me down for better highways and bridges Jn the winter season in many localities of the county the roads are almost impassa ble hence farmers cannot get to mar ket with theur produceat least they cannot have more than a half load Let the Fiscal Court buy crushers The people would not feel the tax and in a few years travel would be smooth and the county more prosperous than at any time in the past I am per fectly willing to pay my tax toJ benefit the public roads of Adair County 1 hope the Fiscal Court will favorably consider the proposition Mr W L Walker a leading fmer chant of this place upon being ap proached said You can state that I am enthusiastically in favor of improving the roads of Adair County and am more than willing to pay an additional tax for said purpose The grader is all right provided stone is put upon the grades I think the Fiscal Court should purchase crushers and put them to work There is but little gravel in the county but there is plenty of limestone rock and it should be utilized Crushers are used in other counties giving entire satisfaction Good roads would help the farming element more than any other class of people and be ing interested in farming to f some extent 1 want better roads I anijjfiot opposed to bridges where they are needed Dr W R Grissom I amiperfectly familiar with the roads in this county and they certainly need attention I want metal to follow the work of the grader and am willing to pay an addi tional tax I cannot conceive of an en terprise that would build up Adair county faster than good roads I want the Fiscal Court when it meets in April to make a levy for at least two rock crushers I have at all times been in favor of public improvement It is the only way to success Our county is reasonably prosperous but if we had better roads the farms and other property would be greatly en hanced I would make no kick against bridger where they are neededt Mr W L Stotts states I have always been in favor of making sub stantial roads I believe in the use of the grader and a rock crusher Make a good grade first then put a good heavy coat of stone on it and the job is finished It is a great pity that the county has neglected the making of roads and bnilding of bridges I want to see bridges built over all the streams wherever needed We need a bridge over Pettisfork and it would not re quire much money to build it You may say that I favor a good strong tax rate for these perposes and favor keeping up the work until our county is placed where it rightfully belongs one of the front counties in the State WR Watson of Watson writes the News as follows Allow me to express myself on the public improve ment proposition f heartily endorse the many favorable views on the subject It is a duty every man owes to help better the condition of his county inIwe fall behind other counties in a progressive way Conditions are and always will be just as we make them Taxes to build bridges and to make onlyIfdoubt and we need better roads but in this section there is available gravel for that purpose If there is any part of the county not so favored it would be well to put in a stone crusher but the bridges first then the roads as I see it JrlJProhoneySr came in thje office last Wedneedaand said Here is the money on my criptiontoy rpaper 1 not only want to keep the gas blie engine running but I want you to state that I ski for improving our tt roads 1 want rock crusherssr band hope the Fired Court ia ifr J ii iftiri aw- fi flj r jJot will not hesitate in making the deal I have been getting up rock for some time and could furnish the county a sufficency to pike a mile or two of road I do not think there is a class of peo ple who would be more benefited than the farmers if a good road system was inaugurated and as 1 am one of them I want to see the work begun The bridges that the county has built have been of untold benefit and another one or two would not be a miss Judge Junuis Hancock expresses him self plainly upon the road question improvementof the county faster than good public highways He further stated that stone must be put upon the grades and that it would be economy to buy crush ers He does not favor burdensome taxation but said that the purchasing byIMr Rollin Hurt was met 1Hov do you stand on the proposition to buy rock crushers Oh everybody should be in favor of the movement if we expect to have good roads The work of the grader should be followed with metalthe only way to perma nently benefit our public highways Good roads isa natter of economy They save the wear and tear of vehi cles and make travel safe and easy I think the Fiscal Court should favor ably consider this proposition Rock is cheap gravel is scarce hence the purchasing of crushers make it a mat ter of necessity Another matter is that the roads ought to be widened before the use of carriages became so common the narrowness of the roads did not make so much difference but in the last ten or fifteen years every fam lily almost has secured a carriage and some families have more than one and the use of these require a man to be continually on the lookout or else he Willevery now and then be caught at a place in the road where carriages and wagons can not pass each other I seldom make a trip that I do not have to either wait a considerable time at ma ny places to allow wagons or buggies to pass or else get caught in a place where I cannot pass and cannot turn around and have to secure the help of the persons meeting me to either lift my own buggy or that of the other fel low out of the road Judge H C Baker said Yes sir I am in favor of good roads and bridges over our streams wherever needed We cannot do all that should be done within a month or year but every un dertaking must have a beginning Having made a beginning we ought not to stop or turn back I know of nothing that will add more to the ma terial prosperity of our farming popula tion than good roads It is unfortunate that so much of the work on our roads is done ina makeshift way The best methods for permanent improvement should be adopted and what is done should be well done Iregard the rock crusher an indispensable adjunct to the scraper The claim of our Neats ville and Pellyton friends for a bridge across Green river in that direction is highly meritorious and should receive consideration Mr Van Dunbar one of the most ex tensive farmers and traders in the Green river country was in town Monday and stated to a News man that he was not in favor of buying a rock crusher and did not want a bridge built at Neatsville He took the position that the river was changing its bed at that point and a bridge would not be safe He also said that it took too much power and too large a force of hands to operate a crusher and for that reason he is opposed to its purchase and use by the county Mr W B Rowe who is one of the most prosperous farmers in the county states that he is in favor of public improvement and is saisfied that the roads of Adair County need im mediate attention He wants a levy made to the extent of our ability to pay for crushers The work of the grader must be followed with metal Every farmer should favor the proposi tion as that class of people would reap the greatest benefit i Editor News As a tax payer 1 have noticed the interviews published in your valua ble paper in regard to the improvement of roads and the necessity pt bride That our public hg1IU should iimproved and a bridge built I 1i 7 tr- D r ii i at Neatsville But that the suggestion tobuy rock crushers would entaila useless expenditure of money is evident from the fact that Green river Russell creek Big creek and other streams everyroadshould buy a crusher in addition to the cost of the machine many hands would necessarily have to be employed to quarry rock run the machine and haul and place the metal on the roads Why not employ hands and teamsters to haul the gravel from the river and creeks It would certainly lessen the cost and would therefore be less burdensome to the tax payers The supposed fictitious and unjust valuations fixed on many farms by the last boad of supervisors admonish us to economize M F ANNOUNCEMENTS The Commencements at the M F College will begin May 13 Sunday with the baccalaureate sermon The oratorical contest will be given Tuesday evening May 15 and will be

FRAZER The death of the above named old colored man occurred last Friday night at 12 oclock He was about eighty six years old and had been an honest man all his life More than fifty years ago he made a profession of his faith in God and united with the Presbyterian Church in this place and wasatfaithful and devout member until the end came The funeral services were held in the Presbyterian church Sunday afternoon the building being wellfilled with white and colored friends who met to hear tributes of praise of the life and char acter of an honest man from his youtb Rev4 A R Kasey Pastor of the Meth odist Church officiated Rev W C Clemens being absent After Script ure reading and song service Judge H C Baker spoke tenderly of the worth of the old man He had been his neighbor from boyhood and during all these years he had never known uncle Reuben to speak an nnkind word nor use one that could not be said in the church of God Judge Baker spoke at length and his manner evidenced that he was deeply moved At the conclusion of Judge Bakers remarks Governor Hindman paid tribute in a few appropriate words When the ser vices at the church closed the remains were conveyed to the family burying ground and there deposited by I the grave of tiiedeceaseds mother In the passing of Uncle Reuben Fxa er this town has sustained a loss and several i white families have given up a faithful friend and

About Town Mur dered Near the Colored Baptist Church Jodie Burbrid e a Notorious Character Charged With the Horrible Crime Others Implicated GAMBLING THE CAUSE OF THE MURDER As an evidence that crapshooting and drinking liquor inevitably lead men into trouble and often to high crime and death we have only to recite a murder that occurred in the suburbs of Columbia Sunday morning between five and sixoclock The particulars as we gather them are about as follows Saturday night Bill McClure Jodie Burbridge Tom Smith John Burbridge and Adolphus Newby and others met at the home of Elmer Willis located near the Burkes ville pike one mile from the court house The crowd had an abundance of liquor and early in the night a crap game was started It proceeded un interuptedly until between five and six oclock Sunday morning when a dis pute over the game arose between Tom Smith and Bill McClure While the quarrel waS in progress Jodie Bur bridge put in taking the part of the Smith negro At this juncture as we are informed the parties left the house and immediately after getting on the outside Burbridge and McClure clinch ed Burbridge had a longbladed knife and in a few minutes McClure had re ceived his death wounds He was stabbed and cut across the breast to the hollow one of the wounds being six inches in length He was also cut upon an arm and received one stab near the groin Burbridge seeing that he had murdered his man took to the bushes and up to this time lIe has not been apprehended though officers are scouring the country for him and tel egrams have been sent to all the near by railway stations After McClure had received his death wounds he walked one hundred yards before sinking This makes the second man Bur bridge has killed in crap games He is an all round bad negro and it is hoped that he will be caught and justice meeted out to him Aside from gambling and occasionally taking too much liquor the dead man was a faithful work hand and his services were gen erally in demand An inquest over the remains was commenced Sunday afternoon but it was not concluded until Monday The verdict of the Jury was as follows We the jury find that Wm McClure came to his death on March 4th 1906 near the house of Elmer Willis in Adair county Kentucky and that he was murdered by Jodie Burbridge with a springback1 dirk knife the thrust being 6 inches long through the ster num

t h beer interest combined rules Ken tucky That these interests com bined prevent the people through the legislature and courts from having what they want when what they want is in conflict in the slightest way with the profits of their business We do not ob ject to the whisky men making a fight for their interest that is natural except where it applies to the violation of laws but we do think that it is time that the temperance people to fully under stand what they have to fightl Men are elected to the Le ture by money put up by the whisky people and the temper ence people go to sleep over the fact until they find out that these same men whom they did not even suspicion are keeping tem perence laws from a vote or else burying them in the committees where they are never allowed to see the light of day Why is it now at Frankfort that the Coun ty Unit bill is not allowed to come to a vote in the Senate It is because a lot of Senators do not want to go on record as voting againt it It is nothing but a species of cowardice They are trying to kill the bill without having the cougage to vote aginst it An investigation into some of these Senators would dis close the fact that they are in close communion with the whiskye interests Of course a are some Senators who are honestly opposed to this measure from consciencious convictions and will vote against it if it is ever hEputmen we have not an unkind word to say We glory in a man who stands for his convictions whether we think he is right or not butI we have no patience with the trimmer and the demagogue who talks one way with the people talks another way in the Legisla ture and uses his utmost endeavor to keep from committing himc self on a proposition that will cost him popularity We are not an enthusiast on the County Unit IJill we can see some faults in it but we can at this distance from Frankfort detect tthe slime of whisky in its opposition We have another evidence of the power of this distilling and brewing interests in Louisville The Kentucky Statutes say in section 1303 Any person who shall on Sunday keep open a bar room or other place for the sale of spirituous vinous or malt liq uors or who shall sell or other wise dispose of such liquors or any of them on Sunday shall be fined not less than 10 nor more than 50 for each offence This is just as plain a provision of the law as can be made It is the law that closes the saloons inEliz abethtown on Sunday yet 1000 saloons are open in Louisville every Sunday This is the pow er of the whisky influence in politics contributes to campaign funds and in return it con trols legislation and protects the saloon keeper in violating the law How long are the good people going to stand for such things Etown News 4 Starving To Death Because her Stomach

eggs There is not a soul on earth that we ever of whether professor or layman expert or otherwise not eyen a poultry editor who is sup posed to know everything worth knowing about poultry that can tell by the outward appearance whether the hen is one of the 250 eggs a year or of the 50 egg kind And we would beg to be relieved of the task to sort the young pullets out into the good from average and indifferent lay ers We might as well be asked to go into the cornfield in July when the corn is knee high and tell by the plants which ones will have the largest ears or which will have two ears and which only one If we are after eggs we must first get up a flock of a good egglaying strain such as Leg horns Wyandottes Langshans Plymouth Rocks etc and then sort out the good layers by the of the trap nest The select d breed we would keep forj breeding and surely not sell off this valuable stock the first spring after they have given a good egg yield in winter Practical Farm r The Breath

geometric solids for the use of the drawing classes The sets including cubes cones pyramids prisms cylinders and a number of fancy designs and curves They are made of wood and theJ work was done at Walkers ing mill The pieces are all in good form and are neat and smooth They are much more durable and convenient to care for and also much cheaper than if made in plaster Children who make drawings from these solidsI and are perfectly familar with shape and the way these forms will appear when drawn on a flat surface will not find the study of geometry a combination of meaningless lines so hard to un derstandPerspective or the way in which all horizontal lines con verge to a point level with the eye is not too Hard for the small est child to understand if simple forms and intelligent

her frocks that need freshening Let us begin with the mainstay separatewaiststhereis be done to change their effect Take for instance a white radium silk waist trimmed with cluny lace the lace being inserted in a Vshaped chemisette at the neck and in two bands arranged in suspender fashion The sleeves were long and the deep cuffs were soiled and worn The young woman who was deter mined to transform this waist first gave it a naphtha bath fol lowed with a good sun bath and a days airing Then she cut off the deep cuffs leaving the sleeves threequarter length As a fin ish for the sleeves she designed slashed gauntlet cuffs For these cuffs she considered many mate rials but at last decided upon cloth of silver and to give it a new French touch she appliqued upon the glistening silver fabric separate motifs of gold lace She was so delighted with these cuffs and the very festive air they gave her separate waist that she went a step further and made a shaped girdle of the same silver cloth with an applique of the lace as its decoration The girdle fastened invisibly at the left side and over the fastening she ar ranged one of the very new shaped bows of silver cloth th ends of which she stitched in gold thread just to suggest the gold note The waist whe worn with this anbcuffs really looked like an im ported model No one but the girl who accomplished the transformation would have recognized the waist This same waist could be worn with other less elaborate cuffs andif one preferred It would look very fetching an quite different if in place of th cloth of silver these accessories were made of white satin with an appliqded cutout design in pale brown leather Grace Mar garet Gould in Womans Hom- Companionn for March LOGS FROM LINCOLNS nOME After being stored three years in the cellar of an old mansion in College Point L I the logs that formed the cabin in which Abraham Lincoln was born were removed to a storage house in New York city They were the property of

There are over 200 logs and a dpor and shutter of the cabin window besides some pieces of boards The logs were purchased re cently by the Lincoln Farm As sociation and will be stored there until the association is ready to rebuild the cabin on its original site on the old farm near Hodgen vile Ky- After the logs had been loaded they were covered with Aniiefi can flags and the truck moved away

When the Turkish Minister Mele Mele came to Washington a grand ball was planned in his honor Hundreds of invitations were sent out and nearly every body who received one came for there was much curiosity to seethe important Turk in his native dress Parti eularly were persons anx ious to examine the splendid dress turban which had been dis cribed and talked about made nas it was of plaster of paris Ye looking like the finest muslin When the evening arrived Mele Mele seemed to be the only one who was not having a good time He stood looking as if he did no know that everybody was admir ing him and altogether was very much till suddenly he caught aJ glimpse of a big negro woman who was assisting in serving the supper Instantly he rushed up to he and throwing his arms about he neck gave her a good kiss ex plaining that he could not help it she reminded him so much of his best and most expensive wife and while the company thought it a very odd thing to do every body could understand

New York Pilot Eopes to Be Able to Get Family and Airship to Northern Goal New YorkCapt James A Clinton for 25 years a pilot in and around New- York ip confident that he has solved the secret of a practical airship To prove it he is willing to take the air route to the north pole guiding his own craft and taking his six little children as passengers Other aspiring explorers would better sit up and take- notice of what he says A propeller driven by a turbine and capable of either raising or lowerin- gt aiship is one of the secrets of the I Clinton craft Another is the driving propeller which forces air against the rudder in a manner which enables the ship to be always under control of the navigator independent of contending air currents which have proved the undoing of other airships Capt Clinton estimates that he can drive his ship about 15 miles an hour against a ten knot wind or 30 miles an hour under normal conditions In- Case cf accident to the gasoline en glue it can be disconnected apda hand device used Manual power will easily work the turbine wheels I have worked on my airship for 19I years Capt Clinton said I believe I now have it perfected I have in vented it on an entirely new principle of air navigation The same barriers found in air navigation are jtbwMTpre ent in water navigation except that in the air one must contend with forces assailing from every direction As- long as its aluminum iron and silk hold out the ship will find its way all over Ae earth and against all winds and never higher than at a safe dis tanceqI am experienced in the United States geological survey and not the least doubtful of what 1 have invented and ratented I would like a chance to prove as I believe I can do that at least one American knows more about airshipf than

fact we were misrepresent ed bYHthe clergy of other nations and races It was Ramakrishna who sug gested the idea of missions and it was followed I was one of the mission aries selected Vedanta is

part to the defeat of Russia by Japan The Chinese are awakening to the fact that they are not a subject people The feeling against the United States is very bitter because of the exclusion act This feeling is heightened by imaginary wrongs and ex aggerated descriptions of indignities heaped on Chinese in this country as sent home by Chinese in the United States But China as a whole has come to a belief that it is easier and cheaper to carry on a negative war against the United States than to attack missions and kill missionaries The country has learned that where there is no violence there is no punishment to follow This feeling is confined to the coast cities however and I do not believe that it would be safe for an American to venture into the interior provinces What the more intelligent of the Chinese want is that the exclusion act shall be intelli gently interpreted and shall be enforced only against those classes whom it is meant to affect DEATH UNITES OLD CHUMS Partners for Half a
