' < 6 DECAY PREVENTED, Money Suved and LeH.* Material Needed. t i It is estimated that a fence post,! which under ordinary circumstauoes will last for perhaps two years, will, if given preservative treatment coating about 10 cents, last eighteen years. The service of other timbers, each as railroad ties, telephone poles, and mine props, can be doubled and trebled by inexpensive preservative treatment. Today, when the cost of wood is a big item to every farmer, every stockman, every railroad manager?to everyone, in fact, who must use timber where it is likely to decay?this is u fact which should be carefully considered. It is easy to see that the length ot time timbers can be used is doubled, only half as much timber will be required as before and only one-half as much mouey will need to be spent in the mirchase of timber. More over, many woods which were for a long time considered almost worthless can be treated and made to last as long as the scurcer and more expensive k...

2 TOO PARTISAN TO HOLLER. V Col. W. P. Throne, lieutenantgovernor of Kentucky, is one of the ^ best campaigners and story tellers to be found in Kentucky. One of the best he told in the recent camoaiirn runs a follows: "It was just after W. O. Bradley was elected governor of Kentucky* in 1905, and the Republicans in my county were holding a big ratification meeting. Braes bunds, all kinds of floats and banners, aud hundreds of men and women and boys had been parading the streets. A young girl cluimed that while stunding on her front porch, which was almost covered with vines aud foliage of different kinds, she was repeatedly hugged aud kissed by a young man whom she hardly knew. A warrant was sworn out for her assailant. He was arrested and it wus my duty as commonwealth's attorney to prosecute him. Jo' u Carroll, wiio is at pros ent a judge of the K^ntucy court of appeals, had beeu employed to defend him. I Boon finished my examination of the witness, and turned him over to Carroll...

Her reply in part is: "The woman who can cook well who knows how to prepare dainty as well as wholesome food, who has! something worth offering in the culinary line, is really better off today than the home girl who is an indifferent cook, but free to turn to office or store work when the family income drives her to wage earning.
