Accompanied by two friends, Miss "jnritzi Scheff, the accomplished and talented songstiess who gave the leading part in the production of "Glorianna at the Lexington Opera House last night, visited Paris yes terday and placed a beautiful floral offering on the grave of the late John Fox, Jr., in the Paris Cemetery. Miss Scheff came to Lexington sev eral days ahead of the company, and lias been the guest of Mr. and Mrs. Syerette Fox, in that city. "While in Cincinnati recently Miss Scheff said to a newspaper man: "I had expected to leave the stage for ever some years ago. That was when I married John Fox. That was another chapter of my life that has "been misunderstood. But John Fox is dead, and all that went before doesn't matter now. Only it hurts for people to think I- didn't care. John Fox was not only a rare artist, but he was one of the noblest and most lovable men in the world that is, the John Fox of the mountains. Translated to city life, however, he "became altogether different. For his ake I was willing to give up the stage and live in the wild mountain country around his estate at Big Stone Gap, Virginia. I would have "been happy if he had continued to write. But both- ot us could not af ford to let our arts grow rusty from disuse. I know he had the genius to do great things, far greater than I could do, and my dream was to abandon my own career and encour--age him to write more great books like "The Trail of The Lonesome Tine." My dream didn't turn out that way, that's all." TBEPABE WHILE YOU CAN; COLD WEATHER COMING. Our car-load of stoves and heaters "have arrived. Buy now. Have them l?ut up while you can. (28-tf) A. F.

Automobile Delivery ,. . , MAKING BARYTES SHIPMENT Not until recently has it become known generally that a new enter prise had been in operation for some time in Paris, and that it has all the earmarks of success. The old lead mine in East Paris, which was open ed some years ago and worked for a time by local capitalists, is now be ing made to yield large quantities of barytes, a mineral that commands good prices in the markets for vari ous purposes. Mr. Collins, a mining expert from Denver, Colo., who has had a large and varied experience in mining propositions, is engaged in working the lead and barytes veins in this old mine, and is making a success ot it. Large quantities of ore have been taken out and shipped to a large smelter in St. Louis, Mo., where it is prepared for commercial uses. It has been stated that preparations are under way for the installation of up-to-date machinery for getting out the ore, and that a force of min ers who understand the business will be brought here to work the mine. Yearo ago a local syndicate head ed by Dr. Washington Fithian, fa ther of Chas. N. Fithian, of this city, worked this mine with more or less success. Later it was taken in hand by a geologist from West Vir ginia, who pronounced it rich in lead,zinc and barytes. The mine was worked again for a short while, but tho-work was finally stopped and the mine sealed up.

In his charge to the grand jury Judge Stout laid particular stress upon the fact that they shouid con duct a rigorous investigation of any charges of profiteering in any lines of merchandise that might be brought before ttiem, especially in matters of food. He told them that a profiteerer 'was distinctly a crimi nal, no matter what his station in life might be, and that as such they ought to be vigorously prosecuted by the courts and the grand juries.

They have made a brave effort to pubh J;he work forward as fast as possible, but the rains have hindered and impeded the work, as the men will not work in the rain. An effort was made to continue the work Sunday, so as to take advant age of the good weather, but wao stopped by the city officials. The square from Seenth to Eighth, on Pleasant, has practically been com pleted, and had good weather con tinued the concreting would have been carried past the Government building, at present a street full of mud, sand, pebbles and rubbish. It is ferventiy hoped by business jnen and others whose business takes them tc the postoffice frequently that the weather man will let up, and give the contractors a chance to push the work forward. -' . STATE BOARD OF HEALTH AD VISES ABOUT DIPHTHERIA Diphtheria is reported as existing in more than half the counties in Kentucky. It is epidemic in several of them. This is not a cause for senseless alarm, but for intelligent action. More than half the 249 deaths which occurred from this disease last year were in children whose parents failed to call a phy sician during the first three days of the sore throat. The greatest Amer ican authority speaking of diphthe ria antitoxme, says: "When the remedy is properly used on the first day of the appear ance of the membrane in the throat, there are no deaths from diphthe ria. When delay in its use extends to the second day, the death rate runs from five to ten per cent; when it extends to the third or fourth day, it runs up to thirty, forty and even fifty per cent."" The following definite sugges tions are offered by the State Board of Health to teachers, parents or guardians for the suppression of diphtheria: When a child has .a sore throat it should be excluded from school, kept at home in bed, separated from other children, and the family phy sician called. This is essential if there are whitish spots in the throat. Specimens should be taken by the physicians and examined in ap proved laboratories or sent to the State Health Laboratories at Lex ington or Louisville for free exam ination. If the case is at all suspi cious antitoxin should be adminis tered at once, 5,000 units if seen on the first day, and from 7,000 to 10, 000 units if seen later. This dose should be repeated in six hours if the membrane is nqt getting small er. Antitoxin is furnished by the State Board of Health at "greatly re duced prices to physicians and Boards of Health.

WE KNOW MOW Any Tailor Can Make Clothes; Only Master Tailors Can Make Our Smart Clothes! c4 carpenter can make a piece of furniture that may look well and last a few years. But the furni ture that we prize most, the pieces that have been handed down through generations fas heirlooms, is the work ot cabinet makers men who knew wood, how to season and work it according " to the grain, and how to join it so the joints would hold. So good clothes are the product of good tailors our Smart Clothes the product of the best tailors. Every operation, from the shrinking of the woolen to the fastening of the buttons, is the work of an -artist in his special field each doing his bit for the ultimate accomplishment of the perfect whole. Our Smart Clothes inherit a tradition that has been handed down through generations of the same families working side by side in the shops, and the record of the grandfather is a constant incentive to -the son and grandson.

Mir crop from Cuba is expected to enaWr sugar bowls to resume their' usual place on the dinner tables and res taurants and hotel tables. Wholesalers are swamped withr ders for sugar and sales are lintitttf to one hundred pounds to the cusrto mer. All sugar is skipped out a rapidly as it is -received. Several, grocers were almost entirely without sugar last week, and in order Jo make the amount they have' on .haai go as far as possible sales -haT. been restricted to two pounds to the- customer. As a result "dessertlea days" have made their appearance again at some boarding houses Thanksgiving feasts will not he as sumptuous this year as previously, and Christmas candies will likely come high and in small quantities Even when the Cuban sugar comes on the market, the product will not be as plentiful as it once was, be cause of the tremendous demand by all European countries. The Sugar Equalization Board issued a statement ' explaining that it has no control over the present beet crop and is willing that it be sold anywhere in the United States. The explanation is made t correct what is termed a prevateat: impression that the Board has. con fined sale of beet sugar to certaim. prescribed territory. LEATHER.
