Ft i li i i M IMPROVEMENTSWANTED Pointers That indicate the General Feeling of the People GOOD ROADS MORE BRIDGES Mr 1 T Farris of Cane Valley was met Friday I am in favor of bettering the condition of our county roads I want the Fiscal Court to purchase rock crushers and build bridges where needed I will cheerfully pay my part of the expense Persons who do not travel over the county have but little conception of the condition of our pub lie highways They are getting worse all the time and if they are not improved in a few years farmers can not reach the market with a thirdof a load of produce Repair the roads is my motto Dr S P Miller I want to see the county roads in better condition The grader does good work but in order to make substantial highways the grades must be covered with metal If rock crushers are the machines needed then I am in favor of the Fiscal Court pur chasing them But in my judgment the way to get good roads is to build pikes and tax the county to pay for same Mr G T Rodgers of Milltown puts it in the following language which cannot be misleading I am heartily in favor of good roads and bridges over all the streams wherever needed These improvments are badly needed and just now there are many places in our roads almost impassable Good county highways inhancej farm lands and besides they make every class of business more lively Adair is one of the best mountian counties in the State if it can be called a mountian county and she is justly entitled to better roads and more bridges I hope the Fiscal Court will make an appropria tion for these improvements I am perfectly willing to pay my part of the tax for rock crushers Mr S D Barbee who is a farmer and taxpayer speaks in this language I do not think more bridges should be built at this time but I am in favor of the County Court buying rock crushers The roads in many localities need immediate attention Delay makes matters worse I am perfectly will ing to pay my part of the tax for rock crushers Mr W A Coffey says I am in favor of better roads and believe it would be economy for the county to purchase two stone crushers It will require but little expense now to grade our roads properly and when this is done if wecan put stone on we will soon have them in condition that they can be kept in good repair with but little expense Public improvement results in private benefit to every property owner in the county The results of the past few years clearly indicate this The spirit of public improvement began in our country in 1902 since which time we have I suppose spent something like twenty thousand dollars in building bridges and the betterment of our roads and taxable wealth has increased dnring that same period about seven hundred thousand dollars While this is not all due to public improvement yet it is certainly due to some extent to this fact If we only attribute one seventh of this increase in the value of our property to the public improvement made we have then realized five dollars return for every one expended This increase in wealth may be attrib uted by some to the board ofsupervis ors but the sales of land prove this to be incorrect In my opinion the property owners of our county and especially the farmers will receive a greater return for money judiciously expended in the building of good roads than for any investment we can make With good macadam roads the farmer living six miles from town is as conven lent to market as those now living half the distance I do not favor a burdensome rate of taxation but think we should build goodshighway each Year as possible without it becoming oppressive Nothing can in my judgment so greatly enhance the value of farm lands as good roads and- nidgeLb H P1Jq Qf Peh states his posit ion in

facts in view their buyer spent several weeks last October at the meeting of the Tri State Carriage Dealers Association which met at Columbus 0 He also visited most all the large manufactures in the U

neednt be afraid of me father replied the boy laugh ing I know how far to go and when to stop The lad left his fathers house twirling his cane and laughing at the old mans notions A few years later the lad grown to manhood stood at the bar ofa court before a jury which had just brought a verdict of inbwhich he had been concerned Before he was sentenced he ad dressed the Court and said among other things My down ward course began in disobedience to my parents I thought I knew as much of the world as my father didand I spurned his advice but as soon as I turn edmy back on my home

of town and are edited by practicial men vho are pretty well acquainted with the world the flesh and the devil and in not one of them did we find a semblance of defense of whisky In none of them was there a trace of vulgarity and none taught or justified dishon esty Neither could we find a sneer at purity at religion at the best things in life In many of them were excellent bits of advice little homely sermons on temperance in all things frugal ity Wherever there was mentioned of the public schools it was in terms of praise To be sure here and there was fun poked at sham and some scorn at pretense But the note in everyone of these papers was for decency progress erilight ment morality And to these editors during these thirteen years we have been a publisher- we have grown to know many of them personally and of those whose papers reach our desks not one is a drinking man not a confirmed gambler not one a libertine A pretty decent lot they are in fact we doubt if any other profession can offer a higher or even as high showing Besides all this the country editor is proverbially liberal free- hearted in every way No public subsciption list ever passes him without his mite This isnt

plea of the Mexican veterans who are appealing to Congress for better provision for the decrepit and needy survivors of the war of sixty years ago Congress would do a graceful and patriotic thing by promptly granting the desired relief As the memorial of the veterans points out a man who was of age at the time of enlistment- in that war is tow more than 80 years old and of the survivors a large portion are 90 years of age or older They are so few in number that the money necessary to relieve their distress would not be missed from the Treas uryThe Mexican War cost the United States hardly more than is now paid out every year or two in Civil War pensions The men who fought suffered many hardships and privations and won for the United States mag nificent additions to our domain A small percentage of the taxes which the goverment now col lects in the States and Territories erected from the region an nexed at the close of that war would make the survivors com fortable for the period of life re maining to them r The additional expense would be for a shorttime only In five can1laco guard of them left Make them comfortable while they live No man who has served Jus coun try well in

friendship is just a so clot ladder the soul goes down faster than the feet can climb up The fact that this world does not agree with you gives na certainty that the next one will Many men think they are saints because they have such an intense hatred of certain sinners Its hard for the man who has ground off his nose on the money mill to smell a taint or anything Its better to take chances on

aIimail matter WED MARCH 14 1906 The bill introduced In the leg islature to place Adair county in the Fourth Congressional district was brought to the front one day lastweek and was killed by the skillful tactics of tacking on amendments making it impossi ble of passage The truth of the whole matter is that the repre sentative s from theThird district hen on giving Butler to the Fourth knocked us out by press ingtheir claim and doing so when no hope of carrying their point could be seen or entertained The Fourth was willing to v add Adair and the failure of passage is not due to the action of its representatives The trut- hI that Hon J M Mitchell rep resentative from Green and Tay lor stood for the bill with all the firmnessand fidelity that enters the makeup of an honest cour ageous man and furthermore he- Ws truely and honestly repre matsenting ter The Democrats of Adair are not unmindful or unappreciative of Mr Mitchells position and in the future we trust that we can have an opportunity to show him in a more substantial way the true appreciation of Adair county Democrats for the honest and faithful efforts to help us out and aid us in so doing As it is we are left in the Eleventh to fight as we have in the past with out having a rayof hope Many of Adair county Democrats were willing to be placed anywhere just to getout of the Eleventh but so far as we are concerned it makes but little difference whether we were left in our present district or switched on to the Third for the bulk of political aspirants of that district has no brotherly eling for our county PoP

betterment o the county roads The grader does work but it must be followed wit in order that substantial improvement is made I am not opposed to bridges where they are actually needed and am willing to be taxed for same At this time however I think the Court should turn its attention to the public highways Good roads would be of untold benefit to the farming class and they should interest themselves in the movement MrJ A English who removed from Cumberland County to Adair says I was perfectly astonished when I removed to this county and found the roads in such a bad condition I had heard much of the enterprising people of Adair county but as above stated was sadly disappointed in traveling over the public highways The grader must be used but in order that permanent improvement be accomplished crushers will have to be purchased and the grades followed with stone I am also in favor of more bridges andam ready to pay my part of the tax for said purposes Now is the time to act and I hope the Fiscal Court will so decide An accident happened to the motor car last Saturday It was enrcute to Columbia from Campbellsville having six or eight passengers aboard When near Burdick

money of the many for the benefit of the few is the ship subsidy bill passed by the Itsenateis gratifying that every Demo crat in the senate voted against the infamous measure and the Democrats of the house will do likewise But will the bill pass and become a law and authorize the raid on the treasury for millions of public money in aid of favored ship owners The house has done well in the matter of railway rate legislation If it has not accomplished all it has accomplished much will it stand by the public in the matter of subsidies to the ship owners or will it align itself with the senate in the raid on the treasu The amount of the subsidies 1lY from 300000 per annum the Pacific coast to 150000 Ion annum on the Atlantic coast with subsidies of 500 per ton to lesser vessels than those that cross either ocean If the ship ping intereststhe transAtlan tic and transpacific linesare entitled to be given bounty from the public treasury why not sub sidize each and every railway in the country Why not give the public money to the steamer on the Ohio the Mississppi the Ten nesse or the Green Why not subsidize each and ever stagecoach line every canal boat and every trolly company in the United States Do not railways and trolleys and canal boats and stage coaches carry the mail and passengers for hire Why make distiction in the case If th public money is to be shovele- out to one class of carrying cor porations why not to all classes The subsidy in any shape manner or form is paternalism rampant It is a plain diversion of the public funds to private en terprise in which the government of the United States has neither part nor lot It is a thing begotten in greed fostered in cor ruption and increased by the wo ful misconception of the Repub lican party of the relative duty of government and citizen It is worse in practice than the rob closebkin for the tariff is the thief that takes indirectly while the subsidy is the burglar with blud geon that takes directly from the treasury the money of the public and with the consent of the sen ate is to be allowed to apply it td his own uses Why not subsi dize everybody and everything If the doors of the treasury are to be opened to the subsidized steamship why not open them to all no matter in what guise they may come Will the representatives of the people in the house consent to the infamous stealOwensboro Messenger TILE NEWMAN LAW The House yesterday by a vote of 68 to 17 passed the Newman Senate Bill providing for a State Board of Control of Charitable Institutions the members to be appointed by the Governor and to recieve an annual salary of 2500 As the bill had already passed the Senate by a unani mous vote and as it has all along had the cordiale support of the Governor it is now to be regarded as one of the facts accomplished by the present session of the General Assembly The Times does not believe that the bill meets the needs of the State as they should be met and in that belief has been the consistent advocate of a nonpar tisan State Board of Charities and Corrections to which should be intrusted the care of the char t i t fi I j1li r- r itable and penal institutions of the State Such a board would remove alls possibilities of parti sanship in the conduct of the States institutions for the care of its unfortunate and criminal and would insure for them treat ment based solely on their indi vidualneeds and not on the ne cessity of providing good places for valuable political workers In this regard the Newman Bill falls short As a step toward a board which will in time be made nonpartisan as the people of the State are made to realize that the unfortunate and the criminal requires the best thought of the State in their care and treatment the bill is a distinct improvement over conditions as they now exist Its best feature however and one which is to be unreservedly commended is that it does away with unnecessary andexpensive local boards and places the charitable institutions of the State in a position where evils can be more readily and ef fectively remedied Muchof course of the value of the board to the State will depend on the character of the men appointed to it and their freedom from par tisan considerations and dicta tion in the carrying on of their work But with all things fav orable the Newman law will ac complish reforms of which the State has been in need and will pave the way for others of still greater moment Louisville Times i WILL NOT SAYM The story of a little Boer boy who refused to betray his friends ids told by Major Seely M P as an illustration of deeply rooted love of freedom and of country It happened during the Boer War I was asked said Major Seely to get some volunteers and and try to capture a command ant at a place some twenty miles away I got the men readily and we set out It was a rather desperate enterprise but we go there all right I can see the little place yet the valley and the farmhouse and I can hear the clatter of the horses hoofs The Boer General has got away but where had he gone It was even a question of the General catching us and not we catching the General we rode down to the farm house and there we saw a goodlooking Boer boy and some yeomen I asked the boy if the commandant had been there and he said in Dutch taken by surprise Yes Where has he gone I said and the boy became suspicious He answer ed I will not say I decided to do a thing for which I hope I may be forgiven because my mens lives were in danger I threatened the boy with death if he would not dis close the whereabouts of the General He still refused and I put him against a wall and said I would have him shot At the same time I whispered to my men Forleavenssak dont shoot The boy still refused although T could see he believed I was going to have him shot I ordered the men to aim Every rifle was leveled at the boy Now I said before I give the word which way has the General gone I remember the look iri the boys facea look such as I have never seen but once He was transfigured before me Some thing greater almost than anything human shonefromhis eyes He threw back his head and said in Dutch will not say There was nothing forit but to shake hands with the boy and go away Singapore Straights Budget V 2f j t 4 4lp y a rxn hrtJ A COLD BOTTLE OFDELICIOUS REFRESHING sr JH glfsey swelteringdayparts vigor and

patient to his own town With the hope of saving afew cents he will send away from home for any and many kinds of supplies thereby crippling every home en terprise Yet these same people are all the time receiving their portion of the benefits obtained by other members of that same community who steadfastly sup port their own town maintain ing a mraket for all Loyalty to ones own town is one of the most commendable types of pa triotism and no matter how patri otic a man may proclaim himself in a general way if he is disloyal in the little that helps to build up his own town and commnnity his patriotism as a citizen is of but small avail The decrease in population of many small towns and the enormous growth of the mail order houses in large cities during the past five years is cer tainly a very unpleasant demon stration of the disloyalty of a large portion of the people con tiguous to those towns who never think that it is right for one por tion of the people to gain their money at home at their usual avocations and then send that money to mail order houses In that event there would be no small towns for a home market Before you sent that mail order did you inquire if the merchants of your town had the article you wanted If you did how much did they ask for it and what did you pay If you did not inquire of the local merchants then we can say without fear of proof to the contrary that you could have gotten a better article for the same money you sent away But there are people that know that it is just as necessary to have a purchaser as a producer in any community To this loyal alle giance our small towns are de pendent for their very existence all the time these unpatriots are deriving the same benefits from the location of the adjacent mar ket town as its most ardent sup porter The inhabitants of our town are contributing their equal por tion toward the maintenance of our schools bridges roads churches indigents and all other cources of governmental andso cial expenses What benefit does any community derive from the great mail order house Do they create a demand for or give em loyment to any of OUI farmers blacksmiths carpenters masons doctors lawyers or preachers or do they in any way enhance the value of any commodity that we or either of us pro duce A recent incident fully demonstrated the value of the home town A n enterprising farmer for Illinois seeking a lo cation made this remark I will give five dollars more per acre all other things being equal for a farm within four miles of a market town as comparedwith one out eight That man never hada thought of mail order house but did know the benefits and advantages of a home mark et a sure object lesson to many Yours for a squaIe deal BRAIN LEAKS The boy who neglects his moth er will be sure to
