Crawford, pastor of the Pikeville Presbyterian Church, and his wife had a narrow escape from death while out driving last, Friday afternoon. The Orawfords were driving around the hill road just below Island Creek. When passing a narrow place in the road the buggy in which they were riding was overturned and its occupants were thrown out, and they rolled 30 Or 40 feet down the steep embankment The horse and conveyance also went over the hill. Their escape is a miracle, because if either horse or buggy had lolled over them the chances are both would have been killed. But through the intervention of a miracle Dr. Crawford and wife came through the accident almost without a scratch, the buggy, which was capsized, being upside down on a tree stump and the horse, which rolled to the lower side of a com field, was only slightly injured. This is said to be the same place where Charles York and wife met with a similar accident a few weeks ago Pike County News. Land For Sale. IN LANCASTER RECORD.

Mr Helm is charged with deserting by failure to support the "great Banking and Currency Act." On September 16, 1913, Mr. Helm delivered a speech In the House of Representatives, advocating this measure and urging its passage, stating among other things that it was an '"'nsurauce against panic." The speech was printed in the Congressional Record of that date, pages 50034, and was printed in, pamphlet form at his own expense, and mailed to twenty thousand people in this district, including those who are now attempting to deceive the people by misrepresentations of his record. What higher evidence of support could a member of Congress give a measure than to advocate its passage in an appeal to his colleagues in its favor? In the second place Mr. Helm is charged with "deserting the President" in the passage of the Immigration Bill, a measure, which the writer says was ' designed to exclude a great many illiterates and undesirable foreigners from making America a Breeding place and Asylum for crime", which bill the writer now discovers Mr. Helm voted for, but which the President vetoed. If the bill possesses all tlie virtues the writer ascribes to it, what crime was there in supporting it, the President to the last Wednesday evening, in honor of The social given at the home of her daughters, Allene Montgomery, Mary Miller, Corinne Breeding, Letitia Paull, Katie Murrell, Ella Todd, Nellie and Jessie Nayior, George Montgomery.

Give the farm a name and keep the farm up to the name. A name gives distinction, it is an expression of honest pride, it is an expression cf honest pride, it shows an interest in the place. It means something more than so many acres of brown earth, a dwelling and barns. It means a place that one feels is in the best sense the home of himself and his family. Sentiment gathers around it and crystalizes so that at last the owner does not so much ask in declining years, how much can I get for my farm? but "who is going to succeed me on it?" And that means a d strengthening of home ties and those of locality, both of which ara greatly needed in American rural life. But for practical reasons as well as sentimental it is wise to bestow a name upon the farm. No man would give a good name to his farm and then keep the ferm in poor condition. The sense of pride would prompt any man to do his level bestv That would mean better cultivation, house and barn painted, fences in good condition, better stock and better crops and more within attractive appearance and without the dwelling. There is scarcely a farm, however situated that some appropriate name may not be given it. Landscape, a spring, clump of trees, position, historic associations are among the many things that may suggests the name. And always remember this, that it is with the farmer more than anyone else, tests the solution of the problem of arresting the drift citywards. An attractive home, a home that has a distinctiveness about it, goes a long way toward the solution. deep-eningnself-respecti- ng Will Sloan's Liniment Relieve Pain?

We are authorized to announce that CHARLES F. MONTGOMERY, of Casey County, is a candidate to represent the Eighth District in the next Congress, subject to the Democratic primary to be held August 5. 1916. 9i -- u-t, We are authorized to announce HARVBY HELM, of Lincoln county, a Democratic candifor Congress from the date for Eighth district, subject to the August primary. V Evidence exists to warrant the belief that this government and Mexico will adjust their differences and secure peace in an honorable and upright manner, commendable to civilization. Passion has subsided, and reason seems to be enthroned with the Mexican government, so no one need" fear the results. The officials of our government have fought a good fight, kept the hing faith and won a great a precedent for future generations in just, honorable and honest negotiations between a strong and weak government. They have likewise steared clear of the European carnage, maintaining neutrality from Berlin to London and from Home to Petrograd, justly meriting for this government the confidence of the world. It required sound judgment, Christian fortitude and gilt edge courage. We are of all people, most fortunate in a world crisis, and in an era of carnage to have such a man as Woodrow Wilson at the head of our government, for a victory-establis- with other governments, but has scored the highest points in securing construction legislation, broadening and safeguarding the avenues of honest endeavor so all important for a thrifty condition and permanent prosperity and development throughout this country. Ideal business conditions in every section of this country, with no persection of large enterprises, and labor receiving its highest reward; with no wars without nor feuds within, a record of four years to back the party, unequalled in the annals of National legislation, point with an unerring certainty to peace and plenty to a safe four more years if Mr. Wilson is elected. Under existing conditions his election ought to be backed by every electoral vote. If after having tasted the sweets of unequalled prosperity, the blessings of peace honorabely sustained without friendly relations with any na tion, solving compound complications by the rule and measure of honorable and humane methods, if we should fail to breaking ent League at Washington, he favored the of President Wilson. Mr. Johnson not only believes the president should be but he has promised to lend his individual efforts to bring this about. He has been a member of the Organization Committee of the League. His statement giving his reasons for supporting the President follows: "I am in favor of the reelection of President Wilson because he has handled the difficult problems of Government splendidly. No man could have done better under existing conditions. He has served the nation at a time when service meant much to him and to the nation. He has been shamefully attacked by politicians for political effect. He has earned, and is justly entitled to the confidence and support of the American people. The present condition of the country the work in which he has been engaged, the incomplete, and at the present time, critical condition of the work, the experience with which he has had and the ability he has shown, all indicate that it is a matter of common sense and good judgment to see that he is retained to finish the work now in progress.' Plenty of rain down this way. Corn is looking fine. The wheat crop is about all threshed. Rodgers & Dowell are on the market for a big lot of wheat at the market price. Will Wilson, of Columbia, was in our midst last Friday. Mrs. Dolphus Rodgers, of Roachville, visited her relatives here a few days the first of the week. Mrs. Geo. H.

Thus sayeth conditions as they stand before the true lover of peace and prosperity. The prospects of Democratic victory this fall grows brighter as the days go by and will continue to brighten as the voters more and more realize the fine work of President Wilson in keeping eyery promise and averting the horrors of war with honor and dignity to the country.

On June 20, 1916, Mrs. Mary J. Long, wife of the late Samuel Long, peacefully closed her eyes in the stillness of death. She was 71 years old and had been sick about two weeks with diarrhoea and kidney trouble. The deceased was married to Samuel Long, April 5, 1866 To this union 8 children were born, 7 girls and one boy, all of whom being present to witness the last sad rites, except two daughters, one beinglin Texas and the other sick. Besides the children and grandchildren, she is survived by several brothers and sisters. Also one niece who had lived with the family from a small girl. Mrs. Long's husband preceded her to the grave about 7 years ago, Early in life the deceased professed faith in Christ and united with the M. E. Church The funeral was preached by Eld. H. B. Gwinn, pastor of the Christian church at Jamestown, in a most solemn beautiful and impressive manner, after which the remains were laid to rest in the family graveyard. On Monday, July 3, Mrs. Nancy McFar-lanwhs was 85 years old and a member of Mt. Vernon Baptist church, after a lingering illness closed her eyes in death. As "Aunt" Nancy had been confined to her bed for a long time, only death could relieve her of her suffering. She leaves two sons and several grandchildren, who live in the West. -- Her husband died a number of years ago while her daughter with whom she lived, only about two months ago. The funeral was preached at Mt. Vernon church, by Eld. H, B. Gwinn, after which the remains were laid to rest in the family burying ground. d, AGENT FOR I CHEVROLET7 I MOTOR OARS With Genuine Enthusiasm introduces to your kind consideration i TL "fc-- - the Chevrolet "Baby Grand", a Five Passenger Touring Car.
