When indigestion grips a man
And brngs from a wail,
On thoughts of Jonah he puts ban
And gives them to the whale.
By marrying again the former
Kaiser Wilhelm is assured of hav
ing someone around the place to
hear him talk about himself.
Of course, it is none of our bus
iness, but sometimes we wonder if a
girl -has to remove her wrist watch
-when the doctor wants to feel her,
There is -a woman in Frankfort
.-who for religious reasons has not
spoken a word in three years. How
many miserable married men there
are in Paris who would encourage
the promotions of such a religion.
The old-fashioned wife used to
fetch her husband's slippers after
supper. The up-o-date wife de

A Danish lieutenant is to become
a cousin of four kings by marrying
Princess Dagmar. But being a
cousin of four kings in these .days
of toppling thrones is like holding

"Uncle Joe" Pitman, of Rockcas
tle county, who at ninety-six marri-
a sixteen-year-old girl, was a
hravk man when the Civil War be
jgan, according to his military rec
ord, and he is a brave man, too,
as the record will show in 1922, to
brave the unknown.
,A Philadelphia divorcee who gave
her age as thirty when license for
vher second marriage was applied for
5n 1920 gives her age as thirty
when a third license is applied for,
in Octeber, 1922. The mental res
ervation in each instance must
have been "and then some."
Henry L. Mencken, critic, is
quoted as saying the American peo
ple are the most timorous, snivel
ing, ignominious m(ob of polt
roons ever assembled under one
flag. Oh, there are lots of us so
brave that we don't mind admitting
that we never read a book or an
article by. this fellow, Mencken, for
construction and reconstruction.
T People on the streets Monday
saw a most unusual sight, in the
maay that can always be seen on
"Court Day." An old woman,
poorly clad, a long-stemmed pipe
in her mouth, came down the mid
dle' of Main street, leading a slab
sided "cow, by a long patched rope.
Behind the cow trailed a thin,
scrawny old man, who occasionally
gave a twist to the cow's tail as if
to encourage her to make better
time through the crowded street.
Behiad the "whole outfit trailed a
troop of disconsolate-looking dogs,
ia siagle file, followed by two
vrokisjs in tattered overalls. They
faaaaged to Teach the public square,
where they were lost' in the surg
ing crowd.
If it is true that Henry Ford has
bought $10,000,000 worth of coal
mines it cannot be much of a bunch
of mines, as $10,000,000 wouldn't
buy much coal anywhere nowadays.
A woman coaching women stump
speakers says: "When you have
nothing to say, sit down." Obedi
ence to the rule by masculine
stumpers would give many a man
who wants a seat in Congress a seat
in the campaign.'
p When I go nutting
In the wood,
The nutting there 1?
Not so good;
And so I leave the
Forest floor
And patronize the
Grocer's store.
A good many Christians pray
that the world may be converted,
and then sit down to wait for God
to answer their prayers. But if
they are farmers, they never pray
that God will plough their corn
fields, and then get up on the fence
and wait to see the dirt fly."
We hear complaints from Paris
motorists regarding autoinjobiles
and other vehicles not turning to
the right in passing another one.
Surely everyone- is familiar with
this simplest of traffic rules and it
must be pure carelessness or pure
cussedness that makes anyone per
sist in violating the rule.
A pile of junked automobiles is
not yet so common a sight as it is
likely to be in a few years. Most
automobiles are not yet worn out,
and many of the first million cars
are still running, though they may
have been rebuilt and made over
with new parts several times. It
it said that at current prices the
scrap from an automobile is hardly
worth the labor of making it. What
will be'come of the used cars when
there are two million or more a
year to get rid of?
Surely, the most carping critic
could find little to complain of in
the brand of weather Kentucky is
having just now. Beautiful, clear,
sunshiny, just enough of the au
tumn tang in air to make one step
lively, just enough frost in the air
to make life worth living, and there
you are in God's country. Our
friends who are hastening to-Florida
for their winter stay may be
missing something great, after all,
by not deferring their departure
until real winter comes.
The query department of this
great family journal has received
the following: "Should a gentle
man who is sitting next to you at a
formal dinner be intoxicated, is it
proper to take any notice of his
condition?" Our etiquette editor
tells us to inform this querist:
"According to the observance of the
proprieties required by good breed
ing, you should ignore the fact. On
the other hand, should he attempt
to blow powder from your should
ers, or try to undo your coiffure or
headdress with a knife, it is proper
to stand up, and pointing at him,
say: 'This bum has insulted me.
I am a lady, even if I am in soci
ety.' "
Joe Lavin, who is sojourning at
Hot Springs, has heard many good
things there. He says one of the
best heard there recently was this:
"A little boy from Canada, who had
never seen a negro, was riding in
Hot Springs with his uncle, one of
the old-timers, when he spied a
sleek colored woman crossing the
street near one of the busy cor
ners. He asked his uncle why that
woman blacked her face, and was
astonished when nunkie told him
she didn't black her face, that it
was her natural color. But the kid
was inquisitive and would not be
denied, and came back at him with
the question, "Well, nunkie, is she
black all over like that?' Of course,
nunkiesaid she was, and then
kiddie spoiled the whole afternoon
by sweetly but mischievously re
marking, 'Gee, nunkie, you know
everything, don't you? "
So Easy To Drop Cigarette, Cigar or
Chewing Hatot
No-To-Bac has helped thousands
to break the habit. Whenever you
have a longing for a smoke or chew,
just place a harmless No-To-Bac
tablet in your mouth instead. All
desire stops. Shortly the habit is
completely broken, and you are bet
ter off mentally, 'physically, finan
cially. It's so easy, so simple. Get
a box of No-To-Bac and if it doesn't
release you from all craving for to
bacco in any form, your druggist
wilUrefund your money without

When These Things Happened In
NEWS' Files?
There's no denying that to most
of us there is a certain satisfaction
in reviewing the events of long ago,
as they are presented to us, either . with oldest and largest company of

iscent strain of the moment. And come is $1.10 an hour. Are you do
