The Kentucky crop report has been issued by the State department of agriculture at Frankfort. It show, that general crop condi tions in the State are good, in spite of the heavy rains. Commissioner Rankin urges in hi. report that more attention be paid to poultry and egg., which are a valuable source of revenue for the farmers. The re port, in part it a. follow. ! There has been an unusual amount ot rainfall, so much so that many farmers have been greatly hindered in their work. In many sections it has been too wet to plow, and weeds are growing very rapid. A great deal of ground was not ready for crops at planting time on account of so much rain. The largest acreage of corn has been planted in Kentucky that ha. been planted In year., with the possible exception of the cutting out of the 1908 tobacco crop. Last year's oat crop was a com plete failure, but the prospects this year are for a large yield and good crop. No trace, of rust have been reported so far. Last year's oat crop percentage wa. 68 per cent, r for this year 93 per cent. Average price of oats in the State Is 63 cents More alfalfa is being planted each year, and the crop is being bet ter understood than ever before. Farmere are experimenting and are learning that this is the best paying crop almost .that can be raised on the farm. The prospects for clover are bet ter at this time than ha. been for several year., although a little late. A great deal of alslke i. being grown. Crimson clover has not been a success in the State. There fore little attention has been given it. A large crop of tobacco has been planted this year than ever before, and its condition at this time is good though there has been too much wet weather, causing much neglect in Not so Many.

Formerly the parents were in the foreground of the picture t now these are relegated to the background, and her husband lakes the first place. For the marriage relation, we must remember, is superior even to Ihe filial 'relation in Ihe Scriptural view of the cas. In fact, wedding bonds are the most binding In which human oeings can be held.

Such cases undoubtedly occur sometimes, but they are exceptional, the rule being that the girl weds the man because she loves him and the further rule holding almost as generally, that through the trials and vicissitues of future life she continues to love him. This is the rule. NOTICE I have received from the State Treasurer the money due Jurors for the last May term of court.

It is the cordial, heartfelt welcome of a friend to our table and rooftree, without' counting the cost. The lady of the house in former times was true to her name as the dispenser of bread. There was al ways room at her table for an extra guest. The fare was plain er than it is today, but the welcome was cordial, the hospitality spon taneous. It is an advantage to see guest treated in this way. No social training can take the place of that which a child re ceives in the house of parents who delight to entertain their friends. Households, like individuals, become eccentric and narrow when kept too closely to their family group. For County Judge. JAWE: Gentle Protest.
