upon his case He was breathing heavily He was placed on the floor and Dr Vance was summoned Before the arrival pf the physician Mr Kendall died Mr Kendall went to work as usual this morning and seemed

occasion Mr Kendall expressed a desire to return to Columbia and here end his days Four months ago this office wrote him to come but our letter failed to reach him He is kindly remembered by many of our citizens INTEGRITY AnOVE PARTISANSIllP The unanimous opinion of the Court of Appeals in the Brad burnGalloway contest from Warren county coming after the reign of partisanship which in many instances has extended to the ju diciary itself is real refreshing to honest and fairminded men re gardless of political opinion This case in which the Circuit Judge ship was involved was according to the opinion of the Court or Ap peals the most flagrant case of tampering with the ballots after the count was made that there has been any record of in the State The face of the returns showed a majority for Galloway the Republican candidate Brad burn the Democrat filed a contest and demanded that the ballot box es in certain precincts in Warren county should be opened and the ballots counted This was done and showed a difference of sev etal hundred votes from the cer tificates that were signed by the Thee Court of Appeals in reversing Judge Osborne and deciding in favor of Galloway declared that stamps on a number of ballots had been made opposite Judge Bradburns name and that the marking event showed a different ink from what had been used i thnCourt it was a clear case of an at tempt to steal the election after the returns had been made out 1and a bungling case at that Ware e partisan when it comes to politics and for our fellows until the election is over then we are for the candidate to have the of fine who received the majority of the votes and opposed to any at tempt to falsify the returns W believe in all cases and under all circumstances that honesty should be put above partizanshipE Town NewsIchanging ly atgood elptices If you wan y or feU come and see or write to rTuttI 3entsb v 1 f r I A SAD SITUATION During the campaign the Bal timore Sun contained the follow ing editorial which furnishes much food for reflection If an end is not put to the practice of corrupting voters theS United States will soon have theC evil distinction of possessing thet most venal electorate i n the world The r e is scarcely a doubtful state in which there are not large numbers of electors whose ballots are for sale to the highest bidder It is this class to which the practical polician ad dresses himself Their votes count for as much as the votes of the wisest and best men in the community The price paid them for their venality has been steadily rising in successive campaigns They constitute now a perma nently venal class and their votes have to be reckoned with in every election The vote of the clergy man the professional business man the student the mechanic the clerk the farmerindeed of any honest man with convictions on political issuesmay be offset by the ballot of a man who hawks his vote around and sells it to the purchaser who can afford to pay most for it That there is some buying of votes there can be no question but let us hope that it is not done on such wholesale manner as the foregoing Sun editorial would in dicate At one time the selling of votes was the principal feature of English elections It is said that one man spent as much as 100 to buy a seat in the House of Commons but in these later days the bad habit has almost fallen into disuse Let us hope that an improvement will be made in this country in this regard Anyway it is not so bad as the Sun makes out iScarcely a week passes that we do not hear of the launching of a new battleship with its huge guns destructive machinery of all kinds accommodations for hundreds of men and officers and costing several millions of dollars The object and only object of a battleship is to destroy to kill to menace other nations We would like to hear occasionally by way of contrast of The launch ing of some great merchant stea mers to carry to distant lands the surplus crops raised by our busy and industrious farmers It is pleasanter to read about holds adapted to carry thousands of cattle millions of bushels of grain and all the other products of this teeming land of ours Lets have a surcease of battleships for awhile and some more of the agencies of peace and civiliza tionExNews the South is to the effect that though the fields are white with cotton the farmers are in need of help to pick it Good prices are offered to pickers but the demand exceeds the supply Meantime in every southern vil lage and city are healthy and strong idle men and women who are complaining that they can find no employment Perhaps this means no employment that they are willing to do Many people want easy jobs in other words to earn their money with as little work as possible But all those who are willing to take cold at any thing that comes Kan dy may find jobS of various kinds on farms that unskilled help may do Of course the lazy and worthless the professionally idle the tramp element wont work at an But there is no excuse in this country for any man remain ing idle long if he is of the right makeup and dispositionEx Two candidates one in Callo way and the other in Woodford- e have died since the early prima xies in these counties and in con sequence there will have to be primary elections to nominate their successors We are already having one bf the fruits of the absurd idea of nominating candi dates a year before the election T beM h gnatcivic movemen t uisYlll c toseeur- the enforcement of the law WeI know ofno city where there greater demand for such action Gambling is going on in all pacts of the city the prostiute flaunts her same upon the principal the saloons are kept open Sunday in direct violation of law and so is the variety the atre The men who are under taking the task of reforming Louisville have Augean stables to clean but the moral people of Kentucky regardless of politics are with them in their efforts E Town News VDCIOUSLY ASSAULTED ny NEGRO Mr Ruben Satterfield propre etor of the noted Satterfield farm on Barren river in Allen county was the victim of a brutal and vicious assault by one of his farm hands named Goose Austin a negro last Thursday moning about 7 oclock The assault occurred in what is known as the Horse Shoe Bend on the Satterfield farm about three miles from the dwelling There is only one witness a white man and he did not see the be ginning of it When he first saw the trouble Mr Satterfield was lying on the ground and the negro was standing over him with a big stick The man called to some other hands working nearby and when the negro saw them coming he ran away and has not been seen since although he is said to be hiding near Austin in this countyMr Slatterfield was carried to his home unconscious and physi cians were summoned An eX aminanon disclosed a serious fracture of the skull the only dangerous wound but there were great black bruised places on his body where the negro had sliruck him Friday night the physi cians removed several pieces of the mans skull and trephined the wound but Mr Satterfield has not yet regained conscious ness and the chances in favor of meagerGlasIgow JIR CARLISLE COMES HOME Itis conceded even by his enemies that the Hon JG Carlisle is the ablest Kentuckian produced in a generation all that he lacked of true greatness was backbonean omission that was as fatal to him as it is to every human being similarly affected In an evil hour Mr Carlisle sat himself up in judgment against the home people that had made his politioal fortunes and the political party that had prompted him to leadership Ice was ground in the dust of an overvhelmning public opir ion humiliated disgraced and practically driven from home It is true that fortune has favored him in New York and that he is now a reputed millionaire but the old friends are the best friend and Mr Carlisle in New York is a lone ly man just as in Kentucky he was a marked one Money is not aU there is in life If it were then God help an Carlisle has come home There was no blare of trumpets around his return There were few welcoming hands and there ought to have been fewer still He slipped quietly in and more quietly out After his years of absence Mr Carlisle appears among his old friends returns to the proud state that had given him her highest official honors for the purpose of forc ing social equality upon them Of course he is paid a liberal feeno fee con be too large for work such as that but after aU is said the fact remains that Mr Ca lisle comes to his natives te to force the coeducation of the white and black races at Berea college an institution that was a blot on the fair name of Kentucky and that had been wiped out by the legislature of the state so far as the intermingling of the two races on terms of educational and social equality was concerned It is for this purpose and this alone that Mr Carlisle returns to The Old Kentucky Home It were better that Mr Carlisle had never been born than to have come to the land of his birth on an errand such as this Kentuckians have forgiven him many offenses but for this they will never forgive him Let him go back to the east where money counts for aU let him sit among the white men and the black men of New York where there is no color line The friends of his youth and his riper years want no more of him The Carlisle of the long ago is dead the reconstructed and resurrected Carlisle is damned Glasgow Times SCHOOL MONEY DUE All persons that have subscribed to the

provision made by the council for lighting the streets Myers Bros the young men who bought the franchise are going put in a plant capable of producing 150 incandessent lights of candle power provided the people of the town would contract for 100 of them We understand that the 100 was readily placed- so the plant is assured Now it will be up to the council to light the town or allow it to remain in darkness Of course it will re quire some extra revenue to pro vide proper lights for the streets and square but it would be well spent At this stage of the game- a 36 candle incandescent light would do all right for the streets andcome much cheaper than an rc light Later on when our town pulls up in population and we shall favor the bril rays of the arc Light the streets with incandescents

last Saturday the 3rd inst being the 63rd birthday of Mrs Nannie Royse the neighbors de cided to give her her a surprise dinner About ten oclock the citizens began to come from all directions and by noon the house was filled to overflowing with old young and middle aged They brought baskets filled with the finest luxuries the country affords the names of which were almost innumerable It was at the house of Samuel Royse who is noted for his great hospitality and he and his amiable wife received the guests most cordially It will long be a memorable day to those who had the good fort une to be present When dinner was announced the table present ed to view was laden with so many good things that the very sight was almost sufficient to satisfy the greatest epicure All enioyed the day and the good woman a Mrs Royse in whose honor the dinner was given seemed impressed with gratitude for the occasion Mrs Royse is so popular on account of her great hospitality is that every one is always ready to do her honor Long live it Mrs Nannie Royse and may many such dinners be prepared at the same place And may I be there to see NEAT The growth of Columbia within the last twelve months and her prosperous future is inspiring to all parties interested in the advancement of Adairs capital Every line of business has pulled up considerably and nearly every busiuess man has made some substan tial improvement But there is one tablishment that has been cramped and still in close quarters viewed from the standpoint of the amount of busi ness transacted and the convenience of patrons and that is the post office lumbia is one of the largest distributing offices in the State for star routes and 80 yet all this business is done in one of the smallest buildings in the town so that neither convenience to the public who receive mail here nor real to the Postmaster and his deputies can be enjoyed We have no charge to make against the Postmaster for we doubt whether a more accurate and painstaking gentleman can be found the State Mr James Russell the man in charge measures up to the full demands of this community but it his quarters that need enlarging Mr Russell realizes the necessity of a larg and better building and would have abandoned his present location long ago but no other building could be secured He is willing to rent a good buil dng and put in 150 to 200 lock boxes but at present and until some one will build this can not be accomplished The very fact that several good business houses could be rented to good parties and the further fact that the pressing increasing business interests of this town demand more business houses ought to stimulate the owners of unimproved property on the square to put up some good substantial buildings We trust that someone will take in the situation and erect some good business houses in the near future The postoffice ought to be in a huilding with sufficient lock boxes to commodate the people and this will be accomplished if some one will build This would be a move that every citizen of this town would appreciate and joy Dr J D Russell who is representing The Adair Oil Company located at Jamestown New York visited the Mc Caff ree well near Gradyville last week He secured a sample of the oil pronouncing it the very finest The Doctor thinks there are plenty of oil in Adair county and says the reason it

built in Columbia during the past year There are eight or ten others now in course of construction During the coming year a number of streets will be opened placing many lots on sale It is the general

lines almost to the farmers doors now provide transportation writes Isaac F Marcossin in the November Worlds Work But difficulties arise such as confronted the wheat growers of Ram soy county North Dekota These farmers hauled their grain often a distance of twentyfive miles to Devils Lake the county seat through which the Great Northern rail way passed It kept the farmers haul ing grain all winter They asked James J Hill president of the great Northern railroad to build a branch line from Devils Lake up through their section Mr Hill said he could not build Six of the largest farmers met at a school house One of thEm was Joseph Kelly who owned 990 acres of land and who hauled his wheat fifteen miles to Devils Lake Mr Kelly said If the great Northern wont build we will build Arid the farmers built a railroad twenty five miles long They asked every fanner who hauls grain to Devils Lake to subscribe Some subscribed 25 others 500 They raised 50000 They sent a farmer to Duluth to buy ties and another to St Paul to buy old rails A land promoter was building a small branch line out of Devils Lake to the South and they got him to survey the road They hired section hands to lay the track But they needed more money They bought landalong the line and laid out three towns sold the lots and used the money to buy an old engine a day coach and four box cars from the Great Northern the road was started It wit- stop for any farmer at any place Last year the road made its expenses it hauled 80000 bushels of wheat This year with the railroad at hand the farmers planted more wheat and

production of feathers Variety in food is of great importance in keeping up a good appetite Proportionately it is less expensive to keep a large than a small number o fowls The advantage of poultry on a farm is that it will bring in quicker returns than anything else raised Drinking vessels should be kept in the shade and cleaned every day Dis ease is transmitted through the drink ing vessels in many cases Strong constitutions are the means whereby the wide awake man less a firm course in the steady upbuilding of a fine family of stock Fowls seldom tireof milk They may eat too much grain or meat for thei health but milk in any form palatable and wholesome Tarred paper is better than almost any other material for lining the iside of coops and houses It is also excel lent for driving away lice Among bred poultry there is little difference so far as their economics points are concerned but on a farm a solidstong and course breed is best For soft shelled eggs put the hens at work scratching as it indicates that they are too fat Soft eggs appoplexy 1egg bound and nearly all such disease- are due to the ehn being too fat Those who make the most in keeping poultry are those who have small farms and utilize every rod of them forth e theier stock For feeding young chickens there i nothing better than a broad board upon sashacleaned hence not capable of carrying disease to the chicks A little care will insure proper cleanliness Farming is made up of little indus tries and each one contributes to th success and wealth of the farmer and poultry is as profitable if rightly ma
