Instantly the bolt shot through him and he fell to the ground. The scene created great excitement and a doctor was called. After working with him for more than an hour he was able to be conveyed home, in an automobile.

C, is calling upon the Commissioners of Agriculture and other agricultural forces throughout the- United States, earnestly pleading with them to use their influence toward increasing the acreage of wheat sown this Fall; and .since it is most imperative that Kentucky should increase her 1917 acreage sown, 1 beg of each land owner in this Commonwealth to see that his Fall sowing is increased fully 25 per cent, in acreage. Not only is this appeal made to the farmer in the nature of a "war appeal" and a patriotic effort, but it is a duty each farmer owes to his own household to produce an adequate supply of the necessity of life for the sustenance of that family, and under the existing war condition, his obligations toward helping feed our Allies should be just as paramout and just as eagerly performed as is the debt and duty he owes to his own family. Kentucky for the past few years has been producing annually around eight million bushels of wheat, and it is estimated that ten million bushels of wheat are consumed each year by the people of this Commonwealth. Therefore, in order to do our "mite" during this serious crises, I beg of the people to decrease' the supply of wheat usually consumed at least two million bushels, and to the farmers of this State to do their utmost in producing twelve million bushels in 1918, which will give our magnificent amount of four million bushels, and which is nothing more than we should do for those brave fighting warriors who are the battle for the world's freedom. Do not let the high price of seed wheat influence or prevent you from sowing an increased acreage, nor doubt not for a minute but that the growing of wheat tvill be a profitable as well as a patriotic effort, even if the war were to close I cannot believe that the farmers of this State fully realize the seriousness of the situation, and I therefore call upon them and assure them that every pulsation of the heart true American citizen is throbbing, and most crying aloud for a greater increased production of this stanle product. Mr. Farmer, wont you please do your part? Mat S.

And during the month of February and March 1917, 1 did make said settlement with the said Sheriff as follows: I first charged said sheriff with 3,700 polls listed by the assessor for taxation for the year 1916 at $1.25 each. I then charged him with 45 polls listed by the County Clerk for taxation for said year, 1916, at $1.25 each . I then charged said Sheriff with an ad valorem tax of 30c on each $100. worth of 82,770,139 property listed by the assessor, supervised, equalized and certified, for taxes for the General Fund, and 20c on each $100 worth thereof for the Road Fund. I then charged said Sheriff with an ad valorem of 30c on each 3100, worth of $51,347 property listed by the County Court Clerk, for General Fund, and 20c on each $100 thereof, for Road Fund. I then charged him with the Franchise tax on the varipus corporations doing business and listed in Adair county.

But, in some parts of the Union, where the sentiments of their delegates and leaders are to the government, and great pains are taken to inculcate a belief, that their rights are assailed and their liberties endangered, it is not easy to accomplish this; especially, as is the case invariably, when the inventors and abettors of pernicious measures use infinitely more industry, in disseminating poison than the well disposed part of the community, in furnishing the antidote. To this source all our discontents may be traced; and from it all our embarrassments proceed.

What French Women are Wearing. ning toilettes." There is a cable report on the fashions in Paris in the September Woman's Home Companion. The writer of it says: When officers and soldiers first appeared on Paris streets, smart features in the uniforms 'appealed to feminine fancy and immediately there were launched street costumes modeled nearly ezactly on war uniforms. Naturally what at first seemed smart became cheapened, and the lad, frowned upon by that inexorable law of Parisiennes, good taste, had a short run to an absolute finish. From the beginning, the Parisienne of war time refused all conspicuousness of gowning, and what thought she gave to the subject was concentrated on an endeavor to unite elegance to simplicity. The 'little dress that has ruled so long in Paris came into being from the recognized need of busy women who under the strenuous new conditions, demanded a dress that x could be quickly put on and easily adjusted. Achieved immediately, it conquered the world and is still the prevailing fashion in Paris. "The first model was a straight sack chemise, loosely belted and closed in front. The sleeves were cut in one and. the neck was collarless. From this developed .many variations that afternoon and eve- South for encampment, as has been proven a number of times, with more serious results than ever last week at Houston, Texas. AJnegro regiment mutined and ran amuck shooting and killing police officers, men and women, because a policeman had arrested one of their number. Nearly a score were killed and as many more wounded. Several white officers of the army were killed and the brutes not content-wit- h their bloody work bayonetted and otherwise mutilated the dead bodies. The ring leaders and 34 others are under arrest and will be tried by court martial when many of them will doubtless feel the halter draw, as mutiny alone is punishable by death during war times, to say nothing of the horrible murders. The regiment has been removed from Texas to Arizona, which only furnishes new fields for their deviltry. Southern negro soldiers may know how to behave themselves in the south, but the yankee negro, with an exalted idea of his importance, should not be permitted south of Mason and Dixon's line. The- statement is made that it costs the government $156 to equip a soldier for duty in France and there are a million of men now under arms to go there. War is hellish and costly from every point of view. Hoover, the food dictator, - is arranging to require one meatless day a week, but he is behind time. Since hogs are selling at $20 a hundred nearly every day is meatless day with most of us. Stanford Journal. - and Rural Engineering, Washington, D. C. writes as follows concerning county engineers. "Each county should have a competent road engineer, if its population, taxable valuation and road mileage is sufficient to justify the employment of such an engineer. Where a county is not able to employ "an engineer by itself, provision might be made whereby two or more .counties together could employ the services of a competent engineer, each paying a just portion of his salary. This need for skilled engineering on the part of the counties may be met to quite a large extent through the State Highway Department in the way of advice and engineering assistance. However, it would be impossible for the State Highway Department to completely meet this requirement for all of the counties. There should be a uniform system of accounting by which all road expenditures should be kept. This system o'f accounting should be prescribed and enforced by the State Highway Department in with the proper state official or officials charged with the duty of supervising accounts relating to public expenditures Where expenditures of any magnitude are to be unnertaken in any county, in either highway or bridge work, the project, with plans, specifications and estimates should first be submitted to the State Highway Engineer for his review and approval or recommendations, Where county bonds are to be voted for Highway or bridge purposes, the proposition should be submitted to to the State Highway Engineer be fore the election is called and the State Highway Engineer should make such investigation as he might deem advisable and submit report thereon, so that the people would have the benefit of his view of the matter before casting their ballot."
