It vv 11 be noticed that in Mr.Bdlard's letter he admits that he accepted ,Sjo a year as salary and fails to deny that he accepted the amounts in excess of the salary as stated in my latter. Mr. Ballard has received as salary, in excess of what he promised to serve for. the rum of $1080.85. Fie admits that the County is $15,44 I7 in debt, the second E Zj saW "ifiTV charge made by me. And I forgot to state in my letter that this indebtedness is drawing interest, and 01 the known iudebtjdness the interest amounts per year o $020 O5. He also admits that the pauper claims under his administra '" MHHHtfVI tion amount, for three years, to f8.0o8.07 and gives no reason whatever for this enormous expenditure, but says, "I will leave that with the merchants of the county." Now, Mr. Ballard, you cannot put the blame for this extravagance on the merchants of the county, as no merchant furnishes any goods to the county without an order, and no merchant has the means of knowing the amount of orders that are given toother merchants. All the merchants of the county are taxpayers and as anxious to keep down the MV FRIENDS AM) FELLOW CITIZENS- :I am a candidate Urn the Bqnhfieaa Nomination fur expenses of the county as any other class of people.

Another charge admitted is his failure to keep his promise in regard to the telephone bills. Mr. Ballard insinuates that he has been paying for ray telephone. I deny this, and refer you to the Manager of the Mt. Vernon Telephone Co , who will verify my statement. Mot one cent of the amount paid out for telephone service by the county has been expanded for me. I have no 'phone in my office as sheriff, and will have no 'phoje in my office as Couuty Judge, at the exp.-nsof the people. Another charge admitted is that he has paid the RokI Fngi-neer- s $3,043. 27 of the people's money, when he promised to save them $2,000 on this office. Mr. Ballard admits that he foand $2,3n.03 in the treasury when he went in as county Judge, ibut undertakes to Lave the imores sion that there were outstanding warrants against this fund. The records show to the contrary. There was no out standing warrants against the county that should have been paid out of this surolus.

Wednesday evening a special program, consisting of music, readings, etc. was carried out at the court house and on 1st evening another spjciil show was given at Boone vVay in honor of the leachers. One of the special features of Wednesday's program, was the music by the Singing Class from Jobnetta under the direction of 'he Rev. George Childress The choir is composed largely Ol young boys and girls but they ran sing nevertheless and their visit Jo M.. Vernon was very much enjoyed and appreciated by Mt. Vernon people. We take the liberty in behalf of the town to say come again. The following is t! e list of those who d the choir: Soprano, Rev. hi'drss leader, Mieses Fbister (Jhasteen, Louvenia Ballenger, .

Possibly the most enjoyable session of the whole week was the one held yesterday morning which was properly termed" The live least." This consumed the Wilde of the forenoon and was engaged in by more than half the teachers and some fe.v visitors made short talks The theme was between the rural teacher and the teacher of the town schools and the country people inJ the town people. The talks were Interesting and we beleive that, that session of the Rockcastle County Teachers Institute will be the statting move for a stronger and better co operation between the town-peop- le and country people, the one thing Rockcastle needs ter the best interest of all concerned May we look forward to lDlb for another County Teachcvs Inst-tutthe equal if not better than the one just comiug to a close.
