The Public generally does nofc understand the workings of the new road law, seeming to think that the roads are to be worked by taxation alone Such is not the case. The law provides that the roads can be worked exclusively by taxation or by the calling out of hands as heretofore or by both taxation and the calling out of hands." The Fiscal court of this county has elected that the roads of this county be worked as heretofore by the calling out of hands. That all males between the age of IS and 50 not exempted by the county. Judge are subject to service on the road for C days or more in the year not over 2 days in the week. The office of overseer was abolished the 1st day of Dec. 1912. Hereafter the hands will be warned out by the county Road engineer or one of his assistants. The county is now being laid off into road districts aud assistant engineecs are being appointed by the county Judge and Co., Rd., Engr. to look over see after and warn out hands in each of the said districts. A partial list of districts and the assistant engineers is appended, District No 1 Russell Springs Wm. McKinley, assistant enRoad gineer. District Mo 2 Stanford Road D. M. Moore, assistant engineer.

Our next move will be to try and inaugurate a system that will enable the people, of each road district to grade up and put the roads in condition by the use of their teams, and not require so much hard of all labor. We are in the people who want better roads,(and believe that includes every body) and their indulgence till e can work out a sextion to enable us to begin to get day light on the road question.

GRADE FOUR fronted the officials of Taylor county fifteen years, an agreement was reached last week by which holders of bonds issued by that county in 1888, and which were defaulted in 1898, are to receive 55 per cent of the interest and principal. The decision to compromise was reached at the close of an all day conference at the office of the Fidelity & Columbia Trust Company between parties interested. The entire indebtedness of the county, including both principal and interest, is $250,000 of which amount the bond holders will receive 55 per cent. This will be something over the amount of the issue as put out in 188S. It. was announced that the county will raise the money by a tax levy. Only one levy will be made, being the intention of the county officials to wipe out the entire indebtedness within one year. The compromise reached last night is subject to the approval of the Fiscal Court of Taylor county and bondholders, a large number of whom, however, were present at the conference. Three members of the Fiscal Court, Judge E. N. Tuckea, J. R. Sanders and J. T. Moss, composing a committee representing the county also-wer-e present. Judge Tucker and W. C. Montgomery, of Elizabethtown, who represents the bondholders, both declared the approval of the agreement was practically certain. It ia understood that the original proposition of Taylor county provided for settlement of the indebtedness on a 50 per cent basis, out the.bondhold ers wanted 55 per cent. An agree--meon this brsis was made after the three members of the Fiscal Court had conferred among themselves just before the close of the conference with the bondholders. v The Taylor county bonds grew out of the attempt to build the old Cumberland railroad. Numerous efforts; had been made to compromise the case aud considerable litigrtion had been instituted Saturday Courier-Journa- l. nt it A few days before Christmas Miss Nettie Clark, who is a very enthusiastic Epworth League workei, conceived the idea of bringing the members and their friends together to spend a few hours in social enjoyment. Arrangements were soon perfected, a program of exercises made out. and the society invited to meet in the anex of the Metbodist church Friday evening, December 27, 1912. By nine o'clock the room, which had been artistically decorated, was well filled with joj'ous faces, and for several hpurs happiness reigned supreme. There was a contest, and each member was given a subject to discuss. Before the closing hour delightful refreshments were served.

That may seem so unlikely to you that you do not even hope for an ending of your trouble, but permit us to assure you that it is not altogether impossible. If others can be cured permanently, and thousands have been, why not you? John R. Barker, of Battle Creek, Mich., is one of them.

The January American Magazine contains the first chapter of "Forty Years Of It," by Brand, Whitlock, Mayor of Toledo, Ohio. The first chapter is entitled "A Boy and His Grandfather," and includes as beauti ful a new true Lincoln story as has been published in many a day. It is a story of something that Abraham Lincoln said and did to Brand Whitlock's grandfather. Another interesting contribution in the January American Magazine is the first chapter of "The Diary of a Cop," in which a policeman tells how he took the first steps in his development into a grafter. Under the title "Is it True?' Albert Jay Nock reports an investigation made recently in London which seems to prove that the children of drunkards are not affected by the habits of their parents. James Montgomery Flagg furnishes some on good fooling text aud pictures the subject of a human being when he comes to buying an automobile. Oliver nerfort writes "Celebrities I Have Not Met." A collection of witty and wise letter by Mayor Gaynor of New York is presented. Fiction is contributed by Arnold Bennett, Edna Ferber, John Fleming Wilson, Samuel Merwin, Donal Ham ilton naines, and William Slalens.

Leigh Hunt Was a Champion, and Dr. Johnson Levied on Books. In a book of essays, "Americans and Others," Agnes Kepplier collects some notable Instances of a certain condescension in borrowers. Leigh Hunt and William Godwin had the trait developed to magnificent proportions: "It would be interesting to calculate the amount of money which Hunt's friends and acquaintances contributed to his support in life. Shelley gave him at one time 1,400. an amount which the poet could ill spare, and when he had no more to give wrote in misery of spirit to Byron, begging a loan for his friend and promising to repay it, as he felt tolerably sure Hunt never would. Byron, generous at first, wearied after a time of his position in Hunt's commissariat (it was like pulling man out of a river, he wrote to Moore, only to see him jump In again) and coldly withdrew. His withdrawal occasioned Inconvenience and has been sharply criticised." As for Godwin, when his daughter ran off with Shelley he refused to take Shelley's check for 1,000 if it were not made payable to a third person or "unless he could have the money without the formality of an acceptance." Crabb Robinson introduced him one evening to a gentleman named Rough. The nest day both Godwin and Rough called upon their host, each man expressing his regard for the other and each asking Robinson if he thought the other would be a likely person to lend A i)aIR COUNTS NEWS OUR CURIOUS COINCIDENCE.

He "paid back 10 after a lapse of twenty years and on his deathbed begged Sir Joshua Reynolds to forgive him a trifling loan." But in the matter of borrowed books the case was altered. "Johnson cherished a dim conviction that because he read and Garrick did not the proper place for Garrick's books was on his Johnson's bookshelves, a point which could never be settled between the two friends and which came near wrecking their friendship."

Now and then old rats become very cautious and will not touch the bait on a trap on which they can smell the, scent of the human. If any of our readers have such a proposition on their hands they would do well to get a brand new trap and put a new pair of cotton ilannel gloves on when they bait it. A very tempting bait for such rats is fresh meat, and the piece used should be fastened on to the tongue of the trap with a rubber baud or piece of wire. Many a farmer who has worked hard during his early and middle life and has earned a competence,, so that he no longer needs to stay in the tread mill to keep the wolf from gnawing the doorknob off, makes the very serious mistake of moving to town and doing largely nothing. This quitting work on high feed (for he usually keeps his hearty appetite) has been responsible for the sending of more retired farmers to an untimely grave between the aces of sixty and sixty-eigthan any other factor that, could be named.

Four hundred and fifty bushels of corn from eight acres that were almost worthless two years ago is the yield Mort Van Buskirk ot Kincald, Kan., received this year. Drainage did it. Here is the story: Mr. Van Buskirk wrote two years ago to H. B. Walker, state drainage and irrigation engineer at the Kansas Agricultural college, asking what he should do with an eight acre piece of swampy land covered with willows. This land never had produced anything. Mr. Walker advised him to drain the land, and he did. The land was planted to corn and yielded 430 bushels. Other corn in that neighborhood averaged from ten to forty bushels to the ncie. The cost of draining the land was $123 Mr. Van Buskirk values his corn at 50 cents a bushel, or )?22o. Besides the increased crop, he considers his land worth $1,000 more by the improvement ing contest, which had been conducted for a full year at the Storrs Agricultural college, in Connecticut, came to a close. The contest, which has been frequently reported in this department, has been one of unusual interest as well as of great practical value. Professor Cosgrove, who has had supervision of the contest, in speaking of the practical value of the contest calls particular attention to the fact that with proper care the tenderest breeds were kept in the severe and changeable New England climate in open front houses night and day, Avith too few birds in a house to affect its temperature. Only seventeen birds died during the year, which was less than 3.5 per cent, which shows the healthful-nes- s of plenty of fresh air as well as the splendid care and feeding which the fowls have. The final count, as kept, gives first prize for best pen of five hens to the White Leghorns of F. G. Yost of Pennsylvania, his fowls having laid 1,071 eggs, or an average of 214.2 each. The owner gets as rewards two $100 silver cups, a cash prize of ?30 and several minor prizes. Second place in the contest was won by a pen of White Wyandottes owned by Beu-la- h farm, Ontario, these birds making a score of 1.0G9 eggs, but two eggs be hind the winning pen. The Marwood farm pen of White Leghorns made a score of 1,042 eggs and was the only other pen to make a score better than a thousaud eggs. The next six places in the contest were Avon by pens of White Leghorns with scores ranging from 0S2 down to 91S eggs each. The remaining seven, pens to make a score of more than 000 eggs were respectively in order of performance. Buff Leghorns, Brown Leghorns, S. C. Rhode Island Reds (two pens), White Wyandottes, Barred Rocks and White Plym- outh Rocks. The best authenticated record of any individual bird was made by a S. C. Rhode Island red pullet belonging to Mrs. Harris Lehman of Kentucky, her scorecard showing 234 eggs. Professor Cosgrove contends that special mention should be made of the pen of English White Leghorns belonging to Mr. Barron, which led in the early months of the race, and for some time after until two of the five layers died. It is thought that had this pen remained intact it would have won first place with ease. Immediately upon conclusion of the contest summarized above another contest, to last a year, was started. The contest is valuable chiefly because it has directed the attention of poultry raisers to practical performance in egg production rather than to fine points and fine feathers, features that are unduly emphasized in the average poultry show. "MULTUM IN An Anxioos Experience Off the Rock Bound Coast of Korea. THE ing Monthly: "About the liveliest eight days of my life were spent in a small boat on the west coast of Korea." he writes. "I was in an open boat, a sampan, on a rocky coast where there were no light houses and where the tides ran from thirty to sixty feet. My crew were Japanese fishermen. We did not speak each other's language. Yet there was nothing monotonous about that trip. Never shall I forget one particular cold, bitter dawn, when in the thick of driving snow we took in sail and dropped our small anchor. "The Japanese crawled under a communal rice mat and went to sleep. I joined them, and for several hours we dozed fitfully. Then a sea deluged us with icy water and we found several inches of snow on top of the mat. "It soon became a case of swamping at our anchor". Seas were splashing on board in growing volume, and we balled constantly. And still my fisherman crew eyed the surf battered shore and did nothing. "At last, after many narrow escapes from complete swamping, the fishermen got into action. All hands tailed on to the anchor and hove it up. For'ard, as the boat's head paid off, we set a patch of sail about the size of a flour sack. And we headed straight for the rocky shore. I unlaced my ".hoes, unbuttoned my greatcoat and cotit and was ready to make a quick partial strip a minute or so before we struck. But we didn't strike, and as we rushed in 1 saw the beauty of the situation. Before us opened a narrow channel, frilled at its mouth with breaking seas. Yet long before, when I had scanned the shore closely, there had been no such channel. I had forgotten the thirty foot tide. And it was for this time that the Japanese had so precariously waited." The perils of the small boat at sea are told by Jack London in an article on "Small Boat Sailing" in the Yacht- LOUISVILLE TIMES FOR 1913 BRIGHTER, BETTER, BIGGER THAN EVER THE REGULAR PRICE OF THE LOUISVILLE TIMES IS If YOU $5.00 A YEAR.
