THE FISCAL COURT p Valuable Improvements Outlined and the County Enters a J New Era GOOD SOLID ROADS WILL BE BUILT il The Fiscal Court adjourned last Fri day afternoon after being in sessio from Tuesday morning and from start to finish so far as we were able to observe did its duty in a fair square ma ner meeting every proposition that came before it in a manner well befi ing competent men who have the goo of the county at heart As is usual the many claims for aiding the r working roads etcwere presented a allowed after finding same to be jus In matters affecting the future welfare of the county some important ste were taken but taken cautiously discreetly The advocates of good roads are feeling jubilant since the court gave an evening to the citizens to express their views and to aid in devel oping a plan by which to accomplish the building of macadam roads After due deliberation a levy of 20 cents was made for this purpose and which means that at least a few miles of road will be built this year the plan yet to t determined The court also decided buy a farm for the purpose of keeping all county charges for less money to the county and more comfort to the unfortunates In this as in the move fo stone roads we believe an important step has been taken The levy for ordinary county expenses including a su to be invested in buying a farm an erecting buildings foots up 26 cents on the 100 A committee to find a suitable farm and one to inquire into the best methods of road making was a pointed and will be in position to report in a few weeks The sum total now be given by us but with no discre- courtsit to former of this kind we Re lieve that the present set of Magistrates and entire membership of the court combined has given more evidence o progress than aiy similar body that ever convened in Adair county The entire makeup are men of good judgment and their start shows them in touc with the progressive spirit of our times This paper is in full accord with th plans and actions of the court an stands ready to aid in the good won k outlined and undertaken In this issue Coffey Bros advertise their fine horse Lincoln Squirrel an your attention is directed to it if in any way interested in raising high class horses His pedigree shows him to be equal to the best in the entire state and as an individual he can be seen in their stable any day Coffey Bros are too well known throughout thi country to need comment or recommendation from us for in all their experi ence they have dealt strictly on the square and have handled only sucha stock as could be well patronized in any section In the makeup and breedin- of Lincoln Squirrel they are convinced tHat they never had his equal and in view of this they solicit the patronag- of their many friends who desire to raise good horses Read the advertise ment Mr C H Murrell a representative of this paper was in Monticello Burn side Somerset and Liberty last week At Monticello he found business fairly good though but little work was doing in the oil fields on account of we weather There is much talk in Monti cello of a railroad striking the town and the people have a great deal of faith in the project

aniversary of leaving her old home in Kentucky Tuesday night at 10 oclock one of the purest and best women it has ever been our lot to know answered the summons from the better world and closed her eyes forever upon earth and its sorrows Mrs A B Dailey the subject of this sketch stands out in the writers mind as the embodiment of all that is best in human kind and from knowing her we can build for hu manity a higher ideal and almost trace tosgolden gates Hers was in deed a sunny nature and it lighted up every life with which it came in contact with sunnier smiles and bade the givehGenerally speaking we are not given to eulogies of the dead but we do not feel that we can allow a life so pure in purpose and so gentle to close with out pointing it out to the living as a type of the possible that all may erect more altruistic ideals of Gods creat ures She was a woman of frail body but strong mentality and a heart that thought no evil of anyone She was tone of our countrys pioneers moving to this section when a child and living within the limits of our little city for nearly half a century A pioneer she shared all the pioneers hardships she lived through troublous times and per haps her heart was pierced as frequent ly and as cruelly by the darts of sor row as any that ever met the vicissitudes of life But in spite of sorrows in spite of pain which was a constant guest she was ever an angel ofmercy and gladness to others and for the gall of bitterness the earth so often gave to ofejoyA near neighbor for many years it beautidion and deed it seemed to us that we could discern the touch of the divine We never knew her to speak ill of any person and judging her by deeds and wedunkindly feeling toward any one And such a sympathetic nature we have never found in any other Well does this writer remember when for many weary weeks he looked upon this earth only as a fading shadow counting all of life behind and only a few weeks at best beforewhen poverty pointed with bony finger to the almshouse or charitywhen pain and despair brooded over his waking hours and disturbed his sleepwell does he remember the sympathy encouragement and hope from this angel of mercy who minis tered in word and deed Much should be written of this no ble good waman but an abler pen than ours must pay tribute to her beautiful unselfish life At the age of 70 she fell asleep and earth was robbed of her pure spirit that heavens world of love might be enriched There are sorrows and tearstains here because she is no more there is rejoicing in heaven because she has entered into the rest pre pared for gentle Spirits like her own And who but God can value such a- lifea life of sunshine of mercy faith peace hope and love Who has given so much to the world as this good wom an who suffered all her own sorrows and pains in silence that she might wipe away the tears of others and car ry balm to wounded hearts UNo radient pearl that crested fortune wears No gem that twinkling

LIBEL t If the laws governing words or charges which are put in writ ing should be made applicable to words spoken there would be few men and women who would escape the pains of the law But the statutes are diverse on the subject and the question What is libel is the pertinent and interesting question It is reasonable and sound to define libel as a written or printed statement designed to do injury to some person and publishedwith malicious intent for malice is the essential element of libel Libel is the one thing the rep utable newspaper seeks to avoid for the publisher of that class of newspypers not alone appreciates the public support he receives but is careful of the reputation and the character of the individ ual units making up the sum to tal of the community in which he publishes his paper There can be no malice in a mistake Neither can there be malice on the part of a newspa per in the publication of the news if of public interest to a community provided the usual and the ordinary means of ver ification are employed in the in vestigation of the itemand yet as in remarks made by individ cols the reputable newspaper sometimes is imposed upon or is mistaken but there has never yet been an instance where the reputable citizen or the reputa ble newspaper has not hastened to make all due reparation possi ble and to place the parties af fected in their proper light be fore the community and in a manner as public and conspic uous as was given to the item containing the mistake It is not given to this man to go through this life without mis takes accompanying his walk neither is it possible for the newspaper to go through its ca reer without falling into error at times but the errors are always regretable and haste is always made to do that which the cir cumstances of the case require Of course that sort of ac knowledgement fails to suit the damage suit lawyer or the ambu lance chaser but it ist a course which commends itself to a dis criminating community and al ways will Owensboro Messenger A FAIR COUNT In an interview at Washington Senator James McCreary says he is confident of reelection whether Gov Beckham is a candidate

Quarantine Bill by an overwhelming majorityof the House is re garded as a personal victory for John Sharpe Williams It is more than that it is in a double sense a victory for the South first in the establishment of the fact that the South has come to rec ognize that it is a part of the National Government and as such is entitled to her share in the benefits of the National Gov ernment and second in the ma terial and immediate advantage that will cot South if the bill passes the Senate and be comes law The Williams Bill is the product of the Southern Quarantine and Immigration coference held in Chattanooga in November It was Williams who brought an end to the interState jealousies of Louisiana and Mississippi and put a finish on the talk about State rights which had as its object the cutting off of the Southern States from their actual rights for fear that their imaginary rights would be assailed If the law goes into effect itI will save the South thousands in commerce and scores of lives It will put an end to the disgrace brought by demagogues who seek the critical occasion of epi demic peril to exploit themselves at the threatened peril of their own and their sister States and it will mean that the South has got back in the Union for the good of the South and the Union It is a bill that should pass Louisville Times Young man one of the worst things you can do is to

Railroad Company encourages the hope if not the belief that the road will be built Since the project was first suggested the citizens of Danville have given the questions me thought and now realize that the construction of the road would be of great benefit to this community Danville import ance as a railroad center would be a very much enhanced by the entrance of the new road It would thus be the terminus of the Danville and Scottsville rail road a terminal of the Southern Railway in Kentucky and one of the principal statious on the Cin ccinnati Southern As a junction point it would be the most im Cincinnatimean a vast increase in the amount of business done at Dan ville in freight and passenger transfers the erection of rail roads hops and the employment of a large force of men These employes and their families would swell our population and the merchants and the entire community would profit by this growth The construction of the proposed road would make Dan yule a Competitive point thus enabling it to secure the lowest freihtraters With low fi ignt rates and an inviting field for blineiSwno1es houses wouldJ L ii r cr 2 rJ1t spring up and Danville would I soon be the
