B. Willi,, who died at Ua 
home in Crab Orchard. Ky.. April 9, 
was a native of Madison county and 
the last of a law family. He was 
born December, 1848, and was the 
\vungest of eleven crJTJien of John 
and Sasan Baker Willis, pioneer citi- 
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

office efficiently and honorably.

of Richmond by" President Cleveland, 
holding that office for eight vears. In 
this position, as in all others, he was 
faithful and pleased the patrons of 

He was a kind father, an affection- 
ate husband, a loyal friend and an 
upright, progressive citizen. He re- 
ceived all the degrees of Masonry 
from Entered Apprenticeship to 
Knights Templar in the local bodies, 
always manifested a marked interest 
in the progress of, as well as a belief 
in. the usefulness of the order. He 
was buried in the Richmond cemetery

persons who have any old army rifles 
or other gun« that have seen service 
to loan then to the College in order 
to fit up a company until they can get 
their equipment from the government.

Flag Raising 

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 
oratory flowed. 

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 
Cynthia Davison, and the manner in 
which the school children sang was 
most inspiring and elevating to every 

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 
was reached in the great battle that 
area fought between the North and 
South and the destiny of the nation 
was settled. He was but a mere boy, 
an inquisitive boy at the time, and he 
give a glowing description of the 
haul fought battle and the impression 
it made upon him. His speech was 
greatly appreciated by all who heard 

moments later. 

At half past eight o'clock Mr. Bow- 
man called at the drug store of H. L. 
Perry & Son and bought two ounces 
of carbolic acid, stating at the time 
he had a crippled mule and wanted 
the acid to burn out the wound in the 
hoof. He got shaved at one of the 
barber shops and went home about 
ten o'clock. When he arrived at home 
he conversed with his wife, and in the 
course of his remarks he said: "Well, 
Talt beat me bidding on that contract. 
I don't see how he did. I bid as low- 
as I could afford to take it, but he got 

College Hill. 

A large and enthusiastic meeting 
was held at College Hill, Saturday 
afternoon at two o'clock. About one 
ii'i.idred farmers, their wives and 
daughters, attended this meeting and 
great interest was manifested. The 
meeting was addressed by Mr. Ben 
Hoggs. County Farm Agent, and Mr. 
C C. Thomas. The people of the Col-

Then he returned to the house. When 
his wife admitted him, he walked

Important Work 

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."

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 
spiritual health 
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 

country by 
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.

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 
male voters. 

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 
lew rights will actually aid in deter- 
nining the personnel of officialdom, 
mi it seems reasonah.- to expect that 
ifter a short itme full suffrage will 
•ome to them. In any case, this 
'oreak in the "solid south" with its no- 
torious prejudice against woman suf- 
frage, is an indication of the growth 
of the movement to enfranchise wo-

We do not know who Homer McKee 
happens to be, but certainly Homer 
MiKee's prayer, as published by the 
Kansas State Board of Health, is 
something that would t* worth while 
for all of us to consider; and if we 
commit the principle to heart we can 
not KO far astray. Hete it is: 

Teach me that 60 minutes make an 
hour, 16 ounces one pound and 100 
cents one dollar. 

Help me to live that I can lie down 
it night with a clear conscience, with- 
out a gun under my pillow and un- 

whom I have brought pain. 

(irant. I beseech Thee, that I may 
. arn my meal ticket on the square, 
uid in doing thereof that I may not 
stick the gaff where it does not be- 


I  ea fen me to the jingle of tainted 
money and the rustle of unholv skirts.

I didn't have much faith In It. but I

Scarcity in draft horses is indicated 
by an advance of from $75 to $100.00 
in the value of choice ones.

last week for $400. 

It is now time to select and prepare

your stock and then expect them to

attention and lots of it. 

At a recent sale of Percheron

of $412 was received. 

Work horses and mules are scarce 
in Central Kentucky, according to re- 
ports. Within the past week we have 
heard of several persons wanting to 
purchase work horses, but could not 
find desirable animals.

The past two weeks have been busy- 
ones for the farmers in the tobacco 
growing belt. The backward season 
has caused much anxiety on the part 
of growers and they are avail-

In many of the Blue Crass counties 
an inc reased acreage of tobacco will

Just what the prospects of a wheat 
crop in Kentucky ate is a matter of 
-l-Mulation. Wheat fields generally 
are very spotted and in some cases 
there HMM to lie little growth. The 
eaily BKafc of spring has brought out 
many fields though and farmers in 
•general are more encouraged than 
they wi re some time back. If the 
triio.l weather continue.-, prospects may 
be viewed with more certainty. 

Ust June there were over 21.000

The practice of planting seeds and 
performing similar farm operations 
according to superstitious "signs" or 
according to the moon are not based 
 n facts, according to the College of 
Agriculture. This statement is made 
following inquiries and the annual 
publication of such information in al- 
manacs and other printed matter 
widely distributed during the winter 
and spring mcnths. It will be a hard 
matter to convince some of our citi- 
zens that potatoes shuold be planted 
at any other time than in the dark of 
the moon. 

According to I-oon M. Eastbrook, 
chief of the Bureau of Crop Estim- 
ates, the acreage planted to early po- 
potato section of the South. In spite 
ti mated to be 188,000 as compared 
with 161,000 in 1916 — an increase of 
about 17 per cent. This estimate is 
based upon the reports to the Truck 
Crop Specialist of the Bureau of Crop 
Estimates from Virginia, \orth Car- 
olina, South Carolina, Florida, Ala- 
bama and Texas, the principal early 
potatoe sections of the South. In spite 
of the high cost of seed, plantings are 
increased in practically all sections 
except in Eastern Texas. 

If some farmers put the same in- 
terest in their farms as they do in 
other people's business, they would 
be better off. 

Scott T. Miller, of Chillicothe, Mo. 
recently sold ll.juacks at auction at 
an average of $301 . None of these 
jacks were over two years old. 

E. B. Welch, of Morton's Cap, Ky., 
sold an aged 1"  hand jack for $400; 
a four year old 16 hand jack for $325 
and two 14 hand mules at $100 and 

In Clark county, Columbus Reg- 
land bought a pair of mules for $270, 
and X. A. Adams sold a pair of heavy 
mules to Arnold Brookshire for $340. 
Heavy mules are in demand and the 
high prices are causing many sales 
to be made and work mules are 
sold off very close.

Every facility and assitance which the

U nder Section 3503, Ky. Statutes, I 
hereby return to you without my ap- 
proval, the Ordinance passed by the 
Board of Council at the regular meet- 
ing held April 5, 1917, placing a 
License Tax of $50.00 per year on 
laundries doing business in this city. 
I am clearly of the opinion that the 
people of Richmond should have the 
privilege of having their work done 
as cheaply as possible and wherever 
they choose, as competition is the life 
of trade. I am also of the opinion 
that this tax would be class legisla- 
tion and tend to build up a monopoly. 
For these reasons I hereby veto said

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- 
ker. — Stanford Interior Journal.

This Tax being prohibitory, I am

endless litigation in the way of dam-

Chalmers Sets New Mark 

In Flexibility and Economy 

i. pee J is a matter of state and city laws — not of motors. Why, 
racing or semi-racing machines which fret and fume at legal limits? Why 
is not the car of wide flexibility and moderate top speed the sensible car to buy? 
In Chicago, during the 24 hours from noon March 26 to noon March 27 a 
Chalmers 7-passenger stock touring car set a new mark for flexibility and 
economy. It traversed the dense "loop" traffic of Chicago, using high gear 
only, without stop of motor, attained a total of 5S6.8 miles and reeled off 14 
miles to every gallon of gas. The Contest Board of the A. A. A. certifies to 

as perfect condition at the end of 
mis gnna as at me Deginnmg. naa 
there been hills to climb it would 
have shown equal capacity there. 
And this car can be bought for 
a price several hundred dollars 
less than others that have shown 
no such flexibility or city econ- 

Here is a car capable of highest 
cane speed. That operated perfect- 
ly on high gear even from a stand- 
ing start at a traffic officer's signal. 
That ran like a watch for 24 hours 
and could have run an indefinitely 
longer time. That made the start- 
lingly economical figure of 14 miles 
to the gallon of gas. That was in 

Would you care for such a car? You can have its twin 
brother. You are invited to call and ride in the car.
