PAINT-UP, CLEAN-UP CAMPAIGN IN FORCE. Although the weather yesterday began threateningly it did not deter the initial work of the Clean-Up campaign, which has been designat eded for this week by official State proclamation, supplemented by proc lamation issued by Mayor E. B. Jan uary. According to these proclama.- tions the week of April 12 to 17, has been so designated. All the citizens of Paris, white and black, rich and poor, old and young, are expected to join the drive against the common enemy, dirt and filth, and rubbish of all kinds, so that flies, mosquitoes, disease and death may not follow in their wake, as is inevitable, unless the campaign is made a thoroughly effective one. The idea is to make Paris a safe and sanitary place to live "in, and if each citizen wili do his or her part, the success of the movement is as sured. Each one must resolve him self or herself into a committee ot one and see to it that individual premises are relieved of dirt and rubbish. After the premises have been thoroughly cleaned up and made more sanitary, paint and whitewash will go a long way to ward disinfecting- buildings and outhouses and making them more attractive and neater-looking. The city carts and wagons will attend to hauling away the accumulated tiash, on Wednesday aid Thursday, provided it is placed where the driv ers can conveniently get to it. Otherwise they will not make a sec ond trip for that purpose. BOURBON MEN CONTEST FOR PISHING CHAMPIONSHIP For several Winters Jos. W. Davis and Dr. M. H. Dailey, of Paris, have been rivals on their Florida vaca tions, in striving for the title of championship fisherman from Bour ton county. Many of the largest specimens of the finny tribe have fallen victims to their skill and the marvelous tales they have told of their experiences in vthe pursuit of big fish have entertained their friends. i Now, it seems that the title is to be disputed by John T. Collins and Squire John J. Redmon, as told in the following letter, to Mr. Davifa from George Sehon, Superintendent of the Kentucky Children's Home, at Louisville: "Hon. Joe .Davis, "Paris, Kentucky, "Dear Friend: l'am satisfied you have just received a tin type picture cf fish supposed to have been caught by John Redmon and John Collins. This is the most heterogen ous camouflage I have ever seen. For" instance, they have several lish that never bite at a line and you can imagine two fishermen go ing out? and catching croakers, and balloon fish, and several other type not recognized by Florida fishermen. "I have written them to-day tell ing them the picture they sent waj created for novices and that the Fame picture, with the same fish has been taken thousands of times. I have sent them a strong letter tell ing them to catch a few fish for themselves and have their own fish taken, I hope you will bless them out. "I feel sure th'ey will send this picture to people all over Bourbon county, where their characters are known and dozens of people will be lieve the fish are real. If you and I had been out fishing, do you think Ave would string the little fish and big fish together and put the large fish on the two bottom lines? In other words, fishermen string figh -he same size together. I hope you will write them at once and roast them, foi I do not want them to think they can palm off such a camouflage on us. "I am enclosing, you my picture, for fear you have not received one up to date. Please do not let an hour pass before you write them. ."Please hold the picture for me, sacredly, as I want to use it at the fish fry. "Yours very sincerely, "GEORGE SEHON, "Superintendent."
