human nature to look out for hunjber one awl probably in no feature of existence is this theory more earnestly applied than to affairs involv ing financial considerations In the matter of trading how ever people are oftentimes deceived into buying goods in large cities to the detriment of their own town when as a matter of fact they could not only actually get cheaper prices at home but would also by patronizing their local merchants assist in holding the money Circulation in their community up to a higher standard This is particularly the case with people within the natur al trading radius of Richmond A little inspection and com parison of prices will convince any buyerthat our merchants actually undersell Lexington houses in many staple lines and a buyer must indeed fastidiously inclined who cannot be suited from the really metropolitan stocks now carried in Richmond The Madison county buyer should also keep sight of the important fact that a dollar thrown into home channels of trade is liable to be whirled back to him while such chances are at best remote when he spends his money in Lexington or Cincinnati- PATRONIZE YOUR HOME MERCHANTS They will deal fairly by you and have a far greater in terest in your welfare and that of the community at large than any outside dealer can have It is the home merchant who advertises your town and county and increases the value of your property and to whom all classes look for assistance in the many little enterprises which go to make life enjoyable as well as the larger ones which furnish employ ment and draw in money from abroad Your home mer chants are the main bulwark of the town They are entitled to your undivided support and your goodwill You can best look out for number one by patronizing the men whose aims and objects are identical with your ownI Hume Cooperage Co Incorporated An industry which has a di rect bearing on the progress of Richmond since it gives employment steadily to a large force of workmen is the Hume Cooperage Company one of the largest concerns of its kind in Kentucky The plant comprises a thoroughsyste matic and convenient arrangement of buildings equipped with all modern appliances in the

witha side track is extended from the main line of the L N and L A Railroads direct into the yards thereby facilitating shipments The process of manufacturing is such that from the time the timber is cut in the mountains until the finished product is stored in the warehouse it has pass ed through many hands con sequently the number of men employed by the flume Coop erage Company is quite large Having been cut to proper length and thickness the staves are placed in a drying kiln there to remain for a period of 20 days and being thoroughly seasoned are pass ed to thestavejointersthence to the

Mackajv talking on A Ilea for Christian Unity expressed the belief that this goal can be reached only along the line of interdenominational cooperation It is a dream he said that all Christendom can be made one in reed doctrine antI ceremonial The former plan however he considers feasible anti he presented in his ser mon a bais on which he thought it could be accomplished- At no time has there been such a yearning for a united Christendom as today The reformation of the Twen tieth Centuryif we live to see it will be based on the sanctification of rollcctiveism and one of its dominant features will be unity of churches First of all we must do away with the competition between churches Tf there is anything destructive to spir itual life it is such competition It removes the central

other even ing on the okapi a new mammal dis covered in Central Africa Sir Harry Johnston drew attention to the absence of secondary hoofs and anything like a horn and also to the curious fact that the canine teeth in the lower jaw bifoiinte the giraffe being the only Other known animal to have this peculiarity The extinct hel ladotherium with which the okapi was originally compared differed too much to justify placing them in the same genus though doubtless they were nearly related It was scarcely possible to decide whether the okapi was primitive in be- Ing hornless or whether its ancestors had horns and had lost them Per sonally he thought the okapi never had horns Siiglit Feel Woree If They Did The New York doctor whom tho vivisectionists refuse to vivisect as it were feels awfully cut

tbe result of local or general diturb mince of blood that to excite the nerves causes the muscles to contract and compress tho venous flow pf blood to the heart and that the bonea could be used as levers to relieve the pressure of nerves veins and arteries In other words Osteopathy is the science or art of healing disease without the aid of drugs by correcting slight anatomical derangements of the bOIlanti remov ing obstructions to the physiological action of the different body organisms Dr Tindolph has made a thorough and complete study of tills science and has demonstrated in his practice
