A new gas well has been opened up and will be piped into the main line of the Cloverport Gas Company within a short time. The well is located below the Mur- '- lini! 'H-'- I - K-- mry tri- rrtrrt V - ;. X ( J - I ray Roofing Tile Company near the river and is one that had been abandoned for several year. Mr. W. J. Wor den manager of the Cloverport Gas Company has been at work on the well for over a year, cleaning it out, recovering tools, etc that were encased in it. The flow of gas fronr the new well is expected to increase the present supply to a considerable extent. Thus far into the winter the gas supply has been coiupartively good. Only during the severe cold siaps was the pressure extremely low. Parents and the general public are earnestly requested to attend the monthly meeting of the Association at the Public ' School building next Friday afternoon at 3:30 o'clock. Every member should be the.re, and if possible, bring somebody 'else 'along. Let's make it the banner meeting of the year. Boys and girls should press the matter to the attention of their parents. A beautiful Mona Lisa has been bought and will be presented to the room having the greatest number of parents present. This picture is a copy of one of the world's greatest paintings and will be a pride to the room holding it. An interesting program will be rendered, and general items will be discussed at the meeting. Refreshments will be served by the High School girls. Thus far the results of the P. T. A. have been most gratifying, and it will continue to be so, if each member gets behind the organization to push and push hard. Supt. Peters.

HISTORY OF NUMBER Forty years ago an old doctor was putting up a medicino for diseases of the blood, that cured the worst cases of blood troubles, and time proved that the cures were permanent. After many years I secured the prescription (being a druggist), and took each ingredient separately and referred to my U. S. Dispensatory and other authoritative books on medicine and found the medical prop"Emerties net down as follows: ployed in diseases of the glandular system, in blood troubles, eczema, liver and stomach constipation, ca ckrpplo rheumatism, troubles, 40 I I I you 1 ? tarrh, in sores, ulcers, pimples, Akin eruptions, mercurial and lead poison- ing. Under Its use-- bodily eruptions and scrofulous swellings that have withstood all other treatment disappear as if by magic." To commemorate my fortieth year as a druggist I named this medicine "Number 40 For Tho Blood." J. 0. Mendenhall, F.vansville, Ind.

I will sell for cash only. I am doing this for two reasons. One is it will place me in position to sell you goods from 10 to 15 per cent less than I can sell them now. The capital it takes to carry long standing accounts compels a merchant to sell goods for a larger per cent of profit. Besides it enables the man that pays cash to buy his goods a great deal cheaper and the man that buys on credit can borrow money and save from C to 10 per cent by paying cash. And another thing it eliminates all rrors that are liable to happen in book keeping. Second, it will do away with the work and expense of keeping books which adds largely to the overhead cost of doing business. As I am goi.ig to adopt the cash system would ask that everyone who is indebted to please make their arrangemnts to settle all accounts by the 1st of the New Year 1921. I am sure it will mean much in dollars and cents to both parties concerned. I want to thank my many friends and customers for past favors and solicit your valuable patronage in the future. !

The investigators point out that with land paying but 3 per cent on capitalization, and loans running at 0 per cent or more, buying a farm on a large margin of credit is a difficult undertaking for the farmer of average ability as a manager.

There is a penalty of from $10 to $100 for owners of dogs who fail to get licenses Out of the estimated 1,000 dogs in the county, 11 have been licensed so far It's evident that a lot of folks arc holding thcmelvcs liabel to a fine. It's just such failures as this on the part of those who try to evade the law in paying dog licenses, taxes on money, diamonds, etc., that hold our county back. We complain of bad roads, poor schools and low funds in the county treasury when we are directly responsible for the same. There arc those who think that the more taxes they can be exempted from and the more licenses they can avoid paying the shrewder they are in financies. When all along, if thy did but know it, they are robbing themselves, their families and friends, of better roads, better schools and better living conditions in genetal right in their own communities. There is nothing gained by the man or woman who tries to evade the law, either county, state or nation, in any one thing. If you are fortunate enough to own a good dog, and can afford to feed it with the high cost of food, it is justice, to the animal and to yourself that his license should be paid yearly.

Herbert Hoover was the genial host and at his side at the banquet table was an empty high chair representing the "invisible guest." The banquet was given to raise funds for the starving European children, and there were 900 men and women who attended. The dinner receipts totalled $2,011,221. An appeal for a starving child, whether foreign born or not, is most likely to touch the hear, of man and woman for unlimited amounts. Burma is woman's paradise.

At the same time congress at home was repealing the Missouri compromise and wiping out the dead line against slavery, which had been drawn a quarter of a century before. This threw open Kansas to a wild scramble between settlers who wished the new territory to be free and those who wished It to be slave. Then and there the Civil war began. "Border ruffians," as the north called the settlers, who rushed In from Mis. sourl and other slave states, and settlers no less rough in their fighting who poured In from the free states, quickly turned that primeval Into "Bleeding Kansas." Rival territorial governments were set up by the two factions, and Pierce threw the weight of the federal power on the side of those who were desperately striving to create another slave state.

M. Herbette has been traveling through Germany for some time gathering material "The most competent persons, speaking for the Allies, he continues, "affirm that Germany is materially incapable of commencing a great war within a goodly number of years." Disarmament, so far as artillery is concerned, he says, is proceeding satisfactorily. "The number of cannon delivered is in the neighborhood of 28,000 and about now have been destroyed. On the other hand Germany is far from having surrendered enough rifles (hardly 2,000.-00and machine guns." Disarming of the civil population, now going on, is expected to yield better results. Dismantling of the German navy by the British, also is in progress "and is being carried on with exceptional vigor." "In addition to all this," comments M. Herbette. "the prestige of the military has fallen unbelievely low beyond the Rhine " Organizations of former officers, he says, are being formed constantly, and Germans, if they wished war, would find officers to lead them, but, except in Bavaria and possibly East Prussia, these associations are isolated and "growing rusty." To illustrate how the military spirit persists, he tells of a young lieutenant he knows who puts on his uniform and wears all his decorations at breakfast, but who does not appear in uniform in public. "The masses of workers," he adds, "suffered too greatly during the war either at the front or by the priva tions Deiiiua the lines, not to detest the military regime, which in return for all their sacrifices brought only a disaster without parallel.

I had but little desire anytime for food, and frequently would turn so sick at the tabic I'd have to leave it. "What little I ate caused trouble in my stomach and hurt me all over Sometimes I felt like I was loaded down with lead, and had such bad smothering spells I'd have to gasp for breath. I tried lots of medicines and just kept on going from bad to worse. "Finally mother prevailed on me to take Tanlac, and then very soon all my troubles were over. It proved to be the very medicine I needed, and helped me right from the start. I've finished my fifth bottle now, have gained back eleven pounds of my lost weight, and feel even better than when I was sixteen "Tanlac is a grand medicine and I'm glad to tell others what it has done for me. I've just bought two bottles to send to relatives in England." Tanlac is sold in Cloverport at Wedding's Drug Stove, in Kirk by Mattingly Bros , in Addison by L. D. Addison, in Amnions, by Win H.

Washington. Dec. 28 "Uncle Joe" Cannon, war horse of the House of Representatives, today established a new American record With the close of a dull House session he 'passed the mark for length of service set by Justin Smith Morrjll Vermont, who as Senator and Representative, served 43 years, nine months and 24 days. The will begin tomorrow adding new time to his own record, with the hope of reaching the ripe old age of 100 and beating Gladstone's record of 53 years in the British House of Commons. "Uncle Joe's" achievement will be celebrated in the House tomorrow, with Champ Clark, himself a veteran, who retires March 4, leading'' uhe speaking ceremonies. Mr. Cannon also will speak, and many of the older members will ask time for a few remarks. Walking about the corridors of the Capitol today chewing his long black cigar, Mr. Cannon told a friend there was no use in offering a little advice to younger Representatives because somebody else always is thinking up smart things and attributing them to him. The remark, charged to Mr. Cannon that they put spurs on the heels of Army officers to keep their feet from slipping off the desk, was never uttered by him. "But what's the use?" he asked. Counting his victory in the recent landslide, Mr. Cannon has been elected to Congress 23 times. He is now ending the 44th year of service. First elected in 1872, he has just kept coming to Congress ever since, with the exception of two bad Novembers, when his people failed to return him. On May 7, next, he will be 85 years old Few of his friends remember that he was born at Guilford. N. C.

Those who believe that riches cannot be obtained without sacrificing the principles of honor and integrity are wrong.
