Do they mean to say that you can not vote as you please ? I believe that this county belongs to the people of Rockcastle county and they have a right and will vote as they please and will not be guided, by no party, or a few men. Why do they say it would be unpatriotic to vote except as they say ? This is a free country and the good people of Rockcastle are not going to be dictated to by no party or Basses" to tell them how to vote but are going to vote as they please.

The boy's father had enlisted in the Spanish War and wan killed fighting under The Lawton in the Philippines. boy's mother was an intelligent American woman one of those women who believe that honor Is the finest thing in the world. With the worship of her husband's patriotism and bravery in her soul, the mother had brought the boy up to be a straight thinking, straight acting youngster. I had watched the boy grow up, and I was proud of him. When war was declared It did not take the boy long to make up his mind that he ought to enlist, and his mother agreed with hiru. It wri a perfectly natural decision for him to make. The training that he had received from his mother, and his pride in his father's devotion to the country, made any other course seem pitifully weak to the boy. and, besides, he had a keen appreciation of the Justice of the cause for which the United States is fighting. He did not ask for advice as to himself. He was ptrfectly clear about what he should do. But he was disturbed about his mother. Was he doing right to leave her?

To A Ail FSslsssl Fossa1 C, What Our Country Is Fighting For There is a story of singular bt auty concerning a young French officer who. in answer to the question, "V.'hat are you fighting for?" stooped quickly, tore a piece of sod from the earth, pressed it to his lips, and exclaimed, "For France, France!" Commenting upon thi incident the New York Evening Sun says: Frauee Is literally fighting for her life. If the enemy were American soil, if American cities had been sacked, rWocched inmen had died by the thousands, if American women Sa2lben put to shame unspeakable, the passion of tiiotic love anA yearning so touchingly expressed by the French oiJcer who kisMKl the handful of sod would have its counterpart in the breasts of Americans. miles frees Paris, while are still only sixty-fvTto ahaee thousand miles of sea separate- sj ;rom them and cools the ardor of many. Yet in that sea lie the bodies of the Lusltania's dead. The sea. If German victory in France is made complete, will boar to our shores the same crew that enslaved and outraged BelgHna. American young men will soon be lying beside the Frenchmen and Englishmen who have given "the last full measure of devotion" to the cause of human liberty. Let ue see it with our mind's eye and feel it in our hearts. Let us, too, seize the soil of our oountry as a precious thing and hold it to our lips and our breasts. Our country, too. is fighting for national existence. Our gallant troops are crossing those three thousand miles of sea to make sure that "the crew that enslaved and outraged Belgium" is made powerless to visit a similar fate on our beloved land.

Among other eaiurs which have endorsed this action editorially is the Frankfort State Jouuui, whicu recently published the following editorial: "Amend The Constitution "The action of the Chamber of Corn, merce, in pledging its efforts to the adoption of the Constitutional Amendment relating to the purchase of telephone lines, and in calling upon other commercial bodies to support it, is both wise and timely. "Two telephone lines in the 'same community, each contending for subscribers, is a nuisance an expensive nuisance to the public, and baa been too long tolerated. When the busy merchant, farmer or professional man takes up his telephone, be wants to talk and talk quickly; and to be told that the party sought has "the other line" naturally stirs his resentment Two exchanges in the same town mean that the business and professional nsn siUPt n:aintain both, and this he should not be required to do. "Telephone service should be unives-sa-l auio.i telephone users; every telephone user should be asle to reach every other telephone user, over his own phone. The present Constitution of Kentucky was written when the telephone business was in its early infancy, and in it was written that one telephone company could not acquire by lease or purchase, the lines of a competing company, with the result that in every municipality where there have existed two telephone systems, howsoever much a Chamber of Commerce or a City Council wished to have only one, they could get rid of neither without wrecking one. Both lines were doomed to continuous existence, in spite of the fact that generally neither was prosperous, or giving to the public satisfactory service State authorities sr.d local councils ave complete power of regulation of telephone companies. "The General Assembly adopted the Iendlng amendment to the Constitution, permitting one telephone com pany to purchase the lines of anoth r, p: vidoi h City Council and thi 3tate nethoriUea should approve tk ihrch e; without that approval purchase can be made. Thus amen nient was passed by the Houe of Rep resentatives without a dissenting votv ; nd by the Senate with only one aega tlve vote. Such a vote Is an of the interest in th amendment and the demand for t!' relief It will bring. The public intc. is fully protected.

Submission Passed By General Assembly With Only One Dissenting Vote History Of Competition BRING US YOUR PRODUCE. Come In and let us get better acquainted. What the Pledge Mean. It is wise, we think, to say a few words in regard to the pledge. It means no more and no less than it reads. It will be observed that signers of the pledge are not asked to bind themselves to any particular things. They are not asked at this time to promise to observe meatless days or to abstain from using any particular kind of food. They simply agree to carry out the directions and advice of the Food Administrator 'insofar as their circumstances permit." We are aware that conditions differ in different homes; that what la only a sacrifice to one may, under unusual circumstances, be an impossibility to another. Therefore the qualifying clause "insofar as my circumstances permit " appears in the pledge. This qualifying clause brings the execution of the Food Administrator's advice down to the individual conscience of the hcuekeeper who signs the pledge. It is not expeeted that bc.tuse of this qualincation the pledge will go as nothing. It is, in Tsct, ovx hope and belief that tnose who s'gn this pledge will consider tkaanseltca units ia a great army of Amcricii:i housekeepers who propose to e:re their country and thoin- may ke paaaihla the dlraetloaa and advice alvac by toUowiag x cloaaljr of tke Food Adruinhttrstsr, knewi as we 0.0 that those directions will on fOING SOUTH leave the Louisville & Mobile, it is Impossible Railroad, after rou Nashville to escape the infection of joyu liring. even, if ywu wanted to do that.
