He finds that the country i on the eve of war; that, war once declared, no strike will be admissible, and that the train men's one hope of coercing employers and public, rests upon arbitrary action now. Something has been said of late as to the gross impropriety of an assault by organized labor upon the Supreme Court, which has its case under consideration and whose judgment it is attempting either to intimidate or to anticipate. This view of the brotherhoods' activities presents many sinister features, but infinitely worse In every aspect is their avowed purpose to seize upon a grave national emergency as a prime opportunity to press by violence of threats of violence, claims as to wages and hours which are still in process of adjudication. In all its long career, subject as lb has been to many blundering leaderships, organized labor never before appeared in a character sordid as this What do its protestations of loyalty in the presence of war amount to if it uses the imminence of war as an excuse to throttle government and peo" ple?

He is now finishing his second term as County Jailor, and there is no more widely known or popular citizen in all Frankfort or Franklin County. During the war, he was Morgan's right-han- d man, and his friends love to call him "Morgan's Old Horso Thief" as he "was always given command of foraging parties when they had got past the Union lines and were in Northern territory.

But he feels fine again now and says ho believes he can straddle his horse from the ground and make as hard a ride as he could in the days of '61.

Remember, we do not buy toms ud- der 131 pounds; hens. 84 pounds; and they must be strictly fat. Poor, scrawny, turkeys are not wanted at any price. They are absolutely worth less.

Stock turkeys should have been se lected early in December. If you neglected yours, do not lose another day.

Remember, the earlier the birds are 3t hatched the better. Don't set to hatch later than June 10. Don't feed for 24 or 30 hours after hatching, then give dry feed" (the yolk of tard boiled eggs is the best of all feed) Keep the young birds in a warm, dry place until they are several days old. Corn dough is a dangerous feed as it sours and causes intestinal disease. Cooked feed is the best. Never give the young turkeys corn, it's too hard to digest. See that they have a good range. Insects are the finest feed of all for half grown birds. When fall arrives with its cool nights begin at once to increase amount of feed by giving a warm mash composed of shorts or bran and meal mixed," in the morning, and corn at night as i&. furnishes a great deal of heat, keeping the birds warm and increasing tbeir fat. Corn feed in the morning is bad as it causes sluggishness and 'they will not take the exercise necessary to keep them healthy. Never give them pepper as it irritates the intestines When rounding them for market give all the corn they wllf eat, and don't; sell until they are thoroughly Mr. J. N. Coffey, of this town, needed to do some surveying in the Grady-vill- e section last week, started for the aforesaid place Wednesday, but reaching the Willmore lane, about midway between Bliss and Grady ville, lie found it impassable for ajjuggy; and returned home the same day. Mr. Coffey informs us that the mail man had not used this piece of road for a month, going through fields and circuitous routes to keep up the service between Grady ville and Columbia Gentlemen of Adair county, what can we look forward to if such conditions must be encountered every winter? We certainly cannot expect farm improvement or agricultural development. We can not hope for improvements if we are unwilling to pay for same. Every year the toll of bad roads is Immense. Every year we send West and North a large number of our most progressive young men, simply because there is neither enterprise nor hope of reward in this part of the State The Gradyville road, bad as it is, is no worse than many other roads on an average They are all bad; bad every winter and spring, and will continue to be bad until the people awake to the worth of good roads, and become willing to meet the expense of building them. We have a splendid section of country capable of producing twenty times or more its present ag ricultural production if properly developed Our citizenship is par excellent in point of intelligence and morality, but in progress and enterprise we drop below the desirable point a condition so costly that no one can correctly estimate our annual losses. In fact we lose in money, in good, progressive young men, and in comforts and conveniences every year far more than our roads would cost to build. Fortunately the county court is making some effort to build some road, which ought to be an object lesson and show the worth of such improvement?, but the work has been slow and under an imperfect system, which opens the avenues of criticism as well as endorsement for the good being accomplished.' To our mind if the county is to continue in road building, or improvement of roads, a County Road Engineer is absolutely indispenslblo Many miles of substantial rock road could, and would be built each year by free'werk if we had a competent road engineer backed up -- The Only Hotel in Louisville Operated on the American and European Plan AMERICAN PLAN.
