their eyes westward and some of them thinking that a for tune is insight are preparing to start for a new country in the near future How many men can you name who have left Adair county for the West and bettered their condition Very few and those who have prospered in a neW State carried enough money with them tobegin business If you have to dig for a living you can do equally as well on a farm in Adair county as you can out West Mr E HJSughes tad Mr J N Coffey returned from an extended trip thrOugh1ecas a portionof Old Mexico and Oklahoma last Saturday afternoop they report thaa the people

painful to me because in him I lost a friend but it is rendered more so when I reflect that I am constituting this paper the bear er of such doleful news to you etc through you to the ears of those who are connected to him by closer ties The only cause his friends and ralatives will have for mourning will be in his death for I do assure you that while living he discharged his duty as an officer and soldier whereby he gained the esteem of I the principal officers in the de tachment and all others with whomhe became acquainted He was attacked violently with the plurisy on last Friday and died in one of the city hos pitals on the evening of the 28th ult On the next day he was de cently buried with the honors of war Attended by Maj Harri son and other officers of grade The Captain went to the hos pital about two weeks ago with the measles and mumps but on the day before the plurisy took him he appeared almost entirely well and talked of returning to camp His summons was short but from the composure and willingness with which he resigned his life we may have some as surance of his prospects of futurity With respects to all friends Yours c ISAAC CALDWELL ovingladdNew Orleans March

devoted to the interests f the city of Columbia and the people of Adair aad adjacent countee Entered at the Columbia Pootoffice as seeond tbuM mail matter WED JULY 25 1906 When we take a view of the past and remember the turbulent times the divisions dissentions and defeats that came to the Democratic party by reason of the over zealous advocates of per 5 sonal choice inTour ranks we wonder why it is that some will f not learn a lesson and profit r thereby True national questions injected into Democratic contests brought about first division and i first defeat and since then the overenthusiastic friends of par ticular aspirants led the party not only to defeat but to the brink of ruin and to the necess ity of resorting to unholy tactics of regaining power Coming from that stage one of the hard est fought battles in the history of the State only gave our cant didates a majority of more than 3000 votes But after reconcili ation had been made and peace Jand union effected in our part we won the next contest by a majority of nearly 30000 Now face of all this experience jinthe fnll knov thebfact that our nominees whoever they may be will need an united party to win in the final contest many of the Democrat ic papers are showing signes of repeating former errors At this stage of the canvass indications point to a spirited contest ifnot one of bitterness and strife If such should result it Bfiay prove as disastrous assim ilar conditions did in the past which did not bring good to our party nor blessings to our State So far as we know there is not j an incompetent man seeking hon ors in our party and not one who would fall short of his duties f to the State when elected That men will have their al choice is but natural and toatl v there is a pleasure in working ffor the success of a particular t friend is also in line with the makeup of man but when ones 7 enthusiasm leads to stirring up- S dissentiqns injecting prejudice 4 and inviting bitterness totadr j personalk f cnoice then his efforts are detri- mentalf to party success The J Democratic press owes the party v and the State its best efforts to notfj be accomplished bwaging a i war on opposition candidates J The time for entering has not yet closed and it seems a little premature toRbegin a vigorous ycampaign When the entries iEare all in and the real show be 7 gins then

Bavara He is a King and a prisoner Most Kings are prisoners for if they are not surrounded by walls they are by conventions and court rules and precedent And this King is insane and intermarriage of the royal fami lies of Europe is tainting tlie blood of Kings and Queens until it is possible that some day half the globe will be ruled by men and women not possessed of their five sences King fiftyninthIyear He has lived under re straint for thirtythree years as a lunatic He lives in a beautiful castle and is surrounded by a princely suite He is big and wonderfully strong and at times violent He has few lucid intervals The castle grounds are surrounded by guards And now to find just what a King really amounts to With a crazy King on the throne it is necessary to appoint a business man to run things Prince Luitpold has the job and Bavara has prospred and grown has been a country to live and at peace with her neighbors There are folks who think that the land has not suffered because of a rulers long confinement in a manhouseEvery while the early death of King Otto is prophesied The fact remains that he is in good health and bids fair to live many years as useless as the general run of Kings They are only men after all you know Dont envy them Youve got the best of it by long odds May Live I 00 Years The chances for living a full century are excellent in the case of

SOME MISTAKES If an editor makes a mistake he has to apologize for it but if a doctor makes it he buries it If the editor makes one there is a lawsuit swearing and the smell of sulphur but if the doctor makes one there is a funeral cut flowers and the smell of varnish A doctor can use aword a yard long without knowing what it means but if the editor uses it he has to spell it If a doctor goes to see anothers mans wife he gets a charge of buckshot When a doctar gets drunk its a case of overcome by heat arid if lie dies it is heart trouble When the editor gets drunk its a case of top much

at the last session of the Adair County Teachers Institute At the request of the teachers Dr Taylor delivered it io the office for publication r Ladies and Gentlemen of the Zr t J r j tIj I r i jJ f Lf Teachers Institute J One year ago I made some remarks to the Institute in which I told the teachers of the county that I contemplatedvisiting all the schools of thecounty in the inter est of the public healthI proposed to make war on promiscious spitting and other filthy habits 11expectedaround So far as I was competent to judge I found the teach ers generally doing their duty As a rule I found the school houses clean and the pupils un der good control Some of the houses were surrounded by high weeds which I recommended to have cut but in some instances this was not done I foundvery few instances where spitting on the floor was permitted One house was without any good wa ter and I recommended to the late superintendent to have a well put there but it was not done but I was very much astonished to find so few pupils in attendance In my remarks here a year ago I told the teachers that r would come upon them like sTthief in the night unext pected visited schools in all parts r the county in the begin ningy middle or near the end of thesessionsI visited fiftyfive schools and kept a record of the number found in attendance as well as the number absent Jnthe fiftyfive schools I found present 1327 or an average at tendance of 24 In the same districts I found absent 1881 or- an average of 34 so that you can see that not nearly onehalf were in attendance I found 39 with not half and 12 with ndf onethird and only three that had as many as twothirds In the schools visited fortyeight were white and seven colored I stumbled on only three trus tees Now I do not blame the teachers for this condition of things There is in my opinion something radically wrong inthe common school system The State has made what seems to be ample provision for the wants of the schools Teachers in abun aan e have Qualified f themselves to teach The voters of this county have elected a competent superintendent buttA allthis ambuBtsto nothing if the children are hot sent to the r schools r Qufrpeople are coripelled to pay taJ sto maintain the school sys f tern tokeep up the roads topa the school superintendent and in aseof war our young men are compelled to bear arms i and risk theh lives in defenses oi heir coutitry Ignorance isJa fruitful source of crime and we paylarge taxes to support our criminal courts now what is the solution of this whole business f In my opinion it is in a rigid in flexible compulsory school Jaw We have a ompulsory schooLlaw now but ft is neither rigid nor inflexible There are men living within Onehalf mile of the school house with houses full of chil dren and men who pay not oneS cent of school tax and children are never seen at school If the parents regard so little the welfare of their c pldren the strong arm tth law hould
