"In the mails which come to this

Saying Or Doing?
"Your actions speak so loud I can
not hear what you say," said Emer
son. Roosevelt put it another way
"Make your actions square with your
words." It is what we do not what
we say that is the measure by which
we are judged. No matter how we
may talk, if those words are not
backed by acts, all our professions
are in vain. There are people right
here in Paris who rant and talk
about the town and what should be
done to make it better. They can
tell all its good points and are
strong in their condemnation of peo
ple who are not "boosters" and
then the first thing we know we
find them sending their money to
mail-order houses or going to the
city to trade. Help your "Old Home
Town." The town that is good
enough to live in and make a living
in is good enought to spend in and,
you will find that your home mer
chant is no higher, quality consider
ed, than elsewhere. It is not what
you say about Paris, it is what you
do, and how you live to your own
Don't Stop Building.
The cry is for houses more houses
and still more houses here in
Paris. The cost of material and la
bor is high, but there seems no pros
pect that it will be lower and the
houses are needed right now. The
man who has contemplated building
should not be dissuaded by the cost,
for when the building is completed
the value is there . Many of our
citizens have been contemplating im
provements. It will be the part of
wisdom to make the improvements
now, for there is every chance that
next year will see materials and
labor even higher than at present.
We cannot look for cheap building
material. Our forests are denuded,
and there has been no substitute
found that will reduce the cost of
building. Nothing has been done
for two years to bring down ma
terial now, we must build more
This good old U. S. A. is so full of

among them being the turbaned, the

lating large gobs of land here is well.

All In a Day's Work.
A newspaper publisher has to do a
gerat many things in his calling that
are personally disagreeable to him.
To do his paper justice he at times
sacrifices friendships that are price
less. He is forced to forget himself
as a part of the machine. He goes
after stuff that does not interest him
personally a bit, but he does it as a
duty. Sometimes he is met by a
haughty grandee who wants to know
what business of his it is if he does
so and so, and the editor is given the
insult direct. But he doesn't pay
any attention to insults. If he did
he wouldn't last a day. In a little
country town these insults are borne
as a business policy but not always

Personally we preferred to let the
time stand as it was, even if we did
have to hustle out of bed an hour
earlier. The advanced hour got us
out of the daily grind with more
daylight at our disposal in the shank
of the afternoon, and that seemed to
have suited city folks best. Country
people, however, didn't look at the
matter from the same viewpoint,
and it was their attitude that caus

PORTRAITS OF RED CROSS
A request has been received by
officials of the local Red Cross Chap
ter from Dr. Stockton Axson, Na
tional Secretary of the Red Cross,
asking that photographs of the
Chapter's most prominent workers
be forwarded to the x Red Cross
headquarters. At a recent meeting
of the Chapter it was decided to
send photographs of Miss Ranah
Owens, Mrs. Owen L. Davis and Mrs.
H. Clay Howard.
The request, as stated by Dr. Ax
son, was made in accordance with a
plan to be put into effect for making
a painting to typify the work of the
womanhood of America during the
late war.. The face of the allegoric
picture is to be a composite of Amer

EXPERIMENT STATION WINS IM
A suit instituted last June in the
Circuit Court at Mt. Sterling by the
Kentucky Agricultural Experiment
Station, through its counsel, Mr. W.
B. White, against the C. W. Jean
Company, an Indiana firm operating
a number of cream buying stations
throughout Kentucky, for failure to
secure a license for their station in
Mt. Sterling last spring, was suc
cessfully terminated last week.
Judge Robert Winn, attorney for the
C. W. Jean Company, appeared in
open court and agreed that a judg
ment should be entered against his
client for the sum of $300 and costs.
This represents the first prosecution
brought by Dean Thomas Cooper for
a violation of the Kentucky Cream
ery and Tester's License Law, the
object of this law being to insure
fair dealing beaween the producer of
cream and the company buying it.
