statements too close to present conditions while we believe in showing the brightest future that may reasonably Qe expected for Columbia warranted by the recent past arid real ized under our present

developing the great and va ried natural products of this part of the State The projected line froma point onthe Cincinnati Southern Bur gin or Danville to the coal fields and valuable forests South of the Cumber land has not been abandoned by its promoters and its consideration and progress by outside capitalists is being advancedin a most encouraging way to all familiar with the real merits of the proposition While this road is not a certainty yet it is within reasonable limits of expectation Aside from this the reports from various points indicate that at last the road from Scottsville to Stanford will be built and that the near future will become the active period fn opening up n developing this country With eitherv t line of road Columbia would as readily respond to the great opening of the country as a rubber ball against a wall In the failure of either her growth inSet steadily continue and values advance to at reasonable degree In view of the past and present and fac ing the

are hard to protect from lice largely on account of the number of fowls that must be kept by any one man who ex beets to make much money out of them If a 1000 pound steer or horse has lice the treatment Of that animal for the parasites is not a great task but it is far different if 1000 pounds of chick ens have to be treated That might mean as many as 200 fowls to be washed dipped or other wise handled and cared for There are several ways of kill ing lice but the most thorough n way is to wash the fowl with soap and water A poultry exhibitor said to the writer If the man that has lousy hens will wash them as the showman does his birds he will have no trouble YY- With lice provided he does not again permit them to come in contact with other birds that are lousy His method of washing was to make a strong lather of soap and water and scrub the birds thoroughly The lather was worked into the feathers and under all of them and was again and again washed off This kind of treatment gets rid of the lice and leaves the birds absolutely clean The next best thing in the opinion of the Farmers Review is perhaps grease put under the wings under the tail feathers and on top of the head Sooner or later the lice on the hen will take refuge in the places men tioned and will become covered with grease which will in turn cause the stoppage of the breath ing pores of the insects and hence stangulation This is the cur rent opinion but whether all the lice do thus commit suicide is a question that is hard to settle Certain it is that the application 1of grease does greatly reduce the number of lice infesting the fowls Kural World SORE SHOULDERS It is cruel to worka horse thatj has a sore shoulder Yet we see many a horse pulling against a raw shoulder Too little attention is paid to the fit of the collar The hired men often sling on any collar that is handy whether it was bought for that particular horse ornotThe collar should fitbe just right in length and shape If r worn by the same horse all the- time it will shape itself to the neck But nothing can overcome awrong size It must be snug but not tight free but not too loose The hames must l e adjustedl right If the top strap istoo tight the neck is pinched and the tugs raised too ibigh If the top strap is too f Ipng the tightening of the hame strap below causes a bad fit and may throw the pulling joint of tugs too

mane out from under the collar Bathe the shoulders fre quently to keep the skin free from salty irritating sweat Do as you would be done bySuccessful farming MARKETING AND PROFITS The largest profits must come fro m superior marketing and from special market advantages in selling eggs and stock A difference of only a few cents a dozen makes a large increase in the income when several hun dred fowls are kept For example the average highest market price per year for eggs in New York City is about twentyone cents per dozen A certain poultryman who has 1000 hens sold his eggs last year for an average of seven cents a dozen above the highest mar ket Assuming that he sold from each fowl ten dozen eggs per year which is a fair but not a high average we find that at seven cents per dozen he receiv ed seventy cents per hen over and above what he would have received if he had sold the eggs at the highest wholesale quota tion Therefore from his 1000 hens he received the very corn fortable sum of 700 This was all clear profit due entirely to good business methods neat crates careful grading of eggs cleanliness quality of products and regularity of shipments throughout the year James E Rice Cornell StationD- IFFERENTLY EXPRESSED Two groups of people were seated in the waitingroom of a railroad station One consisted of a young man and two young ladies dressed in the height of fashion the other a man and his wife not so fashionably attired They had been there only a few minutes when a girl came in whose complexion was as nearly perfect as anything in this world ever is- While she was buying her ticket the young man remarked to the ladies with him Isnt Miss Cransford a beau ty her complexion is as perfectas a rose At the same time the other man clutched his wifes arm and whisperedLord Nan hasnt that gal got purty hide Lippincotts Magazine TO KEEP OFF HAWKS A Massachuetts correspondent of the Rural New Yorker gives the following advice on how to keep hawks away from chicken yardsIn the first place my chicken yard is fenced with poultry net ting small mesh at bottom large mesh at top Lenghwise of the field I run wires telegraph wire or wire half as large1n high posts tell feet above the ground and about thirty feet apart Across these wires I stretch com mon twine such as is used for lining corn fields Just how fre quently these lines stretch across the wires I do not know but last season niine were not more than four or five feet apart Pthjnk a r i ysMfy iJ these lines should cover the en tire field to the outermost edge This costs something a small sum of money for material some labor and considerable time but it is a satisfaction to let ones chicks out and feel that they are safe I never saw a hawk in my chicken yard last season after the lines were put up Put up the posts and wires substantially and they will remain several years The twine will need renewing every season although with care taking down and roll ing it up in the fall it might be made to do duty two seasons I also hang upon the wire some strips of colored cloth and some shiny pieces of tin Shiny bottles suspended also are good QUESTION ANSWERED The question was asked in the columns of your paper how many times the word children was used in the Bible Several things conspired to cause a delay in answering said question Lest I might seem to pose as an adept pr expert in Bible matters I say I stand for correctionI compound word men children appears twice and womenchild once It seems that the book of Numbers leads in the number of the word chil dren while several of the books of the Bible did not mention the word refered to Nahum it seems just did save his skirts as he only gave utterance to said word once I find that in one verse the word children appears eight times You will bear in mind that the word children is in some Bibles a great many more times than in others I find the word children used in the Bible 1905 times If you will indulge me I would like to ask the Uptodate Bible stu dent a question of some im portance It seems that Paul had a scrap with some of his followers because they claimed that the resurrection had been already and in consequence thereof he turned them over to Satan to receive their reward Their is nothing plainer to me in the Bible than that there has been two resurrections How does this harmonize with the gentleman above refered to I further claim that the Bible tells plainly of people being created beformed or built and that he was not comprehended when God looked up and saw that the heaven and earth and the host therein were complete It might have beena thousand years after said completion before Adam was formed Where is the word wench in the Bible For fear my letter will meet that conven rent receptacle

while so far away from home I land ed in Portal N D May 31fc and put up at Grand View Hotel until my brother came af ter me next day and then we had to drive 55 miles to a little post office called Loweton just across the line into Canada where my brother had homesteaded after renting his farm in Dakota I havefound this country in the Northwest far ahead of my ex pectations It seems to be a great country for small grain such as wheat oats flax etc It was quite a show to me to see the farmers running their gang plows with eight horses abreast breaking the raw prairie sod I can look out and see green fields of wheat running for miles and miles just as green as can be and the soil seems to be just as rich and fertile as our best river bottoms in Russell county I was told by some farmers in this section they make 30 bush els of wheat and from 50 to 75 bushels oats per acre lam sat isfied they certainly raise good feed of some kind for I never bigIcoming to this part of the world and by the way everything seems to be in a rush and emigrants are coming in this neighborhood from all parts of the compass and they all seem to be good healthy men and women and in truth good

twentytwo years ago when I left the farm on Russell creek near Columbia I came to north Missouri after coming to Missouri I settled in Bevier a mining town of 4 or 5 thousand inhabitants after living there for ten years I purchased and moved to a farm northwest of Callao Macon connty near the Chari ton river A portion of my farm is on the Chariton bottom Generally north Missouri is a stock county most all kinds of stock being raised extensively including horses mules cattle sheep and hogs Land sells at from 25 to 50 per acre owing to location and improvements It will produce from one to two tons of timothy clover and hay per acre The yield of corn is from 50 to 60 bushels per acre Wheat and oats are also profita bly grown On account of the continued dry weather in the early Sum mer the hay crop will be short Oats will be light this season Wheat crop is good also fine prospect for corn We have a heavy crop of peaches and the apple crop is above the average In conclusion will say to my friends in Old Adair County I would like the best kind to have met with you but I hope to live so that some day when I am done with the battles of life I will be able to meet you in a reunion where there will be no parting Your friend A WATSON ROSE FARM OF TWELVE ACRES One of the most interesting sights in the Pomona valley is the development work now being done by the California Rose cohv pany on its rose farm at the foot of White avenue Here may beI seen literally acres of roses the slips being planted a few weeks ago covering the entire twelve acre tract in rows about three feet apart The plants are about six inches in height and here and there over the tract many of them are in bloom It will be a beautiful sight when the rose bushes are grown to two or three feet in height all in bloom 8 The work of irrigating and tending the plants at this time of year requires about twentyfive men From December until April during the shipping sea son probably fifty to seventyfive people will be kept busy At this season the young plants are being pushed as rapidly as tenders care good soil the available amount of sunshine and constant t irrigating will accomplish it Pomona Times JAMES

people of Adair Mil adjacent counties Entered at the Columbia Poatoffice as second tiaH mail matter- WED JULY 11 1906 The greatest proposition befoie the people of this section of the country is the making and maintaining of good roads and there is not a progressive section in the entire county but is wrestl ing more or less with the same momentous question The fact is that it is of so much importance so closely allied with the full development of our country and reaches out to the doors of the very bone and sinews of the land that the shaping of and en tering into some system of sub stantial road building can not longer be delayed by the people of this part of the State without seriously impairing our future development and advancing val ues The Fiscal Court made a levy last April of 20 cents to the 100 valuation for the purpose of making a few miles of pike road but up to date no plan has been outlined and no road built with hat appr prationNot in the capacity of an adviser are we in i lined to speak butas an interest v ed citizen of this county we insist that delay is dangerons Day by day the season for building roads is rapidly passing and unless the court takes some action within a few weeks the coming winter v will be on us again with the same void mud holes throughout the county and the people discouraged rather than encouraged The T proper expenditure of the levy 1made would probably build 5 or I 6 miles of firstclass road and would prepare the people tor a ulland hearty endorsement of their action Again if the coun 5tty would inaugerate a system of making good roads it would give- encouragement to other agencies for aiding in the work and with r in a few years we would not only be enjoying good roads but shar Cing in increased prosperity and advancing land values But if iour county is to stick to old con ditions and drag along behind the progressive spirit of this age we may expect vto lose a large per cent of our most progressive young men Enterprise ambition and ability will not choose mud y4flior remain in a nonprojjressive community when the broad field- of activity is open and inviting In many counties of the State the v building of pike roads has steadi ly been persued several years jf and their success should be in spiringto us Washington coun Sty a few miles north of us has C made a good showing and

the people are anxious and ready to inau gerate a system of building sub stantial roads we outlined in its April term will be speedily put into execution Gentlemen of the court why not have a call

friends have fol lowed my fortune in the past and it has been my earnest and honest endeavor to show my appreciation of their devotion by so conducting the affairs of my office as to merit the confidence reposed in me As to whether or not J have honestly conscientiously and ef ficiently discharged my duty as a public servant I leave to the impartial judgment of fair mind ed Kentuckians If my official services have not met the requirements of an exacting but just public if in my official capacity I have willfully or flagrantly failed to guard and protect the interests of the public then I do not deserve the favorable con sideration of the Democrats of the State if however mysix and onehalf years services as an officer and as a member of the various official boards and commissions have proven satisfacto ry to the people thenthe experi J enc I have derived from all the branches of the executive de partment of government by reason of such services should commend itself as an
