does not yet complete the needs of the coun ty and we trust that the wisdom of this court will not permit this movement to stop until the field has been covered An important crossing is at Neatsville and a bridge should be built there just as soon as the county can do so KEMPIany antagonism to the bridge but came in on the proposition at the 11th hour moving that the vote be made unanimous POULTRY RAISING Early hatched pullets make the best winter layers One of the most beneficial foods for poultry is linseed meal The laying hens like a variety not only in the soft food but in the grain The guinea fowl is a great forager and destroys many insects that hens will not touch The hens will lay better and be better contented if supplied with a box of fine dry earth for a dust bathThe Leghorns are popular with those who do not desire to raise chicks they being nonsltters and good layers Poultry farming doesnt take a great deal of land but with good management the harvest comes every day In arranging the perches in the poultry house have them far enough away from the doors and windows to avoid drafts Soaked lime placed in the drink ing water will often cure hens of laying shelllees eggs

counties Entered at the Oolumbia Postofflceassecond Clasmnall matter WED APRIL 15 1903 THE PROCESSION HARCHES A Victory Won by the Advocates of Bridges Last week the Fiscal Court vats ed to build a bridge over Russells creek on the Stanford road and let the contract to the Champion Bridge Company of Ohio for 2 400 This question has been urged ful ly five years but from time to time it has been delayed for similar structures to be built at other places About five years ago our magistrates decided t o build bridges and the one to be built this year makes the fourth bridge We have been an earnest advocate of bridging the streams wherever needed and we desire to say that ono rejoices more over the re cent victory This bridge is to be built at a crossing in which we have a direct interest and while this is true yet it will accommo date a largo section of country and stands out as one of the needed im provemonts to mark the steps of progress now on in Adair county Our interest is such that we de sire to return our thanks to the majority part of the Court and the County Attorney who supported it appretciation to the unfaltering devotion of those who aided otherwise in securing its building The pessi mist may be heard but in this ad vanced age iio is a small factor and can not check or change the onward march that leads out of the wilderness of inconveniences that environs country life The time has come when every county State and municipality must wake up to the importance of improve meets and those deaf to such de mands will reap the reward of the slothful The day is here whon a magistrate must put his county above his district when he must give to others if he would expect aid to his We are glad to statethnt AdAir county has a Court not surpassed if equaled by any county in Southern Kentucky It is true that on the bridge question the Court has been dividend and in tho last con test it stood as heretofore Those who favor bridges are in the majority being Wm C Wol ford John Eubank S P Sulli van James England and the Coun tyAttorneyThe t side was represent ed yYm Biggs11r H Kemp and the County Judge This contest shows and confirm the positions four officials on this question and murk in our judgment the lines between a move of progress and the old or dor of holding to the relics of long ago Wo desiro to say that the expenditures appropriations in the last few years areboing fairly divided in the course of events Squire J J England scored thp greatest victory of any magistrate that ever represented Elroy pro cinct He secured one half of the road appropriation which will amount to near 100000 Hero tofore that part of the county hi l almost been ignored in this mat ter but by good judgment and de mending his rights he secured more than any other man has darn for that part of the county Mr England voted to build a bridge last year he voted to build this year both being outside of his district which places him in the line of advancement and clearly shows that ho is a public spirited officialone who believes in bet tering public conditions throughout our county While Mr En gland was willing to build bridges forjthers he asked that his section should not be cast off Tho other magistrates who stood for im provements responded to his de mands and it ARB BugtaiuetH tjio utire court llriEngglnds proving his worth to his district and to tho entire county He has made many substantial friends by his open honest and fearless po sition taken in advancing the pub lie good Mr John Eubauks district re ceived the bridge this year besides the road work of last Mr Eu bank is the oldest member of the court and a man who is willing to put improvements wherever need ed He has stood the btorms for many years in official life and up to date his record is one of which he and his many friends should feel proud He has many sub stantial monuments that mark his official position so thoroughly endorsed by the people of this coun ty Every substantial jmprove ment has received his vote includ ing the courthouse the clock that keeps time the jail and all the bridgesMr P Sullivan secured for his section of country last year the bridge over Russells creek This however is in the bounds of Mr Eubanks lines but it was an improvement conceded to White Oak and should rightfully stand to the credit of Mr Sullivan In addition to this his district is to receive aid this year from the road funds sufficient to do some repair work Mr Sullivan is on record as favoring every move to better the county He is a bridge man and liberal enough to vote for one wherever needed regardless of ad verse comment He is conserva tive firm and believes in advance Wm C Woltord stands firm as a bridge man believing that no other improvements are so badly needed and that the good work should contiue until all the important crossings are bridged His district has been serve in this line by the bridge at Plum Point though it is in Mr Biggs district Mr Wolford has well and truly represented his section in the building of this bridge and the people of that part of the county truly appreciate his services and endorse his liberal course in aiding other parts of the county His record is marked by good judg ment and unswerving stability in advancing the interest of Adair countyMr Biggs and Mr Kemp still stand together and have voted against every bridge though they recognize the importance of such improvements they are not yet ready to leave their districts to aid others Mr Kemps district has fared well receiving a bridge at Milltown We are not advised of the amount of road money spent last year in these districts but presume they fared in common with others as the county judge was road supervisor and had the funds at his discretion Mr Loys district has no dan qorous streams and needs no bridges and just how much money was spent in the roads of that section last year is unknown to us At any rate the county judge is road supervisor and will doubtless see to it that a good part of the road levy will be spent in bettering the roads in that part of the county this year Again we say keep the good work going Every bridge built adds another star to your wise expenditure of public money and will in the end prove to be wise and of in estimable worth to this and future generations We desire to inform the Somer set Journal that we have no com plaint against Mr Beokham as a Democrat or as a Governor of the State We do not believe him to be the strongest man to pit against tho common foe We did not raise the eligibility question and can not silence it If Mr Beck ham becomes the nominee he will he forced to act in the defence and the party will bo in the same positionro man acquainted with the situation will deny this statement It is not a position to gain strength politically or other wise Wo believe the party is too sacred to surrender to the ambi tions of a mar we know must be defended from charges rather than have one who will lead the attack ing party in an open field We are for Mr Hendrick because we believo his nomination best for tho party That is tho sizeof it plain and

crop is one of the most valuable all the crops There are over 200000000 fruit bearing aj pie trees in the United States and these annually produce about 176000000 buabels Usually about 3000000 buu els are shipped abroad while the in tuc consumption is at the raleuf two Lu h els for each man woman and chld According to figures given out frm Washington and condensed by the Chicago InterOcean there are sixteen applegrowing States which produce 147289424 bushels of apples All the other States wHether produce only 8 107 802 bushels New York now stands first with 24111257 bushels Pennsj vania second with 24060651 bushels Ohio third with 20617480 bushtls Virginia lourth with 9837982 bushels and Illinois fifth with 9178150 bushels Ten years ago Ohio stood first among the apple producing States Michigan second and Kentucky third In the last decade however there has been heavy treeplanting In New York Pennsylvania Illinois Missouri Kan sas and Oklahoma The increase in the several States and Territories in ten years was 81641000 trees In the same ten years the apple crop increas ed to 82 per cent of all orchard fruits In value of orchard products Califor nia leads all other States 14526786 New York standing second Pennsyl vania third Ohio fourth Illinois fifth and Michigan sixth These six States with Indiana Missouri Virginia and New Jelsey raise 60 per cent of our orchard fruits measured by value Michigan stands first in prunes pears grapes oranges and lemons Of all the orchard trees in the United States 55 per cent are apple trees The apple Is not only the most popu lar of American fruits one it is one of the most heathf SCARING CHILDREN Some people make a practice of scaring children for own amusement and often to keep them from going out in the dark after night If you go into the dark boogers will get you Many a child has been crazed through intense fear and had to live and die a lunatic in a mad house Children look to older people for protection and if they are deceived they soon become wrecks and are blames for their worth lessness Be true to a child and it will be true to you NEWSPAPERS Those people who think they know exactly how a newspaper should be conducted are many and yet actual experience has not demonstrated the adaptibility of every individual to newspaper work There are rare cases where greeners have jumped into newspaper harness and made a success tf it financially but where you find one instance of this kind you find a dozen dismal failures to offset it The secret of success however is found iu the fact that a practical printer guid ed the destinies of the the paper A newspaper must literally speaking be independent in thought and action live within its means The greatest failure in the newspaper profession have been made by men high in other callings It is not every doctor law yer or school teacher that can make a success of the newspaper business Where there is one success there arc nine failures to offset it This is nut a braggadocia but plain facts which can be substantiated Merkel Mail The lowest price on record was touched by British consols in London last week It is curious fact

lively piquante and possess playful ways The short plump girls are brisk and often have the faculty of looking at the bright side of things and are as merry as crickets Most men find the little women fascinating they are easier to caress and have nestling coaxing ways with them There is something about a little woman that is clinging and looking up to a tall man she seems to appeal to his protectionhe views her with the idea that she is to be taken care of No doubt owing to the abbreviated stature and playful ways men give to little women more petting than the taller dignified women demandsOf stature is she demands one ot Shakespeares heroes of any otherJust as high as my heart he proudly answered thinking gladly bow his little loves head could rest there Tall women are usually dignified and stately Why length of limbs should should make them so is hard to say but we all feel that were they to adopt the ways manners and bearingof little women the effect would be ridiculous and grotesque Tall women draw admiration and love but they are too awe Inspiring and men are timid about approaching them Tall women a re of ten supposed to be melancholy reserved and given to lonely wanderings Some men navo intense admiration for tall women the taller the better but they are usually little men who naturally like and appreciate the op posite to themselves and look up to Jt J I r and admire and respect tbe tall dig nified commanding looking woman WILL THEY ORGANIZE The movement to organize the grow versof Burley tobacco into no association with the avowed purpose of fight ing the grinding methods of the manu facturers trust is rapidly gaining ground in spite of the proverbal dis inclination of the farmer to go into any kind of organization even where it is plainly to his own interest to do so Promoters bf the movement have been at work in Washington county and where the plan is understood it is gaining ground The plan is practically the same a5 has been successfully carried on grain growers in the West for number of years where the producers form an organization that controls the market price of their products and provides a market for the same independent of trusts or combines In speaking of the tobacco grower a wrisays The farmers are at last awakening to the fact that they have the means at hand to organize aid u operate that capital Las awakening to the fact that combined they will represent more wealth and power than the Trust represents awakening to the fact that business in all branches of industry is conducted differently now frora what it was only a few years ago aid that in order to protect themselves they must avail themselves of the modern means and madern methods of doing business That cough jou have may get well without treatment

Cravens THE GRINDING PROCESS In this day of common motive and combined activity the indi vidual seems to be at a discount comparatively insignificant beside the great purpose and progression of which he is a part He is a mere bit of machinery rather than a complete individualengine Apart by himself he is of small moment it is only hip strength as a unit in the collective whole that counts To be an effective factor he must sink individuality- The whole training of the present day is toward selfrepressIOn- and this is as it should be It is somewhat anomalous that sellre pression makes for character It does just as selfdenial makes for power just as mute unquestion ing service makes for generalship ability to direct Thus instead of cheapening manhood the present day business life gives it coordination fiber and tone It is refining yet a strengthening process It is a more even yet a more po tent and effective life that we lead these days It is concerted ef fort and common enterprise grad ual sure continuous as against a riotous individuality of former times sporadic full of mistake uncertain It is the difference between trained energy and misdi rection concentration and waste Finely tempered and powerful individuality brings success today no less than formerly Perhaps the road is a little longer now but achievements are more substantial and enduring On the whole there is no good reason for the man of today to despair because he is ground down If he has tho intrinsic merit the grinding will develop it If he lacks it he is perhaps even better off a factor in the big machinery than he would be in independent action St Louis Republic Low Rates TO California Washington Oregon Idaho Montana and Utah VIA BIG FOURO- ne Way Colonist Tickets at very low rates on eale
