We have received from Mr. G. H. Gossom, General Secretary of the Y.M.C.A., at Long Beach, Cal., an invitation to lunch at the Y.M.C.A. building there. We gladly accepted the invitation, but can only be present in spirit. The young men have our best wishes. Homer Gossom is a Trimble County boy, one of the many scattered abroad. It is a delight to our people to hear of the now and then, and especially is it a pleasure to hear of their success and of the good works they are doing. Certainly there is not a better work that holding together the boys and young men in Christian union. The Y.M.C.A. at Long Beach seems to be exceptionally prosperous and to be doing unusually good work.

Keltner, of Bliss, Adair County, and brought 17.10, when sold at the Main Street House. It was of a common quality, being known as hogshead of "ground leaf". Therefore the quality of the growing crop cannot be justly judged from this hogshead-Ex.

At the annual board of the Burley Tobacco Society and the Burley Tobacco Company, held at Lexington, Tuesday, it was ordered that a final distribution of all the pool funds remaining in the hands of the society be made as soon as an order of court settling various tax suits against the society have been entered.
