produced in a few of the central counties For several years but little has been grown in Adair and even last year while the crop when marketed will bring in the neighborhood of 200 000 as figured by those in position tot fairly well estimate yet a large part of the county is not interested in it reachedewas grown in this county last year and the sections and farmers who put their time in its Whilefonean acre countyas in some other sections yet the difference in quality more than compensates and when the market has been reached the producers of this county are as well paid as in any part of the state Only the West and Northwest parts of the county seems to be interested in this crop while the rest of the county is equally well adapted If the farmers through out the county would set just what they could handle to advantage after giving sufficient time to other crops a great showing would be made in the crop receipts Burley can not be produced every where but it grows to per fection in this county and at present prices is highly profitable Why wait why fear a lowering of prices when every thing indicates advances It is now time to sow the seeds and if you have not made your mind but little time remains for delay if you plant a crop Commissioners Sale ADAIR CIRCUIT COURT KENTUCKY LF Hadley Eliza Hadley Plff Heirs of Lizzie Jane Chapman Deft By virtue of a Judgment

are easily made and are everlasting if made right A good many farmers are doing without them because of the expense If the sand is hauled at odd times and the walk putdown in sections as the time can be spared the expense will not be felt because the cost of t materials in the country is not very great and then it is a satisfaction to have good walks If the subsoil is porous and al lows the water to fall away rapidly so as to prevent freezing it is not necessary to excavate for foundation as the walk will not settle But where the subsoil is stiff clay it is better to excavate from14 to 16 inches and fill to within four and onehalf inches with cinders or gravel to make a firm foundation Two by fours are used for the sides of the form taking great care to level themThe medium mixture is one part Portland cement to two and onehalf parts coarse sand and five parts crushed rock well mixed and thoroughly wetting it so it will pack well This is shoveled into within onehalf inch from the top of the forms The walk is now cut through the con crete to the cinders to allow for expansion and contraction The surface coating is com posed of one part cement and two and onehalf parts of sand mixed to the consistency of mor tar and spread over the concrete 4in forms and smoothed with a trowel Cover the walk to pro tect it from the sun and it will be ready for use in three days but will not

Infamous The Louisville Post in spite of its own hideous record in the bloody Goebel tragedy o f ten years ago has the indecency to criticise the words of Justus Goe bel himself a dying man at the unveiling of the monument to his brother William and the burial of his brother Arthur Nothing could be more coldbloodedly brazen or insolent The Louisville Post liberally subsidized from the most enor mous corruption fund that was ever raised for use in a political campaign in Kentucky printed more foul slanders of William Goebel during his life time and during the years immediately succeeding his death than any other paper in the country Its incendiary utterances probably served as much to incite the assassins oi Goebel as the secret organization among the ignorant and vicious mountaineers from whom a man was finally picked- to do the work And even while Goebel was dying it printed and gave recognition to the foul slan der that his friend Jack Chinn while walking at his side shot him in the back For years it repeated the lie that the 100000 reward fund was being used to secure perjured testimony against the men under indictment for the assassination arid only yesterday the commission of honorable gentlemen to whom this fund was entrusted reported after ten years and after more than a dozen expensive trials of the men accused of the murder that they spent only 13000 of the money and were ready to turn back into the treasury 1500 they had drawn but had found no occasion to use But now when the last of the Goebel brothers emaciated from a fataL disease and pitifully weak in voice over the graves of his two dear ones recites only the literal truth of the great tragedy and property stigmatizes the pigmy governor who pardoned the men indicted and convicted of his brothers murder this ever infamous sheet undertakes to criticize him but dares not dis pute the truth of his utterances Owensboro Messenger EllabellGa Editor News Please allow me the space in your paper for

escape the waste basket A reader Walter Barger Sharing Plunder Speaking at Omaha former Governor Joseph W Folk of Mis souri said something that deserves a place in every well regu lated scrapbook Governor Folk said HIf it be said that the protec tive system is wrong but as long as it is allowed we might as well forlour robI that since men will rob we might as well profit by this weakness of mankind The real purpose of protection is to stifle competition and to that extent help monopoly The time has come to protect the people from monopoly instead of protecting monopoly from the people It is claimed that under the protective system money is distributed by dripping down to the people from the overflowed pockets of the protective tariff barons if that were true the people would simply be getting back a part of that which was taken from them unjustly Whenever a few men obtain more than they ought to have through privilege there must be some who will have less than they should have To say that when everybody pays too much tor everything everybody is benefited is to state an absur dity If the privilege of protec tion could be accorded to all alike it would in the nature of things benefit no one It is be cause it gives a few special privileges at the expense of the many that these few clamor so loudly for it and it is for that reason the many should not sub = mit to it

is Gibralta There never was but one prisoner escaped from this place Al catraz that was ever heard of and they found him dead on the beach The currant and tide are Iso great there that it is impossi- for a man to swim ashore- even if he had the chance and no one wants to try that unless it be a prisoner and they never get the chance They are building a new prison here now that will cost the Gov ernment one million dollars 1000000 when it is finished I am sending you a Post card of the Island and you can see the prison just on top of the rock There is a prison wall or stockade around it twelve feet high but it doesnt show very much in buildingsiaronnd the side of the Rock are quarters for the soldiers Mt Tamalyair which you can see in the picture is a great Sum mer resort and there is snow on the top of the Mount the year around The Fairy you see in the picture plays from Oakland to San Francisco and goes within 200 feet of Alcatraz No boat or ship ever touches here unless it be a Government boat with supplies or to take the soldiers ashore When men are off duty here he can go to the city and remain 24 or 48 hours and then meet the Government boat that piays between Alcastraz and Frisco when he reports to the Co Comander for duty A sold iers duty here is guarding pris oners with a loaded rifle and he must not allow them to escape or he will surely get in serious trouble

for special judges the mileage for whom amounted to 563230 Instead of appoint ing men close to hand they are sent across the State in some in stances making their mileage greater than the per diem of their term There ought to be some way to stop this drain on the treasusy When the regular judge is responsible for the ap pointment of a special judge by reason of being former counsel in a case he
