COUNTY NEWS COLUMBIA KY FEBRUARY 21 1906 IMPROVEMENTS WANTED Pointers That indicate the General Feeling of the People GOOD ROADS MORE BRIDGES Dr J N Page who is a close ob server and who takes a great interest in the prosperity of Adair county says Good roads are a matter of economy and every farmer in Adair should do every thing in his power to bringabout better conditions Rock crushers are what the county needs and the Fiscal Court should purchase them The ex tra tax would not be felt and it is the farming element who would receive the greatest benefit If we had good roads farmers in delivering anything that is grown upon their plantation could haul to market a wagon load in stead of a half load and besides the saving of the wear and tear of vehicles would more than pay the tax I hope the crushers will be purchased I am not opposed to bridges The ones we have put up are of great benefit Mr RF Paull saysUput me down as strictly in favor of public improve ments I think the Fiscal Court would do a wise act were it to purchase rock crushers to be used in benefiting the county roads The town of Columbia has bought one for use in the corporate limits and the county should follow suit I am also in favor of building bridges where they are actually needed In fact I am on the side of every proposition that has for its object the ad vancement of Adair county Mr J V White says that he is pub lie spirited and is in favor of the coun ty buying four rock crushers He thinks the quicker the work is done the better for all concerned Nothing ben efits a county like good roads and the people would not feel the tax levied to buy machinery to put them in good condition Good public highways would benefit every locality in the county and I do not care how soon the work begins I will favor more bridge work when we get better roads I hope the Fiscal Court at the April term will make a levy for crushers Mr Jas H Young who owns three or four farms in the county informs the News that he is strictly in favor of buying rock crushers for the improve ment of our county roads and is perfectly willing to be taxed for this pur pose He thinks the Fiscal Court would do the proper thing in making the levy and says at least two crushers should be purchased He further stat ed that a bridge was badly needed at Neatsville and perhaps at other points You can just state that I am in favor of any proposition that will benefit Adair county feb I Mr H B Garnett a representative farmer said The time has come when a better road system must be inaugu rated We are in the mud and it will take metal to put the highways in good condition I would be glad if the Fiscal Court buys a rock crusher or two I am more than willing to pay an additional tax for this purpose I uzi derstand that crushers are used very successfully in other counties making very smooth and lasting roads The same thing can be done in Adair and I want to see the work started Judge W W Jones who is a large taxpayer says I want the Fiscal Court to purchase rock crushers for the improvement of our county roads The gravel in many sections of the county has been exhasted and it is now necessary to crush rock I want the machines purchased and put to work at the very earliest opportunity Bridges should also be built when needed An business1aMr Allen Walker who does as much traveling over the county as any other man says There is not a doubt but that rock crushers are led Tlbe toads are badly cut in Places and in fwetweather traveling in vehicles I is Iirre tl rtt yr ftSrn very difficult Let the Fiscal Court buy crushers and the travling public and the farming element will be under lasting gratitude I am perfectly willing to have my taxes increased for bet ter roads I am not oppoed to bridges and would make no kick if one or two others were built where needed Mr John N Cononer gives this ex pression Whatever will be of servicej to this county I favor I Fiscal Court should purchase rock crushers and put the roads in good con dition I know of no other improvement that would be of greater benefit Good roads make business and business gives everybody who wants to work employ ment By all means let the crusher be purchased Mr J 0 Russell a prominent mer chant of this place says I am in favor of buying rock crshers to benefit the conditions of our public highways I do not think more bridges should be reachIthemup of Adair County than any thing else you could mention I live in town and my taxes are not light but I am will ing to have them increaed for the ben efit of the farming element The situ tion is just this In the Wintertime many of our public roads are almost impassable Give us rock crushers I M L Grissom a retired merchant of Bliss entered the office last Tuesday saying I want to pay my subscription to the News and I want you also to put me now for a rock crusher and bridges where they are needed I am strictly in favor of internal improvements and good roads and bridges would add more to the business inter ests of the county than anything else I am perfectly willing to pay my tax for rock crushers and bridges and I believe I voice the sentiment of tHe tax payers in my locality Mr Geo A Smith who is ah excel lent farmer and taxpayer says I fa vor any move that has for its object the upbuilding of Adair county I want good roads and in my judgment the on ly way to get them is for the Fiscal Court to purchase rock crurshers If the court would purchase two machines put them to work the talk of impassa ble roads would in a few months be a thing of the past I am perfectly will ing to be taxed for the purpose The bridges that have been built in the county are of lasting benefit and I am not opposed to the erection of others where needed Our county is increas ing in population hence I think every thing possible should be done to invite settlers GADBERw Jasper Gadberry sold to Tandy Son 5 hogs at 4J cents Born to the wife of Aquilar Darnell a son

former ones is rl that there is scarcely a member j who indulges in theuse of whisky I The fact is that we have an in j telligent business set of men t moral and upright who are mak jing our laws and remodeling 1some that should be readjusted f to our Legislature will l five you a better idea of Ken 1 tucky citizenship and cause you J feel that our State is not behind 1 in inteligigence gameness and i advancement Proud Old Ken J tucky your name in former f years was not behind the lead in the great family of States but j unfortunately the last few years 2 the decade just past left the im Y print of indiscretion on the i minds of the great public shame and misdeeds crowded on your brow your name tarnished and your honor and prestige weaken ed it is again reaserting the great makeup of a noble people and a progressive State The evidence of this is manifested at i Frankfort in the good will that pervades our Legislature in the intelligence that represents near ly every county and Senatorial c district and reflects creditI and honor on the people We are povingout of the old ruts the fire of partisan passion has been reduced toits minimum and the sober sense pf justice and fair play reigns supreme There is r not an intelligent Kentuckian who could visit the present Legislature and not feel inspired r feel that the rpugh and tumble i days of a few yeas ago have all t been

that anoth AdairIof the Third to throw off that big Republican vote of Butler county but up to this hour the Fourth district people have not agreed to take Butler A better solution of the whole difficulty is found in giving Muhlenburg coun ty to the Second Adair to the Fourth This would release the Third of about 500 republican votes and all the counties would be well placed geographically and politically We fully believe that Adair county will be placed in the Fourth A bill has been offered in the Legislature in session at Frank fort to take Adair county out of the Eleventh Congressional Dis trict and place it in the Fourth At first thought we looked upon the proposition with disfavor but after due consideration we fail to see where such a change could effect either district from a polit ical standpoint Adair now has less than 200 republican majority while it is wholly surrounded by republican influences then re move this and throw around those people the cloak of democracy and we confidently believe that same majory will be removed to the democratic column Hew ever under present conditicns 200 republican votes lr ore wouldnt effect the result of the Fourth nor would the loss of same make the Eleventh d mo cratic From a geographical so cial and business point of view Adair county belongs to us and through these relations the people of this end of our district have learned to love and respect her people because of their Stirl ing worth and business integrity The democracy of Adair is composed of that untarnished noble manhood of which Kentucky boasts and we believe they s hould be releaved of the burdens of a district with which they have no interests in common and given a chance to develop themselves in an atmosphere more suitable to their refinement and culture Lebanon Falcon We trust that the readers of The News in Southern Kentucky will not overlook the interviews that appear in this paper each week in regard to roads and bridges The fact is that it is hard to find a man in this part of the country who is unwilling to be taxed for building bridges and macadam roads The time is approaching when we must act or lose t h e golden opportunity of securing these most needed improvements Public opinion is a strong factor in the accomplishing of such ends and while Q1 people are not only willing latthese things be done they are actually demanding them Now is the timeVto start the work in earnest If there are citizens in the county who oppose tJi e proposition we will give them ample space to state the same The same proposition is open to those who believe that we should make roads and build bridges or take other steps of advancement There is not the least probiabili ontressfromAdair is placed in the Fourth dis

audience Mr Azbill devoted his lecture to those things about Japan and- the Japanese which are written about- in the books and papers and could not have been down by anyone except by some one who had been an eye witness of the things spoken about The things said by him illustrates that the Japanese are a highly civilized people and that too a civalization independent of ideas received by them from contact with other peoples LEXINGTON KY Being an Adair county citizen trans planted to the bluegrass I thought I would write a few words to the News- I see you are making a determined fight for internal improvements- The progress and general welfare of any community depends almost entire ly upon the highways and avenues of communication which connect the va rious sections of the community and that connect it with the world at large The section where the greatest pros perity is to be found is where the roads and highways are developed to the highest degree IIWhat is it that makes the great dif between the bluegrass section of Kentucky and the mountain section in enlightenment and prosperity When Kentucky is mentioned as being elI whereIWhen Kentucky is mentioned as it too often is as being the home of the moonshiner the assassin the feudist and the backwoodsman the mind of a foreigner instantly reverts to the moun tains of the state where the demoniac everIIWhat makes this great difference between two sections of the same state Evidently not the people for we are all of a common stock not the soil entire for lots of the mountain land is asfly as the bluegrass No we must look elsewhere for a solution of this state of things The reason is to be found in the fact that the bluegrass is intersected by a network of the finest railways and turnpikes in the world This being the case the only thing for the people of the less favored region of Kentucky to do is to build roads 1 good roads and plenty of them The county of Fayette builds splen did turnpikes then they spread a coat of black oil over them twice a year and as a result of this we have a set of pikes absolutely free from dust andas solid as any pavement The Secretary of Agriculture at Washington D C recently sent to the Home Construction Company of Lexington which company is at the countyIr large number of cuts and views of the various pikes of the county The gov ernment wanted these cuts to use in their advertising matter in their fight for better roads all over the country The best and practically the only way for Adair County to come to ner rightful place among the counties of Kentucky is to spend money for more and better roads and lots of them Money so spent will be paid back tenfold in the increased prosperity of the citizensThe way Adair county willever get a railroad is by so improving her internal conditions that the financial world will be convinced that it would bea paying investment to build a road Adair county has her own destiny in berhanth and when the world is con vinced that old Adair is determined to come to iKe front then and only thfen will capital be drawn to Adair county in sufficient quani y to help the county the old axiom that God help those wtoiljielp themselves

The deer now in their preserve on the Colt property are all practically full grown as the youngest ones are over a year old They are now wearing their winter suits a trifle darker in color than the leaves that strew the ground in tneir little park and they all seem as contented as if they were assured that a future of prosperity awaited them Things do not run smoothly in deer however for the bucks are in temper and have been for a month or two a characteristic of the male during the rutting season They fight one another and resent attention oil the part of humans for that matter Within a few days one of the men on the grounds found two of the bucks lying on the grass each with his horns interlocked in the others one in addition had caught his fore legs in the others antlers so that movement on his part was out of the question Assistance was secured and the two animals were finally dis entangled They were exhausted and lay quietly on the ground for some tit tle time after they has beenre Whatever their difference had they had forgotten it by the time they were able to walk about again Had they been wild deer they would have starved to death where they lay No one now on the Colt estate can remember the time when the deer were brought there though it is that they were secured by or to Mrs Colt after the death of husband The herd is now somewhere near high water mark as for many years there were only seven or eight of the animals While they are more numerous now they are snowing the effects of in and in breeding for it is said they do not average as large as their ancestors were 20 years ago Most of them die natural deaths though there have been some notable exceptions to the rule One said to be the finest buck ever on the grounds was shot 12 or 13 years ago because he had become so ugly in disposition that his presence was dangerous to his fellows as well as to human visitors He was an animated breach of the peace and Mrs Colt was forced to have him killed DEER INCREASING IN JERSEY Good Results of the Law Passed in Eastern State to Save Them from Extermination Tuckahoe N JThe great swamps in New Jerseys three lower counties Cape May Atlantic and Cumberland bid fair huntingnof these counties declare that the deer are now as plentiful as they were half a century ago when it was an easy matter to shoot five or six in a daysI huntSix years ago deer were exceedingly scarce in the South Jersey woods They were hunted so relentlessly that they swampsfthe animals seemed likely Then the legislature interfered in 1901 a law was passed forbidding deer shooting for three years During that period the deer increased so rapidly that the legislature passed another law making it unlawful to kill deer for a further period of two years and then- they could be hunted only on Wednes days in November Many sportsmen are in favor of continuing the closed season for three or five years longer and allow lng each hunter to kill only two deer in a season
