TO THE CITIZENS OF ROCKCASTLE COUNTY: Four ears ago. as yon remember, I became a candidate for I won the rae for Sheriff under the usual difficulties. I wa poor, misrepresented, maligned aod known to only a small section of the County. This makes me the more appreciative and grateful. I thank the good people of the County for what they did for me, and feeling this way about it, I have used every opportuni ty to show my appreciation and gratitude. While I have been your Sheriff I have mistreated no one. I have discharged my duties as best I could so as to deal kindly, con siderately and justly with every one; being as lenient as I could about taxes, collections, execution, ect ; holding up in many instances til moment to keep from pressing. Yet I have man the last aged my business in such a way as always to be able to make my settlements with the State, County and individual in due time, and .have my reciepts and quietusus on file. Wnat little income I have e'erived from the office, vou know the public his also to an extent shared with me. When disturbance and dangers have been reported to me, though from the remotest parts of the county, I have gone myself and not stayed back and sent a deputy. I have spe-J- t somewhat of my own money and time not required of me, and have tried to catch the violators of the law of the county; on one occasion making a ten days trip in the mountain counties of Kentucky, trying to catch a mu.rderer who committed one of the worst crimes in the history of our comity. For some time I hwe been constantly encouraged and uiged to enter this race for County Judge by people from all sections of the county, who pledged me their support, to such an extent that I have btlieved 1 could easily win. Many persons who for some reason die' n t or could not vote for me before, tell mi that they are anxiou.s for an opportunity to vote for me now. Therefore I hereby appeal to the Republicans and my friends of Rockcastle County to support me for the Republican nomination ter the office of County Judge. Since you have tried me for three years as Sheriff and kno me as you do and ate giving me such splendid encouragement, it makes feel grateful o you indeed and I want to say again that I am ffnl to you for what you have done for me in the past, and will as ihankfui' and appreciative for anything you may do for me future Siui-- I have been Sheriff I have made it a point to uainted witn you and have you get acquainted with me.

Is Work Too Hard? It is a mistake to keep a stallion idle during the fall and winter. Though this is often done there is no INHO why he should not be worked like any other horse. If this is not possible he should at least be given the opportunity of taking a reasonable amount of exercise. Also the feed should be about the same as that of other horses. Feed about one pound of good hay for every 100 pounds of weight and in addition to this, give enougli grain, equal parts of corn, bran and oats, to keep the animal in good flesh, but not too fat. If this b; done he will be more efficient during the breeding season than would be the case were he kept in breeding condition all through the year.

It is only when the natural food of the rabbits is cut off by being covered with snow that this destructive little animal is forced to resort to gnawing the bark from fruit trees. The proper stage of maturity at which it is best to take the fruit from the tree, if for sale, will be governed somewhat by the distance to the market to be supplied. If near by, and no shipping, the fruit may be left on the tree until nearly mellow But if to be shipped a long distance, it should be picked as soon as the seeds are fully matured.

Both currants and gooseberries produce their fruit on canes that are at least two years old, the first season being generally utilized for the growing of the canes, the second for the formation of fruit buds or spurs, and the third, a full crop may b expected. These canes will bear for two and even three years, but e&ch year after the third, they begin to show a decided decline the fruit becomes In order smaller and less valuable. to keep the production up to the standard, the bush should be placed on the rotation basis, that is, each year a few new strong shoots should be permitted to grow. All the rest shonld be cut out, and also ettch spring a like number of the oldest canes should be removed. In other words, we should grow the same number of new canes that we take out in old canes. In this way we eliminate the old and exhausted canes and keep the bushes in strong, vigorous growth. Further, as the season progresses, all shoots beyond those that we wish to use for fruiting later on should be removed and not permitted to utilize the food supply that should go to the fruiting canes.

The proposed changes in the tax laws, denuded of legal phraseology, may be explained as follows: Property will be classified and the taxation of each class so levied as to secure a fair assessment and put a stop to hiding and evasion. Assessments will be equalized: not by counties, but according to individual ownership, and put an end to the practice of forcing the honest taxpayer to pay the taxes of his less scrupulous neighbor.

Mortgages running over three years will pay a registration tax in addition, to catch the longtime loans of foreign corporations, who would otherwise escape taxation. Farming implements and manufacturing machinery, raw material and products in course of manufacture, will be taxed for state purposes only.

Corporations will be taxed the same as individuals on the same classes of property owned, and, in addition, on their franchises based en their published statements, whereas the property of individuals is merely "estimated" by assessors.
