but who wants better roads I have never seen a rock crusher hence I do not know whether it would be best for the county to purchase them or not If I can be convinced that they will do the work necessary and they are not too expensive 1 would have no objec tions to a levy being made but at the same time I think it would be best for an individual or a company to own and operate the crushers Mr T E Paull a wellknown drug gist of Columbia wants it understood that he is in favor of improving our country roads He says The only way to accomplish this is for the Fiscal Court to buy rock crushers and put stone upon the highways The grader is useful but the work it does must be followed with metal I am a tax payer and I am perfectly willing to pay my part to bring about better road conditions I hope the County Court will make the necessary levy I do not think more bridges should be built at this time Mr Silas Cain of Glensfork was here Friday In talking upon the road question he said I want to see the roads of Adair county in good traveling condition and the way to make them passable at all seasons of the year is for the Fiscal Court to purchase rock crushers and put them to work I am also in favor of building bridges where needed I believe good roads and bridges would be of untold benefit to the county and I yant to see the work commenced and carried to a successful termination Mr M Cravens saysI am strictly in favor of pubIc improvments and especially do I endorse the movement to bring about a better road system I think the Fiscal Court should pur chase a sufficient number of crushers and rock should be put upon all the public highways in the county I think that a bridge should be built at Neats ville and I am willing to pay my part of the tax for said purposes The soon er we make better roads the better it will be for the county Mr Jo Dudly sayshThe people in my section so far as I know favor rock crushers to better the conditions of our county roads and would make no kick should a few be purchased but they do not think more bridges should be built at this time I know myself that the roads are in a wretched condition and if something is not done at once it will soon be almost impossible to get over them with loaded wagons Mr Sam Lewis who does a great deal of travling over the county was met and his views are as follows I think the Fiscal Court will make a great mistake if it does not entertain a proposition to make the public high ways better In the winter season they are almost impassable and it would cost but little money to make travel comfortable I want rock crushers purchased and metal put upon the roads I am also in favor of bridges where needed I will cheerfully pay my part of the tax I have seen rock crushers in operation in other counties and I know they do the work satisfac torily If the Court will macadimise our roads the farming class will recieve the greatest benefit Let the work begin as early as possible A short time ago I was in Southern Indiana and took notice of the results of rock crush ers Before they were used a loaded wagon could not be hauled over the roads Now automobiles are flying like a weavers shuttle Mr Jo Coffey who is known to al most every man in Adair County says I have always been in favor of public improvements and I think the roads in this county need attention I would favor a reasonable tax for the purpose of buying machinery to crush rock to ep- 1acedupon the highways I am also in favor of a bridge being built at Neatsvffle friIfrl Prank Sinclair T hearty en

the buds upon the trees are softly swelling Then I wink at Mother Nature and she nods at me and smiles And I look towards the woodlands with their sweet alluring wiles And the dreams of springtime glories all the weary day beguiles While I listened to the tale the birds are telling When the sun is brightly climbing to the top of heavens blue When the hyacinth and crocus shyly push their buds to view When the grass frostbrowned by win ter slowly takes a brighter hue And the languor of the day is oer me stealing Then I wink at Mother Nature and her smile is sweet and gay And I haste to wander idly oer the hills and far away While the glories neverending of the playIthe songbirds notes new melodies revealing When the days are full of music and the nights are pleasant dreams When the sunlight plays and dances on the crystal flowing streams When the suns warm rays are play ing in a myriad golden gleams And old Winter lifts his chill and icy fingers Then I look with eyes of longing on the reel and rod and line And for days upon the river I begin to sigh and pine And I know the golden glories of the wood and field are mine While the echo of the bird songs sweetly linger A

Court Caleb Powers will chargeaof being accessory before the fact to the murder of William Go bellThree times has Mr Powers stood trial on this charge and three times has been convicted in the lower courts and the ver dict set aside by the Court of Ap peals The assassination of Goe bel took place about six years ago In all that time no man with the exception of Henry Youtsey who confessed complicity in the sasination has entered upon asjfinal expiation of his crime can not then be charged truth that any man has been rail roaded into hanging or life im I prisonment for an offence for which every man who had a guilty part in it richly deserves hangingThe Court in its de cision sees fit to criticise the I POWIersthat the basis of their argument innocenceIi llalthough permit the accused freedom on bond shows that the treatment accorded Mr Powers by the courts of Kentucky whether he be innocent or guilty is at least an improvement over what passed as justice in the District of CoII lumbia in the case of Mrs charged with a like offense If wrong has been done him it is not irreparable If he is guilty he has for more than five years fared better than he deserved There are men in Kentucky who may regret that Powers has not been hanged If so they are in the decided minority The great majority of Kentuckians Democrats alike with Republi cans are gladof every opportu nity so far given him his innocence if that be possibleI and desire to give him every other opportunity known to the law The time has long inces passedwhen his execution would have satisfied party rancor or work to partizan advantage or disadvantage The assassination of Goebel has neither been forgot nor forgiven but the bitterness created by it has given place to the purpose of the people of the State that the men guilty of it shall be punished as an act of justice not of re I venge and that all suspected of complicity in it who can prove their innocence can go free Mr Powers in his next trial will enjoy the full advantage that this purpose brings him added to the sentiment of sympathy nat urally awakened by the courage and strength of will that he has exhibited under cir toltheed it will be because of the fact that the passage of time has caused no change in the belief that he is guilty and not because he is a victim of unreason and im petuous hate If he can prove his innocence there will be few to grudge him the happiness of his j liberty Louisville Times School Children Dyspepsia The common form of dyspepsia or indigestion which stops the growth II pales thecneeks weakens the

the Inter state Commerce Commission documentary and other evidence con clusive that the Sugar Trust has been getting rebates from the rail roads These rebates on freight are such that no competitor can secureConvictions under the Inter state Commerce Act will subject the corporations to fines only But upon the facts put in pos session of the Attorney General by Mr Hearst there is every likelihood that the Sherman Anti Trust Act can be brought to bear in which case the penalty of im prisonment will be inflicted upon the conspiritors in restraint of tradeThe spectacle of a few million aire railroad men and trust crim inals in stripes and cowering startling at the aroused American people from behind the barred windows of a jail would be of in finite value in putting a curb up on the conscienceless and insolent piracy which steals the honest name of business wherewith to cloak itself Toward the end toward the high cause of stopping the pillage of the people through degradation of the Nations highways to the service of highway robbers Mr Hearst does his part by filing his complaint and placing his proofs with the Attorney General of the United States It now lies with the Department of Justice and President Roosevelt to bring into court the men of corporations un der accusation and apply to them the law without fear of their over deference to their social position or owe of their wealth Etown News THEORY VS PRACTICE IDuring the College days of Ex Mayor Bessom of Lynn Mass he had two of the college profess ors as guests at a hunting camp in the Maine woods When they entered the camp their attention was attracted by the unusual po sition of the stove which was set on posts about four feet high One of the proffessers began to comment upon the knowledge woodmen gain by observation Now said he this man has discovered that the heat radiat ing from the stove stikes the roof and the circulation is so quickened that the camp is warmed in much less time than would be re quired if the stove was in its reg ular place on the floor The other professor was of the opinion that she stove was elevat ed to be above the window in order that pure air could be had atnightMr being more prac tical contended that the stove was elevated in order that a good supply of green wood could be placed beneath it to dry After considerable argument each man placed a silver dollar on the table and it was agreed that the one whose opinion was nearest the guides reason for elevating the stove should take the pool The guide was called and asked why he had placed the stove in such an unusual position Well said he when I brought the stove up the river I lost most of the stovepipe overboard and had to set the stove up there so as to have the pipe reach through the roof He got the money All great men have their follies which is herWay of say- t r t Iw 3S jK r fot 7Cr9u ing that all have their weak points Dr Johnson with all I his philosophy was not without a

spite of the harmonious andmay it be said inoffensive manner in which he presented his subject the element of surprise was not entirely overcome Nevertheless it is we and our ideals rather than Mr Bryan and his ideals that are mostly at fault It is to our shame that we have allowed the method by which we choose as our national representation the best man or the man who represents or is believed by most of his fellow citizens to reresent the best or most advantageous measures or principles to degenerate so that It seems incongruous to mention politics and religion in the same breathBy soaring above this arbitrary and degrading limitation and obliterating the false lines which have been raised Mr Bryan again showed himself the large man that he is He also showed that he is better than great that he is good and however far astray the American people may sometimes go and however lenient they may at times appear toward those public men who transgress national ideas of decency yet ia the end they may be trusted to see true and cast out him who in his private life is believed to be unworthy of public honor Whether Mr Bryan will ever gain the proud distiction of being elected the first citizen of the United States is a question which no man can now answer But as many of those who heard him last night remarked he has achieved more than that he has made himself worthy of it U To Cure

Entered at the Columbia Postoffice as second 11u1 mail matter WED MARCH 21 i 1906 L The action of the Democratic Committee of the Third Appellate District last week calling a pri bme our nominee and assessing eat thcandidate race does not appeal to us as truly Democratic We have never favored a plan to shut out any worthy aspirant for any position of public trust and honor A primary means that those who seek office must have money and withoutit they can not aspire Such a policy in our judgment is not in accord with Democratic principles A primary may be fair an- exPensive d it may be unfair but it is and carries no more safeguards against frauds tha delegated conventions which are inexpensive and unobstructive to those without a big balance t their credit in bank Year by year the money influence is proving its power in both political parties It is shutting out th man who qualifies without cash We believe in a fair free expression of the people in the most natural way to select their candi dates and also in the rights of every man to seek a position without the loss of a single dol 1 lar Our fears may not Prov correct but the time will come according to our views when th costly methods of a primary will prove disastrous to our party un less they are abondoned The young man who prepares himself for usefulness in the political field of action has but little showing under present action and ten dencies This paper has never favored a high tariff it believes in equal privileges for all and a free fair opportunity for every Democrat whether he has a mil lion or as poor as a church mouse In justice to our member of the committee Mr Gordon Mont- gomerY he voted for a conven lion and his vote was the only one favoring it The Supreme Cort of the Unite States in an opinion

virtually gives Mr Hobson ai open unobstructed path to succeed himself and so far as we pan see believe him entitled to it by merit It is not likely that another aspirant will plank down 200000 to enter a race against Judge Hobson The call from Gov Beckham for an extra session of the Legislature for the purpose of placing a part of the burden of taxation Oil the whisky interest of the State is highly commendable arid marks our chief executive as a man of determination a Governor who has the courage to go r r against a powerful interest whose efforts through lobyists had practically set the bounds of the J t1ii a iti1it3li c0 f TL revenue biland left the rectifiers the beneficiaries of their efforts The call came like a clap of thunder in an unclouded sky to the Legislature just as it was ready to adjourn but there is not a doubt as the Governors position in this matter He is right In the face of such apposition and such powerful influent- Gov Beckham shows a game and patriotic man That this step i for the good of the State and th people at large can notbe disput ed nor doubted The Legislature will doubtless pass a law in accord with tIle Governors wishes ROSA BONHEUR In the M F

great saving of fuel and consequent reduced cost in this direction is a selfevident proposition This is however but one of the benefits resulting from the mild weather Not the least of the benefits has been that it permitted work in the open air most of the time so far in the season resulting in greatly increasing earnings for people of outdoor occupa tion carpenters masons laborers etc The

man that if they secured the timber desired here that they would pay out in this section for timber and labor from 75000 to 100000 annually This would make things lively in a business sense for Columbia and give all who own timber a good market Mr Walker Bryant has been engaged to purchase the above amount of timber and as soon as this is accomplished the machinery will be placed in position

pro multiplied crops of desperate criminals Society looking at the subject from the narrower viewpoint owes it to itself to to give the boys a chance Fro the broader viewpoint of humani it is plainly the duty of every community to save the boys from lives of crime either by delivery- from the surrounding of crime a home or by refusal to consign them to jail with its contamina tionsThe most incorrigible of boys likes the truthtelling the brave the courageous fighting man or boy The American boy is the most pugnacious being on earth Give his pugnacity a turn to right ends and to high aims

stamp the inclination out at once An authority says that this habit will make your eyesight fail long before it ought Natural blinking is essential to clear and moisten the eyes and the average number of natural blinks per minute is about twen ty These are necessary and you do them unconsciously but a nervous blinker will get in something like a couple of hundred per minute in bad cases and the result of this is a big de velopment of the eyelid muscles and a counterirritation that acts on the optic nerve and ren ders the sight daily more weak a id irritableF consists in keeping the eyes shut

ped in the bud last midnight an effort to prevent the House Bill 252 fathered by himself and Representative Mitchell Green and passed by the Assembly from getting over to the execu tive department for approval The bill was properly enrolled and sent to the Assembly for time1wasand Representative from Green hastily enrolled another copy and had it signed before the session closed The bill prohibits the shipping of whisky into local op tion districts There has been more purloining of bills at this session than for many years past and some method will have to be evolved to prevent this being done at fu ture sessions It has gotten so that members after securing the passage of measures have to keep them under their personal supervision until they get through the House as enrolledmeasures and into the hands of the clerks for transmission to the executive department There is some speculation and talk of the present extra session being extended for the purpose of enacting life insurance legis lation One of the bills of great importance which the Democratic Senate Rules Committee allow ed to die in the orders of the day in that body was the Ciller bill requiring an unusual accounting and distribution to policyholders This bill was passed by unani mows vote of the House and its advocates thought the Senate should have been allowed to vote upon it before the session closed Advocates of an appropriation- for a Kentucky display at the Jamestown Va Exposition the bill to provide which was lost in the closing hours of the regular session are feeling good over the call for the extra session They feel that they still have a chance and will call in a body upon the Governor and try to get him to incorporate this matter in a mes sage to the Assembly Of course they do not expect the Governor to do this until it becomes appar ent that the rectifiers tax ques tion will be easily and quickly disposed of and that the session will not be long drawn out with this matter fIf coffee
