GUARANTEED STRICTLY PURE
Cakes and Crackers
There is a wholesome, old-fashioned
taste about StrietmanrTs baking that
comes from pure, nourishing materials
—properly baked and carefully paeked.
That's just the kind of food you w ant
your children to eat.
Boys and Giria:
Put those fine biscuits
in the school lunch box
— in sandwiches of Pea-
nut Butter, Potted
Meats, Jellies or plain.
Keep a Rood supply in
the pantry at home.
At your grocers.

the last of a law family. He was
born December, 1848, and was the
\vungest of eleven crJTJien of John

zens of Madison county. It is worthy
of notice and to be regretted that with
his death the name of his immediate
family becomes, extinct ! • ■ illy, a
name that has boon in Madison coun-
ty from its eailiest history.
He was educated in the public
schools of this county and at the old
Madison Seminary. In early life he
engaged in farming- Later he be-
came a deputy sheriff, and then thf

The Celebrated Saddle Stallion
Monday morning at ten o'clock
there was a flag raising at Caldwell
High School building in this city. A
large number of citizens and patrons
and the scholars of the various de-
partments gathered in the auditorium
where patriotic songe were sung ami
First on the program was the sing-
ing of "America," by the entire audi-
ence standing, the school orchestra
playing the accompaniment. The mu-
sic was under the direction of Mi .s

which the school children sang was

Prof. Lewie, who has charge of the
music at the Brooks-Lewis revival at
the First Christian church, was pres-
ent and thrilled and charmed the au-
dience by singing two solos. He has
a fine voice and is a splendid singer.
At the conclusion of the songs.
Prof. D. W. Bridges, superintendent
of the school, in a few well chosen
words, introduced Hon. W. B. Smith,
the veteran lawyer and splendid citi-
zen, who knows more of the history
of this city and county than any liv-
ing man. More than three-quarters
of a century ago, Mr. Smith attended
school as a boy in a small building
where our present magnificent school
building now sits in majestic pride.
He told of conditions as they then ex-
isted. There were only boys attend-
ing school in the old days when he
was a school boy. There was always
a bunch of switches in the school
and the old fashioned schoolmaster
did not "spare the rod and spoil the
child." Mr. Smith made an excellent
speech and was roundly applauded.
He concluded his remarks by reciting
the poem of John I). Whittier, dedi-
cated to the little red school house.
At the conclusion of the speech-
making, the children formed in line
and passed out of the building very-
orderly and lined up in front of the
great institution of learning where
they sang "The Star Spangled Ban-
ner," with vim and vigor. As they
sang the last stanza of the National
air, a large American flag was un-
furled over the dome of the school
house and floated serenely in the gen-
tle breezes, amidst the vociferous ap-
plause of the children and visitors.
After the flag raising the scholars
and visitors returned to the auditor-
ium where Prof. S. S. Myers, teacher
of voice culture at the Normal School
delivered an oration on "The Battle
of Gettysburg " Prof. Myers was in
the battle of Gettysburg, his parents
residing there at the time the climax

Under normal conditions the work
of the county agent has been fraught
with splendid results but under pres-
ent conditions the value of this work
can hardly be estimated. It has been
a hard matter to get our farmers to
fully appreciate the value of the free
bulletins that are constanly being is-
sued by the Department of Arigcul-
ture, and the county agent is not only
bringing the facts contained in these
bulletins to the attention of the farm-
er but he is making demonstrations
that are convincing the farmer that
scientific and intensive farming pays.
Now that the nation is facing a great
crisis that will likely result in an un-
usual demand for food products, the
suggestion and aid of the county-
agent will be invaluable. It is the
desire of the Climax-Madisonian to
co-operate in any way possible with
the agents and rc|K rts of the work
being done will be given prominent
space in the paper, as we feel that it
is an important work and should re-
ceive more general recognitionn.

Compares Address of
Wilson With Lincoln 's
Ottawa, Canada.— "President Wil-
son's message is one of the most im-
portant contributions since Lincoln's
time to the literature of freedom and
■ Sir Wilfrid Laurier de-
in a statement made here. "It
is greatly inspiring to the free people
of the world w ho are battling for the
rights of civilization against tyranny,
"The entrance of the largest dem-
ocracy of the world into the arena
completely extinguishes any fleeting
hope of v.ctory that Germany may
have foolishly held, and if, as I hope
and believe, it tends to shorten the
conflict, it is a great humanitarian
"To the Canadian people the event
is one of very considerable import-
ance. It means that the people of
fight shoulder to shoulder in a com-
mon cause and from that we may
naturally expect closer friendship and
sympathies with all the benefits that
will flow therefrom.
"The President's action will carry
all the more weight because it was
not dictated by sudden impulse. It
was the deliberate expression of what
had become an imperative duty. Like
Lincoln in the summer of 1862 who,
tho resolved to abolish slavery, calm-
ly submitted to many clamorous re-
bukes from impatient abolitionists
and waited for the most opportune
moment, the President also waited,
and he has now the proud satisfac-
tion of unanimous support from all
sections of the American people, the
German element not excluded.
"As to the language of the Presi-
dent it is on the highest level, both
in thought and in expression, and is
simply beyond praise."

"Topnotch Quality." You will nev-

How to Help Nail
Up a Church Door
Nail No. L — Do not go to church
when the weather is too warm — a
is not beneficial to
will suffer through sympathy.
Nail No. 2. — Do not go to church
when the weather is too cold; there is
no money — except for the doctor — in
church drafts. Remember, that peo-
ple are more liable to get cold in a
church than elsewhere.
Nail No. 3.— Be sure to be late. If
you do not impress people with your
importance, you may with your ap-
pearance. On that account take a
front seat, scowl because the service
has begun — then pray.
Nail No. 4. — Take an interest in
everything but the service; the minis-
ter and choir will attend to that, that
is what they are there for. Take suf-
ficient interest to notice all mistakes
and tell them to everybody.
Nail No. r . — Be sure to put the
smallest piece of money possible in
the plate. This will give you the
right to find fault to an unlimited
Nail No. 6.-Don't fail to forget the
hour of meeting for church work.
This is very encouraging to the min-
ister. Find fault with everything
that has been done and refuse to do
anything because you are not at the
head of it, or, at least, have not been
consulted. If the venture is a suc-
cess, then say: "Look what we have
lone." If it is a failure, say, "I had
nothing to do with it."
Nail No. 7.— Be sure and tell the
minister his faults. Let it be known
far and w ide that he will not compare
favorably with his predecessor; it will
surely come to his ears. Humble
him if you can; he may be getting
Nail No. 8.— On no account send
the minister word when you are ill.
He should know all about it. It is
enough to send for the doctor.After he
calls tell him you were ill, and how-
he neglected you.
Nail No. 9. — Arrange all of your
baptisms, weddings, funerals, etc.,
without consulting the minister. He
has no right to make engagements
that will conflict with your arrange-
ments, and if he has made them, he
should break them — for you.
With the election only a few
months off it is high time that the
candidates were shelling the woods.
Ought to put up a few cards on trees
fence posts and other public places.
But what is better than this is put
your ad. in this paper and tell the
people what you intend to do for
them. The people want to know for
what you stand. If you are standing
only for the office and salary, then
they don't want you. Such a man is
high at any old salary.

At the Front
Since the advent of the United
States into the great world war, much
courage and renewed vigor seems to
have permeated the ranks of the al-
lied forces, and in France, England
and Russian great ovations and
ed in a death struggle to free them-
selves from the cruel, ruthless and in-
human grasp of autocratic power and
force. A number of South American
countries — nearly all of them — since
the proclamation of war issued by
this country, have severed diploma-
tic relations with Germany, and those
countries which stand out as neutrals,
according to reports, are most friend-
ly to the United States and fully rec-
ognize the justiceness of her acts.
Messages coming from abroad, state
that the American flag is now being
carried by the armies of France and
floats serenely from many buildings,
those gallant soldiers and noble peo-
ple, who have fought so bravely to
maintain thier honor and integrity
against the inquisition of cruel force.
Sprains and Strains Relieved.

dy handy. For the pains of grippe

Women Voters in Ark.
Of the many recent grants of par-
tial suffrage to women, that in Ar-
kansas is most curious. There, by a
bill just signed, women are to have
viual rights with men in primaries.
They must pay poll tax, swear to sup-
lort party candidates, and otherwise
possess the qualifications exactly of
The logic of this seems a trifle
strained, particularly the requirement
that the newly enfranchised women
must swear to support their party
nominees, which they may not do
without the right to vote at elections.
Yet they gain a practical advantage,
for the primaries in that State are.
in effect, the elections. Last fall
.'ote for presidential electors was:
Democratic, 112,000; Republican, 4H,-
KK); for Governor, Democratic. 122,-
100; Republican, 43,000.
Thus, the women who participate
in the primaries and exercise their

Spoke to Good Crowd
Thos. H. Collins, of Madison coun-
ty, spoke here to a good crowd Mon-
day afternoon on "Farming and the
Importance of County Farm Agents."
He made a capital talk and told of
the many advantages to be derived
from having a man in the county to
demonstrate farming in a practical
and up-to-date way— a man who had
tudied the subject and given much
time to the practice. The Federal
government pays half the salary of
800. Mr. Collins gave reasons why !.•'
county could afford to be without one
and seems to have impressed his
hearers that he was right. The fol-
lowing committee was appointed to
present a petition to the farmers of
court for an allowance of $!KH) a year
for a county agent: Messrs. W. P.
Grimes, W. P. Givens and W. O. Wal-

I nder Section 3503, Ky. Statutes, 1
hereby return to you without my ap-
proval, the Ordinance passed by the
Board of Council at the regular
ing April 5, 1917, placing a
Tax of $15.00 per day on itinerant
Peddlers and Merchants taking or-
ders by sample for future delivery.
This Tax being prohibitory, I am
clearly of the opinion that it is un-
constitutional and against public pol-
icy and would also involve the city in
endless litigation in the way of dam-
age suits, etc.
I h ive discussed th.
various attorneys and the
of opinion is that the ordinance will
not stand the test of the law. For
the e reasons I hereby veto said or

miles to every gallon of gas. The Contest Board of the A. A. A. certifies to

have shown equal capacity there.
And this car can be bought for
a price several hundred dollars
less than others that have shown
