product I have from a very small beginning within four years set- a little over onefourth of an acre and have 80000 seed that will come up this spring I have 160000 seed of the 1904 crop stratified that will be ready to plant this fall and germinate next Spring Last year I sold 15500 worth of dry roots most of which were cultivated wild roots and in that bunch 1 had one root that weighed near 2 oz andsold on the Louisville market for 110This was a fiv year old culti vated root I have in a quiet way watched the market and the interest in the growth of the plant and my opinion is that the productionis not keep ing pace with the consumption and if the price is affected within the next few years it will eipfvorothe pro ducer There is every reason to expect the highest prices for firat

cannot practice without a State license does not affect those who prac tice the doctrine as a religious belief according to the syllabus of the decis ion given out today The court saysThe giving of

give such treatment for a fee is not an interference with the rights of conscience and of worship Home Chats The first hint of Springtime which the city dwellers have is the impossi bility of getting their supplies food fuel etc delivered on time as the side streets are practically impassible and the drivers nave to carry their load by piecemeals on their own shoulders to the customers living away from paved thoroughfares The poor horses have to sweat and steam and struggle so far as it is possible for them to haul the wagons and are then left to take cold while thtlr drivers deliver the goods on foot and indulge in saying things Especially does it appeal to ones sympathy to watch the patient horses struggling through mud up to their knees with the wagon wheels imbeded up to their hubs and almost undraga ble to coin a word while the irrita ble driver whips and lashes them out of all reason Swear I should think so And the pity of it is that neither the swearing or the lashings do one bit of good for the poor animals simply can not get along They would do just as much work for kind words The first hint the housewife has of the rr breaking up of Winter is when the sun comes out some fine day and shows her how dirty her house really js despite the fact that she has worn her self out trying to keep things immac ulate The awful fact that things must be torn up and treated to a dose of renovation dawns on her in an overwhelming flood of light and the minute she begins the warm delicious sun shine wooes her out to the yard where she finds her neighbor awaiting her and the first thing she realizes is that it is dinner time and the beds are not made while she has spent the golden hours drinking in the sunshine and deciding what gardening she is going to do There will be more delicious morn ings plenty of them and if she has thought to toss the bed clothes over the chairs and open all the windows there will be nothing lost by her absorption of the sunshine and sweet air If she will do this often enough she will laugh thge stronger in the goodness of the world about her and the strength the air bath brings her will enable her to do more work in less time an da more

convictions For this Ross lost his seat in the Senate The subscribers to his news papers stopped their subscriptions the advertisers withdrew their advertise ments he was boycotted and driven out of

introduced by Deligate Rodey of New Mexico and pushed through by Represen tative Calderhead of Kansas It will undoubtedly pass the Senate It is os tensibly based on the fact that Ross was a brave

extremes if he looks to the right it is a robber if he looks to the left it is the same He is between the devil and the dark blue sea only waiting to know whose victim he is soon to become but with

burdens is our humble prayer In the western section of Ken tucky peanut raising has been found to be decidedly profitable The nuts are said to be better than any in the country of finer quality and the quantity larger per acre than those raised in Virginia and Tennessee the biggest peanut raised in the Union Pea nuts raised on the Exall place in McCracken county this year yielded 175 per acre

dead letter was given in the trial in a Commonwealth case in the Cir cuit court last week says The Springfield Leader For years past at each term of court in this county as well as perhaps almost every other county in the state there have been one or more prosecutions and convictions for the offense of shooting on the public highway There is a heavy penalty against the prac tice which has at times been a favorite one with some charac ters of recklessly firing pistols while on the public roads of the county often to the danger and terror of peaceful citizens The case in point was against an al leged offender arrested on that charge But the lawy rs have unearthed drthe courts have de cided recently a point which makes it dead easy to escape con viction of the charge of shooting on the public highway All a man has to do now to justify his shooting as many shots as then contains is to shoot at some thing It may not be anything more than a fence post or a bump in the road but just so it is an object the excuse goes The courts have said that before a conviction can be obtained the defendant must be proven to be guilty of reckless firing at random on the public road The defendant in the case referred to claimed he believed that he fired at a post which in the eyes of the law he was fully justified in doing The post probably neededa shot or two anyway They have an eye for business out in Portland Oregon As soon as it was known that Senator Mitchell Representative Herman and other prominent citizens had been indicted for complicity inland frauds a man who owns an opera house

For several months Louisville has been getting worse stocked with counterfeit money of all denominations until at the present there is danger in a bankroll The bills that have been shoved in Louisville are the one and two dollar issues that have been raised to fives and these are not hard for the aver age person to detect but the be 8 gus silver coins are high class imitations and if they are not sounded will pass most almost anywhere except at the banks The impressions are excellent and the milling which is often the weakest point in counterfeit coin looks as if it had been bone in a United States mint For the past ten days the drug stores and groceries in the East End have been compelled to hand back imitations and in some cases they have been unfortunate enough to accept

Wednesday BY THE h idaif Bounty Newsfio I 1IcOJaPOaaTE CRAH R ARIA FAUar Democratic newspaper devoted to the interests of the city of Columbia and the people of Adair and adjacent counties Entered at the Columbia Postoffice as second Is leematter WED MAR 22 1905 There was no thought or desire on our part of having to continue the discussion of road making when our first article was writ ten but it seems that The News is held under a powerful and must give a strict accoun and defend its position on every question in which it takes a part and which does not appeal to the judgment and pander to the am bitions and aspirations of our ICounty Judge the editor of The Spectator From our initiatory effort in newspaper work to the presentwe have tried to deal fair ly and honestly both with men and matters Our efforts to aid and encourage enterprise affecting this part of the State and our active participation in the moves that pointed to better conditions in Columbia and Adair county are too wellknown to be doubted even under the incessant fire of a County Judge who doubtless feels the elevating effects of official position From time to time The News has been the medium through which we have suggest ed such changes and such action as appeared to be for the public good and no one save the match less County Judge has question ed our sincerity of purpose We advocate the making of roads not doing patch work for that is tithe duty of all ablebodied citi zens between the ages of 18 and 50 and our law provides specifi cally for it All along before the days of Judge MurrelPs mighty strokes against mud the people kept the roads in as good condi tion for general use as they have been through the winters since the Machine was first used The way to make good perma nent roads is so plain that argu ment is unnecessary and if a tax is levied for road purposes we can not understand why any man shouldnot favor making roads that will stand through our win ters and riot disappear under a few heavy loaded wagons Since Judge Murrell took the oath of office several thousand dollars onlthedemonIstrateyear brings more mud In de fense of its use and cheapness of operationhe quotes another coun ty judge who states that it works to good advantage in Hardin county and that the average cost per mile there for grading is 500 It does not come so cheap in Adair and has evidently cost f from five to ten times that much The Judge knows full well that we have not opposed the use of the grader where the people would follow it with stone or gravel He knows that an agree ment of this kind was made von the part of those interested in making a good road from the town limits to the creek and that the editor of this paper was one of the active participants in that work He undoubtedly remem bers that we stated to him that we did not want the use of the grader on that road until its completion with gravel could be a guaranteed ancj it was not used until that was done His efforts in his writings to show insincerity on our part and to impress the people that he has made a sacra r fA 7 l x fr r k fipe to forward the general inter est andwatch with zealous care the counties resources must be measured by effort and results Since like begets like we can not consistently pass the many little compliments hurled at us in his writings without speaking of his nlagnanimityandshrewd ness There is no doubt in our mind as to his close watch over the financial interest of the coun ty After the Court of Appeals had decided that a County Judge could not receive pay as Road Commissioner he only asked and received 130 for the use of his horse and buggy He is the only County Judge in the history of this county who ever demonstra ted such shrewdness and mani fested such interest in taking care of the public money collect ed for making roads Thats Judgetbut there are those who know his position in regard to them and who were thoroughly Jn touch with his masterly efforts along that line Two bridges have been built since his induction in to office one on the Somerset road the other on the Stanford both within a mile of this town He opposed their building but managed to get a finger in the pie The Magistrates elected Mr James Garnett Jr Bridge Commissioner each year He was responsible to the Court for a strict compliance of the contract on the part of the builders He performed his duty andre ceived 50 for said services each year The County Judge pre sented a claim for 50 for his watchful care in protecting the county in this York in 1902 and it was paid The next year he likewise claimed 50 for valuable services and itwas paid The year 1903 seems to have been a good one Received from bridge fund 50 for horse and bug oflroad fund 130 for paying out road fund 124 Total 304 It seems to us that the salary of County Judge ought to be suffi cient to fully compensate without having to skirmish on the outside but since it does not measure up to his desires we are convinced that he knows how to make the unexpected happen Buy a crusher and make roads that is our theory The Republican Legislature of Colorado decided in favor of the Republican contestant for Gov en or of that State overturning aI nl of more than 100001 AdamsIThehe majority was nearly 3000 a few years ago waswon by MrIGoebel Democratic and he was assassinated The Democrats of Colorado led by Mr Adams submit to legal rob bery without riot or bloodshed The Democrats of the entire country submitted to a steal of the Presidency in 1876 and life was safe but judging from Re publican protestations and the ruthless striking down of Wm Goebel for winning his contest those not familiar with party re cords would believe that he was the only political sinner that ever livedand the assassination a blessing Democrats of Colorado are showing that legal decisions though bad are far better than riot and assassination The trouble between Russia and Japan is

Itsnot our purpose to continue a discuseioiiV a trivial nature bu1ui article of last week in regard to the methods employed by the publisher of the Spectator to receive the county printing has been so answered as to necessitate a reply In the first place we desire to say that the News did re ceive the printing twice and would have so been stated in our article but not un til we were reading the proof did we observe that the omission had been made and it could not then be inserted without a complete overhauling We received the printing when let by Judge Butler by certifying to our circu lation arid it showing to be greater than the Spectator and the further fact that our bid was less The second time it was agift from the magistrates who said they had decided to alternate between the two papers It is not the few paltry dollars we miss in this matter that prompts our article but to show the methods employed by the op position In 1903 the magistrates directed Mr T R Stults to attend to the printing and in the face of the law he attempted to place it accordingly He handed us a paper in which we were required to swear to the number of our bonafide subscribers in Adair county stating that the Other paper had already turned in theirs After counting our list twice and leaving off less than one dozen copies we mail free we made oath that we had inside of the county some thing over 700 This was handed to the clerk late in the evening The next morning we asked who gets the print ing and he replied that the others were not satisfied The Spectator list as sworn to so stated by the clerk was 30 odd less than ours Two days later anotherv statement was made and the clerk told us that it was over 800 A jump of more than lOOper dayv0n this 1ast statement the printing was received If the first statement was not correct then it should not haye been turned in and sworn to if correct honor and honesty would have prompted the average man to have abided by the results but not so in this case not satisfied and two days later turned in another sworn statement of ove 200 more If the first was correct then how about the second If both were correct then such a sudden bound in a subscription list is unprecedented in Southern Kentucky It is not probable and only within the limits of a mere possibility that such a thing happened If it did not occur then how could both statements be true If the first statement was correct and the latter was based on a stuffed list where is there an honest man who would endorse such methods Such proceedings are far be yond the limits of fair square dealings according to our ideas of right and wrong of honor and dishonor The planting of trees is now in order and within the last few days many wa ter maples were set in the yards of

the natural hub of a vast region of the State lying South and East of it which is yet un developed he says There are still counties in this sectonthat have no railroad line within their borders These counties are rich in forest and mine products We feel that Lexington will be called on more and more every day to supply the everincreasing wants of this new country and the new people who go there and what is wanted and not made in Lexington will have to be brought from elsewhere For this reason an effort is being made to lo cate manufacturing industries in the farfamed City of Laws iOur section may yet contribute a share not to be despised to the prosperity Lexington longs for As to the prospects of our proposed railway Mr Azbill said to a representa tive of the News yesterday We are working steadily on with definjte plans and purposes and with reasonably good hopes for the enterprise The propos ed extentions involve delays of course I have assurances from reliable sources that the capital witH which to construct the road will be forthcoming when we get our proposition in shape and demonstrate that the representations made as to it can be realized To do this we must locate the extension secure the rights of way survey and make plans and estimates and then have an expert go over the whole to inspect and report All this takes time and more patience than some of our citizens seem to have anyIsucceed When asked for specifi information as to the state of negotiations Mr Azbillsaid appreciate your natural desire f r exact knowledge i but beyond repI2 nothing to say

patience and practical philosophy of life he lived to be the oldest man in this section of the State No man ever lived in Adair county who was more highly appreci ated by all who knew him All liked

heard an excellent sermon at the Baptist church delivered by the pastor Rev JPScruggs There is not a more popular minister in Adair county than R v Scruggs his friends being numerous throughout this immediate section all denominations are very fond of hearing him Columbia is his first charge and the people would disUke very much to part from him Sunday night we were at the Methodist church and heard a number of interesting talks given by members of the Epworth League This organization was perfected about a year ago and it is evidently doing a noble work Mrs K W Murrell led the meeting and after reading a chapter in the Bible she called for SCrIp- tural readings and short talks The subject was temperance The speech of Mr F R Winfrey and the talk by Mrs SheIIydeserve special mention The readings were all good At the close of the League meeting RevF E Lewis delivered an excellent sermon There is one thing very noticable in discourses delivered by this gentleman They are free from grammatical errors and Very pointed The other ministers of Columbia like the ones mentioned above are gentlemen of character their congregations being well pleased with them and their wcfrk No man in Columbia desires to ex tend more courtesy to friends and callers than I do yet a newspaper office like all other lines of business can only devote a small portion of its time to entertaining The work of the Com positor is of the greatest importance Some errors made can easily be correc ted while others are difficult and al most impossibl without a complete overhauling requiring much time and annoyance consequently the ones who are at the cases have no time to devote to other matters and do correct work No person would seek to engage a clerk in a store in a social chat when the clerk was busy yet some forget that a compositors time is of equal value to the welfare of my business and even more so for we are compelled to do so much work in a given time The composing room has been cut off from the main entrance so all who may have business in the office will not disturb those at the cases Those who desire to call and read will find the latest pa pers in the front room with all the ac commodations heretofore enjoyed be fore the change was made Those who wish to visit the ffice will receive a warm welcome but we trus that so cial visits in our composing room will cease Again we

the Wastes Employ ing Idle Workmen London With its characteristic commercial spirit England has evolved a plan by which it can at the sa time feed its idle tens of thousati and reclaim some at least of its lost millions of acres In 1867 Great Britain lost by the seas inroads 56964260 acres of agricultural land in 1880 56815354 acres more were reported to have been to yin the same manner in 1890 56786199 acres more had slipped away into the sea and the last report that of 1900 showed that an additional 56782053 acres had gone Nor is it only from the attrition of the sea that the coast is suffering the formation of marsh lands where the sea eats into formerly valuable arable land being constantly on the increase To replace much of this waste marshland and build up in other places where great gaps have been made i the coast line by the rolling off of hundreds of thousands of acres Walter Long president of the board of trade has evolved a plan by which hundreds of thousands of idle men in England are to be employed The first attack will be made on the Lincolnshire coast Work of th kind has been attempted before in addIedmarshes on the banks of the Tay and of the Forth In addition to the Lin- colnshire work reclamation labors a to be carried on in the neighborho- of Londonthat is from Albert Dock to the Nore the Thames estuary The plan in this latter locality is to dredge the channel and use the dredged matter in making foresho instead of dumping it into the sea as is now done From Woolwich Hammersmith there are stretches foreshore which if reclaimed would be of enormous value The publ park at Fulham which was reclaim at a cost of 165000 is now worth 825000ISTEED CHEWS AND DRINKS Engine Horse at Canton Md Enjoys Quid Between Fires andILikes Beer enIginebut he

prevailing style in womens shoes in the future The result will be that women will have bigger feet than now but none of them are expected to kick about it- Responsibility for the innova tion rests upon the women them selves the dealers declare and they add that as style after all is only what the majority of well bred persons choose to select they can make bobnailed boots or the wooden sabote of the Europ ean peasantry as fashionable for the grande dame of Fifth avenue as the tapering Louise Quienze affair that now holds the vogue In other words when an article of wearing apparel is recognized as the proper thing it is prop er whether it is or not to use a Gilbertian phrase Another interesting feature of the convention was the almost unanimous agreement that patent leather shoes are the most unreliable that can be bought Con siderable discussion was devoted to this and the consensus of opinion was that no kind of pa tent leather could be guaranteed from cracking and peeling almost as soon as purchased although there are exceptions to the rule Every pair of shoes of this kind it was said has a notice to that effect pasted on the inside when it leaves the factory but
