The Kentucky kind suited him all right, but the invention of submarines, airships and guns of enormous size "has him faded" so to speak. In the course of a speech at the State Democratic Convention last week the Colonel spoke about as follows: "War!

War ain't like it used to be, nohow. It used to be that 12 to 15 of us fellows could get a shot gun apiece and go out and run a whole regiment of the Republicans into the Ohio River. But war is different from what it was then." They tell me that they've got a cannon now and all you've got to do is to turn a crank like, you do a chromo, and it shoots 600 times a minute!

A planter down in Kentucky had just employed a strange negro as a mule driver. He handed him a brand new blacksnake whip, climbed up on a seat behind a pair of mules and asked the darkey if he could use the whip. Without a word the mule driver drew the black lash between his fingers, swung it over his head and flicked a butterfly from a clover blossom alongside the road over which they were traveling. Animals can Swim. The author of a book on animals once said "Sheep cannot swim." The statement was accepted because no contradictory evidence could be found, and there seemed to be a prevailing belief in its accuracy. But now Mr. H. C. Hammond, Newton, Kansas, writes: "Please take this back. Some years ago a large flock of sheep owned by a Mr. Berryman did swim the north fork of White river in Arkansas. The sheep were being taken from Arkansas to Howell county, Missouri. The river at that point was over a hundred yards wide, and, the current years experience. Charges reasonable.

To put it beyond the reach of emotional desire to spend and protect it from accident and from the designs of thieves who break in and steal, the thing to do is to deposit it in bank. 4. C ''That isn't bad" remarKed the planter. "Can you hit that honey bee over there?" Again the negro swung the whip and the honeybee fell dead. Noting a pair of bumble bees on still another blossom, the negro swished them out of existence with the cracker of his new black snake, and drew further admira tion from his new employer. A little, further along the planter spied a hornet's nest in a bush beside the highway. Two or three hornets were assembled at the entrance to the nest. "Can you hit them, Sam?" he inquired. "Ye3, sah; I kin," replied the negro; "but I ain't a goin'. to; dey's organized." Exchange. L. H. Jones Eye Specialist - 1-1- 5, Do You Know Rural sanitation protection to the That swift." This seems to settle an interesting point in natural history. That is, it shows that sheep can swim, though it does not make quite clear whether they do so voluntarilf, or just how much persuasion was necessary to induce them to enter the water. Even cats and fowls float, so that, when forced into the water in any way, they make some kind 'of desperate struggle to reach the land. is a health a boy city-dwelle- r? noon. h & Special attention given Diseases of all Domestic Animals Office at Residence, 1 mile of town, on Jamestown road.
