The organization is d and acmade up of forty complished musicians uniformed in striking military array, and it boasts soloists of high repute in the world of music. Its leader, Lieut. Eben, is a picturesque figure, and is said to be one of the most brilliant directors in America. Their programs will be made up of selections appealing to all tastes. Of the acts proper the most pretentious to be offered in the pavilion oval will be the auto polo exhibition which is second to none as an amusement combining thrill, clamor, movement and surprises. This game was introduced to State Fair visitors for the first time last season and both in the pavilion and on the race track it Sold Everywhere It has been said that he who has no enemies has no friends, and this is especially true to an editor. If he takes no stand on a proposition he makes no enemies but he also makes no friends and his influence for right is a minus quantity. On the other hand if he supports projects of which he approves and helps to defeat actions which do not seem right to him, he makes enemies. But he also makes firm, lasting friends, and he has the satisfaction of knowing that he has done his best.

There are no restrictions as to methods of attack and head-o-n smashes, machine somersaults and "spills"'are frequent. Another act of "dare devil" type Is n to be presented by the Johannes Troupe of five Icelanders, formerly a big drawing card with the Their Barnum circus aggregation. line of entertainment Is a sensational illustration of the possibilities of physical development and understanding of defense in the event of attack. Pistols, bowie knives and blackjacks figure sensationally in their paraphernalia. "Human Aeroplanes" is the billing of the FoHir Boises, who are English aerial artists offering amazing mid-ai- r gymnastics. The act includes three men and a pretty woman said to be as skilled as her companions. Astounding feats of dexterity are promised in the offering of the Portia Sisters who are French girls performing amazing feats of dexterity in midair while revolving suspended by teeth or hair. As climax to a thrilling program two of the Portias slide from either end of the pavilion roof suspended by their hair. A turn attractive to the eye and titillating to the senses is assured in the wheel and wire offering of the MacDonald Trio, as well as the quartet of comedians known as the Baggage Smashers. In "Circus Horsemanship" Fair visitors will be regaled with a spectacle wonderful in the way of and training and of decorative beauty. Elephants figure in another animal of amusing and marvellous act tenor and posing steeds and four people provide a "living statuary" series of patriotic and beautiful character. The list of Hippodrome features winds up with the stirring, sensational and unusual entertainment of the Seven McKays, as a Scotch troupe of canny Highlanders are described.

For the third time in State Fair history a $10,000 premium has been announced in connection with the five gaited Saddle Horse Stake which is outstanding feature of the horse department of the Kentucky State Fair. For seven successive fairs the premiums in this ring had ranged from $T00 to $3,000 with only one night's exhibition of the high steppers. In 1917, Commissioner of Agriculture Mat S. Cohen made a whirlwind campaign for funds and by his own personal, brilliant, daring work, secured in donations the splendid sum of $8,835.00, leaping the total premiums for this event to $10,000. The announcement electrified the show horse world and did Just what the commissioner calculated and desired, Imbued the breeders and exhibitors of fine horses with new and keen interest in the ring. It also put the Kentucky State Fair on a horse show basis rivaling Madison Square with an entire week of horse events instead of the one exhibition, the saddle horse contests being divided into classes for the stallions on Monday night, the mares on Tuesday night and the geldings on Wednesday with the winners of the first three prizes in each of these classes pitted against each other in a grand struggle for the championship (honors of the world on Saturday night. just staggered around. . .

GOODMAN, The Elizabethtown News was fifty, years old last Tuesday. It is edited by Mr. H. A. Summers, who is one of the most careful writers in the State, and his opinions have much weight over Kentucky. It is a tried and true exponent of Democratic principles and upon all other issues looking to the betterment of man and the building up of the waste places of this Commonwealth. Here is hoping that; Editor Summers may live many years longer, and .will weekly send his paper to an anxious reading public. Gov. Black Europe and South America can find themselves. The New York World correctly diagnoses the present economic situation when it says editorially: "There can be no approach to normal conditions in this country until the treaty of peace is out of the way and the work of liquidating the war has become the chief concern of Government as well as of the victims of the existing situation. Business of all kinds is largely speculative because of indefiniteness and uncertainty, and gambling has to be paid for by somebody. In this case it is paid for by the consumer, who must take care of both gains and losses." Let the Senate ratify the treaty and approve the covenant of the League of Nations. That act alone will stabilize the world. It wilt turn the people's thoughts from war. It will restore the psychology of peace. -- -- ii.n .iwi.t.ibi i.' - --J t Vs- THE UI'irERCAL CAR Ford cars are important servants everywhere.

We well remember in old days of Campbellsville when the blood and liquor were on a par, that it was not safe for ladies to be on the streets. Since the town has been without saloons that condition has changed and this last change should put the minds of honest thinking people in the right state against whiskey. If we are to be bothered with another town's misdoings by having saloons we can do nothing but put up with it, but as there is now a chance for us to do away with that menace, let's do it. Once and for all, may we rise up against this curse which is sapping our young manhood in Taylor county and bringing the older to younger deaths .and bleeding their pockets for the craze for whiskey.

These chapters are at Dayton, Springfield and Marietta in Ohio; Fowler and Hammond In Indiana, and La Grange, Kentucky. Recreation facilities for the county, child welfare and relief work, and aid and counsel to be given to all families as It has been given to families of soldiers and sailors are some of the lines of future work chosen. In authorizing the extension of Home Service activities the Red Cross is taking great care that its work will not overlap that of any already existing agency. So little has been done for community betterment in. many rural districts that there are many practically untouched fields. The mission of the Red Cross is to supplement rather than to supplant other agencies at work. WAR-TIM- families. The findings of the survey committee in each community will determine the particular field into which the Home Service will extend its activities.

In consequence, it is expected that the greatest exhibit of fine cattle in the history of the Fair will be entered for competition In this department. It was the purpose of the State Fair management, in assigning this gigantic sum to the cattle division of the Fair to stimulate the rapidly waning Industry of cattle raising and breeding and the interest already exhibited proves the potency of the move. Three of the leading brokers of America have entered many carloads of the choicest steers and she stuff in the fatted and feeding cattle class and the whole allotment will be sold at public auction to be held on the State Fair grounds, beginning Thursday of Fair week. Jack Lawler, Sher-re- ll and Lett and William Daniels and Brother of Chicago, are the consignors of three cars of steers and two of heifers for the first, three cars of steers and two of heifers for the second, and four cars of steers and one of heifers for the last named. These entries have every one been selected by competent judges from the many thousands of cattle passing 8-1- 3, through the Union Stock Yards in the past ninety days and will offer a. splendid opportunity for feeders and dealers. Although a lesser sum was assigned to the beef department last year a most encouraging exhibition was the response to the Fair's substantial premium awards and, arguing from this fact it is expected that the competition and auction in the cattle department will eclipse any former event in Fair history. A "great showing of Hereford marked the 1918 exhibit, but a better one is looked for this season. With ?.,000 offered in the Shorthorn Division it Is expected that thia competition, which is open to the world, will bring forth an unusual showing. The Blackfaced Aberdeen Angus have also developed popularity and are regarded as strong "comers." A Kentucky Futurity with $3,000 In awards, is announced for breeders and owners of the above named varieties of cattle. $1,000 Is set aside for the Herefords, Shorthorns and Aberdeen Angus breeds. The futurity is limited to Kentucky cattle only and is for animals under two years of age. There will be six classes for each breed.

Governor Harris says that during his incumbency, while Gov. Black is absent from the state, the pardon books will be closed and it will be a waste of time for any one to try to obtain a pardon. Sensible man. If pardons are to be granted it should be the elected governor's prerogative and not that of a temporary executive officer. Heretofore such men have spent their time granting pardons, often to those who have been denied by the governor, and made a farce of the office. Senator Harris will deserve the thanks of the law loving for setting aside a long observed custom. PEACE-TIM- E PROBLEMS LEAST one war organization has found that demands upon it have Increased since the signing of the armistice. The last monthly report received at the Lake Division headquarters of the American Red Cross at Cleveland shows that 40,709 families in Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky have been given aid and counsel during the month. Financial aid has amounted to $68,746 in that time an increase of over $3,603 over the previous month. At present there are 30,000 men and women in the United States giving full or part time to Home Service work. There are 357 organized bands of workers in the three states 108 in Ohio, 106 in Indiana and 144 in Kentucky. AT BUREAU IS CREATED OF FIRE and LIFE TO MEET NEEDS RURAL COMMUNITIES BRING about the development of the American rural community is the purpose of the Bureau of Rural Organization, a newly created department of the Civilian Relief Department of the American Red Cross. Prof. E. L. Morgan of the Massachusetts College of Agriculture has been appointed director. Already there are 3,700 Red Cross Home Service sections operating in s of. the United States, them in plaqes of less than 8,000 population. The needs of the rural districts have been found to be so many and the organized attempts to remedy so very few that it will be a part of the Bureau's work to put the community in touch with the organization that can best meet Its needs, whether it be the Red Cross or another agency.
