old friends and schoolmates occur fin your paper frequently and to these I extend best wishes One TaylorI islonethat you have ever taken In life Another name that I remember very vividly was that of John Eubank of Cane Valley Ky who was a mere boy when I last saw him His ad appears in your columns But I would be very glad to see items from my old home Glens Fork Why not some old friend write from that placeI in the heart of the North commonlyIare worrying about such heavy rains whch have thus far prevented the planting of crops to agreat extent Wheat is poor but some corn looks fair ly well Of course I am like all othersthink this the only money making State and would be glad to see my old friends come here and farm on a greater scale The gathersifrom 15 to 50 bales of cotton 200 to 1500 bushels corn and wheat and oats in proportion Land is now selling from 1250 to 7500 per acre according to location and improvement So my advice to all old friends is that It is nice to be born in old

victory of modern ves sels of class over vessels of inferiority cannot fail to convey its impression of horror and gloom to the serious reader of the hours news the story of perforated and shattered hulks carrying down to death thousands of hu man beings of men as we are husbands fathers brothers It is the human tragedy which bears in upon us past all other impressions A fight at sea with its burning and sinking of ves sels presents the most terrible of all war tragedies to the imagination The killing of a like number of men in a land engagement would not so affect usWe cannot but confess to our selves however that a reversal of the story would have been a sadder version for this country Had the disaster deaths and de feat been Togos and Japans America would almost have had the blues so generally do our sympathies lie that way Sorry for the loser though we may be the world loves a victor as it does a lover and a Japanese victor at present a little better than it would love a Russian Russia as now constituted does not appeal- as one day it may to the worlds sympathies and Russias posi tion in the war that of an ag gressor inspired by motives not much better than sheer greed of expansion or euphemistically j t e rri to rial aggrandizement has not been the popular one Japans valiant defense Japans littleness against Russias big ness have moved the cheers One of the vast reportorial and literary activity which the big naval engagement has inspired has come among others a splen did phrase descriptive of the event the hornets attacking the leviathans of the deep It must have been a hornet fight against a sluggish foe seeing that Togos fleet came off almost unscratched It recalls the Chir naJap engagements the modern naval warfare and the American victories over the Span ish Admirals In point of tonnage involved and probably asS to the volume and weight of projectiles thrown it is the greatest sea fight in history and of vast interest tov naval experts Consideration of the decisive and sweeping victory leads inev itably to the query Will it endd the war Japan appears left without opposition on water On land she has the enemy on the defensive Japans control 4 f both situations would appear to be nearly perfect and nothing Russia can do inside of many months could disturb it Japan lias fairlv earned peace at the terms she has contended for As for Russia what can she do but I yield It remains to be seen what effect the disaster has on the feelings of the discouraged Russian people Internal Russia may and probably will be a fac tor pressing compellingly for peace Russia is out of Business as to this war and itsf credit is bad Its people are not likely to furnish the soldiers of the nations to with the money to prolong the stuggle Even

With a foe TV Sketch of His Career i Admiral Togo occupies the cen ter of the stage today He is the man of the hour Since Feb ruary 8 1904 he has commanded the Japanese fleets which have effected the greatest things ever done by any modern squadrons of war He has wiped the great Russian navy off the face of the severn seas He has reduced the Czars warships from a proud navy of modern maritime marvels controlling the prize seas and harbors of the Baltic and the far East to two miserable clumps of fourthrate war craft Togo the Silent they call himTogo the Silent but act iveHis manner of beginning the last and greatest international war of modern times showed that conclusively His methods on all the many succeeding occasions when he saw a chance of dealing a body blow to Japans enemy show it I am not a great reader Ad miral Togo recently said but I have become acquainted with the writings of Yomei a celebrat ed Chinese philosopher He en presentbage quick and simple action is the only way to succeed either in military or civil liferWhen Togo was told t hat he was to command the navy in the war with Russia he said simply Yes sir He is one of the hardest work ers Japan has ever produced and has been equaled by only one other naval commanderin histo ry John Paul Jones the head of the American navyHe drives himself to the limit and expects every other man under him to do the same Most interesting of all things related of Togo in con nection with the present war is that he himself helped to build every one of the fine war vessels under his command He knew what each could do and saw that it did it- Admiral Togo is 48 years old and from his youth was attached to the sea He entered the ser vice of the navy and received the greater part of his education at the English naval college at Greenwich where he had been sent by his government to learn all he could He vas a captain in 1894 in command of the secondclass cruiser Naniwa which was noth ing more than a converted mer chantman He was with the first flying squadron sent to China in that war He fell in with a transport w i t h a British Cap tain and crew and captured her The Chinese officers aboard at tempted to escape and afterwaiting 20 minutes in which to give the Americans and English an opportunity to leave the ship Togo raised the red flag a signal that he intended firing Then he torpedoed the vessel It was the first fight of the war Togo distinguished himself at the battle of the Yulaand was promoted to be a Rear Admiral and given the third command in he navy Togolookstain He is about the medium in height has a short grisly greybeard and like most Japanese officers does not know h x w to wear a uniform It invariably wrinkles where it should fit snugly He is married and has three daughters and a

counties Entered at the Columbia Postoffice as second lass mail matter WED JUNE 7 1905 It is not surprising how much interest has been manifested by some of Columbia citizens within the last few days concerning the proposed railroad now nearing its k beginning of construction or its verging on the threshhold of its i graveNeither is it surprising how indifferent many of our citi zens have been toward securing this great enterprise On the one hand the proposition is con sidered reasonable and within the limits of a reasonable and united effort of our people while on the other it is viewed as rain bow chasing and far beyond the limits of expectation The for mer havestudied its bearings and possibilities while the latter have pursued the even tenor of their own businessstrangers to a proposition if carried out that will transform the business in terests of this entire section and modernize its transportation fa cilities The one sees a happy hunting ground the other grappling with the inconveniences of present environments one is willing to risk a few dollars to better conditions while the other holds his sheckles to prevent a reduction of his assets one sees a bright prosperous future for our common interests the other takes the Daniel Boone route fight your own battles and hold the fort regardless of surroundings or outlets All are willing to have a raiload and allsay it would make the country bloom- S a rosegive values a great impetus and open up opportunities to the rising generations as trnly as enjoyments and profits to the present but some too many are not willing toIour country has grown since Dan iel and Davy blazed the way tnotopment that comes to a progress ive section Times have chang ed narrow views of life have passed a broad understanding of the blessings of civilization prevails and the simple notions of a bygone age must disappear before the onward move of the present in every department of life The length and breadth of this territory rich in agricultur al forests and mineral resourscs and favored with a climate invit ing in every particular should arouse such efforts of our people as to do that which is necessary to secure the building of a rail road Outsiders have been at tracted to the opportunity of developing this country and their demands are not burdensome if all would unite in giving aid They ask the right of way free and unincumbered together with a correct survey of the entire line and if these are given and come within the limit of the ap proximate cost of construction off their expert who recently reported on the resources to feed such an enterprise they say it will prove an attractive investment and within their ability to finance fit What more could be expect ed from outsiders l While we need the road and a general shaking up of opr energies we can not expect pitaliststo take kIThey have fully mvestigatecltlie resources of this section and say t j2 i f give us the survey and we will determine whether we can han dle it This enterprise has its origin here Not an outsider has an interest as yet and when the right of way has been secured and the survey made we can truly hope and expect to interest sufficient outside capital to carry it to completion The opportun ity will not last long Do your part and make it go The Elizabethtown News of re cent date contained quite an in teresting editorial which was re produced in our paper touching both sides of voting the secret ballot and the viva voce way This proposition will be submitted to the voters of Kentucky next November and it is one in which the people are fairly well ac quainted Under the old system there were buyers and sellers and under the secret ballot this same unrighteous practice of cor ruption has flourished The peo ple know what the old way was they know what the presentone is They met the floater in poli morejstill plies his nefarious work though the voter is behind the screen It took money to elect a man under the viva voce system but it takes more now The ballots may be changed mutilated or destroyed and a fraudulent re port made but the old way honi est and open knocks such methods out There are objections and justly so to some parts of both systems but the people are fairlyr e acquainted with the merits and demerits of both and an intelligent expression will be given We have never been an admirer of the viva voce system and have had less admira tion for the present foreign im portation of using the curtain The truth is we believe in the ballot system that prevailed long ago in the Old Dominion giving the voter the high prerogative to vote as he pleasedsecretly or openly but this is not to be sub mittecl It is for a return to the viva voce system or retain the present and while we are not in love with either yet it seems to us that this Australian systems has fathered and fostered too many frauds to entitle it to a se rious consideration when pitted against the old open plain hon est way The floater under the old way was openly known be cause he could not hide his acts Under the curtain he now sells and flaunts respectability in the open His number has increased so rapidly as to be alarming and all because there is a screen he hind which he Underathe old way fraudulent returns contests and modern troubles were not experienced Choosing between the two as surely we must do next November wetrust that the old way will be sustain ed and we believe it will The great naval defeat Russia received a few days ago is likely to be the last slaughter between those two powers Every engagement on land and sea has demonstrated the uselessness of Russias contentions and her ina bility to successfully cope with Japan It has been a bloody siege and the entire world wants peace

issued by the De par ment of Agriculture on marketin wine and about 85 per cent of these are produced in the Mississippi Valley hence this section of the country has de veloped the fat or lard hog and iaa set the standard for hogs in other parts of the United States The fat or lard hog is such because corn has been his principal feed and because there has been a demand for pork from such a hog and he will conform to the present prevailing type just as long as corn remains his princi pal feed Butcher hogs are the best hogs fro the fat or lard hog standpoint that come to market and should be used as- a standard for comparison From the bacon market standpoint the English bacon hog is the ideal toward which hogs are being developed To the close observer it is apparent conditionss brought about by the development of the United States and the increase in the price ofhorn resulting from its va ried commercial uses cause the hog to be fed a more mixed and usually a more nitrogenous ration This will in TVtheof the United States so that it wil- more nearly approach that of the Eng lish bacon hog Marry Men Who Smoke We never heard of the smokers get ting a compliment so we feel that they are entitled to this one but boys you neednt smoke yourselves to death on account of this ladys advice At a womans club the other day an elderly matron said to some young girls Never on any account marry a man who doesnt smoke I have had a goo havpe nonsm are peevish querulous full of a nervous illJ humorEspecially in the evening after dinner when he should be at his best the nonsmoker i is hard to put up with The smoker after dinner lights a cigar an at once falls into a placid mood a happy contented angelic mood But th nonsmoker paces the floor restlessly finds fault with this or that and every thing and at a word flies into a nervous and hysterical rage I am convinced that Providence in tended men to smoke and for that reason placed tobacco on the earth With a man who doesnt avail himself of this kindly gift of Providence there is something wrong and if you want to marry happy reject every nonsmoker who proposes to you f The Pacific Coast Do you want to live where the climate

the Beef T Hundreds of shippers and farmers are ruined every year by the constant jug gling of the market by the Trust When the price of cattle or hogs high any day at the stock markets the shipments are always few and when the shipments are large the price is ways low Why Because the peo pIe of the Beef Trust know when every car of cattle starts for its destination n and make their prices accordingly The only reason the price is ever high is to deceive the shippers into thinking that there is really more than one market There is but one market and the shipper may take Sstock and he may be surprised to find that the price is the same He can sell at the price offered or he can ship his st home at a great loss onIytofi th the market shows no upward tenancy t r t i j 11iu1l 1 I JJ i The price would remain the same everyday of the year only the trust must be careful that it does not altogether discourage the stock raisers and force them out of the business May be af begungland

expected but the utter annihilation of the fleet which is announced from Tokio was hardly anticipated The completeness of the disaster on the sea following a series of reverses on land will doubtless convince the St Peters nem gotiate for peace The sympathies of the world are largely with the Japaneseor rather the feeling is against the Russians and sympathy is enlisted in behalf of any nation

hand The first was just beginning to peep above the ground the second had rooted itself pretty well into the earth the third was a small shrub while the fourth and last was a fullsized tree The tutor said to his small companion Pull up the first The boy easily pulled it up with his fingers Now pull up the second The youth obeyed but not so easilyAnd now the third The boy had to put forth all strengthand use both arms be fore he succeeded And now said the master try your hand upon the fourth But lo I the trunk of the tall tree grasped in the boys arms hardly shook its leaves This my son is just what happens with our bad habits and passions When they are young we can cast them out readily but only Divine power can uproot them when they are old Profanitg Allowed for If there was any thing
