The case is as follows: Virgil A.Harden,ayoung man twenty years old, procured a policy of three thousand dollars on his life and named as beneficiary his wife, Liliie Harden. At the time he took out the policy he had not been married, but was engaged to be married to Miss Lillie Wheeler. One month after the policy had been issued he was married to his affiance, and on the day after he was married to said Lillie, Harden, he was taken sick and died eight days thereafter. His mother Onie Harden claimed that on the day before he died he called his wife .and in the presence of his mother, stated that he wanted her (his mother) toliave one-ha- lf of the insurance money. The circuit court held the statement made by the mother was sufficient to change the beneficiary. Whereupon,' the case went to the Court of Appeals and that court decided in favor of the wife, that she was entittled to the whole of the insurance. Gordon Montgomery represented the wife and Jones & Garnett the mother. vs Bishop One of Denny. .

He Is speaking over his territory, telling the people the danger that is now confronting the'world on account of infidels and atheist who are employed in many of the large colleges as instructors. He made many statements, based on facts, that were alarming, and there is not a doubt but he was correct in his assertions. He urged the Christian people to become aroused, as to this great danger that is confronting the nation ns to Christianity. His Church is active and unchristian teachers will not be employed nor tolerated by Southern Methodism.

Another brother has finished the designs written on life's trestle board and gone to be with our supreme grand Master in the eternal lodge on high. Our lodge was shocked on March 3. 1921, when the sad news spread over its jurisdiction that our beloved brother, D. G. Harmon, had been called to meet the righteous judge on high and answer too his stewardship while traveling through this vale of sorrow on earth. He was about 56 years of age and had been a member of Hood Lodge No. 839 F. and A. M., about 11 years and. because of the nobility, true brotherly love of this brother and our high esteem for his memory, be it hereby, Resolved. That Hood Lodge No. 839 F. and A. M., express its grief over the Ios3 of this brother by having this resolution spread upon the pages of the lodge records and be it, Resolved That the lodge express Its sympathy with the family and lov ed ones of our departed brother by sending to them a copy of these reso lutions and be it further resolved That we call upon all worthy breth ren of the craft to emulate his life and character by sending to each of our county papers a copy of these resolutions for publication.

In order that these diseases may be kept from this State the College wishes information on any outbreak in order that they may get the disease under control before it becomes serious. One of these diseases, called "Flag Smut," is not related to the other smuts, and manifests itself on the leaf. This disease saps the vitality of the plant so that they rarely head out, making a total loss of the crop. The other disease, known as "Take-All,- " causes the wheat plant to cease growing and remain in a stunted condition. It usually stunts plants in irregular patches, causing a spotted appearance in the field. Growers of wheat who notice symptoms of wheat diseases similiar to those described, are requested to communicate with the County Agent, who will investigate the field and if deemed necessary get the help of the specialists from the College to furnish the best information possible on control work. These diseases are causing considerable loss in some sections of the coun- f try and care should be taken to see that they do not get scarted here. Also where the disease is caught when it is first starting, eradication is comparatively easy but after the disease has spread over the country, it presents a serious problem. The Department of Labor has published statistics to show that there is at present a surplus of farm labor. In the spring of 1920 there were just 69 applications for every 100 places on the farm; now we are told that there are 109 men in sight for every 100 farm places. The Baltimore Sun construes this as indicating that there will be a marked reduction in crop production costs during the present year. Last year, the Sun thinks, che farmers had to bid against each other for farm labor and this year labor is seeking Obviously labor employment. costs on the farm must come down. No doubt there is much truth e in this, for try as we ma . cannot get away from the rork-ing- 3 of the laws of supply and demand. But unless, the Evening Post is mistaken, the farmers of the country have fearned something about labor in the past few years. It is necssary to pay farm labor better and to . make the conditions of employment more attractive, or che best workman will unquestionably filter back to the cities. A period of cessation in industrial production solved the farm labor problem for the momant, but, as the industries resume operations, the labor will go back to the cities unless satisfactorily taken care of on the farm. Farm production in America is going to be a very important, part of the national life during the next few years. Of course farm production costs must come down for the farmer to make money, and they are coming down.- -? Louisville Post.

A bill has been introduced in the Massachusetts Legislature which provides that a fine of $5,-0- 0 shall be imposed on every citizen who fails to vote in a city, State or national election. There is small possibility that such a measure will be passed, but it calls attention to a serious ill of the country, namely, the indifference of many of the best citizens to the conduct of the Government. Voting is one of the first duties of citizenship, and if every voter would regard himself as an interested stockholder in the management of this big corporation of ours known as Government, the evil would be soon corrected.

Shorter hours on the farm r The time has come when the Democrats of the State should begin to look about for a candidate for Governor in 1923. The, party has had its lesson and the welfare of the state demands that it be restored to power, but it will not win, and should not, unless it deserves to win. It will not deserve to win unless it nominates a ticket in whom the people regardless of party have confidence.

The situation outlined by the Chief Justice is particularly ap plicable to Kentucky, which, in the absence of any Federal law, under the decision of the highest court is placed in the anomalous position of being unable to regu late the conduct of a candidate for United States Senator or Congressman, although having a drastic "itate law regulating the practices of everybody else from Governor down to Constable who may happen to be seeking "nominations in the same primary. When the Corrupt Practices Bill was presented to the 1916 Legislature it contained provisions making it applicable to senatorial and congressional candidates in the primary; but these were exempted on the ground that the Federal Act fully provided for the campaign practices of such candidates and that no State regulations could be made to apply to them. Thus did the State wash its hands of any interference in Federal primaries. V I through the usual methods used by them, should nominate a often done , ticket, as they have 'inithe past, it would be better for the party if no ticket at all should! be nominated. Unless the Democratic voters in the state take more interest in the nomination of a ticket than they did four years ago the wily pol iticians will name (he ticket and we would probably have a repetition ofjwhat happened in our last State election. It is necessary to have a new deal and a equare deal. If the Democratic voters do not get what they want, it is their own fault.

The first deep test oil well drilled in Wayne county has just been completed at 2,100 feet and is reported at 1,500 barrels. The well is located about fifteen miles from Somerset, near Mill Springs. The well was drilled in by Chicago capital and has created quite a great deal of excitement in this section. This was purely, a 'wildcat" project, being about ten miles from any production. This will cause quite a number of deep test wells to be drilled in this section."

These quotas will be made in both conferences in time to appraise the 100,000 Methodists in the two jurisdictions of their pro portionate shares before tne actual appeal is to be made from May 29 to June 5. Plans now being made include intensive ground work for the participation of every layman in the movement, which is being directed in the Kentucky Conference by the Rev. O. B. Crockett, Winchester, educational secretary, and W. W. Ball, Maysville, financial director, and in the Louisville Conference by the Rev. Leonidas Robinson, secretary, and T. A. Luman, Louisville, financial director. As the movement is designed partly to provide enlarged means of training the youth who desire to lead lives of Christian service, interest in Kentucky is centered in the fact that the six colleges and schools here will benefit to the extent of more than $1,000, 000 by the results of the appeal. These institutions are the Lindsay-Training School, CoWilson lumbia; Kentucky Wesleyan Winchester; Logan College, RuBsellville; Morton-Ellio- tt Junior College, Elkton; John C. Mayo College, Paintsville; and Marvin University School, Clinton. All of the bishops of the M. E. Church, South, will speak in Louisville pulpits Sunday, May 1, in behalf of the plan.

Stressing the point that for years it has been increasingly difficult to obtain good cavalry mounts, Colonel Armstrong calls attention to the dire need of them which the A. E.
