Everybody was then invited to partake of the good things to eat and this movement here as being a worldwide one and that people all over the United States were watching the results of the proposition to build a school here, according to the plans provided for by bonding the counties. He said the county bonding proposition was the only way to place Kentucky where she belongs educationally, and said that the graded Beautiful Site of Five Acres Donated to Jefferson tovn School Splendid Address, music sanu Good Things To liat.

Thousands of dollars were spent in building macadam streets and sidewalks, in grading and in otherwise improving the property. A noticeable feature of the sale was the fact that local people purchased the greatest number of th lots, the majority of whom bought for the investment, A number of Louisville people also purchased lots. Rev. L. K. May. termer pastor of the Methodist church here, now al Irvingtou, bought two beautiful lots. The day was ideal and a fair size crowd was present. The greatest occasion ever known in .leffersontown. or in Jefferson county, so far as a progressive move me n t is concerned, took place Monday, June 12, when Jefferson Heights, in Jefferson the prettiest county, was sold at public auction by Geo. H. Fisher, of the tirui of (Jeo. Ninety H. Kisher Is. Co., Louisville. lots were sold at an average of a fraction over $200 aggregating over fix, 000. While the above amount seems; to be a large sum. it is a very low price for such a magnificent piece of Lincoln Way. the Bardstown and the Preston Street Roads, and then some, and this tax could be continued till all the roads leading from the city limits to the county line could be put I run sat e s in condition. the fiscal court will favor this plan and have the right to make the levy for the purpose, and I am sure it would benefit Louisville, the county and the state far more than ttie one mill from the dollar will damage any one. It fact the mill will return dividends a hundred fold. Our motto is, "United we stand, divided we fall." Let us stick by our count v paper, work together for good roads and schools, love God supremely and our neighbors as ourselves, anil we shall never fall. UNITED drink. After dinner E. R.
