the October Woman's Home
Companion is a call to American

patriotism by supporting our
American industries. The auth

Another special war feature of
great interest is a French wo

ocratic primary.
Mr. Cox was bdrn in Hopkins
county, about five miles east of
Madisonville. His' father died
when he waB only one year bid
and he was left to fight the bat
tles of the world. He worked on
the farm and began teaching
school at the age of sixteen. Be
tween times he attended school
and secured an education. Be
ing ambitious1 he took up the
practice of law and for the paBt
twenty years has been recognized
as one of the leading. members of
the Madisonville bar.
The only office Mr. Cox ever
held was that of representative
from Mnhlenberg county in the
legislature. At the time he was
elected be was teaching school
and was urged by the democratic
committee to accept the nomina
tion. He was. elected in a strong
republican .county and served
with credit in the states lawmak
ing body.
Mr. Cox is a Christian gentle

was seriously, ill w,ith summer com

THE PUBLIC DEFENDER
The Public Defender idea
which Lob Angeles introduced
some time auo seems to be catch
ing on-and fast. Generally, the
East is slow to adopt anything
which originates in the West,
but the idea of having a court
official to defend, as woll as hav
ing one to prosecute, seems to
appeal to the Easterner' eence
of fair play, with the result that
in all probability a bill will be
introduced in the Legislature of
the State of .New York providing
for the appointment or election
of a judiciary official of this char
acter in certain municipalities.
Hon. Mayer C. Goldman, a
member of the New York City
bar, is the leader of tho move
ment in the East in favor of a
Public Defender, and has suc
ceeded in interesting both the
daily press and a number of the
influential magazines.
