meeting of the Rob Roy Lo folluwingtI Whereas A proposition for a change in the nouns of maintaining or wm king our county roads has been sub mitted to the Honorable Fiscal Court of Ohio county and Whereas The citizens of the county were requested in said proposition to express their opinion of samethere Pore we as citizens and electors of tho county do hereby express our selves as follows Be it Resolved 1st We are opposed to the present system of maintaining the public roads because only a portion of our male inhabitants such as live outside of our incorporated townsare compelled to maintain roads and that too by hard labor 2nd We are opposed to the propos ed plan because it makes no change in regard to those who labor on roads I only increases the amount of labor 3rd We oppose the proposed plan because it gives to the court or Judge thereof the power to appoint an overseerer in each precinct in the county and pay him a price per day and delegate power to him that he may employ men to work at a sal ary under him thus enabling the court or Judge to build up a polltl cal machine which In our Judgment would work much harm In the county 4th We oppose the proposition because under It we will be compelled to pay an unreasonable price to b exerppt or he forced to work under a boss in any part of our precinct In which told boss may see fit to put us 5th We oppose the proposition be cause the electors of our Incorporated- a towns will not contribute to the main taming of the roads In the same pro portion to their wealth as does the country manthereby causing an une qual division of taxes and because it will force the poor laborer who has no property to contribute as much to roads as his wealthy neighbor who receives much more benefit from the road than his poor neighbor tlith Be it further resolved That atwe favor a tax levied by the court od the property of the individuals of the county and on the head of each elector thereof sufficient to keep in repair all county roads We favor this plan because In our judgment it is the only fair and equitable way the public improvements can he successfully had It would be just as fair and right to compel the farmer to governingscounty or as compel him to keep the county roads repair 17th If it Is not constitutional for the Honorable Fiscal Court to levy a road tax then we most respectfully ash that Honorable body to open a poll to the people of the county that we may settle this very Important question by taking the sense of the legal voters thereon We ark tired being called upon to maintain all county roads and we ask and expect fethe hearty cooperation of all Equity men and friends of tho farmer to us in placing Ohlo county where sh so justly belongs abreast of the times and alongside of other progressive counties In our grand old Common faith and forever abandon the old roadhand system of roadworking g that originated In the wilds of Peru among the savages of Mexico or the heathen

Drumme- Has Steed That Points Like a Dog Glasgow Ky Dec 2QMr W D King a popular dry goods salesman Who travels through Southern Ken tucky and Teriessee and who Is personally known to every merchant every hotel man and many of the citi zens scattered over his territory has a beautiful pair of horses which he drives on his trips and which perhaps are without an equal anywhere The not only make a stylish apearance and are much admired for their beauty but Dan the lead horse has remark able traits that make him quite out of the ordinary Ho Is what might be termed a bird horse for he Is able to scent and set a covey of birds as accurately as a welltrained bird dog When this trait in Dan was first noticed his owner was rather unwilin to believe that the horse possesed th instinct and rather credited it to ac cldcntbut as Dan kept up this practic- from time to time his master was un wlllngljij forced into the belief that Dan was a real bird horse For Instance the team might be go ing along the road at a lively trot when all at once Dan will come to a sudden halt and make a point and you always rely on finding a covey of quail not far away After the fact became evident to Mr King he secured a gun which he car ries with him and in making his trips across the country he kills numbers of birds all on acount of his horse finding them Mr King has no explanation to of fer as to why Dan performs this feat but supposes that he must have bee taught it He claims ithat the hors sets the birds from scent as he fre quently makes a point where It would be impossible for him to see the birds Another trait in Dan is his remark able love for children which he shows in many ways when he Is near them He will caress a child neigh after them and has been known to leave h1 feed to be with them Mr King values his team very high ly both as a matter of attachment and comerclally Cures Blood Skin Diseases Cancer Greatest Blood Purifier Free If your blood is impure thin dis eased hot or

Was Invented by a Poor Man Why Had Failed as a Merchant There Is one little Instrument In which tile Interest of all dnssea of people iu this country never diminishes through all the changing KV UOIIH of the year from the first day of January to the last day of December It regulates the business pulse of the nation stud Is the shrine to which men of all occupa tons turn And this little Instrument Is the thermometer which bears tilt name of Fahrenheit Before the seventeenth century rumen could only judge of the amount of heat prevailing at any place by their perfsonal sensations and could only of the weather In u very Indefinite way as hot or very hot cold or very cold In that century several attempts were made by scientific experimenters means of tubes containing oil spin ts of wine and other substances to es tallish a satisfactory mesons of meas uring heat but none of them proved successful Even Sir Isaac Newton who applied his great mind to this work and also the noted astronomer Halley failed In their attempts to pro duce a heat measure It was reserved to Gabriel Daniel Fahrenheit an obscure and poor man a native of Dautztg to give to the world the instrument which has proved to be so serviceable to mankind He hull failed In business us u merchant and having a taste for mechanics and chemistry began a series of experi meats for the production of thermome tots At first he made these Instru meats with alcohol but soon became convinced that the semIsolid mercury was a more suitable article to use into glass tube- Fahrenheit had removed from Dnnt zlg to Amsterdam and there about the year 1720 he made the mercury timer mometer which has ever since been fashioned much like the original The basis of his plan was to marls on the tube the two points respectively which water Is congealed and boiled and to graduate the space between He began with an arbitrary marking beginning with 32 degrees because he found that the mercury descended 32 degrees more before coining to what he thought the extreme cold resulting from a mixture of Ice water and snl ammoniac In 1724 he published dls tlnct treatise on time subject of his ex and the conclusions that hud thoefrom Celsius of Stockholm soon niter suggested the more rational graduation of u hundred degrees between freezing and boiling point This was the scull grade thermometer Reaumur proposed another graduation which hats been accepted by the French but by far the i largest part of the civilized world Fahrenheits scale has been accepted stud used with 32 degrees as freezing 55 degrees as temperate OfJ degrees as blood heat and 212 degrees as boiling point It Is true that the zero of Fahren belts scale Is a solecism since it does j not marls the extreme to which heat can be abstracted Tills little blemish however does not seem to have been of IIn practical consequenceIIArctic explorers scribing temperatures below the zero of Fahrenheit and scientists have pro duced artificially temperatures far
