It had not occurcd since the crea
tion of the world and it will not
occur again according to the com

Lets Carry Out at Least
Some of Our Good
IWith the close of this week the old V s
year dies and the beginning of next
week marks the beginning of a new
year so now is a good time to
begin to form new resolutions not
or the purpose of breaking them in
a few days but for the purpose of J
living up to them and by so doing d
make ourselves and also others bets
tcr by it °
As a town the citizens of Bar
bourville should resolve that we will
not allow the nexr year to come to n
come to a close without our having
done something to try to benefit the
entire town Lets all agree upon S
this resolution if nothing more that n
we will make it a part of our busi
hess to see that some kind of a man
ufacturing plant is established in
our town before the end of the com
ing year
If we make that one resolution and
live up to it we will have done at c
least some good for ourselves and
for the town °
Let everyone who wants to see
Barbourville have a factory estab l
lished during the coming year ex °
press his or her desire on a post
card and mail it to the Advocate
and in that way we may know your u
wants and will publish the result
Do it at once Tell us your idea on

Fittingly Celebrated by Most
of Barbourvilks
Christmas was celebnatcd by most
all the churches and the citizens
generally distributing good cheer to
nil alike The hristtnns festivities
in the churches were most heautifn
and the little Sunday School folks
Hid their part in the 01 ening exer
cises in well re uln ted ordrr and the
little folk as well as not Allow of
the older people had a genuine old
fashioned Christmas feeling or the
little folks ol Harhourville
And some had so much Christmas
dispensed from the Little Brnwti
Jug which fixed them in good shape
to celebrate Christmas in a stagger
ing way under the load from the
wine cup but they were nil filled
with the spirits of good clieei to
their companions wlfo were also
filled ith the same kind of OldI

A Startling Report
IIt is somewhat amusing to see
how the Democratic press is trying
to stir up strife within the ranks ofp
tothe CourierJournal this week reaa
ports a breech between Caleb Pow
ers and Charles linley over the be
Judicial Primary when in facr there
no truth whatever in the report in
Mr Powers has gone to Washington
on some important business matters
and is taking no hand in the Pri
mary and as yet there is no other
candidate in the race against Judge
Pnmpson so that it is evident that at
the reported rupture between these
two distinguished Kentucky States
men is all bosh and originated in
the fertile brain of some Democratic in
politician whose wish was the fath full
to the thought
It will take more than a Demo
cratic report to convince us that
such n report is true
