HutchcFaft, wasborn in.aris, Kentucky, on December 15, 1886. received his early training- in the '-local schools and at a tender age gave promise j of those splendid traits of mind' arid heart which later 1 in life so distinguished him. In 3.903 lie entered what was then old Kentucky JJniversity. He was grad uated therefrom in 1907with honors, receiving the' "degree of Bachelor of Arts. He became- a 'post-graduate student in Harvard University the 4 same year, specializing in political economy, msiury sum guveuuucuu '''YlVJav ftVUnwfner vonp' Vt& VP"3Tl t.hft J.UO 1U11U II lUf, J v,ii , ww wu. - 'study of law in the Harvard Law JSchodl. He graduated in the sum her of 1911 with the degree of Bachelor of Law! While at the Uni--versity he' was actively interested in Massachusetts politics and the public questions of the day, and though merely a school boy, earned for "him 'self u reputation as a political think er; speaker and debater that- few men, at any age have equalled. His H&rvard career throughout was dis tinguished. In his senior year he became an associate editor of the Harvard Law Review. The articles contributed to this magazine by Captain Hutchcraft are keen legal studies, and promise a splendid scholarship for their-author. 'After graduation CaptainHutch--j-aft began the practice of law in Paris, Kentucky, in the fall- of, '1911. He was an'able and resource ful practitioner. Though a young lawyer, he became interested in much, important litigation. Mr. Hutchcraft was attorney for the con testees in the liocal Option Election Contest case of 1914 and very suc cessfully in all courts upheld the le gality of the election. Although a first-class, technical .lawyer, Captain Hutchcraft was professionally inter ested mainly in problems of State, and political and governmental questions. And for their solution he was equipped with a. superbly train ed scholarship and "a wonderfully acute, logical and analytical mind. His opportunity came soon. . In the fail of 1913.be was nominated and elected without opposition to the office of Representative of Bourbon County. Again in 1915 .he was elected to the same office. He at tied two sessions of the General A embly of Kentucky, in 19 14 and 5 010. He was a member at the v SpWal .Session of 1917. As a Rep resentative he was interested in and responsible for much of the legisla tion of that period. His Legislative Tecord throughout was a brilliant one. He was a constructive states man. Recognizing fiis ability as an expert on the subject of taxation, the Governor of- Kentucky in 1916 appointed Captain Hutchcraft one of I the four House members of the Kentucky Tax Commission. It was the duty of this Commission to write a new Tax Law for the Common- -. wealth. "'How well it succeeded and ..- b'ow well Captain Hutchcraft 'suc ceeded, may be inferred from the fact that the law as drafted by the Commission was adopted without material change by the Legislature at i. the special session of 1917. ' fu 1915 Captain Hutchcraft ' was appointed to the Chair of Law in the 'Law.. Department of the University of Kentucky at Lexington. He held ' 'this position -two years and resigned in order to answer his country's bu gie call. In the early spring of 1917 he entered the first Officers' Training N Camp at Fort Benjamin Harrison,. ' and' upon completing the course, was 'commissioned a First Lieutenant. IP. the early fall of the same year he was ordered to foreign duty. He saw active service from the start as a 'First lieutenant, afterwards Cap tain, in the 166th U. S. Infantry, a regiment of the famous Rainbow Di vision. He went into battle with. America's first combat troops, and was actively engaged until his death. He was killed in action November 6, 1918, near Sedan, on his country's K furtherest advanced battle line. He passed on, almost at the supreme pno- ' rnent of victory, just as the weary guns were -about to grow silent, and when healing peace was already on her way earthwards. He sleeps his peaceful soldier sleep near where he fell, "somewhere in France," in a spot that is and shall ever be a part of Kentucky. Such, in brief, are the facts in the life of Captain Hutchcraft a life of service crowned with, a hero's death. He is,survived by his mother and far ther and two sisters, who in his death have suffered the most grievous loss of an only son and brother. . Therefore. Be It Resolved: That in the death of Captain Hutchcraft ytrareaved family has lost a loving and -dutiful, son and atender and af fectionate 'brother; the County of Bourbon, one of her most distin guished citizens; the Bourbon and Kentucky Bar, an able and brilliant lawyer; the Commonwealth, a most competent and efficient Legislator; the Cause of Legal Education in Kentucky, an eloquent advocate; a host of friends, a warm-hearted, gen erous companion; and the Nation at -N Large, a brave and gallant soldier. Be It Further Res61ved: That thase Resolutions be spread upon the records of this- Association and of the Bourbon Circuit Court; that a copy of same besent to each newspaper in. 'Bourbon. County, Kentucky, for publication therein; and that a copy of same be sent to each newspaper family. - v E. M. DICKSON, DENIS DUNDON. DAVID D.

Believing that a former order of the City Board of Health strongly urging the importanse of innoculation with the Rosenow-Mayo serum as the safest known niethod for protection against influenza and pneumonia, has in a large measure been disre garded, the percentage of innoculate children in the various rooms of the City School being about six, and in further view of the fact that the Board finds many cases, though mild, which might have been prevented, respectfully calls attention to the fol lowing communication: Bowling Green, Ky., Jan. 9, 1919. THE STATE BOARD OF HEALTH. THE ROSENOW MAYO VACCINE Dr. A. H. Keller, City Health Officer, Paris, Ky. As requested, I am sending you the Rosenow-Mayo Vaccine for preven tive inoculation against influenza, and especially against the types of pneumonia which have caused most of the deaths during this epidemic. Dr. Rosenow says "This vaccine is pre pared from pneumococci of the vari ous types and allied green-producing streptococci, from hemolytic strept ococci, staphylococci and influenza bacilli, as isolated from the sputa and lunors of cases durine the nresent epi demic of influenza and pneumonia." I Dr. Rosenow advises that individu-j als be given three inoculations, one week apart, in order to get the high est and most enduriner immunity. There is usually no reaction from the inoculation except in persons about I to come down with influenza, and even then the disease seems to run a i shorter and milder course and com plicating pneumonia seldom occurs. As a treatment during an attack of influenza the dose indicated on the label is to be given daily for three days and, although some reaction may follow, many physicians report excellent results Jin relieving the in fluenza and in presenting pneumonia. As to the preventive value of the inoculation, the records in the office of the Surgeon General of the Army, dealing with a division of 27,000 troops in the early stage of the epi demic, show that of 12,000 men who received the inoculation 8 developed pneumonia, with no deaths ;of 15,000 not inoculated, 800 developed pneu monia, with 120 deaths. The Equit able Life Insurance Company re ports its use in 20,000 of its policy holders and their families, and the Mayo clinic reports its use in 20,000 cases, each without a death. At the Homestead Steel Works; near Pitts burg, of 7,651 employees of 1,687 who were not inoculated, 558 develop ed pneumonia and 42 'died; of 4,72Q who were inoculated, 66 developed the disease, with no deaths. Many similar experiences might be given if space permitted. Not a single case of harm from its use has been reported. With the approval of the Surgeon General, the entire army has been inoculated. This Board after the fullest investigation endorses its use by every person 'in Kentucky who is not certain that he or she has re cently had influenza. It has already distributed 250,000 doses, and will gladly send it free to any physician who will keep a record of its use in each case, on blanks furnished for that purpose and his promise to re turn them to Bowling Green for tabu lation and study, and for the use of Dr. Rosenow, 60 days after the last dose is given. Dr. South, here, has entire charge of the distribution of the vaccine and it will prevent delay and confusion if all requests for it by letter or wire, are addressed to her. Also, on ac count of the scarcity of glassware, please mail all vials and containers back as soon as they are emptied. Very respectfully, J. S. McCORMICK, Secretary. C. G. DAUGHERTY, J. M. WILLIAMS, JO VARDEN, Board of Health A. H. KELLER, City Health Officer. "UNCLE BILL" SCHOOLER GOES BACK TO SOMERSET William F.
