Ky Dec 19Th Court of Appeals tTusticg Settle writing declared the 500000 aprpriation for the State University andi NonaI Schools provided for in tle S llivanBuruam law constitutional This appropriation was made by the last Legislature and suit i was brought when the Auditor refusid to issue tile warrant The case was heard by Judge Stout who decided in favor of the schools whereupon Auditor James took an appeal f Of the 500000 apropriation Btate University at Lexington gets 200 000 find the Eastern Normal School at Richmond and Western Normal School at Bowling Green 150000 each The opinion of the Appellate Court affirms completely the judgment of the lower court by Circuit Judge Stout holding that of thC lump ap propriation of 500000 for the three institutions onethird is due now and that of the additional 70000 annual appropriation for the institu tions 30000 for the Western Normal and 20000 each for the Eastern Normal and the State University is payable for the current fiscal year Auditor Frank P James who brought the suit to test the constitu tionality of the big school appropria tion had little to say when told that the Court of Appeals had decided that the apropriation is valid Her said I stand ready to draw warrants for the money as stated in the act out of such funds as are not otherwise appropriated but the question of final payment of these warrants rests with the State Treas urer Of course if there is no money in the State Treasury the warrants cannot be paid While we are paying cash on warrants now this willnot last long as we are running on the school fund and the school teachers must have their money It will be but a short time under present condi tions to say nothing of the big ap propriation until there will be noth ing in the Treasury to pay warrants EPISCOPAL CHURCH JLADIES MAKE 70V Sale at Kidwells Drug Store Was Quite a Success The sale given by the ladies of the Episcopal church at Kidwells Drug- Store yesterday ws

comical things happen even up here the same as in a theater Sometimes in rush seasons there aint enough hands togo round and we have to take em green as the hills I had one once a kid from Vermont a whale of a kid with bones like a horse and eyes awful anxious ta please eyes that made you like him Hes one of the best men Ive got now but then he was green as God made him The foreman stopped to chuckle Go up t6 the eighteenth floor I told him one day and bring down an old man I was busy at the time and when I saw the kid stare I said kind of sharp that if that old man wasnt here in five minutes the whole blamed building would probably go to smash Thiswas just my way of making him hustle but he thought I meant it word for word He went up on the run and in a few minutes he came down with a sputtering clawing old feller held like a vise in his arms He was the only old man on the floor said the kid and he wanted to stop and argue about it but from what you said I knew what it meant I6 I just grabbed Mm and came You see the foreman added kind ly noting my puzzled expression an old man happens to be the name of a tool we use EV ryhndys Magazine Advertise In The News t 1 t JI P e

a protector such as Illustrated herewith will be foundiof great advantage The best feature about the protector Is that the first fowl to step on the running board I I 1= =SelfOpening Poultry Protector will release the doors which will drop and allow her and the other fowl to escape The only thing therefore neces sary in operating is1 to lift the door in the eveping after the fowls have gone to roost It will latch itself and remain in that position during the nightAs will be seen from the crosi seoitpn says the Orange Judd Farmer the Por is balanced and connected witha stout wire to latch of the door This being tilted somewhat outward from above readily falls when the latch is sprung by the hen stepping I I Cross Section of Protector on the floor beyond the point of balance The measurements given in the drawing are merely suggestive For large fowls the height of 12 inches may not be great enough but this any poultryman can readily fix for him self The mesh of the wire front should be too small to permit a weasel entering oneinch mesh Is plenty small enough ST JOHNS DAY St Johns Day December 27 is the day fixed by the laws of the Masonic Order for holding elections of
