War Savings Stamps 

"It is to be hoped that every 
person who can do so will ex- 
ch.inge War .Saving Stamps soon 
to lull due. fr r treasury savings 
certificate." said our Postmaster 
"The large amount of money in- 
vested and the great number of 
persons who purchased war sav- 
ing* stamps showed that the 
people of this country could save 
money when the necesaity arose. 
Now, if they will take the money 
they saved when they bought 
stamps to aid the government in 
the prosecution of the war and 
buy Treasury saving cei tificates, 
they will demonstrate that the 
thrift lessons ol the war have not 
l)een without effect. The holders 
of war savings stamps have seen 
mvestment of about $20.50 grow 
to $23 in five  ears. and larger 
amounts in the same proportion. 
They can see the same thing re- 
peated if they reinvest in Treas- 
ury savings certificate*. Interest 
accumulatea to the rate of 4 per 
cent each year compounded semi- 
annually. These savings certifi- 
cates are exempt from the nor- 
mal Federal income lax, and from 
all Slate and local taxation (ex- 
lept estate and inheritance taxes) 
^^•j^'^bo-isali- *^ '-^ba ■owsoosi^' 
of $5,000. maturity value, for 
each issue, by every member of 
a familjr. They are backed by 
the credit of the United States 
Governawnt, and aford aa caay 
and sure method of saving. 

During the war llie Covcrnmen 
offered war savings ^la^lps, pay- 
ing about 4 per cent as a method 
of saving for people of small 
means. Since the war, and to take 
the place of war savings stamp*, 
the Government offered Trea*ury 
saving* certificate* in denomina- 
tion* of 125. $100 and  t|.000 now 
sold to investor* at $20.S0, $82 
and $820, reapoctlvaly. Thoy i ay 
4 per cent if held until maturity 
five year* from the data of itaua. 
About $625,000,000 of war sav- 
ings stamps, scries of 1918 be- 
come due January 1st, 1923, and 
the Government now offers f) 
issue Treasury savings certificates 
in exchange for them, affording 
the owners an opportunity to 
continue a safe investment with 
good interest. Saving has furnish- 
ed the life blood for many na 
lions and insures properity to the 
people. The Government i* doing 
everything poasibia to encourage 
saving in tbo Uaitad State* ^ 
offering sound and attractive 
securities lo' the investment ol 
small sums. If you want to save

CHAMBERLAIN'S COUGH 
REMEDY THE MOTHERi'S 
FAVORITE 

The soothing and healing pro- 
perties of Chamberlain's Cough 
Remedy, its pleasant taste and 
prompt and effectual cures have 
made it a favorite with people I fJJ,'^ oTbecrioo f 
everywhere. It is especially priz ' 
ed by mothers of young children 
for colds, croup and whooping 
ough, as it ahirays affords quick 
relief and is free from opium and 
otbar kanafal dnifa.,'

SPLEDID HOME TALENT 
PLAY 

The play. 1 rials of a I lotless" 
ffut on by the ladies of the Parent- 
Teachers Association. Friday and 
Saturday niKhts of lust week, 
was a success in evciy way It 
delighted the large audience 
which witnessed it both nights 
and earned a tidy sum for use in 
re-papering and painting some of 
the rooms of the Graded .Vhool 
building which are sadly in need 
of it. The play was just what it 
had been advertised - a laugh 
prodocer each minute, and the 
characters were all exceedingly 
well taken and so well performed 
that It would be unfair to men- 
tion one without mentioning the 
whole cast. The "black face" 
comedy at the close of the per- 
formance, by Mrs. O. D. Hryant 
Mrs. C. C. Davis. Mrs. Mattie fi 
Mullins and Miss Shoupe of Lan- 
gdon School, was done in .i man- 
ner .qual to the best profession- 
als, and judging from the Uughs 
It provoked was most thoroughly 
enjoyed by all. The music furn- 
ished between acts was delight- 
ful to the car. and the only fault 
we have to find is th.it the ad- 
captured four mission charged was entirely too 
low tor such an excellent perlor-

There waa a sharp demand for the 
better class of cattle and aome aold 
•a high as 7 1-2 cenU. This price 
was paid for choice yearling and 
two-year-old ateers. Heifers sold at 
4 to 5 cents. Quite a number of 
mules sold at $7,'-. to »100. The mule 
market is considerably briKhter, al-

MURDER WILL OUT 

It aeema now that tha mafderara 
of Lara ParMaa. tha Pfaw MaoaUin 
icbool teacher, vtetini of a brutal 
crime more than two yeara ago, may 
have to face trial in a court of Jaa- 
tice. Last week indictments were 
returned in thr Harlan circuit court 
airainst Ji rry Kecd and James Rob- 
inaon, nejrro convicts who were at 
work in that section of the slate when 
Miaa Parsons waa murdered, and 
John Marcum, of Clay county, a 
camp guard at the thae of tha kfU- 
ing. 

The indietmanta are the result of 
a secret investlKation conducted by 
the local authorities, resulting; in the 
findinK "f Miss Parsons' pocket-book, 
which one of the convicts had sold 
to aiiiither, after the i amp was clo.s- 
ed and the men taken back tu Krank- 
fort, and of the bleed atalaed un- 
derwear of one of tha eeavicts, 
which waa found In a hollow tree on 
the mountain trail. 

It ia reported In the press that one 
ef thaaa cenvietca is "out   n parole," 
and it la likely he still will be out 
on parole, if he reads tha giVMa (g 
hears of hia indictment 

Reports from Frankfort that tbo 
new indietmanta ara tha reralt ef an 
attempt to "fraaio^ the aaa aeeua- 
ed in order to claini the reteard of 
$1,600 also are to be taken into con- 
sideration, and it may be true that 
the hopes of the people uf the state 
for an early conviction and just pun- 
ishment of the slayerH of Miss Par- 
sons will uKain be disu| pointeil. 

As Daniel Webster once said, 
"Murder will out." That uaed to 
be • great deal truer than it ia now- 
adaya, for hi raeaal aaara thia eaun- 
try haa had a number af UHndera 
for which no man ever haa been ar- 
rested and punished. 

We hoi)e the Harlan (rrand jury 
Is not on u colil trail this time, as 
it was in former triala, growing out 
of this abiiraii 
rior Journal.

•Why Cull Poultry For Egg 
Production.' 

What wc mean by the word 
cull is to [lick out or select choice 
hens. Wc have already been 
taught that like bexet^ like and 
when you once get a (lock ol poul- 
try staited it is very essential 
that the culling work is atarted 
early in the game. 

In atarting in poultry work it 
ia best to raiae only one kind of 
poultry and it should be pure 
bred. Your flock will look better 
and the culling for egg produc- 
tioa eoa ba earr ad aa aaiah aasi- 
ci. 

We ahou'd watch our 11 nk and 
when a hen gets lazy ami spends 
moat ol her time on the rooat or 
dro« ping around the poult4r yard 

it ia time to cull, aa tbair aspaaaes 
are paid ky tka otkar baaa. 

A lot of attaotioa s bea l d ba 
given to tke eelectiea of male 
birds aa your puUeta are going 
to be in a larfea owasure like the 
male birds. In other worda i h 
rooeter is going to determine to 
a great eatant tka laying nuali- 
tiee of your pnllata. ^ 

It is only by ritkt culliag tkat 
the color of j^ur flock cad be 
kept up. for a poor color thia year 
will mean a veiy bad color in 
your next years chickens. Hy 
^circling hens that measure up 
tu liigh standards of egg produc 
tion your dock can be kept up to 
ika Standard. Gertrude Caudill
