Mr. Leslie Graves, of A Very Strict Ruling by the Comp- Killing in Russell County. Last Wednesday morning, about 9 o'clock, Felix Long was shot and killed near Sano, in Russell county, just over the Adair line, by John Davidson. We have failed to learn the particulars, but Mr. George Hunn, who was at Sano, at the time of the killing, states that he was informed that the trouble came up over the removal of tobacco from Davidson's .barn. Long was about 30 year old and he was at Davidson's residence when the trouble started. Davidson is about sixty-fiv- e years old. Soon after the killing Davidson left his home, going in the direction of Tenneseee, officers pursuing him. Double Wedding. Mill-town, Good RoadsFrom Rowena. Surrendered. John Davidson, who killed Felix Long, near Sano, the first of last week, went to Jamestown early Thursday morning and surrendered to the authorities.

When the late road law was enforce, I was a member of the Russell Fiscal Court. The Court seemed to be in a quandrary as to how to proceed under said law. I suggested that we comply with the law put in a road vote, levy the tax in full and see if we could get the roads so we could travel thera. This carried. Mr. F. W. Leach was elected road engineer, and as soon as possible the road work begun. Quite a number of bad hills were made good all over the county. The bad hills were made new. making much better grades. The Fiscal Court has recently made an appropriation to build a pike from Jamestown to Russell Springs. After this, start South and build a bridge across Greasy Creek. Let the good work go on. There is plenty of limestone in the red clay, muddy hills. There are men who will talk against a road tax, but when the roads are built, they will be the best pleased of all others. So, I again say, let the good work go on. I can get a contribution of a few hundred dollars, and I am ready to commence. W. A. Carnes.

There is another class, but not so many of them, that say we can't build the roads, and that it would not be fair, as those living two or three miles from the roads that would be made, would not receive the same benefit as those that live on the roads. These fellows are property owners and they are against advancement in schools, churches, farming or roads. They would not spend one dollar if they could get one dollar and a half in return for it. There is another class that more than doubles the other two classes. They are most all tax payers and are for advancement on all lines. They are for the 25cts tax on the hundred dollars and are very anxious to have the roads built. These men ace talking roads and say that if we keep on, on the old system of plowing and digging up the road late in the fall, as has been the custom of late years, that travel will soon be stopped during winter and spring and they are not in favor of that kind of work as it and the taxes here before spent, have been a failure as all well know is true, that have traveled any of our county roads this winter. They are for that 'that will stand the much increased travel and heavy hauling that go over the roads. I often hear remarks like this from good men that they will not support men for office who are not for the roads. Let us ke,ep the road question hot till the magistrates meet and show them that a majority of the people are in favor of building the pikes. We should not let other counties be ahead of us in this good work of building roads. We can not make out with roads that we could fifty structor.

Only one out of every thirteen of the predictions of last winter were verified, but if our readers are satisfied we are, and will take up the old thing again as we know how.

McFarland a candidate for Circuit Court Clerk of Eussell county, sub- ject to the action of the Republican voters of said county, as expressed at the August primary. The Fiscal Court of Adair county will meet in extra session next Fridayand Saturday to consider the question of road building under the State road law. If this county receives State aid it must apply for it before the fourth of March. So to determine what shall be done the Magistrates are called to consider this question only. We are not directed by any one to ask the people of this county to attend this extra session of court, but since it is the most important movement toward progress, within the reach of the people, and since the burden as well as the pleasure and profits of good roads must be bourne by the taxpayers of the county, we feel that every citizen interested in this proposition should be present. If you believe in good roads and believe in using the great advantages offered us under the State aid road law, don't trust others to represent you in this vital movement.

Mr. McFarland is one of the best citizens of Russell county. He was born and reared in the Row-en- a precinct, and has been identified with the Republican party since he became a voter. He came from a prominent family, and when you see a McFarland in Russell county, you may know that he is a Republican. The subject of this notice is not inexperienced as" a clerk, come years ago he served his county, as clerk of this court, by appointment, for about one year, making a very faithful officer, . his work showing that he was well qualified for the position. He is a citizen whose habits are correct, and we feel sure that his nomination would be pleasing to many warm, personal friends.. Mr. McFarland expects to mingle with the voters of his county before the primary and personally present his claims. while en route for his quarterly meeting, at Mell, stopped over night here, last Wednesday. n C.

These they closely watch as they make their way into the dangerous sections of the mine, and as soon as one of the little feathered singers becomes Insensible they seek safety at once. Not, however, before they have transferred the little fellow into a cage charged with life giving oxygen, which immediately restores him to his former well being, for they are gratefully mindful of their debt to him. mF AiiSiTi jpi9p&2pipjpjp X f T HANDS SAYS PRESIDENT TO GREAT BRITAIN.

"INFANTRY INVASION OF ENGLAND FOILED." London, Feb., 3. The London Daily Telegraph publishes the following: "The German cruisers' raid of last Sunday week had more significance than a mere repetition of the Scarborough exploit. "The best information, confirmed by several significant orders, s that the birthday present to the Kaiser was intended to be much more substantial than the slaughter of a few babies. "When the German battle cruiser squadron came into the North Sea there was already lying at one of their naval ports, ful-2- y armed and equipped, a flotilla of transports full of troops. "The enemy's plan was to lure our cruisers to destruction among the mines and submarines of Heligoland, and when that had been accomplished to dispatch the transports Sunday night at full speed to the English coast, which it was intended they should reach on Monday morning."

The Belgian positions on the Yser near Westende again have fceen the scene of fierce attacks by the Germans, in which the bayonet was used by the troops on both sides of the trenches, the Telegraaf states in a dispatch from tb Sluis correspondent. The Germans, after the usual preparatory bombardment by artillery, the correspondent says; 'made repeated but unsuccessful The next disease that wish to speak about is Pellagra. It is a very obscure disease, and one about which there is very much to learn. It has been known in some of the countries of Europe for two or three hundred years, and yet the doctors in these countries have found out very out very little about it. It has been known in some of our Southern States for several years, but has lately beenfoutd in Kentucky. We have had a few cases in this county, but some have died and some have moved away, so there is no case so far' as I know in the county at this time. In the month of August last year, I, with all the Health Officers of the State, and a good many other physicians was called to Pineville, to a conference for the purpose of investigating an alarming spread of the disease in some of' the mountain counties of Kentucky. I saw at that conference about one hundred cases of pellagra, in all its stages, from the very mildest to the most severe. I saw it in all ages, from seventy-fiv- e years down to one. These cases had been brought there by doctors from the surrounding country, co show to the visiting physicians in all its forms, and to try and find out something about it There were experts there from the United States Hospital service in Washington City, from Kew York, from the far Southern States, from Cincinnati and from Louisville. Some were there who had had three or four years experience in South Carolina and Georgia, in an effort to solve the problem of the cause of this mysterious disease The symptoms of this malady are rather peculiar. It is an eruption which takes place on the hands and arms, on the feet and legs, on the face and a collarette around the neck. It affects both hands just alike, and the same way with the feet and legs It begins very much like a sunburn, just brown at first, but afterwards breaks out in little sores which grow together until the affected part gets to be one general sore. One very remarkable feature is, it affects the mind, and many of the cases of three or four years standing, become complete imbeciles ' Writers have never been able to agree as to the cause of this strange malady, although many theories have been advanced. The first was, that it was caused from eating "bread made from 'unsound .corn, and this has been ex ploded, some are still holding to it. Another theory is, that the disease is caused by the bite of the buffalo gnat. I do not know anything about the buffalo gnat, and I think that nobody knows much about it Another fly figures as a cause of pellagra. That lly has an unspellable and name. It dwells largely in Africa, and in some of our most Southern States. Before it can figure laige-las a cause of any thing, it will have to change its name. Another theory is that pellagra is caused by the bites of bed bugs. I think the weight of evidence is in favor of the bed bugs. One man whom I saw at Pineville, had been three years investigating pellagra in South Carolina and Georgia. He was sent there by the United Public Health Service, ne was thor oughly convinced tnat the bed bug was alone responsible for all the troub le ,hat has been brought about by peilagra. This man of whom I am speaking, said, that in all the thousands of homes' that "he had visited and examined, he never had found a case of pellagra where there were no bed bugs. So it would be hard for the bed bug to prove an alibi. And why should the bed bug nob be pronounced guilty? It is a well established fact that the flea is a spreader of bubonic plague. It is a fact that the common body louse is the sole cause of typhus fever. The Eocky mountain tick is the cause of the Eocky mountain 'spotted fever. The common house fly is one of the numerous causes of typhoid fever and 'consumption, and the mosquito .is the known and admitted cause of all malarial troubles. unpro-nouncab- le y After returning from Pineville, I became thoroughly convinced on this subject, the first time 1 undertook to sleep in a bed buggie bed It was only a few nights after I reached home. There was a quack doctor lived back in the I was called away from home, and Who used hills, concoctions to cure huspent the night in an adjoining counman ills; ty.

Of course I kicked I thought at the same time of pellagra breaking out on the feet and ankles I "kicked like a half broke steer," but it did no good. I got out of bed and put on my socks, which stopped the raid upon my feet, but the trouble was transferred to my hands and wrists. I had no gloves, cut I wrapped my hands up in the sheet and the pesky critters then went for my face and neck They worked on my face and neck and I worked on the bugs, until I was completely exhausted, and went to sleep Now these animals seemed to know tion. One he called one tweedledum, one tweedle dee, Both made "from the bark of the same blooming tree; He skinned the bark upward to make tweedle dum Aud to make tweedledee, he skinned downwards, by gum. And the people whenever they got sick in bed, Swallowed whichever the quack doctor said, For the people are easy and grafters are slick, And more suckers wear breeches than swim in the creek.

Black, of Barbourville, Knox County, has issued the following statement announcing his candidacy for the Democratic nomination for Lieutenant Governor in the Primary Election, "August 7, 1913. Democrats of Kentucky: Recognizing, in the fullest sense, your rlgfct to choose at the Primary Election to be held in August, 1915, those whom you prefer to be the candidates of the party to be voted for at the general election in next November, I am a candidate, subject to your will to be. expressed at said Primary Election, for the nomination for Lieutenant Governor on the Democratic ticket. I am induced, in a measure, to make this announcement by a desire of my own to serve the people of our splendid State in the capacity of Lieutenant Governor, and also, in a measure, by suggestions of a few individuals whose personal and political friendship is real and in whoso judgment I have, and ought to have confidence. My past fealty to the Democratic party mayv.be accepted by you, I confidently trust, as a sufficient guaranty that I shaH, whether nominated or not, give to the ticket you may name and the principles for which our party stands, very faithful support, for that course has been my habit at all time3 since reaching legal age. If nominated and elected Lieutenant Governor, I promise you and the people ot Kentucky to bring to the discharge of the duties of the office the very best service of which I may be capable. Whether or not I am equipped to properly discharge those duties, It is not for me to say. I submit that to your judgment and decision. I believe in a just and wise economy In public as well as in private business, and cordially agree that no one should be entrusted with responsible office who is not able and willing to perform his whole duty to the public whose interests he asks to be commissioned to serve. I believe those on whom the Constitution places the duty and responsibility of legislation for the people of the State ought to industriously employ the time the General Assembly may be in session, to needed legislation, complete that as quickly as a proper regard for the best interests of the. State will permit, and then adjourn, diligently avoiding every unnecessary expense to' th . people. I have no doubt that those who have to do in an official way with. ttheiniqney of the community, or charged with the administration ot public affairs, ought 'to act In relation to such, according to that high standard which the most prudent, careful, just and intelligent exercise in the conduct of their' private business. elected Lieutenant Governor, that standard shall b my .guide injthetlabor the law assigns to me. In submitting my candidacy, I Invite the '"scrutiny of the "people of Kentucky as to my fitness for the preferment thus sought .v- . Very respectfully, '"-If - -- Barbourville, Ky., December 28, 1914. - "'". JAMES D. BLACK. r:
