undone that he could do he did nothing that we would blot out We sorrow but he dot not need our sorrow He told his friends in unmistakable ter m that his home henceforth was to be beyond the skies in a land that fairer than the one we know We all loved him but not without cause He was a man the husband father friend shrunk at no time from following his ideals In peace and in w he was ever ready with his life ax fortuneThe funeral services took pin ce Saturday and was conducted the Masonic Fraternity of which organization he had been a valuable member for a number of years More than fifty of his brethren took part in the services T procession was grand An inspir ation from the noble active l of him to whom they paid th last respects seemed to possess the brethren As ho was a neigh bor and

S S CONVENTION The Adair County Sunday school Convention which met at Cane Valley Saturday July 25 was one of the most interesting and enjoyable meetings ever held in the county Rev T C Gebeaur the State field worker was present and with 0his enthusiastic lectures on Sun dayschool rk aroused an interest which has scarcely before been felt in the county Speeches by Hons J R Hind man and F R Winfrey wood n compliment as everyone in this section know how well they speak and the enthusiastic interest they take in work ot this kind Rev J P Scruggs the now pastor of 0the Columbia Baptist Church gave an able talk on the work which won for him praise proving that the Columbia Church made no mistake in calling the brother lint that the Sunday school and Church have secured him an able helper and leador in every good work will prove a blessing to the entire community The convention reorganized an adopted a constitutionbecomin a permanent organization and a part the State organization- The following officers were elect and committee appointed J R Hindman President R B Wilson Vice President Mrs Mary S Biggs Secretary and Treasurer Executive Committee GoMHA unanimous vote of thanks was tendered to the people of Cane Valley and vicinity for the sumptuous dinner which they spread bo fore one of the largest crowds that ever assembled in their little city and to quote Rev Gebeau they were more than twelve basketsful taken up after the five thousands were fed It was a meeting never to be forgotten by those present and we as a convention hope that the in terest aroused may never grow less and that the next convention may prove that our work has not been in convention requests all Sundayschools in the county who will contribute any thing for the promotion of the cause to for ward same the County Secretary by August 10 1903 so it may reach the State Secretary before the State meeting 3iofTilE CASEY COUNTY MURDER Editor of News The following is a true account of the killing which occurred in Casey county two weeks ago Robert Lee a minister of ospel and Ellis Woods afar residents of Casey county near Linnie four miles Southwest of Liberty had a dispute about some staves that Lee had made near The lines of their farms Bad words swere exchanged in abundance but they separated without blows The neighbors thought the diffi culity at an end until Woods and his son begun moving the staves gHean appear ed and quickly shot both of the tide a to fatal wound in the cheek of the obyld half crazed by the shock and t fear of another attack finally reached his home Immediately oheid en hours An opening nearly three jsirset oar us were scattered several feet around Lee gave himself up and is in Ja Ito expectedrg ty as the cause of his strange actions aDlMacy J Sicrcy said to be the smallest women in tha world died at her home in Bayonne N last week She was 31 inches tall weighed fifty pounds and was fat ty years old The hot weather caused her fatal illness AtGutbrle JamrS Bibb white was shot and killed by Clyde Davis color ed I Mr Belkoap the npublJ roml nee for Govenor of Kentucky is a suc cessful business man This is to his credit and if what Is said of him is true he is also a boated aristocrat and this is not to his credit He gives employment to threehundred men- The Danville Advocate prints the formation which it says it received from a reliable source that Mr Bel knap refuses to speak to any of his employees when he meets them on the street and that he makes it a condi tion of their employment that they do not speak to him This seems al most incredible It this is true Mr Belknap deserves the contempt of every laboring man in the State without regard to party predilections KELTNER Weather conditions are favora ble for the growing crops and everything is looking lovely Thomas Rodgersof Garrard county was called to the bedside of his little son Lawson hero who is lying very low with typhoid fever Mr E C Finn who is out threshing wheat brought his son TuesdaygBobert Dohoney begun his school here Monday with good in terest and a large enrollment has already received some day pupils from Metcalfe county where he previously taught A series of meetings began here last week by Revs Watkins and oll I was glad to see Bro Payne with us two days of last week in our meeting He preached for us on one occasion and made a very strong impression on his auditors Norman Willis who has been hislsays e ia improving rapidly Mr G A Keltner and wife left for Oklahoma last Sunday pros peeling for a home in the wild of the west The panels would ratner see him come back for he has proven to be a citizen of worth to our community but if he is sac cessful in finding a pleasant home in the west and we have to giv him up we wish him a happy successful career through the re mainder of his life and we truly believe he will prove to be a wor thy citizen and a power whereve- he may reside The same can be of Aunt Nannie his wife It s hard to see them go but life is only a meeting and a separation If we never meet on the limits o earthly life we hope that we wit all meet upon the shores of the happy ones abobe where parting will be no moretAt the State Convention the Repub lican party came out strongly in con demnation of assassination and an abuse of the pardoning power This action is commendable but if such a declaration had been by thatparty four years ago and lived up to much trouble would have been avoided in the State and that party would now have a better standing with lawabid ing and lawenforcing people When Mr Goebel was assassinated in the State House yard by a gang of Republican conspiators and Taylor now a fugitive from justice was handing ouc pardons in advance to men since convicted of
