custom of the majority in the House especiallyduring present Administration are to consider all measures on grounds of party necessity and party expediency and the dictum of the able haresidentguide The treaty has been before the Senate out and before the public for nearly a year but its vital detects have only lately been laid bare In the Senate and debate that preceded the adoption of Davis amendment there were startling discoveries that seemed to be sudden They would have been over looked by a body that was guided solely by what the Executive Department and the bosses representing it happened to want Discussion has developed but more things wrong than have been cured by the Davis amendment and there will be further changes Indeed the treaty may be practically wiped out Its failure will draw a flood of tearS from the eyes of any true Amer die icanThe amendment was adopted by a vote of 65 to 17 Only twelve Republicans and four Democrats voted in the negative In this

Magaliesberg It is not a great victory for the Boers that a force of 3000 men overwhelmed the gallant lit band thoughitindicatesthatGene- mentadid not take sufficient care of men poor scouting being shown and mens ammunition givingout The that an advance force of Boers were in Khaki uniforms was a justifiable stratagem but tt explains a part the surprise The Boers are great fighters and they distinguishing themselveS now as alway but there is no reason to believe that Gens De Wet and Botha will be to hold out forever The British ve 210000 soldiers under arms in South Africa and will eventually wear the enemy by sheer force of numbers If in no other way British obstinacy is as unduring as Boer obstinacy in the long run must come out the winner The Boer tactics are now un pressingItbem hard it is to catch a fleeing enemy we found in capturing Geronimos bands it was finally accomplished The disadvantages of the country to the pursuers were as great as in the Transvaal and the American Indian was the equal of any irregular lighter in the world Some time De Wet will be unable ro get fresh horses and then must in the last ditch or surrender The Boers are winning the admiru tion of the world for their desperate bravery but not for their wisdom It part of a good soldier to keep up a losing fight and that is exactly what Gens Botha and De Wet are doing CourierJournal Bad News in a Dream Hot Springs Ark Dec UThe sudden death last week of the Misses aggie and Emma Lienen popular young ladles of this city was a great shock to a large circle of friends But a most singular sequence to their misfortunes is the fact that although the distressing news was withheld un this morning from Mrs Lienen mother of the youcg ladies who is at deaths door at the Catholic infirmary had been apprised of the fact in a or dream last night rThe second daughter to die was buried today the first having been laid Wrest Saturday On the death of the first it was deemed best not to apprise the motner of it until she gut better but after the death of the second it was thought best to break the news to her and a party of friends called this morning at the infirmary on that mission but to their amazement the mother address ed them on the subject first and said My daughters are both dead and burled no need of keeping it from me Mrs Lieuen then told of a strange dream which came to her last night in which she was apprised of the fact When her friends entered her room she at once divined their mission and relieved them of the unpleasant duty of telling her They were

COMMERCIAL CLUB farTheTake Steps to Promote the Interest of the Town and County ANOTHER MEETING FRIDAY NIGHT Last Tuesday night an organization was affected in the courthouse and was styled The Adair County Com i mercial Club Mr L B Hurt was elected Chairman and Prof A II Bal I oror laws for its government and to report nighttIt is not necessary to make an ex tended argument as to the worth of such an organization for it is an ad mltted fact that in union there is strength Thttivery fact that Adair countya good section of country peo citizensdpracticable and desirable business f cilities is witbih itself sufficient argument to arouse the energies of u- upleto bring about unity of autlo that will work tor the general good It is therefore the aim the intention this organization to advance the interest of Columbia and Adair county This can be done in many ways and w will not attempt to forecast any cerI tale results but Just now there are two questions two steps toward leaving the mud that may be accomplished by an Bdaly1r pike from Columbia to some point un the Cumberland river and extending an appropriate invitation to the promo ters of the to be builtj from Nashville through Kentucky toItpe Ohollne The people of this count to some extent have tired of railroa talk but that does not signify that we to remain forever without railroad facilities There are many reasons I why a road should be built and evlIdence is accumulating to show and con the most skeptical that it wlIlatdone in the near future bUt it is not rtain by any means that it will come through this county As we understand Adair county is directly be tween the two objective points but theres many a curve made in railroad g The time for organization is now the time for action will follow As to the Pike that has been agt ted for many years but agitation not always bring desired results That it is a question well worth consider tion an enterprise that would yield handsome profits and that it is within the limits of reasonable efforts are ad mitted by every business man in this part of the country who has lmvestl its cost and our resources for buil ing The organization of a Commercial purposecof eain

The Christmas TreeI1 Says an enthusiastic is mother I don t believe there is anything on the face of the earth that gives more pleasure to the average child than a Christmas tree It does make a good deal of trouble for the elders bntsure ly it is worth while One is only a child such a little while and one is cegrownuppeople are very well satisfied to have our yearly presents just given to us but surely we all can remember how the value of the gifts once increased in proportion to the way they were given Was anything more delightful than emptying a stock especially when each thing was rapped up and tied The presents were so much more desirable that way than if they had just been laid out on a chair or table And if they came on a Christmas tree words cannot express how much that en hanched their value Surely that childish delight repaid all the hard work that tell to the elders share and the remembrance of it now goes a long way to lighten the work of it all for our own small boys and girls A big tree is glorious but after all the Christmas we always looked back on as the very best was the one where we each had a little tree of our They were from about six inches highI for the baby up to three feet for er They were planted in lovely pots and decorated with little bits of candles and cornucopias on each tree i tile pets and no single one was forgot ten Every dog cat rabbit guinea pig or doll had a gift with its ow named marked on the outside Truly that was a Christmas I only wish I had nine little rascals to make all the happiness for and the means to do it Children are
