box tho lodge will flourish and do much good Miserable Service The mail connections or rather the lack of connections at Junction City are disgusting in the extreme The Cincinnati mail sent that way fre quently gets there twentyfour hours late The Lexington daily papers frequently miss a day or two and sometimes we get a bundle containing the issues of three days time The Harrodsburg Democrat of

are forced to stay indoors all day and get no exercise The most prominent business men are among the patrons of the place Mr Smith complies strictly to the law boisterous conduct and absolutely prohibits the drinking of liquor on the premises He tries faithfully to keep boys from hanging about the place but of course this is almost THE RECORD is glad he is making a success of the venture A Good Man Gone By some unaccountable manner the copy for a notice of the death of Mr T M Goodknight was misplaced and no mention of the occurrence made by us Mr Goodknight was for connected with the Lincoln Democrat and was one of the most widelyknown men in central Ken tucky He was a Christian and enjoyed the friendship of all who knew him Although his death occurred some three weeks ago we want to say that in his taking off the community loses a good citizen and the wife a devoted and noble husband THE RECORD regrets the misplacing of the notice but such things will happen Moves to Lancaster The Mt Vernon correspondent to the Stanford Journal says James I White and family have moved to much to the regret of the citizens of this county Mr White is energy and push has spent 20 years in our countya of which he was deputy sheriff and later sheriff and filled other posi tions of trust in all of which he discharged his duties to the of the people He has been one of the leaders at all times in any movement that tended to the upbuild ing and improvement of our county and especially did he fight for and much for good roads While he doesnt take the county as much money as some who have prece ded him he carries a clean record of honesty and is a gentleman Dr McKee It is with deep regret that we that Dr McKee has tendered his resignation as pastor of the Presbyterian church and will preach no more here for the present As in last issue he became ill during Uncle Joe Hoppers meeting and was forced to return t his home in His engagement does not until December and as it was necessary to find another he did not feel that he would be justified it moving his library and other furniture just for so short a time No man has done more good in the community than has Dr McKee and that he will not remain with us is regretted by all irrespective ofchurch affiliations rhe people of Lancaster have learned to love him and many are the offered for his com plete recovery to health A

ANNOUNCEMENT TO THE CITIZENS OF GARRARD COUNTY At the practically unanimous demand of my own party and urgent of other friends I have at last consented to become a candidate for the office of County Attorney on the Republican ticket I had not expected to again ask for the suffrage of my fellowcitizens but in view of the great number of electors regardless of their party who have seen proper to insist on my nomination I have with some consented to accede to their request In thus again asking the citizens of my county for their support for this one of the most important offices in the gift of ist people I am not unmindful of the fact that it is an office fraught withthe gravest responsibilities and duties it having not only an important influence on the maintainance of peace and good order throughout the county but is also perhaps the most important factor in shaping and controlling the amount of taxes that your Fiscal Court finds it necessary to levy on your property each year to meet the current of your county affairs And in this connection I hope I may be pardoned for referring with pride to my former administration of this important duty during the term I had the honor to occupy the office and when after my repeated on all useless extravagance and on certain most time honored leaks in your county treasury the levy necessary to meet all the current expenses of your county and then leave a handsome surplus in your treasury at the close of the year was less than onethird barely more than onefourth of the amount of each and successive levy for county purposes made since my retirement from that position And since the late decision of the Court of Appeals that the Court of the city of Lancaster no longer has jurisdiction to try whisky cases and with blind tigers not only flourishing throughout the county but with their Licenses all over the corporate limits of Lancaster actually their dispensing to your sons each and every week three barrels of whisky and over two thousand bottles of beer with the county attorney being here niter practically the only safeguard to prevent their extending their sphere and running even wider open than now this office is of even greater import ince than ever before to such of our parents as wish to protect their boys from this most vicious and destructive influence and it well behooves them to make no mistake in selecting and deciding who shall hereaftersay whether this condition of things shall continue to exist With a high conception of the duties of this office with a higher of my obligation to my own and my neighbors sons having stead lastly during the twentytwo years of my law practice refused to defend the ceeper of a blind tiger nor in the thirtynine years of my existence taken a drink of whisky if honored pin by your election to this high trust I pledge you that whatever of experience ability or talent I may possess shall be exerted to so administer its important duties as only encourage and promote peace and good order and a strict obedience to the law throughout the county but also to prevent any and all illegitimate Improper and unnec essary drains and expenses on your county treasury Fearing that pressing business engagements and the limited time left for my canvass may prevent my seeing each of you personally I take this method announcing my candidacy and assuring you that Ifpycandidacy meets with your approval Ishall be very grateful for whatever attfetance you ray ren jet toward promoting my election Bwpecolly Auflirtf w MCC JOHNSTON solicitation affiliation reluctance expenses assaults

mechanical steed on our civilization is best in the growth and improve meat of the country highways which in a country that stretches between two oceans and includes within its boundary nearly all the climates and phjsical characteristics of a mighty continent have been slowly evolved of high engineering skill and achieve ment American country roads have lagged in the development of the na tions material growth and expansion until within the past few years With the exception of the few old post roads established in colonial days when the stage coach was the only vehicle for comfortable travel there were not more than two or three country highwaysNif passable physi cal condition summer and winter a score of years ago in the United StatesMilitary roads were the earliest in existence in all countries and the protective necessity of having parts of the empire joined togeth er by highways over which an army could be quickly moved inspired most of the great engineering feats in road building in the past This factor had little or no influence in American in dustrial life Our boundaries abut those of other powerful nations we might at any time wage war Consequently no thought of establishing lines of fortifications connected by military highways ever entered the head of our most warlike legislators or presidents Military roads were not features 6f our na tional development and though factprs in the growth of many European states they were almost nil in American history The modern road building move ment is attributed to the bicycle and automobile but it must be said that it was rather the conditions of the times which were ripe for the change that made the popularity of these mechanical steeds llailroad con struction had almost reached its important trunk lines were al ready paralleling each other so that they cut disastrously into each oth er s profits and the most important parts of the country were joined to gether by the ribbons of steel Rail road stocks were declining in value enterprises of this character What the country needed was more feeders country roads leading frqm farms mines and producing lands For months in the year the great agri cultural sections were shut off from the railroads b almost impassable country roads Mills and manufac turing plants located on streams of water that furnished excellent motive power could not market their prod ucts in winter The logging camps and the mining companies were like wise helpless in winter Thus for a good portion of the the coun trys commerce Was the producing centers were cut off from the world We rapidly grew into a nation of cities as a consequence There was little attraction in the country except in the summer season Impassable aIL lUau7 SUDPoHe indistinguishabletrail different didnot withwhom limit capital year paralyzedand as exemplified potent muddj roads made rural life in the Even the small villages suffered and dwindled in numbers and population In the stone pavements defied the mud of winter and thither our population flocked building for themselves habitable places where they would not be shut indoors for months at a time The bicycle and later the automo bile spread a propaganda of good road building at a time when condi tions were ripe for a mighty change and the fire that smoldered for a time soon broke forth into flame There was need of better highways to im prove trade to develop the country and to add to our appreciation of coun try life Witlt the new movement there commenced a countercurrent in the trend of our population cityward The country was improved by good roads so that people who had been shut up in the city now longed to re turn to the less artificial life in small towns and villages Rural existence suddenly received new charms and with the extension of good highwajs there sprung up handsome rural homes and estates The love for country life has suddenly developed so that it marks a new era in our existence It is not that our cities are less prosperous or that they will cease to grow in size and wealth but that the country is better appreciated as a place of residence and that it has been made so by the better roads

enable one to become the best that he is capable of becoming and this means that he will become a Christian and not only a Christian but one of the best of Chris tians Trueness to ones self is true ness to the obligation to be just what God wants one to be which is a Chris tian God commands all men every where to repent and believe on His Son and God has given this command because for one thing lIe wants all men to be thoroughly true to them selves And this trueness to self involves the studious use of such means as are best calculated to develop the powers with which God has endowed one and de velop them in those directions which will issue not only in making one worth much more to himself than he would be without the best develop ment but also in making others more vvorthful than they would be without ones cultured ministry It is a most inspiring thought that in ones being energetically and wisely true to him self he is thereby making himself true to his fellows It being true thait no one liveth to himself alone it follows that in being true to himself he helps others to be true to theinselves rhe young person who is broadly true to his own mind and soul is a pos itive helper to his young companions His example inspires them with a to be his equal in development to be as unselfish in purpose to be as is It is thus seen that true ness to ones self is the reverse of ig noble selfishness While one receives the greatest of benefits in being de votedly true to himself 3et the very spirit of such trueness leads one to desire to serve unselfishly the weal of other people Then too bear in mind that being true to yourself means that jou must add to the original capacity of person ality which God gave to you so that you will become as fast as possible larger than you now are and more capable of serving the will of God H C Wetherbe in Baptist Union What Do You A German allegory tells of two lit tIe girls They hail been playing to gether strange garden and soon one ran in

lush 1 districts t I t J r k IRRIGATION IN INDIA The System In Is Crude nut Ef teethe ami Adapted to Local Conditions In India a simple yet effective method of irrigation has long been in vogue but only recently has It attracted the attention of foreigners The apparatus consists of a long clumsily fashioned balancing pole which is fastened at the middle to the fork of a tree At one end of this primitive balance which is as stout as an ordinary beam is fixed another long pole the lower end of which sunk in to a well and carries a large vessel made of baked clay At the opposite end of this pole are two coolies who are constantly in motion and thus living counter balance One after another they walk with great strides over this narrow path way passing with a mechanical yet n is forma Vogue IRRIGATION IN INDIA rhythmical and supple movement from one end of the pole to the other and hardly touching a slender bamboo which is within their reach and which is intended to serve as a guide When they arrive at one end and are bowed down beneath the weight they know that at the other end the enormous vessel has been filled with water and raised to the surface of the ground Large notches cut in the trees serve as a ladder for the barefoted Indians and render it easy for them to reach the tip of the pole at the moment when having arrived at the end of its course it is almost vertical While they are making this ascent with incomparable agilit3 another man empties from the enormous vessel into trenches b3 simply oscillating the ves sel after which the maneuver is re peatedThe work of the ooolies is by no means so onerous as it seems for pains are always taken to have the pole correctly and of the proper weight and in this way the task is much simplified This method of irrigation says Dr II Sicard a traveler is not applicable everywhere since it is essential that tile subsoil should be moist and it is inferior to the methods in Europe On the other hand it has the advantage of being entirely appropriate to the economic and social conditions of India for machinery there is scarce and expensive and man though poorly paid is still the most useful beast of burden X Y Herald SHRINKAGE OF GRAIN Renlt of Elaborate Experiments at Various Experiment Station Prove Instructive Wheat fluctuates in weight to the dryness of the air The extent of this variation under ordi nary conditions doeis not exceed six per cent but where the grain is taken from an intensely dry climate to a comparatively damp one the gain may amount to 25 per cent Oats stored in the fall lost in one instance over three per cent by the following Slay less than two per cent in the second instance and exactly two in the third and in the fourth lost but seven pounds in 100 bushels Corn when the entire plant is stored in the silo suffers a very considerable loss in weight As an average of four tests this loss amounted to 832 In other cases the loss varies from 1457 to 2036 per cent When the entire plant is cured in the field subsequent variations in weight are determined by the dryness of the air At the Connecticut station where 2736 tons of corn were cut 1 into shocks hauled to the barn later and stored for gross weight was but 4 tpns7 On 8 following the weight was 75 tons In a duplicate test 255 tons of green corn weighed but 52 tons on November 11 and gained to 85 tons by February 8 When the corn is husked in the field the loss of weight suffered by the ears depends on their condition when hauled to the crib Very damp corn cribbed early in shrank in weight 30 per cent by the middle of February while dry corn cribbed October 21 had shrunk by the last of January 11 per cent In another case corn very dry when hauled shrunk by New Years less than three per cent At the Iowa sta tion the loss in an entire year was 20 per cent in one case and nine in another The relation the weights of kernels and cob does not stay constant as the ears dry When first husked fully 25 of the weight of the ears lies In the cob By spring less than 20 of the weight of the ear is in the cob An elaborate set of ex periments at Houghton farm showed that the shelled corn lost in weight but about 745 per cent from Octo her to March while the cobs lost ully 36per cent D C Smith 3Iich gan Station in Prairie Farmer How Plant Absorb Water Water is absorbed by the roots and

way well What do you expect a fellow to dp isled Will Sinclair as he dug his heels into the soft earth beside the fallen tree on which they were sitting You cant sxpect a man to be with you every day or weeks and not love you can you Well love you and must say it Thats just it said Clara English as jhe pouted adorably Theres no doubt you say it often enough in good sooth too For two weeks you have said nothing else until Im weary of your swan song Now please dont begin again You are a heartless flirt said the young man coldly as he rose to Ids feet You accepted my attentions well knowing your power have led me on and when I admit my humility and love scorn me I like you very much said the jirl lifting her eyes to the averted tee That is when you are good But ove is not everything Oh I know you tare money but what I want is somebody vho will be my master who will rule me want to be run away with elope of do something This thing of loving and wed ding just like common everyday folks is evolting to my soul Now when you do omething grand or smash a come well talk it over Im going in to tea now so goodby Will gazed after the lithe supple figure of lis sweetheart as she walked rapidly away iowards the distant farm house where they were putting in their vacation He was tiled with moodishncss disgust and dis temper He kney she was the loveliest creature on but being a wholesome young fellow with business instincts her wildly romantic notions caused him to shiver with fear How could he hope to make such a woman happy when he was himself satisfied with common ordinary things social and domestic He jumped up at last and striking his cane fiercely across a stump was see that less than half remained in his hand lie pulled his crush hat over his and was about to follow in the wake of the disappearing girl when he heard a low chuckle beside him He turned in a rage and saw the wrinkled and iTewhiskered face of the farmer standing by grinning in shrewd amusement Jasper Stebbins farmer and horse swapper had a keen sense of the ridiculous but also a heart big enough for a man twice his stature He bit on a piece of straw spat it out and then said I heerd ye maids love to the

wondered why Will did not appear it supper in the farmhouse She had be come so accustomed to seeing him just op josite and to chaffing him during meals hat his absence annoyed her greatly She vas silent and abstracted during supper carcely speaking a word while Aunt Mandy as her hostess was called won lered audibly what in nation was keepin Jasper out so late After the meal she oitered about the porch a bit in hopes that Vill and escort her down the country lane In fact she had begun 0 realize just how much of a part the young fellow was taking in her life and she re sented his desertion Finally she started done angry at him but determined to make icr call and get back before it was too late m spite of hint She was a good walker ind because of her wrath cared little about the incidents which otherwise might have worried her She strode on with her face Sxed on her destination glancing now and then at the new moon It was a beautiful ountry lane with rail fences on both sides and huge elms drooping with foliage the path It was a picture in the soft moonlight to attract a much less romantic mind but she was too angry to be romantic Hold on a minit lady said a rough voice at her elbow In a heap of a hurry bent ye Guess ye got time to say a word to a pore man what aint had nothin for two days The frightened girl made a futile effort to but the man stepped directly in her path As she whirled about to run the other way he caught her wrist and held her as in a vise Then with a leer he drew the lovely form toward him Help screamed the girl as she struggled to free herself Over the fence leaped a young man fierce anger gleaming from his eyes He dashed the tramp to the ground and squared away to give him more if he should rise but the vagrant had enough and crawling to a safe distance suddenly got up and vaunt the fence Clara called Will in an ngony of fear Look up my darling it is I Will The hanger is over I have driven off that foul beast You are safe in my arms Will is that you asked Clara as she lung tightly to him My brave Oh hw frightened I was You wont come near me will you Will and jhe shuddered in recollection of the peril Never was the valiant reply You are safe darling safe with me I am so glad Are you Will you let me be your pro Always Yes you have won I said I might love you if you would do something and not talk always of love You are a hero Will and I love you But how did you happen to be there just then Never mind that was the confused jhswer I was here and that is the main thing As the lovers walked away together Uncle Jasper lifted a
