the way from Nazareth to Carmel and we made good time We were delayed a little in crossing the brook Kishou ne the mountain It is mud bottom and quicksand in places and we seemed to hit those places in cross ing Two of our party got over b the hardest I was the third t- try it My horse went down i the quicksand after a few ste and after making some heroic efforts to relieve himself success I was humane enough to relieve the pqqr fellow of abo pQQ pounds of his burden by step ping off on my hands and feet in the mud and water The poor an final was then able to get ont without further trouble and I wetter than when I started i IIWe Mer Crossfield was the next to undertake the and Thidownnot thoughtful enough to get off as I did and after a t emend ous effort his horse came out without any special damage to the rider except two wet feat The rest of the party moved down the stream a little and came over all rightThe Kishou is the same strew w refltowe crossed near the same said to myself

some time farmers living three miles south of town have been missing corn and from developments Friday night last there is no telling how much has been stolen For the past two weeks Mr Anderson Holladays crib was being emptied a little too quick to suit him and he concluded upon a plan to find the whys and wherefores for the disappearance of his corn Accordingly Friday night his son Ad who is abouttwenty years old stationed himself gun in hand a short distance from the crib and await ed developments It was but a short time until three or four negroes with a wagon and team appeared upon the scene and at once commenced to load the wagon Young Holladay watched a few minutes then fired upon the squad when every man took to his heels leaving the team which was recognized as the property of Brown Epperson Next morning blood wasI noticed about the crib and in a short time thereafter it leaked out that Tom Willis was lying at his home badly wounded The shooting of Tom fastened all the guilty parties and Brown Epperson Chas and TaltBrad shaw were arrested and lodged in jail The wounded man could not be removed but will be brought in later Abont nine hundred pounds of corn had been carried to the wagon when the shot was fired Other farmers in the neighborhood have been suffering from like depredations and there IsnoI way to estimate the amount of corn that has been stolen by this band of thieves All the parties will evidently be given a trip up the road Mr Nat Gaither who was a grandson of Dr Nathan Gaither who died in Columbia many years ago vis ited his old friends in this community last week he having resided here in his early manhood He is now a prom inent business man of Hopkinsville where he located soon after the close of the war between the States Our people regretted that he could not re main with them but two days as he was remembered as a very excellent young man Mr Gaither served in the Confederate army aud was one of the gallant soldiers who went out from Adair county During his stay here he related to us this incident that occurred during the war In 18C2 he was passing through Wayne county with his regiment His horse had given out and he was compelled to secure an other one He had an acquaintance in the county Mr James Jones with whose son Nat had been in college here and it was to him Mr Gaither told his troubles Mr Jones informed him that he did not have a horse to spare but that his daughter owned one that he would sell All right said Nat bring it out The price agreed upon was 8150 but Mr Gaither had only Confederate money and Mr Jones could not use it Buthe wanted Nat to have the animal and remarked I will take your note for the amount Toe note was executed and in 1871 after Mr Gaither had been elected Circuit Court Clerk of Christian coun ty the promise to pay was sent him and a check was immediately forwarded for principal and interest The State Board of Education hasI directed that all persons holding license to teach must take an examina tion in American litature Tbis is in accordance with an act of the last legislature which made provisions for the teaching of the branch Ameri can literature in common schools An other law provides that when new subjects are taught teachers must take an examination on these subjects There are a large number of teachers over the State holding what are term ed exemption license These are ob tained after teaching a certain num ber of years if the teacher holds a diploma from the State Normal College or has passed a certain examination which is intended to show the quallfi cations of a graduate of the State Nor mal All of these will have to report now for examination in American literature on questions submitted by the State Board The State Board of Equalization in session at Frankfort last week notified the County Judge and County Attorney of Adair that the realty of the county would be raised 7 per cent on the one hundred dollars unless they could be convinced

Sunday with three sermons during the day Large congregations heard Mr Dew through out and much good has been accomplished The Church has been greatly revived and six or seven more names added to its membership Sunday forenoon Mr Dew preached what many consider his best sermon during the series His subject was The Gospel of Sunshine He occu pied one hour the assembly glvinghim the closest attention His text was 1st Samuel 2316 He said in part Every Christian has a work to do As Jonathan strengthened David so we should strengthen each other I be lieve in the Gospel of SunshineIn the gospel of helpfulness Let us bring joy and gladness and sunshine into the lives of our fellows while they live Many keep the flowers until their friends die Dead men cant scent roses Do not keep the Alabaster box es of your love and tenderness sealed up until your friends arc dead No no If you have but a word of cheer Speak it while I am alive to hear Whatsoever you have to do for your fellow man do it now Dont wait until he is dead and then talk about what you ought to have done Dead opportunities have no resUrrec- tion This is your opportunity to make the world better Will you use it for God and humanity An old preaoher said I shall pass through this world but once thercfcorc want to do all the good I can There is an old Arab proverb which reads Beware how thou dealest with God or thy brother for thou shalt never meet him at the same crossing of ways again Jonathans visit was a little thin from his standpoint yet how it helpe David Despise net the day of small things The sunshine composed o single rays and the rain falls out of the clouds in single drops yet what a mighty result their combinations produce We all need help Wo all crave sympathy If you cant do what some one else might then do the best you can The sin of many Christians is the sin of waiting for some one else to do what they ought to have done Let me tell you a secret today The world is dying for kindness Mans Inhu manity to man makes countless millions mourn The human heart craves sympathy + it yearns for love How are we to reach the lost sin ning world and bring it to Jesus I answer by the sympathy by love Strive to make the world better Strive to make life a nobler divine thingHe spoke of several conversions brought about by kindness includin the reformation of John B Goff th noted temperance

in return for which they offer to give up possession of the buildings and records but the Democrats have refused to even treat with them about the matter Meantime however costs against the usurpers
