Most of the materials are now Jon the groundor In Bqrbourvllle, UIT COURT OPENS Circuit Court convened Monday for the Spring Term. Common wealth's Attorney J. C. Bird was on hand to tae up his duties ac chief prosecutor., Judge Rpse, after impanelling his Juries,, grand arid petit, requested of the petit Jury that they remain In the Court House for the purpose of hearing what ho had., to say ln-hls charge to the grand Jury. The usual strong, Impressive and earnest charge was delivered to the grand Jury calling attention to var ious violations of the criminal and penal laws. He gave the Jury to un derstand that they were as much an Integral part of the court as the Judge himself and that their func tion was an important one. He took into his full fellowship and confi dence, not only the Jurors, but also the citizens of Knox County who want the law enforced. He called the Jurors' attention to the liquor trafnc, to the law denounc ing mobnshlnlng and boot-legging and emphasized the fact that these crimes are the sources ot most other crimes. He especially emphasized tho Im portance of putting down perjury and false swearing In the courts. That the entire system of adminis tration of the law was tainted as long as false cwearlng and perjury are countenanced and not suppressed He called their further attention to the obligation of parents to their children and all children to their parents. That the neglect ot parents toward the children usually ends ln criminality for the children and de sertion for the parents. That under the law the parents are compelled to school and educate and to exercise parental control over the children and that not to do so is criminal. T&at the Jails, penitentiary and house ot reform are being recruited yearly from children whose parents have neglected their duty toward them. That the only salvation for the manhood and womanhood of the country Is proper parental control and education and care. Homicides are prevalent in the land human life being considered al together too cheap and too many guilty men are turned loose, thus encouraging law violations. He called their attention to statis tics In England, Scotland and Wales where more than 85 per cent of the homicides are punished by convic tion, thus reducing crime In these European countries to a minimum, while ln Kentucky about 85 per cent ot tho perpetrators of the homicides are never punished. He called at tention to the much greater per cent of crime In this statu to the popula tion than In those European coun tries. He emphasized the facts and figures as shown by statistics. Judge Rose urged tho Jurors not In a hlstronlc, spasmodic way to en force tho law but to run down law violators and Indict, try and punish them nnd to keep steadily on. the Job and nover let up. He asked the co-operation of all the citizens who know about viola tions nnd that they come and give the grand and petit jurors the bene fit of their Information. He urged the petit Jury not to be taken "snipe hunting" or mis-led In the trial of cases, but to get all the tacts and to huto courage enough when a man Is convicted of guilt to say so a(nd when Innocent Joi''m ,QOSe and dv4J, without opplom- ' i. " CIRC COMING ALONG FINE Dr. G. II. Albright laughingly told tho editor ot the Advocato last week that In his trips over the county ho comes across tho advertising he carried ln the days when he rau what Is now tho Grant Drug Stijro. It Is still pasted up on the walls of the country homes. Further, tho firm still receives letters addressed to the Albrlgth Drug Store. Tho Mountain Advocato Is proud of Its steadily Increasing advertis ing patronnge locally. It Is a proof of two things: first, that the Moun tain Advocate is looked upon as a real newspaper; and, secondly, that our merchants recognize that to com pete with outside concerns they are compelled to advertise. The time Is one of publicity. Peo ple read tho local newspaper with more attention than they do the big city dally. It Is home news they aro reading and that which affects the dally lives of our people. We sincerely thank those who, have helped to make the Mountain Advocate a newspaper that can go abroad bearing the stamp of local enterprise on its face. It helps more than most people Imagine. A live business citizenship appeals to outsiders and a newspaper that goes out with the stamp ot approval ot its best citizenship in its adver tising carries its message of belief In the present and future prosperity ot the home town. We ask our readers to give their approval to those who Use our ad vertising columns for making known what they have for sale. It costs the merchants money, but they do It because they appreciate your pat ronage. It is advertising alone that makes a newspaper possible, whether it be large or small.
