Every Qimax Reader When a man or woman be comes perfect in their work arid makes no errors or mis takes their place is in heaven not on earth In a big Industrial Edition such as the Climax has just

eighty columns nine thousand four hundred and forty lines of type sixtylhree thousand and eighty wcrds and about two million two hundred and seven thousand eight hundred separately formed letters you will agree with us that the errors are astonishingly few any fair minded person will concede this fact- We contend without fear of contradiction that it is the best Industrial Edition ever published in Central Kentucky for critics have told us so Of the few errors we feel as badly as the persons whose articles they appeared in do tn the State Bank Trust Co we say the capital is 15 000 It should be 150000 To those living here the error is apparent at a glance To those away from here a pe rusal of the article and the splendid showing of the bank will convince them that the capital as printed is wrong Toward the close of the Madison National Bank ar tide the word Richmond in stead of Madison jsused As there is no Richmond Na tional Bank any reader will understnd that iflisa typo graphical

the opinion of The Climax but the forerunner of a complete and uptodate sewerage system which will extend to nil parts of the city instead of only a small section It is needless to dwell upon the necessity of such things All right thinking per sons will not argue fora moment against it and the wonder is that with the open sewerage as we have it in a large per cent Richmond has escaped the wors forms of epidemics Other cities noi as large and prosperous as Richmond have things along this line in the most modern and sanitary condition and it is to bo regretted that we are so far behind others in regard to matters of health purity and cleanliness The Mayor and City Council deserve and will receive the nearly endorsement of a largo imm her of citizens for the construction of this line and wo hope the city authorit its will be in a position in the near future to devise moans whereby sewerage may be extended to very section of Richmond jf THE Anderson News says It looks very much as if the tight for the Democratic nomination for Governor would overshadow the races for Congress in the State of Kentucky this fall The talk now is who aro you for for Cover nor and not a word about the Demo

defeats his opponent Col Ewell by a large majority One thing Kta time and do that well Next years races can take care of themselves So fellow Democrats talk Helm for Con gress until after the November

history of Richmond Kentucky it appears to the writer that it should be preceded by a few events in the annals of Madison county which lead to the establishment and organization of Richmond the judi cial seat and most important city in the countyIn beginning let me say that of all the counties that I have ever written a history of I haveyet to find one that can compare with Madison historically and especially is this true in this State Madison county is tho most historical county in the State The first settlement made in Kentucky was made at Boonesboro Madison county in the spring of 1775 by a party of sturdy North Carolinians and Virginians under the command of Col Daniel Boone This company of adventurers had entered into Kentucky in the spring of 1775 for the purpose of hunting homes for themselves and some of them raised crops of corn that year within the limits of the present county of Madison When the land commissioners of Vir ginia held their session at Ft Boones boro in December 1779 the land on which Richmond was afterwards located was claimed by Thomas Johnson as a settlement and afterwards pre emption right and this claim of John son was allowed by the commissioners The right of Johnson had been previously assigned to Col William Hoy the founder of Fort Hoy at Foxtown and was subsequently transferred to Capt Jno Miller and William Miller No town was established here until a much later period and no cabins built or settlement made until 17st The land around the present site of Richmond and its vicinity seemed to have been quite attractive to many prominent and leading settlers of the county of Madison and the State of Kentucky The county and survey books of James French and John Crooke the earliest surveyors of Madison show that preemption and settlement lands of Daniel Boone Squire Boone Richard Calloway Jesse Benton James Estill Nathaniel Hart John Boyle and many others clustered around Richmond and adjoining country between Fort Estill and Silver Creek On the first of August 1785 the county of Madison was sepa rated from Lincoln and in February r 1787 by order of the Court of Quarter Session of Madison county Milford was made our first county seat That place was not then a town but it was established as such by act of the Virginia Legislature in 1789 This town was named Milford by Capt John Kincaid one of its earliest settlers and was built upon a little hill on a branch of Taylors Fork of Silver Creek In 1703 owing to the division of the county and the extension of the settlements on the frontiers of Madison the town of Milford became inconvenient as a county scat An act was passed by the Kentucky Legislature allowing the county seat to be changed by a majority vote of the magistrates of the county provided the citizens of Milford were paid for their improvement On the sixth of March 1793 tho magistrates of the county ordered that the county seat be moved to the center of the population and ordered that the ridge near Doha Millers bambe sppoteted astke seat ot i l A BRIEF HISTORICAL SKETCH OF THE CITY OF RICHMOND KENTUCKY justice of the county James French was then county sur veyor elected in Virginia and the coun ty Court of Madison county ordered him to survey and lay off certain lands for the use of public buildings prison bounds and stray pens and in 1793 Richmond became the county seat and the foundation of our beautiful city beganMadison county is delightfully situated in the Central part of Kentucky Its towering and majestic hills stand out like grim sentinels in the eastern part of the county 4 county where all is peace challenging all the world to com pete with it in grandeur and scenic beauty Its location one of its chief charms which like the airy fairies of old are beckoning to the stranger to come and find happiness and content ment within its borders It has been and is at present the home of many distinguished men It requires but a gentle puff to waft back the misty veil of the past and there to gaze in rapture upon immortal fame of those men whose names have gone down in history whose fame has spread broadcast over the land Daniel Boone Capt James Estill Gen Cassius M Clay ex Governor Mc Creary exGovernor of Missouri David R Francis exGovernor of Missouri W J Stone Capt John Wilson the man who first planted the Confederate flag on Lookout Mountain and others equally as prominent and claimed old Madison as home The chief products of the county are hemp corn wheat oats tobacco and live stock allof which produced in abundanceStockraising is also a gigantic enter prise within itself Kentuckys own natural bluegrass is found in all parts of the county There are no lands bettor adapted for grasses Clover timothy and orchard grass make standard hay of commerce and are grown here and on the increase This county is espec- Ially adapted to fruit culture Apples peaches plums and cherries grow well and yield abundantly To those con templating putting out largo orchards we call attention to Madison county The of the county is varied the surface being broken and carved by numerous streams The agricultural land is not confined to any part of the county The best body of land for corn raising is the bluegrass area of this county The creek and river bottoms have rich friable soil that may be cultivated every year without loss of fertility tho Silver creek valleys overflowing almost every year and a sediment several inches thick is deposited the land keeping it up to the highest degree of fertilityThere not a county in the State better adapted to livestock interests The climate is of such a nature that cattle hogs and sheep thrive on the common pastures nine months in the year without extra attention Madison county is abundantly supplied with water Rivers creeks springs and branches form a perfect net work The water of these creeks is pure and clear as Madison county offers great Inducements to manufacturers on account of abundance of raw material and water- power yet she offers greater induce r menU to those who desire to engage in horticultural agricultural livestock and poultry business As to its manufacturing advantages a large quantity of raw material cheap and satisfactory labor low cost of living and proximity to market are the points and most important advantages for seekers of manufacturing establishments to consider- A simple statement of setting forth the city of Richmond as it is today giv ing salient features chiefly and modest ly pointing to what seems possible con jectures as to future prosperity may not be amiss in this edition The City of Richmond with a population of nearly nine thousand thriving and prosperous is located on the L d N and L A railroads in the central part of Madison county of which it is the judi cial seat Since its inception in 1793 it has never experienced any fictitious growth but has developed slowly surely and steadily as the country around and about it has made advances in agricul ture stock raising and other kindred sources of farm revenue and during the past four years its growth has been very markedRichmond challenges attention because it is one of the most delightful towns of residences on the continent because of its salubrious and tempered climate because of its low cost of living because of its healthfulness and low death rate because of its freedom from epidemics and contagious diseases because of its educational advantages and last but not least because of its business opportunitiesmanufacturing- mercantile and professional The coun A SI IN are are try surrounding Richmond is rich and all kinds of field crops vegetables and fruit are grown The great advantages of cheap living are at once apparent here People in all grades of life are enabled to live easier happier and more comfortable here than in many other places where expenses are higher The city is lighted by both gas and electricity and has an abundance of pure water for all domestic and fire protection purposes The police department is efficient and the fire department excellent The city officials are men every one of whom is deeply interested in the future of Rich mond and are pledged without regard to party politics to do all in their power to make Richmond a larger and better cityThere are many miles of wellpaved streets sidewalks of cement and stone and convenient alleys while the road way approaches to the city compare favorably with any in the State Richmond has churches of nearly all denominations educational advantages equal to any in the State a fine opera house good hotels three newspapers viz The Register The Panta graph and The Climax In Rich mond is located the Eastern Kentucky State Normal School and Madison Female Institute which are among the most favorably known institutions in the countryThe blocks are unusually im posing for a city of its size The banking Interests are represented by four solid institutions all doing a successful business on a conservative bask the officers and directors of each being among our most prominent and truet worthy citizens The stocks of merchandise carried by the retail merchants are full sad oem plete and compare favorably with those coined by similar stores in thelarge cities hence it is absolutely unnecessary n to go outside of Richmond to make pur chases of any description The pro fessionsare represented by progressive physicions dentists and attorneys while the real estate agencies are conducted by men thoroughly familiar with realty and property values Among the many advantages of Rich mond are low taxes low rents excellent factory sites no sympathetic strikes healthful residence locations excellent educational facilities many churches and excellent shipping accommodations- But few cities have such beautifully shaded streets the trees bordering them lending a most peaceful and homelike appearanceWhile improvements in Richmond have not been rapid they have been substantial and the citizens are ever ready to grasp and push to a successful issue any measure that is for the better ment of the city With every facility for transportation and an agricultural population steadily increasing and widening and strength ening the home market the incentives to energy and rewards open to enter prise exist hero to an extent not ex celled by any city in the Union of pro- portionatef size to Richmond To the manufacturer the merchant the man of affairs the man having childron to educate Richmond extends a cordial invitation

Climax feels justly pleased at the largo assortment of engravings in this edition for they give an idea of the city of Richmond and its advantages never before attempted A number of them were reproduced from photographs taken by McGaughey the well known photographer of Third triHK DESCRIPTIVE OF OUR MAN- YENTERPRISES Societies of Richmond Secret and Fraternal Richmond if well represented in its secret and fraternal organizations and moreover each and every one of them is strong not only in membership but as well from the fraternal and benevolent feeling and results radiating from them all It Is an old saying and an accepted one that a member of any organization who lives up to his or her obligations cannot stray very far from the paths of Christianity as exemplified in the teach ings of the Golden Rule and this feel ing is very largely manifested by the members of the numerous secret frater nal and benevolent societies of Rich mond Among the orders here are Masons Elks Knights of Pythias Red Men Modern Woodmen A O U W Odd Fellows National Union Daughters of Rebekah Junior O U A M M B A Knights Templar several colored Lodges and the societies connected with the various Churches as wellas a number of social musical and other clubs Churches of Richmond Onr Religious Organizations The spiritual welfare of Richmond is taken care of by Churches of the follow ing denominations Baptist Presbyter ian Christian MethodistEpiscopal Roman Catholic Episcopal and several colored denominations The Church buildings are in the main large and commodiousThat interest is manifested in all the religious services as well as in the work of the numerous auxiliary societies and that the various Pastors are earnest workers in the cause is evident cityRichmondrougher element and crimes of any de scription are rare indeed and this con ditionj is undoubtedly due in great measure to the good influences which radiate in all directions from our religious organizations Civic Pride Richmond Must Have- Improvements One of the traits of a wideawake progressive town iscivic pride It is a good trait for while sometimes it leads one into making slightly exagerated goodhealthyat all times conducive to the prosperity and growth of his city It makes ono vigorous in defense and persistent in undertakings it is an incentive to in dustry it makes the individual con tented and therefore happy Believe in youhavein the minority and that it takes all kinds of people to make a world any way Encourage live people to move in by making it worth their while Welcome outside capital in developing any natural resources the town has Dont begrudge the dollars the enter prising man makes but hustle around and collar a few yourself Above all pull together and the town will ride the

delicious soda and other drinks No Redeeming Features By ExMal or C E Woods The American saloon has not a single redeeming feature says Henry Watterson whiskeys chief apostle Then in the name of High Heaven why should any community have sa loons and in tho light of our experience in Richmond why should we allow saloons to return I have been called a crank because I hate a saloon like the Devil docs Holy Water The very creatures who compliment me thus have stained the court records of Ken tucky with all the crimes from gambling to murder have been the instruments of tearing down instead of building up society the city or the stale and yet they have their weight in shaping the destiny of our government though they can point to nothing in their careers that adds lustre to their reputation as per cent of the saloon vote of Richmond judged by the names on their recent petition to vote back saloons have been in our jail or penitentiary I challenge contradiction of this indict ment I have the records Over twentyfive per cent of these petitioners could not read nor write I challenge contradiction The petition itself proves it Over twentyfive per cent of the peti tioners pay no taxes not even the tax to VOTE their poll tax The records prove it Half of the 400 petititioners were negroesto the shame of their better element And what is equally astounding ALL the petitioners com bined 400 in number comprising 33 per cent of the voting population of Rich mond do not pay 10 per cent of the taxes of the city county or state Let that soak in taxpayers I have had to contend with such secret enemies of good government and have earned their distinguished hatred their secret opposition and the complimentary title of crank I wish now publicly to say that if tho shoe I am here making pinches their feet they must wear it It is a damnable outrage against the helpless minors of this city to have the criminal illiterate nontaxpaying element of our population override the standing up clean and hardworking clement by voting back saluons here next March 11 It will never come to pass God will not punish a city for doing its duty Richmond has been sober three years after sixty years of drunkenness murder and stagnation In those three years we have made more progress than duringany twenty previous years And we owe absolutely nothing to the element that would make us all drunk again And yet during those three dry years we had to combat the evil in fluences and criminal practices of a largo clement of those who attached their names to petitions for reopening saloons here- I hope the 20000 country people who reside outside of Richmond will force the grass to grow kneedeep on our Main street if we allow saloons to reopen I hope the Legislature will cut off the appropriation for our Normal School if we voto back saloons here Isay this because but for the country people today our proud city would be a wilder ness and but for the dry counties of eastern and central Kentucky our Nor mal school would be but a Prep school with 40 home children instead of hav ing as at present nearly 1000 of the com ing citizens male and female of all Eastern Kentucky who never in their lives saw an open saloon 85 per cent of the crime committed in Richmond was duo to saloons Murder arson stabbings shootings vagrancy and misery originated in them Since they closed July 11007 every form of crime has decreased and peace and prosperity have grown in proportion Ask the laborers ask the JAILER Ask the Court Officials from Judge Benton on down Ask the City Judge the Police ChiefThank God for Jim Allman ask the leading colored citi zens The latter have increased their property since saloons closed from 05 000 to 100000 ask the City Collector The whites have increased their proper ty valuations since saloons closed 81 00000000 ask the City Assessor The Water Company has laid two miles of new mains and build a new 30000 reservior The Electric Company has installed new machinery

half stated the dry side of the question I challenge any wet advocate to debate the issue with me from Big Hill to Poosey Until we settle the saloon question allover Kentucky am going to fight for Mayor Ricos motto Tho Boy is above the Dollar I can do that best by helping to close every licensed saloon in Kentucky They have put my relatives and friends out of business and I want to get even To

11 1909 by the present owner John Christman who came here from Paris Ky where he had been ini the same business all his business life He is a practical florist who understands the business in every detail The green houses are modern In every particular and there are four thousand five hun dred feet under glass and the increase in the volume of business has been so marked since the present owner took charge that arrangements are now under way to add another one thou sand feet of glass The Richmond Greenhouses deal in all kinds of flowers flowering plants bedding plants and cut flowers and a specialty is made of designs ahd set pieces for weddings and funerals Particular attention is also given to church social and lodge entertain ments and banquets and to all func tions where cut flowers plants and ferns are desired for decorative pur poses The business is not only local but shipments are made to neighbor ing cities and faraway points as well With greenhouses like these in our midst it is absolutely unnecessary to send away for anything in flowers and plants for aside from our natural im pulse to patronize home industries the assortment to be had here com pares favorably with that to be found anywhere and at prices far below those in the larger cities and that these facts are appreciated is proven by the large and rapidly increasing business enjoyed by the Richmond Greenhouses which are located about onehalf mile from the Postoffice building on West Main street and it Is not only one of the pleasant treats but one of the favorite walks or drives of the people to visit these green houses and admire the collection of beautiful flowers and blooming plants always on exhibition and which are unsurpassed even in the leading establishments of the larger cities RICHMOND GREENHOUSES The Richmond City Schools Our Educational System Richmond has reason indeed to be proud of its educational system for but few places of like population arc as well equipped to care for and instruct the youthful mind into paths that lead to the upbuilding of honorable men and women and to lives of usefulness and respect and should perchance any of the many pupils who are now attending the Rich mond schools ever fall from the paths of rectitude they can never lay the blame to any lack of interest manifested in them by SuperintondentHCoates and his corps of conscientious assistants The early history of the Richmond schools is shrouded in uncertainly as is the history of all institutions of longstanding where no attempt has been made to keep an official record It is known however thatjthe first school teacher in Richmond was Isreal Donaldson who when twentythree years old reached here on the evening of June 1st 1793 by stage coach Ho was orig inally on an emigrant boat one of a fleet of nineteen which sailed up and down the Ohio river and of which fleet Major Parker of Lexington Kentucky was both Admiral and Pilot What turned his footsteps in the direction of the then infant settlement of Richmond history does not tell us but we do know that during the summer of 1709 and the en suing winter he taught school in Rich mond near where now the store of Owen McKee is located The first school that was established in Richmond that we have any know ledge of was in the summer of 1799 and was hold in a rough log cabin The town and county were then sparsely settled and the scholars few and far between The building was built of round logs and covered with clapboards and was about sixteen feet square One half of the floor was covered with planks hewed from logs the other half was naked earth There were no desks and the equipment was exceedingly simple and primitive A rough board was placed along one side of the building and was supported by pins driven into auger holes bored in one of the logs This was made for the accommodation of such scholars as were far enough advanced to take writing lessons Benches made of wide rails into which pins or stakes were driven into auger holes as legs and these constituted the seats while a rough table behind which the master sat in stern dignily switch and book in hand com pleted the furniture of the school It is to be regretted that for many years the educational facilities of Richmond as well as a great portion of the entire State of Kentucky continued in a very primitive condition and it may be truthfully said that only within the past ten years have really radical changes been made in our city school system During this period however and particularly in the past four or five years wonderful strides have been made in the right direction until today the schools of Richmond are well up in the front ranks and compare favorably with any in the State from an advanced edu cational standpoint The school buildings of Richmond are two in number being the Caldwell High Turpin Todd Contractors and Builders Judge N B Turpin is Secretary Treasurer and T S Todd General

laboratories will be added this year Within the past few months twenty five thousand dollars in improvements have been made so that now the CaM well school has twentyfour light airy class rooms as well as an auditorium with a seating capacity of twelve hundred while the class rooms in the colored school havo been increased to fifteen and an auditorium capable of seating eight hundred persons These auditoriums are used for chapel purposes and all occasions when school entertainments or other exercises are given The enrollment of the Richmond schools in 19091910 was nearly thirteen hundred one hundred and forty of but experienced workmen and as they are practical men themselves and superintend all work they are in a position to guarantee all contracts They are glad to furnish plans speci fications and estimates on any kind of work and nothing is too large or too small for them to bid on whether in Richmond or away from here are also dealers in porch colums steel and galvanized

RICHMOND ELECTRIC AND POWER COMPANY Prominent among the metropolitan advantages which in many ways Rich mond possesses is the excellent system of electric lighting supplied and maintained by the Richmond Electric and Power Company This enterprise was founded in 189S passing into the hands of the present company in 1901 since which time the plant has been rebuilt and the facilities augmented to such an extent that the company is prepared to meet all demands that may be made upon it Contort with a moderate return on the capital Invest ed the terms charged bv the Rich mond Electric and

E Bean President of the General Engineering Company of Cleveland 0 after a thorough investigation of the plant here pronounced it the best small plant in the country electricity is rapidly superceding all othpr forms of artificial lighting In Dublin use and estimation That this is so is due to the practically universal recognition of its sjnerior quality adaptation and convenience for light Inc purposes This is true of electric light not only in the ordinary field of sel service but more especially as It lend Itself to original anti studied effects in ornamental and display light ingIts liberal use for showwindow ad vertising electric slims and general Jlu Micitv effects hs become a valued and permanent asset in the business of the day The advent of the Tungsten lamp has practically effected a reduction in the cost of electric lighting of 50 per cent a compared with the carbon fila ment lamp in universal use several vears ago and this together with the tmnroved designs of reflectors etc has erected A large improvement in the distribution and diffusion of the light The light from the nevi Maz purposes have no superior and but few equals on the market and are known to

a membership of over five thou sand in the United States Hon James B McCreary is being strongly urged to make the race for the Democratic nomination for Gover nor of Kentucky and he has received about one thousand letters along this line As these letters came from nine tytwo counties it Is proof positive that the desire to again see him In the gubernatorial chair is not con fined to any one section but is uni versal Moreover between sixty and seventy Democratic newspapers in the State have already come out boldly for him believing that he is the only man who can carry the party to vic tory These unbiased appeals must be particularly flattering to Senator Mc Creary as they are entirely unsolicited and this pressure is being brought to bear upon him after he has repeatedly and honestly said that he would never accept another political nomination Yet we feel convinced that the public spirit within him and which has in years past made him of so much ser vice to his State and Nation will again prevail and that he will put self aside and consent to allow his name to be used as a candidate for nomina tion and when nominated by the Dem ocratic party for the office of Governor of the

not married attended school at the Stanford Male Academy and graduated from the Central Uni versity of Kentucky with the degree of A B began the practice of law in 1890 elected a member of the House of Representatives in 1893 served as such in the General Assembly of Kentucky session of 1894 elected County Attorney of Lincoln county in 1897 for the term of four years and reelected in 1900 was delegate from the Eighth district to the Democratic National Convention at Kansas City in 1900 was elected to the Sixtieth Congresa and reelected to the Sixtyfirst Con gress receiving 17725 votes to 16049 for L W Bethurum Republican and 442 for A Johnson Prohibitionist While Mr Helm will be reelected in November for a third term of two years he has really served less than three years since the beginning of the first term in which he took his seat It usually requires that long for the average new member to learn the par liamentary methods of Uncle Joes school room but Mr Helm has by absolutely constant attendance on his duties already forged to the front He has in his files and on his books the names of over two thousand people constituents for whom he has transacted business of importance to them in the departments These of course do not include the thousands of letters that he has written in response to those wanting information litera ture patents postoffice changes and the other multitudinous requests in a mail that is large four times a day whether he is in Washington or at his little home town of Stanford Neither does it include any of the larger things he has accomplished for nearly all the counties in his district in the way of new public buildings bridges build Round CRAB ORCHARD SPRINGS J B Willis Manager Orchard Springs The name signifies so much to thousands of people and brings back vividly neverto beforgotten memories of happy spent at this delightful resort where health pleasure and rest are combined Nothing there is left by the management and the result is that Crab Orchard Springs is favora bly known not alone in Kentucky but throughout the entire country All summer long this famous resort forty miles from Richmond by rail and only thirty by turnpike has been crowded with guests On 5 ing sites representation in the West Point and Annapolis Academies census and marine corps appointments and the improvements in the railroad mail and rural route services all over districtWhen comes to the big things before Congress Mr Helm has taken more than the average new members part therein Being a member of the important Insular Affairs and Public Building Expenditures Committees his study and speeches have been devoted to subjects as a rule most con sidered by those committees His speech on the tariff during the extra session and his speech against the ship subsidy grab in the last session were as much or more complimented by his host of friends among the older members of the House than any delivered by any young Democrat bn either subject His was one of the few set speeches by Democrats on the ship subsidy bill which he and the rest of the minority succeeded in hav ing sidetracked at least till the possi bility of electing a Democratic House is decided His speech in the last ses sion on behalf of something like home rule for the island of Porto Rico was the most applauded of any delivered in the House on that and the victory that be and the other members of the minority portion of the Insular Affairs Committee succeeded in wrest ing from the majority for Porto Rico was the most signal if the least her alded of any won by the Democrats at the last session One of the chief signs that Mr Helm is developing into a member so useful that the Eighth district and his party will want no change is the stand Ing and influence he has with his fel low members of the House It has been remarked about the Capitol that more members of the House know him than any man from the West or South and when he wants anything he asks for it the response and conclusion usually being Well I reckon we will have to do that for Harvey Main Hotel Cost 100000 Winter Scene Crab Orchard Springs Ky Open the Year Crab hours

business for himself he had practically no capital in fact he and his wife even sold some of their personal effects to get together money enough to make the start Today he is one of the most successful business men in Central Kentucky and has one of the largest establishments He was born and raised in Madison county his father being C K Oldham at one time Sheriff of the county W D Oldhams success is but another evidence of what a poor young man of pluck and ability and energy can accomplish By 1902 bis business had so in creased that larger quarters became necessary and a building was erected on the site where his store now stands This was destroyed by fire early in 1906 and as soon as possible the build Ing now occupied was completed and moved into the same year 1906 This store building is 34x120 feet two floors and basement The basement is com pletely furnished as a salesroom and with the ground floor is used for the display of goods The second floor is divided into office

Friend In relation to the tobacco pooling movement tits year Madison county occupies an unique position before the State and in the eyes of other states where varying warfare of farmers against combinations is being waged In former years growers of this particular section have not been allied with the pool in force Reasons for this apathy have been multiple but because transitory are unworthy a review at this time There can be no question that a new light has broken upon the planters and coordinate interests One after an other objections have been met and excuses discredited and this year finds a small army supporting a cause which yielded them a rich harvest even while they antagonized it or stood dumbly in wayA feel an obligation for the consecrated persevering consistent courageous service which others have given for a common weal Many see only a sound business proposition and give It their support because it has been proven to be to their material gain If the price of tobacco has been doubled In suits the manufacturers admit it by effort in which Madison has had no share tremendous possibil ities of achievement and progress with a wider union among farmers are made certainThrough the very same cooperation which renders trusts potent and powerful it has been established that the farmers can fix and maintain the price justlcethey have risen to the rank of a sovereign power The annual revenue to the State from their firstmoney crop has been multiplied by two and means for further equable multiplica tion provided Every line of business from the store supplying a tenants need to banks and bigger institutions has enjoyed a direct material benefit and has a responsibility in giving support to the agency Education church and general progress have been revitalized by this in flux of millions and by its continuation Kentucky must advance speedily and automaticallyThe crop of 1910 affords the movement an unequalled opportunity to build for the future A giant lever of control Is literally thrust into the hands of the farmer Although the quality is sure to be Inferior this crop in the pool will command any reason able price that may be put upon It As a simple business proposition the pool offers more money for not one crop merely but for all future crops it eliminates individual risk and responsi bility it extends protection and secur- Ity and guarantees permanence to the Industry it affords an opportunity for every grower to become a unit in a cooperative movement which gives him the combined strength and force of every other grower it insures his property protects his family and wid ens his possibilities it gives him countenance among his fellows and serenity of conscience From pure promptings of selfinter ests Madison county must join with the sturdy patriots who have founded and made strong the pooling movement and when her support has been enlisted in any cause she has always done her full share The scope of the central plan is such a position of strength that the institu tion which handles its tobacco could manufacture It Short of that how ever and already demonstrated in the face of the most desperate opposition is the freedom and the independence of the individual grower and prosper- Ity for the Burley state Those who sign their tobacco have all to gain and nothing to lose The Burley Tobacco Society is now in un disputed command of the market and will beyound doubt determine the price of the 1910 crop However if the strength of this pool should not be sat isfactory the growers have the option of voting their own release The fol lowing resolution passed by the District Board and legally as binding as the pooling contract itself affords the growers the sole right to determine whether or not the contract they sign shall become binding The District Board of the Burley Tobacco Society on July 14th 1910 adopted unanimously a resolution to the following effect That prior to October 1st 1910 the present Board will submit to the pool ers of the 1910 crop of Burley tobacco or request their successors to submit on or before November 1st 1910 all information in its possession as to the number of acres of Burley tobacco planted in the district the number of acres pooled and the number of acres not pooled in the said district and win give the poolers the right and place upon them the responsibility of determining whether the pool shall be declared on or off by a vote at the various precincts In each county at such time and In such manner as may hereafter be suggested by the District Board of the Burley Tobacco Society or its committee Each pooler at said election will be permitted to vote upon the question as to whether the pool shall be declared on or off and will be allowed to vote such a number of votes as corresponds to the number of acres of tobacco which he has pooled with the Society that Is for each acre he has pooled with the Society he will be allowed one vote but no vote for a fraction of an acre and he will be supplied with proper ballots for that purpose After the said vote Is taken at the various precincts at the time and In the manner designated by the Board or its committee the result In each precinct will be reported immediately to the County Board of the county in which the precincts are located and a record of the votes will be kept on the minutes of the said County Board and the results thereof tabulated counted reported and certified to the headquarters of the Society at Lexington The result of the vote in the entire district will then be ascertained at the headquarters of the Society at Lexington by careful com putation and count and the question as to whether or not the pool shall be declared on and maintained or declared off shall be ascertained by this final count the majority of the votes to determine the question either for or against the pool GRANT E LILLY Attorney at Law Attorney Grant E Lilly was born at Irvine Ky

about sev entyfive acres These lakes were recently deepened and their capacity in creased to one hundred and fifty mil lion gallons In 1909 the second lake was added at a cost of nearly fortyfive thousand dollars The water Is pure and wholesome By this enlargement it has placed Richmond in a position to supply water to any number of manufacturing industries which should locate in our midst From these lakes two large Worthington engines force the water into a standpipe 135 feeet high by 15 feet in diameter with a capacity of 140000 gallons from which it is fed into the mains and distributed through out the city These mains or pipes are of the very best material and of better quality than those generally used in cities twice the size of Rich mond Service pipes are Installed in
