and where heI was born not of his own person ly knowledge for that is impOssi- ble but from knowledge derived from his parents If our friends McChdrd and Johnson had some one fb dispute the place where they were born they would think it very absurd Is not Mr Lin coIn himself entitled to be can sidered the very best authority as to the place ofhis birth as much as any other man He certainly had better opportunities to know where he was born than men who were born fifty or sixty years after his birth Mr Lin coin furnished to the Congressional Directory when he was first elected to Congress a statement that he was born in Hardin county There is indisputable evidence in the hands of the IAn coIn Farm Association that he was born in Hard n county There isa letter in existence written byMr Lincoln when he was President to Mr Samuel Haycraft then the Clerk of the Court in Elizabethtown in which he says again that he was born on the farm in what is now La Rue county where the celebration is to be held The truth of the whole matter is that the place where Abraham Lincoln was born is as well established as any other fact in history E Town News The Advance in Price of Lands One of the remarkable features of the socalled panic of 1907 and its consequences is its failure to adversely affect the prices or values of the agricultural lands financialIdisturbances invariably didso The panics of 1857 1873 and 1893 were each followed by seriOus depressions in the values ofreal estate of all kinds and I especially of the farming lands of all the States regardless of location Or

their hands- Newspaper editors are a very knowing and a vary quarrelsome fish often engaging in mortal combat over the most trival matt rs It is said by piscatorial experts that their circulation requires such excessive stimuli They usually swim near the surface and seldom go very deep Nevertheless they are exceedingly wary and are likely to duck when you get the hook Accordingly amateurs find dif ficulty in catching them Ex perts however handle them with greatest ease The most apprpved way of catching them is to secure a large display ad vertisement the larger the better Some insist that the advertise ment should be highly colored to secure the best results The object is to confuse them Ap proach them carefully but with out fear Spread the advertise ment before them where they can get a good look at it and th prey is yours They feed obits tl of gossip rumor and green stuff Farming in Winter Those of us who are not very old can remember when the farmer v had little if anything to

because of suclv experiments as this that MANY ACCIDENTS CAN AND WILL BE AVOIDED The function of the federal government in relation to mining is through THOROUGH SQIENTIFIq ThVESTIGAPIONS simi Jar to those which have proved effective in other mineral producing countries to OBTAIN AND PUBLISH PTEORMATION CON CERNING THE EXPLOSIVES USED Evf THE MINES and the conditions under which they can

Courts of this dis trict is consumed in the trial of petty offenses that belong to the exclusive jurisdiction of the in ferior Courts The inferior Courts are presided over by the County Judges Police Judges and Mag istrates In the Circuit Court these petty offenses are usually prosecuted as breaches of the peace Wand include public drunk ness disorderly conduct c Ken tucky Statutes Sec 1093 is as

the first shock gives to the hiehj c stresses that causel it may complete and that further adjustments of the rock strata may be necessary to restore equilibrium In the present case the only serious harm done was wrought at the outset Since the shock of Dec 28 little life has been lost and iEUCli walls as have been affected were tottering before The old theory that the interior of the earth is a
