Telegram received from Washington this morning removes the four pound per person per month restriction on purchase of sugar for householders and removes the public eating place restriction of the use of only four , .unds of sugar to ninety meals. This removal returns sugar to the normal and usual course of trade at a time that insures the free movement of sugar to our people for the Christmas holidays. It follows that in hotels, etc.. General Order No. 8 and No. 9 are discontinued and sugar bowls may be returned to the table. Sugar cards and records of retailers are discontinued. Should sugar again become short by reason of the need of feeding Europe, the people will be called upon for strict limitations again. Everyone should remember, however, that the Hoarding Section of the Food Act remains in full force and effect. Fred M. Sackett, Federal Food Administrator For Kentucky.

Over ?825,000.00 of capital raised from the sale of stock has been invested in properties and equipment in the twelve months of the company's existence. Its outstanding position today as the leader among the independent oil companies operating in ' entucky may be ascribed to following this policy of expansion. Results accomplished to date are but a forerunner of those which may be expected to ensue from the further development of the company's concededly valuable holdings, and expansion in the field of its operations through increasing the size of its refining plant, now operating, and the purchase of additional producing properties. In view of progress to date "McCombs" stock at 2.00 per share is an extremely attractive investment opportunity with the probabilities of unlimited enhancement in value. 2 V "S Dividends 24 Per Annum Hargis No. 4 C m Wells No. 85, 80 and 87 Completed. 250 Barrel Well drilled and shot.

We saw a hoise that was skinned and had been sliced like they had been eating off it. Whether they ate it or not I don't know, but the girl said they did. Germans Eat Human Flesh. When we were at the Hindenburg tunnel, we saw something that we had read about, you know we saw in papers where they cooked up Germans. Well it is so. They had places where they cooked them one place they had them chopped up in short pieces and a dreati pipe run from there to another place for the blood to go to, and the Door was knee deep with dead Germans. There was the chop block over in the corner where they chopped them up to cook out the fat to get grease to put in high explosive shells. So you can tell every one it was sure (O.

Our prices are reasonable. ONLY A FEW SHOPPING DAYS ARE LEFT BEFORE CHRISTMAS Take advantage of the fleeting time and come to the store where you know you will find just the thing you want. In our display of Christmas goods we have tried to select presents that are both patriotic and suitable gifts to please every member of the family. Mother and Daughter Would be happier to get a new dress each than anything else you can think of. A woman never has too many clothes. We have a large stock of taffetas and silk poplins that are being offered at 10 per cent off the regular price, and a dress pattern off of any of these materials would certainly not come amiss for mother or daughter regardless of their ages. Father and Son May like something to wear too. We are confident that they would be pleased with an overcoat or a suit from our store. These suits and coats are all wool, made in the newest styles, and the quality of them is up to the highest standard. Prices are 20 per cent below the real worth. Add a necktie and a pretty shirt to the suit of clothes and then you will have an ideal gift. Furniture If you want a lasting gift, why not remember some one of the family with a comfortable rocking chair? Then we have dressers, dining room tables and chairs, rugs, kitchen cabinets, dishes of all kinds, curtains and other things to make home more attractive and liveable.
