home I write theselines hoping you may give them space publicationAfter visited the St Louis Fair and viewing some of the splendidscenes a treat which must ever live as an agreeable reminiscence in the minds of all who witnessed that matchless display we arrived at our desti nation on August 19 1904 and took up our abode in a small town of eight hundred inhabitants situated on the Omaha Kansas City railroad 60 miles from the Iowa boundary and 80 miles east of Kansas City This is a prosperous country The surface is slightly undula ting the soil is fertile and farming and stockraising are the chief pursuits The raising of fine cattle is especially prominent At the Trenton Mo Fair I saw some of the finest and heaviest cattle I had ever seen Land sells on an average at 70 per acre The citizenship of our little Burg is for the most part made up of thrifty enterprising pea pIe who appear to enjoy prac ticing kindness and hospitality The larger portion of the male population of our village and county are either Democrats or Folk Republicans and we offer this fact as a plea for the intelli gence of this particular locality against the harsher reality of the dear old States having so ignorniniously f alien from grace in the last National con test Our town has three churches withregular services two Sun dayschools one day school three drygoods stores and one drug store We also have three min isters two doctors one mayor two justices and a marshal Your humble scribe is nearing the close of a very pleasant eight month term of school at a fairly good salary with some grounds for the hope of raise next term Our school is taught in a large brick college building which was the seat of a thriving High School and College until twelve years ago when it was al lowed to break down An effort is now being made to reestablish the High School in the near fu ture and if this is successful it will reclaim this town and corn munity from a sad retrograde in school work The extremely low tempera tures which from reports seem to have prevailed over the United States certainly did not fail to be appreciated in NorthWest Mis souri Since the Xmas holi days our local thermometers have often indicated a coolness of 20 degrees below but it was not until February 13th that we experienced our coldest wave On that morning we awoke to find the mercury 32 degrees be low zero v The News reaches us on Friday forenoon and we thoroughly enjoy the perusal of its contents We very much appreciate its en larged form wish to thank our editor for the change We regretted to note the deaths of Judge Garnett Dr Strange WJ Page and other Adair county citizens who have filled such useful spheres The corn munity has sustained a sadIois i11y 4I i 1 H NK1i II Z 1fki in the demise of these men and their posts will be difficult to fill but well hope there will be forth coming other worthy ones who will carry forward the work begun by these Sadly but truly The wages of sin is Death and He is the hard Master who reaps where He has not sown We heartily join in the rejoic ing over the success of Colum bias new school and wish it a long and useful career but we feel proud also that the worthy old M and F High School where we had the privilege of forming some happy and lasting associa tions is not becoming a back number but is enjoying its due share of support and success The decision of Columbians not to live in darkness rather than light but to illume the town is certainly commendable and we trust that ere long you will be able to announce your possession of a good system of waterworks as well as the dis covery of some paying oil gush ers within the boundaries of our dear old county We should like to hear oftener from the Ozark and Joppa corres pondents and hope they will be stir themselves Brother E B White since you have settled down domestic felic ity give us the Cray Craft doings Since the Kentucky legislature has at last agreed upon a suit able site for the States new Cap jtol buildings perhaps the next business in order will be the se lection of a proper political sepuII chur for the Bluegrass Senator However we are pursuaded that the

COUNTY NEWS COLUMBIA KY MARCH 1 1905 i 1 t Caesar and Caesars Wife There is awhole lot of food for I solid thought in the recent ruling ofa Western Judge 1that the wife has the same right to re main out at night to drink and to gamble that the husband has This ruling suggests for our consideration a most vital truth a truth which has from the beginning of human history been for the most part overlooked The truth I refer to is this that nobt questions of sex but are eve have been and will ever continue to be the same for both man and woman False as its dangerous and degrading IS the idea contained in the too familiar phrase VThe Double Standard of Morals Such standard never existed save in the minds of immoral men and had it never been heard of the world would now be a great deal betterthan it is There is but one morality and this morality holds good for all mortal beings of whatever race age or sex Alike for all men and for all women there is the way that is right and the way that is wrong A wrong in a man is a wrong in a woman and conversely that which is right for the man is also right for woman There is but the one moral law and whoever Breaks it breaks it and whoever keeps it keeps it and that is all there is to it In no way shape or mane e does the breaking or the keeping of the law hing upon the matter of sexIn respect is a drunkard thief gambler libertine of the masculine gendeur any better or any worse than a similar person of the feminine gender It is quite true that owing to a false education we overlook a great many things in men which we abominate in women pardon ing the men for the Very actsfoi which we everlastingly damn the women As has been already intimated it is only our moral ignorance that causes us to do this It is decidedly wrong for a woman to smirch her womanhood but it is not a bit worse than it is for- man a to manhoodbMan has no more right than woman to trifle with the moral lawOur old friend Caesar was a very great man when it came to manipulating political caucuses and wiping out hostile popula tions but he was a mere tyro when it came to the canons of human decency and goodness He was one of historys con fblesrandard he was in fact a mighty stickler No matte- what happened Caesars wife had to be above suspicion But Caesar An that was an other matter Caesar was Caesar and Caesars wife was Caesars wife Wise as he was and intellect ually he was one of the greatest men of whom history gives u any informationthe great Juli did not seem to understand the simple ethical principle that the moral law that aPliedbto his wife applied also and with equal t force to himself t A great many centuries have 1rolled away since Caesar lived but there are multitudes who still think as he did upon this al1 important subject Where is the man who does not insist upon his wifes bei a paragon of virtue and a mode discretion How careful she must be And how quickly she is frowned upon cursed and castt aside If she makes the least false stepAnd yet how often itis that the husband is grossly false to the morality he is so persistem y Mir j ss r t t 1 itr demanding obedience to on the part of his wifefShe must guard his honor but how provokingly careless he is of guarding hers If she were t6 come home to him drunk he would be temptedj to throw her into the keenly would his honor be ag grievedbut how oftendoes he corrie home drunk to her If her good name should hap pen to become the target of ugly rumor how he would rave andv feltrthat there was the slightest foun dation for the rumorand at the same time he might be a hundredfold worse than she even upon the supposition that the reports about her were all true It is this miserable inconsistency and hypocricy that is make ing tlt us It is this old lie of the double standard that is at the bottrm of the greater number of our divorces Let man be what he would have woman be and all will be wellRev Thomas B Gregory tiLilleFinding health is like finding

pains The handling of hus bands by wives in America amounts to an art a prof nssion almost a science Based on the theory that the more one has t0 do the more one can Accomplish ladies who have hardworking enterprising spouses simply retire from active life If he his office and business satisfac t rily Why not take over th hous and servants What is known as a good husband in the States is a first closs nontir ing moneymaking machine who gives everything asks nothing and brags ceaselessly of his wifes perfections Should he presume to criticise a charred chop or a flat souffle or complain

Recently many women have blossomed out as afterdinner speakers at mens dinners There never was any reason why women shouid not have gained distinc on in this line But the fact remains that among the long list of women who have gained distinction in politics and the various professions within the past few years Jt is a wonder that so few have become speakers Club life is much responsible for the growing ability of women to speak creditably in public Women used to get rid of the duty of impromptu speaking by reciting a poem or something in that line But reciting seems to have gone much out of

they are surprised to find out that the ownership according to the records is in quite a different name from the real owner It costs but a trifle to have the owner name entered on the proper record-

account of the depreciation of dogs have gone into the purebred business with renew ed energy since the desire to pay losses from the dog license fund was en actedPeter Jansen the great sheep breeder of Nebraska says every sheep feeder who intends to stay in the business should have a dipping plant A Montana farmer recently sheared three bottleraised sheep which gave fleeces weighing 2018 and 17 pounds respectively or a total of 55 pounds for the three sheep The number of sheep on December 30 last in New South Wales was 28 663983 showing an increase of close to 2000000 over 1902 In 1891 there were 61000000 and in 1884 only 31000000 An English shepherd being asked what he attributed his unequaled suc cess in the show ring to replied To two thitgs always having my entries thoroughly trained to walk in the hal ter and to always being polite to the judge no matter what position h placed the exhibit in A trayeler giving an account of the Persian sheep in 1798 says The j tails frequently weighed eight or ten pounds and they have six or eight horns some of which stood out hori zontally and caused a great deal of bloodshed when the rams engaged with one another Both the wool and flesh of these sheep were greatly valued An Englishman who owns a fine and highly improved ranch near Cuidad Porfirio Diaz Mexico says that cattle and sheep do well when pastured together as sheep will live

threatened the fruit interests of the United States is the San Jose Scale and if unchecked it will in a few years destroy many orchards and gar dens Every fruit grower should now examine his trees for it especially those that have been planted within EpitomisteWhere a tree or a bush is thoroughly infested the whole plant presents an ashy dusty or scurfy appearance and feels gummy The insect when crush ed yields a yellow fluid Where but few of the insects are present on a tree they are most easily found on the fruit onwhich they produce circular r purplish blotches which are very characteristic It spreads very slowly through an orchard having a special liking for the Bartlett Giffard Bosc and Aryon pears the yellow transpar ent apple the Fay Currant the Lom bard plum and the common Juneberry and these trees and plants should re ceive the most careful inspection Badly infested trees should be dug up and burned at once which is the only sure tr3atment for them The Winter treati ment of trees not badly infested should consist of spraying them as soon as the leaves falfwith a hot solution made by devolving two pounds of whale oil soap in one gallon of water and the spraying should be repeated before the leaves open in the Spring This treatment if persisted in will hold the insects in check and render them harmless I SA HIGH PRiViLIGE No man can create 80 much as

vaguely or clearly as the case may be that makes the farmer a good farmer We may think of God as saying I lend you for use the broad and fertile lands and I freely give you the air and sunshine the

look upon this partnership or fail to see it inspiration to highest endeavor is most difficult to understand To work in closest harmony with the great force of nature ought to be recognized as the

growing pigs Keep the growing pigs in a thrifty condition so that they can be readily fattened later on Pigs will make the most rapid gain by feeding liberally with grain while there is good pasturage Feeding to the pigs is one of the best ways of disposing of small and im perfect fruits and potatoes Feeding the sows plenty o slop made of middlings andmilk will help them to giveplenty of milk The

bedding in lime so potatoes on ions beets and tomatoes The claims made for lime as a preservative are that the fruit will notdry out any more than in the air that the skin is not hurt in the least and that the flavor is not impaired Airslacked lime is s probably what is used It probably owes its effect to its action upon the fungous germs on the outside of fruit If these are killed the mischief is for the most parkprevented since there is not likely to beI germs inside the fruit At any rate this is something worth trying It is an inexpensive way of keeping small quantities of fruit and vegetables The Grand Duke Sergius known as the chief of the rest tionists in Russi was killed by an assassin at Moscow a bomb being throwh under his carriage ashe was driving under the shadow of the

devoted to the interests of the city of Columbia and the people of Adair and adjacent countes Entered at the Columbia Postoffice as second class mail matter WED FEB 22 1905 The Louisville Evening Post is still threshing old straw and fight ing the wind so to speak and in our judgment is not lifting that publication an atom higher in the estimation of the people nor isvit doing any good for the city of Louisville or the courts of our State We are not sufficiently acquainted with the facts in the case as set out by the evidence to say whether or not the verdict against the Post was warranted but it is not conducive togood re suits for a defendant in a legal controversy after defeat to seek to reduce the standing of our courts and juries In a recent issue of that paper its editor says Certainly it appears that with us trial by jury is a failure Something must be done to give greater force to the verdict of juries The position of The Post touching the jur es of Jef ferson county indicates that the juries are created selected to accomplish a purpose known be fore trial regardless of evidence that justice is not the object of the courts and that the whole proceeding is but a travesty Mr Knott may have some grounds for complaint as to the verdict rendered He may have been a victim of legalmisfortunea i case justifying a different verdict on merits but unwarranted by clearly proven facts It may be that the jury was not warranted in giving a decision against the defendant this is unknown to us but to change fronts to turn his batteries from a saloon against the jury is of itself as distaste ful as it is unwise If The Post means to fight the gambling dens of its city if it is against corrupt methods debauchery and prosti tution then it seems that its powers should be directed to these Fspecificevils and not to seek to bring the jury system into disfa vor Again if The Post is actu ated by a spirit of righteousness if it truly desires better condi t ons it should not eternally inti mate that political bias has warp ed our whole system of govern ment in this State There are doubtless some instances in which a jury may be diverted from the facts by political feel ing There may be rank and rash verdicts but this has been true in all ages in every State In the main we believe that ju ries and judges discharge their dutieShonestly and fearlessly and if there is a State in the Union whose people extend mercy as well as justice it is our own be loved Kentucky If The Post will shake off its bitter partisan feelings if it will publish more good and less bad if it will pull grumbIlingwhich it has fallen and baSk in the sunlight peace and prog ress then it will have less room for complaints a higher and no bier sphere in which to labor We

circumstance that occurred in the neighberhood of Irvins Store several months ago but had just been given to the public The story runs about this way A couple of green goods men got in communication with parties living on Cumberland river and after several letters had passed an agreement was made for a meeting near Irvins Store The night for the meeting arrived and all the parties were at the designated place The green goods men exhibited a plate upon which United States bills were printed with the statement that it had been slipped from the Government printing office and that the bills made from it were genuine However we have to be very particular as detectives are on the watch After more of such talk they told the Cumberlahd river men that they would let them have ten thousand dollars for twelve hundred The agreement was made but before the twelve hundred was handed over the green goods men sug gested how it should be done as de tectives were on the watch Accord ingly the river men who had the twelve hundred to pay each one hav ing his part were placed in a row and the head man was told to give his por tion to the second the second to the thirdand so on until the twelve hund red reached the dealers When it was all in the thieves hallooed Detectives Detectives Run for your lives There was a general rush for tall timber and up to this writing nothing has been heard of the green goods men nor the twelve hundred dollars but the parties who met with them to make the pur chase are a little poorer but wiser The present condition of our public roads is convincing proof to every body that permanent good cannot be accomplished by the use of a grading ma chine alone After the grader stone should be placed on the roads other wise it is largely useless and the mon ey spent for uch work equal to a waste If good roads are ever made in this county stone must be used and noIamount of dirt will afford any relief Winter time when rains snows and freezes come The more dirt applied the deeper will be the mud Instead of spending the money to put dirt in the roads it seems to us that the Fiscal court had better buy a rock crusher and make roads that will stand the Winters A few miles of road could he built each year but even if only one mile could be made it would be much better than the system now in use that cost this county hundreds of dollars every year We trust the Fiscal Court will consider the importance of making roads and take j such steps as will give the people full value for every dollar spent We dOI not know what a crusher would nor how much it would require to op crate it per day but we do know that they are indispensable in making ideal roads At any rate we trust that the county will not further continue the use of the grading machine without follow ing it with a heavy coat of stone The grader does its work well but it can not make good roads when bad seasons follow and it is in the Winter and Spring that such conditions exist Evidently oil companies who have land in Adair and Russell counties leas ed mean business There is a party of surveyors now in Russell county compiling the number of acres leased in that territory They have been at workseveral months and it will take three more months to finish Russell at the end of which time they will come to Adair The oil companies pay so much per acre for the leased land and the amount paid in the two counties a considerable sum annually Mr isI a Patteson the cashier of the of Jamestown informed us that he paid out for the Nw Domain Company about nine thousand dollars annually The Bank of Columbia pays a large sum for the same company It does not look reasonable that all this money would be expended unless the company intended to commence

11905 ocf Difference in Bacon There is a great difference in the quality of Bacon even in the American market and the differ ence is even greater in England On the Chicago market are sev eral kinds of bacon selling at very different prices the difference being as much as four cents per pound says the Farmers Review This is a large margin The highpriced bacon is firm end has a considerable amount of lean in it But it differs from the other more in the texture of the fat In the highpriced bacon the fat r is firm and on frying remains firm The cheaper bacon goes to pieces on being cooked that is most of it changes into lard and what is left is of a crumbly and soft nature like the crack lings that come from leaf lard Most people who try this cheap bacon turn to the firmer kind though they pay a larger price for it It is really cheaper than the other on account of so much of the cheap kind disappearing i the form of liquid lard Proba bly the men that feed hogs do not realize the difference in the results that are obtainable by different methods of feeding It seems certain that if we are to s Jincrease the price of the hog is there must be a general increase in quality The public is

raising hogs cannot be reduced without loss to the breeder The thing to be found out about the cost IS whether a large cost or a small cost will produce the best relative results Many a farmer hasreduced the cost of producing pork to the point where the hogs grew slow 1y and were finally put on the marketin condition that made a good price impossible There 3s such a thing as feeding hogs too much and thus increasing i 1 t 1 h H 3 k 3L V rsay aS1 y Lv i l the cost by wasting food and the man that expects to make money out of hogs must guard against that It all comes back to the question of expertness in feeding This expertness is acquired only by close attention to the animals and their habits It cannot be transmitted orally or in any other way from one person to another The farmer that is too busy to devote much time to the matter of hog feeding need never ex pect to become expert in the mat ter of feeding Usually the hired man has not enough interest in the matter to study the feeding of the hogs The expense of hog raising can be reduced by the study of feeding crops There was a time when corn was the cheapest thing that could be fed a hog but that time has gone by and apparently gone for all time The increase in price of corn is forcing our farmers to consider other feeding material Ex 1000nIn the case of Berea College charged with the violation of the Day

Victims Were Blown to Pieces Birmingham Ala Feb 21By an explosion in the Virginia mines about 18 mil southwest of Birmingham more than a hundred union miners were entombed and it is believed that the entire number suffered an awful death Scores of vigorous rescuers are at work digging into the mine to relieve their friends and comrades on the inside The explosion is thought to have been caused by an accumulation of dust It is also believed that as the entire quota has probably been killed the details of the cause of the disaster will never be known Birmingham Ala Feb 22The scene at the Virginia mines where a terrific afterdamp explosion impris oned 160 men 700 feet below the sur face was the most gruesome and harI rowing that has ever been witnessed in the mining section of Alabama The corpses are frightfully mangled and disfigured and identification is al most impossible Many of them are so badly bruised and twisted and dis colored that negroes can not be told from white men The work of the diggers at the mine has been an inspiration to the spectators and every one has done all in his power to facilitate the work of rescue The excavation of the debris has been handicapped from the start The foul gases which had collected in the slope made necessary the use of safety lamps and it was found that less than a score of safety lamps were available in the district Union miners went to the scene from practically every mining camp within a radius of 25 miles of Virginia City to aid in the work of rescue One of the most gruesome sights witnessed was a mans head being carried out of the mine ina dinner basket It was found in this position and the flesh was almost entirely burned away from the skull Legs arms and mangled trunks were brought out in succession in this man nerBirmingham Ala Feb 23Seyen tysix bruised blackened and disfig ured bodies had been recovered from the illfated Virginia mines in which the awful explosion occurred on Monday afternoon entombing what is now confidently believed to be more than 150 of the best miners in the Binning ham district The rescuers are still heroically at work in the slope and as the diggers advance the bodies further in the mine are found to be worse burned and mutilated than those nearer the exteriorThe Birmingham district has come promptly forward in the matter of relieving the destitute families of the victims and mass meetings have been held in Birmingham Bessemer Ens ley and Pratt City for that purpose Hundreds of dollars have been sub scribed in the suburbs and the Birmingham Commercial club has raised more than 3000 for the sufferers Alabama district No 20 United Mine Workers of America voted 5 000 to be distributed among the bereaved families and this is considered- extraordinary generosity in

a warm friend of President Roosevelt Mr Riis lectured in this city Birmingham Ala Feb 24At S oclock 92 bodies had been recovered fixim the Virginia mines and the res cue work continues The foul odors from the decomposing bodies have now become so unbearable that the rescuers work in short relays and hundreds of pounds of disinfectants have been used to make further work possible It is estimated that there are at least 25 more bodies to be taken out and the rescuers have to finish up the level they are on now and open one more level There are three bodies in the bot tom of the lowest level which it is expected will require at least ten days to reach The bodies are those of the pumper and his assistants They are covered with water and since the pumping machinery wasruined by the explosion it will take much time to get the water out of the mine Goy Cunningham has officially instructed State Mine Inspector Gar and his as sistant to make a thorough investiga tion of the disaster

How the Exclusion Came About Pinckneyville Ill Perry county probably has the unique distinction of having the only church in the United States in which political faith is a bar to membership The Mound Covenanter Presbyterian church located near Cut ler in this county not content that the democratic party is shut out of polit ical councils of the nation would also debar the members of that party from means of grace or at least debar them from the means of grace as far as ob- taIning it through membership in that church is concerned The church has nothing in particular against the demo deedIupon which the house of worship is built decrees that anyone espousing the democratic cause cannot at the same time be identified with the Mound church The story of the exclusion of democrats from the church dates back to the days before the civil war Matthew Richmond a stanch and sturdy Scotch Covenanter moved from one of the southern states to the neighborhood in which the church is located He found that a number of his brothers in the faith had already settled here and it was but a little time until they felt the need of a house in which to worship Rich proIficient ground on which to erect the house of worship He tied a string to his gift however The genuine old Covenanter hated slav ery whose than anything else and he was even a little more bitter in his hatred than were his brethren He insisted on putting in the deed to the land a clause which said that all the demo crats or proslavery sympathizers for demoImembership in the church If the clause were ever violated the land was to revert heirsIThe congregation readily assented to this clause and the house of worship was built It is related by the older members of the church that just prior to the war one man James Campbell sought membership in the church and was admitted be fore the trustees discovered that he es poused democratic principles He was asked to withdraw Campbell demurred He vehemently protested that he was decidedly antislavery in his opinions but this would not satisfy the con scientious trustees They must obey the letter of the agreement as well as the spirit Accordingly Campbell was excluded from the church He was the last one to attempt to evade the behest of the donor of the building site HAS WORLDS EASIEST JOB Minnesota Senate Fireman Lifts His Hand Only to Sign for His
