Only last week Elbert H. Gary, chairman of the United States Steel Corporation, in a statement dealing in detail with prevailing prosperous conditions in the iron and steel industry and the war in application to ecoits world-wid- e nomic affairs, predicted an early ending of the war and drew the conclusion that "we ought to stop, ponder, reason. We shall be all the better for it. Legitimate en terprise and progress will be benefitted if we read all the signs, consider the past and reflect upon Our store is small and we must make room for our spring line, hence these special bargains for January Special Sale Price on Ladies' and Extra Special Sale of M.en's &, Boy's Misses' - and Underwear Underwear Ladies'- Drawers 25c valut 1 8c Men's Fleece Lined extra heavy Suits, gook $1.50 valud K Ladies' Union Suits, spec'l 55c value 45c Misses' Union Suits, 45c Men's Union Suits, $J.OO value 80c ce - 2-pi- ece , PROTECT THE FUTURE. WHAT AILS THE BOY? Great Reduction in Dress and Apron Boy!s Union Suits, 50c value 39c the future.' Such admonitions are timely. The country has advanced to Its present state of prosperity not on ly under the influences of just such warnings every once in a while, but under the influence of acute international complications from time to time and a host of other developments, which ordi narily would have been regarded as almost insurmountable to busi ness progress, inereiore, our prosperity is not as a house built upon the sand, susceptible to every ill wind that blows. The experience of this country since the outbreak of the war has brought us to a realization of our wonderful resources. We are vastly richer than we ever dreamed of; we have proven that we can adapt ourselves to new conditions in a shorter period of time than had ever been thought possible; all told, we have been impressed by the folly of getting panicky, and the futility of prophecy. We would still be in the slough of despondency if predictions made at the begiunlng of the war had come true. Opinions as to how long the war will last are worthless except for the steadying influence they .may exert on general conditions. The past year saw a widening of the field pt hostilities and the involvement of additional nations. The war may last a year longer and again It may go on for years. But we'know that we are making strides as a World Power as wnll as in our domestic affairsand that our horoscope is promising, be the war long or short. We are establishing not only close trade relations with our ueighbors to the south, but a feeling of brotberli-nesa disposition to stand together against foes. We have the capital to help them and soon we shall be making all the thiugsthey have been buying from the na tions at war and we shall be tak s If the average father who wonders There is only one way in which Kentucky can protect herself in the future why his boy hates to go to school, tobacco-bewould pay a visit to that self same from "possum-hunting,scrapings and other acts of lawlessness. school, he would understand perfectly.

Slowly she arose, walked into an adjoining oom, and looked at the rosy fat cheeks of her brood of youngsters who were dreaming of the glorious morrow.

Putting his hand under the woman's ehln he lifted her face to look deep into her eyes before he said: "Semething's worryin' you. What is It?

WHAT OF THE NEW YEAR? As clanging bells send their glad message of the birth of a Happy New Year out upon the cold crisp air, it is always well to take stock of one's self. The Kentucky farmer has many things for which he may be duly thankful as the Old Year dies. Bountiful crops back to the little rural school. This school is about the only thing with which the farmer and his family come in contact, that is not a part of the present century. It is the one thing fcr which neither he nor his family can give thanks this Happy New Year. Every farmer should realize as the New Year is ushered in with the sound of bells on the fresh night air, that soaring land values, bumper crops and snug bank accounts do not make a community, a great State or a Strong Nation. If a small percentage of the bountiful crops, the snug bank accounts and the soaring land values, were carefully invested in real schools 16 int $5.00 per 1000 pieces 2lx 3t 16 in long, $13.00 per 1000 pieces 3 x 31-- 16 in. long, $16.00 per 1000 pieces Timber must be clear of all defects.
