THE ADAIR COUNTY NEWS KENTUGKY K Leading Facts of the P0L1TOL Past Week SPEAKINGS. McDERMOTT'S a Republican administration. Governor, down "To The "Soys in the trenches who hope to get jobs under Paducah, Ky., June 26, 1915. (SpeLieutenant cial Correspondence.) Goyernor E. J. McDermott spoke here Thursday afternoon to about 250 people. There were present a number of Prohibitionists and Republicans, and several Stanley supporters, all of whom, regardless of their choice for Governor, honor and respect Mr. McDermott. The address "was characteristic of he speaker eloquent and outspoken an the issues he deems paramount in Kentucky As in his previous speeches, Mr. McDermott gave his reasons for opposing atate-wld- e prohibition. He served in .the Constitutional Convention and '.helped place in the constitution the .provision that enables each county to unit, without in--1 2e a sterference from outside counties. In jthe last session of the legislature, when the present County Unit Law' was passed making the constitutional provision fully effective, Mr. McDer-sao- tt stood for the Jeffersonian fundamental democratic doctrine that Seople can govern themselves on such snatters better than outsiders can govern them. In this he agrees with his opponent, pro3Ir. A. O. Stanley, that state-wid- e hibition is not an effective temperance measure, but, on the contrary, would iafce away, without the consent of the right of a d ..governed, that ifree people to regulate for themselves, within their own county, moral and social affairs, such as the license or .prohibition of saloons. He maintains ihat whenever the people of a county, whose elected officers must enforce .the law, if it is to be effective, want to abolish Baloons, they can do so vinfipr the County Unit Law; and that that prohibition thus obtained will be rexactly what the people want. If statewide prohibition is forced upon the people of any county, neither they nor the officers they elect will obey or enforce the objectionable law. Such contempt of law is hurtful to the character of the citizenship, and tends to cause disrespect for other laws. Prom Paducah, Mr. McDermott went to Marion, Sturgis and Morganfield, 'Where he addressed rather small audiences, owing to the fact that farmers are busy with their crops. to-daself-govgrni--- Nevertheless, Mr. Newman declares, like the good Democrat he Is, "The Democrats will continue In power In Kentucky, and indicate to the world that Kentucky Is behind the National Democratic administration, and in line for the presidential election In 1916." Some say that Mr. Newman feels that President Wilson's opinion that prohilocal option, and not state-wid- e bition, is the proper method of controlling the liquor question, meets the anDroval of Kentucky Democrats, who are enthusiastically behind the President in all his great policies. Mr. Newman is a Democrat of the truest type, and as Commissioner of Agriculture has, accomplished, greater results for the development of the farming interests of the state than all his predecessors combined. He is a tireless, fearless worker, and has done things worth while since he has been in office. STANLEY SPEAKS TO RECORD. BREAKING CROWDS IN THE THIRD DISTRICT. fy Unit law was all that is needed to banish the saloon from any county where a majority of the people are opposed to them. The recent wet and dry election in Shelby county proved prohibition ia to them that state-wid- e not necessary, for they voted oul saloons, and the county is now as dry as a powder horn. At the same time they do not want to destroy the vast distilling properties in the state that pay nearly a million dollars in taxes, for if they do, they well know that other property, already heavily taxed, will have to take up that burden In addition to what they now carry, and that without accomplishing anything for real temperance. With a state treasury already over two million dollars in debt, the taxpayers do not fancv adding another promillion on account of state-wid- e hibition, for they know they will have the whole thing to pay in the end, while the office seekers who are riding the prohibition issue can take it easy. The bankrupt neighboring states of West Virginia and Tennessee, each with a debt of twelve milprohibition, lion dollars and state-widare warning danger signals to thoughtful people. e Sensible Women Know Foundation of Health As health talks to women become more general, both In the newspapers and on the platform, the mass of women tie beginning to realize what the more cultivated have always known, that od health cannot be found in a powder ox. The externals of health may be 'tained in that way, but the basis of i.calth lies deeper, and yet is just as easily obtained. The most important thing that a woman can do for herself, and about which she is often most neglectful, is to watch the condition of her stomach and bowels. The weary eyes, the bad breath, the frequent headaches, the .limples, the general air of lassitude is nine times out of ten the result of constipation or indigestion, or both. Many simple remedies can be obtained, but the best in the estimation of most women Is Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin. It 13 mild, pleasant to the taste and exactly suited to her needs. It ia far superior to salts, cathartic pills, waters, etc., which are entirely too violent. Women should see to it that they have at least one movement of the bowels each day, and when showing any tendency to constipation should take Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin in the small dose prescribed. A brief use of it will so train the stomach and bowel muscles that all forms of medicine can be dispensed with. These opinions are voiced by thousands of women, after personal experience, among the- -i Miss V. Li. Moore, 32 Claiborne St., Nashville, Tenn., and Florence Cook, Lucas, Ky. Anyone wishing to make-i- trial of thi3 remedy before buying it in the regular way of s. druggist at fifty cents or one dollar a large bottle (family size) can have a sample bottle sent to the home free of charge by simply addressing Dr. W.

(SpeCorrespondence.) The of Commissioner of Agriculture JT. W. Newman from the race for Governor was somewhat of a surprise to many, although it was conceded that lHarry McChesney, backed as he is by n League and General the Percy Haley, had much the larger following among the "extra drys," as Mr. "Newman expresses it. Evidently Mr. Newman realized that he could not make much headway as a state-widagainst the candidate selected by Dr. League superPalmer, the intendent, and O.

Mr. 3IcChesney was selected as the standHis ard bearer of the prohibitionists. large leadquarters are busy, with a force of clerks, and ample funds to make an aggressive campaign. In his card of withdrawal Mr. Newman says he has canvassed and spoken in more than forty counties, and has concluded that there are only two candidates for Governor who are seriously considered in the race. Though he did not mention names, it is conceded that he meant Stanley and McChesney. Furthermore, he says the Democratic party is facing a crisis that may endanger its success, unless harmony is restored and all unite for victory in November, which he pledges ."himself to aid in accomplishing. The 'harmony and unanimity of the Republican platform convention at Lexington this month, at which they reaffirm-.ethe County Unit Law, and declined "in their'n," to take any state-wid- e with Judge O'Rear and Dr. Bruner pledging their support to the Republican ticket, was a distinct warning that the Republicans are to be in the running this fall, ready and anxious to take advantage of any Democratic mistakes. They believe that a statewide prohibition Democracy will assure Republican victory this fall.

Special Correspondence.) Hon. A. 0. Stanley finished the busiest week of at this place, his campaign speaking to the largest crowd that has attended a political speaking In this county in years, estimated at to 6,000. Enthusiasm was unbounded, and, to all appearance, Stanley men were the only kind of Democrats in Simpson county. Mr. Stanley began the week's campaign at Glasgow, where a attendance greeted him. It was the largest crowd that has been in Glasgow since the Civil War. Practically everybody seemed to be for Stanley. From Glasgow, Mr. Stanley went to Edmonton, Metcalfe county; Brownsville, Edmonton county, and Scotts-villAllen county. Everywhere the attendance was larger than the court houses could accommodate, and win dows, and standing room were occupied by eager Democrats, notwithstanding the fact that the farmers are behind with their work and in the middle of their harvests. The masterly appeals Mr. Stanley is making to the people to stand by President Wilson in his splendid leadership of the party is received most enthusiastically. It Is apparent everywhere that the people want a business administration, with such a revision of the tax laws as will enable the state to pay off the $2,000,000 state debt, without laying any heavier tax burden upon the farms, live stock and other tangible property that now pays the expense of government. Millions upon millions of property that escapes assessment and pays no taxes mustbe put upon the tax duplicate and made to pay its share of the taxes necessary to pay off the state debt, build good roads throughout the state, and improve the school system by having longer terms in the country and better paid teachers. The County Unit Law, passed by the' last legislature, meets the approval of the people. They do not want to exprohibition, periment with state-wid- e when under the County Unit system every county can vote out the saloons any time a majority of the people want to do so. The taxpayers do not want to destroy the $100,000,000 of taxable property in the state that is paying nearly a million dollars a year in taxes, and place upon the farms, factories, live stock and other property, already too heavily taxed, that additional burden, which would be necessary n state-wia- e proniDiuon were adopted. The slogan, "Stand by the President and the Democratic platforms, state and national, upon which- the party has won its greatest victories," meets the hearty approval of the people. to-da- y 5,-0- record-breakin- g e, recognized by his neighbors soon WELL DRILLER after his arrival from Kentucky JAMES P.

Speaking of life on a submarine, one of Uncle Sam's naval officers stationed On one of these under sea terrors says: "Every minute the men are in the submarine means the risk of pneumonia and tuberculosis. The entire inside of the boat sweats like a pitcher of ice water on a hot day. Before wc are on it three hours our clothes are soaked, and they stay that way. We have absolutely no heat, which means that the boat Is the temperature of tho outside air. Sometimes we nearly freeze. The doctors say that the men on a submarine never sleep; they merely become unconscious for brief intervals. The air, the odors from the machinery, the constant vibration and the intense strain under which you labor make sleep an impossibility. "In a storm, when we have to seal up, the air gets worse than anything you can imagine. There are eighteen men and two officers in one of our boats, and at any moment any one of the twenty may cause the death of all the rest There is no room for mistakes. "The space in which the men live is fifty feet long and about ten feet wide. I can stand upright If I pick my place, but most of the time my shoulders are bent There are no bunks; we all spread our mattresses on an iron deck. The dining room consists of four electric hot plates. Nothing in the nature of a spark is allowed below decks, but we can heat up coffee on the hot plates and occasionally fry things. We can't smoke, and the vibration of the engines makes it Impossible to read or even play cards, so when we are not working there's nothing for us to do but sit on the floor and look at each other."

Morden college, Blackheath, is the most luxuriously equipped almshouse in existence. Admission is strictly limited to merchants who have fallen on evil times. Mere clerks are not eligible, candidates being required to prove that they have been in a large way of business for themselves. Each member of the college draws a yearly allowance of 110 and on admission receives 25 worth of furniture for his two rooms, unless he prefers to bring his own. There are well trained men servants, and to every three members one maid servant is allotted. Members must attend a certain number of chapels and be in by 11 o'clock at night if they come in at all, but there is no other restriction on their liberty, and they can go away for weeks at a time if they choose. London Chronicle. Naming a City. From the Cleveland PJain Dealer we learn that the modern spelling of the name of the city is due to the error of a type manufacturer who sent to the Cleveland Herald, In 1S31, a new set of type which was too "fat" as printers say. In other words, too wide to allow the heading of the paper to be spelled In the old and correct way. As the correction of the mistake was a matter of about ten weeks, so slow were the transportation facilities of those days, the printer suggested that the first "a" be left out of the name. It was done, and thus the town received a new name. "Flowery" Names. Many of the Chinese names are of a "flowery" character.
