Used 40 Years government, and are not giving it. Secretary McAdoo has definitely announced that the Fourth Liberty Loan will bear Interest at the rate of 4 per cent Men who deal In financial matters know "that this is a good rate of interest when the value and strength of the security are taken Into consideration. Wise lenders always look to the strength of the security first, and then to the amount of returns the investment will pay. Back of every government bond stands the whole resources of the nation. All the coal in the ground hacks your $100 or your $500 bond. All the wheat that will grow on the fields of America for a generation Is back of the paper the government gives you with "Fourth Liberty Loan" across Its face. The very soil on which that wheat grows is security for the bond. The whole property of the United States and its people so long as the government endures Is pledged to the buyer that the bond and its interest will be paid exactly as stipulated. The United States has never repudiated a dollar of its debts. It started right when it became a nation. After the Revolution there were a good many Americans who thought that the debts of that war should be denied and forgotten, so that the new nation might have a start free from debt. But the wiser men who framed the government saw Into the future. They knew that "honesty is the best policy" for governments as well as men. So they assumed the load of Revolutionary debt and. paid it off. People may give money to certain war work and war funds, but they are not giving one single dollar so far as the Liberty. Loan is concerned. They are loaning money to their government, which is themselves, and they are supporting it, with their dollars just as they do with their ballots and their bayonets. And unless that government Is supported by their dollars it will perish from the earth, in spite of all that can be done with ballots and bayonets. Modern war requires money in greater sums than were ever known before in the earth's history. When the United States declared war against Spain Congress voted a credit of $50,000,000 to back that war declaration. That sum will not pay the present war expenses for more than a day. Bt every dollar that is spent In beating the Kaiser makes the security that Is back of every Liberty Loan just that much greater. The necessity of backing up the government Is teaching every American to save money. He sees better what money can buy now he understands Its value better, since he understands that his money is behind the rifles that are driving back the Hun on the west front. He thinks more of a dollar when he realizes that it is dollars that keep the big battleships on the seas and that it is these same battleships that keep the Hun from crossing the sea and carrying the war into America. No man who buys a Liberty Bond with his savings will feel like a Liberty Bonds are exempt from taxation. Taxes cannot touch It so long as it is loaned to the United States government. There is no one in the country too poor to buy a Liberty Bond. Thousands of people In cities and country are buying on the installment plan, paying so much a month or so much at Btated Intervals. In the cities a tremendous amount of every loan is taken by people who are paid weekly tax-dodge- their own TUB NIKE EMI 1 SOME "OVEBTHERE;"WE B T 1 UY BUT HETDHI STVIIORKHERE The Folks at Home Will Remember Them When Fourth Liberty Loan Campaigns Opens Sept. 23. Have you noticed that the old town isn't altogether what it used to be? That somehow there is a difference when you go down the street? That the old places are more subdued and quiet; less busy and noisy? That go where you will, the club, tho bowling ally, the billiard parlor, anywhere, there is the same subtle sense of change! The old voices no longer hall you with such eager challenge, such royal welcome, such whole souled the old smiles no longer greet you so warmly and the old hand claps on the shoulder no longer bring you the same old sense of comradeship and friendly Interest. Something seems to have slipped silently out of life. For scores of the old faces are missing: faces that you knew and loved the best. They are "over there" In the khakl-cla- d ranks that are slowly pushing the gray Hun line backward toward the Rhine. They are taking up the burden of civilization, of democracy and freedom; the liberation of a half world threatened with enslavement; the perpetuation of our own national liberty and safety. The overthrow of Kalserdom. And some of them are never to come back! None of us will ever forget these missing faces; the faces of our friends, our brothers, and sweethearts, our husbands and fathers. All of us will hope to welcome them home again, triumphant from the firing line, the jaws of death, the literal mouth of the inferno. Nor must any of us forget them n the coming Fourth Liberty Loan good-fellowshi- p; OUR BOYS ARE PRESERVING AMERICA'S TRADITIONS ON FOREIGN BATTLEFELDS AND IN TRENCHES. THEY DESERVE OUR SUPPORT Back Them Up With our Dollars When The Fourth Liberty Loan Campaign Opens Septem- ber 28. Every day the newspapers tell of some one or another of the Yanks having been awarded the cross of war for conspicuous bravery in action. Every day these same dispatches carry the story of some intrepid charge against the enemy trenches, the storming of some machine gun nest, the taking of another town of two in desperate hand to hand fighting. And our hearts swell with pride that it is so. Equally appreciative of their prowess are the allied leaders. "You have Bhown yourselves to be worthy sons of your great country and have gained the admiration of your brothers In arms," declared General Man-gi- n y in an official orthe other r. der thanking" the Yanks for their part in the last great thrust against the Huns. General Mangin voiced the sentiments of the entire membership of the allied general staff. For the Yanks have made good with a vengeance. We are wholly justified In being proud of them. We can look the whole world in the eye, knowing they rank with the finest. We can justly feel again that the traditions of American arms have been upheld; that in the eyes of the world America no longer stands accused of pacifism at the cost of honor; of meek submission to the ruthless arrogance of any people drunk with power. Once more we may hold up our heads, square our shoulders, take a reef In our trousers and intimate to the world at large that it's a dangerous pastime to tread upon the tail of our coat. ranks.

It will be regarded by them as a measure of the American people'3 support of the war. The Germans know full well the tremendous weight and significance of popular support of the war, of the people at home backing up the Army in the field.

Kentucky was Virginia when the mother State ' of the nation gave to her Washington, Jefferson, and Madison. No State has given to the nation more illustrious men than Kentucky. It is also remarkable that so many of Kentucky's most noted statesmen have come from the plain ranks of her sterling proletariate, and risen like William Ewart Gladstone, the' premier statesrace, man of he Anglo-Saxo- n from the plow share to the mar-hi- e chair. Ollie M. Barnes, of the quiet and sequestered little village of Marion, was yesterday easily the most illustrious Kentuckian living. Todayihis place is with Kentucky 'si most illustrious and jhonored dead. There is a something of simplicity, characteristic of real greatness, that we cannot describe nor define, but we know it when we see it in ihuman character, and feel it palpably when we come in contact with the reallyfgreat. Pagas of encomiums injnewspapers and books may be written of the great Kentuckian whose memory we honor in mourning sadbut these can never ness make the impression as did a personal and intimate association with the great and genial man in his lifetime. James as a man and a statesman embodied all of those human elements of simplicity that stamp the truly great The humblest laborer with the honor of his wonted toil was glad and free to shake the hand of Ollie James. He knew inlhim he had a friend who by living experience could not know how to pity, but whose second nature was brotherly love and sympathy. -- to-da- y, be-grim- ed James was never a politician, for politicians never attain thru personal traits of greatness and native genius the eminence in the hearts of a state and nation attained by him. tie was just a big man in every sense of the vrord, bigger than all the politic' ians in Kentucky combined. James was never identified with politics, and machine politicians never dared to oppose him, for they knew that to oppose James was to oppose the people who had in him a confidence.

It is unthinkable that a Democratic State should be represented in the Senate by a Republican; and it is not to be imagined that the Administration is to be given anything less than the finest support of which Kentucky's man power is capable. But the man the Democrat who is sent to the United States Senate from Kentucky must bear, as didJSenator James, the seal of the people's approval beyond all question of doubt. Therefore, in order to muster the entire Democratic strength of the State, the nomination of a candidate to succeed Senator James onlthe Democratic ticket, should befnamed by Democratic convention or a new primary whichever the State Central The Committee shall decide. statutes providejina case such as exists, that the State Central committee shall provide a means by which a new candidate is to be selected. The committee,may indeed, name a candidate, but The Times believes this method, if adopted, would take away strength from the candidate so named at least such a method would not muster the full Democratic strength of the Commonwealth. The State Central Committee, all prospective candidates for the nomination; in fact every loyal element in the State should consider at this hour what is best for the Commonwealth and the Nation. Considerations of merely political meaning should by all means be cast aside, to the end that Kentucky's patriotism may in nowise be placed under shadow. Beside, a quick decision will be of the greatest moment in the State's hour of need.

The size most in demand for the standard army shoe in the past was 7B, and that of tho while the average size of the marching shoe today is field or trench sh-j- a 9E. Twa styles are issued, for it has been found by experiment that soldiers require a larger shoe for the trenches, it being necessary to wear two pairs tof socks at a time in cold wet weather. Similarly, the present-da- y American soldier has to be provided with a size larger than his predecessor in coats, shirts and breeches. He is. a bigger man all around, which is decidedly satisfactory from the national point of view. Events in other belligerent lands since the war began have served to prove that men generally are as strong physically and morally as ever they were in history. The long campaign in the trenches in Europe has put the soldiers to a greater test than the fighting men of the past were submitted td In the worst of the numerous old wars. They have stood that test, and the hundreds of thousands who survive the cannon's blast and the rifle's bullet will emerge physically fine specimens of manhood. It is not necessary to look to the United States or over to Europe to see that the human race has not deteriorated. Canada is a small nation compared with its tremendous neighbor and with other allies. It had a population at the census of 1911 of 7,200,000, about half of ijwhom are males. Out of men part of this total 500,000 men have measured up to the severe medical test of the army, and some tens of thousands of others have been examined and rejected for minor defects that do not interfere with their life ns civilians, and do not threaten to shorten their days appreciably. The men who were taken to the field of war have lived in the open, through the heat of summer and the cold and snow and wet of winter, and the thunder of. guns has been constantly in their ears. The stress of the deadliest warfare has not broken their spirit, and they stand ready today to face attack from a powerful enemy and to deliver it in return. In view of these facts, the little bodies of gloomy and narrow-minde- d persons who meet periodically and resolve that the race is degenerating physically and morally should rest from their croaking for the time being. Actual conditions are confounding their slanderous assertions. The race is stronger today than ever. . M D NO THAR THE SALVATION OF THE WORLD GEN.

Whichever side finds it first will win the war, declares a Washington writer. The "Gas shell" is not necessarily a shelL It may contain a liquid or even a solid, and it opens up the whole sphere of organic chemistry to be drawn upon for materials. In every German drive this year there has been a gas strategy. Full dress rehearsals in gas maneuvers to meet every possible situation were held by the Germans before an attack. In the March drive captured maps show the Germans had worked out a zoning system over allied territory. Some zones were drenched with gas and others .left untouched. The German attacking troops were supplied with maps to Indicate the safety zones through which they might pass without harm. Some zones were subjected to ephemeral gases which evaporated before the arrival of the oncoming Germans. Other areas were bombarded with several hundred thousand shells, the gas from which lingered for hours. On one seven-mil- e sector the Germans discharged 125,000 shells in one day. The "front" Is not the solid line it looks to be on the maps. It is a series posts, often hills.

Steel league and to play with shipbuilding concerns. He says the move displays a' lack of patriotism and is not helping the sport, inasmuch as the people who support the game do not think highly of these men. "Ball players who are In the draft and jump their clubs to go to work in the steel and shipbuilding leagues are not doing baseball a bit of good," said Maranvllle. "They also are not helping Uncle Sam. They are not skilled enough to be of much use in those concerns and their chief object is to play ball. Fans will remember the players who left their clubs, and after the war is over those who come back un doubtedly will be tormented all around the circuit for their act" France already has put practically every available man in the ranks. England has drawn upon her man power to a point that is beginning to make itself felt in the production of war munitions. Belgium has all of her little remnant of population lined up along the front almost to a man. And Italy has all she can do to care for herself. Thi3 five million will represent the flower of America's fighting material. Upon it will depend to no small degree the ultimate, issue of the war. To it all Europe will be looking in eager expectation from the moment it takes the field aggressively. It is expected to be the straw that will break the Prussian camel's back. We must do our full duty by that five million in the next loan. And in doing this we must not overlook this fact In Its ranks will be thousands and thousands of boys who are now at home. Some of these will be from our own firesides. They will be our boys in literal truth. No longer will that army be an impersonal unit It will be made up largely of our own flesh and bood. Every time you buy a bond you will be lending to your own. For few households will escape the combing process of the next draft Don't forget this. The Fourth Liberty Loan campaign opens Sept 28. Your country and your sons need your help. s If you have a son eligible for service, look him over before you decide upon the amount of your purchase.

It is not generally known, but is a fact that between the years 1840 and 1850, salt was made in the county for home consumption, and for shipment to other counties. Wells were drilled on Green river and Casey Creek, and perhaps at other places. About three miles below Neatsvilie, on Green river, a very rich stream of salt water was struck from which thousands of bushels of salt were made, people coming from other counties for it. The well furnished from one hundred to one hundred and fifty bushels of salt per week, and it was sold at one dollar per bushel. The pumping was done by horse power. Hon. W. F. Neat, now an octonegerian, informs me that when he was a lad, he remembers driving the on one ochorse till casion in pumping, for which he received a peck of salt. It is sometimes said of a fellow after he is grown up, that v "he is not worth his salt," but this cannot be said of our life long old friend. He was earning his before he reached his teens. In the building of houses in the early days of the county, the wooden pin played an important part. Nails were used sparingly and were of home manufacture. Some of these old pioneer nails came to light three or four years ago, when an old house was torn down to make room for a new one. it- mid-night en socks and stockings we will see. In the bottom near the bridge on the north side of Russell's Creek, was where the old race track used to run. At an earlier day its course could be traced around the bend in the stream, but time has removed the marks of this sporting place. It was here the speed of the horses was tried, and the small change of the sportsman changed hands. Doubtless, there were lively times around this old track-do- g fights, chicken fights, and lastly men fights, for one kind of fighting led to the other.

It was indulged in especially at the races on court days, and at elections. The old time three days' elections afforded fine opportunities for the display of pugilistic skill, and a county court day seldom passed more fistcuffs.
