The present century will see the Eastern part of Kentucky develop conditions like but superior to those that developed in Western Penny vania during the last Will Winches ter be in a position to take advantage of them This great Nationyis clothed and fed and comforted in a swarming with people who must be thousand different wavs besides on all the stores of all seas are mil lions whom modern eallsltips have brought so near o the United States that they have become dependent uPoil the output of its fields and mines and factories for many of lifes necessities All of which de pend upon coal coal to man fact are and coal to transport Largest Coal Field Probably the largest undeveloped coal field in the world is that of Eastern Kentucky and West Virgin ia These fields lie at Winchesters feet and must seek their Western markets through her portals Win chester is nestled in fields of richest bluegrass and is the first city that is coming westward out of the mountains This fact has been of inestimable blessing to Winchester already but what has gone before is hardly a prelude to what is to follow if Winchester citizens rightly use them The limestone dips under the slates of the Deovinian along the city southeastern border and they in turn render the white mount in lime of the subcarbpniferous and it under the sandstones slates and coals of the true carboniferous Seven Workable Veins All the way to the Cumberland mountains these coal bearing rocks extend carrying as many as seven workable vans of coalsjnuch of it looking like the best J lvania PJirJos e 4 During the year 1907 Kentucky produced 9740420 tons ofcoal valued at 10714462 making it eighthamongst the States in amount mined Most of this was mined in the Western section and it is farrbehind the 130 millions raised in Pennsylvania but the State has the area to equal the latter State and Southwardalong the Alleghenies the course of King Coals empire is wending its way Kentuckys coal was of the value of 110a ton compare this with 112 fpr Penn sylvania and 95 cents for West Vir ginia Natural Gas Field u Then there is that other great fuel natural gas of which the high lands seem richly stored and pos sibly the bluegrass section By the Kentuckysthe oil and gas found in the rocks that overlie it Oil and kits are the remains of the fats in the countless fishes shellfish corals etc that lived in the Silurian seas and whose mausoleum our lim stone is There is every reason to believe that rich slotesofoil and gas have as yet been hardly touched nearly all the work yet done being around the edge of the field where the measures are shallow and the reservoirs easily tapped With the ads veiit ofimore railroads the whole region will be developed Chief Source of Wealth Timber asbeei the mountains chief source of wealth in the past and will Continue so for many year to come The wonderful store ot yellow Panlarare gone The generations that succeed this one will not realize what jfalnuts and poplars the J nsonc6 grew I have seen a poplar stumpr Le tclidrs buultnOhthaf this people held dances on not only one but several Some of j2 r j tr the mountain trees would have given California a race for supremacy If I were to tell ofwhat the walnuts were the Ananias Club would want me for censor morum although I need not deviate an iota from the truth The Remaining Timber The remaining timber is all hard wood mostly oak This county has been one of the most important lum ber producers because of its mills along the river and must see to it that the changing1 conditions that are today confront g the lumber bus iness do not P1eSItent advantage Economy will de mand that the finished product be made nearer the source of raw ma terial and with our gas f of both kind we ought to make this a great manufacturing point Many wavs suggest themselves to an imaginative mind how Winchester should use these nearby riches how the citizens may get into the wave of progress and prosperity that is bound to engulfour near neighbors on the East and SonthAllour hopes depend on transportation we are not in that wonderful treasure house its riches will have to be brought to us we can not go to them Our three railroads are an equipment that gives us the advantage over all competitors and then our river will soon be locked and dammed all the way We must see to it that the mountain railroads of the future do not pass us by With transportation we can secure fac tories to work up the raw products and I think that in this regard we have advantage over the mountains j this being a more pleasant land to live in and closer to the markets 7T Profit to Citizens Our citizens generally and espec iallour Warmers will profit by the increase ofT pbpulation in the mountains which are so rough that their arable lands will never be sufficient to support many people i In conclusion we must remember that tile good things dome to them who go after them and that with all the

of the words constituting the line of printed RE characters The difficulty about jus tifiaction arisesAfrom the fact that the size of the spaces required is not known until the line is set The yiand

the Forms The moment the line of type leaves the machine ft is ready to go into the fprm without any second operation The spacing in any one line is uniform After a line is once setup it can be cast

JACKSON Merchants Need It My recentexperience of partnership in and co editorship of tine SunSentinel taught me forcibly the needof this city for a daily paper In the first place the merchants need jt the former excellent weekly and semiweekly affording no sufficient vehicle for the enterprising merchant who wants to push his claims to public consideration every day Then the reading public needs it as is evidenced by the way in which it has used the brief Winchester fcol umn in our enterprising neighbor the Lexington Herald Then our efforts to boom our town have been ham pered by having no daily champion events of importance frequently growing state before they can find expression in the older papers The daily Bro Perry got out during the state of affairs and incidentally an acknowledgment our needs And then if it is kept in high lives and above all efforts that will be made upon its character and reputation and free from partisanship it will fill a place much needed in our civic life

Big daily in greater Winchester with its associ ated dispatch service and all the fa cilities for gathering news at h and from abroad We sinceiel hope it shall be liberally patronized and stand four
