton, clerk of the Gourbon County Court, has authorized the an nouncement of his candidacy for re election to that office at the t primary election next August. "Mr. Paton has made a very effici ent clerk, and has won popularity by his genial and accommodating manner. The County Clerk's office in this county is one in which frequent changes have not been popular. "It will be of interest to Paris read ers to know that from the beginning of the county in 1786 to the present .time, a period of 127 years, the county has had only ten clerks. "The first person to hold that office was John Edwards, who was elected in 1786. He was a man of considerable eminence and on the admission of Ken tucky to the Union in 1792, he was the first Senator from Kentucky. "Mr. Edwards was succeeded in 1792 by Thomas Reeder, who held the office until 1795, when Thomas Arnold was elected. Mr. Arnold was succeeded in 1803 by William Garrard, Jr., who re sicned on May 1, 1815. and was suc ceeded by Thomas Porter Smith. Mr. Smith was the father of the late Dr. Thomas P. Smish, of Paris, and the grandfather of Hon. Jonn S. Smith, formerly County Attorney of Bourbon, afterwards Commonwealth's Attorney of the district composed of Bourbon, Scott, Woodford and Franklin counties, and is now practicing law in Indian apolis. "Mr Smith held the office uninter ruptedly from 1815 to 1851, a period of thirty-six years In 1851, Mr. R. J. Brown was plected Clerk and held the office through the period of the Civil War Mr. Brown was a Republican, and at the close of the war was de feased by the late James M. Hughes, a Mexican War veteran, well known to all the older iesidents of the county. Mr. Hughes had opposition several times, but his popularity and the be lief of the people that the County Clerk's office was one that should not be experimented with too freely, always enabled him to secure re-election. He was Clerk for twenty years. In August, 1886, William Mvall. of Paris, was elected to the office, his op ponents for the nomination being W. S. Alexander, James Kerr, John S. Smith, K. K. McCarney and John W. Bouldn. Mr. Myall held the office for two terms, from 1S86 to 1895, and having formed other business connec tions, did not ask for a third term. Ed. D. Paton, popularly known as 'Bally' Paton, who had been Mr. Myall's deputy, succeeded to the office in 1895, having been elected the pre vious November. Mr. Paton held the o8jce until nis death on October 31, J 1908. when his son and deputy, Pearce raton, the preaent uierK, was ap pointed to fill cut the unexpired term and was tnen elected by the people apd afterwards re-elected. "J. Walter Payne, of Paris, has also announced his candidacy for nomi nation to the office." i. -r m 1 a.-. l.s. t .. i tj . r,nmo n nisrrcr now siruus u?

The craving of plants and trees for water has sometimes led them to ter rible extremes. A poplar has been known to burrow beneath a wall, un der a road, and down a well all in search of water, and a pertinacious turnip which got the tip of its root into the crack in a field drain went on and on until it was six feet long in the drain.
