Theadvertiser changes the style and wording of his ad whenever he pleases and is there fore able in attractive cvaYs Ib acquaint the public with the character and variety of his goods and with the

project for improving a town or promoting its business and other interests should be considered on its merits Too often that is not done especially where the curse of factions exists Wl ere such a

scholarship Dont fail to read W J Sparks letter in this issue We sincerely hope it may be instrumental in producing the desired result Our business men are the ones who should be most interested in the construction ot the Mt Vernon Bromo pike but we regret to say that it seems they are the least and yet the merchants more than all other classes would be most benefited in the building of pikes Now is the one great opportunity for Mt Vernon and if we lose now we fear we have lost for mans years to come The farmers along the line have made up their part and now is Mt Vernon going to turn them down and say to them we do not propose to offer you am inducement to give us your trade or assist you in building roads that you may come to us with your business Fellow townsman it is out of the question for us not to do our part and even more and if we dont we will and ought to suffer the consequences Mt Vernon Ky Dec 1st 1909 Mr E S Albright Editor of MT VERNON SIGNAL Dear Sir Some time ago I authorized you to say that I would subscribe the sum of 25000 to the building of the turnpike which Mr Shutts and his neighbors have worked so lhard for At the time that I offered to make this subscription I thought that all the principal merchants ot Mt Vernon would at once recognize this as a great ad vantage to their business and would come lorw rd with liberal sub scriptions to this badly need im provement I understand from you that some of the largest mer chants at this place have declined or have tailed to help in anv way toward buildings this road I am not the judge of their affairs and it is possible that these people have the best of reasons for not helping in this work- I regret very much that under the above conditions Icannpt get my consent to pay any sum of money to this enterprise When such an opportunity is offered to us at Mt Vernon and these people t in the west end are so anxious to build a road that they may come to us with their business and help us build up our town I feel that wesliouldall pull together and help in every possible way and that all citizens of Mt Vernon should do whit they cau to build tins triad I want to see all come side by side in this work and when you can get all our people to agree that something shall be done I wllcome forward and renew my ubscriPtion but these big merchants must come to time heforeI will do anything Jii n

has rewarded the united efforts of the community for the upbuilding of the first graded school in the county Harmony steady advancement and prosperity have been ours in fulest measure We have a right

hearti ly agree with Mr taxpayer The lights and waterworks are needed in Mt Vernon very badly So whv not more of us get interested and go to work While I am weak fi nancially J can work and talk as much as anyone If the business men of Mt Vernon will make up their minds we can have improvements that will be worfh something to us As one of your town board I intend to put forth every effort to improve the streets and the gener al upbuilding of the town and I have the assurance of help to car ry out the work I want to see every dollar spent in the right place It depends largely on the way mon ey is distributed that adds to the improvement of things Why should the town drag back ward There are industrious people and people who want to be up in front why not make the begin ning at once for a general upbuild ing of the town Go after your lights and water and we as trustees will do the rest in the town limits I wish to see every street in town and all the sidewalks in accordance with specifications as fast as can be done I am aware of the fact it takes money to iniprpve yet a small amount of money well spent goes a long ways Please allow me to say one other thing The churches and Sunday schools are being given the least attention of anything in town while all of the lodge meetings are never forgotten and it dosent get too cold 6r wet for the members to attend Yet qurichurch houses are empty afnjds t every meeting day and the SndaySc1io ls also There are too many excuses People what kind of excuses are we going to put up Jo the Master None that will pass ofbourse1 I want

noteworthy development in the application of the wonder ful anesthetic stovaine Hiiheilo the drug had been con fiaed to operations below the waist its depressing influence upon the heart excluding ItS employ ment in operations involving the tipper part ot the body Now however it has been discovered that this disadvantage can beI overcome by employing niue lu combination with sUname and it was to demonstrate this that Prof Jonuetco in the presence of some forty Londou surgeons operated to remove a mass of tuberculous glauds from a mans neck He informed the surgeons that hi had used no general anesthetc ItJ any OpilallvU at the Bucharest Hospital in eighteen mouths having in that period performed more than 700 operations or various kinds under stovaine inject ionsIn the present case Prof Jonuesco inserted a hpyoderinic needle into the spinal cord between two of the vertebrae at the base of the neck and injected three centi grammes of slovatue aud five ecu tigrammes of sulphate of strychnine dissolfivd in water After a minute the patient was placed on the operating table and his head and shoulders were lowered ao that the humbling fluid might spread upward Two minutes later the operation was ried out in the ordinary man Tier No chloroform or other general anaesthetic was used The patient was perfectly conscious throughout and answered questions of the surgeons rationally Do you feel any pain asked oneNo replied the man cheerfully Are you quite comfortable he was asked Yes thank you he replied There was something uncanny to the onlookers to see thepatients udconcerned
