bought it The turnpike company was stub born too and did not exercise the right of redemption for a loop time and Itlooked as though Shannon would own the pike but he finally got his money and the

majority was only six In 1870 ths same two ran for the third time at Shannon bead his opponent two votes As a Judge he was a wonder No pent up legal Utica contracted his adjudi cations He always had on hand plenty of law but the best lawyers of that country wondered where he got it had a pronounced sense of justice hated a meanness For the techntq of the legal profession he had soveret contempt His business was to be and be was just with all his might- I shall never forget the case of Wit ers vs Minor The plaintiff was the landlord ot the defendant and had andrwas an eacell man and did not

practice Jt was a bleak day in Jan uary and as It was the sole contested Ease on the docket it took all day to try It Not only did the defense resist the attachment but they pleaded pay ment of the rent There was a jury and the evidence was all for the plain tiff and it there ever was a legal deft nltionpt the grounds attachment sworn to on the witness stand With es proved it that day Wbitlcck

been able to fix his eyes on a single goal he would have gone far I u0delightfulnally startling his com nlons with original thoughts butalw ys Inchoate Nature denied him a balance wheel and in that

had made s hit with Itj but the jury was not on lon ger than the tlme required to write a verdict for the plaintiff Then Whitlock moved to discharge the attachment The lawyers all laughed immediately but Whitlock made a speech that was simply thrill ing and a tear came slowly into the Judges eye and rolled down his bron zed cheek When Whitlock conclude- Compton wanted to make a speech in reply but Rousseau would not it and called for judgmentliThe attachment is discharged said the Judge That was all we wanted nor never intended to have anything subject to execution and a thousand udgments against him would not have embarred him the slightest He got his corn for the amount In controversy was too small for appeal It was a long time before the Metcalfe bar could think of Wi there vs Minor

the various political parties I have become a candidate for Circuit Judge of the 29th Judicial District to be voted for at the November Election 1903 In politics I am a Democrat RESPECTFULLY ROLLIN HURT The effort made by the Republican press to keep up the bitter ness and hatred of the two last State campaigns is feeble bid for victory If tho Democrats are enemies of the commonwealth if they are butchering justice and debauching the fair name of old Kentucky if they are incompetent to manago tho business interest of such a great community then the republican press and the leaders of that party should not stoop to tho low and groveling methods of kindling the fires ot pasaiou so de structive to o u r great common r good Their plea is but the wail of the outs wanting in their charges tho concentration of bitterness and prejudice and their ef forts puny and repulsive to the broad minded people of this Stato who believe in leaving the troubles of the past The charges made against Gov Beckham ofabusing his pardoningpower have been set at naught by publishing the rec ords The charge made against him in paying an attorney a liberal fee for collecting for the State has boon proven unjust by a com parison cf other States for work Every pier presented every accu BUiou made has been to advance their party and not the interest of the State Every body knows that Gov Beokham and his

best for our State and decidedly more pleasant to our make up We do not fear the result in November Democrats will not stay at home and their power expressed at the polls wands the State 20000 in the Democratic column In another column will be found the announcement of Hon Rollin Hurt a candidate for Circuit Judge in this the 29th judicial dis trict This announcement is due and due onlv to a great popular demand made on Mr Hurt to be come a candidate For full three months the members of his party have besieged him from every part of the district and not only have democrats been enthusiastic and persistent in their call o u Mr Hurt but many strong true and courageous republicans have like wise tendered their aid in making him the successful man for the po sition in the November election Mr Hurt has hesitated but the ap peals were so strong so general that he enters the race at the bidding of friends who desire to see him judge As a lawyer he stands in the front ranks known to be able fair honest and fearless As a citizen he is one of the most popular ae a democrat he is known to be conservative A man who attends to his own business who is every bodys friend whose character is above reproach and whose fitness for the position he seeks in every particular IS rounded up with the highest qualifications Governor Beckhams speech cov ers every vital question before the people of Kentucky It is a plat form broad enough for every lover of true and progressive government to stand on No issues are dodgedno straddles made His speech is positive and aggressive It will appear in our

Tucker had been in feeble health and for six or eight weeks had been confined to his room and his death was not unex pected to his family and friends who were familiar with his troubles He had just passed hls seventieth year though apparently astrong man until a few months ago when age and dis ease united to take him from earth Scarcely any other man was more thoroughly known to the people of our county than Mr Tucker He had served the county four years as jailor and both in public and private life was known as a n honest conscientious Christian gentleman His many friends throughout the entire county have been solicitous of his welfare during his illness which shows the marked degree of interest and esteem entertained by our people for him No eu logy is necessary he was known loved and appreciated A good man gone to his reward A wife and several child ren all grownsurvive Mrs O S Dun bar of this town one of the daugh ters We extend our sympathy for he was our friend a man of noble charac terWe doubt whether Adair county ever produced two more earnest consecrated Christian ladies than Miss Susie Mourning and Miss Lela Nay lor For several years they have been located at Highway Clinton county teaching asa matterot charity They have been faithful to their post of duty not only sacrificing their time but using their money to aid in build ing up strong Christian characters in that section Their visit to friends and relatives in this county was ex ceedingly pleasant On last Wednes day the day before their departure for their field of labor they spent at the home of Mr and Mrs M J Mur rell Mr J S Naylor wife and child ren and C S Harris and wife joined the visiting party It was a day re freshing in many particulars but just before the parting a song full of splr itual sentiment was sung a Psalm read and Miss Naylor lead in prayer The services and the parting were fail of love and good will How blessed to spend time with the pure Ju heart the noble Jn purpose and theself sacrificing in all the walks of life How different the ordinary gathering of today The services of Rev W H Clem ana has been secured as principal of the M F High School and pastor of the Church at this ed as an educator having bad charge Of of the school at Hadna Kentucky for seven years during which time the school was ready built np This move indicates that Columbia will soon nimble tt boat of two lire schools and will s tjn become the center for edHiiivatloQ for all this Green Blycr Uutrtrbc F llfght School 1iaputi uorTiifday the uGtht yr r On the first page we give a picture of the school building which will soon be completed Every person who contributed should feel proud of it and those who refused to aid such an enterprise and especially men of wealth who own property and conduct business almost within its morning shadow should now como to the front with liberal subscriptions for dormatories It is a duty a responsibility that can not be shifted Every man owes some thing to his community and if be fails to give aid to such enterprises that will benifit the public morally intellectually and financially his talents surely are burled under indifference and selfishness If we would have our town grow in population in wealth and character the people who have the means must give and freely give to ery enterprise whose mission is noble and elevating We cannot live for self alone and hope for a healthy vig orus public Prosperity founded on no broader base than averice is in our judgement a curse rather than a bless ing It is the doers the givers rath er than the posessors who blaze the way for posterity who transform the wilderness of inactivity superstition and ignorance into the broad plane of advancement worth and intelligence We are reminded that the wants of this age are numerous that many ef forts are made to seperate the casnI and its owner that so many enter prises of various kinds are seeking aid that the pleas of many worthy par ties and institutions are lightly con sidered Give to the dormatory fund and many who failed to give on the first call would doubtless respond to the second Already the property owners of this town have recleved good from the fact that the school will be a success Slowly but surely ad vances have come and yet the limit has not been reached Foryears town lots both for business and residence purposes have had but little value and but little demand We whittled boxes and talked about better times and richer countries but as soon as we went to work for the town anti secured this school a better feeling prevailed the future is brighter and many from a distance are willing to join interest with us Now Jf we rightly apprlcL ate the results of our Initiatory efforts then let us all go forward and round up the work and not quit until the battle is o ler and the victory won Notice bas been given by the Cham pion Bridge Company that the bridge material has been shipped and that it will likely be completed by the 25th of this month At its completion the bondsmen who pledged the payment of 9550 00 will be required to put u and we therefore ask all parties wh p subscribed to this
