Washington was born in West Moreland county Virginia February 22 1732 When Washington was a little boy he went to school to a man named Hobby and learned to read write and spell He was very bright and always had his lessons up After school he would drill the boys for he loved to play soldier He couid run very swiftly and could jump very far and ride any horse he ever saw He always told the truth and when the boys would have quarrels they would come to George to settle it When George was sixteen 16 years old he went to surveyfor a man named Fairfax This was a very rough way to make a liv ing but he made from twentyone 21 to twentyseven 27 dollars day but this was very good for George because he learned to be a soldier Sometimes he would sleep out under the open sky on some straw and one night the straw caugh- on fire and he would have burne- but a man awakened him When Washington was nine teen years old he was sent to the French with the message that ansd that they had better get off He had to go over mountains It was rough and a very dangerous trip rightsWashington was a general in the French and Indian War and if Braddock had paid attention to him he would not have been woundedDuring the Revolutionary War Washington was general of every Colony and the soldiers did every thing he wanted them to do When the war was over he was President two terms which everyone wanted

REMEMBER Surfeit is the foe of serenity Love is the heart seeking to elp There is nothing diviae in dullness No man can see with his eyes alone Sulkiness is only selfishness turned sour- Resentment bears heavy fruit ofregret Gilding the wagon does not ease the springs Many great souls have been lost by little sins- Opportunity is only the obverse ofobligation Consideration for others is the noblest courtesy Blessed is the sorrow that cures selfishness The religion that lacks sunshine is all moonshine The path to perdition is lubri cated with smooth talk The best place to pray for corn is between the rows He who is a friend only toy himself is a foe to all men Frozen faith is effective only in freezing the faithful There is a lot of difference between foresight and fear Believe that a man is bad and he will not itbThe heavenly chariot cannot be drawn by a clothes horse The reward of mastering one difficulty is to meet another Many a man will wear wings who cannot tie an Ascot tie Men who spend their time knocking never open any doors The things of life are likely to get in the way of life itself At times of revival it is easy to mistake racket for results If you cannot see heaven here you will never see it anywhere To the hypocrite one mans re ligion is another mans revenue Godnever calls a man to com mand until he has learned to obey Most men are made by their enemies and marred by them selves windowsdup pulpit No man wanders more easily than he who watches only anoth ers ways It is always a pleasure to the average man to boost another sinner down ROWENA Steamboats

ses sion and the many pulses that beat to the tune of advancement and progress will be in suspense until that body has outlined a pokeythat will lead to better con ditiohs in this county The two overshadowing questions now be forejt e court and the two most interestallin the two that will add more to the growth and prestige of Adair county are roads and bridges We can not state neither can we foreshadow the action of the court on either or both of these questions for we do not know but to the point we wish to state that never before in the history of tljiis county has there been a- more j real desire for good roads and more bridges This paper has i contained from one to two columns of interviews each week from January 1st to date bear ing on the aforesaid questions and with but few exceptions every citizen has not only ex pressed a desire for such improve 4menu but urgently demanded that a move for good stone roads be inaugurated The prevailing sentiment is for the purchase of a stone crusher and its use eco nomtally applied It is our judgment that a crusher should be purchased and where ever the people will aid the county in mak ing the road there put it to work Beyond a doubt our roads are in at fearful condition and some line of action that will result in making macadam roads should be instituted The heavy tax pay ers aVe ready and demanding that something be done and if the Court ever intends leading out on progressive lines now is the most opportune time We trust that these important questions will not be lightly considered andt that the Court will start a work that will result in great good to the county The Spectator last week cred ited Mr M Rey Yarberry with keeping Adair county in the Eleventh Congressional district Mr Yarberry has done many things

BR1DG Mr B F Rakestraw of Campbells yule who has seen rock crushers in operation says Adair county could not do a more profitable thing than to purchase them He further stated that if good metal roads were made all over the county the value in farms would increase 50 per cent A great mistake will be made if the county fails to purchase the crushers Mr S H Mitchell a former jailer of Adair county was in Columbia a few days ago and jn responce to the ques tion how do you stand on the road proposition said I am in favor of making better roads and I want to see a bridge built at Neatsville The peo pie in the Green river section are en titled to consideration and the building of said bridge should be no longer delayed I am perfectly willing to pay my part of the tax for the necessary improvements 4 Mr T R Stults County Court Clerk says I want to be in the procession hence you can put me down for better roads and for more bridges where they are needed I believe that if good roads are made throughout the county the farmers would be greatly benefited for the reason they would have seasons of the year an easy way o getting to market and could haul much more produce There is not a doubtIbut these improvements made I ain perfectly willing to pay m part of the tax Mr L J Wilkerson of Glensfork states that he is in favor of better roads and that he believes that stone should follow the work of the grader If the people will furnish the rock an spread it after the crusher has done its work I would heartily endorse the p chase and use of a crusher by our Fiscal Court I do not believe that th county should do the entire work but the community in which its use is need ed ought to do a fair part and in this way more roads could be built I be weIand get our roads so they can be used in the winter time The money and tune in making substantial im jprovements will bring rewards to the county and those who may oppose such course will drop into line when they see and realize the ture value of rock roads Put me down for improvements v I Mr R A Corbin of Casey Creek was in town Wednesday and stated I bridgeee tax yet I believe we ought to make good substantial roads

highways I also favor the building of bridges where they are ac tually needed For these improvements I am willing to pay my part of the tax Mr R R Conover one of our best farmers says It would be a great blessing if Adair county could make a deal whereby the roads could be substantially benefited I never saw a crusher in operation but if it is the machine necessay I want the Fiscal Court to make

and some of them not enter ed the Hamilton county jail at Chattanooga Tenn Monday night laid violent hands on the negro rapist Ed Johnson car red him to the county bridge over the Tennessee river and there shot him to death after failing to hang him He was tried in the criminal court of Hamilton county Tenn essee and convicted of the crime with which he was charged t There was not a scintilla of doubt in the minds of the juryI that he was guilty He had able counsel to defend him was given every opportunity to establish his innocence and he failed His attorneys examined the record carefully other lawyers were called in as advisory counsel and together they examined the record Their unanimous verdict was that the negro had been fairly tried and that an appeal- to the Supreme Court of the State was useless They com muicated their conclusion to the negroahd he expressed as satisfied with the trial He waived his right of appeal and expressed his readiness to meet his fate Following this action a couple of colored lawyers took up the case at the request they assert of the family of the man By filing a petition with the judge of the Federal Court of that dis trict for a writ of habeas corpus the case was trasferred from the State to the Federal Courts Judge Clark dismissed the application for the writ of habeas corpus Then an appeal was taken to the Supreme Court of the United States Monday that court granted an appeal and the mob followed Nervous School Children Statistics gathered by various School Boards show that a large percentage of schoolchildren suffer from t forms

been in favor of public improvements I have conversed with a goodly number of citizens in and around Roley and as far as Neatsville and you cannot find a man in favor of rock crushers and the fact is simply this we dont need any as we have plenty of gray e1 Some say you cannot make a permanent road out of gravel but that is a sad mistake If you will put on enough gravel you can have as fine a road and as lasting a road as you need to want The above is by request i will now give my individual notion about matters The county records will show that while Jserved as Magistrate of District No 1 instead of abetter that- my vote was cast for every bridge that has been built in the county and will further say that Iam in favor of the Fiscal Court taking up the question at its present term and

MAR 25 1906 Editor News As this is my firat communica tion to my old home paper this year I wish to congratulate the readers and correspondents of the Newsand to thank God that I am living and able to write one more letter Of course it is useless for me to say that I am not in the habit of writing letters to papers but as I sit down to do some corres bonding I remember that I am in the same place that I was when I wrote a letter to the News last Summer So I concluded that I would write again and by so doing let the people of Columbia know where one of their wandering boys is to night I have been to church and heard a minister who is doing more good to build up the State of Indiana than almost any other man and he is being compli mented by every large paper in the State He goes after the lawless and it is easy to see that he is bettering the morals of Ter- re Haute It is to be regretted that there are not more like him Columbia Ky has always been a law abiding place and it is ai great pleasure to me to boast that my home is in that town and that peace and quietude reigns It is a true saying As the twig is bent so the tree is inclinedWhile church the congrega tion sang that old hymn How tedious and tasteless the hours etc and that old song anybody can appreciate who was reared in Adair county and attended church at old Tabor and while helping to sing the song my mind wandered back to my childhood days the days that were too sweet to last and as the song went on my imagination ran so high that I could see some of the faces and hear some of the voices that sang at old Tabor and such thoughts are next to angelic scenes and I almost broke down and could hardly finish the song the memory of these old scenes being so dear to me There is no picture so pretty no poetry so sweet that will compare in gran dure to my childhood play ground There the Sun shines brighter the wind is softer the birds sing sweeter Summer shade is cooler Winter snow is warmer Friendship is stonger and maiden hearts are truer than any where else- I am proud that I had the mor al courage to move back to my old county and to once more call Columbia my home henceforth and forever I am no longer with the R J Darnell Lumber Company 1 had a chance to better myself and took advantage of it I now travel for the Heath Whitlock Co Chicago and will start West the first of April While I am a salesman I am also manager of the West Coast product I will make trips to the coast three times a year If any of my friends should meet me in my travels I will do my best to enter thin them With best

looks flourishing fruit trees are in full bloom the peach orchards are in deed beautiful clothed in their coat of pink and white with the snow white bloom of pear plum and apricot The green wheat fields are very promising Corn is up and will soon be large enough to plow Will not plant cotton for some time as it comes very quickly and if cool weather comes on it takes sore shin and dies Cotton is the money crop here and is a good one as one man can manage so much It is a clean nice work through the entire season and as long as the farmer can get 10 cents for his cotton crop he can live like a lord I would like to note right here this country has undergone quite yearsTencowboy was heard in the val leys now occupied by the whistling plowboy and the poor cow boy has had to retire to the Plains or the Pecos river country Farming is the paramount issue and everybody wanting to farm Agriculture is progressing rapidly nothing but the latest im proved machinery is used hence work is more delightful than if followinfi an old jumping colter on a steep hillside- I will speak a few words for the Athens of the West Brownwood She is located upon the Pecan Bayou and is near the geographical
