Citizens Passes Awav in the Night MORNINGand Last Wednesday night Mr J D Murrell one of the oldest citizens of Columbia passed over the silent river of death For several months Mr Murrell had been in declining health but immediately prior to his demise was able to stir around and his sudden taking was not expected by anyone but death often comes when least ex pectedOn that evening he fell and his son toand a black man assisted him to the bed and apparently he was not seriously hurt When the hour for retirement came he stated that ne did not want his clothes removed as he felt easy and did not care to be disturbed Soon he fell to sleep and his son Mr W C Mur rell retired and he too was soon in slumbers Awaking at 3 oclock in the morning and not hearing his father- n breathing he arsoe but found him dead Just at what hour his life ebbed away could not be determined but it is sup posed that he had breathed his last just- r before the discovery of death by his sonIt is believed that death was instan taneous scarcely suffering for a minute Had he lived until the 22d this month- r he would have been 77 years old Mr Murrell was not a member of any church t ut a gentleman uprignt in con duct honest with his fellow man He was a man of deep convictions and never played into the favor of any one 39by subordinating honest convictions a trait admirable in any person By oc cupation and training he was one of the best carpenters in this part of tne country and gave full value in an hon Lrest discharge of his duties Three sisters Mrs Jennie McLean of Columbia Mrs Gilmer and Mrs Mrs

from gout to indiges tion apple tea is quite the latest thing in beverages and has only just been introduced into England- It is a substitute for tea coffee anI cocoa and is the dscovery of Prof Ebbanl an eminent German doctor Apple tea is made in Germany from a particular sort of apple which will grow only in certain soil The peel which possesses suck nourishing quali ties with about half an inch of pulp attached is used The pips are also used and are slowly dried according to a certain process which effectually pre vents mildew or rot and when finished appear like bits of cork Apple tea is made in the same way as ordinary tea and in flavor and color very much resembles good Chi nese hyson tea 250000 FOR WEDDING GIFT Detail of Marriage of Son of Rock Island Magnate Disclosed by a

roveriinient Developing Strains on Sclentlie Principles Plan Large Yield IWashingtonBelieving that com beet sugar upon the character of seed furnished the grower the United States department of agriculture is making every effort to produce a strain of pedigree seed that will enable Amoricanfarmers to produce a large yield to the acre of beets containing a larger percentage of sugar and a lower percentage of undesirable constituents The work was begun by securing the best strains of European seeds and all known strains of Americangrown seeds and growing them for compari son Of these the best four strains were selected as foundation stocks and all beets of exceptional quality were saved and planted the following year as mother beets for seed production In the succeeding year onehalf of the seeds secured from these individual plants were soft and the best spei mens of beets preserved as specimens for the production of the first crop oi elite seeds The other half of the seed was planted this year and the beets secured will furnish next years SUppiy of seed for the new strain Along this same line of improvement a private grower at Fairfield Wash has produced a lot of some 300 roots testing from 20 to z4 per cent sugar a most extraordinary achievement in view of the fact that the usual beet seeds available do not contain over 15 per cent sugar- COLLEGE IS IN WILDERNESS Institution Dedicated in Kentucky Region Where Education Is Sadly Needed Bloomington IllTn the fastnesses of the Kentucky mountains in the heart of Morgan county there has just been erected a college in memo y of Matthew T Scott of Blooming ton The project was suggested by Mrs Scot and met with favor by the Presbyterian synod of Kentucky She was advised to select Morgan county which is without any other educational enterprise of consequence The site is near West Liberty and is 15 miles from the nearest railroad and can only be reached by a stage coach and the route is very rough and circuitous Mrs Scott is widely known through out the United States by reason of her prominence in the Daughters of Amer ican Revolution having served as vice president general and in other positions in that society The college was dedicated by Mrs Scotts brotherinlaw Adlai E Stevenson former vice president of the United States The enrollment upon the opening date was 115 students Prof J W Thurman an educator well known is the first president and he had for assistants five teachers of ability The board of trustees comprises Bennett H Young of Louisville and Rev L H Blanton and Rev J E Guerrant

Use Of Omal1aA glass town may be Ne braskas portion In northern Ne braska is a city of a population of 1200 It is located on one of the great rivers of the state which affords most desirable water power of about 4000 horse power capacity If the deposits of glass sand nearby which show 98 per cent of silica could be used for manufacture of glass products by an electrical process whose current would be generated by the water power the little city might evolve into one of the leading glass producers of the country The manufacture of glass by the electric arc as shown by the Ger man process js possible with less cap ital for the erection of a plant giving simpler cleaner and quicker processes than the ordinary method and af fords a saving of heat and energy In Belgium they are making window glass by machinery One machine turns out continuously sheets of glass 6z inches wide and of any desired length and of a uniform thickness varying from onefifteenth to fivesix tiEnths of an inch This can be ob rained as rough glass for making ex tra thin glass as horticultural glass and as window glass It possesses un enualed brilliancy on both sides The machine is recommended for its sim

defying feats of the hero of Greek an tiquity Prof Elihu Thomson of Lynn permitted more than half a million volts of electricity to pass through his body recently and laughs about it In the electrocution of crim mats only 2000 volts is used Prof Thomson showed how safe it is to handle bottled lightning when a person possesses a thorough know 1l1Iclub of Boston the members of were his

demonstration he explained why enough electricity to kill 250 criminals can enter and leave the human body without the least dan ger provided it is controlled properly The explanation put in simple

emocratc newspaper devoted to the interests of the city of Columbia and the people of Adai and adjacent counttesi Entered at the Columbia Postoffice as second class mail matter WED DEC 27 1905 In this the last issue for 1905 we feel that a little reminder of the changes in Columbia and throughout the county will not be out of place and in fact stim ulate greater undertakings for the incoming year and result in thoodcommunity In all the past the year 1905 has been more fruitful in material developments both n town and county than any one that preceded it As evidene of this the transfers in real estate and the amount of money in volved in these changes of own ership are ample to satisfy the most skeptical The many sales and the rapid advance in values have gone beyond the expecta tion of the firmest believers in the value of property in this part of the country Within the present year more substantial residences have been built inside the corporate limits of Columbia than any other like period of time unless it be the one that just preceded it The town is now lighted by electricity while one year ago it was in the dark today we have a good laundry when only a few months ago the linen were sent out of this sec tion to be cleansed andstarched The third planing mill is now in operation and a new black smith and woodworking estab lishment have been added A t few months ago and the brass horns were covered in dust the mouth pieces gone and the big drum dead today we have a i Band full of music and game in T the move attracting people ast well as entertaining It is all right and getting better All the older industries have prospered and are stronger in equip ments today than like institutions l in larger towns The buy Iing and selling of live stock hasi developed Columbia as a trading center and made it the most im portant live stock market in Southern Kentucky especially in horses and mules The mer rchants and professional men have all shared in an increased bus iness and public confidence in the wellfare of our thrifty little city and prosperous county has taken deep root and will carryout greater undertakings and share in greater rewards in the future than in all the past This spirit is not confined to the narrow corporate limits ol Columbia but pervades the entire county Likewise the farmers have enjoyed the good advance in realestate and been touched and stirred by the spirit of enterprise to a remark able degree Every part of this county has felt the upward ten dency in prices and are awaking from the slumbers of indifference and marching to the tune of substantial improvements and modern methods We would not overstate the true conditions of Southern Kentucky purposely neither paint them too brightly nor color them too darkly but we sum it up in this language Rocked in the cradle of slauthful ness trained in the school of slow going a century has commercial interests dwarfed but our people are surely and A steadily awakening from the t stupendous indifference to mat iJ t ters of public interest Outsiders are looking on and coming to join in the move A country is what man makes it and its prosperity is commensurate with intelligent industry as sure and certain as its decay is wrapped up in indifference and slothful ness If you are not pleased anrd cheered with the outlook for 1906 then we bid you adiew- A A Little Lecture on Christmas The streets and stores are crowded with eager purchasers bent on the courtesies amenities and good intensions gererally of the welcome Christmas season The enterprising merchants have laid in stocks of everything that could appeal to utility and please the fancy It is a spectacle that every progressive citizen should take delight in It makes busi ness and business makes the city and it is an unfortunate person indeed who is not enjoy ing some measure of content ment The cranks and curmud geons are left out of the calcula tion They do not deserve to beI consideredand those who are enthusiastic in their holiday joy should not be required to enter into particulars as to why they are so It is a time when the generous spirit prevails and there should be no restraint There are still a few Scrooges but the Marleys are growing in numbers and goodheartedness The wonder of the homely phil osopher always is what a slump there must be in shopping after the festive season is over So many buying things and have suchendless variety from which to select and quantities that tempt them to the last cent of their ready money that superfi cially the whole population would seem to be stocked up for months to come They will not be though The wants of human kind are unremitting A good Christmas dinner lasts only a day andon the morning afterward the stom ach is yearning for a wholesome breakfast On New Years day a great many of the stores close as a holiday recognition and in every household there is a disap pointment in not being able to immediately get something that is needed and that was notI thought of in the shopping There must be meat and bread and clothes and all that enters into the composition of society Much that is spent in the holiday season is for embellishment and frivolity and mere sentiment that however is all right It is a part of the general scheme of getting on in the world A few dollars saved up for extras on Christmas is not thrown away it is a relief from the humdrum and skimming of the rest of the year for a great many men women and children Alas for those who are too poor for even a little bit of joy ful extravagance on the natal day The lecture on generosity and charity is as old as the hills but it is good The appeal to those who have to yieldsome thing to those who have not in the universal observance of Christmas in this and kindred countries is standard andalways inOrderLet not go unheeded at the closing of this bounteous year 1905 Cincinnati Enquirer This is a prosaic age Busi ness activity and great under takings measure the accomplish ments of men toa remarkable degree It is rapid going dan gerous sports and reckless living Sentiment and reflection beauties of nature and the songs of bards are crowded out by the onward move of commercialism The greatest need to develop any country or enterprise is doers V lj d iji i A little pamphlet entitled Short Talks on Convict Labor is on our desk and after close ly scaning it we can see that the main purpose is to oppose the present system in this State an to offer as little opposition to free labor as possible In this we believe but just how it is to be accomplished remains to b worked out by some one who will thoroughly study this impo- tant proposition We have never believed in opposing free labor with prison labor and so long as the state hires out its convicts to manufacturers at reduced pri ces so long will free labor its effects If some system could be instituted by which the labor of convicts could be used on our public roads it would clear th situation and bring to the PeoP- 1direct benefit It is true tha life prisoners and the unruly or vicious class could not well b worked outside of the walls bu with the large jail buildings throughout the state hundreds of them could be safely kept at night and securely guarded by day while building substantial roads This proposition would probably meet the objections of those who believe that the main mission of prison life is to re form but it is not our opinion that the chief endof a prison sentence is to bring reformation except through the ordeals o punishment at any rate reformation is desired and we canno- see why it could not be as suc cessfully broughtbout by work ing them on the road as in th heated rooms of factories whei nothing is inviting Bring them out to the country and build roads that will last a century and it will be better for the state better for the wage earner and better for the unfortunate ones who must pay the penalty for crime Nature with its charms will do more for the prisoner than the lash of a boss in a sweat shop Land Stock and Crops 000 Bennett Hudson sold Allen Walker a horse mule 15 hands high for 100 000 Mr C R Royse bought from P

published two days in advance and should bear the date of Dec 23rd The happenings therefore of Christmas cannot be cor rectly anticipated and do not appear in this issue The incoming town council will prob ably take up the proposition to buy a rock crusher for the purpose of making streets and sidewalks It is the opin ion of many that this step should betaken and that it will prove to be a correct

accounted for in any other way than the way Mr Paul disposes of it The dam never was defeated for a blue tie and the sire never let one pass him Both have taken every blue tie they ever went after so the calf could not be expected to be otherwise marked The calf is a male a fine one and is for sale though it wears the blue H SURVEY IN PROGRESS Project for Railway Prom Stanford to Seottsville is

from the News columns of the Louisville Heraldof Tuesday the 19th We do not know whether it is a joke or a reality but we do know that this country needs a road and that it would be a profitable investr ment Connection between the two places above mentioned would not only open up a fine section of country but would prove important in supplying the missing link between two important a parts of our country We can see why it should be built but we cannot see that it will be done Again we can see how our people in this county could be switched off from the proposition to build from Cumberland River to Dan ville or Harrodsburg by the introduc sion of the above mentioned undertak We shall keep close trace on the movements and report the same to the readers of the News At present we are standing by the proposition to reachIDanville and believe that this tion is stronger now than at any time in the past The report of the engineers who had charge of the work is awaited with much interest and if that is as good as we hope for and have every reason to expect it will be invitingItenough to be a go It is not for our people to swing in line every wind that has railroad whisperings but let us all stick to the original and we will get a railroad DohoneyMock- Last Sunday the 24th at 2 p m at the home of the brides parents near Exie Mr Robert G Dohoney and Miss Octavia Mock were

CourierJournal Iio- ii The entertainment at the Lindsay Wilson last Thursday evening was all that could be expected in every particular The attendance was sufficient to give encouragement to those engaged and ample to meet all the expenses necessary in the preparation for such an entertainment The programme under the caption Secratary Pro Tern was faultlessly rendered in three acts and clearly demonstrated thorough training and adaptability of the participants in every part of the play The truth is that all are complimented while two or three seemto have captivated the entire audience in perfection of their acts It took two hours for the play and all the while the audience with expectancy was eagerly watching developments that kept the mind picturing the future The LindsayWilson

in charge of it was intently looking be fore him and save that he was smoking a pipe seemed to have been lost in a reverie The motorman vigor ously asserted his right of way The obstruction swerved not and appeared- to have slackened rather than in creased its speed Nearer and louder than before the ringing again resound ed Then a vociferous shout was heard but not by the driver Were he stone deaf he could not look more unconcerned as his wagon jogged along Gong gong and another ebul lition but of no avail Some of the passengers who were attracted by the repeated ringing and the furore in front were considerably amused Others being in more hurry sympathized with the motorman Was the drivers destination the Battery It was suggested that a missile of some kind be obtained to rouse him from his slumbers The motorman was in a quandary There was even a look of despair in his eyes as he turned round to gaze on the impatient passengers The obstruction continued- to block his way for half a mile or more Just as the motorman was waving hiss hand in the direction of a policeman all other vocal and mechanical resources failing him the wagon suddenly swung to the left The driver as he

of Bothersome Flies Is to Carry Sugar Mr Gillicuddy Migglebury writes us as follows says the Cleveland Leader It is not generally known that it is a simple matter fora bald man to relieve himself of the one great worry of the summer months i e flies getting on his bald head It is a wellknown fact that flies have a marked predilection for su gar and will eat it in preference to almost anything else If you are bald and you feel that a fly has alighted upon your head which is easily ascertained as the feet of the fly will create a slight ticklingII sensation as the fly walks around looking for trouble if a fly has alighted on your head then take out a lump of sugar which you may carry in your pocket for just such an emergency Place the sugar on a shelf at the same altitude as the top of your head and the fly will nine times out of ten leave your cranium for the sugar lump By watching the sugar you can see when it has as many flies as it can hold then take another lump from your pock et and place it beside the first one An ordinary lump of sugar will accommo date from 15 to 16 flies One hundred lumps of sugar should be a sufficient quantity to carry in the pocket for ordi nary emergencies Woman LL D Among those who received the honorary degree of LL D at Trinity col lege Dublin recently was Mrs Mar garet Byers the head of Victoria col lege Belfast who recently celebrated

Efforts are being made in Porto Rico to develop a new vegetable of economic and commercial importance It is called the yautia and is near iy related to the taro the plant that furnishes so valuable a food to the na tives of Polynesia and which under the name of elephant ear is familiarly known as an ornament in our own gardens Yautia was well known to the na tives of the West Indies long before the lauding of Columbus and was cul tivated by the Caribs when the Span lard i first arrived Its starchy tuberous root which is the part that is good to eat looks somewhat like a sweet potato and is six or eight inches long with a diameter of a couple of indies When cut into pieces and boiled it re sembles a boiled white potato in ap pearance The people of Porto Rico use the root as a substitute for the potato usually boiled though there are sev eral other ways of preparing it for the table It costs one and a half to two cents a poundtwice the price of taro root which itself is used as a food

In How to Save Niagara Falls in the Technical World Magazine Alton torIthe river For this great addition to the available power of Niagara river writes Mr Aams sufficient perhaps to meet all demands during at least another century it would not be neces1 sary to divert one drop from the volume or detract one inch from height of the great cataract theI would the existing power plants nor those under construction suffer injury by back water from the dam at Lewis- ton for it is not proposed to raise the water level in that part of the gorge which is now just below the fallsIn the lower gorge between the whirlpool and Lewiston the rapids would no doubt be reduced to smooth water by a dam that raised the river level 100 feet at the latter point As the estimated depth of the whirlpool is now 400 feet the approximate 50 feet of rise in the water level there would be caused by such a dam would probably change its appearance but little In the rapids above the whirlpool where the estimated depth is now only 40 feet there might still be some rough water after the lam was erected but their grandeur would certainly be buried Having in view the determined efforts that are bemg made to divert more and more water from the upper river it is perhaps not too much to say that a surrender of the rapids for industrial purposes is the price that must be paid in order to save the falls With the g cat power development suggested at Lew- iston there could be offered no fur ther diversion of water above the fallsWANTED MONEYS WORTH When He Went Into a Deal There Ead to Be Something in It for Rim While most of the money lost in Wall street is contributed by the Uncle Reu bens said a drummer from the metrop oils I occasionally run across a farmer who isnt looking for the 100 per cent profit I found such a man in a Penn sylvania village A canvasser for a magazine had hold of him and finding him suspicious procedeed to pile it onto see what the result would be After he had offered a dollar magazine for half price and agreed to throw in a 5 dic tionary free of cost he added Look here uncle Im bound to have your subscription as you are a prom innent man around here The subscrip

BASKET WOODS Enormous Quantities Used Make It Necessary to Find New Supplies The amount of wood annually cqn sumed in the United States for pack ing boxes and baskets cannot be given in exact figures but it is much greater than is generally realized The state of Michigan alone has 48 boxmaking establishments with an annual pro duct valued at 2272621 Other states have a yet larger output There Is hardly a business in the whole country which would not be unfavorably af fected by a serious shotage in packing box material- the growing scarcity and consequent high prices of most of the woods now used in this industry make necessary a search for other suitable woods and for means of regulating their supply in order that the future demand may be met and a reasonable profit be in sured to the manufacturer without overtaxing the consumer The study made by the forest serv ice will include the questions of sup ply and demand as regards woods now used the introduction of other woods
