CANDIDATES FOR STATE SENA
TOR LOOMING UP.
A number of Bourbon county
Democrats have issued a call on
John T. Collins, of the North Mid
dletown precinct, and at present
resident of Paris, to become a can
didate for State Senator to repre
sent the district composed of Bour
bon, Clark and Montgomery. This
honor is at present held by George
Hon, of Winchester, who served in
ihe recent session of the Legislature
It has become the custom in late
years to alternate the honor of rep
lesenting this Senatorial District,
which will bring it this time to
Bourbon county. Montgomery coun
ty furnished an incumbent of the
office in the person of Hon. Will
Clay, of Mt. Sterling.
The call on Mr. Collins is but
ihe forerunner of others to follow,
as several prominent Democrats who
have served their party well and
faithfully will probably come into
the limelight. It's a little too soon
to make a choice, and there's plenty
of time in w.hich to enter the

PAINT-UP, CLEAN-UP CAMPAIGN
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
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
For several Winters Jos. W. Davis
and Dr. M. H. Dailey, of Paris, have
been rivals on their Florida vaca

championship fisherman from Bour

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

be disputed by John T. Collins and
Squire John J. Redmon, as told in
the following letter, to Mr. Davifa
