county are almost inexhaustable and there is every reason why one should be prosperous Instead of our farmers having to import hay corn oats potatoes etc from other places they should be raising them to sell Much of our soiris adapted to the raising of cereals 1fl other parts are adapted to the raisfng of tobac co vegetables trui s of various kinds and more especially small fruits While the neople of ther states and even oi other sections of this state all fortunesIfrom strawberries and vineyards front exactly the same kind of soil we let it grow up in sedge grass and saw briers or remain uncleared not bringing in an income of perhaps fifty cents per acre There is 110 use for this state of affairs but on the contrary we should have vineyards dotting our farms from one side of the county to the other adorning our hill sides in the way that can only be done by the rich folliage and clusteringbunches of grapes ofwell kept vineyards besides filling our coffers with shekels In our sister county of Pulaski there is sometimes asI much as one hundred dollars clear ed on one acre of strawberries andI why cant we do it And why not some of our enterprising citizens start a canning factory that our farmers can have a market at home for tomatoes berries etc It will undoubtedly pay who are going to be the lucky men And we yet have an abundance of timber while a great deal has been con sumed in different ways We have a goodly number of sawmills plan ing mills and stone mills The water is also plentiful and that of a kind to please the Gods It quenches the thirst and heals the afflicted A greater variety of meneral water cannot be found in any other county in the state The scenery is be yond description the most skillful artist would lay down his brush and sffaiid amazed at the might works of nature Our mineral re sources are rich beyond computa tion We have any amount of the finest kind of building stone quar ies which are now being worked The limestone for lime ballast and building purposes is unexcelled and there is a sufficient quantity oft to last during the remainder of time The coal fields cover a con siderable portin of the eastern part of the county consisting of both bituminous and candle coal a great deal of which is aireaay accessible to the rail road and the principal part of the remainder will be as soon as a new line of road which is just about ready to begin building up Brush creek is completed The Louisville Nashville rail road already traverses the county from Lincoln county on the one side to Laurel county on the other the Kentucky Central practically traverses the county from Madison to Laurel and another line has been surveyed through the count frjbnr Garrard by way of Brodheaa and t Level Green to the Pulaski county line A bank which we have so long been in need of is soon to be established here and other im provements are going on but there room for the investment of thous ands of dollars to develop our un limited resources and we gladly welcome any and all who desire to come and investigate for themselves The half has not been told but this will suffice to give some idea of what is in store for us News Items

in this county of W O Bradley and John W Yerkes but he will go to the polls next November and vote against Yerkes or any other Republican who may be nominated for Governor He has quit the Republican party the TaylorDe boe brand of Republicanism in this State drove him out of itand not even the nomination ofa dear friend like Yerkes at tile instance of a dear friend like Bradley can take him back

officers David Pruitt of Winchester president A H Bastin of Lancaster vicepresident W W Longmoor of Frankfort treasurer James Maret of Mt Vernon Secre tary R V Bishop Cynthiana D L Pendleton Winchester and J M Baldwin Richmondwere elected members of the executive committee The objects of the association ae for the mutual protection and connection fall local telephone exchanges and toll line companies in Kentucky and en deavor to bring about a system of toil line connections with other states the question connecting all exchanges by metalic circuit without any phones being placed be tween was discussed and endorsed Arrangements were made to con nect the central and northern counties in the state by metalic circuits and this work will be car ried out this year The lines ot the independent companies will be pushed towards Louisville cincin- nati Portsmouth Kuoxville wad other large cities on or near the borders ot the state Uniform toll rates and n etalic circuits on all lines will be insisted upon and a mutual interchange of business will be made while the companies will still retain their present status of independence A Lincoln county man A H Aastin and a Garrard boy James Maret who played around Paint Lick depot way back in 69 when the big eclipse occured were the prime movers in originat ing this association the idea which they began working upon as far back as March 1898 when they only had a line from Stanford to Mt Vernon It was a hard fight to get other companies to see and under stand things as they saw them but after constant and untiring work of more than two years they have per fected an organization that will not only be a benefit to the citizens of the state but will redound to the interests of these two iudefatiguable workers and far sighted business men The companies now banded together are the wealthiest and most influential in the state and their combined capital amount to 500000 and much more is being added to the business daily all of which will tend to improve and ex tend the independent system in all Kentucky The United States Telephone Company of Cleveland Ohio that has thousands of miles of copper metalic circuit line run ning into the independent exchang es in Ohio West Virginia Pensyl vania Michigan and Indiana are ready and waiting for Kentucky connections which the association promises shall reach them by

every Friday by J t EDGAR s ALBRIGHT SUBSCRIPTION OtfE YEAR IOO ch RdverIzsnng rates viaSe known on i application r ANNOUNCEMENTS We arcs uithorized to announce the HON JAMES D BLACK of Barbourville as a candidate for Governor subject to any regular aeiiou of Democratic party A Hoosier friend sends us a clipping which is headed Fredrick 4r s Landis Letter in which the wri ler tribute that modest pays a high to gentleman who resides at Shan nondale Gby James A Mount We give due praise to this soldier and farmer because of his total dis regard of Constitutional law for thus by disregarding it and pro tecting the refugees of Old Kain tuck JI he casts odium upon his administration and helps the Democrats carry both Indiana and Ken tucky Sooner or later Taylof and Finley must appear before a bar of justice and meet their ac cusers and witnesses face to face they must stand trial before an honest court and an honest jury they must explain their actions Taylor said that it was a bad timing to kill a than but that it would have to be done This was just before Goebel was killed All sensible people know that he meant something in this saying The malitia was ready by his order and had been ready for an hour with ammunition and side arms to meet his emergencys call that the assassins of Gov Goebel might be protected Theywere protected l for three days by his order and the mountain hordes of despera does cutthroats rowdies intimi dators and assassins were brought Jto Frankfort to do this bloody deed and to commit this damnable tak offThe blood of William Goebel is upon the heads and hands of the leaders of the Republican party and they must bear this odium and Mount willnever be able to prevent these reufgees from answering these indictments He may protect them for a while but his party in Indiana like Taylor and Finleys ii Kentucky must suffer for his unlawful act The people of both states want nothing but justice but they demand that andwhen men are chargedwith crime whether guilty or innocent they must stand and face their accusers and this they will sooner or later foe forced to do The editors of the Kenfuckiana paper published at London Fake an unfair and an untruthful attack on our much beloved friend and public benefactor Hon James B McCreary in their last weeks is sue It is a pity that these 2x4 editors have reached this conclusion t in regard to Keutucks leading demociatt tiIcCraryf r thirty years has been aii honor to theJ state and nation filling everyposi tion he has ever heldwith excep tional credit to himself and consti tuency While Kentucky s chief Executive he won the main of model goveuuoiv Six times did the people of this district send him J N j 1c fC to congress and each day they could point to him with pride as a- representative each year he ad- vOcates on the Rtump and from his purse the principles of the demo cratic party He was the friend and champion of William J Bryan he helped to frame the last Kentucky Democratic Platfonn and was a close adviser and personal friend pf Goy William Goebel During all of his long service as a public servant he has been an honor to Kentucky and the people realizing that fact honored him again on yesterday by making him a dele gateatlarge from this state to the Kansas City convention He will be Deboes successor in the United State senate and will be a fit sue cessor to Clay Beck Carlisle and Lindsey The editors ot Kentuck ian should take a heavy dose of salts a good bath and get in a good humor quit attacking good men and able statesmen who have worked so hard for their own party and try hardei to publish a newsy local paper and thereby have three square meals a day and apple pie tor Sunday In the electoral college the vote ot Kentucky should be cast for the matchless Bryan of the West the the heroic champion of the peoples cause We must elect a democratic Governor ana the democratic candidate for Judge in the Seventh appellate district should win To do all of these we must act with prudence discretion and wisdom We must take in consideration the locality and the general fitness of the man in selecting our candidate for Governor because the success of Bryan and the Appellate Judge depend largely upon the selection ofour candidate for Governor The Hon James D Black is the man who can carry the state for Bryan can elect Judge Hazelrigg Judge Benton or Judge Sampson Appellate sameatime make himself Governor of this geat Commonwealth Black is the equal of Yerkes on the stump in fact he can strike him hip and thigh He is more eloquent than Yerkes he is more popular in eastern Kentucky than Yerkes he has as much wealth as Yerkes he is as clean and polished man as Yerkes he has done more for the democratic party than Yerkes has for the republican party To our minds he is the ideal candidate for Covernor Beckham whether he runs or dosent run for Governor has a cinch on the place to which he was originally intended by William Goebel Heshould be sat isfied and should not ask for the nomination next month from the hands of the Democrats f Make Black the nominee and Kentucky will go Democratic the electoral vote will be cast for Bryan and the Court of Appeals will remain democratic The renominatioii of Hon G G Gilbert at Harrodsburg the com Ini tee was a worthy tribute to our able representative whose recordwe are justly proud of And the people of this district will see to it by their votes that he will be re turned to that seat he has filled so acceptablyfor the last two years He deserves it and should liaveit 1

hoing a new sort of corn which I had received from Brazil and planted in a very rich bottom highly fertilized I could al most see the corn growing so when we started for dinner I set a tenfoot pole by a finehill in order to see how much it would grow in the two hours the boys would be absent and by jing what do you think the corn had tasseled and silked and there was some short blades anda right
