Jeffersonian's Mammoth Ring Contest this week developed the fact that "Uncle Rube," of "Truck Patch" fame, has been nominated in the second district. His friends will doubtless try to make him win just to find out who he is and because they would like to show their appreciation of his good letters to The Jeffersonian. Several of the county's most popular young ladies have been nominated and a lively and friendly rivalry is expected to result. Miss Lynch in the Second takes the lead with Miss Skiles a close second. The Third District is showing a little interest, Miss Jessie Young, of Okolona, and Miss Eula Bates, of Smyrna, having been nominated.

Vol. 3. No. 8. CLASSIFIED $50 DIAMOND RING. Bv M. F. Johnson. The onion question is a rather strong one, but the price has been a rather weak one. The result of the efforts of the growers in this neighborhood to ship their own onions is not yet definitely known as returns for the last cars have not yet been received. There is no doubt but that if the farmers would organize properly that they could save much money in marketing their crops. The peach growers of Georgia have saved hundreds of thousands of dollars in selling their crop. The time for organization is now, so that the organization may be on a business basis for next season's crops. Three classes will be enemies to a farmers organization. First: The shyster and dishonest commission men who like cormorants have sucked the life out of the farmers for years. Second: Dishonest, designing and incompetent men who will seek positions as manager, agent, etc. Third: The dishonest member of the association who for the love of money will pack his products dishonestly and thereby injure the sale of the products of the association as a whole. The big task of an organization will be to protect itself against these classes. Don't go at an organization too rapidly, but by beginning now move slowly and surely and make as perfect an organisation as possible, safeguarding ejrery interest. There should be a local organization in a number of localities in the Teutdre of ihiei Would-B- e Whn Entered House of Robert Stout Last Thursday Morning at 2 O'clock. On last Thursday morning at 2 o'clock Mr. Robert Stout, a well known farmer living about three miles east of Jeffersontown, had a thrilling experience with a burglar. He was awaked from his sleep and on opening his eyes beheld a negro kneeling beside his bed and running his hand under Mr. Stout's pillow. The latter made a leap at the burglar, y who made a quick out of the door, which he had propped open for just such an imergency. The two had a lively race for about one hundred yards, Mr. Stout being barefooted and in his night clothes. The negro cut across a corn field after leaving the yard, and Mr. Stout ran into a barbwire fence, badly scratching his face and hands. This stopped his pursuit, for when he had loosened himself the thief was out of sight. Mr. Stout returned to the house and telephoned County Patrolman Tyler and neighbors of the presence of the thief in the neighborhood. Mr. Tyler got out of bed, and with Patrolman Schaefer and several of his neighbors, went in search of the negro. Though bruised and footsore, Mr. Stout participated in the chase. The negro was tracked across the corn fields for several miles, but he could not be found. Mr. Stout says he would not know the negro should he see him, as it being dark he could not recognize his features. Mr. Stout kept a shot gun in his room, and the negro had removed this out in the yard, and returned for the money which Mr. Stout kept under his pillow, as the negro thought. get-awa- capes Burning Good News Letter.

Near Jeffersontown. e Zach Zehnder, near Jeffersontown. was the first to submit to the tuber culin test on his herd of twenty-thre- e dairy cows last week. The test was made under the directions of Dr. F. T. Eisenman. State Veterinarian, as sisted by Dr. M. A. Purdy, of Shelby ville, and Dr. Wallace, of Bowling Green. No cattle were found to be affected with tuberculosis. Besides the Zehnder herd that of Henry and N'iemler, Sr., at Thirty-fourtCedar streets, was inspected. h The Prospect Christian church had a narrow escape from burning Sunday night when a chandelier, consisting of six lighted lamps, fell from the ceiling. There was no explosion: eery light but one was extinguished, but, strange to say, the oil on the floor did not become ignited, and the loss of the chandelier and damage to the carpet was all that suffered. Last Saturdav afternoon at o'clock a chartered car, packed with Jeffersontown citizens and those from surrounding districts in favor of a consolidated model school for Jefferson county, amid the noise and music of the band, composed of the bovs of the Louisville School of Reform, left this place for Louisville to attend the meeting of the Board of Education at the courthouse. Cpon their arrival there they found hundreds of citizens from Middletown and all parts of the county present to show that a consolidated school was needed and desired. Never before was so much interest manifested in Kentucky (the state noted for its illiteracy) for better education. It demonstrated the fac- t- as far as the people are concerned that it is time Kentucky was redeeming herself. The board, however, did not think so. Two members of the board, Dr. Breidenthal. and one Sternberg, both little and loud, and the County Superintendent, were bitterly opposed to consolidation. The meeting was called to order by the chairman and JAMES A.

He made a speech in favor of accepting , the offer, and should the motion have been made clear to him. would have doubtless voted for it. Dr. Wetherby delivered a line speech and charged that in turning over the money to trie division boards the County Board had proceeded contrary to the new school law. His address was applauded for several minutes by the large audience. He made a fearless stand for better education in Jefferson county and after the meeting adjourned received many congratulations. Mr. H. A. Hummel was true to hisconvictions and citizens of his district who urged him to stanet up for a moelel school. He repeatedly asked the board to allow Mr. H. N. Reubelt, president of the Jefferson County Bank, to make a speech and give the public sentiment of his division, but the little fellow cried, "out of order." and Mr. Reubelt was not permitted to speak. There is quite a great deal of opposition in many sections to building this school, many residents of districts not likely to secure it saying that thev are not willing to pay taxes and have the money spent in .mother part of the county. However, the majority of the citizens, realizing the great need of better education in this county, say that consolidation is a good thing and that it will or later.
