Disadvantage to Institutions of Learning Now located Here THE QUESTION TO BE AGITATED The question of a Graded school in Columbia should receive honest and thorough consideration at the hands of all the citizens who believe in estab lishing institutions that are to the best interest of the town and communi ty There is no reason why a Graded School should be a disadvantage to the two colleges in this place from the fact that the number of students that such an institution would bring to the town would be an advantage to the other two schools rather than a dis advantage to them It is believed that an extension of the city limits would follow the adoption of the Graded School System which would increase the population and make the tax rate for maintaining the school compar atively light on all and conservative opinion in the matter is that such a school would be a great benefit rather than an incumbrance on the people Fair minded men are always ready to consider important questions fairly and impartially when upon such questions rest the material and educational growth af our town and should this proposition come before the citizens to be voted upon in the future dont let the matter of very small taxation prej udice you against voting for a thing that is for the best interest of your children and others who are less for tunate than yours A Graded School would prepare the younger students in many branches to enter college and take up the higher studies without the usual preparation that they have to go through in the Elementary departments of those institutions and taking this into consideration it would be a great advantage to children in preparation for college The two common school sites in Columbia could be sold for a sufficient sum of money to help far along toward putting up a building for a Graded school and then the money that would be available from other sources would go a long ways toward maintaing the school hence the tax could not be other than very light when the good that would come from such an institution is considered Lets talk it up and see what can be done F McL MO RRISONSANDUSKY Mr Frank Sandusky of the firm of Sandusky Myers

said that I would write something about Ladies Fall and Winter Headgear and so 1 will and since that time I have been taking a general observation upon the subject so as not to be unfair in the discussion of the matter Some one will be most certain to ask the question as to why it interests me to make re marks on such subjects and to such persons I will simply state that the styles are so unusual this Fall and Win ter as to excite the curiosity of the men in general as well as those who are concerned in the payment of their millinery bills when taken into con sideration the amount of value received for their money in this particular line There is no end to the shapes colors sizes and kinds and if a girl or wom f an can be pleased with any kind of a hat under the sun she can get it now Two weeks ago on Sunday morning I Jattended church and took a general survey of the situation relative to this line of thought and out of 97 hats on exhibition that day no two so far as I could see had assumed the same shape or appearance Some were little round felts about the size of a saucer with a bird wings ticking out about a foot or so from fcne sideothers were flat and looked as though theyhad been unearthed from a pile of debris and then turned crosswise the head while the Peter Pans were much in ev idence on the younger headscareless ly pinned up in front on one side or the other or behind to suit the notion There seems to be no similarity existing bewteen any of the models upon which the various articles of headwear for the women and girls are formed and fashioned for the Fall and Winter One day last week I saw a young dy standing on the side walk with oneI of those flat contrivances neatly ed on her head and to look at it side ways it looked as though her hat had met with a mishap and that a hundred or so of brick had fallen on it and after it had been extricated she had put it on cross wisethe ends produding out 6 or 8 inches on each side of her head Should a fellow happen to get a seat in church sometime behind a lot of girls who wore these hats he could not see anything in front of him ex cept the chandeliers hanging to the ceiling along the center of the building the preacher woula be excluded from his view entirely The most sensible hat I have seen the girls and young women wearing although they may not look so stylish as the others is a wool or felt hat on the manish order with in dentures in the crown or turned into a flat top They seem to be worn mostly for every day but according to the opinion of men they would make a very desirable churchgoing hat Do men go to church to see the hats worn by the women and girls or do they go to look into the preachers face as he delivers Ihi sermon I cont nd that most of them go for the latter purpose but if you cant see the preacher how are you to see his face forohar I am compelled to say that the are mightypretty but my what curiou fr 1 1 f iir t ideas those that fashion them must have in their minds Ive said enough on the hat subject inIpn Misses Eubank and Mrs Bradshaw who will gladly furnish it F M McLEAN entertainment TO TOBACCO SHIPPERS We wish to state to our friends through

TOBACCO MEADOW LAWN A News Man Makes a Trip to This FarmGood Work Being Done IThe News Man accompanied Mr J N Coffey to his farm known as Mead ow Lawn one day last week and spent several hours in looking over that large plantation and noting the improvements made and being made under its owners new methods of making the desert blossom like the rose Meadow Lawn is located about 7 miles Southwest of Columbia between Bliss and Gradyville and fronts on the Columbia and Gradyville road It is made up of two old farms containing near 400 acres of land rich and poor steep and level washed hillsides and fertile bottoms The fact is that Meadow Lawn was made according to MrI Coffeys judgment as an ideal stock and grain farm and he is undertaking to reclaim the waste places and bring it t tt trtt hv tve powers In this we are boundfto say that he is rapidly succeeding for several hill sides two years ago with gullies 2 to 8 feet deep galded places covering acres have been filled smoothed enrich ed drained and now in small grain and grass presenting a beautiful picture in contrast to their former appearance Mr Coffey has an instrument which enables him to drain his land without washing it up At a meeting of the Adair County Farmers Club he will make his theory known to all who may attend but the principle is that of ter racing and no man can see it demon strated without comprehending its value There are over 100 acres of grass on Meadow Lawn that has not been pastured and hay stacks dotted about which shows that it is productive With it rich bottoms productive slopes and many springs of clear water the boundary is one of value and while Mr Coffey is devising plans and puting into operation scientific methods yet all that is being accomplished is not due solely to him for Mr G W Spillman and fons whose energy and good judg ment coupled with honesty and determination are the ones who are really turning the dirt but both owner and tenant are making things happen s If the public square is not given a coatof rock or gravel soon the county can go in teferry business f c t t A KNAVE OR A FOOL Some time ago Brother Z T Wil liams had an article in the paper pro testing against a certain prayerchain letter that was going the rounds and itwas to be hoped that the foolishness would cease before now but it has not If the letter was sent out by a per son of good sense the originator is a knave because the purpose was likely to have been at the expense of the gullable To my own knowledge this has been done Aside from the cost of stamps mentioned by Brother Wil piousInon sense is a fool of cou se he is not worthy of punishment but ought to be in an institution for the feeble minded The good Bishop whose name was given in some of the letters knew nothing about the prayer until one of the letters was shown to him and he and his friends were very indignant that a liar should thus use his name The simpleton who started it says one person paid no attention to the lettter and was punished by an acci dent God dosent deal in accidents if the person was punished by an acci dent God has nothing to do with it 1 can give the names of a half dozen persons who have stopped the letters and have had no accidents The thing is heathenish and sensible people will pay no attention to those letters A K Kasey FLOUR AND SAW MILL FOR SALE I

The following appeal sent by the Kentucky Childrens Home Society is of special interest to Adair county peo ple This Society has taken a number of children from our section and either have them in their Home or have se cured good homes for them they have also placed a number of children in good homes in Adair hence the people are familiar with this work and should give liberally to the A touching causeIby the Kentucky ciety of Louisville for a generous Thanksgiving remembrance This is a longestablished custom of the society which usually meets with a generous response This year however on ac count of the recent political campaign and other countercauses the society finds itself sorely in need of funds The expense of accomplishing the rapidly expanding work and of fulfilling its full duty to the great mass of destitute children of the State is being greater and unless the public come to the aid of the institution the work will be great ly hampered this year Destitute child ren are coming to the care of the socie ty at the rate of more than 100 a month and the expense is necessarily great The society is being asked on every hand to take charge of the orphans and abandoned children from every county in Kentucky and its policy is not to turn a deaf ear to these entreaties To continue this work it is necessary to call upon the public for a generous re sponse to

Adair County Farmers club recently organized in Columbia under the of the Commissioner of Agriculture of Kentucky but no meeting was held How easy it is for our people to be fired with zeal and enthusiasm in any good cause and how soon the wave of indifference spreads its blighting effects is really alarming The organization above refered to and the and a half session held here but a short time ago seemed to outline much good to agricu 1 tural interests of this section Quite an interest was manifested at that time and it appeared to be true and substantial but before the ripple of enthusiasm had reached the sie ot an ordinary wave it dropped back to the spot of its origin and is seen no more Other efforts to organize for the betterment of Columbia and Adair county have passed over the same road shared the same fate and been consigned to the grave cov ered by indifference and bedeck ed with the flowers of individual interests The effort to or ganize a Commercial Club so es sential to a progressive town was placed on the cooling board before it was ten days old The unorganized efforts for better roads and more bridges have It been but feebly heard No cause can prosper without compact in telligent organized effort and if Columbia and Adair county want to shut off the stream of emigration that is sapping the very life of our section something must be done to better public condi tions and give more hope and ex pectancy to the many who dig from the earth the wealth that it yields It is a sad picture to witness the departure of so many of our young people who

each in dividual Set a day for a meet outIyour club willgrow and become a great power for good On the 21st day of this month Bishop Tigert passed to his long rest after a few days illness in Tulsa Indian Territory He was born and reared in Louis ville and had acquired preem inent standing and influence in religious work thraughout the entire country His field of labor was broad but his great natural ability adorned and brightened by education and many years of deep research gave him power to meet and dis charge the weighty responsibil itie that confront all really great men Pages will be writ ten in eulogy of his living his life and his death but no pen will overdraw his worth to the world There is not a doubt that his death is sorely regretted throughout this entire country that the Methodist church sustains a loss that cannot be esti mated and that the religious and intellectual world has given up one of its brightest jewels He was of humble but honorable parentage and Kentucky was proud of him as a native son a giant intellect and a stalwart defender of truth and justice Edwards majority in th Eleventh Congressional District- was only about 7000 IGRADYVILLE i Big Creek was
