Evening t The1 Rebels Are Displaying Foolhardy CourageThey Fully Realize That They Are Staking Every thing on the Issue London Dec 2GThe correspondent of the Daily Telegraph at St Pe tersburg in a dispatch dated at 645 p m December 25 says At an early hour this morning the casualties at Moscow were estimated at 5000 killed and 14000 wound ed with the fighting still pro ceeding The inhabitants of Moscow have been forbidden to leave their dwellings after 7 oclock in the even lag It is impossible to move about the city in consequence of thp fre quency of Stray bullets Many innocent persons have been accidentally lulled A scarcity of provisions is threatened The same correspondent telegraph ing at 103 pm says Your Mos cow correspondents telegrams have not been accepted because all private messages were refused this afternoon It is learned however that cannon firing is now proceeding in various- parts of the city Superhuman Hate The driving force behind both the troops and the rebels is no longer that lof enthusiasm or of any human impulse It is the force of superhuman hate and hen e the deeds reported are not the acts of patriots soldiers or otherwise but the enormities of madmen IIt is impossible to understand how any emotion even of the extremes of despair or hate can impart such fool hardy courage as some of the rebels display IFor every barricade destroyed Sunday two or three appeared jn other paces Orders were given by the revolutionists to shoot only when there was good hope of bringing a man down but otherwise to tire out the troops until they lost patience- In the meantime in their houses the bulk of the population cowers in the inmost recesses of kitchens and cellars stricken with fear and trembling at every boom of the cannon or the explosion of a bomb The most surprising thing of all is the loyalty of the troops which no body here anticipated IEverything at Stake Talking with an intelligent group of St Petersburg revolutionists I was informed that while they believed the strike would be victorious they fully realized that they were staking every thing upon the issue and that failure t would set back their cause for several years They said they were devoting their efforts to shaking the foundations of Russian finance in full confidence that once the existing regime was overthrown they could as quickly build another and that foreign nations would be as ready to advance money to a democratic republic as to the autocracy They emphatically denied that they were inpiting the peasantry to commit agrarian outrages declaring that these outrages were the work of socialists but they did not deny their advocacy of the distribution of the crown lands among thfe peasants In conclusion they declared that in event of the failure of their cause they would have recourse to terrorism choosing their victims from all classes ofsociety j JEWS ATTACKED THE SOLDIERS The Recent Bloodshed in Odessa Was Largely Due To Their Action

Gjeftjcgy Brings Wealth Hq luckY Girl with Val uable Idea 0St Paul 1IlnnKnOwledge of ge ology combined with pluck and ent ft pffs has brought wealth to a Untie sota schoolteacher Time out of mind up to two years ago there has lain next to the village of Mentonne in the central part of the state a marsh containing a square mile of land and so surrounded by elevated plains for several niiles that it would cost thousands of dollars tojdrain it It coincides almost exactly with the section lines of a section of land an lifor 30 years Or more belonged to state the heirs of which live inIMaine They did not value it enough to pay the taxes on it and as no one would buy it in for the delin quent taxes the title never from them except to the extent passedI states lien thereon hsSGWend Olin e Murphy a pretty schoolteacher who has made a special study of geology geography mining and allied sciences astonished her friendstwo years ago by using an inheritance of 1000 in the purchase of the square mile ofmarsh and in clear ing up all the taxes on it Then as soon as winter weather had frozen the marsh solid she began dig ging a well six feet in diameter a 107 feet deep through the strata ndI solid yellow clay and blue clay underlying the marsh to a stratum of sand and coarse gravel which her nature studies had led her to hope to find about that distance below the sur faceThe top of the well was then sur rounded by a porous wall that would permit the water from the marsh to flow through but would exclude mud and refuse When spring opened the entire marsh was drained dry the water that had flooded it and had been supplied by perennial springs on the edges be ing conducted through channels to the top of the well SUNSHINE A CANCER CURE Doctor Says Exposure to Old Sol 0Kills GermHow Remedy Came to LightIFrankfort KyDr Kirschberg whose cure of cancer by sunlight has attracted attention explains the cure as follows Last winter 1 discovered that I was r earIanding gather strength on a little vacati3n and went to Lake Geneva There I promenaded daily for a good many hours persistently turning my ear toward the southern sun After a week or so I noticed that the ous growth was cancerI crumbling off I ascribed this to the exposure to the sun and of course sought the ex posure more than ever After expos ing the afflicted ear to the strong sun- for a whole month the inflammation disappeared and the ear looked as nat ural as its mate doctor says the cancer cells ITIle destroyed by the rays of the sun advises that sufferers spend the winter in high altitudes ina mild llimat because the intensity of theI suns rays is greatest in high while the air is free from bacilli The floctor added that he cannot advise too Strongly sun baths in high altitudes He tells of a case in Alland where a young girl suffering from consump iionof the throat cured hersek by sun oaths ROAD ENGINE HAULS OATS Pressed Into Service to Pull Train of 4Wagons to Market at Boze man Mont

WEDIJAN 3 1906 Greeting Brushing aside every misfit and failure of the past passing all errors and mistakes of the year just closed this issue conies bidding farewell to 1905 and hail ing withdelight the good omens of 1906 We tip our hat to the 52 weeks of the New Year be lieving that within the same is inore good for Columbia Adair county and Southern Kentucky there has ever been pictured in the advent of a like period of time within the history of the past The pessimist may view with alarm the rise in values and the expansion of business and draw a gloomy picture but to ourmind these changes only point to a- more active future with ever in creasing strength of development The future for Southern Ken tucky is bright and cherry For many years time has rolled on with but few changes in the ma terial development of this sec tion but little to cheer the most progressive and nothing to in fcite activity from other quarters j move from such condi d gaining headway all the and the overthrow of cripplr d dwarfed opportunities is ntly near at hand This is a full of promise a clime id with sunshine and show opled by the most hospita lizens within the realm of rtedness and its real self tate only awaits the in cooperation of man and capre to bring out its beauty and Wprth The year just closed ought to give inspiration to the people of Columbia and strengthen their ambition for the conflicts of 1906 No like period of time ever measured more good for Co lumbia but the present foreshad ows more real substantial im provments It is not eneough to content yourself with the senti ment expressed in My Old Ken tucky Home and She was bred in Old Kentucky but the time has come when our commercial interests must be advanced the various resources of wealth ex panded and the prospects of a brighter future widened Every man wants Columbiato grow All are anxious for better conditions throughout this part of the State The whistle of locomotives com ing and going would be music to all The increase of opportunity lito profiably employ the brain and of our study young men 0charmingyoung ladies would meet a cordial welcome from every inteligent citizen but the great breech between desire and united action is the trouble We all want the good we all want advancement but we do not want to unite in effort and ex pense to bring results Coldwa tering honest efforts and crook ing fingers at progressive im provements have never aided in bettering public conditions The folly of such a course is appar entto allyetits the indulgencehas been too common not only in C lumbia but throughout

factory returns towns and coun ties without enterprise dwindle hope without effort is a delusion There are steps in the reach of Columbians that must be taken or the high water mark will be reached on a premature base and 3the turning point rounded It requires united action to keep a healthy growth Within our reach and essential to the ad vancement of the town are sev eral small enterprises that would tickle the public pulse when once secured and be substantial props under advanced values The town council should bring about more and better sidewalks Sev eral streets are in need of stone and the extention of street lights is too important to be delayed On the part of the most progres sive citizens waterworks could be secured and when done would almost make Columbia a new place A small ice plant could be sustained and made profitable and several other small industries could thrive under present conditions The outlook for a railroad was never brighter and the people to a man ought to give substantial aid Adair county needs better roads and we trust that the Fiscal court will not be backward in inventing a plan for the building of roads that will stand the winter as well as the summer A rock crusher is needed and we believe will be ser curedJThe News has never been in as good condition for service as at present and its motto is keep the ball rolling Heres hoping that the

November and he was duly headed and took the oath of office a few days prior to the first at which time he assumed the responsi bilities of that important position Mr GP Smythe is now our County Attorney and a young lawyer well equip ped to take care of the credit and stand Ing of the county Mr W B Patteson shoulders the task of keeping the peace and bringing in the violators of law His duties are many and varied for a Sheriff is usually a busy man Besides being a man well qualified to meet all the emergencies that may arrive he is doubly prepared in the way of efficient deputies Mr Ed Staples who has already proven himself a discreet and brave official and Mr T C Davidson whose adapta bility in every particular to this impor tant position is well known have taken the oath to perform their duties fearless ly under their Chief Mr Patteson and we hava no doubt as ta the result Mr T R Stults needs no introduc tion He is the County Court Clerk succeeding himself and the business of the office will doubtless continue in that satisfactory manner it has heretofore done It is just plain T R Stults County Court Clerk Mr JF Neat Circuit Court Clerk was not molested in the last election his term not expiring so no change will be made in that office Mr Tarter the new Jailer comes from a section of country known for its hospitality and if he fails to feed and treat alf prisoners in the right way he will fall far below the hopes of his many friends who elected him Mr Geo W Pike of Cane Valley ithe Assessor and we have no doubt asto his faithful performance of the duties of that office Mrs Georgia Shelton County School Superintendent takes charge of the ed iicational interest and she is eminently qualified to fill it to the intnrest of all She is the first lady to hold official po sition in Adair county and her administration of the duties of this office we expect to be as fair and correct as pos sible to be accomplished In justice to those whose terms of office have expired we desire to say that peace and good will go with you to the private walks of life since you have discharged your duties as you believe they should have been done To the new officials we merely wish to say that your way is probably beset with some difficulties but we believe that each and every one of you will measure up to a full fair and honest discharge of the same so
