Dodds, of this city, who carried off the honors of the Inter-Stat- e Association's Third Southern Handicap held at Nashville, Tenn., Investigation of the accounts of every Sheriff in Kentucky for the last liftren years has been begun by Frank P. James, State Audifor, and he expects to collect considerable money from those officials who have been delinquent in that they have not turned into the State treasury all that the State should have received The State can keep easy trace of the amount due on taxes by each Sheriff, but there are said to be many other was by which the Sheriffs can defraud the State, and the Auditor is going after these. He is also going after those who owe the State but who were not guilty of anything more than carelessness. Mr James said that one way the Sheriffs could defraud the State was by getting the Fiscal court to grant exonerations for money that had not been collected and then make the collection. For instance, a Sheriff reports to the Fiscal court that he failed to collect 81,000 on poll tax. He is exonerated on this item, but later some of the men of the county pay their poll taxes cr the Sheriff collects many. That money should go to the State, but in some instances which have been discovered it did not go to the State. Omitted property, which has been left off the Assessor's books, is also a source of fraud on the State. The property may not be assessed and the Sheriff may collect taxes without making any report which would show the collections having been made. Old Time Box Supper.

The first marriage in Kentucky, was that of Samuel Henderson to Elizabeth Calloway. On August 7, 1716, the first white child was born of parents married in Kentucky. The first plow manufactured was made by William Pogue at Harrods-burin 1770. He also made bis first loom, while his wife brought the first spinning wheel to the state and wove from the line of nettles the first piece of linen manufactured, and from buffalo wool the first piece of llnsey. The first grist mill in the state run by water power, was perhaps the one built by Capt. John near Shakerstown, in Mercer county, in 1782. The first paper mill in Kentucky was erected by Elijah Craig, near Georgetown, in 1792. The first apple seeds were planted in Mercer county by members of the McAfee company in 1775. Dr. Walter and his companion planted, the first peach seed and raised the first crop of corn cultivated by white men near Barbourville, in 1750. The first wagon of which history gives an account was run over Smith's road from Lexington to Maysville in 1782, by a man named Smith. The first steamboat or model of one in the world, was constructed by John Fitch, at Lexington, in 1765. The first railroad, about a mile in length was built by James Van Meter, in 1782. The cars were drawn by horses. The first horses were brought to the state in 1750 by Dalker ; the first cattle and hogs by Boone and his companions in 1775. The first Englishman who visited Kentucky were those under the leadership of Col. Wood who, in 1764, explored the northern boundary of the state. The first Frenchmen to visit any portion of the state were a small band of fur trappers, who in 1673 traveled in canoes down the Mississippi as far as the mouth of the Arkansas. The first white native American to visit Kentucky was John Salting, of Virginia, who in 1730, was carried as a prisoner through the state by the Indians. The first white woman who ever saw Kentucky was Miss Ingel, who, in 1756, was carried a prisoner by the Indians to Big Boone, in Boone county. The first Dutchmen to visit Kentucky were a small company who established the White Oak settle ment in Madison county.

The facts concerning the killing of Trot Morris, formerly of this county, last Wednesday evening, are given as follows by a Caruthers-vill- e correspondent: Trot Morris was shot and killed by Charlie Elis- ton yesterday evening at S o'clock at Hayti six miles west of here. At the same time Eliston also shot Jim Dillingham three times, while he begged for his life. The shots took effect in Dillingham's legs and he died Thursday morning. Morris was snot dead, one shot passing through his brain and one through his stomach. Eliston reloaded his revolver and disappeared in the swamps. The officers where on his trail in a few hours, but have lost all trace of the fugitive. At the time of the shooting all three parties were engaged in play ing a game of cards. Eliston was under the Influence of liquor and persisted in applying vile epithets to his two companions, to which Morris objected and requested Eliston to desist. As the game progressed Eliston became more vile and abusive and finally arose and drew his revolver. Morris also arose and said : "Shoot you got your gun out." Eliston said : "You think I won't shoot I'll just show you," and with these words fired. Morris fell dead without uttering a word. The enraged man then turned his smoking gun on Dilling ham, while he begged piteously to be spared. T. C. Settle and Lon Ridgeway, a youth, were watching the game, and Mr. Settle witnessed every act of the tragedy. Ridgeway fled after the first shot was fired. Ridgeway and Settle gave their testimony before the coroner's jury, and it is from their statements this report is made. These witnesses say that Morris evidently believed Eliston was joking, or merely bluffing, and that he made no effort whatever Morris and to strike his murderer. Dilligham were both unarmed. Only a small knife was found on Morris' body, and it was in his pocket with closed blade. All the parties are professional gamblers, but are well ronnected. Morris was considered fearless, but was quiet in disposition. was known as a. harmless character, and had no fighting re cord. Eliston was frequently under the influence of drink and was quarrelsome among his associates. Morris, Dillingham and hliston belonged to the same clan of poker pliyers, and have been associated fcr several yeart. So far as known Ihey were warm friends. The killing occurred undertheshed of an abandoned saw mill in a dense m " woods, one mile west of the town of Hayti. The city marshal had re cently raided and broken up the gambling rooms Inside of the city limits, and the gamblers had taken up their rendezvous at the old mill shed. Charlie Eliston was reared in Western Tennessee and Western Kentucky. Trot Morris has also been here several years. He came from Fulton, "Ky., where his wife and family reside and where his body was sent for interment, at the request of his wife. It is understood that Morris had not lived with his wife for sever al years. K. E. A. Meeting. The thirty-eigannual meeting of the Educatioal Association will be held at Estill Springs, Irvine, Ky., on June 22, 23, and 24, 1909. There is probably no place in Kentucky so well equipped and so admirably adapted to the entertainment of the Association as Estill Springs. The large home-lik- e hotel can easily accomodate four hundred people. The surroundings are beautiful and the meeting this year should be the greatest and best in the history of the Association. Using six inch badges it will require over a half mile of ribbon to supply all teachers who will attend the meeting. ht Ramer-Sha- w. Children's Day Exercises. fft Fa-ha- Woodford J.

These are distributed literally all over the earth's surface, there being no considerable spot on the globe where man has not found a foothold. In Asia the "cradle of the human race," there are now about 800,000,000 people, densely crowded, or an average of about 120 to the square mile. In Europe there are 320,000,000, aver aging 100 to the square mile, not, not so crowded as Asia, but everywhere dense, and in many places InAfrica there are 210,000,000; and ic the Americas North, Jsouth and Central liu,- 000,000, these lalter, of course, relatively thinnly scattered over broad acres. On the islands, large and small, there are probably 10,000,-00- 0 more.

New Addition Opened, A Business Parable. Once a farmer had 1,800 bushels of wheat, which he sold, not to a single grain merchant, but to 1.80Q different dealers, a bushel each. A few of them paid In cash, but far the greater number said it was not convenient then ; they would pay later. A few months passed, and the man's banV account ran low. "How is this?" he said. "My 1,800 bushels of grain should have kept me in affluence until another crop is raised, but I have patted with the grain and have instead only a vast number of accounts, so small and scattered that I cannot get around and collect fast enough to pay expenses." So he posted up a public notice and asked all those who owed him to pay quickly. But few came. The rest said r "Mine is onlv a small matter, and I will go and pay some of these days," torgetting that, though each account was very small, when all was put together thev meant a laree sum to the man. Thlnes went on thus. The man got to feelin? so badly that he fell out of bed and awoke, and, running to hlsgrainery, found that his 1,800 bushels of jjrain were still safe there. He had only been dreaming. Moral The next day the man went to the publisher of his paper and said : "Here, sir, is the pay for your paper, and when next's subscription is due you can depend on me to oav nromnllv. I stood in the position of an editor last night, and L know how he reels to have one's honestly earned money scattered all over the count rv in small amounts."

THE HICKMAN BANK OLDEST BANK IN FULTON COUNTY Capital and Surplus, $65,000.00 Beauty is a dangerous gitf. It is ever so. Like wealth, it has ruined its thousands. Thousands of the most beautiful women are destitute of common sense and common humanity. No gift from heaven is so general as the gift of beauty. In about nine cases in ten it makes her silly, senseless, thoughtless, giddy, vain, proud, frivolous, selfish, low and mean. We think we have seen more girls spoiled by beauty than by any other one thing. "She is beautiful and she knows it" is as much as to say she is spoiled. A beautiful girl is very likely to be lieve she was made to be looked at ; and so she sets herself up for a show at every window, in every door, on every corner of ths street, in every company at which opportunity offers for an exhibition of herself. And believing and acting thus, she soon becomes good for nothing else, and when she comes to be a middle aged woman she is the weakest, most sickening of all human things a faded beauty. fOOR GIRLS. Mothers train your boys to be neat in the house. They should be taught to look after themselves, and to keep their bats and coats in their proper places. Teach them this habit, and you will save many an noyances, and you will also do a kindness to the boys by teaching them neatness and Boys, as well as girls, should be taught to help in the house. How often we have been disgusted to see that the girls are made to help with the housework while the boy are allowed to play checkers, or sit at the fire toasting their toes. A boy can help clear away after a meal, sweep the floor, polish the stove or wash the dishes, just as ef lectively as a girl.

Rich parents have been taught to despise labor and to depend upon others for a living, and are perfectly helpless. The most forlorn women belong to tnis class. It Is the duty of parents to protect their (daughters from this deplorable condition. They do them a great wrong if they neglect it. Every daughter should be taugbt to earn her own living. The rich as well as the poor require this train ing. The wheel of fortune rolls swiftly around ; the rich are likely to become poor, and the poor rich. Skill added to labor is no disadvantage to the rich, and isindispentable to the poor. Well-to-d- o parents must educate their daughters to work. No reform is more imperative than this.
