NEWS COLUMBIA KY JUNE 14 1905 An Obj3ct Lesson While there are indications that the presidential backbone is al ready swagging from its announc ed determination of buying Pan ama canal supplies in the open markets of the world the object lesson taught has already indeli bly impressed the public mind If it is a good thing for the United States to go into the markets and buy things why isnt it a good thing for the private individual If the Government can save money by applying free tradeprinciples why could not theprivate individual do likewise If it is right for the Government to call in the free tr a d e countries for competitive biddings where is the justice and right of law that excludes these same countries from American home markets thereby forcing the in dividual to pay double price for the same goods that the Govern ment saves millions of dollars on by buying in the open markets if a high protective tariff has brought about these amazing and iniquitious conditionsconditions- now freely admitted by the Re publicans themselvesis high protection right But the most striking feature of this magnificent object lesson is the bill of particulars furnish ed by the protectionists them selves Tow ships needed in the con struction of the Panama canal will cost 1400000 if bought and built in high tariff America These same ships can be purchas ed for 750000 in free trade Eng land The

customers and the American government itself 13 a ton more than itscharges foreigners for the same goodsFollowing are a few articles needed in the construction of the Panama canal together with the American and foreign prices It should be bourne in in mind that American trusts and corporations manufacture these articles ship them abroad and sell the m at these prices compelling theirhome people under the protec tion given by the high tariff laws to pay the higher prices Axes can be bought abroad at r 220 a dozen they cost consum ers 325 Wire nails costs 135 per hundred pounds abroadThey

Herald has made a careful estimate of the wheat c o of 1905 which he thinks the largest since 1901 The winter wheat crop in fourteen States is estimated at 348 000000 bushels To Kansas is assigned 75000000 to Nebraska 9000000 and to Missouri 37000 000 bushels these three being the largest producers To Ken tucky is assigned 10000000 bush elseThe total winter crop in all the States is put at 411000000 bushelsThe wheat crop is invol ved in more uncertainty because harvest is further away but on the basis of the present condition it is figured at 259000000 bush elseAdding the two together we get a grand total of 670000 000 bushels This gives the largest crop since 1901 when the fig ures were 748460218 bushels The correspondent says thefarmers throughout the central part of Kentucky are well agreed that the State will have a better crop than it had last year the best yield per acre in a decade A Fayette county farmer is quot ed as saying that this will be Kentuckys banner year for wheatThe amount of a crop in the United States is never a subject upon which the makers of estimates can agree The Herald figures appearhowever to have been compiled with careCour ier Journal Rotation of Crops in the Garden- I aim to change the location ev ery year of most varieties except onions says a correspondent of Practical Farmer Those I have kept in one location year in and year out for a longtime and never fail having good crops One third of the patch is sown each year to clover or sojo beans and plowed under each spring to supply humus to the soil In conclusion I wish to say that thorough cultivation is absolutely essential to a successful garden By all means keep the weeds down Stii the ground often Dont let ground become encrusted And the editor adds this It is a commendable practice to give one part of the garden each year a thorough cleansing and renewal by growing a crop of clover cow- peas vetch soy beans or any thing that can be utilized for the purpose Cow peaseY soybeans or crimson clover come very handy for this purpose Even common mammoth red clover will do well It can be sown in the spring and will give a good coat to plow down the next spring If plowed late and well limed before plowing it will give a nice clean soil If my garden were large enough I would use only onehalf of it every year putting the other half in clover and changing regularly Mule Industry Many farmers are not aware that mules sell at an average of 10 or more than horses but such is the case in the great wholesale markets The popularity and price of mules have steadily improved for several years until there is greater profit in the mule than the h o rs e industry The predjudice against mules in many localities has preventedmarket the overstocking of and the prices have steadily advanced for the past decade says nth trovers Journal Mules have proved invaluable in war as their hardiness and adaption to all climates m ak e them desirable for transportation service England bought many thousands of mules during t h South African war aand the con7 r 1tributedteclyljto the subjuga tion of the Boers Nearly all armies are now equiped with mules in the transportation de r i ia r pariIIntandfor war purposes this hybrid is in great demand There were 2888710 mules re ported at the 1905 census Tex as leads wit h 391038 Missouri second with 243466 Mississippi third with 219902 and Georgia fourth with 201060 Texas and Missouri are the leading states the latter sowing the larger in crease in the last year Texas shows a decrease of 7980 and Missourian increase of 40178 head in the last twelve months which indicates the latter state is paying more attention to the mule industry than her southern rivalIThe predjudice in northern cit ies against mules is gradually disappearing and in Chicago and other northern municipalities many heavy mules can be seenr daily performing a part of the heavy transportation service Themuleisparticularlyadap ed for service in the southern states as it is not affected by the hot climate Nearly all the agricultural work and heavy trucking in the south is performed by mules It is expected that the Government will soon execute a large order for mules to work on the construction of the Panama canal as they will stand the clim ate of the torid zone better than horses Mules can be kept more economically live to a greater age and are heartier than horses Killing Squash Bugs This is one of the most trouble some insects with which the vine grower has to contend and is diffi cult to handle Some melon grow ers plant an occasional hill of squash with which to feed these bugs and thus attract them from the melon vines Here they are hand picked and the squash vines kept alive for a trap Placing a shingle or piece of board near the hills for a nigh shelter for the bugs enables one to gather then quickly is recommended Covering the vines with cotton or a box covered with muslin is a good remedy Powdered char coal or air slaked lime is used sprinkled on the leaves One successful grower relies on land- plaster or oyster shell lime which may be dusted upon the vines through a small fine sieve while they are wet with dew or rain to be applied as soon as the young plants are up Mr Gregory says the air slaked stove lime is apt to be too strong and would injure the plants Farmers Guide Hog Notes- No matter at what season the sows are due to farrow care should be taken to provide them with dry clean quarters to themselves As a rule after a sow farrows 1she should not be disturbed in anyway until she gets up of her own accord when she may be given a bucket of slop An abundance of milk fox the first eightor ten weeks of the young pigs existence is the best preparation they can have to fit them for profitable growth after wards r There is no better feed for young pigs after they have learn ed to eat than good oats If they can be ground and made into a slop with sweet skin milk all the better

many sections of the country since some what extensive trials made with it since its introduction by the Department of Agriculture have demonstrated not only heavy yields but exceptionally good returns under conditions of drouth Avery important feature of the work of the experiment stations throughout the country is the introduction of new crops and many valuable additions have thus been made to the list of plants which a country is capable of pro ducing The Kherson oats were 1896bThey have been pretty well tested by the Nebraska station as to their adaptability to the corn belt of the United States An ad vance proof of the experiment station work of the Department of Agriculture says of this prom ising forage crop The climatic conditions most favorable to the growth of oats do not usually obtain in the corn belt and it has been difficult to finda variety of oats well adapt ed to this region It is a curious factthat although the great corn producing States are likewise thej largest producers of oats they are not States in which the yield per acre is high The Kherson oat is a vigorous but not rank grower The straw is short but leaves are broad andI expose a large surface The ber ries are light yellow in color and have a very thin hull It usually weighs well per bushel and ma tures very early In the dry seaI remrokablec1routhreslstIngr The Kherson oat is stated to be a very heavy yielder and the in dications are that in introducing this oat a great service has been renderednot only to the middle west where the rainfall is scant but to other sections where drouth frequently cuts down the oat yield Saddle Horses Scarce L B Shropshire writing in the Kentucky Farmer and Breeder says Never in the history of our country has there been such a shortage of sadddle and carriage horses in the market as to this day In New York the past season it has been impossible to supply the demand The public sales have been attended by more buyers than ever before At these sales the bidding was usually strong and the demand for highclass horses was never so great In fact the condition has become so alarming that many city horsemen are already predict ing a famine of fancy and busi ness horses in the near future and there seems to be little likely hood of western shippers being able to cope with the demand Throughout the state of Kentucky dealers with perfect unanimity state that they have never known horses to be so scarce and what is still more deplorable they re port that the supply of young horses coming on is insufficient to meet the demands even in or dinary

and prevent l any knowledge from reachIing the outside world igerents try to do this but theInecessity of intrusting secrets a number of persons some of I whom are apt to be imprudent t renders it an extremely difficultI task The Japanese Ihavenever before attained by any such I nation in war It is stated that Togo lay for three months in the Tsushima Ihisout scouts but he never succeeded in ascertaining theposition of his enemy Neither did anyone else who betrayed the secret The diligent news gatherers pursuing their vocation under unwon ted difficulties and lending a villC ing ear to ever scrap that seemed like news placed him from time to time in various places but they never were able to penetrate the secret of Togos whereabouts- No hint of his plans was ever obtained and the Russians were completely in the dark with regard to them To this single cir cumstance much of the credit of his over whelming victory must be attributed To deceive the enemy is half of the success of war and to that end he must be kept in the dark as to the actual situation The means by which the Japanese have accomplished this are well worthy of the study of those who desire to earnl how a war

CHAR N HAKKIM CLUf r Democratic newspaper devoted to the interests f the city of Columbia and the people of Adair id adjacent counties Entered at the Columbia Postoffice as second Iaa mail matter WED JUNE 14 1905 The Louisville Commercial Club is making a good honest effort to arouse every section of Kentucky to importance of bettering exist ing conditions in business and business development No part of the State has reached a perfect model in the development of its resorces and the larger part pre sents fertility in crudeness Few if any of the States surpass Ken tucky in natural resourccs yet this proud old Commonwealth is trailing in the rear in the march of development Our young men find the door of opportunity clos ed at home in a large measure and many of those of an enterr i prising spirit without sufficient means for a promising start in business pack their grips and seeK a more inviting field where their energies and talents are us ed to build their fortunes and de velop other sections This drain a tremenderous one is one of the main causes that have checked the development not only in Ken tucky but in many of the old States yet the people seem indif ferent to this loss Such a theory may seem visionary to some and not well founded but if you will trace up the removals from this section to the land beyond the river covering a few years you will be surprised Scarcely a family in this part of the country but has a member in some of the Western States To our cer tain knowledge within the last six months from fifty to one hundred young nen have left this county fort the Noith and Wes seeking work yet no effort or but little on the part of our people to check this reducing process by opening up opportun ities at home What is true of this county fairly well applies to e v e r y county in the State This of itself would not inreali J ty be serious if a like number were coming in from other local ities but such jsnot the case We send out our young men to other commonwealths and receive nothing in return save the knowledge and pleasure of the prominent positions they fill No effort on the part of our pea j pIe to open mines build factories and better and broaden transpor tation facilities will keep us just r where we are and the next cen 1 fury will find Old Kentucky old in age decrepid in condition her youthful vigor gone and in the grasp of slothfulness and indif ference Just the opposite of ofxthe Louisville Commercial Club r That organization is making an effort to a r o use an interestf 1 throughout the State and public spirited

now closing and not until the many youngsters have returned to their homes will a due appreciation of this school be real ie4 by many of our people For the last ten months Columbia has presented an unusual lively appearance both in social and business circles the result of educational interests that center here This school with its corps of success ful instructors each and every one selected for known ability and high at tainments in their respective stations has done a great work tha meets the general approbation of its large patron age throughout Southern Kentucky This state of affairs is gratifying to its many friends both at home andabroad to the Educational Board and the entire faculty Under the wise discreet and persistent activity of its Business Man ager the enrollment exceeded three hundred and the average attendance was well up to this high mark until measles some six or eight weeks ago reduced that fine showing to consider able extent and which in the nature of events could not be overcome in the closing of the term The energy and ability displayed in the field gathered them in from nearly every neighborhood in a large section of this part of the State while the at tractive power within its halls from its able President down to the primary department were so thorough and satis factory as to hold all who entered It is not our business to give a detailed statement of the work and we could not if we were disposed to try neither is it par intention to pin boquets to the reputation otany certain one connected with its success Thejflain unvarnish ed truth is that this school has passed the experimental stage and has by its work convinced the people of Southern Kentucky that its great possibilities can not be determined that its power and bearing is awakening the old as well as the young throughout a vast territory heretofore inadequately serv ed Fromthe very hour its bell called the the first ingathering of students to its halls a steady and almost phenomenal growth both in students and interests have been experienced and just What itfuture will reveal can not be foretold + At any rate its future is so bright its fieftdof operations so broad ano its work so essential to aid in the great development of this country that beyond a doubt the Educational Board and the Louisville Confer ence can not fail to see the thing mdst needful for its full development and guided by the same spirit that established it provide the means to enlarge its buildings and increase its faculty Keeping up the same ratio of gain of its second year over its first

True education was his theme and it was ably handled On Monday the examination began and will continue until Thursday Monday eve ning a most delightful program was ren dered in the College Chapel one of the principal features being an oratorical contest by an advanced class of young men for a gold medal offered by DrU- G Foote of Lexington While only one can win yet all the honor does not follow

his first effort will be crowned with success As heretofore announced in the News work is progressing on the R R Conover farm about one mile from town on Petits Fork and at this writ ing the drill is doing its work more than five hundred feet below the surface and going down at a satisfactory rate Gas was struck last week before adepth of 200 feet had been reached and the flow continues strong and increasing- Mr Earls the driller in charge an experienced man from Massacheusetts is confident of reaching an oil sand from six to eight hundred feet and this belief is backed by the formation through which he has drilled when compared with the producers in other fields Dr Russell game and full of confidence does not entertain a doubt and he has closely observed every formation from the surface to the present depth Whether this effort proves a success or failure so far as quantity or quality it will not weaken the faith of Dr Rus sell He has operated in the famous Pennsylvania field and other places and after a careful study of the formation of this county he is thoroughly con vinced that this is a great field Dr Russell is here managing for the Adair Oil Company backed by New Yorkcapitalists and intends to thor oughly test this section if the people will only give reasonable evidence that they desire it Dr Russell is also President of the Mountain Oil Company Ire1 cently organized in this town and which will spend every cent it has in testing Adair county territory This company with DrJRussell in the lead onlj asks a reasonable and friendly cooperation on the part of the people who own land and whof iwoiild be the beneficiaries if a good strike should be made Already some interest is manifested on the part of the most enterprising citizens of Gradyville and also on Green river and itwouldnot be surprising to hear of active operations at an early date The organizers of the Mountain Oil Company- are believers in this territory as truly as those interested in the Adair Company and will put down three or four wells hit or miss but will operate where the best inducements appear People of the county awake aricLhelp testLyour holdings while others are wil lirigfnil anxious to engage There is oiLhere and the ones who find jt will wear diamonds so says Dr Russell andvs owe believe Look out for a report vof a gusher at an early day Move UP Columbia now has electric streetlights due to the progressive spirit of Mr W R Myers and the town coun cil There is not a doubt as to the general approval of this step ancEwhile only eight arc lights dispel the dark ness at present it is only a question of short time when more willl be swung The next step taken ought to be in the protection of property from fire and this can only be done by putting in wa ter works Lights are good and add to the comfort and protection of those who are out at night and are well worth the effort and cost it took to se cure them but the greatest boon within our reach is water works A good flow of water under strong pres Ute would save the people of Columbia several hundred dollars in insurance- rates every year besides having the satisfaction of living in a position to successfully fight fire which ayoc- cur at any hour The conveniences of a good supply of water would so soon recommend themselves as to induce every family in town to take water The importance of water works is fully realized by a large number of our citi zens but who are not agreed on any certain plan for the instalation of a plant Gentleman of the town it is time to press this question to deter mine to put in water to devise ways and means to accomplish it Whether it should be done by the town by issu ing bonds or by the citizens in organi zing a company could be determined in a meeting helcl for that purpose It could be accomplished either wy if the leading citizens of the town would determine to bring it about Several people have stated that they would take stock in a company but willingness and ability amount to nothing so long as they are dormant We suggest a meeting at an early day to discuss the advisability of such action and to fully investigate this question

engineer of the Osborne Engineering Company arrived Monday and has taken up the work and is pushing toward the river Those who have been fainthearted and oth ers whose faith has not been so large as a mustard seed and again others who are subject to hot and cold sensations that come and go with the opinions and sayings of others should cheer up and jom the crowd small though it be that keeps the faith unwavering and believes in the great resources ofI our country and its certain development The constant drop of water wears away the hardest stone so keeping everlastingly at it brings success It is no time now to waver or weaken but the supreme moment for united and unflinching action United we win divided we lose and the losing of this proposition only tends to weaken victorygivesa community as to an individual Nev er in the history of this country have the people been so near securing a railroad so near is it that unitedeffort on the part of our leading citizens will build it The right of way must be secured and the survey will soon deter mine whose lands are touched From one end of the line to the other every owner of land ought to be glad to aid this great undertaking by giving the right of way Should it fail to build propertybutpears before increased value of farms timber anti other resources and conveniences The man who will not aidsuch an undertaking is fighting

poultry in the Summer If the hens are in good condition for laying they will fare much better if com pelled to come off the roost in the morning and scratch for their breakfast than if they are permitted to walk up to a feed trough and fill their crops The morning feed of grain and seeds maybe scattered in the litter after they are on the roost at night so they can be gin as early in the morning as they de sire Before going to roost at night they may be given all they can eaV and will digest all the crop will hold before morning Pointers for Men Nothing pleases a girl so much as to have a young man tease her till she gets mad A girl always makes a face after kissing another girl just as if it didnt taste good There never was a man so wise that he did not enjoy being made a fool of by a pretty woman No man feels any need of heaven as long as he can sit beside a girl with starry eyes No man would ever write a love let ter if he thought it would ever be read in a courtroom in a breach of promise case Every girl thinks that a young man convicted of stealing kisses should be sentenced to solitary confinement with herself for company There are lots of girls that can skate along like birds when they are by them selves that are perfectly helpless on the ice when a man is around When a man had the legal right to whip his wife provided he used a stick no thicker than his thumb women were just as anxious to marry as they are now If you tell a woman her baby looks and acts just like her she is pleased but if you tell her she looks and acts just like her baby she doesnt like itI And So It Is Man is the only creature that knows he will die Yet he is the only creat ure that laughs He is the only creat ure that manifests joy in his existence It is hard to understand Every ra tional man knows that he has nomort gage on the tomorrow it is not his he may never see it he may die before dark Few let this unchangeable fact fall athwart their path They laugh and are gay even when their heads are grayed for the grave They hasten to the future of which the wisest have as shadowy knowledge as a fool The future is forever and is said to be influenced for eternity by our

at the White House But Would Not Discuss Their Visits Washington June 9The czar iias at last been heard from here and the result is not unfavorable to peace In his recent audience with Mr Meyer l the American ambassador the czar indicated a willingness to take under advisement the subject of peace and expressed a warm appreciation of the friendly words of Mr Meyer speaking as the personal envoy of the president The reception of Mr Meyer was char cordialityIcablegram to the president giving a general account of the audience is of a distinctly hopeful tone Mr Meyer did not bring to the St Petersburg government an offer of mediation but a friendly offer of good will as it whichIto record the character of the cablegram Mr Takahira the Japanese minister called by appointment at the white house and spent half an hour with the president He was still unable to give the president the slightest indication regarding Japans peace terms but it IIis believed he was acquainted in a gen way with the hopeful tone of Mr Meyers dispatch and with tnis as a lever the hope is expressed here that the mikado will meet the president haf way in the earnest efforts he is making to assist in bringing about an early peace No Request For Peace Terms Earlier in the afternoon Baron ko the Japanese financial adviserKaneI received by the president and ed the whole situation for some time Baron Kaneko said that Japan had not received directly or indirectly any request from Russia for a statement of peace terms It was intimated that Japan would be loathe to give any such statement until convinced that Russia was prepared to take up theI question of peace with intention of ending the war Later in the afternoon Sir Mortimer Durand the British ambassador saw the president and still later Baron Speck Von Sternberg the German am bassador was at the white house for nearly an hour None of the callers would discuss their visits and it can be stated that with the exception the call of Mr Takahira none of ofI visits was of great importance- It is not expected that the situation will change radically in the next day or two Until some indication comes from Japan of her attitude in the light of the spirit shown bjr the czar the negotiations can hardly be expected to progress Meantime powerful though friendly influence is being brought to bear on Japan to be mod erate in her demands Japan Should Be Reasonable It has been pointed out that Japan and Russia must always be close neighbors and that if Japan is unrea sonable now in her great triumph she might again be involved in war with Russia What effect these representa tives may have on the mikado is of course onlYconjectural- Strong hopes were entertained here in the highest circles that London could be relied on for active assistance in counselling moderation to Japan These hopes have not yetDeenreal ized although information has been received that Great Britain will welcome peace It is still hoped however that some assistance from that quarter maybe yet forthcoming Berlin and Paris are both giving loyal assistance to the eftorts initiated in Washington and the result of Berlins activity is al ready being felt Further instructions have been sent Ambassador Meyer at St Petersburg that the British char acter is not known Count Gassini the Russian ambassa dor called at the French embassy where he had a long

and will onlyjfgrow as it is forced to But in the surrounding country by advertising trade will come from an increased radius and the town will forge to the front It is the men living in the town and
