However I concluded that a letter from one of you who is at present on the grounds uilKhtbe of in barest to at leaat a few therefore the following attempt There are at present five Marion county and two Adair county boys all here working together In the same business whatever that may be and we hope to meet a goodly number of our friends from the above named counties at the Fair ere it closes If I be permitted to drop a word of advice to those who contemplate the visit 11fJlri say do not come to the Expustiiti rr vime weeks Sat itC as public and private appr prlalions both a t home and abroad slow tbe fnanclal resources to be much greater than of previous floorfspace as well as those yet underway The above facts conceded the Expo sition yet remains far from comple tion both in buildings

every government on the globe being represented FlrstI may mention one tribe of the adopted sons and daughters of America fr im the far oil Philippines known as Igorrotes nicknamed dog eaters on the account of their pe culiar lust for dog Iksh They held one of their dog feasts Sunday the 15th the second one they have been permitted to hold since their arrival I was given the pleasure of witnessing first one While the dogs are being cooked theentire tribe joins In the dance to music of the tamtam never ceasing until the dog Is ready to be served when all join in the eating with ravenousappetltep continue un til the feast is over when they sume the dance until sunset These savage people are of a dark nut color their hair s long and straight They seem to strike all as being the most perfect models of phys ical strength Their limbs are straight and set with the most perfect muscle you might imagine These things you may judge wheUyou see them for your view will not be obstructed by silks satins nor laces The dress of men women and children consist of one garment containing about a yard of tive wooveu cloth wound in a pecul iar manner around the waist The sheep raisers of Adair might prevail on Gov Hunt to bring them through fur a viiit and let them rid the country of sheep killing dogs Gov Iliodman Judge Butler Bob Price aud N Tutt could keep a close watch oa their bounds while they were in the neighborhood The Muras are a sullen vicious pen pie and have to be kept under close guard at all times They gave vent to feelings of great joy when tod of the recent ambuscade their brethren at home made onour boys The Philippine scouts are from Provinces near Manilla They are very mall people much darker than the Igorrates or Moras To see them dressed in tbe uniform of the United States soldier makes one think of heavy expenses incurred and heavy yet to come If we keep It tp long enough to tame the Moras and teach the Igor rotes that hogs head and jowl is better than dog meat In the agricultural building will be seen exhibits in the Kentucky section familiar to all but so arranged as to be very attractive and pleasing When I beheld the puts of Ginseng in Ken tuckys exhibit I was carried back to my boyhood days when Bob Willis of color better known to our family as Yellow Hammer and myself roamed tbe woods in the vicinity of Zion on Sundays

Rood book never produced a bad vote in the box is worth a mile of is a good friend but Do Well is a brother A man Is growing od when he begins to wonder it he looks his age Tbe brightness of the future depends largely upon the Tightness of the past God dues nut take note of the amount yuu give but of the spirit in which it is given Our Idea ota stern will Is being able to leave a warm bed on a cold morning without regret Its a happy home when its head leaves his business troubles outside of the cottace door The man who has a message and really wahts to deliver it never has trouble in finding listeners We have seen men take prlz s for fine stock who couldnt take a prize of any kind for fine children Genuine optimism Is looking for ward with pleasure to a visit to the dentist when one has the toothache The childrens mud pies are not good eating but nothing looks prettier if they are made by your own children We have our suspicions of the man who does not feel a tingle of that fishing at this time of the year The more you cry over your failures the longer it will be ere you have op portunity to rejoice over your successes If you wanted a real E Z Mark we would pick out a man who believes all the war news he sees in the daily pa pers We have often wished we could trav el through scenes as fine as those pic tured in the railroad advertising fold ers When a man iselectid to some little Jim Crow office he usually feels as bg as a country town that has just cap tured the county sc t TTHE SITUATION IN MANCHURIA The scantiness cf news from the seat of war indicates the advance of the Japanese armies further into Man churia in the direction of the Russian army under Gen Kuropattin enabling there movements and ultimate aim to be better conceal d It grows morn evident that the Rusans are on tilt defensive and tbat if an cugugemem ensues it will be forced by the Japanese commander Whether this shall be delayed until the movement in forci against Dalny and Port Arthur brought to an issue or not is not appar ent The evidence however seems to indicate that the demonstration on the peninsula is independent of thai from Feng Wang Cheng and that Gen Kurokl will act solely with referent to dislodging the Russian army from Llao Tung His army now seems o concentrated and disposed that he has the choice either to make a direct attack to test his strength with that of his adversary or by threatening the latters left flank and rear to force him to fall back to Mukden or still further opiniithatcontract their lines and ultimately to take position as far north as Harbin if not still further There has dently been a withdiaual of their forces from New Chwang and points near the coast but whe her with a view of concentration fur resistance attack or retreat has nut developed rhe one evident condition is that the two opposing forces are in such posl Lion that decisive action cannot be long delayed =Couriir Journal Au Iowa man was recently look ing for

convention to be hold in St Louis Mo July 6 1904 to nominate candidates for President and VicePresident of the United States N14i TuTT Chairman Democratic Ex Com Adair Countyrt Jo A Parker the Populist leader of Kentucky is for Hearst Hear him I am for Hearst said he and am doing what I can for him I am frank to say that I want to see the Democrats nominate him at St Louis He will receive the solid support o arsttional leaders of my party when 1I say that we are for him His witdernment He advocates certain principles for which we have been fighting for years If the Dem ocrats nominate him the Populis- party will put out no ticket an we will put our shoulders to th wheel to help elect him Bu meeft n Louis on July 4 before the Dem ocrats meet Yes that is a fact replied Parker but I am now advocating a postponement of this date for two weeks in or whethetr or whether he is able to name a man who believes as he does All our party leaders agree with me that this should be done and I shortlmy we our con vention Then of course if th Democrats do not nominat- Hearst we will meet andnomi nate a ticket The Republicans had a high old time in Wisconsin Two conven ventions were held in

the Kentucky Court of Appeals was elected Moderator of the Cumberland Presbyterian General Assembly receiving 158 votes to 76 forJudge F H Prendergast who is oppos ed to the Cumberlands uniting with the Old School Judge Settle favors the idea We do not think there is any like lihoCd of Mr Hearst being nomi nated for the Presidency but strange things sometimes happen Parker will evidently lead in the convention but he will not have a twothirds vote on the first cal lot The outlook for the Northern and Southern Presbyterian Churches and the Cumberland Presbyterran Church all uniting is a possibility Overtures to that end were made last week The Democrats of this county should remember that a mass convention will be held at the courthouse in Columbia Saturday June 4 All Democrats are

blue up to this writing Mr A R Foley of Russell Springs was in town Monday and when asked by a News man for items of interest in his part of the country replied as fol lows But little news in our section as nearly every body is making use of the Spring weather so long delayed and are now busy on their farms Politics are always floating in the atmosphere of Russell county but just now the ad herents of the G O P are somewhatat sea as they have so many candidates for Congress and all said to be men shrewd and able to distribute pie but the main trouble seems to be to deter mine the one who will actually dish it out When this one is discovered he will sweep the deck As to Democratic feeling I can only say we are all in line and fairly well divIded between Parker and Hearst Either is good enough for us and I believe able to defeat Roosevelt Marriage is honorable and in our judg ment it is the true road to happiness when couples are properly mated but when a mistake has been made the re

believed that they could live happily in each others love untiLsepar ated by death but they were not suit ed and trouble soon arose The husband was abusive recently struck his wife upon the arm with a stick almost break ing it and his conduct in other respects was disgraceful His wife was afraid of him believed that her life was in danger that her own husband was only waiting an opportunity to kill her Last week Mrs Skaggs believed that her time had come if she did not resort to desperate means to prevent the aw ful crime Her husband was raging making threats and believing that she wouldsoon receive great bodily harm reached for the gun fired and killed the man she had promised to love This was an unhappy marriage What think ye of the result i- o CLOSING OF LINDSEYWILSON The closing exercises of The Lindsay Wilson School last week were fullyup to expectations and from beginning to close were faultlessly rendered The large hall with capacity of full 700 peo reagr part nor see e part of the exercises especially the roe itations A comment on the rendition of the programs is unnecessary further than the statement that all who attend ed were highly entertained and those who participated manifested thorough training which reflects much credit o their instructors Were it not for what might appear to some as partial we would gladly note the crowning features of the entertainments but the young people who displayed extraordinary taste and talents on the stage need n eulogy but merely a continuation of opportunity Apart from the closing of the first term it is well enough for the friends of this institution to remember the hard struggle and sacrifice of many to secure its building and they should feel proud of the fact that it had the auspicious opening of any similarschool in Southern Kentucky They should not forget that the first term the one whose potals closed last week stands unparalleled in this part of the State and that the future is bright and buoy ant They should appreciate the untir ing devotion energy and ability of its Principal General Manager and Teachers in every department of the work and give thanks to Him whose protecting care has been so manifest in the initiative effort of such a val able institution The school opened with about 150 stu dents rapidly advanced to 200 or more and closed well up to its highest number So far as we have been able to hear the teachers received the endorse ment of the patrons which indicates that good work has been done The closing exercises were not productive of only myrth and light hearts bu mingled with tears and sadness The time to say goodbye the parting showed the strong attachments between students and the love and veneration for teachers A RANK FRA UD The people of Columbia are generally on the alert and are not easily taken in but last week many of them were caught the swindler being a negro Saturday night of the week before J A Bryant a negro hailing from the South as he claimed struck the town and in a short time he made his busi ness known He was soliciting aid for a colored industrial school to be located at Tullahoma Tenn He was a smooth talker and exhibited a typewritten let ter signed by Governor Frazer recom mending him With this endorsement he approached our citizens and succeed ed in raising 5200 for the proposed remaining here several days he left for Campbellsville The next night after taking his departure Prof Par ker Jackman a reputable colored man of this community received a letter from Geo Hodgen of Campbellsville stating that Bryant was a rank fraud that he had written and had received answers from letters showing him to be one of the greatest scoundrels that walks Bryant has visited a number of towns in Kentucky playing the same game At Campbellsville he was in company with a woman whom he claim ed to be his wife Hodgen to Jackman states that she was not his wife Bry ant also stated that the school at Tulla homa was a branch school of the Book er T Washington institution A letter from Washington says he knows no such man and that he has authorized no one to solicit for him in this section of the country Bryant upon leaving Columbia called at the News office and requested that we return his thanks to the good people for their very liberal donations He said that he was partial to this place as he had received more money here than at Campbellsville or Greensburg Pass him around MR 11 fl II1TJT DEAD Last Friday morning at about 8 oclock Mr W B Hurt one of Adair countys best Citizens finished his life work and

for the most part favorable In response to your request a brie statement of some of the happenings at this great gathering is here attempted It is significant that the first question brought to the conSerationof the con vention was that of the Negro Problem A committee composed ofone from each state will give the question of helping the negro a careful consideration For one to see the great publication plant which the Negro Baptists have in Nash ville and hear its efficient manager Dr R H Boyd it is readily concluded that some of the negroes are well on the way in Christian education and develop ment The SundaySchool is greatly empha sized by the Baptists of the South The SundaySchool Board is doing business in a fine building furnishing supplies 95 per cent of the Baptists in the South It has founded a course of lect ures at the Seminary at Louisville Four field workers cover the territory o the convention Nothing was more surprising an gratifying than the reponse of the con vention to the Seminary at Louisville when it subscribed 53000 for that in stitution Said President Mullins The Seminary does not train imitators but it develops men education is not information but selfrealization the Semina ry is trying to develop the initiative in men Said one This is the great est day in the history or the conven tion The Home Mission Board should prog ress in work amongthe negroes on the frontier beyond the Mississippi in Cu ba and is looking now to Panama Per haps the greatest spiritual uplift came when that great man Secretary R J Willingham of the Foreign Mission Board took charge of the Convention His report showed more than 2000 bap tisms in the past year homes for1dis sionaries hospitals and schools were es tablished Receipts for the year were 250000 an

nine of them returned Most distinguished among the latter weze Dr and Mrs R Graves of Caubon China For 48 years have they served in China whIther they will soon return Of course the occasion was full of might for God His spirit was there Forty more signified a desire to go Thirtyfour Seminary students and fifteen at Waco Texas were repOrted as volunteers for the Foreign fields It may be

class All they prodnce they must trausport to mar ket LIttle or none is sold on the farm They mast reach rail road stations and pteamboat laud ings and bad highways make the task heavier and much more ex pensive than if the roads wer good A bill is before Congress to provide a Federal aid to the cnL- strnction of good roads over thf country It is certainly the most gigantic undertaking ever propos

agriculture Oolbert his great minister of finance under took to reestablish French pros perity During the wars the road- of France had been neglected an had reached an impassable condition Colbert borrowed mono for the government employed all the idle returned soldiers and set about the work of rebuilding th roads of the kingdom while the agriculturists set about the work of restoring their farms Within five thoroughfare was to be a military and post road and uu der the constItution the govern ment could build it To save complications the government fi nally asked the consent of the several States through which it was to be constructed With the rural mail route it might be argured that under the post road clause the governmen t could either construct or aid in the construction of good roads The military clause no longer pre vails We do propose to discuss at this point either the eonstitn- tionltl power of the government in the matter or whether it is good policy for the government to en In ter upon such a gigantic undertak ing and it should be remembered that the balding is only a part ot the worK The roads would have by to be maintained The good roads are needed but
