that if I should hint to you that I WitS going to describe the geology of our county in any detail how Lquicly3ouwouIddropt4iis pap j erand cry crankBut let Ime issue you right now that 1 siaU only mention two or three g l youlILbavea i hem you will find them veryt 4simpleand easy to comprehend t i yet Wjl realize that they are ian ftf vital Importance to the ques tion of good roads and roads that will last I shall make this statement of our geology very simple and exposedir bind red aud sixty feet of rock At the top there are seventy feet of rock TbeNiagara Pfriodof tb tipper Silurian and tne rest are included in The Trenton period othe Ectrer Silurian It other words in trafeling from the top oftbehUIsatJredericks birg to the Chaplin river in the northern part orthe county you pass over our seven hundred and sixty feet of rock layers The top of the Frtdericksburg bills are geologically seven hundred aid sixty feet higher than the bed of the Chaplin These seveny feet of Niagara rocks at the top of the series are a heavy compact magnisian limestone called dolomite which has a crushing resistance of twelve hundred pounds to the inch and stand exposure to the weather and to the wear and tear of heavy loads as uo car bonate of lime will do All the rest of the reck in the countyare of carbonate of lime and slate and all very poor road making material The very best carbonate of lime rock only has a crushing resistance of six hundred pounds to the inch Furthermore it disintigrates very rapidly under the action of weatherWe beautiful dressing you remember of crushed rock covered with screening on our Man Street last fan In three months the screening was all dust and whdn they fall rams came the street was a loblolly of mud the rock was worn oui and gone t I If buch a dressing of dolomite had been spread we would haVe IImudJess mindlletlI practical this whole subject is Lee our County Judge and our Magistrates take an auoxobile and go to Bardatown bud Jo k around The first thing you will notice when you ner Bard town will be those great cliffs of dolomite which underlie that city acd that part of Nelson cpdnty Now take the Louisi ville pike and rde for fourteen miles oVer a smooth hard roadI which is the automobile drivers delight Not a rut not a gully Then come back to Bardstjwn land take the Bloomfield pike Tills also will be found to beI even better than the other until about half way to Bloomfield then good by good road II Tha Niagara dolomite runs out atj this point and you drop down onto the Hudson River urn stone the difference in the charac land of the road is so striking it will be noiceable to anyI one Tne Bloomfield end ofthe road will have to have costly repairs every year to keep itin lerable condition while the Bardstownt end once in good re pair will bold it for years Now to tbe practical part bf this paper As I have told you there is an iuexbaustable suppy eff this valuable road milling material This doomite on the hills arourd Vrederickstoyvu and Manton and the fcsouthwts ern corner of our county There are also spltndid quarries ot it on top of the ridge between Croaks and Woodiawn in the edge of Nelson county Toe L N R R cuts through great massive layers of this rock just beyond the top of the hill My suggestion then is that rick crushers be placed at these two points and thecrushed rock haued inj car IQa1srram the Woodlawn plant to Springfield and distributed by wagons from here on all pikes as far out as say five miles from town This will give us good firm roads that iwill stand all the hauling from every part of the county that will come over it That crushed at or near Fred ickstown can be hauled immedi ately to the Bardstown pike and make suqh a read of it as our Nelson county neighbirs have These roads are used by peq pe from everv part of the coun ty Your tobacqo has to come to market and your county court with all your county business is transacted hercj and in fact alt of you have frequent occasion for coming tto Springfield and would all be glad of a good road to come over But this scheme does not by i any means contemplate disregard ing or overlooking the roads in the rest of the county On the contrary the traking of these min thoroughfares more per manent and durable will leave more money fur keeping iq re pair those roads which are less favored with the best material and consequently need more Ire quent repair By the use of a big autompbile truck this crushed dot mite could probably be distributed economically for a distan e Of ten miles or more from the depot here at towu We mUss avail ourselves ofsuchuiodern neth ods if we would havegoodoica and we must have good roads Tbese suggestions are offered for what they are worth I trust tlat officials will give tberp such consideration as they d seive and no more On th m js the burden of trying to spend your mone to your best advantage 1 they get any ideas from ltils paper that will prove of value to them then I am repaid for the slight labor of submitting itI IA word conclusion in regard to this magnisian limestones this dolomite It is found in what our geologists call The Niagra Period because there Iso such aI splendid display of it in the bluffs and cliffs and ledges at the Niagara Falls It is over its massive ledges that the waters of that great river have poured makingthemostl beautiful and the most awe in spiring visions ih it the eye of man has ever beheld Wherever these Niagara locks are found they arc massive and durable The most picturesque portion of the Alps is the part caled the dolomites Here are solid per pendicular wais Of this Niagara rock towering thousands of feetI into the skies capped by peaks of surpassing grandeur and beauty Some of the finest roads in the world are those built by the wonderful Naboleon over these same dolomite alpine ridges and through these do omiie passes In fac tne dolomites are the pride of the Tyrohan Alps WI R HAY M U Notice We have

for relief Is now undoubtedly the largest In the world Nearly fifty thousand people entirely destitute wait in the bread lines every day and over sIxI thousand gallons of soup and four thousand kilograms of bread are dally distributed to them UnUke the bread lines I have seen In America says a report from one of the representatives In Brussels these are all people of one nationality and all with a common and undeserved misfortune They are of all classes but we know none of them save by number because fco matter what their station or the extent of their misfor tune they still have lamour propre and many of them If they were com pelled to write their names on coupons when they get the soup would rather starve than take it None of them think that they will always have to be in the bread lines and every one of them feels that when It is all over they will want to forget that they have been destitute The soup for these pitiful flotsam and Jetsam of war is all prepared In the large storehouses df the Interna tional Express Company Van Gand More than one hundred people are gaged In this work Among them are former chefs of some of the leading hotels of Brussels who give direction as to the kind and quality of the soup its ingredients and their proportions Under them are those who clean the vegetables potatoes parrots beans etcand prepare the meat This en tire staff Is composed of volunteers except the chefs who receive at the most half a dollar a day From three oclock In the morning when the cooking of the first 5000 gal Ions of soup is started the scene in the circuslike storehouse of the press company Is one of tremendous activity with the moving figures of the hundred whiteclad chefs the fires ablaze under scores of Immense cauldron dimly seen through the sift ing clouds of pungent steam rising from the boiling soup When the soup is cooked It is sent under the seals of the commission and under the protection of the American flag In large lorries to the twentyone canteens scattered all over Brussels These canteens were formerly schools dance halls Turkish baths etc Dur ing the morning wherever one goes comIIJigder their arms Mournful Industry One French industry that has grown apace since the beginning of August Is the making of those funeral wreaths with which the cemeteries in France are always so primly decorated Many a soldiers grave is marked today only by a cross and a cheap little tricolor waving gloriously in the transient sun shine but there is a big demand among those who may bring their lost ones nearer home to rest for the con ventional mourning wreaths The shop windows are filled with these things and with promises that orders will be instantly fulfilled at the workshops One imagines that the very finicky work must keep a large number of girls employed for all those elaborate ly twisted designs of flowers and foil age are made of wire strung with the tiniest of beads and enormous quantities must be used for every wreath The designs do not seem to have varied The favorite Is still the wreath of heartsease worked out in melancholy livid shades of purple blue and graygreen but the words in running script across the design are Mort popr la PaIne Real PossUm Hollow Discovered That Possum Hollow Is an actual place and not a handy name for ftc tlonista Is proved by the Putnam Coun ty Journals country

IHow Human Life May Se Long Extended Jt Professor Metcbnikoff Is again discoursing on beneficent bacilli Their Introduction Into the system to destroy pernjclous microbes will post pone old age Indefinitely he main tains with the reiult that no man need take a vacation to recuperate lost vitality Metchnikoff at seventy works all the time with undiminished zest The fountain of youth which Ponce de Leon sought In 1513 in Flor Ida he could have found at home In sour milk and natural sugar For his yearn the Russian scientist is amazingly vigorous He has been getting back and keeping his youth for 17 years In a recent Interview Metchnlkoff seems to have said noth ing about exercise as an aid to health His aim has been to prevent contaml nation of the blood by intestinal pot sons which clog the human machinery by contact as they pread to organs and arteries Presumably Metchnikoff takes the air regularly but science interests him much more than sport Perhaps Itcan be inferred that he does not think the usual forms of exercise necessary if a proper microbe diet is agents Metchnikoff finds In the sugar of dates as well as in the lactic acid of prepared milk He eats nothing that is not cooked even his fruit must be stowed The sour milk he takes at his first breakfast which consists of vegetable bouillon and weak tea besides the draft of bacilli At lunch and dinner he eats a little meat free of vegetables and always compote of fruit While other scientists of his age who do not fol low his system falter at their work In the laboratory Professor Metchnl koff knows no fatigue finishing each day fresh and full of enthusiasm Yet be comes of a shortlived family He insists that his physical condition proves beyond challenge that the theory of beneficent bacilli Is sound Some of the physical culturists reach the same result by a system of bone twisting muscle stretching and flushing the colon One pf them San ford Bennett a wellknown business man of San Fraqclsco is more vigorous and nimble at seventytwo than Professor Metchnikoff is at seventy Mr Bennett who eats what he pleases holds the same theory of the debili tating and wasting effects of intes tinal poisoning but knowingly he does not consume certain kinds of bacilli to kill others While a successful ex perlmenter on himselfhe is not a eel entist At fifty Bennett was a bilious and tiredout business man rapidly growing old Today he has a fresh complexion sleeps soundly moves about like a healthy man of forty anr can go through a days bird shootlm in the woods without fatigue Assum- Ing that Professor Metchnikoff is rlgh when he says that the battle of baclll in the human system can be decided ir favor of the invaders Introduced It natural sugar and sour milk it might be worth while

Sam Wilson The boxes of provisions were stamped E A U 8 the first two ing the initials of Elbert Anderson and the last two the usual abbreviation for United States When one of the men engaged in the work of trans ferring the boxes was asked one day what the letters stood for he replied jokingly that they stood for Elbert Anderson and Uncle Sam meaning Wilson IThe remark caught on and after being
