until now taken clal crgoza nee of the tact Tne guardians of the public health in some cl Its propose to lake sanitary charge of persons suffering from these diseases and enforce a system of treatment which people of themselves will not for their own protection adopt Children diseases are not only cum mono but to a large extent innocuous Many parents are pleased to have their children take them so that they may Kt through the Inevitable trials of child life Few children escape whoop ing couth or measles but there Is ally no more reason why children should contract these diseases anymore than smallpox Were the same effort made to eradicate measles and whooping cough they would be as rare as smallpox The only safe principle to be acted on in the safeguarding o health is that no disease is necessary or deslraole Public opinion everywhere sustains the inspection and control of tubtr culusitsfoj health authorittts The dist ase is nut only easilycommunicated but easily rendered innocuous Con huuiption is exceedingly contagious Its germs infect houses as persistently aud pervasively as those of small pox and dlptheria The means for the destruction of the sputum which pre vents any possibility of the spreading of the disease are simple and cheap The authorities will however meet with indifference and even opposition on Ute part of those who should fo r their own or others safety take th simple precautions required But ex perience sltttts that public opinion will iu inn enforce obedience to the just regulations of Boards of Health roniirUngdistase of every kind Every county as

that has been said of his boy- Ish caprices As he gets years he eems to be getting balance and the good education with which he was prepared for Royal duties Is coming into play Evidently he realizes even at his present youthful age that the future of his people and kingdom is to be made from within themselves and their immediate domain The subsistence question is one of vital importance in Spain and the strikes of laborers often reported In that country take more significance from their bread riot character than from any socialistic or political Im pulses among the people For this reason Alphonsos attention has been directed to the fact that Spanish man ufacturers and export trade are not sufficient to produce the necessary ex changes for food products demanded by his subjects Hence the necessity for creating a larger home production of the dally necessaries of subslstauce Taking his lesson perhaps from the way in which King Edward of Eng land is ever alert to the interests of the common people of his kingdom and from the restless energy with which the kaiser of Germany is ale ways declaimiag for things that will keep his people well fed and contented Alphonso is proposing to teach tbb Spanish peasantry the possibili ties and profits of more intelligent and intensive farminghAs an 750 hectares or his own poorest land accounted barren for centuries and has prurured agricultural machinery of the liueit types intending to so ex ploit it as to prove that the lands of Spuiu farmed on modern lines can pioauce plenteous and profitable crops for all the needs of his people If he succeeds in doing this he will have proven himself one of the most valua ble rulers Spain has had In four cen turies Atlanta Constitution The killing of over sixty people In a railroad

issue of 1904 we feel that it is our privilege as well as our custom to extend greeting to the many readers of the New and to notify them of our appre ciation of their patronage iu ev ery department in our line of work Beginning a little over six years ago with no business and without experience in the newspa per world we have succeeded in building a subscription list of 2000 and our job department liaF been moving np all the time As to Jur advertising the paper shows for itself We desire to thank the many who read and pay for the paper We highly appreciate the patronage of those who seek its columns in advertising and to the many who give us job work we tender our sincere thanks For SIX years we have sought your pa tronage in the various lines that make up our business We have endeavored to give you full valu for what we received but cramped in quarters crippled by imperfect machinery we have not been able to serve you as thoroughly and a readily as modern business ninth ods require or to our own satiafuc tion In the near future within thirty days we hope to be in a building ot ample room and hay one of the most complete outfit in Southern Kentucky A part o the equipments have already bepl purchased and within a few day this office will be almost new from body type to the highest grad press found in country offices li the future as in the past we stand for our town our county and State Heretofore we have give our aid to public enterprises uno improvements to the extent of our ability We can not promise mor in the future but feeling that our efforts have been of worth to this town that we hove aided in its ud vanoeraent and that our endeavors havo resulted in good to our coun ty we are ready for other steps in the samo direction The school has been secured It has started under flattering prospacts and bids to become one of the greatest in stitutions in Southern Kentucky We therefore call the attention i f our townsmen to the necessity a good supply of pure water Ii other words we feel that waterworks are essential to good hahh and happiness and bsftir the do of 1904 hope and expect to water put in every building aid an ice factory to cool

efforts Mr J M Richardson editor of the Glasgow Timesa gentlnma i who has done mush for the Demo cratic party of Kentucky has giv en his friends to understand that he will be a candidate to represent the Third district in Coigr es partyIBarren couity in the Kentucky Legislature and is a Prison Com missioner at this time He has been faithful to every trust and from the reading of his paper you will readily see that he is against the trustejust tfn everyday Democrat in whom there is no guile a gentleman who would make a most excellent Representative We are not in the district but Metcalfe county is and the Adair County News elnsi ers around consider erably in that section Unless William H Culton the star wituflps for the State in the Caleb Powers trial shows up with ia the next few days his

appreciation ot our efforts The paper has been the medium of many just compliments of him and his estimable family but since itdid not bow to his aspirations for office in a political contest and since he is secure for nx year he pitches it overboard It is presumed that he has no further use for the pa per and no interest in a home Vn terprse that he can not control We have no upologies to offer for 01 tionin the poli ti al contest and to be plum and truthful it is known that the News was friendly and aided him in his contest against Mr Miller and we doubt whether any of his partisan friends aided his canvass more successful ly than din the members of the News office We do not mean to be whining about the loss of a sub scriber not at all but think the gentleman who holds so high and honorable position has started the New Year ina manner not commensurate with his heretofore public spirit It may be that he willnot need the News it may be that he might find it useful The Iroquois Theater in Chica go was destroyed last Wednesday afternoon and hundreds of people were burned to death At 2 oclock Thursday morning the number of the dead was placed at 571 and the injured
