J. W. STOLL, Notary Public, Fayette County, Ky.
Commission expires March 12, 1906.
If you desire to have the business methods of this company ex
plained in detail with a view to investing money in its bonds call on
J. H. Westover at the Courier office. The bonds of this company
pay handsome profits. Investments can be made in small monthly
payments. The returns are sure and largely in excess of interest
rates. The compauy has $100,000,00 deposited with Secretary of the
State of Kentucky. It has complied with the insurance and invest
ment law in 34 states in the Union.you can buy a $500 gold bond and
Pay for it as you like in regular monthly payments. Let us explain
the matter to you,
John H. Westover, Agent.
The Courier has no interest in the
management of the Sheriff'" office in
this county except to see that equal and
exact justice is done to all, the ins and
outa just the same. That John J.
Cooke was a good Sheriff and managed
the affairs of his office with economy
none will gainsay. That Sheriff Shaver
is also a good Sheriff and is running the
office along economical lines we also De
heve. There has been some claim 'ad
vanced that the Sheriff's office under the
present administration in its first six
months has shown a saving of more
than $500.00. This claim does not seem
to be borqe out by the figures. The fol
lowing statement of the expenses of the
Sheriff's , office under the legime of
Cooke and Shaver for the last six
monthB of 1901, and the last six months
of 1902 has been prepared for public . -lion
in the Courier by one who ought to
know and we believe that the statement
is coirect. These figures show that tlieie
has been very little difference in operat
ing expenses of the office under the
present Sheriff J. R. Shaver and the
Ex-Sheriff J. J. Cooke.

This, however, does not include the
coat of posting tax executions, under
Cooke's term. As, under the law the
Sheriff is not required to post tax execu
tions. Neither does it include stamps
and stationer), now charged to Shaver's
account The boarding of prisoners un
der Cooke's term was always charged to
the sheriff's account. While under
Shaver's term the board of prisoners is
charged to a separate account,- called the

stated) Cooke collected $67,41017 of this

ments and corrections. Cooke also sold
tlm uronertv for back taxes, for the yean
1S92, 1893, 1894 and 1897. And was re
quired to execute about 6I3deeds, which
required considerable more work in the
Sheriff's office during the last six months
of 1901, than there was of the last six
months of 1902. So you can see at a
glance, that instead of Shaver running
the office lor $500 00 less than Cooke, it
it a mistake. If you take considera

The amount of boarding prisoners dur
ing Cocke's term was $215.27. Whib
during Shaver's ttrmil was $161.31.
Suppose we deduct them both from the
above accounts, and it haB cost $9.15
more to run the Sheriff's office for the
same length of time, under Shaver, than
it did under Cooke.
