the trumpet vines are blowing On the air a dancing tuneIWhen the bluegrass in Is a climbing to your knees And the honey bees are wooing Roses nodding in the breeze Are you coming Are you from old Kentucky From the home of Henry Clay Where the memories of Lincoln Come up freshly every day Where the footsteps of the angels In the bluegrass make no sound Yet the violets they awaken Where theyre sleeping in the ground Then youre going Are you from old Kentucky Where Jeff Davis saw the lightJWhere the shadows softly nestle In the bosom of the night Where the stars look down in splendor On the swiftly running streams Where Gods made another Eden And has peopled it with dreams Then youre going wWhereWhere they make the finest whiskey From the very best of corn Where the women are the fairest That the sun ere shone upon In their cheeks the flush of roses In their eyes the light of dawn Then youre going l When the sun in old Kentucky Lightly rests upon the hills Where it gleams upon the mountains And is dancing on the rills When the bluegrass softly ripples Neath the wooing of the breeze And the sweet magnolia blossoms Gleam like snowflakes in the trees 1YouDENTON TEXAL Dear Editor- As we have been taking the News for some time I thought I would just drop you a few lines that might be of interest to friends in the ould country We have been located here at the town of Denton for the las ten years and have seen estate here double and quadru ple itself in value in that tune Icwas ten years ago Isnt that a good showing even for the growing west I is partly owing to our excellent t soil and climate partly to lack of fertilioID the soil o some of eastern states bu perhaps mostly to the ravages o the boll wevil further south that skywardDenton r ar t F 1f1 r E i P felsr F 5lb J en or eight thousand inhabitants situated at the intersection ofo the T P with the MK T railroad It has some very good schools the North Texas State localted here three years ago The girls College of Industrial Arts also a state institution and the south western Christian College belonging denominatednonprogress to the sect commonly ive Christians Besides these we have a business College one of the largest public school build ings in the state and two ward schools In all there are 2500 students in attendance at pres ent Now a word concerning its manufacturing interests There are two brick yards using all the latest improved machinery Three pottery factories turning out a high grade of ware Two I flouring mills one of which the Alliance Milling Co after win- ingn many Laurels with their product in Texas fairs were fin ally debarred from further entries at the St Louis fair they took every first prize on soft wheat flour and then at the orlds fair at Chicago and Paris k the town is worldfamous for something more then as being the home of the finest rough- riders in the world So much for Denton Now will give my impressions of the future Eldorado of the west West Texas has its disadvantag es worst of them is lack of rainfall Examine Maurys rain map of the United States and you will see that the line wet and dry runs north and sout through Denton The dry regions are said to be becoming more humid as the years go by any old inhabitant of the country will tell you that this country was once dry as the far western parts are now and that most of it will become not only habita ble but very productive seemIbe an accepted mixim us This gradual increase in pre I think has never been tufficiently explained 4but may be caused by such a large per cent of the land being put

its adaptability to different pur suits and much other matter of interest Pardon this dIgress- ion from the subject The people of all thinly settled countries seem to possess this characteristic in common they are very sociable and have about as much respect for one person- as another Law breakers are certainly tolerated more that in the East When I first went out near a little Western town to teach school there I thought it must be an intensely lawabiding place for there was nobody ever in the little jail but alas I soon found that it was not because no one deserved to be there Now would not leave the impression that there is any more lawlessness there but that justice suffers more through the administration of incompetent though not often corrupt officials On the other hand it is the place for those statring out in the world of accomplishment where the chap let of victory crowns him who perseveres and it is the land for me G E RICHARDS The Enid Of The World oIBear Grove la of all

Price 50c aaiLOQ Trial bottte free l tts j r KILLED FIFTY MEN Doc Middleton once a Noted Desperado Now a Good and Respacted Citizen Your story of the bad men of the West was all right as far as it went but one of the most noted of those men was entirely omitted I referto Doc Middle ton whose name has long been aI household word in Nebraska Wyoming and the Dakotas Let me here say that Middle ton is now a changed man andI no one would ever suspect him of crime His word is as good as gold and his friendship as true as steelII also want to say that many of our noted outlaws have become such by causes that were no choice of theirs Middleton was one of this class and his story is one that has brought him much sympathy I will tell you how it came aboutIIn the days when the Union Pacfic railroad was being builtc the town of Sidney in Nebraska was one of the hardest in the tough region Savage Indians were all around and still tougher class within The business part of the place was made up of dives saloons gambling dens and other places of vice Every man had a gun in his pocket and it did not require much provocation to make him use it The nights were made hideous by brawls and rarely did one pass without anI exchange of shots in some of the dives At that time young Middle ton was a medical student from the East He was of a quiet andi peaceable disposition and the last man in Sidney that anyone ever supposed had the making of des perado And he didnt have naturally but he was driven into it Of course there was no place for one to spend an evening ex cept in the saloons and to these the entire population gravitated One night young Middleton drop ped into one of the dance halls for an hours amusement In the place were a lot of United States soldiers stationed at Sid ney to guard against Indian at tacks They had been drinking heavily and were a bit more dangerous than the indians In a few moments a big burley blue came up to Middleton and grossly insulted him Middleton was a much smaller man but full of courage and he resented the treatment At this the drunken soldier clinched him and threw him heavily to the floor This roused all the daredevil in Middleton and he determined on swift revenge It was a law less place that knew no justice except strength The soldier was pounding Middleton but the lat ter was not idle In his hip pock et was a 32caliber revolver and he managed to draw Turning the muzzle upward he pulled the trigger and sent the ball through the heart of the one that was maltreating him The soldier died instantly but his comrades were determined to kill his slayer Middleton was too quick for them and escaping to the out side mounted his bron co and rode swiftly away The soldiers finding their victim had slipped vented their rage y de stroying the diye I visited the place a few years ago and found it completely dismantled while the walls and ceiling were coin pletely perforated with bullet holes lithe thing had ended there Middleton would have continued to be a lawabidinga1djlpeace able citizen but the Government Authorities at once offered a re ward for his capture This sent officers on his track and Middle i f E 1E t1 Jr s i rr ij il ton knew that if he was caught it meant death for him There was no choice for him but to fight or die His resolve was quickly tak en Arming himself from head to foot he defied all his pursuers and took to the deep canyons of the Bad Lands in Dakota He was ollowered by the fcflfc cers whom he shot one by one until he annihilated the entire posse He was now a dead shot and seems to be possessed of the most daredevil courage As he could no longer follow any peaceful vocation he took to the road and began to hold upstage coaches Alone and single handed he would stop a stage and rob all the passengers who had defied a dozen Indians In this business he was so successful that his name spread a terror far and wide Then Nebraska took up the case and offered 5000 for his capture dead or alive This brought down another swarm of officers on his trail but one by one they bit the dust by his nn erring aim Middleton didnt seem to even try to avoid them but shot them on sight This thing went on for years until Doc Middleton had proba bly killed 50 men All the time he protested that he would only be to glad to live a correct life if permitted to do so but he refus ed to give himself up to the galI lows At last his fearful deeds and prowess caused so much alarm that the authorities offered toI campromise To this Middleton assented and agreed to give up his outlaw life provided the State would pardon him This mode was finally agreed on and Middle ton came out and gave himself up To the credit of the State there was no treachery and he was at once released and put onI his good behaviorIFrom that day to this he has been one of the most exemplary of citizens His home is in Craw ford Neb and in that place I met him a few years ago and had many long conversations on his career ANOTHER IN LINE Why the Supreme court is hold ing back its opinion in the Pow ers case is known to the court which can not do other than re mand him to the State courts un less it should reverse itself in the case of Howard and in the Rodgers case from Vermont But whatever may be the reason the Supreme court has recently rendered a decision of decided inter est in civil cases especially of the class known as the Ku Klux cases where suits for damages are filedthe question being made in the question of the Lake Shore railway against the city of Cleve land And some Federal judges will be disappointed The case was removed from the State courts on the ground of local predjudice against the rail road and proceeded swimmingly until the Supreme court took a hand The Supreme court holds that a case can not be transfer red from a State court of compet ent jurisdiction to the Federal court unless the action could have been brought in the Federal court in the first instance Pre vious holdings of subordinate federal courts have been where even one of the defenants was a nonresident of the State in whose courts the suit was brought there could be a transfer to the Federal court on the ground of local predjudice The Supreme court overrules that blow at the sovereignty of States within their owjyurisdic tion and holds ihat if a case is brought in the State court and sought to be removtd to the Fad errnl ouit on the fround of kcal 4liI i i i lt W fJ t it6t predjudice all the defendants must be residents of other States in order to authorize its removal In other words that the suit must be one in which the Feder al courts wauld have had origi nal jurisdiction There is now pending in the Federal court for the eastern dis trict of Kentucky a case trans ferred from Fleming county on account of local predjudice where all the parties are resi dents of Kentucky The case will now go back to the court from which it should never been taken The decision is a distinct recognition of the rights and the powers of the States and is in line with recent important deci sions evincing something ofa return to reason and a rebuke to the Federal judges who look up on their courts as supreme over the courts of the State Owens boro Messenger PRACTICAL REFORM The order of the Board of Pub lic Safety closing theaters skat ing rinks and playhouses on Sunday follows

subscriber full value for his money As a rule a man will not sell his goodsI below a fair value and the News an exception Of all the local papers that come to our desk there are but few that surpass the News in giving the happenings and a great many leave out more than they get in In other words we claim to be giving a paper worth a dollar giving our best effort- to this part of the state and to

LAST WEEK TWO MUSICAL ENTERTAINMENTS WERE GIVEN PIANO GUITAR MANDOLIN VIOLIN Etc WERE HEARD The musical entertainment given in Pages Hall by Mrs Rounds and her studends last Friday evening was one of the most delightful that has been witnessed in Columbia for many months The entire programme was faultlessly rendered and contained many pieces full of sweet strains that made every one present feel that mu sic has its charms The piano guitar mandolin and violin all under skillful hands formed such a combination of melodies as to delight the entire audi ence It was in the main soulstirring and invigorating and if one instrument or any one party deserves special no tice we would be compelled to mention the violin and Mr Elam Harris who seems to master it and in whose hands made chords so sweet and touching as to awaken the love of music that no other agencv could have touched Another deserving mention is that of little Amelia Damron whose sweet voice and angellike appearance captivated the audience with a song The hall was crowded to its capacity and Mrs Rounds and those who partic ipated in the programme feel compli mented over the evidence of public ap preciation On the evening of the 22nd in com memoration of George Washingtons birthday the Columbia Brass Band gave an entertainment in the court house to one of the largest audiences that ever hungered and thirsted for music in this town The programme consisted of recitations band music piano duets and solos The exercises were opened by a fifteen minute speech from Governor J R Hindman who inpointiIigIwas in

Fowers all the time in full bloom I ART We often hear parents advocate the idea that the study of art does not open up a way of earning a living This is a great mistake Art teaching is as profitable as any other teaching and the salaries the same or more in large towns and colleges and the illustrating artist demands and receives the very highest pay for his work This branch of art is in such demand and the de mand increasing all the time that it has created a new art suited to the present time Formerly a beautifnl or sad or gay picture something to repre sent some single thought was the chie idea in painting Or a certain type of human development would be the idea carried out like Millets peasants or Titians red haired beauties This singleness of ideas still dominates pictorial artists even the impressionists who dote on misty mornings and towns wrapped in smoky purplish grayness But the illustrator makes art a new real present world to us in every book and paper Every thing and everybody reappear as in life and we at last realize art and nature are one and can only be learned together Together they must be studied and enjoyed for either soul development or for the hope of gain Butwe must not forget a knowledge of drawing opens up a prac tical way to positions as machinists or getting out patents or civil engineering or architecture in fact every comfort we enjoy

to accuse him and then introduce proof upon both sides and decide from the testi monyThe Friend who wrote the Obituary of Green county did not do so with the intention of knocking on the county but with theiview to taking an in voice of the countys actual con dition her liabilities and assets and in this way hoped to cause the citizens to know just where we are at so to speak just what resources we have and what we most lackHe has accomplished his purpose His article has caused many people to ask them selves the question Is Green county really dead or just being aroused from a sleep of oppres sion1 There is nothing that does a county more good than for its citizens and of ficials to stop and take theirbear- ings once every year or two and see just how it stands The mer chant takes an invoice every year to see how he stands if he is los ing or making money Green county is not dead She is taking now a new lease on life and before her is a long life full of prosperity She has plenty of wealth No county that has the natural resources that Green county has can never die Her lands are strong and she is the the best watered county in the State She has two of the best banks in the State at her county seat She has splendid citizens Green county was at one time oppressed by R R bonds but that oppression has gone She is now free to develop her resources and this is sure to come She has natural gas beneath her surface one well has existed for half a centuryShe Judge Graham backed up with a splendid Fiscal Court composed of such men as Squires Durrett Rhea Coffey and Chau doin who are energetic pro gressive men and who will man age the affairs of the county with credit They will arouse her up and put her in the front ranks This court will give Green Coun ty the only thing lacking and that is roads Graders and a rock crushers will be bought and roads will be made roads that will be equal to any Green County today is in fine financial conditionThere are two sides to every question While I am praising Green County I must admit some things on the other side If a boy has wealthy parents and every chance is offered him to do and be something in life and he does not take advantage of it he is in worse condition than the boy who has never had any chan cesGreen County has plenty chances to be something to press forwasd and to open her resour ces to outside capital There are plenty of rock and gravel on every road in most cases enough in the roads to make good pikes if such material would be utilized in the right way There are no excuses now for not having roads We have no Rail Road tax to pay We have money in the county treasury Now it is up to us to show the people that we are not de ad but one of the livest corpses in the State Let us join hands with Adair County in building goodroads so that her citizens can come to our town free and not be burden en with a heavy toll to a 1tIttown Lets be friendly We are our brothers keeper Lets offer to the traveling public good roads and give a hearty welcome to a good county with fie roads heQbiwaryYas a time finotice If we are notdead we must 1trft f rM1 h i not look like a corpse or evenact like one Buzzards never gather around a horse that is kicking and snorting away in the pas ture Lets take renewedener gy and avail ourselves of what we have and we will forget that some one said that Green is dead It is a fact that when growth ceases death follows Nothing can be at a standstill without serious loss Unless Green county builds roads at once and the town authorities of Greensburg exercise their authority invested in them by virtue of law and build safe pavements clear the streets from machinery salt hogs cattle and that rowdy country and town element that makes it unsafe for a citizen to live at home unless his house or his hide is bullet proof we may feel assured that Green county and Greensburg will die and a thatbThe streets and public roads are for the public to travel over andnot for woodpiles ware houses pig pens stockyards and machine shops We all know that if a stranger is so lucky as to reach the town limits in safe ty with his vehicle he still has troubles ahead of him He may commit a grave breach of eti quette by butting into a cow or two quietly chewing their cuds or a sow and pigs enjoying a bed of straw or an evning meal ofmilk If he escapes these and turns this way he may be intro duced to a car load of salt a wagon or two a cane mill if in season or if he turns that way may be mowed down in his ca reer by a mower If he desires furrows plowed in his cheeks he can have choice between an Ol iver Chilled South Bend Bissell left hand or bothbplows These experiences will harrow his feelings because there are disc and straight tooth har rows in abundance But after all every dark cloud has a silver lining He can have his cuts and bruises carefully bound up by a one two or four horse selfbind ers ready and vaiting if he ap peared during thebinder sea sonI

answer to Senator Carmack in the run they are making for United States Sen ator and we are sure it will be read with interest But fellowcitizens let me sling just one more pebble before I enter the discussion of other questions which involve the hap piness of the people I am ar raigned before the bar of public opinion upon the charge that I am too sentimental be a United States Senatorthat there is too much humor and too much music in iny soul to meet the requirements of that high and dignified office My only plea to this charge is that I was born that way and that I was reared in a land of sentiment Far up among the Blue mountains of Tennessee where the morning first smiles on the hills and where the rivers are born I first openedmy eyes to the light of day and heard the first songs of sentiment from the lips that are now dust There where the tall and silent peaks forever point upward towards the sky I first dreamed of God and the bright vings cirkling about them taught me my first lesson of liberty and when destiny led me out into the world I gathered up all my songs andstories of the country folks and the farm all the sweet asso ciations of my youth and I wove them into a web of sentiment and told them upon the platform to a million people little dream ing as I endeavored to point men and women to the better and brighter side of life that I was making a gulf between myself and the goal of my ambition But now after the snows that never melt have fallen upon me after a long period of service to the State I wake to find a frowning giant of intellect standing with his weavers beam across my path and shouting There is no room in the high court of statesmanship for sentiment in the Senate a smile is unconstitutional I learn from the lips of scorn that I am on too low a plane that my ideals are wrong and that if I would wear the mantle of a Senator I must breathe mal ice and bitterness into human souls and greet the common peo ple with frowns but fellowcit izens I would rather give up my hopes and aspirations tonight and walk out from this cam paign into obscurity and oblivion than to choke this fountain of sympathy for the common people that bubbles in my heart like a springTake sentiment away from humanity and what have you done You have blown out the light of hope and love in every home You have quenched the spirit of the church and of civil ization and left mankind in eter nal darkness and death But for the warm gulf stream of sent iment that rises in the equator of Gods infinite love and flows around the world human life would be stripped of all its beau ty and its bloom and happiness would lie cold in death on the frozen bosom of despair There is not enough of sentiment in this world there is not enough of it in the Capital of the nation there is not enough of the sentiment of humanity breathed into the laws of the land to shield the weak from oppression of the strong There is not enough of that pure and holy sentim ntofpatriotjSmin the bosoms of our statesmen which diffuses the blessings of liberty to all alike with special privileges to none and which alone can link the nation together in the common brotherhood ofman l If there were more of it in the 1i i r d i1j fj tI i heart of the senior Senator he would not be sneering at those who have it and curling his lip with scorn at the songs and di alect of the oldtime darkey of the South vhich are woven like threads of silver into the history of the grandest civilization that ever flourished in the world In my doctrine I have told stories in the negro dialect but they were stories of a generation that has passed away They were stories of the old black mammy who soothed pratling chivalry to sleep with her lullabies and dandled upon her knees the babyhood of the greatest spirits the republic has ever known and taught them the music of her dialect theIand siept by the door at night to feed and guard ole missis and de chillun while his master was far away on the battlefield fighting to perpetuate his slavery They were stories not of this gen eration of freeborn negroes who grew up with the Senator and are striving to grasp his classic dialect They were not stories of this worthless generation of negroes who as soon as they leave brickyard and the plow handle and begin to learn hic hec hoc its goodbye gee whoa haw buck tow and 1 hen Some thorough and
