Columbia were nOt sur prised lasMonday afternoon when the announcement came Mrs Kate At khis is dead The end came at 31 oclock and while it was generally known that her condition was critical many of her relatives and friends could not realize that she was dead She was a daughter of James and JKittie Turner and was born and reared near Milltown this county and when death came she was fiftyfive years old When quite a young woman she was married to Mr W J Atkins with whom she lived happily until his death which occurred about two years ago Be3ides a host of relatives and friends she leaves five sons all grown but oneall being at her bedside but James DakotaI deceased confessed her Savior united with the presbyteri- an Church and was a consistent Christian until removed by death She was a victim of heart trouble In health she was ever ready to ad minister to the sick and was one of the kindest women the neighborhood ever knewThe funeral services conducted by Rev W C Clemens assisted by Rev J P Scruggs were held at tHe residence Tuesday afternoon at2 oclock and the interment was in the family burying ground on the farm of Mr W B Roe Many attended the last scene manifesting the deepest sorrow and extending the hand of sympathy to the surviving loved ones Went to Tennessee Mr Knott Youug son of Mr Robert Young of Burksville anda nephew of Mr J H Young this place visited here several days of last week Dur ing his stay in Columbia he was quite attentive to Miss Minnie Hudson a handsome and popular young lady a daughter of the late W H Hudson He returned to Burksville last Friday accompanied by his cousin Miss Emma Young and Miss Hudson- It seems that Mr Young and Miss Hudson had laid their plans and Sun day morning they left Burksville for Tennessee and were married during the day It is reported here that a mem ber of the family to which Mr Young belonged overtook the couple near the Tennessee line and tried to persuade then to return home and get married saying there was no objections but they preferred to continue their journey to Tennesse The grooms father is a prominent merchant the newly married son being one of his salesmen hence we conclude the couple will reside in Burksville The News extends its very best wishes Primary Called The Senatorial Committee for the 16th district comprising the counties of Adair Cumberland Clinton Russell and Wayne met

is Live out of doors andlaugheven if you cant put cash in the bank Ponder these words of the Chi cago scientist r Are you burning the candle at aboth ends Are you breathing foul air and neglecting the sun light Are you puting all your mind upon business and money gettnig Are you disturbing nature by irregularity of habits Are you spending in reckless dissipation or ceaseless dollarhunting the hours that should be used for sleeping Are you starving your body in rorder to stuff your purse Are you wearing out your brain with worry Are you giving more heed to exausting demands of the golden calf than the exhilarating joys of natureAre you forcing yourself to car- y on your shoulders mote than your strength can standIAre you and children to stay in pentup rooms to stagnate orto fade Are you pinching and grinding your employes injuring them physically and weakening them with anemia If so you are helping to fill the insane assylums and augment the ranks of degenerates Yon are i doing your

and workmen go where it is green When you feel like worrying smile When you feel like smiling laugh Banish worry from your lexicon forever Figures themselves show tha American people must do some

Gov Alva Adams Democrat who was elected by a majority of 15000 votes was ousted from office and fr t t 1 4f a rr y iF7 v his RepubliQan competitor has been seated Such acts of parti san unfairness and tyrany of pow er call for the loudest condemnation on the part of all fair men regardless of political association The sanctity of the ballot and the verdict of the people acting in beesn ruthlessly overthrown simply because the opposite party had a majority in the legislature and an rer pudiated at the polls by ta large majority has ben seated in the office of Governor ase serting itself among the people as of infinitely more value than party advantage and insisting at the polls that integrity justice and fairness shall be the chief qualifications of all those who are intrusted with office or power Unless this is done the rape of the Governorship of Colorado will be repeated again and again in oth er states until our whole election system shall become a farce and a mockery and the very foundation of our Government the sanc tity and purity of the ballot shall be destroyed The action of Governor Adams under this deliberate robery is one to be commended to the people He submitted to the forms of law even when they were used to deliberately rob him of an office to which he was fairly elected and went quietly to his home to await the time when the people in their might will right this wrong which has been done himI and his party How different isI his action from Taylors and his crowd in Kentucky Adams against a known threft entered only his protest and a future ap peal to the people Taylor and his crowd upon only a claim of election and before the Legislature had decided the contest marked the capital at Frankfort with a cowardly and dastardly assassi nation which will ever remain a blot upon the state Even if the Democrats were threatening to do in Kentucky what the Repub licans actualy did in Colorado the attention of the public is called to the peaceable

the strongest and most influential west of the Alleghanies The most eloquent and learned minis ters of Kentucky and adjoining States particuarly of Virginia preached at Old Beech The annual May meeting until twentyfive years ago was an event of much importance to Beech Creek people and fo r months in advance the work of preparation for this meeting was in progress People from all the adjoining counties made it a point to be there upon that occasion and now many of the old people remember the May meeting and relate many interesting facts associated with it Tradition has it that when the t4eWar of 1812 between Great Britain and the United State s was declared a courier from Virginia coming by the way of Har rods Fortstopped at Old Beech and informed the people that the

each seat and notices prohibiting the spitting upon the floor The smoking cars have been filthy from tobacco juice and saliva upon the floor The idea of railroads providing a car for people to use tobacco and then no place to spit upon the floor made these cars absolutely repulstve to many travelers who enjoy the use of the weed As Pat Rush of Hart county use to call them the spit cars are to be abolished and everybody both from theI standpoint of cleanliness and health will rejoice to know it InI the other passenger coaches spit toons are to be provided at each for fruit peelings and

country editors get rich Here is the secret of success A child is born in the neigborhood the attending physcian gets 10 the editor gives the loud lunged youngster and the happy parents a send and gets 0 It is chrisened the minister gets 1 and the editor gets 00 Its grows up and marries the editor publishes another long- winded flowery article and tells a dozen liars lies about the beauti ful and accomplished bride the minister gets 1000 and a piece of cake and the editor gets 000 In the course of time it dies and the doctor gets from 500 to 100 the minister perhaps gets 15 the undertaker perhaps gets 15 to 50 the editor publishes a no tice of the death an obituary two column long lodge and society resolutions a lot of poetry and a free card of thanks and gets 0000 No wonder so many

morning In my haste to get downtown I rushed away with only a little change in my pocket To be exact when I boarded the car I found I had only 30 cents fareIgoing to the office and decHed to- go into one of those hurry up restaurants for a cup of coffee and a roll before transacting business I had never been in one feltIseemed that the waitress had X ray eyes and could see that I was possessed of only 25 cents- Doughnutsercrullers dont keep rolls she rattled feltIperson Around me patrons were regaling themselves with ham eggs sausages chops and other delicacies I felt that everybody was regarding me with pity That waitress had a megaphone voice anyway Suddenly as I was munching my crullers the thought occurred to me Wonder if I have the the quarter Perhaps I dropped it in the car I made a wild clutch at my pocket from the out side and was relieved to find the coin still there tackled the secondcruller with lighter heart then got another nervous chill Suppose the coin should be bad or plugged The cashier will re fuse it It will look as though I deliberately planned the thing having no other money and I will be accused of trying to beat the restaurant out of 10 cents worth of food My appetite deserted me at the thought I longed to take the coin out and examine it but the waitress had her Xray eye on me waiting to see if I wanted anything else and besides the table was well filled with patrons Well I forced those two crul lers down drank half the coffee took the check from the haughty waitress and walked to the cashiers s desk in fear and trembling First I took out my cardcase as though to change a bill then pre tended to think better of it It was perfectly good in every respect and I went out with the 15 cents change cursing myself for my infernal nervousness You

following having been Republi cans in the first place slumped back to the Republicans in this fight while enough Republicans voted for the Wells business administration to return him to power The defeat of the proposed bond is sue will be a severe blow to the friends of the administration and the million aire club which has for its object the increase of the citys population and the improvement of the municipal in stitutions This result is explainedby the closeness of the contest the majority of those who voted against Wells voting also against the bond issue It being necessary

breathing For indigestion take a warm drink before retiring or when sleepless Drink warm water warm milk weak tea or cocoa and breathe deeply yor mental distress mere will power is the best Close the eyes and as fast as the thoughts come drive them out Carry on in the mind a house cleaning process Sweet sleep and plenty of it will go a great way toward keeping women young When sleep departs wrinkles come It is by sleep that we gain strength for another day Sleep is to the brain what foodis to the body Here are a few simple tried rules for driving away insomnia Go to bed warm Never go to bed with cold feet If the events of the day have been trying read a short light story before retiringLeave the window down at the top and protect the bed from draughts As soon as the body touches the bed relax the muscles shut the eyes and make ready to sleep Nothing drives away sleep more quickly than the thought that one cant sleep The Goon old rimes According to one of the old English chronicles royalty in 1234 had nothing for a bed but a stack of straw Even in the days of Queen Elizabeth at least half of the population of London slept on boards Blocks of wood serv ed as pillows

BOARDERS Electricity as a Motive Power If we could look into the in terior of a mechanism in connect ion with the trucks beneath the car we should find an apparatus consisting essentially of coils of wire adjusted compactly about an axis and closely fitted between the poles of a powerful electromagnet These coils of wire constitute what is called an armature When the current is switched on it passes through this armature as well as through the electromagnet and the mu tual attractions and repulsions between the magnetic poles and the electric current in the coils of wire cause the armature to revolve with such tremendous trainIthetransmitted to an axle of the car wheels by a simple gearing This current reaches the car through the third rail or in case of the trolley through an over head or an underground wire All that is essential is that some conducting medium such as an iron rail or a copper wire shall form an unbroken connection be tween the motor apparatus and the central dynamo where the power is generated The central dynamo in question will be found if we visit the power house to be a ponderous affair suggestive Jo the untech nical mind of impenetrable mys teries Yet in reality it isa de vice essentially the same in con struction with the motor which drives the train That is to say its unit of construction consists of a wirewound armature revolving on an axle and fitted between the poles of an electromagnet Here however thesequence of the phe nomena is reversed for the arma ture instead of receiving a cur rent of electricity is made to revolve by a belt adjusted to its axle and driven by a steam engine The wire coils of the ar mature thus made to revolve cut across the socalled lines of mag netic force which connect the two poles of the magnet and in so doing generate a current of induced electricity which flows away to reach in due course the third rail or the trolleywire and ultimately to propel the motor Dr Henry Smith Williams in Harpers
