better roads if its provisions are faithfully and honestly administer- ¬ ed This measure is truly and wholely the product of the Court and we have heard it said ttiat it should be called the Jeffries Law since Squire Jeffries in ¬ troduced it one year ago At any rate we trust that every man in Adair coun ¬ ty will read and understand its provis ions pass on its merits honestly and aid in its appreciation to the ends NUMBER THE M Mr Sam Feese who was returning from Campbellsville last Saturday with a loaded wagon met with a very serious accident on the Green River hill He was walking along
