Editor News I am in receipt of several let ters from Adair county since my first letter appeared in the News all of which I appreciate very much but however I fear that I cannot answer all of the ques tionsThere seems to be an idea in Kentucky that Oklahoma isa tribesIThis might seem true to one liv ing in Kentucky but not to an Oklahomian Our character is what we are our reputation is what we are thought to be If this old adage is true which I believe it is Kentucky is not sa bad as its reputation is laway from home For the same reason wrongIme told here will enable you to get the impression of Kentuckians- A gentleman passenger from the West had left Kansas City en route to Oklahoma this pas senger remarked Is any Kantuckian on the Kar after repeating it the second time a tall muscular looking young man in the front of the car rose up and said yes sir The passenger made his way to the Kentuckians side and said I only wanted to borrow a cork screw It is true Oklahoma is inhabit ed by people from all states of the Union and most all foreign countries are represented This mixture of all has one advantage the various and diverse ideas as sist the farmer the business man and in fact all are benefited by each Where are- you fro mMls s o urin Where are you from Kansas Harper county Halloo neigh bor where are you fromlen tucky Good morning neighbor where are you from Me talk eynQ

In Kentucky there are sixty seven countries entirely under the law prohibiting the sale of liquor and thirtythree other countries where license to sell is only granted in the County Seat The County Unit law which is before the Legislature if adopt ed would add at least twentyfive of counties to the prohibi tion column The argument that is made for the county unit law is that the people in a coun ty ought to be allowed to vote it out oa town where they do business and where school their boys It is also asserted with truth if whiskey is sold at one place in the county it helps to render ineffective the prohibi tion laws which prevail in the rest of the county Elizabeth town News SCHOOL SYSTEM CHANGED IThe entire reorganization of the common school system of Kentucky is proposed in a

presided over the chocolate pot but if you wont all laugh Ill tell you of a little fashion of mine that I dont think is half bad I wanted something new in a hat pin not long ago something orig inal and I couldnt afford a jew el pin so I made a hat pin for myself I first bought a cheap segnet hat pin the head I covered with a thin layer of wad ding Then from a piece of cloth of gold I cut a circle an inch and a half in diameter and inthe cen ter I emboridered my monogram After this was finshed I shirredf up the piece of gold slipped it over the head of the hat pin and then wound silk around the base of the head until it was tight just as the wire is wound around the broom It made a very pretty hat pin and cost only a few If monogram makes too complicatedt a design a single embroidered flower looks very attractive Grace Margarite Gould in Worn Home Companion for February A VALENTINE ENGAGEMENT PARTYi It is a pretty fashion to an npunce engagements on Saint Valentines Day

Upper Branch of our Legisla ture taking Adair county out of the Eleventh Congressional district and placing it in the Fourth This is quite consoling to the Democrats of this county who Save long sought liberation from the tremendous Republican ma j jority piled up in this district from year to year when in real ity Adair county has contributed but a small partof it Just what will be the fate of the bill can not now be stated but from what Mr James Garnett states we believe that we are nearing the time when we shall realize this hope so long cherished Mr Garnett was iii Frankfort last week and it was through his request that this step was taken to place Adair county in the district to which it has many common ties He informs us that the Democrats of the Fourth are ready and willing to r add Adair county and this being truewe can see no reason why the bill should not become a law The truth is that if through brotherly love we are carried out of the wilderness of Democratic despair and

S A GOOD BILL A bill has been introduced in the Legislature making it a misi demeanor for a boy between the ages of sixteen and twentyone to enter a saloon This law woulb have a tendency to keep them out of saloons at that age when they are most likely to con r tract the habit of drinking There is already a law punishing the saloon keeper for selling liquor to a minor but it has nev er been an offense for the minor t himself to buy all the whisky he could get This law would have a good effect in that it would keep boys from 16 to 21 out of sa loons and at the same time would protect the saloonkeeper to that extent But why not make it a little broader and provide that no one under 21 years should en ter a saloon Under the law as- proposed it would not be unlaw ful for a boy under 16 to enter and it will not be contended that a boy under 16 can have any business in a saloon The law should keep all but who are un 21 years Saloon keepers sometimes sell to minors unwittingly That is they sell to those who f have the appearance of being 21 and state that they are sent to 1 get the whisky when in reality 1 they are not The law abiding saloon keeper does not want to- T sell to minors and would preferl that they not come into his house and this character of saloon men will not oppose the proposed law t + f Ulzabethtown News The Father inIaw of Europe oi fi Christian IX was

ofnO account dogs throughout the State Representative Ed Croan has introduced a measure entitled An act to promote the sheep industry and to provide a tax on dogs The bill has been favorably reported and has passed theSenate and will doubtless become a law The bill provides that every owner of a dog must be required to pay a tax of one doller each year on the animal and each dogis to be listed for taxation each year with the assessor the same as other property The sheriff is required to collect the tax on dogs the same as he does on other property except that he is to keep such tax as a separate fund to be used to reimburse sheep owners who may suffer the loss of sheep dogsIor e any dog owner to list his dog for tax peacefl havetare entitled to pay for same by toltheFiana Ohio and

Legislature should Put in Some Needful Licks The Kentucky Legislature while rumbling round considering a flood of bills with more or less or no value at all should put in a few licks considering the ques tion of public roads which surely is of importance to the welfare of the entire State So far as we have noticed no serious effort has been made to afford relief to the present conditions concerning the roads of the State The turn pikes of the State are rapidly be coming in a deplorable condition A dispatch from Frankfort says that some remedy has been sug gested in a bill introduced in the House fixing a licence tax on all vehicles whether owned or hired The bill was drawn by Judge Holgrove of Franklin and was introduced by Representative L F Johnson Judge Holgrove drew the bill with a view of get ting the matter before the House and to start what he conceived to be a much needed reform in the State He did not claim for the bill that it was perfect or that it wouldmeet all requirements but he felt when he got it to the com mittee it could be shaped up to answer a good purpose He is now preparing a substitute bill with Senator J W Cammack of Owen county Senator Cammack has given it a greatdeal of thought and he hopes with Judge Pols grove to get a bill that will be satisfactory to all interests and accomplish the rehabilitation of the States pikes NECESSITY FOR CROP REPORTS Under this heading the Annual report of the Government Bu reau of Statistics for the year 19045 says The purposes of the Governments reports on acreage condition or quanity of agricultural products promised throughout the season and on quanity and prices of farm prod ucts actually produced may be enumerated as follows 1 To give information to producers consumers and dealers of actual yields also to report the actual conditions of promise of crops 2 To enable market centers better to balance supply againstI demand in defining warrented by natural conditionsI 3 To insure whatever stability of prices a changing state of natural conditions allows 4 Tobe so certainly authenic and so and definite interII1ested their own estimates and thus make wrong prices and unstable markets 5 To enable producers to know the facts as to the promke of prices for their crops that lithemwrongly made to low 6 To create confidence that sal sand consignments by prod ducers may be made more freely that dealers may more safelcon duct their business with lower nIrufacturersand may more freely purchase stocks to hold thus adding certainty and stability to their business that they may work on a less speculative basis and thus bring more equitabk return from labor t and endituretQJJll interested 71To make reports so fre QOnljafterceditions occur nor jso soon alter actual yields are harvested that the least possible elemento fun hfiar ttt f r9 certainty or speculative condi tion may prevail to remove prices from their normal economic place 8 To give production by calities or crop areas and give local market demands so that producers may know to which market to sell and and so that buyers may know where best to secure sup plies thus to equalize prices and to avoid loss from very low prices an in case of heavy production of perisha ble products A STATE INSTITUTE Farmers throughout the State may be interested in an announcement made by Commissioner of Agriculture Vreeland that during the latter part of Febru ary a State Farmers Institute or convention will be held in Frankfort The meeting will probably last three days and during the time addresses will be made by some of the most popu lar lecturers from experiment stations in the country There are fifty or more county institutes in the State and each will send from one to six delegates to the State convention It is quite probable that the preliminary work of organization of the State Farmers Institute will be done at Shelbyville Prof S G of the Illinois noItedwill lecture on corn breeding Prof P G Holden another authority on the subject will also be present and give some advice along this line Prof M A Scovell of the Kentucky Ex periment Station and President James K Patterson of the State College are also on the program for addresses ISNT IT ODD That most upright pianos are downright nuisances That so few men are competent to enjoy competency That it takes a strong company to make a weak stand That

with it more importance to thewelfare of our people and the reputation of the State than the measure introduc ed by Senator Ben Johnson a few days ago aimed to put a stop to the vicious and nefarious practice of carrying concealed deadly weaponsThe deadly weapon is responsible for at least nine tenths of all the killings in Kentucky and an equal number of shooting and cutting scrapes where the intention is to kill The present law against carrying con cealed weapons is totally inade quate to meet necessities of the case It has never been known to prevent bad men from carry ing a gun while it has too often put the good men who respect all law at a disadvantage- To make the carrying of concealed deadly weapons a felony will not correct the evil The severity of the penalty will re- SUlt like the law making gamb ling a felony a dead letter on our statute books Kentucky has suffered in its reputation in the other States preventing both out side capital and outside people coming to our borders from the general opinion that every Kentuckian carries a gun in one hip pocket and a bottle of whisky in the other and that he is as free to use the one as he is the other In part this a slander upon our State but it is a fact that a por tion of our people carry guns and that the first idea among this class of gun toters is to shoot somebody when in a difficulty and especially when it is known that the other has not a gun The practice of carrying concealed deadly weapons costs the State every year many human lives that would be spared for years of usefulness if there was a stop put to pistol toting and would also save the State thousands of dol in criminal prosecutions Mr Johnsons bill strikes at the very bottom of the evil It provides that a man cannot enter the plea of self defense in murder manslaughter or shooting or cut ting with intent to kill if it is proven that at the time of the- concealeddifficulty he had a deadly weapon No man will carry a gun or a knife for the pur pose of shooting or cutting someone if the very thing he carries it for will send him to the peniten tiary or the gallows when he car ries his intentions into action In stead of having a gun in a difficulty being an advantage toa man it will be a decided disadvan tage The bill should by all means become a law Senator Johnson should have the backing of all good citizens in th9 matter and the Oommercial Club of Louisville cannot do a better thing for the advancement of Kentucky than to stand behind Senator Johnson in this very splendid measure The visit Of exGovernor Leslie to Kentucky recalls the fact that but few States have so many ex Governors living in Kentucky In addition to Leslie there is Mc Orearyy Knott Buekner and Bradley It is doubtful if any State can show up five exGov

son was 1 year old the father was 27 the father is then 26 years older than the son After the son gets to be 26 years old the father will be twice as old As man years as they live after the son gets to be half as old as the father the father will want that many years to be twice as old If the father wants 17 years of being twice as old they would have to live 17 years after the son is half as old
