A Fable and Not a Fabie. Last Tuesday af tternoon while Mr. Sam Lewis, a produce dealer of. this place, was en route from Campbells-vill- e to Columbia, a negro man attempted to hold him up, on the pike, near the railroad crossing. Mr. Lewis was in his wagon, driving in an ordinary gait, when the negro stepped in front of his team, catching the bridle of one of the horses. Mr. Lewis demanded to know what he wanted, and was told to alight from the wagon and give up. This demand was refused, but the assailant persisted in his entreaties for Mr. Lewis to alight from his wagon. Finally the darkey goc close enough for Mr. Lewis to strike him across the face with his whip. The horses were then turned loose and Mr. Lewis escaped. Other par ties came along about this time, among the number Mr. Reed Caldwell, and evidently he wa3 attacked by the same negro, who tried to stop him. When Mr. Caldwell met Mr. Lewis he asked "What is the matter with that negro, he tried to hold me up?" Mr. Lewis then related his experience with him, and it was decided to call officer, Owen Gaines, who from Campbellsville, carcame ried negro to town and delivered him to the jailer. The negro was drunk and attempted to make his assaults with rocks. Mr. Lewis did not have a revolver nor any othei weapon. The assailant will evidently be brought to ot justice. Big Show at parlor Circle Once upon a time there was a wise father who had a son, John, who lived near him. the son had an intelligent, sensible wife, bright, promising children, and owned a good, but very much neglected farm. The father called the son to him one day and said, "John, I have been looking over.your farm1 and premises, and I discover thatjthey are not what they should be. You are not deriving either the pleasure or profit from them that you should Your fencing is down, and in decay; your fields are overgrown with sage and sassafras bushes, " your out houses are not sufficient to protect your stock; your dwelling needs a new roof and other repairs.

In other words I will put a dollar on every dollar you will advance in improving your farm. Think about it, son, and let me know what you will do about it, for if you do not act, I will give it to some other member of the family." John went home and told his wife what his father had said.- - John seemed to be hesitating halting between two opinions. His wife looked at him with wide open eyes, aud said; "John, you know" whenever it rains we have to put buckets and pans around to keep the house from flooding?" county leading from county seat to ' county seat (the work to be done under my direction) I will put a dollar in for the same purpose. In other words I will share with you equally the expense ot building the roads. I, your mother, wish you to prosper, and be happy and respectable, and I will aid you provided you will help yourself. All that is necessary is for your Fiscal court to signify its acceptance of the terms, and make its arrangement to join me in the work. If you refuses to act. I will use the money intended for for your improvement in some sister county of more public spirit, I am determined to make Kentucky a better Kentucky, and if you will help me I will make of you, Adair, what you outrht to be, one of the most beautiful and attractive daughters of the Commonwealth.

If you see no evidences of a serious ailment you will not be wron? if you quietly give it a dose of mild laxative that evening on putting it to bed. The remedy most generally recommended for this purpose is Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin, which mothers throughout the country have been giving their children for a quarter of a century.

When industry pays its bill it must make a sight draft upon agriculture for the amount, which the farmer is compelled to honor without protest. This check drawn upon agriculture may travel to and fro over the highways of commerce; may build cities; girdle the globe with bands of steel; may search hidden treasures in the earth or traverse the skies, but in the end it will rest upon the soil. No dollar will remain suspended in midair; it is as certain to seek the earth's surface as an apple that falls from a tree. When a farmer buys a plow he pays the man who mined the metal, the woodman who felled the tree, the manufacturer who assembled the raw material and shaped it into an article of usefulness, the railroad that transported it and the dealer who sold him the goods. He pays the wages cf labor and capital employed in the transaction as well as pays for the tools, machinery, buildings, etc., used in the construction of the commodity and the same applies to all articles of use and diet of himself and those engaged in the subsidiary lines of industry. There is no payroll in civilization that does not rest upon the back of the farmer. He must pay the bills all of them. The total value of the nation's annual agricultural products is arourd $12,000,000,000, and it is safe to estimate that 95 cents on every dollar goes to meeting the expenses of subsidiary industries. The farmer does not work more than thirty minutes per day for himself; the remaining thirteen hours of the day's toil he devotes to meeting the payroll of the hired hands of agriculture, such as the manufacturer, railroad, commercial and other servants. illustrating the character of unnecessary expenses to which we refer. Union Opposes "Full Crew" BUI. The Texas Farmers' Union registered its opposition to this character of legislation at the last annual meeting held in Fort Worth, Tex., August 4, 1914, by resolution, which we quote, as follows: "The matter of prime importance to the farmers of this state is an adequate and efficient marketing system; and we recognize that such a system is impossible without adequate railroad facilities, embracing the greatest amount of service at the least possible cost We further recognize that the farmers and producers in the end pay approximately 95 per cent of the expenses of operating the railroads, and it is therefore to the interest of the producers that the expenses of the common carriers be as small as is possible, consistent with good service and safety. We, therefore, call upon our courts and juries to bear the foregoing facts in mind when dealing with the common carriers of this state, 'and we do especially reaffirm the declarations of the last annual convention of our State Union, opposing the passage of 'full-crebill before the legislature of Texas." the thirty-thirThe farmers of Missouri in the last election, by an overwhelming majority, swept this law off the statute book of that state, and it should come off of all statute books where it appears and no legislature of this nation should pass such a law or similar legislation which requires unnecessary expenditures. The same rule applies to all regulatory measures which increase the expenses of industry without giving corresponding benefits to the public. There is ofttimes a body of men assembled at legislatures and they have a right to be there who, in their zeal for rendering their a service, sometimes favor an increase in the expenses of industry without due regard for the men who bow their backs to the summer's sun to meet the payroll, but these committees, while making a record for themselves, rub the skin off the shoulders of the farmer by urging the legislature to lay another burden upon his heavy load and under the lash of "be it enacted" goad him on to pull and surge at the traces of civilization, no matter how he may sweat, foam and gall at the task. When legislatures "cut a melon" for labor they hand the farmer a lemon. The farmers of the United States are not financially able to carry "dead heads" on their payrolls. Our own hired hands are not paid unless we have something for them to do and we are not willing to carry the hired help of dependent industries unless there is work for them. We must therefore insist upon the most rigid law-maker- s, d f" i This is the "Thornhill" Wagon -the Wagon that Must Make Good the labor the aid of the most ingenious modern machinery have been employed to make the Thornhill wagon. The wheels are made with excessive care. For the spokes the manufacturers use the finest hickory machine driven to insure the right dish.

We have not taken the War in Europe as an Excuse to asR Advance on Anything The average country boy and girl have very little opportunity for real enjoyment, and have, as a rule, a vague conception of the meaning of pleasure and recreation. It is to fill this void in the lives of country youth that the rural church has risen to the necessity of providing entertainment, as well as instruqtion, to its membership among the young. The children and young people of the church should meet when religion is not even mentioned. It has been found safest for them to meet frequently under the direction and care of the church. To send them into the world with no social training exposes them to grave perils and to try to keep them out of the world with no social privileges is sheer folly. There is a social nature to both old and young, but the social requirements of the young are imperative. The church must provide directly or indirectly some modern equivalent for the husking bee, the quilting bee and the singing schools of the old days. In one way or another the social instincts of our young people must have opportunity for expression, which may take 'the form of clubs, parties, picnics or other forms of amusement. One thing is certain, and that is that the church cannot take away the dance, tle card party and the theatre unless it can offer in its place a satisfying substitute in the form of more pleasing recreation.

A glance at the freight tariffs abundantly proves this assertion. Cotton, the leading agricultural product of the South, already bears the highest freight rate of any necessary commodity in commerce, and the rate on agricultural products as a whole is out of proportion with that of the products of the factory and the mine. We offer no schedule of rates, but hope the commission will be able to give the railroad such an increase in rates as is necessary without levying a further toll upon the products of the plow. The instance seems to present an opportunity to the Railroad Commissions to equalize the rates as between agricultural and other classes of freight without disturbing the rates on staple farm products.

In providing for enjoyment the church uses one of the greatest methods by which human society bas developed. Association is never secure until it is pleasurable; in play the instinctive aversion of one person for another is overcome and the social mood is fostered. Play is the chief educational agency in rural communities .and in the play-daof human childhood social sympathy and social habits are evolved. As individuals come together in social gatherings, their viewpoint is broadened, their ideals are lifted and finally they constitute a cultured and refined society. It is plain, therefore, that the church which aims at a perfected society must use in a refined and exalted way the essential factors in social evolution and must avail itself of the universal Instinct for play. If the church surrounds itself with social functions which appeal to the young among its membership, it will fill a large part of the lamentable gap in rural pleasures and will reap the richest reward by promoting a higher and better type of manhood and womanhood. y We do not know what constitutes a General BlacRsmithing basis for rate making and have never heard of anyone who did claim to Buggy, Carriage and Wagon Repairing neatly know much about it, but if the pros- done.
