Possibly before the year is out there will be important contributions to the story of the causes that led up to the declaration of war in 1914. It is of the greatest value to the peo ple of every nation that these addi tions to the sum of knowledge be made. The very recent and quite re markable open letter of Prince Henry of Prussia, to his cousin, King George, of England, furnishes an in stance in point. Angered to the core by the pro posed trial of his brother, the for mer Emperor, before an international tribunal, the Prince hotly suggests that other offenders against the world's peace be placed in the dock and be compelled to front the evi dence taken from the old chancel leries which relates to the prepara tions of the conflict. In warning to the English Sov ereign he utters the reminder of the aneetings held in Balmoral Castle -with Sazonoff, the Russian Minister f Foreign Affairs, in 1912, at which there were discussions of the war and the fate of the German merchant ma rine. If it is true that the German diplomats secured at JPetrograd and Moscow, at the' time of the overthrow of the Czar, the secrets of the Rus sian intrigues with other friendly nations for advantage, it is quite pos sible that the Prussian Prince is in position to make some disclosures that will not sit agreeably on the stomachs of mankind in general. No matter what the results may be, it is to the interest of the human race to have these dark secrets of diplomacy ventilated. It withstood the material effects of the war, and is surely strong enough to receive without injury the facts concerning the bringing on of that mighty struggle. The Country Town Belongs to the Country. The country town is a part of the country. It is one of the encourag ing signs of the times that country town business men are coming to re alize this. It has not been so long ago that every little town thought that its business was to grow into a city just as soon as possible. Some town and many town people still think so. Many small town people, too, still think that their chief rela tions and interests are with the cities rather than the country. The most far-seeing business men have come to know better. They are seeing more and more clearly that the town, the small city, is an integral part of the country, that it prospers only as the country prospers, and that it is its place in the scheme of things to be the life center of the country about it. The town merchant who opposes co-operative buying of selling by the farmers of his territory, the town banker who would hinder the estab lishment of farm loan associations in his county, the town editor who neg lects the interests of the back-country districts, and becoming more and more out of date. Best of all, town folks are coming to see that they are out of date. Not until the country and the country town learn that they are yoke-fellows and must pull to gether before either can make the progress it should. And both are learning. Coal Users, Play Safe! "Buy coal now!" is the serious ad vice of those in a position to know the present and future state of the market. No mistake can be made by playing safe and filling the home cel lars and the factory bins. Lack of railroad equipment, the emigration to Europe of hundreds of thousands of miners and other la borers in the American coal fields, the larger demand because of the re habilitation of industries, and other factories made certain the shrink age of the supply of coal this winter. Last winter was an exceptionally mild one, and it is indeed a hazard to think that 'the coming winter will be a repetition, and there was no plethora of coal a year ago. Even should the supply be beyond expecta tion we are assured by experts that there will be no reduction of price four months hence. It is the part of wisdom to lay in a supply of coal now. JOHN FOX, JR., LEFT NEW NOVEL UNFINISHED. John Fox, Jr., the famous writer of mountain novels, left a new novel only lacking the final chapter, ac cording to his brother, Horace Fox, who arrived in Asheville, N. C, last week to testify in a case before the United States district court. Mr. Fox stated that the book is now in the publishers' hands and that they will select some writer to write the unfinished chapter, which had been sketched by the late writer before his death. The brother of the famous author says that John Fox, Jr., suffered last fall from Influenza and that he had apparently recov ered when he was stricken with double pneumonia and died suddenly. The famous novelist was well known In Asheville, having been a frequent visitor there. PARIS TESTIMONY Home Proof, Here, There and Every where. When you see Doan's Kidney Pills recommended in this paper you most always find the recommender a Paris resident. It's the same everywhere in 3,800 towns in the U. S.

Heller, prop, meat mar ket, 722 Main street, says: "I have used Doan's Kidney Pills a few times in the past and have been greatly benefited by them.

AnvnaTr iffava I rjiigmeer aim v-iujr aiivj.jjv;j nwv - strueted by the Paris City Council in its regular bi-monthly meeting. rnursaay nignu to araxt au urumauve to submit a bond issue for an addi tion to the sewerage system of the city and to report at the next meet ing. There has been a strong demand among residents in the surburbs for several years for an extension of the sewerage system to their neighbor hoods and it was in just consideration of their needs that, the Council voted to submit this issue 'to the-public. The final draft will be offered the Council on Thursday, August 28, and it is expected that? the issue will be placed befoie the people, in the early fall. If it passes, ,th'e sewer construc tion, under the supervision ' of the City Engineer, will be started in the near future. The Council was unusually active Thursday' and passed 'a number of bills which had been deferred for several weeks. In fact it was said by many to have been the busiest session conducted for many months. A bill was introduced by Council man Merringer to give the City At torney proper authority to collect pledges made by the property owners abutting Duncan Avenue for the lay ing of that street with Kentucky As phalt. Some of' the pledges, it was said, had never been paid. The measure was passed. As a result of a recent act of the Council the police, firemen and the mnerintendent of street cleaning will now be paid twice a month. Heretofore they had received the pay in monthly installments. Police Judge Ernest Martin made 'is report for the month of July and the report showed that the amount of fines imposed in his court was $144 and that the total collected was U40.50. Mr. Ralph Fields, of Lexington, was employed to act as speed traffic officer and he has been vested with the full authority of a member of police force. He had been temp orarily appointed by the Emergency Committee when a number ot pro tests on automobile speeding from citizens of the city had been filed with Mayor January. The council deemed that his work was satisfac tory and that a permanent traffic officer was needed on the police force. The Improvement Committee was authorized to purchase a car of road oil to give the street surface a coat ing. As soon as the purchase has arrived the work of spreading the oil will begin. The Committee was also instructed to investigate what would be the cost of a storage tank, in which to hold a reserve supply of oil. They will report at the next meeting. It was moved that the bond of Burks & Co., of Louisville, which firm was awarded the contract for the construction of the concrete strets, be accepted. The measure was passed and the work on the street will begin immediately. Chief of Fire Police Swift McGold. rick was given permission to attend the convention of the National Fire men, which will be held in Louis- Jville, September 10-12. Firemen from all over the United States will attend this meeting and modern ideas on the prevention of and fighting fires will be discussed. The city of Paris will pay Mr. McGoldrick's ex pense while attending the conven tion. BEWARE THE AFTERMATH The people of the United States are rapidly coming to realize that the world's need for saving and economy did not end with the war. This con tinued necessity for thrift is vigor ously presented and emphasized in a pamphlet written by R. H. Brand, a British economist, and published by the British National War Savings Committee. In this pamphlet, called "The Financial and Economic Fu ture," Mr. Brand calls attention- to the fictitious character of the appar ent prosperity brought about by the war, and warns against the fallacious appearances of war time progress. "We have been enjoying the tem porary prosperity of a spendthrift speeding toward bankruptcy," he says, "We have been living easy be cause we have been living on our capital. When we come to live on our income and not on our capital we shall find that the hard lessons of the past apply also to our own days, and that nations as well as individ uals, can make good only by work and saving." The burdens of saving to put the world on a safe financial and eco nomic basis, Mr. Brand declares, must be shared according to the abil ity of individuals to bear them, and the greatest sacrifices measured at any rate in worldly wealth must be made by the rich. The United States Government an ticiptated this situation and inau gurated a National Thirft Campaign during the war by placing Thrift Stamps and War Savings Stamps be fore the public. These securities serve a dual purpose give the Go- eminent money for the reconstruc- tion period and erect a foundation for individual prosperity. U. S. TIRE MEN CAREFULLY TRAINED. A conference of the service men of the United States Tire Company was held recently at the company's Hart for factory. The gathering included men from every States. The service men from that part of the company's staff which advises the consumer of the best means of getting the most miles out of his tires. The confer ence was to acquaint the service men fully with the leatest devolp ments in tire manufacture and the best means of avoiding tire trouble. o The idler and the slacker are of no use in this world to-day. KENTUCKY SCHOOL PUPILS PLAN BIG THRIFT CAMPAIGN r Foundation for a wonderful cam paign that will carry the message of thrift into every home in Kentucky is being laid by the War Savings Or ganization, under the direction of James B. Brown, of Louisville, who was appointed State Director for the Blue Grass State by Federal Director L. A. Wilson, of the Eighth Federal Reserve District. The school is the instrument chosen through which to drive home the lessons of saving. During the vacation period the teachers insti tutes are held in every county. Each one of these institutes is attended by A. J. Jolly, in charge of the educa tional work in Kentucky, or one of his assistants, and the teachers are enlisted under the banner of Thrift. Teachers are shown the advanta ges of saving. They are shown the vast advantages offered by the War Savings Stamp offered by the United States Government. They are in structed in Thrift Stamp movement, whereby the pupils can invest their quarters and watch them grow into $5 government bonds. The War Sav ings Stamps, and the new issue of $100 and $1,000 Treasury Certifi cates, with identical features of the smaller War Savings Stamps, are also dwelt on. In fact, each teacher is instructed, and in nearly every institute in Kentucky this summer, every teacher has signed a pledge card agreeing to devote a certain time to instruction in thrift and to organize a War Sav ings Society in his room when "books take up" early in September. Mr. Jolly in a recent visit to head quarters at St. Louis, said the re sponses of the Kentucky teachers had exceeded expectations and he was satisfied that more money would be saved by pupils during the next scholistic year than any other year in the history of Kentucky. The demand for cents, however, is due to the war tax and not to thrift or the increasing number of children. Quick Deliveries By TRACTION EXPRESS Ky. Traction & TerminalCo. NOTICE!
