The highest and greatest tribute that'we can pay to any man is to say of him that he is a man of his word. A man c'annot be a manly man unless he is also an honorable man. There is no manhood without honor, no character-without integrity, no life worth living unless it is based upon the fundamental and essential principles of honor, sincerity and loyalty. Make it your ambition to be a man of your word. Never make a promise that you are not absolutely able and willing at all times to stand by to the end. The world has no use for a liar, it despises deceit and hypocrisy. The only man who can gain and maintain the confidence of his fellowmen is the man who Ji at all times truthful and hones^the man whq is a man of his word.' Our readers will find in each Issue of The Dispatch two or three columns of “General News,’.’- giving'briefly the general news of the world in such shape that you can keep posted on what is going on generally. It is condensed news of what is going on arranged in" a form to keep you posted and acceptable as reading matter.

Among the regular special features are the markets, two patterns, Sunday-school lesson, the short «tory and a new installment each Week of the continued story. We know that if you will read every page of The Dispatch each week you will keep right up with the outside news and the county news as well and if you read every page each week you will get the most value for your §1 that you can get for a dollar at any other counter.

Campbellsville is to have a canning factory this summer. Three acres of ground o"f of the Theodore Abell farm has been secured and the stock all subscribed.

The only question about the success of the enterprise is getting enough stuff raised to keep the factoi^y running but' the promoters claim that they have enough stockholders who will raise sufficient stuff to keep the factory running.
