higher altitude is essen tial the above action was taken Mr Hughes has been cashier of this institu tion since its organization and no one has a just right to feel prouder of its growth and splendid

in his hands and he has shown great proficiency in the work And whereas A men of ripe business ability and one of oiqc o t hoiforable iclt- r S sz 3r ur citizens is going out from us Be it resolved That we the Board of Directors of said Bank accept with much regret Mr Hughes resignation and tender our sincere thanks and appreciation to him for his faithfulness and proficiency and desire for him and his family good health long days and prosperity wherever they may cast thei lot JOHN 0 RUSSELL Pres HENRY N MILLER JAS P BEARD Z T WILLIAMS BRAXTON MASSIE N S M WERI DIRECTOR- SIn connection with the foregoing card from Mr Hughes I desire to thank my friends in Russell and Adair counties for the confidence and patron age given me during the five years I have been in the Banking business and I cordially invite you to come and do business with me at the First National Bank of Columbia promising you court eous treatment and every facility for the prompt and efficient conduct of your banking businessVery A D MAKE A CONCRETE WALK All parties who own property front ing the public square and who will be compelled to4nake side walks in accord to the ordinance passed by the City Council should not overlook the worth of having a uniform concrete walk There are a few stretches of brick not required to be disturbed but it would be much neater and much better if concrete walks could be made around the entire square The brick now used could be placed somewhere else by nearly every property owner to good advantage The sand under the brick would not be lost and the extra cost would be more than offset by the satis faction of having the best walk that can be made and to know that it would not be disturbed by future councils Why not all parties interested get to gether and decide to make such a walk Columbia too good a town its growth is too rapid and substantial and its fu ture too bright to do otherwise After the walk has been made no one would regret it and all would feel proud Unite gentlemen on this important step Help to keep values increasing and sustain the reputation of thrift and enterprise CHANGE IN FIRM Last week Mr J N Coffey of the firm of Hughes Coffey Co general Merchants purchased the interests of th other members Messrs E H and J D Hughes and in connection with Mr J F Patteson with whom he has formed a partnership will continue the business The old firm enjoyed a very liberal patronage and we believe that the present one will be accorded a good share of the trade The Messrs Hughes will leave in a few weeks for the South west with the intention of entering business and making that country their home BANANA PLANT Mrs T S Scott of near Coburg has three large banana stalks which are thriving as though this was a tropical clime The largest of these plants is four years old about twelve feet high and has as fine a bunch of fruit on it as can be found in any Southern climate Mrs Scott also has a very fine lemon specij On the first day of Circuit Court the square was full of mule colts for sale but so far as we w reableto learn but few sales were made The price- asked inmost cases was too steep to suet purchasers i v Ii at l iqt j t N 0 4 JJ CITY COUNCIL IN EARNEST The Rock Crusher Will be StartedIin The Near Future Last Thursday evening at the regu lar meeting of the City Council steps were taken that will doubtless meet the hearty approval of Columbians in gen eral After allowing a few small claims for work on streets etc by different parties the Council took up the proposition of better side walks and better streets An ordinance was pass ed requiring all owners of property to make good brick or cement walks in front of their property on the public square and to do so within 60 days It was also decided to put the rock crusher to work at the earliest possible moment and to give the four main streets attention first After they have been put in good condition other streets will have attention It is highly prob able that the work will begin in earnest within two weeks The resignation of the Marshall and Tax Collector Mr S C Strange was accepted and Mr F T Smith elected to fill his unexpired term Miss Daut Marcum was elected town assessor and also to take the census HARDIN COUNTY DRY The good old county of Hardin did herself proud in the local option elec tion held last week By the substan tial majority

Kentucky already has his opinion of the Dog Law before the court of last resort It occurred in this way Our esteemed Chief Justice J P Hobson paid a visit to Columbia a few days ago and was entertained at tea by Judge H C Baker In the company at supper was the Hon Rollin Hurt and Gov J R Hindman After sup per in the conversation the Dog Law about which so many in this section are muchexercised was mentioned Mr Hurt asked Gov Hindman to give Judge Hobson the legal opinion of the law as expressed by Mr Price stating that he is a man of strong ndweighty opinions on all subjects and is especially strong on the law in question he be ing apractical foxhunter S o m e nights previous when he and Gov Hind man were out on a chase Mr Price gave his opinion in the following wordsThe Dog Law is bad in principle is unequal taxation is unconstitutional and interferes with the Monroe Doc trine Judge Hobson laughed very heartily foxIthat the speech of one of their num ber isalready before the Court of Appeals filed with the Chief Justice lAD SEASON FOR SENG This season has been an unusual one on ginseng Many of the growers in Southern Kentucky have lost their entire crop of seed due to blight of the plants So far as we have heard vMfr C Sell Bennett js the only growers in iki Yjr1ha 2 county who has suffered a serious loss but many beds have been more or less affected Mr Bennetts entire garden wilted and died before the seed matur ed It is also reported that J W sufferledtoo much mulching and with leaves and fertilizers The loss in this seasons crop of seed will likely bring up the price from the low figures of last year and prove of worth to the growers of the plant as well Experience is a great teacher NEW ASSISTANT CASHIER At a meeting of the Board of Direct ors of the Bank of Columbia held last week Mr James R Garnett was elected Assistant Cashier to succeed Mr A D Patteson who resigned to accept the position of cashier in the First National Mr

y Ii SAVED HIS LIFE Jesus Lover of My Soul As Sung by Confederate Kills Federals Aim During the fierce and bloody battle of Perryville which is re membered by many older res idents a pathetic incident is re called which seems like a fairy story as it came to a happy cli max in a most remarkable man ner Many deeds of valor have been told to the rising genera tion by those who saw the canons belch forth their deadly missies and faced the unceasing fire of the enemy and many of them are remarkable Rev John Bruce was told the story that follows by an old soldier who was a Confederate follower but never repeated it to anyone until recently ofwwar brought to his memory this story that he heard the old soldier tell many years ago It was on the last night of the fighting The Confederate guard had been formed for pick et duty and one post was so open to the enemy and the sharp shooters that it was conceded by all to be a sacrifice of life for the soldier who drew it After the consultation among the men it was decided to cast lots and see who would be the victim of a Yankee sharpshooter The duty fell to a gallant young Kentuck ian who had run away from t home to join the Southern cause He was a perfect specimen of manhood and was known to possess a magnificent voice Having been reared in a Christ ian home he was early taugh- the good old songs and after making his will and arranging with his comrades to take care of his personal matters he went on duty that evening singing the grand old song Jesus Lov er of My Soul All through the lonely night when the bul lets were flying every now and then from the rifles of the sharp shooters he kept up his song that had been taught him in hie walked into camp and his com rades were surprised to find him alive About ten years after the t close of the war a large excur 4 sion boat was plying the placid Potomac river In a crowd of women stood a fine looking man entertaining them with his mag nificent voice A little way off r sat another man reading a news paper The singer all atonee struck up the old song Jesus Lover of My Soul The reader listened a moment there was something in that voice that re minded him of days gone by After the singer had finished he walked to where the gay crowd was seated and grasping the man by the hand asked Were you in the Confederate army rYes replied the singer Were you at the battle of Pe 1 ryville 1 I was he replied growing more and more interested Then said the speaker Uthat song you Were just sin ing saved your life for it was thosi sweet strains that made my trusty rifle drop from my show- derr when you were on picket du ty and I was a sharpshooter o the other side ap inted to get 4Yf4 1 lY the soldier on duty at that post out of the way It was a beau tiful moonlight night in October andwhen I heard you come on duty singing that old song I could hardly keep my courage up Just as I was preparing to sendswellaimed shot your voice rang out Cover my de fenseless head with the shadow of Thy wing It was too much for me and unloading my gun I returned to the command I have never related the story un til now but your voice returned to me in a way that I have never heard since that memorable night Danville Advocate- Escaped Death It is not an uncommon experience for us to get a letter describing how the writer escape death by taking Dr Cald wells laxative Syrup Pepsin for some

belonging to anoth er tells of an animal who stood at the fence neglecting to eat and looking longingly into a pas ture across the fence where it morbtender and plentiful than that which grew in its

sentiment is against the survival of the weeds but they still have a home on the farm and thrive as though they were strengthened by the printedef forts to get rid of them It would seem to be almost another case of persecution making stronger instead ofending The weeds have not a single good quality that they can really call upon to give them the right to exist on the farm They do not lend beauty to the yards nor to the roads They are not raised for medicinal purposes and they can not be harvested and sold Weeds bear the same relation to a road or yard as dirt does to a house They are out of place andshould not be tolerated They detract both from the beau ty and the value of whatever spot they happen to be on But here the relation ceases The housewives who find dirt in the homes immediately sets about to get rid of the dirt With brooms and brushes and rags they start the battle and when the retreat is sounded the homes are neat and clean In case of yards gardens and the ground by the roadsides there seems to be very little attention paid to the matter by the farm letethe weeds mature and develop a great crop of seed for the next season and dying spoil the ap pearance of the ground com pletely In fact the weeds do not have to die to spoil the ground The looks of the farm are decreased about one hundred per cent by the living weeds PARADISEY The man who originated

this country began to be settled by Europeans The prov intfiction Judge Halliburton author yesPonsid 1ble for it According to the ve racious Sam Slick Jobs tur key was so poor that it had only one feather in its tail and was fencerto gobble The phrase caught on and has been used ever since many people imagining that Job really owned the poverty strick en gobbler Torture by Savages Speaking of

it will take to make a pound of gainSlops made of middlings and skim milk are among the best foods for suckling sows Push the growing pig and sell the young thereby reducing the chances of loss Sows can be kept in smooth sightly conditions and yet fulfill all the requirements of abundant milk production There is no philosophical rea son why acidity of food should give any better returns than sweet food- Naturenever designed that an animal should suckle down to a skeleton which is never done if a proper supply of food is given Never make your selection for a brood sow until a reasonable age has developed the goodand bad qualities that are sure to come out In selecting a brood sow be sure that she is straight and heavy in the limb short in face and nose hea y in jowl with good heart and flank measure mentUnder average conditions with the farmer there is very little profit in feeding pigs after they reach a weight of 250 pounds The most pork is made with the least feed on young pigs It does not follow because a hungry pig will gulp down al most any kind of slop that any kind is good enough for him Make the slop strong enough to give the pig a well rounded form that will stay with him all of the time not the form that is seen just after leaving the trough M SOME WAYS OF WORKINGI There are a great many ways of doing a job besides the pro verbial right and wrong ways Emerson saysThere is always a best way of doing everything if it be but to boil an egg So while your way of doing a thing ti Sh q iii r 1 T lif ir may not be exactly the wrong way it may fall short of being the best way writes E E Miller in Farm Journal Did you ever go out to plow a field for example and say to yourself I must get this done by noon Friday and then strain every nerve to finish it by that time I have and it always seem ed as if the horses never went so slowly or tired so quickly as if there were more stones and stumps in the field than I had ever dreamed of and as if there were more outside jobs that needed attention and which took me away from the work in hand than I had ever before known Usually I am only too glad to see apt ats that I could find no plaesure in any one And of course every tao come allsweek and I would finally get the setmaye be a halfday gained and a weeks work made twice as hard as it need have been Of course there are times when one must hurry but usual takeIon on quantity to give ones self time calmly to meet the delays tha are almost sure to come Did you ever notice the man who has a job that should last threefourths of a day andwho tries to stretch it out over a whole one He will work with exagger ated care and with infinite pa tienceand slowness to keep from going to another piece of work no harder than the one on which he is engaged- I am sure you have seen the man worse than either of these who fights his work As long as everything else goes all right so does he but the minute any little thing turns the wrong way he flies off the handle and frets and fumes and sulks until he is called to dinner or sent to bed He inevitably makes his work twice as hard as it should be and adds to the wear and tear on his muscles an even greater amount on his nerves and spirit It seems that he cant help it once he is stirred up he takes a positive delight in being out of humor And when you are looking for things to go wrong they seldom disappoint you 1Ithought that the most valuable mental charac teristic a man could have is such a selfcentered poise that he could meet all duties and every change of circumstance with that calm reasonableness of mind and that sweet serenity of spirit which are perpetual with a few happy persons but which most of us possess only when things are go ing just to suit us Critically III Many

which they will clean up readily It should be fed early in the morning after watering and before feeding grain At noon in hot weather when there is much work to be done it should be withheld or but a pound or so allowed after a sip of water and while the horse is cooling off before getting his noon feed of grain At night it should be liberally fed after the grain ration has been masticated The hay should be of good quality and should be wet if dusty The amount fed should be increased when work decreases Wherein summer time ten to twelve pounds a day will suffice the winter amount may be doubled as the grain ration is decreased During the hard work season it is not the amount of food eaten but the amount digested and as r J Sentinel similated that countsFarmers DIFFERENCE IN MAN AND WOMAN Did you ever hear of a man I trying to lift a poor unfortunate woman when she falls from the high pedestal of honor and virtue There is too much infern al blood creeping through our snakepolluted veins Whe once a poor innocent and un fortunate woman trips and fall from her high and honored po sition she lands in a hell from which no human will stoop t0 lift her out Husband and brother father and son sweet heart and lover are deaf to her cries from that hour But on the other hand how be it I have seen men as low as it is possible for men to fall I have seen the wife lift the husband from the gutter and press the drunken cuss to her heart and with tears and sympathy love andanguish trickle down her cheeks in profusion I have t seen the wife follow the husband through life in a constant whirl ofmisery and misfortune and when at last at the gates of hell they are separated would stand and wring her hands in mortal agony because the curtains had fallen between them andshe could go no further I have known a wife to wash for money and give it to her drunken sot and brute she called husband to buy beefsteak and he would spend it for rotgut whiskey I have known the mother to follow

program and I j az II a large attendance The program will include six business sessions The Conven tin will be called to order at 130 pm Wednesday October 10th and there will be an even ing session that day Thursday morning the delegates will go on an excursion to Beattyville as the guests of the Winchester Commercial Club where some of the Eastern Kentucky coal- mines and lumber plants near

evening the last day three sessions will be held Senator William Lindsay of New York has accepted an invi tation to act as Chairman of the Conventionr A feature of much interest on the program is that of the Roll Call of Counties Seventytwo counties responded to the roll call at Louisville and the Committee expect to have more responses this year Each County judge in the State has been asked to select a man in his county to pre pare a statement to be used on the roll call of counties setting forth county statistics in answer to the following questions 1 In what does your county excel neednmost 3 What is its labor sup suchslabor command 4 What fac tories and other industries have you Give the capital employed extent of business number of employes and amount paid in wagesThe information thus furnish ed to the Convention will be compiled and given wide publici ty throughout the United States to attract to Kentucky capital seeking investment This matter is one that should not be overlooked in any county It is an excelent means of adver tising your resources and desira bility as a location of such indus tries as you need and of bringing before the public what you have and what you want Men throughout the country who are seeking investment read the literature of such bodies as the State Development Convention and a good strong statement from your county will be of

editorial paragraph which the people of Louisville and Kentucky can afford to think over With all the progress that has been made in ocean freighters no ship has yet been built whicheven remotely approaches the transportation capacity of an Ohio river towboat The Sprague recently handled 70000 tons of coal in one tow safely andexpeditiously at a cost far below that of carriage by rail It would

of the name be stowed upon it by the imperial Augustus who presided over Rome at the zenith of her glory in the golden age of the empire It is indeed an august month After filling the whole agricultural world with richness and beauty it marches out with all its gorgeous drapery around it with the dignity of an old queen Her sway this year has been of unusual splendor Never did t her blazing suns accomplish more for the toiling children of men Filledwith poetical charms all its own flushed with beauties that appeal to the eye it is in addition to all this the month of utility the period of perfecting processes the time ofripening and fullness of fruitage It is the suns of August that put the rich red rose on the cheeks of the apples as they hang in clus ters on the lowbending limbs It is then the grape gets its purple the peach its blush and the flowers the vitality soon to ripen in the glories of early Autumn The sunflower lolls her head lovingly toward the god of her idolatry from day to day until her round beaming face receives the richness of color that be tokens maturity But above all it is the month of King Corn During the thirtyone days when Sirius is in the ascendant the imperial crop of all the world imbibes the strength that insures berfection It is then it puts on that tassel which outshines the plume of Navarre It is then it evolves the silk that shames the looms of Cashmere August makes or unmakes the corn crop These days of steady heat and alternate moisture fix the crisis of its fate It may withstand a weak June a bad July or an un satisfactory September but a cold or dry August would be fa tal The month sacred to old Au gustus is the culmination Then if ever King Corn is to be crowned His robes are woven in the mystic looms of an incomparable workshop his diadem is crystalized by the central suns as they march majestically in es cort of the waning Summer August of 1906 memorable month of a memorable year will be printed in red letters in the calendar of every American farmer It has surpassed all its predecessors as a perfecter and finisher The splendid rains with which it was ushered in and which covered practically our whole agricultural area taken in connection with the steadily dif fused heat made the season ideal Nothing better could be asked nother finer expected A great wheat crop had already been garneredan abundant supply o fruits was in sight the meadows were satisfactory the small grains ample and to crown it all August made sure such a growths of corn as has seldom been seen even in the matchless valley of the Mississippi We are to have another year of greatabundance of peace and plenty abounding prosperity of increasing farm values and wealth beyond the dreams of avarice There will be millions of smiling farm faces happyJ i p that already astonishes the world will grow still larger for the American farmer will have enough and to spare Secretary Wilson will be able to write an other rhapsodic tribute to the productive power of American farmers as the indications point to an eclipse even of last years splendid showing The more than six billions may be surpass ed As we look around in these fading days of a most auspicious August as we hear the orchards and cornfields ringing with labor see the trees bending beneath the thick clusters of rich fruit which bow their branches to the ground and observe the corn piled in graceful sheaves or waving in every light breath that sweeps about it the imagination- is inflamed with an ardor corres ponding to the golden hue that tinges the lovely landscape Surely the gods have smiled upon happy America and Jupiter Plu vius and Apollo entered into a combination to produce a season of fruitfulness transcending any thing that has gone before Mother quail may hover her flock with full assurance that there will be plenty of good things for the coming months Weed seeds will not be lacking and there will be thebgleaners Tom turkey may know that he will be fine and fat for Thanksgiving The g run telS may grunt in blissful anticipa tion of the seven cents a pound they are going to bring as there suit of the fat the new corn has put on their ribs The rains and suns of midSummer have set the bluegrass firmly for Fall and the bullocks may proceed to round themselves out for export The dairy cows may smile at pros pects for distended udders and the makings of cud to traverse those three stomachs they carry about with them Indeed if our ruminants are reasoners they will pronounce the closing Summer the best ever and lash their tails in a wave of welcome as well as thanks to the glorious god of harvests for sending all these delights Pessimists may persist and the restless gentry who talk about proletariats capitalism exploiters and panics may insist on being al lowed to continue miserable but surely no farmer will venture a discordant note He is the chosen son of Ceres and the dart ling of Pomona the favorite of the fates the heir of the ages Calamities may come in this uncertain world the wheel of fickle fortune may turn awry the rains may be withheld by another angry Elijah and Old Sol may hide his face But the present- at least is secure and he is an un wise man who goes out in search sparefep onights for fear of trouble con tinue to predict evil and see dire portents in a clear sky Let the howlers howl and let the heath en rage but they cant rob us of past pleasures or the treasures that are in hand Neithercan they obliterate from our minds recollections of what has been brought by this most gloriotis of seasons this most august of all Augusts American Farmer Pinch back chrysanthemums about the first of the month I 1 lb REMINDERS FOR THE MONTH Fall Work To Be Done About The House And Garden This is one of the best months for painting buildings says Coun try Life in America There is less chance of dust blowing on the fresh paint than in summer A bright clear day should be chosen If after a rain give ample time for woodwork to become thoroughly dry before applying paint Fill nail and knot holes with putty Paint will have plenty of time to harden before the winter Give the east side of buildings an extra coat Ice storms are very destructive to paint See that the sieves on eave troughs and leaders are sound and in place You dont want leaves in the cistern Open the cellar doors during cool nights to dry and ventilate the cellar Before storing fruits and vege tables in the cellar see that the drains are open and screens pro vided to keep out vermin Keep an eye on the chimneys Equinoctial storms may loosen some of ihe bricks This is the best time of the year for making lawns Grade carefully and fill all hollow spots Give weed seeds a chance to ger minate then destroy them by raking thoroughly before seeding Cuttings of geraniums fuch sias heliotropes etc for plants for next seasons growth should be made Also cutting of goose berries and currants should be taken and buried in the cellar Bulbs for winter blooming in the house should be started Hyacinths scillas fuchsias iris early tulips cyclamens and narcissi may be potted Use a soil made up principally of leaf mould with a little sand Water well and place in a cool cellar for for a month Bring to the light and heat gradually For quick effects border plants may be dug up potted andcut back Shade and water carefully for two weeks The runners or violets intended for winter blooming should be trimmed off- Perennials z that have finished flowering may be divided Stake and tie fall blooming plants such as dahlias mari golds and cosmos Hardy roses may be bedded out New strawberry beds should be set out Strawberry runners should be trimmed off to throw the strength into the crowns for next seasons fruiting Blackberries etc may be set- out Asparagus cans should be cut backOnions not harvested in August should be attended to Spinach dandelion andcorn saladmay be sown Seed of cabbage cauliflower and lettuce should be sown for cold frames sEarly celery is ready for bank ing Cultivate late celery intensively and draw the earth up to the stems to keep them upright Fullgrown cabbage should be pressed over to check growth By so doing the bursting of the heads is prevented and maturity hastened i J r MURDER TRIAL IN HARDIN How Ben Hardin Convicted a Man On Circumstantial Evidence The Bardstown Standard gives the following interesting account of how Ben Hardin convicted a man of murder in Elizabethtown on circumstantial evidence One of the most remarkable cases of conviction on circum stantial evidence was the Spen cer murder case tried in the Hardin Circuit Court Spencer had been indicted by the grand jury on very slight evidence fer the murder of his stepson The boy had been sent a short dis tance from home by his mother on an errand He went on horse back Not long after his de parture the horse returnedrider less The mother wished to go in search of the boy but her hus band forbade her Shortly afterward the boy was found dead in the public road with a fracture of the skull The theory of the defense was that the boys death resulted from being thrown from the horse this opinion was gen erally accepted and Spencers acquittal was regarded as cer tainHardin undertook the prosecu tion convictionb that Spencer was the murderer His arguments were these Spen cer and his wife lived together happily the boy being the source of discord consequently Spencer was interested in his death Spencer was not at home at the time of the murder and explain ed his absence very unsatisfac torily and also prevented his wife from seeking the missing boy There was no hard sub stance near where the boy fell to produce the wound the head so it must have been caused by a blow Not far from the spot a hickory shrub had recently been cut down which made a fine cudgel Spencer had freshly ground an axe that morning but had failed to grind out the gaps The hickory stump showed that it had been cut with an axe that had gaps in it On comparison the gaps in the stump exactly corresponded with the gaps in the axe Tracks identified as Spencers were found entering a field from the direction of the killing Some person who knew of the boys movements had evi dently taken this particular axe cut the sapling lay in wait for the boy and killed him with a blow on the head this pe- rsonrJHardinSpencer The defense simply denied all this and there were no proofs The jury found Spen cer guilty and he was sentenced- to be hanged Before the execu tion he confessed that he com mitted the crime in exactly the manner described by Mr Hardin and insisted that some one must have informed the latter as to the details How to Live Life after all is never very happy if a person is constantly sick How to lives is large guestion of how to be well The answer to both is keep your main health communication stomach liver and bowelsin good or der with Dr Caldwells laxative Syr up
