Carnegafs plan of paying total abstainers 10 per cent more than he pays employees who drink is a prac ticalwar upon the rum demon Temperance lectures will never stamp out intemperance No appeal to man hood will be as universally responded to as the appeal of the employer who says Take a drink now and then draw 100 a month abstain from drink and draw 110 Emyloyers would be entirely within their right in inaugurating such f plans and union labor would doubtless favor the innovation as the extra pay is distinctly a bonus to abstainers and in no wise affects employees who do not wish to participate The value of the employees who do not drink is as a rule fully 10 per cent more than that of the employee who takes a drink when he wants it Life insurance companies are recognizing the fact that a mans chances of long life are better if he is an abstainer and plans abestainers at lower rates than can be ob tained by other men Let the youth of the land know that abstinence will be repaid by higher salaries and lower life insurance rates to say nothing of better health and longer lifeand the cause of temperance will rally more re cruits than can be mustered by any other meansEx When is a Store Advertised v A merchant of a Western city re cently made a trip to New York Call ing upon business friend he was ask ed How does your store really compare with others in your line in your city Are you setting or following the pace For reply the merchant took from his handbag several late issues of his saideLook over these papers I will mark for you my advertisements and those of my compeditors for three successive days Judging by these ads what is your own opinion of how my store stands in the race After some consideration and the use of a measuring tape the friend re plied On the showing here made if it represents the general average of a longer periodyour store stands first in your line in your city Yes it is true that in that showing I use eight inches more space than my next compeditor but it is safe to estimate a stores importance upon the space it occupies in its advertisements friendnteto make it a general rule among bus iness men Your newspaper advertising is an outlet for your enterprise and big enterprise requires a big out Now as a matter of fact continued the merchant my store is still inemy line in our city Buttwo years Iconoeluded that I would use as much space largestncamas ret sources I was then doing less than half as much business as the biggest store in the city employing less than half as many clerks occupying a build ing a third as large At the end of hadeless worry over the big advertising bills than I had previously had over the small ones and that Iwas fourth in the procession Then I concluded to use a little more space in this newspaper than the biggest store was using and for the past year I have done that The result that I am now a good second in the raceand a year from now the other mon will have changed places with me The other man has professed to be lieve that I woujd overdo the thing ethat I would tire of paying bills for space but my experience is that it seems easier to pay a bill of a hundred dollars when there is a balance m bank of two hundred than it is to pay a bill of fifty dollars with a balance of seven tyfive And I have found that suffi cient advertising has made a change of about that

Northerneneighbors He was known lat terly as the last surving mem ber of Jefferson Davis Cabinet but his title to his countrys es bydservices in the House of Repre sentatives and the Senate and by his influence as a good citizen Beginning life in poverty the future statesman passed through various experiences as a farmers boy a woodchopper and an In dian fighter Then he studied law settled in Texas was elect ed a Judge and soon made a name for himself by his vigorous en forcement of the law In 1856 he was sent to Congress When the war thebsecession of Texas and when Mr Davis organized Cabinet he was appointed Postmaster General Later he became Secretary of the Treasury When Jefferson Davis fled before the advance of Gen Grant he was accompanied by Judge Reagan who was captur ed with him and held a prisoner of war for severalmonths It was after the war that Mr Reagan showed the sound judg ment and fine qualities that made him a power for great good He preached friendship between the sections He urged his people to let bygones be bygones He call ed for a reunited country Ac cepting the result of the war as final he believed it was the part of wisdom to shape all public leg islation accordingly So ardent was he in championing this pro gram that he wrote an open let torto the people of Texas urging the passage of laws for the pro tection of negroes and the grant ing to them or both civil and po litical rights with an educational qualificationThe of his State felt too deeply the sting of the war to support Judge Reagans generous views and they subjected him to the severest criticism and denun ciation In 1874 however their sentiment underwent a change They realized that he was right and they sent him to Congress as a member of the House or Rep resentativesAt Reagan took a prominent place in the national legislative halls He was espec ially active in framing the Inter state Commerce Act at the same time standing up strongly against any clause that might endow the National Commission with power to fix railroad ratesa power which the National House thatI adjourned last Saturday showed a disposition to grant and which President Roosevelt is understood

hour of one oclock 2000 men form in two lines before a certain mission on the Bowery New York City each to recieve at the hands of charity his cup ofI not coffey and loaf of bread By actuai count one of the coldest nights this winter only one in twentythree of this procession had anything that could by a stretch of imagination be called an overcoat and probably not one in fifty had a home Among this army of charity seekers are some brought here by dissipation some by sickness some by a temporary run of run hard luck and not a few because they have never learned to do some one thingwell to be masters o far trade insteadof slaves to circuJ stances It is touching to see the line of warmbroom through which they have to pass until crowded out again into the stormy night by those behind them Farmer boys after you h a ve dreamed of a gay socisl life in a great city of a delightful home and fine clothes and before you finally decide to leave the farm give a little study to the fam6us breadline of this Bowery mission Then if you still insist on go ing become something before you go study some trade or some profession Dont join the great army of drifters of which th is bread line is

cCRAB N AARI KcHtor Democratic newspaper devoted to the interests ef the city of Columbia and the people of Adair and adjacent countieLV Entered at the Columbia Postoffice as second class mail matter WED MAR 15 1905 We want it distinctly under stood that no cut in the price of The News has been made to sub scribers in this county and if at any time we should decide to re- duce the price of the paper for any length of time it will be advertised It is but a few weeks until the county printing will be let and according to law the paper having the largest cir culation in the county should re ceive it TheN ews has been pub lished for over seven years and has recieved the county printing one time on a sworn statement of having the largest circulation This was UNDER Judge BUTLERS administration VSince then the printing has gone to the other paper two or three times without giving this paper even a chance to submit a bid or to show its legal right by submit ing its circulation In 1902 how ever the Magistrates ordered the printing to go to the paper hav ing the largest circulation We were notified to make a sworn statement of our bona fide sub scription in this county which was done The pther paper did likewise The circulation was in our favor but the publisher of the other sheet withdrew that statement and two days later made another sworn statement in which the circulation was made over 200 larger and on this last statement it received the printing Last year it was again sub mitted and went to the Spectator by reason of its circulation but a few weeks prior to the letting we weie informed that it was taking subscribers for a short time at a remarkably low price in this countyevidently preparing its list to receive the printing That proposition was not adver tised in that paper but carried out by correspondence and work ers in different parts of the coun ty It was successful in its scheme and received its reward Now we are again aware of the same tactics to bolster up for the approaching emergency Up to date no advertisement has appeared making public its proposi tion but we have received the in formation that it is now giving 3 months for 10 cents It dont take a college graduate to deter mine the prime object in view For the benefit of that publica tion we desire to say that The News will not bid against it for the county printing because we refuse to go after business in that manner in which it has received it The existence of the News is not staked on the county printing and even if it were we would let it go down rather than institute low andgr5velingmethods The The1Newsisers who seek the trade of this section Our list does not work up and down like a ripsaw but has had a steady increase all the while We will not pad our list directly nor incUr ctly to secure county printjiQf 7iior any other business that must be secured by means of circulation andconse queiitly refuseio go against meth ods we will not use We cheer fully give the above information to those who want a cheap paper for a short while and for those who may want that publication ix receive the printing y t V 1 V4i Y T ir y L Our article of last week and the week before touching the present system of road making in this county were not intended to provoke a discussion with any one but the county Judge seems to construe them as a slap at the road machine and a dictation to the Fiscal court We are not inclined to pluck one feather from the crown of any man nor discourage any movement that tends to better public conditions We have no ax to grind and no political ambition to follow do not hold office and never asked for a position of public trust but in common with the great bulk of humanityare ready to approve the right though often slow to expose and condemn wrong We have no desire to dictate to the Fiscal court and it is gener ally understood that the News has never suggested a move on the part of the public that it would not heartily assist Why the Judge should not credit us with true motives and an honest desire to aid the building of good roads is indeed strange for no one in this community has worked harder for public improvements though many may have accomplished more In his wri tings of last week he claims that much permanent good has been accomplished by the use of the road machine and advocates continuing its use while we be lieve that the good done is but of few months and full of touble andunless stone can be applied to the grades made it would be wise to set it aside The making of substantial and permanent roads can not be accomplished by the use of dirt alone and the filling in or rounding up with dirt is almost as fleeting as our sea Sons The grader will not work to advantage on rough places stony ground or where the earth is full of roots neither can it be successfully operated in real hard land Its use is limited to probably less than 50 per cent of our roads There are some places which it can be used to itIthe strain of1heavy traffic in Win ter time From the standpoint of expense measured by the permanent good accomplished we believe it an expensive luxury but the Judge takes the other view and says The actual ex pense of running the road ma chine outside of a few repairs during the year 1902was 29312 During the year 1903 it was 37617 and during last season it was 42525 making a total of 109457 in three years Such a burden Will the News be fair enough to examine the record of settlements made for those years by the receiver of the Adair county road fund and Judge of Adair county court and print the above facts in its columns 7 Doubtless the above amount fully covered the expense of horse power and paid the men who op erated its steerage wheels but the expense growing out of its purchase and use should be charged up to its operation If our memory is correct prior to the purchase of the Machine this county had no Road Commissioner but the Overseers did their work as well then as now After the Machine was pur chased it is our recollection that the county Judge performed the duties of Road Commissioner in 1902 and was paid for said ser vices out of the road fund In 1903 he again performed said duties but the court of Appeals decided that a county Judge could not draw a salary for such serncsso in looking up the record of settlement w find the following October term Fiscal court 1904 Whereas T A Mur riathforandheldthatnotblng services as supervisor ot roads i N r ti i iii fffe 1r N Y 1 44Jk fI iI rJgfI o k l ift1 = X f J r t i J l Ith h and whereas it was necessary for him to use his horse and buggy and whereas at the last term of this court he was allowed about thirty dollars for the use said horse and buggy and the court having considered said matter it is now ordered that T A Murrell be allowed one hun dred dollars in addition to the thirty dollars heretofore allowed for the use of his horse and bug gy while he was supervisor du ring the year 1903 to be paid out of the Road Fund all the Justices being present and all voting yea If this horse and buggy claim should not be char ged to operating expenses of the Machine then we can not place it Since the introduction of the Machine there has been a special levy each year for roads In 1903 the levy was 10 cents on the 100 In 1904 it was llr and the settlement made January 1st 1904 for the preceding year shows that a sum total of 269875 was in the Judges hands for road purposes and that he had paid out 262031 carrying over to 1904 a balance of 7444 It shows that he received something over 124 for disbursement which was paid out of the road fund At least a part of this is a just charge to operating expenses and had it not been for that Ma chine we firmly believe that such an expense would ha ie been rwholely unnecessary The battle of Mukden which lasted for several days w as one continued series ofsuccesses for the Japanese Kuropatkin suf fered great losses both in his standand retreat and at this hour is fighting and falling back It is a case of being out general ed andout numbered and almost wiped from the scene of action Until the stragling forces unite at Tie Pass or Harbin for the next stand their strength nor losses can not be estimated The losses on each side is appall ingand the battles of Mukden and vicinity will be recorded as the greatest slaughter

proof that the door of hope is not closed to the deserving negro and theSouth convinced that its demand for fair play if negroes are to be appointed to office has at lastbeen recognized Should objection to the Presi dents action be nade by t he Northern press it will have its source solely in race predjudice as the man chosen is in all respects save color fully qualified for the performance

promotion when he chances to be a near neighbor a valued polilical ally and by them an admitted social equal and friendMr Roosevelt is heartily to be congratulated for his wisdom in discerning that

but not all the people all the time It was with regret and some surprise it was found the answer had to be that careful search fail ed to find it anywhere with bet ter authority thanas Lincoln said but where or when he said it was left a mystery- It seems the inquiry was wide spread and in every case proved futileCol Hay was appealed to butthat biographer of Presi dent Lincoln had to acknowledge he never encountered the sen tence when making minute inves tigation of Lincolns speeches papers letters and recorded say ings An Ohio Congressman who had been asked the question re ferred the inquiry to the library v of congress where if anywhere the information could be obtain ed The Washington Post reports the result Assistant Librarian Spofford made a written reply in which he says the sentenced o not occur in any of Lincolns writings adding that Mr Lin coins secretary and associat of Col John Hay in writing thej elaborate biography of LincGlnt told Spofford the alleged Lincoln saying was spurious Librarian Spofford says the real author of the popular sentence was Phine as T Barnum the famous showman who fooled the people more sucessfu1lythan any oiKer- man of his time In
