VERNON SIGNAL FRIDAY July 23 1909I Published every Friday by EDGAR S ALBRIGHT SUBSCRIPTION ONE YEAR IOOi Advertisingrates made known on application t MEMBER OF KENTUCKY PRESS ASSOCIATION THE whole country is now rejoicing over the fact that the new j tariff bill is about to become a law and end the uncertainty which has been so harmful to business for the past several months the bill as it passed the Senate affords but very little relief to the people The bill however has been very much improved in conference and affords a small measure of relief However this is one feature that deserves the greatest praise and that is the provision taxing the net income of corporations The credit tor this feature is due en tirely to President Taft whose honest and earnest en deavors to place a just share of the burdens of Government on the wealthy cannot be praised too highly The corporations areall as mad as hornets but they are beginning to realie that many people in this country while disliking the principles of Socialism increasing numbers of them are contending that it is better for the Govern ment of the United States to own E all property than for a few great corporations and individuals to own 95 per cent of the property and thus practically own the people by dictating the salaries that shall be paid and also dictating the prices that they must pay for the necessaries of life Corporations are beginning to take notice more than ever before well they may IN these days when the malodorous results of young American giris teaching Christianity and flirtation to Chinamen are filling columns of the daily press and hysterical preachers are work ing themselves into a frenzy in their efforts to collect funds for missionary work among the foreign heathen it is pleasant to read hat the women of Baltimore are de voting their surplus energies to a sane and humane puilanthropy The good women of the Monu mental City have formed an organization for the purpose of endowing a rest farm for wornout and overburdened horses They submit that there are numerous instances of poor people who require the services ofa horse to earn their living whose steed is apt especially in the hot weather to become incapacitated for work while its owner cannot afford to put it out of its misery witha humane bullet In many instances a few weeks complete rest tin the farm with an abundance of good paster shade and water would prove a God send to the animal and its owner and they argue that no better charity could be devised than such a rest farm for temporarily incapacitated horses Some of the promoters of this philanthropy also propose to receive horses that are completely worn out with a view to permitting them to end their davs on such a farm There is a pretty sentiment back of the mea but until the rest farm assumes such proportions that it can accomodate all the horses who need only recuperation we would question the advisabilitv of devoting space to those for whomHhere is no hope of recovery SMALL FARM FOR SALE I desire to sell privately my farm of 57 acres in Lincoln county seven miles from Stanford and two miles Maywood on good road U miles from pike in good neighbor

the National Corn Association and announces that the state will make an exhibit at the National Corn Exposition in Omaha Decem ber 6 to 18- Arrangements were made at a conference of Corn Association officials with Mr Rankin in Frankfort this week and it is ex pected Kentucky grain will take a high place and win many of the prizes in the list worth 50000 which is offered at the show in Omaha Mr Rankin has one hundred or more boys in Kentucky glowing corn from pure seed They will show this in an exhibit to be held at the Kentucky state fair grounds and then the best will go to the National show As is well known Kentucky stands high as a corn producing state when acreage is considered It is the hope or Mr Rankin and his coworkers to bring the average yield per acre up to among the best in the United States According to the friends of Post master General Hitchcock that official his intervened in Kentucky patronage disputes and as a result a complete understanding has been reached upon practically all of the major Federal offices in the State Senator Bradley and the three Kentucky Republican Representa tives decline to discuss the matter at this time but it is expected that within a few days a formal statement will be issued giving a full account of the matter It is understood that the Postmaster General has been acting as the direct representative of the Presi dent and the recommendations which will be made will be followed by the President in making ap pointments as the terms of officeholders expire OFFICES AGREED UPON The Covington Collectorship and the Louisville surveyorship were not taken up as the terms of the two officials do not expire for over two years The offices agreed upon are as follows Owensboro collectorship Lawson Reno Louis yule collectorship Ludlow Petty of Shelby villef Louisville marshal I ship George Long Danville collectorship L Cooper Marshal Eastern District A J Patrick District Attorney Eastern District Lawrence L Walker of Lancaster This only leaves to be disposed of the Louisville district attorneys ip DIVIDES THE PATRONAGE Postmaster General Hitchcock it understood has decided that Senator Bradley will name the District Attorney aud Representa tire Bennett the Collector A decision on both of the offices is expected to be reached this week Both District Attorney Du Relle and collector Roberts are certain to be ousted but nothing could be learned today of the men who are to succeed themWashington Special It will be seen from the above that Senator Bradley controls the Owensboro collectorsbip and the District Attorneys in Louisville and Covington Representative Edwards names the Eighthdistrict Collector Representative Langley the Eastern Marshal There are practically an agreement on the Louisville collectorship and marshalship the s administration being especially anxious to have Ludlow Petty taken care of It is also stated that the Louis ville postoffice was discussed but no agreement reached There is said to be an excellent chance for the retention of Robert E Woods who is a close friend of Mr Hitchcock FARM FOR SALE I desire to sell my farm of 500 acres located near Livingston on what is

of this Commandery has been an anusual event in London so far London Democrat The editor in the Signal ot July 16 was timelv and to the point To it may be added the fact which any one way know that cleanliness is next to godliness The health ofa town or any family in town or country depends largely on the cleanliness of streets premises and water supply Typhoid fever is known to be caused by germs of bacteria that exist and are propogated in im pure water and other substances that are filthy Every town should have a board of health and somt one competent to examine at intervals the brick yards barn yards and water closets in the corporated limits and report places where conditions are a menace to good health It should be the pride of citizens and merchants to have premises inspected and vie with each other as to the neatness cleanliness and sanitary condition of streets and front aud back yards The streets and sidewalks ofa town belong to everybody in town or out of town to use in walking riding or driving but for no other purposeIt therefore the duty of every citizen to not encumber streets or sidewalks with boxes benches steps or lumber or material ofany kind no longer than is absolutely necessary in building repairs etc Shade trees along the side walk are a comfort to the people living in town adding to the beauty and coolness so much needed in hot July and August weather But when they are used for hitching places lor teams when not in use they are used without right to parties so using them No reason havingIa rse store or residence for short time while attending to business but when a place is so used for days and weeks in wet weather or any kind of summer weather flies are drawn to the locality filth accumulates and thus may become a nuisance It should be th business of every citizen to be accojDodating and helpful to each other in keeping the sidewalks and the street in front of ones premises neat clean and attractive Again let us be neighborly friendly courteous in the matter of clean streets and sidewalks and sanitary back yards and water closets for the good will the good health and accommodation of all- July t609 J W V HIATT
