pandering to riches a servile worship of suobauracy a putting ol the forehead to the ground when the money moloch passes down tlw street does more to stir up the devil in a man than all else com bined This sort of man worship may go all right in countries where one man is acknowledged to be bet ter than another but It will never go in this land of the free and the home of the brave and the sooner the big papers let up on these daily flouting of money in the faces of decent people the quicker all sorts of devilishaess will cease to be a menace to our government IK some day the newspaper man should print the contents of his waste basket there would probably be ft riot There would certainly jrouble in many homes arrests IB some direction shot guns in others trouble all around But the patron never sees the waste basket He only glances at the beautifully printed pages com plains if one letter in fifty is up side down growls his disappointment if one name in five hundred has happened to go wrong kicks because his communication signed TaxPayer has been condensed into respectable English frowns because the editor didnt take his adviceabout publicly warning his neighbor against throwing more melon in the alley and is generally disgruntled not so much at what he fails to find He knows his share of the waste basket but if he could have one look at the contri butions made to that receptacle by bis neighbors and friends he would thank God for the existence of a man with sufficient intelligence and courage not to print all lie knows and to temper even tiut which he does

the newspapers to continually note the improvements they make by giving them free puffs and for which they never pay a cent It is high time for all class es to learn that a newspaper is a business enterprise the same as a dry goods store or a grocery run for a living for its owner YOUNG man let us give you the benefit of our observation We have noticed that at leaat nine tenths of the young men who have been before the court for misde meanorv are those who take no interest whatever in education seldom read a newspaper and ate al ways ready to make fun of other young men who use correct lan guage and try to be somebody It comes natural to them to discourage the studious and ambitious young men of their acquaintance Their minds run toward dirty stor ies midnight sprees and bad company This in a short time means trouble a sheriffs invitation to at tend court and a fine or term in jail POLITICS AND POLITICIAN Secretary Taft delivered an ad dress at Columbus 0 Monday which is regarded as the opening gun of his presidential campaign The largest part of his speech was devoted to the railway rate question and the trusts He strongly indorsed the policies of President RooseveltA special contains this bit of political informatioi That Richard Ernst chairman of State Republican Campaign Committee and otherwise leader oi the party in Northern Kentucky is no longer a secret in Campbel

theCampaign and Advisory Corn mil tees it was decided to open the campaign this fall at Lexington ot Saturday August 31 St or hardlj two weeks after the Republican campaign has been started at Mays yule Lexington was first suggest ed by Judge S W Hager the can didate for Governor and was easily the choice of the other candidates who felt that his desire as the head of the ticket should be paramount to other considerations Several suggested that it might be well to infuse the vigor cf the opening ol the fight in Western Kel ucky sc as to arouse the big Democratic votethe only trouble therebut the accessibility and convenience and the enthusiasm always maui fested by the Democrats of Lexington and its vicinity on such occa sions easily convinced the candi dates and other leaders tbatit is the right place It is expected that the opening will be held in the day time arrangements will be left to the local Democarts Immediately following the opening Judge hager will begin a speaking tour ot theX mountain section of the State while Governor Beckham will go right to Western Kentucky speaking the following Monday at Paducah Speaking will also be put on the stump in every

never witnessed a bal loon race For some time contests of this kind have been quite a fad among fhe European aristocracy At one or two points in the north in this country they have been successfully carried on but for the first time In the south a balloon race will be conducted at the Kentucky State Fair to be held in Louisville September 16 to 21 Con structed especially ToP racing purposes and each in charge of a competent op erator this feature of the big amusement program of the Kentucky State Fair can not help but prove a great attractionThe pons to be used during the week of September 16th at Louisville are exactly the same size They will be released simultaneously and will ascend to a height that takes them into an air current when the race will begin Ballasts of sand and the skill of the operator will decide the contest For a time the balloons will naturally be neck and neck as it were then the operator who is most familiar with air currents and the ma nipulation of the ballasts will succeed In forging ahead of his opponent- At any rate the race should prove as exciting as a speed contest on Mother Earth NOTHING BUT THE BEST Kentucky State Fair Contracts For Only
