a party consisting of twenty per
sons in four machines left Barbour
ville last Sunday morning at 10:30
o'clock on a trip to Corbin via
Wilton andt returning via Grays.
.; In the first machine, a Ford, were
' Mr. and Mrs. W. H. McDonald,
W. C, T.ockliart and daughter Miss
,Lutie, and in the next car, a
K-R-I-T, were Chas. G. Black, Clias.
D. Cole, Lyman Benjamin and
Charles, Wilson; following them
came the big Locomobile owned by
. P. Catron in which he and his
wife and three children and Miss
Lindn Laws on were driven by J. II
Catron; the next car, a Win ton,
contained Gillis Catron, Claire
Parrot, Dr. Leslie Logan. V. C. Mc
Donald and John Stanfill.
The party advanced without ac
cident until after passing Wilton
where the third car, the Locomobile
experienced some engine trouble
and caused a delay of about two
and a half hours. The trouble was
finally locate1 and thought.to have
been fixed and the party proceeded
on to Corbin, arriving there nbout
5 o'clock. Other minor troubles
such as punctures caused some de
lay but taken as a whole the trip
was very successful-going.
About G o'clock after looking over
the machine and getting supper
the return trip was begun, and this
was the beginning of the real fun.
The K-R-I-T car took the lead here
and mnde excellent time to the tun
nel which is about half way, and
here another puncture caused them
to halt and wait for the cars fol
lowing which contained the repair
oufit. After waiting here a few
minutes and hearing nothing fur
ther from the other machines two
of the party, Cole and Black, decid
ed to walk back and find what was
wrong. This was a bigger under
taking than was at first expected,
as they had not gotten beyond Sil
ei where the Catron car was again
, in trouble with their engine. After
.working with that machine until

decided to abandon the job until the
next morning and those in that car
were brought to Grays wlure they
staved until the next morning. The
procession then moved on until they
reached the K-R-I-T and here they
stopped until that puncture wni
repaired about 3 o'clock in the
morning and again started on the
homeward journey. It would seem
that this was enough tough luck
for one night but more was coming
for two of the cars found that their
lights were gone and had to make
the trip in the-, dark, or rather by
moonlight, am after passing Emnn-
ucl two of,the- cars ran into a mud-
hole Which they were unable to see
without the light and here more
time was lost. They finally manag

The first two cars made the , rest
of the trip without mishap but the
Inst car again experienced some en
gine trouble and wns delayed
about two hours. The first two
cars reached home at 5:20 a. m. af
ter peing gone since 10:30 the pro
ceeding day and the third car got
in nbout 7:30. After daylight the
car left at Siler was quickly repair
ed nnd they came on in home nbout
10:30 o'clock.
The roads with the exception of
the bad mudhole at Emanuel are
in excellent shape and had it not
been for the fact that when they
started oufit was decided to all
stay togetmv as long as there was
hope of repairing, some of the cars
would hne reached home before
During all these troubles and
tribulations there were opportuni
ties for any of the party to have
come on in home on the train but
nil wcregameand stnyed it through
enjoying it as much ns though it
was in the pleasant sunshine and
joking about the many misfortunes.
This trip proves that with oschr
in good repair they can be put to a
practical use in this county, and
another excursion is planned for
next Sunday.

Lying Ben Smith
In his cnnlleuge to Den V. Smith
ana ii. ii. iavy to meet mm in
joint debate Caleb Powers said
that usually a lot ol lies were told
in a campaign and he wanted 'to
meet his opponents face to face so
as to be able to answer any and all
false charges and statements. Mr.
Smith, knowing he meant to tell a
lot of lies and make a lot of false
statements, refused to meet Mr.
Powers in joint debate and in that
way deprived him of the opportun
ity to expose the falsehoods of Mr.
Smith. 4
In his speech at Middlesbore Mr.
Smith said that Mr. Powers was
in attendance during the G2nd Con
gress only a certain limited num
ber of days in each month. How
does Mr. Smith know? Except
when an "aye or no" vote is taken
upon certain measures there is no
way to tell whether the members
ore present or absent. The trnth is
that days and weeks pass while
Congress is in session without being
any record vote of the members
upon pending legislation.
The vote iu the House of Repre
sentatives is nearly always taken
by a "v.va voci" vote or by tellers
and rarely, and except upon very
important legislation, is there a re
cord vote kept as to how members
vote, and many times not then, and
if there is no record vote taken ns
to how they vote, there is no way
to know whether a member is or is
not in attendance upon the session
ot the House, so far as the record
shows. Mr. Smith picks out the
"aye and no" vote of Mr. Powers
and then makes the lying statement
that Mr. Powers wus not present
upon the session of the House at
other times.
Because no record is made of a
man's being present at a political
meeting or at church, is no proof
that he was not there. So it is
with Congress and a member's at
tendance upon its sessions. The
truth is that the district never did
have a more faithful, industrious
and energetic member than Mr.
Powers. He has not only worked
for his constituents during the ordi
nary working hours of the day but
could be found in his office three
fourths of the nights looking up and
after legislation and matters affect
ing the rights and interests of his
Mr. Smith says that Mr. Powers
was not present and did not vote
upon the pension bill. Mr. Powers
made a speech in behalf of the
Sherwood Pension bill, voted for it
and helped pass it through the
House. Even Seavy's papers admit
that. He says that Mr. Powers
was not present and did not vote
to relieve the laborers of unjust

falsehood. Mr. powers, voted for
both of these measures. These
measures were reported to the ,
House from the Judicial Committee
of which Judge Clayton is Chairman
and Mr, Powers gave bis hearty'
support to these measures. The
newspapers supporting Mr. Seavyf
admit that. ' ' '
Mr. Smith says that Mr. Powers , ,
bas not been able to get anything ,'
appropriated for the district. That '
is another statement that Mr. ,
Smith must know is false. Mr."
Powers got $20,000 for the Public
Building at Somerset, $25,000 re
ported favorable from the Public
Buildings Committee for the Public
Building at Middlesboro and other
bills carrying thousand's of dollars
have been passed through the
House by Mr. Powers to pay off
war claims against the Government.
Stop your lying. Mr. Smith. Pow
ers has invited you to meet him in
joint debate. He told you in his
challenge that he was able to de
fend bis record against all comers
and goers. Either meet Powers in
joint debate where he can have a
(air chance at you or quit your lying
about what he has done. adv'r.
Parcels Post Stamps
WASHINGTON, Sept. 30.-Ar-
rnngements have been made by
Postmaster General Hitchcock for
the engraving and manufacture of a .
series of twelve stamps, unique in
size and novel in design for exclusive
use in the forwarding of packages
by the new parcels post. Under the
law recently enacted by the Con-
cress, ordinarv stamns can not.be
used for this ouroose. .' ' -y
The special parcels post stamps
will be larger than the ordinary
stamps and will be so distinctive in
color and design as to avert any
possible confusion with stamps now
in use.
The new issue will be in three seri
es of designs. The first will illus
trate modern methods of transport
ing mail, one stamp showing the
mail car on a railway train; anoth
er an ocean mail steamship; a third
an automobile now used in the pos
tal service; and a fourth the dis
patch of mail by areoplane.
The second series will show at
work in their several environments
the four great classes of postal em
ployes postoffice clerks, railway ,
mail clerks, city letter carriers arid
rural delivery carriers. The third
series will represent four industrial
scenes showing the principal sources
of the products that probably will
be transported extensively by par
cels post.
The stamps will be ready for dis
tribution December 1 in order that
the 00,000 postof&ces may be sup
plied with them before the law be
comes effective January 1
