Repeatedly he had been offered places with hotels in Other cities, places that were more lucrative than the one he held, but he preferred to stay in the city.

Galloway Desires All Pupils to Start in at the Opening of School. French and Domestic Science to be Stressed. On Monday morning September 2, at 0 o'clock A. M. the Cloverport Public Schools will open for the 191S- - lg session. We are glad to announce that most of last year's teachers will be in the school again this year, which will materially aid in getting things running smoothly without delay. It is earnestly requested that all children who possible can be present at the opening session, so that the classes will not be interrupted by pupils coming in after work has started. We invite all patrons of the school to attend the opening. Some mutters of interest to the community will be discussed among which we mav mention the compulsory school law. We shall try to explain this law for the benefit of any who may not fully under stand it, so that there may be no travel. Mr. Jones was born November IS, 1S.", in the hotel in Hardinsburg. Ky., of which his father, A. VV. Jones, was proprietor. Upon his father's death he accepted a position offered him in Louiville, and March :J4, lHTii, arrived here to begin his career as hotel clerk with Col. Joseph B. Alexander, at the Alexander Hotel, Eighth and Main streets. When Col. Alexander became proprietor of the Willard, at the time of Louisville's great exposition, Mr. Jones presided over the office. In those days the Willard was political headquarters and the leading men of later. The Cloverport High School offers exceptional advantages to pupils of Cloverport and Breckinrlnge county who wish to secure a first class high school education. We offer a course equal to any school in a town the size of Cloverport, and meet fully the requirements of the best colleges. Besides the usual courses in English, History, Latin, Science and Mathematics, we expect to offer strong courses in French and Domestic Science and if there is a demand for it, Agriculture. Let us all work together to make this a banner year for the school and make the opening the best in the history of the school. The superintendent would be glad to hear from anyone who is thinking of entering high school, and show why Cloverport is the best. O. P. Galloway, Supt. the Democratic party gathered there. The famous Patchwork Club was organized at the time with the Willard as its headquarters. He possessed a cleverness that was astounding in anticipating the wants of the guests, and an unfailing mem ory of faces and names. M. Jones himself was seldom forgotten, for he possessed a beard of such notable length and luxuriance that men once seeing it would never foget it. He was a member of the First Christian church for over thirty years. He was also a member of the Royal Arcanum and the Louisville Lodge of Masons, No. 400. He is survived by his widow, who was formerly Miss Mollie R. Tucker, daughter of the late T. C. Tucker. Funeral services will be held from the residence this afternoon at 4 with burial private in Cave Hill cemetery. Pall bearers will be Dr. T. D. F'inck, Maj. John H. Leathers, W. Scott Miller, George Geutig, J. C. Bennett, Walter S. Edinger, John Settle, Alexander M. Woodruff, Roger G. McGratb and Dr. Gilbert Smith. Courier-Journal. Sawyer Home Place Sold. Mr. Chas. P.

We have not traveled a dust road or seen one, and what is most remarkable is the shade trees along them. You can trace the roads for miles winding through the beautiful valleys and across the mountains. Now for agriculture, it does not measure up to the States, but there is more waste land in Breckinridge county than I have seen in all my travel across I'rance. For crops, they do not raise any here. Rye wheat, oats and hay are the field crops, hay is their big field harvest. Their beautiful vineyards have the appearance of a flower garden to us boys who have not seen them before. ' Now with the other boys helping me we will tell of our little experiences in the trenches. F"or fifteen days, except for the rats, we were not disturbed but one time. On the fifth of July the Boche decided to cele brate at our expense and they had the satisfaction of shooting a few holes in the air. The first tim you bar a big shell whistling near you, it is not a pleasant feeling and it does not take you long to decide what to do. We soon found the shortest route to the dugout, but we were very thankful that he shared his home with us. There is one thing we have got to do if we come back to the States with a whole hide, that is to move quick. You have got to move and do your thinking afterwards. Now this the life in France and the trenches as we Breckinridge fellows see it. I will now give you the names of the Breckinridge county boys: Corporals, Robert Noble, Gilbert Glasscock. Pvt. Johnny Avitt, William C. Mattingly, William T, Jolly, Leslie Jones. James Pate. James Wood, James Ritchie, William Tate, Coleman Wheatlcy, Herman Smith, Norton, Hubert Parks.

Mr. Whitworth is a mighty good citizen, a splendid farmer and we hate to lose him from our county. Our loss is Hardin county's gain. Tbe heroic exploits and hairbreadth escapes of D'Artagnan, as narrated by Pumas In "The Three Musketeers," fade Into comparative Insignificance when compared with the achievements of Rene Betrand, as told by himself. Minus an arm and n leg, with nine medals glittering on his breast, and asserting that his body bore more than thirty bullet and bayonet wounds, "Pri vate Rene Betrand of the French colonial Infantry" posed in Paris as the greatest hero of the war. Now he hns been arrested as perhaps one of the war's greatest fakirs and the police authorities declare that he lost his leg and arm in a railway accident and that five imprisonments, instead of five citations, composed his record.
