Ben Johnson Says McCreary and OIlie James Must Be Elected. ISSUES A CARD TO THE PUBLIC. S. i Washington, July 21. "OIlie James must be sentto the Senate: Mr. McCreary must he made Governor: All the rest of the Democratic ticket must be elected." This sentence epitomizes a stirring y by Representative call voiced Ben Johnson, of the Fourth district, for the success of Kentucky Democrats next fall. Mr. Johnson uttered it to show vhat stock he takes in current political stories that former Senator McCreary is seeking to defeat him for renomination in the Fourth District and to indicate to those Republicans who are spreading such stories that they cannot divert either Mr. Johnson or. any of his friends. Although Johnson was a candidate against McCreary for the gubernatorial nomination, and withdrew from the race amid circumstances not entirely harmonious, he said today that he had never scratched a Democratic ticket in his life nor does he now intend to. silr. Johnson issued his statement after reading some of the stories about him current in a Louisville evening newspaper. He said: "I have read the article in the Louisville Post saying that the McCreary men are after my political scalp. In my opinion this is nothing more and nothing less than an attempt upon the part of the Republicans to array my friends against McCreary and the rest of the Democratic nominees on the State Ticket. This scheme cannot be worked to the detriment of the Democratic ticket by the Republicans, no matter who may permit the use of his name as a candidate for Congress against me, to further its accomplishment.

"The Democratic party has preserved, through long years of adversity, those doctrines through which alone can come relief to a burdened people The man who would let his own ambitions or his greed for spite or revenue induce him to give less than all his honest efforts and influence to Kentucky's redemption is, in my opinion, not a friend to mankind. I am not that man. Let us see later whether or not the trail of the serpent can be found in the path of those who would like to see the Fourth district fail in its duty to the Democratic party this fall, and then undertake to lay their own dirty inen at some other door. That Kentucky is in Republican hands is now a regret and misfortune. Kentucky hands of Republicans next year might endanger the election of a Democratic President which seems now absolutely certain. OIlie James must be sent to the United States Senate; Mr. McCreary must be irade Governor; all the rest of the Democratic ticket must be elected. Democracy must not take a backward step. "The Republicans are disorganized and have no hope of a victory except by making inroads into Democratic ranks. They can make no headway with me and my friends by telling me that McCreary wants to defeat me for Congress. In the-firplace "he could not do so if he wanted to, but he does not want to; and, if he wanted to and could do so. he could not drive me out of the partj by doing so.

For the past two weeks the town has been deprived of the benefit of the arc lights and the street light's. This state of affairs was brought about, as we are informed, by the City Council re ducing the price per month for the service rendered. The residents of the town are taxed for the lights and to do without them makes it inconvenient to church going people who attend evening services, and besides, it is a disad vantage to the town. We understand that the difference between the" light company and the Council amounts to but little, and it certainly ought to be adjusted. The Fair is coming on and there will be many strangers in Columbia, many who are not acquainted with our streets, and an accident might occur that would cost the town more than than the price of one year's of lights. Besides, an unfavorable opinion would be formed of the enterprise of Columbia. Doubtless, concessions ought to be made by both sides, and the lights should be turned on. The taxes will be no less if the town remains in darkness, and as the lights afford a very great convenience, the tax payers being anxious for them, they should no longer remain cut off, as the plant is an enterprise of incalcuable advantage to the citizens of Columbia and her visitors It matters not what it cost per mofith for lights, the people are taxed for them and they want them. In this case it is not a question of expenses for the Board to consider, but the joint is, is it carrying out the will of the people who are wanting the lights and who are being taxed for tnem. Besides the merthe town are paying the chants taxes, and they have heretofore largest had a good business after nightfall, many of the town ladies preferring to do their shopping after supper. This trade is now cut off because the square and streets are not lighted, and for the further reason that it is not so that the ladies can be accompanied at all times. Judge Carter Praised. The July term of the Casey circuit court adjourned at Liberty on Saturday July 8, after a rushing week's business. I assisted the circuit clerk during the term, as I have done every term of the court since he was inducted into office, therefore, I have been in Judge Carter's courts for nearly two years in Casey county , and I speak the truth, if I know it, when I say that his decisions are certainly as impartial as any Judge I ever heard on the bench. lie is against every violation of the law, as a matter of fact, but he is using an especial effort to drive the liquor traffic out of his district. His efforts should be praised by every good citizen in the counties which comprise his district. I am sure that he has no fear of bootleggers nor any other whisky seller, and if a person would hear his instructions to the grand jury upon that particular violation, he would make the decision I have. In Casey those persons who have been violating the local option law have abaut disappeared, it seems However, they are still being indicted for offenses heretofore committed within twelve months ; but it is seldom now that they can be reached with process In Casey county. I heartily endorse Judge Carter's position along this line, and every one of his courts 1 have worked in. 1 admire him for his laudiable-nes- s and fearlessness In Casey county at this term of court only 59 indictments were found against 113 a year ago. Every indication points to the fact that the county is growiug better at a rapid rate, and that the violaters of the law are realizing beyond question that they must respect the law, or suffer the penalty and I am of the opinion that Judge Carter is dae a great deal of the praise for the transformation that Casey county is now enjoying. Fred McLean. Eloquent Sermon. Death of Mr. J. B. Rasner. The subject of thi3 notice died last Tuesday noon in thi3 place after an illness of more than a year. He became a resident of Columdia about .ix yeara ago, remaining here, conducting a restaurant, until a few months in the past, when he took up hi3 residence in the eastern portion of the county.

McCoy, of Birmingham, Ala., preached at the Methodist church, this city, last Sunday forenoon. The building was packed, the discourse being one of the most scholarly that has been delivered in this town for a long time. His language was perfect and his descriptive powers great. It was certainly a treat to the many who heard him, and his visit will long be remembered. Besides being a finished preacher he knows how to do things. There was a debt of eleven hundred dollars on the church, and at the close of his discourse ho stated that the money must be raised He then called for subscriptions and Governor Hindman headed the list with $300. Mr. Frank Sinclair, Geo. A. Smith, J. A. English, G. B. Smith and Mrs. J. O. Russell followed with 5100 each. He then called for less amounts, and in 15 minutes the eleven hundred dollars was raised. Bishop McCoy presides over the Louisville Conference, and at Greenville this fall he will make disposition of the preachers for the coming year to-da- y. attending. Death of Mr. S. H. Paul.

His death cast a shadow over the community where he was His aged wife and two daughters and other relatives were at the bedside when death came.

There is a fascination in watching a lot of beautiful, fawnlike Jersey heifers as thej are developing into cows, especially if their breeding is sucli as to give promise of unusual excellence. There is enough of chance in it to satisfy in some degree the gambling spirit that we mortals are cursed with. The science (or lottery) of breeding has such a charm for the amateur that many formulas of inbreeding have been experimented with to the detriment of some families of Jerseys. To be sure, a few remarkable freaks have resulted, but these are of questionable value, since they never reproduce themselves. The phenomenal results of mating the St. Lambert herd with Stoke Pogis III. have been the inspira tion that has resulted in inbreeding.

A matter of prime importance In laying tile for drainage of wet laud Is that of getting an even grade or fall to the ditch, says Professor M. B. Sher-wi- n in the Progressive Farmer and . Gazette. If the tile in, the bottom forms a waving line or change from a given grade to a grade less steep, there may always be expected an accumulation of silt due to the less rapid flow of water within the tile which will drain. Silt basins may be put in to admit of cleaning out this material at intervals, but just as far as possible the deposit of it should be prevented by getting an even grade so that there is no tendency for accumulation. This even grade may be obtained by the use of a very simple piece of apparatus. one which any farmer can easily make and use. Take a piece of 1 by inch pine board. A, sixteen feet long. Fasten securely to the ends of this two pieces, B B. each nine feet Ion?, and have them meet above the middle of the piece A.

A lady reader of these notes living at Bochelle, HI., writes asking what Is the best time to set out a strawberry bed; also If she can renovate an old bed so that It will be worth while In the section In which our correspondent lives we believe a new bed would give best results if the plants were set out the latter part of April, or about the time when potatoes are planted. To have the most satisfactory bed the plants should be large and thrifty, and the ground In which they are plantetiV shonld be enriched with well rotted manure and made fine and mellow. If the variety of berry set Is a vigorous grower the plants should be put in rows three feet apart and a boat two feet apart in the row. To have berries that are a delight, a dozen or eighteen of which will fill a quart measure, one should get pedigreed plants frm some responsible grower. Such plant will cost a trifle more than the coin mon, runty plants, but the returns at picking time will more than justly the additional expense. The bed sho:i d be kept thoroughly tilled during tht growing season und free from weeds and blossoms that develop should L snipped off. When the ground is firm ly frozen after winter "sets In the bei should be covered with a coat of about three Inches of clean straw, which car; be raked from the crown of the rovr at the proper time in the spring and allowed to furnish a covering for the earth between. In answer to the in qulry about the old bed we would say that we believe it can be renovated .i that tt will give good results. In doin: this one should first cut all growth 01 the bed close with a scythe, Including plants and weed3. If this dries suB ciently It should be burned on th' bed with any other litter that may b lying close on the ground. Any rub blsh that does not burn should be raked off. One should next take a single horse plow or hand cultivator and break ui and thoroughly stir the soil between the original berry rows, leaving tin? plowed strips of not more than six inches wide. If quite a bit of loosed so11 Is rattled In on this strip it will do no barm.
