afdernoon in the interest of W Godfrey Huntea Mr Yarberry re viewed the troubles of the Middlesboro convention of the campaign and con test and accepting his statements a good part of the Republican

little daughter of Bowling Green are visiting friends and relatives Green and Taylor counties They will spend several weeks around their old homes near Camp Knox We trust that the News and Specta tor will stir up an interest in the development of Adair and Green counties as a part of the oil field of Kentucky There is no doubt but that the geologi cal formations and psycological condi tions for Adair and Green counties as an oil producing territory are as good as that of Cumbnrland and Knox coun ties and speculators seekinginvestment for capital l are losing time and money not opening up a field here TIME TO KILL EM- It may not be generally known but uevererthcless it Is a fact that there is a certain time iu each year when trees sbrubs and many weeds can be killed with very little Hun on the part of the farmer Perhaps it maybe a condition of the yap at tbls par tlcular period which renders external interference so fatal to them and per haps it may be something of a cbemi cal nature However they die from wouns which at other periods would be scarcely perceptible I have known trees to be killed by haying a single IIbeltedcur in the morning will be thoroughly wilded before sunset The 14th day of August is the day of all days for dc straying troublesome trees and weeds Let every farmer jot this date down BRAIN LEAKS The broader the smile the shorter the task Everything is for the bests even the worst of it A smile will go a mile while a frown is going a furlotig The sanest Fourth was where It rained the hardest Ever notice how long the day is when you start it oil grumbling ted like to go fishing just once when only the little fish got away It is a waste of time to pray for what you want unless you really need It There are three epochs in a mans life the day he catches his first llsb the day he hears the wail of his first born and the day ho realizes the slgr nittcancc ot today A man never knows how much work a woman has to do until bis wife goes r away for a couple of weeks and he dertakes to straighten up the house the day before she returns The man who never makes mistakes is the man who never undertakes any a man begins to wonder if he looks as old as be really is it Is a sign that he does The writers of the best old songs are dead Toe writers of some of the new ones ought to be The man who never ate watermelon save with a fork has an awfully good time coming to him The men who talk loudest about the necessity of war are generally the men who stay at home and finance it We will probably never have enough money to enable us to set aside a hero fund and even if we do have enough we couldnt do it Well set aside a fund to reward the girls who bake better bread than their mothers If thire were no weeds to interfere with the garden perhaps we wouldnt enjoy eating the vegetables so much We arc inclined to believe that the h udtrst work we could do would be i what some men think is having a good iirt atcst bore iu town is the man who iusibts on telling you his troubles when you want to tell him your uwu Nearly every man would like to have a jIb that Mould permit him to get up whenever he pleased in the morning to begin it We have often wondered why some corporations did not try obeying the law just to see if it wasnt cheaper than hiring costly lawyers to light it What has become of the sweet old grandmother who could remember when tomatoes were called love ap pies and everybody thought they were poison SUNFLOWER PHILOSOPHY We sometimes think it is foolish to worry over trying not to worry We cant imagine a more dangerous combination than a loose tongue and ignoranceA who will submit to being im posed upon by his kin can be worked by a book agent attendloryou eau stand being roasted The average housekeepers idea of hell is a place where she will have to wash dishes forever and ever A girl misses her mother when slit dies but she doesnt fully appreciate what the loss really means till he father acts like marrying

land Indiana into the Parker column When a Republican paper or speaker asserts that there is not enough intelligence in the Democratic party to entrust it with the steerage of the Old Ship of State

recognition of the large part he played in making Judge Parkers nomination pcssible by instructing the delegate vote of Indiana for him at a critical peri od in his political fortunes but it is the expression of the common belief among Democratic leaders that the State can be redeemed from Republicanism With the exception of the two elections in which Mr Taggart was handicapped by the antago nism of the solid gold Democratic vote he has never failed of suc cess in any political contest in which he has entered No other man in Indiana has so keen an in sight into and firm a grasp of the peculiar political conditions that exist there It may be urged againt him that he is a practical politician but intensely practical politics is the only variety known to Hoosierdom With a liberal campaign fund with lieutenants bound to him by close ties of per sonal liking with an acquaintance covering the entire State with a thorough knowledge of the game and with the renewed support of 20000 formergold Democrats Mr Taggart has more than an even chance to perform successfully the task allotted to him And an even chance is all that he has ever election will serve to unite the Democrats of the Central West with those of the East and will increase Democratic chances in Wisconsin as well as Indiana two States which will play a vital part in determining the outcome of the campaign Mi Taggart will strengthen the partywhere I most it has need of strength Mr Sheehan as chairman of the Ex ecutive Committee may safely be intrusted with the duty of bring ing New York NHW Jersey Con necticut and Delaware into ice The Solid South iualudiug Maryland and West Virginia will look after itselfLouisville Times EGGS BY WEIGHT There is a movement on foot among produce dealers to abopt the plan which is in use in many partB of the world for selling eggs by weight The unfairness of the present method is more apparent than real If a h UB4wife were to buy by the pound Instead of the dczen she would doubtless receive one or two less fur the same exp nditure unless the eggs were very large But she would un doubtedly receive the same amount of nutriment perhaps a little moreIt reported that the prey e knals of Prussia havo been peti tioned to have eggs sold in the future by weight instead of number The claim iBthat the German eggs are much heavier and larger neighboringmay be some slight advantage in tho price it is sproportionate to the actual nutriment contained in the German egg The lightest of the German eggs weigh more than the heaviest of the imported eggs so it seems unfair that they should sell at equal price per dozen- GROWTH OF TilE SOUTH The wealth of the South tcday with its population of 25000000 is equal to the wealth of the United States with its 31000000 in I860 The South is LOW mining six times as much bituminous co as the United States mined in 1800 it is making six times as much pig iron its output foil is eighty times as great as that ofcy the whole country then its lumber output is more than doube its railroad mileage is twice as great and its total wealth is over 16 OoooOOOaga 10100 000000 for the whole country in 1860 This is indeed a brilliant show ing When it is remembered how pitiful was the condition of the Southat the close of the civil war how poor it was how stripped it was of everything that makes for progress it is marvelous that a recovery could have been main the forty years which have elapsed since the closing of the struggle that today it may bH said that the South is us groat in wealth and prosperity as thoOIh tire United States was before II commencement of the civil war Marvelous as these results are still greater things will be accom plished in the next decade The building of the great organic canal being assured the South is preparing to reap the greatest harvest from its construction Pensa cola Mobile New Orleans and Galveston are destined to become the great ports of the country The middle west and the north westwill pour its grain its coon od goods its meats and manufac tu red products to the Southern ports instead of to New York BOB ton and other Eastern ports The South will
