AND ITSJJ TRESS It is always difficult for the younj mistress to retrain from apologies during those first halcyon mouths or years of her home making She is anxious that all should be perfection immaculate beyond cavil in every particular and her own eye is so criti cal knowing as she does just where faithful Jane had to hurry over the sweeping and d stlnthlt she can scarcely refrain from apologizing to her guest A lesson may be learned by those who care to lean it froth the story told of a notable housewife and her paster The reverend gentleman was a guest for the evening meal the table groaned with its weight of good things to eat cake as light as it could bet homemade preserves and pickels delicious homecurea ham and snow Hake biscuit golden honey and richest cream everything perfect in its own line yet from the tttae the hostess poured the fragrant coffee and passed it with au apology for its lack of clarity and strength the kept it up never had she served so poor a meal her bread Wa5 ot as usual the biscuit not near so flaky that batch of Pickles had been spoiled her preserves were not fit to eat and so on and on until the brother in Christ astonished and shamed her by calmly pushing his plate from him its heaping untouch edslid told her hb could ntifi possibly eat such food as she wafe bffelUfe Him f iOt 1 i J if were not tit th eat The good- man knewlhe failing of his parishion ers and took this sharp and vigorous method of breaking her of such an enibarassinc habit As a matter of fact we all know that owing to the unfailing total pravity of inanimate objects every think has a fashion of turning out the contrary to what we hope that is our cakes and pies and biscuit but we must learn not to apologize The unhappy guest is twlxt the devil and the deep sea he must either agree with you thereby exciting your ever lasting dislike or politely protest that everything is quite perfect thereby perjuring his immortal soul by lying Dent place him in such a predicament lest be turn apd rend you as did the pastor his hostess d GRVSOME RECORD The Chicago Tribune which keeps account so far as it can of murders hangfng and lynchlDgs in this country

useful life trussing over the silent river last Wednesday evening about 7 oclock So far as we know his whole life was spent In Adair county and his walk before his fellows was that of strictly honest man He had opinions and he expressed them and that right he accorded to his fellow man The death of Mr Pile was not a sur prise to his family and friends as he was confined to his bed several months before the end came Bad he lived until the 25th of next December he would have been 83 years old He was a man who looked after his own interest but he was ever ready to help those in distress and what he did was done willingly his actsof kindness were never followed by vain boast tog He was a man who was very fond of dlsItressthem As an instance of his fidelity in 1873 two of his neighbors and friends were stricken with that fatal disease cholera but Mr Pile was not deterred remaining and waiting upon them un til their misery ended in death The deceased was three times mar tied his last wife being Miss Lizzie Flowers with whom he happily lived for fortyeight years Besides the widow eight children survive seven by the last wife and oneMrs J W Hurt by his second wife His first wife

Friday forenoon con ducted by Rev JesseeL Murrell assisted by Revs Shelley Gordon San didge and Granger The interment was in the city cemetery and in token of the high esteem in which the deceased was beld in this community many relatives and friends followed the remains to their last resting place It is needless to say that the sorrow ing wife and children have the sympa thy of this entire community ARE UNION This year is the 100th annlversity of the founding of Columbia and wehav heretofore called attention to it and suggested that we celebrate the clos ing year of the first century of this town We may be mistaken concerning the good resulting therefrom but to our mind it would be productive of both pleasure and profit In the first place it would be a great treat to a ma jority of tbe people of Columbia and Adair county W meet in purely a cial manner It would also boa greater pleasure to meet the many who have left the confines of our county limits and who would be induced to return on such an occasion if the proper ef tuats and arrangements were made We suggest that some of the older cit izens of this town head a meeting to bring about such a reunion If there is a man in tills town who believes in this celebration and believes that it could be made a success we tender him space in this publication to set forth his views and to layout a definite plan of action We believe that this im portant event should be celebrated by our own people and that we should make an effort to get every exAdair county person to come into our midst and join the procession of a regular handshake time We could arrange with the Railroads leading into Louisville to sell thirty days tickets proba bly at one fare and the L 3 N would be as liberal from that city to Camp bellsville as it has heretofore been when seeking to Induce travel A barbacue would be in order and speech es and music should be abundant While we could nut entertain our visiting relatives and friends on as grand a scale as some communities yet we could show as much genuine hospi tality asany section beneath the sun Such meeting would present an op portunity for those who have gone to different parts of the country to meet their friends and relatives of other sections around the old hearth stones It would carry the old back to childhood days and refresh their memories of the sweet long ago The real cost would not necessarily be heavy and this com munity is amply able to sustain It The Newsis ready to dolts part and while it is young in years it will not shirka duty or dodge a responsibility The

proposition bas been considered for some time and quite an interest has been manifested both by tbe advocates of the sale and those opposed to it We indorse any move that will advance the interest of this town or add to the convenience of its inhabitants We hoped to have had an exchange in operation in this town last year but It fail cd to materialize We welcome its ad vent this year and endorse the action of the Council in their efforts to secure t- belltiIQee are believeIown fromjthey insist that the sale is not neces haveIof property and business tbat the town should own and operate an exchange but inasmuch as her treasury is not overburdened with cash and that a high rate of tax would be necessary to create such a fund as would be need ed to build and equip an exchange we therefore believe that the Council is taking the only logical steps to bring about the desired convenience sought The order to sell the franchise Is hedged in by such binding clauses as will secure to the people the best ser vice for the smallest amount of pay In our judgment it requires a sufficien cy from the party who will become the purchaser and we have no fears that its provisions will fall to bring antis factory results to the people of Colum bia We have read the order and find it clear and positive except that part which empowers the Council to accept any bid it desires and to reject any it chooses The order requires a certain sum to be deposited by every party who desires to bid and this must be done before he can lawfully bid It further requires that the sale is to be made to the highest and best bidder and stipulates thata 820000 bond must be made by the successful bidder tbat he will meet the provisions of the con tract As we understand it the order of sale Is so made and arranged to secure solvent bidders If this be true then the reservation to reject or accept my bid should be sidetracked and let it go straight to the highest bidder Under the order if the highest bidder is rejected the sale will be equivalent to a private deal for the making of a bond of 20000 is tbe equivalent of sol vency under the order Sell the franchise and sell it to the highest bidder and then noaccusation of playing favorite or lightly esteem ing a public trust can be made The old adage thatthe longest pole should knock the persimmon a good one MARRIED On last Wednesday the 30th

on the 28th of April they held a public meeting In the courthd use and passed resolutions appealing to the good sense and con science of those engaged in its sale to cease and obey the will of the

the Bible was a thing of beauty and a joy forever I first sounded the loud trebbrle oer Egypts dark waters in the classic con fines of Polk county NC I found that the festive Tarheel of this sec lion regarded the making of whisky as the chief end of man and book learning or whatsoever kind as an abomination to the Lord The woric of selling Bibles was regarded with disfavor and I was regarded as a despised publican in theservlcc of Uncle 3amand for all revenue spies the motto was shoot him on the spot With the zeal of Peter the Hermit I sought men and sous of men and tried to take orders for

we Uoisaed this territory we learned that Alexander county was in spirit pal darkness We moved on the works and found it even so The county site was Taylorville and was composed of of a court house two stores a black smith shop a postofflce and a popula tion of300 loafers Hogs bathed in the streets and the town cow was an ject of abject woe Like Polk the people of Alexander voted Republican early and often and here was an other spot where the still worm dlcth not and the fire is not queccned They bad hears that there was a wild desolate spot somewhere out West known as Kaintucky They had al so beam that the water there was not fitten to drink and that the fear or God was before no mans face The people who have a being in these mountains fairly dote on good water aud religion and reverently believe that the pure antI undefiled articles of water and religion are found no where else The preachers have a solemn visage and a santimunious whine that makes glad the pure iu heart and

won a great victory bya single move when tlil1tfnotOIiIbutalsoprovided for the removal of the sugar differential C The house Democrats are to be cone gratulated because they voted solidly for this measure As the bill Is now framed it suits neither the cane sugar trust or the beef sugar trust It is true it is not exactly what the people Inre rlbr direction r drivingsSpain out of the Western Hemisphere and as we arc not willing for Cuba to annex herself to day other nation we are under a moral obligation to treat her liberally with respect to trade re lations The only protest against re ciprocity came from the beet sugar in dustry but such a protest was to be expected The manufacturers of beet sugarlike other manufacturers have shown 3 disposition to look at legisla tion entirely from their own stand point and they have been consistent champions of every proposition that gave them a chance to get into the public treasury They have favored state bounties and national bounties and have clamored for high tariff They are no worse than other protected industries but they have been as insatiable as any They claim to represent the farmers but the farmers do not as a rule have stock In the factories and if a few far mers did hold stock they ought not ask fora special benefit at the expense of all other farmers Even if all the su gar tariff went to farmers it would go to comparatively few and would be significant as compared with the total burden borne by the farmers because or the high tariff system It is a mistake for members of con gress to urge a tariff on sugar on the theory tbathit we are to have a tariff on some things the farmer ought to have his share The farmer can nev er make as much out of a high tariff as he loses by it and ills a delusion to think that he can A farmer cannot oppose protection to others while he clafms It for hlmsell and the sooner all the farmers getout from under the protective system the sooner It will fall As long as beet hiigar is protect ed every factory will be a center for- tiS propagation or a kigh tariff senti ment but as Soon as too tariff is reduc ed im sugar the manufacturers ofsugar will help reduce the tarrff ou other things Democrats can therefore wel conic every step toward lower tariff no matter from what source it comes If we refuse a small reduction In the hope of a greater one or il we reject a proposed reduction because the adjust raeutof duties is nob equitable we suall make no progress It is the part of wisdom to take what reduction we can get and then set aSout to secure moreEvery brick removed weakens the wall every industry exposed to com pe tition will increase the demand for tariff reduction Cuban reciprocity is in the right direction the removal of the differential is a yet greater move and for such advance toward tariff re form thanks The Commoner WHYS THEY SLEPT A Missouri editor who had printed a country newspaper for many years took a walk through a graveyard and
