about 8 oclock Edmonton was the scene of murder The particulars gathered over the phone are about as follows J A McCandless and Hubert Pur sley were brothersinlaw and several weeks ago they had some trouble and it was generally expected that the bit terness existing between the two men would result seriously though McCand less wanted no further trouble Friday evening at the hour above named McCandless and several other min were standing on the corner of the square talking Pursley came up and remarked to McCandless I understand you have said you intended to kill me Notwithstanding the accu 4ation was denied Pursley drew his re volver and fired killing McCandless instantly Immediately after the shoot ing the murderer took to the woods and at this writing he has not been apprehended The sentiment is strong against Pursley and every effort will be made to bring him to justice McCanaless was a brother to the man who killed Judge Geo R Price two years ago and by trade was a barber Since writing the above we learn that Pursley has surrendered and will prove thatthe dead man threatened to kill him onsight MISS LIZZIE HANCOCK ASSAULTED The Green river section of this coup ty is up in arms over an outrage that was perpetrated by a negro man at the home of ltIiBenFTupman fS last Sat urday Mr Tupman and his wife were absent from homenoone on the place but Miss Lizzie Hancock a lady be tween thirtyfiye and forty years of age and she was in the cookroom A candayidentify approached the house enter ed the kitchen and assaulted her then made his escape into the woods Miss Hancockgave an alarm and as quickly as a squad of men could get together they started on a hunt for the perpetrator of the foul deed Up tothe time we go to press no arrest has been made but it is believed that the fiend will be caught Miss Hancock says he was armed with a revolver and placing it against her head said that if she re sisted or made any noise he would kill her It is hoped that justice will over take the guilty party Since writing the above we learn that Miss Hancock is in a very critical con dition her reason almost dethroned She is a very frail woman her friends fearing that she will not recover from the horrible ordeal There is but one remedy for such a crime and doubtless thatwill be resorted to should tHe negro be caught It seems that nothing can be brought to bear to deter negro brutes They are hung and burned by mobs but the crime of outraging wo men goes on NOTICE TO TAX PAYERS Iwill this week begin to wind up for all taxes unpaid for the year 1906 I

He will be assisted by Miss Mar garet Taylor who gave such general satisfaction in the primary department last year Prof Ohlenmacher will have charge of the music department He needs no endorsement

his profession He is also a minister and will preach for the Presbyterian Church until the first of January He says that he can not do justice to both the school and the church but is willing to fill the pul pit until a regular pastor can be se cured Everybody who met Dr Whit field here last weekwas well pleased with his address and the ideas he ad vanced in conducting an institution of learning Remember the l1nd F High School will open the first Monday in September The many friends of Mr Dave Allen who residesin Lincoln county will be sorry to learn that he was seriously hurt a few days ago and disfigured for life He purchased a bull from Mr John Baugh his neighbor who deliver ed it in company with another man Mr Allen paid the price and the men got into a dispute over dividing the money Mr Allen was asked to make the division but he told them to settle it themselves At this Baugh became infuriated knocked Mr Allen down and bit off his nose Mr Alleirwas carried to Louisville for surgical attention I WILL BE SEEN AT THE FAIR It is not often that a cow gets up about the 2000 pound notch across over here in the beargrass and for the fact that Flowers Bros of Bliss have one of this reputation we give it public comment Mystic Gfiief is a male ShrlrtI horn and a rich roan weighing about 1850 pounds He is one of the fist types of this famous strain ever to enter the show ring Mystic Chief was sired by Mystic Archer seaSon alone costing 75 Mystic Archer was imported from Scotland by A B Walsford d Auburn Ind at cost of 6000 We understand that Flowers Bros have a five months old male calf by Mystic Chief and en titled to register thats a chip from the old Block so if any locality is in need of a good young bull this one should be seen at the fair and secured GRADYS

their children are now living at Rocky Hill Station in Edmonton county Ky Sampson Matthews the other son died seve al years ago NeitherW S Matthews nor his wife 1 Henrietta Mathews ever applied d for

head perfectly white Mr Eubank has his third wife and several young children Every morning the little ones go to the Squires bed and jolly him before he gets up Sunday morning they were surprised and alarm ed upon discovering that their fathers hair had turned dark They called their mother who also became fright ened knowing that the change was remarkable and also knowing that there was nohair coloring on the premises The Squire was on the square Monday morning with dark hair stating that he used no coloring and could not account for the change New Elocutionist for LindsaYWilson- The Elocution Department of the LindsayWilson Training School under the able management of Miss Duncan has attained a high degree of excel lenceShe taught what is known as the Natural Method and her pupils are especially distinguished by the absence of that affectation which isso shocking to good taste The new teacher Miss Grace Meek of the University of Chicago is an en thusiastic teacher of this same system and will doubtless carry the work to stillgreater perfection She is a grad uate of the Columbia School of Express Ion and at present is doing advanced work in English at the University as a means of better preparation for her work As sbe is skilled in the use of Indian clubs dumbbells etc her classes in Physical Culture will be full of interest and benefit to the girls

in building a line from Roswell to Elida I put five weeks in on this line hence I had an opportunity to see all the country between Ros well and Elida I am sure that near Elkins and Campbell is as fine country as there is in New Mexico the land is different from this if you had a shovel full of Elkins or Campbell land and a shovel full of the sandy land of Crocus bottoms you would think they were from the same place although this land is a little looser I am sure that no one would make a mistake in flu ing near Elkins There is plenty of land at these places and one can get as close to the railroad station as they would like no Post Office at either plaice only a railroad station Here I would off era suggestion if any one should by chance see these lines that have a family and have

adjacent counties Entered at the Columbia Postoffice as second class mail matter iA AUGUST 15 1906 Senator Tillman regrets the fact that Hon W J Bryan is placed before the country so long in advance of the real conflict for the Presidency He fears that it may prove disastrous to his chances This is true of the average man but Mr Bryan is above the average in loftiness of purpose intellectual powers and esteem of the people True the greatest waves of popularity have lasted but a short while and an ideal personage disap peared from the horizon of hope and expectancy all along through the history of man yet many have stood the test ota scrutinizing public and lived to a full r fruition of pictured possibilities At Present all eyes are on Mr Bryan The real friends of- Democracy see in him the leader ship that means victory and the elements that indicate better enthusesition is looking on with alarm and naturally will do all within the power of organized effort to peduce his standing with the treat mass of people but while this is true and may prove Hk yetithere is one thing certain he is no more under the ceaseless and merci less fire of criticism than he has been since he was nominated and took the lead ten years ago From the day of his famous speech before a Democratic Na tional Convention he has stood the test held his friends and won the admiration and confidence of thousands who first op posed himliHe appeared in the political world as a boy reached his present age and statue under the microscope of the ablest r critics and most powerful influ dei struction of any political leader Today he is a man a man among men a leader whose powers may well be feared by pet industries thatare sapping the life from i the great masses through policies of discrimination and unjust taxes We have no fear of de parting glory though the enemy exhaust its intellectual and fi plishfit He has stood the test and will grow in public esteem as he f is bettet known New England

vK 11 r r1 he may choose to make and who will vote for him under any and all circumstances regardless of conditions or who may oppose him but there are many of them who believe he is asking too much from his party when he seeks to oust such a faithful able and worthy man as Senator McCreary whose service in the United States Senate bears the approval of those who take pride in anable Representative Especially is this true just at this MrbMcCreary asks his party only to give him a second term which has been Democratic custom all along where the sevice has been faithfully and ably performed Change the conditions and but some other man against Gov Beckham and he would sweep the entire country Many be lieve that the Governor should waet and not seek to wear the honors of United States Senator sntil McCreary has been en dorsed by giving him a second term This sentiment is gaining ground as the days come and go yet there are those who care nothing for precedent and will support the Governor loyally and enthusiastically but it is a Dem ocratic contest and will be a Democratic decision V Hon M Rey Yarberry has been out in this long district forf several days doing the political act necessary to send congressman D C Edwards back ta Washington Mr Y ayberry seems to be the leader in plans and debates against the crested Jay Hawker from Clay and the aspiring Herd from Bell and should Mr Edwards win lie may well and truly attribute a large part of his victory to Yar berry To an outsider a Dem ocrat it looks like White and Herd have more to fear in Mr Yarberry than any other man in the district He is evidently the leader and the hardest man on the stump to handle Hon Jas Garnett of this place is one of ten selected by Nation al Committeeman Woodsort to be

the last few years in the number of w inen employed in various branches of commercial life in Japan must be regarded as a very significant sign of the times Not content with the oc cupation which have almost ex clusively belonged to females they have invaded those fields which have hitherto been consid ered as belonging to the male sex thear employment of women as clerks and bookkeepers has been found satisfactory and we now find girls employed by many of the firms and stores in Tokio and other large cities The employ ment of women in these various directions will do much toward emancipating the Japanese women who have until now been entirely dependent on men for the shaping of their destinies It is only natural under such cir cumstances that female educa tion should engage serious public attention The number of educaItionthan eight times the number of those at school ten years ago More remarkable are the figures given by the Tokio Educational society Fifteen years ago the percentage of females admitted to the training school for teach ers was less than 20 as coniPar j led with the men but today the rate has been completely rer tyr versed the number ofmal applicants being now about 15 per cent of the total It is said that women as teachers are proving themselves superior to men and that there is consequently more demand for the former than the latter There is no doubt that the employment of women in the various branches of business activity will steadily increase with the advance of education among them Japan Chronicle The will of the late Russell Sage the New York
