w L RIG r y gy1 1IC l r LEFT TOE CHILD An occurence wraptedin mystery has put the whole Dunnville country to its wits and it looks like the mystery will remain in darkness The story which is perfectly reliable is as follows Last Thursday night Mr B F Rake straw the wellknown lumber dealer of Campbellsville and a high gentle man was stopping at the Combest Hotel in Dunnville and from him this information is gathered About the midnight hour there was a knock at the hotel door Mr Combest asked the occasion of it and was told that it andwasremain over night Mr Combest got up opened the door and instantly a woman brushed by him laid a bundle on the table and without speaking hur ried out Mr Combest examined the package and found that it contained a live child A physician was summoned who stated that the infant was not more than three hours old It was cared for until morning then turned over to the Judge of the Caesy county Court The people of Dunnville say they have not the least conception as to who the mother of the child is BEN F HUNTER DEAD Mr Ben F Hunter who left this county thirteen years ago going to Texas but shortly returned to Ken tucky locating at Bradfordsville in Marirn county died in Hendersonville N C Friday morning He was a vic tim of pulmonary trouble and had been an invalid for more than a year He was about thirtysix years old and be fore his health failed was an active business man He was a brother of Messrs J J and Josiah Hunter of Gradyville and the latter was with him when the end came The deceased leaves a wife who is a daughter of Mr J C Yates and three children The interment was a Bardfordsville last Saturday many relatives and friends being present Consumption is a flattering disease victims of it generally believeing that they will recover One week before the death of Mr Hunter he left Brad fordsville forHendersonville N C be lieving that the climate and water in that locality would benefit him Our sympathy is extended to the wife children brothers and friends tLast Thursday morning iiffeport was spread over this community that Mr Henry M Kemp of Columbia but who has been employed as bookkeeper at an Athertonville distillery for several years was dangerously illand that friends were accompaning him to this place This intelligence brought sor row to the whole town and greatly alarmed Mr Kemps immediate family Mr Geo A Kemp father of the young man quickly called up Atherton ville and was answered by his son who stated that he was at his desk and in his usual health This of course was a great relief The occasion of the re port is thought to be this Some days ago Mr Kemp was violently attacked with flux and was seriously ill At that time he was contemplating coming home A friend who lives several miles from Athertonville and knowing of Henrys condition and the proposed trip home wrote to a friend here stating that he was dangerouly ill and asked if he had reached Columbia We are truely glad that the report was unfounded and hope that Henry will visit his old home at an early day Mrs May Harvey who is recognized- as one of the best teachers in Adair cOWltyopendschool in the East Co lumbia precinct with flattering pros pects The attendance at this time is much larger than usual evincing that the teacher is highly appreciated by parents and pupils as an instructor Mrs Harvey takes a j

city gave an informal reception last night in their hall in the Masonic Tem ple in honor of the Hon James Gar nett of Columbia Grand Master of Kentucky who has been the guest of relatives here this week About sixty guests were present including the wives and daughters of many of the members of the lodge A mock session of the lodge was held which afforded great amusement to the visitors Short impromptu speeches were made by some of the leading members The principal address of the evening was made by Grand Master Garnett who captivated his hearers by his eloquence Light refreshments were served and the occasion was greatlj enjoyed bv all The full damage done by the heavy rain of a few days ago is hard to esti mate but to say the least of it the section in its main path never had such a downpour The hillsides overwashed as never known before crops in the bottoms were swept away and much fencing disappeared We are informed that Mr Henry Hensons loss on his Green river farm is near 500 On a small creekthat empties into the river Butlersacreek all the crops fencing and many other things were washed away Clem Barnetts Kitchen and smokehouse with all their contents were destroy ed by the flood Chickens and turkeys were nearly all destroyed A mill be longing to Mart Corbin on Snake creek went with the tide Nearly ev ery person in the Green river section of the county sustained considerable loss Those whose loss was greatest and most acute are being helped by their neigh bors who are rebuilding fences and giving other aid The fact is that calamity has driven the people back to their old brotherly way of doing Sundday night was on covertness and he brought out a number of strong points against hording up for self As we understood him doing something for your fellow man without material inconvenience to self was a greater pass port to the celestial city than laying up riches for future use To have consid eration for your fellows is a noble principle The speaker said that at one time there was a bind beggar seated on the corner in a large city He had an old violin but he was not a musician and the instrument was out of tune but he was trying tomake music for stoppedte conversa tion and in the talk he said I have no money but he took the violin tuned it and commenced playing In a few minutes a large crowd had gath ered and in a short time the blindmans cup was filled with coin This was an evidence of sympathy The blind was not only relieved but the musician was made to feel good The Public sale of lots last Thursday was fairly well attended but only five were sold ranging in price from 35 to 115 It appeared that the people were auctiondgave them an opportunity so the sale was declared off The location is 3 i beautiful one and Mr Mulligan had the property in nice shape except the main street to be opened intersecting the LindsayWilson street in front jot the college building He had a state ment from Governor J R Hindman regarding this that should have satis fied prospective purchasers but in our judgment this was the only hindrapce to the sale When that street is open ed we predict that the Mulligan addi tion will prove one of the most inviting localities for beautiful residences inCo lumbia The opening of that street will be of much worth to all partie in ier ted in that ectioBf or into1rowth iiiii r K a ilttt i lf t tf f 1 5 1IC

INCORPORATED CHAS S HARRIS EDITOR Drnocrattc newspaper devoted to the Intereeta er the city of Columbia and the people of Adair gad adjacent counties Entered at the Columbia Postoffice ai second law mail matterI WED AUGUST L 1906 Hon John D White made his speech to a small audience in th court house last Wednesday and like Congressman Edwards tour through this part of the district failed to arouse any enthusiasm It was our privilege to listen this o entire speech of more than boneplain and square must say that he is one of the strong and force ful debaters of this State His opposition to the policy of his party in some of the past campaigns has placed him at a dis advantage with many Republi cans and this predicament ought to be highlyb to Dem ocrats Realizing that our party has just reason for the belief that if the next nobt Democratic that it will be at least desperately close we fail to see why any Democrat should aid or encourage Mr Whites election In our judgment he is the man ofall men in this di trict that Democrats should want defeated not because of his demands for fair play and better politicaUmethods in his own party butbecause of his ability to do Democratic measures more harm in Congress than any other Republican in in the district or even the State Should we get imajority in Congress or should it be exceedingly close with the Crested Jay Hawker m that body then Democrats would r alize his full force and powers No Democrat should be deceived John D White is notla Democ and not a bolter from a single principle o ftp ty but to the contrary is a Re publican of the old school with sufficient power of mind to prove of tremendous harm to our party in Congress As things now are Democrats ought to stand afarJ off and not throw z a straw across the path of the present Congress man or rather give courage to he new entry Mr Herd The fact is he would probably do us d less harm than the present incumbent This is not a dem ocratic contest and it is to bej hoped that not a willItake part in the decision of se lecting a Republican nominee and especially to encourage not only one of the ablest but on of the bitterest opponents of Democratic principies and meas 1uresHis speech last day ought to be convincing toJ every Democrat who heard him It looks like revolution is inev andtiif there ev 7 was a country that needed ti a thing it seems

Bryan in Louisville on his way West from New York Mr Bryan has accepted the invitation and it is expected that hundreds of promi pent Democrats from every Southern state will be present There is one thing certain no warmer and more enthusiastic welcome will never be extended our distinguished citizen than he will receive in Kentuckys me tropolis His welcome to New Yrkmay be louder and his greetings more numerous but not more sencere From the theeway people aremoving it looks that as Washington was first in war first in peace and first in the hearts of his countrymen even so it is with W J Bryan in the great political reforma andeeloquence but a few years since He is the grandest American citizen now living measured by public confidence and esteem It is a great mistake when peo I

Of course there andisthe lip but in all human probability there is no man who could take the nomination away from Bryan if he wanted to do so and there will be none who would if couldThere is a general uprising among democrats everywhere that he be the man And what the people want they should have And what a remarkable tribute to the man it is when you consider that he is 10000 miles away from home with the globe between him and all political tur moil When you consider that nobody is especially working for his nomination and that no or ganization anywhere is setting up pins to secure the nomination from Bryan it is indeed the most remarkable demonstration of a mans strength we have seen in modern times The people instinctively turn to Bryan And they not only turn to him but he appears to them almost in the light of a prophet Just think of the things he said of the republican party and about the trusts and about the trust- and corporations why the demo crats themselves could not be lieve them to be true and now are made aware that the half hadnot been told Bryan accused the republicans of buying Mc Kinleys election Do you doubt it Bryan said the trusts had th country by the throat Do you doubt it He said high finance was putting in millions to defeat the will of the people If you know about the life insurance revelation do you doubt what he said23rYanrepresents all that is best in our system of govern ment He is today our typical American Behold the treat ment he is accorded in his trip around the world Grant with iall the honors of war and with f prestige of two terms as President was shown no more honors than Bryan a plain Ne braska farmer who is traveling around the world to see what he may see and to learn what there is in the world Then Ishouldnt democrats get into line and take advantage of the sentiment that already exists among the common people Laugh all you want to at the phrase The common people it will be the winning battle cry this year and in 1906 Why lfink of it They called Bryan an anarchist in 1896 and now Roosevelt is promulgating doctrines by the side of which Bryan is ultra conservative Bryan was for an income tax and he was called an anarchist Roosevelt favors it and he is called a Pat- ribt Bryan accused the big capit Nits of being corrupt and Roose elt goes after the packers and the insurance companies and other grafters as Bryan would never have dared to do There is no use to discuss the nomination of Bryan in 1908 for lie will be nominated if he lives and he will be elected too Trusts and combines and insur r a ance companies will not Hare to steal the peoples money and F h 1fA ly 4 give it over to the republican party to beat Bryan this time Bryan is a greater man in the hearts of the people than he has

combination of elements which have opened the door to him for study and research in every country which he has visited The party left London yester day and will return in time for the peace conference at which Mr Bryan will be a conspicuous figure Mr Bryan will sail to America from Gibralter about the middle of August With the endless speculation which is being indulged in as to the platform which he will adopt were he to become Democratic nominee for President the opin ion held By Jefferson M Levy former Democratic represent tive from New York who is now in London is of much interest because it brings to light a new phrase of the reforms which Mr Bryan is seeking to accomplish Looking at the situation from the standing of a banker Mr Levy believes Bryans probable campaign will appeal to

for many years he was the steady prop upon which Wall street could always depend for quick support Mr Sages genius was undoubtedly that of acquisition Early in his career he entered politics and served a term or two in Congress It is doubtful if he would have achieved the success or renown that came to him in the financial world had he elect ed to remain in public service He lacked the engaging perso nality and diplomacy that form the politicians armament and defense Simple in his tastes and habits frugal even tp the verge of parsimony with an un shakable confidence in the accu mulative properties of interest Mr Sage acquired a colossal for tune which he continued to aug ment almost to the day of his death It is not uninteresting to speculate upon the provision that he undoubtedly made as to its disposition after his eathMr Sage left no direct heirs Gin cinnati Enquirer The delightful Mr Jett with drew on the witness stand at Beattyville the accusations against his

situation in the South has reached the critical stage A railroad conductor in Alabama says that he knows of a field of 300 acres of cotton which has not been touched by a hoe this season Another man remarks that it is not a question of pay ing higher wages to farm labor ers but of getting laborers at any price Some may say remarks the Mobile Register that the ne groes are leaving because they are ill treated but this is certain ly not so The farmers interest everywhere is to treat the ne groes well The fact is that the negroes are too well treated that is too well paidthey can live without working more than a portion of the time and if urged to work they find it easy to move and get wages else where Owing to high prices and the demand for labor the ne groes are becoming more and more untrustworthy They can not be relied vupon to stay by contrcts or to do anything like a fair amount of work The at traction of wages six days a week is not sufficient to induce them to work The solution is in foreign imigration There is no choice about it The South must have foreign labor whether or not it is pre ferableBut statement of the Reg ister that the negroes are suffer ing from too much prosperity will hardly be credited at the North TimesDispatch Luckiest Man in Arkansas Im the luckiest man in Arkansas writes H L Stanley of Bruno since the restoration of my wifes health after
