McClure Saturday Morning As a result of a murderous assault made by Leonard McClure colored in the livery barn of Allen Walker Sat urday morning a young white man Cager Jones is lying at his home in this city in a very critical condition Both men were employed by Mr Walker and from witnesses we gather the following statement The parties were sent to grease some vehicles the negro having the box and in a friendly scuffle as the witnesses thought Jones jerked the grease from the negro and the latter was so angered that he struck him once or twice with his fist whereupon Jones turned and started towards his work McClure grabbed a heavy piece of oak timber and slipping up behind the white man dealt him a murderous blow which felled him to the floor with such force as to knock several teeth loose and the blood oozed from his mouth The injured man was placed in a buggy and carried to his home where he was examined by Dr W R Grissom who says that the skull wasnot fractured but the man is in a very serious condition McClure was arrested by Sheriff Pat teson and lodged in jail Jones removed to Columbia about a year ago from Grady ville and with his wife resides in a tenant house owned by Mr Allen Walk er near Greensburg street He is a poor man financially and this spell will work a great hardship on his family McClure is about eighteen or nineteen years of age and is a son of the late Wm McClure who was killed by Jody Burbridge last March The examining trial has been set for Thursday COLLEGE ASSURED The Citizens of Greensburg Put HpQashfor College Building The citizens of Greensburg and Green county met in the Presbyterian church Tuesday evening at 7 oclock and with their pursestrings loose and both hands down deep in their pockets and inside of two hours changed the destiny of this town and county by raising six thousand dollars for the erection of a highclass college in this town What does this mean It means everything It reveals that when the citizens of this community are thoroughly aroused they show what kind of stuff they are made of The results of Tuesday night show that the kind of stuff is the very best kind and that it is going to be made still better The citizens were aided in their efforts by Rev Donald McDonald of Danville Dr J J Rucker of George town College and Gov Hindman of Columbia They made splendid speeches and encouraged the citizens to make this good investment This is certain ly a week of thanksgiving for our peo ple When that meeting adjourned Tuesday night Greensburg and Green county had changed their course and with a fond goodby bade farewell to the past and asked her citizens to fol low her in her march to the front rank of prosperity and advanced civilization Green County Record MASONIC BANQUET The Columbia

Mountains by W D King a Commercial Traveler of This City Mr W D King had a thrilling ex perience in the mountains of Tennessee one night last week Mr King is a Drummer called by many a com mercial traveler at any rate he sells dry goods and a big lot of them and whide in the mountains of Tennessee one near Jamestown he spent a night with a farmer Near the place he was stopping was a turkey roost and after hearing about it Mr King became anxious to kill some turkeys that night so his farmer friend and two other men and Mr King secured guns and left for the turkey Slaughter pen On their way up the m they came across six black bears two old ones and four well grown cubs They opened fire on one of the old ones that showed fight and finally succeeded in killing it but in the midst of the battle the bear made a rush at Mr King who left the earth in a pair of seconds by climbing atree so fast that the bear gave up and rushed at anoter Mr King forgot to use his gun and doubtless made a lucky escape as it was not loaded for bears Bears are not common in that section and it is thought the ones above mentioned were just passing through After the one had been killed the others made their escape When Dr Whitfield took charge of the M F last September he imme diately revised and strengthened the courses of study making the curricu lum conform to the entrance requirement of the best colleges and universi ties in the South and at the same time gave it sufficient elasticity to accomo date that large class of Students who wish only a business training The wisdom of this st p is already bearing fruit in an increased interest and en thusiam upon the part of the student body The Normal course has been arranged with a special view to the ac commodation of prospective teachers and those already in the work who for any reason wish to review or make more thorough preparation for their calling Both these classes will find the arrangements at the M F ad mirably adopted to their

who has been asleep twelve or fourteenb years at Rowena Ky lished in the News has been widely copied sometimes correctly but mostly with additions by an imaginative brain The following article is taken from a recent issue of the Washington Times and we give it for what it is worth At first flush there is deep sympathy for Herschel Grider of Rowena Ky who has just recovered from a trance which has lasted twelve years He is now fortyfour years old and has until a few days ago been fast asleep since one Autumn day in 1894 Physicians exerted every effort to arouse him but he slept on Nourishment was admin istered by artificial means and his health was apparently good but all ef forts to awaken him were futile until a few days ago when he yawned stretched arose in bed and wanted to know if the morning paper had come Now he is all right once more but is in an awful stew over his inability to un derstand things that have happened while he had his little nap extending two years over a decade Grider has lost twelve eventful years Since he went to sleep his country has become a world power He got drowsy just on the end of a panic and he has missed twelve years of prosperity un paralleled in the Nations history He never heard of Dewey or the shot in Manilla bay the echo of which was heard around the globe and gave Amer ica a place in world politics The res cue of Cuba from Syains tyrannic rule the acquisition of the Philippines the downfall of Spain the humiliation of Russia and the rise of Japan the march of civilization into China as a result of the Boxer uprising the set tlement of the coal strike the peace conference at Portsmouth the founding of The Hague court and its dream of international peace the American invasion of the markets of the world the progress that has been made toward making America great and her people the most prosperous on earth all these events are as a closed book to Grider He has missed a lot and sympathy for him seems natusal But the law of averages in inexo- able Grider has missed some things that the American who has slept only seven hours a day in the last twelve years would like to forget and is apt to envy Griders ignorance of them 1He never heard of Kettle or San Juan He knows nothing of the Rough- Riders and the offices they are filling The second ratio and governme without consent of the governed an thecross of gold and crown of thorns are as Greek to him So far as he knows Bryan is still representing the Second Nebraska district in Congress He never heard of Coin Harvey He never heard of Poultney Bigelows trip to the Panama canaL The name of Alton B Parker and the swimming hole at Esopus mean nothing to him He does not know that James Hazen Hyde is not still giving dinners with the policy holders surplus He probably thinks that Paul Morton is still clerking for the Burlington in Chicago and he does not know that Missouri went Republican in 1904 He would not understand references to Carr ie II7 II y I Nation or Cassie Chadwick and he has missed General Grosvenors pre dictions in six Congressional and three Presidential campaigns The Shaw resignation rumors have not reached him and he probably has no recollection of Mr Cortelyou except as a stenogra pher at the White House He knows nothing of Senators Burton or Mitchell the land frauds and graft proba ly has only a horticultural significance to him He has no intimate knowledger of Lincoln Steffins Ida Riis Tom Lawson or William Allen White and he probably does not know whether there is anything the matter with Kansas at this particular time He never heard of Machen or Beavers and the postoffice scandal and he has not been eating any Chicago canned meats To him Eugene V Debs is still in the Woodstock jail and the name of Upton Sinclair strikes no terror to his soul Dowie and his freak creeds were as dead twelve years ago as they are now He will not under stand the talk about the lid or the open door or simplified spelling or the Thaw trial or the Platt scandal While the first thought for Grider will be one of sympathy it may turn to envy before the books balanced TUOMPSONBLEDSOEI The News is in receipt of the following announcement Mrs F E Thompson invites you to be present at the marriage of her daughter Edna Nash to Rev E S Bledsoe- on Tuesday afternoon the first of January One thousand

killed and a number of both crews more or less injuredIThe injured man has been on the road eight years and this is his first accident Mr Patteson was in com munication with relatives at Mt Ster restmgasIcircumstances l NEW SET OFINSTRUMENTS The Columbia Band Boys Circula Subscrption Paper 1ting rIt has been known for some time that the Columbia Band Boys were to purchase a new set of instruments and to do this will necessitate the raising of five or six hundred dollars which will buy a first class outfit For this purpose subscription paper is being circulated which we are afraid is being met with indifference on the part of citizens who are able and who should have enough just pride in an en terprise which has proven a sucess to make liberal donations The bane boys are not asking the citizens to buy the new instruments but are merely want ing help They have 75 of this amount in the bank each and every member will donate 15 or 20 which will make onlyleaveedThe band has been organized 15 months and we make the assertion without fear of contridiction that no other town in Kentucky of eight or ten times the size of Columbia has a better band This year the boys were award ed contracts for three fairs numerous picnics etc and filled every engage ment with credit With a high grade set instruments they will be able to furnish much better music and we believe that if the good people of Colum bia will look at the matter in the right way the necessary amount will soon be forth coming MANY IMPROVMENTS In last weeks News we mentioned the improvements being made on the principal streets of the town and some of the side walks The past week new crossings have been put in at the alley between Mr N M Tutt and the M E Church and between the residences of Mrs Nannie White

they may enjoy all of lifes blessings which they deserve EMIGRATION TO THE WEST Due Principally to Attractive and Persistent Advertising- of Railroads These are the days when the discon tented farmers fancy lightly turns to thoughts of moving The great rail way systems of the West flood the mail with manuals setting forth the beauties and virtues of this and that re gion each claiming to be par excellence the homeseekers paradise Agriculture has in this respect taken the place of mining In former times the new country that offered the most attractions to settlers from a dis tance was that in which gold was taken off of the ground in big yellow nuggets orinfinetessimal dust in these later days the search is still for a quick for tune but the medium exploited is the growing crop which can be turned into goldor greenbackby the slower pro cess of planting cultivating and har vesting and the pioneer now has for his emblems the gangplow and the reaping machine instead of the pick and pan Now the advertising circulars teem with prints in which the settlers com fortable homestead and happy family are shown projected against fields of heavyheaded grain trees groaning un der apples and peaches proportionately as large as watermelons and the cattle of a thousand hills grouped in a pen by the side of the railroad awaiting rapid shipment to markets where buyers stand in line longing for the chance to draw fat checks in payment While these pictures attract the eye few if any have bettered their condition by leaving our own fair county and the few who have left would probably as soon be back Of course exceptions can be found but they aremighty skase ACCEPTS CALL FROM BAPTISTS Rev J C Cook Will Preach Three Sundays in the Month Rev J C Cook of Canmer Hart county has accepted a

family life with all its duties fully performed and all its responsibilities lived up to as the life best worth living then evil days for the Commonwealth are at hand There are regions in our land and classes of our population where the birthrate has sunk below the death rate Surely it shouldneed no demonstration to show that willful sterility is from the standpoint of the nation from the standpoint of the race the one sin for humanI penalty is national death race death a sin for which there is no atonement asin which is the more dreadful exactly in propor womeniguilty thereof are in other re Isp cts in character and bodily and mental powers those whom for the sake of the State it would i be well to see the fathers and mothers of many healthy chil 4dren well brought up in homes made happy by their presence No man no woman can shirk the primary duties of life whether for love of ease and pleasure or for any other cause arid re tain his or her selfrespect In connection with the delays of the law I call your attention and the attention of theNationi to the prevalence of crime among us and above all to the epidemic of lynching and mob violence that springs up now in one part of our country now in an other Each section North South East or West has its own faults no section can with t wisdom spend its time jeering t1 1an f i N CLOTHING Men s and Boys Suits at prices to pleasb the buyer Large assortment Winter clothing just arrived to se lect from Buy where you do the bestLadies and Misses Jackets add Cloaks The very Newest Styles the faults of another section it should be busy trying to amend its own shortcomings To deal with the crime of corruption it is necessary to have an awakened public conscience and to supplement this by whatever legisla tion will add speed and certainty in the execution of the law When we deal with lynching even more is necessary A great ma ny white men are lynched but the crime is peculiarly frequent in respect to black men The greatest existing cause of lynch ing is the perpetration especially by black men of the heinous crime of rapethe most abom inable of all the category of crimes even worse than murder Mobs frequently avenge the corn mission of this crime by themselves torturing to death the man committing it thus avenging in bestial fashion a bestial deed and ablevel with the criminal Moreover where any crime committed by a member of one race against a member of anoth er race is avenged in such fash ion that it seems as if not the in dividual criminal but the whole race is attacked the result is to exasperate to the highest degree race feeling There is but one safe rule in dealing with black men as with white men it is the same rule that must be applied in dealing with rich men and poor men that is to treat each man whatever his color his creed or his social position rith even handed justice on his real worth as a man i White people owe it quite as much to themselves as to the coloredrace to treat well the colored man who shows by his life that he deserves such treat= ment for it is surely the highest wisdom to encourage in the col ored race all those individuals who are honest industrious laVlI abiding and who therefore make good and safe neighbors and citizens v Several factors must cooper ate in the improvement of the farmers condition He must have the chance to be educated in the widest possible sense in the sense which keeps ever n view the intimate relationship be tween the theory of education and the facts of life In all education we should widen our aims It is a good thing to produce a certain number of trained schol ars and students but the educa tion superintended by t eSt te L Boo1i SHOES Heavy boots and shoes for every day wear also the nicest assortment of Gents Ladies and Childrens fine shoes we have ever offered to the public See our special for children must seek rather to produce a hundred good citizens than mere ly one scholar and it must be turnednow and then from the class book to the study of the great book of nature itself This is especially true of the farmer as has been pointed out again and again by all observers most com petant to pass practical judgment on the problems of our country life A just war is in the long run far better for a nations soul than the most prosperous peace obtained by acqoiescence in wrong or injustice Moreover though it is criminal for a nation not to prepare for war so that it may escape the dreadful consequences of being defeated in war yet it must always be remembered that even to be defeated in war may be far better than not to have fought at all As has been well and finely said a beaten nation is not necesarily a disgraced na tion but the nation or man is dis graced if the obligation to defend right is shirked We should as a nation do everything in our power for the cause of honorable peace It is morally as indefensible for a nation to commit a wrong upon an other nation strong or weak as for an individual thus to wrong his fellows We should do all in our power to hasten the day when there shill be peace among the nationsa peace based upon justice and not upon cowardly submission to wrong I most earnestly hope that the bill to provide a lower tariff for or else absolute free trade in Y 11 lippinnproducts vail bcccmo 1 law No harm will come to any American

for the District of Colum bia a marked step in advance on the path of properly caring for the children Let me again urge that the Congress provide for a thorough investigation of the conditions of

November the 20th a crowd of Adair people namely Mrs M J Murrell who joining at Louisville Ky Misses Susie Mourning Susan Grissom and Martha Smith and Messrs J A Diddle J J and Joe Hunter W L Grady Cornelius Gowen J P Dohoney Mont Murrell Basil Chapman B F Grissom Mrs J K Robertson and little son Jimmie started on a trip to tQuanah Texas At this place we stopped at Taylor house owned by Dr E F Taylor late ly from Green county He seem ed to have a flourishing business from an evidence of his hotel be ing enlarged and improved to meet an increasing patronage by the public in general We had the pleasure of visiting Mr E H Hughes and his fam ily Mrs Kate Hughes and son James who all left old Adair a i few weeks before Mr Hughes J is pleasantly situated in a cosy home in the city and is interest houseiHis daughter Miss Cary and his mother both felt very much improved in health since a change of location From this place Mr Grady went down to Brownwood Texas while the Murrell folks Misses Mourning and Smith Mrs Robertson Mr Dohoney Mr B F Grissom and sister went on to this destination reaching it on Saturday night the 24th From St Louis to Quanah Texas two special chartered trains with several coaches each were ordered on the tracks to carry a crowd of home seekers out West On the same day there came an unusually heavy sleet thus laying telephone poles and lines as well as broken trees everywhere along the tracks so all communications were entirely shut off and our trains had to travel more slowly and run by the means of heavyb snow storm occurred in the Pan Handle country and New Mexico a few days previous materially blockaded all the rail roads for several days This country experienced aI most heavy snowfall together with a norther which contin ued for 48 hourse resulting in aI 12 inch snow on the average and the drifts were as high as about six feet Our people declared that the snow was just the best i thing that could have come to this country Otherwise we have been having a whole week of drizzling rain So weve had fully two weeks of thoroughly soaking spell over which fact the people in general are greatly enthusiastic and certainly lurk ing forward to never brighter a prospect for this great country So noticably has Elida grow in so short a time and also ha the real estate advanced rapidly that so many people from all the parts have kept on coming here and the free government lands are being taken up at a rapid rate now the land can not b taken up any nearer than 15 to 20 miles out ir Mr GW Robertson hashad a comfortable house under con 1ft f struction on his son Freds claim Dr C M Murrell has been en joying an excellent practice at his profession as well as a patronage in his drug store Mr J P Dohoney of Ky is to build a house on his daughter Miss Bessies claim before his returnA is on movement to appoint Mr John Denny one of your Adair young enterprising fellows as a postmaster of Elida our former postmaster Mr Lum having resigned We feel confi dent that our John may as yet win the honor Mr Elbert Nell is the postmas ter at a new station below Port alesThis section is largely repre sented by the Kentucky people more so by the Adair and they are all well contented and satis fied to stay and grow up with this country notwithstanding the present surroundings incident to the pioneer life they are doing remarkably well B F GRISSOM Doubtless a few lines from this point would be read with in terest by many of my friends in Adair and adjoining counties- I find that every person who planted their crops in time have plenty to do them and are selling feed corn at 50 cents per bushel Kaffir corn at 6 per ton The people who came here and have worked have done well- I left home expecting to r turn on a 30 day ticket but found things so different to what I was led to believe in Kentucky that I decided to remain here for some time at least The soil here is a rich red and dark loamy that will produce corn maize Kaffir corn millet alfalfa wheat oats barley vegatables of all kinds perI iworld can be raised here notwithstanding what a few in and around Columbia say to the con trary I do not wish to criticise but there are a few parties in Columbia that can give you more information about New Mexico than one who has lived here for 5 or 6 years andat the same time these parties could not tell you where the territory is located on the map I would say to anyone old or young who has not been so fortnnate as to inherit a good home he had better come to getITexasjtaken at the present rate of filing We had an 8 inch snow to fall on the 17 CV 11 j have had four good rains and the consequences we have plenty of mud I will have my home com pleted in 10 days and the latch- string will be found
