Henry gave up to 7 runs and 10 hits. Just a word about a decision given by ump ire Friar that partly evened up the one-sided game. The score stood at 7 to 3 in the ninth in ning and one man out when Kilgore hit a high fly to left field, the ball knocked one leaf from a bush, but the fielder caught the ball and the umpire called the runner safe, there fore enabling Clinchco to run in two scores. “The game opened with Mol m-ses at the stick, and Small pox catching. Cigar was in the box with plenty of smoke. Horn cn first base and Fiddle on sec ond, backed by Corn -in the field, made it hot for Umpire Apple, who was rotten. Ax came to bat and chopped. Cigar let Brick-walk, and Saw-dust filled the bases. Song made a hit, and Twenty made a score. Cigar went out and Balloon star ted to pitch, but went up in the air. The Cherry tried it but was wild. Old Ice kept cool in the ' . me until he was hit by a pitched ball, then you should have heard Ice Cream. Cabbage had a good head, and kept quiet. Grass covered lots of ground in the field, and the crowd cheered when Spider caught the fly. Bread loafed on third, and pumped Organ, who played fast and put Light out. In the fifth inning Wind began ’dew about what he could do Hammer began to knock and '"ir es began to leave. The way Uiev roasted Peanuts was a Hi At. Knife was put out for ulimg first base. In the ninth. Apple told Fiddle to take his base. Oats was shocked and then Song made another hit. Trombone made a slide and ■ i at was put out cn the plate. re was a lot of betting on the game, but Soap cleaned up. > he score was 7to 5 in favor of Haysi. Door said if he had pitched he would have shut Umm out.” GAS TAX \By Carter Wormcley.) Richmond, Va., Sept. 10 — From the office of the Govern or of Virginia is released the following bulletin: Motor Vehicle Commissioner James M. Hayes announces that, on a basis of the past year, the average automobilist in Virginia paid an $18.03 gas oline tax, making a total tax per car of $32.27 per year. Com missioner Hayes estimates that ten per cent of the gasoline tax was paid by out-of-state mot orist.;, thus reducing the cost to the average Virginia motor ist to $30.47 per car per year. This is approximately eight cents per car per day. For the above eight cents Virginia automobilists are pro vided good roads and are great ly reducing their cost of oper as ion. both in the consumption of gasoline and the wear and tear on their machines. This eight cents nor day paid by the motorists of Virginia for good roads is probably the best in vestment they could make. ON BEING YOURSELF TIig difficulty tyf being yous se’f will be admitted by any rne who has ever apologized for his own words or deeds by saying, “I was not myself when that ha-mened.” Perhaps this pom f ubst'tuto for your better soli is the creature of worry, oi illness, or some intemperance of body or spirit. But even the best of us experience the dif ficulty of being always at his best. To be at your best physically is a difficult achievement. The great singer must train his voice hour after hour before his audience can listen to it in comfort. We often remark: How naturally he sings! Yet behind that simple naturalness are years of grinding practice. How much more difficult then it is to be ourselves in that realm of intangible thing called personality. There seems to be a certain depravity into which we naturally gravitate We set out nobly to be* at our best, and fall far short of that shining goal. We do the thing we should not have done, and leave undone the thing that we should have done. Yet out of this never ending conflict of the spirit, comes per sonality, power and influence. It makes us what we are. It is the secret of such tremendous personalities as Lincoln or Roosevelt. Being one’s true self is not easy. But beyond, its accomp lishments lie the rewards of life. The great Bard was right: “To thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man.” FALSELY ACCUSED Dear Editor I desire to use a small space :n your paper as a medium through which the public may be informed of the falsity of a certain rumor going the rounds. I have just been told that a rumor is being circulated to the effect that I, as Notary Public, have in my possession a state ment, sworn to by John Henry Anderson, stating that he, J. H. _ Anderson, if elected to the Office of Sheriff, would not ap point as his deputies certain individuals. First of all I desire to inform the public that this is not only a false rumor, but what I be lieve to be a premeditated lie, as no such statement, either written or verbal, has been transacted or suggested in my presence. While I do not believe for a minute that any of the leaders of either of the parties would sanction any such quality of political trickery, yet I do be lieve this particular rumor has been concocted by some “two by four” politician, either Dem ocrat or Republican, from pure ly ulterior political motive, and if so it is what I call “dirty politics”, let it be from which ever source it may have origin ated, and just such petty mud dinging as this is what causes the public to look upon politics ■'rom the rotten practices rath er Jhan from the lofty princip le v; upon which the great part i ;es were founded. ! Very truly yours, R. L. Sutherland. LONGSFORK ITEMS ; Several people from here at tended the memorial srvice at iMrs. Lamberts last Sunday on i Honey Camp.

In a free hitting and loosely played game played at Clint wood, Clintwood won from Caney by the score of 15 to 14. It was Clintwood’s second vic tory of the league season. Caney began the game aus piciouly bv scoring 6 runs in the first inning, and kept put ting runners across at irregular intervals. Clintwood, in its scor ing. made an unusual record by making at least one score in each of the nine innings. This shows a commendable fighting spirit which has characterized Clintwood’s playing all season. Her games have usually been lost in the early innings, but the team has always come back stronger in the latter innings. Lie Sutherland and Ted Baker hit home runs for Clintwood. The Line-up.

SELECTS A homely face is the best chaperon. You’ve got to look sharp to cut much ice. ■ Two can live cheaper than one but not as fast. The good that die young are not the good drivers. Fairy stories no longer inter est children or wives. Fortune never smiles at a man because he is a joke. The meek may inherit the earth, but not from the meek. The darker things get the more chance there is to shine. Onlv two more months until time to predict a hard winter. Time and tide wait for no man but time hesitates for a woman. Be careful where you put your confidence and you won’t lose it. If there were only four autos twenty-five years ago where did the taxi companies get theirs ? When a man loses anything else, he advertises for it. But when he loses his head, he' stops advertising. Anthrax verms lurk in shav ing brushes. And the Lightning Rod Manufacturers’ Associat ion warns that there is peril in shaving during a storm. Is this propaganda to bring beards back into fashion?

The Farmers’ Fair closed on last Saturday with a success, not only in the way of profit to the Association, but we believe it has benefitted every farmer and house-wife that were in terested enough to place their products on display at the ex hibit room, also we feel th?J each and every individual wv~ viewed the many farm products and articles of art and needle work on display, were very much pleased. We hope that the farmers of our County will cooperate with the Fair Association’s officials in making the next Fair the best that this County has ever had. It can be done. You can do nothing better than to boost the county in which you live, and the b^0* way to attract the attention of the outside wrorld is to let peo ple know what we are doing. This, ofcourse, is very easily done through the simple med ium of advertising, and the op portunities offered by the Far mers’ Fair Association is one of the best means we have to let the outside world know just how industrious we are. There are thousands of live, wide-awake, intelligent and in dustrious people in our county. And why not make the Fair of 1928 even a greater success than the one just closed?
