This reporter mentioned in a former issue that he knew of only one substantial Last Thursday evening Misses Alice and Ella Walker, entertained a number of their friends at a "Porch party" in honor of their attractive visitors, Misses Margaret and Alma Lackey, of Richmond, and VeHa Scottow of Frank- fort. The yard and large porch were beautifully decorated with Japanese lanterns and punch was served from a large bowl banked about with ferns and flowers in the corner of the porch. Several vocal selections from Miss Margaret Lackey and expressions numbers from Miss Scottow were much enjoyed by all present. The Misses Walker were assisted in entertaining by Mrs. G. R. Reed. The following were present: Misses Madge Rosenfield, Edna Lewis, Mae Stults, Golda English, Nellie Follis, t, Margaret Todd, Ella Todd, Mary Ruth Summers, Lillie Judd, Zella Pelley, Katie Murrell, Margaret Lackey, Alma Lackey, Vella Scottow, Alice Walker, Ella Walker, Mrs. G.

Since he, has withdrawn we believe they will vote for Mr. Helm. The attacks that are being made by the few enemies of Mr. Helm in this county have no weight with the voters in this" precinct. Ve do not believe they do in this county or any county in the district. It is generally believed that those who make them know them to be untrue The writer believes that malice, hate and abuse will fail in this as always. There is not a precinct in the county which has more total abstainers from the use of strong drink than Parksville, and without an exception they say, as does this reporter, let them continue their abuse, only a few days more remain. ' Ad (Danville. Messenger ) When misrepresentation, villification and other abuses of an opponent must be resorted to, an aspirant for office certainly is skating upon very thin ice. The unwaranted attacks upon Hon. Harney Helm are being condemned by right thinking people and are making friends for him every day. For a time, Mr. Helm's friends were kept busy denying these Reports, but the practice of framing new ones has continued unthey are given little attention til y and absolutely no credence. An effort is now being made to throw off the temperance people by saying 'Anderson county .is solid for Mr. Helm," meaning to create the impression that none but whiskey people live in Anderson county. There are no people on better or more God's green earth than reside in Anderson county, and while It is true saloons and there are several large distilleries in the county, the population is not the whisky-soakehoodlum element hinted at when the attention of the temperance people is being constantly called to the fact that "Anderson is solid for Helm." The people are disgusted with such talk, and are going to show their feelings by voting for Mr. Helm. At present, every indication points to the nomination of Mr. Helm, but The Messenger desires to impress upon the voters the importance of going to the pohs and casting their ballots. His enemies are moving every stone, their pork barrel has been opened, and every effort will be put forth, so it behooves every friend of Congressman Helm to go to the polls and vote. The Messenger does not believe in party papers taking an active stand in races for nominations, but so vicious have been the attacks upon Mr. Helm, that duty has made it necessary to correct some of the unjust criticisms upon him. to-dalaw-abidin- Congressman Harvey Helm is having" printed in the newspapers of the Eighth Congressional District a letter which he wrote to Dr. Condit Vanarsdall, of Harrodsburg, last May. Dr. Varnars dall is the leading temperance man of Mercer county. He is one of the highest character of men in this section of the State, and is always fighting for the mormal uplift of the people. He wrote to Congressman Helm in order to locate him on the temperance question. and Bounds in Mercer County. (Harrodsburg Herald.) Two months ago with only Helm and Sullivan in the race for Congress, Congressman Helm would have gotten a big majority in Mercer county. But marvelous changes have occurred and according to the best political observers, Mercer is now distinctly a Sullivan county. At the same time it may be stated that Mercer is distinctly a temperance county and stands for men who have fought for temperance measures and who are conscientiously in favor of temperance legislation because they themselves personally believe in temperance. Judge Sullivan is such a man. He has worked for local option in Richmond; he forced the county unit plank in the last Democratic platform over the vigorous protest of the Courier-Journand Henry Watterson and after the great Democratic victory last fall he prepared the county unit bill which was adopted by the legislature. At this time the greatest al Resolutions. Friday evening Misses Edna Lewis and Mae Stults entertained for Misses Lackey and Scottew, with a hay ride. Quite a number were in the party and the night air was alive with merry laughter and music until a iate hour. Mr. J. B. Barbec -- City Farmer. Justice to whom justice is due is so well founded in the minds of the people that no one would be willing to dispute the right of the News in a statement of plain facts eyen though complimentary to a high degree. But few people know Mr. Barbee as a farmer, a man deeply interested in making the earth yield its most abundant crops, but all the same a visit to his farm in the suburbs of Columbia would not leave a doubt. His farm, slightly less tha 100 acres, almost level and easy of access, is crowded with beautiful meadows and luxuriant corn fields. Mr. Barbee bought this land some three or four years ago, and at that time it was not considered a farming proposition, but he has mastered the old waste fields, and now has nearly thirty acres of as fine meadow as the writer ever saw here or elsewhere. Timothy and clover almost shoulder high, thick as it can stand and not a weak spot in the boundary. The corn, age considered, is equal to the grass, and bids fair to measure up 12 to 15 barrels per acre. How the change When did it occur? tc-d- ay The answer; intelligent progressive methods applied with industry. The pld fields were tiled, being wet land, and manured and cultivated scientifically has wrought a wonderful change..

' resigned. ed Although Helm had been in Congress five years he had established no record, As often charged by the temperance peopie, he had at all times been "asleep on temperance legislation-Ther- e was no way.to locate him by his past record, f His reply to Dr. Varnarsdall's letter was that he would support an interstate shipment bill provided it was constitutional. It was a known fact that Congressman Helm had also been "asleep" during the local option elections at Stanford. When the temperance people were waging a fight to bust the saloon?, Congressman Helm went to "sleep" as usual and did not vote. This naturally made many temperance people suspicious, as they realized that a man who wonld not vote to take the saloons out of his own town would do but little toward the passage of an interstate shipment law in Washington. Hon. Jere Sullivan has always voted to oust the saloons from Richmond. When a member of the legislature he made a vigorous fight for the adoption of the county unit law and when he wrote the Democratic state platform last fall he forced into it the county unit plank over the vigorous protest of the urnal, Henry Watterson and a large element of the whiskey Democrats. After the adoption of the platform fend the great victory of the Democratic ticket, Judge Sullivan en dorsed the county unit bill which was adopted by the legislature. All the the time Congressman Helm was "asleep." Now, at this time it would be interesting to know how Dr. Vanarsdall stands Ad. in this race between Helm and Sullivan.

Jere A. Sullivan's effort to make people here believe that he tore his shirt to have Casey placed in the 8th Congressional district is not fooling anyone in the least. In fact we doubt very much if Mr. Sullivan knew a half dozen men in Casey unti 1 he became a candidate, and it . is unreasonable to suppose that a man with congressional aspirations, as Mr. Sullivan would favor the admission of a county when he was so little known Mr. Sullivan will have to give some reasons why he passed sleepless nights and ripped his nether garments to take us from under the dominion of Caleb Powers before very many Casey democrats believe his story. The truth is Mr. Sullivan wants to 'go to Congress and wants to go mighty bad, and seems disposed to tell most any kind of story to get there. But Casey county democrats are on to his racket, and we are willing to wager the best old hen on the place that Harvey Helm polls 95 out of 100 votes on August 3. Mark this prediction and see how nearly correct we are. Middle-bor- e Correspondence in Interier JourAd nal. Rev. G. A. Joplin, who is engaged in Sunday school work, was in Adair last week.

That many dairymen sacrifice the quality of their products with great consequent loss because they do not appreciate the necessity for absolute cleanliness in order to prevent transmission of a host of diseases is the belief of E.

Stockweli said recently, discussing the subject "Numerous instances have been observed in which outbreaks of typhoid fever, scarlet fever and diphtheria, by their sudden and, explosive character, affecting families living on streets and in localities supplied by the same milkman, naturally pointed to the milk as. a common cause."

In 1 fI vj EW 5 POTTED GHOSTS. An African Take Thy Goods and Go." Always over the head of the Arab woman hangs the shadow of divorce. Nowhere in the world does the law so facilitate the separation of man and iwife as In those lands so fittingly named the Barbary states. If an Arab grows tired of his wife's looks or her actions or her dress, if he wishes to replace her with another or If he is weary of married life and does not wish any wife at ail he does not need to go to the trouble or nominal expense of divorcing her, but gets rid of her instead by the simple process of "repudiation," which consists in saying to her, "Woman, get thee hence: take thy things and go." For the man this is a case of "heads I "win, tails you lose." for. though he is free to marry again, the woman is not and can obtain a legal release only by returning to him the money which he paid for her. Without her husband's consent a woman can obtain a divorce only if she is able to prove that he beats her without sufficient provocation, if he refuses her food, clothing or shelter or If she discovers a previous wooing on her husband's part, for all previous betrothals or offers of marriage, even though the lady refused him, constitute grounds for divorce.

The typical Dutch farmhouse is square, one storied, with a pyramid shaped roof. The space between the apex of the roof and the ceiling of the dwelling part is generally used as a storehouse for winter food for the cattle. The living room door opens into the stable, for the cattle are invariably housed under the same roof as the family. The homes vary little in their furnishings. , One always sees bright strips of carpet, a highly polished center table, where the family Bible is displayed, and a glass dresser, with its shelves filled with rare old brass and delft ware. The most curious thing about the houses are the sleeping quarters-uniq- ue and certainly unhealthy from the modern viewpoint, which requires pleuty of fresh air in the bedrooms. The cheesemaker's family sleeps in beds built in cuoboard-lik- e recesses in the wall and as far from the window j as possible. There is a door similar to ' s that of a cupboard, and this is kept closed during the day in order that the bed may be hidden from view. The stuffy condition of this walled in bed-- , room can be readily imagined. The linen is always snowy white, and the jf whole makeup presents an attractive appearance even to the decorated strap j Ij suspended from the ceiling and used to j assist the occupant of the couch to rise, j?
