H. Baker, a former resident of Paris, who is alleged to have victim ized any number of Paris merchants by passing worthless checks, and who was further "wanted" here on a charge of embezzlement and making way wiwi an auto belonging to Mr. J. M. Scott. While in Paris, Baker conducted a taxi cab business in a stand on Main street, between Seventh and Eighth streets. He also conducted a dry cleaning establishment on Fifth street, with the assistance of his wife, they apparently doing a. thriv ing and prosperous business. Baker sold out his dry cleaning business, and being an expert auto mechanic, took a position with the Oakland Garage, later embarking in the taxi cab business. About four months ago Baker is said to have purchased a National touring car from J. M. Scott for 33,200, making several small pay ments. When Mr. Scott was away from his place of business Baker disappeared with the car, "which he had purchased and another of the same make, valued at $1,800. All trace of him was lost until Mrs. Baker wrote back from Louisville to the people with whom she resided in Paris, asking that her clothes be forwarded to her at Louisville. The "Louisville authorities were notified and soon had "Baker under arrest. The machine on which he had made the payments, had already been re covered by Mr. Scott, and the second Tnachine had been sold to Magistrate Peake, of Louisville. Baker is said to be "wanted" in other towns, where he had left a string of worth less checks and unpaid accounts be Tiind him. Deputy Sheriff James Gibson, of Paris, was sent to Louisville to bring Baker here, but was headed off in Lexington, Sunday night, by a message from the Louisville au thorities stating that they had de cided to prosecute Baker on the charges bi ought against him there before turning him over to the Paris, Mt. Sterling, Lexington and Win chester authorities, where he is be ing "wanted." v NEW STATE PRINTER. THE NEWS has information to the effect that W. F. ("Uncle Bill") Schooler, editor and publisher of the Somerset Commonwealth, and one of the best-known journalists in the State, will be a candidate before his party for the office of Public Prin ter. Personally, privately and other wise, we say amen to "Uncle Bill's" candidacy, and commend it without hesitation. A better-equipped man for the position could not be selected. Schooler has been in the printing business from his infancy, and has filled many important and responsi ble offices in the profession. He was for a long time in the Government Printing Office at Washington, and has spent the larger part of his life in the newspaper game in this and other States. He has given his time and talents unhesitatingly and with out stint to the services of his party, and certainly deserves well at the hands of the powers that will be in control at Frankfort. His fitness for the position is unquestioned, and with him at the helm of the State print shop, the State will be the gainer in a business sense and the newspaper game will lose a good man, at least temporarily.

ELLIS' CASH GROCERY, (25-2t) Opp. Court House. o Since the establishment of the Massie Memorial Hospital in this city it has been an annual custom for the people of the city and county to donate supplies for the pantry just before the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday season. Their contributions have been the means of bringing good cheer to the "shut ins" at the institution and demon strated the truth of the old adage that "It is more blessed to give than to receive." Both work equally well in this case. The management of. the Hospital makes the request for donations for Thanksgiving as usual. Donations of potatoes, cabbage, flour, meal, meats, canned goods. preserves, jellies and all kinds of edibles are asked. They will be sent for if the donors will give their location, or they may be left at any store in Paris where they will be forwarded, if the Hospital is noti fied. Let us all give nice donations for this splendid institution. Every little gift will help greatly, and will help some unfortunate to real ize the goodness of Thanksgiving. Donations may be sent direct to the Hospital, or left at the C. P. Cook & Co., Lavin & Connell or Logan Howard groceries,, whexeu they, will be called for. o ALIIE JONES SELLS KING'S FANCY FOR $4,500.
