Mr. James Garnett, of Adair county, lawyer of prominence and a Democratic leader in the Eleventh Congressional district. is a candidate for the Democratic nomination for Attorney General. In the opinion of those who knov him, Attorney Garnett measures up to the full require ments of that office, and it is not improbable that the Democratic party may honor him as a candidate at the primary, Jnly 1, 1911. Attorney James Garnett is a promin n; lawyer and a man of personal honor. As a lawyer he trict. In politics he is a power in his section, and although comparatively a young man, he made his appearance upon the hustings a great many years ago. Mr. Garnett served his home county, Adair, for eight successive ears, as County Attorney and left on the records "duty well led like lambs into theishambles, d and demand some policies of the prty, and Mr. Garnett is an uncompromising advocate of a platform, clean-cu- t and easily understood. He, together with the people, stands &or something, and would prefer to stand upon a well-definewell-constructed I j platform rather than give a bare pledge that does not bind a party to do anything. Vital questions confront the State and Mr Garnett believes in an announced position of the Democratic party in the next ; retime amuuy uits uesi m ins uia- - campaign. performed." Mr. Garnett has ever been considered one of the wise counsellors of his party in the state, and served with distinct credit as member of the Democratic State Central Committee from the Eleventh district from 1895 to 1898. From manhood to the present he has given his best service to the party he loves, and iias not only served in the capacity of state campaign committeeman during several memorable struggles, but his voice upon the stump has been lifted ih. behalf of the party all over the state, As Attorney General, we believe that Mr. Garnett would show himself an able and fearless head of the legal department of the state and would make a vigorous prosecutor. His past record in public life leads us to assert that he would array himself against the procrastination exercised so often in .the administration of public justice. In the present primary campaign Mr. Garnett is waging a clean battle, and will not give quarter to any unfair methods of ;the opposition. He stands for the welfare of the whole people rather than the .selfish interests of a few politi -- Democrits demand it and implore those in authority The days are shorter in De-- ! to allow the party the right to form a platform of principles cemberandso are a good many and pledge its nominees before men say along aboutthe twenthe electorate of theState, The ty fifth. point taken by Mr. Garnett is Bogus Counts sometimes with for it appears at American girls and bogus counts this juncture, under existing quite frequently in election. conditions, the party must take a Three barleycorns make an inch position on the important ques- so the table says and three drinks tions of the day.

Mr. Garnett favors strongly a -- platform convention, that the voters of the state may know '.where they are "at." He looks at public questions from a standpoint of a patriot rather than a petty politician; from that of a man who has exercised more than usual caution in selecting candidates for the ! next state election. The people are tired of being Hints on Shaking Hands. With such a platform, Mr. Garnett, of Adair county together d with all other candidates will present a logical candidacy for its sentiments will echo conviction and its honesty mirror their manhood.. The true statesman tries to make all men equal before the law and the true patriot puts well being of the whole people aboye the impudent claims of class and the selfish ambition of place hunters. We believe with an eminent statesman that "the voice of the people is the voice of God" and Talleyrjnd never uttered a truer paradox than when he declared that everybody knows more than anybody, The cumulative wisdom of the country is greater, safer than the conclusions of a coterie, though it be composed of the Seven Sages, and this fact is the basic principle for which the Democrats now stand. The rank and file want a platform and so does Mr. Garnett, and his hosts of loyal followers, and by all means let it be bone. fair-minde- How much character is expressed in the manner of shaking hands?

DurBecause country life skillfully and ing the month of December that orIntelligently directed assuredly offers ganization sent out invitations to a more of health, of independence, and even of luxury, than is attainable in any city; and because it is imperative that unless the problem of making the country school fit country life be solved, there is every indication that Kentucky, an agricultural state, will soon find herse'f with a decreasing, inJSP v stead of an increasing, population, a state wide rural school conference was held in Louisville, Wednesday, March 29, under the auspices of the Louisville Commercial club. It was a conference which may best be designated as "neighboily" a conference which discussed the vital and pressing problems of Kentucky's rural schools, as man to man, at, neighbor to neighbor, each interested in finding the proper way to make over the rural schools of Kentucky, so that schools which fulfill their mission schools which touch intelligently, sympathetically, constantly and consciously every social and economic Interest that concerns the community may take the place of the present intolerable jural school system of the state.

"The slogan, 'More Schools and Better Schools," means to the state more factories and better factories, more railroads and better railroads, more traction lines and better traction lines, more agriculture and better agriculture, more citizens and better citizenship in brief, school development means state development."

If we can show the boy how to make twice as much money on a plot of land as his father has made, he is going to become interested in farm work; if we can show him the difference between the cow that does not give enough milk to support heroelf, and one that not only supports herself, but helps to support the boy, he is going to become interested In good dairy cows.

The disgraceful condition of the little schools, the lack of the overcrowding, the unhy-geni- c conditions, the impossibility of g the health of the children under such awful conditions, inspired the delegates to the state-wid- e conference with a burning determination to set Kentucky right before the world, and give "a square deal" to the boys and girls of the state. This decision embodied in the resolution, adopced by the convention, which says, "Resolved, that we most earnestly ask and petition the next general assembly of our beloved commonwealth to enact a law authorizing the counties to issue bonds for building school houses," met with the most profound and heartfelt approbation on the part of all who attended. "The erection of sanitary, school hquses, properly heated, will in addition enhance the respect of the community for the school. "It will enable larger playgrounds to be provided, and healthy, interesting and properly directed games to be Inaugurated for the children of the community. It will make possible the sehool garden and agricultural plot and manual training and domestic science.

If we afford our children greater advantages than we enjoyed, we shall have the conscientious conviction of having performed our duty. The foremost need of an educational system Is to keep abreast of the times.

Is how to make the country school fit country life. Only that schools fulfills its mission which reaches out and touches intelligently, sympathetically, constantly, and conscientiously every social and economic interest that concerns Its community. And so, when I speak of the consolidated school in Virginia, I mean a grouping, at some central point, of smill schools into a larger school for the purpose of working out this problem of making the school serve its community by Inculcating a purposeful education, and a spirit "of civic service. The rural peorple need meeting places for educational, economic, and social purposes. The consolidated school provides a proper center for such meetings; in other words. thedeepest meaning of the consolidated school Is that it tends to socialize community life: It tends to tenbreak up unsocial and dencies.

Governor Willson, in the course of an especially happy little address, spoke of his own early school training, and referred to the fact that when he studied "jography" he never knew what an engrossing study it might be made. "Were I to teach geography today," said Governor Willson, "I should begin with tho achoolhouse which the children attend. From that I should take them to the nearest town, then back to the farm, then another tour over their own Ftate. They would learn the practical meaning of geography and It would lead back to the farm."

Raven Bird is a beautiful mahogany bay full 16 hands high, 5 years old, he has the best of eyes feet and legs, a beautiful head and neck, a very heavy well set tail, which he at all times carries to perfection. He possesses extreme speed, style and action, and the most perfect disposition of any stallion I have ever seen or handled. He has fine distinct gaits, and goes them all in a most attractive manner. You will note from his breeding that he has for his sire the famous old Red Bird, who has perhaps sired as many high class show, and sale horses as any scallion in Kentucky, and traces on his dam's side to Cabell's Lexington, conceeded by all horsemen to be one of the greatest sires that ever lived. Raven Bird is one of Red Bird's greatest sons, and has proven himself an excellent breeder, and we have every reason to believe that, if he is given an opportunity he will make a reputation equal to that of his worthy sire.

As many letters are received from mothers regarding the cures of children, as from men and women of sixty, seventy and eighty years of age. It must be truly a wonderful laxative. In the cure of constipation and bowel trouble in old people it has no equal. It corrects the constipation, dispete the headache, biliousness, gas, drowsiness after eating, etc. People advancing in years should see to it that their bowels move freely, and if they do not to take Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin. You can prolong your life by healthy bowel action. Clogged bowels invite disease. Women about to pass the menstrual period cannot do better than use Syrup Pepsin several times a week until the system has settled to its future condition. Among the strongest supporters of Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin are Mr. W. G. Zorn of New Decatur, Ala., and Mr. George S. Spaulding of the National Soldiers' Home, Kansas, both elderly men.

J Jordan Peacock. This noted Saddle Stallion will make the present season at Gradyville, Ky., and will serve mares at the low price of $15.00 to insure a mare with foal. Jordan is in fine shape, looks like a colt. He is so well known that he needs no introduction to the public. He is known from the Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean. Jordan has pired from 50 to 100 colts every year for 14 years, and most all of them have been sold from weanlings to 4- year-old- s at from $100 to $2,000. There .has been a goodly number of them sold from 500 to $1,000. There has been over One Hundred Thousand Dollars paid to the people of Adair and joining counties for this horse's colts. I will also stand NOBLE PEACOCK, a son of Jordan Peacock, on the same terms as Jordan Peacock NOBLE is a very fine young horse. He was shown in two rings at the Columbia Fair, last year and won each time. There were 8 entries in one ring and Noble won the blue tie. His first dam was by Artist Jewel, 2nd dam by Cromwell Denmark, 3rd dam by Artist 75. From the above breeding you will see there is no better bred one living than NOBLE PEACOCK. I will also stand 2 fine Jacks, HIGHWAY and BLACK DIAMOND at $10.00 to insure a mare with foal.
