He had some trouble with a negro man named White, the latter leaving Taylor and entering A. Hovious' store. Taylor was drinking and as soon as the darky entered the store, he followed and renewed the trouble by cursing the negro, making threats, etc. Mr. Hovious, who conducts the store, asked him not to make trouble in his house. This infuriated Taylor and he picked up a weight, as though he was going to throw it, but instead he laid it down. He then stepped up to Hovious and struck him in the mouth with his fist. Hovious remarked, "Charley you should not have struck me," walking behind his counter as soon as he had made tbe remark.

The Kentucky farmer has many things for which he may be duly thankful as the Old Year dies. Bountiful crops and soaring farm land values make his life very much worth while. His automobile skimming over the many new hard roads built in 1915 make rural life easier and more pleasant than in the past. Phonographs and telephones in increasing numbers make the rural home a happier and a better place in which to live and to rear a family. All of these good things are making the farmer, his wife and his children ah! Has the farmer forgotten his children? The holidays will soon be over; then these children must go Hope, happiness, courage, 'success these are yours when your Liver is active and strong.

If a small percentage of the bountiful crops, the snug bank accounts and the soaring land values, were carefully invested in real schools for real children, then the farmer might feel safe for the future.
