The vote which Senator James, though virtually without opposl tiou, polled in Saturday's prim-ar- v is a striking demonstration of the HUM in which he is held by the Democrats of Kentucky Ollie M. James, like Joseph G. Cannon, and like many other public men of the present time of and a greater percentage American public men in earlier periods, sprang from unpreten tious stock in a provincial community. Ho came first to the capital of his State and later to the capital of his country with the enthusiasm for democratic ideals and the freedom from cynicism which so olten distin guihes the rural American and contradistinguishes him from the metropolitan whose surroundings have been less typically American; less racy of the soil and less remindful et the heroic circumstances of the making of America To Frankboy from fort the d the Gibraltar district brought which the perfect integrity When idealism possible makes years aftei ward, and in due course, he arrived in Washington, an "M.

In his earlier career the sprightly writers for the press found in Mr. James' physical proportions a theme for much humorous writing in the narrative forms and not a little frolicsome dis cussion in editorial columns, but as years passed it became recog nized generally and admitted tieely that the large Kentuckian was one of the considerable fac tors in Congress as well as one of the conspicuous figures physical ly. His capability and sincerity, for some time thoroughly established, have reflected credit upon his btate and his services have been valued highly by the most eminent members of his political party. President Wilson has iu various ways and upon sun dry occasions made plain his appreciation of Senator James' worth and bis present illness has been the cause of no little solicitude in the White House Ours is a period of many and heavy tasks for public servants; a ieriod in- - which the work of every capable and honest man is needed in public life and in priv ate life.

Washington, D. C, July 8. The task of horsing Uncle Sam's troopers is one of the problems of the day.

He realizes chat it is from the quick, active families of which the thoroughbred standard bred and Morgan are representatives, that the remount supply must be drawn. Col.

Every man in Germany is striving his utmost to win the war and the German farmer is doing his part by raising as much food as possible The only way for the Kentucky farmer to do his part in winning the war in by raising more food than the German farmer, and as wheat is the most important food the real test of strength between the American farmer and the German farmer will come this fall when the wheat is sown.
